A Little Traveling Music

While Daedalus is going through decontamination and decompression from too many frequent forays into The Swamp, we’ll try and take up the slack.

Charles can’t stand to embed an anonymous poll from the reputable PollDaddy because he prefers to collect and control the data himself, so we thought we’d help him out a bit. Here’s a poll that is so easy you don’t have to log in to vote. As a matter of fact, we’ve voted on your behalf, and you’re welcome.

There’s little to report from The Swamp these days. The inanity continues with the meme that Obama is going to win by a landslide because Mitt Romney is going to outlaw The Constitution, declare war on everyone except for Utah, make homosexuality illegal, demand that abortions be performed with kerosene and coat hangers in the back alleys of Culver City, and kill all black people just for the hell of it. Good call, Chuck.

Here’s some trivia. While Charles is fighting troubles that keep swamping his servers (because he can’t keep from “fixing” LGF) guess what he was doing on 2 November 2008? The same damn thing.

    Again I say, let them celebrate their landslide victory between now and Tuesday. WOO-HOO, FOUR MORE YEARS OF FREE FONES! It’s all good. 🙂

    Just make sure everyone you know who isn’t a raving moonbat gets out to the polls on Tuesday. You might even volunteer to drive somebody. If it’s a moonbat, drive it to the ghetto and let it take a good look, before you drive it way out into the countryside and leave it stranded. Each one, teach one. 😈

        “Historic Storms of New England: : its gales, hurricanes, tornadoes, showers …
        By Sidney Perley

        IN the summer of 1635, the few English settlements scattered along the coast of New England were struggling to gain a foothold in the new world. Plymouth had indeed existed for fifteen years, but most of the villages had been founded only a few months, or a few years at the longest. On the Connecticut coast there was not a hamlet, and in the whole state in fact no settlement had been made, except at Wethersfield, on the Connecticut river. There, a few men had spent the preceding winter, their number having been increased this summer by some new colonists, who suffered for awhile with the others, and finally travelled across the wild country to Saybrook fort, the nearest place of refuge. Not another settlement could be found nearer than Plymouth, which was more than a hundred and fifty miles away, and separated therefrom by an unbroken wilderness inhabited only by Indians and wild animals. Following the coast of Massachusetts Bay, the next town beyond Plymouth was Scituate, then came Bear Cove (now Hingham) and Weymouth. The several settlements at or near the mouth of Charles river, most of them now being included in the city of Boston, came next. A short trip up the river, and a turn to the right through the woods brought Rev. Peter Bulkley and his small company to the site they had chosen for their new home,—this being the first colony that had penetrated the forest so far. In this summer of 1635 they marched into the woods and took possession of the clearing they had made, building for their shelter huts covered with bark and brushwood. Farther along the coast was Saugus (now Lynn), then came Salem, Ipswich and Newbury. At the mouth of the Piscataqua river stood Portsmouth, and up the stream was Dover. Nine miles from Portsmouth and also on the coast was York. With the exception ot these few, small, defenceless settlements in the clearings of the forest along Massachusetts Bay from Plymouth to York, and of Wethersfield, in Connecticut, the entire region now included in New England was the pathless, dangerous wilderness.
        The planting of the seed and the cultivation of the crops had been concluded, and some of the hay had been gathered and placed under cover for the support of the cattle during the coming winter. The whole of the second week of August the wind had blown from the direction of south-southwest with considerable force. At midnight of the fourteenth of the month its course was suddenly changed by way of the southeast to the northeast, and before daybreak a northeast rain storm was in progress. The wind had greatly increased in violence, blowing terrifically, and the rain fell in torrents, sometimes with such fury that the insecure houses of the settlers seemingly could not withstand its force. After the gale had continued five or six hours, the wind changed to the northwest, and the tumultuous elements gradually subsided.
        The wind caused the tide to rise to a height unknown before. At Boston it measured twenty feet, and was brought in twice in twelve hours. The Narragansett Indians were obliged to climb into the tops of trees to save themselves from the great tide in their region. Many of them failed to do so, and were swallowed up by the surging waters. Had the storm continued much longer the water would have submerged several of the settlements.
        An inconceivable number of trees were blown over or broken down, the stronger being torn up by the roots, and the tall pines and other brittle trees were broken in the middle. Slender young oaks and goodsized walnuts were twisted like withes, and Indian corn, the main dependence of the colonists, was beaten down and much of it destroyed, while it was hardly in the milk.
        Some houses were blown over, and the roofs of several were torn off. At the plantation of Manoment at Plymouth, the wind took off the roof of a house and carried it to another place.”

    Hence the original usage of the slogan, later popularized by such racist rabble-rousers as Malcolm X: “We didn’t land on Plymouth Rock — Plymouth Rock landed on us!” It was a crazy storm.

    Which reminds me, Mayor “AGW Is REAL!” Bloomberg cancelled the New York City Marathon that was scheduled for this weekend, ignoring my advice to simply make it a triathlon, taking advantage of the new watercourse. Now the runners will have no normalcy, and no distraction from the chaos. They will fall into looting, and some will die at the hands of vigilantes clinging to their guns, religion and bitterness.

  5. JimboXL says:

    Funny poll. I have to imagine a lot of polls are like this, people see Romney and vote and it was really an anti Romney question. That’s why it is hard for me to put much trust in all the various polls, other than maybe the general direction. I was thinking they had Walker being beaten in the recall, but obviously those were way off. Nor did they capture the epic wave of 2010.

    Again if this election was legit it would be a Romney win 99.9%. This admin has many secrets you can bet they don’t want uncovered, so I doubt they are going to go away easily. It’s all going to be turnout to overcome fraud. I just can’t see a legit turnout for Obama because he has the worst economic numbers in a long long time and many failures chipping away. I cannot for the life of me see anyone but the God booer radicals being enthusiastic enough to bother voting for him.

    Bush got re-elected amid the zenith of leftist rage and hatred and a media pile-on, however with Bush, the economy was light years ahead of this one, he was still a like able candidate, and John Kerry was the worst candidate in the history of Presidential elections, bar none.

    Guess we’ll see how it all goes. You do have to double, no triple your voting machine touchscreen and raise heck if they pull that auto select crud.

      Romney is getting 65% of the white male vote. I’m a proud member of the 35%, and ashamed of my demographic.

      • JimboXL says:

        Obama publicly abandoned the white male voter a while ago, but which demo was it that helped to elect him in the first place? The white male voter.

        Whites have been demonized by black racists and rabid pasty bright blinding white rats like Chris Whitey Whitington III Matthews. They act like Obama was elected entirely by minorities.

        Jay Z said it, he’s voting for Obama because he is black, and honestly what else could he say, Obama has nothing that anyone would highlight positively. He’d done nothing but triple the debt and the economy is dead in the water as we saw by unemployment sham number going up AGAIN.

        Hopefully reality and sanity will win Tuesday. The economy will be dead in the water so long as we have leaders like Obama and dope Americans that believe them when they make believe that tripling the debt means you are reducing the debt.

      • JimboXL says:

        We’ll need a second recovery to recover from Obama’s first recovery.

    LGF denizens would write in Lady Gaga if Charles told them to. They certainly have no strong convictions about anything or they wouldn’t still be on LGF sucking up to a b-list jazz/fusion guitarist who peaked in 1983 while wearing an orange jumpsuit. There’s no peaking today. Only piqued pissyness and pointing (at evil entities such as Pam Geller’s ginormous…..posts. Plus she has big round…… eyes).

    And yeah that goes for you too Mustafa troll with the phat unheated crib who wastes Earth’s precious resources uncreatively taunting us on your energy sucking computer that is unnecessary and probably resulting in some Third World deprivation somewhere. You must be in Big Oil’s pocket or maybe just Chunk’s suckah. Hey do you pay him 10 dollars EACH MONTH to eschew the ads? So you can stay online longer, read more pithy (NOT) posts, and suck up more fossil fuels? What a hypocrite! 🙂 But if not, why not Chunk wants to fucking know what’s your problem????

    Mahatma Ghandi drank his own piss. Now THAT’s frugal, efficient, cost effective, ecological and did you know you can store that stuff in Mountain Dew bottles and not even have to get up from reading Chunks latest pearls of wisdom?

      Little Musty is just some white pimple faced fat kid trying to play “badass” by acting out a ridiculous, cartoonish negative stereotype of “a scary black muslim man”.

      The hilarious part is that he’d get his ass kicked if he did his, as Spike Lee would say “coonin’ and buffoonin'” routine in front of an actual black muslim.

      However, he’s too much of a chickenshit to actually try it so instead he’ll just do it from the safety of his phat crib mommy’s basement between Chunky’s mammoth ass cheeks.

      Which brings up an important question.

      Does Chunky have a wireless router stuck up his ass for Musty’s use or does he have to run a cable or phone line up in there? 😆

  8. dwells38 says:

    The latest post at LGF has to do with an incident at a Romney rally whereby a “protester” (actually just a disrupting idiot) shouted “ What about climate change? That’s what causes monster storms”. This was met with chants of “USA, USA, USA”. And Charles found this “appalling” and cited this as the very reason he parted with the loony left.

    OH WAIT! He cited this as the reason why he parted with the RIGHT!

    So let’s dissect this. Pretty much everyone who’s followed the AGW and now Climate Change controversy knows that there’s a debate over whether actual warming is occurring, whether it’s anthropogenic (caused by humans) and whether or not we’re seeing any effects caused by said alleged warming today. And pretty much everyone knows that Algore tried to assert in his .ppt presentation entitled ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ that this latter, completely unsupported and most tenuous assertion is actually true and caused the Katrina hurricane. And anyone with a computer who follows these things knows that real climatologists were uncomfortable with that assertion (because it’s unsupported by any evidence) and when it was further promoted in the movie of same title they became mortified that this would undermine the entire AGW argument because there is NO CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE to date that AGW, if true (also not conclusively demonstrated) causes any extreme weather events and if it did, which ones??

    Back to Chunk. Remember his whole argument for branding we skeptics as anti-science knuckle draggers and/or shill socks for Big Oil was there was scientific consensus for AGW and therefore it was TWOO, ALL TWOO. Yet he has no standard for this hyperbolic assertion and yet cites it as yet another reason to damn the right as crazy and unreasonable. Once again this just points to the obvious fact that Charles Johnson is a tool, a useful idiot to socialist and left wing operatives, a hypocrite and an extremely lazy thinker and his website is devoid of facts or critical thinking. Lastly he’s on board with an egregious hypocrite, Algore who rapes the environment in broad daylight while insisting policies be instituted to force the rest of us to pay more for energy, scale back our already moderate intake and toil away with recycling efforts while he pays servants to take care of such menial tasks for him and luxuriates in multiple mansions, energy sucking vehicles and electronics and other Earth killing or third world depriving unnecessary trinkets/toys of rich, fat white men.

    Hey wasn’t Chunk bragging a while back about multiple 30 inch monitors? I mean isn’t blogging itself encouraging people to log on and obsessively and unnecessarily consume energy just to read a few words from unremarkable writers and/or like minded commenters on said writers? Wouldn’t real environmentalists be practicing what they preach instead of wasting precious energy to promote unsubstantiated claims and bash innocent people, rallying their own candidates innocently and without harming anyone else for not embracing them? Just sayin’.

    • Pakimon says:

      My take on the whole “global warming” thing is that yes, man is contributing to “climate change”.

      However, it is in such an infinitesimal way that it doesn’t matter in the “big picture”.

      It’s like saying someone is raising the water level in a swimming pool by peeing in it.

      As far as Chunky goes, he wishes he is a tool and a useful idiot to socialist and left wing operatives.

      In actuality, he’s become just another moonbat in a sea of moonbats, his honking and squealing indistinguishable amongst all the other honkings and squealingsgenerated by The Loony Left.

      He’s a non-entity, not worthy of notice except by a select few who make sport of mocking and taunting him.

    “What have we learned from the failure of socialism?” So asked Margaret Thatcher, back in ’77. Apparently, we learned very little. Let’s go back and study up a bit.

    http://pjmedia.com/eddriscoll/2012/08/29/and-now-a-few-words-from-margaret-thatcher-on-the-failure-of-obamanomics/

    Excerpt:

    I think you’ve got to recognize at the outset that broadly speaking there are two ways in which any government can proceed. One is a way based on what you and I would call a free society, which is enshrined right to the heart of the American constitution. The other one is a way which allows only one view both of economics and politics and in which almost everything is either owned or controlled by the state including the media, including the ideas, including freedom of discussion, and everything. There is no freedom of discussion. Now between those two ways–the free society and the totally controlled society–there are, of course, variations. I think what we’ve learned in Britain is that we’ve gradually over the last certainly 12 or 13 years with perhaps a little interruption gone further and further away from the free society towards something else. At the same time we’ve found–I don’t find it strange, but some other people do–that we have stopped creating wealth. We’ve had a large number of increasing restrictions, and we’ve been finding two things. First, that we are more and more concentrating on redistributing the wealth we’ve got, rather than creating any more. To create more you need a slightly freer society, and you need an incentive society. Naturally when I see that happening I look with very great alarm to societies which have gone even further left. That is, they’ve tried to redistribute even more and haven’t had the incentives for people working hard on their own account, doing well for their families, and often then being able to create jobs for others. They’ve produced a much more prosperous society than we have. But by and large you’ve got the two broad different economic and political approaches.

    Like, the NYT is some stodgy old conservative paper, uninterested in promoting any scrap of bullshit that helps support the re-election of this unmitigated failure of an empty-suit. 🙄

    George Thorogood and The Destroyers
    2120 South Michigan Ave
    Released: 12 July 2011
    Label: Capitol
    Format: MP3@320
    Total Time: 00:45:56

    George Thorogood & the Destroyers have never made their debt to Chess Records a secret, so an album-length tribute to the home of Muddy Waters, Howlin’ Wolf, Willie Dixon, Chuck Berry, and Bo Diddley is a logical move for the rough and tumble blues-rockers. This is so firmly within Thorogood’s wheelhouse that 2120 South Michigan Ave — its name saluting the Chicago address of Chess Studios and the Rolling Stones instrumental saluting the hallowed location, the Stones’ song turning a young Thorogood on to the wonders of Chicago blues — feels like it could have been recorded at any stage in his career. Only the odd instance of Auto-Tune — and it is truly odd on an otherwise rocking version of “High Heel Sneakers” graced by a cameo by Buddy Guy — marks this album as a 2011 release, and that’s a good thing: the Destroyers are always best when they stick to the basics which these ten Chess covers, two newly written tributes, and Stones’ cover are. Thorogood’s specialty has never been subtlety, so barreling through these tunes at a breakneck pace is par for the course, but what makes the record work is the group’s palpable love for the material, and producer Tom Hambridge’s willingness to leave some grit in the grooves, an inclination that largely mitigates his temptation to occasionally dabble with an Auto-Tune that is entirely unnecessary for music this simple and raw. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine

    Again, I feel the need to clarify – the attack may not have emerged from a protest over the anti-Islamic video, but the attackers themselves said that the anti-Islamic video was the reason for the attack. They bragged about it. And they have no reason to lie.

    The right is frantically trying to confuse this issue. But it’s simple:

    The attack did not take place at the same time as a protest over the anti-Islamic video, but it was motivated by the video.

    What an ignorant, petulant fuck.
    Charlie, ‘the attackers themselves’ said they didn’t know about any video. The admin fucked up, lied, people died and they are now caught in the cover-up. The CIA ‘timeline’ is falling apart.
    Go chase some imaginary nazis. You’re good at that.
