As is well known at the race track, Money Talks, Bull Dust Walks. And defunding the police might mean simply smaller police forces--or it may mean citizen funded security patrols since the cops aren't there any more. Or it may mean that henceforth suburban homes will be insured by Messrs. Smith & Wesson, Ruger or Colt. Maybe get a little European Help from Signor Beretta.

What does it mean that a smart guy like TM can countenance the thought of
a) senile Joe in charge
b) proven propagandists like CNN/NBC/NYT/etc are in charge of info delivery
c) the viewpoint of 60,000,000 people cannot be expressed at college grad ceremonies
d) senile MaligNancy is 3rd from the nuke button
e) this list of bad outcomes extends ad infinitum

How is it possible that Trump plus Grenell hobbled by GOPe to the point that they can't fire Pres staffers, can't get staff nominees confirmed, and so on, how is it possible for Trump to be worse than the list above?

Well, it's a tough question. But I'm now used to living with the uncertainty.

KevlarKid

What if "studies" courses were limited to " general electives" status as opposed to "core" major REQUIREMENTS for the fluff crowd?

But, how could we have The Great Society if we didn't dumb it down so EVERY swingin' dick and karen-sky could "feel" included;or, if they are the white snowflake variety, they can "feel" shame and guilt over their "privilege?"/sarc

henry

Kev, sure give them all participation degrees. Just make it clear that a degree does not equal status. Status comes from value provided to society. More of that in farming, trades, or manufacturing than in “studies.”

Willowed...

have read two comments in this thread that disturb me. The first was a reference to Ezekiel Emmanuel as our own Mengele, and now another reference to Rosenswine. This is really offensive to me. Comparing Jews to the Nazis.

We are better than this

Zeke openly writes of his desire that people he deems insufficiently worthy of life should die at an age of his choosing, and had he the power, he would carry out that desire.

That is flat-out Nazi thinking. I don’t care if he’s Newish, I don’t care what his faith is. If he wants to implement a Nazi program, then Nazi comparisons are absolutely fair game.

Truly stunning that lockstep should emerge from prog philosophy. Kuhn on science paradigm shift, or Latour on rhetorical argument in shifting / defending paradigm seem at odds with Foucault and his Panopticon. Why does Foucault win here, instead of questioning authority, we are to be monitored and controlled by it? Polanyi and tacit knowledge seems and out, we know better but can’t verbalize, then Rorty vs pragmatism and throwing away what we know works. Mao’s little red book? That was stupid 40 years ago when I read it in Spence’s class. But that is where the MSM and Dems are today. They are the authority and we dare not question it.

https://spectator.org/general-mattis-is-wrong/
The Spectator makes the case that Mattis is wrong, very wrong.

The President is NOT flouting the Constitution, and Matthis is just going to go around DC telling everyone at cocktail parties that Trump isn't obeying the Constitution, mainly because he (Matthis) isn't in charge.

“hermetically sealed bag with 300 rounds”

I buy in lots of 1000.

When the rumors that the violence would be brought to the ‘burbs started, I loaded up the rifle mags. Don’t be afraid to crack that bag, that ammo will last.

Go to your neighborhood surplus shop and get a .30 cal ammo can with a decent seal. Better storage than the bag.

henry

Ig, in WWII during the build up to DDay, my grandfather reported to Marshall that the invasion troops had more ammo than they could carry. Further, the convoys would bring ammo faster than they shot it. Bedell Smith took his star for that (Marshall gave it back). My grandfather (and math) were right. Having a “supply dump” separate from today’s needs is a good thing. Ext might require another (dozen) 300 rd sealed packs, but a 20 for range use now and then makes sense.

I think Turchin's hypothesis is interesting. From my vantage point, I think when things are peaceful and prosperous for a while, people just get soft and stupid and ridiculous notions fill their lazy heads.

Posted by: Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA | June 08, 2020 at 07:06 PM

If I can direct your attention to the right you'll notice Tom has a special section devoted to the Plame fiasco, an earlier example of the deep state conducting lawfare against a Republican administration without an underlying crime. As I recall TM was all over that mess early, and obviously followed it extensively. The fact that there was no crime (Armitage leaked the name) didn't matter to him. He excitedly covered the maneuvers to destroy the administration. I found it quite maddening at the time.

I guess what I'm trying to say is I'm not too surprised by his recent posts, and the gnashing of the teeth it seems to be causing. I've assumed he had a soft spot for the deep state since at least 2004.

Mystic,

I agree with you - except I like Laura Ingraham a lot. I have Fox Biz on all day - in the background - and I’m a big fan of Maria and Lou Dobbs.

Manuel Transmission

Ext, as a good benchmark for .223 ammo, I use $.30/round. That’s sort of a running average for 1000 round cases. I’ve seen it as low as $.27 without any of the crap brands being considered and maybe up to $.35 in times like these, assuming you can even get it. It’s one of the reasons I generally avoid playing with the heavier stuff like .308, not to mention recoil.

Mystic

Ha Jane! I like LAura too, but....she’s on a little late for me! Im an early to bed, early to rise kind of gal.

henry

Soylent, I shoot 30-06 in my deer rifle. Have friends in NE that give me ammo faster than I shoot it (I help them with production). They are backlogged up the wazoo in good times. The usual spots(SportsmansGuide, etc) might have bulk, but supply is spotty. That said, demand is lower than .223, so who knows? My AR pattern doodad is 308. I have a couple thousands rounds, so haven’t looked lately.

BTW, I have 30-06 brass if you reload. Not a lot, but it needs Togo to a happy place.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but you just made that up.

"Antifaschistische Aktion" ("Antifa" for short) were Germans who brawled with Nazis in the early 1930s. but cool story, Jack, coming down *against* the people who fought Nazis is kind of on-brand for today's GOP.


Some German guys did something. The bleeting little commie of course knows the original antifa just like the present one was made up of communist party members. In fact the German Communist party was completely controlled by the Comintern in Moscow throughout Weimar. So yeah the GOP fighting Stalinists is kind of on brand, just as hiding that the creeps he praises and supports are Stalinists is on brand for Dems.
Sometimes I wish I did twitter to bloody commie pygmy noses like his.

COVID-19 Has Properties That Have Never Been Found In Nature Before

Norwegian and British vaccine scientists have published [via Cambridge] unequivocal evidence that SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus responsible for the COVID-19 pandemic, is man-made.

The authors state two conclusions: (1) the mutations that would normally be seen in the course of animal to human transmission have not occurred in SARS-CoV-2, indicating that it was fully “pre-adapted” for human infection and (2) SARS-CoV-2 has insertions in its protein sequence that have never been detected in nature and contribute to its infectivity and pathogenicity.

On Monday's Mark Levin Show, if NFL fans are systemically racist like Roger Goodell says, then people should want nothing to do with the league. If these professional sports owners and athletes think America has racist DNA then we should abandon the NFL, NBA, and the like. If we are racist then Goodell should step down and let an African American take his job. Interestingly, many of these sports-millionaire's specifically choose not to live in the communities that are being plagued by poor Democrat policies, like Watts, Harlem, or the South Side of Chicago and it’s not because they hate the police — it's because these hypocrites don't want to live in neighborhoods with high crime rates.

The NFL made a Faustian bargain with television. It's success depended on having a commissioner who made it his highest priority to have the league be an integral part of the fabric of society. That worked well under Pete Rozelle, where the league outgained all the other sports in being identified with the country in the fans eyes. Unfortunately his successors, particularly the present one, don't share his values. As a result, the ESPN types are in the cultural driver's seat. What Goodell, a very weak person, has said recently comes right from their script. This is why I've ignored the league for three seasons and the NBA's next.

Boy became Eagle this evening. Parking lot full, all tuned to an FM channel; I got a red rose; he got the badge, scarf, a lot of paper (including a commendation from the NE Secretary of State, which I gather is standard), a beautiful new folded U.S. flag, and a great staff--his dad and I think the latter should be used, not just saved, but he is at the moment enamoured of its shininess. He keeps walking around saying "now I'm really an Eagle." My favorite moment was when all the Eagles there (grown men in their cars) left their cars to stand and say the Eagle pledge--there were a lot of them! It was all pretty moving. God bless the good men (and women) who keep it all going, despite the many, many flaws of the national organization (I feel roughly the same about the Episcopal church).
