13 What is the significance of the black human silhouette stage right? Is that Lot's wife, post-pillar of salt? But "pillar" suggests just that, a cylindrical column, not a human-shaped form. Peculiar.

Look at Washington DC. It's a pit of iniquity that makes Sodom look like a cloister. I hope the Lord has something really nasty in mind for that town. Perhaps a plague of vicious, rapey dogs.

The sun was risen upon the earth when Lot came unto Zoar. Then the LORD caused to rain upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven; and He overthrow those cities, and all the Plain, and all the inhabitants of the cities, and that which grew upon the ground. But his wife looked back from behind him, and she became a pillar of salt. And Abraham got up early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the LORD. And he looked out toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the Plain, and beheld, and, lo, the smoke of the land went up as the smoke of a furnace.

That is addressed by the Parable of the Tares. And generally it was very similar in the OT. The city Jonah was sent to or any of the times the Hebrews screwed up, there was generally a long period of time where they were allowed to do evil.

Cycle tends to be be
1. Lots of evil being done
2. Call to repentance
3. Repentance is either done or not
4. Destruction or not

Lot's lineage consequently become troublemakers iirc. There's a lot of implications not spelled out in the OT. Hence the "questioning" books of Job and Ecclesiastes I think.

The Morning Report — 12/6/22

sugarwarnockwhip.jpg

Good morning, kids. Tuesday and today is election day in Georgia. Oops, check that. It's election "season" whereby the Democrats will wait until all the votes are counted before miraculously finding just enough uncounted ballots, probably about a week to 10 days from now, that will give Ebenezer Baptist Scrooge and wife-beater Warnock the win. Of course, the Georgia GOP and the Walker campaign will not be allowed to do the same thing because that would be banana republic bullshit, right?

Turning off the jaded sarcasm for a moment, although I neglected to check in with Dave in Fla for a last second prognostication, the lead has gone back and forth between the radical apostate minister and Herschel Walker over the last few days, and Walker reportedly has the edge in early voting. Look. Go out and vote. Whatever you think and feel. If Virginians can give Clinton Crime Family capo Terry "the punk" McAuliffe the boot along with a good chunk of the once solidly Democrat Virginia legislature, then miracles do happen. It's a sad state of affairs that I even have to write that, but you all know the score.

After Ace's twin rants yesterday regarding the GOP stabbing us in the face with this JCPA bill that will continue and perhaps actually expand the muzzling of voices contra the official Democrat-Leftist line, and now a bipartisan (yay!) push for some sort of amnesty and pathway first class high speed rail ticket to citizenship for millions of illegal aliens, it's quite obvious that the illusion of a two-party electoral system of government has been exploded, along with whatever vestiges remained of a representational republic.

And here I am telling all of you in Georgia to get out and vote. On a not unrelated note, the Georgia runoff features two black men running for a seat in the United States Senate. Yet we have one entire political party and movement whose central raison d'être is to convince people that this nation was founded in racism, is irredeemably racist and the only way to rectify that situation is to elect them in perpetuity. Aside from the in-your-face negation of that premise by the very nature of today's runoff, not to mention the eight horrible years of Barack Obama, who was elected by an overwhelmingly white majority, the bitter irony is that the sole source of institutional or structural racism that has existed and will ever exist in this country, as it was and sadly as it now is, is the Democrat Party and Leftist movement. Period, full stop. Meh, it's like pissing in the wind. And yet, even mind-numbed, mal-educated stooges like this Charlamagne Tha G0d character seems to get it.

When Fox asked about Biden’s 2024 chances and his feelings about Democrats, Charlamagne stated: “They feel like, ‘Hey, black men, black women, they’re our most loyal voting bloc, and they show up for us no matter what.’”

He added that the black vote is “just something that I don’t think the Democratic Party can take for granted anymore because everybody wants tangibles. Everybody wants something that is gonna benefit their community specifically. People are voting their interests, nothing more, nothing less.”

On the plus side, Mr. Charlamagne seems to understand that something's wrong and that Democrats do take black voters for granted. But what is the problem that he's defining? Is it that the Dems have not delivered on their promises and in fact are the source of their misery? Or is he angry that they have not delivered enough?

Some New York lawmakers are renewing the push for a state law that would lay the groundwork to pay reparations to black residents whose ancestors were enslaved.

Proponents gained steam after a task force in California last week recommended that the Golden State shell out $569 billion in reparations to slaves’ descendents there, or $223,200 apiece, because of lingering housing discrimination practices.

A previously proposed New York measure called for creating a commission to study the impact of slavery and providing reparations but failed to pass the legislature. It is now being revised, backers said.

“We saw what happened in California. We want to pass a bill that starts a conversation about reparations,” said Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages (D-Nassau), chairwoman of the New York Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic and Asian Legislative Caucus, to The Post.

Assemblywoman Taylor Darling (D-Nassau) said it would be a “slap in the face” if Gov. Kathy Hochul and the legislature don’t green-light a reparations study commission. . .

. . . Sen. George Borrello (R-Jamestown) said reparations will hurt race relations.

“It’s nothing but a taxpayer-funded giveaway to buy more votes for Democrats,” Borrello said.

He said his descendants and other New Yorkers of recent generations are not responsible for the sins of slavery and that the United States was one of the first countries to abolish it.

“Slavery was evil. We fought a bloody war to end it,” the senator said, referring to the Civil War. . .

. . . Hochul in March issued an executive order establishing the 400 Years of African American History Commission.

The executive order makes no mention of reparations.

But Hochul said at the time, “For every reminder of the pivotal role New York has played in the fight for civil rights, there is another, more painful reminder of why that fight was necessary in the first place.

“We must recognize and acknowledge shameful chapters in our state’s past, ensure New Yorkers have a better understanding of our history, and fight racism and bigotry in all forms,” she said.

Hypothetical question: Reparations are passed, not just in the Empire State but nationwide. Every black who can prove he is a descendant of a slave (I'm sure there won't be a smidgen of corruption here!) gets his 40 acres and a mule to the tune of $220,000 or whatever it is. 1) do you really think that that will be the final payment and, 2) do you really think that the attitude of colored people of color, and more crucially the anti-American Left will be "Okay, war's over, all friend's again?"

"Divide and conquer" is the most successful political strategy/grift of all time. Of course, what fuels its success is the concomitant action of "Give 'em an inch" which is the stock-in-trade of the GOP. In any case there are so many painful ironies on so many levels with this whole thing. The election of Barack Obama was billed as supposedly the final act of the Civil Rights movement. I'll never forget the "benediction" given by the Reverend Joseph Lowery at Obama's "immaculation" as Rush Limbaugh PBUH referred to it. It was puerile and insulting on every level.

Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around … when yellow will be mellow … when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right; that all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen.

Nearly 14 years later and that still enrages me. The jug-eared fraud (who is probably one of several puppet masters pulling Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants' strings from Kalorama) could not have been elected if the majority of white voters did not cast their ballots for him. America was and even now with a wide open border still is a majority white Christian nation. Yet this fool delivers a homily wherein black people are still forced to ride in the back of the bus and white people do not "embrace what is right?!" He literally stated that after the first black man was sworn in as President of the United States.

You think a measly $200-large is going to change any attitudes? My mother of blessed memory went through actual hell on earth as a "guest" of the Nazis. Up until the last years of her life she refused to apply for any reparations from the German government because as she saw it "It would be as if it would erase what was done to me. Quid pro quo, and I could never bring up the subject again." Full disclosure: a year or so before she died, she did (and quite reluctantly) apply for and receive remuneration owing to her circumstances at that time. Say what you will about whether she did the right or wrong thing, the salient point here is that she, as an actual victim was entitled to receive remuneration from a government whose treasury was and remains bolstered by money that was directly taken from victims, or by profits directly derived from their forced labor.

There is no one in this country that was either a slave until either the Emancipation Proclamation of 1863 or the defeat of the Confederacy in April of 1865 freed them, nor is there anyone in this country that owned slaves until either of those dates.

The notion that descendants of slaves that are four or five generations removed from that period are somehow deserving of money paid by descendants of slave owners is hateful in the extreme. My parents and ancestors came to this country 35 to 80 years after the end of the Civil War, and yet I'm on the hook for this? This is absolute madness, but then again, take a look around at the state of this nation and it's just another day ending in "Y."

Blacks and other minorities have been elected – again only because of the still clear if no longer overwhelming majority of white voters – to every office in the land. Blacks work in every walk of life and indeed a black woman of dubious talents has become one of the world's wealthiest women by amassing a fortune somewhere between $3.5-$4 billion mostly because of the dollars spent on her by white women.

On the other side of the coin, blacks commit a disproportionate amount of crime, fail in schools if they attend at all, have been aborted to near extinction levels and the black nuclear family is essentially non-existent. That fate is the result of nearly 60 years of being "helped" by the American Left in the form of "The Great Society" and "War on Poverty." Social programs that to date have cost the American taxpayer nearly $20 TRILLION dollars – and counting, since the programs instituted never sunset or zero-out but grow with every budget. Or continuing resolution, since we no longer have budgets.

Never has the expression "Mo' money, mo' problems" been more accurate than when seen in this light. And that goes for everything the government supposedly does "for the people." So, okay. If you want reparations, here's my plan:

The Democrat Party, all its members and voters must liquidate their assets to fund reparations, liquidate their party and then for good measure liquidate themselves.

25 Human beings are well adapted to everything being shit. We're not well adapted to everything being shit on purpose.

None of the shittiness of life in Current Year is due to impersonal, inevitable, abstract sociological forces. A small population of mentally ill microhitlers has been destabilizing and breaking shit for decades on the premise that they're making things somehow "better".

Don't embrace your culture, that's wrong. Don't discipline your children, that's wrong. Don't be sexually chaste and treat your body with dignity, that's wrong. Don't be optimistic and seek personal success through sacrifice and patience, refusing to scapegoat others for your failures and set backs, that's wrong.

Every single moral or life lesson has been perverted, and where do people form their morality and worldview? Schools and mass media. Where is this perversion strongest? Schools and mass media.

Not at all saying you're wrong, but something just struck me. Life is simple *now*. Need food? Go buy it. Need a place to live? Rent or buy. Personal safety? Nah, you're probably fine. Life is very simple when it's in a high trust society, everything is more or less fair and just about everyone is prosperous enough not to be pinched.

When that goes away, simple goes out the window and mere survival becomes much, much more complicated. Even those who would take what they want through brutality have to defend themselves from the brutality of others. Live by the sword, die by the sword. "Interesting Times". Pick your cliche, there's plenty of them.

Even back in the 70's there was a strong movement to remove children from government schools and put them in private. Where I grew up it was a criminal act to home educate your children - the government already laid claim on children and demanded that they can only be professionally taught.

While offered as a healing step, I would consider this as a divisive policy, intended to drive a wedge between the black community and the rest of the US population.

While there are many blacks whom I would suspect would decline this money, the bottom line is that there would be an assumption that any black person you meet has benefited tremendously from a program that provided money based solely on the immutable characteristic of their skin color.

And there will be anger, and resentment.

So long as we are talking reparations, I have a long list of damage the black underclass and their race-baiting leaders have inflicted on this country, from crime to urban blight to destruction of the schools. Not to mention the huge transfer of wealth through govt benefits and taxation that has taken place the past 50 years that has been squandered. It would dwarf anything they try to to steal to pay for harm done to ancestors they don't even know the names of.

The most disheartening thing for me was watching treatments for COVID be banned and NC doctors' licenses threatened if they prescribed Ivermectin and knowing without a single doubt that there has never been a true pursuit for a cure for cancer at the corporate level, only the pursuit for ways to make money off of people with cancer. There can be no doubt after watching the COVID response.

The last thirty years of pink ribbons and marches and speeches and everything else have been nice, but what's going to happen in the next decade is people will be asked to get some sort of routine and scheduled mRNA shot to "cure" cancer, cancer rates will remain exactly the same or increase due to the shots, and we'll be told "Your symptoms aren't as bad because you had that injection."

63 Which is awkward. I think this is why they say "an historic." You do pronounce the "h" in "historic," but if you say "a historic," I think you run into the problem of hiatus, where, to make the sounds clearly, you have to insert a micro-pause between "a" and "historic," which is awkward.
++++
Depending on context, "an historic ..." also disambiguates because one could conceivably be discussing an ahistoric incident (e.g., one that is wrong - as in how "amoral" negates "moral."

But legacy and origins aside, region is also a factor. Most people I know who speak the Queen's English use "an historic" - but in that accent, the "h" is almost entirely swallowed and it comes out like "an 'istoric" and so the rule applies when going by ear. It is more hit-or-miss on this side of the pond in my experience.

I wonder how state-level "reparations" schemes will influence the inevitable federal "reparations" scheme. I reckon the Dems will hold that in reserve until black support drops to 80%-85% consistently. Once the margins have bled off, pass the "reparations" bill to stop the bleeding and pull some of them back.

This will have all sorts of nasty consequences (money aside - money is irrelevant these days), including that it will lead to Nuremberg Laws, American Style. But I do wonder how the state-level efforts will tie into it. Do people who got state reparations not get federal reparations? Do they get to double-dip? Are states reimbursed by the Feds down the line?

95 When the reparations schemes hit, state or federal, it will be racial, not based on historical status. To make it based on historical status, the recipient would have to prove his lineage, which would be extremely difficult given the state of record-keeping in the prior era and number of out-of-wedlock births in the current era. Similarly, those funding the scheme would have to do the same, which poses all sorts of problems as well.

They'll hit the "easy" button and make the payments race-based with no historical component and the collections to fund it will be normal taxes levied on all. The middle-class or richer black person will fund his own reparations, as will non-slaveowner-descended whites, Asians, etc.

It will be appalling when the time comes.

110 But I do wonder how the state-level efforts will tie into it. Do people who got state reparations not get federal reparations? Do they get to double-dip? Are states reimbursed by the Feds down the line?

And how will they determine eligibility, judging from almost all television advertising, every household is biracial and the children are mongrels.

Is this the return of Jim Crow? Should I invest in DNA testing labs to determine percentage of Authentic Slave Blood? Is this a based on melanin content (I'm going to love where India Indians get in line)? There was an old joke about Fathers Day in the ghetto as being the definition of chaos - so lineage will be a laugh riot.

But based on how we already see conservative black men being treated among those who propose Reparations, it will be based totally on ideology and voting pattern.

This is the culmination of worldwide events that have been decades in the making and that Nancy Pelosi openly tried to codify into American law back in the early 90s. It failed and has been rejected at every level, so they have to achieve it through subterfuge and cheating. And they have. It's in place and we're moving forward according to the timeline regardless of what people want or vote for.

They have set up PA and AZ so that they hopefully don't have to cheat much more than they already do in order to continue us on our path to the year 2030, but if they need to they'll have places like Georgia and NC ready to go.

For everyone, that perception is wrong. The gangsters deliver only on their own twisted interests and nobody else's, ever.

Perhaps people like this Charlemagne dolt are starting to understand that. More people on the Right do, for now, but I think we've hit the ceiling, and it's not nearly enough of us to make a difference.

We'd been watching NCIS on Sundance (wife bought a firestick) lately. They run a marathon on Monday's. Yesterday's marathon was strangely interrupted with an episode of Law and Order. They decided they needed to inject an episode they prefaced with "no actual people or incidents" represented, but it was about 'torturing terrorists' and how GWB was directly ordering the torture and murder of 'enemy combatants' because, well, you needed to be reminded of his 'war crimes.'

After that episode, they continued on the regularly scheduled NCIS episodes.

Looking at RCP, Walker was favored in Nov.

Now Warlock is favored.

Which, if we believe the polling means that 5-10% of the voters wanted Walker when they thought he would be the 52nd or so R senator, but don't want him to be the 50th.

The article doesn't seem to support the claim that this made a material impact on Walker's overall numbers. And given how this actually works they likely on balance increased his fundraising totals.

And also says the Trump, NC GOP, Vance, and Budd, quickly switched to the same 50:50 arrangement that Cruz and Tuberville had with Walker.

Trump was asked not to campaign in Georgia in runoff in his usual rally style.

Campaigns raising funds in other states to support candidates isn't really unusual. It only takes money from each other if they somehow have donor overlap.

Cruz raising money off the Walker runoff and giving some to Walker is presumably additional money from Texas donors going to Georgia. Walker wasn't going to get that much from Texas otherwise.

They aren't even pretending, they're just buying favors. It was John Bolton that finished me off in terms of having even a scintilla of faith or confidence in the federal government. He was on the take and working against our interests - nothing surprising there - but that wasn't what did it. It was how much money he was making.

One of his slimy deals was made public back toward the beginning of the Trump administration and it was for like $10k. If you're going to be a traitorous sell-out, at least get some money for it. When I found out that *I* - if I had the connections, which I don't - could afford John Bolton, it was really eye-opening. I figured these guys were making mid six-figure or higher deals to sell me down the river. But ten grand? Seriously?

The guy could be bought for the political equivalent of a ham sandwich. And there are thousands if not millions like him.

359 Saint of the Day (Part 1)

St. Nicholas of Myra (270 – 343 A.D.) was the only child of a wealthy Greek Christian couple living in what is today the country of Turkey. He was a pious child, and upon the death of his parents Nicholas was raised by an uncle who was a bishop. St. Nicholas grew in holiness, was ordained to the priesthood, and eventually consecrated a bishop. He was famous for generosity to the poor, protection of the wronged, zeal against heresy, and performance of miracles. Many famous legends are told of him. When a poverty-stricken man was to be forced to sell his daughters into slavery, St. Nicholas secretly tossed bags of coins into their home to serve as the girls' dowry, thus enabling them to marry and be provided for. The money was said to have landed in their stockings drying by the fireplace, which is the origin of gifts in children's stockings and shoes at Christmastime.

361 Saint of the Day (Part 2)
At the Council of Nicea, Nicholas prevailed against the heretic bishop Arius; he was also instrumental in defending the doctrine of Jesus' divinity and formulating the Nicene Creed. His relics are still preserved in the Basilica of St. Nicholas in Italy. On his feast day they emit a miraculous myrrh, which is distributed around the world. Many countries have the custom of making him the secret giver of gifts to children on his feast day. In the United States, for example, he is celebrated as "Santa Claus," who distributes gifts to children on Christmas Eve. St. Nicholas of Myra is the patron saint of many causes, professions, cities, and countries; but he is most notably the patron of children, sailors, prisoners, and maidens seeking to marry. His feast day is December 6th.

They're also generally multi-cycle operations. The raising of funds isn't purely benevolent, even though the one that is raising the funds also has to pay out the costs, it allows them to refine/expand donor lists and keep and train staff.

404 M-I-L needed a new shoulder, so we took her to that one doctor. He says, I just do the backs now, my new associate handles the shoulders (you can do that kind of division of labor with a 'sports medicine' practice). So we get an appointment with New Guy, and he's got an East African name, enough so that I had to look up how you'd go about pronouncing it. I was leery; was this nice old lady even going to be able to understand him when he talked?

Turns out he's from Kalamazoo. Ace dude, conservative snappy dresser, no tats or bone through nose, more American than most of our family. Did a first rate job (the damn Minority put that shoulder joint in backwards!). Must all be yacht racers here, because "yawl" wouldn't like him.

405 The Morning Report has been part of my daily reading for many years now. But the news is so uniformly bad, I may have to stop, just to keep from gunning out of the house, screaming.

Regarding reparations: I'm of the opinion that if we get stuck paying out (and we will, because spineless GOP), then we should consider that blacks have finally been paid off. No more quotas, no more affirmative action, etc. Each individual black will then rise or fall on his/her individual merits.

OTOH, we're talking about a considerable chunk of change here, if each state does its own reparations calculations. Since the Democrats control D.C., likely the feds will join in eventually. Totalled up, that's enough money to relocate all blacks to a place where they won't have to contend with Whitey anymore. So send them all back to their ancestral homeland -- Africa -- and let them create Wakanda.

Tech News

  • Moon's haunted: After a successful trip to and around the Moon, NASA's Orion spacecraft* has had some issues with ghost breakers. (WCCFTech)

    The computerised circuit breakers are supposed to trip on command or when something goes horribly wrong, but instead half of them tripped for no reason at all. And cut off half the maneuvering thrusters in the process, something that could be inconvenient if it happened at the wrong moment.

    The next Orion flight is expected in, uh, two years.

    * Not old bang-bang, sadly. See Niven & Pournelle's Footfall if you're not familiar.


  • The making of Dune II. (Read Only Memory)

    I always wondered by the sequel to the Dune computer game was in a completely different genre - the first an adventure game, the second a real-time strategy title.

    This article explains that: It wasn't a sequel, not even in the strictly temporal sense. Once the producers obtained the rights to make Dune computer games, they hired two studios to produce two entirely different games at the same time.

    Dune I was unremarkable and is largely forgotten. Dune II on the other hand pulled together all the elements of a real-time strategy game for the first time, and is the direct parent of the entire Command & Conquer series.


  • You can't let just anybody look at the sky! (Scientific American)

    The US government plans to require public release of all date from publicly-funded science. The article argues that this is bad for science, because other scientists can look at the data and, well:
    I have a friend in Minsk
    Who has a friend in Pinsk
    Whose friend in Omsk
    Has friend in Tomsk
    With friend in Akmolinsk
    His friend in Alexandrovsk
    Has friend in Petropavlovsk
    Whose friend somehow is solving now
    The problem in Dnepropetrovsk

    And when his work is done
    Haha! Begins the fun
    From Dnepropetrovsk to Petropavlovsk
    By way of Iliysk and over Novorossiysk
    To Alexandrovsk to Akmolinsk
    To Tomsk to Omsk
    To Pinsk to Minsk
    To me the news will run
    Yes, to me the news will run!

    And then I write by morning, night
    And afternoon, and pretty soon
    My name in Dnepropetrovsk is cursed
    When he finds out I published first!
    I didn't say it was a very good argument.


  • How "goblin mode" became Oxford's word of the year. (NPR)

    First, that's not a word.

    Second, people voted for it. It was an online poll. And it mopped the floor with the competition, because the competition was "metaverse" (which is at least a word) and "#IStandWith".

    Third, I wonder if that's in the Shorter Oxford English Dictionary. I shall take a look, because that just arrived too. (I'd love to get the full 20-volume set, but it's pretty expensive.)


  • Twitter turns its back on open-source development. (ZDNet)

    Is it true?

    No. It's just more wishcasting by another left-wing pro-censorship journalist. (Which is pretty much all of them.)

    Interesting tidbit from the article though: Twitter was developing its own custom JVM, which is a really dumb idea. The company isn't nearly big enough - let along profitable enough - to support work like that.


  • Setting up container backups on the new server. Much cleaner than the old rsync-and-hope system.

    I plan to migrate the old MyISAM tables to either Aria or InnoDB, which will make them crash safe. Not certain that the code will work correctly with InnoDB, because it's properly transactional, but Aria is just a better MyISAM.

4 Morning, all! Up early thanks to the craziness of kittens.

From the ONT: I love dreaming about a nice, large, quality-built kitchen.

My dream is of a large kitchen where I don't have to move items A, B, and C in order to get to D, and then move B so I can reach E. So sick I am of this tiny galley-style kitchen, of living in 2 rooms plus kitchen and bath.

5 Wolfus - the kitchen at my new house has lots of drawers. Lots and lots. Five sets of them, many of them double width.

It's amazing. So much easier to get to stuff.

6 I'm also up early because I feel . . . "off." Not sick, not in pain, but not quite myself. Have felt like this since dinner last night. That was nothing odd: a small portion of chicken and sausage gumbo, and a small beef & bean burrito. Maybe it was the vanilla wafers afterward. Weird.

I also may not have made the coffee strong enough. All signs point to Bad Day at Black Rock.

34 I used to make extra beer money putting things together for neighbors. It was always nice when they bought actual IKEA stuff, it was good quality. But most times they bought cheap Chinese knockoffs from Amazon. Cheap materials, crappy hardware and lousy manufacturing tolerances that showed in the fit and finish. The instructions were always bad, but you got used to it. Easy money for me from people who had no patience or mechanical ability.

38 Ikea packs things really well, by the way. Amazon tends to just toss expensive stuff into a lightweight box with maybe a bit of packing paper to keep it company, and then deals with the complaints later.

I imagine that is the benefit of living in such a progressive ecologically focused country like Australia. You probably have a lot of use of plastics banned. Usually Amazon packaging here isn't packing paper but is plastic airbags.

85 G'morning, all.

This is the time of year when many of us are mailing packages to family and friends who are serving on active duty either overseas, or deployed at sea.

So it would only seem right that the USPS and our military postal systems would step up to the plate, and do stupid shit at this most wonderful time of the year.

And yes, I know personally of some of the events taking place in this article.

"crime in Pleasant Hill is a health issue. His team tries to come in, detect the problem, and interrupt it. When we interrupt it, we change the guns, the behaviors, and values in the community or in that area".

Health issue huh? Better hand out some more masks and test kits.

Also nice: I can reach B'ham in 6 hours and Huntsville in another 1 or 2 -- a solid day's drive but not too exhausting.

Marine Corps commandant says COVID vaccine mandates are hurting recruiting

The comments came at the Reagan National Defense Forum this weekend.

Speaking at the Reagan National Defense Forum in Simi Valley, California on Saturday, Gen. David Berger said, in regards to the vaccine mandate, that “Where it is having an impact for sure is on recruiting, where in parts of the country there’s still myths and misbeliefs about the backstory behind it,” according to Military.com.

Quite the "Con Job" if you ask me. And if you didn't, the story is here anyway.

A young man's fake Tinder persona of an attractive blonde woman was so convincing he managed to persuade an active police officer to hand over his patrol car and body armour vest.

Tyler Rawiri Tetera, then 23 and long fascinated with police, used the car and vest in an elaborate sex-money scam, swindling tens of thousands of dollars in total from three victims. They bought him iPhones, a car, and in at least one case, had sex with him.

Court documents tell the story of an easily bored young man skilled at using superficial charm and deceit to create chaos.

Suppression orders on Tetera's identity and file were lifted last week, shedding light on his spree of lies and deception from January 2020 until his arrest in March the following year.

Definitely has a future in politics.

For years Uncle Sam has been interfering with the free market system in the automobile industry. Does congress really need to save the AM radio? Don't they have more pressing matters?

AM radio in cars isn’t going anywhere while Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey is around.

In a letter he sent to more than 20 car manufacturers, Markey outlined why he thinks AM radio is important and asked that they continue to have AM radios in future models, including electric vehicles known as EVs.

“Broadcast AM radio remains a crucial, cost-free source of news, sports, and weather, and, more importantly, is an essential medium for public safety officials — including the president — to communicate with the public during emergencies,” he wrote in the letter.

Markey cited statistics from the Pew Research Center News Platform Fact Sheet from September 2022 which said 47% of Americans receive their news from the radio.

Interesting what is coming out of the Twitter archives. Not surprising though.

Internal Twitter emails uncovered appear to indicate that another top Democratic candidate’s campaign colluded with staffers on the platform to block accounts that contained so-called election misinformation.

According to reports, the internal Twitter emails reveal that Arizona Democratic Gov.-elect and current Secretary of State Katie Hobbs allegedly teamed up with former Twitter staffers and executives to flag certain users and accounts. The bombshell revelation comes on the heels of Twitter boss Elon Musk, via journalist Matt Taibbi last week, revealed internal company communications showing the platform worked with the Democratic Party to censor conservatives.

Brussels: A European Union plan to throw a virtual party in the “metaverse” to engage young people in its policies flopped spectacularly after only six people turned up.

The EU Commission’s foreign aid department splashed out £332,000 ($500,000) to create the metaverse - an online square where people could log in to a virtual concert to meet others and learn about the bloc.

Dumb and avoidable = Genius Award Winner.

A 23-year-old Florida sheriff’s deputy was fatally shot by his fellow deputy roommate over the weekend, in what the sheriff described as a “clearly dumb and avoidable accident.”

Brevard County Sheriff’s Office deputy Austin Walsh was killed Saturday morning in Palm Bay by his roommate Andrew Lawson, Sheriff Wayne Ivey said in a Sunday news conference.

The two were taking a break from playing online games with friends and were standing and talking together when Lawson, who believed he had unloaded his gun, “jokingly” pointed the weapon at Walsh and pulled the trigger, Ivey said, citing the probe by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and the Palm Bay Police Department.

I normally don't comment on the Genius Award as the award says it all. However in this instance, I feel quite bad for the family of the slain officer.

And if someone is a cop, they should know better than to play games with a firearm. No excuses. Period. This is the kind of person we don't need in uniform.

***


On a happier note, here is another Genius Award Winner.

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (WTAJ)– A man was charged with biting a security officer’s finger while he was publicly intoxicated, according to State College police.

It was right before 6 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 26 when an officer noticed Timothy Rossetti, 21, of Carbondale “staggering” along the 800 block of University Drive, according to the charges filed.

Rossetti tried to get into the driver’s side of a pickup truck, but it was locked so he proceeded to walk towards the McQuaide Blakso Attorneys at Law Building and was found inside by police.

Snow storm. Guardian angels. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

DIAMOND LAKE, Ore. — A 31-year-old truck driver is sharing his story of a stranger who helped him get out of a very dangerous situation while traveling on Highway 230 during a snowstorm.

Paul Baker lives in Boise, Idaho, and drives a 530-foot flatbed truck throughout the Pacific Northwest. He said the actions of the man saved his life and allowed him to go home to his family.

“We were there for about three to four hours, around 10 p.m. We see the hero Jared, he came over coming up the hill, he had a pretty beefed up duly Duramax truck and he had a lot of lights on it, he was hauling two snowmobiles he had just come from snowmobiling in the boonies by himself,” Baker said.

The stranger who helped Baker and another man who was stuck is named Jared Broadwater.

36 How dare Orban do this! How dare he!

Hungary is perhaps the most extreme example of the division of politics into the City Party and the Country Party, which you find in many countries these days (including the US).

In the election, Orban lost big in Budapest, and won big everywhere else in Hungary.

Only the City Party is legitimate, of course.

Hungary, oddly enough, doesn't view the war in Ukraine as the ultimate struggle of Good and Evil.

One thing that has pissed the Hungarians off is that the Ukraine has announced that Ukrainian will henceforth be the sole language of instruction in Ukrainian schools.

This was done to punish Russian-speakers, of course, but there is a small area of Ukraine that is Hungarian-speaking, and now all the schools in that area will have to conduct classes in Ukrainian.

121 Don't know if it was mentioned earlier today, but FEMA denied emergency funds to Florida after hurricane damage, so DeSantis announced the state would provide up to $60 million in aid from its own funds.

Apart from being the sort of mean-spirited behavior I would expect from Biden, I'm actually okay with this. Anything that strengthens people's loyalty to the state government as opposed to DC is a plus at this point.

122 It's shameful, but the City of Houston has about The Worst selection of News/Talk radio stations and featured shows.

Only AM 740 reaches Galveston. That was where Rush was, his replacements are, and *gag* are followed by Hannity.

There are/were two weak-sister stations, wimpy signals. You can find 'em if you're up in Houston, anyway. Sadly, the talent on the AM airwaves ain't what it used to be. They'd be better served by airing the podcasts from the right sidebar!

One thing that does not miniaturize well is the antenna. Tradtionally, AM radios have used either external "long wire" antennas (the best), or internal loop or loopstick antennas.

He has spent the past 5 months at the Alaska Military Youth Academy, which is on base and run by the folks who also run the National Guard, and funded by State of AK. It has been nothing but good for him.

He will be remarkably resistant to the woke garbage, just naturally. He was raised by me and DH, after all. But his inherent psychopathy will be a problem if someone doesn't keep it firmly in check. Not a lot of options out there.

I bought a pound of small cut sunflower seeds this afternoon, then spread about half a cup on the edge of the road behind the apartment building. I'm hoping some inquisitive bird wanders by sooner or later, then tells all its relatives and friends that there is really yummy food right there where Hersh and the Wicked Witch can watch them feed. At the house, Hersh spent half his waking hours hiding under a car, watching the bird feeders while the Wicked Witch bounced up and down on the window sill inside making all sorts of funny cat noises.

193 One thing that does not miniaturize well is the antenna. Tradtionally, AM radios have used either external "long wire" antennas (the best), or internal loop or loopstick antennas. The smallest loopsticks were about the size of a cigarette, which is a substantial thing to pack into a cellphone case.

My realtor lobbied the seller with the argument, "Wouldn't you rather sell to a nice family? The wife is pregnant right now."

Turned out that was a winning argument, or the unknowns regarding the zoning rules - but I am still going with the former!

Absolutely fuckin' not. No way. No how.

My 14 year old has expressed an interest in aviation. I told him that in any event he'd need to work on his grades, and in any event I'd support that extremely expensive idea. But I urged him as strongly as possible to take the civil aviation route, even though it doesn't provide so many opportunities as military aviation.

Mostly because it's a fool's errand on the way to a better career, but also because there is a higher risk of death involved, and who wants to take a bullet for the Big Guy's 10%?

Speaking as a 30yrs guy who is where he is because of the Corps. Went in as a 17yr punk who knew everything and left 30yrs later as a wise (at least that's what I'm told) E9 (Master Gunnery Sergeant) who often took all that he experienced and learned along the way to make well guided recommendations (enlisted really don't make decisions even though we have loads of sway) to leadership and the bosses... Maybe..

I think it would be great for the young to enlist, go through boot camp, and gain a trade, whatever that be but... and it's a big but. They have to be a,art enough to sort out all the fluff and BS all at the same time that they will need to keep their mouths shut.. all while doing everything in their power to be qualified for the next rank.

That was the justification for decriminalizing hard drugs in Oregon - that addicts all desperately want to kick the habit, and the only thing stopping them from quitting is the lack of treatment facilities. Open the treatment facilities up, and the addicts will flock to them of their own accord.

Turns out that's not true - give them a tent (supplied for free by the county), free food (supplied via EBT and numerous organizations), and enough money to buy fent or meth (via theft or some other mechanism), and they are perfectly content. Almost no one the social workers come in contact with are interested in quitting.

My son just finished an internship at Textron and they completely subsidized his pilot training. He achieved his first two certifications during his first summer.

He was aerospace engineering, but was pleasantly surprised to run into several of his old high school buddies. The company hired interns from almost every single area of study, including non-college trajectory interns.

Your son might be able to get a start at an aerospace company in your area and have them subsidize or pay 100% for much of his civilian aviation training. Meanwhile he could earn a paycheck in some job that he enjoys.

Okay, I have a related story. I mentioned the other evening that I am working on a humorous short story, 'The Rehab Chronicles', based on my post-brain bleed stay in a rehab hospital.

While there, exactly a year ago, my good 'friend' Wayman (USN Ret.) called me:
Me [groggily]: "Hullo..."
Wayman: "Mike, it's me, Wayman"
Me: "Oh, hi"
Wayman: "Just wanted to let you know, Navy just beat Army"
Me: "#*%&#*, Wayman, I'm lying here with staples the length of my skull, tubes draining in and out of me, and you're calling to crow about Navy beating Army?!"
Wayman: "Yup"

It may not sound like it, but it was really was funny as hell.

Sadly, only a few months later he was in the same facility post-surgery. I stopped in to see him on a Saturday, and he passed away Sunday night. Clot, they say.

351 Does congress really need to save the AM radio?
---
Yes. Given current trends, though, they won't. The Uniparty would like AM radio to die. It's cheaper to broadcast on AM, and covers up to half the country with one station.

Make it more expensive to broadcast, and the little people lose that as an option.

Why did NPR choose FM? More stations are needed to cover the same broadcast area. Which requires more staff. Which requires a much bigger budget for the grift.

They didn't do it for the pristine audio quality for the bumper music. They did it for the grift.

Sunrises will occur later faster than sunset until the solstice.

For those in higher latitudes, the earliest sunset will happen a few days later. Dec. 8/9 or so around NYC latitude. For AOP, it will be later than, 12th to 14th, and for Alaska, around Dec. 15th.

Actually, the Kamikaze did OK on landings, as they had enough launch/recovery cycles in their training so as to make it necessary to learn. They not only had to learn their (very most) basic Airmanship, but they did have to get good enough to have flown an attack profile, understand the geometry of the final dive, and take the planes performance and other characteristics into account in the doing. Kamikazie did hellacious damage. I'm just glad the suicide attack torpedoes were never quite as effective. Those things were a "one and done" for any ship they'd hit.

It was the Chinese who were willing to kill thousands for a few yards of Korean territory. Admiral Turner Joy was at the peace meetings, his book is an eye opener.

The American delegation on arrival was loaded into US Jeeps where the blood was still fresh on the seats. When the Americans were first seated, they discovered their chairs were shorter than their Chinese Communist hosts so had to look up. And when the Communists would get insistent that a piece of Korean mountain belonged to them, the Americans would call up that sector to warn them of an impending attack.

432 Kaitans. Yep. Modified Long Lance torpedoes.

I'd read an autobiography of a Kaitan pilot, who survied the war. Closest he came to "launch" was airlocking into the cockpit, and awaiting the order. Which, didn't come, and they airlocked him back into the mother-sub.

That was about 8th or 9th grade for me, and I've forgotten the title. But it was a Bantam book publication, of this I'm sure. Those Kaitan pilots drilled HARD on taking the relative bearing of their target, with a one-second look through the primitive periscope. They'd plot that on an attack board, and then set their heading for the attack run. From then on, they were flying blind, until impact. Or, miss.

444 Evening.

Tonight, on a whim, I rewatched Sam Raimi's first Spider-Man movie. So good. So good.

Ya know what's so good? One of the the things that's so good? Remember that this movie came out very shortly after 9/11. That, whether intentionally or not, it's a tribute to the men that gave all on that day. So many little moments feature New York City cops or firefighters acting honorably. Committed to their duty. And you can't help but remember that sacrifice. It's such a silly movie, but damn it if it doesn't remind me of those feelings.

I could go on about this movie and what it gets right vis a vis the title character. But right now I think it's worth noting that it's a wonderful yet inadvertent love letter to the best of that city and the best of our country.

446 The US took the kamikaze idea in a weird direction. During wwii pigeons were put in the nose cones of missiles. Pigeons were trained to peck the cross hairs in order to keep on target. After they pecked a treat automatically released. They were perfect in hits.

448 Picture this, as a pilot.

You're at 1,500 ft. 2 miles from the target ship. Your speed is 300 mph, and the ship is doing 32 knots (37 mph).

It's at hard right rudder, and you're going to be going for a hard right turn in your attack and decent, trying to make the "solution" for the gunners as difficult as you can make it.

If your "Mk1 Mod0" eyeball estimate is off by a quarter-second, you miss by about ten to twenty feet over the deck. But you still DAID, as your terminal dive is going to put you into the ship or into the water. You are COMMITTED, as soon as you push the throttle up and the stick forward. Sayanora!

I had electric for years. The stove was new when I moved into my first house, so I never changed it. Well that and I didn't feel like running a gas line, which I could have done quick if the basement didn;t have a finished ceiling. When it finally went I did one of those glass top stoves. Yeah, nice to clean, but you needed flat bottom pots, and if you turned the temperature down it took forever, and I ended up sliding the pot off the burner a bit. The new had an electric wall oven and a gas cook top, so when I did the new kitchen I shit canned the wall oven and cooktop and went with a dual fuel stove since I had both the electric line and the gas line. I had to do minor relocation, but that was easy. I should have done it in the old house.

The house I bought in Las Cruces has gas and electricity in the kitchen and laundry. I also knew when I moved in the appliances where shot including the glass top electric stove. What I didn't expect is all of the would blow up in the first few weeks of the Covid lockdowns. By some miracle Lowes had everything at fair price and was able to deliver them within a couple weeks. A month later getting product would have been spicy. A really great feature I got in the gas stove and microwave is both have convection ovens. And for once I finally bought a dishwasher that doesn't sound like a jet engine reving up.

In addition to the kitchen appliances blowing up my washing machine a few months later developed a leak in the tank - I was like, really? Being 11 years old and a tank costing about 80% of new machine it was, all right, sign me up for a washer and dryer. Sometimes you just can't win. Buying appliances is circus - the trick is figure out the models that are identical to the top of line machines minus all the BS feature normal people will never use. After much fussing around the I found that Whirlpool makes some excellent kitchen appliances and LG is pretty good at making washers and dryers.

My old dishwasher sounded like it was chewing the dishes. Cleaned them nice though, but loud. You don't hear the new one run at all. I started appliance shopping in the beginning of the summer because the cabinets were going to take 14 weeks to build and deliver.

Exactly. I went with kitchen gear that is a couple notches down from the most expensive stuff partly because I could get ASAP and partly because the build quality was so significantly better than their primary homeowner models. Sometimes, if you can, it really makes sense to not totally cheap out (which is the story of my life). There is something rather satisfying about having knobs and controls that don't feel like they are about to fall off when you touch them and nothing having to wear gun range head gear to run the dishwasher.

Posted by: Lost in Space at December 06, 2022 03:05 AM (c1mVn)

564 Berserker. If I was gonna build a new kitchen, I'd put an Auto-Chlor or Hobart commercial Corner Dishwasher in at the suitable site. You feed those in with dishes or glasses on plastic racks. About a 7 minute run time. Loud? WHO CARES?

The dishes come out SO HOT that they dry on the rack in a minutes time. Sterile, too. The three bottle combo of Soap, Rinse and Sanitizer that AutoChlor uses? Only a surgical autoclave does more.

Commercial stuff is different. Not always suitable for consumerworld. But when it is? It's the BEST. (always opt for the commercial overhead sink sprayer faucet. Always!)

I actually looked at those and they are a thing. But I couldn't justify them. I don't have a household of barbarians living with me any more. A 4.5 cu ft washer with a stainless tank and a 7 cu ft dryer were everything I need. And the software controls - dang LG - they are way sophisticated. The one thing you must keep though is the Styrofoam washer tank insert in case you move. If you move and don't have that the tank bangs around and you end up punching a hole in it. Ask me how I knows this.

Well the kitchen here really is the centerpiece in the house. Its the whole physical center of the house. People would come over and they like to sit around the island and hang out because its a large area. I tried to steer away from a commercial or industrial look to keep more of a comfy feel to the place and keep the vibe people liked in the first place. I couldn't help going slightly into epic territory because I used to do it for a job, so its expected of me to push the limits, especially in my own house. I hadn't done a kitchen in over 20 years, so even I was caught a little off guard by how complex they had become. I told my brother what I wanted, told him to add a little bling to the design and he did. I didn't realize all the custom assembly of components that goes on these days, so it was a grind.

599 Morning, all! Up early thanks to the craziness of kittens.

592 I love dreaming about a nice, large, quality-built kitchen.

My dream is of a large kitchen where I don't have to move items A, B, and C in order to get to D, and then move B so I can reach E. So sick I am of this tiny galley-style kitchen, of living in 2 rooms plus kitchen and bath.

Yawn.

Yawn.

Cutest little army crawl.

Dave French says "That must be my car!!!" Not that he has that make or model. He thinks God's telling him to take that car.

Trick play.

These geese are going to steal $600 million in bearer bonds.

Cat flows like water. Here's another cat using the same fence-threading technique.

Matched set.

Piiiooonggg!

You think it was cold where you are today?

It had a really good opening scene, if you excuse the Glenn Frye.

It was a more innocent time. We didn't know any better.

The pic on the right is from the sequel. I know that because of the rule that the sequel must be "Biggerer and Betterer." In the first one, he just wore a ratty "Property of Mumford HS Athletic Department" t-shirt. In the second one, he wore that varsity jacket. Forget what they're called. I think that was also Mumford-branded.

Sylvester Stallone was attached to Beverly Hills Cop for a while. He dropped out. I think because of "creative differences." I think he had in mind a more "serious" movie. Unless I'm just making this up -- and who knows, I might just be making it up, my brain is almost 29 -- I think he took the ideas he had for Beverly Hills Cop, which had been rejected, and wrote them into a script for a little movie you might have heard of called "I Don't Shop Here."

Nothing in that scene makes sense. Literally nothing.

In Japan "I Don't Shop Here" was released as Sullen Man Who Eats Pizza With Scissors Has Sexiful Car That Flies Now!!!

Wait, was this supposed to be more serious than Beverly Hills Cop?

Remember being back in university and having conversations with members of the oh-so-serious Beatnik/Maoist/Socialist crowd? The ones that never cracked a smile, always were focused on The Struggle, always quick to kill the mood or jump on random statements to prove a point? The ones that made the Campus Crusade For Christ look like warm, friendly, easy-going people? Well, the descendants of those killjoys got jobs in Hollywood, while their friends and relations took over social media to provide the echo chamber. So yes, comedy died about 12 years ago.

110 Mr. J. Snappington Turtle sure does look like he's blinkered by an advanced case of cataracts.

Makes ya wonder how he's catching his dinner, given that he's an Apex sight-hunting predator. And don't let that slow-roll he was doing towards the camera fool you.

A snapping turtle is rattlesnake quick when it strikes. You really didn't need those fingers anyway, right? /s

If the fish or tadpole swims by close enough to be seen, even if only in shadow, the Snapping Turtle has an amazingly accurate strike. I've seen it in the wildlife videos. Oh, and that murky water tends to still have a few feet of visibility, once you're under the actual surface.

Those "GoPro" type cameras, plunged into the water on a pole, really have done a great job of going where the diver might avoid, otherwise.

I expect she has more people who genuinely love her than Soros does, because when when you're that wealthy you can never be sure if people are sucking up to you to get something or because they actually like you.

216 Some find people die too soon. Your dear wife did. OregonMuse and others did. However, Soros and Schaub (sp?) are not the entirety of old people. My organist is 94. I expect she has more people who genuinely love her than Soros does, because when when you're that wealthy you can never be sure if people are sucking up to you to get something or because they actually like you. Aside from the fact rhat Soros is a sociopath or malignant narcissist with a Gid complex.

there is a reason they were granted immunity and there is a reason the actual medical research data seems to be a more closely guarded secret than the nuclear codes....

The covid wars pissed me off, and frankly my rage at the idiocies at Tepid and Instry on the matter have me persona non grata there.

My family was told forcefully "get the shot or:"

In my wife and son's case it would have been adverse discharges and in my case I would have lost my contract.

I made the concious decision to take the risk first and allow them to see if I paid a price. That my wife has cancer in the wake of the shots pisses me off, but in fairness as Popping Ed says statistically it is the most likely cancer for her "Birthing person" type and it rather survivable. I am glad I am past the half way point of my life and am slowly coming around to looking forward to dying I would not want to live on an Earth without my wife.

I don't know your wife, sven, but you are a good and intelligent person and I think if you don't want to live without her she must be a very fine person too. I wouldn't want to live without my husband either because aside from Jesus FenSpouse is my best friend.

>>Boy howdy, did they get it.

MRNA technology is not new, it was first being researched and brought to market as a cancer fighting technology, and while not technically a gene therapy, it jacks with gene expression, which it is why it was put on the shelf.

The idea that pharma just pulled the MRNA vaccine out of their a**es for the Plandemic is quite funny.

forgive me, I am in a dark mood on "just asking questions" on COVID I did not appreicate the loose change retards and I am of the opinion that COVID 19 has become GloboHomo's perpetual "I WIN!" button for the rest of my life.

My no bullshit read on it going back to mid 2019 was that a hollowed out gain of fuction research vector got loose in the wild and was killing people, it turns out that it was probably funded by the US government and the response to it has been the greatest assault on freedom and medical professionalism in modern history.

I do not think anything we say here will change any of that, the only thing I am wondering these days is whether it was done on purpose or not.

Take solace in the fact that the first generation of COVID 19 deaths in Asia was horrible and had THAT strain been the unchanging baseline a lot of the idiocy would have been justified.

See, this is the stuff that annoys the hell out of me. My lovely wife also has a constellation of auto-immune issues and is terribly compromised. Her guys at Cleveland Clinic were vehemently opposed to her receiving the jab. I realize, of course, that every person's ailments are unique and that treatments for any ill must be tailored to that specific person but, when folks with seemingly related ailments are told "Yes!

It's very hard that people have loved ones who are very sick, but they love their family members and their family members love them back. That love is a great thing. I find the Covid discussions less depressing than the political ones where "The Republic is over" is the main theme.

Quick Hits

Semi-permanent CNN and MSNBC guest host Michael Avenatti has been sentenced to fourteen years for, if I understand this right, being "almost too presidential."


Twitter told the FEC that none of its decision makers communicated with the Biden campaign about the Hunter Biden story.

We now know they lied.

I'm sure the Justice Department is preparing charging documents at this very moment.

Glenn Greenwald has a good thread responding to the media's attempt to downplay the Twitter Files revelation.

He makes a point that rebuts something I said on Friday. On Friday, I got pissed at Taibbi for saying there was "no government involvement" in the Hunter Biden laptop story. Greenwald notes that many leftwingers pick up on this quote, and says that they all misinterpreted it, as did I (by implication):

He says Taibbi is saying that while the claimed justification for censoring the story was foreign hacks and document dumps, there was "no government involvement" that he could detect in the leak of the story. And so, he was referring to the leak of the story, not to "no government involvement" in the decision to censor the story.

I don't know if that's correct, but it seems important enough to point out.

Commenter Seldom says this about Breitbart's claims about the Legacy Media Protection Act, which I adopted as my own:

67 I actually read the bill in question. I don't think it does what Brietbart says it does. It allows Digital Publishers to negotiate as a bloc with Content Providers who provide access the publishers materials. The target for this bill isn't Twitter, it's Google. This is a shot at Google Scholar, News, and Books, all of which bypass paywalls. Twitter does not. (I don't know about Facebook.)

To the best of my knowledge, Twitter doesn't (as a corporate entity) directly redistribute Publisher content. Publishers and private individuals do that when they post. Musk has talked about some sort of paywall bypass, and this would allow publishers to negotiate that as a bloc with Twitter if he went forward with that.

This would also explain why Jim Jordan is against it, as he is (allegedly) a wholly owned Google subsidiary.
Posted by: Seldom

Well, I guess we'll have to see. The Breitbart article is not about what the law says it will do, but what it actually will do and what it does not prevent this new Authorized Monopoly from doing by explicitly forbidding it.

But let me point out this much: We, actual conservatives, have been screaming that we are being abused by social media monopolies for ten years. Establishment corporatist pricks like McConnell have told us to piss up a rope for ten fucking years, telling us that "private corporations can do whatever they want," and the government must not ever interfere.

Now gigantic leftwing media corporations which do everything they can to destroy the Republican Party and the American Way of Life say that they are being abused by the social media monopolies' use of their copyrighted material, and now, does McConnell say, "private corporations can do whatever they please, go piss up a rope"?

No. Now he says, "Oh, you gigantic corporations are being abused? Let me pass a law that creates a special exemption for you so that you can band together as a monopoly without triggering anti-trust laws so that you can fight the monopoly predations of the social media monopolies."

So apparently it is possible to get some relief from government if you're being abused by social media monopolies from Bitch McConnell: You just have to be gigantic legacy media corporations valued at trillions of dollars in aggregate, and you have to oppose the Republican Party with every fiber of your being.

If you're like me, or you, or Breitbart, or Libs of TikTok, or Babylon Bee, or Stephen Crowder: Well all of us can piss up a rope, because private corporations can do whatever they want.

Do you understand, now, Plebes? Sometimes the Free Market "needs a little help" and in those cases, Mitch McConnell will ride to the rescue and help the Free Market with a New Law that will help some of his Behemoth Corporate Friends against some of his other Behemoth Corporate Friends.

But other times, as when people who don't have money are being abused by all of his Behemoth Corporate Friends colluding together, then the Free Market is working absolutely perfectly and just as the God of Economics intended, and in that case, you can go piss up a rope.

So, the lesson is, if you want something from the GOP Establishment: You should either become rich, become a corporation, or just become a Democrat, because they're the only people the GOPe is interested in doing favors for. It's easiest to just become a Democrat.

So that's what I'm thinking I'm going to do. Why fight for a party that literally hates me?

CNN: "Some want you to think" that Twitter's censorship of the Hunter Biden story "was Big Tech censorship."


Yoel Roth says he decided to ban Trump from Twitter due to the "trauma" that Twitter employees -- "front-line censorship officers," in other words -- experienced covering January 6.

The media NPCs had one coordinated response to Matt Taibbi on Friday night: He was "doing PR" for "the world's richest man." A huge number of NPCs repeated this software update.

Greenwald points out that the bulk of the NPCs repeating the "Taibbi is just doing PR for the world's richest man" meme... are themselves just doing PR for the CIA and FBI and DOJ.

==========
Back in the good old days of the Church hearings and all of that, the Left was upset at the CIA. That was because the CIA was not full of Leftists, and therefore took actions against the targets the Leftists would have liked. Likewise the CIA more or less followed its charter and stayed out of domestic politics despite all of the movie plots that said otherwise. But then the Leftists succeeded in taking over the teaching positions of the Ivy League (an employment pool for the Letter Agencies) and Leftists filled the ranks of the CIA. Then the conspiracy movies became true, but that was okay now, because the CIA was now doing what the Left wanted.

In the last 2 weeks, Trump pledged solidarity with the Jan 6 rioters, dined with 2 Holocaust-denying fans of Hitler, and called for terminating the Constitution. Yet he remains the front-runner and clear favorite for the GOP nomination president in 2024.

I could not stand the idea of the twat who stole from the White House when she carpetbagged over to NY to take over Daniel Patrick Moynihan's Senate seat. Texas did NOT have a Demoncratic primary, and so, to participate in the caucus I had to switch from fence sitting independent to the full-on libtarded donkey party. Now I am a proud member of The Party of slavery, Jim Crow, and crypto.

You, and other like you keep propagandizing silly media tropes. Russia got what it wanted - the wealthiest, coal rich parts of Ukraine. A buffer zone into Uke territory that it will never get back. The largest Nukkelar power plant in Europe. A bridge to Crimea. The "Kiev parade" nonsense is oft repeated. This is not Hollywood, this is real conflict.
======
I'm not propagandizing anything about Ukraine. I leave that to CNN and Putin's flunkies, who are better at it than me. All I have to say that Ukraine wins by not losing, and by not losing that means they are still an independent nation after about a year of a much larger enemy attacking on three fronts. If the Russians want to call what Putin's floundering horde has accomplished winning, let them be spared defeat!

This is no biggie. Newspapers aren't being killed by allowing their stuff to be reprinted for free by the web. They are being killed by the complete lack of ad revenue which is being swallowed up by the social media giants. Apple actually struck a little blow against some of its tech cousins by capturing but not transferring their users data from their phone usage. This especially whacked FB, but also Google.

Apple also just saved itself from being too much of an apparent censor asshole with Twitter's new direction probably by Musk saying he would just create his own app store, and take all that sweet money away Apple. Not to mention he probably has all the goods on Cook's wokeism and government censorship love that his user base would not like to know about. It was the quickest fold in history. The meeting was Musk telling Cook you are not that fucking smart so just back off and lets all get back to making money off our users. Otherwise I don't have to spend all that much money to make your corporate life a living hell.

Race2Dinner "Hostesses:" The House of White Womanhood Rests Upon a Foundation of Doing Things Well

I know, the headline is baffling. It cannot be helped. We're in ClownWorld. Things are a bit strange here.

Stick with me, I'll get there.

You have certainly heard of "Race2Dinner" -- the racialist grifter operation in which two women extract $5,000 from upper-class white women for the privilege (ah, that word!) of hosting them for dinner (which the white women pay for) and the get told all the ways in which they're racist.

The stupid upper class white women think that the two racist grifters are coming to tell them that other white people are racist, but you're okay.

But -- perhaps admirably -- these grifters don't roll that way. They don't pander. For $5000, you don't get told you paid your Racial Indulgence and can go to Mixed Race Heaven.

For $5000, you get told you're among the worst racists there are.

Were White Fragility to be adapted as reality TV, the result might look something like this: A collection of affluent white women, equipped with varying degrees of vanity and self-delusion, gather at a well-appointed dinner table. There, they face down a pair of unsparing judges prepared to see right through them. Who's racist? Time to find out. White wine flows; white women admit shameful secrets. They get squirmy; they get angry; they turn on each other. If one of them starts to cry, she has to leave. She will find tissues in the designated crying room.

The Bravo version of Robin DiAngelo, in other words, might look a bit like Race2Dinner. Begun in 2019 by Regina Jackson and Saira Rao, Race2Dinner gathers groups of eight white women at the home of a white host, where Jackson and Rao facilitate a discussion about race over dinner. Early in the evening, for example, they will often ask the white women whether they would prefer to trade places with Jackson (who is Black) or Rao (who is Indian American). The women will almost uniformly choose Rao. "So they know," Rao said. "They know the entire ecosystem." The idea is to bring such submerged racial judgments to light, however uncomfortable this might make the white women. Jackson and Rao ask guests to describe racist things they've recently done and press them on any evasions. Often the examples that emerge involve silence: failing to speak up or intervene. Sometimes they consist of thoughts or feelings: assuming that the Black teens pulled over in a white neighborhood must have been doing something wrong. Sometimes the guests struggle to think of what to say. "Not knowing is classic white behavior," Rao told me. "You don't know, because it would ruin your entire image of being the perfect, nice white lady. I'm sure you're intimately familiar with this, being a white woman."

Race2Dinner participants sign up for something that promises to be painful, unsightly, and yet transformative, like a chemical peel for the soul. "Interested in hosting a dinner?" asks the Race2Dinner website in red text superimposed on a shattered china plate. "Click here to smash your white fragility." Guests used to be asked to read White Fragility, but no more. For one thing, Rao said, "we definitely don't want to put another dollar in Robin DiAngelo's pocket." For another, among prospective customers, pretty much everyone has already read it.

David Strom catches up with the gals from Race2Dinner in Time Magazine.

They have a new complaint about White Womanhood. (They really call it that.)

White women are too good at things -- too "perfect" -- and this causes oppression to people of color.

Now I don't mean to make this too racist, but the Race2Dinner ladies already started it -- but I'm pretty sure that Chinese women and Indian women and other Asian women have a strong drive towards being "too good" as well.

Are they saying that Chinese and Indian woman aren't Women of Color Women of Color?

And if they are saying that -- and they are -- aren't they the ones who are racist?

In 2019, we decided to host anti-racism events in white women's dining rooms for one specific reason: To turn the age-old adage, "it's rude to talk about politics at the dinner table" on its head.

This is what we've learned--if you don't talk about racism, you can't dismantle it. But it isn't just over the dinner table that this "niceness" rules.

In the aftermath of George Floyd's murder in 2020, you were eager, frenzied even, to do this work. A mere two years later, not only is that excitement for anti-racism work gone, the pendulum has swung in the other direction, into a verifiable whitelash against anti-racism work.

If white womanhood is a house, your need to be perfect is the foundation.

It is this need for perfection that makes it impossible to engage in antiracism work.

Being perfect is the key to your happiness, to your success, to your very existence.

Perfect hair. Perfect clothes. Perfect grades. Perfect nails. Perfect weddings. Perfect bodies. Perfect adoring and supportive wife and mother. Perfect employee and colleague.

White skin. The foundational principle of perfection in a white supremacist society like ours is rooted in whiteness. Without it, your A's will never be straight enough, your MVP trophies not shiny enough, your flowery dresses a bit wilted. Of course, white skin alone doesn't render you perfect, but without it, you have no chance. White skin is a necessary (yet still insufficient) ingredient of perfection. The con, of course, is there is no actual recipe for perfection, as there is no such thing as perfection.

Wow, for "anti-racists" they sure do spit out a lot of hate against a race!

They're attempting to be as derogatory and insulting as possible. What they could have said, if they weren't just anti-white racists, is that white people tend to value non-confrontationality as cultural virtue, and that very non-confrontationality makes it difficult to talk to them about race, which is inherently a confrontational subject.

See? It was very, very easy to discuss that in a non-insulting, non-degrading way.

But their intent was to racially insult. Their intent was to racially degrade.

Because they're "anti-racists."

Of course, when it comes to all other races, we're supposed to "celebrate" their cultural preferences as superior to all other cultural preferences. And it is racist to ever criticize any culture's cultural preferences... except for the one.

The article I first quoted, which mentioned Race2Dinner being perfect fodder for a reality tv series, is from 2021. Race2Dinner hasn't been made into a reality TV series just yet.

But they have made it into a documentary movie: Deconstructing Karen.

Available on Apple TV. Because of course it is!!!

I'm late to this party -- this came out a couple of months ago -- but it's New to Me (TM).

I just heard about it on Chris Gore's review podcast. His co-host was raving about it, giving it a 9 out of 10. Not because he approves of the racial struggle session, but because the documentary shows you what Critical Race Theorists really believe, and how cult indoctrination sessions really work. Forewarned is forearmed.

I don't know if I could sit through this, but I have watched a few clips, which I'll tee up for you.

Here are "the wokest moments," allegedly.

If you can't take the clip, skip to 3:25, when a White Woman dares to point out that while the black woman is talking about "we" having experienced slavery, she certainly did not experience slavery.

She is commanded, in response: "Silence."

That'll be $5000, Typical White Woman.

Replacement video. The video I linked here had been taken down. The best I can do is this reaction to that video. But it includes a guy reacting to the original video. If you just want to see the Race2Dinner stuff, you have to skip around.

The very fact that these stupid white women are even present for this racial struggle session tells me they kind of deserve everything they get.

These two grotesque hateful whores explain that all white women are "Karens" and "Beckys," and that white women just need to find out what kind of "Karen" or "Becky" they are.

Note that both "Karen" and "Becky" are racially-charged disparagement for white women, the same way casually dismissing a black woman as a "Shanequa" would be.

But it's okay, because they're here to learn you some racism about yourself.

Sairo Rao, who is Indian not black, and if she wants to live in a country which is a utopia free of racism she should cart her fat flabby ass right the fuck back to racist/caste-ridden India, says that "white women's violence expresses itself as silence."

You know, of all the violence in the world, I think silence is the kind of "violence" I would prefer to have to suffer.

Black Conservative Perspective asks what's actually more violent: The passive-aggressive assholery of Karens we see in viral videos, or the extraordinarily high levels of actual violence we see from black men? Which is more destructive? Which ruins -- and ends -- more lives?

Which demand the more urgent "realtalk" dinner conversations about?

The Karen stuff, obviously. Duh. White woman's silence is the ultimate violence, says the bitch who has obviously never faced actual violence in her sheltered, coddled, safe whitebread life.

One more clip: Crowder and Co. watch a clip and goof on it. It gets super-cringe when a white woman attempts to claim she's basically black because she dated a "super-dark Hispanic man."

Rao is an upper-caste Indian name, of course:

Rao is spelt as Ravu which is derived from Raju meaning king. Rao as a surname of Kammas appeared from very ancient days.

It would be fun to bring a couple of Dalits (untouchables) to one of the dinners, and watch Rao freak out at being contaminated by them.

First of all, everything you just read is absolutely true. And it's emblematic of affluent, or even trailer park, white women. I should know. I married one.

The first thing you need to know, about 90% of white women that are NOT living paycheck to paycheck ... is that they are most loyal to other women. Not the guy they sleep with and fathered their kids and pays at least half the bills. Nay. White women that are not hungry, right at this moment, are most concerned about defending other women.

Once you know that, you've got a small insight into the mind of the Modern White Woman.

You may be onto something, but, I'm reminded of a Youngblood's tune:
Look at them luscious little bottles, sittin' up on the shelf
Red green and yellow, Lord, they are somethin' else, hmmm
They mesmerize me, the way they sparkle and shine
Drinkin' that wine wine, wine
Keep your head stoned all the time
One snort of Ruby Port really rings the bell
Then a glass of Muscatel sets my head up well

Yea but that I think is just a ‘want what you don’t have” impulse that cuts across all races. Black women don’t have straight hair and what they do have is often difficult to style. So many of them want long, straight luscious hair … like many Asian girls have. Meanwhile, a lot of Asian girls who have exactly what black girls want are busy spending their money adding waves and curls and color to their hair. Skin lightener is used in the black community. Meanwhile white ppl want to get tanned. You get the drift …

Black women have always been loud - and tap dancing on the edge of getting a pimp hand to the face. Which is why so many black dudes that live with them have a quick pimp hand.

White women are a bit behind the curve. They like to bitch. They don't get the pimp hand. It really is an example of white privilege.

You don't see Mexican girls getting loud in the Wal-Mart.

190 So white supremacists could have rehabilitated their image simply by inviting black families to pay them for the privilege of being racist to them? Of course not, but it's sad how that only works with white women.

Posted by: Chairman LMAO at December 05, 2022 06:37 PM (F5ekr)

191 Yea but that I think is just a ‘want what you don’t have” impulse that cuts across all races. Black women don’t have straight hair and what they do have is often difficult to style. So many of them want long, straight luscious hair … like many Asian girls have. Meanwhile, a lot of Asian girls who have exactly what black girls want are busy spending their money adding waves and curls and color to their hair. Skin lightener is used in the black community. Meanwhile white ppl want to get tanned. You get the drift …

Leaving town, checking out the Christmas lights, we found ourselves at a stop sign. We were kinda surrounded by cop cars, fire trucks and there, on the street, was Santa Claus.... In a sleigh. I have no idea what was going on. I just made my turn and continued the tour of Christmas lights.

199 Being perfect is the key to your happiness, to your success, to your very existence.

Perfect hair. Perfect clothes. Perfect grades. Perfect nails. Perfect weddings. Perfect bodies. Perfect adoring and supportive wife and mother. Perfect employee and colleague.


I don't know. This looks like "Shame-Bragging" or something.

"Oh, yes. Yes, you're right. I am too perfect. I always try to be the best, the prettiest, the sexiest around. I love and support my husband and children the best that I can. Damn! Oh, damn my perfect self to hell!!!

And my smooth white skin and perky shell pink nipples and radiant blue eyes just make it worse. To hell with my blemish free white skin. Damn, my integument!!!!"

Weird, how white supremacy/racism is supposedly based on white competence and effort and hard work.
How's about upping your weak, lame-ass game instead of complaining?

A well-dressed and coiffed pretty Black or Asian or Hispanic, etc is just as pretty as a well-dressed and coiffed White woman.

This is just odd and pitiful all the way around.

201 Will AOC and Rashida Tlaib play along? I insist; they meet the Definition of "White": A person having origins in the any of the original peoples of Europe, the Middle East, or North Afria. It includes people who indicate their race as "White" or report entries such as Irish, German, Italian, Lebanese, Arab, Moroccan, or Caucasian. AOC in particular seems to meet the concept of "perfect white women," and one of Tlaib brother's mug shot years ago listed him as Caucasian so she's in.

Note: The US Census Bureau collects race date in accordance with guidelines provided by the US Office of Management & Budget (OBM). The racial categories included in the census questionaire generally reflect a SOCIAL definition of race recognized in THIS country and NOT an attempt to define race biologically, anthropologically, or genetically. OMB require that race data be collected for a minimum of five groups: White, Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, Asian, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pactific Inslander. OMB permits the Census Bureau to also use a sixth category - Some Other Race. (Emphasis added.)

F the 'color' business.
