Nope I was not banned. My heart was crushed by indifference and selected blockings. Hehehee. Worlds smallest violin.

In reality, I decided to embrace change.

I’ve finished my MA (submitted in three weeks), quit my job, lost 12 kg on a keto-esque diet plus exercise, farewelled my son to Oxbridge study and have never been happier ... for now at least.

Even if the world remains a crazy place.

No sane place wants to be a mini California, this is true, at least in terms of social policy. Wanting to do something about climate is not so crazy. I'm a bit concerned about the state of the discussion about the issue in Australia. Perhaps it's better than I think, but if the relentless stupidity out of Sky is anything to go by then things are bad. Almost all of the anti-woke commentators I follow now are including climate change in the general category of woke propaganda. Anti-AGW has now become as much of a cause with the right, even the centre right, as AGW is with the left. Nobody seems to be listening to the scientists anymore, who seem to be saying that the situation is worse than they thought. This is even causing me to seriously consider that maybe it is time for the US to dump Trump. While he is way better than the alternative in so many respects there is only so much gutting of research budgets and promotion of ignorance that can be tolerated.

No one is keen on nuclear weapons but you didn’t have to be an unshaven bull dyke camped outside Greenham Common to make that point. GW has become another opportunity for SJ entryism. Supporting illegal immigration into Europe is now so 2017.

Good lord, I should start charging my wife for the cut and dye job I do for her! Did you know the chemical in hair dye is the same as in C-41 process colour film developer? Ethylene diamine, which we treat carefully in the darkroom and wear gloves to handle, is rubbed into the scalps of grey ladies around the world. Amazing. I still wear rubber gloves.

Washington Post headline:
"The backlash over Ocasio-Cortez’s haircut shows women can’t win when it comes to their appearance, experts say"

Who are their 'experts'? A Jessica Valenti tweet, of course.


1. "This story would never happen to a man", except Obama's dirty-tricks campaign did it to to John Edwards:
https://www.npr.org/sections/politicalj ... tip_c.html
And, Jesus Christ!, after-all the mockery of Trump's hair!... c'mon!

2. Nice of Valenti to admit Ocasio is a coiffed TV Star, not a poor girl from the Bronx

3. She has other options

Holy shit. Really? I used to work in 1hr photo. I recall the fumes from the colour developer being particularly evil. You'd hold you're breath while around it, but you could still feel the miasma irritating the back of your throat.

I was gonna say. She's marketed herself as 'still just Alexandra from the block' all this time, but you don't get to call yourself 'normal' when you can pay $300 for a sodding haircut. The most expensive salons in the city, excluding any additional procedures, is $45 (give or take). I paid $20 for mine last and that was because I had a full length of hair and I wanted to cut it short. If I'd just come in for a trim it would have been cheaper. If Alexandra's cohorts think that $300 is a 'normal' fee (or not out of the ordinary), then maybe they need to reflect on what 'normal' actually means and whether or not their 'normal' is out of touch with the rest of us plebs.

I dated a hairdresser and she'd cut my hair for free. She made me get naked first. I asked her why, and she said to clean off the cut hair easier. I went along with it as it was kinda sexy. She never explained what the ball gag and butt plug were for.

But the hair would stick to her tongue....

I take my Wahl clippers, put the 1/2" attachment on and cut my hair and beard.

I can think of a roundabout way - if Sanders gets the nomination, and picks TG as running mate. He could then pop his clogs, or she could do a Bush 41.

The only response to Climate Change is mitigation. We should do what we can in improve habitats, flood control etc. Why????.... because the Chinese and Indians will NEVER slow their own economies to reduce CO2. If the US, Germany, etc., reduce CO2 through taxes and higher cost energy solutions we will just export industrial production to low cost countries.... countries that make more CO2.

There is no solution. only mitigation.

I agree with a sentiment, but a quick clarification on wording as I've made this mistake in the past as well. In the context of climate change politics, 'mitigation' has come to mean something very different than one would expect from its definition. Mitigation refers to actions that address the causes of climate change, whereas adaptation refers to actions that reduce damage due to climate change. So what you're referring to is adaptation, not mitigation, in the current vernacular. https://www.activesustainability.com/cl ... te-change/

I've watched Silverman's comeback tour-- the Atheist Republic interview, his hour with Sargon, his two hours with Karen Straughan.
As far as I can tell, Silverman does not yet realise how wrong he is.
If he's confident that he is, in fact, now rightheaded... and I'm wrong... fine... I welcome him planting his freak-flag right were he stands. Die on that hill, or thrive. Start a one-man youtube channel or podcast. Continue with his firebrand website & crowdfunding.

BUT-- I think it's nuts for any organization to hire him, in his current form. IF he really-can still deliver a major donor endowment, then sure fine... hire him to do-so.

But I think he pissed away his former brand-- as the angry but presumably-reasonable guy in a suit-- across the table from a relatively-unreasonable opponent, such as Bill O'Reilly. (Even against Vacula, Justin seemed like the edgelord/MRA/more-marginal guy. Silverman was wrong in that dispute-- but his blindspots seemed very mainstream, normie, an-honest-mistake. No longer!) It's no one's fault but his own-- that he can't simply go-back to being the old David Silverman.

Thanks to TMI... Silverman has lost his presumption of credibility. He exposed himself as a muddle-headed mess. In his recent interviews, he occasionally raises his voice in the same-old self-righteous indignation as his Firebrand Atheism antics... but now, half the time, he's raising his voice in desperation-- to claim he's still a feminist, or we should still 'believe women', or other desperate ploys. His attempted-rant against the Falun Gong was cringey & forced.

Forgiving him before he learns to stop sabotaging himself-- will just result in him disappointing you again.

The most even-handed article on California's wildfire crisis I'v read in a while:

California Goes Dark
Multiple factors have led to planned electricity blackouts across the Golden State.



I'm on solar, but two entire counties on either side of me are blacked-out. I need to make groceries, and the truck is below half a tank.

Smells like ammonia, doesn't it? Talking of which, I used to make my own monobath (a single solution development process for B&W film) from ammonia, developer and fixer. Using that in a small washroom with the door shut for darkness was hard on the lungs, but the results were acceptable otherwise. Not a bad trade-off: Peezus smells far worse and his results are shit.

Dated 2015, this pre-referendum documentary gives much of the background to the odd relationship between the UK and the EU. I note also that Peter Hitchens has blossomed considerably since he has no longer been overshadowed by his brother.

Anti-AGW has now become as much of a cause with the right, even the centre right, as AGW is with the left. Nobody seems to be listening to the scientists anymore, who seem to be saying that the situation is worse than they thought. This is even causing me to seriously consider that maybe it is time for the US to dump Trump. While he is way better than the alternative in so many respects there is only so much gutting of research budgets and promotion of ignorance that can be tolerated.
The approach of the AGW-religious is all wrong, and the reason for the polarisation. Demanding generalised "action" is never going to get anywhere. The way to approach it is to make specific, concrete proposals that can have a business and environmental case made. Those individual proposals will be easier to get through and harder to argue against (assuming they are actually well thought out and reasoned, and not just virtue signalling, e.g. plastic straw bans). I regret Australia didn't go the nuclear path. Nuclear instead of coal makes so much sense for Australia.
In order to do all of that one would need to understand that there is a serious problem to solve. The likes of Sky are pushing the hoax, scientific conspiracy and "what sea level rise?" line of bullshit and it appears to be catching on if internet comments amongst conservatives are anything to go by.

It's lovely when the hard left open up and reveal what they really would like to be able to do.

Australia and California are alike in many ways. And now also in being ruined by the same lunatic ideology.

Another execution by another cop.

Maybe the cop will go for the Guyger defense and claim that he and his fellow gang members thought they were returning back to their own house.

I feel for the guy who called the cops. Now he has to live with the consequences of calling bumbling homicidal idiots. Cops where I live are reasonably competent, but I'm still very reluctant to call them. For things like late night noise, suspicious events, no fucking way. You're just asking for someone to get murdered in your name.

I'd feel some sympathy for Silverman if in the past he had consistently treated others the way he wants others to treat him now. He used his interview with Justin to bully and demonize him, and to virtue signal his own alliance with the SJ wing of the atheist movement and help drive Justin out. He showed no charity then, so why expect others to show charity to him now?

I agree that what Silverman is asking for are good. But I see no reason to think Silverman views them as principles that should always govern our discussion/interactions, as opposed to tactics that should only apply when it is to Silverman's benefit.

Fuck him.

The fury of the Woke's hatred of Tulsi is fascinating. She's actually pretty far left, though largely eschews the SJW positions (e.g., open orders) so dear to the leftist white elite. Plus, after the way Tulsi kneecapped Kamala, they reasonably fear her next target will be their beloved Lizzie.
... her frequent appearances on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show have buoyed her support in right-wing circles.
Well, the leftist MSM has essentially blacklisted her. Which is what they do to inconvenient candidates. After the second debate, when Delaney did such a fine job poking holes in Lizzie's pipe dreams, the only network to interview him was FOX.


FYI, Bill Maher is hot for Amy Klobuchar:

Katie Herzog is a writer for The Stranger(Dan Savage's newspaper in Seattle). She's a lesbian, and a feminist, and after the election in 2016 declared that we needed more intersectionality. I face palmed and despaired for the future of liberalism when I heard that, but then something changed(I don't know what)and within a few months she'd made a 180 degree turn around. Now her columns are often if not regularly about the destructive nature of woke culture and identity politics-not just destructive to individuals, but to getting anything actually progressive accomplished-and she gets a lot of shit for it from The Strangers woke pothead readers. Before I despaired but now I have a little hope that these people can leave the cult.

We should do what we can in improve habitats, flood control etc. Why????.... because the Chinese and Indians will NEVER slow their own economies to reduce CO2. If the US, Germany, etc., reduce CO2 through taxes and higher cost energy solutions we will just export industrial production to low cost countries.... countries that make more CO2.

There is no solution. only mitigation.
Why do you think that "reducing CO2" will slow their economies? Decoupling CO2-e intensity from economic development requires technological advancement. Last time I looked, this was good for an economy, although it can be painful for those tied to the previous technologies (rent seekers etc).

Maintaining the status quo will help GDP growth, what with all of the climate change amplified disasters requiring cleanups and rebuilding. Not so good for societies and local economies though.

Jerry and the denizens of WEIT are bemoaning the fact that Trump has abandoned the Kurds in Syria to their fate. Hundreds may die and rape may be rampant:
https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.co ... hing-ever/
I remember being in the army when Jerry and his friends demanded that the US abandon its South Vietnamese allies to their fate. Upwards of a million Vietnamese died in the aftermath from disease, forced labor including clearing mine fields by hand, and drowning as boat people. Not a tear was shed. Times have changed, apparently.

Perhaps a brief film giving some background to modern energy production would help...

I understand it as a case of CIA funded agitators (which became ISIS) and the Pentagon funded Kurds fighting each other both done with the purpose of overthrowing Assad back from a time when Clinton thought it would help her chances of getting elected if her strong involvement in pushing to topple odious Middle Eastern leaders was apparent ("We came, we saw, he died"). The Kurds likely supporting the PKK, communist extremists that have been causing trouble in Turkey for years, and have been recognised as terrorists for decades. I'm not sure that the US' continued involvement would make things better, given that their involvement thus far is the reason things are so fucked up. (A strong failure of the Obama administration). That's not to say that it makes sense for Turkey to be in NATO. Or that it makes sense for NATO to exist now that the USSR no longer exists.
