EXCLUSIVE: IN LEAKED AUDIO, RICHARD SPENCER RAGES AT ‘KIKES’ AND ‘OCTOROONS’ AFTER CHARLOTTESVILLE PROTESTER’S DEATH ~ @ConceptualJames In other words, critical theory by definition makes no real attempt to understand the thing it wants to change, and it is driven by a moral vision applied by activists. The irrelevance of understanding the thing is key. Activism by dilettantes. ~ @yourholygaymom a white woman spawned out of nowhere today and started being homophobic to me so I stole her purse and now miss thing’s ID is resting in a target trashcan and her money is paying for my tacos and rent ~ @Chrathrard “White women spawning” is objectively a sexy trio of words. Just the thought of there being some dark, damp cave somewhere where all the Uggz-wearers lie together in an orgy pit, awaiting lecherous input is some next-level breeder fetish porn. ~ @chamblee54 .@natsecHeather .@dandrezner that’s a great way that a bipolar or unipolar power can behave and we can’t behave that way anymore ~ #WhatTriggersLiberals Knowing that not everyone thinks they are wonderful Knowing that they are closet racists, and people are starting to see through their woke performance art ~ 1879 – Leon Trotsky, 1918 – Billy Graham, 1943 – Joni Mitchell. ~ “you know what else you banned for damn you know you will see a band for for life what dead naming do you know a dead name what’s that if you call Caitlyn Jenner Bruce really and for life no she for life damn ridiculous this is what we’re living in this is this” ~ Why do people ask if you believe in G-d? You could say around G-d, through G-d, under G-d, or over G-d. ~ Every four years, a bunch of wealthy caucasians run for POTUS. Only one can get elected. There is much, much more to an election that being a wealthy white person. ~ Group That Mocks Diane Kelly’s PURR Cat Cafe Evicts TB Because Of Menopause Joke, And It’s Only OK When They Do It ~ i worry these days about this issue of what you’re allowed to say in that there is the certainty among a certain crowd that if you say certain things you can be brutally shouted down just pushed off into a corner push down the stairs with the recitation of it seems to be a collection of about 25 buzz words or buzz phrases and you don’t even have to defend yourself and I think to be charitable I think that a lot of these people think that their basic propositions are so obvious that they don’t need to be defended and therefore if you say certain things you are Hitler ~ the people who are using these buzzwords you know white supremacy etc almost always in my experience if they’re speaking that lingo the reasoning power is relatively low and yet in modern society educated people are trained to just roll over and pretend that that kind of stuff makes sense ~ @chamblee54 the people who are using these buzzwords you know white supremacy etc almost always in my experience if they’re speaking that lingo the reasoning power is relatively low @JohnHMcWhorter @GlennLoury This quote begins at 09:11 ~ @sarahjeong People keep asking for my opinion on cancel culture, and the only thing i have to say is that the Atlantic was nearly destroyed in 1869 by thousands of subscription cancellations over an article by Harriet Beecher Stowe insinuating that Lord Byron fucked his sister @chamblee54 is this satire? ~ pictures for this Armistice Day digital celebration are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Don’t believe everything you read. ~ “Two things I can’t stand, a man that ain’t true and one that mocks what is.” ~ @catturd2 For all you foolish Tulsi Gabbard fans … She just voted for the illegal impeachment coup. She’s just a better looking Nancy Pelosi. ~ @AnnCoulter No she didn’t. Tulsi is a SENATOR, meaning she’s in the SENATE and doesn’t vote on HOUSE resolutions. ~ I think this is the most extraordinary collection of talent, of human knowledge, that has ever been gathered together at the White House, with the possible exception of when Thomas Jefferson dined alone. ~ Several years ago, when we started doing audience surveys at @radioambulante, we discovered something interesting: 20% of our listeners were using our stories to learn Spanish. So we started asking ourselves what we could do to better serve them. / THREAD ↓ ~ @PithyJoe I heard the best explanation of how social commentary should be treated in art: the story is a car and the message is its passengers. If you want to get somewhere, it’s a lot easier to have the car carry the people than vice-versa. ~ I had a line in a poem that was not working. It started with “do coke in the bathroom”. It needed four more beats. The last one needed to rhyme with today. Here are the possibilities. do coke in bathroom the very next day, do coke in bathroom wearing lingerie, do coke in the bathroom instant replay, do coke in bathroom next to the highway, do coke in bathroom with the kkk ~ Sanders: U.S. Should Withhold Military Aid Unless Israel ‘Fundamentally Changes’ Relationship With Gaza ~ For years, I would look at the New Yorker in magazine racks. The have a list of cartoonists, in order of appearance, on the table of contents. I would see where the Addams cartoon was, and look ahead to see it. After a while, I no longer saw Mr.Addams in the list. It wasn’t until 1991 that I learned that he had died in 1988. ~ One night, the opening act for the second show started with a cheap transistor radio playing on an empty stage. Soon, the crowd became quiet to listen to it. The announcer said this act was the new force of rock in Atlanta. Someone walked on stage, and dropped a large rock on top of the transistor radio. ~ I’m the Woman From A-ha’s “Take on Me” Video, and Life with a Comic Book Character Has Been No Fairy Tale ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

They must, with Europe and others, watch over….the captured ISIS fighters and families.

The Braves lost 19 of their next 21 games, and almost blew their division lead. Is this a pattern? ~ @BlackWomenOWN “I hate when people talk about Black women being obese.

It is about James Broughton, Pauline Kael, and their daughter Gina James. I am planning to repeat this feature soon. I have recently gotten to see Big Joy. This will inform my updated feature.

A police detective friend once noted that many of their suspects are guilty, and one quick way to determine if they were guilty is that they just can’t shut up. The officer and suspect would be sitting at a desk while the officer was writing up a report, and the suspect would just continue continuously talking. At one point, Bob looked over at a particularly guilty suspect and stated: “You have the right to remain silent, and I would appreciate it if you took advantage of that right.” ~ @chamblee54 @billscher @mattklewis “likely we need a good Johnnie Cochran if the glove don’t fit you must acquit if something you must convict” if he grabs him by the dick, you must convict ~ @Vinncent A classic joke in literally dozens of languages: “Why has there never been a military coup in the United States?” “Because there is no US Embassy in the United States.” ~ Historic pictures, unlike history text, can be believed without question. Pictures today are from The Library of Congress.
This poem was read tuesday night at the red light cafe:
in the happy house when your soul is true ~ comforting body of water to see
boo depends on painting the heart so blue ~ whispering cloudy secrets to tell you
go mingle my soul and soak me up free ~ in the happy house when your soul is true
you’re in the right church but the wrong pew ~ go seek the dancer but not the pasty
boo depends on painting the heart so blue ~ each drop of his blood cries out for the brew
leave behind the sour and bitter tea ~ in the happy house when your soul is true
escape your dark highway for barbeque ~ celebrate eating honey from the bee
boo depends on painting the heart so blue ~ let the beauty we love be what we do
drain your desire till the cup carries me ~ in the happy house when your soul is true
boo depends on painting the heart so blue
This poem was read sunday night in Decatur:
orthopedic irony under birds ~ person attempting to find a moral
cold blooded nembutal slaughter of words ~ unprotected youth getting off on oral
holy man show of originality ~ thoughtful unblessed presbyterian
rising from affluence to poverty ~ loyalty to petrified opinions
your life is too short to be unhappy ~ let go of what you won’t kiss gently
cry when you take a sad chance badly ~ smile happy while you listen intently
let go of what you won’t kiss gently ~ apologize when you mumble something
laugh when you go dancing at nothing ~ smile happy while you listen intently
apologize when you mumble something ~ cry when you take a sad chance badly
laugh when you go dancing at nothing ~ your life is too short to be unhappy ~ selah

@MattWalshBlog Telling children that our species is headed for imminent extinction is psychological abuse. Climate alarmists are child abusers. They aren’t just wrong and stupid — though they are those things — they’re also morally depraved. ~ The Lady of Us: Remembering Anne Rivers Siddons There was a box on the sidewalk, in front of Book Nook. Someone took some books to sell, and the store did not buy them. One of the books was “Downtown” by Anne Rivers Siddons. It was about Atlanta, the magazine and the city. It was set in the sixties. It was a wonderful book. ~ Twitter just taught me demonym, “A noun used to denote the natives or inhabitants of a particular country, state, city, etc.” Now pedophrasty. I need to stay off social media for a while. ~ “Brenda Demi girl says anyone who says that trans women aren’t women I curse with the cramps and diarrhea I’m having today … I replied at trans women do not PMS your diarrhea seems to be due to the fact that you’re foolish” ~ As would be true in the series, the star of the pilot was Willy Gilligan, the ship’s reed-thin first mate. Although extremely likeable and well-meaning, Gilligan was the classic bumbler, forever breaking things, causing other people to have accidents and generally getting under foot … The other crewman was the ship’s portly captain, named Jonas Grumby. Throughout the series Grumby would be referred to as the Skipper…. The passengers consisted of millionaire Thurston Howell III, his socialite wife Eunice Wentworth (“Lovey”) Howell, and three others: Ginger Grant, a “B” movie star; Dr. Roy Hinkley, better known as the Professor, a high school science teacher; and Bunny, the typical girl next door. Just before the series premiered, Bunny’s name was changed to Mary Ann Summers. These five characters had been carefully selected by Schwartz to create (along with Gilligan and the Skipper) a “social microcosm.” ~ @FullFrontalSamB Genuinely shocked the White House felt they needed to extort a foreign power to trip up Joe Biden when normally all you have to do is let him talk. ~ Be at war with your Vices, at Peace with your Neighbours, and let every New-Year find you a better Man. Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) Poor Richard’s Almanack (1755) ~ I have been getting promoted tweets that take a anti-Hezbollah hard line. They are from @ajcglobal, which is connected to an “American Jewish Committee.” They have a logo. The capital letters AJC are displayed against a dark blue background. It is very, very similar to the Atlanta Journal-Constituition logo. ~ @areltahry Elizabeth Warren V. Palestine: This is a thread on Elizabeth Warren’s major (but not comprehensive) history and current stance on Palestine, in 14-points. ~ The B.E.E. Podcast – 9/27/19 – Timewarp: 1978 – Emerson Dameron parks in Atlanta GA because he likes free parking. He gets out of the car. He does not mention what neighborhood he is in, which is a critical detail. He gets robbed. Mr. Dameron then calls the robber dumb. Does anyone else see the irony here? ~ Woman butchers her naked model sister, 17, before gouging out her eyes and hacking off her ears in a jealous frenzy ~ A jazz musician bought a dairy farm in Kentucky. Since it was Kentucky, they had blue grass there. The cows ate the blue grass, and mooed indigo. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ this birthday tribute to Rumi was read last night in Decatur:
church is the place where light enters earth ~ the fantasy house where your hammer nails
each drop of my blood cries out to your worth ~ one should never remember the details
leave behind all the sour and bitter ~ turn dirt in your heart to fabulous gold

I searched the wikiquotes page for Mohandas Gandhi. The search terms used were lose, find, service, others.

After Doe penned a searing 12-page letter to Turner that quickly went viral, critics suggested Dauber had been the author. Dauber flatly rejected that accusation, and dismissed the notion that she’s out for personal revenge as “so ridiculous it doesn’t even deserve a response.” ~ Stanford University law professor Michele Dauber is one of the leaders of the recall campaign. Dauber is a friend of the victim’s and was in the courtroom for Turner’s sentencing. She’s an outspoken on-campus activist who has helped push through more stringent sexual harassment and abuse reporting and investigation policies. Dauber also is an adept Democratic fundraiser who has organized a well-financed recall campaign with glossy mailers juxtaposing photos of Persky with President Trump and Turner’s booking mug shot. ~ and ask do you have a good working definition of racist it’s it’s a it’s a word that’s that’s often used and rarely defined okay I mean I’m not you know gonna give you a dictionary definition but I would say something like a person who has unreasoning contempt or disdain based on the race of another person a person who believes a set of things without factual foundation that are discrediting you know blacks are lazy Jews or greedy can’t be trusted things of this town okay so strong effective reaction against the group along with unfounded beliefs that support the the hostility the antagonism ~ mean it’s true that I mean like you I look on social media like Twitter and see things I consider egregious virtue signaling and they drive me nuts on the other hand what none of us is ever entirely non performative or I mean we always have a peer group in mind that we’re trying to impress right ~ Whenever Glenn talks about incarceration here, he seems to mention Stanford… they are currently in the news, with the (commercially motivated) re-emergence of Brock Turner. Some want to change the school to prison pipeline to a swimming pool to prison pipeline ~ > @existentialcoms A lot of people don’t seem to get this, but being nasty online 24/7 is “problematic”, regardless of how “correct” your opinion are. No one wants to live in the world you are creating. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

chamblee54 – Yesterday, there was a discussion here about the term Cross Keys. Here is what I found. In four years at Cross Keys High School, I never heard anyone say what it meant. ~ Mr. Bear – Nice nosing around c54. As with any good research, the answers spur a new set of questions. Like bringing up the subject of restaurant sit-ins and of why Herren’s survived a lot longer than Leb’s and the Pickrick. I’m old enough to remember the demonstrators who were outside my high school baccalaureate ceremony. And that the issues which were raised found remedy later that summer. A different time. Thanks. ~ chamblee54 – The buildings that housed Leb’s and Herren’s are still standing. Herren’s is now a theater. The Pickrick was bought by Georgia Tech, of course, used as a storage building, and demolished. I always thought it should be remembered in some way. When you tell a story, you should tell about the villains, as well as the heroes. I worked with this man once who claimed to have worked at the Pickrick. He said they had a parrot, which he taught to cuss. The night Lester was on the Dick Cavett show, Truman Capote was one of the other guests. Mr. Capote said, in his own inimitable manner, that he had eaten at the Pickrick. “All I’m going to say is that it was not finger lickin’ good.” ~ Mr. Bear – In my feeble bear brain, I seem to remember the cussing parrot story. It’s funny what gets remembered and what doesn’t. People who make it a point to know such stuff make a point of remembering the ax handles and his penchant for riding a bicycle backwards, but they forget his opening the governor’s office to all comers for “Little People’s Day” and for his efforts toward prison reform in Georgia. However odd he might have been, he was honest. I’ve got an ax-handle story from 1968 that is probably best lost to the mists of memory…… ~ chamblee54 – The time I went to “Little People’s Day” it was held at the Govenors Mansion. “The migration north continued to West Paces Ferry Road when the current Governor’s Mansion officially opened on January 1, 1968. Lester Maddox was the first governor to occupy the current Governor’s Mansion.” The previous GM was on The Prado in Ansley Park. “The large granite home sat impressively on three hilltop acres, but the scale of the house was not considered large enough for many state functions. The grandness of the house was also not enhanced … by the goats and cows that were kept on site during the terms of both Eugene Talmadge and Herman, his son and later governor.” ~ Archival Atlanta: Electric Street Dummies, the Great Stonehenge Explosion, Nerve Tonics, and Bovine Laws : Forgotten Facts and Well-Kept Secrets from Our City’s Past is a book about Atlanta history ~ I got into a conversation about Arlo Guthrie. I saw where a post had been recycled. This was the result. This is about the perfect country western song, Ed Muskie, and the first time I heard the word empathy ~ @franssuper How in the name of the universe could I respect any fascist, nazi or white supremacist? @chamblee54 See people as human beings instead of walking labels. ~ pictures for you today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
