I've just figured out something that's been nagging at the back of me head for quite a while now;Tom Maguire and I are kindred spirits. In the words of Catherine Earnshaw "He's more myself than I am. Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.”

O.k, that was kind of weird and freaky, but I dig how he takes every opportunity to extract the maximum amount of political pain from the opposition regardless of how innocent or undeserving they are.I do that too!!!!!

We are Irish intellectual brothers of hatred and destruction sir,let loose in the United states of America with our own brand of nasty, filthy, scummy, petty attacks that only the Irish can truly muster after 800 years of oppression.

On the subject, our editorial today: Identity politics is bankrupt:

The assassination of NYC police officers Wenjian Liu, an Asian, and Rafael Ramos, an Hispanic, and the disgusting public reaction, ripped the mask off identity politics used to mislead people to believe that some physical or cultural group characteristic was worth more than individuals by themselves.

Political opportunists have played identity politics over the last century using inflammatory rhetoric to turn the personal into the political driving wedges between races, sexes, cultures, and more.

German political theorist Jurgen Habermas helped make identity politics easy to recognize. Studying crowd manipulation by German national socialist, Italian fascist, and Eastern European communist demagogues, Habermas labeled communication either 1) communicative — used by democracies to reach agreement or 2) strategic — used to intimidate and control.

Barack Obama and his followers resort to strategic communication to manipulate listeners with dissembling and lies. Strategic communication by Obama’s administration encouraged race-baiting, excused lawlessness, and tolerated uncontrolled anti-police protests.

Next time: Reduce butter by 1/4 C, increase flour by two cups, make the rolled balls smaller, bake for a little longer.

Today's batch with the added flour is much better but the cookies are still soft on the inside. I think if I follow the above strategies, next year I will be more successful. Also, I probably could have gotten away with a single batch.

Yeah, dd. Obama evoking MLK wasn't saying that cops want to lynch innocent blacks like southern Democrats wanted to lynch MLK.

Oh wait. He was.

Being a half white guy, raised by whites and more white than black due to his upbringing, why does Obama pretend that he's black?

Oh wait. He has no chance of stirring up white people against blacks.

"...crowd manipulation by German national socialist"

I wouldn't be opposed to the new German PEGIDA(Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West) movement doing an "evening stroll" over at Sharpton's NAN tonight if he refuses to heed DeCommios call to stand down.

Cross posted from previous thread...

DoT - thanks for the intel. Every little bit helps. More curious than anything else.

Dad was listed as a Signalman 3rd Class (SM3) aboard a minesweeper and 3 different degaussing vessels (will have to get the paperwork out for their names). The minesweeper (unknown and not listed in his official record) was taken out by mines, mom indicated he was transferred just before it occurred (all/most hands lost). Only discussion from him was he had a "Summer Cruise" in 1945, he and others shot at floating mines cut from where they were planted, and had a Colt 1911 sidearm while on "shore leave" in Okinawa (Japs still in pill boxes). I never pressed for any information and he rarely talked about it. I do know he hated firearms and never wanted to see mine (just 2 Deer Hunting Rifles at the time). When I was a kid. even seeing my 1911 style Marksman 1010 BB Pistol seemed to cause pain/issues.

When discussing it with a military friend in passing, he said some things that made me doubt my dad's story. From what I understand, WWII Frogmen/UDT/EOD personnel were selected to the program based upon athletic ability with some that were in Professional Sports being selected. My dad was an exceptional swimmer, growing up in Keego Harbor MI, along with having athletic ability being on the HS Football Team, a Caddy, and being an Assistant Golf Professional (went on to be a Golf Professional for 55 years, was on Ben Hogan Staff in 1950's and 1960's). When discussing it with my mom, to my surprise she revealed that he had been part of the Frogmen program but he claimed that he washed out. My mom didn't really believe it as she knew him from growing up in the area, her father was a farmhand at Cousins Farm - largest in Bloomfield Hills at the time. They were married in 1950, so my mom did not get much information until after he came back from WWII.

It would just be interesting to find out, one more reason to admire the man who was my hero growing up. I know that he signed the PGA Card for Howard Brown (a Black Golf Professional in the UGA) in the early 1960's, but was not admitted until 1969 (widely believed to the be the reason why he was not accepted at certain Head Golf Professional Jobs in the 1960's and 1970's). My brother turns 60 next year and is the keeper of the Plaques, Trophies, PGA Money Clips, Articles, Pictures, Burial Flag, etc and I would love to give him further information on Dad's Service Record.

'goggles they do nothing'

Nice Celtic quote, Dublin Dave.

"The English phrase "our day will come" has been used in various contexts. "Our Day Will Come", a pop song about love, was a 1963 hit for Ruby & the Romantics. In the context of Irish politics, in James Joyce's A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, the nationalist Michael Davin (based on George Clancy) says "They [Irish freedom fighters] died for their ideals, Stevie. Our day will come yet, believe me."[1]

The Irish phrase tiocfaidh ár lá is attributed to Provisional IRA prisoner Bobby Sands,[2][3][4][5] who uses it in several writings smuggled out of the Maze Prison.[6] It is the last sentence of the diary he kept of the 1981 hunger strike in which he died.[7] Many Republicans learned Irish in prison, (a phenomenon known as "Jailtacht", a pun on Gaeltacht)[8] and conversed regularly with each other through Irish, both for cultural reasons and to keep secrets from the wardens.[9] The Irish language revival movement has often overlapped with Irish Republicanism, particularly in Northern Ireland.[10][11][12] The upsurge in Republican consciousness in the wake of the hunger strikes also increased awareness of the Irish language in Republican areas.[13]

too bad the Molly Maguiire's aren't part of the descriptor.

Btw, any chance the (Obama) girls will be discriminated against when they apply to college?

Depends on the meaning of "discriminate." I imagine they will be admitted anywhere they chose without application. Power of the phone and the pen.

That said, the girls are receiving a better education than the black football players at UCLA.

Oh, no. I won't do that. I will harm any that try to push that on me.

The congestion hasn't progressed so far.

After I woke up at 4am with the back aches, I finally took the motrin around 8am. Did the trick (hey, maybe it was all the oils!). Thought my worries were overblown. Then around 3pm the motrin wore off and the aches were back with a vengence. Started getting the chills.

Took some aleve and a couple of Titos and I'm doing eh, ok.

It's probably gonna be a long night though.

That's ok, it'll build character.

Being half Irish with the remainder Native American, Scot, Germanic I fins I empathize more with Irish.NA always the downtrodden in social venues. It's said the reason God created whiskey was to prevent the Irish from ruling the world. I think God's wisdom is apparent in that point of view. No one should rule the world. The notion of decentralized government seems to gain credence, in light of the propensity for the egoistic to have the means and motivation for seeking their own ends, augmented by their deft manipulation of media no longer having credence in the rational world of thinking people.

Therein lies our greatest obstacle; the notion that thinking is work and therefore bad. When we can inspire those who slumber in a daydream to transform into critical thinkers en masse, we will not survive the coming days, much less have quality of life as a committed survivor should we and those we love are under threat of any manufacture. We should thank the Gods we have enjoyed our lives as full and without remorse and we are humanly possible.

That's our only oiutcomes, as I see it.

Sorry to be so sour on a holiday that should have hope, but I don't believe in Santy Claus any more.

Hit, it sounds like you have the flu. You need to go to an urgent care to see if you do, as you can take Tamiflu if you get there within 48 hours of severe symptoms and it will decrease length and severity.
Some docs will put your whole family on it.
Real flu is nasty.

sbw's 5:04 editorial link is very good. a bit -

"It is not hip to cozy up to thugs and lawbreakers or to admire protesting looters who treat their victims as nothing. Black racism toward others is as evil as racism by others toward blacks. Obama’s followers dare not look underneath the façade of identity politics to see what was called racial justice is injustice by another name."

This was linked earlier, but it's a very good article on the UVA lie story & one of the guys that wrecked the frat. house.

Unpunished vandalism rampage inspired by Rolling Stone’s U.Va. rape story

Student activist who led vandalism attack on Phi Kappa Psi fraternity house says he has no regrets

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/dec/21/rolling-stone-university-of-virginia-rape-story-sp/?page=all#pagebreak

a bit - "Mr. Dershowitz also said the mentality expressed by the student who claims to have participated in the fraternity house attack also should raise alarm.

“It’s the notion of collective punishment; you punish an entire fraternity for the allegations of several people, and you take the law into your own hands, and it’s a total violation to the notion that punishment should be based on proof of individual guilt,” he said. “It’s become a mantra of the radical left, whether it’s about punishing all policemen for Ferguson or all fraternity persons for alleged rapes. It’s a road to lawlessness.

“That’s the argument the terrorists make,” he said. “That’s the argument that Hamas makes, that al Qaeda makes, and it’s the argument that some radical Weathermen made in the U.S. when they blew up universities in the 1970s. It’s the first baby step on the road to justifying terrorism.”"

So I've mentioned previously how my parents' house is just a few miles from Texas Presbyterian (ebola ground zero for Thomas Eric Duncan). In fact, to get to Central Expressway (and on to I-35 to get to San Antonio) from my parents' house - you go right by the hospital - Walnut Hill and Greenville Ave.

That is, we went right by Texas Presbyterian on Monday coming here from Dallas.

hit, you might want to dry xlear to clear up the nasal congestion. It's saline solution + xylitol--the xylitol is sweet and the germs love sweet, so they mosey on over and the saline solution bumps them off. Sounds weird, but it really works even better than the old standby saline solution.

Thanks, anonamom. Under medication (Aleve not Titos! No, wait, Aleve and Titos!) I'm doing pretty good.

https://firstlook.org/theintercept/2014/12/17/billion-dollar-surveillance-blimp-launch-maryland/

In just a few days, the Army will launch the first of two massive blimps over Maryland, the last gasp of an 18-year-long $2.8-billion Army project intended to use giant airships to defend against cruise missiles.

And while the blimps may never stave off a barrage of enemy missiles, their ability to spot and track cars, trucks and boats hundreds of miles away is raising serious privacy concerns.

The project is called JLENS – or “Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System.” And you couldn’t come up with a better metaphor for wildly inflated defense contracts, a ponderous Pentagon bureaucracy, and the U.S. surveillance leviathan all in one.

Built by the Raytheon Company, the JLENS blimps operate as a pair. One provides omnipresent high-resolution 360-degree radar coverage up to 340 miles in any direction; the other can focus on specific threats and provide targeting information.

Technically considered aerostats, since they are tethered to mooring stations, these lighter-than-air vehicles will hover at a height of 10,000 feet just off Interstate 95, about 45 miles northeast of Washington, D.C., and about 20 miles from Baltimore. That means they can watch what’s happening from North Carolina to Boston, or an area the size of Texas.

--It could be used to ask for continued funding to make sure that the warming does not get out of hand.--

It's a lot easier to convince people you need to make sure the warming doesn't get out of hand when you're faking scenes of Manhattan under water than reminding people of the very real possibility of it being under 5000 feet of ice.

Most people have no idea we are at this very moment in an ice age and are merely experiencing a typical interglacial period which historically is about due to end.

Iggy,

Totally agree, which was my point. It covers what has happened and gives covers to what "may" happen.
If the human caused warming is enough to prevent an Ice Age, how bad will it be if unabated.

Iggy

--how bad will it be if unabated--

Well, the normal person's reasonable response to that question is it's going to take a lot of warming to counteract a mile thick glacier. Still not sure how that advances windmills and drinking our recycled urine.
The problem they're having is, like the peak oil scam, we're already deep into their predictive period and their predictions are already wrong.
The boy that cried wolf is the fascists and scientismalists worst enemy. I'm surprised his story hasn't been shoved down the memory hole yet.
