When Being A Woman Isn’t Enough


The American Presidential Primary Season is in full swing.  One of the candidates is Elizabeth Warren, termed Pocahontas by President Trump.  For those who do not know the back story, She claimed to be an American Indian throughout her academic career.  She also rose to what is considered to be the pinnacle of Law Schools, Harvard.  It has since been shown that she is not of any appreciable American Indian descent,; throwing her rise through academia in question.

Everybody here knows that being a woman is useful when applying for desirable white collar positions.  It turns out that fits percent of the population are women, so for an ambitious lady, more of an advantage would be needed.  Membership in a minority group could turn the trick.

Elizabeth Warren and the people who chose/hired her throughout her career swear up and down that her status as a twofer had nothing to do with her rise. Often they have made a big fuss about their denials.  In short, large swaths of people don’t believe them (white men in particular).   The way that it works is that people on selection committees don’t need to be told what is desired.  Why you might ask?  Probably there have been meetings along the way where minority hiring events have been praised, or lamentations made about how few minority staff members there were.  None of this was mentioned at meeting were new staff hiring was discussed, giving plausible deniability.  Everybody there knows the game.  And if they are slow on the update, others will whisper in their ear.

Probably there is no documented evidence in existence that Liz Warren was given preferential treatment.  Probably no administrator got up and said to the selection committed what criteria was really important.  So, it didn’t really happen.

Exit question:  If Hillary had American Indian blood, would she be President now?

    The Tyenindega reserve is 10 minutes down the road. They have been blocking the railroad for 16 days in sympathy for the hereditary chiefs in b.c. who oppose a pipeline on their lands.
    Justin wanted talks before endorsing the injunction to take the barricades down.

    Problem.

    1. The Elected chiefs in b.c. voted for the pipeline and the money it brings
    2. The 5 count em 5 unelected chiefs (two of which ran but lost being official chiefs) represent no one.
    3. The Mohawks of Quinte who run Tyenindega support the pipeline.
    4. The 10 count em 10 members of the Warrior Society blocking the tracks represent no one and are disavoided by their chiefs.

    So the only people you can officially talk to agree with you. The vigilanties causing the issue have no standing to talk to you. So you talk to???

    This wont end by a pretty please from Justin. Its gonna take force that ends badly.

    Us locals are avoiding the res like the plague instead of going down for cheap gas and smokes. Instead getting popcorn for our front row seats.

    P.s. the Res, the rail blockade and CFB Trenton are within 10 miles of each other.

    I don’t know about ‘engineered’ but the there are definitely rumours that Chinese man are particularly vulnerable to it. When the numbers were purely Chinese (let’s be kind and call them unreliable numbers) there was no real way to know. Rumours of CO2 production in China down by 25%, steel demand down by 95%, containerised biological capable incinerators moved to the region.

    Now we’re starting to get better quality data from other countries.

    iirc the British ‘super spreader’ (came back from the far-east via Switzerland and then to the UK) thought nothing of his illness, it was just a normal low level cold/flu as far as he felt.

    There should be plenty of cases in Africa too (plenty of China – Africa flights) but I haven’t heard of a problem (though news might be slow).

    I’m not happy that any population is getting it but the fewer populations that are vulnerable the better for everyone…Shirley?

    Fuck me. (my Boldy)

    According to the PLA Daily, Gen. Chen has been researching coronaviruses since the SARS outbreak of 2003, as well as Ebola and anthrax. This would not be her first trip to the Wuhan Institute of Virology either, since it is one of only two bioweapons research labs in all of China.

    Does that suggest to you that the novel coronavirus, now known as SARS-CoV-2, may have escaped from that very lab, and that Gen. Chen’s job is to try and put the genie back in the bottle, as it were? It does to me.

    Add to this China’s history of similar incidents. Even the deadly SARS virus has escaped — twice — from the Beijing lab where it was — and probably is — being used in experiments. Both “man-made” epidemics were quickly contained, but neither would have happened at all if proper safety precautions had been taken.

    And then there is this little-known fact: Some Chinese researchers are in the habit of selling their laboratory animals to street vendors after they have finished experimenting on them.

    You heard me right.

    Instead of properly disposing of infected animals by cremation, as the law requires, they sell them on the side to make a little extra cash. Or, in some cases, a lot of extra cash. One Beijing researcher, now in jail, made a million dollars selling his monkeys and rats on the live animal market, where they eventually wound up in someone’s stomach.

    Riding in a motorcade in Lima, Peru, shortly after the 2016 election, President Barack Obama was struggling to understand Donald J. Trump’s victory.
    “What if we were wrong?” he asked aides riding with him in the armored presidential limousine.

    He had read a column asserting that liberals had forgotten how important identity was to people and had promoted an empty cosmopolitan globalism that made many feel left behind. “Maybe we pushed too far,” Mr. Obama said. “Maybe people just want to fall back into their tribe.”

    His aides reassured him that he still would have won had he been able to run for another term and that the next generation had more in common with him than with Mr. Trump. Mr. Obama, the first black man elected president, did not seem convinced. “Sometimes I wonder whether I was 10 or 20 years too early,” he said.

    The only possibility of error was timing. With respect to the overall arc of history, how could that be wrong? With Brexit an accomplished fact, globalism under threat from a looming pandemic, and his own party in disarray, it might occur to Obama that his ideology was not 20 years too early so much as a hundred years too old. But it probably won’t. There is no refutation of “this is a moral issue, my friends.”

    I see the Spielberg girl just … scraping by. She looks like a truck stop, meth-addled lot lizard to me. (A lot lizard is a hooker who wanders from truck to truck turning tricks. They’re at no risk of becoming a $1000/hour escort.)

    What fascinated me was the pitch perfect talking points she issued in the National Post story. Each line is a modular component in rote Woke female empowerment. There wasn’t a single extemporaneous sentence. It’s like she was reading off a checklist. An AI bot could not be more on message. And of course her parents (who, instead of getting a vanity plate, opted for the vanity mulatto adopted human being) are taking an “open mind” and are pleased with her bold, intriguing new career path. #stunningandbrave, ya.

    I went out for a fancy (for these environs, $20 is fancy) hamburger, eating at the bar, good red wine, etc. The two bartenders were college-age girls: Maddie and Savannah. Savannah introduced the two of them, exclaiming, “And we’re totally awesome!” (Another AI Bot piece of autospeak.) I mentioned, without thinking, “Well, if you have to advertise it, there might be a problem.” So I was on the shitlist.

    I said, later, “I don’t want the hamburger unless they make it medium rare — hot pink — ‘kay?” And repeated myself in case Striking, Sassy Savannah was thinking about a text message or something. Of course, the burger came medium well.

    “How is everything!” stunning and brave and thoroughly AWESOME! Savannah shouted, leering.

    “Uh, it’s overcooked. See?”

    “Well unfortunately I can’t do anything about that, haha!” And she flounced off to fish for compliments on her awesome awesomeness. Does she realize she’s named after a porn star who killed herself, or an African geological feature? Unclear.

On the contrary, if a rival politician or national figure behaves badly, he calls them out in no uncertain terms, in a most horrifyingly “unpresidential” manner. Likewise, he’s turned the tables on the liberal media (coining the term “fake news”) and forever ended the past Republican tradition of rolling over and cowering in the face of liberal media criticism. His example has flowed downstream to many rank-and-file Republicans. Now, they too stand up and fight back. Trump has showed them how. He’ll never be forgiven for it

    The Washington Post’s media critic echoes the C4 human inflatable, by calling this weekend for the media to stop being so “fair” to Trump, and start advocating for “truth.” The NYTimes ombudsman wrote a similar manifesto in 2016, and the Associated Press invented “advocacy journalism” in the late 1990s.

    Of course, Trump gets worse press now than any president since Nixon, and if I were a researching man in respect of trivial things, I think I could prove that Nixon was better treated (because people like the Post and NYT were exceedingly careful about maintaining a more neutral, fact-based posture).

    When the Red Brigades were running rampant in Italy in the 1970s (they murdered my sister’s best friend and college roommate, on the Autostrada, while trying to murder her husband, Renzo Rossellini, who was driving), there weren’t blanket checkpoints and lockdowns. I was playing my year of pro basketball then, and it was jarring to see the Carabinieri patroling the Rome airport with select-fire carbines, but I had total freedom of movement in Rome or the countryside where I lived.

    I’ve had a few run-ins lately with current issue young feminists. Details are not important, but my impression of them is very striking.

    First, Feynman:

    1. Talking to the StunningandBrave about their feminist creed (e.g., they know who Camille Paglia is, they just don’t have the attention span to actually read any of her work) strikes me as asking a fish if he knows water is wet. They are so steeped no in the talking points and rote outrage events that they have no idea that there is a world outside their water-world. This is completely true as well for the men they know, and if anything the men are even more brainwashed.

    2. Feynman describes this condition of happy ignorance, of not knowing what one doesn’t know, by describing death, and living stupidity, as equivalent conditions.

    Well, it got my attention, Feynman’s aphorism. I think I’d rather be dead than unaware of myself and my surroundings. Of course, C.S. Lewis informs us (“Great Divorce”) that we are already both dead and un-self-aware, which existentialism is rarely articulated by a devout, practicing Christian.

    “Just before you give up on a long-practiced routine, you freak out. It’s a final desperate attempt by the oldest parts of your brain to keep getting rewarded. As Matt Webb explains at Interconnected.org – if you use the same elevator every day to get to avoid climbing 10 flights of stairs, and one day you press the button and nothing happens, you don’t just immediately take the stairs. You start jamming all the buttons over and over again, you get mad, you ask around for help, you talk to other people, you go back and press the buttons again, and then, finally, you take the stairs.”

    Talking a child out of their natural sexual identity is perfectly fine and encouraged. But attempting to counsel a confused individual to revert a homosexual decision will be punishable with imprisonment.

    The after-action mathematical analysis, as once provided by John Snow on the London cholera epidemic of 1854, will probably (or should) change public health protocols, the next time some fucked-up country releases bio-weapons into the general population.

    My intuition is that the radically high R0 rates for the Wu will be discontinuous to anything previously observed. The density of social transmissions argues for an engineered lethality, if R0 rates of 4-6 (300% higher than any viral disease previously studied) are verified.

    Problem is, there are bureaucracies now that conflate politics, sunk cost in failed research, and personal career imperatives, with public health. So they are already telling us that quarantining infected persons is xenophobic and stigmatizing. There was no weapons-grade public health bureaucracy in 1855 when Snow published his game-changing analysis.

    But it’s taken. Will have to think about an alternative. CO2HOAX? CO2HAHA? CO2HERE?

    “CO24U”

    “MOREC02”

    “GASERTH”

    “INHLEME”

    Or just a bumper sticker: “My carbon footprint is a tire tread.”

    1. The guy (notice he rips off his mask and spits) knows he’s not being detained for treatment, but rather to throw him in a warehouse until he recovers by himself or is dead.

    2. Every video I’ve seen of Chinese cops is pathetic. Some of the women they arrest are stronger than the “SWATs”. No batons, no guns, just a bunch of little guys leaning back who swarm people.

    “Here’s the deal that I think is going down. I think Hillary and Bloomberg have gotten together and cooked up a scheme,” Dick Morris told John Catsimatidis on The Cats Roundtable radio show on Sunday.

    He said Bloomberg would stay in the race, even if he has no chance of winning, in an effort to get at least enough support to keep Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders from running away with the nomination.

    “Nobody will be nominated on the first ballot, and it’ll go to a second ballot,” Morris said of a brokered convention.

    “Officials said on Sunday that a third Italian had died from the virus as the infection count rose to 152, up from just three identified cases on Friday morning, raising fears that coronavirus is spreading at pace through Europe,” the Financial Times reported. “Authorities also closed schools and universities as they struggled to find the source of the outbreak. Large Italian companies, including the bank UniCredit, told employees in affected towns not to come to work.”

    “I don’t want the hamburger unless they make it medium rare — hot pink — ‘kay?”

    Be very, very careful about asking for that, BV.

    We serve burgers at whatever temperature the customer requests, but that’s only because we acid wash the meat prior to grinding in order to kill any bacteria present on the meat surface (acid wash – combination of white vinegar & water), then cure it with salt overnight. Most places I’m familiar with, even those where I know and trust the chef, either don’t bother with that process (it’s a fair bit of work – a two day job just to make burgers), or simply don’t know about it.

    YMMV.

    How Racist Are YOU?

    Do you hold EVERYONE to the same standards?

    Do you believe in meritocracy?

    Are you White? A Black Conservative? Are you a person of color who has an association with a Conservative (color irrelevant) belief or Libertarian viewpoint?

    Do you believe that nations have the right to control their immigration, and everyone should follow the same process for entry?

    This is the short quiz, but if you had one “yes”, you’re likely going to be labeled a racist.

    okay … so, do i need to be concerned about purchasing ground meat from a reputable meat market?

    i’m really trying not to freak out a bit here!

    i’m assuming cooking all the way through completely kills all the bad bacteria.

    found this link:

    do you ‘acid wash’ all meat/poultry/fish/whatever or just the beef?

    Short version answer – bacteria is usually only present on the surface of meat, and heat kills bacteria. So something like a steak can be cooked anywhere from rare to well done and be considered “safe”

    The issue with ground meat is that the grinding process combines the outer surface, where the bacteria live, with the inner sections, where no bacteria are present. So you potentially have bacteria all throughout, instead of just on the surface. And if you do not cook the ground meat to at least an internal temperature of 160 F (in other words, well done), then you may not kill all of the bacteria.

    So rule of thumb is cook ground meat to well done, unless you grind it yourself and take the appropriate precautions, like the acid wash I was babbling about. Or you know for a fact that it was prepared that way.
