labor day pic.jpg

Good morning Morons. Do you have a 3 day weekend? Hope so. Grab a cup of coffee, tea or Valu-Rite and take a gander at what weird things have been going on.

Please don't run with sharp objects and play well with others here in the open thread.

2 Hmmm. The news people are saying we had an earthquake a little while ago here in KS. I was out taking a walk and didn't feel it.

3 "I was out taking a walk and didn't feel it."


They just mentioned this on the radio here. They say it was a 5.8 on the scale and centered in far northern OK.

5 "A homeless man south of Gainesville died when a tree fell on him, Gov. Rick Scott said. He later took to a Blackhawk helicopter to visit the coastal communities of Cedar Key and Steinhatchee hit hard by the damage from flooding and storm surge that crumpled docks and washed out homes and businesses."

I always wonder when I read sentences structured like that -- did the homeless man reincarnate and climb on the helicopter.?

7 Howdy, Morons!

Yesterday I was reading how earthquakes in Oklahoma were getting fewer and farther between thanks to regulation of groundwater injection.

We just got the biggest quake I've ever felt.* Felt like a train was in the driveway. I went from solid sleep to standing by the front door while it went on. House rattled and shook for maybe as long as fifteen seconds.

7am CDST almost on the dot. Nothing in the news or USGS yet.

*I've felt two other quakes, biggest was something like 4.5, both centered down by Okla City. Just barely felt them, though. This one was either much bigger, or much closer. Or maybe somebody nuked Tulsa.

Daughter and her grandmother are out in California - I guess they sent us a souvenier.

I was looking at headlines. Fox had links to the FBI release under a box titled "Putin says DNC hack a public service" then they had links under that to the Clinton story.

Be that as it may the point was that a major news story, certainly after the hurricane, is being covered up.

24 Agggh! Self-willowed:



Saw "Morgan" yesterday-


To certain extent, the movie covers the same territory as "Ex Machina" -

in a more recognizably action format.

Though the approach is more or less reversed as the plot hinges on information withheld from the audience.

I'm being vague here for anyone who may wish to see it.

Overall, it's well-made and acted. The withheld info is an artificial way to pump up the drama and drive action in an, surprise!, artificial way and makes nonsense of most of the character actions upon reflection.

You'll probably see the big twist a mile away.

Though you will be entertained while the movie's playing.

It's a pretty good nominee for "Feel Bad Movie" of the Year, so beware of that if you're out for a fun date or whatever.

Check it out.

Had the same experience in 2002. It was a 5.0 in the Adirondacks*. Freaked me the heck out.

*It was centered in Ausable Forks.**

**It was actually centered near Ausable Forks. Officially, the epicenter was Black Brook, NY.***

***The precise epicenter was actually a place called Swastika, NY, but they just said it was Black Brook.

Not only a 3-day weekend, but a whole week off work. Up in the mountains with cool fall weather. T-storms and steady rain much of the night, dog jumped up on the bed with us when the thunder started. Eerie fog this morning, we rarely see fog at 8500 ft.

43 The sad thing is that some people have convinced themselves that it's OK to lodge a protest vote by voting for Johnson. If there was ever an election year for NO ONE TO WASTE THEIR VOTE, it's this year. Putting your fingers in your ears and screaming LALALALA to avoid hearing why they should do some good with their vote by making it actually count against Hillary is not the action of someone whose opinion I will ever respect again.

44 Good morning, Sherry! USGS is calling it 5.6. I might report it, but if they felt it in Houston & St Lou, I'm thinking my report won't mean much.

Our old concrete house seems to have withstood the shaking, although I had to wonder for a while as it was creaking and rattling.

Have a friend in Tulsa who had bow-koo repairs needed after that 4.5 a couple of years ago. Bet there'll be some damage from this one!

To tell if it's raining or windy, I have to go look out a window, it's that quiet.

https://www.youtube.com/watch? v=iPJpoLE8mDM


I am a man of great influence
And educated to a high degree
I came when small, from Donnegal
And me cousin Seamus came with me.
On the city road I was situated
In a lodging house with my brother Dan
'Til by perseverance I elevated
And I went to the front like a solid man.


So, come with me and I'll trait ye daycent
Set ye down and I will fill your can
And on the street, all the friends I meet
Says "There goes Muldoon, he's a solid man!"


At any party or at a raffle
I always go with them invited guests
And conspicuous as the great Lord Mayor
I wear a nosegay on my chest
And when called upon to address the meeting
With no regard for click or clan
I read the Constitution with great elocution
Because you see I am a solid man

Once you get into the wealthy areas on 95 south of DC it slows to a crawl. 70 mph speed limit, bumper to bumper, crawling along.

I guess that is why there are 10, 000, 000 more people working in government than manufacturing.

75 44 Good morning, Sherry! USGS is calling it 5.6. I might report it, but if they felt it in Houston & St Lou, I'm thinking my report won't mean much.
Posted by: mindful webworker - movin' & shakin' at September 03, 2016 08:43 AM (19RKp)


Go ahead and report it! It's fun.

I live in Pennsylvania, so I don't often get a chance to report earthquakes. I felt the one in Virginia that was 5.6 or 5.8 a few years ago. I was sitting in my car at work taking a smoke break when the car started swaying. It felt exactly like when you're sitting in the center turn lane waiting to make a left turn and a truck zooms by, only it lasted for several seconds. The USGS got thousands of data points from that quake all over the East Coast.

Once upon a time, I was sitting in a truck waiting for the others to come out of the bait store.

Two of the guys snuck up on me and started shaking the truck really hard.

Couldn't figure out how they were shaking it that hard and still ducking so I couldn't see them.

Then I noticed the fishing store sign swinging...

130 Questions for the FBI:

If Hillary Clinton is not guiilty of mishandling classified information, how come the contents of her email haven been heavily redacted, required months of State Department labor to review prior to release, and there remain items that have not been released, even to the FBI and Congress, due to the classified nature of the content?

If information is deemed so confidential that no one in the American public, Congress, or the FBI is permitted to see it and what is released comes only after months of reviews and court orders;

1) How can any reasonable person conclude that it was appropriate or proper for this information ever to be present on and/ or distributed via a personal email server located in a private residence and mananged exclusively by 3rd parties not associated with or cleared by the government?

2) How can one conclude that there was no intent when setting up such a system required extraordinary time, effort, and investment that would have been completely unnecessary if Clinton simply utilized goverment resources already in place?

3) How can one conclude that there was no intent when extraordinary effort to render both the data and hardware permanently inaccessible by any means occurred only after it became public that the server existed and an investigation was likely to occur, despite the fact that both Clinton and her staff where notified, months earlier and prior to her leaving office, to turn over all records and information?

4) Since the relevant statutes are explicitly written in such a way that intent is neither relevant to the determination of a violation of the statutes, nor is it an affirmative defense, why was this the only reason offered for the FBI's decision to recommend against indictment after all evidence and other statements by the FBI conclude that information was handled "carelessly"?

I have never been so terrified in my life. Pieces of buildings were falling on me and then everything was on fire. I had no idea what to do or where to go. The hotel made us sleep in the street. I couldn't call out to my family. I hate San Francisco and will never ever go back.

150 Dear Congress:

During the course of your own investigations of questions regarding Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server during her tenure as Secretary of State and even prior to the recent release of FBI notes and materials related to their investigation, it was made explicitly clear that:

1) Hillary Clinton and her staff went to extraordinary effort to first establish a personal server for official email (despite official systems being readily available)
2) Contrary to public and official statements by Clinton and her staff, this server contained tens of thousands of emails with infomation so classified that it required months of State Department review prior to release, the infomation that has been released has been heavily redacted due to national security interests, and some information has not been released even to Congress nor the FBI because neither is cleared highly enough to view it, even following court orders mandating the release of the records.
3) The statutes in question explicitly preclude intent as a defense nor require intent in order to prosecute, yet, despite the FBI's own findings and statement that it is clear that classified information was handled "carelessly" and not according to requirements set forth under the relevant statutes, "intent" is the sole reason put forward for the FBI's decision not to seek indictment

Given these facts and the fact that Congress itself verified this information in the course of it's own hearings, why has there been absolutely zero effort made to sopoena and question the people directly involved in this matter and pursue Congressional action to enforce the law, removed those who have failed to follow and/ or enforce the law, pursue any other means of holding anyone accountable for violations of the law, nor preclude such individuals from continuing to receive classified information and continue in and/ or pursue goverment office as is required under the law when it is determined that violations have occurred, regardless of intent?

I had to look that word up. I am probably one of the most well-read people in the US and I didn't know what that word means.


When I went to a "professional writing course" given by a professor from a local college and hired by our company he told us to NEVER use such words in any report or essay.

168 THEN:
In May 2007, during a Rainbow/PUSH Coalition protest outside a suburban Chicago gun shop, Pfleger was accused of threatening the life of the owner, John Riggio. The Illinois State Rifle Association released a tape where Pfleger was heard telling the assembled crowd, "He's the owner of Chuck's. John Riggio. R-i-g-g-i-o. We're going to find you and snuff you out... you know you're going to hide like a rat. You're going to hide but like a rat we're going to catch you and pull you out." Pfleger later claimed his use of the phrase "snuff you out" was misinterpreted.

NOW:
On Wednesday, a march for peace turned into a rally in hopes of turning the tide against the skyrocketing murders and shootings in Chicago.

"In August so far we've had 470 people shot, that's more than 15 people a day shot in Chicago," said Father Michael Pfleger of St. Sabina Church.

The violence numbers are outrageous. More than 2800 people have been shot in Chicago this year, and nearly as many people have been murdered by the end of August as there were people killed in all of last year.

Father Michael Pfleger is outraged. He wants the situation treated like a natural disaster had hit the city.

"I'm asking Governor Rauner, call a state of emergency for the city of Chicago," Pfleger said.

Wentz has upside, but is hardly a sure thing. Goff is, well, he's never going to be a star. He could be good, but he's not going to blow the league up.


Still, for you bettors, don't pick the Eagles this year, nor the Vikings, nor the Rams. If any of those teams make the playoffs this year I will eat somebody's hat. I don't have any hats.

It seems that this equation:

The 'reason' why the solution is not what you think it is, is because of a, yes, you guessed it, a new rule. Well, supposedly not a new rule, but a rule change that supposedly goes back to 1917. But many people, including myself, were not aware of this new old rule change. And I'm not 100 years old.

That's not really true.

When I was working on the oil rigs in the Gulf,

there was a little scrawny guy working there who had the longest dick you've ever seen.

How do I know?

Dude always and I mean, always had that thing outside his pants every chance he got.

Seemed like every time you turned a corner...there he was taking a pee with his horsedick laid on top of the handrail and him standing a few inches away with his hands on his hips.

I'm pretty sure everybody in his town had at one time or another had seen his wang.

He was pretty scrawny and squirrely looking but those who knew him claimed that he got laid all the time...what with the constant advertising and word of mouth I guess.

I suppose the downside there was that he could probably never find a gal able to handle the whole thing short of a giantess.

266 Long dong squirrely man

Well, in Sunday School, they told us the parable of the Talents. Back in olden times, God gave a man a talent, and the fellow was so afraid of losing it, having it stolen from him, that he took his talent home and buried it in the backyard.

God was very angry, that the man did not use the talent he had been given, and God took the talent away and gave it to another man.

The moral of the Parable was that God expects you to use the talent you have been given; long tongue, long dong, or the ability to troll people on the internet and make them think.

So, what ever your talent is, use it, or God will be angry and take your talent away from you and give it to someone who will use it.

At least, that is the way I remember it.

272 A Chinese official confronted U.S. President Barack Obama's national security adviser on the tarmac on Saturday prompting the Secret Service to intervene, an unusual altercation as China implements strict controls ahead of a big summit.

The stakes are high for China to pull off a trouble-free G20 summit of the world's top economies, its highest profile event of the year, as it looks to cement its global standing and avoid acrimony over a long list of tensions with Washington.

Shortly after Obama's plane landed in the eastern city of Hangzhou, a Chinese official attempted to prevent his national security adviser Susan Rice from walking to the motorcade as she crossed a media rope line, speaking angrily to her before a Secret Service agent stepped between the two.

ADVERTISING

inRead invented by Teads

Rice responded but her comments were inaudible to reporters standing underneath the wing of Air Force One. It was unclear if the official, whose name was not immediately clear, knew that Rice was a senior official and not a reporter.

The same official shouted at a White House press aide who was instructing foreign reporters on where to stand as they recorded Obama disembarking from the plane.

"This is our country. This is our airport," the official said in English, pointing and speaking angrily with the aide.

The U.S. aide insisted that the journalists be allowed to stand behind a rope line, and they were able to record the interaction and Obama's arrival uninterrupted, typical practice for U.S. press traveling with the president.

A White House spokesman and China's Foreign Ministry both did not respond immediately to requests for comment.

The altercation occurred out of sight of Obama, who greeted ambassadors and other officials before the presidential motorcade pulled away with Rice.

The incident is an illustration of the image-conscious ruling Communist Party's efforts to control the media as its seeks to orchestrate what it hopes will be a flawless event.

China has taken extensive security measures in preparation for the G20 summit opening on Sunday.

On Saturday, many roads and shops in Hangzhou were deserted and shuttered in the usually bustling city with a population of 9 million.

ALSO IN WORLD NEWS

U.S., China ratify Paris climate deal, setting stage for G20
Turkish tanks roll into Syria, opening new line of attack
Obama, in China for G20 summit, expects 'candid' talks with Xi
South Korea's president calls on Russia, others, to pressure Pyongyang over nuclear program
The Chinese government has broad control over domestic media and prevents many foreign media outlets from publishing in the country, including by blocking their websites.

Obama has raised issues of freedom of the press on previous visits to China, which insists that media must follow the party line and promote "positive propaganda".

Foreign reporters are often physically prevented from covering sensitive stories, but altercations involving foreign government officials are rare.

Rice met Chinese dissidents before her last trip to China in late July, when she held talks with President Xi Jinping and other senior officials.

I think they are infected by D.C.itis. It is a disease common to low lying East Coast swampland. It's commonly carried by tics, especially poly-tics. Symptons include: strong desire to be invited to cocktail parties and feeling superior to your peers. The only known cure is an extended stay at Adult 'Fun" Camps.

Those calls for less police come from the people causing the problems. Black rent seekers who make a living off of agitating blacks and screaming at the MFM.

Yeah, I know I'm just a raycissty rayciss, but it breaks my heart when I see the vignettes played out over and over, the neighborhood gathered in the street, maybe a sheet over a body, or a teddy bear memorial on the sidewalk. Mothers, grandmothers, sisters, partners, and the children. Especially the children, playing their part in the tableau: Drive by, 1 dead, 2 in hospital, critical condition.


The ripple effect is vast. Hate, anger, dread, sadness. People live there every day, all year, decade after decade, raising a new generation to take part in the play.


And yet somehow, white people did this? I'm sorry, I go home at night, to my home, my neighborhood, my family, my life. I didn't CAUSE any of this! And as long as the so-called leaders get to ooze up to the podiums and point fingers at me, and remove ALL blame from the people living in those conditions, it will continue.

292 Well, in Sunday School, they told us the parable of the Talents. Back in olden times, God gave a man a talent, and the fellow was so afraid of losing it, having it stolen from him, that he took his talent home and buried it in the backyard.

God was very angry, that the man did not use the talent he had been given, and God took the talent away and gave it to another man.

The moral of the Parable was that God expects you to use the talent you have been given; long tongue, long dong, or the ability to troll people on the internet and make them think.



I knew thou wert a hard man, reaping where thou hast not sown, so I buried my long dong in the ground. Here is that which is thine.

7 Howdy, Morons!

Yesterday I was reading how earthquakes in Oklahoma were getting fewer and farther between thanks to regulation of groundwater injection.

We just got the biggest quake I've ever felt.* Felt like a train was in the driveway. I went from solid sleep to standing by the front door while it went on. House rattled and shook for maybe as long as fifteen seconds.

7am CDST almost on the dot. Nothing in the news or USGS yet.

*I've felt two other quakes, biggest was something like 4.5, both centered down by Okla City. Just barely felt them, though. This one was either much bigger, or much closer. Or maybe somebody nuked Tulsa.

Daughter and her grandmother are out in California - I guess they sent us a souvenier.

------------

The quake started 4 miles deep as are most of the quakes we get here. Average is 3 miles deep. It ain't from fracking.

343 As the Army continues to integrate women into combat arms jobs, the 75th Ranger Regiment has seen its first female soldier attempt to join its ranks.

The staff sergeant attended the 75th Ranger Regiments Ranger Assessment and Selection Program 2 in June, officials said.

RASP 2 is designed for soldiers in the rank of staff sergeant and above and all officers volunteering for assignment to the elite regiment.

The female soldier did not meet performance objectives required for assignment to the 75th Ranger Regiment, said Lt. Col. Robert Bockholt, a spokesman for U.S. Army Special Operations Command. The female soldier has been afforded the opportunity to reapply for RASP 2 beginning December 2016.

RASP 2 is a 21-day course for officers and soldiers in the rank of staff sergeant and above who want to serve in the 75th Ranger Regiment. The course, which is offered about nine times a year, assesses the suitability of mid- and senior-grade leaders for assignment to the regiment and teaches them the operational techniques and standards of the regiment, Bockholt said in a statement to Army Times. The course also provides training in special tactics, equipment and missions unique to the regiment. It is required for assignment to the regiment.

At one level, I view the draft as a form of involuntary servitude; however, it has the potential to bring a lot of things back into balance when almost anyone from any walk of life can get called up. It might even force Congress to openly debate each military adventure and decide a formal Declaration of War is a requisite for putting their fellow citizens in harm's way.

363 I'm sorry, I'm not clear on which part is the waste of money. The Army? Rangers? The 21 day training? Or the fact that they are gonna let the ladies give it a go?


Washing out of these things is SOP. I don't know how many they admit, but it's probably somewhere from 20-40% who make it. That's a rough guess, by the way. Might even be less, depending on the course.

Almost ALL of the military operates on a chain of command principle that varies little from civilian power and control. Frankly, if you are not in MY chain of command, I couldn't care less what your rank is. I might have to salute you when I pass you by, but otherwise, you're nothing to me.


And even within units, enlisted personnel spend the vast majority of their time following the orders of NCOs, in other words, direct supervisors. If... and that's a big IF, they see their commanding officers on any given day, that person probably knows very little of what they do, on the job.


Of course there are exceptions to this, and frankly, I know little of how a medical facility operates, chain of command-wise. But other non-combat personnel? It's essentially civilian government work.

I knew a lot of draftees when I was in the military. None of them were slaves. We all got payed the same according to our rank, whether a draftee or volunteer.

And, yes, there is service involved. Most of the time unthanked service. That's why refer to the military as being in service to the country. I wear my past service as a badge of honor.

But I guess some Americans refuse to make that sacrifice.

The unspoken truth is that crime and low intelligence are inextricably - and probably functionally - linked. People who are too stupid to get what they want by legal means, and/or too stupid to anticipate consequences, commit crimes.

I previously told the story of the husband of an acquaintance who burgled a house, then called the homeowner and offered to sell his stuff back to him. ("Pay me ransom or the TV gets it.") He shows up with the stuff (aka "evidence"), and is astonished to find the police waiting.

Then he gets out of prison, and having failed to appreciate the small but noticeable flaw in his cunning plan, does the exact same thing again.

Now I know liberals and other apologists for criminals like to postulate an army of Dr. Moriartys out there who just never get caught, but for every Bernard Madoff there are probably 100,000 dumb asses like this guy.

Funny you should mention that. I never knew of that parable. I used to write software for business purposes. Was really good at it. Could have earned an extra 20k a year, but turned away the work.

But I did write software in my spare time for the nun who was the principal at my kids school. Hooked her up with computers, printers, and custom networked software. She was well provided and sorta pleased. But nun, so nice, but not real friendly.

She gave me a gift one time. A headscratcher. Some sort of needlepoint that referred to using your talent or God would take it away. I thought it a funny way of saying thanks.

402 The first full time draft was passed by Congress in 1863. But you could buy your way out of it. The first real draft was passed by congress in 1917 because commie Wilson wanted to rely on the draft for soldiers in WWI which was an unpopular war.



That law was challenged in court as a violation of the 13th amendment which it probably is. But like the courts of today, the Supreme Court cared more for outcome than legality and they upheld the law.

The Germans certainly didn't want it. If they had they would have declared war when we fired on one of their submarines before the war was declared.

And the Japanese Navy did not want an actual war with the US because they knew they would lose in the end. But they were forced into it by the upper class military who thought we would negotiate for peace after they sank the Pacific Fleet at Pearl Harbor.

Neither the Germans nor the Japanese wanted war with the US. The Japanese launched on Pearl Harbor thinking they could settle a truce soon after.

Our political leadership has repeatedly betrayed the young patriots who joined up in good faith, or were drafted.

Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan. Their sacrifices were totally thrown away for political reasons. I'm a civilian who has never served, and I am utterly sickened by it.

I cannot imagine the heartbreak and rage of those who actually did serve, who lost comrades, and those who were maimed for life.

If it were me, I would be looking for revenge.

Me neither. I could easily imagine a Red agent provocateur taking a pot shot at the National Guard (or something of that ilk to make them think they were in danger), to get them to start shooting. Many was the time in Berkeley when I saw someone a few rows back throw a rock at the cops, since provoking overreaction is Communist Agitation 101.

Having said that, I could also easily imagine a bunch of scared adrenaline-pumping young NG soldiers overreacting. Demonstrations of that era were invariably emotionally charged to the Nth degree.

Germany declared war on us, first of all. And secondly, it was Japan's intention to control all of the pacific. It's one of the reasons they attacked Pearl. They thought of us as weak and that we would fold like cheap suits. Japan's control of the Pacific alone would have put this country in peril.

Which of course, IS part of the equation. If you put a lethal weapon into the hands of somebody with little training, bad things can and do happen.


If there are agitators... and yes indeed there are, including today where cops are under fire, the result is going to be dead bodies, some of which can be used as part of the propaganda war.

Japan needed oil badly. They even offered to negotiate getting out of China if the US would remove the oil embargo. Dean Atchinson's big mouth tied FDR's hands and he refused to meet for negotiations. That is what sparked the attack on Pearl harbor.


They actually thought it would bring the US to the table. As for Germany, we declared war on them only a few hours after they declared war on us. We didn't even know they had declared when we made ours and certainly not when FDR asked for the declaration.

It was May Day, moved back a few months so as not to validate the former, frankly Communist, observation.

493 I like the gardening thread on Saturdays, good day for threads people can mosey through during the day. Plus if you have immediate questions the Horde mind can answer ASAP.

My dad taught me years ago, what I am best at, carpentry-wise, is holding the other end of the board when someone else is operating the saw. Or going and getting that bag of nails out of the basement.

496 I like the weekend Not a Political threads,

And I certainly did more than my part to screw that up. And for that - I apologize to everyone. Wasn't the time to bring my "unique" perspective on that sort of thing.

I was in the wrong.

503 "Ricardo - I've never used the Stimson Stringer Hangers before. Does it matter "where" on the bracket I make the bend ?"




I can't help you much there, Scogg, as I'm not much of a building carpenter. If I was building a wood fence at the farm or ranch no problem, but, I can't tell you about building joists. If they're coming from HD I bet someone there can give you a better answer than me.

Posted by: Ricardo Kill at September 03, 2016 02:26 PM (UaOEc)

504 Will look up the thread on the question about joist hangers because not sure why you need to change them. But if a carpentry question ask me, will help all I can.

508 "But if a carpentry question ask me, will help all I can."


I'm glad you volunteered that, it's good to know. The flange he's asking about about appears to be a customizable one that you can bend/cut as needed as opposed to one purposely formed for a specific size or shape or angle.

516 I get that everybody likes to "dump" bad news on a Friday--and even better at the beginning of a long Holiday weekend. But in this day and age of electronic devices and cellphones (essentially computers), and twitter shouldn't it be different?

517 And I second what a poster said above. Why is the headline on Drudge making it appear as though some Chinese official molested Obama. He wasn't near the scene.

Drudge is useless on weekends unless there's a shirtless Tebow picture to post....

518 About the parable of the Talent and the huge schlong?

525 In other news, we actually felt what I believe was a Oklahoma centered earthquake up here in Omaha, NE this morning. It woke me up from my recovery... I mean sleep.

Very rude.

526 Not sure exactly but if made to bend or form should be ok. If about joist hangers get them in all you can but if missing one or can't get them all in not a big deal. I've cut them down or just used them as a angle on one side.

All I can think is that with reporters and editorialists keeping still for two days and not digging up more facts and angles and opinions and whatnot, the story loses a little air.
