I found one website with budget figures. I am not going to know exactly how they relate to the way state government works. Ellen I don’t know what your SOS stats have to do with election results.

Audio Distraction

Posted in GSU photo archive, Undogegorized by chamblee54 on July 21, 2017

@AmadeusAlmighty “Deuteronomy 22:28-29 Leviticus 25:44-46 2 Kings 2:23-25 Genesis 7. Try reading the WHOLE bible before proselytizing about it.” Most arguments about the bible are boring. This one was distinguished by an alliterative twitter handle. PG found himself going down the rabbit hole, and looking up the four passages listed.

Genesis 7 is the story of Noah’s Ark. The thought of what that boat smelled like is enough to make a non-believer gasp for breath. The other three are typical of what might be called the perverted word of g-d, or PWOG. While they don’t have much uplifting value, they can be combined into a poem. A little editing, a few visits to rhyme zone, sacrifice a few brain cells, and, voila, you have a poem.

The poem will be set in 35 point comic sans. The innards will be 0-96-0 green, while the outer layer is 192-192-192 gray. The background pictures will be crowd shots from the Inman Park Festival, taken April 29, 2017. PG was beginning to think those pictures were useless. …

The Mozart of Mathematics is the first background audio distraction for this poem. It is the story of Paul Erdős. He was a Hungarian math genius, who wandered the world solving problems. After a visit to Notre Dame University, he noted the number of plus signs on the campus.

George HW Bush narrowly escaped comrades’ fate of being killed and eaten by Japanese captors. After the story of Paul Erdős, Futility Closet had another story. It seems that Mr. Bush was shot down in the Pacific, and rescued by Americans. Several others on his mission were captured.

“The next day a Japanese officer, Major Sueo Matoba, decided to include American flesh in a sake-fuelled feast he laid on for officers including the commander-in-chief on the island, Gen Yoshio Tachibana. Both men were later tried and executed for war crimes. A Japanese medical orderly who helped the surgeon prepare the ingredients said: “Dr Teraki cut open the chest and took out the liver. I removed a piece of flesh from the flyer’s thigh, weighing about six pounds and measuring four inches wide, about a foot long.

Another crewman, Floyd Hall, met a similar fate. Adml Kinizo Mori, the senior naval officer on Chichi Jima, told the court that Major Matoba brought “a delicacy” to a party at his quarters – a specially prepared dish of Floyd Hall’s liver. “I had it pierced with bamboo sticks and cooked with soy sauce.” They ate it in “very small pieces”, believing it “good medicine for the stomach.”…

David Remnick was the guest on WTF this week. It was a good chat. By turns it was funny, nostalgic, insightful, and full of terror for the America of Donald Trump. Impeachment will not be an easy fix. The Democrats have nobody to replace him. While many people knew about the crookedness, and cheapskate vulgarity, of DJT, the Democrats chose to scream racism. This just might have alienated the 70k voters in PAMIWI that tipped the electoral college. …

Here is the poem, Man Finds A Damsel. The first few words are a handy default title.
man finds a damsel that is a virgin, lie with her they be found upriver
man that lay with her excursion, give her father fifty shekels of silver
she shall be his wife he hath humble fat, thy bondmen thy bondmaids thy children
shall ye buy their families they begat, shall be your possession you gentlemen
ye shall take them as an inheritance, shall not rule over another with sword
mocked go up thou bald head arrogance, he cursed them in the name of the lord …

The Glenn Show was the next audio distraction. This is a show, featuring @JohnHMcWhorter and @GlennLoury. This show got bogged down in the ongoing debate about race and IQ testing … a subject that bores PG. It wasn’t until 49 minutes had passed before PG felt the need to make a selection. (BHTV has recently gone to a youtube viewer, and has a different method for making clips. The clips are, thankfully, no longer called dingle links.)

At 49:25, Dr. McWhorter said, referring to the election of DJT, “to an extent, it happened because people are tired of being called racist.” This is common sense to PG, and yet, almost nobody is saying this out loud. The Demoze/SJW attitude is one of self righteousness at screaming racist. To many, racism is a metaphysical evil, and when DJT was labelled racist, it was the moral duty of the electorate to vote for Hitlery. There was a twitter comment to this effect: @chamblee54 *racism shaming* is a terrible campaign tactic It is good to hear @JohnHMcWhorter (say) what i have thought.

Dr. Loury proceeded to state that throwing an elected president out, because we think he is an icky person, is a bad idea. The system was created to elect someone, and allow them to serve. Dr. McWhorter disagrees, and thinks that DJT is sooo icky that extraordinary measures are called for. Someone gave a performance of Godwin’s law. He said that the situation in Washington is not as bad as what the German Generals faced when they decided to off Hitler. Dr. Loury talked about the movie “Triumph of the Will,” and make the remarkable admission that he did not know that Leni Riefenstahl was a woman. One more tweet was required, this one including a colorized screen shot of the players. @chamblee54 @JohnHMcWhorter @GlennLoury this reminds me of outrage over jury decisions when justice is not a popularity contest here it is election. …

@HypertrophicLit Dear submitters, Please don’t address subs “Dear sir.” It’s not hard to find out that both our editors who read subs are women. Thank you. H ~ @chamblee54 A gender neutral replacement for sir and ma’am is needed.

When PG was writing this reply, he realized that he did not know how to spell ma’am, despite having said it thousands of times. Google contributes this: “Ma’am is another written form for Madam, which is used to politely or respectfully address a woman. This form of the word can be seen in classical literature including Charles Dickens’ books. Mam is a totally distorted and incorrect form for this word used especially within Indian subcontinent.”

What is the difference between calling someone “Mam” and “Ma’am”? There is a forum topic about the mam/ma’am debate. The bottom line seems to be that it is an informal expression, and that both spellings are correct. PG senses that ma’am looks more correct, and that this is the better written version of this oral expression. …

It is not certain whether an established government would have said this. There is a sentence not included in this meme… “Therefore the people alone have an incontestible, unalienable, and indefeasible right to institute government; and to reform, alter, or totally change the same, when their protection, safety, prosperity and happiness require it.” I imagine Mr. Adams would have taken a dim view of an attempt to “totally change the same” while he was President. ~ pictures for this gratuitous waste of the reader’s time are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

At no time, when I was in your presence last night, did it occur to me to mention this discussion. Until I found this comment thread, to make this comment, I could not remember what the discussion was about. ~ @realDonaldTrump Karen Handel’s opponent in #GA06 can’t even vote in the district he wants to represent….because he doesn’t even live there! He wants to raise taxes and kill healthcare. On Tuesday, #VoteKarenHandel. @chamblee54 Replying to @realDonaldTrump With all due respect, this #GA06 voter is not interested in your opinion ~ 1- Don’t tell me what body part to vote off. 2- Do you live in #GA06? If not, mind your own business. 3- If you live in #GA06, be sure to cast your secret ballot. ~ @realDonaldTrump Just out: The Obama Administration knew far in advance of November 8th about election meddling by Russia. Did nothing about it. WHY? @jamiedupree In this tweet, the President acknowledges that there was election interference by Russia in 2016 ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Man Was Hung In His Own Yard, Plus A Severed Head & Burned Torso Sends A Message After reading the linked article, and a couple of the related articles, I am not certain that this is racism. And I see a problem in hollering racism at inappropriate times. ~ drug test kits ~ The Double Standard of Diversity ~ diversity talk ~ Hours after officer Yanez is found not guilty in fatal shooting of Philando Castile, marchers close I-94 ~ 74 Seconds: The death of Philando Castile and the trial of Jeronimo Yanez Minnesota Public Radio has a series of Podcasts about the Jeronimo Yanez trial. If you want to move past the rhetoric, and find out a little bit about the trial, these podcasts are helpful. It should be noted that these podcasts cannot be downloaded, or paused. Go to the bathroom, and make sure your coffee mug is full, before you start to listen to an episode. ~ I quit reading when I saw this It’s simply false that the mere presence of a gun makes the encounter more dangerous for the police. ~ Philando Castile’s Killer Acquitted Despite Forensics That Contradicted His Case ~ cosplay drama ~ risk The last story on this podcast is “Praying for Time by Christopher Fox” It starts at roughly 39 minutes in. A young man takes a massive dose of drugs, in a suicide attempt. He is somehow saved. At one point, his father drives seven hours, one way, to spend fifteen minutes in the hospital room with him. It is a very powerful anti suicide story. The first story on this show is by Conyers resident T.S. Madison. She is always an experience. ~ Decoding the Georgia special election ~ Why The Georgia Special Election Matters ~ THE MORNING BEACON: BE PART OF THE CONVERSATION The Washington Free Beacon’s morning email lays out everything you need to know about the world of politics, foreign affairs, and national security right in your inbox. ~ “With a couple of days to give thoughtful consideration to the event, offended parade attendees flooded comment sections online, which is of course the perfect place to make your privilege most widely known.” Mr. King’s remarks reek of privilege. If you go to the comments here you will see a variety of concerns. ~ Bullies are sick people. You should not put well in front of bullies in a sentence. ~ this is the *top story* on my feed ~ Exactly who is NJNP, who is funding them, and what is their motive? Did progress with AIDS happen because of ACT UP, or in spite of them? ~ No I don’t think activism of the NJNP style is the answer. Mr. King had a snide, privileged take on the issue. The comments in the Blade were much more wide ranging. ~ I am not smart enough have a right answer. No police at Pride? Good luck with that. A large event like Pride requires police presence. Saying that these tactics work? Really? Maybe it will convince corporate sponsors to skip the event, which would be the end of large scale pride events. The list goes on and on. What Mr. King does not go into is the financial backing of NJNP. Some blade commenters think it is the NAACP. Their take is that this is more anti police than anything else. BTW, there were no arrests for NJNP. ~ it is important to make conservatives out of liberals with as little violence as possible ~ I just got a phone call encouraging me to vote for Karen HanDEL. It placed great emphasis on her reputed opposition to abortion. The opponent, liberal Jon OssIFF, is said to be a pro abortion extremist. Him, and his followers, support having no restrictions on abortions. ~ Facebook should find a new designation for social media contacts ~ Which meaning of common do you want to use?

The link above is about the start of this test. It is an interesting story. The concept of what is ethical, and what is not, changes over time. ~ Brown is a mixed color, and does not go well with the primary, and secondary, colors in the current rainbow flag. (Someone may be able to phrase that better) Putting a brown stripe next to a red stripe is ugly. A purple stripe could flow into a black stripe. That would not be as ugly as the Philadelphia proposal. This is aside from the philosophical issues here. Those can be debated forever. My feeling is that the current flag works very well, and does not need to be changed. ~ The Philadelphia Pride flag looks like it was designed by a committee. ~ While we are adding *lines* to the rainbow flag, we should have a white one, for powdered drugs. ~ POC groups together many people who have little in common. It is *problematic* ~ I just got a robo call. Pat Boone wants me to vote for somebody. ~ “That’s the term they want.” Maybe the ones you have heard from, but I don’t think anyone has done a survey of *they” My second point is hispanic people.This is either the largest contingent of POC, or a close second. Hispanic people are incredibly diverse. The one thing they have in common is the use of espanol. Am I to believe that this population of spanish speaking people has chosen a word in english to describe themselves? I find that very, very difficult to believe. ~ FYI the original version can be seen if you click Edited. If the deleted comment was still up I would click Like. ~ 1- That does not happen to me, but WordPress can be weird. I just logged on with Chrome, which does not have me signed into my WP account, and there was no problem. I don’t know the browser, or device, you are using, though. 2- I don’t know. The officer was on alert because of the robbery. When he passed Mr. Castile, they made eye contact, and Mr. Castile gave a “deer in the headlights” look. He was pulled over for a broken tail light. The officer smelled marijuana. How does that relate to the officer, (Mexican father, Hispanic Texas mother, born in USA) and his inter relations with an african american man? Like I say, I don’t know. My post was an attempt to get past the rhetoric, and look at the trial. IMO, the prosecution made some strategic mistakes. Since I was neither at the scene of the shooting, nor the trial, I cannot say whether the race of Mr. Castile had any bearing on his demise. ~ If Donnie is not adopted soon, he will be put to sleep. He is not housebroken, and needs his shots. Can you help rescue him? ~ I am so tired of this election outside $$ vulgar slogan “vote your ossoff” karen handel people outside district telling me what to do yuk ~ @joshgreenman If only someone had warned us about the character of Donald Trump. @chamblee54 Demoze were too busy screaming racist They forget that not everyone cares about that issue ~ @ProfessorKD_ A lot of this “rape culture” stuff is a slap in the face to actual rape victims. @kjb1968 Same with the Hitler, Nazi and racist accusations at people you disagree with politically. ~ 1-please don’t tell me what body part to vote off 2- what district do you vote in? If not #GA06 then this is not appropriate ~ A little sincerity is a dangerous thing, and a great deal of it is absolutely fatal. Oscar Wilde The Critic As Artist 1891 ~ You do not have to have an opinion on everything. ~ There was a heated discussion on Fox News this morning. “You asked me a question about what the President’s tweet was.” These are strange times. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah

Or the differently-abled stripe? Come the fuck on?!? It’s a rainbow. Let it be a rainbow. FYI: THE REASON WHY I WROTE, “WHERE’S THE WHITE STRIPe” — We need to ask this question if we are going to be so tokenistic and literal. It’s a rainbow. A rainbow by design represents everyone. But not literally. We don’t have green and orange people. I don’t need a stripe to represent my blackness. If I’m up there on that tacky flag so visibly, included but at the very same type pathetically separated, I demand that white people also have their white stripe.

Fighting On Twitter

Posted in Library of Congress, Religion, The English Language, Undogegorized by chamblee54 on May 17, 2017

There was a twitter battle last week. It was mildly ironic, and amusing to one of the participants. There may, or may not, be a message about Jesus here. If you want to skip over the text, and look at the pictures, you will be excused. The pictures are from The Library of Congress.

PG was on twitter, using his nom de tweet @chamblee54. PG found a tweet from @Phil_Johnson_ . Mr. Johnson is the founder, and copyright holder, of Pyromaniacs, a once popular blog . PG is banned from commenting at Pyromaniacs.

Did God Promise Health and Wealth? is the post linked to in the tweet. Mr. Johnson is a doctrine enthusiast. This post is an example. “I’d rather talk about the truth than concentrate on error. I love doctrine and instruction. … All of us need words of challenge and caution; not always words of blessing and benediction. The faithful preacher is obliged to “reprove, rebuke, and exhort””

PG is a recovering Baptist. He disagrees with most of what he hears of Christian doctrine. To PG, the best way to know Jesus is through the words, and deeds, of his believers. Sometimes Jesus gets dragged into personal quarrels. Believers find a way to work through this, and go on believing. To PG, this is one more reason to stay home on Sunday morning.

For some reason, PG looked at Did God Promise Health and Wealth? He saw some graphic mistakes. Here is a screen shot. The version at the site has been corrected. Of course, the internet never forgets, and here is a cached copy. Here is an ironic example of the graphic errors: “Every Christian has a duty to differentiate between truth and errorCto proclaim truth and refute error.”

@Phil_Johnson_ Did God promise health and wealth? link to post
@chamblee54 “Cand reproof and correction” “Cespecially when false teaching” “truth and errorCto proclaim” Did you proofread this?
@Phil_Johnson_ I didn’t post it. Someone else does that. Looks like the WP conversion changed my em-dashes to capital Cs. Should be fairly obvious.
@chamblee54 do you take responsibility for something published with your name?
@Phil_Johnson_ Not if I’m not the one who published it. Why? Do you think I deserve a fine or a public flogging?
@chamblee54 dude you are a professional You should not allow something like this to go out It makes you, and Jesus, look bad
@Phil_Johnson_ Jesus “looks bad“ to you because someone posted a sermon transcript with typos? I don’t think that’s the real reason you hate Him, Chamblee
@chamblee54 either you are responsible for what goes out under your name, and “in the name of” Jesus, or you are not who said I hate Jesus anyway?
@Phil_Johnson_ You did. Frequently. Here, for instance, you flatly disclaim the Jesus of Scripture:
@chamblee54 #ThingsJesusNeverSaid anything in the bible
@chamblee54 that is not “hate” I don’t believe that the bible is an accurate record of what Jesus said… my tweet is a slight exaggeration
@Phil_Johnson_ Jesus: “If you love me, you will keep my commandments” (John 14:15).
@chamblee54 some scholars say entire book of John is suspect … all you had to do was change web page with typo you must love to quarrel
@Phil_Johnson_ That’s not MY webpage. I don’t post my own sermons. I told you that. If you weren’t looking for a quarrel, why keep pressing the point?
@chamblee54 I am replying to you A web page, with the name of a church that employs you as executive director, would appear to be your responsibility
@Phil_Johnson_ As you know, appearances can be deceiving. Sorry. So what’s your verdict on my original question—fine, or public beating?
@chamblee54 Neither fine or beating are helpful opening tweet: Did God promise health and wealth? Maybe responsibility for grammar from pro editor
@Phil_Johnson_ PS: I am not employed by the church. I’m a lay person.
@Phil_Johnson_ PPS: And I may be an editor, but I’m not such a grammar Nazi that I would demand the keys to every website that botches my transcripts.
@chamblee54 Instead of beating/fine, why not delete the tweet, or suggest that people not retweet it… did anyone else notice this? does anyone read?
@Phil_Johnson_ You could always just listen to the sermon, so your eyes won’t be assaulted with a computer error every time my transcript used an em-dash.
@chamblee54some people don’t like having their doctrine criticized…subject of post… compare to your reaction to having the graphics criticized
@Phil_Johnson_ Criticize all you like. I said in my first reply that the punctuation is wrong. But (as I keep saying) ***I don’t operate that website.***
@chamblee54 you continue to recommend the content, even knowing about mistakes that have your name on them
@Phil_Johnson_ While I do appreciate your deep concern about my editorial credibility, there’s little I can do tonight to correct someone else’s webpage.
@chamblee54 if you do not object, I would like to write about this exchange on my blog… if you do object, then I will not do so
@Phil_Johnson_ Please feel free to write about it. Thanks for asking, but even if I object to your opinion, you have every right to express it.
@Phil_Johnson_ Turns out they fixed it for you: link to post

The tweet #ThingsJesusNeverSaid anything in the bible, deserves a comment. Is this evidence of hatred for Jesus? Does it “flatly disclaim the Jesus of Scripture”? Maybe Jesus is more than the result of translating Aramaic, to Greek, to Latin, to English. Maybe Jesus is a living spirit, seen in the words, and deeds, of those who will not quit talking about him.

When you hear Americans quote the Bible, they almost always use an English translation. This English document is said to be “The Word Of G-d.” When you consider that Jesus spoke Aramaic, not English, you realize that Jesus did not say any of the English sentences that he is given credit for. One of the few things PG believes is the G-d does not write books.

That is it. Two white guys exchanging tweets. Nobody was saved, or damned. Was PG in error by saying that Jesus looks bad as a result of this? Maybe. With all the mud on Jesus’s face these days, a few em-dash errors aren’t going to hurt. Should people tweet links to a post containing unsightly errors? Probably not. Do people like to quarrel on the internet, for the sake of quarreling? Is the topic of debate just an excuse for some good time twitterbashing? Anybody who cares can answer that.

Trust me, I know full well that Buddy had his “dark side.” Buddy’s derogatory comments about Country Music begin at 9:45. For the record: I DO NOT AGREE WITH WHAT HE SAYS, especially that “simple” in music equals bad or inferior and “complex” automatically means better.

The juncture of Lacanian dialectic and Badiouian inaesthetics in ontologically equivalent to de-reified Hegelian Geist. ~ Here is something you can do about net neutrality. 1. click on this link this link 2.

I just want Senator Graham to “break ranks” and vote against the AHCA ~ @NixonLibrary FUN FACT: President Nixon never fired the Director of the FBI #FBIDirector #notNixonian @chamblee54 J. Edgar Hoover died a month before Watergate break in. Hoover knew what Nixon was up to. Nixon knew what happened to JFK ~ I came to your blog after a google search led me to a 2012 post, “Did Nixon kill J. Edgar Hoover?” It makes what happened to Mr. Comey seem a bit less extreme.

We encourage commenters to help our moderators by flagging comments that threaten violence in any way, are spam, or use vulgarities including racist epithets or other obscene terms toward a specific group ~ @Blackedpoetry “as fuck” is my favorite unit of measurement ~ One of the things you do when editing is to eliminate widows. This is where you have a line, at the end of a paragraph, with one word, all sitting there looking lonesome. So the last line of the paragraph was: Keep the quantity up, and the quality takes care of itself. The last word was the widow. The last line was revised to read: Keep the quantity up, quality takes care of itself. ~ “The incompetent are often blessed with an inappropriate confidence.” Somehow, it makes sense for Huffington Post to publish that line. ~ I just got a phone call. The man was soliciting money “to give legal support to our sheriff and law enforcement.” I asked if the legal support was going to the Dekalb County Sheriff ~ @chrislhayes It’s done. Language is done. Words are finished. Meaning has vanished into an endless Möbius strip of self-negating nihilism. ~ PWSR People who say racist ~ this is an unfortunate incident at a new york college it is not a “teachable moment” for a white savior ~ and no doubt traffic they are installing sidewalks on johnson ferry now … i have always heard that the golf course is owned by the catholic church, and is very reluctant to give up any land for road projects… they gave a few feet for the peachtree expansion, and the land along johnson ferry is woods, so maybe that will go when the inevitable widening of johnson ferry takes place ~ 9 remaining of 10 Welcome!
