We have friends in East Texas that farm. He's got a field next to the house that he plows and grows various vegetables. Tomatoes, squash, cantaloupe, watermelon.

Someone drove INTO THE FIELD during the night and picked most everything and drove away.

Grape rustling is apparently a thing nowadays.

133 This is almost photo realistic. The detail is incredible. But it has an added layer of a subdued romantic quality. The low daylight allows an even, clear scene with nothing lost in shadow. The soft color in most of the clothing, grass and soil, even the oxen, reflects the gentle overcast sky. It is all of a piece and is quite restful. I can't say it celebrates rural living, the people are working, not dancing, but they make a living from it.

I find this kind of painting restful and revealing. The details show cultural aspects of work, clothing, and even economics. Interesting.

Except for the fact that I got the background behind two hymns reversed-(background which I try to include in worship services when I know that, because I think it's interesting) and later had to correct myself, it was fine. In a "God incidence" rather than a coincidence, the supervisor had a good conversation after church with a retired pastor who comes to our church-and it turned out they had served the same church-two others pastors apart. Supervisor told me it was a good service, but that might be one of those things supervisors say unless it is a real horror show, but I prayed and other people did too, and it's a good thing that I've been doing this a long time. Thanks for everybody's prayers, (I'm sure it helped) and I'm glad that it's over.

Lampeter Twp., I think? They were putting signs up a month after she disappeared. Even the Amish kid who came here to help search knew it was pointless.

As many have pointed out, being an obnoxious little bitch is par for the course for 15-year-old girls. What's not normal is the ability for her to throw tantrums in front of an audience of millions.

In the old days, she'd get married off and placed under the authority of an older husband.

247 Anthony Ciani's comment from his essay in American Thinker is painfully, sadly and ironically true. Trump, the president who said we would never become a socialist country, is ushering it in with his accommodations to Covid panic. He's been off on this issue from the beginning and will not address or arrest what's being done to the American people.

I'm sure his motives are excellent. He cares about people. He wants to help and save people. But in six months we've lost more liberties under Trump than any President in modern history.

If he has a plan to demolish this new superstructure of fear now ruling our lives and return us to normal, to lead us through the fear instead of conceding the legitimacy of the fears, I'd like to see it.

Michigan is sending postcards to more than 4 million registered voters, encouraging them to apply to vote absentee in the November election. The state also plans to spend millions in order to reimburse local cities that offer pre-paid return envelopes for absentee ballots.

The moves are the latest by Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to advocate for casting a ballot before Election Day, an initiative aimed at increasing voter participation while preventing the spread of the coronavirus.

The black underclass is an alien subculture which chooses defiance over compliance with traditional American civic values. They cannot be reasoned with, and even if we had leaders brave enough to repudiate their ignorance and deceit, we're still going to get burned out.

The only hope now for traditional law-abiding Americans who crave a safe place to live, is to move as far away from the black underclass as we can. The situation is dire and intractable.

Reminds me of a case a while ago in AZ. Guy had a huge mound of something that stank, badly.

Some contractor built a bunch of houses next to the guy, or near, and then, the people who bought houses sued the guy.

The courts tossed the case, telling the homeowners the guy was there long before they moved in.

Of course, this was back when courts were sane.

Michigan SOS Benson to mail millions of postcards to encourage absentee voting

https://bit.ly/34uJO2O

Michigan is sending postcards to more than 4 million registered voters, encouraging them to apply to vote absentee in the November election. The state also plans to spend millions in order to reimburse local cities that offer pre-paid return envelopes for absentee ballots.

Posted by: Clyde Shelton at August 24, 2020 10:03 AM

So thinking about this more, this seems to be an end-around the absentee voting process. With absentee voting, one has to be proactive and actually request the absentee ballot. With this, they are sending out the post-cards and now anyone can send them back requesting absentee ballots.

Yes, you have to sign the absentee ballot you send in, but if now *everyone* is voting absentee, do you really think they are going to check every single signature to verify it? Not likely.

You gotta luv all the articles that are saying that these days. All their whining isn't stopping it. We Normals knew what was coming and now it's here.

We need to stop it and reverse it before it gets any worse. But with the Deep State Swamp in control of the nation, that ain't gonna happen until it gets drained. PDT is the only person in DC who's willing to wade into it to try and find the drain plug.

The constitutional amendment that demands for sunsetting of laws should also forbid the passing of laws that affect more than one department at a time and dictate that all laws must be repassed individually.

375 Here's what I wrote to our hapless mayor this morning:

You said our community is suffused with systemic racism.
Then you condescended to those of us who know that is nonsense,
by telling us we aren't paying attention.

Our police chief told the truth when he said that teen gangbangers
are beyond redemption and need to be imprisoned.
He told the truth when he said that these criminals need
to be shoved OUT of Rockford any way we legally can.
Then you undercut him by saying everybody who
lives in Rockford is "valuable," which again
is platitudinous nonsense, and makes you look
like a weakling and a sap to the evil SOBs who are attacking us.

Somebody in our leadership has to find the guts
to tell our black underclass that their problems
are their own damn fault, not the fault of white
racists who oppress them. You need to stop
spouting the Marxist cant and crazy dogma that
animates the evil BLM and Antifa destroyers.

Look at Kenosha this morning. That's Rockford's
future, unless our leadership sacks up and tells
the truth about the dysfunction of our black underclass.

I hope you appreciate that I'm not among the people
who demonstrate outside your home.
I'm not among the people who get arrested every
damn week for breaking the law at the protests.
I'm not one of the guys who is shooting up our streets.
I'm just a guy who sends you emails, pays his taxes,
and has been a good citizen of this city for four decades.
Don't get mad at me; get mad at the evil-doers
for a change.

When we lived in Baltimore, our community had to eventually replace our entrance sign.

One of the things we were told by smart white folk was that we needed to remove any reference to covenants, as it was inherently racist.

When we bought our home here in South Carolina, I asked my black neighbors how they felt about our community sign containing the fact that we had restrictive covenants.

They laughed, and told me that it kept the riff-raff out.

Covenants were considered a positive factor for them.

They about choked when I explained our previous communities experience.

413 In various places (often related to elevators) I've had people apologize to me for forgetting to bring their mask with them. My response is always, "I don't care if you're wearing one or not." The general reaction is a look of relief.
Posted by: Vendette at August 24, 2020 10:41 AM (/N/PP)

Because most of them don't want to. They've been force or scared into it. You take away the threat of fining them for not wearing one and the number wearing it will drop off. You take away the demand that they must wear one to enter a store and the number drops off a cliff.


If people really truly believed they were useful then no mandates would be required. Because even after Fauci said he was lying that masks weren't useful the people wearing them wasn't increasing. Only after governments and fascist stores started requiring it did they start.

423 Just finished watching "The Silent Speaker," an episode of the A & E Nero Wolfe series from 2001-03. A superb adaptation; they use not only the plot and situations from Rex Stout's 1947 novel but great whacking hunks of the dialog. Maury Chaykin shouts a bit too often as Wolfe, and Tim Hutton is a little too "New York tough guy" as Archie (who was from Ohio, after all, not Brooklyn). But not enough to spoil the total effect.

It looks like most of them are on YT. Time to sit down with another one!

If you, being from South Dakota came to DC for a reason that isn't on the approved list, such as tourism, you'd "have" to quarantine for 14 days. But someone coming from New York City would not.

That quarantine regulation is pretty much unenforceable anyway, and to get around it someone visiting could just stay in Maryland or Virginia and go into DC via public transportation, rental car, or via a cab or a car service. Plus the list of states changes every 2 weeks; for example, Delaware was on it, got taken off for 2 weeks, and is now back on it. It's a farce.

it'll be pretty funny if she destroys Michigan football for good. I'm going to enjoy seeing all the top recruits jump over to the SEC and any other leagues that are playing - they know that their future hopes for a professional payday go into the shitter if they take a year off while so many others keep on practicing and playing. They have to leave schools that won't play.

And once a school loses an entire year of recruits, they're guaranteed to be cellar dwellers for at least a decade, if not more.

According to the rules of 2016, that means that Joe Biden and Richard Spencer agree on everything.

Does Spencer agree with Biden that Kameltoe Harris is african-american? One of the 3-letter news orgs did an interview of Biden/Harris that they teased all weekend. Biden claimed Harris is african-american. Last I knew, the only african-american in Harris was Willie Brown.

489 So cousin go into work, he runs physical security at a major hospital. He has a fever so they test him for Whuflu and send him home. So 3 days later his test comes in negative. So they tell him he has the Whuflu best the test was wrong. He sits at the house for 2 week feeling like death.

We during this time he happen to call his GI doc as he has UC. GI doc says come in RIGHT FUCKING NOW.

So it now appears he has bile duct failure and his liver will fail within about 5 years or so.

WTF, this Whuflu is destroying our health care.

496 I hope you appreciate that I'm not among the people
who demonstrate outside your home.
I'm not among the people who get arrested every
damn week for breaking the law at the protests.
I'm not one of the guys who is shooting up our streets.
I'm just a guy who sends you emails, pays his taxes,
and has been a good citizen of this city for four decades.
Don't get mad at me; get mad at the evil-doers
for a change.

The mayor replied that I am seeking simple answers to complex problems. See, he's the SMART one, the guy who understands complexity, unlike dolts like me.

Great email from you.

I hope you replied that the mayor who attempts to blame all crimes committed by blacks and all societal evils afflicting the underclasses on an unprovable claim of undefined "systemic racism" is the one who is seeking a "simple answer" to a complex problem.

Thank you! I try not to email the mayor too often, lest he start ignoring me.

I've asked him before to provide evidence of our systemic racism. He did not reply.

I'm a retired senior software engineer. I do know a little tiny bit about complexity.

Besides his condescension, I want to note that all I was asking him to do is TELL THE TRUTH, instead of pretending not to notice that the black underclass is a violent, wholly separate, defiant, dysfunctional culture, that is animated by deceit, ignorance and hatred.

White people are deemed evil if they dare to notice these things.

If they think they have the power, then they have the power. The animals that populate our political system these days don't think that government should have any limits at all. Precedent means nothing, their power means everything.

Political restraint has been dead for quite a while.
BAMN is our new national slogan.

Power resides where men believe it resides.

It's a trick, a shadow on the wall.

And a very small man can cast a very large shadow.
