I was reading through the history of the slymepit from about 4 years ago and it was like night and day how different it was. There were a lot more people posting many of which had intelligent things to say. There were a few insults thrown around but it wasn't anything like the kind of constant insults and spamming shit like it is now.
As you might point out, I am posting nasty shit lately that is exactly whqat is wrong with the slymepit. I am sick of some stupid shit that thinks they are really smart and always right that posts childish insults and gross shit. Over and over again. I might as well spoil this place for the dumbshits that have spoiled it for me. I apologize to the innocent parties that I offend.
I'm not going name names, but I have had more than a few PMs from reasonable people that used to post here that had had enough abuse and moved on because of the very behavior I pointed out. It's little wonder that the posting base has shrunk here.

Haha - ftp.

I really think you don't understand anything about me.

I am talking a lot of shit on this page. I am mostly just fucking with you when it comes to ass sucking and such. I am just talking shit. You do make me laugh when you take it so seriously. It is like you think I mean it. Haha. I am probably being mean when I do this... but I continue because you make me laugh with your over-reaction. Don't you have anyone in your life that has fun fucking with you... razzing you? I disagree with your politics as well, but I really don't think about you sucking my ass... it is just a crude joke... and you fall for it every time. haha. I get you upset and it makes me laugh... probably not a good characteristic on my part.

I asked you to post something funny... anything funny... really. What you posted was a bunch of stupid shit about what you think about my life. It was lame and stupid. You did not hurt my feelings. You just continued to confirm that you are an entirely non-funny person... just like my friend.

I have several friends in my life that would almost die for me... and I for them. It is an amazing blessing. Perhaps it does not always come across here on the pit... but I think I am one of the luckiest people on earth. I do have some problems however. My oldest daughter is struggling with mental disease. My wife is dying of cancer (she probably has about two years to live). But still... what an amazing life I have. Great people in my life... even the non-funny woman who comes to every party I have and always brings brownies. She always brings something. She always comes. She is my friend.

I posted abusive shit. I thought it was funny because it probably bothered you when it you said it didn't Ha ha. You post stupid, insulting shit about me that you think is funny why not? Ha ha.

You invoked "more than a few PMs from reasonable people that used to post here that had had enough abuse and moved on" and "a lot more people posting many of which had intelligent things to say. ...wasn't anything like the kind of constant insults and spamming shit like it is now."

As If you were on the side of reason & intelligence, restraint & class. As if that decorated your spite in virtue.

==

What's going on with you personally right now? Are you on a drinking bender? (I'm not saying you are, I'm asking.) Are you having health problems? Are you taking-personally the ends-in-a-whimper January 6 Committee Hearings, which you so-avidly posted? Does the countdown to the midterm election feel like suffocation for your side?

==

As I researched that "threat" of stabbing a "commie (like ftp)", the trip back-in-time gave me perspective, which I found heartening: The day-before you took-the-side of that struggle session mob accosting people in restaurants-- John D. posted a happy picture-- giving-away his attractive daughter in marriage. I didn't mention my own posts during that kerfuffle: I had re-discovered a beloved sci-fi minis wargame from my childhood. And, looking back, I refreshed my memory of the Jacob Blake shooting & Kenosha riots... by watching clips of Joe Biden calling & praising the rapist criminal. And Kamala Harris saying the police should be put on trial for abuse of power and attempted murder. I was relieved that those incriminating clips hadn't been censored by the Big Tech memory hole. Kamala said some cuh-razy shit on the Today show: https://www.today.com/video/kamala-harr ... 0781253529

I mention all-this because I suppose the rosy perspective I gained by looking-back... might be equally-and-oppositely hopeless, from your point-of-view. If so, that might explain why you are acting-out.

If you act around people like the toxic runt you are here I doubt you have any friends...
you so-thoroughly missed the mark-- directing those insults at John.

You shoulda tried-them on me! Have you ever been made-to-feel... or directly told!... that you weren't really welcome/ you were just being tolerated/ the community wishes you would leave, so the better-than-you real & worthy friends would be better-off without-you? I have! I'm not just talking about Lsuoma urging everyone to Ignore me. I'm talking about my real life. Times when I seemed On Top Of The World, socially. And then lost it all, in a social hierarchy ouster. Once was when my 90's band was on the threshold of a major label contract-- and I was eliminated so the pie would be shared fewer-ways. Later-- a bunch of gay nightclub party-stars kicked me out of their social scene-- for obscure reasons... but a big-one was that they were becoming miserable AIDS-infected meth-addicts... and a happy healthy normal guy in a straight marriage... was an unwelcome benchmark. Then, eventually, when my ex left-me... she had enthusiastic support from a bunch of unmarried childless 'modern woman' friends... who resented me for similar reasons. I'm not just saying I was awesome & they sucked! I'm certain, despite trying to be humble, I wasn't a graceful 'winner' at life. I thought I had All The Answers & They Didn't... so they sure showed me!

So, unlike John, maybe your words woulda stung me.

Being ostracized & marginalized sucks. Whether you consciously know it or-not, that's why you tried to make John feel shunned. I can't figure-out what prompted your resurrection of the "stabbing commies (like ftp)" comment from 2020. Unless you were attempting to get John banned for a 'threat'. (someone-else tried that against me here, a while back. Their accusation was as-pathetic as yours.) If you flounce, I'll assume it was largely in-shame, because you know this isn't your finest hour. But... for what it's worth... the rest of us probably judge you less-harshly than your own niggling shame might.

Thanks for your concern.
I have been a little crankier than usual because of a barking dog that was waking me up and fucking with my sleep.
I dealt with it . The dog owner apologized and will take measures to deal with the problem. Instead of saying I was being too sensitive about the nuisance he owned to the problem. I might be in a better mood tomorrow if I get a good sleep.
I still won't any shit from John Doormat. I don't like taking abuse from losers.

This is the RealClearPolitics table of "Recent Changes" in House Races: districts where polling has shifted for-or-against the (D) or (R)...




At-first I read the table from top-to-bottom. All the shifts were AWAY from (D) & TOWARD (R), until the Green Dotted Line (added by me).
Below the line, the shifts all went in the opposite direction: AWAY from (R) & TOWARD (D).

I thought they RealClearPolitics simply listed all the Rightward shifts first, then all the Leftward shifts. But no... the table is Chronological: most-recent-first.

So ALL the most-recent shifts are in-favor of the (R). ALL the shifts toward (D) are obsolete old-news.

I also realized that RealClearPolitics had color-coded the names of the districts incorrectly. The names are all *red*. Which-- according to RCP's coding system-- is supposed-to indicate the party-affiliation of the Incumbent currently in office. But those districts aren't all (R).

The pit has definitely changed over the years. What brought us together was a shared hatred for the way atheist groups where bring managed. When I joined here I just started to have my complete abandonment of atheist groups. I had been a member of most of them... AA, AHA, FFRF, CFI. I was active in some of them. But things started changing. All these groups started to turn toward identitarianism and socialism. There was elevator-gate along with groups accusing men of being mysogynistic for no reason. You could not criticize these groups without being unfairly labeled as sexist or racist or some other kind of ist.

So, basically, what has changed is that the poison that affected these atheist groups has spread far and wide. It is everywhere... public schools and medical professionals and universities and employers. What's a fella to do?

We still bitch and post about this kind of shit here on the pit. But I think we don't have the shared focus like we did years ago. It makes sense that some old pitters are not so interested in this place now.

As far as rude speech... well... just look up my record. I have been rude here since day one. I don't think I have really changed. There are just different people who are fun to fuck with now.

On another topic - Didn't someone promote "modern momentary theory" here? Haha. That was pretty stupid! Are we all enjoying the 8 to 9% inflation. Oh yes! Print that fucking money bitches. Who was the fucking idiot that promoted MMT. Maybe we should chat.

Has anyone watched Rings of Power? I was a Tolkien nerd as a teen and loved the Peter Jackson movies but can't muster even the slightest interest.

Rumor has it that the showrunner for Amazon's true-to-the-source-material Conan series fell victim to DEI initiatives, the series getting cancelled, prior to going on to head up their direct competition with House of the Dragon. Haven't seen that either, but I hear very good things.

I have been a big LOTR fan since 1978 when I first read it. I was a Junior in High School at the time. Simultaeously my group of friends bought a copy of this really weird game called "Dungeons and Dragons". The game had these things called "characters" and they were based on LOTR races. WOW! Mind blown. My good friend Ken found the things called "miniatures". We bought tons of these by mail. There was a miniatures company called "Fantastiques" that had knock off 25mm scale minis for LOTR. They used names that were not copyright protected... haha.. like halflings instead of Hobbits. God... they were so fucking cool.

And so, my little group of six friends were the only ones in our high school or 1500 students to play D&D. Haha. We played every fucking day over summer break... EVERY DAY. Man... did we have fun.

I have read LOTR four times. I have read it twice with my wife every night before bed. What a great time we had. We, of course, watched the Bakshi cartoon and it was pretty bad. I do have an original animation cell of Gandalf from this movie. It is hanging on my wall in the hallway. Then Steve Jackson made the modern movie. It was very satisfying. It is not perfect... but it is about as close as any movie could get. My wife and I have watched this a dozen times. One Xmas break we watched all three director's cut movies in one day... haha.

But, the Hobbit movie killed me. God... bad effects... no sensible plot... stupid dwarves. God. Almost unwatchable to me. It is not that I am a total LOTR geek, but the Hobbit is just a sad piece of shit.

I cannot bring myself to even try to view "Rings of Power". I would rather just read the Hobbit again than submit my brain to this bunch of shit movie.

I loved the Rankin/Bass animated Hobbit movie when I was a kid, before I even knew about the books. There's probably a good 2 hour movie hiding in the Jackson trilogy if someone were to edit it down.

I have endured the entire first season of "Rings Of Power" and can confirm it's Tolkien in name only. To say the writers paid lip-service to the source material is understatement of the century. It's a shoddy, badly written fan-fic full of invented characters, new plot-points, incredibly inconsistent costumes and sets (there are "chainmail" tunics that are clearly t-shirts with the links printed upon them, badly fitting plastic breastplates and stupid looking mu-mu robes everywhere) and the entire thing is infused with retarded "girl power" shite.

However, the worst thing about this travesty of a show, the crowning turd upon the mound of offensive feculent gibberish, is the way the "writers" have ridden rough-shod over the established lore of the books. Nothing is sacred, no character is safe, the timeline is fluid, places are notional, events are up-for-grabs and the entire thing, when viewed as a whole, feels like a revenge job against Tolkien and his works.

I hate this show more than I hate feminists, theists, paedophiles, animal abusers and Jamiroquai (Grrrrr!). In fact, I think the only thing I hate more than this show is a feminist-muslim raping an underage goat whilst wearing a Jamiroquai t-shirt.

When I'm Colonel-in-chief of the Galactic Empire (soon, very soon!) everyone involved with this show will be hauled before me, judged on-the-spot (no legal defence) and sentenced to death-by-clown-rape.

Cunts.

CUNTS!

Right, my fucking blood is up, I'm going to throw bricks at the moon.

Addendum - "House Of The Dragon" is a decent show. Not amazing but absolutely worth a watch.

I recently listened to 'The Broken Sword' and 'Three Hearts and Three Lions' both by Poul Anderson and both available at no extra cost on Audible.

That scratched my fantasy itch (so to speak)...though now I'm looking for something else in the same vein.


Though of course other British(ish) fantasy is available...

Explain how printing a trillion dollars that didn't exist before, then doling it out in exchange for not doing or producing anything, doesn't cause inflation.

Also, how come inflation is still going strong a year after you said it would only last three months tops?

but also

7. Killing the Keystone XL pipeline & drilling permits... so we are dependent on endlessly-price-inflating Saudi oil.

and

4. Cost Of Doing Business:when mobs smash businesses-- unpunished, shoplifting is legalized, Woke HR Departments put incompetents in-charge, psychotic criminals. The BLM/Antifa effect on urban life: Less people going-out & spending $... means higher prices to make-up for the loss.

3. California banning over-the-road trucks for 'climate' reasons.

2. A special-interest-driven war on the 'gig' economy, such as independent Uber drivers & freelance journalists.

6. 'Sanctions' on Russia which incentivized abandonment of the USD as global currency, in favor of Russia-China-India-Turkey-Syria-OPEC...

8. $519 Billion Student Loan Giveaway

7. The $700 billion Inflation Reduction Act

11. Covid Lockdowns killed small businesses. Rampant PPP Fraud + rampant Unemployment Benefits Fraud.

9. Firing experienced workers-- from first-responders to factory workers to expensively-trained military-- for their refusal to take the jab.

10. Putting Buttigieg in-charge of Transportation & Ports, then letting Buttigieg take paternity leave. Meanwhile all the other McKinsey consulting cunts

12. Insane mis-allocation of spending, such as no-return we get for $$$ sent to Ukraine.

15. Exploding pipelines

14. Teachers unions getting paid to Not Educate Kids.

13. Plain old stupidity. It's expensive.

:lol: This is fuckin' hilarious. All the OTHER THINGS the Incumbent Regime did-wrong... used as excuses to avoid blaming MMT. :lol:

===

One thing which keeps me coming-back to the 'pyt is the MYSTERY of pitters whose motives & thought-process I can't comprehend.

Steersman was like that for a long time-- but he talked about being 74 years old & taking care of an ex after knee-surgery-- and other humanizing personal details, give at-least some vague outline of what sort of person he might-be.

In the case of Lsuoma... his fascinating early life gives me no clues why he has become such a willful know-nothing.

But since he talked about working for Oracle & Amazon... I now fill-in-the-blanks with one of those Pacific Northwest tech nebbishes... who has adapted to fit-in with the 'team'... by dumbing-down his capacity for dissident thought. Just watching the clock... nodding vaguely... waiting to cash-out. It's like taking off your glasses... and puttering around in a fuzzy world... to avoid staring at tits.

I'm not saying he was always a beige coward. Maybe it's the opposite... he's a real fighter... but he's one of those guys whose testosterone declined with age & now he can only fight like a moody woman. So he dulls-himself-down to avoid spazzing-out.

I could be way off the mark. But... that's the best-fitting hypothesis, given the spotty data available.

I mean, yes, I "get" that animals fart, snore and cough but some of this has gotta be fake, right? Also, as an ex-cavalry soldier, you'd think I'd know this shit. Thank god for tanks...

Fetterman, the brain-damaged Klingon running for Senate in PA, has a wetback wife. Ever since his stroke, she's been running the campaign, and really wants you to know she's bisexual. (Is that their 'unicorn' they're posing with?)

Literally all women are bisexual. What, you'll make out with another chick after a few shots? Announcing oneself like this is kind of a brilliant strategy. You get to ride the DEI gravy train for free.

But seriously, pit bulls are just dogs like any other. Dogs with giant, deadly, bone-crushing jaws. They're turned into fighters by: 1) not cutting the males; 2) starving them. Otherwise, they'll be lovely-dovey and want to bond with a human like any other canine. If you're ever worried about a situation, train her to wear a muzzle.

My two bitches were sisters, but one got more pitbull than the other. They had huge separation anxiety and one night after waiting a long time for me to fix a fence, they took it out on my old dog. I intervened and got chomped on one forearm by each bitch. The more lab-ish one broke my skin. The more pitbully one sent me to the ER for stitches. (They were just air-biting my old dog, but I couldn't tell in the dark.)

As you might point out, I am posting nasty shit lately that is exactly whqat is wrong with the slymepit. I am sick of some stupid shit that thinks they are really smart and always right that posts childish insults and gross shit. Over and over again. I might as well spoil this place for the dumbshits that have spoiled it for me. I apologize to the innocent parties that I offend.
I'm not going name names, but I have had more than a few PMs from reasonable people that used to post here that had had enough abuse and moved on because of the very behavior I pointed out. It's little wonder that the posting base has shrunk here.

I dealt with it . The dog owner apologized and will take measures to deal with the problem. Instead of saying I was being too sensitive about the nuisance he owned to the problem. I might be in a better mood tomorrow if I get a good sleep.

Two nights ago, after midnight, a ConEd utility work crew blocked-off the street under my window, opened the street, and ran a large howling vacuum-hose into the ground for hours. When they left LOOSE-- they left a large metal hatch in the center of the street-- so every 90 seconds the traffic light is green and CLACK CLACK cars roll over it CLACK CLACK about every four seconds CLACK CLACK.

This continued all-day yesterday. Last night the ConEd repair trucks returned & I asked them to repair the noise. They left-again & as morning traffic resumes, the CLACK CLACK is back at 5:30 AM.

I reported an online complaint with the city & the automated reply said the city "REQUIRES !0 DAYS TO RESPOND TO THIS TYPE OF COMPLAINT".

A while-back, I posted about a shoot-out on the block. I've posted about several shootings & stabbings... but this-one was between a car full of the drug dealers who worked downstairs every single day-- vs. another guy who started shooting at-them because they drove-too-close to him as he crossed the street. A retired woman was shot in the ass by a stray bullet. One of the guys in the car was 'Sunny'-- who my GF has known on-the-block since he was around 7 years old-- an a small always-hungry kid with a prostitute mom. Sunny is the one who drove us to the vet to put-down my dog when no taxi or Uber would take us. He hasn't been back since the shooting. Other drug dealers replaced them. But guys I call "Sunny's cousins"-- they look related-- do sporadically return. For about a week-- they've been back again. The crappy white sedan they drive-- might-even be the one they fled the shooting in. Now they do business in front of the low-end cellphone store... and they've got a hispanic girl with them... with a TINY newborn baby. CLACK CLACK.

The block is still filthy with drug addicts. During the day, one block over is now draped-with lowlifes... sitting on stoops & other-people's cars... waiting outside some type of court-ordered rehab program. I don't think it's a methadone clinic. I think it's an alternative-to-jail classroom thing. The graffiti from the George Floyd riots is still everywhere. The covid lockdown "Outdoor Dining" plywood-shanties still line the street-- taking-up parking spaces. Some are in-use, some are homeless clubhouses because some restaurant didn't survive the lockdowns. CLACK CLACK.

BURYING THE LEDE: I recently heard someone ranting about the lockdowns... complaining that the government had "trained us to sit isolated at home, not exercise, just watch teevee & internet & play videogames... and SMOKE WEED... and order food." I had a negative reaction to the complaint-- because I don't like the helpless-victim-blaming-victim tone. I would prefer if we take responsibility for ourselves & route-around the govt-imposed obstacles-- and prevail. But the ranter was telling the truth. And I am included: I've been re-habituated to be less active, less social, less outdoors.

The distrust I feel for employers & co-workers who imposed their nonsense covid rules-- inconsistently, incoherently, and often with SPITE. The political wedges which were INTENTIONALLY placed between family & friends-- and mere acquaintances & passersby on the street!-- are still in place. Trump Derangement Syndrome has not subsided. Some people recover from it-- and switch sides. But those who still suffer-- are more desperate & rabid than ever.

Inflation devouring a Full Month of everyone's earnings, over the last year. Gas Prices. Free tuition forgiveness & javelin rocket launchers for some... 10 days to fix a loose manhole cover for others. Crime & grime.

free thoughtpolice at the top of this post-- really-doesn't 'get' why he's seeing more animosity & bile toward his political sacred cows.

He perceives it as-if La La La... the good ol' slymepit was sailing-along just-fine... until it was spoiled... out of the blue... by unintelligent morons. CLACK CLACK! CLACK CLACK! CLACK CLACK!

I never got any further than supply and demand when it comes to economic theory, but doesn't MMT predict inflation for the real world inputs we saw anyway?

And... for a complete change of subject. Here is a live performance by Jim Croce and Maurice Muehleisen.. They both died in a plane crash shortly after this. The theory is that the pilot had a massive heart attack. This performance is amazing. The guitar work is perfection.

Aide to NYC mayor-- caught on video saying NYC is a 'shitshow' and Mayor Adams isn't 'capable' of addressing the problems:

The Left Can't Veritas. This is their idea of an undercover 'gotcha' video: a GOP politician saying the FBI should be "accountable" and depoliticized, Mayorkas should be impeached for failing at the border (and the fake 'whipping' scandal), and the Secretary of State shouldn't be serving Communist foreign governments. Also-- he holds a baby & tells a joke. Is this an exposé or a campaign ad?!

My wife and I are going to the Traverse City area this weekend. We hope the fall colors are good. We will stay in a little hotel with 6 rooms. All the rooms will be occupied by our friends. It is on the Mission Peninsula which is about the most beautiful spot on earth. Hills and fall colors and wineries and blue lake water on both sides. The wine, especially the whites, are excellent in this area. The lake stabilizes the local weather. There must be 50 independent wineries within about 15 miles. Drinking and dining and games and guitars.

My wife gets her port installed today. It is a tap for infusion that is just under the skin on your chest. This can be used instead of getting an IV in your arm every time you get chemo. They just stab through your skin into the face of the port. The estimated cost to insurance is $26k.

My wife was in a mighty sour mood yesterday. She spent about two hours reading about her cancer. It is common for people to die in less than a year for this. Some go as long as 3 years. There are new treatments however so these numbers are improving. Anyway... she had a really bad day and bitched at me about everything... but... I don't mind. I wish she was happier... but I forgive her for lashing out. I am the only one here... and the only thing she can yell at (other than the dogs who also got an earful). I hope her health is good for our trip.

On another topic. Of course... there are lots of reasons for inflation right now. Oil production is down, microchip shortage, covid lockdown productivity reduction. But... it is clear that pumping money into the economy and funding this through government debt is also not helping. Government debt is not fake. It is real debt... and at some point the debt must be paid.

My retirement savings is down about 20% from my peak. I guess I did better than some and worse than others. Often people make the mistake of exiting the market when it is low... and then they miss the rebound. Best to stay calm if possible.

5 new House race poll-results. All are in Dem-incumbent districts.

1 'Safe Dem' seat fades to 'Likely Dem'.
2 'Likely Dem' seats fade to 'Leans Dem'.
2 'Leads Dem' fade to TOSS UP status.
0 move in the Democrat's favor


The 2 additional "toss up"s increase the high-end number of (D) districts the (R)s might pick-up... to +46.



.

The 176 seats which are (Safe Dem 146 + Likely Dem 19 + Leans Dem 11) ...are fewer than the 178 Seats which are "Safe GOP":



the 'toss up' districts are overwhelmingly (D) blue, at-risk of turning red:



The Most Popular President In History (81 Million Votes!) is strangely-absent from campaigning in these Historically Dem battlegrounds.

The Senate map is much closer-- with (R) holding a slight advantage, but (D) having VP Kamala as their tie-breaking advantage:

Wow-- that Michigan ballot measure to amend the state constitution on abortion-- is 'extra', as the kids say these days.

Any ob/gyn or midwife can abort a baby, even during delivery, without the mother's consent. And the father can abort without her consent!

Oh well... that's what happens when you don't word things precisely, and use gender-neutral terms like 'parent' instead of 'mother'.

Where are you getting this information. I just read the bill and it uses the”viability “ standard like Roe did.

"Fake" and "real" don't do much work as concepts from the admittedly basic understanding I have. Even if we're just talking about your mortgage the debt isn't real the way a tangible asset or even slips of paper representing tangible assets are real. There's a ledger somewhere and all parties agree the ledger is valid, and if you ever stop agreeing you can go to the courts to make a decision through authority derived from the law, and the court's decision is is enforced by the one true authority, which is violence.

Obviously nothing about that scenario is analogous to an entity like the US government.
