They Still Love Him Anyway. The gratuitous comment about the nfl at the end is getting a lot of attention. The rest of the story is being ignored, while people tut tut over that comment This attention to distraction is what Mr. Trump wants you to do. ~ COLD CASE: A transgender murder in rural Georgia baffles police ~ What Trump Voters Want Now ~ The Politico Goes On A Cletus Safari, Finds Two Angry NFL Fans Willing To Say What They Mean ~ Joni Mitchell 2014 Interview ~ The Truth About HIV and Being ‘Untransmittable’ ~ rand paul talks Mr. Paul made this statement before the misunderstanding with his neighbor.

Cheese ~ Ta-Nehisi Coates has an incredibly clear explanation for why white people shouldn’t use the n-word ~ Ta-Nehisi Coates on words that don’t belong to everyone Comments are disabled for this video. ~ N$$$$$ a brief history ~ N$$$$$ oed Used by people who are not black as a relatively neutral (or occasionally positive) term, with no specifically hostile intent. ~ please ~ @AncntPhilosophy Every man prefers belief to the exercise of judgment. Seneca ~ Who Is Seneca? Inside The Mind of The World’s Most Interesting Stoic ~ Such a Stoic The art critic Robert Hughes labelled Seneca “a hypocrite almost without equal in the ancient world,” ~ George Takei Accused of Sexually Assaulting Former Model in 1981 ~ The Playboy Interview with Ta-Nehisi Coates I’ve never had a white person call me a nigger. ~ Reince Priebus Makes Announcement That Signals He May Have Flipped For Mueller ~ Where did the N-word come from? ~ Watch Four Iconic Live Performances by Billie Holiday ~ 8 Baffled Foreigners Reveal The Weirdest American “Food” They’ve Seen ~ @realDonaldTrump Why would Kim Jong-un insult me by calling me “old,” when I would NEVER call him “short and fat?” Oh well, I try so hard to be his friend – and maybe someday that will happen! ~ @realDonaldTrump We had a wonderful visit to Vietnam, thank you President Tran Dai Quang! Heading to the #ASEANSummit 50th Anniv Gala in the Philippines now. ~ @HeerJeet GOP is heading for an all out civil war between the establishment, the Trumpists, the neo-cons, supply siders, the ephebophiles and the hebephiles. ~ Pedophiles, Hebephiles and Ephebophiles, Oh My: Erotic Age Orientation To tease apart these erotic age orientation differences, Blanchard and his colleagues studied 881 men (straight and gay) in his laboratory using phallometric testing (also known as penile plethysmography) while showing them visual images of differently aged nude models. Because this technique measures penile blood volume changes, it’s seen as being a fairly objective index of sexual arousal to what’s being shown on the screen—which, for those attracted to children and young adolescents, the participant might verbally deny being attracted to. In other words, the penis isn’t a very good liar. ~ If Anyone Says Anything Back, That Is an Outrage ~ Can My Children Be Friends With White People? ~ Edna St. Vincent Millay: Love is not all ~ mugshot ~ The incident in Texas was at a Baptist church service . If it had been Catholic, then it would have been a Mass killing. ~ the only way to know is to just keep typing nonsense into the little box and see when big sister tells me to quit the former box had digits in the corner to tell you when to quit typing and start editing to fit into the character limit but now you have to guess until you run out ~ @WernerTwertzog Meanwhile, #ChrisChristie, naked, hog-tied with duct tape, in a blacked-out Ford Econoline van parked near the George Washington bridge, wonders how it all came to this. Again. Using the van’s door hinge, the hogtied #ChrisChristie manages to start a rip in the duct tape. He frees himself. He can escape, through the woods. There will be houses. But it is November, and he is naked. Again. From the onramp of the George Washington Bridge, drivers see a large, pasty-white figure shambling through the tall grass and cattails, emerging on the other bank, slathered in mud. He vanishes into the pine trees. What was that, they wonder. Their governor, of course. ~ You still haven’t gotten back to me about that beach house in Colorado. It is a really good deal. ~ It would be great to know, for sure, that a person is undetectable. Right now, you have to take their word. People trying to get laid do not always tell the truth. ~ ~ KimKierkegaardashian‏ @KimKierkegaard We worked hard to make the house minimalist. But the very thing which was supposed to make room occupied so much space that God had no access ~ anagrams for toxic masculinity: MIX + LUCY + CITATIONS, SUN + CLAIM + TOXICITY, SIX + CLOUT + INTIMACY, MIX + COUSIN + TACITLY, SCUM + NAIL + TOXICITY, TAXI + MISTY + COUNCIL, UNIT + AXIOM + CYCLIST, UNIT + SIXTY + COMICAL, TINY + TOXIC + MUSICAL, CITY + LINUX + SOMATIC, INTO + SIXTY + CALCIUM, TINY + CLIMAX + COITUS, STOIC + UNITY + CLIMAX, TOXIC + UNITY + CLAIMS, TOXIC + MUSIC + LITANY ~ The art critic Robert Hughes labelled Seneca “a hypocrite almost without equal in the ancient world,” ~ TNC doesn’t use other people’s words, but then he makes outrageous statement: White people are taught that everything belongs to them. What a jerk. ~ Kellyanne Conway says anyone in public office who has mistreated women should “step aside” Does this include the person who does Sarah Sanders’s Hair? ~ @KT_So_It_Goes Boy. Making America great again involves a lot more conditional pedophilia acceptance than they tell you in the brochure @horowitz39 In my view Moore is guilty as accused. But 1) it happened 30 years ago, & 2) he can’t be removed from the ballot, & 3) electing a Dem strengthens a party that defends these criminals: Obama, the Clintons, Holder, Lynch, Abedin, Cheryl Mills etc. &their crimes are far far worse ~ Are Shaun King’s kids allowed to be friends with him? ~ pictures for this allegoric paregoric dialectical diversion from are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Posted in Library of Congress, Weekly Notes by chamblee54 on November 6, 2017

I make a note of links to things I want to read later. I also copy comments I want to make. Sometimes I make the comment, and sometimes I use discretion. On monday morning, I publish this document. Lately, I have been including the poem I read sunday night. Pictures today are from the GSU library. As usual, they have nothing to do with the text.Today’s text has 999 words. ~ Manfort indictment ~ Checking My Male Privilege ~ @phl43 You’ve got to be fucking kidding me, Mueller can’t even get his facts straight in indictment: Tymoshenko was never President, she was PM… ~ FAMOUS Enough Podcast Season 2; Ep. 1: We’re backkk (w/R.J. Owens) ~ What a Tantric Shaman Sees on a Porn Set – with Rak Razam TPP69 ~ Man says girlfriend’s mutilated body with missing organs is blow-up doll with human flesh ~ @Phil_Johnson_ On name-calling & insults: 1. They ought to be used sparingly (Col. 4:6). 2. They aren’t ALWAYS sinful (1 Ki. 18:27; Matt. 3:7; 23:13-33). Matthew 3:7But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? ~ @SlavojTweezek So if God were honest, you know, I am sure he would be an atheist. ~ The Inside Story Of Matt Taibbi’s Departure From First Look Media ~ atheism thread ~ Our silent Civil War: Debate over statues didn’t come out of thin air ~ Insectageddon ~ The Web began dying in 2014, here’s how ~ Here Are The 10 Weirdest Places You Can Possibly Go To In Georgia ~ Not quite 13 reasons why “fuck” is a really great word ~ Papa John’s Blames the NFL for Hurting Pizza Sales ~ Verdun ~ Sessions now says he was aware of Papadopoulos-Russia contacts — contradicting his sworn testimony: report ~ Argument over Bible, forgiveness leads to Georgia man being shot twice in head ~ I recently pubished a post. It was originally written in 2008. It featured a quote from your blog. Congratulations on being in business, nine years later. ~ The Laws of Simple Sentences ~ a history of polka dots ~ Yemen’s Houthis fire missile at Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh ~ conversations with burroughs page 4 ~ Why I’ve Started to Fear My Fellow Social Justice Activists ~ Devin Kelly ~ They aren’t ALWAYS sinful (1 Ki. 18:27; Matt. 3:7; 23:13-33). ~ OOPS! This page exists to tell you that this page doesn’t exist. ~ Instead of “What would Jesus do?” maybe the question should be “What did Jesus do?” ~ stupid anagrams as pi stud ~ if pigs could fly who would clean up after them? ~ 3:7But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? ~ Patch welcomes contributions and comments from our users.

Users who flagrantly violate our standards can be banned at the moderator’s discretion. ~ Diana Y‏ @DianaFL2NC Eyes rolled too far #My4WordCauseOfDeath ~ Adoption is almost the same word as abortion. The mirror image of b is d. P is pronounced like r in Russian. ~ Luther Mckinnon Was Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton the best the Democrats could do? They deserve to lose Chiqieata Banenea With that same reasoning the republicans put the worsted of the worst did they deserve to win? I think the real looser are the American people specially the ones that will die do to lack of health care. The children that are going hungry in schools, and the hundreds of people who will go homeless do to the new tax laws that are moving through Congress. But no worries they deserve it! Luther Mckinnon Ultimately, the American people, and the rest of the world, loses. My comment was about the ongoing battle, Hillary vs BS vs the american people. The fact that the Repubs offered us whatshisname sucks as well. Chiqieata Banenea the people voted and Hillary won by 3million votes. Bernie is not a democrat and only join the party to gain a platform. He had good points but was tunnel vision and in the primaries the Dems votes him out. He lost! So why do people keep bringing him up? Not a winner Not a democrat! Luther Mckinnon Another problem is the electoral college. We needed to get rid of the EC after the 2000 election. When you live in a red state like Georgia, you do not have a vote. HRC may have won the popular vote, but that is not what decides the election. FWIW, I think DJT would have beaten BS. Also, if the election had been decided by popular vote, the parties would have used different strategies. DJT might have won the popular vote under those circumstances. The “Wednesday morning political consultants” will be discussing this race for a long time. I wonder if 2020 will be even more fucked up? Chiqieata Banenea Agree. I just hope that we can take 2018 and get better representation and get the waist out of Congress and the Senate. 2020 is going to be a whole new animal. Some how Dems and independents are going to have to come to agreement. ~ The Forgotten Hillary Clinton Voter: A Profile Of The Not-So-Silent Majority @chamblee54 When they called my neighbor racist, they called me racist Insulting voters is one way to lose the electoral college @EdDarrell What Clinton said was many Trump supporters are racists and other deplorables. If you self-identify in that group, repent. @chamblee54 What Clinton said and what people heard are two different things The definition of racist changes every day It probably includes you by now @EdDarrell When people said they were happy to be called racists with Trump, they rather outed themselves, don’t you think? @chamblee54 that is not who I am thinking about I am thinking about the undecideds who voted against Clinton i think insulting them was a bad idea @EdDarrell I think we owe it to our nation to hear accurately what candidates say, and not hold them accountable for our mishearing. @EdDarrell I think those who falsely claimed Clinton insulted non-racists should be ashamed. @LetThemEatGMOs dear lord ~ @DanFriedman81 I am about halfway convinced that social justice Twitter and campus activism are being run by pro-Trump Russian spies. ~ i tried to like this, but got a message: Twitter is over capacity.

Glenn Loury says TNC is a good writer, but not a deep thinker. John McWhorter says that the praise heaped on TNC is “soft bigotry of low expectations”. McWhorter says that TNC is not that great, but liberal white people seem to think it is their duty to praise him. This summary does not do the conversation justice.

self medication for the mallardy ~ get a quack fix from heron dealer nick
a general keeps his army up his sleevey ~ whats red smells like blue paint red paint kiss
to hurt lady gaga poker face jubilee ~ goodbye boiling water you will be mist
a dyslexic duck walks into a bra ~ gets hammered skips out on his bill
i don’t know the tune but i’ll wing it raw ~ its donald duck not donald trump chill
watermelons marry they cant elope ~ didn’t like my beard but it grew on me
are the frogs all high they are smoking croak ~ what kind of bee makes milk? a boo bee

pictures are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

I don’t have to do anything to earn that idiot’s respect. Just because he used to play quarterback, does not mean that I have to earn his respect. For that matter, I am not interested in his opinions about the flag, the national anthem, police brutality, or anything else. He is just a former professional entertainer. His opinions mean nothing to me. ~ If something is not racist, or you expand the definition of racism to include it, that is not being objective, that is being an idiot ~ Not once have I thought, “You know, I wonder what Colin Kaepernick thinks about this.” ~ Did anyone talk about Dylan Roof’s religion? BTW, both Mr. Roof and Mr. Samson were arrested alive. ~ the re-election tradition of the “my turn” candidate for the opposition ~ Jon Ossoff attacked Karen Handel for her auto allowance, and her traveling, while she served as Secretary of State. “The luxurious life of Karen Handel” turns out to be mild, compared to what Tom Price is doing. ~ The juror was drunk when he made the statement.

Are you familiar with implicit bias research? ~ @chamblee54 i have taken an online version of the implicit bias test i don’t think it tells you anything i also follow police shootings ~ @salanfann And police reports are a paragon of veracity. Too many officers are closet racists or exercising their status with a rage addiction. ~ @chamblee54 the reports i read are from news outlets i believe media reports, on many cases, over twitter/fb, on selected cases ~ @salanfann @APNews was the source of the article “Half of blacks say police have treated them unfairly” Implicit bias study’s sponsored by Harvard, and ½ or more Media Outlets routinely comb AP for “news.” If you give implicit bias no credence, kindly seek professional help for your denial. ~ @chamblee54 go fuck yourself I have read about implicit bias – it is possible the tone of this message is bullshit most ois are justified ~ @salanfann It’s not enough to read about it, if 1 wishes to be aware of implicit bias’ impact.

You said: “You do not have some human right, some abstract thing given to you by God or something like that.” ~ 4/Actually, that’s exactly what America declares we do have: People are the image-bearers of God, created with dignity& inalienable rights. ~ 5/Sadly, you don’t understand human dignity. A person’s skin, ancestry, and bank balance have nothing to do with their intrinsic value. ~ 6/ This declaration of universal dignity is what America is about. Madison called our Constitution “the greatest reflection on human nature” ~ 7/ You talk about culture but don’t know squat about western heritage–which sees people not as tribes but as individuals of limitless worth ~ 8/ The celebration of universal dignity IS our culture, & it rejects your “white culture” crybaby politics. It rejects all identity politics ~ 9/ Sometime after moving back into your parents’ basement, you knock-off Nazis fell in love with reheated 20th century will-to-power garbage ~ 10/ Your “ideas” aren’t just hateful, un-American poison–they’re also just so dang boring.

Regardless, praising Trump is definitely NOT an act of decency or intelligence. @gyesekissi No, it’s an act of stupidity, and we already have millions of people who worship him. @johnclavis I would criticize someone who said two plus two equals five, whether they were the most or the least popular person on earth. So should you. @IbrahimSapien__ That’s just stupid. By that rationale, being in a red state and praising Osama Bin Laden is downright heroic. @magguu_ i agree. i admire trumpanzees who are willing to let the world know what shitty people they are. takes a certain courage. ~ I looked at the other thread, and I noticed something. The Man you refer to describes himself as a “foreigner.” In other words he is not the descendant of African slaves, which is what most people think of when they think of a black person. A dark skinned person, from another country, is different from a dark skinned person born in the USA. It should not surprise you that this man will have a different attitude about Mr. Trump. ~ The Democrats made a cynical decision to use race as a campaign issue. ~ pictures are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

As soon as you pass someone, slow down. Wave to people who have the same model car as you. Wait for everyone at the table to eat before you can eat. Face forward in an elevator. Speed up with a yellow light. Don’t go directly for the condom aisle. Double bag menstrual supplies. Menstrual tools are double bagged at the store because…why? Always sit at the same desk or table even when they’re not assigned. Bikinis are okay… but a bra and panties are a no-no. Work 9-5 if you want to have a normal schedule. Women can carry bags, but men shouldn’t. Wear different clothes every single day.

This is being compared to the people who fought with the protesters in Charlottesville. The soldiers were wading onto a beach while being killed by machine guns. The anti-protesters were throwing feces at overweight idiots. Please stop making this comparison. It is an insult to our fighting men, and, frankly, an insult to the Germans they were fighting. ~ Hmm I have heard LOTS of opinions this week about C-ville. I may skip over this, to get to the stories…. The old saying is that opinions are like assholes, every body has got one. Kevin, we all know how much you like butts.

I feel that many things you said were true, but not especially relevant to the incident. However, what I did not hear was anything I had not heard before. ~ People are encouraged to speak up. It is said that if you are silent, you are encouraging the bad guys. I disagree. If you feel that you must add to the noise, without bringing understanding, that you are contributing to the alienation. There is an old saying… if you can’t say anything good, don’t say anything at all. … There is a lot of rhetoric going around. You are certainly entitled to your opinion, and there are some who will benefit from listening. However, I am not one of them. … There is another old saying… opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. We know how much Kevin Allison likes butts. I hope you are not as fond of your political opinions as you are that body part. It is much more entertaining, and causes less emotional turmoil, to hear you talk about butts. ~ @dadtellsjokes I’m thinking about getting a new haircut… I’m going to mullet over. ~ “richard spencer started this whole thing and caused three people to die.” James Fields is probably a loose cannon. While Mr. Spencer is a yukky person, and it is convenient to blame him, is the action by Mr. Fields really the fault of Mr. Spencer?

Hopefully, we won’t get to make that comparison. ~ On a related note, whatever rude things you say about the Germans in WW2, they were a tough army. It is preposterous to call these alt-right clowns nazis. And very few people make that distinction. And to take antifa throwing urine at the alt-right, and say that is the same thing as the D-Day landing, is an insult to the men who fought there, on both sides. ~ @dadtellsjokes Did you hear about the Italian chef who died? He pasta way ~ @datassque yall tired of boiling water every time you make pasta? boil a few gallons at the beginning of the week and freeze it for later. ~ That is a bad comparison. The soldiers in that picture were greeted with machine guns, and suffered heavy casualties. Antifa was greeted with clubs and angry talk. That meme is an insult to the fighting men, on both sides, of that landing. ~ pictures for this waste of time and bandwidth are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”. ~ selah

Many people will try to drag you into quarrels that you do not need to be in. ~ a lot of people either did not vote, or voted for a fringe candidate, because their state was obviously going to go either blue or red. where things got weird is where states that were assumed to be safe for hillary, like PA and MI, went for trump. in states like GA, it was painfully obvious that DJT was going to win big ~ For some reason, FB has chosen this as the *top story* on my timeline.

He knows a few things about the military. Here is a twitter thread. 1. Trump says we are “Locked and Loaded”? We haven’t even made basic preparations for war fighting that will happen if our B1s & SSBNs fire. 2. NK could launch massive snap attacks within minutes of an attack. Pacific command logistics, amphibious ships & Marines NOT at ready. 3. National ammunition logistics train NOT READY. Army/Marine alerts NOT READY. USAF air bridge NOT READY. Medical mobilization NOT READY. 4. We are NOT READY for even a small action size of Libya much less Korean War 2.0. This talk of Locked & Loaded is irresponsible madness. 5. Every command in world will have to deploy all assets to Asia. It will take months and by then NK could hold peninsula or nuke Guam/Tokyo 6. Trump’s rethoric is out of control. Mattis, McMaster & Kelly need to brake or bet there will be no NK HE, Chem, Bio or nuke response. ~ If you live in the state of Georgia, you voted for Donald Trump. ~ Account suspended This account has been suspended.

Why did they have to get all of this media attention? Why was a counter protest needed? ~ Why did the media… both corporate and social … give so much free publicity to the tiki torch boys? Maybe the auto incident would not have happened if the situation had not been so inflamed by publicity. ~ You and I know the same Chad. I have a different opinion. ~ The alternate title was “Don’t Give HBO’s ‘Confederate’ more publicity. ~ a black website posted a piece saying they were not afraid of a nuclear war… now they are having a hissy fit because of tiki torches ~ Tom Watson was an unsavory character. However, there was a certain ironic value to having his statue on the west side of the capitol. This was the side where the rallies were held. It was always fun to have this huge green man shaking his fist at the crowd below. The fact that the statue was of Tom Watson, a really terrible person, gave this a certain morbid fascination. ~ pictures today are from “The Special Collections and Archives, Georgia State University Library”. ~ selah
