ONT: Keepin' The Disgust Fresh Edition

I usually try to mix things up on my ONTs, a little news, a little funny, a little politics, a little pathos; but this means that sometimes I have negative stories that don't get used right away, and they just sit in my “ONT stuff” tabs. Well, tonight I'm cleaning up the tabs, so grab a big cup of water and strap in for the long haul. Here, I've got just the thing:

Why We're Here

We Teach Nothing, We Know Nothing—and That Could Cost the United States Everything

At least when I went to school I got an education. Yes, it may have been slanted left, but it was pretty easy to find out actual facts (which inevitably contradicted the slant) and make up my own mind. No longer.

History1.jpg

We can see this everywhere.

Steve Kerr Belongs in the Moron Hall of Fame

We've all seen the famous picture of the man standing down the line of tanks in Tienanmen Square. As awe-inspiring as than man's courage is, I like this suggestion I saw on twitter recently:


Something to think about.

Everything You Think You Know Is A Lie

Not everything, of course, but one can't deny that many of the institutions of our country actively work to enforce a narrative rather than having a commitment to truth.

Forget Me Not: The Persistent Myth of Repressed Memories

Well, you say, that's just one example, and it's a profession dealing with potentially damaged individuals already. First of all, try telling that to people who spent decades in jail for “satanic child abuse”. Second, how often do you see the following mentioned?


Abortion tied to sharp decline in women's mental health


Now, to be fair, that's CBS news, but how often do you see this covered? We on the pro-life side tend to focus on the murder of the child, which is the most important issue here, of course, but in doing so we cede the “women's health” argument to the opposition.

For the study, researchers analyzed data on 877,000 women, including 164,000 who had an abortion. They found women who had an abortion experienced an 81 percent increased risk for mental problems.
Women who had an abortion were 34 percent more likely to develop an anxiety disorder, 37 percent more likely to experience depression, 110 percent more likely to abuse alcohol, 155 percent more likely to commit suicide, and 220 percent more likely to use marijuana.
Nearly 10 percent of the problems could be attributed to abortion, the authors concluded.


Maybe we shouldn't. If those numbers don't scare the crap out of you, you're not paying attention. Why? Money and politics.

ONT Halftime Break



Subsidy 2: Electric Boogaloo

Old Tesla models spontaneously stop working


I'm not a big fan of electric cars. Oh, I think the constant acceleration aspect of them is very nice indeed, and there may be a place for them, but if they're the car of the future, then they should earn that title by offering a product that is superior to the competition, one that has earned its stripes in the marketplace. How many electric or hybrid cars do you think would be on the roads if the government wasn't taking our money and using it to bribe other people to buy them? A lot fewer, I'm sure. Look, I've heard that Teslas are nice cars. I know a guy who has one and he loves it. But if they're such great cars, they shouldn't need a big old money transfer to succeed, should they?

Politics


Kurt Eichenwald Posts 1983 Image of Child Earthquake Victims to Bash Trump Over Syria Pullout

Just like ABC using edited footage from the Knob Creek Machine Gun Shoot “accidentally”.

Of course, every president inherits problems from their predecessors.


How Obama’s team set up Trump’s Syrian dilemma


Here's an interesting thread about Trump's Syrian strategy. I don't know if this is true, but I would rate it plausible:



Click on the tweet to read the entire thread.

Ignorance Is Not Bliss


Well, it probably is for the ignorant. The rest of us? Not so much. Like this girl:

Kansas 13-year-old girl who pointed finger gun at classmates charged with a felony

Or this woman:

Mum charged with murder ‘for shooting dead boy, 18, who raped her six-year-old daughter’

Assuming that he really did rape the little girl, I'm having trouble caring.


The Fallout

Cast off: how knitters turned nasty

And here it is all working together in the real world, destroying a community of mostly artistic people who generally have very little interest in politics, or at least have had little interest in politics in their hobby.

And to top it all off, my wife just measured and my 14 YO is now 1/2" taller than me.

Hard to tell which way the arrow of causality is on this one. Seems like all that stuff would make you more likely to have an abortion.



One thing is sure, though-- having the abortion doesn't make these things LESS likely. It's not solving these people's problems.

Particularly when we don't have a hot war going, ranks above LtC get mostly filled (there are exceptions) by people with good political instincts. Sometimes we get lucky and they're also good military leaders. Sometimes we don't and they spend their time lining up post-retirement jobs.

102 Well, that one with the strategy matches what I wrote in one of last night's threads. We went in to squish ISIS. ISIS is toast. So why are we sticking around in Syria? Is there a new mission? If so, what? Is it to carve the country up? Maintain the status quo? Support the Assad regime? Install a new regime?


And if there is a new mission, shouldn't we debate it before deciding it? When has this debate been held? If not, when will it be held? If we shouldn't debate it, doesn't that just default to the Pentagon to do what it thinks it needs to do to protect the forces it has in the area? Why is letting the DoD run foreign policy in this area without any check from the American public a good idea?


Unless and until a debate is held on what we should do next since we have secured our stated objectives, I think withdrawing to a "don't make me come back here, and yes I am close enough to do so" position sounds like a very good plan.

165 The effect that abortions have on a woman's mental health does come up from time to time. You'll sometimes see stories related by women who've had an abortion and now regretted it due to issues such as depression.

The difficulty for the pro-life side is that such stories are nowhere near common enough. Not many women who've had abortions talk about those abortions, or the long-term effects that it may have had on them. And you have plenty of pro-choice women who talk about how glad they were that they had their abortions.

The end result is that the pro-abortion side is able to effectively cancel out the stories of the women who warn about the mental effects of abortion on the woman. And those who might actually be influenced by such arguments are left with the impression that either those women who claim depression after an abortion are either anti-abortion zealot liars, or such a small percentage of women that there's no real danger of it happening to the average woman who undergoes the procedure.

173 Sorry, Dave, the article you cited from Psychology Today is written by a quack who is making a huge mistake of conflating two very different things.

Here's the truth: Recovered memory, as practiced in the 90s, was intrusive and represented a zealous bias on the part of so called therapists/child services workers who had a particular axe to grind.

It was an abusive practice that has been exposed as fraudulent, NOT because repressed memories aren't real, but because the process by which past trauma is revealed MUST be as free from the bias of the therapist as possible, PRECISELY because memories are so fragile and easily manipulated.

For this clown to suggest that humans don't suppress memories is like saying because some women falsely accuse men of rapes, that must me rape is a myth.

Sorry, he's just flat out wrong, and his meandering article sounds more like the sour musings of a psychologist who really doesn't have a clue how the human mind works.

It's sort of the other way around. He was never going to give the Democrats anything of consequence without getting huge things for America. They knew it and that's why they went adversarial. If they had an inkling they could extract an agenda out of him, they would have owned him like they own every other spineless lefty stooge with an R after their name.

DJT saw what was happening to the country with too much clear vision to let the Left continue their long march. What prominent Republican ever (for example) was busy calling out John Roberts, and Bush's bad decision on him? Not a one.

I offered up earlier that Trump should get a duplicate account at GAB, or another competitor to Twitter, and post everything to both.

People could compare the two and immediately find out when Trump is being censored.

It would cost essentially nothing, and would be effective at shining the light of Twitter censorship.

I commented that he worked for a wealthy private college ($450 million endowment), which paid nothing in taxes at all. I noted that if we started taxing tuition, and if the college started paying property taxes on the hundreds of acres of prime real estate that it sat on, that the city of Portland would have lots more money to spend on good things.

Trump gets it. He says in his rallies that people like Schiff and Brennan tell horrible lies at the microphones with all kinds of indignation... and then they go back to a room together and close the door and laugh their heads off.

That's what the left has *always* done to us. And the idea of it is foreign. Alot of people on our side STILL don't get it. Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, Cummings, these "reporters"... most of them think this shit is hilarious. I'm not saying they're happy about their situation but trust me, they loved watching Kavanaugh squirm. All those grandstanding Senators? They weren't mad about injustice. They were acting. They thought ruining an innocent man's life was *fucking hysterical*. I think this sort of evil is difficult for many on our side to fathom.

Equally they love their lies about Trump. They don't do it out of desperation. They do it for fun.

255 "Teaching to the test" is bullshit spewed out by the teachers unions as an excuse for why students do poorly on standardized tests. If the kids get godawful scores, the teachers will claim, "We didn't teach to the test." When the kids still get godawful scores, the teachers will say, "Um. Er. Look! Squirrels! Ahem ... We refuse to teach to the test."


The companies that produced standardized tests don't exactly have steel spines. ETS, the biggest of them all, has changed the SAT questions how many times in recent decades, yet the scores still drop.


If the militants in the teachers unions were really concerned about the tests not being comparable to the material taught in the classroom, they could get the test questions changed in a nanosecond. But they'd never do that because it would ruin their primary excuse for bad scores and ignorant students.

Just like from 2011-2016 the most important thing was the war between whites and blacks. Remember? Trayvon? Michael whoever the fuck?Then suddenly... without any real warning... we were in a gender war from the "organic" metoo movement, at the EXACT time Hillary was scheduled to assume her throne. Wow! What an amazing coincidence! It wasn't at all supposed to look like Hillary had "changed" the world and any man who complained about their instant second class status was a raping sexist mysoginist president-hating domestic terrorist. Not at all!

This is not to say that bearing a child is a walk in the park, nor even that it cannot be lethal itself. But abortion leaves scars. There is no real question of that.

331 "Does having an abortion make you more likely to abuse drugs and alcohol, or does abusing drugs and alcohol make more likely to have an unwanted pregnancy for which you have an abortion?"

Both. Years ago I interviewed, for a Catholic newspaper, a Franciscan priest who had been involved in 12 Step program addiction counseling. He said that a very large percentage of women he had counseled had had abortions, often more than one because they got caught in a vicious circle of post abortion depression, drug/alcohol abuse, promiscuity, unwanted pregnancy, abortion, more depression, etc, etc.

Why?

He just told the truth. A deal is a quid pro quo--except when Obama was bargaining for a pantsing to go with the pallets of cash sent to Iran for nothing.

He even specifically said that he was *not* talking about Biden. Ukraine is a corrupt country. Before Biden was looking into it they stuck 1.8 billion dollars of aid into the bank of an oligarch and it vanished.

7. Position and manner of display
(m) ... The flag shall be flown at half-staff ... on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress.

335 Re regretting abortion:

It was a very long time ago... 1986... but at one time I was in a self-esteem group, and one of the women was absolutely wracked with guilt from having an abortion.

Unfortunately I have no idea what happened to her since then. I would hope she's found God by now.

A few tweets down from that main tweet, someone posted a link to a gallery of the photos at AllThatsInteresting.com, plus a storyline:

Which I am in the process of reading and viewing. The 'official' number of deaths is 241; the reality, much worse. I imagine the version our press put out to the US was written up by a Fusion GPS-like hired gun whitewasher, and hand fed to a few reporters that had to do nothing more than add their byline, and, viola, 'news'.

370 Mountains and campfires, Elk bugling, killer sunsets, stars like you wouldn't believe ... Very cool, love thst stuff.

Just smoky, stinky pop-sparks all over pine and larch and the like. Not good for roasting meats. There is nothing like a good bed of hardwood coals.[\i]

Then I heard that they fired the two guys doing the livestream (who had nothing to do with the statement, and had no way of knowing about it).

Players are not amused, and there's a movement to turn Blizzard characters (starting with Mei, from Overwatch, who -as the name suggests - is Chinese) into symbols of the Hong Kong protest movement in order to get those characters (and the linked games) banned in China.

Pro sports are there for entertainment, and people pay good money to get away from the problems and issues they face during the week.

410 How Many Night Caps is Too Many?

A Short Story By Bitter Clinger

Once there was a man of 29 years or so of age who, for lack of marketable skills and intelligence, became a bartender and after many years began to teach others to bartend.

One night, while teaching others to bartend, a hot blonde with blue eyes and large knockers came to learn to bartend from the man. She was younger and laughed at all the man's jokes while he taught and bent over a lot in yoga pants around the man which caused his trousers to fit more snuggly.

The man thought to himself "After a long 29 years, I owe it to myself to see if the hot blonde would like to have some drinks." And so after the other trainees left, the man said to the hot blonde with the blue eyes in the yoga pants that made trousers snug, "Say, would you care for a nightcap?"

To his surprise she said that she would, in fact, enjoy a nightcap. Being a gracious host, the man offered his large knockered guest her choice of spirits. The man noted that there was beer available as well as a large selection of liquor, finally noting that he even had wine if she preferred. At this point the large knockered yoga pants wearer informed the man that she had bought a box of wine earlier in the day and had consumed the entire box since noon that day.

This warmed the man's heart, because he, too, had been known to consume large quantities of alcohol and he thought highly of her knowing that she was hot, an alcoholic and had low standards on alcohol. "Perhaps she might have low standards when it comes to men too," he thought.

The man told the trouser-tightening blonde that he was impressed, at which point she noted that she was a first generation American, whose parents have moved here from Russia. This excited the man, as he knew the Russians had help elect Donald Trump and were known to be generous with their lady skills.

Armed with this knowledge, the man winked and said "Howsabout some vodka?" and produced a full liter of Russian Standard Platinum from the freezer and two shot glasses and the two set about to empty the bottle.

As time went by, the two talked about a great many things, from the hatred of social justice warriors, to their enjoyment of President Trump. They also discussed firearms and listened to heavy metal. The man was a skilled conversationalist and worked a mention of the Russian babe's large, firm breasts into each subject.

The blonde showed the man her large breasts and allowed the man to grab them and enjoy their shapely nature. The bottle of vodka soon emptied and the sun had come up and the man exchanged phone numbers with the large breasted, blonde blue-eyed Russian babe with the trouser tightening yoga pants and wished her well as well as arranged anther drinking date.

Now the man finally realized that it was already 7 am and he had an business appointment at 8:00 am with a client and knew he would have no time to go home. "Aha" thought the man, remembering he had a change of clothes in his truck as well as a stick of deodorant. As the man staggered out the door, he smiled broadly, thinking of the large breasts he had touched, but as he approached his truck, he staggered and tripped falling face first into a freshly shorn hedgerow, allowing a sharp branch to whack the man directly in the eyeball making him think of the scene in A Christmas Story in which Ralphie shot his eye out.

The man clutched his eye, stringing together new combinations of obscenities. But he had to soldier on or risk being fired for not meeting with the client. As so the man, with a large black eye, and a blood red eyeball, reeking of vodka with unkempt hair proceeded to wash his crotch with a bar towel and water from the bathroom sink, apply deodorant to his armpits and feet bottoms (for he knew they reeked as well), gargled with a shot of Rumple Minze peppermint schnapps to make his breath minty, changed clothes and sprayed himself with Febreeze Air Freshener.

The man met with the client, who stared strangely at him asking if his eye was okay. He said it was fine, although in truth it felt like some had stabbed him in they eye with a sharp stick, because basically he had stabbed himself in the eye with a sharp stick. When the client asked what happened the man said "I had a nightcap" and chuckled. The client laughed in said "It looks like you had too many night caps" and they both laughed and the man shook the client down for a $1200 job and they shook hands and parted ways.

Eventually, one-eyed, reeking of ball sweat and air freshener, and now both sleep deprived and hung over, the man went to a walk in clinic and found out he had a corneal abrasion. The man thought this was not good, but the doctor said it would heal and the man got to wear a cool eye-patch and look like a pirate for the next three days.

Then he went home, ate Doritos and Ibuprofen, and slept soundly dreaming of large Russian boobs.

Fin.

Musk is against these subsidies because they help his competitors considerably more than they help him.

423 Tesla is trying to make a new car company, using a new technology. Both things are hard; doing both together is really hard.

Tesla makes money on every car they sell. But they are spending crazy money on building more factories, building out their Supercharger network, R&D on new products (Tesla Semi, Tesla pickup truck, new Tesla Roadster).

Tesla's cars do win on merit. I'd rather have a Model 3 than a BMW 3-series. And I think Tesla is over the hump where it really needs government money to survive.

In my opinion, buying Tesla stock now is like buying Amazon stock 10 years ago. I think they are going to be huge. I'll come back here in 10 years and we can see how my prediction turns out.

P.S. The flash memory issue really is a dumb mistake. An obvious solution would have been to put the logs on an SD card... it's more expensive to solder a socket for an SD card and then stick a card in the socket, but then the repair becomes trivial. Tesla says they have updated the firmware in the cars to write less to the logs and make this problem not happen as fast.

But Tesla has done a lot more stuff right than wrong.

-------------------

These days the game winning stuff typically isn't locked behind a paywall. But the DLCs are catching a lot of flak from players everywhere. The big thing, though, is microtransactions. Pay a few bucks, and unlock some virtual crates with randomized customization options in them. In and of themselves, not a problem.

The problem is that they're essentially a form of gambling, targeted at product often used by kids, and cause problems for people with poor impulse control - like a lot of kids.

Sorry, that's baloney. Subsidies per Tesla run $10,000+. They most certainly are an 'outlier'.

The quarterly subsidies amount to over $700 million. Tesla is not in the automobile business, they are in the subsidy business.

Not here in Alaska, they don't.

That may have something to do with it being legal to carry a gun, openly or concealed, with no permit of any kind. An old definition of "Alaska liberal" is "someone who doesn't own caliber larger than .357 Magnum".

That's changed to some degree (too many carpetbaggers here nowadays), but it's still largely true. After the 7.1 last fall, we had zero looting. None.

Lead-acid batteries are nearly 100% recycled. I don't see why lithium-ion batteries could not be recycled, too. All batteries contain valuable metals, and typically in greater concentration than the ores of said metals. I think batteries, both disposable, and rechargeable, present an economic case that favors recycling.

My female boss flounced today. Ran off from the office in a gale of tears, with all of her things in tow.

This was over basically nothing (a minor dispute with another coworker).

I'm not this guy's biggest fan. He's kind of a dick. But I'd never freak out about his dickishness. He's just the kind of guy you have to work around.

She's got a great life. Two great kids, a hardworking husband who sees to her needs, etc. She doesn't even need the job.

But she flounces off in a gale of tears.

Me... I need my job. I'm in a tough spot. I need the money, but it's the least of my worries. I work hard at the job (I just now finished for the day), but when I get home I'm just glad it's over.

Until recently, I haven't cried in recent memory. Maybe ten, fifteen years. But now that I do feel the need, I go behind the generator where nobody can hear or see me and get it out.

Then I smoke a cigarette and wipe it off and get back to work.

But the thing about Musk opposing tax credits is pure fantasy; his gravy train is about to expire so gee let's not give them to any competitors is more like it. And those weren't random people off the streets lobbying CA to pass a state funded tax credit either.

That subsidy only ended in the last year. The question is, would Tesla exist in the absence of those subsidies? In Denmark, Tesla sale dropped by 94% when subsidies were dropped.

Iirc, the same thing happened in Hong Kong when the subsidies ran out.

I don't have a problem with electric cars, I merely want them to succeed in the market on their own merits. Not on my forced wallet assistance program.

481 >>Lead-acid batteries are nearly 100% recycled. I don't see why lithium-ion batteries could not be recycled, too. All batteries contain valuable metals, and typically in greater concentration than the ores of said metals. I think batteries, both disposable, and rechargeable, present an economic case that favors recycling.


The only people doing it are doing it overseas in countries that don't have much enviornmental oversight.

Or, at least that was the case when I sold off the batteries for the backup room for Shoreham. I had to sell them off to some Bengali firm. But they paid well for them

Seriously, was I putting them in the containers for recycling? (I honestly don't know) I was under the impression that they were being held in special containers because they were so toxic that merely being in the same fucking building with them was just too risky to take a chance on.

Between those, and the lightbulbs that had to also be specially disposed of, the toner cartridges that women of childbearing years could not touch (so some evil man had to be fetched up to change the damn things) and the dreaded specter of plastic water bottles lurking everywhere, slowly poisoning us, it's a wonder I am still alive.

That's what you have to love about a private capital system. Distributed power and discretion through capital.

It's not just the government deciding everything. But Elon Musk can convince a group of people about what he wants to do, he can use his own capital, and people can construct as big a project as they can bring together.

As someone who has had some sympathy for socialism at times in his life, I remark that this is what socialists don't seem to get. They prefer the concentration of discretion--discretion inequality if you will.

God bless the free markets.

Louisiana authorities have charged a man with disturbing the peace after he was found wandering down a street and screaming profanities.

27-year-old Jonathan Porter told authorities SpongeBob SquarePants had stolen his paperwork.
The Monroe News Star reports the Ouachita Parish Sherriff's Office responded to a call Sunday that 27-year-old Jonathan Porter was intoxicated and creating a public disturbance. Deputies wrote in arrest warrants that Porter told them the cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants had stolen his paperwork and that "God has battleships but hasn't sent them yet."

The arrest warrant says deputies noticed a white substance near Porter's mouth and found meth and a narcotic pain reliever in his pockets.

Kudu Coffee and Craft Beer in Charleston, SC sells an IPA from Stone Brewing company which is 9.4% ABV.

Posted by: Bandersnatch at October 18, 2019 06:25 AM (gd9RK)

I searched their web site and found an ad that listed their various beers and ports with the ABV content. The highest one was 13.4%. One wonders about that with the limit of 6% BV?

652 So the local press was wall to wall coverage of the life of Congressmen Cummings.


So between the John McCain process toward death, RBG's continuing fight against cancer and the fact that Cummings was hospitalized since around the fourth of last month, never returned to conduct business, and died in Hospice Care...

Does this nation need a discussion on medical leave of absence requirements for our government?

I know that the office of the President is pretty well covered.

ALCOHOL by VOLUME.....Drink Moar Barrels...

Posted by: saf at October 18, 2019 06:44 AM (5IHGB)

663 Looking around I did find this:

ABV vs. ABW





The majority of the world measures alcohol content by volume. In very
rare instances (such as historically in Utah), the government may
measure alcohol by weight (ABW). Why is this? The reason is unclear, but
it makes things complicated and confusing.








If you see an alcohol percentage on a beer label but it does not
specify whether it is ABV or ABW, it is safe to assume that it is ABV.








ABV can be converted to ABW by dividing by 0.795. That means that the
3.2 percent ABW beer you buy in Utah is actually 4.0 percent ABV.








The equation looks like this: 0.032 x 0.795 = 0.0402

Posted by: Vic at October 18, 2019 06:44 AM (mpXpK)

If you think about college and really opening up the experience is would be so easy for the college boards to hide names, race, and pictures to post real skills, education, and abilities.

And then when the kid was selected by a college or 2 they would notified and allow their info to be unlocked.

690 I'm surprised so many pundits think impeachment is a forgone conclusion. I don't think so. As long as all the GOP house members are against I can't believe Pelosi would allow a strictly party line impeachment vote to happen... with the "no" vote being somewhat bi-partisan with a handful of dems joining Rs.

Being from his district I think there is an outside chance a Republican could win that vacant seat if the Dem pick is weak and the republican runs as a "bi-partisan" independent. His district is very gerrymandered and the parts that aren't West Baltimore are heavily independent registered. I guesstimate breakdown is 35% R, 45% D and 30% I.

It was an Academy Sports store, Vic, and the DOJ's contention is that the shooter used a Colorado license to make the TX purchase.

Yeah, that's a federal no no. I expect, if true, that Aacademy will be on the hook for many millions in the civil cases filed by the 26 families of the dead.

The Air Force is on the hook too, as they didn't properly report to the NCIC about the shooter's history of violence, including him spending a year in the brig after a court martial for assaulting his (ex) wife.

Once again, we have more than enough gun laws, but not enough enforcement.
