The Morning Rant

"A lot of people, mainly progressives, are getting their knickers in a twist over Trump saying that in some circumstances he would take guns first and worry about due process second. But we've accepted the suspension of due process rights in certain circumstances for quite a while now, so isn't this indignation a bit late? If they can take somebody's stuff just because they suspect it's been used for drug trafficking, then it's no great leap to justify taking somebody's guns because they suspect he's going to shoot up a school or shopping mall. This could be something both left and right could work together to eliminate, but if progressives are only going to complain when Trump does it, that's not much of a basis for bipartisan action."

Apparently, Somebody Didn't Get The Joke:

snopes - babylon bee.jpg

(Narrator: The Babylon Bee is a satirical web site)

But wait, it gets better. Somebody confronted Snopes with this on Twitter:


So, rather than doing any actual fact checking, which I thought was what they supposedly did, Snopes doubled down on stupid.

No wonder their credibility is sinking faster than Harvey Weinstein's pants at a Hollywood casting party.

(...and it would have taken them maybe 3-4 clicks to confirm that the Babylon Bee is satire. Are they really that smug or just lazy?)

127 Italy Gets Fed Up -- political earthquake as Italy embraces the populist right in latest election:

http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-43272700

The upshot is: "Italexit" and anti-immigration parties won almost all the votes in the latest Italian election, while the "center-left" got smashed and the extreme left got almost no votes.

Because there are so many different anti-EU and anti-immigrant parties (typical of Italy), they have to now form some kind of "coalition government."

Summation: This election is to Italy what the Trump election was to us or the Brexit vote to the UK.

Despite still controlling the culture, the Left has lost the hearts and minds of regular people around the world.

To be honest, the pineapple/swinger thing has been something of an urban legend for a while now, with no real confirmation that I've seen.

On the other hand, there is an upscale community near me (Brielle, NJ) that apparently has a thriving swinger population. There is a certain restaurant where they all meet up and I personally know of a normal couple who were "approached" there.

===============

People often accuse me of having hoarding tendencies. Granted, I like things and stuff, but I'm not a hoarder - I know exactly what I have and where it is.

Yesterday, a friend texted me and told me he got a free ticket to go to Comic Con. He then asked me if I wanted him to get any autographs for me. So, I went online and looked at who was going to be there. Nichelle Nichols (Uhura) was going to be there. I told him, "Yeah, get me her autograph."

Nichols was my favorite character on the show when I first got interested in it in the mid 80s, so nothing like 30 years to get an autograph (but I'm digressing).

I then said, "Well, if you can get her to sign a photo from the Star Trek V era that would be great - I liked her look in that movie. He had no idea what I was talking about. THEN I remembered, I had squired away a copy of the Star Trek V movie magazine from 1989. I pulled it out and told him to stop over before he went.

My "hoarding" paid off. Now I have the relic magazine with her autograph on the Uhura photo.

151 A problem with making the age limit 21, is some parents or adults should be allowed to have oversight to get them a gun ... for hunting say, or for home defense. But tort lawyers would love to then confiscate that person's assets if the gun is ever misused, or even legit usage can be expensive.

If a person can buy a house they should be able to buy a gun. And "kids" that get out on their own at 18 will maybe not be living in the best neighborhoods.

Maybe add a requirement for some minimal training class for gun purchase 18 to 21, instead of telling them they can't defend themselves in their own home till they are 21.

In "the Great Influenza" by John Barry (the best book I know of on the topic) the author presents the story of a very meticulous and skilled doctor who kept very careful notes of some very surprising and unusual deaths about 3 months before this, out in the backwoods farms of west Kansas. The hallmark of the disease which made it stand out was that the healthiest and strongest patients died the fastest. (turned out that they were killed by their own strong immune system response)

Most often we hear of diseases coming from China, or the middle east, but it's possible that the Great Influenza came from a mutation that happened right in the heartland of America.

179 135 Reminds me of the old days when you saw yellow lights on all the porches around the neighborhood. People liked to sit on the porch at night after it cooled down (pre-AC) and the yellow lights did not attract bugs, particularly mosquitoes. Now since AC is everywhere nobody sits on the porch and few houses even have one.

Friend of mine had a slightly different approach. He got one of those bug zappers with the extra bug attracting light and mounted it far away from his house by the neighbor's yard so that it would attract what bugs it didn't zap to his neighbor's place.

Other theory has it that it originated in Haskell County, Kansas (which was pretty much ground zero for the Dust Bowl too). Local doctor reported it to Washington, prior to the Ft.

Church members said "That wouldn't work because some place up the road has a huge one and everyone goes to that." A fellow who recently been attending church says, "Why would we do that?. Easter has nothing to do with bunnies and eggs" and no, it doesn't but it would be an outreach to the community children, I said. He was being facetious. The guy knows that Easter in the church is not about bunnies and eggs . He just likes to be a wise acre sometimes . FenelonSpouse says, "I have an idea.

275 Sobering historical fact.

March 11th, 1918 the first case of what
would become known as the Spanish Flu pops up at Camp Funston, Ft.
Riley KS. Patient Zero - Pvt Albert Gitchell. And from there it would
travel to Europe and hit the armies on both sides.

Interesting to look at census data to see the effects.
Whole towns were killed off and no one really knows exact numbers but 40 -50 million estimated.

Said it was smart business: $50 to install in all of them during construction, heavily advertise it, thieves will go down the street and rob the complex without them because they don't know whose paying for monitoring and who's not. They had the stats from other complexes where they'd done the same thing to prove it. I pay $15 / month to keep mine monitored and am very grateful for the common sense.

302 'I didn't know that particular flu was survivable. I thought it was essentially a death sentence."

The thing that made that version of the flu so bizarre was that if you were very young, or very old, or sick from some other disease (the people usually most at risk) you actually had a very good chance of surviving it.

But if you were a perfectly healthy adult in your 20's or 30's, you often would be dead within 3 days of suffering the very first symptoms. It was a hell of a disease.

(It triggered the immune system into a massive response which killed the host, so people with compromised immune systems actually did much better)

Before prohibition there was no age limit in most places. Anyone who was tall enough to throw coins up on a bar could drink. The problem came when prohibition was repealed and the wording of the repeal.

Section 2. The transportation or importation into any State,
Territory, or possession of the United States for delivery or use
therein of intoxicating liquors, in violation of the laws thereof, is
hereby prohibited.


This has been interpreted by SCOTUS to mean States can write any laws they want on sale of booze. Which is how SC gets away with banning it on Sunday.

341 I'm no mouth breather, liberal (but I repeat myself) or alarmist. But what the president stated about "due process' is one of the most disturbing things I have ever heard a president utter in my lifetime.

You can certainly make the diversion to asset forfeiture, and no person who believes in personal liberty could ever condone that, but it does not change the basis of what he stated.

I understand the eventual context Trump put his remarks in, and the support he tried to give to due process, but there is no excuse for that remark. None.

Trump can mangle his concepts when he speaks off the cuff. I think his display on that particular occasion was for the benefit of the LIVs who want to know he's serious about "doing something". He knows the battle is being fought on the margins and he wants to peel away some swing voters and disaffected democrats.

There are dumb, careless remarks or conversation one can have as part of the political theater. Trump has done more of that than most.

But when it comes to the most basic of constitutional liberties- it's no longer a joke, theatrical or a negotiating tactic. It crosses a very clear line.

Do I believe he will do anything to subvert due process? No. But that isn't the point.

414 I don't get too worked up about the early voting results in Texas - first, it's only a survey of the 15 biggest counties, which are all the most Dem leaning ones. That means 241 counties aren't included in that analysis. second, the dems actually have some contested races on their primary ballots. third, in 2014, the year they are comparing this to, I think almost 2/3 of the Republicans ran unopposed, except for Republican primary challengers. So even Democrats had to vote in the Rep primary that year if they wanted to have a say in most offices. (Texas has an open primary) 4th, I'm actually gratified that Rep. turnout is up as well (although not as much) since, except for local races, there are no seriously contested races in the Republican primary this year.

Posted by: thathalfrican

When Trump said take guns, due process later, he was operating with the knowledge presented over the prior days, specifically with WRT FL's GVROs and Scott's discussion of them, IMO. He probably flubbed his representation/understanding of it, and as predictable, the left/nevertrump seized on it to make political hay.

Not bad for a businessman/non-attorney, IMO, and he has walked it back, since then.


In WA, for example, there is very little due process ahead of gun seizure for WA's Extreme Risk Protection Orders.

426 @411

Instapundit's been posting links about tech companies seriously considering leaving, and setting up shop in other locations. It's apparently due to a number of different factors, so there's no "one thing" responsible. I don't think the really big companies like Google or Facebook are considering it. But apparently a lot of smaller companies are.

428 Texas - I've seen several signs up (at local college professors homes) saying "BETO!!!"

which is funny, since Beto is goinna lose by 30 points to Cruz in the general. Beto thrills all the same people who got so excited by Wendy Davis.

You don't have to go any farther than the fact that Beto advocates total open borders, and instant citizenship with voting rights for anyone who happens to wander on this side of the border.

1. Is not American she is English.
2. Is an actress not a scholar.
3. Posed three times in a pictorial in Playboy.
4. In spite of which she claims to have been sexually harassed by a prominent Hollywood producer.
5. Which she won't name.
6. Seems unaware a red light at the door of any place is considered the sign of a Bordello or an abode of Prostitutes.
7. Lives in a gated Mansion guarded by "ARMED GUARDS" who carry (gasp!) GUNS!
8. Needs to act her age, shut up, sit down and be quiet about things she knows nothing about.
