Did Cruz Hire Sabo?

Premeditated Murder

The video is conclusive.  This is premeditated murder.

The cop shot him as he was fleeing, and then lied about the reason, which is evidence of premeditation.  Give him the death penalty.

While you are at it, charge all the officers who reported false statements in their reports with accomplice to murder after the fact.  Get them off the force and into prison.

This is the sort of shit that the left made Ferguson out to be.  End it now.  Jail and the needle, all around.

The REAL Lesson

National Review sums it up:

The report’s author, Columbia School of Journalism dean Steve Coll, confirms that Erdely was “searching for a single, emblematic college rape case that would show “what it’s like to be on campus now . . . where not only is rape so prevalent but also that there’s this pervasive culture of sexual harassment/rape culture.”

Make sure that you understand — she did not fail at her goal — she succeeded.  She perfectly captured the “rape culture” on campus, and exposed at as a SJW fantasy, a fabulist creation for political and social engineering reasons, that never actually existed. It is simply a method that hucksters use to prey on your fears.  It’s not real.  The 1 in 5 statistic, the stories of frat gang rapes, the idea that people are being roofied all over frat parties?  Lies.

People get drunk, and people fuck.  When that happens, sometimes people regret it when they sober up.  Welcome to being human.

Does rape happen on campuses?  Absolutely.  There are humans there.  But there is much less rape on campus than in general society.  The campus is the safest place for your daughter to be when she is attending college.  Don’t let the SJW lies hold you back.

Nothing is “too serious” to question.  The serious questions are the ones we must question — and yes, that includes claims of having been raped.  We need to question it, and viciously prosecute the rapists if true — but just as resolutely, we must prosecute the fabulists when they lie about having been raped.

The real rape culture if the culture of lying about rape for sympathy and money.

The Second Time a Farce

I kept thinking that I had heard these arguments before.  “What you are asking for doesn’t make any sense.”  “The law is the law, we’ve passed it, that means you need to give up.”  “If you fight these reasonable restrictions, then you’ll damage your reputation.  It might even lead to a complete ban.”

That’s when I realized that these are the same arguments that we’ve been hearing for 30 years for gun control.  And that’s when I was reassured.  You know why?

We won on gun control.

It took us 30 years — because it was 15 years before we even knew we were in a fight.  But, decades later, we’ve won the court cases, we’ve won the legislative fights, and while there are still some vestigial dinosaurs in government resisting, they are still sinking into the tar, day by day.

The funniest part is that it is the same for gay marriage.  They won.  It’s going to happen.  What isn’t going to happen is the entire reason the Left has jumped onto this bandwagon for a small (<1%) percentage of the population — that this gets parlayed into the destruction of religion.

Those are the stakes.  We get a handle on how “into” the government is allowed to make you (by force, because all law is the use of violence) about gay marriage, or we lose the right to religious freedom.

Casey at the Bat

When Casey let the first two pitches go by, everyone roared to the rafters, even though everyone knew that Casey could bat.  And they were right, because they still lost when Casey whiffed.

When you have some scrub at bat who’s got a 0.000 average, you cut the scrub when he lets the first one go by.

You’ve Been Making White Russians Wrong

And so have I.

This is the traditional White Russian recipe:

Combine in a glass with ice:

  • 1 part Kahlua
  • 1 part vodka
  • 1 part cream/half&half/milk (depending on taste)

Stir.

That’s the old recipe.

Here’s the rub.  Drinks with dairy or fruit juice that are not highballs (mixer with a single spirit) are traditionally shaken, not stirred.  There’s a good reason for this — it makes the drink colder, it combines the cloudy ingredients better, and in the case of dairy or egg, foams the drink.

Stirring has its own advantages for clear spirits.  It doesn’t knock volatiles out of the spirit or over-incorporate air (both things you don’t want to do with gin, especially.)

So why is a White Russian stirred?  Because a White Russian is a variation on a Black Russian, which does not have dairy. Since it is Kahlua and vodka, it should be stirred.  When they turned it into a White Russian, they kept stirring it.  It’s how the Dude makes his (although he also uses non-dairy creamer on occasion, a habit I simply cannot endorse, even as a Dudist.)

So I had to give it a try.  I shook a White Russian.  Everything I had suspected was confirmed.  Shaking this drink perfects it, and it was good to start with.  I would say that for this, cream is necessary.  If you do this with milk, you are robbing yourself.  Shake it with cream, vodka and Kahlua.  It gets frothy and thick like a milkshake (you need the cream for that — the same process as with whipped cream happens, as the proteins entangle with the fat, and you need cream for that to happen, not milk).  The volatiles that normally get contained in it are released, and it gets an amazing nose.  It’s milkshake cold, and absolutely wonderful.

My only mistake with it was that I served it traditionally, over rocks.  The milk solids in the cream coated the ice, which was unpleasantly ugly, and it didn’t really add any cold.  From now on, I’m shaking it and serving it up in a cocktail glass, like an Alexander.

And that is how you stop making White Russians wrong.
