And Some Beer, While We Can Get It..


Trump Is Killing the Beer Industry


Oh no! Lets see some quotes from the article:

The drop in beer profits may not be only the administration’s fault. All booze sales, including wine, beer, and spirits, dropped by .08 percent in 2018 for the third year in a row. Many drinkers are apparently shifting towards consuming wine and liquor over beer, so the industry was harder hit by the decline in alcohol consumption overall.


Some areas of the industry are still growing, with brewing jobs up 8 percent. The report attributes that to the “tremendous growth in micro and brewpub employment as well as growth in higher margin products from all brewers.”


But the headline... Muh clicks!

MS-13 Teens Came to U.S. as Family Unit and Unaccompanied, Murdered 14-Year-Old Girl After Being Released in a Sanctuary County

P.G. County. It's bluer than California. PG and Montgomery Counties and Baltimore City are the three counties that keep Maryland blue. Without any one of this we'd be a red state. One of the reasons I'm in favor of DC statehood – as long as they take PG and Montgomery with them (along with NOVA). Never happen, of course, too much tax base from Fed jobs there.

Agreed. Never have understood the fascination with BS. Or with Bruce Springsteen, either. He can't play guitar and his songs always do sound better when somebody else covers them. And he's the world's worst stage hog. If you haven't seen it, he pretty much ruins Roy Orbison't Black and White Night video.

Bob Seger, no question. Live Bullet is one of the classic albums of the 70s.


Repeat story: I student-roadied for Bob Seger while I was a Jax state. Got second row tickets plus some money, don't recall how much.
The opening act was a band called McKendree Spring who had a Mellotron. It took about six of us to hoist that heavy fooker up 4 ft to the stage. Did I mention how heavy those things are?

Anyway, it was a great show. Ramblin' Gamblin' Man was his only hit at the time and that was the encore song.

She would work that miserable prick's name in a sentence every time she opened her mouth.I think she is directly responsible for me not really listening to radio since then and favoring "recorded" media (tape, cd, etc).

Well, you're a child. Springsteen was over by the 80s. If you were in the Jersey-Phila area in the 70s you got the good Springsteen.

120 The Forbidden Places On The Earth You Are Not Allowed To Visit

Lots of rumors about Metro-2 in Moscow.

Wikipedia:

The length of Metro-2 is rumored to exceed that of the public Metro. It is said to have four lines, and to lay 50-200 meters (165-660 ft) deep. It is said to connect the Kremlin with the Federal Security Service (FSB) headquarters, the government airport at Vnukovo-2, and an underground town at Ramenki, in addition to other locations of national importance.

It supposedly incorporates a Metro station under the Kremlin, which has never been opened to the public. (Stalin gave a speech there when the Germans were close to Moscow.)

Besides having bunkers in the system, a key function of the system allegedly is to allow the leadership to evacuate the Kremlin, go to an airport, and fly out of Moscow, without public notice.

202 I recall a great bad English Chinese sign in a business many years ago [restaurant in Malaysia]: "Chinese Eaten Here"

During the Korean War, my father was serving in Japan. There was a local restaurant that was popular with the American military personnel.

The water supply in that part of Japan was sometimes contaminated, so in an effort to reassure their American customers that the restaurant's water supply had been checked, the restaurant had a sign:

"All water in restaurant personally passed by chef."

220 Funny someone brought up Bob Seger as I was giving the Night Moves album a spin for the first time in over 30 years. Terrific album. Mainstreet is one of the best song about longing for a girl ever.....

Springsteen gets a lot of flack-deservedly so for his politic-but Darkness on the Edge of Town is a fantastic album and his first two--both from 1973--are interesting and promising.

But I think he started to suck as soon as they hung the mantle"Voice of the Working Man" upon him...but he accepted it, so it's his fault.

Also, Seger sings rings around Springsteen.

258 Since today is Bob Dylan's 78th birthday, I'll repeat a comment I made last night.

I was crunching some numbers, and determined that he played 489 live shows from the start of his career to age 40.

From age 40-50, he played 481 shows, bringing the total to 970.

From age 50-60, he played 1015 shows, more than doubling his career output prior to age 50. He averaged 100 shows a year from 1991-2001.

266 240 I've watched beer prices climb to 9.99 for a six pack over the years. A 12 pack of Sam Adams will set you back 13-15 bucks. You can still get CoorsMillerBud for less, but even they followed the uptrend in price over the years. Oh yeah, California adds 60 cents to the price of a 12 pack, then slap on a sales tax of anywhere from 7-8%. Sure, carb-conscious folks are turning away from beer, but price is compelling me to enjoy a good beer only with dinner, mostly.

They're used to paying someone else to do what mommy and/or daddy used to do for them, including driving themselves from point A to point B. They don't know how to drive no less how to fix a car. They can't cook for themselves, do basic household chores and maintenance, and I doesn't seem that they can manage basic household budgeting.

They most certainly can.
"Owing allegiance to the US" means they swore an oath to uphold the Constitution.

"Adheres to their enemies" doesn't specify whether those enemies are foreign or domestic. And only enemies would attempt a coup here.

"Giving them aid or comfort" means complying with said domestic enemies wishes to oust a duly elected President despite him having done nothing legally wrong or anything else worthy of real impeachment.

So fuck yeah they can be tried, convicted and hung for treason. Don't let anybody tell you any differently.

348 Here in SoCal, it seems like almost every fast food place is now promoting their new items with this "plant-based" concoction called Beyond Meat. Del Taco has Beyond Meat. Carls Jr has Beyond Meat.

Here's the thing. I *don't wanna go* Beyond Meat. I'm perfectly happy with meat. Like Al Green sang in Let's Stay Together, I'm gonna Stay Together with meat. They're gonna bury me with meat.
Posted by: qdpsteve at May 24, 2019 11:04 PM (miE9U)

If vegans hate the very thought of meat, why the Hell do they make all this fake meat from soy and whatever? The only thing that would induce me, as a meat eater, to eat a soy burger, would be a drastic shortage of real meat that priced it out beyond my means.

Seems to me it's all just virtue-signaling.

366 I can understand now why Millennials complain about never having enough money to cover the student loan payments;

You do have to admire the creativity of the Left - Federally-guaranteed student loans funneled billions of dollars of new money into educational institutions utterly controlled by the Left, and created a helot class of people who are $100,000 in debt for useless gender studies degrees, who have a perpetual sense of grievance, that can be mobilized into political activism on any subject the Left finds desirable.

Frankly, I don't see why they aren't rioting in front of their alma maters - after all, it is the colleges and universities that pocketed their money and ripped them off. Yet, somehow, it's middle-class taxpayers' fault for not bailing them out.

377 I think the Founders deliberately defined treason narrowly in the Constitution because the King had been abusing it.

It sounds like it can only be imposed during an actual war. The last time Congress formally declared war was in 1941.

I know that in Iraq and Afghanistan, the neocons told us that an "Authorization for the Use of Military Force" was practically the same as a "Declaration of War", and we shouldn't trouble ourselves about it.

Really? Then why the different wording?

428 So, what happens when it comes out in the next week or two that the FBI has been spying on every politically prominent Jewish American to the right of J-Street, thanks to Samantha Power's tireless "unmasking" efforts.

After all, they were talking to people in Israel, so obviously all their communications were fair game for surveillance.

All that said. He's messed in the head. Remember that time a few weeks back where he lost control of what was going on in the judiciary committee? Everyone in the room was all wtf nadler are u even paying attention? He was prolly having strokes right then. Just small ones. The guy is shot through, his days are numbered. As all of ours are.

One small hole in it, but the entire piece is shattered, as is the rule with tempered glass. Can't find any object inside the car to account for it. I don't think it was a bullet; that sort of mischief is basically unknown around here. Probably I ran over a rock or one of the dog's bones with the lawn mower, and it slung a fragment.

528 Large stones weighing 50, 100 or 400 tons can be moved with primitive technology. More impressive in some ways than simply moving them, is the material itself. Egypt in particular, has rose granite statues, andesite and diorite boxes, carved out of single block with internal 90 degree cuts accurate to an extreme precision and then highly polished. It's insane.

However it was done, it wasn't with copper chisels. They also had core drills, an archaeologist, Petrie, examined granite cores that show spiral cuts, very clean and a feed rate of a tenth of an inch per revolution. It doesn't have to be aliens, but I don't believe there is an adequate explanation for this.

The large stone walls all over in Peru are another REALLY strange deal. Up to 12 sided stones that interlock perfectly. I'd love to get an old school bricklayers opinion on those.

Heh. I sort of doubt it would be possible to jump a drawbridge like that, at any speed. The abrupt transition from the approach to the raised span would bottom out the front suspension so hard, it would scrub off the speed you needed to make the jump. And likely break things.

If you watch the professional daredevil shows, you will note the ramps have a smooth transition in gradient.

616 I saw Bruce Springsteen on the Born To Run tour at Ann Arbor's Hill Auditorium, a concert hall, and he was a great performer and a pretty good songwriter at the time. I saw him again in Ann Arbor in 1980, when he asked Bob Seger to come up on stage for an encore, doing Thunder Road for the second time that night because that's what Seger wanted to sing. There is an audience recording below.

True story. My little sister was in nursing school at the time and she was supposed to babysit for our 1 year old that night. She stood us up so we took the baby. My sister ended up becoming a huge Springsteen fan and has met him a couple of times, says he's been gracious. I've met Seger while covering the Detroit Auto Show (he gets VIP access to the media preview), he's also gracious to fans.

I don't like Springsteen's politics, but Seger isn't exactly a right winger. I'm from Detroit so of course I think that Seger deserves more credit than he gets, but then there are folks in Asbury Park that think that Southside Johnny is better than Springsteen.

Its all about the "Night Fishing"...

Turning to Plaintiffs' aesthetic and recreational interests, Plaintiffs provide declarations
from several members, detailing how Defendants' proposed use of funds reprogrammed under Section 8005 and then used under Section 284 for border barrier construction will harm their ability to recreate in and otherwise enjoy public land along the border. See Dkt. No. 30 (Del ValDecl.) 7-9 (alleging harm from border barrier construction and the accompanying lighting in the Yuma Sector Project 1 to declarant's "ability to fish" and general enjoyment of natural environment);


You didn't realize? People need to be able to go "night fishing" within major drug corridors at the border without flood lights scaring off the fish.

684 Cassettes were actually overall a pretty good quality recording format. It's just too bad the record labels always treated them like the redheaded stepchild to LPs, and then CDs. It also took too long for them to offer decently recorded cassette versions of albums.
Posted by: qdpsteve at May 25, 2019 01:11 AM (miE9U)

The Achilles Heel of any pre-recorded tape format for selling music (or video) is that manufacturing them is tedious. They have high-speed duplicators, but they have to make a batch, however many they have stations on the duplicator, and then make another batch. CD's and records can be made by stamping, and very quickly indeed.

692 Only buy Cassettes that show NO wear from car type decks.
You don't want to see any casing rubbing or tracking.
Then, check the felt pad to make sure it is still securely fashioned to the 'spring'.
Worst case scenario, you can loop out the tape and re-glue with gel style superglue.
Use a toothpick to get the tape out of the way and a different toothpick to apply the glue.

701 I used to record my own cassettes, as many of us did.

Bench matched pair of Akai studio grade cassette decks. Unit 2 rolled exactly 99.5% of the speed of Unit !, to prevent resonance feedback in a deck-to-deck recording.

Otherwise, Unit 1 was fed via either the JVC CD player, calibrated by local audiophile service center, or the JVC QY-75 turntable with top end Micro Acoustic direct electret cartridge.

From either the turntable or CD player, I could produce tapes that no factory cassette would ever dare to challenge.

And those tapes, played in the GL-1500 Gold Wing Aspencade's tape deck, would ROCK that bike down the highway at any speed.

Best 'Wing reaction w/ stereo blasting.

Greenwich Village, NYC. Pulled up to a pizza joint, with The Rippingtons cranked up for some rockin' jazz.

The bike drew spectators to the curb where I'd parked.

There was no Pizza in peace...I was kept busy answering all the questions, including "did you really ride that all the way from Texas?"

Why yes, I did.

And was in Connecticut the very next day, for business.

734 I'm going to end my evening with a gripe. Need a set of front wheel bearings for the '78 Triumph Spitfire that I am working on for a friend. Seemingly unavailable locally (have not yet tried the big bearing houses in Calgary, because weekend).

Tried RockAuto. They had them all, and the seals, too. Would have run me about a hundred bucks CDN, not too bad, all things considered. But postage, on packages from three sites, would run me another $40, with delivery time (mail) "indeterminate".

Canceled the order in the shopping cart. Forty bucks shipping for stuff, that in the aggregate, weighs under a pound, is just too damn high. If RockAuto wants to penetrate the Canadian market in any way, they are going to have open a fulfillment center in Canada, and then ship "internally" from their sources to that point, and then ship onward from there in one package. Just the reality of cross-border shipping.

For now, I will just clean and repack the old wheel bearings, which are not damaged, just old.

Every variant of the B-24, had longer range, higher speed, and a greater payload than the B-17.

What the '24 didn't have?

Toughness. Hits that a '17 could survive would light the '24 up like a Ronson Lighter.

Flack could break a Liberator apart like a Jenga tower, in today's parlance.

Just above the wing-box, extending aft to just short of the waist-gunner's stations, was an internal fuel tank in the upper fuselage.

Mr. Folke-Wolfe finds that with his 20 mm cannon, and the waist gunners, radioman and navigator were the first to go.

There's a PBY 4 (USN Liberator, single tail) under restoration at the Lone Star Flight Museum up at Ellington Field.

I've been doing some serious oil changing in all my tractors, and it's been several years since I was up on all the latest API specs, and I noticed something.

Shell's Rotella-T, along with similar products used to be a "fleet oil", both C and S rated. But no more, most of their and other diesel oils are just C rated, CK-4 being the latest. There is some new "FN-4" spec, I see as well, but that is really different, EPA pollution control shit.

Anyway, I was wondering what the deal was, and why they are no longer S rating their diesel oils. It may have something to do with the phosphorous content and modern catalytic converters.

Do you know anything about this?

Using them aggressively, for entrapment ["OCONUS lures"], and other ways we already know occurred during the Keystone Coup, on *a presidential campaign, and a transition team* has no known precedent and is a mega-scandal of historic dimensions.


None of which matters, necessarily, in terms of political outcomes - as I said above. There is no press, as the concept has existed most of our history.


This is now a "country" where storybook immigrant policemen are murdered by dirtbag multiple-deportees protected by state/local guvamints *on Christmas Day* - and the uproar is ...... 2 on a scale of 1O, over in a week, and already forgotten. Just one of thousands of examples - there were probably a few outrages just today [of which you might hear of one or two, maybe ..... no press].


Trump looks extremely good for re-election, to the extent one can say such things sooooo far in advance. That's actually a different topic. Just speculating that the jaw-dropping, historic crimes that may be exposed might have a tiny fraction of the impact some expect - and which in an America that is gone, surely would have.

Brennen was CIA Director when nearly all the CIA assets in China were 'outed' and jailed/shot/etc. Highly unlikely that was a coincidence. Brennen needs to be strangled to death with his own entrails.

The sump pump has been nearly constant with all the rain. Then there's the clock in the hall. It no longer chimes, (it's old, was my great grandparent's) however the ticking is really loud.

Mom can't hear it, but she notices when it is stopped, so we have to keep it wound. That is one thing from this house I do not want!

809 The plan today is to on start stripping the paint from an older kitchen drop-leaf table. I found it next to a dumpster at an apartnent complex. Perfectly good shape, (except for the paint job). I may have to replace the brackets for the drop-leaf part, they work but are really rusty. Maybe they can just be cleaned up. My daughter and son in law recently bought a house that has an eat-in kitchen, so I'm going to refinish it for them.

Probably. On the auto shows they usually have a product or two that takes the rust off, and/or stops the rust and chemically changes it.
I do not know how well they work though

864 I just may make these! I need to go buy M&Ms and peanut butter chips (because nothing exceeds like excess).

866 The wife makes them a little thinner and not as chewy though.

867 I like thinner and crispier, I admit it, I'm a dunker.

868 > Obsolete Man Skills You Should Ditch

8. Servicing your wife. In the past, men were expected to have sex with their wives.

Instead, hire a pool boy from a country where the men still have measurable testosterone levels.

869 > Naval jelly does a job on rust

But makes the worst toast ever. Even worse than the contraceptive jelly.

874 Going to Fort Ligonier!!...Awesome. All my family is from the Ligonier/Waterford area. Want a great breakfast place, hit Ruthies Diner at 1848 Route 30. Swing by "Ligonier Beach" and Storybook Forrest. And of course visit The Diamond. Lots of great things to see there, you'll love it.

875 Welcome to western PA--my neck of the woods! Unfortunately Ligonier Beach is closed at the moment after last year's flooding bankrupted the owners, but Ruthie's is still open and so is Idlewild Park/Storybook Forest! Have a great time!
If you have time, visit Linn Run State Park and Beam's Rocks.
