Overnight Open Thread (3-16-2015)

Quote of the Day I

No you don't get to get away with that. You don't get to advocate policies [i.e., higher minimum wage laws] which allow you to use force to deprive people of their jobs and their opportunities, and then claim that those who would have provided the jobs are the heartless ones. You don't get to trot out the insipid, mindless, tendentious talking points about how you are morally or intellectually superior when every "solution" you proffer is destructive and is based upon forcing others to do your bidding. You don't get to decide whose job is worth preserving and whose isn't and still claim the moral high ground.

Quote of the Day II

How Bad Was Hillary's Role in Whitewater/Castle Grande?

Well as Paul at PowerLine reminds us it was pretty damn bad. Really she should have gone to jail along Webb Hubbell but then all records having to do with Hillary's role in the scam mysteriously disappeared for several years...

Romney vs. Holyfield, Salt Lake City, May 15

It's on. And yes this is real. I tried to come up with a nice rhyming moniker for the fight but SLC is a tough one to work with...

...[Mitt] Romney is slated to fight former heavyweight boxing champion Evander Holyfield in the marquis event during a several-bout evening at the Rail Event Center near the Union Pacific Depot in Salt Lake City on May 15.

"It will either be a very short fight, or I will be knocked unconscious," Romney quipped in an interview recently. "It won't be much of a fight. We'll both suit up and get in the ring and spar around a little bit."

ISIS Starting to Have a Tough Time

Internal criticism is not the only problem ISIL is facing in 2015. ISIL has recently suffered prominent defeats in Iraq and Syria as well as continued rebellions in both countries. Even the Syrian Army is retaking ground from ISIL. The Kurds are defeating ISIL forces outside Kobane in Syria and near the Iraq border. In Iraq Kurds, Iraqi soldiers and Sunni and Shia militias are both stopping ISIL attacks and pushing back ISIL forces outside of Mosul, Kirkuk and Tikrit. An offensive to retake Mosul is expected before June. Meanwhile air attacks not only continue but are more frequent and more damaging. This makes it more difficult to stockpile supplies or move large numbers of gunmen quickly. More leaders are being found and killed by these air attacks. Important economic targets like oil refineries are being destroyed. Inside the ISIL run "caliphate" (eastern Syria and western Iraq) there are growing shortages of everything and ISIL is finding that conquest is easier than running an economy. The economic problems fuel the rebellions and desertions and it's a vicious circle that is destroying ISIL from within. The problem with ISIL is that so far it has solved its supply (logistical) problems via looting. But there has been no new conquests to loot for over six months and the stockpiles of plunder taken in 2014 is nearly exhausted. It's another example of the old military maxim, "amateurs study tactics while professionals study logistics." The accountants always win in the end.

'Yippee-ki-yay, Mr. Falcon!'

"This is what happens, Larry! This is what happens when you find a stranger in the Alps!"
"That better be one charming mightyfriendly pig!"
"I have had it with these monkey-fighting snakes on this Monday to Friday plane!"

The Russian Foreign Legion

As of 2015 Russia has made it easier for foreigners to join the Russian military. Now all you have to do is be able to speak passable Russian and have no criminal record and meet physical and educational standards. These recruits join for five years as "contract soldiers" in the military or para-military (Interior Ministry) forces. The navy and air force are particularly short of technically qualified personnel and don't care if the new guys speak with an accent. Successful completion of the five year contract makes it easier for the foreign soldier to become a Russian citizen. Russia had earlier begun accepting foreigners but only those that could prove some connection to the old Soviet Union. By late 2014 only a few hundred foreigners were serving. The new rules aren't expected to bring in many more recruits, but every new one counts as Russia is desperate to attract enough volunteers to be able to eliminate the use of conscription.

...The most successful recruiter of foreigners have been the United States, which recently had about 50,000 non-citizens in service (out of some 2.2 million active duty and reserve troops, about 2.2 percent of all troops). The navy, not the army, has the largest number (nearly half). That's something of a navy tradition, as hiring foreigners to serve on U.S. warships is a custom that goes back over a century. Currently, the proportion of foreigners in the U.S. military is historically low. It's been much higher in the past, often reaching 25 percent or more. This caused alarm, then as now, but there were never a lot of problems with uncertain loyalties.

OMG California Only Has One Year of Water Left

The thing about California water is that 80% of it is used by farmers. So even if every person cuts back their personal usage by say 10%, it would be literally a drop in the bucket as far as overall usage is concerned. If California is really as short of water as the experts claim, then state agriculture will simply have to be cut back. And VDH weighs in as well.

Bride Walks out of Wedding after Groom Fails Math Test

It was my understanding that there would be no math. Apparently, so did a groom in Rasoolabad, Uttar Pradesh, India. He and his bride were partners in an arranged marriage.

The bride suspected that the groom's family had lied to her family about his education. So at the wedding, she presented him with a simple math test that consisted of only one question. The Canadian Press describes it:

How much is 15 plus six?

His reply: 17.

She left immediately. Now they're trying to get the wedding gifts returned

You don't get to trot out the insipid, mindless, tendentious talking points about how you are morally or intellectually superior when every "solution" you proffer is destructive and is based upon forcing others to do your bidding. You don't get to decide whose job is worth preserving and whose isn't and still claim the moral high ground.

137 That Seattle minimum wage story and the comments illustrate why these leftist, socialist, collectivist experiments always end in violence.

It's an ego thing. The leftist can not accept the possibility that the ideology might be wrong, or that the true believer has made a mistake. It is inconceivable that they are wrong.

When the policy fails, it is always the fault of some saboteur. Someone is to blame, never the leftist who then concludes that the saboteur must be found and forced to behave, that people must be forced to make it work. It was why the USSR put up walls, barbed wire on the border with check points and guard towers; to keep people in, to prevent people from escaping. They turned the entire country into a gulag.

140 * recalls Plimpton/Moore match *

Excerpt from the story:
"The two men met at the center of the ring. Then the bell rang to start the action: "He came at me quite briskly," Plimpton remembered, "and as I poked at him tentatively, his left reached out and thumped me alarmingly. As he moved around the ring he made a curious humming sound in his throat, a sort of peaceful aimless sound one might make pruning a flowerbed, except that from time to time the hum would rise quite abruptly, and bang! He would cuff me alongside the head. I would sense the leaden feeling of being hit, the almost acrid whiff of leather off his gloves, and I would blink through the sympathetic response and try to focus on his face, which looked slightly startled, as if he could scarcely believe he had done such a thing."

Moore just kind of used Plimpton as a punching bag. During the second round, in a clinch, Moore whispered in Plimpton's ear, "For God's sake man, just fall down".

Plimpton later remarked on the third round, "That round seemed awfully short".

And prosecuting a Crusade against the islamic middle east could net old Vlad some nice loot in the form of oilfields and warm-water ports.

152 To the leftists in Seattle complaining about the closing restaurants, here is my reply:

If you truly believe you can make a profit while paying 15 dollars an hour and providing full medical, then these closing restaurants are a huge investment opportunity. Buy the restaurants, pay the waiters a living wage, provide full medical, use only renewable energy then use your profits to buy more restaurants and run those the 'right' way.
You have the opportunity to do all the right things you have been advocating for decades. Stop talking about and do it! Show us how! If you are right, then you owe it to the people you would employ. If you don't, you are depriving those wonderful people of living wage jobs and full medical and what sort of good liberal would you be if you did that?

Hmm...I bet if I sell the watches and three cars I could stock another 20K rounds.

Oh, that wasn't the point you were making.

My point was that when the people what type here start impacting your *real* life, it is time to step back. Happens to me whenever I get in an argument with a respected moron. I don't care about the trolls, they can take a flying fuck at a rolling donut. The thing is, It. Just. Doesn't. Matter.

I can type here that I think the US ought to nuke Russia for invading Ukraine. Or I can type that we should all enlist in Russia's new program for foreigners to make the Rodina strong again. Neither is going to happen, and it's just senseless noise.

(b) finally got a nice car
(c) Small but still decent-sized lotto win, allowing me to pay for a Vegas meetup if others want to come
(d) interview for a job with people who might actually hire me
(e) finally got a really nice video camera I can make a movie with, and am hiring Horde members as extras
(f) approval for gender reassignment surgery finally came through

Looking forward to your votes!!

I still bowl better more days than I bowl bad. Even with two different heart issues, I'm still above ground.
I haven't lost my curiosity about the world around me.
As much as I can bitch about all the idiocy around me, I'm still here to bitch.

384 Cicero, buy your own ball. The pro shop will drill it to fit your hand. Definitely get your own shoes. You'll be much more comfortable. Get a couple of lessons from the pro shop. Your scores will increase and you will have a lot more fun. Join a short season (16 weeks) league. Find a nice mixed league (men and women) where there really isn't a lot of pressure to bowl out your mind. Go have fun. As your scores improve, start looking at bowling the local tournaments. They are all handicapped, so even if you are a low average bowler, you still have the chance to cash. Bowling is one of those sports that you can enjoy for a lifetime.

I went from Turbotax to HR Block for taxes -- it read in last year's Turbotax files, but I haven't completed the current year yet, so my assessment is still incomplete.

I went from Quicken to AceMoney for personal finance tracking. It read in all the historical stuff from Quicken fine, but I'm still dorking around with linking the bank auto-updates. It can simulate linking as various versions of Quicken, and the institutions do better with some than with others. You can do manual date-range updates, so I'm reasonably confident in the software.....but it hasn't gotten back to the ease that I had when I foolishly trusted Quicken not to fuck me over.

And, BTW, I hope that Intuit ceases to exist as a company within the next 12 months.

Fair to middling. Reno is actually in what's called a "Rain Shadow". Since they are at the bottom of the Sierra range, what happens is all the snow and rain hit the west side of the mountains and dries out before it gets there. They still get some of the weather, but not like the west side of the range.

445 Bowling balls?

I actually have one, custom drilled for me just a few years ago.
My ex's SIL used to GM a bowling alley & needed people to fill out a league. We got wrangled...
After the season ended, we got "$150" balls, drilled to our specs for free. I wish I left it in the cardboard box I received it in, so I could sell it for $50...

I bet my average is lower than my IQ, which ain't saying much.
haven't bowled in over two years, and doubt I'll ever take the thing out of the closet until I move into a retirement home.

Posted by: shredded chi at March 17, 2015 12:26 AM (9dfN4)

I'm sorry you lost your doctor. I went through it ten years ago & won't bore Horde with details.
I've been going to doctor 35 miles away one way on Southeast Expressway, IMO, one of three worse roads in state for ten years. Ride gives me high BP.

I've spent months asking friend's wife to recommend doctor near me. I've called all & none are taking new patients or they have opening in June-August.
One woman told me of dr. that she knows is accepting new patients. I saw my doctor last Wednesday & have most recent tests & have appt. Wednesday at one & plan to make sure I like her or I'll continue with one 35+ miles away because we are leaving MA for Texas!!!

(b) finally got a nice car
(c) Small but still decent-sized lotto win, allowing me to pay for a Vegas meetup if others want to come
(d) interview for a job with people who might actually hire me
(e) finally got a really nice video camera I can make a movie with, and am hiring Horde members as extras
(f) approval for gender reassignment surgery finally came through


Annnnnddd....

Old Blue gets the cookie. It's (d). Have been told the attorneys I'm interviewing with are VERY interested in me and my transcription skills. So I'm excited.

Having said that... once I can get some financial footing back (assuming of course I get the job), I have definite designs on (b), the meetup part of (c), and the movie part of (e). Will keep you all posted.

473 I am proud to say that the first quote in the ONT is mine --- posted under one of my many internet identities. I never went back to see how it went over because I always try to say my piece and move on, but Livefyre keeps sending me e-mails about that thread being active so it may have drawn flak.

People always let the lefties claim the moral high ground unchallenged and I have owned enough small businesses to understand just how untrue that really is in practice. When you have to let someone go because the government has made the decision for them that their jobs aren't worth having then it really drives the point home.

That makes two posts I have left in comment sections that have been quoted here over the past year or so. Hopefully, one of these days I might write something good enough on my blog to get a link to it too.

499 Thatch, I've mentioned this before, but during a recent campaign, the Qualcomm founder/tycoon cut a radio ad supporting a (defeated, as it turned out) local referendum item to raise the minimum wage.

It was jaw-dropping. He said he had worked as a young kid at his parents' NYC restaurant. And ..... so??? Your point, Mr. Billionaire? Do you speak supply, demand, equilibrium price point? He was, unwittingly, making the case *against* the proposition. But that's how fence-post stupid today's America is (or a large portion of it) - a comically self-refuting ad can run without the backers recognizing it.

Reminds me of another - pinch me, am I really hearing this? - radio moment. A few years back, prior to another election, ads ran with local firefighters essentially making thinly veiled threats that "protection services will not be adequate" if ..... (drum roll) .... they didn't get even MORE money! Proposition was defeated. But that pretty much put the finish touches on my perceptions of "public service" personnel (unionized ones). Simply unbelievable how degraded the civic culture has become just since I was a teenager.

As only Manager Wages have increased for the last 10+ years... while worker wages have actually decreased.

Average Household incomes, are down... because of the type of jobs being created today...

Less people are working full time, than when Obama came into office... and almost all of the job growth, has gone to immigrants...

Minimum wage is not the answer.... but there are some serious problems with the US economy....

517 Whichever year it was (2010?), after voting at the elementary school, I was at the light nearby, waiting for the green. On the open ground at the corner, to my right, two fire-fighters, in their gear, standing holding a "Yes on Proposition X" banner.

Unbelievable. Not that laws matter any more, but how could this be legal? In uniform? The whole thing was so infuriating, and sickening.

I just smiled thinly (polite always) when I glanced over. What was in my mind? Rolling down the passenger side window, and yelling "hey guys, if you don't like the department, do something else! Public service is not Wall Street, and you should be ashamed standing there begging for even more money. The generation just ahead of you would be ashamed of you if they saw this!".

Aside from being polite, why didn't I give them some guff?

Dude, it's 2010. This is not the America of our lives. Those guys work for the state. Don't mess with them. They can take down your license plate. THAT is America as it has become. Spent a lot of time in authoritarian countries .... sickening to even have that thought while in my own neighborhood. Alas.

A lot of the distortions in the US economy right now are due to illegal immigration. By artificially increasing the supply of labor against a static demand, they've driven the price down. Housing markets are also affected, as those 11-30 million extra people (depending on estimate) have to live somewhere, and supply is relatively inelastic. More competition for scarce resources and falling wages has pretty much put the screws to the working class.

Until we restore the rule of law, gain control of our border, and get legitimate free-market capitalism back in operation by clearing a lot of the regulatory burden, the problem is only going to keep getting worse.

There's nothing weird about it. Although porn has been around since probably cave men scratching dirty pictures on the walls and certain societies thought of as puritanical had a of it-such as Victorian England and-it's exploded by the internet, people have existed for thousands of years without it and done fine. In fact, it's probably part of the decline of the culture to try to make people feel bad for not looking at it-"Your're not coo", you've got hand ups. Blah, blah, bah, nonsense.

Marty Robbins?!?!?!?

Little family history here......my dad cannot cannot carry a tune in a bucket. His sense of pitch is undetectable with even the most sensitive instruments. When given "do-re-me-fa-so-la-ti-do" and asked to reply with "re-la", he will not only miss the interval but also the octave.

But I'd grown up hearing him do certain rhythmic shticks under his voice as he was doing something else. Didn't make much sense to me at the time.

.....then my mom found Marty Robbins' "Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs" in a remainder bin somewhere, put it on the record player.....and we discovered that my dad's tuneless inchoate ramblings were actually badly-performed versions of Marty Robbins tunes.

It's just awesome that you did the onstage sound for Marty Robbins.....maybe more than you know.

We destroyed a large part of our industrial base... the part of the economy that actually makes stuff.

And IMO the way you create Wealth, is to make something... or add value to something... not by just moving money from one pile to another pile...

Service economies live off wealth... they do not create wealth... and a large part of the US economy, is now a service economy.

IMO its a question of balance... and we are out of balance...

Nailed it. Say's Law was articulated in one of the first commentaries on Smith's The Wealth of Nations. Simply put, wealth is created by production, when you make something that's worth more than the sum of its parts and the labor that went into building it.

Selling something you've produced is a wealth transfer, trading that new wealth you've created for other forms of wealth. When an entire economy runs on wealth transfer, it essentially becomes a closed system where growth stops. Decline never stops, however, as the system is still subject to the universe's primary law: Entropy. Things break, become obsolete, rot, and rust away.

We're not outproducing entropy, and we've got a constant increase in demand versus relatively static supplies. This does not end well, unless we get production back.

576 So, on another non porny note, I have to go in and talk to my son's history teacher. I haven't actually met him, because my son started in the class after the "Back To Schooll Night" but every interaction I have with him by e-mail has been pleasant. My son loves history and except for some problems with writing- which is not unique to kids with Asbergers-he does well in class. Anyway, her's the issue, This is the third project they have had to do that involved "revolution" With the first one they had to pretend to be a French peasant and develop a flyer explaining the problems of the poor in France. In the second one, they had to pick the leader of a 19th century revolution and make a cereal box explaining what the revolting about and what freedoms were gained. In this last one, he has to design a Faberge Type egg-only it's supposed to be about the Russian revolution. My tart comment to FenelonSpouse was "What, the egg going to open up so that we can there can be a little pop of the Russian family being executed?" I'm sensing a pattern here a (Bill Ayers probably designed the curriculum, right?) and I don't like it, but I don't want to come off as some maniac Rw'er and hurt my son's grade.

Homeschooling is not an option. I did it for two years. He's 15. It's harder for him to listen to what I have to say and because of health issues I can't really do that right now. We also cannot afford to send him to private schoolSo I guess I have to bear with this stupidity. My son is a conservative. It's not like he's buying into this stuff, but what about the parents who don't pay that much attention and don't care?

Personally, I'd be tempted to make a Ukranian-style Easter egg with the Orthodox cross and an inscription like "You forgave, we forgot." But that's partly because I've always wanted to try making Ukraninan Easter eggs.

It's your job to tell him why "Day Zero" is so horrific; why revolutions so often turn out badly, and why the US Constitution is such a brilliant innovation -- and why subverting its plain meaning (as well-documented by the Federalist Papers) is so dangerous.

You could go full Bullworth and have an egg with the resurrected Jesus pop out or have your son display a crushed egg with a note that says "Lots of people die."

641 And if i actually write to the history teacher and say "Can the pop up in the center of the egg be the Russian Royal Family being shot to death or Anasatasia screaming in vain?" he probably won' get the dark humor which is why I think I need to go in in person and discuss it and ask how many more revolutions are they going to glamorize in projects but in a way that's not so heavy hitting.

A newer San Dimas, or an 80's one? I have an '83 san dimas. It was a single humbucker, but some ass hat routed it for a neck pickup. I guess I can't blame them, I use a neck humbucker for shred leads, but still, it was a crime to do that. Jake E Lee owned the one I have for a real short period.

Well for yngwie type leads, or any of that neo-classical style shred the sound IS the neck pickup. A lot of leads may be the bridge pickup, but a good amount of stuff is done on the neck.


Yeah mine was originally bought by jake E lee, but it had the Jackson style headstock, and he wanted the fender style headstock, so he returned it after a short while. The dude who worked at the store scooped it up, then sold it to my other guitar player at the time who kept it probably near 20 years, then I got it from him. I had it for about 12 years. I have a really old Duncan distortion that Seymour himself wound around 30 years ago in it. That's the only pickup I'll use with a Floyd. Its a blow torch.

696 i am pretty tired of how bad this all has gotten. I grew up in North Shore Oahu during the seventies and watching that kid getting beat down reminded me of some of the uglier moments in my life. I never imagined it would become "Kill Haole Day" every day on the mainland. especially in places like ohio and stuff. i have been going to church, prodded by one of the girls who keeps her pony with me. I figured if i was gonna go, i was gonna go to one where i could get the full effect and chose the Full Gospel Church with the African and Tongan fellowships that also meet there.


it has been hope renewing and inspiring. There is a Swahili and a Tongan service every sunday, and a mixed service where everyone who doesnt want to get up early goes, some in dashikis and some clearly cowboys and two marine families, and a whole bunch of Filipinos. the music is great (you cannot beat a Tongan Choir) and the people are real and wonderful too. Every week i have been they have prayprayed for the members of ISIS to be confronted with their evil and repent, and for the people of Ferguson and the United States to be overcome with the spirit of brotherhood and reconciliation. That we might all live together as God's family in peace and sin no more. i had a Kenyan woman shyly take my hand and offer to pray for me if i would pray for her, and frankly this made me want to pray my brains out for her.

i am a sinner. a very confirmed one. And yet here i am planning to try going back on Wedsnesdays maybe for a visit with Jesus two days a week or at least make up for the sundays i miss.


Not everybody is all screwed up. just we are all human and left to our own devices. But its the craziest thing and i keep going back Fenelon, feeling hope and being comforted. i had to tell you because you are one of the few people in the box who really seem to care. So if you are praying for Morons to get saved its funny how it works... i am not sure i want to commit to a building and people but it seems God and i are working our our problematic relationship.

i believe it is possible. they are dying for their lives to have meaning, and killing too... i think that if confronted with their horror and the possibility that they could be forgiven and live in the Kingdom of God some people would drop everything. even some people here who think they are hardasses. its that they think like i once did when i was at my rock bottom that love and a soul and a Kingdom of God, if real, are certainly not meant for them.
I wonder what some really awesome missionaries could do in our inner cities, to tame the wild children before they get to the gangs, and get them over the effects of their broken families. i get this weird feeling somehow the municipalities dont allow much of that any more, or discourage community outreach at least in Los Angeles area. Fenelon, do you know?

721 So I need to go to sleep so I can get up in three hours, (5:30 EST) but I think I'll leave this here for the people interested in Christian spirituality. It was in our bulletin on Sunday, I don't know who wrote it. The only attributor was by "Fred' from a Christian history site, but I, of course, love the writings of Fenelon.

The presence proceeds the plan

For years younger people have asked me how they could know God's plan for their life. While reading Fenelon and other Saints, I find they are not concerned with that question. Their concern is not with the plan but with the Presence. When we have a guide we don't need a map. Without the presence we attempt to work for God instead of letting God work through us. Francois Fenelon said Put side your self interest and simply let God's will enfold around you...Worship him without having to know and see everything. Continue doing the good things that you do since you feel that you should and can do them so easily, but be careful that your extra energy does not lead you into trouble, and above all, live in the presence of God and God will give you all the grace you need. Live your daily life out in the presence of God. God will give you all you need, God's glory and his purpose are the end of all things. You will find happiness there but not as an end in itself. It is all for God.

Keep on praying folks. for those that pray. Grace and peace be with you. See you in a few days, God willing, and if if I'm on the insomnia train again. :^)

Happy Saint Patrick's Day, Patrick was a remarkable man.

726 I'm more pessimistic today about the state of American culture than I think I have ever been.

The straw that broke the camel's back was a triple-blow combination of the Indianapolis beating video, the "restorative justice" in schools article in the NYPost, and the "white privilege" meeting engendered by the W. Kamau Bell incident in Berkeley.

But those are just the final straws; there's an entire haystack of similar straws behind them.

For first time ever, I really would not be surprised if the country devolved into a race war.

But, typical of me, I look not at now, but try to discern the future. Where could this all lead? What is the goal?

It seems fairly obvious that the left is trying -- trying its absolute damnedest -- to engender as much racial resentment as possible. And not just blacks against whites, but white against blacks. The goal seems to be to manufacture entire new generations of racists -- or at least people who harbor a great deal of racial resentment.

Every outlandish fringe fantasy that the left has been pushing for decades is suddenly, in a very short span of time, actually coming true, and becoming official government policy.

Just today Obama hosted an event at the White House to "celebrate" schools that have "improved" their black suspension rates. One of the invitees was some functionary from the Oakland School District. Why? because Oakland implemented Obama's new Federal guidelines to lower the black suspension rate from public school. And it "worked."

How it "worked" is that they simply stopped punishing all the kids who were misbehaving at school. So the suspension rate went down. But the misbehavior rate went way up. The schools went from being merely "bad" and "dangerous" to being uncontrollable anarchy zones.

For implementing this completely insane policy, the administrators are rewarded.

As of this year, although Oakland's overall population is 35% white, the public schools are now only 11% white.

That means that TWO-THIRDS of Oakland white parents -- almost all of whom are liberal or progressive -- keep their kids out of public school. Specifically to keep them away from black kids's violence, threats, tense atmosphere, atrocious academic environment, and relentless "white privilege" shame-mongering.

And that 11% are mostly limited to the elite wealthy mostly-white schools within Oakland.

The end result is a near-total segregation. And this is in the city that constantly brags about being "the most racially integrated city in America."

The reality is the exact opposite.

And this is not due to some crazy rednecks standing in front of schools with shotguns. This is in the most extreme liberal la-la-land.

If the most compliant progressives flee to segregated schools, segregated neighborhoods, segregated social activities, segregated culture, just imagine how much more extreme it is and/or will be with less compliant non-progressives.

And that is just one aspect of race relations in one city. Everywhere you look, in every city, every region, every aspect of society and culture, the racial tension and resentment is escalating, escalating, escalating, primarily goaded on by the federal government and the power-crazed progressive/communist extremists whose moment has arrived.

America has become a powder keg.

I see no solution, no way out. Obama and his minions have gotten their wish -- Helter Skelter looms.

728 *hisses in sympathy at Hat's owie*

Cato, depends on the school. Minimum requirement for an adjunct most places is 18 hours of graduate credits in the subject you're teaching; most prefer at least the MA/MS. If you want tenure-track, you're probably looking at needing to be ABD before you start the job search. I have no idea what the market's like in history--or in CompSci, for that matter--but there are job boards like Higher Ed Jobs and Chronicle Vita that would give you an idea.
Fair warning, though: adjuncts make peanuts, no matter where you go. I'm still doing other freelance work while I teach. But it's worth it, to me, because the situation at Baptist College of Florida is pretty much ideal for me in every other way. I get to teach classes I enjoy; the students all seem to be good kids; and it's a *teaching* college, which means I don't have the pressure of "publish or perish." (Helps that my immediate superior is one of my best friends, too.)

730 Just have fun Luap. Don't go OCD okay?

Praying for your enemies is a very hard thing, but remember though they want to kill you they are still children of G-d. Homicidal and misguided but still G-d's children.

My go to story in these cases is that of Jacob DeShazer. He was one of the eight Doolittle Raiders captured by the Japanese. Three of his fellow Raiders had been shot by the Japanese. Another died due to malnutrition. All locked in isolation. Jacob hated the Japanese with all his heart. Jacob wanted a copy of the Bible. After much pestering his captors gave him a Bible and he devoured it. And as he was doing it, the scales of hate fell from his eyes and he say his captors in a different light. He suddenly felt compassion for them, because they had never been shown a different way so brutality was all they could do. He started to pray for them, day after day he prayed. Then he says one day he heard a voice telling him to stop praying. That day was Aug 9th, 1945.

But his story does not end there. He came home and became an ordained minister. And promptly went back to Japan to preach the Word. IIRC he founded 33 churches in Japan.

My personal challenge is thus; if Jacob can do that with people who killed his friends and tortured him, how can I not try to match 1/10th of his efforts?

The reason they never connect the dots is because all of their movements reject history. They believe that they know better, and that their pet ideas can change human nature, thus all of previous experience is null and void. The Devil whispers confirmation and stokes their egos, and history comes up with another awful rhyme for the previous verse.

Until people learn that human nature is eternal and that you can't improve it with top-down imposition, it'll keep happening. Change can only come from within.

749 I wonder how much of the chaos we now see is due to the fact that the central government actively prevents self organization among people in the midst of the chaos.


If you look at most of humanity over most of history, chaos is actually pretty unusual. People tend to get together and organize their activity. Sadly, this organization often takes the form of a warlord and his armed cronies dominating the local serfs and expropriating most of what they have. Still, the self organization of Americans is one of the things that de Toqueville comented on and I think that you can make a pretty good case that the Texas war for independence was fought by a bunch of people who organized themselves into an effective government and army.

======I had fretless put away in a closet for awhile. some offbrand thing I bought just so I would have a fretless when I felt like it. when I put an axe away for awhile I always loosen the strings.

so the other day I get invited to go to the local U and play with a jazz combo that is obviously desperate for a bass player. So last night I go to the closet to pop out the fretless and see if I can become reacquainted.
damn bridge had popped off -- all 4 screws were complete pulled out of the holes. dinky little things. the nut also had popped loose and was laying in the case.
fun fun fun.

776 so today I had one of those gubmint things ---


I had to call soc security when my wife passed and stop her disability checks. so they made me set up a telephone appointment, and the earliest date they had was today.


well, after I spoke to them I got a call from her credit union cuz SS had notified them they were going to claw back her last direct deposit, and sure enough they did.


so I get on the phone with them today and they give me this standard spiel about answering questions under penalty of perjury. then we do this little Q-n-A bit for awhile so I can get a $250 death benefit. yup, penalty of perjury threats over $250 bux. fun.


then comes the best part -- turns out I have an underpayment -- so I asked how much. yup, the same amount they took out of her account. and, that is no surprise at all -- they pay a month behind, so it was always supposed to be hers. so they are going to send me a form to get the underpayment back.


so, they have a group of people that go around taking the last payment back from folks, a group of people making you sit at home waiting for a phone call, a group of people sending folks forms to get their underpayments back after they took them away, and probably a group of people processing underpayment forms for the money they took back so they can send it to you again.

One of the assumptions behind SS is that people cannot be trusted to save their own money. But it sounds like they are trying mightily hard not to give you access to your money anyway.

Seems, if given a choice I'd at least have had more fun blowing my own money on myself, than having it sucked into the vortex you describe.

I have this general thought about the establishment R's these days:
when a noble soldier fights and is captured by my side, we will exclude him from the remainder of the war. he will not be mistreated, and when the war is over he will be released to go live a peaceful life of his choosing back in his home country.
when someone from my side is a traitor he will be shot or hanged.

Word. Cut the cable years ago and don't regret it. Don't even listen to news on the radio much anymore, for that matter--especially not since the time (last year?) when my dad and I caught a report about economic numbers that used the adjectives "solid" and "robust" for... low single-digit percentages. We laughed.
I do try to stay informed, but I can't be the news junkie I was during the Bush years. There's too much to be outraged about, and I have to spend my limited energy on keeping the bills paid.

And speaking of limited energy (and patience), I think I'm fed up enough with this project to justify stopping for the night. Later, taters.

805 A number of people are reporting that they used to be news junkies but now all the news only puts them in risk of rage stroke.


I have found that I am a lot less pissed off since I cancelled cable and got a Roku Box. It has Sky News so I can watch the British take on news. They actually seem to have a less biased take on US news than most US news organizations and when they get some strange take on things, it is a kind of odd British viewpoint. One of my favorite examples is a reporter in the US explaining to the anchor in London that in the United States if you try to grab a policeman's gun, you are very likely to be shot dead. The anchor seemed to react to this enlightening new bit of information as if it had never occurred to him before with a kind of nod.

Exactly. One knows what's at issue anyway, so reading the details of a new instance wouldn't inform, only aggravate. Like the hate crime story in the prior thead. I know that would just ruin the rest of the day and not tell me anything new.
