    People try to differentiate between purple and violet, but in my research they really mean the same color. It’s philology: more users of the language say “purple” nowadays than say “violet”.

    On a combustable culture note, the Left (but also many at large) have a loose overly inclusive definition of what “Nazi” means. It really means a particular political party with a particular set of platforms, and was a party peculiar to the Germans in the early 20th Century. If someone insists on a broad meaning, then I’d say anyone beating or shit-talking Jews is nazi. That fits the loose logic, but is actually more on point than most of today’s rhetoric.

    Look at me using logic! I’m a freaking dinosaur.

    • DT June 26, 2024, 3:42 PM

      “Violet” tends to be of a shorter wavelength than “purple” – almost invisible to the human eye (deer see it quite well. That’s why washing your hunting gear in “brightening detergents” is a no-no). But that’s a scientific definition. I’m a male. I’m reminded of the color charts where females list umpty-zillion colors and men only list a dozen or so. (What’s the difference between “Coffee” and “Cocoa”?)

      Logic? What an outdated, 20th century concept. Get with the times Casey.

      • Casey Klahn June 27, 2024, 4:37 AM

        OfUg, DT, I’m tryin’! Can’t seem to lose the brain-force, but I haven’t tried everything yet.

        There are arguments that violet has less red in it than purple, but in terms of actual use of the language, they mean the same thing to English speakers. Now there are arguments that the lack of the word “blue” in the ancient and Biblical world literature puts into question what people actually saw. Wittgenstein, I think it was, said that there is no intelligible way to describe or differentiate a color, take “green” as an example, except that we know to call it green. I agree with him.

        Yes, for sure there are colors we don’t see, but that the deer and the dog do see. But they ain’t tellin’.

  • Joe Krill June 26, 2024, 9:20 AM

    Something to think about. Happening today.

    Supreme Court allows White House to press social media companies to remove disinformation. Question is, who decides what disinformation is.

    • DT June 26, 2024, 3:52 PM

      You know who gets to define “disinformation. Not me or you.

      Not all that long ago, these platforms were supposed to be just that, platforms. Like the phone company – “We provide a service, we do not regulate content”. Now these platforms have been given permission to be “publishers” with the ability to edit content. It’s a different legal/tax category but I’m willing to bet that’s just another thing that’s changed without changing. (Cigarettes are legal, eh? Try smoking one where you can be seen)

      I don’t know what Kavanaugh, Coney Barrett and half of Roberts were thinking (who knows what Roberts is ever thinking). The 68-page decision and dissent is here. Will I read it? Maybe, but probably not. If I understand it correctly, the decision is based on “standing” and I don’t know enough of the “pro’s” and “con’s” of standing to know what I think about it (what with, thankfully, not being a lawyer either here or in real life). Turley said the other day that this case might not have been the best case to use in a defense of free speech, but again, I don’t know why he might think that, or if I agree with him.

      I watch the Court from a distance and from the vantage of an amateur, but two things are clear to me:
      * The Supremes really, really, really want the legal system to play itself out before they’re going to accept an issue for which they need to decide. There are exceptions, of course, but they don’t look favorably at those who want to skip a step.
      * And ever since 2000 with Bush v Gore (which I haven’t read either), I think that the Supremes have a deep aversion to getting involved in elections. I think that they were hurt by the “Selected, not elected” taunts of 2000 and that they don’t want to again be put in the position of deciding a presidential election. Like it or not, that’s what is going to happen this year (and it may turn out to be tomorrow). One way or the other, half of America is going to believe that the Supremes are giving kid gloves to one side, while the other half is going to think that they’be been given the shaft. The thought occured that maybe the Supremes are trying to “split the baby” by coupling this decision which allows the .gov to influence social media censorship to an upcoming favorable decision on Trump’s immunity claim. [Is that a bowl full of hopium or a reasoned analysis?]

    From over at BCE’s place
    =================
    (this guy usually knows what he’s talking about and has “boots on the ground” experience)

    The Krainian Terror Raid on the beaches at Sevastopol has been all over the news as of late. Last I got was that it was 151+/- wounded, 4 dead, to include a 4 year old girl.

    (video)

    You can see the bomblets ‘walk’ their way up from the water… I suppose they/we should be thankful that it didn’t drop parallel to the beach as it would have been a hamburger-making slaughterfest.

    Despite the propaganda to the contrary, Ivan has been pretty good about not bombing civilian targets, outside of the Energy Infrastructure. Got no complaints there either, as we did the same exact thing in Iraq and left them without clean water and power in our hitting them in 2003. Goose = Gander IMO there, and anyone who says otherwise is a fucking liar.

    That being said, targeting a beach at the height of the summer vay-kay? Nope, not cool, not cool at all. Pure Cowardice and Terrorism.

    Targeting DotMil ‘stuff’ = OK.
    Targeting Civvies vacationing on a Beach at the height of summer? = Major Not OK.

    And spare me the bullshit of ‘collateral damage’ and whatnot.
    That’s the same thing that the fucking Yids are doing targeting women and children in Gaza. Same thing, no more, no less. It amazes me how some people think this is, in both cases both justifiable and OK… fucking souless NPC automatons IMO.

    So, now we have Russia, as a whole who got hit a couple of times with some recent terror-shytte… One was this strike on the beach, the other in Dagestan of all places… with a Sin-O-Gog and Orthodox Christian church being shot up/burned by our favorite Christians In Action Cutouts ISIS. Whole lot of people of both the Christian and Judaic faith killed there…

    I’m telling you, there’d be ZERO terrorism overseas if it wasn’t for the CIA, (ISIS) and ZERO domestic terrorism here in the States without the FBI. (School Shooters and the like) Nice to see the clear delineation though, that they both keep to their respective ‘Rhubarb Patches’ so to speak…

    But either way, the Krainians sure AF didn’t pick nor chart that particular ATACMS to hit where and when it did. That Drone over the Black Sea, the RQ4 Global Hawk was on site during the raid, after being gone for four days prior to this incident. Funny how the main Intel Command and Control Drone is grounded for maintenance, but on-site loitering just in time to be there before, during and after the strike package was delivered?

    Myself? If -I- was Russian? I would declare ALL of the Black Sea off limits to ‘non combatant aircraft and drones’ give them 12 hours to GTFO out the airspace as ANYTHING and EVERYTHING after that 12 hours is now considered hostile and will be treated as such. No fly zone much anyone? I mean it is Ivan’s Sea IMO.

    Again,
    Goose = Gander
    Pot = Kettle

    Shoot down ANYONE who breaks that no-fly shit.
    NO WARNINGS
    Then send a bill to whatever country that gets their shit shoved in for the cost of the Air-to-Air that was used. Watch the current do-nothing/know-nothings ‘Shultzes’ shit in their collective Brooks Brothers. Morons.

    See… everyone to the point and I mean EVERYONE is operating under the presumption as if the ‘Shultzes’ actually have ANY clue as to what they’re doing. The majority of opinions being that “The US is hoping that the Russians respond so as to escalate!!!” or that there’s some ‘strategic thinking’ going on in how to ‘get into the war’ via a provocation of one kind or another. Truthfully… let’s use Occam’s Razor:

    (graphic)

    In this case, the simplest and most easily explainable rationale for these things are That these fucking jugheaded morons know not what they do.
    LITERALLY
    I’m the one who posited on WRSA some years ago that these people “…have never been punched in the fucking face and it shows.”
    ALL of these provocative actions

    ALL of these apparently dumb moves

    EVERYTHING
    It’s all because they’re too fucking stupid for their own fucking good.
    THEY ARE LITERALLY ON MENTAL AUTOPILOT
    Fucking NPCs, the lot of them
    “VodkaManBad”
    “OrangeManBad”
    “VodkaMan won’t do anything to us, he scared!”
    AGAIN:
    Fucking Morons

    Not one of them (our current cabal of LeaderSHIT) have ever suffered in any significant manner ever. Not one of them have known a true moment of privation in their oh-so-special lives. In fact that’s where the problem lies.

    They’ve never had their fucking asses kicked for doing the stupid shit they do and/or talk!!!

    They’ve been positively cocooned inside a bubble of privilege, wealth and surrounded by Yes-Men the entirety of their actually worthless skin-job lives. It’s never registered to them that there are real people who’re eventually going to get sick and tired of their collectivist bullshit. At which point they’ll die in wholesale lots. I just hope I get to watch and participate.
    As they’re starting to say in France:

    (graphic)

    They just don’t understand ‘thesis / antithesis’

    Action begets a reaction

    If not from Vlad and the Russians the let me tell you…
    WHEN not IF the Krainians finally figure out just how badly they’ve been fucked over by the Tribalists as well as the Globalists, there’s not going to be a place on the planet that any of the aforementioned can or be able to hide.

    I mean Israel is in the midst of its death throes.

    WHEN they invariably decide that it’s time to “Head North” into Lebanon, unless they plan on utilizing their ‘Toys from Dimona’ i.e. Nooks, then they’ll be getting obliterated by the Fuzzy Wuzzies of Hezbollah that much sooner. It’s bad enough that even a former Shin-Bet spy-turned Politico in the Big Izz came out against Nutjobyayhoo:

    (graphic)

    Link to the story HERE

    Everyone seems to conveniently ‘forget’ that Good Ole Benyamin was about to be arrested on corruption charges with his wife RIGHT BEFORE October 7th came down. Add on now that there’s faaar too man legit stories out there that the Izzy Army was told to ‘Stand Down’ so that October 7th could happen. This was done IMO to A) Give Ole Benny the ‘cover’ he needed to NOT go to jail as well as B) Launch the “Final Solution Mark II, The Palestinian Boogaloo” to bring about the whole “Yid Messianic Comeback Party” of which he believes fervently in.

    Considering that despite the propaganda, the Hamas kids?
    They seem to be holding their own.
    Which is what I expect of a bunch of filthy sandal wearing AK Toting RPG wielding goatfuckers…
    I mean WE got OUR asses handed to US by the same sort of guys, not ONCE but TWICE in the SAME DECADE
    Why should the Izzies be any different?

    I mean let’s face it.
    The Hamas kids were like the Mahdi Militia, which turned into the Mahdi Army in Iraq, which eventually assisted in running us out of town on a rail, never mind the ISIS Kids who we (or at least our CIA kids) created as a Revenge Force against the Ungrateful Iraqis. The Hamas kids are just as dedicated to killind the ‘Yehud’ as the next “Good Muj”

    Thing is, and as I stated, they’re still kicking after how many months now? Long after the pundits predicted their expiration date that’s for damned sure. And since they’re still fucking things up?

    I mean what a brilliant plan to now go after Hezbollah in Lebanon! An absolute stroke of fucking genius on the level of Hitler ordering “Operation Barbarossa” against the Russians in 1941, instead of, you know consolidating his fucking gains in Europe before looking to ya know, fucking expand?

    That Bibi… can’t say he lacks for Chutzpah and balls…
    Brains are no where to be found of course

    But he is a politician out to save his skin, so it all works out in the end I suppose. Yep. Moronitude and Hubris is something that NONE of these fuckers are lacking. I can say with surety that it’s about to get a whole hell of a lot bloodier before shit mellows out.

      There is no equivalency one side (in a war) to the other. You don’t judge yourself or your allies by the same scale as you judge your enemies. If you start that shit, you’l never pull any triggers.

      In a barroom fight, you defend your friends, and punch all others. “Right” don’t enter into it. “Right” is for Bible college bull sessions.

      I’m watching Red River. John Wayne is seven kinds of not-right throughout the movie, and yet he’s doing the shit that must be done. He starts branding every cow that comes into sight for his drive from Texas to Missouri, and when confronted by one cattle-owning neighbor, he says he’s doing the drive for him and he’ll pay $2 a head for any of the neighbors’ cattle that make it to market. It’s fair and it’s his ass but the neighbors’ risk. He shoots the Mexican messenger who tries to tell him his boss in Mexico owns the land north of the Rio Grande.

      Don’t go to the fukn beach in Crimea. Is that “ethics”? Not sure, and I’m a Bible college graduate.

    • azlibertarian June 27, 2024, 4:40 PM

      Are we giving intelligence assistance to the Ukrainians? Maybe. But it is in both party’s interests to understand that this assistance has to be given very occasionally and very quietly. And let’s not sell the Ukrainians short: They are miles ahead of us in tactical drones as well as seaborne drones. They may have all the targeting data on their own that they can prosecute. Also, IMO we should have reconnaissance assets in the area, if for no other reason than for us to learn about how the Russians are operating.

      And I don’t for a minute believe that the Ukrainians intentionally attacked that beach in Crimea. I agree with Preston Stewart here. The ATACMS weapons are too few and too valuable to waste on a target of no military value. There is no up-side in doing this. The ATACMS weapons were likely intercepted and the bomblets fell with the debris with unfortunate consequence.

  • ghostsniper June 26, 2024, 12:31 PM

    Until you realize the USgov’t is the worst criminal enterprise the world has ever known you will not understand what is going on in the world today.

    Take Aesop for example. Smart as a whip and a dam good soldier and medical officer but he just cannot unfuk his head from out of the gov’t ass. He eagerly acknowledges the many incidents of criminality the gov’t practices domestically and internationally everyday, but then he goes right back to supporting the crimes.

    Some how, in his mind, and in many other people’s minds, the behavior of other entities justifies the crimes committed by the gov’t. Sort of like, “The enemy of my enemy is my friend”., nonsense. If a gangsta kills another gangsta that was going to kill you does that mean gangsta one won’t kill you?

    I think it’s a matter of focal length. Aesop is smart as hell but only out to a certain distance. Go even 1 inch past his focal length and he becomes as dumb as rock. If he actually got bitten by the gov’t, that is, if he became victimized by the gov’t criminality, even just a little bit, his focal length would increase dramatically. Thus far, he simply has not gotten a firm grasp on what he is talking about. That’s why it’s so easy to knock the wobbly 3 legged stool out from under his ass that he has his ideology propped up on.

    But rest assured, the criminal entity always tries to expand it’s field as yesterdays crime is not enough today. Like an addict, it has to keep causing more and more crime to get the same effect. Note that today more people are untrusting of the gov’t than there were just 10 years ago. The scales are being slowly lifted and they are being lifted at a faster rate with each passing year. By the end of 2024 the scales may be lifted entirely from everyones eyes and only the medically blind and retarded will not be able to see.

    • azlibertarian June 27, 2024, 10:51 PM

      Yep. Watched the whole thing. First time that I’ve had CNN on the television in years.

      A couple’o observations…..
      * While I do have some small criticisms, Jake Tapper and Dana Bash were much more balanced than I thought they’d be.
      * Trump performed pretty well. He’s still Trump, but he’s learned to take a bit of his edge off and just make his point.
      * Biden is toast. And by “toast” I mean “Toast-from-a-toaster-where-the-release-wouldn’t-pop-up-and-the-kitchen-is-full-of-smoke-and-all-you-have-is-a-smoking-piece-of-charcoal“. The D’s can now no longer deny what we have known all along–Joe Biden is incapable of his office. It is obvious to all that he cannot win and they’ll have to decide…and decide very soon….how and when he gets out. After seeing him tonight, I’d put it at even money whether he steps aside for another nominee or whether he resigns from office before the election.
      * Global leaders…allies and adversaries alike…saw this too. Their reactions will be interesting.

      • ghostsniper June 28, 2024, 3:33 AM

        I watched some, which is more than ever before.

        “The D’s can now no longer deny what we have known all along–Joe Biden is incapable of his office. ”

        Agreed. That was pathetic wasn’t it? biden gave me the impression of a mumbling, nasty, bitter old man that has lived all of his life that way.

        For the dems it is now clear what must be done. biden is toast and they have no second choice. The only thing left is to prevent Trump from winning no matter what it takes, and you know what I mean. Hear me now, if THAT happens, within 24 hours after there will be the ignition of a scorched earth policy across the fruited plain like has never been seen before. The cauldron is roiling.

    Remember, in 2015, Ann Coulter was the first of the talking heads to claim Trump would be the next pres (on the Bill Maher show, summer 2015). She’s worth listening to.
    ====================

    How Trump Will Lose the Debate
    Ann Coulter

    June 26, 2024

    Donald Trump’s recent proposal to give a green card to every immigrant who gets a degree from any college reminded me of his performance at the 2020 debates with Joe Biden.

    Here’s the 15-second version:

    “You did a crime bill, 1994, where you called them super-predators. African Americans are super-predators and they’ve never forgotten it. They’ve never forgotten it.”

    “I’m letting people out of jail now, you have treated the African American population community, you have treated the black community about as bad as anybody in this country.”

    “If you look at the polls, I’m doing better than any Republican has done [with African Americans] in a long time …”

    “Nobody has done more for the black community than Donald Trump … Criminal justice reform … prison reform, opportunity zones with Tim Scott …”

    “Biggest beneficiary, the black and Hispanic communities and then historically black colleges and universities …”

    “If you look at the kind of numbers that we produce for Hispanic, or black, or Asian, it’s nine times greater, the percentage gain than it was under [Obama].”

    “We had the best black unemployment numbers in the history of our country, Hispanic, women, Asian …”

    And on and on and on.

    Trump never mentioned whites, not once, in either debate. Nor the rural, working-class, or left-behind Americans.

    That’s not how Trump won in 2016. This is how he won — and also how he lost four years later.

    For decades, Democrats, Republicans, Wall Street, universities, the media and corporate America had dumped on rural whites and the working class. Liberal elites had to demonize the people they’d screwed over to justify the untold riches they’d made on NAFTA and global “free trade.” Wall Street stole from the working class, so they had to attack the people they’d stolen from.

    That’s why the elites carry on so about “white privilege” and “toxic masculinity,” as if the guy working at Home Depot is an incipient Hitler.

    Democrats used to pretend to care about the working class. Then, in the Clinton era, they realized that with all the new immigrants voting for them, they didn’t need the working class anymore and proceeded to come down like a sledgehammer on “flyover people.”

    Trying to impress liberals, Republicans were embarrassed about getting votes from white people.

    Then Trump came along like the vox clamantis in deserto and spoke directly to ordinary white Americans. Once they got over their amazement, the despised working class would have walked over glass to vote for Trump. Shocking the world, he won the election.

    All the stars were aligned. Wall Street had given more than 96% of its money to a losing candidate. Trump won on the slogan “BUILD THE WALL” — defying not only Democrats but also the entire GOP establishment, to the extent you can tell them apart. The more the media slandered Trump, the more his voters loved him.

    And then Trump systematically fumbled it all away, hiring his relatives and giving the keys of the kingdom to Goldman Sachs, Silicon Valley and the Chamber of Commerce.

    Trump had begun selling out even before the 2016 Republican Convention. He turned everything over to his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Jared assured him he didn’t need rural and working-class whites. “Where else are they going to go?” he said.

    In 2020, Trump found out. The only demographic he lost in 2020, compared to 2016, was white people, especially white men.

    Who could have seen that coming, except anybody without his head up his butt?

    Trump had spent his precious four years in office praising illegals (“incredible kids”), threatening to take guns away from people without due process, boasting about his “Platinum Plan” (for black people) and his “American Dream Plan” (for Hispanics — press 2 now to hear the plan in Espanol), releasing criminals from prison (where Kushner’s policy mastery met Kim Kardashian’s grasp of criminal justice on the Venn diagram) and bragging in his first debate with Biden, “I’m letting people out of jail now!”

    He also spent 3.5 of his first four years in office not building the wall.

    Today, Trump is back at it. Kushner’s invaluable campaign advice still rings loudly in his heart. With help from his clueless donors and even more clueless wingman, Fox News, he’s blowing off his available voters in order to chase the pipe dream of winning the black and Hispanic vote. (Can a major push for story-reading drag queens be far behind?)

    The donors are thrilled. Living exclusively in the most white areas of the country, where the closest black person is 50 miles away, donors apparently believe TV commercials reflect the country’s actual demographics. They’re convinced that the key to GOP victory is sucking up to every non-white group.

    It will never, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever work. Immigrants — all immigrants — have always voted overwhelmingly for the Democrats. Instead of adopting our culture, immigrants mostly bring their failed cultures with them. We’re not even getting “diversity”! What we’re getting is a boatload of Hispanics (44% of immigrants) and Asians (27%).

    This year, like every year, black people will vote roughly 90% for the Democrats, while Hispanics and Asians will vote about 60% for the Democrats — give or take 5 percentage points. Under no circumstances, from now until the end of time, will Republicans ever crack 50% of the black or immigrant vote — not even the second- and third-generation immigrant vote.

    That’s why the outcome of every single presidential election for at least the last half-century has been determined by slight movements in the white vote. Whites are the only swing voters in the country, something donors couldn’t grasp if you applied white-hot pokers to them.

    Below are a few of the poll results you’ll never see on Fox News that illustrate this immutable fact, regarding only two of our unique American freedoms: free speech and the right to bear arms. At the rate we’re hauling in immigrants, don’t expect either to last much longer.

    According to a 2020 survey by the Knight Foundation, only about half of white Americans (51%) think “the government should prohibit people from sharing a racist or bigoted idea.” But gigantic majorities of non-whites do: 71% of Asians, 76% of Hispanics and 80% of blacks think racist speech should be prohibited by the government (unless it’s in a speech by Joe Biden).

    Judging by what they say, that’s a lot of speech. Non-whites were twice as likely as whites to report feeling “unsafe” because of someone’s speech. Both Hispanic and Asian Americans are more likely than even African Americans to report feeling “unsafe” because of something said about race, ethnicity, religion, gender or sexual orientation — even if not directed at them. (This may explain why you almost never see Hispanics or Asians in comedy clubs.)
    Only 15% of white Americans think the government “should prohibit a person from sharing political views that are offensive to some.” More than twice as many Asians do (35%); more than three times as many Hispanics do (44%); and an outright majority of black people think the government should ban such speech (53%).

    Thanks to all the third-worlders pouring in, Second Amendment rights also have a gun to their heads. Pew Research reported in 2021 that huge majorities of Asians (72%), Hispanics (65%) and blacks (75%) favor gun control, compared to only 45% of whites. (The other 25% of blacks were just fatally shot with an illegal gun in front of a 7-Eleven.)

    The report noted that “white Americans stand alone on this question” — something you’ll see a lot in these polls. It holds true on such diverse topics as voter ID laws, Obamacare, abortion, big government, vaccine mandates and many other left-right issues.

    Remember, Republicans (especially Trump): Democrats are smarter than you are. If it were remotely possible for immigrants ever to vote 60% to 70% for the GOP, instead of 60% to 70% for the Democrats, Sen. Chuck Schumer would be demanding an Iron Dome on our southern border. If Republicans, rather than Democrats, consistently won nearly 90% of the black vote, he’d be calling for a poll tax to take the literacy test.

    Or Trump can take the advice of strategic genius Kushner and blow off his most loyal voters because, after all, “Where else are they going to go?”

    Let’s say Cuba launched Russian supplied missiles into Florida, with satellite assistance from Russian reconnaissance aircraft to guide the missiles, killing US civilians / children.

    What would your response be?

    Because that’s exactly what Ukraine / US did to Russia.

      Putin doesn’t want a war with NATO. I think he’ll wait until after the election (unless NATO/US pushes too far). If Trump wins, there’s a chance major war will be averted. If the Dems win, better find your foxhole.

      Come to think on that, I respect Putin (not support, but respect) far more so than our current administration.
