An expensive Father's Day or Ooops!!!!

Parenthood is filled with all kinds of expenses—both expected and unexpected. As it turns out, children need food and clothes and all kinds of stuff. And sometimes, if you’re especially unlucky, they break expensive artwork and you’re left holding the bill.

That’s precisely what happened to a couple from Kansas, whose 5-year-old son broke a sculpture—titled “Aphrodite Di Kansas City,” made of glass and pieces of mirror—by “hugging” it. Now his parents are being asked to pay the estimated $132,000 that the piece is worth. The family was attending a wedding at the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in Overland Park when the boy—who was unattended at the moment—wrapped his arms around the piece and caused it to fall to the ground, breaking it.

Oh no!! People making $100,000 per year are destitute.

They better not ask the people of Green Bay, WI.

Let's face it, wages and salaries are dictated by regions, including but not limited the cost of living, education, occupation and experience. What is a shit-ton of money in Newton, IA is not in NYC.

Target, always on the cutting edge of societal norms?

Target veered out of the politically correct lane the retailer likes to travel in with a Father’s Day card featuring a black couple that included the phrase “Baby Daddy.”

The controversy was prompted by social media users such as Takeisha Saunders, who shared a photo of the card on Facebook.

“”You CANNOT be serious Target!!!! Really!!!?!!!!? This was the only Father’s Day card that featured a black couple!!!!!!” Saunders wrote, including a series of hashtags.

Twitter loses in court. CA judge allows deleted Twitter account holder to sue.


Last year, Twitter purged a significant amount of far-right and white nationalist accounts as part of its updated terms of service. The purge led to many cries of free speech violations from members of those aforementioned groups, and now, one white nationalist is taking the social network to court.

That would be Jared Taylor, founder of the white nationalist publication American Renaissance. Taylor first sued Twitter in February for banning his account, an action he claimed “violated civil rights and contract law,” the Verge reports.

We didn't have this 'Green' thing back then.

Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags are not good for the environment.

The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, “We didn’t have this ‘green thing’ back in my earlier days.”

The young clerk responded, “That’s our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations.”


*****

Tomorrow DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowoitz is expected to testify before Congress. Some people are putting their eggs in one basket.

Michael Horowitz, the DOJ inspector general, will testify Monday before the Senate Judiciary Committee, defending his report. He will be praised and attacked for his work product. But the politics ultimately will take a back seat to fact-based evidence that will eventually put a lot of individuals in jail.

The idea of people (FBI agents, etc) going to jail is Pollyannaish.

32 Repost (OT) from the gun thread. No, I am not going to see the movie "First Reformed":

The Atheist director pictures Christians as pious bores, who are intent on destroying the planet. The protagonist minister is losing his faith. The villain is a evil white industrialist who supports the church, because of course churches always have funding from corporations??!!!. The ministers small congregation is mostly made up of women he has sex with and rejected or women who want to have sex with him, He meets a woman whose husband has committed suicide. She's pregnant and (How subtle is this-her name is Mary?!!) The pastor is going to don the suicide vest of the wacko environmentalist husband and because he has cancer and going to die anyway and will blow up all the pious Christians at the 250th rededication of the church because they are destroying the planet by their lack of environmentalism, and so are just like Muslim jihadists.


If Atheists who dislike Christianity are going to make films about pastors at least they should have someone who actually IS a pastor as the consultant on the film

Sometimes the worst thing about the Left is that they are so boring and predictable. I remember a Dave Barry column in which he said that the way academia works is that if you want to write a thesis about how Harry Truman was a no-nonsense guy, forget it, but if you want to say he was (inventing something) a guy who liked to dress up as a clown and stalk coffee shops, then you have yourself a thesis.

Apparently moviemaking doesn't work like that. You can recycle the same boring, hostile tropes forever.

70 Love the leftists whining that $100,000 a year just isn't enough.

In particular, Taylor Haby, a single guy in Seattle making $100,000 a year, with $15,000 in student loans to pay off, whining about how unequal society is, and how unequal the tax code is.

The poor guy is just **so** oppressed.

Here's a clue Taylor - **you're** the guy that Bernie Sanders is going after, if he gets into power. The problem with going after the super-rich is that they're aren't that many of them - you can confiscate Jeff Bezos' wealth, and that would pay for the Washington State budget for less than two years, let alone Federal and local expenditures. On the other hand, there are a lot of people with six-figure salaries - if you want to transfer money from taxpayers to the beneficent government, that is who you will be going after.

This! If you put a piece of art on public display in an area accessible to the public, you take your chances. Either insure it, or be prepared to eat the cost if something happens to it.

87 When I was a kid, one of our neighbors was a Naval officer. He was stationed in Italy for a couple of years, and the wife and two little boys went to Italy, too. While they were there, the oldest kid took a hammer to a really old tiled floor. The Italian authorities nearly stroked out when they found out. The father had to pay for the damage, of course. I understand the kid grew up to be a career criminal and served several years in the clink for murder.

Plus, if it was so precariously balanced that a 5 year-old could topple it, somebody else screwed up, probably the sculptor.

have been that the loser had to spend the next week wearing a t-shirt

appear on one week's worth of shows wearing a shirt that said Cruz had
beaten him.



Posted by: junior at June 17, 2018 10:14 PM (cSguU)

Kimmel would never do that. He is not that type of tv host. They don't do self deprecation or even getting to know people different than them anymore. It is all SJW attacks, all the time and nothing else. Kimmel is not tone deaf, he just doesn't care. He is not trying to read the audience, he is trying to lead them, costs be damned. That is not just him, it is across the media now.

I don't fault Cruz for this stunt, at least he put the guy in his place and helped some charities. But as a general rule, conservatives should refuse to go on late night at all, there is no way to win these people and their seal clapping audiences over. It has long been time for Repubs to refuse to go on late night or the MSM, just shut them out completely.

123 Robert Duvall financed and produced "The Apostle" himself, because he believed in it and no studio wanted to touch it because of it's religious topic. I very much appreciated the way the main character was portrayed - at the end, you will not say he was unquestionably "good", he has to serve time for something bad that he did, and yet he also inspired and worked tirelessly to help poor and hurting people who needed someone to stand up for them - the character is complex and multi-faceted, some parts very good, some parts bad, which surprise, makes you see him as a very real person.

142 >>>Twitter purged a significant amount of far-right and white nationalist accounts

This term "white nationalist" is pure bullshit. If the provocation by the left is racist, the response must necessarily involve race. So if the left makes accusations of "white privilege" and you point out that this notion is bullshit, they will respond "aha! you are bringing white race into it! So you are a white supremacist!"

Imagine a different scenario. If a black man in jim crow times were harassed at various times by Klansmen and fought them off, would it make sense to say "This black guy only attacked white men, therefore he is racist!"

Of course not. The provocation was race based and therefore the response must make some mention of race. That does not mean the person who responds is racists. They are just highlighting the racism of the provocateur.

The Daily Mail has the video of that kid breaking that $132K sculpture.

I don't have much sympathy for the mother, she was obviously letting her little brat run around. I get sick of these parents who just let their brats run around, and think it's cute.

When I was that, I would never be running amok like that in a public place. If I had, my little ass would've been quite red.

I'm sure they're over-valuing the damn thing, and the insurance company probably fucked up, but, I'd love to make that idiot mother shit her pants over that. She ought to have pay out of her little candy ass a bit.

When I was a kid, one of our neighbors was a Naval officer. He was
stationed in Italy for a couple of years, and the wife and two little
boys went to Italy, too. While they were there, the oldest kid took a
hammer to a really old tiled floor. The Italian authorities nearly
stroked out when they found out. The father had to pay for the damage,
of course. I understand the kid grew up to be a career criminal and
served several years in the clink for murder.

210 When an insurer tells you in their advertising "We know a few things, because we've covered a few things..."

Assume that what they know is how to avoid covering those things twice.

I'm going to credit Travelers with not having any really offensive ads, just lately. If this were Liberty Mutual, I'd be rooting for them to go broke.

Some people, going right on back through The American Experience, "seem" to "Feel" that if there is insurance, hell no prob, everything's jake. No. Insurance companies do not take losses lightly.

This case is going to be one of those "civil liability" things where a less-than-12 jury debates relative degrees of blame. No way the parents are going to pay anything like the claimed value.

219 I see the" immigrant children in cages talking point complete with protests is taking off. Dems have obviously have decided to work this one.Normal thinking people won't be moved because:
1. Obvious Dem propaganda
2. If anybody is at fault it is the parents for crossing the border illegally.3. The "cages" are far better than the hovels they were dragged from.
4. Anybody that would drag their kid across a dangerous and illegal border crossing deserves to have their kids taken away. At least bank robbers leave their kids at home.

Give the parent 6 months hard labor then reunite them with their kids on the other side of the border.

234 Good evening roonz and roonettez.


Next weekend my brother is getting married (for the third and hopefully last time) and my daughter in Wyoming who I haven't seen since she was seven years old (that would be 1993) was supposed to be there. I was finally going to get to meet my son in law and the last 4 grandchildren. It was going to be quite the shindig.



And then disaster struck.


My son in law's younger brother was found dead this morning, his wife went to wake him up to wish him a happy Fathers Day and he was cold and unresponsive. The only detail I have is the TOD was estimated at 4 AM. He has no history of drug or alcohol abuse and foul play is not suspected.


Please keep his family in prayer.

Then, oh, $20/hr for the 'sculptor' labor. Looking at the thing, I call it about a month's dedicated work, call it two. I think the 'sculptor' would be lucky to get $7000. I sure as hell wouldn't pay that.

Posted by: Quint at June 17, 2018 10:55 PM

The problem is that we have an Idiocracy media. So what is ignored by 99% of people who don't care about Twitter, suddenly becomes "newsworthy" when one of the SWJ jackasses at a news organization takes it from Twitter and spreads it to "mainstream" media. And the next step is to go to the company for a statement on "what is going viral!!!!11ty!!! on teh twitters!"

The businesses don't want to deal with negative attention, so they immediately capitulate to what was likely something only cared about by tens or hundreds of people spending all their time on Twitter stirring up nonsense.

It would be great if companies started coming out with statements saying they don't run their businesses based on the rantings of a tiny amount of people on Twitter.

Considering idiots consider something "viral" or "trending" when it has 100,000 views or something. Consider that the population of the USA is 325mil people. Twitter has an active user base of 69mil.

To make this easy, imagine something is talked about by 1mil users. That's 1.4% of Twitter. And 0.3% of the US population.

Companies need to start replying that something Tweeted by that small number of people does not represent anything "viral" let alone a majority opinion of Americans.

I agree. They are responsible for *reasonable* assessment of value. If some brat knocks my ficus over, and I try to claim it's worth $1M because, well, I really, really, really like it. I mean, really like it, then that's not gonna fly, nor should it.

What pisses me off is these parents who let their kids run amok like this. So, I want that mother to have a little pucker factor, but no $132K for that piece of crap is too much.

It is pretty clear companies have decided the left is batshit crazy and better organized. It is easier to placate them and hope they go after someone else next. Normals are too busy living their lives and will likely move on. This will continue until major corporations say enough is a enough and stand up to these keyboard tapping retweeters.

Look at the car rental companies. They were craven but smart in their tactics. They folded en masse and in a timely manner. They accepted some short term pain realizing that normals, given their industriousness would have to still rent cars from time to time.

Some very nice landscape paintings (personal favorites), some interesting sculptures, and a lot of paintings that looked like monkeys threw paint on canvases. I couldn't remember the piece that was damaged until I watched the video, and even then my recollection was pretty meh. Most of the pieces had a sale price on them. I remember a few in the low thousands but nothing higher than that. And there was definitely nothing there I would have paid $132,000 for.

Local story, man dies in collision, excerpt:

All three men riding in the truck that caused the collisions fled the scene on foot. Troopers located and arrested two of the men, but a third remains at large, Stephens said. According to witness accounts provided to troopers, the Pickup occupant still on the run is a Hispanic man possibly in his mid-20s, last seen in a white T-Shirt covered in blood.
Two other suspects arrested

Stephens told the Citizen Times that although the other two men from the pickup were arrested and taken to the Buncombe County Detention Center last night, Highway Patrol can't release their names. Neither man had any identification when they were arrested, so troopers booked each of them under the name "John Doe," a process Stephens said is not unusual in a case like this.

And before the drinkage begins, I'll also host you for a time at the local range. Gotta get your lifetime round count up to a respectable level, eh?

Epic eats, too. One cannot begin the drinkage without ample food ballast on board, of course.

354 @338

Jim New Sunk Dawn-

Not that I'm not honored by your request, but limericks are meant for lighter and more frivolous things and prayers don't trip easily from me. Perhaps I could offer the words of Guy Clark's The Randall Knife (which served as the source for the title of my little novella "To Save Us All From Ruin"). Always brings a lump to my throat when I think of my own father, especially on Father's Day.

Opening line is

"My father had a Randall knife, my mother gave it to him. When he went off to World War Two to save us all from ruin.

Later:


My father died when I was forty
And I couldn't find a way to cry
Not because I didn't love him
And not because he didn't try.

I'd cried for every lesser thing.
Whiskey, pain and beauty
But he deserved a better tear
And I was not quite ready.

So we took his ashes out to sea
And poured 'em off the stern
And threw the roses in the wake
Of everything we'd learned

When we got back to the house
They asked me what I wanted.
Not the law books, not the watch,
I need the thing he's haunted

Oh my hand burned for the Randall knife
There in the bottom drawer
And I found a tear for my father's life
And all that it stood for.

Perfect, sir. And far better than that which I'd requested, too.

If you have it to hand, would you post a URL to the unabridged original?

I've handled many a Randall knife, but don't own one. I do though own three McKissack blades, which are legendary in their own right.

The most valuable, a small "gentleman's" folder. 2-1/4 in. Damascus blade. German silver bolsters and liner. "Bark" elephant ivory scales (handles). 18k solid gold pins and opening and closing "shells" atop the blade and lock bar on the spine.

Sharp enough to cut you from just looking at it, still folded, on the top shelf of the gun safe.

So...the "Randall" in that Kipling-esque passage, rings true.

Oh, and if your local, friendly Viet Nam vet was out in the bush... he might just have used a Randall to good effect. Same with many an Aviator (of all services).

A Randall knife was right up there with a proper pair of Cochoran Jump Boots, for the well prepared troop.

Even in my very near, Post Viet Nam service (took the oath, delayed enlistement '75, active duty '76)... the Randall was still the Holy Grail of what one carried afield.

IF that is, one could first, a) find one b) AFFORD one.

They were scarce and pricey then.

They are even more so, now.

More likely income tax evasion being done in plain sight. Art gets auctioned back and forth amongst a number of parties, ratcheting the "value" ever higher. And then the last buyer donates it to a museum, and claims a tax write-off for the last auction amount.

I am pretty sure the same sort of shenanigans occur at high-roller car auctions.

I know dark clouds will hover round me.
I know my path is rough and steep
But beauteous fields, rise above me
Where God redeems, his vigils keep.

I'm going home. to see my father
I'm going home. No more to roam
I'm just crossing over Jordan
I'm just crossing over home.

491 Woo-hoo!

Jut got back from a Father's Day family get-together.

Where I encountered some "good news" of a sort -- not about my family, but about the political zeitgeist of the nation.

Background info: Everyone in my family is a moonbat -- leftoid idiots who parrot every Democratic talking point and fall in line with every liberal meme. And not just some of my family is this way -- every stinkin' single one of them, to varying degrees.

The most extreme of the bunch is one of my half-sisters, whom I'll call, uh, "Jane." She eagerly regurgitates Rachel Maddow and Stephen Colbert like that makes her some kind of well-informed genius. Gag.

But this evening, we're all sitting around with our dad, and Jane says glumly to the whole family, "We're never going to get rid of Trump, are we?"

Everyone moaned and shook their heads: "Yeah, looks like were stuck with him now. Shit. Well, at least we tried."

Then one of my brothers-n-law -- probably the least goose-stepping of the group -- tried to cheer everyone up by saying, "Hey but at least we'll finally bring an end to the Korean War! That's good -- right?"

But everyone moaned in further pain, since Trump's success was the worst news possible.

Then, uncharacteristically, they all changed the subject and starting talking about sports and medical problems. The very fact that they stopped talking politics meant that they were too depressed to even stay on the topic.

If my family is any indication o the typical liberal mindset, looks like the Left is demoralized and feels defeated. Which is the best news I've ever gotten at a Father's Day event.

So, you're saying that there's no way to express the statement,

"This is a yes or no question" in Latin?

Given all the writing and speaking they did I would imagine that they must have had use for this sort of statement every so often - especially if one Roman thinker was trying to express how another might tend to give convoluted answers to simple questions. Sure, one could say something like "This question only requires a simple, direct answer" but that's really not the same.

As best one can reconstruct the arguments of the advocates (assuming that the written versions leave out a lot), Margarita has a good point regarding the use of "ita".

"Ita" implies that you accept the truth of the previous statement. A bit more than a simple "yes".

It means that the question itself had to phrased and stated in an incontrovertible way. Therefore the question had to be a yes/no kind of question, if the advocate wanted to elicit such a response.

I guess the odd part is that the surrounding languages had "yes" in their vocabularies and you figure that the Romans did a bit of translating whenever they took over and slaughtered a peoples or two. And once you have "yes" in your vocabulary it pretty much appears all over the place. Most people would assume that "yes" is one of the first words created for most languages. I mean, there are gestures for "yes" throughout most of the world and gestures came long before language.

Yeah, it is.
But you could use "thus and not."
Abelard's "Sic et Non" is usually translated as "Yes and No."

Well, that's medieval Latin, but still.....

IIRC, in Roman law a yes-or-no question demanding mere affirmation or denial was just called a "quaestio simplex" (simple question.) IIRC.

So, a Roman would not nod his head back and forth to reply affirmatively to a question?

I saw a documentary once investigating human gestures and the guy pointed out that a head nodding "yes" is found throughout the world but there are two types - back and forth (as we do) and side to side (in India and parts around there, which makes Indians seem wishy-washy when they are really gesturing a definite "yes"). He identified the boundary of the different head gestures for "yes". It was very interesting.

I would think that Romans would have had some sort of non-verbal affirmative response to things ... especially for military communications. I guess it could be your "thus" word .. but "yes" is a bit more general than "thus" since it can be an affirmative response to things that do not take a "thus" (in English) response.

The Languedoc region of France was distinguished simply by how they said "yes" differently than other regions. Languedoc means "language of yes", the land where they say "oc" instead of "oil" for yes. So, Yes, yes is important. I guess the oil's became dominant and that became "oui".

571 Some day someone will have to unpack the whole Trump v Sessions thing. I just don't get it. Sessions was one of the earliest Trump supporters, He supported Trump long before I or many life long conservatives did so. He also had a sterling record as a conservative legal mind. Something just does not add up. I am not talking conspiracy, I am truly at a loss to explain it. Session being "sleepy" can't be the whole story. Maybe they are playing "three dimensional chess", but it is an odd way to go about things imo.

I hear what you are saying. We need people to focus on all the key issues, but the lawfare thing really bores me and bums me out. I do not follow it closely. It has gone on since prior to the inauguration and I am just sick of the entire mess. I can't imagine this happening to the prior president. It would not have been allowed.

Maybe they do have something on someone. But why doesn't Sessions resign? Why doesn't Trump get rid of him? I think Sessions would resign if he were compromised in any way, and I also would like to think he would stand up to any attacks come what may. And if they are blackmailing someone, are they not themselves committing a crime?

Again, I just don't get the whole thing, that is all. I hope there is a good reason for it and some day we will know the reason.

It's an egg laying critter, so it never needed nipples.

Mammals comes from mammaries, but I think this and the platypus got in on warm blooded and has fur.

One of my favorite parts of Moby Dick is where Mellville calls a whale a fish and says, roughly, I know it's warm blooded and I know it breathes air but it lives like a fish so fuck it, it's a fish.

606 And this was my next favorite part of the review:

Then there's the scene when Mary (pregnant wife of the environmental wacko who committed suicide) talks about how she used to lay on top of her husband and touch hands. In a tossed-off, non chalant way the pastor asks, "Do you want me to do that?" Because of course that's something pastors offer congregants every day in a counseling situation? No, if this was realistic at all, that would have been an awkward moment, at least for him. Even for a non-religious counselor, that would be a huge crossing of the line. And while he might choose to cross that line, it wouldn't be a casual moment. So there is no emotional truth to the scene...even though they end up doing the "Whole New World" thing from Aladdin, using the Pastor as a magic carpet ride.

Basically all other first wold countries and at least half of the USA believe in global warming/climate change because of capitalism/ over population. This is a religion for these people to replace the actual religion they tossed away. They believe it in the same way they believe the sun rises in the East and sets in the West. Hell, they might be right, it could be true, I don't know the facts. The problem is not science, it is the lack of science.

People are fed a bunch of lines and they regurgitate them with vigor. Global warming scientists are as aligned with the political left as much as the Nobel Prize committee or the Academy of Motion Pictures. If these people really had a case, they would put if forward sans the politics and let people judge the science.

What few acknowledge today, even conservatives, is the economic warfare that started the entire global warming religion. I remember hearing Rush call these global warming alarmists "watermelons" at least 25 years ago. A Watermelon is green on the outside and red on the inside.

The point he made was that when the Soviet Union fell, anti-capitalists needed something else to use as a cudgel against the American Way. When Red Communism could not defeat Western Capitalism, the left went for green policies to take capitalism down a peg. Hence, these people are watermelons, green on the outside, red on the inside.

The one caveat with a defeated and demoralized group is that they become susceptible to channeling that into a complete rage at the hands of ruthless folk. Given the Left is halfway there, I would say this makes them more dangerous than ever...

655 The one caveat with a defeated and demoralized group

I first read that as "decaffeinated and demoralized".

656 And this was my next favorite part of the review:

Then there's the scene when Mary (pregnant wife of the environmental wacko who committed suicide) talks about how she used to lay on top of her husband and touch hands. In a tossed-off, non chalant way the pastor asks, "Do you want me to do that?" Because of course that's something pastors offer congregants every day in a counseling situation? No, if this was realistic at all, that would have been an awkward moment, at least for him. Even for a non-religious counselor, that would be a huge crossing of the line. And while he might choose to cross that line, it wouldn't be a casual moment. So there is no emotional truth to the scene...even though they end up doing the "Whole New World" thing from Aladdin, using the Pastor as a magic carpet ride.

I wish they'd just cut back on the entire event.

Reduce it to Mon/Wed/Fri. If that doesn't improve things - go Tue/Thur - etc...

Its just an activity for the press to bitch or applaud, depending on the administration.

659 The point he made was that when the Soviet Union fell, anti-capitalists needed something else to use as a cudgel against the American Way. When Red Communism could not defeat Western Capitalism, the left went for green policies to take capitalism down a peg. Hence, these people are watermelons, green on the outside, red on the inside.
Posted by: Quint at June 18, 2018 07:03 AM (n13/j)


I think this explains why Islam became such a problem here after the fall of the USSR. The left lost hope that they could destroy us, so they turned to other means. It's why they are so vigorous about Islamifying us, even after 9/11, San Bernadino, Orlando, Boston, etc.

663 Don't have a link (yet), but a bobcat in GA thought it'd be a good idea to attack a woman...

...she strangled the bobcat. Which reconfirms my knowledge that Southern Wimmin are not to be messed with.

Certain reporters inside the Beltway should bear that in mind.

664 I often wonder where our local bunny's live. My yard usually has a couple of young ones early or later in the day. I don't see any of the rabbit holes I see in the Bugs Bunny cartoons. I also expect they have a rather short life, but they seem to always be around.

IIRC, yours went well. I had my first one last week and so far so good, the other eye gets modified next week. I must say I think this is a miraculous surgery and I wish I had done when it was first recommended (but I hate surgery, even by competent doctors).

I would like to think it is not Islam per se but political Islam, the violent kind. There have to be many Muslims who want peace and want to be good Americans. I don't speak for them, but will believe it until proven wrong.

I think you are right that the left supports anyone who wants to take down the American System and all American traditions. Some might choose Islamists as fellow travelers, and others just reflexively support anyone who stands against the "evil" USA or Israel.
