LIEN.

It used to be a trope in old gangster movies that some hulking henchman would be told to put a lien on someone who owed money and would literally lean on them, until they agreed to pay.

Children’s Hospital Targeted Amid Right Wing Anti-Trans Hate [youtu.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 31, 2022:
Right wing ideology relies upon demonization of a minority group, a scapegoat to be blamed for all the perceived ills of the world, a focus for hate and violence as a rallying point and a PR tool. At the moment it is Trans people but has been Witches Single parent families Jews Muslims Immigrants Gay people Fat people Pornography Falsely accused paedophiles Feminists Sex workers Communist by fascist Fascists by communists Catholics Protestants Mormons Freemasons Jehovah's witnesses POC The Irish Red Haired People Fiction writers Reporters and journalists Short People Germans Ex-cons Women Men The Japanese Enemies of the people The rich The poor the middles classes Comedians Other right wing groups who are doing it wrong!!! In fact anyone you can think of has by someone else been demonized and blamed for everything by someone else, usually someone who has been previously persecuted and wants to get their own back.

***"But Bryan Hughes is now trying to fix the problems he created.*** ***In a letter to the state’s Commissioner of Education Mike Morath, Hughes elaborates on his intentions. He says that the wording of the law requires posters to say “In God We Trust” in English because that’s the way it’s written in the law itself. "*** There was a joke when I was a kid that according to English speakers there are only two languages in the world English and Foreign and that was only so because non English speakers are smelly, stupid and too lazy to learn English. Typical that a racist joke from the 1960s is now a Texas State Senator

LenHazell53 comments on Aug 24, 2022:
To update, the text of Trumps filing has been released and his request for a special master (an actual but near obsolete legal term) is based on his contention that many of the documents are subject to "executive privilege" and therefore are his personal property. Also that had the national archive asked he would have returned all the documents, and further that continued persecution of former president Trump is causing national unrest and that therefore the matter should either be dropped or carried out under the auspices of a Trump appointed special master to "assist" with the "Defusing mounting pressure" 1) Executive privilege only applies to serving presidents 2) All documents produced in the Whitehouse are property of the national archive and the ***current*** president 3) The Nation archive DID request the return of the documents in full several times, Trump refused t give them back 4) Trump is not being persecuted, he is being legitimately investigated 5) Making threats and trying to blackmail the current administration with veiled hints of civil war is not making his assholiness look any better.

CALIGINOUS - Adjective…dark, dim, or misty; obscure or murky.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 23, 2022:
This really fascinating In Roman history Gaius Julius Caesar Augustus Germanicus the emperor, was known commonly and eventually historically as Caligula, the common explanation for this is that as a child he often marched with his father's legion and became known as "Little Boots" Caliga (boot)Ula (small) However the nick name came about only after Caligula's father Germanicus died under very mysterious circumstance during the Antioch campaign, while sleeping in a tent, he was poisoned with his only son present, who saw nothing. Though the main suspect for the assassination was Piso, on the promise of becoming emperor and the chance to clear the name of his disgraced father. However later Caligula claimed he ploted to kill emperor Tiberius and that this would not be his first assassination. This makes me thing the nick name Caligula may have been a pun on Caligo (dark, obscured) and Caliga (boot)
I need to post this often.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 22, 2022:
This exactly why first past the post democracy is a deeply flawed system, as only those who participate in voting are considered to exist. In a true democracy the votes cast on either side must be considered as a percentage of the entire potential electorate with a win being decided on a situation where 50% of the entire electorate + 1.5%. The UK Brexit referendum was a prize example of this The potential electorate was approximately 55,000,000 17,000,000 (approx) voted to leave 31% (rounded down) 16,500, 000 (approx) voted to remain 30% (rounded down) 21,000,000 (approx) abstained 39% (rounded down) Meaning approximately 69% of the population of 4 countries were completely ignored for either disagreeing or refusing to participate in a total farce. Even if we count only those who did vote 50% voted to leave 49.25% voted to remain Meaning 0.75% of those who chose to vote made the decision for 100% of the total population This we call democracy.

A Jig was actually a device for making rings used by silversmiths and goldsmiths, and when we all had open coal fire places in the Victorian days (up to the 1970s) a poker was the standard tool for keeping the coal burning. Therefore if you were a dishonest person making rings from poor quality brass and passing them off as gold, you would use your poker as a makeshift jig, to bend bronze or brass wire in to rings over an open fire instead of a forge. Hence Jiggery pokery

Arcane adjective known or understood by very few; mysterious; secret.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 19, 2022:
Derived from the ancient middle eastern (and eventually Hebrew) word Arc ( box for holding secret things) which developed further through Latin arcanus and arca "secret, hidden, private, concealed," and "a box for secrets" respectively to the Greek arkos a defended place and Ark ( as in ark-angels) meaning a defender In Europe in the 15th century Arcana became a word for the major and minor cards in a Tarot deck simply meaning mystery (in the original sense of something unknown) and eventually all magical, mystic or occult knowledge which in itself became known as the arcane.
VOLUBLE.
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 19, 2022:
I am afraid you are mistaken volvere is the root of words such as revolve and revolution However Volubility, volume and voluble come from two Latin words volumen derived from Vol meaning a "wish" or "by the will" of, meaning a written or spoken contract and the Latin word voluminosus meaning capacity being also translated as volume (or voluminous) meaning space taken up by the mass of an object, or the space inside of an object causing an echo. Confusion of these two second definitions combine to give us VOL as a measurement of the level or capacity of sound The confusion with volvere comes from the English translation of volumen as the noun "a Volume" meaning a book written on parchment that was typically rolled up

LenHazell53 comments on Aug 18, 2022:
I think you are right. In reality a good marriage, family and life well lived can be far more satisfying the the desire and hunt to attain them. I have been happily married for over thirty years now, and I am both happy and content with my life, have achieved most everything I ever set out to find and achieve. However western society, especially US social conventions continually pounds people from birth with the myth that the grass is always greener, success is not success if you do not get everything that you want, that not winning is utter failure and that being satisfied is a weakness. Hence soaring debts and divorce rates, the desire to stay young forever, elective surgery and medication use and the constant depression caused by always wanting the new and the better and having to struggle for it lest you be found wanting. All for the unwitting financial benefit of the peddlers of the problem myth and the easy solution A little ambition is fine, the writer who wants to write a another story, the artist who struggle for greater realism, the musician seeing a more beautiful melody, the parent wanting happiness for their child. This is perhaps the sentiment and "wise desire"Tennessee Williams was attempting to convey?

Interesting that they took an expired passport, that would indicate that someone wants to know where Trumpty was on a specific date at some time in the past, when that passport was still valid. Perhaps on a visit to a friends private Island for example, when certain other crimes and peccadilloes, already established in other trials of interest took place, and where nasty dirty little crimes have been proved to have been committed? A private island where a series of despicable crimes against children, all having involved a known lady associate of Mr Trump, a woman who also happened to be the daughter of one late good friends of the former president and the former lover of another late good friend of the former president, a woman who was I believe recently found guilty.

Yes this is horrific. It seems the "help line" was not for victims at all, but to "advise" or rather order bishops and stake presidents on how to "deal" with allegations. I have read of one case on Ex-Mormon reddit where a woman complained she was assaulted by her bishop to the help line and was excommunicated for allowing herself to unchaste and for tempting the bishop in to conduct unbecoming by wearing immodest and inappropriate clothing to church. They are a fucking nightmare, and about to be curried under a blizzard of litigation for people who thanks to the AP now know they are not alone, apparently even Rusty the prophet is under investigation for alleged historical abuse.
LIONISE ( in USA LIONIZE).
LenHazell53 comments on Aug 9, 2022:
Just to be pedantic LIONISE or LIONIZE are completely different words (except in the USA where they don't give a toss about etymology, philology or lexicography) -ise. is a noun suffix, occurring in loanwords from French, indicating quality, condition, or function Therefore to Lionise is as you say, using Lion as a synonym for King (He was Lionised to the point of apotheosis) -ize is on the other hand added to adjectives (and sometimes nouns being used as adjectives) to form transitive verbs (a verb that requires an object to receive the action) with the general senses “to render, make”  To lionize therefore is to make someone subject to the action of a lion (Early Christians were Lionized and were very quickly killed and eaten up) .

In Mar 2014 an aquaintance of mine Tom Phillips sued the LDS church in the UK for "untrue or misleading" teachings, including historical lies, unprovable claims and extortion with threat of Hell. 4 lawyers and District Judge Elizabeth Roscoe all signed affidavits saying the claim was legitimate, and it proceed to Westminster Magistrates' Court, before a circuit court judge, for a ruling on wether or not the case should be put before a district crown court and Jury trial. The leaders LDS church refused to attend and instead sent a locally retained law firm to represent them. This in spite of a subpoena sent to the then church president and prophet Thomas S Monson, who was famously pictured going to a basket ball at BYU game instead. The summons alleged that, between February 2008 and December 2013, Mr Monson had induced payment (10% of gross annual income) an "annual tithe" based on teachings which were untrue including that: A) there was no deaths on Earth before 6,000 years ago B) Joseph Smith translated the Book Of Mormon from ancient gold plates and it is historically accurate C) Native Americans are descended from Israelites who left Jerusalem in 600BC How ever and ill advisedly in my opinion Tom included D) all humans are descended from two people who lived approximately 6,000 years ago This final claim proved the undoing of the case as it was not limited to just LDS teachings. The procedural judge ruled against the complaint, stating openly in the summing up that any judge who found against the widely held belief in the Adam and Eve Story and by extrapolation the entire Bible, would not only be being highly offensive to a majority of the population, but would irreversibly damaging to their own credibility and professional reputation as a litigator and as a sane human being. The Judge Mr. Riddle ruled the attempted prosecution as "tenuous", with no chance of ever proceeding to a crown court criminal trial "To convict," he claimed "a jury would need to be sure that the religious teachings of the Mormon Church are untrue or misleading, No judge in a secular court in England and Wales would allow that issue to be put to a jury." And "a court decision to pursue the case would have had "awkward implications" for other religions. for ruling against the literal truth of Adam and Eve could have been seen as the start of a slippery slope" of legal challenges to all religious beliefs." A path apparently that the UK legal establishment had no desire to go down since religion has long held under international law a literally "privileged" (meaning existing under private law) status.

Uri Gellar has been debunked as a simple magician for almost for almost 50 years and is still pulling this shit? He is not even being original this is basically the plot of Whitley Strieber's 1983 novel Black Magic, where the US government is attacked physically by Russian telepathy to prevent WW3

Same old rabble rousing, jingoistic, populist, racist shit as last time. Blame everyone, offer no solutions but hint that you can fix it all with a magic wand if the people call you back, reluctantly to office under the banner of Saviour, Messiah and tyrant military general. And guess what, the red neck, gun toting shoot first think later or never, shit stomping bare foot brigade of brain transplant donors are slurping it up like Jim Jones coolaid

What have you learned in life?
LenHazell53 comments on Jul 31, 2022:
I have learned People are on the whole stupid, greed and not worth pissing on even if they are on fire Life is misery interspersed with moment of lesser misery we call happiness That the world is out to kill you, sting you, burn you, bite you, pickle you and infect you with unspeakable disease and leaves endless piles of shit in your way to just slow you down for the fun of it Life at first seems endless and full of promise, then it is too slow and full of frustration, then it has gone by too fast and has left you little but sorrow and disappointment. Knowledge offers only one consolation and that is impermanence guaranteed by the inevitability of death, any comfort from which that might be derived is spoiled by fucking Christians knocking on your door when you are trying to have a quiet wank and promising that in fact you will be forcefully rewarded by an eternity of sucking up to their maniac god or being tortured by his sadistic side kick, until the day we are all brought back to life eternal with no genitals to distract us from being better at fucking religion.
Whatever floats your boat...?

Does he mean he is sorry they survived and did not keep their mouth shut, or he is deeply sorry for the fact they are all going to burn in Hell for turning on the church and god's representative on earth?
I can't wait for it to happen.
