37 This country truly is inhabited by imbeciles. The tax cut law changed withholding tables. So what happened was many people paid less in tax last year but their withholding was too high. And as a result their refund was smaller or they owed taxes. And these people now thunk Trump raised their taxes.

When anyone asks how could anyone possibly want socialism? That's how. Zero understanding of even the basics of the economic world. Also the same people who take out 84 month loans on used cars.

read JackStraws link from previous post

don't know who Roscoe B Davis is, but this was interesting

Gen Flynn is a different deal, and he is aware of the sacrifices he's made, but someone had to take a bullet to get the ball rolling and he volunteered. He will be made whole again, and rewarded handsomely. Mark my words on that.

Davis paints Trump as really running the show, brilliantly, behind the scenes and Mueller is not the enemy he is being portrayed as.

I'm really hoping at least some of what he says is true.

28 And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe.

29 And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!

30 And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head.

I'm somewhat of an ass (imagine that). Back when I used to hire I would sit people down and show them a piece of paper with a number on it while telling them "this is what I am willing to spend on you". There was another piece of paper covering the rest of the page I would then move down line by line. This is what I am going to spend for your social security, this is medicare, this is state unemployment, here is what you will cost me for health insurance, etc. Last line I got to is here is what is left for you and you still need to pay your income taxes, social security and medicare out of that - still Interested?

Watched a couple Hitchcock films recently, I was looking for him, but never noticed him anywhere.

As for Stan, yeah, unobtrusive is not how I would describe it. It's like the Marvel movies stop, Stan delivers his line, and whatever character is around him, they practically wink at the camera.


Oh well, not anymore.

El Greco does mean "The Greek" *in Spanish*. He moved to Spain and did almost all of his work there.

The Scientism religion has many branches. Using pseudoscience to create a belief system around some bizarre concept that unifies their perspective on the universe. For some, it's globull warmening. For others, it's dietary nonsense. For some it's rape culture. For still others it's vaccinations.


None of these branches of the religion are incompatible with socialism. Even if/when their beliefs contradict those of other branches. It all leads back to the State and all its works.

192 Last night couldn't find anything on and ran across a PBS series called "the Dictator's Playbook", in which each episode examines the career of a different Dictator. Last night they were doing Franco, and I had been curious about some of the details, so I watched it.

It was done from a very leftist point of view, and they continually worked hard to show how cruel and terrible and very no-good he was, but in spite of all that, every time they explained a new step in his career, I found myself wanting to shout "Yeah! You GO General!!!!"

They seemed to think it was a bad thing that once he took over a town, he set to work identifying all the leftists, then he executed them all, and then he moved on. But he never had to worry about going back and winning the same ground twice.

Hitchcock's most clever cameo was in "Lifeboat" (1944). Only 9 characters, and they're floating in a small boat in the middle of an ocean. How could he do a cameo in that?

One of the characters has a newspaper, and if you look carefully as that newspaper is opened, you'll see Hitchcock's silhouette on one of the pages, just for an instant.

Texas Game Wardens test harvested deer all the time for this to stay out front of it.

Posted by: Sponge at February 07, 2019 10:28 AM


Yup, culling the herd seems like a good idea for the good of the entire species. Here in Pennsylvania I have never seen so many as there now are. The article points to fewer hunters, too. Which is only going to make matters worse over time.

Meanwhile the deer in this state are transporting the Lyme disease carrying deer tic around causing an estimated 100,000 cases per year in my county alone.

'But Bambi," they explained.

293 I can't quite put my finger on it, but I think there's some similarity between the mad deer disease and a fish thing called whirling disease. Basically the fish whirl around crazy because their brains rotted and they infect the other fish.

Deer and trout are both prized target species and they both live in somewhat unnatural environments in that they're subject to regulated predation but not natural predation.

I think when we meddle too much in nature we fuck things up.

Along the Colorado River north of Yuma (and other spots, I'm sure) there are quite a few virtual communities of people who live out of their RV's and spend the winters there - the rest of the time they generally cruise from national park to national park in the west. I hear it's very cheap. In fact I've heard some complaints by the people who have relatively inexpensive RV's that the people who have the $200,000 plus RV's all hang out in circles together and don't let their poor neighbors get close.

393 El Greco's work touches me like no other's. He lived in the age of Titian, who was himself a technically perfect artist in all aspects. By comparison, El Greco's paintings are rough and artistically unlettered, for lack of a better term, yet El Greco's paintings achieve an elevation, a transcendent quality, that even Titian's best fails to achieve, at least in my view.

I saw an El Greco exhibition at the IMA in Indy a few years ago & found myself nearly moved to tears by the power of his work. His crucifixion painting of Christ, a small painting showing only the Lord's head and face, radiated love & forgiveness & spiritual beauty with a near-overwhelming power.
