The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

Memorial Day isn't just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that's a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It's a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. Pete Hegseth


Quote II

I only regret that I have but one life to lose for my country. Nathan Hale


Quote III

“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God such men lived.” George S. Patton


Quote IV

“All we are seeking is the same consideration and trust that is being tendered toward the liquor stores, abortion clinics, and Walmart,”Rev. Courtney Lewis


Quote V

Our debt to the heroic men and valiant women in the service of our country can never be repaid. They have earned our undying gratitude. America will never forget their sacrifices. Because of these sacrifices, the dawn of justice and freedom throughout the world slowly casts its gleam across the horizon.― President Harry S. Truman


America will never forget? I am having my doubts Harry.

I don't think my uncle lost his life in WWII fighting Nazis so that the governor of Michigan and the mayor of Chicago could play wannabe Nazis.

What good is Twitter? I've learned you can't tell people #LearnToCode or ask them if they are retarded. A new parasite that attaches to the genitals of its host has been discovered on Twitter

A researcher from the University of Copenhagen's Natural History Museum of Denmark was checking out extreme close-ups of the North American millipede on Twitter (as one does) when she noticed white spots on its carapace. While the specks might look like nothing to most people, to Ana Sofia Reboleira they indicated the presence of a parasitical fungi not seen on this species of millipede before.

Will it make a difference at the next election that the political party who wants to rob you of your liberty is the Democrats?

People just want to be people. Honest hard working people want to be just that, hard working people. Meet the new outlaws.

Apparently, it's not so clandestine.

I looked on Craigslist and since May 1, seven barbers and stylists in L.A. have advertised their services. Including Carmelle.

Carmelle, who asked me not to use her last name for fear of being fined, used to work for a salon in Santa Monica before the pandemic hit. She was furloughed on March 17.

Her manager, incorrectly, told her she was not eligible for unemployment while on furlough. So for a month she stayed home, with no income, worrying about how she was going to pay her bills and her rent.

She tried applying for jobs with delivery services and grocery stores, but didn't hear back.

"Ok, what am I gonna do?" she asked herself. "It's not like I can go get another career. I've been a hair stylist for 22 years."

So she pulled her grandmother's barber chair out of storage, hung a mirror on the wall of her living room, and stocked up on bleach and Barbicide and masks.

Then, she wrote her ad.

"I was like, 'I don't think people are gonna drive all the way out here to Compton to see me,'" she told me over the phone. "And when my phone had over 100 texts in one day, I was like, 'oh my goodness, what am I gonna do?' Is a lot of people out there that needs haircuts!'"

Speaking of haircuts, I'm scheduled for one on Tuesday. It's either that or join the Duck Dynasty crowd.

Electric drag racer. Pretty damn fast but what kind of range does it have?

History was made recently when this bright orange dart of a car became the first electric car to eclipse 200 miles per hour in the quarter mile. Running a 7.520 second pass at 201.07 miles per hour, the Current Technology 2.0 dragster ran a world record pass in only its second pass of the day. Of course, this isn’t near as quick as the professional Top Fuel folks are running, but it’s a milestone that deserves celebration nonetheless.

We all know that the CDC is a top notch government agency looking out for what is best for you.

In a follow-up piece to "NYC's Rat Population Hit With Hunger Crisis During Lockdowns," the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has published a new warning that rats across the country are becoming hangry as they scavenge for food amid the closure of restaurants triggered by COVID-19 lockdowns.

"Community-wide closures have led to a decrease in food available to rodents, especially in dense commercial areas. Some jurisdictions have reported an increase in rodent activity as rodents search for new sources of food. Environmental health and rodent control programs may see an increase in service requests related to rodents and reports of unusual or aggressive rodent behavior," the CDC warning read.

The CDC said some regions have reported "an increase in rodent activity" and cautioned about their aggressive behavior.

An urban rodentologist recently said NYC rats have become hostile and are resorting to cannibalism as food becomes scarce with restaurants closed.

Last night at our grill out we spoke about Michigan, Chicago and several other jurisdictions. I made the observation, "The Revolutionary War was fought over less." That observation seems to be spreading.

What started out as a freedom-loving celebration of the Second Amendment ahead of Memorial Day turned into Gov. Andy Beshear being hanged in effigy and protesters chanting outside the governor’s mansion.

The Second Amendment rally, meant to inspire people “about what it really means to be FREE,” according to Take Back Kentucky, attracted at least 100 people on Sunday. They gathered from 1-4 p.m. at the Kentucky State Capitol in Frankfort.

Manure is a valuable commodity. Urine could be on the moon.

Earth, which means they’ll have to get creative with the limited resources on the lunar surface. Moon dirt is a great building material and there’s water in the form of ice at the south pole that can be turned into rocket fuel. But the hottest commodity of them all may very well turn out to be an astronaut’s own pee.

Earlier this year, a team of European researchers demonstrated that urea, the second most common compound in human urine after water, can be mixed with moon dirt and used for construction. The resulting material is a geopolymer, which has similar properties to concrete and could potentially be used to build landing pads, habitats, and other structures on the moon.

Geopolymers are regularly used on Earth as an eco-friendly alternative to conventional concrete. One of the main ingredients in concrete is cement, which requires a high-temperature 22manufacturing process that releases a lot of CO2. But a geopolymer doesn’t require much energy at all. Instead of cement, it uses pulverized rocks or fly ash, the waste product from burning coal. When this is mixed with water and certain reactive compounds, it creates a putty-like material that can be cast into desired shapes before it’s left to dry.

The ONT Musical Interlude


&&&


Tonight's last selection is a hat tip from Hrothgar.

Via Wikipedia - In 2005, the band released a two-song CD single for the family of Andrew K. Farrar, Jr., a sergeant in the U.S. Marine Corps who was killed on January 28, 2005, in Al Anbar, Iraq, during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Farrar, who was a big fan of the Murphys, made a request to his family that if he did not survive his tour of duty, he wanted "The Fields of Athenry" to be played at his funeral. The single features a slower version of "The Fields of Athenry" that was originally recorded and placed in Farrar's casket, although the band decided to release the alternate version. The disc also features the track "Last Letter Home," which was written about Farrar and was featured on the Murphys' 2005 album The Warrior's Code. All of the proceeds from the $10 single go to the Sgt. Andrew Farrar Memorial Fund and can be purchased through the band's website or at one of their shows."

Graduations are still occurring. Mike Rowe with a profound speech.............

The best commencement speech never given, but should be.

OK .. it’s time for you to hear something – to learn something – that may, but should not, come as a complete surprise.

You are the victims of a terrible fraud. You have just completed your travels through an educational system that had no real intention of educating you … at least not too much.

You’re pretty hot at research right now, aren’t you? While those skills are still with you, perhaps you would like to put them to work studying the start of compulsory government education in the early part of the last century. Do you really think that the goal of our compulsory government education system has been to actually educate you?

Did you study H. L. Mencken? In 1924 he wrote an article for the American Mercury where he defined the true aim of our then-fledgling system of education. Listen carefully:

The aim of public education is not to fill the young of the species with knowledge and awaken their intelligence. … Nothing could be further from the truth. The aim … is simply to reduce as many individuals as possible to the same safe level, to breed and train a standardized citizenry, to put down dissent and originality. That is the aim in the United States and that is its aim everywhere else.

Obviously not wearing a helmet is a big deal for this Genius Award Winner.

LONDON, ONT. -- A 21-year-old man is facing impaired driving charges after allegedly operating a go-kart while under the influence.

Shortly after midnight Saturday, St. Thomas police stopped the suspect on Centennial Avenue.

Witnesses say the driver was speeding with no lights on and not wearing a helmet, just a cowboy hat.

17 No offense, but Toby Keith is a fag with retarded poops.

But I've always been kind of tepid about patriotic songs in general, so, there it is.

Just got back from visiting my son in SLC, Utah. Felt almost normal. Ate in restaurants, even.

Now I'm back in CO, and my good mood has fled, like pigeons in the market square.

And until I can go to the office without a mask, I shall continue working at home.

Mask-less and pants-less is the new normal.

50 I was in a bad mood today.

A really bad mood, like kind of a "I want to burn my whole life as it presently exists down to the ground and sleep for two weeks not giving a sh*t about any responsibilities" bad mood.

Then I picked up my daughter from her mom's. It is somewhat unusual, given that she is 15 that she should want to spend much time talking to me, but for some reason she seemed to have a desire to do so. She hung out in the living room with me. Talked to me about her thoughts on things. Asked me what I thought about certain things.

Then we went for a driving lesson on the the farm vehicle (John Deere Gator) down to the park on our long single lane country road. And she's getting pretty good.

And she was smiling looking out and around as she drove. And she's becoming a little adult. And I love her and am very proud of her.

And I don't want to burn everything down anymore.

I hope you folks had a great Memorial Day and I thank all of you the served and offer prayers to all of you that sacrificed a loved one to freedom.

Remember back in February, the Wu Flu had escaped China, it was known it could come here. Yet DeBolshevik, Dems, and their PR firms AKA the media told people to come to Chinatowns, see a show, the only thing to fear was fear, we want all the foreigners to come on in..

Did they actually plan to let the virus into New York, knowing it would spread rapidly inside the city and then to the rest of the nation? Knowing it would ruin Trump's economy yet they themselves would get bailed out by Nanny Botox? It would be dangerous and stupid to try, but these are dangerous and stupid people

59 I hope that the somber note of the Memorial Day in the midst of the Fraudulent Fever, serves to remind people.

We are at war.

No less a Cold War than the U.S. vs. USSR from the fifties to eighties, but now an internal one.

All of US, vs. the very same pernicious commie influence that the Progressives seeded into this nation in the early 20th Century, and which the USSR helped fertilized, water and grow, over the decades.

We can root them out, and we can win.

I think it'll be costly. The Viruscam certainly is proving to be exactly, that.

But they've done us a huge favor in the doing. They've given us target lists which we until now, did not know.

Enough on that, for now. It's winding down Memorial Day, and it is to honor the fallen.

Let's be worthy of they and their sacrifice, shall we?

The other customers went total lynch mob on her and the video went viral.

Did they actually plan to let the virus into New York, knowing it
would spread rapidly inside the city and then to the rest of the nation?

I think that they were just as surprised as everyone else that China intentionally spread the disease all over the world.


Of course as soon as it was clear China has sent the virus to NYC we should have closed the public transit system there.

One of the things I learned (well, heard and then verified through subsequent research) from watching The Crown on Netflix was that Edward VIII's lover, Wallis Simpson, was probably banging Joachim von Ribbentrop at the same time she was carrying on with Edward prior to his abdication--and probably passing on British government secrets Edward allowed her access to.

I think the UK really dodged a bullet when he abdicated. For that matter, maybe we all did.

The one episode that I didn't get recorded was "Stalingrad", which is unfortunate, as I haven't seen it for several years, and I haven't been able to stream it anywhere. It used to be on quite regularly on American Heroes Channel (old History Channel) some years back, but it must not be politically or socially correct for today. The programs about WWII that they show now aren't as well produced, in my opinion.

141 120 Hi Eris - I was the one who commented about "The World at War" series on an earlier thread. Thank you so much for the link to City Journal about this series. Have bookmarked it and will give it a read.

The one episode that I didn't get recorded was "Stalingrad", which is unfortunate, as I haven't seen it for several years, and I haven't been able to stream it anywhere. It used to be on quite regularly on American Heroes Channel (old History Channel) some years back, but it must not be politically or socially correct for today. The programs about WWII that they show now aren't as well produced, in my opinion.

Putting on my conspiracy theory hat for a moment...



Remember back in February, the Wu Flu had escaped China, it was
known it could come here. Yet DeBolshevik, Dems, and their PR firms AKA
the media told people to come to Chinatowns, see a show, the only thing
to fear was fear, we want all the foreigners to come on in..



Did they actually plan to let the virus into New York, knowing it
would spread rapidly inside the city and then to the rest of the nation?
Knowing it would ruin Trump's economy yet they themselves would get
bailed out by Nanny Botox? It would be dangerous and stupid to try, but
these are dangerous and stupid people

158 One of the things I learned (well, heard and then verified through subsequent research) from watching The Crown on Netflix was that Edward VIII's lover, Wallis Simpson, was probably banging Joachim von Ribbentrop at the same time she was carrying on with Edward prior to his abdication--and probably passing on British government secrets Edward allowed her access to.

I think the UK really dodged a bullet when he abdicated. For that matter, maybe we all did.

Still, Democrats gotta Democrat.

I'd have enjoyed a drink and conversation with the man. Probably wouldn't have agreed on too much, but he was never a traitor and always a Patriot.

181 CBD I didn't even look at the CDC document, just a modest attempt at humor based on the pull quotes.

In a prior geologic epoch I actually read the MMWR (Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report - ya know, fun reading, like a car magazine or Field & Stream), from the CDC, as part of the work situation. I wasn't a vaccine/public health guy, but had a piece of public health issues for that gig.

Anyway, the folks from CDC we worked with, their international side, were quite good back then.

I have a feeling there is quite a dip in quality in their core activities, judging by the train wreck we've been watching since mid-April. Alas, as it's the US in 2020, I have zero expectation we'll get any actual review or fixes. Nor any review of why/how the WH team *seems* to have not neutralized their bad advice, at any point.

They're really trying to do the marriage before babies thing, but I suspect they may be frisky and you know how Nature finds a way. (I've long since considered them Common Law married under Okie rules, just in case; don' wan' no little bastardos.)

IMHO, the drill for masks should be this: wear one when out in public if you have symptoms of respiratory tract disease: sniffles, sneezing, coughing. Even if it is just seasonal allergies. Other people can't tell that. And wear one in an effort to self-protect is you are in one of the cohorts uniquely vulnerable to the flu (or the WuFlu). Nobody else needs to wear one.

And, if you have a cold, or the flu, or the WuFlu? Stay the fuck home, unless you have an essential errand to perform. Don't go to work! Don't go to school!

Well she had to be hard headed to go out with me as I was then. She was a soul-stealer too.

208 Thanks, Puddlegum- will try that out! Will just mention that the BBC did produce another great war series -only this one is called "The First World War". This one was done in the mid 60's, (1964?) and since I really didn't know much about the history and background of the European alliances at the time, I streamed all the episodes (on YouTube) in a couple day period around the 100th anniversary (2014) of the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand). It was an excellent history lesson told by survivors who were caught up in the senseless horror. Narrated by John Mills, if I remember. I don't know if you could find it to stream now, but it would be worth a look. "The World at War" is still the best WWII documentary, however.

225 I remember when my parents took my brother and I on a horse excursion deep into Canyon de Chelley, where spider rock is in northern Arizona. (you'd recognize the pictures even if you don't recognize the name) It's on the reservation, and if you hire a Navajo guide, you can go deep into some canyons with some old Anasazi ruins that normally are impossible to get to.

There were about 10 persons on this ride, and it had rained a bit. We were riding these indian ponies, and I will never forget seeing the horse in front of me suddenly deciding it's saddle was bothering it, so it threw itself on the ground and rolled on its back. A good looking girl, about 20 or so, was riding it, and she probably should have been killed, or at least badly injured. But she was incredibly cool minded, and I remember seeing her, like it was in slow motion, pull both her feet up as that horse went down, get them on the saddle, and then launch herself clear of that horse just as it went over. It was an incredible athletic performance, and it saved her life.

In the future I will try harder to read my boss's inscrutable irrational and completely dumbshit mind to determine what it is he really wants me to do so that he doesn't have to warp time and space to make the past match whatever bullshit his future and present mind claims he wanted me to do.

247 On this trip into the back canyons with the Navajo guide, it was clear that while the Navajo are never extremely friendly under any circumstances, our guide was especially surly at having to go back there with us. When we came across a dwelling (one we found had about 50 rooms, with the roof timbers still intact, and some artifacts still there, like the grinding stones, etc) you could tell he was bothered by all of us stupid white people going inside them and poking around. To him, these were all ancient haunted places full of dead men's bones and evil spirits, and they had nothing at all to do with his People. He stayed with the horses down at the stream, he wouldn't get close to any of that old stuff.

it astounds me that Cuomo, and Deh Blahsio, and all of their fans don't seem to have a clue that they're killing the city they all rely on for their lives. I suspect that's a leftist mental disease, they all take for granted that just because something has existed, it will always exist no matter how badly they mistreat it.

They don't understand at all that Cities are living things too, and they can be killed if you treat them badly enough.

Some of them have compared this to 9/11. Bad comparison - that was sharp and hard, like a bullet wound, but then it was over and healing could begin. This is slow, and cumulative, like a cancer on that city that consumes more and more of the host every day. And they're cheering it on, the fools.

I think so. Some of the U.S. army's camel herd was sold at auction, and at least some of them found their way to British Columbia, and were used to haul freight through the Fraser Canyon during the Cariboo Gold rush. In the height of Summer, that area gets very hot and dry indeed.

My horse was inherited Mrs. Sock's friend. Her father had passed away and she knew we would ride him. He had been a parade horse. If you stopped on a trail ride for any extended period he would do the foot step in place. Great horse! His name was Duke. My sister in law invited some of her coworkers out for a ride once. Her supervisor said he knew how to ride so I let him take Duke. As they were getting ready and we were helping the last couple get mounted up, Duke began doing his at rest dance. Guy pulled hard on the reins and Duke launched him about 10 feet. To his credit, he got back on and after they got back he made sure I knew what a great horse Duke was.

Well I'm not sure that the polls are accurate--but yes, I think that most of those living in these cities are brainwashed...or in on the con.

But there are is still a large minority that suffers under these terrible and/or evil people and their policies.

And yes, GWB, we need to find more ways to educate them.

I find it very hard to get through to the Karens and others. they make every decision based on vague ideas and or their emotions. Logic does not work with them at all, in my experience.

339 Re riding dromedaries (i.e., camels).
It is not very comfortable, even using the special saddles. I've ridden them several times in Egypt and Jordan. Camels have an odd gait, and spit. Their sound is a kind of "grumble"...really revolting imho. But they do work in sand. If you ever ride one, you have to hold on tight after you get on, as they lurch significantly to rise.

Horses, at least for me, are a glorious ride. A good canter in open air is a feeling like no other. Magical. With the right horse, you are one with the animal.

But they can be unpredicatable. My worst accident was riding at a walk out to the field where we had the jumps set up. It was a new horse--fresh from the race track, and he was a real jackass. My bad for not being more cautious with him--he bucked me like crazy while I was adjusting my stirrups. I was on crutches for over 6 weeks--riding in and out of NYC on the train --sometimes standing as there were no seats.

Ah to be 25 again!

363 > There have been multiple incidents here of bears opening doors (sometimes after climbing up on decks)

The big brownies here will peel the siding right off a cabin if they think there's food in there.

They just laugh at standard roll-up garage doors. Every few years we get one that figures out that people often keep dog food inside garages, and of course that bear is basically doomed from that point on. Once they associate humans with food, you pretty much have to kill them.

364 QID,
Yes you are so right about suiting the horse to the event. Dressage, like ballet, was always just out of reach for me. I tried but there were some moves that always eluded me (flying change---glorious when it happened but it occurred only episodically).

I keep thinking I'll go ahead an buy a horse now that I am not in airplanes every week for work...but haven't followed through.

Polar bears eating whale carcasses in Kaktovik, Alaska:

(note: some of these pics are quite bloody)

They show up for whaling season every year, to scavenge the leftovers from the Native whaling operations.

A sadly-deceased friend of mine lived in Kaktovik for a long time, and still has family there. His Facebook page always had interesting shots from the fam when whaling season came around.

Droce around the closest burg to the ranch Sunday. 6 churches were holding services, 3 of them indoors. Sadly, mine was not one of them. In the 10 plus weeks since Emperor Jay shut things down, the only attempt at contact was a coice mail from one of the elders on Friday. I played some phone tag and then gave up. I'm not angry just sad at their lack of fight for God's gift. On a better note, Mrs. Sock and I visited 2 rural cemeteries near us and there were loads of flags planted on Vet"s graves. We replaced 30 old and ready to retire flags with new ones. I have some flags to retire tomorrow.

Ranchers in South Texas used to pay a nice bounty for those. Tom, Mom or Kitten, mattered not.

ONE mature bobcat can kill over 20 fawn per year, and when the 10,000 acre Trophy Deer Ranch is charging *more* than $10k for a hunt + Trophy Fee...well, the ranchers don't like the bobcats.

Living in Alberta, I have seen moose many times. Even took a picture of one, once. Had some close encounters with Lynx. More beautiful than scary, but would not want to tangle with one.

I met a big cow moose one time, driving on a narrow bush road at night. I came to a full stop, and she ran right at my Suburban, and then dodged to her right, and brushed by the left side of the vehicle, and folded in the driver's side mirror. Then she ran straight up a near-vertical embankment and out of sight. I think the trucks lights had partially blinded her.

Don't ever let those dogs off the leash.

I've seen what a 35 lb. female bobcat can do to a 100 lb. whitetail doe.

Deer didn't stand a chance.

Frankly, I don't want to get into a fight to the death with a 13 lb. domestic tabby cat.

When a cat gets "switched on", it is an incredibly strong thing. Not just muscle strength, but it's bone structure is rock-hard, dense and capable of bearing muscle-loads which would snap our limbs like twigs.

Puddy Tat can ruin your day.

The aforementioned Ms. Bobcat crushed that doe's skull like we would crack a sunflower seed. One bite, after the pounce and clawing into position for the kill.

About 17 miles West of Fredricksburg, TX, on the best lease I've ever held, just outside of Harper, TX.

Thank you for the advice. That must have been an amazing sight to see how tough the bobcat could be.


My pups were safe behind our wall and gate when I saw the bobcat juvenile here.

Doggehs are terriers so think they are way big. Couple of summers ago they killed a juvenile coyote. Not sure they'd have been successful with an adult. Mostly they confine themselves to rodents and possums, raccoons and the like.

I'm a big softie on cats of all kinds. Just am.

Biggest Bobcat I've ever seen, was just behind the Shell Gas Station on JFK Boulevard, the main arterial leading into IAH Bush Intercontinental Airport, in North Houston.

About a 40lb.+ Tom, actively stalking prey, in broad daylight in the un-developed 1/4 acre behind the store.

He'd "stood tall" to eyeball some morsel or another. Grass was about 18" high, and on his hind legs, he was a good foot taller than the grass.

Stout and muscular, not wain and frail.

Mr. Bobcat eats well when there are no greater natural predators about.

Then one day there was a bobcat up in a mesquite tree that hangs over our fence into the yard, and she was going nuts trying to get it to come down and fight her. I think it was coming in the yard for either water or the birds and quail that I feed.I had a really hard time getting the dog back into the house so we could just watch to see where the cat went through the windows.I now have two cavalier king Charles dogs, and they watch out for each other, but I don't like to let them out very long at night, in case Mr. bobcat comes back.

I'll chime in on an unrelated subject, but it explains how you get a lime in a bottle. First get a lime tree 'whip', grow it into a full sized lime tree. Tame a bottle when the lime is just born, and put the twig in the bottle and stake it up with a 4x4 to hold the bottle. TADA! You have a lime in a bottle. Fill with GIN. Put on the bar and don't let anybody have any.

I have friends in Slovakia who put bottles on the buds of pear, plum, apricot....let the fruit grow in the bottles...and put the appropriate palinka in the bottles with the fruit.

That's this all black long haired bundle of fearless love.

She got out the front door once, and boldly confronted a 20 lb. neighborhood stray tomcat on the front porch.

Not to challenge him.

I know the general area you are mentioning near IAH. Wow, would be way cool to see a bobcat there.
But almagordo, you are totally right to protect your doggehs.

We don't have them roaming around near our country place in VA--not sure they are even in that part of the state, but they sure are in the mountain area of VA. Amazing to think of them in a big city like Houston though. Very Glad I have a wall and gate around our house here--and not just to protect against bobcats, honestly.

Enjoy the OJ with your vodka Menack. Tried a new cocktail this weekend--Alperol Spritz (Sparkling wine, soda, Alperol, OJ). Very nice--but not sure it has as many medicinal properties as vodka with either tonic or OJ.

60s were a trip, man.

Posted by: tongue tie-dyed Miklos at May 26, 2020 02:29 AM (QzkSJ)



Early '70s for me, bro. Early '70s.

Never did the acid though. My fears set limits, even then.

Whisky, you say? Sure, let's get Mom to haul us off to the Balboa Park Naval Hospital for alcohol poisoning. When I was in the 7th grade.

It was then I learned, my brother's "friends", did not have my best interests, at heart.

Nor did they his, but he hasn't learned that, even to this day.

They all reminisce about their various times in the penitentiary systems. And they're welcome to those conversations.

Long as I can remain 1,000 miles distant, that's OK with me.

I've never been arrested, in the system, imprisoned or etc.

And that is how I shall live out the remainder of my days.

Hasta la nite nite, Horde!

524 Speaking of cats. We had a cat when we bought two female ginue pigs for the kids. We made sure they were both the same sex, so we wouldn't end up with hundreds of giniue pigs. Of course they were both pregnant at the time, unbeknownts to me and we ended up with 20 and a bigger cage. Long story short, it all got returned and I'm banned for life from the pet shop. Don't tell experian.

Let's hope the entire portfolio gets pushed out the door before Ratcliffe gets his hands on the steel doors and shuts them closed.


I have a feeling we are going to be underwhelmed with Ratcliffe's performance.

626 Destroying a lot of small businesses is in the lefts interest also. Big business has always been lefty and more easily controlled than small businesses.

Would you rather have one campaign "donation" from Jeff Berserk, or a hundred donations from teh likes of Mom's Diner & General Store?

629 Holy cow, people have lost their fucking minds. And common sense, but mostly their common sense. When we played golf yesterday, we could load the bags on the cart, but only one person could ride. So the wife took the cart and I walked. And everyone had to remain at least 6 feet apart. Except when you're getting the clubs from the bag.

What useless retardery. I'm so over these mindless rules that do nothing.

630 I have nothing against Walmart, but driving by lots and lots of closed small business that are closed to get to Walmart which is open and selling lots of stuff besides food, makes me mad.

631 I knew McMasters was Flynns replacements but I just learned that he asked susan rice for advice on who his aide should be- the answer was Eric Ciamerella. !! McMaster also apparently allowed Rice to keep her security clearance.

Posobiac on twitter says its significant that Mcmaster was fired 4 days after McCabe.

The plot threads seem to be coming together.

632 That guy is a beast. I hope he goes to the FBI as the interim Director after PDTS shit cans Wray.

633 Grenell might be leaving, as far as I can tell Kash Patel isn't.

635 I'm surprised people are not leaving these lefty Nazi states in droves. Guess the money is too good.

Stand on the red box.
Do not cross the red lines.
Wait until called.

All of this is to practice for the lines and waiting of socialsim.

640 In a rational world, congregationalists would associate the Charge of the Lightfoot Brigade with the Democrat Party, but I bet somewhere down the line, the Dems will blame Trump for this. And Herd Stupidity will kick in as usual, and the congregationalists will agree. Sad.
