To ONT Or Not To ONT, That Is The Question

Well, here we are. Thursday again. Unfortunately, I find myself agreeing with the Doc_0 tweetstorm that Ace posted earlier today. We certainly live in interesting times.

Persistence

This is kind of neat. Alex Smith plays quarterback for the Washington Redskins (Fuck WFT. I refuse to kowtow to the racist element that wants to erase the contributions of Native Americans to our culture). Last year he suffered a horrific leg injury requiring major surgery.

Smith 2.jpg

Well, he worked his ass off and got back on the field this year. A friend took all of the hardware that had been holding his leg together.....and made him a version of the Lombardi trophy for his hero wall. This is his wife on Instagram:

Smith 1.jpg


Speaking Of Sports

I say old bean, I'm only 80 yards from the cup. Hand me my jigger, would you?

Do You Know the Names of Old Golf Clubs?

I'm going to have to start using these the next time I play golf with my dad.

Handy Around The House

Here's a couple of videos I found showing someone making tools from stuff he had laying around. I understand the urge, my dad once made a rock polisher from an old paint can and a rotisserie motor he found in his shop. He's never polished a rock in his life, but sometimes it's fun to just look at things and think “What could I do with this?” Now these are both from the same channel, and the guy obviously has a well equipped shop, so he doesn't really need either of these machines (unless he maybe had a pressing need for a large number of S-shaped rebars), but I think this kind of stuff is neat.



Have I Got A Deal For You!

3200 sq ft. 3 bedrooms, 4 baths. Less than $160K! There's only 2 problems.

A) It's in Detroit

B) Well, just look at this place

I say this in all sincerity: There's something to be said for making your place your very own. If that's the décor they wanted, good for them for going our and doing it.

Related: One of you 'rons asked me why I chose to move to east Texas, and why I chose east Texas rather than other parts of the state. Well, the big cities are blue, like cities everywhere. West Texas is a desert and south Texas is an oven. The north Texas high plains get snowstorms worthy of Illinois and are filled with people who can drive in snow about as well as Floridians. East Texas is lovely and green (most of you have seen some of the pictures I've posted of my backyard), although I have no doubt if we got a snowstorm the drivers around here would make those north Texans look like Chicago natives. Tyler is the most conservative city in America. It's got everything I want except for some of the real big city stuff like a symphony or an NFL team, and if I want those things Dallas is only 90 minutes away. There were two reasons we settled on Tyler. #1) We wanted Little to continue his education in Catholic schools, and there's a good one here. They're not that common here in the south outside of big cities, and what would be the point of moving from Baltimore to, say, Atlanta? #2) We frankly fell in love with the property we purchased, and those two things determined our decision. Honestly, we didn't see the property in person until the morning we closed, and we were pretty damn nervous about it, but it turned out to be everything we'd hoped it would be.

What's it like to live here? Well, last night I went out to the local for a beer. There was a guy there, he wasn't drinking, he was waiting for one of the employees to get off work. When he shifted position a pistol fell out of his pocket and clattered to the floor. Nobody blinked, the guy next to him just said calmly “Dude, you dropped your gun”. What's not to love about a place where people have an attitude like that?*

*And yes, I do have an issue with the guy's gun handling. He had obviously taken it off his belt and stuffed it in his hoodie pocket, it was still in its holster, for what reason I do not know. Maybe he didn't want it to print against his back as he leaned on the bar? Beats me, but he was very, very careless and I will call him out for that. But the attitude of everyone else? “Dude, you dropped your gun”. Perfect.


Baba Yetu

Baba Yetu is The Lord's Prayer in Swahili. This song was written by composer Christopher Tin for the game Civilization V (Still the best Civ game, fite me). I saw Tin conduct a selection of his works, from video games and elsewhere, at Carnegie Hall in New York a few years ago and it was a magical experience, one of the best concerts ever. This song clams and soothes me, and in these turbulent times, we all could use a little calming. Just sit back, close your eyes, find your center, and let the peace of the Lord wash over you. Not the potter, but the potter's clay. Amen (NOT a-freakin-woman!)

30 Greetings:

I couldn't help but feel sorry for Alex Smith, Washington Progressive Football Club's current quarterback.

When He came up with the 49ers, I thought the used him poorly neglecting to use his running ability enough. Then his injuries caught up with him and the team replaced him with Kaerpernack, the activist/quarterback.

He did well in KC but more injuries again and a younger very longer future replacement. He's certainly due for a bit of luck and another of success.

I have an orphanage in the West African country of Gambia that I've been giving money to every month since about May last year and unfortunately I was notified this morning that the main building has been badly damaged in a fire and now 77 kids have no roof over their heads.

If you can spare a few pfennigs and would like to help out, please e-mail me at:

EventHorizonEscapee - at - gmail - dot - com, and I'll send you some photos and the details of how to send the orphanage some money to help, if you can.

Nothing comes to me of anything that you are kind enough to send.

God bless you all and thank you.

What kind of jobs or wealth do people have that they can just up and move to another state?

My job is state-specific plus there are aging relatives to consider.

Posted by: Jewells45TRUMPWON! at January 07, 2021 10:09 PM (nxdel)

Yah I've seen that. I think smith gets a pretty bad rap. He was drafted a no win situation with unrealistic expectations and then they don't don't use him properly. He goes to KC and is honestly a top 10 qb but the drafting of ma homes while making total sense forces the trade to the REDSKINS and he plays well there until an injury that almost ended his life. Lots of respect for that dude even tho he's obviously not the qb he was once upon a time.

84 36 Its so interesting to read you folks in comparison to the conservative twitter folks. They are practically chortling with glee about what's coming.
And they say Trump's speech tonight was to cool the jets of the people who are trying to scramble a 25th amendment argument on the quick. Notice he didn't mention Biden, and didn't actually concede.
Congress is panicking because they are very worried. You should ask yourselves why, and stop moping so much

You realize the Q anon stuff and the Mikaes Fiona account so many people love is all bullsh*t. Please recognize that. I personally caught the MF mistaking a B1 bomber for a B2 bomber. That account claims it is former Air Force intelligence. I guarantee you no AF Intel veteran would ever make that mistake. I do not know who runs the Q stuff, but it is all designed to fool you. The Jeff Sessions fan fic back in 2017 to 2018 was a huge tell. Silent Sessions setting people up behind the scenes? Trust Sessions, trust Barr, trust the plan because of Jesus? Sorry, obvious scary propaganda.

Posted by: Iasonas

In my case I retired early with no debt. My wife did also. My parents and in-laws have all passed so I'm not tied to a spot. My two sets of grandbabies live 1000 miles apart so, most possible areas are equally good/bad.

Maybe most importantly - I saved the shit out of my earnings. When I open my wallet, George Washington rubs his eyes.

The main problem is that all three branches are corrupt, so there are no checks and balances. There's no "consent of the governed" because there are no honest elections, which is why Biden didn't even fell it was necessary to campaign.
The people in charge are looting the taxpayers, because there hasn't been a budget in a dozen years even though a yearly budget is a constitutional requirement.
So that's why I think Trump's presidency is a military intel operation, to fix this massive problem.

There's a distinction between little c conservativism and big C Conservativism. Most humans are by nature little c conservative, that is having status quo bias. By the liberal-reactionary spectrum Conservatism since inception has been both a liberal and reactionary movement(which is why the spectrum is a poor one). That is it proposed policies that had previously existed and policies not yet in place(most ideologies unavoidably are like this).
Under the little c conservative definition all existing governments at any time are inherently conservative, the term in consequence isn't very useful. Granted Conservative isn't a great choice of name but like capitalist it wasn't chosen by the bearers.

And you may ask why Q named "Ezra Cohen Watnik" in a post two years to the day before he was suddenly appointed by Trump to his current position.

174 Something I just posted on FB -

A lot of people are going to want to compare the Capitol riots to the "summer of love." It's only natural. And I feel some here have already done so - that the 2020 riots, while awful, were in response to a legitimate grievance, and election malfeasance is not a legitimate grievance because there's no proof of it.

But to me, it seems the target is just as important as the reason. Look, the Capitol riots were categorically the wrong way to handle this - they were destined to do nothing but give fuel to the left for more restrictions on the right wing - but it was people who felt the government is oppressing them attacking a government building. Sure, some of the summer riots targeted govt buildings - police stations and court houses - but they also targeted small businesses and local chain stores. The destruction was indescrimenate.

If you're being abused by your spouse, I believe all of us would say killing that person is the wrong way to proceed. But what BLM did is like being abused by your spouse and in return killing the family dog. Not only was your shot a complete misfire, it wasn't even aimed in the right direction.

Congress is panicking because they are very worried. You should ask yourselves why, and stop moping so much
If Trump held all the cards, why would he do a hostage video? He'd be taking hostages.

How about, Pence didn't allow the 25th because he's a respectable human being, and Trump is all out of cards and is playing politics to keep his Twitter account and ass out of jail.

MAGA folks don't go to an event w/ plastic shields, backpacks and just don't look like the instigators who broke into the Capitol. Most are there for a peaceful protest, few are ready for battle. Tho antifa comes prepared for battle.

I'll bet you that all the damage in the Capitol was done by antifa and not MAGA types. They don't do that generally.

BLUF: there is no magic play coming. No 8th dimensional chess. Trump will be lucky to leave in HMX-1 like his predecessors and I doubt very much they will allow him to do that.
As I stated before, if he is allowed to leave with a modicum of dignity- hell- leave as a free citizen and not under indictment or arrest- he can serve as a rallying point. But I don't think they will do that. He pissed in the Wheaties of too many libs and too many GOP grifters. Now it is about revenge and destroying him and his family. And as someone has pointed out, if they can do that to a sitting President- stymie his every move- then imagine what they can do to YOU.

Where I am (Alaska), Republican, non-partisan, or undeclared voters can vote in the Republican primary, and any registered voter can vote in the Democrat primary, so you don't even lose that.

I'm sure these rules vary a lot from one state party to another.

All bets are off for next time, as we're moving to "ranked choice" primary voting, in which the top four primary vote getters, regardless of party, move on to the general election.

you get it amigo. I said this very thing to a co-worker. And I must say I have to hold Trump responsible for not throwing down on ANTIFA and BLM over summer. I have friends that were present at those shitshows in Seattle and Portland. Insurrection those were- masked, armed thugs throwing molotov cocktails and blinding cops. But hey- attacking Nazis is good to go. After the first attack he should have taken the gloves off- and I kept waiting for him to do so- but he didn't. And so here we are. The Libs will take the gloves off to pummel and kill us.
The old adage, "When in charge, be in charge" still rings true.

He's spent and worse- he knows he was betrayed by the very people who told him they were with him (staff, appointees etc).
All that he has is his family. And he knows the absolute and unimaginable power of the Federal government and its ability to take things- such as money, time and lives. And I think he knows where this is leading- not just for him personally- but for all of us.

It sure is.

I won't say that no state has it (there are a lot of weird things in state constitutions) but I am unaware of any state whose constitution authorizes the state to pay for primary elections for political parties.

Primaries are a fairly recent development in most of the country anyway. Caucuses or the good old-fashioned smoke-filled back room were de rigeur for most of our history.

--
I also call that Argument by No Sense of Scale.

Of course human sacrifice--it even the "religious idea" that God granted me so your stuff, do I'll just take it now--is going to have to run into the Law. Perhaps even a belief in controlled substances as part of ritual.

However, it's not arguable that refusing to but abortifacients for somebody is inherently in conflict with ordered society. But you can't just roll over rights of conscience because a slasher hears the "voice of God" and "feels it's right".

That's just leveraging the ambiguity as an absolute in a context of equity. Get out of the conversation if you have so little competence.

On the rioters: Find them, drag them out of their basements, and bring them to justice. Use all resources, whatever it takes, with focus and speed. We have pictures of half of them; they like to pose. They larked about taking selfies and smiling unashamed smiles as one strolled out with a House podium.

377 Tyler is a nice place and it is the closest Rudy's location to my home!

When I retired from the Coast Guard, my wife and I wanted to move somewhere with good schools (we had my youngest son and daughter still at home), easy access to good fishing and beaches and an active military base with exchanges and other facilities we could use.

We thought about staying in the Mobile area, but we weren't jazzed about how far the city is from beach (Gulf Shores/Orange Beach is an hour and half away from our old home) and the crime was starting to become a problem (my truck was broken into before we left at the mall).

We went scouting in NW Florida, where we always went on beach vacations, found a waterfront home that needed some work, but had good bones and we've been here for 12 years now. I wake up every morning at sunrise to watch it rise over the bay and go out fishing most days I'm not working. Since my civilian job is at Eglin, my commute is short and easy. I've met so many military retirees and we love to get together, both with our families and in the military-centric bars for a few cold ones.

They fumed about his casual mention of intelligence to Israel. And none of these idiots even breathed into a paper bag long enough to recall that when the President declassified information, it's declassified. That is his prerogative as the one vested with all executive power.

383 Toonses, a big ol' street tabby who adopted me was a talkative, super-friendly cat who would run after me down the street to the house when I would park up the street at night. Sometimes I'd hear a banging at the front door and it was him (you'd look out the window and see just a tail). Absolutely LOVED interacting with people. HATED being held. Dorkie Dork, my formerly feral little Maine Coon runt, LOVED being held. Even in her final hours, when her kidneys had shut down, suffering from hyperthyroidism, pancreatitis, arthritis, and with a large cyst on her liver, all she wanted was for her mama to hold her until she died.

Why NitroMethane? Because like blackpowder, it has more than one application.

Besides, the half dozen engines you have up on top of your bookcase are cool décor, in their own right. Even if you do only run one of them every decade or so.

Yes, that's the contrast. Yesterday, as far as I know, nothing was burned, nothing was looted, and I've heard only one report of weapons being used by the trespassers ("metal poles.") Yet they are now the Official Worst People Ever.

If I was at the rally, I personally would not have trespassed, but as "insurrections" go, this was a nothingburger. But even Trump has denounced the trespassers now. I do not believe that every one of them deserves the level of condemnation they face.

446 I just saw the Stop The Steal speech that PDJT made. This was the first time that I watched this, and I wanted to see, with benefit of hindsight, if there was anything that Trump said that could possibly incite violence.

There was absolutely nothing inflammatory about what he said. Yes, it was basically the same campaign speech that he made dozens of times on the pre-election trail. Yes, he called out Kemp and called for Pence to 'do the right thing.' What he didn't say was that he ordered Pence to do anything - he left that choice up to him.

Yes, he said that they would walk to the Capitol after the speech, but he said nothing about storming the building, or threatening anyone.

Media reports, as expected, were hyperbolic, overblown, and slanderous.

I'm only looking at primary sources to make any informed opinions. If the media were to assert that the sky was blue, I'm not taking their word for it. Ever.

Nah, what it really is is that the trolls are congenital losers. They'd be losers under any conceivable form of government. Somehow, though, they've managed to convince themselves that their loserhood is caused by external factors (in this case, "Trump") rather than them being worthless excuses for human beings.

Not one of them has ever amounted to anything IRL, nor will they ever. No spouses/girlfriends, no kids, no meaningful employment, no skills or talent...nothing at all. When they die, no one will even remember that they lived.

Their blind hatred makes them feel that they ARE TOO SOMEBODY. But deep down they know it's not true.

I feel rather sad for them, really.

The whole trust the plan nonsense hasn't just been harmless fantasy, it's incredibly counterproductive. Just like the cocaine Mitch memes, they kept voters mollified when we needed to be pressing Trump and every other representative.

That being said, I'm always open to ideas, and I've been subscribing to some sort of QAnon thing on MeWe because that's what came up when I was looking for Trump-related things. Some is pure nonsense, that I ignore. But it tends to have a lot of real news items about the Trump situation that I'm not seeing elsewhere.

Sometimes things are brought up that I can't ignore, such as yeah, WTF is Congress even TALKING about the 25th Amendment, when as far as the gaslighters are concerned, it's "Game Over", and Biden is in on the 20th? When people act strangely, something is UP. THEY, at least, think that Trump can very much still do something about it.

Trump has acted strangely also, with this latest "hostage video". It doesn't sound like him, but THEY are incapable of ever really listening to him, so THEY don't notice that. It actually makes sense that it's a message TO THEM. A deceptive one that they will gladly believe.

True, but give him credit on his number 1 job: illegal immigration. Because we were so successful on many fronts in shutting it off, people forget that it was the single issue that got the President the GOP nomination and on which he did a hell of a lot of good for the country. That was what Sessions was hired as AG to do, and he did it. Now, he should have shut off the witch hunt and cleaned out the DOJ, which were both colossal failures, but he did get the job done in the courts that needed to be done.

519 Trump has acted strangely also, with this latest "hostage video". It doesn't sound like him, but THEY are incapable of ever really listening to him, so THEY don't notice that. It actually makes sense that it's a message TO THEM. A deceptive one that they will gladly believe.

Besides this, there are a few other unexplained loose ends:
(1) 2018 Executive order (2) 01JAN Executive order, if I have the date right - the name spells the acronym "STORM" (3) Major changes in the military leadership and structure - SINCE 04NOV. New SecDef, Special Ops moved under direct control of SecDef (4) SecDef makes mention of largest and most complex military operation in US history going on. (5) Trump saying 04JAN will be "wild", promising much will be "revealed" in the two weeks afterwards.

Did I leave anything out? Why do ANY of this, if something wasn't going on behind the scenes? I also suspect that Nashville belongs on that list.

531 Speaking of corona, I think I had it briefly last year. Let's assume so. I've never really had a great sense of smell or taste. I *can* taste and I have taste preferences, but things max out a lot lower than gourmet. Anyway, for the past few weeks, but especially recently, I've had very little desire to eat. It's not that I'm not hungry, but whenever I think about something to eat, it just doesn't appeal to me, even the stuff I used to love. I do need to drop a few pounds, but I used to sit at the computer with a bag of no-shell pistachios (low salt) or a plate of nachos or a bag of popcorn (plain, low salt). Now, even pizza, something I love, doesn't appeal to me. Even stoned, no desire to eat.

Posted by: Braenyard at January 08, 2021 12:06 AM (CZm2G)

539 @501 President Elect Optimizer-I've been thinking along the lines that between, for example, what Trump, Levin, Cruz and others, said condemning the Trump supporters storming of the capital building, that it wasn't a calculated move because they know whats coming down on all of us as soon as Biden is in.

I find it odd that the ONLY ONE that didn't condemn the Trump supporters was Limbaugh. Is it because he can be honest about it because he knows he's not long for this world and got nothing to lose?

Seems like an awfully big sellout by many, at least I know why Trump would say what he said, he might be doing this to save his family and life trying to buy some time. Just thinking maybe someone on the inside knows exactly what the Dems are going to do and let people know to tone it down and/or GTFO of dodge because they are coming after all of you.

I mean, one Dem was advocating removing all Repubs from the senate or congress(cant remember). Maybe that was a bit of a give away of what's coming?

Posted by: JROD at January 08, 2021 12:07 AM (0jZnq)

540 Caesar - Trump was in fact nominated and elected only because of mass illegal migration, without that issue he would not have made the first, and likely not the 2nd hurdle.

But - through little "fault" of his own - I don't think he managed to do nearly as much as he'd hoped. And almost everything he accomplished is easily reversible (and will be reversed).

The border barrier sections are probably the only thing that will endure - and being partial, and of course as all barriers require an active patrol/surveillance component, even that accomplishment can be diluted.

The consent decree creating the insane catch/release thing with minors? Intact. ICE capacity for detention, another key catch/release factor? Actually *declining* (thanks, GOP!!). Bilaterals with Central Americans on asylum? There's no bilateral agreement ever made that can't be hollowed out with explicit/tacit inaction. Asylum petitioners waiting in Mexico? Believe this was already specifically targeted for reversal.

And the list goes on.

ICE internal enforcement has been a fraction of that needed, and has not touched non-criminal illegals, in general.

He really had me fooled, and I listen to what he says very closely. Having just been supposedly betrayed by Pence and almost every Federal-level official, it made me wonder if they had finally gotten to him too, or if he was so tied to the Constitution that he would martyr himself - and the country - to avoid shutting it down, even temporarily.

It was disturbing that he threw us under the bus, but perhaps that's exactly what his target audience needed to hear. He has never been shy about saying exactly what's on his mind, but was spotting abject nonsense. But in their gaslit world, that abject nonsense fits in perfectly.

The Democrats will have their own Flake/Romney/McCain/Sasse/Collins/Murkowski problem. And in the House a handful of representatives can derail anything Pelosi wants to do.

He didn't "incite" in any way. He instantly called out to stop the idiocy when it happened.

He exhausted his conventional options, and, as he had said and surrogates had said several times, at that point he conceded.

If anyone at work is talking about it they're doing it out of my hearing. I wonder if people are literally afraid to talk about it in person or if they are just overwhelmed and want to tune it out.

What I AM hearing about big time -- because I work for an IL state agency that is dealing with this issue -- is that the Dept. of Public Health has extended its rules requring people to wear masks in public places. Lots of e-mails from pissed off citizens, many of them talking about closed businesses, their kids missing school, etc. The sad thing is that even though they are pouring out their complaints to us there really isn't a whole lot we (our office) can do to change or stop this policy. I suppose if we give them a place to vent that's something.

I do not foresee the equity markets continuing to be robust over the next four years. That will put pressure on pension funds, insurance companies, and others that have benefitted from the Trump boom. I do not believe the Senate will go along with a bailout of Illinois and California. California, in particular, is very dependent upon Silicon Valley capital gains for state income tax.

579 Let's see how that insane ruling on EOs actually is applied. I don't think any Trump EO that is dumped survives. And to the extent (less than people seem to assume) that "Trump" judges dominate at different levels, it only makes the already very unlikely nation-wide injunction usurpation *less* likely/feasible. There won't be judges brazenly disregarding statute and judicial process to block Joe's staff, er, Joe's orders. Not a chance.

And there will be close to zero internal friction from what was called "the permanent government" as long ago as Nixon, now known as the "Deep State", to damaging policies and orders. I don't think you'll have CINCs and special ambassadors lying to the CIC about troop deployments, or DHS not jumping to every (disastrous) policy memo, and you certainly won't have the DOJ/FBI actively seeking to destroy the administration.

By this point I didn't even hope for any blowback, having seen the greatest national turnover in our modern history (2010) result in ZERO changes in CA.

I was/remain stunned that there wasn't a revolt in much, or any, of the country. Then again, it's now sovietology trying to assess American elections - do we even really know what the actual vote was?

Ignorant sheep - which is what most Americans, and a huge super-majority of Californians, are now - don't revolt.

612 Caesar: you mean the downward spiral (in many key respects) isn't ongoing, for years now? I assume you mean something much more accelerated or dramatic.

Since I saw Trump winning 33-35 states - easily - I am forced to revert to Yogi Berra's policy on predictions. (then again, maybe I was right? Isn't it fun living in Zimbabwe?)

But actually on finance, years ago I threw in the towel. ZIRP, the Fed's balance sheet tripling in a few years, deficits the size of all budgets from whole continents, on and on. And the machine churns on. None of this makes sense in my (obviously now incorrect) framework.

But "international crisis" is not my candidate, partly because there just isn't any that would matter all that much right now, except to those directly involved. Even a China-India scrap (not all that unlikely) - meh. A good thing. But don't see global impact from sort of crisis that used to drive everything else, not now.

A lot of people believe that the Reconstruction Amendments were effectively the creation of a new Constitution (for example, the Bill of Rights used to not apply to the states, only to the Feds), and that the New Deal was another Constitutional shift (the explosion of the size of government and the scope of its ability to regulate the economy).

Carter years are not a bad analogy, but there was a lot of actual changing economic reality involved then, and that administration wasn't anything like this one will be. Carter deregulated natural gas and airlines, two excellent moves (the first one cost him big with Dem states). This crew of idiots is unlikely to do anything sensible, and much that is stupid.

Regulation and trends towards oligopoly (unopposed) will cap growth and dynamism, worsen income distribution, and impose enormous opportunity costs (but keep your money in oligopoly stocks, they'll do fine). The idiotic science-free C19 tyranny has nothing but horrid economic effects, and social. There's a downward spiral right there.

Posted by: JROD at January 08, 2021 12:07 AM (0jZnq)

One of my observations is that people, especially at the top, seem awfully scared. The idea behind tossing dissenters out of the Senate was on the grounds of sedition.

That's basically the domestic version of treason, which is punishable by death. As far as I know, nobody in power is calling this crazy.

This is somewhat muted so far, but as they get a little bit bolder, the executions of dissenters from The Party will begin. That's how Communism works, and call it by any other term you want, but that's what it is.

As far as the President's personal safety, as soon as he leaves office he's a marked man. Within two years, he's dead, no question. If he doesn't get real and do some shit within the next 10 days, he's as much a goner as the country - and the world, BTW.

638 In the context of Let It Burn, there has to be a cascading failure that
causes systems to break. We all turned out to be more resilient to the
Chinese Flu than the doomsayers thought. If we're going to LIB, it has
to be something bigger than that. Otherwise, it's Jimmy Carter for the
next 4 years.

Without "Only corporations and foreign countries deserve handouts" Mitch running the senate, UBI, blue shithole bailouts, and some version of student loan 'forgiveness' are going to sail through, not even as base payoffs, but part of the general "train everyone to be irresponsible" kick that the Dems are on. At some point everything that has always been true about inflation will be again.

The more interesting scenario for me though is Three Gorges Dam finally goes with resulting disruptions.

Part of the low/no-growth scenario I expect is substantially due to idiocy on energy and "climate". I don't think there's any doubt about that happening. They might not get legislative damage accomplished, but much can be inflicted without Congress - and will be.

One reason Trump was unable to win PA, even after winning it last time, and being materially responsible for it having its best economy since the 1950s - the prospect of his opponent squelching that boom.

One thing we all learned early in the lockdown mania in 2020 was how vulnerable some supply chains are to disruption and to China. I wonder if there has been more resiliency added since then.

There is a reasonable case to be made that the precipitating event of the 2008 financial crisis was Hurricane Ike, which took Houston out of the economy for 2 weeks. Obviously the underlying causes had been brewing for a long time, but the sudden loss of a significant chunk of economic activity created knock-on effects that the system was too brittle to absorb. Would 3 Gorges do the same thing?

When I was at the Butler rally I mentioned to at least a couple of locals, "You guys understand that abolishing the oil and gas industry is a completely crazy thing to do, right?" As in, it'd be like Saudi Arabia shutting down it's oil fields to "Save the World".

I expected an enthusiastic affirmative response, but got more like an awkward pause. These were professional people, probably brainwashed into the Church of Global Warming.

I suppose that industry is pretty automated now - not all that many people working directly in it.
Most of the coal is on the other side of the state.

It started after I'd been taking it for a few years. I just assume that continuing to take it caused more damage to thirst.

Besides, the country surely seems to have an appetite for trillion $ printed money bail-outs these days. They've been handed out like candy, no complaints I've seen.

The Tea Party was born, mostly, from an $800B bailout of financial institutions - biggest grass-roots voter rebellion modern history. Gray Davis was recalled over a rise in vehicle registration fees, licenses for illegals, and a sweetheart deal with the prison guards' union.

My daughter registered as an independent, and eventually realized that she was actually signed up for an actual party called the Independent Party, which we knew nothing about. She decided she didn't want that, and wanted go unaffiliated instead (which I don't think was an option when she signed up).

Before we got around to doing that, she got a card in the mail that seemed kind of disturbing at first glance, it being shortly after the election, everything so tense. It said something about not being able to vote.

Reading it more carefully, what it was saying was that in the election we just had, the Independent Party didn't get enough votes to qualify to have a party line going forward. Basically, it was dead in our county. So she wouldn't be able to vote IN A PRIMARY. She'd been rendered unaffiliated - which is what she wanted in the first place - without doing anything!

693 Howdy, Horde! I have just awakened after a Twenty-Hour Sleep Marathon, with a few scarce hours of being "up-and-about" in-between.

Perhaps all the excitement from yesterday, as well as watching after a bickering Mom & Dad had set me a bit cattywompus and I needed the rest. *shrugs*

I'd just like to thank Jim in Galveston for his phone call yesterday, updating me on the status of the Horde Members in Washington, D.C.

It put my mind at ease and it gifted me a well-needed break from moderating a YouTube Live Chat that had garnered 27,000+ viewers, as My Boy, Stephen Ignoramus, got inside the Capitol Building.

(I'm responsible for reading and keeping track of them and since I couldn't finish the task at work, I forwarded a bunch of them to my home email.) The saddest one I have come across so far is from a woman whose son committed suicide in October... he was a freshman at U if I and had been a really active and popular student at his high school. His mom said that going away to college was incredibly isolating to him because of the lockdown... he had no roommate, couldn't attend class or socialize in person, etc. She said he "lost his light" because of the lockdown. Not sure what else to say about that...

699 I thoroughly enjoy watching the womanly cries of the Blatant Troll, who craves to be a Real Man, someday.

"Someday!", he cries, as he shakes his fist at Reality and all that don't see this individual for the Secret King" he so longs to be.

"Someday!", he sputters through thin lips, so unkind, they cannot carry a moustache.

"Someday!", he pounds into a table, stronger than his mettle, resolve or faith.

...someday, he will ask Jesus Christ for salvation and a solid foundation, from which to build a life within the Good News. And Jesus will simply whisper, "Yes."

In 2015 when the Donald began to swat aside his opponents, my first thought was he was going to destroy the Republican party. To me it was theater with lots of popcorn consumed. In the 9 previous elections I had never voted for a major party canidate. It seemed difficult to consider him a Republican. I was wrong about him destroying the party. He was merely the fulcrum. The GOP themselves, with their arrogance, corruption, falsehoods and cowardice, acted as the lever which has tipped them into the abyss of history. What's ironic to me, with the current stewards of history, they will barely register a paragraph.

It is a good time to have Righteous Indignation and remember that this is not over. The Swamp is still at a Full-Court-Press in the media.

This is not "The Worst Timeline". In fact, it has brought out Truth that can be shared Far-and-Wide about those who supposedly "represented" us.

The Ultimate Timeline is January 20th. Even if things don't go my way, I can now begin to plan accordingly. I also know that the people at AoS, and in every city in America, have plans for Patriots of our Stripe.

They are power mad. The "assault" on DC was simply not. Now the assault of Seattle last summer was exactly that. And the hundreds of businesses, mostly smaller ones, are mostly still boarded up.
It wasn't anyone here who was out destroying stuff, or anyone we would agree with.

796 Not that it matters a whole hell of a lot, but I'm writing to say that I'm slinking off into irregular lurk mode.

I watched my Republic die this week. I do not say that lightly or to be overly melodramatic. I now have a better understanding of the emotion of the Frenchman in the historical picture, crying as he watches the Wehrmacht march down the Champs de Elysee in 1940. I am shedding a tear this week, too, a tear of profound sadness. My Republic died this week.

My vote no longer counts as I saw a feckless Republican wing of the Uniparty give their blessing to vote fraud, apparently the only vote that matters. It is a harsh lesson they have taught me, one that I would have paid tens of thousands of dollars to an America-hating institution of higher propaganda to learn. And all it cost me was my Country as I saw my Republic die this week.

797 I can say with certainty that whatever comes after the United States of the Democrat Oligarchy, it will not be the Republic under which I grew up and lived. It will be different. It might better but it will probably be less. I say that because we will not have the Jeffersons, the Masons, the Franklins, the Hancocks and, most importantly, the Washingtons around to rebuild it. Our Country was designed for a moral people and I do not think theft of an election qualifies us as a moral people any longer, as if legalized abortion didn't prove that decades ago. George III, enemy of Washington and the Colonial Rebels, famously said that Washington was the greatest man who ever lived because, in 1797, he willingly and fearlessly gave up all the political power for which he had so dearly fought. For George III, that was simply inconceivable. No, we will not have the likes of our Founding Fathers around to rebuild this Country again. My Republic died this week.

2/4

Posted by: RickZ at January 08, 2021 04:36 AM (ldL4g)

798 With institutional vote fraud, there will never be another free or fair election again. In the past, when voting in a presidential election, I mostly voted against a candidate, never truly for one. But with Donald John Trump, I actually voted FOR a president, twice, and that was such a novel and good feeling. I also saw what the Uniparty, ably aided and abetted by the propaganda media, did to our modern Cincinnatus. They vilified him from the moment of his descent down the escalator in a building which his company built. The Uniparty-Media Complex could not stand us Deplorables having a say in who governed us as Trump was not of them and which is exactly why he received my vote. I saw them destroy this Republic to destroy him, to take away his victory in the 2020 election with in-our-faces vote fraud, laughing at Trump's and our impotence to stop it. My Republic died this week.

That war holds another really bad memory. Wife's best friend got married over 40, first marriage. Nice gal, even attractive. Got married to an Air Force captain. Guy was outstanding guy and also very down to earth. For a few years, we did a lot of stuff together as couples and as groups.
He flew an air tanker. Was with the WA Air NG. He also trained pilots, and I met quite a few that respected the hell out of him. Said the guy was an amazing pilot and teacher. He went to Bosnia, and flew the old ones, based on the 707 frame. One night in Bosnia he was landing after fueling another plane, something happened (heard "unofficially" the real story from two pilots telling it to his wife - off the record or they said they would have to deny it) and the touch and go caused the plane to come apart. I was working a hitech sales job, on the phone, when the wife came in, bawling, and just said "Dave is gone, he's dead!"
I recall there were 4 bodies returned, and the Spokane opera stage was filled up to capacity. Governor spoke, and others.

On that same serious note, knowing History as I do, I have a profound and deep sadness at the events which transpired this week.

Do you believe the raw numbers of deaths per week, all causes, published by CDC? I too question whether COVID is being misattributed to deaths from other causes, but I don't believe actual death certificates are being forged for people who are still alive or don't exist.

His dad was giving back simple half-liners or couple of word phrases, and is a big DJT guy like me. It just got the kid hotter and angrier, and the texting got out of hand. My bro was essentially trying to call him out in a funny way for getting out of hand.
So today, kid sent a text to his Dad, tells him to go to hell, he's out of kids life for at least a year, "until your fucking brain comes back to earth", or some such thing.
My bro called him three times, got hung up on each time. Third time, his phone was blocked.

Okay, so it's a bad flu. Is that still enough to place under house arrest those who are not sick, to destroy people's livelihoods and businesses in the name of 'public safety'?

I'd be more apt to believe the numbers put out if I saw bureaucrats losing their jobs, too. But I do not see that. So as far as I'm concerned, the 'rona is real but not as deadly as they imply and the reaction is the hoax.

837 The one thing the Left avoids at all costs is a fair fight. Whether in the streets or in politics, they are scared shit of a fair fight. They have to steal elections, lie and have the cops stand back while they riot and kill. They will not make a move unless they know the rules won't apply to them, and that the other side actually cares about rules. I lived through the 60's but I've never seen anything like what this country is going through now. I have no idea where this goes after Trump leaves, but it's dawning on me that I've lived my last days in the country I grew up in, or at least what was left of it.

What was really sad, is just about a decade ago in college 6 hours away from home, dad had a gut feeling, knew kid wasn't doing well, and wanted to just talk. Kid was committing suicide, had eaten pills and drinking, and just happened to answer his phone. This was like 1am on a weeknight. Dad hit the road in about a minute, went 90+mph, called the few numbers he had, no luck, called the local cops, and they treated him. Was close.
And now, he's looney tunes about Trump and the DC stuff and it's apparently his Dad's problem.

It killed my bro to tell me that story earlier today.

Do you believe the raw numbers of deaths per week, all causes, published by CDC? I too question whether COVID is being misattributed to deaths from other causes, but I don't believe actual death certificates are being forged for people who are still alive or don't exist. In December the deaths per week were ~20-25% higher than compared to recent years.
Posted by: Serious Cat at January 08, 2021 05:11 AM (GtG/j)

Yes, but many, many deaths are falsely attributed to Covid.
I mean, I have read stories that seemed real, where gunshot victims and automobile deaths were marked as Covid deaths.
And the seasonal flu is 20k to 80k every year. Pneumonia higher than that. Those Covid numbers include these deaths in the count. Or are these two killers down 98%, like the CDC stats say they do? Of course not.
And also remember, hospitals get a special extra chunk of money for every Covid patient they treat from fedgov. Even more if the Covid patient goes on a ventilator.

So I believe the total CDC death count, but not the Covid specific number, even a little bit.

Still up? I'm deployed in the Balkans...we're 6 hours ahead of EST, so I'm up again! I tell you, there's a lot of disturbing parallels between the death of Yugoslavia and the issues the US is facing. Actually, I think Yugoslavia was in a better position, in some ways. The problem really revolved around Serbia trying to take control of the Federal government, and the other Republics (primarily Slovenia and Croatia) resisting. In the US' case, the Federal government is just consolidating power with the passive consent of the states, and the states don't have the same independence or historical autonomy to break away like the Yugoslavian Republics did.

868 A new social contract is required. It needs to be written like a club's charter. You're a citizen, you pay your dues. No payment, out of the club/country. Where you go is up to you, but you can't stay.

Core principles and beliefs of club: liberty, self defense, private property, etc. Don't agree, voted out, see above. I hate to say it, but true freedom as originally intended is untenable. A few ambitious leaders will promise large groups of the poor a better life by taking from those with more. You'll get enough votes to get elected over time, and the consequences will come far down the road.

Did you see that they're building a temporary wall around the Capitol? Bets that this won;t be temporary?

@MarkSleboda1

906 As I mentioned... Righteous Indignation through Him is one heckuva motivating factor. For those who cannot see the Better Side of Truth, just know that having more Truth on your side, today, is better than the looming uncertainty that teetered on its delicate precipice a day earlier.

It is a movement to get back to the Good, the Beautiful and the True, which should be in the hearts of every man worth his salt.

For those who have not sold their cloaks and purchased a sword, I suggest doing so. Through God you cannot lose. (It really is a Good Book!)

You were never guaranteed no enormous trials on this plane. To the contrary, we are but temporary vessels being tempted by the prince of this plane.

If defeating evil liars is not a calling, then perhaps we just need a bigger sign, with more liars and greater sedition. (I denounce my sarcasm.)

I have doubts that actual Trumpists would start a fight with the cops, definitely Antifa infiltrators or "Boogaloo" types (who are also anarchists). There are the ones who dropped down to the house or senate floor and trespassed into Pelosi's office, who I could believe are genuine Trump Supporters. But such acts are not a violent "insurrection". I fear the FBI/DOJ are going to try and trump up bogus charges of terrorists "conspiracy" and what not to get those jokers put away for life.

I don't wish that kind of destruction and violence on anyone. I am convinced this election was fraudulently conducted and the people who are set to be installed intend to exercise unchecked government power.

978 >>The Capitol Police certainly has enough funding to be prepared. The force has 2,300 officers and a $516 million budget to defend two square miles.


I woud imagine they have some decent security to protect it from a terror attack? Not that there's no budget shenanigans, because it's DC. However, they likely didn't expect a push because every other patriot, tea party, march for life event for years has been peaceful, friendly, and the location left cleaner.

Seems they are now realizing they have underestimated the anger, and obviously expected us to remain pleasant and peaceful forever.

Notice how the do not use the word "stroke" and instead imply that he was beaten near to death by protesters. Fuck them and their gaslighting.

Look this is not political. This Officer was hit in the head with a hard object ( rumnor has it a fire extinguisher). No need to denigrate the Officer. In an blow to the head, a "Stroke" is not an unusual result

986 I don't think the Left and GOPe (BIRM) are operating out of fear. I think it is hate.

They hate Trump and they hate us. Trump revealed that it has all been kabuki, that things don't get solved because of lack of will and competence.

In 1998 the Congress passed a law that the US recognized Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Three Presidents from both parties swore that they supported that law and would move our embassy there, and didn't.

Trump did it despite the whole world having a collective shit fit about it. And then all the predicted world ending didn't.

990 Good morning, Venezuela Norte.

Hope everyone is OK this morning. Rough last couple of days for all of us (except the trolls of course, but fuck them). Still applying the 48-hour rule on The Concession Video(tm). Seeing plenty of people spin that it's a deep-fake but after 4-years of Q, 40million sealed indictments, Huber, OIG, #twoweeks etc. etc. etc. I'm pretty much done with all that. The easiest explanation is probably correct.

Did the commies steal the election? Of course. How? By doing what they've done since Chi-town in 1960 showed them the way - stuffing the ballot boxes and "harvesting" "votes" from people who either didn't vote or couldn't because they're dead and buried.

Did Trump concede the election yesterday? Yes. Why? Because he is utterly and completely out of options.

Simple as that. Didn't say it was pleasant. Call me black-pilled, don't care - I don't feel an ounce of despair this morning. What I feel is motivation to get physically, spiritually, and mentally prepared for the fuckery that is coming our way. And it is coming.

Be well, and be safe out there today.

Same here - I then take the opportunity to remind them we were treated to 4-years of incandescent rage over the utterly evidence-free assertion that the 2016 election was "hacked" so any who call me a sore loser can fuck right the hell off.

I lived in the D.C. area for many years and never saw a Capitol cop who wasn't fat. That is why I was speculating about him being sedentary. But obviously if he was hit in the head with something, that is a different matter.

There is no point engaging in a national conversation on a "forum" that is in actual fact a propaganda organ.

Gotta give James Woods kudos for speaking up. Tho I find him a little slow, I never did Twitter and knew it was a sewer from the start. But a lot were fooled and enticed.

Is Parler the great alternative?

Well good luck stopping death through the electoral process Stern Feline. All we have to sacrifice to "stop death" I suppose is all economic liberty, an actual functioning vote counting system, and the Bill of Rights.

Bet ya death takes a holiday when Joe and the Ho get in.
