Surly Newz / Re: This is how democracy dies

Maybe it should titled "This Is How The American Republic Dies".......but even though I can't get behind the WaPo paywall,

Clear your cookies in Safari for WaPo and try again.

If an article is paywalled, I don't even bother to work around it anymore.  2-3 days later the same article gets published on another website that does not have a paywall.

He doesn't want me to comment...which is fine, except then he gets carte balance to post whatever.. "No commenting on my thread" would be much easier if half the posts on the forum weren't his "headlines"........so I can only comment on a small fraction of what ends up here.....yes, that does piss me off, I come here to write about collapse and talk about collapse.

At the moment, nothing gets "pushed off the page".  I have the software set to drop 50 posts per day up on the Forum Homepage.  We rarely fill that limit up.  If we do on a regular basis, I will up the limit.  We have in the past, F-Bomb and Watson both would fill up the post list with their trash.  If it gets too bad, I will go in and send posts to a back room of the Diner that you do not see unlesss you know where to look.  It's not that bad by any stretch of the imagination yet.

I won't offer any further comments on anything Knarf posts, unless he decides to allow reasonable dissent in his comments.

But I do appreciate that this is real, original content......and I have an opinion about it, of course.

But you won't get it, Knarf, unless you ask for it. I'm done with you until that happens, and if it doesn't.......so be it. I have no wish to comment if my comments aren't welcome.

Knarf doesn't like to conflict.  I suppose this is part of his Buddhist philosophy.  That is one sort of Monk.  I am of another kind.  I am more like a Shaolin.  You know, Kwai Chang Cain. lol.  I don't initiate the fight, but if somebody hits me, I hit back harder.  I will keep escalating until my opponent capitulates.  That is how I play the game.

But then, sometime in my 50s, I had my first Visit from an Emissary from the Great Beyond.  Call it an Angel if you want to, whatever name suits you.  I have had several visits since, although they blur because your mind doesn't hold them well.  Suffie it to say though, I am no longer an Atheist.

Now THAT is a subject for a blog post.

LOL.  Perhaps at some point, but it is an almost impossible experience to write about.

I dont really like the cut and paste stuff that comes without any kind of setup by the poster. What caught your eye? Do you find it credible? Why? How does it fit into the larger point of view?  There are endless compiler sites out there. Without a frame of reference there is nothing to keep you here and with time it becomes generic crud.
Amen (from the atheist!) Amen! :emthup: :emthup:

I was an Atheist for most of my life.  I was born & dedicated into the Unitarian-Universalist church, and being an Atheist was OK with them.  Very liberal religion, lol.  I became aware of the question of whether God exists or not around the age of 5 or so before we moved to Brazil.  When we arrived there were no Unitarian churches, and so we joined a congregation of Presbyterians.  It was there I had my first long arguments about God with the Minister.  lol.  I was 7 years old.

And if you, dear reader, have come upon this site for the first time.....my advice is.....use your own common sense to figure out what's worth reading and what isn't.

I liked your posts Eddie, and the real world activities you often post about. I've often wondered what goes on in the background, that can't be seen by regular users because of disappearing posts, threads or topics that disappear after awhile. I can remember the discussion, I go back and root around and...vanished. I hope that doesn't happen to your stuff after you leave, you posted some interesting stuff over the years.

A LURKER surfaces!  LOL.  :icon_sunny:

Trust me, Eddie's posts will never vanish.  Only I can do that, Eddie can't even do it for his own posts.  That is the POWER OF ADMIN.  Power of GOD on a forum.

I also have backup copies I take of the database about once a month, and K-Dog is working on his system.  When it is ready, we will migrate the whole fucking database onto that platform, and it is fucking HUGE.  lol.

I log on once a year and leave a comment, usually around the holidays. That's how I found out.

I just about never visit TBP anymore.  However, I did drop by over there a few days ago to drop on my Video with John Lounsbury of GEI and Surly, because TBP and the History was featured prominently in the chat we had.

Suffice it to say none of us gave Jimbo a real good review.  lol.  The site is a fucking mess of Ads now too.  ::)

OK Diners, this is the first in the series of meals I will be having this week, and probably into next week as well.  It's the Follow-Up to the "Turning Japanese" video I put up yesterday.

Here is today's Brunch.   :icon_sunny:  Some of these meals come from what I bought as Take-out at Tokyo restaurant, other stuff I make myself.

Today we feature Steamed Dumplings, Sashimi, and Anchovy Topped Tomato, with Wasabi and Chinese Hot Mustard.

....until I get pushed way further than most......

Walk a mile in my shoes.  lol.  You ever get your posting re-written by Jimbo on TBP?  How many times did you go Mano-a-Mano with Watson or Moriarty, our most famous Trolls?  Let's not forget F-Bomb either!  If you post on the Diner, you have to suit up in your Fireproof BVDs every time you login.  You also have gone after me, and I after you.  Same with Surly, we both have battled with him, right to the MAT, aka, Walkabouts from both of you.  It took months to heal those wounds.  The longest I ever went Walkabout was I think 3 days, and I only did that once.  You forced me into that one.

But when I have no choice, I will take off the gloves and go bare knuckles with anybody who has it coming. Win, lose, or draw, nobody smears me and gets away with it I'm way past taking shit off every bozo on the bus.....I'm just not gonna put up with it.

Knarf probably won't do that, he's not the type to go to the mat.  As you know though, I most certainly am the type, and it is a REAL BAD idea to take off the gloves with me on the internet.  I am at this game longer than anyone here, I go back to the 1970s and the old Arpanet and IRC.  Don't fuck with me, because I do not respond kindly.  It is kind of like playing against me in a game of Chess.  You know what that is like.  lol.

For the most part, I just assume the things you say that REALLY piss me off are not said with a deliberate intent to hurt me personally....you're just like dog with a bone...who won't let go..and you're from the Apple, too.

K-Dog is the one with the Bone. lol.

Me?  I'm just your average kid who grew up in the Playgrounds of Hell's Kitchen in downtown Manhattan and playing Futbol with the Favela boys on Rua Joachim Nabuco off Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro.  Then there were the 7 Years out on the open road with my Big Rig, on all the loading docks, in the truckstops and in the railyards.  These things toughen you up.  I take no shit from anybody.  That is all she wrote.
