In other news, DirecTV is making an exception and offering refunds on their football package despite the season having already started. May this be a trickle that leads to a flood:

Queer theory:

Queer theory is derived largely from post-structuralist theory, and deconstruction in particular. Starting in the 1970s, a range of authors brought deconstructionist critical approaches to bear on issues of sexual identity, and especially on the construction of a normative "straight" ideology. Queer theorists challenged the validity and consistency of the discourse regarding heteronormativity, i.e. the normalizing practices and institutions that privilege heterosexuality as fundamental in society and in turn discriminates those outside this system of power,[3] and focused to a large degree on non-heteronormative sexualities and sexual practices.

Queer Theory’s overreaching goal is to be sought out as a lens or tool to deconstruct the existing monolithic ideals of social norms and taxonomies; as well as, how these norms came into being and why.[4] In addition, it analyzes the correlation between power distribution and identification while understanding the multifarious facets of oppression and privilege. Queer and Queer Theory are seen as applicable concepts that provide a framework to explore these issues rather than as an identity to those in the community. Queer is an umbrella term for those not only deemed sexually deviant, but also used to describe those who feel marginalized as a result of standard social practices. It is a “site of permanent becoming” (Giffney, 2004).[5]

Fascinating that someone's parents would foot the bill for such studies.

-peter

Extraneous, you are so cis-normal. Theory doesn't mean what oppressive white scientists and philosophers mean when they use the word. Theory means any old half=baked idea that makes you feel better about yourself because you can play victim. Queer theory, Chicana theory, We don't gotta show you no stinkin' proofs of our theory

Isn't the issue that Moore may be unelectable in a general election?

Davod

I just clicked on FOX Business and they had on Geraldo Rivera in Puerto Rico. He was bitching about the badly organized clean up efforts.

Mind you. He managed to collect a number of Red Cross and EMS workers to stand behind him while he bitched. Geraldo (There was nothing in the safe.) Rivera, hindering rescue operations.

How did he get to PR the first place?

Old Lurker

Yes Jane.

And had that thought prevailed we would have run Jeb! who would have lost to Hillary.

That is always the issue, Jane.

Just like with Trump.

Alejandro Villanueva is now saying this:

“I made Coach Tomlin look bad, and that is my fault and my fault only. I made my teammates look bad, and that is my fault,” he said.

That's a stab in the back of the Rangers you served with. You put your ungrateful, treasonous teammates ahead of them and your country. Anyone who has bought his jersey should return it and demand their money back.

Jane:

I think whether Moore can win a statewide election is the fear. However, Moore was pretty good at being elected in the past.

And, the massive outside opposition funding does not seem to have been working in other states.

Additionally. The other Republican candidate will be buried by charges of collusion and corruption.

Extraneus

I know everyone's holding their breath for this one.

Feminist theory is the extension of feminism into theoretical, fictional, or philosophical discourse. It aims to understand the nature of gender inequality. It examines women's and men's social roles, experience, interests, chores, and feminist politics in a variety of fields, such as anthropology and sociology, communication, psychoanalysis,[1] home economics, literature, education, and philosophy.[2]

Feminist theory focuses on analyzing gender inequality. Themes explored in feminism include discrimination, objectification (especially sexual objectification), oppression, patriarchy,[3][4] stereotyping, art history[5] and contemporary art,[6][7] and aesthetics.[8][9]

Isn't gender inequality the actual theory?

My admiration of him has sunk to the basement, Barbara! I only wish I could erase the Twitter links and "likes" I participated in before he showed his true colors.

I'm so sorry but I believe this quote ~
"Every single one of my teammates is extremely supportive and extremely patriotic in this locker room. And I can not only say that for this locker room, but I can say that across the NFL, every single player that I've gone against.

"Isn't the issue that Moore may be unelectable in a general election?"
Yes, that's one issue. The other issue is that Strange will be beholden to GOPe.

Trump as always has set Alabama up as a win-win.

If his endorsed candidate (an obligatory endorsement) wins, that is more political capital for him and one more senator who personally owes him.

If Moore wins, Trump will be just as happy, maybe even more happy, because Moore is much more Trump-like than Strange is. Since Trump will throw his support to the primary winner no matter who it is, Moore will also owe something to Trump.

Trump has solid support among both candidates' voters. They're not going anywhere.

And the seat won't go blue.

So, no problem.

There is no "message" Trump will receive if Moore wins. It has already been gamed out.

From the previous thread:

"JUST IN: Attorney General Sessions says Justice Dept. will be stepping up enforcement of free speech rights on college campuses - Reuters"

I believe Heather Mac Donald had a meeting with Sessions about a week ago. She was previously offered virtually any slot she wanted in Justice (she has a law degree from Stanford). Although she doesn't want to join the Administration, she does touch base with them frequently. As you all probably remember, she was shouted down and threatened at the Claremont Schools awhile ago.

As a guidance counselor I have never heard of that as a major.

I'm thinking of major offices for the Department of the Interior in say Twin Falls Idaho, Fort Huachucha Arizona and Sterling Colorado. Oh let's give Texas a break and establish a field office for the Department of Interior in Shamrock Texas.

Tell half the staff in Washington that they are going to be transferred to one of those offices--but be kind and let them take their pick. Hey there is a benefit--housing costs are significantly lower in those places and there are decent public universities their children could attend in each of those states. What's not to like about that. And if you want to stay in D.C. --sorry your position has been transferred to one of those field offices.

Mixed feelings about this. I suppose given that the feds have gotten so heavily involved in education at all levels, even private universities, better this than what Obama was doing. But ideally universities could dig their own graves without the AG taking the shovel away from them.

Also, hasn't Sessions got more important things to do, like going after Power, Rice, over the unmasking and spying, just to name one item?

Extraneus

Not everyone can be a prof. I work with a lot of post-docs who got their PhD's in much more rigorous fields, thinking they could be profs, but that ain't easy. So, they toil at probably minimum wage after 7 or 8 years of grad school.

Queer Studies experts can land plum diversity gigs, though - for sure. The rest must work at Starbucks, however.

A very Orthodox Jewish sect. They just built a big apartment building on West End Avenue between 86th and 85th. It's pretty much entirely orthodox, but not totally. Of course, it's without a doubt a very family-friendly building, but rather an unlikely choice for our Megyn. Or so I think.

I am so angry today. I'm as angry as I was on 9/11.

These spoiled, pampered, useless bastards want to complete the job that the terrorists started when they crashed those aircraft into the World Trade Center. It's indiscriminate destruction just for the sake of misbegotten, belligerent rhetoric.

And for what? What greater good do these people serve with their useless lives and pursuit of pleasure? What purpose does their violent game serve with its ecstatic, wealthier winners and it's cry baby losers?

Villanueva came close, but not close enough. He has the least excuse of all because he knows what sacrifice and teamwork really are. He knows that in the real game of life there is a far greater price to pay and that if you do your job well, your brothers get to go home alive when the battle is over or at the end of watch. No lucrative salary. No hideously, monstrous ring encrusted with diamonds. Just your life and the knowledge that you were one of the few who stood between your countrymen and chaos.

I've run out of adjectives, but the anger still simmers.

I assume blacks and Latinos are very oppressed in this country-- look at any big city with: 1) shitty unionized public schools; 2) crappy public housing; 3) laws and regulations preventing job growth; 4) total absence of safety. The problem is it is their own politicians doing it. Not whitey.

They just built a big apartment building on West End Avenue between 86th and 85th.

Tonto, my impression is that building has a lot of wealthy hedge fund types--it's very expensive--many orthodox Jews, but not so much Lubavitchers, who don't tend to be so wealthy. I looked at Streeteasy.com, and there's a 3,750 sq ft apartment available for $32,000/month.

boris

"The problem is it is their own politicians doing it. Not whitey"

It might go a bit deeper I think.

The worldview they adhere to guides who they elect.

It may be simplistic, but in the 10 commandments there are some along the lines ... shall not covet ... shall not bear false witness ...

The American experiment to a great extent requires that as prerequisite for success. And the combination brought prosperity to those who can practice them.

What is the left all about now? ... covet and blame. Who and what do they hate? That Jews and "privileged" whites and Asians make the American experiment it work for themselves.

But it doesn't work for the covetous and blamers. Instead they insist on being "who they are" and not "acting white" or "selling out". And so their Cargo Cult imitations and Finnegan's Rainbow ideas don't work out. Because racism.

Ext, I believe they have real hair under the wigs. Sometimes they wear headscarves instead of wigs to cover their hair, which is obviously there under the scarves. There might be some real extreme sects where the women shave their heads or keep it real short, but that's not the norm.
