The ONT Strikes Back [Weirddave]

The Importance of Proper Grammar and Spelling

Clever beer ad

Speaking of beer, I'd say this fellow has had too many.

I've been drunk before. I may even have been that drunk back in the day once or twice, but never at 10:45 AM on a Tuesday.

Hot Dog!

Some of these look pretty good. Some of them do not. I've lived in Baltimore for my entire life, and I've never heard of the "Baltimore Dog". If that's a thing here, I've managed to miss it.

How to Cure a Depression

This is one of those things that always annoys me. Anytime there is an economic downturn, everybody starts running around in a huge Muppet flail screaming “THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO FIX THIS!”. Well, no. No it doesn't, and in fact doing nothing WILL fix the problem. Don't believe me? It's been tried before.

Of course, the 1920–1921 depression was painful. After all, the rate of unemployment rate peaked at 11.7 percent in 1921, yet would drop to 6.7 percent in 1921 and was down to 2.4 percent by 1923. The “Roaring Twenties,” if contemporary historians would only not revise the truth, were arguably the most prosperous decade in America’s history. And while some of this prosperity was as Murphy cited, “illusory — the result of subsequent Fed inflation” it nevertheless “purged the rottenness out of the system” during the 1920–1921 depression, thus providing a solid framework for sustainable economic growth akin to Reaganomics during the 1980’s, but with far less debt. What would become the most rapid ascent from a depression as a result of the disastrous postwar twilight of the Wilson presidency and his immediate predecessor Harding resulted in his policies and himself achieving substantial popularity. In 1924, he was the beneficiary of what was becoming known as “Coolidge prosperity,” he polled with higher than 54 percent of the popular vote to win a three-way race.

They never learn. *Shakes head*

32 Hey everybody.

I was really late to the food thread earlier today, so I hope it's okay if I post these here:

- I made myself some spicy garlic shrimp. De-lish, but gotta admit the sauces especially made the meal.

- And re Oyster Beer: yup. I feel the same way about coconut shrimp. I love coconut and I love shrimp... but not together. I like to keep my sweets and savories mostly separate.

Posted by: garrett at August 07, 2016 10:27 PM (HJQI1)

71 I do like that Bourdain covers the venues down to the street food level, on up to the Michelin rated chefs.

It'd be crazy lotto money, but I'd like to keep a diary of where Bourdain and Fieri go to some of those eateries, and just do a food tour of my own.

'Cause some of that food just looks way too good to pass up.

Anyway, ass or not, I give Bourdain some credit for being willing to do some shooting with Nugent as well as some ordinary New Mexico gunnies, who did a good-enough job in positively inculcating Bourdain as to some shooty goodness.

While I doubt that Bourdain is as solid on the 2nd as we on this Schmaht Militaruh Blahg, well....I also sense that he's at least now ambivalent on the issue. It's likely that prior to those positive experiences, he was quite the anti-2A sort.

Don't you wish all the rest of the libtard media would give us half the consideration that he did by being willing to learn 'bout something totally outside his scope knowledge and experience?

So, asshole or not, I cut him some slack, here. Frankly, I think with the right encouragement, some intrepid 2A type could drag him fully away from the dark side. At least, on that topic.

But that's a damn big topic. I'd count it a win if it happens.

72 I have lived in Columbus, Georgia almost all of my life, and what the graphic calls the "Georgia" is well known here as a "scrambled dog." I've been eating them since before I was born! I've never really seen them outside of Columbus. The best scrambled dogs are at Dinglewood Pharmacy's lunch counter, across the street from the AFLAC world headquarters. Secret recipe chili, sliced cheese, onions, pickles, oyster crackers, and mustard, but no ketchup! Yum!

The Polock Johnny's restaurants are now closed.


But, several other restaurants carry the dogs on their menus.
And the dogs can still be bought in some grocery stores.
And then grilled at home.

102 The depression of 1920 or '21 or whenever it was was something. It was the worst deflation we've ever experienced, in terms of short range drop in price level (inflation caused by WWI spending was YUGE as well).

The deflation of the Great Depression wasn't this bad, at least for the year-over-year metric. I forget exactly, the cumulative drop of GD may have be greater, percentage wise, but the deflation of '20 was the worst spike you'll see on the graphs.

And the federal govt's response was actually the opposite of the Keynesian prescription. They cut spending (and taxes), but cut spending more, resulting in a drop in govt. debt -- hell may have paid off existing debt almost. And the Fed, they *raised rates*. And the Roaring Twenties followed.

This is the exact opposite of the Keynesian prescription, the thought of doing this would make Krugman's head explode raving about how stupid anyone would be to do this.

I've never tried them as I'd rather have something Chinese from a Chinese bakery but maybe they appeal to the Oriental clientele because hot dogs are exotic foreign cuisine for them?

My wife is from Toledo and I had never been (married 19 yrs, been to Toledo countless times) until a recent trip to visit MIL in hospital.

Profoundly disappointing. I'm not one who thinks chili has to taste one certain way. I like it slightly sweet, all savory, beans..no beans. But Packo's chili was not good. Very heavy on the cumin, and I like cumin, and possibly some other spice that made it taste....soapy... is the best word I can come up with.

She has these sort of vague memories of particular things during that 1 - 1.5 month period, but it's like a dream to her, not very real.

Her memory starts going right after she came home from rehab. Her knee surgery and her stay in the rehab facility, she remembers well. She remembers a few things right when she got home, but not much, and nothing really when she went out of her mind.

197 Ahh, Cincinnati chili. I knew it would get a mention. It starts many an argument in these parts (I live in Columbus). It's the quintessential acquired taste. People who like it really like it. People who hate it seem to actively enjoy hating it.

I like GD and I like Cincy chili, but I don't argue such things. Seems silly to me.

242 I like Texas Pete on hot dogs. Back in my younger days, I used to heat lunch all the time at this country store joint. Lots of "color". Some gals ran the joint, and we all had fun. One of them was going to get me back for a little stunt I pulled on her.

When I ordered my two hot dogs, she lathered on the Texas Pete underneath the chili. As usual, I got the bottle on the table and put my usual dose on top. She figured I was going to take a bite, then spit it out and much merriment was going to be had. She would then fix me a couple correctly.

It didn't phase me. I thought it was a little more hot than usual, but thought maybe I'd put more than I thought.

Her mouth hung open and she finally told me what she'd done. "You're not human!", she said.

I used to love the Olympics and really looked forward to it. Now I couldn't care less, with all the over-commercialized bullshit, professional athletes, and dumber-than-ever reporters who don't know shit from a shuttlecock rambling on about things they couldn't be arsed to educate themselves about.

Posted by: Insomniac at August 07, 2016 11:03 PM (0mRoj)
------------------------

There are still some great amateur athletes in there and a lot of excitement and suspense. The work you can see is unbelievable.

The reporters doing the post-event interviews are dumb as dirt, but the commentators have been pretty good on the swimmers and gymnasts. Fencing too as I recall.

Any event with professionals in them I'll avoid like the Oscars.

And I still will watch some of the studio stuff. Last night I cracked up when NBC went back to Tiny Bob and the camera angle was from the floor and far across the studio. Nice try, but Bob is STILL SHORT. Get your CGI people on this, NBC, the camera tricks will not work if you insist to try to convince us that Bob be big.

Anytime there is an economic downturn, everybody starts running
around in a huge Muppet flail screaming "THE GOVERNMENT HAS TO FIX
THIS!". Well, no. No it doesn't, and in fact doing nothing WILL fix the
problem.

Actually, almost always, when we are in a downturn
it is the result of something government has done. So there is one thing
that government can do to fix the problem. Undo whatever horrible thing
they did to screw things up in the first place and let the economy get
back to it's (relatively) unmanipulated state.

Presidential nominee dies or become incapacitated before the popular election: party can choose another nominee, if there's time before the ballots are printed.

Popular vote winner dies before Electoral college meets. That is the presumptive president-elect dies before he becomes the official president-elect: It's up the electoral college.

Electoral college winner dies before electoral votes are counted. This is a mess. I'm not exactly sure.

Electoral college winner dies before inauguration: Vice-President elect becomes president. New Vice president is chosen by nomination and confirmation by the whole Congress.

Actually... a lot of that has not been tested.... and State laws intersect with the election...

Electoral College is many States is bound to vote for who is selected via the Ballot.... and State Law dictates when the Ballot is closed...

And remember... the House must sign off on the Electoral College vote... usually is just a pro forma vote... but if people started dyin.... that could throw a monkey wrench into things as well.

Seems that if the electoral college voted for someone but they died before the House vote... and the House can ONLY vote for people who got electoral votes... things could get weird...

Only if you allow Judicars.... ie Judicial Fencers...

In the 1600s when the Law still allowed the Might is Right ideal, so you could win your court case via a trial by combat...

There was a profession called the Judicars... they were essentially hired mercenaries who could fight as your 'Champion'.... and some believe this was the start of the modern concept of the 'Judiciary'....

They are good. I became a fan during the time I lived in Chicago and generally try to grab one at Portillo's every time I am back there on business. They are also easy to make at home, although you need to buy "sport peppers" online if you don't live in the Chicago area (available on Amazon). Neon relish tastes the same as regular sweet relish, and regular buns work just as well as poppyseed buns. The very light sprinkle of celery salt does add something, so don't skip that. Although Chicago is dominated by Vienna Beef hot dogs in general, use whatever your favorite dog is. Hebrew National probably makes the closest substitute.

475 The really iffy, unknown case is indeed if the winner of the electoral college dies after the electors have voted, but before Congress officially counts and certifies them.

The winner of the presidential contest would then be dead. Congress could declare votes for the dead guy are invalid and not counted. There is precedent for this, but not for the winner, with back in the past, COngress rejecting a number of votes for a candidate who had died. He wasn't the winner, so it didn't matter.

Does majority of the EC college mean majority of *valid votes*. If that's the case, then the loser would win.

Or do they throw it to the House....and all that.

The thing is, the Founding Fathers foresaw this tendency. They documented the enumerated powers of the Federal Government in Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution. Enumerated means "on a list" -- the Founders explicitly said that the Government could do this list of things AND NOTHING ELSE. There are about 68 of them.

When it came to adopting the Bill of Rights (first 10 Amendments), the big debate was whether spelling out bright lines about what the Feds CANNOT do would be read as infinitely expanding the 68-or-so things that the Feds explicitly CAN do.

The compromise reached was that there would be a Bill of Rights, but among them would be "The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be
construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people." and "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor
prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively,
or to the people." Both should have been prefaced with, "In case you retards can't read...."

Fast forward 200+ years, and the out-of-control Feral Government of the US thinks that the only boundaries to their ever increasing fiefdoms are in the first 8 Amendments to the Constitution, and they're perpetually trying to weasel-word them down to minimal hindrances.

There is nothing in the Constitution that would allow the Federal government to regulate agriculture, labor, wage-and-hour laws, healthcare, the environment, great swathes of land in western states, education, air travel, space travel, diseases, or communications. The Founding Fathers thought about several of these things and said that great masses of politicians would only fuck them up.....and so they have.

Communists were big on that too. Felix Rodriguez reported that Che's handler in the Bolivian jungle was a Russian woman, and when she drowned in a river and her body was recovered by the Bolivian military, she had meticulous reports drawn up on what they were doing.

At this point they were setting off grenades in markets so they could steal food, so you can guess how anal you have to be to write voluminous reports about that.

I think it is an organizational mindset. When you have to justify your actions no matter what the outcome, you gotta document, document and document - especially if failure to do it "right" means a bullet in the back of your neck. When you are rewarded solely on your success, you can be more relaxed.

and Electoral College is many States is bound to vote for who is selected via the Ballot.... and State Law dictates when the Ballot is closed...

And remember... the House must sign off on the Electoral College vote... usually is just a pro forma vote... but if people started dyin.... that could throw a monkey wrench into things as well.

Seems that if the electoral college voted for someone but they died before the House vote... and the House can ONLY vote for people who got electoral votes... things could get weird...

518 Just wanted to extrapolate a little on the situation...

Mom had an annual mammogram last Monday, and they found a suspicious spot. She had the same suspicious spot last year, but after the follow up ultrasound, they determined it was nothing.

Well, this year, there was the same suspicious spot, only bigger. So, they called her back for a followup. So, our first thought was "We've been through this before it's probably nothing, just playing it safe."

Then, she gets the call that they need to biopsy it. Still, we figure the odds are in our favor, because most biopsies come back benign. Not this.

They told her it's treatable and slow-growing. But, they also said she will probably have to have chemo, which sounds like maybe a little more serious than treatable and slow-growing. They took other ultrasounds and didn't see anything, but who knows.

Anyway, she has her MRI, then Friday she is meeting with surgeons/oncologists about the plans.

I mean...I know a lot of people beat this cancer. But, everytime I've thought positive so far, I've been let down. I hate to do it again.

God, I hate cancer.

"Section 4. The Congress may by law provide for the case of the death of any of the persons from whom the House of Representatives may choose a President whenever the right of choice shall have devolved upon them, and for the case of the death of any of the persons from whom the Senate may choose a Vice President whenever the right of choice shall have devolved upon them."

Well, this year, there was the same suspicious spot, only bigger.
So, they called her back for a followup. So, our first thought was
"We've been through this before it's probably nothing, just playing it
safe."



Then, she gets the call that they need to biopsy it. Still, we
figure the odds are in our favor, because most biopsies come back
benign. Not this.



They told her it's treatable and slow-growing. But, they also said
she will probably have to have chemo, which sounds like maybe a little
more serious than treatable and slow-growing. They took other
ultrasounds and didn't see anything, but who knows.



Anyway, she has her MRI, then Friday she is meeting with surgeons/oncologists about the plans.



I mean...I know a lot of people beat this cancer. But, everytime
I've thought positive so far, I've been let down. I hate to do it again.




God, I hate cancer.

Everybody hates cancer, but I have a helpful suggestion: take notes and/or record the consults. You're going to have waves of fatigue and terror swashing through them and want to make difficult, fact-based decisions based on your understanding. So don't just record them in your terrified, tired brain -- get the discussions documented in such a way that you can refer to them later. [And, of course, if you're not going to be in this meeting, the advice would be for your mom.]

I was, as usual, shamelessly eavesdropping while at Bryce Canyon.....and overheard a guide saying that a drop of rain falling on the rim of Bryce Canyon would eventually find its way into the Great Basin and evaporate....but one falling just an inch away into the canyon would eventually find its way to the Colorado River and into the Gulf of Mexico.

550 >> I've always thought that one became the President-elect was elected >> by the Electors.

It's an open question. One view is that, yes, the President-elect is the winner of the EC vote even before they are officially counted and certified. And Congress has no discretion. If the winner is dead, then the dead winner must be officially certified. Then the 20th kicks in.

The other view is no, this doesn't count.

The committee reporting on the 20th Amendment did endorse the former view, apparently, saying the president-elect is the one with the majority of electoral votes or the winner if it's thrown to the House.

Most people don't realize this, but the United States of America does not hold a national election.

They are all state elections conducted by the states, including for elected positions of Elector, Senator, or Representative in Congress.

The wisdom of the Electoral College is that a candidate doesn't just need an intense, but narrow, majority, but have broader support in order to win.

585 Back from a week in Florida in a RV. Saint George Island state park was ok. The mosquitos were dense. You couldn't step outside without being swarmed. We were covered in bites the first day plus it was about a 1/2 mile walk to the beach from our campsite. We don't tow a vehicle with our Motorhome so we have to walk everywhere once we get where we're going. We spent 5 nights there then went to Pensacola for 2. We like Pensacola better. Never got a mosquito bite and the beach was a much closer walk. Sand was whiter, finer, and wasn't hot to walk on. The water was cleaner, bluer, and clearer. Plus it's over 4 hours closer to drive to. We did see dolphins at both places everyday.

Just a little pet peeve of mine about the whole Madoff thing - the money numbers they gave were all total bullshit. They included Madoff's laughable promises of return as part of the "losses", which is sort of asinine. If Madoff promised someone %15 return for 10 years on his money then they reported the amount defrauded as the initial, actual cash PLUS the money that Madoff had promised the sucker.

That's not to say that the theft wasn't gargantuan - it certainly was in the billions - but it was nothing close to the 50 billion or so reported. That was just hype.

602 I was looking at some of the history of this EC vote disputes. There were some lulus of elections after the Civil War. One was 1872.

Grant was running for re-election, and there was a lot of corruption. A #NeverGrant movement in the Repubs sprang up and split off, calling themselves the "Liberal Republicans" (as opposed to Radial Republicans) and nominated Horace Greeley. The Democrats endorsed Greeley, hoping to defeat Grant.

Now, Greeley died after the election but before the EC met. Grant won big, and was the clear winner of the electoral votes based on the popular election.

The Greeley electors split their votes, voting for either other Democrats or for the Liberal Republican VP nominee. Three Greeley electors cast their votes for the dead Greeley.

Now, Congress *rejected* these three Greeley votes as invalid, but included the votes in the total number of votes.

They also threw out the entire votes of Louisiana and Arkansas because of "irregularities", and did not include them in the total. They had voted for Grant, who had won anyway and this made no difference to the outcome.

So, there is precendent, but pre-20th Amendment precedent for Congress throwing out votes for dead candidates, but those votes were cast after the electors knew he was dead.

Yeah, Bernie Madoff blew ten times the dollar amount,



Posted by: cthulhu at August 08, 2016 01:18 AM (EzgxV)



Just a little pet peeve of mine about the whole Madoff thing - the
money numbers they gave were all total bullshit. They included Madoff's
laughable promises of return as part of the "losses", which is sort of
asinine. If Madoff promised someone %15 return for 10 years on his
money then they reported the amount defrauded as the initial, actual
cash PLUS the money that Madoff had promised the sucker.



That's not to say that the theft wasn't gargantuan - it certainly
was in the billions - but it was nothing close to the 50 billion or so
reported. That was just hype.

Posted by: ThePrimordialOrderedPair at August 08, 2016 01:22 AM (zc3Db)


The essential similarity with Corzine and Madoff is that they both took entrusted money that was supposed to be used for one purpose, co-mingled it with other funds, and used it for some entirely different purpose....while issuing periodic statements that purported to show it continued to be segregated and used for agreed purposes [sort of like the Federal Government. *rimshot*]
The idea was that the funds would make big money for the scamsters, who could then put the appropriate funds back into the customers' accounts and pocket the difference.

To invent an example -- your customers entrust you with $1B that they desire to be invested in a bunch of investments with expected returns of 6-8%. You know of something that is going to return 10%. You put all the money into that, instead of what the idiot customers wanted, with the intent that you'll take that 10% and pay them the 6-8% and they'll never know the difference.

In the meantime, you gin-up a bunch of "disclosures" that show that everything is invested the way the idiots wanted it invested. Month after month after month, you show their accounts growing as if they had been invested as instructed. Month after month after month, you trade in increasingly speculative ways, as your investment brilliance yields less than 5%....

620 Gateway Pundit has posted pictures of her handler carrying a Diazepam auto injection pen. As somebody who suffered and almost died from a grand mal seizure after surgery, I know for a fact that Diazepam is used for grand mal seizures as an injection saved my life. I've only had one and it took me over 6 months to recover and I was in my 30's

The fact that a handler has to carry around a Diazepam auto injectional pen is very disturbing. Her brain is fried. She needs to drop out. The picture is worth 1000 words and with Hillary there are many pictures of her declining health.

Oook. That grading thing was a "chosen"?


I think the biggest thing with the Ace diet is the LCHF portion. I'm doing "LCHF + IF + alcohol" and continually pissing-off my doc who doesn't think anyone who consumes the alcohol I do should have the lab results I do in a just world. He thinks I should have A1C and bad cholesterol through the roof because I spurn conventional thinking.

And I blew-off LCHF and took a bunch of Advil tonight because I'm decommissioning a 150-gallon aquarium and ache all over. I've decided it is being sold locally and not being moved, so I have better uses for its footprint.

We're now seeing a ton of shows for urbanized living or miniscule dwellings [ http://www.hgtv.com/shows/tiny-house-big-living ].

It's all foreign. Much of it is Chinese, much of it is Russian, much of it is Arab. The leaders of the most crooked regimes of our times are buying bolt-holes in the US so that they can avoid the backlash of their corruption in their own countries. I don't see this as a plus.

Posted by: cthulhu at August 08, 2016 03:19 AM (EzgxV)

655 The wealthy in china are buying houses in the US to have someplace to flee when they see signs of the collapse coming. For all of the financial insanity we have here, China has some really serious problems that many observers think could make for a very ugly period harkening back to Great Leap Forward, with massive chunks of population being culled for lack of any reason for their existence in the eyes of the ruling class. Once word gets out of what is happening, people with nothing left to lose might be able to overcome Red Army troops by sheer weight of numbers and seize weapons.

It could get very chaotic and the reverberations throughout the world would be quite loud and impossible to ignore. Just the collapse of the flow of manufactured goods be a huge disruption, driving prices through the roof for many common items, never mind high tech stuff, for a long period before other regions could ramp up production to take advantage. David Stockman noted in 'The Great Deformation' that there should have been some really serious inflation in the late 90s but we hid it behind the 'China Discount.' So there may be a boom in manufacturing, if some laws are relaxed, but prices will never go back to what we had for the last decade or so. That package of a half dozen pairs of socks at Walmart could triple or quadruple in price, readily absorbing any minimum wage increases imposed by the feds.

ruling class. Once word gets out of what is happening, people with
nothing left to lose might be able to overcome Red Army troops by sheer
weight of numbers and seize weapons.

It could get very chaotic
and the reverberations throughout the world would be quite loud and
impossible to ignore. Just the collapse of the flow of manufactured
goods be a huge disruption, driving prices through the roof for many
common items, never mind high tech stuff, for a long period before other
regions could ramp up production to take advantage. David Stockman
noted in 'The Great Deformation' that there should have been some really
serious inflation in the late 90s but we hid it behind the 'China
Discount.' So there may be a boom in manufacturing, if some laws are
relaxed, but prices will never go back to what we had for the last
decade or so. That package of a half dozen pairs of socks at Walmart
could triple or quadruple in price, readily absorbing any minimum wage
increases imposed by the feds.

(2) This is the same bunch of urban areas and coasts that has been blue for decades.

(3) And blue politicians have consistently been beating the drum against the US middle class in favor of "Emerging Markets".

of millions of unmoored, military-aged men who just moved to a country
where their new deficits will include: poor ability to make a living,
and their individual attractiveness to the local women will be much
lower than where they came from. Luckily many of them are dumber than
shit and have a religion that suggests that all their problems are my
fault. Why on earth would that make me nervous?

663 From what I've read, the Chinese outnumber the other safety seeking rich foreigners by a large margin. (Though Arabs have been buying homes in the US for so long... And consider how many Iranians were poise to flee in 1979. I had hardly even heard of Iran in 1978 but by the next school year there were several Iranian kids at school.) There is just so many more of them that phenomenon is largely seen as Chinese rather than pan-ethnic.

Likewise, a lot of those other nations could blow up in a big way without drawing much attention from much of the LIV class. Consider how easy it is to find someone who is oblivious to the plight of Venezuela. But we're so hooked into China economically that remaining ignorant when it goes sideways would be like somebody in 1936 never hearing anything about the 1929 Crash in relation to economic strife.

669 I should point out that the Rural Purge followed an attempt to tag rural and suburban citizens as hicks, uncultured, boring, unsophisticated, and comic.....but the shows with such rurals were universally popular. So they were ruthlessly cancelled, sometimes at the height of their popularity, in favor of less popular shows with a more urban perspective. Hee-haw, Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres, Andy Griffith, Red Skelton, and others got axed in favor of Mary Tyler Moore, All In the Family, Maude, and M*A*S*H.

677 Hee-Haw ran for 23 seasons, preceding and outlasting all of those sitcoms.

I doubt culture had much to do with it so much as the core cast getting old and not rotating in younger talent.

Red Skelton was on from 1951 to 1971. He was 58 and likely ready to cut back his schedule a bit.

Beverly Hillbillies ran 9 seasons. I think they'd done all they could with it. Plus Irene Ryan was feeling her age and died just two years after the last season.

The Andy Griffith Show ran 8 seasons, with Don Knotts leaving for one while seeking lead roles. The show ended because all of the leads were ready to move on, not because the network didn't want it anymore. Remember 'Mayberry R.F.D' the spin-off show they tried to keep things going without the core cast? The other earlier spin-off, 'Gomer Pyle' jsut got too weird in its persistent refusal to make any reference at all to the Vietnam war and any suggestion that Gomer and the rest might be deployed at some point. In 1964, when the show started, that could be accepted but by the fifth season it was a bit absurd.

CBS did the rural purge but mainly because it was getting stale and losing ground to ABC and NBC. All of the newer shows you mentioned were on CBS. There was room on the dial for other stuff and as I recall, Hee-Haw never ran on the Big Three networks. It was either KTLA or KTTV in LA and Ventura Counties.

Hee Haw was supposed to be a one off Summer Replacement but it stuck around for a while. It could have lasted longer. The rest had run their course and were declining in the ratings. The Andy Griffith show had declined because the stars were tired of it and wanted to move on.


As for those more youthful shows, MASH started out good and then when Alan Alda decided to be God it went to shit.

Harding did not slash the size of government. Coolidge is the only President in history to actually eliminate and reduce the government.

To me, it can't be unseen, like Michael Dukakis in that stupid looking helmet driving a tank.


Following the event, after the reporters' laughter subsided and Dukakis's entourage was preparing to leave, one of the candidate's traveling aides approached Bennett. "Nice event, Matt" he deadpanned. "It may have cost us the election. But beside that, it was great."

not his idea, tho?


This wasn't his decision. Alex Rodriguez said that the Yankees informed him a few days ago that they wanted to release him. The news surprised him. The terms of his departure will stun the baseball world.

The relationship between Rodriguez and the Yankees is not ending badly. In fact, it is continuing, Rodriguez said, first with him playing one final game at Yankee Stadium on Friday, then remaining with the team as an ambassador, instructor and special advisor to principal owner Hal Steinbrenner.

Rodriguez, in an exclusive interview with Fox Sports, said that the Yankees agreed to play him at designated hitter on Friday after the team returns from a three-game series in Boston. He then will be released, collecting the balance of his guaranteed $20 million salary this season and his entire guaranteed $20 million salary next season.

821 Got a nice big Flat Screen TV out dumster diving the other day. Haven't decided what to do with it yet.

30-30, 5.56, or .22. Maybe even 20 gauge that sucker with a couple of Deer Slugs.

824 >>"Are there any non refugee, non gay, non transexuals at this year's Olympics?"


Ginny Thrasher!

But then, the response from people like Will Wheaton is telling: he likened her to a school shooter.

Old and busted: Characters like "Star Wars" Rey, who shoots, fights, and flies the Milenium Falcon are strong young women who are important for teens to see in film" (yes, Wheaton argued this)

New hotness: "Eeek, a young gal who shoots guns really well - she must be crazy!"

That had long been suspected but the Russians repeatedly denied killing him. They have been evil toads since the communists took over. But what kills me is the worship of US liberals for these criminals.

That's not a secret service agent. He's her handler. He wears an ID badge around his neck. SS does not do that. He's private.

828 Dave.....
Attman's on Lombard Street in Baltimore, on corned beef row. Everyone I know calls it a 'kosher dog'. Never heard of it as a Baltimore Dog either. But get chopped onions on it. You'll never go back.

829 Greetings:

That "New York" hot dog contradicts my on-site experiences. Basically. like Gaul, New York hot dogs come three ways: Mustard & Saurkraut; Mustard & Onions (sauce); and Mustard an dSweet Pickle Relish.

My personal favorite tought was the Jewish deli dogs with the crunchy grilled all day skin and with mustard and potato salad.
