Nervous about that Ashley Madison hack? This one’s for you …

Given this week’s Ashley Madison news, it seemed appropriate to post a good ol’ fashioned cheating song to kick off the weekend. So here’s Blu Cantrell, offering some useful advice for any spouses out there caught on the wrong end of that particular stick:

heezback - "from the Washington Times"


Amazing how many of the cons here think we are so anxious to read lengthy cut and paste articles from their far right heroes.

From the Washington Times


By Tom Harris - - Sunday, August 23, 2015

The U.S. government is at it again, hyping meaningless records in a parameter that does not exist in order to frighten us about something that doesn’t matter.


NASA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) announced this week that according to their calculations, July 2015 was the hottest month since instrumental records began in 1880. NOAA says that the record was set by eight one-hundredths of a degree Celsius over that set in July 1998. NASA calculates that July 2015 beat what they assert was the previous warmest month (July 2011) by two one-hundredths of a degree.


But government spokespeople rarely mention the inconvenient fact that these records are being set by less than the uncertainty in the statistics. NOAA claims an uncertainty of 14 one-hundredths of a degree in its temperature averages, or near twice the amount by which they say the record was set. NASA says that their data is typically accurate to one tenth of a degree, five times the amount by which their new record was set.


So, the new temperature records are meaningless. Neither agency knows whether a record was set.


Such misrepresentations are now commonplace in NOAA and NASA announcements. They are regularly proclaiming monthly and yearly records set by less than the uncertainties in the measurements. Scientists within the agencies know that this is dishonest.


They also know that calculating so-called global average temperatures to hundredths of a degree is irrational. After all, there is very little data for the 70 percent of Earth’s surface that is ocean. There is also little data for mountainous and desert regions, not to mention the Antarctic. Much of the coverage is so sparse that NASA is forced to make the ridiculous claim that regions are adequately covered if there is a temperature-sensing station within nearly 750 miles. This is the distance between Ottawa, Canada, and Myrtle Beach, S.C. cities with very different climates. Yet, according to NASA, only one temperature sensing station is necessary for the two cities and the vast area between them to be adequately represented in their network.


In the final analysis, it is no more meaningful to calculate an average temperature for a whole planet than it is to calculate the average telephone number in the Washington D.C. phone book. Temperature, like viscosity and density, and of course phone numbers, is not something that can be meaningfully averaged. “Global temperature” does not exist.


In their award winning book, “Taken By Storm” (2007), Canadian researchers Christopher Essex and Ross McKitrick explain: “Temperature is not an amount of something [like height or weight]. It is a number that represents the condition of a physical system. In thermodynamics it is known as an intensive quantity, in contrast to quantities like energy, which have an additive property, which we call extensive in thermodynamics.”


Even if enough accurate surface temperature measurements existed to ensure reasonable planetary coverage (it doesn’t) and to calculate some sort of global temperature statistic, interpreting its significance would be challenging. What averaging rule would you use to handle the data from thousands of temperature-sensing stations? Mean, mode, median, root mean square? Science does not tell us. For some groups of close temperature measures (and NASA and NOAA are dealing with thousands of very close temperatures), one method of calculating an average can lead to a determination of warming while another can lead to a conclusion of cooling.


Even if you could calculate some sort of meaningful global temperature statistic, the figure would be unimportant. No one and nothing would experience it directly since we all live in regions, not the globe. There is no super-sized being straddling the planet, feeling global averages in temperature. Global warming does not matter.


Future generations are bound to ask why America closed its coal-fueled generating stations, its cheapest, most plentiful source of electric power, and wasted billions of dollars trying to stop insignificant changes in imaginary phenomena.


The sad answer will be that it had nothing to do with the realities of science, technology or economics. The tragic blunder is based on satisfying political expedience for a privileged few, egged on by vested financial interests, and supported by largely uninformed activists granted the media platforms needed to sway public opinion. As Jay Lehr, science director of the Chicago-based Heartland Institute said, “It is a scam that dwarfs all others that have come before.”

Once the FBI and other agencies clear Hillary of any wrongdoing, how many of the cons here and elsewhere will stop calling her a "liar"?


Answer - none.


They have already made up their minds and won't be confused by the facts.


And, they are allowed to vote.


No wonder our country is going downhill.

a principled conservative, like a principled liberal, will accept the truth, and move on, accept the inevitable, whatever.

Ridiculous clown trolls will never accept their fate, their hate is the only thing holding them together.

Like roaches, plague, diahrrea, and other pestilence, the internet will always have ridiculous clown trolls, because its not fashionable to feed them to sharks.

The good news is, with every passing day they become more irrelevant. With that in mind, the ridiculous clown trolls' impotent raving should be a source of mild temporary amusement. Good times.

Trump was asked this morning how he will deport 11 million illegals and how he will pay the estimated $100 billion it will cost?


MANAGEMENT was his answer. When pressed on the question he repeated, Good Managers.


How are the cons going to kill the beast?


I don`t know what they are going to do it either?

Who is we? You, yourself and yourself? Try to separate fact from reality or what is more likely to transpire. Anyway, your post is good for a Sunday chuckle. Thanks!

Also, if he makes it to the General, it frees up SO MUCH CAPITAL for Congressional elections.

Jamelle Bouie suggests in a Slate article that the nativist tone of Republican candidates is alienating Asian voters. Indeed the percentage of Asian voters who supported Republican Presidential candidates over the past three elections has declined by more than 20%.

Bouie cites a 2014 study:[ researchers at Vanderbilt University measured the impact of that rhetoric on Asian voters. How would they react to feeling excluded or questioned on their citizenship? “The simple intervention of making an Asian subject feel excluded with respect to ‘Americanness’ and being suspected of not being a U.S. citizen increased negative dispositions towards the Republican Party and increased positive views of the Democratic Party,” write the authors. Put simply, when confronted with exclusionary rhetoric, Asian voters tied the Republican Party to racial discrimination.]

It is odd for us to see a pass rush out of our defense. We have had nothing since John Abraham left 3 years ago, and very little since Claude Humphrey was here in the `70`s.

Congratulations deb! 


You have been awarded the 1st annual Granny Godzilla "piffle" trophy.


Instead of wasting hundreds of words explaining the obvious to the knuckle draggers, all you have to say is piffle and you automatically win the debate. The cons hate to be piffled and it is proven to explode heads.

So I came to her college on a surprise visit
To see my girl that was so exquisite
It was a school day, I knew she was there
The first semester of the school year
I went to a gate to ask where was her dorm
This guy made me fill out a visitor's form
He told me where it was and I as on my way
To see my baby doll, I was happy to say
I arrrived in front of the dormitory
Yo, could you tell me where is door three?
They showed me where it was for the moment
I didn't know I was in for such an event
So I came to her room and opened the door
Oh, snap! Guess what I saw?
A fella tongue-kissin' my girl in the mouth,
I was so in shock my heart went down south
So please listen to the message that I say

Don't ever talk to a girl who says she just has a friend

For those who are trying NOT to cheat: I've Got A Man


Woman: You can't get a girl like me with a line like this, "Excuse me miss!"
Man:  Well look I'll treat you good
Woman:  My man treats me better
Man:  I talk sweet on the phone

Woman:  My man writes love letters
Man:  I'll tell you that I want you, and tell you that I care
Woman:  My man says the same except he's sincere

Saw Jackie Wilson a couple of times at Bell Auditorium in Augusta in the sixties. I don't remember the title, but the album with "Your Love Is Lifting Me Higher" was one of my first purchases as a teenager.
