The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“It takes some energy to go high, and we were exhausted from it. Because when you are the first black anything. A lot of our folks didn’t vote. It was almost like a slap in the face.”Michelle Obama

There really is a plantation.


Quote II

"I worry that the past two months of quarantine have given people the idea that way for humans to win our million-year war with microbes is to avoid them completely. And I'm here to tell you you can't," Bill Maher


Quote III

People don’t submit automatically to zombification when some pissant bureaucrats issue them $1200 checks. They yearn to bust out like everything else on this living planet. And if they can’t do it in a good way, well….James Howard Kunstler


Quote IV
West Virginia Governor Jim Justice Tells WV Businesses to "F***ing" follow the Guidelines!

***


Is Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg a cat? How many lives does she have? Ginsburg hospitalized.

On the bright side, or maybe not, they weren't wearing brown shirts.

SAN FRANCISCO -- San Francisco’s police chief said the city’s rank and file will wear neutral face coverings to defuse a controversy after officers sent to patrol a May Day protest wore masks adorned with the “thin blue line” flag.

The police union ordered and distributed the masks emblazoned with black-and-white American flag with a blue stripe across the middle. The symbol is associated with the Blue Lives Matter movement, a display of unity among police officers in response to the national Black Lives Matter movement.

In an email obtained by KTVU-TV, Chief Bill Scott told his officers Friday he considered the blue flag and stripe “a meaningful expression to honor fallen officers." However, he worried that some may perceive the symbol as “divisive and disrespectful.”

A retired civil rights lawyer told the San Francisco Examiner that the masks, which also include the logo for the San Francisco Police Officers Association, violate a long-standing policy that bars police from expressing political opinions while wearing their uniforms.

Rep. Kevin McCarthy is contributing factor why the GOP is considered The Stupid Party. Feel free to insert an adjective in front of Stupid.

Our Founding Fathers must be spinning at the speed of light in their graves. We have surrendered our republic without a shot. Just a whimper here and there.

A Dallas hair salon owner who defied a Coronavirus lockdown order will spend seven days in jail, according to a local news report. The salon owner refused to keep her business closed and defied a direct cease and desist order from Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins in April.

“Shelley Luther, a Dallas hair salon owner who opened in violation of the governor’s executive order, sentenced to 7 days in jail for civil / criminal contempt of court and fined $7,000,” CBSDFW reported Andrea Lucia tweeted on Tuesday.


This sounds like a perfect cause for a Go Fund Me Campaign.

Big Tech joined at the hip with Big Government. Just what the hell could happen?

(Reuters) - Apple Inc (AAPL.O) and Alphabet Inc’s (GOOGL.O) Google on Monday said they would ban the use of location tracking in apps that use a new contact tracing system the two are building to help slow the spread of the novel coronavirus.

Apple and Google, whose operating systems power 99% of smart phones, said last month they would work together to create a system for notifying people who have been near others who have tested positive for COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus. The companies plan to allow only public health authorities to use the technology.

Both companies said privacy and preventing governments from using the system to compile data on citizens was a primary goal. The system uses Bluetooth signals from phones to detect encounters and does not use or store GPS location data.

Call me paranoid, but I don't trust them, not for one minute.

The ONT Musical Interlude

A 5 year old with a wallet and car keys. Parents? Genius Award Winner.

WEBER COUNTY, Utah (ABC4 News) – According to troopers with the Utah Highway Patrol a 5-year-old boy was pulled over driving his parents’ car on the freeway Monday.

UHP said a trooper in Weber County initiated a traffic stop on what he thought was an impaired driver. Turns out it was a young man, age 5, troopers added.

UHP said he told troopers he left home after an argument with his mom, in which she told him she would not buy him a Lamborghini. He decided he’d take the car and go to California to buy one himself. Troopers said he might have been short on the purchase amount, as he only had $3 dollars in his wallet.

Not sure if Topeka, KS is under dictatorial stay at home laws. Whether or not Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Ann Darby and her mother, Rebecca Cox, got an unusual alert from their Ring doorbell camera.

"It was a guy mowing the lawn on a zero-turn, in dark overalls and a fluorescent shirt," Darby told KSNT. "We assumed it was the city."

The next day when Darby's husband called the City of Topeka, they said it wasn't them who mowed Rebecca's lawn. Rebecca is blind, so Ann and her husband have been caring for her at their home in Caney during the stay-at-home order.

Ann said they had planned to make the nearly three-hour drive this weekend to mow the lawn themselves, but things have been busy.

Check in the settings. There may be an option to flip the image. I seem to recall this happening with Skype as well (thought that was a long time ago), and there was a setting to fix it.

Not sure why these programs do the mirror image thing.

I know of some people whose driver licenses are up for renewal this month - that type of renewal that goes towards the yellow star: fingerprints and photo.

Yet the DMV is closed, and day after day that they are closed, it is just that many people in queue for when it opens.

Three months of this will be real interesting as they do a quarter's worth of work in less than a month.

yeah, those government drones.

And I'm sure the asshole cops and everyone else that requires a current photo ID will understand.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor at May 05, 2020 10:16 PM (KZzsI)

It's a real bitch for TX govs to issue pardons.

I'm not making excuses for the guy. Gov Abbott could be better in this situation. But the TX governorship is possibly the weakest in the country. You can make a case that the lieutenant governor is in a stronger position than the governor. (And the lt gov gets $7200/yr compared to the gov's six figure salary. Go figure.)

The clerk noticed that the driver's license was expired and that prompted an explanation of why it had not been updated, that being that the offices are closed.

They're wrong. Even in Texas.

"And I'm sure the asshole cops and everyone else that requires a current photo ID will understand."

I had my grip on until my registration sticker arrived in the mail yesterday.

Normally I do this much sooner. But the one place in the county that I know of that does state inspections stopped doing them because coronavirus. Well, f*** me. Fortunately one morning I went in and got my truck inspected in another county while I had some time off.

So now that I got that done I went up to the county courthouse to pay the registration fee on the spot and get the registration sticker on the spot. Nothing doing. THEY were closed because coronavirus.

So I paid it online and had to wait on getting it by mail. This part of TX is crawling with DPS all looking for any and every excuse to harass people because they are looking for drugs and to raise money for cash strapped jurisdictions that line the highways. Other cops lurk as well but mainly you see DPS. I was not looking forward to getting stopped by DPS with an expired registration sticker which I'd be driving with, not because I'm a lazy bum who didn't pay the freight, but because a bunch of flunkies don't want to open their businesses and the government wants to drag their feet and sit on their asses. (I have no faith I'd get stopped by a cop who'd be gracious and run the tags and see I paid the money and would say "Yeah, the mail sucks, the courthouse needs to get their heads out of their asses, just do me a favor, will ya? Slap that sticker on there as soon as you get it." No. I'd draw the guy who's having a bad day and needs someone to take out his frustrations on. Make book.)

But I got the sticker, and fortunately that part is done. But what a PITA for something that normally takes less than no effort.

236 This is NOT the country I spent my most productive years defending.

That sentiment is something that I would like to explore.

Here we have abuses after abuses heaped upon us with no end in sight. We have 1033 equipment out in the middle of a desert so that the local retards can roll up a tank and aim crew served weapons at some out-of-work roughnecks who simply want a drink.

We have outlaw judges, mayors, governors, sheriffs, then Houston has a problem with a literal illegal alien female Millennial in the highest elected office letting her inner Maduro loose.

We have lost all of our Constitutional Rights and a significant portion of the country is OK with that and would like for that to be the New Normal.

So I ask this question, in all seriousness. What is the point and purpose of a military at this juncture? China is allegedly making noise about going kinetic and the thought of dispatching a military out to interfere is horrifying to most people.

Its almost universal now the sentiment of nation building, foreign adventures and spending billions of tax dollars defending Saudi Arabia's ability to destroy our petroleum economy.

So what is the point and purpose of having an extremely expensive military that won't defend our borders, won't defend our freedom, and about the only thing they have done is send two Navy hospitality ships to serve as backups to two cities?

The cynic would say that the military exists to support the MIC and to keep our Oppressors safe from any opposition.

Given what plans that have slipped out that they have for this country, what government could possibly be worse - especially considering how much this current one is costing us?

Forced to wear a paper mask, or forced to wear the veil in public... what's the real difference? We pay jizra to the parasites, the courts are utterly corrupt and there is layer upon layer of oppression.

So why have a military? And what is the motivation of any soldier now-a-days because its laughable to say that they are fighting for Freedom - because there is no Freedom.

Does that sound right? Starts out pretty laid back but the last third or so she really rips it, guitar and vocals.

And there is a live version of Kelley Hunt doing "Queen of the 88's" at a gig up around Buffalo NY, I think.

Trampled Underfoot is another KC based band that is very good.

I gotta turn in.

You can take your Official Tx Registration Renewal Notice (green bordered heavy stock), and Inspection Report to the Customer Service Desk at Kroger.

And as if by magic, they transform into a branch of your local County Tax Office, and print out for you, your very own actual Texas Registration windshield sticker, ready to apply.

County offices are closed.

Kroger, isn't.

They keep it up, then one day instead of the cops thinking it is "us against the f***ing world", it WILL BE "us against the f***ing world". And they won't be able to do their jobs if it gets to that point. Sad, but true.

And the worst part is that they can blame no one but themselves if that comes to pass.

I went through that when getting a new driver's license, with a an expired passport as one piece of ID.

The guy handling things agreed with, me. He was fairly young, but very respectful. Turns out he was a vet, which I learned because I used my DD-214 as one bit of ID.

Without my thinking about it, he added my Vet status to my license, and told me, "When you come back, just let me know, and I'll move you to the front if line", which he did.

At any rate, his explanation for the refusal of expired documents was simple, it's not illegal to counterfeit an invalid document.

The Moon seems to be made of rocks similar to mantle rocks on Earth. One might expect to find minerals and metals that we find in "magmatic segregation" deposits here on Earth, but not the lighter and/or lower-temperature minerals. So, possibly nickel, copper, possible gold, PGM's. Not so likely, silver, lead, zinc, tin, tungsten, fluorine.

Seems to be a consensus the Moon dust is enriched in Helium 3.

One big problem with mining and milling on the Moon is lack of water. Most mills use water intensively.

324 Here's an interesting thing.

My office is open to return to work. But we have to wear masks in common areas, have hand sanitizer handy, and clean our desks daily.

Or.

I have a very stable VPN and internet service in my house. Granted, a lot of my office mates do not have similar stable services. But. I do. So.

Do I drive 25 minutes to my office, sanitize my desk, have a mask handy in case I have to make tinkles, and make sure nobody is made to be uncomfortable when I cough or sneeze (seasonal allergies)?

Or, do I get up at 8:45, log in, set up, open whatever CAD drawing I'm working on while the Keurig warms up? Pantsless, even.

Needy kitty is not part of the equation.

Guess which route I chose?

In LA he's driven everywhere and only interacts with Hollywood types and his audience.

My understanding is that reasonably recent threads are more or less monitored for really "offensive" content that could get the boss of bosses in trouble with internet providers, advertisers, etc.

Old threads could get trolled/spammed with really problematic content that could be used to damage the already perilous reputation of the blog, so DO NOT post on old threads (if you like this place)!

Last I read, no. I don't think that was a cosmic ray, though. I doubt a cosmic ray could be in two places at once, namely in the IR motion sensor that turns on the lights and the camera, and in the camera itself. Unless maybe they use the camera's image capture device as the IR motion sensor, too. My thought: some prankster just out of camera range flicked a cigarette butt into the camera's view field. Big enough, and certainly hot enough to trigger the motion sensor.

I do wonder about the mental states of the author, editor, and publisher.

My workplace is bringing everybody back in-house. They've imposed the usual rules, however.

Masks mandated when you leave your cubicle/office. (I have a cubicle with walls, but it seems strange to call it an office.) Minimal interpersonal contact; use email instead. No more walking down another department's hallway to get to the break room. In the break room, get your food, then skedaddle back to your work station.

I can handle these, as pointless as they seem. I detest these masks, but I'm treating that as part of the dress code. I'm also putting a dot on the mask for each day of the mandate. Here's hoping it won't look like measles.

Apr. 5: 9,643 deaths
May 5: 71,043 deaths


But those aren't CDC numbers, those are Enemedia numbers.

The Enemedia counts those who died with not only those who died of. Plus many states are counting deaths in nursing homes that have not been tested to be counted as Covid deaths to be Covid tests.

So the numbers are juiced so asshole trolls, "journalists" and politicians can be idiots or something evil and non-productive.

The new method of counting Confirmed that has been adopted this last week, is to count not people who test positive, but to count tests that come back positive. So if someone tests positive, that counts as one, like it always has. But if their job requires them to quarantine until they no longer have it, then that same person might be tested many more times. Each of those tests taken every other day adds to the total numbers of those who are Confirmed.

This dramatically jacks up the numbers by changing what is being compared. Its fraud, but that is what we expect these days.

So what we have now is a shiboleth. If someone is gleefully reporting the juiced numbers, we can immediately recognize them as a seditionist and saboteur and treat them with the usual contempt and disgust they deserve.

Well they do know how to count. Sort of like how Stalin liked to count votes.

Politicians rigged the game to throw large money at entities that "battled Covid", so the game was on to generate those Covid counts to get that sweepstakes money.

Then governors discovered that if you work the numbers right you can prolong the pain and misery for as long as you want.

And the counters complied with that desire and generated schemes to count in a certain way to guarantee a certain desired response.

But for those of you who want correct numbers for the sake of science and posterity - forget it.

True, but one would like to have potential resource areas under control, nonetheless.

I worked on a well in Greenland, on the west coast, just north of Disko Island. There were oil seeps found on the coast north of where we drilled, but the logistics of moving a rig to that location were insurmountable. We drilled through a great many basalt lava flows, and then broke through into clean white sand. There was a puff of gas at each breakthrough, but no continued flow. Eventually, we got below the oldest lava, and it was clean white sand from there on, all cemented tight, with essentially nil porosity. That sand sequence could make one hell of an oil/gas reservoir, but the petroleum would have be there before sand became cemented. You can see tight sands like that offshore in the Gulf, too, you know.

619 've heard rumblings of an impending shortage of meat... Why just meat and not other comestibles -- a bit of knife-twisting for the meat-loving demographic??
Posted by: Zettai Roshia-no Asetto at May 05, 2020 11:51 PM (7WaWV)


Many meet processing plants are shut down because of the high number of infected workers.

Many of said plants are owned by Chinese corporations and have unsanitary company housing.

When animals are ready to go to market, the rancher/farmer will loose money for every further day that they have to feed the animal with no increase in the price they will get for selling it to the butcher.

After a few weeks, they simply slaughter the animals.

If I could drive a truck, I would be tempted to see if any farmer would consider taking a tax / charity donation for giving the meet to the zoos.

But I can barely drive an SUV - too wide.

622 Warden Kate Brown of Oregon:

On May 1, Brown said some areas of the state could start reopening May 15 but added "physical distancing will remain part of our lives until we have the security of a vaccine or treatment for this disease."

Remember when the justification for the shutdowns was merely "flattening the curve"?

And now Warden Brown admits that the state will shut down until there is "a vaccine or treatment for this disease". And if it turns out that there is no vaccine or treatment for this disease, well, Oregon will just stay shut down forever.

I can tell you the exact day I started to HATE the media.

Oct. 25, 1983.

Beirut Lebanon.

We were still pulling survivors out of the Marine barracks, carefully digging down.

Me and three others had a tunnel going down, carefully removing debris.

I had taken a wheelbarrow of debris away, and came back to see some Female reporter, on camera, standing at the side of our little tunnel, close enough to cause it to cave in and drop debris on my friends.

My best friend Jim, probably saved me from prison, as I was going to kill the bitch, but he PHYSICALLY intervened, and grabbed me.

She, to this day, probably has NO CLUE as to what she was doing.

That morning I was not working. At the time I was selling new homes and it was my day off. I had the Today show on in my room as I prepared my son's breakfast to get him off to school. As he was eating, I went back in my room to watch. Wow I thought.......that is quite a spectacular new movie. Until I understood it was real. I hugged my son and took him to school because I didn't want to be afraid.

But I came back to the house and watched the whole terrorism unfold. And at about 10am Mst.....the media started blaming America.

I have not looked back!

being valid at a certain point? That's still me the day after the
expiration. Nothing about it is now false.
==============================
Well, it's like this. The penalties for selling alcohol or tobacco products to a minor are so punitive that clerks stick to the letter of the law, which includes the exclusion of expired drivers licenses, expired state-issued ID cards, and expired passports as forms of valid ID. An underaged kid with an expired license is a classic enforcement trap. Corporate policies also include carding everyone under the age of 30. Some require ID for people under 40, and there's a separate enforcement regime for that.

My first revelation came when I was around 11-12 years old. The Vietnam War was the lead topic on the Big 3 nightly 30-minute network news (6:30 p.m. my local east coast supper-time). They used to have a weekly body count summary, either on a Monday or a Friday. Sometime around 1968 or so, I was watching the count one week and noticed it was something like US casualties were 142 or 378 while we killed 5,000 or 10,000 enemy. Now I was pretty good at math in my youth. I asked myself, 'Well, if we're killing 5 to 10 thousand of the enemy a week and 'only' losing a couple of hundred a week, this war should be over'. I may have never heard the word 'attrition' at that age, but I sure understood the concept.

The media has been a gaslighting operation since before I was born. Just ask General Sherman: "I hate newspapermen. They come into camp and pick up their camp rumors and print them as facts. I regard them as spies, which, in truth, they are. If I had my choice I would kill every reporter in the world, but I am sure we would be getting reports from Hell before breakfast."

That 'from hell' list includes Uncle Walter the Commie 'The War is Over' Cronkite, Dan 'The TANG Memo is Real' Rather, and so many, many more. The whole COVID-1984 reporting has been one huge gaslighting operation, aided and abetted by all the Karen governors padding the numbers because they enjoy keeping their fashionable hob-nailed boots on our necks.

Renting freezer space, FTW.

I was going to buy a side of beef, suitably post-processing. Yeah, going for the whole steer now, with room left over for deer, pig, fish, poultry.

I'll get the beef in about three or four weeks. First three weeks, hanging in the 32.5 degree fridge, for aging.

Then, as the butcher is able to run it under the knives and saws.

My across the street neighbor's parents run about 6,000 acres in N.E. Texas. Cattle operation.

I'm getting a very nice price on a steer, and it'll be slaughtered right there at their local USDA inspected butcher shop.

China and their onshore/offshore/onshore "processing", can kiss my grizzled, Texas ass.

China is asshoe.

I'm a magnitude of order worse. I'm a Texan, and a mightily angered one, at that.

721 I was never very political when I was younger, but then I started working at Focus on the Family in the 90s. Dr. Dobson was sounding the alarm about Clinton's shenanigans with China and critiquing Jocelyn Elders attempts at sexualizing the nation's children.

Then I noticed that news stories about FOF were false and defamatory. I was in a position to know whether or not they were true.

During that time I participated in several large events that were covered by the media. Even though at one of the events, I personally spoke with the reporter, her description of the event was completely divorced from reality.

For another event, Colorado Springs residents lined Academy Blvd, which is a belt halfway around the city, in support of life and adoption. Miles and miles of people with signs saying things like "Adoption - - the Loving Option." The newspaper made it look like fewer than a dozen were there.

731 Another media revelation for me was in 2002/03: The Invasion of Iraq. I had read the NYTimes daily for decades and this one morning, I was sitting in my office eating breakfast, reading the paper and cursing up a storm. My one staff person came in looking perplexed. I then showed her the front page of the Slimes and how ever single headline was negative in wording, tone or both. Every single damn one and there were like 8 articles or so on the front page.

The Jayson Blair "scandal" in 2003, with the four full-page "corrections" on a Sunday, sealed the deal on my ceasing reading the NYSlimes. I remember reading some of Blair's columns, though I didn't know they were his. One I particularly remembered was his story on Jessica Lynch's family. He described being on the family's front porch in West Virginia and looking out over the tobacco fields; he had to get that redneck/hillbilly dig in. Now I have family in West By God and knew damn well there were no fucking tobacco fields in that part of the country. The tobacco fields were in my neck of the woods, Eastern Virginia south of the James River.

I had never heard of the Gell-Mann Amnesia Effect, but I had succumbed to it up until that Jayson Blair corrections point.

Why hide it?

I'm a Romantic, a poet who hides behind a style of writing that borders on such, a classicist, maybe a bit of the much maligned Renaissance Man.

Far more of a lover than a fighter, and very recluctant fighter, at that.

But once over the tipping point, the blood runs far more cold, than hot.

And that, I think, is the difference.

I'll do what has to be done, and press ahead until it IS.

Yanks in WW1 and WW2 were feared by the Krauts. Not because of bagpipes (Brits), or yells (French).

But because Yanks just pressed on into the attack, silently, remorselessly and effectively.

BE. THE. YANK.

Skip the theatrics.

In 1999, I lost my Administrative Assistant to breast cancer.

She was 27. The Fiancee she left behind was beyond, devastated.

Highest Honor I've ever been paid, was to serve as one of her pallbearers. Even though I was still in a cast from a '98 motorcycle wreck.

I carried her casket from the foot said casket. Best I could do, given my gimp.

The weight was light.

The burden, immense.

God Bless You, fellow Moron.

ALL of the fellowship, and embrace.

765 So "Marriage Story" I am 50 minutes in, and I will opine. In fact I should write movie reviews 50 minutes in, that would be my gimmick. I've stopped a few movies I was enjoying too much, because I wanted to delay a second half that didn't live up to the anticipation.

The New York culture is not LA culture. I know these two places are like megaphones that can be heard all over the world.

The lawyer characters here have dominated the plot, and they are scummy as hell. This movie would scare people away from divorcing.

Adam Driver is odd looking and has a large frame.

We understand one other, sir.

Three times, I have looked across the sights of a pistol at another human being.

Thanks be to God, three times, my commands to "drop it" or "freeze" were obeyed. I've never once had to pull a trigger in such an event.

But I'll always remember this. My sight picture was perfect, my breathing was correct, and my situational awareness, including my preripheral, was intact.

I knew exactly where my bullet would impact.

But I'm HAPPY though, that it never was called upon to do so.

That "HAPPY", I think, is what might separate me from the TRUE sociopath?

Otherwise, a difference without distinction?

773 >> And of Royal Provenance?

From the DM article I read, they arranged the sale anonymously, so it wasn't know it was of royal provenance. The pair went for around 50K pounds. But the new owner learned afterwards they belonged to Harry. So I assume he could sell them at quite a premium.

I'm looking at Purdey's web site. The waiting time for a firearm is 18 - 24 months. These things are for aristocratic and wealthy big White Hunter types.

My jaw hangs agape looking at their product.

Many of the comments at the DM were about good that Harry got rid of his evil guns, but boo on Meggie for p-whipping him. Idiots.

774 After meat which part of the food supply chain starts to show signs of deterioration? Last week a group of farmers gave away 20 tons if potatoes in 20lb bags. They're going to do it again. The market for potatoes has cratered. Those were potatoes destined for the grocery store (home use). The bulk of the market is restuarant/institutional. That market is destroyed. Currently there are 3 billion lbs of potatoes in storage and there is virtually no storage capacity available. Potatoes have a definite shelf life and those currently in storage are at the tail end of that shelf life. Several days ago there was a picture in the local rag of a farmer plowing under 240 acres of spuds. The dohat. minoes in the food supply chain, if they haven't fallen yet, are tipping. If things continue and we start to see toilet paper panuc version 2.0 then the Karens of the world will disappear in a heartbeat. They will be right next to you fighting for those last 2 cans of beans. Pray it doesn't come to that. The absolute stupidity of the asshoes in our state capitals is historical.

She raped him then, on the price of the guns.

We're talking a million pounds, or more, each.

And if your or me was to contract to buy a Purdy?

Somewhere in that process, and it's included in the price of the gun. We're flying to Olde Blighty, on British Airways, First Class.

Hoteled at the finest, and transported by chauffeured Rolls Royce to the Purdy works.

We'll be "fitted" with a "try" gun. And shoot it on their clays courses, until they alter the "fitments" so that we mount the gun PERFECTLY on target, time after time after time, again.

Then they'll fly us home. Where we'll wait another year or so, for the final gun to be shipped to our FFL.

You don't "buy" a Purdy.

It's even beyond "investment". It damn well borders on a marriage, and many a divorce has proved this to be so.

Law enforcement isn't the military. How many cops are going to jump up and man the 30 cal after their buddy just had his head removed by some guy with an 06 from 300 yards. Effective tool for intimidating the peasants with clubs and baseball bats but some of us are a bit more prepared.

842 If anything, this Dem Panic has put a major spotlight on the flaws of nursing homes. Now to be clear, they are part of our culture, there is no denying that. You don't want your kids giving up their future to care for you in your illness. OTOH, there is something off about sending people who have lived great lives and accomplished so much to some random place under the care or random people. It is a sad system in many ways though we have not found a better alternative.

There was a time when an older daughter or whomever was designated to care for the decrepit. There are also other cultures where the elderly live with the family and are cared for. Our culture focuses on the earning years from 30-50. You have to make it then or you are in big trouble. Many have large families and can't exactly follow an Alzheimer's patient around ten hours a day.

Everyone thinks the real issue here is wuhan. But I keep seeing nursing homes as the issue. I have heard so many horror stories about that that it is absurd. I have never heard from a single person in the medical field that recommended a nursing home other than as the last resort.

I wish I had an answer here, but at least I am asking the right question.

I asked the same question here one day about Nancy Pelosi. She's, what like 120 years old, and yet her face is often shiny. Post-menopausal women in their twilight (or in Nancy's case, midnight) years do not have oily skin.

Some commenter said that it may be a side effect of facial Botox injections, which can cause oiliness. So maybe that is what is going on with Herr Half-Whit's face too.

873 842 If anything, this Dem Panic has put a major spotlight on the flaws of nursing homes. Now to be clear, they are part of our culture, there is no denying that. You don't want your kids giving up their future to care for you in your illness. OTOH, there is something off about sending people who have lived great lives and accomplished so much to some random place under the care or random people. It is a sad system in many ways though we have not found a better alternative.

There was a time when an older daughter or whomever was designated to care for the decrepit. There are also other cultures where the elderly live with the family and are cared for. Our culture focuses on the earning years from 30-50. You have to make it then or you are in big trouble. Many have large families and can't exactly follow an Alzheimer's patient around ten hours a day.

Everyone thinks the real issue here is wuhan. But I keep seeing nursing homes as the issue. I have heard so many horror stories about that that it is absurd. I have never heard from a single person in the medical field that recommended a nursing home other than as the last resort.

I wish I had an answer here, but at least I am asking the right question.
Posted by: Quint at May 06, 2020 05:55 AM (hHxp2)



I think what some have said here is absolutely true. It's not the nursing homes so much as that you have removed the people that make sure the elderly are being taken care of. Their kids and even other visitors. You aren't giving them that connection for one. And you also don't have them coming in and raising a stink when nana isn't getting the care she is supposed to be getting from their shit staff. And that can even help the people there that don't get the regular visitors as well.

I bet that was a great time! I want to go to Scotland too for the whisky and golf.

I started enjoying cider in London. No doubt beer is more popular there but most pubs also have cider on draft. Today many American bars have cider but I am talking 20+ years ago. When I came back to America I kept asking for cider but no one had it on draft. Then all of a sudden the gluten free thing started and people started to ask for cider.

I know in the UK and Spain they have crap cider that the under age types get plastered on. But those two countries also have some of the best cider in the world. I believe the UK is still the largest cider consuming nation by a long shot.

If you really want to try some high end stuff, go for an English farmhouse cider, a French farmhouse cider from the region they make Calvodos, or a Spanish traditional cidre. The English stuff is hard to get, I am talking the real stuff. Even the Crispin Brownslane is ok to try "dry cider". It is not as good as it used to be but it will give you an idea of the style.

The French stuff is really good stuff. Try a bottle of Ettiene Dupont. It is not more than $12 a bottle and it is very much worth it. It is still sweet but you get the barnyard funk that comes with artisenal French cider. It is well worth trying.

The Spanish stuff is really another world. I am talking the Basque and Asturian traditional cider. They have been making this stuff the same way for over four hundred years and likely longer than that. Now this stuff is very much an acquired taste. If you like sour beers you might like it. This stuff is not just dry, it is sour. But you can taste the hundreds of years of cider apples and the history. The USA is just starting to grow cider apples again as the product is not popular. They tore down the cider trees during prohibition.

anytime my man. I like to advocate for things I am passionate about. Cider is one of those things. I have told the story here before that Johnny Appleseed would have been considered to be a bootlegger by today's standards. He wasn't planting those apple trees so kids could give an apple to the teacher. Apples were for cider and cider meant hard cider. Only in America do you have to say "hard cider" to mean the boozy stuff. They got rid of the cider apples during prohibition and made a market in eating apples.

Early Americans like the Founders loved cider. They had little luck with wine grapes and had to go with what worked here. There is a John Adams quote about yesterdays, bread, today's cheese, and last year's cider. I can find it a the moment and I realize quotes are kind of shaky in general.

888 >>> The USA is just starting to grow cider apples again as the product is not popular. They tore down the cider trees during prohibition.

Sometimes I run into old farmsteads that have been reclaimed by the forest. It would be interesting to see what kind of apples were growing, but that would be a huge amount of work to get the trees to put out fruit again.

There is a spot in western NH where someone maintains the trees, probably for bear hunting.

897 Have mentioned here before that I'm thrilled with the way that mom's assisted care facility has kept the WuFlu at bay. She's in a very nice home. We had to move her from her last one due to lax cleaning standards.
However, two months in I have seen a change in her. She suffers and has suffered from depression for decades. She's starting to crack emotionally. Almost 2 months of only seeing nursing staff and aides and this week her doctor. Meals have been delivered to her apartment for the last 6 weeks. She's allowed to walk in the halls wearing a mask and if the weather is good she go out on a balcony or outside.
I haven't seen her since the lockdown. When I spoke to her nurse on Sunday after she had a bad night the nurse told me she is seeing this in other residents. They miss their loved ones, their friends, their lives. What's the answer, I don't know. By and large the deaths in OH are in her age group. Is living like this really living? I hope they can find a way to ease things a bit. Maybe allow one family member in if they are masked and gloved after a temperature check. Mom's anti depressant is being increased and hopefully it will help. But it's not the answer to what is happening.

Oh they're black. But they're also the type that will look down on other black people. If Michelle were a lighter complexion they would certainly be the type to use the "brown paper bag" association standard. I can even remember the first time I saw that.

Basically black on black racism. If your skin tone is darker than a brown paper bag then you're no good or whatever. I think I'm the Sinbad episode it was about joint some black country club and the daughter had learned it and the son was darker and so he wasn't good enough.

"Historically black colleges and universities have been experts at distancing themselves from painful elements of their cultural past. One of those elements — the brown paper bag admissions test.

Propagated as urban legend but a real practice for some of our most reputable HBCU campuses, light complexion was once an admission qualification for college enrollment, and fraternity and sorority membership. The best candidates were as light as or lighter than the hue of a brown paper bag, ruler or other inanimate object brought to life with the task of adjudicating ethnic acceptance."

Texas is still a Red State but I wonder how long that will last. As a native Texan I have my issues with the place. In some ways the lack of state control bit them in the ass. The cities are all deep blue. Not some of them, but all of them. San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, Austin, etc are all deep blue. And those cities have power the state government should have reigned in long ago. That was a tactical error.

If we lose Texas the whole thing is over really. The states that really piss me off are Kentucky and PA. Why did they vote Trump but still keep voting Dem? Are they stupid?

Not surprising given that is is the same state that gave us "Boston Strong" after gladly shutting down a city to look for two pathetic, scared terrorists on the run.

992 There are lots of cops and I suppose there's a fraction, likely not large, that are power-crazed jerks while most just do their jobs responsibly.

We had an interesting local one here in southern Vermont a few years back. He was known for being, shall we say, a stickler for the law. Once he even wrote a speeding ticket on his own mother, and he also ticketed state police if they were going too fast but not in the performance of their duties.

you know what though, i'm perfectly ok with that. if he's going to enforce the law on everyone, i REALLY don't have an issue with it.

as long as he doesn't power trip while doing it.

I'm sticking with 10K killed from the virus, tops.

And we get another Great Depression from the equivalent of annual AIDS deaths that have been happening for decades.

Yay.

I posted a comment yesterday showing that the CDC has two different pages where they cite different numbers for deaths.

One was "provisional death count" (39,000) and the other was "confirmed and probable death count" (68,000).

You can guess which one the media has been running with the entire time.

29,000 "probable" deaths, apparently.

994 So I'm clear, I think we'll have 100K+ deaths *because* of the virus, from car wrecks to suicides to obesity and cancer complications.

But COVID-19 and pneumonia < 10K

996 I thought James Woods just twatted something to Mooch about her calling herself America's 'Forever First Lady.' He basically told her to get a grip.


That's rich considering her statement that she's never been proud of her country.

aren't those the other way around? but yeah, I've noticed that a lot of my friends were noticing that over this past weekend.

curious that we haven't heard anything official on it recently.

The government has deemed my business non-essential so I'm winding it down (at least as far as employees go) so I really don't care anymore what I say to clients. Yesterday I was talking to one in Massachusetts and the discussion turned to the protests at the state house. I told him that was all well and good but that nothing was going to change until a bit more force was applied by the protesters on the elected officials. Much to my surprise this client agreed and followed up with "I need to get my big guns back from my son". I was very surprised and quite happy by that response.

1005 970 So far Mexico has about 2500 corona deaths with no social distancing or shutdown. Compared to the Spanish flue it is a rounding error. "

I've been posting for 6 weeks now, watch what happens in Mexico, because they aren't doing shit to prepare. If this is some huge infectious terror, millions were going to die in Mexico, BUT - if it turns out that Mexico does nothing at all to prepare, and nothing happens - then this is all just a big pile of hype and NONE of fhese measures we've taken are justified.

nothing has happened in Mexico - a few people got sick, a few less died. Just like every other flu season, nothing more.

Murder up about 60% in unincorporated parts of
harris county and Judge Hildago (fuck her) is worried about mask and
stay at home.

whenever I think about Harris County I think about Urban Cowboy. It was not long ago but that Houston is dead and buried. I won't say more as I don't want to aggravate anyone. It is not just Houston it is happening everywhere. We kept talking about the theory of lefty dominance but at some point it actually happened and the theory became real.

Trump might win again, but even if he does the opposition and resistance will only go up ten fold. If Trump is the only one willing to fight, why is that? We normals have given up so much. There was the idea of a lefty take over but then it actually happened. The Trump win was almost an anomaly from my stand point. I want to see small government, maximum liberty folk winning on a regular basis.

1009 "CBS This Morning" Executive Producer Diana Miller gave an interview to her parent company's website Viacom.com' where she said the morning TV news show was making its coverage of the COVID-19 pandemic a priority.

"Whenever you're chasing a story that's developing, there are threads that emerge. Focusing on first responders has been important for us because they are on the frontlines, and it's important we're showing the reality of the situations they are in every day," she said.

"We've always been driven by the news and want to provide context and clarity on the important stories of the day," Miller said.
