The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

But I'm a science fiction writer and that means I can tell the difference between "thought experiments" and "real things." Alas, the same cannot be said of corporate America.Cory Doctorow

Quote II

“Guns are flying off the shelves and now bullet-resistant vests. Bring back cast iron tubs. That’s where mothers used to put their kids to sleep to deflect the bullets.”Retired NYPD police sergeant Joe Giacalone


Quote III

Supposedly, summer vacation happens because that's when the kids are home from school, although having the kids home from school is no vacation. And supposedly the kids are home from school because of some vestigial throwback to our agricultural past. P. J. O'Rourke


Quote IV

“These all seem to be separate, independent incidents, but horrific and tragic that we have this much violence and potential for that much loss of life in our city,”

“One extremely violent night in the city of Cincinnati,” Neudigate said. “Why? That’s going to be the question.” Assistant Police Chief Paul Neudigate


Why? If you don't know you don't deserve to be assistant Police Chief. Just a hint. It has nothing to do with an inanimate object but the people who pick up that object.

Quote V

“Over the past several months, I have opened my ears, mind, and heart and it has opened my eyes to see how wrong I was and for that I am sorry,” “This systematic (sic) racism is not going away unless we ALL work on it by working on ourselves and those around us. It’s time for everyone to do their part to help end this system.”Kelly Stafford


F*ck the NFL.

The State of California's government could screw up a one car funeral. It's looking like they legislated Uber and Lyft out of service in their state.

NoNo Uber and Lyft rides in California? After a judge rejected the companies’ effort to delay an order that they classify drivers as employees, it seems inevitable. Uber and Lyft have until August 20th to comply with the order. But the companies have said they will need to go dark in the Golden State in order to retool their business.

The judges may not have the last word. Uber and Lyft are counting on California’s notoriously mercurial voters to help them circumvent AB5, which went into effect in January and makes it more difficult for companies to use independent contractors. Uber and Lyft built their respective businesses on the concept of using freelance drivers who aren’t eligible for traditional benefits like health insurance and paid leave.

Hmmm.......When you have a good idea, do you implement it or perhaps run it by another person to see if it is good?

A restaurant in central China has apologised for encouraging diners to weigh themselves and then order food accordingly.

The policy was introduced after a national campaign against food waste was launched.

The beef restaurant in the city of Changsha placed two large scales at its entrance this week.

It then asked diners to enter their measurements into an app that would then suggest menu items accordingly.

Signs reading "be thrifty and diligent, promote empty plates" and "operation empty plate" were pinned up.

Probably not a good idea in the "Food deserts of America".

Death wish? Brave? Stupid? What possesses Antifa idiots to got to the biker rally in Sturgis, SD?

According to video footage that has emerged, it appears a tiny group of Antifa and Black Lives Matter extremists almost got their world rocked to pieces either last weekend or this weekend at the 350,000+ strong Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

One of the two video clips that emerged shows Antifa/BLM activists holding up signs in the middle of the rally as police protect them from the tens of thousands of bikers.

Sandia National Laboratories is a multimission laboratory managed and operated by National Technology and Engineering Solutions of Sandia, LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary of Honeywell International, Inc., for the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Nuclear Security Administration under contract DE-NA-0003525

After reading this, they are pretty damn un-American if you ask me.

Last year, Sandia National Laboratories—which designs America’s nuclear weapons—hosted a 3-day reeducation camp for “white males,” with the goal of exposing their “white privilege” and deconstructing “white male culture.”

I’ve obtained exclusive whistleblower documents revealing that last year, the national laboratory sent its white male executives to the La Posada luxury resort to undergo a mandatory training called “White Men’s Caucus on Eliminating Racism, Sexism, and Homophobia in Organizations.”

In the opening thought-work session, the trainers demand that the men make a list of associations about white male culture. The trainers write “white supremacists,” “KKK,” “Aryan Nation,” “MAGA hat,” “privileged,” and “mass killings.”

The trainers insist that white males must “work hard to understand” their “white privilege,” “male privilege,” and “heterosexual privilege.” They claim that white men benefit from positive stereotypes that “far outweigh the Tim McVeighs and Ted Kaczynskis of white maleness

If I had $110,000 to spend on a set of wheels. This would not be it. Your mileage may vary.

Minis are probably some of the most recognizable cars on the road, even though they’re not all that common anywhere anymore. Most of the Minis you see today are probably driven by enthusiasts rather than commuters, and some of the most extreme versions are currently being made by David Brown Automotive in England.

The Mini Remastered, as it’s called, is said to be the last word in classic Minis. And at nearly $110,000, it had better be.

(Full disclosure: David Brown Automotive invited me to have a spin in the Mini Remastered on a sunny London afternoon. I met them at a fancy hotel by Battersea Park, was given some fizzy water, and thrown the keys to a manual and an automatic-transmission car for a few hours of play.)

First, you may be thinking that the David Brown in David Brown Automotive is a play on the David Brown of Aston Martin. Not so, though you could be forgiven for making the assumption.

I believe this fellow, Kevin Nicks, should be made an Honorary Moron.

Not content with already holding the record for building the world’s fastest shed, a gardener from Oxfordshire has created a souped-up wheelbarrow to go in it. Kevin Nicks, 55, believes he’s set a new speed record after clocking 44 miles per hour on the back of his wheelbarrow earlier today. He’s called it the ‘Barrow of Speed’ and thinks he can go even faster when a Guinness World Records representative comes to verify the accolade in six weeks time. His custom-built contraption, which uses a moped engine, was competing at a Straightliners event at Elvington Airfield in North Yorkshire.

Mmmmm. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

OMG the meme is finally real!

Via New York Upstate:

Craving bacon at 3 a.m.? Now you don’t have to wait for the store to open in one Upstate New York town.

Saratoga Living reports Oscar’s Smokehouse, a family-owned specialty meat and cheese shop in Warrensburg, N.Y., has launched a new refrigerated vending machine featuring hickory bacon, 3-year-old cheddar cheese, smoked pork chops, sausage, and more. The prices are the same as they are inside the store, giving customers a 24/7, contactless option for meats after stores, including Oscar’s, reduced hours due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It should. An enthusiasm gap doesn't always pick the winner (see, Beto), but it is always a good indication. These boat parades are something else.

44 I recall a story years ago at some award show (probably Grammy's) about Aretha Franklin filling in for Pavarotti. Pavarotti was late get to the Award show. The producers, in a panic, were trying to figure out what they are going to do. It's a live event on TV. Gotta do something. Anyway, somehow they saw Franklin and brought the song that Pavarotti was going to do. She looks at it and agree's to sing it. She goes out and nails it. It's an Opera song of course but Aretha is not an Opera singer. I remember actually watching that. She was outstanding. She didn't try to sing it as an opera singer. She sang it as an R&B/Soul singer. It worked. Talent is talent. Wish I could remember what year that was. In the 90s maybe.

If cops start getting prosecuted, while rioters skate, I think that that is the red line that will cause Portland cops to walk off the job.

If that happens, Portland has a problem - the suburban sheriffs won't go into Portland, and the state police has made it clear that they aren't going to send their troopers back into an environment where they can be assaulted with impunity.

Which leaves the National Guard. The Soros DA has been on the job just a couple of weeks - we'll see if he makes a decision that will almost certainty require the mass deployment of the Guard in Portland.

75 24 Kelly Stafford, the wife of Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, has apologized to former 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick for her 2017 remarks criticizing his national anthem protests over police brutality.


Excellent. Now all you must do is to kneel, wrap you lips around Kaepernick's ungrateful schlong and you have completed your journey.

Just because our corrupt media decides to provide hysterical coverage 24/7 every time a black person dies at the hands of somebody who is not black, that is not proof of systemic racism. It's only proof of the systemic idiocy that passes itself off as journalism in this country.

Posted by: hogmartin at August 16, 2020 10:09 PM (t+qrx)

Well the pic isn't that good, and its hard to see a lot of things. If i was a betting man, I would say it was based on a sportster, which would have a right side chain drive. The front frame down tubes are very sportster-ish. It also appears to be a hardtail, soooo, without a really good pic I'm thinking its a sportster with a hard tail weld on section. On the other hand, it may have a frame stretch, so it might be an entire aftermarket frame, or a frame modded with a stretch and then a rear section welded on. I have done sportsters all of those ways, so every section of that bike looks familiar, but without a good pic you just can't tell. Right side chain and the frame front down tubes scream sportster. Baker makes a trans that allows you to built a ride side drive big twin, but this bike don't look like those.

2) To prosecute the cops, leading them to walk out, because the DA is an idiot.

2) To prosecute the cops, leading them to walk out, because Soros wants the cops to walk out, and the Guard called in.

If voters were indeed afraid of voicing their support for the president, Mr. Winston said, other numbers in the poll would reflect that, like seeing an uptick in the percentage of undecided voters rather than a rise in support for Mr. Biden.

Or, alternatively, Trump voters are refusing to respond to your poll.

147 "If cops start getting prosecuted, while rioters skate, I think that that is the red line that will cause Portland cops to walk off the job."

They should've walked off already, tended to their own, and expedited their exit to precincts/cities where their work is appreciated.

If I'm a city administrator, I would want to hire these cops. They aren't abandoning anything. They're quitting because they cannot be the professionals they are and do the job for which they trained. I want people who want to do their jobs.

And the city gets what it deserves. One hates to be callous, but this situation didn't pop up overnight. The citizens have been incubating chaos for years via their voting and support. Years.

166 It seems as if you were gonna try to get society to snap, you would promote some alleged horribly grievous act to incite a portion of it.

Then perhaps you would sprinkle in some paid, trained anarchists to assault people at random, destroy property and make everyday life miserable.

You would tear down all avenues of escapism by eliminating all forms of entertainment, sports, music, theatre, recreation, etc.

You would attack the shared centers of social gathering such as bars, schools, churches, weddings, funerals and force the people to interact online, where you would ply them with images of violence, destruction and desperation.

You would foment fear, playing upon the biggest one of all, death, as well making them fearful of each other, to view each other as disease spreading rats and cockroaches.

You would humiliate them by forcing them to don attire that was dehumanizing and took away their ability to emote and send friendly signals to each other.

You would ostracize them from businesses and even begin to take away the sanctity of their home.

You would destabilize them financially and take away any sense of security.

You would destroy their shared culture and history as a people that united them.

You would force closure of businesses to create supply chain shortages and create unease.

You wound pound them non-stop with further messages of further necessary steps to demoralize and frustrate them.

That's how you would intentionally try to destabilize a society.

But if you have faith in the Creator and were wise to what they were trying to do, you would laugh in their face and say "I'm not taking the bait".

I'm not taking the bait, I'm just preparing to deal with those that do, however.

Sportsters had a chain drive. Or that it was on the right side, for that

Posted by: hogmartin at August 16, 2020 10:35 PM (t+qrx)

Well, to get in deeper, sportsters were chain up 1990, and somewhere around 1991 they got the belt drive and the 5 speed tranny. this motor "looks" like it has EVO rocker boxes, and the evo motor sportster came out in 1986, so you had 4-5 years of chain drive, soooo it could be an earlier evo sporty with a chain drive, or they went back to a chain so it would work with this frame which might have been too narrow in the back to use the belt. They were always right side drive though.

I have a relative who worked for a big-city police department (not Portland).

Their cynical slogan was "chaos means cash" - cops on riot duty are almost invariably getting overtime - time and a half or double time.

People are screaming insults and throwing things at the cops, and the cop is thinking "if this riot goes on for a couple of days more, I can get that new boat".

213 people naturally put their fingers on the trigger when they pull a gun out. You see this in every film, even by those who should know better. I saw this most recently in the tv show Last Man Standing. The lead is a big time conservative and he should know better since his business in the show is guns and outdoor gear. I also recall the cop who shot himself in the leg at a school while talking about how dangerous guns were and only skilled professionals such as he should handle them.

You can train yourself to never put your finger on the trigger until the moment you mean to destroy. Sure accidents happen, but 99 percent of the time, no finger on the trigger, no AD.

But if its at the point where all the police precincts have been sacked, and Antifa is going to the houses of people they don't like to assault and kill them, it's going to be difficult to evade responsibility.

--------------------------------

I was thinking about this earlier and I think you're right (maybe not about the tail, but other stuff). The Wu Flu has forced people away from toxic sports and away from toxic Hollywood entertainment, encouraged many of them to shop closer to home to avoid greater hassles, caused many to exercise their Second Amendment rights for the first time, caused families to spend more time with each other, reduced frivolous spending to some degree, made people think about what they would do if the stores were all empty and hopefully spurred them to prepare for such things in the future, and perhaps most importantly, allowed parents a peek behind the curtain to see what their kids are REALLY being taught in school.

Hell, if we can keep the country from going full-blown Thunderdome after November, we may actually see some areas of our culture in which the Great Xiphylis Epidemic has a net positive result.

they say they have their ways. It is similar to radio and tv ratings. Most figure no one knows what they watch or listen to, and those people are likely right. But still these ratings control if a show lasts and how much it can charge for advertisements. Like I said, the companies that conduct the polls will tell you why they have value. I personally don't recall ever being polled. Sure there are those fake mailing "polls" that ask for money in the end, but those are not real polls.

Without knowing your exact history or circumstances, it would be difficult for me to pinpoint it exactly for you.

Common practices would be testing out of the blue chicks that you previously have been intimate with, or if you are bereft of those, even ones that indicated an interest in the past.

Compliment women in your social circle on how good they are looking with observations such as "have you lost weight" "are you working out or something" "did you change your hair".

Find excuses to stop by and see women you find attractive in their environment when you think you are looking snazzy and mention how well everything is going for you. Women have a natural tendency to either want to glom onto someone who is positive or conversely find ways t destroy a man that is happy. Either way, you will garner their attention.

Make sure your contact info is as in as many possible feminine hands as possible, business cards are a less creepy way that matchbooks or cocktail napkins.

If all else fails, negotiate yourself a discount by telling them you are only paying $10 in these uncertain times.

303 Occasionally, people can completely surprise you:
I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath

Scared to rock the boat and make a mess

So I sit quietly

Agree politely



I guess that I forgot I had a choice

I let you push me past the breaking point

I stood for nothing

So I fell for everything

304 210 I think Kate Brown will refuse to activate the OR Nat'l Guard, and try to force Trump to do it.

Unfortunately,
I think he will just let Portland burn with the the note that Governor
Brown has full right as Governor to do what she wishes with the National
Guard. I just hope he adds that she does not answer to him, but to the
voters of Oregon and the businesses that operate and pay taxes there for
public services and security.

308 May I offer that a campaign that is crying about mailboxes being removed is not one that is confident in their 10 point lead in the polls.

Also, since much of the wailing is coming from the Dems in general, they are also not confident about their blue wave.

314 'Signs reading "be thrifty and diligent, promote empty plates" and "operation empty plate" were pinned up.

I seem to remember a kiddie TV show back in the 60's that promoted a "clean plate club" to get kids to eat all the stuff their Moms served them.'

When we were kids, if we didn't eat much, parents said "You kids eat like birds." If we ate too much, they said "You kids eat like there's no tomorrow." If we objected to having all the potatoes dumped on the vegetables dumped on the meat, they'd say "It all mixes in your stomach anyway." If we objected to always being given the burnt toast slices, they'd say "The black stuff is good for you."

This is why I am the seething, resentful, malevolent wretch you have come to know.

You need to start reading stories about people who have overcome bad things. Very few people have anything approaching whatever it is you think is a normal life.

You had a crazy bitch for a mother, but at least she didn't boil one of your eyes out one day when you were 6 years old because you weren't bringing home enough money from your begging job. And when that didn't work, sell you off to the local pimp when you turned 8.

334 I see everyone is giving Insom advice. I might as well join in.

1) Always be in a good mood. Even if you aren't, hide it. No one actually cares how you feel, 90% of the women you meet are absorbed in their own life (this is really 90% of everyone, but you are trying to meet women)

2) Learn to flirt. There is a subtle line between coming off as creepy and flirting. A light touch of flirting will get their attention. Once you have that, then women will let you know they are interested in you. There are actually books on how to flirt, you can read up on good techniques. I can't over emphasize this is NOT a pick up line.

335 Many people were not blessed with mom's that could cook. Some are so used to bad cooking that when they encounter well made stuff, they are put off by it. I have been to Thanksgiving dinners held buy people who could buy anything but the ability to cook.

A lot of kids are picky eaters for one reason or the other. If it lasts longer in life, well, it is what it is. But in general I will be simpatico with the adventurous eater. So often that is someone more open to new ideas, experiences, travel, etc.

then again, it often turns out that a picky eater had reasons even if they didn't know it at the time. Many have health reason and certain foods don't work for them.

Hostages are taken to be used as weapons, and the threat is you comply or the hostage gets it. Portland and Oregon (and WA too) are all being used as weapons against Trump. They are tying to force him into a "unforced error" they can use against him.

Trump has shown a surprising ability to take away or deflect weapons. In this case I think he will let it play out because unlike Brown and Wheeler, he is in a position where he loses very little.

It sucks being a hostage, though.

I am not giving advice. For one reason, I don't really have standing. For another, I doubt it will stick in most instances. But one thing I do know is no one wants to be around a sad sack. Not even a sad sack wants to be around another sad sack. Most people are attracted to confidence. This goes even more for women as traditionally they want someone who can provide and protect.

I know you are being snarky, but actually I used a mask thing tonight.

I had a couple of girls that work with me send me a selfie of the two of them without masks and then another with masks on at an event they were working.

I made sure to tell them how I liked the mask-free picture better because they are far to pretty to be hiding those smiles.

Then, because I'm goofy and inappropriate, I told them not to become Muslim brides because they would deny the world their beauty.

You have to plant those seeds in their mind. Not all of them will sprout, but if you keep at it, eventually some do.

I mean really the same things that work in a marriage, work in dating.

It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to tell the wife she is hot, especially if you never tell her that.

368 366 It just so happens I'm reading a book which lists the drugs the coroner found in Elvis' system when he died: Valium, mixed with "significant" amounts of codeine, Quaaludes, ethinamate (a sedative-hypnotic), Demorol and morphine, another tranquiller called Placidyl and an "unconfirmed" barbiturate, reportedly phenobarbital.

371 So what will it take for Trump to declare Insurrection in Oregon and take control?

And do Brown and Mayor Ted go to jail?

Posted by: LeftCoast Dawg


I don't think he should. If the mayor and governor want to let a bunch of animals run wild, that's their responsibility, and the responsibility of the voters who put them in office. The people of Portland and Oregon have to understand that there are consequences to putting leftwing democrats in office. Actions have consequences.

People and businesses need to vote with their feet. Then the tax base will drop. As long as the citizens put up with this ridiculous crap, why should Trump take any risks trying to fix it. Let them turn Portland to shit.

Every Covid - HCQ study, 73 so far.


100% PrEP (Pre-Exposure prophylaxis)
100% PEP (Post-Exposure prophylaxis)
100% Early Treatment began - recovery
60% Late Treatment began - recovery
73% All Early and Late combined

73 studies (42 peer reviewed)
HCQ as pre & post exposure prophylaxis & early treatment.

Global HCQ studies. PrEP, PEP, and early treatment studies show high effectiveness, while late treatment shows mixed results.

According to the results of these 73 studies, and counting, is that anyone who takes HCQ and NOT YET infected, will recover at a 100% rate. Same exists for anyone who has been detected infected by Covid19 in EARLY stages.

Yes, we are being lied to and manipulated.

Pass this on to everyone, especially those who are brainwashed.

This is the most comprehensive data set that exists about HCQ and Covid.

***

In 1944 when the German coup started, the plotters captured Goebbels . They decided to NOT shoot him, and instead give him a civilized trial, as civilized people do.


Goebbels got in touch with Hitler and the central German authorities and managed to stop the coup cold. And it is this moment that led to the coup failing.


So long story short, if the civil war ever comes, don't worry about optics, don't worry about trials. Learn from the failures of Operation Valkyrie.

Recent elections have had bundles of mail in ballots received.

Expect more bundles of ballots without postmarks.

391 Disclaimer: this was not a pickup line. I was genuinely just trying to strike up a conversation in a uniquely humorous way.

Some years ago at a goth club (it was actually industrial night, not my preference, but I can live with it). There was an attractive woman a few feet away at the bar. She had on a jacket that had large spikes running down the back. I got her attention and then: "Excuse me, but has anyone ever said you remind them of stegosaurus." Turns out she was going through a nasty divorce and when she realized why I'd asked that, she laughed and we ended up hanging out the rest of the night.

Watched about 40 minutes. Interesting narrative, but the constant typos were distracting.

For instance on the alleged program where they plan psyops, one of the top tabs says ENGAGEMENTST

On the PowerPoint showing diversion of data, the top of the right column says MILIONS instead of MILLIONS, and ECT instead of ETC.

There were a number of others, as well; almost any page with text seemed to have one.

467 Obama pushed his real agenda* in 2008? Uh, no, not even close.

He ran as a Midwestern moderate Dem - literally. Balanced budgets, no "public option" and other hedges on health "insurance" destruction, on and on. None of it was the least bit plausible, of course, but you might have noticed the country is dumbed down beyond recognition, unserious, and pathetically guilt-ridden.

And he and Clinton were two of the most buffoonish ineffective "leaders" in our history (fortunately, in some ways). They both inflicted enormous damage on their parties. Clinton would have lost as badly as Mondale or Carter if, purely coincidentally, the internet bubble didn't come along when it did.

In a small number of elections, the candidates are not differentiated along this axis, but in most, they are. And when they are, the person with the advantage in that area wins.

I refuse to say what it is because if the Democrats ever figure it out they will use it. No one else has ever noticed it - not that I've seen, anyway. And Democrats obviously haven't figured it out yet or they would have run somebody else against Trump.

In the last 10 years I've more or less given up and worked on myself. Does it help? Sure. It also doesn't hurt that I've seen close up the fallout of some relationships that didn't work out.

But I still feel sad, frustrated, angry and deprived about never having a woman in my life sometimes, although I know that I probably shouldn't.

If you act like a victim you will probably attract ladies looking
for a project, think of house flipping, the challenge will keep their
interest for awhile, then, either they will tire of trying to fix you
or they will find a more interesting project.
Goes
both ways, some fellows don't believe there is some other guy out there
that's "tired of her shit" and just have to find out the hard way.



Most ladies, at least that I know, don't like a crowded bed. Just
like I'd think most guys get tired of hearing about a gal's old flames,flings and exs.
Lugging around old baggage may be good exercise, but, it's a warning flag to the opposite sex.

There's one professor whose model has correctly predicted every presidential election but two in the last hundred years (the two exceptions were Bush/Gore 2000 and Nixon/Kennedy 1960, both of which were very close... 47.9%-48.4% and 49.72%-49.55% respectively).

His model says Trump wins handily.

My gut says Trump wins handily.

The Dems are acting like they know that Trump wins handily. They don't know whether to shit or go blind.

I know he's depressed, but he's also got envy issues. And he's envying something that probably isn't real for most people. And whoever suggested he start doing some vigorous exercising is also right.

I still consider it a miracle I found the one I did. I have to say - and this is with full apologies to the ettes - I find American women on the whole to be spoiled entitled selfish assholes. I think that's at least part of the problem decent American men have these days trying to meet women.

But you have to remember that the vast majority of women I come into contact with are well at home in Libtardia, so I am judging this mostly on lefty women. I am not a woman-hater by any stretch. In fact I love them. This is just my honest observation.

I was fortunate enough, by some work of heavenly fate, to meet a sassy British lass. It's not always golden - and sometimes you want to murder each other - but we got lucky.

I've been trying to lose weight and haven't even tried to meet or attract women since I put on so much weight.

Losing weight is hard to do. It doesn't help that my entire lifestyle is built around food. I can completely relate to Dom DeLuise's character in "Fatso." THAT'S what real people are dealing with when they try to lose weight: changing the entire lifestyle, and having to learn to deal with it while everyone else keeps right on with their old, food-based lifestyle.

No, I was just always me. I just never pretended to be something I wasn't. Shit, there were times I was pretending not to be what I was, because I didn't want to taint things, because I learned early that just because some chick is hanging on your stage tonight doesn't mean they won't be hanging on somebody else's tomorrow. Chicks in my circles used it as a bragging right, sooo I decided not to give them the ammo and see if it was me they were interested in or some other thing. Well that really didn't work either, because then you get "why didn;t you tell me??!!" type of shit, and why didn't I trust them enough blah blah, and even if I lied and told them I rolled hoses at a garden center I still "looked" like an asshole metal guitar player. I decided fuck it, I am what I am and let the cards fall where they were, and just zipped along on my mission (like J-rod above said I did), hung my "I brake for nobody" sign, and whoever came along for the ride, fuck it. I did watch carefully for the fakes though, and damn there were a lot of those. In the end I just was being me. The one I found looked me over and said yeah he isn't going to change or be anything else. That was key, I couldn't be molded.

I've said Trump wins handily since his first SOTU and I think they've known it since then. I was pretty sure before that, and I was equally pretty sure he was going to be Hillary. Also, my own model predicted he'd beat Hillary but I had a little less confidence in it then and I was terrified of the cheating.

531 Edina, thanks.

Yes, I decided a while back that it was "never too late to have a good childhood," and I do some things that could be considered childish (like doing a lot of collecting of things I enjoy), to fill the void. Is it the most healthy thing ever? Probably not. But is it better than being angry and depressed 24/7 that I have no woman in my life? Definitely, at least IMHO.

I also have a great counselors which helps a lot.

And I had some tough love right here at the ONT a few years ago from MisHum and others, when I made the mistake of going so far as to actually name a woman who burned me in the past. I was told never to do that again. I figured I should go further and just stop dewelling on it here, and I think that has helped keep me from dwelling on it so much in other spots as well.

Finally, I would advise you: I know Insom can be annoying sometimes, but please go easy on him. I've been where he is and still return there now and then. It's tough.

534 If you (a man) want a romantic relationship with a woman, you need to figure out what kind of woman that is. That means, you need to figure yourself out. In most every really romantic couple I've ever known, it didn't matter whether the man was handsome (I'm not talking about poor hygiene/health habits-type not handsome). The guy had something about him that he loved to do, was otherwise generally happy when you factor out the no-woman factor, and found a girl who shared his big interest and enjoyed being in his company (including only his company). The sex naturally follows. I saw this particularly in the goth and period dance scenes. Usually they "look" natural together but I've seen quite unbalanced couples where you might think "why is he/she with her/him?" The answer is the difference between romance and stroking your ego.

536 ..., I'm happy for you, glad you found someone great, and thanks for your advice and response as well.

I pretty much agree with you. I feel that two major hurdles for me to get past are: (1) I need to lose weight to make myself more physically attractive, and (2) I need to get out of SoCal so I can meet better mentally adjusted women.

It also would not hurt for me to finally make, save, and come into some actual money. I don't think I need to be rich, but I need to do better than I'm doing now.

In the meantime, I keep telling myself: when you're really ready to make the changes, then you'll be far more ready, emotionally, physically, psychologically, etc etc, to make a relationship work.

Posted by: qdpsteve at August 17, 2020 01:22 AM (L2ZTs)

Same for cities, but...

This rot scares me. It's the result of a decades-long effort. The edifices are still upright, the roads are still sealed, the institutions of family and education are still putatively valued, but the civilization is weak and incohesive. A good hard kick from an outsider (China, Iran) will knock it all down.

It only marginally satisfies me that they asked for it.

And I posted above about my psychotic friend. It's a lifelong illness. What I see in my friend so closely parallels the delusions of the left I can't even tell you. We call them mentally ill -- it's literally true. I feel like doing a psycho-historical study on mobs who were fueled by angry delusions. The fishwives who tried to murder Marie Antoinette in her bed come to mind. What became of them once a new and contradictory reality broke?

After the massive growing database proving the HCQ effectiveness against Covid19, can doctors (or politicians) who deny a patient the option of taking HCQ be charged with murder, or at least manslaughter when the patient dies?

It seems logical to me. The information is readily available, and yet, they deny HCQ use because of political nonsense.

I know Insom is a stellar individual. I know he's depressed, and in addition to being clinically depressed, I think his nature is just worrisome in general. I would imagine that made him an excellent husband and provider. And then he got fucked over. On top of a bad childhood.

Raise your hand if that's your story as well. I bet there are dozens of guys here with the same basic story. We know Insom's and Pepe's because they can't rise above it. Probably not their fault, but at the same time, they don't seem to be even remotely trying to.

The rest of us/you don't dwell on it. How many people here have buried their children, for Gods sake.

Think of rickl, with cancer, just to name one. Never a whine. Hugo the Chavez, Asheville Robert, so many of us, and their spouses. People here have overcome many things, and that's just the few we know about.

We all want to help Insom, but he's got to help himself, too. And he's been better. It must be frightening to not know why it happens. But he's got to keep fighting, not sink back into it.

Its a real motherfucker to find out your life is a lie. Thats why I'm real big on saying live for yourself and to hell what others have planned for you, because your life is YOUR life, not theirs. You don't need to live somebody else's plans for your life. On the upside, because your life IS your life you can pick up the pieces, tell the appropriate people to kiss your fucking ass and do whatever the hell YOU want. End of story, its that simple.

557 I remember many years ago there was a newspaper article that proclaimed the DC area was the best place in the country for a single person to find a mate. The argument was that there were more single 20s and 30s folk there than anywhere else. This is why the line about lies, damn lies, and statistics is so famous. You don't have to be a rocket surgeon to see the fallacy in the claim. One could argue that it is the worst area because so many are single later in life (at the time). That area is the worst because most women there are interested in their careers, power, etc, and not men.

I was in the deep South while pursuing higher education and that was the first time I heard a woman say she was in school for an MRS degree. I had no idea what she was talking about. Then I figured it out. There are places that are better than others. Sure we are all the same t.m. but really we are not. Some places are better if you want to meet someone or even just have a fun relationship.

Society says people should couple, it is everywhere. If you go to a travel site and try to book a hotel, the default is two people. If you go to any destination, it is much more common to see two people traveling together than to see one on his own. My point is not that anyone should feel bad for being alone, it happens in life and many go through it. But by nature we are meant to couple and still that is the standard. It doesn't matter if you are country or rock n' roll. Cliche or not, there is someone out there for most everyone.

It is a mistake to get too down. Everyone has issues that they think are extraordinary. Sure some have it better than others but you can always find someone who has gone through worse. If things are not working out, then try something else. Because if you open your eyes you will see most find a partner and someone to experience life with. It is out nature to do this.

"Can a Christian date a Catholic?"

Posted by: qdpsteve at August 17, 2020 01:40 AM (L2ZTs)

Fifty years ago, that question would not have been considered wacky. Today there are so few Christians that it would be foolish for Christians to not have common cause.

I still consider it a miracle I found the one I did. I have to say - and this is with full apologies to the ettes - I find American women on the whole to be spoiled entitled selfish assholes. I think that's at least part of the problem decent American men have these days trying to meet women.

577 Wow! On Southwest, $91 and $95 for the round trip.

And I'm okay with Motel 6, so that's $67 per night in Dallas.

(67*3) + 91 + 95 = ... dang Common Core math... $387. Dang, this thing is doable!

time over the past several years to really learn and recognize that.

You can't dwell in the past. It becomes a chain. In my friend's case he just kept going back to how those around him conspired to screw him, and how doing it right didn't do shit for him, and he went insane trying to figure out the puzzle. I told him there is no puzzle, just total assholes around you locking you into a system you can't beat. 250K for divorce lawyers is not going to mean a win. You got a dick and no tits, the courts says fuck you. His wife was a nasty bitch, as nasty as you can imagine. She actually convinced him a few years after their seperation that if he he ditched the new girlfriend that he acquired they might get back together. It was all bullshit, he ditched the new chick who actually was his soulmate and had him flying high, and his bitch wife laughed and divorced him anyway. She isolated him, then dragged him through the coals.
Get out of the system, you can't fight it, but you can erase it. When a brawl starts in a bar, you leave, you don't hang around trying to figure it out.

I have a small family. Only really ever got along with my dad and he unfortunately died young. I'm the youngest.

Rest of my family tried very hard to stop/interfere with my relationship (with future wife) and were awful about it in ways you can and can't imagine. I stood firm and never had any intentions of doing otherwise. Best decision I ever made.

I feel sorry for those who let others run/fuck with their life. It's easy to do. Jane Austen actually wrote a book about it.

I think I'm finally figuring it out. I've been giving serious thought to going for a nice local job, and a few months ago (I think it was early June) I found two opportunities.

Only problem: they were BOTH at local community colleges. Meanwhile, cancel culture is raging.

I told myself, look Steve, you can go for those opportunities, but even if you get the job, you're going to have a yuge target on your back for all kinds of abuse, just for being white, male and straight.

I finally decided it's not worth it and let them go. And now I'm glad I did.

In my friend's case his ex bitch of a wife kept holding the kids over his head. I said look, one is almost 18, the other will be 18 in a few years. It will go fast and legally she won't be able to do shit. Stop pissing money away on lawyers, step away, fuck it all. He kept trying and trying because he was wired to think he "had" to fight for the kids. I said yeah, noble, but cocksucker jersey courts will never LET you win. The only winning move is to not play the fucking game. He didn't listen, and it cost him big. It eventually killed him.

Posted by: qdpsteve at August 17, 2020 01:53 AM (L2ZTs)



Cancel any D/FW hotels, and aim instead for Corsicana, TX.

Or you're in for an hour or more commute, each way.

Fly in, grab rental car, drive 45 min/1 hr. South of the Metroplex. Check into hotel. Come join the Mo-Meet.

Do these things in that EXACT sequence. You won't want to leave the MoMeet mid-afternoon to go check into no damn hotel, anyway.

Fly in on Friday. Drive, then check into hotel. Drive to MoMeet site, join the "set up crew" for doings, and join for dinner and drinks.

Hotel, sleep, late wake up. Drive to Mo Meet mid-morning-ish. Prepare to be introduced to and shoot more guns that you ever imagined. And a sumptuous lunch.

By dinner, you'll be choking on gunsmoke, be recoil-crazed and wanting more. But alas, when the dinner bell rings, ALL shooty stops, and the festivities begin.

You'll be there into the wee hours.

Drive to hotel, sleep till alarm, and pray you make your flight on time.

THIS is what you do to take in the Texas Mo Meet.

Or you can just fly in on Saturday Morning, and miss huge amounts of the fun. Your choice, and the price differential is one hotel night and one rental car day.

Either way, you're eating and drinking for free.

(fwiw. There are no "fees" taken, nor "bucket passed" the Tx Mo Meet. Yet the tables of food are heavy laden, and the booze table groans under the strain of the many bottles thereon.

The coolers bulging with beers are beyond counting.

And no one pays a dime at the gate for admission.

Costs, such as they are, are borne by the giving, and the givers. And there is no audit of the delta between those who give, or consume.

Nor ever shall there be such, there.

I'd say you could take that to the bank. But we do NOT audit this. I think that was made clear.

He was a giver and for many years I was the recipient of all of his attention and generosity. Now we flash forward well past thirty years and our situation has changed so much. It is my turn to be the giver in the relationship now, he needs me so much, I am grateful that I have a chance to give back. I'm not saying that I don't have my moments where I'm angry or resentful, I do, but overall I feel good about things.

what you say is appreciated by the Horde. In many ways that is what a true relationship/marriage is about. It sounds funny or diminutive, but really it isn't. Part of marriage is that you will have someone to care for you when things go poorly. The alternative is to go through it alone, and many have had that experience.

I experienced something like what you are talking about. One family member cared for the other through countless maladies that were no ones fault over decades. The person who received the care was hurt because when her spouse fell ill, she was in no place to do much about it. There was a lot of guilt there, but for no good reason. Life will throw you a lot of curve balls and you can only do your best. But people can really be hard on themselves.

I am not philosopher or deep thinker. I have no answers to the difficulties of life. But from my experience, everyone will have the lows at some point. The key is to have as many highs as you can and to appreciate them for what they are.

rhomboid, after you reminded me, I hang my head in shame. I completely forgot about that garbage.

There is so much corruption identified now, that maybe it is just best to get in the middle of evil people and start shooting.

But make sure you register to be a member of the Democrat party first, so you'll be protected.

And good news, my two shipments of 5.56 and .40 arrived last week. A thousand of each. All brass casings. To add to the stocks. At about 35 cents a round for the .556, and 41 cents a round for the .40, delivered to the front porch.

I got lucky.

There is nothing on the internet right now that is even close to those prices.

647 exotic rounds are too expensive. It is absurd that .380 costs more than 9mm. I get the reason, but it still burns. I know many love the .40 but damn is it expensive. With modern ammo, the mainstays like .38, 9mm, and .45 will get you through.

people like what they like and can buy what they want. But if my only weapon was chambered in .45 GAP, I would reconsider that decision.

Posted by: Quint at August 17, 2020 03:18 AM (jHE7d)

648 With modern ammo, the mainstays like .38, 9mm, and .45 will get you through.



When I decided to get into handguns (.22's don't count) after a life of mostly shotgunning, I chose the .40 over the 9mm. That was 2012. Ammo cost maybe 10% more than 9mm. I liked the greater "punch" of the .40. The Federal HST had not been introduced yet.

Now don't get me wrong, I have 9mm, too. But probably 75% of my pistol, non-.22 ammo is .40.

Today, at least I can still buy some .40, cuz 9mm is like trying to buy a Christmas Tree in March.

Still, I have a couple k of 9mm. Little LCD begged for the XDM 9mm a couple of months ago, and so let him try to find food for it. He isn't getting mine. OK, I gave him a couple hundred rounds, but that's it. And I don't pay for the gas in his car, either.

651 I have never owned a .40. I do recall when it was the hottest thing ever. It was supposed to be the ultimate trade off between 9mm and .45. A lot of people love them and they obviously get the job done. But there have been quite a few detractors. Some say it is way too snappy and the ballistics are not a great trade off. In the end, you go with what you are confident in and train well. The .357 Sig is another round that was trying to solve a problem that either existed in reality or did not.

We know years ago the 9mm got some really bad press. The .38 had bad press out the wazoo. But modern defensive rounds have improved so much that even the .38 out of a short barrel can not be ignored. It is all about matching ammo with the weapon. In the end, you go with what you believe in, confidence and ability are the real factors.

652
I love my Springfield XD 40 service model, 4 inch barrel, mag holds 12 rounds. Easy to bring back to target after the shot. It just fits my hands.

The XD 40 SC, short barrel double stack mag is a bit snappier, but the mags are interchangeable, just slide the pinky extension onto the longer mag, or use the 9 round short mag for a smaller profile.

I have put maybe a thousand rounds down the standard model, and 500 through the SC. Not a single misfire.

A few weeks ago, nurse rached tried the .40SC and loved it.

First time shooting it, she nailed the bullseye, over and over again. I can understand why.

I think of a .40 as a big 9mm, not a small .45.

A .45 is in a league all it's own.

657 Good Morning Morons today is Monday, August 17,2020. On this day in 1998 Bill Clinton admitted in taped testimony that he had an "improper physical relationship" with White House intern Monica Lewinsky; later that same day he admits before the nation that he "lied" about the relationship. Not only to the American people but also to the court. IOW he committed perjury. He should have gone to jail for 5 years after being drummed out of the oval office. Instead he got probation. He's a Democrat and impervious to law.

I've used that good stick pepperoni ground in a food processor and added to my meatball mix as well.

Good pepperoni sliced with cubes of imported provolone toothpicked through it makes a tasty snack.

In the old Italian delis/meat stores in Brooklyn, upon request they would use the slicer and slice the stick pepperoni lengthwise for an appetizer. I've never seen that done anywhere else.

722 I was chatting with a long time friend who I worked with at a large now deceased American oil company in the latter part of the last century. We were reflecting on the seeds of destruction of that enterprise and how a lot of it started with the initial diversity and inclusion wars.
How management used that to jump females and blacks multiple levels to improve "optics". How all companies fought in engineering schools for the very few female and minorities graduating from tier 1 universities a. How failing on the engineering side, we stuffed departments like HR and a new one called Diversity with SJWs and how the CEO's came to be chosen by being a 1990's version of woke. And a 100 year old company was gone before you know it. And now they are after civil society. Gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling!

746 Mornin', all,

Up earlier than I planned, so exercised solidly, cleaned up, slopped the feline hogs and then myself.

Not sure, but I think I have to go back to my office this week. Of course the "administration" has completely bought into The Hysteria, so until I can get to my doctor and get an exemption letter, I'm going to have to wear that stupid mask when I leave my office. You know there'll be Karens to snitch on me if they see me breathing free.

I did use the excuse on a Walmart clerk who bore down on me yesterday morning as I came into the store, going, "Gotta wear a mask!" I said, "Medical exemption, vertigo, can't breathe," and she flapped a hand at me and said, "That was all you needed to say."

I know people in blue cities who claim to be conservative. They have the means to leave but won't. I don't argue for retreat necessarily, but reality matters. I don't get why people can't see something screaming in their face. Why live around people that hate you? Why send your kids to guaranteed Leftist indoctrination?

Something is up. I think there are more than a few that cling to the conservative moniker but it is skin deep. Others don't want to move or can't, I get that. What I am referring to is people who should be around fellow normals but choose to be among the left. Some of it is denial but there is something else there too.

In one or two days PDT got the subject off BLM, Antifa, and Whuflu. It is not USPS full time, all the time. All of the fake conservatives come out of the woodwork to support an organization that most people hate.

The USP was given $10 Billion in cash in 2012 to get their shit together. A reorg report was due with 2 years. then they asked for an extension. Well it is 2020 and no report. On Mar 25 PDT signed a bill to allow to borrow (ha) $11 Billion.

IF every voter used mail in ballots it would be a 30% bump over the average day, like the first week after thanksgiving.

The big issue is not the USPS but the fucked up voter roles. Experiments with mailing 100% of the votes finds that about 20% of the addresses on on rolls are invalid. Most voter rolls are not connected to a system to validate the address (example Apt 202 is listed as #202 in USPS database).

770 Nearby city is having a real spike in criminal activity the last few weeks. Of course they are cutting the police budget, and diverting the dollars to social workers. Will social workers come out a 2am to take control of the disorder on a Saturday night.... They usually work from 9 to 5.This seems to be the trend in most blue cities now, lets talk the gang bangers out of what they are doing and we will have peace at last.

1) Costs more money to mail.
2) Direct Deposit means all your money is in a bank and they can watch it and - perhaps - control it.
3) I'm sure there's more opportunity for graft and corruption in there, somewhere, too.

776 I would like to let all know that the size of your Penis really matters in your relationship or marriage. I got married to my wife about 1 month after we met in a photo studio, we lived happily for the first 3 months of our marriage until my wife and I started having quarrels at home because I couldn't satisfy her in bed with my little penis. Actually my penis was very small, it measured about 4.5 inch long on erection and I am 51 years old. My wife said it was forbidden by the women of this world. My wife started sleeping with other men outside. Sometimes i will return from work without finding my wife at home and whenever i call or ask her where she was, she will always snub at me and sometimes just tell me to go get a larger dick. All this continued for a long time and it hurt me so much that I was at the edge of breaking up on the marriage till when I read about a doctor called DR.Moses Buba. online. I never thought i could smile and be in a happy marriage again if not for the help of DR.Moses Buba. I got the doctors Emailsbuba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com ) on the internet and i emailed him, and he got back to me with some encouraging words, he got me some herbs cream which i use for just 8 days and i began to feel the enlargement of my penis, and without surgery. This went on for a little period of about 10 days and to my surprise my wife keeps screaming that she loves my big dick now. Now my wife no longer cheats on me, and my penis is now about 10.5 inches long on erection and off course very large round. And now my wife uses breasts, hips and bums enlargement. I and my wife are very happy for the help rendered to me by DR.Moses Buba, and I want to say a big thanks to the Doctor for the help. You can contact the Doctor now on his Email buba.herbalmiraclemedicine@gmail.com ) OR WHATSAPP +2349060529305, you can even contact me to know my result or see it with your eye on whats-app or you can call me +886981036185 or
