Quote of the Day I

"A moral response to this behavior might involve those officials, among others, hanging from lampposts. The legal system is, ultimately, an ancient bargain: Renounce your mob violence and blood feuds and we will provide you with justice. It could be argued that such a default as this calls the whole bargain into question, and justifies self-help along ancient lines."

-- Glenn Reynolds on the official cover-up of 16 years of systematic sexual abuse of children by Pakistani men in Rotherham, England

Quote of the Day II

"The scale of the sexual exploitation revealed in the Jay inquiry is shocking, but let's avoid racial stereotyping."

-- The Guardian attempting to ignore the central fact behind the Rotherham sexual abuse and the driving force behind its cover-up by officials.

The Price of Beef Hits an A New High

The average price for all types of ground beef per pound hit its all-time high -- $3.884 per pound -- in the United States in July, according to data released today by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).

...Five years ago, in July 2009, the average price for a pound of ground beef was $2.147, according to the BLS. In those five years, the average price has climbed by $1.737 per pound--or almost 81 percent.

National Post Recommends Converting To Islam To Avoid Islamic Terrorism

Mark Steyn responds:

Afsun Qureshi suggests the best thing you could do to lessen the likelihood of being set upon by Muslims is to learn to recite the shahadah, "a testimony to the identity of Allah as the one true God, and Muhammad as his prophet". She might be right. Wearing a burqa might help, too. Or the shalwar kameez. On the other hand, most of those Syrian men paraded through the desert in their BVDs to their rendezvous with death knew the shahadah, and a fat lot of good it did.

To recite the shahadah when you're accosted on the streets is to accept the basic premise of your attackers - that Islam now has universal jurisdiction. There's way too much of that already. In essence, the entire establishment of a South Yorkshire town accepted that the cultural mores of Islam superseded whatever squeamishness they might otherwise have about child rape.

Plus there's the fact that most of the people ever killed by Al Qaeda and IS were fellow muslims.

Border Patrol Opens Fire On Militia In Texas

I'd like to know more details of what was going on here.

A Border Patrol agent pursuing a group of immigrants in a wooded area near the Texas-Mexico border on Friday fired several shots at an armed man who later identified himself as a militia member.

Border Patrol spokesman Omar Zamora said agents had been chasing a group of immigrants east of Brownsville Friday afternoon when an agent saw a man holding a gun near the Rio Grande. The agent fired four shots, but did not hit the man. The man then dropped his gun and identified himself as a member of a militia. Zamora said no other details were immediately available.

Cameron County Sheriff Omar Lucio, whose agency is involved in the investigation, said the incident occurred on private property and it appeared the man had permission to be there. He was not arrested, Lucio said.

Putin Ends the Interregnum

We've quietly entered a new international political era.

Having flipped the global chessboard with his annexation of the Crimea and an undeclared war against Ukraine, Putin effectively ended the most recent period of interregnum and inaugurated a new era in global politics. However, no one yet knows what this era will bring. The global community is still reeling in shock, when it isn't trying to pretend that nothing extraordinary has in fact occurred. This denial of the fact that the Kremlin has dealt a blow to conventional ideas, stable geopolitical constructs, and (supposedly) successful policies proceeds from the natural instinct for self-preservation. It is also quite natural that the political forces that have grown accustomed to the status quo will try to look to the past for answers to new challenges-this is precisely what those who were unprepared for a challenge always do. It was easy enough to predict that many politicians and political analysts would explain what Putin has done to the global order by using Cold War analogies. Drawing these historical parallels is potentially useful in only one respect: if they help us to see what is truly new about the current situation, and the scale of the risks involved.

What if the Clothes Have No Emperor

This president wants yes men around him. And again, I hear that from my Democratic friends, I hear that from his own former chiefs of staff. If anybody steps out of line, they're immediately insulated and pushed out. You know, I said this on set after the cameras were turned off to a couple of people who I knew wouldn't say it on the air. I said guys, you know as well as I do that the second this administration is over, the books are going to come from former secretaries of state. The books are going to come from former chiefs of staff. The books are going to come, and this president is going to have to deal with 20-30 years of disparagement from his own side, calling him one of the least effective presidents, because he's one of the most insulated presidents.

Scientists Find the Origin of the Ebola Outbreak

In a new paper in Science (abstract), researchers reveal that they have sequenced the genomes of Ebola from 78 patients in Sierra Leone who contracted the disease in May and June. Those sequences revealed some 300 mutations specific to this outbreak. Among their findings, the researchers discovered that the current viral strains come from a related strain that left Central Africa within the past ten years. ... Using genetic sequences from current and previous outbreaks, the researchers mapped out a family tree that puts a common ancestor of the recent West African outbreak some place in Central Africa roughly around 2004. This contradicts an earlier hypothesis that the virus had been hanging around West Africa for much longer than that. Researchers are also planning to study the mutations to see if any of them are affecting Ebola's recent behavior. For example, this outbreak has had a higher transmission rate and lower death rate than others, and researchers are curious if any of these mutations are related to that.

... The scientific paper on Ebola is also a sad reminder of the toll that the virus has taken on those working on the front lines. Five of the authors died of Ebola before it was published.

Good Riddance to Traitor John Walker

He died last week in prison. For 18 years as a Navy comms officer and even after retirement John Walker sold US secrets to the Soviets and recruited family members to also act as spies. He was only caught in 1984 due to pissing off his ex-wife.

Walker received more than $1 million from the Russians for providing cryptologic "keys" which allowed them to decode our most sensitive operations and intelligence communications.  Former Soviet officials and defectors said Walker's treason gave them "an invisible seat" at the Pentagon and one gave an even bolder assessment, claiming "if there had been a war, we would have won."   

There was also a human price for Walker's treachery.  The Soviet Union shared information with its ally North Vietnam and it is widely believed that Americans died as a result of Walker's actions.  Intelligence historians also claim that his espionage prompted North Korea's seizure of the USS Pueblo in early 1968, only a month after John Walker's initial contact with his Soviet handlers.  Moscow persuaded North Korea to capture the Pueblo (a spy ship) so they could gain access to the machines which used the keys provided by Walker.  That gave them both pieces of the communications puzzle, and the ability to decrypt thousands of classified messages.

Genes Determine How Bad Your Hangovers Are

While the speed at which a person drinks, whether they eat before embarking on a drinking session and their tolerance for alcohol plays a part, a team of researchers believe a person's DNA will account for almost half of the reason as to why they are afflicted the morning after.

The study examined links between the number of hangovers each individual reported experiencing in a year, and their genetic make-up, Live Science reported.

The team studied more than 4,000 adults from the Australian Twin Registry to reach their conclusions.

Their findings found genetic factors accounted for 45 per cent of the difference in hangover frequency in women and 40 per cent in men.

...Five years ago, in July 2009, the average price for a pound of ground beef was $2.147, according to the BLS. In those five years, the average price has climbed by $1.737 per pound--or almost 81 percent.

 

Corn-to-Ethanol.  Less feed means higher prices for feed means higher prices for beef.

There was a truly obnoxious Badger fan sitting in front of me whose despair at the way things wound up was truly epic. I don't talk shit to people, but if I did I'd have told him to go fuck himself.

Well, they are Asian. As are Indians (dot, not feather). Chinese, Koreans, and Japanese were described as "Orientals". The usage dates back to when India was a British colony. Remember, there was no Pakistan when India was a British colony. It was just part of India.



It's not an euphemism, nor is it political correctness. It's just a catch-all term to describe persons whose ancestry leads back to the Indian subcontinent.

173 A.

I find it chilling that so many of those who you would think would know how to prevent acquiring Ebola and would put that knowledge religiously to use.

It therefore strikes me as possible that the CDC's claims of Ebola not being that infectious are incorrect.

Also now that there are more victims, the virus has the opportunity to mutate more rapidly. This usually also bring down the mortality rate but it will still be high, especially among those with a compromised immune system. (the old, the young those already sick)

B.

Putin has gauged the current Occupant of the WH and has come to the conclusion that he can do whatever he wishes until a new one takes residence. And he's going to take advantage of the time he has.

He has correctly realized that the Occupant is either unwilling or unable to formulate a coalition and an effective strategy to counter Putin's moves. To be fair any direct conflict with Russia is not looked upon in the US as a wise thing to do. We're war weary and tired of being the rescue squad for countries too weak or too stupid to protect themselves.

178 What are feeder calves? Posted by: Keena Raising beef for slaughter is a pretty compartmentalized business. Some cows are used only for breeding, and once the calves are weaned from their mother, they are sold to small farmers who raise them to a certain size and weight, then they are sold again to bigger herds to be raised to 1-2 years old, then they go to feed lots for final "fattening" before slaughter. Feeder calves need a fair amount of attention, but not a big ranch or a lot of grazing area. A small farmer can make some nice change raising feeder calves, but it's not a way to run a profitable farm. It's almost hobby farming, which describes my brother in law's farm. Very cold weather can kill calves that don't have enough shelter ,etc. So that limits how many calves many farmers can raise in the winter (like....zero for some guys).

You are right that the further-east peoples were "Orientals" but nobody called the subcontinentals "Asian". I mean, come on - everyone knew that term was far too vague.

You can't defeat an idea that someone likes, even if it's wrong. A necessary first step is to show how the idea is wrong. This has to go alongside the need to offer a better alternative.

On the top floor there's a restaurant called Felix. Their men's room has a big plate glass window in front of which are several heads just sticking out of the floor like waist high tree stumps or something. So, you stand there in front of this giant windowed wall looking over the lights of the city feeling like you're taking a piss on the entire city.

237 184 Agreed. Kate Upton is hotter than 20 kilograms of plutonium packed into a 10-kilo sack. And she would be no less hot, and no more hot, should she lose 20 pounds.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at September 01, 2014 12:02 AM (2w1g0)



It's funny, the wife and I were just discussing Upton. I showed her the pics. The wife feels the face is ok, but that her body is smoking. She feels the same as I, that she's not fat, but she has soft spots. That she looks like a real woman. Soft with curves.

Which we both think is more attractive/hot than the typical model look.

Posted by: BCochran1981 - Tatted, Rested and Ready at September 01, 2014 12:06 AM (GEICT)



Upton's most appealing feature is that she's happy to be a woman with some bounce to the ounce. If she had some negative vibe coming from her, she'd be a hag....even with the same body.

243 so farmers can't predict winters so if there are too many feeders in a cold winter....they become calfsickles? I would think the most money would be in feeders but I'm a city girl so I basically am talking outta my ass now Posted by: Keena Here's a shocker. They read the Farmer's Almanac, which is more reliable than the Weather Channel and Michael Mann. What happens is people lose money when calves die, so the price can collapse for calves in the fall and winter. Somebody buys them, but maybe they become veal or just little steaks. There have also been some big losses in herds in the Dakotas, Wyoming, Montana, Minnesota in the last few years from the cold. Big herds, too. Cattle out grazing on the range when a sudden blizzard hits. And somebody mentioned upthread the cost of energy. Heating a shed to keep calves warm at night costs money, too.

My brother lives in Texas and some of the people he works with, including executives have some cattle. A couple of years ago there was a long period of drought. They couldn't get enough feed or water for their steers and apparently a lot of them either died or had to be killed. I believe that that is one of the reasons beef is so high.

Not so much drinking, more like sipping. I'm nursing the last glass of mead I had in the bottle I saved from the other night. I really have to learn how to make this shit.

321 "who's still drinking?"

::: raises hand :::

Margaritas.

Made with proper tequila, por favor.

"I've got shit in my cabinet that I bought on our honeymoon in the Bahamas 11 years ago. Some weird orange fruity rum. For some reason I thought the sample tasted great. So I but a bottle. Get home..."*blech* WTF is this shit?!??!"

This is why, with few exceptions, flavored boozamahol gets binned promptly around here. It's mostly failed production runs that someone figured might earn back their production cost if adulterated with some cheap artificial taste.

If a particular flavor is required, it's easy enough to add it in with separate high quality ingredients, and much more flexible.

324 If you are wondering why Venezuela is buying crude from third parties, other than "because socialism" here is a discussion of the Venezuelan regional oil sales under,
" [Chavez's]  2005 Petrocaribe accord... [that obligated Venezuela to sell to members for] cash for just 40% of every shipment, and let them finance the rest for 25 years at low interest rates, or make in-kind payments with products ranging from rice to blue jeans. Twenty-one countries are party to oil pacts managed by Venezuela, including Petrocaribe, the Caracas Energy Agreement and other bilateral deals."

And for various reasons Venezuela cannot meet its treaty obligations and has to make it up with foreign purchases.

371 Why link to second-hand sources at Egotastic and Reddit for the "leaked celeb pics"? They're being leaked at 4chan: http://tinyurl.com/lv45vht "Nude photos of "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence, Kate Upton, Ariana Grande and Kirsten Dunst, among others, leaked online Sunday morning in one of the biggest celebrity hacking scandals in recent memory. The images, which first appeared on image-sharing site 4chan, show most of the celebrities nude or in provocative poses." I can barely decipher 4chan (got to be the most incomprehensible user interface ever), but someone there posted a link to the ".rar" file with ALL the photos as of a few hours ago: http://www.mediafire.com/download/8j08jv6hl9rfcm4/All+pics+%2B+movies.rar When you open it, it asks for a password, which will be "password1234". However, the leaks seem to be ongoing, so by now it's out of date. But it's a lot simpler than wading through gossip sites for most of the stuff! I thought you guys would be all over this, since about half the photos are of Kate Upton, and since most folks here are more Web savvy than me!

Because it's the right result for the wrong reason. Employer provided health care was created by the Dems and has long been a union stranglehold on workers. Taking it off the table changes the world for everybody but change doesn't come easy. It is a necessary step to get free market structure into health care. The trick is to fight the entitlement and make the average voter more directly aware of what stuff actually costs.

I had an example this week. A blood draw and lab work would have been billed at $292 if I had insurance. Cash price? $60. Think about that and ponder what that 'free' health coverage from your employer really costs you.

Freshly baked webwork: Valley Girls (video 1:20) The Surreality of State Department Briefings http://mindfulwebworks.com/radical/valley-girls We'll see if YouTube lets me keep the Zappa music track. Inspired by comments on here by JJ Sefton, et al., but they should not be blamed for anything I did.

412 So I am perusing the mugshots from the murder arrests in Chicago this year.

Seems to be a pattern emerging, but I just can't place it.

421 Adopting from the new Revelation of Jesus, the faith and hope of immortal life, and of future retribution, he humbled it to the dust by adapting all the rewards and sanctions of his religion to the gratification of the sexual passion. He poisoned the sources of human felicity at the fountain, by degrading the condition of the female sex, and the allowance of polygamy; and he declared undistinguishing and exterminating war, as a part of his religion, against all the rest of mankind. THE ESSENCE OF HIS DOCTRINE WAS VIOLENCE AND LUST.- TO EXALT THE BRUTAL OVER THE SPIRITUAL PART OF HUMAN NATURE.... Between these two religions, thus contrasted in their characters, a war of twelve hundred years has already raged. The war is yet flagrant ... While the merciless and dissolute dogmas of the false prophet shall furnish motives to human action, there can never be peace upon earth, and good will towards men. -Winston Churchill All-caps in the original.

424 ARRGH. No. Not Churchill. That was John Quincy Adams. This is Churchill: Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyzes the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome.

430 My hometown of Worcester MA was apparently struck by a tornado last night. One of my friends ended up with a '"Christmas tree" on her roof, others say a bunch of limbs/trees are down, haven't heard anything about injuries. Worcester has a bad history with tornadoes, one of the deadliest in American history hit when my parents were kids, everyone knew someone who got hurt/killed/lost their house.

Work on the honeydo list, sit in the office and do paperwork, goad the boy into working on Eagle project, stare at a tablet all day, work on the old Fiat, or just start drinking? You input will be appreciated, but may be ignored.

According to the local news this morning -- Channel Seven, which hardly qualifies as "news" -- Worcester was hit by an "F0" tornado. That's "zero" on the scale.

Oh, the humanity!

437 The power is out at my friend's house, with a long wait for a tree guy to come get the pine off his roof. That EF-0 thing doesn't mean jack when you're there. The difference between being killed or having your house smushed by a tree knocked over by wind going 85 miles hour and wind going 150mph? There is none.

438 Some kind of script must be running on both the home page, and the morning thread.
Both continually load.
This thread does not.
