Tonight's ONT Has GTT

Resist!



Some of y'all may remember that last week I asked for recommendations on where to move. More on that later, but I have to say that one of the places we considered was Idaho.

Lefties are so horrified by this, and all I see is something wonderful. A community coming together to stand against domestic terrorists. Word is that a few vans full of Antifa DID show up, but they turned around at the city line and left. That's just a rumor, no confirmation.

The Center Can Not Hold


Ace mentioned this earlier this week, but I think this story need more attention. Here are a couple of articles:


Questions raised over hydroxychloroquine study which caused WHO to halt trials for Covid-19


Unreliable data: how doubt snowballed over Covid-19 drug research that swept the world


I'm actually kind of flabbergasted, and I'm hard to flabbergast. I'm a conservative, I believe government is corrupt, by it's very nature it can't help but be corrupt, and incompetent too. That's why I think that it should be sharply and ruthlessly limited in its scope and power. You're never going to get enough good people, making good laws, with wholesome intent. Won't happen. Can't, where human beings are involved. The solution is to contain the evil they can do by limiting the range of what they have the power to do. Put it this way: Suppose I tell you that you are going to get hit with a baseball bat. It's going to happen, there is no way to avoid it. The only choice you have is whether you'll be hit by a 5 year old with a whiffle bat, or a MLB .400 hitter with an aluminum bat. Which would you chose?

But this...this is conspiracy theory level stuff. A company, coming out of nowhere, supplying (most likely) false data, and nobody questions it, in fact, governments across the world base policy on it? Without questioning? That's beyond incompetent, it's bordering on malevolent. And why? Who was behind the whole thing? Either the people behind the company were running a grift that got way out of hand, or it was actually done with malevolent intent. And how far is that from Illuminati level paranoia? Stupefying.

Musical Interlude

Someone last week said that I should get Mis Hum to teach me how to add music to the ONT. I can handle it on my own, TYVM. Enjoy:


Self Defense

Guns are flying off the shelves in records numbers (gee, I wonder why?). But what gun should first timers buy?

Gunfight Science: Do Shotguns Suck for Self-Defense?

Guy is not a fan. I think they're OK, but I'd probably rather have an AR-15 type rifle.

Tip For Our Antifa Friends

Black Lies Matter

I'm seeing some pushback against the fundamental justification for the movement. Here's an article, a thread and a video:


The Truth About Police Violence and Race




What's really amazing to me is that when you dig into the numbers behind the rhetoric, you find out that, judging by facts alone, how very successful the US is at NOT being a racist country. Yet it's "common knowledge" that we have a huge problem with racism in this country. People aren't uneducated about it, they're intentionally miseducated. The media works 24/7, 365 to perpetrate the lie, and the powers that be do everything in their power to obscure the truth. Day after day after day. And if anyone dares challenge the narrative with facts, well, they must be destroyed.

Cruisin'


G.T.T.


So, I talked last week about moving, and I want y'all to know that tonight I put in an offer on a house in Tyler, Texas. I don't know if it will be accepted or not, but we're hopeful. We really liked the listing, loved the virtual tour we took (we walked the sellers agent all over the place for about an hour with FaceTime), and tomorrow our agent is going to take a look for herself. Hopefully she won't spot something we missed (if she does we can withdraw the offer, no harm no foul, w/in 10 days). It's always risky buying something from afar, but have high hopes, please wish us luck and say a little prayer that we get it if everything is as it appears.

That being said, tell me about Tyler. Seems nice, but I've never been there. Any Morons down there? Anyone have contacts? I'll be leaving my hometown of 50 years, it's kind of scary. I'll have to rebuild all the the networks I've accumulated over a lifetime in a new place. Help me out.

I heard from my youngest son for the first time since my life went pear shaped back in November : wife kicking me out of the house, attempted suicide, and the whole cancer thing.

I miss my boys terribly, and this was a gift from heaven.

Hopefully I hear from my oldest sooner or later, but for now I'll take this as a victory.

43 I'm actually kind of flabbergasted, and I'm hard to flabbergast. I'm a conservative, I believe government is corrupt, by it's very nature it can't help but be corrupt, and incompetent too.

It appears that few hold that view.

The WHO and CDC, both government organizations, made recommendations that were all over the board, but are used by pretty much everyone to justify all of the evil that has descended upon us.

Asking a government agency about disease is the same as FedEx or UPS asking the USPS on how to run a delivery service.

If a physician gives an unfavorable diagnosis, isn't it sort of customary to seek a second or even a third opinion?

So why is there this blind and absolute trust and faith in a government agency?

Because OrangeManBad, and hydroxychloroquine is associated with the Orange Man.

Hydroxychloroquine Will Kill You, despite the fact that it has been safely taken by millions of people for decades.

One thing that the pandemic/riots are doing is destroying the reputation of "experts".

Two weeks ago, the "experts" said you that were a murderer if you arranged a barbecue with a few families. Now, the "experts" are telling us that demonstrations with thousands of people practicing no social distancing are A-OK, so long as it is for a Leftist political cause. Tear gassing and arresting demonstrators is forbidden, of course, since that will spread the virus.

67 Evening.

Would it be rude to ask a white woman who kvetches about White privilege if she's ever been fucked by a black guy and if not doesn't that make her a racist for not being inclusive?

We all know that argument is going to be made sooner or later. It'll be like, "White privilege is white women denying black bodies the pleasure of sexual Congress and denying the fulfillment of the the total black experience" or some fucking horseshit. Similar to how the trannies tried pressuring lesbian women into fucking dudes in cheap wigs.

I have been thinking about Boise a lot the past year, few urban thugs and illegals from what I discern. Nice mountains close and decent schools, although I still don't trust any of them. Lots of Kalifornians have been fleeing there so housing prices have risen rapidly. However there should be a building boom and lots of jobs as I think many people will be looking for places to flee declining urban battlegrounds like me. Planning a trip this summer to check it out and want to beat the rush.I am convinced things are togging worse in many place, doesn't matter if Trump wins or loses.

The story is told of a New Yorker who moved to a small town in the Texas as a child at the start of the last century. His family opened a General Store and in time, he took over the business. He married a local girl and raised seven children. During the depression, he helped out many families, taking their IOUs for necessities. He was active in the local civic organizations and became a deacon in his church. When he passed away in the 1970s, the entire town turned out for the funeral of this beloved man. They even chipped in to buy him a magnificent headstone upon which they engraved "He was almost one of us."

85 I don't think there is anything I have hated with such intensity as mask mania. But even here in So Cal the insanity is declining a little. I take one of my fat-tire bikes out every day, and put in ten to fifteen miles. Around here there are abundant wide, and empty sidewalks so I use them in lieu of the bike lanes out in traffic. I often ride facing the traffic, and make a note of the ratio of masked to unmasked drivers who pass. I figure it's a good indication of the number of truly paranoid fools who wear one alone in the car. Every time I see a diaperface the count begins. A week ago I rarely got past six or seven unmasked drivers before spotting a diaperface, and starting the count over. In the last few days the count has gone to ten to twelve. Today it was close to twenty. I know this isn't you, know, all scientific and all, but I grasp at anything that smells like hope. Maybe one day faces will be back in style...

Tyler is NICE!

Real close to there is where the guy that left the Alamo to go get help, then returned with a 'no', the left a second time to try again is buried. I think his name was Rose. The Yellow Rose of Texas was written in his memory I think.

There's the Texas State Railway on Rusk, just down the road. That train shook an egg loose in Smash and that's how junior-ette became our 20th anniversary surprise.

West of there is the biggest damned yard sale in the world. Forgot the name of the town, but the horde will remember for me.

Try touring the Big Thicket civil war battle.

One thing I never hear black conservatives talking about (and it could just be that I've missed it) is how white liberals really think about blacks. White liberals don't really see blacks as the intellectual or moral equal of whites. If they did then they would hold them to the same standard that they hold whites to.

I guess this is the "soft bigotry of lowered expectations." I wish we'd hear more about this.

139 I've been through Tyler a time or two. Summers are hot up there (up relative to me), but at least you'll get a winter, too. Town is big enough to have what you need, small enough to not have what you don't, and close enough to Dallas and Ft. Worth to visit easy.
When you get to Texas, I'd recommend visiting the Perot Museum in Dallas, and the Arboretum there also. Love the Arboretum, especially fall, Christmas, and spring. The San Antonio Riverwalk is a great visit, Take a boat at least once. Wander along, eat, drink, have a hotel room.

If you like camping, there's some fabulous state parks. Palo Duro, Inks Lake, Big Bend, and Davis Mountains (including the old army outpost and a star party at the McDonald Observatory).

168 Well, I got booted off the comments section of Portland's main alt-weekly today.

Apparently my acerbic comments about the newspaper's pro-Antifa reporting, and Portland's elected officials celebrating a daily demonstration with thousands of people, while Portland continues to ban social gatherings and church services, was too much for them. Never had a comment censored (which they do occasionally) - apparently it was the totality of my commenting that was unacceptable.

There are signs that this was part of a more general ban on right-wing commenters generally (hard to determine whether this is true or not, since you don't know who has been banned).

I was thinking of responding by putting stickers on the paper's newspaper boxes downtown saying that the paper is collaborating with the cops, but it's easier to just let the paper die a natural death - they are already furiously begging their readers for money to stay afloat.

170 A lot of conservatives talk about that, and the inherent racism of Leftist policies toward minorities, particularly black people.

But the *professional* conservatives? They *never* talk about it. It isn't an approved talking point for them.

Now, of course, the left will say that they expect less of blacks because of white privledge (in fact, I believe that WP was invented in part for just this purpose).

Of course the left never explains Asians. Or why they expect less of brown people in other countries.

Posted by: Advo at June 04, 2020 10:28 PM (SEqlD)

But, be advised, most of those are serious drives from Tyler (I don't know where Inks Lake is). You DEFINITELY want to go to Palo Duro, though. And I've said it before: Palo Duro is great, but perhaps one of the most grossly underrated attractions in the state is about an hour's drive to the SE of there. I am of course talking Caprock Canyons. Some of the locals 'round here would argue that Caprock Canyons might actually be MORE scenic than Palo Duro, and less crowded, as Palo Duro is more well known.

I have been thinking about Boise a lot the past year, few urban thugs and illegals from what I discern. Nice mountains close and decent schools, although I still don't trust any of them. Lots of Kalifornians have been fleeing there so housing prices have risen rapidly. However there should be a building boom and lots of jobs as I think many people will be looking for places to flee declining urban battlegrounds like me.

228 I got this message from Yelp tonight:

Our country has a long and fraught history of systemic oppression and anti-Black racism that we have shamefully not yet come close to overcoming. Recent events, starting with the brutal murders of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, have made racial injustice something that we must deal with immediately as a society.
We have a lot of work to do, and it's on all of us to do that work. As an organization with diverse employees, users, and customers, Yelp is committed to supporting our Black colleagues, standing against racism and injustice in our communities, and laying the groundwork for change that is long overdue.
To start, the Yelp Foundation is donating $500,000 to the Equal Justice Initiative and NAACP Legal Defense Fund -- two organizations whose work is uplifting and empowering Black communities across the country.

Second, the White House (& hopefully majorities elsewhere), we see what "Draining the Swamp" was meant to have been, in the first term.

Except this time with a fury and vengeance that the Dems have earned in abundance.

I, for one, would not object to certain of them having bounties on their heads.

Get a Glock. Simple to use, fast reload, easy to clean and maintain.

There are better guns, maybe, but Glocks are light, have a high capacity of rounds (which, this week, I hope people see the benefit) and are reliable AF. Plus, you have good odds of being able to find one, as the best selling brand in America.

On that note, I donated to a black guy in Michigan running against Stabmenow. You know what happens if you donate to a political candidate. So, you would not believe the number of African Americans running for office as republicans. I know that it is because I am on "lists", but I do think that a sizable number of blacks are questioning liberalism and the democratic party.

Like the WHO, they're all in the pay of China, Inc. and the Gates/Soros Syndicate, where they're manufacturing the cures together--just like they manufactured the virus together--hey, Tony!

But they got their needed headline at the time.

A curious blogger noticed the researchers were living in a van down by the river and their office was in the Starbucks lobby for the free bathrooms.

As for conspiracy theories, we live in a time when the Clintons ran a World-Wide Bribery Empire out of State, Obama was an Iranian asset, the FBI and CIA tried to overthrow our government, the guy who was funding the Wuhan Bat-Lab is in charge of our response to the virus made there and ANTIFA has Senators on speed-dial.

Don't even go shopping unless you're prepared to buy right there and then. Helps avoid "the one who got away" syndrome.

All of my "one who got away" regrets involve automobiles. I had the opportunity - and the money - to buy an original-run 1964 Mustang convertible. All original. Not restored, but actually original. Barely driven, garaged or covered its entire life, fewer than 50k original miles.

If the Negro wasnt taken, tricked or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America, the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems.

336 Here is how the Chloroquine study grift went --

(In my opinion, having too much experience with research grant whores)

These guys, (surgisphere) were trying to grift for grant money - they planned to make agreements with hospitals to do some form of data management where they get access to their digital records, and in exchange provide some undefined service for the hospital. Problem is, to do this you need money for sales and marketing and IT, and their plan was to get grant money off research "studies". But to do the study, you first have to have the data. To get the data you need money. This is a problem.

Solution - fake studies in high profile areas where there is a lot of grant money floating around.

My point is, and this is rampant in funded "science" (like AGW) that people will tell you whatever they think you want to hear for a few bucks, and back it up with all kinds of fancy graphs.

So I think it was an attempted grift, but that they knew which lies to tell since that is how you get money. It is a corrupt system.

Had they not been found out, they would have had millions flowing in on all kinds of grants - that leads to more data agreements and more papers. Mo money.

You're one week in to your free trial of Militant Communism. We hope you're enjoying the experience. We would like to take this opportunity to ask you to take a brief survey regarding your free trial. We expect this survey to take less than five minutes.

1. On a scale of 1 to 7, how satisfied are you with your free trial of Militant Communism?

2. On a scale of 1 to 7, how likely are you to recommend Militant Communism to friends and family?

3. In 500 characters or less, what do you think we can do to make Militant Communism better?

4. On a scale of 1 to 7, how accurate is the statement "I have recently made different choices due to my experience with Militant Communism?"

5. On a scale of 1 to 7, how likely are you to continue with Militant Communism when the trial period ends?

401 I believe this whole Covid thing, if examined, is going to go down to be mostly a setup.

First we have the knowingly Fake Predictions.
The purposeful over intubation of patients and its direct influence of their death.
The seeding of nursing homes to raise the numbers.
The coordination to immediately deem HCQ a failure before test #1 took place.

I'd like to see the connections of those who pushed the lockdown and companies that A) Boosted sales (Target, Wallmart, Amazon) and B) Had an unusually high amount of stocks sold short, as that's generally a rarity in trading, especially at a time the economy was already rebounding from a dip due to the trade war.

You can also throw in those who are connected to China.

I think these people have been waiting for an opportunity to call a virus a pandemic, so they can use it to cash in while collapsing rivals. People will try and point to the medical companies, but they generally get huge payouts during every bi-yearly outbreak, this has to do with those who wanted this global shutdown.

Some are from Spokane but a handful, assumed to be leading are from out of the area.

There are boots on the ground hunting these guys. If they are doing this in Spokane, I'm assuming it is taking place elsewhere. Sheriff and PA's office are very cooperative with the feds.

437 About those masks....
Yesterday the girl spawn and I got our hair cut. Masks required by salon. Do not like but whatever, I needed a haircut. And since it's up close, I can let that one go.
After the salon, we met the boy spawn at Menards to get supplies for a small lawn project. Boy used to work at this store. Masks required, do not like but have the mask provided by the salon so okay fine. Masks on we went inside where the employee s guarding the turnstiles say the girl spawn cannot be in the store since she is not 16 years old. Oh and if somebody claims to be over 16 they ask for a driver's license to prove it. Now my girl is 14 and short. Most people think she's about 12. So if she was sixteen and looked like a fifteen yr old she would have been carded to go in to a fucking home improvement store. I didn't argue. I told my spawn we were leaving. The boy said he would get what we needed and bring it out to my truck. I said, no you wont. He looked confused and I told him, loud enough so the "guards" and manager could hear.... " this store isn't ever getting my money again. If they put stupid restrictions in place that are not based on any scientific medical fact and have a disgusting bias against kids, then they do not get my business. We will go to Lowe's instead. ". Found everything we needed at Lowe's, for less than it would have cost at Menards and no one commanded me to wear a mask.

+++++++++++++
We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island, whatever the costs may be. We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender! And if - which I do not for a moment believe - this island or large part of it is subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British fleet, would carry on the struggle until in G-d;s good time the New World, with all its power and might, steps forward to the rescue and the liberation of the Old.

Rutgers used to be the most popular tomato in the US, selling nearly a majority of the tomatoes. But the market changed and went to mechanical picking and long haul transport, and Rutgers weren't too good for that.

So they began to breed tomatoes for longer shelf life and more resistance to bruising. This is why commercial tomatoes are crap compared to garden ones.

What is now known locally as Rutgers has literally evolved over the years. Rutgers U, as part of some anniversary thing, recreated the original Rutgers strain. Campbell's Soup Company still had some "genetic material" that enabled them to get it right.

Rutgers have the best tang to me, more acidic than others, and that's what I prefer.

Michigan, in case you couldn't guess it, is hiding the number of deaths they have had in nursing homes from Covid-19.

The problem with being libertarian is "what flavor"? Classic Liberal? Volutnarist? AnCap? Anarcho? Rothbardian? Weld?


Property Ownership for voting is a classic liberal stance (Jeffersonian also, and one of the reasons he was against entailment of estates codified in Virginia colonial law), and is an attempt to limit the franchise to people with skin in the game.

There is an actual theory that rules and laws can be created and voted on by land owners but there is a plebiscite veto power of all citizens to establish a permanent peaceful nullification function, and that one has some odd outcomes in games theory: but that is more of a voluntarist-cum-best practices economic libertarianism that is opposed to a lot of AnCap and Anarcho libertarian stances.

I had a Paypal dispute and my bank could only block any person trying to get that exact dollar amount from my bank account. But Paypal wouldn't address it and my bank admitted that if a charge came in from Paypal and the other person just changed the amount of the charge, the funds would leave my account and there was nothing I could do. I deleted my Paypal account that day. But then today I go to Amazon to buy something and a big f-ing Black Lives Matter banner was across my screen first thing. Yeesh.

560 ..I myself might end up in texas sooner or later. I used to go there twice a year. What a blast. I would hate to be away from the jersey beaches, even though I don't go "on" them much, but its nice seeing the ocean from the car or harley. I'm in a red area, but too many blue shitholes fucking things up.

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at June 04, 2020 11:37 PM (9Om/r)




I live 1/2 mile from the beach. A nice drive to the West on Seawall Boulevard, and in about eight miles, the Sewall ends, the road descends to about 3 ft. above sea level, and now you're on FM 3005, the Bluewater Highway.

'Bout thirty miles West, and you'll arrive at Surfside Beach, which is not only the most attractive beach in the area, but it also has the prettiest surf, and you can drive you car right onto the beach itself.

Three miles to the North of Surfside Beach, you'll find Lake Jackson, which is also a major oil tanker port. Across the bridge to the East, is Freeport, where all those multi-million dollar, seventy foot Bertrams and such lie at berth, awaiting their next 1,000 mile Marlin run.

You can keep running coastal or near-costal roads, all the way down to Corpus Christi and points South.

Until you hit the King Ranch, that is.

You gotta go around the King Ranch, which is larger than the State of Rhode Island.

My small city has an interesting hybrid - it has a police force of seven people (I think), but they are all actually sheriff's deputies. They operate out of a station in the town, and frequently deal with lower-level chronic enforcement issues in town, while most of the police protection is provided by normal sheriff's deputies.

What do you consider a small town? The village I live outside of is the county seat. Also, I just read some of the complaints to the police for the year, a lot of neighbors complaining about dogs barking, business alarms randomly going off, nothing serious, but nothing to bother the county sheriff over. Let the towns pay more taxes if they feel safer. It's also a tourist area, so the village police can handle the bar issues if bikers get out of hand.

Small businesses are being slaughtered. Many small businesses have been killed, 3 of which I described in an earlier thread today that I am personally aware of.

This is a political war. And this isn't Missoula or Great Falls. I have lived here my entire life, and never seen anything remotely close to this.

Compare this to the Vietnam war, and 1970 Seattle was in Vietnam crazy mode. This is much, much more unlawful, much more widespread in society (not just college students not wanted to be drafted, or radical communists of the time, which Seattle has always had)

The Blue staters that run Washington state don't care. They really don't. The curve has long ago been flattened in this state. There is zero excuse to keep this state shut down, except for Amazon, government, and WalMart.

They have collectively decided to let Washington die, because why?

Evita Peron, who Juan kept in a coffin in his living room in Paris all the time he was in political exile.

I suspect his second wife, Isabel, was less than pleased at that, but she got the presidency out of it, until she was deposed and arrested and her country taken over by a bloodstained military Junta.

and . . . that went dark fast.

I live 1/2 mile from the beach. A nice drive to the West on Seawall Boulevard, and in about eight miles, the Sewall ends, the road descends to about 3 ft. above sea level, and now you're on FM 3005, the Bluewater Highway.

'Bout thirty miles West, and you'll arrive at Surfside Beach, which is not only the most attractive beach in the area, but it also has the prettiest surf, and you can drive you car right onto the beach itself.

Three miles to the North of Surfside Beach, you'll find Lake Jackson, which is also a major oil tanker port. Across the bridge to the East, is Freeport, where all those multi-million dollar, seventy foot Bertrams and such lie at berth, awaiting their next 1,000 mile Marlin run.

You can keep running coastal or near-costal roads, all the way down to Corpus Christi and points South.

Until you hit the King Ranch, that is.

You gotta go around the King Ranch, which is larger than the State of Rhode Island.

644 Well the Floyd case looks iffy to me. Fentanyl and meth in his system, positive for coronavirus, heart condition, coroner said on his death certificate that it wasn't a clear "homicide" and the cops were on tape talking about trying to keep him alive. I don't understand a knee on the neck, but I don't understand while all the other cops are now in trouble. But can we just wait for the facts? I'm tired of witch hunt justice, mob rule and the other forms of human sacrifice that the Left engages in. How are these cops going to get a fair trial if the threat is convict them or civil war? My uncle told me when he was growing up the only way you saw a black man on a newspaper was when he murdered someone. So I was happy when we got balance, equality, positivity and many black role models. But then the Left went crazy and decided that we can't cover crime nationally if the person is black or Muslim. To go on an all out assault on whites, particularly white men. Christians can be attacked for their beliefs, no one else can. And this all out race war. Pathetic RINOs allow Republicans to be painted with horrible things, never fight back and call out the vicious hate babies crimes on the Left. The AP just instructed writers that using the term looting is "racist." GTFOOH

Also, I just read some of the complaints to the police for the year, a lot of neighbors complaining about dogs barking, business alarms randomly going off, nothing serious, but nothing to bother the county sheriff over. Let the towns pay more taxes if they feel safer. It's also a tourist area, so the village police can handle the bar issues if bikers get out of hand.

669 So, I manged to burn a few rods today. Had this old car frame, that I had stripped all the still-good parts from. So I flipped it upside down, and welded on four legs cut from some steel scrap I had lying around, and fitted the legs with cross braces to keep them from spreading, and diagonal braces to keep the whole thing from racking. Put broad metal feet on the legs, too, so it won't sink into the ground.

Got it flipped back upright, and it is standing on its legs, nice and solid. One weld broke on one of the diagonal braces; will have to redo that. But I have another session of welding yet, anyway, to put some upright pegs on the frame rails to divide it into bays, so I can use it as metal rack to store lengths of steel, pipe, and miscellaneous long slender car parts, like leaf springs, drive shafts, or bumpers.

Once done building it, I can pick it up with the loader on the tractor, trundle it out back of the shop, and manhandle it into a gap between two trees, where it will remain, mostly out of sight, but still useful.

689 The Coeur d'Alene area (and all of North Idaho) is absolutely stunning. I miss it! If there were more job opportunities out there, I'd probably still be living there, but a lot of what's up that way is with the timber industry or with tourism. Houses on the lake in CdA have gotten crazy expensive, and going up north to Bonner county isn't much better - Sandpoint is amazing, but you've basically got two types of housing stock - the original, old stuff, which is typically kind of small, run down, and cheap, and then the new stuff (much spurred on by the now-defunct Coldwater Creek) which is overpriced. Further north, Bonners Ferry is much cheaper, but you're really out there by then. (Bonners Ferry, I believe, is the closest town to Ruby Ridge.) I love it, I miss it, and I hope to be able to get back sometime.

The guards with white gloves kept shooing people along, it was obvious people were lagging as we shuffled by Ho - enjoying the dry cool (June in Hanoi).

And even THAT would not have happened but for diplomatic pressure from Australia. Because, of course Somalians wearing badges should be allowed to kill outright young blondes wearing their night clothes. And shoot them while in the passenger seat of the car, extending his firearm across the driver, who could have stopped the whole thing, but didn't, because that would have required some common sense or respect for a basic level of humanity that says that Thou should not murder a tall attractive female in her negligee just because she called the cops.

I have lived here since 1986 - must have missed your ONT last week when you gave reasons for leaving Baltimore - although I spent a year there in the eighties while my husband was doing a fellowship so I am aware it has only gotten worse (if that was even possible....) Tyler is deep red and I think you will find lots of folks with the same core beliefs. If you have any questions, let me know and I will attempt to put you in touch with the right folks. Btw - saw way up thread questions about Inks Lake - that's in Central Texas. And the big garage sale is in Canton - First Monday. Lots of lakes near Tyler - and throughout East Texas, plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. It really is the best of both worlds - fairly inexpensive to live here, good people, lots of trees, near major cities for a visit and CONSERVATIVE......Welcome, hope you and your family are as happy here as I have been!

I've heard lots of nice things about Priest River, just never made it up that way. Made it up to BC a few times, and even AB once (though it was my second time there). Just have to say, BC was terrible driving, not only because of the mountains, but because the roads were in such bad repair, and the markings were horrible to try to see at night. As soon as we got into AB, though, things were much flatter, and there were roads that were smooth and well-marked.

719 Actually, a procession led by relatives of those killed by this or that variety of human would be quite lit and instructive.

Do it in order of magnitude/number.

So relatives of young black men killed by other young black men would be first - and about 50 times the size of any following group (could be over- or under-estimating here, haven't re-checked the stats), with whites killed by blacks next, on and on, with blacks killed by police waaaay back - about 10. Vs. many thousands in the lead cohort.

Actually, a great way to visualize it. One of the guys bird-dogging the WuHuFlu scandal (i.e., official public health policy after about mid-April) translated the risk implied by the stratified IFR into some Simpson's imagery, pretty funny - and very clear. I love the idea of the "Parade of Victims", by order of magntitude.

746 Answer: Kuibyshev.

Diplomats and some of the Soviet ministries evacuated there as the Wehrmacht approached in October.

Stalin's special train was ready/waiting at the station.

At what could be called the last moment, he decided to stay. They even had the Revolution Day parade (on its new calendar day in November) in Red Square - with most of the troops literally continuing to march on to their positions west of the city (probably a unique military parade in the modern era).

There was a day or so of chaos just before Stalin decided to stay. The only actual significant rebellion after consolidation of Soviet misrule, certainly in a major Russian city, and obviously only one in the capital. Very interesting day or two.

770 Miklos, you might find it amusing that a Peter Zwack and family live in Newport. His sister, who grew up with my wife in NYC, invited us to her 60th bday party in Budapest, where we got to tour the Unicom distillery and museum. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, they sued for, and recovered many of the family properties as well as the Unicum brand.

Family lore is that they were dispossessed when the Communists took over after WW2, and were only allowed to leave if they gave the secret Unicum recipe to the government (Unicum is the state liqueur of Hungary). Needless to say, they ginned up a bogus recipe, which the government tortured Hungarians with for 40 years, until the Zwacks returned with the original recipe after communisms collapse...

A couple of sources say Tyumen, for example:

https://tinyurl.com/ydyvkvam

The government was evacuated to Kuibyshev, but other things went elsewhere - the Bolshoi Ballet was evacuated to Alma-Ala (I think), and a lot of museum pieces were evacuated to Novosibirsk (which had an uncompleted opera house available to store things).

My garage got invaded by a stupid robin today. I had the big door closed but the man door was standing open. I had spent several hours on the riding mower, and then went to get on with my welding project. I go in the garage. "Chatter-chatter, flappity-flap", damned robin is going apeshit in the garage. So I open the big overhead door to let it out. It continues to flap around inside, squawking. Lights on the top side of the garage door, where it's up against the ceiling. This is one dumb robin.

So what happens next? Damned if a barn swallow doesn't come zooming in through the open bay door, does one of its patented high-G U-turns, and zooms out again. And the stupid robin follows it. Gone.

The riots aren't riots, and if they are they're police riots, the looting is a valid response to 400 years of oppression, but it's mostly white supremacists doing it anyway, and hey, the stores are insured, lol.

807 WeirdDave,
We moved to Texas 4 1/2 years ago--job transfer for my husband. It is a great state and the people are very friendly. I've gotten my roses from Chamblee's in Tyler for years--lovely people and gorgeous, healthy plants.
When we moved I looked at 64 houses--since it was a relo with decent perks involved it made sense for me to look at so many houses--particularly in a big city like Houston. Given the traffic we actually spent the night near the Woodlands to see what the commute would be like and nixed it b/c of that. I doubt you'll have that issue in Tyler.
I will say, though, it would be worthwhile for you to have your RE agent film the neighborhood. Houses can look quite different when approached from the road, you could check Google maps too for that view.
We specifically wanted a very walkable neighborhood and are very happy that we can walk in the neighborhood, visit with neighbors and walk to a bunch of local restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Commute is only 15 min for my husband on local roads--for me it is either at home or to the airport.

Good luck with the move. I think you'll like Texas!

Thanks Sock. It has been a bad week with all the nonsense around this state. And watching other small businesses fold because Jay Insless is a truly horrible human being made me really depressed today. I'm trying to shake it, normally not a problem, but damn, everyone has a breaking point.

I really love this country and this state, and I am now aware many others who make a lot more money than me, don't give a rat's ass about it.

I have always been the guy who is looked on to pull the wagon instead of riding in it, but I always thought most people were reasonable and try to solve problems.

This week just topped off the realization that I was really wrong. Around here, especially most of the leaders, don't care about problems of the regular, backbone citizen that just wants to contribute and get along and pull their weight.

And every option I can think of to fix it is really horrible.

840 Weird Dave - Hopefully you ses this at somepoint, since it is so late.

I grew up in Baltimore during the Schaffer era. Graduated from Baltimore Poly. I loved living there. Eventually had to move to DC subburbs for work.

20 years ago I upped and move to Florida for a new job. Took a 40% pay cut and saw my take home pay go up.

I would never move back. There are some things I miss, but a lot of things I grew to despise. Places like Florida and Texas are heaven to me.

The Zwack family make a number of different products, including palinka and all kinds of stuff.

The Original Unicum was created for the then Austrian Emperor, who suffered from an acid stomach. Zwack was the Court Physician.

It works. Unicum is highly effective regarding acid/acid reflux.

844 "The founders probably thought that too. In the end they had no fucks left to give." Beserker.

Well, maybe. BUT they were brave and committed. At Yorktown, the Brits had commandeered the nicest house in town, owned by an ancestor of my husband. Washington and troops were reluctant to fire cannon balls on the house and that man said, nuts, fire away! The cause was the thing. there is still part of a cannon shot in the walls of the house.

This is one reason why I am so darn determined to keep fighting. They didn't quit, even when it looked really bleak. I think about some of the soldiers that dug in during the Battle of the Bulge, horrible weather and looked really bleak, again, the response to request for surrender was "Nuts!".

So the h*ll with these stupid virtue signaling idiots. We've got the right side, literally and figuratively, even if we go down in the fight

First, Welcome Aboard to the Tx Mo Meet. I won't try to describe it, you'll simply have to be there and become as one with Teh Horde.

But for all that is Holy.

Please book your room there IN Corsicana.

Gruene Hall and Canyon Lake are three to four hour drives, at best. You to THERE to enjoy THERE.

Tx Mo Meet, you book in Corsicana.

Should you find all the room are full, your next possible town is in Ennis, TX.

Pro-Tip. Book now, if not three months ago.

I've gotta wake up in about four hours, so I'm now officially kaput.

They were totally looted Monday night in Van Nuys by "Peaceful Pros".....(otherwise now known as "Looter Technicals")...holy shit. They even dragged his 500 lbs floor safe full of "control Drugs" out into the back parking lot of the building before an LAPD helicopter spotted them and sent in ground units and chased the pussies off. He opened business the next day sans glass on the front of his business and cleaned out of ?"Hypertensive meds and all of his Vitamins? Guess the pussies have parents with high blood presure and they need to keep themselves in shape for more looting.

Trump's base is safe. I'm fairly sure that independents are horrified by what they see from the left. Anyone with a brain knows that the price tag for Dem/Left proposals means huge economic pain for them, not to mention destabilizing the country further.

But for sure any one of us knows that the Dem/Leftist plan is to "make us pay" for voting for Trump. And they will keep throwing EVERYTHING at Trump to prevent him from dismantling the Deep State and their various rat schemes for $$ and power.

I think Trump will prevail, but he won't be able to get as much done as he'd like. Heck even Grassley is harassing him now b/c of Trump firing the IC IG.

More sore than I expected to be. Every move of my left arm seems to pull on the incision. Very uncomfortable Thursday and not much better right now. Doing a lot of sleeping, and the reason why I got here late, due to not wanting to move my arm. I'm glad I can pull some of my soups out of the freezer so I don't have to cook; reheating is one thing, cooking is probably a little more painful, what with all the arm movements involved.

I'm going to contact the Doc about this excessive stiffness/muscular tenderness/soreness. When having you arm hang down by your side when you walk hurts, . . . .

Second, they are ignorant if the disagree with democrat-approved religious dogma on racial issues.

Lastly, and this is where it really gets good. We like and cite to people like Candace Owens, Thomas Sowell, Justice Thomas, because it the well-worn ploy of racists to use people of color to perpetuate racism and oppression since the beginning of time.

More sore than I expected to be. Every move of
my left arm seems to pull on the incision. Very uncomfortable Thursday
and not much better right now. Doing a lot of sleeping, and the reason
why I got here late, due to not wanting to move my arm. I'm glad I can
pull some of my soups out of the freezer so I don't have to cook;
reheating is one thing, cooking is probably a little more painful, what
with all the arm movements involved.



I'm going to contact the Doc about this excessive stiffness/muscular
tenderness/soreness. When having you arm hang down by your side when
you walk hurts, . . . .

So sorry that you are swollen and sore. You know sometimes in surgery they position you awkwardly on the table and then you are sore afterwards.

Hopefully that is the case. Keep us posted. Sending up some healing prayers for you right now!

No, it wasn't arm surgery; it was an ICD battery replacement surgery. This time, I wasn't knocked out, just lidocaine local injections where the Doc made the new incision (on the old scar from the install and prior battery replacement (2 surgeries four years apart). While they draped my face so I couldn't see anything, I could feel the pressure and hear the little electric screwdriver unscrewing and rescrewing the battery in. It just seems this time my left pectoral muscle area is extremely sore and any left arm movement hurts as it seems to pull on those muscles and the incision area. I didn't experience this level of discomfort the last battery replacement. I had to put a mixing bowl up on a top shelf in my kitchen cabinet yesterday, lifting both arms, and it was very painful. Even extending my arm out straight to the side hurts. I know I've been cut open and all, but still; it was "only" about a three inch incision. Maybe I was just being an optimist and thought 'no big deal' having been through this procedure before with minimal post-procedure discomfort/pain. But it was a different doctor, so there's that, too.

The scary thing is, if you read Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly", Uncle Tom was a hero in that book.

928 ouch.

just my rough take, as someone with more than their own share of ortho/muscle issues. (and no, this is NOT medical advice):

talk to your doc/surgeon about warm compresses in the area, and anti-inflammatories such as aleve, advil etc. since i am most definitely NOT a pharmacist, i have no idea if they are safe for you to take, and, even if i did, i sure as hello would not treat over the internet.

it they did not give you specific instructions on post operative placement/restrictions of the arm, experiment for yourself. if having it in a sling is less painful, and no one told you not to, consider it.

above all, contact the office, and insist on additional guidance. they are required to respond. if it hurts, and they didn't cover it, they missed a step.

939 We are teaching the Left that they can tantrum their way through stealing the election and we'll just let it go because we don't want to make too much of a fuss.

A little bit of wordsmithing and I can turn that into a Principle that Goldebert will parrot on Twitter to justify another noble call to surrender in our name.

I'm also hearing a lot of Very Reasonable Points why we are should keep our powder dry and wait for the Marxist Left to rue the day that will never come.

I know I'm a bit to quick to reach for violent solutions, I think that's more frustration speaking than sociopathy. But I have also come to the sad realization that a good number of people giving Very Good Reasons why we shouldn't fight today are never going to fight at all.

I guess there is an attitude that if the Rule of Law fails then it wasn't worth protecting to begin with. So they will call Game Over and retreat to a private life of fireside stories of how back in the day they were one of proud few who KNEW. Everything has come to pass just as they warned.

aspirin on top of Warfarin?

Holy Shit NO!... unless you've given strict dosing instructions, by someone familiar with your particular case. if i saw an order for someone like you on my floor at a hospital, i'd not only flag it, but contact my pharmacist Stat, to review it and contact the doc as needed.

not trying to scare you, but certain things are red lines, and they tend to set alarm bells off.

i'd politely suggest you go back to the quacks office, on the phone, or in person, and demand answers to a variety of things, to include your 5th vital sign (pain control). it's a marker the Joint Commission monitors. and they can lose accreditation over a callous indifference towards it in patients.

In my case, due a silent heart attack and heart scarring, I have an electrical issue with my heart. The electrical impulses that cross the heart to make it beat properly can go haywire with me as the scarring prevents proper electrical flow. Without that ICD, I'd be long dead already as I've had 10 shocks in the past to get my heart out of fibrillation.

almost passing out every time I got up. (no problems before). while in the

951 beanervt, the 'best' part was a '7 shocks in 13 hours' shock storm. I was told by the Doc that the shocks were appropriate, as compared to being a faulty device and inappropriate. That event put me in the Cardiac Care Unit for 12 days, with an extra 5 due to the Amiodarone IV I had administered to 'calm my heart down'. That stuff was like putting Drano in my veins, pretty much ruining them; I was there for the extra days due to a major infection in both arms from the IVs. Now all my blood work is taken from the back of my right hand. And I have blood work every month, sometimes more often, due to being on Coumadin for life. My genetics make me a blood clot factory, not only with DVTs multiple times, but a clot in a lung and my heart as well.

I made the mistake of briefly tuning into Fox Sports Radio this afternoon. There was a former athlete-of-color (didn't catch his name) who said something like (and I paraphrase) "I forgive Drew Brees. I forgive him much like I do my young daughter after she has done something wrong and has been corrected for it". I almost puked.

Posted by: Notorious BFD at June 04, 2020 10:55 PM

Someone posted this on Twitter yesterday or the day before:

"New Orleans is a large black community. That man [Drew Brees] has spent millions of dollars, and his time, effort and energy in the community to lift black communities up and help people of all backgrounds. And turned on for respecting the flag at all times. Wild."

Drew Brees should not have apologized and does not need to accept anyone's forgiveness. He did absolutely nothing wrong.

In fact, he's been a leader in his community in New Orleans for at least a decade.

He makes one statement about respecting the American flag and all that is forgotten?

Drew Brees should have told all his critics to lolgf. But, he's either a better man than that or he's just a pushover. Unfortunately, the times call for people to start pushing back on this madness and putting some knowledge to the mob about the reality of things in the Black community.

Unfortunately, we do not have very many people willing to do that. Drew Bress showed he is definitely not that person.

On this date in 1942, Ensign George Gay was picked up in the Pacific after having witnessed the sinking of three Japanese carriers during the Battle of Midway.

With his aircraft still in relatively good condition, he decided to make for Hornet after clearing the Japanese carrier. However, five Mitsubishi A6M Zeros brought his aircraft down in a hail of machine gun and cannon fire, killing his rear gunner, ARM3c Robert K. Huntington.

Exiting his aircraft, and floating in the ocean, he hid under his seat cushion for hours to avoid Japanese strafing attacks and witnessed the subsequent dive bombing attacks and sinking of three of the four Japanese aircraft carriers present.

After dark, Gay felt it was safe to inflate his life raft. He was rescued by a Navy Consolidated PBY Catalina after spending over 30 hours in the water. Gay was later flown to USS Vincennes (arriving June 28, 1942), before being transferred home. Of the squadron's thirty pilots and radiomen, Gay was the only survivor.

If Mr. 75 decided to go out and protest he knew that things might get hot. He took the chance and now he has to live with the consequences.
Was the cop wrong, don't know. That's for others to determine and punish him or not.

So let's see what we know about St. George Floyd:

--- big, burly Black man
--- long criminal history in Houston
--- went to prison for impersonating a water-meter reader, breaking into a pregnant woman's home, pistol-whipping her and robbing her
--- at the time of his arrest in Minneapolis, he was high on meth and fentanyl and aggressively resisting arrest

But yes, this is all about racism and police brutality...

I take it the reason for his criminal history in Houston is because of racism? Pistol-whipping the pregnant woman was to teach her a lesson about white supremacy? (I am assuming she was white?)

The more the facts come out about this asshole, the more everyone who supports him look like assholes themselves.

Don't be so daft. This man walked right into a police line, after being told multiple times to move back. He reached for police gear on the officer. They barely shove him and he moves backwards tripping as he goes. A 75 year old should know better. This is on HIM, not the police. I call him an old coot, 'cause I am one too.

In other, brighter news guys, be of good cheer and do not lose hope. Look at poll results thus far in the primaries. Even though nobody really has to vote for Trump to be our candidate, they are doing so in droves. Every count I have seen shows more people coming out to vote for Trump than for Rapey Joe even though Rapey Joe has yet to secure his nomination.

What they did not point out is that during the years of 2017-2018-2019, President Trump and his administration worked endlessly with the Black community to improve things for them --- record employment for Blacks and "PoC", prison reform, etc.

So someone needs to point out that "Black Lives Matter" just destroyed 3 years of progress and productivity for the Black community that President Trump helped them achieve.

Those who have pointed out that "Black Lives Matter" activists and supporters do not care about improving the lives of Blacks are spot-on. And that message needs to be repeated loudly and often.

1070 I'm a conservative, I believe government is corrupt, by it's very nature it can't help but be corrupt, and incompetent too. That's why I think that it should be sharply and ruthlessly limited in its scope and power. You're never going to get enough good people, making good laws, with wholesome intent. Won't happen. Can't, where human beings are involved. The solution is to contain the evil they can do by limiting the range of what they have the power to do.

into a pregnant woman's home, pistol-whipping her and robbing her

--- at the time of his arrest in Minneapolis, he was high on meth and fentanyl and aggressively resisting arrest



But yes, this is all about racism and police brutality"

I just watched Candace Owens video. Having hard time not posting this on FB as a rule I don't post about politics, really use it very little anymore,

1083 So a friend on Facebook replying to my post about St. George Floyd attacking the pregnant woman stated that Candace Owens pointed out that the woman he attacked was Black (not White as I had assumed, not having watched the Candace Owens video yet).

If that is the case, someone needs to ask "Black Lives Matter" and their supporters if her Black life mattered. And if the Black life of her developing baby mattered.

--

Our side, our opinions are now allowed with the same fervor and adoration leftist viewpoints are allowed (if at all). Nothing is fair for our side. And why are there even sides in this Floyd FUBAR anyway?? Why has this incident been made into a cudgel when it has nothing to do with D or R, and isn't even proven to have been racially motivated? That's just tearing me up. Cop did bad, his life is over. I get that. And I think it's the right response. He's gonna pay dearly for handling his job so poorly. But the explosion into how it's been woven as Trump's fault, and this 'take a side' (and it had better be the BLM side or else) insistence is absolute madness.

But getting back to the initial point, you hesitate to post Candace's video, and with good reason. That right there is the suppression of free speech. It's not allowed anymore, and if you dare express yourself as not having the approved viewpoint, down comes the hellfire by an army of ignorant social media outrage mobsters. That's why I don't do: FB, Twatter, Instagram, NextDoor or any other place like them.

I am definitely on board with this option as well.

Wouldn't it be great if they could put that in the next CBA.

Honestly, it's not that out of the question. At my current company, we have to take training classes every year to remind us to not make political statements where they could be interpreted as representing the company.

The complication with that for an athlete is that they can't separate themselves from their profession like the rest of us can.

When someone sees "Clyde Shelton" post here or my Clark Kent real life persona make statements, they don't automatically associate me with my place of employment, unless I were to make a point of that.

But with athletes, they are always associated with their teams. They can't go out there and say "I am saying this as Drew Brees the citizen, not Drew Brees the NO Saints QB or NFL football player."

Still, a "shut up and play" clause in the next CBA would be great. For all leagues.

The more the facts come out, I don't even think this has been proven yet either.

He seemed to have been using an approved training tactic in the Minneapolis Police manual to subdue a suspect who was aggressively resisting arrest.

The suspect died, because the aggressive nature of the restraint aggravated already bad health conditions.

If all that we know so far is true, it seems like the worst they can objectively convict him for is negligence, since there has to be a punishment for a suspect dying in police custody.

But, keyword there is "objectively". Obviously the SJW mob, the "all police are scum" mob (left and right) and the prosecution are all going to want either murder or manslaughter conviction, regardless of any facts.

Everyone is calling for "justice". I have a feeling that the majority of people saying that mean they want Officer Chauvin to die and that is the only "justice" they will accept.

1143 I have never seen anything that talks about them

the cops knew him and his record.



Posted by: Vic at June 05, 2020 07:29 AM (mpXpK)

They were not friends that anyone has said but they did work security at the same club for years (Chauvin had apparently worked off duty outside security for the place for over a decade and Floyd was a bouncer). Maybe not coincidentally, the club was apparently involved in shady dealings.


Take it for what it is worth: the conservative treehouse is saying that the club was a CIA operation to put counterfeit money out or some such. Whether that is true or not, I do not know but the club owner has confirmed that they both worked there.


Personally, I think that their previous association played a large part in Floyd's death. Counterfeit money accounts for an estimated 1 out of every $10,000 in the money supply. I would wager most people have inadvertently received and passed on at least one counterfeit 20 (that being the most counterfeited denomination). Floyd's arrest does not make much sense to me as just a reaction to the possible passing of one counterfeit 20 in a store (and it really doesn't make sense that a clerk would have suddenly "discovered" that a bill was counterfeit AFTER a transaction when the customer had already left rather than during the transaction).

I think most of it is virtue-signaling, but some of it is prevention of mob attacks.

Considering that if a company or business puts out an incorrect statement or no statement at all, they are deemed to be the enemy to the BLM cause.

While I am nauseated by my company's statement about racism and how it's our responsibility as a company to change that about our country, etc... I have to hope that a big part of the reason to put out that statement is to prevent angry mobs from attacking. Not physically, but through social media mob pressure.

Same goes for any Judge that hears the case.

All the Prosecutor has to do is walk up to the front, look at the jury, and say "Hey! This guy! (points at Chauvin) Amiright??? The Prosecution rests."

There was a good Tweet by Chris Loesch I came across last night that talked about the stats showing more Whites die in police custody per 100,000 arrests than Blacks per 100,000 arrests.

Someone responded to his Tweet with a study that had been done showing more stats like this.

I think this needs to be discussed and researched even more. Such as the incidence of Black cop on Black suspect brutality compared to White cop on Black suspect brutality.

Everyone is making this a "cops are bad" and "cops are racist", but what if the majority of police brutality against Black suspects is being done by Black cops? Ruins the "racism" part of the narrative, if true.

1176 Personally I like Tyler. I like the trees and the green and the humidity doesn't get to me like it gets to Mr. Coyote. I have another friend who worked in Tyler for a few years and could not stand the humidity. Said friend is from W. Texas, however, and could not get used to not having the wind and wide open vistas from their home base.

The people I know from/in Tyler are from old money and are part of a moneyed little "society" group. However, the most relentlessly friendly person I've ever met in my life is from Tyler. Like, never (publicly or in the outer friend ring anyways) has a bad day. All of the people I have met through this person are also quite friendly and just good people.

Getting out of a big metro area will change your perspective, I think, of the US. I think you have chosen wisely.
