The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Some of the conversations I’ve had over the past three days, quite literally, have been the most difficult. “I am with the Black Lives Matter movement and I love and support the military and my brother and the people who have fought to defend our rights in this country.”Meyers Leonard


Quote II

Americans are just not going to pony up for Deutschland in perpetuity. To quote noted political philosopher Kang, the politics of failure have failed. Not penalizing the Huns for their deadbeatery hasnít worked. Maybe turning off the cash spigot will. And if it doesnít, at least we get to keep our money. Kurt Schlichter


Quote III

"Oh, we just have to do it. Really? Fauci is 79 but maybe if he had like 22-year-old kids who were trying to make their way in this world in an economy that is headed down the tubes, thanks largely to his recommendations, he would feel differently. It’s not merely an inconvenience when your economy collapses. It’s the end of the American Dream. That’s not a small thing. Maybe it’s worth it. Maybe it’s not but if it is, then you probably shouldn’t take a pass on the question 'Are protests and riots okay?' unless you're a total fraud, a complete fraud.'"Tucker Carlson


Quote IV

“I’m more the second responder, so the officer responds first. “There are times that I do go on scene with the officer but that’s only after it’s secured and safe for me to enter. But I try to assist the family in whatever services they need so they don’t have to, whenever they’re having a crisis, or having a situation where they need law enforcement, they don’t have to call 911.” Kelly Pompilio

A real 'Honest to God' Nazi sympathizer gets involved with the St. Louis prosecutor Kimberly Gardner campaign.

Liberal billionaire George Soros has contributed $116,000 to a political action committee supporting St. Louis prosecutor Kimberly Gardner, whose pursuit of Missouri's former GOP governor and a couple who displayed their guns during Black Lives Matters protest have stirred national controversy and legal repercussions.

A Missouri Ethics Commission filing on Saturday showed the Soros donation to the Missouri Justice and Public Safety PAC formed to support Gardner, and indicated the liberal philanthropist was the sole donor to the group so far.

The PAC reported it has spent about $104,393 so far, including about $77,804 directly on Gardner. Soros' donation allowed the group to pay off prior debts it incurred in supporting Gardner, who faces a primary this Tuesday, the new report showed.

People won't remember how bad the product was. However, they will remember the company by it's audacious advertising campaign.

A vegan food company is sparing no blushes with what it calls a “light-hearted” advertising campaign to encourage more Britons to avoid eating meat.

Meatless Farm says it is targeting people who have cut down on bangers and burgers during lockdown with its provocative slogan M*** F***, launched on Monday with a national campaign.

The words will appear on TV and radio adverts, electric cars, social media and supermarket packaging.

The Leeds-based brand, which claims that its meat-free or fake burgers, mince and sausages (made from pea protein) taste and look like the real thing – is seeking to build on huge growth in the UK, and as shoppers’ interest in plant-based alternatives has risen during lockdown.



This still cracks me up after all these years....................

As I was seated in my orthopedic doctor's waiting room some guy had the remote. He kept flipping between Days of Our Lives on NBC and CNN. Of course the following story is provided with a one sided slant.

President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with U.S. tech workers, before signing an Executive Order on hiring American workers, in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Monday, Aug. 3, 2020, in Washington.(AP Photo/Alex Brandon)
WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump said Monday that he had fired the chair of the Tennessee Valley Authority, criticizing the federally owned corporation for hiring foreign workers.

Trump told reporters at the White House that he was formally removing chair Skip Thompson and another member of the board, and he threatened to remove other board members if they continued to hire foreign labor. Thompson was appointed to the post by Trump.

The TVA was created in 1933 to provide flood control, electricity generation, fertilizer manufacturing and economic development to the Tennessee Valley, a region that was hard hit by the Great Depression. The region covers most of Tennessee and parts of Alabama, Mississippi and Kentucky as well as small sections of Georgia, North Carolina and Virginia.

On the bright side, it was a memorable vacation.

The pair, both 16 and from Eritrea and Guinea, had broken into the box of a Brit-registered BMW in Calais hoping to reach Britain - but ended up heading 100 miles further back into France.

But the Midlands couple in the car had only just arrived and the migrants only realised when they jumped out at a French motorway services.

Footage of the incident shows the fuming family accusing the migrants of breaking the roof box and asking whether they'd stolen anything.

"What the f*** are you doing, you c***," the man named 'Colin' says before telling one to "get out of my sight".

Science continues to amaze. Oral device is a digital joystick.

When someone refers to a people born into wealth and privilege, they might use the expression "born with a silver spoon in their mouth."


But will the day come when accomplished virtual reality game players are referred to as having been "born with an intraoral digital interface in their mouth"?

The expression may be a bit of a mouthful, but the notion is not so far-fetched. Graduate student Dorothee Clasen imagined constructing a tool that would allow users to bypass their hands or feet and control digital devices with their tongue. As part of her master's degree thesis at the Köln International School of Design, an institution of the Cologne University of Applied Sciences, Clasen came up with [In]Brace, a plastic retainer attached to a wireless transmitter.

Troll Level Status: Master H/T Bitter Clinger

ASHEVILLE, N.C. (WLOS) — A local group of activists is outraged after a black bear was recently seen in Asheville with a political sticker on its collar.

"Help Asheville Bears" (HAB) is offering a $5,000 reward for anyone who can find out who put a 'Trump 2020' sticker on the bear’s collar.


FFS a reward, really Karen? There is no truth to the rumor that Mike Hammer is responsible for this God awful dastardly crime of animal abuse.

Nope, he didn't think that one through. Genius Award Winner.

Meet Steven Lee Donovan.

The 22-year-old pizza deliveryman was allegedly pleasuring himself Tuesday night while seated behind the wheel of a 1996 Honda Civic parked outside a Circle K in Fruitland Park, Florida.

While Donovan was masturbating, a woman whose car was parked next to the Honda noticed that the vehicle’s sole inhabitant had penis in hand and was stroking himself in “up and down motions.”

Unfortunately for Donovan, the witness was an off-duty cop from a neighboring city. She copied down the Honda’s license plate (JACR06), which she subsequently provided to police dispatchers.

A Fruitland Park Police Department report notes that a review of surveillance footage captured the suspect--who wore a black mask--“pulling his pants down as he grabs his genital area” and “making a continual motion with his genital area.”

38 Fact bomb:

As you can see, Arizona, Texas and Florida have done infinitely better managing this virus than New York did and, quite honestly, the states aren't particularly remarkable within the context of the other fifty states coronavirus death rates.

But you also see something else on this chart, look how much worse New York (and New Jersey) are than any other state in the country. In fact, it's not just that New York and New Jersey are awful compared to the other states in this country. These two states literally have the worst death rate in the entire world.

By a huge margin.

Look at the data comparing New York and New Jersey to death rates anywhere else in the world on a per capita basis:

New Jersey 1,792
New York 1,685
Belgium 849
England 680
Spain 608
Peru 594
Italy 582
Sweden 568
Chile 502
United States 478

I mean, this is flat out unbelievable.

There were five northeastern states with a higher coronavirus death rate than anywhere else in the world.

Which is why the number one story in America ought to be the divergent outcomes in the nation's four most populous states. California, Florida and Texas have managed the coronavirus with minimal loss of life while New York's disastrous situation has continued to slide under the radar. But as more data comes rolling in New York's performance looks worse and worse.

Put frankly, it's impossible to have done a worse job than Andrew Cuomo did.

As if we didn't have enough #Woke corporations to keep track of already, is anyone else as annoyed by the Old Navy commercials as I am? There's no advertising their products, just Black Lives Matter this, LGBTQ that, and "we need to hear and respect all voices."

There's no in-between. The trick is to find out which one you are, and
be that."
I thought it was very Zen, being, rather than attempting. Anyway, I did quit smoking.

Dammit, MH, there goes the bear story that I promised on the Moose, Bat, Wolf-dog thread.

What is ironic about this, is that Karens are not bothered at all that the poor bear has to wear a damn collar around. I have a feeling that the bear is a hell of a lot more annoyed by the collar than the fact that there is a MAGA sticker on it.

But what was really cool was seeing the International Space Station. A kind Moron in the last thread gave me a link, and it was going almost overhead in 40 minutes.

It really pops into the sky, very bright and moving fast. We had 4 minutes of it traversing the sky, going overhead. Good balance workout. Using binocs and not falling was good. I could not resolve more than a bright reflection with my old 7 x 50s Pentax binocs from my OOD days.

Except those grotesque rolled grape leaf turds Greeks make, not sure what they are called but they are awful.

The home made thing that shocked and delighted me most though was home made mayo. Its pretty easy to make with a food processor but you have to be patient and careful or you ruin it. Well made its... amazing. So much better than the crud you get at the store.

After his death first occurred you should recall what I wrote in the comments that it was murder.

325 Just read a story on The Blaze that was linked to another site. A seventeen year old black HS student who was advocating to remove the police from HS was shot in the head Saturday and found on the sidewalk in his neighborhood. He died 19 hours later in the hospital.

The comment section at the Blaze is full ( I mean 90%) of posters either laughing about this or angrily stating he got what was coming to him for supporting removing cops at HS.

Maybe it's me, but I find nothing funny about another seventeen year old who was shot in the head. I don't believe this one was involved in gangs or violence, he was a 17 year old thinking he was doing an adult thing by organizing his peers to demand schools remove cops.

The people on that board , who profess to be "conservative" really creep me out. The internet is not good for a lot of society.

326 Could use some prayer Horde. Going to the emergency room tomorrow morning. In a week's time, I have gone from being able to be out and about doing every normal activity, to unable to walk without support, cannot hold a pen to write anything close to legible, can't pour a drink or wash a dish, up and down the stairs is a nightmare. Can't possibly get into or out of the bathtub.

No pain, just a sort of numbness/lack of sensitivity. I expect they will keep me and run a bunch of tests. Hoping the news will not be *real* bad.

396 It gets better - TVA was laying off IT employees, and hiring foreign contractors who were using H-1Bs to replace them.

Trump was meeting with TVA workers who had been laid off when he announced this.

The order followed the TVA's announcement that it would outsource 20% of its technology jobs to companies based in foreign countries.

Trump also denounced TVA's CEO for getting paid $6 million a year.

But, as always, the GOP-e weighed in:

But Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee said the TVA doesn't get any taxpayer money. Commenting on the issue in April, Alexander said the White House was spreading misinformation. He said that TVA chief executive officers' pay is lower than other large utilities and that TVA energy rates are among the lowest in the nation.

TVA owes more than $20 billion to the US Treasury.

I can kind of relate because my right arm, starting about 9 months ago, started getting weaker and weaker. Since I started physical therapy in February, it's better but going rather slowly.

Everyone says, and the MRI and x-rays revealed, a pinched nerve, which was a relief as I was worried about a stroke, which unfortunately there is a history of in my family.

This particular coupe was a predecessor to the design used as the basis for the Pursuit Special (V8 Interceptor) muscle car featured in the Mad Max franchise films.

It was also one of just 120 high-performance models featuring a 330 hp 5.8-liter V8 that could max out at 160 mph.

464 Well, hummus, which is enough of an excuse to bring in the latest kerfuffle that is like everything else being ignored due to C19 hysteria/misreporting/misunderstanding/mismanagement.

Oil venture headed by Americans including former SF officer, with Washington's blessing, apparently signed a deal with the Kurdish separatist outfit in Syria (well, one of them anyway, a large one, and one we've worked with), the SDF, to produce/export oil. Presumably via Iraq - which is fun enough in itself. Of course the Turks and Syrians are hopping mad (I mean, more than they always are), for entirely different reasons.

This might go on the list with the Angolan situation in the 1980s for hilariously complicated oil adventures. There, the Soviet-supported Cubans defended the American oil company operations that proceeded in cooperation with the government we didn't recognize, while the US funded rebel guerrilla groups.

They are going to do a lot of tests; CT scans blood work maybe a spinal tap and it will be hours in the ER. It all moves at a glacial pace to get results because there is so much going on in the ER. even if it doesn't look like it. If you can bring someone with to help you. Keep us updated

556 Maybe it's me, but I find nothing funny about another seventeen year old who was shot in the head. I don't believe this one was involved in gangs or violence, he was a 17 year old thinking he was doing an adult thing by organizing his peers to demand schools remove cops.

563 I'm painfully reminded of my few day's hospital stay, back in Oct. '98.

But first. Cfo Mom. I get the thing about taking care of your hubby. Were I him, I'd be appreciating and loving you now, more than ever.

Meet us here halfway though, would'ja? Soon as you have HIS ducks in a row, call 911 for the Whaaahmbulance, have your bag of necessaries packed, and wasteh NO MORE TIME in getting thyself to the E.R., forthwith!

He'll rest easier, knowing you're being seen to. And we'll rest easier for the same reason, too. Doesn't mean any fewer prayers, just happiness that your not only in God's Loving Hands, but those also of a qualified M.D.

Now then. This goes out to Jewells45 as a fair warning.

Those five screws they put into my left ankle back in '98, in exchange for the Honda Gold Wing I donated to medical science.

Well, tonight I'm attempting to silence their screams with additional bourbon. It feels like they're going to ballistically self-eject from my bones like so much Alien birthing shrapnel.

No, nothing traumatic to bring on the pain, other than successive days of playing ladder monkey while I work at restoring the house's exterior.

And though Aspirin is normally a "miracle drug" for me, right about now I'd either (a) pay handsomely, or (b) cut a bitch, to get ten or a dozen 500mg Vicodin. One to break in half and quench tonight's flames, and the remainder in the glass cabinet with the "In Case of Fire Break Glass" sign emblazoned thereon.

So, fair warning. Take care of your ankle, do all the rehab and then some, and never EVER throw away any of the braces or walking boots you'll acquire along the course of healing.

I have found that sometimes, merely stabilizing things in the walking boot, de-stresses the whole, and that enough to actually get to sleep.

Just a little room in your closet, for a whole bunch of peace of mind in the painful times.

Should be, but it could still be something you wouldn't suspect. Gas water heater, stove, dryer. Doesn't take much and if the windows are closed to keep the heat out the stuff could just recirculate through the AC.

The idea was that the robot was really inept at sexual harassment. So it would go around harassing all the chicks at the party, but badly. "You must be tired because you've been lighting up my circuits all day" etc. And if you gave the robot your number, it would text you a robot dick pic (just a picture of the crotch of the robot costume). Unfortunately, we didn't know anyone who was throwing a party where Sexual Harassment Robot would be appreciated rather than getting us thrown out, so it never came to fruition. C'est la vie.

Hope Cfo Mom gets her hubs, cat and self out of there long before my comment even posts.

CO2 is nasty, nasty stuff. Binds to red blood cells, and is SLOW to reverse.

The medical types here will know more than me, but a bad case of CO2 poisoning is an All Hands on Deck call for an ER and ICU staff.

Takes much monitoring of saturated blood gases, and much finesse in adjusting the flow of O2 and other "good" gases through the face mask or cannulure.

If she hasn't already, she needs to call 911 for a C02 emergency, and let the fire and EMS response do their thing. They're GOOD at it.

Might just save all the lives there involved.

Posted by: Moonbeam at August 04, 2020 12:52 AM (qe5CM)

No, the bends is when nitrogen that dissolved in your blood while diving with pressurized air, comes out of solution in your blood, and accumulates as bubble in your joints.

CO poisoning means that carbon monoxide occupies sites in the hemoglobin molecule that normally transfer oxygen from your lungs to your body, so your body and brain are starved for oxygen, even though there is an adequate air supply.

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor
I need to try mayo. I have made butter, a bit difficult to find the right heavy cream here, but otherwise it was easy and interesting to make. When I was back in the states, I bought a $10 device* from the evil company, Amazon, just shake the cream IIRC and butter in a few minutes. And someone suggested making anchovy butter, or garlic butter.

*Many people use a jamming jar for making butter. This device is a better plastic version, with a strainer section, to get separate the butter milk from your newly formed butter.

3. A most interesting monologue occurs at about the 30 minute mark. Milo opines on the hardworking qualities of the various house help he has known.

He says that Hispanics will outwork anyone else.

I cannot disagree with this statement. And I also speak from personal experiences.

Anyhow, the interview is worth a watch.

This is something we don't hear a lot about, and I'd like to know more. We know how many dozens of young Black males are killed in Chicago in a month, but how many drop dead of ODs? Also, how many of them live through massive doses unscathed? It's possible that "lethal dose" is another meaningless government measure. It's possible that the George Floyds can somehow ingest large amounts of multiple drugs. We hear about ODs. How exactly do they go down? Guys drop at the wheel of a car? Die on their feet? Fall asleep and don't wake up? (In all of which cases, COVID.) If George Floyd was an hour away from death, what would it have looked like?

You were watching it on that video. He'd already jammed a bunch of fentanyl up his ass earlier in the day and some of it obviously leached into his system.

He was already flipping his gourd when the cops pulled up and then he swallowed whatever else had with him. Add that the the fentanyl and whatever he'd consumed previously in the day non-rectally, because you know he was also smoking or sniffing SOMETHING, he was on a triple dose of death by the time he got out of the car.

Had the cops just leaned him up against his car and talked to him for 30 minutes he would have dropped dead just the same.

My totally-untrained-in-anything-remotely-resembling-science theory is that when I was a kid, all the farms here were planted with corn, now they're all planted with soybeans. It coincides with bucks being smaller, fatter and less aggressive, with shorter rut periods. I may well be full of shit - that's pretty much my standard condition - but the two things seem to match up.

Your sciency notion is correct, I think. In humans soy lowers testosterone (or raises estrogen, I forget which) in males, so I assume the same phenomenon may work on bucks.

703 This is something we don't hear a lot about, and I'd
like to know more. We know how many dozens of young Black males are
killed in Chicago in a month, but how many drop dead of ODs? Also, how
many of them live through massive doses unscathed? It's possible that
"lethal dose" is another meaningless government measure. It's possible
that the George Floyds can somehow ingest large amounts of multiple
drugs. We hear about ODs. How exactly do they go down? Guys drop at the
wheel of a car? Die on their feet? Fall asleep and don't wake up? (In
all of which cases, COVID.) If George Floyd was an hour away from death,
what would it have looked like?

without getting into the weeds, LD50, or, in layman's parlance, a "lethal dose" is a basic calculation of what ought to kill 50% of the average population.

that's why you see serious hard core drunks being arrested with BAC's well beyond the "lethal" levels, and the same holds true with junkies.

medicine is a "practice" because humans refuse to fit into or stay within precise framew*rks....

Mother Nature is funny that way.

It coincides with bucks being smaller, fatter and less aggressive, with
shorter rut periods. I may well be full of shit - that's pretty much my
standard condition - but the two things seem to match up.

Your sciency notion is correct, I think. In humans soy lowers
testosterone (or raises estrogen, I forget which) in males, so I assume
the same phenomenon may work on bucks.

Couple that with the man card being a living breathing entity that knows when its not wanted and you got serious problems. You need to do man shit, and a majority of the younger generations just don't do man shit. Staring at smart phones, social media, video games, etc, is not man shit. They can't fix anything, don't give a shit to learn, and have no clue how the fucking world around them works. Man card says fuck these guys and disperses itself among blue and pink haired femwhales who then spend their life hating their invisible dick. Well, something like that anyway.

in my experience, which is one of the reasons i refuse to hire illegals, is that they may w*rk hard, but they w*rk stupid, and generally F shit up, because they just don't care/openly despise you and your property.

they do half assed w*rk, leave a mess and are a security risk to boot.

the number of neighbors who have had their "contractor's" tools stolen just before the project is finished around here is amazing.

as are the number of burglarlies were the perp got in, knew where the good shit was, and got away during a time frame where the owner wasn't in.

hell, the next door neighbor had her door kicked in, and the first thing they did was rip off the air vent where the siren was hidden, so they could disconnect it before it was activated.

i either do it myself, enlist trusted friends, or hire real American pros, and limit what they have access to.

Yesssss. YOu're a nurse. Tell me, if George Floyd really was going to die of that dose and he hadn't been pulled over by the cops, how would it have gone down? Die at the wheel and cause a wreck? Step out of the car, take a deep breath, and collapse? Slump face-down into a plate of food? "George, George! Georgey-Georgey! Quick, wake him up. Pull his head up. Call 9-1-1!

Actual blue precincts would make no sense as targets. The idea would be to cut into our vote. There are plenty of places, in states we can win, where they could attack, driving Trump (and senate/house/state) voters away. And some would have bad local or state governments.

E.g., Michigan. Karen Whitmer lets them do it in MAGA precincts.

Even helped the school system feed the kids in the barrios.

My take on that is just stop feeding kids free food. Make the parents do their job, if it comes to that. I think a lot of money that is saved on their kids food is spent unwisely.

He said verbatim that he considered the bill of rights to be a list of "negative liberties", a list of things the government "can't do to you", rather than focusing on the things that government should do for you.

My employer has taken to sending out a daily text with a "self-check" with 8 or 10 questions about symptoms. If you touch "No" on the screen that asks if you wish to take the self-check, it goes away and you save a lot of time. And I don't doubt that if you click "Yes" for any of the symptoms, you'll be counted as COVID, or required to come in for another test.

They aren't doing any consequences or follow-up on this -- the IT manager admitted it in a recent meeting.

My question is why could you not have dropped this 6 weeks ago before George Floyd was declared a civil rights saint and his month long funeral. I know the police want and need to keep the day to day operations of an arrest from Becoming well known, but this was the reason for unrest and riots across country. Let us see what an idiot he was in life before we canonize him in death.
