So Karen's sad and bitter life, just took a turn for the worse.

After the video of Juan Andrade where it shows a racist incident between him and a woman from Rancho Mirage at the Parkview Villas circulated,the city has taken action on the disturbing incident.

The City Attorney Steve Quintanilla along with the Housing Authority’s Manager Marcus Aleman say they will initiate an investigation process. They said “The Rancho Mirage HOusing Authority has a zero-tolerance policy for this type of behavior and the harassment of any one, including other tenants, visitors, guests and contracted vendors conducting work at its affordable senior housing properties.”

Several Neighbors from the community have also reacted to the video that is now circulating on social media.

“We don’t need people like that living here,” said Evelyn DeMaria, who lives near the Parkview Villas. And Luis Medina who does live in the villas said “We live around the neighborhood and we are supposed to be more together and more friendly.”

Hey Navy, please tell us you had full coverage.

Photos have emerged online this week of the charred insides of the amphibious assault ship Bonhomme Richard, which burned for more than four days this week.

A Navy official confirmed the authenticity of the images.

Just thinking out loud here. When does the New York Times get burned to the ground? Surely, the Times is just as bad as a local Target store.

It’s far worse than I thought. In addition to the many links between the family that owns The New York Times and the Civil War Confederacy, new evidence shows that members of the extended family were slaveholders.

Last Sunday, I recounted that Bertha Levy Ochs, the mother of Times patriarch Adolph S. Ochs, supported the South and slavery. She was caught smuggling medicine to Confederates in a baby carriage and her brother Oscar joined the rebel army.

I have since learned that, according to a family history, Oscar Levy fought alongside two Mississippi cousins, meaning at least three members of Bertha’s family fought for secession.

Adolph Ochs’ own “Southern sympathies” were reflected in the content of the Chattanooga Times, the first newspaper he owned, and then The New York Times. The latter published an editorial in 1900 saying the Democratic Party, which Ochs supported, “may justly insist that the evils of negro suffrage were wantonly inflicted on them.”

Here I thought Disney World was supposed to be fun. Guess I was wrong.

Add “eating and drinking while walking” to the list of things you can’t do at Walt Disney World in the pandemic era.

Like some Las Vegas casinos, the park has banned consumption of food and drink on the move in order to ensure masks are worn at all times.

Disney World has been under fire in some quarters for reopening at a time when COVID-19 cases are spiking, particularly in its home state of Florida. To minimize the potential spread of the disease, the theme park has instituted many new rules on social distancing, capacity, and cleaning. It is also requiring masks to be worn at all times.

Previously, the rule’s exception on masks was limited to eating and drinking. But that loophole has now been closed, as patrons were seen walking throughout the park with beverages and food sans masks.

A real leader elected to a position of governance would have used every method available including deadly force to stop this bullshit. However, white guilt enablers have to enable.

On Saturday evening, two groups of antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters terrorized Portland, squaring off against police and federal troops. One group attacked the Portland Police Bureau’s North Precinct and the Portland Police Association (PPA) — the police union — while the other group targeted the federal courthouse and Justice Center, returning to set yet another bonfire at the ruins of the elk statue nearby. Antifa broke into the PPA and set it on fire. Before the violence began on this 51st day of unrest in Portland, Mayor Ted Wheeler (D-Portland) decided to hamstring federal troops, aiming to prevent local law enforcement from teaming up with them.

Water cannons and .308 ammunition for the win.

Neither rain nor sleet nor bullets will stop a US armed forces cook out.

Nothing will stop this BBQ from going as planned!
Most of us just gone done celebrating the 4th of July. Hopefully, you were able to enjoy a nice BBQ dinner with family and friends. For most of our servicemen and women fighting overseas, the chance to enjoy some nice steaks and brats on the grill must be a rare treat, especially in Afghanistan.

That is where the troops in this video are serving. While the meal is being prepared, the soldiers come under fire from Taliban who seem determined to ruin this celebration.

You will be made to care. No deviation from "Group Think".

THE BRONX, N.Y., July 17, 2020 — The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education is taking aim at Fordham University for placing a student on probation for two images he posted on social media, one of which memorialized the Tiananmen Square Massacre.

On June 3, rising senior Austin Tong posted to his Instagram account a photo of David Dorn, a retired St. Louis police captain killed by looters in the unrest following the killing of George Floyd. The photo included the caption, “Y’all a bunch of hypocrites,” a reference to Tong’s frustration, as a supporter of the Black Lives Matter movement, with what he refers to as “the nonchalant societal reaction over [Dorn’s] death.”

The following day, June 4, was the 31st anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre of pro-democracy activists. Tong, who emigrated from China as a child, posed for a photo holding a legally-obtained gun off-campus, with the caption “Don’t tread on me.” The caption also included an American flag emoji, a Chinese flag emoji, and a hashtag commonly used by Chinese citizens to avoid censorship of online discussion of the Tiananmen Square massacre.

Fordham wrote to Tong on June 8, when Dean of Students Keith Eldredge informed Tong he was under investigation by the university for the two photos. On Tuesday, Fordham handed down its verdict: Tong was found guilty of violating university policies on “bias and/or hate crimes” and “threats/intimidation.”

Always read the fine print. Or you to could become a Genius Award Winner.

A state plane transporting wildland firefighters crashed near Aniak in late May after the wrong type of fuel was put into the tanks just before takeoff, according to a federal report.

Pilot Mark Jordan, of Eagle River, and three Alaska Division of Forestry firefighters were hurt when the Aero Commander 500 Shrike crashed into a large pond in a gravel pit near the Western Alaska town on May 28.

Two of them suffered more serious injuries: Jordan, who is making progress after several surgeries, and a Hooper Bay firefighter who’s been released from the hospital but is still doing physical therapy in Anchorage, Forestry spokesman Tim Mowry said this week. Another firefighter from Aniak is recovering from hand surgery.

Jordan, an experienced pilot, was hired in the spring. It’s not clear when he can return to duty, Mowry said. Forestry is looking into replacing the aircraft.

The plane was transporting the firefighters to McGrath, where they were to be sent on wildfire responses from the Kenai/Kodiak area forestry station in Soldotna.

Jordan said he had the Aniak fuel vendor’s ground-service personnel refuel the plane, according to the preliminary report filed by National Transportation Safety Board investigator Brice Banning. The pilot signed the fuel receipt and returned to the cockpit to finish paperwork before departure.


Jordan loaded his passengers, started the airplane’s engines and taxied to the runway for departure, the report says.

The fuel vendor’s truck driver wasn’t familiar with the plane and had to ask the pilot for information, according to the NTSB report. Before he started refueling, the report states, the driver asked Jordan, “Do you want Prist with your Jet?” Prist is an additive used to prevent fuel from gelling in turbine engines that tend to fly at higher altitudes. “Jet” is Jet A fuel.

Brotherly love. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.


A brave six-year-old boy in Wyoming risked his own life to save his little sister from a dog attack.

Bridger Walker deliberately stood in front of his sister as the charging dog approached.

After getting bit several times on the face and head, he grabbed his sister's hand and ran with her to keep her safe.

Bridger required 90 stitches on his face as a result.

"If someone had to die, I thought it should be me," he told his aunt Nikki, who posted the story on Instagram.

37 On Saturday evening, two groups of antifa and Black Lives Matter rioters terrorized Portland,

Portland Reddit is full of accusations of hypocrisy because 2A supporters and other right-wingers aren't out in the streets with Antifa opposing the evil Federal agents.

Perhaps the nightly burning of American flags and the desire to destroy the United States might be a turnoff to right-wingers, but they're supposed to ignore that.

The Left also complains how brutal the Feds are oppressing them, as opposed to the Malheur occupation in the middle of nowhere, where the Feds allegedly treated the occupiers with kid gloves. If you note that one of the occupation's ringleaders was killed by the FBI, the Left's reponse was, well, he deserved it.

86 What is most distressing to me about the mask situation is the number of people (my family) who STILL think this is a terribly deadly disease. (and you-tubers my daughter watches).

I wear a mask because I don't want the powers to be to take away the limited freedom they are allowing - even as I HATE their power. My daughter & I got tested because we were going to Maine for vacation and we thought someone would ask. My doctor basically said test would only show that at the day of the test we were negative. We could have contracted it in the meantime.

Had a great vacation though - did not check news (not even AoS)....

96 An astonishing number of aircraft crashes after takeoff, result from exactly the mis-fueling as described in that article.

It would be a fairly simple thing, for the Fixed Base Operation and other ground operation industries to implement a fix, and solve the problem.

But it'd be hellaciously expensive to retrofit thousands of airframes, so that burners of Jet-A accept *only* a Single Point refueling coupler, and that burners of Avgas & STC'd Auto-gas, accept *only* over-the*wing, standard gas pump "handle" type nozzles.

And being somewhat paranoid about such things, how is that ANY given pilot doesn't stay with his plane until at least the beginning of the actual fueling cycle? At least that way, he can see and verify which fuel is being pointed his way.

Being a General Aviation Ramper isn't exactly a Rocket Surgery grade position. Most of 'em are damn good. A few of 'em aren't, and this ends up killing a few pilots and passengers, every year.

I'd be interested in some of our Pro Pilots weighing in, here. How would y'all bring about a solution to this problem, common since the dawn of the Turbine Age?

148 Sad news on my front. An older gentleman in my town, whom I've been very close to since I was a teenager, died yesterday. He's had cancer for several years and became terminal a couple months ago; he held on long enough for his grandkids to see him again, and that was it.

And I use the term "gentleman" seriously in his case. He was a true Christian man who would've gotten a kick out of this site if he ever read it (and he may have), and he'll leave a great hole in our community. RIP.

I've been wondering if we have any recourse. I don't necessarily blame the businesses for enforcing the mask because they would be shut down. But can we petition or sue or something for the right to stop pretending that we're all gonna die?
Posted by: Emmie at July 19, 2020 10:31 PM (+ljgK)


Our local mandate says that you don't have to wear a mask if you have a health condition, and under HIPAA rules, businesses are typically restrained from asking you to verify that you have such a condition, or what it is. I suspect it's the same way in a lot of places. So if you wanted to get out of wearing it, you could just say you have a breathing issue.

And honestly, with a lot of those masks, it wouldn't be far from the truth anyway.

188 My real issue with this mask bullshit and "social distancing" is what it means for going to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. I attend the TLM, Dominican Rite at the Cathedral. I now have to get there 20 minutes earlier to be certain I can be admitted, because we can only have folks on either end of a pew, with two empty pews between, and we must wear masks. Communion is held until after Mass, and we receive and exit the church immediately, with no time to prayerfully commune.

We do so because any excuse and the Municipality will demand that we close, and there's only so much money for lawsuits.

How is this NOT a violation of our Constitutional rights? I'm beginning to feel like a dhimmy in my own country.

228 A state plane transporting wildland firefighters crashed near Aniak in late May after the wrong type of fuel was put into the tanks just before takeoff, according to a federal report.


It's been more than a few years since my aviating days, but I recollect that it was an option, if not a requirement, to label the fuel type at the tank cap. Sporty's, for example, sold some really nice ones.

------
This began in the First Internet Boom (exp date early 2000).

People (mainly men) who had been successful in business over a few decades, were suddenly persuaded that the kids knew something they didn't.

It ran counter so any rational understanding of profit/loss/risk, but they gave a lot of keys to a lot of kids.

They somehow came to believe that every rational, proven, logical thing they knew was wrong.

So the Big Crash of Irrational Exuberance of early 2000.

Back in the last '65, I was finishing up my four years at an Augustinian high school in the Bronx. The good Fathers had put together a nice offer for me to attend one of their universities down Philly way. My Father was interested in a bit more parental supervision that a local school would allow. So, the pitch he came up with went, "You'll like the Jesuits. They're like God's Green Berets.".

I guess to the ramper, it *looked* like a turboprop?

But to your reply to my question, then how did the Jet-A fuel duckbill fit into the reduced diameter Avgas port on the Shrike?

Are rampers known to carry bottles of KY Gel on the line, or?

Posted by: No One of Consequence at July 19, 2020 11:26 PM (CAJOC)


Living on the Gulf coast, I've had gator a number of times. Usually fried. Very tough meat. It would really benefit from a long low temp roasting first. Then cut it up and fry it.

These days, I mostly pass on gator. Also frog legs, which do NOT taste like chicken.

Home Depot was only half maskd so I left it off but just in case I carried one in my pocket, which is probably full of Corona viruses. My kids at the momen can go to school this fall but with masks all day and endless rules. Sounds more like prison and but with more racial justice classes.

Driving through earlier this afternoon, and was scanning the radio dial for something good. Found a Wisconsin Public Radio station playing bluegrass instrumentals. Great! Then a song with vocals starts up, and here's a sample of the lyric from "We Americans":


"I am a son of Uncle Sam
And I struggle to understand the good and evil
But I'm doing the best I can
In a place built on stolen land with stolen people

Blood in the soil with the cotton and tobacco
Blood in the soil with the cotton and tobacco
Blood in the soil with the cotton and tobacco

A misnamed people and a kidnapped race
Laws may change but we can't erase the scars of a nation
Of children devalued and disavowed
Displaced by greed and the arrogance of manifest destiny
Short-sighted to say it was a long time ago"



Can't even leave bluegrass alone.

And now he wants to be praised by the people he is lying about because he just lied in a less offensive but more effective way? Got it.

509 With the complete disappearance of anything resembling a free press in an open society, maybe this is a naive point, but have been wondering for some time how this ridiculous mask and other b.s. (that's a very fair, even technical, description of it all, given the *actual* science and epidemiology of it all, as currently known) will be kept in place when all the numbers are crashing, everywhere (as has already happened many places, and is now just about to happen in the "FACT" states - FL AZ CA TX).

As I've been saying for some time, also, the plunge down the right-hand side of the Gompertz curve will coincide more/less with schools being online only or with some absurd mix of "precautions".

Oh, that's right - it will only be a ridiculous spectacle for me, and others who are thinking and understand the situation. Much of America will just continue to sit there, complying with "authorities" "experts" and "leaders" who are none of those things, other than by default and inertia.

From the Pics above, hatches were not even closed when they essentially abandoned her.

I find that very very troubling. Basic fire 101 is to close hatches to create a fire boundary.

For small fires, a primary boundary, if it goes for awhile, a secondary boundary...

Saw one fire where we set three, because of where it was at.

Common sense would say if you were forced to retreat from a fire, you close the damn hatches.

Pilot: "No, I want 100 Octane Avgas. Set up the ladder, connect the ground and reel out the hose. I'll wait."


Ramper: "But that big ol' cabin class high wing twin, ain't it a Turboprop? Those use Jet-A!"


Pilot: "Reel out the 100 Octane Avgas hose, stand up the ladder and connect the ground. Then, shut up for a moment while I start the fuel flow."


Ramper: "Yessir!"


Pilot: *fuel is now flowing* "Here, you keep it going, and I'll sign the bill when you're done. Meanwhile, don't change a thing, or I'll shoot you and watch you fall off the wing like you'd have watched my plane fall out of the sky, if your sorry ass had commenced to fill it with Jet-A."

"On second thought, just go get the bug cleaner, do the plane's windshields, and I'll finish this up, myself"


I've learned tonight, that if I'm ever flying in Alaska, I'll not depend on a ramper to do much beyond "pull chocks" at the hand-signal.

And even then, I'd have to look down at both mains to make sure he didn't miss one.

538 Very happy to have seen the comet - with binoculars, just now. As advertised, it's just below and bit to the left of the bottom corner star of the Big Dipper (astronomically-minded Morons, please translate into sky-watch-speak).

The tail was barely visible, kind of ghost-like, but there - would get a bit more clear, intermittently, if you stayed focused on the comet for a bit (probably atmospheric factors).

Will keep looking now the next 3 nights, I think they're slated to be the best for it.

This is in a suburban area of SoCal with a fair amount of light pollution.
Posted by: rhomboid at July 20, 2020 12:45 AM (OTzUX)

Went out for another look. Still high clouds in the northern sky; cannot see the Big Dipper, or the comet. Got a nice view of Mars in the SE, though. Shows a clear disc in my 10X25 binoculars, too.

Looks like it's slowly clearing. We had a real gully-washer T-storm about 4:00 P.M., and it has been clearing since then. But more rain in the forecast.

Concur.

And amazingly, it takes a HUGE amount of repetitive, tedious and wearisome effort for a Moron or 'Ette to find themselves on the outside, looking in.

Bannings here are vanishingly rare. More the norm, is that some tiresome beater of long dead horses, does so to the point that their arrival is met with manifold boos, hisses, derision and jeers, to the degree that it "dawns on them", that they really ought to find a forum more receptive to their dreadful tirades.

Debate honestly. Argue as among friends and family, and that not harmfully. And mostly, don't get all butthurt when cherished themes, tropes, theories and what-ifs, don't find traction here.

We're a pretty tractable bunch, all in all. As with clumsy dancers, we know our toes will be trod upon, as often as not.

But please don't kicks us in the nuts and tell us you only missed a beat and stepped on our dicks.

I'm more of a Class Soa'B' asshole -- If you haven't offended anyone, you ain't honest either.

I sometimes try to argue from the opposing standpoint; not out of spite, but because I think opposing views should be heard too. It's a debate, not a cheering section. If I see a fact misrepresented, I will challenge it. With facts.

I would say that Stalin was a utilitarian dictatorial asshole. I am not sure he 'fits' on the line.

I used to feel the same way about duck, until I found a Chinese restaurant that did a pressed and fried duck. For fifteen years, it was a staple of my order there.

Then the fuckers quit offering it. Argh! Peking Duck -- I've had it, it sucks. Duck fried rice? No thanks.

I remember when I was a kid the first time I heard about Peking Duck was on an episode of Alice. There was a restaurant critic and he went on and on about Peking Duck. He said there was no other dish like it and all else was lesser. It was the set up to a joke but it made me want to try Peking Duck lol.
We used to go to Chinese restaurants after church growing up. It became pretty much the bait for my parents. If you want to eat Chinese in a restaurant, you better get dressed and go to church. We didn't eat Peking Duck but mostly the buffets and Hunan/sichuan stuff. As you know, Chinese cuisine is about as varied as any cuisine from region to region.

I really do love Peking Duck and consider myself an aficionado I guess. It is not something I eat often as it can wear you down and become a major grease bomb if you eat too much. When it is done right, it is an epiphany but it is a far from spice as you can get.

I have eaten at Duck Chang's as well as at the now closed sister restaurant, Peking Duck. They always made a show of carving the duck at your table, it was a treat. I have heard that the scion of the family was one of the first to come up with a way to serve the duck within 30 minutes or so, as opposed to having to order it a day in advance as I am told that is the way it used to be.

They used to have great Peking Duck at a place called City Lights China in DC's Chinatown. Of course this was decades ago and I have no idea if they are still in business. There is one other place in NOVA famous for its Peking Duck. The restaurant is called Peking Gourmet Inn. That place became a hang out of President GHW Bush and his entire cadre. Other famous politicos have dined there but it always had the reputation as a Republican hang out. They used to line the walls with signed pictures of high ranking politicos and military officers. GW Bush went there a few times but it was really famous for his dad.

I have had foie gras quite a few times and that I appreciate it is about as far as I will go. I wanted to like it so it was pretty good. It is not something you jones for, at least not me.

I cooked a goose once for a big diner at it was also decent but was a hell of a chore. With duck and goose, you have to figure out how to render the fat so you don't grease up the meat.

The legs (goose, not sturgeon, silly) should be smoked, and used to make Solet.

It is a traditional Central European kosher dish. They serve it in the restaurants around the Great Synagogue in downtown Bp, maybe ok.

It has been a long time since i tried it. But you have to start with
pulling as much of the obvious fat off the bird. You
also prick the skin and use a drip pan. i haven't cooked an entire
goose or duck in many years as it was a pain in the arse as I recall. I
will do a duck breast from time to time. The key there is to cook it
skin side down for a long time on low heat to render a lot of the fat.

bad Peking Duck has lots of fat between the skin and meat. Sure it is way worse if the skin is not crisp. The most common flaw is overcooked meat. It is one hell of an art to get is right as you have so many things working in opposition. If you take a look at all they went through to make traditional Peking Duck, it is pretty incredible all they had to do to get render fat and dry the skin.

When I am talking old school, i mean the guys that would actually use a straw to blow air to separate the meat from the skin. There are some examples of this method online I believe. They later went to a bicycle pump or some other compressed air.

The voters living in Florence, Sumter, Georgetown, Berkeley, Darlington and Charleston counties are suing Gov. Nikki Haley, the Legislature and other state officials and claim a race-based plan for the state's seven districts "creates a system of voting apartheid in South Carolina that segregates white and black voters into election districts" and packs black voters into one congressional district.

I think we are talking about the same case. When you put all the blacks in one big district then it opens up more districts for Republicans and SCOTUS said you could not do that. But here we have Clyburn's district with an over 50% majority black. And don't even talk about Atlanta.

Section 5 of the Voting Rights Act (that put Certain States under Special Federal Supervision) was tossed by the Supremes in 2013.

The Clyburn case was unusual, in that SC gained a new (7th) Congressional district after the 2010 Census.

So it was all about the New Map after 2010.

For Big Fun, look into the Dem competition for the nomination in the new 7th District.

812 There was a similar case in NC that did.

Vic, I think we found it-

"The court ruled in a 5-4 decision that redistricting based on race must be held to a standard of strict scrutiny under the equal protection clause. On the other hand, bodies doing redistricting must be conscious of race to the extent that they must ensure compliance with the Voting Rights Act of 1965".

It was the "must be conscious of race" part that kept the SC case out of court.

Because without that, South Carolina would be 7/7 R in Congress.

Yeah, the season is going to suck.

Watched the two Mets vs Yankees games.

Also apparently the road broadcasting teams will be doing broadcasts from the booths in their home stadiums and will call the game by watching the video broadcast.
