The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I do not believe it is fair or right for protesters to show up at the homes of people who dedicate their lives to public service. I just want to live in peace and do my job.”LA County DA Jackie Lacey


Quote II

And no, in the age of American anarchotyranny, you cannot rely on the police, nor elected officials (Democratic or Republican), nor even mainstream Second Amendment organizations in Washington, D.C., like the National Rifle Association to stand with you in your time of need. Michelle Malkin


Quote III

“I think I got taken off the plane because I’m black. I am an abolitionist. I believe that we need to defund and abolish the police.Arlinda Johns


Quote IV

"I was born in the '70s. I was born and raised in Manhattan. I've always considered myself to be liberal. Now I'm not only a friend of people of color, but also an advocate ... but this movement over the last month has been powerful. ... I realized that I couldn't be not racist. I realized that I either was a racist or an anti-racist, and I wasn't — I'm not — an anti-racist."Seth Soi Boi


Quote V

"We've been in this legal battle for four years, and we aren't giving up this fight. As the environmental review process gets underway in the months ahead, we look forward to showing why the Dakota Access Pipeline is too dangerous to operate."Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Mike Faith


Quote VI

"Minneapolis City Hall is one of the only governmental buildings in downtown Minneapolis that does not have a security protocol. I mean, anyone can walk into our building at any time." Minneapolis Council member Lisa Bender

Lebanon's Chernobyl moment
On the evening of Aug. 4, Beirut witnessed an unprecedented explosion that ruined a large part of the city, injuring thousands and killing many.

Aug 5, 2020

A deadly time machine took Lebanon’s capital back in history to the scenes of its notorious civil war that lasted from 1975 until 1990. An unprecedented massive explosion at Beirut's port on the evening of Aug. 4 destroyed almost half the city, according to Beirut Gov. Marwan Abboud, who burst into tears while speaking on camera.

The blast left at least 100 people dead and over 4,000 injured, according to the latest toll released by the Red Cross.

Abboud likened the blast to those of Nagasaki and Hiroshima in Japan during World War II; video footage on social media showed a blast that was nothing like the country has witnessed over the past century during various tragic events.

In the southern village of Haris, located nearly 60 miles southeast of Beirut, a Lebanese man told Al-Monitor that he had heard the blast. Mohammed, who asked to be indentified only by his first name, said he first thought the explosion was related to the recent tensions on the southern border between Lebanon and Israel. When he saw what had happened in Beirut on the news, he “realized this was the same explosion as in Beirut’s port. I never ever thought I would hear a blast 100 kilometers away occuring in the capital. It is frightening.”

Good news for a few of the adolescents in the Horde. Ren & Stimpy gets green light.

As part of a major push into adult animation, Comedy Central has given a series green light to a reimagening of the cult Emmy-nominated The Ren & Stimpy Show.

Comedy Central has been tapping into IP across ViacomCBS to build an original animated slate around stalwart South Park. The Ren & Stimpy Show will join the recently announced Beavis and Butt-Head reboot from Mike Judge and Daria spin-off Jodie on Comedy Central.

“I want to thank our partners at Nick Animation as we re-imagine these iconic characters with a new creative team,” said Nina L. Diaz, President of Content and Chief Creative Officer for ViacomCBS Entertainment & Youth Group.”

What do you think of when you hear St. Louis prosecutor Kimberly Gardner's name? I think of a vindictive racist bitch who wouldn't know justice if it smacked her in the face.

If police determined that at least one person in the mob on Mark and Patricia McCloskey’s property was armed, another labeled “Human Shield,” and several issued threats against the couple … then why were they charged at all? Local NBC affiliate KSDK reported last week that documents and a voicemail show that Kimberly Gardner’s office pressured the lead detective on the case to “quickly reassess this evidence,” and when that didn’t work, threatened his supervisor with bad publicity unless the detective relented. That puts the prosecution of the McCloskeys in an even more questionable light — and likely makes it impossible to boot (via Tom Knighton at Bearing Arms):

It's good to be mayor King. Just ask the bum in LA.

The Mayor of Los Angeles, Eric Garcetti, has found a new way to stop large gatherings that will make Bill de Blasio envious that he didn’t think of it first:

“L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti announces he is authorizing the city to shut off water and power to any houses or businesses that are hosting any parties or unauthorized large gatherings. It will begin Friday night, and LAPD will respond, then contact DWP to cut it off.”

Is it just me? Or is this a truly LOLGF story?

Wireless charging is increasingly common in modern smartphones, and there’s even speculation that Apple might ditch charging via a cable entirely in the near future. But the slight convenience of juicing up your phone by plopping it onto a pad rather than plugging it in comes with a surprisingly robust environmental cost. According to new calculations from OneZero and iFixit, wireless charging is drastically less efficient than charging with a cord, so much so that the widespread adoption of this technology could necessitate the construction of dozens of new power plants around the world. (Unless manufacturers find other ways to make up for the energy drain, of course.)

For a fleeting moment, Da Bears Don't Suck. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky is being praised for his act of kindness for a family who lost their son in a car accident.

Jack Roche was a former Kansas football equipment manager who was killed in a car accident in July at just 21 years old.

Roche, who lived in Chicago, was a big Bears and Trubisky fan.

Upon hearing the devastating news, Trubisky sent the Roche family a letter with a signed jersey.

67 I was talking with my old professor today, discussing the general situation, and this is our working scenario for how the cold civil war turns hot:

There's a McCloskey-style incident, but involving someone from the red-county sticks--guy comes to the city for family/business/tourism, encounters BLM protesters who assault his car and threaten him, he brandishes/fires a gun and/or runs over protesters as he tries to escape.

Guy makes it back home. Kim Gardner-style prosecutor files charges for murder or attempted murder or whatever, issues warrant for his arrest, calls on red-county LEO to pick him up.

Red-county LEO tells prosecutor to pound sand.

Prosecutor dispatches their own PD to nab the guy, at which point red-county citizens get stirred up, and possibly LEO as well, and threaten to forcibly interfere in any attempt to arrest him.

After that, I don't know. But given the particulars of a place like Missouri, I could see something like that playing out here.

I think they can now dispose of the argument that water and electricity are "necessary" utilities that justify tax payer subsidies to low income residents.

Clearly, according to the Mayor, these are not necessities.

Water is not a life necessity. Neither is hygiene and sanitation. And if water is not a necessity, than neither is taxpayer underwritten food.

Emperor Inslee today shut down schools for the fall.

Will he attend the funerals for the suicides he is responsible for?

He claims "science", but fails to show his work or why he believes this false information. Covid is acting just like any other virus after about 2/3 of a year in the population.

The sickest have died, the vast majority have recovered or had no idea in the first place they even had it, and the death rate continues to drop.

Just like every other virus in the last century.


The Inslee Suicides
The Inslee Bankruptcies
The Inslee Divorces


In addition, how many thousands of kids are getting messed up at no socialization?


And no, as of about 10 days ago, zero deaths of kids due to Covid in WA.

Exactly like California's 8.9 million kids, none have died of Covid.

Inslee's actions will destroy thousands of lives.

Jay Inslee is the dictionary definition of a terrorist.

30 minutes and the battery takes up most of the space of the cabin [this agrees with what I was calculating]

I was calculating for 70 km over Venus so, 8.6 ms-2 where Earth is, what, 9.7 at 10 km. I was playing on easy mode. I can carry more freight. Freight unfortunately still mostly being battery.

TV networks have always had to mess with the frame rates for *filmed* sitcoms. Film runs at 24 frames per second (fps), while video-- including broadcasting-- is 30 fps.

It's possible they're using some new process to convert the originals and messed it up somewhat.



They've likely interpolated them up to 60 fps as part of the 'remastering' process for modern TVs.

196 But if batteries follow Moore's Law, it'll be 4 hours. That'll get me from Denver to anywhere in the Continental US

Batteries haven't been following Moore's Law for a long time, if ever.

Things that use batteries and are mainly semiconductor technology can make it look like batteries are getting far better, because the semiconductors can be designed to do far less work, thus using less battery power.

Any semiconductor work that planes and cars do is incidental to their real purpose, which is carrying weight. That work cannot be reduced without magic.

Power density is always an issue. Hard to beat nuclear processes for fantastic power density. But the shielding requirements for manned spaces kills it.

There is a fantastic effort worldwide to get battery power density up, and fires down. Li-Cobalt is good. But Li-Nickel looks promising, as does Li-Sulfur.

The antifa and BLM mobs are only going to get worse. If dickless liberals like Inslee and Biden get elected, it will be a message to the mobs that they can do any shit they want and get away with it. They WILL start targeting the homes of public officials. In Los Angeles, Portland, and Seattle, most of those public officials are democrats.

The Seattle mob has already gone to the mayor's home. That was when she decided to shut down the Capital Hill lunatic asylum. They have also gone to the home of the LA DA.

I'm not going to say what I am thinking. I want to continue to post here.

But the cities and towns look a lot like ghost towns. Entire industries are closed down. Mostly small business that don't have a floor of lawyers on the payroll to fight it.

And even the big employers are dinged. Boeing has had a few thousand layoffs in the last few months, with hints of more. Starbucks just announced they have lost $3 Billion since March. Only Amazon is winning, and golly gee whiz, Inslee does nothing against them.

Only economic collapse will do anything, and that will cause an open civil war, IMO. And my 3rd grade math calculations say this is getting closer all the time.

I never thought a human being could despise another, like I despise Jay Inslee, elected terrorist.

The needless pain and suffering this man is causing so many other people is abominable.

It probably is, but there have been several books written with that premise. Heinlein had Orphans of the Sky, which was even more amazing, in my opinion, than Non-Stop.

Heinlein took the premise a lot more seriously. Aldiss's characters know what a ship is, for example, despite ever having seen one, or any kind of vehicle, for generations (other than their walls, of course, which they don't know is a ship).

229 Heinlein's Orphans of the Sky remains current, in fact. It describes very realistically what happens when a culture returns to barbarism. Food is scarce; cannibalism is accepted, both individually (actual eating) and culturally (using people to power the world). Women are treated extremely horribly, and underlings are expendable.

260 Truck vs. Antifa motorcycle. Guess who wins? Yes, very rewarding.

Portland Antifa is very upset that the driver wasn't arrested. Apparently he was supposed to sit there and take his beating like a man, while his truck got trashed.

I mentioned this earlier, but tonight's Portland riot is at the East Precinct for then first time, which is far, far, to the east of trendy Portland, and is in an area mostly inhabited by minorities and immigrants.

Things may get sporty if they try blocking vehicles in that neighborhood. Among other things, a lot of Russians live there.

Good luck standing in front of a Russian's car, suki.

(The Portland police pay extra if you are fluent in Spanish, Chinese, Vietnamese, or Russian.)

270 What Heinlein story affected you the most?

I have not read enough Heinlein yet. But so far, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. I read it a long time ago, either as a teen or in my twenties, and recently re-read it.

When faced with a problem you do not understand, do any part of it you do understand, then look at it again.

I remodeled my house with that philosophy.

There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him.

A managed democracy is a wonderful thing, Manuel, for the managers... and its greatest strength is a 'free press' when 'free' is defined as 'responsible' and the managers define what is 'irresponsible.'

291 This is what I have to re-read when I despair:

Death for its goal, is not life's aim missed? Labours he well, that labours to bring doom about his ears? Death was never of God's fashioning; not for his pleasure does life cease to be; what meant his creation, but that all created things should have being? No breed has he created on earth but for its thriving; none carries in itself the seeds of its own destruction. Think not that mortality bears sway on earth; no end nor term is fixed to a life well lived . . . It is the wicked that have brought death on themselves, by word and deed of their own; court death, and melt away in its embrace, keep tryst with it, and lay claim to its partnership.

Technically, God gives you what you want, at least if one reads the second half of Romans 1 a certain way.

Since people are naturally at enmity to God, the more they shake their first, the more God "turns them over" until they merit and achieve their goal of death.

Classic apologetics describe the noetic effects of The Fall - that is since God is the Origin of Truth, Reason and Wisdom, those who estrange themselves from God distance themselves from these attributes until they are completely insane.

Agnostics have noticed this at least as early as Sophocles in the play Antigone.

320 I really have no advice for anyone dealing with depression/anger, because everyone is different.

One thing I did to help myself was to take note of what made me feel better, no matter how seemingly insignificant, and tried to repeat that when I felt that anger/depression coming on.

It was kind of a necessity to create stability with the kid around. Drinking binges and listless days really weren't acceptable behavior with a kid around.

Church certainly has changed my life. I can't really council anyone on their relationship with God, as I'm still working on mine.

But what I have perhaps found therapeutic was all the labor I put in at church.

When I am feeling those old feelings, I go mow the lawn at church with a push mower, takes me about 5 hours, 6 with weed-eating included. Or I mop the floors inside. Or I weed the flower beds.

Started feeling bad lately and went and bought a trencher to redo the landscaping lately.

Doing physical labor is very good. Plus I figure every hour of work I do is penance for the shithead I've been for many years leading to my deserved feelings of worthlessness.

I kind of think God looks at me and thinks "He's trying, bless him. I'll slack up a little. But those gutters need cleaning, son."

338 Back when you were really down, I once suggested reading up on stoicism. I'd suggest it again. I know you are cynical about religion. Stoicism does not depend on religion but is not incompatible with it either. And it's so much more than "suck it up." I think it would suit you and your logical, practical mind very well. A couple of suggestions, both by William Irvine:

Stoicism is a LARGE part of my personal philosophy.

Life sucks. It sucked yesterday. Its going to suck tomorrow.

BUT, can you find that one moment of Joy, that great memory, to see you through the sucky times.

Because once that moment is gone, whether it was good, or bad, the ONLY thing that affects your future, is your memory of it.

Hold onto the good. Discard as much of the bad as you can, while understanding that YES, it will get bad again.

But, it can also get good again.

Hassle me for no reason other than their own prejudices and personal advancement. It is impossible to get away from their shit. Nothing works.

And because they are devoted lefties, they only take advantage of kindness and twist it around. As it turns out EVERY coworker I have ever had a personal problem with has been a devoted proud lefty. This goes back to before I was ever political. It has never had anything to do with politics. They are just ambitious cold-blooded fucks.

There was one speaker who I seem to remember who mentioned it did not have a word for wheel, but had one for "plow" that was pretty much congnate with "drag" which indicates it left the homelands earlier than the other branches.
Does that place it outside of the soft/hard C branch?

Sometimes it's perspective, though. I have absolutely no doubt what was done to you was worse than you can share and you are sincere in your pain.

I'm just sayin' though. Consider how strange it is that here, of all places, the land of boobs, guns, power tools, and really bad puns, that a buncha people are still loving you just through computer generated pixels, sharing the word with you and wishing more than anything that good things are ahead for you and that you would be restored.

Strange that.

He's still after you, friend.

I think sometimes we think that if you we walk a thousand miles away from God, we have to walk a thousand miles back to find him.

See the pier in the foreground? At the end of that pier are two naval ships with singed fantails. To the left, out of the picture, on the other side of the water is the ferry like ship that rolled.

OK, going out on a limb here, about my own personal beliefs.

God was Old Testament.

What Man wanted to hear, is new Testament.

And even the New Testament has been reinterpreted in modern times, from Works, to Intentions.

We base Christianity on the Bible. Yet, we KNOW that some things were misinterpreted, and a lot of it was written 100's of years after Jesus was here.

So, suddenly the 'book' is divine writ, and cannot be wrong, because God said so... or some Man said God said so.

But... it is still something that is written by the minds of Man... Minds that could not even comprehend what we know today.

Its that old cunundrum. If a Shepard, sitting in a field in 1 BC, Saw a HELICOPTER, how would he describe it to his village elders so he would not get cast out as a Heretic? (not saying that happened, just pointing out that if you have no frame of reference, or language to describe, how can it be accurate?).

Now, add in a God who is omnipotent, and omniscient, YET gave us Free will, thus the ability to misinterpret?

I believe we are, in the OLD Testament way, each being tested.

And a large part of that Test, is whether we stand up on our own two feet, and take responsibility for our own actions... not blaming our decisions on others.

Thus, you can choose to live in the past where things sucked, and people screwed you over, orrrrrr....

You can look at this great planet that God gave us. I've been around the world, literally. Its an unbelievably cool place.

507 Went into Calgary today for a doctor appointment, and to buy some necessities. Discovered that Calgary Commie Faggot Muzzie mayor (all literally true!) has passed a bylaw mandating the wearing of masks in all indoor public places.

Didn't wear a mask in Princess Auto. Nobody said diddly to me. Didn't wear a mask in the transmission shop, and I was the only customer at the counter. Nobody said anything. Pulled on a dust mask at the medical clinic, because, hey! sick people congregate there. And after wearing through the lobby, and up the elevator, it brought on an attack of vertigo, so I pushed it up onto my forehead, where it remained until i got back to the truck.

My blood pressure is reducing, but they are going to increase the dose on the bP meds to bring it down more. Hey, if it works, it works.

I asked the doctor if he would prescribe HCQ for me if I came down with the WuFlu, and asked for it. He said, "Well, we don't have scientific proof that it works. On the other hand, we don't have scientific proof that it doesn't work. But health Canada does not permit us to prescribe it for WuFlu." "Will you prescribe it for me if I come in complaining of malaria?" "Oh, yeah, for sure. wink, wink"

And I got nagged in the welding supply shop, of all places, for not wearing a mask. But they sold me the stuff I came for.

But, for the nonce, Calgary can go horsefuck.

Protests should not be allowed at ANYONE's home. For them to come there constitutes a threat to life and property and justifies at least the kind of response that St. Louis couple gave. I would vote to acquit them even if they'd opened fire.

Posted by: runner at August 06, 2020 12:01 AM (zr5Kq)

552 My religious beliefs forbid suicide, so no matter how bad it gets, the option isn't available. Probably a good thing as I'd have done it YEARS ago (before kids) if it were. I try to focus on the positive and on what I can control.

For example, I can't control my extended family trying to bring their ridiculous drama to me. But I can hand it right back to them and decline to get involved. Most recently, my aunt contacted me because she wanted my medical opinion on a drug treatment my cousin is considering for a serious condition that is heavily affecting her quality of life, and she asked me to keep it quiet because my other aunt flipped her shit and told the first aunt the drug in question was a chemo drug (it's not) and my cousin should do some alternative medicine instead. I wasn't supposed to even tell my mom (these aunts are my mom's little sisters, and my mom basically raised them herself bc my grandma was in the sanitarium getting electric shock treatment for years after each birth. Whole other story there but suffice to say there's a reason the Bible talks about the sins of the fathers being passed on to the sons).

My response centered on the following points, phrased tactfully:
1. I am not a doctor and therefore my opinion on the subject has no value. My cousin should consult an actual doctor, including requesting a second opinion if she feels unsure
2. My cousin is a grown-ass adult at 38 years old and can make her own choices (caveat: the medical treatment in question is expensive and my aunt is likely the one paying for it...but still)

The whole thing was ridiculous, so in the name of being positive, I chose to focus on the comedy value. And no, I didn't tell my mom...yet.

570 I had the fun once of having a Kurdish immigrant (co worker) take me to the hospital, and while waiting for someone to come in and look for broken bones I wound up telling him about Xenophon's Anabasis, and how the "Cardoshi" were the one people the Greeks had to go around because they couldn't fight them and win.

Those can be the most dangerous, since most often he's lying to himself about his real motivations. But having known plenty of men who get into problems, *especially* older men, often it's a desire to feel "needed" or wanted, more than anything physical. And that can be the most dangerous, because the physical can be trivial, but the emotional desires cut straight to the heart. "White Knighting" is a real thing, and it has led many men onto a destructive path.

I have family members who attempt to dump ridiculous situations and dramas on my head, as though I am supposed to figure out how to fix the impossible mess they've made of things. I've learned, out of a necessary need for my own mental health, to listen sincerely and say "my, that sure is awful, what are you going to do about it?" And when asked for advice, I say "oh no, I couldn't possibly, that's too hard for me, but I sure hope you figure it out."

and the most important part, after they hang up I do NOT worry about what's going to happen. I'm not responsible for their lives, they are.

Posted by: Insomniac - Ex Cineribus Resurgo at August 06, 2020 12:03 AM (PYq1E)

This is good advice. If your husband has done something wrong(as in worse than wasting money), you're going to have to figure out whether you can forgive him/move past it. If you come to the conclusion you can't and that you'll always be resenting him for it, realize that this will flare up later regardless of whether he ever did something similar again. Secondly, while sometimes circumstances may push people into doing things they wouldn't do on more normal occasions and the problem can be addressed by avoiding bad circumstances, frequently it is the case that such activity reveals a tendency towards this behavior and would re-occur in the future. Thirdly, regardless of what else you choose to do, don't choose to be pissed off about it for the rest of your life. That won't hurt him, it will hurt you.

The reason for that was A) she asked for help, and B) help begins with understanding the situation. Without that, everything is just flailing about in the dark. Marriages are tricky things, and I've seen some fall apart that didn't have to if the parties would have understood more about what they were doing. I hope she's still reading, it's uncomfortable talking about a topic like this and feeling like one is talking behind someone's back. She does want to salvage the relationship, and that's a good first step.

Pull a bunch of cash out of your bank account.

Go to a local casino, make very small bets, take your time. Spend some time there, don't bet very much, take your time.

Tell everyone you lost thousands at the casino. You don't know what happened, you just went crazy and went to the casino, and lost the money. Don't dwell on the details.

Make sure you have a good hiding place for that cash. Nobody, and I mean nobody, can know.

The divorce judge will ask you did you spend it, and say yes.

And practice in the mirror a lot the day before.

The law? fuch the law. If you have been paying attention the last 6 months, you will know there is no law any more.

WDS, I am sorry about your situation. You are getting some good advice here. Really hard to keep excitement and happiness in a marriage. And easy for a man to look elsewhere. Especially when some younger etc girl talks to him, slowly brings up the problems in her life, problems that seem easy to fix with money. My 2 cents, try not to push him further away with your natural jealousy about the situation. In a way, maybe it is a bit of a cry for attention.

I knew a wise and experienced counselor once who would tell people that marriages, and relationships, could usually be saved if there was good will on both sides, and none of the three "A"s were involved - Adultery, Abuse, Addiction. If any of those are in play, it may not be worth saving.

That's too funny, if true. Like Susan Rice's son being a conservative activist on his college campus?

And on the ONT last night...the cattle rustling was in NW IL, Dixon to be precise.

Farm was on the Rock River just out of town. Cattle had been stolen and butchered on an island in the river.

My grt grandfather rigged up an alarm system so when the barn door opened an alarm rang in the house. He and his 2 boys went out and it was my Grandad that shot the rustler.

Blood trail lead to the rustler's house. Don't know if he did time, but he lost his leg. Grandpa wan't big on guns after, but he always had a shotgun in the basement for varmints.

Posted by: The Meditations of Miklos Aurelius at August 05, 2020 11:23 PM (QzkSJ)


I've been thinking about this a lot, due to my son's suicide last November. Trying to deal with not only his death, but the years leading up to it, trying to deal with his depression. Only in retrospect can I really understand the hell that we've been through. While we were going though it, our internal coping mechanisms shielded us from fully understanding how profoundly our lives were impacted. Looking back, we can't believe we (kind of) survived. I say "kind of" because, obviously "we" all didn't survive.

The past is behind us now, but we will always carry it forward with us. Like I said before, there will never be "closure".

However, I've determined that I can't let the past rob me of my future. I can't bring Average Son back to life, and I can't reclaim the lost years. Going forward, I can't allow the emotional devastation to take from me any of the days, months, or years I have remaining on this earth. To do this takes an act of will--or, rather, a thousand acts of will, every day. As Miklos said, "...claim the rest of your life." Literally: Stake. Your. Claim.

Anyway, sorry to ramble. I hope you find some insight & comfort, Insom; if not from this, then from all the other wise and caring Morons here on the AoSHQ. You're not alone.

I've been there! I know. I really know this.

But what I found out, years ago, is that passion with women of negotiable virtue is empty. Empty.

It is better to work at a relationship and build it. Or look for a Brit tourist that wants a transitory good time. Or find a double divorce with a tubal ligation that wants a partner. That yields better memories.

Bring commercial considerations into it, and its not the same.

Do you want me to write you a personal ad? I was rejected by a much higher class of women when I wrote my last one.

YMMV.

CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Gov. Steve Sisolak issued a proclamation to formally name racism as a public health crisis today.

"Institutional and systemic racism has gone on far too long in this country and in this State. Based on research, we are taking a proactive approach in joining fellow leaders around the country to declare racism as a public health crisis, " said Governor Steve Sisolak. "I am grateful to be joined by the Nevada Legislature in recognizing that racism manifests in measurable ways, including in public health. I look forward to working with Nevada leaders and the Office of Minority Health and Equity on this critical issue."

At your expense."



She spread her anger, hot as fire,
Through six thin foreign sheets or more.
Sent off that letter, wrote another
To her solicitor -- and mother.

Long story, but here is my quick takeaway lesson from my interpretation of the aforementioned Meditations

The past is unalterable, no matter how much you wish to change it.
What is real, and within your control, is the present, the now.
Therefore, live today in such a manner that tomorrow you will be proud of what you did yesterday!

I wish peace and healing on all here who are troubled, from this ONT you know you are not alone, and there are many here that wish you well.

With those feeble thoughts, I bid you all a good night and a better tomorrow!

740 WDS, nothing hurts more than betrayal and there is nothing that can be said to diminish that. But, I bl you have written of your husband's serious physical issues, the neuropathy/Charcot, and, perhaps, his generosity is bc this is something he can control, with which he can be useful. I'm not excusing his behavior, but trying to, hopefully, understand it. Lots of good advice from the male perspective given earlier; hoping for the best for you.

742 Well, maybe Malik is the one who lived in a hut:

Malik managed a foundation named after his father, the Kenyan Barak H. Obama. In a telephone call shortly before the 2009 inauguration, the American president-elect "insisted I shut down the website and not continue with the foundation." If Malik continued with the idea, the president threatened "to cut me off."

In 2015, Malik Obama made an appeal on behalf of Aunt Hawa, living in poverty and working as a charcoal seller. The president told Malik he was "broke." Aunt Zeituni Onyango died penniless in 2014 and Malik Obama appealed for $20,000 to transport her remains back to Kenya. The president said that was "too much" and ponied up only $5,000.

As Malik Obama explains, "I don't understand how somebody who claimed to be a relative or a brother can behave the way that he's behaving, be so cold and ruthless, and just turn his back on the people he said were his family."

Malik Obama also charged that Dreams from My Father, was inaccurate and freighted with "embellishments." For example, Malik's grandfather was not detained and beaten by British troops in 1949, and that is hardly the book's only problem.

What Heinlein story affected you the most?



====

Starship Troopers and Moon is a Harsh Mistress formed my political philisophy.







Posted by: Vlad the Impaler, whittling away like mad at August 05, 2020 11:35 PM (d6mdH)


----------------------------------------
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress is probably my favorite novel of all time. Hooked me on Heinlein, and like you, shaped my politics to a great degree.
Even if you've read it a dozen times, I recommend checking out the unabridged audiobook version on Audible. The voice acting is fantastic and brought the story to life even more than reading it did. I usually don't like the audio version of books I've already read, but this is one of only two (other is "World War Z") where the audiobook version is as good, possibly better.

825 I read two and half of the Game of Thrones series. I hate Martin, not for the way he writes (he does this well) but because he is a joyless troll. There is no happiness in his world. All is darkness, evil and betrayal.

As I have gotten older, it is harder not to think about the author of the story behind what I am reading. This has led me to stop reading various novels when the red flags are thrown as the author gets too far into the weeds of what are obviously his or her personal peccadillo(s?)

Never watched Martin's TV show, although I enjoyed everyone's horrified reaction to the final season.

Much leaner, for one thing. Bison meat can be had for $10/lb. at some Walmarts and probably for a bit more at Whole Foods, and a pound will yield 2 meals for 2 people. BWW runs $15-20 for an order of wings and God knows what else they have on their menu.

There is no way to critique that statement with anything less than this person is severely, grossly stupid. Nothing else explains it. Nothing. Somewhere in the recesses of even a leftist's brain, there would be a flicker of thought indicating that no police is a bad thing. But for hopeless dumbasses like Johns, the light is out.

I desperately want Arlinda Johns to live in [pick any locale] without any police. And have her be forced to live there the rest of her life with no escape from her incredible, incandescent ignorance.

946 "We've been in this legal battle for four years, and we aren't giving up this fight. As the environmental review process gets underway in the months ahead, we look forward to showing why the Dakota Access Pipeline is too dangerous to operate."

--- Standing Rock Sioux Tribe Chairman Mike Faith


I do not know much about this pipeline issue, but it was interesting to watch the Modern Marvels episode on the Alaska Pipeline recently.

https://bit.ly/3a2D0Kq

Construction was delayed for years, because of enviromentalists. It was only finally started, because of the oil/gasoline shortage due to the OPEC embargo.

The episode goes through all the politics at the time, all the amazing engineering successes regarding the construction of the pipeline, all the amazing hard work men put forth in constructing the pipeline, all the features put in to allow for the wildlife around the pipeline to survive and thrive and finishes up with noting that all the predictions by the environmentalists of chaos and doom regarding destroying nature never came to pass.

Just goes to show that the only reason any credence at all is given to left-wing activists of any kind is because we live in comfortable times. When hard, uncomfortable times come, we disregard the ignorant left-wing activists and turn to those who actually know how to fix problems (scientists, engineers, physicists, etc.)

I'm not shocked. The staff at the location closest to me seem overqualified for mopping floors; the prices are ridiculous; and if alcohol consumption is their mainstay, well, people have had to do take-out booze for months now. Plus LaToya the Destroya has recently decreed that bars can't even offer that. I don't know if that applies to restaurants too -- but since she seems determined to kneecap the entire industry, I wouldn't be surprised.

Hezbollah kept three metric tons of ammonium nitrate, the explosive thought to be behind the mega blast in Beirut this week, in a storehouse in London, until MI5 and the London Metropolitan Police found it in 2015.

The Lebanese terrorist group also stored hundreds of kilograms of ammonium nitrate in southern Germany, which were uncovered earlier this year.

The Iran-backed terrorists kept the explosive in thousands of ice packs in four properties in northwest London, according to a report in The Telegraph last year. The ice pack deception tactic was used in Germany, as well.

1013 I think he got in a fight with Neal Bortz over Fair Tax.

Yep. Neal Boortz is a fan of making every merchant an uncompensated employee of the FedGov.

He likes the idea that tens of thousands of jurisdictions, with their own time period, forms and levels of detail all have the ability to make demands on the merchant and fine/jail the merchant on any missed detail.

That, and giving the FedGod a Sales Tax to add to all of the other taxes and fees they levy.

I just love the cognitive dissonance of the "small government Libertarian" when they propose even more taxes and onerous means to employ them.

Not only do I have to get my doctor involved in this -- which prob. means a trip to his office -- but their suggestions include a plexiglas shield around my desk, a bullet I already dodged.

I read last night that it was because the Trump campaign account posted a video from a Fox News Channel segment where they stated that children are "almost immune" to COVID-19.

Has the reason changed now? Now it's because of HCQ "misinformation"?

Also, aren't children pretty much immune to COVID-19? How is that "misinformation"?

I guess it is inconvenient information to get out to the public for all those whiney-ass teachers who don't want to go back to work in a few weeks.
