Mid-Morning Open Thread: Labor Day Edition [CBD]

General Strike.jpg

It's time for action, my fine droogs. Crush the classist oppressors. Win the war against wealth!

What? You're just going to sit on the patio and grill some burgers and drink beer? That's not really the point of Labor Day.

6 A carry over from the Hillary Wheelchair comment from the last thread.

Each of the three photos is of a different vehicle.
Yet the title addresses a singular van..

I wouldn't go banging the drums too loudly just yet, as it may not pass the sniff test.

7 >>So Obama hadn't even done anything yet? Sounds like Duterte just wanted
an excuse to swear at Obama, which I can understand, but still, why
would he have a chip on his shoulder about Obama?

A guess?
He was lashing out at America, because he could - just a power play. Under Obama there's no fear, so you can taunt, insult or provoke us (Russia fly-bys, Iran harassing our Navy, etc.) to show how tough you are. Obama likes to call it "punching above your weight."

15 Posted this on dead thread below, a pointless exercise it turned out. Sad when freaking "infowars" is a source .



Good morning everyone. I noticed on Drudge that Reuters heavily censored Mr. Trump being treated well by a black church, and its members.
It is stories like this that make me believe that our country is gone beyond reclaiming.
It's like we are occupied by an enemy foreign power.

Anyway, enjoy your Knights of Labor Day.

23 Willowed. Question about Duterte on the sidebar.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte, who threatened to "swear at" Obama if he asked about the Philippines' extrajudicial killings -- and then swore at him anyway.


It sounds like Obama hadn't even done anything yet to provoke Duterte. But why would he have a chip on his shoulder about Obama? He's a bloodthirsty tin pot dictator of a third world sh*thole. Just Barry's type. I picture them chatting amicably while munching on pineapple glazed roast dog.

46 Mike Hammer,
Roses are burnt & tiny. We've had 20 90 degree days this year. They're always small in summer but they've never been this burnt.

I need to remove all, fertilize one last time & hope weather doesn't reach 90s again. I'm still trying to get pink/white climbers to climb. Last year I had to chop to below ankle level. 11 y/o white climber in back died over this winter.

I was pondering this the other day. I can't eat anything without the kitten trying to take it from me. And it doesn't matter how often I put toilet paper on the dispenser, there's none there when I need it. It's pretty much a contemporary Venezuelan existence.

Could it be that Venezuela is being ruled by a 5-month-old cat?

Since the 1880s, the color black has been associated with anarchism. The black cat, in an alert, fighting stance was later adopted as an anarchist symbol.

More specifically, the black cat, often called the "sab cat" or "sabo-tabby", is associated with anarcho-syndicalism, a branch of anarchism that focuses on labor organizing and the wildcat strike.

93 Talk about contrast! I literally had just been looking at 'The Marriage at Cana' painting by Veronese in 1563 before opening this thread.

The Veronese is one of the most impressive paintings I've ever seen: brilliant color, each of the many figures is an individual, architectural accuracy, and an astonishing technical competence. These words are completely inadequate to describe such a masterpiece. You really should look up a copy that can be enlarged. The original is 22' x 32'. The viewer could spend days enriching his life by studying it.

Then there is today's black and orange-ish mockery of art more appropriate for the Halloween edition of a bad pulp magazine. (Yeah, I know why it was chosen. Happy Labor Day, BTW.)

96 In an earlier we were discussing stuff that isn't around anymore/you miss from the past. Not particular possessions, but stuff. I mentioned sonic booms, I always thought that was cool. I thought of something else: remember the knife and scissor sharpener trucks that used to drive around? Now scissors are essentially disposable.

Mike Hammer, I had a 40 meter dipole that I could tune from 10 down to 80 meters. It worked pretty well considering I can't give it much height. Also looking into a magnetic loop or a Gap Titan vertical. Not cheap but they get good reviews.

146 Ricardo Kill:

In a baking pan, fill it 3/4 full of thinly chopped apples, dot with about a quarter stick of butter, sprinkle with sugar.

In a separate bowl, mix about a cup or more of oatmeal with a cup or more of flour and a half cup of sugar, cut in a half stick of butter until it resembles crumbs, and spread over the apples in the pan

Bake at 350F for 40 - 45 minutes

If you use brown sugar it will have more caramel overtones, and if you apples are too sweet or bland try putting some lemon juice in on top of the apples before putting on the topping.

That is happiness in a pan.

I have a G5RV dipole strung up like an inverted vee, apex up about 50'. It works OK.

I first got my ham license in 1970, when I was 14 years old. Was active until about 1980, then other things like school and life and marriage, took precedence. Got back into the hobby in 2010. Interesting to see the changes.

First, the no-code license is blasphemy. I'm just sayin'.

Second, the all solid-state rigs with digital tuning are pretty cool. The all solid-state KW amplifiers are also amazing to me.

171 Question re. CK and the American Flag and kneeling. I thought kneeling was a sign of respect or humility or gratitude . It is not ok to put knee to ground and thank the Lord, as I recall.* So what is this whole kneeling thing? What does it signify? Why is it ok? Seriously, I am not getting this.

*The knee to ground thing is not ok for Tim Tebow but ok for CK.

Then again if it were up to me I would never have him or his merry band of sycophants be mentioned again. Far as I would know he's a benchwarmer who was once a good QB. He fell in love with some muslim chick and now he is all this.

181 U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson spoke over this past weekend at the annual Islamic Society of America (ISNA) event, greeting the participants warmly and telling them, Your story is the quintessential American story.



Extremist speakers at the ISNA conference at which Secretary Johnson spoke included Jamal Badawi, a founder of another Brotherhood entity, the Muslim American Society, and Nihad Awad, founder and executive director of the CAIR organization. CAIR, too, is a U.S. Brotherhood entity, and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land terror financing case.

Although the Post wrote that Johnson was the highest-ranking U.S. official to address an ISNA conference, this is incorrect; Clarion reported that U.S. President Obama himself addressed the 2013 ISNA convention and praised the group for its partnership with his administration.



The Washington Post called Johnsons appearance an impassioned speech to empower ISNAs participants.

The Clarion Project reports that ISNA is a group with Muslim Brotherhood origins and an unindicted co-conspirator in the Holy Land Foundation terror-financing trial. The Holy Land Foundation (HLF) was created by the now-defunct Palestine Committee, which itself was established by the Muslim Brotherhood to advance Hamass political and financial agendas in the United States.

A couple weeks later they went to the shelter to get 2 cats. In a cage were 3 siblings. They picked 2. As my dad turned away he felt a tap tap on his back. It was the third kitteh sibling. They went home with 3.

Someday if science can remove the 'kill gene' in big cats and replace it with a 'lap kitteh rub my belly and I'm happy' gene I want to get a Snow Leopard. They are some beautiful cats.

Where are the sunspots when we need them?

I sometimes listen to the bands on an old Sony 2010 receiver. I was surprised how much CW there was. But I didn't hear as much rag chewing on 75 meters as there used to be. Those were usually older hams who may well be SKs by now.

The "red scare" is over, since most people accepted the reds into our culture, even as the commie bastards made up the term "McCarthyism" to successfully smear McCarthy.

The "commies" took over Hollywood and the MSM in many ways, but mostly the divide and conquer technique spawned all sorts of DC-centric corruption.

So "Black Lives Matter" is more racist gangster anarchy, created by Soros money and Holder intervention in Ferguson. It is not communism, it is a tool to create instability.

Of course the communism fairy tale is what Democrats preach all the time. The reality is there are always a few at the top that use the propaganda to use government as their enforcer for their graft. They should have died long ago, but they run DC and the media instead. But "socialist grifters" may be a better description.

You're not supposed to understand it. It doesn't make any sense; you can't understand it.

Remember Ace's post from earlier this week about knee-jerk responses and signaling what side you're on before giving it any thought. My addendum is leftist ideology requires that because it's all absurd. It's more than "I did not have sex with that woman" which is merely a deliberate misstatement of a fact (i.e., a lie). It's "It depends on what your definition of 'is' is." If you think about it, your mind becomes thoroughly boggled.

Consider:

Human activity is causing the sea level to rise.
A person's sex is whatever they say it is.
The Confederate flag has indirectly killed people.
Only black people's lives matter.

The first of these can be verified or falsified. The others are beyond false - they're crazy. Do yourself a favor and stop trying to wrap your head around it.

I'm using the faster letter speeds spaced out a bit this time. More difficult but should work better eventually.

Apropos of the whole "worst song ever" debate from the other night, I think the only reason "we Built This City" is usually named is because it involved someone as talented as Grace Slick. It's clearly not objectively the worst song ever on its own merits - it's bad, the lyrics are insipid, but it's at least catchy. But we compare it to "White Rabbit" and "Somebody to Love," and it clearly doesn't measure up.

But the worst song ever is probably some 54 minute rock opera written by a guy who does the entire thing on theremin and spoken word. The worst song ever is something none of us have heard, and something we could hardly even comprehend.

(For the record, I don't even think "We Built This City" is the worst Starship song. I'll take it any day of the week over "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now.")

In a way, you have to appreciate those rare few who stick to their "art" - though many of them are complete psychos. No one would accuse, say, GG Allin of selling out. (Of course, no one would accuse any GG Allin song of being 'art,' either, but he certainly never sold out).

Another hottie who somewhat resembled Slick in both looks and vocals and who also put on a few pounds when she got older was Mariska Veres of Shocking Blue. I remember watching her sing "Venus" on some show and my then teenaged older brother being mesmerized by her:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPEhQugz-Ew

Veres, who died a few years ago, was unlike Slick in that she didn't take drugs and futhermore, she informed the guys in the band before she agreed to join that there would be no sex with them. It must have been tremendously frustrating for those dudes to watch her on stage night after night knowing that nooky was off limits.

A famous cemetery which was trashed by visiting pilgrims to Morrison's grave who not only left memorials by his grave but vandalized and wrote graffiti on neighboring headstones. I recall a French tour guide telling me that cleaning up after Morrison's fan club was a constant pain in the ass for the cemetery custodians.

The "Gay American" fails to understand the difference not only the difference between positive and negative rights i.e. that our system of government is to protect your inherent rights against official intrusion, but even the difference between "rights" and "feelings." That is, her government is imperfect so long as it lacks full authority to prevent anyone, pubic or private, from hurting your feelings.
Of course, any government with that mission statement is expressly totalitarian. But hey why quibble?

Worst one I worked with was Hurricane Hugo. For the first few days the only comms in and out of Puerto Rico was ham radio. The fedguv was sending all relief message traffic via the Hurricane Watch Net (hwn.org) until military comms could be airlifted in. Nothing like handling being a relay on a message that comes with a White House switchboard number to call to authenticate that "Secretary Cheney has been given the order...USAF C-130s will depart XXX (I think it was Pope) be prepared to receive them at San Juan Int'l Airport at XXX time".

409 Re: Hillary's age and health.
Yes, she is approaching 70 and age does explain some of her apparent frailties and appearance.

Having said that my wife is 71 (she was a cradle robber) and she is almost infinitely more healthy, active and vibrant than the would-be president.
If she has some type of fall--it's because she's doing stuff that Hillary would never do.

She goes to the gym, not for yoga but to take classes with women half her age. (She used to have three times the energy of a woman half her age--now she's down to twice the energy of a woman half her age.)

I guarantee I've taken many photographs where she is much more attractive than any of those airbrushed monstrosities of Hillary. And she usually looks genuinely happy.

Hillary's ugliness ain't just about the age.

Just wanted to say that.

428 For the week after 9/11, Mrs. JTB and I did emergency communications between rescuers and the Red Cross and Salvation Army. Turns out the various rescue agencies couldn't talk to each other; their equipment didn't allow it. And there wasn't space for all the needed materials on site at the Pentagon. A network was set up where hams accompanied the teams on site. When they needed something not immediately available, the hams got to us at the Red Cross or Salvation Army HQ to pass it along and the stuff would be loaded and trucked to the site. Sounds awkward but it worked. I heard the agencies can now talk to each other but I wonder if that's true.

The effort was massive, as you might expect. The materials requested could be anything from dog food for the canine units, ball caps, work gloves, body bags, batteries for flashlights, and many other things. I especially remember a request for a bottle of Mydol for one of the women MPs with cramps. She was well armed and got it quickly.

(Later that evening, snickering with his boyfriend) "Brad, I pick out the ugliest rags I can find for the old bitch to wear and she actually goes along with it! Can you believe it!"

I think it's a good idea for musicians not have sex with people in the
band. It makes good business sense. You don't have to have romantic
entanglements, jealousies, etc. That could ruin a band. Musicians are
often a quarrelsome/thin skinned lot without adding romance/ sex into
the mix,

As mentioned upthread, Lady Ga is an excellent musician -- who sounds like Bette Midler to me (using the same schticks to call attention to their real talent). I am fond of Pink and Lauper, strange voices that really work.

Adele is exceptional. My kids are fond of some boyband member who has a great range, can't remember the name offhand, but certainly good enough.

Found the youtube clip

https://youtu.be/NnPV9EEuJzM?t=5m

It sounds like he is actually cursing the reporters for trying to scare him with "just wait until he meets Obama".

He has a rant about how the USA (back in colonial era early 1900s) massacred 600,000 Moros in pacifying the Philippines, for which the USA has never apologized.
Then he castigates the Philippine press for being overly impressed with the USA, etc.

I usually hear three main reasons for not getting one:


1) Name and address in a publicly accessible database.


b. It's too expensive.


III: I've got the radio, but not getting a license, after TSHTF I won't need one.



I already addressed "1" earlier (use a PO Box). I hear "b" from people who won't hesitate to drop $2500 on a custom 6.5 Grendel with the best tacticool optics and accessories on the market. "III" really drives me nuts, because it's the functional equivalent of buying that 6.5 Grendel and just shoving in the safe on the assumption that when SHTF you can just pull it out and start shooting like Jerry Miculek. Just like there's a lot more to shooting than pointing and squeezing the trigger, there's a lot more to radio than pressing the button and talking...and like shooting, it's a perishable skill.

It's complicated:

Raised a military brat, Morrison's family moved often. He spent part of his childhood in San Diego. He completed third grade at a Fairfax County Elementary School Fairfax County, Virginia. His father was stationed at NAS Kingsville in 1952, he attended Charles H. Flato Elementary School in Kingsville, Texas. He continued at St. John's Methodist School in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and then Longfellow School Sixth Grade Graduation Program from San Diego, California.[14] In 1957, Morrison attended Alameda High School in Alameda, California.[15] He graduated from George Washington High School, now George Washington Middle School, in Alexandria, Virginia in June 1961.[14]

yeah, there are actually some "positive rights" ... government provides for common defense, which sort of includes the judicial system. Founders were quite aware that people needed protection FROM governments, including our own.
And obvious to all but the more recently educated, they can only "give" what they take by force, and that process itself is inefficient, even if there were no corruptocrats at every step.

Everybody lived there. Joni Mitchell, Graham Nash, Jackson Browne, David Crosby, I'm running out of memory.

But it was different from Haight Ashbury. The Haight was a brief scene that everyone heard about and all sorts of castoffs and runaways showed up and turned it into a homeless shelter.

Laurel Canyon was a secluded place where all the cool musicians hung out and jammed with each other.
