NJ--no rating. Favorites, Morphy, Marshall, Anderssen. Played a lot as a teen, then let it go for 40 years. Trying to reconstitute myself as a chess player.

Meanwhile, let this forum serve as a refuge from wild-eyed loony leftism. Here there will be no admiration for Hugo Chavez, Castro, or any of the other tin-pot dictators admired by chess players from the safety of freedom-loving Western democracies. Here will be found a premise that most of the nations of the world today are governed by Godless fools. Ours, too, unfortunately.

I was also going to say some uncomplimentary things about Queen Pawn games, the Sicilian and the French Defenses, Semi-Slav games, and a few other chess matters. But as those are purely questions of personal taste, I have chosen to leave them alone.

Since setting up this forum, I have also had several novels published: "Bell Mountain," "The Cellar Beneath the Cellar," and "The Thunder King." For more information about them (and me), visit my website, http://leeduigon.com/

Update, much delayed: my fourth book, "The Last Banquet," came out last year, and my fifth, "The Fugitive Prince," I expect to be published sometime this Spring. For book covers and free sample chapters, visit my blog.

Update again: "The Fugitive Prince" is out now and the next project is "The Palace." Editing is well advanced, but we're still waiting for a cover.

Update: "The Palace" is in print now along with No. 7, "The Glass Bridge," with No. 8, "The Temple," waiting in the wings. The first seven are all available via amazon.com.

Update: No. 8, "The Temple," and No.9, "The Throne," are now in print, with No. 10, "The Silver Trumpet,"due for release any day now.

  thegoodanarchist: < playground player: <Esteemed Colleagues> I'm getting awful tired of the nooze.>

I started watching the news before I started elementary school. This is no exaggeration.

When my Dad got home from work he would turn on CBS Evening News, sit in his recliner, and watch. Sometimes he would snack on an apple or sip a Bud while doing so.

I would sit on the floor to the right of the recliner and watch along with Dad.

Mom used to subscribe to multiple news magazines. We had Time and Newsweek delivered to the house, plus a daily paper. I would skim these periodicals and read whatever looked interesting.

I used to pride myself on being better informed, more up on the news, than anyone else I knew (except for some of the people in my family. Both sides of my family are loaded with intellectuals, brilliant folks).

I started picking up on left-wing bias in the media in the late 1980s. It was probably present before then, but that's when I started to notice it.

But still I persevered in my effort to stay informed and up-to-date. Rarely consciously thinking of it as a civic duty, more along the lines as another proof of my intellectual superiority over the average man (or woman).

This continued for decades. Then Trump won. And the media (mainstream) stopped all pretense of remaining "objective" and went to war against our own president!

I don't think it an exaggeration to say that they've been waging a soft coup against Trump since the 2016 election result was known. The MSM's only claims to objectivity are their own lies. <Mr. President, Will you stop calling us the enemy of the people?> (I hope not, because it's true!)

Personally, I think America as "land of the free" is doomed. But Trump has at least postponed it 4 years, maybe 8.

Since the soft coup attempt became clear and undeniable in 2017, I have removed MSM almost completely from my life. Maybe 5 minutes a day, but many days not at all. And just to get the big picture.

I don't believe anyone can watch only MSM and be objectively informed. It has become active brainwashing. If this life were forever it would be depressing, but we are mortal. So all I feel is sadness for future generations, who will live as slaves because left-wing idiots such as the ones on Rogoff are selling their birthright.

And they aren't even receiving porridge for it. They are selling it in exchange for lies.

<CBC reinstates Baby, It's Cold Outside amid audience reaction>

Also some reinstatements in the States

Hats off to Bill Shatner and those like him to not only push back against censorship, but to actually win a few.

  jessicafischerqueen:

Sobering, however, is the refusal of any main stream media (translation progressive Stalinist media) to even acknowledge the Bill Shatner protest in the first place.

If you google <William Shatner slamming Canadian Broadcasting for banning "Baby, It's Cold Outside> The first half dozen links are from "conservative news sources"- Breitbart, Washington Times, Daily Wire and such.

No hits on mainstream (cough Stalinist cough) media groups though.

The problem here is that if the Stalinists succeed in getting more conservative news organizations banned, then 1984 has indeed arrived. Then a story like Bill Shatner's protest simply wouldn't be covered- by anyone.

Next step- Get you fired for it Oh wait that's already here.

Next step- Gulag.

Do you think this is a joke? It isn't.

<Lee> lol "Marxist Literary Theory" I studied that in university, it's been part of the curriculum for ages.

Contribution of Marxist Literary Theory to actual literature = -500

Liberal democracies don't ban Marxist literature <Marx, Engels, Mao, Lenin, Franz Fanon or anyone else>

Marxist states ban bourgeois literature <Solzenitsin, Chekov, Dosotoyevsky, Tolstoy, and other hacks>

In liberal democracies you use free speech to argue against what you don't like.

In Marxist states you just ban, fire, or kill the people who say things you don't like.

When liberal democracies give up free speech they become indistinguishable from Marxist states. Which is what happens when the pigs become men and the men become pigs at the end of "Animal Farm."

  playground player: <thegoodanarchist> Like you, I always read the newspapers when I was a boy. I also used to watch, with my mother, the UN meetings, when they used to be televised live. I remember Khrushchev pounding the table with his shoe. And DeGaulle. My mother used to do DeGaulle imitations.

Later in life I became a newspaper editor and reporter, in the 1970s. Back then, our gang at the press table made it a point of honor to try to report news accurately.

This is gone. Our nooze media are no longer a reliable source of information.

<Jessicafischerqueen> Sobering thoughts. As the Romans so clearly demonstrated, a republic is difficult to maintain. They lost theirs. We could very easily do the same: Democrats work tirelessly toward that goal.

"Border crisis? What border crisis? Why, there's hardly anybody who sees a problem with illegal immigration! Just that handful of White Supremacists who hate everybody!"

  playground player: <Steamed Colleagues> Looniversity of Illinois wants students and staff to rat each other out for "acts of intolerance"--very loosely defined, more campus Stalinism.

https://leeduigon.com/2019/01/12/ca...

You are probably wondering why I illustrated that blog post with a picture of a happy puppy.

Well, Facebook wouldn't let me post it at first--said it violated their "Community Standards." "Community" is another one of those words that can mean virtually anything, when leftids use it. Originally the post was illustrated with the front page of a college noozepaper with the headline, "White Is Over," and a little something about "Your DNA is an abomination" (if you're white).

I chose that photo because it perfectly illustrated the hypocrisy I was talking about. But when I replaced it with a picture of a happy puppy, the Facebook censors let me post the essay. I expect those censors are robots that simply react as programmed.

No more public funds for colleges and universities! Cut off the funding now.

The kampus kops at the Looniversity of Illinois want students to report “acts of intolerance” to their “Bias Assessment and Response Team”

prejudice against or hostility toward a person (or group)>

How ya vehemently gonna hate Trump, and Trump supporters?

It's getting to the point where a, filled with rage liberal, only has throwing Molotov cocktails, at a college campus, when someone with a different opinion shows up.

(Bias response teams don't do Molotov cocktails)

I was kind of expecting "Sex Doll Stamps" to solve that issue.

Using liberal liar lingo:
"Affordable" Sex Dolls.

After all, it's only other people's money.

To get more of the copious quantities of money

gambling, legalizing weed, I would expect prostitution to be next.

If you don't like movies or (holy moly!) comic books with not enough female characters in them, don't shell out any money for them. Surely we don't need a *test* to "measure gender equality in fiction.
