The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

The great nations of the world would do well to remember that in the modern age even their own fates are not wholly in their hands. Peace demands the united efforts of us all. Who can foresee what spark might ignite the fuse? It is not only the small and the weak who must scrupulously observe their obligations to the United Nations and to each other. Unless the smaller nations are accorded their proper voice in the settlement of the world's problems, unless the equality which Africa and Asia have struggled to attain is reflected in expanded membership in the institutions which make up the United Nations, confidence will come just that much harder. Unless the rights of the least of men are as assiduously protected as those of the greatest, the seeds of confidence will fall on barren soil.Emperor Haile Selassie


Quote II

"“What I see is if the election goes to Biden then there is a good chance that the Democrats will then control all two branches of Congress and the White House in the kinds of things that they are proposing, that can well mean in the point of no return.”Thomas Sowell


Quote III

The Jews survived the Blood Libel. But America may not survive the American Libel. While the first Libel led to the death of many Jews, the present Libel may lead to the death of a civilization. Indeed, the least oppressive ever created.” Dennis Prager

Meet Karen the Educator. She's lucky her victim didn't fix her nose for her.

Lean on Me - Bill Withers Our new national anthem?


Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won't let show

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on
I just might have a problem that you'll understand
We all need somebody to lean on

Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on

You just call on me brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on


Our national anthem a pickup song? FFS.

Here is a novel idea. You don't need the government to confiscate your income and/or wealth. You can freely give it all to the government on your own.


A group of 83 of the world’s richest people have called on governments to permanently increase taxes on them and other members of the wealthy elite to help pay for the economic recovery from the Covid-19 crisis.

The super-rich members, including Ben and Jerry’s ice cream co-founder Jerry Greenfield and Disney heir Abigail Disney, called on “our governments to raise taxes on people like us. Immediately. Substantially. Permanently”.

On the other hand, give it to them...Hard

Chicago's mayor continues to:
[ ] A. Subject herself to ridicule
[ ] B. Commits cultural appropriation
[X] C. All of the above.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot left many “speechless” with a bizarre announcement that she was deploying a “cowboy” to get an accurate count for the U.S. Census.

The Democrat mayor left many scratching their heads after a video message that defied the left’s politically correct talking points, as she compared herself Monday to the mayor of Gotham City in Batman and sent out the “Census Cowboy” to communities in an effort to get residents to fill out their 2020 Census forms.


I don't think this is what Thin Lizzy had in mind. But.......That's just me.

Your lost luggage? No, it didn't end up in some black hole. (Don Lemon jokes are not off limits.) It probably ended up in Scottsboro, Alabama.

Imagine this: An airline loses your checked bag. After an extensive search, customer support comes up empty-handed. They compensate you and life goes on.

But life goes on for your suitcase, too. Written off as “unclaimed,” it sits in a musty collection depot for 3 months. Eventually, the airline sells it — along with hundreds of other lost suitcases and cargo shipments — to a private company, sight unseen.

The new owner cracks the lock, sifts through your former possessions, and marks them for sale.

A few days later, a retired mechanic named Charlie buys your grandfather’s watch for $150. A 19-year-old line cook acquires your Beats headphones. And a nurse from Florida becomes the proud new owner of the scarf your mom knitted you for Christmas.

This is the bizarre secondary market for lost luggage.

Yes, I'm breaking the cardinal sin of 'No Math On The ONT'. But does this government provided number (suspect to begin with) warrant the shut down of all aspects of our society?

"The July 10 update is based on data received by CDC through June 29, 2020″; the 0.65% is the probability of dying once infected. As always, take these with a grain of salt. Among other things,

Many uncertainties remain. For example, current estimates of Infection Fatality Ratios do not account for time-varying changes in hospital capacity (e.g., in bed capacity, ventilator capacity, or workforce capacity) or for differences in rates of underlying health conditions that may contribute to a higher frequency of severe illness in congregate and community settings. A nursing home, for example, may have a high incidence of infection (due to close contacts among many individuals) and severe disease (due to a high rate of underlying conditions) that does not reflect the frequency or severity of disease in the broader population of older adults.

Fishermen have a bad reputation when it comes to "telling the truth". This is one fish story captured for all to see.

The great white shark circling the fishing boat
The result was breathtaking, with footage showing the beast’s jaw wide open and baring its razor-sharp teeth.

“There was a couple of times it got too close, I tried to give him a poke with the GoPro and couldn't budge him at all so yeah, very heavy, very strong,” Lee said.

The shark’s persistent attacks forced the brothers to pull up their anchor and sail away, but the remnants of the rampage were there for all to see.

If we stop basic human nature. We can free hospital beds for victims of the Kung flu.

South African President Cyril Ramaphosa says the country will immediately return to a ban on the sale of alcohol to reduce the volume of trauma patients so that hospitals have more beds to treat COVID-19 patients.

Confronted by surging hospitalizations due to the coronavirus, South Africa is also reinstating a night curfew to reduce traffic accidents and made it mandatory for all residents to wear face masks when in public.

Ramaphosa said that top health officials warn of impending shortages of hospital beds and medical oxygen as South Africa reaches a peak of COVID-19 cases, expected between the end of July and September.

Oblivious and a Genius Award Winner.

A woman was too busy getting 'stoned' in a Derbyshire street to notice the police approaching to arrest her

A woman who was 'too busy getting stoned' on drugs and playing on her phone failed to notice police were closing in to arrest her.

Police were out on patrol in School Street, Church Gresley, when they spotted the woman and what she was up to. But she had not seen them even though officers had been watching her for a while, said a spokesman.

She was so oblivious she carried on taking cannabis, they said, even as they approached. She was arrested and the drugs seized.

49 NaCly Dog: I think Revelation is an eternal indictment of universalist tyranny, which John leveled against Nero's Rome, and which is becoming relevant again today because, unfortunately, human nature doesn't change.

Theologically, I expect that is why G-d approved it and why the Latin Church accepted it as canon. G-d wanted something that would warn Rome's subjects and would remain a warning for subjects of other, later empires - even nominally Christian empires.

93 63, Bourbon Chicken,
That is normal as it allows a visual check of the chamber to see if a cartridge is there.

It is better to simply keep the chamber loaded all of the time and treat the firearm that way if it is a self defense firearm than to rely on load chamber indicators. The mechanical pin type loaded chamber indicators that you can feel in the dark are slightly more useful than the small window to the chamber.

Tom Givens, noted firearms trainer, keeps up with his trainees and their statistics and had one die because they did not have the chamber loaded when a violent assault occurred. I think he graded that one as a forfeit because that was not the way the person was trained.

Next time, try The High Road forums or Weasel's Sunday evening gun thread at the AOS for advice.

Poll: Sessions, Tuberville tied in Alabama First, Second Congressional Districts

The survey, conducted May 21-27 with 705 likely GOP voters via live phone calls and of only the First and Second Congressional District, the southwestern and southeastern portions of the state respectively, shows a statistical dead heat.

The poll conducted by Public Insight Research showed both Sessions and Tuberville earning 41.99% of the vote and 16% undecided on the ballot test portion of the survey. When broken down by each congressional district, Sessions leads Tuberville 45.2% to 39.6% in the First Congressional District, while Tuberville has a 44.4% to 38.75% in the Second Congressional District.

A release from the AFA that accompanied the survey says the poll validates the findings of an internal poll released by the Sessions campaign earlier in the week, showing a six-point gap statewide between Sessions and Tuberville for the July 14 contest.

AFA also predicts "extremely low turnout" for the runoff, which it says could be to Sessions' advantage.

'Underdog' Jeff Sessions surges in campaign poll, and 7 in 10 ignore Trump endorsement of foe

by Paul Bedard, Washington Secrets Columnist

With a month left before Alabama Republicans pick a Senate candidate in a rare runoff, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions's aggressive campaign has put him on a "path" to take back his old seat, according to an internal poll.

...

Some outsiders believe that Trump's continued criticism will keep Sessions from winning the seat he had before he was named attorney general, but the survey showed that voters are getting tired of the president's taunts. It found that 69% want Trump to stop the attacks. Some 23% disagreed.

"The data suggests the voters are getting tired of Trump hurling petty insults at Jeff Sessions," said Anderson.

What's more, despite the attacks, Sessions and Tuberville have nearly identical approval ratings. Sessions is at 60%, Tuberville 61%.

...

And a key finding was that a big chunk of Alabama Republican voters believe they can vote for both Sessions and Trump. Asked, "Do you agree or disagree with the following statement? Even though President Trump is supporting Tuberville against Jeff Sessions, as a Trump supporter, I can still vote for Sessions in the primary and be completely supportive of President Trump in his reelection this fall," 79% agreed.

OTOH, EVERYONE knows exactly what she means: census fraud, followed by vote fraud.

Wyatt, always glad to see you here. Been wanting to ask a question. My experience has been that people are not very open to changing party allegiances. Basically they think the other group is either stupid or evil, and they will never change.
Here is my question for Wyatt or others: will the lack of support of police during this whole BLM fiasco by mayors etc result in any change in how police, firemen, ambulance people, shop owners, and therefore their families vote?

174 That pic up top - it was just like the glorious sunset we witnessed tonight from up the hill. Well, except for all those jutting rocks and beclouded valleys. But the sun was all red like that and it did sorta light up the clouds like that.

Sigh. Our prairie is beautiful, but far from mountains and oceans. (Actually, that's a feature not a bug.)

Speaking of bugs, a paper wasp hit me a couple of days ago, and laid down the venom hard and long. My right forearm is still swollen and sore. I can see where getting hit by a bunch of those could be fatal. Haven't been stung so hard since I was a kid. We have a longstanding truce with the lackadaisical mud daubers, but I'm declaring war on those vicious paper wasps. Chemical warfare. If some mud daubers get caught in the backdraft, well, war has collateral damages.

And now you know… another dumb story.

240 Emmie you can reliably predict the general shape of the epidemic over time, but of course the timing in different locations will vary, as will the magnitude of the peaks. The decay (right hand shoulder of the curve) is pretty much the same everywhere.

The submissiveness of much of the populace and the incompetence and arrogance of the political class and institutions might have an interesting crossroads before long. Places like CA and TX, the numbers will begin to drop off dramatically (case numbers), nothing can stop it - or hasten it, either. And schools will be closed. And all of life cancelled or closed.

How this develops could be interesting. Though the big questions are already answered.

That's pretty good company. He's got 5 Indycar titles, a Indy 500 win, and seems to be an all around good cat. Unlike the insufferable prick Lewis Hamilton, Dixon keeps his head down and races.

Truth. He sure gets under some people's skin.

Posted by: ALH at July 14, 2020 10:30 PM (WIRy8)

268 216, Sessions did not resign because McConnell wanted him there by refusing to approve anyone else for the job and Trump was worried that it would be treated as obstruction of justice by the special prosecutor if he fired Sessions or forced him to resign. It would have left that towering person of integrity, Rosenstein as operating AG so no change on the special prosecutor front.

Sessions should have told Trump his decision to recuse before he was approved by the Senate and that would have allowed Trump to pull the nomination and replace Sessions with someone else.

The truth is that much of the leadership of the Republicans on the Hill were complicit as silent partners in trying to oust Trump.

Look at the Senate and House committees for example from 2016-18--did they lift a finger to help Trump disclose what everyone should have known prior to the 2018 elections that Obama and his crew tried to overthrow the legitimately elected successor.

The thing is, the more Devin Nunes, one of the lonely few supporters of law and order on the Hill, uncovered, the more the Republican leadership hung him out to dry with Ryan okaying a phony ethics charge to sideline him for the crucial time.

There is a time and place that a reckoning with a lengthy prison sentence should be laid upon McConnell, Burr, Ryan, etc.

Sessions got a taste of his own reckoning with repudiation by electoral humiliation from his own home state voters.

276 Emmie there are enormous problems with the data - but the movements/trends of the magnitude I'm talking about won't be concealable - cannot be "masked", so to speak - even by "juicing" the data, as has been done. One issue is that there has already been resort to all the big tricks to do so - adding serology data to detected-case data, not screening out multiple-results for one individual, and with deaths, on top of the very dubious broad original definition, going back and converting some deaths to "probables" (sans any lab data of any kind).

There'll be no way to even pretend to believe things are getting worse, before long.

Jack Squat Bupkis: "Only explanation is voters love Trump."



Or that Sessions folded like a pair of deuces when there was no need
to. His spine left him and the voters noticed. I liked and backed
Sessions for years, but he went derelict when the president and the
nation needed him. His recusal was punishing. Simply one of the worst
political decisions I've ever seen. He's just not up for the job any
more.
I see your comment as wholly consistent with mine.

329 The thing is, the more Devin Nunes, one of the lonely few supporters of law and order on the Hill, uncovered, the more the Republican leadership hung him out to dry with Ryan okaying a phony ethics charge to sideline him for the crucial time.

There is a time and place that a reckoning with a lengthy prison sentence should be laid upon McConnell, Burr, Ryan, etc.


Ryan deserves top billing for the way he used the House to undermine Trump while having control of it. And sitting on his dead ass for two years before passing a dogshit GaylordCare repeal and replace bill that I can't honestly blame McStain for voting against other than the theatrical way that hellbound cocksucker enjoyed his last moment in the spotlight. When Ryan just didn't resubmit the vetoed past bills I knew the ream job was active.

Unfortunately for them, Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941. The Almanac Singers removed the album from distribution, and requested that people who bought the album return it (Communist Party USA members were specifically ordered to return the album).

Then, as Wikipedia puts it, "The Almanacs changed direction and began agitating for U.S. intervention in Europe."

650 Good evening, all.

Someone sent me a screenshot of a facebook post.

"I'm walking away from my salon, it's yours if you want it (and qualify for the lease). I would LOVE to hand it over to a new owner...."

It's clear this is someone who laboriously installed barriers, made her customers and employees mask and social distance, all that bullshit, and now Newsom shuts it back down again.

To turn the screw of absurdity, she has a "Black Lives Matter" medallion as her avatar.


Couldn't she say she was making Burn Loot and Murder look good for the cameras at the next riot?

That's gotta be worth some virtue signalling points.

657 216 If Sessions really wanted to be back in the Senate, why didn't he resign from AG after he recused himself? It would have been simple to have run against Strange and won w some line like, "my life work is best representing the ppl of AL," or something. Staying where he not much more than a chair warmer seemed foolish.
Posted by: EveR at July 14, 2020 10:20 PM (ZZDMQ)

Interesting perspective.

I respect arguments from people like Rhomboid and JackStraw who supported Sessions, but the problem I have with Sessions is not how he voted in the past as a Senator, or even his recusal - although I disagreed with it. Several legal minds said that he really had no choice, and as I'm not a lawyer I can't really dispute that with any authority.

What does bother me about Sessions is what he did after he resigned. Nothing.

Even though he recused himself, he did other work as AG, and he did have a ringside seat to all the shenanigans going on with the FBI, Rosenstein, etc. etc. He saw not only the players at work, but had access to documents that we don't see. This gave him the opportunity to have a unique perspective on what was happening to Trump, and other associates like Stone.

I understand that once recused, he had no administrative responsibility over the case. Does that mean, however, that he can't assess what he saw and see fit to call it the crock that it was once he became a private citizen? As far as I recall, all he did when he was questioned about his tenure as AG was justify his decision to recuse himself.

What, he couldn't say one word about the coup d'etat that was taking place all around him in defense of Trump?

Unless someone recalls something that I don't, I don't think he did. That, all by itself, is enough for me to be glad that he's nowhere near the halls of the Senate.

By the way, even when he was in the Senate, and fighting the good fight for legal immigration, I'm not sure that his actions did anything to move the Senate closer to his position. If he was fighting a lonely fight when he was in the senate, having him plus Tom Cotton fighting the good fight isn't going to get us closer to that result.

659 LOL. The Almanac Singers (with Pete Seeger and Woody Guthrie) put out an anti-war, anti-conscription album, "Songs For John Doe", in May, 1941.

Unfortunately for them, Germany invaded the Soviet Union in June 1941. The Almanac Singers removed the album from distribution, and requested that people who bought the album return it (Communist Party USA members were specifically ordered to return the album).

Then, as Wikipedia puts it, "The Almanacs changed direction and began agitating for U.S. intervention in Europe."

Party Line all the way.

Posted by: The ARC of History! at July 14, 2020 11:49 PM (I2/tG)

I have heard that story before. Question: in 1941, there was no such thing as an LP "album". Back then, "albums" existed, but they were like bound books of sleeves that each held on 78 RPM disc. Classical music was sold that way, often on 16" discs, too.

So was the Almanac Singers withdrawn album one of those? And did any copies of it survive?

The fill valve on some toilets has a very small orifice in it. It might have been partly clogged by some debris in the line.

I just fixed an issue I had with low flow in my shower. Turn the water on, and a pitiful trickle would dribble out of the shower head. Hot or cold, equally bad. Finally, I took the bathtub spigot off, and fitted a piece of half-inch heater hose to the copper pipe that feeds it. Put a funnel in the end of the hose, and poured six ounces of 10% hydrochloric acid down the hose. Let it soak for half an hour. Flushed it out by running the taps. Bingo! Shower has its mojo back; both hot and cold run better.

Must have been a buildup of lime in the horizontal legs of the valve casting, between the faucet housings and the cross tee in the middle.

Lots of lazy circular "arguments" spring up around this topic to explain why Trump had no options, not gonna bother with them now.

Will just add in, relevant but different point, that if Barr thinks he can restore DOJ's integrity and standing without a full review of the illegitimate and very likely rampantly criminal special counsel operation, he's making a huge mistake. Ditto for the Clinton Espionage Act scandal, and the IG report that effectively endorsed it.

And mass illegal migration, ruinous labor importation, damaging and ridiculous legal immigration, and general lawlessness in the area (including rebellion by states and cities, and audacious usurpation by the judiciary) are things everyone opposes, even before their nephew is crippled in a car accident caused by a 4-time deported illegal DUI driver (or some equivalent disaster) - but they don't oppose it enough to police the people they elect to fix it all.

Rhomboid and CH - agreed.

Rhomboid - sorry I misstated your view of Sessions. I know that around these parts there are lots of views on the guy. I definitely loved what he did as an advocate for the defense of our borders, and he made arguments that nobody else in the Senate was at the time - especially around tech and visas for foreign staff.

I think I need to do a deep dive into Game Theory if I'm going to think through how we can leverage support from our representatives by strategically losing seats to put enough fear of God into the remnant to force them to support true conservative policies.

As far as I can see, we value having a 'majority' in the House and Senate more than ensuring that lukewarm GOPe placeholders keep their biannual promises to us.

Until we sacrifice a couple of seats to send a message - even in this environment where every seat counts - we'll be held hostage to the mushy middle.

We've got a gigantic rare earth mine just sitting there. It hasn't been economic to run it since Chy-na has been dumping their production cheap, but it's there as soon as we need it.

Oddly, production prep started being ramped up almost as soon as Trump got into office.

I am about at the breaking point with this Corona shit. Quite mad, I'm getting. And maybe in both senses of the word.

I decided to take Miley to the Waffle House tonight. It was late, and she had worked her butt off in the hot in the garden. We got to the one at Ft. Inn we usually go to, but they had most of the parking lot closed off because of a sink hole. No room.

So, hell, I run up to the one in Mauldin. They were closed! The Waffle House was closed. Then I went on to the next one. It was closed as well. Came back around and finally found one open. We had to wait about 30 minutes.

And all this is due to the Corona shit.

And to top it off, I had an appointment with the rheumatologist this afternoon. I was treated like a pariah for not wearing a goddamned mask. They weren't giving them out. They begrudgingly gave me one.

And finally, I had to fire that well drilling bunch I was going on about the other day. The guy is lying son of a bitch who doesn't do what he says, and then tries to say he never said what he clearly said.

That was not the most pleasant conversation. In calling around to see if I could find someone who would finish the job and get my pump in, I learned about this crew. They have a reputation.

What they did was buy some rigs from a well drilling outfit where the owner was retiring. This guy was reputable. They left the name of this outfit on the rig, changing it only slightly.

This is basically a fraud to make one think they are the old, reputable, now (semi retired) well driller.

There is a lawsuit over this pending, turns out.

If you remember, I mentioned they got in a cussing match with each other while drilling. Well, that was tamed. Turns out the sheriff has been called on this bunch more than once when they got into an actual fist fight on some jobs. No joke.

It's my fault for going with the low bid, actually. So I'm more mad at myself really than anyone else.

Thanks, but I've got someone who will hang the pump. When he learned who I had dealt with, he had sympathy. He said he had cleaned up after them a time or two before. They bought the retiring driller's rig about two years ago. They won't last, but they are doing some damage in the process.

He said the last job he had to clean up, he discovered one of their tricks. They'll claim to put in X pump/motor and charge for it, but will put in some used worn out crap.

Again, they won't last, but it does take time for such fraudsters to get theirs (or run off somewhere else and start over).

I saw the first one which was basically just a remake of Star Wars and I enjoyed it enough. I have no emotional investment there. But I have no clue how they were able to do a trilogy of that stature by the seat of their pants. I guess they figured they could do the bare minimum, throw in shiny effects and wokeness, and still make a billion? And I guess they were right?

It seems all Star Wars is now is just fodder for some really great YouTube material.

Driveway damage? From the tree falling on it, or from his heavy vehicle breaking the pavement?

I would suggest that he show proof of liability insurance. And liability insurance might not cover his heavy truck breaking your drive, because that is not an uncommon outcome when residential driveways meet heavy trucks.

Make sure they're licensed and insured. The license has to cover the specific type of work to be done.

Seriously, in CA I have a client who hired some rogue tree trimmers for a 25 ft palm. Head guy fell 25 ft onto a driveway and disabled himself for life. It was then that my client found out that under the law HE was responsible for OSHA compliance since the tree trimmer was not licensed for this specific category of work. Of course, there was no OSHA compliance.

Client was wealthy but paid out big money to settle the case.

The thing is there was nothing to coordinate. Abrams had no plan, he just threw out his "Mystery Box" garbage and had no idea what was in the box. So Rian was left to his own devices, and decided to swerve expectations.

Two idiots with no idea on what Star Wars is supposed to be wouldn't have turned anything better out by talking together. Not saying they shouldn't have attempted, but this was one of those clusterfuck things that was likely inevitable give the people in charge.

It probably wasn't until fan reaction came in and the box office dropped that Abrams even realized there might be a problem, Rian had left whomever took over with his own unresolved garbage and now Kennedy was counting on him to somehow make the tire fire go away.

But hey, Rian still thinks he'll get his own trilogy to deconstruct, and if he does the Mouse will lose many more millions, so some good can still come of Star War's death.

What do they call those, "indemnity clauses"? Those are pretty standard, but the driveway damage thing is pretty specific. It does sound like that's a common enough problem with the guy that he has to put that in specifically.

805 Galveston construction code requires that all residential driveway aprons be at least 8" of concrete reinforced with 1/2" rebar at (IIRC) 12" spacings, minimum. Said concrete to be at least 5000 lb slump test grade.

But your sidewalk is the weak link, and I've seen entire driveways poured without so much as farm & ranch 6" spaced 1/8th in. steel fence panel as "rebar" into the forms.

When ordering concrete, always specify that the truck is to carry 2x extra pouring troughs to reach the forms you've set.

Or hire lotsa wets from the Home Depot lot, so as to shuttle the wheelbarrow relays of wet concrete to dump into the forms.

And if you're at that point, Cry Uncle, and just hire the local Concrete Guys, and pay them to get it all done for you. You'll spend what you think is more, but actually, you'll spend less.

Cause you only have to spend it once.

Amateurs tend to really F up the concrete pours, and that gets WAY expensive, fastly. Especially in the removal of mistakes phase of the project.

Just spitballing here, but residential driveways are probably not built to a standard that permits heavy tandem trucks to roll over them without some risk of damage, especially near the edges. And if the bucket truck has to put down outriggers, well there's a point load that could indent the pavement.

I hired a tree climber guy a couple or four years ago to take down a big pine that was leaning and getting worse. It was very close to my folk's house and the shop, and there was no way I was going to try it with a chain saw. Could've done a lot of damage to a lot of things depending on which way it fell.

The guy was a very short ex-Marine. Short, but muscular and stocky. He shinnied up that tree like a monkey and whacked it down piece by piece by piece. Going up, he took the side limbs off, then topped it, then took the trunk down in pieces coming back down.

Made it look easy. And he had a crew of three boys doing nothing but cleaning up all the pieces he was cutting.

The big tandem axle trucks can do a number on actual roads, too, with enough such traffic. They're building a new school right here on the outside of town (Ft. Inn), and a lot of heavy trucks have been coming in and out.

The road has been torn up pretty bad in just a few months of that. They are widening the road to handle the school traffic, and will re-pave the whole thing.

But for now, it's a patchwork of filled in potholes.

They put a landfill in around the area a couple of decades ago -- it's full now and closed, but the truck traffic destroyed the two lane road and they had to totally re-do it. Not just re-pave, but dig it up and do serious road bed redoing.

818 Got a fair bit accomplished today. #1, I did a load of laundry, and hung it on the line to dry. Sunny, and windy enough to dry it in jig time, but not so windy as to blow it off the line. perfect!

#2, I did a big mess of weed-whacking around the garage, shop, and barn. Covered most of the areas you see when you drive on the place. Looks much better.

#3, got on the riding mower, and made multiple passes over the cut-off weeds and grass, to mulch it up and scatter it. Also moves some stuff, and mowed where it sat.

#4, discovered that the aluminum sheet on the north wall of the barn had been torn loose by the wind, which pulled a lot of the nails holding it, so I went to work with a screw gun and roofing screws, and got it all tacked down again, at least as far as I can reach.

Anyway, this little nugget, if correct, might explain why it was not contained early and successfully.

Speaking of LCS, for some time I think it was the USS Independence berthed just across from BHR as she burned. A few DDGs were quickly moved, but not the LCS, far as I could tell. Though it's hard to get updated imagery showing the whole area.

Every crewmember goes through Fire Fighting School.

Every Duty day, and every General Quarters drill, you practice damage control and fire fighting.

Hell, my Electronics Technicians were Repair 8, and their own fire team. We were responsible for the superstructure (think Nerds fighting fires).

Ships have the Firemain, AND gas powered pumps in case the firemain goes out. Damage Control equipment is scattered all over the ship, in DC Lockers.

Fire suppression systems are in major danger areas, Hanger bays, Magazines, Engine Rooms.

In port, between 1/4 and 1/6th of the crew (depending on the ship) spend the night onboard on a Duty day. They provide security, and Damage control teams, and train every single duty day.

The US Navy used to PRIDE itself on two things. Two things they were the Masters of, far better than anyone else in the World.

Damage Control, and Underway Replenishment (getting supplies and fuel while underway).

864 Ok looking again top of ramp from hanger going down there is a rollup door. How effective that can be is questionable. Definitely no doors on ramps in vehicle storage or the welldeck. There is an open ramp from the hanger to the island. Could be a rollup door at the bottom of that ramp. Again rollup. Questionable. Rollup doors by nature are not solid or air tight.

i almost died in a Huey on my 30th birfday, holding a trash bag full of urine samples during my next to last chopper flight.

the last chopper flight i ever took was the next morning, when it was safe to RTB in Los Alamitos.

FTS: never again.

Instead of fear, Trump needs to change the dialogue completely.

The existing statistics fear game of "new Covid cases" is meaningless. Trump should say so and propose a new standard.

Go back to how every other epidemic or pandemic is measured, total deaths and disfigurement.

How many deaths in the entire population? And what age breakdown, or other breakdown, to identify the specific groups at risk? And do people always recuperate, or like Polio, they are damaged for life? That is all that matters, and has been ignored for some reason.

Here is one fact -

In California there are 8.9 million children aged 0 - 17. According to the CDPH, guess how many have died.
















Go ahead, guess!
















Who said Zero, you win!

The number of deaths from Covid for kids 0 - 17 in Cali. Zero.

This fact was shown on last night's Ingraham show. Laura has done as good a job as any of finding experts that know what they are talking about and telling the audience what is actually happening.

Not what Progda, and brainwashed Blue governors are telling us what to do. They're not following the cutting edge science. It's like they are in some kind of trance.

Trump has to break the press out of this trance.

Facts could work.

Anyway, the pilot offered to give a few lifts to my platoon so we water ballooned another platoon. It was just one of those things you had to do

897 Thing about Lita and Joan is, as different as they are personally and musically, they both came out of the womb as fully-fledged Rock Chicks. Simply born to do what they do. And by some weird serendipity ended up in the same band originally.

Yeah, there is a LOT of newer information from front-line medical professionals out there, that Progda completely ignores.

The Covid virus is simply not that dangerous to working America (under 65) and especially their kids. So says the science from leading professionals in the middle of it. Over and over again.

Last week, 2 substantial studies from the Henry Ford Health System and a Mt. Zion study, both in multiple thousands, showed how to treat the relatively few that get sick from Covid. Covid simply is not a major problem, other than the elderly that were murdered by Blue State governors or those that have underlying health conditions. Period.

- And more. from Lifezette.com:
Dr. Scott Atlas, the former chief of neuroradiology at Stanford University Medical Center, spoke out on Monday to explain why the spike of COVID-19 cases across the south doesn't really actually matter.

Atlas told Fox News that Americans should be hesitant in believing the way the media is portraying the spike in coronavirus cases because it "doesn't really matter how many cases there are." Instead, what really matters is "who gets the cases."

He added that the mortality rate for coronavirus is just .04% for people under age 70, a statistic that is equal to or lower than the seasonal flu. Atlas said that the number of cases is increasing only because younger people are contracting the virus on a larger scale.
"The overwhelming majority are younger, healthier people," Atlas explained. "It only matters if we cannot protect the high-risk people, which we are protecting... how do I know? Because the death rates are not going up."
As long as they get to it early, it is mostly treatable.



- And here is a Texas MD with a video that will never be seen on Progda. Another moron found it a few threads ago. It's about 9 minutes. Worth it, the Dr is pro HCQ, and says start it early when symptoms start. Made all the difference for his patients.

https://tinyurl.com/y7puvy8a

over 300 patients at his clinic, and 100% recovery.


- Dr. Steven Smith, head of the Smith Institute of Infectious Disease is another expert. He recommends a low dose of HCQ and zinc for everyone that is suspect, and those on the front line. He personally treated over 1,000 sick patients.

- There are many other studies from Italy, France, Germany, and elsewhere.

And they all support opening up society will be ok. Especially for kids in school. And healthy adults under 65 for work and activity.

And no masks.

It's time that people start to demand these relevant facts be heard loud and clear from experts who have been on the front lines from the start.

Not Dr Fauci, or Nancy Pelosi, or Chris Cuomo, or Bill Gates, or Karen.

Our nation is going into a depression. Democrats and Progda don't care. They choose to ignore the truth from the latest science from our leading professionals.

----------


As pointed out by Dr Atlas from Stanford, compare these statistics to the regular seasonal flu. Then, secondarily, look at age, underlying illness, etc. I'll bet, Skip, that these numbers you have here are consistent with Dr Atlas's statement.

And if so, another proof point that Covid is not what Progda claims it is.

Posted by: azalea city at July 15, 2020 06:08 AM (WX+x0)


Agreed that China engineered it, IMO. I've seen some reports in the last few weeks that death statistics are over-reporting Covid as the cause of death anywhere from 13 pct to 30 pct. More than a few hospitals and county health departments are revising their data downward, never upward.

Remember, when Progda tried to scare us, they were quoting over 2 million deaths. In March. Remember?

I'm not going to look it up, but I think the death count, even from the un-revised data is about 130,000. There are what, 335,000,000 living in America?

The math says 130,000/335,000,000 = 0.000388
So azalea city, you and Dr Atlas of Stanford agree.

We need to push actual facts that our medical and insurance industries have generated. Not Chinese or London "models", or scare facts like "new infections".

Square bales are more profitable, but also more of a PITA. Round bales can be handled and loaded pretty much with one guy on a tractor. Small square bales need help unless you spend big money on some of those new fangled balers that can bind several bales together.

Posted by: Guy Smiley at July 15, 2020 05:20 AM (FtO5h)

I first ran into the WoodpileReport.com about 6 or 7 years ago.
Guy was definitely over 29, from West Virginia I think. Was very conservative, practical, distrusted DC and government in general, big believer in family, God, America, our history, and the 2nd Amendment. Proud of his Appalachian roots. Lots of practical, useful knowledge sprouted from those roots.

And hated crowds, that's where the trouble came from. Liked families and communities.

His views would be right at home here at AoSHQ. I would guess he lurked regularly, if not posted.

The site also had some historical pictures and an old print ad about a 1938 Chevy or a 1957 Dodge, or a Westinghouse refrigerator from the 1940's, or something similar, a common ad from the past that was very interesting. And some black and white pics of some small or middle USA town from the 1920's or 30's, which were very detailed. Some were more like art, you could see the people's faces and see the emotion.

Nobody, or very few, ever knew who Remus was.

Square hay bales are Borzoi crack. Put one out and remove the strings. The older ones will graze away and the young ones will gleefully pull it apart and toss chunks in the air. Then when it's all spread out, young and old alike will fall asleep on a fresh-smelling layer of hay.

Trump has to simplify the message, and repeat, repeat, repeat.

Death rate is no different from the seasonal flu. And YES, every school is going to be open in the fall.

Say that over and over. Don't change. Parents will eventually figure it out. Let the Democrats, Progda, and the Teacher's Unions try to close the schools, after this new focused messaging.

It is the weak political point, keep firing at it.

And he has to quit picking fights with the ankle-biters. It gives Progda a way to skew his message.

I'm making up a spreadsheet of Delilah's show career: shows, judges, results, entries, dogs defeated, Grand Champion points, etc.

We and the AKC have a discrepancy in the number of Grand Champion points she has. Her Majesty has her at 206 while the AKC has her at 195. It takes 200 to be a Silver level GCH.

The discrepancy comes from interpreting the point schedule. If Delilah goes Best of Breed and the number of dogs competing that day is 5, if the point schedule for the region says it takes 3 dogs for 2 points but 6 bitches for 2 points, which do we take? The AKC is obscure on the matter.

Yeah, hay needed to be somewhat dry before you put it in the loft. Those bales would get hot and could catch on fire if they were put away slightly moist.

My cousins grew up in farm country and would talk about going from farm to farm to hay during the season. All the HS football players thought it was a great workout before the season started. Some farms better than other to work for, and with any luck, you'd get a nice lunch too. Probably paid less than minimum wage at the time, but jobs were not plentiful for HS kids.

Something tells me all of these uber-wealthy (hypocrites all) would certainly find a way to shelter their own personal income. Move it here, move it there, disguise it as this or that, shelter it, and use any legal means necessary to ensure they would not be affected personally. It's not like their own "take home pay" will ever be substantially reduced, and they know it.

I have a better suggestion. Reduce their personal net worth by half, including properties and all possessions.

1025 A group of 83 of the world's richest people have called on governments to permanently increase taxes on them and other members of the wealthy elite to help pay for the economic recovery from the Covid-19 crisis.
_________

I'll repeat my recommendation from yesterday, on JJ's thread. We need a windfall profits tax on online retailers. Not the small ones, just the ones doing a billion a year. And since we always hear how great the old 98% rate was, start with that. It'll drain the Amazon.

Use the proceeds to compensate the retailers who were either killed by the shutdown, or were they lucky enough to survive that, burned down by BLM.

Good to hear. The nearly-$600 is still usury, as far as I'm concerned, and yet another reason to leave The Pesthole State, but I have to admit I'm pleased to see that their "giveback" was something more than $25.

Texas Dept of Health: mortality rates of influenza past 2 seasons; .03% and .04%. Wuwu mortality is .01% but more infectious. Chinese engineered this virus to attack us.

Posted by: azalea city at July 15, 2020 06:08 AM

How are they getting these numbers?

Using worldometers COVID-19 data and CDC for the 18-19 influenza numbers, I got the opposite:

COVID-19 is less infectious, but more deadly than seasonal flu.

CDC estimates that influenza was associated with more than 35.5 million illnesses, more than 16.5 million medical visits, 490,600 hospitalizations, and 34,200 deaths during the 2018-2019 influenza season.

Season is October through March = 5 months

Per Month:
--- Illnesses = 7.1 million
--- Hospitalizations = 98,120
--- Deaths = 6,840

Percentage of Population (est. 330 mil.):
--- Illnesses: 35.5 million = 10.76%
--- Hospitalizations: 490,600 = 0.15%
--- Deaths: 34,200 = 0.01%
--- Deaths/Illnesses: 0.10%

COVID-19:
Infections/Cases: 3.5 million
Hospitalizations: ?
Deaths: 139,162

Per Month (FEB-JUL = 5 months):
--- Illnesses = 709,256
--- Hospitalizations = ?
--- Deaths = 27,832

Percentage of Population:
--- Illnesses: 3.5 million = 1.07%
--- Hospitalizations: ?
--- Deaths: 139,162 = 0.04%
--- Deaths/Illnesses = 3.9%

From that, it looks like the deaths/illnesses rate is 40 times higher than seasonal flu.

Flu: 0.1%
COVID-19: 3.9%

I'm just aggravated, because it seems everywhere you go, there are "experts" who put out different numbers.

I guess they assume no one other than them can do basic math. So they feel confident to put out any BS numbers and "studies" they want and we'll all just accept them as true and abide, like sheep, by any orders they give based on these numbers.

The aggravation is that when you use numbers like the "0.65% probability of dying" like Misanthropic Humanitarian shared, you have no idea where that came from. CDC doesn't "show their math", so to speak. So I go to data and do my own math and don't get a number anywhere near theirs.

And thus we can't check their math at all.

1062 1009 Citizens who wish to make a general donation to the U.S. government may send contributions to a specific account called "Gifts to the United States."

This account was established in 1843 to accept gifts, such as bequests, from individuals wishing to express their patriotism to the United States. Money deposited into this account is for general use by the federal government and can be available for budget needs.
______________________

Yes, if these rich assholes think they're not being taxed enough, it would be easy enough for them to voluntarily hand over more of their wealth -- or even all of it if that's the way they want to go -- to the federal government.

They don't need to wait for congress to pass a new tax law. They should put their money where their big, hypocritical mouths are and give the money right now. Without being forced to.

But we all know they won't, because they don't actually want to pay more of their money to the government. They just want to virtue signal.

Because they're assholes.

1063 Observation I've made regarding the school schedule: Local Christian schools are approaching this fall far more calmly than their secular conterparts. Pookette's school will start on its normal date, and the only difference will be more handwashing. There will be no afterschool program, however, and I don't think that it's coincidental that the program is run by a church that sends its kids to the public school.

1075 "How so/what do you mean"


Since the government depends on deficit spending the Fed is forced to keep interests rates low, that helps only the Fed and the government, that's a short term fix for a long term problem. No savings the dollar stagnates and eventual collapses. The banks have decided even before the 2008 collapse that playing the market was where the money is at, not small loans that require a down payment. Hence they no longer cared about saving accounts, they are becoming a thing of the past. But how does one save for a house? Mason jars?
