The ONT Turned Upside Down

On this day in 1781, Cornwallis surrendered to Washington (well, he had an aide do it) and England officially stopped trying to make us subjects again instead of citizens.

Yorktown.jpg

The British band played “The World Turned Upside Down” to mark the occasion. I wonder what they'd play today if they could see their descendants meekly surrendering their culture and sovereignty to foreign invaders? “Suicide is Painless”, probably.

A Republic, Ma'am, If You Can Keep It


Who and What Threaten the Constitution?

In general, free societies more often become unfree with a whimper, not a bang—and usually due to self-righteous pious movements that always claim the higher moral ground, and justify their extreme means by their self-sacrificing struggle for supposedly noble ends of social justice, equality, and fairness.



This is just a paraphrase of a famous quote, oft wrongly attributed to Thomas Jefferson -”A government big enough to give you everything you want is also strong enough to take everything you have”. Friday ONT quiz: Who really said it? Answer below.


What Trump Knows That Obama Didn’t

“Everything” isn't the answer. Rather, it is an answer, but not the right one here. Hint: It's also what the Founders knew.

Great Story

This guy found a business card from the early 20th century in the walls of his house. He posted it on a local forum at Reddit, and a bunch of internet sleuths ran down the history behind it, including the fact that the guy whose card it was tracked down a murderer in 1896. Truly an example of positive use of the internet to crowdsource a forgotten chapter in Minneapolis history.


Happy Ending

A bit of social media nastiness directed at an adult with Down Syndrome results in him finding a job at a local seafood restaurant. Look at that 10,000 watt smile, and the smiles of his coworkers in the video. Those countries that claim to have “eradicated” DS by slaughtering the people who have it are sick with sin.

What 7 ancient iconic buildings looked like during their glory days

When we visited Rome, the one book that my wife just had to have (we found it at the Vatican gift shop) was one the guide used that showed photos of current day Roman ruins with overlays that allowed you to see what they had looked like in all their glory. This is the same thing but computer generated. See the last one? The Area Sacra di Largo Argentina? That's where Caesar was assasinated.

94 I've always thought it was kind of funny that Washington refused to accept the sword offered in surrender because it was coming from Cornwallis' second; instead he made the guy offer it to *his* second, General Benjamin Lincoln. Which made sense: Washington was a stickler for protocol like that, and he wanted the British to understand that the Americans were to be treated on an equal footing.

It's just funny because Lincoln was an incompetent rube who had surrendered his whole army at Charleston the year before, and that's the guy who gets offered Cornwallis' sword.

This is absolutely amazing to me - we're finally out!

Congrats! And envy!

I'm torn on leaving. We have a house I love that's been in the family for a long time, I love the weather, and I have a lot of friends here. But ... the state is doing a swan dive into a sewage treatment plant, and they'll expect people like us to pay for it all.

That was exactly why Washington insisted; he wanted Lincoln, having surrendered, to accept the surrender.

138 IIRC, the British officer tried to surrender to the French general, Rochambeau; he declined and pointed him over to Washington.


Note: This was the high point of the Bourbon regime, humiliating the British.

Note 2: Comte de Rochambeau and Comte De Grasse (the admiral who won in Chesapeake Bay) were good, competent officers, well respected by their officers, their crews and troops, and the foes they faced, and the forces allied to them.

Note 3: USS DeGrasse was a Spruance class destroyer.

Posted by: Smaug at October 19, 2018 10:32 PM (4YsU2)


Jefferson was an asshole, and in my opinion the least important of the Founders.

The only thing that saved Jefferson's legacy was the Louisianna Purchase, which was one of the most important acts in American history. Thank G-d Jefferson was such a hypocrite because he had to go against everything he had been yelping about for years - things he had been tearing others apart over, in pathetic and nasty and untruthful ways - in order to carry out that deal. Then, he turned on a dime and went against everything he claimed for years to buy that land - a great act. The only truly great and important act that Jefferson ever accomplished, but great enough to put him in the very top echelon of American Presidents forever.

I'm just ribbin' you. Exercise if important.

The best thing you can do is one good set of push-ups every day (increasing the number as you are able). That, alone, will help to keep most of your body in shape. But you have to do good push-ups and not cheat. One set a day, every day. And this will make all the other exercises you do that much more effective.

And never forget to stretch well. Very important.

The only thing that saved Jefferson's legacy was the Louisianna Purchase, which was one of the most important acts in American history. Thank G-d Jefferson was such a hypocrite . . . .

-------------------

There are a very few people who are actually deathly allergic to it. I've got a friend who claims to fall into that category. That's not the only food allergy she has.

For the rest, so far as I can tell it's just another health fad.
I was talking with someone who has the allergy (not the friend I mentioned above), and she said that the fad is a mixed blessing for her. She can find a lot more stuff now that's gluten free. But at the same time, some of the companies cheat with their products since the people only doing it for the fad will never know the difference. So something with the label - even at a restaurant - can still cause her to get sick.

Posted by: Smaug

I don't like Jefferson, Smaug, and I agree he was a dreadful hypocrite. But, sadly, he could not possibly have freed his slaves, as he was so deeply in debt as to be utterly crippled, financially. I know, I know, that sounds utterly nuts, what with all the books and the wine and what-not. But had he attempted to free his slaves, 1) the slaves would not have been freed; and 2) they would have been sold individually to pay Jefferson's debts.

It stinks, I know. But Jefferson, with the best will in the world (which I, personally, will not grant him) could not have emancipated his slaves.

Washington was flawed, but a much better man than most.

I only partially successfully unsubscribed to their seven or so direct mailing lists (and unknown number of third party mailing lists) after about nine months.

Posted by: chavez the hugo


My great, great grandfather in my Welsh lineage and his family lived there in the late-1870s to 1880. He died of some sort of fever in Early June of that year but was alive on the official 1880 Census date so he made it onto the ennumeration rolls. Anyway, he was in his casket and on display in the homestead but the weather was so hot that he "swole up" and burst the casket. That last detail came about through testimony from his widow when she was seeking the Civil War pension of her late second husband who, unknown to her, had not divorced his first wife when she married him. She did not get the pension. I'm convinced that news of that arrived in the mail the very day she died and the shock of that contributed to her death.

DeGrasse I do not know.

I have a biography of Rochambeau that I read about twenty years ago. He became the chief general of the French Army after the American Revolution. During the French unpleasantness he was imprisoned and threatened with execution after the French armies initially did poorly after the revolution.* The foreign invasions, (IIRC), helped bring about the end of the Terror, and after the crisis of the Terror passed and the revolutionary armies had some triumphs he was released and was able to go home, and Comte de Rochambeau passed away.

375 The only thing that saved Jefferson's legacy was the
Louisianna Purchase, which was one of the most important acts in
American history. Thank G-d Jefferson was such a hypocrite because he
had to go against everything he had been yelping about for years -
things he had been tearing others apart over, in pathetic and nasty and
untruthful ways - in order to carry out that deal. Then, he turned on a
dime and went against everything he claimed for years to buy that land -
a great act. The only truly great and important act that Jefferson
ever accomplished, but great enough to put him in the very top echelon
of American Presidents forever.
Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at October 19, 2018 10:38 PM (nEXx0)


Jefferson went ahead and bought it because it was such a good deal, and there had been concerns that part of the reason Napoleon was trying to retake Haiti was to control the whole of the Gulf of Mexico. With the Spanish possessions he could have done it too.

Jefferson expected Congress to pass a law to permit it or impeach him over it, but Congress just basically said he could do that if he really wanted, and then got in on land speculation.

It's tough if your body isn't strong enough. I started after a heart attack and I could hardly walk a block. Worse in the winter but I started pacing in my house.

I would've preferred somewhere further south but then I couldn't have moved piecemeal over months and the property prices were more than I could afford.

PA is a decent state for retirees and I live in an area that is rural but not in the sticks so I could actually get around without a car if I had to. property taxes got readjusted and believe it or not they went down for me so that's an extra.

Welcome to Khobar Towers and Suites, news persons.

439 Alright, it's late enough in the evening for me to bug you with another story. It's got many words, my apologies, but it's fun.

My boss at the school, in addition to his duty as school director, plays drums in a rock band that plays around the local bars.

On occasion his guitarist, a long-haired 26 year old, will stop by the school while I am teaching, grab a beer out of the fridge and hang out, so I have gotten to be friends with him.

He popped in last night, which was his birthday with my boss and they both told me they had already voted (for Marsha Blackburn) and I asked Jim the guitarist when he started voting and why Republican.

His story was this, he dated a SJW chick from a very liberal family a few years back and every time a political or social issue came up in conversation and he would try to voice his opinion, she would tell him to shut up, that he didn't vote so his opinion didn't matter.

Sick of the treatment, he went and registered to vote and voted for the first time in the 2016 presidential election. The next time politics came up, she stated the same thing, to which he responded "But I did vote" and produced his voter registration card and showed her a picture on his cell phone where he selected Trump on the ballot.

He said she got furious and said she couldn't date a misogynist or a racist. He countered that he would never have voted if she hadn't told him he had to. She said it didn't matter, she wouldn't date a Trump voter.

So this year he voted for Marsha Blackburn, took the picture of it and texted it to her as welll as a picture of his new hot girlfriend in a MAGA hat. He says he is now a conservative voter for life.

Anyone remember a candy bar called (I think) 7 Up. It had 7 sections, 1 like a Mounds bar, 1 like a Mars, 1 with a caramel center, etc. Used to really enjoy those. It was as if you had a single bite of each of your favorites.

The guy was connected. He had ties to Saudi Intelligence before 9/11, in addition to his ties with Bin Ladin (the two might actually be related...). So he did know a lot about the Middle East. If he hadn't been MB, then he actually could have been quite useful to any news organization that was interested in having a good Middle East analyst on staff.

Also, the current Middle East flavor of the month among the progs is anti-House of Saud, pro-Iran. I don't know how well he'd mesh with the latter, but he'd definitely match up with the former.

I would point out that one of the first things he did on being elected to Virginia House of Burgesses (Virginia colonial legislature) was to propose a law to end slavery. He was verbally abused by just about every other member.

He also wound up rewriting the rules on inheritance for the state that ended primogeniture and entailment to the eldest child, which broke up the great estates the size of Rhode Island.

He was very much a polymath, and one of those people that look into everything. He was not a modern man, and he did not have modern attitudes.

Kevin Gutzman refers to him as a sort of "American Phillippe Egalite", the fabulously wealthy and powerful scion of immensely powerful families who chose equality over his own ascension to even grater state and power.

Gutzman admits that he has no idea why.

520 Wikipedia says Chick o sticks for the name because one of the sales guys thought it resembled fried chicken.

522 Anyone remember a candy bar called (I think) 7 Up. It had 7 sections, 1 like a Mounds bar, 1 like a Mars, 1 with a caramel center, etc. Used to really enjoy those.

I remember those. They were made by a company called Pearson's that discontinued them in 1979. Pearson's web site says that they began making 7 Up bars in 1951 after they acquired the Trudeau (no joke) Candy Company in 1951.

524 309 @293 Personally I think it is all a con to get people to buy over-priced non gluten products.
-------------------

There are a very few people who are actually deathly allergic to it. I've got a friend who claims to fall into that category. That's not the only food allergy she has.

For the rest, so far as I can tell it's just another health fad.
I was talking with someone who has the allergy (not the friend I mentioned above), and she said that the fad is a mixed blessing for her. She can find a lot more stuff now that's gluten free. But at the same time, some of the companies cheat with their products since the people only doing it for the fad will never know the difference. So something with the label - even at a restaurant - can still cause her to get sick.
Posted by: junior


Yeah, I said "all a con" even though I knew about celiac's and how serious it can be. The other downside for people who have celiac's is that food preparers and the rest of us see so many of the fad people that those with the actual allergy aren't always taken seriously. The same thing happens with peanut allergy.

553 So both Dolley and I are in the hospital.

Junior had a nasty stomach bug yesterdaythat he got through fairly and relatively easily.

But, when we caught it there was a wrinkle.

We haven't really told anyone yet, but she's pregnant 9 weeks with our second child, so when she couldn't keep anything down for 12 hours, we needed to come here. I drove her and junior, but 5 minutes from the hospital my own rendition of the illness got significantly worse. I had to pull to the side of the road and vomit in some bushes. Sorry bank.

Anyway, we both checked in and junior is sleeping with his mother in the next room.

This night has been awful. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.

Concords are a Northern grape. I don't know how well they travel.

Junior had a nasty stomach bug yesterdaythat he got through fairly and relatively easily.

But, when we caught it there was a wrinkle.

We haven't really told anyone yet, but she's pregnant 9 weeks with our second child, so when she couldn't keep anything down for 12 hours, we needed to come here. I drove her and junior, but 5 minutes from the hospital my own rendition of the illness got significantly worse. I had to pull to the side of the road and vomit in some bushes. Sorry bank.

Anyway, we both checked in and junior is sleeping with his mother in the next room.

This night has been awful. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated.

680 I used to be a candy buyer for a long gone department store in Indianapolis, and later managed a hospital gift shop, where I had to purchase and restock candy. (Doctors, nurses, and patients eat a lot of candy!) Best sellers by far were always Snickers and Reese's cups. Hot Tamales, not so much, although Atomic Fireballs were quite popular.

On July 18, 2016, Hassan Afshar, 19, was hanged in Arak Prison in Iran's Markazi Province. The sole "crime" he was charged with was being homosexual. He was arrested when he was 17.

As we all know, as a result of this revolting execution, the Obama Administration broke off diplomatic relations with Iran, suspended the nuclear agreements with Iran, and let a world-wide campaign to demonize and delegitimize Iran.

Oh wait - the Obama Administration did none of that.

Afshar wasn't buds with the Washington Post, so the Democrats could have cared less when he was executed.

He was in Turkey. Went into the Saudi embassy supposedly and hasn't been seen since. He wrote a few opinion pieces for WaPo so of course he's a "journalist" so his death is the worst thing ever because Trump is the current president.

What they want to ignore is that he was a vocal critic of the prince that is pushing for all the reforms to modernize Saudi Arabia. You know like clamping down on Wahhabism and getting friendly with Israel. And he is a Muslim Brotherhood member and had connections to Bin Laden.

"Saudi Arabia admitted for the first time on Friday that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in the regime's consulate in Turkey, claiming he got into a 'fist fight' that cost him his life.

The assessment by the Saudi attorney general was broadcast on state television.

The broadcast also reported that five top officials have been fired and 18 Saudi nationals detained as suspects in the death."

Before even reading the article I KNEW the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates would be on it. Those hats (which I had!! I was proud of it, dammit!!) and the banana colored uniforms. Still, they won a WS that year so it wasn't that bad. I'm beginning to think the only way they will win another is if the Baltimore Orioles get competitive again too. The Buccos have won 5 WS. The last 2 against the Orioles. Without looking, I believe they beat the Yankees twice and the Tigers once. That was before color TV. The first 2 were before TV.
