On an odd Youtube chain today, found this favorite from long ago

I have a lot of problems with the term "Basket of deplorables"

A quantity of waste that toxic and large should be contained in a vessel other than a mere "basket".

Something very large, VERY tightly sealed, and immune to corrosion, bursting, etc...

A simple basket isn't going to do the job with this stuff.

We're going to need something made out of Votes, Vigilance, and Commitment.

We must consign these people and their ideologies the figurative dustbin of history they so richly deserve.


We must make that known to all with the utmost emphasis.

And we must guard against its resurgence, whatever it takes. This is IMPORTANT.

Freedom isn't free. Its benefits carry with them responsibilities.

That is something all too many have forgotten. To use a quote of a Libertarian favorite author, Robert A Heinlein, against themselves; "TANSTAAFL: There Ain't No Such Thing As a Free Lunch."

On November 9th, the work starts to get hard. We have to do it, to be sure it's done right.

I'm REALLY looking forward to Clinton / Trump debates

It should be 90+ minutes of absolutely gut-busting comedy.

Hillary calmly answering, and Trump jumping up and down, hooting and flinqing feces.

What kind of alcohol goes best with popcorn?

Thom Hartmann made the observation (to paraphrase) "Everything we know about Hillary we got from right-wing radio and Faux news."

She's breaking that up.

I'm really stoked about the future, but I KNOW we have to work for it.

In the immortal words of the great Nikolai Ivanovich Lobachevsky:

Just one small question:

What would the reaction be from the republicans be if a Democratic candidate had a foreign born spouse?

The terms Controller, Manchurian Candidate, spy, and questions of loyalty come to mind.

Also, Lose Their Shit, Screaming Freakout, ....

IOKIYAR, I guess.

The fourth word

Black Lives Matter is the phrase, but there is an implied fourth word.

And, depending on the bias of the listener, that word is different.

It the phrase (Only) Black Lives Matter
Or is it Black Lives Matter (Too) ?

The authoritarian / selfish mindset inserts the former.
While the co-operative / collaborative mindset inserts the latter.

The original intent was the implied (Too).
But the side that is afraid of "Them uppity Blacks" inserts the (Only).

A cry for help became a demand for "special treatment" with one simple change.

A plea becomes a demand

Fear is the key. Frightened people are easy to manipulate.
Don't give in to the forces that want you scared.

In the modern political climate,
Conservatism wants you petrified in fear, hiding behind a gun,
Liberalism wants you hopeful, working to make things better.

Where are you?

Why have I not seen this until now?


Is anyone besides me cheering wildly?

Palin -Bachmann 2016 !!!!!

It's a dirty job but someone has to do it.

Some one has to make Trump, Carson, Cruz, JEB?, Jindal, and the rest look sane.

Plus, I'm heavily invested in popcorn futures.

Starting to play with Arduinos. Recommendation needed for C language learning.

I'm a hardware guy. Long time electronic communication tech. Now I have some things that'd be fairly useful if a microcontroller was attached.

I've only had an overview course on C a long time ago, and now I need to learn how to make the Arduino do what I want.

I need guidance on where to start to get into the language. Book recommendations, whatever.

Camp cooking - Need a few suggestions

It's been a long time since I've ben able to dig out the dutch ovens and go wild. Have an opportunity to do a couple meals (supper). I need a few suggestions for a main dish and some sides.

I have charcoal and real dutch ovens (the cast iron kind with the legs). I also have a gas burner and a small gas barbecue. I'll have plenty of prep room and a couple of coolers for storage of cold items. We have 5 guys total on a project for work, and we're all just crazy enough to think this sort of stuff is fun.

We're also going to be about 8000 feet above sea level, and quite a long way from a grocery store. So getting everything prepared and ready before leaving is neccesary.

It's been so long since I've done this that I don't remember anything other than a cobbler and a cornbread, but that's only one night, maybe two if we have leftovers.
