On This Thanksgiving, I'm Grateful For the Gullible Goons of Salon


[H]e wasn't alone on his righteous indignation. Conservative blogger Ace of Spades wrote an entire treatise on how to deal with the miscreant liberals in your family when they use any of these "Vox explainer" talking points. It's very elaborate and very, very serious....

As I said, it's all very elaborate. He goes on to lay out a complicated set of tactical arguments designed to tie the foolish liberal up in knots. It is obviously something that merits a lot of serious thought and preparation. Clearly, it's extremely important.

Pearls before dum-dums.

As Aldous Huxley obsevered: "Every man is the author of his own pwnage."

Incidentally, Charles Cooke's piece was also panned by this Very Intelligent Pyrsyn, as trying for humor with "mixed results." That must mean it's pretty good.

Ace, I really enjoyed your piece on ThanksgivingMan! This is by far the liveliest most entertaining yet informative site I've come across and I am truly glad I found it.
Thanks to you and all your cobs who make this place so awesome!!!

22 Dear Salon,

The reason we conservatives get annoyed is because you brain dead idiots can't just enjoy being with family and friends without trying to shove your immoral, illogical, evil philosophy down our throats.

In short, fuck off.

Great to see you again, all my love,

Weirddave

23 We're going out for a nice TG dinner the next down over. I will make a point of standing up and denouncing the lack of representation by the Commanche people at the restaurant (I'm sure my Delaware/Cherokee wife will endorse that) and complaining that the turkey is not served with culturally-inclusive jalapenos.

Oh wait, that's my younger brother in Sweden wondering why his wife and kids won't leave the house in Stockholm anymore.

Salon made its initial public offering of Salon.com on the NASDAQ in 1999.

In November 2002, the company announced it had accumulated cash and non-cash losses of $80 million, and by February 2003 it was having difficulty paying its rent, and made an appeal for donations to keep the company running.

On October 9, 2003, Michael O'Donnell, the chief executive and president of Salon Media Group, said he was leaving the company after seven years because it was "time for a change." When he left, Salon.com had accrued $83.6 million in losses since its inception, and its stock traded for 5¢ on the OTC Bulletin Board.

Business model and operations

Salon has been unprofitable through its entire history. Since 2007, the company has been dependent on ongoing cash injections from board Chairman John Warnock and William Hambrecht, father of former Salon CEO Elizabeth Hambrecht.

As Rush has been going on and on about, because apparently a lot of people just don't really get it, everything is political to the leftists. Every single fucking thing. Nothing outside the state, as their totalitarian forebears proclaimed. Every aspect of life and the material world is political.

The purpose of everything is political. Thanksgiving Dinner? Opportunity to advance the agenda, duh.

Anything they look at will have political implications. Take a set of plans for building a, hell, doghouse. They'll see symbols of racial and patriarchal oppression in those plans. And homophobic heteronormalizing in there as well.

A lot of our people, being normal, just can see this and take a lot of what these SJW say at face value. No, everything they do has a political meaning, and that's the prime purpose.

The "rashes" that these treat are serious things, like psoriasis, which is itself an autoimmune disease, causing your immune system to attack your skin. A type of arthritis, similiar to RA, but not the same, oft goes along with it.

Although they want me to, I've not taken them because the immune suppression is much worse, and with what I do, getting kicks and cuts all the time, raging infections could develop.

The side effects are bad, but the disease they are treating is worse, when used properly.

Not much to hope for. These people can't be educated or enlightened. The only solution is to eradicate them. "

Have AMZ Prime and heard about and checked out The Man in the High Castle . Has anybody watched it -- opinions? FYI I am not Sci Fi fan (so this is about as far as I get with that) but big on history

Second, any good news source out there? With the exception of Special Report I miss nothing about Fox. Right now I just occasionally check out Sky News (have no antenna or access to local) and the radio -- visuals are not a big deal for me and clips of the major events are usually available.

Yeah, they're frickin' obsessed with teh McCarthyism and blacklisting.

The hilarious part is that the Hollywood blacklist wasn't a case of government persecution, the government NEVER forbade them to work in films, it was the Studios themselves that kicked them to the curb.

385 The other night, we were wondering just who is facilitating the transfer of illegal ISIS oil into the market, laundering that oil essentially. Crude isn't something you smuggle across in jars and use directly. It has to be refined and processed. No small operation that requires infrastructure.

Turkey is up to its eyeballs in it, and now I just read a piece at ZH naming names. The ISIS oilman is Bilal Erdogan, son of el Presidente. He's US edumacted, masters from Kennedy School, Hahvad dahling, and a stint at the World Bank before moving on to run a "marine transport company". This company is apparently the dirty bird in running ISIS oil.

They say the Russian jet was shot down over one of the corridors where Bilal moves his illicit oil. That would explain the shootdown, if they thought Ivan was going target the Turkish side.

Posted by: Merovign, Dark Lord of the Sith at November 26, 2015 04:59 PM (5P63C)


Lefties have to rewrite history because no one in the past has ever lived up to their laughable, self-righteous standards (that none of them live up to today, either). Usually leftists like to deal with this by just ignoring history .,.. but when they have to look at history they are, thus, compelled to rewrite it.

it's like countries. Leftists will claim that America sucks and is the most evil country on Earth - with pretty much every shithole around being better and nicer and "more natural" ... but they'll never leave this country ... even as they proclaim it to be the worst thing ever.

425 EconTalk is an outstanding podcast. He talks about people comparing the ideal theory of whatever axiom you subscribe to, and compare it to the reality of whatever is happening. Explaining the uneven playing-field that people set up in their mind, because they are human, is valuable.

Do you think the government should provide proposition X? A high percent of people say yes. Do you think the DMV should provide proposition X? A lower number say yes. You say IRS, congress, the President, the Supreme Court, or literally any element of the government at all, and you will get lower numbers. Getting people to admit that the government isn't more than the sum of it's parts is a beginning step.

More people should have been skeptical about ACA, and the country is doomed if it stays naive.

427 I had a micro-debate recently with a liberal about size-of-government. I did point out that, if the richest country in the world can't pay for it, it might be too expensive.

They replied that it's not that we can't pay for it, it's a question of priorities.

They didn't mean, as it turns out, what to spend money on *within* government, they wanted society to spend less on other things. And more on what THEY wanted.

While pointing out this is the ultimate in selfishness, I also pointed out that unfunded liabilities were such that, to pay it off, we'd have to spend nothing on entertainment, housing, transportation, medical care, and food for at least two decades.

Ultimately, they will vote the same and think the same, because they rewrite reality on the fly.

Do the fake refugees want to farm their own food and make their own clothes like the Pilgrims, or do they want to sponge off others?

Did the Pilgrims seek to colonize France and Germany so as to collect entitlements?

See, to make this equation, Obama fixates on a morally IRRELEVANT attribute (Pilgrims and fake refugees both want to come to this continent), and ignores relevant differences, like what they each believe and do, because he is a vile pie of dogshit, and he knows his followers are retards who will eagerly slurp up the most feeble rationalization as long as it props up their narrative.

The 1956 version looks good, too. And while I was looking up old movies at imdb...





Planet Earth (1974)

A man awakens from suspended animation and finds himself in the
22nd century, where he finds that women rule the world and that men are
slaves called Dinks.



starring John Saxon



Posted by: Soothsayer the autoresponsebot at November 26, 2015 06:49 PM



Yeah, they're good. Definitely worth checking out. I wouldn't say that either are truly great, or anything. It's not the fault of the movies, it's just I don't know that a cinematic version of the book can do it justice. It doesn't lend itself to the film format easily. But, they do a decent job, all things considered. The 84 version does have Hurt and Burton going for it, which helps selling the truncated format.

Haven't seen that Planet Earth flick. Sounds interesting. John saxon is always good value.

No major studio would dare make 'Camp of the Saints'. There is a Hollywood blacklist and all participants in that effort would be sure to be on it. By the way, they are making a sure-to-be-hagiographic film about Dalton Trumbo, screenwriter and erstwhile fellow traveler, starring Bryan Cranston of 'Breaking Bad' fame.

Any culture that would make a hero out of Dalton Fucking Trumbo yet completely ignore director Theo Van Gogh, who really did pay the price for artistic freedom, is rotten to the core.

Whoa. It takes 45 minutes just to cook chicken drumsticks in an oven. There is no way a turkey would be done in that amount of time. Unless it was pre-cooked and you are just reheating?

20 minutes per lb. is the guideline for planning a meal, but must be adjusted for factors such as turkey size, cooking temp, oven efficiency, etc. And generally a cooking thermometer with a probe is the best way to determine if it is "done", shooting for a target temp of 160 to 180, depending on whether you are measuring the light or dark meat and where you place the probe (best place is about 2.5" into the breast, but away from the bone).

Posted by: The Thankful Hat at November 26, 2015 07:24 PM (vBeA5)


Basting does not affect the turkey, only the skin. And the opening and closing of the oven makes the cooking/roasting process much more problematic.

If you want your turkey to retain enough moisture during the cooking process with less fuss and bother, you just need to brine it first. There are many recipes out there, but the one I have used for many years with great success is Alton Brown's. Which makes sense, since he based his recipes on a careful study of the science behind the cooking.

Basic principle: use a brine to get salt into your turkey, which causes it to absorb more moisture (and also flavors, when you add some to the brine). Then, when cooking, the turkey releases some of the extra moisture, but not enough to dry out. Note: the salt from a properly prepared brine does not make the turkey taste salty.

Here endeth the sermon.

It sickens me to see so many on Turkey's side...and so many muslims and leftists who support muslims on twitter who OPENLY support terrorism.

You don't have to like Russia or Putin, but the Turks and Erdogan are terrorists and all around rotten people.

689 Away from home & family for the first Thanksgiving in a long time. In Minneapolis, for daughter's Irish dance competition. Went to a wonderful steakhouse called Manny's for dinner. Bacon appetizer - 1 & 1/4 inch slabs of bacon perfectly cooked (crispy and charred on the ends). Bone-in filet + 85 day dry-aged, bone-in ribeye. Sautéed mushrooms and truffle fries. All shared among wife and kids. Great service, not stuffy at all. Best steaks I've ever had. Ridiculously flavorful.

It weren't cheap, but it was as good a Turkey Day as we could ask for away from family and home.

the Salon piece is proof positive that they mean every word of the talking points.

Step 7 of the progressive douchenozzle manual: when caught, declare that it was all just satire (or post-ironic) and the poor thugly conservatard is just too dim to appreciate it.

Flounce, rinse, repeat.
