Saturday Overnight Open Thread – 9/12/2020 [Buck Throckmorton]

ROBERT CONQUEST’S THIRD LAW

The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.

Covid and Wokeness are two viruses that seem to be an accelerant in the strange desire of powerful entities to destroy themselves. It’s fascinating right now to watch universities, left-wing cities, Hollywood, public schools, sports leagues, newspapers, and other institutions commit suicide. If a manager or employee acts in the best interest of those entities, it might get him fired, but taking actions that alienate customers and produce lost revenue are career enhancing. Good riddance.

THE MYTH OF HARMONIOUS INDIGENOUS CONSERVATIONISM

The left’s push to destroy western civilization incorporates a bizarre myth, that indigenous people lived in some form of universal harmony with nature, unlike the evil Anglos who destroyed the natural order. Of course, all humans have been, well, human from the beginning, engaging in predictable human behavior. This Quillette article dares to say the unspeakable – that indigenous people wreaked havoc on existing ecosystems when they moved in.

When the ancestors of North America’s Indigenous peoples entered the New World some 16,000 years ago via Siberia, they hunted many of the mammals, reptiles, and birds, from the Arctic down to Tierra del Fuego. Mammoths, mastodons, and enormous ground-dwelling sloths, as well as giant bears, giant tortoises, and enormous teratorn birds with 16-foot wingspans—animals that had never had a chance to evolve in the presence of humans—were among the many species that disappeared from the Americas.

Throughout history, however, humans killed animals that were tasty, numerous, and huntable. For kin-groups, staying alive meant making life-and-death cost-benefit calculations about where to send your berry-pickers and hunters. “Sacredness” had nothing to do with it.

Such depictions of the benign and gentle ways of Indigenous peoples are perhaps well-intentioned, an antidote to the racist depictions of so-called “savages” that have been common currency in the West for generations. But they have been cynically leveraged by activists and politicians acting on their own principles and parochial concerns. In many cases, the above-described mythology has become a subset of a larger anti-capitalist discourse that presents Indigenous lands as a secular Eden, and greed as a form of original sin.

CLASSICAL MUSIC YOU LIKE BUT CAN’T NAME

Most of us grew up hearing and liking a lot of classical music that is played as background or mood music, but if you’re like me, you reached adulthood and didn’t know the names of specific pieces you liked, much less their composers. Learning the titles and composers of classical music that I enjoyed but couldn’t identify was a fun little project for me a few years ago. Here’s a couple that you’ll recognize.

Aram Khachaturian’s “Sabre Dance”

George Frideric Handel’s “Water Music: Alla Hornpipe”

*****

FAINTING GOATS

The first time I heard of Fainting Goats, I just knew I was being played. Nope. They’re real. And they’re hilarious. “Myotonic Goats” have a variety of names (Fainting Goats, Wooden Leg Goats, Nervous Goats) but whatever you prefer to call them, their leg muscles tighten when they are scared or excited, causing them to fall over. (I actually did the same thing when the future Mrs. Throckmorton accepted my invitation for a second date.)

*****

MORE POLAND

In last Saturday’s Overnight Thread I posted a piece celebrating the 100th anniversary of Poland saving Europe from communism when they repelled Soviet forces pushing west. Several commenters pointed out that Poland has a habit of saving Europe from invasion of hostile foreigners with hostile ideologies. In 1683, an army of Germans, Austrians and Poles under the command of Polish King John Sobieski ended the Ottoman (Turkish) Empire’s expansion into Europe and saved most of Europe from being subjugated to Islamic rule.

On September 12, 1683, Polish, Austrian and German forces under the command of King John III Sobieski crushed the Ottoman Empire Army, thwarting its expansive ambitions in Europe.

While the Austrian-German soldiers attacked the main Turkish units, the Polish cavalry launched a devastating assault from the rear, shocking the enemy and causing the mass retreat of the Ottoman Turks and their commander. The death toll among the Turks was 10,000, while 5,000 were wounded. Polish forces lost 1,500 men and 2,500 wounded. Although most of the Ottoman army managed to escape, they lost all the guns used in the Vienna siege and all their supply stocks.

The glorious victory brought an end to the Turkish expansion in Europe. As a result of his failure, the Turks’ chief commander, Kara Mustafa, was killed by the sultan.

MLB PLAYER WHO WAS SUSPENDED FOR RACIST GESTURE DURING WORLD SERIES IS FED UP WITH YOU RACIST AMERICANS

Yuli Gurriel of the Houston Astros was suspended for five games after making a racially insensitive gesture (see picture below) toward Japanese pitcher Yu Darvish during the 2017 World Series.

Yuli - 1.JPG

Yuli is a Cuban ballplayer who defected during a baseball tournament in the Dominican Republic in 2016. He then signed a $47 million contract with the Astros and moved to the United States. Yuli would now like for you to know that he has had it with this awful country that made him a mega-millionaire, and he is especially fed up with all the racist fans who stuck by him during his suspension.

On August 28 of this year, Yuli put on a BLM T-shirt while warming up for a game against the Oakland Athletics. At game time he and the other players walked off the field and refused to play - because America is racist. And Yuli will not abide racism.

To accommodate Yuli’s intolerance for racism, maybe it’s time to re-visit his actions in the 2017 World Series and give him a lifetime suspension.

In one of these pictures, Bill Clinton is at a funeral. In the other picture, he’s at home with Hillary.

THROCKMORTON’S FIRST LAW OF LIVE MUSIC: IF THERE’S AN UPRIGHT BASS IN THE BAND, IT’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE GOOD

Saying goodbye for the final time to house or a town that was an integral part of your life is always a poignant experience. Here are a few songs that capture that feeling well.

“Who Will Watch The Home Place” (Laurie Lewis)

“Our Town” (Iris Dement)


“This Old House” (Craig Bickhardt)

Thanks for the reminder. I've voted absentee the last couple of times. I have to contact the city clerk next week and make whatever changes I need to to be able to vote at the polling place.

By the way, in '16, the year of the big election surprise, the polling place I went to on election day was PACKED. I've never seen that many people out to vote.

Posted by: Zettai at September 12, 2020 10:10 PM (Jsp4V)

There's an interesting theory, with *some* evidence (but not proved) that a major meteor/asteroid/comet fragment impacted the Laurentide Ice Sheet somewhere near Hudson Bay about 13,000 years ago, bringing about the Younger Dryas epoch and causing the extinction of the north american megafauna, as well as most of the humans were were already here at the time.

If this is true, then it wasn't hunting from the paleo-indians at all. Some anecdotal evidence; despite constant heavy hunting, the elephants in India and Africa never went extinct. Why in North America and Siberia simultaneously, and why so quickly? The tribes may have been new to North America, but not to Siberia. And most of the megafauna (wooly rhino's, ice age bison which were twice the size of today's bison, giant cave bears, dire wolves) went extinct in both places at the same time.

83 8 The posthumously sainted Anasazi of the southwest were relatively recently documented to have been butchering cannibals. Mention that to any new age leftist and you'll watch them have a ragestroke.

84 Jawa sandcrawler was an artifact of prior settlers that was appropriated and repurposed by the Jawas.

Stormtroopers were actually competent marksmen but were ordered to miss in order to facilitate the escape of Leia & company so as to have them reveal the location of the Rebel base.

I guess there were, like, other movies in the series, but yeah, not interested.

RIP ibguy, and condolences, Wyatt Earp.

121 The simplest way to explain the behavior of any bureaucratic organization is to assume that it is controlled by a cabal of its enemies.

Back in the late eighties, early nineties I hung around with a number of people who worked for state and county agencies. They were frustrated with their jobs because of the type of people who were in supervisory, management positions. Bosses in government agencies are NEVER fired, no matter how useless they are.
The best that the actual workers can hope for is that the idiot boss will be promoted upward and they won't be stuck with him/her anymore. I'm not joking.

215 The peaceful Native American practice of burning the entire fucking prairie to stampede a herd of buffalo over a cliff, then harvesting just a couple of the hundreds of bison killed in the fall is my favorite trick of our Ancient Betters.

Fortunately for the buffalo the Spaniards brought horses to North America, so the Injuns could hunt on horseback rather than slaughtering an entire herd.

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

Can confirm. I've lived in rural WPA my entire life. When I was a kid, there were a lot of woods, but also a lot of strip cuts (which came in handy for shooting, parking, and various and sundry tomfoolery). In the last 20 years, they've virtually disappeared. The only one that is still visible or even detectable is the one the state came and tried to "fix." It's a mess, and has caused a lot of runoff into the local streams that wasn't happening before the "experts" showed up to stick their noses in it.

221 Most of us grew up hearing and liking a lot of classical music that is played as background or mood music, but if you're like me, you reached adulthood and didn;t know the names of specific pieces you liked, much less their composers.

I learned to appreciate classical music from watching Bugs Bunny cartoons.

Listening to classical later on, I would recognize many
tunes but couldn't name the composer, just that I remembered it from a Bugs Bunny cartoon.

Kids today have no appreciation for Bugs Bunny and its cultural influences on a generation or three. The humor, the sarcasm, the musical scoring, the artwork, all of it. What a bunch of maroons.

235 Also, I wanted to get the Horde's thoughts on the below:

I read at another site, a story of a person who got himself in trouble eating out in Italy.

Seems this American tourist likes cheese on his pasta. He ordered a pasta dish in Rome. When it came out, he asked the waiter if he could please have some cheese.

The waiter reacted with utter horror. "I, uh, gotta get the chef!" He then headed into the kitchen.

Next thing you know there's the chef, and he's got steam coming out of his ears. But thankfully he didn't throw a tantrum. Instead he asked the American customer, "have you tasted the pasta yet?"

American: "Uh, no."

Italian chef: "Would you try the pasta before you put anything on it?"

The American, no dummy, realized he was 'in trouble' and tried some pasta. "Mmm, pretty good," he responded.

The chef, satisfied, muttered "grazie" and went back into the kitchen, and the tourist decided, I guess I better drop it.

Then in the comments, there was the debate: who was right, the chef or the customer? Bear in mind this is Europe, not the US.

(The writer of the piece explained that in places like France and Italy, if you want it 'your way,' you go to an 'eatery' or a fast-food place, but NOT to an actual restaurant, unless you want to get thrown out. I've also read that a lot of Euro chefs will throw Americans out who ask for ketchup or any condiment, as well as those who ask for soft drinks with a meal.)

Tell any member of the Crow nation about how nicely the Sioux nations respected territory and they'll call you an asshole.

262 "This Old House".

2 weeks from today my husband and I are leaving the home we have lived in for 40 years. We do not want to, but we know we must. It's too big for us now, our ability to maintain it is waning, and the only thing that keeps our hearts from breaking is that we are trading homes with our son.

So at least I will still get to visit my home. So grateful it is staying in the family and that my daughter in law likes it and that my grandson is gonna have his Daddy's old bedroom.

Nonsense. Next time you got a hot date, I will RENT you the sum of $5,000, all in fresh, aromatic $100 bills.

Next day, you return the $5,000, plus $100 in fees. And your war stories and tales of conquest.

You don't get to SPEND any of the $5k, but merely let it be seen in your wallet at some strategic point in the evening.

I make some quick, nifty interest on the deal, and you get the magic effect of the elixir of cash.

Oh, and my guys, Guido & Gino will be the ones paying a visit the next day, so don't forget to be nice and to offer 'em a generous tip!

292 Many moons ago I took an upper level Lit class on the American Frontier in Literature. Like all upper level classes, the prof made us write a term paper. So I found myself in the university library poring over microfiche files of ancient captivity narratives, and other really for real first hand encounters with really for real Indians.

They were not earth hippies.
Some years later I visited a museum in Belle Fourche South Dakota, and read some more very grizzly stuff.Not earth hippies at all.Check out the novel "Mountain Man" by Vardis Fischer. The movie, Jeremiah Johnson was based on the book.

301 So Portland Antifa is screaming that informal armed militias have set up roadblocks at the entrance to a couple of the Oregon towns that have been evacuated die to the fires, to keep outsiders from coming in and setting fires and looting.

Worse yet, the cops are cooperating with the militias, since there aren't enough cops to fully patrol the evacuated areas.

This is UNFAIR! The cops shouldn't cooperate with the militias, because they don't cooperate with Antifa.

332 So, if you only come away from this ONT knowing that Robert Conquest uttered a trenchant quip at one point, that is a shame.

Robert Conquest was a tremendous scholar of the Soviet Union, writing:

The Great Terror: Stalin's Purges of the 1930s.

The Great Terror, A Reassessment

The Harvest of Sorrow (about the Holodomor/Ukraine Terror Famine)

Kolyma: The Arctic Death Camps

Stalin: Breaker of Nations

Reflections on a Ravaged Century

The Dragons of Expectations.


Asked, upon the opening of the Soviet archives after the fall of the Soviet union in 1991, what he would like to say to his critics, he said: "I told you so, you fucking fools."

He wrote many other books about the Soviet Union and Communism. He was a genius.

Now Buck Rogers is on. He and Wilma and Hawkman land on a planet in search of "Rubidium crystals" (or something like that) to repair the ship's engines. You'd think they'd come up with something original rather than clone Star Trek's "Dilithium crystals".

And now he's run into some hottie with a flower in her hair. On a deserted planet. This will end well, I'm sure.

367 I'm no expert on early Indians in North America, but have read a few primary source documents, and more scholarly works. The truth is, surprise, the tribes were made up of all sorts of people, some good, some ... not so good. Sort of like everybody else.

The modern "left wing" or romanticist view is complete horseshit, that immediately becomes clear. Whites didn't exactly cover themselves in glory. I think no discussion could be complete without mention of the French, Spanish, and British interests versus the Americans. A lot of intrigue and stuff going on, trying to pit tribes against each other, or against the Americans.

Early attempts to "civilize" the Indian were not met with success. The do gooders thought they would turn them into Farmers, and till the land. Warriors didn't think that way, all that drudgery and hard work stuff was for Women.

Sometimes I get the sense the wack jobs in academia come up with a huge load of bullshit to put up a smokescreen about events, historical or otherwise, or try and gloss over certain things. I have a lot of respect for the Indians, tough, proud people.

Not so sure about these institutions destroying themselves, though.

Of course that should be the result. But I doubt we will have more than further erosion in their influence - but that will remain yuuuge, and malevolent. Why? Because the populace they prey upon, or far too large a segment thereof, doesn't know any better. Or are too attached to their hatreds and bigotries, their tribalism.

Lots of ground covered, lots of generalizations, but I don't see the hit being taken by many institutions that deserve near-obliteration - "public health" government outfits and much of academia, for example - suffering much. A very dumbed-down (and amazingly docile and dependent) segment of the populace looks to these dumbed-down/dishonest "experts", they still will in 6 months, unbelievably.

Doesn't take an anthropologist to figure this one out. Women will frequently reject men who attempt to treat them decently, yet will stick with and speak fondly of abusers, cheaters, criminals, and other men that generally treat them like shit. It's one of those really bizarre things that I still have difficulty getting my head around, as well as the unpleasant thought that if I want greater success with women, I need to become more like that.

406 I bought a Heathkit ignition oscilloscope, to troubleshoot an old school engine. I didn't quite have reading the scope trace patterns down, but I knew instantly there was a problem as the firing liine voltage was way too high. This explained why it was arcing to ground all over the engine bay, at least.

What it was, Ford changed the length of the distributor rotor but kept the same part number. The rotor/terminal gap is a lot like the spark plug gap. In later years emissions rules and electronic ignition meant wider gaps, but these don't play well with older point style distributors. Ignition scopes are great.

From about 1965 - vacuum tubes. The CRT was made in Japan, an early import that was allowed. You know, BW televisions. What can it hurt to allow them to sell a few trinkets on the US market?

It also had two (2) pristine, almost unused Mullard 12AX7 tubes, which I immediately swapped into a Dynaco FM3 stereo tuner, and some high mileage 12AX7 tubes into the scope. Really great tool for working on cars.

412 I ran some errands today and got to see some of the fire damage in our town, although the really bad areas are still closed off to traffic. Our entire county is under a Level 1 ("get ready") evacuation order due to the forecast tomorrow; I guess things could flare up again, and most of the fires aren't really contained, they're just not burning like they were before.

Fortunately, we still have a good bug-out location with family about 30 miles up the road. Their location is - fingers crossed - not in jeopardy at this time. But if the last few years have taught us anything, it's that forest fires can explode and double or triple in size in just a few hours with the right conditions.

I spent part of the afternoon updating my handheld 2m / 440cm radios to include the sheriff's dispatch and the local ARES repeater.

Prayers for the Morons who are dealing with these conditions.

It's been months since I went to Mass. Since there was church near me that wasn't actively telling me to stay away because they were afraid. I think the diocese dispensation ends this month and they'll have to start having Mass again. I hope. But I feel a lack of will in the clergy.

I think the forced absence of church for a lot of people, along with the cold distancing and masks are having a terrible effect on people. I say that as an admitted introvert. We're seeing how quick a society built on and by Judeo-Christian ideas can fall into that hell.

431 Comment in which I try not to sound like a conspiratorial Trump apologist:

One thing that has bothered me about Trump is his treatment of Putin. It seems to border on boot licking but at minimum it is respectful. It bothers me because Putin is clearly a problem in Europe (as Trump has acknowledged when he talks about Germany,) and potentially a force multiplier for China. Anyway, Putin is not a friend and at worst meaningless.

Yet Trump talks as if the man is a friend, and this was epitomized by his talk of allowing Russia back into the G7. One theory is that he does this to drive the Left nuts.

Particular interest to me is Russia's relationship with China. I see Russia as an instigator that just wants to stir up shit and especially for whatever side is ahead. But in 2019 particularly a lot of China experts have been saying that Russia is moving closer to China driven by energy exports. OK, but Russia still has a lot to lose and I doubted this analysis but could not know. (These same experts who spent years telling us that China wanted Kim to stop his BS, and I knew that was a total lie but they continued to say it.)

Well,
I just saw an old Victor Davis Hanson video where he mentioned off hand (this was in 2018 I think) that it is a shame that the dems did all this Russia hoax stuff since it alienated Putin and Putin could be a big help to the US in a few areas since it would also be in his interests, but the Dems have made that impossible.

I know VDH advises the administration. I do not know how much, or how much they listen, but I also know that Trump is a VERY strategic thinker who does not care about appearances (ironic, isn't it.) For example, he talks up Fatty Kim as a friend, but anyone with a brain understands that this is a tactic and Trump would squash Fatty Kim in an instant on his merits alone. But Trump is changing the relationship between Kim, China, and the US and China has everything to lose while the US has everything to gain and if it means a few tweets about his "friend," then it costs him nothing. You see, he is playing the long game and does not care if he looks bad. [This is the opposite of what the Left thinks of him, of course]

So what do Kim and Putin have in common? they are both closer to China politically and on it's border and in fact, key allies (actually, one of the few allies China has.)

The Dynaco stereo FM3 was a kit tuner, a lot like Heathkit. It sounds absolutely spooky good after tuning up, freshened up and aligned. It has razor sharp 3D imaging with good speakers, I honestly didn't know FM could sound that good. The mids are very lifelike and realistic. I use a Dynaco stereo 70 to drive them. I mostly run it in the wintertime, it doubles as a space heater. Plus, there isn't much to listen to on FM anymore, it's mostly all trash.

"Jaw, jaw is better than war, war"

I think that Trump is clearer on seeing China as the real adversary that is dangerous. He knows that Kim is a cut out for China, that N. Korea does what is does as part of China's bidding.
I think he has made moves to peal them away from China.
Russia is a problem, and always has been. Cornering them doesn't make it better. I have no clear idea what our policy should be towards them. But from their perspective, our moves in the old Yugoslavia, and Ukraine have not been encouraging. They feel we and NATO have been trying to encroach on their "near abroad", countries close to them.

A lot of gays will acknowledge that a lot of gays have been abused as children. This can not be discussed since it (a) portrays gays as predators, and (b) supports the idea that gayness is a response to abuse and not born-this-way, but in fact a disease.

So this is a third rail subject which is well known but can not be talked about. They can hardly say that the very thing that made many gay men gay is bad. Nor do they want to draw attention to its prevalence.

464 Gentlemen, this is democracy - um, you sort of contradict yourself pretty quickly there. Noting that Trump does some odd public kissy face with obvious adversaries, for strategic reasons (correct), but starting by talking about licking Putin's boots??

In any case, don't agree at all about the boot licking part.

For rhetoric, see the Warsaw speech. One of the best, most important, and easily the most over-looked speech Trump has done on furrin policy. No joy for Vlad there - on the contrary.

In any case, how has Trump "treated" Putin? Only concrete actions matter, and on that score, um, it's inarguable to call Trump's policies viciously anti-Russia.

Energy. (we're sort of done already here) As an energy abundance advocate - a very successful one -Trump has been able to "hurt" Russia more than any single policy I can think of going back through the Cold War. It's everything, to the stunted and distorted Russian economy.

But just for fun, add on the Nordstream sabotage, which may well succeed. Not even an obvious side-effect of rational energy policy - a specific effort to disrupt Russia's European energy marketing plans.

Trump has treated Russia incredibly harshly.

And there's the sanctions and the arms to Ukraine, but meh on all that, who cares. None of it materially affects Russia, and, turns out, who cares if it does? Doesn't matter any more.

Russia only matters now as a vandal on the margins - support for Tehran, its pathetic and pointless sponsorship of Assad the Chinless. Otherwise ..... zzzzzz.

I didn't state my thesis very clearly.

Christianity as a doctrine seems to be the first that called for reverence for life.

Obviously the religious wars between Protestants and Catholics were not in keeping with that doctrine at all. Because human beings were involved, and being sinners, they suck and do all kinds of evil things.

And with Abortion it is the same. The doctrine of the abortionists is demonic, not Christian.

Are there situations and events that are improper to be marketing in?

I worked a wedding tonight and one of the bride's friends was a dude that brought her 4 cases of beer for the bar from the brewery he is part owner of as his wedding present.

I mean, as a dude, I can appreciate a wedding present like 4 cases of beer. Kicks the shit out of a gravy boat.

But I guess what kind of seemed a little out of sorts is he kind of stood at the bar all night marketing his beer to all the guests at the reception, telling them locations where all his beer could be purchased.

So most of the guests are congratulating the bride and groom and white-people dancing to hip-hop songs from the 90s and 2000s and dude is all "Try my IPA".

It was kinda strange. At the end he hit me with a $20 spot and said "Tell people about my beer".

Russia has 1/5th the population of the EU. It has 1/10th the GDP of the EU, yet somehow WE have to protect the EU from Russia? WTF?

Russia has a historic paranoia. They have been invaded time and time again from Europe (not without cause, but their history is rife with it).

The US is now doing Military 'training' operations on the very borders of Russia.

Question, would we not be a bit paranoid if Russians were training just South of Texas?

Russia, IMO, is not really a threat to us, CHINA is.

Yet our MSM and Dems think Russia is da debil, while China is Ding Hao Joe.

We had a chance to bring Russia into the Euro sphere, by bringing them into closer economic ties, but we blew it.

Now, instead of an Allie sitting on CHINA's border, we have troops sitting on Russia's borders.

I think we agree, but while treating Russia harshly he has been kind to Putin. Yes, it is just talk, and maybe I am influenced by the insider reports that he really likes him and often wants to call him, etc.

I had trouble squaring this with his actions or US interests. But I think he is playing a role trying to stroke Putin's ego. I did not think that likely until I saw the VDH video where he personalized the criticism of Putin as being a problem for the US.

488 Christianity as a doctrine seems to be the first that called for reverence for life.

Obviously the religious wars between Protestants and Catholics were not in keeping with that doctrine at all. Because human beings were involved, and being sinners, they suck and do all kinds of evil things.

And with Abortion it is the same. The doctrine of the abortionists is demonic, not Christian.
Posted by: Sharkman at September 12, 2020 11:58 PM (Qio/u)

Hmmm... 'Classic Christianity' did not really have a reverence for life, it had a reverence for saving the soul.

Thus, in their beliefs at the time, as it was important to save souls, it was worth fighting, and dying, over.

The fight then became, who is saving souls? and who, through there unholy beliefs, are going to hell.

490 lot of gays will acknowledge that a lot of gays have been abused as children. This can not be discussed since it (a) portrays gays as predators, and (b) supports the idea that gayness is a response to abuse and not born-this-way, but in fact a disease.

So this is a third rail subject which is well known but can not be talked about. They can hardly say that the very thing that made many gay men gay is bad. Nor do they want to draw attention to its prevalence.

Posted by: Gentlemen, this is democracy manifest at September 12, 2020 11:57 PM (LWu6U)


In a way, this is a 'chicken or the egg?' question. If a child is born gay, it's quite possible adult gay predators pick up on that and have a field day. Maybe it's not that they're gay because they were molested while young but were molested while young because they gave off gay vibes that a predator noticed. (I find sexual predators, both straight and gay, good at picking up on vulnerabilities which children give off or even talk about.)

I had a friend who told me he knew he was gay from when he was young, though he couldn't articulate it at that age. He just knew the mailman 'was hunky', stuff like that. As a pre-teen, he was molested by a priest.

496 Russia's a garbage country with a garbage elite, who are 1,000% responsible for the condition of the country, and who squandered the opportunity for profitable integration - because it didn't interest them in the slightest. Even several of the former republics did the same, when we were slobbering all over them in the 90s. I spent a lot of time in them, contributing to some of the slobbering.

And we were quite fine with Russia (attempting to) smash the worst Chechens, many of whom we ended up facing around the world since 9/11. It was the wholesale medieval slaughter at places like Samashki that we objected to. We've cooperated quite well at trying to counter the Chechen jihadis abroad.

We don't control the climate, we can't control a prevalent respiratory virus, and we don't control the actions or mindsets of foreigners with their own ingrained pathologies (though we can destroy, or intimidate, them to good effect in certain circumstances - or encourage their worst thru perceived weakness). All absolutely equally fallacious and lazy versions of the same failure to think clearly.

505 Hmmm... 'Classic Christianity' did not really have a reverence for life, it had a reverence for saving the soul."

If we want to consider what was "Classic", I would not suggest medieval Christianity, as it was inhabited by those with a violent, medieval mindset. Rather, go to the source - when Jesus happened upon a scene where a woman was about to be stoned to death, did he say "well, that's the law, go ahead"??? no. He didn't say "well the law is over, do what you want" either. He said "the one who is without sin, cast the first stone." I'd say that showed quite a bit of reverence for life, right from the start.

One of the sad facts of history is that men and women have so regularly failed to live up to what they claimed to believe in, to how they were asked to live - but whose fault is that?

50 years ago, we were shooting people in Viet Nam.

Yet now we don't consider them an enemy.

100 years ago, we were flirting with a whole slew of issues. REAL Racism. No equal Rights. Women had just got the vote. Cars were just starting to be sold. There was no air travel. No interstate Highway system. They were still doing CATTLE DRIVES.

Hell, my 91 year old mom first went to school on a WAGON.

Russia had a Czar until 1917. That's 103 years ago.

Hell, look at the rest of the 1920 world. Middle East? Still taking slaves and women hostage. China? had just overthrown the emporer. Japan? Still had one.

.....

I don't find oatmeal raisin cookies to be distasteful.

But if you think you are biting into a chocolate chip cookie and it winds up being oatmeal cookie, it's just kind of a shock. Your brain anticipates chocolate chip and that makes the other good cookie you bite into almost seem repugnant.

I mean not exactly revolting, like when I picked up a beer can one time and took a swig and it turned out to be another party-goers spit can. But still it stuns the palate.

Yes, very much so.

Though shredded coconut can be good, as in Almond Joys or Mounds.

But the kind of coconut inside the assorted chocolate box that you would buy a chick you would just bang as a slump-buster but don'treally have honest intentions towards is low grade.

Though it is probably superior to the mint, cherry or vanilla fluff filling inside cheaper assorted chocolates. Those things are all, in their own way, the Kaboom of chocolates.

560 Insomniac, you know I think you are a great dude and we have both been through the ringer so I am somebody who sympathizes and empathizes with you.
Brother, you got to stop thinking a woman will fill whatever hole inside of you that you needs filling. You know it's a trash fire out there. You have several children, you have a job, you are blessed right now. You have to stop living in the past, falling back into bad habits, that then lead repeating the same negative unhealthy cycle downwards.

My younger brother died when i first left for college. He was 2 years younger than me. He was also my best friend. I took the advice from my dad and several other men, and I bought my first working class puppy, a 4th generation field trial golden retriever. I have had her, then an Australian Cattle Dog for the Golden to raise, then added another field trial Golden for both of them to raise, then I added Australian Sheppard, then after the 3 oldest died, have added another Australian Sheppard and a Border Collie. Hunting, working, and Herding Class dogs are just like raising children, will love you more than any woman in 2020 at our age and above, you get to train them, they love you for it, the love is unconditional, the emotional and mental and psychological and even physical benefits of taking that path and investing your love into a great intelligent puppy to train and raise as your own is priceless, and it will keep you occupied and out of your headspace. Those dogs don't allow you to have bad days or get down because they need you every day to play with them, love them, train with them, teach them, bond with them, ect....

Kindly consider this advice, bro. Get a puppy, a breed that is a hunting, working, or herding class dog.

There were a lot of great nations in history that just vanished completely, with other people moving in and taking over their lands. THere will be many more.
Posted by: Tom Servo at September 13, 2020 12:24 AM (V2Yro)

Their birth rate is just about the same as White Americas. Scary.

Almost ever country EXCEPT the US has had a warlord in charge at one point or another.

One of the things that make us an exception.

My point is that many still take the rhetoric of the past to heart.

Please explain to me, exactly what Russia is doing to attack the US, or even our interests?

Now, are they attacking the EU interests? Hell yes.

Are they defending Syria? Yeah, after we attacked it, and weakened so much ISIS could take over large areas.

Are they selling arms? yup. All over. Just like we are.

I believe, that if we would acknowledge their legitimate security concerns about an expanding EU?

And get OUR troops off their border?

They will never be our friend. But we don't have to antagonize them into being our enemy.

Little Buffalo, Alberta, 1984. Townsite 3 miles from a county dump. Roadside between townsite and dump inundated with trash, and discarded Christmas trees. Carry on past the townsite access, and the ditches are once again nearly trash-free.

Little Buffalo was the townsite of the "Lubicon Lake Indian Band", which was a breakaway faction of another, recognized Indian band with treaties in place. Really just a few families of ne'er-do-wells, with an outside Commie agitator from Chicago, trying to get an illicit piece of the petro-pie.

606 A drive thru the Salt River Pima res here between Scottsdale and Fountain Hills AZ tells you all you need to know about the "indigenous." What a filthy waste. I guess we are to blame for their inability to manage themselves in the 21st century? The politics of the tribal council are hilariously but sadly inept in most tribes - they refuse to educate themselves on basic issues that would actually improve their own lives. Instead, they devolve into ridiculous infighting families and attacking one another to the point nothing gets done. I was rabidly pro-native and worked for years with a Sioux tribe in S.D. trying to help advance their causes - what a complete and absolute waste of time and energy. I predict the reservation system will (and should) be dismantled over the next 50 or so years.

620 Have you considered lowering your standards for an evening or two and tagging a slump buster?

Could be a decent looking woman with miserable personality, a pretty girl that needs a little gym work or a petite waif from the trailer park that comes running when you rattle a hydrocodone bottle.

George III, a former adversary, once said of George Washington that he was the greatest man who ever lived because he willingly gave up so much power by not running for president again after two terms, nor accepting the title of king. That was unheard of in that day and age. Hell, just about any day and age and which made us unique among Nations until the Dems turned commie.

Six-ish weeks or so, and you're going to experience more Top End Experiences in this life, all compressed into one busy weekend, than anything OTHER THAN the birth of your kids.

Same for meeting Top End People. (well, I'll be there, so there's one exclusion, and we've already met.)

And let's not forget. Top End Food and Liquor, too.

This is going to be a weekend from which you will earn interest from the Bank of Life, for years to come.

629 Insom, it's going to take time to undo all of the stuff from your past. But you are in SUCH a better place than you were just 6 months ago - and all of us have seen it.

Give yourself time; Rome wasn't built in a day. And life is what happens while you're busy making plans. Don't forget to enjoy the things along the way.

Keep doing what Tammy advised - find several good things in each day.

Write them down every single day.

That way, when you have a bad day, you will have that record of all of the great things in your life to be thankful for.

Get into that habit, and you will be amazed at how much better you start to feel.

And on those days when coworkers or other people are getting on your last nerve, you can be grateful that you don't have to be any of those miserable poor bastards!

632 settling for a life of bland mediocrity

There are millions of people who would give everything they owned to have suffered through the "bland mediocrity" of having children.

There are people who kill themselves over the grief of not having children.

I know because I witnessed it first hand when I was 10 years old. She was an older cousin of mine, who adored all children and me in particular, and the inability to never have children of her own drove her insane. I found her clutching a baby doll, with foam and vomit all over her face and the floor around her.

There are people living in refrigerator boxes trying to raise their children in slums all over the world who would be thrilled to have a law degree, regular meals, running water, a good paying job, and an actual home to live in.

There are people who sell their 4 year old daughters to pimps, so they can feed the rest of their kids.

Please quit taking everything you have for granted.

Hmmmmmm.

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at September 13, 2020 01:02 AM (jjle3)

I don't understand what you meant by that. I grew up hunting and out in the country around those types of dogs. Growing up we had 4-5 at all times on the farm and out at the hunting land.

The hunting, working, and herding class dogs love to be trained and worked. And it's work for the owner as well. Those dogs are the closest things you can have to best friends and children without having them or in unfortunate cases, losing them. The love raising a puppy is unconditional, but you have to put in the work for the sake of the puppy, yourself, and your relationship.
Those classes of dogs are happiest when they are being trained and worked. If you don't, they will get depressed and misbehave. They will still love you unconditionally though. But like any relationship, each side must put in the work for it to thrive.

It's been all over the TV news for at least the past hour that tonight in Compton (not that many miles from me), two LA County Sheriff's Deputies were ambushed in their van by a 'dark-skinned male' -- that's the entire description the Sheriff's Chief has provided of the suspect. Local politicos have already expressed their shock.

Whn they saw her coming, they vamoosed to the lower pasture, /Finally, she said, "I need Tamarack." Untrained femail. First day, she ran with the collie around the perimeter of the sheepfold (several acres.) The sheep were driven to where they were supposd to go. Same thing the second day.

You mean working together with a woman, complimenting each other, training together, and feeding off of a 24/7/365 non stop self feeding and fueling cycle of love and affection.... why yes it is
Social media, dating apps, and pornography has destroyed the dating world (both men and women).
I give 110% of myself towards a relationship and a person and i expect the same in return.
Sadly Tammy it's not possible. I got ultra fit (5'10 190 at 10% body fat), got a job plus made great investments for passive income, learned and picked up old healthy hobbies and new ones, and made myself a catch. The women I dated and a coupe a had a relationship with always were on social media seeking greener grass. Also, I was tired of being treated as just a fuck tool, it becomes nihilistic at my age. Hell, it became nihilistic by the time I was in college.

It is what it is. Good to see and hear from you. I pray you and Thor are doing well. I pray you are continuing to fight the good fight as well, Tammy like I know you have been. Don't quit.

attitude, I love your stories, and when you're not here, I miss you
much. I hope to hear you play one day; metal of course, but classical
even more.



Don't ever change!

I'm usually always here, I just don't have much to say sometimes. I think I let the classical go to shit though. During the VA MoMe I ventured into a guitar center and picked up a classical guitar. I hadn't touched one in a few years and it was weird. My fingers don't work that way anymore. I mean yeah it would take a month or so to get it back, but then if I go to play electric then that would be weird. The necks are just so different. When I went back to classical after 20 years of not playing it it took forever to open my picking hand back up and break the "pick grip", because you don't use a pick. Then when I went back to electric I started dropping the pick, and I...never...drop...the.. pick. I put the classical down after that. When I played the guitar in guitar center I couldn't get my hand to open back up as easy. It didn't help that the guitar was made wrong and couldn't be played in tune, it was a chinese pos that had the bridge placed wrong. On the open strings it was in tune, make a chord and it was out of tune. I just gave up after that and put it down.

I read a sociology paper on the Marriage gap. Part of it was women going only for the A men, who are in short supply.

Whereas in the 50s is was different, with more even marriages. Or CEOs and secretaries.

Leaving the B and C men alone or in short relationships is very corrosive.

696 This LA sheriff shooting is horrific, and yet no surprise.

Much less important but still relevant, police being harassed in DC, and highway being blocked in NYC. And more trouble in Rochester. And more 1930s Germany scenes of BLM racist stormtroopers yelling at outdoor restaurant customers and compelling them to salute.

And Newsome, incredibly, signed the pedophilia leniency bill.

This might be the biggest wave election in US history. And that still might not matter that much. Or it won't be, which may not make much difference, but be even more damning.

yeah it wasn't exactly great on the open strings either, but was nowhere as bad as the fretted strings.

Yessir. The "80-20" rule, which is defined as the top 80% of the women will go after and seek the top 20% of the men while men on average its more being realistic about who they can get and go after.

Now that "80-20" rule is more like "95-1%". As in 95% of women go after and believe they are entitled to the top 1% of men. Thanks social media, dating apps, and porn. Also, it's why you see the "hot wife rules" becoming more and more normalized and widespread the past 15 years. The hot wife is allowed and encouraged to go out and bang anybody she wants because she can and deserves it. Once a sorted myself out, joined a fitness club and classes, I was approached many times by the hot wives, and I'd turn them down because I'm not a home wrecker, don't want to harm their family life, and refuse to participate in a practice that is unhealthy for society, individuals, and our country.
Our country needs to snap out of the mainstreaming hedonistic culture now.

Well traditionally there is no fingerboard radius on classicals. They are dead flat, and the neck is a lot wider, so those 2 things alone make it very different from electric. Yeah you would have to play it exclusively to be master grade good, but my thing is electric, so there is no point going there. I do get close when I spend the time, but then I have to eventually get back to my barbarian roots. lol

Roy Clark could play just about anything with strings, and if you look up some of his classical guitar performances, it was amazing.

I was reading something about Roy a while back, and supposedly some fawning interviewer asked Jimi Hendrix, "How does it feel to be the greatest guitar player of all time?!" Hendrix replied, "I don't know, ask Roy Clark"

From what I read, Hedrix was also a big fan of Chicago's guitarist, Terry Kath.

TinyURL seems to be down, so no link.

In the late 1960's the band Chicago did some shows with Jimi Hendrix. The legendary guitar play Jimi Hendrix was blown away by Terry Kath's guitar playing. When first hearing Terry Kath play, Jimi Hendrix was quoted as saying that he thought Terry Kath played guitar better than he did. It was later on reported that Jimi Hendrix also called Terry Kath the "Best Guitarist in the Universe."

Fans and critics should positively take note of Jimi Hendrix's comments about Terry Kath. We are talking about a legend in Hendrix who has been regarded by many as the greatest guitar player off all time, pointing to Chicago's Terry Kath as being a better player. Was Jimi Hendrix right or was he just inspired by great musicianship. One close listen to Terry Kath's guitar solo on Chicago's "25 or 6 to 4," confirms that Hendrix was spot on.

Terry Kath's virtuoso guitar playing was never celebrated as it should have been because Terry Kath was a team player. Many of the band members in Chicago stated that Kath was more interested in delivering great albums with his band Chicago. Anyone who has grown up listening to the first five Chicago albums knows that Terry Kath delivered on his goal.

When rock critics write about the great guitarist of the classic rock era, the names Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Duane Allman are always the ones mentioned at the top. Terry Kath rarely gets a mention. That's a shame, because his solos both in the studio and on the stage were among some of the greatest in rock and roll history .

Since I started posting here I have never mentioned my son. This was to protect him. This is no longer needed. This morning I found him dead in his bed. He had an epileptic seizure overnight and it took his life. He had been dealing with seizures while asleep for almost ten years now, and was on medication to control them, but it didn't always work.

I thank God that family and friends have already stepped up and things are being taken care of for now. I will probably be even more scarce around here than I have been for a while.

Please remember to tell your kids that you love them every chance you get. You may not get another.

Like I said, this is a drive by post. I won't be reading replies, although I know Teh Horde well enough to know that won't stop anyone from posting. So I'll just say thank you and I'll see you when I see you.

763 for their sake, i hope the two LEO's are successfully stabilized at St Francis, then transferred ASAP to a first world medical facility like USC Keck or the ilk.

that place is an abattoir, professionally speaking. positively VA like in it's "standards".

764 I'm sorry to hear about ibguy. I remember all his updates regarding his sister. I almost entirely lurk now, but I've been here for I think 17 years (yikes) and you get to feeling like you know people, even lurking. I read the piece over on InsureBlog, it sounds like he'll have a crowd saying the Mourner's Kaddish. May he rest in peace, and hopefully he's with his sister again.

GWP has links to real time local reporting here in SoCal.

that's different than relying on them directly.

and i am personally familiar with the area, and the facility.

i grew up there.

attempted assassination of two LASD deputies at one of the Compton Metro stations...

someone *really* wants a civil war...

likely because they have NO idea how that will likely play out, if they get their wish.

they *really* do NOT want the gloves to come off, but, then again, they are historically illiterate, and only know what they have been indoctrinated with.

the learning curve will be short, sharp, and fatal.

Sadly, I fear you are right on all counts. Looks like from the size of the shooter that it is more than likely a kid. Gang initiation of some sort, I would guess.

777 I'm not convinced they don't want civil war, sure they wish they could turn us into Marxists peacefully if they can.

So per their criteria then if they dont agree with me I am justified to turn them into worm dirt.

783 Once upon a time TV shows had live performances of real music by talented musicians. The shows were looked down upon by the elites.

784 My daughter and I were in Cincinnati this morning and headed west on the I 275 loop around the city was at least a 20 mile deadstop Trump parade. You couldn't see the trucks through the hundreds and hundreds of Trump and American flags, and all of the overpasses were full of people holding signs and flags. I have never seen anything like it. Yeah, I can see him losing to the demented basement dweller.
