Hit the thing with a large spanner...Then call SoD.

My computer never loses an

Garbage in, garbage out . . .

It doesn't matter.

Whatever you wrote is out there somewhere in the great computer multiverse just waiting for you to contradict yourself.

Console yourself with the thought that you only lost one whereas Biden Junior lost a whole laptop's worth.

Next time, compose it in word, then copy and paste.
And this is surely not worth your blood pressure!

To err is human, but to make a proper balls up you need a computer.

That's kind of the goal of the New Left, especially now that President * is in the White House: https://libertyunyielding.com/2021/02/09/france-expresses-alarm-about-americas-drift-into-left-wing-radicalism/

Where are you Duffers?

Your devoted followers are becoming nervous at your absence.

In the meantime have a look at this.

AussieD, David

Don't know whether this stuff has made it all the way to England or Oz yet but all our military branches are submitting to the new demands for ... well:

https://www.navy.mil/Press-Office/News-Stories/Article/2493120/secretary-of-defense-orders-military-stand-down-to-address-challenge-of-extremi/

Our Navy submitted first in line - used to be our oath (indeed all the branches' oath) was along the lines of "I swear to defend the Constitution against all enemies foreign and domestic" - you get the picture.

Here's the latest evolution:

https://media.defense.gov/2021/Jan/26/2002570959/-1/-1/1/TASK%20FORCE%20ONE%20NAVY%20FINAL%20REPORT.PDF

"As a key member of (Task Force One) Navy I will invest the time, attention and empathy required to analyze and evaluate Navywide issues related to racism, sexism, ableism and other structural and interpersonal biases."

"I pledge to be actively inclusive in the public and private spheres where I live and work, and proactively encourage others to do the same."

"I pledge to advocate for and acknowledge all lived experiences and intersectional identities of every Sailor in the Navy."

"I pledge to engage in ongoing self-reflection, education and knowledge sharing to better myself and my communities."

"I pledge to be an example in establishing healthy, inclusive and team-oriented environments."

"I pledge to constructively share all experiences and information gained from activities above to inform the development of Navywide reforms."

So AussieD, David, ... Whaddaya think?

(I just hope the head honchos administering that blather aren't gonna be expecting inductees to memorize all that horseshit.)

G'day JK

I would almost be speechless except that this kind of "woke" bulldust is pervading most Western societies.

The Mullahs and Xi Dingaling must be laughing their tits off at the direction the US is heading.

It seems that the old idea of an armed service was to deter anyone from attacking you and, if they were silly enough to do so, to destroy them utterly and completely.

I can imagine the response from my father at Milne Bay or a Marine on Guadalcanal to being told that they must respect the cultural differences of the opposing Japanese troops and to treat them with due consideration and understanding of those cultural differences.

The Senior NCO's in my command would have exploded at the very idea of treating any rating differently from any other.

Pressed the send button too soon.

It seems that the old idea of an armed service was to deter anyone from attacking you and, if they were silly enough to do so, to destroy them utterly and completely no longer applies .

Something to lighten your day.

AussieD, Communism is simply an evil ideology but this Woke ideology is plain ignorant, which will lead to an evil ideology, much to the surprise of the Woke fools. Seems we in the West have our enemies among us. At least they are close at hand.

Here you are David, a post that'll write itself!

https://time.com/5936036/secret-2020-election-campaign/

Now if that don't get you off your er, duff, I despair nothing will.

Help your Dad Loz.

We have need of him in the moment.

David, et al.,

Brexit has turned out to be quite a bit more bothersome than expected and it turned out the Orange Man really was bad. On top of it we're still in the grip of a plague that doesn't appear to be going away soon.

So in case you pack it in and take your blog down, I'd first like to let you know I've enjoyed going back and forth with you and most of the others here. You're a good writer and not without wit.

I hope that British/EU relations eventually smooth out and the US emerges from the authoritarian/oligarchic woods in which it remains lost. I also hope SoD decides what he wants to be when he grows up.

Best of luck and health to you and your family and also other commenters,

Bob

Uhm ... Bob?

https://duffandnonsense.typepad.com/duff_nonsense/2021/01/you-have-to-laugh.html?cid=6a00d8341c5caf53ef026bdeb4a172200c#comment-6a00d8341c5caf53ef026bdeb4a172200c

Remember putting that up and me coming back explaining to you what *sources - directly via email - informed me about Officer Sicknick "had a previously diagnosed condition and, had had previous strokes and, there is no video footage of his being conked with anything much less a fire extinguisher"?

Well guess what's only coming out now Bob ...

https://bigleaguepolitics.com/new-york-times-retracts-story-claiming-capitol-officer-brian-sicknick-was-killed-in-riot/

And, for what it's worth, there was nobody killed (in the *insurrection*) Well at least by any of the *insurrectionists.*

Yes there was Ashli Babbit who, again *sources personally inform me, was shot to death by a member of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's personal security detail.

Curiously enough, the very same officer also happened to be present during the ball practice session wherein Congressman Steve Scalise was shot and nearly killed by the Bernie Bro. (Had that shooter simply waited a couple of years to do the deed he'd likely benefited from legacy media's recent adoption of the "peaceful protestor" narrative device.)

What's also curious (at least to me) is that while the vast majority of LE officers go through their whole careers without being involved in a single 'active gunfight' that one officer has experienced a twofer.

(Yes I realize Bob you're gonna come back decrying "Nobody's ever publicly announced that!" to which I'd only reply, "Patience Bob, narrative collapse just takes awhile.")

To ALL my Northern - USA - "Friends" who reads around here! (Bob?)!

Your weather is down here here my yard drunker'n Cooter Brown.

I'm gonna need y'all to get down here and take the shit back where it belongs - where y'all are!

Your weather's outta mind down here hell went so far as to freeze my neighbors in Texas' windmills up that they set up to do their part on fixing The Global Warming mess y'all are always on about then next, your weather hit first Oklahoma's then Missouri's then Louisiana's solar 'energy farms' putting all them fine folks out in the cold.

(I'd said something earlier iff'n us Arkansianese had been so dumbass as to set all our eggs in that basket but ...)

Anyway. I'm having to shovel "flurries" an' I don't like it one little bit.

So what I need y'all Yankees to do is get yore asses down here ASAP, Retrieve your weather 'n lend us some of your'ns electrical utility workers to get our'n wind and solar production back on-line or else I gare-un-damn-tee each and every one of y'all I will call AL GORE 911 and sic the Paris Climate Accords on y'alls ass.

And I will be expecting reparations.

"I shall return", when my temper has cooled!

Just steppin outside around these parts might cool ya down abit. Nice balmy -21c, sky clear and sun shinning.

Oh, and a P.S. with the above. I know it to be a minor detail, but do wipe your feet before steppin outside. Just laid a fresh new soft white carpet. Don't want to get it dirty ya know.

JK,

Just concentrate on the bow tie. Any bad things anyone says about the right are fake and the left is always devious and murderous. When you turn off Tucker you will feel awake and refreshed.

Believe it or not Northerners' weather has an up side. Those of us dumb enough to skate or drive a snowmobile onto a semi-frozen lake, downhill ski into a tree, or drive fast on an icy highway often don't get a chance to pass on a lack of sense to new generations. You'ns don't have that evolutionary pressure.

Hoo Noo?!!! Lear (I think; wadn't it?)

Now it is Shakespeare so who is next?

I for one am fed up with this white supremacist bullshit and now make it a point when ever it crops up to ask if the person bitching about "white privilege" is prepared to forgo all the benefits they enjoy because of white Judeo-Christian endeavours in the past.

At 79 I couldn't give a fig if I upset some progressive lovey and in fact the greater the upset caused the happier I am.

AussieD,
White privilege: being held responsible for the acts of your ancestors by folks who accept no responsibility for the acts of their children or themselves.

AussieD,

And I'm not speaking generally but where I grew up from oh, a seven year old to eighteen or so I was personally acquainted with real white supremacists. (You may've seen me'n Bob going all over the subject).

What's presently getting labeled as such is a pale imitation (for political purposes you can be absolutely certain) is any group or individual who, or which in the case of a group, fails to publicly adhere - sufficiently obsequiously - to whatever the ever-changing fashion of the moment "our superiors" have, whimsically, decreed the edict shall be henceforth. Completely arbitrarily.

And that, completely arbitrarily component is key to any individual's attempt to comprehend (and understand) is what's happening in our moment.

The moment and context, one must, in order to begin one's understanding of our current state may, in my considered opinion, be understood to begin at this, particular point:

https://talkingpointsmemo.com/idealab/brendan-eich-resign-ceo-mozilla

And from there 'every other possibility' our superiors could possibly imagine into existence is which Reality we presently find ourselves in is our current state.

But, properly comprehending there is an 'end-state' in sight - though not for us who're from between 45 years of age to whatever age. We of the subsequent to WWII Age to, about, birthed to (about) 1980 will not endure sufficiently long enough to witness it.

Our fellow D&N reader, Whitewall appropriately enough, has pointed in his comments to, what shall prove to be the tipping point which to put a finer point on it is:

"They eat their own." We of our age know the Truth of our past Ages - Europe's Inquisition ended when the street-sweepers of that Age were so decimated that that Age's "superiors" recognized their footpaths were so littered with the ashes of the witches they'd burned at the stake they finally recognized the supply of witches exceeded the demand for witches. For a modern day example:

https://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2021/02/defund-the-bastards.php

But before that there was this from 1958:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four_Pests_Campaign

I could go on with my prognostications but as I think, with the possible exception of Bob that, we who are of "our Age" is doomed to again, run out of witches.

A damned shame.

(Notice I don't compose in quatrains.)

JK,

How about the crowd of white supremacists, skinheads, neo-Nazis, etc. that marched through Charlottesville chanting "Jews will not replace us"?

There are plenty of "real" witches in the Indiana backwoods, too. I've talked to quite a few. Go to Google maps and enter:

Kruger's Korner Klub. Subtle, huh?

For non-Americans, KKK is for the Ku Klux Klan. They've been a murderous gang of white racists and anti-Semites since before our Civil War.

Amateurs.

Bob, why didn’t you just say that they were Democrats?
