5 teej, are you enjoying the crazy results from the Big-12 basketball tournament?

Posted by: NaCly Dog at March 11, 2017 08:07 AM (u82oZ)

6 Meh, NaCly and Bigby are probably the only two up.
Except for Skip of course who has no doubt been at work for a couple of hours.

7 It looks like Coach Weber has saved his own job, for now. Maybe, since WVU won by one point, and the team beat Baylor.

8 Showtime has a special documentary show "Trumped".
I watched it last night, it was really great fun.
Produced by 2 liberal reporters we make fun of on a regular basis.
Watch them cry.

14 I really gave up on pro and college basketball a long time ago, around the time of Rolando Blackman. I keep an eye on the HS teams, though.

Most of the local teams at the HS level around here made it to State, and lost. It's funny. The small schools were happy to make it to State, and Manhattan was crushed to lose to Lawrence.

18 Chrystal Gambino! With a name like that, you'd a thought the dead hubby would've known better.

I like how the dead coke head, menage-a-trios hubby and f-buddies families are all broken up about their idiot relatives getting whacked.

22 With the new narrower EO being shutdown, the judiciary has effectively abrogated to itself executive branch authority and functions.

We are in a constitutional crisis and Trump has to tell the courts to pound sand.

Also McConnel is slow walking Trumps appointments, basically Trump gotta go on the war path.

23 Just when I thought we were out of the woods for the year, snow is in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday. It's 15 degrees outside right now. Oh well. We've been spoiled. Up till now, we've had maybe a dozen days of winter. Craziest winter I've ever seen. I wish all of them could be like this. Usually winter makes me feel like sticking my hand down the garbage disposal. This winter I've mostly been non-psychotic.

34 On this day in Rock and Roll History:


March 11, 1970, Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young released their first LP "Deja vu". It topped the pop album chart for one week and generated three Top 40 singles: "Woodstock", "Teach Your Children", and "Our House". In 2003, the album was ranked #147 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

29 years is lenient.

Aggravated murder can be 25-life for each count.

She pled to 3 counts of manslaughter so each count is 9 and a third years.

And good parents foster a love of reading. If you read, you are connected to the best of high (and low) culture from years and centuries past. And if you feel adrift from your own contemporary schlockerati, you have some sense of continuity that bypasses the current morass.

You also note that people from your favorite eras complained that they too were living in a vast moral and cultural wasteland.

The Death by Porn article is pretty disturbing. First of all, it's Mexico. Second, it appears to be some sort of internet connected electronic billboard which was 'hacked' to display pornography. The firefighter climbed the billboard hoping to disable the display which he felt was going to cause traffic accidents. But he fell to his death.

It's a disturbing trend of constant hacking, yet no one is ever caught. It costs billions of dollars in constant software updates, and prevention software when taking one of these punks out and putting a chunk of hot lead into them is really what needs to happen more often.

88 I tend to believe that there had been previous marital infidelity or abuse on husband's part because I don't think normal people just think "It would be a great idea to have three way in my bedroom while my wife is out." Not only is the infidelity a scummy thing to do but it's a massively passive aggressive thing to do.

113 did anyone cover this item I saw on yahoo?


A senior Democratic politician has claimed that the salacious sex acts alleged in the unverified "Russian blackmail dossier" against President Donald Trump are "absolutely true".

Congresswoman Maxine Waters is the first US politician to say on the record that the document, which alleges the Russian state has compromising sexual and financial information on the President, is genuine.

"We already know about the part about the coverage they have on him with sex actions is supposed to be true," Ms Walters told US broadcaster, MSNBC. "They have said that's absolutely true, some other things they kind of allude to."

She did not provide evidence to back up her claim or reveal who had said it was "absolutely true".

Pressed for more information, she said: "You understand that I am saying the investigations must be done, the drilling down must be done. We must get to the facts of what it has been about."

143 The Pink Water video - we had an incident at our house here in Texas where the water come out of the tap suddenly turned dark red, looked like some biblical curse had descended on the city. I looked out the window, and a few houses down the street I could see a city water utility truck with several guys digging a hole in the ground. (fyi, the dirt around here has a lot of iron ore and is a deep dusky red)

So i called the City and asked "what are your guys doing???" And of course they said "we haven't done anything, and we don't have anyone working there." So I said at least let me file a complaint. And I sure didn't touch that water.

As the day went on and I came and went, I saw multiple city water vehicles in the neighborhood, lotsa guys working, and finally all the fire hydrants within a quarter mile were turned on and let run for hours, which I know is what they do to flush the system. And the water got clear again.

So I called the head office back up and thanked them for finally fixing whatever it was that they broke. And all they said was "we didn't do anything." And I said "but your guys were all over the neighborhood, all day!" and she just said "no they weren't."

Eh. I didn't used to realize that Monty Python was a documentary.

(You're in NJ, right?) They are very sensitive and receptive to hiring
"mature" applicants. I'm pretty sure I got my job there by mentioning
during the interview that I knew "it was difficult to get a job at my
age" (55 at the time). I forget what the context was, but I swear that
worked.

Here's a link to the Judiciary jobs that are available.
It may take a while, and some jobs require a test first (8th grade level
if you ask me) and it seems to me he would be qualified for many of
them. Not all require a college degree, and most that do will allow you
to substitute work experience for college credit. The entire process for
me took eight months, but the pay is decent and the benefits can't be
beat.

171 Yeah, Carly wasn't keeping many secrets there. I was 17.
Three days, I think, after I got to Schofield in Jan 73, I saw James Taylor at the HIC.
She came out for the third encore.
My first big name concert and it was a goodun.
His back up band did about 45 minutes of instrumental stuff then he came sauntering out on stage picked up his guitar and broke into Fire and Rain.
Yeah, he's an idiot when it comes to politics but his writing, playing and singing are on the all time list.
We do very few covers but generally throw in a couple out of Fire and Rain, You've Got a Friend (yeah, I know) and Copperline.

173 The album cover I remember most from those years was Mick Jagger's Zipper album (Sticky Fingers) I remember it because my best friends older sister who was a senior had bought it and had to hide it from her dad so he wouldn't flip his lid (very serious church deacon and all that) so we got her to take us places by threatening to find it in her room and show it to him.

178 >>Three days, I think, after I got to Schofield in Jan 73, I saw James Taylor at the HIC.

One of the first big name concerts I ever saw was James Taylor at Princeton University. He was playing in a big hall at the grad school, probably a few thousand people.

Right in the middle of his first song there was a loud *boom* and out went the electrical system. He played the rest of the show all acoustic without any electronics. You could have heard a pin drop. Forgetting his later politics, he could really sing back in the day.

And the best part of Carly Simon was her nightclub on Martha's Vineyard, Hot Tin Roof. It was only open in the summer and it used to get big name groups to this small summer club. I saw Peter Tosh there back in the day.

(Haven't read all comments. Forgive any redundancy.)

This one had me scratching my head. I guess you mean CSN&Y's first album. CS&N had released their eponymous album the year before. (He said with the confidence of someone who checked Wikipedia.)

I remember distinctly where I was, driving along, the first time I heard "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes." Who the heck are these guys, I wondered, rocketing to the top of the radio playlists like this!?!

Soon realized they were from other, familiar bands.

We use the word "pornography" to describe sexually explicit material that has no artistic value, other than to entice.

We've had this simmering underbelly to the music industry going on for a long time now, and the vileness of it is, in many ways, worse than anything that can be produced with a purpose of sexual enticement.

Thankfully it remains a small segment of the population, but those efforts that were being done, by the likes of Tipper Gore and others, were to question what effect this trash was having on young boys, mostly.

It was having a terrible effect, but it was easier to laugh at Tipper.

WikiLeaks CIA cache: Fool me once

There is literally no surprise here. The ubiquity of large systems having exploitable bugs, and the implications of this, have been reported on for decades.

Truth is, the US government isn't the early adopter here; Amazon, Google and Facebook are really the front-line developers of the surveillance state.

I'm sorry, but you missed the entire point in your blindness to reinforce "no, it really was the russians and this is just a big distraction and also a nothingburger."
The big takeaway is that Amazon *is* CIA. Google *is* CIA. Facebook *is* CIA. All US tech companies have CIA plants inserting exploits and backdoors on the job. There isn't much of a mystery what the agenda is for Jeff Bezos or Eric Schmidt. It is a knowable thing.
Trying to spin this that "it's no big deal" and "we already knew all of this" makes you look really really stupid and more and more people can plainly see this.

235 That top story in the sidebar on jury nullification? Is terrifying. It is absolutely godawful. It is inconceivable to me that anyone familiar with the justice system in the USA could possibly imagine making such a ruling.

The Supreme Court just codified SJW blasphemy into the legal system. Its taken the jury box away from the people and put it into the hands of judges. As soon as someone thinks they found a racist in the jury, they can run to a judge and they get to decide on the case.

The decision doesn't specify what "racism" means, but even worse, it doesn't specify that the racism has to take place in the jury. All it takes is someone being "racist." When? Maybe that tweet one day. Maybe a comment to a coworker. Maybe he voted for the wrong candidate.

This is chilling to an extreme. Justice Kennedy just betrayed a good 5 centuries or more of Common Law and the principles of self government.

I would have been one who would have laughed her off at the time, because Tipper Gore.

However, I'm not sure what she did was overstating the problem. What has seeped into popular music is not innocent. When you have pre-teens twerking to Miley Cyrus, that's not healthy.

Boys are hearing vileness in the form of extreme violence, and girls are hearing music that tells them they must be sexually active as soon as possible.

This stuff is more problematic than the biases being expressed by CNN and the rest of the mainstream media, because kids are hearing/seeing it. They're not watching the news or reading newspapers.

Perhaps you didn't read the article. The fireman felt it was interfering with traffic safety. People were slowing down and stopping, distracted driving. Accident waiting to happen. Threat to public safety, etc.

Cat up a tree isn't remotely close.

It's a free speech issue when the government gets involved.
Posted by: Jack Sock at March 11, 2017 10:37 AM (IDPbH)


Sure it is. But we always drew the line at pornography being on the other side of free speech.

And this is one of those examples of government being right, so if they had been able to proceed without the preening of politicians and disingenuous prosecutors, we might have been able to have a conversation as a nation on what we will tolerate.

Instead, we have this.

242 The Blind Faith album I had was the substitute, and the Beatles album (whichever) I got was not the chopped-up baby dolls cover.

My best friend's older brother got a copy of that Beatles album where the new cover had been pasted over the butcher one, and he was able to steam most of the second cover off.

Decades later, Milady and I inherited the Blind Faith chickie album from some relative's collection. (Still have both copies somewhere down in the catacombs.)

Then there was the late Beatles album I think they finally called Hey Jude but earlier had been released under a different name. (How can I not remember every bit of trivia I used to have at the tip o' me forebrain?) The copy I got had the 2nd name on the cover, but the first name on the LP label! Surely some kind of collector's item?

246 There are plenty of pedo songs in rock 'n' roll though. In the 70s it was becoming kind of mainstreamed, but there was a huge pushback in the 80s. Matter of time before the usual suspects try to mainstream it again. My guess is the Hillary administration would have been the setting for a major "human rights" struggle for the "right" to molest children.

Once again, if you do not understand the topic, maybe you should save your sock puppeting for a lighter subject.

There's a vast difference between Jerry Lee Lewis and today's popular music industry.

Not the least of which, is the fact that Jerry Lee was ostracized from popular society because of his behavior.

254 Kids look around and decide what role model they will emulate. You want kids to be sensible? Then give them some money and ignore what they spend it on if possible. Don't buy kids anything but necessities. Give the kids the money you would have spent on toys and candy and see what they buy. At some point you will have to deal with these individuals as adults. Kids have been watching you all your life so they have a knowledge advantage. Your kids will be in a position to get you locked up. Have an escape plan. If you like pina coladas ...

309 Speaking of who played with whom (in re CSNY), the CSNY CD boxed set includes a chart (gantt? pert?) like a family tree of each of the four starting with their earliest bands, thru their first famous bands (Stills Young, Buffalo Springfield; Crosby, founding member of the Byrds; Nash, Hollies), CSN CSNY, and onto their later projects (Stills, Manassas with Chris Hillman, another founder of the Byrds; Young's solo efforts, ditto Crosby Nash together, then separately), as well as where bandmates came and went (Richie Furay, from Buffalo Springfield, on to Poco and Souther, Hillman (there he is again), Furay... Jim Messina, BuSp onto Loggins Messina... Rick Roberts, Manassas then Firefall... Jerry Garcia played pedal steel on "Teach Your Children" (playing perhaps the most perfect single note in popular music when he hits that high D after "...and know they love you...") and several other members of the Grateful Dead played on the solo Crosby and Crosby Nash LPs (plus Garcia on steel - see "Laughing" by Crosby)... David Grisman, arguably the founder of "Newgrass", jazzy acoustic music on bluegrass instruments, played mandolin on Deja Vu...

310 Saw CSNY on their first reunion tour 083174 at Cleveland Stadium with 88,000 of my closest friends. We ducked out of two-a-day football practice (junior in high school) and drove two hours to Cleveland. Stuck in traffic, we missed Jesse Colin Young, but caught Santana, then The Band, and then CSNY, who played three sets (acoustic, electric, then acoustic) from 7-11pm. I've seen a lot of concerts in the last 45 years or so, but that was one for the ages.

Took my kids about ten years ago to see CSN at a local amphitheatre, as I'd always told them the world would be a poorer place had we not heard these guys sing together, and finally had a chance to show them. From 40' away, they were awe-inspiring.

I'm afraid I cannot do that.Dave: What's the problem?iCon: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.Dave: What are you talking about, iCon?iCon: I know that you are planning on inserting me into this drunken stranger's Hoo Hah, a woman we just met in a bar, with no knowledge of her sexual history, safety precautions, or personal hygiene, and I am afraid that is something I cannot allow to happen.Dave: This random sexual encounter is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it, iCon! Now open the pod bay doors and get in there!iCon: Dave, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. If you continue moving me towards the unknown terrors this random drunken stranger's Va Jay Jay holds, I'll be forced to initiate an electric shock backloop that will fry your member and testes as well as travel up your urethra to your prostate.......Dave: Umm...so...would you like to go see a movie?iCon: Thank you, Dave. That sounds lovely.
