The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“So to all those Trump-hating demon rats and the mainstream media, keep up the antics. You are all losers. Sore losers. Stupid losers, too dumb to even know you are losing. He said it himself. Just a few minutes ago in Kentucky.”Jeanine Pirro


Quote II


"Even though Angela Merkel was not on the ballot tonight, she was on the ballot. And the vote was a clear vote to end the era of Merkel." Bijan Tavassoli


Quote III

The 'Machine politicians' have shown their colors . . . I feel sorry for the country however as it shows the power of partisan politicians who think of nothing higher than their own interests, and I feel for your future. We cannot stand so corrupt a government for any great length of time."

Theodore Roosevelt, Sr. (1831 - 187, in a letter to his son, Theodore, Jr., December 16, 1877.

h/t Isophorone


Quote IV

[T]here comes a point at which laughter begins to falter, under the simple, steady weight of events. As I’ve noted before, Trump’s record as a force of destruction is profound, whether it be the sabotage of Obamacare, the devastation of democratic norms, or the rattling of NATO. But as the months tick by, there’s a decent case that Trump’s proactive accomplishments are beginning to add up as well: a huge tax cut, two Supreme Court justices, wholesale deregulation, renegotiation of NAFTA, isolation of Iran, and a broader reboot of bilateral nationalism on the world stage. But I’m not talking merely about policy — he has also shifted the entire polity more decisively toward the authoritarian style of government. In this respect, yes, the Trump administration has indeed accomplished much more than many of us want to believe. Andrew Sullivan

There will be math in tonight's ONT. The failure to understand statistics is explained.

In 1999, an English solicitor named Sally Clark went on trial for the murder of her two infant sons. She claimed both succumbed to sudden infant death syndrome. An expert witness for the prosecution, Sir Roy Meadow, argued that the odds of SIDS claiming two children from such an affluent family were 1 in 73 million, likening it to the odds of backing an 80-1 horse in the Grand National four years in a row and winning every time. The jury convicted Clark to life in prison.

But the Royal Statistical Society issued a statement after the verdict insisting that Meadow had erred in his calculation and that there was "no statistical basis" for his stated figure. Clark's conviction was overturned on appeal in January 2003, and the case has become a canonical example of the consequences of flawed statistical reasoning.

If it wasn't for the military, these whiny little bastards wouldn't be in the position they are.

Last week, Google dropped its bid for the Joint Enterprise Defense Infrastructure (JEDI), a massive military cloud computing contract potentially worth up to $10 billion, amid employee backlash and concern the project could violate their “AI principles.” Now an open letter claiming to be from an unspecified number of Microsoft employees is urging the Redmond, Washington-based tech giant to also back down from its own JEDI bid.

In the letter, which was published on blogging site Medium, the employees wrote that they joined Microsoft with “the expectation that the technologies we build will not cause harm or human suffering.” They also accused Microsoft executives of betraying the company’s artificial intelligence principles—ones that state A.I. should be “fair, reliable and safe, private and secure, inclusive, transparent, and accountable”—in pursuit of “short-term profits.”

If you think about it, Christmas isn't all that far away. A Christmas present suggestion for that liberal on your shopping list.

In this brilliantly sensible and funny book, a Harvard-educated shrink and his comedy-writing daughter reveal that the real f-words in life are “feelings” and “fairness.” While most self-help books are about your feelings and fulfilling your wildest dreams, F*ck Feelings will show you how to find a new kind of freedom by getting your head out of your ass and yourself onto the right path toward realistic goals and feasible results. F*ck Feelings is the last self-help book you will ever need!

If a school doesn't have a "Dress Code", it is best you don't implement one at your whim. Principal removed over Trump shirt controversy.

A Harnett County high school principal has been replaced, a week after she asked a high school student to remove a jersey that bore President Donald Trump’s name on the back.

The Harnett school system on Friday announced a new principal for Harnett Central High School. The district said the change is directly related to the actions taken by former Harnett Central Principal Cindy Gordon last week in asking the student not to wear the Trump shirt.

It isn't Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day, but it was given serious consideration.

And you wonder why we consider you Bitches.

I yelled at my husband last night. Not pick-up-your-socks yell. Not how-could-you-ignore-that-red-light yell. This was real yelling. This was 30 minutes of from-the-gut yelling. Triggered by a small, thoughtless, dismissive, annoyed, patronizing comment. Really small. A micro-wave that triggered a hurricane. I blew. Hard and fast. And it terrified me. I’m still terrified by what I felt and what I said. I am almost 70 years old. I am a grandmother. Yet in that roiling moment, screaming at my husband as if he represented every clueless male on the planet (and I every angry woman of 201, I announced that I hate all men and wish all men were dead. If one of my grandchildren yelled something that ridiculous, I’d have to stifle a laugh.

Just thinking out-loud here. I'm guessing sex wasn't on the agenda that night.

Our guess? This father and son are not invited to any store that sells power tools. Genius Award Winners.

A chainsaw-wielding Tennessee father had to have his leg amputated after his son ran him over with a lawn mower, police said.

Officers were called to a home in Bristol, Tennessee, on June 28 and found Douglas Ferguson, 76, bleeding from his head and leg, according to a press release from the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office.

A preliminary investigation indicated that he tried to attack his son with a running chainsaw while his son mowed the yard. His son, who was not identified, ran over his father with the lawn mower as a way to defend himself, the press release stated.

Helping out his fellow man when it is needed most. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Jarete Hucks has given away over $50,000 worth of goods and services. But even more important is the generosity he has inspired in others.

When Hurricane Florence hit South Carolina, many families were flooded out of their homes. Hucks, who owns the Midtown Inn and Cottages, decided to open his doors to those in need.

I do hope former Harnett Central Principal Cindy Gordon is shaking her tiny fist in rage at the injustice of a world in which a student can brazenly support the duly elected president of the United States of America and she's the one who ends up getting fired over it.

19 So, authoritarianism in Sullivan's world means rolling back government regulation, advocating our position on the world stage and winning, and relinquishing power the executive branch abused during the previous administration. Okay, then. Sign me up.

Not necessarily, though she's gonna hafta scramble for a new coalition. The fucking Green Party was one of the biggest gainers, going from like 11% to 18.5%.

35 On the radio today, I heard a clip of Bernie Sanders telling people that one-party rule is bad and if people want the government to represent them, not just represent the Rich, they need to elect Democrats.

Now, in my perception, the last two years is the best representation I've experienced in decades. Not only that, but after eight years of businesses closing in our community, we now have new construction all over the place, including road improvements.

We also have a president who constantly demonstrates that he cares about the things that are important to us.

I hope a lot of people can tell that Bernie is full of baloney.

76 I used to read the f*ck feelings blog (and yes the asterisk is part of the name), and found some of the advice useful. A lot of it is just cognitive therapy type stuff.

The shrink, Dr. Lastname, is a lib, so I don't read f*ck feelings much since PDT's election. But there's still some useful stuff.

79 29 Why are covered bridges covered?
Posted by: davidt at October 14, 2018 10:23 PM (9qyA/)

To try to protect the wood planks from snow and ice.

Also, most of these bridges were built in the days of snow rollers, pre- snow plow.

They used to use horses to pull huge rollers down streets to compress the snow. Which is kind of ingenious when you think about it.

That'll fuck up your wood timbered bridge pretty quickly.

You mean "human suffering" like ISIS beheading people, young girls being kidnapped by Muslims and forced into sex slavery? Go enjoy the life America has given you, you bunch of dummies. And praise Jesus that you weren't born in Nigeria.

I guess all they need to do is concoct some lame rationalization like this 70 yo bitch and they're good to go, right? People should stop demonizing abusive men and make them courageous heroes like abusive women.

Round 1 Palin beat Lisa's poppa in the GOP Alaska Governor's race.


Round 2 decimated poppa Murkowski's corrupt cronies as Governor.

Round 3 Palin backed Tea Party candidate beats Lisa in GOP Alaska Senate Primary.

Round 4 Lisa weasels her way to winning the Senate seat with the help of the GOPe.

Round 5 Lisa re-establishes the Family Business.


So far 3 rounds for Palin, 2 for Lisa.

114 F*ck Feelings money quotes I like:

- Don't begin the process of self-improvement by listing all the reasons you suck. Nobody wants to hear it, least of all us.

- Just as everybody wants to go to heaven without having to die, everyone wants to find true love without having to suffer through dates.

- You haven't failed as a spouse if your partner isn't happy. Your vows said something about "in sickness and in health," not, "with god-like powers to make things perfect forever."

- A good person isn't the angel with the beatific smile of love, but the pissed off banshee who grins and bears it, acts decently, and knows how to negotiate.

- Just because mental illness doesn't have a clear cause or a cure doesn't mean it's a death sentence. It's merely a life sentence, so you might as well stop groping for answers and learn to deal.

119 I heard Rush talking about that 70 year old nut case this week. It is one of the few times I can recall yelling in anger at the radio. Her big takeaway this that the only way men can redeem themselves for our natural inclination to rape and abuse is to band together on our own to figure out how we can stop being men and respect women.

I think my exact words were "Fuck you, worry about yourself, I'm not spending one second trying to figure out on my own how to satisfy your impossible demands."

Annoys me when I hear a group of women going on an on about how tough their lives have been because of men. Guess what, men's lives aren't so easy dealing with women either, we have just learned not to complain about it.

That being said the fact Bill Clinton was "credibly accused" of multiple rapes is a bigger deal. Oh, and his admitting that he sexually harassed a woman (Paula Jones).

144 speaking of idiots, I saw this on yahoo today:

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders likely violated ethics regulations when she posted a photo on her official White House Twitter account of Kanye West wearing a MAGA hat, a watchdog group charged.

West's hat touts President Donald Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again." Sanders posed with the rapper for the photo after his wild appearance in the Oval Office Thursday with Trump.

The group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint Friday with the Office of Special Counsel, accusing Sanders of violating the Hatch Act. The act forbids federal employees from using their influence, position, work resources or social media accounts to affect the "results of an election."

159 West's hat touts President Donald Trump's campaign slogan, "Make America Great Again." Sanders posed with the rapper for the photo after his wild appearance in the Oval Office Thursday with Trump.

The group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint Friday with the Office of Special Counsel, accusing Sanders of violating the Hatch Act. The act forbids federal employees from using their influence, position, work resources or social media accounts to affect the "results of an election."

This is all kinds of twisted. The President is not suitable for a patriotic theme? A couple of whiny anti-Trumpers gripe and rule the stadium? Or did the Principal just make up the people complaining? Anyway, fired. Hahaha. Nelson Muntz point and guffaw.

211 "- You haven't failed as a spouse if your partner isn't happy."

That conclusion depends on more evidence. If the spouse was a happy person before they married, then it may be that the other dragged them down. On the other hand, some are just determined to be unhappy their entire lives, no matter who they're with. Only advice is to stay away from those people.

2 people can only live together successfully if they've both got the ability to live apart successfully. Any who move in with someone in order to make up for something lacking in themselves (and oh so many do) is guaranteeing future heartache and disaster. Just something I've watched happen countless times over the years.

Looking for book suggestions on the following topics:

1st, Good biographies on Confederate Generals, with autobiographies being even better;

2nd, Books/writings from pre-Civil War America where slavery was either justified or condemned based on Christian teaching/theology; and

3rd, A good history of the growth/development of Christianity before Emperor Constantine.

If anyone has any good suggestions, let me know.

234 I told my Ex that there was no possible way for me to make her happy, and that the choice to be happy or not was hers alone

It isn't just spouses that demand to be made happy. My mother and her older sister were narcissists of this type. I figured out part way through high school that they used their claims of unhappiness as a club to beat others into doing what they wanted, and that they were never satisfied with anything anyone else did to try to "make them happy." I basically kept my distance from them after I finished college, but unfortunately you can't divorce blood relatives.

235 I tried to have that convo as well -- "you know, happiness is a "me" thing, not a "other people" thing -- you're setting yourself up for failure if you're looking for your own happiness in other people. If you're not happy, that's not my fault."

She didn't buy it.

279 An expert witness for the prosecution, Sir Roy Meadow, argued that the odds of SIDS claiming two children from such an affluent family were 1 in 73 million, likening it to the odds of backing an 80-1 horse in the Grand National four years in a row and winning every time. The jury convicted Clark to life in prison.

But the Royal Statistical Society issued a statement after the verdict insisting that Meadow had erred in his calculation and that there was "no statistical basis" for his stated figure. Clark's conviction was overturned on appeal in January 2003, and the case has become a canonical example of the consequences of flawed statistical reasoning.


The first problem is that SIDS is not any sort of real "disease" so it's hard to put any sort of statistical figures on it. But that was the defense attorney's responsibility ... or whatever crazy sort of thing they have in Britain.

Of course, in Britain, the odds of two infants going to the hospital for runny noses and ending up dead is only about 2:1.

There is a reason why Freud referred to children's witnessing adult sexual intercourse as the primal scene. According to ol' Siggy, kids are traumatized by it because they interpret the act as a form of violence.

Let the terrain and vegetation help guide. I'd rule out the .243, not because it's not a great cartridge, 'cause it is.

But deer is kind of it's upper limits. .270 has killed thousands of elk, and the .308 is right behind in that regard.

VERY slight edge to .308 if weight is an issue, as it uses the "short" action, whereas the .270 resides in the .30-'06 length receiver.

.270 shoots faster, flatter, but with lighter bullets.

.308 is only 50 fps slower than the '06, and shoots damn near any weight bullet in the .308 diameter.

Hope that helps?

My neighborhood is changing for the better, except for the hoarder next door. We used to have vandalism, drunken spousal fights, and drug dealers. Now kids run up and down the street and parents are outside chatting and watching the neighborhood.

A week ago, I noticed a neighbor outside who has a plumbing company truck. I stopped and asked him if he could inspect my crawl space. I have been wanting to check the dingbat plumbing job but I still cannot put a lot of pressure on my shin.

He said it looked good, told me how to remove the traps if I ever needed to, and charged me nothing! Then he showed me pics of the type of plumbing he does and I realized I had gotten a surgeon to make a housecall.

He remembered when the street and its parallel one was cruddy. But the adults back then were mostly white collar, whereas we now have construction workers, carpenters, nurses, and MAGA hat wearers.

Except for behaviorists, all forms of psychotherapy have been found to be essentially useless.

But people go to psychotherapists because they have to pay a "friend" to listen them, not because anyone has any expectation taht they are going to get "better".

On the other hand, the psychiatrists are very effective ... at something. They use drugs so powerful that they can't help but have a major effect. Of course, they're drugging society to stupidity and even worse insanity ... but, dem's de breaks. On the bright side, having more lunatic spree killers running around adds a certain "electricity" to life ...

when I go there I asked him if he was familiar with the building and other things. he replied he had delivered to the building many times. great.

then he asks if the building has a cart? nope. do you have a cart for me? nope.

he brings up a couple of cases then bangs on our door to let me know that he needs help carrying it in .

when I told him I was not going to he replied that his back was starting to bother him and he did not want me to have to pay for his back injury. I told him not to worry because I would not.

then he told me he was not going to deliver the rest of the order. I told him that was fine and he could sort it out with amazon.

366 so even funnier is that this afternoon we were leaving the apartment and someone was delivering the same order. we opened the door and heard someone mumbling a stream of invective as they stacked a case of water by the door. when they stood up it was moe tiny asian woman who was not even 5 feet tall. she was smart enough to have a cart with her and even better her daughter, who was an inch shorter.

we exchanged awkward pleasantries and left. when we got in our car we looked back to see that the woman and her daughter had gone back to their car to get the rest of the order. they were driving a brand new small mercedes suv.

one funny thing is that these to tiny people who spoke American english without any accent were apparently willing do the job that the other guy wasn't.

I think he even had a link to a piece that quoted Jemele Hill as she belatedly discovered that a group of black men really didn't like what happened to Kavanaugh. Said piece went on to note that black men far and away suffer from false sexual assault accusations (presumably this means instances in which the accuser recants) at a level completely out of proportion with their percentage of the population.

387 201 Can you recommend any good books on the history of Venice? I'm going through a Venice phase at the moment.

John Julius Norwich's A History of Venice is long (almost 700 pages) but has received good reviews; it's an enjoyable read that covers the history of the city from its foundation in the 5th century to 1797, when Napoleon put an end to the Venetian Republic. You could probably find an inexpensive secondhand copy through Alibris or Amazon.

On one of the daytime gorilla threads a week or two ago, CBD included an old photo of a black man hanging from a tree with a group of white men standing nearby. The caption read:

"A woman accused him of sexual assault.
That was good enough for us."

It was a pretty gruesome photo and he deleted it after some commenters complained, but it was dead bang accurate and I wish that meme could be spread far and wide.

* WTF with "destruction of democratic norms"? This is a baseless and weird slander much beloved among the unthinking punditocracy, of which Sullivan has long been a member


* O-care came pre-sabotaged, you idiot (Sullivan) - um it was in all the papers. Disastrously bad "solution" to a problem that didn't exist, introducing major new problems, devastating for millions, exacerbated all existing problems - *all* of which have to do with the destruction of insurance, and its substitution by a frankenstein of some insurance, massive cost shifting, subsidies, etc., implemented by oligopolies, all groaning under massive over-regulation


* WTF with "authoritarian" governance style? One example, please?


* the only destruction of "norms" was the tsunami of lawlessness under Obama, which crested with the unprecedented abuse of the intel and law enforcement tools of the fed. govt. to influence and election and then attempt to negate the results thereof.

I told her that all else aside, the media that worshipped Yeezy for fifteen years would turn on him like a rabid like a rabid dog immediately. She thought I was crazy.

She called me the next day, shocked at what they were saying, and asking how I knew it would it happen.

She sat and listened for ninety minutes as I laid out the sick, abusive codependent relationships between Dems and blacks, and the media's role as role as enforcers for the Dem pimps. How afraid the Dems are of a powerful black man telling blacks to think for themselves.

Afterward, she thanked me for the conversation, and said she would pass on what she'd heard to friends and family.

I've nailed down my fav beef stew.

Best tip/hack from seriouseats: brown the entire chuck steak before you cut it into chunks. Rest for a few minutes, of course.

Chicken and beef stock for the beginning liquor, and some red vino with a ton of fried mushrooms at the beginning.

Simmer that base with disposable veg. Don't bother with the fine chopping of the 1st carrots and veg. Dip them out and move on to the 2nd hour with fresh, fine chopped veg.

Thing is, it is a hoax.

.30-30 with Hornady Accu-Tips, is a legit 200 yd deerslayer. .303 Brit, another 100 yards for crappy guns, another 300 yards for the sterling of the breed.

We really can't delve into leverdom, here. Detours like .356 Win, abound.

466 So, in CO we have prop 112, which is to drastically increase setbacks in a fashion which would eliminate gas drilling in our state.

The energy folks hit back by putting Amendment 74 on the ballot, which is to force the government to pay property owners for any government measure that reduces their property value (such as stripping their mineral rights with 112).

I think 112 is doomed. But 74 may pass. If so, it will open up state and local governments to a shit-ton of lawsuits, frivolous and legitimate.

The vulnerable governments would be the state and Denver regional council of governments.

Governments I despise. And in the case of DRCOG, idiot taxpayers I hate would be on the hook. I would be too, but I can take one for the team.

If this comes to pass, I will begin community organizing... I would like to make sure that laws passed by Denver and Boulder end up resulting in disastrous class action lawsuits whenever possible. Preferably with a sleaze dripping attack dog attorney like Avenatti (but competent).

476 apropos gigio of nothing in particular

Baby sister called today and asked if I wanted her vintage Radio Shack TRS-80 Model I kit which has been sitting in a box since 199?. Since it was worth nothing on e-bay. !

She says the keyboard has no D key (but still works, heh). The expansion box has some kind of problem. She could get one of the external 5" drives to light up but not spin. No monitor.

I told her, sure, I'd take it. I have 2 - or more like 1.7 - Model I set-ups, my original 1978-80 kit, and somebody's I bought decades ago. But I'm not sure I have any working drives for mine either, which is kind of essential.

Told Sis that I always dreamed of getting the system up & running again, just for fun. If I ever have the space and the time. Or maybe her box of Model I will sit next to mine until some archeologist discovers them some day.

I think the big collection of 80 Magazine got moldy, though. But I have all the original doc.

Andrew also thinks it is possible to be both a populist and Authoritarian, he needs to look up words before using them.

Trump is less Authoritarian than Obama, or Bush for that matter... he's the least Authoritarian president we've had, maybe ever. And gives many more interviews with the press, even though they treat him terribly... he proves they are idiots every time he does an interview.

I didn't always believe Trump did it all on purpose, but I think now that he actually does do it on purpose, stir them up I mean... he just kicks that hornet's nest and they show things they never meant the world to see.

Could be a stable genius... I think he actually could be.

.243 - .270 - .308

a short reason for your choice would be appreciated.
Posted by: jakee308 at October 14, 2018 11:36 PM

Have you considered 45-70 gov?
Seriously, though, I think the calculation should go like this:

1- Unless you are pinpoint accurate and your local deer are small, or you are very recoil sensitive, I'd screen out the .243
2- If you plan on shooting at long ranges, and aren't going to be precise on the exact distance (known distance, laser, etc), .270 will be more forgiving with bullet drop.
3- .308 will hit harder, so less tracking and more forgiving on slightly off hits. If you're in a northern state with really big deer, or an area with lots of ravines shit deer will run in to to make you drag them out, this becomes more appealing.

Until recently, Iowa only allowed shotguns and muzzleloaders, so I can only look on in envy. We just got straightwalled cartridges of .40 and above allowed, so now I'm considering something in the .450, .45-70 or .444 range. Or maybe just a really nice, long range muzzle loader instead on my cheap little CVA Wolf.

594 Chuck Schemer Has Become Ralph Nader of the Dangers of Limousines

Schemer: "For every inch longer a limousine is, the more dangerous they are."


Fuck Choomer's schtick is giving a version of the same speech: "It's too bad someone had to die before Congress acted!"

He's among the most despicable human beings walking the earth today.

Schemer: "For every inch longer a limousine is, the more dangerous they are."

I'm wondering why he didn't come up with some bogus statistic to drive a wedge between men and women. That seems to be their long-term strategy.

Something like, '98% of women killed in limousine accidents are because of male drivers. That's no accident.'

To be fair, you'd have to replace Bill Clinton with William Jefferson Blythe, Linda Lovelace with Linda Susan Boreman and Tiger Woods with Eldrick Woods.
