Take Off For The Great White ONT

Well guys, it seems like we're not alone. The civil unrest has reached Canada.

Darn.jpg

Virtue: Signaled

So the other day, I think it was....Wednesday? Might have been Tuesday. Anyhow, millions of people posted black boxes to their social media accounts in order to “affect change”. There aren't enough rolleyes in the world.

OK, everybody here who always agrees 100% with another person, raise your hand.

I didn't think so. One of the things that drives me nuts is how the left tends to march in lockstep while on the right many people are willing to scream “Burn the witch!” when anyone else on our side disagrees about something or does something that they don't like. And I'm not talking about the Never Trump grifters like Billy Krystol (Your Captain), Rick Wilson (Your Ship's Doctor), Max Boot (Your Yoeman Purser), George Will (Your Bartender), Jonah Goldberg (Vicki) and Tom “The Expert” Nichols (Your Cruise Director). These people are rightfully excoriated by Ace on a daily basis. And I realize that part of it can be attributed to the fact that we're individualists while they are collectivists.

No, I'm talking about the vitriol directed from the right at people like Candace Owens (She's an opportunist who changed positions!) or Charlie Kirk (Trumper!). Both of them are doing more for the conservative cause right now than a thousand op-eds in the WSJ. You build a coalition by working with people who, if you're lucky, you will agree with 80% of the time. You can compromise on the 20%, or work with other folks on that, but schisms in the name of ideological purity are a sure way to hand the country over to the commies.

Anyhow, here's an article In defense of Charlie Kirk and Turning Point USA.

ETA Update on moving to Tyler. They countered and we accepted. About 7 grand more than I was hoping the counter offer would be, but I wasn't going to quibble as accepting means they will cancel the open house they had scheduled for this weekend. So, unless something goes wrong (barring something like a bad inspection, there are 2 things that are possible but not probable) we're Texas bound.

The problem lies in the preceding paragraph. We have a long history of making compromises with people who only really care about the 20% and the 80% was just talk. So we've been conditioned to expect betrayal. I'm not talking just politics either here. My church (currently not really meeting) is on our third pastor in a row that seemed okay, but the one thing he was leftist on turns out to be his passion in life.


Maybe the existential threat we're under will fix that, because I can't think of any other way. I have no problem with Candace or Charlie, by the way, just wanted to make the observation.

It is a good idea. I had the cardboard box on the market for three days, had over 20 showings and three offers. Took the one that was highest over asking. Look for this to become the norm as people attempt to escape leftist hellholes.

82 A note about Tyler, posted this in the last thread but since you're here, Weird Dave:

as I left downtown Tyler this afternoon, I saw a bunch of people gathering in the square, and I thought "oh no, not here too." But when I got home, I found out that a black pastor from Kilgore had asked to have a community prayer meeting on the square, and he had invited people from all faiths to come down to the square tonight to pray with him, for Peace in the Community and the Nation. That made my spirits pick up considerably.

Of course you'll never see that on national news, we're just hicks out in the wilderness, not worthy of any attention. But we're here, whether they pay any attention to us or not.

(fyi, Kilgore is about 30 miles to the east)

Could things have gone any worse if they'd just left the kid with his mother? It seems like Vader did nothing but turn the world into hell for most of his life, then he gets to bug out at the end as a 'good' guy.

97 I'm writing a children's book that my daughter has, after many years of me asking, agreed to illustrate.

It's titled "You're White, And That's Alright".

It follows a young boy who is shamed by his liberal teacher and multi-cultural classmates for being white.

He is obviously dejected and feels bad about his whiteness, but his father begins to tell him of all the great things white people have done throughout history. Going to the moon. Discovering antibiotics. Creating the automobile. Etc, you get the picture.

In the end the teacher begins to shame him again in class, and he stands up and reads an essay he wrote on how white people are great and of course the book concludes with the boy proclaiming "I'm White, and that's Alright!"

I think it will be a top seller on Amazon once I find a publisher.

I have tuned out FOX for the past two days, hardly watching or reading any political/news crap at all, and I'm already feeling better.

I hoed in the garden today for about 6 hours total -- with drink breaks every hour or so. It's been a while since I've worked this hard. I noticed my cap bill had white salt stains from all the sweat. And my T-shirts get crusty. It's been quite a while since I've worked like this.

And it feels great. I've got one good knee now, and that has made quite a difference.

And during all that, I figure I drank close to 3 quarts of Gatorade/tea, and my piss was still pretty strong. I was sweating like a lunatic.

122 I know sleep deprivation makes my depression worse, but I was close to a meltdown today. Bat flying around the house late last night before disappearing, no response from the exterminator this morning, family gathering for lunch at my in-laws.... and since it was the night after Pooky's EMDR therapy, he tried to strangle me in his sleep. Again. (I have tried to sleep on the couch, it doesn't work, and if I can shake Pooky awake, it usually clears the nightmares completely.) For some reason, my therapist is not surprised that I dread going to bed.

But because of WD's article and having nothing better to do, I'm heading upstairs. Sleep tight, you Morons.

apparently that was racist, and now members of the body are looking to formally have me removed from the board.

the look on the faces of everyone involved when i cite USC 18 sec. 242, conspiracy, etc in my civil lawsuit against them, and when they find out i have filed a criminal complaint with the DOJ will be priceless.

Since intermittent fasting has become a thing in my life, salt water is part of the routine at points during the day.

When I worked outside a lot in extreme temps I would make my own "Gatorade", as commercial products are overpriced and don't really follow accepted medical practices. (For example "sugar free" is not going to work. A certain amount of glucose is necessary)

Morton's Lite Salt is 50/50 potassium and sodium. That, and a dilute or weak KoolAid (Rite Aid for you Jonestown folks) solution and you've a very rehydration formula. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are basically on a continuum. Stay hydrated!

160 I have a sweet story about our experience in Tyler.

A long, long time ago, hubby and I were stranded with a torn fan belt about 6 miles outside Tyler, in an old '56 Chevy that we were driving home. Hot! We found a little house along the interstate and walked to a very sweet elderly black lady's home, who was initially very hesitant to let both of us in, as we probably looked dodgy coming from the Interstate. We also had our little dog with us. She was having her card party ladies over that day.

So I said I totally understood, and sat outside on her step while she let my husband in to call her nephews, who just happened to have a garage in Tyler. They towed us into Tyler (with us sitting in the front seat of the Chevy) downtown to their garage, and they just happened to have a fan belt for the old '56, which was almost a miracle. Fixed it right up, and we were on our way.

Anyway, while we were waiting, she called us and apologized profusely for appearing rude for not letting both of us in, and offered to bring us down some sandwiches or something to eat, which was so very kind.

After we got to talking, we decided we'd keep in touch, and she wanted to make sure we got home ok. She gave us her address, and I wrote her as soon we got home. She wrote back, and we did correspond for a while before we assumed she passed away.

So if everyone is as nice as Ruby was those many years ago, you're in a good place! Good luck to you and your family on your exciting move!

From way back, it's always been known as a Doctor's and Lawyers's town. All kinds of jobs like any city, of course. City is about 100,000, but it's known for having medical facilities for about 300,000 people, since it serves as the main medical center for all of the surrounding counties. A big Junior College and a branch of UT, both with roughly 9,000 students.

181 >>You build a coalition by working with people who, if you're lucky, you will agree with 80% of the time. You can compromise on the 20%, or work with other folks on that, but schisms in the name of ideological purity are a sure way to hand the country over to the commies.


The hard part is drilling down to find what the core values are.
No other way to a real and honest compromise.

At the most basic levels does this guy believe in any sort of natural rights of the individual or something more barbaric such as might makes right and everything flows from there? What is their lowest common denominator and is compatible with yours?



Two wolves and a sheep deciding what is for dinner. Most people think they are a wolf. That is why most new laws create more binds.

Conversely some might think that most new laws should strip away old laws and release the binds.

That is why at best most 'compromise' should be doing nothing.

I have to wonder, seeing how so much of the accepted modern wisdom du jour is shown to be bass ackwards.

I think I know why salt tablets got discontinued for the most part. I remember as a teen my dad believed in them, and since I rode my bike everywhere he gave me some so I wouldn't get dehydrated. I had taken them after eating with no problems, but once I was riding and I swallowed one on an empty stomach - 5 minutes later I felt just like someone had punched me in the stomach, hard! I almost wrecked my bike, it hit me so hard, and I had to find a shady spot to lay down for about 20 minutes before I could move again. No more salt tablets for me after that!

215 ETA Update on moving to Tyler. They countered and we accepted. About 7 grand more than I was hoping the counter offer would be, but I wasn't going to quibble as accepting means they will cancel the open house they had scheduled for this weekend. So, unless something goes wrong (barring something like a bad inspection, there are 2 things that are possible but not probable) we're Texas bound.

--------------------------------

Congrats on the house!

I'm surprised, though, that they cancelled the open house. One thing I learned when we were looking for a house is that the purpose of an open house is only partly to sell the house. The realtor also uses it to drum up interest for other properties they're selling.

We actually went to an open house where the realtor told us it had already been sold.

249 So, wait, they have to call in and get permission first?

We'll see. Bottom line seems to be that they are only going to use tear gas for protection of life, not for crowd control.

To the extent that there is centralized control of Antifa, I'd tell the ones in Seattle to hold back - in a few days you'll have a bunch of cities also banning gas if things look OK in Seattle.

Then lower the boom in a coordinated fashion once a critical mass of cities have banned gas.

Saw this in the military. They would limit the Rules of Engagement to the point where it was all, or nothing.

Beirut, 83. Marines on Guard could not even LOAD THEIR FUCKING WEAPONS.

Why? Two Lebanese Armed forces guys, a few weeks before, had been out jogging along our perimeter. They were ordered to halt, but didn't understand English, so they jack rabbited, just as a Marine fired a warning shot.

One in a million shot, hit BOTH of them in the legs, with ONE shot.

But due to that, the Suits (not military, but State Dept.) ordered us to not even load our weapons, until we were under fire.

So, when the Terrorists drove a dump truck full of explosives through the gate? Marine there could not stop them in time.

Cops are there to protect criminals from society. Part of the compact we have in civillization is that the powers that be are going to correct wrongs instead of the victims or victims familiies seeking retribution for wrongs.

My theory was that he was following protocol exactly, and knew how to kill him within protocol, not because he was black, but because there was some shady shit going on in that bar that they were both involved in, and he was afraid Mr Floyd was about to blow it all up.

But maybe he was just an ass who was not going to give any quarter because he was being filmed.

301 Minneapolis city council also passed "duty to report" and "duty to intervene" regarding excessive force.

Meaning, if you see your partner or another officer doing anything questionable, then you need to call it into dispatch then and there on scene, and forcibly stop them if they won't stop themselves.

Failure to do either results in the bystander cop being equally liable for any disciplinary or criminal charges as the "out of control" officer.

Now, again, unintended consequences, but I can imagine those "duties" turning lots of junior cops into snitches, and making Internal Affairs adjudicate a whole bunch of minor, petty complaints.

327 So, tomorrow's Million Person March On DC Because Trump Mumble Mumble George Floyd!!! promises to be very interesting.

We know the "news" networks are working with AntiFa and the Democrat Party to stage this thing. I predict enormous damage to public monuments, a very large crowd being whipped into a frenzy to charge the White House, and at least one very carefully set up attack on a federal agent or national guardsmen that results in one or more dead rioter caught very much on camera.

This thing stopped being about George Floyd 10 minutes after he died. It is all about painting Trump as a dictator.

Place your bets and say your prayers. It will be extraordinarily ugly tomorrow. We are approaching the Dems' Endgame for 2020.

328 When I worked outside a lot in extreme temps I would make my own "Gatorade", as commercial products are overpriced and don't really follow accepted medical practices. (For example "sugar free" is not going to work. A certain amount of glucose is necessary)

Morton's Lite Salt is 50/50 potassium and sodium. That, and a dilute or weak KoolAid (Rite Aid for you Jonestown folks) solution and you've a very rehydration formula. Heat exhaustion and heat stroke are basically on a continuum. Stay hydrated!

338 @315: "I want accountability but I can see this not working well."

Personally, I think micromanagement of departmental policy by the city council is a terrible way to begin reforming things.

They should blow up the collective bargaining agreement with the union, and start by getting rid of procedures that allow bad cops to rack up dozens of complaints, yet keep working like nothing ever happened.

It sounds like most complaints are seen as meaningless nuisances. Maybe they need to learn how to dismiss the obvious bullshit, and take serious complaints more seriously with a three strikes mentality.

But forcing cops jump through even more hoops will only make the union less willing to play ball on bigger issues.

357 Gatorade was said to win football games in Florida, AOP.

I doubt it is the same formula today, as I recall in the 70s it didn't taste particularly good. Now they make a bazillion versions and flavors, but it seems to me they removed most if not all of the potassium. There is a formula or ratio of electrolytes and glucose that allows for staying hydrated.

Salt, potassium, sugar. Baking soda in a pinch is also useful. But as an actual rehydration beverage, "sugar free" won't work. Glucose is necessary to carry the salts into the bloodstream or somesuch.

Marketing versus actual utility and science, seems to me.

376 I like both Owens and Kirk. Hannity grates on me and I can't watch him, but I recognize that a lot of people do like him and get information from him that they don't get elsewhere. I am admirer of Tucker Carlson because I think he's one of the bravest voices out there and he easily could have chosen the easy route and become another conservative-lite voice, like his former friends Jonah Goldberg and Bill Kristol. I think that's true of Mark Steyn as well - he is probably a difficult person to work with but he's been canned from a lot of cushy gigs because he writes what he thinks.

A few here go ballistic whenever Tucker criticizes Trump. I don't always agree with the criticism but jeez, people, it's not like there are so many conservative voices out there in the media that we can toss Carlson overboard, just because he doesn't praise everything Trump does.

398 My mom actually said tonight she's thinking about getting a gun. We have three in the house, two 9mm and a .380, but I'm thinking a .22 would be good for her. I am definitely going to want her to go to the range and practice, and I think a .22 would freak her out less.

If there's a change of venue motion, it will be granted, imo. And they're gonna move the trials (if any) as far as possible from the Twin Cities.

I just chose Edina to illustrate that the results of the trial/trials is not a foregone conclusion.

As a prosecutor for 37 years, I wouldn't like the order of battle very much at the moment-- there are some ominous issues for the state, i.e., the cause of death.

I doubt there will be a change of venue. Chauvin is too notorious. There's literally no where he can go in the state where a potential jury pool wouldn't be influenced by what has become a national crisis.

423 I read a piece earlier today about the 2 out of the 4 arrested cops who are going to hang Chauvin. They were both new on the force, being trained by him, and it might have only been their 3rd day on the job. They're now saying (and apparently will testify) that they knew he was doing something really bad and that they tried to tell him to stop, but he ignored them, and they couldn't do anything because he had seniority and they were so new.

Legally, what that means is that 2 of the cops on the scene are going to testify that Chauvin knew he was killing Floyd, because they told him. No matter what actually happened, this testimony is probably enough to bump his charges up to Murder 1 now, and his conviction is a lock.

as far as the 2 who are trying to save their asses, I don't really think a jury is going to be too impressed by their claim that "yeah, we're cops, and yeah, we knew a man was being killed in front of our eyes, but he was our boss so we just sat there and watched."

This kind of split, getting all of the defendants to testify against each other, is a Prosecutors dream come true.

I have killed two steers with a .22 pistol. One was just over 1,000 lbs. one in the low 900 lbs. zone.

One shot each, center skull, on a line about equidistant between the eyes and ears.

They hit the floor of the butcher's first cutting station as if they'd been hit by lightning itself.

For the record. A 900 lb. steer's frontal skull plate is a much heavier cranial bone than you might otherwise imagine.

No, of course. A .22 LR isn't the medicine to prescribe for a charging PCP boosted specimen of the subspecies "thug".

Unless you can put one right between the blinkers, mid-stride.

Then he's just another steer on the butcher's floor.

They likely have known each other for years. They both worked security at the same bar/nightclub. The guess is that the nightclub they BOTH worked at was a front for one of the "alphabet" agencies of the US Government, and was actually passing counterfeit money to track some of their "guests".
The bar had been closed, and George needed money, and he knew where there was cash (counterfeit) and took some. Chauvin was the "enforcer" for the operation, and was sent out to clean up Floyd.
Floyd originally didn't resist arrest when they stopped him, but really got upset when he saw Chauvin show up, and was NOT going to get in Chauvin's car.

I know, but I have a strange feeling about Minneapolis politics right now. The racial demographics of the state, and metro area in particular, means any change of venue significantly alters the character of the jury. Maybe I'm being uncharitable to the judges of Hennepin Country, but there's gonna be massive public pressure to keep the trial here, and I'd be very surprised if they didn't.

And I should add - the fact that they're going to testify that they knew something real bad was happening at the time is all it is going to take to hang (figure of speech) all 4 of them. Their better play would have been for all 4 to claim that they thought it was a legal hold and they had no idea Floyd was in trouble. But they didn't have the nerve needed to brazen it out. And that might have failed to, but at least it would have given them a slim chance.

No.
And DC Mayor Bowser wants a spectacle and see the city burned.

It's not just another city, it is the Capital. She is behaving in a totally seditious manner, reminiscent of the Copperhead Democrats of the Civil War days.

The "march" tomorrow will be lucky to have 100K, but the Media will have a lot of close shots and insist that it's a million. Still enough to damage a lot of the city, monuments, etc., especially if they bring out a lot of local talent after the sun goes down.

The bar had been closed, and George needed money, and he knew where there was cash (counterfeit) and took some. Chauvin was the "enforcer" for the operation, and was sent out to clean up Floyd.
Floyd originally didn't resist arrest when they stopped him, but really got upset when he saw Chauvin show up, and was NOT going to get in Chauvin's car.

I have killed two steers with a .22 pistol. One was just over 1,000 lbs. one in the low 900 lbs. zone.

One shot each, center skull, on a line about equidistant between the eyes and ears.




Jim

When we were kids, 4 boys always hungry and growing, the folks would raise a steer and then have it butchered and wrapped locally.

There are many advantages, including lower cost and knowing where your beef came from. Also, you get the cuts the way you want them. 2 inch thick T-Bones? Dad liked his steak.

A few times, I would go with dad and mom and help wrap the cuts as the butcher delivered them.

The butcher used a single shot .22 rifle, behind the ear.

I asked him once, have you ever had to shoot a second shot?

He didn't hesitate, and said, "not in my 30 years of being a butcher, but I suppose there could be a day when I miss."

I'll never forget that, how deadpanned he delivered that line.

Maybe - except since the statement today was in public, the Prosecutor can now ask them about it at trial and say "Why did you change your story? How many different stories do you have?" And the Jury was going to hear it.

I'd say the statements made today were a fatal mistake for all 4 of them.

by the way - in a case I'm still following, but no one else is interested in anymore, the Arbery case in Georgia had its first evidentiary hearing a couple days ago. It was an absolute train wreck for the Defendants; the McMichaels are now in just as much trouble as Chauvin is. They're toast.

No defendant is required to testify. Charging all four officers could be a mistake - uncharged the officers could be subpoenaed; charged none of them can. All you have is the medical evidence and the testimony of the locals, many of whom may have a history where their veracity may be impeached.

516 Well that was kind of fun.

I stopped at a Biergarten that sells craft beer on the way home and was smoking a cigarette when some younger hipsters solicited my input on the merits of communism.

Rather than refute them, I instead tried a different tactic. I agreed with them that communism was the best form of government, noting that it would obviously be the most intelligent form of government because white males had invented it in its modern form. I noted that highly intelligent white Russian males had created the perfect system and that with a really powerful central government that we could easily control women and minority groups, as it should be.

I ranted on that democracy was bullshit, that it allowed women and minority groups to weigh in and that was the main problem with the west.

I did all of it with a very even tone and a deadpan expression.

They stared at me incredulously. Then one of them said "Well that a not really right" .

I said "sure it is, looked at the most efficient communist countries, like China. They keep women in their appropriate place and they keep their government racially pure. They don't put them in leadership. It's the best system. I'm with you guys."

Then they actually started arguing against it and I said they sounded like a bunch of Fox News watchers and they got all agitated and walked off.

cases with this much notoriety are not like normal cases at all. Every juror is going to know that their name and address will be leaked if they vote the "wrong way", and howling mobs will be on their doorstep that night.

With Chauvin, all the Prosecutor is going to have to do is walk up to the front of the courtroom, look at the jury, and say 'Hey, This Guy!!! (points to Chauvin) Amiright???" The Prosecution rests. "

On the other hand, picked up some supplies at a local 2nd Amendment Dispensary today, and the lines were out the door. One line to get in the store, because the pretense of social distancing is still in effect for the law abiding, and a much longer line to wait for your paperwork to be completed and filed online.

Agreed. When I was a younger man I used the 40mm, but as I got older, and the rheumatism set in, I had to down grade to the 25mm.

It has been twenty years since I was in a state court for a felony criminal trial, and it was not Minnesota. That said, I do not know about overcharging, I do know that unless he can get an officer to turn state's evidence none of them can be compelled - as defendants - to testify. Without any officer testimony Ellison has video evidence (easily disputed), medical evidence, and testimony from local eyewitnesses - who may already have a court record making them easily impeached.

Ellison is gambling on a cop turning; while at the same time the cops' best defense is to stick together. Based on what little I know, here is my analysis.

595 The military move in my novel involves the USAF, Christine McVie's "Got a Hold On Me," and a lot of sadness.
Posted by: logprof at June 06, 2020 01:05 AM (oZuI0)

I'm not AF, but have used AF and Army resources for PCS.

Generally the military does their musical chair PCS during summer months. Most recruits come in after HS is out, initial tour is fixed number of years, so PCS cycles for most follows when school break. Sidebar - had a SGT who was on an odd cycle, most of his career his just missed his new units major deployments because he showed a bit late for the 'cycle'. He'd be on Rear Detachment. Learned a lot from him about these cycles.

Anything involving moves involves PCS Orders (JTR governs) which list entitlements and terms. A lot of shtuff you cannot ship or don't dare.
One thing that never varies - the 'movers' WILL steal shit and bust things and deny any knowledge of it. Used to be a complaint would be filed with JAG. But they streamlined that maybe about ten years ago into an on-line complaint form.

Micheal Baden didn't do an independent autopsy on Floyd. Micheal Baden previously bloviated that Brown (Ferguson victim) was shot in the back (BULLSHIT!), & that OJ was innocent (BULLSHIT!).

The actual autopsy on Floyd stated that Floyd's death resulted from hypertension (going from memory) & other causes as well.

As a prosecutor, this would scare the living SHIT out of me! Doesn't mean it's insurmountable, but I hate the talk about what an easy & trifling assignment the prosecutor in MN has!

Do u see my sum of all fears? If the cause of death is in serious dispute by medical experts, then the prosecutor has a threshold issue that would choke Mister Ed & Secretariat both.

I have a shit ton of meat - we just bought half a cow. I also have an upright freezer that will fit through the door of the RV. The plan is to put the freezer between the bench seats of the RV whee the table is, and fill it up. Every 4-5 hours we'll fire up the genny, you can do that while driving, and run the freezer for an hour or so. At night we'll be plugged in at a KOA or similar. The meat should arrive just fine.

Of course you're right technically. Our biggest difference of opinion is that I don't think it's even slightly possible for Chauvin to get what used to be called a "Fair Trial" in Minnesota today. This country has already changed too much for that to happen.

and in a time when John Roberts can just write off the 1st Amendment like it was nothing, I don't see any higher courts coming to Chauvin's rescue. He's a political hot potato that everyone is going to want to have out of the way as soon as possible.

616 Well, finished my little welding project today. My stock of 7018AC rod was getting low, so I tried some other shit I had lying around. Found some unmarked 5/32 electrodes in a plastic bag that worked great. Easy to strike and hold an arc, and good hole-filling properties, too. Don't know what they are, but would definitely buy more.

Picked up my finished metal rack, and one of the feet fell off. No matter. I trundled back to where I planned to put it, and wrestled it into place anyway. Then slipped the loose foot under its leg. It's not going anywhere. Already have some stuff on it.

And today I drove a '63 Studebaker Lark for its last mile. Well, just shy of 4 miles in fact, but the last mile is the last mile, right? It drove just fine, too. Plenty of power (for a six), light easy steering, manual transmission shifted just fine. But roof rusty, floor rusty, fenders rusty, windshield cracked, headliner mouse-eaten, and the windows stuck? It's day is done; the sun of the parts are worth more than the whole. It will become an organ donor to keep several other vehicles alive. I did try selling it as a whole car last year, and had zero interest.

I'm not a lawyer, but I do admire this part:

"It is incumbent on the courts to ensure decisions are made according to the rule of law, not hysteria. Here, in addition to entering an order whose validity is highly suspect, the Court of Appeals majority took the extraordinary step of directing the trial court to take immediate action despite the fact that an application for leave had already been filed in our Court."

It is ridiculous to claim that he just dropped dead of other things. He died because a bad cop knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. Whether he had a nonlethal level of several drugs (and the levels were very nonlethal) and even if he had hypertension... hell even if he would have dropped dead naturally a minute after the time he actually died, he was still killed by Chauvin.

This is true even though he was not a good guy.

I've been through Love Field and seen that statue many times, it's a very good one. The problem comes from two things; first, Dallas proper, where Love Field is, is a majority-minority city now. Most of the anglos have moved out to the suburbs.
Second, this statue wasn't of a generic ranger, it was of one Specific Ranger, and some leftist looked up his history and found that he was involved in something that didn't play well to modern audiences. So they demanded that they take down the statue of HIM.

They shouldn't have done anything at all, but now they should at least replace it with a generic Texas Ranger. But I doubt they have the guts to do that.

Boy, is that ever the truth.
This Floyd business is the Maoist Left's "Reichstag Fire."

"On February 27, 1933, the German parliament (Reichstag)
building burned down. The Nazi leadership and its coalition partners
used the fire toclaimthat Communists were planning a violent uprising.
They claimed that emergency legislation was needed to prevent this. The
resulting act, commonly known as the Reichstag Fire Decree, abolished a
number of constitutional protections and paved the way for Nazi
dictatorship." [from the Holocaust Encyclopedia, online]

I don't know if an upright freezer will perform properly in a moving vehicle. It should, but I would not want to count on it. Also, an object that large and heavy could become a deadly projectile in the event of a crash, or even a panic stop.

I would take USNtakim's advice, and put the meat, along with cakes of dry ice, in a few coolers in the bed of the pickup. Most any decent-sized town will have at least one supermarket with a dry ice sales cooler.

She will probably have fun. Suggestion: let her start by shooting a .22 rifle. Zero recoil, and she can punch some nice holes in paper. Then let her try a .22 revolver. A .22 automatic pistol can be troublesome. I was shooting a friend's plastic .22 pistol, and it stovepiped several rounds. Apparently I was "limp-wristing" it, which meant the recoil energy went into moving the pistol around in my hand, instead of making the slide fully extract the spent cartridge. A revolver will be less likely to cause frustration.

646 Third the suggestion for dry ice, and emphasize USNtakim's point about adequate ventilation, and AOP's suggestion to keep it in the pickup bed.

It's far colder than regular ice, and will last a very long time if you have good coolers.

With respect to AOP's point about a freezer potentially becoming a deadly projectile, there's a famous story here about a bush pilot who was flying a piece of heavy equipment into a remote village. He hit the landing strip, braked, and heard the equipment rip loose and start sliding through the plane toward the back of his head.

Fortunately the landing strip was ice at that time of year, so the pilot thought fast and spun the plane around so it was going down the landing strip backward.

The machinery went out the back of the plane, tearing off the tail, rather than out the front, squashing the pilot like a bug.

659 I heard about the Texas Ranger statue at Love Field.
I was raised in the Dallas area. It seems to me people are really having to reach to find something to take out their, I'll be nice here, "feelings" on. The Texas Rangers have been made up of all races and have served the state with honor. They deserve better. And Dallas should hold their heads down in shame. I guess next on their list will be Big Tex.

664 Well, my run and coke has been consumed, and I really don't want another one. More bird encounters today. I was putting tools away about 6:00 P.M., and I heard some faint "barking" sounds. Neighbor's dog, maybe? It got louder, and suddenly a big skein of Canada Geese flew over my place, maybe 40 of them, all honking away. Got real loud for a few seconds.

So, I clean up, put the dog in the truck, drive to town for groceries and mail. Come back, and there is a pair of mallard ducks scoping out a nesting site in my caragana hedge. I turn in the drive, and that spooks them into flight, but they only go about 20 yards, and land in the grass in the yard. I let Pogo out of the truck, and she puts the run on them, and off they go.

I don't mind ducks, but nesting in my hedge would not be smart for them. My dog, or the neighbors' dog, or foxes would get them, or the eggs, or the ducklings. Better they nest elsewhere.

not if i have no more fucks to give.

as at the beginning of the thread, i have an "outrage" mob after me locally.

they are sure they have me, because "group think".

but they aren't as smart as they think they are.

i am currently drawing them into a "fire sack" of their own making by inaction.

668 Thanks qdpsteve. In my own way I borrowed trouble by bursting out in frustration to someone I knew, wouldn't understand why.

Sorry to hear about your frustration today, ShopGirl. We especially want people close to us to share our values and the discord can make us miserable.

As for the statue it seems there should be a lot of places that would like to give it a new home. In public, not a museum.
Posted by: AmericanKestrel at June 06, 2020 01:53 AM (IDhUW)

Wow, so right about the "people close to us". And glad that you agree that the new place *should be in public, not a museum.
When I was a little girl, my naturalized-citizen, America-loving Dad used to read statue inscriptions to me, wherever we might find them, and we'd both take a moment to observe in awe, what came before.

670 I may be a Canadian but I read "Texas Ranger", the life of Frank Hamer (portrayed by Costner in The Highwaymen), Texas has a very wild history and those Rangers were good guys, heroes, Hamer fought hard against lynching, I think more than once he ran and hid in the brush and swamps at night with a black prisoner in tow, pursued by lynch mobs. There were a lot of gunfights along the border because the Mexican banditos crossing were always armed and always opened fire. That's where the revisionists find their fodder, the Rangers had to shoot first and stacked up a lot of bodies. Still, they have an honorable history, definitely good guys.

679 Drew Brees, like a good little parrot, spoke of the "black community" and the "white community."
But he says nothing about the "American community."

Now, the flag and the anthem are symbols of the American community to which all of the smaller communities (supposedly) belong.

Once you diss the flag, once you declare you are not part of the American community, I would like to know why I should give a damn about you.

718 Morning!

We went to a local bar/ restaurant for lunch yesterday.
They have a large outside eating area. They had also put up a big tent for evenings and weekends.

No masks on the waitresses. Tables were properly social distanced so that Governor Spanky won't get upset. All food served were on plastic disposable plates and glasses. Mother Gaia was crying, but no on was listening.
Food, beer, life almost seem normal again.

Meanwhile the town of 40,000 next to me had the 2nd of 3 protests. From the pictures it appears it's mostly 20ish women that seemed concerned.
Of course the 3 block downtown was shutdown after many store just reopening on Monday. Many of the stores boarded up too, because you can't trust peaceful.

One more protest today. They postponed the farmers market because of it too.

NO MONEY FOR YOU!!

That's interesting, sounds good. I dust the top crust with cinnamon and sugar, so it's not an intense cinnamon flavor.

Saw Candice Owen tore into that.

This was melted and mixed into the rhubarb. IIRC, it was more of a cobbler the way she did it normally.

The Woman was magic. You could give her a pair of 10 year old boots. She'd stare at them for a few minutes, get her tub of bacon grease out of the fridge, and cook them without ever measuring a darn thing- and it would be the best meal you ever had.

Miss Dutchess woke me up to say she needed to go out. I got dressed, took her outside and put her in her pen. I looked at my watch, which said it was 3:30, not 5:30 like I thought. Decided to stay up.

Both of my grandma's were awesome with food. I hope they knew how much we kids appreciated them. Their recipes have lived on, that's for sure

That is the one problem. Mammaw never wrote anything down. She knew it all by heart. Mom tried to get some of the recipes written, but there are a few I would like:

-I have no idea how she made scalloped potatoes. Potatoes obviously, but she used cheez whiz, regular cheese and black magic and made something of wonder.

-I have never, ever been able to figure out how she seasoned green beans. There is bacon, some onion, and something else.

-Fried sweet corn. Butter, sugar, salt. That was it (I watched.) Never have been able to get it right.

I get little info from the media here. I find our smart military blog has the best and most timely info.

755 No curiosity from the MFM about BLM and who runs the organization. Now that so many companies are giving them big bucks, (hoping to eaten last) where is it going. I'm sure they are the purest of organizations, no dipping of some fingers into the honey pot. Yeah, and I've got a cheap condo to sell you in Manhattan.
