1 Police apparently still searching for cop killer in Kentucky woods .Link to scanner urn in nik. Apparently (according to another site) have his name picture. He had his phone with him, may still have. Had made at least one call, didn't talk, but connected. Police have told everyone in the area to stay inside.

Good Morning Morons. Today is Monday, September 14, 2015. On this day in 1814 the poem Defence of Fort McHenry was written by Francis Scott Key. The poem was later used as the lyrics of The Star-Spangled Banner.

4 *Except for the Sidney Blumenthal emails, which he produced under subpoena and she didnt. Also except for the fact she tried to wioe her email server after she herself received subpoenas. Also except for the fact the Justice Department is a branch office of the Democrat Party and cannot be trusted to be honest in anything at all. Other than those things, this report is totally believable.

If she is going to federal court she will have to sign a statement that she will rule in accordance with the written law and will not do "nullification". Then if they don't like her ruling they can go for false swearing. Some States also do this.

He's not the only Supreme that feels that way. Ginsburg has cited foreign law in her rulings.

God bless and protect the state of Israel!

If the US government were in place when God called Moses, the conversion would have gone something like this, God said, "Moses, I have some good news and some bad news for you. The good news is that you are going to lead my people out of Egypt, and you are going to have to part the Red Sea to do it."

"What's the bad news?," Moses asked.

"You will have to fill out all the environmental impact studies before leaving."

"You're right. US law is evil and unjust. We should adopt Saudi and Iranian law. No more voting rights for women."

I'd consider that almost at the level of repealing the 17th Amendment as a move toward restoring the original balance of our system.

The government is the biggest special interest in the country. It protects its own interests, and unionized bureaucrats function as a self-serving organism (see Lerner, Lois and all the other little Hitlers that make strikes against the rights of the people to protect their power and funding).

Walker's moves are great and if he were President he might be the one to actually be able to pull it off.

But he announced his candidacy way too late, IMHO and then Trump has stolen all the oxygen.

Too bad. He was among the ones I support. I was anticipating and praying for a Cruz/Walker ticket.

Oh well, it's his own damn fault for not announcing sooner, Trump or no Trump.

I think Walker's been sabotaged by the consultant class. His whole campaign's been so limp and unlike his previous character as a governor that it's just... well, completely forgettable.
You don't win the Presidency without taking risks, and he's been playing it safe since he started.

The best cup of coffee, for me, comes from using one of those single-cup brewers.. I can make enough for my travel mug..

This Keurig thing has been makingmenutso.

OK.

You have 3 settings - large, medium and small. More water to less water.

There is absolutely no correlation (that I could find) between coffee pod and setting.

Is the idea that if you use one pod on the small setting that the coffee is stronger?

Do you get more coffee out of the pod if you run more water through it?

I have taken to using one pod (because they are so stupid expensive) and run it through on the 'large' setting then re-run it on the 'small' setting. I get a larger cup of coffee and imagine that I am getting over on the Scandi-Coffee-Industrial Complex.

Small victories.

143 Just finished off a mug of coffee out of my Keurig 2.0.

It makes "carafe" size loads, in addition to the pods. Carafe allows me to fill up my go mug (20 ounces), and have one good size cup in the morn.

Single serving pods work fine enough, but the largest setting is 8 ounces. If I use stronger coffee, it makes a decent cup, but it fills only half a mug. So... multiple runs.

How is the coffee?

Depends on the pod used. I would suggest NOT buying anything with a name like Starbucks or Folgers on it. Different brands, different outcomes.

Biggest problem for the carafe settings is the lack of variety. Right now there are few of the carafe pods that are good enough to buy regularly, especially the ones that are branded by Keurig (Green Mountain, Tulley's).

All in all, much better than drip brewers.

That suggests to me a potential solution to this issue.

After an honorable discharge, they can be admitted. Any men who do not wish to enlist are given a quick bus ride to the border.

I fill my own pods.. but some Keurig makers don't allow that.

But it doesn't matter. When you brew anything larger than the small cup size, you will notice the brew coming out will be almost clear near the end. You have used up all the coffee can give after the small cup size.. it's simply a limitation of the pod size.

If you like a bold cup of coffee, you gotta brew 2 small pods for a mug. And, for me, that is simply too expensive if buying pods and kinda defeats the purpose of "simplicity".

If you want the best coffee maker on the market, try the Jura Impressa C-60. I have the older (now unavailable) model and I've been impressed on how the service is.

In 8 years, we have sent the machine back twice for minor items, and each time they totally rebuild it like new. First time was about $80 charge, second time for free.

Best coffee, no hassle.

Identity theft is a federal crime:


18 U.S.C. § 1028(a)(7). This offense, in most circumstances, carries a
maximum term of 15 years' imprisonment, a fine, and criminal forfeiture
of any personal property used or intended to be used to commit the
offense.

243 We covered that last week. Technically they can not get federal welfare. So what they do is file on behalf of their anchor baby and the baby gets it.
__________________

Technically it's true that illegal aliens are not legally entitled to many federal welfare benefits, but what happens in actual practice, especially since Obama took office, is that the illegal alien simply checks "yes" on the question on the welfare application form that asks "Are you a U.S. citizen or legal resident?" In most instances, nobody requires them to actually prove U.S. citizenship, and they know it. So they lie.

Also, the Obama administration has admitted that it knowingly -- knowingly -- pays out billions of dollars every year in food stamps to illegal aliens, even though illegal aliens are not legally eligible to receive them. The Obama administration also spends millions of dollars a year advertising, in Mexico and in Spanish-language ads, that illegal aliens can get food stamps in the U.S.

In addition to food stamps, the Obama administration has also admitted that it pays billions of dollars a year in "tax credits" to illegal aliens in the U.S. The administration has also admitted that it pays billions of dollars a year in Medicare Part D prescription drug benefits to illegal aliens in the U.S.

If you add up all the known welfare payments to illegal aliens, plus all the legal "refugee" welfare benefits, the amount of U.S. taxpayer dollars being transferred to low-income foreigners in the U.S. every year would be absolutely staggering.

244 The debates are coming up on Wednesday and 14 of the 16 people running want to break out of the pack.

This isn't rocket science.

Trump shot to the lead by taking immigration on and saying he'll build a wall.

All the others need to do is pick a topic and take a bold stance that will change everyone's life for the better.

If someone would grab hold of the Fair Tax Plan, they could ride it into the lead. Free electricity using the 500 nuke plant idea would do it.

One way or another, if someone wants to get elected as president they have to capture the imagination of the public. Giving stock answers and playing defense trying not to make a mistake during the debates will keep the weak at 1 or 2 percent.

248 Dad can remember the view of our city from the brand-new high level bridge, on wintry mornings in the 30's. There was a solid pall of paper-and-cardboard smoke from homeowners getting their coal furnaces lit. The big malleable-iron factories were the clean spot.

But if you know how to do it, an anthracite furnace fire is about as clean as gas.

So it was with percolators. Yes, you can make good coffee in one. But by my early coffee-drinking days, the requisite skills were lost, by most. And like those furnace-tenders who throw mine-run slack and corncobs in with the Phoebe Snow Egg, people boiled the damnedest stuff and bragged how cheap their coffee was.

Now that we know where JoeDiMaggio has really gone, you have to admit, Mister Coffee changed things a lot. Invented in Cleveland.

250 The great English Baptist evangelist, Charles Spurgeon, had to deal with a woman who had the reputation of being a regular virago. She cornered him and gave him a lengthy tongue lashing.

Spurgeon smiled and said, Yes, thank you; I am quite well. I hope you are the same."

The woman persisted in vilifying him. Still smiling Spurgeon replied, "Yes, it does look rather as if it's going to rain. I think I had better be getting on."

"Bless the man!" the woman exclaimed, "he's as deaf as a post; What's the use of storming at him."

(He wasn't deaf.)

267 Questions we need to ask Presidential candidates:



Describe your vision of America. What part can you bring about ?



The courts have said I can have privacy in all matters where I can
expect privacy. When can I expect privacy ?



Who are the "middle class" ? Be specific



Do you have any "executive experience" ? How big was this organization
(people/revenues) ?



What kind of grades did you get in school for "working well with others" ?



As far as I know there is no official definition and I've been told in
some languages it is just not defined, so please .. define "fair"



Please define "infrastructure"



What was the hardest non-governmental job you have ever had ?



Are you a "victim" ?



Describe all the parts of the "Obama Doctrine"
(is this possible ?)


Explain how President Obama's "Iran Deal" doesn't undermine the
fundamental soundness of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty by having
the Security Council allow a signing state to ignore it's provisions and
continue to enrich.



How important are "renewables", such as ethanol and bio-mass, to
"sustainability" in your administration's climate policy ?

(This is a trick question because most sustainability efforts involve
continued use of carbon-based energy whose production and use have an
even larger carbon footprint)



Explain the difference between Quds and Scuds.
(Trump question)


Are there any assurances that appear to have been inferred or implied
during the campaign that you feel you won't be able to back up with
action once in office ?



When should you and your staff be held responsible, and what form would
"being held responsible" take ?


What is your plan to deal with a Higgs Boson disaster ?

284 Re: Syrian Refugees

There is no conflict between the Christian desire to see good done by the refugees and the American desire not to get all blowed up by terrorists. None.

When a famine struck Jerusalem and environs in the 1st C, Christians elsewhere didn't say "Oh, Christians in Jerusalem, migrate en masse into our cities!" They took up donations and sent them to the church in Jerusalem so that people could be fed.

Similarly, there is no reason to take in refugees on some mass scale; rather things should be done in their region to make their lives more liveable and secure.

If you want to help the refugees in Syria, the best thing to do put pressure on surrounding governments to take them in (yes, temporarily), and for charitable-minded folks in the US to send donations to help those refugee camps.

If you don't trust those governments, then, instead, international charitable organizations (Red Cross/Star/Crescent, Healing Hands International, etc.) can open their own refugee camps and charitable-minded folks in the US can fund *them.*

I hereby second JJ Sefton's blessing, too... Meanwhile, re coffee: If you have a GFS market nearby, try their whole bean Italian roast; it's a great dark roast, and at $11.99 for two pounds (not the new 12oz "price point pound" pioneered by Starbucks and the like) and often on sale for $9.99, it's a steal. Grind it very finely; enough beans to cover the blades is enough for a strong pot. Be sure the paper filter is touching the sides of the basket, and if you haven't lately, wash out the basket and be sure the check ball in the bottom of the basket is not clogged. Failure to monitor the check ball and finely-ground coffee will combine to make a hot mess of epic proportions, and while you may find yourself wide awake as you deal with said mess, it isn't nearly as enjoyable as a really strong cup of coffee...
