The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

We’re the first in line to bitch and moan and hate a country that makes our freedom possible. More than that we’re also in love with the always -denied privilege, comfort, money, and safety that makes it possible for us to mouth off without limit. And finally, we’re coming to understand that we are not our parents’ generation, we’re “The Not-So-Great” Generation, and deep down we’re cowards.Gerard Van der Leun


Quote II

For these reasons, Seattle Police will have an adjusted deployment in response to any demonstrations this weekend as I will never ask our officers to risk their personal safety to protect property without the tools to do so in a safe way.Seattle Chief of Police Carmen Best


Quote III

Dane-Geld
A.D. 980-1016
It is always a temptation to an armed and agile nation
To call upon a neighbour and to say: --
"We invaded you last night--we are quite prepared to fight,
Unless you pay us cash to go away."

And that is called asking for Dane-geld,
And the people who ask it explain
That you've only to pay 'em the Dane-geld
And then you'll get rid of the Dane!

It is always a temptation for a rich and lazy nation,
To puff and look important and to say: --
"Though we know we should defeat you, we have not the time to meet you.
We will therefore pay you cash to go away."

And that is called paying the Dane-geld;
But we've proved it again and again,
That if once you have paid him the Dane-geld
You never get rid of the Dane.

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say: --

"We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that pays it is lost!"

Rudyard Kipling

Quote IV

I don’t care if you haven’t heard about what’s happening in these cities. I don’t care that their governors and mayors don’t think it’s a problem. Unless you’re Orval Faubus, it’s the federal government’s responsibility to quash insurrections and protect the rights of American citizens.Ann Coulter

I just saw him in an old television show the other evening. RIP actor John Saxon.


John Saxon, veteran actor who fought both Bruce Lee in Enter the Dragon and Freddy Krueger in three A Nightmare on Elm Street films, passed away in Murfreesboro, Tennessee on Saturday, July 25th. He was 83 years old.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, his wife confirmed Saxon died from pneumonia.

They have been using the wrong marketing strategy. They should say they are open for "Black Lives Matter" Protest Training.

NJ Gym Owners Accuse Gov Of "Flexing His Little Tyrant Muscles" After Being Arrested For Contempt

The owners of Atilis Gym, a gym in Bellmawr, NJ that was ordered by a New Jersey judge to close immediately, have been arrested on charges of contempt of court after refusing to comply.

Since it first defied the state and decided to reopen 2 months ago, the gym has become a local fixation, attracting protesters sympathetic with its cause. The report below, published earlier today, includes footage from some rallies that have been held at the gym.

Serious referral? Or grandstanding by Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL)?

Washington, D.C. — Today, U.S. Congressman Matt Gaetz (FL-01) filed a criminal referral against Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg for making materially false statements to Congress while under oath during two joint hearings in Congress on April 10th, 2018 and April 11th, 2018.

During a hearing of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and also a joint hearing of the Senate Judiciary Committee and the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, Mr. Zuckerberg repeatedly and categorically denied his company engaged in bias against conservative speech, persons, policies, or politics and also denied that Facebook censored and suppressed content supportive of President Donald Trump and other conservatives.

Take all of your fellow United States of America haters with you. And don't let the door hit you in the ass.

Movie star Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson have officially become citizens of Greece, the country's prime minister announced Sunday.

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis made the announcement in an Instagram post in which the couple pose with passports.

"@ritawilson @tomhanks are now proud Greek citizens!" Mitsotakis writes in the social media post.

Hey Lindsey. Put up or STFU. We are tired of you pretending to be Mr. Tough Guy of Law and Order.

Sen. Lindsey Graham on Sunday teased the release of evidence showing that the FBI “lied their ass off” to Congress regarding the reliability of the Steele dossier, which the bureau used as part of its investigation of the Trump campaign.

“I will tell you next week what I found,” the South Carolina Republican said in an interview on “Fox Sunday Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.

“Here is what I think I’m going to be able to show to the public. Not only did the FBI lie to the court about the reliability about the Steele dossier, they also lied to the Congress. That’s a separate crime.”

This may be snicker worthy. H/T Bitter Clinger

Around 1 p.m. at least two people were shot at the NFAC Black Militia gathering. Preliminary reports suggest an accidental weapon fire, and two people were wheeled off my medics.

The militia, which call themselves the “Not F-cking Around Coalition,” had a rough start to their march. “One person of the NFAC militia group accidentally discharged his weapon injuring himself and one other individual. Both individuals have been taken away by EMS. One shot in the leg and one shot in the hand.”

Seventy-six rioters in Louisville were arrested last night after police declared an unlawful assembly.

Per Walmart You must wear a mask.

Per Walmart you must not use your mask to protest.

Two shoppers who prompted confrontations with others for wearing swastika masks in a Minnesota store over the weekend have been barred from Walmarts nationwide.

The two were filmed Saturday in a store in Marshall, Minnesota, wearing loose face coverings featuring a black swastika in a white circle on a red background — the flag of the German Nazi Party.

When confronted, one woman said "I'm not a Nazi" and argued that their masks were a protest at the prospect of a Joe Biden presidency.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that police officers gave trespass notices to the 59-year-old man and 64-year-old woman, who have not been named.


Wearing masks made by Chinese Uighur Muslims is highly encouraged.

You may not believe this but I do have empathy for those who are unable to make their rent payment. However, as a former landlord I know the decks are stacked against landlords already. How do you landlords meet their obligations for let's say, property taxes if the Dems get their latest pipe dream?

Landlords are encouraged to think creatively as 28 million Americans face eviction

Sen. Kamala Harris joined the movement to address the housing crisis in America. The California Democrat introduced the Relief Act, which would ban evictions and foreclosures for a year for tenants and homeowners.

Those affected would have 18 months to make up missed rent payments.

This comes on the heels of a May survey by the American Apartment Owners Association that found nearly 60% of landlords said their tenants are unable to pay rent because of the coronavirus and 80% said they’re willing to work with these renters.

“We made it pretty clear to our landlords that people aren’t just suddenly going to be able to afford to pay back everything they owe on one day,” said Alexandra Alvarado, the association’s director of marketing and education. “So it doesn’t make sense to create a plan that isn’t realistic.”

Seeking perfection in an imperfect world. The left continues to eat their own.

‘Implying they lack individuality’

“I bet we all look alike to you” is a common accusation leveled against white people who unintentionally mix up the names of black people.

But what if the person mixing up names is herself black?

Student activists at Scripps College, a women-only member of the Claremont Consortium, are demanding the firing of Dean of Students Charlotte Johnson because she has a “pattern” of confusing black students for each other.

A petition to the Board of Trustees, dated June 14 but only brought to light Tuesday by The Claremont Independent, cited only two students whose names Johnson confused, however:

Thoughts from an old fashioned "Liberal", an interesting read by Prof. Alan Dershowitz.

The combination of elected prosecutors and elected judges has made our legal system far too political. Too many decisions are made by people, crowds, and pressure groups. When you combine four aspects of our system -- prosecutors are elected, judges are elected, juries are ordinary, lay people, and the judges who control the juries are often subject to re‑election -- the risks of our justice system being turned over to the masses, to the mobs, to the crowds, to the chanters, becomes all too real, and our system of checks and balances becomes weaker.

Remember that when America was founded at the end of the 18th century, the greatest fear was of the mob. We were watching what was happening a little later on in France with the revolution, and with the killing of so many innocent people in the name of the revolution.

It is very hard to be a dissenter today. If you are a dissenter today, you risk being canceled. If you are an editor who is willing to publish dissenting material, you risk being fired. If you are a dissenter today in a crowd, you risk being beaten up.

If there were no police, if the police were defunded, wealthy people would hire private security guards, but the people who cannot afford private guards need to have a well‑funded police force. I am in favor of extra funding for the police. Give them better training. Teach them how to subdue people without using lethal force.

It is refreshing that some Christian churches are fighting back at persecution. California churches say, "Enough!"

Grace Community Church in Los Angeles County is the latest Christian congregation to challenge California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s ban on religious gatherings in 30 Golden State jurisdictions.

Grace is led by Pastor John MacArthur, one of the nation’s most influential evangelical Christian pastors and authors. His ministries encompass books, translations of the Bible, radio and digital programs seen around the world, missionary works and multiple other outlets.

In a July 24 statement issued by him, other members of the pastoral staff and the elders of Grace, it was announced that:

“In response to the recent state order requiring churches in California to limit or suspend all meetings indefinitely, we, the pastors and elders of Grace Community Church, respectfully inform our civic leaders that they have exceeded their legitimate jurisdiction. Faithfulness to Christ prohibits us from observing the restrictions they want to impose on our corporate worship services.”

Mike Rowe the voice of reason and common sense on the Kung flu.

In a recent post, you said you’ve been to Tennessee and Georgia, giving speeches and filming for your new show. Before that, you were on the road shooting for Dirty Jobs. Is it really so important to film a television show in the midst of pandemic? Is it responsible of you to encourage this kind of behavior when infection rates are spiking? Don’t you watch the news? More and more cases every day – aren’t you concerned?

Darlene Gabon


Hi Darlene

Of course, I’m concerned. I’m just not petrified.

On March 15th, the day after my part of the country was locked down, I posted a link to an interview with Dr. Michael Osterholm. I’m posting it again, because I believe you and everyone else in the country would benefit from listening carefully to what he has to say. https://bit.ly/2WLOM6o

Dr. Osterholm is the Director of Infectious Disease Research and Policy. This is the same epidemiologist who ten years ago, predicted a coronavirus would come from China and turn our country upside down. In his book “Deadliest Enemies,” he anticipated the utterly irresponsible way in which the media would report on the situation, the completely opportunistic and shamelessly political way our leaders would likely react, and the unprecedented chaos and confusion that would arise from all the mixed messages from the medical community. His resume is unexampled, https://bit.ly/3jvzQTW, and his analysis of the situation is the most logical and persuasive of any I’d heard so far. He’s also the only expert I know of who hasn’t walked back his numbers, reconsidered his position, or moved the goalposts with regard to what we must do, what we can do, and what he expects to happen next. I say all of this because Dr. Osterholm publicly predicted - in early MArch - that we could conservatively see over 100 million COVID cases in this country, with a very strong possibility of 480,000 fatalities – even if we successfully “flattened the curve.”

Darlene is really a Karen of the nth degree.

Why say "please" when you can reach out and grab someone? Genius Award Winner.

A woman allegedly battered her father and attempted to grab his genitals during an argument over him “not sharing his medical marijuana with her,” Florida police report.

Cops allege that Dakota DiRienzo, 22, tangled with her father Luigi, 59, inside his residence at the Pelican Way mobile home park in Sebastian, a city just north of Vero Beach.

As detailed in an arrest affidavit, the younger DiRienzo reportedly told police that she and her father “were involved in an argument...due to him sharing his medical marijuana with his friends but not her.” During the confrontation, DiRienzo allegedly pulled her father to the ground, tearing his shirt.

Luigi’s girlfriend told cops that “Dakota attacked Luigi by pulling him down to the ground, and by attempting to grab his genitals.

I would hope not. I do think Tom Hanks is a talented actor, and if nothing else, a few of his flicks have tended to be pro-veteran (whether he had anything to do with that stance or not). But I have heard those rumors, and yeah, him taking dual citizenship right now is definitely not going to help.

Ever notice Graham doesn't answer direct questioning about all the things he's responsible for? Like, so, when can we expect these crimes to be punished? And Graham says, "I know, right? And I'm going to show where else they misrepresented themselves to us in the hearing I'm going to hold sometime between now and the future."

I get the feeling Graham doesn't really care for governmenting but for pomp and circumstance and reelection. He's generally quite serious about not being serious.

125 The left continues to eat their own.

I have more details on the hilarity coming out of Portland.

"Riot Ribs" has been serving free food for the last month or so in a park directly behind the riot zone in front of the Federal courthouse. It's run by typical Antifa white people, and has received $300,000 in donations.

A black gangbanger, wanting a piece of that action, created his own Venmo/GoFundMe, etc. fundraising accounts that impersonated "Riot Ribs", and put up signs around "Riot Ribs" advertising his fake accounts. The Antifa-types took the signs down, he threatened them. and they then left the signs up.

Well, the gangbanger, along with his "friends and cousins", did an armed takeover of Riot Ribs this afternoon. One of the Antifa-types apparently got his nose broken in the process.

Well, the "Riot Ribs" people have fled, and the gangbanger is apparently intending on operating the facility this evening. It will be very fun to watch.

You wanted to abolish the police? This is what happens when you abolish the police.

Advice for tonight:

@riotribs
is shut down to protect against violent takeover.
@riotribspdx
is a scam account. The trusted leaders of Riot Ribs have shut down and fled for their own safety. DO NOT go to the blue tents. DO NOT donate to the new account. Read this thread. Retweet it.

145 Three Gorges Dam, doomed from the start:

Wang said after a serious flood in 1998, China's then-premier hired
Western experts to assess the quality control of the build. The experts
said the steel bar welding of the dam didn't meet with standards.

Chinese workers were unhappy and said the Western expert's criticism was racial discrimination. But the criticism came too late.

You know, there are a couple quotes that have stuck with me from Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri over 20 years after playing the game.

'Beware he who would deny your access to information, for in his mind he see himself your master.'
-Previn Lal, Peacekeepers (UN Faction.)

'We must dissent.'
-Sister Miriam Godwinson. (Lord's Believers faction. The Religious Faction.) The quote accompanies an obviously police state wonder, IIRC, in which graffiti (the aforementioned 'We must Dissent') is automatically removed by automated process.

The governor has been making her Covid dictates based on the "emergency", but I don't believe she can do that with taxes. I think increases on income tax must go through the legislature, and property taxes increases are voted on by the population in the school districts. I may be wrong.

Right. They were making the cash through the GoFundMe donations to the fraudulent site. They would still receive those donations through the fraudulent site regardless of their commandeering the RiotRibs food truck.

But I also read that RiotRibs was giving away food a the riot scene and instead of being paid at the truck, were being paid by donations through the legitimate GoFundMe site.

So the gangbangers were getting loot through the site, but not the truck - who ever was running the truck had to supply the food and labor hoping that the donations would cover.

So again, why take over the truck when the truck wasn't making any money, only hemorrhaging it?

Probably still a low percentage chance it happens. They can dump a ton of water from the dam. Down river cities will suffer tremendously, but as far as the CCP is concerned, it's just a few dozen million people, so no big deal.

218 I'm watching the live feed from the Three Gorges Dam. It's really something else to watch; the sheer amount of water they're letting through the dam is absolutely nuts to watch, especially as there are a couple of Chinese guys doing roof work or something on a building in the foreground to give a sense of scale as to how huge the plumes of water shooting out from the spillways are.

Even crazier to think that even with all that water furiously racing out, they're still losing the fight against all the water coming in at the other end.

249 Spillway capacity is claimed to be 116000 m3/s. Expected inflow rate is 60000m3/s. Topping shouldn't be an issue. Lake levels are likely more a result of the authorities trying to manage the amount of water cities downstream are getting. If it gets bad enough, I'd expect they'll abandon managing downstream flooding and save the dam.

I had a delivery on Saturday night from a tony steakhouse not far from me, to a home in Huntington Beach. The order was sizable-- two large paper bags, a smaller bag, and two soft drinks-- but not huge. The Uber minimum, per their app when I took the delivery, was $6.

I guess I did the delivery right because about an hour later, the customers tipped me $22. So I made over $28 on one delivery that took me about 20-25 minutes.

261 I'm too impatient to wait for the weekend's gun thread, so here's a question for fellow shooters: have any of you heard of, or used, shotgun caliber adapters? I just stumbled upon them recently, and am surprised I had no idea they existed.

They're basically a small barrel you insert into break action shotguns that let you fire pistol and rifle ammunition. The hard-core prepper ones are small (3 inches or so) and smooth bore, so not extremely accurate, but are sold in little binders where you can easily carry several, allowing you to use various ammo with one gun. Other varieties are 8-10 inches and rifled, supposedly for decent accuracy.

271 I know there's no math on the ONT, so imagine this is not math.

When I checked the other day, I think it said China has about one and a half BILLION people.

If an industrial accident wiped out 100,000 people, China would still have one and a half BILLION people.

If an epidemic took out a million people, China would still have one and a half BILLION people.

If you took out ten million, even a hundred million, China would still have one and a half BILLION people.


So, I read that downstream of the Three Stooges Damned there are about a half-billion people, of which they have so far evacuated, statistically speaking, about a dime's worth.

At a half-billion people, a third of the population, you actually start to be statistically significant.

303 Evening.

Well, today sucked.

After sitting on my ass in Ohio for two and a half days I'm finally able to go get my load. Not looking forward to it because it's retarded. There's no yard dog so I got to drop my empty, pull out loaded trailer, drop loaded trailer, rehook empty and then blindside back empty into door. *Sigh* Well, a little extra work, but it's cool. I hate blindside backing but patience is key.

So I get there and the driver (same company) who was scheduled to pick up the load prior to me decided, "Fuck it," dropped his empty on the pavement and just grabbed his load and left.

Mother. Fucker.

So I mentioned I hate blindside backing, right? Now I gotta do this shit twice. Mine and the motherfucker's before me.

(Skipping ahead, but it actually goes smoothly.)

Well, so they're still loading my trailer. Guy tells me an hour. Great!

That was a fucking lie.

Three and a half hours later...*Finger*

And then back to fucking blindside backing.

*Both fingers*

(Still goes pretty smoothly.)

(And also sweating like a pig.)

(It's stressful.)

(And very hot out.)

Four hours after arriving I leave.

FINALLY!

But ya know what?

As much as this day sucked?

I LOVE this day!

I love this day so fucking much I'm just going to set it free.

Fly free, Day!

Fly like the wind!

*Deep breaths*

Okay, I'm tired.

I'm going to bed.

Night!

Modern commercial imaging satellites can manage under half a meter GSD. Good enough for meaningful details on something the size of a dam. The deformation most people are referring to in the commonly circulating photo isn't actually structural deformation but a processing artifact in how the image is stitched together from smaller segments.

The actual structural deformation is measurable, but not on visible band imagery.

346 One of the issues for landlords is say the city/state does put a moratorium on taxes, they'll just be due at the end of 18 months, at which time your tenants will probably leave without ever paying, and even if you sue you'll most likely never get that money, at which time it'll be due to the city/state.

If they pull a tax forgiveness for those who give their tenants rent forgiveness, they'll just raise the tax rate in 18 months, at which time the landlord won't have the money.

The govt loves this, there are more tenants than landlords, so they use this to buy more votes, the tenants have nothing to lose, and in the end if the landlord can't pay the city/state gets property that they can then sell to city/state officials or connected real estate developers for pennies on the dollar.

In the end the landlord always loses and the govt all wins.

359 Eye update: Went to eye specialist today for my left eye issue. Did eye chart - what a joke for the left eye. Put dye in both eyes. Tested both eyes using various lights. Apparently both eyes are borked in some fashion but the left is especially borked. Going to keep the antibiotic lens over the left eye for 3 more days, got a steroid eye drop to add to the mix, and going back Thursday. Changing lens out, look eye over, go from there.


Doctor is hoping we can heal it with just using the lens and eye drops and then see how it goes. If necessary he said he would "use a brush, scrape the eye, and build it back up". I am still unclear (ha!) what that entails to be honest. Home repair on the eye? Neat!

Anyways, thanks for the prayers and good thoughts. Just trying to wind down before sleep. Going to try and work this week.



I was at the doctor office for hours. Mask required. Gf had to stay in the car. Same thing on Saturday as well. So dumb. Tons of people milling around going to room to room. People coming in to order or pick up glasses. Just seems so dumb everyone masked up and "keeping away" from each other when that is just a joke. It ain't that big of a place.

Re Hanks and Greek citizneship.

Wilson is already Greek in some way, and Hanks converted to the Orthodox Greek faith when he married her.

In 2018, they lent their star power to help with the damages of a fire near Athens that killed about 200 people.

They also own property in Greece and vacay there frequently, probably spending a local GDP's worth of change when they visit.

So they got honorary citizenship. I think that's fair.

There was some peculiarity here in Alaska (or at least Anchorage) way back when. I don't recall if it was a tax thing or a financing thing.

There used to be a lot of houses that were basically just finished walk-in basements, complete with with a flat roof a couple of feet above ground level.

Maybe it was a combination -- perhaps the deal was that a foundation/basement wasn't taxed as a house, but a permanent foundation was sufficient to get mortgage financing. I don't really know.

There aren't many of those around these days, but they were everywhere back then.

The odd thing about the kids 'banging around' is that they simply seem to be agitating, not for change, not for justice, not for specific demands. Just escalating agitation- almost like there is no other point than to keep escalating until they get shot. Then the story would just be about abuse of power by the cops or military.

I think it's more likely, that if we flat out win by landslide, that CWII goes hot.

If they win, they'll simmer down and let their masters rule. Until they're summoned again unto directed violence against our holdouts and redoubts.

If we win, then they'll lose all restraint and go full-tilt-boogie in whatever town in which their population is of sufficient concentration to "rule" more than a four-way stop sign.

WE don't even have to engage.

If a state of insurrection and martial law are declared, at that point the status of rioters changes from "criminal" to "enemy combatant".

If they aren't wearing recognized uniforms or insignia, they are "unlawful combatants".

481 Reinforced concrete has an amazing elasticity.

If it was mixed with a latex vinyl admix & water compound, and was composed of the exactly correct mix of Portland, fly ash, aggregage and other elements in the mix.

10,000 psi concrete has been seen in the slump tests. It's not cheap. It's way not cheap in WuHu dam quantities.

I think the chinks will have been lucky to have poured 5,000 psi mix.

I'd *wager* that they got about 3,500 psi, max.

The Big Dipper, which is easy as pie to to see in the actual night sky, is completely unrecognizable in star charts purporting to show Ursa Major. Hey, people! Why not put fucking circles around "the" stars that make up the Big Dipper, so they can be recognized in the chart?

How much of Three Gorges Dam is even concrete? It is described as a "gravity dam", in which the weight of the water on its sloping top surface on the upstream side presses it down against the bedrock, ensuring a seal. Earth fill dams can work like that.

High concrete dams are usually constructed in the form of an arch, as seen in plan view, with the convex side upstream, so that the force of the impounded water compresses the arch into the abutments, and makes it even stronger.

487 AOP.

If you have a tablet such as an iPad or 7 in. Android

You can download navigational apps such as Starfinder.

They're meant to do the job of a Sextant on the heaving deck of a ship at sea.

How they work after download, two ways.

You point the tablet's back lens to the skies, and let the screen "find" navigational stars for you, and it'll give you precise declination as to above horizon, as well as to the fractional second of time to determine longitude.

OR

You tell it what star, constellation or astronomical feature you want to find, and it will guide you as you move the tablet left, right, high or low, till it's in the field of view.

You're gonna want Option Two.

And then, some kick ass binocs.

Two old decrepit Studebaker truck cabs that I was never going to do anything with, anyway, and a 1971 Honda CT70 Mini-Trail that I had owned for 22 years, and had some nice rides on.

And I pulled the Honda out of the shop, poured a quart of gasoline in the tank, and kicked the starter a few times, and it fired right up, and just ran like it always did.

When the buyer came by this afternoon, I asked, "Do you want to take it for a ride?" He said, "No, I'd probably just fall and break something." So, I hopped on it, did a couple of orbits around the yard, and he took a video of me on his smart phone. Then we loaded it in his truck.

507 Chernobyl was an okay design that could have carried on for decades. But the team in the control room decided to run an experiment not in the manual and kicked off a melt-down that exposed other design flaws.

Three Rivers Gorge Dam was supposedly built to withstand a 1,000 year flood. This was later revised down to once a century. And apparently its failing even at that.

Of course I am wondering how all this extra water is affecting the two fault lines the dam was built over.

Anna, speaking as a geologist, there are fault lines, and there are fault lines. Get down to a sufficiently small scale, and there are fault lines under damned near everything we build. Very few of them are active, and act as the locus for earthquakes. Most are just due to settling of the crust.

Without knowing the age and the history of the faults in the Three Gorges area, it could be a big deal, or it could be a non-issue. Modest up-down movement, say a meter or so, might not wreck the dam. But two or three meters of lateral movement could.

516 re: walmart

Our local walmart closed one entrance, leaving only one for entry and exit. And now lining people up again for one at a time entry. Masked up, one person (or a group if you are family, etc) at a time.

Because "social distancing". Isn't that the reason for the masks? I asked. Got a deer in the headlights look.

I also asked (a manager) why they thought it was a good idea to close off the entrance to the pharmacy end of the store. And what about the percentage of disabled parking spots. Now they've reduced those and are forcing elderly and disabled to walk longer distances both for parking (because now everyone parks on the open door end) and once finally around the gate, through the line and into the store, if you are there for the pharmacy or anything else on that end of the store, you get to walk that distance again!

No good answer for that, either.

And no, you can't have my address. Nor shall you be informed that I do, in fact, keep a spare key under the mat.

And that's because I once simultaneously locked my house key in the car and locked my wallet with the spare car door key in the house. Which is what one gets, AOP if you're around, for doing that "check your oil regularly" BS. And also what one gets for being a dumbass.

582 Some of you may remember when I testified in front of the County Commissioners against mandatory mask wearing requirements in the County.

Monday I did it again.

The inside baseball is the local land-grant university wanted a mask wearing requirement for the entire county. It is located in the city, which has a separate mask requirement, and they have one on campus as well. They were not going to open the University unless the Commissioners caved. Big stuff. A lot of pressure.

No adjacent county or other city has a mandatory mask requirement.

My testimony was that I am 11 miles away from the closest University property. Why am I being told to wear a mask? 6 feet is social distancing.

Plus I had my stack of C&E News magazines. I emphasized the 160 virus vaccine efforts, and how this is not a pandemic. Not a lot of dead from the virus. 3 in 5 months, out of 50,000 people in the County. They counted a 4th - a 94 yo woman who died of other causes while infected, over the strenuous objections of the nursing home.

I said that this is the flu, and you as County Commissioners have to weigh a wider perspective than flu deaths. [We have already lost permanently three of my favorite restaurants.]

3 minutes was all I had. Again, I was the only one to testify. And it worked. The requirement to wear masks is strongly encouraged, but not mandatory.

I am going to ask my doctor to prescribe HCQ for me when school opens August 20th. I figure that in a month, every kid in school will have had it. And not one would suffer greatly.

True but stupid:

Alert - June 15, 2020: Based on FDAs continued review of the scientific evidence
available for hydroxychloroquine sulfate (HCQ) and chloroquine phosphate (CQ) to treat COVID-19, FDA has determined that the statutory criteria for EUA as outlined in Section 564(c)(2) of the Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act are no longer met. Specifically, FDA has determined that CQ and HCQ are unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19 for the authorized uses in the EUA.

Some dude has an arrest record thirty pages long. Gets busted for murdering several people.
The state wants to look like they have had enough with the guy. He gets Life Without Parole. He appeals and gets it down to Life.
Which means 20 years. He's out in 10, unless he gets into a work release program, then he's out in 5. And put back out on the streets with the rest of us and is looking for his next victim.
When there is no Justice people will start making their own.
