Antoine Lavoisier and His Wife
Jacques Louis David

The lovely French Revolution had many victims, and Lavoisier was one of them. They chopped off his head for some trumped up crimes, but his real crime was being part of the Ancien Régime.

He was also one of the greatest chemists in history, and helped drag science into the modern era.

Oh...yeah...the art! it appealed to me because it wasn't one of Louis David's grand compositions. Less politics...more technique.

Yes, it's debatable how much juice they have left since zombie ben franklin took the pipe in November, but I still think they have a fair bit of it.

Oxygen was first discovered by Swedish pharmacist Carl Wilhelm Scheele. He had produced oxygen gas by heating mercuric oxide and various nitrates in 1771-2. Scheele called the gas "fire air" because it was the only known supporter of combustion, and wrote an account of this discovery in a manuscript he titled Treatise on Air and Fire, which he sent to his publisher in 1775. That document was published in 1777.

Pay off the mortgage, get out of debt.

Take those monthly payments from now on to build some serious savings, pay them to yourself instead of the bank.

Stocks go down also, and even if that one makes more money, is it going to pay more than what you would pay in interest over the same period, and will you sleep well at night waiting for the DJI to tell you you are now poor and can't afford to pay off the house at a whim?

Obama (at 19) wrote a poem about "Pop" (commie Frank M Davis) and the shared stains on their shorts. (or pop wrote it for him maybe). Add in pedophile island and Podesta child abuse artwork and we have many indications of an epidemic.

It parallels the left's political philosophy of total control over the citizenry, and especially their desire to "groom" all the children to be submissive to their PC religion, including a lot of dirty little secrets.

2) Impeachment kind of sucks as a measure to keep government officials in check. It's sucked since the founding. It's only actually worked once at the presidential level and probably shouldn't have at the time (the little I've read of Johnson indicates that he got railroaded), and it's done nothing to reign in unconstitutional power grabs.

If impeachment was a good tool, FDR would have been impeached.

That reminds me of the probably apocryphal story of a fellow who bought a barometer one day in 1933 and, when he got it home, it was as low as could be and no amount of shaking would move the needle. The barometer insisted a hurricane was on the way.

So the fellow took the barometer back to the shop and asked for a refund.

When he got home, the hurricane had blown his house away.

Market is bubble as I see it, even though Trump is doing pro-market stuff. But I never thought they could go zero interest and QE for so long, and have been wrong for 8 years plus on that.

You could sell half, or keep raising your mental sell signal (draw a trend line, when it breaks below, stick to plan and sell). With inflated currency, house debt not so bad, unless you are overextended in an inflated RE market. But the peace of no debt has value as well.

206 David is one of my favorite artists from that period. He reminds me of the earlier Venetian school because it is full of color and life, realistic, rich detail, sometimes a little over the top but captivating for the viewer. Even in his straight portraits there is a feel of immediacy, of the moment (just the right moment) in the poses; less staged and more casual and revealing. I like the glance Lavoisier gives his wife in the painting above. It is very appealing.

According to Wiki, he was a bit of a curmudgeon but not without humor. His painting of Eros and Psyche has a smirking Eros rising from the bed while Psyche is asleep and looking VERY satisfied.

Thanks, CBD, as always for these wonderful and intriguing art threads.

241 I don't think we'll see a president go through impeachment for at least a couple of generations for 2 reasons:

Here's why I think you will ...

1 - We haven't seen a President with less support from his own party.

2 - We haven't seen a Federal Govt more emboldened.

There are significant portions of the GOP that want Trump gone. They'll give up the White House if necessary. They'll give up House and Senate majorities if necessary.

Trump will face a primary challenge in 2020 ... and I'm sure there are plenty of GOP players that would like to move on him sooner than that ... with evidence cheerfully supplied by threatened Federal Agencies ... all covered by a deeply concerned media.

Paul Ryan's primary concern is the health of the Republican Party (it really should be the health of the country, but there you have it).

He's not going to suddenly blow it up unless Trump does something so bad that the caucus is screaming for it.

I don't know what that "so bad" would be, but I think it would need to be on par with shooting someone on 5th avenue, and even then it might not be enough.

It's not a judgment, on my part, just a read of the reality of party politics in the 21st century.

282 Here is why you will not see a Trump impeachment any time in the foreseeeable future.

Mutually Assured Destruction.

Trump knows that he has to act within certain bounds to keep the GOP Congress on-side, and so far he is definitely doing so.

The GOP Congress recognizes, I think, that as long as he stays within those bounds any attempt to act against him will result in their being murdered on the steps of their office. Maybe literally so.

Any move to act against Trump absent clear evidence of a serious crime on his part destroys the GOP and maybe kills people. Period.

I'm going to be quite direct here.

You need to go for some medication for depression and therapy. If you cannot afford t, you know how to contact me and with your permission will set up a go fund me thing or something. I realize this being without a job is very depressing and disheartening, but every day you're one here you post more dire sounding messages. NOBODY here wants to go what we went through with the fellow (Jofftey) who took his own life, and neither do the four children/teens who are closest to you.

Also, did you apply for Unemployment and/or look for something in a temp agency?

If there were 30 who would flip, Democrats would have pushed for the impeachment already, just to assuage their base.

I know there's a general negative feeling in regards to the GOP around here, but insisting the they're so dumb that they're willing to literally turn force the party from ascendancy to backwoods wilderness party just because they don't like Trump seems to be taking it too far.

Making the best of Trump is their key to power. He'll be gone in 4-8 years, but these Congress critters will be around forever.

Repeal and replace is a more sound strategy. Health care provision is an issue both Democrats and Republicans wanted to solve before Democrats stramtolled everyone with their big government plan. Now Obama has coerced millions into its grasp. You need to be skillful about how that's is done lest you own the resulting disaster. None of the previous bills were written with the idea Republicans would author the replacement.

Should they get off their asses and get it done? Yeah but it needs to be done thoughtfully and with planning.

Not even 10pct of them have ever seen any kind of poverty. The few kids they have ever even met who had school lunches by necessity is vanishingly small. The current idiots have done the carefully scripted 'service' tours overseas (with daddy's credit card in reserve) to enhance resumes. One thing to note about previous utopians is that poverty was a daily grind for all, even the privileged.

Posted by: Cato the Rebel Without a Party at February 24, 2017 11:14 AM (X52ZZ)

You have entire hospital systems that have been reconfigured to the Obamacare model of insurance reimbursement. Since Obamacare was passed and then renamed by the Supreme Court, many regional hospital systems closed and were bought or absorbed into large hospital systems. Rural hospital and physicians have been decimated and forced to join these megasystems to survive. Almost all the insurance companies that were involved in the exchanges have left the system, leaving only one company in each region that has total control of the market. 21 States expanded their Medicaid pool based off of money via the Obamacare bill promised to them by the Feds. The entire insurance industry has been calibrated to charge premiums, deductibles, etc. based off of mandates of coverage, including coverage for preexisting conditions. Hospitals are charging five times what they used to charge so they can cover those who still have no insurance, and who are subsidized, but whose insurance still doesn't cover fully.

Kim Jong-nam was killed using the highly toxic liquid nerve agent VX, Malaysian police have said.

One of the two women suspected of involvement in the poisoning vomited in police custody and was also suffering the effects of VX, which is only used in chemical warfare, the inspector general, Khalid Abu Bakar, said.

The findings follow a preliminary analysis of swabs taken from the face and eyes of the half-brother of the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un. More items linked to the attack at Kuala Lumpur airport were still being analysed, police said.

Doctor: Are you still smoking?
Me: Ayup

Me: Ayup

Doctor checks off box on Ipad and moves on. My wife was declared borderline diabetic. They put her on medication and she had to go back a number of times to modulate dosage. Four or five times in 2 or 3 months and each time smoking cessation counselling. I called to complain and the nurse said, don't worry about it, you don't pay for that.

Note there was no defense of the charge. Insurance company said doctor fee $25, negotiated fee $12.50, insurance pays 100%

This year another change, doctor has his ipad, but now a girl rolls in a table and she has a laptop. Doctor says that is necessary to help him fill in required forms.

574 Lavoisier was one of the great geniuses of the past thousand years, but he was killed for applying that genius to collecting taces, particularly the gabelle or salt tax. This tax was so extortionate that in some places it was 1971% (one thousand nine hundred and seventy one percent) people were fined for not consuming enough salt and the firm employed its own army which had the right, and regularly exercised it, to search and even sieze the movable sort all non noble property in the country.

Lavoisier work made this system even more efficient and extractive than it had been previously. One of the problems with the label conservative is that I think a lot more of us here would be with the revolution, even with the sans culottes, than against it. We believe in the equality of mankind, the abolition of special privileges, love of country over class, the right to hunt, etc...

Read the declaration of the rights of man:

Article 3 is the only one I think would be a deal breaker and
I think the US right is far closer to this than the left, after all it privileges the nation over other nations.

It is the Democrats who are the party that has turned Alexander Hamilton promoter of the sedition act and the unchallenged villain of Shays rebellion into a sort of God.
