THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I


And at the World Series, the D.C. crowd heckled Trump.

What a contrast. As America cheers a victory over terror, swamp fans boo the guy bringing the news.

But it's a risk an outsider takes when he shows up in a place full of journalists and bureaucrats.

If you play the same tune 24/7, life has a way of mocking the song.

But it's all good. It's even all great.

Terrorism will never die, but at least be glad that one terrorist did.

And our hero dog will recover, even if the media won't. Greg Gutfeld


Quote II

The coverage of Obama was smotheringly, sycophantically, saccharin sweet. I mean, every day you had to watch out for your insulin level skyrocketing if you paid attention to it. So you would conclude that Obama was massively loved, massively adored. And then you would see polls on Michelle (My Belle) Obama, and her love was even higher and the percentage of Americans that admired her was even higher than The One. But Trump is actually more popular with his base than Obama was. Rush Limbaugh


Quote III

"All intelligence and access to al-Baghdadi as well as the identification of his place were the result of our own work. Our intelligence source was involved in sending coordinates, directing the airdrop, participating in and making the operation a success until the last minute,"Polat Can


Quote IV

“Children have no capacity to comprehend these long-term consequences, so the use of this drug in gender-confused children constitutes unethical experimentation,” “Informed consent is not possible.” Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons


Quote V

On California today. If I wanted to live with corrupt politicians, shit on my streets, incompetent bureaucrats, and intermittent electricity I never would have left India. Gerard Van der Leun

I wish billionaire Warren Buffet would say to CA. Gov. Gavin Newsom LOLGF!!

G&E stock is sinking rapidly. But, no worries! California Governor Gavin Newsom has a solution.

…Gov. Gavin Newsom encouraged billionaire investor Warren Buffett to buy the troubled utility, which has been linked to the 60,000-plus-acre fire burning in Sonoma County. The fire originated near a company transmission tower that experienced a malfunction.

Newsom wants Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway conglomerate to make a bid for PG&E, but Buffett has so far been silent about the proposal.


Berkshire owns:

PacifiCorp, the largest grid owner and operator in the West. Gov. Jerry Brown had pushed to create a Western regional grid tying California to several states, but that stalled.
Pacific Power, which serves customers in Oregon, Washington and far Northern California.
Kern River Gas Transmission Company, which has a pipeline connecting Rocky Mountain natural gas-producing basins and Western markets.
Berkshire’s holdings also include coal. Though Berkshire says it intends to “retire” its coal plants by 2038, California law all but prohibits the importation of coal-powered electricity.

Newsom is at least proposing a tried-and-true fix: Capitalism solving socialism’s many problems.

How To Treat A Gunshot Wound

Gunshot wounds can be one of the most devastating injuries a person can endure. Depending on the type of bullet, its trajectory when it hits you, and the location it enters, a bullet can rip apart internal organs, break bones, puncture lungs, and cause severe blood loss from critical arteries. Because gunshot wounds can cause such an array of damage, it would take years of training to understand how to treat them all effectively. But, there are things everyone can do to help buy time for a gunshot victim — primarily in the form of stopping the bleeding, keeping the victim stable, and seeking medical attention as quickly as possible. It also helps to have some prior knowledge of properly making/using a tourniquet, handling a sucking chest wound, treating someone for shock, and administering CPR.

According to Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) you cannot question dedication to one's country.

45 people from Fort Hood and their families disagree.

Killing people is wrong. So is attempting to take down the POTUS by leaking. I can damn well criticize anyone I wish to. After all this is still the USA.

Yes, You Can Overdose on Black Licorice


But eating large amounts of licorice has to have some downside, and the FDA has confirmed: enough glycyrrhizin (its tasty component) can reduce potassium levels in the body, which occasionally results in “abnormal heart rhythms, as well as high blood pressure, edema (swelling), lethargy, and congestive heart failure.” The risk seems to only be in people over 40.

What Handing Out Full Size Candy Bars on Halloween Says About You, According to Behavioral Economists


Social media amplifies any moment and puts our focus much more on our public self and how we are viewed by the public. “It’s a halo effect too,” Hogan said. “If I give out big candy, am I generous? Am I rich? Am I successful?” She said that Halloween is an opportunity to tell our neighbors who we are.

But it’s also an opportunity to get in line with our peers or differentiate ourselves from them. “There is a tension between wanting to conform,” Small said. “And also be different.”

Boo-f*cking-hoo. Fringe people who proselytize face discrimination.

Though mockery of vegans has long been commonplace, the true extent of that bias still might leave you surprised. According to The Guardian, a 2015 study by Cara C. MacInnis and Gordon Hodson found that not only have vegans faced discrimination, but that it’s on par with the hatred that a number of minorities face from bigots.

Published in the Group Processes & Intergroup Relations journal, the paper concluded that vegans joined certain minorities in facing a level of discrimination that’s nearly without equal.

Perhaps if they lived their lives each day without being in others faces their lives would be better. Frankly I don't care if you're a vegan, stay out of my grill.

Independence does have its rewards. In Puerto Rico, The Days Of Legal Cockfighting Are Numbered

Nobody knows exactly how many fighting roosters there are in Puerto Rico. The breeders who raise them for cockfights say at least half a million. Two hundred and fifty of those live in neatly lined cages in José Torres' backyard in the mountain town of Utuado, and should the police show up to take them when cockfighting is banned at the end of this year, he has no plans to give them up.

"I already told my wife and I told my mother," Torres said, "that anyone who comes and tries to take one of my roosters will have to kill me first. And I'm not the only one. There are thousands of us."

Holy Shit fat & grease.H/T CBD

A 40-tonne fatberg the size of a double-decker bus has been cleared from a London sewer by Thames Water engineers who pulled out some of it by hand.

The mass of fat, grease and other materials that weighed the same as three red buses, was discovered earlier this year clogging up a sewer in Greenwich, the water company said.

It took three weeks for Thames Water workers to clear the “disgusting” blockage which at points took up 80% of the sewer’s capacity. They used a combination of high-powered water jets to blast it loose and removed debris by hand.

Oops. The wrong ingredients were used. Genius Award Winner.

Police say a funeral in eastern Germany ended on an involuntary drug high when mourners were accidentally served hash cake.


Fifteen metal detectorists fall ill 'after eating cannabis-spiked cake'
Read more
Rostock police said on Tuesday that after the burial in Wiethagen, the funeral party had gone to a restaurant for coffee and cake, as is customary in Germany. But after eating the cake, 13 people experienced nausea and dizziness and needed medical treatment.

A police investigation revealed that the restaurant employee in charge of the cakes had asked her 18-year-old daughter to bake them.

However, the mother accidentally took the wrong cake from the freezer to the funeral. She took a hash cake that the teenager had made for a different occasion.

Police said the 18-year-old was under investigation.

Nice group of young men. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Ashley Adamietz is a senior at Foothill High School and was recently diagnosed with leukemia.

One by one, the football players wanted to show their support for her.

Each of the 57 players dropped a rose at her feet as they ran onto the field before the start of the game.

The roses were orange, which is the color for leukemia awareness.

If they're making their presence known, they want to know it has worked. I thank them out loud and I mean it. I say hi. I always feel a little crazy doing it but I do it. They do not tend to hang around.

I feel totally weird talking about this stuff because it's kind of a no-no with Jesus and God. And I am 100% about Jesus. He is practically the only thing that makes sense of this crazy idiot world.

Like I said, I experienced things that felt like evil presences as a kid.

70 Liz Cheney: It's 'shameful' for Americans to be skeptical of anti-Trump impeachment witness -

"Questioning the patriotism - questioning the dedication to country - of people like Lieutenant Colonel Vindman and others who have testified (is shameful)."


I'm not questioning his patriotism, or his dedication to the USA. He can be the greatest soldier since since Audie Murphy, and he could have a partisan political axe to grind, and his concept of dedication to country may be different than mine or of many, many others. And I don't think wearing a uniform and earning combat awards means you will never lie.

Arleigh Burke class DDG. As Mike Hammer says, in a left full rudder turn with a swell from off the current port bow. Looks like it is going All Ahead Flank. (around 27-30 knots).

The ship is probably exercising the crew at a battle simulations drill, due to the battle ensign off the aft mast. The ship is at general quarters, but this is not an ASW scenario.

I recently bartended a Bar Mitzvah (sp?) of about 220 attendees that lasted 5 hours. Sadly, my tips amounted to $18 for the entire evening, which fairly well made be quite irritable.

But....the organizer of the event had purchased a case of Arak for the guests to enjoy. at the end of the event he had a few bottles left and was nice enough to give me a bottle. It is an anisette, similar to Ouzo, Raki or Sambuca.

In any event, I was telling some of the folks I was training last night about it and they asked if I had tried it yet and I had not. They asked why not, I should crack it open.

And so I did. And then I had more. And then I had quite a bit more. And by 3 a.m., I had finished the entire fifth of it and was completely obliterated.

I will say this, I don't know if death by black licorice is a particularly gruesome end, but I can tell head-splitting headache by black licorice liquor definitely sucks an enormous donkey d*ck of epic proportions.

106 Yes, You Can Overdose on Black Licorice

But eating large amounts of licorice has to have some downside, and the FDA has confirmed: enough glycyrrhizin (its tasty component) can reduce potassium levels in the body, which occasionally results in "abnormal heart rhythms, as well as high blood pressure, edema (swelling), lethargy, and congestive heart failure." The risk seems to only be in people over 40.

I hope you are right, bc I just read the Resolution Rules and they are not anything like previous Rules. Nothing is permitted to be entered as evidence or witnesses called unless acceptable to Schiff and Nadler. No exculpatory evidence will be provided from the closely held depositions. And, if Nadler decides that PT has not been forthcoming w witnesses and documents, he can deny any involvement by PT's attorney when it moves from Schiff to Nadler/Judiciary.

182 Ilhan Omar voted "present" on a House resolution condemning the Armenian genocide. Actually, it's surprising that she didn't vote "no", considering that she is one of Erdogan's toadies.

But her reasoning was interesting - you aren't allowed to condemn any particular genocide, unless you simultaneously condemn all other genocides.

She specified some examples:

A true acknowledgment of historical crimes against humanity must include both the heinous genocides of the 20th century, along with earlier mass slaughters like the transatlantic slave trade and Native American genocide, which took the lives of hundreds of millions of indigenous people in this country

So, she referred only obliquely to the Holocaust (of course), but the two examples she cites are interesting.

Why did she cite the transatlantic slave trade, and not the Arab slave trade, which went on longer and involved more people? Oh yeah, the Arab slave trade was conducted by Muslims, and the Somalis were prominent slavers. Can't mention that.

But the "hundreds of millions of indigenous people in this country"? Where did she get she get that from?

Looking at Wikipedia, the maximum estimated native population of North America is 16 million, and the usual estimates are 2.1 to 7 million people. Does she think that Native American tribes had teeming multimillion person urban areas with their near-Stone Age technology?

Bottom line: she's an idiot. But we already knew that.

Another minor point: although Leftists like to call the rapid decline in the population of American natives a "genocide", it's wasn't - it was the inadvertent introduction of European diseases that caused this. It would make as much sense to accuse the Mongols of "genocide" for introducing the Black Death to Europe.

Plus they can fend mostly for themselves if necessary (though they'll of course be meatier with regular feeding).

Still good to feed them once in a while, though, because as long as you feed them occasionally they'll hang around just waiting to be caught and eaten (see "IQ of approximately -100").

I'm going to have to respectfully disagree, at least in part. Murder is wrong. But killing can certainly be right, depending on the circumstances. Self-defense, defense of one's family or the innocent, the inventor of the vuvuzela, defense of one's homeland against foreign invasion etc.

I would bet a very large sum of money that "Omar" has slavers much nearer in her family tree than I, or the majority of Americans, do.
As far as I know, none of mine ever owned slaves, and they all fought for the Union in the Civil War (one was KIA).
Plus many Americans (such as most, but by no means all, of the Jews, Italians, Poles, etc.) didn't even come here until well after the Civil War was over.

Posted by: Insomniac at October 30, 2019 10:15 PM (NWiLs)


Never experienced (that I know of) ghosts or spirits. But I do remember a very strange/weird incident that defied explanation.

I had a good friend, now deceased, who I knew since around 4th or 5th grade (we always debated as to what year it was). I even live him with for about two years when I moved to NYC. After I moved from Brooklyn to Queens, we'd talk just about every night on the phone. This one time I told him I had a weird dream the previous night and he said so did he. I started telling him about my dream then he started in with additional details from my/his dream. After about 15 minutes, we realized we had the same dream! I have no idea what that meant nor has that ever happened with anyone else ever again.

I can't explain it because some things are unexplainable, but it was very weird.

As I remember it, picture a nice little Wisconsin town with some older, very nice looking buildings mixed in with more recent, grubby rundown stuff that was just tossed up, and then take away all the nice buildings and you've got it.

I've realized that East Coast upper class families send their children to Europe in college summers to Learn Things. Well, I got to go to Adams-Friendship and drive a combine - but i think I learned more, and more that was important, that summer than any of those nicely manicured boys with tightly creased slacks did in Europe.

266 I perceived an apparition once. True story, my word as a webworker.

I just suddenly had a distinct impression of a person, tall, presumably male, standing a few feet away from me, looking down at me ... although there was nothing to see. Weird. The other person in the room was aware of none of this.

I began dispassionately observing simultaneous activities of my mind:

Part of my mind began, rapidly, theorizing what kind of residual visual effect or undigested bit of meat or other brain trick was involved.

Part of my mind was reassuring myself that even if it were a real thing, there was no threat. Jesus is my protector and anyway it could be a friendly spirit.

And in part of my mind, I noted with detached amusement, my panic level was rising rapidly and uncontrollably. I was about to freak out.

That's when I peripherally perceived another apparition, this one below the left arm of my chair. From looking up and right, I managed to turn and look down and left, and saw, again, nothing there but, again, the sense of some small living thing, and it was looking up at me just as the other had been looking down at me.

That's when the stupid black-and-white cat, Sylvester, walked out from under my chair, and locked into that apparition's position, looking up at me. Haha! It was as much like a premonition as anything I've ever had. Funny cat! Wait, what?

I noticed the panic was totally gone. When I looked back up, there was no apparition. That was it, the whole experience, all in the space of just a few moments, really. On a normal, sunny afternoon. Four, five decades ago.

No idea what it was about. If it weren't for the perception presaging the cat, I would naturally dismiss the whole thing as brain gas.

But, if that cat 'aura' was real, then what was...

This happened to me (some might call it an "out-of-body experience") with a woman I worked with (it was sexual) and it obviously led to other things.

She might have been extra-sensitive. She said that she had been in a prior relationship with a guy who had a car rollover in the middle of the night in another part of the country -- and she immediately sensed it and woke up knowing he was in trouble. Spooky.

Absolutely. That's the nature of progressivism...no matter how far left your predecessors went, it wasn't far enough. And, in some kind of politically-warped version of Moore's law, the time to become an "outdated failed leftist" is getting shorter and shorter.

My Mom told me a similar story which she related to me years after the incident.

She was sleeping and had a premonition/dream that something had happened to her Mom. She got up and called my aunt, with whom she lived and who took care of her. The first words out of my Mom's mouth were, 'How is Mom?' My aunt told her, 'She's in the hospital and doing fine -- HOW DID YOU KNOW?'

You can find it at the Spec's chain here in Texas.

Course this was before the effing federal government expanded so much that its' minions invaded all of what is now called, "northern VA."

Just try to explain to her that some teams go over a 100 years without winning the world series and that she may grow up, grow old and die without the Astros ever playing in the World Series again.

You are supposed to dribble cold water into it to make it milky, it is called "louching"

I don't drink Raki, but I adore Aguardiente, which is pretty much the same thing made out of sugar cane.

I actually liked the Colombian stuff because it was originally made out the cane bagasse that was left over after they got the molasses out of the cane, after they got the sugar out. However, it is now made out of white rum just like every sensible country around the Caribbean.

Unadulterated popskull, that unfortunately goes for $20 a bottle.
I buy cheap white rum and macerate anise and star anise in it, it makes me plenty happy for the price.

I save my $20 purchases for the odd bottle of Pisco . . .

796 Just put into DVD player Dauntless: Battle of Midway.

Pretty sure which true story this is based on. A Dauntless crew after the first strike who went in the drink and IIRC about five days later being fished out by a PBY piloted by a guy the Dauntless pilot had not seen since Biloxi high school.

They used a few photos and the Trumpeter 1/32d scale Dauntless to build their full size SBD cockpit.

824 Jim, that would be a fun plane. But would need to win a lottery.

Rhomboid, well yeah but a US BB at Midway is flat out wrong. They got the Dauntless looking close. Even had the lift cable that is part of the installed equipment in the pilot's cockpit. But missed the stand-by compass located at the top of the windscreen. The DF loop should have been painted half silver/half-black. No flare pistol port on the left hand side of the radio-gunner's compartment.

The twin .30s have the brackets for the covers for factory built, the covers are when the machine guns are stowed but no covers are present and there are no cut-outs in the sheet-metal to pull the machine guns out. Actual field-modified -3s with the two .30s still have the two spring-loaded doors for the single gun and just below that are cut-outs to allow the upgraded firepower to be pulled out.

Indeed. I did add water with, I was familiar with the practice because my work neighbors are Turkish and gave me a bottle of Raki once.

It was actually reasonably enjoyable. I had three female trainees with me I started in on it. They helped me with the drinking of it to an extent. We probably did 5 or 6 shots together with a 12 pack of Yuengling Golden Pilsner as well. I vaguely remember at some point two of the tongue kissing at my urging and based on the mess I came into at 8 am that I must have made a Ramos Fizz because I left some Fords gin and a bottle orange blossom water out and there were lemon and lime rinds on the bar top as well as a small carton of heavy cream spilled all over the bar as well.

Additionally it appears that my ambulatory skills were somewhat impaired, as a bar stool was knocked over and I left one shoe behind.

I still feel hungover 22 hours later but this Miller Lite appears to be helping a bit. Ah well, I can't be good all the time.

Related, at least one senator [Hawley, MO] has said it's time to end use of ABA ratings. I've wondered about that one for many, many years. Impossible to believe that an organization that fringe produces useful ratings. Of course wholesale rejection of the legal cult extremism is what's really needed. Not a sign of that at any level. Just an empty hope that changing personnel will magically restore a semblance of constitutional order.

Alas, some few very advanced Mig pilots challenged the Phantom in climbing scissors turns.

.......

No, they are humorless scolds.

They have no joy. They have no love. They have no faith in anything beyond this world.

They believe themselves to be God, but they are not a benevolent God that loves mankind. They are a vengeful, destructive, tyrannical God that seeks to destroy, maim, oppress and rule everyone on the Earth. They believe that there is no redemption for anyone who has ever erred, save for worship of their particularly ideology for which then all things can be forgiven and redeemed.

Sound familiar? It is, because the enemy of our souls is the great imitator of the true and living God, so his format tries to tear people away from true knowledge and supplant it with an imitation kingdom and king. But that King has no love, no joy, no hope, no compassion, it rules only by might and the hand of destruction and that's how you know that it is false. You can recognize it because it's core is rotten. That tree bears no fruit.

We are in the midst of a war that has been raging since Satan was cast out of Heaven.

868 That's the amazing shock of the culture war from our side. "How can we be hated so much by people who are our fellow citizens? How can we be such total strangers that they know literally nothing about us? And how can both of these things be occurring at the same time within people?"

Haidt said about reason and passion: that passion is like an elephant, and reason is like the rider who tells the elephant where to go. The rider THINKS he is in charge. It is true so long as the elephant is somewhat indifferent.

Their reason comes out of their media bubble.
Their passion comes out of their secular religion.
Both are toxic.

it's supposed to be low 80's here all weekend, with a breeze

fortunately, i live at the bottom of the hill, and the wind blows up it, so even if there is a fire in my AO, i should be good.

when we were house shopping back in '03, we dismissed several possibilities because of fire danger issues.

of course, we are both natives/locals, so we instinctively consider that in decision making.

914 "Positive news on the depression front.
Anti-inflammatory agents, such as aspirin/paracetamol, statins, and antibiotics, can safely and effectively curb the symptoms of major depression, finds a pooled analysis of the available evidence, published online in the Journal of Neurology Neurosurgery & Psychiatry."

more: "And the effects are even stronger when these agents are added on to standard antidepressant treatment, the results show."

yet ....

I did some research on this a couple of days ago when I read the referenced article. Imagine my surprise when this popped up, from 2011:

"Can Aspirin Decrease the Effectiveness of Your Antidepressant?"

"Researchers from Rockefeller University found that anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, aspirin, and naproxen may diminish the effectiveness of antidepressant medications called SSRI's or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Some popular name brand SSRI's include Celexa, Lexapro, Prozac, Paxil, and Zoloft.

Specifically the scientists found that the success rate of antidepressant effectiveness was 54% for those who did not take any anti-inflammatory medications. This rate plummeted to approximately 40 percent for those patients who were taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, such as aspirin or ibuprofen."

935 Good Morning ONT Morons; today is Thursday, October 31, 2019, Halloween. On this day in 1913 the Lincoln Highway was dedicated. It was the first the first automobile highway across United States. It was a big deal even when I was in grammar school back in the 50s even though no actual new roads were built. The Lincoln Highway was actually a designated route using existing roads. The only thing 'new' was the signs. Since the advent of the superhighway system in the 50s it has become a piece of old American folklore. But I am told you can still see road signs for it along the original route.

There are still some fundamentalist congregations out there who refuse to celebrate Halloween because it is 'The Devil's Holiday'. I know of one like that but I will not call out any names. Halloween celebrations were actually banned in early NE and in some other parts of the colonies for this reason. However, with the flood of Irish immigrants due to the potato famine this kind of thing has largely died out.

960 "I surprised the amenities at an AF base were not be better than at a Navy base."

Oceana Inn is the converted Bachelor Officers Quarters.

So...a real suite.

Wright-Pat is converted Enlisted barracks, with two single person rooms sharing a Jack-and Jill bathroom, with no bed in one room, and minimal furnishings making up a suite.

But overall, I was surprised at the feel of 'Used to be great, now not-so-much' there.

Still glad we made the trip to the museum though.

Ace covered that yesterday. The guy is hired by the family so it kind of falls into a situation like an "impartial" investigator hired by NBC to look into their sex abuse. The family wants to claim he was murdered so the ME is gonna try to interpret things that way for them. It's based on the hyoid bone being fractured but apparently that actually isn't uncommon when people older than sixty hang themselves.

975 935 Good Morning ONT Morons; today is Thursday, October 31, 2019, Halloween. On this day in 1913 the Lincoln Highway was dedicated. It was the first the first automobile highway across United States. It was a big deal even when I was in grammar school back in the 50s even though no actual new roads were built. The Lincoln Highway was actually a designated route using existing roads. The only thing 'new' was the signs. Since the advent of the superhighway system in the 50s it has become a piece of old American folklore. But I am told you can still see road signs for it along the original route.


Posted by: Vic at October 31, 2019 06:26 AM (mpXpK

It is called 'old US 30' in my neck of the woods. I live a few miles from it. There were concrete markers with some kind of medallion with a bust of Lincoln on it until about 12 years ago. These were replaced with signage.

Remember that they didn't just switch over to Facebook comments though. They also insulted their commenters at the same time basically telling them to fuck off. So why would you want to stick around after Ed and Allah told you they hated all you smelly commenters and are glad that you won't follow them to Facebook. Probably would have kept more if they had been " we understand some don't want to use Facebook but we do hope many of you will continue to come and be a great part of our commenting community."

I was using AdBlock Plus. They "play nice" and don't do do any such anti-anti-adblock stuff (they consider it unethical to do such tricks).

MSDNC says CA fires are due to fake Global Warming. Someone should ask why then did local tribes in early CA talk about fires? And then ask them where their 'proof' of AGW is when recorded temperatures are dropping?

Truly impressive: a group of people that claim to be so in tune with the erf having zero knowledge of ecology and ecosystems and fundamental biology. Most conifers in N. America have serotinous cones, ie, they FRIGGIN REQUIRE FIRE to reproduce. See 'lodgepole pine' as an example.

998 I am convinced that public education in the US is a completely failed system.

We build massive structures that are used about 50% of the time. No commercial entity would or could ever fund a building that is will never ever offer any return on investment.

In every other public benefit offering we pay funds to the person or family to let them decide how to obtain services.

The entire process sounds like a Soviet program of the 1930s. We use local law enforcement to collect taxes to build buildings and then use the same local law enforcement to round up children to be force to go to those buildings.

1023 >> Seems to block most ads.

Blocking the ads wasn't the problem -- Adblock plus did that fine. The trouble is they're running scripts and other methods to detect if you're running an adblocker.

If you are, they refuse to load the page unless you disable the adblocker. Until yesterday, my response to that was usually just "fuck you, then" and off I go.

But the Daily Mail started that a day or two ago, and I can't be deprived of the T&A sidebar. I had to do something.

Nano Defender is that something. It "defuses" the detection scripts and fools them into thinking the ads are being displayed when they aren't.

1043 When it comes to Halloween, our communitie's Wine Moms and Soccer Dads have taken the whole idea of kids having fun, and made it into their own personal 'Refuse to grow up' experience.

Sounds a bit extreme, couldn't she just lay them off. Plus, what do you think: breadknife, machete or fingernails?

Begin and end every broadcast with "Attention Snopes. This is all parody. Only humorless unfunny scolds would ever think otherwise and would feel the need to fact check these obvious jokes."

1050 I'm behind the curve. I just learned that the photo-dog meme was started
by Ben Shapiro and his "partner" Jeremy Boreing. I suspect that they
did it with dual purpose of punking media and embarrassing Trump. A
twofer. I know Boreing from Hollywood. Another classic cuck.

And I don't think wearing a uniform and earning combat awards means you will never lie.



Posted by: Gref at October 30, 2019 10:16 PM (AMIL/)



Benedict Arnold was a patriotic uniform wearing combat hero until one day he decided he wasn't!

Posted by: Commissar Hrothgar
Arnold was loyal to the Crown. He probably felt justified and patriotic. Washington and the rest were considered traitors at the time by the empire and if they had lost, they'd have been forever considered traitors.

The same might apply to the Deep State plotters who thankfully failed and will probably and rightfully be generally considered traitors and seditionists going forward when the smoke clears from Barr, Horowitz and Durham. Some of us are ahead of the curve.

The winners get history homework.
