THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

I claim that the Democratic party embraces within its filthy arms the worst elements in American society. I claim that every enemy that this Government has had for twenty years has been and is a Democrat . . . every State that has seceded from this Union was a Democratic State . . . The man that shot Lincoln was a Democrat. And every man that was glad of it was a Democrat. Robert Ingersoll, 1876
H/T redc1c4


Quote II

"We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was. Most of all, we remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause." Ronald Reagan


Quote III

"The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here." Abraham Lincoln


Quote IV

You people… love our way of life, love our milk and honey. At least you could pay a couple of bucks for poppies or something like that. These guys paid for your way of life that you enjoy in Canada. Don Cherry


Quote V

“Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted, we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness,” Chesa Boudin

The University of Virginia is a hopeless cause. Obviously it is not administered by any adults with a spine and common sense.

The University of Virginia is clamoring for more safe spaces, locations on campus where individuals and identity groups can “feel validated and…build community.” In an atmosphere like that, imagine how disturbing the thought of holding a Veterans Day observance must be. Especially one that involves gunfire.

That could have caused some of UVA’s less hearty undergrads to run for the nearest cry closet. But don’t worry, Cavaliers, because this year’s 21-gun salute has been eliminated from the Veterans Day ceremony. Because gun violence.

Of course it is. Internet access should be free because it is a human right or something.

Free internet access must be considered as a human right, as people unable to get online -- particularly in developing countries -- lack meaningful ways to influence the global players shaping their everyday lives, according to a new study.

As political engagement increasingly takes place online, basic freedoms that many take for granted including free expression, freedom of information and freedom of assembly are undermined if some citizens have access to the internet and others do not.

New research reveals that the internet could be a key way of protecting other basic human rights such as life, liberty, and freedom from torture -- a means of enabling billions of people to lead 'minimally decent lives'.

Quit using your child as a prop. You dumb b*tch.

A mum's post has gone viral after she shared a photo of her son holding a sign saying "Men Have Periods Too" in order to promote inclusivity.

Milly Bhaskara has amassed thousands of followers on Instagram through her posts that promote self-love, body acceptance and mental health awareness and her latest post features her son Eli.

The sign held up by the four-year-old says: "Some men have periods to. If I can get it so can you."

Milly, who lives in Hull, explains in her caption why she has made the post.

She said: "Some men have periods.. Some non-binary people have periods. Some women have periods.

Men don't have periods. PERIOD.

Vaping has been under scrutiny the past couple of months. It looks like the manufacturers are not responsible for the lung ailments. surrounding vaping.

All 29 samples of lung fluids tested from vaping device users with severe lung injuries contained the oily additive vitamin E acetate, according to data published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Friday.

“These new findings are significant,” Anne Schuchat, CDC principal deputy director, told reporters in a press conference. It is the first time that a potentially toxic substance has been found directly at the site of injury in the lungs of vaping device users.

The severe lung injuries have puzzled health officials for months as a nationwide outbreak of the vaping-related illnesses erupted. Health officials now refer to the condition as EVALI, or “e-cigarette, or vaping, product use–associated lung injury.”
As of November 5, the CDC has tallied 2,051 confirmed and probable EVALI cases in 49 states, the District of Columbia, and the US Virgin Islands. Of those cases, 39 were fatal from 24 states and the District of Columbia.

Despite ongoing federal and state investigations into the cases, the cause or causes of the injuries have been elusive. So far, investigators have determined that most cases appear to be associated with the use of vaping products containing tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana. Many of the injured also reported using counterfeit or black-market products containing THC, notably those marketed as "Dank Vapes."

The new data paints a more damning picture for the oil. For the study, health investigators collected bronchoalveolar lavage fluid samples—that is fluid flushed into and then recollected from the lung through a tube inserted into the mouth or nose. Between August and October of 2019, doctors in 10 states collected samples from 29 EVALI patients, two of whom had died.
Officials tested the samples for a variety of substances, including mineral oils, plant oils, diluent terpenes, cannabinoids, and nicotine, as well as a common component of lung secretions.

Vitamin E acetate was the only substance tested for that showed up in all 29 samples. THC was found in 23 of 28 samples tested, and nicotine was found in 16 of 26 samples. But results for the other substances were all below the level of detection.


Based on these data from 29 patients, it appears that vitamin E acetate is associated with EVALI; however, it is possible that more than one compound or ingredient could be a cause of lung injury, and evidence is not yet sufficient to rule out contribution of other toxicants to EVALI.

Until more data is available, the agency advised vape users against using products containing vitamin E acetate as well as those containing THC, particularly if they’re from “informal” sources.


Informal sources? Why not call a spade a spade?

At least when the Communists and Fascists stole your property they were upfront and honest about it.

An 83-year-old retired engineer in Michigan underpaid his property taxes by $8.41. In response, Oakland County seized his property, auctioned it off to settle the debt, and pocketed nearly $24,500 in excess revenue from the sale.

Under Michigan law, it was all legal. And hardly uncommon.

Uri Rafaeli, who lost his property and all the equity associated with it, is just one of thousands of people to be victimized by Michigan's uniquely aggressive property tax statute. The law, passed in 1999 in an attempt to accelerate the rehabilitation of abandoned properties, empowers county treasurers to act as debt collectors. In the process, it creates a perverse incentive by allowing treasurers' offices to retain excess revenue raised by seizing and selling properties with delinquent taxes—even when the amount owed is miniscule, and even when the homes aren't abandoned or blighted at all.


There is a special place in Hell for the officials of Oakland County.

Another brick and mortar venture for Amazon.

Amazon on Monday said it plans to open its first new brand of grocery store in California next year, as it amps up its ambitious push to become a bigger name in food.

"Amazon is opening a grocery store in Woodland Hills in 2020," an Amazon spokesperson confirmed to CNET on Monday morning, soon after the company published four new jobs postings for the location. Woodland Hills is a neighborhood in Los Angeles.

The store will be different from Amazon-owned Whole Foods, the company said. It didn't say whether it will open more of these locations, what its selection or pricing will be, or what the brand name is. But in the jobs postings, the company described the Woodland Hills location as "Amazon's first grocery store," suggesting that it will have the Amazon brand name and that the company could expand to multiple sites.

Chilly reception for vets on college campuses.

‘But don’t you ever feel like a sucker for serving?”

A fellow military veteran asked me this question a couple of years ago, when I was a senior at Yale. Like me, he had recently completed his service and was studying at a top university.

He said he was mystified, observing that the predominantly working- and middle-class people in the military swear an oath to defend with their lives the U.S. Constitution, including the First and Second amendments. Meanwhile, affluent college students regularly trash the First and seek to dismantle the Second. Are veterans being duped, he questioned, into believing they are upholding American values while the richest kids in the world—the ones being groomed for success and power—try to undermine them?

While we are on the neighborhood topic: Don't you hate it when your neighbors install and activate porch cams?

he first time Ganave Fairley got busted for stealing a neighbor’s Amazon package, she was just another porch thief unlucky to be caught on tape. In August 2016, a 30-something product marketing manager at Google, expecting some deliveries, got an iPhone ping from his porch surveillance camera as it recorded a black woman in a neon hoodie plucking some bundles off his San Francisco stoop. After arriving home that afternoon, the Googler got in his Subaru Impreza to hunt for any remnants strewn around the streets of his Potrero Hill neighborhood. Instead, he spotted Fairley herself, boarding a city bus, which he trailed while dialing 911. Minutes later, he watched responding police officers pull their cruiser in front of the bus and escort her off. The Googler, sitting nearby in his car, played the Nest Cam tape for them—Yep, it’s her—and the police pulled a $107.66 Apple Magic Keyboard from Fairley’s purse and black tar heroin from her coin pocket. The officers wrote Fairley a ticket with a court date a month later. “I thought it was just a ticket, and that was it,” Fairley said.

Keep in mind folks it is not her fault.

Fairley is now 38, with close-cropped hair styled in braids. Among the family members’ names tattooed on her neck, back, and arm are those of her parents, next to praying hands; Fairley said she has forgiven them for her chaotic early years in Potrero, when they were addicted to drugs and she witnessed abuse. (She told me she prefers not to talk about the painful particulars.) When Fairley was 5 years old, social workers whisked her and her siblings to a great-aunt’s, where she told me she had a sheltered childhood: therapy, church, road trips to Yosemite. In middle school, she started flourishing at basketball and earned a scholarship to a Catholic high school. But a knee injury shut down the tuition aid, she said, and a transfer to public school introduced her to a rough crowd. At 19, Fairley came out as gay and, more shocking to both her and her family, pregnant.


Sometimes I do see the value of Sharia law.

Until I started prepping tonight's ONT I had never heard of 22 year old Freddie Bentley. What a wasted space of cells. He gives the term "Special Snowflake" more meaning.

Freddie Bentley is a British reality television celebrity who is mainly known for his appearance on the reality game show “The Circle” and for his Instagram feed.

He has recently come under fire online after appearing on the TV show Good Morning Britain and arguing an unpopular opinion.

In the piece on GMB, Bentley states that children should not have to learn about WW2. In his opinion, too much time is spent on the subject. He is concerned that the emphasis on the destruction and killing of war is too much for young minds.


It is past time these individuals grow up.

Last week we poked fun of Backcountry.com for suing everyone with Backcountry in their name. It appears they are over their petty temper tantrum.

No more lawsuits, no more lawyers. In an interview with GearJunkie, Backcountry CEO Jonathan Nielsen reaffirmed the company made a mistake and is committed to meaningful action.

In the wake of swirling controversy and a cooly received apology, Backcountry.com CEO Jonathan Nielsen outlined what the company has done to start the process of “bringing the outdoor community back together.”

Nielsen told GearJunkie that Backcountry “severed ties” with IPLA Legal Advisors, the law firm that had been serving on behalf of Backcountry in its now-infamous trademark litigation against other brands’ use of the word “backcountry.”

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For You TM OMG THESE THINGS CAN KILL YOU!

Everyday plastic kitchen items like spoons, spatulas and whisks might be damaging your liver or thyroid, scientists have said.

They say the plastic untensils produce harmful toxic byproducts that can get into food when they are used at high temperatures and may be poisonous.

The toxic byproducts, known as oligomers, are formed unintentionally during plastic production and because they are so small, humans may be ingesting them without knowing.

Scientists from the German Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) are warning people to keep contact with food as brief as possible when using plastic utensils in cooking – especially at temperatures above 70°C.

The BfR, an independent group that advises the government on food, chemical and product safety, studied oligomers from two different molecules which are mainly used to make kitchen utensils, including PA 6 and PA 6,6.

Taking information from a study conducted between 2016 and 2017, the scientists looked at how PA oligomers from spoons and spatulas get into food and what impact this has on health.

Leaving your child with a babysitter fine. At a haunted house, alone? Genius Award Winner.

An ex-con whose rap sheep overflows with felonies left his five-year-old daughter by herself at a Florida haunted house on Halloween night, according to cops who arrested him for child neglect.

As detailed in a probable cause affidavit, Charles Shawntay Jones, 35, dropped the child off at a haunted house in Brevard County Thursday evening and “never attempted to go back to the aforementioned haunted house.”

Police were summoned to the haunted house after the girl was found unsupervised there. The scared child, cops say, was cared for by a witness while others sought to locate adults responsible for her.

Cops subsequently received a phone call from Jones, who agreed to meet with them at a local precinct. Investigators estimated that Jones left the girl “unattended, with no reasonable effort to provide for her care for a minimum of two-and-a-half hours.”

Would you leave your home country to fight Commies, not academicians but honest to God Commies? Would you risk your life to save co workers?Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A DAY TO BE PROUD OF RICK RESCORLA

Yesterday President Trump awarded a posthumous Presidential Citizens Medal to Rick Rescorla. Rescorla’s beloved wife, Susan, and his two children were on hand. The White House tweeted out several notes on the event including a live stream of the 17-minute ceremony. I have embedded the C-SPAN video below. FOX News reports on the award and related White House ceremony here.

Rescorla was preeminently a hero of 9/11. We recall him annually on 9/11 in “A day to be proud.” As President Trump noted in his remarks, however, Rescorla was also a hero of the Vietnam war. Indeed, it was the war that made Rescorla an American; he was a British native who emigrated to the United States to enlist in the Army and fight the Communists in Vietnam.

In Vietnam, Rescorla served as an infantry platoon officer. He led his men in the harrowing combat recounted in Harold Moore and Joseph Galloway’s We Were Soldiers Once…And Young. Rescorla’s recollections contribute to key parts of the narrative.

36 For a class earlier this semester, I had my students write a paper evaluating the Vietnam War. One of the papers I got had among its sources a website that was pure New Left boilerplate, denouncing the war as imperialist colonizing, blah blah blah. But he also claimed that it was a total myth that soldiers had been treated badly by the hippies on their return--basically, "if veterans remember it that way, then fine, but the fact is there are no verified cases of anyone in the peace movement disrespecting soldiers." Or words to that effect.

It's amazing how many blue city liberals who cheer announcements that the DA will no longer jail people for "nonviolent" crimes can't figure out that that means that basically nothing will happen to people who steal their car, steal their expensive bike, or rob their house.

GLAAD calls for 20% of primetime TV series characters to be LGBT by 2025

According to them, just over 10% of present characters are QWERTY, but they want that doubled.

Except

"A massive 2017 Gallup survey of 340,604 U.S. adults found that 4.5% of the population identifies as LGBT. This means that presently, LGBT characters are overrepresented on television by 227%."

They want to double that

Lots of camaraderie, lots of food, and especially lots of Oedipus' Very Special Bloody Marys, which start with "a slice of bacon, a chunk of medium-rare beef, shrimp, some smoked cheeses, pepperoncinis, olives, and whatever else you can fit on the skewer"...and then conclude with "oh, and make a really spicy bloody mary fit around this."

Great weekend, we used to get out and to an Appalachian Trail hike, but some of em are getting a little portlier than ole' Oedipus is, so, whatever...it's just about hanging with your brothers.

Best Veteran's Day weekend ever. Got to see a buddy I haven't seen in a quarter-century.

116 i was in for the First! Gulf War, and my unit should have gone, but the unit leadershit decided being deployed would be icky, and possibly even remotely dangers (we were an Evac Hospital, so it's not like we'd be on the front lines) and made the unit non-deployable.

how did they do that?

we drilled the weekend after Desert Shield was announced. we all figured we were going, since we had just trained on, and received, the latest medical gear (DEPMEDS) but we were told, naw we ain't going anywhere.

we all scratched our heads, because it didn't track with reality.

the next month, it became clear what the plan was: each platoon of enlisted swine were moved over one: 1st, became 2nd, etc, and 7th became 1st.

no one was MOSQ, and so the unit was no longer deployable. (LO: speel check wants to make that into deplorable)

long story short, that unit was one of the very first here in #Failifornia to be eliminated in the great "peace dividend" draw down, and the swine who'd been featherbedding it there for years, and who pulled the above bullshit couldn't understand why they were cut.

125 The harder thing was explaining why the frogs running out of the bombed embassy were strafed.

Churchill had the right idea at Mers-el-Kebir in Algeria, two weeks after the French had surrendered in Metropolitan France.
Most of the French battle fleet was there. Churchill was worried that the fleet would be taken over by the Germans, so a British battle fleet appeared, and the French were given three options: 1) scuttle the fleet, 2) sail the fleet to England, or 3) sail the fleet to a French colony in the Caribbean, where the United States would keep an eye on it.

The French refused all three choices, and the British sank or damaged most of the fleet.

To be fair, with a minimum of two non-English languages (arabic and spanish) mandated to have a translator in every classroom, it sort of decreases the time available to teach a primary official language, especially when the definitions in even the English version change daily!

A lot of "progressive" organizations will no longer hire straight white males.

If the Left wins, I fully expect that refusing to engage in homosexual acts will eventually be regarded as discrimination - as has been forecast in Kurt Schlichter's novels. We are already starting to see that happen in certain quarters.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at November 11, 2019 10:38 PM (f1Vqw)


Cats will fight other cats, but possums are another thing all together.
They are big enough to be dangerous and generally they are just passive.

I had a young one get ttrapped in the house and it lived under my sofa for a week or so until I finally figured out it was there *urgh* and shooed it out.
Damned three cats didn't raise a fuss at all, but the big tom was kind of weirded out about it, in retrospect.

Now, I have seen a young possum chase off a mostly adult racoon, so they can be pretty scary.

Had a similar problem with my 12 year old car. Apparently it has 30 different computers and all it takes is one faulty one to wake up the others. The battery would drain flat in a few days.

Took a few weeks for the dealer to track down the issue because they had to isolate each one in turn and then give every other one time to go to sleep.

Solved now but it was a head scratcher.

194 Ladyl. Two months ago, I made a trip up to the Boston area. Dined at Davio's Northern Italian Steakhouse, on Dallas St., among other notable excursions. Expensive? Of course! But worth it. OMG, so very worth it.

But while lodging at Hyannis, on Cape Cod, drove the day trip out to Provincetown, at the very end of the Cape.

Dear God, it was the gayest place on the planet.

The Boiling Pot is the traditional lobster restaurant there. Dined, accordingly. Got an ice cream cone at another local vendor.

Then got the hell out of there, with the promptness lever dialed up to "11".

You know how it is known that a local Muslim population becomes aggressive at 10%, and on the attack at 20%?

Well, the gays there in Provincetown are at something around 50% or more, and they're at the Sodom and Gomorrah level of "we WILL 'know' you."

It is only that they love tourist dollars ONLY a bit more than the consumption of their own lusts, that allows one such as myself to escape there, unscathed.

I've joked about using NYC or D.C. for unscheduled nuclear tests.

Of Provincetown, I am most assuredly, not joking.

Not to be really dark, but I have listened to an interview and read reports about young women being roofied and raped.

It had some humor, one woman said her rapist was so incompetent he didn't use enough and she woke up in the middle of it and in retrospect, if he had been slightly better she would have been only half as screwed up as she was.

The one that was trapped in my house was tempted in by cat kibble and ate sparingly. It also only pooped and peed in one spot which was a relief when I found it.

One fall at night I kept hearing the dry grass rustle and I went and looked and saw a possum dragging of a bundle of grass wrapped in its tail, I suspect it was making a winter burrow in my blackberry thicket.

219 but it's a bit hard to believe that 1 in 20 Americans are Homosexual

When the AIDS epidemic started, the New York department of public health was surprised that AIDS wasn't spreading faster in New York. After all, they knew how infectious AIDS was, had estimates of how many homosexuals there were in New York, and models that predicted infectious spread, given that data.

It turned out that they were dramatically overestimating the number of active homosexuals in New York.

If the survey question was : "Have you engaged in a homosexual act in the last month?", you would get much, much lower estimates of homosexuality.

I realized recently that my best friend's adult son is probably gay. He is gorgeous, lives in San Francisco, and has been " dating" a young woman for 7 years whom he refuses to introduce to his mother.

Ace, getting slightly mcJudgeyfaced. lol. Funny shit.

I'm glad to see the investigators are closing in on the real vape problem. Most nicotine vape products use glycerin as the carrier, and it is water soluble/miscible.

And it has been used for decades in cigarettes to make them self-extinguish when unpuffed on.

Glycerin makes a terrible carrier for THC, which is oil soluble. This is why you can test positive for THC weeks or months after chronic use; a portion of it dissolves in your body's fat, and is slowly released into your bloodstream from there, even after you stop using it.

Now enters vitamin E acetate, an oil, which will dissolve and carry THC in vaping products. And destroy your lungs when inhaled as vapor, apparently.

I always noticed when I smoked, my own brand- that I was used to- would seems smooth as hell. You bum a cigarette off a buddy because you ran out or whatever that was a different brand- that shit was harsh as hell.

Maybe not to the same extent, but I find a similar case with certain flavors in E-juice.

280 It's nice and all that Robert Ingersoll was against Democrats.
I am surprised that no one recognized him as "The Great Atheist."


In his day, one end of the Republican spectrum was all "free thinkers," and the Dems were the party of traditional faith. Remember the line given to William Jennings Bryan in the script of "Inherit The Wind," about being more concerned with the Rock of Ages than with the ages of rocks? That is the kind of dialogue people used to engage in on the subject.

289 Yep. Assuming you don't have any self-respect, you can make this work.

In fields like academics, if you are a white male, and claim to be homosexual, that is a huge advantage in getting hired. If you claim to be transsexual, that is an enormous advantage in getting hired.

My college had a presidential vacancy, and the head of the search committee expressed extreme embarrassment that all prior presidents in the college's long history had been white, male, and (assumedly) heterosexual. He made it clear that that wouldn't happen again.

I posted a comment saying that if a white male applied for the job, the least he could do would be to feign homosexuality. That got censored.

The college ended up hiring a white lesbian.

309 Up until about 1969-70, documentaries about Provincetown still used certain euphemisms about "Unique individuals" and those who "dared to be different." We didn't have the term "lifestyle" back then.

So when my buddy and I were out discovering the East after high school, we figured the Cape was worth checking out. I will admit, Greenwich Village in those days was what a straight guy would call disappointing, too.
At any rate, Provincetown didn't become majority-ghey in just the last few seasons. It was very obviously "that way" 50 years ago. Somehow I managed to avoid a voyage of discovery to Fire Island.

We stopped afterwards to get a bite to eat at a local restaurant and a couple of veterans came in and sat down. Before I could do it, a guy at the next table bought them each a drink.On our way out, we put a twenty on their table to help pay for their meal and thanked them for their service. I hope many veterans were treated to random acts of kindness today.

332 Islamic Jihad, at the behest of Iran, has been occasionally firing rockets into Israel.

So, Israel just killed an Islamic Jihad leader, and Islamic Jihad is now volleying rockets into Israel.

One detail:

Senior military officials says they managed to target the specific room where Baha Abu al-Ata, a senior Islamic Jihad leader was sleeping, and did not destroy the entire building, Israel radio reports.

Why, the Israelis are just like the Nazis! /s

I'm still shooting 16" diameter steel pistol targets at 130 yards. Standing, double action revolver.

Those "clangs" you hear aren't the results of shooting by braille.

That said, the 500 yd. 10" steel targets at Weasel's rifle clinic proved elusive. That's what I get for trying to shoot with someone else's rifle, with a MilDot scope.

My own gear arrives for next year, with Nightforce MOA glass mounted atop, therewith.

No promises. But one does tend to shoot better when behind a familiar rifle and scope.

Back to the primary topic though.

390 Folks, for what it's worth.

The 'ettes at a Tx Mo Meet are beyond compare.

Married, single, widowed, "hopeful", it matters not.

There is more natural beauty there of all ages, regardless of height, short, wide, narrow, tall or odd, than you can possibly comprehend.

Unless that is, that you are THERE.

There is so much beauty in grace, and so much grace to be found at this august event.

I daresay that a single man would be overwhelmed, and reduced to a speechless, stammering fool, at best.

I was, and I'm not even particularly "single". (yes, I behaved)

Posted by: westminsterdogshow at November 12, 2019 12:12 AM (/UQ/R)

A little frustrating. I don't want a female officiant, because apparently I'm sexist. They just don't feel "real." But the ones I've found online "locally" are all women.I want something relaxed and more on the informal side, so standard wedding venues aren't right. It's going to be a small gathering - fewer than 3 dozen, I would think. Maybe 2 dozen.
Anyway, I'm thinking maybe we should wait until the house is built, then I'll have more control. But we don't even have a contractor yet. <nudges Publius>

Breaking News really doesn't mean much in our world of 24-7 news coverage. Now back in the day when a program was interrupted for a breaking story it was usually worth it. Now 1/2 inch of snowfall qualifies as breaking news and requires at least 2 reporters live on the scene.

Nope. Formaldehyde is an aldehyde and methylene glycol is a diol. The only real thing they have in common is a single carbon atom.


They're about as different as ethanol (booze) and acetic acid (vinegar), both with two carbons, or propane and isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol, both with three.

Of course it's your preference, but have you ever had a female officiant for anything? I attended services for a deceased friend led by a female rabbi and she was amazing. Couldn't have asked for a more respectful, authoritative type to send my friend off.

Starting in the late '50s, our spiffy little development began filling up with young families escaping Philadelphia and Camden. The guys took advantage of the G.I. Bill and were the first in their families to move out to the suburbs. It was a simple matter-of-fact that our fathers and uncles were either WW II vets or Korean vets.

Some years ago, there was a guy here in Alaska who'd been up in front of the local magistrate many, many times. When he and his lucky bride got married, he reflexively responded to the "do you take this woman" question with "Guilty, Your Honor."

I am of an age -- 29, to be exact -- that many of my friends have had to deal with older relatives suffering from the disease.

I've told my kids to just shoot me if I get to that point, then tell the nice officer they didn't realize the gun was loaded and they have no idea how I got a hold of it. Failing that, just stand me up in the driveway and run over me a couple of times, then tell the nice officer they thought I was safe in the house, got out, and must have managed to get into their blind spot. I've seen dementia up close and personal, and I don't want to put myself or my kids through it.

Formaldehyde, also known as methylene glycol: H2CO

Now the former is used in cosmetics, nail polish for one. Formaldehyde is not (other than it keeps RBG daisy fresh).

541 Thanks guys and gals, I'll start looking for a support group. A few of my kids live in state, but they have their lives to live too. I am blessed with wonderful friends and neighbors who offer to help all the time. Hubby is happiest with me by his side though.

My dad was in the Marines, and weird, but I always got the feeling that he didn't want military life for his kids -- he'd done that so we wouldn't have to. My mom was different -- wanted everyone to get into the military -- and she got my niece into the Corps by God!

My dad was approached a few times in his career to join the submariners.

He too was all aboard the Nope train.

He spent his career on destroyers and cruisers, except for a brief stint as a river rat in one of his tours of 'Nam.

He was a signalman. Go figure.

My first MOS was signal. 31M10 (Multichannel communications systems operator).

544 Jay Guevara is the Horde go-to guy for chemical names, but I believe the term "methylene" is not considered to be good practice in an academic lab. The "ene" suffix is used for hydrocarbons that have one or more double bonds between carbons in the chain. Since methyl compounds have but one carbon, they cannot have a double bond between carbons.

But "methylene" is commonly used in industry.

Heh. My dad joined the Navy in 1940 because he heard they were about to reinstate the draft. I'm sure he heard plenty of horror stories about WWI trench warfare and didn't want any part of it.

So he joined the Navy, figuring that we were protected by two oceans. Two years later he had his ship shot out from under him at Coral Sea. You never can tell.

Thanks, Debby. Today was a pretty good day. I had an appointment with my primary care physician. She used to have an office near me, but it closed a few years ago and she joined another practice some distance away. I've been thinking that I should find a closer PCP.

Today she said that if I couldn't make it to an appointment, she would come and see me. Things like that are why I've kept seeing her.

562 So, I took apart a dead Samsung LCD TV this evening. It had 3 LED strips for its back lighting. Got the strips out of the cabinet, and hooked them up to a variable-voltage power supply. Two of the strips, once I cranked the voltage up to about 21 volts, had about half the LED's come up bright. The third strip was totally dead. I connected probes to the power supply leads, and fed about ten volts to each LED in turn. Most of them would blink once, and short, and the current meter on the power supply would peg out. Two of them lit brilliantly, and one was open circuit.

I guess I will try to salvage the good LED's, and make some sort of lamp out of them.

578 This is really freaky and weird.

I just watched a Dutch thriller film called "App" from 2013 about an evil iPhone app that takes over some chick's phone and starts ruining her life and the life of everyone around her:

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2536436/?ref_=tt_urv

Turns out the app is a rogue AI program that reached self-awareness and was able to seize control not only of her phone but of any electronics nearby, causing them to go haywire and/or kill humans, etc. etc.

Pretty decent thriller actually. But that's not the freaky part.

In the final scene, after all the action is over and she has destroyed all the phones that had the app/virus/AI on them, and you think the world is safe from the evil software, our heroine gets on an airplane to go on a much-needed vacation, and in the final moment of the film the camera pans over the cockpit door and shows clearly the words "Boeing 737" and then it zooms in on the pilot's control module -- and the evil app appears on it! And you realize then that the out-of-control software is going to seize control of the Boeing 737 and make it crash.

This movie, let me remind you, came out in 2013 -- six years BEFORE this EXACT thing happened in real real with the Boeing 737 Max.

I have never seen a move that was so specifically, precisely prophetic. Incredible.

Because the movie is not that well-known, no one has ever noticed this amazing "coincidence." Until now, that is!

Spooky! How could the filmmakers have "guessed" that six years in the future Boeing 737s would crash due to new software taking control of the plane? Amazing.

The closest station is about 70 minutes away, but there is a nice gun store on the way. So I will probably get a 5 gallon can plus a full tank for the car. The snowblower is fuel injected, so it's probably overkill, but it was expensive, so better safe than sorry.

I feel real. At least last I checked I was. I don't think you're sexist for wanting a male clergy. If you grew up in a tradition that has male clergy that is going to be what you're accustomed to. However, if you're going online for a "rent an officiant" they tend to most be women, I believe.

He and others also stated that there was.........."no pressure" put on him to investigate Sleepy Joe Biden even though, as President, I have an "obligation" to look into corruption, and Biden's actions, on tape, about firing the prosecutor, and his son's taking millions of dollars, with no knowledge or talent, from a........Ukrainian energy company, and more millions taken from China, and now reports of other companies and countries also giving him big money, are certainly looking very corrupt (to put it mildly!) to me.

"One member of the leadership team suggested they start teaching the Bible to differentiate their church from the surrounding culture and offer something the world cannot offer. The leader was called a bigot and forced to resign."

I saw a claim on CBS Sunday Morning that the transcript was incomplete. I suppose that's the latest line of attack.

Yet, Christine Blasey Ford's testimony was accepted by the Left at face value, as if having been written by the finger of God in tablets of stone.

Yeah, that's not going anywhere either. Five different transcriptions were made by professional shorthand note takers, and they compare notes amongst themselves afterwards. The same system is used for all these calls. This is way past silly, and is delusional. It's like transgenderism in it's ridiculousness gone dangerous.


I wish the Democrats would come to their senses, stop undermining our government, and return to work. But, no.

723 And other ideas. I was thinking about coordination to Senators. Talk to them on, oh, say, loyalty to the Constitution, and drop off a letter at their public support office. We need to tell Senators to be loyal to America and Americans.

Heck, in Texas we lost senator Cornhole a decade ago, and I'm afraid Cruz has also become subject to the typical demon possession that is usual for exposure to Washington D.C.

Cornhole represents every grifter, con and criminal but Texas or We The People, and Cruz no longer "fights" like he promised to do.

743 Democrats are going to spend the next five years shrieking about impeachment every time Trump takes a breath. With any luck to speak of, they have so over reached themselves, Repubs will keep the presidency, the Senate, and retake the House, putting them in a position to squash the worst of Democratic idiocy. Maybe the House will actually do something useful.

Well they claim it's incomplete because Deep State operatives like Vidman claim that he and others wanted changes made to the transcript to reflect his remembrances of the call.

It's all bullshit.

Note to future GOP Presidents, if there are any, fire everybody, doesn't matter who the previous President was, just fire everybody, bring in your own people and by your own people I mean your own people and not some GOPe wankers and other miscreants like Rex Tillerson or Mike Kelly.

The House had two years to do something and beside tax cuts did very little especially on the critical items of killing Obamacare and building the wall. They were mostly dragged along on Trumps agenda. They should have squashed the Mueller investigation from day one and started their own of the Dems. Things will be no different in 2020 with Trump a lame duck.

The GOP was fully onboard with the efforts to take out the President in both the house and Senate for the first two years, once they lost the house, knowing that the effort to take out the President was largely illegitimate and unfounded, they calculated that their political fortunes would benefit if they eased up on taking out the President.


They are still doing nothing in the Senate, you do have Lindsey Graham flapping his gums about this or that but they are not doing anything to truly defend the President and exact revenge for what the Democrats have done.
