If the unions are serious about improving society-- they should oppose the Teacher's Unions too. Teacher's unions are to the kid's best interest-- what cop unions are to poor people's best interest.
What about the parent's best interest? ie a free baby-sitting service.

Atheism-is-unstoppable just got yanked off Youtube. Devon Tracy is on Bitchute so I will find him there. I expect that I am getting close to using Bitchute to follow several people like Styx. Youtube is purging lots of stuff right now.

A famous choreographer-- I mean, famous within the world of Ballet and Broadway and Modernistic dance-- white, male, gay-- from the generation hit hardest by AIDS-- is now experiencing a trickle of woke racial-grievance complaints, from former dancers.

Remember touring the world together-- grueling airplane and bus rides, late nights in hotels, alcohol, weed, sweating & working together, creating art, laughing, getting paid to dance, applause, sex, flings, marriages, babies born, break-ups, having to work-together afterward, all the other interpersonal molehills? Well I very much don't now appreciate when you used to say 'whaaaas up my niggaaaa'.

Or the times-- in silly dances in the vein of John Waters or South Park-- when you cast everybody in farcical roles-- how dare you put a black man in a long blonde wig & make him the princess being rescued by the fat bumbling white prince, or whatever. In the 90's it was mildsauce-edgy subculture 'resistance', but now it's a hate crime!

His management is considering a big meeting-- staff, alums, associates-- part group-hug, part throwing himself at the mercy of the crowd, part explain-a-thon, part 'air all your grievances now... so we can put this behind us'. My advice: apologizing won't squash the issue. Because there's power in Withholding Forgiveness.

Staging a Truth & Reconciliation Commission on Racial complaints-- will quickly bleed into Sexual complaints. The corny sexual jokes an old faggot mades will be trotted-out as fresh horrors. And why weren't women given more pay or leading-man roles or less-revealing costumes?!
Ok-- so it will be Race + Feminism outrage. Maybe a bit of Trans, because yesterday's drag-queen you-go-girl is today's trans minstrel show.


One big problem: The guy has been a diva and a cunt. Sharp-tongued, short-tempered, haughty, grumpy. An imperfect mortal human. I don't think they can clear the air-- unless THAT is on the agenda.

Ok, yeah, some percentage of your outrage is from the time he said you should stand in the bright part of the stage-- because you'd be invisible in the dark part. But what percentage is from the time he-said you were wasting his time by not learning a dance step fast-enough, and if you didn't pull your head out of your ass, he'd have to give the role to someone-else? Or the time he made fun of your smelly socks.

Or your own choice to enter a profession where you spend decades of physical labor-- in order to literally audition before an all-powerful figure-- praying for approval, often overlooked, finally relieved to be picked, but forever relegated to being a nameless interchangable mannequin-- while his name is on the marquee.

And, by the way, were you ever petty shitty abusive stupid or more focussed on cocaine than work? And didn't he tolerate your suckitude, instead of firing you? Would you be better off if he took someone else to Tokyo, or to meet Obama, or if some other dancer's family got to watch their kid on PBS?

And if you finally get a chance to tell him-off... will you use your own thoughts & words & full spectrum of emotions... or will you recite a bunch of woke post-modernist academic outrage-jargon du jour/ an autistic ritual/ a one-note performance.

Well, if bitchute has a block/ban/mute function, Devon "Screeching snowflake" Tracy will be right at home. He may make some interesting content but for all his bluster and bravado, the guy is a simpering bitch who goes bat-shit mental at the slightest criticism.

Well that was a matter of not if but when. I'm surprised he wasn't in the original purge.

For those who want a little less Google in their lives, and less of their lives in Google, I switched a couple weeks ago to the new Chromium based Edge browser and the Bing search engine. Bing is every bit as good as Google Search now (had to give up on Duck Duck Go because it was slow and unreliable), and Edge is noticeably faster and much less of a memory hog than Chrome, while running Chrome plug-ins flawlessly. So the transition has been not just painless but beneficial. Would never have thought 10 years ago I would eventually trust Microsoft far more than Google when it came to privacy. Still don't trust them that much, though, and I'm doing all but my most vanilla browsing in Edge's privacy mode and behind a VPN.

Why trust either of them? You may have noticed that pirating Windows is now much easier than it was with XP and they're trying to shift people from local accounts to MS accounts. Why do you think that is? I maintain a burning hatred for anything forced on me by Microsoft. If I could find a way to excise Edge from my installation with fire I would. I like my PC to be efficient and uncomplicated. Microsoft wants my PC to be as complex as fuck. Please just supply a barebones OS so I can decide what goes on my installation. Don't force Microsoft Store and a thousand other useless bits of dross on me. If I reboot my PC I have to wait at least five minutes for disk activity to drop below 100%. I've had to spend days resolving this issue so many times but MS always find a way to bring it back by sneaking in an update or upgrade. Things I thought I'd disabled re-appear. A Windows installation turns what could be a useful tool into an expensive electricity wasting device dedicated to updating itself. A very expensive brick.

Can't do it. I'm basically a Microsoft development stack software developer. Once .NET 5 becomes official later this year, at least in theory I could move my development environment to a Linux distribution, but I'd have to hear overwhelming reports that this is trouble-free before considering the move. If I weren't in this situation, I would strongly consider it.

I unsubscribed and started ignoring him a few years ago for just this reason. I think I only started watching his videos again when, ironically, YouTube would frequently put them in my recommended feed (I don't like to think of where this puts my user profile in the Google recommendations algorithm, which is one reason I'm going to try to leave Google before they start messing with me). While he's still pretty tightly wound, he seems to have loosened up quite a bit in the last year and he has a lot more humility and is able to handle contrary viewpoints. He probably realizes the great majority of his viewers are either Trump fans or anti-anti-Trump, so as arguably a TDS sufferer, he had little choice if he didn't want to abandon his YouTube career.

D is also for Drunkard.

The dog is doing really-well. After the 2nd week-long stay at the cabin-- he had bursts of trotting faster than walking-speed & initiating 'fetch'. Returning to the city, he's slowing down again-- due to hot, hard sidewalks-- having to climb flights of stairs. If his future is a very slow steady unpunctuated decline... it will be hard to say when is the right time to end him. For now, he's fine.

Diet is mostly postponed. I've only been able to maintain keto or one-meal-a-day for, like, 2 or 5 weeks at a time-- until I default to girlfriend's shopping & cooking habits.

Drunkard is the cabin-owner friend. Man-- he's in bad shape. Kept pulling over the car to puke, as we drove home earlier this week. The last few days have felt like a long hangover-- from dealing with him.

This has been brought to you by the number 3 and the letter D.

Bend her to your will and rage against the machine. Got my calcium score (CAC) back today - 0%. That dropped my risk from 6% to 3%. My MD echoed our Pit Resident. “We only worry about High T-cholesterol if your overall risk Is >10%”. Further, psa and crp are both v. low.

I know. We are all gonna die hideous deaths. One day. But in the meantime. Butter. Meat. Eggs. Salmon. Nuts. Cheese. Berries. 90% chocolate. Greek yoghurt. Spices. 17:7 IF. No snacking. It’s a King’s recipe.

Ummmmmm. This is a thing? :) I take the dog for 6km Bataan death march every day while I’ve been working in lockdown. We re-play the Cold War as he tries to anticipate “walk time” - so he can do his own impression of a chimp out. It’s got to the point where he can hear me try to ninja-change into tracksuit pants two rooms and two doors away.

D is also for VitD:



It’s winter here so I’ve started a daily 4000IU supplement. Is that woo-ish?

D is also for diamond push-up.

I’ve been doing 3-4 sets of 20-25 normal push-ups. Working on proper technique etc. Feeling pretty good as I got results.

Then I came across diamond push-ups. Fuck me. :bjarte:

My dad just died two hours ago. I'm in shock. It happened so fast. I didn't even get to say goodbye. I've been dreading this day for six years. Now it's here. 3rd of July, 2020. I've been crying so much I can't cry anymore. My dad was everything to me. He was the only one I could talk to about anything and he'd listen. I could give him a hug whenever I felt like it. He'd always know how to make me feel better. Now I feel lost. I don't know what to do.

Oh, I'd hoped and I'd hoped for things to get better but it never did. There was always something else that replaced whatever got fixed and then whatever got fixed came back with a vengeance somewhere down the line. I felt so helpless. I just wanted his last years to be without pain. I just wanted to be there for him. I'm kicking myself for all the times I felt too tired to do things with him. I'm kicking myself for all the times I put off getting his stuff in order from the attic, when he didn't have the strength to get up there anymore. Either it was too late or too early, or I felt hungry or something. Just petty reasons. Still, he understood and was never angry with me. He was the most patient man I ever knew and he never raised his voice.

I love you, dad. You're not in pain anymore. You can rest now.

Sorry Pitch, it’s been a ‘process’ eh. I lost my dad in my early 30s. Burst into tears and then died emotionally as a result so I didn’t shed a tear when my equally loved mum passed away a few years later. So let the emotion flow. It’s sounds trite - but parents live on in memory and as you get older, I’ve found solace in a weird sense of comradery.

Commiserations.

I think I read somewhere that time is like a crystal matrix.

People still exist and will forever - though in a someone less accessible state to those of us that have carried on.

I've been crying so much I can't cry anymore. My dad was everything to me. He was the only one I could talk to about anything and he'd listen. I could give him a hug whenever I felt like it. He'd always know how to make me feel better. Now I feel lost. I don't know what to do.

Oh, I'd hoped and I'd hoped for things to get better but it never did. There was always something else that replaced whatever got fixed and then whatever got fixed came back with a vengeance somewhere down the line. I felt so helpless. I just wanted his last years to be without pain. I just wanted to be there for him. I'm kicking myself for all the times I felt too tired to do things with him. I'm kicking myself for all the times I put off getting his stuff in order from the attic, when he didn't have the strength to get up there anymore. Either it was too late or too early, or I felt hungry or something. Just petty reasons. Still, he understood and was never angry with me. He was the most patient man I ever knew and he never raised his voice.

I love you, dad. You're not in pain anymore. You can rest now.
Sounds like you actually did a whole lot for him. He knew that and appreciated it.

I'm sorry, Pitch. Grief is the shittiest experience, as there is nothing you can do to speed through it; you just have to suffer like a dumb animal until it fades. Eventually, you just remember how lucky you were to have someone so kind and wise in your life as an example, and you honour him by doing your best to live up to his example. Talk about him with those who knew him, and keep away from booze. It will fade.

The cult of White Guilt demands that all white people must admit they are racist.

Admitting to being racist-- on social media-- is also grounds for having your admission to college revoked:

"Colleges Rescinding Admissions Offers as Racist Social Media Posts Emerge" - The New York Times
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/02/us/r ... sions.html
Liberty Woodley, 17, the 2020 valedictorian of her high school class in Cape Coral, Fla., had accepted an offer to attend the University of Florida. But she will not be enrolling in the fall. The sudden change came after an actress last month called on her more than 500,000 Twitter followers to send her screenshots of hateful social media posts, and one of Ms. Woodley’s old Instagram posts was surfaced.
“I really try so hard not to be a racist person, but I most definitely am, there’s no denying it,” read the screenshot caption, which Ms. Woodley wrote when she was 16. In the post, she also used derogatory language* to refer to two Black students in her class.
Ms. Woodley and her parents could not be reached for comment, but she said in an interview with The Gainesville Sun that she had apologized and had written the post out of anger at a time when she was being constantly bullied. The post first resurfaced last year, prompting death threats. “I am not racist at all, and I am not full of hate,” she said, according to the newspaper.

*
For some students, the offensive social media posts that cost them their admission were made years earlier, as was the case for Kyle Kashuv, a survivor of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., who became an outspoken defender of the Second Amendment and was later accepted into Harvard University. Last June, he announced that Harvard had rescinded its admission offer over a trail of derogatory and racist screeds that Mr. Kashuv wrote as a 16-year-old.
https://d24fkeqntp1r7r.cloudfront.net/w ... ture11.png
"In some cases, the revoked admissions offers are the results of concerted efforts by teenagers who have leveraged large social media followings and created Google spreadsheets to collect and document racist and offensive behavior with screenshots, videos and the names of those involved."

I'm still a wreck. I'm sorry I haven't responded.

Hunt: Family to talk to? I do, but I don't have anyone to vent to. No really close friends at home. That's why my dad was so important to me. I have you guys, but it's ... not the same. No offense.

mordacious1: He was. I already miss him. It's going to be a tough 24 hours.

Kiwi: I could try to be my dad, but I could never emulate him. Most everything I am you can attribute to him, but I'm a very poor substitute. I just wish I had the foresight to learn more from him before he passed.

Brive: Then we're the same. I'm 32 now. My dad was 71. I've been crying a lot, but I also feel like I'm dead inside. I've been trying to watch stuff to cheer me up. Things that I know would make me smile otherwise, but ... nothing. It feels like I'm in a perpetual state of disbelief and I'm going to wake up in the morning and it was all a bad dream. It's horrible.

MarcusAU: Thanks, Marcus, for trying to make me feel better.

Lsuoma: Thanks, FT. I will try.

Thank you all. You guys are the best. :romance-grouphug: :obscene-drinkingbuddies:

Hearing this from you means a lot, knowing what you're going through yourself. Thanks, man.

I tried to do my best, but sometimes I was just lazy and I feel terrible about that. Man. I'm just a mess. I'm going to try and get some sleep. Thank you all for your support. I mean it.

RIP Father Pitch. We are all imperfect creation Pitch. Your father loved you in spite of.... or perhaps because of your flaws. He would want you to forgive yourself.

This little girl is 16 and just graduated from High School. Wow.... what a gift. The Petersens are a family group (except for the dobro player) from Missouri. I find them delightful to watch these days.

All the best, Pitch. I'm sure you'll find a way to honour his memory by passing on his best qualities to someone else.

When everyone is racist, no one is.



Somehow, it doesn't seem to quite work that way.

Pitchguest - don't try to be your Dad. Just be you. I think that you'll be surprised how many of his characteristics you have, and how that will make others feel.

Best.

Plus, be aware that losing parents when young isn't unusual - I lost pop when I was 17 (he was 47), ma when I was 26 (she was 51) - it sets you apart, but it can be a way to grow more quickly.

Pitch, I can't offer much, but I'm very sorry to hear of your loss. Take time to grieve, and remember to take care of yourself.

That's true. I lost my dad at 21 - not sure if it helped me grow, but it probably did set me apart somewhat.

Now that Ghislaine Maxwell has been arrested by the FBI, should we expect to see another in-jail "suicide" while on suicide watch, and accompanied by a mysterious failure of all the CCTV systems?

What is it going to take for the sane to explode? Is Western civilization going to going to die cowering?

Same shit happening in the UK. Police bow before the crowd, until the anti-BLM protesters come out.
