Don't Drink the Covet-Cat Coffee!

Michael Prell:
“At a certain point you’ve made enough money.” Says who? The President of the United States. He also said, “I think when you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” In a CBS News story entitled “Obama Versus the ‘Fat Cats,’” President Obama “ratcheted up his rhetoric against Wall Street” calling them “fat cat[s]” and scolding them for not showing “‘a lot of shame’ about their behavior and outsized compensation.” And Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign is built almost entirely on coveting – the promise to reach into the wallets of rich “Fat Cats” and take their money away.
And you know what? Coveting is WRONG. SO SAITH THE BABBLE BIBLE.
If we minded our own business, and followed the Helpful Guideline to not covet, it would not matter to us if our neighbors had more. There would be no class warfare. We would never descend into the covetous madness of declaring what’s “fair” between what our neighbors have and what we don’t have. Following this one Guideline alone would end the most corrosive debate of our time: the covetous urge to take away from the “haves” and give to the “have-nots” in pursuit of some mythical fantasy of fairness in a world that has never been fair – not once, not for a second – since our Ten Helpful Guidelines were first etched into stone.
Y'hear that? STOP COVETING JAMIE DIMON'S STUFF. Because he DOESN'T COVET YOURS.

You Are Being Manipulated

LIGHT BULB!
You’re being manipulated. A well respected, highly influential news source has cast aside all journalistic integrity to shill for the liberal, GOP establishment candidate in this presidential race.

The New York Times, you say? MSNBC? The Washington Post? No. We all gave up on those “progressive” rags a long time ago.
OMG, the suspense is AGONIZING! Who is it?
Regrettably, the latest media outlet to assume a decidedly yellow hue during this heated primary cycle is the Drudge Report. It pains me to even write this. Drudge has always been both my first and last internet news stops of the day.
That's right, NOW YOU KNOW MATT DRUDGE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT THE TRUTH!

Theories

This is gonna bug me:
Nancy Pelosi told CNN last night that Newt Gingrich would definitely not become president, whether he was the GOP nominee or not.

“He’s not going to be president of the United States,” Pelosi said. “That’s not going to happen. Let me just make my prediction and stand by it. It isn’t going to happen.”

Asked why she was so certain by CNN host John King, Pelosi said, “There’s something I know,” but did not elaborate on what she was referring to.
What could it be?

The ongoing importance of presidential blowjobs.

Things You Can and Can't Do

Apple is being jerky again:
Apple's end user license agreement for the iBooks Author app has generated extensive controversy among authors and publishers. Namely, the agreement restricts paid distribution of "works" created with the software to the iBookstore only. Technical limitations may make the restriction a moot point for the time being, as only Apple's own iBooks apps can even read the files generated by iBooks Author. But forcing users to sell content through the iBookstore, governed by a separate contract with its own terms, might not survive an antitrust challenge in court if it were to come up.
A point:
But the control issue is mooted by the fact that only iBooks 2 on the iPad can even read the files generated by iBooks Author. As it currently stands, iBooks Author can only generate an "iBook," not any sort of standards-based e-book. While the format largely relies on the ePub 2 standard for text and images, the interactivity and advanced layout capabilities are added via proprietary extensions that only iBooks can interpret,. And, for now, iBooks made with iBooks Author can only be "experienced" on an iPad—we confirmed that trying to open such iBooks files on an iPhone only generates an error message.
That might be true for now, but I don't know many useful file-types that didn't make a jump to another machine somehow.

The Bizarro Voter

Terence P. Jeffrey gets to the heart of the matter:
Newt Gingrich routed Mitt Romney in South Carolina because he routed the media first. A Public Policy Polling survey of likely South Carolina primary voters completed on Friday revealed that 77 percent said they had an unfavorable opinion of the media. Among the most conservative South Carolina primary voters, fully 89 percent had an unfavorable opinion of the media. The same poll showed Gingrich beating Romney in the primary, 37 percent to 28 percent — fairly close to the actual outcome.

Conservatives not only resent the liberal media for trying to pick the Republican nominee (n.b. the media prefer Romney) but they also resent Republican politicians who, once elected, spend their careers appeasing the media while abandoning conservative principles (n.b. the supine leadership of the Republican party in the House of Representatives). Conservatives want a president whose attitude toward the media matches the attitude Gingrich has shown in recent debates. A president with that kind of attitude, they hope, might actually govern as a conservative.
It's not really about the candidates, it's about sticking it to those jerks in the media, who promote some bizarre world in which rich people have lots of power and fuck anyone they like AND NO REAL AMERICAN WANTS THAT WORLD. Vote Newt!

Competition for the Lord of the Wasteland



"Governor of the Valley of Propellants."

Infotainment

Belle Waring:

Oi, this is so dumb and irritating that I pretty seriously considered not writing about it at all, in part because I worry the comments thread will develop a fetor of glib ev-psych nonsense. Uplift the human race, people, and surprise me with your intelligent thoughtfulness and concern for the feelings of other commenters. Who, I would like you to note, are actual human beings. Ya Rly!

Moving on, Slate has proffered for your attention an article by one Mark Regnerus, if that is his name. It is entitled thusly: “Sex is Cheap: Why Young Men Have the Upper Hand in Bed, Even When They’re Failing in Life.” I’m actually concerned that the stupid is going to burn my screen, and that readers of the article should perhaps be provided with an old-timey screensaver to avoid this.
She then goes on to destroy said article in an entertaining way. Naturally there follows glib ev-psych nonsense of positively Jenniferian horror in comments:
First, we’re going to import the concept of a “gift” into some bit of spider-behavior. Does this make any sense? Who knows! But why stop to think?

OK —stop to think—of course it makes sense. The food ‘gift’ (or resource, or whatever the hell you want to call it) has value (or rather the female expects it to). It is costly for the male to provide (he has to find it and wrap it and can’t eat it himself). The female—if she discovers she’s been tricked and there’s no food in the package—sends the male packing. If this is not an exchange of food-for-sex, then just what the hell would you call it?

Then, we’re going to reapply what we seem to have already established as spidery “gift-giving behavior” to “explain resource-exchanges!” in human sexual relations

No, we’re not. What we’re saying is that males accumulating resources of some sort (food, territory, a finely constructed nest) to attract females is seen in various species. We cannot extrapolate this to humans in any simpleminded way (humans are too complex and too weird in assorted ways for that), but this is the most common pattern, and it is one that’s not exactly unheard of in humans, isn’t it?

That obviously doesn’t imply that resources-for-sex all there is to human mating (and that if you understand spider sex then you understand human sex), but the idea that it’s purely coincidental that ‘males providing resources to females they hope to mate with’ is the most common pattern both across species and human cultures seems…pretty far-fetched, no?
How could he have forgotten about Spider-Man?

All of the foregoing, entertaining as it is, I reproduce in order to heap praise on this by Jenna Moran:
Another example from the natural world is trees and the wind. Often when a tree wants to mate with the wind it will expend considerable biological resources to generate a dead leaf “gift” which it detaches to swirl in the wind. (The opportunity cost is mostly genetic, since a single modern tree has very limited control over how fast its leaves die, but over time their mating behavior with the wind has selected more for leaves that die more quickly than they otherwise would. Note that those leaves, if they did not fall off to allow the wind to blow them around, would have helped the tree consume energy from its secondary polygamous association with the sun; blowing dead leaves around, which doesn’t actually add much directly to the wind’s survival prospects, can be looked at as a signaling behavior where the wind requires the tree to make a biological commitment to it—-”if you liked it you should have put dead leaves on it,” as it were—-in order to secure a relationship and demonstrate a certain baseline health and strength.) Afterwards, the wind or the wind’s descendants will carry the tree’s pollen or seeds this way and that—-it’s like those male spiders that will carry around the female spiders’ offspring on their back to impress potential future mates, or like a woman carrying around a hunter’s credit card on the savannah. Interestingly, though, when trees are not looking you will often see the wind carrying around the gifts of dozens of trees, blowing them about in a circle to decide which trees to have further pollen-wind-sex with in the spring. I think you can probably extrapolate this basic behavior to polygamous and monogamous relationships throughout the animal, vegetable, and elemental kingdoms.
There is a follow-up post entitled "Dear Guys Who Would Like to Make Stuff up About Sexual Relations a priori on the Basis of, Like, Spiders or Something" which is of course worth reading.

By all means explore the hot car-on-spider hentai possibilities below:

New Forms of Abuse

Via an aside in a comment at Crooked Timber, this paragraph about a building:
[Antoine] Predock's design philosophy is very concerned with how the structure interacts with its surroundings. He has called his style "abstract landscape"; thus he blends the structure in with the surrounding landscape. The building also interacts with the people who use it. It was supposedly designed on purpose to be confusing. Visitors are often forced to talk to someone to find out how to get to where they need to go. Doorways that you need to pass through will sometimes be locked, forcing you to find a new way. The doors that get locked rotate every so often, further confusing the situation. The idea was to force human interaction because it houses the social sciences. The building also has a number of Emergency Buttons, colloquially referred to as "Panic Buttons" located throughout.
That amused me greatly, but the Wikipedia informs me that the architect is also responsible for the still-unfinished Canadian Museum for Human Rights which, when I was in Winnipeg, struck me as a notably scary erection. Will it, in fact, be torture to enter this museum?

People of Pallor

Over here we have a discussion of an article featuring the usual cranky white man complaining about Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

From the article itself:
The man who campaigned on the theme that there was no "white America" or "black America" has used his powers as President to practice identity politics on a scale never before seen in America. Barack Obama has overtly chosen top officials on the basis of their skin color and not on the content of their character. Moreover, he has enacted policies that overtly favor "people of color" over "people of pallor" regardless of the merits of the individuals impacted by his programs.
I am gonna be using "people of pallor" for a long long time.

Decay Spreads Over the Tottering Kiddies

The Bastard had a post on Cthulhu-related program activities. As you may know, The Lovely Daughter likes funny words and therefore the Cthulhu mythos cracks her up.

For instance:



Undeniable laffs. But it's not new to her: she's been through the bookshelves and pored over this with its Cthulhu section, which is her style as she likes lists of things more than stories. Not that there isn't some terror involved; over the last year she's been talking about horror stories and bought a version of Frankenstein. So over Christmas we fiddled with a Cthulhu game and this morning after I told her about reading The Call of Cthulhu she wanted to look up more stuff and we found this:



His voice is wiggly enough to convince me this is authentic folk music, gosh darn it, and the "noggin" rhyme is good.

CHINESE SLAVE LABOUR SCANDAL!

Communist bastards!
The U.S. government, through a 75-year-old program called Federal Prison Industries, makes about $750 million a year providing prison labor, federal records show. The great majority of those contracts are with other federal agencies for services as diverse as laundry, construction, data conversion and manufacture of emergency equipment.

But the program also markets itself to businesses under a different name, Unicor, providing commercial market and product-related services. Unicor made about $10 million from "other agencies and customers" in the first six months of fiscal year 2011 (the most recent period for which official figures are available), according to an msnbc.com analysis of its sales records.

The Justice Department and the U.S. Bureau of Prisons don't break down which companies they do business with. But Unicor said inmates provide private call center service, including data review and sales lead generation, for "some of the top companies in America" under a federal mandate to help companies repatriate jobs they have outsourced overseas.

In a fact sheet, Unicor asserts that prisoners in the program are less likely to re-offend and are better trained for full-time work upon release. All revenue goes back into the program, which "operates at no cost to the taxpayer," it says.

The idea has filtered down to some of the states, among them Georgia, Arizona and New York.

Sooper Sekrit Info

The government here has various programs regarding immigration and who they want to come to the country. One of those programs is for skilled workers. My Google-something-for-a-minute-and-claim-it's-a-comprehensive-search diligence having been completed, here's a list of professions being targeted that doesn't seem to appear on the government's immigration site:



These all may change of course - this list comes prior to a lot of potential changes and it's 2012 and 2011 was SO LONG AGO - but it interests me to see what the government thinks we need. My own impression was that we were somewhat snootier and imported lots of experts just to fuck them on the labour market, but what's on the list isn't especially egghead-oriented. (While I feel we are blessed in Vancouver, I take no issue whatsoever with the importation of talented foreign cooks and chefs.) Here's a very boring evaluation of the program so far.

A New Boss

I ordinarily read nothing by Glenn Greenwald. Nevertheless, let us let him be mean because meanness is called for:

Yesterday, the White House announced Daley’s departure — he will now co-chair Obama’s re-election campaign, which basically means raising huge amounts of money from his Wall Street friends — and unveiled his replacement as Chief of Staff: Jacob Lew. In 2010, Lew became head of the Office of Management and Budget when Peter Orszag left and then, a couple months later, accepted a multi-million dollar position as a high-level Citigroup official. Lew has spent many years in various government positions, but he has his own substantial ties to Citigroup. Here is what Lew was doing in 2008 at the time the financial crisis exploded, as detailed by an excellent Huffington Post report from last year:

[Lew] oversaw a Citigroup unit that profited off the housing collapse and financial crisis by investing in a hedge fund king who correctly predicted the eventual subprime meltdown and now finds himself involved in the center of the U.S. government’s fraud case against Goldman Sachs. . . .

[I]t is his few years at Citi — in particular the one year he spent at its then-$54 billion proprietary trading, hedge fund and private equity unit — that’s likely to raise the most eyebrows in the coming weeks as Lew faces a Senate confirmation hearing.

Especially his unit’s investments in a hedge fund that bet on the housing market to collapse — a reality suffered by millions of American homeowners.

In particular, the Citigroup fund run by Lew, Citi’s Alternative Investments, invested heavily in the hedge fund of John Paulson, “who made billions off the deterioration of the housing industry by making bearish bets on securities tied to home mortgages — particularly subprime home mortgages.” One of Paulson’s largest bets at the time involved Goldman Sachs, which the SEC has now charged with “defrauding investors by creating and selling exotic securities tied to subprime home mortgages in 2007 without disclosing that they were handpicked by a hedge fund [Paulson] that was betting on them to fail.”

Obviously there's more at the link because it's Glenn Greenwald but also because These Financial Instruments Are So Darned Complicated That Only Geniuses Can rip you off with understand them.

These Aren't the Jokes We're Looking For

Reliable bonehead Christian Toto:
The only thing more painful than hearing someone explain a joke is listening to the teller defend said joke.

The newest Entertainment Weekly lets frequent Golden Globes host Ricky Gervais do just, and it was as awkward and self-serving as you might fear.

Gervais, the star of “The Office” and a loud and proud athiest, used a guest column in EW [link not available] to defend himself against charges he’s a cruel, vindictive joke slinger. You’d think an edgy comic would revel in such a reputation, especially since all those mean jokes didn’t prevent him from securing yet another Globes hosting gig this Sunday.
There is a good chance that I may never touch an issue of Entertainment Weekly in my life, so tell me, person named after a cute little doggie and a sucker, why is this article by Ricky Gervais so awful?
Gervais says he “tends to explore contentious and taboo subjects,” one reason why so many people are offended by his act. “I like to take the audience to places they haven’t been before,” he boasts. But will his Sunday shtick really be so cutting edge? Will he dare poke fun at the current occupant in the White House? Will he mock those who wish to strike words out of the English language?

Doubtful.
That's right, the column is awful because of jokes he may not make in a few days. You know who else sucks? Christian Toto because he is afraid to make a joke about Christians and how dumb they are IN TWO WEEKS.

Also about people named Christian and how dumb they are in perhaps TWO AND ONE-HALF WEEKS or thereabouts. AND JOKES ABOUT THEIR LITTLE DOGS TOO.
Why would Gervais even bother to pen such a column? Is he responding to a culture in which saying the “wrong” joke can send a comic to humor purgatory or a GLAAD re-education camp?
YES, yes he is, and the GLAAD re-education camp is full-to-bursting with comedy genius Rush Limbaugh and the GLAAD Re-Education Camp II will soon accommodate the others.

Oh wait, let me use my new-found Google Sketchup skillz to illustrate both the "humor purgatory" and the "GLAAD re-education camp" AT THE SAME TIME:

Please see Christian Toto for all your hairy donkey ball sucking needs.

Thank god for the metric template.
Or is it a preemptive strike against a real doozy of a monologue coming our way this weekend?

Cattle

Fairly standard dialogue with a fairly standard ending:
The Lovely Daughter: What's a monastery?
Me: A place where monks live.
TLD: What's a monk?
Me: A monk is a guy who just does religious stuff all the time with other religious guys.
TLD: I'm gonna be a monk.
Me: You have to be a boy to be a monk. You might be a nun if you're Catholic.
TLD: I'm gonna be a priest.
Me: If you're Catholic you can't be a girl and be a priest. They won't let you. Plus you have to believe in god. Do you believe in god?
TLD: No.
Me: Me neither. But you pretty much have to believe in god to be a priest. And be a boy.
TLD: I'm gonna be a priest in a new religion. The cow religion.
Me: Oh, okay.
TLD: And we're gonna have a cow temple and people are gonna come in and say the cow prayers out of the cow prayer book.
Me: What's the cow prayer gonna be?
TLD: Moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo moo [etc.]
Okay, The Lovely Daughter has nailed organized religion, but the important thing here is that I am led to think that a book consisting solely of "moo" would be an excellent project, as littler kids seem to love that shit and if you just deliver the "moo" differently on each page the kid is entertained and the parent might be doing something stupid and silly enough to be entertained as well. So, cow out in a field mooing: moo moo moo. Cow on a tree-branch mooing: moo moo moo. Ghost cow: mooooooooooOOOOOOOoooooooo. Cow stage forward near a show-card reading Beeflet: "Moo moo, moo MOO moo moo." And so on.

A Spot of Freedom

Andrew Stuttaford:
Via The Local, a spot of language-washing in France:
A town in the north-west Brittany region has struck a blow for feminist campaigners by banishing the use of the title “mademoiselle”, or “miss”, from all official forms. The continued use of “mademoiselle” in France to refer to an unmarried woman has been the subject of heated debate in recent years. Regional newspaper Ouest France reported that the town of Cesson-Sévigné, which is a suburb of the city of Rennes, took the decision to get rid of the term from all official forms from January 1st 2012.
Stuttaford plainly thinks something important is being lost here - and hey, mademoiselle is a fun word to say! - but I'd wager Stuttaford would feel differently if there was a word preceding his name that indicated whether or not he'd had a boner stuck in him, or could be pursued by boner-bearing individuals.

What Did the Chicken Take Out of the Library?

After the last debacle I thought "Perhaps these boocs are not for me." After consulting another booc called a dictionary I discovered I meant "books" of course. Silly me! Nevertheless, on I plunge into the homes of occasional silverfish.

I've just recently started on Debt which appears at the outset to be reasonably well-written, preaches to the choir - me and perhaps you too - and appears to be a pinko Golden Bough concentrating on the Unsympathetic Magic of turning credit into morality.

Dancing On Her Feelings

Boy, adding heads on things is easy. Roy quotes Glenn Reynolds:
A lawyer-reader emails: “If Richard Cordray were Sarah Palin, someone would file a qui tam action against him when he gets his first paycheck, and someone in Ohio would file a grievance with the Ohio Supreme Court’s Attorney Disciplinary Counsel seeking sanctions for Cordray’s clearly unconstitutional actions.” Well, not so much if Richard Cordray were Sarah Palin, as if Republicans acted like Democrats. Maybe they should give it a try — the Dems seem to enjoy it. And they did manage to prevent a Palin candidacy through sheer harassment.

You like movies about gladiators…?

Actually, I do. Is that so wrong??? In fact, Starz’s over-the-top gladiator series, Spartacus: Blood and Sand, was capable of reducing me to an emotional 12-year-old every week. I would stare at each new gore-and-nudity-laden episode in a sort of mindless rapture, thinking, “Look… breasts… sword fights… also breasts…”

Hoping for a similar experience of ecstatic regression, I tried out the recent remake of Conan the Barbarian a few days ago. And let me add that I’m a big fan of Robert Howard’s original Conan short stories, which really are excellent entertainment. And let me also add that there was no shortage of beautiful naked women and good sword fights here as well. But the movie’s a dud. Conan the Disappointment. Not terrible or anything, just sort of flat and ho-hum.

What’s the difference between Spartacus and Conan? It’s the story, brother!
No, it's not an excuse if he meant it to be funny.
