The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“You can’t convert political disagreement into a recall,” Seattle attorney Dmitri Iglitzin

Quote II

“Speaker Pelosi, on the other hand, is deafeningly silent. By failing to act and hold Rep. Tlaib accountable, Pelosi is emboldening her and others to continue spreading and escalating this dangerous, hateful bigotry.” Rep. Guy Reschenthaler (R-PA)

Quote III

“There are loads of students in dire situations … but there’s no availability for mental health services for months,” Ellie Concannon from Sussex Renters Union

Quote IV

Somebody should tell us, right at the start of our lives, that we are dying. Then we might live life to the limit, every minute of every day. Do it! I say. Whatever you want to do, do it now! Michael Landon

Vancouver Canucks Fire Anthem Singer over Planned Performance at Anti-Mask Rally

Last week The ONT covered Hungarian politician Jozsef Szajer being busted at a gay orgy. The police report is really an interesting read.

When police burst open the doors of a gay orgy attended by top anti-LGBT+ Hungarian official Jozsef Szajer, orgy-goers thought the cops were “part of the fun” and tried to “unzip their pants”.

Clearly mistaking the police for a different kind of pig, attendees of the party in Brussels, Belgium, assumed law enforcement banging down the doors was a precursor of what was to come, organisers told Polish news outlet Onet.

Polish orgy organiser David Manzheley said the some 20 predominantly naked men attending the bash in the heart of the city’s gay village “tired to unzip the pants of the police officers because they thought that the raid was part of the orgy”.


David French is thinking, "Is that a night stick in your pocket or are you just glad to see me."

Beauty and functionality are in the eye of the beholder. This Cob doesn't see either.

Aptera, the company that shuttered in 2011 after failing to secure funding for its three-wheeled electric car, is back with a new solar electric vehicle it claims never needs charging, at least, for most drivers. And it predicts its top model, with a battery of 100 kWh, can get up to 1,000 miles of range.

The new three-wheeled, two-person (or two adults plus pet, as its specs suggest) vehicle has a solar roof array that can provide up to 45 miles of range per day, so if you have that top model and add the charge from the solar panels while it’s parked, then the 1,000 range seems ... possible. Although, as Car and Driver points out, the vehicle doesn’t run just on solar power while driving.

At this time of year when I was a kid (only just a few short years ago) I enjoyed perusing the various Christmas catalogs. As winter faded the seed catalogs arrived. They were followed up by fishing supply catalogs. Say "Goodbye" to Ikea's catalog.

After a 70-year run, Ikea is discontinuing the publication of its printed catalog.

Ikea’s decision comes as catalog readership is in decline and the company becomes increasingly more digital. After initially resisting online shopping, the company was forced to embrace it during the pandemic. Ikea says its online retail sales increased by 45 percent worldwide last year with ikea.com reporting four billion visits. The company has also improved its suite of apps to make discovering and buying products easier, while opening smaller stores located in city centers meant to reach people where they live.


Call me old fashioned. I still prefer paper.

The roster is this: Russian Commies bad. Chinese Commies f*cking fantastic.

The summit, which occurred in May of 2019, was touted as an “exclusive deal making opportunity” for closer financial ties between the Chinese government and their U.S. counterparts.

Gilchrist, a Democrat who’s held the position since 2019 and labeled President Trump’s election grievances a “house of cards,” attended the summit alongside the Governors of Kentucky and Tennessee. A Chinese Communist Party mayor, two Vice Governors, and one Governor attended the summit.

Very cool, yet somewhat of a pucker moment all at the same time. 3 mountain lions on a front porch.

Living in the country has its perks. Most notably is the chance to encounter wildlife on a near daily basis. You just never know when a deer, turkey or racoon is going to show up in your backyard or at your bird feeder. It's one of the reasons we like being away from the big city.

Sometimes, we're fortunate enough to encounter wild animals that are rarely seen during the daylight hours. Such is the case with today's video. This family was surprised to look outside and see three young mountain lions in the yard.

Teacher unions need to be abolished. The faster the better.

Chicago Teachers Union deletes tweet blaming sexist, racism, misogyny for “the push to reopen schools” after backlash

The Chicago Teacher Union deleted a tweet that was the subject of much mockery on Twitter.

The tweet claimed “The push to reopen schools is rooted in sexism, racism and misogyny.”


Unions are rooted in communism and laziness. Two can play that game of name calling.


While we are on the subject of overpaid, underworked, martyrs teachers. I don't want this woman anywhere near children, mine or yours.

A woman claiming to be a teacher stopped her car and had a complete meltdown at anti-lockdown protesters in Bend, Oregon, on Sunday.
The belligerent woman shouted “b-tch kill yourself” as she berated the protesters from her vehicle.


“I’M A F-CKING TEACHER,” the aggressive woman repeatedly shouts at the peaceful demonstrators. “F-CK YOU, I AM A TEACHER.”

No good deed goes unpunished. Taking a walk instead of a domestic violence charge costs Italian man.

A husband went for a 280-mile walk to calm down after an argument with his wife. He then got fined for breaching coronavirus lockdown regulations.

Well is it? Now is the time to legalize marijuana.

Either today or later this week, the House will likely take the historic step and actually hold a vote on whether to deschedule marijuana from the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). In addition, the Marijuana Opportunity Reinvestment and Expungement (MORE) Act would expunge low‐​level marijuana offenses and impose a 5 percent federal sales tax. The bill is unlikely to get past the Republican Senate, and there are many other proposals—some with the seeming support of President‐​elect Biden—that would reschedule rather than deschedule the plant. But descheduling—removing the drug from the CSA entirely—is the only sensible path forward for marijuana reform, not rescheduling—moving the drug to a different section of the CSA. Like alcohol, the federal government should have very little involvement in regulating marijuana.

She needed a miracle and she received one. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.


The Maltby Café has served the community for over 36 years. But the small family-run restaurant has suffered greatly in these past months.

When the second shut down came, co-owner Tana Baulmer resigned herself to the reality that she would have to close the restaurant permanently.

"I got on my knees and I cried and I said, 'God, I need a miracle'," Baulmer told KING 5.

When word got out about the restaurant closing its doors, thousands of customers began giving what they could to keep the cafe's doors open.

In less than a week, more than $92,000 has been raised for the restaurant on GoFundMe.

"Small family run businesses have suffered greatly in these past months and The Maltby Café is one of those small family businesses that is struggling to stay open," Jim Barger, the organizer of the fundraiser, wrote on GoFundMe.

41 Interesting and perhaps relevant sidenote: There was a piece on Insty a few days ago on ZiCam, a zinc supplement that made much on the box of "Zinc kills viruses!" There was a big center aisle dump of ZiCam products at our Walmart. Today, the dump was gone, replace with a display of ziCam COLD REMEDY and not a single word about viruses and and zinc except in the mandatory ingredients label. Same formula, mostlyzinc.

Now who leaned on who?

73 Tale of two cities.

Our schools move heaven an earth to stay open in the age of cuomo. There's a protocol, kid in class test positive, parents inform school, school quietly sends class home at lunch time for 4 or 5 days (we have 4 classes for each grade).

From Administration down to the teachers to the community, we all recognize that there is. nothing. more. important. than keeping the schools open.

These teachers unions and any teacher who identifies with them in their WAR against children which didn't start with COVID are going to HELL.

Evil fuckers.

93 "Not Seaworthy".

The dictionary definition ought to have that last picture right there with the explanative text.

One good wake from a passing boat, and that trailer might just become a very large, and very temporary Fishing Bobber.

+1/2 credit for deploying the leveling jacks. -5 credits for failing to obtain and use some nylon, ratcheting cargo straps, in order to bear down with some strain and lock that trailer down on it's jacks and the barge or pontoon boat on which it's riding.

And I'd love to watch some video of that 'luminum boat and her skipper, putting that rig into motion.

My bet is there are no proper "Y" towing bridles at either end of the pull, and likely the skipper also doesn't know the "on the hip" method of more precisely controlling the rig in tight quarters around the docks.

I'll bet also though, that the beer stowed in the fridge and coolers is properly iced down and cold. Because, of course it is!

97 Re the hidden click. She was okay, but her voice is so smooth; the BF original (Winwood?) was a bit more ragged (listening to it right now), which kinda seems more suited to the song.

When JC Superstar road show hit Tulsa, Yvonne Elliman's understudy took the Magdalene role. Only a little disappointed. Always wondered if Tulsa was just too déclassé for Ms. Elliman.

Peripherally: My college radio station (a mighty 5 watts) got promo copies early because of graduates working in the music industry. AFAIK, I was the first one to play the entire JC Superstar opera, in the Midwest-Chicago area. The promo info package was great and I wish I had that.

Now, that Ian Gillan sure had a voice.

100 My Pearl Harbor story...

December 1999 I was working in Waikiki, passing fliers on the sidewalks(it didn't pay much, but I was being paid to girl-watch in Waikiki).


Every year the week of Dec 7th a lot of the vets of the attack would come to town. As I was passing fliers one of the vets came by telling his story, and showed me a photograph of him being fished out of the water into a rescue boat, unconscious. He said he met the person who took the picture, that was how he got the picture, but never found out who had actually pulled him into the boat.

Another vet was looking over my shoulder at the picture and listening to the story, and he said, "That was me." It suddenly got all dusty there.

126 A teacher in the Jefferson County School District was placed on administrative leave Monday after a viral video posted Sunday showed her yelling at anti-lockdown protesters in downtown Bend.

In the video - which had 1.6 million views on Twitter as of Monday morning - the teacher screamed at the protesters to kill themselves, while sitting inside her car. She also identified herself as a teacher, gave the protesters the middle finger and yelled that her students' families were dying.

The school district is investigating the situation while the first-year teacher remains on leave, said Superintendent Ken Parshall. He declined to name the teacher or state which school she worked at.


First-year teacher. That means she is still on probation, and can actually be fired.

159 104 I watched "Wolfen" which I hadn't seen in forever. Still a very atmospheric horror movie, very well worth watching. With...the message, I guess, that we shouldn't clear the slums, because those are the Wolfen's feeding grounds, so...

On a sadder note, it demonstrated that James Horner wrote about an hour of music and recycled it endlessly. Seriously, when the super-wolves attack near the end, it's just Khan attacking the Enterprise.
=======
Horner hasn't gotten much better over the years. John Williams is a modern Beethoven. James Horner is a modern hack who has convinced many people he deserves a paycheck.

Wolfen could benefit from a remake. The super-wolves weren't really a vengeful lorax-thing, they were (per Streiber) the natural response to human population increase. We got our own dedicated predator, and it became the bogeyman. The Wolfen could mimic voices and cries in the book, and also had protothumbs which allowed them to manage doors and windows at times, and climb as well. And thanks to the Socialist big city governments, hunting has never been more plentiful. Yeah, it could be done again, and make a splash on streaming. (I have no hope for movie theaters now.)

I hardly think so. Notice, in the sense of "information, knowledge, intelligencel" began to be used in English in the 15th Cnetury

It came from the Old French notece, which came from the Latin notitia "a being known, celebrity, fame, knowledge", from notus "known," and the past participle of noscere "come to know, to get to know, get acquainted (with)".

With such a rich Western Civilization heritage, how could it be just a notice?

207 "and yelled that her students' families were dying."

As of November 22nd, 869 people had died of CCP virus in Oregon.

A hundred people die on an average day in Oregon, so that is just over a week's worth of deaths from CCP virus over the last six months.

The Oregon Health Authority claims that 2,690 extra people have died in 2020 (over the five year average), but of course more people are killing themselves, plus people aren't getting a lot of medical appointments and needed surgeries.

232 201 193 No offense to the 'ettes or the 'rons on the thread who own Subaru's, but in my experience with over 2 million miles over the road, Subaru drivers are by far the most obnoxious drivers on the road. Many of them think that their safety features will protect them from being completely destroyed when they cut off the 80 thousand pound semi and then come to a complete stop at 70 mph.


not arguing with this but OMG I think Volvo owners are the epitome of this!!!

and the most dickish drivers by far are Audi drivers

it's amazing

The Maltby Café has served the community for over 36 years. But the small family-run restaurant has suffered greatly in these past months.
When the second shut down came, co-owner Tana Baulmer resigned herself to the reality that she would have to close the restaurant permanently.
-------

If you are ever in Maltby (near Snohomish), DO stop at the Maltby Cafe.

I proclaim this from a first-person viewpoint. But only if you like great breakfasts and lunches, a lot of food, reasonable prices, and some excellent attitudes and service from the staff.

Enough of you know who have met me know I have enjoyed good meals in my time. That makes me a self-appointed expert in such matters.

Every year the week of Dec 7th a lot of the vets of the attack would come to town. As I was passing fliers one of the vets came by telling his story, and showed me a photograph of him being fished out of the water into a rescue boat, unconscious. He said he met the person who took the picture, that was how he got the picture, but never found out who had actually pulled him into the boat.

Another vet was looking over my shoulder at the picture and listening to the story, and he said, "That was me." It suddenly got all dusty there.

And the coolest one, with all the most drool-worthy stuff, was called DAK. Mostly home audiophile stuff, in an interesting format -- each item was like an article and a review.

That whole thing was so stupid that I would have thought it was parody. The best part is where the parent's description of each kid starts out with describing how brilliant they are. Then they become freaks.

307 232 201 193 No offense to the 'ettes or the 'rons on the thread who own Subaru's, but in my experience with over 2 million miles over the road, Subaru drivers are by far the most obnoxious drivers on the road. Many of them think that their safety features will protect them from being completely destroyed when they cut off the 80 thousand pound semi and then come to a complete stop at 70 mph.


not arguing with this but OMG I think Volvo owners are the epitome of this!!!

and the most dickish drivers by far are Audi drivers

This, and the toleration of it by the populace, is as terrifying and appalling as anything else, including the still-unbelievable election situation.

331 Scottish National Party has published a coronavirus etiquette guide.

If a friend runs in for a hug, the pandemic politeness guidelines suggest saying: "I so want to hug you! But I guess we have to wait until it's safe. I don't want to risk harming you or anyone else you are in contact with. I'm giving you a virtual hug."

A friend invites you to birthday drinks at their house. Try providing a positive reason for declining and offer an alternative. "I wouldn't want to risk infecting you -- that would be the worst birthday present ever. Let's have a birthday zoom and plan a bigger celebration when it's safe to get together"

346 I have a sort of a question that maybe the Horde can answer for me. On the local news channel, 9news, they have a hired white coat talking head that said that people are getting reinfected with the 'Rona. She even said that if you had been infected, your immunity could only last about 36 days. (pretty specific). So my question is, if you get the vaccine that allegedly protects you from the 'Rona, and it could conceivably alter your DNA, what the hell good is it to get the vaccine. Not that I have to worry here in CO. Mrs. Old Blue and I are so far down the list of people to get it, after the homeless in shelters, doctors, nurses, homeless not in shelters, the criminals, the politicians, the teachers, FD and PD, cats, dogs, aliens, illegal aliens, legal aliens, dead voters, casino workers, construction workers, people in nursing homes or assisted care facilities, and cats. By the time they get to us, they'll be out of vaccine. Or 36 days, whichever comes first.So, do we take it or not? I'm thinking not a snowball's chance in hell.

I don't know where she got the 36 day figure; pulled it out of her ass, most likely. But given that the whole purpose of vaccination is to mimic infection, but with dead or crippled virus, in order to create the same kind of antibodies that an attack of the real live virus would create, it stands to reason that vaccine-created antibodies would last no longer than those created by contracting the disease.

382 The Maltby Cafe is real, real close to my Authorial Manse. And the food is AMAZING. I did not know they were in trouble and I'm glad they got help. Interesting mix of clientele, you can find a horde of bikers or a bunch of hipsters depending on the weather. And it (was) always busy.

383 Mountain lions one year back in the late 90s, I think it was, kind of went nuts in CA. Lots of incursions into populated areas, way beyond the outer exurbs where it happens now and then. Even a few attacks on humans. There was actually a proposition on the ballot to resume the very limited hunting license program for the big cats (the state had 3 bounty hunters on call for dangerous/troublesome cats when they appeared, but no hunting). The proposition lost.

There's a cool freeway overpass connector thinggy at the 5 and 405 in Orange County (the "Orange Crush"), very high up. You can see the farmland still planted to row crops, amidst the high tech industry parks etc of Irvine, and in the eastern distance, the hills of a county park. I think one or two mtn. bikers were killed there by cats in the last 15 years. Pretty wild.

384 antibodies don't last THAT long... but your body retains the ability to create those antibodies when faced with that same virus

I can't believe I have to explain this shit to supposed DOCTORS but apparently they go on TV not knowing this?!?!

anyway this is a real nosocomial virus, and maybe nastier than most. but it behaves exactly like a nosocomial virus at least it has so far so it's not some magic thing. it's a bad bug. but not an alien.

also it's endemic now so I honestly have zero clue why we're even remotely considering "lockdowns" they make less than zero sense!

Re-infection from any specific variant of a covid virus is likely not happening. New variants, on the other hand, can infect people because immunity is specific to the virus. If the vaccine doesn't mimic infection, it likely would work for more than just the targeted virus.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon


*********

Yeah, generally speaking that is correct, in that natural immunity tends to last longer than artificial (vaccine-induced) immunity. There is truth to the old saw: That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

The unknown with the Pfizer vaccine is that it is not a killed or attenuated live virus vaccine. It is an mRNA vaccine. The RNA blueprint for certain external SARS-2 capsular proteins is injected, gets taken up by cells of the body, use the cell's own ribosome machinery to manufacture copies of the viral proteins which then trigger the immune response. I suspect the duration of protection will be similar to killed virus vaccines, since the nature of the antigen is similar, but that remains to be seen.

It's an mRNA vaccine. It gives the cells a template to build a little chunk of the outside coating of the virus. It is big enough for the body to recognize it as an antigen, but not nearly complete enough to make you sick. So the cells build the antigen, the body creates immunity to it, and then the mRNA disintegrates (that part is well known).

491 Yeah, generally speaking that is correct, in that natural immunity tends to last longer than artificial (vaccine-induced) immunity. There is truth to the old saw: That which doesn't kill you makes you stronger.

The unknown with the Pfizer vaccine is that it is not a killed or attenuated live virus vaccine. It is an mRNA vaccine. The RNA blueprint for certain external SARS-2 capsular proteins is injected, gets taken up by cells of the body, use the cell's own ribosome machinery to manufacture copies of the viral proteins which then trigger the immune response. I suspect the duration of protection will be similar to killed virus vaccines, since the nature of the antigen is similar, but that remains to be seen.

528 @460 rhomboid-That area right there by Cabelas/Verdi is loaded with monster mule deer. On the Cabelas side Peavine Mt and the area between the Cal border is a great area for hunting lion, bobcat and black bear. On the south side of I-80 the Garson Road area is a popular place known for non-typical mule deer. My friends mom got a record book 6x6 with drop tines on both sides. The mass in the beams was incredible. They display the head whenever the Mule Deer Foundation has a show in Reno. The only problem is drawing a tag for that area is like hitting the lottery.

Essentially federalizing state and local law enforcement. What you want is not possible. You can get this kind of stuff where it is specifically targeted at a racial/ethnic/gender -type group, but not where the targeted groups is "capitalists" or "The Man". And we added the "good and hard clause" when we enacted direct election of senators. Elections have consequences -- if they're fair and counted fairly. There is no way in fucking hell that "Portlandia" is not a documentary. Holy crap, and they probably have some awesome pot up there. But those people loved that shit when they were voting. All SCOTUS would say is, "we'll make sure you can lawfully and fairly vote your way out of it, if a majority of you want to", otherwise, why TF are you still there?

545 Boots, that was my point.

Oh there are limits, to be sure.

But the last 8 months is a stunning time-line.

Unimagined destruction of freedom and prosperity, almost entirely without any scientific basis. And sustained, til this day, despite the lack of any basis becoming obvious (it was between very dubious and non-existent to start).

Look at the dumbed-down country. Unable/unwilling to put any thought into serious topics, meekly accepting the utter nonsense from above. Institutions? Incompetent, drunk on power, seemingly malicious even.

And we just had a referendum of sorts (not exactly, but if pushback were happening it would have been obvious), and there was no revolt of any kind.

The authoritarian social engineers probably are as stunned as good normal people at this. They've been mostly quiet. But they're starting to stir, and the prospect of, incredibly, being given power again, after this year of destruction, will surely inspire epic ideas for vandalism.

But the new generation of trouble isn't really so much just China-focused - these people are just clueless irresponsible grifters/ideologues, as they showed in the first 2 Obama terms (this will be the third). Their incompetence will be indivisible and general. Blinken may have been pocketing $ specifically from China, but even if he weren't, policies would be the same.

As I've said for several weeks, Beijing, and Tehran, at a minimum, can probably literally not believe their incredible fortune here. They have been losing every round with Trump, their positions have become more and more precarious. And they might just be rescued - poof - just like that.

Granted, under 42 U.S.C. sec. 1983 there would be federal jurisdiction, but you'd be made an offer to settle and a bunch of socks, and if you didn't take the socks, there'd be consequences.

I'm not picking on you, Redbanz-n-rice. I just want to impress upon you the practical problems you face. It is so important, as a lawyer, to know what is practical. I'm not saying don't attempt beyond the practical, but knowing the limits of practical puts you in a better position that not even realizing there is a practical limit. Until you can articulate what and how each individual plaintiff will get from whom and for what, you don't really understand your case. You're also feisty.

Got the flu vaccine this year after many years of not getting it because I didn't want to get the flu and be treated as if I had zombie ebola.

severe aches and high fever (like 104 degrees) for days. My body does
not seem to care if I get the real flu or a shot... my symptoms are the

My understanding is there is no live virus in a flu vaccine. Rather it fools your immune system to come out and kill it. I am not a doctor and have never played one on tv but I get one every year.

614 It took me 4+ months after someone I know got a NASTY case of shingles to actually get myself to my HMO and get the vaccine and I'm not a front line worker or high risk if I get covid-19.

Sooo, I'm not likely to be offered vaccine until summer and what with summer virus attenuation and my dislike of going to doc and general procrastination I'll wait, if virus is still hitting next fall then I might get the vaccination if I'm not too busy. But last flu shot I got I felt like a mild case of flu for 2 days. I was kicking myself for getting vaccinated on a friday and ruining my weekend.

Civil harassment restraining orders under CA Code of Civil Procedure sec. 527.6 are not handled through the DA. It's a start. I suspect those are among the exemptions, though. This is rear-guard action stuff, so they can still handle the domestic dispute stuff. Probably a lot of that is controlled at the state level so there could be real consequences to misallocating like that.

626 126 A teacher in the Jefferson County School District was placed on administrative leave Monday after a viral video posted Sunday showed her yelling at anti-lockdown protesters in downtown Bend.

In the video - which had 1.6 million views on Twitter as of Monday morning - the teacher screamed at the protesters to kill themselves, while sitting inside her car. She also identified herself as a teacher, gave the protesters the middle finger and yelled that her students' families were dying.

The school district is investigating the situation while the first-year teacher remains on leave, said Superintendent Ken Parshall. He declined to name the teacher or state which school she worked at.

First-year teacher. That means she is still on probation, and can actually be fired.

SFGoth... I am not nearly as stupid as you seem to presume.

The path to get qualified immunity (that officials are presumed to have) taken away for any particular action on their part runs straight through SCOTUS.

That happens frequently with police actions because of the stupid ruling way back when that any action or activity by an official... even if that action is criminal... must first be adjudicated as outside of the scope of their protection before they can be held responsible for it. That is how you get absurd rulings like the one out of the 9th circuit (Jessop v. City of Fresno) that cops can steal hundreds of thousand of dollars and that theft is subject to qualified immunity.

654 I'm not talking about immunity. Immunity has nothing to do with it. Without, at the very least, a protected class involved, there is no practical way to award anyone a remedy against a DA for taking law enforcement into their own hands by abdicating. A cop who shoots someone is an identifiable target by a proximately-harmed plaintiff. It is a practical impossibility to sue a DA for not prosecuting for certain crimes so long as that decision is applied without regard for a protected characteristic. Again, you cannot even frame what you want and then work through how the wronged plaintiff gets righted.

Dollar store just sells reading glasses. For presbyopia, the inability to focus on near objects. Chique said her glasses were for myopia, the inability to focus on distant objects. I had that since childhood, and developed the presbyopia once I reached 29. Since having cataract surgery, my distance vision is excellent, and I can manage pretty well close-up, too. I will don readers for fussy close-up work, though.

More like the 2020 version of dimpled chads... remember them arguing over whether they signified intent to vote or merely that the voter was absently tapping on the ballot with the stylus while he/she made decisions?

Posted by: redbanzai the Southerner at December 08, 2020 12:39 AM (946rW)

663 The entire idea of "adjudicating" any ballots not affected by a post-voter factor (machine spindling or damage, liquids, etc) is outrageous and absurd, always has been.

The voter has the responsibility to get the vote right, by whatever process is used.

I don't recall having standardized tests scored to my benefit if I didn't fill in the answer sheet correctly.

Earliest high-profile example of this of course was FL 2000. Outrageous. A very reliable punch-card system, in use by many states, with properly functioning counting machines (tested before and after).

Done. No need for any human interpretation. Voter has the job of making sure their ballot is properly marked/punched/anointed/whatever. Their voting process ends the instant they turn in the ballot.

Any ballot with ambiguous markings has *NO VOTE* on that line. Period. No need for "adjudication". And, as important, no value for society. It is not important that people vote, it is only important that the process has integrity, when they *do* vote.

Well, I was going to say something snarky about 'afraid for his life' or 'instant karma', but...

Are there levels of "resisting arrest" - or is that all a misdemeanor by definition?



Making resisting arrest essentially a non-crime sorta kinda opens
up, I dunno, the entire menu of physical lawlessness? I can out-run a
cop, then shove him back as I scale the wall and escape - and it's a
nothingburger?

680 I'm not talking about immunity. Immunity has nothing to do with it. Without, at the very least, a protected class involved, there is no practical way to award anyone a remedy against a DA for taking law enforcement into their own hands by abdicating. A cop who shoots someone is an identifiable target by a proximately-harmed plaintiff. It is a practical impossibility to sue a DA for not prosecuting for certain crimes so long as that decision is applied without regard for a protected characteristic. Again, you cannot even frame what you want and then work through how the wronged plaintiff gets righted.

Is that nailed down yet? I saw someone earlier had a tweet from an unknown (to me) source about machines being tested and getting results of 87% Trump to 113% Biden. Which sounds big, but it's unclear what that means (I assume it means if you put through 100 ballots for each you get 87 and 113, but that needs to be explicitly stated. But there's still a question of what calculation resulted in those totals).

I wonder, because Biden took IL 2.5 million to 2 million (last I had checked) and 11% swing makes that really close. Just as an example.

Even after "registering" it, it still wouldn't spend online, so I had to call and at that point they now had my phone number in addition to my name & email.

Hey Methos... That test was actually done on Dominion machine in Ware County GA. They ran equal numbers of ballots marked for Trump and ballots marked for Biden. basically moved 13% of Trump's votes to Biden while keeping all of Biden's votes as Biden votes (and isn't it peculiar that all of the "human error", machine malfunctions" and double counting always benefits one party).

Some of the shit you get from other outfits that would have been cheap particle board at IKEA are actually now just laminate glued around boards of styrofoam. It's basically a movie prop. Shelves such that you can punch a hole in with your fists.

Covid reactions have made public schools a sick joke and abject failure.
My SIL, 27 year teacher (numerous awards) in a larger suburban Puget Sound school district told me last week that 30% of students have just "disappeared". Parents call her up nearly every day and start crying because their kids aren't learning anything.
They only have to log on ONCE a day, and they are considered "present" for that day.
She teaches 5th grade, and many of them can't even log on properly. And some of those kids are home alone, because the parents have to work to keep a roof over their heads.
Oh, and why is that 30% disappearance rate so important, other than the kids welfare?
Because the Fed Gov pays the district over $12k per child per year.
The school district is not reporting the mass disappearances, but still taking the money.
She would have quit already, but said she knows a lot of these kids and won't abandon them. And she is putting in more time overall than if she was still in class.

Public education in times of Covid, in a Blue state, is a shitshow extraordinaire.
These kids will NEVER recover.

They're still freaking out about it, though... some areas are trying to set up schemes for the state to come in and nose around in people's homes because "the kids aren't in school so we can't find abuse". And then you have the schools attempting to prevent parents from observing video classes.

769 SFGoth just happened to be reading a book wherein the inter-war war planning was discussed (Plan Orange, then the Rainbow plans - Japan). As Orange was being discarded, and before the Rainbows were adopted, the top Army planner's position was that the US (as you actually tossed out last night) should defend a perimeter far to the east. Lt. Gen. Embick said the US should defend a line - AK/Oahu/Panama, which was a natural defense line given the capabilities of the time, and geography.

In the end it was decided - on paper - to commit to defending the Philippines, though there was never really the material action taken to make this feasible. There was a build-up that came much too late in 1941, but even that would have been inadequate.

There was a combination of factors, including discomfort with some top leaders about "abandoning" the Philippines, and the influence of MacArthur, that resulted in the nominal commitment.

But you and Embick were on the same page. So there's that.

I yanked my kid out and went to the "charter" school that is really homeschooling. They pay for books and supplies, up to $3K/semester, and I do the teaching and grading, and then report the grades back to them. Easy peasy. And I can teach Western Civ, the Bible as Literature (also known as Scripture Studies), real Algebra, real art history, and have him read real books instead of the crap the public schools teach.

Plus it only takes a few over-the-glasses nun-looks to keep the kid on task.

I work full time while I'm doing that.

And I don't get paid to do it, but he's actually learning something for a change.

791 These lockdowns, because they are not based on any science but rather the exercise of raw political power, are nothing more than martial law without a declaration of martial law. How would a declaration of martial law be any different that what we currently are enduring now? Businesses told to close up shop upon penalty of losing one's business license to operate, citizens told to stay inside during daylight hours, i.e., no curfew declared, being ordered to wear a face diaper to go about one's business, etc. That we as a society have acquiesced to undeclared martial law so meekly is a testament to the power of the schools deliberately dumbing society down. And kudos must be given our propaganda media for aiding and abetting the 'rona Dempanic through obfuscation and deliberate lies.

At this point, I want Lexington/Concord 1775 redux.
I'll settle for The Boston Tea Party 1773 redux.
I'll probably end up with Boston Strong Sheltering In Place 2013.

In 4th grade at Lakeland Elementary school in Federal Way, WA, we had a school Christmas tree in the foyer as we entered, and also Mrs Nelson had a smaller tree in our classroom. And the choir sung all religious standard songs, with just one non-religious one, like Here Comes Santa Claus.
We had a Christmas Gift Exchange, too. And made little paper ornaments for the trees. A lot of students made angels. And we made Christmas cards for each other to exchange, using colored thick paper.

And the last day before Christmas break was a half day of school, we spent a lot of time singing Christmas Carols in class.

Today, I'm sure everyone would be doxxed, fired, and local Leftist TV would have a multi-part investigation on this horrible corruption.

804 Businesses told to close up shop upon penalty of losing one's business license to operate, citizens told to stay inside during daylight hours, i.e., no curfew declared, being ordered to wear a face diaper to go about one's business, etc. That we as a society have acquiesced to undeclared martial law so meekly is a testament to the power of the schools deliberately dumbing society down.

they need to have them be licensed for several reasons:
so they can control who can or cannot open a particular business.

they also need to know who to collect taxes from.

i have a CA state Rx tech registration that i keep current, simply because, if there is ever a reason i need to have one, say to land a j*b, it would take me months to renews that one or get a new one.

i also have a Shitty of Lost Angels business tax license, on the off chance that the money i wasted on the UCLA Extension paralegal program actually pays off with noticeable income in the future, lest they try to claim back taxes based on all the years i made jack shit, w/o a license. "well, you made this much this year, so you owe us the same amount for all the others too..." because of course they would.

i got a letter from the Franchise Tax Board up in Sacratomato, again, a month or so ago (i get them every year or two) telling me i owe $30K plus in taxes, penalties and interest, based on the average income both career fields make when added together. my actual taxable income for the year in question? $0

they get to pick winners and losers, and tax the shit out of you too.

In states with closed primaries, that's a problem. I remained a registered D in New York for decades because I could vote against Democrat assholes in primaries. But after 2012, I could no longer have my name associated with commie fucks and switched to R.

When I first moved to New York I registered as an Independent. I found out during the first primary that I could not vote for either party and way back there were no 'Independents' on that ballot. To be able to vote in the primaries, I had to register as an R or a D. I chose D because there weren't oftentimes there was no Republican running for anything in New York.

Texas brought a suit against four states that did something they cannot do: they violated the U.S. Constitution in their conduct of the presidential election. And this violation occurred regardless of the amount of election fraud that may have resulted. The four defendant states are Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

And lots and lots of construction. The entire Puget Sound area, cities and suburbs, were getting built where only trees once stood. Most of my uncles were in construction of some kind. I worked for one of them, and electrical contractor, one summer when I was 15. I got paid $2 an hour, and let me tell you, that was big bucks for someone my age at that point in time.

It was a union shop, and they had a lot of commercial 1 and 2 story jobs that summer. The electricians knew I was his nephew, and they started out by treating me like shit. Those 2'x4' florescent box recessed lighting fixtures? One of my first jobs was to hand carry a few hundred of them up to the second floor from outside, walking up a temporary plank for both stories, and then placing them around the floor where they were to be installed.
They worked my ass off on those hot summer days. I nearly dropped, was dizzy from time to time, but never once complained. I was supposed to get all of the fixtures up to the second floor by the end of the day, but was coming up short. The last half hour, the lead guy said he was impressed what I did, and then the 3 electricians all pitched in and the job was completed.
When we got back to the shop at the end of the day, I got praise and my uncle was impressed.

I have actually driven past that building many times since. It sure looks a lot smaller now than it did then.

Late last night, before midnight, they filed suit in the SC against 4 states.

From Breitbart:

The State of Texas filed a lawsuit directly with the U.S. Supreme Court shortly before midnight on Monday challenging the election procedures in Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin on the grounds that they violate the Constitution.

Texas argues that these states violated the Electors Clause of the Constitution because they made changes to voting rules and procedures through the courts or through executive actions, but not through the state legislatures.
Additionally, Texas argues that there were differences in voting rules and procedures in different counties within the states, violating the Constitution's Equal Protection Clause. Finally, Texas argues that there were "voting irregularities" in these states as a result of the above.

In my non-legal mind, this should throw all of those states EC votes right into their state legislatures. And all are R. So the legislatures won't be able to ignore it any more. They all just got called into the middle ring, and will have to perform or have their state EV's canceled.

Being forced to vote, I would think they would begrudgingly give it to PDT.

If true, this happened under the 2018 Emergency Exec Order about voting fraud. One of the powers is the Fed gov can take all assets away from those found guilty participating in the fraud.
He could lose all his personal assets.

981 wow! more good news

https://tinyurl.com/y2muobfg

A suspected Chinese intelligence operative developed extensive ties with local and national politicians, including a U.S. congressman, in what U.S. officials believe was a political intelligence operation run by China's main civilian spy agency between 2011 and 2015, Axios found in a yearlong investigation.

Fang's ties to Eric Swalwell, which began when he was a councilmember for Dublin City, California, demonstrate China's long game.

Swalwell rose to prominence rapidly, and in late 2012 became one of the youngest members of the U.S. House.
In January 2015, Swalwell was assigned a seat on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, serving as the lead Democrat on the subcommittee on CIA oversight.

Details: Fang's earliest known engagement with Swalwell occurred through the Chinese Student Association. By 2014, she had risen in local political circles and developed close ties to Swalwell's office.

Fang "was a bundler" for Swalwell and other candidates, according to a Bay Area political operative with direct knowledge of her efforts. A current U.S. intelligence official confirmed her activity for Swalwell; a local elected official also said she brought in donors for other candidates. Bundlers persuade others to write checks for campaigns; they can bring in substantial sums of money as well as deepen the campaign's engagement with target communities, making bundlers a valuable and thus potentially influential ally to a candidate.

The Bay Area political operative who witnessed Fang fundraising on Swalwell's behalf was concerned whether donors she brought in were legally permitted to donate. They found no evidence of illegal contributions.
Fang facilitated the potential assignment of interns into Swalwell's offices, the political operative said. In at least one case, an intern recommended by Fang was placed into Swalwell's D.C. office, this person said. A current U.S. intelligence official confirmed the intern placement.....

Probably not, since McConell married into it.
Also, as the Axios article demonstrates, there are other ways to own a politician. What does CHYNA have on Kemp and Raffensperger in addition to kickbacks?

Kemp has been meeting with the head of the now-closed Houston China consulate. Trump shut it down because it was their hq for China spy activities.

You are cleared for 270°, ceiling unlimited.

"Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds -
and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of -
wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.
Hovering there I've chased the shouting wind along
and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air.
"Up, up the long delirious burning blue
I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
where never lark, or even eagle, flew;
and, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
the high untrespassed sanctity of space,
put out my hand and touched the face of God."

1044 Additional sports so girls can be champions same as the guys.

Well, not the physical ones like skateboarding and breakdancing. They're silly to include, but the men are still going to make audiences go WOW! while the girls make audiences watch something else unless they're wearing volleyball clothes.

1050 Some of the local restaurants have opened inside dining otherwise they'd go out entirely.

A friend of ours went to one and then posted on FB saying how nice it was to have a inside served meal especially when it's 30 degrees outside.

HOLY CRAP! she started to get all sorts of hateful messages from Karens that she was going to kill us all.
She took the post down.

People, Facebook is not your friend. Remember that

1051 >>Also, the "what the hell gender is that" game being played at home


Bob Costas: "And now, an 'up close and personal' moment with the break-out star of these games, American women's weightlifter Candi Kuznetsov and their non-binary, genderqueer partners at home in Austin with their alpacas -- WAIT, not that close, PULL BACK!. . ."

My family is bright and accomplished. Yet, I'm the troglodyte for not believing in masks, this vaccine, and doubting global warming.

It's a cult.

I knew people were pretty stupid on average (I don't discount myself in that group, btw), but I really didn't imagine this level of stupidity. It makes me sad, too. These are all people with high school degrees, and many with college or other advanced training.

Of course he did.
