The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

In the end, we were left only with the Stalinist mantra “to accuse is to be believed”—but, of course, not even the current accusers in the future would be exempt from the very nightmare they now would create for others.Victor Davis Hanson


Quote II


“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for”Hillary Clinton

My goodness awfully brave on foreign soil.


Mrs. Mis. Hum has the following to say about Hillary Clinton.

Quote III

The task of the modern educator is not to cut down jungles but to irrigate deserts. C.S. Lewis


Quote IV

“People never really think about how insulting it is. I mean, it’s wrong … It’s wildly insulting to those of us who just raise their families and pay their taxes and walk their dogs.”Adam Carolla


Quote V

“A man who sat here a month ago and dared to talk about my private parts, sponsoring a proclamation for domestic violence. Wow. That’s like Hitler having a proclamation for Jews. Or Fidel Castro having freedom day for Cubans.” Anabelle Lima-Taub, (Commissioner Hallandale Beach, FL)

It is either time for the national divorce or people have to pay price for their behavior. Does it matter what you did when you were an 8 year old? If you are an old hag seeking 15 minutes of fame it does. Stephen Miller of the Trump Administration was a "weird" student.

Old and busted: Judging adults from their high-school yearbooks. New hotness: Judging adults by their elementary-school craft projects. Trump adviser Stephen Miller gets remembered by his third-grade teacher, Nikki Fiske, in a Hollywood Reporter article that might prove just how desperate some editors are for content these days.

Twenty-five years ago, we discover, Stephen Miller was eight years old and did eight-year-old things:

However there is a small problem. It is apparently against the law to divulge such information. Wonder if a "mob" will descend on her and chant "lock her up".

What's good for the conservative is good for the Brown Shirt bitch.

The "Medical" profession continues to slide down the slippery slope sewer.

More and more “doctors” are openly advocating harvesting organs from still living donors as a form of euthanasia. This penchant for a medical version of Aztec cosplay is seen both in Europe and in North America. Yet another call for death by donation has crept up, this time in the New England Journal of Medicine.

“Canadians Ian Ball and Robert Sibbald from Western University, along with Robert Truog from Harvard, recently published an article in the New England Journal of Medicine calling for organ donation from euthanasia victims.

Exon Mobile going green. Republicans going left. It's a mixed up world.

On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that ExxonMobil had committed $1 million to a Republican-led carbon tax initiative called Americans for Carbon Dividends (AFCD). The story is a bit surprising on its face: it seems counterintuitive that an oil company would want to give money to an initiative that would tax its (considerable) carbon contribution. The other surprising factor is that some Republicans, who have traditionally resisted both climate policy and tax increases, are advocating for both.


Analysis of 187 documents concludes Exxon “misled the public” on climate change
But dig a little deeper and the story isn't terribly surprising. For ExxonMobil's part, the company has been fighting an image battle in recent years: it's facing significant lawsuits alleging that its scientists knew about climate change for decades and actively misled investors about it through advertisements and other public denials. Consequently, Exxon has made choices in recent years to reflect a more "eco-conscious" oil company, pledging to reduce methane emissions by 15 percent by 2020, for example.

You have to be pretty obnoxious for a business to obtain a restraining order against you. Whole Foods has had it with militant vegans.

A Whole Foods store in Berkeley filed for a restraining order in an ongoing suit against an animal rights activist organization and its co-founder, according to court records.

According to the Guardian, protesters from Direct Action Everywhere (DxE) will no longer be able to step foot in one of Berkeley's Whole Foods stores. The activist group has protested outside of Telegraph Ave. Whole Foods — as well as other Bay Area supermarkets — over the last several years as a means to call action to the chain's suppliers' alleged animal welfare violations

Watch out girls on Twitter. Carlos Danger Anthony Wiener to be released from the Gray Bar Hotel.

Convicted sexter Anthony Weiner is reportedly on track for early release from prison next May for “good conduct.”

The former New York Democratic congressman last November began serving 21 months for sexting an underage girl, and wasn’t due for release until August 2019.

The world of science embarks on a new battle. Just what the hell is a snack?

Lately, the world of snacks has been a battleground.

Once seen as a friendly gesture at work, breakroom treats like birthday cake and banana bread are now considered uncouth, and some offices have taken to sugar-shaming sweet-toothed employees. Children at some schools have been banned from bringing snacks to protect students with allergies, to reduce sugar consumption, and to keep classrooms clean. Even freewheeling, Kind-bar loving start-ups are reconsidering whether free snacks should be a standard perk. Meanwhile, startups that deliver customized high-end snack boxes, such as Naturebox and Bokksu, have built a dedicated following of snackers.

The true experts of socialism weigh in. Of course "our" experts disagree.

But some still defend socialism, saying that what happened there "isn't real socialism." Bernie Sanders says: "when I talk about Socialism I am not looking at Venezuela, I'm not looking at Cuba. I'm looking at countries like Denmark, like Sweden."

But Denmark's prime minister says that's a mistake: "Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy," he clarifies.

Being a legal voter having one's vote canceled by an illegal voter. Now that is disenfranchisement.

The U.S. Supreme Court will allow a North Dakota law requiring voters to produce government ID with a current residential street address when casting ballots to take effect.

The decision, which came Tuesday and drew a brief dissent, will affect one November’s most critical Senate races.

A group of American Indians challenged the residential street address requirement, arguing that it imposes “impossible and severe burdens on the franchise for Native American voters,” as many live on reservations or otherwise lack ordinary street addresses. A federal judge agreed and prohibited the law.

Bug or a feature? Your decision to make.

An error at California’s Department of Motor Vehicles caused more than a thousand people, including some who were not U.S. citizens, to be incorrectly registered to vote, state officials said Monday.

The DMV admitted that a “processing error” at agency field offices resulted in as many as 1,500 people being added to voter rolls between April 23 and Sept. 25.

The ONT Musical Interlude



October 10, 1902, The Gibson Mandolin guitar company was formed. Gibson's first electric guitar the ES-150 was produced in 1936, and in 1946 Gibson introduced the P-90 single coil pickup, which was eventually used on the first Les Paul model made in 1952. via thisdayinmusic.com

B. B. King has used many different Gibson models, including an ES-5 and an ES-175 early in his career; later he began using thinline hollow-body (ES-330) and semi-hollow (aka "semi-acoustic") models (ES-335 and ES-345.) King's Signature ES-355, nicknamed Lucille, has been his main guitar for many year via wikipedia.org

Just an outstanding individual. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Army medic Luis Ocampo left his home in Charlotte, N.C to help with hurricane relief on the Carolina coast. Ocampo spent days in New Bern, a riverfront city ravaged by the storm.

With Ocampo gone, his girlfriend Kailey Finch and their infant son stayed with Ocampo's parents.

When Ocampo returned home, he found his house completely ransacked. The thieves trashed the house and stole electronics, jewelry, and cherished family possessions.

THEY still think they're going to be exempt.

Watch what people are saying. Michelle Obama ain't so sure now - but Hillary Clinton is. Probably because Michelle at least knows people who have lived on The Street. Hillary never has.

This is as simple as Playing Poker. Stop playing as if your opponent will pursue their best interests as you would.

67 Way back during my formative years in college, I, along with Ms TP de joir were busted for indecent exposure relieving ourselves at a concert. My lady friend was processed almost immediately and the charge dropped because, even though her pants were off, she exposed no external pieces parts and, in the mind of the brilliant prosecutor couldn't have exposed herself.

I fought it and my charges were eventually dropped too but only after a shit ton of back and forth and legal expense.

No Associate Justice nomination for you!! Interesting though that my date went on to eventually become a county Common Pleas Judge. She was pretty lenient on pubic intoxication charges. Go figure. Not a typo btw.

Kimmel always seemed like a stupid freak to me on "The Man Show", like they were forced to give that ugly toad man a job to push his career along.
Adam always played it up for being campy, it was always a joke.

And now, ugly little Jimmy Kimmel has a big time late night talk show, and how WILL we ever get rid of him?

And curse Ben Stein too, who put him on his show "Winning Ben Stein's Money".

And those freaks will all be at the start of the line, right?

I knew we were headed for a civil war the minute he was elected, because you can't have half the population trying to ram Communism down the other half's throats without bloodshed.

216 The story about doctors and euthanasia reminds me of Niven's Future World Series.
Transplant technology had advanced so far that there was soon a shortage of parts. The government then greatly expanded the use of the death penalty down to almost parking ticket level.
Brain was removed, cremated for any relatives. Everything else went into the organ banks.
Health care was also free, of course. One child only laws and forced abortions and sterilization for any who tried to evade the rules.

217 On Wednesday, The Wall Street Journal reported that ExxonMobil had committed $1 million to a Republican-led carbon tax initiative called Americans for Carbon Dividends (AFCD). The story is a bit surprising on its face: it seems counterintuitive that an oil company would want to give money to an initiative that would tax its (considerable) carbon contribution. The other surprising factor is that some Republicans, who have traditionally resisted both climate policy and tax increases, are advocating for both.

Wife needed to go during a race and didn't want to wait in line for the port a potties. She strategicly positioned herself behind a single tree and squatted. Anyone running in the direction of travel couldn't see her. But once you passed the tree, if you turned around, you would get a full on view.

No one turned around.

253 Transplant technology had advanced so far that there was soon a shortage of parts. The government then greatly expanded the use of the death penalty down to almost parking ticket level.
Brain was removed, cremated for any relatives. Everything else went into the organ banks.
Health care was also free, of course. One child only laws and forced abortions and sterilization for any who tried to evade the rules.

254 A group of American Indians challenged the residential street address requirement, arguing that it imposes "impossible and severe burdens on the franchise for Native American voters," as many live on reservations or otherwise lack ordinary street addresses. A federal judge agreed and prohibited the law.

So the whole address thing needs a little tweaking or something.

Somehow, the many tribes here in Oklahoma manage to vote just fine with our voter ID laws. But Oklahoma AmerIndians are superior.

The more the government controls health care, the less I think they will act with my best interests in mind, particularly if a VIP is in need of an organ and I happen to be involved in an accident at just the right time. Nope.

Hillary Clinton is a preposterously evil woman who would absolutely finish what Obama started. I must admit, despite his arrogance he possessed a thin veneer of judgement. Declaring war on Russia and violently cracking down on dissidents had too many obvious flaws for him at the time. Not so for her.

Honest to God, my worry was that he would refuse to leave on grounds of his superior popularity. But, as Donald Trump is as complete a rebuke as can be hoped for? Yeah, I think he realized it was already too late.

Anyways. If they start the war now, they -will- lose. They may even lose quickly, with only their nests seriously fouled. But that might still be better, from their perspective, than waiting for the real President to hang them.

Try that on Bill Clinton, or BHO, and you'll be picking up what's left of your teeth at processing in the local jail. Their agents just love the guys and you would never get close.

Hillary... is different. For multiple reasons. You'd obviously take a beating later, and she really doesn't care if you passionately hate her so don't count on a reaction.

Say something short and punchy, though, and you can count on ruining her day. By extension, her security detail's day.

---Right! Protip - do NOT pound a cheater pipe onto a ratchet, as opposed to on a breaker bar. The ratchet can bust a tooth or three off and the pipe can smack you in the forehead whilst you are applying maximum torque resulting in about 6-7 stitches.

Project Veritas (O'Keefe) has a pretty hilariously nukyler video out about TN Senate candidate Bredesen, and his statement he'd have voted to confirm Kav if he were already in the Senate. Some of his staff - and it would seem most of them, and for some reason - believe this was a very brazen lie.

Sure, it's staffers. But ..... wow. They could be wishcasting to comfort themselves.


He'll probably lose anyway. But this is impressive, getting such radioactive stuff from campaign people.

403 Quick question :

Of the 4 Output Tubes I just replaced, two will only come up to (roughly) .27v for the pair. The other two will bias up to the reccommended .30v.

I should run all at the same values, no?
So.
Step on the hotter pair a bit and run all 4 at the .27v?

Posted by: garrett at October 10, 2018 11:14 PM (i0EID)

You have me there. Where are you measuring the bias voltage? Grid to cathode? It's only a 10% difference.

Seems to me if you were looking to balance tubes, you would want to plot plate current vs grid voltage for all your stock, and pair the tubes with the most closely-matched curves.

Definite party difference. W. did Christmas at Camp David, which is easy to secure, so most of the agents could be at home with their families.

For Christmas, Obama dragged them all to Hawaii for a couple of weeks, which sounds nice, except that they got to spend Christmas on duty away from their families.

Trump doesn't go as far as staying at Camp David for Christmas, but by all accounts, he is very friendly towards all his staff, including the guards. Trump did learn a few things from running businesses for decades.

Still doesn't tell me what the bias taps connect to, internally. I think, that for normal Class A operation, you want enough negative grid bias on your output tubes that the signal from the driver stage never drives the grids positive. We might be talking -40 volts here, and that is usually done by putting a resistor between the cathode and ground, but I have heard of using regulated "C" bias supplies.

Would there not be some engineering papers specific to the design of your amp?

Trump is a guy who is used to taking 20 pizzas to a job site for lunch and asking the actual people working on his projects how it is going and how it could be done better.

He respects the common man that makes things happen. This came through in his campaign.

Unless I'm behind on the facts - didn't think MT was near as far gone/changed as CO or NV, for example (or even NM), which not that long ago were places no current Democrat, even an 80s Democrat, ever stood a chance.

Never been in a slaughterhouse, but I would assume the bolt gun is run by compressed air, not powder, and is captive on a short length of hose, to preclude misuse.

The hog plant near where I live runs the hogs through a tunnel filled with carbon dioxide, which causes them to pass out, and then their throats are cut while they are unconscious.

You get a lot of: "I don't like the national Democrats, but Jon's a good guy."

Tester is also allowed to vote the way he wants on unimportant votes, to establish his "independence". He votes straight D on all the important votes, of course.

His challenger is a pretty milquetoast dude so that's obviously not helping - he's a CPA who has been in the House of Reps for a few terms. I didn't expect Brown to lose but a landslide just makes no sense to me.

His challenger was supposed to be Josh Mandel again but he had to drop out for family reasons. It sucks because I actually know him and I think he'd be a great Senator.

Heh, Mike.

Once I got past the B+ switching network, it seems to be a pretty typical push-pull amp, with an "ultralinear" output transformer with taps for the screen grids. And about -36 volts fixed bias on the #1 grids, compared to the -40 volts I pulled out of my ass. I still don't see where garrett is measuring the .27 volt bias figure.

I opted to run all the output tubes at the same value for a while.
Then I figure I can re-Bias and see if values have changed at all...



If not. I can start labeling and swapping?

Posted by: garrett at October 10, 2018 11:55 PM (i0EID)


Sounds cool, KT88 is definitely the way to fly if its a stereo amp. Well if its 2 trannys then you are probably dealing with the winding variation of each tranny and/or value drift on the parts on the board. You "could" change the value of the bias input resistor on the one channel which would give the adjustment pot more range, or basically change it's range, but thats a bit intricate. I had to do that few times with guitar amps. The other thing is just set the tubes to the value you can get both pairs at and at least have balance between the 2 sides. If it was a single tranny guitar amp where you're using 4 tubes with a 2 push/ 2 pull thing a variation would be a tad sucky to deal with, but with 2 independent trannys you just deal with each side as it's own thing. Just balance the pairs and be done with it. The only alternative is start changing bias resistors.

On this amp there are external testing points and bias adjustments located adjacent to each pair of Power Tubes.

These are the taps you are testing/ reading to adjust the Bias to the Specs given.

Verne Troyer, best known for his role as Mike Myers' comical sidekick "Mini-Me" in the "Austin Powers" movie franchise, died last April of suicide by alcohol intoxication, the Los Angeles County coroner's office reported Wednesday.

Troyer had a potentially fatal level of alcohol in his system and was saying repeatedly that he wanted to die when he was admitted to a Los Angeles hospital on April 3, according to the coroner's report. He died there on April 21 of multiple organ failure.

625 klaftern,

You don't want to see me when I am POed. I am old and have little patience for pissants who don't know it is extremely stupid to piss off people that you do not know to what extremes they will go to defend their honor and their life. Might as well be member of antifa or blm or the ignorant pussy hat brigrade. Anyone who shows an eye to me need blink quickly, least I take offense.

Being old has a few benefits, foremost is not suffering fools.

631 On this amp there are external testing points and bias adjustments located adjacent to each pair of Power Tubes.



These are the taps you are testing/ reading to adjust the Bias to the Specs given.



What they are tapping / giving you, re. screen etc. I don't know
off the top of my head. I am sure it is in the Manual. but that
shouldn't matter.



Berserker answered with exactly what I needed covered.

Posted by: garrett at October 11, 2018 12:26 AM (i0EID)

Well if you want to get all scientific for future reference, there are better ways to adjust bias. If that amp has a switch that allows you to go from EL34 to KT88 there is a good chance that it might be biased a bit on the cold side anyway. I go through that with the mesa rectifier amps that can switch from EL34 to 6L6. The problem is you would need to measure actual plate voltage, and find the center tap of each transformer to measure actual current. A KT88 has a max dissipation of 42 watts. "Usually" you bias to 70% dissipation to be safe, so 42 X .70 is 29.4. Without knowing the plate voltage those numbers are pretty useless, but if you knew the plate voltage, and did the math, and can measure current off the center tap you could bias the sucker nuts on. The problem with using the center tap is you are measuring serious current, not voltage, and its pretty dangerous if you aren't used to doing it. I blew up a fluke meter because when I pulled the probe back I whacked the chassis and grounded it while the other probe was on the center tap. That is the method kenny fischer from trainwreck amps used to preach, and it really does work like a charm, its amazing accurate. In the end you are really chasing the tone of the amp, so if you find a sweet spot in the range you can get with the adjustments you do actually have then you are good to go.

648 Someone may have already mentioned this, but if you haven't seen the Project Veritas video of the Bredesen campaign--it's dynamite.

Bredesen is a Democrat former TN governor who's running for Senate against Marsha Blackburn. A constant theme of his campaign has been his claim that he'll be independent of Schumer and the Dem party. As part of that effort, he announced last week that he would have voted to confirm Kavanaugh had he been in the Senate.

Well, the Project Veritas tape shows his campaign workers demonstrating how dishonest that it. He's toast.

I have to do some digging. There was a company in germany that was selling some really nice trannys cheap. I helped a friend build a Marshall 50 watt clone amp, and the thing sounded killer with those trannys. I have to ask him the name again, I can't remember. I think he got a power tranny, an output tranny, and a choke tranny for a little over $200. It was a great deal.

688 strawdog, garrett is there and knows MT's peculiarities, I have a lot of direct/indirect experience with Senate mechanics and politix. His assessment is quite plausible. He hasn't made a prediction. Of course I'm hoping Tester loses - but if he doesn't, it will be tale told many many times before in the Mountain West, by Dems, since the 1980s. One thing back home, another thing on the Hill. Mendacity that exceeds even that of half the GOP, which continues to lie to its voters and get away with it.


Speaking of mendacity, as I and now Meade Lux have noted, check out the latest Project Veritas video, revealing interesting attitudes among campaign staff for Bredesen, D candidate in TN. I always thought he was a long-shot anyway, esp. for an open seat where the odds are usually better, but this can't help. Here's the link again for those interested. Basically staff explaining how (in their view) their candidate lied about supporting Kav's confirmation, for election purposes.

692 I just watched this movie "Annihilation". I had never heard of it but it seemed like it could be interesting ... Boy, was I wrong!

It's a Grrrrl power flick with some silly use of the word "refract" and gratuitous side stories thrown in that I can't even begin to understand how they made it off the cutting room floor. I "persisted" all the way through it - as befits a Grrrl power flick - just to see if it was really as bad as it was shaping up to be. It was even worse. Horrible movie.

If any of you run across it don't bother wasting your time. It's worse than you can possibly imagine.

Most people here can brush off some elbows in the corner or a stick to the hands. Not a lot of delicate folks here.


And keep in mind that this is a self-selected group, the Horde, most reasonably assume that, wherever a Moron is located, *they* are not the problem with that state, or the country. Helps to take all sweeping regional and state generalizations in that light.

Colfax, many people here have gotten into tiffs, or fights, or heated disagreements. Most everyone cools down and comes back. Many here have also gotten the piss taken out of them (Brit saying) when they have gotten too heated. Has even happened to me and I'm adorable! JK. Was going for some humor.

788 clutch....

creeper's Irish Cream

2 cups Irish whisky
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup whipping cream
15 chocolate chips, melted
1 teaspoon instant coffee
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon almond extract

Throw it all in a blender and blend for 60 seconds. Transfer to a bottle and refrigerate.

Shake it occasionally as it chills to keep it mixed.

All quantities except milk and cream are negotiable, depending on your own taste. The 2 cups of whisky is a little stiff but not too strong when you add it to coffee.

799 Catholic Jameson:

Back in the early '80s I travelled from Brooklyn to an Upper East Side Irish bar to watch an Islander-Ranger game (from when I didn't have cable). So I ordered from the barkeep 'a pint of Guinness and a shot of Bushmill's.' The barkeep leaned over and whispered in my ear in a thick Irish brogue:

"We don't serve that Proddie shyte here."

"Um, a Jameson then.?."

"Good lad, good lad."

823 My normal opening just in case:




More Noos; today is Thursday, October 11, 2018. On this day in 1767 surveying for the Mason-Dixon line separating Maryland from Pennsylvania was completed. This border between MD and PA later became the defacto border between the Northern States and the South. I would say that demarcation should shift South a great deal and include the Eastern 1/3 of VA in the North now.




Latest
Hurricane Michael tracking chart from NOAA. Right now (2 am) we here
are under a TS warning and flood watch because it has been raining
off and on all day and night. By the time the Morons are reading
this it will be very nearly on top of me. Thankfully I still have
power right now so I can post this. No telling how long that will

867 The Carolla quote is unclear. (And no clearer when listening.) It could mean

- wrong as in false
- wrong morally to say that kind of thing
- wrong as in counterproductive

Funny it immediately follows a Lewis quote, and Lewis loved to point out such distinctions.

And personally, I'm getting tired of that sort of crap on our side. I don't blame Carolla for an off the cuff line in an oral interview. But, well, Ace seemed on the rag yesterday. I don't recall liking his stuff less. Ingraham in the interview was weak; Tucker's been below par lately.

Or maybe it's me, and I'm going through a bad stretch.

As a fellow Iowan, I would caution against throwing stones. Iowa voted twice for Obama, if you recall. And I feel sorry for red states that have blue locusts moving in and changing things...hard to stop. Meanwhile, tough for Republicans to move to failing blue states and fix them, because they're shitholes. Illinois elected an R governor, but the legislature won't support him at all, so it's a continual shitting stalemate, which ultimately hurts the gov. I suspect we'll see a dem soon.

This, my friends, is how it is done. Be unabashedly pro-America and against every disgusting thing the democrats stand for.

I will also point out Trump's non stop campaigning in this election cycle. He's like the energizer bunny. Anyone remember Bush doing this? Obama, as well, could not be bothered (and, in his defense, he was the "sh*t Midas" whenever he did).

I made him take lessons for about 8 years, but by then he had picked up the guitar.

After two months of guitar lessons his teacher came to me and said honestly, he's already beyond what I can teach him and I feel bad taking your money. I thanked him for his honesty, and said I would like him to keep coming every week and just do whatever you like because it makes my son so happy. So he did.

My recollection is different. Justice Thomas refused to bow his head to the Democrat plantation owners in the Senate, yes, and GHWB expressed his "total confidence" but I always thought at the time that confidence extended only as far as Thomas himself could take it. In other words, if Thomas couldn't take the pressure on his own, he couldn't look for help from the White House. I never thought for a moment the WH was lifting a finger to fight for Thomas' confirmation.


Maybe its always that way, and maybe you can argue Trump did only as much for Kavanaugh, but I don't think GHWB is a good example of a guy who fought for his nominee.

Early post on that.



Chief Justice Roberts has referred the BS 'ethics complaints' against Kavanaugh to the 10th District appeals court judges rather than the DC court because Garland stepped aside. Before we start attacking Roberts on this issue he didn't have much choice on this unless he wanted pull a Holder and simply ignore the law.

I've seen zero evidence to back that up, and some counter to it. In both cases, the president continued to back his candidate, but allowed the real fighting to be done by senators. (And in both cases, we saw the remarkable - even miraculous - result of real fighting from unexpected quarters. I just hope that, unlike Specter, Graham stays this way.)

It's a mistake to read our preferences onto events. At the time, I was arguing with many fellow conservatives who didn't want to give credit to Bush where Reagan had failed. But that's how it was.

Bush I was actually fantastically effective when he had a clear vision of what he wanted to do. Unfortunately, that was rare.

I think he is saying that all of this white male rage is just white guys defending their rights.

Most schools and colleges have gone to the innocent until proven guilty. Somehow being a white guy and not begging for forgiveness for every sin ever done by a white guy means you are a bad guy.

He is also saying that you cannot make me care. You want to shoot up each other in the slums? Go fit it. Want to birth more kids than you can pay for? Have at it! Want to fuck off for 13 years and the quarter million dollars spent by taxpayers to educate you? Have fun! But you want me to care? NOT GONNA HAPPEN!

...Then it's like, you know, a normal 8 inches of snow that slows the region down for like an hour in the morning while we snow blow before work and collectively shrug.

A few years ago, those kinds of warnings meant the grocery stores would be packed with people buying white bread and water. Now, people seem to ignore it. At least anecdotally.

Unless it's an icy snow that starts right during morning commute, and the roads havent been pre-treated, nothing short of a foot or so will get school cancelled usually. It goes district by district of course, I'm sure some towns are more cautious than others.

Snow on the ground at sunup.

Winter is coming.

And Hurricane Michael came up so fast, the Media didn't have time to get their propaganda machine in top gear, as they did with Florence, which dawdled out in the ocean for days.

Michale was not a dawdler. And I feel really bad for the people in the panhandle, because it was pretty damaging. My sister lived on the West Coast of Florida for years, and finally got sick of hurricane season and moved to Nashville.

See, this is what I don't get. With tornados, earthquakes, tsunamis, wildfires... there's little or no warning.

With hurricanes, you can see the fucker coming on satellite and radar for a friggin' week.

There's no excuse for ANYONE to get caught by a hurricane, as far as I can tell.

Yeah my parents live in Florida, and they've never evacuated. They're on a barrier island, but enough above sea level that they've never seen flooding. And their house is built out of concrete, with hurricane shutters for all of the windows, which is kind of ugly, but fairly wind proof.

The biggest hassle is getting back to their house after a hurricane, sometimes it's days before the roads are re-opened. So they'd rather ride it out.

And yet there is no evidence to cite apparently, because none is mentioned. And I agree it is a mistake to project our preferences onto events but was your irony meter pinging as you typed that statement?


As you yourself say, GHWB was a weak president. He was weak especially because he got beat up whenever the going got tough in his dealings with the Democrats in Congress. Thomas was yet another instance of that fact.

1007 The new President of Washington and Lee is making sad headlines, prompting me to wonder about his background.

President Dudley was raised in Arlington, so he's only nominally a Virginian, and went to Williams College. He did his graduate work in Philosophy at Northwestern. He taught for his entire career at Williams, specializing in Hegel and Kant.

No ties to WL, or even Virginia. No special relationship to the history of the place. Probably views the individuals Washington and Lee through the modern lens as slaveholders and militaristic heros. Oh well, the Trustees must have wanted change when they hired him last year, and now they have it.
