The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Black Lives Matter. Black Lives Matter, right? For the Black people. This is for the black people. They’re destroying business for black people. They’re looting for black people.”Bevelyn Beatty


Quote II

At the same time Illinois Democrats are pushing for a massive tax increase, residents are again confronted with Democratic corruption at the highest levels of their state government. If the allegations reported today against Speaker Madigan turn out to be true, then he should resign,” Illinois Senate GOP Leader Bill Brady


Quote III

I give thanks to my Creator for this wonderful life where each of us has the opportunity to learn lessons we could not fully comprehend by any other means. Joseph B. Wirthlin


Quote IV

Politics demands that politicians be seen doing “something” rather than nothing, even if that something is more harmful than doing nothing at all. That is why Washington is so addicted to sanctions. Former Rep. Ron Paul


Quote V

“That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.” Neil Armstrong


Quote VI

"If you're a woman who's been a victim of ‎a sexual assault, ‎and the assailant is ran away, wouldn't ‎you rather ‎talk to somebody who is trained in ‎helping you ‎deal with what you're dealing with, as ‎opposed to somebody whose ‎main training is that they know how to ‎use a firearm, ‎right?" ‎MN AG Keith Ellison

The zinger of the day...............

We've always been told, "It's about the kids." Fine, if you don't want to teach (work) you shouldn't get paid either.

TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s largest teacher union sued Gov. Ron DeSantis and Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran to overturn a sweeping emergency order that requires schools to physically open five days a week, saying the policy bypasses local leaders and defies national public health guidelines.

The complaint, filed in circuit court in Miami-Dade County, comes as the Republican governor sought to distance himself from the order, which has been targeted by teachers, parents and school leaders since it was issued July 6.

The order has made Florida a political battleground over schools and the coronavirus outbreak as DeSantis and Corcoran followed the lead of President Donald Trump and Education Secretary Molly Devos, who are pressuring states to fill classrooms with students in the fall. DeSantis in recent days has backpedaled, making it clear on Monday that the mandate wasn’t his idea and putting his own education secretary on the defensive.


We all know it isn't about the kids. It's about lining their pockets with sweet taxpayer cash without working.

Still butt hurt from the 2016 presidential campaign, John Katshit, the mailman's kid, is going to be backing the Paste Eater Joe Biden. FOAD John.

Former Republican Ohio Gov. John Kasich is expected to speak on behalf of presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden this August at the Democratic National Convention, according to the Associated Press.


Kasich is one of many high level Republicans expected to support Biden, an anonymous source “with direct knowledge of the plans” told the AP.

A fool and his money is soon parted.

Nothing against her, but I wouldn’t pay $100,000 to have the real Whitney Cummings hang out at my house and do anything I want for a year, so I’m kind of surprised someone paid that much money to buy a sex doll based on her:

A sex robot based on comedian Whitney Cummings sold for an incredible $100,000 (£80,000), a doll company has revealed.

Mike Wilson, an employee at RealDoll, said the doll was the most expensive model the company had ever produced.

Cummings previously introduced the robot on her stand-up comedy show.

Latest: Opinion at Yahoo: It’s OK to Yell at Strangers Who Don’t Wear Masks

It was also a guest of the Joe Rogan podcast, and has been filmed answering questions.

…After the robot was sold a RealDoll rep, who uses the alias Brick Dollbanger, said demand had soared for exact version.

But he said it was not possible to keep selling more because that would breach licensing laws.

So.....Why are you still married?

When people come to r/AmItheA**hole to find out if they’re an a**hole, they sometimes unintentionally reveal a whole lot more about themselves. Like, that maybe everyone in their family needs therapy. This post remains up, but the original poster has deleted their account, probably because they were tired of people DMing them “wtf dude.”

The title of the post is, “AITA for giving my wife an ultimatum about getting a dog?” I don’t know what I expected, but that title really buries the lede on the OP’s story. He starts with this:
I had a dog when my wife and I got married. I loved her, she was my buddy. When my wife got pregnant, she became increasingly paranoid that the dog would be a danger to the baby. She brought up rehoming, and I refused. She was an “aggressive breed”, but she was trained. One day, she called me crying at work that the dog ran away and she couldn’t run after her. I believed her. I looked for that dog for weeks. I finally just accepted it because we had to go to the hospital to welcome our child and there were just other pressing concerns

If it sounds too good to be true. It is because it is.

A basic-income program in Stockton, California, is moving into its final stretch, and requests for advice from programs in development in other cities are flooding in.Photograph by Jason Henry / NYT / Redux
Last October, a fire tore through the apartment complex in Stockton, California, where Laura Kidd-Plummer had lived for five years. Nearly a decade earlier, Kidd-Plummer, who will turn seventy this year, had retired from her job in the wardrobe department at the Oakland Coliseum, where she had worked for twenty-one years. She eventually moved to Stockton in search of cheaper rent. After the fire, she and her dog, Poopee, a Pomeranian-Yorkie mix, were left homeless. Ever since, she told me, “I’m just trying to keep my head above water.” She stayed in a motel for a couple of months, which was covered by insurance, and then with acquaintances. In May, she moved into a loft in North Stockton. She was able to make the deposit on the apartment using funds she has received as a participant in the Stockton Economic Empowerment Demonstration, or seed, a basic-income pilot program that has provided unconditional cash transfers of five hundred dollars per month to individuals over the last year and a half. Before seed, Kidd-Plummer “had credit cards and had to use them to eat,” she said, because she was only eligible for sixteen dollars per month through food stamps. Now she’s able to cover food. “I’ve always worked, so most programs I’m not eligible for,” she told me. “I didn’t expect to be chosen. When I got the letter in the mail, I was floored.

Victor Davis Hanson is an intelligent man. There aren't many times you can say to him, "No shit Sherlock". The NFL has a black lives matter problem.

In a culture so obsessed with identity politics, is it the players or the owners and coaches (or both) who do not “look like America”?

Given that about 13% of the U.S. population is black, and given that the Black Lives Matter movement embraces concepts like proportional representation, today’s NFL teams hardly qualify as diverse. Social activists might argue that the league should mentor and recruit more Latinos, Asian Americans, and Native Americans to better reflect their percentages of our diverse national population.

Perhaps an NFL compromise could ensure that 30% of coaches and owners are nonwhite, thus reflecting current U.S. demography. But then, in reciprocity, the players would match such mandatory demographic diversity—leading to Native Americans, Latinos, Asians, whites, and those of mixed ancestry accounting for 87% of the player population. The NBA might also take note.

This progressive model of proportional representation could also apply to overrepresented white athletes in hockey, tennis, golf, and swimming—sports faulted by identity politics groups as being unfairly overrepresented by whites.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves. Before we plan on colonizing our solar system, can we work on some of the human basics here on earth?

The human future in the cosmos could be all but limitless, if we don’t destroy ourselves first. The same would be true of intelligent aliens elsewhere in the Universe, assuming they exist: how far they travel depends strongly on how long they survive as a species. That survival variable, which the US astronomer Frank Drake incorporated into his famous equation on the likelihood of technological civilisations beyond Earth, is unknowable at present because we are the only such civilization yet identified. Let’s be optimistic and assume that humans are persistent, working their way through the manifest problems of mastering their tools – or at least mastering them long enough to plant colonies off-world, so that our destruction in one place doesn’t mean the death of the species.


There’s a lot of real estates to consider across the star lanes of the Milky Way. Take a sphere 100 light-years in radius, with the Earth at its centre: within it, there exist about 14,000 stars. Beyond that, we don’t know the frequency of habitable planets in our entire home galaxy of 200 billion stars, but current indications are that they’re plentiful, with some estimates running into the tens of billions. If we can begin planting even a few colonies elsewhere in our solar system, and eventually on planets around other suns, our species becomes ferociously hard to eliminate. Kill off one branch and the others persist: learning (we hope) from the sad experience of their forebears; trying new social experiments; pushing technologies to ever-higher levels of sophistication; finding out about life elsewhere; and continuing to explore.

If you are white and live in a blue city, don't expect the police to defend you. And don't expect the George Soros' acolytes in the DA's office to back you either. You are on your own.

St. Louis’ top prosecutor on Monday charged a white husband and wife with felony unlawful use of a weapon for displaying guns during a racial injustice protest outside their mansion.


Mark and Patricia McCloskey, who are both personal injury attorneys in their 60s, also face a misdemeanor charge of fourth-degree assault.

Circuit Attorney Kim Gardner told The Associated Press that the McCloskeys’ actions risked creating a violent situation during an otherwise nonviolent protest.

“It is illegal to wave weapons in a threatening manner — that is unlawful in the city of St. Louis,” Gardner said.

An attorney for the couple, Joel Schwartz, in a statement called the decision to charge “disheartening as I unequivocally believe no crime was committed.”

Supporters of the McCloskeys said they were legally defending their $1.15 million home.

Gardner is recommending a diversion program such as community service rather than jail time if the McCloskeys are convicted. Typically, class E felonies could result in up to four years in prison.

Several Republican leaders have condemned Gardner’s investigation, including President Donald Trump, Missouri Gov. Mike Parson and Sen. Josh Hawley, who has urged Attorney General William Barr to undertake a civil rights investigation of Gardner. Parson said in a radio interview Friday that he would likely pardon the couple if they were charged and convicted.

Well of course. DUH!!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is among the lawmakers linked to business interests that profited from the federal Paycheck Protection Program.

A Pelosi spokesman said the Democrat’s husband, Paul, is a small investor in the company that owns the El Dorado Hotel in Sonoma, located in northern California’s wine country, according to an Associated Press report published by SFGate.

Paul Pelosi owns 8.1 percent in the company, EDI Associates, which amounts to somewhere between $250,000 to $500,000, Pelosi’s office said.

Elon Musk, Jack of all trades, master of none.

Elon Musk’s brain-hacking startup Neuralink is gearing up for a long-awaited reveal on August 28.

And Musk himself can’t seem to help himself from teasing the brain-computer interface. On Sunday afternoon, when computer scientist Austin Howard asked Musk on Twitter if we could one day listen to music directly through such an interface — streaming it directly into the brain, in other words, with no headphones needed — Musk replied with a curt “yes.”

Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Researchers at the University of Arkansas have developed a new nano drug candidate that kills triple negative breast cancer cells.

Triple negative breast cancer is one of the most aggressive and fatal types of breast cancer. The research will help clinicians target breast cancer cells directly, while avoiding the adverse, toxic side effects of chemotherapy.

Their study was published in June issue of Advanced Therapeutics.

Researchers led by Hassan Beyzavi, assistant professor in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, linked a new class of nanomaterials, called metal-organic frameworks, with the ligands of an already-developed photodynamic therapy drug to create a nano-porous material that targets and kills tumor cells without creating toxicity for normal cells.

Don't believe articles from how they are written. 99% of the news articles today are slanted, false, and misleading.

For example, I opened my PC browser and the first headline was "Couple charged for pulling guns at protest."
This was the headline about the McClosky's.

If you were an alien reading this Washington Post headline, you would surmise that a couple of people went to a protest and pulled out guns. They were charged with something by somebody, but you don't know what or who.

If you were intellectually honest, you would read the article then search for different articles to make sure there wasn't a different version of the story.

But those headlines are designed to make the sound bite addicts just grab onto it and start to parrot it.

Does Ellison have a clue that there are rape crisis centers that provide immediate mental health care to victims of rape? That rape reports almost always include a female officer to help interview the victim, get the victim to a hospital for an exam, that emergency rooms MD's and nurses are trained in rape counseling in how they approach a victim? That rape victims WANT justice for what happened to them if possible.(yes, I know there are those who don't want to report, don't want to cooperate, etc, but those aren't the majority.) Mental health counseling will continue for as long as the victim wants or needs it?

Ellison might as well just say that if she hadn't worn that short skirt this wouldn't have happened, and it's not worth being embarrassed about being a slut if it goes to trial.

Isn't he Muslim? That would shine some light on his attitude.

What, a sex doll?


One of the streaming services is pushing a series about a girl that suddenly has her boyfriend's sex doll start talking to her. Hell, they even go on a road trip together from what I've seen in the ads. So they're definitely trying to normalize that little fetish.

My point being; the local Sherriff's office is being portrayed nationally in a negative way. I think this is bad and pointed it out to them. Their response is along the lines of "we're just following the law" which, in my book, is lame. I accused them of "walking back" their involvement and, well they don't seem to like that interpretation. They're digging a huge PR hole and don't even know it.

Simple scale of the solar system:

Take a beach ball and drop it down. That's Mr. Sun. Take a peppercorn and pace off 26 yards and drop it down. That's the Earth. Now go out about 1000 yards and drop a tiny little pinhead. That's Pluto, and the extent of the solar system.

Now, how big is that compared to the Milky Way Galaxy.

Let the diameter of the Milky Way be the width of the continental US.

The solar system above is about the size of quarter. Drop somewhere in East Tennessee.

Plus getting to space will provide work for a whole lot of people.

Not so sure about that, there is a lot of money in victim compensation from the various Crime Victims' Compensation boards that are in all states. Those things run on granting federal and state money out, and child molestation, domestic violence and rape are all handled through those and are a major item for billing.

Also, they are run by very angry women who are 100% focused on rape and domestic violence.

234 About the guy and his dog? Well no offense i know a lot of people think their animals can do no wrong.

I love most all animals and will take time to make sure they're not harmed or being harmed. The flip side of that is that can't be harmful either. And some are.

Some aren't harmful but are obnoxious or very very annoying. (try explaining to your neighbor why he has to put up with your dog howling at midnight every night)

I've seen animals like that. Mostly dogs cause they can be damaged psychically and never recover. That dog may have acted vicious or scarifying to everyone in her family yet not to him or anyone he approved of. Some dogs can be like that (cats too but less) and fake their owners out.

She may have been genuinely scared of the dogs actions whenever he wasn't home. The parents visiting convinced them but maybe because she's THEIR baby. But maybe not maybe the dog just didn't like their family smell or something.

He should be glad they took it to a pound and didn't just let it off somewhere.


He should've seen this train coming down the road for years but his little man made the decision for him and here he is.


To top it all off we don't know this is the real story. You know how everyone's story gets changed a bit to make them look the best? Yeah that may be going on here.

Good evening, all.

So here we go. I was a little uncomfortable about rising hospitalization rates because of the COVID-19 "spikes" -- and today this happened.

In a nutshell, Gavin Nuisance flat-out claimed on live t.v. that one California county is so strained and stretched by the CRISIS that it has zero ICU beds available. Just said, it, just like that, in support of his Bride of Lockdown.

It turns out they're at 50% capacity (2 of 4 beds in use) and NEITHER of them is a COVID patient.

He made it up.

If you're interested, there are two seasons of that from BBC America. Not any of the stories from those two books but kind of an origin story for Dirk. I liked it though it got a bit gay in the second season as is required for all BBC shows. One of the lead character's, Dirk's friend, is played by the guy cast as Frodo in LOR. They nailed the chaotic serendipitous relationship Dirk has with the universe. One of the main producers or something was caught up in the metoo stuff and so the series was canceled.

She should be able to get SS. If she paid in enough months she gets a base amount which is admittedly low but enough to keep her in food plus she can get SNAP (food stamps) and other benefits that make her actual income quite liveable.

And all without taking 500 from her fellow taxpayers.

I suspect like all things, her story isn't being told completely or accurately

It a case of a bucket of water. You cannot keep taking water out forever. Someone/somehow the bucket has to be refilled.

Whether by you or your neighbors money does not magically appear.

Better way to say it, is you cannot expect everyone else to be a slave to your needs cause that's what happens.

We getting to fully automated on demand manufacturing.
Maybe before the end of this century where anything you desire can be ordered from a factory at little or no cost to you. Food will be a different thing to automate and then of course there's boredom. Soul sucking boredom.

Take it from me, the biggest problem I've had being retired so far (until you idiots started this covid/mask/shutdown/karen nonsense) has been boredom.

More broadly .. so much of history involves powerful men that forced things ... some better for the middle man, some tending more toward mafiosi. ... Franco comes to mind ... built some things. Others way too willing to only build their empire, but maybe with enough foresight to see pure evil would engulf their own regime in due time.

300 You don't get to colonize space when you have a generation that includes maniacs who think math is racist, sexist, etc.

You don't get to colonize space if you're a "science lover" yet believes there are 57 genders and that men can have babies.

And you don't get to colonize space if you're too damn stupid to breathe and eat at the same time, like Disney believes.

He's well ahead of others in his age group, and is a patriotic, polite and pleasant young man. As far as socialization? He's a big handsome farm kid who has his own truck and gets "phys ed" from heaving hay bales and working in the barn, every day. Trust me, he's got lots and lots and LOTS of socialization headed his way.

The Andromeda-Milky Way collision is a galactic collision predicted to occur in about 4.5 billion years between the two largest galaxies in the Local Group - the Milky Way and the Andromeda Galaxy. The stars involved are sufficiently far apart that it is improbable that any of them will individually collide. Some stars will be ejected from the resulting galaxy, nicknamed Milkomeda or Milkdromeda.

348 I never thought too much of man landing on the moon. And his words on landing were fake pre written and not spontaneous. Probably the beginning of the politician/lawyers interfering in the space program and dooming it.

See I always KNEW we were going into SPACE!!! This moon thing was just an exercise in the technology.

And then Johnson gave away the keys to the bank and proceeded to spend all the money on Medicare and Welfare and who's balls were bigger his or Ho Chi Minhs. (ans. Ho Chi Minh)

And that sunk the space program along with all the original Karens of the world getting hired by the EPA (*that was Nixon's) and OSHA and the EEOC.

No more adventuring to orbit just to see what could happen what new science could be found in orbit/micro gravity.

Plus if they had a space industry it needed to be IN SPACE!!! for cryin' out loud.

Going into space is not very cheap doing it from the bottom of a gravity well.

We needed to build our rockets and space satellites in Space not blast them from the planets surface.

We needed to mine the materials from the asteroid belt not the Earth.

Thus the dream died because no company could see where they're operations on Earth would benefit. And mostly it wouldn't but it would make the species safe and give us something to strive for and send our pioneers out to.

You can see what that has lead to: soi boi knotheads who don't even like to drive for gods sake and who can't concentrate on anything because their T levels are so low.

We just might get blown off the planet as the Yellowstone Caldera is overdue to blow. And going to space will be too late.

When we got there, she and the daughter met us outside with all his stuff. They loaded it, took a picture of him and helped us get him in the truck. Then they were gone. I suspect the wife beat him a time or two as he gets freaked if I get angry. He's at my feet now and I hope he'll be with me the rest of his life.

363 The "socialization" kids receive in school consists of being segregated by age. This prepares them for a situation they will almost never encounter in real life.

In this environment, kids learn that different is bad and might makes right as long as the teacher isn't looking.

You have to homeschool your kids in a closet if you want to shield them from socialization. Every homeschooled kid I know had a bunch of friends and participated in group activities.

366 YouTube forced an ad for Clear Vision Scope (tm) .. $279 for the pro version ... I have video cams with infra red ... viewing various spots in my yard, so I can chase out "predators" ... the LED flashlight held under the 22 kinda works, but the night vision scope would be groovy. Not ready to jump in yet ... wonder what the range would be. Dusk and Dawn have a lot of infra red ambient light ... I don't envision ever having human predators ... BUT preparation is still good for sound sleep, out here in the woods.

367 I never thought too much of man landing on the moon.

All our manned space things to that point we all dick measuring contests with no long term goals in mind. Send Alan Shephard up and have him come back down. Send John Glenn up to orbit the planet a few times and jumpstart his dogshit political life. The moon landings were more involved but really accomplished nothing long term. And the space stations were just places to do things in zero grav.

We've gotten more out of the Hubble than any of those.

I don't want to colonize space, but when it is "my time" I wouldn't mind being cast adrift in space to watch the stars as I pass.

Of course that would be selfish of me and keep my family from seeing me off. So I guess whenever that time comes, hopefully in 30 years or so, I'll spend my last day on Earth.

381 Eric Hoffer said that "every great cause begins as a movement, becomes a business, and eventually degenerates into a racket"

Exhibit MCVXII of this statement is the "Strike for Black Lives", which had their nationwide one-day strike today. Checking the link to their website (https://j20strikeforblacklives.org/about/) you find that it looks a lot like BLM, and you'd even think that it's BLM-affiliated.

It's not.

It was put together by SEIU, and when you read the list of their demands, it's all black-this or -that, until you get to the last of their four demands:

"Every worker has the opportunity to form a union, no matter where they work."

At this point, you know that they've switched the shells in the street game. The site is an umbrella for every left-wing group under the sun, up to and including climate change (350.org and Greenpeace).

Pathetic.

Fox News Channel stars Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Howard Kurtz were accused of sexual harassment by a frequent on-air guest in a lawsuit filed Monday that the network called frivolous and untrue.

Hannity and Carlson represent two-thirds of Fox's lucrative prime-time lineup, while Kurtz hosts the weekend "Media Buzz" show. None of the men have been mentioned before in any misconduct allegations at Fox until the charges were made by Cathy Areu.

447 "Did we even get Tang from the moon flight?"
Definitely did not get Tang. A non-exclusive list of what we did get:
1) The USSR to expend proportionally incredible amounts of industrial productivity on something that caused them to massively lose face in front of the whole world, instead of on all the other less pleasant things they would have spent it on.

2) A lot of very useful technologies aggressively pushed forward in ways that aided other areas. Compact, rugged, and power-efficient computers; rocket-engines (and their several associated technologies); fuel cells; communications. It's a long list. Most would have come around on their own eventually from other applications, but some, including some that supported later unmanned efforts, might not have, at least not for a very long time.

3) Somewhat related to 1, undeniable proof of the unmatched technical and industrial capabilities of free societies over authoritarian, 'planned' ones. Many of the folks here are older than me, so they remember the intellectual mood I can only read about in history books: that the future inevitably belonged to one or another stripe of "scientifically managed" society whose inhabitants would be little more than cogs in an inhuman machine. It was hard to square the supposed innate superiority of the flagship example of such a society with it's failure to win an explicit, timed competition of technological prowess. Free societies are better than socialistic ones even at bureaucratic projects!


4) A civilizational accomplishment that will inspire people for as long as it is remembered, which will probably be centuries. Given the tone of your statements this may not carry much weight with you, but I think the stories people tell each other are a fulcrum on which a great deal turns, culturally.

In any event, comparisons to the Wright Bros. are apples to oranges. They demonstrated an entirely new branch of technology (powered flight). The proper comparison there would be the work of Goddard or von Braun. For Apollo your proper comparisons are things like the land reclamation projects of the Dutch, the Great Wall of China, the Roman road system, the Great Pyramid, and other massive engineering projects that took more-or-less proven concepts and extended them to undreamt-of heights.

Send forth the bots. We're talking INSANE orders of magnitude weight penalties for carrying human beings aboard for years, or decades of interstellar flight.

Should the bots send back reports of receptive civilizations out there, then what's a few dozen years to receive the message?

Other than the fifty or so years needed to gear up to engineer an Interstellar Grade Human Rated spaceship of Nimitz Aircraft Carrier dimensions (but not the tonnage), said volume being necessary to the carriage of food, water, oxygen, waste recycling and other bulky, pricey and weighty things.

And so far as I know, the Solar Sail yet remains the only propulsive capacity I know of to reach .5 lightspeed.

Orion and it's successive nuclear boosts. How MANY of those does it carry to shit out of it's propulsion port? And they're manufactured in space or on earth? Uranium ain't light. How they gonna get THAT much of it aloft?

Car shows, cruise nights. I think it has enough structural rust issues to not be a daily driver. And the CV joints are sloppy, too.

I am going to pull the engine and fix the clutch. Looks like the trick is separate the exhaust pipes at a pair of flanges behind the drive axles, and then remove the entire engine cradle and front bumper along with it.

I have hopes that a 36 HP VW Beetle clutch will work, as I have an extra one or two.

I saw a pic on BringATrailer of a Panhard PL17 with a VW engine mated up to the Panhard transaxle, so they must be of similar size, at least.

Look up the floating turd in Apollo 10. That was the dress rehearsal for the actual landing with Apollo 11.

At any rate, a turd was discovered floating around the cabin in transit to the Moon. All three astronauts denied it was their own.

512 Evasiveboat42, he doesn't have a girlfriend. I invited him to stay with me this weekend because I needed a date for an appearance last night. I met him through a mutual friend 6 years ago, and he was a mess compared to the pictures I was shown and background I was presented with. We stayed in touch over the phone because he doesn't text or have social media. Anyway, a lot has changed in 2 years since I saw him last. He is a catch, and he is the prize and knows it. Just thinking about his confidence gets hot and bothered.
He also showers in the morning and at night before bed, which has got to be another sign.

Ok, I have to pick out what I'm wearing to bed and go jump in the guest shower to surprise him.

You guys sleep well.

Fox News Channel stars Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson and Howard Kurtz were accused of sexual harassment by a frequent on-air guest in a lawsuit filed Monday that the network called frivolous and untrue.

Hannity and Carlson represent two-thirds of Fox's lucrative prime-time lineup, while Kurtz hosts the weekend "Media Buzz" show. None of the men have been mentioned before in any misconduct allegations at Fox until the charges were made by Cathy Areu.
Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at July 20, 2020 11:54 PM (aKsyK)


First off, no way would Sean or Tucker, or even Howard do anything like that to make a woman uncomfortable in a work environment in a personal or sexual way. Except if that woman was afraid of conservative ideas. If she thought conservative ideas and rape were interchangeable concepts.

Secondly, Cathy Areu is a Far-Left See You Next Tuesday that has been out of the realm of reality forever, having seen her being interviewed over the years. She is way, way out on the warning track, nearly over the wall Leftie insane.

Thirdly. There is no thirdly. Cathy Areu is a lying c*nt. And having not seen her on Fox in months, guessing she hasn't been getting paid much and is pissed off at that.

dot dot dot..... fake lawsuit.

Cathy wants to get PAID!

524 From the last open thread:
74 Posted by: JeremiadBullfrog

Yes, an anecdote is data, but it has no value. It is biased and subjective and tells you more about the person using it to support their argument than it does about that argument -- Which is easy because it has no value to support any argument.
Posted by: Gentlemen, this is democracy manifest at July 20, 2020 07:53 PM (LWu6U)

I disagree that "it has no value". Any time you use data, you need to specify how you're using it and what you expect from it in order to assess its value. The same data can be good for some questions but bad for others.

Also, it is very frequently the case that the only data we have to rely on is anecdotal, especially in sociological questions. "Is the new restaurant any good?" "Where's the best place to get your car fixed?" "What's that neighborhood been like lately?" Much of this isn't clearly objectively measurable.

Sure, I suppose that you could boil questions like that down to highly specific, rigorous criteria and get a random sample of opinions from a representative cross-section of the population. But how is that "better" than asking a few people whose opinions on the matter you trust?

And then what about situations where there's no plausible likelihood of getting rigorous or (in this day and age) trustworthy information? Consider questions on the incidence of voter fraud or corruption in general. Yes, that's in some sense a quantifiable, investigable problem, but fat chance on getting anything like a truly unbiased and objective look at how that sausage gets made. At the same time, it seems like almost anyone who's had anything to do with government has a story of himself or someone he knows well who ran into some fishy business. Is that subjective and biased as hell? Sure it is. Does it build a "rigorous" case. Hell, no. Does that invalidate the information. Not necessarily.

Here's where one has to bring in consideration of the null hypothesis that the degree to which accepting it as the default is justified in the absence of "rigorous" or "trustworthy" data. "Voter fraud doesn't exist." "How do you know?" "There's no reliable data." "Oh really, because I know a bunch of people I trust who have fishy stories." "Nope, that's anecdotal; doesn't count."

Sure, and Epstein didn't kill himself because there's no evidence that he did.

Ok, that was tongue-in-cheek, but only sort of. My point is that attempts to be "unbiased" and "objective" about complex and possibly unique sociological phenomena by implementing evaluative/interpretive methods developed for relatively regular, repeatable, controllable natural phenomena may end up adding proportionately more noise than signal. Overfitting isn't just for curves.

Again, I'm not trying to say that any of this is ideal or even recommendable for anything close to mathematical/statistical analysis or constructions of generally representative models. It's not. My point is that information does not have to fit ideal math/stats criteria in order to be useful or actionable, and we rely on this kind of data all the time and that's ok precisely because we're NOT trying to build representative general models.

It's not a great principle, but it's along the lines of "in the land of the blind, the man with one eye is king." We're all afraid of being Pauline Kael, but the problem with her wasn't that her information was useless or wrong. It was that she tried to extrapolate for the wrong question.

529 Simple scale of the solar system:

Take a beach ball and drop it down. That's Mr. Sun. Take a peppercorn and pace off 26 yards and drop it down. That's the Earth. Now go out about 1000 yards and drop a tiny little pinhead. That's Pluto, and the extent of the solar system.

Now, how big is that compared to the Milky Way Galaxy.

Let the diameter of the Milky Way be the width of the continental US.

The solar system above is about the size of quarter. Drop somewhere in East Tennessee.

Funny story: A bunch of us went down to Tijuana on Friday night, October 19, 1985. We'd been down before, but this time, we went to a fairly upscale establishment (i.e., they carded). They friggin' made me wait outside for 10 minutes until midnight hit. Then I was old enough to get in.

More specifically, that there is Zero backlash, Zero consequence, Zero widespread instant revulsion at this and a dozen other things that have been going on ..... well, there's your "losing", right there.

Trump is likely to win, House likely to go to the (still 93% worse than useless) GOP.

And to just ultimately rain on everybody's size/scale of the observable universe notions, at that scale, General Relativity rules. Our Newtonian intuitions about the meaning of distance and time just don't apply.

There is large scale spacetime curvature. If you think the notions of distance and time in Special Relativity get complex, you ain't seen nothing when you add curvature.

It's all just arbitrary choices of coordinates. The symmetry admits a special choice of coordinates, dubbed "co-moving coordinates", but that is just as arbitrary as anything.

Anyway, when you're talking about the distance to some high red shift galaxy at the edge of the observable universe, you're just picking a number out of the ass of this particular coordinate system, with its particular definition of time, simultaneity, and so forth.

It has no meaning at all.

Best idea I've heard in a while is that Trump needs to sign an Executive Order, requiring any voter in Federal Elections to show a valid ID. A driver's license would be acceptable.

Zook was a guy named David who was strange/weird but harmless who would go around with an acoustic guitar and play Grateful Dead songs (he actually got me into them). Another guy said he looked like a Zook and so the name stuck. Zook did a lot of acid, maybe too much. There was (is?) a cafe there called "The Che' Cafe" (yeah, that Che'). A Dead cover band called New Potato Caboose was playing there my sophomore year. Zook and I went and he convinced me to try acid. Within a half hour he said it was a good, not strong, trip, but I didn't feel nuthin. I did have 2 airplane bottles of scotch which I offered to trade to the guy at the card table who was selling mushrooms (yeah, those kinds). I was polite, almost meek about it (cuz I had no dinero) and he scolded me for even asking. I felt like the kid in the Mean Joe Greene Coke commercial. I genuine apologized to the guy for trying to trade scotch for fungus. As I was walking away, he yelled to me and when I turned around, he tossed me a baggy of shrooms. I took them. About half hour later the show started, the acid finally kicked in, and when the band kicked off with Scarlet Begonias, I closed my eyes and saw Jerry Garcia's face on background of scarlet. My DJ shift was at 3 a.m. that morning and once I figured out how to use the turntables while on two hallucinogens, it went fine. 5 a.m. shift ended, walked home, got 6 hours sleep, drove to Zook's place and he was beyond amazed at how bright-eyed and bushy-tailed I was.

I think the Claremont guy probably could have said "a dozen" instead of 3, but added that most of them lacked the character to acknowledge and confront the situation.

645 In middle school I had a group skit where I played Gilligan and my friend was the Skipper. The likeness was pretty good. As an adult I've been compared to Keanu Reeves which is preferable.

I tried to play out the incidental music that comes right after the theme song and starts the action. But it was tricky and beyond my skill at the time. That was composed by a young John Williams if you don't know.

Finally, you might be interested in the large scale structure of the observable universe. We have matter distributed in vast space, and there is a structure to that.

Galaxies are grouped together in "groups", which are in clusters, which are in superclusters, which finally are in filaments (with some defining some intermediate structures between superclusters and filaments).

Filaments are the largest structures, and are about 200 - 500 million light years in extent. Above that, no further structure has been observed (doesn't mean there isn't any, we just haven't seen it...yet).

The structure at this scaled is sort of like a sponge cake or foam. You have regions of matter concentration, the filaments, with vast voids of empty space in between.

Ahh, but therein lies the rub.

Supposedly, the Universe had a starting point 13.8 billion years ago, and before that space and time didn't exist.

Huh. Nope, that's utter bullshit, IMHO.

Space existed, empty except for God, and time passed, known only to God. And then God created all the stuff that fills the space, and that stuff is expanding away from the origin point at the speed of light.

See? Easy. And just as likely as the absolutely unscientific, non-evidence-based fantasy nonsense that passes for "physics" these days.

673 It's the same quandary at Instapundit.

Suppose Tucker retaliates exactly the same way, by releasing the home address of Puckerburger. A bunch of his fans will write polite but firm letters about their disappointment with the civility of discourse.

You compare and contrast that with the antifa mob that showed up at Tuckers house ?a year ago? and you know that isn't the answer.

There will be no equality to be found between the civil and uncivil. They hate us and want us to be second class citizens, as Ace often says. I will not abide that.

The only possibility left is to go full William Tecumseh Sherman on them, though it was wasn't my first or second choice. This is our future, at odds with our first instincts of being kind and left alone. I am done feeling regretful about it.

Tell your friends and family, succinctly, "Liberalism has failed. When a mayor like this is elected, there are thousands of victims. When a governor like this is elected, there are millions of victims. The harm does not concern them, it will not perturb their (*wave arms*) spiritual journey."

Good news:
1) The scale of the conflict will be small compared to a civil war, no matter the heat of it, no matter what Tim Pool says.
2) I do not expect to lose so long as their ability to observe remains abysmal.

Insomuch as I believe, based on all my years of medical experience and the usual flu cycles, that this should be far gone by now, this "COVID" virus came out late in the cycle, (That is another issue and the jury is still out on if it was in fact a Chi-Com response to the US slamming some doors closed on trade or maybe an intentional distraction to keep us from applying military pressure in their South China Sea expansionism....)

I can only recall 1 other summer time virus and that was the "Hong Kong Flu" back in the early 70's of which I was afflicted as a child.

But to discount that the progressive left has not weaponized this virus for the upcoming election cycle would be suicide for the Republic.

2) Kasich needs to be reminded that he's one of the reasons Trump is in office. The guy had 0 delegates but refused to drop out, all so he could whack off over the idea he was runner up (not even in votes but time) Kasich's ego split the moderate vote and so Trump had an easy victory. So equal parts thank you John and go F yourself in silence somewhere.

766 Tonypete, from Kitty Hawk, it's about 2 hours down to the tip of Hatteras Island to get the ferry to Ocracoke (no reservations required nor does it cost money). A short 12 mile drive to the Ocracoke Harbor and the ferry (which does cost money; you can even make reservations). Probably better off taking the Cedar Island ferry out of Ocracoke. Puts you farther south, closer to your ultimate destination. Taking that route is scenic and, with no real hurry on your end, relaxing and enjoyable. Not to mention there are some good lunchtime crabcakes to be had on Ocracoke Island before taking the ferry.

795 Good morning, everyone. Several public school districts in our area have either delayed the start of school or will be virtual for the foreseeable future. The reason? They either aren't ready to open or the teachers, through their unions, aren't "comfortable" with reopening plans and are worried about their safety. As you can imagine, parents are not happy. Probably 90% want their kids back in school. My (private Catholic) school has worked all summer to be ready to open. Unless the mayor or the governor shuts everything down, we will be open. I'm looking forward to being with my students again!

To be fair, if these teachers really believe that children can be carriers of the virus and spread it, there is a difference between dealing all day with kids who will never wear their masks properly -- i.e. never touch them during the day -- and dealing with adults going shopping.

On the flip side, one wonders how many teachers are actually informed about this virus and the fact that children are basically immune to it and do not spread it.

In my opinion, schools should re-open and re-open with zero restrictions. No child should be required to wear a mask or social distance. Period.

But, if the requirement to go back to school is for children to wear masks and social distance and teachers to be policing that all day, having kids feel like they're in prison? Forget it.

And I don't think that has been made clear. People keep saying "open the schools!" But what does mean? Open without restrictions or open with mandates for masks, distancing and prison rules?

We got three 15 minute story times each week. There was no in person anything. In fact at the end of the year, parents had to pick up their kids' belongings (from April) from a pile of labeled bags left in a pile in the parking lot. The school made a big deal of the great personal risk experienced by the teachers who went in to bag up this stuff in classrooms that had been unused for two months. They went into the building dressed as if they were going into a surgical suite. This is delusional and staged. Biches don't mask up to hang out at the shore.

Sorry teach, you're a lazy asshoe. Put the teachers on an hourly wage and see how fast their asses head back to class! The kids will be going to school longer than ever then.

Posted by: CN at July 21, 2020 07:36 AM

Don't get me started on nurses.

On the one hand, they claim they're in mortal danger every minute of their time on the job and that makes them "heroes".

On the other hand, they have all this time on their hands to dance around on TikTok, a social media tool owned by the very country which put their lives in "mortal danger".

You can bet if the teachers go back to class, they'll be posting TikTok videos one day claiming how heroic they are and the next day dancing around like idiots.

Given how they do tests these days - simply registering for one is the same as a positive test, its possible to be "reinfected" many times in a single calendar year.

If I was an officer in those towns, definitely vote Team Blue because you still get paid, but don't actually have to deal with the underclass.

Much easier to hassle someone who regularly bathes and has a lot to lose if accosted by the police and the kangaroo court systems than it is to confront, handle and process drug addicts, bums and violent criminals.

Get paid, sit in air-conditioned comfort and handle the occasional DV call. Who wants to wear dark clothing, kevlar and heavy gear standing along a highway in 100+F degree heat just to get complaints and scolding when hanging out at the firehouse playing cards gets you a promotion?

Posted by: smile and wave, boys at July 21, 2020 07:43 AM

In my opinion, America was shot at least a decade ago when conservatives basically decided to give up the culture war --- "fuck ___, let it burn" - "not the hill to die on" --- and America has been bleeding out ever since.

2020 is now the Left putting a pillow over America's face to finish the job.

The "First they came..." poem rings sadly true in 2020.

If you check closely enough, you'll find that a lot of the "random citizens" being interviewed by local news stations are the same person using different names. You can find actors' resumes posted on the web listing their man on the street television appearances.

911 First they said, it's just a mask, but it really doesn't do anything so you don't need to wear it (unless you're in a hot zone in a hospital setting);
Then they said, it's just a mask, and you should probably wear a mask if you're in contact with a lot of people;
Then they said, it's just a mask, and you need to wear one if you go into a business that we have graciously allowed to stay open;
Then they said, it's just a mask, but you must wear one in a business or we'll close down the business;
Then they said, it's just a mask, and if you don't wear one in public we'll fine the heck out of you, charge you with a misdemeanor (or felony) under non-legislative administrative law, and haul you into court;
Then they said, it's just a mask, but you must wear one indoors in your own home (while remaining in full view of the surveillance cameras)!

I think a lot of it, also, is that most teachers are Karens. They are ignorant sheep and believe the hysteria and they are tyrants and love to control other people.

I looked up a former girlfriend I dated 15 years ago who I know is a full-time teacher now as I was curious if she was part of the Karen mask brigade. When we dated, she was conservative.

Sure enough, though, her profile picture is her and and her husband masked up with the frame "#MaskUpMichigan".

Sadly, it did not surprise me at all.

Fine with me, but if everyone's a hero, no one is and we'll regain perspective. Nurses and other healthcare workers are not heroes. Nobody called hospital staff heroic when we were dealing with oozing full blown AIDS patients before the dawn of antivirals.

Yeah, I know the ace has repeatedly said that he 100% believes it was health reasons.

But the timing is just too coincidental. Dying right before he was to reveal the Breitbart website?

I don't buy it.

I am guessing it was something like the George Floyd death. In Floyd's case, he was high on any number of drugs, tested positive for COVID-19, and had health issues. So being put in that retrained position for so long combined with all those health issues did him in.

I have always suspected something similar with Andrew Breitbart. Sure, he had health issues. So then it would be easy to slip him something that would aggravate those health issues.

Either way, his death was a massive loss for conservatives. No one until President Trump has stood up to take his place. Project Veritas is close, but they do different things. Breitbart injected himself into every cultural issue and not only called the Left out on their bullshit, but attacked them on other things as well.

937 Someone here asked yesterday if the governor of Missouri could pardon the St. Louis couple (the ones who were defending their home, their dog, and their lives from the mob that broke into their privately-owned neighborhood) before they were convicted of any crime.

The answer is that the MO constitution (art. IV, sec. 7) only gives the governor the power to pardon criminals after they have been convicted.

This is different from the U.S. president's federal pardon power, which does not require any conviction before the power can be exercised. That is why Pres. Ford was able to pardon Nixon, even though he had not been impeached or convicted of anything.

Of course, the president's pardon power only applies to people accused of federal crimes, not state crimes, so Trump can't pardon the McCloskeys.
