LOCAL AND REGIONAL
* It’s easy for Sally Kohn to say these things and think them. Because, when you’re holding the whip, you have a personal animus against people who are trying to take the whip away from you.
* “Like so many.” Really.
* Not even three days after the memorial, she’s not even cold yet. And, knowing of Ed Martin like I do, I side with the board members. Of course we know that these problems started about a year ago.
Yep, that’s our St. Louis.
* Doesn’t matter to their owner, because just the change in city name has made his franchise a lot more valuable. Remember, NFL ratings all around are down Week 1 this season compared to Week 1 last season, and I think all the BLM/SJW crap is turning (white) people off.
* WRPT. All I read was the headline. Spanish language surnames.
* Their morning show is my morning daily driver, mainly because it crosses over well with my line of work. But I rarely do or have any reason to listen to that station any other time. I will admit that, compared to what I have been told about Emmis’s similar station in Indianapolis, KFTK is a lot less annoyingly neo-con.
* Does not compute. This is what he and his kind were brought here to do, and it’s why St. Louis’s civic leaders want to import Syrians. To bing-bang and combat the black undertow.
* I don’t think they’ll have much trouble getting convictions. Where I get off the train is with this notion that it will solve anything. It will actually make things worse in the short term, because the last time the Feds did this in Chicago, it messed up the gang structures, gang organizations and gang boundaries so badly that there was a lot of shooting in order to iron out a new set of arrangements. I also don’t buy the notion that decapitating big time gang leaders means the foot soldiers will suddenly tuck tail and go home.
* The good news for the people that benefit from all this immigration is that when this ticking time bomb explodes, they won’t suffer any of the consequences. Arranging things such that you reap the benefits while never experiencing any of the negative effects — Nice work if you can get it.
* Soros may have finally met his Waterloo. Don’t mess with Joe too much, or he’ll have you living in a tent wearing pink underwear.
What this means is that the Eye of Soros is staring at Idaho for some reason.
* Because he doesn’t look like Haven Monahan. That is my secondary pet theory about the genesis of the paranoia about college campus “rape culture,” in order to create a diversion from the campus rapes that are actually happening, because black men, especially black scholarship athletes, are committing them.
* One day soon, these people will be standing on corner with signs around their necks reading, “WILL UNPACK YOUR WHITE PRIVILEGE FOR FOOD.”
That may be true, but the down side is that “black and brown people” are being driven out and gentrified out all the while.
racist crazy enough to think that they might be related.
* In spite of the title and most of the body, this very article states why Bill will always be an ace stand-in for Hillary. Fund raising. Which is the only thing these two care about. It’s why she’s yammering on about the alt-right and cartoon frogs, because she’s SPLCizing her campaign in order to chase after the same lucrative donors that write checks to the SPLC and ADL.
* Their dream was pipe. You can’t have Sweden’s domestic social policies with Guatemala’s demographics.
* Give them enough rope to hang themselves, and they’ll do just that, every time. And, in the process, self-expose the black undertow.
Note that the “Pilgrim ass cracker” won this confrontation.
* Reality beats ideology. Imagine that.
* I agree that this should be done, and even if housing values in some cities plummet for it, I think that’s a feature, not a bug. I don’t believe the purported reasons, fraud and money laundering concerns. The reason why this needs to be done, and I think the people doing it will admit to this in private, but are hiding behind fraud and money laundering, is that native born citizens shouldn’t have to compete with rich Chinese stashing dough outside the reach of their own government just to be able to live in some cities in their own countries. A competition that the natives usually lose. It’s a nationalist/citizenist concern, and we know that’s evil.
The housing market in Sydney is so overheated and insane that people of median means have to live so far away from Sydney that it’s a two hour one-way train commute.
* Why not just open the book? In some cases, the books are very fragile and opening them is ruining them.
At the very least, we know who won’t have any use for this technology.
* Dildos on the IoT? What the (actual) fuck?
* I complained here in the recent past that the people who run ESPN online polls of the sort that show you state-by-state color coded maps in its results, should not use both red and green for state colors, because ESPN’s audience is men, and 10% of men of central-norther-western European ethnic extraction are red-green colorblind. I thought of that last year when a regular season NFL game used experimental uniforms, and both teams looked like they were wearing the same color.
* Who are you going to believe? SJW/BLM/media narrativemongers, or his lying eyes?
Cops go where the crime is, or seems to be, or is said to be. And black football players tend to commit a lot of crime.
The only other option is to believe that there’s a deliberate evil KKKonspiracy afoot against black football players. The fact that so many LAPD officers turned one blind eye after another after another over the years to OJ Simpson’s domestic abuse, seems to belie that.
* Tuesday was the 20 years to the day of Tupac Shakur being murdered. There are a lot of things one can legitimately think of him, but “feminist” and “pro-choice” should not be among them.
If I didn’t read the article, I would have thought that the “feminist” idea came from his song “Dear Mama,” which contained these lyrics: “And even as a crack fiend mama, you always was a black queen mama.” As well as a lot of other contradictory hot ghetto mess.
* From May 4 to May 9 in 2012, this blog’s tagline, provided to me by one of my regular commenters, who, now that I think about it, I haven’t seen here for a long time, (where’d you go, RJP?), was “Because you never want to be nude in a hotel that’s losing money.”
* Care to guess why “HARAMBE” was prohibited for a few days? Hint: Think about the jokes that some people make, and think about the 70% racial demographic of NFL players.
* Oh yeah, I want to be fly on the wall of that dorm room. It’s going to end with one of them accusing at least one of the others of either *-ism, *-phobia, privilege, or the word “problematic.”
* If there was anything stupid about this idea, it wasn’t engineering, or execution, but desirability. Especially considering the events of the last three years. I’m even disheartened to find out that the Nazis didn’t do anything but laugh this idea into a gas chamber. They should have at least had some instinctual aversion to having Europe and Africa be the same land mass.
The Mediterranean Sea is Europe’s friend, it’s a purple refugee people eater.
* The European Space Agency’s GAIA mission has released the first of what is expected to be six annual data dumps, as it sets out to take the biggest star census in the history of human scientific endeavor. As an aside, in my wrap-up two weeks ago, I had an article about another craft that is, like GAIA, parked out at Earth-Moon L2. Back to GAIA, I actually have a piece of software that, as of its latest update, can directly access GAIA star data remotely, without having to download the whole data set. I’ll check out bits and pieces of the sky comparing GAIA to lesser star databases, though since my telescope is only an 8-inch S-C, my practical limiting magnitude even with clean glass and perfect atmospheric conditions and the least light pollution of anywhere within a few hours’ drive of home is around 14.5, and UCAC4 contains all stars down to mag 16.5.
How impactful is GAIA? This first data dump gave us the basic positioning information on 1,142 million stars, lim mag 20, accuracy 300 μas. (Later years’ data dumps will include proper motion, parallax, improved positional accuracy, and all the good stuff.) By comparison, the aforementioned UCAC4, which was an entirely terrestrial project by the USNO over many years (1998-2012) in Flagstaff, Arizona and La Serena, Chile, yielded a 113 million star survey. The ESA’s previous stellar census, TYCHO, a near Earth orbiting satellite, 1989-1993, yielded 2.5 million stars. Star charts for those that use binoculars, lim mag 7.5, give you 25,000 stars. There are about 9,000 stars that are naked-eye visible, provided best conditions, mag 6.5.
