23 On Mondays, the VIA Family goes out to dinner, as Mrs VIA works late, and it's a nice break from routine.

Interesting conversation with the Wait Staff about current events.
Staff is mostly college age to 27 year old females.
Things that I learned ...

1. Bruce Jenner is a fool, and should never have received the bravery award.

2. Hunters contribute more towards the health of lion populations then many people realize.

3. Liberals are crazy, and their worldview is full of contradictions.

Maybe I didn't really ""learn" those things last night. But I sure was told those things by several young women who one would automatically assume to be liberal due to their age/sex/student status.

32 Jeb isn't going to win Iowa and probably loses in New Hampshire and South Carolina.

At which point he drops out. He has to win one of those three, don't you think? South Carolina might be his best bet, unless Ms. Graham drops out first (in which case Rubio or Walker probably takes it, if polling can be believed).

We watched Expendables 3 last night...

There was a sincere, non-comedic moment in the movie where Benghazi was mentioned. I was stunned. It was an acknowledgement that there were men (aka patriots) that tried to help. You rarely see this.

63 I go look at several used cars, ask for CarFax on each. I only look at models with which I am familiar - either having owned another or rented one.

Then I send the salesguy an email with an offer on each contingent on an inspection (or a no questions asked return policy for a month). I give them 2 weeks. I have never had a dealer not agree to at least one of my offers - usually several.

Oddly, I get better prices on used cars from new car dealers, than little guys.

88 So far, I have had pretty good luck in meat world with renaming the CBF to the Southern Pride flag.

People claim that skinheads have made it into a racist symbol of hate.
I explain that it has been culturally re-appropriated back to a reflection of pride, not hate.

And usually they say something like "You can do that?".

And I tell them that America is a country where we can make anything into anything we want.

Usually it gets their brains twisted into knots, and they fall over.

Posted by: FireHorse at August 04, 2015 07:43 AM (2gwcc)

My daughter wrote a rant about how no one flipping burgers should expect to make a living wage. Especially when that living wage is higher than what you get for the degree you are studying for. This is while she had a job flipping burgers.

I stand by my plan that colleges should be forced to index tuition based on the minimum wage.

Yesterday Ted Nugent was interviewed on a local station and the interviewer asked about Cecil the lion and Teds view. Ted said he had been asked often and always said he would answer if the interviewer could tell him the identities of the Marines killed in Chatanooga. So far they have only been able to tell him how many Marines wee shot. He said that although they probably don't know where Zimbabwe is, they care more about a lion than Marines who were murdered in their own country.

Third party is an option. No law says a Democrat or Republican has to win, you know. It's been done before. When the Whigs got stupid and too cowardly to confront the major issues of the day, a funny looking man in a tall hat and his buddies just pulled a name out of the history book and ran with it. A few years later, they were a national force, and he's on the $5.00 bill now...

199 I didn't get a chance to listen to the entire C-SPAN event last night, but I liked the format. It wasn't much different than a debate because during debates, master debaters talk about what they want to anyway, regardless of the original question. The best part of debates is having someone bitch slap the media, or each other. Everyone is waiting for that one sound bite ala Reagan and the microphone.

Regarding Jeb!, his answer on what to do with ISIS was nothing more than what the current administration is doing, which is obviously not enough by a long shot. And Lindsey Grahamnesty--almost every time a defense related question comes up, he invokes John McCain's name. I'm starting to think they are having an affair. Just because they've never been seen in coitus, doesn't mean they aren't bumping uglies.

207 If the Republicans put JEB up, they're playing to lose. His record in Florida really wasn't all that great, the state's economy was a giant nothingburger that died when the housing bubble popped. It hadn't recovered when I left two years ago, and it's why I moved to Texas. I'll probably never go back except to visit family (until I can convince them to follow me out), thanks to him.

Yeah, the whole clash of civilizations rhetoric is pretty wonderful, and I've been calling the Left "the usual crowd that hates everything about Western Civilization" for years... but JEB will not win the general election. Any Democrat will beat him, and whether or not there's a third party candidate in the race.

I still hold that Rubio will win the nominee sans some catastrophe.

I found it interesting, what was said in that Real Clear Politics link I posted above (that I shamelessly stole from HotAir like the Ace that I am):

Meanwhile, what damage is Trump doing to the party now? Republicans had hopes that a primary field starring Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz would present a new face to the Latino community, and help boost their share of Latino vote to where it was when George W. Bush became the only Republican nominee to win the popular vote since 1988.

Trump's antics have overshadowed the field and killed that dream. A recent Univision poll finds only 16 percent of Latinos identify as Republican, even though 32 percent consider themselves conservative -- similar to the electorate as a whole. Latinos aren't turning from the GOP because they're so liberal, but because of immigration rhetoric like Trump's.

O_o

That may be the 3rd stupidest thing I've ever heard.

First off- the reason they're spraying for mosquitoes is because the pests are carriers of diseases which can *kill you.* Even if the chemical were bad for you, "health problems" still indicate that you are, get this, alive.

Dos- the truck driver probably doesn't even see your stupid red flag, and he certainly doesn't have time to turn off the spray and turn it back on special for your house.

Drie- Even if the truck driver *could* turn off the spray for your special-snowflake-ness, because of point 1 that would be *bad.* Those mosquitoes are not going to stay in your yard, you dolt, they're going to fly everywhere - potentially spreading disease across a fairly wide range.

263 "Ditto. It seems we've had an explosion of lost dogs / cats since NextDoor went up for our neighborhood. Three and four of them a day. Also found out my neighbor's wife (heretofore quiet and on waving / headnod / vacation watch terms) is a raving moonbat."

Dude...

We must be neighbors!

I suggested to one woman that they put up "No Mosquito" signs on the perimeter of their property.

Should keep the little blood suckers away, right?

264 I think after 7 years now, we can finally admit that it's all been done on purpose.

He (or his handlers) are not stupid. Everything they've done has had a (sometimes) hidden (as yet) agenda and it was clearly stated by him when he ran for office.

Like all good con artists, what he said could have been taken any number of ways and most everyone took them to mean positive things. (except for some on the right)

Those people were wrong and many of them have yet to even recognize that they were wrong because they're idea of what this country is and should be differs drastically from what you or I do.

What will become increasingly clear even to those who are still unclear is that all that was done and all the resulting "change" has been for the worse and that living in this country is about to become more than just difficult and contentious. It's about to become lethal.

The Fed will time the inflation increase to take place once the new President takes office. They will barely have time to get their cabinet approved by Congress and we will be in deep deep kim chi.

All those who are unclear on who's fault this is will blame the now current administration for all their woes (and there will be many as the belt is tightened).

175 "Who's Rhonda Rousey? "


Ronda Rousey was a US Olympic Judo player who won a bronze medal in the last Olympics, she also won Silver at the world championships before she went into MMA. Her mother was the first American to win a Judo world championship. Ronda's MMA fight with the Brazilian lasted 34 seconds, that is 20 seconds longer than her last title defense took.

After doing a nude photo session for ESPN magazine she was asked by a newsman if she learned anything about herself. Her answer was: "I learned I have a really nice ass, I didn't know that."

274 Did anyone see the commercial last night on Fox (network, not NEWS) for Republicans? Not for a candidate - just the Republican Party in general.

OMG - it was embarrassing and pathetic. It put me in mind of the Christine O'Donnell commercial saying "I'm not a witch!"

It was cringe worthy. Basically said, "We don't hate you! We love everyone! We want everyone to succeed! Remember, we don't hate you!" It was the most bizarre thing I've ever seen.

Damn.

275 Chi: Apparently, the guy is supposed to turn off the spray as he drives by your 50 ft wd lot...

Even if that worked, isn't it kinda like what I think y'call herd immunity? You get to feel all green for not having your yard sprayed, but get the benefit of the spraying of the neighborhood. Have everybody put out no-spray flags, and see what happens.

278 So the worthless GOPe in the Senate can't pass a cloture vote to defund PP.

What's worse is that an amendment was put up for the highway bill (you know, one of those "poison pills" on a "must pass" bill, like the Democrats use all the time?), and Yertle wouldn't even bring the amendment up for a vote.

Had it come up for a vote, it would have passed - attaching to the highway bill. And then the highway bill would either have been killed by Democrats (which a real opposition party could use to say the Democrats don't want to fund "needed infrastructure,") or vetoed by the President (again: see possible vectors for a real opposition party).

Our entire family, including the family dog will be at Ocean City between XXX and XXX.

Can anyone suggest things to do?


I responded privately that one thing would be to remove anything valuable from their home, now that they gave any crook their "Hey Look, our home is completely unoccupied" schedule.

Kids trying to take care of Fido and he gets out of the house/back yard. Then (because they're kids), they're afraid mom and dad will be mad that Fido got out, so they don't say anything until mom and dad notice that Fido didn't bark at the mailman this morning.

Depending on the size of the dogs, coyotes. It's time.
It's the time of the season where their food source is running out, out in the woods and they move into the suburbs looking for food.
That or their is a dog fighting operation.

So, arrogant incompetence or devious malice?

Bringing up Ubuntu in recovery mode and running grub brought my computer back to life, running 8.1 and ubuntu again. Go figure.
