The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"Progressives think that America is the worst nation in the world, full of violence, racism, sexism, homophobia and Islamophobia and ruled by Literally Hitler in an orange fright wig. So why don't they post warning signs on the border of this evil country and try to keep people out instead of inviting them all in?"

(h/t Hadrian the Seventh)

So how big is Irma?


This was a comment posted in the Rant thread yesterday, and it's one of the best stories I've heard in awhile. So, for those of you who missed it:

181

Back in the Sixties the thing to do was go out to California and join a hippie Commune. My Judo instructor's cousin did that. One day he gets a call at his Dojo in Houston from the leader of the Hippie commune who says "You have got to come out here and pick up your cousin - she is too crazy for us." My Sensei replied "Yeah, my cousin was always a few cards short of a full deck - OK I'll come pick her up." So he drives out to LA, spends a few days at the commune playing guitar with the hippies then drives his cousin back to Enid OK - drops her off - then drives back to Houston.

You're probably thinking "You senile old fart, why did you tell us that pointless story?"

Oh no, you don't understand: The hippie commune leader was Charles Manson, and the cousin was too crazy to be a member of the Manson family. This was about six weeks before the Tate - LaBianca murders. So up in Enid Oklahoma there is a little old lady who makes the members of the Manson Family look sane.

I'm glad the DOJ filed an amicus brief on behalf of the Christian bakery owners who were caught not applauding loudly enough, as ace reported yesterday. Not only it is a blow for freedom, but I finally have a reason to post this pic I've been waiting to use:

Heroes You Never Hear About:


Wikipedia gives us the rest of the story:

Along with a group of new arrivals, Mann was taken into a room next to a gas chamber and ordered to disrobe for "delousing". While taking off her clothes in a calculated manner in order to distract the guard, she managed to grab the roll-call officer's pistol, and reportedly shot him fatally in the stomach. She fired a second shot that wounded an SS sergeant. It was a signal for other prisoners to stage a riot which was broken up when other guards opened fire at the group using machine guns. Mann died on the spot.

May God rest her soul.

That's how you deal with it. You're going to die anyway. Take as many with you as you can. Eventually it becomes prohibitively expensive and difficult to kill you, and they have to change tactics.

12 Democrats love what America can be .... I think Obama said. Michelle was never proud of this country till we elected the lying commie anti-American husband.

So they love what America can be, once they make it communist, assuming they do communism right. (meaning they will be the rulers, the rest their submissive servants)

But that all falls under the globalist agenda, but sorting out who runs the world comes after they destroy the West. They've got half of Europe by the balls ... but the Eastern bloc and the US deplorables are flinging sheet at them.

Over the years one of our favorite places there has been Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada. It's about four feet or so above sea level, and the predicted storm surge (10-12 feet I'm told) will mean total submersion of Islamorada (and most other keys I'd imagine). Pretty wild stuff; hope everyone has gone north.

Tools, toiletries, armaments. Plenty of food, water and whisky.

If I have to make the drive, I'm assuming I'll have to sleep at least one night in the truck, as there likely won't be a vacant hotel room anywhere between Houston and Orlando.

Got both the portable generator and Husqvarna 460 Rancher, 20 in. chainsaw in the shop right now, getting tuned n' tweaked to both be 100%, if needed.

I was in Florida during hurricane Andrew (at school, hunkered in the dorm - a story in itself). In a previous thread, someone mentioned that traffic clogs appeared to be at the toll plazas. Hopefully that's just because you have to slow down regardless of whether or not they're collecting tolls. Just before Andrew hit, they actually were collecting tolls. Someone called in to the local weather guy (he got somewhat famous for his role during Andrew, had a TV movie and everything), and told him about it. He kinda freaked out, and basically told the powers-that-be to stop collecting the tolls (which they did). So they should have learned their lesson.

As do we all. If the models are correct, it looks like South Florida will be taking one for the team, with the storm losing power fairly rapidly as it travels up over the landmass. This is not as bad as it could be, since if it stalled out over the Caribbean it could have gathered up steam again to a Cat 5 plus before making its way up.

Latest track is for Irma to make landfall over the Keys and move up through the middle of the state more toward the Gulf side but inland. The are talking about a 5-10 foot storm surge all over southern Florida.

Posted by: Teresa in Fort Worth, Texas

I know your heart must be broken. I am so sad and sorry for you. You are in my prayers, and so is your family.

My sister's first husband killed himself many years ago, and it just seems that hurt never goes away.
Who can know the heartbreak, sadness and depression that leads someone to this? My late brother in law suffered from seasonal depression, and he had a terrible time coping with winter. He had other problems eating at him, and then one day in January, he ended it all.

I pray that God can comfort you. Times likes this, you wonder how a merciful God can allow such things to happen. Where was He in Michelle's hour of need? I wish I had a better answer. Beyond this life, I hope you can be with her again. Love endures so much, and it will endure this.

Life at times does seem so tragic and hopeless. I hope you can gain comfort that her organs can help others live.

Posted by: Bozo Conservative....outlaw in America at September 08, 2017 12:07 PM (vcOmj)

197 Hopefully that's just because you have to slow down regardless of whether or not they're collecting tolls. Just before Andrew hit, they actually were collecting tolls. Someone called in to the local weather guy (he got somewhat famous for his role during Andrew, had a TV movie and everything), and told him about it. He kinda freaked out, and basically told the powers-that-be to stop collecting the tolls (which they did). So they should have learned their lesson.
Posted by: No One of Consequence at September 08, 2017 11:55 AM (+F0Wk)



Dear heavens, I had not thought of that. The few years we lived in Florida, they were emphatic about collecting tolls, and had increased them to an almost untenable rate. It took a lot of screaming and yelling at state reps to at least halt the rise.

It would not surprise me if they were still collecting tolls at all, and that is just awful.

Prayers up for everyone in harm's way, by the way. I would be torn about leaving, but after the comparison between Andrew and Irma, I think I would sit this one out farther away.

2. They are very religious.

Utter bullshit. Maybe with the upper classes, who aren't going anywhere but certainly not with the illegals. They may have large families, but that does not mean they are family oriented. Often there are kids in the same house from multiple fathers, none who are married to the mother or helping much with the bills or raise the kids. And religious? LOL!. Few attend church and most that do have religious beliefs a mile wide and an inch deep. I am a very occasional church attendee with no formal religious instruction and know far more about religion and Christianity than any of the many illegals I have met.

I texted my friend a bit ago, and she said they are boarding up, and she would try to text more later. I don't know if they are going to leave. I just watched Joe Bastardi's latest update and really, the predictions are all over the place.

297 Hurricane Harvey did so much damage, because it stalled over land, parked just West and South of Houston...which put Houston on the "dirty" NW side of the storm.

So, 50 inches of rain over a three day period. Drowned the town, so to speak.

Conversely, Irma is predicted to maintain a steady, 10+ mph pace up the State, even though holding to Cat 1 force to at least Ocala, and possibly even to the GA line.

But, there won't be nearly the rainfall which inundated Houston and the surrounding areas.

South Florida is going to be a mess, no doubt about it. Central and North Florida are not going to have fun, not at all. But, they've weathered many a Cat 2 or 3 hurricane, and though damaged, quickly recovered.

Still.

320 "What might work is spilling a metric fuckton of crude oil on the ocean under the storm, cutting off the evaporation side of the heat cycle."

there is an argument that all the oil spilled in WWII had an effect on the weather.

321 If 10% of the Jews had fought back like that - the holocaust would have required the Nazi's to spend so many troops to control them that they would have had to abandon the project. Going down fighting is the only way to go.

50 Warsaws. The problem, of course, is that it was structured to say, 'Sure, we are going to rob and deport you, but we're not going to kill you.'

That wasn't revealed until it was too late. I mean, they called them "showers" even as the victims had the ash of previous victims snowing down on them.

322 I just broke out the photoshop and pulled up satellite images of Andrew and Irma. I scaled the images to make cuba an exact match in size, and it looks like Joel's graphic isn't accurate. Yes, Irma is bigger, but not nearly as huge as his graphic makes it look.

323 The thing that surprised me most about this storm is how fast it has been moving.

IIRC large storms in the past moved along between 5 and 10 miles per hour while Irma seems to zip along at 15 mph.

324 Apparently, Steven Colbert gave Trump the Nazi salute last night.

Steven Colbert selling his soul saddens me more than the others.

He taught a Sunday School bible class (don't know that he does anymore). And he did quote from the bible a few times & expressed his belief in God. That was many, many years ago, I guess.

So to see his slide is truly sad to me. I don't know when it happened...I think his current show is what did it.

When I was trying out nics I used Gorilla Guru for awhile. Then, I felt it was too close to Gorilla Pundit. So changed it.
But I think people liked Gorilla Guru better (from responses.)

Insomniac, don't do that.

Omg! You have no idea how many times I've considered telling Insomniac to have a moment like that & get it all out of his system.

Of course, that was before the hurricane.

328 "colbert is just playing to his base. demented circus monkeys. i'm sure all three viewers laughed their bright red asses off".

I would pay big money for someone to go out on stage and knock his teeth down his throat, The only reason asshats like Colbert can get away with this shit is because they're confident in the fact that there would be no reprisals from us. Well, maybe it's time to put a little shock and awe into their little lives. I'm sick of this "nazi"shit. My dad was a combat soldier in WW2, fighting those bastards, wounded twice in action, and I have to put up with being called a nazi? Things need to change. Put a little fear of G-d into them and let's see how funny they are then. Pisses me off to no end. Damn these people to Hell.

329 An author from town (now deceased), Ruth Stout, the Dutchess of no dig gardening, (she mulches) wrote that her husband always knew when she was working in her garden far from the house because the traffic would slow on the road nearby. Her husband did not know that she liked to garden naked.

330 325 Dang! I knew "Gorilla Guru" was too good to be unique (although it was original). That pic's too good not to editorialize with daily, as Oregon Muse does. I think the net has room for spinoffs.
Ah, well, just entertainin' myself over in the SondraKistan sandbox, anyway.
