The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

'The intensity of their violence and what they can do against women in the absence of law and order is clearly visible,' Laila Haidari, a prominent Afghan activist


Quote II

"I had no doubt this truck would hit a million miles. It's tough and gets great fuel economy, exactly what I need to get the job done. I change my own oil every 10,000 miles and drive carefully. Nothing major has been replaced on this truck, it's really something." Chicagoland delivery man Brian Murphy


Quote III

The guy in the White House is chuckling all night here, showing the Democrats can’t even get a three car funeral organized or whatever you want to call it. I would say to the people of Iowa, ‘Will the last person leaving Des Moines, please turn out the lights?’ This has not been a success.” MSNBC Chris Matthews


Quote IV

“While we try to educate children so that we have a more conscious society, that knows how to respect all forms of life, we come across such an absurdity,” But for animal rights activist and lawyer Ana Paula Vasconcelos


Quote V

Rush Limbaugh: Thank you for your decades of tireless devotion to our country. Rush, in recognition of all that you have done for our Nation, the millions of people a day that you speak to and inspire, and all of the incredible work that you have done for charity, I am proud to announce tonight that you will be receiving our country's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. I will now ask the First Lady of the United States to please stand and present you with the honor. Rush, Kathryn, congratulations! President Donald J. Trump

In case you missed last night's State of The Union Address, you missed the empty chair for fallen Iranian hero Soleimani.

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Washington has a long history of using empty chairs to make political statements, from "empty-chairing" politicians who don't show up to hearings to leaving chairs empty to protest gun violence.


The practice continued at tonight's State of the Union address, as Democrats left a lone chair empty in the audience to honor their fallen hero General Qasem Soleimani.

"We wanted to call attention to the violence Trump has wrought against innocent freedom fighters," Nancy Pelosi said. "This is just one way we continue to call out his callous oppression of America's enemies. Any enemy of America is an enemy of me, I always say, and Trump needs to understand that principle."

The Red Neck Word of The Day

The impeachment follies may be over. But we haven't heard the last about Hunter Biden.

If your vegan shit was so good it wouldn't imitate the real thing. And on top of that vegan junk food may be worse for you than the real thing.

Why vegan junk food may be even worse for your health

While we might switch to a plant-based diet with the best intentions, the unseen risks of vegan fast foods might not show up for years.

Although I am vertically challenged, this surgery doesn't appeal to me.

A Las Vegas limb-lengthening clinic has been getting a lot of attention online this week for offering people the chance to add a few inches to their stature through minimally invasive surgery.

The LimbPlastX Institute charges up to $75,000 to add up to six inches to patients’ height, a hefty price that many are more than willing to pay to overcome their height complex. Dr Kevin Debiparshad, a consultant at the clinic, said that 30 men sign up for the life-changing procedure in 2019 alone, with even more procedures lined up for 2020, especially after the recent media exposure. The procedure surprisingly lasts only 1.5 hours and involves incisions into the leg bones and the insertion of a special stretching device. The full results are only visible after about a year.

Move over OTC cold & flu medicines. Fapping is a relief provider.

Achieving orgasm through masturbation provides a rush of feel-good hormones (such as dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin) and can re-balance our levels of cortisol (a stress-inducing hormone). This helps our immune system function at a higher level.

The surge in "feel-good" hormones also promotes a more relaxed and calm state of being, making it easier to achieve restful sleep, which is a critical part in maintaining a high-functioning immune system.

Just as bad habits can slow your immune system, positive habits (such as a healthy sleep schedule and active sex life) can help boost your immune system which can prevent you from becoming sick.

Canada continues its soft jackbooted march towards totalitarianism.

The globalists and international left will not stop until they have complete control over your every thought.

Justin Trudeau’s “Heritage Minister” Steven Guilbeault told CTV on Sunday that all news websites great and small must now get a government license.


***


Does Pete Rose deserve to be in the MLB Hall of Fame? He is making his case, again.

In a petition which was sent to MLB commissioner Rob Manfred’s office on Wednesday morning, Pete Rose asked that his name be removed from Major League Baseball’s ineligible list, which would allow him to be considered for induction into the Hall of Fame.

Rose, who has been suspended for more than 30 years for gambling on baseball while he was manager of the Cincinnati Reds, makes the argument that, since Manfred opted not to punish the players who were implicated into the investigation into the Houston Astros stealing signs, the 78-year-old should also be exempt from the commissioner’s discipline.

At age 78 the window is closing quickly for him.

Observation and curiosity are disappearing traits.

Couple Receives 55,000 Identical Bills from Student Loan Company In the Mail

Having delivered the last of this season’s letters to Santa, the United States Postal Service marches into bad winter determined to ferry bundles of wishlists from the wide-eyed children of the College Avenue Student Loan Company, who really really wanted a couple to pay their bill this quarter. The company addressed 55,000 identical statements to the Cain household in Twinsburg, Ohio regarding their daughter’s college tuition. Cleveland-based CBS affiliate WOIO estimates that the delivery could have set the company back at minimum $9,000 at a bulk rate (and probably 600 boxes of jumbo crayons), but a wish is a wish, and the Postal Service doesn’t ask questions.

So this Brexit thing. What good is it if your country stays wussified?

The UK is going hard in its game to ban cars. Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced at the launch of talks related to COP26, the next chapter of international climate talks, that his government would accelerate its ban on the sale of gas- and diesel-run vehicles from 2040 to 2035. Leaders are even adding hybrids to the mix for the first time.

The war on gas guzzling cars is a key part of stopping climate change, particularly in countries like the UK. Why? The transport sector makes up 33 percent of its greenhouse gas emissions there, making it the largest chunk of the nation’s emissions. So it makes complete sense for the government to tackle cars if it wants to help avert catastrophic climate change.


As our lawyer friends would say, "Facts not in evidence".

The ONT Musical Interlude


On this day: 5 Feb 2016
A new species of black tarantula that lives near Folsom Prison, California, was named after Johnny Cash. Aphonopelma johnnycashi was among 14 new tarantula species from the southern US which were described by biologists in the journal ZooKeys. via thisdayinmusic.com

&&&


Born on this day: 5 Feb 1944
American songwriter, record producer and musician Al Kooper, known for organizing Blood, Sweat & Tears (although he did not stay with the group long enough to share its popularity). His first professional work was as a 14-year-old guitarist in the The Royal Teens, who in 1958 had the US No.3 single 'Shorts Shorts'. As a member of Blood Sweat & Tears, he had the 1969 US No.12 & UK No.35 single 'You've Made Me So Very Happy'. Kooper played organ on Bob Dylan's 'Like A Rolling Stone' as well as playing on hundreds of records, including ones by the Rolling Stones, B. B. King, The Who, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Alice Cooper, and Cream. via thisdayinmusic.com

What's faster than a speeding truck? Not our Genius Award Winner.

A frantic driver sprints after his fish delivery van as it rolls down the side of a cliff and towards a river in hilarious footage.

The Snowden and Co vehicle starts to move outside the Miskin Arms in the village of Pontyclun, South Wales.

It is parked behind the pub and begins creeping forward before drifting left towards the sheer drop at 9.17am on Saturday.

28 Well, I've placed two $150ish bets on the Iowa Electronic Markets (formerly the Iowa Political Stock Market):

One - that Bernie Sanders will be the Democratic nominee (with a smaller bet that the candidate will not be one of the currently "major" candidates).

Two - that Donald John Trump will win a majority of the popular vote in the 2020 election.

I will make a fair amount of money if those two bets pan out.

47 The animal rights activist is concerned the kids won't view the horse correctly after the special painting class.

OK. then what does that say about tattoos? Is she saying tattoo artists don't view humans as having souls so they're likely to be sociopaths?

and B) my reaction to used a horse as a canvas is "horses are prey animals -- I don't think its entirely safe to have a bunch of kids around one painting on it, even though horses are usually sweet and will try to avoid hurting anyone"

78 Nancy Pelosi said. "This is just one way we continue to call out his callous oppression of America's enemies. Any enemy of America is an enemy of me, I always say, and Trump needs to understand that principle."

Did not watch the SOTU last night (long story) but what I saw/read of Pelosi's behavior, in breaking with protocol in announcing the President, her exaggerated movements after Trump refused her handshake, and the childish ripping up of her official copy of the speech, indicate that she has gone fully mental and must be removed from her position. Plus, she is evil.

81 Watched that Trump video about Romney, and liked it, but there is a big mistake in it. When they're talking about Romney and the 2012 election, they say that Romney's headquarters are in Boston.

110 From Morning Monkey Thread comments section ~ DD and Judy Garland, so the story goes, were both in line to be signed by MGM, but Mayer said "get the fat one," and Garland got the nod.

Durbin went on to Universal and starred in a number of musical films showcasing her pure soprano, but as she got older, she tired of her "plucky girl saves the day" roles and wanted to be taken more seriously as a mature actress.

Much like Shirley Temple, however, audiences didn't want to see a mature Durbin, so in 1949 she quit acting, moved to France and refused ever to grant interviews.

She died in 2013.

Here she is in the 1945 noir Lady On A Train:

People keep insisting that Trump is thin-skinned, impulsive, a seat-of-the-pants sort. His business was developing properties, many in large urban areas. To do that he had to have planned out, very carefully, what would need to be done every step of the way from property acquisition, financing, zoning, plans, builders, materials, etc. and to have gamed out options in case one part fell through or another.

I am not surprised that had material already to go to attack any GOPe that needed a good attacking; he comes from a background where the contingency plan has a contingency plan.

174 69 There will never be another Rush Limbaugh. He is still with us and we all hope he is with us for decades more. But still, there will never be another Rush when he hangs it up.

Posted by: Quint at February 05, 2020 10:07 PM (n13/j)


Agreed, but how many people can say they created an entire modern industry, essentially by themselves?

The modern conservative radio host was only a speck on the horizon, until the 90's, when Rush took off nationally. Talkers were usually on on Sunday nights, not M-F. Maybe Paul Harvey was still around, doing "The Rest of the Story" 2 minutes a day. Barry Farber. Not much more.

He has been defining what a quality talk show is now for 30+ years.

He has dozens, no, make that hundreds of talk show hosts, discussing national, regional, and local issues openly and freely, unlike the 6:00 news heads owned by Progda.

I hope a Rush baby right now is working on a solution to Rush's illness, and somehow gets Rush on it. That's my dream.

But yeah, there is only one Rush Limbaugh. God let us all borrow him for a while, hope it continues for many more years, and I for one am grateful God did.

Yes. Many, years ago supervised invoicing for a utility, and we did small sample runs, identified how many/who was billed over a certain threshold amount, etc. with *every* billing cycle, every month to catch things like this. I would think someone(s) lost their job over that preventable f#ck-up.

182 One of my first inklings that maybe things weren't as they were portrayed, I thought maybe I was a sort of environmentalist. But I noticed there was this dichotomy between actual outdoorsman of my father's cohort - the plaid shirt wearing hunters, fisherman, campers, and the weirdo hippies that didn't know how to cook meat over a fire. "Watermelons - Green on the outside, Red on the inside."

I realized I would much prefer to live next door to a logger, than a Sierra Club field officer. And this general observation seems to hold true with everything. Most of what we've been sold is a complete load of BS.

That was done with the original Blood, Sweat and Tears without David Clayton Thomas who appeared on subsequent albums..

Kooper and Mike Bloomfield's super group album "The Live Adventures of Mike Bloomfield and Al Kooper" is also a classic from that time.

Stuck in an airport, starving, with limited time before my flight, I entered a bar-with-food. Receiving my drink, I picked up the menu and discovered to my horror that I was in a vegetarian restaurant, with no time to find alternatives. After rejecting almost all of the menu, including a Caesar salad made with baby kale (what? vegetarians can't eat Romaine?), I picked a plate of hummus and pickled veggies.

Mrs Splunge said I stank for two days after eating that. Never again.

I disagree. Trump said a while ago that this coup must be investigated and prosecuted so that it doesn't happen to any future president again.

If Trump wasn't as strong and resilient, and a happy warrior, he'd of been escorted out of the White House in disgrace back in 2017. Shit like this Deep State coup will happen again if it's not nipped in the bud and examples made. And not just the small fry like that Ciamarella clown but the big boys like Brennan and Comey (and Clinton with her brass balls).

I have looked pretty hard for any mention of Melania's gracious preparation and handling of the MoF. She wore a simple navy dress so she didn't outshine Rush or Kathryn. We all know that she has an enormous engagement ring (1.5 million) and and an even more lavish 10 year anniversary ring (3 million). She didn't wear either ring. It looked like a sapphire wedding band to me. Why was that a gracious gesture? Because Rush and Kathryn were seated to her left. So when Rush turned his back to her to allow her to bestow the medal, her left hand would've been facing the camera and a big diamond would've shot flashes and sparks--making it about her, not Rush.

Well if I remember my stellar mechanics (calling on my geek side here), when stars collapse they go only so far until the heat and gravity allows them to start burning another element and they get a reprieve, but only if it was a big ass star to start with. A smaller star like our sun may convert hydrogen to helium and poof.. done. A larger one can go farther, like after helium it can go to carbon/oxygen and then onto neon/magnesium and then a few more steps until it hits iron. I don't remember how big betelgeuse was to start with. It might be out of reprieves. If thats the case its on it's final collapse.

391 Stories like having to get an electrical union guy to push a plug into an outlet are legendary.

Amusingly, a dispute over this is going to bankrupt the Portland branch of the Longshore Union, and may bankrupt the whole national Longshore Union.

Two Electricians Union people were employed at the Port of Portland's container terminal, who basically just plugged and unplugged refrigerated containers. Got paid huge salaries, of course.

The Longshoreman's Union decided that they wanted these two jobs, and started illegal walkouts and slowdowns, and illegally harassed anyone trying to use the container terminal. It got so bad that no shipping company would use the container terminal (companies shipped into Tacoma and Seattle, and trucked the containers down to Portland).

Well, the company managing the port just got a huge judgement against the union local and national union, which are appealing the verdict, whining that they will go bankrupt if the judgement is enforced.

Over two jobs.

Couldn't happen to a nicer union.

392 A friend sent me an article today from the Taiwan Press. It had printed screen shots from a Chinese mainland site called Tencent.
It showed much higher numbers than what have been released from the virus outbreak. They got a screen shot that was abruptly taken down showing nearly 75,000 cases confirmed with almost 25,000 fatalities.
Also, 269 cured. and 155,000 suspected cases.
I have zero knowledge about how reliable these numbers are so take them as unsubstantiated and possibly total bull.

Don't.

I live in Queens. We have a serious crime uptick thanks to our new and glorious state 'no bail' law. Property crimes are through the roof, including daylight home invasions where women are raped or killed, tortured for ban account PIN numbers. Then you have the sanctuary state/city problems on top of that. Then there's the recent pantyfa proto riots demanding free subway rides, no police in the subway, etc. The police are handicapped by elected leadership. The place is turning into the shithole it was back in the late 70's-eary 80's.

Diversity is our strength, except when it comes to politics.

I say this in all seriousness: Don't come here. There are much nicer places in this country, and more welcoming, where you can spend your tourist dollars while not looking over your shoulder all the time.

468 Re: Pete Rose

His argument makes no sense. He committed the Ultimate Sin of baseball, betting on baseball games. Every MLB team has the rule posted prominently in their clubhouses, and spells out the penalty. He signed the admission of guilt. The end.

The Astros used technology to steal signs. Cheating, yes, but not a "capital" baseball offense. The managers involved have been canned, as have the front office personnel, but the players are most likely protected by the union. Even if they're not, cheating has always been punished less severely than gambling.

Bottom line is that Rose is making an apples to oranges comparison.

473 Yeah, they're now whining that the Senators who voted for impeachment represent more people than the Senators who voted against impeachment.

The Washington Post is making this argument - Senators who got 68.6 million votes voted for the first impeachment charge, and senators who got 56.7 million votes voted against, a margin of 11.9 million.

The difference in votes, of course, is entirely from California. Diane Feinstein got 6 million votes last time around, and Kamala Harris got 7.5 million votes.

It's similar to the D's "popular vote" argument - Trump won the popular vote in 49 states, but because one state, California, voted overwhelmingly for Hillary, Trump's election is therefore illegitimate.

You could still do it. So many from NOVA has ensconced to friendlier climes. I have seen fancier restaurants, cafes, and stores in the Valley and way outside DC than they have in NOVA. Almost all of these places were started by former beltway bandits who had enough.

Eastern VA is an entirely different thing for sure. They have a different culture and even a different accent.

There's a scam in midtown west where two pedestrians will purposely bump into you, claim you bumped into them, and blame you for their broken 'expensive" camera, glasses etc. and demand payment.

One thing I have learned over the years. Repubs are foolish for courting popular rock bands from the 70s and 80s. How many Repubs have been embarrassed by Springsteen? I believe Bon Jovi is another one. Now you have Mellancamp and even the chick that voices Lisa Simpson.

Two words, Country Music. Taylor Swift and the ditzy chicks are the exceptions. No normal country singer is going to crap on a Repub for using their song or come out for the lefty crazies. Sorry to be biased as there are conservative rock singers. But the more popular types from that era seem to skew one way. If anyone actually read their lyrics they would not be surprised.

Barnes & Noble is withdrawing a planned line of famous literature reissued with multicultural cover images that has been met with widespread criticism on social media.

The author Adriana Herrera had called the books, scheduled to be launched this week, "the classics in blackface."

539 Barnes Noble is withdrawing a planned line of
famous literature reissued with multicultural cover images that has been
met with widespread criticism on social media.



The author Adriana Herrera had called the books, scheduled to be launched this week, "the classics in blackface."



"Diverse Editions," a joint project between Barnes Noble and
Penguin Random House, featured 12 texts, including Lewis Carroll's
"Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein" and L.
Frank Baum's "The Wizard of Oz." The words are the same, but on the
cover, major characters are depicted with dark-skinned illustrations by
artists of "different ethnicities and backgrounds," according to Barnes
Noble.

Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at February 06, 2020 12:44 AM (aKsyK)

the ethnicity thing doesn't bother me really. I remember a Shakespeare movie years ago with Denzel Washington as the lead. It wasn't a great film but he was likely the best actor in it. What gets me is that they are getting rid of great literature pell-mell.

I made a point of buying online the very early editions of the Norton Anthologies of Literature from the early 80s at least. At least then you have some great literature, including diverse voices that mattered. But I can't imagine what the new versions have in them and what they discarded.

556 BloomingIdiot has already walked back one of his successes in reducing crime in NYC: Stop and frisk.

But I'll bet he'll make all those Stop 'N' Go's in small towns across America cease selling extra large cups of soda. Because that IS important.

I see BloomingIdiot the same way as I see Mitt Wobbley. They are both rich and jealous that another rich guy won the presidency and think they can do it, too. What they fail to grasp is that you need a down-to-earth personality to go with that money to win. America is tired of elitists telling us hoi-polloi how to live and BloomingIdiot is a leader in that elitist bowel movement.

When BloomingIdiot ran for mayor, he never said he'd go on a jihad against large cups of soda or trans fats. No, he just decreed that. Just like deBolshevik did not run on banning plastic shopping bags you get at the grocery store. That was another edict.

Oh, and BloomingIdiot can't figure out what he is. He ran as a Republican after Giuliani and won riding his coattails. 4 years later, he ran and won again as a Republican. Then, 2 years into his term, he became an Independent. He had the law changed (surprise! surprise!) so that he could run for a third time and won as an Independent. Now he's running for president as a Democrat.

Little Mikey can't make up his mind except when it comes to banning trans fats in muffins and banning large cups of soda. He has the 'Napoleon was a dictator' part down pat when it comes to his Napoleon complex.

There's a bunch of others. So many that there's no way for them to be staged. It shows a man reacting spontaneously in a manner of empathy and good will towards everyone.

dementia has real attributes that when you see them up close, you will never mistake them. They probably have some stuff online for those who have not faced it. A lot of people think someone is going senile when it could be just forgetfulness or a senior moment. But true dementia/Alzheimer's is unmistakable at least once it has advanced. I only say this so that you might not have to worry. Do some checking. I don't know what info is out there but I bet someone has done a legit video to explain it.

Within a day or two, the guy cut off his ankle monitor and skipped out.

Do people not see the connection here? The reason people wanted their children to enter a profession, not long ago, was to keep them out of those horrible unions.

Late to the party here, but one can work in many trades without belonging to a union. Or one might put up with the union BS only long enough to reach journeyman status, and then bail to become self-employed, or an employee of a small firm.

And some of the most assholish unions don''t really do trades work. Teamsters, longshoremen? Laborers, not trades.

602 The Dem Primaries are quickly turning into an epic disaster. Neither Bernie or Pete has a chance to win in the general, and Pete would risk loosing the African American vote to the Republican. And the media can't come out and say why the same way they can scare voters away from Bernie as being too radical. Prediction, soon "mid-size city mayor" will become a euphemism for homosexual.

It is difficult to tell who I want us to run against as they all suck so bad. I don't buy Biden taking Trump states. His best bet is PA I would think but really I am not seeing it.

Fen, having survived BloomingIdiot's mayoral time, the more you see of, and hear from, BloomingIdiot, the less you'll want to see of, and hear from, BloomingIdiot. Yes, he can throw away gobs of cash on ads, but those ads will not put people in rallies for a Dem candidate. Trump is a one-time phenomenon and a force of nature, and the Dems have no one who can counter that. For a billionaire, Trump is a man of the people (see the next to last pic at the top of this thread). Hillary couldn't fake sincerity, and boy did she try, and neither can any other Dem currently in the running. But all their friends will tell them otherwise, which is the advantage of living in a bubble.

Non partisans who will vote for Trump will do so on the down low, knowing the risks they take with public support. It's Pauling Kael all over again when it came to Reagan: "I don't know anybody who voted for Reagan!" Sure Pauline, sure, you didn't know anyone because they wouldn't tell you anyway knowing the way you felt.

Just on this blog, I've read numerous comments from people who voted for Stein or Johnson in the last election, or just sat it out in 2016 thinking Trump had no chance. Now those same people are in the 'I'll crawl over broken glass to vote for Trump' group.

En-route Northward from Orlando, I'd included NYC in the bucket-list of places I wanted to see whilst riding North to Boston.

So, I did.

At night, in the rain. NYC taxicabs are a third-world plague, at best.

But the pizza I bought in Greenwich Village, was worth the price of admission.

Carried on up to Connecticut that night, hoteling over for a Corporate Meeting the next morning.

Boston was the following Monday.

I never failed to make a scheduled stop or arrival, no matter the weather, conditions or obstacles.

I went there my second time maybe a year or two before that. We were at the end of a military training and decided to stop in the Bronx to see a Yankee game. The neighborhood was not as nice as the Manhattan I visited in the early 80s, but the game was good. Those New Yorkers could yell the entire game with the most creative insults. But they never used a curse word. That is what stood out to me.

And in the early 80s, the subways were covered with graffiti; but again, very few curse words. I wonder if it is still like that.

626 Heck, 25, almost 30 years ago, the infancy of the world wide web, maybe it was the USENET days, BBSs, the lefty politics forums were discussing the Electoral College, and how it had to go. The consensus was getting rid of the Senate - e.g. 2 Senators per state, was a harder row to hoe, but they've had all this shit on their To Do list for a very long time.

As someone mentioned, it only takes a minimum of reading comprehension and common sense to understand the constitution and bill of rights, but it takes 20 years of schooling and a law degree to undermine it and fvck it up three ways to Sunday. That's why anyone who is described as a "constitutional law professor" should generally be beaten severely on general principles. I'm not anti-imtellectual - it's just that these guys are almost uniformly quacks and grifters. Not everyone, but that's the way to bet, apparently. Same thing with "Expert Economists". And now apparently "Climate Scientists"

629 Well, my cold continues to recede. Still horking up some phlegm, but less frequently, and my head is clearer. Did a little framing work in the trailer today. Cut a hole in the metal roof, and then framed around it underneath with plywood and 2Xscrap, to make a sort of a "trunk" for my attic ladder to pass through. A couple more small pieces, and I can move the ladder there, which will be its permanent location. It's one of those folding attic ladders that stows away in the attic when not in use.

With the attic ladder relocated, I will save myself a lot of belly-crawling through the attic to get to the area where most of the wiring gets done. Had to be done eventually, anyway.

Technically, it was Paulene Kael of the New Yorker Mag, and it was the Nixon election. It gets mashed all the time, I used it a lot and have gotten spanked by lefties because it wasn't perfectly quoted. So I researched it.

But yeah, your overall point is spot on.

Here is what I can find from 2011:

https://tinyurl.com/ze9ast3

On Friday, on the New Yorker's website, the magazine's film editor Richard Brody offers what may be the first accurate version of the quote I've ever seen (I'm assuming it's accurate because it comes from the New Yorker itself):

Pauline Kael famously commented, after the 1972 Presidential election, I live in a rather special world. I only know one person who voted for Nixon. Where they are I don't know. They're outside my ken. But sometimes when I'm in a theater I can feel them.



Wonder if Kael, before she passed, ever went into a WalMart?

I have 39 States and over 300,000 miles in the logbooks. And five screws in my left ankle.

I'll quit riding when I'm too old and weak to hold the bike up at a stop.

But the MOST self-dangerous riders on the highways?

Middle age bastards who buy their first Harley (or any large bike) as their first ride.

There's a reason that about 99.8% of those 300,000+ miles are logged as completely solo rides.

I've known precisely TWO other riders who I'd ride with in tight formation.

Both were cops riding escort for oversize loads, for the same company I rode with in the '80s.

We rode like F-16s in tight formation.

Others?

645 I've extensive experience arguing (in the classical sense) with leftists, particularly back when it was still possible to do so.

I was never quite able to square that circle. But I learned to spot all the tricks of the trade. One, is simply deny deny deny. Doesn't matter what the issue is, they just flat out refuse to recognize reality. What color is the sky in your world, indeed.

Then, if through superhuman effort, rhetorical fireworks and indisputable proof, it immediately (at best) segues right into "So what" or "That's old news" etc.

Another common tactic, I'm not sure it's conscious or not, but they hop around a lot, changing the subject in rapid fire staccato, it is very important to keep someone on the subject at hand.

Of course one eventually realizes that they aren't interested in facts, logic, or reason, and aren't going to change their mind. Rhetoric is the art of persuasion. And as a fact of the matter - there's really only two ways you can get someone to do something. Either persuade them. Or force them.

Yeah, I've mostly given up talking any logic or facts any more with Lefties. When they start losing an argument, they just change the subject like you mention.

These days, talking to a leftie about political stuff is like using a light pointer to play with a cat.

Humorous, but it gets old pretty quick.

The sad part is that it wasn't always that way. Even wrong, liberals could still hold a reasonable conversation about issues.

They got smug and lazy under Obama, and Trump is blowing their sh*t away and they are realizing there is little they can do about it.

So they choose to be led around by Progda and ignore reality or facts.

The only thing that saved me, was it wasn't my first ride. I grew up on briggs and stratton mini-bikes, and enduro motorcycles and generally being a normal yoot with a scoot.

So I knew enough to stay out of trouble. The thing still was way too heavy and handled like a barge. I got rid of it after deciding the insurance was a little too spendy for something taking up space in the garage. The real problem is other drivers. It isn't safe out there anymore. Probably never was, but it is insane. I'm not persuaded there is any driver training nor any driver testing anymore, not as we understood the terms.

Nope... saw it from the road. Not enough time. We were either fishing, or on our way to fishing (tried the Truckee in & around Verdi on Sat. afternoon).

We knew catching would be a long shot. People had been catching the week prior, but it is still winter, after all, and there are no guarantees.

657 The sad part is that it wasn't always that way. Even wrong, liberals could still hold a reasonable conversation about issues.

that was my experience as well. I used to love to debate them. I had lefty girl friends that I flipped or at least helped along their way. I also had lefty teachers that were fun to go back and forth with. I feel sorry for people in school today, I really do.

Maybe a teacher or prof held it against me but I refused to be a victim and really never saw that. Today I guess they have no choice. I mean, they could rebel but it is not in them to rebel in that way.

When I hear a lefty go off as is so common these days, the only play is to leave the situation. You can not fix crazy life is too short. There is a reason many are leaving their traditional homelands to be among people with similar values. Life is too short and the crazy has no redeeming value at all.

660 646 I think they had Bon Marche or something like that.


Bon Marche, a Seattle retail institution, changed their name to Macy's about 20 years ago when the ownership was realigned, and is closing for good it's flagship downtown store this month. It is a bummer if you are a native and appreciate tradition. Like me.

Other suburban mall locations will remain open.

You, sir, are a motorcycling generous, and my friend.

Frankly, you were but one Motorcycle Safety Foundation course short of a much safer ride. But I getcha. It's far worse out there in the Cel-Phone era, than ever before.

I'm not throwing rocks atcha, bro.

But all that previous experience? If you'd had boarded some other bike, maybe a KTM or BMW dual sport, maybe a café-racer.

Riding would've been fun again.

But choosing a Harley as your re-introduction was a recipe for failure. Not because H-D sucks. They don't.

But because that ride is just too much the size, weight and wheelbase as compared to your previous experience.

Both Yamaha and Honda make two of the best 250 dual sports ever.

Transition your experience, there.

Ride for two years. Then, the heavyweights, aWEIGHT.

667 My last time on a bike, briefly:

1) Left foot into a missing plank hole on a dark porch, right knee up to my chest. 2) Left foot slip on a snowy slope, right foot catches on landscaping RR tie, right knee up to my chest.

3) "Wanna ride it around the block?" "Sure." Didn't compute about bike leaning slightly uphill on stand. Raised stand, straddled, and pushed over, and over, and over, and down onto my hip and leg...yeah, that one.

669 Jim, you're trying to be charitable. I know better. Harley's suck, and handle like garbage scows. Hell, even Sonny Barger admitted as much.

No, I wasn't clear enough. Doesn't matter what bike I have, I'm not riding out there with all the idiots out there. It's not worth the worry, there's no way to relax. Not if you're paying attention, and halfway sane. Maybe if I lived in rural Nevada on hwy 50 or something like that, where there was little traffic.

People even purposefully run motorcycles off the road or cause collisions or whatever. I've seen it. and experienced it. I came pretty close to beating someone within an inch of their life. I don't need that kind of thing. I'd prefer to stay out of jail. Killing stupid drivers has a lot to be said for it, but we're not their yet as a society I don't believe.

I-35 South, between Waco and Austin, TX.

Aggressive tailgater in a Chevy half ton P/U. No matter the lane changes and accelerations, he remained affixed to within 20 ft. of my saddlebags.

Pulled the Browning BDA .380 out of the backrest pouch, tucking it under the right thigh, on the saddle.

The Chevy driver saw that, and opted for the next exit.

Posted by: Gooshy at February 06, 2020 05:24 AM (9u5XO)

The problem is they are best known for their biscuits. If the corporate head at Red Lobster, don't see the issue, I can't help them.

It is the opposite of Mcdonalds being best known for their fries. Everyone loves their fries, even famous chefs. Not one says they have great burgers but they will always get a burger when they go there. The fries are a hook that guarantees people buy their burgers.

With Red Lobster, a very expensive restaurant, the last thing you want to be known for is a biscuit. And selling them outside the restaurant makes no sense at all from a business perspective.

People can disagree on their seafood. I personally don't think that much of it. I have found the lobster to often be overcooked and the rest just standard,farmed stuff you can get at Safeway. The vegetable sides are uniformly terrible and show the cook is not even trying. Ok, not so much the cook but the chef who plans these meals. I would bet TGIF has better sides than Red Lobster.

If you compare the fotrunes of Red Lobster to Mcdonald's over the years, there really is no comparison. Seafood, particularly shellfish is often a low margin business as the product is expensive even at wholesale. But what has Red Lobster done in the last 30 years to invigorate the brand? If they didn't have those great commercials, they would be sunk.
jmo, the advice was free and likely not worth much more than that.

727 I haven't been to a Red Lobster in decades. The closest one to me is about 40 miles away. Their seafood is rather bland but my wife used to like their flounder. I would get the platter so I could have a variety. But I have found that really good seafood can only be gotten at the beach where it is fresh.

We used to have a place here who would send a truck down ro the beach every day to get fresh fish but that was a big expense. But they did good business until the owner got old and retired.

749 The weird thing is that McDonalds used to fry in beef tallow, but changed because the health nuts claimed it was killing you. Instead they used vegetable oil and a soy/corn blend.

Looking back now, we realize hydrogenated polyunsaturated vegetable oils are actually the worst for your body and it's most trendy (and accurate) for dietary plans to recommend saturated fats.

When you think about it, it should have been a no brainer to realize that your body was going to be able to process and use natural occurring animal fats versus factory generated, chemically modified fats.

they got woke and paid a price. From my understanding, they did use a beef tallow that gave their fries a special flavor. Someone freaked out that even the potatoes were not vegan and the switched it up. I am not saying they are the same, but even today they use an artificial beef flavor in the oil to try to replicate it. My drop dead day was when they stopped making the fried pies. The baked pies suck and I bet they don't sell a tenth of the pies they used to.

True.

The nature of our jobs changed quite a bit to.

My grandfather ate bacon/sausage, eggs, biscuits, grits with butter and coffee for breakfast.

Then he crawled into a coal mine and beat rocks out the side of tunnel all day for twelve hours, pausing only for a sammich halfway through the day. Then he ate a big dinner full of fats and high glycemic carbs. Skinny as a rail.

The definition of 'rich' has always been fluid with the Democrats. Extra taxes after the first million, check that, after the first two hundred and fifty K, check that, after the first one hundred thousand. One hundred may have been rich man's wages years ago but now that's a middle class salary in many parts of the country.

Have a friend who has a house on Staten Island. They keep talking about raising property and income taxes to pay for the free shit given to the illegals/do nothings. My friend complains all the time about it but I keep telling her that, according to the Democrats in charge of this state, she owns a house so she's rich and can pay it. She gets angry with me every time I tell her that because she knows it's the truth.

it's fun, and a bit disconcerting, to take a globe and turn it upside down, and think on how that view of the world is every bit as valid as the one we're used to, direction being completely arbitrary in spacial terms. The only reason we model the globe the way we do is because the first globe makers all lived in Europe, and felt that Europe should always be "on top".

I think I know what you are saying there Rick. It is not a $15 an hour job for newbies. It is mean to be a first job for teens or someone new to the country. But I believe a recent Mcdonalds CEO rose up from a fry cook. It might not be the present guy but it was a recent guy. Those jobs are great to start or get a fresh start. But yeah, minimum wage to start is not evil, it is the way to get a foot in an move up.

Maybe it is rather than true self hatred more relishing being seen to self-hate. Making a virtue of vice, perhaps.

840 I have often though that many American towns just have no good old school seafood house options. Look at the chains. Red Lobster has been moribund for decades, Long John Silver's is not expanding a lick. Arthur Treacher's is dead in the water. It seams no one can get fast food/chain seafood right.
And there is a dearth of the old school seafood houses unless you are in the regions other hordians mentioned. Best Lobster is in Maine. Best Crabs in Maryland, best shrimp, imo, the Gulf Coast.

But for other areas, you just don't see affordable seafood houses of quality. That is my experience and others probably do have them. We have the super expensive a c note for two places, but not a regular family place were you can get a good seafood dinner for $20.

I guarantee it was a lie. And if nothing else, it was out of context. What if people leaked Tom Landry's or Vince Lombardi's speeches? To be honest with you, and I realize it is your dad, but in general, people are going to believe what they choose to believe at this point. Most people don't even consider the other side these days.
