Overnight Open Thread (3 Sep 2016)

Oh c'mon media. You can make this a big time campaign issue. Don't act like it's beyond your power to influence. Hillary Clinton, rarely seen, rarely heard. Amazing that a candidate running for President is allowed by the press to avoid them. She hasn't given a bonafide press conference since she was at the UN last year!

Green Power

Anyone know if environmental groups care that this Mojave Desert solar plant kills 6,000 birds a year? I bet they would be protesting outside any other non-green power plant in a heartbeat if this was occurring there.

Terror Drones

It's going to happen here sooner or later. Jund al Aqsa uses drone to drop small bomb on Syrian regime forces.

And no, I don't think we can coexist with terrorists as this author implies.

On This Day in 1983...

...this song hit #1.

Oh California

Man I'm glad I've given up my California residency. Cow fart regulations approved by California's legislature. The party of science my ass. I'm still scratching my head on how methane can't persist for long in the atmosphere but has a huge influence on the climate. Methane only makes up 0.00017% of the atmosphere too.

August Jobs Report

August jobs report doesn't change much for the Fed.

The 151,000 figure was dominated by strong growth in government hiring (+20,000 jobs), social assistance (+22,000 jobs) and - this is a real brain strainer - "food services and drinking places" (+34,000 jobs.)

Those new government jobs were almost entirely on the local level, with only 1,000 federal positions.

What local government do you know that hired a substantial numbers of workers this August? If social agencies are hiring workers in large numbers, it could only mean that more Americans need assistance, which canít be a good thing.


And this part was interesting.
there are thousands of campaign workers for both Trump and Hillary Clinton who could be adding to the employment numbers.

Someone has to work only one hour a month to be considered on a payroll, and depending on how the candidates report their workers, that could be a boost to the employment numbers going into the election.

Pomplamoose

Blue On Blue

This ought to be interesting. Where are all the folks that were fighting for the Washington Redskins to change their logo now? Native American activists in New Mexico say Hispanic fiesta ignores horrors of Pueblo tribes.

Pepper Hijinks

Heh. They probably thought they were Egyptian Strawberries. Dozens of middle school students 'sickened' after eating Carolina Reaper peppers.

Tears

Your tears are as unique as snowflakes.

8 The Pueblo got screwed all 'round. If it wasn't the Spaniards, it was the Comanche.

The Comanche were a lot worse from my reading of the history - Taos, in particular. The Comancheria pretty much conquered Taos from New Spain and forced it to pay its tribute to the Comanche, and not to Mexico City or Madrid or wherever.

But the Comanche don't have money anymore, so good luck suing them for reparations.

Banana stems emit a gas to ripen it, I learned.

Good news, everyone!:

Star Trek: Discovery: Things We Learned At the Mission New York Convention

Meyer and Beyer are on the shows production team, so Ex Cathedra:

Nicholas Meyer said. "There's not shortage of contemporary events, whether we're talking ISIS or Donald Trump. How do demagogues arise and what do you do when you're dealing with an enemy who isn't interested in negotiation? Our series would do a disservice if it doesn't address those questions. Otherwise, it looks like we're pulling our punches."

Speaking directly to rumors of whether a Muslim crew member will be part of the Discovery crew along with the gay character who has been previously reported, Kristen Beyer said, "The spirit of inclusion is not just related to sexual orientation."

81 The history of conflict between and among Pueblos is pretty brutal. They had no compunction against enlisting the Spanish to their own ends to slaughter one another. Just like the history of all human conquest. No more or less noble than any other tribe or nation.

The U.S. government tries to keep it hidden, but there are mass graves in the Four Corners area where thousands of bodies were buried - evidence of genocide. The most peddled story about where the Cliff Dwellers went is that they had to move out because of drought. In light of the mass graves they were probably victims of tribal cleansing.

90 Hee Haw.

The murder of Dave, "Stringbean", Ackeman, and his wife, Estelle.

Ridgetop Tennessee, 1973. Dave, and his wife returned home to their unassuming cabin in the woods, following his appearance at the Grand Ol' Opry, where he performed his iconic "Good Ol' Mountain Dew".

A couple of thugs were waiting for the couple...it was rumored around town that Stringbean distrusted banks, and tended to hide cash around his cabin. Dave, and Estelle were shot dead by the thugs, who made off with a chainsaw, and a few other trinkets they'd managed to find in the cabin.

Dave was killed first, Estelle second, after begging for her life. It was Grandpa Jones, neighbor, and fellow Hee Haw alum that found their bodies the next day.

Their killers made off with less than 100 dollars in cash, and goods. They were caught...and convicted. One died in prison, the other, John Brown was paroled in 2014, after serving 41 years of his 200+ year sentence.

He's still alive. Out there, somewhere in Tennessee. Free as a bird.

I guess...the lesson learned here, is that the characters portrayed in Hee Haw weren't fictionalized caricatures of Smokey Mountain hicks. They were real people. Stringbean was Grandpa Jones real life neighbor. He lived his life in a worn out log cabin, with Estelle. He had money...and even drove a Cadillac, but his home had a dirt floor, a wood stove. He was not far removed from the clownish character he portrayed on TV. Neither was Grandpa Jones.

95 I have a question for the Horde. I'm not terribly good with cars. Lately, one of my tires has developed a slow leak. I keep filling it with air every few weeks, because I have no money and can't afford to replace it.

I recently discovered the cause--it's a screw in between the treads. Not a large one, I would guess, certainly nothing along the order of attaching a television to a wall, for example.

So, my question is this: should I remove the screw, or leave it in?

If I remove it, will that make the slow leak faster, thus necessitating a new tire? Or will taking it out reduce the leakage?

As mentioned, I am not good with cars and have no money.

All answers appreciated. And thank you.

Leave it in until you can buy a tire plug repair kit at the parts store. BUT, if it's a huge screw that really damaged the tire, a plug won't work.

People who fix tires for a living can remove the screw, and replace it with a 'plug' for a couple of bucks. Ok, maybe five. Well, at today's prices maybe twenty-five.

They can also tell you if it is the screw causing the leak, or something else, like a slowly leaking valve stem.

147 Screw in tire. Back in the early 2000s, before this damnable arthritis got too much, I actually put a screw in a tire, on purpose, at the behest of a truck driver. It was big grain truck, we had just loaded it, and I happened to notice a flat on one of the rear trailer tires.

It was a big truck tire, hell, I can't even remember the designation, 22" or so rim, and a big one. I think it was the tubeless type -- those I never fooled with. I can't remember the rim type.

Anyway, the driver backed it up to our shop and told me to put a damn screw in it. What?! Yeah, that'll work if we can get it to seal.

Before it was over, it had me take a tiny drill bit, the tiniest one I could find and drill a little hole in the tire at the puncture to allow us to get a screw in that he selected out of the pile of screws and shit I had. We then found a little rubber washer, used some tire cement, and screwed it in the little hole.

Damned if it didn't seal, and seal against 90psi+. The driver had done that shit many times.

Tractor and lawn mower tires will get a dozen small leaks. Too many to plug. Slime will seal and prevent slow leaks even from a screw. We get it at Tractor Supply but the auto parts may have it too.

Reminds me of the "War Of Powers" series by Vardeman and Milan. It was somewhere between high fantasy and erotica.... very moron friendly.

There's a big hero character (Fost), a deposed princess who has a thing for the big hero character, and a barbarian tribeswoman. Big hero is off with the barbarianette. The princess has the spirit of a long-dead philosopher in a jar (Erimenes IIRC), and a magic mirror.

Okay - so, having set the scene, we drop on the princess and the ghost having an argument. The ghost bets the princess that the hero and the barbarian are doing the nasty. The princess retorts hotly, my Fost will never betray me, he will "spurn" that savage hussy. Then they activate the mirror...

... the philsopher ghost, Erimenes, remarks "she seems to find this spurning most salubrious"

184 Passenger car tires are easy. The true test of your mettle are big truck tires. Actually a machine is best for fancy wheels, which they use all the time now. You don't want to take a hammer to set of fancy wheels unless you're very, very good.

Those big truck tires used to come, in and still do in multipiece designs that would explode if they weren't assembled correctly. Some type were worse than others. I forget the exact differences. Some would fail when the metal rusted. We had one do that on the road.

Anyway, the reason for the multi-piece designs was because the tires were just too stiff and thick to properly "buttonhole" over a 1 piece rim. I think some big machines they have now can muster the force necessary on some more modern designs, but I'm not sure.

It is so cheap to have the tire shop do it, I would advise going to them. They will remove the wheel from the car, remove the screw, plug it, dunk it in a tank of water to make sure they got the leak sealed, and finally put the wheel back on your car. If necessary, they will remove the tire from the wheel to get at the inside, but they usually don't have to. All for 5 or 10 bucks.

Agreed.

I can completely understand not voting for either Trump or Hill-dawg, but, as Ace keeps pointing out on Twitter, a lot of the "conservative" punditry will dump on Trump all day while saying nary a peep about Hillary. A lot of it is striking me (and not in a good way) as virtue signaling, that they're declaring publicly they aren't "racist" or "bigoted" by bashing Trump exclusively.

Here's a fun exercise somebody might be inclined to do: go through Evan Whats-His-Name's Twitter feed and count up all the Tweets he and his team have made bashing Trump or Hillary and compare them by percentage. If his run is truly "independent", one would expect he'd bash them about equally, no?

224 The best tire man I ever saw was the short little black guy. He wasn't much over 5'. But that dude made even the toughest tires look like child's play.

He could swing a tire hammer, and when he hit the bead, it moved. Every damn time. It's just a matter of knowing how to swing, and making sure it hits just right, so as to make efficient use of the blow.

There was one truck tire my father and I, and two other guys had nearly killed ourselves trying to break down. We finally just took it up to the tire place where that little guy worked. We were in luck, he was there.

You didn't try to help him, all you would do is get in his way and hinder him. He rolled that tire out of the bed of the pickup, slapped it down on the concrete pad and got his tire hammer.

In just one blow, he broke it down. Shit, we all exclaimed. You are good. He was. He didn't even charge, saying get out of here, but my father managed to shove a $5 in his pocket.

Aircraft tires are the same way, you stand in front or in back, never to the side next to the rim and you keep a safety zone out beside the airplane while you are inflating it. 350PSI on the beach and 500 on the ship for Tomcat tires IIRC.

253 OSHA (or whoever, state laws kicked in too) mandated the use of a cage for inflating truck tires (the kind that can explode if mis-assembled, or the metal fails at the wrong spot). You put the tire in the cage, then hook up a clamp-on type and inflate.

There's been many a tire man killed with a truck tire exploding. The force is unbelievable.

We had one old truck that had a rim type design that was the dangerous kind. My father would run me off when we inflated it when I was a young boy, and he would mount them on the truck before inflation, and use a clamp-on. Sometimes the clamp-on didn't hold and he do it by hand.

One of those rims exploded on me, not due to just changing, but driving. Luckily it wasn't loaded. I head a big boom, shit my pants, and pulled over. The right rear inside rim had blown. The loose part was facing inside, otherwise it would have likely blow the outside tire as well. It wrapped the loose rim piece around the box springs.

254 The re-enactment of the entrada, or entry, is the climax of the week-long celebration that also features the burning of a six-foot puppet. The annual burning of Zozobra, a towering figure stuffed with shredded paper, is meant to help drive away the doom and gloom of the previous year.

Zozobra is 60 feet tall, not 6 & it happened last night, me & the wife went last year. The guy who thought up Burning Man has always said that he didn't rip the idea off, but he lived in Santa Fe in the 70s so everybody here knows he's full of shit.

That's it. The cheesesteak recipe is in "Tender is the Loin II". Can't find a video on Youtube though. But considering cheesesteak was designed to use up scrap meat, I would imagine you could get by with using just about any cut if you slice it thin enough.

285 Most the trucks we had and still have, use the "snap ring" rim design, which (they tell me) is the safest kind. They can still blow on you.

We've fussed with those big "snap rings", and that little tire could peel them off like nothing.

And, yeah, the "dogs". That's what we always did. Loosen the nuts, then bang it if necessary to loosen them. They were also very fun to get the tire aligned straight. If not, it would "hunt tacks". Jacked up, we'd always lay something down right next to the tire and rotate it, slowly tightening the dogs in sequence and watching to make sure it wasn't wobbling. Too much.

When my hip started getting bad, I nearly killed myself on a truck tire, one of the "snap rim" types. I lost my balance, but the range of motion on that hip was so small, I could move right to regain my balance. I fell over and smashed my face up against a corner on the truck rear. It was just an inch below my right eye, and required stitches.

That's when I realized I wasn't able to cut the mustard anymore.

313 If I remove it, will that make the slow leak faster, thus necessitating a new tire? Or will taking it out reduce the leakage?

****

Removing the screw will definitely make the tire go flat faster. The good news is that you know where the hole in your tire is. You can get a tire repair kit for about $5. This type of repair kit allows you to fix the hole without removing the tire from the rim. Most tire stores will fix a flat for $10-15.

Where did your tires come from? Les Schwab Tire stores will drive to wherever your car is to fix a flat for free if the tires were bought at their store.

Possibly late to the party, as I had to eat my supper, but anyway:


Preferred repair is to demount the tire, check for run-flat damage, and if there is none, put a tire patch on the inside of the tire at the site of the puncture. If you were diligent about airing up the tire whenever it looked low, it may not have sustained run-flat damage. The classic sign of run-flat damage is sharp wires sticking out of the normally-smooth inner surface of the tire in the area where the tread meets the sidewalls. A tire with run-flat damage is junk, and should not be repaired, as it will probably sling the tread off at speed!


A flat repair normally runs about $25, these days. If you can't afford that, and are confident you don't have run-flat damage, go to WalMart or any auto-supply store, and get a plug kit for a few dollars. Pull out the screw, ream the hole with the reamer in the kit, and leave the reamer in the hole. Thread a plug, which is like goo-coated thick twine, through the needle provided in the kit, coat it with the glue from the kit, and then remove the reamer, and sloooowly push the needle and plug into the hole. You want to stop when the tag ends of the plug are a quarter-inch long, more or less. Then withdraw the needle, and use a razor knife to trim the tag ends of the plug flush with the tread, so road friction doesn't draw the plug out. It is easy as pie to do this; best if you are near an air source.


The plugs work 99% of the time, and I carry a plug kit in my vehicle when traveling, because you can do it with the wheel on the car.

329 Anyone know if environmental groups care that this Mojave Desert solar plant kills 6,000 birds a year? I bet they would be protesting outside any other non-green power plant in a heartbeat if this was occurring there.
---------------

I know Gov. Schwarzenneger had suggested building a solar plant out in the Mojave Desert (one of the few places in the US where it *might* make sense), and been attacked by Green groups upset about habitat destruction. The last I'd heard, the Greens had successfully killed his plan. I'm not sure whether it went ahead after all, or this was another solar plant that was proposed and constructed. The article mentions Obama, and not Schwarzenegger, so I wouldn't be surprised if this plant is a later attempt, with additional pressure from the White House to get the project completed.

337 Anyway, the reason for the multi-piece designs was because the tires were just too stiff and thick to properly "buttonhole" over a 1 piece rim. I think some big machines they have now can muster the force necessary on some more modern designs, but I'm not sure.

Posted by: publius (not Breitbart publius) at September 03, 2016 10:54 PM (DW+jj)


Multi-piece rims are ancient history now. I own some old trucks, so I have worked with them. Never any problems, but I took my time and was uber-careful, and put loops of chain through the wheel to catch the retainer ring when I first aired them up with a remote air line.

343 Most of those tire chunks are due to recaps
--------------------

There is/was a stretch of I-95 in Florida that was littered with recaps. Something about the mix in the concrete, or perhaps they ground the surface because the original was too smooth and became very slippery when wet.

About a five mile stretch with over fifty caps. Nothing before or after.

And those caps don't just come off. The tire usually explodes due to over heating. Usually a low pressure tire running at max load, on a hot day. And those caps will damage your radiator if it hits you in the grill.

You do not want to be in the lane next to one of those tires when they blow.

There is/was a youtube video where a vandal punctures the sideway of a truck tire, and the blast of air knocks him out.

Cooking it down should make it OK for shrimp though, I think. I guess I'll find out.

398 Yep, most of the truck drivers I've known had a dislike for motorcycles. One thing that makes them mad is they are hard to see. This is something that only comes on your radar screen if you drive trucks, and you depend on mirrors to see what's behind and next to you.

Motorcycles can be hard to see and they get mad at them "hiding" in their blind spots.

What would piss me off is a matter of inertia. A loaded truck doesn't accelerate and decelerate like a passenger car. There would, just about ever time I was every in traffic with a truck, be some dingbat or idiot who would whip around you, mad that you were in truck in his way, then get right in front of you and slam on brakes to make a right hand turn.

Also, blocking turns by sticking out too far. When I'm driving and see a truck coming to make a turn, I'll always stay back a bit to give him room to make the turn easy.

That instinct only comes from driving one yourself.

I have those on an old school bus here at Peon Manor. They all hold air. Inner tubes, of course.

My routine for multi-piece rims? Sandblast the parts down to bare metal. Inspect for cracks and damage. Grind off small nicks, burrs, and hammer dings. Trial-fit the parts to ensure that they mate up properly. Prime and paint. Install the new flap, tire and tube. Fit rim parts together. Place two loops of chain through holes in the rim across from one another, and use clevises to tie chains. Air up with a clamp-on air chuck, controlled from a safe distance away, and out of direct line with a possible burst rim.

The guys who get hurt are the ones in a hurry, most often.

401 Burnt Toast - thanks for both tips. Kiholo Bay is one of the places where they had the stone fishponds, right?

Posted by: Skookumchuk at September 04, 2016 12:14 AM (3E1vZ)

No, it is North of Kona. It's a small lagoon with cold-water springs inside of the Bay. The lagoon is rather cloudy and has big ass fish (could have sharks for all I know, but the Bay is clear and had plenty turtles to catch a ride on. Went there maybe a half dozen times and nobody else around.


I did a quick Bing and it does come up on top.

If you snorkle and will be on the Hilo side there are some local spots there.

I just checked Bing maps.

Some the the hiking guides mention the scenic overlook. I always went about a half mile north of there where the DOT pull off is (the map had a car parked there). There is a 'trail' that starts where you pull off the main road. If you hadn't noticed, the trails are marked with little piles of white rocks.

This thread seems rather tiresome.

Since I liked the Caro Emerald vid linked to earlier, I follwed the one to "Caro Emerald - You're All I Want For Christmas" - and realized, I'm really not ready for winter. Had enough of 95+° summer days, yeah, but really not ready for winter.

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

Among the videos I watched tonight, in honor of this morning's Okla 5.6'er, was "National Geographic_ the end of the world the terrible earthquake documentary" - not really end of the world, and nothing much I didn't really already know - just about the NW coast potential mega-shaker.

I have relatives in Oregon and Washington who think they're safe because they're inland, not on the coast. Hahaha. When the economy tanks and the refugees flood west because of the quake and tsunami, will we let them in down here in Oklahoma? ... Yeah, probably. Family, y'know.

I just like saying Juan de Fuca.

418 There is/was a stretch of I-95 in Florida that was littered with recaps. Something about the mix in the concrete, or perhaps they ground the surface because the original was too smooth and became very slippery when wet.

About a five mile stretch with over fifty caps. Nothing before or after.

And those caps don't just come off. The tire usually explodes due to over heating. Usually a low pressure tire running at max load, on a hot day. And those caps will damage your radiator if it hits you in the grill.

You do not want to be in the lane next to one of those tires when they blow.

There is/was a youtube video where a vandal punctures the sideway of a truck tire, and the blast of air knocks him out.

421 Well, today was a landmark in the saga of the VW Super Beetle that I am patching up. Finished the floor and under-body repairs, and hooked up the two flex pipes for the interior heating system. Ran the last link in my new fuel line. Tightened loose bolts on the rear bumper. Got it off the hoist, and ran it outside. Put some fuel in the tank, and the electric fuel pump ran on demand, and filled the carb up. Started it up, and drove a circuit of the yard. Aside from not wanting to idle properly, it ran OK. Fuel gauge doesn't work. But I pulled up on the "Temp" control, and was rewarded by a cloud of dust and debris in the interior as the engine fan forced warm air down the long-idle heater ducts. Woo-Hoo!

426 There at the last, we had gotten a new truck (not brand new), a '97 F-700 class (they don't call them F-600, F-700, etc, but some class system, class 6, class 7 or some crap like that).

It had tubeless radials, and one piece rims. That was the first radial and tubeless truck tires I'd ever had experience with. I though they squatted too much underload, even though the pressure was 95 psi, which is getting to the limit you can inflate with single stage compressors. It would take a long time to get them up there.

But then I noticed something. Under load, they ran much, much cooler than the old bias tires, even though they squatted more. I wondered it they actually "stood up" under the centrifugal force and weren't as squatted running.

Anyway, the difference was greatly noticeable. The bias tires would get so hot you couldn't your hand on the tread, but these radials would be cool enough you could keep your hand on them.

432 I just got around to turning my reapers into chilli powder, grinding them in a coffee grinder sure cleared my sinuses. The powder doesn't seem any hotter than the Brazilian berries I had been using, but maybe it's me just getting more use to the heat.

When I was cleaning them to dry out (purchased them from a market so they were extra dirty) that's when things were bad. First just washing them was like pepper spray, then I had to cut them to dry them, that's when things went bad. The worst pain I ever felt was two days later when I thought the oils dispersed, and I went to pee.

I'll be more careful this year when my home grown plants are ready to pick.

That's not an atypical depth for deep disposal wells. Usually, such wells are drilled to exploit a brine-laden permeable zone below any potentially productive formations. That's why deep injection wells do have a history of triggering small quakes. The good news is, triggering those small quakes probably releases, more or less safely, pent-up rock stress that, if left alone would eventually let go in a big quake.

You know, it has occurred to me that there might be a business opportunity, in sunny regions, to lease solar stills to operators of wells which produce brine along with the oil. Run the brine through solar stills, producing fresh water, which has a market value, and reduce the volume of brine that has to be hauled and pumped away.

Mitey Mouse: Did you get shaken up by the tremor, Mindful? How about the other OK Morons and Ettes?

'Deed, I did, Mitey. I went from sound sleep to standing in the front doorway in seconds as I realized it was a major (for 'round here) quake. No damage that I've noticed, but it was like a freight train was in the driveway.

I know Sherry McEvil reported she felt it but her overbuilt house was okay. Saw a report from a Moron who was unfamiliar to me down near OKCity that reported in as doing okay.

Got to brag to the relatives in Calif. that we got the shaker today.

Some folks don't realize that a quake here in the middle of the country can have far more devastating effects than out in places like Calif. Long waves travel far and carry lots of damage. Read they registered it up in Milwaukee.

483 Alberta Oil Peon: ...That's not an atypical depth for deep disposal wells. Usually, such wells are drilled to exploit a brine-laden permeable zone below any potentially productive formations. That's why deep injection wells do have a history of triggering small quakes. The good news is, triggering those small quakes probably releases, more or less safely, pent-up rock stress that, if left alone would eventually let go in a big quake.

Appreciate the (presumably) knowledgeable reply on this. I'd been wondering about the depth on that.

They (whoever They be) did, of course, immediately order shut-down of injections all around that area.

The Last Weaver dies
Daniel Kreps, Rolling Stone

Fred Hellerman, the last surviving member of the influential Fifties folk group the Weavers, died Thursday at his home in Weston, Connecticut. He was 89.... Hellerman, along with the Weavers' Ronnie Gilbert, Lee Hays and Pete Seeger, helped spark the folk revolution of the 1960s thanks to their renditions of standards like "Kisses Sweeter than Wine," Woody Guthrie's "So Long, It's Been Good to Know Yuh" and Lead Belly's "Goodnight Irene." ...

No kidding. They don't even build to withstand tornadoes, really.

Changing, gradually.

Years ago I read that if the Madrid quake happened today, most of downtown Chicago would be flattened. Best place to be was the Hancock, built on rolling caissons. I've been up 'top the Hancock when it was swaying just from the wind. Would be interesting to be there drinking while watching the city burn around you.

The whole lake shore is compacted sand, which would "liquify." Most buildings built on that would collapse, except maybe double-brick buildings (like the one we lived in) which would merely be uninhabitable. Utility lines destroyed, roads gone, gas lines burning. Fun stuff.

Estate #1, relative that took care of decedent for last 3 years of life has now sued the estate for approximately half the value of the estate. This while same relative is continuing to interfere in the business of the estate.

Estate #2, executor tells me it will probably be wrapped up in a few months. Everything's cool.

Of course, estate #1 involves a formerly close knit family. Estate #2 involves a bunch of people who rarely communicated before or after, and inheritors from multiple marriages.

Seems a bit ironic to me, but then what do I know. Maybe it's always this way?

We have the windmills here in N IL. The problem I hear about is that they only last so long and when done the company is not always obligated to remove the wreckage.

Our local steel mill closed ca. 1992. They employed over 4500 in twin cities w/ a population of ca. 30,000. There is a small steel company on part of the site that employs 200 or so.

Hey, the Moron Horde has gone international!



You're right on the money with your analyses, and their war on jobs ends up feeding their social engineering agenda. If they get everyone hooked on drugs, or dependent on the dole, or both, that robs them of their independence and provides levers you can use to control them.



As the old software engineering saying goes, it's not an error, it's a feature. The globalists are trying to destroy the independent spirit that the West, particularly the Anglosphere, created and make the whole world into servile peasants that will happily do whatever the new aristocracy demands for scraps from the master's table.

Probate??? Lawyers???

I didn't know anyone still did things the old-fashioned way.

Not sure what the laws are in your state, but out here in Cali-forn-eye-a basically EVERYBODY puts their ENTIRE assets into the following situations where there is no probate, no lawyers, no arguments when they pass away.

Basically, the setup is simple. There are three rules that are universally followed:

1. All investments and real estate and stocks (and possibly bank accounts -- see below) are transferred while you are alive to the ownership of a living trust. You are the current trustee of the trust, and your chosen heirs are deemed the "successor trustees" of the trust. When you die, there is NO CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP of the assets -- they all remain owned by the trust. All that changes is that there is a new current trustee, as the successor trustees take over. No probate, no lawyers, nuttin'. Later, at their leisure, they can dissolve the trust if they so choose -- again, no probate.

2. All bank accounts are set up to have multiple account co-holders -- you and your heirs. If, for example, you have two equal heirs, then the account will have three owners while you are alive -- you and the two heirs. When you die, the bank simply takes your name off the account, leaving the previous two owners in place. Once again, this means that there is NO CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP, and thus no probate, no lawyers. (The only proviso here is that the heirs all be trustworthy and reliable, so they don't take the money while you are alive. If they are not reliable, then you put the bank account into the trust, as above.)

3. All IRAs and similar investment instruments which MUST be owned by an individual are set up with the correct beneficiaries (i.e. your heirs). When you die, all they need to do is present the death certificate to the institution, and all assets are distributed to them with NO PROBATE and NO LAWYERS.

And that's it. In this way, ALL of your assets, no matter what type they are, can pass to your heirs with no delay, no taxes, no probate, no lawyers, no lawsuits, no problems.

This system used to be only known by and followed by the very wealthy with acute financial savvy, but for quite a while now the knowledge has spread to the rest of the world -- at least the middle class.

As far as I know, this same system can be used in ANY state, unless any of them specifically outlaw living trusts, which I doubt.

Probably could have been used in his case as well but he never updated his will after his wife died, which is strange because I remember my own wife signing papers after her mother died but there was no sign of them in her papers or in his. They are probably in a hidden safe deposit box somewhere...but my late wife would have been the executor of the estate and she passed in 2010. He asked me if I would sign the papers to become the executor, which I readily agreed to, but it never happened.

Sad story that, Laura was an only child and the three of them passed within 5 years of each other. Mom first in 2009, Laura in 2010 and then Pop in 2014.

539 I found a pill caddy on Amazon that has individual holders for each day that will stack in a holder in any order you want. I have it on my next order link.

It really is. The rain is gone, I have bourbon and a skull cup to drink it out of, I have a pretty lady asleep in the next room who, for reasons that escape me entirely, seems to be fairly fond of me, I'm unreasonably healthy except for this summer cold that I'm getting over...life is pretty good actually.

544 Thats an interesting comment, GCE - and one that unfortunately a lot of people, I think, fail to understand and appreciate.

Here's a personal example - recently I had to have a little surgical procedure and I was laying in the hospital at about 3am feeling sorry for myself - when it occurred to me how wildly fortunate I really am. With the exception of a minor health setback, I absolutely have it made. I am blessed beyond belief. It's WAY too easy to focus on little bumps in the road and miss the big picture.

Yep. It's like customer service, satisfied people don't complain.

547 Sweet Dreams is a decent song I came to hate because it was so grossly overplayed.

549 Super Beetle? That brings back memories. My daddy had a small fleet of volkswagens: a '67 squareback with a 4 speed stick; a '73 squareback auto; and a '73 or '74 Super
Beetle. That thing was a trip! Burnt orange paint job, and a stick, lots of fun.

Of course, the heaters in those things never worked worth a shit, so quit bragging.

550 I was lucky enough to be in my late teens with Eurthymics appeared on the scene and there were so many delicious "WTF's?? " in their videos. Pure definition of "the 80's".

I was a lucky bastard to be the right age during "peak MTV".

That as well as being a sound guy for a friends band and was in his garage when a 14YO (or so) Trent Reznor auditioned for his first band. Their band spent endless hours in my basement recording studio with a 4 track Teac. We were all so poor we just kept recording over the 10.5" reel-to-reel tape. Dumped everything to cassette. Not a single one to be found.

551 Crooked Hilary is not avoiding the press. Its just that they can't afford the donation to the Clinton crime family fund for an interview.
