“Soft despotism is a term coined by Alexis de Tocqueville describing the state into which a country overrun by "a network of small complicated rules" might degrade. Soft despotism is different from despotism (also called 'hard despotism') in the sense that it is not obvious to the people."

Looking for something part time. Just a couple of months during holiday hiatus. Thinking about Secretary of Defense.

Pat Sajak is tweeting he might be open to being Secretary of Defense.
I've thought of Quirk but he is actually too competent for this Administration.
So I'm sticking with d. rat, while giving Sajak a thought or two.
Rufus too might work. He is definitely a 'yes man', and O'bozo always likes that.

Barack Obama: A Companion of Fools
By Jeannie DeAngelis
It seems that Barack Obama has a propensity to surround himself with some questionable friends. So, instead of trying in vain to slow the rising oceans and heal the planet, it might do the president some good to spend time in the Bible, contemplating verses like Proverbs 13:20, which says “Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.”
Take for example one foolish companion the president walks with: the prominent gay rights activist Terrence P. Bean, 66, who has been indicted for allegedly sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy. At a 2009 Human Rights Campaign dinner, Mr. Obama called the alleged child molester a “great friend and supporter.”
As a matter of fact, Obama’s “great friend” Terrence has frequented the White House at least six times in the past couple of years. An ardent and influential supporter of many prominent Democrats, in addition to visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Bean has also been a guest of the president on Air Force One flying around at $181K an hour.
It’s been said by former Oregon governor Barbara Roberts about Terrence Bean that “He has the president’s ear.” Word is that Mr. Bean was even instrumental in changing the president’s mind on same-sex marriage. Perhaps Terry is the one who fed Obama that “no matter who you love” line the president manages to inject into every speech.
In a 2012 interview with Proud Queer Monthly magazine, Mr. Bean said that Mr. Obama’s repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was one of his proudest moments. And according to Bean, “Another standout moment was the election of Barack Obama” because, according to the indicted sex offender, he “knew from the beginning what an important advocate [Obama] would be for [the LGBT] community.”
So chummy were these two that at a 2012 re-election fundraiser in Portland, Mr. Obama publicly thanked and acknowledged Bean for arranging the event. That same year, Bean told PQ Monthly how Mr. Obama’s re-election was vital:
I’d like to see a Supreme Court with a solid majority of progressives. Over the next few years, many LGBT cases will be heard at the highest level and it’s critical that President Obama is reelected so he can nominate judges who will treat our community’s concerns fairly and with an open mind.
Sorry, but for the average citizen concerned about the direction of the country, it’s a tad disturbing to realize that an alleged child molester has inserted himself so far into the political process that when he’s not sodomizing boys or filming himself having sex with young gay men, he’s influencing presidential Supreme Court picks.Delete
Yet all this controversy is not surprising, because it’s fairly well known that Barack Obama has other gay friends, some of whom also happen to like introducing young people to dubious sexual activities.
Remember Kevin Jennings, Lambda Literary Award winner, gay activist, and founder of GLSEN, the LGBT organization that familiarizes public school children as young as kindergarteners with the homosexual lifestyle?
Obama appointed Jennings to the esteemed position of Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education from 2009-11. In other words, Barack Obama felt comfortable assigning someone the job of overseeing our schoolchildren’s safety who promotes books like “Passages of Pride,” wherein the author muses about a 15-year-old boy's relationship with a grown man.
That’s why it’s no surprise that Mr. Bean, who raised more than a half-million dollars in 2012 to re-elect Obama, is more than welcome at the White House, where he meets with people like the first lady and Obama’s political advisor David Simas.
Ironically, on Mr. Bean’s May 30th visit with Mr. Obama, the president was also hosting a “My Brother’s Keeper” task force meeting. Hopefully the “Brother’s Keeper” activities didn’t include Mr. Bean “keeping,” so to speak, a minority boy looking for a mentor in an older gentleman eager to help him succeed in both school and life.
Either way, an article in Portland’s Willamette Week noted that when not doling out advice to the president, Mr. Bean was allegedly secretly filming sexual encounters with up to six individuals, including his 25-year-old ex-lover Kiah Lawson.
The newspaper said that when Mr. Lawson learned that Mr. Bean had secretly taped him, he asked for money. Bean responded by paying his young lover a $1,600 monthly stipend and taking him to prestigious events, including one at the White House where the star of some of Terrence Bean’s sex tapes got to meet the president.
Lawson’s mother, Tim Nouanemany, maintains that Kiah, who, like Bean, was also charged with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sex abuse, never had contact with the 15-year-old victim. According to Nouanemany, Terry Bean arranged the encounter, plied her son with alcohol and Viagra, and after “grooming” Kiah, used him to “get young kids.”
And so, on behalf of political correctness and thanks to a stunning lack of wisdom, discernment, and plain common sense, Barack Obama has once again made himself a companion of fools. Unfortunately, in so doing the President of the United States has also jeopardized his own reputation and mortified those he’s supposed to be leading.

Physicists Explain Why Coffee Is More Prone to Spills Than BeerReplyDelete
It all comes down to the foam
By Rachel Nuwer
November 17, 2014
Coffee simply does not like to stay in place. Restaurant servers soon learn to pour coffee at the table or to carry the poured cup and saucer separately, lest they wind up with a half-empty coffee cup sitting in a pool of spilled liquid.
Beer, however, presents no such challenge. Servers can maneuver through crowds while carrying a fully-loaded tray of beers fresh from the tap and filled to the top—all without spilling so much as a drop.
Both coffee and beer are liquids, however, so why is one of those beverages so much more prone to sloshing over the edge of its cup or glass than the other?
Curious physicists have now identified the answer—it all comes down to foam.
Just as solid foam reduces noise by absorbing sound waves, liquid foam does the same for motion. The researchers discovered foam's insulating effects by performing controlled lab experiments on coffee and beer. They used high speed cameras to record the waves of motion that rocked through the surface of coffee, an amber beer and Guinness. The more foam that was present, they observed, the more energy was absorbed and the less sloshing occurred.
While the researchers found that just a few layers of bubbles were enough to make a difference for slosh, not all beers were equal in their spillage reduction............
Good video of beer and coffee sloshing around.

A Nepalese Hindu speaks -
All this we were supposed to accept as an exponent of Nepali culture or religion; however, the state-supported Gadhimai massacre was purely a business venture. A group of clever organisers turned the bali ritual into a cross-business venture. Thousands of people (a majority from nearby Indian states with few provisions for animal sacrifice) were made to believe that the goddess Gadhimai would only fulfil their wishes if they donated livestock. In the meantime, the organisers made a profit from commissions, rent, entrance fees, and the sale of bones and hides. None of the income has benefited the community.
I refuse to accept the claim that Gadhimai is part of our heritage because Hinduism does not promote cruelty and barbarism. Hinduism is a tolerant and inclusive religion and I cannot imagine that our gods want the blood of living beings. And I am not alone: there is a growing number of citizens who do not want to worship through a veil of blood. However, they are forced to support state-funded sacrifices and visit temples awash with animal blood.
Practices of Hindu animal sacrifice are mostly associated with Shaktism, and in currents of folk Hinduism strongly rooted in local tribal traditions. However, Hinduism forbids animal sacrifice, and indeed any meat processing, based on the doctrine of ahimsa.
It is a ritual that is practiced today and is mentioned in Medieval Hinduism too. It is important to note that the practice of animal sacrifice is not a required ritual in Hinduism. The majority of practicing Hindus today choose not to participate in or acknowledge the practice. Adherents of the Sakta sect of Hinduism hold this to be a central tenet of their belief.
Nepalese and Balinese Hindus still practice animal sacrifice whereas most Indian Hindus disapprove of the tradition, partly because many don't eat meat and because of the belief in nonviolence. However, even where it does exist, its practice is confined to special occasions. In support of the practice there is a Hindu belief that there are demons who have great powers and satisfying their desire for blood is a way of keeping them happy. Animal sacrifice might involve one chicken or thousands of animals, as in the Nepalese festival worshiping the goddess Ghadimai. Hindu priests in Bali might use it as part of the ritual of opening a new business.
My Niece is of the great majority (75%+) of Hindus. She does not eat meat, fish, sea food, but 'cheats a little on chicken once in a while'.

Did you enjoy your Thanksgiving turkey, Deuce ?
The one raised up just for you ?
How about your last T-Bone steak?
Here in the United States we sacrifice cattle, hogs, sheep on a daily industrial scale.Delete
When was your last Big Mac, Deuce ?
Your last lamb chop ?
Not to appease the gods, but to appease our earthly gross appetites.Delete
Don't forget the Christmas goose.Delete
I don’t eat big macs. If you have ever been to a slaughter house, which I have, hogs come in off a truck and in the summer are wet down and seem to be enjoying themselves as if coming down the gang plank of a cruise ship.Delete
Hogs are social and quite intelligent. At the beginning of the slaughter house they are slowly corralled off the truck nudging on the pigs in front of them. The pace picks up as their numbers are slimmed to a single file. They enjoy stretching their legs and and their first travel experience. At some stage, near the end, their joy of adventure turns to concern and then blatant panic as they realize what is happening to them. At a certain moment, it is too late. The movement forward is inevitable and impossible f to stop. Some try and try hard as their survival instincts and basic intelligence has not been bred out of them.They realize they are in very big trouble and fall into complete panic. They shit and squeal and then they are killed.
To make a religious event dependent on the mass slaughter and killing of animals to appease a god tells me the wrong animal is at the wrong end of the knife.
Killing to survive is an inevitable part of the price paid to being here. A killing ritual based on the pathological disorder of god worship tied into a mass killing, bringing on a rapture of joy and exaltation is not my thing and ruthlessly unnecessary.
There is no such thing as a benign religion, any one and all of them based on killing, slaughter and sacrifice and cleansing and being a slave to some all knowing lord diminishes a human being to the equivalency of a virus.
