The Quotes of The Day


Quote I


"What it's caused is a number of safety, health and security issues onboard our aircraft, which has led to minor things like animals loose in the cabin to very serious safety issues where untrained animals have attacked flight attendants or other passengers or other legitimate service dogs," Taylor Garland, a spokesperson for the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA


Quote II

“I was living in a nice flat, had a good job and had three cars. I had a lot of savings behind me and I was lucky enough to be very secure. But it was all just ‘stuff’ to me and didn’t really mean anything. So I decided to get rid of the lot and set off with Bandit.”Charlie Hammerton


Quote III

'I think western art has centred on a sexualised version of the female body more than other cultures,'

'I think it's about opening our eyes to it and saying, 'What is this? I this realty soft porn for the elite, dressed up in a classical guise?'. Dame Mary Beard


Quote IV

"It's a gateway to more laddish behaviour and - if it just goes unchecked - it's a signal of a more laddish culture,"Chartered Management Institute head Ann Francke


Quote V

Let me restate this last paragraph: Romney’s highest and best use is babysitting kids. Trump’s best use is smashmouth rugby with Democrats. This is not a hard call. Steven Hayward

Reactionary populism. According to these two politicians, it will tear us apart.

Reactionary populism in its most dangerous form will tear at the very fabric of our society if we do not address the challenge of economic inequality. We see the scourge of authoritarian populist movements across the globe and believe there is a moral and economic imperative to reduce this widening gap.

Our backgrounds could not be more different, but we are motivated by our faiths to tackle this growing problem. One of us is a Republican Catholic representing a very conservative district in Florida and was the U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See from 2005-2008. The other is a Democratic Hindu, representing a very progressive district in California and had a grandfather who spent time in jail as a freedom fighter in Gandhi’s independence movement.


Both of our faiths teach us to care for the poor. Jesus taught us to be radical in our service. Gandhi drew inspiration from Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount and said his goal was to “unify the teaching of the [Bhagavad] Gita and the Sermon on the Mount.” He believed Jesus was one of the world’s greatest teachers.

I don't know much about the Hindu religion. And I'm uncertain how its tenets address this issue. Jesus radical? Love thy neighbor as thyself. Love the Lord thy God with all your heart. Not to radical.

I'm of the belief that politicians have contributed to most of the problems these two congressmen discuss. From student loans to rent control to farm practices, the federal government has its tentacles in every facet of our lives. Time to repeal instead of creating more rules and regs.

How do those all you can eat buffets make money? The first step is to keep Ana Navarro & Jonah Goldberg away.

The economics of all-you-can-eat buffets
Is it possible to out-eat the price you pay for a buffet? How do these places make money? We looked at the dollars and cents behind the meat and potatoes.

Few things epitomize America more than the all-you-can-eat buffet.

For a small fee, you’re granted unencumbered access to a wonderland of gluttony. It is a place where saucy meatballs and egg rolls share the same plate without prejudice, where a tub of chocolate pudding finds a home on the salad bar, where variety and quantity reign supreme.

“The buffet is a celebration of excess,” says Chef Matthew Britt, an assistant professor at the Johnson & Wales College of Culinary Arts. “It exists for those who want it all.”

But one has to wonder: How does an industry that encourages its customers to maximize consumption stay in business?

To find out, we spoke with industry experts, chefs, and buffet owners. As it turns out, it’s harder to “beat” the buffet than you might think.

Cheap shot? Probably, fortunately I don't get paid to care.

China Southern Airlines has balls. Passengers were made to ride with passengers from Wuhan, China.

hina Southern Airlines passengers refused to board a flight when they realised Wuhan residents would be flying with them. The flight from Japan to China was delayed when around 70 passengers needed to be convinced to board the flight. The hostility stemmed from fears that the passengers from Wuhan might have been infected by the deadly coronavirus.

The flight from Nagoya to Shanghai was disrupted when some passengers, identified as residents of Wuhan, were confronted by other passengers. After recognising their accents, the other passengers turned hostile, in an effort to prevent them from boarding the flight.

Reportedly, 70 passengers who live in Shanghai tried to prevent the 16 passengers from Wuhan to board the flight. After a five hour delay, the airline was able to finally convince the protesting passengers. The travellers from Wuhan were finally able to board the flight and fly to Shanghai.

Reactionary populism not enough for you? Let's ban tourism because 'Climate Change'.

Read the piece front to back and you might conclude the entire planet has morphed into one giant, eco-friendly playground, with new nonstop service to Ulaanbaatar and Lima making access easier than ever.

It’s all bullshit, of course. A 2018 study published in the journal Nature Climate Change announced tourism alone—that’s nonessential pleasure travel—is responsible for 8 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions. The traveling public is freaking out. It knows about flight shaming; it loves Greta Thunberg; and it’s ready to bid au revoir to Volvic, Dasani, and plastic straws. But it still wants to sit on a beach in Aruba.


I live in an area that relies on tourism. Small business owners attempting to make a living. Trying to give their children a bright future. The author of this story, Chuck Thompson, can go pound concrete chunks.

The fight against illegality continues to evolve. Albatrosses are being used to find illegal fishing.

No creature knows the sea quite like the albatross.

Boasting wingspans of up to 11 feet—the largest of any bird alive today—these feathered goliaths, native to the Southern Ocean and North Pacific, are built to soar. Gliding at speeds that often exceed 50 miles per hour, they can cover vast swaths of the sea in minutes, all the while scouring the water for bright flickers of fish. Some species are known to spend years at sea without touching down on land, and a few have even been documented circumnavigating the globe.

With their keen eyes and wandering ways, albatrosses are, in a way, the de facto “sentinels of the sea,” says Henri Weimerskirch, a marine ornithologist at the French National Center for Scientific Research.

Las Vegas is a major tourist destination. The city has decided to change its slogan.

Las Vegas is revising its famous "What happens here, stays here" slogan.

The city's new catchphrase, which will be unveiled on Jan. 26 during the Grammy Awards, will be "What happens here, only happens here," according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, which had said earlier this month that it planned to unveil a new slogan on Sunday, didn't immediately return a request for comment.

If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat
If you get too cold, I'll tax the heat
If you take a walk, I'll tax your feet
'Cause I'm the taxman, yeah, I'm the taxman
Don't ask me what I want it for

Well, it seems the Brits aren't as well behaved as they claim. Ordering chicken through bars at a local KFC.

Bouncers on the door of your local takeaway is one thing, but it’s got so bad for staff at a KFC in Birmingham that they now have to serve chicken through metal security wiring. The safety measure was reportedly put in place at the Moorland Avenue branch in Chelmsley Wood after a young woman leapt over the counter to attack a staff member in the kitchen. Photos show chunky metal bars bolted to the ceiling and counter holding five rows of wiring stretched across with gaps just about big enough to pass a family bucket through. More importantly, they are small enough to prevent any potential attacks coming from the other direction.

76 Chat about football or cricket in the workplace should be curtailed, a management body has warned.

Chartered Management Institute head Ann Francke said sports banter can exclude women and lead to laddish behaviour such as chat about sexual conquests.

"A lot of women, in particular, feel left out..."


Oh, poor, poor, blubbery boo-hoos. "Shut up, you, you laddies you!"

But, to be fair, I feel left out when I listen to sports on the BBC, too.

235 The hostility stemmed from fears that the passengers from Wuhan might have been infected by the deadly coronavirus.

Texted with a physician friend of mine in Seattle today about coronavirus.

It is already having local effects - Pike Place Market in Seattle, which is usually bustling at lunchtime, had very few people there today (he sent me a picture). Seattle has had one case of coronavirus, thus far (a guy who flew back from Wuhan).

Germany, Japan, and Taiwan all reported coronavirus cases today in people who had not been to China.

The problem with coronavirus is that you can be asymptomatic for a couple of weeks, so screening people for fever at airports isn't a very useful mechanism for identifying coronavirus cases. With SARS, on the other hand, you were only contagious if you ran a fever, so temperature screening worked very well.

Interesting times...

I need to go back and look to be sure but I think he also proposed that any new law required a super majority (>=67%) of the law writing branch, but only a simple majority (>=50%) of the law cancelling branch was required to end a law!

282 PJW video is so accurate.

I noticed this 15 years ago with a lot of women at work, women saying they wanted to "experience life", as if drinking margaritas in Cozumel was "experiencing life".

A girl I dated in college that I reconnected with later in life used to get furious that I would blow off some outing with her to do things with my daughter.

I once asked what her legacy would be, would the cabana boy from Playa del Carmen be handling her end of life care and funeral arrangements or would it be her brother's kids. I asked her if she would look back wistfully on her Facebook pictures in her declining years, would she always be self-centered narcissist. She drank a 750 of Jim Beam, got obliterated and smacked the shit of me.

Needless to say, we broke up shortly after. She used to text me about 5 or 6 times a year to see "What are you doing?". I eventually blocked her phone number.

Julian wasn't really a Pagan, he was like a sophomore in college dabbling in Paganism. Even that early the memories of how the true pagans did things was fading. His "non-christian paganism" imposed a false hierarchy on the gods and added a clergy that didn't really exist in imitation of the Christian ones. It was doomed even if he had avoided the spear from the Persians and not died in three years of rule, because it was all his idea and set up his own way, out of spite of the existing situation.

321 Jesus radical? Love thy neighbor as thyself. Love the Lord thy God with all your heart. Not to radical.

Jesus was a radical: the worshipers are more important that the priests. Living is more important than ritual. God is more important that the State. In spite of what bribes are offered, Jerusalem is more important than Rome.
Posted by: Kindltot at January 28, 2020 10:46 PM (6rS3m)

Well, aside from Pilate and his guards, that last was not controversial in old Judea, everyone hated the Romans. Some just were more scared that too much trouble would lead to an accounting, that actually did happen in 70 AD and finally under Hadrian. Shows how things change that the radical Christ was more indifferent to the Romans and pacifist, and the Jews were the insurgents that eventually called down the whirlwind on their head and lost their homeland entirely.

324 A friend of mine when I was a kid had a neighbor who built a privacy hedge akin to that. It was aspen. He would cut the tree down to about 5', split and graft, and each season the tree(s)* became wider and denser. It would have taken agent orange and a flamethrower to get through it.

* Aspen stands are technically a single plant.

325 278 YUCK. But I did it, and I can still taste the sumbitches even after meat and dessert.


My mom told me I was deathly allergic to beets. Probably had a bad reaction or something when I was a baby and that freaked her out. So I never had a beet. Ever. And because of that, as you might expect the whole idea of the beet kind of got built up in my mind. I had no idea what they tasted like but assumed they were probably pretty awesome. Bright red, they probably tasted like a mix of cheery and strawberry. I lasted until my forties when one day I thought one tiny little bite isn't going to kill me.

1) No allergy reaction. 2) They taste exactly like dirt in your mouth. There's a lesson there somewhere. Like always listen to your mom.

Was planning a hog hunting trip week after next. Went to the range to work on my shot group and realized that my blood thinner meds from my stint have said "no". Even with the 150 grain .308 rounds from my ar-10.

I. Is. Unhappy. Massive bruise on my shoulder, even using a bath towel folded 3" thick between the stock and my shoulder.

Was treed by these vermin as a wee lad in Louisiana's Natchitoches Parish and have a love/hate relationship with them. I hate the fvcking parasites and love killing them. Right next to coyotes and feral dogs.

Gives me even more reason to exercise, lower the BP, and get off the meds. My long gun is good, but it ain't .22 mag brain shot at 250m on a moving target at night good. That shot group is still at a 8" CEP and likely to improve without serious commitment.

Rome had nothing to do with that - Judea was ruled over by King Herod and after that his uncles and cousins. The closest troops aside from a few units were up in Syria, which is why the revolt got out of hand when it kicked off.

The moneychangers paid the Temple Priests and they pocketed it. That's why he was so annoyed about the situation. Jesus was pretty chill about Rome - "Render unto Caesar" and all that - even if you view that under the assumption that everything belongs to God it is a much milder statement than what he said often about Pharasees, the upper class priests of his own people.

392 Used to frequently take the kids to a local pizza place. They had pinball games and tolerable pizza and a usually-replete salad bar I liked a lot.

One evening we watched an employee working on the salad bar. She had on those plastic gloves, good, fine. Stopped to reach up and adjust the television. Then did something else. Then went back to the salad bar in the same gloves.

A complaint to management elicited no interest.

Never went back.

395 You can live a life of debauchery and sincerely repent on your deathbed. Beats the hell out of the predestination crowd.
Posted by: RickZ at January 28, 2020 10:54 PM (Y8PSl)


True, but can you find redemption when you have spent a lifetime choking away your honor and your faith? Is repenting on your deathbed truly repenting, or hoping one more time a lie will get you what you want?

Can you put aside a lifetime of habits at the last moment? Took me near forever to stop chewing my nails, for example. God will lead you to salvation, but it is your own actions and faith that will take you over the threshold. He can only do so much for you.

Better to start practicing living that just life now, practicing your grip, your stance and your faith, instead of depending on that one last, hurried grab at greased rungs from a position of fear and pain. It is not something you want to hesitate and miss, after all.

410 Actually cobalt blue was relatively inexpensive and common, compared to Lapis Lazuli.

Ultramarine has more red in it and is not as clean looking blue as cobalt when thinned with lead white. It makes a better purple and is cheaper than cobalt in oil paint these days. Cobalt also makes a nice cerulean blue with a little viridian and cadmium yellow light.

I don't believe in free will. Volition, yes, but not free will.

So while people make conscious, deliberate decisions, a whole host of things outside themselves will affect the decision they make.

Hard pass. Not religious nor am I anti-religion (except for pisslam) like so many non-religious assholes. I don't want to ban Bible quotes in courtrooms nor crosses in the public square, e.g.; not that I do it anymore, but a Christmas tree is a Christmas tree and not a holiday tree. In fact, I found it quite humorous the Senate opens their shamwowpeachment with a prayer but school kids can't do that openly in a classroom.

Familial experience with born agains left a rather sour taste. And this coming from a former altar boy. Of course, being raised Catholic (12 years in Catholic schools), according to some Protestants (read: heathens, j/k) Catholics aren't Christians anyway. I was told that, yes I was.

Saute Brussels sprouts and sliced onion in butter for a few minutes then add a half of cup honey, a tbsp of sriracha sauce, some salt and a little flour and cook it on high pressure for 2 minutes.

Nah, it is similar to arguing about cars.

If you liked brussel sprouts you would not be adding onion, butter, honey, sriracha sauce, salt, and flour.

Besides my comment was not so much about whether or not you like something as it is that digging something out of the dirt that is repugnant and of minimal nutritional value and dousing it it delicious things is kind of a waste.

Better off to get rid of the repugnant thing and enjoy the delicious things.

You do not seem to understand Catholicism. It is not determined by whomever sits on the Chair of Peter. The fact that an idiot has taken charge does not change the Truth, nor does the infiltration of homosexuals into the priesthood take one iota from the charge given to Peter.

Agree on the baby cow organ.

This one time, I was at a super high-end steakhouse in Buenos Aires. I was with two other men (wife was in the hospital there, long story), and I wasn't paying. They order the 'parillo mixto', a mixed grill that came on one of those round heaters with a flame in the middle like you see in some Thai/Polynesian restaurants. I didn't recognize anything. So I told them, don't tell me what I'm eating until I ask. So I grab a piece of meat and try it. It was horrible. I asked them what it was. Cow's lung. Never want that again. So I tried another piece of meat. Started eating it and couldn't stop. Between mouthfuls, I asked what it was. Cow's stomach. Found out I love cow's stomach.

I guess the point is our minds have preconceived notions of what we like or don't like and our taste buds react to that. But if one doesn't know what one is eating, the taste buds are on their own and will dictate whether we like it or not.

3) Other MSM are also covering all the Biden family financial bullshit now, instead of defending it ike Fort Knox, as they always have in the past.

A Sherman pulled up to his plane, hatch opened, guy pops up and said "get your ass in here!", so he had his first and only tank ride.

But he stayed with the unit for several weeks. Rode in the weapons carrier, said he was the unit's "champagne" guy. When they would clear or seize a town (this was in Germany), he would head up the scrounging crew looking for booze and goodies.

Eventually a more senior officer came along, said WTF, told him to go back to the rear and report to his squadron. He was back in the air before the surrender.

Tomorrow or whatever morning you wake up and feel the shame. I can talk you down. For a small fee. Just have your credit card handy. Batteries not included. Shipping and handling extra. And for just an extra charge, I can also talk you down in the future. Operators are standing by.

I do also, and based on the track record it will; probably not fast enough to suit some people, however that is also what the history shows. What little *I* know is that the Christian church, in whatever form, is remarkably resilient and enduring like the ocean; and that it rises and falls like the tides, and as much as it is pushed back that is what* makes it stronger.


*The paradox is that Christianity thrives under persecution and wanes under patronage. In the 1960's-1970's-1980's the state churches of western Europe were fading (for example) as the Catholic Church in Poland was waxing.

This guy said he'd done a book on his war experiences. I urged him and his caretaker to look into the Library of Congress Veterans' History Project, as I do with everyone like that (have done quite a few interviews for it myself).

Another guy who happened to be there then hung around and we talked quite a while, his later FIL was a B-17 pilot. He has all his papers, talked with him extensively about his experiences when he was still around. His son even did some interviews. He's definitely going to get things organized to create a file for the FIL with the LOC project.

Let me know when you get out from under your bridge.

Nobody said I or anyone was just fine with what is going on in the Catholic Church. However, after 500 years of Protestants changing things about the Catholic Church, somehow we still haven't reached Nirvana, or whatever the goal of all of that change was. It isn't the Church that needs to change, it is the sin that must be rooted out.

People will still be people, nothing on earth will be perfect, and that is caused by sin. Period. Making changes to that which Jesus founded upon Peter isn't going to eradicate sin, whether it be of me or you or the Pope or some homopredator priest. And here's the news: there is just as much sin outside the Church (some would say more) as inside the Church. Protest whatever problems you think the Church has, and be as Protestant as you like, but don't tell me that you have the answer and that the Church should change. Pretty sure you've been there and done that.

Now, about you being a "fan" of the Church. You aren't, so stop trolling and try a little introspection of your own. And if you really find some sin, well, come on in and try confession. It's good for the soul.

So the P-47 pilot said he didn't bail out, he rode it in to the ground,
wasn't injured - but found himself between the lines - to one side
German armor and troops, to the other American, shooting at each other.



A Sherman pulled up to his plane, hatch opened, guy pops up and said
"get your ass in here!", so he had his first and only tank ride.



But he stayed with the unit for several weeks. Rode in the weapons
carrier, said he was the unit's "champagne" guy. When they would clear
or seize a town (this was in Germany), he would head up the scrounging
crew looking for booze and goodies.



Eventually a more senior officer came along, said WTF, told him to
go back to the rear and report to his squadron. He was back in the air
before the surrender.

There is curently no "Protestant Way" insofar as attacking the RCC. There are only people some with very strong opinions who, IMO sometimes express it badly or could do a better job of expressing our unity in Jesus Christ.-one faith in the risen Jesus Christ and belief in the indwelling Holy Spirit and the Spirit at work in the world. Basically One faith Faith, One Lord, one baptism.
We have too many people on the left who hate Christianity. We'd do best to put on the full armor of God, keep on praying for the church universal and as far as our brothers and sisters in Christ "Make Every effort to keep the unity of spirit through the bond of peace" (Ephesians 4:4)

Listen smart girl, I went to a Catholic university. I have Catholic priests staying in my house for weeks at a time. I have attended more Catholic services in the most recent 20 years than Protestant service.

The most recent Catholic Church I attended had me as a lector and had me as part of their new member recruitment team, and they knew I was Protestant with no intention of becoming Catholic. They had me assisting because the knew I had sincere affection for the Catholic Church. That and they could not get any Catholics to do anything other than take communion and go right back out the door.

Why don't you yank your head out of your ass and quit going after someone that wants the Church to work through its issues by attacking others?

Even better, what are you doing to fix your Church besides suggesting that it is just going through a bit of a rough time as it does for a century here and there and it is going to work itself out?

I can see Trump telling the powers that be to take a hike when they propose debates with Progda talking heads running them.

I could see him saying you pick one, and I get to pick one, or a short list and you pick him/her.


If this were to take place, which person would you like, instead of Candy Crowley or Anderson Cooper?

My short list would be:

Rush Limbaugh
Mollie Hemingway
Laura Ingraham

and Hannity would not be on the list, because he would take 45 seconds to get the question out, and then cut off the candidates mid-sentence.


Who else could be good?

771 Don't know who's still reading this, as the ONT is winding down, but to those fighting depression or other issues that have you contemplating suicide...

First, sorry if I'm presumptuous in bringing up suicide. Sometimes people speak in code, because let's face it: no one likes to talk of such things, or to burden others with such dark subjects, so we dance around the edges, not wanting to address the demon staring us in our faces. I recently lost my son to suicide, so I say: "Fuck that".

Here's the thing: you have people in your life who love you, care about you, and respect you. Losing you will devastate them. Average Son had the Average Family, who naturally loved him. You may not have family that you are close to, but there are others in your life connected to you in ways that you don't know.

You don't know it because depression (or whatever) has blinded you. You only see failure and disappointment. You can't imagine how anyone would really care about you. Even if you think people do care about you, you think you're a burden to them, and of no value.

Average Son had relationships that I never would have guessed the depth of, but which I've learned of since his passing. And it's not just people speaking well of the dead. While he wasn't the easiest friend to have, because of his depression and anxiety, he was nevertheless deeply valued by them. But his illness would not let him see himself the way they saw him. He was, in his mind, a mere burden to them (and us), and they (and we) were better off without him. He saw himself as worthless, so how could anyone else see otherwise?

Well, he was wrong. But I couldn't convince him, so I don't know how much value my words now are. And perhaps (OK, certainly) I'm over-simplifying. But the fact remains: there are people who care about you. Don't be afraid to reach out to them, and to accept any support they can offer.

And, God cares for you too, as do His people. Of course, His people are human people, and each and every one of them is at times an asshole. But among His people you are more likely to find those who are selfless, and who are genuinely concerned for your welfare, than among the population at large.

Sorry if I'm a bit long-winded, and a bit rambling. Contemplating whether I should even hit the "Post" button...

Aw, what the hell...

She's a whackadoodle but she's my sister and I still love her dearly. Now she's alone, and I hope her faith helps her through this. She's a devout Catholic, I'm converted Jew. I'll do my best, but with G*d's help, we'll get there. She's my sister.

You should give the entire thread a read. I was not suggesting I have done anything important, quite the opposite. My comments were a rebuttal of her suggestion that I was a troll or trolling the issue and had some Protestant hate for Catholics or the Catholic Church.

You might find more benefit in suggesting she gain some perspective and get over her Protestant hate.

Here's something I just stumbled on.
(most of you old people are going to know more about
what I'm about to say than I do...)

Remember the episode of The Simpsons with the guy who sounded just like Michael Jackson? The singer in that episode is Kipp Lennon.

Kipp Lennon is one of 11 Lennon children, including the Lennon Sisters (Lawrence Welk). Did you know the dad of the Lennon kids was murdered by a stalker who fantasized himself married to one of the Lennon sisters?

Kipp and his brothers have a band called Venice. They do covers. Maybe more, I dunno.

Which brings me to Skunk Baxter. Jeff Baxter is a well-known guitarist who played with Doobie Brothers, ....other people, I forget.

Anyway, here's Skunk Baxter, Kipp Lennon, and other known musicians playing a beautiful version of Rikki Don't Lose That Number:

805 Video on childless women prompts this post.

Oldest son is 26, as is his longtime lady. We expect them to marry someday. She's a lovely girl. However, she once opined that she's reluctant to bring a child into this world because of ... global warming.

(Wife and younger kids, liberals all, give me the horselaugh because I declare that to be a hoax. I need to find solid evidence for my position.)

My two sons are the only male descendants in the family's fourth generation to bear the family name, a name of which I am overly proud. I hope my boys will carry it on. It's an uncommon surname anyway, and I would hate for it to become even more rare.

Perhaps that will change. I just hope to be around if it does; I didn't become a father until I was 32. In contrast, Dad and I are 25 years apart. I didn't realize until recently how big that seven-year gap is.

Reactionary populism.

One of the authors is Ro Khanna, the US Congressman who succeeded Mike Honda.

Honda did his homework about Khanna, included much of it in his campaign flyers, and defeated Khanna the first time (Honda lost the second time).

The example of Khanna's unfitness for office that stuck with me was Khanna's performance on a Board of Directors (of his HOA, IIRC). Khanna got elected, showed up a few times, then ... The board had to replace him.

In short, Khanna's career seems to have been a series of successful "upward failures".

I think little of Khanna's policies and motivations have to do with Hinduism (maybe Khanna is a good & observant Hindu, maybe not), as the Mahabharata speaks against "ambition" frequently (Yudhisthira is praised for being without ambition and it gets him into heaven), and Khanna is clearly ambitious.

Khanna is more of an Idea Man, but one that does not have to deliver on his ideas; if they fail, not his fault or problem, and not his money.

I get the sense from the article that Khanna is cueing-up a few of the failed policies that India had under Indira Gandhi; a reign of stagnation, failure and Hillary-esque scolding.

Ask them why NASA and NOAA publish "adjusted" data, then delete raw data so that no one can see them.

I suppose you have no idea what I'm talking about, but I'm working on the restoration of liturgy, rather than letting some Protestant decide what constitutes Catholic worship. Unlike your apparently schismatic adventure in small-c catholicism, I'm prayerfully and financially supporting several priestly societies who are developing the Latin worship according tot he 1962 Missal, rather than the watered-down protestant "Mass" in English, ad populum, ad nauseum. I teach catechism to kids and adults, I knit baby clothes for the local pro-life pro-woman organizations, I pray the rosary daily for the intentions of Holy Church, the horde and others, and the list goes on.

So, Skippy, since you feel the need to step into small-c catholic worship and claim you know all about what will fix the Catholic Church, what else have YOU done except antagonize faithful Catholics by telling us how wrong we are? Smart guy.

And that BS excuse about being fair and hearing all the pertinent information is just BS. The house sure as hell didn't want to do that and they've withheld exculpatory testimony, and even lied in front of the Senate during this whole affair.

926 I come from part Swedish Lutheran, part Irish Catholic stock. I am therefore totally impartial, and the proddys make better whiskey.

You're most welcome. Since I lost Dad last year I have come to realize every day is a gift.

Correction: it was the 70s when hispanic/latino was added to the census. Before that they were counted as white.
You'd think a racist country would want to have lists of all non-whites, eh?

931 Flight shaming??? Look at where this phony climate change nonsense is really taking us. Read into where this is going. How utterly ridiculous. Somebody make this madness stop! It's waaaaay past time to tell these scolders to **** off. This right here is just the tip of the iceberg on what we will be, and will not be, permitted to do if world gov'ts get their way through climate change laws. Prince Charles...16,000 miles in 11 days on private jet? No problem. The little people...you will be permitted a flight coupon for 500 miles travel every 10 years.

I am very sorry you lost your dad, but the gift of being thankful is a great thing. Was that a quality your dad had?

935 * update *

the super bowl opened last week at kc giving 1.5. it's now kc -1, despite vegas reports 80% of wagers so far are on kc.

nevertheless, i'm still seeing sf for the win.

Posted by: mjc at January 29, 2020 07:34 AM (Pg+x7)

936 ... sf?

1. though over the season kc and sf are statistically very close, in their last several games sf's defense has been a monster, just overpowering and dominant.

2. kc's big second half resurgences have been based on the play of one man - their qb. i don't think that will be enough. stop him and they lose.

Most certainly, FS. My son still says Thank you lord for this wonderful bed, which was one of Dad's sayings, when it is bedtime. Thanks for asking.

938 thread probably dead now but it took mw too long to do this count. I will post it now and repeat it again on OM's thread.

Senate Republican 2019 53 total, 21 RINOs 24 DIABLOs rest unrated, so don't count on the damn Senate for anything.

939 I guess I didn't realize it as I haven't seen the play Hamilton, but based on Bolton's book title I can only assume he's going to backstab Trump.

I was reading that he named the book 'Room Where It Happened' after the. 'Hamilton' anthem of corruption. The 'Hamilton' song is an anthem about corruption, addressing a 'quid pro quo' and presidential pressure to deliver."
