“So, Amber Heard is a star in Hollywood.

She exists next to another star called Johnny Depp.

Johnny Depp is a bigger star. Johnny Depp is a powerful star.

Johnny Depp decided to attack a smaller star called Amber Heard.

So, basically, that’s wrong, and it goes against everything that we stand for.”

Remember when commentators were saying that Russia was not fielding its first-rate equipment in Ukraine?

" Russia Just Lost Its Most Advanced Operational Tank In Ukraine
The first confirmed loss of Russia’s most advanced operational tank is another blow to the Russian Army’s eroded image"

I do not understand why Russia struggles economically. They have vast lands for livestock and grain, a wealth of natural resources, and a well-educated population. I assume it must be due to corruption.

‘Top Gun: Maverick’ producer says Darkstar looked so real, China moved spy satellite to see it

Alex Hollings | May 3, 2022

The long-awaited “Top Gun: Maverick” will fly into theaters later this month, and while most of the movie features very real U.S. Navy aircraft, there’s one exotic platform aviation buffs might not recognize: the hypersonic Darkstar.

Darkstar may not be a real airplane, but it certainly looks the part—so much so that the Navy apparently told Top Gun’s producer, legendary filmmaker Jerry Bruckheimer, that China re-oriented spy satellites to get a glimpse of the full-size mock-up they built for filming.

The War For Globalism In Ukraine
MAY 4, 2022 by DOUGLAS MACGREGOR

Washington actively cultivated Ukraine’s war with Russia for many years, harnessing Ukrainian nationalism—the incendiary force globalists claim to loathe—in service to their cause. It worked. Now the same globalists are prolonging the war with arms, advice, and encouragement, even though Ukraine is being destroyed.

An update on the bubarooni family:

The Boy turned down engineering at Purdue and architecture at Ball State. He's going to go to I.U. at the Luddy School of Informatics.

Engineering was where I was steering him but we are only about 8 miles from I.U. so he'll be around close which makes his Mom very, very happy.

He got something called a 'Direct Admit' to the school which is apparently good and he got admitted to the Hutton Honors College too. I.U. offered the most money hands down as well. If he stays in Luddy all four years they are basically paying for half his college costs each year. Because of how close we live, he could actually live at home and save the other half but he wants 'the full college experience' (whatever that means...) and will live on campus instead.

The other 'Big Thing' for me is my Sig Other and I bought my Mom's floor covering business last Octoberish. I had broached the topic here one time and got some great input from peeps here on this board.

Anyway, I'm now a 'small businessman'. Honestly, I'm more of a 'silent partner' as my wife runs the business while I remain toiling away in the salt mines as an 'IT Guy' for the company I've worked at for the last 21 years. I do get a quarterly profit sharing check that will more than pay for the boys other half of the tuition. And his sisters too.

I will tell you when we bought the company, which Mom sold to us for less than a third of assessed value, gas was 2ish dollars a gallon, interest rates where ridiculously low and it seemed the purchase was a no brainer... well things have changed a bit and I'm a bit nervous over taking the plunge.

I.U. does seem to be flush with Covid Cash though (our biggest customer) and we are raking in cash from the out of state property developers here in Bloomington. Checks roll in from New Jersey, New York and Chicago on a weekly basis and I hope that continues.

20 years ago in Bloomington, the Big Money came from the locals. Some lady with 30 house rentals or a group of local business peeps building 100 apartments a few blocks from campus.

Now it's some corporation or private entity from Connecticut building 250 rentals off campus. Or New Jersey. Or New York. Chicago.

There is a place just west of the stadium with 850 rental units going up. They literally bought up blocks of those old single homes on plots the townies owned and rented out to students for decades and razed them to the ground.

Now a building, it's a 6 story monstrosity to be honest, spans all those blocks in a single, uninterrupted conglomeration of steel, concrete and sheetrock broken only by the only occasional 4 story, concrete parking garage inhabitated by license plates from Cali, New York, New Jersey, Chicago and Connecticut.

On Tuesday, some guys came in looking for transitions strips (I dunno look it up...) and willing to pay whatever. They were from the big 850 unit place going up. From Jersey and all Portugese.

Bloomington has changed significantly change over the last 20 years...

jim_nj, I’ll populate the links slowly, including more essays and editorials from the past that seem still relevant.

sbwaters

MM, postmodernism is a stealth crime that steals civility. People will “feel” you are overreacting until they see it for themselves.

That’s one reason for the website’s samizdat Twitter links. They serve as a daily reminder that they don’t respect you.

From Individuals, Journalism, and Society:
“... Premises, warrants, evidence, and conclusions are tools that can be used to come to understanding but that are more often used to bludgeon you into submission. Language does matter. Author William Gass said we use words to club the living into food.”

“So we have to defend ourselves against misuse of language.”

“The game today is to assassinate people with words and confuse others along the way.”
