The Morning Rant

"Look at that Vox tweet down below and laugh heartily. But cry, too. Because the guy who wrote it obviously knows nothing about the two psychopaths he's writing about. And that's by design. Ever since the progressives managed to hijack education, the goal of education has been to raise up another generation of left-wing activists rather than to impart facts, knowledge, and the values of the civilization they were born into. Or to even teach useful trades or other job skills

"It's like when you see some discoloration on the wall or floor of a part of your house you don't frequent much, and you call in a specialist who looks at it and tells, "oh hey, that's dry rot. You need to get that taken care of." And so you have him examine things further and he discovers really extensive dry rot underneath the floor and then multiple rooms are involved and you suddenly realize that this rot has been spreading for years and you never knew, you never saw, you were blissfully unaware until you finally saw it when it was too late.

"The same thing has been going on with our education system. And that ignorant-by-design Vox writer, he's like when the rot suddenly becomes visible. We're shocked, and we think, holy crap, how can anyone be so ignorant, but this is not a hiccup or an anomaly. Years, decades, of deliberate, calculated ignorance have gone into this. It has been building up for years and is now bursting out of the walls. Because its swollen malignant magnitude has become so great, it can no longer be contained. You think the Vox guy is an idiot? Remember that guy from the Obama admin who says that the average journalist is 27 years old and they don't know anything? It's only going to get worse. Education is still being run by progressives and there's no end in sight. So the manufactured ignorance will continue unabated. We really have nothing at this point with which to stop the dry rot.

"Happy Thanksgiving, everybody.

"Oh, and on another subject: the latest progressive, anti-Trump/NeverTrump talking point is this: The people who support the president are in a cult. Look for them to be pushing this hard as their impeachment efforts sputter and fizzle out, and more people laugh at them."

16 Bonnie and Clyde were psycho killers and deservedly riddled with bullets. Trying to compare a fictionalized couple portrayed as innocent victims of a racist country to Bonnie and Clyde goes beyond any dumb scale.

55 One way stupid people get rich, throw all their money into Amazon or Dell (back in the day) and trust government to "turn those machines back on" whenever markets would naturally correct toward sanity.

Easy money monetary policy has been in effect since 1985, with the addition of Free Global Trade that allowed Wall Street to profit while using China to hide the slaves and pollution. There is indeed "magic" to free money, but the sellout of core values is now apparent.


(I don't know how Bloomberg got rich, but power used as coercion is often part of the path, and those that just want to market their ingenious products also have to be wise as serpents, or they get cheated out of their own inventions ... see Romney and corporate raiders that now love China)

84 We got Parkers in my Mom's family tree. Gran would sometimes talk about her cousin (Bonnie) in a wistful way when recounting how they grew up. Gran was also a very religious Southern Baptist and would also say that her cousin ran with a nasty crowd and deserved what she got.

Mom would sometimes chase us kids out when Pap would join the discussion. Family rumor has it that he ran 'shine with that nasty crowd until Gran settled him down.

131 Yeah, Harrelson was the only one in Midway who "worked" in his role. Was very surprised, but he's older, has a resemblance to Nimitz, and captured the admiral's famous calm decisiveness very well. Well, Japanese actor playing Nagumo was also a good fit. He even used language appropriate to that generation, according to a native speaker I watched the movie with. Yammamoto guy was too grim and formal, from what I've read of the real personality [quite playful and informal, esp. for his era and social niche].

166 Israel tells Assad, it doesn't ask, and is barely more deferential to Moscow [just warnings for deconfliction], though they do talk a lot. Lebanon is Tehran's most important and successful project - the Hezbollah de facto take-over, that is. And a real military [terror, not conventional] threat. The doomsday switch for Tehran is the Hezbollah rocket arsenal more than widespread terror attacks, though that's part of it too.

Bond movies seem more cartoonish to me. Focus on the silly gadgetry, and while this one had the gadgets, they were actually used more realistically. If that makes any sense.

Good fight scenes, with good camera work to keep it from getting too jumbled and chaotic.

The entire reason Harrelson made that movie was to put out a mass market homage to his father. He didn't just "channel" him, he did everything he could to glorify him.

Violence porn does not have to be gratuitous. There's a movie I saw on TV 40 years ago, which exemplifies this. I don't remember the name of the movie but the final scene portrays two characters driving down the road, with the passenger in the car dying of brain damage. The penultimate (more-or-less) scene shows him being repeatedly kicked in the head. I saw it first on a channel which showed uncut movies and later on one of the major networks, cut. The cut version was a complete waste. I don't think I watched the whole movie either time --- not my taste but I was living in a dorm and everyone hung out in the lounge (beer fridge) on Saturday nights if nothing better was going on.

1. It's more a James Bond movie than both Timothy Dalton and half the Daniel Craig films.
2. The British gent is held up to be the secret of success in the world, not some gin-swilling Cockney on welfare, or a Cambridge graduate soy boy who opposes Brexit.
3. The gadgets are great and are all relevant to story situations.
4. Bond dream girls who know a hero when they meet one, and act in kind.
5. Acting on moral principle tops everything else in the story.
6. The villain is Samuel L Jackson playing the wet dream billionaire the Blue Bubble Global Elites love...and then he betrays them in the end, because he's not sharing.

365 301 Making Bonnie and Clyde black so the movie can scream "'CAUSE RAYCISS!!" for the umpteenth time is not progressive, new, or interesting in 2019-20. Clyde was a repeat jailbird loser, and Bonnie was a bored teenage housewife who thought being a wanted criminal was great kicks. They deserved what they had coming, and movie audiences would concur, assuming that anyone would go see it anyway.

It's even worse than that. Clyde was apparently set off at least in part by being homosexually raped in jail, but mentioning that nowadays is streng verboten, because all homos are delightful and harmless.
=======
Clyde's statement that he'd rather die than return to prison was not gangsta rapper posing. He had been sent to Southern state prison in the late Twenties, of which type "The Defiant Ones" and "Cool Hand Luke" are the sanitized versions. He did hard labor as part of the hard time, and the guards beat him a lot. They didn't talk about predatory prison homo rape back then, but I've no doubt as young fresh meat he got that too, and then another beating from the guards for whining about it.

I keep seeing people here talk about how much they liked the Midway movie.

But I hear elsewhere people saying, even though the action was spectacular, it was crep, with tripe dialogue and insipid portrayals of real life people.

It's a Roland Emmerich film, so I'm inclined to believe the latter.

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

I haven't seen it myself. And I haven't seen any comments here from anyone who's seen it. But at another page I frequent that has ties to World War 2 naval stuff, a few people said that they'd seen it and enjoyed it. They also mentioned that they were surprised it was as good as it is, given that Emmerich was involved with it.

My personal suspicion is that they rush things somewhat (the story really deserves more than two hours). Adding to that suspicion, I'm aware of one fudge in the film's events, and the fudge in question strikes me as something that was put in place specifically to help keep the movie down to a reasonable running time.

Ma Ferguson! She and her husband, "Pa" Ferguson, were the early 20th Century prototypes for the Clintons. He was Governor about the time of WW1, was so corrupt that he got himself impeached and banned from all public office, so his political machine struck back and got his wive elected, so that Pa could go on running all the rackets he'd been kicked out of office for.

How did they get so much power? Reportedly they were always very generous with paying off the right people, and they paid off *everyone*.

Posted by: Tom Servo at November 29, 2019 01:23 PM (trdmm)


To some extent, but stupidity is a tensor quantity. Different people are stupid in different ways. Many California liberals are not stupid in the way that leads to lottery tickets, but stupid enough to vote for idiotic crap, such as HIGH. SPEED. RAIL. Also stupid enough to believe that the "homelessness" problem can be fixed by supplying the "homeless" with homes. Uh, no. They're druggies and lunatics, their domestic arrangements notwithstanding.

405 @396 My question with the Midway movie is why did they waste screen time for the Pearl Harbor attack and the Marshall Islands strikes?

Everyone should know Pearl started it. And truthfully unless you want to discuss the evolution of American carrier doctrine, the Marshall Islands strikes can be skipped over.

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

No idea on the Marshall Islands.

I think I've heard that the Doolittle Raid was included because the Chinese like it and are familiar with it (since it embarrassed Japan early on, and the Raiders landed in China and escaped with Chinese assistance). And I don't think you can really include the Doolittle Raid without Pearl Harbor.

Sadly most younger movie goers would not understand how DESPERATE things were, without both Pearl and the Marshall islands background being there.

Because kids don't learn any war history anymore, just SJW stuff.

So it set up 'why' they were willing to take such risks, and make such sacrifices.

There's another factor in play, as well. The low level schlubs who are indoctrinated and vote for things like that are certainly stupid; BUT when it comes to the managerial/consultant class, and ESPECIALLY the politicians, they know very well that there is going to be a LOT of government money spread around on these things, and they're going to be in perfect position to grab off big chunks of it. So, for them, it is far from "stupid", they're farming the system for big profit.

Example - look at how MUCH has been spent on the Bullet Train already, and how little has been done. That extra money wasn't simply "Lost" - you can work out the actual cost of what's been built, compare it to how much has been spent, an you will have a good, hard number as to the total dollar cost of the grift in that particular system.

Yes, of course it will be in the billions.

North Fresno there is a HUGE bridge going in for the rail. Covers a couple of miles so far, and construction continues.

Runs right next to Highway 99, where it goes back down to TWO lanes per side (widening project to 3 was supposed to be completed under the stupid stimulus stuff under 'O').

428 @418 The Japanese killed about 250,000 Chinese in reprisal for helping the Raiders to escape.

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

While unfortunate, the Chinese death toll in World War 2 is estimated to have been between 15 - 20 million. Given that the two went to war in July 1937 (ignoring the earlier seizure of Manchuria), that effectively gives us a casualty total of between 2 - 2.5 million people a year, most of them civilians. I don't mean to be callous, but...

Japan was not a good overlord for the parts of China that it conquered. And that was without the Doolittle Raid.

436 My nomination for two of the best twofer movies which are recommended in the same burp Bonnie and Clyde and Highwaymen. If you can't work it on one side of the mirror, take a look at the other one. Black Bonnie and Clyde? Wait for PC remake: JC, Mari, and Joe (the stooge) in black face declaring their eternal god of fried chicken and watermelon. It is coming soon. I suggest you try the fried pork won tons, kosher or halal. It will give your tongue a double plus good hard on.
