Mad cartoonist, Al Jaffee, is still going strong at age 95.He has also set a record as the oldest working cartoonist.

At 95 years old, Mad Magazine’s Al Jaffee is the oldest working cartoonist, and he has the certificate from Guinness World Records to prove it. The satirist has worked with everyone from Stan Lee to EC Comics founder William Gaines over his career’s 73-year span, though he will probably go down in comics history as the inventor of the “fold-in”, a transformable painting that originally mocked lavish centerfolds in magazines like National Geographic and Playboy and later became Jaffee’s calling card. Earlier this year he made time to discuss political satire and the way cartoons have changed with the Guardian. The presidential campaign hadn’t yet kicked into high gear, but Jaffee’s observations have aged well.

Quotes of The Day

There will come a time when the gun owners of America, the law-abiding gun owners of America, will be the Rosa Parks and we will sit down on the front seat of the bus, case closed.-Ted Nugent

The court makes an amazing amount of decisions that ought to be made by the people.-Antonin Scalia

The truth about these dysfunctional, downscale communities is that they deserve to die. Economically, they are negative assets. Morally, they are indefensible.”-Kevin Williamson of National Review

The photo? No, it's not Kevin Williamson it's Mr. Potter.

Just remember this, Mr. Potter, Kev that this rabble you're talking about... they do most of the working and paying and living and dying in this community country.

The last but not least Quote of The Day

My point is that populism is not intrinsically a bad thing. It may be either positive or negative according to context. The essential feature of all populist movements is their belief that an elite is governing in its own interests rather than that of the general population. To make an obvious point, the validity of the populist argument depends on the extent to which that assessment is accurate.-Daniel Hannan

The big question next January is Obamacare repeal and replace. No word if Jonathan Gruber is related to Kevin Williamson. Gruber who was a driving force in Obamacare pointed out "“the stupidity of the American voter.” Let's hope the GOP doesn't feel the same way.

If the “accomplishment” is that the American electorate is now blaming their high health care bills on Democratic politicians, rather than on doctors, drug companies, or insurance executives, it is indeed pretty great, though perhaps not exactly in the way Professor Gruber intended it to be.

It is, in any event, a cautionary tale for Republicans who hope to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. If voters are going to start blaming politicians for their health insurance and medical bills, the anger in the next election could be directed at the Republicans who now hold control of the White House and both houses of Congress. If the Republicans hope to do better than President Obama, Mrs. Clinton, and Professor Gruber, they may want to start from the premise that American voters aren’t stupid


Its been a week since the presidential election. The smirks and schadenboners are starting to fade. While the ONT is willing to move on it appears the left is not. Example, Steve Bannon. Steve Bannon makes some coin every time a rerun of Seinfeld is shown. Good for him. He's living rent free in their heads.

If you are going to protest, don't you think you should have voted? The left, too much money in their pockets and swimming in hypocrisy.

The Democrats are running around calling Hillary the winner of the popular vote. They are clamoring for a change of electoral college. Barbara Boxer has been in the senate for years and years and years. Now that it is in lame duck session with her party out of power she introduces legislation for a constitutional amendment. Nice show boating there Babs. Fortunately she is retiring, unfortunately her replacement is another Prog ditz.

FWIW the next link is from Info Wars. It appears that voter fraud gave Hillary the popular vote win. TFG indicated prior to the election that illegals could vote without recrimination.

It's about time for voter rolls to be scrutinized and purged. Photo ID should be the law of the land in order to vote. If the Left wants to help "disenfranchised" folks they can haul them to the appropriate clerk's office and help them obtain a valid ID card. The ONT wouldn't be opposed to purple ink on one's thumb either.

What do you get when you cross Kathleen Sebeilus and Hillary Clinton? The United Kingdom's NHS employees are caught in an email nightmare. The ONT snorted remains neutral.

The NHS's 1.2 million employees are currently trapped in a "reply-all" email hell.

A "test" email was accidentally sent to everyone who works at the UK health service — prompting a series of reply-all responses from annoyed recipients going out to all 1-million-plus employees of the organisations.

An NHS employee told Business Insider that there have been at least 120 replies so far — meaning that more than 140 million needless emails have been sent across the NHS's network today. As a result, they said, its email systems are running "very slow today."

The email problem seems to be the least of their problems at the moment. The NHS is busy trying to keep cuts secret. Government and transparency, oil and water.

Full details of 44 reviews of services around the country - which involve closing some A&Es or, in one case, a whole hospital - are yet to emerge.

That is because NHS England told local managers to keep the plans "out of the public domain" and avoid requests for information, the King's Fund suggested.

Managers were even told how to reject freedom of information requests.

The King's Fund report did not include any details of cuts, but from the leaks and plans that have been published so far a partial picture is emerging of what is involved.

When the Left admits Obamacare is a failure this is the crap they will push next.

Are you lonely? Do you know someone who is lonely? Have you tried the sure-fire lonesomeness ender?

Dementia overtakes heart disease as #1 killer in England.

David Bowie's Rebel Rebel performed by a 1,000 member band.

When will people learn there are rules to social media use? Columbia University suspends wrestling team. Offensive text messages obviously these kids aren't being taught the right things.

Columbia University suspended its wrestling team's season on Monday while it investigates a leak of illicit text messages sent among team members, The New York Times reported.

The messages, shared on the private messaging app GroupMe, were peppered with derogatory references to women, minorities, and gay people. Screenshots of the messages were made public by independent student-run news site Bwog.

The university described the inflammatory messages as "appalling" in a statement.

"Columbia University has zero tolerance in its athletics programs for the group messaging and texts sent by several members of the men’s varsity wrestling team. They are appalling, at odds with the core values of the University, violate team guidelines, and have no place in our community," the statement said.


While we are on college students. Good Lord weren't any of them taught about loss and disappointment as children growing up? The only thing that is missing for their comfort is sitting on Mommy's lap sucking their thumb.

Last week, right after the election of Donald Trump, Barnard’s Student Life department released a guided video tour of the Social Justice Lounge encouraging students to visit during its normal hours of operation, Monday through Friday between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.

As the video shows, the room has “community guidelines,” and encourages the use of “I” statements and trigger warnings.

It also features framed photos of female activists, “social justice oriented texts” that students may freely borrow, multiple packs of Crayola Crayons, and loose-leaf sheets of coloring pages.

According to The Columbia Spectator, students from both Barnard and nearby Columbia University came “running, screaming, and crying” to the campus Quad when Trump’s victory was announced, subsequently protested Trump’s victory, and even requested that their professors postpone midterms after learning about the news.


Parenting. One of the hardest jobs one will ever have. Over the past several months the failure of certain parents has been on full display. Meet Chris Burr Martin a 48 year old father of 3.

The problem with monopolies is that they can do just about anything. Charter Cable customer sues for bogus charges.

Not all news is bad news. As a matter of fact here is some Yummy news. Oreo will be introducing the new Big Crunch candy bar. The ONT suggests launching it in the states that passed the recreational marijuana laws. Just an idea.

The Genius Award Winner.

Kleenex warning issued. The feel good story of the day.

As we approach Thanksgiving, why not thank Ace for all of the good work he does.Hitting the tip jar is an easy thing to do.

ONT Tips, loose change and empty milk jugs can be sent here, or here petmorons at gmail. Your humble ONT host will be gone until Thanksgiving. Please play nice with the guest COBs. Rumor has it that Ace will be sitting in one night.

The Group, you will find populism here.


The ONT has been brought to you by masculinity.

44 Karl Denninger has been saying till he's blue in the face that the real problem with health care in America is that providers act as monopolies in violation of existing antitrust laws.

It's like going to the supermarket, filling your shopping cart, and not knowing what you will pay until you get to the cash register. Ot like taking your car to the mechanic, having the work done, and then presented with a bill at the end, without having any idea what the work will cost beforehand. That is clearly illegal, and that needs to be enforced among medical providers and drug companies as well.

Pricing for medical procedures, tests, and drugs needs to be transparent so that consumers can shop around before they need the work done.

Well, it can't be exactly predicted, because somethings vary depending on what happens.

Colonoscopy, for example.

Baseline, maybe 1500 bucks. What if they find a polyp? You've just added a biopsy to the cost.


Knee replacement? 60k, unless they find some issue they weren't counting on, or you start bleeding uncontrollably and need several units of blood, or maybe you just won't come out of the anesthesia and have to stay in recovery longer, or maybe you go into cardiac arrest and have to go to the CCU...

There are plenty of reasons why you can't tell exactly what something is going to cost. You can get a rough estimate for anything, but it is not unusual for that to change.

107 I feel called upon to point out that while that young lady being mocked by her father on Twitter seems flighty and narcissistic to most folks... in a different context, the Horde would be making a variety of comments appreciating the young woman's mode of dress, or lack thereof.


Is it that her pictures are selfies versus an official photoshoot? Surely can't be the square yardage of cloth she's wearing; the Horde regularly posts pictures and comments appreciatively on pictures of girls wearing less. Cheerleaders, Kate Upton, girls at random... and that girl's other pictures are far more covered up. So, if the problem is her mode of dress, why the lack of complaint about the other images?


And if the problem is the seeming vanity of the selfie, what makes the girl's intention (to be admired by others) any different than having someone else take the photo?

Chi, Jeffrey Wells is a Hollywood blogger with a blog of his own, Hollywood Elsewhere, and he's been throwing one of the all-time biggest, dragged-out, most hysterical meltdown tantrums over Trump's win that you *ever* saw in your lifetime.

The guy really is unhinged. He's the guy who found the Michael Shannon article I linked above, and he of course *loved* everything this pig had to say. Also, I had a chance to actually converse a bit with Wells directly via his comment section, and he came out as a complete proud classist bigot. He won't even allow himself to eat barbecued foods, and said that they're "working-class fart food."

Just a loon. But I'm learning from him... mainly to laugh at these people, rather than let them make me angry.

Would love to hear from others about whether to keep talking about Jeffrey Wells. Thanks in advance!

I don't know anyone with a tattoo over forty-five who is happy about it. Not a single one, and I know a lotta folks with tattoos.

And Selleck is, I think, a better actor than he's been given the roles to show.

Plus, he carried a 1911 in his role as Magnum P.I. He did a fine job in his role as co-star to the venerable .45 ACP.

152 Tom Selleck should be the poster child for the physical deformities caused by testosterone deformity syndrome.

This disease afflicts approximately 50% of women, and is easily treated by removing the tumors at birth that produce this toxin. Sadly, women born with this disease will be unable to bear children, but they can live fulfilling lives as women, free of the grotesque hideous deformities wrought by toxic testosterone, if it is caught early enough and they are given hormone therapy.

153 It's really rather odd that a "white supremacist" would work for Goldman Sachs, make a ton of coin with "Seinfeld" and publish Brietbart.

Bannon doesn't seem to have many problems with the Joos.

And of course, Trump himself, born and bred New Yorker, I'm sure he never had any business dealings with Jews and probably doesn't even know his daughter is one.

I don't understand the line of thinking. I know *my* perspective; not a thing wrong with it, girls wanna be admired, I'm happy to admire 'em, the good Lord made 'em to be alluring, and hot dang if He didn't deliver in spades on that.

Don't really comprehend the seeming vapidity, and I am not being sarcastic or confrontational; I am genuinely confused. I would be willing to bet a thousand dollars that every single woman ever posted in a picture here on Ace of Spades in the comments has a few hundred selfies on her Instagram or Facebook o.o so I still cannot ascertain any difference...

Posted by: Kinley Ardal at November 15, 2016 10:44 PM (kSJLl)

The vapid stupidity comes from her posting the selfies on instagram, and not getting paid for it. And she is probably drawing stalkers, too. Paid models get some degree of privacy, if they want it. Plus getting all the tats and piercings is evidence of bad decision-making.

Face it. The girl looks like her future career choice will be "stripper".

166 I feel called upon to point out that while that young lady being mocked by her father on Twitter seems flighty and narcissistic to most folks... in a different context, the Horde would be making a variety of comments appreciating the young woman's mode of dress, or lack thereof.


Is it that her pictures are selfies versus an official photoshoot? Surely can't be the square yardage of cloth she's wearing; the Horde regularly posts pictures and comments appreciatively on pictures of girls wearing less. Cheerleaders, Kate Upton, girls at random... and that girl's other pictures are far more covered up. So, if the problem is her mode of dress, why the lack of complaint about the other images?


And if the problem is the seeming vanity of the selfie, what makes the girl's intention (to be admired by others) any different than having someone else take the photo?

Just a tidbit of behavioral inconsistency to consider over the course of the evening.

And Selleck is, I think, a better actor than he's been given the roles to show.

Plus, he carried a 1911 in his role as Magnum P.I. He did a fine job in his role as co-star to the venerable .45 ACP.

Watching Bonanza, GI Party that I'll finish up tomorrow, got some shopping out of the way, and I pissed off two heffers that took offense at my "Deplorable Me" bumpersticker and let me know they were very upset via numerous one-fingered salutes

Wasn't very amused that they tried to follow me home, at one point pulling up beside me and yelling, while their hellspawn (5 or 6 of them) are cracking the hell up.

I rolled my window down, went into my console and pulled out my trusty Sig P938.

I nodded, smiled and went on my merry way.

261 Okay, so I'll add Longest Yard to my Reynolds list. That was a good film that I've not seen in quite a while.

Boogie Nights? It was fun and funny, but, well.... I've seen it now.

And I'd rather see a good edit of Deliverance, with just the whitewater scenes, Dueling Banjos, and the killer arrow shots near the end. Not cause the other parts are bad, but I've seen it enough times now that I just don't care about all the rest.

At least in Smokey & The Bandit, we had Sally Fields in her prime, and some real chemistry between her and ol' Burt.

And per the above, concur. Quigley Down Under is required viewing, not only for young men, but also for young ladies, so they might begin to learn what to expect from a man, versus an overgrown adolescent.

In all, Selleck's work and career puts him miles ahead in the Actor category over Reynolds, and that's without a put down to Reynolds.

One kind of interesting, but also kind of stupid/sheltered, commenter from Norway (named, of all things, "Magga") posted, forget whose fault this is; the "fault" for this is all on Trump voters. I disagreed, stating that one of the REALLY big bad guys in the election outcome was that the DNC allowed itself to fall so in love with Hillary, and that if they could have managed to somehow give the nom to an icky white male, Joe Biden, they *would have won.* (I admit I still think that BTW, never mind all the shortocomings we know about Biden.)

Anyway, Jeff immediately responded to me: "That's true, Biden would have won."

THE NEXT MORNING, big new comment from Wells that started with the very statement: "If Joe Biden had run instead of Hillary, he would be the one celebrating victory today."

* And just YESTERDAY, Wells managed to do an actual post about, of all things, entertainment (the original mission of his blog). He posted a nice review of the upcoming One-Eyed Jacks bluray from Criterion.

I decided to stay unpolitical and just tell him, "yup, I've already pre-ordered my copy at Amazon, and btw what do you think of the new 40th anniversary bluray of Taxi Driver?" Wells immediately responded "Taxi Driver again?!?" and went on about how he's still very happy with his old bluray edition, then went on a tangent he's harped on for years about the ending bloody scene and how it was color-desaturated by Scorsese, in order to get an R rating (rather than an X) in 1976.

Anyway? ONE HOUR LATER, Wells posted an *even longer* rant on this subject. And he started it, "somebody asked me my thoughts on the new 40th anniversary Taxi Driver bluray..."

So, you know. LOL. I'm thinking seriously now of sending Wells an email: "Hey, you know what I think you should do that would REALLY help you get your anti-Trump voice heard?? Go the nearest cop in West Hollywood, and start screaming at him. Blame HIM PERSONALLY for Trump's win. Tell 'em about how if it weren't for forces of fascist order such as him, we'd have Hillary going into office now instead of Orange Hitler." (Orange Hitler is Jeff's preferred nickname for Trump.)

LOL, I can just see Wells' first post 36 hours later: "I haven't posted anything recently because I was just stuck in a jail cell for 12 hours for hassling a cop..."

;-)

If I like something, I buy shirts or other swag. I have a bunch of Homestar Runner stuff from, like, 2004 - a shirt, a hoodie, a keychain.

297 MAGA @207, just a rough summary from early numbers, but T-Rump was, vs. Romney/2012:

+1 white voters
+7 black voters
+8 "Hispanic"
+5 18-29 yr olds
+16 income less than $30K


These numbers may be unreliable, inexact, or change (dunno how such data is generated apart from exit polling, and I really wonder about sample size and quality in such polls).


Anywhoo. Surely a nightmare when your GOP prez candidate not only wins, but increases your take of non-white voters, and lower-income voters.

I'd say "end abortion" but I know that will not be a possibility. Maybe eventually, with a strongly conservative Supreme Court. So, aside from that...


1- Tear down every single aspect of the federal government that isn't roads and defense, fire as many people as possible, viciously prosecute anyone who was abusing their position.

2- Complain about lack of Congressional term limits. Loudly. Frequently. Ceaselessly. Even the friggin Lefties are angry at their leaders right now - now is the time to strike. Divide and conquer.

3- For the duration of his presidency, do not freakin' drag us into any more bloody wars on the other side of the planet. My heart bleeds for the people under the oppression of Islam - it really does. It burns me violently. I can't imagine living in such an ass-backwards society - but we can't change Islam with a war unless we literally start turning the Middle East into a three-thousand-mile-wide mirror with nukes. Any ground fighting done won't be me or the people I know fighting and dying for the oppressed people over there, it'll be someone else's son or daughter or brother or sister or friend.

I agree. I am fine with shooting my mouth off politically. I actually am a bit overbearing. However, I don't put a sign in front of my house or a bumper sticker on my car because I would be concerned about vandalism. The people I talk to in real life are decent and well-adjusted enough that I can express my views, disagree with them, and then still have decent relationships. But the population at large? I wouldn't trust them to behave like civilized human beings. People need their jobs, and expressing unpopular views could have serious consequences.

And I live in Michigan. I can't imagine what it could do to your life, if you have a job in a region where extreme liberalism is the standard. As I've said before, Michigan democrats tend to be different from a lot of California and Manhattan democrats. If you're in Michigan and a democrat gets down on you for being conservative, all you have to do is say, " Yeah, but they want gun control." Or, " Yeah, but it just bugs me that I worked my butt off for everything I have while other people can spend their entire adult lives living off welfare." It's easier to be open in Michigan.

333 Ben Macintyre wrote a great book about Operation Mincemeat, titled "Operation Mincemeat," natch. One thing about the whole operation - it's not certain that the ruse really worked. The information had to get passed up through various officials before it made it to Munich, and Macintyre suspected that several of them were suspicious, but decided to go along with it because they could see how the war was going and wanted it to end.

Macintyre has written several other really good books about WWII. My favorite is "Agent Zigzag" about a petty crook in England who offered to spy for the Germans and then decided to become a double agent. Fascinating story.

345 It's about time for voter rolls to be scrutinized and purged.

And people prosecuted and seriously punished for any sort of voter fraud. Further, any non-citizen who is found to have even tried to register to vote needs to have his visa/freen card immediately revoked and his ass deported on the next bus/plane to the shithole he came from.

Photo ID should be the law of the land in order to vote.

And any state that issues state ID, of any sort, to illegals is to immediately lose all federal funding along with those pushing and implementing those laws being held liable in federal court for their treasonous actions - and it is clearly TREASON as they are giving aid and comfort to an invasion.

If the Left wants to help "disenfranchised" folks they can haul them to the appropriate clerk's office and help them obtain a valid ID card.

All of these people seem to be able to get ID and jump through the hoops necessary to collect their leech checks, already.

The ONT wouldn't be opposed to purple ink on one's thumb either.

I am totally opposed to that. We are not some third world shithole (even though we have a sizable number of citizens who are). Further, you institute something like that and you'll find leftists running around on election day trying to stain the fingers of anyone they think is a Republican or a conservative.

What is needed is not purple staining but vigorous and ruthless enforcement of election law and consequences for violations that will make people's heads spin. Remember that douchebag who worked for ACORN in Ohio and was found, in addition to running GOTV crimes, to have voted both at his school in another state and at home ... and he was punished only by having one of his illegal votes disallowed - though he was still allowed to submit his "legal" vote? That asshole needed to have his registration pulled from everywhere, his right to vote pulled for his crimes and be jailed for fucking with the election system - which is supposed to be held in the highest regard and which needs to have its integrity assured. THAT is how voting must be treated. Not with purple fingers like some primitive.

I liked the pho that I got in my hometown in CO but what they serve here in TX is completely different (and full of cilantro that I can't eat). I don't know which is *actual* pho. The one I had in CO had sliced grilled lamb (which is probably why they're out of business) in the broth and then little dishes of pickled finely sliced carrots and radishes, chopped peanuts, and a red pepper flake/vinegar mix. I just dumped all of it in and it was delicious. I don't remember what the TX one had (lamb wasn't an option) other than the cilantro because I have apparently blocked it from my memory.

Uh, no. He got pissed at Gawker, and rightfully so, but that was just incidental, not a reflection of his character in general. He's no conservative, just a generic gay activist. The most impotant principle in his life are his sexual impulses. He's just another stupid pink mafiosi.

356 Top Three Trump agenda items.

End the Departments of Education, Energy and Environment. I'll count those three as one co-mingled item.

Reset the military to traditional values and renew their equipment as a matter of utmost priority.

Build an unassailable wall around 2nd Amendment rights, by all means possible, and some yet not imagined.

And I'll go with a fourth imperative, too.

Appoint his lovely daughter as Press Secretary.

Just having her smokin' hot beauty behind that podium would rage-stroke all the feminizai harridan lefty (assumed) female reporters, render their male counterparts as ineffectual, jabbering beta males, flailing in the presence of a world class beauty and true Alpha female.

All that, and as we've seen in campaign interviews, she's sharp, quick and cuts no slack to the slackers.

Hillary on the other hand, doesn't have a clue about working class people. She's running around saying that the rich don't pay enough taxes, while she and hubby are worth a couple hundred million dollars.

Of course Vietnamese food, esp. in Vietnam, is tremendously varied and excellent. One of the true food cultures, at worst right up at the top of the second tier, maybe *in* the top tier. But you won't find a lot of it in the US.


Banh mi are amazing. Was puzzled 10 years ago they had not achieved much, much greater penetration in the wider US food culture. By now? Even more puzzled. Apart from a very few independent delis, and a small experiment by Yum Brands (?) in TX, still strictly an "ethnic" thing.

Yes. There is a pervasive view throughout the judiciary and law academia that laws (including the constitution) are merely "standard" and not "rules." (literally the language they use.)

So instead of a strict test for something (rules), they think every law / statute / common law precedent is merely a standard -- so instead of checking every box (as you would for a rule), you, as the judge, get to use your discretion to decide what means what and what would really be enforced and how.

In other words, for many judges, the law is completely arbitrary.

Which makes us a nation of men, not a nation of laws.

The prob with Kev & the con rags are they are insulated bubble people living in cocooned faculty lounges. Discussing theory and actually implementing it in an imperfect world are 2 different things.

421 SCOTUS picks, while crucial, will only temporarily neutralize the problem (court over-reach, accompanied by evaporation of integrity and standards and their replacement with unaccountable de facto legislation).


No political capital need be expended when one is serially taking on politically one-sided issues (there is no national political price to be paid for abolishing O-care or restoring rule of law to immigration - both things are supported by hefty majorities, which will grown even more once successful action is under way). These are both almost pure upside situations - rare in politics, except after eight years of such outrageous rule contrary to the national will.


Senate GOP should absolutely change Senate Rules as required to achieve key objectives. Reid and the Dems blew the place up to pack the DC Circuit court. Pretending not to recognize that was among the most brazen of the GOP's many inexcusable transgressions. Doubt they will continue to pretend if T-Rump brings the political pressure on the big, one-side issues - and soon.

Not when the dominant majority (in both schools and on the bench, as Harry notes) simply rejects any sort of integrity and brazenly just makes s**t up (I find this description better than more academic ones).


Very bolshevik - just ruthless any-means-to-an-an-end ...... that end being almost always, of course, soft fascist authoritarian social engineering that is the theoretical opposite of everything greatest and best in American history and governance.


But it's also a national low IQ problem, I fear.


Listen to some of the oral arguments during the first O-care debacle, er, case. Jaw-dropping. Not a single entity in the room - plantiffs, solicitor general's people, any justice - have the slightest f***ing idea what they're talking about.


Which in a way is logical, since they have no business even talking about the subject (health care finance and insurance). The US judiciary has detonated its legimitacy. Don't see it coming back.


Best hope is to win enough elections and find enough people willing to ruthlessly misuse the system just as brazenly, but for ends at least somewhat compatible with American and western ideals of freedom, fairness, and an open society.

No, I never met Sam Elliott but I did meet his wife, Katherine Ross, before she married him. She was performing in a play in DC and I was working room service in the hotel where she was staying.

She ate at the hotel in the evening before every performance. It was always 2 soft-boiled or scrambled eggs, crisp bacon, and a bowl of mixed berries. I had to take the bacon back the first time because it wasn't crisp enough --- and she was very gentle and apologetic about that.

She was beautiful without make-up, BTW.
Stunning, really.
Pleasant and unassuming, very quiet and reserved.
And she left me a $50 tip for only 3 nights of service--- which was yuuuuuuge back then.

463 The filibuster is entirely a matter of Senate rules. Which, under the constitution, the Senate makes up itself - and changes them any time it sees fit.


Of course it evolved to be one of the wondrous checks on majoritarian abuse, or too energetic governance, in America's unique system of limited government.


As that system has essentially been ruined by those seeking to grab greater power while destroying freedom and building a sullen, semi-European mediocracy, it's time to adapt and over-come, in a battlefield sense.

Frankly, the article written by some guy who writes for Cracked was spot on about small town America and why it voted for Trump. Those who were able to leave, did so. Its just sad what it looks like now. My Dad worked in the mills until '93 when it shut down for good. I still don't think its a good idea to abandon them.

505 Williamson, a long-time critic of The Donald, essentially agrees that he doesn't support any policies or rhetoric directly tailored to the working-class - particularly about jobs being taken by outsourcing and immigration - because it would be wrong to do so.

"It is immoral because it perpetuates a lie: that the white working class that finds itself attracted to Trump has been victimized by outside forces," the NR roving correspondent writes. "[N]obody did this to them. They failed themselves."

++++

http://dailycaller.com/2016/03/12/national-review-
writer-working-class-communities-deserve-to-die/

Williamson wrote in opposition to the idea that open borders, both in the form of free trade as well as unchecked immigration, are a problem. He sees nothing wrong with shipping factories out and bringing immigrants in. If you are one of the people displaced by these government policies, well, that's your own damn fault. Learn a new trade and move out of your community is his solution for you.

Trump offers another form of a solution: crack down on immigration and discourage moving American manufacturing out of the country. If that sounds like bad policy to you, then perhaps Hillary is more your speed.

521 The "You can run, but you'll only die tired" meme, is a patch sold at every gun show in 'Merica.

First I'd encountered that saying was in some of the riflery literature. Might've been Plaster, could've been Hatcher. Long time ago, so I don't quite remember....accurately.

In the shooting world though, there is a subset of very serious riflemen, Military graduates of various Sniper Schools, civilian F-Class shooters, (moron Weasel is one such, IIRC?), and open country hunters, who strive to master the science and art of extended range, extreme precision shooting.

Alas, as with any element of the shooting world, there is the creature we call the "Gun Show Commando". Has all of the patches, and none of the training. And much less the accomplishments thereof.

I do love showing up to a shooting event, clad in eye-wateringly bright Hawaiian shirt, not a stitch of 5.11 wear to be found, plain ordinary gun and equipment. And then turning in a good, if not a winning, score.

And no Sniper patches, you can be assured.

I think one particular aspect of this that causes a lot of problems gets missed.

Some feminists end up with pajama boys, yes.

But a lot of them end up as girl #3 booty calls. They believe themselves to deserve a "sexier" match then the pool of guys willing to date them....but in the male "player" segment, many aren't as picky about their "side girls" as they are about their main female interests.

This then exposes said feminists to some of the worst in male behavior. They presume this is the way all men behave because they don't know any better and they've cut off their less feminist friends and family...

Of course they'd be significantly happier if they lowered the chips on their shoulders and made peace with female beauty standards but...their fellow feminists aren't going to let them do that...

You can get people to pay significantly more for "prestige" products with the right media effort around it - look at "organic" or "environmentally friendly" products.

To accomplish this with made in America products you'd have to rebuild the media from the ground up....which isn't happening.

Its actually more believable that you could make the pricing more attractive by decimating domestic regulations, and yes protectionism.

Protectionism is a dirty word for good reasons, but if the choice is to pay someone's living wage through a tariff and a real job for them, or to cut them an SSDI check, I don't really see the former as the worst choice.

550 Umm, not so sure about either case, JEM.


Incandescents were, as you recall, banned. I doubt they'd have been replaced economically by now, if ever - seems unlikely.


And I don't think coal for electricity generation has been priced out of being competitive by gas. It really varies regionally, as delivery networks for the two fuels are not uniform or universal.


Could be fairly complicated to attempt apples-apples comparisons by factoring in all the non-market (regulatory) fingers on the various scales.


And even this latter exercise, to be serious, would have to use reasonable standards and concepts for environment protection - which are not the ones underlying the war on coal.

I think we are speaking past each other.
And quite frankly - since KW ain't giving me any fun loving tonight, I'm tired of defending him personally which was never my intention ( given the feelings around here)

But I throw this out there - are we willing to pay 10, 25, 50 percent more for a tee shirt just because Jenny from Rochester made it and we thought she was hawt in HS?

Ok I know that's a cheap shot throw away line but if I were sober (which i assure you is not the case) we could have a real discussion about - and given this crew it would be more informed than a Senate hearing on Pacific trade treaties.

If Jenny is out of work, society as a whole is going to be paying some costs. I would rather see Jenny productively employed even if it does mean that shirts cost a bit more.

556 #536 But a lot of them end up as girl #3 booty calls. They believe themselves
to deserve a "sexier" match then the pool of guys willing to date
them....but in the male "player" segment, many aren't as picky about
their "side girls" as they are about their main female interests.



This then exposes said feminists to some of the worst in male
behavior. They presume this is the way all men behave because they don't
know any better and they've cut off their less feminist friends and
family...

=======================


It really is true that the fact that so many women make themselves sexually available drives down their value overall. Supply and demand.

Then it also drives up the maintenance requirements.

And who will he destroy?

All your life you've never seen a warlord
Riding like the wind
Will you pray as he sends you to Heaven?
Are you free of sin?

His envoy demanded food,
And you gave him execution;
Genghis thinks that was really rude,
And he brings you retribution.

Riding like the wind
Will you pray as he sends you to Heaven?
Are you free of sin? Are you free of sin?

Are you free of sin? Are you free of sin?

565 If the "accomplishment" is that the American electorate is now blaming their high health care bills on Democratic politicians, rather than on doctors, drug companies, or insurance executives, it is indeed pretty great, though perhaps not exactly in the way Professor Gruber intended it to be.

Why is this an either or? doctors, drug companies and the healthcare insurance lobby has used regulatory capture, using government as a mechanism to screw people over. The number of doctors, for instance, is regulated by government. Restrict the members of the guild artificially, to reduce supply and drive up the price. And of course O'Care. Force everyone to buy health insurance.

F*CK Ghengis Khan.

In Xanadu did Kubla F*CKING Khan
A stately pleasure dome decree:
Where Alph, the sacred river, ran
Through caverns measureless to man
Down to a sunless sea.
So twice five miles of fertile ground
With walls and towers were girdled round:
And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills,
Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree;
And here were forests ancient as the hills,
Enfolding sunny spots of greenery.

But oh! that deep romantic chasm which slanted
Down the green hill athwart a cedarn cover!
A savage place! as holy and enchanted
As e'er beneath a waning moon was haunted
By woman wailing for her demon lover!
And from this chasm, with ceaseless turmoil seething,
As if this earth in fast thick pants were breathing,
A mighty fountain momently was forced:
Amid whose swift half-intermitted burst
Huge fragments vaulted like rebounding hail,
Or chaffy grain beneath the thresher's flail:
And 'mid these dancing rocks at once and ever
It flung up momently the sacred river.
Five miles meandering with a mazy motion
Through wood and dale the sacred river ran,
Then reached the caverns measureless to man,
And sank in tumult to a lifeless ocean:
And 'mid this tumult Kubla heard from far
Ancestral voices prophesying war!

The shadow of the dome of pleasure
Floated midway on the waves;
Where was heard the mingled measure
From the fountain and the caves.
It was a miracle of rare device,
A sunny pleasure-dome with caves of ice!
A damsel with a dulcimer
In a vision once I saw;
It was an Abyssinian maid,
And on her dulcimer she played,
Singing of Mount Abora.
Could I revive within me
Her symphony and song,
To such a deep delight 'twould win me,
That with music loud and long,
I would build that dome in air,
That sunny dome! those caves of ice!
And all who heard should see them there,
And all should cry, Beware! Beware!
His flashing eyes, his floating hair!
Weave a circle round him thrice,
And close your eyes with holy dread,
For he on honey-dew hath fed,
And drunk the milk of Paradise.

606 Well, I just learned afresh why I never watch TV news. After popping the evening's DVD out of the DVD player coincidentally at exactly 10pm, the screen went to TV mode and behold, the local evening news was starting.

What were the TOP THREE stories leading the broadcast? (Note that this is local news, supposed to normally cover stuff like cats stuck in trees and fender-benders on the freeway). Here they were:

#1: OMG a Hate Crime in San Francisco! A Hispanic woman claims that an elderly bum yelled something at her about her ethnicity, as she walked in a park. No witnesses. No proof. No actual violence -- just a bum yelling. Police arrested a nearby bum, but had to let him go, since they had nothing on him. NEWS OF THE NIGHT! Let us now interview seven different experts about the "Trump Hate Crime Wave" engulfing the nation.

#2. OMG a Hate Crime in Millbrae! A tweaking meth-head having a public drug freakout in the street apparently screamed "I'm white!" which was overheard by passing minorities. Cue the experts and the "Trump-inspired hate crimes" again.

#3. OMG a feminist a Cal claims that three years ago a professor acted all "interested" in her 'n' stuff, how gross, call out the Safe Spaces Lynch Mob to put his head on a spike! Must be Trump's fault, despite happening three years ago!

I turned it off after that. Probably the next 12 stories were along the same lines.

Well, there was one about a bunch of (probably 2nd grade, as the writing paper had the dashed line between each pair of solid lines) students writing letters to President Elect Trump, asking him to not start a war, or to hate .... and a teacher (female, no makeup, long straight silver-white hair) assuring the reporter that the kids were using their own minds ...

... and there was a story last night about HS students at a private school having all sorts of workshops about the evils that were befalling them ( due to Trump winning ...

Hillary's too old and Chelsea is an empty suit, so the Clintons probably won't be able to ever achieve much more than winning a state office, or perhaps a safe senate seat, based on residual reputation.

The Bushes were pretty much dead after W, but they don't seem to realize it. While JEB will probably run a few more times, and you can expect George P Bush to try for higher offices, I wouldn't expect them to amount to much. The name has a lot of baggage, and people won't forget it soon.

As for the Obamas, Michelle has zero qualification, and the daughters are too young to really speculate about. I wouldn't estimate them as having serious dynasty potential.

627 Has there ever been a study on what exactly is the cost necessary to deliver a quality education? Is there a direct relationship between how much resources you throw at the problem and the quality of the education?

I'm saying this because I wonder if 18th century Puritan kids educated without any fancy AV equipment and computers, with just books and chalkboards, might be smarter and better able to cope in this modern world (if they could be instantaneously transported here) than most inner city kids with the benefit of videos, internet, and the ideology of educators like Bill Ayers shaping their intellectual development.

Mrs Hades is the computer teacher for an elementary school that is on the edge of failing. The reason it is failing is because the previous principal would allow anyone in, even if they were troublemakers at their previous schools. Their parents don't give a damn (in fact they have had parents say "so what do you want ME to do about it???" when they call and tell them little Johnny is being an ass), and all the teachers, no matter how hard they try at their jobs, get a "proficient" rating on their yearly evaluations.
Why bother to try for anything better if all you are going to get is "Proficient"? Especially for a job that pays less than 50K a year (here in NC the big "break our arms patting ourselves on the back" issue was teacher pay averaging 50K; average pay for teachers (remember that principals and administrators with teaching certificates qualify as "teachers, even though they are making six figures and never go into a classroom) may be at 50K but the average teacher doesn't make anything near that).

Wrap that all up with sub-standard teachers getting protected by the unions (yes, teachers are well aware that it happens) and administrators who just want to blame the classroom teachers instead of looking into the lack of support by administration and just general assholiness of parents (if little Johnny can't read it MUST be the teacher's fault, no matter that the parents don't make him do his homework and generally consider schools to be free babysitting services), it's no wonder we can't attract quality candidates to be teachers.

I'll tell ya, I've dealt with some shitty teachers, but seeing how the sausage is made really opened my eyes. I don't know how to fix it, but I do believe it really has to start in the home, by parents who give a shit, who will hold administrators accountable, and will get involved in making their kids do their homework and correcting behavioral issues.

It goes back to Bastiat, and production or plunder. Those are the only two means by which a man may make his living, and the Lefties are people who think production is beneath them. Those who would seek to make plunder the law of the land will always come up with new schemes to try to make everyone else support them.

So yes, you're absolutely right. No matter how many times you defeat it, it'll be back, as long as there are people who dream of being able to order around legions of fawning sycophants to carry out their every whim, and as long as there are lazy grifters who will enable them in order to have a life of leisure at someone else's expense.

It makes all the kids lose the ability to reason, rationally, how to get from a to b, because it does half the steps for them and only holds their attention for a couple of seconds.

It's rather like kids who learned from Sesame Street. If it isn't cute, short and funny, they don't care to notice. This is NOT the way to teach anyone, let alone children.

Training one to think is a bit different than training one to regurgitate, and I do not believe "modern" education teaching anyone to actually think. They have replaced history with "social studies" and literature with "current books." There is no basis upon which to build.

Education, and the Department Thereof, need a serious time out.

As a mom in the belly of the beast, I can tell you what works and what doesn't. My son failed, completely, in fourth grade. He was at an "ABC" school, which supposedly taught the basics. They taught a bunch of common core crap, is all, and their method of dealing with misbehavior was to yell at the kids, and when that failed, by calling the cops. My son had the cops called on him when he touched a girl's butt on the playground. The cops.

None of my interventions or pleas were even heard. The principal was at the school about two days a week and couldn't have given a rat's ass. The teacher was all about getting his masters degree and getting out. The kids were hellions and did pretty much as they pleased.

I screamed bloody murder over the summer to the school district, and now my son is getting A's at a marvelous little neighborhood school with a thriving PTA, teachers who care about my kid as a person, and parents who do things like run a frisbee club, a Spanish club, and a chess club. Same school district, same public school education, but a totally different environment and people who care.

If the old school were to fall into a crevasse and be swallowed whole, I doubt anyone would even care.

Think about this (very possible future): A guy says to his computer, "Hey, I have an idea for a spy novel about a guy who works for the government and uncovers a plot to control the world. It'd be cool if it was written in the style of Robert Ludlum."

The computer then creates an entire 400-page novel from that casually-tossed-off notion of his.

His friend then says, "How was your morning," to which he replies, "I wrote a novel! I'm awesome!"

647 So, what I did on my days off...I tore a hole in my kitchen ceiling to see what it would take to fix the water damage. I actually got off light for now, but Mrs Hades wants to totally revamp the kitchen including lighting so that won't last very long. Maybe she will let me just fix the hole for now and do the renovations later...but she is hopelessly addicted to those fixer-upper shows so my fate is pretty much sealed.



Second thing I did was determine my Subaru does not, in fact, have blown head gaskets again. This makes me happy. Eldest Son and I spent the afternoon trying to burp all the air out of the cooling system, we will see if we were successful tomorrow. Hopefully this will cure the overheating problems that have suddenly popped up on it.


I also changed out the 3 pole electric motor in one of my model locomotives for a 5 pole, which meant new brushes. Problem is, one of the new brushes were defective out of the package. I am now waiting to see if I will ever do business again with AJCkids.


And last but not least, you may see plastic boxes in the scrapbooking section in your local Michaels or AC Moores or wherever you go for such things; they are about 15" square and 3" deep, have a handle and two latches. They are handy for storing any number of things, I use them for model railroad stuff. I built a rack so I can put a dozen of them in a drawer-like configuration, it worked so well that I built another one for my mother in law for Christmas for her craft stuff.


Soon I hope to start building T-TRAK modules with some Nn3 on them. As far as I know this has never been done, so it should be fun.


Tomorrow I go back to work. I need the rest.

Yes you should, if you have the time for it.

671 Skip, I have seen a couple of snippets of an interview he did with cnn. He looks horrible and his mental state looks questionable at best.

He sounded like he was begging for a job. All I can say is good luck. You had a good run on the conservative side but if he survives in the media at all he will the next huffington.

It took me more than almost an hour to explore everything.

I have never found Tom Selleck particularly attractive. I mean, I get it, but he's not my cuppa.

683 Once again, Hillary did not win the popular vote, just the largest share of all the candidates. If the left had their way and we went to a direct vote, there would have to be a run-off of the top two candidates. This two round system is widely used around the world in direct elections. As usual, leftist are ignorant of this and just spew whatever nonsense comes to mind.

691 Ripley - Exactly right. How many people living in deep blue or deep red states voted for third-party candidates because they knew their vote wouldn't matter? To assume that the popular vote would be exactly the same if the election had been a direct popular vote is stupid.

Posted by: biancaneve at November 16, 2016 06:05 AM (IKOfL)

692 Seconding "bestie21," what commentator on the election has navigated its shoals better than our own Ace. Who has so well enumerated Trump's flaws, then gone on to wisely endorse him in a binary contest with something so much worse in prospect, then perfectly expressed the joy and schadenfreude of our side in this unexpected victory. Ace is unique and special and a frisking genius in his own way.

And when I sober up, I will deny having said any of this.

701 Another benefit about traveling to Asia: people ask you how you voted, and are open to either possibility. Then you can debate about it, without anyone turning into a rage monster. It's very refreshing. I remember when political debate was like this in America, and I miss that.

704 The local paper had a guest columnist for yesterday's edition. Apparently Trump promised to outlaw abortion by over turning Roe vs. Wade and prevent women from getting birth control.

Oh and he is going to take all of the money the Fed now sends to schools and give it to only to the parents of Christian children so they can send their kids to religious schools for free.

Well to look at it a different way Splunge, try asking a Chinese mainlander about Taiwan and see if you get the same reasoned debate. Or asking a Vietnamese about China's ambitions in the South China Sea.

You might find they have rather strong opinions on those topics.

710 "I love LED's. Replaced every single bulb/fixture in my house with them and haven't had a single failure in almost 4 years."

Replaced every bulb in the house with CREE brand LEDs about three years ago.

Had one 60 watt, and three of the three-way bulbs go.

Called CREE directly.
Within two days, UPS was dropping off free replacements.

And all of mine are 1st generation.
I believe that CREE is now in Gen III, if not Gen IV, so the infant mortality rate should be lower yet.

I love CREE.

711 GnuBreed, yes, of course (sorry, can't quote, I don't know how to do that on this iPad as of a couple of IoS revisions ago), but that's partly my point -- I'm not saying people are inherently better here. I'm just saying it's refreshing to get to a place where I can rationally debate with people, issues that have turned so many of the less-mature of our people into animals. I completely grant your point that there are probably issues here that would do the same to the people I'm talking to; I had one such conversation already, on the theme of "WHY WOULD YOU EVER TRUST THE JAPANESE?!?!!"

Still like being able to discuss my own country's issues rationally with people here...and wish I could do it at home.
