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.

<Pastor Hillary Wants to Preach to You>

Good grief.

This is the title of a recent article <Ben Shapiro> wrote for the National Review, analyzing the appalling blasphemy of <Hill Dawg>.

Apparently, she has decided to become some kind of snake oil selling preacher of sorts, since she can't be president.

An excerpt: <"Leftists like to hijack religious-speak in order to deliver their unpalatable <<<statism>>> in the guise of godliness. Their program is a godless theocracy that worships centralized power, and they understand that Americans are more likely to support such a theocracy with a false image of the Divine Countenance at the center.">

  playground player: <jessicafischerqueen> Meanwhile, Rev. Shill-Lady's book about St. Hillary being the new Esther had to be recalled by the publisher due to flagrant plagiarism.

Does this woman understand the Third Commandment--"Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain"? Uh... no.

But I probably won't have to worry about stuff like that soon, because I'm going to be rich!

https://leeduigon.com/2017/12/13/th...

Yep, the daughter of an Ivory Coast warlord wants to put her daddy's $27.5 million in my bank and then come over here and settle down with me. I can hardly believe my good fortune!

(The link probably won't work, but <Mrs. PGP> says sure, she knows how to clear the cache and cookies etc.--but it will cause most of our passwords to disappear. Technology marches on.)

((Holy cow! The link does work now, after all. I must be on a roll. Hey, don't mess with a guy who has a warlord for a father-in-law!))

Dec-13-17  optimal play: <playground player> You know what I find most contemptible about Leftists?

Their intolerance!

For example, they can't even abide being asked a question which may cast aspersions upon their own flawless image of themselves.

This especially now appears to be the case with Canadians...

<Canada’s Free Speech Wars>

http://www.crisismagazine.com/2017/...

<In Canada, the assaults on free speech continue like clockwork>

Even worse than their intolerance is their hypocrisy in pretending to support free speech but then seek to avoid uncomfortable questions and even erase all trace of anybody who they suspect of not acting in a sufficiently obsequious manner towards them.

Anyway, we'll be on holidays soon so in case I don't get another chance, I will take this opportunity to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Here is a contemporary Aussie Christmas song which I hope you enjoy...

<Lee> Congratulations! I was invited to become an Ethiopian Queen if I helped them do some banking, but if I have my maths right you still outrank me.

I'm happy you can post links again- the good <Mrs. PGP> is correct, but I'd add that you only lose your saved passwords if you delete <cookies>. If you just delete <cache> your passwords remain saved at your favorite websites.

Protip: apologies if you've already done this, but it's a good idea to write down the web addresses and your handle/password for each site on a piece of paper, and store it in a safe place.

I almost let <Hill Dawg> ruin my Christmas but no way.

Like everyone else, she reaps what she sows.

Two (2) of my American colleagues here in Korea are staunch democrat voters but they didn't vote for <Clinton>.

Why?

Because she is appalling, almost beyond comprehension. And yet she's mystified why she lost the election.

A TRAINED MONKEY would have had a better chance to win.

It's a fact!

  playground player: <optimal play> This was bound to happen, once Canada's ruling class--and all the ruling class in all the Western countries--abandoned Christianity and tried to base a social order on radical moral uncertainty: of which "gay marriage" and the "transgender" insanity are the outstanding examples.

This is how, in America, we wind up with Democrats demanding prosecution of "Climate Change Denial" and forcing Christians to take active parts in "gay weddings," or else.

The question is, can this ever be reversed? Can we ever get our free speech back?

As Homer once put it, "Not without a great deal of sweat."

Regardless of the bad news that permeates our current history, the good news is--Merry Christmas, mate! And thanks for the song; I posted it on my blog this morning.

<jessicafischerqueen> We have only begun to learn just how incredibly awful Hillary Clinton is. She and Billy-boy corrupt everything they touch: and they have touched a lot of our government.

Again, I wonder if it can ever be reversed. The Swamp will fight hard and dirty for its privileges.

If we have gained anything whatsoever, beyond enhancing a reputation for inane foolishness, it's not apparent to me.

<Lee> I'm attempting to remain calm since I really do want to enjoy *my* CHRISTmas, but really-

Where did these people get the curious notion that "freedom of worship" means that you are obligated to destroy the main faith that your original population observed?

Does this mean that if ISIS folks end up embracing "freedom of worship" that they will have to stop observing Muslim holy days?

Well that's exactly what it means.

This clearly insane definition of "diversity" is a form of cultural suicide. Do people know this but they are afraid to mention it because they might lose their job or be hauled before a Stalinist tribunal?

It's impossible that all of them are simply plain stupid. Some stupid, some scared, I think.

Which is significantly worse.

<Lee> As an experiment, I have just changed the title of my forum.

It used to say <Tottenham Hotspur> but now it says <Merry CHRISTmas!>

Let's see if anyone at cg.com "blows the whistle" on me, and if so, let's see what our webmaster, a self-avowed Christian, does about it, if anything.

Testing, testing...

<Lee> If I'm not mistaken, this video was filmed by <Eddy Christmas> in <Christmastown, Christmas County, West Christminia>:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XI2...

If they tried to do this in front of a house in Vancouver, even if they owned the freaking house, they would have been arrested and charged.

With what, I don't even want to know. Maybe for the crime of "caroling."

When we where kids we caroled like mad every Christmas and we never got arrested.

I didn't get where I am today by getting arrested for caroling.
