    Yep. 300 channels and only one thing on.

  • [11] June 30, 2015 at 7:31pm

    My current 35+ year marriage (grandchildren and everything!) is to a military brat; a traditional conservative girl. She wouldn’t marry me until I pledged to serve THE FUTURE above my own needs. That meant I had to support and produce a family; children who would understand that the natural state of mankind was Lord of the Flies. Civilization was hard work; each generation had to have selfishness beaten out of it for without adults civilization was not possible.

    Yep a “good Catholic girl!”

    So marriage number two. I cherished her. I provided for her and our children. We created something together much greater than either of us alone could have ever accomplished. We submerged “SELF” in order to “SERVE.”

    And it’s idiots like BenJen and their typical liberal nostrums and snake oil that are going to piss it all away. These last few years have been HARD. It’s not easy to see the forces of chaos, anarchy, selfishness and lust destroy the fabric of civilization.

    Yes, I am ready to lay my life on the altar of civilization if that is what it takes. I will not go gently.

    Civilization is worth it.

    Couple of thoughts humbly submitted. I’m a 55 year old university research scientist and university professor. First marriage lasted 2 years (current bride of 35 years calls her “the training wife” lol). Born/raised Connecticut; an east-coast “coop liberal” (8 mm of me leading protest in Chinatown waving the Little Red Book in mid 70s). The background matters- bear with me.

    “Conservatives” believe in (and act upon in daily life) things like “service to others above self” and “paying it forward” and “raising the next generation of civil society.” I never used to believe that; for those are the WORDS used by “Liberals” to describe themselves. Conservatives (I found out late in life) don’t feel the need to express their beliefs in phony job descriptions with no basis in reality.

    Liberals use all those words because they are terrified that those around them will discover the truth of them. Liberals (from the self-appointed first leader of the Harvard Coop who used every starry eyed co-ed as a personal penile wet nap to the most recent incarnation) are generally self-absorbed manipulators who act upon (but declaim otherwise) “if it feels good, do it” and “value systems are relative” and “my truth is not your truth, and that’s ok.”

    My two year marriage was to a high school sweetheart; progeny of Vietnam protesters and my “soulmate” in all things Liberal and Democratic. We put up DNC yard signs together and spoke on public access tv about lowering the voting age to 18.

    Oh right sorry- most people have no idea that our courts have held and upheld that “the state” (at any and all levels) has NO legal responsibility to protect the life or property of ANY citizen.

    A policeman can (and has in the past) watch you be victimized up to and including your DEATH and can not be held responsible for your protection.

    Look it up.

    Is he offering the protection of the government (at any level) from crimes against our persons or property? I mean, if he takes away our right to defend ourself he creates a “bailment” whe he is now accepting that responsibility.

    No? He just wants to take away our ability to defend OURSELVES without any offer of PROTECTION in its place?

    Hmmm. At least under a REAL King our fealty bought protection.

    “Celebrating independence day would profane the prophet Mohammed.”

    Did the FBI and DHS just tell us celebrating the 4th is “hate speech?”

    As a research scientist, “studies” like these make my eyeballs itch.

    - where did they get 10,000 BMIs and how do they know the BMIs are actually representative of the population? “Restriction of Range” confound is huge in these “non random databases.” For example, the health departments in these countries automatically record “high” BMIs but not “low” BMIs. So right from the git- go we are NOT talking about “the general population” casting doubt on the “generalizability” of the findings.

    - people in Europe get married later in life. As we age our BMI increases. Another “smoking causes cancer” fallacy where some unmeasured variable (getting older) causes BOTH marriage AND higher BMIs. Did they do paired samples differences of means tests or what?

    - BMI varies 20-30 among normal breathing adults . . . Statistically, there is ZERO difference between the values. Would love to see their confidence intervals/standard errors of the estimates for the “averages.” Basically they found “no difference” but feel the need to lie about what they found. Or did a very bad job explaining it to the media person who wrote the article.

    All we can tell from this write up is that “publishing bad science for fame and profit” is just as big a deal in the EU as it is here . . .

    So what would happen if ISIS adopted the rainbow flag? Would we ban it? Not likely.

    This is what bullies do. The beating wasn’t enough. It will NEVER be enough. Bullies.

    Well, it’s not like our state department is going to do anything about it . . .

  • [3] June 23, 2015 at 12:59pm

    Did they take out the unconstitutional stuff? Did they take out the amnesty? Did they take out the fast-track to citizenship? Did they take out the reauirement to honor foreign governmetn labor law?

    No?

    KILL IT DEAD THIS TIME.

    I never knew “Capitalism” was all about punctuation (vs. economics). Who knew?

  • June 23, 2015 at 12:54pm

    Hmmm. “200-300 years” is “overnight.”

    What a very special man our president is.

    Fascinating.

    A mere two generations ago my white ancestors were slaves. I’m pretty much over it.

    Back to you, Don.

    This type of junk science and the ignorance of juries made Erin Brockovich a famous millionnaire, got a movie made of Julia Roberts’ cleavage, and deprived the people of the State of California access to reasonably priced electricity TO THIS DAY.

    Two (well, three) books treat this sort of thing pretty well (albeit all three with a liberal PC bias): “Innumeracy” and the two “Mathmetician Reads the Newspaper” editions.

    Nailed it. Choosing time is nigh. WalMart et al have chosen.

    Democrats controlled the Republic of Texas from 1874-1979 so I doubt those “wascally wepublicans” had much say in where the Democratic Party cronies buried their foul offal.

    Statistical clustering is expected. Toss grains of rice on a map and tell me what you see. Are all the grains evenly distributed? It would be highly unlikely for them to (“improbable”) be evenly distributed. We would expect to see lumps where there are “unusually high concentrations” and other spots where we would see “unusually low concentrations.” To the scientifically illiterate (juries) the “unusually high concentrations” are alarming and must have been “caused” by SOMETHING!!! Cha-ching call a lawyer.

    As to the role of Rick Perry (or “Republicans” in general) not sure what his role was in the 1960s when the pulp mill runoff was dumped but I doubt he was very influential at such a young age.

    I have absolutely no problem with her new career.

    After she gets out of prison.

    Love this boushwa. Just like the WHO “quality of health care studies.”

    They define the total score as “X” (quality of life for working dads) then measure a bunch of liberal PC crap that has nothing whatsoever to do with “X” knowing full wll that NOBODY reads beyond the misleading headline.

    The same way countries with 0 survival rates for easily treatable cancers have “better health care than the USA” simply because they measure “access” (defined as whether or not the user of the service pays or gets somebody else to pay) INSTEAD OF things like “treatment” and “survival rates.”

    The USA is the only country in the world that measures infant mortality as survival/all live births. Most countries (the europeans especially) measure it as survival/6 month survivals. So if you don’t live at least 6 months, you were never born so you don’t count.

    And that’s just one minor example.

    Most of these “studies” are such poorly constructed advocacy that any rational, intelligent person would see right through them. That’s why PUBLIC EDUCATION IS SO IMPORTANT TO THE FASCISTS.

    American atention span: 15 minutes.

    American baseball game: 15 minutes of action squeezed into 4 hours of standing around.

    Add instant replay and the average time/game (already ridiculously long) would get even more ridiculously longer.
