An icky yet moraly confusing story

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 30, 2010

Dude is gonna play football, but he is tainted cuz when he was sixteen he had sex with a fifteen year old.

The Rub (ick) is that it was his sister, not an adopted sister, but his sister.

That’s gross.  But he was a Kid, the moment was consensual, and gross, but I don’t think gross should be illegal, though very very gross.  Now, he has to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

Nailing your sister is gross, and you shouldn’t do it, but punishing this cat for the rest of his life?  I don’t know which opinion is more powerful in my mind.  The sense of injustice in him spending the rest of his life with a scarlet letter, or him going to town on his little sister.  Both are unpleasant thoughts.

My questions are:

Is she hot?

and

Does She have to register as a sex offender for the rest of her life?

and the comments have a few great moments, I laughed out loud at jeffs at 3:57 Pm, only just a little bit into the comments.

The 80%

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 24, 2010

The title is a reference to something that a lot of people reference, and I can’t find a cite, that you shouldn’t fight with people who agree with you 80% of the time, and disagree only 20%.

That argument was used with McCain, that argument has been used with Lincoln Chaffee and with the Maine girls.

It’s also been used by James Joyner (VERY Bright guy, and a valuable resource.) and Doug Mataconis (good research) and the others at Outside the Beltway, as well as Rick Moran, who has a flair for the word, and I believe is a classical liberal, which fits my general political style, of “Rightwingnuthouse.”

But I am sick of being told to stop arguing with people who agree with me philosophically 80% of the time.  Not because I don’t think 80% politically isn’t enough of an agreement, but I am sick of those who assign themselves in the 80% who agree, philosophically, tend to spend 80% of their time bashing those who agree with them 80%.

I have come to the conclusion that the entire concept of the “80%” is actually a farce used by those who find satisfaction in bashing their philosophical and political brethren to gain status with others.  That doesn’t change that they are good people, or are, in fact, 80% or 60 or there about percentage in agreement with conservatives, and definitely much more informed than I.  That isn’t my problem.

My problem is, why do you directly insult, or insinuate insult or completely ignore the 80% you agree with in your essays, only to focus on the 20%?

It makes me mad.  Another member of this group (though I think if he counts himself 80% his math is really really bad.)

David Brooks.

A Column by David Brooks, one of the 80%.

In 1811, the popular novelist Fanny Burney learned she had breast cancer and underwent a mastectomy without anesthesia.

Thanks for that, what’s the point?

Burney’s struggle reminds one that character is not only moral, it is also mental. Heroism exists not only on the battlefield or in public but also inside the head, in the ability to face unpleasant thoughts.

“Reminds one,” meaning Brooks, because he’s smart enough to reference someone from 1811, Brooks is reminded, because he’s so smart, and you who aren’t reminded are Dumb.

In the mental sphere, this meant conquering mental laziness with arduous and sometimes numbingly boring lessons.

He’s paraphrasing there, so that you stupid people can understand what the well known novelist, who not many, and virtually none of the general populace actually, you “know” and almost definitely not well.  It’s important for you who don’t know her, or him, well, then you are mentaly lazy.

Capitalism has also undermined this ethos.

Here Brooks proves his pure conservative nature by attacking capitalism, since choosing what is valuable and making up your own mind is against those things that are well known, Like Fanny Burney.  Capitalism is why she’s not well known, and looking out for your own self interests instead of listening to those who know that Fanney Burney is well known, well, that’s just “mental laziness”

You Mentally Lazy buffoons!  Don’t you understand the importance of a well creased pant leg?!

In this atmosphere, we’re all less conscious of our severe mental shortcomings and less inclined to be skeptical of our own opinions.

9 paragraphs in a small op-ed, and now we get to it!

It’s important to be skeptical of our own opinions and we should learn how to be skeptical from someone who asked no significant questions of Obama, bashed Palin and wrote a book about bush being dumb but effective.

YES!  Superhero with an Op-Ed, When will you teach the Special forces how to do their job?  We all know You are so much better than everyone else, that we need a guy like you in the warzone!

We have confirmation bias; we pick out evidence that supports our views. We are cognitive misers; we try to think as little as possible. We are herd thinkers and conform our perceptions to fit in with the group.*

“We have confirmation bias,”  Yes “we” do, it’s called, “opinion” and “judgment.”  as for “We are herd thinkers and conform our perceptions to fit in with the group.” I am curious as to who he is calling “we.”

Is he using the Well Known, “Royal We?”  he’s speaking for all of us?  Probably, but he also has the right since he is familiar with the well known author who wrote a personal letter and essay about 160 years before I was born.  How stupid of me to not have the Fanney Burney collection in my personal library.

Lacking that, I must clearly listen to this light of logic and meaning, but wait!  we are about to learn what David Brooks, the connoisseur  of 200 year old essays, judge of mental laziness and creseelines.

The rigors of combat discourage it.

Yes David Brooks, it’s all about the rigors of combat.  David Brooks to replace Petraeus.

*Notice that the reference for this quote is a manager of Berkeshire Hathaway.  Another person that all you idiots should be familiar with.

Not Good

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 24, 2010

It looks like a lone lunatic who was able to inflict harm, but in Manila 8 hostages were killed by a wackjob, he had to have targeted a tourist bus for the act, I don’t see a cop (even a really dumb one) just lucking out with a rip target like that.

Sorry for those Hong Kong tourists who suffered.

As a suggestion, If it takes more than one shot, they are not snipers, they are shooters, so, please, stop doing that press.

Lunar Landscape

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 17, 2010

What causes the boulders to be freed up and to roll around in the regolith?   There is no atmosphere, or vulcanism that we know of.  Is it just the tidal forces of the earth? Was there an impact that upset the crust?  The picture looks pretty cool Though.  also those boulders look remarkably round.

Other than being a cool picture, it’s also kinda fascinating.  What is the source of erosion? are they all ejecta from impacts? or celestial objects that remained whole?  And why are they moving and rolling, what looks to be a significant distance in the weak gravity of the moon.

The Elites

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 15, 2010

They don’t make these half assed decisions because they are more thoughtful.

They are halfassed because they are idiots with degree’s focusing on nothing that has an verifiable return and then make a bunch of money because they have the skill to obfuscate every damn thing they say, into something that means nothing.

It isn’t that they are so THOUGHTFUL, it’s that they are SO DECEPTIVE.

And yes, you get a moment of WP ego.  I’m a Genius,  I’m the most brilliant handyman that you might ever come across, and I don’t give a damn if I’m poor.  If you knew me in life, I would likely be the most fascinating mind you ever came across, but I don’t give a damn about that either, What I got in my noggin, and a buck oh seven will buy me a McChicken (depending on taxes.)

These people GENUINELY think they are better than you and me, and they are wrong, they are IDIOTS!,  I wouldn’t trust them to clean my toilet!  (that’s my job, gotta pay the rent) meanwhile they treat You and ME  (ME?!  MORONS!  I AM! LITERALLY a Genius! you friggen imbeciles!) and they want to control your life, and think that only they know what is right.

Who in their RIGHT EFFING MIND VOTES FOR THESE PEOPLE!?!?!?!  Apparently there is a voting block that consists of people even dumber than these retards.

RIDICULOUS!

Best Family EVER!

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 11, 2010

I think I might be related to the Jet Blue, F You Attendendant.

When you think of your mom, or rather other peoples moms, you think of that caring nurturing and sometimes overbearing bundle of love who is nice to all of your friends, even the friends she doesn’t like.   This guys mom?  Not so much.  She goes straight for the balls.

“I would have snapped, too,” insisted the mother, a former flight attendant now battling lung cancer. “In fact, I probably would have snapped more.”

and then think of your kindly old grandfather who sits in a nice chair smoking a pipe and has all kinds of folksy yet wise advice.  Yeah, that’s not this guys grandfather.  This Guys Grampa is GRADE A AWESOME!

Neithamer’s grandfather, Harry, 82, said the incident was clearly the passenger’s fault.

“That passenger must a bitch, just a pure bitch, because nobody else could get him wound up like that,” the granddad told The Post.

Those are the kinds of quotes that just scream “Yeahp, this is genuine.” unlike all of the political and sanitized BS you get all too often.  You want to know if a quote is real, and that a character reference is sincere?  You find the guy who’s willing to say, “Yeah, he had a little trouble at his last job, but that’s because the customer was a maniacal BITCH!”  That is heartfelt sentiment right there.

I think his family should be interviewed for every incident that is broadcast on the news.  It could be a late night show.  Like nancy grace, only topical and less insane, while still being entertaining.

Honestly, what do they have to lose?

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 10, 2010

The lame duck pushing of new entitlements and stuff only makes sense.

Especially if you are in a vulnerable district or seat or whatever.  You are so insanely corrupt, that if you lose the power of congress only to a level that allows you to be incapable of overriding a veto, in 2 years, the Dem’s can say “Yeah, what did THEY accomplish in two years?  Things are even worse!”  Because, in the lame duck, all of the sore losers burn bridges and salt the fields leaving the incoming ‘pubs with an even worse situation, while the pres will veto everything ‘pubs offer.

Meanwhile the outgoing ones, at least the influential or needy ones, are gonna collect their pensions as well as “private” pay from the entities they corrupted government for.

What do people with only a sense of personal value, and no sense of public service have to lose by hammering in a grotesque legislation that their enemies (I do believe that is how they view republicans) have to deal with against great opposition from the Exec, in terms of veto, lawsuits and offsetting regulation?

They will get their banner jobs, collecting cash, and then laughing in their champagne cocktails without a concern.  They will be accepted at universities talking about how they took part in the expansion of social justice and collect a paycheck for it, while Code Pink and La Raza delivers external security for their speeches.

What do they have to lose?

Nothing.

So I wouldn’t be at all surprised if they do follow through on the “lame duck” tactic, because they are already fired, they already lost their job, and they already are lined up to collect the fruits of their corruption.

Don’t scoff this off.

Hey libs

Posted by mesablue on August 10, 2010

What’s funny is, the place I found this wanted to prove the opposite point of what is actually the “real” point.

So, once again — Hey libs!

Antoine Dodson

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 8, 2010

This is already old, I only decided to click  it Saturday at The Other McCain’s place, but it’s still excellent, and wouldn’t post it if it wasn’t for the moves by Dodson and having watched the extended version.

The Man is even trying to monetize himself.  Good for him.

Also if you scroll down the page, you will find This post Where he shouts out the viral vid, saying he’s negotiating a ringtone, which I think is already a done deal.  He’s also got a T-shirt, already available for a mere $29.95.  I think the $49.95 T-shirt comes with fingerprints.

Just Genius, nice he has a sense of humor, and is taking advantage of an opportunity.

Update:  I can’t believe I didn’t include the last part.   “Our family don’t run around crying and acting sad, we just dust our shoulders off and keep on moving.”

Not a fool, Just Very angry at the time of the interview.

I actually like this guy.

He had a moments rage after helping his sister to NOT be raped, and lost his temper, which in my mind equals, “good effing guy!” and he went off, and a camera just happened to be present, and he became a phenomenon, simply because cameras were there to catch a family very pissed off, and an intrusive reporter asking questions, and then he and his sister were edited to look like fools.  The Gregories/ATTN people saw it, ran with it and now have entered into a contract with them to help out?

If there is humor that is found in the vid, then, in MY OPINION, I think that is good.  Like Antoine the Philosopher said, “dust” yourself off and move on, and find the humor while focusing on the goal.

Catch that bastard, and Eff his Azz up.

(brought about by a conversation with a gamer friend, on a game that I will not admit I play.

John Ausonius

Posted by mesablue on August 6, 2010

Worst. Serial Killer. Ever.

* On August 3, 1991, the Laser Man shot his first person. The victim was a 21 year old immigrant to Sweden from Eritrea, whom Ausonius shot in the back. The victim, however, survived.[3] Two of the victim’s friends said they saw a circle of red light on his body before they heard the shot.

* On the evening of October 21, 1991, outside the Stockholm University, Shahram Khosravi, a 25-year-old student of Iranian origin, was shot in the face but survived.

* On the night of October 27, 1991, a homeless man of Greek origin was shot twice in the stomach. The victim saw a bright red light, heard the shots but managed to run away. Although wounded, he survived.

* In the middle of the day of November 1, 1991, Ausonius walked into a restaurant kitchen in Stockholm where he had seen an immigrant and shot him once in the head and several times in the stomach. The victim, Heberson Vieira Da Costa, a musician from Brazil, saw a red light before he was shot, and got a good look at his assailant. The victim survived, seriously wounded, but was able to give a description of the Laser Man to the police.

* Ausonius continued his shootings and, on November 8, 1991, he mortally wounded Jimmy Ranjbar, another Iranian student, who died the next day.

Ausonius then went to Las Vegas to gamble and visit the Grand Canyon. The Laser Man disappeared for a few months, but he would return.

* On January 22, 1992, Ausonius went to Uppsala, where he walked up to a couple, and shot the man in the head. The victim, Erik Bongcam-Rudloff, was a Ph.D. student in medical sciences. He survived and is now a scientist representing Sweden in several international scientific networks.

* January 23, 1992, back in Stockholm, Ausonius shot a black bus driver, originally from Zimbabwe, in the middle of the day. The victim was shot in the chest but survived.[3] That evening, Ausonius walked into a Somali club in central Stockholm and shot two men, both of whom also survived.

* On the night of January 28, 1992, Ausonius walked up to a kiosk where Isa Aybar, an immigrant of Turkish origin, was working. Ausonius shot him four times in the head and arm, and walked away. Aybar was seriously wounded but managed to call the police and survived.

* On January 30, 1992 Ausonius shot his last victim, from Lebanon, in the head, a store owner in Hägerstensåsen, paralyzing but not killing him.

I’m feeling more than a little sorry for Jimmy Ranjbar.

Drew and Ace are right

About Lindsay graham [ed: I spelled it like Lindsay Lohan, but they are both attention whores, so I see no reason to correct.]  and his constitutional amendment idea.

The question is, “Is he insincere?”

The answer is, “Of course he is!”

People familiar with grahams backgrounds response is,

“Duh.”

Absolute Facts

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 5, 2010

And ambiguous feelings about incomplete Data.

I am NOT a Birther, This horrible horrible president was born in the United states and is “qualified” to be President of The United States of America, but his history of concealment and outright deception and damage control, might, and likely is, the cause for the symptom of “birther,” confusion.  If he didn’t lie constantly, blame everyone, create conspiracy theories of racism, accusations of his muslim faith (he’s not a muslim, he’s not, nor is he a christian or anything other than a narcissist,  he is the one we have been waiting for, so he is god, just ask Oprah.) but what is his paper trail?

Voting present and one speech about opposing Iraq, 8 years before he takes credit for winning it.

So I can understand a broad view that he is hiding something as it applies to anything, seeing as how he has hidden pretty much everything he could about anything that attracts attention, so let me say that Steven L. Taylors derision is overwrought, and unfairly analyzed, at least in my ignorant view.  He asks why only a plurality

“How can it be that only a plurality of Americans “have absolutely no doubts that the president was born in the U.S.”?

Well, maybe because people interpret questions of veracity based on the tellers history of telling the truth?  So most of those who won’t say “absolutely no doubts.” aren’t saying he wasn’t born in Hawaii, but they don’t trust him or his history of obfuscation, so they won’t give him the benefit of the doubt when it comes to anything that is “absolute,” unless it is Vodka, which many more people are more familiar with.

As for

Especially when we have a birth certificate and contemporaneous newspaper birth announcements, along with assurances from the Hawaiian state government?”

Then, that fixes everything.  Here is a famous image of a contemporaneous newspaper report, of a different event, one you think would be valid considering it’s subject matter.

See?  Contemporaneous report proving that Dewey won.

And contemporaneous reports of plastic turkeys.

and contemporaneous reports that Sarah Palin isn’t the mother of Trigg.

Contemporaneous reports that Karl Rove would be indicted within a week.

Birtherism, in it’s original and loopy form, in my opinion, is silly, but a fundamental distrust of this effing guy that is so strong that you kinda go “Eh, you know what?  Maybe even something as loopy as that might not be that effing loopy!”  I can understand that sentiment.  It’s the fool me twice attitude, but using “contemporaneous news accounts.” on something so insignificant as a birth announce being incapable of being fraudulently delivered doesn’t make any sense.  Walter Duranty bub.

Just saying.   It’s not frummish, but it is irritating to use it to depict 58 percent of the populations unwillingness to speak in absolutes, and use it to tar republicans.

I read some celebrity blogs

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 3, 2010

And this is one of the most bizarre posts I have ever read.

If it’s some sort of strange “edgy” underground ad campaign, I say bad.  If it’s all (I see three things in there that make me think this) genuine, then it’s bad.

Overall?  WTF?!

I’ve done some drinking and been present for some very unusual stuff in my time, depending who I was drinking with, but this makes me look like a cub scout.

Again, WTF?

20 percent?

Posted by Wickedpinto on August 3, 2010

REALLY?  Unless they are people like me who just want to watch the show, those 20 percent need to lose their voting privileges revoked (Yes voting is a privilege, representation is a right, different things, though things change.)

20 percent will vote for alvin greene?

Look, I feel sorry for the guy, and he’s getting a bad shake, but really?  20%?  That means I see two people standing in line when I walk out to get smokes who would vote for someone who is clearly developmentally disabled.  And 1 of the store clerks would vote for him.  That’s 3 people, just in the time it takes for me to buy cancer sticks.

But in a “campaign” for a seat in congress, 20% still think it’s a good idea to vote for this guy?   I think it’s fair to say, that more people disapprove of the fact I smoke, than disapprove of sending this clearly developmentally disabled person to congress.

Perhaps the lesson is, at least 20% of congress is retarded.

I think the exit polling would be mad fodder for people who want to bash dems and identity politics.

And this poor guy is gonna be the one everyone blames for the backlash brought about by their own choices.

Pretty damn good, found at gatewaypundit.

Pretty damn good indeed, drawback to convenient participation is that things are poorly scripted, and this guy did a good job putting everything together, with a couple small flubs, but not that easy to deliver a 5 minute speech without some notes, good job bigguy.
