The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen. Winston Churchill

Quote II

It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things. Theodore Roosevelt


Quote III

When you have a dream that you can't let go of, trust your instincts and pursue it. But remember: Real dreams take work, They take patience, and sometimes they require you to dig down very deep. Be sure you're willing to do that. Harvey Mackay

Church registration? What's next, mandatory waiting periods?

NEWSTYRANNY: Kansas City is Now Requiring Churches to Keep Lists of People Entering ChurchesPublished 1 day ago on May 5, 2020By Jose Nino

New reopening guidelines in Kansas City that require churches to keeps “lists” of attendees have worried advocates of religious freedoms in the area, according to a report from Metro Voice.

Mayor Quinton Lucas enacted the policy where houses of worship receive the same treatment as “non-essential” businesses when it comes to keeping information of those who attend a service or anyone who enters the building.

“Never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined Nazi-like measures designed to surveil, track and spy upon what was once a free American people,” declared Liberty Council, founder and Chairman Matt Staver. “That is exactly what Kansas City’s misguided government officials are now demanding.”


As a Christian I want everyone to be saved. I'm having trouble with this concept at the moment.

Bound and Gagged by the Bugmen - We cannot build a better America without a common language with the capacity to inspire it. “Bug language” only debases and defeats us.


Do you speak Bug? Do you know its diction and syntax? Do you recognize its cant, the clicks and stridulations?

If you are reading this, you almost certainly do. You are, more likely than not, well-versed in its rhetoric. Bug is a second language for you. The superstratum of the hyper-educated class to which you belong. It is a language you need to survive here, to effectuate your role in the “knowledge” economy. Bug is the lingua franca of globohomo.

This couple is really hawt and Genius Award Winners!

MAY 1--A Florida Woman is facing a felony charge after a video call with her imprisoned boyfriend turned very raunchy, prompting a criminal probe helmed by an investigator identified in court records as “Detective Assmann.”

According to a probable cause affidavit, Noelle Rascati, 32, engaged in a late-March “virtual visit” with Tathan Fields, a 26-year-old locked up in the Santa Rosa County jail. The duo’s video encounter allegedly “became extremely sexual.”

During a law enforcement review of Fields’s jailhouse calls, an investigator “came across” the March 25 video call between the inmate and Rascati. Court filings do not reveal what prompted the review, which was conducted by Detective Assmann with the local sheriff’s office.

Fields is serving a 15-year sentence on burglary and grand theft charges. While incarcerated, he has been charged with masturbating during a prison class taught by a female instructor and mailing a hoax weapon of mass destruction (both cases are pending). In the latter matter, Fields is accused of mailing letter purporting to contain anthrax to the Santa Rosa prosecutor’s office.

Whoa! It's Neil Young! Behind the right click!


I'm just gonna start something, right here.

I like Neil Young as a musician. He has been cranking it out for 50 years now. Alone or with his 3 buddies, he stands the test of time.

But as a person, he's a Young Richard.

And he is so anti-American, why, it's like he wasn't born here or something. Unlike DeNiro however, I can still watch his work.

Anyone have some Molson's and some Grade A Amber maple syrup? Suddenly I have a hankering.

Regarding the above story about the church and the listmaking...

Martyrdom has a long and glorious tradition in the church. I'm not asking or even expecting anyone to be boiled alive but the churches need to start giving those pigs the finger. If they get arrested? Fuck it. It's not like they're gonna get shot.

Fuck the State!

47 Axl Rose is having a Twatter spat with Mnuchin.

Let's look at the stats for these intellectual contenders:

Rose: high school dropout, screeches into a microphone for a living, had a couple of hit records 40 years ago.


Mnuchin: degree in economics from Yale, has headed several successful large investment groups.

Perhaps Rose should limit his comments to fields in which he has actual expertise, such as alcoholism, heroin addiction, herpes, and taking 35 years to record a shit album.

Who have we, by dint of great self-discipline, restrained ourselves from slaughtering, today?

Did some grocery shopping up the road at H.E.B. today.

Less than half, wearing masks. Of those? Fully 20% with the mask worn under the nose.

One brilliant bint, with it worn in the James Hardin's Beard position.

I had my mask, too. Out in the car.

Man, if a swarm of Murder Hornets had invaded the store, I would've been screwed!

An example of the free market system at it's best...
A local farmer, Ashton IL, couldn't sell his hogs to the usual processors. So his wife put out an offer on Facebook to sell them at $100 per hog if you picked them up.

He sold out, had calls from all over. It was basically his production cost, usually he's getting something like $150 per hog. It was this or killing them and burying them. I think this guy might be a Moron.

As a Christian I want everyone to be saved. I'm having trouble with this concept at the moment.


Scripture tell us in our anger, do not sin. It doesn't tell us that we shouldn't get angry. This admonition is what has been traveling around my head amongst the squirrel panel discussions. We have almost arrived at the level of China. You may worship at a state approved church. My wife and I have been meeting with some friends/neighbors on Sundays for dinner and bible study. We are entertaining the idea of expanding that to a home church. As my neighbor said, the idea of ushers with an AR sounds attractive right about now.

Caught a little bit of the discussion in the last thread about Fauci's patents or lack thereof. I can't begin to fathom all of the Byzantine shell-gaming in those rules.

But here's one thing I do understand... there is only single purpose to the US Federal government in the modern era: to enrich and empower the Democrat Party, and to a lesser degree, it's GOP hangers-on. Any other result of its activity is accidental, or coincidental. It is an absolutely pure State and Party machine system.

And if you rise to Fauci's level in it, you're part of the scheme and you're richly rewarded for it. It's why if you are a high-ranking government official, your word is dogshit as far as I'm concerned, unless and until you prove otherwise. Which they nearly never do. If anything they usually prove me insufficiently cynical.

About the same. Employees are REQUIRED to wear masks. At least one quarter of the employees were wearing them below the nose, another quarter were not wearing them at all, however some may have been off the clock and kibitzing with the others.

Robert Barr comments from Mueller Report Presser:

"But before I do that, I want to thank Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein for joining me here today and for his assistance and counsel
throughout this process. Rod has served the Department of Justice for many years with dedication and distinction, and it has been a great
privilege and pleasure to work with him since my confirmation. He had well-deserved plans to step back from public service that I interrupted by
asking him to help in my transition. Rod has been an invaluable partner, and I am grateful that he was willing to help me and has been able to see
the Special Counsel's investigation to its conclusion. Thank you, Rod."

The Payne Stewart crash happened in 1999, before the 9/11, so those jets had no intention of shooting him down.

The probable cause of the crash was the plane had a pressurization failure, so as it climbed...the pilots passed out from lack of oxygen.

There are many systems in place to prevent this from happening normally.

However...those systems failed...leading to the tragedy and crash.

309 I do love the irony of those digital road signs telling everyone not to text and drive.

I believe the actual data is that texting isn't any more dangerous then other league stuff people do in their cars - play with the radio, do their makeup, eat salad - except with the younger cohort.


Many states banned younger people from texting/using phones while driving at first but I think most states have banned or are about to ban any use by anyone of a phone while driving.

I saw it on cable news. It is fairly well established that they were gone but the plane kept going and the news was on it.

I saw Payne play live. He had a really nice old school swing. We all know he wore the plus fours as they were his trademark. I remember at one point the NFL paid him a bunch of money to wear a uniform that had the local team's colors and logo wherever he was playing.

333 Denver's problem was that he was doing touch and goes in a Rutan Long-EZ built by someone else and had depleted the fuel in the aircraft during the flight to the airport and the subsequent touch and goes. The original owner assembled it with the fuel selector switch in a location that Burt Rutan had not intended. Instead of between the legs, it was over the left shoulder and had substantial resistance to being switched. To compound the problem, the fuel gauge was behind the pilot's seat and not visible to the person at the controls.

I'm happy to report that the lid has been closed during the past three days. I think the growing number of dead bugs that get trapped inside the box had something to do with it. *snicker*

More good news: The bedroom radio has been free of NPR since she began to work from home. No longer do I have to wake up angry. (Although I admit I used it as a source of intelligence about the enemy.)

I'm sure she hasn't changed her views on anything and that the old pattern will return when she begins to work in her office again. For now, I'm enjoying the respite.

Hands down not even close, worst concert I ever attended. Aerosmith. Twice. Shame on me the second time. The second concertcame complete with empty liquor bottles being thrown at the stage after Tyler basically said F you to the audience.

My favorite story of Tyler was when he was still doing his drug benders. He was with a member of the band in a hotel room, heard some song on the radio and said they should do that song. The band member said, 'That's us, you asshole.'

I shared at a poker forum elsewhere a few weeks back that when live poker comes back to casinos, there's unfortunately gonna be a lot of changes that will likely change the feel of the game a lot. Namely:

- Masks required for everyone

- Gloves possibly required too... or, only dealers will be allowed to handle chips

- Max 6 players per table; no more 9-10 people per

- Lots of breaks for cleaning everything, including chips, cards and shuffle machines

Oh, yes. I still like to smack dat ass. Hopefully they know I've been effing them.

I reach out and fuck them in their ass with a 12 inch girthy donkey dick at least annually for their sins.


Two of my platoon committed suicide within the next year. The rest of my mechanics (2 post soldiers of the year, and one post NCO of the year, one Sgt. Morales candidate) all ETS-ed mid career. The rest, kind of stayed mentally in SWA and never came home again. My duty to those troops is to make the command and their enabling staff regret ever deciding to f*ck with me or my troops.

There is no hell hot enough for those ashoe.

And that is the Apollo Root Cause of my deep seated hatred and anger at people that think they should rule me (and those I care for).

I bought a Gambling Times magazine as a kid a good 20 years before the poker boom. They kept talking about Texas Hold'em but i didn't know what they meant. I thought it must be a game were you get dealt the cards and just hold them. I played five card draw back then with my buddies.

424 Quint, yup, I wish I had known about it then too.

Hold'em was pushed and eventually became most popular because unlike most traditional poker games (draw and stud), it has *four* betting rounds. Trad games usually only have two.

The belief was that the larger pots and increased suspense would help build up interest in the game, and it worked, at least from 1998 to about 2004.

Poker isn't nearly as popular anymore as it was during that time, and I don't know if it'll ever be that popular again, but I still have a lot of good memories and had a ton of fun, even if I lost a lot of money way back when.

443 Poker isn't nearly as popular anymore as it was
during that time, and I don't know if it'll ever be that popular again,
but I still have a lot of good memories and had a ton of fun, even if I
lost a lot of money way back when.

understood. It went the way of the cigar boom that I believe preceded it by a year or so. The games got too hard really and people got sick of losing. No way is it like it was then. We can still remember the days of celebrity poker though

445 Worst concert I ever went to was a DMX concert. Opening acts were unremarkable, a fight broke out between some chicks while a dude refereed and almost started another fight with people trying to break it up and DMX showed up drunk, late did he his set and bounced.

Posted by: BlackOrchidInCaptivity at May 06, 2020 11:38 PM (j9HX3)


Mandatory in all stores. Outdoors not mandatory as far as I know. But supposedly there is some exception if you medically can't wear a mask? I don't know how you prove that though. I have no idea what the compliance factor is, to be honest. I haven't been in a store for the past two weeks, when I went to WalMart and had a panic attack from all the new "rules". So, Mr D is kind enough to run all the errands for me.
Who knows what this idiot governor will do in the future though, he's in cahoots with your guy and Murphy and Cuomo etc. He's a fucking moron.

459 The Payne Stewart crash happened in 1999, before the 9/11, so those jets had no intention of shooting him down.

The probable cause of the crash was the plane had a pressurization failure, so as it climbed...the pilots passed out from lack of oxygen.

There are many systems in place to prevent this from happening normally.

However...those systems failed...leading to the tragedy and crash.
Posted by: El Jefe at May 06, 2020 10:58 PM (Ae67h)

October 25, 1999.

When they figured out something was wrong was when the plane was way off course and I am sure ATC found the plane unresponsive. So some ANG jets were scrambled to check it out. The pilots radioed back that the windows were iced over from the inside, and with that, it was all too clear what happened. Mr. Stewart's plane was followed clear up to ND, where it ran out of fuel, and crashed in a field. When it did so, there was no fire, because the fuel tanks were that used up at that point.

Most of the poker books i've read have been how-to books by the likes of Sklansky, Mike Caro and Lou Krieger.

Posted by: qdpsteve at May 06, 2020 11:39 PM (L2ZTs)

Sure I get that. Sklansky wrote the "bible" along with Doyle's book. Sklansky could not write a lick but what he did write was pretty important. The books I mentioned were non fiction and just for fun. They were both good as I recall.

I even read one about Asian poker players in Maryland at one point. I think that was an e-book but even that was a decent read. I guess I was in the weeds at that point.

472 John Denver bought an experimental aircraft that had the fuel tank selector valve in a non-standard place. It was hard to reach and required some practice to become familiar with it's location and operation. this type of thing is not unusual for experimental aircraft in that it's up to the builder to do what they think appropriate. He didn't become familiar with his aircraft before he flew it and paid the ultimate price. Sad.
There was a big law suit afterward by his family against the builder and I'm not sure of the outcome, but I don't think it turned out well for the builder.
This case was the primary reason why I took apart my aircraft that I built from blueprints for 3 plus effin years and sold the parts rather than sell it to some numbnuts that couldn't bother himself to learn his aircraft before he flew it.

Aerosmith was way, way better when they were shooting up. As soon as they cleaned up and became an act more concerned with how much airplay they could get on MTV, it was over. I'll listen to what they did when they were on drugs, but not after.

Worst concert I ever attended? Metallica. 1997. The tour after they released Load of Shit. They did medleys of their older songs - fine, I get there wanting to play their newer material, but damn, don't do that to the songs that made you great! The worst part was when they played the first two verses of Master of Puppets. This here headbanger had waited for eternity to see this played live, but right when they got to the part where the long instrumental portion is supposed to take place...they stopped the song. WTF???? And it seemed like they were doing everything to get out of playing. Oh, how it sucked.

Here in New COVID City, masks are mandatory, with a nice little exception for walking your dog on your block; I haven't figured out yet how they would know if you walked two blocks from home, though. (That tells you how serious this shit is; DemPanic is the correct term.) I only pull my mask out of my pocket and put in on outside any store where I have to shop (grocery, pharmacy, etc.). Have had more than a few Karens scold me as I walked to said stores and to whom I've had to extend my middle finger as a response.

523 For those of you who, like I, cannot or will not wear a mask: The governors had to make exceptions because some of us can't breathe well. It is a HIPAA violation to require anyone to disclose a medical condition, so nobody can force you to wear a mask or tell them why you can't.

I found this business card type of thing that I am considering printing out so I can hand it to anone who gets aggressive. It helps to have the info on it that the fine for demanding that one disclose info is over $90,000 for a first violation.

Zeppelin '75, in the Coliseum, was the best. Over 4 hours, no warm-up band, 4 curtain calls.

As all other tours, the opening song was "Rock and Roll". And there was a 45 minute version of "Dazed and Confused". Kashmir was new then, and also played.

Posted by: PennaLady at May 07, 2020 12:16 AM (8HBLI)

Anyone who appreciates that work of art is welcome.

Back in HS I hung out with a fellow headbanger at a bus stop and we'd BS about everything before getting on board. One morning we was talking Zeppelin in a huge way and I was curious about them. He wanted to check out a Primus album I got, and I wanted to check out some Zeppelin he put on cassette. Deal. We had early dismissal from school, and he swung by my house. I tossed him my Primus cassette, and he tossed me his Zeppelin tape, cued up for "Kashmir". I went to my room, put on my headphones, dropped the tape in...
I was blown completely away. I kept rewinding the tape to the beginning, and played it again, and again, and again. This was 2:30 in the afternoon. I was still at it, at 9 pm. Even when I had to go to a dental appointment, I cued the tape, and asked my mother if I could jam to it on the way to the dentist. She was no Zeppelin fan but she was very much into music so she let me play it on the car stereo. It was all "Kashmir", all the time.

Here's hoping Mickey D's gets rid of those germ-infested in-store ordering kiosks. And grocery stores get rid of 'self-checkout' lines/machines. Even though I'm doing the job of an employee, I don't get paid to use a self-checkout in a grocery store. Now if there was some sort of automatic discount, I'd be more inclined to use them. Note: I said more inclined, though that is subject change at a moment's notice.

We both know this but I was amazed, and still am, at the number of people who see me out and about (especially outside of TX) who will comment on how boring the Spurs are. Never mind the big three and the amazing coaching that takes the role-players' games up several notches. Never mind the way the Spurs sliced and diced with their passing and scheming. Never mind the many ways they devised to crush their opponents.

610 Used to go to a game at the old Forum in Montreal, and a game at Le Colisee in Quebec City, most every year, as part of a winter sports trip to both cities.

Whole thing was great. In Montreal there were still a fair number of fans in the lower/best seats in coat/tie.

Loved the game announcements in French.

Favorites were the penalties for fighting ("le combat"), and roughing ("le rudesse").

One game in Montreal was against the Nordiques. Incredible energy in the building.

Old, local story about Led Zeppelin.

In 1969, the first album not yet released, Zep opened for The Doors in an outdoor venue with a stage near Woodinville called the Gold Creek Dome, in Gold Creek Park. It was a local mini-Woodstock for the Seattle area, kinda. The name was the Seattle Pop Festival.

No, wasn't there, because I was still 13 and Woodinville was about 40 miles away.

There were over 20 bands over 3 days. Chicago Transit Authority, Chuck Berry, Ike and Tina Turner, The Flying Burrito Brothers, The Byrds, Lee Michaels, The Doors, and a dozen others. Over 50,000 people, with estimates of up to 70,000, attended. Extra food and water had to be brought in at the last minute.

Instead of using off-duty police for security, the private owner hired the local chapter of the Black Panthers. Virtually no violence was reported for the concert.

Led Zeppelin played on Sunday night, the final day, then Lee Michaels (been 14 days, since I don't know when, do you know what I mean?) before The Doors were supposed to close the show.

Zep were only supposed to play for an hour, but the crowd would not let them leave the stage and the wildly screaming fans kept bringing them back 3 times or more. Lee Michaels played a half hour, but the crowd kept yelling for LZ. He cut his show short, sensing the crowd wanted Zep instead.

Then The Doors came on, and they didn't even get through the first song, and the crowd hated them.

They booed so hard, Jim Morrison told them to fornicate many times, and walked off after the second song. Morrison's rant just got the crowd louder. Ray Manzarek, keyboard player and the band's producer, tried one more song without Morrison, then walked off with the rest of the band.

The crowd cheered for more LZ, but they were gone by then.

Chuck Barry finished the show, and the crowd cheered again.

The Seattle Pop's line-up was a mix of established acts,and native groups from the Pacific Northwest. Twenty-six musicians and groups performed at the festival. The Doors, Chuck Berry, The Byrds and The Ike & Tina Turner Revue were among the most highly-anticipated acts of the festival, but newcomers Led Zeppelin emerged as the highlight.


"Sunday night was supposed to belong to The Doors but it was stolen right out from under them by the great English blues group, Led Zeppelin," wrote the Seattle Post-Intelligencer.

I was at one of the last North Star games. In between chants of "Norm Sucks" the North Stars somehow managed to remember they could play hockey and won the game.

The problem Pro Hockey has always had in MN was all the local hockey. Really good high school and college programs which meant fans knew what good hockey should look like.

Posted by: thathalfrican - sucker free on my phone at May 07, 2020 12:27 AM (IYHxL)


That is the Truth. Ice hockey is simply too fast a sport to enjoyably watch on tv. Plus that little puck is almost impossible to watch/find on a tv screen. The disputed goal replays are nice, though, as they are magnified close-ups. I can remember going to games before that disputed goal replay existed. Led to a lot of argy-bargy on the ice, including those adorable bench-clearers which, with the new no-hitting 'flag hockey' rules, are sadly gone from the game.

I was at a preseason Rangers-Flyers game in the early '80s. There were so many game misconduct penalties from after-the-whistle antics, each team had only about 7 skaters on the bench at the end; I think the total penalty minutes was around 500 thanks to those 2 minute roughing, 5 minute fighting and game misconducts. While not an official stat, getting thrown out in the first period was counted as being 40 plus 'penalty' minutes, that is, from the time of the ejection subtracted from 60 minutes.

Good times, good times.

I disagree completely, although I concede that being at the game is much more fun. As I mentioned upthread, I used to watch on a 13" BW set. That is when I was learning about hockey. Having world-class play-by-play is essential to the enjoyment. We have been lucky to have probably the very best here in Pittsburgh.

I was in Montreal one long summer weekend. I bought an English paper and was reading the Expos box score. A home run was a (CC), not (HR), for complete circuit. French even leaked into English box scores up there.

But the Nordiques and Canadians had a helluva rivalry while the Nordiques existed. Probably better than the Toronto-Montreal rivalry because French.

A large number of those staying at home were black and hispanic. Large numbers of them live in the city housing projects which aren't much cleaner than the subways. You have to figure some weren't totally honest, and some may have stayed home but had visitors.

Then there's the "don't mention that, racist!" part. Those neighborhoods are thick with drug dealers who might make home deliveries but they operate a strictly cash business. Cash is one of the dirtiest things you can touch. Then a trip to the dealer for some is just as necessary as a trip to the grocer, and "necessary" trips are considered "staying at home"

NBA?

The expansion team, the Seattle SuperSonics. Born at the same time as the Chicago Bulls. Fall of 1967.

As an 8th grade kid growing up in Puyallup, I would listen to every game on my little transistor radio.

Tom Meschery, Bob Rule, Dick Thorn, Bobby Weiss, Walt Hazzard, Al Tucker, Dorrie Murray. Geez I surprised myself for doing that from memory.

When Howard Schultz sold out Sonics fans because Gary Payton and Sean Kemp got sick of him hanging out with them like the skinny little bitch he is, he got pissed and sold the team to OKC.

And Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels was a fat-assed bitch, negotiating in bad faith and lying to sports fans as well.

And fat-assed David Stern made sure Seattle would only get another franchise over his cold, dead body.

That was 13 years, 9 months, and 19 days ago.

The good news is that Greg Nickels was voted out of office, Howard Schultz was so burned by his hometown fans that his attempt to try for a Democrat Prez run was smacked down hard with massive on-line negative karma and it failed, and David Stern is dead now.


That's my NBA story.

1979. Yup.

A rematch of the 1978 finals with the Washington Bullets.

I still argue that if there was a 3 point line back then, Downtown Freddie Brown would still hold the 3-point record for best percentage.

It was amazing to see Brown run to the corner of the floor and cast off shot after shot, and *swish*. That shot is now a 3-point shot.

They tried to stop him by fouling him, but it did no good.

Good times.

And Fred Brown, still around Seattle, is a great man, has been involved with many causes for people down on their luck or kids looking for a break, and donates his time behind the scenes. He has been doing this for decades.

When I met him once, Fred was a kind and friendly person to this then-30 something when I ran into him at a bar one night at the base of Queen Anne hill.

Lavrenti Beria on pogo stick, FFS Graham, there was obviously no legal foundation for Mueller's appointment, it was obvious the instant it happened, and was so described by many who understand the statute and the system.

* FoxNewz online report also relays claim that "Schiff is in panic mode" over DNI declassifying House Intel hearing transcripts. OK. Guess we'll see. But the "panic" part I'll never buy. FFS, people, have you been watching for a few years? We are in a bizarre, semi-Soviet twilight zone - reckless bizarre stupid human garbage like Schiff can do literally anything they want, get "caught", and hardly anyone knows or cares about it, and he and his entire party pay zero price.

It would probably take most of that PPP money to completely buy out the Muckleshoots. How many stands are set up by the casino, maybe a couple of hundred? And then when you drive through the reservation towards Enumclaw, there are a few dozen more stand-alone stands on their own properties.

I'm guessing, but I think the Muckleshoot fireworks stand sales are even greater than the Tulalip fireworks stands north of Everett.

Which are also really big.

Apparently the NYPD union is telling them not to enforce anything because there are teams of citizens looking to draw a social distancing citation, film it, and sue the shit out of the LEO who signed it. Because the cops know there's no legal basis for any of this. So maybe try to organize something like that, and when the local cops similarly lose interest, the businesses can reopen.

Certainly the optimal outcome here is that the commie shutdown governors keep giving orders, and their media allies keep screaming, and everyone else ignores them.

723 Methos is on it here. Actually I think there has been a steady disintegration of police will to enforce the dumber aspects of lockdowns for a while - it varies tremendously, by location and circumstance.

I always expected - assuming the epidemic was not nearly as serious as feared - that this would happen. Actually I expected and still do that some states may talk stupid (as some are, right now), then fold fairly quickly under the combined weight of epidemic developments (holocaust for nursing homes, far less serious for most of society), economic pain, liberty infringement, and many states returning to normal.

Interestingly Germany has said it will return to mostly normal very soon. That country has a string of disastrously stupid self-destructive decisions going back a ways - most recently their idiotic energy de-industrialization. So it's surprising to see them not choose the self-destructive, stupid course here.

Kurt Schlicter has been ripping Meal Team Six pretty hilariously as well. "Thick blue line", he tweeted in response.

And then, he did a Joe Friday Dragnet style intro for them:

It was 11 AM, second breakfast. My partner Luther and I were working the Candy Crush detail out of Shoney's near the Interstate when the call came in. American citizens, protesting. We took our waffles, bacon, eggs, and more waffles to go and suited up.

I no longer speculate about their intelligence. I don't even know if they have an actual plan. The TP crap should have opened some eyes but I doubt it did. Some of the dominoes in the supply chain seem to be teetering. Once they start, promises and assurances from some asshoe in his mansion in the state capital won't placate frightened people. Impose martial law? That will just help with the targeting decisions. Don't take me wrong. I want this country to survive, for my kids, my grandkids, but the optimism that I have carried most my adult life is gone. I'm not the only one. Normal, taxpaying, law abiding people in my life are just one push away from responding. I fear they have miscalculated the number and courage of people.

747 No remaining confidence in the electorate, but the mishandling of this by governors in places like MI WA OR IL - in another America - could well lead to a political earthquake of 8.0 magnitude. We'll see.

Fun factoids.

Spread, expressed as reproduction rate, or R(t), of the bug, is below 1.0 (contracting, not growing) in all but 6 states, as of today - and the highest above 1.0 is 1.06 (NE).

Related - the R value for most (all?) places studied, where data is now becoming available, allowing one to back-engineer the trends, was declining (in some cases sharply) *before* lockdowns were adopted.

Doesn't mean lockdowns didn't "work", doesn't tell you the degree to which they worked, if they did - just tells you epidemic was following probably a normal path, and that it started earlier than believed.

Due to a combo of desperately wanting to avoid the ruling, and the air going out of the pandemic bag.

751 The joking thread got a late- night tut-tutting. I admit I didn't know all the details at the time and still do not. I said I still support L.E. in general and that is still the case; and I bet that is true for 90 percent of the Horde.

I think a lot of it was in jest but the idea that something was wrong was very real. That monstrous vehicle did not give the right image in the social distance or else world we now live in. These West Texans might not realize it but we expect them to be the most pro-individual, the most pro - liberty.

If we lose West Texas, we have problems. I could see this happening in Swampy areas, but that is not where we are getting it. Add-in the Dallas situation and it makes sense people went off and had a harmless laugh.

754 Oh - didn't even mention that the details of these edicts - like the 50 in church - have absolutely no basis in science or data or even common epidemiological sense (like the 6-foot rule).

And that's on the micro level.

On the macro level, literally every single policy apart from isolating infirm elderly now confronts questions that can't be answered, or at least haven't been - what are we doing, and why, at this point? It's not exactly shifted goalposts, it's more like "disappearing goalposts".

Speaking of which, I'm gonna disappear too. Almost to the end of a book which is basically the NKVD briefing file on Hitler prepared for Stalin after the war, based largely on the direct accounts of two key Hitler personal aides. It's April 23, Wenck and Steiner (Steiner!) have appeared in the narrative, if not the Government District, and bunker types are fighting over airplane seats to the Obersalzberg. Good times!

btw, I laugh that they interviewed Obama in that basketball show. Have you ever seen Obama shoot hoops? That guy is one of the least athletic presidents in history. They used to bag on Ford but he was one of the most athletic in history. The media can spin so much yarn they will get half the people to believe anything really. And yes, Obama sucks ass at golf too. I can't think of a president in modern history that was worse. Maybe Carter but he didn't even try to play sports as far as I know.

Meal Team Six makes me laugh because of a story from my early 20s.

A good buddy of mine was growing some weed. Personal use stuff, six plants, not even at the felony level back then in terms of their maturity at the time. Now, we come from a rural county in CO that has been a major marijuana cultivation zone for fifty years. Thousands of acres under tillage for top-quality shit.

So six unfruited plants was practically nothing. Deputies there wouldn't get out of bed for a raid where they could sell the take down in Denver for less than five digits.

Except this one, who we grew up with, and who hated my group of kids back in HS. And we didn't bully him or anything. He was just a tremendously fat, STOOOOPID asshoe who didn't get invited to our parties. And, to be fair, while he was manifestly unfit for police work in every way, and only got on the Department because of nepotism, he was likely the only honest deputy PCSD had.

In any event, he found out about my friend's pathetic little garden and decided to raid him in the middle of the night. He and his partner suited up in all the SWAT gear. I'm guessing homeboy had to wear two vests because he was no less than 400lbs by then.

My friend said he woke up because heard a lot of noise out in the woods, and looked out there to see this guy "hiding" behind a Doug fir with an M16. Except, he was bigger around than the trunk so hiding isn't the right word.

He just walked out laughing, and took his misdemeanor charge from the circuit court.

The other two shot in that incident (one in the guts, one in the wiener) had it coming. It's too bad they survived and he didn't.

Too many police departments have officers going fully armored hut-hut with the blessings of their chiefs and politicos who used taxpayer money to buy all that armor, including armored vehicles. (As stated above, if a situation is bad enough for MRAPs, it's time for the National Guard, not the po-po.) That SCOTUS decision stating the police have duty to protect citizens has, IMAO, done a lot of damage with the cops as the cops took full advantage of that ruling, deciding their pensions were more important than their 'sworn' duty to protect and serve. Police unions sticking up for the bad apples hasn't helped their cause at all, either.

I hear ya. The only reason we point it out is that people in the media have tried to make him cool, and hip, he is neither. ESPN and others spent hours with him on his fantasy sports picks. They tried to show him as an athlete but he was Urkel.

We don't think you have to be good at sports to be president, he does. He needs the illussion the media has always given him. This guy always got a leg up in any competition, it became the norm. Really there was never a competition. He just always got a leg up.

If you ever see him hit a golf ball or shoot at a hoop, it is pretty embarrassing. Even GWB, with all his flaws was ten times the athlete the lesser Urkel was.

I oversold that a bit and expected to get called out. But there is a famous book you can find on Amazon called Johnny Ringo, the gunfighter that never was.

I love old west history. It is fascinating because it is a proven fact we have better records on ancient Rome than we do of the Old West in the mid to late 1800s.

There are likely some new books, but up until ten years ago I read every serious scholarly book on Doc Holliday that has been written. It is cool to read the early, serious works and notice the huge mistakes. The dime novel stuff is absurd with regard to all of these people. The famous and good movie "My Darling Clementine" is so historically inaccurate, it would have caused all kinds of libel and slander lawsuits today.

It is cool to know you know your stuff. I am up for talking the old west, Doc and Wyatt any time. It sucks there are not many really old west historians and there is even less of a market for their studies that are just as important as those from any other region or time. The thing got so mixed up with dime novels and mythology that many don't even wan to know the cold hard history.

I never had a problem with the Caps Lock key until I started using laptop flat keyboards. I hit that sucker all the time and sHIT hAPpens.

These laptop keyboards are awful. I can only imagine what it's like with some of those on-screen tablet keyboards and stuff.

The Backspace, Delete, Home, and other keys are also problematic. And Ctrl. I hit some crazy key combinations by accident sometimes that do all sorts of crazy shit I'm not expecting.

835 The book that got me started on serious Old West history was The Encyclopedia of Old West Gunfighters, by Bill O'neal.The thing I liked about the guy is he played down all rumors and only told was was dead solid fact. They guy might have been too skeptical, but that was a good antidote at the time. He required solid proof of every gunfight result. You don't hear about shooting 40 men from this guy.

I never learned to type, or had any formal typing training. I started out huntin' pecker with computer keyboards back in college, and then gradually gained finger memory on the location of keys with the QWERTY layout.

I can type pretty fast now, and use most of my fingers. It's strange, I couldn't draw out a keyboard layout to save my life, but my brain knows where to put my fingers.

With a normal, full size keyboard, I do pretty well, but these flat laptop keyboards can mess me up. They are narrower and my fat fingers get confused on where they are.

That's me all over. In a previous life I had to take notes and provide feedback on job performance to people as they did their jobs. I found that using a laptop was less useful than paper and pencil (well, carbonless triplicate forms). I spent more time trying to fix my typing errors than recording what I was seeing them doing. And I made faces at the computer that they interpreted as feedback on their performance.

840 I honestly don't recall whether he listed Ringo or not. Again, I am not saying Ringo did not exist. I am a huge Doc Holliday fan like you would never know. But this guy takes Doc down a few pegs. That is ok because it is just a start. Doc wasn't what they showed in Tombstone,and I freaking loved Tombstone. He was more really, because he was human.

I think he did not mention Ringo but i am not sure,I don't have the book but will remedy that. I am referring to the 1979 edition. Maybe it is a quirk, but I always go for the oldest editions. Anything close to this time well, enough said.

If you ever want to read a Norton Anthology of American Literature, get the oldest version you can, trust me.

American individualism is a suicide pact
by Damon Linker
https://t.co/JPE3NBV2YG

...Then there's the restive faction of the Republican Party that uses its media perches and headline-grabbing protests at state houses and city halls to express displeasure with stay-at-home orders. And well-publicized anecdotes of people becoming less willing in warm spring weather to continue sheltering-in-place (despite numerous polls showing strong broad-based support at both the national and local level for maintaining such restrictions).

But underlying all of these sources of opposition to public-health measures is a deeper cause that intertwines with and underlies all of them, at least in part - Wisconsin governor's stay-at-home order when she volunteered that she considered it "the very definition of tyranny."

Americans like to see their "don't tread on me" ethic as one of the country's most admirable traits. And maybe in some contexts and historical moments it is. But during a pandemic it is idiocy to cry tyranny at efforts to mitigate the spread of the pathogen. In such circumstances, our incorrigible individualism can become lethal - a suicide pact that threatens individuals as well as the political community as a whole. That makes it a public menace...

Harkening back to the previous thread, imagine being the guy whose image (and voice?) was there on screen when the sound of the flushing toilet broke free like a fleeing buck bursting through thick undergrowth into open country and bounding off like the wind. Nothing you say in the future will escape this mental process among your listeners:

Who is this guy? He seems familiar ... I know that I've seen his face before, but where, wh... wait! He's that toilet-flushing-on-live-TV-while-being-interviewed guy! What an assclown!

And then you'll see THAT look of realization, and then a smirk, and always, always you will hear (with a muffled guffaw or two), "Could you please repeat what you just said? I ... I didn't quite catch that."

846 Curly Bill was another that got over played. It was not that he was not outlandish. He was more outlandish than the movie dreamed of showing. Check his real history and you will see some stuff you could not imagine.

Making Mexican party goers strip naked and dance, yes, he did that.

But he became the Hans to John Mclane. The real story is way more rich and way more complicated. I have said my peace on it and maybe someone will take a shot. The history of the OK Corral is crazy complicated.

I love Tombstone and consider it one of the most historically accurate westerns ever made. But two problems here. The Earps were basically run out of the town with the law after them. You don't see that in the movie.

And Earp abandoned Doc to die alone in Leadville Colorado. I don't mention this as a gotcha to those who love the movie. Trust me, it was more accurate than all but that boring drone fest by Kostner.

I only mention this stuff because I love history and it is fun to chase it down. The first Doc Holliday bio I know of was from John Myers Myers. He made a few mistakes as when he got the dental school doc went to wrong. But it was the first real scholarly attempt and it still stands up.

he would be an SNL punchline if they had any clue or integrity. The man is seriously the worst athlete I can think of as a modern president. That POS CHevy Chase tried to make Ford look like a buffoon, He pulled it off in many ways as the skis are still well known. But Ford was likely the most athletic president since Ike. And everyone hates Chevy Chase, even lefty SNL jagoffs.

that is the thing about Dems. They know when to drop the payload. It might make fools of them later, but they do it when it helps them the most, in the moment. They love a Repub who is retired, because why not? All they care about is the next win. If you watch them long enough, it is as clear as a bell.

it is shame they lost that team. i remember them as serious adversaries to the Rockets way back when. They had some really good players on the Sonics. And as a Frasier fan, it is a bit melancholy to see all the episodes that included that team. I can think of three episodes off hand that included going to a Sonics game. They mentioned them other times but actually shot three different episodes with scenes in the Tacoma Dome/Seattle Center.

Gatherings of more than 50 people will not be allowed until phase five.

Pritzker said the state entered phase two on Friday and will enter phase three on May 29 at the earliest. Face masks will be recommended in public until phase five is reached. Schools, restaurants, and bars will not reopen until phase four.

Phase five cannot begin until a vaccine is widely available or a highly effective therapeutic drug is released. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has said a vaccine is 12 to 18 months away from being available to the public.

So what does he do?

In less than 24 hours, he pivots and now says the Covad team is not only still alive, but he is ADDING to it and changing the focus to getting the American economy back open, in addition to continuing the task of fighting the Covad menace.

First it was reopen in 2 weeks after flattening the curve.

Then it was 30 days to flatten the curve.

Now it's 12 to 18 months to have a vaccine.

Interesting how they just moved the goal posts to something which none of us can track through their bogus case/death counts.

This now gives Governors the ability to extend their lockdowns for 12-18 months with zero accountability.

950 The Hyatt Hotel clan, which hails from Chicago, counts 11 billionaire members - many of whom still have stakes in the publicly traded Hyatt. Thomas, the hotel group's executive chairman, is the only Pritzker who still maintains a role at Hyatt. The family members have mostly diversified after the clan spent the 2000's feuding over trusts. They eventually divvied up the fortune. Penny is now the U.S. Commerce Secretary; Gigi is a movie producer (Drive; The Way Way Back) John owns boutique hotel group Commune Hotels; brothers Anthony and J.B. run Pritzker Group investment firm; Karen (pictured above) and her husband Michael Vlock are active investors. Liesel Pritzker Simmons, who sued her father and the Pritzker family in 2003 (the family settled), is an impact investor. Roots of the fortune date to A.N. Pritzker (d. 1986), who with his sons Jay, Donald and Robert created Hyatt Hotels and invested in holdings like industrial conglomerate Marmon Group, now owned by Berkshire Hathaway.

Yet... weren't President Trump and his task force the ones who released the 5-Phase Plan for Reopening thing a week or so ago?

I don't see why President Trump is not taking the blame for these things.

Hell, his own guy on his own task force, Fauci, is the one recommending not opening for 12-18 months until there is a vaccine.

So when Governors take the recommendations from President Trump's task force, how is it that President Trump takes no blame for that?

Posted by: rhennigantx dont californicate my TEXAS at May 07, 2020 07:00 AM (JFO2v)


A real Church Militant would say "fuck you, we open on Sunday."

The American Catholic Church sees that the tithes and money are still rolling in electronically and says "keeping closed over here, boss!"

This country is a bad joke.

961 I go back and forth on this. There's only so much tamping down they could do because the rest of the world is experiencing it too.

Not me. Thanks to Obamacare in addition to Hillary's wise leadership and health protocols, we haven't experienced these problems.

So when Governors take the recommendations from President Trump's
task force, how is it that President Trump takes no blame for that?


Yep, and Guv Pritz has already his his sizable self behind Trump's recommendations. "But Trump said..."

Well, he's not wrong.

I mean, he's a hypocrite, sure. Because none of these Governors would take any advice from President Trump when it comes to "sanctuary" cities/states and illegal immigration laws.

But when it comes to wanting to control their citizens, they go by the Trump Task Force guidelines.

Still, why is President Trump giving them that cover? He talks about wanting to re-open the country, yet his task force puts out a 5-Phase plan to not reopen fully until there is a vaccine.

That's ridiculous.

All those videos of doctors and such which have been getting vanished from YouTube... all were saying that there is going to be a huge increase in illnesses once we all come out of house arrest.

The Plandemic video has a few of these statements from doctors in it.

994 This meatball NJ police commissioner on FOX is indicative of how much this scam has perverted everything..


Meatball NJ PC: We are under lock down orders so we are trying to keep everyone home, safe and not spreading the virus.


No matter what you do, You cannot stop the spread of a virus in a country of 325 million people, dipshit.

That's not how this works, it's not how any of this works.

People may be "locked down" but they go to....


The grocery store.
Target.
Lowes.
Home Depot.
etc.


We have nursing home attendants basically killing our old population.


We have officials not wearing masks ordering plebes to wear masks.

Masks will not do shit in a country of 325 million people.


If masks worked, Asian countries would have lower incidences of viral infections and outbreaks.

Plot twist:

They don't.


This is the sickest, most anti-science, scam and operation in world history.
