Napoleon at the Saint-Bernard Pass
Jacques-Louis David

The Media's protestations of censorship and claims of the imminent destruction of the 1st Amendment and a chilling of their "right" to attack their political opponents without fear of response is amusing in the extreme. And the suggestion that America is descending into some sort of totalitarian condition is even funnier.

The vitriol and disinformation spewed by the media is a testament to their ignorance of the meaning of the 1st Amendment. The sheer volume of attacks on the president and his administration is breathtaking. Far from being chilled, the media is in full-throated hysterical screaming mode, which each headline more outrageous than the previous.

What is most compelling about the paradigm shift that President Trump has created is the destruction of the idea that the press has any rights other than freedom from interference from government.

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Notice there is nothing that gives reporters special access to government or information or even a seat in the briefing room. And that is part of their upset; they simply cannot abide being ignored or displaced by a direct line to the people.

14 I wish the left took as much of an expansive reading with the second amendment as they do with the first.

Clearly "congress shall make no law... abridging ... the press" means "CNN has a Constitutional right to harangue whoever they want anywhere they want at any time."

I'll give 'em that -- if they accept that "...the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed" means I can mount a 50 cal on the roof of my civic.

They have to say crap like that because, while the Navy SEAL Widow got most of the attention, you recall the grieving black father whose son was murdered by an illegal? I'll bet every Dem and amnesty loving GOPe in the place peed themselves when that man stood up, because it was a reminder that blacks are also killed by illegals. The last thing the Dems want is the blacks to put 2 and 2 together.

The roads and bridges will never, ever be fixed because then how will state and local governments justify their constant tax increases?

That's how it works "We need more money from you because LOOK AT THE POTHOLES!!!"

"Yeah, but you take in millions and millions a year. Couldn't you, like, allocate $100,000 of that to repave every road in town?"

"...errr..."

It cost about $129 B (in 1991 dollars, approx $225B in todays dollars) to build the ENTIRE interstate highway system. (according to the gov't)

Why the fuck does it take $1 T (plus the $1 T Obama said he spent, so close to $2 T total) to repave some roads and upgrade some bridges?

Well, that's the rub of it, isn't it? The actual work itself is not very expensive -- but the graft, corruption and compliance costs are astronomical.

My local town can fix the sub surface and grade, then repave a 10 mile stretch of 2 lane in each direction road for under $100,000, and that's including, I'm sure, a fair amount of graft and corruption.

Yet somehow that would cost the federal government millions.

(yes, I know interstate highways use more asphalt and go for more thickness then a "country highway" would, but asphalt is really not very expensive.)

... and I can get a 1/4 mile driveway re surfaced for $5,000.

91 Like the recent David you used, this is simply a magnificent painting. The dynamic pose, the colors, the detail that keeps the viewer's eyes riveted after the first impression, they are all so effective. I'm not especially a fan of Napoleon but even I am moved by this image. The effect on his supporters must have been huge. David was smart enough to make the background sufficiently indistinct so that the figure of rider and horse almost pop out of the frame.

BTW, look at the photo JJ used in the previous thread. I can easily imagine it as the model for a Norman Rockwell painting.

Yes, that is good!

About dang time someone started doing this. It's always "We need X to do this thing, and Y to do that, and Z for this bleeding heart issue, and..." without ever having to do what the rest of us do: compare the various expenses and decide which ones are more worthy/affordable vs. the ones that are 'nice to haves'/out of budget after we take care of bills/expenses that *must* be paid.

124 Napolean wasn't actually French. He was from Corsica, which I guess belonged to France at the time, so *whatever*, man.

He also wasn't as short as people think, either-- people were generally less tall as now (due to, like, nutrition and stuff?), but mostly because units of measurement weren't quite as standardized as they are now, so five French feet (for example) wasn't the same length as five English feet.

He allegedly got by on like three or four hours of sleep a night.

He's one of the few great historical figures to have a really stupid nickname-- "The Little Corporal," even.

Their power was that they were the gate you had to pass through to access "the people." That gate eroded to a pile of rust with the rise of personal electronic communications.

For me, it can't be just skill, then I'd never be able to pick a favorite, especially when you look at the Dutch or French Baroque. It has to be deeper for me. Michelangelo blows Leonardo and Raphael out of the water. L. is an intellectual show-off, and R. is too cute. M.'s "Pieta" is one of the great work of art in the world. It deserves the recognition the Mona Lisa gets--in my opinion.

With David, it's meaning. His work drips with passion. He's a fabulous propagandist. His "Marat" is genius in its simplicity, and Napoleon was a genius for picking David as his court painter.

I also find symbolism, its use and development, fascinating.

My new favorite stick with which to poke journalists is since when is journalism sitting there waiting for the official word to be given out on a matter rather than going out and digging up independently what the government is really doing?

Even leaks are nothing more than some official's line on what happened.

Posted by: Anon a mouse... at March 01, 2017 09:52 AM (MINbv)

Well, not only that -- I want a full audit and accounting of how much is received AND HOW MUCH IS SPENT. And a full break down.

Why does it cost millions and millions of dollars to replace a small overpass? Why? It cost way less than that to build it, and the old one lasted 50+ years. So why does it now cost 10x as much to replace as it did to build? (in inflation adjusted numbers).

Surely it's cheaper to replace an existing structure then it was to eminent domain the land, excavate and grade it, then build a bridge from scratch, right?

Someone explain that to me.

258 The market in 2008 tanked partly in anticipation of BigGov regs coming in the next administration, whether it would be Obama or Clinton. The housing bubble was partly an easy money problem, and partly a Democrat-driven "chicken in every pot" agenda being expanded to subprime teaser rate loan homes for everyone, even illegals.

So the Obama "recovery" looked more spectacular than it was since it was from the severe low (counted starting in January 2009 instead of when the market started pricing in Obama much earlier). The market bounce/boom was funded by $4T in QE magic money, and unprecedented zero interest rate policy for 8 years. And the worst of Obamacare was delayed for six years, now dumped on Trump, as is the Iran problem.

The Trump deregulation plan, America First plan are awesome. But markets are floating in some pretty thin air. Obama stole a lot of wealth effect, but maybe we can just keep inflating the currency and markets stay levitated. Fed Reserve chair Yellin kept rates low for Obama and Hillary, but now will try to raise. The market should be in an exhaustion phase, regardless of what great things Trump does ... but we shall see. The old metrics may be broken.

After the defeat at Waterloo, as his tattered army was retreating, many of the camp followers (mostly women) were near starvation due to devastation of the surrounding countryside.

300 Having had a light breakfast and with hypertension meds at the ready I actually took a look at the NY Slimes website for its headline on the speech. Of course it was all backhanded and weird, made-up non-news like "Trump Defends Tumult of Administration"

But interestingly, for every five Mary Cloggensteins (or Klein-Cuthbert) comment, there was a comment from someone to the effect that they previously thought Trump was a disaster, but were not willing to give him a chance.

So I think that Team Trump may actually be able to peel off another 10-20% of the current Dem coalition. Of course what will be left after the peel-off will resemble the face of the Red Skull. But that's their problem.

Compared to other big chains, Domino's is actually not bad. They did a big reevaluation a couple years ago, and it's improved quite a bit.

Pizza Hut, on the other hand, still seems to use about three pounds of butter per greasy nauseating slice.

It's one hour long. Whoever hasn't watched it in its entirety, do take the time to sit and savor the whole thing. You've never seen anything like this. It is historic; uplifting; 100% patriotic and it exposes the left for the anti-American freaks they are. President Trump signing-off with "God Bless America," at the end of the speech was the coup de grace in the side of the democratic party.

#2) If we limit both illegal and legal immigration, for 10-120 years, to be able to assimilate new citizens into a recognizably American culture.

Yeah, I spent years driving at 79 mph (they'll only snag you if you're going 80+) in my civic commuting too and from work and averaged 35 or so mpg...

For reference, I have to watch my speed where I live now and average 37 or 38 mpg doing 60.

So I mean... not a big difference. Plus I suck at math, and keeping track of when and how much gas I put in, so it's possible there really isn't a difference. I haven't noticed one. I drive about the same number of miles and fill up about the same amount. It just takes longer to get where I'm going when I'm doing 60 compared to 79.

It's a great story, has a lot to it. Also, greatest Toyota ad ever made.
I'm not a Toyota fan, but, credit where due. The Volvo one was faked.

On mileage, there used to be a car company called Oldsmobile, and they made a car called Aurora. The Aurora had some nice points. Fairly quick, handled well for a sedan. And, good mileage, with a V8. Smallish V8.

It gets better mileage at 82 than it does at 65.

Trump pulled a Khan maneuver. You remember when Clinton invited the Khan family to talk about their fallen hero son while criticizing Trump. Trump fell for that trap by responding to it, which allowed his critics to frame him as disrespectful to a Gold Star family.

Last night, President Trump returned the favor. He wrapped part of his message around honoring a fallen hero. You can't criticize any part of that without seeming disrespectful. And persuasion-wise, saying Ryan Owen's memory is "etched into eternity" is one of the great presidential lines of all time. Simple and perfect. And thanks to President Trump's speech, Ryan Owen's name is in fact etched into eternity. The President predicted it, then he literally made it happen, right in front of us, without taking the focus off of Ryan. That's as good as it gets.Trump pulled a Khan maneuver. You remember when Clinton invited the Khan family to talk about their fallen hero son while criticizing Trump.

M.'s "Pieta" is one of the great work of art in the world. It deserves the recognition the Mona Lisa gets--in my opinion.

Posted by: Kris at March 01, 2017 10:03 AM (nwqNw)








It's Michaelangelo's only signed work. There's also a good story behind that.

When it was completed, it was immediately recognized as a masterpiece. But at one of the public affairs, Michaelangelo was introduced as "our gobbo from Milan" (the Church had hired him for the Pieta while he was working in Milan). For a proud, urbane Florentine like Mikey, that was kind of like being described as "our Okie from Muskogee".

So the next night, he supposedly broke into St Peter's with his hammer and chisel, and signed the sculpture "Michaelangelo Buonarroti, Florentine, made this".

You guys can yuck it up all you want but a few years back we went to Chuck E Cheese and my friends tied a balloon around my wrist so they could find me which meant that I got a balloon, motherfuckers, and you didn't so there.

452 I'm adopted. I was brought to my parent's house in a
nice little bassinet. I was around 8 weeks old. My brother, who was
2, ran after the social worker as she left and said "You left the baby!"

Our daughter is adopted. Biologically she is my husband's niece. His mom and stepdad brought her to us when she was 8 weeks old. Our son was 4 at the time and I was worried that he'd think 'babies come when grandma and grandpa bring them to your house.'

455 Trump pulled a Khan maneuver. You remember when Clinton invited the Khan family to talk about their fallen hero son while criticizing Trump. Trump fell for that trap by responding to it, which allowed his critics to frame him as disrespectful to a Gold Star family.

The voters who care about being disrespectful to a Gold Star family are already on the Trump Train.

Democrat voters don't care. That's why their talking heads are scrambling to call the wife a "prop."

Hear me now and believe me later, the Trump-hating dad will be flooding the talk show zone this weekend. The Dems have to grab back the narrative.
