THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

“Americans are weary of war, and have no interest in entering another Middle East conflict, particularly on behalf of Saudi Arabia. They will not stand by while the President undermines our security and jeopardizes the lives of our brave service members.” Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA)


Quote II

"President Trump is interested, his advisor, [Rudolph] Giuliani, newspapers, Democrats, Republicans are interested in whether pressure had been put on Ukraine. I want to say that we are an independent state, we have our own secrets,” Ukraine's Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko


Quote III

"We emailed each other. "It was the first kind of independent contact I'd had with him, where it wasn't his mom saying, ‘Hey, write your dad a letter, he'd love that.' I found his email address—I didn't know that kids emailed—found his email address and just shot him a note yesterday." Former Rep. Robert F. O'Rourke, (D-TX)


Quote IV

"It is quite extraordinary that the state spent all this money on a show trial when the purpose of the money was almost certainly to help their son get home.

"While at the same time victims of terrorist activity in the UK, again and again, receive no state legal aid, and scant compensation." Victims' rights campaigner Harry Fletcher

You can take the girl out of Florida. But you can't take Florida out of the girl. H/T ibguy

A woman bit a camel’s testicles at a Louisiana truck stop petting zoo -- and was cited for criminal trespassing, according to reports.

The woman, a Florida resident, was chasing her dog when she crawled into Caspar’s enclosure at the Tiger Truck Stop on I-10 in Grosse Tete, The Baton Rouge Advocate reported Sunday.

She told deputies she bit the 600-pound camel when he sat on her. It happened Thursday.

“She said: ‘I bit his b---- to get him off of me, I bit his testicles to get him off of me,’” Iberville Parish Deputy Louis Hamilton Jr. told the paper.

Eric Holder should be in prison. Another ATF Fast & Furious weapon recovered in Mexico.

The violent legacy of a secret government operation lives on.

Another weapon from Operation Fast and Furious has been found in the hands of violent armed groups in Mexico. The newest recovery happened on June 20 in Chihuahua, Mexico.

Mexican police and military arrested nine people and confiscated ten weapons after a gunfight between two groups. According to arrest documents, one of the weapons, a semi-automatic rifle, traces back to Fast and Furious.

The gun is listed as a “Romarm Cugir GP-WASR 10/63 rifl

Well, that didn't work out too well, now did it?

A marriage proposal turned tragic when an American man from Louisiana, drowned while proposing to his girlfriend underwater in Tanzania.

Steven Weber is seen on video proposing via a written note to his girlfriend, Kenesha Antoine, by swimming outside of a window at their underwater room during their stay at the Manta Resort.

“I can’t hold my breath long enough to tell you everything I love about you BUT…everything I love about you I love more every day!” the note read. “Will you please be my WIFE? Marry Me?”

Weber drowned before he was able to surface. Antoine posted the video and a heartbreaking farewell on Facebook:

Just what goes through one's mind while having sex with a minor in a detention center?

A former teacher who worked out of a youth detention center in Colorado is accused of having a sexual relationship with a juvenile inmate.
Authorities arrested Maggie Christine Stastny, 32, on Thursday and was charged with one felony count of sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust in connection with the incident, KKTV reported.

The Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office alleged that Stastny was working at the Marvin W. Foote Youth Services Center in Centennial when she had the sexual relationship with the underage student.

Florida residents in the news again. This time it involves a 6 year old.

A Florida grandmother was shocked to find out her 6-year-old granddaughter had been arrested Thursday for throwing a tantrum.

Meralyn Kirkland says Kaia’s journey to the juvenile detention center by Orlando Police Officers began at Lucious and Emma Nixon Elementary charter school.

“What do you mean she was arrested, he said ‘there was an incident and she kicked somebody and she is being charged and she is on her way,'” Kirkland explained.

The disorienting chaos was too much for Kirkland to process.

“She has a medical condition that we are working on getting resolved and he says, ‘what medical condition, she has a sleep disorder, sleep apnea,’ and he says, ‘well I have sleep apnea and I don’t behave like that.”

First grader Kaia was handcuffed and carted off where Kirkland says she was fingerprinted and even had a mug shot taken.

“They told us we had to wait a few minutes because Kaia was being fingerprinted, and when she said finger printed it hit me like a ton of bricks,” Kirkland said. “No six year old child should be able to tell somebody that they had handcuffs on them and they were riding in the back of a police car and taken to a juvenile center to be fingerprinted, mug shot”

Kaia is happy to be back home.

No shit Sherlock.

Vacations are supposed to be relaxing. Talk about a major SNAFU.

Thomas Cook, a 178-year-old British travel company and airline, declared bankruptcy early Monday morning local time in the UK, suspending operations and leaving hundreds of thousands of British tourists stranded around the world.

The travel company operates its own airline, with a fleet of nearly 50 medium and long-range jets, and owned several smaller airlines, including German carrier Condor. The airline still had several flights in the air as of Sunday night, but was expected to cease operations once they landed at their destinations.

Tesla may be on the verge of a million mile battery.

Last April, Elon Musk promised that Tesla would soon be able to power its electric cars for more than 1 million miles over the course of its lifespan. At the time, the claim seemed a bit much. That’s more than double the mileage current Tesla owners can expect to get out of their car’s battery packs, which are already well beyond the operational range of most other EV batteries. It just didn’t seem real—except now it appears that it is.

Earlier this month, a group of battery researchers at Dalhousie University, which has an exclusive agreement with Tesla, published a paper in The Journal of the Electrochemical Society describing a lithium-ion battery that “should be able to power an electric vehicle for over 1 million miles” while losing less than 10 percent of its energy capacity during its lifetime.

Led by physicist Jeff Dahn, one of the world’s foremost lithium-ion researchers, the Dalhousie group showed that its battery significantly outperforms any similar lithium-ion battery previously reported. They noted their battery could be especially useful for self-driving robotaxis and long-haul electric trucks, two products Tesla is developing.

“The toy food should accustom children and parents to the idea that the food of the future contains ingredients that many of today's adults would reject,”Ah the good old sustainable food project. Meanwhile, make my grilled beef medium rare.

A new Swedish project aimed at cultivating a taste for climate-friendly food among little children includes such dubious delicacies as Algae Ball, Bug Mac, and Tasty Waste.

The Swedish company WIN WIN has launched a new project aimed at paving the way for the “food of the future” in order to enable a “switch from high-carbon beef to low-carbon bugs”, the newspaper Veckans Affärer reported.

They promise not to reproduce. Good, we don't need children raised by these people.

Teenagers have been bursting into the conversation surrounding climate change — passionately advocating for the planet and their future living on it. But this college student is making her activism even more personal by pledging not to have children until leaders take action.


Canadian teen Emma Lim told CBS News she made the decision a few months ago not to have children in the future due to the climate crisis. "Because even though I want to have children more than almost anything, what kind of a mother would I be if I brought a baby into a world where I couldn't make sure they were safe?" she wrote on her website.

From there, she and a friend decided to create a website where others could "pledge" not to have kids as well, creating the hashtag #NoFutureNoChildren.

Making a get-a-way? Try not to be so conspicuous. Genius Award Winner.

A theft suspect who made her getaway on a bicycle was arrested last night when a sheriff’s deputy spotted her riding topless down the middle of a Florida highway, police report.

According to cops, a woman last night stole $19.99 flip flops and other merchandise from a clothing store on Okaloosa Island. A worker at Surfside Outfitters told investigators that the suspect placed one item into her bag and then walked out of the business wearing the stolen shoes around 7 PM.

The employee, cops reported, said the shoplifter “was last seen riding away, through the parking lot, on a bicycle.”

After the shoplifting episode, several callers to 911 reported that a woman was riding her bicycle erratically down the middle of Highway 98, a two-lane road that runs through the island.

When a sheriff’s deputy pulled alongside the bicycle, the rider was not wearing a shirt. When the cop asked the woman to pull over, she replied, “Make me.”

In short order, the deputy pulled ahead of the rider and eventually took her into custody.

The topless suspect was identified as Courtney Backes, 32. Seen in the above Instagram photo, Backes--who was found in possession of the stolen goods--was charged with retail theft and resisting arrest without violence, both misdemeanors. She was released from the county jail this morning on $1000 bond

Always try to enlighten someone's spirits. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

He originally wanted to be put on payroll. As I explained to him that wasn't possible I quickly came to what I thought was a fair agreement.

Our deal is this: Harold ran cranes for over 50 years and no matter how good you think you are at something there's always more to learn.

So I told Harold every day after work I'll sit with him for a little bit so he can critique me and judge me on how I did for that day (give him something to talk about that he enjoys)

While I also get to learn from him and In return I would bring him a black coffee every morning for as long as I'm here and buy him lunch twice a week from wherever he chooses. He didn't skip a beat before ABSOLUTELY! came out of his mouth.

112 You can't really control who you are attracted to so complaining that women don't like you because you are short is kind of dumb.


That being said, the Online Dating Window Shopping Thing (TM) is a real problem.

In the old days you had an extended social circle and most of your partners would come from that circle. So you had a certain number of people to pick from and if you didn't like any of them...hello cats...and that was the clear ending as everyone recognized it.

But now you have every single person in your 50 mile area available! Even if he or she hasn't actually logged in since Obama was a state senator.


This means that basically all men message the "top 20%" of women since women don't really initiate if they don't absolutely have to. And those women in turn find only a fraction of the men messaging them attractive.


So in aggregate men are investing effort for no return, and women find that they are only getting messages from "low status" men and players.


It is a real clusterfark.

"Because even though I want to have children more than almost anything, what kind of a mother would I be if I brought a baby into a world where I couldn't make sure they were safe?" she wrote on her website.

She was the uniformed officer trying for Inspector. Callahan asked her to describe her best felony arrest. Sorry, Inspector, no felony arrests. Well then, what was your best misdemeanor arrest. Sorry, no misdemeanor arrests. You've been an officer for x years. What have you been doing? Records clerk, sir.

Not only does she make Inspector (can you say SJW before there were SJWs? I knew you could), she gets assigned as Callahan's partner.

And establishes the pattern that Callahan's partner had better have their life insurance paid up and their will current.

This is, I believe where the chief makes a comment about Callahan shooting a suspect without cause. Callahan replies (to the effect) that a naked man chasing a naked woman down the street with a knife is plenty of cause to shoot him.

We realized early on that she was going to be pretty tall, so we gave her a choice -- ballet, Irish dancing, or Scottish Highland dancing. She chose the Scottish Highland dancing and did it for five or six years. Since she danced competitively, not only did she learn to stand straight instead of slumping like so many tall girls, she acquired poise from being judged in front of audiences.

268 Justice was rapid in the Winter War.

My favorite Winter War trick was that the Finns would infiltrate the Russian lines in sub-zero temperatures, and take out the Russian soup kitchens.

They would then let the Russians lie in the snow without hot food or drink for a couple of days, and then attack.

At that time, it was understood that a nuclear attack by the USSR was a matter of when, not if, and me, my family, and our nice suburban area would not survive. We still did the drill -- everybody out to the hallway, crammed against each other and the wall with our hands laced behind our necks.

After moving to Nebraska, I had some friends who lived in Des Moines. They were envious of us in Omaha -- we'd die instantly while they would die slowly from the fall out.

I told him no, then referred him to another bookstore that was both a general bookstore and much more literary minded than mine. He looked at me sadly and said he'd already been there and no one there even recognized the name.

380 boulder, Fleetwood Mac has been around for so long and apparently been through so much.

The legend is that when Lindsey Buckingham was (kind of forced into) writing/recording Tango In The Night for FM, he decided to make everyone use a studio he had built *right inside his bedroom,* which was especially awkward for ex-girlfriend Stevie... who got revenge by helping herself to his liquor cabinet while he was setting everything up.

Result: Lindsey had to be very creative with a lot Stevie's vocal takes, which were all but unusable, she was slurring so much.

That was a really strange scene that just doesn't fit in with the rest of the movie (or any of the other Frankenstein movies). I take it as this still being the early days of film, especially of SFX, and the filmmakers are excited about playing around with some new film tricks they've developed. So they stuck that scene in.

The character which was copied by Cloris Leachman is almost funnier than her version was.

409 NGU many of us speculated that Romney would be as bad/worse than McCain. Thing is, Mitt is very smart, McCain was not a bright guy. Also Mitt seems like his sliminess/perfidy are calculated; McCain was psycho [his nickname among many staff years ago], not well, emotionally, liable to act spontaneously and out of spite.


Both loathsome and pernicious in their own way.


And UT really produces winners - their other senator, Lee, is determined to ram through an H-1B "reform" that will result in a largely Indian invasion of skilled labor [as opposed to a more "diverse" invasion]. Of course it's the invasion, regardless or origin or flavor, that's the issue. GOP fanatically endlessly pushing awful immigration changes, and even this WH - notwithstanding its brief, quickly dropped flirtation with real, desperately needed, 8O/2O popular reform like the RAISE Act - has mostly just rubber-stamped whatever Congress had the chutzpah to do.

455 Shit, guys. We shoulda listened. Now our reckless emissions of CO2 threaten the very fabric of the universe.

Yes they would. Funny you mention that. A while back, they observed a central black hole that was ejected from a galaxy.

General Relativity gravitation behaves very differently from Newtonian gravity, and this is one of the big differences in some ridiculous mass/strong field systems.

Two galaxies merge, and their central black holes collide, or do a death inspiral. The resulting *YUGE* burst of gravitational radiation is assymetric, and the radiation kick back can knock the black hole out of the galaxy.

Again, very non-Newtonian behavior. Momentum is still conserved, and the center of mass still doesn't move, it's just that the gravitational radiation actually carries momentum and mass itself.

I towed a trailer around all weekend. I have a steep narrow driveway. I used 4WD Lo getting in and out and then it wouldn't get out of 4WD Lo.

And then it wouldn't go into any gear. Park made a grating noise. Eventually going in and out of things it all came back together and everything worked and the regular 2WD goes through all its gears like a champ. (I'm scared to try 4WD Lo again).

Is it safe to assume that the actual transmission is OK and it's just a problem with that stupid dashboard dial? Is transmission trouble looming? Is there an action I should take now to keep things from getting worse?

GR is still king, and the actual empirical verification of gravitational radiation occurred ~100 years after Uncle Al first published General Relativity.

They had been all but directly observed. The inspiralling behavior of strong field orbiting systems due to energy loss via gravitational radiation was observed in binary pulsar systems and agreed with the predictions of GR to within the error of measurement.

But they hadn't been directly observed. So there were a few wondering if maybe they didn't exist.

It is a cheap part. Less than $20.
So, my car runs fine, but the engine light is on because the oil pressure sensor itself is faulty. It is out.
Mind you, the oil level is OK and the oil pressure is OK, and the car runs just fine.
But I can't get smogged unless that !*@% light goes out.

It is a thing to be avoided, as it is hard on all of the driveline components.

If things seem okay, then in the absence of further manifestation of problems, I would forget about it.

Everyone is assuming that GR will be "wrong" at some level, and some quantum gravity will take over.

Thus everyone would love to find some deviation in gravity from the predictions of GR.

So, far GR has held up within the experimental error in every observation made.

That's wasn't clear and sounded backwards. Thorne won the Nobel for LIGO's detection, not the ejected black hole thing.

Thorne is the "T" in MTW, for Misner, Thorne, and Wheele's "Gravitation", which is about the King James Version of GR texts. It's a bit outdated, now, but it's considered the classic GR text.

561 And then it wouldn't go into any gear. Park made a grating noise. Eventually going in and out of things it all came back together and everything worked and the regular 2WD goes through all its gears like a champ. (I'm scared to try 4WD Lo again).

Is it safe to assume that the actual transmission is OK and it's just a problem with that stupid dashboard dial? Is transmission trouble looming? Is there an action I should take now to keep things from getting worse?

Thanks.
Posted by: Bandersnatch at September 24, 2019 12:51 AM (FNXDu)

I know just enough about these systems to be dangerous, but here goes:

The 2WD, 4Hi, 4Lo switch actuates a motor and gear train that moves the shift rail in the transfer case through its range. That motor also moves a switch on the transfer case that reports back to the dash switch what position the T-case actually is in. The engine management computer probably mediates this communication, and asks itself the question: "Is the transfer case shift rail in the position called for by the dash knob?" And if the answer is "no", it will apply power to the motor, and it might inhibit transmission shifting until the answer is "yes".

(this sort of wired servo system could be done entirely with 1950's style DC wiring, like Packard did with their push-button shift, but now that the engine management computer is there, it makes sense to use it)

Note that, if either 4Hi or 4Lo is selected, another servo on the front differential clutches in the front drive axles to the differential gears, doing the same job you used to by hopping out and setting the front hubs.

Now, if you were towing the trailer on a hard surface, like a steep paved driveway, your driveline may have "bound up". As in, your rear wheels made 123 full revolutions, and your front wheels made only 122 1/2. This puts a lot of pent-up torque on the drive shaft, and the transfer case gears, and that torque can put them into a bind, and makes it hard, or impossible perhaps, for the servo motor to effect the movement of the shift rail. Ever experience difficulty in shifting an auto transmission out of "park" if it has been holding the car on a steep grade? That.

My guess is that is what happened to you. If it happens again, try driving ahead or back slowly, and get on and off the throttle cyclically to alternately load the drive line in pull and coast mode. To do that, it has to pass through neutral load, and if you have set your dash knob to 2WD, the shift should occur on one or more of these neutral crossings.

I doubt there is anything wrong with your Xterra. But it might be prudent to have the level of fluid in the transfer case checked. Most 4X4's have separate fluid reservoirs for the transmission and T-case.

Hope this helps.

..I'm fairly familiar with these particular 4wd setups, assuming it's a 2nd gen setup (although the first shouldn't be that different).

- Grinding is bad (I know, very helpful)
- It's important to shift into neutral before going into or out of 4Lo. You need to be stopped. Stop, N, turn the knob to 4Hi, listen for the whirr-kerklunk from the transfer case under your floorboards. Then you push the knob into 4Lo. Listen for the different whirr-kerklunk. You still have clunks, they're just quieter.

Here is the deal, though: while you can shift into and out of 4Hi while driving slow and straight with no wheel spin, 4Lo may not engage until you've put it back into gear from N and driven 20-30 feet. Straight, no wheel spin, no turning. Especially no turning on dry hard surfaces. The 4Lo light will blink until it's really engaged.
When it's time to get out of 4Lo, reverse the procedure. Stop, N, switch to 4Hi, wait for the whirrr-kerklunk. You can then either carry on in 4Hi or switch to 2Hi, on out of N, and carry on.
When you switch back to 2Hi, the system likes to stay stuck in 4WD. The best way to fix that is to stop, shift to reverse, back up straight about 10 feet, then drive straight forward; the 4x4 light will go out and you should be out of 4WD. If you are on loose surfaces, always check when you get back to pavement that you're actually in 2WD by turning tight and listening for the tires scrubbing.
Main cause of getting stuck in weird states is spinning tires or turning while using the transfer case knob. If you break something, it's almost certainly the transfer case, not the transmission itself, so I wouldn't worry too much.

563 And as Peon noted, you may have bound something if you did a lot of turning and backing in 4Lo on pavement. Reversing and going back forward may help there as well.

565 Well it's all fun until you're stuck in the ass end of nowhere with a drivetrain setting you can't get home on.

I do have to admit I'm partial to the old manual hubs and physical transfer case levers. They're easy to fix unless you grenade them, and even then the hubs are easy to fix or replace if you have a spare. I've rebuilt buggered ones on the side of the trail.


Almost all of the modern electric switched transfer cases have weird quirks. They'll work fine once you learn them and modern auto transmissions they're coupled to are superior for most offroad purposes, but few people have enough time doing serious 4x4 work to learn the odd things about their particular setup.

Romancing the Stone was a gem. It might be a cliche to say it, but they don't make movies like that anymore. I would put Crocodile Dundee and Romancing the Stone above any and all "fun" adventure stories that have come out since. I guess some would prefer the Mummy or Sahara but I don't think they have the same element of fun and aspiration with a real story. Sure it is situational and it depends on which era you grew up in, but they don't make stand alone movies like Romancing the Stone anymore. As for the sequel, it was not so good.

On my 2008 Suburban, the transfer case control knob is basically identical to the headlight switch knob, and located right beside it. On my F150, the transfer case knob is located next to the heater fan switch, and again is similar. Manufacturers should make these knobs a unique design, and adopt it industry-wide. And the switches should be designed so that one has push in against a fairly substantial spring, before the knob can be turned.

I hear what you are saying. It is like when a golfer goes to Dicks for equipment. The problem is not the equipment but that the customer can't be properly fitted. He has no chance just by walking in. But you can get ammo at Wal Mart and golf balls at Dicks I guess. I wouldn't know as I would never do business with Dicks. Too bad the golf industry has been shrinking as people's attention spans have been waning. Many people in this country have to got to a dicks to get equipment.

And let's be honest, even with gun stores you have to discriminate between good advice and bad. I have heard some whoppers in my day.

Interestingly, I found out not long ago that Dollar General doesn't source much product from China. i think it is because they sell a lot of perishables, but it is still interesting.

The concern with Wal Mart is when they drop firearms, vape, whatever, they are making an argument heard loud and wide. Ok, they might be handing off the business to mom and pop. But they are also putting a black box on the business, they are saying it is not fortune 500 approved. Good luck to mom and pop fighting against the ban train.

It was a really good flick. A couple of semi related flicks that I recommend are Dark Blue with Kurt Russell and and Insomnia with Al Pacino. These were really good movies that I bet a lot of people haven't seen. A third is Narc with Ray Liotta.

I would guess Wall Street was Michael Douglas's biggest role. That one stands out as it was a hit piece on Wall Street by Oliver Stone. It was a hit piece just like Platoon was a hit piece with a disclaimer at the end that it was an ode. BS, Stone always had a vendetta and wanted to take down everyone around him. But the Douglas character in Wall Street backfired. Young guys wanted to be Gordon Gekko for good or ill. It was mostly for ill as is shown in the movie Boiler Room.

One tragic aspect of Black Rain is that Yusaku Matsuda, who played the villain, was diagnosed with bladder cancer before shooting began, literally chose to forgo chemotherapy because he didn't want it to interfere with his acting. Near the end of filming, he was urinating blood and the cancer had spread to his spine and lungs. He died approximately one month after the shooting was completed.

I hear ya there. That is some crazy dediction. I don't want to speak for the man but it seems like he wanted to leave a legacy of sorts. I really like that film.

I haven't seen Salvador but will check it out on your recco. No doubt Stone is a a talented director. Even Platoon had its moments, and that is why people will argue about it even those on the same political side. The movie had some great acting and great production. My problem with Platoon is that they took every atrocity that happened in a ten year plus war, with over a million in country, and boiled it down to one platoon. it was basically a lie but a well choreagraphed lie. I guess those are the best ones.

I wonder what you think of the Creighton book/film Rising Sun. I thought it was ok but over the top. It was written when Japanese culture was ascendant and people thought they would take over. The peak to me was when a Japanese company bought Pebble Beach. But from that point it all seemed to wane. The Japanese sold Pebble at a huge loss and the economy went stagnant for many years. I don't think they went into the poor house, but the growth abated. To me Rising Sun was ok but nothing special.

Posted by: Puddleglum at September 24, 2019 04:18 AM (bt3kx)

i actually prefer Apocalypse Now and see it as a story set during the Vietnam War. I think the reason I feel this way is that I read Conrad's Heart of Darkness. I give the movie leeway I don't give to Platoon. However, when they asked Coppola if he movie was really about Vietnam, he said, "It was Vietnam".
Hey, no worries, you are an artist and did a great job. But i have known a few that might have had a bit more, let;s just say, hands on experience.

my dad and i got into a fight about it. Not that kind of fight of course but an argument. I was young and thought it was cool. He said "I was there!". Look i think it was an important film but it only gave the hollywood version. Some bash the Green Berets for being too conservative. The think a historian should aspire to is truth. So many want to make a point and assume most wont realize they are playing them.

all you have to to do is look at Vietnam vs ww2. one was considered a good war and the their vets were lauded. For the most part Vietnam vets were at most pitied. War is the same, same killing and all. But the populace reacts to the narrative. i know a lot of Vietnam vets who would never consider themselves victims. They did there job and many volunteered. Others had different experiences and that is fine. But they don't get to cancel out there buddies.

Types, deletes. No reason to change the narrative now.

Posted by: Quint at September 24, 2019 04:56 AM (n13/j)

607 As i have said many times before, there were many Vietnam's. Everyone had their own experiences. You hear a lot about people who went in on the lottery, avoided the draft in some way, went o college or Rotc etc. But All i am saying is there were other people, some who demanded to go and put their commision on the line. I am not saying one group was wrong, that is not for me to say. i never spent a day in combat. But it annoys me at times that I know people who did the opposite of the hollyweird narative and few if any know this. It is history.

understood sir. There are so many thing about each other that we don't understand because we have different upbringings etc. I was always told not to get a tatoo as you were not supposed to do that to your body. But I can completely understand other cultures, thinking differently.

This song from Chris Ledoux might have some resonance or I may be way off. Either way, I would never tell someone what to do with their body if they were not harming another, as I am a libertarian-conservative. The libertarian comes first but it is only a modifier to conservative. I am a conservative but not statist.

Not just flavored with fairy dust and unicorn farts, but totally fucking wrong.

New York Times reporter Robin Pogrebin coached sources on what to say and how to respond to her questions based on information she obtained

She sent text to people telling them how to respond to interview questions before the interview.

She interviewed people that were NOT at Yale when Kav was there to et confirmations.

Posted by: rhennigantx at September 24, 2019 06:52 AM (JFO2v)

The teacher unions have always been the biggest Demo strongholds. These people are not fighting to improve grades or increase accountability. . They want theirs, and the vote is their payoff. There are good teachers, but the unions are a joke. They are as Demo as the AFL-CIO or Tamnany Hall. The kids have nothing to do with it.

Yet oddly enough, 74% of those who respond admitted to knowing nothing of the content of the report.

And another 14% knew only 'little' about the content of the report.

I haven't watched it. I just found out today that this kid has some type of malady To me it matters not. If adults are now taking their marching orders from children, this country has skipped a few beats. I guess the Father know's Best remake will have to be put on hold.

If these people could prove that man is causing world destroying warming, then just go ahead and do it. Forget the politics, and political races. Stop demonizing people and industries and freaking prove it. I would be open to a frank discussion of whether the world is going to end in X years. Stop playing games and prove it! I would like to live too. But I doubt you, you lying lefty scolds. Prove it with out the bullshit.

That happens here in Texas alot. School districts are their own little Government entities with enormous taxing power. The State legislature reeled their power in somewhat last session and the howling of the school districts could be heard for hundreds of miles.

I thought it was the Queen what suspended parliament at the PM's request...their court is going to overrule the Queen?

but then, I might be mistaken...

710 When i read about Greta i though you were all talking of Van Susteren. I tend to ignore whatever the MFM is pushing. I have no opinions on the child, but I have a lot of opinions about the adults using her. What if she is wrong? What will she think 30 years from now if she is wrong? What did her parents and enablers do to her? I know, it is like gun control. They will never admit a mistake not matter what the facts. Either way, they should not be using a kid. There are other recent examples of course.

714 @706
The thing that frosts my nub is that there is actually audio and video of Biden boasting he used his authority and the withholding of aid unless the prosecutor was fired and replaced, he actually laughs and makes light of it, and the assembled group listening to him boast, breaks out in laughter at his misdeeds.

If I were Trump all I would do is carry a tablet with that queued up and play it every time a reporter asks him about Ukraine.

Because no news organization is even covering the Biden situation from that angle, even FOX covers this from the leftist frame.
