The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg

During the shampeachment hearings yesterday, Trump's defense team had a lot of fun showing video recordings of today's Democrats complaining about the Clinton impeachment, how it was a partisan hostaet job, how it would create divisiveness and bitterness,lowered the bar for impeachment, every president henceforth would be impeached, etc. It was meant to point out their hypocrisy, which is fine, but what struck me is that many of the videos were of the *same guys* that are here now, like Schumer, and Nadler, and Biden.

The Clinton impeachment was, what, 1997? 1998? I'm too lazy to look it up, but that's getting close to 25 years ago. Yes, they've been around that long.

And don't get me started on Joe Biden. Do you morons know when he was first elected to the Senate? If you don't know, take a guess. For the answer, swipe your mouse past the colon at the end of this sentence: 1972.

No, I'm not making it up. That's according to Slow Joe's wiki page. Can you believe that? That's the year Nixon was impeached. That was nearly half a century ago.

If you've been in Congress for 48 freakin' years, you've been there too long. Heck, if you've been in Congress half that long, that's still too long. And what has he done in all those years? What are his accomplishments? I mean, aside from trying to grope underaged girls and sniff their hair, what has he done?

Joe's lucky he doesn't live back in the day when another senator might think he's justified in thrashing him with a blunt end of a cane on the Senate floor. Because some guy like Creepy Joe, the other senators would be lining up around the block to get their licks in. *



She Does Not Look At All Comfortable:

creepy biden 02.jpg

And this one here looks even worse. Is Creepy Joe trying to cop an under-feel there?

*No, I'm not calling for Joe Biden to be violently assaulted. I'm just pointing out the repugnance of the public behavior that he has been allowed to get away with for years.

23 Love the Trump rally drinks.

I've said it before, and I"ll say it again. I think we're going to win because Trump's supporters are having fun and his haters aren't. Watching him and the crowd at a rally, they're genuinely happy to be there. He's cracking jokes (sometimes at his own expense), and the crowd is eating it up.

The Dems are running on entirely negative energy, and they've been doing it for more than 4 years. The Dark Side can't sustain you for that long. Eventually, you get burned out when you're being fueled by negative emotions. You don't get burnt out when you're having fun.

Please join him in his need, asking God to send him: consolation in his sorrow, courage in his fear, and healing in the midst of his suffering. Ask our loving Lord to fill him with the grace to accept whatever may lie ahead for him and his loved ones, and to strengthen his faith in God's healing powers.

Thank you, Saint Jude Thaddeus, for the promise of hope you hold out to all who believe, and inspire him to give this gift of hope to others as it has been given to him.

72 Pic 5 of Guy Williams with the thin mustache looks like it might be from the period when he played Zorro on TV. Still my image of what Zorro would look like.

June Lockhart was more famous for playing the mom on Lassie during the "Timmy" period, but she guested on a lot of TV shows, like Have Gun -- Will Travel as a lady doctor Paladin is attracted to, and a decidely un-spinsterish schoolteacher on an episode of U.N.C.L.E. in 1964.

163 Get old school peanut butter without the sugar and all the preservatives etc, you know the one that has ingredients list:

Peanuts
Oil
Salt

That doesn't turn into syrup when hot, it just gets warm and toasted in flavor. Big drawback: you have to stir the hell out of it when you first open it, because the oil will have separated and the peanuts on the bottom are a brick-like cake.

So I've read; I don't remember it directly. The "Jeff" series (aka Jeff's Collie in syndication) featured an actress who projected a very "farm-woman" vibe, not really a pretty woman as I recall, but very believable. Then Cloris, who was quite attractive in her day, and then June Lockhart.

"Jeff Miller," the character, was played by one Tommy Rettig. Any guesses on what he went on to do after he left acting? Some of you have probably handled the results of his work.

182 I agree with the comment about Democrats and negative energy.
Had an argument with a very liberal friend who said Trump admitted the quid pro quo and should be impeached. She said that I would never agree because I liked Trump. When I said that I liked his policies, that my retirment account looked great, it cost less to heat my house, unemployment was down. Her reply was children were going hungry in this counry, that people all over the workd hated us, were laughing at us. She knew this because her 27 year old son has friends in Europe who told him this.I realized that I am an optimist who is thrilled that even though I am a little over 29(maybe a little more than little) I have a great life. She i s a pessimist, who will never be satisfied. Trump could deliver world peace and she would say, what about global warming. She actually thinks Bernie would make a good president.I'm just giving up on talking politics. People refuse to see what is right in front of them, the best economy 20 years, in order to continue TDS.

To me this looks like messaging to Obama and his DNC pals - not Democrat voters - as a way to buy their support. Obama has not only not publicly endorsed Joe, but he's let his comments to friends be relayed to the media (unnamed sources, of course) that Joe didn't have to run, etc..
IIRC, Obama told Joe in 2016 that he would endorse him and campaign for him only if Joe allowed Obama to pick his VP. Wisely, Joe declined that offer. Sure looks like Joe is now saying: OK, you can name your VP, just please help me attain my dream of being elected!!!

Mom was super careful about TV in our house. She had an absolute rule: you can watch shows, specific pre-requested shows on TV, and that was it, not just "watch TV". Which was a good rule, for kids I think.

237 >>She actually thinks Bernie would make a good president.I'm just giving up on talking politics. People refuse to see what is right in front of them, the best economy 20 years, in order to continue TDS.

I've been following politics for longer than I care to remember. Kind of a family thing so I started young.

This is the single best period in my lifetime, the only thing that comes remotely close is Reagan. But this is actually better and happening at a much more consequential time. We are living through a time that will be studied forever in history books and it kind of saddens me that so many on our side only see a half empty or a completely empty glass.

You don't turn around decades of decay and rot by simply electing a change agent. It takes years of hard work and hard fighting. Not every day is going to be election day and there will be setbacks and difficult times but getting discouraged or giving in to negativity is not only pointless it's counterproductive.

In 5 years Trump is going to be gone. We will never have another period quite like this even those who are a bit younger than 29. Don't miss it by being angry and negative all the time.

From what I've read, Jonathan Harris, the actor, realized that he could be written out at any time. So he made his Dr. Smith into a campy villain you couldn't help but laugh at, and watch. Seems to have worked -- we still know the character's name.

268 182, Sharon,
You don't need to quit arguing politics but think of your 'friend' as if she was is in a religious cult. One of the first things that cults do is cut off any sources of alternative information either by taboo or by censorship.

Second, they create their own devils and angels and scripts for those that do not want to think about politics and tradeoffs--e.g. good and bad--using all sorts of logical fallacies so that the devil will be avoided and the angels emulated.

You see this with the ridiculous idea on the left that Che Guevara was a good guy because he supported the Revolution (e.g. angel) so that any apparent misdeeds of Che were because he was opposing bad people that had to be removed for heaven to come to earth.

Last, the cults reinforce the idea that the person in it is special, woke, or superior in virtue and intelligence. Most people do not want to be insignificant and are inherently concerned with social status, fitting in, etc. They also hate any contradictions that indicate that they are a) being hoodwinked, b) not so special, c) not particularly virtuous. Thus, direct conflict that breaks through this tissue of lies created by modern society cause real conflict and torment in the individual.

You can probably find deprogramming techniques used to get people over the hump who joined cults in rejoining reality. I know that there are books about it.

Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius at January 29, 2020 11:44 AM (Ejm1K)


IIRC, Roddenberry pitched Trek to CBS first, who told him they thought the concept interesting and would get back to him, then went off and shot LiS.

Which would explain why the pilot was so serious and dark - they were feeding of the Great Bird's mojo.

306 In the very first season,
some of the writers actually tried to push it into being a serious
sci-fi show. Then they gave up, and it turned into Leave it to Beaver in
Space, plus Penny and her weird ears Monkey.
Posted by: Dennis Hopper at January 29, 2020 11:34 AM (Kpl3J)


Having just watched the pilot and first episode last night, I'd forgotten you could smell Jonathan cooking up a way to stay on that show. Even the "dark" episodes looks pretty camp now. I'm not sure what they had in mind originally, but they never had a big picture and were obviously winging it. I think without Harrison it would have died quickly (see the pilot).



Heck, did you know that stupid monkey was in the pilot? The show was doomed from the get-go. Harrison just figured a way to make it last as long as it did with his ad-libs, and Irwin was all like "Let's go with that!!".

He could have ended his political career as goofy Uncle Joe, former VP to popular Democratic president Barack Obama.

And then he ran for president right after demanding payoffs for his family from an Eastern European country.

312 He sneaked on board to sabotage the ship and couldn't get off before blast off. It was his unaccounted for weight that caused the ship to go off course causing them to be Lost In Space.

Which is a pretty tight concept for a sci fi show, but it got goofy in a hurry.

much is being exposed ... internet has sped up the news cycles, opened alternative media. I think the half full glass of dismay is because there are so many layers of "resistance" .. where even when massive crimes are uncovered (Hillary, pallets of cash to terrorists, servers destroyed, lying heads of FBI) .. and yet they all skate, and the Trial of Trump continues apace.


So as DeepState continues to run the coup, from within SDNY/FBI we wonder ... do they still have complete control? There is certainly room for "concern" that elections may not be enough.


But yes, it is coming to a head, and the Trump Miracle is on a path to Trump the Sequel, four more years. Interesting Times ... but the debt debacle and avalanche of Modern Monetary Theory unlimited money ... that isn't even a headline ... just infinite spending for now ... tick tock. At least there is a bomb ticking, instead of just the slow grind into commie/globalist oblivion ... as we saw for 50 to 100 years.

"Dove" was filmed very early, before Rolfe and Co. had determined how James Bondian they wanted the show to be. It could almost have been a Bond story from Fleming himself about the ace British spy trapped in East Berlin and trying to cross back into the American sector with a crucial microdot.

400 Also the economic and societal structures of multiple planets is enormously different than a single nation on a single planet. Resources are hugely expanded. One town having a disaster does not topple an empire. One planet in trouble does not wipe out a galactic empire. Unless you really, really need it for a plot about peace and prejudice.

Don't get me wrong, VI was one of the best films in the series, but the plot never really made sense.

403 285 skywych, you are welcome. I've done retail politics and been in sales and you can recognize easy sells versus hard ones.

Truth is that most people are busy with their own lives and simply let society and culture indicate what the right answers are for a lot of things, politics included.

If a person is challenging that, they need to recognize that a lot of resistance to recognizing reality is emotional and applying logic to an emotional conclusion often results in either backlash or withdrawal because the object of conversion simply cannot handle the implications emotionally.

Ironically, the smarter in iq someone is, the less likely that they can persuaded from damn fool notions that have no correspondence with reality. People who are wrapped up in social status games are also harder to persuade in public because they fear losing social status (think Hollywood) and income opportunities.

Lower iq people are more pragmatic, probably because they more or less recognize reality for what it is and don't have emotional resistance to finding out what they considered fact is fiction. That is why you saw working class districts voting Conservative in Brexit because they were not tied up in the concept of being European rather than British. They voted their pocketbook.

From the Trump rallies, there may be some of that going on and that is part of the conflict between Gope and Trump. A lot of Gope officeholders, Sasse for example, have an idea of how the world works and here is this novice Trump indicated that it works some other way like on the issue of tariffs or being in Syria. Bolton, Kelly, McMasters, etc are also in this disreputable lineup.

Meanwhile, average folks are noting cousin Norm got a job, pay is up for retail clerks at the local hardware store, a new McDonalds was built, and so on. And the number of flag draped coffins coming into Dover are less. Thus, an average person is concluding that these are pretty good days and it appears like that DJT feller knows what is going on.

So, if you are doing retail politicking, go to the average folks, ignore the "educated" as harder cases not worthy of your time. Average folks not being vested in "ideas" are far more likely to be persuaded by concrete examples.

419 "Last,
the cults reinforce the idea that the person in it is special, woke, or
superior in virtue and intelligence. ...


You can probably find deprogramming techniques used to get people
over the hump who joined cults in rejoining reality." by whig


one man's cult is another man's religion ... the old deprogramming could involve kidnapping and forced "intervention" that was just brainwashing back into the old cult.

But certainly the social nature of man makes them stay "true to their team", as we see with Dems or RINOs or cucks. It is also true in sports team fan bases, and of course the blood versus crips type allegiance.


If we don't fix the "system", we will all have to choose our "cult", and support it to the death. Being a patriotic Trump and America First supported indeed does and should have some "cult" like, social networking qualities.


imo the "cult" term is over used and abused, to frame certain groups as the "other". ("othering" someone). Just engage people directly, and sure, recognize many have long held opinions that will change in their own time, as cognitive dissonance becomes too painful.

The letter comes in the midst of President Donald Trump attacking Bolton on Twitter,...

3/ ...and Bolton's lawyer accusing the White House of corrupting the vetting process for Bolton's book by sharing the contents of the book with those outside the National Security Council's Records Management Division....

461 >> So, if you are doing retail
politicking, go to the average folks, ignore the "educated" as harder
cases not worthy of your time. Average folks not being vested in
"ideas" are far more likely to be persuaded by concrete examples.


Interesting. The key is language (which frames/enforces ideas), isn't it? You have GOPe people using the same language as Democrats, MSM, academia, etc. on an issue such as immigration" -- 'undocumented: "dreamer" "path to citizenship" "comprehensive reform" blah blah blah. Then there's Trump who skips all the euphemisms that hide their agenda, ignore peoples' (legitimate) concerns and he uses direct language: "wall" "deport" "illegal" and so on.


So often nowadays educated = versed in the current euphemisms that trick people into perceiving themselves as smarter, more nuanced in their thinking.

463 Their Imperial core worlds got wrecked by a massive supernova that somehow achieved a warp-speed blast wave. (Either that, or JK Abrams doesn't understand the scale of space, see also Star Wars 7). It was the plotline that created the JJverse spinoff.

I'm not sure anyone who has ever written a Star Trek script understands the vastness of space and how many times faster than the speed of light you would have to travel in order to go to another star in a reasonable period of time.

471 Gowdy basically brings up a very important point in that thread: its never been established how the procedure should go, so people are winging it and the basic standards and requirement of justice and courtrooms are being ignored.

Since impeachments are so rare and sketchy, undefined, the basic standards of courtroom procedure and law are not applied or followed, which is why we now have this asinine "we have to talk to witnesses we ignored or didn't bother with in the impeachment about topics we didn't impeach the president over"

480 'way willowed by Ace, but wth this is where my comment belongs

Dennis Hopper #136 "...In the very first season, some of the writers actually tried to push it into being a serious sci-fi show. Then they gave up, and it turned into Leave it to Beaver in Space, plus Penny and her weird ears Monkey."

I was intrigued by the premiere movie. It did seem like we were finally getting real SF on TV. But, yes, it quickly went camp. Disappointed, I tuned out.

So, when the TV Guide said this new series called "Star Trek" was like "Lost in Space," I didn't watch it at first. Another reason to hate Lost in Space.

Warp Drives aren't really linear propulsion that truly makes you go faster than light. What they do (according to the Alcubierre theory) is compress space directly in front of the ship.

You end up crossing a much, much smaller physical distance, while never breaking the lightspeed barrier within the "bubble" of distorted space.

It's a lot more real-world credible than other forms of FTL propulsion, to the extent that NASA's Eagleworks division has been testing known technologies to see of they bend space (using laser measurements) in order to try to give us mechanical starting point on how to generate such an effect.

491 419, Illniwek, Agree to disagree.

Think of how the mass media propagates the same message as does the bureaucracy as does academia as does the entertainment complex etc. Think of how dissenters in these fields are treated. Now, very little of the behaviors of those institutions are based on empirical evidence from history or human behavior.

The problem with many ideologues of the conservative side is the overreliance on logic to convert someone via dialectic argument--I can tell you that you will not get far with a committed ideologue as for many politics has replaced religion as a value. Better off to work on average folks that might be amenable to reason.

From your comments that I have seen, you worry about Doom from financial collapse and do so from first principles that our system will collapse with life as we know it changed when the debt mountain collapses. If, however, you take a gander at This Time It's Different which is an economic history of booms and collapses for about 8 centuries, or read up on other histories that account for economics, most of the time, what happens is muddling through--usually through inflating the currency, debt relief laws, etc. That which cannot be repaid, won't be.

Now, this has certain implications for individuals--for example if you are on a cushy government pension--it will either be deflated or simply reneged--regardless of what the law says. Social security and Medicare is going to get trimmed by effectively reducing benefits--means testing for example or raising the age of being able to get it. If you lend a bunch of money, you may not get repaid or you will be repaid in cheaper money. The government could choose to default and simply not pay debt but the usual resort is what is being done now--inflate the debt away or force creditors to accept a trimming (GM anyone).

That will certainly have implications going forward but systematic collapse is not one of them absent social pathologies like Zimbabwe. Monetary crises are not the same as things like Black Death, Earthquakes, War and Famine, etc.

I remember in the late 90s, we had some commercial product for online Document viewing. It used one of them, though that company never told us which one. We needed to split the documents out to burned CDs for one of our clients. I studied that HEX code of one of those files for a couple of weeks (the product screwed with the file extension on purpose). I remember if I changed the extension and changed a HEX character 50 or 60 bytes in, I was able to process it in VB 6.

494 461, Lizzy, You are absolutely correct. Control of language so colorfully illustrated by Orwell in 1984 is used as a means to control the world of ideas.

For average folks that have outcome preferences that are broad, things like peace--means little Johnny down the street doesn't have to go to war, good economy means what the economy is like on Main Street rather than aggregate GDP/Stock/Bond prices, a good education means that Johnny can choose to make more and get a easier job via being prepared for college or a trade than their old man's custodial job.

Ideologues generally have specific policy prescriptions that they believe will cause certain outcomes and often double down when those policy prescriptions fail to work as promised. Cough, Obamacare for example. However, the challenge from the Right has been how do you persuade average people who like some of the features such as guaranteed issue, keeping kids on policy until 26, etc. to give up concrete outcomes that they believe are important versus the untested idea that insurance companies might reduce prices if Obamacare did not exist.

People, on average, wish to avert losses far more than potential gains and this is especially true for those on the lower half of society.

500 ...back in the day when another senator might think he's justified in thrashing him with a blunt end of a cane on the Senate floor.

This appear to be a garbled reference to the assault on abolitionist Senator Charles Sumner (R-MA) by Representative Preston Brooks (D-SC), a pro-slavery extremist. Brooks decided that Sumner had been rude about his uncle, Senator Andrew Butler (also D-SC). He attacked Sumner with a walking stick in the Senate chamber.

The assault had nothing to do with any personal misbehavior by Sumner; it was motivated strictly by the moral arrogance of pro-slavery men, and is paralleled today by the fashionable thuggery of the current Left.
