    I don't have any idea where it came from, either. It seems to be one of dannno's idées fixes (which is the only reason I ever mentioned it at all). That's exactly why I said the following in post #95: I have no particular problem with any of this. In fact, I even agree with much of it, to at least some degree. I think that Trump was a hapless narcissist and that most of the good things - and bad things, for that matter - about his Presidency were more or less accidental. At any rate, they certainly weren't the result of any multi-dimensional strategy or adherence to any set of principles on his part. Much of the value that came out of his administration (such as the red-pilling exposure of the corporate media as a bunch of mendacious hacks) was due not so much to Trump himself, but to the unhinged lunacy he triggered among his enemies and critics in the Cathedral. As far as I'm concerned, Trump qualifies as being better than his living-memory predecessors for just those reasons. (And consider just how fucked up things have to be, for that to be the case ...) I just find it vastly amusing that some (not you) will contort themselves into the most grotesquely warped of pretzels merely in order to avoid admitting that Trump had any serious flaws (such as his half-assed gun grabbery) or that he is at all responsible for any of the negative aspects of his administration (such as his lousy cabinet picks and other appointments). It is truly a thing to be marveled at ...

    Nothing at all should be done in the Machiavellian world that is the sewer of D.C. - precisely because that is exactly what it is. So fuck that place. A few remnant flame-keepers (such as Ron Paul or Thomas Massie) are the best to hoped for from that direction. If he hadn't been dead, he certainly would have been impotent and helpless (even more so than Trump). Change, if it comes at all, will not come from the top down.

    JFC. There's always some excuse, no matter how lame and/or bizarre ... #MAGAlogic (NOTE: In the following, those who are so inclined should substitute "Satanic pedophile" in place of "bad, awful person.") "Since Presidents can't just install anyone they please in their cabinets, they can't really be held responsible for any bad, awful person who ends up there." "Presidents can't just fire a bad, awful person in their cabinets, because it might not 'work out'." "The best way to find out if someone is a bad, awful person is to give that person power." #1 is the epitome of lame-ass shuck-and-jive excuses.

    CIA Embraces Left-Wing Ideology, Leftists Deny That This Is Happening https://mtracey.substack.com/p/cia-embraces-left-wing-ideology-leftists Michael Tracey (04 May 2021) In a mind-blowing marketing video first published on March 25, but which had escaped widespread notice until recent days, the CIA enthusiastically endorsed several key tenets of what has now indisputably become a hegemonic left/liberal ideological and rhetorical construct: “I am a woman of color,” the video’s protagonist, an unnamed CIA officer, triumphantly proclaims. “I am a cisgender millennial who’s been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I am intersectional, but my existence is not a box-checking exercise.” She continues, “I used to struggle with imposter syndrome. But at 36, I refuse to internalize misguided patriarchal ideas of what a woman can or should be. I am tired of feeling like I’m supposed to apologize for the space I occupy.”

    So what does this mean in actual practice? That is, what is one permitted to actually do with respect to a private business that hosts and enforces such signage? Is one who refuses to comply with the signage entitled to force a business to provide its goods or services anyway? By the logic of Eric's argument, it must be that the answer to this question is "yes" - because, by reductio ad absurdum, if one is not so entitled, then it cannot be the case that the signage (and the enforcement of the policy conveyed by it) is an "assault upon" or "violation of" one's rights. After all, any such assault or violation would entitle one to use force in order to effectuate respect for one's rights (because that is what is necessarily implied by the concept of "rights" in the first place).

    You are right. It doesn't mean that. What it does mean (and this was my point in posting the story) is that putting faith in the courts to "do the right thing" is idiotically misguided. It's a gamble at absolute best. Even worse, in the case of Trump's bump stock EO, it's a gamble that doesn't even have any payoff if you win - at best, you'll just get a return to the status quo ante. Trump's executive-order bump-stock shenanigans were stupid and foolish, and even if we put the most charitable 3D-chess MAGA-fu spin on them (instead of just accepting the obvious fact that Trump was a half-assed gun grabber), they were all risk in return for no gain. I'll say this again for the third time, because it so aptly summarizes even the best outcome that can be hoped for:

    Since when is the "We got a badass over here" meme "gay"? It's been all over the interwebz for many moons and it's used by all sorts of folks. There are several samples in the various "bestest picture thread evarrr"-s.
  8. The reason I have no use for monarchies is it's complete pot luck what you get. If your generation gets a Victoria, you could be in worse shape (assuming her advisors aren't lying to her about what they're doing), but if you get an Ivan the Terrible you're screwed. I prefer a system that at least holds out hope for nonviolent revolution, whether people are generally smart enough to use it or not.

    And I'm pretty sure you meant neither Bismarck nor the kaiser.

    You're right, I should have said the Kaiser, not Bismarck. :/ (My WWI history is rather rusty...I do remember Hitler suffered from mustard gas inhalation during that war and a bunch of other factoids) Yeah, monarchs have been somewhat fascist in certain occasions, but they always had incentive not to destroy their subjects' economy or their own respective societies as presidents and prime ministers or even legislators do. (such elected officials almost always leave office very wealthy and almost never face justice for their misdeeds) Generally speaking, the best to worst scale goes- voluntary association with government>hereditary monarchy>monarchy>classical republicanism>modern constitutionalism>democracy etc.
