PUSH BUTTON – RECEIVE BACON

LEWIS & CLARK’S GRAFFITI

Speaking of vandalism. At Pompey’s Pillar in Montana you can see the clear cursive signature of William Clark, one half of the superstar exploration duo, Lewis and Clark.

When Clark arrived at the rock it had already been extensively marked with American Indian petroglyphs. The local tribes had known the site as “the place where the mountain lion lies,” although it is unknown whether this name refers to the existence of any actual animals or the shape of the pillar itself. Clark also left his own mark, etching his name and the date deep into the rock face.

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION – BUY AMERICAN

I’ve never been one to make New Year’s resolutions, but I have one this year. I am resolving to put my money where my mouth is and assertively seek to buy American-manufactured products whenever possible. It’s not about self-improvement, it’s about good citizenship. Globalists and Principled Free Traders™ hate the average American. They desperately want to export every American job and shutter every manufacturing plant in America. They’re at war with us. Buying American is something we can do to fight back.

In the past week I had to buy some new dog-walking shoes and a new toilet seat. I made sure they were manufactured in the USA.

I try to only buy wines from the USA, but with Prosecco so popular right now, I’d like to find an American bubbly that tastes like it. Do any of you know of an American sparkling wine that tastes like Prosecco?

REPURPOSED TUNES

The alma mater of many universities (including Cornell, North Carolina, Kansas, Missouri, Syracuse, Vanderbilt, Georgia and dozens of others) – has the same beautiful tune. Before its lyrics were re-worked to become the school song at all these colleges, “Annie Lisle” was a 19th century folk song about the untimely death of a fair young lady.

It’s a shame that Cornell and other universities have gone from being the intellectual centers of western civilization to now leading the charge to deconstruct western civ. But at least they still have their lovely school song, at least for now. At Cornell, it has the word “heaven” in it. That could be problematic.

Here is the Cornell Glee Club singing “Far Above Cayuga’s Waters”

Below is Bobby Horton performing “Annie Lisle”. Here are some of the sad lyrics.

On a bed of pain and anguish
Lay dear Annie Lisle,
Changed were the lovely features,
Gone the happy smile.

Wave willows, murmur waters,
Golden sunbeams, smile!
Earthly music cannot waken
Lovely Annie Lisle.

PRODUCTS THAT FORCED YOU TO QUIT THEM

I’m not saddled with an Ivy League MBA or other intellectual handicaps like so much of America’s corporate leadership, so I marvel at how often they have chased off my business when I was a long-time, habitually loyal customer. All they had to do to keep my business was – nothing. I never even noticed the price increases.

Gillette, of course, made big news two years ago with their puzzling ad campaign in which they accused their loyal male customers of being bullies and sexual predators. I took that opportunity to switch to Schick because I didn’t want to use a brand that is associated with sexual predators. I had been a Gillette customer for more than 25 years when they ran me off.

About the same time, I also switched from using Dove Men’s anti-perspirant. I had used it for years and had never thought about switching until I started receiving bizarre gender-bending social media ads from them. Since I don’t wear a dress or pretend to nurse babies like the demographic they were targeting, I switched products.

It’s not just PC nonsense that has terminated my habitual product loyalty. I had used Zest soap for decades until they decided to reduce the size of the soap bar from 4.0 ounces to 3.5 ounces. The thought process was probably, “Each 3.5 oz bar will cost the consumer less than a 4.0 oz bar, but we’ll charge more money per ounce, therefore we’ll make lots more money!” Except that their new smaller bar became an annoyance, because it was in the sliver stage more often, and I was having to replace the bar more frequently. So – I switched to Dial, which is 4 ounces. That cute gimmick by Zest cost them a customer of several decades.
Similarly, Lean Pockets were once my daily breakfast until they did the same type of gimmick that Zest did. I haven’t had a Lean Pocket since.

What about y’all? Are there any products that you quit using, when all the company had to do to retain your business was – nothing – but they just couldn’t help themselves, so they messed with the product and ended up running you off?

WHAT HAPPENS TO HIMALAYAN SALT AFTER ITS EXPIRATION DATE?

So you buy some Himalayan salt that has been edible since the Year 249,997,982 B.C. only to have it go bad once it’s in your pantry. Bad timing.

TYPHOID KERRY

John Kerry is the Typhoid Mary of government officials. For over five decades he has wreaked havoc in every capacity in which he has drawn a government paycheck. For the first time in my adult life I fear for the climate, since John Kerry will now be in charge of protecting it in his role as Joe Biden’s “Special Envoy on Climate Change.”

FRACTIONALLY INTELLIGENT

Why No One Wanted A&W’s Third-Pound Burger

Alfred Taubman, who owned A&W at the time, wrote about the confusion in his book Threshold Resistance:

More than half of the participants in the Yankelovich focus groups questioned the price of our burger. "Why," they asked, "should we pay the same amount for a third of a pound of meat as we do for a quarter-pound of meat at McDonald's? You're overcharging us." Honestly. People thought a third of a pound was less than a quarter of a pound. After all, three is less than four!

THE WISDOM OF BENNETT CERF

Bennett Cerf was a publisher, a writer, a TV celebrity, a party goer, and a wise-cracking raconteur. Some of his quotes from the mid-20th century ring true today.

I think the right to read, is one of our inherent rights, and I think that people in America today are intelligent enough to decide for themselves what they want to read. Without being told, by self-appointed people, you must not read this, or you cannot read this.

One of the greatest threats facing book publishing, and the entire country for that matter, is censorship.

The Detroit String Quartet played Brahms last night. Brahms lost.

Censor: A self-appointed snoophound who sticks his nose in other people's business."

Politicians are like ships: noisiest when lost in a fog.

Gross ignorance is 144 times worse than ordinary ignorance.

Middle age is when your old classmates are so grey and wrinkled and bald they don't recognize you.

Oratory is the art of making a loud noise sound like a deep thought.

One of the troubles of the day is that we once came upon the little red schoolhouse, whereas now we come upon the little-read school boy.

FORGIVE ME FOR THE MEN I HAVE KILLED IN ANGER, AND FOR THOSE I AM ABOUT TO…

In a recent ONT I inquired what were some of your favorite scenes from Western movies. This scene from “The Cowboys” came up and it may well be the best scene of them all – Jedediah Nightlinger’s prayer when he was about to be hanged.

I regret having trifled with married women. I'm thoroughly ashamed of having cheated at cards. I deplore my occasional departures from the truth. Forgive me for taking your name in vain. My Saturday drunkenness, my Sunday Sloth. Above all, forgive me for the men I have killed in anger…and for those I am about to…

Bruce Dern was so impressively evil in his role as Long Hair in “The Cowboys” that his comedic role as outlaw Joe Danby in “Support Your Local Sheriff” makes for an offsetting palate cleanser.

THROCKMORTON’S FIRST LAW OF LIVE MUSIC: IF THERE’S AN UPRIGHT BASS IN THE BAND, IT’S PROBABLY GOING TO BE GOOD

The choice is between treasonous conspirators, or their co-conspirators. In reality, it looks like only about half of Republicans are traitors, at the Congressional level, vs ALL Dems. That half all need to be primaried. Letting Dems win is still a bit worse than keeping your Republican. There should be a huge anti-incumbent movement, bigger that the ones we've seen before.

61 Per last night's discussion about Ashli and the shot. Having worked with people who have disabilities, I would suggest she took a direct shot to the spinal cord and it immediately paralyzed her, from the neck down. Given the way she dropped like a rock, and observing her apparent limp limbs and the way her hands retracted, it is indicative of a neck level, spinal cord injury. Think of Christopher Reeve with his horse accident. She would have immediately lost the ability to breath on her own all other functions.

80 Buck, companies have been doing that product size shrinking trick since the 80s at least. Candy bars, chips, breakfast cereal, and fast food portions especially. They drop it fractionally every other year, and then come up with new "King" or "Family" size packages, which eventually are the same size the normal one was two decades before.

I don't know if there's an inside industry name for this one weird trick, but I've taken note of it since I was a teenager in the 80s. I wish I'd had the foresight to collect, say, Snickers packages every year from then until now.

They can't use this trick with milk or beer, yet. I thought they couldn't use it with coffee, flour, or sugar -- but lo and behold, they sure have. Pound of sugar? Howsabout 11.5 oz.?

That video I saw was so movie-like. Mysterious gun sticking out from the shadows, right in frame. Nobody shouts "Gun!" The gun just stays there pointing for seconds, as if for the camera. No cop saying "Halt, or I shoot!" No approaching the would-be intruder. No attempt to offer medical aide (at least by him/her). We never see the mystery killer. Some mysterious, obviously non-cop AND non-MAGA guy, shows up to take charge of the scene within about 5 seconds. So much more...

I quit buying Tide detergent and Crest toothpaste when P&G did the Gillette "men are bullies" commercial. I know I'm doing it wrong though. You are supposed to loudly demand the company change, not silently walk away and never look back.

But that's all ancient history anyway. It's B.S. (before Steal). Either the military steps in, or your vote doesn't matter anyway. If the country is saved, the Republican traitors who aren't in jail will be seeing primaries, or I'm with you - it really doesn't matter which Chinese agent gets in.

Pro-Tip on avoiding buying from China. If no other choice presents, try to buy it USED, perhaps from Craigslist or such. Xi already has his blood-money from whatever it is, but he won't get more from your second hand purchase.

No, it's not as good as putting money into an American's hand, but sometimes, it's gonna be the best you can do at the moment.

Same here. I have no problem buying nothing from Amazon but books on the Kindle. I can rationalize it by saying that books were their first product, and that Kindle really is the best thing for my 29 year-old eyes, but I'm prepared to buy hardcover books as backup. I always knew that you were 'renting' books by buying them on the Kindle, not buying them.

If you own something, you can lend it to someone else whenever you want to. You really can't do that with a Kindle 'book'.

And I recollect that dimension lumber has downsized. There was a time that a dressed 2X4 was 1 5/8 by 3 5/8, not 1 1/2 by 3 1/2.

I stayed away from McDs as long as they had that progressive CEO, about 5 years he was in that job.

And you're a dick if you shop at Dick's. I was at Academy Friday, hoping for some ammo, and I was in luck if only I had a 28 gauge shotgun.

Heh. I had a 2X4 here, and I called it "aircraft-grade spruce", because it was so twisted you could have made a propeller out of it. 45 degrees twist over 8 feet of stick. And it was cut right down the middle of the log; the growth rings were centered on a dot in the middle of the end.

I cut it into short pieces, so I was able to use it.

This is quite true, unfortunately.

The other problem is that, to build that pipe you're talking about, you'll need tens - if not hundreds - of millions of dollars. Bongino never had that kind of cash, of course. Rebekah Mercer is the real money behind the site, but she'll probably need the help of VCs to supercharge the growth. Unfortunately, all those VCs are either liberal, or live and work with someone who is. It will take a generation to build a proper intellectual and financial ecosystem.

I've read some "stories" about Amazon shutting down Parler. Parler is describe as a site like Twitter that right wing extremists are on with violent hate speech. The comments to those "stories" are Shut down the Nazis. Full Soviet comrades against anyone who will oppose the commies.

237 But Jesus is supposed to care about evil.

Well, Jesus?
Well, He said we'd have troubles in this world, and that the World would hate us because it hates Him. He didn't say much of anything about ending evil, until He comes back, and we don't have one proper man of lawlessness yet, though there are a bunch of candidates.

Probably not the Pope, since only a sixth of the world is Catholic, and those that are faithful are ignoring most of his nonsense. Probably not the head of the UN, because no one cares what he thinks. Probably not a US President, as we're China's bitch now. Probably not China's grand Pooh-bear, since China fits a lot better as the whore of Babylon. Probably not Soros, as no one would be surprised.

Same. This Christmas I made a deliberate effort to not purchase anything via Amazon. It was done. I had to pay a little more, but only used individual stores in my community. Some are owned by lefties, ironically. The additional costs were around 20 percent or so. No worries, it was worth it. Support your local merchants and service providers, and to the greatest degree possible, use cash for everything but hitting ace's tip jar.

285 What annoys me and turns me off is authors who virtue signal. When I still had my bookstore, if an author got up on the soapbox, I would no longer "hand sell" their books and I would shelve their books spine out rather than face out. Michael Connelly and David Handler. A gal who wrote a really good first fantasy novel that I pushed on to all of my fantasy reading customers. Her second book was a progressive screed and I immediately stopped selling the first. (Her third book has dropped off the edge of the galaxy, so I guess I'm not the only person she pissed off.) David Weber gets a little heavy handed with his conservative values every now and again.

Note the guns and tasers bobbing up and down a lot. Commands are made, but the shots are fired in a panic and not in response to any obvious danger, just the car jerking back and then moving forward. The woman driving wasn't armed, the deputy was just aggravated after a long chase.

291 Personally, I think that story about the third pounder and the quarter pounder was originally made up by Taubman, or misunderstood by him, and is now used by the anointed to say, the people we want to rule are stupid. Like the recent Olive Garden remark.

It makes very little sense. From a technical standpoint, it came from a focus group, yet is presented as if it were the results of a survey. From a logical standpoint, those idiots who are so innumerate as to think a third is smaller than a fourth, have to be numerate enough to know that a quarter is a fourth. And their half pound burger failed, too, even though nobody thinks a quarter is worth more than a half dollar.

That's how you do it. Also, before you delete your Facebook account, make you sure report/complain about 5 Liberals and hopefully wait long enough to escalate the complaint beyond the AI so a person has to deal with it. in other words, when you get the automated response back, make sure you reply that, no, you are not satisfied or whatever. Accuse them of anything you want if you are deleting your account anyway.

Still going through it. I'm amused to see the same kind of observations made outside, and some were making about the shooting inside. Stuff you notice that shows it's completely fake, you're waiting to hear "Cut!"

I'm a little embarrassed though. I judged the backpack as no big deal based on my seeing at least one other guy having one in the video. But this was inherently different from a Trump rally (and I've been to them). There was no perimeter with magnetometers. At a Trump rally, they might not even let you in with a backpack. For THIS event, you might have been on foot for many hours without access to food and such, and you never know what might happen, so it might have been a good idea to bring one.

407 My Amazon Prime account is paid up until next fall, but I canceled the free Disney+ account. After the "updated" version of Stephen King's The Stand (the only book of his that I've enjoyed re-reading), I buy paper copies.

Speaking of which, I bought a lot of Little Golden Books for next Christmas. The boxed set that came out on its 75th anniversary: Made in China. All the newer editions are made in the USA. Similarly, I replaced my old comforter with good old Pendleton bedding - label said "Made in China." But the wool cap was made in the US from American wool.

I used to buy imported goods from other countries, but Italy is off my list. Thanks to Wuhan flu's killing spree in Italy, I learned that much of Italian leather and textile industry has been bought up by Chinese.

408 I'm a little embarrassed though. I judged the
backpack as no big deal based on my seeing at least one other guy having
one in the video. But this was inherently different from a Trump rally
(and I've been to them). There was no perimeter with magnetometers. At a
Trump rally, they might not even let you in with a backpack. For THIS
event, you might have been on foot for many hours without access to food
and such, and you never know what might happen, so it might have been a
good idea to bring one.

Posted by: President-Elect Optimizer at January 09, 2021 11:11 PM (hOOi9)

Back packs and big bags were pretty ubiquitous. Everyone I knew brought one just because we were going to be there all day and food availability was going to be iffy. Some people even brought their own toilet paper just in case (not that they could use it because, as it turns out bathroom availability was almost nonexistent with no portapotties to be found and only one or maybe two parks facilities bathrooms open).

Posted on this last night. I always wondered why the Soviet Union felt the need to go through the charade of having a legislature that rubber-stamped what the Party leadership told them to pass. Surely if the Party were in charge, they didn't need to make the appearance of a legal process. Maybe they feared their hold on power wasn't quite as strong as they thought, and the appearance of legitimacy made it easier to maintain control.

In early 2017 some slimy red-pill type youtuber said that Trump would resign, feeling bored and stifled, in about 4 months. It was the acting that pissed me off. He gave a thoughtful gaze, his eyes up and away, mugging for the camera, as if he was deciding between 4 and 5. Weighing Trump's soul. Yeah I unsubbed him right there, I didn't wait. If he had been right, I would have remembered.

Heh. I used Amazon to order a battery for my old Alcatel flipphone that I have reverted to after my Blackberry died. In order to get free shipping, I signed up for the free trial of amazon Prime. Well, the battery came, and it was a dud. Had no charge in it, and would not accept a charge. Went back on Amazon, went to returns, and they agreed to send out another one. Got into an online chat with one of their "supervisors" after discovering I could not "return" a lithium battery owing to shipping restrictions on such items (why not send them by Tesla?). She said, "Just discard the dead one."

New battery came, it is good. I will not sign up for Prime once the free trial period expires. They sure didn't make much off me in this exchange.

Sorry to make you two double up on that, but Taqiyyologist came up with this earlier today, which includes pieces of what I could figure out myself so far, but added the missing pieces. The Solution to where this goes from here:

I had been ping-ponging between "He'll do something" and "He won't" because I couldn't make it all make sense at once. This solution makes sense of ALL the loose ends I had on my list, and explained EXACTLY Trump's "concession" messages as well. If it doesn't work exactly that way, it'll probably be something like it.

517 Steal this book idea:
Talking about companies that piss us off. Supposedly American Airlines learned that if they removed one olive from passenger meals, they could save $40k each year. So they did.***
Book Title: Give me back my olive
The concept of the book is that most companies, and most C suite people at those companies are not innovating anymore. They are just trying to cut costs, so that they can justify earning their ridiculous salaries. *Oh, we earned slightly more this quarter blah blah blah*
But most of these companies are just coasting. Just using the airline industry as an example. Is there really anything that Southwest or American or whatever airline is doing differently each year to justify having C suite level people? No. It is all the same stuff they have done for decades. So the concept of the book is to fire these expensive C suite people, and give back that savings to your customer in the form of a slightly larger piece of soap, etc.

I had figured out pieces, like the Constitutional process has run it's course, but it wasn't been done LEGALLY, so it's ILLEGITIMATE. As Commander-in-Chief he not only has the authority to drop the hammer on this, but the DUTY. My problem was, what about 20JAN? His term expires. This can't be done by then, I don't think.

I also had figured out that this could only be fixed using the military, with both the Legislative and Judicial branches having illegimitized themselves by co-conspiring with traitors. We've heard that military intel has the proof of foreign involvement. The military (at the least the parts we need for this) are white hats. The missing piece was to put THEM in charge when Trump's term expires. Deadlines in the Constitution have historically been broken in emergency circumstances. Trump gets sworn in LATER, after the military cleans up.

662 From the Parler guy:

How to Help
1) Tuesday come back to Parler . Com OR use the side loaded version of android OR use your already installed versions of Parler. (or maybe we will be back on the stores)
2) Check your email and spam for messages from Parler
3) Call, write and email your congressman and senators and expose this anti-competitive behavior. On both sides of the aisle.
4) Cancel your Amazon subscriptions and dump Apple. Google/android is not much better, but it will have to do until the Linux phones are finally ready.
5) DO NOT leave angry messages however DO complain politely to Amazon, Google, Apple via mail and via phone.

We should be operational with less then 12 hours of downtime after Amazon abruptly pulls our access. This is unprecedented.

Posted by: t-bird at January 09, 2021 10:10 PM (oBAbT)

Idk how to feel about Smithfield. Their plant is next to ours and pulls from local farms to produce pork, but they are owned by the Chinese. The outbreak in their Sioux Falls plant was caused by Chinese executives getting around the travel ban by going through Europe to get to South Dakota, which isn't really the fault of the American workers. I don't buy any of their stuff anyway, but I do feel for them.

He then turns and jogs up the stairs. At the top, he turns to his left to go up another flight of stairs but pauses first, as if waiting for the crowd to catch up with him. With each flight, he repeats the same actions, turning, and waiting."

The thing all these articles miss though, and my other Hero of the Month DOES get, I think, is that all this finger-pointing about violence is pointless too. Maybe they can get in trouble for saying the plain truth, which is that our elected officials have violated every election law, up to and including those in the Constitution, and done so 100,000 times over. Having done so - violating the one thing that gives elections integrity, our votes - they have no legitimacy at all, and the Constitution is pretty much out the window. With that having happened we still have a founding document to offer us guidance on what we are obliged to do, the Declaration of Independence, in the preamble:

"...Governments are instituted ..., deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it. ..."

In terms of conspiracy rallying cries though, it doesn't translate in their heads to "but it can weaken the structure to the point of failure" but instead becomes "therefore W must've blown up the towers with explosives".

The ability to skip completely past the parsimonious explanation straight to the extraordinary. And the statement made becomes the evidence for the extraordinary assertion.

The day of, I was sure there had been explosions which brought each tower down.

It was a bit of optical illusion (maybe bad pattern recognition) in that the collapsing material, which was solid, pushed the air between floors (which was full of flame since that's where the structural failure was) away from the building which looked like an explosion that appeared simultaneous with the drop of the upper floors. And of course we've seen plenty of building demolitions and it appeared similar.

I had a history teacher that pretty much drilled that into our heads. If you don't learn from history you're doomed to repeat it was his favorite line. This guy was a walking dictionary on anything US history, especially the revolution and civil war. One smart mofo. He did also say, and I'll never forget it, that we (our class) might eventually know what the founders had to deal with. Can't remember the exact words, but it was along those lines. Talk about reading the tea leaves. He never elaborated why though. I'm guessing that gargantubrain of his was sensing things.

I have to disagree. The Government and Left has shown that Political Terrorism works. They have used it to scare the whole damn government system into complying with their 'demands'. From BLM to Climate Shit... the Government HAS bowed to political terrorism.

The RIGHT is slow to play that card. BUT... eventually, it did. Many here are still saying this can be fixed without violence... they condemn ANY violence from our side.

We have been talking about leaving smartphones, at leastfor me. Husband's work requires access to emails via mobile device. I think...

As I've said before here, we haven't had a tv for about 10 year, and no commercial radio for five years. We do have an emergency radio.

We are "anywhere but China" buyers. I have been for years, anyway. And I would NEVER buy any food, for man or beast, from China. A good half of canned fish on a store's shelf is from China, and a lot in the fresh and frozen case, too.

Just so you're aware, near the beginning, the was some old guy who punched some jerk who was probably there to incite exactly that. At the time, Trump was hinting, or downright saying, to go ahead and shut these assholes up, and he'd pick up the legal tab. Personally, that struck me as being very practical and efficient. That crap would have stopped immediately.

But this is a world of lawyers, and it doesn't work that way. Pretty soon afterwards, that policy was reversed, and people were explicitly briefed not to do that, but to summon security instead. Every rally had interruptions requiring crazies to be literally picked up and carried out.

So there WAS the one guy. But you're 99.99999% right.

I will add, colonists were beating, tarring and feathering King George's tax collectors way back to 1765... which was the same year that Patrick Henry gave the speech where he said " Caesar had his Brutus, Charles I had his Cromwell and King George... should profit from their example" to cries of "Treason, Treason" from the House of Burgess.

I was just quoting from the Preamble to the Constitution: "...Governments are instituted ..., deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or abolish it. ..."

It's not required, or expected, for the abolished govt to leave peacefully. That's what the 2nd Amendment is for.

The entire social contract of the Constitution is based on free and fair elections. When that's been violated, the deal is off. Besides the fact that The SCOTUS and Congress have not lived up to their Constitutional requirements. I like to think my ancestors would have had this problem solved on 06JAN, and we'd have about 2/3 of Congress to re-elect in emergency elections right now. The penalty for treason is in the Constitution too.

1094 > Politics is not covered.

It is in California.

Not that a California court would ever enforce that to the benefit of a deplorable, but it's in there.

No employer shall make, adopt, or enforce any rule, regulation, or policy:

(a) Forbidding or preventing employees from engaging or participating in politics or from becoming candidates for public office.

(b) Controlling or directing, or tending to control or direct the political activities or affiliations of employees.

I heard once that you just have to have a Swiss ancestor, which I do. I'm not sure if that's real, or if it changed since then. It's definitely an interesting place.

I read some history on it once, talking about the time that period when my ancestor left. It had kind of tone to it like "You didn't have to leave, times were tough but they got better after a while". It hit me: Normal countries are EMBARRASED when people leave. They don't claim an obligation of the US to accept people who want to flee them.

already used it to put up two ceiling pieces, and it was a piece of

and electrical boxes, and also cutting panels to fit the space
available. Nothing is truly square or standard size.

But I didn't really hear any such thing in January. Could they, Antifa, have known what would transpire on the 6th and laid low so as not to dilute the Democrat's and MSM's cry that MAGA supporters are domestic terrorists?

There were some Antifa infiltrators in the crowd but they were generally well behaved or got tackled by patriots when they didn't behave. Also, there were a few guys there that were dressed in desert camos and with flack helmets marked "SECURITY" who said they were Sovereign Citizens.

Aka, the Mohs scale, it's a measure of what scratches what.

Diamond, with a hardness of 10, used to be at the very top of the Mohs scale, but a couple of synthetics have a higher hardness. But for all practical purposes, diamond is King Hardon. Diamond dust slurry is used to polish diamonds. And so on.

Eggshells, aka calcium carbonate, has a hardness of 3. It won't scratch anything with a higher hardness, such as glass, porcelain, or steel. It's used in formulations like Soft Scrub.

1164 The only sneakers I've worn over the last 6 or so years have been New Balance, it had nothing to do with being an American company, just that they were comfortable and i liked how the 574s are a bit unique in thier colors and style, which i wanted to add to my normal attire of plain jeans and a t-shirt. I wish even those ones were made in the USA, since I'm not crazy about the 9 inch heel on the American made ones, though I felt a little bit better knowing the company is trying to at least still do even the tiniest bit for American manufacturing. It's also not a scam like say American apparel, where they made stuff in the US and gave incentive pay to thier workers, which still boiled down to a cost of 25 cents a shirt, which they then sold for $40 because it wad made in the USA.

1171 1150 Alright, a possible audience of two -- I can BUILD on this.

In Conan The Barbarian, there's a scene where he's sharpening his sword with a rock. It depends on the rock.

Steel has a rough hardness of 5.5. So does sand. Carborundum has a hardness of 9. So does ruby and sapphire. They are chemically close to the same. It will scratch most anything but diamond.

Carborundum is sometimes referred to as "sandpaper".

Ha! I was a little kid when I first saw that movie. Earlier in the day, my dad had been looking all over for his whetstone so he could sharpen his weapons (he was into martial arts), and he couldn't find it. When Conan was sharpening his sword with that rock, my dad said, "Oh, hey, there's my whetstone! He found it!" I just busted up laughing at that for some reason. My dad got annoyed and said, "It wasn't THAT funny."

They haven't realized that they shot themselves in the face. Only a country inhabited by Christians and ruled by God can be governed successfully. They no longer have that.

Even getting out of BoA, I still have credit cards or the like with others, they make sure it's tough to not be connected to thier shit.

I also wonder if there's a good way to take advantage of all the offers they give, like "Deposit $X and stay for 6 months and get $X from us" jumping around from bank to bank, or depositing in multiple banks, then jumping ship after getting paid, if your going to put money there anyway (which they'll make money off of) might as well get some of it back from them.

Not looking ago i saw an article, might have been about Amazon, that basically said just as much. It was a puff piece about how efficent they was, and thier workers can do everything they want right within the campus and gst thirst pay on company cards to make things easier!

I'd assume the author was young idiot who doesn't know anything that occurred before 1995, and has no idea about the railroad and coal miner situations, but even if they did they'd probably still suck Amazon's d*ck. Lefties are going to go full anti-union (considering those situations were the only times unions were actually needed) to please thier masters.

The Fred Meyers and QFC's (now Kroger owned) and Safeway/Albertsons in Puget Sound were generally stocked up this last holiday season, of course there were a few things sold out once in a while, seasonal spices, but no overall shortages. And Costco had all their stuff, which is only the common stuff like vanilla and cinnamon, not other stuff, of course.

Posted by: four seasons at January 10, 2021 04:20 AM (PisyI)


It's the Santilli video i believe. There's info about an Italian prosecutor testifying someone in the vote company Leonardo SPA signed an affidavit (or something to the sort) saying he met with officials about changing voters from Trump to Biden.

Also a few screenshots that are supposedly Pelosi's contact list, and they're saying that good people have 7 harddrives and her laptop, and that she'll be arrested Monday (according to Thomas McInerny)

I'd like to believe it, but it feels like every "100% true and trusted source with thier ears at thre highest level of government" thing we've heard for the last 8 months about everything from Russia to stolen elections. If the DoJ didn't arrest Hillary with all the evidence they had, or Hunter, I doubt they'll touch Nancy.

It's hopeful, probably wishful thinking, but I'd ultimately assume just another way to try to get ratings (hope I'm wrong)

Spray-on oven cleaner makes a decent improvised weapon.

From the looks of it, it seems she put out a fame seeking sex tape with someone who probably banged all the Kardashians and Jenners, so she's gotta contend with their group of psychopaths. Also she's like a 5/10 at best, and like a 2/10 for Asian girls.

Also, to Rodrigo's comment, as much as i actually do like tattoos on girls (depending on the girl and tattoo) i can't for the life of me understand this new "Giant Underboob Tattoo" era we're in, I've seen some that are possibly the stupidest things I've ever seen, and they are on highly attractive woman.

1241 1222 --President-Elect Optimizer

Given that Santilli goes all the way back to the Bundy Ranch stand-off, I'd say A) He's one of the "good guys", and B) he has a wide enough 'on line' presence that he's been selected drip things out.

Bear in mind that there's a major information / misinformation battle going on; most everybody here KNOWS that the DS / Big Tech crowd is in turbo mode to cut all major lines of communication between Trump and the general population (let alone his supporters).

The key is knowing what is signal, and what is 'noise'.

The amusing / scary part of the video is the confirmation that Alex Jones is not a crazy man...he's a prophet. And the Bonus Irony Round: that the Sword of Domination (the EMS comms system) forged for Obama (and Hillary) is firmly in the grasp of Trump.

I'm at the Italian guy part. I had heard about the Italians before, but from a sort of kooky conspiracy site, and wasn't sure I should buy it, since "Why Italy?" That seems to be coming out in other places now, and this video shows it's legit. From what I was told on that other site, this is the smoking gun.

1249 RE: Trust The Plan

I fully understand the doubt, and expect it, but let me ask you this: has Trump conceded? Answer: No. Does Trump's past history indicate somebody who's a 'quitter'? IMO, no.

The best analogy I've seen thus far is this: When is the best time to nab a crook? Answer: when he's coming out the window with a big of loot in his hands. Trump has made a point of following the the Rule of Law during ALL of this; every legal, Constitutional route has been taken to it's logical end. That leaves only one door left. As a bonus, *everybody* who's on the side of The Swamp has stepped out into the light...THAT has been the one factor that caused any (seeming) hesitation... WHO is on my side, WHO is in the enemy camp. The importance of knowing that is worth it's weight in gold.

If you've taken The Oath, and understand the FULL weight of that oath, then you KNOW what comes next, and has to be done.

This is not a game; this is for the The Republic. If I had the LEAST bit of doubt that Trump understands this, I would say so, and condemn him without mercy. I've been quietly following this for 2+ years, and said little about it on AoSHQ. To be con't.

I work for a regional grocery chain, and we cannot get any McCormicks spices. We just discontinued some staples like one of their cinnamon products due to unavailability. Before Thanksgiving we received our regular holiday shipment of seasonal spices (vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, etc.). What used to last the entire Thanksgiving/Christmas holiday season, was sold out in two weeks. Due to lock downs and limited family gatherings, everyone is cooking the same dishes/meals. Supply simply can't keep up with demand.

This makes perfect sense and I think answers the mystery.
There were some of those specialty spices like ground cloves. Couldn't find any and needed it for a holiday drink mix recipe. Found some whole cloves and ground the heck out of them. I don't use celery salt but have seen it in some gravies and sauces before. Probably other stuff, too.
I'm adding some of those spices I use rarely to the next shopping list, just to make sure I always am stocked.

1267 One thing I had been wondering is that when Trump's term expires, and it sounds like he doesn't expect the smoke to clear before then, how do you get around acting President Pelosi? Well, since she's going to be under arrest, I guess we may not have to worry about that, although I suppose they can elect a new speaker pretty quickly. Maybe they'll get into that later in the show. Or maybe it's just martial law, and that stuff is suspended for a while.

Even Lincoln didn't have to deal with two branches of government, and BOTH parties, conspiring with a hostile power to turn over the US to a puppet of theirs.

IMO, the FBI & CIA are "combat ineffective", too many Black Hats in control, or acting as 'gate keepers' (that why the info on Pelosi's laptop is NOT in the hands of the FBI). I don't have Durham's ear, or his confidence, but there's a mountain of sealed warrants waiting to go somewhere...we shall see what we shall see.

The new CCP regime of round-eyes that takes over could be seen as a military event, not a fair and honest election.
Now what I have found interesting is how, out of nowhere, Pelosi and haters suddenly demand Trump immediately resign, or they will immediately start impeachment.
Why? He has what, 12 days left? He won't release a lot of classified info because he would be at legal risk for not giving it the time to redact a few names and such. So what is left?
I have not waivered from my Trump support, and I'm not starting now. Let's get this party started, Mr. President.

1294 I would really enjoy that show if it happens, because the other scenario I picture isn't good.

1295 1271 -- Berserker-Dragonheads Division

Fun Fact: a few months back, Trump activated, and sent, 500+ NG MPs to GITMO.

And yes, I did wonder why he'd do something that.

I guess I know why now.

Amen, Ero!!
And good morning.
Also, time for me to start getting my heart more in gear for late morning and early afternoon. Food for the spirit then food for the body with close brothers and sisters. Besides, the folks who are smarter than PDJT are showing up. Lord knows, if they're smarter than him, they're way too smart for me to hang out with.

1297 No, Progda Sunday shows.

It wasn't "a siege".
Last summer, that would be Portland, Seattle, Oakland, Minneapolis, Philadelphia, Chicago, Milwaukee, Kenosha, New York City, and a number of others.
Ask those citizens and immigrants who lived there what they thought was "a siege".
Gaslighting should be a felony, minimum 10 years in prison.

1298 I'd like to believe it, but it feels like every "100% true and trusted source with thier ears at thre highest level of government" thing we've heard for the last 8 months about everything from Russia to stolen elections. If the DoJ didn't arrest Hillary with all the evidence they had, or Hunter, I doubt they'll touch Nancy.

It's hopeful, probably wishful thinking, but I'd ultimately assume just another way to try to get ratings (hope I'm wrong)

There are certain people I consider credible, and General McInerny is one of them. They have actual video of the Italian guy, talking about the smoking gun. This isn't just unsupported nonsense from some conspiracy site.

They knew there would be a demonstration at the Capitol, so of course they would try to infiltrate it ands grab evidence. This is Special Ops, not some garden club. Why do you THINK Pelosi is suddenly losing her mind, more than usual?

Trump told us 06JAN would be wild; this is what he was talking about. He told us things would be revealed over the following two weeks, This is the start of that reveal.

1299 1293 -- So much prison time

And look forward to Soros (your paymaster) getting either A) dropped off the Hungarian border for further processing, or B) being served a warrant (that's taped on to the body of a Hellfire missile).

Good times...

1300 1242 - President-Elect Optimizer

Please remember that the Italian govt (IC community?) was the "helping hand" in getting Halper's 'chance' meeting with a Trump staffer (name escapes ATM)... which provided ammo for A) the Steel dossier 'credibility', and B) gave MI5 the excuse needed to spy on the Trump campaign, then pass that intel on to Obama / Brennan / DS, leading to the FISA warrants on Trump.

Trust me, there's more than one Rabbit Hole involved here; Italy is just one of them.
Posted by: CPT. Charles at January 10, 2021 05:31 AM (W+kMI)

VERY interesting! It makes more sense now. Another thing occurred to me that's a bit disturbing though. It's saying US embassy employees drove this. About the only Ambassador I know off the top of my head is the Italian one. She's married to Newt Gingrich.

1306 The one thing that was always in my mind was when that admiral dude told trump he was being spied on. I have a nasty vengeful streak, and I'm probably a piker next to trump, so I always thought what would I do with that info over the next 4 years, and whatever it was trump would probably do 10X more. I had always wondered if they war gamed a shitload of stuff. I guess we'll see.

1307 >>It wasn't "a siege".

Activist group Adbusters planned and announced "Siege on DC" that was to start on Spet 17 and last until election day. The demanded Trump leave the WH by election day -- regardless of the results -- or they would drag him and his family out. Just days before it was to start they rebranded is as a "freeform jazz festival" -- think this happened right after polling showed that the riots, including the recent DC riots where the WH was underseige by BLM and antifa, were really hurting Biden and Dem candidate.

THAT was a planned siege.

Don't wake me up; I'm really enjoying this dream.
It's just weird that the Capitol has fencing quickly installed. All the Jan 6 Trumpsters have gone home. In WA state, same thing in Olympia, where the all-Blue legislature convenes tomorrow.
An aggressive counter measure, where there was no actual original measure of this size. Yeah, this is really weird shit that I haven't seen in my lifetime, not even in the late-60's - early 70's at the peak of the Vietnam protests.
Maybe this happens all the time in the CCP, I wouldn't know.

1312 Not fair, not remotely. I love free trade, but this is because (unlike many others) I think the United States has much to offer. Besides, if I wanted to export every manufacturing job we have (the ONLY JOBS we are supposed to have, apparently - I think we can and should do, well, everything), you could explain why I drive a vehicle made in MI, among many other U.S.-made products I have.

Oh yeah, and I got New Balance. It's a quality product. The fact that they are made in the U.S. just is more chips in the pot.

(And if you have a valid passport, congratulations, you are in fact a globalist.)

1313 1087 I agree except its worse than that in the case of shoes. They were probably completely made in china and sent to the US for the laces to be put in, or assembled.

1315 I have been to The Land Where They Cannot Do Fractions. It was at a Hardee's in South Carolina. The two math majors behind the counter steadfastly refused to believe that a 1/4 lb burger was smaller than a 1/3 lb burger, 4 being larger than 3. They wanted to upcharge me for requesting a 1/4 lb patty instead of a 1/3. I sighed and bought the larger.

1316 A really good Amerrican version of Prosecco is made by Gruet Winery in New Mexico USA. Reasonably priced too about $13-14.

1319 Lost all good vibes from James Garner when he played a "Bill Clinton" character in My Fellow Americans (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0117119/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_25). Like always, the Dem is a lovable rouge while the Republican ex-presz has no redeeming features (even steals soap from the hotel).

Hate him. Really hate Jack Lemon. Hate Lauren Bacall. Hate the whole cast.

Screw them ALL!

Used to like their oblong-shaped chicken sandwich. Then they did..something...and it became dry and tasteless (pre-Covid, even!) Still loved me the occasional Whopper, though.

Then came the picture they put out of The King snogging The Clown.

Nevermore.

1321 Bennet Cerf's son, Christopher, when he was a member of the Harvard Lampoon in 1962, recorded a record "The Harvard Lampoon Tabernacle Choir Sings Live from Leningrad Stadium". It's on YouTube now. Great songs labout having a radioactive girlfriend "Fallout Filly", an illicit romance between John Foster Dulles and Mrs. Krusczhev, the new dance craze "The Penguin", and a quartet of songs "Sweet Teenage Cadaver" mournfully singing about a date who died of carbon monoxide poisoning while necking at Inspiration Point in a car with a leaky muffler. Funniest shit ever. Cerf was head writer and lyricist for Sesame Street. His collaborator, Michael Frith (a Bermudian) from '63 and former Presidet of the club/magazine collaborated with Dr. Swiss and was main art director for Jim Henson and the muppets.
