6 Good Morning Morons today is Sunday, May 3, 2020. On this day in 1802 Washington, D.C. was incorporated as a city after Congress abolished the Board of Commissioners, the District's founding government. The "City of Washington" was given a mayor-council form of government. They should have left it alone as the idiot Democrats want to make it a State now.

21 Welp my brand new alternator (installed about a month ago) with less than 400 miles threw its bearing about 100 miles away from home. Thankfully the truck is parked in my friend's dad's driveway - but it's two hours away - and its a brand new alternator (not a reman).

Added up some of the costs on this truck and over a year and a half of ownership I'm at $150k.

For my dream car its really at nightmare status. Did get to do some pretty fun offroading yesterday though.

If it wasn't for the fact that the thrown bearing made the pull shred the belt, I would drive until the computer stopped working. It's got dual batteries and it's a turbo diesel.

Yeah, it's a lot. I'm an emotional idiot when it comes to this thing. I fire the parts cannon at it expecting things to get better but it just keeps breaking.

48 The left-winginess of Doctor Who didn't really begin with the Moffat era. There's an interview with Sylvester McCoy from a decade ago where he outright admits that left-wing writers came in to deliberately and quietly inject politics into the show's storylines back in the 80s. "Our feeling was that Margaret Thatcher was far more terrifying than any monster the Doctor had encountered," he said.

62 A snip from the blog Second City Cop about the Mayors new mandate. The name Groot is an acceptable nick for the Mayor.

Jail....and then what? An I-bond from the District, a dismissal at Court, and a Civil Right attorney knocking at the door with a proposition for a lottery win.

Groot and her ilk have spent their lives cultivating disrespect for the Rule of Law in general and police specifically. Now they act surprised when residents don't want to follow a legally questionable "mandate." They're extra surprised when cops object to being thrown into a situation that endangers their physical and financial well-being after years of being painted as the bad guys.

I am glad my state tends to not have extreme animals and insects such as those with the prenom, "murder" The state I was born in has pretty much every killer everything and crazy weather like golf ball hail and tornadoes to boot. Then when you throw in burrs, you have a lot going on. That builds character I guess.
The scariest insect I know of is the cow killer ant. They were big and furry too but pretty much indestructable. We would encounter them in Columbus GA while hanging out in the bush. These things would not go down if you slammed them with an m-16 butt. But luckily they usually traveled alone, they were rogues.

119 The Spanish Influenza also started 102 years ago so it can be argued that the current WuHan flu is the deadliest in the past century without being a lie. I hope everyone who pushes that junk bursts into flames on the spot.

I have a young social media friend who recently posted a photo where in the top half is a photo of illegal aliens in detention behind chain link fence. caption: "those aren't concentration camps don't be hyperbolic".

The lower photo is of a upper-middle class white family of four watching television in comfort of their modern living room. caption: "This is tyranny"

So the Left is already waving the hands and saying that the destruction of millions of lives, and impositions to speech, movement, assembly; the State declaring who is "essential" and can work and those who are condemned to financial ruin, sending in goons to break up worship services, outlawing a pick-up basketball game; forbidding haircuts, dental work, and kids play with neighbors...

That isn't tyranny.

137 There should be a thread on the really stupid pc changes to terms such as mail man. Mail Man is not the worst, letter carrier is ok I guess but still dumb. To me, letter carrier is a more demeaning term.

Sure there are tons of pc changes but some of them are just horrible. I still can't believe the Syracuse Orange Men changed their name to the Syracuse Orange. The women's teams were called the Orange Women. But the Orange? What does that even mean?

One that has really bothered my lately is the Ace Hardware commercial. They jingle was always, "Ace is the place with the helpful hardware man". Now they say, "Ace is the place with the helpful hardware folks". It sounds stupid, stands out to people who are over 29, and does nothing for any cause whatsoever. It says they are lame and that is that.

138 CNN says there may never be a WuFlu vaccine. We may have to stay 6 feet apart forever.

Curious as to how this magical "six feet of social distancing" came about, I did some research.

The problem is, there is NO vigorous research on "social distancing". Basically they are taking guidelines that have been around for quite a while for medical personnel, in a hospital setting, to approach those who are compromised.

That is, the surgeon doesn't stand alongside the patient that she is going to cut up in the next minute and then put on a mask and gloves.

So this "CDC Approved" two meter spacing before putting on PPE in a hospital setting is a direct analog to walking in the park or shopping at the home improvement store.

They are winging it and there is nothing scientific about "six feet" yet they attach criminal penalties for violating it.

That is tyranny.

168 147 How did they get us to accept gender as the new word for sex? Gender was a word for language, such as the Romance languages that would ascribe a gender to certain words. It makes no sense to ask someone what gender they are. At least if you asked that a few decades ago many would wonder what you are talking about. They won that one, one of many.

My father in law, rest his soul, was a brilliant immunologist PhD. He was a scientist at Burroughs Wellcome and was pivotal in the development of AZT.

He interacted a lot with Fauci professionally. My mother in law (sweetest woman on earth, I'm convinced) said that Fauci always traveled with an "entourage" and was "all about himself" at professional conferences. When she talks about him - she always has a disapproving look on her face like she's scolding a toddler.

You noticed that he says a lot but does nothing too.

Sort of like the past two generations of Republican House and Senate investigators. They all yell about getting to the bottom of it and never any charges filed despite the legal pad full of felonies discovered.

I was used to saying that the Trump administration is the absolute worse in that the DOJ refuses to even investigate Deep State, but apparently this is a long held Republican Tradition of maintaining double standards.

The Left can and will prosecute and imprison anyone not of the State, even if they have to make it up like Stone, Flynn et al, But when you have outright sedition, treason and a host of felonies committed by the Left or of the Deep State (BIRM) nothing.

And everyone on planet earth knows it and is OK with it.

I'm at the point where we can abolish the DOJ along with half the cabinet departments and the US military as being worthless expenses.

Got my last month's checks all at once. Then, yesterday, got another e-mail saying I hadn't made enough money. Checked into my online account and couldn't find any place to claim benefits.

Was all ready to spend hours on the phone tomorrow, but before coming here this morning, decided to check on-line one more time.

Bingo - now there's a little "action item" telling me to file a claim for last week so I can get my Kung Flu money.

245 I dunno, there's probably a chance of reclaiming the military by excising all of the officer class and restocking those ranks from the senior NCO's.

The military has always had its bureaucracy and politics - I'm not assailing the men and women in uniform.

The military is just one gargantuan budget expense. It hasn't been used for legitimate national security since we had the Department of War and I'm at the point I don't know what the military would defend us against.

It sure isn't freedom and liberty because I can't think of any sovereign government right now that would have a more oppressive, corrupt, tyrannical government that what we are experiencing Right Now, and what many are hoping that we will have tomorrow.

aka "The New Normal" and the surveillance State where we are tracked constantly "for our own good".

I think the Donald realized early on, after he attempted to call for a calm approach in early February, that he would be politically crucified if he kept on that path, called the greatest Mass Murderer in US history. (he's called that anyway, in spite of what he's done) So, he decided to jump out and instead be in charge of the shutdown, in order to guide it. To do that, he had to accept it and own it, and hire on it's leading proponents, such as Fauci, to be *his* guys. Having chosen that path, he's not got to stay on it.

If you want to see a leader who's actually done this thing correctly, look to Bolsonaro in Brazil. And look at how much crap he gets for it, even here. (and I'm sure I'll be criticized for holding him up as the model we should have followed)

No one is willing to accept that it would have been best just to let it run its course while we isolated only those most at risk.

I looked at the TX dashboard of covid cases last night. Looks like the new cases and new deaths are both pretty flat, and the deaths are very heavily skewed to older people. The racial distro is pretty close to a third each black, white, and Hispanic, which is our population. (Always weird to me to see TX depicted as nothing but racist white hillbillies...Houston is a racially diverse *and* racially mixed area. Granted, the little town I currently live in is 90% white, but it also has an average household income close to if not actually in the six figures and an average education level slightly above four years of college per adult. So, it's not remotely representative. My husband and I make fun of it a lot (neither of us is from a wealthy background AT ALL). My mom used to teach in the high school here and still calls it Stepford - the moms were all dressed alike, etc. I don't fit in at parent meetings!)

100% agree. He was calling for calm in the beginning but the hysteria was starting to build as the left saw it as a way to hurt him politically. Right before the 15 days to slow the spread started Steve Cortes on his radio show was in DC (mostly for a White House meeting) and talking about treating this like a war and throwing everything we had at it to stop this as fast as possible. That was the thinking going into to the shutdowns. But the left maneuvered again on that to let's use this to crush the economy so let's inflated the numbers so it looks like we have to keep extending this and then let's start the government give aways too

My husband and son like to eat them. I go through about 6 a week. The selection is very limited, only have about 5-6 versions in our HEB. I think Walmart has a better variety but haven't been there in months.

When did you get yours? In 1990, it was a permanent issue but, of course, you had to have a current medical to use it. Now, I understand they are no longer permanent. Mine said, IIRC, Type: Private Pilot, SEL. (Single Engine Land);

310 I can't imagine that Hawaii has 4 bigger economic contributors than tourism.
I suppose sugar & pineapples? What else?
Btw, Costa Rican pineapples are much tastier, & that's why CR now leads the world in exporting pineapples.

312 The attacks on Tara Reade are all out of the standard M.O. for any man accused of sexual assault before the Me Too movement. Don't talk about the actual incident, rather find every piece of unrelated dirt you can on the accuser, in order to convince Judge and Jury that she was they type of woman who would have invited such a move from a man. Therefore, HE must be the innocent victim.

Headline at the Bezos/Amazon Post - Inside Trump's Desperate Attempt to Reopen America
You
see Trump turned away from the "scientists" and looked at economic
considerations too and started to hype "fantasy" drugs as a cure to get
the economy open again.

Maybe as a group.

But at the individual level, they have some serious competition from some other groups.

327 In the nearby city a civil rights organization is upset that not enough white people aren't dying. It seems to be hitting the black community especially hard.

Come on white people step up and die so we can even out the numbers!

Posted by: Colin at May 03, 2020 08:20 AM

Meh.

Just checking the stats for Michigan this past week, the demographic breakdown of the 41,379 cases and 3,789 deaths was:

(Cases/Deaths)
--- Black (32% / 41%)
--- White (33% / 47%)

or...

(Cases/Deaths)
--- Black (13,241 / 1,553)
--- White (13,779 / 1,781)

Or, put another way based on percentage of Michigan population:

Black population: 1,360,000
White population: 7,480,000

Percentage of COVID-19 cases/deaths by population:

(Cases/Deaths)
--- Black: (0.97% / 0.11%)
--- White: (0.18% / 0.02%)

So approximately 1% of the Black population of Michigan has been infected with COVID-19 and 0.11% of the Black population of Michigan has died from COVID-19.

Meanwhile, what percentage of the Black population of Michigan has been affected by the now 49-day shutdown of the state? I would bet it is MUCH higher than 1%.

328 So the game this fall is the blue-state governors where Trump won in 16 (Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin) or would likely win in 20 (Minnesota, Nevada, Colorado) are going to use the virus as an excuse to implement fraudulent mail-in voting and hand their states' electoral votes to Biden.
-----
How many of those states have both houses controlled by the Dems?

Republicans control the House in PA, WI, MI.
Republicans control the Senate in MN

Only in NV does the dems control both houses.

So, only if the Republicans roll over will it happen. Even token opposition will delay this until it's too late to print.

Medium opposition and it's litigated to the Supreme Court until next year.

Quit worrying about that.

Why do you think they were trying to pass it at the federal level? To supersede state laws.

Voter ID is "racist" dontchaknow. And I was attacked on Twitter a week or so ago for daring to say that mail-in voting was rife with fraud.

Posted by: Clyde Shelton at May 03, 2020 09:45 AM (Do5/p)

331 "Mail-in voting" is called "Taking a survey". Show up to an official polling place and prove who you are, go to jail if you are lying your *** off.

332 I don't know what a murder hornet does, But I saw really pretty red and black ant. I decided to pick it up and look at it. It looked like velvet. It proceeded to sting the shit out of me.

Posted by: Oldsailors Poet at May 03, 2020 07:26 AM

Had one of those in my house, once. That was my opportunity to tell my kids that if something in nature is brightly colored, it either tastes really bad to predators, or will sting the shit out of you. Maybe I should have told you, instead.

It's actually a flightless wasp that's called by names like "velvet ant" and "cowkiller." It apparently has one of the most painful stings ever.

Cowkiller.

It's a flightless wasp. Worst / most powerful sting in North America IIRC.

334 OTTAWA - The federal government has outlawed a wide range of rifles with the aim of making Canada safer, saying the guns were designed for the battlefield, not hunting or sport shooting.

The ban issued Friday covers some 1,500 models and variants of what the government considers assault-style firearms, meaning they cannot be legally used, sold or imported, starting immediately.

The list includes the popular AR-15 rifle and the Ruger Mini-14 used to kill 14 women at Montreal's Ecole Polytechnique in 1989.

"Today we are closing the market for military-grade assault weapons in Canada," Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a news conference.




May their chains rest lightly upon them.
