Sticky: New Policy: All Commenting Is Free for the Time Being and Foreseeable Future

At least for the time being and forseeable future, I am revoking my policy of charging $10 for lifetime commenting privileges for frequent commenters. It was instituted when I had 3,000 visitors a day. But at this new site, we are down to an average of ~200 visitors/day. It’s true that last month that went up to ~900 visitors/day, which was very, very nice. However, the eight month total is still averaging 200 visitors/day.

The old commenting system where frequent commenters had to pay will not be instituted again until I reach ~3,000 visitors a day, which could be quite some time, considering that we seem to be stuck ~200 visitors/day for some time now. So you all might be able to comment  here for free for some time now.

So all you pikers who got scared away when I suggested that you kick down some pocket change can come on back here and comment your cheap asses off! No really, I’m serious. Anyone not commenting because they think it’s not free is more than welcome to come back. Including all you tightwads, misers, and cheapskates.

Wink wink.

But even though commenting is free probably for some time now, it would still be very nice to get donations to keep the site running. See the post below for an explanation on how to do that.

Game/PUA: There Are Definitely Advantages to Having a Big Cock

SHI: Anyway, there’s no shame in admitting to a smaller dick. A beautiful Russian hooker once told me:

“It’s not your sword size that matter. It’s how you use it matter!”

Agree with that, Robert, LOL?

I have no idea the size of SHI’s wiener, no do I with to know. But I will add that the quoted section is what a lot of women say. On the other hand, pay attention to what women do, not what they say. And on this score, I am afraid that dick size is more important than people think.

I met a 23 year old woman recently who wanted to have an affair with me and cheat on her husband. One of her complaints was that his cock was small.

And I met a totally hot 20 year old Chinese woman recently who wanted me to “fuck a baby into her”, believe it or not. She had had two Chinese boyfriends before, and she said they both had small cocks.

I talked to a Russian woman in Russia who had an American guy come over there and stay with her for a few weeks. One of her complaints about not wanting to marry him, in addition to the perennial women’s complaint, “He didn’t listen!” was that his cock was small.

This woman and I were sending each other pics. I asked if she wanted to see with clothes or without clothes. I always ask this question very politely, and never get any bad feedback. Sending unsolicited dick pics is something almost all women really hate, and men do it all the time. It’s absolutely atrocious Game to do that.

Anyway, she said both. But she hadn’t understood the question because her English was shaky. I sent her some nudes and some cock pics. At first she was totally freaked out and asked why I did that, and I explained that she had agreed to let me send nudes, possibly because she didn’t understand my English.

She calmed down and then started repeating how big my cock was in apparent awe and definite excitement. Then started going on and on reiterating how she wanted a big cock, repeating it emphatically with exclamation points like a parrot: “I want a big cock! I want a big cock!”She was like a broken record.

I have met some women online who wanted to get together with me. They wanted cock pics before the first date, but also one of the things they asked was, “How big is your cock?”

For any of you perverts reading this, I’m 7 inches, or maybe 6 3/4. Average American man’s cock size is 5.6 inches. And yeah, a lot of women do like big cocks. A number of women were quite happy to see mine for the first time, and made remarks to that effect.

Even a Black woman once said, “You know, you’re pretty big!” with a bit of trepidation in her voice. A Black woman being taken aback by the size of a White man’s cock. That’s one of the best compliments I’ve ever received ha ha.

Men with Tiny Penises Are Often Not Happy Campers

Polar Bear: A lot of men take pride in their junk. Our joystick brings us so much joy. I’ve brought it up with guys at work, and they were proud of the way their dicks worded.

Have you ever talked to a man with a tiny dick, like a micropenis or something of that nature?

I knew a woman who had sex with a guy with a micropenis.

And I was doing free counseling for a while with a gay man who had a micropenis. He was also an absolute, 100% pedophile. He had never offended though and he was a very good person.

He was so worried that he might offend and “hurt a kid,” as he put it, that he was threatening to cut his dick off. The whole therapy of the guy was to keep him from cutting his cock off. That’s how good of a person he was. He was literally going to chop his dick off to protect kids from the possibility that he might molest them.

He did use child porn of some sort though, and that was why he was terrified of going to an actual clinician. He thought he was going to get turned in. I didn’t turn him in for possessing child porn. I’m not a cop.

His tiny dick was just one of the things he was depressed about. Men with tiny dicks are often not happy campers.

I believe eventually he went on some sort of sex-drive killing drugs, once again to protect kids from his possible actions.

The Made-Up Problems of Male Circumcision

Polar Bear: We’ll never know if we’d of liked foreskin more or less. Famous pornstar Rocco regrets getting cut.

There are absolutely a whole lot of risk factors associated with keeping a foreskin. #1 is you have the ugliest dick around. Even if I was a fag, I would not have anything to do with an ugly dick like that. I’d say gimme Rocco’s dick any day ha ha.

How women tolerate those ugly foreskin dicks, I have no idea. I met this Jewish woman and started dating her. One of the first things she asked me after she asked me I was impotent (I was 48 years old when I met her, and it’s already starting up at that age) was if I was cut. I said Hell no and she said, “Good, I don’t like cownecks.” Ha ha, funny word.

You have to clean the damn thing all the time which is a PITA. This disgusting stuff called smegma accumulates under it which is grosser than gay porn. You have to keep cleaning that pond scum off your dick. Also, it sets you up for being at risk of different things: getting HIV from a woman, penile cancer, and other things.

It’s cut off for health reasons, and you never remember the cut.

Men who say there is “trauma” associated with memories of your dick getting cut at age zero are just victimfags (Great new word I just made up!). Great big pussies who love to whine about how they’ve been victimized their whole lives. Oh boo hoo! Poor babies! Man up, who dontcha?

The stink that antisemites and MRA’s make about circumcision is completely irrational. For antisemites it’s yet another perfect reason to hate Jews, which they want to do anyway. For MRA’s it’s just another notch on their victim belt. One wants to hate Jews for a dumb reason, and the other wants to be a victim for a dumb reason.

I’ve had a circumcised dick my whole life and it’s been awful damn sensitive the whole time. I don’t even think I’d want a more sensitive dick. It might turn alive, become a penile serpent, and try to crawl out of my pants. Can you imagine the embarrassment?

Color me unimpressed.

PUA/Game: Statistical and Behavioral Alphas, Betas, and Omegas

Polar Bear: Some PUA guys on Youtube were triggering my gaydar. Not that big of a deal. Even in the most ideal European societies, there will be flamers and hillbillies. Even in the strict Middle Eastern countries, there are gays, as you detailed.

Think about it. PUA’s devote their entire lives to getting laid, getting pussy, seducing women, dating and fucking women. That’s all they live for. Exactly how many gay men would such a lifestyle appeal to? About zero. Don’t you realize that a lot of straight men set off people’s gaydar. If I had a dollar for every straight man I’ve known who many people thought was gay, I’d be a rich man. You can’t go on behavior.

Polar Bear: Geez, wonder how Omegas fare in a wolf pack.

I suppose there is room for Omegas in a wolf pack, if they even have Omegas. Maybe they don’t. Maybe they just have the Alpha and his Beta followers.

Polar Bear: Wonder if married men are Beta. By the time they have kids many seem whipped. In The Departed, the Alpha married man, Alec Baldwin, says, “A wedding ring lets women know your cock still works.” The Alpha single man, Jack Nicholson, responds, “You get your period yet?”

Statistical Betas and behavioral Betas are not the same thing.

Behaviorally, yes, a lot of married men are behavioral Betas as you describe. Once they are pussywhipped, they are behavioral Betas all the way.

And most men period are statistical Betas. Probably 65% of all men are statistical Betas. Most men are neither statistical Alphas nor statistical Omegas. There’s nothing wrong with being a statistical Beta. Your father, mine, your brothers, mine, yours and my uncles and male cousins are mostly statistical Betas. They used to do all right, but the sexual contract is fraying.

I am thinking there can never be more than 20% statistical Alphas in a society. Think about it. Will you ever have a society where more than 20% of the men are slayers trying to break Wilt Chamberlain’s record. Everybody can’t be a winner. Life is like a footrace. There’s winners and last place losers and a lot in between.  Every straight man cannot be a super-stud. It doesn’t work that way. Maybe in the gay community they can, but women are not so easy

Now we are getting to the point among young men where 30% are statistical Omegas. I doubt if more than half of those are behavioral Omegas though. Most are just normal guys getting shut out by increasingly picky women in the age of female hypergamy. It’s supposed to be only 15%. So that’s weird. That’s what the whole incel and PUA phenomena are all about – dealing with that reality of female hypergamy.

On the other hand, you have societies such as Latin America, the Arab World, North Africa, Iran, Turkey, the Mediterranean, Eastern Europe, Russia, maybe Africa where most of the men are behavioral Alphas. Those societies are not ideal but have you noticed that sexually they seem pretty good for men?

Personally, I think that most men could probably benefit from behaving in a more Alpha manner. Some are already doing it, so they don’t need help, but for a lot of men, it should help them with women.

Do you all follow me on the difference between statistical and behavioral Alphas, Betas, and Omegas?

Game/PUA: Pure Androgyne Game

I think Mystery has some gay outfits. All the PUA guys out there, some gays slip in through the cracks. I seen one on ROTK say he passed as a woman when made up to game guys he knew. The ones of note are straight though.

That gay man is almost a transvestite or tranny if he can pass as a woman. Maybe a drag queen.

I guess there are some gay PUA’s out there. Never heard of one though. Really I have been around the PUA scene forever and it is insanely homophobic. I’ve never even seen one bisexual guy in that scene. It’s toxic masculinity and that type of masculinity has as one of its components heavy duty homophobia.

Mystery is just an androgyne, a pure androgyne. He’s totally straight. A lot of women will go for straight pure androgynes.

Pure androgyne = strong-very strong masculinity, and then, well, there is a feminine side layered on top of that.

So he could have some pretty strong masculine and feminine vibes going on at the same time.  People don’t know how to react to men like this because they are confusing. I have known guys like that and people would say:

Are you gay or bi or straight or what?

You don’t make sense!

You’re too sexy to be straight!

Running Pure Androgyne Game

Personally I think it’s hot. I used to try to be a pure androgyne because it just came naturally, and women ate me up like candy back then. It’s not a turnoff at all for a lot of women.

The important thing is to run that strong masculine vibe because otherwise you are just being a feminine man, which definitely has some drawbacks. Notice I said feminine, not effeminate.

A lot of straight men are feminine and it’s no big deal, but women might react badly to it. Basically they will try to dom feminine men. Push them around, bully them, henpeck them, bitch them out, make them pussywhipped. He’s not really domming her, so she’s going to dom him.

I am convinced that one party has to dom the other. Unless you want to be dommed by your woman, you need to dom her at least a little bit. You can do it in a kind and gentle way though. You don’t have to be a cruel bastard.

However, effeminate (acts like a woman) straight men are rare indeed. A recent study found that 70% of gay men were effeminate and only 3% of straight men were.

Feminine men do not act gay. They are just soft, have soft voices, are gentle, sensitive, often pretty, maybe thin, don’t work out, like to read, write, play music, cook, etc. Maybe really into clothes. A lot of them feel very close to women because their brain is sort of like a woman’s brain. This enables them to understand women pretty well and connect with women in a strong way.

PUA/Game: What Is PUA? What Is Game? Nothing More Than the Skills of Seduction and Running a Relationship or Marriage

My view of PUA/Game or especially Game is that Game is simply all of the things that any man does to make himself attractive to women, to talk to women, to flirt with women, to get dates with women, to get sex with women, and even to have relationships and marriages with women.

It’s about how to get women and then do what you want with them, dump them or try to keep them around. Relationship Game is huge. It’s about how to keep a relationship going.

Seduction Game is simply all of the things and techniques a man does to try to get women, from the way he dresses, grooms himself, social skills, how he carries himself, conversational skills, on and on. That’s all it is. Therefore I hazard a guess to say that really most men run some sort of Game if they are trying to get women at all. It’s not cheap or sleazy or anything like that.

Sure, a lot of PUA’s are assholes, but PUA is just Game really. It’s about how to get and keep women if you wish to do that. PUA is the skills of seduction. Can someone explain to me why so many men are opposed to the skills of seducing women? Is there something wrong with perfecting the skills of attracting and seducing women?

Really most men need to run some sort of Game or use some sort of PUA just to get a woman in the first place. I mean that’s how you get them. They don’t exactly throw themselves into our laps, you know.

There is also Married Man’s Game. All it is is how to keep your marriage on the up and up, how to run your marriage so you are getting what you want out of it and hopefully she is getting what she wants out of it.

Why people are so opposed to this is beyond me. Please stop seeing this whole thing through the lenses of PUA morons and start seeing PUA and Game as helping guys (and ourselves) to get women. Phrasing it that way, would you be opposed to it?

Polar Bear: Honestly don’t respect it. The guys on Youtube I’ve seen go beyond acting gay for women. I suspect many are secretly gay. It’s abandoning or disconnecting from women in a way. Bro this, my man that.

“Forget the girls, my PUA bois in the Jacuzzi right now!” That’s what I pick up on them, more excited to meet other men. Not accusing anyone here but I wonder if the path leads to another man’s anus.

Few if any PUA’s are gay. There’s no homosexuality in the scene. Instead there is frightening misogyny, toxic masculinity (I hate the term but it applies here), and extreme homophobia. It’s like the ultimate anti-gay macho community.

Polar Bear: It’s also cheesy and childish to brag how much puss you get. “I smashed the whole club dude.” Ok Sitch, you dumb motherfucker.

It depends how you do it. Most of the guys I grew up with were slayers, and they definitely discussed their success stories. There is a bragging way to do it and a modest way to do it which could be called false modesty.

If you do it in the modest or false modest way, no one seems to care, and a lot of people get animated and praise you. If you do or did well with women, act embarrassed or even ashamed of it. Shrug your shoulders and look at the ground like it’s nothing. Talk about it like you talk about drinking a glass of water. Don’t act like you are better than other men. If you do it like that, it generally works pretty well.

I grew up with huge studs, players, and slayers, so I am used to guys talking about getting pussy, and it doesn’t really bother me unless they are actually trying to act like they are better than I am, which is not common.

Polar Bear: Chads are the easiest men to get along with. They get enough lady attention and are not threatened by other males, so they don’t have to compensate by being a dick.

This is absolutely perfect. This has been my experience too. Exactly.

Well, some Chads are assholes and are threatened by other men, but the best ones are not. Their attitude is “Male competition? What male competition LOL?”

They’re not thinking about the other guys and competing with them. To these Chads, when they are in a room, the only people in the room are Chad and all of the attractive women in the room. No matter how many men are in the room, none of them are really there. Any unattractive women are not in the room either. Since the other men are not even there, there’s nothing to compete with.

There is a type of Alpha called a Sigma that is like this. He is a sort of antisocial or artsy type, maybe a drug dealer. Whereas a lot of Alphas care a lot about what others think, Sigmas don’t give a damn what anyone thinks of them. They are the ultimate outsiders and rebels and that is their appeal.

Not saying I am Chad (though apparently I am lookswise), but this is how I have operated for a long time. I walk into a room full of people, and the only people there are me and any attractive women. Any men in the room, no matter how many, are not even present. Unattractive women are not there either. And I sort of treat each of them like they aren’t there.

However, any slayers or players in the room might be present and it’s good if you can find one and then you can be “the two slayers in the room checking out the babes,” and you work together as a team. I never or rarely compete with or get jealous of other men because I arrogantly don’t even think of them as competition. It’s not that I am better than they are, it’s more like they are not even in the room. I’m not insecure or worried that the other men are better than I am.

But this is correct. A lot of the best Chads don’t compete with other men at all. Why the Hell should they?

Polar Bear: How many of the big PUA’s are Chads? Likely none.

All of the big PUA’s were Chads. All goodlooking to very goodlooking men and all slayers. Mystery supposedly fucked 500 women and I believe him.

Chad is just a goodlooking man. Any man who is a 7-10 on a 1-10 scale is Chad, so up to 30% of men might be Chad. Chad or Alphas are the guys who is attractive to many or most of the women much of the time.

Normies or Betas are simply men of 4-6 on a 1-10 looks scale. Average. You know, like most people. Betas are attractive to some of the women some of the time. High tier Normies are men who are 6’s, and some women do find them attractive. With good Game they can do ok.

Omegas or subhumans (ha ha) are men who are 1-3 on a 1-10 scale. These are men who are unattractive, homely, or ugly, pick your adjective. They are attractive to almost none of the women almost all the time. They can get a woman on their same level though.

Hot women, 7-10’s, are called Staceys or Stacey.  Average women 4-6 are called Beckys or Becky. Unattractive, homely, etc. women are called unpleasant names like hambeasts (homely), ha ha, or landwhales or fatties (fat), ha ha.

Polar Bear: A Chad doesn’t talk about women, they talk about him. “Yeah, he can take his pick of any of us or all three,” A grandmother says to her daughter and granddaughter. That’s the power of a natural born Chad.

This is true in a sense, but Chads do tend to talk about women. They just don’t tend to brag about them. They will definitely discuss their conquests of successes with women, but it’s not a continuous subject. It’s more something that casually comes up now and then. There’s no need to brag because Chads already think they are hot shit, so there’s nothing to prove to anyone and nothing to be insecure about.

Alpha, Beta, and Omega can be statistical, as in Alphas are 20% of men, Betas are 65% of men and Omegas are 15% of men. That’s just a typical statistical breakdown and says nothing about behavior. It refers to how attractive they are to women.

However, there is also Alpha, Beta, and Omega behavior. We all know what Alpha behavior is. There are societies where most of them engage is behavior that is quite Alpha. Beta behavior is less masculine, more submissive, nice guy bullshit, wimpy, meek, passive, etc. Omega behavior is total or near-total fail with women.

The U.S. Is Recycling Its Big Lie About Iraq to Target Iran

A superb article. People need to get this through their damned heads: Iran does not have a Goddamned nuclear weapons program! The CIA even said so itself in its last word in the subject in 2007. Yet this evil government of ours keeps insisting that Iran has a nuclear weapons program.

This is literally the reason for the entire sanctions regime, the targeting and war threats against Iran, the bombing of pro-Iranian Iraqi Shia militias in Iraq, and the assassination of Hajj Qassem Soleimani.

How many Moronicans believe these big fat lie? How many Eurotrash believe this lie. It must be a large majority of both of them.

After all, the entire MSM in the West – every single newspaper, magazine, and TV and radio news show, along with all Western governments insists that Iran has a nuclear weapons program. Not even one media outlet anywhere in the West will admit the obvious truth that Iran doesn’t have a nuclear weapons and hasn’t had one for a minimum of 30 lies.

Guess (((who))) cooked up this big, fat lie in the (((US media))). Guess (((why))) the entire media and every state in the West keeps repeating this lie? I’ll tell you why. (((This))) is the reason why. (((These people))) want Iran invaded and destroyed because it is the only country left other than Syria which is a sworn enemy of (((their state))).

Guess who the US, UK, France, and Germany take orders from. (((This)) is who they take orders from.

Granted the US is also out to destroy Iran because the Shia-haters in Jordan, UAE, Bahrain, Egypt, Sudan, Morocco, and Turkey all hate Iran simply because they are profoundly bigoted Sunnis with a homicidal hatred and paranoia of Shia Muslims.

In addition, US imperialism has had a hard-on for Iran ever since the Embassy Takeover in 1979. We never got over it. And the rule of US imperialism is simply “never forgive, never forget.” Exactly the same motto as (((some people))). Coincidence? For the crime of standing up to the US and shouting “Death to America! Death to Israel!” for 40 years, US imperialism wants Iran gone.

In addition, Iran has no central bank. US imperialism demands that all countries have central banks.

In addition, Iran is selling its oil in currencies other than dollars. This threatens the “petrodollar,” one of the essential pillars of US imperialism. The use of the dollar in international trade has indeed been declining in the past 10 years. It’s down to 63% now and a number of countries are definitely going off the dollar and substituting other currencies or a basket of currencies for international trade. So it’s not just a petrodollar. It’s a world dollar.

As long as most international trade is conducted in dollars, US imperialism can charge full steam ahead. But when that number goes down below 50%, there are going to be some serious problems for US imperialism. Namely that we won’t be able to be the Dictator of the World anymore.

And this World Dictator and Most Powerful Nation on Earth nonsense is one thing that America wants to keep perhaps more than anything else. The US will do most anything, start wars, kill millions of people – it matters not- to retain those positions.

As Lenin said, power does not give up without a fight which was one reason that he said the electoral road to socialism could never happen and why he called people who supported it “parliamentary cretins.” It’s not so much that he opposed it, as he simply thought it would not work.

It is instructive to note that every single country that has gone off the dollar has been either attacked, subjected to heavy sanctions, had coups, color revolutions, or armed insurgencies unleashed upon. Sometimes more than one or all of the above.

  • Iraq went off the petrodollar. It was invaded soon after.
  • Libya went off the petrodollar. It was quickly attacked.
  • Syria went off the petrodollar. It had an insurgency unleashed upon it.
  • Iran is going off the petrodollar. It’s been subject to many threats and vicious sanctions.
  • North Korea went off the dollar. Result was totally brutal sanctions, many deaths, and endless military threats.
  • Venezuela is going off the petrodollar. Result: sanctions, economic warfare, and coup attempts with lockout strikes, use of armed forces, violent street demonstrations and now with an entire fake alternate facts government set up led by a man who was never elected President even one time.
  • Russia and China are going off the dollar. Result: sanctions, tariffs, and hybrid warfare was launched on both countries and both have been designated as top US enemies. A color revolution is being attempted in Hong Kong.

See how this works?

The U.S. Is Recycling Its Big Lie About Iraq to Target Iran

Sixteen years after the U.S. invasion of Iraq, most Americans understand that it was an illegal war based on lies about non-existent “weapons of mass destruction.” But our government is now threatening to drag us into a war on Iran with a nearly identical “big lie” about a non-existent nuclear weapons program, based on politicized intelligence from the same CIA teams that wove a web of lies to justify the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003.

In 2002-3, U.S. officials and corporate media pundits repeated again and again that Iraq had an arsenal of weapons of mass destruction that posed a dire threat to the world. The CIA produced reams of false intelligence to support the march to war and cherry-picked the most deceptively persuasive narratives for Secretary of State Colin Powell to present to the UN Security Council on February 5th 2003.

In December 2002, Alan Foley, the head of the CIA’s Weapons Intelligence, Nonproliferation, and Arms Control Center (WINPAC) told his staff,

If the president wants to go to war, our job is to find the intelligence to allow him to do so.

Paul Pillar, a CIA officer who was the National Intelligence Officer for the Near East and South Asia, helped to prepare a 25-page document that was passed off to Members of Congress as a “summary” of a National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iraq.

But the document was written months before the NIE it claimed to summarize and contained fantastic claims that were nowhere to be found in the NIE, such as that the CIA knew of 550 specific sites in Iraq where chemical and biological weapons were stored. Most members read only this fake summary, not the real NIE, and blindly voted for war. As Pillar later confessed to PBS’s Frontline:

The purpose was to strengthen the case for going to war with the American public. Is it proper for the intelligence community to publish papers for that purpose? I don’t think so and I regret having had a role in it.

WINPAC was set up in 2001 to replace the CIA’s Nonproliferation Center or NPC (1991-2001), where a staff of 100 CIA analysts collected possible evidence of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons development to support U.S. information warfare, sanctions, and ultimately regime change policies against Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Libya and other U.S. enemies.

WINPAC uses the U.S.’s satellite, electronic surveillance, and international spy networks to generate material to feed to UN agencies like UNSCOM, UNMOVIC, the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) which are charged with overseeing the non-proliferation of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons.

The CIA’s material has kept these agencies’ inspectors and analysts busy with an endless stream of documents, satellite imagery, and claims by exiles for almost 30 years. But since Iraq destroyed all its banned weapons in 1991, they have found no confirming evidence that either Iraq or Iran has taken steps to acquire nuclear, chemical, or biological weapons.

UNMOVIC and the IAEA told the UN Security Council in 2002-3 they could find no evidence to support U.S. allegations of illegal weapons development in Iraq.

IAEA Director General Mohamed ElBaradei exposed the CIA’s Niger yellowcake document as a forgery in a matter of hours. ElBaradei’s commitment to the independence and impartiality of his agency won the respect of the world, and he and his agency were jointly awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2005.

Apart from outright forgeries and deliberately fabricated evidence from exile groups like Ahmad Chalabi’s Iraqi National Congress (INC) and the Iranian Mojahedin-e Khalq (MEK), most of the material the CIA and its allies have provided to UN agencies has involved dual-use technology which could be used in banned weapons programs but also as alternative legitimate uses.

A great deal of the IAEA’s work in Iran has been to verify that each of these items has in fact been used for peaceful purposes or conventional weapons development rather than in a nuclear weapons program.

But as in Iraq, the accumulation of inconclusive, unsubstantiated evidence of a possible nuclear weapons program has served as a valuable political weapon to convince the media and the public that there must be something solid behind all the smoke and mirrors.

For instance, in 1990, the CIA began intercepting  Telex messages from Sharif University in Tehran and Iran’s Physics Research Centre about orders for ring magnets, fluoride, and fluoride-handling equipment, a balancing machine, a mass spectrometer, and vacuum equipment, all of which can be used in uranium enrichment.

For the next 17 years, the CIA’s NPC and WINPAC regarded these telexes as some of their strongest evidence of a secret nuclear weapons program in Iran, and they were cited as such by senior U.S. officials. It was not until 2007-8 that the Iranian government finally tracked down all these items at Sharif University, and the IAEA inspectors were able to visit the university and confirm that they were being used for academic research and teaching as Iran had told them.

After the U.S. invasion of Iraq in 2003, the IAEA’s work in Iran continued, but every lead provided by the CIA and its allies proved to be either fabricated, innocent, or inconclusive. In 2007, U.S. intelligence agencies published a new National Intelligence Estimate (NIE) on Iran in which they acknowledged that Iran had no active nuclear weapons program. The publication of the 2007 NIE was an important step in averting a U.S. war on Iran.

As George W. Bush wrote in his memoirs, “…after the NIE, how could I possibly explain using the military to destroy the nuclear facilities of a country the intelligence community said had no active nuclear weapons program?”

But despite the lack of confirming evidence, the CIA refused to alter the “assessment” from its 2001 and 2005 NIE’s that Iran probably did have a nuclear weapons program prior to 2003. This left the door open for the continued use of WMD allegations, inspections, and sanctions as potent political weapons in the U.S.’s regime change policy toward Iran.

In 2007, UNMOVIC published a Compendium or final report on the lessons learned from the debacle in Iraq. One key lesson was that “complete independence is a prerequisite for a UN inspection agency” so that the inspection process would not be used “either to support other agendas or to keep the inspected party in a permanent state of weakness.”

Another key lesson was that “proving the negative is a recipe for enduring difficulties and unending inspections.” The 2005 Robb-Silberman Commission on the U.S. intelligence failure in Iraq reached very similar conclusions, such as that“…analysts effectively shifted the burden of proof, requiring proof that Iraq did not have active WMD programs rather than requiring affirmative proof of their existence.

“While the U.S. policy position was that Iraq bore the responsibility to prove that it did not have banned weapons programs, the Intelligence Community’s burden of proof should have been more objective…

“By raising the evidentiary burden so high, analysts artificially skewed the analytical process toward confirmation of their original hypothesis – that Iraq had active WMD programs.”

In its work on Iran, the CIA has carried on the flawed analysis and processes identified by the UNMOVIC Compendium and the Robb-Silberman report on Iraq.

The pressure to produce politicized intelligence that supports U.S. policy positions persists because that is the corrupt role that U.S. intelligence agencies play in U.S. policy, spying on other governments, staging coups, destabilizing countries, and producing politicized and fabricated intelligence to create pretexts for war.

A legitimate national intelligence agency would provide objective intelligence analysis that policymakers could use as a basis for rational policy decisions. But as the UNMOVIC Compendium implied, the U.S. government is unscrupulous in abusing the concept of intelligence and the authority of international institutions like the IAEA to “support other agendas,” notably its desire for regime change in countries around the world.

The U.S.’s “other agenda” on Iran gained a valuable ally when Mohamed ElBaradei retired from the IAEA in 2009 and was replaced by Yukiya Amano from Japan. A State Department cable from July 10th, 2009 released by Wikileaks described Mr. Amano as a “strong partner” to the U.S. based on “the very high degree of convergence between his priorities and our own agenda at the IAEA.”

The memo suggested that the U.S. should try to “shape Amano’s thinking before his agenda collides with the IAEA Secretariat bureaucracy.”  The memo’s author was Geoffrey Pyatt, who later achieved international notoriety as the U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine who was exposed on a leaked audio recording plotting the 2014 coup in Ukraine with Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland.

The Obama administration spent its first term pursuing a failed “dual-track” approach to Iran in which its diplomacy was undermined by the greater priority it gave to its parallel track of escalating UN sanctions. When Brazil and Turkey presented Iran with the framework of a nuclear deal that the U.S. had proposed, Iran readily agreed to it.

But the U.S. rejected what had begun as a U.S. proposal because by that point, it would have undercut its efforts to persuade the UN Security Council to impose harsher sanctions on Iran. As a senior State Department official told author Trita Parsi, the real problem was that the U.S. wouldn’t take “yes” for an answer.

It was only in Obama’s second term after John Kerry replaced Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State, that the U.S. finally did take “yes” for an answer, leading to the JCPOA between Iran, the U.S., and other major powers in 2015. So it was not U.S.-backed sanctions that brought Iran to the table but the failure of sanctions that brought the U.S. to the table.

Also in 2015, the IAEA completed its work on “Outstanding Issues” regarding Iran’s past nuclear-related activities. On each specific case of dual-use research or technology imports, the IAEA found no proof that they were related to nuclear weapons rather than conventional military or civilian uses.

Under Amano’s leadership and U.S. pressure, the IAEA “assessed” that “a range of activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device were conducted in Iran prior to the end of 2003,” but that “these activities did not advance beyond feasibility studies and the acquisition of certain relevant technical competences and capabilities.”

The JCPOA has broad support in Washington. But the U.S. political debate over the JCPOA has essentially ignored the actual results of the IAEA’s work in Iran, the CIA’s distorting role in it, and the extent to which the CIA has replicated the institutional biases, reinforcing of preconceptions, forgeries, politicization and corruption by “other agendas” that were supposed to be corrected to prevent any repetition of the WMD fiasco in Iraq.

Politicians who support the JCPOA now claim that it stopped Iran getting nuclear weapons, while those who oppose the JCPOA claim that it would allow Iran to acquire them.

They are both wrong because as the IAEA has concluded and even President Bush acknowledged, Iran does not have an active nuclear weapons program. The worst that the IAEA can objectively say is that Iran may have done some basic nuclear weapons-related research some time before 2003, but then again, maybe it didn’t.

Mohamed ElBaradei wrote in his memoir, The Age of Deception: Nuclear Diplomacy in Treacherous Times that if Iran ever conducted even rudimentary nuclear weapons research, he was sure it was only during the Iran-Iraq War which ended in 1988, when the U.S. and its allies helped Iraq kill up to 100,000 Iranians with chemical weapons.

If ElBaradei’s suspicions were correct, Iran’s dilemma since that time would have been that it could not admit to that work in the 1980s without facing even greater mistrust and hostility from the U.S. and its allies and risking a similar fate to Iraq.

Regardless of uncertainties regarding Iran’s actions in the 1980s, the U.S.’s campaign against Iran has violated the most critical lessons U.S. and UN officials claimed to have learned from the debacle in Iraq.

The CIA has used its almost entirely baseless suspicions about nuclear weapons in Iran as pretexts to “support other agendas” and “keep the inspected party in a permanent state of weakness,” exactly as the UNMOVIC Compendium warned against ever again doing to another country.

In Iran as in Iraq, this has led to an illegal regime of brutal sanctions under which thousands of children are dying from preventable diseases and malnutrition and to threats of another illegal U.S. war that would engulf the Middle East and the world in even greater chaos than the one the CIA engineered against Iraq.

How Much Sympathy Can We Have for Incels, Etc.?

https://moviechat.org/tt7286456/Joker/5e2820cf81d1d417f2bd96c3/But-how-much-sympathy-can-we-have-for-Joker-types

Warning: maybe spoilers above

Well, I understand many get a bad hand in life, but do these people have a right to exact revenge at the level of the Joker (school shooters, the like etc..)?

I mean, aren’t these people somewhat responsible for simply giving in to inappropriate behavior? For instance, White Supremacists may have had a bad lot in life leading them into what they are, but does that excuse it? Does the fact that incels can’t get sex excuse shootings from them?

Someone noted that society was supposed to get sex workers to keep nerds from shooting up schools (sarcasm) – LOL.

Well, I see these incels as just people not willing to learn basic social skills, and working out at a gym isn’t that tough. Just make time for about 30 minutes a few times a week, and things should look up!

Sympathy for Dangerous Narcissists?

They were made that way just like any other victim, but society cannot tolerate their shit.

Mad Max

I didn’t get the movie. It’s almost impossible to follow the story, and the Australian accents demand subtitles – LOL. Anyway, it being Australian gives it the charm and also the hard to follow story. Nonetheless, it’s just too hard to follow. Anyway, it’s what you call an art film I think. It’s interesting to gaze at but impossible to get into.

Game/PUA: A Bit about the Finer Points of Social Rules and Communication

SHI: How’s it going nowadays with your rotten little SJW fruitcakes, the ones with a major entitlement acquired after a lifetime of feminist brainwashing?

Oh, I am going to a new Fagbucks now and everything is pretty much all right.

If People Act Shitty, Act Shitty Right Back to Them

If they’re shitty to me, I’m kind of shitty right back to them. I am doing this in other places too. Sometimes I even get aggressive with people. It’s weird. Some people just totally back down and kiss my ass when I get aggro with them. So weird. I’m usually scared to fight back against people because I am afraid of a scene or a ban, so I don’t do it, but it really does work. You really do need to fight back against people!

And I am learning new social rules bullshit. I mean you keep learning this stuff your whole life, really. I had blown off a lot of the rules that I thought were moronic (most of them) my whole life, but I am finding that life really does go a lot smoother if you follow more of those rules.

The rules are extremely subtle and hard to figure out, but if you’re smart, you can do it. Now, I am quite socially aware, but I can see how an autist would go completely insane with this stuff. I mean they cannot even understand normal human communication much less this weird undercover, near-subliminal stuff.

Be Careful How You Talk to or Even Look at Young Women, Especially if You Are Older

One thing I am doing is that I am being very careful about talking to young women.

How to Look at Hotties without Staring

Or even looking at them. I don’t even look at them all that much. And I am careful about looking at the baristas. If there’s one that’s hot, I look at her a bit, then I look away for a bit, then I look back for a bit. That’s the only way to do it. Otherwise you are staring. I learned this from a PUA site post on social communication. This actually works pretty well.

Or you can look above them or to the side of them. You can’t see them perfectly because you are not focusing on them, but you can see them fairly well. You can actually look at a whole room this way by just looking at a spot on the wall over everyone’s heads.

You can’t see anyone well but you can still actually see everyone in the whole room all at once in a panorama view albeit a bit off-focused, so if anybody did anything odd, you would see it right away. I guess cops, soldiers, etc. need to monitor groups or crowds like this.

You can meditate or just let your mind go blank while you look at the spot on the wall. I guess some Normies might think it’s weird, but so what? Fuck em. I mean people will throw you out of a store for looking at a spot on a wall and meditating? WTF. What, you hurt the wall’s feelings?

Wait for an IOI, Especially with Young Women

With young women, I don’t say one word to them unless they give me an IOI. They have to look at me and smile, maybe even more than once. If I say something and get a cold response, I don’t say anything more.

Punish People for Blatant Assholery

I was next to a hostile young woman who refused to look at me the other day. I was in front of her in line. I deliberately took my time in line putting my stuff away very slowly so the bitch would have to wait extra longer. She and the barista both gave me these very puzzled looks. I just smiled a bit to myself and thought, “Hey bitch! If you took that hate look off your stupid face, I would have put my stuff away a lot quicker!”

Don’t Even  Look at Bitches Who Hate You No Matter How Hot They Are

The young women who hate me, I mostly just refuse to look at them, or I look to the side of them with this really evil, mean look. I’m not looking at anything really – just a window or nothing at all a bit to the side of or over their heads. It looks like you are looking angrily at a window or wall, and no one really cares. But they seem to get the message.

Before, I kept looking at a chick if I thought she was hot even if she hated me, which many of them do. Now I don’t do that anymore.

Beware of the “Unconscious Cope” We Men Have about Women

Also, if I get what might be an IOI – like a stare – I think again and consider maybe it wasn’t done for a friendly reason, so I am not interpreting everything as an IOI anymore.

This is a good idea as we men have unconscious bias which is sort of an unconscious cope where we always tend to think positively in terms of “this chick likes me” no matter what she does. I think our minds just do this unconsciously as some unconscious cope or optimism bias, but it pays to be aware of it because it makes you think women like you even if they don’t, and it misconstrues innocuous or even unfriendly behavior as friendly. Which results in creep-shaming.

To Women, Every Comment, Remark, Question, or Joke Means, “Want to Fuck?”

I complimented a barista on her makeup the other day as she had changed it. She took this as a come-on. We’ve known each other for years.

She’s fat and I wouldn’t fuck her with my worst enemy’s dick, but you say hi to a stupid woman and to them that means, “Want to fuck?” It’s really narcissistic and self-centered of them to assume that all these guys want to fuck them, when half of us wouldn’t touch their fat asses with a 10 foot pole and an 11 foot extension.

Now that she did that (interpreting my makeup comment as an inappropriate come-on), I am cold her to, often refuse to tip her, don’t look at her, and definitely won’t say anymore stuff about clothes or makeup.

Make a Point of Acting Particularly Friendly to People Who Are Nice to You, Especially in Front of Hostiles, to Send a Message to the Hostiles “Look what happens when you act nice”

Baristas who are friendly get the tips I saved up from the hostiles, often with a compliment like that, “This is for good service. You always give me good service.” (with a pointed emphasis on the “you” and the “good service”). See how that works?

You Can’t Go Around Starting Questions with Everyone

Basically, you can’t just go around starting conversations with everyone. Especially if someone is next to you and refusing to look at you with a cold look on her face, a conversation is probably not going to work out. Don’t try to talk to bitches who have cold, shut-down faces. Those faces mean “Don’t talk to me, asshole.”

Figure out When a Conversation Is Being Shut Down and End It

There’s a guy I know there who I have talked to a few times. He’s a fat pig and he’s quite unfriendly for some reason I never understood and never will. I tried to talk to him again recently, and he gave me the same thing. Now I am never going to talk to him again. You need to punish people for being assholes, not just keep coming back for more punches.

 

One thing I need to do is to shut down conversations that seem a bit hostile. Basically, if you say something, and you get a one-sentence answer, and they turn away, it’s a shut-down. Warm, friendly, two-way conversation doesn’t work like that. They don’t like you or they don’t want to talk to you.

We tend to keep talking to them due to a  subconscious cope in favor of “thinking people like us versus thinking that they don’t” comes into play, and we keep thinking they will get nice if we just talk to them a bit more. Hate to say it but nope.

Also, it is quite insulting when you try to talk to someone, and they act like they don’t want to talk to you. It’s an insult and your mind does not want to believe this insulting, rude response is actually true because it’s hurtful to think this person dislikes you so much they won’t even talk to you. So this subconscious cope comes in where your mind simply refuses to see this as an insult as it hurts your ego to be insulted. So your ego says it wasn’t an insult after all! See how it works?

If They Don’t Like You at First, They Won’t Change Their Minds Later on

In other words, haters never change. Once again, this is unconscious optimism – “He was a dick before, but this time, he’s going to like me because I really am a cool, good person.” Nope, if someone acts like doesn’t like you, they don’t like you. Period. You keep trying over and over to see if they will change their mind, and basically they just never do. So just stop. Recognize the subconscious cope here and nip it in the bud.

Figure out the Fake “I Didn’t Hear You” Message

I am also getting better about this weird subliminal communication where you say something, and the person hears you but pretends not to hear you. People do this crap a lot, and I always think they didn’t hear me, so I repeat myself, sometimes more than once. Apparently this is a social faux pas. A very tricky, high-level one but a social faux pas nonetheless.

Another thing they might do which is a bit easier to figure out is to respond to your speech with an angry or outraged and often rather loud, “What!?” That means, “Um, I didn’t hear that!” I don’t always get that either, and sometimes I repeat my words. It’s always a bad idea as their response, if they have one, only gets worse.

They also might put up both arms and cross them back and forth while saying, “Ain’t gonna go there.” They might smile as they do that. End that line of talk right then and there. You’re not going to convince them to “go there” by continuing the line of conversation, which I tend to do sometimes.

It doesn’t really work to repeat the statement, as they just act annoyed and don’t answer or give some weird and also very subliminal response that is hard to figure out as it’s all coded and masked. The response tends to say something like, “I didn’t hear that (but I really did)!” or, “I really don’t want to talk about this!”

Well, if you say something and it seems like they should have heard you but act like they didn’t, figure out that they are playing this “I didn’t hear you” game and don’t ask again. In particular, think about what you said said or asked. Is the sort of thing that might seem sensitive and the person might not want to discuss it because they see it as inappropriate, insulting, or a come-on? Usually you can figure out how they might not want to answer due to the nature of the statement or question.

Or certainly don’t say it again more than once. When people do this, by not answering, they are saying, “That question is annoying, inappropriate, possibly racist/banned, etc., something I don’t want to talk about, so I am pretending that I didn’t hear you.” In my 60’s, I am just figuring this out for the first time, though I have somehow known for a long time that people do this.

It’s a bit hostile and dicky. It’s better to say that you’d rather not discuss that with a smile or something along those lines, but people like to be dicky. I do it myself sometimes if someone asks me a retarded question that’s meaningless or silly, especially if asked in a hostile tone. I simply don’t respond. I never did that before but I am starting to do it now.

This is a real tough one from a social communication point of view because the automatic tendency is to assume that the person didn’t hear you and repeat it, except if you do that, it’s a social error.

I talked to my Mom and she said that if it seems like they are doing that, don’t say it a second time and don’t say it on another occasion, as it’s some sort of banned question or statement.

And anyway, we both agreed, even if they didn’t hear it, then obviously they were not too concerned about your speech, so why should you repeat it for someone who won’t even give you the dignity of listening to your speech? She also said that it’s a bit shitty and hostile (she called them jerks) to do the “pretend I didn’t hear you” thing. She said it’s more polite just to say you’d rather not discuss it.

In case you all didn’t know about this weird social rule, here you go. I know all of you have experienced this before, so maybe you want to take notes here.

Comments to Non-Native English Speakers about Their Linguistic History

I asked a barista recently if he spoke another language, as he definitely has an accent (I didn’t mention the accent, of course). He really did not want to answer that as maybe he found it insulting or inappropriate or whatever.

Most people tend to answer that question if you ask it nicely enough. If someone has an accent or speaks broken English, and you wish to discuss it, it’s best to ask, “Do you speak another language?” other than bring up the fact of their accent or their broken English, which they might see as an insult.

If their English is nevertheless excellent, after they explain to you that they speak another language and English was not their first language, you can compliment them on their English to soften the blow a bit because in the US, it’s seen as a possible racist insult to imply someone doesn’t speak English as a first language.

You can also ask them how old they were when they came here, and most will answer. I usually throw in the bit where I am a linguist who is fascinated by languages, and they relax and stop thinking I might be a racist.

Sometimes I might notice that they have an accent, but I will shrug, smile and downplay and say that if you come after age 8, you just get an accent, and that’s all there is to it. Most people don’t mind this conversation, as you are asking them about their life as if it is interesting, and most people love to talk about themselves.

Always try to shrug, smile or downplay any comment or question that could possibly be taken as an insult especially if they act a bit taken aback by it. I find that this generally calms them down and they stop feeling possibly insulted.

A Bit on the Celtic Languages: Welsh, Cornish, and Manx

@SHI comments on this post.

SHI: A Welshman fluent in his native tongue must be the saddest person around.

Why would a Welshman be sad? 20% of the population speaks Welsh now.

SHI: I believe the last native Cornish speaker died sometime in the 19rh century.

Cornish supposedly died out in the late 1700’s. The last speaker was said to be a woman,  a  fishmonger or seller of fish. But incredibly enough, it actually looks like it lingered on all the way into the early 20th Century or maybe later. A recent article I read said that actually Cornish never really died and has always been with us.

SHI: Manx must be doing well though. A separate island breeds isolation and preservation.

Manx died out in 1974, but it’s been revived lately too with 2,500 speakers. Some speakers are even raising their kids in Manx! There are now ~35 native speakers who grew up speaking Manx!

There is a Manx-native school too. The last speaker was Ed Mandrell, a fisherman who died in 1974. He was the last native speaker of Manx, not the last speaker of Manx. At the time that Mandrel died, there were ~300 second language speakers who could speak it more or less fluently but were not native speakers. So Manx actually never even went away! That second language speakers learned it as students.

Mandrell speaking in 1964. He’s talking to Brian Stowell, who learned Manx when he was older. However, Stowell is still alive and he is one of the best modern Manx speakers out there, with a large vocabulary.

That English accent of Mandrell’s is a kicker. It sounds very much like Scots, the English-like language still spoken in parts of Scotland. It’s actually not English at all. It’s a separate language and English and Scots have ~41% intelligibility. They split 500 years ago. Modern speakers from Man sound a lot like Scousers or Liverpudlians.

There are speakers in the comments saying that they speak Irish, and they can understand a lot of his Manx. Manx was created after all by a movement of Irish speakers to the Isle of Man. One commenter says it sounds a lot like Ulster Irish, his dialect of Irish.

Trash’s Anti-Celtic Prejudice

Despite the fact that many White Supremacists on Stormfront are probably Celts, and in fact, the Southern tormentors of Blacks were Celts, generally, there’s nevertheless a feeling among some White Supremacists that Celts are degenerate Whites prone to booze, violence, drugs (pain pills in their case) – all those things that also tear up Black/Latino communities.

Also, on top of that, they’re stereotyped as not being very industrious. I mean, they could never replace the German master race on that score.

The whole White on White prejudice is similar to German’s feelings about the Slavs. In fact, Hitler despised the Slavs – seeing them as vastly inferior – hence why supposedly they needed “Jews to rule over them.”

So anyway, Trash’s beef against West Virginia and Appalachia in general stems from the fact that he sees it as a place settled by Scots. In other words, settled by Lynrd Skynrd – LOL.

Is It the Truth?

It’s just racist lies. True, Celts have not been as robotically industrious as Germans, Japanese, Chinese, or Koreans, but honestly, they are definitely industrious enough! In fact, plenty of well-adjusted, psychologically normal people live in Appalachia. There are huge problems there, but I don’t think they’re genetic in nature. They’re easily cured once people get Christianity and end the whole cycle of daddy rape or whatever other degeneracy is going on.

 

Trash’s View of West Virginia

Regarding the commentator on the old WordPress.com blog Trash:

This pretty much sums up massive snobbery equivalent to the White Supremacist view of “Mother Africa”.

In fact, in his comments, he claims low class “trash” were dumped on the colonies and many came to West Virginia.

Anyway, on a deep level, types like Trash according to @Robert Lindsay get off on superiority, and while certain of their comments can be funny to listen to, they certainly aren’t very cool.

But Aren’t Many “Cracker” Whites Obnoxious?

Yeah, but so are many niggas and Latinos. In fact, what group doesn’t have an obnoxious subset of people?

Getting Even for White Supremacist Nigga Hating

Maybe Trash was just dishing back what they dished out to him. I mean, who likes to be dehumanized? Maybe he wasn’t really a narcissist but just a revenge type.

Why Is Hostel So Disturbing?

Hostel Movie Spoiler

Well, it’s highly disturbing because the people tortured and killed don’t deserve it. It’s as simple as that! Albeit this is only based on the limited info we have about the characters.

Well, the college kids were into getting laid, but seriously, did that justify being hunted, tortured, and killed? This movie must have been made by feminists – LOL.

Anyway, another deep thought about the way these victims are treated is a parallel with how we treat animals. Don’t we treat animals like that in the food industry and medical experiments?

[collapse]

Reality Check for People

When I was in school, I threatened a lot of people because I believed in getting even. However, this one guy would always make fun of me and say, “I’m scaaaaaaareeeeed!” We are good friends now. In fact, he’s one of the few people who stands up to the Facebook Hillbilly Potheads (Trump drones).

So it does seem like some people need to be bullied some because they need to realize that threats aren’t making things better. However, movies and TV teach that fighting and comebacks shut down opponents. But I’m guessing in most schoolyard situations, they don’t. In fact, all that impresses people in school or prison is an anti-authority figure willing to take on the administration. This could be normally done by dares (pull the fire alarm, moon the teacher).

How about Narcissists?

Since they think they are God, they certainly need a reality check! However, some like Steve Jobs are actually creators who at least aren’t into racism or serial killing.

Wouldn’t a reality check lower their productive output?

Likable Narcissists

https://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/steve-jobs-manipulation-guide-getting-what-you-want-a7924321.html

Some have more appeal to the general public. They don’t have the racist stigma associated with White Supremacists, for example.

But are these people really narcissists or just creators obsessed with a goal? I mean I love to create too, and I have a difficult time seeing Steve Jobs as evil.

Alt Left: 100% Fact: Donald Trump Has Dementia

Check out this guy’s Twit thread. There are also many physicians chiming in in  agreement. The poster says he has gotten many messages from physicians who agree with him but don’t want to go public. He has the same thing that Linda Ronstadt has, but he’s farther along. This is simply 100% fact. Read some of those posts on that guy’s Twit and see for yourself.

This poster also says that Trump’s dementia is declining so rapidly that he probably will not even be able to run for re-election in November. I absolutely despise Trump as much as anyone, but even I do not wish this horrible disease on anyone. Dementia is the worst. I would not wish it on my worst enemy, sorry. Some diseases are just too fucked up, beyond the pale.

A Bit on Breton and Other Minority Languages of France

@SHI, responding to this post:

Sounds like Welsh or something in the Celtic languages family.

Perhaps, Breton or any other minority languages? I think it’s spoken in modern France.

Yes, it is Celtic. Good job for getting that.

Nope, it’s not Breton. Yes, Breton is spoken in Brittany in France at the far northwestern part of the country. It stems from a migration by Welsh speakers to that part of France in 1300, so it’s close to Welsh. Apparently they can’t really understand each other though. I would guess ~30% intelligibility, if that.

Both languages are part of a branch of Celtic called Byrthonic. Believe it or not, 2,000 years ago, Byrthonic languages were the only languages spoken in England and Wales. They’ve gone extinct now except for Welsh, Manx, and Cornish.

The other branch is called Goidelic and includes Irish and Scottish Gaelic.

Although Breton has 500,000 speakers, it’s not in very good shape because France tries to destroy every non-French language spoken in the country. Most speakers are older and there are few young speakers.

However, a number of private schools have been set up to teach children. The teach them a new form called Unified Breton, which oddly and comically enough is so different from the other Breton languages spoken that the older speakers cannot understand these New Breton speakers.

France has even attacked the other langues d’oil, of which French (Parisien) is only one. Parisien happened to be the langue d’oil spoken in Paris, so it became Standard French. However, in WW 1, 80% of French troops could not speak French! Can you imagine that?

They spoke the other langues d’oil, the various Occitan languages (perhaps as many as 18),  Arpitan  or Franco-Provencal (which may also be u to 20 languages), Souletin Basque, Breton (four different languages), Alsatian (German), or West Flemish. Incredible, isn’t it? The other langues d’oil are in horrible shape, though most have not gone extinct yet.

They split from Parisien and the other langues d’oil from Old French around 1,000 years ago, so they are very divergent. Intelligibility between Poitevin and Lorraine is estimated at 1%! Believe it or not, Poitevin still has monolinguals in their 60’s. A form of Norman spoken on the border of Normandy and Brittany also has monolinguals, usually farm workers in their 40’s and 50’s. Isn’t that incredible?

SHI: It’s clearly not Manx or Cornish.

Ha ha, what makes you so sure about that second opinion, my man?

Alt Left: Heavy US Casualties in Afghanistan

8 American soldiers were killed and at least 6 more wounded while 12 Afghan troops were also killed in two separate attacks. A US mercenary was taken prisoner in a third attack. All attacks happened in the last three days.

The first attack was an insider attack that occurred when an Afghan soldier attacked a combined US-Afghan force in the Sherzad District in Nangarhar Province. These insider attacks are quite common. The people who do them were either already radicalized or become radicalized while in the army. A few have escaped and in all cases, they joined the Taliban. 2 US soldiers were killed and 6 were wounded, and 6 Afghan soldiers were killed.

The other attack also took place in Nangarhar in an operation where US and Afghan troops were trying to clear an area there that had been completely overrun by the Taliban recently. It was unclear whether the Taliban or the Islamic State was behind that attack.

Nangarhar has long been overrun with militants. This is where Obama bin Laden and his forces hid out and escaped from in Tora Bora after all in the southern part of the province on the border with North Waziristan in Pakistan.

In a third case, a US contractor was taken prisoner by the Taliban in Khost Province. He appears to have been a mercenary. Khost has long been overrun with militants also. It’s also on the border with Pakistan, though it’s a bit to the south. I think it borders on South Waziristan.

Mass Shooting in Thailand

These don’t usually happen outside of this insane country, but here is one from Thailand. Of course it was a soldier because those are the only people sane allowed to have guns in any sane society, obviously not including the US. Death toll is now up to 26.

Apparently he was mad at rich people. Well, that’s understandable but shooting random people out walking around is not the proper response. Most of them are probably not rich anyway.

Shooting started at a military base, where he shot his commanding officer. Then he moved to a nearby shopping center, where he stationed himself on a roof and played shooting gallery for a while. Unfortunately, he was an excellent marksman in the military.

These murder sprees actually do happen in places other than the US. It’s just that they aren’t very common, and it’s unusual for the shooter to get such a high death toll.

This one is not as hard as it seems. You should at least get the language family right, if not the language itself. And yes, it is definitely spoken in Europe. This language is not widely known though, and probably a lot of people have never heard of it or think it doesn’t exist. Unlike many European languages, it does not have a large number of speakers.

Just Watched LA Confidential

Based on James Ellroy’s novel of the same name. I’ve never read any of his stuff, but I’m told that he’s great.

Quite a movie!

Anyone here watched it?

Interestingly, True RomanceMulholland Drive (had to be), Se7en (believe it or not!), and LA Confidential (duh) were all set in LA! Of course, I am an LA man myself, born and raised. I was born in Inglewood, believe it or not. That was when it was livable, before it become Inglewatts.

Even after it became Inglewatts, we still went to the LA Forum there all the time to see rock concerts. Also the LA Lakers always played at the forum. It was Black and dangerous when we went to concerts there, but you just parked in the parking lot, and it wasn’t that big of a deal.

Just try not to get out of your car on the way in or out if you can help it. You really don’t want to be in the hood after dark. I’ve been in the hood many times in daytime, mostly driving but sometimes even walking (!) around. It’s not particularly dangerous but I didn’t go far away from my workplace. There are some crackhead women out there, but they’re not really dangerous. They’re just nuts.

Never had any problems walking or driving around the hood in the daytime all my years except for one time when I was a boy, and that was in Watts.

I did go to Lynwood at night once though. I used to drive around there all the time ion daytime to go out to get lunch. It was nothing.

But once I went there after dark for some insane reason, and I was absolutely terrified. I was at a red light, and the guys in the car in front of me all turned around and looked right at me. They were all Black or Hispanic or mixed (that’s quite a common mix in the hood nowadays, especially in Lynwood). The looks on their faces were of stark, homicidal hostility and perhaps incredulity that I was even there at all.

Seriously, don’t go to the hood at night if you can help it. Day and night are two different worlds in the hood. One’s doable but not optimal by any means (mostly bad scenery), but the other is sheer, utter terror.

Just Watched Mulholland Drive

Just finished watching True Romance, written by Quentin Tarantino. I’m afraid I am becoming a Tarantino addict. There is just something about his movies! Anybody seen it?

After that, I watched David Lynch’s Mulholland Drive. Anyone seen it? It’s weird as Hell and I still don’t completely understand the plot but I find his movies spellbinding.

Homosexuality and Nazism in Today’s World

Well, I know at least two gay guys  from a forum – and one for sure 100 percent gay and on the prowl.   Now, the 2nd one – seemed in-the-closet gay – by his weird comments.

Anyway, this whole phenomenon is a bunch of guys – who would persecute and kill gays – while at the same time being gay.  Also, there are incredibly anti-sexual, on the level of Puritans.  Now they’re all for women being in their place, but they hate porn – or any talk about women.    They also hate drugs – or anything they see as “degenerate”.

Well, the one extreme gay talked about being a Christian, meanwhile – using every curse word in the book in his posts – lol.

What are we to think of these people?  Funny is one word – and definitely HYPOCRITE of a sort.

Men Opposing Women/Vices to Safeguard Masculinity

To an extent I can understand this.  Definitely an in-control man is more in-control – by not being controlled by vices.

Opinions on Non-Whites?

The opinions are even more hateful than seen on Beyond Highbrow – maybe even Stormfront.  These guys are nearly 100 percent racially closed-minded in all aspects.  it’s actually comical how hateful these guys are.

Where did these guys live?

Chicago and New York City, respectively.  Well, I could understand the rage – based on the location.  But then again, always these people have the freedom to leave very easily.  It’s almost – as if they enjoy being beat up by blacks!

But were they beat up cause they gay?  Yeah, inquiring minds want to know!  In fact, blacks hate gays, along with whites in a black-majority area – and that’s a huge give-away!

Are Doctors Doing Their Job?

How much are the fucking up?  If they do screw up, how many are held accountable?  Well, I know two diabetic women.  One had a successful c-section and baby – but another in the same boat had the baby die.  Well, the rumor has it that had the doctors – done the same with the first women, the baby would have lived.  Well, did she get the same doctor?

Why are anti-racists called cocksuckers?

Cause they gay LOL? No, actually, white supremacists. ironically – are incredibly obnoxious, cocksuckers – if you will! Well, at least, that’s the image of ones – outside the nerdy thinking ones (American Renaissance or something). Anyway, even the thinking white supremacists are heartless creeps – at the core.

At a College

Lots of South Park alt-right drones – so if you’re openly anti-racist – prepared to get called names.

Alt Left: Most Adults Have Mixed Feelings about the Opposite Sex

@Jason, responding to this post, says:

Jason: Are the guys saying this watching porn (hint: hypocrite – LOL!)?

Anyway, often the women have good reason to be angry because they’re with men with “no honor.” In other words, they cheat, they don’t do things on time – they just don’t act like “real men.”

Ha ha. Real men don’t cheat? I don’t think so. Cheating is normal for men. And the more masculine the man is, the more he’s going to do it.

You like manhating bitches? Ever dated one? Would you? Are you with one now? Ever even spoken to one? It’s easy to say that until you meet these women.

And most women have some normal anger or even hatred towards on those things @Jason mentioned. Even women who love men have a bit of hatred towards them about that stuff.

Other than a few young people who haven’t had enough life experience yet, few people purely love or hate the opposite sex. Most of us have complex feelings ranging from love (or something positive) to hate (or something negative) and everything in between. That’s not a problem. What’s important is the ratio of those feelings to the other feelings.

Casting Blacks on “The Andy Griffith Show”

https://journalisms.theroot.com/was-the-andy-griffith-show-postracial-1790884245

Some African Americans, they wrote, “might wonder how Mayberry came to exist as an all-white community and what this signaled about race relations in the quiet hamlet,” also noting that Griffith said he regretted the decision to exclude blacks from the regular cast. The actor explained that African Americans at the time did not want to be portrayed in servant roles and “there is no way in some small town in the South that white people were going to flock to a black doctor or lawyer.

It makes sense.   Well, a truly southern town would have a lot of blacks – minus ones in Appalachia.  Nonetheless, Mayberry is in Appalachia also I think (The Blue Ridge Mountains).
