Take feminist propaganda with a pinch of salt. Mexican women would not cross the border to work as illegal immigrant maids in the US if they are getting paid maternity leave at home. I suspect most people in pakistan are paid a pittance if they get paid at all.

In most cases it is only govt jobs and a few high flying executive positions. The same ones the feminists demand a glass ceiling needs adressing. That is the real economy supporting public servants getting all the raises in line with inflation while the private sector wages stagnates, and also the private sector supporting paid maternity leave for public servants with regular raises and promotions based on noting but time in the job. Women and men making 20K paying for women who make 200K taking time off. They can not afford it. It is paid for by debt spending, oversqueezing business, and then municipal bankruptcy.

The private sectors reaction to obamacare in the US to get out of the unbearable cost is the same one we have here to get out of Tony Abbotts election promise of 6 months paid maternity leave, change full time jobs to part time casual. Another win for the feminists demanding equality being a pussy pass instead of performance and months of extra holiday men dont get.

Any charts showing male vs female sentences and aquittals for committing the same crimes such as murder or statutory rape? How about the Democrats agenda to have all autistic and asperger people put on a register?  How about this week the 14 year old autistic boy tortured in the most evil ways by two 15 year old girls, kicked in groin, strangled, thrown through frozen lake and put in boot/trunk to ride home so the car wasnt wet, forced bestiality, etc. Prominent feminists such as Hannah Rosin excusing it as a prank and saying charges should be dropped. How about our new laws that any person immigrating on a spouse visa can say it is consensual sex with a fiance or husband to prove to immigration its a genuine marriage, then when here say they discovered they were perfrming domestic and sexual services and the husband is charged with human trafficking?

This is why so many new pop princesses and actresses etc are specifically saying no they are not identifying as feminist when asked in interviews. Its batshit manhating crazy, a war against men financed by finished boomtimes. An illuminati agenda to destroy society and cause untold human misery by destroying the family. The husband should support a woman staying home for at least a year for each child, by just not living large. Now we need a new paradigm of ecovillages for the disposessed so men women and children can live happily like human beings again.

I heard about this on a radio interview. The host asked how the slaves had satisfied the immigration department that the marriage was genuine, and the answer was that is not the point, bthe point is that they discover when they arrive they are performing sexual and domestic services.

Your case would be thrown out of court, you ignorant troglodyte.

"Katniss Everdeen" is a fictional character.

Who next? Anne of Green Gables?

What is interesting is that many millennial women do NOT identify as feminist. Ask them if they think "equal pay for equal work," "equality" or "choice" is a good thing, and they will look at you like you've grown a head, so obvious is the expectation. But "feminist" has become a charged term, both due to the excesses of the movement and the endless pounding and propagandizing my the same arch-reactionaries that give you phrases such as, "right to work."

Young women enter the work force expecting "equality" then get a rude awakening when they're in a workplace or when they see what the actual statistics are for women. Or they meet people like you.

We Americans are also famously averse to learning the lessons of history. Dinfo as noted above, plus lack of information about feminism's history, both in the classroom and the news media, may explain millennials' dissatisfaction with the term. Plus, feminists haven't made it easy, as constant revisions to feminist rhetoric make it difficult to keep up.

Some men are just threatened by women. I'm not one of them.

Actually, what caused the debt was Industrialization and the destruction of Capital.

As Steve on Economic Undertow has demonstrated on numerous ocassions, Industrial processes never pay for themselves and always have to be funded with debt.  The capital is the stored fossil fuel energy, and when it is burned up it no longer has value, it just floats around as molecules of CO2 in the atmosphere.

As long as we burned the fossil fuels, we would have accumulated the debt no matter what.  That we accumulated so much of it pursuing endless war rather than trying to build a more sustainable system is very sad of course.

And the capitalists on the hook for said debt pay for it in part via externalized costs, as enumerated in the meme.

Obviously you can support the troops but dont support the war. Just like you can have majority support for "marriage equality" and minority support for "gay marriage".

If you call it a meme, you have to explain what the philosophy is. essentially "thats bill and thats ted" does not make a meme. A meme is a position or philosophy.

The statements alone can be read objectively are indisputable. If you disagree with them you need to say why. I would only know you disagree with them because I already know your meme.

I used to think that, but I don't anymore. I don't want to support the troops at all. I want broke-ass young people with no better prospects than to join the military to wake and smell the fucking coffee and do something else. Become WWOOFRs. I want parents to tell their kids NOT to join and get their limbs blown off and their brains rattled. I want the military to lose its ability to recruit anybody with an IQ over 70. I want my tax money spent on something besides fucking 35 billion dollar nuclear subs we don't even need.

But want in one hand and shit in the other and see which one fills up faster, I guess. Nobody cares. Phony-baloney nationalism runs rampant.

Obviously you can support the troops but dont support the war.

This classic re-frame also makes the implicit assumption that the life's of "our" troops is somehow more important than that of other nations. Let us not forget it is not just American soldiers that die but also that of opposition forces where people similar to the broke American youth have limited means of progressing in their own society and use the army as means of forging a living. So really these folks are waging a war that they are not so keen on starting themselves just so the more privileged and powerful classes can maintain the current status quo or increase their power base. Let's not forget the biggest beneficiaries do not often engage directly in war.

That is before we even consider all the deaths of civilians that goes largely unrecorded. Supporting the troops meme is just a means of distracting people about the true injustice of war. If the army in your country does not fight a just war you cannot support the troops for they embody the injustice. Let us not forget that quite often  there is no conscription so people make a willing choice to join. Part of that joining is to agree with the motives of the army. Now I can appreciate people are deceived by propaganda, they are young and don't make informed decisions etc. so there are mitigating circumstances but at the end of the day some culpability must be handed to the troops who decide to perpetuate a war by joining.

It is the public's duty to show their anger if they feel their country committed an immoral act and it is not unpatriotic to voice such criticisms. At the end of the day people need to have principles and part of having principles means standing up and defending your position when people question your judgement. To keel over after a sustained attack on your opinion just means you are fickle and have no principles.

We make much of the 450 American soldiers wo died in Iraq, but never mention the @ 500,000 Iraqi casualties*, as if brown lives don't matter. This is the great sin and stain upon the American soul. And we did it all for oil.

*casualty numbers are quite fluid and depend on the estimates and the estimators:

Iraq Family Health Survey   151,000 violent deaths   March 2003 to June 2006

Opinion Research Business 1,033,000 deaths as a result of the conflict   March 2003 to August 2007

Hold on a minute.. They have Indian dickface politicians in Louisiana and people vote for them? Thats desperate.

Louiisiana has a remarkable political pedigree for producing sui generis specimens. Maybe you heard of Huey Long, the populist who became corrupt and was a model for Robert Penn Warren's Willie Stark in "All The King's Men." then there was Edwin Edwards, a  joltily indicted criminal who faced an electoral challenge by a card-marrying Ku Klux Klansman named David Duke. that campaign engendered a campaign slogan: "Vote For the Crook: It's Important."

By comparison Jindal is a mediocrity who reads the scripts provided by his ALEC handlers. Some thought he might have a national profile, but by now he has swallowed enough shoe leather that such thoughts are pretty much absurd.

But then this IS the FSoA, where room temperature IQs can be vaulted into prominence in a trice, at a lobbyist's suggestion.

Not really a meme, but here it is. Found it interesting.

How big is Africa really? Much bigger than it looks on most maps which use the Mercator projection. In 2010, we plotted a map of Africa using Gall's Stereographic Cylindrical Projection (1855), which gives a truer indication of the continent's size compared to others. http://econ.st/1tSZcv3 (http://econ.st/1tSZcv3)

The Comanche, at least in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, cut a much wider swath in Texas than what that map shows.

I don't cry for the Comanches. They went down fighting, which is all a warrior can ask for.

And they were bad-ass warriors, and not above the occasional bloody massacre of any whites who weren't ready to defend life and property. They were also extremely cruel to their captives, as recorded by J.W. Wilbarger, who probably knew as much as any white man alive did about the Comanches (and the other dominant tribes of the day) and wrote about it in his book "Indian Depredations in Texas".

I think most Warriors also would like a level playing field.  Stone age weapons against rifles and cannon is not a very fair fight.

Uh, I think warriors sort of like to win battles too. I think warriors get a little upset when they are double crossed by whitey in treaties. But for YOU, all that is CONVENIENT "water under the bridge" and "ancient history".  ::)

Of course you don't "Cry" for the Comanche (or anybody else that has been shafted in this country, for that matter  ;D).... Because YOU think Texans OWN the land they STOLE from the Comanche. The LAW OF CONQUEST, my arse! The Comanche were CONNED with Treaties to AVOID a lot of warfare and let the ILLEGAL wave of settlers do a LOT of the killing and poisoning while the federal Government played blind, deaf and dumb.

The Comanche haven't forgotten. Good for them. Keep your powder dry. The Comanche will come roaring back with the coming civilizational collapse. Comanche PAYBACK is a REAL bitch! LOL!

Surly,
Before you read that WHITEY propaganda about the Comanche, I suggest you watch this historical video of the great tribal leaders in this country.

By the time the Comanche adopted such cruel tactics, they were a people that had, FOR CENTURIES, been victorious in defending their territory from whitey by beating back the Spaniards.

When the huge whitey wave from the U.S. came, they couldn't handle the numbers. A people under that kind situation facing genocide tend to get pretty barbaric. We would be just as bad in similar circumstances. The aggressor and people in the wrong was whitey, period.

I notice Eddie never complained about the incredible cruelty our troops have visited on the Filipinos,  Vietnamese and Iraqis. And we did not even face an existential threat! But let someone mention Texas stolen land and he is Johnny on the SPOT in defending the status quo!

Texans OWE the Comanche that land. I support the return of Comanche land to them. Eddie will NEVER support that no matter how much proof he has that it was STOLEN from the Comanche.

Don't hyperventilate, AG.

The book in question is a fascinating account of a survivor's tale, from what I read. It has merit from that alone.

Some years ago I read a book about tecumseh which asserted that the Indians learned scalping from whites. This article would seem to confirm that assertion.

Who Scalped Whom? Historians Suggest Indians Were As Much Victims As Perpetrators (http://www.hawthorneinsalem.org/ScholarsForum/MMD2263.html)

Yes Im with AGB on this, the aboriginals did not do the shit they did to whitey in their wars with each other which were more just skirmishes.

I will take fotos to show you guys of the local convict cells at the tiny town I live near which is constructed of stone about the size of two bedrooms and housed 300 convicts, they could not even lie down when they were not working (treated WORSE than negro slaves because they were supplied for free sorry agb) and i figure they were a tad tired.

About  8 km or 5 miles down the road there is another reconstructed and restored building this was a major big farm and still is, but the convict holding was constructed of timer, as well as the farmhouse all now reconstructed and restored. Theres local folklore that if you go there at night you can hear a bunch of screaming. Why? The aboriginals burnt down the houses if they were built of timber and speared anyone escaping. Tullochgoram was a major massacre of settlers and convicts, wheras the previous history of the EXTINCT Tasmanian aboriginal tribes is of loose border treaties and skirmishes as well as alliances and right of passage due to trade in and over various natural resources.

I was doing some reading about the Comanche. According to the Texas Historical Society, the first documented presence of the Comanche in Texas, was in 1743, when a band of them showed up in San Antonio (already colonized by the Spanish). They were originally from further North, and were pushed South by other tribes into Texas. At that time they were looking to kick some Lipan Apache butt.

They didn't arrive en masse as a tribe, but just as wandering family bands. As time went on, more and more of them moved south, following the buffalo.

Comanches were transformed by their exposure to the horse, and their culture evolved to center around horsemanship. If the white man hadn't brought horses from Europe, the Comanches might never have even come to Texas.

When the Anglos first came to Texas around 1820 or so, the Comanches traded with them and got modern weapons from them, which they used to great advantage on their enemies, by then the Spanish and the Apache. It wasn't until later that those two groups (Anglo and Comanche) squared off against each other.

I wasn't alive back then, and I'm not going to pretend to be guilty for what my race supposedly (my family didn't get here until 1855,btw)  did to some other race long before any of us now living was even born. In my opinion, the Comanche and all the other Native Americans got a raw deal, but there is nothing I can do about that.

There is so much history of land grabbing here, mostly by the rich railroad barons who bought off the early state government. Every native Texan has a right to be pissed off about the way land has been ripped off from them, not just the Comanche.

There are less than 15000 registered Comanches in the tribe today. You only have to be 1/8 to register. There probably aren't 1000 full blood Comanches left. I'm less worried about Comanche attack than Zombie attack.

In his book 'The Devastation of the Indies', Bartolome de las Casas, the priest who accompanied Columbus on his conquest of Cuba, detailed the abuse and murder of the native population:

"And the Christians, with their horses and swords and pikes began to carry out massacres and strange cruelties against them. They attacked the towns and spared neither the children nor the aged nor pregnant women nor women in childbed, not only stabbing them and dismembering them but cutting them to pieces as if dealing with sheep in the slaughter house. They laid bets as to who, with one stroke of the sword, could split a man in two or could cut off his head or spill out his entrails with a single stroke of the pike. They took infants from their mothers’ breasts, snatching them by the legs and pitching them head first against the crags or snatched them by the arms and threw them into the rivers, roaring with laughter and saying as the babies fell into the water, “Boil there, you offspring of the devil!” Other infants they put to the sword along with their mothers and anyone else who happened to be nearby. They made some low wide gallows on which the hanged victim’s feet almost touched the ground, stringing up their victims in lots of thirteen, in memory of Our Redeemer and His twelve Apostles, then set burning wood at their feet and thus burned them alive. To others they attached straw or wrapped their whole bodies in straw and set them afire. With still others, all those they wanted to capture alive, they cut off their hands and hung them round the victim’s neck, saying, “Go now, carry the message,” meaning, Take the news to the Indians who have fled to the mountains. They usually dealt with the chieftains and nobles in the following way: they made a grid of rods which they placed on forked sticks, then lashed the victims to the grid and lighted a smoldering fire underneath, so that little by little, as those captives screamed in despair and torment, their souls would leave them…."

Finland has achieved the lowest child poverty in the world through a mix of family-friendly policies that balance work and life, including one year of paid parental leave, universal childcare, government provided child support payments if one parent can't/wont pay, basic income for children under 17, and a guaranteed job for everyone under 25. Also, the Finnish government has a Children's Parliament and Youth Council which includes 9 to 18 year old representatives. What a surprise, kids get to decide policy, and they vote not to go hungry.

Amazing what a country can achieve when not burdening its citizens with the expense of an empire to protect the fortunes of a handful.

Part of our continuing series, "Enjoy the Aftermath."

WHY ELECTIONS MATTER: Look at the current and future Senate chair of the Environment & Public Works Committee, which oversees issues such as clean air, water, endangered species, and pollution.

The chairmanship switches from Barbara Boxer (D-CA), one of the strongest champions of the environment to none other than James Inhofe (R-OK), who famously wrote the book “The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future” and once compared the EPA to Nazis.

It’s a stark reminder for people who don’t vote that elections have serious repercussions for issues such as the environment.

The rise of right wing groups as well as gaining middle ground politics all over the world is in no small part a reaction to radical feminists making the left look like lunatics. Voters look mainly for self interest issues, or often know nothing at all about a local choice of candidate and base their opinion/vote on his/her team from what they see on TV from the more prominent personalities and their own reaction to that.

If you look at the zero-hedge article from yesterday for example;

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-08/about-americas-sudden-fascination-hiring-young-women (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-11-08/about-americas-sudden-fascination-hiring-young-women)

and then read the comments you see how the resentment of the elephant in the room slowly seeps out. This is all over now every loosely related article now, at least as many women as men leaving comments condemning the PC thought policing that they associate with one particular end of the political spectrum.

If youre not up to speed with Barbara Boxer's states universities legalities regarding reversing rape culture, there are plenty of vids designed to educate: heres Feminism for Bros.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVHYvUpeqKI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bVHYvUpeqKI)

this is the new standard for established couples also;

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdrbNGmuw0k (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KdrbNGmuw0k)

Notice that comments are disabled on both.

The break from aryan actors in advertising is refreshing, but they leave out the issue of supporting evidence required as well as retroactive revoking of qualifications. There are numerous stories already of ivy leaguers lives ruined when they had hardly began, and former feminist legal eagles speaking against all this after it happens to their own sons. Having a daughter at university should only concern her parents that she gets good grades and doesnt date dirtbags, not also that she might go to jail for making contact with a basketballers bicep if he later claims he only consented to the tricep. But house arrest here might not be so bad.

Consider birth rates of conservatives vs liberals before assuming sperm counts, and it is divorced, broke (in both financial and mental sense of the word) fathers, accused of abuse as a matter of course and estranged from their children concieved of their sperm that have the greatest grievance. But the issue is not whether you are able to be articulate for attraction. Saying she loved your latin is no defence if you dump her and hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. You manipulated her mind and regret means retroactive rape. Thats a claim of feminists gone too far for me.

 The United States is chock-full of so-called cultural conservatives, radical fundamentalists, and other people who never got over the advent of the pill, and the resultant control it gave women over their sexual lives, and who are trying every measure to stuff the genie back in the bottle.

I cant say I know about that. Harking back to a 1960's issue suggests it was solid then wheras now theres not much being fought for thats logically defensible. 15 odd years ago I read so many articles and letters to the editor in Kenya, claiming there would be Sodom and Gomorah due to the availability of condoms even as AIDS wiped them out weekly. I find it hard to believe anyone other than octomum really wants ten children or for anyone else if they visit a city the size of sao paulo or mega-manila.

Excuse me if I fail to rally to the first world problems of privileged white males who lack the cleverness or social graces to chat up women.

I think the creep-shaming cult is creating the problem but in practice has as much to do with looks and status as charm. You can be boring if you make bank. 'Where are all the eligible men/why wont commit?' constant questioning is due to more hiring of women than men at the moment and 2/3 of college grads being women. This leaves more men with poorer prospects left by the wayside and wealthy well built guys (especially with the gift of the gab) with many options. It all depends on whether you are Tom Joad or Tom Cruise. If youre not so smooth, saying and signing for every micro move as the feminists require should fill in any gaps in conversation anyway. I just hope male feminists own all this and walk the talk. Bill or Barak being safe from prosecution after a successful seduction with Hill or Michelle would be patriarchal privilege.

 I get the sense we're talking about several different things here, Bob.  It seems to me that you seem to have a problem with the rules of the road being slightly tilted toward women, in work and in law, or at least as you perceive it. Trust me, many women would vigorously disagree with that assessment.  What I'm talking about has to do mostly with the right-wing cargo cult in this country that insists on rolling back both social justice and reproductive freedom for women.

The woman with whom I live had worked tirelessly her entire life in a male dominated sales field, trying to carve out a living while the members of the boys' club never made it easy for her. You have to have a lot of courage and a lot of pluck and a lot of resourcefulness to just show up every day under those circumstances. Contrary has told me stories about some of the shit she has had to endure, and truth be told, she may have given as good as she got. Almost. She probably could've done without the stalking…

 So that changes my view of the subject. Otherwise, we may just be talking past one another.

...but it's nice to be back.

New 'Stupidity Virus' Discovered, Scientists Say (http://abcnews.go.com/Health/stupidity-virus-discovered-scientists/story?id=26834631)

Nov 11, 2014, 12:12 PM ET
By LIZ NEPORENT (http://abcnews.go.com/author/liz_neporent)

The next time you lose your keys or bomb a test, try blaming it on a virus. Researchers from Johns Hopkins University and the University of Nebraska have discovered a virus that makes you just a little bit dumber.

The scientists stumbled upon the previously unknown "stupidity virus" in the throat cultures of healthy subjects during a completely unrelated experiment. The 44 percent of people who tested positive for the virus performed 7 to 9 points lower on IQ tests that measured attention span and how fast and accurately people process visual information.

When the Nebraska researchers injected the virus into the digestive systems of mice, same thing. The rodents blundered around mazes, appeared flummoxed by new toys and seemed oblivious to new entry ways in and out of their cages. In short, they acted a tiny bit stupider than the average mouse.

“This is a striking example showing that the ‘innocuous’ microorganisms we carry can affect behavior and cognition,” said lead investigator Dr. Robert Yolken, a virologist and pediatric infectious disease specialist at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center in Baltimore who led the study.

Yolken said this unintended study provides a good example of how behavior and psychology come down to more than the genes you inherit from your parents. Some of these traits may be shaped and influenced by the trillions of viruses, bacteria and fungi that colonize our bodies, he said.

Viruses are infectious agents that invade cells and replicate themselves within those cells, said Dr. Aaron E. Glatt, a spokesman for the Infectious Disease Society of America. Once they enter a host, they range from completely benign or, as is the case of the Ebola virus (http://abcnews.go.com/topics/lifestyle/health/ebola-virus.htm), they can be deadly.

Glatt said while he is skeptical of a virus can actually affect intelligence, he is keeping an open mind.

“We don’t completely understand the full implications of viruses yet but they, obviously, can impact the functioning of cells and entire organism with a myriad of outcomes,” he said.

Yolken said this particular virus may work by changing the way genes are expressed in an area of the brain responsible for memory and other higher brain functions. He also said he has suspected for some time that viruses have ways of messing with human intelligence.

In previous studies, for example, his team found small but definite decreases in cognitive function after exposure to the common herpes (http://abcnews.go.com/topics/lifestyle/health/herpes.htm) simplex virus.

The new research appears in the latest issue of the online journal, Proceedings of the National Academy of Science.

is
 It does matter, because the Kochs wish to deny to their competition the favorable tax treatment that they enjoy, and pay armies of lobbyists to collect.  As we've seen from the many examples posted by agelbert, many areas of the world are exploiting renewables to good effect.  The Koch brothers wish to strangle these technologies in their cribs. The only vision of the future that is sustainable has to include decentralized, renewable energy sources employing a mix of technologies. And even in the best case scenario fueled by wide-eyed optimism, that would only supply a small percentage of the energy we need (or more to the point, waste.)

Look no further than the example of the "gated community" for example of what net energy descent might look like. Walled fiefs where the anointed enjoy the fruits of abundance, close to life as the 1% currently enjoy it, while those of us less fortunate roast a rat over a dung fire.

That is a really good question.  It definitely does not have an easy answer in general.  For St. John's Wort, though, it is a pretty good bet.  It is generally classified as an invasive and toxic weed.  It pretty much grows anywhere the least bit temperate.

No picture can be as offensive as the obvious murder of a citizen ( Eric Garner) by a peace officer that was witnessed by the whole world. I will gladly stop making scary pictures when bad cops are actually held accountable for their crimes. I get no pleasure from these cathartic creations.

My first wife is a redhead.  All in all, everything considered, It was a good six years. We just went  in different directions.  She was kinda FIERY in general.  ;)

Forget about the food, what about the lack of prozac when the shelves empty.

Excellent question in a society where people eat SSRIs like M&Ms.

I have to go to Toronto in March and I want to also see as much of the US as I can in a week, but while i might have to hire a car in canada I have decided I will only travel by train and taxi in the US because I dont trust your police. This must be doing wonders for tourism.

An excellent question, but I can't hazard a guess.

IMO, most Americans still think that since I'm OK, police brutality and armed robbery isn't a problem. Until the Utah cops arrest YOUR vacation money.

Oh puh-lease.... they know which side their bread is buttered on.  If you want to go see Niagara Falls, Mount Rushmore, the Grand Canyon, Las Vegas, or any of the other numerous spots that depend on tourists to bring in revenue, the cops are not going to harass you (as long as you don't look too poor).  Once you get off the beaten path, though, yeah, you definitely need to watch yourself.

Bob, don't let fear dictate your life. If you come out west to vegas
or the grand canyon let me know, I'll be your huckleberry.
I'll give you the silver dollar tour of my gold mine.
That's a bucket list item bubba.
Niagara falls is breathtaking & so is Mt. Rushmore.
The locals are friendly, I've been to both places.
If your in half decent shape you can hike the grand canyon down to
Supai falls, & helicopter up, or go by horseback.

Bob,
We get bus loads of folks from down under here every day. I can tell you one thing
they are the biggest bunch of happy campers I've ever seen. The Germans have a deal
where they rent Harleys either in vegas or L.A. & travel  Rt 66. They stop here in my town
& mill around & have a blast. This desert we live in is magical to say the least. Actually, I
live in two types of landscapes. To the east is all high country with forest land, to the west
is the beautiful Mohave desert. I'm 30 miles south of the Grand Canyon, west rim area where
"Skywalk" is located.

I first started taking first mom, and then friends, and then the wife and kids, to Rushmore in 1992. The Crazy Horse monument doesn't look much different now from then. It is unfortunate that their progress has been so slow, I think they have put far more money into the visitor center than they have the actual blasting.

Off the beaten path at the Grand Canyon, Mount Rushmore or Las Vegas? Well, the only folks who hassle you around the Grand Canyon are the Indians mostly, Niagara Falls is no problem day or night on any path, Las Vegas is safer than around the Navajo around the Grand Canyon but it is more irritating personally because folks will come up to you alot selling things. That gets old fast. None of them are as bad as Washington near Independence or Connecticut after dark.

Good Morning Surly, this reminds me in a way  of JHK's remarks often made about our crumbling strip malls and main streets in our once lovey country.

In the Boston area, considered pretty much different from the rest of the economy due to its unusually large student presence, the same thing is starkly true. Strip malls and nice friendly local businesses that made each community unique and kind of special with it's own identity are vanishing fast. For rent signs everywhere. soaped up windows, cheap neon take out joints, not a pretty sight and a sign of big problems coming I'm afraid.

Enjoyed your posting, am an admirer of Hopper's work, and couldn't help wondering what he would be painting these days.

If all those homeless folks could deliver tons of ordnance a hundred miles deep into enemy territory while being mostly invisible to radar coverage and could fight their way through enemy air opposition along the way, I say ask them to take $1 less and give them the job.

But, and I'm guessing here, that they can't. Otherwise someone would have thought of this already to save money on delivering that ordnance.

That meme refers to the F-35, which has never delivered any ordinance, and probably never will. It is the worst kind of example of a government that is fiscally and politically out of control. If the F-35 ever goes into battle, it will probably be shot down as easily as a homeless guy and a hang-glider. Which makes your babble about the homeless doubly idiotic. Triply so, based on the fact that the American war machine simply makes war now, and then later makes a show of asking.

Very unlikely, based on the number of flight trials already accomplished and hours logged on the prototypes. Also, this is a complaint not much different than the Osprey, and in the end it worked out okay. Some bugs here, some changes there, and there will come a day when ordnance is dropped onto some unsuspecting bad guy.

Well, the government out of control is one thing, and most know it, but this is NOT the worst example. The EPA, Bridge to Nowhere, Katrina, Obamacare, No Child Left Behind, gutless response in Libya, Syria and against ISIS, there are plenty of worse examples.

Nah. No easier or worse than F16's or Warthogs or all the other instruments designed to protect fine folks in Minnesota, Texas or Virginia.

Actually...it was completely factual. You get the homeless folks to accomplish everything that an F-35 can and I'll be right there in the crowd demanding that we Americans save money by letting them.

The Pentagon plans to spend about $10.6 billion on the F-35 in the fiscal year ending Oct. 1, a 23 percent increase over the previous year. The money will buy 57 aircraft versus 38 from the prior spending plan. The procurement figure is also higher than the 55 the Pentagon had previously said it was planning to buy this year. - See more at: http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/02/02/Pentagon-s-Too-Big-Fail-F-35-Gets-Another-106-Billion#sthash.Y7HVbPQ2.dpuf (http://www.thefiscaltimes.com/2015/02/02/Pentagon-s-Too-Big-Fail-F-35-Gets-Another-106-Billion#sthash.Y7HVbPQ2.dpuf)

True that. But being battle tested isn't that relevant, every bird has to be tested in battle before being battle tested, and for that to happen it must be built and deployed. The Warthog is perfect example, designed for a Soviet invasion of Europe that never happened, it was as thoroughly unbattle tested as it could be and the Air Force hated it. But when the battle came along, NOT being battle tested first did not stop it from kicking ass. Whooo Yah.

(http://www.thepowerhour.com/articles/highway_death3.jpg)

And as truthful as I am, I will admit in advance that if the homeless are capable of doing what those WartHogs did in Iraq, and could do it for $1 less, I would be in an crowd lobbying for them to be given the opportunity to do so.

Yes...all planes that lose all engine power are required to glide because...the pilots ejection seat is deactivated at the same time...mmmmm......

I didn't say this bird was great. I said if the homeless folks can do the same job for $1 less, they should get the money instead, and can buy those mansions.

I think the WartHog is great, the F16 pretty good for the price, the Super Hornet is all the Navy needs for many years in the future, and that saturating an opponents airspace with these, 1000 at a time, is the wave of the future.

Which is why it is an American strategy, and explains certain capabilities of our military. Imagine how pissed off you would be if Canadian Muslim Crusaders were firing Hellfire missiles into YOUR next wedding party, we would all be screaming for a military to stop such horrors. Funny how those of us who have benefited from this type of military capability take our security for granted, isn't it?

Quote from: WHD

Incidentally, MKing, I don't think you are repulsive. I think most of your ideas are.

I don't have feelings of morality or ethics about ideas. They are just ideas. There is no good or bad ideas, there are only ideas. Most people do seem to require it be a personal thing for some reason. Never understood such a thing myself, but then objectivity and critical analysis is a hallmark of proper scientific training.

Now, certainly there are ACTIONS which are good and bad, repulsive or not, kind of horrific. But I am an absolute advocate of the sanctity of human thought, any idea, any thought, any dream or artistic creation has as much right to be talked about, discussed, argued over, written into music, drawn on canvas, acted out in a play, ignored, shuffled aside, denigrated, called names or laughed at.

Which is why others who cannot allow a differing opinion, a well informed dissent, even the hint of a better idea, into the conversation is such an amazing thing.

My personal take on the matter summed up here. I once thought everyone had this capability. Peak oil and the  blogosphere taught me otherwise.

This collection of common myths was compiled by “data journalist” David McCandles.

In regard to our perspective, what we think is influenced by our friends and family, as well as by the things we see. We also take a clue from the media, who themselves sometimes accidentally help perpetuate myths (watch this great TED talk by Hans Rosling). HeI also debunks 8 important myths about ecosystems in ecology (in this text here) and about evolution, if you’re still hungry for some knowledge.

Well, if the people of America are going to continue on their tradition of sitting around collecting workers comp, various forms of social security disability, reaping their subsidized health care (as opposed to getting healthy) and college education benefits so they can become more educated in undergrad history studies from which they can better complain about their lot in life, well.....the dentists of the world aren't about to unite to keep the power on so...sure....robots.

Pretty much. And almost by definition that means we won't be finding any "truly fighting the corporations" on web forums and blogs and whatnot.

This is utter nonsense in typical Moriarty style.

You can't walk out the door without using something manufactured by corporations, like for instance your clothes.  In fact you can't stay indoors either and not be using corporate manufactured stuff, everything in your McMansion is manufactured by a corporation.  The ridiculous argument he makes is that you can't protest against this as long as you are wearing corporate made clothes, live in a corporate made McMansion, drive a corporate made car, etc.  This is insane, because then the only people left who could protest it are Kalahari Bushmen!  They can't get to the Demonstrations, because to get there they would have to fly in corporate owned jets!  Not even the fucking Amish could protest, because they use farm implements produced by corporations.  The wood they use to build their barns comes from Weyerhauser.  You see Amish people buying hardware at Home Depot.

You can see how utterly stupid this idea is, but nevertheless Moriarty uses it to further disrupt the forum and continue to act out his role as apologist for Corporate Amerika.

The photo he dropped on here with all the annotations is actually a testament to how utterly trapped the population is by all this stuff.  You can't get away from it, even on an Amish farm.  To protest it in Moriarty's view, you have to show up naked at the demonstration and walk to get there barefoot, because you can't even ride a bicycle since that was made by a Schwinn Factory now located in China, or wear Nike Sneakers produced in a Korean Factory either.

Making it clear:
Nuland and the rest of the U.S. government/media and our puppet government in the Ukraine are ramping up the anti-Russia propaganda and out-and-out lies as they send their troops into Ukraine, completely ignoring the temporary ceasefire in eastern Ukraine as a result of the Minsk peace talks. Every time you hear the words "Russian aggression," note where the fighting was…in the east…not in Kiev or western Ukraine.

Yet another reason to love Denmark:

The government of Denmark has launched a plan to speed conversion to organic agriculture and increase the demand for organic food. The new plan strongly focuses on increasing organic meals served to the public sector, including care facilities, government institutions and hospitals. Denmark's goal is to increase organics to 60% of food served in public institutions. Serving organic food to sick people in hospitals - what a concept.

Rock throwing makes it all sound like just...good old fashion fun. Maybe for some it is, but for those whom it isn't? Like say shopkeepers and such, they probably think that community shaming would be enough to keep this from happening. Doesn't appear to have worked. All those folks upset over police brutality apparently thought they deserved compensation.

From Anthony Freda, whose illustrations I often use/plunder for blog posts:
THE SAME TEAM?
Black vs. White, Cop vs. Citizen, Democrat vs. Republican, Jew vs. Muslim vs. Christian, Man vs. Woman.
Let's all kill each other while the establishment that thrives on our division fans the flames and exploits the hatred.
Let's never realize what we have in common, let's exaggerate our differences and demonize our 'opposition' till we destroy each other.
Sounds reasonable to me.

I like Francis, but I wonder if he ever considers the Church's culpability in the population overshoot. I never hear about him addressing that issue. I'm sort of with Ray Jason on that one.

Waste of  money keeping him alive too. I read though, that he only took the plea bargain because he thought it might take scrutiny off his crazy family, who probably should still be closely watched, based on their prior behavior. It's perfectly okay with me for the cops to surveil their asses.

I think it would depend on some of the particulars of the asses. Some are obviously more worth watching then others.

There is no requirement of impotence to enjoy gazing upon whatever some young lady might wish to display to the general public. Watching asses just happened to be the prior topic, but certainly what some young lady decides to display to the viewing public isn't limited to just hind quarters.

I don't know what a "bonobo cousin" is or how that relates to a healthy sex life, but I've been married a long, long time, and am quite happy with everything that entails. Both in terms of nuclear family responsibilities and…benefits….  :icon_sunny: :icon_sunny:

My wife, at 61, is still a very lovely woman, and I'm very attracted to her. I have a gorgeous tasteful nude of her I had commissioned by Rob Harrell when she was 52. I hope it scandalizes our future great grandchildren someday.

What do you have against Bonobos? They are from the good side of our evolutionary tree. It's the chimps you should be badmouthing.

We like Rob's work. I also have this piece of his.

Eddie you cad!!!! How dare you find a nice young lady and corrupt her so!!!

My wife wouldn't sit still for such a thing. But I must admit that modern communications have made it very easy to combine sexting with selfies that seem to have the purpose of making sure that hubby wants to come home as soon as possible when traveling.

Responses there include "Knife, rope, boots and first aid kit," and "Knife, saw,boots n matches."

Other comments on the original include, "Water purifier, first aid kit, hiking boots, hunting rifle" and "5 oz of weed, matches, tent to hotbox, and the rifle to shoot myself when i run outta weed." Your mileage may vary.

What would you choose?
Title: Re: The Daily Meme
Post by: Eddie on May 22, 2015, 06:10:11 AM
That would just depend.....are we talking a Caribbean island, or an island north of Vancouver somewhere? Because the choices would be different.

On an island, there are several things I could instantly eliminate as useless:

Compass
TP
iPod
Weed
Volleyball (I never talk to volleyballs)

All the other items would be highly useful, at least potentially.

I'd probably jettison the first aid kit though, although it'd be nice. if I could only keep four things and I wasn't injured, I'd trade that for something of immediate usefulness, like the knife.

In the tropics, the hammock might keep crabs from eating your face while you sleep. In the cold north, the tarp might save your life. In the tropics, the tarp would be be very nice to have, but hardly essential. Tent? Nah. It's a luxury, unless you're in the arctic or something.

Insect repellent? Nice, but after a day or two it'd be gone. Jettison that.

The water purifier would be nice, but the pot and matches would work for that, and give other benefits too.

Hunting rifle? Does it come with lots of bullets? Are there bears on this island?

Rope would be a keeper...so knife and rope and matches and pot.

Fishing rod might be substituted for rope. That's worth considering. Does it come with hooks and tackle? If not, jettison.

The other things...mirror, flare gun, raft. Those are rescue items. Makes them of secondary importance to survival gear for me.

What's left...vitamins, flashlight, boots, sunscreen, saw...all highly desirable, but not essential.

Bottom line, four things is not enough gear. You'd die, most likely.

There's a Max Size Limit to your Portable Porn Viewer.

It needs to stay small enough to fit in the Breast Pocket of a Blazer or Jacket, or one of the Pockets on your Cargo Jeans.

I recommend the Galaxy Mega from Samsung.

You also get UNLIMITED Storage for Porn on Micro SD Cards you can purchase up to 128 GB Each!

However, latest models have removed the SD card slot from what I have read, so you'll need to shop on Ebay for one of the older models.

I have 2 of them, and will part with one for the right offer.  LOL.

Only Doomer Porn currently stored on them though.

"People used to think the world was flat, like a pizza. They were wrong. The world is round. Like a pizza." - Lisa Fenner

One of the prevailing myths of our time is the belief that people in the Middle ages thought the world was flat. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Myth_of_the_Flat_Earth) Amongst the educated in the Middle ages it was universally acknowledged that the world was spherical and this view was held since ancient Greece.

As for Columbus the main contention for his voyage was not that his crew will fall off the "edge" of the world rather it was the belief that his journey to the far East was too far for his boats to support as his ships would not be able to carry the necessary amount of food to make the voyage. The only reason Columbus went on the journey in the first place is he inaccurately calculated it would be 5000km to Japan and it just happened he landed on then unknown region of America which by chance was in the place he expected Japan to be. The reason his crew almost went into mutiny was not because they feared sinking into some abyss rather it was the simple fact they were on the brink of starvation and there was no scope for them getting more food in their journey.

From what I have read and seen in documentaries it would appear that most of these false ideas became popularised during the Victorian era when various authors painted the idea the middle-ages was worse and less enlightened than it really was. The other common view often raised was the church during this period was anti-science when in fact it was the monks of this era who offered one of the few sanctuaries in maintaining theories from the ancient Greeks and Romans. The church also were responsible for funding the most ancient and prestigious universities in England; Cambridge and Oxford. What's more much of the innovation in engineering and architecture was spurred on by the church as they wished to build more elaborate places of worship. To understand the world more clearly was to be closer to God as you had a firmer grasp on the laws of nature that God created. The real conflicts with science came later when certain theories went against the prevailing views in the Bible.

Also like most major institutions the Church had its fair of corruption due to having excessive power and money which often undermined their basic ethos which was especially true of the monks. The important thing to gather is quite often history is written not to tell the truth but to present in the way somebody wishes you to see the past. Sometimes it does well to examine commonly held views and scrutinise whether they are actually true.

You can read a little into this here: http://www.strangenotions.com/gods-philosophers/ (http://www.strangenotions.com/gods-philosophers/) and here: https://jamescungureanu.wordpress.com/2013/03/06/myths-about-science-and-religion-that-the-medieval-christian-church-suppressed-the-growth-of-science/ (https://jamescungureanu.wordpress.com/2013/03/06/myths-about-science-and-religion-that-the-medieval-christian-church-suppressed-the-growth-of-science/)

I hear Barclays are trying to do similar things although it is still in the development/pilot stages. From what I hear Barclays will roll out online security features where your fingerprint or more precisely "fingervein" are used to determine your identity. Finger-vein ID does not actually record your fingerprints rather the unique vein patterns in your finger. This method of identification is used as it is more secure than fingerprint technology as that can be potentially bypassed by using old prints on glass or an old dismembered finger. With fingervein you need an actual live finger to make it work and according to Barclays they will not hold records of your actual vein pattern. If you can believe that. ::) Here is a story for this technology:

The plan is to start from the top so Barclays Wealth customers (read pigmen) will get it first followed by Barclays Premier customers (individuals with an annual income of $110,000 or a household income of $220,000) then finally the regulars.

Anthony Freda.

Thinking of knarf's post about transgenderism and Eddie's response.
Freda puts it in perspective. While we're jolted by fear and thinking about this crap, our minds are not on the real issues-- and the real thieves diligently sacking Rome.

My wife could be the one holding this. The McKinney incident made her extremely angry. Most women are mothers first, and senseless aggression towards kids by police is something that pisses Moms off, regardless of race.

 one solution when your fringe is migrating north.

I turned on AM radio to check the weather yesterday afternoon, and the local quasi-libertarian talk show host was taking the tack that outliers like Trump are good for the presidential race because he will call out the professional Rethuglican candidates, as Bernie Sanders will call out the Dems. I suppose there's some logic there.... but he just seems like such an idiot. Proof that it isn't brains that make a man rich, if you ever needed it.

But people end up rallying behind candidates that promise the moon and the stars, as he does. He wants to paint himself as the jobs candidate, as if he could just hire every unemployed American... maybe put them on a reality show. I'm sure TPTB consider him dangerous and a loose cannon they might not be able to control.

No political  strategist ever lost an election by underestimating the intelligence of the American voter.

Donald Trump Farts Out Yoogest, Classiest Presidential Campaign Announcement, From His Butt

 

image: http://img.wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_1048.jpg

The classiest, most bee-yooo-tiful sign at Trump Tower

 

Decrepit sewer vulture Donald Trump finally answered our years of prayers to the comedy gods by announcing he will run for president in 2016. The mogul-shaped puddle of feral rat spooge made the announcement from the yoogest, classiest skyscraper ever constructed by man, Trump Tower in New York City. And yr Wonkette, tired of summering in Connecticut like a drunken dilettante in a Cheever story, thought attending this laugh-fest would be a nice way to spend a morning. Come, let us squint through the glare of the Trump Tower lobby’s miles of marble and gold flake together.

 

image: http://img.wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_1056.jpg

Let the fun begin!

The Trump press office had ignored our email requesting media credentials, so of course we’re not on the list. We are set to pretend to be shocked, but the pretty young thing at the check-in table (there are lots of pretty young things working for Trump walking around) takes our word for it that we’re from the political blog Wonkette, which we have to spell for her. Twice. She hands us a pass on a lanyard and has a bored-looking security guard lead us to the press area.

 

image: http://img.wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_1060.jpg

Free swag!

 

We’re crammed into this space at the bottom of an atrium in Trump Tower. The first person we recognize is ace Breitbart cub reporter Matthew Boyle. Must be some Dominican hookers nearby! Matt is wearing a tie and blazer. We’re feeling seriously underdressed.

Ed Schultz is also here, apparently upset because the Trump Ice Cream Parlor is closed and hoping there is another branch on an upper floor.

 

image: http://img.wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_1012.jpg

A fellow Maury H.S. alum! Hi Ed!

 

Meanwhile there are dozens of Trump fans, all wearing T-shirts reading “Trump: Make America Great Again!” lining the halls. We’re betting there are as many media people here as members of the public. And yet Trump is out-polling Marco Rubio in New Hampshire. Go figure.

 

image: http://img.wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_1019.jpg

Trump loves America! And America loves Trump!

 

By the way, the pre-speech music assaulting our eardrums? “Memories.” Inspiring! And keeping with Trump’s theme of “America sucks, but I’ll lead us back to the light.”

Trump progeny Ivanka Trump comes to the podium to introduce her father, and a forest of Burberry-clad arms sprouts in the atrium as everyone holds up their phones to snap pictures. We can see nothing, so we just hold up our own phone and hope for the best. We end up with an image that is either Ivanka or her Madame Tussaud statue melting in the sun. Curse our stubby legs.

 

image: http://img.wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_1028.jpg

Pretty much how we see everything by closing time...what's that? It's not even noon?

 

Then The Donald himself is here, walking onstage to the strains of “Rockin’ in the Free World.” Someone get Neil Young’s lawyer on the line.

Trump is wearing a red power tie and an American flag lapel pin. From this distance, his infamous toupee looks tame, but his eyebrows are so bushy, Simba could be hiding in them, waiting for a herd of unwitting gazelles to wander by. If that’s not a metaphor for Trump running for president, we don’t know what is.

The speech is vintage Trump bullshit. The Japanese are beating us. And the Chinese. And the Mexicans, who are swarming across our border like little brown locusts. Scary and weirdly colored foreigners stealing all our jobs, and money and oil is a huge theme of this speech, though Trump assures us he loves the Chinese and the Saudis who buy apartments in Trump Tower. So let that be a lesson to Mexican migrants: Get some money if you want Donald Trump’s seal of approval.

White supremacy dressed up in a tailored suit and surrounded by acres of expensive marbled luxury is still white supremacy.

 

image: http://img.wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_1046.jpg

The sign on the podium sounds about right.

 

If the speech seemed long on television, we can assure you it felt interminable while crammed into the press pen. There is no way this man is a serious candidate for president, but he is pretending otherwise so the assembled members of the Fourth Estate have to pretend right along with him. We hear some laughter and see some eyes roll, but mostly everyone seems bored as they type on their phones or scribble in their notebooks.

 

image: http://img.wonkette.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/06/IMG_1021.jpg

Ink-stained wretches

 

Then, mercifully, it’s over. We join the shuffle of ink-stained wretches toward the escalator that will take us back up to street level and blessed freedom. Only a security officer stops us. The Trump family is walking down the short hallway, heading for a nearby elevator. The women are impossibly thin and blonde, and the older sons are so oily they look like they just climbed out of a derrick in the Bakken oil fields.

Then there is the great man himself, pausing to shake a few hands and throw us some thumbs-up. He’s in his element: All the attention of the press and the public, of several cable nets, this whole day is about him, the shyster real-estate developer gone big time. He and his family get into a private elevator, cordoned off behind a wall of security, and then they are gone, headed off to the campaign trail.

It is not usually politically correct to mention that sweat, some brains or balls, and a little luck can go a long way towards separating folks into various socio-economic classes. If you are white, perhaps a professional, you are the monied elite, harnessing the oppressed for your own ends. No other story is permitted.

Not everyone buys into this kind of horseshit of course, but it is becoming increasingly popular as the country trends socialist.

I haven't heard one Diner speak well of Hillary, a place where liberals outnumber conservatives by a very wide margin, 99 to 1 would be my guess. :exp-laugh:

Yet they give us Hillary.

Likewise the Conservatives on the Diner can only speak well of Bernie Sanders, a Dem, who is considered to have no chance, and have little good to say about Jeb, with the exception of Doc, who considers him smart.

Yet you continue with this nonsense. When do you realize that we are presented with puppets?

You post how the corporations have taken over with their money contributions, and want to blame us for what is in office. :icon_scratch:

Because there are more folks that vote than corporations. So if we didn't want corporate interest representatives voted in, we would vote for those non-corporate interest candidates. So sure, in a representative form of government, you get exactly the government you deserve. We deify corporations and money, so we get politicians representing them. And us.

Not so much wrong Surly as being outdated. That may have been correct in the 1950's perhaps, but it is my view our system has been taken over.

My candidate, Ron Paul, was not even allowed on the ballot as my posting on Dictator Boehner explained.

We are told whom we may vote for is my only point.

How else can one explain a Hillary or Jeb getting all the campaign dough and being the MSM proclaimed front runners.  :icon_scratch:

You  yourself posted a scathing piece on Sheldon Adelson and his power in the corrupt system to favor a candidate with his dough.

There was no smear intended Surly, merely pointing out you suggest the system is corrupted in some postings, and then blame people for voting for the puppets they proclaim to be the candidates. Mr Carlin is deceased, but some of us did vote for the other candidates. The ones the bosses that run the system told us could not win. They were correct, but don't blame me please.

“My aspiration for the country and I believe we can achieve it, is 4 percent growth as far as the eye can see. Which means we have to be a lot more productive, workforce participation has to rise from its all-time modern lows. It means that people need to work longer hours and, through their productivity, gain more income for their families. That's the only way we're going to get out of this rut that we're in.

Molly was from an affluent River Oaks family, but for some reason she was always compelled to speak for the common people. Her years at the the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram were filled with great writing. That paper used to be Texas' best, back when newspapers were newspapers. They once had Blackie Sherrod, Bud Shrake, Gary Cartwright, and Dan Jenkins.

I saw Molly when she guested on Prairie Home Companion here in 2006, just a few months before she died. She was still ragging on G.W. Bush, whom she called "Shrub". Rick Perry was "Good Hair".

She had a great repertoire. She wrote what I regard as the best line ever put to paper regarding Texas politics.

"This is Texas, and here you got to dance with them what brung you."

I was talking of Donald Trumps popularity that seems born of desperation, it being unlikeky anyone really likes him. Kid Rock is quoted saying "can kiss my ass" re the flag but I cant find anywhere saying he has southern pride... i did discover in the controversy he has a half black boy and the meme arises from a failed move to have him removed from a music museum for having used the flag.

 Meanwhile, the Confederate flag flap continues to serve its purpose, which is to set left against right and distract the already scarce attention of most people away from the real issues, like the misnamed "free trade" agreements that will permanently enthrone unelected corporate rulers.  Or the actual, institutionalized racism that continues apace throughout this country, whether one flies a Confederate flag or rolls it up and sticks it up their ass, which is its proper use.

And the FED lent half a trillion to foreign fucking banksters to keep them afloat in SECRET.

It took a law suit from Bloomberg to find out where the dough went.

We should be so lucky Surly.

They send us out now to work for The Man for 50 cents an hour, which goes back to the corporation sheltering and feeding us out of the goodness of their hearts.

Libraries for prisoners isn't considered cost effective anymore, rehabilitation means learning how to work well for low wages nowadays.

Eight bucks an hour seems like a king's ransom if you are lucky enough to work your way out of the can. A worthwhile education indeed.

When the ethics of the bottom line are the only ethics applied to social issues, society exists to serve Mammon. And Mammon is hungry.
So "rehabilitation" is now a discredited concept; all that matters is cheap slave labor for burgeoning markets. Good for the bottom line. Plus, the state has to honor the guarantees exacted at the time the contract was executed.

@G)- did you see the article posted by knarf the other day, about an article from a magazine from the U Chicago Divinity School? I think the author was Bruce Rittenhouse. He addressed issues that I thought went right to the heart of what you have described several times as a sickness of the spirit in American life.

If you didn't see it, I wanted to refer you.

"We've done the hard and patient work" of diplomacy, he added, "instead of chest-beating which rejects the idea of even talking to our adversaries."

As soon as Trayvon comes up and is a crock, you know now you now have to investigate every single one to see if they are as big a lie. Where do you get this propaganda?

Fight back…how funny….beating some poor Peruvians head into the ground and getting shot for it in a perfectly acceptable self defense context, with the full support of a jury, is Zimmerman fighting back for his rights, and nothing to do with assault with intent to harm or kill. Fortunately the country has learned since the days of  Bernie Getz, and now understands that attacks on our persons isn't something we are required to stand around and take. Zimmerman understood it, the jury understood it, now if we can just stop racist behavior against Peruvians in this country, maybe we can avoid the next senseless death of some American who doesn't understand that discriminating against minorities is wrong, and deciding to beat them to death potentially lethal because this is still America, and they are allowed to defend themselves just like everyone else.

Just go investigate your little tits off, Danny.  It will give you something to do with your ever-so-abundant spare time since, given your copious record of posting on the Diner, you clearly have nothing else to do.  It's tough when nobody needs your services, isn't it?

 By all means, run them all down, and find that you are as wrong about all of them is you are about Trayvon, who was murdered in cold blood by a racist sociopath. You know the type: check a mirror.  You already have a track record here about the Japanese and Pearl Harbor, and have been demonstrated abundantly wrong about nearly everything aside from where to drill for hydrocarbons.

Fight back…how funny….beating some poor Peruvians head into the ground and getting shot for it in a perfectly acceptable self defense context, with the full support of a jury, is Zimmerman fighting back for his rights, and nothing to do with assault with intent to harm or kill.

After Zimmerman's acquittal, he has proven himself to be dangerous company both for his former wife and for others, and has demonstrated recklessness with firearms again and again, along with a psychopathic disregard for the rights, feelings, and safety of others. By all means bleat on and on about Zimmerman trying to claw back his rights. I can certainly understand why you would want to make common cause with George fucking Zimmerman. George and Danny Boy: two of a kind.

The politicians are all just pigs at the corporate trough. They do what they're told. But the masses of voters (old people) have to be  skinned, and that's where the shills come in. Don't get excited. I wasn't talking about oil company shills.

The fix was already in.

At the initial hearings, Max Baucus, a Dem Senator from Montana, made sure it was off the table and had those prepared to make a statement in favor of single payer forcibly removed from the hearing room. So an insurance company ratfucking was already baked in.

Don't have a link to point you to, but am confident of the assertion.

Not sure how practical such a rig is except in the kitchen where standing up and down, walking around, getting in and out of the EV isn't of importance, but it looks wildly impractical. Cool…but impractical. Plus you can SEE everything. One of the ways you make sure no one sees you coming is to not be carrying out in the open, the goal is to be unnoticed until you pull the trigger.

Absolutely right if carrying for self protection. But a lot of these Molon Labe types are more about intimidation or making some statement... rather than being effective.

I can't say I care much about "statements" by anyone, being, as I've said before, being one of those "watch what they do, not what they say" types. I even know of a local sheriff who encourages his friends to open carry into particular restaurants, if only so he or his boys can show up to tell the owner they can't stop it from happening, get over their fears, it's the law, he's the sheriff, so lump it.

It seems unreasonable in a free country to stop folks from making statements, the fears of any majority should never stop citizens from exercising their rights, even if they are in the minority (civil rights was the same type of problem), but it just seems stupid to make sure every bad guy in the place knows exactly where to place the first fusillade of bullets to facilitate the accomplishment of their villainous acts.

Good news for the concealed carry folks of course, giving the bad guys a target to focus on, because it becomes just that much more difficult for bad guys to open up their situational awareness to encompass otherwise innocent bystanders clearing leather and opening fire outside their peripheral vision.

A&M is a most excellent school, and it has a esprit de corp that permeates the whole student body. I am not aware of any other school that comes close to having as much real school spirit and where all students  really belong to something. It's a little strange compared to most colleges in that regard.

You truly just have to visit the campus on a game day in football season to get it. I can't really explain it.

In Texas, an A&M class ring opens doors. It's a club, and it's life-long.

UT San Antonio is a second tier state college imho, where the students live in private apartments adjacent to campus, as opposed to dormitories. My son went there for a year. He didn't love it, and I wasn't impressed. The area was rural when the school opened (I used to ride motorcycles through the hills thereabouts when I was in Dental School), a commuter college basically, but the burbs have exploded in that quadrant of SA, and there's a big high end strip mall right next door. It's surrounded by suburban neighborhoods.

I like Texas State much better. Three of my kids will have graduated from TSU as of next Friday, and I like that one a lot. Smaller town, beautiful campus, better school too, imho.

TSU is pretty big for being just another school near Austin. The daughter loves Austin in general. There must be more students in that area than armadillos.

She hasn't mentioned TSU, although I mentioned it to her the last time you said something about it. I'll poke her again, maybe she can substitute that in for a visit instead of UTSA.

What with how fast the world is collapsing and all, she might only have time for a couple college degrees, a family, a career, and a proper death and burial at the age of 105 before everyone notices.  :icon_sunny: :icon_sunny:

I seriously doubt it. I would look to whatever rig is issued to SEALs and whatnot for clearing houses, that would probably make far more sense than just bolting on all sorts of weapons, requiring all sorts of different ammo and magazines. The quantity of firearms carried is meaningless if junior wyatt with a single shot 22LR shoots you in the eye. I've noticed this issue in motorcycle racing, photography, the practical application and use of firearms, most things where money can buy stuff and skill, and people mistake the stuff for evidence of skill.

The ability to just stand still and shoot a target in front of you when they are shooting back strikes me of far more value than every weapon that guy is carrying save one, and that happens to be whichever one he can employ in a calm and thoughtful fashion as someone else is shooting back.

Oh, one other thing about A&M. It's really in the sticks. Not much in Bryan/College Station besides the U.

A lot of kids live in Austin and commute to TSU. It is a little hairy at peak traffic times, however. All my kids did this, although it would have been far simpler for them to live in San Marcos. Austin is a happenin' place for  the twenty-somethings.

Lots of good Texas schools...Rice is small, very urban and elitist. Texas Tech is huge and good, but Lubbock leaves a lot to be desired as a place to live. TCU still gets high marks. SMU has always been known as a rich kids' school.

Sul Ross in Alpine is fairly unique, but isolated, on the edge of the Big Bend country. My alma mater, Stephen F. Austin, is nice, but also in the sticks....

I've drilled wells out in the Austin Chalk before, been through Bryan a few times, little steakhouse in Lyons was still there last time I was through. Made a few calls, most folks have heard of Texas A&M, they call it a great "ring knocker" school for inside of Texas. They had never heard of Texas State, looked it up real quick and said the same thing I did, DAMN it is pretty big for something neither us had ever heard of before.

George Mason is selling itself on new, and being able to get its folk jobs. Hardly a surprise right next to eastern cesspool central.

You assume barbarians would have sacked the US if we'd just stayed home and protected the border? Why? Where's the evidence?

It's basically just been a conduit scheme to make war bucks for the richest 400 famiiles, while the rest of us pay high taxes and get to take trips to places like Viet Nam and Afghanistan.

No evidence? How many times has another country dropped a bomb on your state's capital? How many times have other folks invaded, killed a bunch of folks somewhere nearby, say, like the Alamo, and required a local leader to repel them? How many times has a foreign power blown up a random electrical generation station nearby and left you and your practice in a position to not run your business?

It should be noted that these things happen regularly, except they aren't happening much in America, and the value of being able to fight wars anywhere on the globe or just keeping the peace so that New Zealand doesn't get taken over by China for its dairy products is that YOU and YOURS are highly unlikely to be casualties in the kind of nonsense that infests far more of the world than it ought to.

Darn right you don't see the evidence…and that is because it has worked since before you were born.

Your practice is the proof. Your ability to expect your kids to go to school and not get bombed while in the school bus is the proof. Your ability to buy toys and and not defend your property rights with violence is proof. Your consistent electrical power is the proof, local functioning schools are the proof, your very ability to pretend not to see civil order around you as a consequence of living within the country that has assembled the greatest military power in the history of the species is the proof.

Quote from: Eddie

Perhaps you are unfamiliar with how the world worked, prior to our country becoming what it is today? And the evidence is that it HASN'T happened to you and yours. You think some place like West Berlin just happened because, you know, all they needed to do was defend their borders a little? You mean, like Crimea? Or Kuwait? You remember the Alamo right? A little border defense didn't work out so well once upon a time…and then Texas became American, America became what it is today and you haven't had to worry about the descendants of Santa Anna since then.

Drop a couple flowers off on Chris Kyle's grave the next time you are in Austin proper, it isn't as though those who have dedicated their lives to making sure you could enjoy yours don't deserve a little pat on the back on occasion.

That's not a compelling argument at all. There is no real logic in it.

Why haven't the Swiss been overrun? Or Brazil? Because we protect them? Yeah, right.

It only takes ONE example on my side to make the point, you need the entire world to suddenly become peaceful and happy without a single expansionist bone in their bodies.

And that isn't the world, therefore you can't have your Isolationist-topia, but you can have the lifestyle you have enjoyed BECAUSE someone has always been there to protect you during your lifetime.

Don't get me wrong, I am probably just as isolationist in my tendencies as you are, but apparently far more grounded in how people treat each other and react when one of them begins to covet.

While it might be acceptable to you personally, for South Korea, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and us to be subjected to random violence and/or subjugation that isn't in your neighborhood today, sitting around with one's thumb up ones ass has never struck me as a particularly effective defensive posture. Of course, some of us have seen honest villainy before, up close and personal, and taken personal responsibility for our freedom and safety.

It is easy to wait until the barbarians are at the gate to react to the imminent removal of every lifestyle advantage you have enjoyed in your life, but then it is usually too late. So if various defensive arrangements are what folks think is okay to make sure they can enjoy the kind of lifestyle you have, well, it makes perfect sense to me, and probably those others who live much closer to such villainy, or have seen it recently.

Bankruptcy isn't measured in barrels, tons of coal or standard cubic feet of natural gas. But no, it wasn't a thousand year supply because obviously we are using it faster than that, and this was a collective decision, and even better the amounts remaining are easily quantified as "abundant". Good thing too, because the transition has only been going on for what, like a quarter century now? And only recently has the pace begun to pick up enough to be notable ( go EV!!).

You are referring to Israel and Swiss models of homeland defense. And it doesn't include just able bodied men. Certainly for Israel it makes perfect sense, as they are on the forefront of others with the stated purpose of wiping them off the map, whereas folks just don't like us much because of the 800# gorilla effect. Other countries can plan and scheme and debate and perhaps even successfully do something bad to their neighbors, but you pick the wrong neighbor, and suddenly the 82nd Airborne is sitting there just DARING you to move another foot…and for obvious reasons, you don't. THAT is why they don't like us, because of all the countries in the world, we are about the only ones who can do that anywhere on the globe, and the results are nearly guaranteed to be a bad day for your self esteem.

I never said we would be easy to take over. Only that Eddie can't necessarily have his lifestyle, its level or consistency, if he had to worry about the same kind of random violence or interference from other countries that we commonly inflict on them, because they CAN'T provide the level of security that the US does Eddie.

The Israeli's are perhaps the best example, and most appreciative, of the entire "if you want peace, you had better prepare for war" concept, and it shows in their war making business model, it being closer to the one you've described. Can't blame them, one solid Arab army and the country is only like 20 miles wide at some spots. An army could walk that in a day, against the wishes of the sort of lightly armed bobbies that Eddie might like to see patrolling Americas borders. The entire difference being an entire populace ready to push back of course. Yeah, the Jews get it, and aren't going to forget anytime soon, thanks to the Germans. Eddie has nothing to compare that to, hell no one in America really does. Our oceans and generally friendly, and militarily impotent, neighbors, make sure of that.

Matt, one of the problems with the kind of comment you posted is that terms like "liberalism" have been perverted to the point of meaninglessness. I'm not even sure which liberalism you're talking about.

Because this liberalism here, as defined below, is pretty much the underlying thought behind the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights.

(from Wiki)


Liberalism is a political philosophy or worldview founded on ideas of liberty and equality. The former principle is stressed in classical liberalism while the latter is more evident in social liberalism. Liberals espouse a wide array of views depending on their understanding of these principles, but generally they support ideas and programs such as freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, free markets, civil rights, democratic societies, secular governments, and international cooperation.

Liberalism first became a distinct political movement during the Age of Enlightenment, when it became popular among philosophers and economists in the Western world. Liberalism rejected the notions, common at the time, of hereditary privilege, state religion, absolute monarchy, and the Divine Right of Kings. The 17th-century philosopher John Locke is often credited with founding liberalism as a distinct philosophical tradition. Locke argued that each man has a natural right to life, liberty and property,[11] while adding that governments must not violate these rights based on the social contract. Liberals opposed traditional conservatism and sought to replace absolutism in government with representative democracy and the rule of law.


And then we have what goes by the name of neo-liberalism...which is a completely different animal, more along the lines of the bullshit being peddled by the current crop of neo-con presidential candidates.

(from Wiki)

Neoliberalism is a term whose usage and definition have changed over time. Since the 1980s, the term has been used by scholars and critics primarily in reference to the resurgence of 19th century ideas associated with laissez-faire economic liberalism. Beginning in the 1970s and 1980s, its advocates supported extensive economic liberalization policies such as privatization, fiscal austerity, deregulation, free trade, and reductions in government spending in order to enhance the role of the private sector in the economy. Neoliberalism is famously associated with the economic policies introduced by Margaret Thatcher in the United Kingdom and Ronald Reagan in the United States. The transition of consensus towards neoliberal policies and the acceptance of neoliberal economic theories in the 1970s are seen by some academics as the root of financialization, with the financial crisis of 2007–08 one of the ultimate results.


Then you have what I refer to as Rush Limbaugh liberalism, which means (as best I can figure) any social welfare program supported by any Democrat. I'm guessing this is the "liberalism" you meant.

Most of us here understand that the hatred being stirred up against that kind of liberalism is mostly a smoke-screen. Something to perpetuate the existing two-party dichotomy, which is a false dichotomy that divides Americans and makes them easier to control. In practice, there isn't much difference between liberals and conservatives in the congress. They're all captured by the big money interests.

There are plenty of sites where you can go to bash Obama and play the blame game, but this isn't really the place for it, nor is it the place for trolling good guys like Surly who spend a significant amount of their energy every day trying to educate people about the truth of our current situation vis a vis collapse, climate change, population overshoot, globalism, corporatism and all the other real problems in the world.

If you can write in complete sentences and string coherent thoughts together into full paragraphs that make a case for your POV, I think that would be okay, even if your in disagreement with everyone here. Say your piece. This is an open forum. But if that last post is where you're headed with your comments, please find some other place to troll.

Americans Against The Republican Party are complaining that unemployment is as high as it was in 1965 when they say you could walk into any factory and get hired right away. The widening wealth gap is really no worse than 1965 but was worse before that in the 50s and early 60s consumer driven postwar boom. That could only makes sense if you can believe hillary deleted thirty thousand emails containing nothing but wedding plans and yoga routines.

So NOW you are willing to accept well-roasted, fully-cooked government employment figures?

"The widening wealth gap is really no worse than 1965 but was worse before that in the 50s and early 60s consumer driven postwar boom."
Wrong, wrong, wrong. Not in this country. Those years corresponded to a highest tax bracket of 92 per cent and the greatest boom in working class standard of living in American history. The wealth gap has been exacerbated since 2008 with ALL productivity gains accruing to the.01 percent. 1950-70 were well and truly the good old days in this country.

A kid graduating high school and NOT going on to college could walk into a factory and get a job. If he screwed up, he could go get another. In five years, he'd have a car, a house, and maybe a family. Nowadays the factories are in the Pacific Rim, and the kind gets to compete with others for a McJob with fast food wages. In five years he'll have the seven roommates he started with.

You should be embarrased showing up here with such an assertion. You've just pissed yourself.

Put down the glass pipe, Bob. You're addled.

Actually you ignore the point i said that u can only believe that which i paraphrased  if u believe hillary deleted thirty thousand yoga emails. Thats what Americans Against The Republican Party would have us believe. I dont believe unemployment or corporate profit/inequality was as high 50 years ago in 1965 as now. Nick Hannuer obviously pulled those figures out of the air because they sounded good without pausing to think what they mean and neither did you.

The source AATRP meaning they are for the opposition also want us to believe a war on men is really a war on women (compare the bodycount). Thats the cause now, they dont do anything against corporate profit and workers treatment as the meme suggests. They recognise climate change and have slightly better environmental credentials is the only positive i see,  counterbalanced by their most recognisable and defining cause promoting transgender and radical feminism. My testicles are part of what they call 'toxic masculinity' that can still call a spayed a spayed.

The scourge of my youth polio. My mother would not let us out of the house. We couldn't go swimming or near a pond or lake. I still won't let a dog or cat come near me. My mother caught me patting a dog on the way home from school, and my father beat the living shit out of me for going near dogs and cats and disobeying her.

I still remember getting my polio shot in school. The nun used me as an example to the other kids of how it would only hurt for a second, we were petrified back then, shots were given with huge needles compared to today.

When Dr Salk died, a man that saved the lives of billions with his work, it was a minor headline in the page 2 section of the newspapers. I got into a major fight with an ass hole over that fact, I was bemoaning the fact that Dr Salk deserved full heading and a presidential eulogy, like their ass hole sports figures and silly little pop star strumpets. Who gives a fuck about a Dr Salk, he said to me, Pro Sports and Movies and TV are where the smart people who know how to make money go, he scoffed and laughed at me.

I have outgrown getting pissed off at such people, they are actually the majority now. I live in a neighborhood where all the soccer moms are trying to turn their little Johnny into the next Tom Brady, it just turns my fucking stomach to watch them and listen to their idiocy.

More than anything else, I am a Doomer because of the distortion of values and sick dumbed down imbeciles we have become.

Can you believe the governor of Massachusetts wanted to fly the state flag at half mast for a week when Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead died. That's no shit, it is a fact.  :icon_scratch:

If Libertarians are scoffed at as fools, I would suggest it is for other reasons than their anti-war stance. A significant number of libertarian-tinged conservatives are chickenhawks, BTW, willing to fight the next war down to your last grandchild. (The Pauls being significant exceptions.)
To the extent they are represented by the so-called "Freedom caucus" in the House, and the Tea Party, libertarians get a hard time of it because so many go off the deep end.

It makes you an American that has been so protected by your countries successful war making ability that you are disconnected from what it took to achieve it. Nothing wrong with this of course, it is a consequence of American exceptionalism in this arena.

People don't have high taxes if they don't make much money Eddie, so your perspective is that of the burdened business owner who dares to succeed and profit. Economically understandable that you resent having to cover for the mooches of the country, but that is the way of it. Some mooch, and your success pays for it. Give yourself a pat in the back for being one, rather than the other, and move along to your next vacation, car, home or expenditure of discretionary income that thank GOD they aren't handing out to moochers yet, because when they do, it'll come from your success as well.

Moochers don't care about your kids. And the ones I've seen, they don't care much about their own kids either. But cigarettes and beer, now you're talking! As far as the military, well, that can certainly be less expensive. But as close as you are to a foreign border, and considering what happened when Santa Anna came through last time, there is some level of protection even you would find worth paying for, based on what is happening back among Santa Anna's ancestors.

(Which is what I think of when GO talks about libertarianism- the small government, pro-personal liberty antiwar contingent. I admire Justin Raimondo's body of work.) The problem is those folks have no chance of getting elected (check rand Paul's inability to get much traction), and the conservatives who HAVE managed to get elected are those who want nothing more than to enforce Big Government's coercive abilities to prosecute their particular preferences.

Of course.

The Military has ALWAYS been a "jobs program", since before the time of the Roman Empire.

On an Economic level, the problem comes when the military can no longer steal enough resources from others to support itself.  If the resources aren't there to steal, it becomes an uneconomic enterprise.

Think about the sheer idiocy of that kind of statement. Are you a taxpayer?

The military is a jobs program, true. A job program that puts twenty cents of every dollar the government spends on goods and services that add nothing to the quality of the life of the citizens. It uses borrowed money raised from bonds  that used to be bought by our biggest potential enemy (China) but are now raised out of money printing at the Fed, since no other country needs or wants to hold our debt.

Some of the jobs go to soldiers, sailors and airmen, a percentage of whom end up as medical basket cases that require lifetime government spending to keep alive after their service. The lucky recipients of those jobs who end up like that, unfortunately, can't ever work a real job that produces something we can actually use, ever again.

So we lose their labor, but have to support them.

The other lucky jobs recipients, the ones who make the planes and ships (and don't forget the missiles, bombs, rifles, ammunition, uniforms, shoes and all the other stuff that gets used to blow up foreigners and occupy their countries) are using their labor to make shit that either kills people, ends up as army surplus, or gets thrown away. Sure they get paid. But it's a misuse of precious money  (not to mention commodities) that we could just as easily be paying to build bridges, canals, railroads and a lot of other things we actually do need but can no longer afford....because we've borrowed all the money we spent on this jobs program...and it takes 15 cents of every tax dollar just to service the debt now, and will cost MUCH more if interest rates ever go up.

If that's any kind of jobs program then I'm Mother Theresa. What a joke.

I understand that you HATE the idea that a military is needed, but it is, and you get to enjoy your lifestyle because you don't live somewhere that doesn't have one, and suffers the obvious consequences of it.

Come on Eddie, be honest, you don't get to preach against something honestly without recognizing that you are only in a position to preach because of the advantage it has provided you.

Quote from: Eddie

Would you prefer to donate your time, and possibly life, and your kid's time, and possibly their lives, instead?

That would be a system analogous to being Israeli. Pick your druthers, but unless you want to be doing dentistry in the likes of Gaza, you do have to make a choice. Americans have made one, and last I looked, you wuz one of us.

Quote from: Eddie

It would be nice if there were enough dentistry practices with a need for assistants to pay a 6 figure salary, but it is unlikely you as a small businessman can fill the gap. How many less highly paid folks could you take on, the combination of which would provide you more benefit than just the one, and therefore increase your efficiency in terms of man hours so that you could begin to absorb some of these folks who can't find work elsewhere? Do you have a dentistry training program for felons or drug users perhaps? Certainly it would be nice to solve that problem from a labor force perspective.

Besides, your assumption, that we would be a war zone if we didn't spend so much on the military, is completely bogus and without logical support of any kind.

I suggest you look and see which countries in the world spend a similar percentage of their GDP on the military as we do, as see what safe, civilized places they are. The truth is that, in general, the more of its resources a country spends on the military, the more likely they are to have bombs falling and missiles flying through the local air space.

One man's too much is another man's just right.

Quote from: Eddie
I'd be happy to spend the same percentage of our GDP on the military as say...Iceland.

I would be happy to spend as much money on our military as it takes to generate RESULTS. Me being a results driven kind of guy, what with my entire line having been built on generating them. And wishing others would do the same, instead of confusing trying and attempting and planning with them.

Quote from: Eddie
Besides, your assumption, that we would be a war zone if we didn't spend so much on the military, is completely bogus and without logical support of any kind.

I understand the logic might not be easy to follow. But you aren't so far from the Alamo as to not understand. America was once a different place, and there is enough of that history near you that it is impossible to ignore.

Quote from: Eddie
I suggest you look and see which countries in the world spend a similar percentage of their GDP on the military as we do, as see what safe, civilized places they are. The truth is that, in general, the more of its resources a country spends on the military, the more likely they are to have bombs falling and missiles flying through the local air space.

Countries can spend less on their defense because many of them are allies, and in some cases LIVE under the same American security blanket that makes certain that you live under the rule of American law, rather than Napoleonic.

Talking your current book, MKing  ;D

Don't worry about the children, it's fiat debt you see, and will be paid for with inflation.

Just wait to you see what your wonderful, smart, highly educated kids who were fortunate enough to have a very smart dad, earn in the future. Believe me, you will feel as if you worked for nothing.

Gold bugs like to tell the story of what a Penny was worth way back. What a big gorgeous copper coin. They has so much buying power back then that they had to come out with  1/2 cent coin for change.

But you don't wish to hear about that nonsense. You believe in bankster paper, and Satan himself as being an OK guy, as posted recently.

I don't do stocks GO. I do market tracking funds. And yes, those I MOSTLY jumped out of, using only ongoing investment in now emptied tracking funds to at least keep a finger in some measure of upside. But what is a 20% gain on a couple thousand dollars, right? It is nothing compared to a 20% gain on mid 6 figures. But yes, I am as out as I get.

Market closed at 16,300 or so on Friday. I jumped out when it was "crashing", at 16,450 I believe.

Gee....what a terrible collapse!! Remember all the hysteria back in August? Now you see why it gets old after awhile, those screaming collapse without doing their own betting on it, they don't even believe their own press, and the objective analytic is why.

I believe all sorts of things GO, and still have gold that I haven't made any real gains on yet. I'll let you know when I do, but it isn't looking likely. Now, within your 4000 year timespan sure, maybe gold will be meaningful. But none of us have that long GO, including you.

There is a saying that those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.

Every great country in the last five hundred years has gone bankrupt using borrowed money to bankroll military expansion. That's the result you're getting.

I say those who fail freshman history should have to repeat it in summer school with Dean Wormer.

I know. I quote it at you all the time when you hope for a different result from some idea or another that has already been discredited by history, reality, precedent, etc etc.

Could be. And really, we could discuss how countries of the world are ALREADY bankrupt, for all sorts of reasons, including our own. But here is the thing, even after England ceased being a world power, they didn't collapse. Germany and Japan collapsed because they did the military thing poorly, as opposed to going bankrupt doing it.

So who would we rather be after the dust settles, living like the Brits or suffering through the decade or two it took Germany and Japan to recover, even with our HELP?

I wonder what they would have looked like if we had decided to be cheap, right about then? In either case, there is an argument to be made that 'tis better to stop being a world power as a consequence of collapse, rather than getting your ass kicked because you couldn't be bothered to borrow enough to do it right in the first place.

I doubt history lessons are of much value to those with belief systems, whereby they manufacture some cool scenario, and then can only see it as a result. Peak oilers and some collapse advocates being perfect examples of this phenomena.

We've already kicked our own ass. The people who founded this country worried that it'd come to this, and that's why they tried to prevent it by making standing armies illegal. But we managed to get around the Constitution. A thousand years worth of precious natural resources flushed down the toilet in our generation so a few power hungry people could play war games. We won't be getting those wasted resources back.

I know. I quote it at you all the time when you hope for a different result from some idea or another that has already been discredited by history, reality, precedent, etc etc.

I don't predict the future.  I just talk and write about what I see happening in real time, and try to weigh the odds of various scenarios. I try to be ready for just about anything, because there are so many ways we can get screwed now.

Your "everything is fine and nothing will crash" scenario is one I'm okay with. Unfortunately, it does not appear to be the correct one. The world keeps getting more and more fragile, and more and more people keep getting born who can't feed themselves, and most of us keep having to work harder just to stay even.

You don't think the economy might be better if we hadn't spent 6 Trillion dollars in just Iraq and Afghanistan in the past ten years? Really?

By any comparison that includes Dresden and Hiroshima, nah, not even close.

The Constitution has changed, as it was meant to. I don't recall the word "privacy" even being in there, but we sure developed it as a right somehow, and most folks would be pretty unhappy with a reinterpretation at this point. Same with slavery I imagine.

So change cuts both ways, and "precious" is just as relative a term. So is "war games" when they include actual "war", the point of which is to allow you to continue happily dentistrying along, putting your kids through college, buying toys and spare houses. A bit difficult to do if you were being treated the same as the weak of our world.

Sure, we see things happening in real time. And then I go back and list the other times it happened as well, except usually worse, and then what is that called? Having not learned from history.

I have never said everything is fine, and I have never said nothing will crash. As a scientist I don't tend to deal in absolutes to begin with, and specialize professionally in probability and its measures as a matter of course. I don't tend to bring them up around here for several reasons, 1) most folks are confused when you provide a probability density function as an answer and B) it immediately brings issues related to the Dunning-Kruger effect into play, and C) this ain't a national conference or professional chit-chat session, it is a blog where we all sit around with beers in our hand and shoot the shit.

I didn't pull back from the market because "everything is fine", I don't keep the weapon given to mankind from God within arm's reach because "nothing will crash", I accept that one man's crash is another man's buying opportunity, if in fact one is happening and you are telling the truth about your real estate based response.

Quote from: Eddie

I think my pocketbook might be better because GovCo would have thieved less taxes out of it if they hadn't been fighting overseas, as compared to waiting for them to bring the mess here. Again. The economy? Not necessarily, let us not forget that the 2008 crash wasn't because the banks would lend to any idiot out there, they were able to do it because there was an unlimited supply of idiots without jobs or money who thought their real estate was an ATM machine. The classic "do you jump off the bridge if your friends do?" question from our mothers, where everyone is busy answering YES!!

Have told you often that you are confusing my lifespan with gold's bull market against all fiat. They are separate items.

Sorry you weren't smart enough to buy gold when it was down and scorned in Dollar terms, purchasing when Gold Fever is raging is not the time for optimum bargain prices.  Learn to think and act independent of crowds and you will no doubt be more successful in your endeavors.

As noted by many, finance is hardly your strong suit, so playing market roulette with your tracking funds is probably a good idea for a novice like yourself. Thank goodness for you punters it can only move in two directions, you will get it right sooner or later, trust me.

Selling all your mutual funds or selling all your stocks are the same thing as well MKing, so kindly stop talking nonsense, at least to me.

Of course, explaining to you again that gold is not an investment would be a waste of my time.

I am aware of that. And your 4000 year cycle for gold to beat fiat. And your lifespan, and mine, and everyone you know, being irrelevant in that kind of cycle. Which makes it possible for someone to find gold pretty valueless in terms of generating return across one of those generations, if not 199 generations apparently.

I bought gold when know it all gold bugs told everyone it was needed as a hedge against inflation. They didn't mention it to a newbie like me that it required 4000 years before it would work that way.

What I WAS smart enough to do was to apply the law of holes, learn how and why gold didn't hold up as a hedge against inflation worth dick, and activated an alternative plan that did fantastically well. Three cheers for fiat, and the lesson of its value taught to me by gold bugs!

Agreed. Plus my simplistic methods have the advantage of whupping it up all over gold, and if there is one thing I am known for, it is delivering, and by extension EXPECTING, results. Fiat certainly delivers those, whereas the gold…well…as you know, the kids will be happy when I die because my failed investment will be their windfall.

At least you are wise enough to realize the long term potential of your Golden hedge. It's encouraging.

Your desire for instant gratification after your purchase is quite common actually, it is the mode of the sick gamblers that dare call themselves investors in the corrupt casino called markets these days. I commend you in your Holding On, and not taking that loss and gambling with the proceeds elsewhere.

That also gives me confidence in my view that you know that Gold is something special and not to be discarded, except by the dim.

ALEC is the acronym for American Legislative Exchange Council, a group of lobbyists representing the banking, insurance, pharmaceutical, telecommunication, energy, and other major corporate concerns. They write "recommendations" for new laws and pass them on to the legislators, who often don't even bother to change the wording of these "recommendations" before sponsoring them as bills for approval. And let's not forget the Supreme Court and their obscenely pro-corporate decisions, i.e "Citizen's United", granting corporations "personhood."

Feel very lucky that Joaquin tracking east, but I won't be opening the champagne until it's over. I have seen forecasts that call for 13+ inches in the Carolinas tomorrow.

Break out the Galoshes.  :icon_sunny:

We have dodged a bullet. Not out of the woods, but the eastward track of Joaquin has spared us what would have doubtless been serious flooding and misery.

This is a lucky bit of weather business for us. Now where I live, I consult the tidal tables like others consult the Bible. Times like this, you have to plan your travel according to the tides. Some streets around where I live are now impassible as high tide approaches. And it isn't raining, and we have been spared the worst of Joaquin.

Meanwhile, those poor bastards in the carolinas are getting clobbered by a non-Joaquin-related rain event:

None. America is the only country on the planet that can ignore 2nd rate powers like Russia and its fearless leader. American exceptionalism is just the beginning, we've got more and better nukes, a far bigger and bad ass (and well practiced) military equipped far better than Russia can manage (poor bastards can barely get a ship to show up in a foreign port in the America's let alone run year round operations like the US can in the Eastern Hemisphere), a larger economy that isn't a one trick resource based one run by cronies of the ruling leaders, we are the worlds largest energy producer (energy isn't just about oil people) and consumer, I mean really, the rest of the world has to be worried about the guy, I mean really, he controls Europe's natural gas supplies!! They better pay attention to him, they handed over their future to Russia because these ball less wonders can't decide to do something about it!

So yeah, America doesn't need to give much of a shit because Russia ain't what it used to be, and doesn't look to climb back into the saddle any time soon. College sports probably make more money than the entire Russian economy, so you are darn right they matter more than Russia, let everyone else sweat him, we don't have to.

China who kicked your ass in korea and vietnam already surpassed your economy last  year so update your info. Russia has about a quarter the debt to gdp of usa and in 1 week did in syria what your high heel and pregnancy simulator wearing army failed to do in over a year. Any coincidence i heard on the news today  u r giving up on training proxies there? think its an accident the F22 and F35 are useless and all the other weapons  are made with chinese software they can probably hack? Hows it feel to take a fall for the bankers who sell u up the river  when theyve finished with u?

To add to your points an army need not be as strong as its rival to cause problems. It merely needs to be sufficiently strong that if the attacking party declared war it would suffer enough losses to make conflict a bad idea. Let's remember a lot of an army's strength rests on its reputation and if its marque assets such as aircraft carriers or advanced fighter jets come down then the aura of invincibility will go opening them to more challenging and costly encounters in future conflicts. One thing I would say though is while the F22 is very overpriced and may not be as good value for money as other fighter jets it is a good jet. The F35 does seem to be a dozy if the reports about it are true but then the US army is as much to do about making certain people rich rather than building a stronger army.

This is the result of changes to federal tax laws and other policies and regulations started under the regime of St. Reagan. It is not the result of a small group of vastly superior super humans, no matter how much, how loud or how often conscience-free sociopaths tell you otherwise.

Those changes can be reversed if the rest of us find the will to do it.

But how, vote sanders? Seems  he has  as much chance of the nomination as RP last time. I saw brief highlights of the debate the media claimed Hillary clearly won, her eyes darted around like she was in REM sleep. So how for a start will you reform the system to ensure sanders gets the nomination so u can vote for him, if he was really the most popular peoples choice?

Then theres the question of if declining standard of living is relateded to limits to growth,  the question of if restoring wage rises could be done and pay off national debt. It would be great if it was possible to put your grandparent or parent in a nursing home and still be able to save up and spend something on yourself as im sure they could in 1979. Today aged care for an elder is 600 a week, and i dont think theres any way to wind back the clock.

What is "it"?

The charts above, the timeframe chosen to demonstrate the change ending in the Carter administration, not Reagan's, are as much related to the end of the US as primarily a manufacturing economy, and more of a advanced products, services and financial one. The transition point happens as the boomers were coming of age, and giving us SUVs, crashing gold prices, credit default swaps, clever market mechanisms to enrich themselves at the expense of others.

By the 90's this was then leading to the need for 2 income families, as this generation of Americans became more adept at siphoning away as much of the lifeblood of future generations as possible, ultimately leading to the mess we are in today, when the cash is gone, the credit is gone, we've borrowed against our children's future to give the boomers everything they've ever wanted, and along the way managed to remove all ideas of working for a living, an honest days work for an honest days pay (honest in their eyes now just not being a sucker, and helping them fleece others0, children knowing anything about personal responsibility as opposed to where to put the next tattoo....certainly things change starting in the Carter administration, and the American people were pretty smart in recognizing what a horrible idea it was for him to be President.

It is probably just coincidental that in the doomersphere he is known for being the one calling for the end of oil during the 80's, pretending that we were running out of natural gas and advocating the use of coal everywhere, for everything, and passing laws to codify such ignorance, and passing the windfall profits tax to punish those who back then, and now, are one of the only industries capable of creating value, and providing the kind of jobs that Americans' could once look forward to when they graduated school. Except now, those jobs went wanting during the recent boom because there are more of those jobs then there are Americans with the gumption to take them on.

Starting from the Carter years, the country certainly has changed. But I think we need to place the blame where it belongs.

My feeling is both you gents are blaming our current situation on singular people. Nothing could be further from the truth in my opinion.

There are three branches to our government, and a supposed system of checks and balances. Hundreds if not thousands of ass licking sycophants are responsible for our current plight, jellyfish that didn't have the backbone or courage to do what is right and take the trust and responsibility placed with them seriously. We may have become a dictatorship, but we weren't when all this rot came to infect us.

Singular people, our Presidents, are hardly the only ones to point your fingers at, it takes much more than one official elected every four years to corrupt a nation as great as America with over 300 million citizens.

The leaders in  representative democracy always get tagged with the crap that happens on their watch. But I agree with you, the actions all of these folks ALLOWED, and the behavior they encouraged, what the voters did in response, all of that combined together arrived us where we are today.

The leading party candidates are a doormat pretending to be a democrat, and a democrat pretending to be a republican. With a doctor in there just to liven the joint up.

Never a better example of America getting what it deserves.

Amusing as all hell to find defenders of the philosophy that has driven this country into the ground hiding out with happy go lucky hipster doomsters though.

I think we can equally point our figures at the relatives of doormats, those specializing in wealth redistribution as a means to hide their deficiencies in understanding business and economics, and the morally corrupt. Which is certainly more than the leaders of the party that defines these characteristics.

Oh, by all means, let's unpack "no shame," you plutocrat scoundrel.

Who else unleashed similar ad hom attacks three years ago when this intelligent young woman had the guts to testify?

Misinformer Of The Year: Rush Limbaugh (http://mediamatters.org/blog/2012/12/20/misinformer-of-the-year-rush-limbaugh/191906)

"Slut." "Prostitute." 

These words defined Rush Limbaugh in 2012 after he smeared Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown law student who testified before Congress about women's health care. Limbaugh's misogynistic attack, which spanned three days of his radio show, did incalculable, long-term damage not only to Limbaugh's brand, but also to the right-wing talk-radio format he helped to build and the conservative movement he has shaped for decades.

Limbaugh's attacks on Fluke led to a paradigm shift in talk radio, as advertisers reassessed their support for inflammatory hosts. Limbaugh's toxic rhetoric helped shine a glaring spotlight on the broader conservative movement's policies toward women, focusing public attention on the radical right-wing effort to dismantle reproductive rights and the social safety net.

Limbaugh's unique brand of misinformation was not limited to sexist rhetoric. Throughout 2012, Limbaugh was an architect of the right-wing bubble that pushed conspiracy theories and denied reality, notably helping to create a false narrative that Mitt Romney was on the verge of winning a landslide election. As that right-wing bubble collapsed, so, too, did Limbaugh's four-year campaign of hoping - and trying to ensure - that President Obama would fail.  

It is for these reasons that Media Matters recognizes Rush Limbaugh as the 2012 Misinformer of the Year. Past recipients include: Rupert Murdoch and News Corp. (2011); Sarah Palin (2010); Glenn Beck (2009); and Sean Hannity (2008).

Attacks On Sandra Fluke

Fluke_View

On February 23, 2012, Sandra Fluke testified before a congressional panel about women's health care and the benefits of insurance coverage for contraceptive care. During her testimony, she spoke about a woman who needed birth control pills to treat a medical condition, but who was denied coverage by her insurance company and couldn't afford the medication.

On February 29, Limbaugh began a series of attacks on Fluke, pointing to her testimony and calling her a "slut" and a "prostitute." In a complete distortion of Fluke's actual testimony that was shocking in its ignorance, Limbaugh claimed that she was essentially asking to be "paid to have sex":

LIMBAUGH: What does it say about the college coed Susan Fluke [sic], who goes before a congressional committee and essentially says that she must be paid to have sex? What does that make her? It makes her a slut, right? It makes her a prostitute. She wants to be paid to have sex.

She's having so much sex she can't afford the contraception. She wants you and me and the taxpayers to pay her to have sex.

Limbaugh continued his screed against Fluke the next day, saying: "If we are going to pay for your contraceptives, and thus pay for you to have sex, we want something for it. And I'll tell you what it is. We want you to post the videos online so we can all watch." Over the course of the March 1 and March 2 editions of his radio show, Limbaugh spent nearly six hours directing a hate-filled tirade at Fluke, saying that she was "having so much sex it's amazing she can walk," saying that she had boyfriends "lined up around the block," and saying that Fluke admitted she was "having so much sex that she can't pay for it."

Limbaugh's sexist tirade quickly found support throughout the right-wing echo chamber. CNN contributor Erick Erickson wrote on his blog, RedState, that Fluke "really believes that American tax payers should ... pay for her birth control pills so she can have sex." Conservative talk radio host Dana Loesch wrote on Breitbart.com that Fluke was "testifying that she simply cannot stop getting it on and her inability to control her urges constitutes infringing upon everyone else for a bailout." Fox News Radio reporter Todd Starnes posted more than a dozen comments on Twitter supporting Limbaugh's attacks. Blog posts at National Review Online, Hot Air, and NewsBusters also defended Limbaugh's points.

But outside the right-wing media bubble, Limbaugh was savaged from a variety of sources. Republican and Democratic congressional leaders as well as commentators from the left, right, and center all offered criticism for what Sen. John McCain called comments that were "unacceptable in every way."

Limbaugh was quickly forced to offer an apology, if an inadequate one. But the damage was already done.

Backlash: The Rush From Limbaugh

Limbaugh_Beck

Under heavy criticism, Limbaugh posted a statement to his website on Saturday, March 3, addressing the controversy: "I sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for the insulting word choices." Limbaugh opened his next radio show by explaining his decision to apologize:

I don't expect -- and I know you don't, either -- morality or intellectual honesty from the left.  They've demonstrated over and over a willingness to say or do anything to advance their agenda.  It's what they do.  It's what we fight against here every day. But this is the mistake I made. In fighting them on this issue last week, I became like them.

Against my own instincts, against my own knowledge, against everything I know to be right and wrong, I descended to their level when I used those two words to describe Sandra Fluke. That was my error. I became like them, and I feel very badly about that. I've always tried to maintain a very high degree of integrity and independence on this program. Nevertheless, those two words were inappropriate. They were uncalled for. They distracted from the point that I was trying to make, and I again sincerely apologize to Ms. Fluke for using those two words to describe her.

But Limbaugh's attack was not limited to "two words." He launched 46 personal attacks on Fluke over the course of three days. Many media and political figures agreed that Limbaugh's apology could never make up for the outrageous nature of his attacks. 

But the real damage was only beginning. On March 2, Carbonite CEO David Friend issued a statement saying that he was "offended and very concerned" about Limbaugh's comments. Friend's statement was notable because it came from a key sponsor of Limbaugh's show. And his reaction to Limbaugh's apology the next day helped set in motion a chain of events that continues to reverberate throughout the radio industry:

No one with daughters the age of Sandra Fluke, and I have two, could possibly abide the insult and abuse heaped upon this courageous and well-intentioned young lady. Mr. Limbaugh, with his highly personal attacks on Miss Fluke, overstepped any reasonable bounds of decency. Even though Mr. Limbaugh has now issued an apology, we have decided to withdraw our advertising from his show.

Carbonite was not alone. Advertisers began fleeing Limbaugh's show on March 2. By early April, more than 60 companies had publicly announced that they would no longer advertise on Limbaugh's program. Entertainment news website Deadline reported on March 30 that "sponsors considered him so radioactive that Premiere ordered about 600 stations that carry his show to suspend national barter spots for two weeks." Soon after the advertiser exodus began, veteran radio and advertising journalists suggested that Limbaugh had created a long-term problem for his show.

The damage created by Limbaugh's comments spread throughout the industry. Major companies asked Limbaugh's syndicator, Premiere Radio Networks, to avoid placing their ads on radio shows with content "deemed to be offensive or controversial." A March 9 memo to traffic managers specifically identified Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck, and Michael Savage as hosts with programs now considered too toxic for major advertisers. At the same time he was losing advertisers, Limbaugh also began losing radio affiliates.

While Limbaugh began publicly denying that his show was suffering from the loss of advertisers, privately he was going into crisis management mode. The New York Times reported in March that he hired a reputation and crisis manager. And while Limbaugh was bragging about his ratings on the air, Politico reported in May that his show "took a significant radio hit in some key radio markets" in the wake of his Sandra Fluke attacks.

Limbaugh's partners were soon losing millions of dollars as a result of the loss of advertisers. The New York Times reported that less than two weeks after his attack on Fluke, Premiere Radio Networks had lost nearly $2 million in advertising revenue. In May, Limbaugh affiliate Cumulus Media reported losing several million dollars in revenue over two quarters. In August, Cumulus suggested it had lost more than $5 million on its top three radio stations alone due to factors related to the Limbaugh advertiser boycott.

As Daily Beast columnist John Avlon noted: "Rush Limbaugh made the right-wing talk-radio industry, and he just might break it."

At the same time Limbaugh came under fire for his slut-shaming campaign against Sandra Fluke, it became impossible to separate his misogynistic comments from a larger critique of the conservative movement.

He's another useless excuse for the elites.

Spare me.

Rush launched an unnecessary ad hom sexist attack on Fluke, it blew up on his face, and he blamed liberals.

Wait... that sounds familiar. Know anybody here that does that?

Those two dont elicit much wider sympathy imo, much better to use people who look genuinely poor and want more opportunity. A few tatoos is one thing, but I see the hand and neck of those two and imagine tens of thousands of discretionary dollars spent on tats that are way too much. Permanently destroying your ear  with a two inch diameter 'stretchy' or the bright coloured hair also adds to the impression they want to be unemployable outside stupidity studies depts. A good cause let down by putting the wrong faces forward.

Pictured: Jon Ritzheimer, the anti-Muslim reich-wing bigot militia member, who organized a white-trashy “draw Muhammad" cartoon contest, and is currently occupying a federal building at a bird sanctuary in Oregon, with other unsavory characters. But they're white, gun carrying, reich wing republican supporters and voters, just like the police and military forces, so it's all good.

This meme is not 100% accurate. His wife works, so he also lives off her check, to help pay for his guns and toys and little trips and stuff.

Surly1,

I suspect your graphic would capture more information if it showed the 0.1% as well.  For me I'd like to know how the income level/assets bins break down.  It occurs to me that almost any graphic can't help but present a distorted view and I do not mean your graphic is deceptive at all.  The very act of binning data for any graphic represents loss of information.  As humans I suspect we naturally assume that the formula for producing graphical data is correct and without reproach.

A kind of alien mind syndrome.

Anyway, I'll title your graphic 'The Triumph of Self Interest and Myopia'.

Congressman get paid 174K per annum. That doesn't square with the chart you posted. Not a single one of them could possibly be in the bottom 80%.

I'm guessing the yellow ones are all in their first term.

I don't disagree. Like Eddie, I too would like to know who is in the .01 per cent. But to paraphrase Mr. rumsfeld, "you go to print with the graphics you have..."

And in re "binning data," I'm reminded that there are two kinds of people in the world: those that divide the world into two kinds of people, and those that don't.   :icon_mrgreen: :icon_mrgreen:

There's an old joke about a man who would buy a newspaper every day from a paperboy, scan the front page, and then throw the paper away in disgust. After a while, the paperboy asked him why he kept throwing the paper away. "I'm looking for someone in the obituaries," the man replied. "But, sir," said the paperboy, "the obituaries aren't on the front page." The man looked at him and said, "When the son of a bitch I'm looking for dies, he'll be on the front page."
... and there he is.

So who really was this guy i havent heard of here in Straylya?

Scalia was a conservative judge who by all accounts was a brilliant legal mind and who led what became a conservative majority on the US Supreme Court. That majority has largely unwound the liberal tendencies of the Court in the 60s and 70s. One of the reasons US domestic politics are so pitched and strident is that the sitting President nominates a replacement Supreme Court judge when there is a vacancy.

The US Supreme Court resolves matters of law on appeal form other federal courts, and the cases they decide to try end up establishing legal precedent in the FSoA.

Recent decisions like Citizens' United and Buckley v. Valeo have equated "money" with "free speech" and have opened the floodgates for legalized bribery campaign contributions on a level never seen before. The rightward drift of the country has been abetted by legal decisions and interpretations from a conservatized Supreme Court.

More like a really smart, ultra-conservative judge, appointed in the Reagan years with an eye toward reversing Roe v. Wade and other controversial, so-called liberal decisions of the Warren court.

He was generally seen as a total Republican asshole by everyone except the right-to-lifer's and corporate elites. Not a nice man at all, imho.

Cornyn should know better. What an insufferable prick. He used to live in my neighborhood, and I'd occasionally see him in restaurants, and people were always sucking up. Made me want to spit.

He's so afraid Texans like Cruz more than him, that he's swung even further right (if that's possible). He was always far right, just slightly nicer in person than Ted.

Days of our lives .....

I notice this is a flattering foto of hillary, and not titled 1st president under FBI Investigation, but only Trump gets an mad moment foto with a fearmonger tagline, instead of 1st Scotch-German. ... unless its a joke i dont get.

Sanders  in fact downplayed Jewish calling himself Polish, avoiding the whole identity politic  which has replaced workers benefits but not entirely welfare benefits as a distinction of the left.  Had he played up the holocaust and antisemitism angle it could have helped him but not enough to overcome the label of socialist he chose to use. The proposals had merit although i cant say i know the details, and im not so interested to bother finding out.

Free education would limit the ever increasing fees to what govt grants, and do away with no pass no pay system that has dumbed down university. This would need to be limited to those with the required aptitudes and courses with good chances of employment.

Insurance industry is a huge handbrake on the efficiency and function of the economy and in particular healthcare, a thorough shakeout would work wonders. Pharmacos are  useful and necessary at least half the time but not always and are very focussed now on fostering dependency  and downplaying side effects of drugs. Again the cost to govt and consumer could be cut in half easily with better outcomes. Taxing trading of stock exchange, sounds good. Thats about all i gathered from debate highlights.

Still, they say Sanders is not much chance now, and it would have a lot to do with the self professed socialism and it's  association with communism.  Thats because an unelected and unaccountable authority can remove creative control where they do not approve, apply double standards punishing proles but not party officials, who can close ranks rather than risk crony status and send you to siberia. These ends justifying the means for the greater anti capitalist good.

So you are upset that this particular meme has a so-called "flattering" picture of HRC? Also, it may be that FSA electoral politics don't translate well to Oz, but in spite of the best efforts of the Democrat establishment, Hillary isn't president yet, and thus not a President under investigation.

Sanders  in fact downplayed Jewish calling himself Polish.... The proposals had merit although i cant say i know the details, and im not so interested to bother finding out.
But by all means, don't let ignorance of the details stop you from commenting.

Insurance industry is a huge handbrake on the efficiency and function of the economy and in particular healthcare, a thorough shakeout would work wonders. Pharmacos are  useful and necessary at least half the time but not always and are very focussed now on fostering dependency  and downplaying side effects of drugs.

Agreed, but none of which will occur as long as the relevant regulatory agencies such as the FDA are captive of the industries they purport to regulate, and as long as lobbying and "political contributions" remain the mother's milk of American politics.

Still, they say Sanders is not much chance now, and it would have a lot to do with the self professed socialism and it's  association with communism.  Thats because an unelected and unaccountable authority can remove creative control where they do not approve, apply double standards punishing proles but not party officials, who can close ranks rather than risk crony status and send you to siberia. These ends justifying the means for the greater anti capitalist good.

The DNC is in the tank for HRC, and its head is charged with delivering the nomination. Here vice-chair resigned in disgust and supported Sanders, against threats against her promising Congressional career. The "media" say a lot of things, including what they do not say. There were a couple of primaries yesterday. The local fishwrap reported that Ted Cruz won two states, and HRC won one. One had to dig into the article to learn that Sanders won two states. That's the way corporately-owned media work in this country, achieving through omission what the facts won't allow.

A vote for Hillary is for the neocon foreign policy agenda, globalism, "free trade (hah!)" and BAU.

A vote for Trump of Cruz, on the other hand...

Feminism and the Disney Princesses

You started singing "Kiss the Girl" didn't you?
Films such as The Little Mermaid have created some controversy regarding feminine role models.
The History of The Disney Princess

One of the most iconic concepts from the Disney corporation is the “Disney princess.” From a marketing standpoint, in can be argued the primary demographic focus of the company has been aimed a young girls since its inception. There have been exceptions to this of course, especially in recent decades. Still, many of the films associated with the company have young female leads. Since many films were based on classical fairy tales or myths, these women were traditionally the generally accepted view of a princess. They were usually women who found themselves in trouble and were rescued by a man at some point. Essentially, they were beautiful damsels in distress and not much else.

Recent discussions have brought up the notion that these characters and their respective films may have a negative impact on the young viewers, male and female. Should women like Snow White or Sleeping Beauty be role models for future generations? Some have claimed films such as Cinderella or The Little Mermaid are anti-feminist in some regard. Here, we shall be exploring some examples of how this may be, but also some counterpoints in how Disney has improved on this over the years.

Snow White in the movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Snow White set the standard for the Disney princess.
The Blandness of Snow White

Generally, the most anti-feminist views could be more prevalent in the decades preceding the Disney Renaissance of the 1990s. Many of the female protagonists were bland and only defined by exterior beauty. Snow White for instance, was stated as being “fairest of them all.” Here, physical beauty was the primary fuel for the queen to attempt an assassination. When the huntsman spares her or when the dwarves take her into their home, it could be perceived this was at least initially due to her beauty. Now, Snow White was a compassionate individual who managed to contribute to the household and improve the lives of her new family members. Sadly, this is the only positive attribute she had besides her beauty. Her most defining characteristics are primarily superficial. Even her purpose within the household was primarily to do housework.

At the time the original film was created, women were still little more than second class citizens. In a historical context, they had only achieved the right to vote two decades earlier. Beyond the success of the suffragist movement, not much had been done to allow women equal status as men in the work force. The main expectation was for a women to remain within her home, clean and raise children. It was still very difficult for a woman to attempt self actualization, even if education was encouraged. Snow White is a clear example of what was expected of young women at this time. Be pretty and be nice. That was it.

Interestingly, some of the most classic villains are women. Most would argue they are generally more iconic than most of their male counter parts. This is a perhaps less so in earlier films. The evil queen in Snow White  is possibly even more bland than her step daughter. While it is true that she does have presence and power to offer a counter point to the young heroine, she is so one dimensional that she’s practically anti-feminist herself. This is mainly due to her motivation. What is it after all? She is jealous of a younger and prettier woman who simply receives more attention. For a supposedly clever woman with wealth and power and beauty of her own, the fact that her motivation is so petty creates a very negative and simplistic view of what motivates women. Now while it could be argued that she is also a product of the times, a societal view which does carry on to this day, she still represents an ultimately weak and simplistic view of a female.

Cinderella the second official Disney Princess.What does Cinderalla really teach young viewers?
The Pattern Continues

In the following decades,  similar examples of simplistic portrayals of women in Disney would continue to be shown. Let us next consider the primary message of the film Cinderella. Cinderella herself is very similar to Snow White, with just a touch more personality. Though it was primarily due to the circumstances of a domineering parental figure, Cinderella spends most her life in servitude. She is confined to the house and does menial chores. Now what is the solution the film offers for her to break free from these shackles? A fairy godmother arrives to allow her the means to go to a party, wear an expensive dress and meet the man of her dreams. In this tale, how does she attract a potential husband? Much like Snow White, simply being pretty. This creates the message that what a young women should strive to do is look good enough to attract a mate. Conversely, any boys watching may assume that’s what women are ultimately like and psychical beauty is of the most value.

Sleeping Beauty follows the same basic pattern as the two previously mentioned films. Aurora herself is possibly the blandest Disney princess of them all. She is easily ensnared by the villain of the film and demonstrates no real personality beyond a pretty face and a serviceable singing voice. Much like Snow White, this film has an iconic villain. Malificent is one of Disney’s most intimidating forces. However, we must observe the motivation for an antagonist. What is it? She wasn’t invited a party. That’s it. One of the most evil villains in the history of the company simply wasn’t invited to the coronation. This isn’t necessarily bad in and of itself. However, it does suggest a certain fickleness that is perhaps unbecoming of such a villain. This could be waved away as an example of how petty she is, but it does create another very simplistic view of female behavior and motivations.

Little Mermaid
Ariel changes perceptions of the Disney princess.
A New Era Begins

In recent decades, Disney has shifted their attention to created more well rounded stories and complex characters. At the forefront of this has been the portrayal of female leads. While some cases have been made that these young women suffer from Disney’s tendency to simplify these characters, obvious improvements have been made. This became more noticeable in the late 1980’s, during the beginning of the company’s return as a leader of family entertainment and animation in general.

The film that lead this movement, The Little Mermaid, has come under the most controversy of the more recent Disney films. This is mainly due to the actions and motivations of the main character, Ariel. The young mermaid has a fascination with the human world. She even lays her eyes upon a man for the first time and instantly falls in love with him. While this could be explained as adolescent infatuation, it is presented as “love.” This could easily be misinterpreted by young viewers. Even worse, Ariel is tricked into giving up her voice in order to be allowed the roam the land and gain the attention of this young man. Feminists have criticized this plot point for a fairly obvious reason. By sacrificing her voice, Ariel is essentially giving up her identity. She’s giving up her ability to express herself as an individual on equal footing. True love is implied here as being little more than silence and servitude to her male counter part. While Ariel is better written than most Disney princesses that preceded her, she still suffers from a very similar behavior.

The biggest counterpoint to this is the fact that Ariel is portrayed as a more realistic adolescent girl. She is inquisitive and impulsive, but at the very least show’s some initiative beyond staying stuck in a castle. She has dreams of exploring and transcending her current lifestyle. That’s much more than previous princesses demonstrated. Some could also make the claim that the film could be suggesting the romantic connections involve more communication that the vocal. This is a nice notion, but since Ariel doesn’t really do much beyond smile pleasantly, this isn’t really the strongest argument. While Ariel was more well rounded that those that came before, the plot of the film still leans towards suggesting superficial attributes towards feminine behavior and general motivations.

Get it? Rose colored. Like Beauty and the Beast...nevermind.
Belle redfined how female character are written in Disney canon.
Belle Sets New Standards

The next few films would feature female leads who were more independent, free thinking and presented on equal footing with their male counterparts. The first of these was Belle of Beauty and the Beast. Belle is shown right away as being intelligent and educated and not particularly interested in men. While other women are swooning over the bachelor Gaston, Belle doesn’t give sway to his aggressive attentions. Belle only becomes a “princess” by circumstance. Interestingly, though she is portrayed as a beautiful young woman, the primary theme of the film suggests the importance of inner beauty. After all, the fact that Belle may be physically attractive is not a crucial factor to the plot. She is shown as being compassionate and patient. This is why the relationship between Belle and the Beast is one of the best developed in the Disney canon. They actually have time to overcome differences, learn from one another and eventually love each other. Previous to this, most princesses simply looked beautiful and that was enough to entice young men to be interested. With Belle we actually have a realistic and well written role model for young men and women.

Even in films with males as leads, women were beginning to show more independence and genuine personality. Two of the best examples are within Aladdin and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Aladdin had Jasmine, a princess who defied expectations up to that point. She refused to be a political pawn for her father or Jafar. She wasn’t concerned with romantic connection initially. Rather, she wanted to pursue some form of self-actualization. This is an excellent role model for women. Jasmine stresses the importance of independence and self-reliance over hormone influenced pursuits that often distract adolescents. Jasmine’s mentality would greatly influence the trend of how feminine goals would be portrayed later.

Esmerelda of The Hunchback of Notre Dame presented a different form of complexity. Being both a woman and minority in foreign nation, she must constantly resist the forces that are constantly trying to oppress her. She shows great skills in dealing with Frollo and his minions and was willing to speak her voice when Quasimodo is being tortured in front of a crowd. While she is somewhat reduced to a damsel in distress by the end the film, she is presented as being fleshed out individual who builds a mutual friendship with the male lead rather than a romantic one.

Lineup of Disney Princesses

Mulan and the Future

The most dramatic shift perhaps came with 1998’s Mulan. Mulan is struggling with the image that her family and society have imprinted on her. She must be presentable as a bride to uphold her family honor. However, when her aging father is called upon to military service when the huns invade, Mulan takes it upon herself to impersonate a man and take her father’s place. This is a complete challenge to gender roles which is fairly progressive for Disney. There is a romantic connection in the film, but it’s not the main focus for once. Here, Mulan is trying to make something of herself without obtaining male compaionship. Mulan doesn’t align with traditional views of feminine behavior. Rather, she challenges these views. Mulan cares more about upholding her duty and saving her father than romantic connections. This doesn’t imply that she doesn’t care about such things but rather that she has higher priorities. She is shown of being capable of taking care of herself moreso than any other “Disney princess” in the traditional sense. Mulan is therefore the greatest leap forward for strong female characters in Disney.

The company has continued with female characters who are typically better written as role models and as characters in general. The most recent examples can be seen in The Princess and the Frog as well as the major hit, Frozen. Both films show women who go against the typical views of the Disney princess in a number of ways. Disney has truly had some issues with creating well rounded female characters in its history. However, over the decades the company has shown a great deal of improvement. It could be stated that they have provided their audiences with some of the best female characters in animation and perhaps all of film history. There are still some improvements to be made for consistency, but Disney has proven several times that they are hardly anti-feminist in their agenda.

Sending an email asking permission for a petition, so they couldI suspect,  laugh about it at the Board meeting isnt much activism really, just worth a try. For now its starting with people like drug addicts not being treated because theyre only going to shorten their life anyway etc, but if budgets keep tightening at the same time insurers want more and more giving less and less, everyone will end up at risk of negligence.

Since many films were based on classical fairy tales or myths, these women were traditionally the generally accepted view of a princess. They were usually women who found themselves in trouble and were rescued by a man at some point. Essentially, they were beautiful damsels in distress and not much else.

Recent discussions have brought up the notion that these characters and their respective films may have a negative impact on the young viewers, male and female. Should women like Snow White or Sleeping Beauty be role models for future generations? Some have claimed films such as Cinderella or The Little Mermaid are anti-feminist in some regard. Here, we shall be exploring some examples of how this may be, but also some counterpoints in how Disney has improved on this over the years.

Snow White in the movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
Snow White set the standard for the Disney princess.
The Blandness of Snow White

Generally, the most anti-feminist views could be more prevalent in the decades preceding the Disney Renaissance of the 1990s. Many of the female protagonists were bland and only defined by exterior beauty. Snow White for instance, was stated as being “fairest of them all.” Here, physical beauty was the primary fuel for the queen to attempt an assassination. When the huntsman spares her or when the dwarves take her into their home, it could be perceived this was at least initially due to her beauty. Now, Snow White was a compassionate individual who managed to contribute to the household and improve the lives of her new family members. Sadly, this is the only positive attribute she had besides her beauty. Her most defining characteristics are primarily superficial. Even her purpose within the household was primarily to do housework.

At the time the original film was created, women were still little more than second class citizens. In a historical context, they had only achieved the right to vote two decades earlier. Beyond the success of the suffragist movement, not much had been done to allow women equal status as men in the work force. The main expectation was for a women to remain within her home, clean and raise children. It was still very difficult for a woman to attempt self actualization, even if education was encouraged. Snow White is a clear example of what was expected of young women at this time. Be pretty and be nice. That was it.

Interestingly, some of the most classic villains are women. Most would argue they are generally more iconic than most of their male counter parts. This is a perhaps less so in earlier films. The evil queen in Snow White  is possibly even more bland than her step daughter. While it is true that she does have presence and power to offer a counter point to the young heroine, she is so one dimensional that she’s practically anti-feminist herself. This is mainly due to her motivation. What is it after all? She is jealous of a younger and prettier woman who simply receives more attention. For a supposedly clever woman with wealth and power and beauty of her own, the fact that her motivation is so petty creates a very negative and simplistic view of what motivates women. Now while it could be argued that she is also a product of the times, a societal view which does carry on to this day, she still represents an ultimately weak and simplistic view of a female.

Cinderella the second official Disney Princess.What does Cinderalla really teach young viewers?
The Pattern Continues

In the following decades,  similar examples of simplistic portrayals of women in Disney would continue to be shown. Let us next consider the primary message of the film Cinderella. Cinderella herself is very similar to Snow White, with just a touch more personality. Though it was primarily due to the circumstances of a domineering parental figure, Cinderella spends most her life in servitude. She is confined to the house and does menial chores. Now what is the solution the film offers for her to break free from these shackles? A fairy godmother arrives to allow her the means to go to a party, wear an expensive dress and meet the man of her dreams. In this tale, how does she attract a potential husband? Much like Snow White, simply being pretty. This creates the message that what a young women should strive to do is look good enough to attract a mate. Conversely, any boys watching may assume that’s what women are ultimately like and psychical beauty is of the most value.

Sleeping Beauty follows the same basic pattern as the two previously mentioned films. Aurora herself is possibly the blandest Disney princess of them all. She is easily ensnared by the villain of the film and demonstrates no real personality beyond a pretty face and a serviceable singing voice. Much like Snow White, this film has an iconic villain. Malificent is one of Disney’s most intimidating forces. However, we must observe the motivation for an antagonist. What is it? She wasn’t invited a party. That’s it. One of the most evil villains in the history of the company simply wasn’t invited to the coronation. This isn’t necessarily bad in and of itself. However, it does suggest a certain fickleness that is perhaps unbecoming of such a villain. This could be waved away as an example of how petty she is, but it does create another very simplistic view of female behavior and motivations.

Little Mermaid
Ariel changes perceptions of the Disney princess.
A New Era Begins

In recent decades, Disney has shifted their attention to created more well rounded stories and complex characters. At the forefront of this has been the portrayal of female leads. While some cases have been made that these young women suffer from Disney’s tendency to simplify these characters, obvious improvements have been made. This became more noticeable in the late 1980’s, during the beginning of the company’s return as a leader of family entertainment and animation in general.

The film that lead this movement, The Little Mermaid, has come under the most controversy of the more recent Disney films. This is mainly due to the actions and motivations of the main character, Ariel. The young mermaid has a fascination with the human world. She even lays her eyes upon a man for the first time and instantly falls in love with him. While this could be explained as adolescent infatuation, it is presented as “love.” This could easily be misinterpreted by young viewers. Even worse, Ariel is tricked into giving up her voice in order to be allowed the roam the land and gain the attention of this young man. Feminists have criticized this plot point for a fairly obvious reason. By sacrificing her voice, Ariel is essentially giving up her identity. She’s giving up her ability to express herself as an individual on equal footing. True love is implied here as being little more than silence and servitude to her male counter part. While Ariel is better written than most Disney princesses that preceded her, she still suffers from a very similar behavior.

The biggest counterpoint to this is the fact that Ariel is portrayed as a more realistic adolescent girl. She is inquisitive and impulsive, but at the very least show’s some initiative beyond staying stuck in a castle. She has dreams of exploring and transcending her current lifestyle. That’s much more than previous princesses demonstrated. Some could also make the claim that the film could be suggesting the romantic connections involve more communication that the vocal. This is a nice notion, but since Ariel doesn’t really do much beyond smile pleasantly, this isn’t really the strongest argument. While Ariel was more well rounded that those that came before, the plot of the film still leans towards suggesting superficial attributes towards feminine behavior and general motivations.

Get it? Rose colored. Like Beauty and the Beast...nevermind.
Belle redfined how female character are written in Disney canon.
Belle Sets New Standards

The next few films would feature female leads who were more independent, free thinking and presented on equal footing with their male counterparts. The first of these was Belle of Beauty and the Beast. Belle is shown right away as being intelligent and educated and not particularly interested in men. While other women are swooning over the bachelor Gaston, Belle doesn’t give sway to his aggressive attentions. Belle only becomes a “princess” by circumstance. Interestingly, though she is portrayed as a beautiful young woman, the primary theme of the film suggests the importance of inner beauty. After all, the fact that Belle may be physically attractive is not a crucial factor to the plot. She is shown as being compassionate and patient. This is why the relationship between Belle and the Beast is one of the best developed in the Disney canon. They actually have time to overcome differences, learn from one another and eventually love each other. Previous to this, most princesses simply looked beautiful and that was enough to entice young men to be interested. With Belle we actually have a realistic and well written role model for young men and women.

Even in films with males as leads, women were beginning to show more independence and genuine personality. Two of the best examples are within Aladdin and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. Aladdin had Jasmine, a princess who defied expectations up to that point. She refused to be a political pawn for her father or Jafar. She wasn’t concerned with romantic connection initially. Rather, she wanted to pursue some form of self-actualization. This is an excellent role model for women. Jasmine stresses the importance of independence and self-reliance over hormone influenced pursuits that often distract adolescents. Jasmine’s mentality would greatly influence the trend of how feminine goals would be portrayed later.

Esmerelda of The Hunchback of Notre Dame presented a different form of complexity. Being both a woman and minority in foreign nation, she must constantly resist the forces that are constantly trying to oppress her. She shows great skills in dealing with Frollo and his minions and was willing to speak her voice when Quasimodo is being tortured in front of a crowd. While she is somewhat reduced to a damsel in distress by the end the film, she is presented as being fleshed out individual who builds a mutual friendship with the male lead rather than a romantic one.

Lineup of Disney Princesses

Mulan and the Future

The most dramatic shift perhaps came with 1998’s Mulan. Mulan is struggling with the image that her family and society have imprinted on her. She must be presentable as a bride to uphold her family honor. However, when her aging father is called upon to military service when the huns invade, Mulan takes it upon herself to impersonate a man and take her father’s place. This is a complete challenge to gender roles which is fairly progressive for Disney. There is a romantic connection in the film, but it’s not the main focus for once. Here, Mulan is trying to make something of herself without obtaining male compaionship. Mulan doesn’t align with traditional views of feminine behavior. Rather, she challenges these views. Mulan cares more about upholding her duty and saving her father than romantic connections. This doesn’t imply that she doesn’t care about such things but rather that she has higher priorities. She is shown of being capable of taking care of herself moreso than any other “Disney princess” in the traditional sense. Mulan is therefore the greatest leap forward for strong female characters in Disney.

The company has continued with female characters who are typically better written as role models and as characters in general. The most recent examples can be seen in The Princess and the Frog as well as the major hit, Frozen. Both films show women who go against the typical views of the Disney princess in a number of ways. Disney has truly had some issues with creating well rounded female characters in its history. However, over the decades the company has shown a great deal of improvement. It could be stated that they have provided their audiences with some of the best female characters in animation and perhaps all of film history. There are still some improvements to be made for consistency, but Disney has proven several times that they are hardly anti-feminist in their agenda.

What do you think? Leave a comment.


It is my opinion that Disney films have done a lot of damage. People who have grown up watching these films have a bizarre, twisted view of reality with regards to role models, wild animals, nature, magic, and just about any topic Disney took on.

Frida Kahlo, however, was a very interesting real woman, who lived a life of constant pain which she turned into beautiful and significant art. She and her husband tried hard to save Trotsky's life, and failed. The story is a tragedy. The novel The Lacuna, by Barbara Kingsolver, is an excellent historically correct retelling of those events, and I recommend it. Not for gay haters though, because the protagonist is a homosexual.

And here, I just thought they were cartoons. Much in the same way I thouht the meme was funny. I would suggest that were you to survey 100 women, you would have difficulty finding more than two who thought these entertainments did permanent damage. Most young women's encounters with young men in their twenties are sufficient to put the lie to the Prince Charming myth. Uncle Bob can answer to his own demons and inchoate urges to turn a cartoon into an opportunity for moral uplift.

Guess you can tell I'm not buying it.

Was not aware of that book-- sounds worthwhile. Kahlo and Rivera's relationship is fascinating, in the way that artists' often are. And the backdrop of the 30s-40s is a fascinating era as well.

I can laugh at the meme and still hate Walt Disney. It doesn't push my hot buttons the way it does Bob's. But I still see Disney squarely in the middle of much of what's wrong with American culture.

Feminists take disney as damaging deadly serious. Knowing that the dead snow white being kissed by the prince to wake her up promotes necrophilia and rape due to the lack of consent in the act is like learning one of the letters of the alphabet in schools of Womens Studies. You will never see a criticism of a princess kissing a frog to release him from a similar spell  as promoting bestiality though, just as feminists never fight for equality in accountability, criminality and   sentencing instead insisting on double standards. The critique of the characters I presented as a reference is standard. A search of feminism and disney will show thousands of results the same. The double standard prevails throughout, there is no similar criticism of all the princes being shown as also having no career so therefore not fully rounded and also being defined by being besotted, therefore helpless. It is usually villains of both sexes, dwarves and animals taking decisive action that drives the storyline. The feminist criticisms for the females apply as much to the males, including love at first sight fallacy and fat shaming, as other than shrek the heroes all have healthy BMI.

She was never one of my favorites, never understood the fascination and praise she received.

Her art works are crude and ugly in my opinion. No big deal, just a different opinion on a person.

Hundreds of protesters were arrested in Washington D.C. on April 11, 2016. They were protesting Citizens United, and our corrupt government. The mainstream media chose to ignore the event.

D.C. police said it was the biggest mass arrest in Washington's history. The police department didn't have enough vans to transport all the people they had arrested. The D.C. jails were filled past capacity. The question you might ask yourself is why wouldn't they cover it. The answer is easy and well known to readers herein.

More proof that the revolution will NOT be televised. God bless Gil Scott-Heron, wherever he is.

Journalism isn't dead. Not by a long shot. Not as long as people and orgs like John Pilger,  Glenn Greenwald, Project Censored, The Center for Public Integrity, Sharyl Atkisson, Pro Publica, The Investigative Project on Terrorism, Alternet, Common Dreams, and others I am forgetting can find an outlet, it's not dead. Raped, broken and bleeding, I'll give you that.

Dan Rather once observed that when news was folded into the entertainment divisions and expected to sing for its supper, the news business changed. The sewers of cable news are expected to win the quarter hour, the better to monetize those eyeballs, while newspapers are expected to somehow shrink their way to success. And let's not forget Dutch's repeal of the Fairness Doctrine in 1987. The Fairness Doctrine proceeded logically from the definition of the public airwaves as a public trust, and the Radio Act of 1927 and the Communications act of 1934 made a condition that licensees had the obligation to show “due regard for the opinions of others.” It became a formal rule in 1949, and took the Reaganauts to dismantle it. Leading the sewer of right wing hate radio and legions of elderly retirees with high blood pressure and spittle flecked lips.

Journalism can indeed be found, but you have to curate your own these days. And don't expect to feed at the corporate trough and not ingest a bellyful of corporate agitprop and toxins.

'Exploitive multinationals'.  That from a man who passed in 1956, sixty years ago.  Sixty years of political illiteracy and now that illiteracy is resulting in collapse.  Seems his description of the worst kind of illiteracy was right on the target.

This is an example of ignored sage advice.  Advice silenced in a blizzard of contrary messages promulgated everyday by bullies who relish ignorance as it advances their agenda.  Start looking and you find there have been voices in the wilderness pointing to the folly of our ways all along, and they are always ignored.

This is an example of ignored sage advice.

Didn't appear to be advice. More like a statement of fact. proving, if nothing else, that those who spout off  about the good ol' days, really don't understand that the good ol' days weren't any different.

Quote from: K-Dog
Advice silenced in a blizzard of contrary messages promulgated everyday by bullies who relish ignorance as it advances their agenda.

Don't go bashing the internet now, there is no requirement we use it, we can all go to a library and figure things out, rather than being bullied online by keyboard cowboys.

The lobby to preserve the market for prisoners and prison labor.

Yes.  :(  :emthdown:

But there is quite a bit more to this story of 'screw the little guy for profit'. Some the best dividend yield stocks over the last thirty years, loved by all state (and FEDERAL) pension funds (i.e. just about anybody with a 401K may own some of these profit over minorities stocks), are Prison Industry stocks.  :evil4:

In order for a business model to work there must be a demand, and a supply. So this comment makes perfect sense. It would also make perfect sense for middling to large food distribution businesses, search light manufacturers, uniform and apparel suppl businesses, security camera and electronic locking and control systems, and so on and so forth.

Why do we demonize those whom are just in the business of filling a particular demand? Let's demonize TV and advertisers for providing shitty TV shows and commercials for crap that no one wants, obviously they would lobby for as many dumb consumers as possible as well, better yet, all of them to be locked into a chair for 4 hours an evening after work, after which they would be expected to rush out and buy stuff.

Because it's fucking immoral, for starters? To create and fill a market for slave labor, to you, is a "business model?"

That definition is basically correct.  But does Trump know what he says to be untrue or is he a legend in his own mind?  A mind is a terrible thing to waste only if you have one.  Regardless the actual definition covers that possibility which the stripped down version in the poster does not.

Quote
1) A leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power.
2) A leader championing the cause of common people in ancient times.

By the definition Obama is a demagogue as are the majority of American politicians under definition 1.  In fact I can only think of one who is not.

The Stealers Wheel lyric put me in mind of the Diner admin's pet troll:

And you started off with nothing,
And you're proud that you're a self-made man
And your friends they all come crawling,
Slap you on the back and say,
Please, please.

Yeah, I don't know why I came here tonight
I got the feeling that something ain't right
I'm so scared in case I fall off my chair,
And I'm wondering how I'll get down those stairs

I dont know where the fotos are from, I just googled and ogled. Im sure if she was a right wing1st lady and the fotos were from huffpo u would believe at once, and if henry the 8th's 8th wife was a lefty you would call foul for slutshaming and moralising if someone called her a stripper.  Now since i have 3 hours to kill I have nothing better to do than a thorough investigation to see if they have been debunked as photochopped by anyone with Peters type expertise.

Muhammad Ali 1942-2016
Title: Re: The Daily Meme
Post by: Surly1 on June 05, 2016, 07:39:13 AM
I had thought to perhaps write an article about what the example of Muhammad Ali meant to me, as part of my own journey from parroting the beliefs of my working-class forebears to someone who takes nothing on faith. It's pretty clear that given the outpouring of similar sentiments from many quarters, such an effort would only add to the generalized noise and be less-than-meaningless.

I did find this meme today, which goes to the heart of what Ali's example meant to me. He laid his career and future earning potential on the line at the very height of his career, and took a stance that was extremely politically unpalatable in the face of near-universal criticism.

Ali didn't dodge the draft - he defied it. Contrast this with the example of Draft-Dodger Trump, who said "Sleeping Around Was My ‘Personal Vietnam’." This quote is why Muhammad Ali was one of my greatest heroes. Made a deep and lasting impression.

What a Hero and Champion.

Ashamed to say I was conned badly by the MSM and the bad press they gave this kid. All the Black Muslim Draft Dodger BS.

What really finally yanked my head out of my ass was when Cassius was on the news one night explaining, as only he could with his unique mannerisms; "My Name isn't Clay, That's the Name My Slave Masters Gave Me."  I knew then and there that he was a real champion and hero, funny how a few words can wake you up out of the ether.  :icon_scratch:

We all were, GO. No shame in that. What's sad is that it took us 40 years to catch up with him, and then, only a few people relative to the whole.
If Ali were to have taken such a stand today, he'd be disappeared into the gulag, rendered to Diego Garcia or Poland.

Great pic.

Champion and hero. Apt. In history's rear-view mirror, Ali's boxing achievements shrink compared to his achievements as a man and an example to wretches like me. In the ring, I remember the last 30 seconds of last round of his fight against Earnie Shavers as the single greatest example of summoning up a seemingly-otherworldly exertion of sheer will that I ever saw.

The Shavers fight was the last time Ali would ever successfully defend the heavyweight championship. It occurred in boxing’s most famous arena, Madison Square Garden. Earnie Shavers going in was lightly regarded, but he was a heavy puncher.

Ali easily outboxed Earnie in round one and was doing the same in two, then out of nowhere Shavers' right hand stunned Ali and sent him wobbling. Hurt and glassy eyed,  Ali survived the round but was clearly rocked.

Action slowed in the middle rounds as Ali tried to “Rope-A-Dope” Shavers. On numerous occasions Shavers rocked the champion back on his heels with big right hands, while Ali kept his distance, and countered with sharp jabs and rights to keep Shavers at bay.

Going into the late rounds Ali appeared to be leading, but in rounds 12-14 Earnie fought probably the best three rounds of his career. Several times he stunned Ali. Many expected Earnie would tire since he had never fought past 10, but it was Ali who appeared to be wobbly and nearly out on his feet.

The 15th round saw a desperate slugfest, toe-to-toe. Earnie went after Ali with all he had left. The first two minutes, as you can see,  Earnie got the better of Ali,  and then finally tired. Ali, seemingly having caught a second wind, came on and hurt Earnie for the first time in the bout. The last 30 seconds, working on what looks like nothing but past training and muscle memory, Ali summoned the will to fire combination after combination at Shavers, visibly stunning him in the final seconds. To his credit, Shavers refused to fall. Ali won a majority decision.

His achievements as a boxer tend to recede with time, especially in this time of eulogy, but in the ring, this was his finest hour, IMO.

Or he was just under the influence of someone else, a strong, charismatic sociopath who called himself Elijah Muhammed, who managed to convince Ali and thousands more American black people that the white man was the devil incarnate.

Because, that is exactly what he taught. Hate. Check your history. Read the Autobiography of Malcolm X.

It's interesting to me how we come to create these hero narratives. Ali is a hero to millions. But then he was a young man under the influence, someone willing to use his fame to further a cause he'd latched on to, just like a lot of others.

Now, Ali was no doubt extremely brave to stand up and say what he'd been taught to believe. And I can see how, to black people of that era, in places like urban Detroit and NYC, that a separatist movement that just flat out said white people were all pure evil became very popular.

Nowadays, the black muslim movement has morphed into something different, just like Mormonism has morphed into something quite different than the mumbo-jumbo dreamed up by Joseph Smith. It has been legitimized by time and practice, and it's just another religion. Elijah Muhammed is forgotten, Ali is a hero.

History is written.

Feel free to explain exactly how the white man is NOT the devil incarnate.

Then feel free to buttress yor argument with evidence of how Ali did not have a mind of his own. Was it because he was black that he was controllable?
Little doubt that he had come to believe Nation of Islam doctrine, because that is what he believed. And little doubt they attempted to use Ali to their own ends, but they found that a less than rewarding pastime.

This is a gentrified version of the reaction that most whites had to Ali at the time.

Governor No Legs is shocked, shocked I tell you, that anyone would suggest he might have gone for the quid pro quo.

He claims he had zero to do with dropping the case against Trump. The whistleblower says it happened at the level of the AG's office and not further down the chain of command.

Might not have been Abbott personally, but somebody in his inner circle chose to drop that suit, which did have legs.

You MUST Change Your Attitude*   Karl Denninger

This is not going to be easy for you to read folks.

But if you do read it all the way through, and then act on it, it may save your life.

The events in Orlando make clear a few points.  Let me quickly review, although my other articles on this topic have laid out the case in far more detail, and they speak to the political acts you must demand right damned now and follow through on.

I know you won't, because at the core we no longer have the "right stuff" as Americans.  We won't call a general strike and mean it until the Second Amendment's 4 little words are restored to their clear, English meaning.  As a result you're going to remain severely disadvantaged to a degree you don't have to be but until and unless your, and a lot of other people's, attitudes change in this regard that's the world you live in so suck it up bucko.

No, I'm speaking of your personal view and what you internalize.  You see, when something really awful happens you don't generally get to think.  Your "reptile brain" takes over and it is what you internalize that comes out.

Here it is, in short: If confronted with overwhelming and superior force by an assailant who appears to be intent on killing you the only logical position you can adopt and the view you must adopt is that you are dead right there, right now.

Is attempting to flee in such a situation practical?  Maybe, if you can actually flee.  But "to flee" means getting well clear (beyond quick-action firearm range) and do so using cover and/or concealment so you cannot be assaulted during the process.  Note that for a pistol this is probably 25 or so yards and for a rifle more like 100.  That's 300 feet of distance you must be able to open between you and the gunman without being shot.  Further, you must know that there are no barriers (like a bolted or blocked door!) that will not only stop your progress but advertise yourself to the gunman.  Running to a bathroom, which is a one-exit roach motel and what a huge number of people actually did, will almost-certainly simply set you up to be murdered like chickens in a coop with a hole big enough for the fox to get in!

Second, the radio call to the cops from dispatch has been published.  The cops were told to take cover and not storm the building immediately despite knowing there was a man with a gun inside the building actively shooting people -- and they did exactly that, waiting hours while people who had been shot were bleeding out on the floor.

READ THIS CAREFULLY FOLKS: The cops, with overwhelming force that they demand the right to possess and use at their whim while at the same time they refuse to allow you to have and possess defensive firepower on your person in the very same situation and place, cowered outside in fear and let the patrons who had been shot and were being shot die.

Again: You must internalize the view that if confronted with such a situation you are already dead.

The reason for this is simple: If you are already dead then any act you undertake can only improve the outcome.  It cannot make it worse, because the worst possible outcome has already happened.

You must accept and internalize the fact that the cops will not save you; they will, however, dutifully inventory your dead body 12 hours later.  Their first and foremost concern is going home safe at the end of their shift, to "protect and serve" is just a slogan on the side of their car.

Folks, given the number of people shot this man reloaded at least twice.  This means there were at least two opportunities for the people present to attack him in some fashion; bum rush the guy, throw a glass or bottle at him, throw a bar stool, chair or table, anything.

There were at least two short periods of time when he ran out of ammunition and had to swap magazines during which he had at best a club but no bullets!

I am not blaming the victims here.  Unless you've faced what you had reason to believe was your imminent demise you simply do not know how you will react.  Unfortunately most people haven't put much if any thought into this situation at all, which means they haven't even planted the seed in their head that must be nurtured and grown so that if this situation arises they have at least some rational shot at turning the tide.

We used to, as Americans, face this reality on a regular basis.  We had a large percentage of our population that were drafted and sent to war from time to time and faced bullets whizzing by their heads for months or years, with many of their friends falling to the ones that found their mark.  We had a frontier where you faced snakes, Indians (interested in your scalp as you were, from their point of view, invading their land!) and simple starvation or running out of water, and more than a few succumbed to one of the above.  Disease felled even more, regularly.  There was no such thing as a "safe space" nor the idiot "progressives" demanding and putting forward same as "rights"; that is utter crap yet it has massively contributed to the "oh my God hide in the bathroom!" mentality.

Simply put you must individually perform this exercise, starting right now.  You must be prepared on a mental basis to adopt the "I'm dead" belief and position in mind, body and soul if confronted with such a situation.  Until and unless we, the people on a mass basis demand that everyone have their right to keep and bear defensive arms be respected everywhere, with the possible exception of where active, armed government guards are present to temporarily take the duty (e.g. a courthouse), you must understand that nobody else -- not the cops, not the government, not the FBI, nobody -- is going to be able to help and unless you're willing to break and law and go to prison you will be unarmed in any place such as a nightclub because your right to self-defense has been disrespected and you have refused to insist that this state of affairs be changed.

Nonetheless whether you're armed or not your posture must be, if such a situation arises, I am dead.

Simply put, this must be the position you adopt.

Because if it is, when that jackass shows up if he doesn't spend one of his first magazine's rounds on you there will be a short period of time, just a few seconds, where you have the ability to disrupt his attack and you must seize that moment and attempt to do exactly that.

It is the only act that will meaningfully improve your odds of survival and if you have adopted this position it will be what your reptilian mind autonomously responds with because you can only make the situation better since the worst possible outcome has already happened.

Title: Mass Shooter Defensive Systems
Post by: RE on June 13, 2016, 04:46:04 PM
The Gun Horse left the barn long ago.

What sort of "Gun Control" would have worked here?  This fellow was a licensed security guard, his guns were all registered.  So the only gun control plausible would be a complete ban of all guns, including those in the possession of Police who wouldn't need guns if nobody else had them.  The cops of course will never give up their guns.  Cops also are plenty capable of Going Postal themselves.

Then, even if you somehow could stop all the manufacture and sales of guns, today you can make your own with a 3-D Printer.  Even for standard metal, the technology of a gun is basic enough a good machine shop can turn one out.  As long as the criminal market is there to buy them, somebody will manufacture them.  Across the border in Mexico is a likely candidate for that.

The biggest problem you have though is that there are just millions of guns already widely dispersed.  How are you going to collect all of them, particularly all the unregistered ones in possession already by folks in the drug trade?  The ONLY people you will be able to confiscate guns from are the totally legal law abiding people who have them registered, and not even all of them register everything they buy at Gun Shows and the like.

The one thing that does bug me here is that NOBODY seems to be carrying even a non-lethal form of weapon to employ in such a situation as occurred in this nightclub.  If everybody had a few 4th of July Smoke Bombs, they could fog the place up so bad nobody including the shooter could see anything.  How about everybody in a Nightclub is issued 2 baseballs on the way in?  As soon as somebody opens fire, everybody in the club starts throwing baseballs at the guy!  Modern equivalent of being Stoned.  There is no way he could keep shooting while being pelted with baseballs.

On the Gun level, how about everyone wears a CO2 powered 2 barrel air gun on their wrist firing 1/2" Steel Ball bearings?  He'll be a bloody mess after the first 20 ball bearings hit the mark.  He probably won't die from this, but he won't be able to keep shoting either.  You can make such an air gun out of 2 1' long sections of steel pipe with 1/2" interior diameter and hose fittings from the air tools department at Home Depot.  Strap the pipes to your forearm with a CO2 cartridge and a blow trigger, and you got some defense here.

On the mini-Grenade level, how about everybody carries 4 M-80s (the big boy of Firecrackers that will blow your hand off and do every year on the 4th of July to some Darwin Award winners).  If everybody tosses an M-80 at the guys feet, he'll be lucky if he has anything left below the knee.

One thing is for sure here though, Guns are not going to disappear anytime too soon, so figuring out how to defend against them is a good idea.  For a Lone Shooter attacking large groups of people, unless he is sequestered up in a Clock Tower, he's going to be vulnerable.  You do need a means to hit him though, and hit him hard.

Interesting image. I naturally, and immediately, thought of Narcissus.  Then I reflected on the question, "Do 'smart phones' tend to contribute to widespread narcissism?"

I'm not sure if they do. But I do know that it appears that more and more people are (apparently) losing the normal and natural capacity for empathy -- which is trait of the narcissist.  Could it be in part because our human connections are becoming less and less immediate, face to face? Images replacing people? Are we becoming 'selfies'?

I'm guessing "the big walnut" is what I perceived as the knee of that Narcissus fella. He seems to be emerging through a veil, or from water, or something, and his knee came up (presuming it's not a very large penis?) through the veil or the water, or whatever.  I suspect it is his knee and not his penis, as if it were his penis he's had a terrible birth defect ...

Not sure if the Westinghouse Corp. did kick in the end or if it was the Yougoslavian government that ponied up for his hotel room and breadcrumbs.  Until Westinghouse died they were good friends.  Perhaps someone else can chime in with the time for more research.  He was an arch rival of Edison and might easily have referred to a device that did not work as an 'Edison'.
