EMT 5/9/20

Dental floss.

Nobody likes to talk about it, but you gotta have your favorite, right?

Mine is Reach Total Care. I don't think they even make it anymore, but I managed to clean out a couple years worth at the local discount store when they had a bunch from closeout.

Yeah, I hoard things like dental floss I like.

That's why when the WuFlu panic shopping hit, all I worried about was milk for the kids.

And ammo.

For me, not those maniac kids. My homeschool has started getting bomb threats from one of the students, and I feel like the teachers should be well armed.

I suspect the youngest. He likes knocking down block towers saying things like "booom" and "Roooaaar".

30 Heard from friends in MT on Friday. They live about 5 minutes from the property we've purchased. Ravali County. 5 positive for the WuFlu and zero deaths. Their bars and restaurants have reopened. No more then 6 in a party and must be 6 feet apart. But they are reopened. Why oh why didn't we move sooner? I want to put the house up for sale right now. Hubby says no. He wants to see the fallout from the Chineeee lung aids.

Deep frost here in W Central WI ... 21 degrees out there, while front hall and kitchen are festooned with windowboxes, pots, and a couple boxes of seedlings not yet planted.


Yesterday at the ag equivalent of a used car lot the sentiment was:

a. - this is city-folks hysteria

b. - here where the supply chain begins, no problem !
a few goofies who listen to too much news actually panicked, briefly, but they have got their minds right now.

most everyone around here has woodstoves and wells and cans their own garden stuff so the attitude is "what, me worry ?"

70 Virtually everything is manufactured in China.

One of the sneaky ways some companies go to not alert you to the fact that their product is made in China is that they made say made in America and have Chinese Character right after it.

Check out an Energizer battery.

It says Made in America but has two Chinese characters after it.


The actual battery is made in China and shipped to the US, the only thing made in America is the label which is applied, packaged and sold to an unsuspecting and largely uncaring consumer.


The funnier one is Rayovac, they say Made in the USA from US and global parts.

Guess what the US part and the global part is?

My mother actually believed the 70s nonsense that violence was something taught to children rather than being inherent in human nature.

I wasn't allowed to have "war toys" for years, but try as she might, she couldn't derail my fascination with military history. She encouraged me to read, so the books I checked out were all about war.

When we went to the book store, those were the ones I wanted to buy even when I was little. I'd stare for hours and pictures of tanks and planes and (especially) warships.

It didn't help that my parents were divorced and my dad thought she was being stupid and gave me toy guns, model tanks and so on. She gave up by the time I turned 6.

Lots of the stupidity that torments us today came out in the 70s.

"“He had been on a downhill slope because of some other issues he had,” said his 29-year-old son, Nate Jones. “Had the virus not been a thing, he probably had at least several more months left in him.

-

And the gamble for those additional months was worth the loss of $20T+ in wealth, 20%+ unemployment (and the resulting suicides of younger people), permanently closing 30% of small businesses, and 100M people losing their employer-based health insurance.

121 Agree about the difficulty of the feed string and flap opening of Oral B disc floss. Often times i have to pry open the entire rig. They're made in Ireland, I believe. I figure Irish sweatshop pre-schoolers are the only ones who can manage that design. In the Navy we called errant threads 'Irish pennants.' See how it all comes together?

In my childhood neighborhood, EVERY dad was either a WWII, Korea, or serving Vietnam vet. in a couple cases, two or even all three. We divided all our war toys into classifications - Big Army (WE were the soldiers), two scales of models, or GI Joes (I preferred the Japanese infantryman, which I am sure made my dad - who fought in the Pacific and was awarded a Combat V Bronze Star) - cringe; he was tolerant enough not to comment, bless him.

Every dad had some kind of war trophies. usually kept in the woodshop, next to the pinups.

This isn't an episode of Scooby Doo, where upon being confronted with the incriminating evidence the crooks gripe that they "would have gotten away with it, too, if it wasn't for you meddling kids!"

Of course they're going to lie. They have to. Everything they have is built on lies and they have to ride the rocket until it hits the ground. There's no other exit strategy.

Not a single one of these people is going to do a mea culpa unless they face the same kind of pain Flynn faced.

I've been convinced he was playing for the other team for a while.

Funny how he got all belligerent on talk shows but didn't do shit when he had subpoena power.

His Benghanzi hearings were a joke and nothing came of them. Same with Hillary's emails.

As I said at the time, Congress has a number of tools to force compliance and they used to use them all the time.

For example, the budget. All Congress had to do was zero out the DoJ or State Dept budget for a year. In fact, they didn't even have to do that much, just budget it seperately rather than as part of the pork-filled "omnibus."

Let Obama sign all the other budgets and hold that one until they get the documents. Again, this used to happen *all the time.*

The GOP ran on restoring it in 2010! But strangely, they did nothing once they got the power we gave them.

No, of course he won't be indicted - that's why a growing number of us think it would be a master stroke for Trump to issue a pre-emptive pardon of Obama, it would look generous while simultaneously driving every leftist out of their minds.

As far as the phone call yesterday, I find that astounding and hugely significant - because it was such a Mistake!!! If you've read thoughts on strategy, from Sun Tzu through Clausewitz, a huge part of strategy involves waiting for you opponent to make a mistake. Obama was safe hiding inside his bunker, saying nothing, he was untouchable - and all of a sudden he's been trolled into sticking his head out and making sure that HE is now involved in all of this!

What incredibly stupid timing for him! Now, as ALL the evidence against is starting to come out! As the Dam is starting to break! He should have gone even deeper under cover! But his side, and his people must be absolutely desperate, and like drowning men they're grabbing for him. And he's too arrogant to realize that he could get dragged down with them.

Until yesterday, Obama was still politically untouchable. *He* just changed that.

He made a mistake.

As I said, I believe Barr and Durham are conducting a legitimate investigation, and recent events have buoyed my hopes the investigation is of the, let justice be done though the heavens may fall, variety.


The Op against Trump started as a counter intelligence operation, those investigations are conducted expressly for the executive, Obama directed and coordinated this investigation through his subordinates.

None of this can happen without Obama's imprimatur.

Maybe he should get behind the legislators and churches who are suing Fatso to reopen the state instead of just harumphing

Granted Obama is amoral. But aren't you projecting a sense of loyalty to someone who has no ability, or vocabulary to exhibit loyalty?

Not that it would ever happen, but Barry already did damage by popping out of his hole and making noise again - so any question to whether he would bare testimony would not be to issue truth, it would be to do what is most expedient for himself.

If a decision to better himself, no matter how marginal or contrived - even just for the joy of lying and sowing confusion, were to stand before throwing a Democratic Party stooge under the bus... prepare room for that stooge under the bus.

The party has no loyalty. Everyone can be a cut-out and dispensed. What you may think is loyalty is simply trying to outrun your fellow camper away from the bear.

reduce the population they have to deal with, rather than deal with the
people who's lives they destroyed. Look at Venezuela, they've driven
almost 20% of the pre-Chavez population out of the country, and Maduro
is overjoyed about it.

In the People's Republic of Illinois in order to get
the outrageously priced license plate sticker you have to pass a
vehicle emission test. However due to the Bubonic plague killing
everyone all of the vehicle emission test sites are closed. Not sure how
they are going to work that bit of stupidity out

Evers, State Sen.Wirch and Rep. Ohnstad, to see if they've been barbered lately. The latter two gentlemen keep sending out these offensive "Dear Constituent" emails in which they praise their own drag-ass approach to getting the state open again.

That's a pleasant way of thinking about it. Butterfly effect and all that.

Except that means we lost the House for the same reasons, I guess. But hey, we got some tax cuts that will expire before it happened and before we lost every economic gain made in the last four years in the desperate hope to give elderly people a few more months to lie in their nursing home beds staring at the ceiling while their families are prohibited from visiting them.

And the lawbreakers are still untouched and untouchable.

From my personal experience, I would say we'd be lucky of 10% of the population ever actually paid attention to anything that's going on. 90% are always going to go along with what they're told by "authority", because it's too much work to think for themselves. Now, if there's a good part to this, it's that they're not solidly on the other side either, they're just sheep, waiting to be led by whoever looks the safest on a superficial level.

$2000.00/month for everyone.

I'm assuming they mean households, so approximately 120 million checks each month. Doing the math puts us at about 3 Trillion per year.

This is a democrat dream. Give everyone just enough to keep them from starving in exchange for their vote. Give small increases about every 4 years or so to remind everyone where that money comes from.

Having everyone on a minimum level does nothing to build the economy and advance the country.

However, there does need to be a plan to keep the middle class from slipping into poverty as the country opens back up.

I still say paying off debt with the sale of national assets is the way to go.

The other day in a store I remarked how the keep-yer-distance lines were 6' front-to-back, but half that side-to-side, just like that meme photo, so I quoted it, "Good thing the virus only travels forward and backward and can't travel side-to-side!"

I remember a lady smiling at that (so she must not have been wearing a mask).



At a couple of stores, I notice the directional arrows, distancing lines, and motivational quips stuck to the floor were not only being largely ignored but also were already getting scuffed and torn and peeling up.

Yep, he was 75 and had been in a wheelchair since he was partially paralyzed after being attacked by one of the tigers in the early 2000's.

Seigfried had claimed that the tiger attack was not an attack at all, but just the tiger's way of trying to help Roy, who Siegfried said was having a stroke at the time. So Roy has not been well for decades, and it's not surprising that a cold or flu bug would have been enough to finish him off.

strategy involves waiting for you opponent to make a mistake. Obama
was safe hiding inside his bunker, saying nothing, he was untouchable -
and all of a sudden he's been trolled into sticking his head out and
making sure that HE is now involved in all of this!



What incredibly stupid timing for him! Now, as ALL the evidence
against is starting to come out! As the Dam is starting to break! He
should have gone even deeper under cover! But his side, and his people
must be absolutely desperate, and like drowning men they're grabbing

(1) I was given a new pair of leather moccasin slippers for Christmas. By mid-March both left and right were blown out along the seams. Stiched them up with dental floss. Slightly unsightly, but functionally good as new.

(2) My wife bought a Zero-Water filter and pitcher on clearance, and we found the little spiggot leaked. When I disassembled it, I found the little rubber washer did not for a tight enough seal. Hmm, what would be sufficiently sanitary, water-resistant, able to fill the gap, etc.? Ah, wound some dental floss (unused, of course) around the mechanism to force the washer to form a tighter fit.

I dunno, but I'm kinda thinkin' dental floss may be the new duct tape. Maybe Mike Rowe has an opinion on this?
