How Obama’s media strategy unraveled with recovered POW
By John Podhoretz
June 7, 2014 | 11:41am

*** begin quote ***

The bottom line is that the president settled on a controversial, high- risk strategy here in a difficult and problematic manner — and then sought to use his mastery of pop culture to change the story to a more palatable one. But some stories just can’t be gussied up.

More important for the president’s future fortunes is this lesson: You can only spin for so long before you start spinning yourself. Spin and spin and spin and soon you have a whirlwind to reap.

*** end quote ***

1. We negotiated with terrorists putting Americans further at risk.

2. We released dangerous men back into the wild.

3. Why do we have Gitmo? Shouldn’t we be killing those that attack up?

4. This President is inept at best.

Donald Sterling Agrees to Sell L.A. Clippers, Drop Lawsuit

Donald Sterling, the L.A. Clipper’s embattled owner, has agreed to sell the basketball team to former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer and is dropping a lawsuit against the NBA, his lawyer said.

Mr. Sterling initially vowed to fight a deal struck last week by his wife, Shelly Sterling, to sell the team to Mr. Ballmer for $2 billion. The NBA in April set out to force him from the league after racist comments he made became public in a recording.

The league’s board of governors must approve any sale.

HOSPITAL PATIENT SMOKES IN BED, STARTS FIRE, DIES

 
UPI 11/9/2013 6:51:02 AM

BALTIMORE, Nov. 9 (UPI) – 
A hospital patient in Baltimore died Friday after starting a fire while smoking in bed, fire officials said.

 

* * * * *

 

For thise who have read my biography of Frau Reinke, I tell the story of how she was put in an overflow ward at Saint Peter hospital and some bozo was smoking. When the staff did not ever care to fix the situation, I call the Fire Depoartment. That crusty old New Brunsiwck Fire Cheif certainly cared!

 

When I read this story, I gave myself a patt on the back. It was many years ago. I forget the date. And, whle Frau Reinke was majorly POed at me, I never felt bad. 

 

Now I feel proud of that decision!

 

Laff! I bet wherever she is she is still POed about it.

INSPIRATIONAL: “Be Present” is like “Be in the moment” or “Mindfulness”

Friday, October 11, 2013

http://www.marksdailyapple.com/the-10-habits-of-highly-successful-hunter-gatherers/#axzz2glGmraDk

The 10 Habits of Highly Successful Hunter-Gatherers

*** begin quote ***

Habit #4: Be Present

We can all do a self-inventory now of the attention we give our phones or other technological devices. We can confess to ourselves how much we let residual work infiltrate our personal lives. Don’t forget what I think is one of our biggest trip-ups in modern living: the penchant for mental chatter. Truth be told, how much time do we spend caught up in replaying a conversation from the previous evening, imagining multiple stressful scenarios that might take place when we confront a certain person about x, y, and z, worrying about what other people think of our outfit or hair today? Let’s face it, our modern disconnect is rampant distraction.

Can you imagine if Grok walked across the savanna perpetually lost in thought about his latest wardrobe experiment? (As if he ever saw his reflection anyway…) He wouldn’t last long enough for it to matter. For our ancestors, life was an exercise in continual hyper-vigilance. Not every second, but close. It wasn’t just the risk of becoming another creature’s dinner either. Attentiveness also meant watching for weather, catching migratory patterns, and deciphering water sources – just to name a few examples.

The Primal Connection is to be found in giving the moment your full attention. It’s about minding the difference between thoughtful deliberation or reflection and so-called monkey brain. It’s about throwing off the strangling self-absorption we trap ourselves in every day standing in line with our phones or with our mental chatter. See the people, places, and possibilities in front of you. Feed this “highly successful” habit by observing your loved ones – all the changes and uniqueness that’s right there to be appreciated. Go on a walk with the goal of finding at least a dozen things you’ve never noticed. Use mindfulness check-ins to remember to come down from the mental busyness and come back to center throughout the day.

*** end quote ***

It’s hard not to “multi-task”.

It’s not like we are computers.

And even when they “multitask”, there is a certain about of inefficiency in doing it.

I remember coding BALR 14,15, Using 15, with all sorts of saving and restoring. That’s all “wasted effort”. We used to carefully consider if the “overhead” was worth the “gain”.

Sitting just doing one thing. Fully engaged. With no distraction. Is the closest thing we get here on the dirt.

If you’ve ever been in “the zone”, it’s as if time stands still. (And, I’ve had some Theology lecture that proved the principle that Hell is real and unending!)

If you’ve NEVER been in “the zone”, how sad!!!

Wartime Disposability

At http://www.avoiceformen.com is an excellent article by Jon Gunnarsson called, “The Pinnacle Of Male Disposability” that highlights how men throughout history have always been considered expendable by politicians, and even the people they protect. An example is the White Feathers, a group of upper-class British women during WWI who would hand out white feathers to any man not in uniform as a sign of cowardice to shame them into enlisting. This included boys as young as 15 who lied about their age so they could enlist and die.

Wes Carr wesjcarr@yahoo.com

*********

I guess if we had drafted women then there would have been a different reaction.

(I’m very much against using women i this fashion. Or, men for that matter.)

If we were Israel where there is no safe “rear”, or the enemy was landing on the coast. (Unless they had quarters to play the games.)

I have moved completely from my youth when I believe everything our Gooferment said.

Gulf of Tolkin changed that. Then I started to really study my history.

Somewhere along the way, for anyone who cares, I became a miniarchist almost an anarchist.

Wish I could say I was finished in my political maturaton.

I’m going to be more of a loon as I get I get older.

I could cry over the youngsters and their stupidity.

We were season ticket holders in the old college avenue gym.

Before RU women were big time. 

Frau Reinke would pick me up at the train station so we could make the games on time.

I asked her once why it was so important to her.

“I know I could have done that if we weren’t so poor. Those girls have no idea how lucky they are.”

Makes me sad to think about it now.

Glad that Grentz is honored.

I know she has one fan in high places pulling for her.

Monday, July 15, 2013

Dear Ms. Swift (@tswift13):

Re: 13 July 2013 MetLife appearance

You are missing a large sales opportunity. Clearly, from the extremely long lines at your merchandise sales booth, you are missing a LARGE volume of sales. May I suggest that some one on your staff immediately look into these lost opportunities. While many swiftees will seek your merchandise online, some percentage of sales are lost forever. As well as the bad image!

Since I know you bring your own displays, you should consider your own vending machines to augment the process or at the very least include in a venue contract a maximum line length.

I am, of course, will to consult on this matter with you at no cost to you at you convenience.

Good job reassigning most mens rooms to the ladies. Mond putting up some temporary signs direct us men to the few you have.

Bad job on the parking lot and traffic control. With all the engineering schools in the area, I can believe that exit traffic, and to some extent entering, is a disaster. I’ve been to many large venues that with bigger crowds empty faster. Last night, I saw an ambulance and trailing EMT truck stuck in the traffic with lights and sirens.  In addition, I’m astonish there wasn’t injuries mixing pedestrians and cars. I know I could do a better design job and I’m not that type of engineer.

RANT: Afghanistan = nothing to show for it

“We are leaving Afghanistan after 12 years with nothing to show for it but trillions of dollars wasted and thousands of lives lost. Afghanistan is a devastated country with a weak, puppet government—and now we negotiate with those very people we fought for those 12 years, who are preparing to return to power! Still we learn nothing.”

– Ron Paul

Imagine if the Sheeple and Clovers could have seen who the ONLY anti-war candidate was.

And, he’s the “loon”?

As Clint Eastwood said: “I know you were against the war in Iraq, and that’s okay. But you thought the war in Afghanistan was OK. You know, I mean — you thought that was something worth doing. We didn’t check with the Russians to see how did it — they did there for 10 years.”

SCANDAL: Initial post

I was listening on WMAL in DC and Joe deGenova rolled off lots of scandals. I thought under this heading that it would be useful to itemize them.

Obama-phone

Bengazhi – talking points 

Bengahzi – relief / stand down

NSA-gate

Sebelius HHS fundraising the Insurance companies

Holder – Fast and Furious

Holder – AP spyings

IRS – targeting Tea Party

Obama – food stamp fraud

I know I missed a lot.

Not that anyone cares.

No Sheeple or Clover will read my blog and wake up. 

But for my own sanity, I thought it would be useful to have a taxonomy.

The FBI: An American Cheka
by William Norman Grigg

*** begin quote ***

From its inception, the Soviet secret police agency was engaged in what we now call “Homeland Security Theater.” The same could be said of the FBI, which actually had a nine-year head start on its Soviet counterpart. J. Edgar Hoover’s two chief priorities were the collection of what the Soviets would call kompromat on significant public figures – politicians, policy-makers, celebrities – and the management of his secret police agency’s public image. With the advent of COINTELPRO in the 1950s, the FBI became fully engaged in a campaign of surveillance, harassment, disruption, and assassination (if only by proxy) targeting political dissidents. Since that time, the FBI has been a fully realized political police organization, in every evil sense of that expression.

 *** end quote ***

I remember the FBI story with Jimmy Stewart.

If I’d been paying attention I’d have seen the flaws.

Right at the beginning, a “federal agency” to handle interstate crime.

How could I have been so stupid?

The Goofermentcreates the problem with Prohibition and Banking laws, then of course they need an agency to combat what they create.

Stupid!

Well, 60 years later, I’ve wised up.

The two former Fox colleagues talked about the possible reasons for DHS detaining the Saudi man and O’Reilly said he’s willing to give Beck “a hearing.”

Beck laid out the story to O’Reilly, showing him a copy of the front page of the report on Ali Abdulrahman Alharbi and explained that page two described the man as “armed and dangerous.”

Clearly, we can not get the straight scoop from our politicians and bureaucrats.

Do any of the Sheeple and Clovers care?

Argh!

Now I lay me down to sleep, I pray the Lord my soul to keep.

God bless us all tonight.

FUN: LOVE THAT LASTS!

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

“Oh, now there’s only one kind of love that lasts. That’s unrequited love. It stays with you forever.” – Woody Allen

Nah!

You hit the right opposite and you wake up several decades later and say “it was over in a minute”!
