Quote of the Day I

I came home to find out that my boys received two trophies for nothing, participation trophies! While I am very proud of my boys for everything they do and will encourage them till the day I die, these trophies will be given back until they EARN a real trophy. I'm sorry I'm not sorry for believing that everything in life should be earned and I'm not about to raise two boys to be men by making them believe that they are entitled to something just because they tried their best...cause sometimes your best is not enough, and that should drive you to want to do better...not cry and whine until somebody gives you something to shut u up and keep you happy.

-- Pittsburgh Steeler James Harrison fighting back against the trophy industrial complex

Quote of the Day II

It is one of the conventions of the British parliamentary system that when the government of the day is considering any form of military action, it gives the leader of the opposition access to the highest-level security briefings, so he (or she) understands exactly what is at stake and cannot complain about being kept in the dark. Thus, for example, last month David Cameron invited Labour's acting leader, Harriet Harman, to a high-level security meeting about the threat posed by Isis extremists, against whom an RAF campaign was being considered.

Given Corbyn's recent difficulty in establishing clarity as to whether he prefers Isis to the American military, would Cameron be able to trust him as a secure recipient of security briefings? The same would go for anything involving Nato action, since Corbyn is much more antipathetic to that western defence alliance than he is to Putin.

-- Dominic Lawson on the insane Leftism of likely Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn

How One Man Has Essentially Bought the California Legislature

De Leon and Steyer have been super-glued together of late. As the Bakersfield Californian reported, "Steyer, a major donor to Democrats nationwide, is pouring money into the California Capitol, and de Leon is introducing bills that echo Steyer's environmental agenda." Steyer has appeared at hearings for de Leon's Senate Bill 350, which would mandate a 50 percent cut in gasoline consumption in the Golden State by 2030. The only way to achieve that goal would be to increase prices substantially. Hardest hit by Proposition 39 and the scorched-earth environmentalism of SB 350 would be de Leon's own constituents in East Los Angeles, one of the poorest areas in a state with the highest poverty rate in the nation. Working- and middle-class Californians with long commutes or who drive trucks for a living would suffer the consequences.

How the SJWs Are Burning Down The Hugo Awards To Prove How Tolerant And Welcoming They Are

RD Brewer had this in the sidebar a few days ago and it's worth a read if you have any interest in SF or just want to see how far SJWs are willing to go to avoid losing their grip on an institution.

According to fiery gaming and sci fi pundit @Daddy_Warpig, the opposition to the Sad & Rabid Puppies slates took the form of encouraging voters to choose "no award" for an award category unless a work with appropriate politics was available. Taking it a step farther, many SJW zealots proved their commitment to tolerance, openness and variety by vowing not to read a work found on a Puppies slate under any circumstances.

Like the Death Star's visit to Alderaan, the results of Hugo Awards voting were ugly and unprecedented. 5 major categories including best novella and best short story went with "no award." To put that in perspective, in the previous 60 years of Hugo Awards, a total of 5 "no awards" have been given previously.

Famous American Madams

Including Cora Crane, the common law wife of Stephen Crane of The Red Badge of Courage.

Not long after, Crane was in town, checking into a hotel and presumably meeting Cora. After leaving and heading for Cuba, his ship ran aground. Cora arranged for Crane to be brought back to her hotel. After nursing him back to health, she started to accompany him on his trips, calling herself Cora Crane even though she had never officially divorced the man with whom she'd previously run off to England. (The woman pictured with Crane above is believed to be Cora.)

When Crane died of tuberculosis, he left everything to her. With that, she built a massively successful 17-bedroom mansion in the heart of the red light district in Jacksonville, Florida. That was only her main establishment; she owned several other brothels.
