1 Boy, that escalated quickly.

Wife and I were picking up Little from Boy Scouts. They'd asked us to be there so the Scoutmaster could speak to us about Little's behavior at a recent camping trip (mostly just a 13 YO boy being a 13 YO boy).

And then I went berserk (which is JUST EXACTLY what you should do when someone is waiting to talk to you about your son's behavior).

Gingy and I were standing to the right of the group of scouts, who were seated on the floor wrapping up their meeting. We were right by the door, which was open because it is a fairly mild night. The Scoutmaster is holding an eagle feather and talking to the boys about a pair of bald eagles they had observed on their last trip, a nesting pair that had been there for the last 5 years, their egg laying habits, etc..etc..good, Boy Scout stuff. And then he said " Back in the 60s and 70s, the eagle population was in trouble because their eggs were being damaged by humans using a chemical called DDT..".

I saw red. Literally. I pushed off from the wall, stormed out of the building. Once I was outside, I started pacing, angrily, muttering to myself (not quietly, I'm afraid, I'm sure some people in the church could hear me) "I can't believe they are teaching that fucking bullshit Silent Spring crap...." My wife followed me out.

"DID YOU HEAR..?"
"Shut up"
"BUT THAT'S.."
"Shut. It.";
"..."

She went back in, embarrassed (fair). I stormed around the building five or six times, trying to cool off. Then the meeting ended and we had our meeting about proper behavior at scouting events (awk-ward...)

I apologized to the Scoutmaster. I was out of line. It probably only happened because I hadn't eaten yet, and this was well after 8, but that's no excuse. And I DID leave, rather than making a scene at the meeting.

But I'm sorry, Rachel Carson is one of the top 4 or 5 most evil people of the 20th century. Fine, Hitler, Stalin, Mao, worse, got it, but the death toll from Carson's absolutely false, scientifically refuted, and utterly discredited Silent Spring dwarfs Hitler, and probably the other 2 as well. Carson vies with Margaret Sanger for 4th, and it's a pick 'em. And it CONTINUES TO THIS DAY! Millions of people, most of them children, die of malaria in Africa every year because of her lying screed. I couldn't have been more shocked if the Scoutmaster had assigned The Communist Manifesto as required reading for the Citizenship in the Nation badge. I have Little in Scouts because I expect them to teach him good, traditional values, and this had the same effect on me that a priest in his pulpit reading verses from The Satanic Bible might have on a devout churchgoer.

All in all, not a good night.

43 Hey everybody.

Back in the early 1970s, my parents actually ordered the Columbia House Collection that was I think 3 or 4 LPs long, Greatest Hits of the 60s (at least I think that was the title).

Only later on did I realize, it was a compilation only of artists on CBS records.

Having said that however, there were some great songs on it, including "I Don't Wanna Play House" by Tammy Wynette, "Little Green Apples" by O.C. Smith, "Sunny" by Bobby Hebb... it was a nice, well-rounded compilation IMHO.

57 DDT was never about killing the birds.

The Left consider millions upon millions of dead sub-Saraharan Black people, mostly children IIRC, less important than the life of a few birds.

Yet, the Left happily demand wind and new solar installations that slaughters birds, in some instances burning them to death in mid-flight. Why? To run installations that typically have diesel engines running at full capacity (already generating all the electricity they need) "just in case" the wind doesn't blow strong enough or there is cloud cover... all so rich rent-seekers can engage in strip-mining for toxic metals in order to get a few tax-payer bucks.

Thus, the Left believe that government handouts to billionaires is more important than Black children.

67 WD, I recently tried to sign up for "Senior Semester" or whatever it's called at one of the local colleges. It's a freebie if you are over 29 (by a wide margin).

Anyway, during the sign up at the registration office (apparently, they have not heard of this interweb thingy) one of the papers I was supposed to sign basically said I agreed that they could throw me out (any *senior* really) at any time for being disruptive. I inquired what was meant by disruptive and did the kiddies normally there have to sign the same.

Nope - they did not. And disruptive meant whatever some communist, balding, pony-tailed instructor wanted it to mean.

Apparently, they've had some trouble with highly experienced seniors telling Skippy the WonderProf that he is an idiot for believing and teaching commonly held myths.

There is a lot of stupid going around.

Sam Raimi created a Xena spin-off show called Cleopatra 2525 that used a modified version of that song for it's intro theme. He took the Xena recipe: scantily clad babes, action and humor but put it in sci-fi. Only lasted a few episodes but I liked it.

My understanding from a native American is that they can obtain them, but have to get them through a federal agency. Even they can't just keep feathers that they find, they have to apply to the government.

"Itou Junji: Collection" -- Nice creepy horror here. You'll probably be inclined to burn all dolls in your house after watching.

"Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san" -- Girl likes boy and teases him relentlessly; boy is to thick to realize she is trying to show affection.

"Märchen Mädchen" -- Bookworm girl gets transported to magical school; she spends most of her time running around naked with strategically placed objects to keep things presentable (for the TV version at any rate...)

Also, "Pop Team Epic" is what happens when you combine s**tposting, memes, drugs, and the Japanese...

276 "Billy Don't Be a Hero" makes me think of riding in the back of the family pickup on the way to Florida. The truck bed had a cap on it, and we loaded a mattress and all the luggage back there. The truck was a "crew cab" -- four doors and a full-sized rear seat up front -- but it was still worth it riding in the back, away from most of the siblings.

Except my sister. Who had a cassette player. And "Billy Don't Be a Hero".

I had the unfortunate experience today of seeing "Bob the Builder" stories as our grandson watched them.

WHAT A FLUSTERCUCK OF EPIC PROPORTIONS THOSE STORIES ARE!

To begin with, there is a song with the refrain, "Can we build it? Yes, we can!" that brought the SCOAMF and his 2008 campaign slogan to mind. But that's trivial by comparison with other messages therein.

Got a spoiled rotten young'un who wants a fancy treehouse constructed in less than half a day? Sure, why not?

Got a workforce who feel compelled to engage in non-productive, if not destructive, behavior while on the job? Sure, why not?

Got a workforce whose grasp of workflow and responsible decision making is non-existant? Sure, why not?

Got a workforce who botch or damage your product so that multiple reworkings are necessary, often to the gross inconvenience of everyone else on the crew? Sure, why not?

In short, I'd not only ban it, I'd burn the tapes / DVDs of this pernicious piece of shit.

"Walk Away Renee" by The Left Banke.

What's weird is, I kind of like the melody and even the lyrics, but the instrumentation just sounds incredibly screechy and maudlin IMHO.

Kind of similar with Joe Meek and The Tornados' 1962 hit, "Telstar." (Which btw, is considered the *very first* British Invasion hit.) Good grief, that Clavioline synthesizer they used sounds to me like a billion flies buzzing at once. Yeesh!

I wasn't surprised when I learned that Joe Meek was more or less certifiably insane and killed himself in 1967, after murdering his landlady. (Didn't help that his Telstar royalties were tied up in British court for years.)

Posted by: TheQuietMan at January 11, 2018 10:56 PM (SiINZ)

Very much so. But "Love Will Keep Us Together" is profoundly nostalgic for me. I remember hearing it on the radio as we drove back to Billings, Montana, after a day of house hunting in Cody, Wyoming. Dad had been transferred by his company, and I knew I would soon be leaving my friends, my school, my life. That this moment happened while the sun was setting over Rattlesnake Mountain only made it more poignant. 1975 was a tough year for me.

They've found what appear to be dildos going back to prehistoric times. Hell, I forget the details of where and when, but it well before Sumer.

And then, back in the old days before photography, porn was a lot of work. Had to draw it.

There was some artist, I forget the name (maybe I'll do some research) who drew a lot of such "art" back the 19th century ( I think ).

He had a some strap-on scenes.

Posted by: BourbonChicken at January 11, 2018 11:06 PM (rnAwa)

388 271 So, watched the first episodes of the following:

"Citris" -- Apparently a schoolgirl can be turned into a lesbian by being sexually assaulted by another lesbian or something...

"Itou Junji: Collection" -- Nice creepy horror here. You'll probably be inclined to burn all dolls in your house after watching.

"Märchen Mädchen" -- Bookworm girl gets transported to magical school; she spends most of her time running around naked with strategically placed objects to keep things presentable (for the TV version at any rate...)
=========
"Citris" is the validation of everything Milo Yianoppolis has said about lez romance fiction. Namely, it's porn for straight people. Expect SJWs to criticize it for the predatory stepsister.
"Itou Junji" is so creepy my friend whom I join for Monday anime viewing refuses to add it to the viewing list.
"Marchen Madchen" is supposed to revolve around magic via derivation from fairy tales. Streaker girl is supposed to draw power from Cinderella. (I am not making this up!)
"Card Captor Sakura: Clear Card Hen" is a sequel 20 years after the original. (How Hollywood of them!) It is still good.
'Grancrest Senki" another story from the guy who did "Lodoss Wars" so it has great potential! Sassy heroine and upright hero will be fun to watch.

439 suppose the most troubling part of the whole shithole comment, regardless of who actually said it, is discriminating against people from shitholes. Presumably the problem with admitting people from shitholes is that they will bring their shithole moral, ethical, and behavioral practices with them. Lots of people have noted that that is likely to degrade the fabric of our nation long term.

The more problematic issue is that once you recognize that allowing these people into the country is bad for the country then how do you justify letting people from domestic shitholes travel freely within the country?

493 Roy Clark was also a shit-hot private pilot, slinging his notoriously reputed "pilot-killing" Mitsubishi MU-2 twin turboprop hither and yon, with nary a mishap.

It's not that the MU-2 was a particularly lethal airplane, in and of itself.

But, it really demands "jet" levels of training and familiarization to master it's high landing speeds, unique "engine out" procedures and other bits that the average General Avation, VFR & Twin Rated pilot, might not yet possess as "tools & skills".

Given that his mind and fingers could process notes with the pick n' fretboard faster than the eye could see... I think him "staying ahead" of the MU-2 wasn't really a challenge.

Other pilots who'd flown with him, report an utterly smooth flying experience, a professionally handled aircraft, pre-flight planning and dead-on the numbers navigation and airmanship.

The late, great Arnold Palmer had the same reputation, flying his own Learjet in his tournament heyday.

Often, extreme greatness in one area paves the way for the same, in other arenas.

I don't think Mr. Clark does his own flying anymore.

But I'd imagine he can still send a guitar on heavenly flights of musical glory.

Sorry LP, got to the party late. If you digitally scan in the original pencil illustrations, you can adjust the highlight mid tones and shadow levels in Photoshop. From there you can do color shifts, overlays, etc. hope this helps.

After yesterday's press conference, I took that as reassuring that he still gets it.

America is an all around better country than any of the others.

The others are worse because the people who live there have made worse choices, frequently all around. Especially the open borders crowd in europe.

Those people aren't going to make better choices just because they're here. They are who they are and geography didn't cause it.

Ergo they should be welcomed to remain where they are or if they absolutely must loot a socialist welfare state, they can move to europe.

603 532 A couple of weeks ago there was some discussion about The Outsiders. Watching the movie wrap up now and for some reason, I'm finding it more compelling than I did when I saw it many years ago.

Maybe getting older softens you in a few ways. Also neat to see Patrick Swayze, Matt Dillon et al when they were very young. And good to see the Greasers kick the obnoxious socs tails.

Showed The Outsiders to my niece a couple years ago 'cause it was a book & film that her mother and I enjoyed back in the day. She got really into the movie and said it was very intense. And yeah, all the young star power in that movie, no wonder it went over well.

The nadir of music.

When Grunge hit, lots of good bands either broke up, tried to "go Grunge", or fading into obscurity. True, a lot of the "hair Metal" bit the dust, but by 1990, they were already fading, with 1990 being a great year musically (Slayer's "Seasons in the Abyss", Megadeth's "Rust in Peace", Anthrax's "Persistence of Time", one of Judas Preist's two flawless albums, "Painkiller", &c., &c.)

One of the reasons it was so bad was that (most) people then didn't have the luxury of online resources to find anything good. The Metal mags disappeared, Headbanger's Ball was unceremoniously yanked, KNAC went off the air, and any old tape trading circuits had generally fallen off the face of the Earth for the most part.

As bad as today's pop-music is, there are plenty of ways to find the good stuff. Heck, YouTube has actually been a boon for lots of good bands starting out, and for older bands to (re)introduce themselves.

Some guy in his twitter thread calls it a "false dichotomy". Like he doesn't understand what a logical complement is.

The "middle case" is that there could be a country that is so bad you need 17 years of leave from, but no one can call it a shithole--not because it's not, but just because that's not nice.

And calling it a "dichotomy", kind of also implies that there is a precise definition of a shithole. Yes, I understand that litterally nobody is using Haiti itself as a toilet.

AKA, 'Voter Registration Strategy'

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at January 12, 2018 12:02 AM (y3sT9)




It is far more insidious than this, and much worse than most have dared imagine.

Obummer pipelined multiple bus loads of illicitly imported, poverty ridden, serfs-on-the-half-shell, mostly very "purple" areas, which were known to be teetering on the brink between (D) & (R).

Certainly, all of the scheming traitors in the Obummer Admin took as granted that these people would be too "under the microscope" to get away with voting, at least in the immediate cycle or three after their "settlement."

What's forgotten here though, is that they ARE counted, and that IMMEDIATELY, into U.S. Census demographic maps.

Don't confuse this with the actual U.S. Census, every decade.

The Census info that's mapped by the department, immediately affects the allocation of U.S. funds via old bills such as the Voting Rights Act, Civil Rights Act, etc, plus directs certain regulatory agencies as to how and where they spend their Congressionally Allocated Buxs.

Thus, a Democrat controlled, firehose of money goes directly into those contested districts, ALL of it favoring various SJW "Help the Immigrant" programs, Voter Registration (D)rives, and other flow(s) of moneys, 98% of which, directly boosts liberal priorities of every kind.

AND THEN, when the Every Decade Census actually happens? Even though New Immigrant Suarez can't vote, she and her 10,000 fellow arrivals, can rip away the representation from some small, rural CONSERVATIVE district, and add a newly gerrymandered seat right smack dab into the center of a Democrat controlled Welfare Economied Stronghold.

Who needs "votes", when you can shift whole Congressional districts, just by bussing in such illicit, wholesale population changes?

The "voter regristration" issue, really, is a red herring, when compared to the redistrictiong BOMB, which is the real, existential threat.

If your idea of light reading is the interim Census reports (required, as you say, for apportionment of mucho money) it is not surprising.

The "typical" poor person in America today is not from an inner city or Appalachia. The face of poverty (and disease) in America is an immigrant or child of immigrants (Census assiduously avoids questions of legal status), with low or no education, who speaks little or no English (mainly Spanish or Nahuatl).

Well the good thing about Napster et al is that it exposed a wide variety of people to music that might not otherwise be able to afford. Some of them did in fact buy the albums they downloaded.

But it borked the previous (gross and unfair as it was) set up for the record labels. Record labels stopped looking for new talent or it sure seemed that way.

Hell, there are hardly any new bands compared to the mid-90's. We used to stumble upon folks learning to play in every damn coffee house from Spokane to Seattle. Now it's pretty thin on the ground, musically.

And this is the crux of the matter. It is like the stories of guest lecturers giving talks on free market economics and college students being baffled and surprised- they have no idea how little they know. They have rarely if ever been exposed to it.

Silent Spring is taken as orthodoxy. Let's also consider another question: would it have been such a bad thing to have a negative impact on bird species in order to eradicate malaria in Africa? Personally, humans are the one species that gives a crap about the others except as food. I'd say in the long run, even if it cratered the populations of certain birds, it would have been better to have gotten rid of one of histories' deadliest plagues.

I could take you to a place in British Columbia, about a quarter-mile off a paved highway, where bald eagles gather in trees along the river bank during the salmon run. Gather by the hundreds. They fly down to the river, snag a dead or dying salmon, and fly back up to their tree, and eat their fill. Then they drop the rest of the salmon. Most of them drop to the ground, but some wind up draped over branches. And they rot there. And whatever decay bacteria are at work there, the glow in the dark, faintly.
And the stink of the rotting salmon, and the stink of the eagle shit, why, it's so strong you can hear it. If you want eagle feathers, you could pick them up by the gross, because eagles shed them, just like a dog sheds hair.

"My little Belgie."

On the PBS Masterpiece series, 'The Duchess of Duke Street' (about a poor woman rising up and running a posh hotel in London pre- through post WWI), it showed how the government was trying to take in Belgian refugees after the Germans invaded at the beginning of the war. The German atrocities then committed have now been largely forgotten but they were a foreshadowing of things to come decades later. So the British government had a big push to have people 'take in a Belgian refugee' into their homes. The Duchess takes one into her hotel, whom she then always refers to as "'My little Belgie." I think the Belgie committed suicide, something to do with witnessing/surviving said atrocities, and the Duchess took in no more Belgian refugees. Suicide is very bad for business.

I don't know if she forgot she had never admitted this before, or got lazy and too comfortable, or what. Makes me wonder if she lied to the FBI too. It's just so weird she would say all this now with the movie and the sympathy she was getting. I don't think she meant to say it.

The most American president in a very long time, as far as direct communication. Hilarious.


Of course there has to be a lot more to the cancellation. Get the sense that UK's govt. feels besieged - nearly overwhelmed by idiocy from Europe and most of the UK, for some reason feeling obliged to go through the motions of taking offense etc. for every bit of direct unapologetic Trumpism from the US, and divided and weak (like the GOP), especially weak-minded and weak-willed.

734 UK needs us far more than the other way around - of course, sadly, the UK has made itself pretty useless, so "needing" them would be academic. But I'd think the Brits would be anxious to get trade talks going, at least.


Wonder if there's anything to the Brit angle on intel community sabotage against Trump. There was an initial reference to this (US perps "off-shoring" some of the dirty work to the UK services), and a probably fake document recently from GCHQ to the UK FM about a surveillance op against Trump. Otherwise, nothing, even with the cottage industry that has sprung up (understandably, thankfully) among non-MSM real journalists examining every tiny aspect of this Mega-Scandal.

735 Shithole:

Definition: A known place where common sense dictates to avoid because of culture, disease or degenerates within its boundaries.

Example: Madagascar is a Shithole because in some cities THEY DIG UP THEIR DEAD EVERY 7 YEARS AND DANCE WITH THE CORPSES IN THE STREET!!!

Thus, not wanting contract the plague or some other killing disease, one could safely say- It's a Shithole...

736 >> $10K she's no money manager like Paris Hilton

Paris already had a fortune didn't she.

Uncle Harvey tried to Harvey her in an amusing story. She was at some damn shindig he was at, and he went crazy over her. He was gonna make her star and all that, come up with me and we'll talk.

She told he to take a hike, but he kept pestering and even followed her into the ladies room as she tried to get away from him. As the Daily Mail story went, he was in there with her hiding in a stall, right at the door, begging her.

They got security in there. Now, if it had been a regular Joe Blow, he would've been cooling his heels in jail. But Harv got away with it.

738 So, so far, no actual WH comment on the "s**t-hole" hysteria?


The Trumpentwitter has nothing on it.


Any merit to the speculation/rumor/suggestion I've seen that Durbin used the word, not Trump?


In any case, almost certainly another win with most of the public that even hears about it, and further agony for the incredibly dumb people who now go under the apparently ironic label of "urban elites".


And Trump's twitter should reassure many that what seemed implausible, was - one comment about how "The Democrats seem intent on people and drugs pouring into our country across the Southern Border, risking thousands of lives in the process".


I sense some distance between that and "I trust you, and I'll sign whatever you send me".


Ha.

I guess the shittiest place I've ever been was some anonymous industrial cities in southern China. Man, outside of tourist areas, China can really really be a shithole. Literally. Like, they still use "nightsoil men" to carry away unbelievable oceans of shit from public toilets 9which themselves consist of actual shit-holes -- holes in the ground where you shit.)

The White House has not denied Trump made the comment, only clarified what he meant by it.

Which of course, is not what the press is running with...they are using it as saying he is racist (my word, not theirs...but same difference.) And that Trump only wants white people.

This was always the calculated risk with Trump...his saying things non-diplomatically. Many people were Never Trumpers, including Ace. And a lot voted for him as a Hail Mary pass...and b/c not Hillary. I can't pretend that was a good word choice, shit hole, no matter how true.

I cringe b/c it overshadows his good work and feeds the hysteria. Still rather have Trump than HRC or Obama or the EU leaders ruining their countries. I just hate seeing him hurt himself and giving the opposition ammunition. But it is what it is, and there will be more gaffes.

Trump is not hurting himself by saying that which everybody, even the Left, knows to be true. He won the election because he is not afraid to call a spade a spade; why would you now deny him that?

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at January 12, 2018 02:12 AM (sD2WN)

766 No, Trump was not a calculated risk.


There was no choice. And I don't just mean the obvious unthinkable Hillary.


Aside from Cruz it was a very sad field - and he had his clear issues as well.


And the main reason Trump got the nom and the WH was the jaw-dropping fact that he simply addressed, vigorously, the main issues of the day, which the GOP has not, and continues to refuse to do. In the astonishing situation of the world's greatest country having a political class fanatically unwilling to deal with the issues of the day, Trump was not a hail-mary, he was an obvious rational choice.


There was not gaffe. However there has been - amazingly - a very limp and lazy communications and political approach on the central issue of mass illegal migration and rule of law. Tonight Trump's tweet, which I quoted above, was an example of of what has been lacking. And it is (uncharacteristic, obviously, for Trump) far too understated. Sad!


There should have been, and still must be, a relentless political offensive to force the opposition - and useless GOP incumbents - to take their toxic, indefensible stands (in favor of crime, lawlessness, race-baiting, and everything else that make up the essence of mass illegal migration).


Trump and co. should establish and maintain such a sustained barrage of ruthless invective against the idiots that they can't catch their breath. Should have done if from the outset. There has never, in decades, been such a perfect alignment, an identity, of good politics and good policy.


In such an environment, today's non-event would be even less consequential than it is (and it's inconsequential).

Just rejection of premises. Mostly.


The concern about the great misinformed, delicate, suicidally stupid masses is not technically unfounded. But in context, it is. Anybody intelligent enough (and it is, very much, a question of practical intelligence, vs. infantile moral narcissism and ignorance) to already understand the US *needs* ZERO immigrants of any kind, has already absorbed but not assimilated immense numbers of legal and illegal immigrants who were not selected in any intelligent way, and that we must restore rule of law, order, and common sense to it all will not suddenly support the racist authoritarians and their insane proposals.


The incredibly stupid, self-righteous, NPR-listening sorts were already forever lost (not just to Trump, but to an America that means anything). Those who have the sense to value results will not change.


The problem with Trump's immigration approach so far is not gaffes, but silence and weak triangulating half-measures (on the political level). The racist authoritarian freaks should be on the defensive 24/7.

786 I have a friend who about four years ago got a one-year temporary job assignment in Bangladesh. So he moved to Dhaka.

While he said in general that he actually liked Bangladeshis (the men, at least -- he said it was nearly impossible to meet or speak to women), who were friendly to him, the nation itself overall was a total shithole. Aside from the dazzling levels of corruption and incompetence in the government (he said literally everyone insists on bribes, daily, for every single task; bureaucrats simply won't do their jobs, even trivial actions, unless you bribe them), the public hygiene is simply heinous beyond belief. EVERYONE pisses in public without the slightest shame, so the whole country smells like urine wherever you go; and furthermore it's actually pretty common for people to just shit in public as well, since there are very few toilets available anywhere. After seeing restaurant employees shitting behind the restaurant where he was eating and not washing their hands afterwards, he stopped eating out altogether and hired a private cook to prepare all his meals at home. But even after doing that, he frequently got food poisoning and terrible diarrhea. Violating every rule of decorum in Islam and Bangla culture, he flat-out asked his cook if she washed her hands after she took a shit. She had no idea what he was talking about; not only did she not wash her hands after taking a shit, she apparently NEVER washed her hands. "Wash my...hands?" she asked, mystified as to the purpose of such a bizarre-sounding infidel ritual.

After that, he literally just bailed on the whole job, and returned home five months early; he just couldn't take it there one more day.

787 and Napster's rise a few years later pretty much killing a lot of album sales.

Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards now with TLJ review linkage at January 12, 2018 12:16 AM (xJa6I)


Whatever album sales are lost through downloading (and I don't think they are, in the end) it's more than made up for in the increase in live tickets that all the people who download the albums free want to go see (and have to pay for).

Bands are richer, now, and making more money than they ever did. Some of it is because the online sales are total highway robbery (basically charging the same prices for files as they did for vinyl or CDs) but more is because for every few people who download some music they spread the band's fame and spur others to buy the overpriced mp3s and pay for concerts.

The same way that video rental stores and video duping never slowed down video sales, so does online downloading help bands, in the end. And if they ever put the prices for the mp3 or flac files at the appropriate level then no one would even bother downloading their stuff on the side.

In my dream-world, we have 3 vacancies at SCOTUS in the next two years.


The newcomers stage a revolt unless Roberts agrees to prioritize restoring constitutional protections to American citizens.


They take Peruta, and rule the obvious way. They take the 4th's atrocity, and rule the obvious way (two sentences: "The appeals court's impudent lawlessness is noted, and its ruling is vacated. Heller is reaffirmed with respect to the standard of firearms in common use"). They take the appeal of the 9th's predictable ammo law decision, and rule the obvious way (which takes with it prior ammo laws such as in LA and SF).


They even get the handgun roster case, and make an example of it - (suggested language) "many jurisdictions have piled on bad-faith regulation that clearly burdens the individual right, without the slightest arguable public benefit. This is an example of such malicious suppression of constitutional rights. It is hereby abolished, and this Court affirms that all similar arbitrary laws infringing the 2nd Amendment without any serious public safety rationale will be stuck down in other jurisdictions."

I wasn't one of them. From the moment Trump came down the escalator at Trump Tower . . . .

From what I knew of his pre-"You're Fired" gig, I thought I was getting a pretty savvy manager, one who knew when to step in and break shit when necessary. I think he manages the nearly-broken presstitures quite nicely, don't you?

Trump is the first unfiltered president in my lifetime, and it is quite enjoyable. A president who actually speaks what's on his mind. And with the power of the tweet to back it up. His words get out there, not the negative spin the media always puts on news/items/tidbits Trump-related. A throwback to ol' Andy Jackson is our Trump.

I didn't know how any of the guy golfers could concentrate when she was interviewing them on the course. It was almost funny. Her name is ... Holly Sonders. Her body is just outrageous.

I haven't seen her in a long time. She left the Golf Channel to join NBC, I think, and I haven't seen anything of her since. It's a real shame.

Playing golf, hell any sport on the Moon would be fun as hell, I think. 1/6 g and things just are going to be very different (I'm assuming a big pressured dome of some sort, of course, so one could be out in one's regular clothes.

Shooting would be fun as well. With rifle rounds, you are actually getting in the order of magnitude of surface orbital velocity. So, talk about long range shots. And no air resistance and all that good stuff. We'd shoot outside the dome....

I remember reading a science fiction short story, about an astronaut on the Moon, armed, because there was a threat of alien invasion. He is in the mountains, and meets an alien, who makes a seemingly hostile move, so he fires a shot from his rifle, but misses the alien. It then develops that the alien is in distress or something, and wants to communicate. They make tentative moves to reach some sort of truce. And then the rifle slug, which orbited the Moon, returns, and kills the alien dead.

804 >> "But he DID shoot himself in the back!! I swear!"

You could get close. WIth artillery, IIRC, it would be possible to hit any target anywhere from anywhere.

Now, at the surface, you got all the mountains and that. Plus, the Moon's gravitational field is fairl "lumpy", deviating from pure spherical inverse square enough to make orbits really chaotic close in.

Such would make it bit different, but it would still be fun.

Those short little skirts. Dayum.

Some of these young things have no idea what they're doing to us with those things. A few months ago, when it was still warm, I was at some restaurant. There was some pretty little thing with her friends there. She was wearing a little golf outfit, with the shortest skirt you ever did see.

I'll refrain from too many details. Nice ladies are still here, I think.

But one of my buddies saw me looking -- he was looking too, and said "Dammit boy, she's young enough to be your granddaughter." He has about 10 years on me, so, something about he would be her great-grandpa.

His wife saw what was going on, smacked me (lightly, of course) with "pervert!" and then said she couldn't worry about me, but she was going to whip hubby's little ass. She gave him a look all right.

852 In my dream-world, we have 3 vacancies at SCOTUS in the next two years.


The newcomers stage a revolt unless Roberts agrees to prioritize restoring constitutional protections to American citizens.


They take Peruta, and rule the obvious way. They take the 4th's atrocity, and rule the obvious way (two sentences: "The appeals court's impudent lawlessness is noted, and its ruling is vacated. Heller is reaffirmed with respect to the standard of firearms in common use"). They take the appeal of the 9th's predictable ammo law decision, and rule the obvious way (which takes with it prior ammo laws such as in LA and SF).


They even get the handgun roster case, and make an example of it - (suggested language) "many jurisdictions have piled on bad-faith regulation that clearly burdens the individual right, without the slightest arguable public benefit. This is an example of such malicious suppression of constitutional rights. It is hereby abolished, and this Court affirms that all similar arbitrary laws infringing the 2nd Amendment without any serious public safety rationale will be stuck down in other jurisdictions."

Posted by: The Electoral Hat at January 12, 2018 03:33 AM (itfg0)

A possibility. Long-term history does say it would even be probable. Shorter term has been quite a bit better. Based on the trajectory of States' legislatures over the last decade, and the fact that the Republicans actually gained ground in Bush 43's, 1st term, and finally lost control in 2006 (correct?)...I would say that even if the dems retook the Senate, your 2024- or longer scenario seems quite pessimistic.

As long as our economy is good, it will be hard for the dems to make great strides.

80 proof is a bit watered down for 'shine. It's a dying art around here.

The best kind is the tax-free kind, but you want it from those who know what the hell they're doing. And somehow, that's died out pretty much around here.

There are some local "micro-distillers" that have popped up, what with the new state rules (I don't know the details), and they make legal "moonshine" of a few varieties -- even sell it in Mason jars -- but it ain't like the real thing.

Most of the fun is knowing it's illegal.

I think it depends on which asshole/not entirely asshole you deal with.

I got the first beer brewing licence on record in SC, since colonial times. The ATF in Atlanta were very cool; the state people not so much, because they didn't want to admit that they didn't know what to do or how to tax it.

When I got the federal license from ATF, I also asked for that to be included in my previous license to import wine from Hungary.

Later, I looked at the fine print and found that I was also a Federally licensed Category 1 importer-which includes firearms!

879 i was talking about home brew/making for personal consumption, neither of which require a federal license. the only limits at that level is how much you can make per year and what you can do with it.

there is no such home distilling exemption, except for farmers to distill for fuel.

at least the last time i looked.

I stopped by the bread aisle and it was hilarious. The stereotype is true. You could not have fed a healthy mouse with the selection of bread on display.

And a forty gallon still

One gal watched the boiler
The other watched the spout
Mama corked the bottles
And ole Dooley fetched 'em out.

Dooley, slippin' up the holler
Dooley, tryin' to make a dollar,
Dooley, give me a swaller,
And I'll pay ya back someday.

He lies there all alone,
They put a jug beside him,
And a barrel for a stone.

Yes, that's the question that these MSM twits should be asking.

Why isn't U.S. immigration policy being designed to advance the interests of American citizens, rather than foreign poor people?

Is the U.S. a sovereign nation, or is it a giant international charity? If it isn't a charity, then why is it being run like one?

Our elected representatives in government are supposed to represent our interests, but instead they seem to be more interested in serving the interests of foreigners. For years now, American taxpayers have been forced to shell out hundreds of billions of dollars a year to provide "free" services to millions of foreigners living in our country, both legally and illegally. We're doing this at a time when we have $20 trillion in public debt, and hundreds of trillions more in unfunded liabilities, like SS, Medicare, and public pensions. We can't afford to provide our own veterans with the health care we promised them in exchange for their military service, but if you're an illegal alien who wants a sex-change operation, our government has got you covered!

We can't afford to keep being the third-world's ATM, and it's long past time that we put a stop to this shit.

945 So I should reconsider the all inclusive I have booked for spring break in Haiti?

946 I know a lot about third world shit holes. My wife is from one. We visit her family frequently and if you have a little money it can actually be enjoyable as there are some nice places and the complete lack of nanny-state rules and regulations is refreshing. But shithole is a very accurate description of these places.

Anyone ever see a satellite image of the border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic? They cry about the rain forest while completely ignoring the deforestation of Haiti?

Why? The 'soft' bigotry of low expectations?

949 My ancestors from Ireland and Germany in the early 1800'swoul have described those places as shitholes. I come a shithole town in West Texas, my wife from a shithole in central Alabama. Why does that make me racist?

950 *yawn*

Pooky's birthday was yesterday (I managed to keep him alive another year) and he was saying that he felt old. Since I'm two years older than him, that made *me* feel old.

Then I saw this ONT, and realized I'm not just a spring chicken, I'm an egg! Thanks for making me feel better, guys.

Is there a fence at the border? Or do the Haitians politely decline to go across the line and clean out the DR's trees too?

I actually order a top hits of the late 60's/early '70's in the early '70's. The cover band that played them must have been Viet Cong. You have never heard bad before.

That dude just wouldn't shut up.

"It's dark in here."
"I'm thirsty"
"When are they coming to save us?"
"Does anybody have a Snickers!?"
"Wanna hear me sing 'Muskrat Love' again?"

Damn straight we ate 'im. Stringy little bastidge! And I'd do it again.

964 Shithole is about the culture, it's not about race.

North Korea is a shithole. People risk their lives to get out of there, and nobody there is black.

Mexico is also a shithole, and few people there are black.

Just because some shitholes have majority black populations doesn't mean that shithole is a racist term.

972 Don't be cuttin' on the Buoys. I knew those guys back in the day. If you're gonna cut on anybody, cut on Rupert Holmes, who wrote the song (and the infernal Pina Colada song aka "Escape").
