      So, they released the lineup today for the Flagstaff Blues & Brews festival. I knew that Samantha Fish was going to be there, because I saw it on her website. Imagine my surprise to see Larkin Poe on the roster, as well 🙂

      Tickets went on sale today. I got VIP passes

      Holy crap I’m getting a figurative headache. My SIL is doing her online Sociology course now and it’s almost physically painful to listen to the absolute garbage they are teaching. Todays gem is Relative Deprivation Theory. Apparently, my definition won’t work. “The way leftists control the populace by convincing them that they are worse off than they are.”

      Too damn much, but it’s a requirement now for her degree. They had no options for any of the other “soft” sciences. She has to take psych 101 too, but from experience I can say it’s not nearly as bad as sociology. (In my school I dropped out of the sociology class and picked a different class).

      I liked my soc class. My prof explained the cultural context and the personal lives of the people who had advanced a particular line of thought (e.g., Weber), so it was a cultural history/biography class, too. It was where I got my first real exposure to Marxism, too. Didn’t know Marx was a German wastrel living off some Brit sucker.

      Sociology serves no purpose. There is nothing you can learn there that ins’t covered in Cultural Anthropology. It has been redesigned to be leftist cultural brainwashing and nothing else. It needs replaced with Civics. (Which has been eliminated from most High Schools and colleges).

      There’s an interesting theory going around. Dan Bongino says he had the photo in Oct 2018 but couldn’t verify it. Why did it come out now and from who?

      The guess is Planned Parenthood, who has given Northam millions. He literally blew up Kathy Tran’s bill – that was written by Planned Parenthood – and became political poison. They need someone they can own. Justin Fairfax, our Lt. Gov, was some sort of director at the Virginia affiliate of PP, so he’s theirs. Ergo, destroy Northam, move Fairfax in and ‘move on’.

      Rams are undecided if they will go to the White House if they win the Super Bowl.
      I really doubt if they will have to make that decision. Also they are only in the game on a fluke.
      If they get more ridiculous non-calls in their favor and sneak past the Pats Trump should not offer an invitation.
      At least I have a rooting interest now.

      Well, technically an Austrian. He father was a member of the Austrian nobility until his title, land and deeds were stripped from him because he married a Jewish woman. Karl was nothing more than a putrid spoiled asshole bent on destroying the system the refused to allow him to claim his nobility title. Once you understand this, everything about Marxism, Marxist Socialism makes perfect sense.

      Consider it from this perspective. When a shithole from San Franscicko has to apologize for banning Trump MAGA hats, it means even here in California Trump is way more popular than the media will admit.

      Whats not to be clear about? If the majority of his patrons had agreed with him, he would never have retracted his statement. The excuse about his employees is exactly that, a piss poor excuse. The guy is a brain dead liberal Marxist propaganda kool-aid drinker who was mugged by reality. He believed the media bullshit that California, San Fransicko to be even more specific was mostly anti Trump. He made his asinine statement, and reality checked his ass so hard it was like getting prison raped.

      If San Francisco is so great, why is everyone I love leaving?

      We are witnessing two migrations: One is a continuation of the California dream. The other no one talks about, though it affects nearly everyone I know.

      I’m driving down the 101 toward San Francisco International Airport. A gray blanket of fog pours over the hills in the distance, smothering what would be a luminous California sunset. Eleanor is sitting next to me in the passenger seat taking deep breaths. She does not like to fly.

      I hesitate, then finally ask what’s on her mind, cutting the air between us. “I don’t want to put any pressure on you, but since this is the last time we’ll be hanging out for a while, I feel like we have drifted apart over the last year. Is there something I did wrong? Is there something you want to tell me? You know, before you leave?”

      We are driving to her one-way flight bound for Pittsburgh. She’s moving out of the San Francisco Bay Area, where we have both lived since we were kids. Our parents, who were themselves mixed transplants from New England and other parts of California, settled in the Bay in the ’70s and ’90s. Eleanor and I met in high school—two weirdos who recognized each other’s outsider-looking-in approach to the world. Now on the cusp of 30, we have 16 years of friendship between us. We did a podcast together. She went to work with me the day after my father died. We have gotten lost in the desert together, twice (before smartphones). On separate occasions, we have cleaned up each other’s vomit. We were once referred to as “hetero life mates.” And today she is leaving.

      There are other friends out in Pittsburgh who have made a calm life as artists, cooks, house-cleaners, and creatives: an impossibility in the Bay Area, unless you have family assistance. Eleanor visited them a few months ago, and, charmed by their stability, the brick-paved streets, and the affordable apartments that lined them, it became impossible for her not to see how well she could do there too. Among other talents, she is, first and foremost, an artist.

      I’m not.

      I’m telling her “I feel like we’ve drifted apart.” What I really want to say is “What could I have done to make you stay?”

      “There’s nothing, really,” she says, “I mean, the political climate has been hard. But also it’s just the Bay. Inviting people out to Stinson is easy; getting people to visit me when I have nowhere to host them is harder.”

      Several months ago, she had made the difficult decision to move back onto a small corner of her parents beach-town property, after her urban East Bay house became waterlogged during the rainstorms of 2016. We had to move her out over a weekend, after the mold took half the furniture and gave her roommate pneumonia in both lungs. I touched swollen blisters of stagnant rainwater pulsing on her walls. After emailing the landlord about the issues, the housemates abandoned the property. He then successfully sued them in accordance with California tenant laws.

      Although moving back to your parents’ home is never ideal, Eleanor didn’t have a lot of other options. But Stinson was not the little village she had left behind for college.

      While only accessible by a narrow 10-mile strip of road lined by falling rocks and perilous sea cliffs, Stinson Beach is nevertheless one of the most popular day trips for San Francisco urbanites. Once a salty refuge for dendrophilic introverts and quiet hippies of means, Stinson spent the last few years transforming into a seaside “simpler times” theme park for San Francisco’s stratospherically wealthy. Eleanor had watched her foggy hometown gorge with tourists in $300 jeans on a mission for an idyllic, sand-weathered NorCal experience.

      But hating rich tourists simply for flooding the place with money is not the reason Eleanor is leaving the Bay.

      She was a manager at an artisanal goods boutique, which directly served this crowd of fast-culture beneficiaries hungry for slow-culture products. She is also the child of interracial parents, who built their own house in Stinson when she was little more than a baby. The town was essentially her cocoon for over 15 years. As an adult, she quickly got hired at the boutique because, to quote Eleanor, “the owners know the signs of a townie who has returned with swallowed pride and no prospects.” But the tourists did not know these signs. The new deal for living in Stinson—her hometown—was getting used to hearing “Where are you from? Here? No way!” repeatedly from rich white people, who didn’t know how to fit a brown girl in their vision of an authentic seaside experience.

      She would then go home to an in-law unit, while those people retired to one of the many lavish Airbnbs that have popped up over the last decade. “Imagine working at Disneyland, then going home to your place in the back of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride while drunk frat grads puke into the water,” she told me.

      To be clear, she loved her town and its bearing in the coastal California fantasy. She wanted to share it, brag about it, celebrate it. But selling bourgeoise yogurt crocks and $100 bottles of wine to people who didn’t see her as part of their shabby-chic fantasy was becoming difficult to bear. She was also onboarding other displaced “village kids” who were doing exactly what she was doing: moving back home, into their parents’ offices, in-law units, and backyards. Having only kind words and a dead-end service job to offer them was making her grow thorns.

      She was unhappy. The boutique was becoming a psychological warfare zone. She had tried her hand doing sales at a startup, but the work was soul-fraying. Art made her happy, and she was genuinely talented, but working at a couture costume shop and an internationally acclaimed ceramics studio wasn’t enough to pay the bills. She couldn’t afford to move.

      The muse was not only dead—it couldn’t afford the resuscitation fee.

      Damn, weird night. Woke up early this morning with a full body allergic reaction. Itching and bumps everywhere. My left cheek is swollen, and still is. Zyrtec cleared up the allergic reaction in about an hour. Cheek swelling is going down but still strange. I think it may have something to do with the shave and haircut I got yesterday but not sure what the hell happened.

      I tried that stuff at a local home improvement show after I screwed up my knees. Didn’t have any effect on me. I suppose if I had done more than one over time it might have helped, but they were promising all kinds of miracles with the single dose and it didn’t pan out.

      Report: Democrats’ 2019 DHS Spending Bill Opens the Border to Migrants

      The House Democrats’ proposed 2019 homeland security budget reopens the nation’s southern border to migrant inflows, while it also dangles the promise of cheap labor in front of GOP legislators and donors.

      The draft budget adds $1.75 billion in extra border spending to President Donald Trump’s $58.7 billion budget request for the Department of Homeland security in 2019, according to a copy published by the Washington Post.

      But Democrats’ draft bill does not include any funding for the wall, and it uses the extra money to help migrants bypass border protections and then win jobs in the U.S. labor market.

      Judging by the draft bill, “the Democrats want to limit the government’s ability to keep people out of the country,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. In the Democrats’ provisions become law, he said, adding that “enforcement would be weakened and people abroad would every quickly learn of that, and then illegal immigration would dramatically increase, especially of people with children.”

      Any flood of new migrants will force down wages for Americans, raise profits for donors, and will pressure some Americans to seek welfare from the government. In 2017, under rules set by former President Barack Obama and Congress, roughly 400,000 migrants got work permits to compete against Americans for jobs.

      The Democrats’ bill does not include any money for fences or walls, and it bars officials from setting barriers in major migrant pathways across the border:

      [The bill] prohibits the use of funds from this and prior year Acts to construct physical barriers, as follows: Within or north of the Santa Ana Wildlife Refuge; Within or north of the Bentsen-Rio Grande Valley State Park; Within or north of La Lomita Historical Park; Within, south of, or north of the National Butterfly Center; or Within, north of, or east of the Vista del Mar Ranch tract of the Lower Rio Grande Valley National Wildlife Refuge.

      The bill blocks Trump’s rules which deny asylum to migrants who say they are afraid of gangs or domestic violence. It commits the DHS to end the detention of migrants who bring children to the border even though many migrants openly tell reporters that they bring children to trigger Obama’s catch and release rules. The bill also cuts funding needed to keep migrants in detention until their legal claims are resolved, and it spends at least $75 million to encourage the catch-and-release of migrants.

      The bill allocates $502 million for “humanitarian concerns” to welcome and aid migrants as they push their way through the border.

      It also reopens Obama’s pipeline for relaying Central American “UAC” youths from the cartels’ coyotes at the border up to their parents and relatives who are living illegally in the United States while cutting ICE personnel levels and enforcement operations.

      hunh. I knew he had Jewish antecedents, I didn’t know THAT part. I’m still not clear about what caused that restaurant owner to pull a 180. He made it sound like his staff was pissed at him for not consulting them first and that may be part of it, but it sounds iffy

      I think he was just muddying the waters by bringing in side issues that may or may not be even true and that were irrelevant regarding the initial outburst.

      Frankly I’m gagging to see the menu at the White House when the Covington kids get to visit.

      NEVER admit something and even worse apologise for it … and then change your mind and say that it’s NOT TRUE.

      The immediate question is WHY DID YOU LIE?

      Either in the first place of subsequently when one’s arse was feeling the heat of the blowtorches.

      HEH

      It’s what he does. To say that it was the culture here in Virginia back in 1984 is just risible. What would be truly karmic, given the campaign he ran against Gillespie, would be if it really isn’t him in the picture.

      It appears that the dems and Nancy really think that Trump caved to them and will now do whatever they want just like previous Republican presidents. I don’t think it’s going to work out that way.

      /at least I hope not. If it does, I will be very disappointed.

      Meh… Both of their parental units infested California from “New England”. Economic locust. They go where the money is, and destroy that place with their Marxist Socialist values. Rinse and repeat. Not California’s fault.
