The Quotes Of The Day


Quote I

Quote II

Here lieth the lesson for government officials and policy makers: Think carefully before crossing the lines that give reasonable men pause. David Cole


Quote III

Quote IV

“People should not be roaming around. It’s not fair to the communities they are roaming to. People seem to think they don’t have symptoms so they’re ok, but it’s not.”
Mark Canniford, mayor of Weston-super-Mare and a Liberal Democrat member of North Somerset Council

This bloke wouldn't know democracy if it came up and bitch slapped him in the face.


Quote V

The cries of racism weren't at a full crescendo when MAGA supporters were blamed for an ugly racist incident. However a little research once again confirms our beliefs that white liberals are the most racist of all.

On Monday around 8am, a white woman named Amy Cooper was walking her dog unleashed in a protected area of New York City’s Central Park, a wooded space called The Ramble.


Christian Cooper (no relation), a Black man and a bird-watcher, asked Amy to leash her dog. Dogs must be leashed in Central Park from 9am to 9pm, but in the Ramble they must be leashed at all times. Christian later said that he had been worried about the delicate ecosystem of The Ramble and the way in which the dog might affect the birds.


Amy, clearly offended, responded by saying that she was going to call the police on him. The video Christian took ended up online, and almost instantly went viral.

In response to the video, many on social media began to speculate and insist that Amy Cooper was a Trump supporter and a member of the “MAGA” movement.

However, campaign contribution information — with donations to Democrats such as Barack Obama, Pete Buttigieg, and John Kerry — leaked online earlier today appeared to suggest that Amy actually identifies as a liberal. This matters, because in this political era, during this most critical US presidential election, it is necessary that we understand and recognize that white violence transcends party lines and political ideology.

In the video that Christian recorded, Amy can be heard saying, "I'm taking a picture and calling the cops,” as she appears to strangle or roughly handle her dog with the pet’s collar. "I'm going to tell them there's an African American man threatening my life."

Protests Fill the Streets of Minneapolis In Response to George Floyd’s Death In Police Custody

Protests have erupted in the streets of Minneapolis following the death of George Floyd in police custody as illustrated by a live-stream of the protest from Unicorn Riot journalist Niko Georgiades.

George Floyd was a Minnesota man who died in police custody. A video of his death surfaced, showing a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on the back of his neck for several minutes as a handcuffed Floyd begged for help and told him and other officers that he couldn’t breathe.

A little humor on this Tuesday that feels like a Monday.............

Can't you just hear the Thurston Howell III voice, Lovey, how will we travel safely to our next yacht excursion?


It’s a modern quandary for the ultra-wealthy: a yacht awaits at harbor, but how to safely reach it without risking exposure to the germ-ridden masses?

Global aviation company VistaJet has a solution. Spurred by member demand, clients can reserve a freshly sanitized jet to fly them to a yacht moored in Malta (where, as it happens, VistaJet is based). Lest anyone be worried that the island nation itself is germ-ridden, a press release notes that “The World Health Organization singled out Malta as a role model for other countries in the fight against Covid-19.

Don't you wish you had a job where you could mess with someone and not get into serious trouble? Crane driver has fun by repeatedly blocking sunbather’s light

It’s little moments of joy that can help get you through a long shift at work on a hot sunny day – especially if you’re stuck at the top of a crane on your own. So when one crane driver spotted a sunbather making the most of the lovely weather several hundred feet below he decided to have some fun. A video posted to Twitter shows the sunbather lounging on a pink towel on a patch of grass, with the operator moving his crane to block out the poor man’s sun. Speaking to a collague on a Walkie-Talkie, the crane operator laughs as he says: ‘I put the shade on this geezer, look. He’s moving Fred! I’m filming it.

Neutered dogs have more balls than the Governor of Minnesota. Pro-choice does not apply to the state fair.

Yesterday brought the news that this year’s edition of the Minnesota State Fair is canceled. Dating back to our territorial days, the fair was last canceled in 1948 as a result of the polio epidemic. The cancelation is only the fifth time in the fair’s history. State authorities advised the fair board that COVID-19 “would still be with us at dangerous levels” at the end of August, according to Health Commissioner Jan Malcolm at the daily press briefing (audio below). Thanks to measures taken to delay the peak of infections in the state, authorities warned that the worse is yet to come. It is sad news all the way around any way you slice it.

Yesterday the authorities attributed 33 new deaths to COVID-19, beating the previous high of 32 set the day before. The new total of deaths attributed to the disease is 842.

According to Malcolm, 27 of the 33 new deaths occurred among residents of long-term care facilities. The MDH Situation Update gives the number as 25 plus one in a group home (see screenshot below). The department sets the number of deaths among residents of long-term care facilities at 688 — just short of 82 percent of all deaths attributed to the disease.

Speaking of the governor of Minnesota, Faith groups have had enough of his abuse of power.

Faith-based groups say they will proceed with a lawsuit over Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz’s attendance restrictions for places of worship, despite his concession this weekend that churches can operate at 25% capacity.

Attorneys for the two churches say, based on Walz’s new order, they have dropped their request for a temporary restraining order, which was scheduled for a hearing in federal court Tuesday and, if granted, would have made them exempt from Walz’s restrictions. But the new restrictions continue to violate their religious liberties, and constitutional rights to free speech and assembly, said Katie Fulkerson, spokeswoman for the Upper Midwest Law Center.

“While Gov. Walz has changed his position on religious gatherings in order to avoid a judicial decision, his unilateral actions further demonstrate the need for our lawsuit,” Doug Seaton, the law firm’s president, said in a statement. “Any Minnesotan should be troubled by Governor Walz’s assertion that he can de facto make any executive order he wants so long as he keeps changing his executive order before becoming subject to judicial review.”


Hey churches of Minnesota, self-identify as abortion clinics. No muss or fuss then.

I've been known to mock the NFL commish, Roger Goodell. However, he may have more testosterone in his left index finger than the entire body of the MN governor, Tim Nobalz.

The NFL is planning for the best-case scenario when the season returns this fall and, according to one league official, this includes packed stadiums.

Executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent said Friday that the league is planning “to have full stadiums until the medical community tells us otherwise,” according to an NBC Sports report.

“Now remember when we’re talking — we’re talking about August, September. So there’s a lot that can happen here. So we’re planning for full stadiums.”

The NFL has had more time to figure all of this out than the other major sports, which were all blindsided by the shutdowns. The NFL had just entered into its off-season a few weeks before we all went into quarantine hovels. The only disruption was the draft, which ended up being this weird, social-distance remote affair that NFL commissioner Roger Goodell hosted from his basement. I hate the format that was adopted for the draft 10 years ago so this year didn’t bother me that much.

To the University of California system, In an essay of 250 words or less, please tell us why you shouldn't be wiped off the map of higher education.

The nearly 500,000 students enrolled in the California State University system’s 23 campuses should expect to pay full price for tuition this fall.

A spokeswoman for the system told The College Fix via email that tuition is expected to remain at the regular price despite the system’s decision to remain virtual for the fall 2020 semester.

“There are no plans to reduce tuition and campus-based mandatory fees at this time,” said CSU spokeswoman Toni Molle. “One of the benefits of announcing our planning now is to allow for additional professional development opportunities for faculty and staff over the summer which lead to the best possible learning experience that we can provide for students.”


I call Bull Shit, it will be the same old tired lesson plans taught by TAs who can barely speak English. Good luck finding your "professor" when you really want to.

Yeah, I'm cynical this evening.

What's the old saying, "If it has tits or tires, it will give you trouble"? Are tires about to be removed from this equation?

The Uptis Prototype tyre (Unique Puncture-proof Tire System) produced by Michelin and GM represents a major advancement toward achieving Michelin’s VISION concept, which was presented at the Movin’On Summit in 2017.

The VISION concept introduced by Michelin and GM includes four main pillars of innovation: airless, connected, 3D-printed and +100% sustainable (entirely renewable or bio-sourced materials) to reach a stage of sustainable mobility.

“Uptis is an ideal fit for propelling the automotive industry into the future and a great example of how our customers benefit when we collaborate and innovate with our supplier partners.” said Steve Kiefer, senior vice president, global purchasing and supply chain, General Motors

PREPARE, PREPARE, THE END IS NEAR! We can't scare you enough with Covid-19 shit, now we will scare you with Global Warming and hypothermia all at one time.

It’s going to get so hot in California that people swimming in mountain streams could freeze to death.Much of California, parts of Nevada and Arizona, will be getting their first extreme heat of the year and by Tuesday temperatures will reach 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 Celsius) in many places and stay there through Thursday. Car interiors will become death traps for children and pets left alone, outside work will be difficult, and the elderly will be at risk, the National Weather Service said.So much mountain snow will melt that streams will turn into icy torrents. Anyone venturing in to cool off risks being swept away and suffering “rapid onset of hypothermia,” the agency warned.“Daytime highs will be in the triple digits for most Valley locations, especially Tuesday through Thursday,” the weather service said. “Overnight temperatures will remain warm and offer little relief.”

The sentencing enhancer here is going to be funny. Drunk, not wearing a mask and being a Genius Award Winner.

Wild video shows a drunk zoo visitor in Poland jumping into a bear enclosure and wrestling one of the animals, according to a report.

The 23-year-old man was arrested for brawling the large brown bear named Sabrina at the Warsaw Zoo — and faces additional penalties because he was wasn’t wearing a mask, The Independent reported.

In the footage, the man, who was believed to be intoxicated, is seen Thursday already inside the exhibit as the female bear, Sabrina, approaches him.

He then jumps into a moat inside the enclosure to escape Sabrina’s advances — but the animal follows into the water after him.

Two new heroines of mine. First, from the Ukraine:

A woman is told she must wear a mask to be served at the post office. She strips off, removes her panties, and ties them around her head for an impromptu face mask.

And second, is this gal, an LA "performance artist". She makes a skimpy bikini out of face masks and parades around nearly naked in a Trader Joe's parking lot. Note the heels and face-mask ankle bands.

16 Hey everybody. Thanks for the ONT MisHum. Good music choices.

Just FYI MisHum: the University of California system is a *separate system* than the California State University system. The UC is of course the more "glamorous," esteemed set of campuses. Yes, we have two parallel public university systems in California. Don't ask me why.

And then there's a whole network of community colleges, which IMHO are oftentimes the best value for the money if you want a good college or trade education.

48 Re Whitmer's ghastly makeup job:

I was reading about Queen Elizabeth I today. Turns out she had smallpox scars, so wore a thick coat of clown-white makeup all the time, to keep up her imagine as "the virgin queen."

The makeup contained lead, and the remover contained mercury. Nevertheless, she made it to about 70 years of age.

50 George Floyd was a Minnesota man who died in police custody. A video of his death surfaced, showing a Minneapolis police officer kneeling on the back of his neck for several minutes as a handcuffed Floyd begged for help and told him and other officers that he couldn't breathe.

I watched the video. What's especially chilling, aside from seeing a man die right in front of you, is the nonchalance, even glee, of the cop who kills him.

62 Re Whitmer's ghastly makeup job:

I was reading about Queen Elizabeth I today. Turns out she had smallpox scars, so wore a thick coat of clown-white makeup all the time, to keep up her imagine as "the virgin queen."

The makeup contained lead, and the remover contained mercury. Nevertheless, she made it to about 70 years of age.
Posted by: qdpsteve at May 26, 2020 10:20 PM (L2ZTs)


I read once that toward the end of her life, a courtier who was in a dispute with her broke into her dressing room to continue the argument, saw her without her wig and makeup and false teeth, and was immediately dragged off and executed.

Whitmer no doubt wishes she had the same power.

68 According to Malcolm, 27 of the 33 new deaths occurred among residents of long-term care facilities.

This is what pisses me off about the hysteria. Ever been to a long-term care facility? I have. My mom was 93 when she was sent to one. These are the places where hospitals send patients, usually old people, when the hospital can't do anything more for them. I apologize to anyone who has a loved one at one of these facilities. It hurts. But most of the people at these facilities who are dying of Chinese Cooties, are at the end of their life. If they hadn't died of Chinese Cooties, it would have been pneumonia or influenza. My mom got pneumonia.

Watch the statement from the police spokesman, it's unreal. He was resisting arrest, and then they noticed that he was having "medical distress".

140 "To the University of California system, In an essay of 250 words or less, please tell us why you shouldn't be wiped off the map of higher education."

Minor nitpick, UC and CSU aren't the same thing. Though UC plans to mostly screw over students with full tuition prices for online courses as well. With some exceptions for things that can't be done online like labs.

Hopefully large numbers of students will withdraw for the upcoming quarter/semester and bring some pain to these campuses for trying to pull this.

Hope everyone is doing well. New job is stressful and I am struggling to learn what I am doing but hey, it's a job. It doesn't pay that great but it's a job. Thankful for that.

Hope you all are doing okay, being good to each other and staying healthy and sane. As sane as we can be during stupid times.

146 This is what pisses me off about the hysteria. Ever been to a long-term care facility? I have. My mom was 93 when she was sent to one. These are the places where hospitals send patients, usually old people, when the hospital can't do anything more for them. I apologize to anyone who has a loved one at one of these facilities. It hurts. But most of the people at these facilities who are dying of Chinese Cooties, are at the end of their life. If they hadn't died of Chinese Cooties, it would have been pneumonia or influenza. My mom got pneumonia.

This has to be told to every Karen who gets hysterical because you aren't wearing a mask.

Sweden has a higher death rate than their neighboring countries, and many of those deaths are in nursing homes as well.

One thing I noted from a media report was that the amount of life lost per CCPV death in nursing homes ranged from 5 to 9 months.

Apparently, that is about how long the average new admission survives in their nursing home system (some socialist-style crap, I'm sure).

To back it up with data, last year they had 10,000 nursing home deaths ytd; this year it is 11,000.

Their nursing homes sound more like hospices.

But in the US, it isn't much better:

According to the 2004 National Nursing Home Survey, nursing home residents who did not receive end-of-life (EOL) care had a mean length of time from admission of 837 days.

Median stay of 462 days. For EOL admissions, those numbers are lower.

Sad but true info there.

The ground is so moist here my new electric fence is working well, and with only one ground rod. I just completed the finishing touches, including rigging up a second gate on the upper side, and also tied in the other side back to the energizer to make a ring loop.

Voltage is reading 10kV all around (save for one odd spot that reads 11kV consistently -- I think it's some wave bouncing effect -- the charger is a pulsing type).

And dropping a copper pipe across it to short a strand to the dirt, it pops pretty good.

"So what 'science' is that, Governor? The science from the CDC, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. surgeon general which tells people that masks do not help to prevent the spread of COVID-19?

Or the science from the WHO which says that one only needs to wear a mask if coughing or sneezing?

For those tho don't recall Matt Parker and Trey Stone made a show about George Bush in 2001. It was widely expected that they would be trashing Bush and Republicans in general.


And....they didn't. The show made fun of dumb TV sitcom conventions. Their Bush was a little dull, but basically a good guy just trying to do normal sitcom husband things - think Kevin James or Ray Romano on their shows.


The show was quickly cancelled even though it got decent reviews and was often actually funny as it didn't deliver what Comedy Central wanted....and they would eventually go on to the likes of John Clown Nose Stewart....

The 23-year-old man was arrested for brawling the large brown bear named Sabrina at the Warsaw Zoo — and faces additional penalties because he was wasn’t wearing a mask

I've thought about that a lot, and I'm still not sure I have the answer, but here's my current guess: Trump upset his rice bowl. He had a good gig, talking about Conservative principles, and how they would apply to the situation at hand, playing up to the academic types in order to fit into that crowd. He was utterly unprepared for some guy with working-class speech patterns actually getting done a bunch of the stuff he advocated for. That wrecked the game of just talking sort of wistfully about it.

And when traveling to vacation homes in Michigan was specifically prohibited, by order of the Governor.

Sort of like Governor Pritzker's family traveling to Florida and Wisconsin to get away from Illinois' lockdown.

Unfortunately, video and picture's haven't come out from Governor Newsom's alleged trip to his wife family's ranch in Montana.

Most states do nowadays. The original idea was that "University of Neorahoma" was the research institution, which granted advanced degrees and so on, while "Neorahoma State College" was the undergraduate teaching institution, dedicated to cranking out schoolteachers, accountants, and the like.

At some point the "State College" people decided that they needed to be big pretty "Universities" too, and now almost every state has a completely unnecessary duplicate set of higher education bureaucracy.

Left-wing Portlanders support extending Portland's shutdown indefinitely. Already, about a dozen independently-owned restaurants in Portland have permanently gone out of business.

Keep the shutdown going for a few more weeks, and they'd better like eating at Applebee's, since chain restaurants are all that will be left in Portland.

No, it isn't. And I'd expect nursing home deaths to be higher than the average population because disease can travel easily and everyone is vulnerable.

That said, the numbers would be a damn sight lower if various governors hadn't deliberately sent infected people into their midst. They are guilty of causing the deaths of thousands of people. Reckless endangerment in the first degree, if not worse.

And not only is there virtually no outcry in the MSM, nothing will happen to these people. Nothing. This whole saga of these governors putting infectious people back into nursing homes - especially when they had access to hospital beds otherwise - has me angrier than I have been in years. I am having a hard time dealing with it. These people wantonly disregarded lives. Why? Are they stupid? Are they greedy? Are they cowed by their interest groups? Is it because it's just old people?

I am absolutely enraged.

Step 1: Parity in armament. We'll go to Wal-Mart in the morning and gun these kids up.

Step 2: Seizing their high ground (they live on the 2nd floor, we're on the first). They like to pick on the other neighbor girl because she's younger and smaller. We bait the trap with her. All alone in the courtyard, playing with her Polly Pocket.

When they come down to squirt her, the girl will go to their balcony with the buckets of water I've prepared. As they return from their escapade (when I holler at them), she bombs them with the buckets.

Step 3: Debellation. As they charge the stairs after their humiliation, thinking their guns are still better, she stands her ground with her new gun, as the boy chases them up from his hiding spot under my canopy. Trapped. Desolate. Nowhere to run.

Turns out the black guy made what could be seen as threatening remarks and when she asked what he would do, he said he would get the dog to come to him. Then he hauled out some doggie treats (which apparently he carries around with him for just this sort of situation) and proceeded to call her dog.

She perceived him as being a threat to her and her dog and called the cops. Whereupon the black guy played the race card. But maybe he told the cops the truth which is why he put the info on his facebook page.

I've only worn the mask a few times, when visiting the Children's Hospital, as they were demanding it to enter, and my daughter was in there, so no choice.

As soon as I got through check-in, it came off, and nobody there cared, because they are true professionals and know it's all silly, and they only go through the motions because they have to (and they've dropped that requirement anyway now, as they're in Aurora).

Aside from that, I've refused it, because I don't actually NEED to go most places in the Tri-County Health lockdown area. They can either let me in or fuck off. Every person so far has let me in, because they all know it's silly, too.

The best part is looking at the 99% of sheeple that wear them. The Maskless can always enjoy looking at the pained shame of the Masked. The mask can't hide that sad look in the eyes.

Well, I just looked at the Texas COVID Dashboard (the state updates all numbers daily) and NOW I see why the MSM isn't talking at all about any numbers any more! Texas is opening up more and more, and Deaths per Day and New Cases per day have been dropping dramatically for 10 days in a row, and all of the long term data curves are significantly flattened out. Texas peaked at 58 deaths per day; the last 2 days there were only 9 deaths per state per day; that's for the entire state. And remember, these were all cases that were hospitalized 2 weeks ago.

Whatever is going on elsewhere, this disease is over in Texas. All the numbers are now showing it.

If they took her dog, that is real messed up. I think both parties deserve a good shunning.



Unless her dog was bothering him specifically, it was none of the guy's business that the dog was off leash. Given that he apparently bragged on social media that he obliquely threatened her dog (he told her if she didn't listen to he, he was going to do something and she wouldn't like it and then tried to lure her dog over), he is as much in the wrong as she is. If she actually felt personally threatened by him, and that was not a lie to the police, he is more in the wrong.

421 Reflections on Cold War I and II --

Back during the Soviet/US standoff, we had one decided edge... Cash. The Soviets were poor, and so the bribes of our officials were few. They basically bankrupted themselves trying to keep up militarily, leaving little spare cash for major propaganda efforts in the US.

Sure, they had a lot of US sympaticos, so they could do it on the cheap, but they were really cash constrained, and their credit was for shit too.

Compare to China. They have oodles, can print more, and have founded all kind of propaganda outlets like TV Phoenix, and the numerous 'Confucius Institutes' at all our major universities.

They've been buying influence around the world; the Soviets had to do it with arms deals.

This is why whacking their finances is going to hurt them so much. Their ideology sucks even worse than the Soviet model, and they cannot feed themselves either.

Buy non-China, and give 'em a punch in their Commie dicks.

Yep, Texas is doing great. Active cases/total cases among the lowest of the 19 states I track.at 34%.
Recovered cases 24X fatalities.

But then again a lot of states are making real progress in both stats and the demon rats in the media never discuss it.

Stats I track show in MI, for example, with only 30% of total cases still active, over 6X recovered vs. fatalities and get this, currently hospitalized cases only 1.7% of total cases.

It is beyond ridiculous that Whitmer is not opening up the state more widely. The peak is long past there--despite the tough numbers that were logged earlier.

Posted by: redbanzai the Southerner at May 27, 2020 12:22 AM (nAiE/)

There's a problem with using the "feeling personally threatened" standard, and if you've ever been around a women having a psychotic breakdown, you know what it is. The threat has to be something that a Reasonable Person would consider to be threatening. Offering to give her dog a treat is shady, but it's not a legal threat. You want to know what a real threat is, I know a case where the guy pulled out his .357, held it to his wife's dogs head, cocked the gun and said he was gonna pull the trigger if she didn't do what he was telling her to do. Now THAT is a legal threat!

The guy in the park was being a dick, no argument, but it looks to me like he was real good at walking up to the line of what's legal, but never going across that line. Most importantly, he stayed calm and collected, while Karen was shrieking her fool head off. I've been around enough of those situations to know that it's an easy call who the police are going to side with when that happens.

Given the Democrats' wet-dream of 100% mail-in voting I'm wondering if there is a way to prevent ballot stuffing while still keeping who you voted for a secret.

Here's an idea. Every voter has a social security number and a date of birth, right? So
compute HMAC(SSN+DOB+Secret1)=QR using a one-way Hash-based Message
Authentication Code [HMAC]. Secret1 is randomly generated by the
election bureau for each ballot. Print it as a scannable QR code on the
ballot (think TicketMaster).

This gives each ballot
a unique QR such that no two ballots with different SSNs and birthdates
are the same, preventing duplication. The voter can later confirm that
his/her ballet was indeed counted by entering in their SSN + DOB at the
election registrar's website to check.

The other
problem is vote tampering. Using the same basic system the voter can
verify on the registrar's website to confirm who they voted for. When
the ballot is received the registrar scans the QR and computes
HMAC(QR+MyVote+Secret2), where Secret2 is known only to the registrar.
Do this for each political office on the ballot. The voter can then go
to the website and enter their personal info to confirm that the vote
was counted correctly.

You can strengthen the
privacy of the system by using something like two-factor authentication
where a second entity (not the registrar) counter-signs each QR with
Secret3.
This system guarantees privacy, prevents ballot duplication, and detects vote tampering. Or is it too easy?

This PD should be fired, everyone from the chief on down.
Officer Noor, in his wisdom, shot and killed Justine Damon, while she was outside of his patrol car. She was in her night clothes. She was unarmed. Officer Noor took his service weapon out, while seated in the passenger seat of his patrol car, and shot her dead, while crossing the path of the driver, who could have prevented her murder, but did not. It took NINE MONTHS to fire Officer Noor, who murdered an Australian citizen on whimsy.
Then this.

I mentioned earlier today that people in my area (the Thumb) are saying that the reason she dragged her feet on declaring a flood emergency last year for the St Clair River and Lake St. Clair area was that it's Trump Country.

Then maybe one could forge ballots for fictitious persons, fill them out, and send them in, and have them be counted.

I would inherently mistrust any voting system where authentication resides in some tedious mathematical algorithm.

Register in person to vote. Registration to be be done at precisely the same place where you intend to vote. You walk in, present I.D., and get presented with your voter ID card. Then the registrar takes a dollar bill from the cash box, tears it in half, hands one half to you, and places the other half in the envelope with the voters' list for that polling place.

You come in to vote, present your half dollar, the poll worker fishes out the matching half, and gives you it and a ballot.

Made them get out of the car once we hit the beach (which had crowds sitting on the sand or playing in the water)

We walked a half mile along the sand. The daughter took off her mask first, followed shortly by her brother. I encouraged them to collect sea shells and interesting rocks. I then tried to find a place for lunch that had "in-dining" but all those places had lines so we settled for take out from a local "Habit." Took them back to the harbor for ice-cream, they wore masks again, I did not as I know full well I was slimed by this bullshit back in Dec. 2019 and did not get flamed by it one bit cuz ER MEDICINE, SARS, H1N1

The problem is that, by offering suggestions to strengthen the security of the mail-in ballot, you are granting legitimacy to the entire idea of mail-in voting. If people can't be assed to get their fat ass to the polling place on Election Day, they should damned well lose their vote. Provision can be made for shut-ins, and troops on deployment, of course.

No more perpetual government class. No more revolving doors between politics, journalism, lobbying firms, and contractors.

Just a bunch of people who are super pissed off at being selected for service, biding time til they can get the fuck back to real life, who have never been in the FSA, won't be subject to the whims of the FSA, and can't build a power base in the FSA upon which they can inflict themselves on others.

I agree, vote in person and I would go further. Once you vote, you dip your finger in ink that can not be scrubbed off but has to wear off. If you cannot bother to show up on election day you don't vote. If you have other plans that day or have to be out of town, you don't vote.

Military voting can be in person in the field on ballots mailed to them (if the military can coordinate getting soldiers where they need them, they can also coordinate getting ballots to soldiers where ever they are and providing a space for voting).

The problem with the State Dept. isn't so much Obama holdovers but that a Harvard or Yale degree is a passport to a State Dept. job, that is, the State Dept. heavily recruits from those two universities. And because of legacy credentialism, those graduates/employees will be the diplomatic decision-making Powers That Be. Thus the Deep State is born and nourished.

You can find several do it yourself fence charger circuits online, and most of them are of this pulse type, and use automotive "high energy" ignition coils (with allowances for different types). It's basically the same as the above. Capacitor discharge into the coil, with a timing circuit to fire it at a periodic rate, usually about once per second.

542 I fail to see how (DOB+SSN+random#) will necessarily be unique for all voters. Example: suppose two voters were both born on 01/01/60. One has SSN: 566-332-123, and the other has 566-332-122. The first one draws a random number of 12345, and the second draws 12346. The sums are equal.

Hashing is more robust than that. A good hash function those two sets with a comparatively tiny difference will produce a two different seemingly random numbers.

You can get hash collisions, but it's not likely and the input data will be completely different. The strings "abc123" and "$X9#^H" might produce the same hash.

Posted by: Ace's liver at May 27, 2020 02:50 AM (wGeit)

543
The charger I got was a "15 mile" "0.9/0.7 joule" unit. And that makes me mad, but it's standard fence charger jargon. The joule rating is the energy stored and dumed per pulse (the lower figure is how much energy will be dumped into the load per pulse, which depends on some standard load resistance being defined).

And that doesn't tell you anything. What matters is how much voltage (peakish per pulse) and what kind of current pulse it's going to deliver.

But that's the standard fence charger rating system used.

These moderm low (output) impedance pulsing chargers are much better that the older higher impedance, and continuous voltage chargers.

Those of sufficient size can handle weed loads and still give a decent shock. And they are not nearly as much of a fire hazard in dry conditions. Those things have caused fires by igniting dry grass and trash when something gets to arcing to ground.

These pulse types are not as bad to do that as they can't make a continuous arc.

The other problem we've had in the last couple of decades with Statecraft is the lack of real historical knowledge with State Dept. employees. I'm not talking the pop Howard Zinn/NYTimes' '1619 Project' histories, either. The lack of knowledge of other societies, historically and culturally, is our major diplomatic downfall. Think of that tired trope from Bush II's administration, how everyone in the world wants to be free, to have democracy. Iraq and Afghanistan codifying Shari'a Law into their constitutions should have been/be a clue as to how wrong that type of thinking is.

But from where did Bush graduate? Both Yale (undergrad degree) AND Harvard (grad degree). Obama, another Harvard grad degree. Hillary Clinton, Yale. Bill Clinton, "attended the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., receiving a Bachelor of Science in Foreign Service degree in 1968."

The same schools keep popping up over and over with regard to our 'public employees', both elected and not. But our public policy failures of late, and their are many, never seem to get attached to those schools. Funny that.

At this point, I'm all for pulling down Harvard, Yale and Georgetown brick by fucking brick. Then let the State Det. recruit by lottery from the phone book. Can't be any worse than what we have now.

545 405 @NaughtyPine - don't make light of broken toes. Two summers ago, I broke my right big toe. (Pick two: bare feet, moving furniture, alcohol consumption). Since it was the big toe and I smashed it such that it was broken in 3 places, I sat on my ass all summer (teacher schedule FTW) and kept it elevated, icing every 20 minutes for a lot of that time, and if I had to go out, I wore the Boot. Healed completely before school started back up, in about 8 weeks. Then last summer, like an idiot, I smashed the baby toe on the same foot and thought, "Eh, it's the baby toe, NBD," and thought I could get by with buddy taping. After 4 weeks of me basically ignoring it, it was actually worse, and I ended up starting the school year back in the damn Boot and having to elevate it while lecturing at the front of the classroom. Always a classy look! It took nearly 12 weeks to heal because I was cavalier. (But also probably because it was broken in 3 places and slightly dislocated.)

tl;dr: Don't screw around with foot injuries. Keep it elevated, and ice around (not on) the area for 20 minutes at a time *** until it heals ***. Stay off it if you can, and if you can't, wear a boot. If it's not a bad break it should mostly heal in a few weeks and you'll be glad you treated it nice. If it's a bad break, I cannot stress this enough, WEAR THE BOOT. It sucks but it's better to just get it over with.

1 of the interesting things is his middle name was H not S but had been
entered as S on his west point application so they tole him your now S ,
Uncle Sam Grant...


Posted by: beanervt at May 27, 2020 04:03 AM (YHcGR)

I haven't watched it. I will probably check it out at some point. Most Americans know very little about Grant. Then again, you can say that about pretty much any historical figure and modern American culture.

I recall Grant was named Hiram Ulsysses Grant. I think the S comes from Simpson but need to check on that.

not at all. you brought this up and it spurred conversation. I don't know what they said but his middle initial was not H. I guess it is possible but his given first name started with H. I think you got the main issue right, the S. middle initial was a mistake.

597 He went by his middle name so the H part was not relevant at the time. I don't think he had a middle initial when he showed up at West Point. The S. came from his mother and was an error as I have said. But I don't know it they got the story wrong. I mean, it is the History Channel, so. But the key point is what you said originally.

In the warmer weather, I made iced coffee. Brew up a pot of coffee, into a glass pitcher to cool then into the fridge, with a saran wrap lid. Various flavors (flavors are best cold). Works for me.

In the colder months, I save the last bit of hot coffee in a glass, put it in the fridge, and every three or four days I get a 'free' glass of iced coffee. Waste not, want not.

It would be interesting to see what they said there. I am glad they are putting up something on Grant, it is a good start.

I like to read the few academic non fiction bios and histories of old west figures. It is interesting to see some of the mistakes they made because they did not have enough primary sources. For example, there is an early bio of Doc Holliday, which was a serious academic attempt, that got all wrong the city and state he in which he studied dentistry. It was still a good book and a great first attempt at real history. That book was Doc Holliday by John Myers Myers.

I also read a recent Louis L'amour novel where the author called him Doc Halliday. And L'amour did his research.

They say we have way better primary sources for Ancient Rome than we do of the American Old West.

it is a a good book and not much of a slog at all. I think it was the first real academic attempt at a Holliday bio. It was written in the 1950s I believe. There are some other good ones that built on it and added more detail over the decades. There are probably a bunch now but most of the key info came out by the 90s.
Tombestone, an Iliad of the Southwest is a good book to if you have not read it. It came out in the 20s and is a mix of fact and fiction. Still a good book as before it was mostly dime novels and all fiction. It is interesting to read how the history has improved over the years, at least on that subject.

Lesbian police chiefs, diversity hires, what could possibly go wrong?

I remember the days when the NYC police had to be at least 5'10" tall and were known for 'tuning up' certain types of perps, like child molesters and men who used women for punching bags, before booking them. 'What, that split lip? Hit his head on the roof as we were putting him into the backseat of the cruiser. Wouldn't comply.'

Sure, it's not legal and all that, but society was better off.
Posted by: RickZ at May 27, 2020 01:27 AM (Y8PSl)

**********************


I remember when I was 11 or 12, way far back in my 70s youth here in Northern Ireland, me and a few mates playing football in a local park. We noticed that there seemed to be a lot of police activity about the park which had a small wood in the middle of it. A policeman actually came over to ask us if we had seen anyone acting suspiciously.

We found out later that a small girl awas grabbed and dragged off towards the woods from a kids playground on the other side of the park. But she managed to escape when her friends screamed and some passers by gave chase and alerted the cops at the nearby station.

Just as he asked us his radio went off and a voice came over the airwaves to say that they had "got him" and were bringing him to the police station.

So the peelers left.
The police station was only a few hundred yards away on the opposite side of the street from the park, so we all ran across to see what the cops were on about, and just to add a bit of excitement to a boring summer day.

We got to the station just as the cops were almost dragging a crying man, obviously in a considerable amount of pain, into the station. The two cops who had spoken to us were at the gate of the station and talked to the cops bringing the culprit in.

"What happened to him?" asked one of the cops, referring to the crying man whose arm was hugging his arm tightly.
"Oh he trooped on a tree root and broke his arm running away from us," was the reply. And all the cops laughed.

So did we.

These were the old tough RUC cops who didn't fuck about, not the wimpy touchy feely clown cops we have now, whose first instinct would be to get the poor nonce a cup of tea and some counselling before letting him go.

Skip, I think Indy is still fairly "spec" as far as engines go, but each chassis builder can provide aero kits for ovals, road courses, etc.

But here's the thing: I can't imagine Ferrari racing a car that's not 100% Ferrari. However, the rules used to say that engine and chassis builders had to supply any team that wanted their product.
No matter what, the result is going to be...weird. Very weird.

658 TeeJ, Churchy is a comic strip turtle from Walt Kelly's "Pogo." The series started in the early 50's and ran until Kelly's death in '73. Well, until a little later: the family kept the strip going for a few months but it became evident it just wastn't the same.

Some of the plot lines are as lol funny as any comedy done since, I think it's fair to say. Anyhow, I've always been a fan.

That is incorrect, rainman. What it would have done, if he was not caught, was send Republican ballots to 5 Democrats in a primary election. So they never even got the ballots. No votes were changed because well duh they haven't had the primary yet.

Deaths from Spanish Flu in 1918. 50 million out of a world population of 1.6 Billion. That means 3.1% of the world population died from the disease.

(sidenote: one of the odd things about this is that no one is getting their terms uniform. We mix overall deaths in with things like mortality if you contract the disease.)

Worldwide deaths from Covid 19 350,000 out of a population of 7.65 Billion. That means .000046% of world population have died from the disease.

751 Questions of voter fraud after man finds 83 ballots shipped to a single address in his apartment complex

http://dailym.ai/3gC5VrI

--- Jerry Mosna found 83 mail-in ballots shipped to his apartment complex in San Pedro, California this weekend
--- All 83 ballots were sent to the same address where a single 89-year-old woman lives
--- The Los Angeles County Registrar's Office is investigating the incident
--- It 'appears to be an isolated situation related to a system error that caused duplicate ballots to be issued to' a single voter's address

What continues to annoy me about these headlines is the blame put on "the coronavirus pandemic".

None of that has to do with the pandemic. All of it has to do with the politicians' reaction to the pandemic.

We have had numerous pandemics in the past where life went on as normal in the country.

The only difference with this pandemic is the reaction of President Trump and Governors all over the country to freak out American citizens and strip away basic freedom and liberty for the past 11 weeks. Not to mention enact policies by executive orders that have destroyed small businesses and threw tens of millions of Americans into unemployment. Not to mention, purposely place at-risk Americans in contact with those infected with the virus which directly led to more deaths.

"The only thing we have to fear is... fear itself." It was not the virus itself, but fear of the unknown of the virus that placed us in this situation.

I never watched the news prior to 9/11/2001. I was 25 years old and realized while watching the horror play out on TV before my eyes that I was completely ignorant of the world outside of my bubble of sports, work and chasing girls.

From that day forward, I was an avid Fox News Channel watcher. Found Rush Limbaugh's show soon after.

But fast forward to the 2004 Presidential campaign and I lost all faith in TV news that year. And ironically it was not the Dan Rather CBS News effort to take down President Bush with a lie, but Bill O'Reilly going soft on John Kerry and fence-sitting on the issue of the Swift Boat Veterans.

I had liked his show, because I felt he always took a stand on something. Even if I disagreed with his stand, I liked the fact he took a stand. When I saw his wishy-washy-ness on that, it made me realize it was all shtick and he didn't really stand for anything.

It was then that blogs and military blogs became popular and I have gotten my news solely from Rush and blogs ever since. Has helped keep me sane from all the nonsense in the news.

822 That's a very disturbing pic of Biden and Doctor Jill at the wreath laying at a local cemetery. He looks very weak and unstable and Jill is directing him toward the waiting SUV.

824 "I literally never watch the TV news. Ever. And I haven't for years. It's nothing but top down orchestrated psyops. Or straight-up leftist propaganda. Don't let them in. Of course, it's online too. Just pick your news sources (like here!) and stick with it exclusively. It saves the nerves to some degree.

Same here.

Even the 5 minutes on AM radio is too much, and filled with the same poison.

Go look up Kelly Thomas. What happened in Minneapolis is a picnic by comparison to what the cops did to that poor bastard.

Looting a liquor store is, in fact, how best to demonstrate your heartfelt and sincere grief over the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of the police.

The whole situation is mind-boggling.

The entire community fails to realize that Democrat politicians control law enforcement. Basically, Democrat politicians are the slave masters and law enforcement are the people the slave masters use to keep their people in line.

Yet, they never decide to punish their slave masters for that. Instead, they take out their anger on the slave masters' thugs and then afterwards go reward their slave masters with 90% support at the polls.

Democrats have the perfect scam going on: they keep their people in line with violence and not only take none of the blame for it, but get rewarded with more power and influence.

And this has been going on for decades, thanks to the power and influence of... Black "leaders" who feed this nonsense to the community as a whole.

You'd think someone, anyone over the past 30-40 years would finally see through the BS and inspire the community to change for the better.

Remarkably, we have a conservative station here in the DC area, but the two 5 minute news breaks are almost bad enough to cancel the enitrty of the conservative thought you get in the other 45 minutes or so.

One would think. Not that I think it would've been a good thing, but rationally speaking, why weren't the rioters and protestors in Ferguson trashing the police station instead of their own neighborhoods? That would have made a lot more sense.

Well, it's not like the majority of these situations make any sense.

90% of the time the community has gone apeshit over supposed "police brutality", they've lied about the story to protect a criminal. As was the case with Mike Brown in Ferguson.

But, gotta give them and Black Lives Matter credit. Their actions have worked to convince people to support their cause. As can be seen with all the anti-cop rhetoric on this blog and specifically in the comments of this post.

Does not matter that there are likely hundreds of thousands of police districts in the country and millions of cops and 95% of the time, things are done right.

You get viral attention on a few bad situations and BOOM, all law enforcement and all police officers across the nation are bad.

839 Thinking of replying to the Karens:

"The only one who can tell me what to do is my lover. So you want to come over to my place?"

That should repel them the fastest.
