Help them get a base load of calories? My understanding is they are poor and hungry due to excess government, not lack of GMO crops. See N Korea or Venezuela.

Second, but I played the best guitars today: two vintage Gibson J-50s. A 1963 and a 1965. Eat your heart out, GUS!! :)

Miss Marple

Henry, in very poor areas of the world you could have a constitutional republic and it would still take decades to get their economies to where their kids weren't vitamin deficient. Certain conditions caused by vitamin deficiencies used to exist in our nation prior to modern food production and knowledge of nutrition, which had nothing to do with our government.

Let them raise the damn rice.

henry

Miss M, government is a bigger problem than lack of rice. Plus, I said nothing against GMO crops. Just pointed out that GMO in the hands of a Kim or Maduro solves nothing. Many African governments are that bad as well.

Miss Marple

Henry,

Of course there are bad governments. I don't know how to solve that, but I am pretty sure you can't get rid of them if the population is starving or blind.

It's a chicken/egg problem, MM

Bad government means bad health.

Beasts, I made a trip to the VAULT at GUITAR CENTER today. I got quite a fix of LES PAUL'S and STRATS, I even played a vintage GODIN and a vintage HAGSTROM.

The boy bought a 61 key midi synth.

Have you guys ever been to Carter Vintage Guitars in Nashville?

I was standing next to a $25,000 Telecaster, and I do need a Telecaster, but I resisted.

I love Carter Vintage Guitars, Extraneus. He edited Gruhn's vintage guitar reference books and saw an opening in the market as Creepy George grew creepier. I'd say it's a top-five guitar shop in the country.

If you wanna call in your card number for that Tele, I'll run up there in the morning and grab it. Of course, you don't want to ship something like that in this cold weather, ya know. I'll have it to you no later than mid-April... ;)

BEASTS, when I came home, I played my 66 Gold Top, and both of my Takamine acoustics.

OH, and I sang several songs.

I was on a ski lift last year at Breckenridge with my organic farmer-ski bum son (who is currently employed in the medical cannabis field, but that's another subject); I asked him about where he wanted to go with his farming career. He told me all about his interest in "no-till" farming and went on at great length about the evils of Round-Up and the practices of the agricultural corporations, in particular Monsanto, in developing and patenting round-up resistant strains of crops so that all the farmers have to do is spray round up to control weeds, etc., and also described various other evil practices which effectively keep agriculture under the thumb of Monsanto (as he sees it). He is quite eloquent and outspoken about it.

We then skied down and got on another lift with a very nice, older couple; I engaged them in conversation and learned that they were locals. I asked what brought them to Colorado and he said he came out to work for...Monsanto and recently retired from an executive position. My son had the grace to remain silent and I had a face mask on, thankfully, so nobody could see my expression. I asked the guy about the Broncos and we chatted until we got to the end of the lift.

For the record I agree with Mitch Daniels on this one. I have thus far failed to convince either of my sons to become Republicans, and I don't see it happening soon (although the tax cut and the repeal of the Obamacare mandate might help!)

I miss my '52 Les Paul Standard (gold top) sometimes, but it was tough to keep in tune with that darned trapeze tailpiece, GUS.

referencing the discussion from the end of the last thread- what we "know" and what can be proved are two different things. if you recall it was a little over a year ago when some of us (me) were saying that HRC could bite the head off a live baby on live tv and the press would cover for and/or explain it away. nothing has changed in that regard notwithstanding PDT's election. in order to get the public's attention on something like this you need incontrovertible proof of malfeasance/treason to get past the bias of the fourth estate and the fact that most of the populace has other things on their plate to worry about. the evidence has to be clear and clean enough to get gop reps and senators and, this is key, a few demos, to go all in. if the case isn't made sufficiently to get that kind of buy in then it's over and OL is pouring me a makers mark.

mad jack,

Child sex trafficking. If the Foundation profited from that (remember the comment he made at the Al Smith dinner about her taking several villages) it couldn't be excused away.

I have noticed a lot of thee types of operations being stopped - not massive, but a few herre, a few there. Increased talk about the subject is percolating up.

It's a long shot, but it's the one thing that no one would try to defend against.

https://theconservativetreehouse.com/2017/12/28/epic-trump-tweet-bundle-up/

The reason I am posting this is that the comments have older Trump tweets on global warming. one thing is that he has been consistent! The tweets go at least back to 2013.

Also, if you go to Trump's replies to that tweet, they are full of nutcases in full melt-down. We're all gonna die! Hliarious!

Also brought over from last topic:

definition of vague: not clearly expressed : stated in indefinite terms; not having a precise meaning — vague in a sentence.

Conversation:

Gus: "Mockmook. VAGUE REFERENCE???
"In a text from August 15, 2016, Peter Strzok tells Lisa Page: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office” — an apparent reference to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe — “that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk. It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40.” Page does not appear to have responded, according to records reviewed by CNN.

"Read the paragraph. Then tell me about it being VAGUE. Why would the FBI need an INSURANCE POLICY against TRUMP being ELECTED??"

"Mockmook: If it wan't vague GUS you could tell me what the hell he was talking about."

Joan: Mockmook, I'll tell you what the hell he was talking about. Strzok reminds Page of a conversation in Andy's office where she is certain that HRC is not going to lose the election -- that there is no way in hell that Trump (he) will win. But Strzok doesn't want to take the risk; he wants to take out insurance and compares it to life insurance that careful people take out against the chance of an early accidental death or unexpected cancer. (This is the way careful people prepare for such an occurrence -- my husband did, in case he died, he didn't want me left alone with two small children to raise.) Strzok appears to be a cautious man.

Senator Grassley wants an explanation: “I want to believe the path you threw out for consideration in Andy’s office — that there’s no way he gets elected — but I’m afraid we can’t take that risk,” Sztrok wrote to Page. “It’s like an insurance policy in the unlikely event you die before you’re 40…”

"Grassley asked Rosenstein to provide any additional materials that might shed light on the meaning of that message. In recent public testimony, DOJ officials, including Rosenstein, have declined to divulge more context or details about the significance of the texts, deferring to an ongoing inspector general investigation of the FBI’s handling of a 2016 probe of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of state."

McCarthy won't answer questions. Rosenstein won't answer questions. But there's nothing vague about the abundance of crap that's been emanating from the FBI's Russian investigation.

Regarding the GMO discussion -- I saw an article the other day that said broccoli was developed (by man) from the mustard seed.

However, would you have believed the FBI would try to unseat a duly elected president? That's what they were up to, you know.

Hillary is amoral. I do not forget her "We came, we saw, he died -cackle, cackle, cackle" after Ghadaffi's death. Most chilling thing I ever heard from an American government official - and I am an old lady.

Mad jack,

I'm not sure I understand the child trafficking thing but I read it as an executive order that would start with industry and work inward to the polititions which is why they talked about Eric Schmidt and Eric B (I forget) who ran Hillarys campaign and no one can find lately. At any rate it seemed like the EO could also sink Planned Parenthood. And if that makes no sense to you, join the club.

Man Tran

I read a fair amount about the development of corn many years ago and was flummoxed by a fundamental disconnect. The original grass ancestor was inedible except maybe for goats. So what motivation and what insight did those ancient farmers have to presumably take a few dozen human generations to patiently nurture the evolving plant into something useful.

On a larger scale I ponder how any development progressed down through history when the initial steps were essentially invisible to the the early inventors.

Posted by: mockmook | December 28, 2017 at 06:43 PM

* * *

Mockmook (mad jack, et al.), are you asking a serious question? If so, I think this is where the Trump Administration will truly distinguish themselves, historically. I've read that a novel racketeering prosecution may be forthcoming but . . . the entire reason we have a FISA court is because it’s a TEXTBOOK CASE OF ILLEGALITY to spy on a political opponent (this is especially true where an attempt is made to use the government’s massive security apparatus to do it). The FISA Court was founded in 1978 after President Richard Nixon left office in disgrace for spying on a political opponent, right ???

I mean, are you saying a very clear crime isn't committed when a known false document is submitted by officers of the court *to* a federal court?

So, specifically and individually, how about we start with Criminal Fraud, mockmook? A crime revolving around this concept has definitely been committed. At a minimum, these are practicing attorneys we’re talking about. They are officers of the court. Whenever any officer of the court commits fraud during a proceeding in the court, he/she is engaged in "fraud upon the court".

I pulled this from a legal website somewhere so skip over if uninterested in caselaw -- In Bulloch v. United States, 763 F.2d 1115, 1121 (10th Cir. 1985), the court stated "Fraud upon the court is fraud which is directed to the judicial machinery itself and is not fraud between the parties or fraudulent documents, false statements or perjury. ... It is where the court or a member is corrupted or influenced or influence is attempted or where the judge has not performed his judicial function --- thus where the impartial functions of the court have been directly corrupted." "Fraud upon the court" has been defined by the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals to "embrace that species of fraud which does, or attempts to, defile the court itself, or is a fraud perpetrated by officers of the court so that the judicial machinery can not perform in the usual manner its impartial task of adjudging cases that are presented for adjudication." Kenner v. C.I.R., 387 F.3d 689 (1968); 7 Moore's Federal Practice, 2d ed., p. 512, ¶ 60.23. The 7th Circuit further stated "a decision produced by fraud upon the court is not in essence a decision at all, and never becomes final."

* * *

Whether a crime has been committed isn't, I don't think, open for debate. CRIMES have been committed by what is essentially a criminal syndicate. The only remaining thing is to see how well our team exercises their prosecutorial and political savvy. Again, they've shown themselves to be quite competent, and quite capable of methodically taking down their prey.

RG,

I have this argument with my daughter from time to time, because she took zero science in college (fine arts major) and is prey to every scare tactic the left can crank out.

I finally got her to understand the errors in global warming and today she said she wanted to put in a wood-burning stove in the back part of the house. Success!

Now if I can get her to quit worrying about GMO crops I will be quite satisfied.

Jack is Back!

Going to bed soon but would love to hear from RG and the other true believers in a full revealing of the sedition on how it is all going to come down. How do you see the scenario unfolding?

I do not believe the IG report will set off any triggers or explosions. Spending time in DC, I know how protective they all are of anything deep and expansive. Sacrifice one or two minor players? Okay, but don't ever go deeper.

But I am all ears for everyone else's take.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Jack,

All of the things that RG and GUS have discussed are crimes, but the general public (especially the dem side) will treat it as a ho-hum event. That is why the conspiracy has to involve not only the political spying, but crimes which are easy to understand, and upsetting to the average person.

As I said a few days ago, Trump has to have known about a lot of this before he ran. I believe it is partially why he ran. I also believe things were really bad or the members of the cabinet wouldn't have returned from retirement or left lucrative positions unless they knew they were needed, badly.

I just don't know how they will get the public to understand, given how terrible the press is. I talk to people who are interested and tell them what I know. I ask questions of people who seem like they are fence-sitters.

I just have to have faith.

mad jack

Please. To suggest that those of us who lean to the ledge side don't think major crimes have been committed is an (im sure unintended) insult. Prove this shyte! Put some heads on spikes! I'm patient but please don't tell me it's a done deal when no bad guy has even had to hire an attorney as far as i can tell.

That said, "insurance policy" seems obvious to me--the game is afoot! That's exactly the sort of things the clever people who are sure they are more virtuous than we would say as a mild periphrasis for "we will break the law for a good end."

mockmook

"It’s like an insurance policy"

What the hell is "it's"?

Hmm, you may not have seen this link ...

http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/california-democrats-legalize-child-prostitution/article/2610540
This terribly destructive legislation was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California’s state government with a two-thirds “supermajority.” To their credit, they are sincere in their belief that decriminalizing underage prostitution is good public policy that will help victims of sex trafficking. Unfortunately, the reality is that the legalization of underage prostitution suffers from the fatal defect endemic to progressive-left policymaking: it ignores experience, common sense and most of all human nature — especially its darker side.

John Clark

Have to agree with liberals on this. The spread of GMO DNA has been found 13 miles from the nearest GMO crops. If an organic farmer wants to avoid GMO or pesticides, property rights say we have to respect that. "Economic externalities" and all that.

John Clark, it's a much less risky proposition that choking out waterways with run off insecticides and fertilizers which the GMO crops make unnecessary .

Unfortunately, the reality is that the legalization of underage prostitution suffers from the fatal defect endemic to progressive-left policymaking: it ignores experience, common sense and most of all human nature — especially its darker side."

This reminds me of an article I read awhile back. Didn't California legalize HIV transmission between sexual partners (or something like that.) They didn't want to attach a stigma any longer or something to people with the virus.

"Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Friday that lowers from a felony to a misdemeanor the crime of knowingly exposing a sexual partner to HIV without disclosing the infection.
"The measure also applies to those who give blood without telling the blood bank that they are HIV-positive."

Supposedly, modern medicine has practically eliminated the disease. Also, CA legislators want to remove stigma against prostitutes and also claim now people will get tested, where before they wouldn't.

Republican opposition says "...if you purposefully inflict another with a disease that alters their lifestyle the rest of their life, puts them on a regimen of medications to maintain any kind of normalcy, it should be a felony,”....

I don't understand liberals.

Joan, yes I think the CA Dems reduced the penalty for knowingly giving AIDS to another person (basically, giving them a death sentence) from felony to misdemeanor. Or maybe detention after school.

Yes one forgets how a mild outbreak became a global pandemic, it wee related by randy stilts in the band played on, and also David horowitz, they had identified the bathhouses in San Francisco as a man transmission point , and the health commissioner there merwyn silverman, refused to clise them. You may have heard of mervyns name, he is the head of afar, the leading aids charity, but they blame Reagan instead.

I always have at least one typo, no matter how many times I proofread.

Dems and the media think recent VA and AL elections show they're back on top and have a plan.
Sometimes a blog post comes together in a real harmonious way, like this one by Deplorable Don Surber on that premise above.
https://donsurber.blogspot.com/2017/12/fake-news-may-cost-democrats-mid-term.html

First the article being quoted has a cool line:
"Gingrich ended his column, "If Republicans can learn to tell the truth better than the elite media and Democrats lie, the GOP will win an astonishing victory in 2018.""
A good clear prediction, easily verified. And well stated!

Next Don writes quite a nice line:
"The tax cuts and the Alabama loss have brought Republicans together. The sniping at The Donald from Republicans has subsided."
We all feel it, right? The tax cut bill was full of malarkey but overall it moved the ball in the right direction and there does seem to be a new willingness by Repub congress critters to do good instead of do what the Dems/MSM ask them to do.

Finally, a number of commenters with cogent remarks:
"Congress should pass a law requiring photo ID for national elections. The dems will lose all the dead, illegal and alien voters and their numbers will shrink by millions. Maybe even outlaw votes "found" in car trunks days after the election, too."

"A significant part of my DJT vote was a f*** you to the press. I doubt I'm alone."

"The (Dems) have acted like such lunatics, it's hard to see, with 23 of their Senators up for re-election, how they come through unscathed."

The massacre in Las Vegas -- I realize we had a two or three-day debate about whether Stephen Paddock was the sole planner and shooter, and that the police have come to that conclusion.

But I still have a hollow and empty feeling when I think about that evening and see any pictures of Paddock, his girlfriend, the Mandalay with its two broken windows, and the festival grounds, littered and desolate.

I want to know more about how he lived, the money he sent abroad, his weapons, and how one man could be so evil, and no one in his life had an inkling of its vile and cancerous growth.

I think the police, FBI, our justice system owe us that much.

Its understandable sometimes their hunches don't pan out, their conjecture re the shooting in north charlestin, certainly didn't turn out correctly.

But in the realm of foreign policy and domestic skullduggery they are on point more often than nit. When Mccarthy is debating angels on a pin, they have names dates places at Al.
