Happy Weekend to all my JOM friends. I am so thankful to the Lord for global warming. Finally I am warming up and not freezing my butt off! Spring is here and I am thrilled. Bring on more global warming - it is good for the flowers and the garden.

centralcal

Easy there, girlfriend. We are supposed to get close to 90 deg. by mid week. A little too early for that much global warming! I am enjoying the mid-70's just fine.

Worry about global warming is not related to education in any systematic way; those with postgraduate education are no more worried than those with a high school education or less.

Awww. And after all their money and efforts in the schools, too. What a pity.

Miss Marple

I was at the auction Thursday night and met an old guy who was a retired driller who used to work in the coal fields. We were chatting about how the coal industry has been attacked and how stupid the windmills are up in northern Indiana, where they are dripping oil all over the ground, driving the residents nuts with their hum, and killing lots of birds.

There was an antique dealer there who said, "Well, we can't use coal anymore because of the air." Horse (redacted)! was the comment from the driller. I pointed out the fact that there has been no warming for 15 years and that when I was in college they were predicting an ice age.

I honestly think by the time we got done explaining things, he was a bit skeptical of the warming theory.

He was totally unaware of anything but what he had heard on network TV.

Sounds like a question for Rosie Palm.

Concomitantly, falling for BS is not related to edumacation in any systemic way.

I'm calling bullcrap on the ChiCom ping report. It's been like 12 hrs. How long does it take to upload the trace and determine what you're looking at?

Good for you, Miss Marple - grassroots!

Miss Marple

Beasts, What I find interesting is the number of people who are willing now to voice negative opinions of Obama.

People around here are usually cautious about saying anything political, even though we are a more conservative area then say, central Indianapolis. There are still lots of dems around, but they are strangely silent.

I go to this auction every week. Several times Obama posters and flags with the famous semi-communist portrait have come up, and uniformly there is laughter. They get hardly any bids, usually sell for a couple of dollars at best.

Don't know if this is anything but anecdotal, but there is a dissatisfied population around here, that's for sure.

narciso

According to another account, in the Straits Times, they didn't even have functioning batteries, so it's dubious they were pinging at any time,

Florida just didn't have it tonight. Connecticut's small unit outplayed them and the Gators weren't ready for it, or couldn't cope with it. It looked to me like Billy got out coached. Unusual, but sh** happens. Sorry JIB.

But Billy didn't miss 9 of 10 three pointers. His Gators did. He also didn't get out shot 55.8% to 38.8% as his Gators did.

(I couldn't remember CH's JOM nickname for Donovan, so had to use his real name:>))

One of my happy hour haunts has a very liberal clientele. The first few years after JEF's election, it was unbearable. The next two years provided his defense but the cheer-leading subsided. The last year or so has provided a beautifully gilded silence. Nothing. No global warming discussions, no ObamaCare, no smartest president evah. They know.

rse

BOE-

They know he is not what they had hoped for, but we went to war repeatedly to prevent the kind of measures coming at us invisibly in the name of adaptation to avoid global warming.

"shrink and share" is the actual economic and social vision these clowns are pushing while the pushers want pensions for life.

I keep reading all these taxpayers funded reports from all over the world from basically the last 4 years and wondering if anyone knows how the world actually works.

I liked your story of the luncheon. Red called today to find out if we had asked our eldest to call her. We had not and she was so excited big bro just called her at college to say hi.

What a blessing if kids can enjoy each other's company as adults.

rôti sans pareil—the roast without equal

His recipe calls for a bustard stuffed with a turkey stuffed with a goose stuffed with a pheasant stuffed with a chicken stuffed with a duck stuffed with a guinea fowl stuffed with a teal stuffed with a woodcock stuffed with a partridge stuffed with a plover stuffed with a lapwing stuffed with a quail stuffed with a thrush stuffed with a lark stuffed with an ortolan bunting stuffed with a garden warbler stuffed with an olive stuffed with an anchovy stuffed with a single caper, with layers of Lucca chestnuts, force meat and bread stuffing between each bird, stewed in a hermetically sealed pot in a bath of onion, clove, carrots, chopped ham, celery, thyme, parsley, mignonette, salted pork fat, salt, pepper, coriander, garlic, and “other spices,” and slowly cooked over a fire for at least 24 hours.

I'd hit it

@rse: Not sure if you saw WUWT's story the other day on a 'peer-reviewed' paper that endorsed exaggeration and hysteria in support of the cAGW message. The ends justify the means and they're not even being wily about it anymore.

The interactions between siblings is quite instructive, in my opinion. The ex and I are both enjoying the older sister mothering the 'baby' and providing her with frequent unsolicited advice, re: college life. I told the younger one that if her sister didn't love her, she'd ignore her. Too funny.

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

I have to kind of laugh at Randy Andy and Maher crying crocodile tears for poor Mr. Eich.
They, at least as much as anyone, have spent the last couple of decades demonizing as reprehensible bigots anyone who disagreed with extending civil rights to homosexuals as though homosexuality is interchangeable with race.

They look a lot more like the leaders of a mob who stand by, their hands neatly washed, while their followers beat somebody up than the voices of reason who have stood for peace and civility all along.

narciso

the matryoska of cooked fowl, seems too complicated,

no it doesn't seem like it, the coloquoy between Friedman and Hillary seems to prove it, might as well be talking about unicorns and basilisks, imaginary creatures,

windansea

more engastration recipes include Macrobius’s Roman Trojan Boar: a pig “made pregnant with other animals and enclosed within as the Trojan horse was made pregnant with armed men.” The rôti itself was said to be based upon a similarly dated Roman recipe for a cow stuffed with a pig, goose, duck, and chicken. But this wasn’t just a piece of Roman heritage. There are tales of a Bedouin dish of chickens stuffed with rice and hard-boiled eggs crammed into a lamb, then stuffed into a whole slain camel roasted over a charcoal pit with nuts. Perhaps that tradition followed the Arab Muslims into Andalusia, where a 13th century Andalusian cookbook reports a cow stuffed with a lamb, goose, hen, pigeon, starling, and a final unknown smaller bird served to the Sayyid Abu al-‘Ala of Cueta.

Jim Rhoads f/k/a vnjagvet

I am somewhat in awe of the success of the Gay Mafia to frame the gay marriage issues to equate them with interracial marriage a la Loving v. Virginia. There are so many arguments to be made against that proposition. But no one group has been able to coordinate a unified pushback. There is a unity on one side and cacophony on the other, a sure recipe for disaster.

Beasts of England

Just saw that, narciso. The comments were solid per usual.

Sex sells magazines, as others have mentioned. Rather funny, still, that Golf Digest would highlight such poor golf form. (wait, calling Fox Butterfield!) I'm sure she has a heck of a personality, though.

narciso

Well they consistently lie about what is involved, judge like Walker refuse to recuse,
law firms refuse clients, the same lawfirms who were first to take up the Gitmo bar's most insignificant complaints, the executive refuses to defend, from the state to the Supreme Ct, when justice is not blind but in on the scam, what is there to do,

Beasts of England

@Jim Rhoads: One problem for us is the simplicity in defending their message. Against their ideas? Bigot! Hate! Racist! Carefully explaining false equivalence requires an abundance of words, an attention span for the other side and an assumption of moderate intelligence. However, the reality remains that nothing said will change their minds.

It is truly: 'Four legs good, two legs bad!'

(even that slogan had to be parsed for the bird's sake)

Somebody refresh my memory: what's the difference between Bella Abzug and a bowling ball?

Beasts of England

I'd add that the left often couche their causes in terms of equality: who can be against that? The also get ahead in the battle of words and perceptions by being 'pro' whatever. The abortion debate is a good example. And when they're not being 'pro', they demean the other side in a similar manner: consistently labeling AGW skeptics as 'deniers' sends a powerful (although dishonest) message.

Jane on Ipad

My only response to the gay marriage fiasco would be: if I get to be for it, you get to get against it. Welcome to America!

narciso

they attack the institution of marriage, because it is the basis of society, they attack traditional motherhood for the same reason, it's not surprising considering where Friedan and Abzug come from, from the institutional left,

Bowling balls can be quite lovely - polished and slick. Bella, not so much.

What Is The Sound Of One Hand Warming?

Sorta' like the sound of one Bench Warming?

Ichiro Suzuki on being benched by Yankees: “It’s nothing I’ve ever experienced before”

And then, because Ichiro’s humor is always underrated, he also said:

"I know the rules in baseball aren’t going to change, but maybe they can play four outfielders? I haven’t thought about that before. But now I do."

Beasts of England

Sounds rational, Jane. It'll never work. ;)

Love Ichiro. I think he is such a great athlete to watch. So smooth, reminds me of Wayne Gretzky and Roger Federer.

My Badgers gave it all they had. So close. So far.

Aussie on TV giving the Press conference sez they have had 2 separate ping incidents, 24 hours apart, and separated by a distance of approx 2 Kilometers. That sounds fairly promising to me. He says that the second event was about 90 seconds worth of a ping signal. I also believe he said it was in the general location of previously spotted flotsam/jetsum, so who knows.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

Good comments Jim & BoE.
I agree with an Am. Thinker post awhile back which said we should have never accepted the term 'traditional marriage'. The left always kills us with adding adjectives. 'traditional marriage', 'social justice', environmental justice', ...
The word is marriage...& that word means something. All people can get married. There is no discrimination.
Tony & Steve can love each other & live together & do whatever....but they can not be married to each other. They CAN get married if they want, but not to each other because that isn't marriage.
It is a battle about redefining marriage.

And if it can be redefined to mean 2 men or 2 women...then why not anything else? 9 men? A dog & a man? 6 parrots & 4 women? Why not? Explain to me why not.

daddy

The Aussie briefers said they only got the info of the 2nd ping about 90 minutes ago. It's just coming up on noon in Perth.

narciso

That seems plausible, daddy, I have more confidence in the Aussies then the Malaysians or the Chinese regime, because they've been lying for the better part of two weeks,

daddy

Me too Narciso,

If I heard correctly I believe the Military briefer said that the ship was turning and preparing for another sweep and that they may get another update by the middle of the afternoon.

Happy, happy, joy, joy Ignatz

The poor Badgers had it in hand but I think they probably lost to a very slightly better all around team.
Only one missed free throw, but it was a doozy.

narciso

Have they given any indications of the depth of the ping,

Dave (in MA)

A bowling ball looks better in a stupid hat?

gus

Janet, why do you hate gay people?

daddy

any indications of the depth of the ping

No, It still sounds like they are in rudimentary stages of locating this ping. Sounds a bit confusing. I can't tell if the Aussie ship will be back over the area of the ping in just a few hours, or if it'll be 14 hours until it returns, or maybe that is another ship. Hard for me so far to make it out, as I'm not forced to watch CNN and they are quite confused as well.

I can't tell if the latest 90 second long ping was heard 24 hours ago and only passed 90 minutes ago to the guys who just briefed us, or if it is a much more recent event that we should learn more about shortly. Beats me.

hit and run

Home early from pool. Only 8 hours today.

Speaking of Pings, mine are 29 years old and I still use them. I'm not sure I'd even want to play golf if I didn't have my Pings.

Janet - the districts lie fallow, while the Capitol gorges itself

I don't hate gay people. I am opposed to redefining marriage.

Don't worry though...marriage is being redefined. It doesn't matter that most Americans don't want it to be redefined either. Voting doesn't matter, winning hearts & minds doesn't matter, passing laws doesn't matter,...it all gets overturned.
"We the people" are just in the way. It isn't our country anymore.
We all just need to shut up & get to work so we can send more money to DC.

Comanche Voter

On global warming; education or the lack thereof does not necessarily interfere with the capability of the average American's Mk. 1 bullshit sensor. Most of us can recognize it when we see, smell or hear it. On the other hand, your average liberal seems to have a fault in that detector circuit.

an OT series recommendation - The Last Place on Earth

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0088551/

about the race to the South Pole based on the book Scott and Amundsen by Roland Huntford.
The book is good too.

Made in 1985. The first 2 episodes are pretty talky - laying the character groundwork & background, but the story builds. It is heartbreaking to watch it unfold.

Richard Fernandez - http://pjmedia.com/richardfernandez/2014/04/05/eich/#more-35830

"The removal of Eich is about fascism. It’s about one group of people forcing everyone else to bow to their hat on a pole; it s about book burning, compelling obeisance to, as Jame Surowiecki put it, “a universal ideology” in a manner so bald that even those who might gain politically in the short term from it are horrified by its crudity."

MaxB

As I understand it, even though temps stopped going up, the planet is still warming. The temps are not going up because the oceans are now absorbing more of the warmth than they were when temps were rising. That's pretty scary, because with the oceans absorbing the heat, global warming has been cold as hell!

gus

So sorry Janet, I was only kidding you. You made an eloquent case for your logical opinions....LIBS....not so much.

gus

Janet. Bingo on the EICH and fascism comments. (not to be confused with EICHMANN).

Here in Wisconsin, there is a verifiable list of those who VOLUNTARILY PUT THEMSELVES ON RECORD as signing a PETITION for the purpose of recalling GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER. (a friend of mine). Should their signatures on a recall petition be a legitimate reason to FIRE them????????

gus

MaxB, could you cite some legitimate data or study that supports the OCEANS ARE ABSORBING ....."the warm". Bullshit. Man and Jeep Grand Cherokees are killing the planet. No proof is necessary. Ask any UNION TEACHER, there is your proof.
There is NO GLOBAL WARMING. None. Sometimes bullshit is just bullshit. This is one of those times.

Heard this today from an instructor on a Sim ride.

So a Pilot and a Preacher both die and find themselves standing at the Pearly Gates.

St Peter walks up smiling, gives the Pilot a hearty handshake and a good pat on the back and say's, "Welcome aboard good buddy. We're glad to have you up here. Here's some fancy robes so please come on in and enjoy yourself!

"All right!", says the Pilot, flashes a thumbs up and steps on in.

Then St Peter turns to the Preacher, shakes his head, grumbles between his teeth a tad, then tosses him a beat up old rag of a robe and says, "Hurry up and get on in before I change my mind."

"What gives?" says the Preacher. "Why is a Pilot so much more welcome in Heaven than a Preacher?"

St Peter eyeballs him with an ornery look and says, "Cause every time you preached a Sermon everybody in the Church went to sleep, whereas ever time he flew he had everybody in the plane praying."

I'd add that the left often couche their causes in terms of equality: who can be against that?
~Beasts

I'd add to that when a lefty gets on some Fox News show and says "I think we can all agree..." and then spouts some nonsense like apple pie and mother screed folding it into one of their stupid analogies for why they are correct in their thinking.

I holler back at the tv "don't include me in that stupidity".

I don't know, Jane. Marriage will always be one thing. It won't matter to me what a court, state, or the govt. says.

Jane, do you think the fascists would stop at the church steps? Maybe at the steps of the mosque but the Christian churches, not so much.

sbw

Janet, your adjectivial takedown on marriage is on point.

It leads to the question what benefits Tony and Steve want from "marriage" and what benefits our State ought to attach to its version of marriage.

If, ostensibly, the State wants to enlarge to population, then say so. If politicians want to dole out tax "benefits" under the guise of marriage, then say so. If Tony and Steve want family insurance benefits and access to hospital then say so.

There is no discussion, merely a battle to "win" that we all lose.

Language matters.
