The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

The late Jennifer Lynch, QC, then head of the Canadian "Human Rights" Commission, used to talk about "balancing" free speech with other rights - and, then as now, "balancing" is code for nullifying: If your right to free speech has to be balanced with people's "feelings", then as a practical matter there is no free speech. Mark Steyn


Quote II

Again, I bear no animus toward you. I wrote not “pot-shots,” but simply quoted your own words—as did hundreds of other writers and journalists who found them emblematic, as I did, of a cultural and political denseness that helps to explain the Trump victory. Your current scurrilous tweet alleging that I am a Nazi sympathizer only confirms your original unhinged posting. So not only do you write recklessly and inaccurately, but you display a certain crudity perhaps unbecoming of a CEO of a corporation. That you couch your views with an aura of self-assumed cultural superiority is really quite sad. Victor Davis Hanson

Cheese is good stuff. Can one improve it? One cheese maker is attempting to do so via music.

But one cheese enthusiast in Switzerland has taken his passion to a new level. Beat Wampfler of Burgdorf, Switzerland has been playing music from the likes of Led Zeppelin to his cheese to see if this will make it taste better.

Pass the popcorn, while the needles and shit are cleaned off the streets of San Francisco and billionaires duke it out.

Politicians and tech executives are split on San Francisco’s Proposition C, which would impose an annual 0.175 to 0.69 percent tax on businesses with over $50 million in gross receipts and would double the city’s current spending on services for the homeless. And while many have spoken out about their position ahead of Tuesday’s vote—including but not limited to Twitter’s Jack Dorsey, who opposes Prop C—two tech company heads are duking it out on Twitter.

Mark Pincus, the billionaire founder behind American game developer Zynga, tweeted Saturday that Prop C was “the dumbest, least thought out prop ever” and instructed his followers to “get the facts and vote no.” Responding to the tweet early Sunday morning, CEO of Salesforce and Prop C proponent Marc Benioff chimed in, asking Pincus to detail a plan for addressing the city’s homelessness and requesting information about what Zynga, in particular, is doing for them now.

The Founding Fathers must be spinning in their graves. The 2nd Amendment and the right to protect yourself really doesn't exist in Massachusetts.

(T)he First Circuit of the US Court of Appeals ruled that the right to self-defense is at its “zenith inside the home,” and the right is “plainly more circumscribed” outside.


“The “core right” protected by the Second Amendment is for citizens to use arms in defense of home, the court said in its decision. “Public carriage of firearms for self-defense falls outside the perimeter of this core right.”

The USA has been involved in Afghanistan for quite some time. It is time to evaluate our presence. Taliban is on the offensive and productive.

The Taliban stormed yet another Afghan military base overnight, this time in the western province of Farah near the border with Iran. All but three of the border policemen manning the outpost were either killed or captured, according to reports.

Farah is the fourth military base to fall to the Taliban in just the first six days of November.

Loud pipes save lives Harley-Davidson to offer an electric motorcycle.

Harley-Davidson released further details on Tuesday about its forthcoming, highly anticipated electric-powered motorcycle, the LiveWire.

A production model of the HD LiveWire was unveiled at the EICMA show in Milan on Tuesday. The urban-ready design includes features including seven—or more—riding modes and a fully adjustable Showa suspension, which offers extra control for city riding conditions. Riders will be able to accelerate the all-electric, aluminum frame bike with a twist of the throttle—no clutching or gear shifting necessary.

The NRA has sued New York state, claiming their 1st Amendment rights were being stomped on. Their lawsuit can continue.

The NRA claims, though, that state officials did more than just enforce insurance law, or punish the NRA and the insurers for violations of the insurance law. Rather, the NRA argues, the officials tried to pressure banks and insurers who were subject to New York law (which many major banks and insurers are, since they do business in New York) to stop dealing with the NRA altogether—and that the reason for this was the NRA's politics. Today, U.S. District Court Judge Thomas A. McAvoy allowed the NRA's free speech claims to go forward (though not their other claims). Here's an excerpt from the opinion, NRA v. Cuomo, which I think is quite correct on this point:

Blue wave! Never heard of it.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada brothel owner and reality TV star Dennis Hof died last month but still won a heavily GOP state legislative district after fashioning himself as a Donald Trump-style Republican candidate.

County officials will appoint a Republican to take Hof’s place in the state Assembly. He was found dead Oct. 16 after a weekend of parties celebrating his 72nd birthday. Officials are still determining his cause of death, but they don’t suspect foul play.

He beat Democratic educator Lesia Romanov for Nevada’s 36th Assembly District, which includes rural communities and large stretches of desert in the southern part of the state.


A new way to spell loser, Lesia.

“She said my son is being held against his own will for ransom money and I believe he’s a drug dealer,” Sheriff Pickell explained to WJRT.

18 I'm tired. I'm tired of all the bloviating bulls**t, of politics being reduced to sad attempts to achieve emotional catharsis where machiavellian reality is substituted with "feelz". I'm tired of giving fair warning and proffering þe olde panic button. I'm tired of the heroin shot of #winning that so many are addicted to. I'm tired of the "pwning" and the childish nonsense that means nothing in reality. I'm sick of the incompetency and the delusions some have that their blind faith will move mountains, or justify excuses and nonsense. Perhaps most of all, I'm sick and tired of those who know better, but would rather inflate their ego and/or earn a buck off of the emoting of others. It just ain't worth wasting my time over.

There's no way MA's gun laws fit within the Heller framework either. I expect a smack down of this at SCOTUS.

33 The libs use "nazi" for any exercise of power they don't like. They enjoy well enough the power of the state--but if they don't like any legitimate use of it, it's back to "nazi".

I often tell libs that they probably don't know shit about Nazism. And they typically don't. As a Christian and a believer in the orderly rule of law, who would gradually slide conservative, intense self-directed study into what Fascism and Nazism is was only self-defense.

34 Thought experiment...

Jim Acosta is walking down the street with an open bottle of beer. An officer notices this, tells Acosta he can't do that, open container and all, and Acosta becomes loud and belligerent.

Officer reaches in to take the open glass bottle away, from him, and Acosta does to the officer exactly what he does to that WH staffer.

It's the obverse side of the coin from people who oppose the death penalty, "except for ..."

Hey, if you recognize any exceptions, then you're on board with it. Now we're just arguing over details.

Similarly, if you support free speech, "except for ..." then you're not on board with free speech.

Trust me, that's all pops and buzzes to the leftists. In their confusion at how to actually parse an argument not coming from them, they will fall back into the pattern of "debunking"-first. And the entire point will elude them for the attraction of some phrasing which can be free-associated into some sort of "support" for Badthink.

I don't give a rat's ass about motorcycles (no offense), but Harleys are too expensive to be starter bikes. They are well-off middle-aged dude's bikes.

It's like me buying a .25ACP pocket pistol for my mid-life crisis instead of the Ruger GP100 .357 Magnum I actually bought.

For fuck's sake, if you want an electric vehicle, just go buy that very fast Jaguar electric car with the motor on each wheel.

140 MisHum, interesting you mention Harleys...

Just typed up some legal stuff a few nights ago... I can't go into much detail... but...

Long story short, a state worker (can't mention which state) was, it turns out, using his work car as his personal vehicle, even though he was forbidden to take it off state property.

So one time, he's pulling his car out of the driveway to the street, and a high-as-a-kite guy on a Harley plowed right into the back of him, getting himself killed in the process. Harley guy was going way over the speed limit, too.

Of course the Harley driver's family sees a big payday (this $tate ha$ deep pocket$) and is now suing.

From what I hear, the Motorcycle industry is about to get hit with the same safety and CAFE standards that the auto industry is collapsing under.

I think Harley-Davidson is just trying to get ahead of the wave.

I also suspect that in the near future the principal use of the "ghost gunner" CNC mills will be to create bootleg aftermarket engines for green bikes.

Young people aren't buying Harley's

Posted by: Misanthropic Humanitarian at November 07, 2018 10:27 PM (Ss+Em)

And the older riders aren't going to be caught dead on that abomination. The younger dudes actually are buying harleys, well around here anyway. The problem is there are soooo many of them out there that you can buy 3 excellent used ones for the price of a new one, and thats just what is happening. People are building collections of used ones. The new ones are too pricey, a frigging sportster is 12K. All harley needed to do was get real with the prices, build some bad ass stuff, and stop building for the fags who will sell the damn things as soon as they drop it once. I see it all the time. Fag boy thinks he'll get laid if he owns one, then drops it trying to back it up into a parking space, yells for mommy, bike gets sold...cheap. In a nutshell, harley fucked up trying to be all things to all people. Its like they forgot who their base is. The last time harley got in trouble they released the 883 with a price tag of $3995, and they sold a shit ton of them, they were almost like a gateway drug. If this flashlight battery on wheels is what they come up with then god help them.

No, and neither does anyone else because apparently all of Sessions' behind-the-scenes work is such a super-duper top secret that nobody's heard anything at all about it for two whole years.

No. Thing.


He did wake up long enough to sign his resignation, which he should've done about three months into his term. But he did what DC Mafia don Shuck Fumer told him to do, which was stall and fuck around for all this time while our elites get away with felonies and laugh about it.

However, it was pretty positive. Got a bit of feedback, that something I did as a matter of routine found something missed by our fancy-pants outside counsel and was very important; as in, I earned by salary for the year because of it.

also shot dead 27 other mammals during the three day event. via

I love Uncle Ted for his politics. Also, I think he's a great guitarist. Can take or leave his big songs.
That said, I think this factoid might be BS. I can find no record (via google, YMMV) of this info no earlier than 1997 In addition, hitting a squirrel sized object at 150 yds "with a bow" as my search engine efforts claims, while not impossible, is no mean feat.
If this is legit (bow, rifle, or otherwise), and I hope it is, please let me know.

267 it is feasible that having Pelosi squawking her hate for a couple years will actually help Trump 2020, and Ryan/Mitch only managed massive ominbus spending, so at least now it will have Pelosi's name on it.


But the big win is the senate and now being able to confirm a new AG and others. Lindsay had already said Trump should have an AG he could have confidence in ... after the election. So maybe it was happening anyway ... but with some declassifying of the real operation against the duly elected Prez ... America could be given a big red pill to swallow.

You're so right about the older riders. Harley is selling a lot of trikes to the die-hards at a very pretty penny. But plenty of boomer bikers are packing it in, and the used market is reflecting that.
I won't buy a Harley for reasons I won't go into, but lately I've been tempted by the prices of used garage princesses.

I think they're stepping on their dicks and doing the right thing at the same time. They've got to change or die, so mistakes might be made, but to expect that they will continue to build a 50's style cruiser midway into the 21st century is unrealistic.

423 Don't forget the casual conversation after the gun goes off a time or four in the car.

I've been told, and often one can see in the credits, that movies and other projects will make use of firearm and combat experts to consult on the proper use of weapons and fighting techniques.

Yet, what we see on film make look cinematically cool, but in reality would make for a number of Darwin Candidates.

I've come to the conclusion that they do get this advice in the form of anti-patterns - demonstrating the exact wrong way to hold a firearm (e.g. turned half way over one handed while the other hand is grabbing one's own crotch while leaning back).

This is why, so many people trained to fight by watching movies prefer handling a gun that totally rejects all weapons retention techniques, or fighting moves made up mostly of comically easy to defend against hay-makers.

They do this to punk the perps who take movies as criminal technical schools - guides and tips for engaging in violent crime.

So that LEOs and other moderately trained individuals can easily defend and neutralize these movie students.

424 A pet husky recently got his owner in trouble after escaping its enclosure, going into a neighboring farm and spending an entire night killing chickens.

The husky's name was 'Bill Kristol'. Or it could have been.

But after checking around his farm for clues, the man actually found the perpetrator - his neighbor's husky dog with a dead chicken in its mouth.

The husky does have an alibi -- It was on CNN that night.

friend noticed he had way too many birds and that most of them were plain old chickens.

his basset hound had gotten bored and started going to their neighbor's place, grabbing their chickens and putting them in the pen.

everyone was fine with it and every so often our friend would swing by the neighbor's place with a bunch of chickens to return.

What specific behaviors do you associate most with "Bad Boys" and more importantly what do your peers view as most essential to being a "Bad Boy"? Emulate these long enough and you'll get a general idea of what to do and say in specific situations.

Also, if you look like a "Bad Boy" then people are more likely to think you're one regardless of how you act or what you say to a certain extent.

Right, and beyond that -- just accept that people's opinions don't really matter that much.

In my life, I've had people who loved me. People who hated me. People who tolerated me.

I can't spend my days worrying about this shit.

Now, obviously take social feedback -- if everyone thinks you're an asshole, you're probably an asshole and need to change your behavior.

but if it's a mixed bag -- gravitate towards people who like you and people like those people.

Def Leppard is good. I read Phil Collen's autobio. Most of these guys who make it big have a certain... something going for them.

In Collen's case, the ladies (heart) him with his shirt off. As Roger Daltrey said, "I've always been a fit lad."

Sammy Hagar had to INSIST those 3 ballads be included on VH albums. By the time Hagar joined, VH was messed up. Those ballads prolly extended VH viability as a top chart band by 5 years, imo.

If a beneficiary of your will dies within 120 hours of you, under the uniform probate code, they're deemed to have died simultaneously.

Upside, with more of a cushion in the Senate we don't get held hostage by the Flakes of the world and we get all of our judges.

When the Dems have the presidency we think divided government is a good thing. America mostly thinks divided government is a good thing. We're OK.

Star Trek: Discovery seems to be the STD no one wants. Netflix demanded a steep discount for Season 2 which is in the can. But they had to modify the last episodes of Season 1 to bring in Enterprise with Pike, Number One, and Spock. Plus the Klingons got their hair back. And apparently the stupid writers made Pike a caricature of a Catholic. CBS tried to entice Netflix with four shorts but Netflix laughed at CBS.

Just watch the video. STD is the least watched Trek show. The guy now responsible for guiding STD has had spectacular failures with Spiderman and Universal's bomb of a Mummy reboot. Now they are bringing in two 'new' Trek series. One will be with Picard. The other is supposed to be an animated comedy about what goes on aboard Enterprise below decks and will be done by the guy who gave us Rick and Morty

I have a real bad feeling about all of this.

Because STD seems to be in the Kelvin Trek universe, even the Enterprise you see is different and bigger than the one in the original series to avoid legal issues.

I agree. I finally decided on it as its own little universe. Didn't try to link it.

That series had the misfortune of being impacted by the 9/11 attacks. They changed a lot of their storyline to make parallels. It got really dark. I think it was too much for people. It is why the cancellation happened.

What's really not funny is just how utterly chickenshit the Hollywood crowd is. There is a metric fuckton of good science fiction/space opera stories out there that could make for exciting television shows. But because Starr Trek TOS was a big hit, none of them want to do anything but make more pale imitations of it, and hope the magic rubs off.

They also released an "N7 Day" video that's largely silly, though it does suggest that they have future plans for the franchise.


Though given what's happened with the last two releases (and I say this as someone who very much enjoyed Andromeda), as well as the general direction of the company's writing the last several years, I'm not hopeful.

OK, so I just looked at the link for the first time. Question: if they made an electric bike in a naked standard, why don't they just put an actual gasoline engine in the same frame instead? I bet they'd sell a lot more than they will electrics.

BULLSHIT.

years ago, in my first! j*b as an Rx tech, i had a boss who called me in for a closed door meeting. (never good)

he told me that i had no friends, had never had any friends, and would never have any friends until i went through *years* of intensive psych therapy. (his words)

yes, he had a psych minor in his Bachelors, and was on his Xth divorce. he was also a candy ass of the first! order.

he was full of shit, and you are too... get up and get on it. i'm no Lothario, and no catch either, and i've probably prevaricated my way out of more pussy than i've ever gotten, but you can do this.

the maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters, and that's for a *good* excuse.

get on with your bad self.

Yeah. Star Trek is pretty much on life support at this point, and it's mostly because the adults didn't realize hiring a bunch of woke people to write and produce the show was a really bad idea.

I especially liked the part about how Moonves was foisting #MeToo PSAs on guys who would be fired in a heartbeat for telling a dirty joke at the same time he was chasing interns around the desk.

707 Casting back in my memory banks, I do remember disliking the Andorians in other instances/series.

In Enterprise they made them more likeable, and then there were the ones who lived in ice. Plus, they helped save the Universe and Enterprise.

I've done some really great compartmentalizations. Have separated them out from their meaner ancestors. Heh.

Shortly after the Weinstein stuff came out in the open, and people started to talk about other powerful individuals at those companies that were causing problems, I had people at work noting to me that all the sex harassment "training" and similar nonsense that we have to go through is largely because of those idiots. Most employees are very much aware of what you aren't supposed to do, and that they'll get fired in an instant if they try any of that. But the powerful people know that they can get away with it. And when word eventually comes out about what they've been doing, everyone EXCEPT the people in their positions has to undergo more "training".

Loved KOTOR. Loved Dragon Age, even 2. Love Mass Effect so much I named my puppy Tali and gave her a purple collar, and if I ever get another boy dog I might name him Garrus. Still pissed about the ending of 3. Still haven't finished Andromeda, thought the combat is good but the stupidity of going "classless" for your main character and no control of your party was awful. Anthem does not hold any real interest to me.

That's exactly what happened in my last company. Important people got caught banging someone lower in the food chain, so the company spread money around feminist pressure groups and added another hour of "civil treatment for employees" to our calendar. Thousands of us. As if it was a problem of understanding rather than a problem of self control.

These guys all had golden parachutes, too. They had a lot more to worry about from the wife than anything the company would do.

no one was attacked. have you read the history and advice which has been given? tonight reached the depths of "become a bad boy", which was ejected for having already been tried unsuccessfully. the conclusion now is that years of intensive cognitive behavioral therapy must be the way to go.

simply gave very reasonable useful advice. whatever you circumstances, reinforcing your inability to solve them is not going to help you, especially when you do it every night forever. there is a difference between venting and self-deprecation.

For TNG the writers decided to split the two roles Captain Kirk had - the brash, sexy, adventurous side and the experienced captain into two people: Riker and Picard, respectively.

The funny part is almost universally women thought Picard embodied all of Kirk's traits, so the Riker character was basically a fifth wheel. He was painfully boring. I don't think that was all or even mostly Jonathan Frakes' fault, either. It's just that Riker was written by a bunch of guys who have no idea what makes a man attractive to women.

To be fair, their trying to make something exciting to audiences that for the most part don't know anything about guns. Even when the consultant is telling them "Hey, if you did that you'd be deaf" or "If you shot an RPG from inside a small room you'd kill yourself" they go for the exciting shot anyway.

It's not just guns, either. The medical mistakes they make are horrifying - if someone stabs you in the abdomen just stitching up the skin at the entry point is not going do the trick.

Sure, but the digital format is more convenient for Amazon as well.

I remember when mass market paperbacks went from, like, $1.99 to $4.99. "It's because paper is the dominant cost, and paper is more expensive now" we were told. But if you look at the cost of a new book from a popular author for your kindle they want something like $14. "The printing costs are really lost in the noise" they say. "The expensive part is the advance on books that don't earn out plus all the other services publishers offer."

It all seems convenient, all right.

I have 2 friends that went through what he did, and they had it waaaay worse. One moved on, one ended up homeless talking to trees in the woods. Seriously, from a 350K a year job to talking to trees. I only try to give him advice because I saw 2 opposite results from the same situation. The friend of mine that moved on and did ok, well his first wife died suddenly in her 20's and left him with a couple month old baby. It was the second wife that put him through the ringer, but I think after losing his first wife he was already battle hardened and didn't have much of a problem, other than the bitch getting half his retirement, the house, and half his paycheck. In the end, one succumbed, the other punched it in the face with a fire hydrant. Its about choices.

Skip sometimes checks back on the morning thread... I checked the congressional map a couple minutes ago. Sure enough, he in Montgomery County, me in Chester County were re-districted to be included with the city of Philadelphia. So our suburban locations, which *could* bounce back and forth every election will now be tossed into the Philadelphia mix from which now a (D) will always represent us.

On the Axios map (link below) our area is indicated by a blue lined area which indicates it 'flipped' for the (D)'s. Which is only partially true.

Acosta was rude, was doing little more then lecturing his opinion to the President of the United States, and refused to surrender his microphone when he had clearly been dismissed.

The White House has a responsibility as employer to provide a safe work space for its interns, free from physical abuse. Acosta should 'man up' and apologize for his actions in writing.

But being the insufferable prick he is he'll double down and CNN will defend the indefensible.

About 12:30 a.m. PST, the suspect ''was still believed to be inside the bar,'' the Los Angeles Times reported. Witnesses said the shooter was a Middle Eastern man with a beard, according to the Star.

And it happens again and again and again from him and dozens of other MSM NPCs.

I don't get those responses at all. What Breitbart said was "War", not "Rage". There's a big difference between fighting smart and just bulling into things. It's the difference between Hannibal Barca and Gaius Terentius Varo. Too many of us seem to think the latter is a model.

O'Keefe got the message; his tactics embarrass them. It does little good if they aren't demoralized or at least exposed; and this won't, much, if we use the "assault" argument. Much better to hit him where everyone sees he's vulnerable: the self obsessed and selfish twit who hasn't asked an actual question in ages. His questions are all speeches. Every one can see that.

The "Fight Fight Fight Attack Attack Attack" shit doesn't do that, or much else either. And, BTW, that is characteristic of how David French has always thought.

942 How the fvck can you not have certified "early-voting fraud" ballots the day after a fvcking election.

They don't want to count them because it takes effort and you are dealing with people who either do this voluntarily or for less than minimum wage.

If the votes were counted, then it would leak to whatever party pays for the leak and they would do so to know how many votes they need to manufacture for election day.

Early voting is all about fraud, they selling it on any other alleged virtue is a lie.

Yes, they don't ask questions of Trump, they just make accusations and try to debate him. That's exactly what Acosta was doing yesterday before he assaulted the intern. He asked Trump why he called the "migrant caravan" an invasion. Trump said it's what they are. Acosta says no, they're just migrants who want to come to the U.S., and then he tries to debate Trump on the definition.

In fact, the "migrant caravan" was organized by a Honduran leftist group as an invasion force. They paid the marchers to go on the trek. They stated that their intent was to enter the U.S. The marchers have had logistical support along the way by a variety of anti-American leftist groups, including some funded by Soros. The Guatemalan and Mexican border authorities have reported that the "migrants" are violent, have assaulted law enforcement personnel in both those countries, and have been caught with bombs and bomb-making materials. (And Americans, including Trump, have seen the videos of the "peaceful migrants" pushing and assaulting Guatemalan border guards and crushing the border gates as they swarmed illegally across that border).

The argument that these are "peaceful migrants seeking asylum" is an obvious lie, and one that even a fool like Acosta could not reasonably believe. But for some reason he thinks he has the right to stand in the president's house and argue with him about it.
