Updating Epimenides

Epimenides,  stated that "All Cretans are  liars."   Epimenides himself, was a Cretan.  Is his statement true or false?  To update that statement, including attribution of causation, "All modern dhimocrapts are liars, but not all liars are modern dhimocrapts.  In plain and simple English (you know, that tongue of the privileged)  If you see a dhimocrapt and he opens his mouth and says something, that can be judged by it's origin to be a lie.   If, however, you hear a huckster trying to sell you something, that doesn't mean he/she/it is a dhimocrapt.

A modern Dhimocrapt Prayer for Intercession

Prayer for Intercession, 2016

Hail Hillary, full of it
Obama is with thee
Blessed art thou among women, LGBTs and other genders,
And blessed is the fruit of thy womb Chelsey
Holy Hillary, Mother of progressives,
pray for us sinners, Republicans and Conservatives,
Now and at the hour of our vote, and everyone else's' deaths.

Consider This

All the libruls and financial grifters are having coronaries about BRIXIT.  Maybe the British people remember that they were a once, very successful. nation, whose rulers were selected by themselves.  Now they are ruled by a foreign group of non-elected bureaucrats, ruling by ukase.  Their laws are not decided by elected legislators, but by those same non-elected bureaucrats.  At times, the Brits may seem a little slow, but they are not stupid.  They want their culture and country back!  Can anybody see any difference between their condition and status now and what it would have been if they had lost WW2?

Now consider the merits of TEXIT and OKIEXIT,  It seems that we, in flyover country, are being treated the same as the Brits by the EU.  No difference.  We are being gradually being edged into serfdome by our east and west coast betters.  Maybe it is time we took a hard look at this.

Banning Guns for Gorillas and Alligators

Lemme tell ya what's coming up.  Two or three weeks ago, a child fell into a gorilla pen and the keepers had to shoot the gorilla to protect the child.  Yesterday, an alligator snatched a two year old and ate 'em.  Do you know what the common thread is in this.  Guns!  We must have a new ban to keep them being sold to gorillas and alligators.  Of course. we should also ban them from zookeepers.  "Never let a good crisis go to waste!"  The motto of libruls and socialists.

Words mean different things to different people

A few years ago (OK many years ago)  McDonnell Douglas Aircraft company was celebrating the first flight of their new aircraft, the fabulous MD-11.  A bunch of movers and shakers were invited to witness the flight from an auditorium in (I think) the Engineering Center in Long Beach.  (Nobody could really witness it in-situ, unless they were in a chase plane.) They had all sorts of stuff live on the giant screen in the auditorium.  I happened to be there on other business, and they graciously invited an engineering ragamuffin like me to view the showing.  The MD-11 took off from a field East of Long Beach and proceeded out over the Pacific Ocean so as not to be over populated areas.

 The Computer room, filled with Cray computers was just across the hall from the entrance  to the auditorium.  Suddenly, the screen went blank.  No sound.  No image.  There were all sorts of rumblings in the auditorium.  The door to the Auditorium flew open and a young geek shouted into the room "We've crashed."  After a few heart attacks in the McDonnell family and management, he amended that statement to the computers have crashed and could not process the telemetry.

This is a posting in praise of a truly great company.  However, even the greatest company is at the mercy of it's lowest geek.

This posting was brought to mind because of a moronic commenter's statement on a popular blog asking why we should even carry black boxes on aircraft if we couldn't immediately retrieve them after a crash.  Someone see that the moron gets an invite to the Engineering Center where they recover and refurbish the  black (orange) boxes to be read.  Those engineers and techs are truly awesome in what they accomplish!

The Net Is Rigged Against Conservatives

Most of the middle-of-the-road or more conservative discussion sites have now switched over to facebook or other social media sites for commenting.  They will not let you contact them or complain.  They will not talk to you about how to ameliorate the situation.  Hot Air, Instapundit, and similar sites require you to use Facebook - you know the site controlled by Zuckerberg, the Facebook owner who censors conservative postings.  Facebook holds the position of a "common carrier" but they spend their time trying to control the political spectrum - in favor of  "progressives."

They say,  "all you have to do is join facebook," and you can post on their sites."   What's wrong with that?  Would you like to trust your personal data to a political operative and a site that is in the business of censoring people like you.  If you go to the sites mentioned, you can see they are much diminished.  They are filled with political shills and operatives, and other obvious morons.  Because of the posting limitations, their site comments go forward without any other views.  Most of the commenters that have supported these sites for the last dozen years are no longer posting, including me.  Thanks Ed and Glenn.  Good businessmen!

Site comments, in my humble opinion, should be a contract between the site owner and the commenter.  Why should an honest site demand the commenter go through a biased third party to make coments to the site?

If anybody is interested, here are a few interesting blogs that accept your comments directly:

Boaty Mc Boatface

The British elites are having a conniption about their science ship naming results  These so-called science-guys thought it would be great to have a naming contest for their new ocean science ship that the British people want named Boaty Mc Boatface.  According to the "Atlantic,"an extreme librul propaganda piece:

Alas, Science Minister Jo Johnson was not amused.  "The new royal research ship will be sailing into the  world's iciest waters to address global challenges that affect the lives o hundreds of millions of people, including global warming, the melting of polar ice and rising sea levels. ..."

This science minister thinks the people are stupid and mocking him.  He is right about the mocking, but not about the stupid.  This is NOT a social media prank, but a mass of intelligent people telling this librul puke that they are not going along with the extraction of money from their billfolds for a project based on lies, that is being politically used to provide sources of money and control for other world elites.  The people aren't stupid.  The science is NOT settled.  NO science is settled!  Globul warming is not science, it is a political control tool.  The people know that.

I think the British are being quite mannerly about this.  They are using ridicule to shame these grifters, and the grifters are too stupid to recognize it.  I also think that these bureaucrats and "scientists" should be intelligent enough to know that living in shame is still better than dieing the old fashioned British way of handling thieves and grifters, by the gibbet and headsman.
