2 posts ago I asked why the media is silent with avoiding blaming the Democrat Gov of California for the dam problem

Next day we get this.  If Trump is so great why doesn't he jump in and fix it ?   Suddenly the Leftist media is linking Trump to this mess years in the making:

****In a previous post on Suicidalism, I identified some of the most important of the Soviet Union’s memetic weapons. Here is that list again:

    There is no truth, only competing agendas.
    All Western (and especially American) claims to moral superiority over Communism/Fascism/Islam are vitiated by the West’s history of racism and colonialism.
    There are no objective standards by which we may judge one culture to be better than another. Anyone who claims that there are such standards is an evil oppressor.
    The prosperity of the West is built on ruthless exploitation of the Third World; therefore Westerners actually deserve to be impoverished and miserable.
    Crime is the fault of society, not the individual criminal. Poor criminals are entitled to what they take. Submitting to criminal predation is more virtuous than resisting it.
    The poor are victims. Criminals are victims. And only victims are virtuous. Therefore only the poor and criminals are virtuous. (Rich people can borrow some virtue by identifying with poor people and criminals.)
    For a virtuous person, violence and war are never justified. It is always better to be a victim than to fight, or even to defend oneself. But ‘oppressed’ people are allowed to use violence anyway; they are merely reflecting the evil of their oppressors.
    When confronted with terror, the only moral course for a Westerner is to apologize for past sins, understand the terrorist’s point of view, and make concessions.****

The ironic thing is the Left's new insistence that Russia is to be made a villain not because they believe the Soviet propaganda with hook line and sinker but because they are pissed off that Russians may have actually attempted to get hep their girl defeated.  And NOT because of the true nature of Russian propaganda which as per above article foments the anti American LEFT wing ideology.  Just the opposite of what they claim.

“We have at most a year to defend American democracy, perhaps less“

Is this not ass backwards?   We have had a President who for 8 yrs has done everything he could get away with to reduce American sovereignty working towards a borderless world expanding his own power when he can't have his way with the legislative branch packing the courts with pure liberal ideologues  and this lib is saying Trump is going to destroy American democracy when all he wants to do is further strengthen it !

I guess libs are worried gays may be outlawed, abortion will be outlawed, minorities put back in chains . 
And now we are suddenly  being advised of the rights of illegals and their freedoms!

And because Trump didn't mention "Jew" along with a comment about the  holocaust this is some giant insult that makes one think of similarities to Hitler?

"Mr. Dugin sees European Traditionalists as needing Russia, and Mr. Putin, to defend them from the onslaught of Western liberal democracy, individual liberty, and materialism — all Evolian bętes noires."

This is my beef. Broad labels such as traditionilism, liberalism, etc conflate things like materialism and individual liberty in a way which makes no sense.
If anyone can tell me that living in a progressive's  world is increasing my individual liberty I would vehemently disagree.

Having one central authority control the entire world and telling all 7 billion how they can and can't live and measuring everything about them from pre birth to post death and using data for armies of policy engineers, lawyers , technocrats, bureaucrats  micromanage in  ways THEY see fit is not liberty.  It is control.

and what does it mean materialism being associated with western liberal democracy?  Is stealing other's monies to bribe voters not materialism

Bottom line every thing does not fit neatly into categories ready for manipulation.

I remember sometime more than 30 yrs ago I took a nurse on a first date to a comedy show that looked like it would be fun in the Philadelphia burbs.

We went in and got seats near the back .   The comedian came on and started his routine.  The subject matter was extraordinarily vile and what for those days was way over the top.   He would humilate to the nth degree people in the first row or two.  All I could think of was thank God we were near the back.

Finally I looked at her and asked would you like to leave and she replied yes.  I explained how mortified I was and had no idea the show would be anything so degrading and disgusting.  She understood and w were fine

BTW the comedian was Andrew Dice Clay.  Before he made it big (for awhile).
185  Politics, Religion, Science, Culture and Humanities / Politics & Religion / Re: The war on the rule of law on: February 07, 2017, 09:33:38 AM
Bigdog,

Thanks for the very thought provoking posts.  

I listened to most of the tape.  Interesting and sharp discussions about  Yate's choices (if I understood it all correctly - it was late at night and I was exhausted)

She claimed as a matter of Stated Dept policy or law she should not or could not enforce Trump's executive order.
I think the speakers agreed she was wrong to claim that doing so on behalf of Stated Dept. legal grounds was wrong. For her to refuse to do so on some personal interpretation of  moral or idealistic grounds is reasonable.

She had every right to refuse for herself but should  not have invoked that she was doing so as representing the State Dept.

She had 2 choices.  one : resign  two : make a public statement (as she did) and refuse to carry out the orders.  

If she chose the former choice she could still make a public statement about what her reasons were.

If she chose the second choice she would have to know she would be fired.  So either way she had to know she was "falling on her sword" .

She appears to have thought that either choice was "equivalent" and for unclear reason (perhaps she "misread" or misinterpreted State Dept law is hypothesized as her assuming equivalence though not to my understanding the true motive is not known) chose to make a public statement and refuse on some false legal grounds .

This is all well and good.
Now Trump fires her and the NYT implies he impugns her character by calling her "weak" on immigration.    And the NYT claims that by doing so Trump or his representatives undermine their strong legal footing against her actions.

I assume the NYT would also like to claim impugning her character is "un Presidential".

I disagree with them on both points and hold their criticism is a veiled device  to politically undermine Trump.  I also feel that it is reasonable to state Yates IS weak on immigration by tying her refusal to enforce an executive order on immigration which is designed to protect American citizens  to refusing to participate with actions  the President deems are necessary to best protect American citizens.

Either way it is hard to fathom that her criticism and the way in which she decided to go public with a press conference was also not a somewhat veiled to effort to politically undermine her new boss.
Political showomanship was part of the equation.   It would be pushing the limits of credulity that she had not to at least some degree  coordinated with Democratic political  operatives.

Bottom line for me is I don't disagree with Trump's tweet.

(Of course I am just one more opinion and of course I have political biases too.)

ad hominem:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ad_hominem

If any one with a brain is to suppose that Yates was not being political and was in her mind trying to uphold some idealist principle will not convince most on the left.
If she refused to carry out executive orders she is weak on enforcement.

If her personal beliefs (political ) were not at the core of what she did then what was?  Soros giving her a check?

If this is all the NYslimes can come up with,  criticizing Trump not because he had every right to fire her but because he made a statement that she is weak on immigration then the socialist NY paper  is reduced to  desperately scraping from the bottom of the barrel anything they can to find a fault with Trump.

Women doctors do tend to pick fields with hours are more 9 to 5 I believe.   For many years they were far more likely to pick salaried jobs then go into an office on their own.  Though that trend has reversed for all doctors these days.

Perhaps they were paid less in groups of doctors or did not make partnership or perhaps in academia based on being female but other then that it HAS to be that they are working less hard, or less hours.

So when I see occasional stories that female doctors don't make as much and implying it is because they don't have a penis then I know it is it can't be true

Do these authors mean to tell me that women are singled out for lower payments from Medicare, Aetna, United Healthcare , Blue shield cross?

I remember once about 30 yrs ago standing on the side of a cruise ship with a cabin mate I met on the cruise.
He was from Arizona and of Mexican heritage.  Nice guy.  Owned a night club somewhere in Arizona

while standing at the rail side of the docked cruise ship in a Mexican city port of call we saw 3 Mexicans trying to get from one  side of a chain linked fence to the other side just below and in front of us.   They walked up to the fence and lifted up the bottom of it and then one by one they  scooted under it brushing along the pavement to get to other side.

What was very odd about the whole thing was was that there was a open walk way just about 10 feet away.  All they had to do was step a few feet over and walk through to the other side.
We were kind of standing there watching this and scratching our heads when my friend said ,

"typical stupid Mexicans"

I was surprised he said that being he was from Mexico himself and never forgot it .
