Yeah, good thing we don't collect guns. lol.

And....I don't try to organize idiots into armed groups bent on protecting my "rights" from a paranoid federal government with the power to crush me like a bug.


You are right.  They are nimrods.  And about the crushing of the bug business.

The appearance of some smash-and-dash black hooded men in black T-shirts and black pants would not surprise me.

Funny how they never get caught.

Reading the Diner they have been.  They must have heard me complaining about using buff Navy Seal types a while back.  That was a dead giveaway.  This time the actors were button pushing drone operators in a previous enlistment.

I'm not saying these guys aren't nimrods but how do we know anything reported by the FBI is true?


The FBI feels the same way about Doomers as they do about pink supremacists.  If we collected guns here at the Diner they would be all over our shit and any one of us could wake up tomorrow and discover we were in a plot to kill somebody. 

And that would be the first time you would be hearing about it.  To keep billionaires safe the truth must be bent.

Lewinsky offers colorful remark in apparent response to Starr joining Trump defense team

By Allison Gordon, CNN
Updated 12:45 PM ET, Fri January 17, 2020



"This is definitely an 'are you fucking kidding me?' kinda day," tweeted Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern whose relationship with former President Bill Clinton led to his impeachment in 1998.

Lewinsky didn't explicitly make it clear that she was referring to the hiring of Starr and his successor as independent counsel, Robert Ray, by Trump's team, but her name will forever be tied to Starr's in history. His investigation brought to light Lewinsky's involvement with Clinton, who was later impeached on charges of lying under oath to a federal grand jury and obstructing justice in the matter. He was later acquitted by the Senate in February 1999.

Lewinsky, who has struggled to maintain a private life following the affair, has only recently started to address her experience. In 2018, she agreed to take part in a documentary about the affair in order to ensure that her experience "never happens to another young person in our country again."
On Twitter, Lewinsky has become  vocal anti-bullying activist, regularly casting light on the problem of online abuse. She has also added widespread commentary on the #MeToo movement.

I watched the whole Monica Lewinsky report on your link.  Is that what people call left-wing bias?  I certainly don't agree we should feel collective guilt about making fun of her weight.  I never did and any normal guy and a few others would have gladly have hit it had they the chance at the time and still wood 2.  Pretending otherwise is dishonest.

Ken Starr is disgusting all by himself.  He needs no help.  I hate haters.

What report? I just thought her remark was apropos and funny. I think it's interesting, the long list of slime ball lawyers Trump has rounded up....I  wonder if any of them will quit or be fired in the next two weeks.

Derschowitz is disgusting.....All those Fox News mouthpieces are dirtbags.

I have no opinion on Monica's grown-up self.....

The article had a video embed that spends three minutes of your time (which you will never get back) turning Monica into a poster girl for ME 2.

What do you mean Derschowitz is disgusting.  Derschowitz has been disgusting for a very long time.  Without his perpetual pissed off puss he probably would not ever get recognized.

Her remark is funny.

Remembering ME 2. Before Trump we were going into an America where just looking at a young woman's butt was heading in the direction of a class A misdemeanor.  Trump is bad butt..........

K-Dog Off Leash Newz / Re: Web Page Newz

I've mentioned I'm working on a new web presence before.  I am about as far as the functionality Irv Mills (and others) have with blogspots right now.  The difference being my code is running in my own server on the very computer I'm typing this on.

Irv's site (A common Blogspot look and feel)  Nothing wrong with it if you don't mind the golden handcuffs.

http://theeasiestpersontofool.blogspot.com/2018/10/responding-to-collapse-part-3-decling.html

Compare that with a peek at what I'm up to now.  This is a screenshot.  I started writing an 'article' using my internal editor and added some dummy comments.



As you see if I just wanted a blogspot looking site where I write the software and host it myself I can be up and running pretty quick.  That just polishes what I have now.  But I want more than that so this post is just a tease.  Kblog really is up on the dark web and if you knew what to type in as a URL you could actually get there.  You could even leave a comment.  But like I said, not yet.  I have plans.



I'll be correcting the 'Dune' quote above through my Admin Panel but I'll have to create a Frank Herbert user first.  Go ahead and comment on my nascent essay.  Your input could make it into the debut Kblog release!

Whenever that is.  :icon_sunny:


That was about a year ago.  A bit more.  Where Am I?

Today I actually have comments working at chasingthesquirrel.com.  I loaded it up this morning and I made a quick test.   I have it switched off until I have an admin panel written so I can manage users.  How hard will that be?

Not very hard because I already wrote it once.  The website I described a year ago I finished but I only loaded it up on a local server.  I never used that software because I wanted to maintain continuity with what I already had at chasingthesquirrel.  My new version reconfigured my server in such a way that my old web page was totally incompatible and could not be mixed in. 

The code I wrote a year ago is a code masterpiece that will be a pleasure to reverse engineer.  That is what I have to do now.  Reverse engineer my own code because I wrote it 400 days ago and can't remember it well enough to just start working on it.  I forgot  my admin password and I had to search the code to find out how I generated passwords because they are hashed.  I always do that. 

I was able to hash a new password and drop it into the MySQL database just like the NSA can do.  I wonder what they would do if they could not access common databases.  Something to think about.

The end result is I have totally hacked into another fully working website (my own) which I have running on my local server.  I already was an admin there of course.  I can redo the admin panel functions I already know work into the code I am writing now.  It is not a cut and paste because I am moving a work of art into more conventional code and it can't just drop in because of the server configuration issue. 

Another turn of the circle.  But what I have left to do won't take a year.

In the meantime.  Visit and experience my rudimentary but still very cool editor.  It is in demo mode because everything it sends to my server right now gets an 'under construction' reply.  Nothing at the server can be changed.

Double click on an article or comment.  I have it set so anything editable will launch my editor with a double click.  Or hit a reply or new comment button.  When I pull out the under construction blocks you will have to sign in to launch the editor.

Unless I enable anonymous comments at the new comment button.  That is what writing the admin panel is about.  I need management functions.

At first I did not think it could be you,
But you're the only one who got off the train.
Yes, you must be my wife Miss Annie Halsey.
I guess I am your husband,
Hello, I'm Harry Crane.

Mail Order Annie
Never mind your cryin'.
Your tears are sweet rain
In my empty life.
Mail Order Annie
Can't you see I'm tryin'
To tell you that I'm glad you're here
You are the woman, who's come to be my wife.

You know you're not as pretty
As I dreamed you'd be.
But then I'm not no handsome Fancy Dan.
But out here looks are really not important no, no.
It's what's inside a woman
When she up against the land.

Mail Order Annie,
Never mind your cryin'.
Your tears are sweet rain
In my empty life.
Mail Order Annie,
Can't you see I'm tryin'
To tell you that I'm glad you're here
You are the woman, who's come to be my wife.

You know it's not no easy life you're enterin',
The winter wind comes whistlin'
Through the cracks there in the sod.
You know you'll never have
Too many neighbors
There's you, babe
There's me and there's God.

You know I'm just a dirt man
From the North Dakota plains.
You're one girl from the city
Who's been thrown out on her own.
And I'm standin' here not sure of what to say to you
'Ceptin' Mail Order Annie,
Let's you and me go home.

Mail Order Annnie,
Never mind your cryin'
Your tears are sweet rain
In my empty life.
Mail Order Annie,
Can't you see I'm tryin'
To tell you that I'm glad you're here
You are the woman
Who's come to be my wife.

Not every billionaire is a climate denier. Larry Fink is smart enough to see what's coming. I doubt what Black Rock is doing matters much, though, in the long term scope of things.  We need for Charlie Koch to have a Road to Damascus moment and suddenly realize he's ruined a perfectly nice county.....and a lot more people just like him.
Not gonna happen though. They're  probably building small nuclear reactors now to run the AC in their Enviro-Domes.

The rich have better educations and are more worldly in general.  But everything else about wealth actually dumbs them down.  They inhabit ultra conservative bubbles that reflect their own wants and desires like a pond of Narcissus made of solid gold.



Or silicon, thus canceling out their edge in intellectual superiority.

From a pragmatic point of view smarter people outnumber billionaires by hundreds to one easy.   1% or less being significant because it illustrates the lunacy of billionaires running the world.

The Kitchen Sink / Re: Collapse of Global Industrial Civilization is Nigh
« on: January 16, 2020, 11:24:07 AM »
Collapse is certain but whether it is "nigh" or not is unknowable (assuming nigh means within a couple of years). And will it really be a collapse or a long decline? No-one knows. Maybe it's because no-one knows for sure that people generally assume it will not happen (an obviously false assumption). In any case, humans are a species and I don't think any species has consciously altered its behaviour, so I don't expect that to happen in our case.

Drink two glasses of Kool-Aid next time.  With two glasses we can be sure you will keep your wanking to yourself.

Whining about the inevitability of this or that reality arc bores me to tears.  Imagine another inevitability arc where we are all Amish.  Human nature will lead to inevitable goodness in that situation.  Or imagine we are Nazi and we are trading in tattoo skin lampshades.

Human nature does not mean anything outside of the context of a particular reality frame.  Reality frames can be changed making the 'human nature' argument moot. 

Unless you get a paycheck from the Department of Homeland Security for putting placating comments on line that is.  They are expert at neutering people into inaction and complacency.  They even get some people to push the 'it is hopeless human nature damns us to death' argument for them.  It is a strong 'tell'.  Real people are not comfortable in cognitive dissonance and that argument reeks of it.  Real people don't hold such an attitude unless they are clinically depressed.  The attitude goes against human nature.   



Red pill people love the 'I don't think any species has consciously altered its behavior' argument.  It makes their pill slide down nice and easy.

You are wrong about anybody 'it really be a collapse or a long decline'.  Just because you are ignorant does not mean everyone is.

Nothing succeeds in American politics like blatant demagoguery, 

Trump knows the way to get elected is to wrap himself in the flag, pretend to be pious, and to do anything he can to goose the markets.


Donald Trump Is Promising ‘Big Action’ on School Prayer to Rally Evangelical Voters

If he carries a cross he'd better wear gloves.

As some of you know, I have to find a new job.  I'm looking and was mystified  Why is it not to be so easy in a 3.5% unemployed economy.

True, I am an old fart, but I do have skills.  Yet the way things are going it is like I just got kicked out a prison gate with $100 of walking around money.


So WTF ?

Looking into things the average time to find a job when unemployed a year ago was 22 weeks.  Now it is 20 weeks but the unemployment rate is considered to be a historic low or some bullshit.  A year ago the claim could not have been made.  The unemployment rate was significantly higher but new ways were found to obfuscate the truth.  Somebody is fudging the numbers because we have 'job creators' otherwise known as liars in charge.  Check this out.



By itself that graph does not say much.  It turns out there is now a wide gap between what is advertised and what gets filled.  The graph says not that employers can't find people.  It says employers are only looking for perfect fits which means the true number of unemployed is:
  • huge
  • or the economy is on drugs and we are all about to feel a very hard crash.
Here the 'or' represents two explanations which in this case are not mutually exclusive at all, and are in fact two sides of the same coin.  The coin which will soon be the currency of fucked town.  But to our Republican dog catchers this is a Joseph Goebbels wet dream.  They can completely spin it the other way.

We can't find the exact fit and that is all we want because anything else loses us money for we have built a fucking house of cards becomes:

Low unemployment.

Unmitigated growth has moved us to an area where efficiencies in budgets have become so extreme and efficiencies in operational procedures have become so prescribed there is no wiggle room.  Like a giant puzzle with 1000 pieces there are only a few missing.  If you don't have the exact shape, and to be ironic, I'll say the right color, you are fucked.  And expand your definition of color.  Color is now seen with closed eyes.

This is difficult to explain, I'll start another way.  Just before the Rwandan genocide the land was lush.  Food was being grown everywhereEverywhere is in bold because that was the problem.  The 'system' had never worked better or was it ever more fragile.  But production had reached its limit and then when the trigger came, people started to do what their genetics told them to do when there were too many people in one place.  Jevon's paradox at the end of the line.

Economically we are a high tech Rwanda also about to go on genetic autopilot.  The cheetoh will claim he is a job creator even as they drag him away.  There was a time when I would have thought that would be crazy behavior.  But now in a land fully propagandized, where the average person is managed so completely they have no clue about the actual state of our reality; he who screams louder wins.

And there are all sorts of ways to keep the little guy offline.  Even while he/she thinks they are a video star.
