7 Good Morning Morons. Today is Sunday, July 18, 2021. On this day in 1290 King Edward I of England issued the Edict of Expulsion, banishing all Jews (numbering about 16,000) from England; this was Tisha B'Av on the Hebrew calendar, a day that commemorates many Jewish calamities.

Rush will never be replaced. I think Bongino can reach out to more than Tucker and Watters, but I haven't seen much of him. From what I have heard, he can make a long haul of it. Tucker is a TV guy and Watters is whatever he is, not really my thing. Radio is different. I first thought Mark Steyn, but what I have heard from Bongino has been pretty good.

30 I enjoy listening to Steyn, he's got a quick wit and he's sharp. Steyn and Bongino have very different styles though. Steyn mocks and laughs at his opponents and Bongino is in their face.

Bongino spoke with some MMA/UFC fighter from Cuba last night and it was refreshing to hear that guy call out the asshats in Hollywood.

First, social media has been coordinating to silence influential/well-trafficked non-progressive and conservative voices for years.

Heck, they already deplatformed an entire social media site, Parler, for allegedly facilitating the 1/6 protests (despite most of the social media organizing being done on facebook), completely deplatformed and actively suppress a former POTUS, and hacked Gab*.

So my question at this point is: How long have government people (elected officials, agency representatives) been directing social media to silence opponents and speech they dislike? It certainly won't be the first time w/Biden's current demand, that's for sure.

*Gab itself was deplatformed years ago, and so was 8Chan.

39 Submissives always gotta be selling submission as a virtue, I guess:

@EWErickson

Im sorry. I repent. I'll stop buying from companies that have otherwise publicly been on my side, but that one time offended me. Instead of respectfully reaching out to suggest they got it wrong, I'll condemn and organize a boycott because that's what the other side would do.


I'm not angry about BRCC nor do I demand others to be, etc.. However, our alleged conservatives in the MSM continue to fail at doing even the most basic things to defend conservative principles and those who express/demonstrate them.

40 What I can't understand is how Errorickson holds on to the noon slot on Atlanta's biggest station.

Gee, has he ever done this was a conservative, such as Michelle Malkin, or does he hop on the "BURN THE WITCH!" bandwagon w/the Left when a non-progressive says or does something that offends them?

This is the same shtick Ben Shapiro sells. He's oh so reasonable and calm when some Lefty says something outrageous, and counsels we not get extreme with deplatforming demands. Not so with people to his right.

What I liked about Rush was he was passionate and articulate about conservatism, but he was always calm, thoughtful, and polite.
All the pseudo Rushes usually sound a bit frantic to me, although looking at Joey Bidung's achievements so far, maybe they have a right to be frantic.

86 I think the steakhouse down the road is using the strategy of raising their prices more and more and more until people stop coming and then they will close. Every time I go in there prices have gone up, but as long as people will pay $30-$40 for an average steak they will keep doing it. He's smart to maintain margin, but once the prices get so high people stop coming that 40 year old business will close.

All sportsball games are in urban blue areas. You see it in the DC area, counting Maryland and Virginia. Sure people want the cash, but there are few areas near a major sports stadium you would like to hang out in. They mostly put these stadiums in areas that need the money or or they hope their fortunes will change. in reality, you won't see any wealthy suburbanites pine for a sports stadium. I admit, that area of DC is better than it used to be, but we are grading on a serious curve here.

Exactly! If you didn;t listen to Rush, and only relied on the MSM/Left's caricature or him (reinforced using brief clips), you would think Rush was always angry. His delivery was forecul, and yes, passionate, and when you got past his tooting his own horn shtick, there was humility and humor. He was having fun, not dancing on the precipice of a ragestroke.

The key is to understand the rainbow yard phylacteries. The question to ask them should be: Who are you trying to impress with this message?

There are defacto top Politiburo types: Soros, those hidden by the Tides Foundation, etc. Throwing money, power and authority at people are vectors of "approval".

The major problems associated with Ancestry.com is that so many homes are broken with multiple marriages and divorces, shacking up, far too many bastards, and a genuine lack of documentation.

So you go the DNA route. Except that none of the DNA places can go back more than a couple generations. After that the differentiation is technically inconclusive. The different DNA businesses have proprietary methods, and only look at a relatively tiny subset of DNA. It often happens that you can get two more very different histories from different companies.

Humans have been fighting over pieces of land, all over the world, for as long as there have been humans on the planet. The land always ends up under the control of the group that was stronger, and/or wanted it more. The winning group keep it, until the next group comes along and decides that they want it, then it's lather, rinse, repeat.

Apologizing for the fact that one's ancestors were stronger or more determined than somebody else's is just stupid and pointless.

I've been deeply engrossed in the One Thousand Genome Project (1KGP) and the other attempts to get a better understanding of how we are all related.

The short answer is: We (people of all ethnicities) are closely related - far more closer than was previously thought.

George Whitefield, back in the 18th century was telling young male colonists to mate with the native women in that "they are fine strong women and the color will be bred out after a couple generations"

Even back then it was common to know that there was a lot of mixing among the ethnicities.

Non sequitor. Stocks are just one form of equities. There is a lot of money out chasing investments. Most good investments are not available to the retail investor, plus the price per share makes it difficult to buy for many, plus the tax regulations highly favoring stock investment.

Ergo, mutual funds, index funds, and a host of vehicles that pool shares for puts, calls, options, etc. You can't walk on down to the HR department and tell them that you want your matching 401k money to be invested in your cousin's bar and grill. You got to play the game that the Party allows you to play.

203 so there is a famous golfer named Rory Mcilroy. I am not calling him out, as this is well known and had been all over the press for years. But something about this stood out to me. It is probably because i follow golf and pretty much no other sports at this juncture.

They asked Mcliroy if he felt more British or Irish, he is from Northern Ireland. This was before the 2016 olympics, so it was likely in 2015. He said he felt more "British" and since he is a citizen of Great Britain, that makes sense.

But man that guy got a crazy load of blowback. In the end he skipped the Olympics and to be honest I don't blame him. But now he he has decided to play for the Republic of Ireland in the next games. He said his reasoning was that he played for Ireland as a kid and always for Ireland.

Me: "So, you've got an infinite source of creation beyond time and space." Him: "Yeah." Me: "So basically, if you can prove it to be conscious, you've proven God." The stare could have peeled paint, and he kind of avoided me after that.

214 I can say my opinion on the subject, and to be honest, this is one I am sure of. Rory decided to play for a country he is not a citizen of, because the people there, and many in this country were raising a shit fit. He is from Northern Ireland, part of the UK, but he will play for a different country, The Republic of Ireland. He got so much blowback he realized one side would lose their minds while the other would let it go. So he joined the side that would lose their minds.

I am personally not bothered by this. And for sure the politics or Norhtern Ireland are way different than the politics of the USA or even Greece. I am not offended by his choice but I do find it odd. It is odd to play for a nation you are not a citizen of. Again I realize it is complicated, and I wish him only the best.

But he said he felt more British, that is a fact. When a bunch of people lost their shit, he changed. In the end, he did it because he wanted to placate the people who lost their shit.

Many people in our society are mentally fragile and weak. These mass (and mask) mandates prey on these types that do not have a stable support group and may even eliminate the minimal support network that has kept them going (eg Schools, churches, family gathering, etc).

242 Was theorizing with a friend the other day. Decided it's not just HR departments making bad decisions and driving these longstanding companies to ruin.

He didn't understand why orgs like the NFL and MLB don't seem to be about the bottom line anymore.

There are many other reasons including government protection, only game in town, etc... but I think another overlooked one is that in many of these companies, the original people are dead and their rich kids have taken over. They are not only more woke, they are out of touch, and most importantly they are *stupider*.

And that's the whole issue. How it's weighted and who gets to decide.

It ends up going back to state-enforced confiscation and redistribution, which has the same fatal flaw it always has. Once you create a redistribution agency, you have a small group that controls all the wealth. Define aristocracy? Oh.

As Chesterton said, there's never been an aristocracy that didn't behave exactly like a small gang. Once it exists, the purpose no longer matters, and it will do as it pleases.

You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed. Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees! Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands. I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws. I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.

Again, before the Book Thread, can't recommend more the book "Barbarians to Bureaucrats" which describes the stages a company goes through from founder to its most dysfunctional state.

The 3rd generation sounds like they have hit the Aristocrat stage, where they truly believe by the force of their very entitled nature that the world always works in their favor. Many of them quickly assume that they are enjoying the success in one domain that they can have equal success in others, and thus transform their companies into ESG hedge funds.

One thing I'm finding a little success with, as in breaking through to some degree, is telling them how things are going to unfold in the future. Pick a topic, any topic. And say, this is what's going to happen (and make it brutally ugly) because of leftist Democrats pushing for "x."

What starts to happen is they start to see it for themselves. The key is to tie the Democrats with their own words and their own legislative votes or presidential actions to "x."

When it starts to happen, your words will hopefully ring in their ears and the gears might start to turn.

Reminds me of that Steve Bing guy, whose kids have been in the news lately (one is actress Liz Hurley's son) because they were cut out of grandpa's trust.

Steve Bing inherited $600 million from his grandfather Leo Bing, a NYC real estate developer. Steve Bing blew through the money (bad investments, bad political contributions, loose women, etc.) and died by suicide at age 55, leaving an estate worth less than $350,000.

His father, Dr. Peter Bing, also inherited millions from Leo, but Peter Bing invested his money and became a billionaire. Now his dead son's two kids, by gold-digging moms, want a share of grandpa Peter Bing's money (since daddy Steve died broke), but the courts said no. Billionaire Peter Bing has the right to say which grandkids he wants to give his money to, and which he doesn't.

"The Spanish Holocaust" by Paul Preston

Greetings:

Mired as we seem to be in our progressive 21st Century, I found this book to have been "captured" by its title. In his effort to make it come true, the author seems determined to document every slice and slight through our current lenses.
I was a couple of hundred pages into the reading when I came across "and twenty-five sheep were taken from a wealthy land owner."as if the "wealthy" was a mitigation of the "taken".

The 500 or so very packed pages of a litanization of what happened was way too much for my current level of interest.

That being said, I found no reason to doubt the information the author provided. And I am going to give the author's "The Spanish Civil War" a shot in my near future.
