The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Through an extremely difficult situation, I told the truth. I relayed information as best I could to state partners. And we did what was demanded for the sake of our city.”…Minneapolis, MN Mayor Jacob Frey


Quote II

“These direct actions against elected officials, and especially civil servants like myself, are out of line with and go against every democratic principle that guides our nation. Before this devolves into the new way of doing business by mob rule here in Seattle, and across the nation, elected officials like you must forcefully call for the end of these tactics. Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best

Quote III

“With that said, protesters targeting one individual’s house is a bullying tactic that will certainly require an extra patrol response to ensure every resident in Snohomish County can feel safe in their own home, with their loved ones, no matter what they choose to do to make a living.”Snohomish County Sheriff Adam Fortney

Quote IV

....there is no way Mr. Biden can survive the three-month homestretch of an election campaign. He can barely make it through a ten-minute appearance in front of twenty-three hand-picked partisans in a TV studio. Life imitates art, as Oscar Wilde tartly observed. The Manchurian candidate is truly here. James Howard Kunstler


Quote V

"This was not a planned robbery. This is something that just happened."Deputy Lancaster County Public Defender Todd Molvar


Quote VI

“This shouldn’t be complicated. Peaceful protests must be protected. Riots must be stopped. No one has the right to assault another person, to firebomb a building, to throw a Molotov cocktail into a police car. That’s not exercising a constitutional right-that’s terrorizing your fellow citizens. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)


Quote VII

“Every time ‘Keep on Rockin’ in the Free World’ or one of my songs is played at your rallies, I hope you hear my voice. Remember it is the voice of a tax-paying US citizen who does not support you. Me.”Neil Young

My guess is some low level employee at Garmin is going to hear, "I didn't say it was your fault, I said I was going to blame you.

Fitness brand Garmin paid millions of dollars in ransom after an attack took many of its products and services offline last month, Sky News reports. The payment was reportedly made through a ransomware negotiation company called Arete IR, in order for Garmin to recover data held hostage as a result of the attack.

BleepingComputer reported last week that Garmin had received a decryption key to access data encrypted by the virus, and that the initial ransom demand was for $10 million.

The attack itself began on July 23rd, and put Garmin’s wearables, apps, website, and even its call centers offline for several days. Garmin confirmed that it had been the victim of a cyberattack on July 27th, as many of its services were starting to come back online. Its statement did not say whether it had paid a ransom in response to the attack, but noted that no customer data was accessed, lost, or stolen.

When the girls come home they like to watch Life Time Movie Channel and/or Hall Mark Movie Channel. They figure out the plot before the movie is a quarter of the way through. Sometimes they even come up with their own scripts. I suppose now they will be drafting their very own self-help books.

The first self-described self-help book was published in 1859. The author's name, improbably, was Samuel Smiles; the title, even more improbably, was Self-Help. A distillation of lessons from the lives of famous people who had pulled themselves up by their bootstraps, it sold millions of copies and was a mainstay in Victorian households. Every generation since had its runaway bestseller, such as How to Live on 24 Hours a Day (190, Think and Grow Rich (1937), or Don't Sweat the Small Stuff (1997).

By now, the $11 billion self-help industry is most definitely not small stuff. Yet when you strip it down, there's very little new information. After all, we were consuming self-help for centuries before Smiles, just under different names. Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius gave tweet-sized advice in Meditations; so did Benjamin Franklin in Poor Richard's Almanack. Even self-help parody isn't new. Shakespeare did it with Polonius' "to thine own self be true" speech in Hamlet: basically a bullet-point list from a blowhard.

West Virginia takes a fair amount of ridicule. This wont help one bit.

Humans aren't the only ones susceptible to the psychedelic chemicals found in magic mushrooms. "Zombie cicadas" — under the influence of a parasitic fungus — have reemerged in West Virginia to infect their friends, and now scientists have a better understanding of how it happens.


Researchers from West Virginia University recently saw the return of these bizarre creatures, which are infected with a fungus called Massospora. According to a study published in the journal PLOS Pathogens, the fungus manipulates the insects to unknowingly infect other cicadas, rapidly transmitting the disease to create a zombie army of sorts.

Saturday Night's ONT linked to a castle for sale in Ireland. That would be a hell of a place to throw a MoMe. Tonight's potential MoMe get away? A cold war bunker located in Fairdale, North Dakota.

HALF AN HOUR SOUTH OF the Canadian border, in Fairdale, North Dakota, a hulking concrete structure rises up from the flat fields that surround it. The beige buildings are so prominent on an otherwise pastoral landscape that they could be mistaken for a 20th-century Stonehenge.

It’s a Cold War missile site, and it’s for sale.

In the 1970s, relations between the United States and the Soviet Union were about as chilly as you’d expect in the middle of a Cold War. Both nations were still locked in an arms race, expanding their arsenals just in case. In northern states such as Montana and the Dakotas, relics of the conflict are strikingly common. “The idea was that if missiles were coming in from the Soviet Union over the Arctic, these were defensive missiles intended to shoot down anyone coming in,” says Dave Keller, a realtor for Pifer’s Auctions, which is selling the property.

Hey at least it's not Williston, ND.

Do you have Google Music? Well, you have some backing up to do. And sooner rather than later.

Google Play Music has been given the death sentence by Google, and today the company has announced a bit more detail about how its execution will be carried out. The main message from today's blog post is "back up your music now," as Google says it will wipe out all Google Music collections in December 2020.

We've known for a while that the shutdown would be sometime in 2020, but for most regions, Google has now narrowed it down to "October." Here's the full timeline:

On the bright side, gluten free. Genius Award Winner.

He’s a cereal (box) drug dealer, police say.

Wilkes-Barre Twp. police said they seized a cache of drugs and wads of cash from a Frosted Flakes cereal box during a recent drug bust along Highland Park Boulevard.

Waldo “Papi” Gonzalez-Alvarado, 34, of Wilkes-Barre, was selling fentanyl and heroin in the business district, police said.

Police said Gonzalez-Alvarado was wanted by the Luzerne County Drug Task Force on similar accusations in the area.

During a search, police said they found a large amount of heroin, fentanyl, paraphernalia, and $7,819 from the Frosted Flakes box.

46 > Sounds like the whining of someone who sold the rights to his music and no longer controls it.

Even if he still owns it, there's something called a "compulsory license" or "statutory license".

If you've published your music under one of the big rights organizations like ASCAP, anyone can use it for basically any purpose, as long as they pay the appropriate fee.
This was set up around a hundred years ago, so that (e.g.) radio stations didn't have to negotiate a separate contract with every single musician.

We had pretty high turnout; over 6,000 votes in a county of less than 30,000 is good for a primary election. There was a barnburner of a sheriff's race, though, and a hot race for state Senate. Fortunately, all the candidates are Republicans, so it's more fun than aggravating.

I really hope this Amendment 2 thing gets shot down, though.

109 Hey everybody. Again, great musical choices MisHum.

Neil Young is a good musician but doesn't have all the sense in the world. For instance, and even though he performed at Woodstock, he's nowhere to be found in the film.

Why? Because at the time, for whatever reason, he hated cameras (I think he had stage freight as well) and told director Michael Wadleigh he'd KILL him if he appeared in the finished film.

Having said that... there's actually a *right way* to protest against it. I think I shared this before, but I read that when Tom Scholz of Boston found out Mike Huckabee was himself performing "More Than A Feeling" at his rallies, Scholz sent Huckabee a letter asking, *politely,* not to use the song. Scholz also made sure to mention, he was still happy Mike liked the song. End result is that Mike stopped but didn't end up feeling insulted in the process.

His not hating America was refreshing.
Posted by: eleven


Craig was far and away my favorite late-nighter. Much more spontaneous and "don't-give-a-f**k" than the others, and while he would talk about serious topics, you always got the sense that he was there to entertain you, not preach to you.

And he genuinely does respect America. In his autobiography, he mentions how when he hosted the WH Correspondents Dinner he met G.W. Bush, and that while he strongly disagreed with him on his policies, he chose not to bring that up in person, because it wasn't about the man, it was about the office and what it represented. Very cool, IMO.

202 Study: Saving Pandas Lead To Downfall Of Other Animals

https://tinyurl.com/y5hgugj9

Robert sez: Pandas are the prime example of what environmentalism is about. Pandas are the animal that is most ill-suites to survival of the fittest. They're dumb as balls and can barely bring themselves to breed. Seriously, look up how these animals survive and you will agree that the one word that describes it best is, "poorly." If there is an animal worthy of extinction, it's the panda. Naturally, Swampy chooses the most worthless animal in existence as his symbol.

Fuck pandas!

220 I'll trust NaCly Dawg for the substance on it, but from the macro perspective, the Senate GOP is close to a catastrophe, and "change", "radical" change, is a desperate thing to be welcomed if it can happen.

Probably hopeless anyway. Trump will rule by decree (EO) to a limited extent, and that'll be about it. Even with a GOP House, little of a lasting nature is to be expected.

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

It is (although I've never tried it from a helicopter). They're tough critters, meaner than a second ex and twice as ugly. My Dad and I used to head south for hog huntin' every fall. I once shot one, a good headshot, with a .303 British at about 15 yards. Damn thing ran a quarter mile through every bramble it could find before it dropped, and it was still pissed off when I got there. It's worth it for home-cured bacon.

This is the part that the leftists don't get. They get away with their antics only so long as I and the millions of people like me tolerate it. We believe that the rule of law is better than the rule of man, but if they are bound and determined to do away with the rule of law, then they will get the rule of man, and they won't like it one bit. Laws are there to protect the weak in society from the strong, and when the laws are gone, it's not the strong who suffer. I will always be fine, no matter what happens, but the Justins in their basements with their Obamacare and the Jills who don't have cervixes won't.

Having spent six years living there, I can attest that they have always been crazy. It is very much like a small town that got big. There's a definite pecking order, and a specific set of rules about who gets to be where.

If you are white, you stay in the West End or in condos in high rises. If you are not, you live in tenements that haven't seen an upgrade in 110 years. Some places you just don't go.

Lots of fenced and gated neighborhoods. It's really odd.

444 That explosion in Beirut today was about as close a simulation of what a terrorist nuke would be like as I care to see. Destructiveness goes by the cube root of explosion power for ground burst, so it's not going to be too far off in terms of destructive radius, etc, and it was even located in the docks with all the shipping containers. About the only thing that's missing is radioactive contaminants.

Hopefully we get some guys out there to help; apart from the humanitarian aspects of it, some ground-truth knowledge of "this is what happens when you have a couple of kilotons of boom blowing up in a built up modern area" in the heads of disaster response guys isn't a bad thing to have.

never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by stupidity...

*if* they had left !2700 tons of ammonium nitrate lying around unsupervised for 6 years, and then managed to have a fire in the same warehouse, the first explosion could have triggered the second, which in turn could have triggered a dust explosion in the grain elevator nearby.

that's one theory i've seen posited.

Hezbollah munitions being prematurely detonated are also a possibility.

the only thing i'm fairly certain of is that we will never know for sure.

Jeremy Bentham founded the philosophical school of Utilitarianism. Which held that the highest and best use of anything, or anyone, was to be useful. So, when he died, his followers had him taxidermied, and made into a hat rack. Or something like that.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at August 04, 2020 11:42 PM (iEBOM)

466 Weft, there are plenty of old nuke tests, but those are usually of more sophisticated/powerful designs and, for fairly obvious reasons, they didn't light them off downtown in built up areas.

In addition, being able to physically inspect stuff that just got exposed to the blast is worth a lot more than looking at video footage. Ditto with disaster response there, which is responding to an actual event. Real > simulation.

casualties so far appear a lot lower than I would have thought; buildings are blown to hell, but most of the people in the area survived. Probably due to the fact that it was just a pressure wave this time, and none of the intense heat that a huke weapon develops.

I mentioned that face masks were required, and got replies from, It's not your business, to it's on my neck. When leaving the store I questioned the store manager about 4 people not wearing masks. I was told by the store manager that they had a person at the front handing out masks when we came in. There was NO Person handing out masks and when these people went to check out they were not questioned by the cashier.

The store has a lot of signs saying 'Face Mask Required' but it appears enforcement is lacking.

That might buy ONE of the displays. Not sure it's enough to cover the installation.

Hint: Installation will be a shocking sight to you, as they pretty much fully disassemble your airplane's interior, and ALL of the instrument panel, down to the firewall.

They have to get access to the core wiring-bundles, and remove every single wire that went to the to-be-removed "steam-gauges", as well as installing new wiring runs for DIGITAL sensor pick-ups throughout the airframe and engine spaces, and wires up into the cabin roof or belly, for various antennas and such.

Everything that is removed, is weighed, and it's former location in the airframe is carefully noted.

As is everything that is installed.

An ENTIRELY NEW Airworthiness Certificate will have to be FAA approved, with ENTIRELY NEW weight, balance and center of gravity pages appended to the aircraft's maintenance logbooks and Operating Manuals.

We haven't even begun to discuss the MSRP on the hardware itself.

Posted by: rhomboid at August 05, 2020 12:40 AM (OTzUX)

No. I plan to do it myself. The original barrel is externally threaded with a 5/8" X20 thread. Thread is damaged, but a 5/8-20 nut will run all the way on it. This isn't a very good system since you cannot adjust headspace without getting the loading ramp and extractor slot out of register. I expect the original maker screwed the barrel blank in tight, set the head space, and then cut the ramp and the extractor slot. So the barrel was custom-fit to the receiver.

Upon receiving the TT-33 barrel, if there is enough material, I plan to turn down the chamber end, leaving a short flange, and then make a spanner nut in the form of a sleeve, to secure the barrel in the frame, said nut bearing against the flange on the chamber end of the barrel.

577 So the order to drop nukes on Japan said that such drops were to be done no sooner than today (August 4), 75 years ago. Of course the first one was dropped on the 6th, and the second on the 9th. There was a "pause" after Hiroshima to see if the enemy responded - they didn't. Then, a hurry-up, as a weather system was closing in on the targets (Kokura, Nagasaki secondary).

And, of course, there was a desire to maximize shock (didn't work), and to convince Japan that we had lots of these things, if you want them to keep comin', just let us know.

Hurry-up was so bad that Sweeney, advised of his technical problem (reserve fuel tank blocked*), got out of Bock's Car to consult with Tibbets, who decided the need to hit soon, and before the weather might impose indefinite delay, demanded the mission go ahead.

586 So that ND site sounds like a Sprint or Spartan ABM site.

There are lots of ammo bunkers empty at the Hawthorne, NV, arsenal. But then there'd have to be. They stretch out over a good portion of a large, beautiful valley. And the facility is now down to just demilling ordnance.

I would guess most of the bunkers up at Seal Beach (qdp's hood) are empty). Would further guess that the surprisingly small number of similar bunkers at North Island in San Diego are *not* empty. As are those embedded in the hillside of Point Loma, across the channel from North Island. The perimeter fencing at those looks right for nukes, but there aren't the patrols or observation towers I'd expect.

Steam gauges will still fly for the next fifty years, or more.

But the radio stacks of a certain age are already frequency non-grata.

Eventually, a mid-70s piston single that was IFR certified all the way through the late '90s, will likely end up being only too heavy or complex to allow being restricted to the "Sport" pilot rating.

They're steadily pushing the digital upgrades to Panel requirements to where at a minimum, the radios, Attitude Indicator (coupled to other Sacred Six instruments) and ADS-B In/Out are going to be baseline mandatory for even a VFR Private Pilot rated airframe.

Seriously though, they're going to have to figure out ways to exempt the classic Alaska Bush Planes. Monster horsepower, some of the most skilled bad-weather and bad-terrain pilots in the world, flying with not much more than a spirit-level, compass, altimeter, rate of climb and bank indicator on the panel.

Handheld ICOM radio zip-tied to the overhead, with a quality headset plugged into the box is their "radio", and it works.

They'll not argue with the FAA. But they'll keep flying, all the same.

I don't claim any prowess at all. Maybe I just know enough to be dangerous. But I am not afraid to try it. I figure a sleeve nut that is a running fit on the barrel, and longer than the cartridge, and threaded its full length into the female thread in the receiver, should withstand the pressures expected. I would use red Loctite on the threads and the I.D. of the sleeve nut, too.

605 420K breast/colon/cervical screening tests missed between March 15 and June 15 due to shutdown. At least half of that would be in the indefensible/inexcusable category, if not more. I'd assume models exist that could generate rough #s of additional deaths and serious cases as a result of this delay, but haven't seen those #s yet.

There are some inconvenient and uncomfortable "excess death" # estimates being done - using CDC's own averages and framework. One puts the total at 50% of the COVID total - i.e., substantially higher than 50%, when the COVID total is adjusted for over-broad definition, and outright silliness (gunshot deaths being included as C19).

I'll put my money on the Brush Pilots.

Any stick who can skim the surface of a river with their Tundra Tires so as to hit the wee-short bit of gravel bar "landing-strip" mid-stream in the shortest possible distance, has my vote.

I'd pay good Pay Per View money to watch the reaction of an FAA Examiner in the backseat of that particular Super Cub when the Brush Pilot puts it down in such manner.

Or, the corresponding "tail-up" evolution under full thrust, before the main's brakes are released.

Worldwide, the Brush Pilots and Missionary Pilots have accomplished more Aerial Wizardry than most stunt pilots could dare imagine.

Historical tidbit. The orbiting fire of the USAF gunships, from the Vietnam C-147 "Spooky" to today's C-130J Scepter, all were inspired by Missionary Pilots executing a "Turn Around a Point" maneuvers, while lowering a bucket loaded with supplies or Bibles, suspended from a rope, while they flew the orbit.

If they did it just right, that bucket would touch the ground and simply revolve around the points of the compass, without itself moving in location, as the pilot flew the circle.

That gave some people with less merciful motivations than the Missionaries, some ideas.

The rest as we know it, is not only history, but continues into the future.

$479,900.

That's for a factory new airplane with 12 hours total time.

That's the advertisement, going to a photo of the Glass Panel. Note it still has the Sacred Six rendered in Steam Gauges, below the displays.

You can scroll through the other pics in the ad, of course, and should.

Conversely, a GOOD, older '172, with complete logbooks and maybe halfway through it's 2,000 hour between major overhaul periods, can often be found in the $40,000~$50,000 ish range.

Still "not cheap". But worlds away from a half a freakin' million dollars.

652 Another full day of messing with the poor wretched Panhard. Got the clutch cable shortened, and, working the pedal by hand, it feels OK. Engine not running yet.

Moved on to putting the front bumper and its "crash bar" back in place. Oops! Engine now sits about an inch lower than it did before. Tubular struts that hold the crash bar to the frame head come up and contact the engine at two points on each side before the crash bar bracket holes line up. (three on each side, forming a triangle).

Step one: slotted washers to make shims, and shimmed the bell housing mounts up, and the rear transaxle mount down, rotating the engine upward. Close, but not good enough.

Step two: marked the interference sites on the strut tubes, took the bumper down, and cut notches in the tubes, and then welded flat plate over the cutouts so as to not lose all the strength in the tubes. I also drilled out the holes in the mounting brackets with an oversize drill bit to make for a little wiggle room to start bolts. The car had been hit in front at some time, and the crash bar is subtly distorted, and was cracked on the passenger side. I welded the crack up, too.

This worked! Bumper and crash bar in place, and there is 1/4" clearance to the engine at the tightest places. There are also engine mounts that fit between the exhaust pipes and the crash bar. I have to rebuild the brackets for these, and can can probably do so in a way to shift the engine up a tad on the three present mounts, and augment the clearance at the notches. So the engine/transaxle assembly will be five-point mounted on bonded rubber cushions.

Any first class, low hours Cessna 152 or Grumman AA5-B (much less a Cheetah or Tiger) is an above $50,000 proposition, and that's with ONLY the ADS-B/out FAA required upgrade.

Long standing Moron lore is to bust on the Boat Owners here, for dealing with that "hole in the water into which one pours money".

Yachtsmen laugh at the Aircraft Pilots and Owners Association Members, who truly know the meaning of Pain.

Alas. I know plenty of Yachtsmen who also hold Pilots Licenses and own their own airplanes.

They are the 2nd happiest gluttons for punishment I have the pleasure to know.

Happiest at the dedicated shooters.

We might be poorer. But we are HAPPIER!

My favorite remains the trans-Atlantic flight that landed in Brussels, instead of Amsterdam (the actual destination)*.

1990s? Anyway. Had to be the all-time classic captain's announcement to the passenger section.

"Well folks, welcome to ..... well, Brussels. I know you thought you were headed to Amsterdam, but we've got buses waiting for you after customs".

I only know how the ones in smart phones work, which might be different from the standalone units.

The API, as abstracted by most libraries, reports latitude, longitude, altitude, heading, speed, and some other stuff.

If you were showing your position on a flat map, the simplest way to write the code would be to just throw the altitude information away. So it should work.

Cel phone "GPS" (isn't, really) works from triangulation of Cel Phone Towers, but makes similar computational math to determine speed, position, elevation.

Stand-alone GPS actually "sees" GPS satellites in orbit, does the math and provides the solutions.

I've been duly screwed over by any given cel-phone based "GPS" system.

Pro-Tip on buying a true stand-alone system.

Go to a major Truck Stop, spend $300ish, and buy a Trucker's Grade unit. Far greater road details, including the hidden County roads.

FAR greater accuracy. And here's the big thing.

Near to ZERO "Latency". That's "lag time".

You all have experienced "Turn Right in 200 feet", about 100 ft. after you passed the intersection. That's "Latency" or Lag Time.

The Trucker's unit doesn't do that. You're paying for much faster data links and processors.

But isn't that worth it?

If he hadn't resisted arrest when arrested, would he be alive today? Yes.

If he hadn't been polluted with drugs when resisting arrest, would he be alive today? Unknown, possible.

What's the point of all this?

There may be some reason the DA said that the evidence would not support the more serious charges against the police. Or not. Unknown, but likely.

There is little reason to think the AG, Ellison, has made any reasonable, ethical, or responsible moves in this. Actually, no reason. Nothing in his life suggests any familiarity with any of those qualities.

Let's see if the state actually takes Ellison's over-charged menu to trial.

But meanwhile, the degradation of the country, the racist totalitarian obsessions of "liberal" and "progressive" trash ruining the country, the cowardice and idiocy of much of the populace and 99% of the institutions, have been revealed or confirmed.

I guess I was "lucky" then. Found the classic rash 2 weeks ago, appt last week with blood drawn. Dr started me on antibiotics immediately. Both tests came back positive.

Don't know when I was bit, apparently the rash can appear weeks later (or not at all!).

It certainly explains the symptoms I've had for over a month, though.

I've heard that from others, too. I'm sorry. I hope she can get it fugured out.

The fatigue is an issue, too. What's weird is all of my symptoms could be explained away, so if I hadn't seen the rash, which in itself was a small miracle, I would've never got checked. The rash is already almost gone., and I only 1st saw it about 2 weeks ago.

A couple of years ago my sweet little daughter unplugged our deep freezer because she wanted to do something nice for mom and me and surprise us by vacuuming out all the cars. Venison, brisket, roasts, chicken, and who knows how many hundreds of dollars worth of other stuff.

That's one of those "joy of parenting" moments. I secured the plug in the socket so that particular thing could never happen again.

Good article.

There is a third possibility.

Conservative Christians could set aside their personal goals, re-enter the field of education and take control of school boards and shape the future of public education.

It's a feature of conservatives everywhere, we surrender the institutions we created without a fight, generally choosing to remove ourselves from it rather than face it head on.

California is lost? Move to a red state.

Football is full of woke madness? I'll stop watching.

Schools are leftist? Put your kids in private school.

Church puts in gay clergy? Let's switch churches.

I'm not really scolding, as I'm guilty myself. Every time we boycott and dropout and go John Galt, we lose another part of our culture and our history.

I think it's mostly because they preferred a career path with movement and challenge.

I'm not saying that as a slight, either. Be honest with yourself, though. A teacher does exactly the same job for 30+ years with zero expectations to improve*, and gets raises every year for maintaining that level of achievement.



* Many with the opposite. Urban areas have a 2/3rds illiteracy rate, and no one cares.

Judging by a comprehensive Twitter thread, we have reached the Orwellian world of Big Brother. This is a world in which those who represent power for the sake of power are working overtime to convince their fellow Americans to dismiss reality and concede that two plus two does not equal four but, instead, equals five:

Ace had a full post on it yesterday. It's just so messed up. It's just like it's this need for them to first destroy the truth by arguing that 2+2 can equal 4 or it can equal 5. But that's only step one. Then it becomes arguing saying that 2+2 only equals 4 is a tool of the white patriarchy. And then you reach 2+2 = 5 or you're a bigot.

I hold individual teachers in higher esteem than I do their governing bodies at the state levels, and at the union level which is foully corrupted by marxists and far leftists with their ideas on race, gender, and removing all incentives to strive.

At the end of the year, online, the kids in my grandson's first grade class were asked to set a math goal. Most of the kids chose learning multiplication and division. That was torpedoed as "Inappropriate!" as only two digit addition and subtraction would be taught and "you will be expected to do it, no matter where you are (academically)" They were also forbidden to submit things they were doing that were above the curriculum.

Whatever happened to the Cedar Revolution in Lebanon in 2005?

I remember at the time that it was a big deal, because it was more proof that the Bush Administration foreign policy was inspiring reovlutions in countries like Lebanon.

Did that just flame out or get put down by radicals?

Wikipedia's summary:

Feb 14, 2005 - Apr 10, 2005

The Cedar Revolution or Independence Intifada was a chain of demonstrations in Lebanon triggered by the assassination of former Lebanese Prime Minister, Rafik Hariri. The popular movement was remarkable for its avoidance of violence, peaceful approach, and its total reliance on methods of civil resistance.

914 Bitch wants to be paid like a rockstar, or at least like a surgeon.

--

Teachers have a high opinion of themselves, don't they? They want to be, demand to be, lionized and paid accordingly for their "sacrifice" at teaching brainwashing America's youth. The first several grade school years are so basic that anybody could be a teacher. Latter high school years, perhaps more skill is involved, but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to be a teacher. I get sick and tired of hearing about how precious they are*.

*Absolutely no offense to those who went into teaching for the love of children...but I do not see that as a motivating factor for many teachers today.

921 I guess that I really shouldn't bash individual teachers, who as a group I used to greatly admire.

.....

Teachers aren't individuals.

They collectively bargain.

They ask for blanket policy like tenure.

They don't want individual evaluation of their skills.

They march in to budget meeting dressed in the same shirts to demand pay raises.

They advertise themselves as a profession (generally to signal how virtuous and underpaid they are).

Sit 10 bartenders down at a table, you'll have an argument with 5 minutes as to who is full of shit, who does it wrong, who does it right, etc, etc. and everyone considers themselves judged by their own merit.

Show me the last time a teacher argues against tenure because it protects the shitty, worthless teachers.

Show me the last time a teacher said they deserved a raise, but Mr. Johnson down the hall sucks and should be fired.

It never happens because they are self-serving, want to stay in the same job forever, unmotivated, unimaginative, middle managers.

And what's worse, they think they are morally superior.

He said you can't beat it, summers off, half the time the little beggars were farmed out to art, music, and gym teachers, and he could kick back. Then he discovered interns, and get them in there to ride herd while he took a badly needed nap in the lounge. Made me proud to know him.
