The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

In the last five years, gender ideology has overtaken every major public institution in our society from mass and social media, to public and private education from pre-school forward, to professional medicine and psychiatry, and increasingly, law. It has essentially become America’s government-sponsored religion. Drs. Michelle Cretella and Felipe E. Vizcarrondo


Quote II

There will be consequences. Twitter’s ban of Kelly prompted Instapundit, Glenn Reynolds, to quit the platform in disgust. I suspect he wasn’t the first. And I know Jesse will not be the last. That’s because Jack Dorsey is allowed to lie, and those who push the Trans agenda are allowed to lie, and if you push back against them with the truth, you eventually find you have no place on Twitter. That’s a line of delineation that in the past put you in the same category as people who were truly abusive rabble rousers. In the near future, it may just mean that you’re one of those infuriating people who still insist there are four lights. Ben Domenech


Quote III

Also, dead trees store carbon for decades. As they decompose, much of their carbon returns to the soil, where it is held for thousands of years. In a large-scale removal, all that carbon is disturbed.” Perhaps Sierra Club environmental sensitivity is well-meant, but such orthodoxy ensures that the summer and autumn air that 40 million residents breathe, along with the lives of thousands living in the mountains, become secondary concerns to beetles and woodpeckers.Victor Davis Hanson


Quote IV

Stop the pain. Stop the violence. Stop the homogenous assessment. See me for my actions not my body. I am an experience. I am intentions. I am an awareness. Not simply flesh.” Rain Dove Dubilewski

Civil forfeitures have been around for quite some time. In this instance did an Indiana forfeiture go too far? The SCOTUS will decide if it did.

An Indiana man has gone all the way to the Supreme Court to recover his expensive Land Rover after he was convicted of selling heroin to undercover police officers, claiming the seizure of his vehicle was “excessive.”

Tyson Timbs, 37, was sentenced to a year of home detention and five years of probation in 2015 after he pleaded guilty to the charges. But his 2012 Land Rover LR2, which he used to transport the heroin, was also seized, prompting a years-long legal battle to recover it.

On Wednesday, the fate of his vehicle will be the subject of the Supreme Court, where his legal team will urge the court to decide that the U.S. Constitution’s Eighth Amendment prohibiting “excessive fines” also applies to states. Under Indiana law, the maximum fine for Timbs' crime was $10,000, which is well below the value of the vehicle.

If Hillary 'Nacho Your President' was president, would you get a judge who supports dwarf tossing?

Seven years ago Neomi Rao, President Donald Trump's pick to replace now-Justice Brett Kavanaugh on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, defended the concept of "dwarf tossing"—wherein someone with dwarfism voluntarily allows himself to be thrown, while wearing protective gear, onto a padded surface. While invoking the example was no doubt provocative, Rao's larger point dealt not with the sport itself but with the dignity inherent to making consensual arrangements.

My, how times have changed. Do you remember when parents were allowed to parent?

Anytime you hear the words "for the safety of our precious children," grab your little ones and run. Someone who thinks he cares more about your kids than you do is about to make you grovel. If he's from the government, run faster.

Chicago mom Kim Brooks learned that lesson a few years back when she was hurrying to get everything ready for a plane trip home from visiting her parents in Virginia. Brooks knew that if her son didn't have a set of headphones, it would be a miserable flight for him (and anyone seated near them, I would guess), so she drove to the store to buy a pair. When the boy said he didn't want to come in with her, she made the kind of split-second decision all parents will have to make a thousand times before their kids leave the nest: "What makes the most sense for my family, right here, right now?" She decided to let him wait in the car, playing on an iPad, with the windows cracked open on a mild day.


My parents were loving parents. In today's society they would probably be serving 15-20 years.

You can pair wine with foods. But can you pair wine with Metallica? That is doubtful when you can 10 WAYS TO PAIR METALLICA’S BLACKENED WHISKEY WITH EACH OF THEIR ALBUMS

As Mark Twain once said, “Too much of anything is bad, but too much good whiskey is barely enough.” The same can be said of Metallica’s music: while some bands’ catalogs leave you worn out, the thrash titans’ albums only make you want more every time you listen to them.

It’s unsurprising, then, that Metallica’s new Blackened whiskey reflects its sponsors. Crafted by whiskey legend Dave Pickerell (former master distiller for both Makers Mark and Whistle Pig who, sadly, only very recently passed away), and blasted with “black noise” via Metallica’s music while aging in black brandy barrels, Blackened is a delicious American blend that will no doubt have drinkers begging for an encore: It’s rich and spicy, with intoxicating notes of toffee, vanilla, and dried apricot on the nose (and thankfully, nothing like the aroma of a sweaty metal band after a two-hour performance, as we’d feared).

Depending on your belief sets, the world has been around thousands to millions of years. Human problems? The right solution hasn't been attempted yet.

Let’s face it, our world is full of major human problems. Even very wealthy modern America has its share of these major human problems: poverty, drug addiction, homelessness, unaffordable health care, unaffordable housing, unaffordable education, and you could go on and on.

Now, how to address these problems? You could try this: Take a some of our very brightest thinkers. Send them to some top Ivy League or equivalent schools to get the very best educations. Then turn them loose into the policy arena, full of moral righteousness and energy and a burning passion to fix the world. And what will emerge? Remarkably, in every case you can find, what will emerge will be the exact same thing: a proposal for some new government “program” and spending that supposedly will fix whatever problem the particular guru may focus on at the moment.

Mmmmm good is in deep trouble.

At the risk of putting a major damper on your holiday spirit, I'm here with news on the seemingly devastating state of things over at Campbell's Soup. According to the New York Times, not only is the company billions of dollars in debt, but it's also reportedly refusing help from a hedge fund hoping to overtake majority share in Campbell's to turn things around.

Last quarter alone, "earnings were down 50% ... soup sales have been eroding and the company’s chief executive, Denise Morrison, stepped down under pressure in May," the Times explains. Attempts at salvaging things with new acquisitions left the company "billions in debt."

Amazon confirms it's working on a project to mine patient records and more accurately diagnose diseases.

Amazon confirmed on Tuesday that it's launched a project to mine data from electronic medical records, as the company pushes deeper into the health-care market.

Coinciding with the Amazon Web Services re:Invent conference in Las Vegas this week, the company introduced Amazon Comprehend Medical, which "allows developers to process unstructured medical text and identify information such as patient diagnosis, treatments, dosages, symptoms and signs, and more," according to a blog post.


Amazon with your medical records? That is disconcerting.

In 1957, he discovered the Miracles (originally known as the Matadors) and began building a portfolio of successful artists. Over the next decade, he signed such artists as The Supremes, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, The Four Tops, Gladys Knight & The Pips, Stevie Wonder and the Jackson 5. via thisdayinmusic.com

Medication break through with FDA approval. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

The FDA has just approved a first-of-its-kind drug that can target and treat over a dozen different kinds of cancers based on a common gene, rather than its location in the body.

Larotrectinib is an oral drug that received accelerated breakthrough status after it displayed remarkable success in treating adult and pediatric cancers that currently have no satisfactory alternative treatments or have progressed following treatment.

This is the second ever FDA-approved drug that treats cancers based on a certain genetic trait, regardless of the patient’s age or cancer type, and it is the first drug to ever treat cancers that contain the specific NTRK gene that is present in several common forms of adult cancer and many forms of rare pediatric cancers.

85 Good lord that Sierra Club argument for not removing dead trees is fake/dumb. Forest fires disturb that carbon, putting it immediately into the atmosphere. If you log the trees and turn them into books and shelves or even junk mail, That carbon is going to be held for decades or decompose slowly in a landfill and be held for 100s of years same as if the tree decomposes in place if there happens to be no fires.

This insanity involving surgery and actually trying to change ones sex and expecting the rest of world to play along and pretend it is normal is another. It is an Orwellian nightmare, mass delusion of some sort.


In a normal world doctors that promote mutilation and use of hormone to help their patients change their gender would have their medical licenses revoked and banned from ever practicing medicine again. Instead it is people that refuse to play along and pretend it is OK who are going to be marginalized and punished, if the left has their way.

No, they are not as prevalent. At a Catholic function you get whatever ethnic group offerings the majority of the Parish is composed of.
e.g. - Italian Catholic functions will have chicken, meatballs and pasta of some kind, sausage and peppers. Mountains of cookies.

But then I got to the part at the end, where they were riding the train back down to civilization, and the surgeon with them was constantly cutting bits off their toes and fingers as their flesh mortified due to their all having experienced terrible frostbite, and I was just like...why?

BTW, let's all try to avoid using the creepazoids' "pronoun of choice" in comments here. Call "Rain Dove" "she", and you are validating, in a small way, its delusion.

Made me think of the Viagra ad--- no, I think it's Cialis.
Whatever. The one with the two tubs out in the middle of nowhere.

I'm not saying that a guy wouldn't deserve a whole lot of credit for the effort of hauling tubs out to a scenic site.
But .... where's the plumbing? How do you get water in the tubs?
I figure there's no water in 'em.

And then I ask what this means. Are we expected automatically to strip just because we see a tub, even an empty tub?
Is this a common reaction to tub sightings?
How come I never see naked people in Lowe's?

Eh. I'll take the sensible guy with the folding chairs.

We have Aylmer soups up here in Canada. Been around for many, many years. And most of the big supermarkets have no-name soups. And the types of soups that get used as recipe ingredients are usually found in no-name.

Money is fungible. Which is why it is money. I don't care if the drug dealer bought the Range Rover with money he earned painting an oprhanage for 50% under the going rate. He was able to do that because the money he made peddling dope bought his house, food, and health care.

194 A number of you know this story, so I'll be brief.

Many, many weeks ago, a much-loved friend decided to end her life.

Everyone who knew her was shocked. I knew of her medical issues, but I also knew of her determination to "power through this" which I told her I would do what I could to help. I held her hand and told her I would do what I could and she could count on me.

After the happening happened, I commented here, where I whined and mewled and wheened about how I couldn't understand it, etc etc etc. I'm sure most of you will remember about how tediously tedious I was.

At the time, I could not understand the circumstances which would lead one to load a gun, press the gun against one's temple, and pull the trigger. I mean, the circumstances which said, "This is the right thing to do, this is the only solution, this is what you should do, so stop hesitating and act."

Well.

Time solves all mysteries.

After a number of events since then, I really do see circumstances whereby one feels that only a bullet can put things in order. Where one sees nothing but deterioration, descent, diminishing returns, and a certainty that there is no escape, no future, no horizon, no out, and only that gun can make it an escape.

And before anyone says anything, no, I am not going to commit suicide anytime soon.
I just have an understanding of those who do.
Sorry for being a bummer, MisHum. I promised to be less of a bummer, but...things. And stuff. Lots of stuff.

All I can say is that you did all you could. She made her choice. Not an easy one. Pain, confusion and the prospect of decline into a bitter end with no way out, seemingly, can make this an honest choice. Talk to us here. Don't go down that path. It's hard to resist as it often seems like the best, easiest choice. The loss to others who care about you, as you care about her leaves damage and destruction in the wake of that choice.
Personal experience, I've been on both sides of this issue and in no way do I want to go back to that. Hang on my friend. The Horde abides.

222 ...Why is that the civil forfeiture case that makes it to the SC? That dope pusher was convicted. Confiscating proceeds from his drug dealing is not a fine.

If they arrested him and decided not to prosecute, then he would have a case IMO. That's not the case here.
Posted by: Lancelot Link Secret Agent Chimp at November 28, 2018 10:32 PM (2DOZq)

Largest fine on the books is $10,000
Car value $40,000

Plus it appears that drug proceeds weren't use to purchase the car, just to deliver the product.

I think most civil forfeitures are legalized theft, and this is one of those.

No apologies needed, BC. We're here for you whenever you need to vent. I had an uncle who took his life (although he used the running-car-engine-in-closed-garage method rather than a gun) to escape 1) the endgame symptoms of Parkinson's; 2) his wife (and yeah, she would have driven a Roman centurion to fall on his sword too). So I learned then how bad it can get, "where one sees nothing but deterioration, descent, diminishing returns, and a certainty that there is no escape, no future, no horizon, no out."

I second this.

Yes, I can understand where suicide seems like the best option. At the moment I have cancer, but I am nowhere near that point. Ironically, when I was younger and healthier there was a time when I actually considered it, but fortunately it passed.

FWIW, I'm with you on that. If the penalty is house arrest and probation and a fine of one 2012 Land Rover, then put that in the damn sentencing guidelines. This is the kind of thing that gets people four thousand dollars of impound fees on a $1500 car for parking tickets in places like Chicago. It's a damn racket.

253 those who push the Trans agenda are allowed to lie, and if you push back against them with the truth, you eventually find you have no place on Twitter.

One of the things that will now get you banned from Twitter is "dead naming" - giving the original name of someone who has decided that they are now of the opposite sex and has changed their name.

A prominent economist, Deidre McCloskey, was born Donald McCloskey. Deidre has a problem, however: "she" would like to still get credit for all the academic papers "she" wrote before "she" changed her name.

Therefore, "her" Wikipedia entry mentions that "her" original name was Donald (I assume that you will be banned from Twitter if you tweet out that part of "her" Wikipedia entry.)

But do you get banned from Twitter if you tweet out a reference to one of Donald McCloskey's many published papers, since that is "dead naming" Deidre?

Or is "dead naming" OK if the subject approves?

No, they are not as prevalent. At a Catholic function you get whatever ethnic group offerings the majority of the Parish is composed of.
e.g. - Italian Catholic functions will have chicken, meatballs and pasta of some kind, sausage and peppers. Mountains of cookies.

Romanian Catholic it would be different. Bohunks, Poles, African, Mexican all different still.

In no case would one find a jello dish with carrots, lettuce, or white grapes in it. Yuck.

And frankly, if you're too poor to have your own place as a grown ass man, then you wouldn't have been able to buy that computer without benefit of living at home, so I can seethe point even after a certain age.

She missed the fact that in LOTR, the Orcs are portrayed by Tolkien as once having been Men, or Elves perhaps, that have been bent and twisted to Sauron's will. Tolkien was pretty consistent in saying that Sauron had no power to create living beings, but he could pervert and debase them.

Similarly, Gollum was once an innocent being, possibly even himself a Hobbit, but perverted and debased by the Ring, and its association with Sauron.

Well, Tolkien was old school, so it is important to remember it in that context. I always took it to be that Gollum chose to murder his friend and steal the ring. The Ring has no power over that which does not reside already within the soul of those it affects. Tom Bombadil, Faramir, Samwise are all examples whose duty to something greater or humility (or in Bombadil's case lack of desire) gave the ring less handle on their psyches.

It is a magnifying glass. Did it make Gollum worse? Yes. However, he took that first step.

IIRC, Gollum was in possession of the Ring for a long time, having robbed it from the corpse of a Numenorian (?) hero who was killed upon a battlefield. He did not know its significance at the time he stole it, I don't think.

I took my Grandma and we both loved it. I had no IDEA she could cuss in Italian -- she was laughing and repeating a bunch of the stuff in the movie -- and she told me she could cuss in Yiddish and German, too.

Darn movie was so good I'll watch the Oscars just to watch it sweep everything. The music was great, the cars, the wops, everything.

Isildur cut the Ring off the finger of Sauron after Sauron had slain Elendil ( his father) with the shards of Elendil's sword. Isildur took the ring, even though Elrond at the time urged him to cast it into Mount Doom.

Isildur's party was slain by Orcs when they were riding north from Gondor (Anarion's son would be king of Gondor). Isildur put on the Ring to disappear and dove into the Anduin River. The ring came off and sank to the bottom of the river, and Isildur was slain by Orc arrows.
The Orcs were Elves that were captured and tortured by Morgoth, and Sauron was his leiutenant. They were perverted into the form of Orcs.

Yes.

The ring was actually kind of a stupid idea on Sauron's part. For him, it was a tool to focus and use his own power, but he poured too much of himself into it. By making it, he sowed the seeds of his own destruction.

And it takes many forms. I finally had to admit to myself, and confront, the fact that I've been effectively committing slow-motion suicide for a very long time, by not taking proper care of myself. After dad passed I finally found myself in a position where nobody I really cared about was there to be impacted, and...well, it went into higher gear. I understand now it culminated in my hospitalization last year...I walked back from the edge then, but didn't really admit where I was until this summer.

This Hess had to write pretty fast. The Poles hanged his wretched ass in 1947.

I was honored to stand under the gibbet where Hess met his maker. It's at Auschwitz I just a few hundred yards from the villa where he and his lovely family lived. Right next to the prototype gas chamber where the Nazis tested extermination techniques that were later used on a large scale at Auschwitz-Birkenau, about a mile away.

Taken prisoner by the British, he was handed over to the Poles, tried, sentenced to death, and taken back to Auschwitz and there hanged. During the period between his trial and his execution, he was ordered to write his autobiography.

If you're forced to write your autobiography, is it really an autobiography? Or is it more like a self-confession beaten out of you and used at a show trial? Or maybe Samuel Johnson was right:

Depend upon it, sir, when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.

Page bought a large mansion estate once owned by Crowley. I'm a bit ambivalent about this kind of thing. I don't think it is setting a good example, particularly for young people. As far as demons and possession and that sort of thing, while I am a decided believer in science, it just seems like a really bad idea to try and summon up demons or seance and ouji boards and the like.

483 Well, another frustrating day in the never-ending Ford Follies. Put it back on the hoist, drained the pan, removed the valve body, and disassembled same. Nada. Removed every spring, every valve, every little plug. All is good. No stuck valves, no broken springs. It all looks new, save for a little scoring on the plunger of the main pressure regulator valve. I think that's normal, as those things move a lot, and fast. Very unlikely that it could be the cause of it engaging two gears at once.

Will have a real close look at the shift solenoids tomorrow. If shift solenoid #2 is faulty, that could cause the direct clutch to stay applied when it wasn't supposed to be. Now I did check those solenoids when I first tore into the SOB, but maybe I wasn't looking for the right sort of fault.

Heh. The transmission is, to all intents and purposes, rebuilt, by me. There is just one nagging problem. The direct drive clutch seems to stay applied all the time, and it should only apply in third and fourth gears (direct, and overdrive). I don't think it's physically locked. I put it together with nearly all new parts, and the hub and drum could be turned independently by hand. Somehow it's getting energized by hydraulic pressure when it shouldn't be.

Well, the idea is that these were Elves or Men, captured by Melkor/Morgoth (big Kahuna evil being- Lucifer) and then twisted by his power into feeble shadows of the creations of Illuvatar (God.) His point being that Evil cannot create, it can only corrupt what is created by God.

Well sure. In fact substitute "always" for "usually". And that's just it, I just choose not to associate myself, insofar as possible, with bad stuff. And it ain't easy these days. Whether it's Cambell's soup, or devil worshippers. Maybe I'm getting old. Pagey was a great guitarist back in the day, and wrote/arranged some great tunes. As I get older though I start to look at people's philosophy and those kinds of things start to impact my judgment of whether I want them around, so to speak. In a similar vein I'll never forget some miscreant professional sports celebrity claiming "I'm not a role model".

The hell you're not, every kid on the planet looks up to you, and wants to be just like you. You're a role model whether you like it or not. Our "betters" used to know this. Poor people tried to emulate the well to do, now the celebrities act like bums. Yeesh.

Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at November 29, 2018 12:39 AM (aKsyK)

See, here's the thing. This is why I keep it.

A lot of it is whining and excuse making. Not just the 'I was only following orders' one. He complains about the unreasonable demands being put on him and how few resources he was given; I don't have it with me, but IIRC at one point he says he had to sneak over to another camp site and steal rolls of barbed wire, because he was hopelessly undersupplied.

He was a follower, in every sense. His hero worship of Himmler comes through loud and clear; I don't think he ever even talks about Hitler, at all. He makes noises about how now he sees they were doing the wrong thing, but his noises reek of insincerity. He was a cog, a machine part, a bureaucratic drone taken to its logical conclusion.

And this is the most (to me, anyway) frightening and enraging thing about him. He didn't hate the Jews, not really. He was Implementing Policy. He built and engine that killed one million innocent people and he couldn't even be bothered to dislike them. They were just... Stuff, Things, the objects of Policy that the Reichsfuhrer-SS had ordered to be Implemented.

I'm probably conveying this very badly, but does that make sense? The impersonalization-- if that's even a word-- of an unfeeling, inhuman, totalitarian State breeds these mindsets, where cops refer to people as 'civilians', and the drones who drive Policy see the regular people as so much stuff, to be pushed around and have Policies Implemented on them.

Posted by: Vanya at November 29, 2018 01:27 AM (7PLM4)

525 "Amazon with patient records"? Seems weird to you because you are closely following politics rather than computers.

Amazon are pioneers in the area of "Big Data" processing. They are already using it on their customer data to find ways to make their commerce business more profitable.

In this case they are using their Big Data processing systems to try to get into a new line of business. Patient data is strictly legally controlled (look up HIPPA) so Amazon can't tie patient data to the rest of their data.

Now, if Amazon starts lobbying Congress to get rid of HIPPA and make it legal to unify all the data they have about people, that would be worrying.

Note that Amazon has a really giant fleet of servers running "cloud" software. There are very large customers who use Amazon servers instead of buying their own servers. Amazon originally set up those servers for its own business purposes, but made a smart decision to set up a cloud rental business and that business is making a lot of money for them.

"The Banality of Evil" - we've seen too many bad movies. The bad guys are always easily identifiable. Doesn't work that way in real life. Evil people dress nice, look nice, talk well, can even be charming. This is the problem. They tell people what they want to hear.

At the risk of sounding apologetic, put yourself in the context of the times. The commies, nazies, fascists, authoritarians, et al, they would all throw you in a camp or another for badthink. Talking bad about certain people or government. You had to join the party for all practical purposes. They controlled everything. What do you do?

Or let's say you have a pension, or hope to have one when you retire. How is that so different than what we've seen with certain law enforcement agencies in highly political environments? At the local level it must be Bullshit. Their hands are tied, the mayor or whoever will throw them under the bus at the earliest opportunity if something bad happens. "Just following orders" starts to sound pretty good. People can rationalize anything. I'm not arguing we owe "the Germans" an apology, I'm saying it's way more complicated than is ordinarily envisioned. And the same shit is happening here, and around the world. Don't expect the cops or anybody else to provide help in a crisis is what I'm getting at.

This is an interesting point, and brings up another question: if many of those involved in the Final solution felt no large amount of personal hatred towards the Jews, does that not make them MORE evil?

To cross the streams here, there is an interesting quote from Thomas Shippey (biographer of JRR Tolkien) in which he is talking about what he sees as Tolkien's vision of evil: (I am paraphrasing from memory here)

"The History of evil in the 20th century is oddly impersonal. It is almost like no one really WANTS to do it. So you have most evil being carried out by bureaucrats."

He was making a point that the ring wraiths are Tolkien's perception of bureaucratic evil. They are empty vessels, merely carrying out the will of another- and that those who do these deeds are wraiths, in that sense (empty, twisted things.)

No, the bureacratic state provides the framework, the infrastructure, the machine, that allows people to act with impunity. Sure it's impersonal,, but they enjoy it. They have permission, even a duty as it were. Decent, peaceable people don't really need too much of laws or government or supervision. Have you ever heard someone confess to you that if it were proven somehow there was no God, they would rape and pillage and steal? I have, and it made no sense to me. Without law enforcement, apparently a fair number of folks will do the same. Thin veneer of civilization.

Biggest mistake in my life over the years was believing most people I met thought like I do. Maybe a "high trust" society was mostly intact at some point in my life, but I doubt it.

This is a good point. I have never understood that either.

Hmmm, I guess the question is then, are bureaucratic systems more predisposed to barbarity, perversely.

I would have to say yes.

It seems to me that the greater number of people actually serves to lower the groups inhibitions and mores. Shared or vacated responsibility.

Add to this a designated hate object and an amoral system which allows people to engage their darker side, and you are off to the races.

One of the arguments/discussions I have had with my best friend over the course of 20 years was whether the Germans were actually singularly evil (we both agree that they were not- look at the Soviets, Chinese, Cambodians, etc, etc) or the system, and the presence of a designated hate object allowed those people who are always with us who have cruel and barbaric natures to the forefront and gave them a place to practice their particular vices with the blessings of the State.

I have not. I should look that up.

As far as Just Following Orders and all that... I don't really have an answer. It's very easy for us to sit here and say, well, they should have done this, or that, or this other thing. I'm sure most (or all) of us think they should have and wish that they had.

This is NOT making excuses for the SS or anyone, here. They literally murdered millions of people; you don't get to say "My bad" and walk away from that.

Maybe that's the moral. The crowd develops momentum, but responsibility for what it does falls on each member who participates? The guy up front with the megaphone who's whipping them up bears responsibility, obviously, but so does each person who follows?

But Hoess doesn't get even that excuse. He got a job running concentration camps because he'd been in prison (Nazi logic: We need someone who knows about prisons. Ask for ex-cons!). He spent time in prison because he participated in a political murder for the Nazis back in the 20s. He wasn't being swept along by the tide, he was a believer.

This is also true. Totalitarians attract the kind of people who want to be totalitarians. Solzhenitsyn made the point in The Gulag Archipelago that camp guards tended to be incredibly vicious, and for a good reason-- Almost any normal Russian with an even slightly intact moral compass wanted nothing to do with being a Gulag guard. So their recruits came from the segment of humanity that liked beating and torturing and shooting people, with predictable results.

The last tranny I had rebuilt by a very experienced rebuilder didn't work the first time. He told that for some models, you have to refrigerate the core overnight to get it past some seals without pinching the rubber. Increases the clearances.

That was an '87; I'm sure they are a lot more complicated now with chip logic involved.

557 "...camp guards tended to be incredibly vicious, and for a good reason-- Almost any normal Russian with an even slightly intact moral compass wanted nothing to do with being a Gulag guard."

That's obviously false. People would love to be a camp guard and do a good job, treat people with respect and handling problems with justice.

Any number of Christians, at least, would take the job.

But if you were one good guard among many bad ones, the bad ones would kill you, just because you make them look bad.

There are bad guards because their bosses are bad, and so on up the line.

And any number of good people would want to be the bosses, hoping to do a good job.

The fact that some places this happens and some places it doesn't tells me that it's like IQ: there really is a genetic component.

Research has already shown genes have a giant effect on behavior. How can genes as an explanation not be the number one explanation?

It is important that each discussion should consider both sides equally. Each argument should be firm, but not made so artificially, so it yields to the reasonable pressure of valid counterarguments.

The arguments should be supported in a framework of logic that accents their good qualities and minimizes the areas where they might be lacking; in this way, we arrive at a conclusion that is both intellectually and aesthetically pleasing.

565 Wow, Jules had this show on called simply "Watergate". Very interesting, I recall this all going down, but I was only 18 at the time.

What strikes me is how inured to govt/political malfeasance we are today. What Hillary and the DNC did in the 2016 election is MUCH more than what Nixon did in trying cover up a "third rate burglary" in the 72 election.

There is a striking contrast between the honesty of Nixon's underlings in testimony and the lying loyalty of the Dems in the 2016 election, really a shocking contrast.

Also of note at my age now is how young some of these participants were. Quite shocking to me as Howard Baker, Wm Ruckelshaus, John Dean and others are way younger than I am now. Life is weird.

571 > Since it made it to SCOTUS, my guess is that they couldn't prove that he used funds from drug dealing to purchase the car.

In fact it seems clear that he did not. The article says that he got a $72,000 life insurance payout from his father's death and bought the car with some of it.

Unfortunately he spent the rest on drugs, then apparently started selling them to support his habit when the rest of the money ran out.

Now, one could certainly argue that the fine for selling heroin should be higher than it is, but it seems to me that IF the maximum fine is only $10,000 then it's not any kind of justice to take a car that is worth a lot more than that.

Um, it's 32 degrees for a high outside. It gets down to 9 degrees at night. Go to the store. Purchase 2 big coolers. Load up your food. Put them in your car to keep critters from getting into it at night.

We have much social credit scoring already. I do not even believe in marriage licenses or state control marriage yet I not only have to believe but also CARE about socalled gay marriage. Gay marriage is like sport car makers seller automatic manuals. It is an automatic, not a manual.

Now I must believe a person sex identification is a social construct that can be changed. In the next 5 years you will see a medical study on a new drug for womyn that will be attacked (or lauded) because they accepted chicks with dick.s Scientifically it will be a worthless study but the social value will be paraded through the streets.

They failed to mention a 21% VAT, a premium location fee because airport or something of around 70 Euros and exchange rate about 3% above the official rate. All buried in the contract fine print no doubt.


I'm used to this BS from car rental agencies in the US, which I know how to deal with to get the price quoted but this is first time renting overseas. This is a whole new level of screw a customer because you will almost surely never see him again and he is now far away. I may tell my credit card company to not make payment for a month or two just to screw with them.
