Hillary


First AOC, now Hillary.

As the 2016 election was nearing, Hillary’s pollsters were giving her daily polls.  The story is that she decided that she didn’t want to hear them any more, because they stated how the people viewed her as unlikable.  Maybe not paying attention to these polls cost her the election.

To the larger point, women don’t like not being liked.  So Hillary, a woman (?), no doubt experienced extra feelings and butthurt from this.  A fella, on the other hand, has the option of not being liked. Respect might be enough for him.  Or he might just live as a hermit and not care.  He has options.

As for Hillary, well she is truly unlikable.  People sense it.  They sense that it is all about her.  They sense the lack of concrete principles.  They sense the phony veneer that attempts to cover it this all up.  Perhaps this veneer is the thing that puts it over the top with respect to dislike.  If she presented herself as she truly was, then there might be some respect coming.

Of course, not all people sense this nature within Hillary.  One wonders about these people…

    Hmm…
    “I’m an elitist politician who used my position to approve weapons transfers to hostile foreign actors and launder money. I ruined American healthcare while my husband was in office, and had no interest or inclination toward foreign policy beyond expanding my personal bank account while in office. Unfortunately a lot of people died as a result of my incompetence, and we’ll never really know how much harm I caused. Actually, if I were only what I seem to be, a fatuous empty Kim Jong Un pantsuit, I’d be a much better person!”

    I’m thinking…Nah.

    According to my unscientific poll asking every woman I see, Beto reminds them of the worst boyfriend they ever had: self-involved, convinced of his own charm, chronically late if he shows up at all, worth a meal or two but definitely not marriage material. When he should be home with the kids or taking out the trash, he’s jamming with his garage band or skateboarding at Whataburger. He’s “in and out of a funk” which requires long and meaningful runs to clear his head. Every thought he has is transcendent, worthy of being narrated, videotaped, and blogged. He is always out finding himself. At age 46, the man asking to run the country is currently lost.

    In a March 11, 2010 newspaper article in The Detroit News, Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s (D-MI) father accused her of lying “big-time to get elected” by falsifying her address on an election affidavit.

    “She lied,” Elabed said. “She lied big-time to get elected. I never teach her that way. I teach her the right way.”?

    Someone I liked and respected enormously was a Friend of Hill. The Clintons did fundraisers at her places in NYC and Martha’s Vineyard. She never said a cross or skeptical word about The Hill. (She was afraid of The Predator, with good reason.)

    My suspicion is that Hillary is one of those loathesome creatures who charms the shit out of people who have something she wants, or are the sort of people she wishes she were. And stomps all over absolutely everyone else, as they are mere fungible commodities impairing her Trip to Immortality.

    I’m sure she finds Kim Jong-Un and Saddam and Ceaucescu and Stalin and Idi Amin amusing in their governing, genocidal style. I really mean this.

    ***

    All the establishment polling had Clinton crushing Trump a month before the election. All the establishment media, same, and that’s all she reads. All her friends, same, so they were busy sucking up to the next most powerful person in the world. I’m sure she thought she was hallucinating when the actual results were posted. The Democrat Party is going through the same convulsions now because their Russia Russia Russia fantasy is rotting like a seven day old corpse in a three day town.

    OT:
    Yesterday Mike and I attempted trail running.
    It was a family outing, and the boys took a different car because they said they were going to go on a long hike…
    We just planned a short run/walk. We chose a trail that said, 3.5 miles. Okay, we’ll be done with that soon enough….no need for water or our cell phones, or the GPS watch Mike usually wears. So we set out.
    At some point we saw some mountain climbing, and Mike wanted to check it out so we went that way (we were walking) up and up for a while. Then back down. Figured we had about a mile left but the trail just….kept….going. Eventually we reached a point where it said the end of the trail. Though the map had looked like a loop it actually just hit a road and the 3.5 miles was in one direction. We didn’t want to go another 3.5 so we took the road back….but it didn’t go quite in the right direction. Then we took some more trails…
    We probably hiked about 9 miles with the mountain hike added by the time we got back it had been almost 3 hours and I was worried.
    “What if the boys are done and they can’t get a hold of us?!”
    “What if they got hurt and need us and we’ve been away this long?!?”
    We get back to the car and their car is gone.
    So they’d made it back and left.
    “Oh no! They must be worried sick about us!”

    We unlock the car and see they’d texted something!
    A single photo from the top of a mountain.
    That was it.

    Ame, the “Belle of the LIbrary” is a toxic feminist who convicts the suicide while praising herself for tryng not to be too judgy of anyone and gosh she just feels so bad for humanity. It’s a slurry of “I’m so sensitive and open-minded” virtue signalling. If he was falsely accused, she should say so because the murderers are the little darlings who made shit up. “Oh … but consent … and respect … who’s to know … I can’t formulate a thought … or sentence … I have no moral compass… so I use ellipses.” I have no idea what happened there, so I’d recommend she stop patting herself on the back for being uber-sensitive … romance novelish … until she does.

    Two notes:

    SOP in an American jail is they take your shirt away and give you a stretchy soft cotton undershirt that immediately tears if pulled (not saying how I know). There are no “light fixtures” in a jail cell to hang yourself from. Where I live 16 year-old boys who are confused about the meaning of “consent” or “respect” are going to juvie, not the drunk tank. A 16 year old boy or girl who is accused of something heinous is put in a solitary cell and placed under 24-hour video surveillance. Heck, the last time I was in jail in this country (for some real nasty shit: I thought I was over the limit and because I harbor hopes of flying again, I cannot get a DUI, I chose to walk home, all of six blocks) *the drunk tank* is under 24 hours, lighted video surveillance.

    Liz: I gather that “kids today” have GPS or wearable GPS so they can’t/don’t-know-how-to land navigate, they just go where the little thingy beeps to go. That’s what son #1 does.

    But man I enjoy a cheap Silva compass, pencil and a topo in the high mountains. I should think you and The Fighter Pilot would, particularly if he ever flew a little plane with chart, pencil, whiskey compass, and the second hand of a wristwatch (I know your Dad did). (And a little flashlight with a rubber fixture at one end so you could illuminate, navigate and aviate simultaneously. (You bite down on the rubber thingy to hold the penlight on the chart.))

    Orienteering is fun. Declination, bearing and range, time to next fix: there’s a lovely Venn diagram showing intersection of little airplane, coastal trawler, alpine trekking navigational skills. The topos are immaculate and show every tramped down little trail. You live in such a wonderful area for active people.

    I’m so mature my grandfathers both installed whiskey compasses on every car. When driving I prefer paper maps because a Garmin doesn’t tell me where I am, it just tells me which monkey hand to move. (I do like GPS for such things as ETA, speed alerts, and dense urban neighborhoods where I can’t look down.) The old truck I’m picking up in Staunton VA is going to get a compass — and, if it can be done, I’ll have someone drill the windshield and have the only Ford diesel with a TSO’d OAT gauge.

    Post-surgical trannies kill themselves at 19x the rate of the general distribution. Apologies if I’ve already mentioned this to exhaustion.

    The American, premier research physician who pioneered surgical alteration was Paul McHugh, Johns Hopkins. He repudiated his work in old age, and considers what these morons call “gender dysphoria” a psychological, not a biological or even neurological problem. Surprise: 1% of the population is totally fucked up in the head and should get help, not public policy positions of weight.

    For me, the dark side is that Merriam-Webster pays (trust me now: a female or a gay guy or someone who hasn’t a fucking clue what s/he is) to write definitions of junk science (secular religious) beliefs. And if you disagree with the little SJW, you will be fired, your career will be over, half your friends will evaporate.

    Ask the little twit who wrote that definition: “Oh really. Say, what is the scientific method, anyhow. Since this definition of “transgender” is scientifically verified.”

    “You’re traumatizing me, I don’t feel safe, blahahahahahaha.”

    Publishing now employs people solely to measure a text’s compliance with received wisdom. What is received wisdom? Glad you asked! MIlan Kundera defined it elegantly: thoughty sorta meaningfully words that add up to “kitsch.” Words as grotesque tchotchkes in a whorehouse. Wordz that produce comfort and feelz. And he was Czech (well, he’s still alive but being unfairly ignored) during the Soviet reign.

    Speaking of Hillary,

    According to Lynch, the conversation was indeed innocuous. They really did just talk about their grandchildren and his golfing and other harmless topics, she claims.

    But according to her, Bill basically barged onto her plane before she even knew what was happening. And according to her, he just kept talking and talking and talking, about nothing in particular, even after she gave him several clear indications that she needed to get going. He stayed so long, she started to worry about how it would appear to the public if word got out.

    So here’s my crazy idea. Just bear with me for a minute:

    What if Loretta Lynch is telling the truth?

    I know, I know. It’s insane. But listen: What if Bill only wanted to give the impression that he was inappropriately intervening? What if he knew exactly how it would look, and wanted it to look that way? What if he knew everybody would assume he was lying, because he usually is? What if he knew a lot of people will never, ever trust the guy who said this?

    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was probably expecting some criticism after her new documentary “Knock Down the House” was released on Netflix this month, but she likely did not expect it for the way her boyfriend looks.

    A French feminist writer, Marie Le Conte, attacked Riley Roberts’ appearance on Twitter Friday, causing some outrage and a series of jokes.

    “Apologies for the blatantly mean tweet but THIS is what AOC’s boyfriend looks like? incredible scenes, truly representing all the ambitious and stunning millenial women shackled to boyfriends who look like bin raccoons out there,” Conte said.

    Trans Activist Challenges Internet: Look at My Massive ‘Bulge’ and Say I’m Not a ‘Real Woman’

    Imogen Loxley, a 27-year-old from Sydney, Australia, said she had been inspired to display the contours of her penis and testicles after witnessing an injustice a day earlier. On her way to pick up her hormone treatment, Loxley told the Daily Star, she had seen a group of people harassing a transgender teenager.

    Loxley explained that by sharing a selfie of her own “#untucked” manhood in pink underwear, she hoped to prove to “cis society” that transgender women are “real women” and “equal human beings.”

    But according to Loxley, people should be able to tell she is a woman, rather than a man, simply by moving their gaze upward from her “elephant” penis, past her breast implants, to her surgically altered and heavily made-up face.

    “Ok, we all see the elephant in my photo, no pun intended… but now look up at my face, you see a woman, right? Good,” she said. “Because even if I have my bulge out like this, or if you see a trans* woman on the street with a visible bump or bulge in her pants, she still identifies as a WOMAN and a bump or bulge doesn’t make her ANY LESS of a woman!”

While I don’t think this is an enormous story (the flooding) it does seem interesting to me, on the order of I-80 being shut down by earth quakes. This is how 1993 was handled by national media, but they don’t cover flyovers any longer.

    The Venezuelan embassy in D.C. is being occupied by liberal American protesters who are refusing to leave, and are shouting at demonstrators from Venezuela about what’s best for them.

    This is like something out of Babylon bee. Or the Onion.
    When I was a moderator for the political debate forum long ago, we had a participant who was born and raised in Venezuela, and left after Chavez took over (he was posting from Spain). The liberals would praise Chavez and spout inaccuracies…he would attempt to correct them. They, having never traveled outside the US, asserted that he must be a rich elitist. He said his dad had owned a small store and his mom was a school teacher…they were lower middle class, not even upper. They said he needed to watch “The Revolution Will Not be Televised” (a pro-Chavez propaganda film) and educate himself.

    Does that forum still exist? If so, why? Frankly, I don’t see anything to debate anymore, as one side basically hates the other side and wants to either kill or enslave them. “Our” side quit actively fighting long ago, and has been in retreat for over a hundred years.

    No. It ended years ago, but it had a very good run for a while.
    Back in the day we had a lot of experts in different areas, and participants around the globe. That’s before social media was widespread and people were a lot less cautious about their backgrounds and personal information. A lot has changed since then.

    Friend of ours used to fly into Venezuela (United captain). I don’t think they fly there any more. About four years ago he said they always had heavily armed escorts to their hotel, and the Venezuelan hotels wouldn’t take their own currency….they accepted US dollars only. They had some sort of go-between in the states that would process the credit cards and give them US money.

    Just as an aside, we were actually able to keep the debates civil in there (relatively). The rules were strict, that’s necessary…but also time consuming. In the end, interest waned as people searched for forums more reflective of their belief systems…or just got offline and stopped debating. It was fun for a while, good mental exercise having to defend my belief systems or trying to persuade (which actually happened, but rarely).

    I just bought back yesterday my 7.3 3/4 ton from a buddy’s mountain farm in the Blue Ridge. Halfway home, just humming along, RPMs don’t even change going through the mountains on cruise, which is why I put up with the inconvenience of diesel in a cold climate.

    It was his firewood truck, though, and needs a new steering box, I think. And I think there’s a current leak, which will be hell to find. Thinking of chipping it and going with anti-social pipes, now that I also have a ‘respectable’, quiet new Hemi to drive to church. My friend did me the favor of new ball joints and tie rods, plus those are new 10-ply mudders.

    That’s a great looking truck. I have a 6.0 myself and, though many live up to their lowly reputation, mine’s been pretty damn great for the last 13 years. It helped to do some research and head off the 6.0 issues early. It’s going to a new owner this summer and for some crazy reason I keep checking out the first gen Cummins Dodges as a low tech beater replacement. The 7.3 would be next on my list, and probably a more intelligent choice.

    All the diesels seem to have some problems, at least since they started trying to meet the performance of gasoline engines. The 7.3 has it’s fuel foaming, no tank return line, issue, the 6.0 has sand in the block/EGR cooler, head stud, CAC tube problems, all stuff you can deal with if you are a combination of lucky and smart. My 6.0 runs great (but I maintain it like and exotic car) but we had a 6.0 ranch truck that was the whole catalog of issues. In reality diesel should be a tractor: slow, steady, and stupid. When you try to get too fancy (as every automaker does these days) you are bound for trouble. Like a lot of technology diesel hit a break over point when it came to simplicity/complexity in the 1990s and further development hasn’t really done much. Offer me a new vehicle with a 1st gen Cummins B, Land Rover 300 TDI, Mercedes OM617, or VW Pump Duse and I’d take it in a second. These days it’s a complicated and expensive trade off.

    Never owned a Dodge/Cummins, or even driven one. (My town truck is a Dodge 5.7.)

    Where I live, a farmer who wants to be seen as cash-flowing, or one who pulls his own pigs or beef, buys a diesel. (“I can spend $8000 extra; can you?) The two most successful farmers I know are driving gas. This makes sense especially if one recognizes that they absolutely, positively cannot be seen driving an older truck. A person pays a social penalty if he’s not driving new. (Maxim of the day: most people live in high school.)

    I always figured you bought diesel if you were going to keep the vehicle for a long time, but that may be a mentality that comes from the old slow but steady take on diesel that has vanished with all the high tech torque wars and such. There are things I like about diesel but no one in my community knows or cares about that sort of thing at all. In fact, should anyone give it a second thought, which is rare, driving a oil burner tends to indicate that you’re some sort of Euro weirdo or, if the onlooker has a keen sense of culture, a deplorable (a type few around here ever think about or imagine meeting in the flesh). From my own perspective, I just like interesting vehicles: cars, trucks, whatever. I’ve had a wide variety of muscle and sports cars, and all sorts of trucks. Oddly, my favorite was a PD VW. If you want to be seen as cash-flowing around here you probably drive a BMW M5 or one of the exotics … which sounds like fun for a day or two!

    Case in point a collegue’s wife of mine will fully admit, “Her goal in life is to do nothing but be a country club wife” is this way. I am not one for designer clothing or fancy cars myself, not because I don’t know of or appreciate them, but simply because where I live the effort would be lost on most so I am far more likely to wear an old barn coat and muck boots than designer duds. However a recent project has me working with her and she’s been very difficult. Until the meeting where I showed up head to toe on Ralph Lauren (casuals, cords, cashmere, and a silk scarf plus ankle boots, not a suit) and her jaw hit the floor. I caught her envious looks several times that night but suddenly the aloof shrew was my kissing up lap dog. It was pretty interesting! Lol!
