Thursday Night Overnight Open Thread (1/5/17)

Thursday night ONT.jpg

Really, it is the Thursday Night Overnight Thread. Thank you for stopping by. Let's get into The ONT.


Quotes of The Day

Quote I

American men don’t hate Lena Dunham for being ugly. American men hate Lena Dunham for being a liar and a feminist (but I repeat myself).

Have you notice that no Canadian men want her in Canada, either? They’ve already got way too many ugly feminist liars in Canada. Robert Stacy McCain


Quote II

"He that spareth his rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him chasteneth him betimes" (Proverbs 13:24)

Thanks Obama administration.

Over the last year, a Seattle school district in the throes of “restorative justice” experienced an alleged gang rape and several student deaths. Criminal charges, including murder, were filed against a group of students not yet out of middle school, reports the Seattle Times. Teachers’ unions in Fresno, Des Moines, New York City, and Indianapolis have all lodged complaints about the anti-discipline philosophy, according to Education Week. The Fresno teachers signed a petition pointing out that students are returned to class after cursing at teachers and physically assaulting them, without suffering any consequences. Fresno’s teachers have been injured trying to stop fights; some are retiring because teaching where severely disruptive students cannot be dislodged has become impossible. In Des Moines, students now hit and scream at each other and their teachers, reports the Des Moines Register.


Quote III

Man...is a tame or civilized animal; never the less, he requires proper instruction and a fortunate nature, and then of all animals he becomes the most divine and most civilized; but if he be insufficiently or ill- educated he is the most savage of earthly creatures. Plato


Quote IV

PPS The real choking hazard is the vise-like grip of government. Mark Steyn


Quote V

"Our universities are now the most hostile place in the country to actual thought." - Ace.

*****


A Happy Birthday wish to an American wonder, The Golden Gate Bridge. Construction began this day in 1933.

Terrorists have given us insight into their playbook. Will we use this information to defeat them? Time will tell.

Mitchell is a psychologist who served twenty-two years in the Air Force and who helped develop the CIA’s interrogation program. He only dealt with the top-tier terrorists and has spent more time with Khalid Sheikh Mohammed (KSM) than other interrogators.

Readers should have their eyes opened by what KSM told Mitchell. These KSM quotes support Donald Trump’s desire to have a new immigration policy. Mitchell recollects in the book, “The ‘practical’ way to defeat America was through immigration and by outbreeding non-Muslims. He said Jihadi-minded brothers would immigrate into the United States, taking advantage of the welfare system to support themselves while they spread their Jihadi message. They will wrap themselves in America's rights and laws for protection, ratchet up acceptance of Sharia law, and then, only when they were strong enough, rise up and violently impose Sharia from within. He said the brothers would relentlessly continue their attacks and the American people eventually would become so tired, so frightened, and so weary of war that they would just want it to end. ‘Eventually America will expose her neck to us for slaughter.’"


SolarGIS.png

Solar potential for the world. They haven't been around The ONT office lately. Its been pretty gloomy.


Research continues on the use of solar power. Is solar pushing coal for the cheapest power source crown? Time will tell. Your humble Cob has his doubts about full time electricity from solar and wind.

In 2016, countries from Chile to the United Arab Emirates broke records with deals to generate electricity from sunshine for less than 3 cents a kilowatt-hour, half the average global cost of coal power. Now, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Mexico are planning auctions and tenders for this year, aiming to drop prices even further. Taking advantage: Companies such as Italy’s Enel SpA and Dublin’s Mainstream Renewable Power, who gained experienced in Europe and now seek new markets abroad as subsidies dry up at home.


Don't let the door hit in you in the a$$ on the way out of the U.S.A. Here's hoping that you bleed the Canadian Student Loan program dry.

Hopefully they will go to Canada before they see what New York would like to do. Free College Education.*** (see fine lines)

As the New York Times notes, Cuomo's plan could apply to as many as 1 million New York families though it was not "immediately clear how the program would be paid for"...which is just a minor detail anyway.

Obviously Cuomo majored in pandering and not in economics.


The ONT Musical Interlude

Peace Train

Not enough Peace Train for you? How about another verse or two?


Minimum wage not good enough for you? Waiting on people is beneath you? Well, Special Snowflakes, be careful for what you wish for.

The age of automation is here.

The ONT thinks that young people should be introduced into automation, design, build and repair. These fields appear more lucrative than a major in Early American Lesbian Art with a minor in Gender Studies.

If you decide to go the route of an airline job, Be careful.


If these things are half as good as Thin Mints,
we have a problem. Girl Scouts introduce Símores. 100 years of cookie sales.

S’mores come in two versions. The first is a chocolate-covered graham cracker with a thin layer of marshmallow; the other is sandwich-style — two vanilla wafers with chocolate and marshmallow in between. People.com said the first has very subtle S’mores flavoring while the second tastes more like marshmallow and is perfect for dipping in milk.


painless_parker_1915_photo.png

Meet Painless Parker. The ONT has it on good authority that Nevergiveup is not related to him, America's most outrageous dentist.

Having a tooth pulled in the early 1900s was anything but awful. You’d climb up into the back of a traveling caravan, surrounded by a booming brass band, sparkling costumed women, and next to a bucket of pulled teeth carried by a dapper gentleman with a goatee. In time with the band's cheerful tune, out would come your tooth, guaranteed to be a painless—and even entertaining!—extraction.


Alcohol. The catalyst of many a Genius Award Winner.


Alcohol then sobriety. Also the catalyst of many a Genius Award Runner Up.


Here's hoping that this little bugger remembers Mother's Day with more than a card.
Feel Good Story of The Day.

I wonder how the CBC voted. They always go as a block, and are always totally with their half-black boyfriend, and so, did they all say NO?

35 Anecdotal to the Quote 2 story.

The daughter taught "at risk" students in Texas for the last decade and loved it. Said the kids needed someone to show that they cared about them and give them some discipline/order. She recently moved to Ohio when her Army husband got re-assigned. She taught for 6 months and quit to be a full time mom saying the kids up there are animals. In Youngstown at least.

++++

He's partially right. We do hate Dunham's lying, feminist* ways. But, the ugliness is also a factor, if only because we are told we are haters if we don't find her attractive. It's not just her lies; it is the demand that we have to pretend (lie) to find her attractive. She is ugly.

*I have nothing against feminists who are only about equal rights. But, the feminists who are all about the patriarchy and all that other bullshit are Gila Monsters.

68 If Lena Dunham were a nice, normal person who took some pride in her appearance, she could be attractive enough. However, she's as crazy as a road chicken, nasty, and seems to go out of her way to look unattractive.

Posted by: Michael the TEXIT at January 05, 2017 10:22 PM (nvMvs)

69 Lena is physically unattractive, but really not that bad. That is not the problem tho. She is hideous on the inside. That ugliness comes flooding out of her when she opens her mouth.
She is a feminist like Hitler was a supporter of Jews. Peas in a pod in a way. Power and control over others is and was the goal.

87 If these things are half as good as Thin Mints, we have a problem.

The Girl Scout thin mints used to be some of the best cookies out there, but they changed the recipe. I don't know what they did but those cookies pretty much have sucked for the last decade, if not longer. There are some cookies that they sell that are okay ... but none of them are worth the money and I don't like giving money to the Girl Scouts to have them indoctrinate young girls into the idiocy of leftism. Still, I end up having to buy a box or two eventually, because some friend has to be selling the cookies her daughter is supposed to sell ...

97 >>Lena is physically unattractive, but really not that bad. That is not
the problem tho. She is hideous on the inside. That ugliness comes
flooding out of her when she opens her mouth.

A lot of the hideousness comes from A] Her insistence upon forcing her flabby, intentionally unkempt, naked or near-naked body into public view *constantly*, and then B] Making the reaction to this exhibitionist compulsion a discussion about what is wrong with us.

Really think she has been abused/at minimum, suffering from mental problems. Nevertheless, she needs to just go away along with the Kardashians (who have at least had the good sense to properly monetize their exhibitionist tendencies).

You don't change oil as often as you do with a car and in the Winter the Diesel can freeze and become like jelly. That is if the fueling station doesn't have a winter mix, which happened to a friend when they filled up in the south and drove north in their RV.

Forget it, Jake. It's Bloomberg.

They're talking their book.

The sprawling Bloomberg organization includes an outfit specifically dedicated to structured finance for large "renewable energy" projects. And Mike B has absolutely no ethical qualms about having the Bloomberg "news" arm run uncritical puff pieces about exactly such projects. As we see here.

Take a look at all of the ridiculous, unfactual crap that spews out of Bloomberg's gun control initiatives. His "green energy" initiatives are no more honest than that.

Yep, you can probably cook the books to make it seem that solar panels can generate electricity at 3 cents/kWh, but what do you do when the Sun is obscured by clouds? Or at night? The usual solution is to bring on natural gas-fired turbines, which can spin up very quickly. But are not cheap to run.

If you look at overall life cycle costs, "green" power is neither cheap, nor "green".

I'm with her. You want land. The larger house and less taxes are just an added bonus. It's all about land, though - and a community that doesn't have insane zoning laws and wants to crawl up your ass for every little thing. I was surprised to find out that I had to get a permit to put a friggin garbage disposal in. I had never even contemplated such a thing. Some places have just gone apeshit with their local controls over everything and you really have to check that out, first. But lower taxes are a good indicator for less busybody regulations at the local level.

191 Reading about "Painless Parker" reminds me that there are things that were NOT better 100 or even 40 years ago. Dentistry is Exhibit A.

You know, from an evolutionary POV, teeth are a puzzle. How many thousands of years of intense suffering before people were even capable of caring for their teeth properly? Yeah, I know people didn't eat as much sugar as we do, but still - crack that tooth on something and you're in for a shitload of pain without the capability of calling Dr. Molar for an emergency visit. And basic care, like flossing, wasn't done until the 20th century. No wonder people in the old days were proud of still having their teeth if they lived to be old. And before braces, there had to be a lot of buck-toothed people.

Just seems odd that teeth are the one part of everyone's body that is always high maintenance. Other parts of your body might not give you grief until middle or old age if you're from good stock, but teeth will.

I raise a glass to our resident tooth-puller and cavity-filler.

"They used to make Diesel Suburbans. Sniff."

Several aftermarket vendors will offer you a modern Burb with a modern Duramax diesel powertrain transplanted into it from another GM truck product. If properly done, this can be a rock solid vehicle. That any GM tech in any service bay should be able to deal with.

I have thought about this at times. There is, however, my instinctive dislike of Government Motors. There's also the thought that if the Trump era is only a brief interregnum on America's long march into eco-Marxist madness, diesel is doomed.

Note that in the UK and EU, there was a huge official push for dieselization of ordinary passenger vehicles, because diesel emits less of that horrific substance, carbon dioxide, per passenger-kilometer. So: diesel vehicles got subsidized. A bunch of people bought diesel cars.

Now, though, officialdom in the UK and EU have decided that diesel emissions particulates are a risk to health and safety. So all of the suckers who bought these cars are stuck with punitive new regulations, fines, fees, taxes, and impaired resale value. Don't think that can't happen here, too.

I always like to approach big decisions like this by taking a piece of blank paper and making the longest possible list of pros and cons, then weighting them by importance. 20 minutes is a bigger deal than it may seem. Thinking about how it will be when you come home. Picking up items at the store? Dinner prep? Chilling time before "getting on top of chores" etc.
Remember that the most important consideration is quality of life, and love. And there are many components to that. It depends on how you each weigh your priorities. The closer you are to a match in those priorities, the better the prospects.

Oops.

All these democrats saying the Russians 'hacked' the 2016 election need to be asked, 'where were you in the sixties when anti-war protesters were giving aid and comfort to enemies of the US.

Where were you democrats in the seventies when you set up the Church commission and stopped CIA investigations into possible foreign involvement in anti-nuke, anti-war protests in the US. Where were you while the environmentalists where trying to shut down industry in the US?

Oh, that's right. You were on their side, giving aid and comfort to enemies of the US in the hope it would advance your political career.

The biggest problem with solar power is intermittence. Real electrical production has to be constantly available and predictable. As mentioned above solar will be a good generator when there are storage possibilities. At that point solar will be great because it can be localized. But until battery technology or some other storage medium becomes practical and efficient solar will just be good for hobby electrical production. And the more people that put solar on their own houses will only serve to destabilize the electrical grid as demand will go through great fluctuations - meaning that tons of electricity that will have to be online "just in case" will end up being wasted and at other times draw from the grid will be large enough to take things down.

Posted by: @votermom @vm at January 05, 2017 11:04 PM (Om16U)


I have yet to see a school system that actually has been improved by onerous taxes and money flowing in - no matter how that district might be "ranked".

The fact is that K-12 education shouldn't really cost more than it used to - in fact the costs should be going way down since so much of what the school needs to use in order to teach has dropped in price or gone totally free. But ... for some reason the schools keep spending more money and teaching less.

recommend using it, mine did and i finally got one, and it makes a huge
difference. truly.

they found port-side warehouse chambers with the remains of families
huddled inside. they represented every age and station in life, from
children to old age, from slave to patrician, and one thing they all had
was excellent teeth. remarkable.


Are you trying to say that the design for the oral b toothbrush was handed down from antiquity? Because I'm pretty certain I heard on Coast to Coast AM that it was reverse-engineered from the wreckage of the Roswell crash.

Society is produced by our wants, and government by our wickedness; the former promotes our happiness POSITIVELY by uniting our affections, the latter NEGATIVELY by restraining our vices.

All men are liable to error; and most men are, in many points, by passion or interest, under temptation to it. -John Locke

439 Evening Morons pardon my rant.
We've had 2 foster kids since July. We have made it abundantly clear to CPS from the day they were placed that we would absolutely, unequivocally adopt them. Were told by CPS we couldn't even SPEAK to an adoption lawyer until we had them 6 months. Every CPS visit "Can't wait until the end of Jan when we can move forward with the adoption!" Always the same CPS worker. She knew. Had long discussions about it. In Oct she announced that they had located the alleged father's sister through diligent hard work, made an effort to tell us how difficult it was locating her out of state because neither the kids mom or alleged father would cooperate. The sister named the brother of the great aunt's husband as a possible adoptive family. Basically nobody related to the kids at all. The sister had no idea her brother had kids until CPS called. CPS says that since it is the family's wishes, they have no choice but to transfer the kids. But, since it is an out of state transfer, it will take a couple of months. The transfer was approved and scheduled for Dec, but one of the kiddos got an ear infection and couldn't fly. Now has to see a specialist before he can get cleared to fly. We are approaching 6 months, so we decide to contact a lawyer. The lawyer says "Why didn't you contact me 3 months ago, we would have been able to have your adoption complete by now." Called the CPS worker and let her know our intentions. "We had no idea that you wanted to adopt, that is why I searched out other family." Fucking seriously? /rant off

Posted by: lindafell de spair deplorable xenophobic misogynistic redneck at January 05, 2017 11:23 PM (JNDQi)


No, 290 and South Congress.

They should just close that intersection. It's like bad Frogger for the homeless, and traffic too. My friend got messed up by a cement truck there; my wife was hit from behind on the entrance ramp to 290 there last year.

I officed at Penn Field last year, which is right by that intersection, and people in my office saw two pedestrian fatalities in a year. One witnessed the actual impact.

There's also a documentary that actually captures some people jumping.

Interesting factoid: most people jumped on the side facing the city.

Supposedly the city finally authorized putting a safety net in place that's supposed to stop people. Not sure if it's in place yet though.

532 @439 Cat Ass Trophy-How old are the children, if you can say, why do the parents not want them? How are the children holding up with this rejection?


Kiddos are 23 mos and 13 mos (Irish twins). Mom is an unrepentant drug addict. Had 3 kids taken previously. Told CPS that there is nothing wrong with using Meth, and she has no intention of stopping. Dad is a rapper wannabe fucktwit. Luckily they have no memory of either, both have been in CPS custody for a year.
The couple CPS wants to send them to is 65 years old and lives 1000 miles from any other relative to the kids. But CPS still says it is most important that the kids maintain their family and cultural identity. Since they aren't being transferred to an actual relative, that is BS. The real issue is, I believe, the kids are Mexican, and we are not. Culture, you know. They need to be raised celebrating Cinco, not the 4th.

539 Pro Tip: if you go to the website for your local NWS office, there should be a map on the main page that you can use to drill down into the details, and, with a click of the mouse, get a very localized weather forecast for your house, office or what have you.

i have one for the FOB, and for the two local ranges we go to most often here in The Valley (no sense going skeet, trap or sporting clays if it's windy as F), as well as for the place out in Corona where we go pheasant hunting.

*break*


It was a traffic accident from hell on the 290 construction project in the mid-'80s, that caused the Texas Department of Public Safety to prohibit motorcycle escorts of oversized/overweight loads in highway transit.

Only local P.D. officers can now escort said loads in local jurisdictions and urban/semi-urban settings.

Such as escorting wind turbine parts from the Port of Galveston to the North side of Houston, for transit to other parts of the country.

Four-wheel pilot-cars/trucks must then take over the escort role, between cities.

The wreck on 290, a motorcycle cop tried to "wave-onward" a 39 y/o female driver, in order to clear the way for an oncoming truck, hauling a 119 ft. long precast concrete beam for one of the 290 overpass segments.

She, seeing "motorcycle cop", hit the brakes and was immediately run over by the truck and it's combined 191,000 lb. weight. Crushed her car between the truck and a concrete Jersey Barrier.

The recovery of the body was done with great care and respect, and square bladed shovels, hand-trowels and many absorbent towels.

Ordinary non-permit weight load for an 18 wheeler is 80,000 lbs, full-up.

That motorcycle officer, though not at fault, was haunted always by the event.

I'd escorted about fifteen loads to that project from San Antonio Precast, and about a hundred more to the Beltway 8 project that was then the new thing in Houston.

I think 290 and South Congress is still about one of the most inherently dangerous major intersections in Texas, hands down.

Even in the F-150, it's best not to take it for granted.

606 590 very first sous vide steak tonight. I don't think it is possible to screw it up much. My only hard part was the searing. I need a better pan. Oh, and sear with butter which I didnt do but it was perfectly cooked and if anything the damn steak got plumper than at the start.
Posted by: free tibet, and all that other sh*t at January 06, 2017 12:09 AM (CL76w)


Hard to argue if it's perfectly cooked, but one possible point: I read an article about cast iron pans vs. stainless steel that pointed out that cast iron transmits heat by contact at a much higher rate. Apparently that's why they're so great for browning, and it would make them just the right tool for searing off a sous vide steak. Of course you could help yourself by using some oil/butter/ghee, and patting the sides of the steak with paper towels to dry its surface before putting it in the pan.

I'm a little miffed that generosity is supposed to differ from indiegogo by being more engaged for "emergencies"....and then using the same accounting department to disburse funds under the same strictures on the same timeframe with the same holiday shutdown. But I'll reserve any action until after the check clears.

610 277 Solar power is great and everything, but the big problem is that its transmission is shitty. To get the electricity from the location generated to where it is used causes a lot of it to be "lost". The longer the distance, the greater the loss.

Now look at that map. The places that are optimum for generating the electricity are so far away from where it would be used, it makes very little sense.

Posted by: somejoe at January 06, 2017 12:16 AM (22if9)

There are always losses when transmitting power over long distances. Ohm's Law is the law around here.

But you can afford some losses when transmitting hundreds of megawatts from a cheap coal or nuclear power plant, which is a point source. With solar or wind, you have to first gather in the power from distributed generators, before you can distribute it. So your losses are at least doubled, and on a pricier product, to boot.

Yes. That is the reason for high voltage transmission lines.

Feeder lines are counted in the cost of building a power plant. A conventional power plant still makes a profit when all is said and done. A solar power plant only makes a profit with massive subsidies.

Simple recipe, tricky dough. Takes practice. I just made another batch for the PA branch of the family in anticipation of my drive up on Saturday, weather permitting. For some reason it kept sucking flour. A lot depends on the moisture content of the flour, so the amount varies. Too little and they're porous - too much and they're tough.

We didn't have a lot of LPs, but I'm pretty sure almost everything was stereo. We had one of those great cabinets made of beautiful wood, with the built in speakers on either side. My brother had to drag my dad kicking and screaming into the CD era.
Hell, my ex had to drag ME kicking and screaming into the CD era.


I was an early adopter of CD's. As soon as I could find a player under $200, I bought it. Then marvelled at the 20 or so choices of CD's I could buy.

The difference in losses is the nature of Solar electricity. Because Solar is just a crappy, overly expensive, low density, irregular power source, It requires extra work to get it into a generally useful form. Even without storage considerations you have to assemble all the low density bits and bobs into a useful, transmittable chunk of juice.

Conventionally generated electricity loses are mostly just line losses, mainly in the transmission lines. They produce salable electricity 24 hours a day with no expensive storage required.

I remembered the controversy from back in the 80's so just now went looking around the internet - Yusef's wiki page and a number of pages linked to it go into detail. Basically he was asked about the fatwa on Rushdie and said that he agreed, death was the punishment for blasphemy.

Once he started catching serious heat for it he claimed the whole thing was a joke. But he left the music world for quite a while, sold his guitars, and has only recently decided to get back in as 'Yusef".

764 That's the thing about Cali - Cthulhu and I have been chatting off and on for years about leaving Cali, since I live in Nashville, which is a common home for SoCal refugees. It's a great city, but if you love Southern California for what it is in terms of nature and culture, you can't get that anywhere else, no matter how much further your dollar goes elsewhere. I remember when Nissan USA moved their HQ here and the split that it created in the workforce.

767 765 That's the thing about Cali - Cthulhu and I have been chatting off and on for years about leaving Cali, since I live in Nashville, which is a common home for SoCal refugees. It's a great city, but if you love Southern California for what it is in terms of nature and culture, you can't get that anywhere else, no matter how much further your dollar goes elsewhere. I remember when Nissan USA moved their HQ here and the split that it created in the workforce. Those who love SoCal stayed, and those who didn't moved here and were delighted to get huge houses and better schools for 1/2 the price they were paying. It all came down to priorities and personal value.

SoCal has a pretty-much optimal climate for humans. It's shared with Israel, parts of paraguay, bits of Australia, and so on. So, why would I desire to live in a suboptimal weather climate??? Because it'd be a better political/economic climate.

out here, the chaparral HAS to burn on a routine basis... but man stops it, so, when it DOES burn, there's so much fuel, even the top soil burns and the fires go all the way to the ocean in some places.

same for western forests, and the redwoods. if they don't have regular small fires every so often, brush and other flammables build up, diseased trees don't get killed off, and then, when you finally DO have a fire, everything goes up in smoke.

we're stupid like that.

Research continues on the use of solar power. Is solar pushing coal for the cheapest power source crown? Time will tell. Your humble Cob has his doubts about full time electricity from solar and wind.


That 3 cents/kw-hr number is without a doubt absolute BS. Solar generation is very close to be most expensive electricity there is. It is also among the most unreliable there is.


The real "cheapest" electricity is hydro but you will never hear any watermelon going for that.

796 The roof-top solar arrays I have seen advertised costs around $20,000 installed. They do not provide enough power to run your house even in the day time if you are
running a heat pump for heating or cooling.


And their expected lifetime is only about 10 years. Now those numbers are oold because I have been gone from the industry about 10 years. But I don't suppose the have changed much.


At those rates you don't reach pay-off on them until about 15 to 20 years in the Southeast. IOW, you lose money. Now in Southern CA that payoff is reached much earlier. But that is because their electric rates used to be about triple ours.

He said it was a huge boondoggle that was costing the city $500M per year. And was hundreds of thousands of dollars HIGHER than if they just paid standard GA Power prices. And they were locked in to a contract for 5 years and did they did not even own the solar arrays.

More noos. Today is Friday, January 06, 2017. On this day in 1974 in response to the 1973 oil crisis, daylight saving time commenced nearly four months early in the United States. An incredibly stupid act from an all Democrat Congress and the most liberal Republican to ever occupy the WH, Richard Nixon. Daylight savings time is a fraud. It has never been shown to save one iota of energy and even if it did, how in the hell would this save "oil". DST is kept in place to make merchants happy and even any possible gain from that is dubious.

847 Snow-Armageddon to arrive in Atlanta this evening. Have sleds ready for the kids and the Jeep all gassed up to go find some good hills. If this falls apart or just a dusting like other false alarms past couple years there is going to be hell to pay.

850 Now I'm hearing panicked reports about all the job losses (3million!) that will happen if Obamacare is repealed.

What will the left try next, a plague of locust? Three days of impenetrable darkness? Pestilence?

855 Back in the late 80s while I was out in Eastern KY flying a forestry surveillance route I had a chance to fly a day trip into Knoxville. It was beautiful.

859 "The latest on the DNC Russian hack. Get this; the FBI says they did not analyze the DNC servers because the DNC refused to give them to them to analyze. In effect, they knew the "Russian Election Hack" was BS."

I kind of remember this from months ago when it first broke; private "security consultants" blamed it on "Russian hackers" based on a typo in the code somewhere .... so this crapola is all old news served up reheated, huh ?
What a surprise.

Gaslighting us 24/365.

So now we can add "ranchers out West" to "disillusioned Jewish voters" among groups that Trump will be happy to add as prospective new supporters!

CO & NV need some GOP attention anyway. Both were disappointments in '16. HRC carried CO & the GOP should've picked up a NV senate seat.

861 Morning, all.

This is Nan Patterson:

http://tinyurl.com/juuvjjj

One of the original "Florodora Sextette," she became the mistress of gambler Caesar Young. On the morning of June 4, 1904, she was in a hansom can with Caesar, driving down to the Hudson River pier, where Caesar was to meet his wife before taking her on a transatlantic trip.

At the intersection of West Broadway and Franklin, bystanders were shocked to hear a pistol shot ring out and Patterson wail, "why did you do this to me?" Police rushing to the cab found Caesar, his head in Patterson's lap, dying from a bullet to the chest.

A hysterical Patterson claimed that Caesar, despondent over her resolve to leave him, had committed suicide. The police, however, had their suspicions - not only had the bullet in the gambler's chest entered at an impossible angle for suicide, Caesar's gun was still in his pocket.

Patterson was put on trial for murder, twice, but both times got off because of a hung jury. And she went free.

In 1959, Newman Levy, son of Patterson's defense lawyer Abraham Levy, penned The Nan Patterson Case; I've never read it, so I don't know whether he thinks she was guilty or not.

Here's a link to a NYT article from December 24, 1904 concerning the first mistrial:

862 >>>A hog wild President should not be able to make such drastic changes on their way out the door.


First order of business for the new administration should be to conduct a thorough review of everything Obama has done since the election and undoing as much of it as possible.
