The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“This is insanity, and at some point we are going to look back in shame as we consider it. Politicians will always seize the maximum amount of power, they can. That’s why they went into politics in the first place. The question for us is: ‘Why are the rest of us allowing this to happen?'Tucker Carlson


Quote II


“We have to keep safe, but if you’re going to wear [a mask], you might as well wear it in style. You want to look good in it.” Yosel Tiefenbrun


Quote III

“VP Biden’s statement today represents the, arrogant and out-of-touch attitude of a paternalistic white candidate who has the audacity to tell Black people, the descendants of slaves, that they are not Black unless they vote for him. This proves unequivocally that the Democratic nominee believes that Black people owe him their vote without question; even though we as Black people know it is exactly the opposite. He should spend the rest of his campaign apologizing to every Black person he meets." Robert L. Johnson, founder of Black Entertainment Television & RLJ Companies


Quote IV

“I’m not being sarcastic, and I know your concern is genuine and well-intentioned. That said, a crocheted mask is about as effective as a balsa wood battleship.”James Woods

LOLGF!!! x 2

A man claiming to be Dr. Marc Mallory, the husband of nasty woman Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, called a docking/boat company late last week requesting immediate access to the couple’s boat for Memorial Day weekend.

But because the company, NorthShore Dock LLC, was already severely behind schedule because of Whitmer’s oppressive shutdown orders, his request had to be denied.

All of this was revealed in a Facebook post published by one of NorthShore’s employees.

Seniors rock the prank.

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves became the butt of the joke while paying tribute to high school graduates when he fell for a prank Bart Simpson would be proud of.

On a Facebook live session Saturday, Reeves started reading the names of graduates from Florence High School, his alma mater, when he came to an unusual name – “Harry Azcrac.”

The Republican, 45, read it, paused briefly and kept going.

Saving basements wasn't enough. He had to be a Genius Award Winner.

Brown allegedly robbed the Oklahoma Capital Bank in Skiatook on March 12. The captain, who had an account at the bank, was recognized by one of the employees from the way he walked and his muscular build, according to an affidavit provided to CNN by the Skiatook Police Department.

The second robbery occurred on May 7 at the Exchange Bank in Sperry. Witnesses for both robberies said the suspect wore khaki pants, black gloves with a yellow logo, and used a black backpack to collect the money, the affidavit said.

Brown was arrested in the parking lot of his fire station Monday and was released on a $50,000 bond two days later, Shoemake said. He is scheduled for arraignment June 18.

The Tulsa Fire Department placed Brown on administrative leave.

"We expect our employees to act in a manner that continuously builds upon public trust we have worked so hard to obtain," it said.

Rumor has it that the Tulsa FD is hiring. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Teens Rescue Old Man Trapped In A Fire Without Any Equipment

Two friends rescued a man trapped on his balcony after a fire broke out in an apartment building in north-central France.


The previous story, not enough Feel Goodism? Another Feel Good Story of The Day.

#Believeallwomen right? Oh, wait. Since Tara Reade came along and put feminists in a tough spot by accusing Joe Biden, #believeallwomen is supposed to be some kind of right-wing plot despite the fact that feminists were the ones that made it popular. Now it’s #believewomen, as if that’s really any different. Even if we use the hashtag #believewomen, this woman we’re supposed to believe lied through her teeth, got caught, and is being hit with the sort of punishment all women that lie about rape should face (after the jail sentences they deserve):

A University of Minnesota law professor who was falsely accused of rape in 2017 won a $1.2 million defamation lawsuit filed against his accuser.

…According to court records, Parisi and Wright met in 2014 and began an intimate relationship. Later that year, the two agreed to purchase a condo together, but the relationship soon fell apart completely and the prospective property became the subject of several protracted lawsuits.

37 So, an older gentleman from my hometown, who I've known all my life and am good friends with, got a cancer diagnosis some months ago (not sure what kind exactly, but it's wrapped around his spine). Had a doctor's appointment yesterday, and was told that it's inoperable. They aren't talking hospice just yet, but it's clearly headed that direction.

If I could get him placed on the blog prayer list, I would appreciate it. I don't think he's a reader (though he is Moron-friendly), but he's a good guy and could use the prayers.

Tom Petty's music video of the song has both George Harrison and Ringo playing backup. It's pretty cool.

Tommy Tuberville used to coach at Auburn. He used to cry and cry when Auburn would get shut out of a spot in the BCS and is an all around douchebag but compared to Rip Van Sessions he is a ray of sunshine.

The crooks that run kollege footballs now want to be in the Senate so they can steal more money. Go figure.

Her Majesty and I went out for breakfast yesterday. They're at 50% seating but their full menu is back. Our server didn't seem too sure about what she was doing but she tried.

We're regulars at this cafe, so the manager came over and thanked us for coming in. He said his principal problem was getting enough workers. Only two servers pre-shutdown had returned - they were making more on UI - and the kitchen staff was having to take over waiting tables. We left a good tip anyway.

118 During World War II, much of the Berlin Zoo was destroyed.[4] Of the zoo's 16,000 animals, only 96 survived.[4][5] When the aquarium building was destroyed by a bomb on 23 November 1943, 20 to 30 alligators and crocodiles were killed.[4][5] Press reports documented that the streets near the aquarium were littered with alligator and crocodile corpses, but that some, including Saturn, had survived and were wandering through the city in search of food.[4]
***

So imagine your some poor Berlin schmuck. Your city is being bombed and about to be invaded. And as you walk out of your basement to look for food you come face to face with an alligator.


Maybe they could give the fall of Berlin the "Death of Stalin" treatment and center it on Saturn and his escape from the destroyed zoo?

Apparently 'because they can'. From what I see on twitter, the border sees activity every spring, but this particular spot wasn't previously disputed. China has complained that India building a road in the area (obviously on India's side of the border) is a change in the status quo which they object to.

It's not clear whether India's doing much of anything to stop them.

177 Thought a bit, here's why the harassment of Indian borders is really stupid for China. First, the land they're trying to grab is really pretty valueless, hilly ground, no real value. The only reason to do is to deliberately piss India off, make them want to retaliate some way.

But how best for India to retaliate? Not militarily over worthless ground, that could cost casualties for no real reason. Better move: The US is about to start all kinds of shit for China, because we're pissed off about Covid. India could turn into one of our biggest international cheerleaders, just because they're pissed off. Real stupid for China not to see that they're risking driving their two biggest competitors into an alliance.

If the Wuhan Flu really was as deadly as the MSM and the Dems keep telling us that it is, by now everybody who works at Costco, and Kroger, and WalMart, and every other grocery store in America would be dead. Bodies piled up as high as the rafters.

The staff members at every grocery see millions of people every day, coast to coast. Maybe tomorrow is the day, but I have yet to have to step over piles of bodies to get to the bread.

It got even odder when it started out by thanking the heroes on the front line of the fight against COVID-19. It also was sliding into conflating Memorial Day with Veterans' Day. A lot of thanking our serving military.

It is 75 years since the end of WWII so the focus was on that war, they had a segment on the Tuskegee airmen. Neither my husband nor I can remember if the 442 Regiment has ever been featured. Would have thought it might be nice to remember them too.

283 "I have to admit, I like the idea of Bob Dylan more than the music of Bob Dylan."
The best Bob Dylan song, ever, is "Stuck in the Middle With You". Which is a parody by the band Stealer's Wheel.
If your best song is parody of your own work, then your own work can't be all that good.
As for Dylan getting the Nobel Prize for Literature, that was the Nobel Committee's cry for help. To place Bob Dylan in the same category as Alexander Solzhenitsyn and T. S. Eliot brings absurdity to a whole new level.

But I must admit that his backup musicians, especially The Band, are outstanding.

305 being a very un hip (country when country wasn't cool) kid, I was first introduced to Dylan in an English class. He seemed more of a poet than a singer. Still he is probably better known for the lyrics themselves than the quality of his voice.

My siblings and I have gone thru periods of time without speaking because of anger, but eventually get over it. Family is very important to me. For the most part we can deal with politics, religion is where we have to agree to disagree.

I must let you know that your suggestion last night about my truck's reverse lamps was most helpful!

I was able to quickly determine that it was indeed the switch on the gearbox by shorting the wires at the snap connector...

I got the part and the proper tool to put it in from AutoZone, and five minutes later I was back in bidness!

In France, you can qualify for big time financial assistance if you arrive in the country as an unaccompanied minor asylum seeker. You have to be a teen. Those two are, most definitely, not teenagers. Just look at their picture the link. It's gotten so bad in France, that they have just started to give bone tests to prove age.

Evening Robert,

My siblings and I have gone thru periods of time without speaking because of anger, but eventually get over it. Family is very important to me. For the most part we can deal with politics, religion is where we have to agree to disagree.

Sadly I remember a time that I didn't speak to my brother over an issue, we got over it, but I now think it was a bad example to my daughter who now is not speaking to me.
Posted by: AmericanKestrel at May 24, 2020 11:42 PM (IDhUW)


My brother can infuriate me like no other. I can get along with him in small doses but the countdown is always on until he says something so fucking stupid that I lose my shit. It's a strange gift he has. The bad thing is that I have a pretty good knack for knowing what they'll be; he's not a deep well.

In my family there were 3 girls and 3 boys. Interestingly, we 3 girls are more conservative than my 2 surviving brothers. My brothers are sorta republican, but weak. I think they both voted for Hillary. I steer away from talking politics with them because I get a bit mean. If I got into a conversation about Whitmer, I'd probably get arrested on an obscenity charge.

My/our relationship is kinda "meh". It's due to my SIL who is an insecure neurotic bitch. Even her kids have issues w/ her.

Too bad she didn't teach them any manners, like saying thank you for gifts, or even acknowledging them. Unless they get better in our old age that will definitely impact their inheritances. The charities we name will like that.

Do I sound bitter? Perhaps, but such is life. Always had the model of my paternal grandparents who palled around w/ his his siblings. Such was not to be w/ this poor woman.

Politics.

They always voted Democrat, I suppose, but it wasn't a Big Deal. Then they joined the Church of the Party.
They got more an more involved in party politics and it was like a religious conversion or something.

352 Thread before this one. That pic of the little kid putting out flags at the cemetery. When I was in the Boy Scouts (they weren't all f'd up then) we used to do that. And even as 13 year olds we knew the weight of it. It was solemn, but it was something to be proud of and proud for all those that gave their most precious gift. It was probably the only time we didn't joke around. For some reason, we knew not to. May the good lord bless the families that have sacrificed so much. May he comfort them. May he bless those who have given us so many blessings. May he continue to bless our nation. More than we have probably deserved. But in gratitude may we be humble and look forward in thanks.

Ain't in no hurry to reverse that, anytime soon.

Can't, anyway. He's back in the system again, even at age 65.

I don't hate him. Fact is, I still have some form of a familial love for him.

Which can only exist with distance and separation. We're talking about someone who was 45 min. late to his own Mom's funeral, 'cause he was too busy getting stoned with his "friends."

Thousand miles between us, suits me just fine.

Mine with my older sister is a bit odd. She's 2 1/2 years older, and remembers me as a young kid.

I might not call her for months, but sooner or later she'll call to check up on me, and I am reminded that she worries about me, because, little brother.

I think it has always been like that, but it's just not an emotion that I feel, and I forget that she feels a sisterly love/obligation to look after me. I'm always a little ashamed when she calls, it's a bit humbling.

397 One of the last conversations I had with one of my brothers, he started with "you're probably not going to like this but...." Then he launched into this dumbass theory that Trump was going to reopen the country so that he can golf, because he golfs every weekend. I pointed out to him that Trump has access to a golf course at Camp David, and owns two golf resorts, one in Florida, and one, I think in New Jersey.
He OWNS them. It doesn't matter if they're closed. Anyway, I ended the conversation shortly after that.

I think it has always been like that, but it's just not an emotion that I feel, and I forget that she feels a sisterly love/obligation to look after me. I'm always a little ashamed when she calls...

Somewhat similar to my dealings w/ my brother, 2 yrs 9 mon younger than me. Right now I've called him twice in the last 2 weeks. Only response was a text the second time that he was working.

I have been out of the eee-letric meters and multimeters and tools for a long time now, and just happened to stumble on something, and that got me to looking at the newest stuff and trying to get up to speed.

Back in the '90s, Iused to drool over Fluke Scopemeters, portable digitial storage scopes. One can do all sorts of fancy shit with those. They cost $Ks, and still do. Top of the line now is pushing $7K.

But, some others are making much cheaper ones now. $500 will get you one with all the features of the scopemeters I used to drool over back then.

I'm almost about to buy one. But that's not what blew my mind. Fork meters are what blew my mind. Open jawed current measurement, and now Fluke (and some others) are doing open jawed *voltage measurement* with these fork meters.

Put a wire inside the fork, and these things will tell you the current flowing and also the voltage to ground. V measurement error seems to be about 3%.

I've been trying to find something on how these things work. The open jawed current thing intrigued me.

The voltage sensor works by capacitive coupling to ground. What the thing does is generate an internal signal somehow which injected in the wire under test. The voltage signal on that wire distorts that internal field and signal, and the voltage and frequency of the external source can be calculated.

These things are just $300 or so.

Arny Navy Arlington is a pretty nice course but in a bad neighborhood. Andrews used to get a ton of play but when I played it ages ago, it was nothing special. A lot of big wigs play there on the reg though.

The original Ft. Belvoir North 18 was designed by Robert Trent Jones Sr I think in 1950. It was a a special place really. Someone decided to wreck it in the 90s and create two 18 hole courses. The argument back then was it would give the troops more opportunity to play. From what I saw, things got worse. They always seemed to have at least on of the courses reserved for a corporate outing.

It's not that they're WRONG.

It's that they're shallow.

Repetitive, too. The both of them.

Advantage: Osteen. At least now n' then, one is brought to find faith in Christ. Gotta count that in the Win column, no matter what.

Lesser advantage, Hannity.

Whenever I feel bad about myself, or where we are as a country, I watch a film of the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknowns. And after I do it gives me a sense of humility, hope and resolve.

Didn't watch, nor did I need to. Bill Nye is right up there with BHO and HRC on my list of people I can't abide.

Here are a few things I've learned from YouTube during my time of limbo, alone in a mostly empty house:

It appears as if the subject with the most TED Talks devoted to it is boobs.

The news announcers covering (mostly L.A.) police pursuits are always CERTAIN the police are going to perform a PIT maneuver, but the police hardly ever do. I think they just like saying "PIT maneuver".

488 I'm going to give the briefest of summaries of a really good book I'm reading, by an author/academic you've most likely not heard of, "Strategic Intelligence and Statecraft", Adda Bozeman, (1992):

American ideals of Freedom and Individual Liberty are uniquely American. We can never change the world to "become more like us." America should always have the mailed fist at the ready, but be prepared to offer a velvet glove when asked. Our intelligence, military and diplomatic failures of late are because we, or rather our policymakers, in our/their hubris fail to understand that.

If one wants to read why our policies have failed in the 21st Century, this book lays the reasons out in the late 20th Century. Trying to remake Iraq and Afghanistan into our political image was a huge mistake, as those countries' codification of shari'a law prove. Our failure with China is also explained in an excellent and rational manner, again because we fail to understand Chinese history, be it Confucianism or Legalism. Non-Western and Leninist societies do not value the individual as we do. In those countries, the individual has a responsibility to, and subsumed by, the group, be it familial, caste or tribal. That is our gravest shortcoming as a Nation, thinking that we can remake such countries in the image of America and its societal jurisprudence even though other non-Western and Leninist nations have centuries of political governance quite at odds with those American concepts.

The book also delves into language and how the words spoken by various countries may be the same, but the ideas underpinning those words are vastly different. In effect, we are speaking past each other. (We see that play out with our own leftists and their concept of 'justice', e.g.)

Good book. Very meaty. Highly recommended, if you can find it.

543 Posting about my soldier hubbies got me to thinking. The first one served in WWII in the Army Air Corps. He could regale a room for hours with tales of the war and made several friends during that time.


Number two (I lost the first one after twenty years) was in 'Nam for a year as a helicopter mechanic. He would not talk about that war nor could he remember the names of anyone he served with save one warrant officer who he swore could fly a helicopter sideways.


We don't fight good wars any more.

549 creeper, if you hanging about for another minute or two, Pixy isn't the keeper of that info. It's in your browser cache, so it's a browser setting or permission that's gotten hosed somehow.

I have mine set to clear cache every time I close the browser, on purpose. I seldom close the browser except on reboot.

So every time I reboot I have to fill in anything required the first time I visit a site.

And we certainly are not recommending that at this time for this new virus.”"

Gee, it's almost like these so-called experts don't have any idea what they're talking about and just make shit up from week to week.

January, February and March, "masks do not work! Do not buy them!"

April and May, masks magically not only work, but you are *required* to wear one everywhere!

And these messages have been spread by the same "experts": CDC, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. surgeon general.

Anyone have the statement from the CDC completely reversing themselves after their March statement? Would be hilarious to find out what their reasoning was and to see if anyone at all even bothered to take them to task.

642 "Illinois State Reps also voted for a pay raise for themselves."

What they actually did was NOT vote to reject an automatic COLA that is built into each year's budget. This system was adopted some years ago for the express purpose of sparing them from actually having to vote FOR pay raises.

I see Illinois State Reps also voted for a pay raise for themselves.

--

That's simply astounding, even coming from them.
What an unconscionable thing to do at a time when 30 million have lost their jobs and countless small business have been closed forever. They should be boiled in oil, but it's IL... so they'll likely be handily reelected.

Posted by: Lady in Black, sans mask at May 25, 2020 07:36 AM

If the media does not report it, how many people in IL even know about the pay raise? I would guess it's around 10%.

So yeah, easy re-election for these despicable crooks.

But, in this day and age of having information literally in the palm of your hand, I blame the people of IL. If they really cared, they would keep up to speed on this stuff and vote accordingly. Since they don't, they are getting the representation (or lack there of) they deserve.

One would think that if this happened:

Mayor Lori Lightfoot had dispatched three squad cards and two unmarked cars filled with armed officers. A representative from the mayor's office was also present.

The Tara Reade story was all over conservative blogs and Twitter.

Reason I am interested is that this is my police officer brother's area of Chicago he patrols. So he may have been involved or at least know of it.

But I don't want to look stupid and e-mail him about it if it's some made up bullshit like Gateway Pundit likes to do a lot.

Yeah, I will probably take that tact.

I tend to keep it light with him anyway when I send him stories I find. "Just another typical day in Chicago, eh?" Or something like that.

Typically he doesn't have anything to add to what is known, because almost all the stories I send him are North Side cases.

Whenever I start freaking out about stuff going on in Chicago or IL, he just keeps reminding me "Dude, it's like any other day around here on the South Side. No one is acting any differently. Businesses may be closed, but everyone is otherwise out and about as normal. The only difference is we're not being asked to enforce anything at all."

How about instead you show a graph or table of actual black voting patterns since LBJ. Because that will prove that Biden was correct and the BET magical negro is as delusional as White conservatives. Biden told the truth, but the truth is now racist is case you haven't gotten the memo.
