Thank you CBD

Italian Police Find Drugs Hidden Inside Coffee Beans

What's the point? Why ruin a perfectly good drug with cocaine?

***

Happy Saturday folks. Feel free to opine or bloviate away this morning. As always just a couple of rules. Those rules are no running with sharp objects, no pulling the 'ettes hair, no pissing in the pool and being nice to one another.

Have a great weekend!

39 Top o morning.

Appreciate some prayers from the Horde. My brother is in the hospital in a medically induced coma and intubated. He has the Covid-19 and it's bad.

I have to get tested now because I was in close contact with him at the beginning of the week. Also means I'll miss 14 days of work. I had taken him to get a heart catheterization. But it turned out that he had a bad case of AFib, not blockage.

On my way back to Raleigh, I had an episode while driving on I-40. Tooling along at 75 mph and all of a sudden, I got dizzy and felt all weird. Pulled over at the next exit which just happened to have a hospital. They checked me out and sure enough, I have AFib again.

44 My creaking, rickety laptop precluded me from commenting yesterday. In fact, it's been glitchy all week. Probably another patch.

Had I been able to comment, I was going to suggest that from now on we hit the Never Trumper crowd where it hurts most. No, not personal insults but professional ones. I think they derive perverse pleasure from us making fun of their sexual inadequacies.

Instead, we need to deride them for their public faces. Thus David French shall be "Failed First Amendment Lawyer David French." This is because he is most proud of this, but he's done nothing to protect the first amendment. He sues colleges and gets tiny settlements and colleges are still fascist enclaves.

Same with Goldberg, who shall be Failed Pundit Jonah Goldberg. Kevin Williamson is Failed Writer Kevin Williamson.

I know, I like calling Williamson as Admitted Cuckold and Woman-Beater, but that's been done. Time to try something different.

I just asked him. He said "No; I have never wished you were dead."

I did once ask my sister if she ever thought about divorce. She said "No, but I have thought about murdering him."
She is an introvert; Her husband is an extrovert I imagine different personality types is wearying sometimes for both of them, but they've been together since 1972 and I expect if it were really bad there would have been a murder report before this. My BIL has always said nice about and to my sister and and think complimenting your spouse is always a good thing.

69 Speaking of testing, there is word that we will have to be tested for the Hong Kong Flooey before we're allowed back to work.

There is also a rumor that we are being strongly encouraged not to have coffeemakers in our breakrooms. That is not going to go unnoticed. I'd rather be tested than do without coffee. Our breakroom does not have anybody working in it -- at least nobody regular; we have a work-study student who will come in late afternoons. So we can make a case that only one person at a time will be in there making or pouring coffee.

Utter nonsense.

122 Teh Stupid from across the pond, example 23,409:

Remember a few Book threads ago, OM put on a picture of the Gladstone Library in the UK.

Here is the opening to their Black Lives Matter statement:

"At the core of our being, we at Gladstone's Library believe that Black Lives Matter. We also believe that if it is the democratic will, after due process, to remove statues of William Gladstone, our founder, we would not stand in the way."


So, if I'm reading this correctly, they would have no problem, if after "due process" was followed, the mob were to dump all the books in the yard, light them up, destroy the building, and dance on the ashes?

139 In some slightly encouraging news, just in time for the weekend festivities in Seattle and Portland, two different federal judges took some small steps to stopping the madness.
In Seattle, the city council had passed an ordinance to no longer allow use by the police of tear gas, rubber bullets, pepper spray and other crowd control devices or tactics. A fed judge said, nope. Not going to let you go that road, This is after the chief of police said that since her officers were denied use of these tools, the officers would no longer risk bodily injury to protect lives and property.

In Oregon, a different judge tossed out a demand from the state Attorney General, no less, demanding that all federal officers either depart Portland or, be required to no longer make arrests. A city judge had already banned use by the Portland police of tear gas and other projectiles during protests. The feds are not under that injunction.
I guess having the offices of federal judges and US attorney's endangered has clarified some thinking.

"I noticed you have a Pride Blend, a Covid-19 Blend but no Black Lives Matter Blend. I'm very upset over this as it appears your brand is a racist one that clearly excludes the African American community. I will not be purchasing again and I will be letting others know your company is a bigoted one that clearly glorifies white culture."

Is this going to be the baptism scene?

Posted by: rhennigantx at July 25, 2020 09:54 AM (JFO2v)

169 In Seattle, the city council had passed an ordinance to no longer allow
use by the police of tear gas, rubber bullets, pepper spray and other
crowd control devices or tactics. A fed judge said, nope. Not going to
let you go that road, This is after the chief of police said that since
her officers were denied use of these tools, the officers would no
longer risk bodily injury to protect lives and property.


I'm of mixed feelings about this. I'm glad that sanity prevailed, but I don't like the idea that the idiots who elected these nitwits won't get the full reward for their idiocy, nor that a judge is, in effect, making law. OTOH, this is an example of the law being enforced when others refuse to, just like in the Jim Crow south. I won't worry about it too much, though. Either way, there is more coffee waiting for me downstairs.

173 Funsie fact as a counter to the poll trolling:

When Trump won in 2016, he was behind Hillary in national tracking poll by 2 points.

Today Trump is currently behind Biden in the same national tracking poll by... 2 points.

Trump's approval rating is one percent better than Obama (49% to 48%) at the same stage in the presidency.

This is one of my big pet peeves.

There should be no architecture involved beyond the first. Three designs that are easily modified for different terrains and soil conditions, and each design modular and arranged to maximize ease of adding another structure beside it.

No atriums, no fountains, and no glorious $5M structures unless they're part of the three designs that are chosen depending on the terrain and soil conditions.

I agree that both cities need to burn. What I've noticed though is the targeting of the riots.
They are staying out of the wealthier neighborhoods, where a lot of said rioters are probably from, and destroying downtown areas.
I'm a bit surprised, given the Amazon hate that they haven't yet targeted Amazon owned or occupied buildings. Kind of a selective type insurrection.

and I have not been around any. I wonder if I got it off the dogs? Also,
are dogs affected by poison ivy?
Posted by: f'd at July 25, 2020 10:08 AM (Tnijr)


you can get it of of the dogs, from touching clothes someone has worn through poison ivy/oak, from smoke from burning it, and in extremely allergic people, from the oils evaporating from the clothes of someone who has been working in poison oak.

I don't get it, and when I was younger I would wear boots and socks and jeans working in it, but I started getting rashes on my ankles.

It turns out I was re-wearing my work pants around the house on weekends, while padding around bare-foot in the house.

This is short-term thinking on steroids.

If classes are on-line only, why do we need so many teachers? The reason why the ratio is low is supposedly for individual personal instruction during class. If it's just a zoom session, you don't get that. Heck, you can (and they will) use taped modules.

The bus fleet will be idled. Music, art, phy ed - all those teachers will be laid off.

Basically, they're demanding the abolition of local school districts. Not something I expected to see.

Anticipated Target Escalation:
1.) Urban targets that have media coverage first.
2.) Rural targets with media blackouts so they can control the narrative.
3.) Churches first in the city. Keep people apart.
4.) Then public transportation to control movement of population.
5.) After thinning out urban police thru continued demoralization ops, they will start hitting police stations or HQ to keep them corralled and increase their own freedom of maneuver.
6.) Possible cyber attacks on stations who rout traffic through a server system. Most big cities and some medium cities do this to connect to first responders via text and alerts.
7.) Utility targets - especially power and telecom.
8.) If this pattern follows true, open violence will begin - utilities normally the trigger.

Another option is to gently but thoroughly wash the rashed area and apply the benedryl goop from a gel-cap on the area.

One option to take when you are out around it is to keep a tub of babywipes with you, and wipe down exposed skin every 15 - 30 minutes. Those will break up the oils too.

304 I have an 8 year old grandson, finishing 2nd grade, who had a teacher who made an honest try at doing online learning for April and May. I was with him for a few of those sessions, they tried to do it 2 hours a day. Right off the bat, there were technical problems almost every day, and only half the class ever tried to log in. BUT when it did finally get going, when the Teacher talked the kids (you could see who was on the zoom session by the little live-cam pictures in the sidebar) would look away, or fool with the dog, or the cat, or do whatever, anything except pay attention. So then, what she tried doing was to ask a lot of questions, keep the kids talking so they would be involved, whcih was not a bad idea. BUT how that turned out was that every kid, when they got to talk, just talked about what they had done, what their brother and sister had done, what the dog and cat had done, etc.

And so every "class" turned into 2 hours of kids just b.s.ing with each other, and then teacher would say "okay here's you assignment." Which maybe they would do, or maybe not, because there were no grades anymore.

and at the end, everyone got promoted to the next grade, even the ones who never logged in to a single online session.

314 BTW, the teachers unions have been boxed in by liberal governors. If COVID has weakened enough to allow schools to open, all other restrictions have to be lifted.

Thus they have to pretend that we are still in a deadly pandemic, which means schools are out of the question. You can't have schools open and demand mail-only voting for safety reasons.

Public schools are collateral damage in their attempt to subvert voting.

What will be interesting is if the Post Office announces that it cannot logistically support a national election by mail. I expect this to be an October Surprise.

Sounds great on paper - in practice, it never ran for more than 15 minutes without crashing, once it reversed everyones images to negatives, which was really weird, audio would turn on and off at random - yeah after a few tries with that everyone agreed 'oh yeah Zoom it is."

Opening schools would help the least vulnerable (students and younger/healthy teachers) get mild asymptomatic infections, and complete herd immunity, for the rest of the nation. Teachers retire (on golden pensions) at 55 anyway, so most are not vulnerable (except the fatties).

and at the end, everyone got promoted to the next grade, even the ones who never logged in to a single online session.

Sounds great on paper - in practice, it never ran for more than 15 minutes without crashing, once it reversed everyones images to negatives, which was really weird, audio would turn on and off at random - yeah after a few tries with that everyone agreed 'oh yeah Zoom it is."

I think the backlash will be strong and real. Trump had a moment where it wasn't helping him, because he didn't appear to be acting so he looked weak and ineffectual. Now that he's acting and being more proactive and showing how the dems are blocking him at every turn the backlash is growing and now trending in his favor.

Here's hoping anyway. I always figured once Trump was out of office the country was done, but I'd rather that be in 4 years than in November.

Personally, I think it is racist that black people are assumed to be incapable of speaking properly (or getting places on time or getting ID or, yah know, NOT committing crime).
Posted by: redbanzai the Southerner at July 25, 2020 11:14 AM (nAiE/)



There are real points to be made, that Standard American English is just one of many English dialects adopted in this country, and it has no more legitimate basis than any other.

The English spoken in New Orleans or the hills of West Virginia or urban black communities... these are dialects. They have rules and in some cases they're more practical than the rules of SAE.

However... language's first purpose of course, is communication. I know many intelligent black people who can easily speak with their grandmother in a dialect I'd probably need subtitles for, then go to the office and speak fluent SAE.

Could you make the argument that urban black English is as legit as SAE? Of course you can... but are you going to start trying to convert all the rest of us to it? If I started speaking jive, wouldn't that be "cultural appropriation?"

What do you want, do you want to be understood? Do you want to understand me? Then let's settle this. Which one isn't. Because you can't have it both ways... unless you don't WANT me to understand you, in which case, carry on.

418 It's not that black people can't speak properly but that white people decided what's proper. That's their tortured logic.

Posted by: Can't resist temptation at July 25, 2020 11:18 AM (2DOZq)


And so what if we did? The king's English is a great leveler. It doesn't matter how poor you are or what patois is spoken in your home, if you learn proper English, you are on a level linguistic playing field with the richest SOB out there.

OTOH, if you speak ignorant slang, people will assume you are ignorant and that puts you at a HUGE disadvantage in the actual world.

It's not really "framing framing" if there is not really a crime that you accuse another of committing.

Take homicide for example - kill somebody and tamper with evidence to make it look like somebody else did it. That is framing.
But if one merely creates the appearance of 'evidence' that somebody that never existed was 'killed' by somebody. That is not really "framing framing'.

You know that is their angle.

The problem is the clowns at Lawfare have know all along who the source was for the Steele dossier and they have been lying for over 3 years about it. They were part of the coup attempt.

Which is as stupid and self defeating as refusing to learn in school because it is "acting white". It should not be the job of universities to sooth their hurt feelings... it is the job of any school to give them the tools to succeed in life which includes enforcing proper speech and writing.

It very much is a so what if they wish to be successful in a way that does not depend on being born with great athletic ability or the ability to be one of the relative handful of black people who succeed in the music business. Any other type of success requires hard work, education and the ability to communicate clearly.
