Standard socialism. Hamstring the winners so we all suck together.

Captain Hate

Having top schools become less selective is going full Costanza.


The hoops coastal types have to jump through to make sure their kids get a good education is something I am glad I didn't have to suffer.


And Messi to start the half.

Trumps base needs fortifying with home-schooled dolts.

Get out teh voat!


Who was favored in this match?

I spend a lot of time figuring out ways to "opt out":)


Magnificent equalizer by France. 2-2


Ralph - I had to look up "How bats sleep" then I laughed. I'm starting to think this is from some anti-bug thing I put on my hibiscus yesterday (without gloves, like a bloody fool). The print is so small I can't read the instructions. I need a 12 year old around.

Captain Hate

For all the open borders propaganda in the public extended day care union shops, let them get wind of someone from outside the district attending classes and they'll make ICE look like the Welcome Wagon.

Beasts of England

You really have to admire the left. They got schlonged in 2016 on immigration and now their new plank is to abolish ICE!! lol


And France again! 3-2


Yesterday I got a flyer in the mail from United States Postal Service.

They want us to know that there is an app now available that allows you to get information on what will be delivered in the mail on a daily basis.

Images of the shipping label of every item that will be delivered.

Am I being cynical to think that this means the info associated with every piece of mail is now a Big Data entry?

Better to track the peons preferences, associations, connections?

Will NRA members (I probably get a mailing every other week) be the first to have their firearms confiscated when the Dems are again in power, etc.?


France again! 4-2


From the Week In Pictures comments.


Reposting. jim_nj commented but it was late so I'm hoping a lawyer or two will comment. Seems noteworthy
H/T BJG blog:

"(From Justice) Thomas’s travel ban opinion, he seems eager to have someone bring a case before him challenging ‘universal injunctions’ by lower district court judges."


I suspect Thomas wants judges to stop making lAWS, but I didn't read it.

Argentina in extra time! 4-3 France.


France advances. Fun game.

Hello Newman

"Images of the shipping label of every item that will be delivered."

It's called "Informed Delivery" and the USPS has been scanning and recording mail for years. Currently it is only letter sized mail; oversized envelops and packages aren't included (yet). It may be limited to certain cities and it is not done for PO Boxes but they are working on it (it would actually be nice for po boxes if you trust the Feds not to pry or store it for years).

The scanning is done whether you sign up for the service or not. They will email you the scans each morning (assuming you have mail that day). And I believe the checks on identity are a little weak when you sign up so others may already be looking at your scans. And I believe if you move you need to request to discontinue the service (unless you want to look at the new owner's mail).

There are big ads on DC metro buses advertising the tip line to report “student residency fraud”




I confess I was unaware that the rial has dropped 40% in value. Odd that this hasn’t been more widely reported:
The rial has lost 40 per cent of its value since last month, when President Donald Trump pulled out of Iran’s 2015 nuclear accord and announced draconian sanctions on Tehran.

These include an attempt to shut down the international sale of Iranian oil, Tehran’s main source of revenue, a threat that has cast a chill over the economy.
The full impact of Trump’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal and Washington’s move to stop foreign countries from doing business with Iran, may not be clear for months.

Isn't it?


Dana Milbank has a panic attack in the WaPo

>>>Now Republicans will seize their solid fifth vote on the court without pause or compunction. But how long do they think they can sustain this? What happens when Roe is overturned?

The backlash is coming. It is the deserved consequence of minority-rule government protecting the rich over everybody else, corporations over workers, whites over nonwhites and despots over democracies. It will explode , God willing, at the ballot box and not in the streets.

You can only ignore the will of the people for so long and get away with it.<<<

henry - Any idea why Argentina didn't play Sergio Aguero more up front with Messi for the majority of their matches?
Aguero is dynamite in the box, and Messi seemed wasted playing back so close to mid-field, rather than up front to set up Aguero and others.
[from my limited perspective, of course]

Also, all First Class packages and Priority Mail packages have tracking numbers which show where the package originated, progress through sorting facilities, and where and when it was delivered.

If you are an eBay or Etsy business, those web sties ALSO store that information.

((There are big ads on DC metro buses advertising the tip line to report “student residency fraud”))

That HAS to be a problem here in Arlington too. I personally knew 2 kids that did it. They listed their Uncle's residence in Arlington as their home.

One family member in the city & the whole clan goes to school here.
Explain to me how some clerk in Arlington knows who is who. Are they even allowed to question?... or is it self-certification?

JimNorCal, In the initial article, AP did not report Justice Thomas’ concurring opinion.

Scanning the PDF of the decision, that was the first thing that jumped out at me so I added it near the top of our article.

While you were covering the match here I was doing the same on the old thread which I didn't know was passé until I kept refreshing and only my last comment kept coming up:)

Let see if I have this right:This is the 2018 Mid Term Democrat Platform.

1. Open Borders
2. Shit Can ICE
3. Create Special Restaurant and Water Fountain accommodations for Republicans only.
4. Gun Control or Total Elimination
5. No Heterosexual Bakeries.

Looks like a winning platform to me.

If the Democratic Party wins the 2020 election, it will have won the most votes in 7 out of the 8 previous national elections. Adding six members to create a fifteen-member Court, which would still have 5 GOP-appointed members, is actually incredibly generous to the Republicans.

Jim Eagle


If anything the Left is relentless, like the Eveready Bunnie. That is why Trump keeps them busy on trivial stuff, so they don't have time to do real damage.

Very astute observation. My only fear is that Trump will burn himself out.

Love the Nooo from the husky, MM--so funny. Loved Sad Cat of last thread too. And RalphL's bat comment for Jane also made me bark with laughter. You guys are great. All total, not as funny as the Horde, but then they go brutal pretty quickly--we are (generally) more genteel (a CH intervention is always worth sitting up for, however).

Catching up:

Cap’n: we probably can’t get down to SC much before 8/16. If we can entice Elliott, JNC, and exdem to join KK, that would be an awesome S. Bay rendezvous. We could reciprocate with the mountain folk by stopping in Auburn on our way back north, if DrJ and Iggy aren’t up for the much longer trek.

Chiggers: the key, as Nene recommends, is the clear nail polish. BUT it is to suffocate the little buggers. They live in the bite and migrate! I had a Chinese colleague at Ginormous Research who worked a project with me in the Deep South of southern Ahia. He picked up a batch of them that lasted over a year in spite of boiling clothes, bedding etc.

I got BANNED from Ace's site! That is the God's honest truth!

I came here because a friend who was a lurker thought this might be a site I liked.

I knew Captain Hate from Ace's place. I still read some of the threads over there, but as far as I know I am blocked from posting. Ha!


Man Tran,

I'd love to see you up here! Sadly, for a lot of reasons, I'm not travelling at the moment, even to the Bay Area.

Miss Marple

Man Tran,

I got this info from my BIL this morning, who got it from my grandpa when he used to take the high school Sportsmen's Club hunting back in the 1950's.

Chiggers are located in an area sweeping from the Deep South to Ohio. There are no chiggers in Illinois, which is why you can hunt pheasant there.

Pheasant will not live in areas with chiggers.

reposting what landed late on the dying thread--- following up on a comment from MM. not blaming you for anything, MM, but people are reading the exchanges from yesterday way after the fact and prescribing such and such for moving forward.

Here is what I posted.

"I am NOT trying to bring up yesterday's dispute again. There IS some interesting info in this article." (MM)

i will. because the dispute isn't about Rosita Rosenstein.

for me, yesterday's dispute centered not around white sombrero/black sombrero.

jim-nj nailed it in his post from the night shift: i repost this now in order to bring some daylight disinfectant to the reactivity from yesterday by people who were "tired" of the arguing etc.

it's a worthy read. it's a fair "adjudication" of things without all the allegations of grown men being valley girls, waving our genitals, acting like Thelma and Louise blah blah blah, gun metaphors etc, and storming off to pout.

i will leave this here.
here goes: (from jim-nj)

"Kevlar Kid and Gus, you know we're brothers, please give Tom R the benefit of the doubt. Tom R., I am interested in your links and thoughts, I even understand your idea of putting forth your ideas and seeing if you need to revise them based on feedback.

But modify your mode of engagement, it's not productive, Gus and Kevlar are esteemed members of JOM. I respect Kevlar Kid and Gus immensely. I respect you too.

Also understand that most of us here have the Firefox Killfile extension and we can can block comments like Eye Doctor's, or for that matter anyone else's.

Rule of thumb, we only block trolls, like Eye Doctor, and the sh-t wad who keeps changing his logon.

Tom R get killfile installed, ignore Eye Doctor, never compare him to anyone else here, it's an insult. Block the other trolls too, if you don't, you miss the essence of the thread.

So, Tom R, I appreciate you wanting to validate your ideas, or have them refuted for further consideration, but badgering people who don't agree is not useful.

You get one chance only to make your point. Secondary or tertiary arguments should be in your original arguments, not as ripostes.

My two cents worth. We have other adversaries more worthy of our scrutiny."

Thank you for this, jim-nj.

Protest/rally today in downtown Berkeley city park... "Keeping Families Together."

Mrs Kid just texted that she's going to check it ou to "see what they're saying."

Acknowledged. Then cautioned her to keep her head on a swivel for false flag violence in order to blame Trumpists.

Her reaction to my caution was abject SHOCK. "Would they really do that?"

I told her what UC indoctrination chief, Robbie Reich, said after the Antifa riot up there turned violent "It was Breitbart. Breitbart was here."

I never pushed the Republicans in the House to vote for the Immigration Bill, either GOODLATTE 1 or 2, because it could never have gotten enough Democrats as long as there is the 60 vote threshold. I released many prior to the vote knowing we need more Republicans to win in Nov.

"The backlash is coming. It is the deserved consequence of minority-rule government protecting the rich over everybody else, corporations over workers, whites over nonwhites and despots over democracies. It will explode , God willing, at the ballot box and not in the streets."

Milbank is correct, but not in the way he believes.

#WalkAway: the Left will be losing their "youth vote" en masse.

that's my prediction.

why? "it was harder for me to come out as a conservative to my friends than it was to come out as a gay man" (former Obama voter).

"i saw that the Left is not for equal opportunity, is fighting for equal outcomes. my family came from a socialist country and *that* is the big con--- it's why my entire family has to #WalkAway."

not representative of all the changeover, but it speaks to one of the more deeply held shibboleths of the Left: "You owe us your vote because we stood up for you."

the Republic is in crisis. but there is a sea-change in allegiances that resembles an offshore tsunami headed against the Left.

News from my other hometown. Did our dog lovers not hear about the story of Toffee the deaf puppy who was reduced from the 60' crevice?

The Daily Mail picked up the story:


Gird Thy Loins

But they had a connection, one Mr. Trump was quick to note in the moments after his first address to Congress in February 2017. As he made his way out of the chamber, Mr. Trump paused to chat with the justice.

“Say hello to your boy,” Mr. Trump said. “Special guy.”

Mr. Trump was apparently referring to Justice Kennedy’s son, Justin. The younger Mr. Kennedy spent more than a decade at Deutsche Bank, eventually rising to become the bank’s global head of real estate capital markets, and he worked closely with Mr. Trump when he was a real estate developer, according to two people with knowledge of his role.

One cannot expect Kennedy’s perorations about dignity and respect to trump crony capitalism. #sarcasm.
