Saturday Morning Weird News Dump

benefits-of-coffee-meme.jpg

Good morning Morons, it's Saturday. What do you have planned? Some NFL football? NCAAA college hoops? Dusting for your better half or pretending that you are the laundry fairy. Your secret here is safe, sort of, for a small minimal price.


Anyway here are a few topics that didn't their fair due on the AoSHQ this past week. As always, enjoy the open thread.


Did you find something that you wanted to comment about? Did you bring your own topic to the thread? That's cool. Open thread with just a couple of simple reminders. No sharp objects and play nice with one another.

Next Saturday's Weird News Dump will be under a different presidential administration. The Weird News Dump staff is OK with that.

10 Thanks to all the coblogs here at the HQ, for the morning threads! It's all good: Progressives are about to be forcibly ejected from government, hopefully never to return. Next targets: academia and the media. Oh wait, I think the Style Guide says that's supposed to be "fucking media". Sorry.

3 The DNC is still trying to lay off the Democrat disaster on Comey. They still refuse to recognize that their Party and Scankles had dug themselves into a hole since Obama was elected.

There is some cognitive dissonance going on here. If Obama was really their Reagan, as they believe, then they should have had their Bush-Dukakis smack down at the end for his handpicked successor. Reagan literally could have pointed to a ham sandwich and said "This sandwich is a fine sandwich, and of all the current candidates, will best carry on my legacy of limited government."

The sandwich would have won 40 states- including California.

There is a difference between real, feel it in your bones popularity and polls. Reagan made people change how they thought of themselves and their country in a good way- and never took credit for it himself. "You did this" he said in speech after speech. He believed in the fundamental decency of the American people.

Obama is continuously telling people who they are and what they feel, but it is always in a cajoling way. "This is not who we are." "This group of people feels this." Anything good was quickly co opted as one of his shining achievements, with no pointing out the brave men and women who might have done the heavy lifting. Not that there was that much to brag about.

He is a failure as a leader and an inspiration. Real leaders inspire people to feel something positive in themselves. Obama's only claim to fame here is that if you voted for him, you did not feel racist. Belief in a negative is not enough.

It would be pretty hard for him to sell the house unless he had full ownership prior to your dad's death.

Even with a crystal clear, undisputed will, it would take about 6 months to get free title to something in an estate.

Yes, but I also believe there are those who love Obama that are just plain textbook case ignorant. There are some dumb, dumb people out there who understand nothing, yet still love their country. They just have no clue as to what people like today's leftists want to do to it. In any case, this long goodbye adoration and crying displays are just absolutely creepy. Embarrassing nitwits (but enough about the MFM).

Executors pull this nonsense all the time. A bank officer literally grabbed the keys out of my elderly cousin's hand two days after her mother died. We ended up hiring a criminal lawyer, which intimidated the bank enough to stop their own intimidation. Relatively inexpensive, and kept things civil so that she could move (which she wanted to do in the first place) and remake her life. My recommendation of the criminal lawyer was to get someone from outside the clubby little estate/banking game.

I still wonder what happens if they try to run Cory Booker and Kamala Harris at the same time. Who do people gravitate towards?

It is still early days yet, and I think that we are perhaps a bit premature in who the dem nominee will be. Who saw Trump in 2012 amidst the ashes of the Romney loss? Many would have said, and did say Cruz, Rubio, Jeb, or Walker. Circumstances make fools of us all.

One thing about Hillary! is that it raised the question in my mind whether the gender grouping is a powerful enough force to get people motivated. Did Hillary really pull an outsized portion of the female vote, or did she just get the standard dem voting bloc?

Brother's wife's family is going through the same sort of crap. The executor is playing fast and loose with the aunt's property because the will was poorly written and the executor, not a family member, is not living up to his fiduciary responsibilities. The heirs have been told it is very difficult to break a "valid" will in Virgina, but they have decided to legally pursue the executor for malfeasance even if they lose money in the legal fees required to do so.

IANAL, but it behooves members of the Horde to think about the succession of their property and tangible goods and get it written down.

That's a nope.

Y'all is simply an inclusive pronoun involving everyone in the room or under discussion.

"All y'all" emphasizes that point as in "Fuck all y'all."


The Canadian "Eh" is more or less exactly like the Japanese "ne",

which is more or less asking for agreement on a point.

"Deep snow today, eh?"

"Green Bay sucks donkey dicks, ne?"

The "but" ending of your sentence is why I ask...
Posted by: 6 days 3 hrs to noon Jan 20th! at January 14, 2017 09:20 AM (3hIZX)

No, from Indiana. I was going to put ",but..." as though trailing off. However, I try to not overuse the ellipsis. As with saying the same word over and over again (like 'like'), it speaks to getting into rutts in your thinking. I once got into a rutt of saying 'basically' all the time until friends pointed it out.

People in Maine end sentences with 'but' a lot?

186 Brother Cavil,

Was there a will? In that case, it makes no difference what your brother did.

If there's no will, then it's lawyer time and both lawyers and the state will gobble up a big share.

Perhaps that can be used as a lever. Give your brother a choice to fight in court and lose what was paid or give you say 70% since you were there taking care of your father and he can walk away with a clear 30%.

If you don't want to fight...then don't.

Though my folks left a will, there was still plenty to fight over.

The lovely and intelligent Mrs naturalfake suggested we simply not engage in that nonsense to keep good relationships with my sibs.

And, of course, she was right.

It's a different matter if you need the money however.

If so, have a lawyer draw up a letter to your brother outlining your demands and stopping the sale.

Then it will simply depend on how long the nonsense goes on as to whether you both get some significant money or give it all to the lawyers and the state.

Sorry, you have to go through this.

There has been, as far as I know anyhow, zero mention of any encryption on these emails. Surely The Secretary Of State of The United States wouldn't be sending official business emails without encryption - right? Only a moron would do that.
A well-encrypted email would require a real professional, say government funded?, hacker to de-encrypt them.

266 There are two offers on the table for a third of the appraised value.
=========================


What?? That can't be right. I don't see how an executor could get away with selling the house for a third of its value. Your dad's been gone - what? - three weeks? Why the rush to sell so low?


A death in the family a couple of years ago resulted in having to sell the house. The house appraised at $150,000. It sold after a few months at $157,000. We still had people bitching and moaning that they were "cheated out of their inheritance! The sale price was too low!"

272 (AP) - Speeches by far-right commentator Milo Yiannopoulos and former pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli were canceled Friday night after heated protests erupted at the University of California, Davis.

UC Davis Interim Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter, who had staunchly defended allowing the event, said he was "deeply disappointed" by the protests and cancellation.

"Our community is founded on principles of respect for all views, even those that we personally find repellent," Hexter said after the cancellation.

281 At the printing shop where I work, one of our customers is a pet cemetery. They order two types of tags, "Private" and "Simple".

It was explained to me that a "Simple" cremation is done with several animals, and the ashes are comingled and partitioned out to the pets' owners. A "Private" cremation involves just one particular pet. Obviously, a "Private" cremation is more expensive.

The room always gets a little dusty when I receive an order for those tags.

314 A school nurse, who works in the anchor baby education/day care center my kids recently escaped, has been suspended and probably will be fired for saying in a Facebook post that illegal aliens from Mexico should go back to Mexico. (Two other teachers in the same district were recently let go for making similar comments in favor of Trumps immigration stance)The outrage, hysteria and fainting by the compassionate, diversity loving crowd, none of who have kid in this third world "school" is a wonder to behold. They will gladly destroy this country and my kids future so they can portray themselves as compassionate and tolerant..


Bigger point is not one of these comments were said in threatening way to kids, just stated as a matter of opinion. Not that this is a surprise but we have arrived at a point where it is dangerous for citizens to speak their opinion openly, even if just for enforcing the law. Meanwhile illegal aliens can run roughshod over the taxpayers and openly demand more benefits and school resources at our expense but they face no danger whatsoever of any sanction or deportation for their fraudulent acts. Living in the shadows? BS

This is how you got Trump and in my opinin no action he takes against illegals can be severe enough. Sick of this shit and just hope it is not too late.

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

Wait a gosh darn minute. You say the last appraisal was a couple of years ago? In Illinois, a real estate appraisal must be done after death, and within 30 days. One of the first things we had to do was get an appraiser out to the house. It has to be valued as to what it is worth at the time of death. The executor is responsible for that. Unless your state laws are significantly different - a new appraisal must be done. A couple of years ago is not valid.

I don't disagree that twitter is a silly platform and print is much more informative, but print media is not just dying because it skews left, it is also because of people's changing news consumption. How many libs in New York actually read the NYT? They may still have it delivered to look good, but I am betting they get their news online (if they get it at all.)

Getting a conservative news/media channel would also be more productive than a print media venue, I would think.

There is a growing trend of twitter responses being the ONLY place where discourse happens.

That's bad for humanity. No, I'm not exaggerating. It's a terrible way for humans to communicate. Those things they call twitter swarms are aptly described, because humans are by nature, violent and irrational. Giving more of them an avenue to congregate is not going to end well.

We're going to have real blood. I mean, more of it than we're already seeing. This is going to get ugly, and twitter is a major element behind it.

If... and frankly I think it might not be possible, but IF there is a way to head it off, it's with mature, intelligent communication.

That horrible outlet just feeds the frenzy.

Honestly, what I'm hoping... as futile as it may be, is that the Trump derangement becomes so great, they beclown themselves to the point where "reasonable" (reasonabler?) left leaners decide they need to separate themselves from the riff raff.

There could be a realignment toward a centrist approach to governance that would not be unwelcomed at this point. I might still be fringy on my side of things, but would grumble and more or less accept something like peaceful disagreements.

405 In the waning days of Pres. Barack Obama's administration, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) released a "National Near-Earth Object Preparedness Strategy" last week. The strategy outlines major goals the country will have to tackle to prepare to meet the NEO threat, signaling that some leaders are taking the danger more seriously. Whether the U.S. government is willing to put significant funding behind such efforts, however, still remains to be seen. "This has been something that for years was more or less a laughing matter," says William Ailor, an Aerospace Fellow of The Aerospace Corp. The White House report shows that there is high-level interest in the NEO threat, and that even if incoming NEOs are not among the most likely threats we face, the consequences of an impact could be dire. "It's a good thing to keep your eye on," Ailor says, and the new report "brings reality home."

415 Cavil, if you were left the house in the will and the will is valid, your brother CANNOT sell it. And if you do have to sell due to finances your brother does not get any money. Like others have said, you need to talk to a lawyer asap. In the meantime, do NOT sign anything. I feel your pain, I'm going through the same thing. Took care of my mom with cancer, sister was hard pressed to visit even though she lived 45 minutes away and pocketed large amounts of money that have no loan paperwork.. She 's now trying to force a sale of the house after refusing for a year to negotiate a buyout of her share. I totally understand where Mis hum is coming from with his brother. This scrunt is dead to me no matter what happens now. People are greedy fucks.

426 Media reporter Jack Shafer asserts that the sheer volume of anti-Clinton reporting from tabloids, Fox News and Breitbart was just too much for Democrats to fight effectively during the course of the campaign.

Shafer acknowledges that no one really reads tabloids like The National Enquirer and The Globe, citing the fact that Enquirer only has a weekly circulation of 342,071 issues, down significantly from the publication's height of 5.9 million issues during the 1970s.

"But that misses the importance of the constant cultural background noise it adds to American life," Shafer argues. "There are 37,000 supermarkets in America, with an average of about 10 checkout stands each, and many stands feature a wire rack displaying the Enquirer, the Globe, often the company's other tab, the National Examiner, and celebrity magazines."


Who knew that Fox News, Breitbart, The National Enquirer and The Globe were so powerful ? ... even more powerful than ABC, CBS, NBC, msNBC, CNN, HLN, New York Times, Washington Post, LA Times, SF Chronicle, etc. etc. etc. yada yada yada ?

Aaaaand this is EXACTLY the MSM strategy used against the GOP for years.
Heck, John Nolte identified and wrote a column on the Tabloidzation" of Palin in 2008, and provided a detailed list of the ways the MSM daily painted Palin and her family as a rednecky mess --- all while giving Obama and family reverent, respectful coverage --- with the strategy of having people not remember one single thing that made them think poorly of Palin, but just the general sense that she and her family are a circus freakshow, not our kind, would just be too much to invite that crazy into the WH.

That's the point of merging the media with the entertainment industry during campaign season - you get this blurring of coverage between the so-called serious news media + SNL/Daily Show/late night shows + Vanity Fair/People/EW/Nat'l Enquirer, etc. where one feeds off the other, creating a 24x7/no escape overall message.
