NK,

BTW, if you or loved one are coffee lovers then I suggest the SAECO Vienna Plus for the larger cup of java. If you like those capsule fueled espresso makers we have a Nespresso that makes a mean single or double expresso plus a wide selection of flavors.

When this UVA story is proved completely false, a lie, a damnable lie, the MSM and their leftist cohorts will blame it all on the conservative blogosphere for the unrelenting expose of a poor girl's most ugly trauma instead of just allowing the narrative to live.

JiB, we have had a now older SAECO whole beans to fresh coffee maker for a number of years now. One feature I enjoy if you flip through the various screens is a running tally on how many cups it has brewed since day one. I like to multiply that figure by the current cost at Starbucks and speculate that the machine has paid for my kids' education.

Schizophrenia and bipolar symptoms often make themselves first apparent in about freshman or sophomore year--and like the Salem Witch Trials-- these procedures are IVs nourishing neurasthenics.

This, but I think there are even less exotic reasons.

We're dealing with children in adult bodies. Most of them have been helicoptered and hyper-managed by parents for their entire lives and have no idea of what it is like to make decisions on their own (and face consequences), much less live separately from people who justify and validate Precious Snowflake's every thought, word, and deed as being JUST THE GREATEST THING EVAR.

I have long had a theory that the unifying force behind all bad social behavior is the need for attention. In this case, that attention comes in the form of victim affirmation by the self-styled societal elite, which is sought to take the place of the parental affirmation they can't live without. So they'll get it where they can, when they can, however they can. Including making shit up.

That's a lot of armchair psychology from me. Now I must get back to writing my soon to be bestselling pop-psych self help book, Boot-In-The-Ass Therapy: A Radical Approach to UnFcuking Yourself, You Navel-Gazing Prat.

I told my daughter at 13 years old that she was making decisions for herself from now on. I believe it was the right thing to do, since she could make decisions and hopefully we could pick up the pieces of bad decisions earlier and easier. She will be 22 in a month and I worry not about her, even though I have not spoken to her since Thanksgiving. Helping her with issues today merely involves short walks and talks around my neighborhood and I am truly grateful she lives her own life.

As for "bad social behavior", I see those today as Character Defects which I have found to be rooted in Self-Centered Fear (FEAR - Fuck Everything And Run). I believe these behaviors are "taught/learned".

If debugging in the process of removing defects, then programming is what put them there.

By my observation, the Wolverine has many natural talents so they would have to over-esteem her in shifts if they stuck to that basis.

Stirewalt:

Cruz not to blame for gun control backer’s confirmation, but the Senate is a dangerous place - Did you hear? Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz’s weekend stunt to slow down a budget vote over President Obama’s temporary amnesty totally backfired. Not only did it fail, but because of the blunder, one of the president’s key political supporters, Vivek Murthy, an aggressive gun-control advocate, was able to win confirmation as surgeon general. Here’s what the LAT said: “Not only did Congress clear the $1.1-trillion spending bill without restrictions on immigration policy, but Democrats used the rare Saturday session to speed up the confirmation process for nearly two dozen nominations that would have otherwise languished.” And it was everywhere on Monday as the instant and absolute Washington conventional wisdom. Except that it’s not true. While the weekend session may have allowed Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to jam through a few more low-level nominees, the calendar was not the issue in the Murthy nomination. But the aggressive Cruz shaming shows exactly how dangerous a place the Senate can be if you want to run for president – especially if you want to, you know, do things.

“Reid’s decision to move Murthy first suggests it was the most important nominee in his mind. Even in the absence of a Saturday session, we could have expected to see a final vote on Murthy on Wednesday. And for all the talk about retiring and defeated Senator Democrats wanting to flee town, they have a powerful incentive to stay. Reid delayed the process of passing the tax extenders package by nearly a week. As the clock runs on the extenders, which pretty much everyone wants, Reid will be busy processing nominees.” – Cruz spokeswoman Katherine Frazier in an email to Fox News First.

“Everyone knows Harry Reid planned to jam forward as many nominees as he could after the omnibus passed. He made this clear to members last week, and his spokesperson confirmed so publicly. Unfortunately, there are many on both sides of the aisle who want to distract from the more important debate over the President’s unilateral action to grant amnesty.” – Dan Holler, communications director for Heritage Action in an email to Fox News First.

This is all of a piece, and it is pretty clear to me in hindsight that when "raising awareness" became an unquestionably virtuous pursuit all the rest was bound to follow.

Sociopath narcissists freely fly their look-at-me freak flags to garner that adoration they feed upon like vampires.

And the crowds adore because even the non-narcissists want to feel good about themselves at no cost other than declaring that they "care."

rse - that is why I believe kids should make decisions early and often, with assistance from parents (while they will still listen to them). Many times, my daughter would come to me with a decision and rationale for making it - I played a game of "did you think about this-that". She would inevitably take it very well and go off to consider new information/angles.

I know she was looking for "atta-girls", but I did my best to refrain from those resorting to "how did it work out" instead. Eventually, she stopped asking for "acceptance" and realized my love was not subject to such conditions. She not only had my love, but my trust which I believe was very empowering to her.

Porchlight

Totally agree with Soylent's 10:40. Add to it: the beta males who major in women's studies exacerbate the problem because they want to nurture and protect (and sleep with) the poor victims. Thus the Jackies of the world can always find a boyfriend to whom they can peddle their tales.

I think the "raising awareness" excuse is usually an after-the-fact justification for the pathological lies. It is provided to the liars by activists as a defense/rationalization, but is not the prime motivation.

I'm pretty sure I do.

I thought the left was hoping to run against McCain in '08 and Romney in '12. Seems strange that they'd be afraid of more conservative Republicans, but that's they way it appears. This year, my bet is they're hoping to run against Jeb because they know that even Romney would kick Hillary's fat ass.

Iggy

While I find Jeb wholly inadequate to the task at hand and disagree with his immigration and common core positions and find his 'bypass the conservatives' primary idea troubling, his actual record of governance does seem considerably more consistently conservative than McCain's or Romney's and even W's.
Those are admittedly pretty low bars but I'm of the mind he would be less of a lesser evil than some others I have actually voted for.

Walker, Perry, Cruz or even the ping-pong ball Paul would be far preferable to me, but I couldn't see my self sitting 2016 out because of him, especially considering the likely masked (or not) Trotskyite the GOP candidate will be facing.

Soylent's post is absolutely bang on, but should be the beginning of the analysis here, not the end.
The desire for affirmation/approval is a feature not a bug of the human condition, imnsho, so the question becomes how to re-order the thinking from this form to a better one. Iow, what can be said or done to encourage your average prog to feel affirmed by supporting reason rather than unreason?

The game is rigged. There is no way for reason, truth, reality, and their attendant rigors and unpleasantness to compete with the idea that simply thinking the "right" thoughts and mouthing the "right" platitudes is a short-circuit path to virtuousness.

NKtesting

Clarice-- What is 'legimate' news and scandal journalism is besides the Sorkin point. Sorkin's productions for decades have been about heroes uncovering inconvenient facts about the powerful, indeed his 'fictional' shows have mostly been about feeding the curiosity of viewers about what goes on 'behind the scenes'. Sorkin literally has the least credibility of anyone in the world to question publication of powerful Hollywood gossip. His 'fictionalized' accounts of such gossip has made him millions.

Soylent,

You definitely want a burr grinder for French press (and espresso). Blade grinders produce too much dust (though they are fine for drip grind).

I have the same Krups blade grinder that I purchased as a freshman in college in 1987. Still going strong. Tip from my college roommate (now a Microsoft millionaire, incidentally): if your blade grinder is the small kind like the one I have, pick it up and gently shake it as it grinds, which distributes the coffee for a more even result.

Soylent Red

Reality is swinging her cluebat with wild abandon.

Reality hasn't even knocked off the doughnut and taken a full cut.

As much as I bag on hipster pajama boys, there is an entire generation of Millenials (and, to be fair, members of other age-groups too) across the socio-economic scale who live their life without critical thinking skills, or the drive to go beyond the "truth" their Gramscian teachers and professors impart on them.

When SHTF, in whatever form that eventually takes, these are people who are simply unequipped to handle adversity. They have been conditioned to be that way so that The State can handle the adversity for them. They will mope, and hashtag, and "make a difference" and all the rest, but when it comes down to it, Uncle Sugar will be looking after them, just as their parents have always done.

And Uncle Sugar will tell them it's OK, it's not their fault, it's the H8terz and wreckers and 1% capitalists that caused all this mess. And they will meekly accept that line of reasoning and obey. Disputing the accepted wisdom will put them outside the warm womb of dependence.

How would I fix this? Take a look at the things the left hates and you will have your clues: stable families, homeschooling, hard work and training in relevant skills, the practice of critical thinking and the ability to formulate and articulate rational ideas, developing an understanding and appreciation for beauty and order, inculcating adventurous spirits, free will and responsibility.

My biggest objection to Jeb is the two previous Bushes who won the office.
One blunted the Reagan Revolution which elected him and gave us the rapscallion BJ, while the other gave us the predecessor to Common Core in NCLB, gave us huge spending and a long war, both of which birthed Speaker Pelosi and Majority Leader Reid and told us ‘I’ve Abandoned Free Market Principles To Save The Free Market System’ to justify TARP and handed the keys over to the grotesque clown now in charge.

I think the cluebat has begun its worth on the millenials. Take Gallup latest finding among the most Democratic segment of that demographic slice:

Obama's approval rating among 18- to 29-year-old blacks was just a few points lower than his approval among older blacks. That approval gap by age has widened. In 2014, Obama's job approval rating among 18- to 29-year-old blacks (80%) is seven points lower than among blacks aged 50 to 64 (87%), and eight points lower than among blacks 65 and older (88%).

Fight looms over $3 billion Obama administration payment to UN-linked climate fund

The Obama administration can expect a knock-down battle with the next Congress over its announced $3 billion contribution to the United Nations-affiliated Green Climate Fund, a centerpiece of talks over a new treaty on greenhouse gas emissions held in Lima, Peru, last week.

“If they think they are going to get all that money for the fund, they’re mistaken,” a senior aide to Sen. James Inhofe, R-Okla., told Fox News. “You’re going to see us being more aggressive about not sending more money to the U.N. and elsewhere for climate change.”

I agree, but another way to look at this is that the bar for SHTF is lowered for these people.

I would bet that a major chunk—maybe even a majority—of Romney's notorious 47% are hanging at the back of the pack only because the safety nets deny the devil his cut of the hindmost.

The silver lining to moral hazard is that this helplessness is effectively a choice for most of these Eloi, and that option is going away.

RickB

Iggy,

Sorry for the lack of clarity. BOzo and the EUtopians are being applauded in the MFM for the "success" of sanctions, coupled with the KSA move in maintaining supply levels, in restraining Putin from nibbling on neighbors. The sanctions will prove as effective as those placed upon Iran with the added benefit of the corollary damage being inflicted upon the EUtopian financial system.

The tertiary effect is going to be a strengthening of bonds within the Eurasian Co-Prosperity Sphere as China assures itself of lower oil/gas prices, as will India.

A credible threat of the use of force might dissuade a thug like Putin but sanctions imposed by rotting fantasists are unlikely to curb his reaction to the theft committed by the IMF in Cyprus or the theft planned for the Ukraine.
