The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

No man's life, liberty, or property are safe while the legislature is in session. Mark Twain

Quote II

People do not expect to find chastity in a whorehouse. Why, then, do they expect to find honesty and humanity in government, a congeries of institutions whose modus operandi consists of lying, cheating, stealing, and if need be, murdering those who resist? H. L. Mencken

Quote III

We know they have nothing to do with Islam because our politicians keep telling us that, and they are all Islamic scholars. (They are, aren't they?) Yes, the violence is coming exclusively from Muslims, but only because their religion (the one that has nothing to do with Islam) tells them to kill unbelievers, meaning people who don't follow the religion with a knife to our throat that has nothing to do with Islam. Pat Condell

"They" laughed at Sarah Palin. Death panels? There's no such thing as death panels. h/t to ibguy and Political Hat

A special court hearing this afternoon was held to decide whether Alfie should be allowed to be flown to Italy, who granted him citizenship yesterday, for additional care.

The judge in the case again rejected the appeal to transfer the child to Rome, but left the door open for moving him from Alder Hey Children's Hospital.

Delivering his decision, Mr Justice Hayden described 23-month-old Alfie as "courageous" and a "warrior".
He said: "This represents the final chapter in the case of this extraordinary little boy."

Mr Justice Hayden urged doctors at Alder Hey to “explore creatively, ambitiously, even though it may be a forlorn hope, the options, may it be palliative care".

They might deliver mail through rain and snow. They also don't check "change of address requests" either apparently. United Parcel Service (UPS) corporate mail forwarded to a one bedroom apartment.

CHICAGO (CBS) — UPS headquarters might be in Atlanta, but for almost three months, hundreds if not thousands of pieces of its corporate mail were delivered to a small unassuming garden apartment in the Rogers Park neighborhood in Chicago.

That corporate mail included tens of thousands of dollars in business checks. According to court documents, it began with a simple unauthorized change of address form filled out by a Chicago man. Now, it’s the focus of a federal investigation.

Apartment 2 at 6750 N. Ashland Av. became the address for UPS corporate headquarters in October, after the man who lives inside filled out a change of address form at a post office, according to a federal affidavit. UPS corporate mail then was redirected and delivered to the apartment.

There is some good news and some bad news. The bad news? The Second Amendment is still under attack. The good news? The NRA broke a 15 year fund-raising record.


The National Rifle Association's Political Victory Fund raised $2.4 million from March 1 to March 31, the group's first full month of political fundraising since the nation's deadliest high school shooting on Valentine's Day, according to filings submitted to the Federal Elections Commission. The total is $1.5 million more than the organization raised during the same time period in 2017, when it took in $884,000 in donations, and $1.6 million more than it raised in February 2018.

There are Surgeon General warnings for Valu-Rite and cigs if you're a pregnant woman. Looks like it might be time to put out warnings for The Pot as well.

Prenatal cannabis use associated with low birth weights. The study, led by Colorado School of Public Health, shows a 50 percent increase in low birth weights among women who use cannabis during pregnancy.

1 in 4 millennials rely on their parents for financial help.

In its latest Global Wealth Report, Credit Suisse said the millennial generation has faced "a run of bad luck", much of which was centered around the financial crisis.

"The “Millennials” – people who came of age after the turn of the century – have had a run of bad luck, most clearly in developed markets. Capital losses in the global financial crisis of 2008-2009 and high subsequent unemployment have dealt serious blows to young workers and savers. Add rising student debt in several developed countries, tighter mortgage rules after 2008, higher house prices, increased income inequality, less access to pensions and lower income mobility and you have a “perfect storm” holding back wealth accumulation by the Millennials in many countries."

Falling into the "You can't make this shit up category". Minority college golf team on verge of championship with whites.

Nonetheless, real Americans continue to ignore racial and ethnic barriers, no matter what the politically correct classes instruct them. The results can be almost comic, on occasion, such as this from The Sentinel:

On May 11, the male golf team of Lincoln University, an historically black college in Jefferson City, will compete in this year's PGA Minority Collegiate Golf Championship. The tournament begins May 11 in Port Lucie, Florida.

The goal of the tournament founders was "to provide a national stage for players from minority colleges and universities to compete in NCAA collegiate golf events." That said, not all of the golfers at Lincoln are black. Truth be told, none of them are.

Sears, once upon a time a retail giant. Has a major stockholder calling for its breakup.

Sears Holdings Corp. is considering a proposal from its largest shareholder to buy some of the troubled retailer's most lucrative businesses, which the investor says are worth more than stock markets believe.

The value of the Kenmore appliance brand, Sears Home Improvement business, and its Parts Direct division aren't reflected in the company's stock price, ESL Investments head Eddie Lampert, who's also the retailer's CEO, said in a letter to the company's board. ESL holds 19 percent of the Hoffman Estates, Ill.-based company's stock.

Are we on a course for a civil war? 7 forces driving America towards civil war.

I was interviewed by a mainstream media reporter yesterday. I thought he wanted to talk tech issues, but we actually spent almost the entire conversation discussing the feeling that many conservatives have that America has gone off the tracks and is headed toward dissolution or alternately, a civil war one day. Obviously, this would be a terrible thing and ironically, twenty years ago, it would have been laughable. Today, the joke isn’t so funny because we are a deeply unhealthy society with a dysfunctional government and for all our money, success and storied history, we seem to be on an increasingly dangerous trajectory.

So is walking enough exercise for you?

We humans need to exercise in order to stay healthy. Exercise protects against disease and early death, and keeps us mobile and able to perform daily tasks.

Walking is an easy, free and enjoyable form of exercise. But is a nice stroll enough to confer the life-saving benefits we know come from exercise?

We posed this question to five specialists in the field.

A funny thing happened on the way to being green. Canada's oilsands have a mineral used in battery manufacturing.

Vanadium is a largely obscure metal often used in making steel. It retains its hardness at high temperatures, so it’s ideal for making drill bits, engine turbines and other parts that generate heat.

In the oilsands, Vanadium is one of the metals that comes out of the ground with bitumen. The concentration is quite low: a barrel of bitumen would contain just 30 milliliters of vanadium, on average, experts says. But multiplied by the millions of barrels of production from the oilsands every day would be about 33,000 liters of vanadium. Vanadium has a density of 3.36 grams per cc. So a million barrels of oil would be about 100,000 kilograms (100 tons). One year of production would be about 36500 tonnes.

A wounded warrior undergoes intensive surgery. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

BALTIMORE — In a 14-hour operation, a young military veteran whose genitals were blown off by a bomb received an extraordinary transplant: a penis, scrotum and portion of the abdominal wall, taken from a deceased organ donor.

The surgery, performed last month at Johns Hopkins Hospital, was the most complex and extensive penis transplant to date, and the first performed on a combat veteran maimed by a blast.

Ok, so Yeti makes coolers. They also make thermal cups. Their market is almost exclusively sportsmen, tailgaters and campers.

They had a relationship where they sold branded merchandise to and for the NRA. Which made sense because that was the market for their product.

They decided to end their relationship with the NRA. No explanation given at the time, but it came at the same time as other companies were giving in to the Hoggsteria (divesting any connection to the NRA and gun related businesses.)

Wackiness ensued. Backtracking. Hand-wringing. Casting aspersions.

23 Most of those "idiot"product designs are PEBKAC issues. The complaint about the length of a cable for a dvd drive, for example. That cable is just long enough to work with a desktop computer. If someone wants a smaller one because they need the drive a specific short distance from their laptop, they can buy one. But the cable that comes with a device needs to work with everyone's shit, not just yours.

Most of the complaints were similarly self-centered.

Reacts badly on a chemical basis with Titanium. The reaction causes a brittleness where the Titanium has been scraped with the Vanadium, leading to stress-fractures.

Which is why there were precisely *zero* Chrome-Vanadium tools on an SR-71 or A-12 flight line.

Something also to keep in mind if any of you own a Taurus "Total Titanium" revolver, or other firearm with Titanium in it's makeup. A close inspection of your gunsmithing tools might just be in order, there.

57 I am so damned mind-burningly SICK of hearing "Islam needs reform," or "Islam needs a Martin Luther."

The Protestant Reformation was asking the question "What does the Bible actually tell us?" and then following that; getting away from nonsense such as indulgences.

In Luther's time, no one had a Bible. In Luther's town, there was one, written in Latin, and kept in a library, chained to a desk... and covered in dust.

Conversely, EVERYONE in the Middle East has a Koran, and it's written in their own language. There is no question of what it tells them to do.

So what the HELL do people mean by "Islam needs reform"? Do they think they're going to remove things from the Koran, and then everyone will just forget that the original version existed?

Disassemble. Soak in ethanol-free fuel for a day or two. Blow out.

109 U.S. District Judge John D. Bates called the government's decision to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals "virtually unexplained" and therefore "unlawful."

The unlawfulness is yours. I'll explain it to you, Hawaii Judge.

DACA is a One-Man Law, Passed by a One-Man House and a One-Man Senate and signed by One President. Therefore, it may be repealed by One President. Additionally, it defies the actual laws passed by the 535-man Congress. Furthermore Hawaii judges are not One-Man legislatures or Presidents either.

This ruling even defies the laws of grammar. DACA stands for Deferred (Law Enforcement) Action on Childhood Arrivals, not Permanent Amnesty for Childhood Arrivals.

If it won't crank ... you can TRY taking the breather off and hitting the carb straight with cleaner. Sometimes ... that's enough to get it started, and if you'll continue to squirt cleaner when it starts to die - you may burn the shit out of the carb. I've done that before.

Working just fine. I can see this PC screen here with it, about 16" from my face, using no optic at all. My left eye, with the contact lens in it, still needs a reading glass. And my distance vision is good, too. I go back and forth over which eye is sharper at distance.
No pain or discomfort, save for one day, when it felt as though there was a foreign object in there.
I am quite happy, so far.

And I got the transmission fixed in my suburban. Apparently it was the input shaft speed sensor, which I replaced with one from a spare transmission, and it has run fine since. But maybe it was just a glitchy cable connection under there. Who knows for sure? But it's done circa 200 miles with no relapses.

Martin Luther took on the corrupt leaders of the Catholic Church, and called for a return to a more original version of Christianity.

Islam had that recently in a man named Sayyid Qutb. Like Luther, he decried the corruption in Islamic governance and called for a more pure version of Islam.

The problem is that Christianity is inherently peaceful. Islam is inherently violent. From a materialistic view you have the religion of a carpenter versus that of a warlord.

Islam doesn't need a reformer...it needs a reconquista.

This is a perfect application for the "Rods From God" kinetic weapon technology.

Telephone pole sized Tungsten column, with aerodynamic contour, fins and guidance system, dropped back into earth's atmosphere from a low earth orbit.

It'll impact at about Mach 10, and with the force of a small nuke, but with zero radioactive fallout.

I'm thinking one of those on the black rock at Mecca, renamed "Message From God". Said message being that ol' Allah ain't got the juice to have kept this from happening.

Apply to other Muzzie sites, as needed.

We don't need 'em to have a reformation. We would benefit greatly though, for them to experience a transcendent discouragement as to the viability of their devotions.

185 107 The judge in the case again rejected the appeal to transfer the child to Rome, but left the door open for moving him from Alder Hey Children's Hospital.
***
The amazing thing here is that only a trivial amount of government money would be used to transfer the child to Italy for care there...and yet the government still would rather kill the child.

We used to contrast the West with Islam in that we love life and they love death...but for broad segments of teh west that is no longer true.

Posted by: 18-1 at April 24, 2018 10:01 PM (Z8FFX)

I think it's more about not wanting to be shown up. If that child gets saved in Italy, then logically, he could have been saved in England. Which means they were wrong to deny treatment in the first place.

If he dies where he is, they can still claim that his death was inevitable anyway.

When I go to the front page of the site with either Chrome or Pale Moon, the formatting of the site is wonky. The font is larger Times New Roman, and all the links are old-school blue text with underline.

There is no self-improvement in islam, no exhortation to help others, no mercy and no forgiveness.

islam is the exact polar opposite of Christianity, IMO. Where Christ urges his followers to become better, Mo teaches his followers to kill, maim and disfigure.

A slight but not unimportant difference.

Posted by: Circa (Insert Year Here) at April 24, 2018 10:10 PM (B3NHb)

It is really much more ridiculous than that. Islam says that God us essentially unknowable. It says that Allah (who really isn't God, but anyway) is not bound by any rules, self-imposed or otherwise, and does whatever he wants. Allah told Mo what to do and when to do it, and now muzzies are supposed to do just as Mo did, or else they are not doing what Allah told them to do, but none of that means dick because whether you go to heaven or hell is completely out of your hands.

There is no reason to investigate nature if you are a muzzie because Allah can just change it if he feels like it. There is no reason for scientific inquiry at all. The entire universe is and will remain a complete mystery, beyond our grasp.

Islam is a radical heresy of Christianity, where personal responsibility is absent, including any cooperating with the Holy Ghost or any other means of sanctity. This is what happens when you worship Satan, the Father of Lies. Any god who tells you to kill innocent people is no god at all.

Loved Melania's hat. It was sophisticated, not too big, didn't have any stupid flowers or doodads on it and matched her suit perfectly. She was absolutely flawless for the reception this morning for the Macrons.
And to be fair, Madame Macron stepped up her game and looked very good. Skirts were appropriate length(remember the mini skirts she wore to world meetings last year?) and her outfits have been classic and clean lined.

Melania's gown for this evening was spectacular. Most of what she has worn over the last two days is a nod to French designers, such Givenchy.

Additionally, I would like to scold Pres. Trump and Pres. Macron for tromping all over the grass at Mt. Vernon yesterday , oblivious to their first ladies mega heels . If you men ever had to walk in stilettos across a lawn, you would understand. Not only is it a complete balancing act as your heel spikes into the ground, it trashes the heel. Both ladies handled it without any mishap, but I'm sure they both were wondering what kind of press photo ops they might be giving any moment.

A Falcon heavy could probably loft 20 good-sized nukes into low-Earth orbit, giving you about a thousand times as much destruction for the same dollars spent. Make sure the one you drop on mecca is an enhanced-radiation warhead.

308 Loved Melania's hat. It was sophisticated, not too big, didn't have any stupid flowers or doodads on it and matched her suit perfectly. She was absolutely flawless for the reception this morning for the Macrons.
And to be fair, Madame Macron stepped up her game and looked very good. Skirts were appropriate length(remember the mini skirts she wore to world meetings last year?) and her outfits have been classic and clean lined.

Melania's gown for this evening was spectacular. Most of what she has worn over the last two days is a nod to French designers, such Givenchy.

Additionally, I would like to scold Pres. Trump and Pres. Macron for tromping all over the grass at Mt. Vernon yesterday , oblivious to their first ladies mega heels . If you men ever had to walk in stilettos across a lawn, you would understand. Not only is it a complete balancing act as your heel spikes into the ground, it trashes the heel. Both ladies handled it without any mishap, but I'm sure they both were wondering what kind of press photo ops they might be giving any moment.

312 I went looking for the hat pic of Melania, but could not find one. Her gown was stunning though.

Wth was Ivanka wearing. I usually like how she dresses but this was a total miss, especially for the occasion. Polka dots with ruffled skirt. It looked like a prom dress. And what was with that weird spray of greenery pinned at her waist. Just no. That was 14 thousand dollars?! What the heck was she thinking?! Well, at least something made me laugh.

Oh, and the other funny dress was black/white and it had a lobster on it heading right toward the promised land, or beaver territory, if ya know what I mean, and I think you do. That one is a hoot. lol Don't know whom the woman was though.

happened to hear one of the food channel chefs opining about tater tots one time. he was commending some guy on doing a bang up job on the handmade tots. he concluded by saying that tater tots are one of the things that food manufacturers really do a better job on than chefs because of the way they prepare the potatoes with freeze drying and other stuff.

361 After pondering on it for a couple of hours, I thought of a rather simple way to handle the "national divorce" we're talking about, but I also can think of a couple reasons why that wouldn't work (and why any other breakup plan wouldn't work, either)

The method - simply announce that the Constitution is dissolved, the Federal Government is dissolved, and all sovereignty is devolved back to the 50 states. Any new associations between states can be negotiated and entered into by the States themselves.

The biggest problem - all social security, medicare, etc is instantly dissolved, anyone who depended on those to live is SOL. Also, the national debt would all simply be defaulted on, probably resulting not just in a national depression but a worldwide depression, as well. But that happens in any breakup, no matter what the terms are.

The method - simply announce that the Constitution is dissolved, the Federal Government is dissolved, and all sovereignty is devolved back to the 50 states. Any new associations between states can be negotiated and entered into by the States themselves.

The biggest problem - all social security, medicare, etc is instantly dissolved, anyone who depended on those to live is SOL. Also, the national debt would all simply be defaulted on, probably resulting not just in a national depression but a worldwide depression, as well. But that happens in any breakup, no matter what the terms are.

Nah, Y5 is just like my paternal great-Uncle Walter. He likes to argue, and be contrarian. Anybody would take a position, Uncle Walter had to take the opposite.

He liked to argue with his mules. They would win. I think mules like to argue too. We ought to get Y5 one, and they'd have a big time.

385 Good lord, can we please have a moratorium on 1) anything about pot, and 2) any kind of "statistical study" ?

Imagine those two things overlapping.

So, prenatal pot use. A study of 3207 women, 5.7% of whom used pot during pregnancy. OR, better stated, 182 of 3207 women.

A 50% increase in low birth weight, you say ? Well, HOW low, exactly ? Doesn't say. Well, how many women normally have a low birth weight baby vs. those using pot ? ALSO doesn't say.

You know why ? Because those numbers are guaranteed to be TINY. If they weren't, they'd absolutely be in their little "pot is bad, mmkay?" study.

If you can use your brains to understand why global warming, AKA "climate change" is fake, you should be able to wrap your brains around why every goddam "statistical study" telling you what is good and bad for you, especially given their HORRIFIC history in telling you what is or isn't bad for you - is dog shit.

So tempting to open up my little condo for one of them, and give her an opportunity to move out of Mom's basement.

I'm skeptical, though. Such women would be shaped by public schooling and feminism, and likely to be Democrat-by-default, and, ugh.

Odds are, she'd move in, and after awhile, say, "Yeah, I'm kinda bored with you, now. I'm leaving you, and taking your condo with me, because the courts will give it to me, and, oh, wait! That means you're the one who's leaving. Have fun sleeping in the street and continuing to pay my mortgage while I sleep in the nice warm bed that used to be yours!"

444 In the Kashuv thread Christopher Taylor posted the following:


I see a lot of people saying "sue" and claiming constitutional rights
were violated, but I don't see any basis for that. Cops leaning on
someone isn't a violation of rights, being called in as a kid to the
principals office to explain something you did isn't a violation of any
rights.



The problem here isn't what they did but rather why they did it.
The motivation is the issue. I'm all for a kid being hauled up to
talk to the man if he's posting crazy stuff on the internet. Maybe if
they'd done that with Cruz, he might have been stopped.



What they did, though, was to shut up a kid who is making them look
bad and who won't conform. Their reasoning is wrong, their motivation
is suspect, not their actions.


The problem is what they did. It was an absolutely text book violation of 18 U.S. Code 241.

Here is the law:

"If two or more persons conspire to injure, oppress, threaten, or
intimidate any person in any State, Territory,
Commonwealth, Possession, or District in the free exercise or enjoyment
of any right or privilege secured to him by the Constitution or laws of
the United States, or because of his having so exercised the
same
; or



If two or more persons go in disguise on the highway, or on the premises
of another, with intent to prevent or hinder his free exercise or
enjoyment of any right or privilege so secured



They shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten
years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in
violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an
attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse or an attempt to commit
aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, they shall be fined
under this title or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or
both, or may be sentenced to death."


You may not conspire to intimidate anyone because of his having exercised his constitutional rights. Major federal felony. The fact that they were cops is irrelevant. Likely the principle of the school is also part of that conspiracy. Kyle wrote he was "scared" and they were "trying to intimidate him". There is a difference between a legal interrogation and a conspiracy against rights, and this crossed that line.

Their detention of Mr. Kashuv as part of their illegal conspiracy can be construed as a kidnapping, and opens them all up to possible federal death penalties.

Nukes go to Louisiana, Montana, North Dakota, Wyoming, Georgia, Missouri, ..., and Washington State. .... hmmm Of course, Washington State won't want the boomers, so we should be able to buy them back cheap.

Posted by: An Observation at April 24, 2018 11:36 PM (ltGLk)

The two are not mutually exclusive. From the DOJ:


Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.

For the purpose of Section 242, acts under "color of law" include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official's lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers...

608 I figured out the hat, bcz that wide brim was like a flying saucer. It was to keep Donald from getting too close. It would be hard to get up, over, or below that hat with his height. Heh. Good for her. Smart lass. Well played Melania. Well played.

Having a baseball cap where the brim is completely flat, unbroken. It annoys the hell out of me.

613 FLOTUS in her dinner get-up, pretty amazing.


Sure it's marginal stuff in itself, just fluff one way or the other, but the treatment of Melania by the society/fashion/glamor/whatever press and figures, vs. that of Michelle, actually is a pretty disgusting confirmation of the degradation of the civic culture.


Easily the most beautiful and glamorous FLOTUS evah - disdain, nasty vicious innuendo about marriage, mockery.


An unpleasant, so-so figure with generally horrible fashion sense - bizarre un-American idolatry and worship, like she was the American Mdme Ceaucescu.

622 So nice to see the WH return to old-fashioned, candlelit state dinners in the State Dining Room (holds 140) after the Obamas' tacky, colored-floodlight spectacles in the East Room (holds over 300.)

The cost of state dinners, paid for by the State Dept., ran about $250,000 to 300,000 (in constant 2000 dollars) from the time of Reagan through Bush43.

Then came Barky, whose average expenditure was over a million. That average doesn't include the $3,000,000 extravaganza he threw for Mexico, where the guests were served in floored and heated tents on the South Lawn, having been conveyed there on a little train.
And let us not discuss the cost of staging a big show by Beyonce, who as we know epitomizes class.

Oh, I see that the Trumps had a program by the National Opera featuring works by French and US composers.

Now I want the Nevertrumper Countryclubbers to STFU.

Trump in a wife beater with the words "My other suit is Armani." Maybe some jean shorts. Bear hat.

Oh, come on. It's been painful for me to come around on Trump, but come around I have.

Still, there are so many flaws in this point of view. Trump wears his ties down to his gonads. That's wrong. The tie comes to just below the belt buckle (except you shouldn't wear a belt, you should wear braces).

And even Ronaldus Maximus was wrong. He wore brown and orange suits. Suits are blue or grey unless it's summer and they're linen in which case they may be white or beige.

704 Wife and I went to the Senior Day final home game of some girls, that my wife had as grade school students, college softball game yesterday. Beautiful sunny afternoon to start the 3 PM game, the first game. A little breezy, but it was at our backs so no big deal. They won the first game of the doubleheader, and wifey says "do you want to leave or stay for the second?" Being the good husband that I am I say "Let's stay" knowing it was now 5 PM and the teeth of the rush hour so why even bother leaving for another hour or so. So we stay. It's starts to get a little chillier and the sun is getting lower and the team is losing 3 to 0. Should be over soon, and we can go grab dinner on the way home. They tie the game up in the bottom of the 5th. The opposition goes up a run in the 6th, and the home team ties, in the bottom of the 7th....Crap, extra innings. Finally after 11 innings the good guys win, and we can go home. It is now almost 8 PM. I haven't eaten dinner. I've been up since 4 AM. I'm retired dammit and I usually eat dinner at 5 PM like my stomach demands. We are both pretty cold by this point and tired and drive home to have a small sammich before a shower and bed.
A great win for the girls though.

Hopefully some brownie points for me

They'll drag out some never-Trumper in front of the camera who will proclaim that the closeness of the race portends a certain blue tidal wave in November.

The problem with the GOP is they for the most part are

Which would be underscored by winning by 5pct in a districts Trump won by 20.
