True but Forbidden 32: Who Is To Be Master?

I don’t know what you mean by ‘glory,’?” Alice said.

Humpty Dumpty smiled contemptuously. “Of course you don’t—till I tell you. I meant ‘there’s a nice knock-down argument for you!’?”

“But ‘glory’ doesn’t mean ‘a nice knock-down argument’,” Alice objected.

“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean—neither more nor less.”

“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”

“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be master—that’s all.”

Muslim Love Today:

Karma and the Death of the 8th Richest Man Who Ever Lived – In the end, Muammar Gaddafi was dragged out of a culvert by an angry mob, violently abused, and likely executed with his own weapon, a gaudy abomination of one of the finest combat pistols ever conceived. The two timeless lessons to be learned are that socialism never, ever works and that being a tyrannical despot seldom offers a decent retirement plan.

 Maybe you saw him. Perhaps you paid no notice. There are lots of old guys around, but few of his particular type: He wore a cap that said WWII vet. A diminishing breed of men who left a part of themselves on a beach or a forest and spent the rest of their lives with a small, familiar ache in their hearts. You see those men with that hat, you want to say thanks. You wonder what stories it took them decades to tell. This guy, though — you might think, “What, you went to war when you were 10?” He didn’t look 93. He’d laugh, tell you he went in when he was 15. His father fibbed on his behalf. War duty was better than the poverty of home. Adventure beckoned. He turned 16 as a lookout on a sub chaser, seasick in a roaring storm, watching for the deadly metal fish streaking toward the ship.  Lileks: Remembering a WWII vet, an American original, a father

In 2012, 2014, and 2015, an ACTA-commissioned survey of college graduates found that less than 20% could accurately identify the effect of the Emancipation Proclamation. Less than half could identify George Washington as the American general at Yorktown. One-third of college graduates were unaware that FDR introduced the New Deal. Over one-third of the college graduates surveyed could not place the American Civil War in its correct 20-year time frame. Nearly half of the college graduates could not identify correctly the term lengths of U.S. senators and representatives.

Flipping Minnesota President Trump sees 10 Electoral College votes in the Land of Lakes. He lost Minnesota by 45,000 votes. It is a state Republicans have not carried in 47 years. They want it now.

Q: What’s the difference between American MSM journalists and North Korean journalists?
A: North Korean journalists are more fearless, independent, and objective.

For those who say to legalize drugs come visit SF. Take a morning stroll and you will find someone passed out with a needle sticking out of their arm. I regularly see drug users passed out on the street, cops too busy trying to get the crazy& violent off the street, and the paramedics picking up the same fuckers day in and day out. Meanwhile, us law-abiding citizens have to fend for ourselves and not being able to get police, paramedic, etc other services because they are wasted in the same set of people. My building ended up getting private armed security to keep our block safe. Don’t make the mistake of legalizing drugs and make this a countrywide problem.

Starbucks stopped being a chain of coffee shops and turned into a network of public urinals and flophouses with a coffee bar attached.

I See Dead Idiots EVERY civilization that handed off kids to be raised by strangers not their parents has regretted it. Some have collapsed and been replaced by others that DO civilize their kids. As for us? Sooner or later this will have to be corrected. The sooner we correct it, the less violent the correction. If we don’t act now, with courts, with social disapproval, with disgust, yes, it will take crosses. Or stakes. Or unimaginably worse punishments before this type of action becomes unthinkable again. And we’ll get there. We’ll get there, sooner or later, because what’s not going to happen is for humanity to go quietly into that good night. Never did, never will. If we fall, something else will rise up, which deals with the barbarians swiftly and decisively. If you’re a barbarian you should note the West is not your worst option. Not even close.

Another woman comes forward to accuse Trump of existing against her wishes. According to the woman, Trump has insisted on not dying for years, despite her constant calls for him to die a most painful death. “I made it very clear to my 19 Twitter followers that I wanted him to die,” the woman said. “And yet, he refused to drop dead. This just goes to show what kind of a man he is—clearly we’re dealing with a person who does not have the decency to die when I want him to.”

Green Energy Revolution Can’t Meet America’s Energy Demands | The annual output of Tesla’s Gigafactory, the world’s largest battery factory, could store three minutes’ worth of annual U.S. electricity demand. It would require 1,000 years of production to make enough batteries for two days’ worth of U.S. electricity demand. Meanwhile, 50–100 pounds of materials are mined, moved, and processed for every pound of battery produced.

Anti-Air Conditioning ‘New York Times’ Enjoys 6250-Ton Cooling System While you are probably reading this in a room with a 5000 to 7500 BTU window air conditioner or an 80,000 BTU central air conditioning unit, the New York Times is lobbying to strip you of that modest comfort while being cooled by a 75 million BTU air conditioner. Seventy-five MILLION. Yes, the New York Times is so gosh-darned dedicated to its own comfort, its air conditioner runs on enough power to theoretically melt 6250 tons of ice in just 24 hours.

No longer do people speak of Africa as the future unless they are referring to instability and war and poverty the return of deadly diseases and the emergence of new ones (cue Ebola) which have entered the normal news cycle, to stay. If America is the apex of this cycle of civilizatory advance, is Africa its inverse? If America, which was the future and is now the present, will one day become the past – is the anarchy that came from Africa what our future will represent? Perhaps.

“We should rather examine, who is better learned, than who is more learned. We only labor to stuff the memory, and leave the conscience and the understanding unfurnished and void. Like birds who fly abroad to forage for grain, and bring it home in the beak, without tasting it themselves, to feed their young; so our pedants go picking knowledge here and there, out of books, and hold it at the tongue’s end, only to spit it out and distribute it abroad.”  — Montaigne

    RE: Muslim Love Today++++++
    Neither bride nor groom appears to want anything to do with the “marriage”. I suspect the pretty young thing is going to look very old much before her time, provided she hasn’t been the victim of an honor killing (the guy looks capable). I cannot see how any father would want this for his daughter.

    I’m not saying it would for sure happen, but the possibility exists that a Christina – not a musli m, man would step up and clock that son of a bitch in his wedding clothes.

    Love the pulp fiction novel covers. The first place star goes to the one with endless phalluses when the girl knees the Nazi in the ass. Life During Wartime.

    Of course I have a soft spot for the man with the WW II cap. To my way of thinking, every one of them should get an upgrade on his (or her) medals, a bump in the GI Loan, and a statue in town square.

    After we pay reparations to every veteran family, we can have a talk about the dem’s reparation fantasies. Hell, I want a fucking reparation after having lived through 8 years of the Obama economy!

    I digress. The video “If Trump Were a Democrat.” Spot on. He’d be so popular, he could grab pussies non-stop at the Oscar gala.

    Okay. That was fun. Back to work.

    I see a nasty divorce in that couple’s future, if not an “honor” killing…

    That poor girl is living a life in hell, assuming she’s still living. Her father doesn’t care what happens to her, she belongs to her husband now just like a used car. He can anally rape and torture her and in some countries like Saudia Arabia, even kill her and no one will do anything. If she has a passport her husband holds it, she has no chance or possibility of escape. She will be treated worse than a dog.

    I wonder how the honeymoon went? I feel sad for the woman. Yes a “man” would have stepped up and clocked him. But aren’t women our equal? Don’t we have something like 20% of our military are women? Why didn’t SHE clock him??? Some would (re: the Disneyland video). But the point is anyone who thinks women can compete or directly confront men in a physical life or death way are naïve. Some women can, I get it. My mother was a strong woman and would indeed jump in the middle of a fight to stop it. But it stopped only because the men did not want a woman to get hurt NOT because she could physically stop the violence. Our military is weakened by bringing in women and we seemed committed to this particular form of suicide.

    Speaking of old guys in WWII caps, highly recommended, by me at least:


    The portions about making a separate peace, and the effects of age upon memory, are alone worth the price of admission.

    My BS was largely paid for working a second job at a liquor store where I learned quite a bit about all sorts of booze. Kentucky Deluxe! Bottom shelf blended whiskey. It is not a Bourbon, which must be made from 75% corn and aged four years in unused charred oak barrels and water added to a minimum of 80 proof. Kentucky Deluxe is probably made from a small percentage of something similar to Bourbon then having neutral grain spirits (effectively vodka) added, along with a squirt of food coloring to make it brown(er). Outside of stocking shelves and selling it at the register, I only partook of it once while helping some farmers slaughter a cow. The annual cow slaughter was usually done in December. A few guys and gals from local farms would come over to help. I was there to help in trade for hunting privileges. I was there 15 years in a row. I graduated from just skinning, to shooting the cow in the noodle and finally the top honor of cutting its throat right after the noodle shot. Great group of folks. Usually when the job was about complete, someone would break out a bottle of booze. One year it was Kentucky Deluxe! and when it was passed to me, I took a generous swig.
