The Saturday Night Joke

The king wanted to go fishing, and he asked the royal weather forecaster the forecast for the next few hours.

The palace meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain.

So the king and the queen went fishing. On the way, he met a man with a fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the man if the fish were biting.

The fisherman said, "Your Majesty, you should return to the palace. In just a short time I expect a huge rainstorm."

The king replied: "I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him."

So, the king continued on his way.

However, in a short time, torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked.

Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to execute the meteorologist.

Then he summoned the fisherman and offered him the prestigious position of royal forecaster.

The fisherman said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain."

So, the king hired the donkey.

And so, began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in influential positions of government.

And thus, the symbol of the Democrat Party was born.

The practice continues to this day.

It's a Vox link, so you may or may not want to click onto it. The best and worst of streaming services.

The streaming wars are well and truly upon us.

And they’ve become radically more complicated in just the last year. Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon — the big fish in a small pond — are still making big moves (especially in the original programming game). The slightly younger CBS All Access is still the streaming home of CBS programming, of Star Trek, and of The Good Fight (one of TV’s best shows).

But the last seven months have heralded the arrival of AppleTV+, Disney+, and HBO Max, all pulling on their wetsuits to take a dip in a pond that seems to have less room by the day. When you consider that NBCUniversal’s Peacock is yet to arrive in earnest — it officially launches this summer — and that this census of streaming services doesn’t account for the scores of boutique options out there (to say nothing of streaming extensions of TV channels, like the Showtime and Starz apps), you begin to realize just how difficult it can be to figure out where to spend your streaming dollars.

The Saturday Overnight Open Thread. On the verge of being suave and sophisticated as the Mid-Morning Art Thread.
Do you want to give someone a memorable wedding gift? Why not take your inspiration from Renaissance art and give them a painting of a sexy weasel?

In the 16th century, weasels were a catch-all category for many of the furry, long-bodied carnivorous creatures in the mustelid family, such as ermine, sables, martens, ferrets, stoats and mink. These creatures often appear in Renaissance portraits of high-ranking noblewomen, and represent a fascinating language of sexual symbolism. Explore some of the hidden meanings of weasels below!


On the verge? No, not really. This is The ONT after all.

It must be horrible to go through life being a frustrated fucking bitch. Meet "Karen" Martine Shanchuk, a 40-year-old Sandy Hook resident.

After Shanchuk (pictured at right) confronted the man, he did not reverse course in the aisle. Shanchuk, cops charge, then “just stopped in the aisle to prevent him from continuing down the aisle in the wrong direction.”

Shanchuk “continued to yell” at the man, who was “not listening to her,” police report. She then “removed her face mask and spit in the male's face."

Cops responded to the market after the victim dialed 911 to say that “while shopping at Big Y, he got into an argument with a female shopper about going the wrong way down an aisle and that during the argument, the female spit in his face.”

Arrested for breach of peace, Shanchuk is free in advance of a July 17 court hearing

It does take all kinds to make the world go round. Doesn't it?

A man with a flip-flop fetish has been arrested after being found with more than 100 stolen pairs of them in his possession.

Theerapat Klaiya, 24, stole the footwear from homes in his neighbourhood, and later apparently had sex with each of them after several hours of wearing them.

The 24-year-old was arrested after police received dozens of complaints from confused residents saying their flip-flops had gone missing in Nonthaburi, central Thailand.

The Ace of Spades HQ, a smart military blog and The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM team up to help your odds in a grenade explosion.

Grenades are diabolical little devices that go back as far as the 8th-century when soldiers from the Byzantine Empire began putting incendiary compounds in small stone or ceramic jars and hurling them at their enemies. Today’s grenades aren’t a whole lot more elegant.

There are a few kinds of grenades, with time-delayed fragmentation grenades being the most common in modern armies. Frag grenades are made of steel or some super-hard synthetic, and filled with explosive material. When you pull the detonation pin and release the handle, it triggers the fuse to ignite the charge.

Despite their explosive power, it isn’t the explosion itself that’s harmful. It’s the shrapnel. When a grenade blows up, the steel body disintegrates into a multitude of tiny pieces. Those fragments hurtle through the air in all directions, like a shotgun blast. The bumpy texture on the outside of many grenades (hence the nickname “pineapple” helps them erupt into more effective shrapnel. If one of those pieces catches you wrong, it can be deadly.

Once upon a time.........Safe sex has taken on a new meaning.

Switzerland’s sex workers have released a few guidelines for banging during the Wuhan virus outbreak. The guidelines even highlight preferred sex positions while renting some love.

Swiss sex workers have drawn up a list of rules which they say minimises the risk of transmitting coronavirus in brothels, in hopes that the country’s ban on the industry could soon be lifted.

Logan Township police say a mother and son have been cited for fighting following a physical altercation that occurred on Memorial Day, according to a news release.

Police say officers were dispatched to a home along the 600 block of Avalon Road in Altoona, just after 9:30 p.m. Monday, after receiving reports of a domestic dispute.

Upon further investigation, officers say the incident began when the 41-year-old mother got into an argument with her 20-year-old son, and his girlfriend, and disconnected the WIFI service.

Police say in response, the son disconnected the power to the entire house, which led to the altercation becoming physical.

A new wave pick from MisHum's music collection tonight! Good taste dude.

MisHum, are you (or anyone else here) familiar with Dorsey Burnette by any chance? He appears to have been one of the few country artists ever signed to Motown in the 1960s (!). An FB friend just sent me a YouTube link to one of his releases, "Cold As Usual." (If you listen to the song, you realize the title is kind of a joke.)

The first business smashed was a jewelry store which I know for a fact to be more than a block from the rally site, so someone went looking for it. Removed all my valuables from the locked-down office just in case, and now I'm glad I did ... Thank goodness for a nice relaxing ONT.

If it turns violent, I'd be interested to see how it's covered (and described by Whitmer), since the bar has been set already with the April 15th rally (we were called Nazi terrorists because some people honked their horns RULLY RULLY loud).

88 Per the movie thread:

The MPAA has always been bribed. They show preference on movies by certain producers EG Harvey Weinstein the same as the Oscars do.

Banning smoking seems like mission creep and busybody nonsense that should be pushed back on, otherwise you will get more of it in other categories. I want James Bond to smoke like a chimney. "You will make smoking look cool..." Bond makes assassination look cool and yet here we are.

The MPAA gave the South Park guys a hard time on Team America. X rating for stuff puppets do tells me that this is a racket. Of course for every time Parker and Stone took an edit they would find a non-graphic way to make the movie more profane and uncomfortable.

First thing tomorrow I'll start draining fluids out of the old engine and get the new one on the stand so I can put the new timing belt on it before dropping it in place. Eldest Son will be coming by to help swap the engines out. If we can get the new one bolted into place I can finish it up next week and finally get that beast back on the road.

The violence in Minneapolis is the fault of white supremacists.

This - of course - is Donald Trump's fault for some reason.

Utter chaos is an understatement. And he said it's likely going to get worse. As this stuff went on well into the early morning last night. He's on second shift and thankfully does not have to deal with the stuff going on right now.

https://bit.ly/2XOHuOY

I listened in for about 20-30 minutes and was overwhelmed. Rioting and looting stores and arson everywhere, attacking city hall, setting cars on fire, CTA and Rapid Transit Trains shut down inside the Loop (downtown Chicago).

Overwhelming.

Well, you may be right, but you gotta sort out what you mean by "bad stuff." Looting is, anecdotally, mostly locals, mostly opportunistic, so you'd expect it to be dominated by the unorganized. Throwing Molotov cocktails is a whole different order of bad. If it turned out that most of the people doing that were white, that would certainly be interesting. Don't know if that's the case, though.

Now in Seattle, the violent rioters have moved on to other blocks, and now looting in the downtown business district is underway and growing.

The local KOMO/ABC reporter says he cannot see a single cop anywhere.

A looter just stood by him and took a selfie while he was reporting.

Many stores, GAP, Doc Martin's, many others are actively being looted right now.

Why do so many looters steal mannequins out of the stores? Because they are. I can understand stealing clothing, electronics, but mannequins?

171 Well, as much as I don't think honorable blood should be spilled to save stupid communists from the governments they have themselves, this has to end. Declare the states with riots that extend beyond three consecutive days to be in a state of rebellion and send the army. A-10s and Apaches lighting up the center of the riot will end it immediately, with massive collateral damage.

They had the chance to contain this. You have a choice: numerical supremacy, cracked heads and paddy wagons all meted out aggressively, or body count.

They've lost control. The supremacy angle is lost.

There are no cops around the downtown Nordstrom's.

Their flagship store, which was completely rebuilt from the inside out about 3 or 4 years ago, for many millions.

So far, the rioters are walking by.

I am just so thankful that my mom got out of there 4 years ago. Retired to Arizona. 4 years ago this past week, ironically enough.

We grew up on the south side of Chicago about 7 blocks from Midway Airport. Was a nice quiet Polish neighborhood in the 1980s and early 1990s. When I went off to college in late 1990s, I came home to them having built the Orange Line RTA connecting Midway Airport to downtown Chicago. Entire area has been in a free fall ever since. Now my old neighborhood is Mexican and gang-infested. It's basically like comparing the Back to the Future 1955 to the new Biff Tannen alternate timeline 1955. Completely unrecognizable.

And thank you, Rosa. I know there is valid anger among a lot of people about police officers. But please know they are not all bad. Most are average people just trying to do their job. My little brother is definitely one of them. And they need our prayers.

I buy that as a premise for some of the locals. Not for the coordinated, widespread rioting. This is an op. Riots in MPLS with maybe a sympathy riot in New Orleans or Chicago, I could write that off as typical riotous madness.

This is something else. It's widespread and coordinated and it reeks of communist street warfare wearing the "racism" skin suit. If we had an FBI that did something other than try to execute coups and actively arm islamic terrorists, I suspect this wouldn't have happened. Who and what Antifa (and its various sisters) are has been known for some time. It should have been destroyed long ago.

Why do we have cops, exactly? And governors? And mayors? What purpose are they serving if they won't keep the peace. Sometimes it's "can't" but in many places - Minnesota chief among them at the moment - it's "won't." Or, it's "wouldn't" but now it's too late.

"Won't" becomes "can't" very quickly.

272 Cities that have rioting never recover. Business knows that they just
can't afford to have their property burned. That's why so many cities
are food and shopping deserts. Downtown has survived in the biggest
cities, but that will end.


Between the virus lockdowns showing how many people can work from home and these riots, I wouldn't invest in any metro area large office buildings for a while.

Actually an excellent question.

IMO it was both, the Vietnam protests were increasingly violent, the RFK assassination (and MLK and other assassinations) were just other examples of out of control lawlessness and hopelessness of the times. After 2 months the DNC convention happened in Chicago that just reinforced the lawlessness.

315 Report from Flyover Capital, NE Oklahoma, Smallville

Got out to the not-Aldi grocery store today. Just as with Aldi last night, crew was wearing masks (badly) but we saw no customers masked, until right as we were leaving I saw a couple of... odd-looking gents, masked. Probably for the best that they were. !

I really kind-of let loose as we came in. Pointing to every "in this together" and "stand far apart" sign and sticker, I said, not real loudly, "I hate that. And I hate that. And..." But smiling and waving at people.

One aisle didn't have arrows on the floor. I stood there helplessly crying out, "Won't someone tell me which way I'm supposed to go?"

Waiting at checkout, I walked off the short distance between the "stay this far apart" stickers. I said to the couple in line behind us, "I don't think these rows are six feet apart!" AND THE LADY BEHIND ME SAID: "GOOD THING THE VIRUS DOESN'T TRAVEL SIDEWAYS!" She beat me to it!

353 "Did the riots and/or Vietnam bring Nixon a win, or did RFK's death?"

Let's not forget the effect of George Wallace's third party candidacy, which got 9.9 million popular votes and 46 electoral votes from 5 Southern states (LA, AR, MS, AL, GA). The "Solid South" was still Dem or Dem-leaning at the time so I would guess those votes were probably diverted more from Humphrey than from Nixon. I kinda suspect he would have done just as well against RFK, assuming that there were still plenty of Southern Democrats at the time who had a grudge against JFK and RFK for forcing them to desegregate.

Posted by: Jewells45 at May 30, 2020 10:39 PM (dUJdY)


Still going on. I saw there was some tear gas earlier tonight. I don't think they've burned any police cars--that seems to be the signature move for the A-list Antifa-freaks hitting other cities.

All day today the stores on the Plaza were all boarding up their windows. I guess they're all closed until Monday.

(The Country Club Plaza is the ritzy up-scale shopping and restaurant area in KCMO, for those who don't know).

Oops, late update from Fox4 News . . . National Guard is rolling into town, more smoke (tear gas?) canisters being shot into the Plaza area. Doesn't seem to be nearly as freaky as in other big cities though. So far.

Then you tell me.

We just spent months under an undeclared martial law over a viral scare that was no stronger than a flu. The martial law was imposed by force of arms on behalf of various state and local governments - while encouraged by some federal agencies.

Now we have riots - conducted under the protection of the same state and local governments - and we sit here cheering because now we may really get a federally enforced martial law.

At some point - some of you may want to consider that "they" are playing a completely different game: With different goals. And instead of looking down your noses at their distasteful gutter tactics - take a peek at who is dictating to who.

The Space Shuttle Orbiters had the capability to be programmed to auto-land. Adequate sensors were already built-into the Orbiter and installed on the planned Shuttle landing runways. All that was needed was to program the software to close-the-loop. The Astronaut Office refused to allow auto-land be implemented, even as a back-up in case of the pilots getting sick or somehow being disabled in flight.

The pilot-rated Shuttle Orbiter astronauts had their pride and they were not going to simply be along for the ride for landing, as they had to be for launch (events, and especially problems, happen too fast for human recognition and proper reaction during the launch and ascent phases).

Yep. This isn't about George Floyd or dirty cops. This is about showing the country that OrangeManBad has either fomented this violence or is powerless to stop it.

It's an ongoing string of crises that is meant to solely undermine peoples faith in our institutions - and specifically the man at the head of them.

I cannot understate just how bad this is for a president to be presiding over the precipice of what appears to be a race war. Even if he's done nothing to contribute to it. The media will excoriate him because HE caused it by saying the Charlottesville white supremacists were "good people". (Even though we all know he didn't say that).

While you all might enjoy seeing "blue" cities burn, just realize that the non-educated voter sitting in front of CNN or Fox or NBC is going to hold one person accountable for it come November - and it ain't their local mayor.

Put riot control in the hands of the U.S. Marshal Service. They are woefully undermanned for this? Well, let them deputize people on line. Any adult of good character, who possesses a Concealed Carry permit, or veterans, can sign up on line, and as long as they have a reference from a judge, congressperson, sheriff, etc., they get a badge number by e-mail, and a printable commission. And all Marshals and deputies will have full legal immunity for shooting down rioters in the street. If the Riot Act has been read, or a state of insurrection declared, it's a free-fire zone for Marshals.

An autopsy by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner "revealed no physical findings that support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation," the complaint states.

"Mr. Floyd had underlying health conditions including coronary artery disease and hypertensive heart disease," the report states. "The combined effects of Mr. Floyd being restrained by the police, his underlying health conditions and any potential intoxicants in his system likely contributed to his death."


Sounds like a stress related heart attack to me. Doubt related to minimal pressure on side of neck, which, more likely than not, is what was being applied by the officer.

Breitbart is reporting that rioters have set fire to Nashville city hall.

And that U.S. military troops were spotted heading into Washington D.C. a few hours ago.

587 Reporter who was out on the street for Fox4 KC said that the mood changed as the crowd started getting younger as the night went on . . . it got rowdier and more violent and the reporter and her cameraman decided to get the hell out and come back to the studio.

Still not seeing the really bad shit going on elsewhere. But of course there's still plenty of time for that, isn't there?

Depends. And then we'll see just how well those who are pulling the strings understand the game.

If they hit the trailer parks, the working poor, and the pissed off portions of the middle class - this all ends with the police trying to make enough arrests to save face while they haul off the bodies.

If, however, the mob hits the affluent suburbs that largely support the mob - then the police will get sporty. Which will spur the affluent to support the mob even more - while also begging for more police to keep those who would put down the mob in check.

I thought that too, but then I read up on the actual charge, Third Degree Murder. Doesn't require intent. But it does require that the killing happens in the process of committing another felony (many exceptions about what felony that can be). Not sure how the DA sorts that one out. I suspect he's throwing that over the wall to redirect the heat to somewhere else.

Gov did piecemeal call ups day by day; first, 200; then, 500; yesterday, finally, he called up the entire state. They're still focused on main riot points, but I like to think that frees up the MPD for local enforcement.

I'm literally smack dab in the middle of one the most looted parts of the city. We haven't seen diddly-squat in terms of proactive or reactive police presence.

692 It's comforting, living amongst heavily armed neighbors with surly attitudes towards rioters, looters and their ilk.

Only two entrances through the fenced perimeter. Won't take too much to block them off, and they're in the direct view of brick & block landscaping features, at 40 yards range.

Those brick n' block features are about 20" thick, and provide cover for all but .308 AP and above.

We're not going to wait for the cops to help hold things down, if needed.

And not that it matters, but I'll be the only white man in the mix. My heavily armed and attitude-laden neighbors are a virtual U.N. of hues.

But this riot thing is shit with which we shall not put.

Minneapolis is a "weak mayor" system where the city council holds more power. Jacob Frey is likely toast in two years come reelection. Easier for the state party to toss him overboard for another cookie cutter candidate.

In 2018, two long standing business centric councilmen were "surprisingly" voted out in favor of young, transgender candidates. Yes, really.

771 @713: "I haven't looked for any WH announcement (but the WH website is pathetically bad for anything like actual news), but Trump tweeted that NG is unleashed ("released to do the job" they should have already been doing)."

My read is that Gov Walz finally mobilized the full force of the state guard only after Trump threatened to bring in federal military like Clinton did during the '92 LA riots.

MN pols tried doing the lame, superficial "look we're doing something without really doing something" call ups for two days, and good parts of town got ransacked like no one was watching.

Maybe tonight and tomorrow will be better, but I'm not convinced. Looting around here really seems to pick up in random places around 2am. It's strategic, quick, small target looting that's over before police can respond, when and if they respond, but last two nights, they were told not to respond.

It'll be interesting to see if that pans out, because if that IS true, then that truly does escalate this to a Murder 1 charge. As it is, I see Manslaughter of some level as the appropriate charge based on what we saw.

Max 25 years here for the third degree charge.

Cop worked bar security for sixteen years, so by that time, he was likely the sketchy, mobbed up asshole sipping drinks behind the bar, looking over the rest of security staff like he was a prince.

Victim was an outside door bouncer for a year and a half.

Owner insists they likely didn't know each other.

I say, victim likely didn't know the cop, but the cop sure as hell knew the victim, and the only question is whether or not the cop recognized the victim during arrest, and if so, then fuck him based on his long record of misconduct and excessive force.

I toured Temple when I was deciding on which colleges to go to. My parents went there. During the tour, they pointed out their extremely numerous (even as compared to other campuses I toured) blue police call posts and mentioned that if you're being pursued, just hit them as you run.

Then the corona lockdown but Trump has a plan . See how he turned it on the governors? But the lockdown continues. Now we have three days of riots and cities being burned but be patient Trump has a plan.

The XL size mask also doubles as a loot-bag. Just pull the ear loops drawstrings tight, and you can easily stuff in a dozen pair of Nikes!

I actually find this all quite humorous, save for some good people that are suffering because of it.

It's like that friend that swears to you that pit bulls are a gentle breed getting mauled by their dog when they try to take the food dish away.

People created this society of moral relativists, they funded liberal colleges and schools, they fed and propagated non-contributing underclasses, they imported ethnic groups with no sense of American history or any cultural connection to the country, and then they pretend to be shocked when the obvious repercussions which are easily foreseeable and were, in fact, promoted come home to roost.

Yes, really. I saw it first hand, from a few years away, as a flash mob ransacked our fully stocked Apple Stock. Most of the car had no license plates, or had doctored their plates with Sharpies to change 3s into 8s and such.

Worse, cars without plates don't travel alone, but in groups of two or three cars. I guess that makes things easier when you've gotta flee a scene.

1017 > There are no "peaceful protesters" in a riot zone.

Yes. Once a state of insurrection has been declared they become, in effect, enemy combatants.

You don't need to arrest them. You don't need to "give them a fair trial". You don't need to give them shit.

And unless they're wearing uniforms or insignia, they're UNLAWFUL combatants, and thus may be shot on the spot under the laws of war. I don't think a pair of "skinny jeans" qualifies there.

If they ARE wearing a uniform, they have to be given POW status, which still doesn't mean they get lawyers or trials (indeed, it is forbidden to put POWs on trial).

After hostilities are over, those who are U.S. citizens could then be charged with treason.

1037 @1017: "There are no 'peaceful protesters' in a riot zone."

I've been inside of some mildly violent political protests, and know the kinds of people who show up for those events, so I'm willing to cut them some slack.

But, in the spirit of social distancing, I'll say that if you stand within six feet of someone throwing a brick at the police, or someone who smashes a storefront window and goes inside to loot, then you cease being a "peaceful protester", and you become, in fact, a rioter and looter, even if you yourself don't do any real damage.

So you're finally finding out what a piece of shit Bush and the GOP-e has been for 30 years, because that is on their heads. Now it least it's finally out in the open - the GOP-e that we thought was "on our side", was playing for the other team the whole time. EVERYONE in our Government was against us, and against Trump, who represented us. The people who pretended to be on "our side" like McCain and Romney and the rest were even bigger pieces of shit than the Democrats.

so really, aren't you absolutely amazed that Trump has accomplished as much as he has? The House is corrupt, the Senate is corrupt, the Bureaucracy is corrupt, the FBI is corrupt, the DOJ is corrupt, the CIA is corrupt, most State Governments are corrupt, Courts are corrupt from top to bottom, the Media is corrupt, all of Academia is corrupt - how is it possible that Trump is still standing?

1102 Well, I can report that everything is peaceful and quiet in my AO. I spent 7 hours out in the sun and wind stripping parts off an old car. It got hot and thirsty out, so a couple of beers were consumed. Got what I needed from it, and picked it up with the tractor and trundled it back to its resting place.

Went to town, and bought some groceries, and then took the whiskey road up to the next town, where the hotel bar is open, and had two beers out back in the beer garden in the sunshine, with two tables full of friendly people. No masks or social distancing in evidence. Then I drove home by way of one of the other gravel grid roads. Trees and hedges are greening up real nicely, too. It was a pleasant trip, all but a mile or two on the gravel, in the old Chevy pickup, which runs as sweet as the day it was new.

1123 There are basically two camps, out of those who hold an opinion. Those who look at riots and A) cheer it on as justice, or B) condemn it as evil brutality.


Everyone who is in camp A was already against Trump from the beginning. Those are not votes lost, those are votes that were never in play. And the longer the violence and destruction goes unanswered, the more and more undecideds that are going to slip into sympathizing with camp B. They're not going to slip into camp A unless they've been indoctrinated to believe A well before this.

1190 So far, Houston seems to be holding tight.

To the degree, that ABC 13 is airing reruns of a stupid reality show. Other channels have SNL and other crap on.

No live "On Air" of Houston streets or stresses.

I despise the Houston mayor, but he and the HPD Chief, although a gun grabbing California Highway Patrol import.. both have managed this (so far) with just the right, deft touch, so as to tamp down the passions on the Left.

I do not AGREE with statements they've made. But the seem so far, as to co-opted the drive on the left to incorporate it into the "Peaceful Protest" side of the equation.

To be sure, there are MANY ready to rumble Antifa activists in the streets.

But HPD has done TEXTBOOK work with tactics to surround them, isolate them, freeze them and funnel them into non volatile areas.

If Houston and HPD can weather this storm intact, it will re-write many a textbook. A good service for our side.

But the pity is, the assholes will study it too, and know how to breach it at the next opportunity.

You need a warrant for that. Also, you don't get association by default. Also, the contact tracing stuff uses Near Field data, which has a much finer resolution than cell tower data.

The "contact tracing" bullshit requires that you have granted consent to make your location a matter of public record. That opens up the possibility for large-scale data mining.

"Oh, you say you don't know Antifa Thug X? Then why was your phone within three feet of him when he was caught on camera torching this store? And why does the camera only show one other person within three feet of him?"

Like I said, this is a whole different level from mapping tower pings.

1215 Let me give you, what I hope, is some solid (normal) news. My son is a college baseball player. In our part of the state, we have what is called a "semi-pro" baseball league (when i first moved here, even Mitch Williams (post-retirement) was paid to pitch a few innings in this league). In reality, it is "town-baseball". Something like an adult softball league, but baseball. But, with minor league baseball shut down, "semi-pro" is the only game in town. Today, there was no less than three local tv stations at the games today. Something unheard of in this league.

In the stands, not any social distancing to be had. If MLB doesn't get their sh*t together, I wouldn't be surprised if ESPN is at this league's next tournament. Anyhoo, for once in three months, it was nice to feel "normal" again.

That is pretty old. NextGen 911 services work a different way. When you make a call to a 911 center, the first location that shows up is the nearest cellphone tower. Your phone then transmits GPS coordinates and the Phase 2 data from the ALI provides that information.

I can tell what lane of the street you are on with that.

HPD has been in the NOT FUCKING AROUND mode for at least 48 hours. And it shows.

Very strong Department of Public Safety deployment here, too.

That may help with elevation - as in what floor is someone on. But I know of many tales of where the ALI data provided automagically to 911 call centers provided pin-point location data. One happened during a blizzard, the driver slid off a mountain road and was in a place no one could see them. It was only because of the precise GPS location data that the vic was found and rescued.

Alright, hope it's worth it. Because you trade off the quality of life for a buck. In the meantime enjoy the high taxes, the crime, the shit government, and the closed schools, parks, wear your masks, closed churches, and no you can't own a gun cities.

Funny you should say that, because my husband was reading online about some massive and unprecedented military exercises going on with the US and several other countries, and now he's wondering if it's a sign that WWIII could be just around the corner....

I should mention also that ever since the WuFlu pandemic started, he's gone from being generally indifferent about the daily news and politics -- he hasn't voted in over 20 years - to a full on red pilled Trump supporter, and absolutely appalled by the actions of the media and the Dems. He's even conducting a sort of one-man war against Planned Parenthood on his (under an alias) Facebook page! (I hesitate to do so because I use Facebook primarily for my business and don't want to alienate potential customers) He would never have voted for Trump 4 years ago but both of us are in the "we'll crawl over broken glass to get to the polls for him" camp this year, and we can't be the only ones...

1270 @My Pimp, 2 nights ago I recommended reading "The Minimanual of the Urban Guerrilla" from that timeframe. I lived through all that and studied this stuff pretty deeply to G-2 these guys back then. 2 nights ago, when it was still pretty much just Minneapolis, I recognized what was going on. The tipoff to me was that the assault on the police station culminated in the gas pipes being broken inside to fill the police station with gas. That's a professional, or at least a well-trained amateur, at work there.

I take no pleasure in saying this is going to get a lot, lot worse. Bombings and assassinations are in our future. Given that BLM is a solid part of the coalition, the next target will be ICE and CBP, abetted and encouraged by prominent Democrats and many in the media, to try to bring folks from south of the border in as fellow travelers.

1309 @Tom Servo, I really hope you're right, but I don't think so. This has been planned for a long time. The strategy goes back to the Russian Revolution, and in many ways this is a lot like it.

They've been preparing the ground for at least 10 years, starting with the Iraq War protests. They have a Utopian vision of a post-capitalist society with free stuff for everyone powered by solar panels and windmills where people don't eat meat. They believe that human survival depends on it. As with any movement, some are more committed than others, but the "revolutionary vanguard" is really fanatic.

It took the Bolsheviks from 1905 to 1917 to take power, and even in 1917 they were no more than 5 percent of the Russian people. But they assembled a coalition of fellow travelers to overthrow the Tsar, then after the Tsar was gone set about eliminating them from power.

The purpose of this campaign is to demonstrate that the government can't protect its officials and the bourgeoisie. We are in for a fight for the rest of the year, because they have target lists and means to execute their plans.

It was Bush the Elder that sent in federal troops during the LA Riots. The Insurrection Act was used, but the provision about a request from the governor of the state. Pete Wilson requested federal troops.

Invocation of the Insurrection Act is required to override Posse Comitatus and allow federal troops to enforce law domestically.

I think these loathsome Dem governors don't won't to ask Trump for help, 'cause Orange Man Bad.

Another section of the Insurrection Act allows POTUS to go in with federal troops without a request for help, basically if the situation is bad, and state and local officials are unable or unwilling to act.

Trump may have to invoke that. It was last used by Ike (and JFK later) during the desegregation mess.

1351 @rhomboid, the point of a guerrilla campaign is to demonstrate that the government can't protect the populace, to tear away loyalty and legitimacy. These folks are playing a different game than the front groups, the Democratic Party now being the biggest front group and Joe Biden the weak figurehead. They want a Trump crackdown, the more indiscriminate, the better. They want to put the Obama coalition back together for Biden, but even if he loses, for AOC or some other like her in 2024.

When over 200K people were evacuated during the 2007 wildfires (which nearly came close to being one of the greatest catastrophes, and largest financial casualty event, in US history - but the weather changed), there were something like 3 crimes reported in all the evacuated areas.

If Trump manages to finally get DHS working. Probably worst failure of first term, substantively speaking, certainly worst failure on a key agenda item.

And outside tiny numbers of s**tholes, even a dramatic and kinetic altercation involving those agencies would be quite popular (if quietly). Mass illegal migration is a 75/25 or 80/20 issue, overall.

1390 The protest in SD was actually a protest, and mostly about another incident, and also part of a years-long series of protests about (coincidentally, not kidding) choke-hold techniques for police. And it was mostly lawful until early in the evening - objects thrown, most of participants left, police got serious with gas etc.

There was only one dubious thing prior to that, some marchers blocked an interstate for a while, but even that was a rogue thing. Local TV reporter said whole mood changed when objects started flying, and most original marchers took off. So, again, a fairly typical pattern of "regular" protesters and trouble-makers.

Shit, 30 years ago, me and the Wife were a dual Navy Couple.

I was going on deployment, and she wanted some self defense lessons.

6 months of lessons. I come home and she is all froggy. Hitting my arm, feeling all confident.

So, OK, spar, backyard, lets go. So 220 Lb 6 Ft Male who has been training for 10 years, faces off against a 130 lbs Woman, who has trained for 10 minutes.

I may have killed my marriage because as I was throwing her around the backyard, she got mad, and I started laughing.

and while #Failifornia is a community property state, you have to either be married or have a domestic partnership agreement for it to come into play. the state does not recognize "common law" marriages, unless you achieved that status in another state before coming here, then breaking up.

The first "flip phone" design came out in 1989, believe or not, the first one that bears any resemblance to what we think of it. But it was a novelty. 1996 is apparently when they started hitting en masse.

Pretty much the only brush with 70s stuff I had was my grandpa had a lot of Leisure Suits (actually I think Grandma kept an eye on trends, because he also picked up a Member's Only Jacket in the 80s.) Polyester was kind of inescapable though.

I despise smart phones and will never have one. I don't think too much of cell phones in general, and come to think of it, have never been to big on phones in general. Always somebody wanting something calling me. As a kid, a phone call meant oft times I was going have to do or go somewhere I didn't want to go.

I've been an enthusiastic computer nut and other electronic nut, but I didn't like smart phones when they came out. And I hated social media as well. Wanted no part of that.

I can't claim I foresaw what they would turn into, but I had an instinctive dislike of them.

I can see the advantages of smart phone. They do have some uses, but a laptop does most of the actual important stuff better (just as a PC does things better than a laptop.) I think smart phones are a few rungs too far down the tree, really.

Really, smart phones are so pervasive because of texting, facebook and all that jazz.

Sorry, this is me ranting. I have had to fire one whole hell of a lot of people in the past three and a half years. In the prior 7, in management, I fired 3. Uno. Dos. Tres. At this point, I have no idea how many I have walked out for one reason or another, but the only ones that GALL THE FUCK OUT OF ME are the ones for cell phones. Every plant we are in has a zero tolerance policy in place, and I should probably just follow it instead of giving people one warning, but it always seems like such a stupid reason to fire someone. Put your fucking phone away. She will suck your dick harder if you are not so fucking clingy!

The very last band I played with were dudes younger than me. It used to be when you were at rehearsal you stayed focused. When you took a break it was just to take a break from the playing. Drummers would rest their arms, singers rested vocal chords, etc, but the guitar players had it easy. Generally we just go low volume and noodle around with ideas. A few tunes that ended up on the first album happened that way. Fast forward to this recent band, and the very first time I played with this band at a rehearsal the other guitar player figured it was time to take a break. I figured ok, first time with the band, I'll take the guitar off and hit standby on the amp, and see what the guitar player wants to talk about, etc. I turn around to hit the switch on the amp, put the guitar in the stand, and when I turn back around to face the band every...fucking...last...one...of...them were staring at their cell phones and not saying a word. in the 20 seconds it took me to hit the amp and shed the guitar they were already engrossed in their phones. It wasn't a break from playing, but a frigging break from the entire situation. I was gobsmacked. That one didn't last, they were clueless.

I drove south on Broad, past the Wells Fargo Center, and noticed that the parking lot there was about 3/4 full. i found that to be strange, given that the arena has been shut down for 3 months now. Putting on my tinfoil hat, once I returned to that area I did a cursory drive around the perimeter, and noticed that many of the cars in the lot, over half, had out-of-state tags. The gates to the lot were closed, and I didn't see any foot traffic in the area. Do you have any idea what was going on there?

I'm pondering just why these kids don't know how to do anything. With the boys, part of it is what used to be called "broken homes". No father around to show and teach them how to do shit. But it goes farther than that.

You've got kids in intact homes who aren't being taught how to do anything. The fathers apparently just don't do any of the shit that men used to do all the time.

Miley tells me I'm not normal (heh, and she's right in the general sense), and that I know how to do a lot of things more than normal. It's being raised on a farm -- you have to do a little bit of everything. I had made some comment about how anyone should be able to do something and ought to be shot if they didn't, and she pointed that out.
