Re: White people enslave dogs tweet.

I made a 30 second "Paint" image, posted it as a reply (it garnered a whopping 10 "likes" - my humour is as poor as my creativity) and some bugger reported me for hateful content. Amazingly enough, the drones at Twatter didn't find it offensive and have allowed it to stand.

The offending tweet in all its hateful glory:



Seriously, some people have zero sense of humour.

Youall might not know this one. It just cracks me up. This is the song the admiral teaches the sailors.... and this is after the admiral insists that when giving orders an officer must say "If you please"



[Verse 1: Ralph, Boatswain and Carpenter together]
A British tar is a soaring soul,
As free as a mountain bird,
His energetic fist should be ready to resist
A dictatorial word.

[Chorus]
(Ralph, Boatswain and Carpenter singing a round)
His nose should pant,
And his lip should curl,
His cheeks should flame,
And his brow should furl,
His bosom should heave,
And his heart should glow,
And his fist be ever ready for a knock-down blow.

(Ralph, Boatswain and Carpenter together, much faster now)
His nose should pant,
And his lip should curl,
His cheeks should flame,
And his brow should furl,
His bosom should heave,
And his heart should glow,
And his fist be ever ready for a knock-down blow.

[Verse 2: Ralph, Boatswain and Carpenter together]
His eyes should flash with an inborn fire,
His brow with scorn be wrung;
He never should bow down
to a domineering frown,
Or the tang of a tyrant tongue.

Iowa agency director asked to resign day after emailing Tupac lyrics to all 4,300 department employees

Iowa Human Services Director Jerry Foxhoven frequently sent such messages to various employees praising Tupac’s musical work, but was asked by Gov. Kim Reynolds (R) to resign last month after he sent the agencywide email.

The AP ... was given 350 pages worth of emails with the words “Tupac” or “2Pac” sent to and from Foxhoven during his two-year tenure at the helm of Iowa’s Department of Human Services....

For years, Foxhoven hosted weekly “Tupac Fridays” where he would play the rapper’s music in the office. He also brought Shakur-themed cookies to the office to celebrate his 65th birthday, some with the iconic phrase “Thug life” written on them....

He said he sent the email in an attempt to break down racist stereotypes about rap music.

Good luck with your gig. Sounds great. Don't let the universe (including sick parents) stop you from going after this.

I can't understand why CNN is still the network of choice at hospitals and airports. It is complete crap.... but there are not many options. MSNBC or Fox? I don't think so. It makes me feel like someone could start a small cable channel that is called something like "Only Headlines"..... "The Oh!" You could design it so there is an announcer, but mostly it will focus on the video only. In between the headlines you could add a cat or dog video just to get a chuckle in. It actually sounds pretty great to me.

Sorry about your girl's folks. Getting old is not pretty. Luckily, my old man made enough money to get decent care (even in America). My mom (92 yo) and dad (93 yo) are in independent care and they have a helper that puts in 50 hours a week with them. My siblings complain about my dad all the time and make my mom out to be a saint.... and they forget that he is the one that saved a million dollars before he retired (as a small business owner). Getting old with no money in the bank is total shit.

My dad's memory is so bad he forgets I am married... etc. He forgets that he has been in the dinning room at the care place every day....etc. I took him to lunch like I always do and he says.... "Oh... I've never been here before!" and I will say "Well, let's try it.... it looks pretty good."

Crazy siblings... I got that too. I help them all the time, but you have to put on limits or they suck the life out of you.

Monday was good. I fasted and had a work out and said to myself... "I need everybody to get the fuck out of my head. Get out of my head". So, I listened to HMS Pinafore, and did my workout, and laughed and laughed. Too bad the English aren't funny anymore. "and he never says the big big 'D'!.. what never?...no never... what never?.... well.... hardly ever! Hardly ever says the big big "D"!

Anyway... good luck!

This just in: an oh-so-woke "best of the Web" link aggregator is actually a hotbed of covert white supremacy.

When the site's owner begs for yet more donations, because he's spending $33,000 a month, most of it on the salary of seven moderators working shifts 24/7 deleting wrong speak, the membership brainstorms as to why so many have left the site, and so few have recently signed on. Then it's revealed: the super-woke site is in decline because it “is full of effective white supremacists”:
...the kind of effective white supremacists that are against racism in theory but won’t do anything to help, and in fact will see discussion about racism as taking up space / exhausting / patronizing. [....] These days, if you’re not actively thinking about race, you’re probably racist. And if you’re discouraging being less racist because it’s “exhausting”, or you critique it by saying ‘the tone should be better’ without actively doing anything to continue or support conversations about race, you’re probably definitely a white supremacist.

When a woke whitey woman responds,
I work in Diversity & Inclusion [...] I also chair an allyship group, and organize fund raisers for groups that help underrepresented minorities. [....] I understand that I am a white person in Western civilization, and as such will always be a part of systemic racism.

And at the end of the day, I want to come home and read something nice about cats being stuck in scanners without being called a white supremacist for it. [...] -- but if you're wondering why this site has fewer users than ever, maybe consider that there is a whole world out there, offline and online, where people are making a difference and that doesn't involve performative Doing The Work on [this site].

The original commenter (plus several others who are not quoted) excommunicates woke whitey woman from the Church of Progressive Righteousness:
This is a horrifying comment, a kind of total entitlement. I cannot believe this is real. It's like a caricature of white fragility and white supremacy and white entitlement! [....] how incredibly entitled, tone-deaf this is. [...] I am blown away and utterly saddened by so many comments by so many posters that are actively making it harder for IBPOC[*] here.


Unfortunately, the thread never reaches any conclusions as to why they're losing members. If only we could figure that out!

Another choice morsel of progressive revelation, from the same thread: "Complaint is an effective way of working against, of pushing on the idea that joy is attainable in an inequitable world, or that joy is worthy, or even moral."

Plus, lots of talk about Social Justice "101" versus "201" "education".

The entire thread (1263 comments, until some are deleted as heretical) is incredibly long but oh-so-important, an amazing snapshot of the "friendly fire" and collateral cannibalistic carnage in the trenches of Social Justice Warfare.

If that's not enough, you can additionally Educate Yourself with their latest thread (this one limited to comments by POC only) on what makes the site so horribly white and racist.

That huge nyc blackout a few days ago... had zero effect on me. I might as well have been reading headlines from Timbuktu.

An hour ago... a gossipy app which provides alerts about nearby crime... said there were 3 people with guns in the smoke shop right downstairs.
Police responded, the app said. I had no idea that was happening. I didn't even get up to look out the window.

Likewise, internet journalism & tv news channels-- eagerly announced a RACEWAR between Trump and Pelosi and ICE and 4 antifa congresscunts.

But I was busy with Other Shit...

DAY 1
my oriental gf takes care of her elderly parents. Her mom fell in the bathroom. I had to go lift her up. Later she was too weak to get off the toilet. I had to lift her onto ambulance stretcher. She'll never get to return home. From now on: emergency room->rehab->places-where-old-people-go-until-they-die GF went along in the ambulance & had to miss a japanese streetwear magazine photoshoot, she was supposed to oversee. Photographer said he could handle it alone. Just one teen black boy model. 3 changes of clothes. I went along, like a golf caddy-- carrying the garment bag & suggesting interesting locations to take pictures.

Meanwhile, at the hospital, GF gets a call from friend of a friend... in LA. A celebrity is launching a cosmetic or fashion line or something-- and GF + me were recommended to be the local NYC leads for the promotional-launch-event-thingie. Would be a big step-up in my paygrade. Unlike most gigs, this celebrity is someone I've actually heard-of & think highly of.

https://66.media.tumblr.com/438724202a4 ... o1_400.gif

DAY 2
All day, CNN scrollbar across bottom of muted hospital TV-- assures me The Trumps Racist Tweet Racewar of 2019 is still the Most Important Thing. GF takes a call about the promo-event-job. In between meetings with doctor's assistant & social worker & rep from an old folks home-- drumming up business in the hospital ward. GF's sisters are there-- one a high-powered exec, smart but with severe ADD like an 80's yuppie cokehead. The other a flakey aging-hipster who sez kratom got her off opioids. (But really she does both). The flakey one has grandiose ideas about elderly dad giving up the apartment & moving in with her (so she can stop paying 1/3 of parents' rent & instead demand $ from the other 2 sisters). Plus renting out the apartment as Air B&B. (Which I have been drafted to run, in her mind.) Plus, whenever hospital staff stop by old mom's room-- flakey one blathers about herself & all her made-up ailments... and all her very-real knowledge of various painkillers. I silently wonder if she's ruining her mother's chance of being prescribed strong drugs. Will the staff be worried that daughter will steal the pills?

The day grew long. Back at home, I looked at the promo-event-job internal strategy documents. Realized the design of the thing is wide-open... as long as I meet their vague checklist of elements... I'm free to be a frickin Artiste... & design a weird artsy interior space for the event. Like I'm Warhol or Banksy or... Kanye! I'm intimidated by the opportunity. But maybe I should devote my attention to the trump racewar news instead.

Fuck. I wuz joking around... but I was RIGHT...
"Symbionese" concept
In his manifesto "Symbionese Liberation Army Declaration of Revolutionary War & the Symbionese Program", Donald DeFreeze wrote, "The name 'symbionese' is taken from the word symbiosis and we define its meaning as a body of dissimilar bodies and organisms living in deep and loving harmony and partnership in the best interest of all within the body."[1] The political symbiosis DeFreeze describes means the unity of all left-wing struggles, feminist, anti-racist, anti-capitalist, and others. DeFreeze wanted all races, genders, and ages to fight together in a left-wing united front, and to live together peacefully.[2]
....

The SLA formed as a result of the prison visitation programs of the radical left-wing group Venceremos Organization and a group known as the Black Cultural Association in Soledad prison.
....
The 1976 film Network features a Maoist insurgent group, the Ecumenical Liberation Army. Although the film distinguishes it from the SLA, it is plainly a parody of the group and its relationship with the television business.[40][41] Over the course of the film, the ELA kidnaps an heiress and reeducates her into the group, robs a bank, and negotiates with the titular network for its own prime-time program, The Mao Tse-Tung Hour.

When did you hear of slave owners:

1) Lifting a steaming mound of freshly dumped shit after the slave, whilst maintaining eye contact, grunted it out onto the floor?

2) Fighting off slaves who constantly try to hump his leg?

3) Nearly freeze to death because the slaves steal the quilt off the bed in the middle of the night even though the slave owner has made it abundantly clear the bedroom is out of bounds?

4) Constantly has to wash the quilt cover(s) because - see 3) above?

5) Has to guard his plate because the slaves don't understand what "gerroff my food, y'buggers" means?

I could go on but I need to go outside and grab some fresh air. The slaves, currently stretched out in front of the fire, have been farting all night and the fumes are making me light headed.

Slaves?

I'm sure multiple governments have agents inside tech companies. They hire whoever they can get and a large percentage of engineering staff are foreign born. So it would be easy to have an agent get a job or find someone already employed to pay off. I doubt they have strong controls over data access, so it is probably not too hard to access data from the inside.

A better way is to have people at the western company's offices in China. Here is what I think Hauwei does: let the western companies hire new college graduates and train them (while they learn the western company's technology) and then hire them after a few years. I know of one case, and I'm sure there are many others.

I meant to say, if you get the chance, take a wee trip to the Ptarmigan restaurant:

https://visitcairngorms.com/dbeatdrinks ... n/180.html

Even though it's currently closed for the season (see website), there are some very scenic (and easy-going) trails up to and around the area. I used to run MLT courses up there - Mountain Leader Training (teaching experienced climbers how to plan/conduct minor expeditions with groups of chimps in tow) - it's a very beautiful part of the country and you'll not regret spending a day there. Obviously, you'll want to prepare for the trip - plenty of hydration, warm clothes, waterproofs (it's Scotland - "soaking" is the default state) and a coms-plan just in case you have an ackie-dent.

https://static.wixstatic.com/media/a54a ... cd~mv2.jpg

Also worth a visit - Aviemore. However, be warned, it's pretty expensive (tourism and all that) but has a few nice venues for shopping, eating and grabbing a refreshing hangover. There used to be an excellent little inn on the outskirts, I think it was called "The Salmon Leap" (can't find an online footprint), you could sit out on the back balcony and eat/drink whilst watching dirty great salmon trying to hoof themselves up a little waterfall ten feet from your table.

It's all very interesting. Slate just published an article saying that the four congresswomen are "sensible, mainstream centrists":

https://slate.com/news-and-politics/201 ... tream.html

Polling proves it!

So there are two opposite stories:

1) Trump is attacking four sensible, mainstream centrists that everyone agrees with, costing him votes.

2) Trump is making the Democrats synonymous with four unpopular left-wing extremists, costing them votes.

I'm always surprised at the number of commenters are Jerry's who believe in story #1.

I think the reality is closer to #2 because most journalists exist in a small bubble of people who believe #1.
Given that Slate's writing staff is largely composed of hard left authors who consider themselves to be pragmatic centrists, their argument is unsurprising. Over the last 4-5 years they've gone from being my go-to center-left opinion journalism source to the loony left cornfield alongside the likes of Salon, HuffPo, and Vox. I think it dates to the beginning of the rise of identity politics, rather than anything to do with the 2016 election. Concomitantly, their writing staff has become very disproportionately LGBT, which is a reflection of where their ideological hiring priorities lie.
Yeah, I have read Slate since it started. It has slowly moved left, although they think everyone else has moved right. The UVA rape case era was where I started reading the comments for laughs. I think the issue with Slate and with journalism in general is that the cheapest writers tend to be young women in New York or San Francisco. The funny thing is that no one can live on the salary that online places pay so they either have rich parents or a rich boyfriend/husband. But it is a bubble. So they think they are in the majority because "everyone they know" agrees with them, not realizing that they are part of a very small slice of the population.

Vancouver Island is loaded with beautiful scenery and greenery. You could live a long life and hike a different trail or fish a different spot every day for a lifetime. I can't think of anywhere in the world I'd rather live.
If you google images for Strathcona provincial park or Pacific Rim National Park you can get a glance of what I mean.
Paradise!

It's stunning during the warmer months but I'm a cold weather freak - some of the winter pictures are really making my feet itch!

That steel-grey sky is simply beautiful. Nothing compares to a biting wind, snow underfoot and clean/crisp air. Not joking, if I didn't have my family ties here, I'd up-sticks right now.

AOC was jewish in front of the jewish audience...

nytimes:
The announcement seemed to delight the Queens synagogue celebrating Hanukkah, according to video of the event. Amid laughter, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez replied to someone in the crowd. “He’s like: ‘I told you! I knew it! I sensed it!”
And black down south...


and "decendants of native people"...


but seriously folks she's mexican because they don't know the difference between toilets and sinks and garbage disposals :rimshot:

Well, me and Mrs L are heading back to the UK on Weds, first time in five years for me. We land at LHR at 7.10 on Thursday, have a seven-hour layover (we'll pop into town), then hoots mon, it's off tae Inverness, where my sister and her husband run a hotel in the Cairngorms NP.

Back to London for a few days, to a VRBO in Hampstead, then out to Essex where my oldest buddy - I've known him since '71 - is getting married for the first time two months before his 60th.
