After 15 Years, He Finally Cleaned The Place

Yes, a subtle layout overhaul. A light dusting. As is the way with such things, there may be one or two glitches to sort out, archived videos that need to be resized, etc. Do feel free to point them out. But overall, the blog should be more legible and responsive to a range of devices. Less squinting, I think.

Also, I now have a Twitter account. By all means follow me there. I mean, you wouldn’t want to miss anything, would you?

And because there’s always, but always, a catch…

It’s time to remind patrons that this rickety barge, on whose seating your arses rest, is kept afloat by the kindness of strangers. If you’d like to help it remain buoyant a while longer, and remain ad-free, there’s an orange button below with which to monetise any love. Debit and credit cards are accepted. For those wishing to express their love regularly, there’s a monthly subscription option top right. And if one-click haste is called for, my PayPal.Me page can be found here. Additionally, any Amazon UK shopping done via this linkor for Amazon US via this link, or via the buttons top right, results in a small fee for your host at no extra cost to you. 

For newcomers wishing to know more about what’s been going on here for the last decade and a half, in over 3,000 posts and 150,000 comments, the reheated series is a pretty good place to start - in particular, the end-of-year summaries, which convey the fullest flavour of what it is we do. A sort of blog concentrate. If you like what you find there… well, there’s lots more of that. If you can, do take a moment to poke through the discussion threads too. The posts are intended as starting points, not full stops, and the comments are where much of the good stuff is waiting to be found. And do please join in.

As always, thanks for the support, the comments, and the company. 

Consider this an open thread. Share ye links and bicker.

Clearly we need common sense hammer control.

Best to go after the driving force behind the hammer lobby. They've taken a real pounding in the polls. The manufacturers have also taken some hard knocks but they keep clawing their way back to favour.

These women who act like no one in history ever had to do any work...

The whining is embarrassing and no amount of disclaimers on comic mom's part of how much she loves her husband and kids and she's not talking about "all men" takes away from the kind of spoiled brattiness of the strip. I went and looked at several others trying to put my finger on what bothered me most.

And it's the unrelenting "me me me" of the piece. Let's face it, the differences between the sexes are older than history and been the fodder of comedic entertainment for centuries. But the best humor is 1) good natured 2) goes in both directions.

ccscientist

*ping*
Here is the thing that bothers me about whining wives: marriage especially with kids requires sacrifice. For thousands of years, men have worked themselves to death, literally, on the farm, hunting, in factories. In the era of sailing ships, sometimes the entire fleet from a village in portugal would sail off to fish...and never return. Still men have 98% of the workplace fatalities. For their part, women died too often in childbirth and worked heroically. Now, men have successfully created comfort and luxury, while still working longer hours at more arduous jobs (oh, I know, not every man) but women now are full of resentment and self-pity. They should try sewing all the family's clothes and tell us how hard they are working. That is the result of feminism's propaganda. Both partners need to try gratitude.

You noticed that too, huh? :-)
I have seen a good number of recent accounts of bail hearings where the defense attorney offered up that sort of "extenuating" hes-a-good-boy circumstance. There seems to be a common factor in all those cases of college-student/grad-turned-vicious-thug which we are supposed to not notice and especially not point out. Why, it's almost as if colleges will admit and graduate anyone who fits a certain demographic profile no matter what.

"Women seek closeness and vulnerability in a marriage where, under the veil of marriage, it is safe to be real and raw with our chosen one, or soul mate. When she reaches out for that connected feeling and is met with the “wrong” response, she lays a brick down."

And yet women seem to be much more likely than men to talk--and talk critically--to others about the most intimate details of their marriage. I cannot recall any men running down their wives to me, but I have heard some women run down their husbands.

"This is where the communication breakdown often occurs: women not saying what it is they want"

women and divorce. Someone had college students rate photos of the opposite sex. Guys rated the girls on a bell curve: most average, some hot, some ugly. Girls rated 75% of the guys as below average (which is impossible of course). Women are never satisfied. Over the past 50 yrs, surveys show US women getting more and more unhappy. Men's happiness (contentment really) has remained unchanged. Men make decisions (buy a car or house, pick a career) and are happy with that decision, because they weighed the options. Women always want a do-over. It is women who take stuff back to the store so much. The joke is that after marriage men hope she stays just like she is but women want him to change. Not a joke of course, but true.

The article mentions "men who have sex with men (MSM)" and later refers to "the MSM community".

I'm with Captain Nemo here on the Nautilus. I much preferred the current post right in the center of the page, sandwiched as it were.

I am on an iPad and can embiggen or resmallen as I desire, so font size is never a problem for me. But I do like to see all my options for movement around the blog without having to scroll up and down.

I also have a concern about doing too much to suddenly attract new readers. One doesn't want to have to deal with too much riff-raff all at once. Surely, we don't want your lovely place to turn into a dive bar. The current patrons are so gentile, by and large.

Nonetheless, pinged once again.

As for Mr. Big Guns Wannabe Cheerleader...this fits right into what I have noticed (as have Steve Sailer). The autogynephile segment of the trannies seems to have an overabundance of testosterone, and the men in this segment seem to really enjoy verbally and physically abusing women.

I think the latter trait (the abuse) is because these men know they are not, in fact, women--and this upsets their narcissistic focus on themselves and their sexual gratification. (That is, their sexual gratification depends totally on their deluding themselves that they are women.) Women really are women, and this pisses these jackasses off. And heaven forfend a women have the ...ahem, balls... to point out the obvious.

I have come to believe that women who dare to call out these men are putting themselves in danger. As seen by this jackwagon trying to choke a teenage girl.

Sometimes I dream of... well never mind. I shouldn't encourage my own violent side.

Inappropriate sharing of personal information in an attempt to create instant intimacy is something insecure, immature people do. "Best friends know everything about each other; we now know everything about each other; therefore we are now best friends."

One of my best friends of over twelve years is struggling with some issues with his kids. He's been dancing around the issue for six months. He'll get there when he's ready and he knows there will be a cold one when he is.

An underappreciated quality, ironically.

Tell me you have serious issues without telling me you have serious issues.

Let’s see. Gratuitous pronouns, mental health, and the assumption that “trauma” is ubiquitous, which suggests a casual emptying of the word. The subsequent disagreement and mockery are, inevitably, framed as “trolling” and “hate.” And so, I’d guess that “Christopher not Chris” is not in fact okay with what he claims to be “really truly ok with.”

A question for Darleen.

In the video I see an absolute shed load of flags, pennants, hell even windmills with the Stars and Stripes in the store.

This pleases me greatly. Is it representation of much of California away from the main urban areas?

Darleen

A question for Darleen

Yes, it does. The farming, ranching and otherwise non-urban areas of CA are not full of seething Wokeistanians. Suburban areas are a mixed bag. But the huge urban centers of Los Angeles, San Francisco Bay Area and much of San Diego dominate and rule the state and have become the face of CA.

The perps (from Los Angeles, Inglewood and Las Vegas) chose poorly in believing Norco "Horsetown USA" would be easy pickings. Norco isn't just a town dominated by working horse properties (& no apartment buildings) but one that is quite active with community events including it has a large outdoor event center that hosts a a rodeo.

My grandsons graduated Norco HS in 2021, one of them is now a Navy Corpsman currently training with Marines at Camp Pendleton. One of the 13 military members killed in Afghanistan during Creepy Joe's FUBAR bug-out was in the same JROTC program as the boys, just 2 years ahead and the town pulled out all stops to honor and support his family. They take the town's vets seriously.

pst314

The farming, ranching and otherwise non-urban areas of CA are not full of seething Wokeistanians.

Victor Davis Hanson has been talking about this in recent podcasts. The vast majority of the people in the area around his farm are Mexican immigrants and Mexican Americans. He reports that they are increasingly disgusted with the Democrat Party.

Yeah, I'm more concerned with the utility of the masthead to take me back to the landing page, especially now that the comments extend to multiple pages. It's also nice when I've opened a page in a new tab, closed the first tab, then decide I want to go back to the landing page. As I did yesterday then realized I'd have to start typing the URL again and rely on autofill to save me some time. First world problems, I know.

Except now I'm feeling crazy, and questioning if the masthead here took you back to the landing page at all. I haven't had much sleep the past few weeks, so if I'm wrong on that, feel free to mock me mercilessly.

LadyTheo

Darleen is absolutely right. She is in SoCal; I am in the northern part of the state (Placer County--east of Sacramento). I moved to a small town here after living in Oakland for five years.

I was born and raised in Indiana, although I am unusually peripatetic for a Hoosier (having lived in North Carolina, New York, and Nevada). The Bay Area was an endless ocean of "In this house, we believe" signs--with gunfire expostulations providing the ironic soundtrack to all the virtue signaling. (But oh, so beautiful. And great weather.)

I moved to Placer County because the rent was going up; ended up buying a house and paying less for a mortgage than I did in rent (far less). How comforting now to be surrounded by pickup trucks and Jeeps (I bought one myself), American flags, livestock, and people who smile and wave. I can leave my vehicle unlocked while I run into the store. The weather is not as nice--too many days over 90 deg F. But one adjusts.

ccscientist

The rural vs urban dichotomy I think has to do with the % of people who have jobs that contact reality. Conceptual jobs (advertising, education, law, social work, administration, entertainment, even retail) do not provide feedback that what you imagine is stupid or crazy. You can go way off the deep end and never get that key slap in the face from the real world--or your policies/ideas harm others that you don't see. For instance, the baby formula shortage and lack of monkeypox vaccine (in freezers in Europe) are both due to bureaucrats not accepting european inspection regs as adequate, with the consequences falling on others.

Daniel Ream

Fred the Fourth

ccscientist,
Years ago when I was doing US-based tech product development, I had to get things certified all over the world. Most of the non-US regulations were more stringent, or at least, more picky, than in US. One either dealt with TuV, for instance, or the US FCC regs + local "improvements" (VietNam, Sri Lanka).
In some cases I believed that the foreign regs were simply disguised heavy protectionism. Brazil was an outstanding example, which was validated to me when an internal memo at HP leaked.
Bottom line, though, is that I never ran into a case where it was easier to get approved to import something into a non-US location, than it was to get approved for US -> US, or EU -> US.
That's all a rather confused way of saying that IMHO the babyfood situation is a plain case of US protectionism.

I thought you made a change that I really liked but now I'm not sure that you made it but I think it's a good idea to consider. Instead of having a dozen or so original posts on your main page, just have one or two weeks' worth, maybe five posts or so. That way, even with "recent comments" and "blog roll" or whatever being a scroll down, it will only take just a swipe or two to get to them. I don't know how others peruse the blog but while I may go back a few days or a week, anything much further than that I generally use the search box for. Don't recall if Typepad gives you the power to configure that but seems it should.

One of my best friends of over twelve years is struggling with some issues with his kids. He’s been dancing around the issue for six months. He’ll get there when he’s ready and he knows there will be a cold one when he is.

Sometimes people want to talk about whatever horrible thing is happening to them, to vent or weep or whatever, and sometimes they just want a break from thinking about whatever the horrible thing is and would prefer an interlude of normal social interaction. A mental holiday, as it were. I suppose the ideal is to make it understood that either possibility is okay.

[ Rummages in archives. ]

Thanks to Michigan State University’s Amy Bonomi, we learned of the problematic nature of video conferencing – say, when a participant’s wedding photo - which is to say, evidence of a happy marriage - is visible in the background and therefore constitutes a “microaggression” against the touchily unwed. You see, resenting someone else’s wedding photo, and then publicly complaining about its presence in that same someone else’s home, is how one establishes one’s woke credentials.

But hey, wokeness is just about being polite, you know.

APL

For instance, the baby formula shortage and lack of monkeypox vaccine (in freezers in Europe) are both due to bureaucrats not accepting european inspection regs as adequate

Unfortunately, it works both ways. Europeans don't accept U.S. regs or standards as adequate either. This covers medical devices, automobiles, electronics, food labelling, and scores of other things. Ultimately it was/is designed to carve out the world into separate "consumer goods" trading blocks. In its time, Japan was a master at creating very country specific regs. - I seem to recall one for snow to prevent the importation of foreign skis.

So yes, bureaucrats. But not without the widespread support of politicians and industrialists.

Every six months or so, a ruthless sock purge seems necessary. Otherwise, the shapeless, threadbare things, the ones that belong on a fire, just get thrown in the laundry and then stuffed back in the drawer. Usually on top of the new ones, thereby hiding them, and then the cycle repeats.

But hey, wokeness is just about being polite, you know.

Curiously, given the stated importance of “sensitivity” and being mindful of what things might mean, we aren’t invited to ponder the kind of person who would resent someone else’s wedding photo. And then complain about it. Or whether such neurotic affectations, these unhappy mental habits, are something to be actively encouraged. In the name of progress.

Wedding photo: but resentment is the gas that powers the Woke engine. They want to eliminate the admiration for slim, fit people, pretty people, rich people, smart people. They want to dumb-down school and have eliminated valedictorians in lots of places (makes someone feel bad). Criticism of anyone for any reason is hate speech.
