Get Off My Lawn
Atlantic, by James Fallows

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/18/2019 5:15:21 AM

For a long time I thought the problem was all in my head. When I was growing up, I knew that a certain kind of noise was one I needed to avoid. Food blenders in the kitchen, hair dryers in the bathroom, a vacuum cleaner whooshing around—all produced an intense whining sound that, given the specific wiring connections between my ears and my brain, kept me from thinking about anything but the sound itself while it was going on. Over the years I lived by this code: I used high-performance earplugs if I needed to write or otherwise concentrate

Another lefty neurotic whining his need for a quiet safe space, then condemning the norms of society as evil because they do not cater to his neurosis.

What a weanie he is. Probably should get herself a sound proof room to add to the ear plugs and head phones. Perhaps "she´ll" accidentally lock the door and be stuck in there forever. One can always dream

Two points: first, why does every story in The Atlantic become the next "great American novel" and go on long after any interest in whatever subject it´s about wanes?

Second, I can understand that there are sounds that, for whatever reason, are especially irritating to a particular ear. In my case it is the high-pitched, nasal speech of so many females who are on tv these days in ever-increasing numbers; with those who engage in vocal fry a close second. Thank goodness for the "mute" button.

One of the most tiresome writers, Fallows is only 69. He sounds like a fusty 80something, although most 80somethings these days are pretty sharp cookies.

He drones on and on, wandering this way and that, until finally - apparently - he runs out of gas.

No, I didn’t read the whole thing. A few paragraphs and it was either scroll through the rest or go to sleep with my head on my keyboard.

As a person who has worked in the lawn care industry, I can tell you that using a rake and broom to remove leaves and grass clippings from sidewalks is labor intensive and time consuming. Without leafblowers, you can expect the costs to increase (more manhours).

Another snowflake on the Left expecting the majority to cater to him, rather than him trying to find alternative solutions to a problem. Bose makes great headphones that cancel out noise.

Hubby too has a problem with some higher pitched noises, but he simply closes a door or does the ear protection thing until the noise goes away. Get a grip Jimmy, for you make me wonder how on earth you managed to survive to age 69. You are such a delicate doily.

Waste of bandwidth. This dweeb is more of a snowblower anyway.

FTR, leaf gassers are now prohibited in Palm Springs and they´re slated to start writing tickets in June. This is a big victory for the ´flakes about town; same with coming down on tobacco even as dope shops pop up on practically every corner.

Very long article that sums to: Get rid of leaf blowers, or at least, improve their technology so they do not destroy hearing. If you live in an urban area, leaf blowers are very loud, and do affect hearing, as well as blow dirt over everybody´s vehicle, while blowing it off the street. I agree with the article that urban noise should be addressed. There are electronic beepers everywhere. Even the appliances have gotten loud, the refrigerator, new stoves. It is affecting hearing, and it is a serious issue.

We don’t allow our lawn service to use a leaf blower but for a different reason.

Leaf blowers blow grass, leaves and weed seeds onto the grass and into the garden. They blow dirt around several feet high.

At our house no leaf blowers. After the lawn service cuts the grass, I go out with an old fashioned broom. Very relaxing.

Crazy whack-job lefty on a vendetta against leaf blowers.

IF his stats on "pollution" are correct, he says that some number of California´s tiny leaf blower motors, run for a tiny number of hours per month, ´put out more pollution that all the cars in California´.
Ozone isn´t typically caused by internal combustion engines, and how long ago were we being hammered by "there are holes in the ozone, we are running short on ozone"?

But, if this tidbit is true, it points out more how vanishingly little pollution comes from modern cars than it points out about leaf blowers. Last I checked a modern car put out something on the order of less than 1% of the pollution of a pre-68 car. Of course, I am talking about actual pollution, not "carbon" (dioxide) which they are trying to pretend is a pollutant, and it is not, it is a necessary gas for plant life.

Trump’s Caddy Will Put You in a
Chokehold If You Criticize His Boss
Politico Magazine, by Rick Reilly    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/24/2019 5:54:26     Post Reply
President Donald Trump’s two most loyal employees aren’t politicians or fixers or publicity flacks. They’re caddies. He has a regular outdoor caddy—a 60-something ex-Marine named A.J.—who loops for him faithfully at Trump National Golf Club Washington in Northern Virginia. And then he has a kind of indoor caddy—Dan Scavino, Trump’s social media director, and one of the very few staffers who’s remained in Trump’s orbit from the start of the campaign—who actually met Trump caddying for him when he was a teenager. In a way, A.J. and Scavino are the same guy. They’re both mostly unknown,

The Democrat Party and its persons and policies have been more than a bit off-plumb for decades. But only over the last couple of years have they been moonbat barking mad. (Affirmative action is a policy misdemeanor next to the felony fraud of reparations.) The current D lot makes the George McGoverns and Hubert Humphreys of yesteryear seem like measured statesmen and deep thinkers by comparison. There no longer appears to be an adult in that room. The reinforced platoon of Democrats who’ve announced their intention to run for president in 2020 include a scrum of foul balls,

College admissions scandal generated disgust

The college admissions bribery case has left people fuming. Stories of wealthy, well-connected parents allegedly paying large bribes to buy their kids seats in top-tier universities or high scores on college admission exams have stoked disgust and angry calls for the accused to be punished. But prosecutors cannot bring a case on outrage alone. In filing criminal charges last week against 50 people alleged to have played roles in the wide-ranging scam, the U.S. attorney in Boston embarked on an ambitious and, in some regards, uncertain legal odyssey, legal experts said.

Brexit is, at bottom, about self-rule

Amid the shambolic fracas in the British government and Parliament over how and when Brexit should take place, it’s important to step back and remember the why. The United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union is not ultimately about trade or regulations. It´s about something more fundamental: the natural right of people to form and control their government. At its core, Brexit is about democracy and self-rule. Britons wanted their government, parliament, and courts to once again be the final authorities in the land. The flow of power out of Britain and into Brussels isn’t some theoretical concern.

   

 



 
End of the Mueller affair

Robert Mueller is closing up shop. He has delivered his report to Attorney General Barr. No more indictments will be secured by his office: CNN hardest hit. What have we learned? Paul comments cautiously here. I throw caution out the window to make these provisional observations and comments. Mueller has secured the indictment of 34 individuals (and three companies). A few of the individuals would have rolled merrily along but for their association with the Trump 2016 presidential campaign or their service in the Trump administration. The lion’s share of those indicted are Russians who are alleged

For nearly two years, the American public, and quite a few observers overseas, have hung on Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s every word and action: each hire, each redaction, each revealing and yet opaque footnote in hundreds of filings. His fans have indulged in devotional candles and meme T-shirts. The document that Mueller delivered to Attorney General William Barr has been so eagerly awaited that its official name might as well be “The Highly Anticipated Mueller Report.” This must be uncomfortable for Mueller, who shuns publicity, doesn’t seem to have much taste for politics, and has maintained a silence

The Southern Poverty Law Center is a ‘scam’
Washington Examiner, by Becket Adams    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 3/23/2019 5:03:22     Post Reply
The Southern Poverty Law Center’s problems go well beyond the fact it’s a vicious, left-wing attack dog with no care whatsoever for the reputational and personal harm it causes by lumping Christians and anti-extremist activists with actual neo-Nazis. As it turns out, the SPLC is a cynical money-making scheme, according to a former staffer’s blistering tell-all, published this week in the New Yorker. The center’s chief goal is to bilk naive and wealthy donors who believe it´s an earnest effort to combat bigotry. The only thing worse than a snarling partisan activist is a slimy conman who merely pretends to be one.

Watch in slow motion as Democrats, goaded by the media, conspire to reelect President Trump: Voters care about the economy and making education and health care affordable. And so Democrats are talking about . . . abolishing the electoral college? Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) started the latest distraction at a CNN town hall on Monday. “Get rid of the electoral college,” she said, neglecting to mention that this has zero chance of occurring in the foreseeable future. The media took it from there. On Tuesday, MSNBC’s Garrett Haake pressed former representative Beto O’Rourke (Tex.)

Five things that didn´t happen

Robert Mueller has delivered his report on the Trump-Russia investigation to Attorney General William Barr. Sometime soon, perhaps within hours, Barr will send the report´s "principal conclusions" to Congress. It will first go to the chairperson and ranking member of both the House and Senate Judiciary committees. It is unclear what will happen after that, but certainly other lawmakers will see the document, and there will be a steady stream of leaks of what is in the report. The Mueller investigation is over, and it is apparently the case that Mueller does not recommend any new indictments.

Who is the biggest threat to our constitutional order? It is not President Trump. Ever since Trump took office, Democrats have been telling us he is an authoritarian who threatens our system of government. Well, today it is Democrats who are declaring war on the Constitution. Leading Democrats are promising that, if elected in 2020, they will abolish the Electoral College and might also pack the Supreme Court with liberal justices -- allowing them to marginalize Americans who do not support their increasingly radical agenda and impose it on an unwilling nation.

The mainstream media seemed to suffer a collective shock Friday evening after the office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed its final report of its Russia investigation to the Department of Justice. MSNBC host Chris Matthews seemed livid that neither President Trump, his children, nor his “henchmen” would face any criminal charges from the special counsel. “Maybe he missed the boat here,” Matthews said of Mueller. “Because we know about the Trump Tower meeting in June 2016, we know about the meeting at the cigar bar with Kilimnik [Konstantin Kilimnik, a Russian political consultant].

The legendary singer and actress said that Wade Robson and James Safechuck — whose allegations against the late King of Pop resurfaced in the recent documentary “Leaving Neverland" — “were thrilled to be there” and that what allegedly happened to them “didn’t kill them." Streisand, 76, made the strange comments to British newspaper The Times in a piece out Friday, in which she also said that Jackson’s “sexual needs were his sexual needs.”

District 1 City Councilman Roberto Treviño motioned to approve the Food, Beverage and Retail Prime Concession Agreement with Paradies Lagardère for the airport Thursday on condition Chick-fil-A be excluded from the agreement. Treviño asserted Chick-fil-A has a “legacy of anti-LGBTQ behavior” and that such a business had no place in the city’s airport.

Even though we do not yet know exactly what the Mueller Report says, we do now know that no other indictments are in the works. No collusion with Russia by the Trump campaign was found. So, the self-assured and confident predictions by so many on the left that they had seen "cold, hard evidence," and that Mueller would find copious evidence of "collusion" with Russia, was just wishful thinking alone. They all had to know the infamous "dossier" was faked.

First of all, of course everyone should wait to see the contents of the actual Mueller report before drawing any specific final conclusions about it. But here are some laws of nature in the modern age: If that report contained a fraction of the damaging material breathlessly awaited in the media culture for two years, there would be some smoke signal of it. Instead, we saw an actual finding from the Justice Department that there would be no further indictments from the probe. No indictment of Trump.

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s advisers are reportedly asking him to consider pledging to just serve one term in office if he wins his party’s nomination and faces off against President Donald Trump in the general election. (Snip)Biden’s advisers are discussing “a possible pledge to serve only one term” and framing Biden’s 2020 campaign “as a one-time rescue mission for a beleaguered country.” Biden is reportedly “uneasy with the prospect of pledging up front not to seek re-election,” though, “believing that it would make him a lame-duck president before he even takes office and cripple his ability to get anything done.”
