The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

America may be the best country in the world, but that's kind of like being the valedictorian of summer school. Dennis Miller


Quote II

Genius is more often found in a cracked pot than in a whole one. E.B. White


Quote III

“It took me seventeen years to get three thousand hits in baseball. It took one afternoon on the golf course.” Hank Aaron

*****

Politicians in Illinois are playing with fire. Illinois state house has passed gun confiscation legislation.

It is no longer a conspiracy theory spawned by deplorable bitter clingers, but a creeping reality spawned by shootings law enforcement could have prevented but didn't. The Illinois House has passed legislation requiring 18- to 20-year-olds to give up certain legally purchased and legally owned firearms

*****


Living in alternate reality. But, still a dumb ________.

For a liberal “comedian,” Kathy Griffin knows how to make a fool of herself.

The D-list celebrity, whose biggest claim to fame of late was the public humiliation that resulted from a photo where she could be seen holding the mock head of a decapitated President Trump, must have thought she found a new way back into the limelight with a new picture cozying up to failed Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.


Diversity of food, a good thing. Diversity of art and music, wonderful. Diversity of values? Not a good idea. Gavin McInness and his Dad discuss life in general.

Gavin's dad is a hoot.

Kyle Kashuv: Parkland survivor meets the Trumps.

Parkland school shooting survivor Kyle Kashuv spent Thursday making a whirlwind trip to Washington, D.C., that included a chance to sit down with President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump, as well as meetings with several lawmakers from both sides of the aisle.

Following his meeting with the president and first lady, the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School junior tweeted, “They’re true patriots,” and thanked White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

Pat Condell: censored again. He certainly has a way to piss off You Tube.

*****


Funny thing, if you're a smug leftist you don't have to serve anybody you like, including police.

A coffee shop in Oakland is refusing to serve law enforcement officers for the "physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves," according to the shop's social media.

Hasta Muerte Coffee, an employee-owned co-op, will not serve officers in uniform and turned away an officer a few weeks ago, as reported by NBC Bay Area.

The sergeant who was turned away from the shop a few weeks ago said he was surprised by employees refusing to serve him, but walked out without any incident or any coffee.


Karma anyone?

*****


We all know that California is in trouble. We know that Illinois has issues. Looks Connecticut isn't far behind. The joys of being an oppressive blue state.

Connecticut Democrats’ recent losing streak is the result of widespread dissatisfaction with the state’s fiscal and economic model. Budget deficits recur, despite three major tax hikes since 2009. A high legacy-cost burden makes further tax increases seem almost inevitable. Coming out of the Great Recession, Connecticut’s economy has endured painfully slow rates of growth, a trend highlighted by General Electric recently relocating outside the state. Connecticut’s credit rating from Moody’s is lower than that of any state except New Jersey and Illinois. It’s not inconceivable that Republicans could gain control of the governorship and both houses of the legislature this November.

Give them an inch and they will take a yard. What illegal aliens want now.

Some 200 students from University of California Santa Barbara walked out of class earlier this week to demand increased resources for illegal immigrant students — an act that is becoming cliché among DACA students and their supporters. Among their demands: access to an attorney to defend against potential ICE raids and a center on campus marked as a “safe space,” where undocumented students could convene, as Campus Reform noted.

A citizen's arrest gone wrong? Genius Award Winners? The Horde should decide.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Two men and a woman are accused of chasing down two 14-year-old suspected car thieves, forcing them into the trunk of their car at gunpoint and driving them to the Cleveland Police Fourth District headquarters, according to police.

Kenyatta Ware II, 21, George Barnes, 29, and Shelia Beale, 49, are all charged with felonious assault and kidnapping. All three have been arrested and are awaiting their first court appearance.

A little ingenuity and some bravery is Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

An off-duty New Jersey State Trooper used a tree branch and a T-shirt to save an auto accident victim's life this week.

Trooper Kenneth Minnes was traveling on the Atlantic City Expressway in Gloucester Township around 2:30 p.m. on Monday when he came upon an overturned, small truck that had run off the road and struck several trees, police said.

Here's some wild trivia I just tripped over.

"Alex Rocco". The guy who played Moe Greene in Godfather who gets shot through the eye, was an Italian mobster in Boston associated with the mostly Irish Winter Hill gang before he changed his name and ran away to Hollywood. You see the brother of the head of a rival Irish gang made a pass at Rocco's girlfriend, which escalated into the Irish Gang Wars of the 1960s. Whitey Bulger later took over the Winter Hill gang.

In Hollywood he got acting advice -- "lose the Boston accent" -- from another Boston refugee -- Leonard Nimoy.

52 Dolly Parton shuts down Nightline & refuses to bash Trump. I hate our media, so I loved this.
---------------

David Wright, anchor for ABC’s “Nightline,” tried desperately to get country music star Dolly Parton to wade into politics during a recent interview, but the legendary musician was having none of it.

What happened?

Discussing Parton’s acting role in the film “9 to 5” — which is the same name of a famous Parton song — Wright tried to sink Parton into a discussion about President Donald Trump’s alleged sexism. Wright played a clip from “9 to 5” where star Jane Fonda disparaged her sexist boss.

“The sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot portrayed so effectively in that movie by actor Dabney Coleman hasn’t exactly disappeared from the culture. We have a president of the United States who said the things on that bus,” Wright said, attempting to lure Parton.

“I’m not addressing that,” Parton said.

“I do not get into that. Of course I have my opinion about everybody and everything, but I learned a long time ago, keep your damn mouth shut if you want to stay in show business,” she added. “I’m not in politics. I am an entertainer.”

“And yet you’re also a role model,” Wright replied.

“Yes, I am. That’s why I don’t talk about people,” Parton shot back.

Just prior to her sharp response, Parton warned Wright that she refuses to discuss politics and would not answer any political questions.

“If you decide you may want to ask me something more serious — don’t because I’m not going to answer it,” she said. “You can ask but I might still tell you where to put [your question].”

Geniuses are not known as being completely on an even keel. If not cray cray, at least a bit eccentric.

As to Quote 1, how much of a compliment would it be if someone ay you are the most upstanding person - among those who work at the UN. Since most of the countries of the world are, if not shitholes, at least are run by shitheads, it shouldn't be seen as much of a high bar to be better than all of them.

97 "It's Not Unusual" is a song written by Les Reed and Gordon Mills, first recorded by a then-unknown Tom Jones, after having first been offered to Sandie Shaw. Jones recorded what was intended to be a demo for Shaw, but when she heard it she was so impressed with Jones's delivery that she declined the song and recommended that Jones release it himself.

The story behind the song is pretty cool.

Leftist lack of self awareness is officially insane.
Lefties shoot up Republican legislators and assault random people for the crime of thinking differently than do, but accuse the right of being violent.
Lefties say people with penises and the genetic makeup of men, can be women because of feelz and accuse the right of being anti-science.
Lefties do everything in their power to shut down speech they don't want to hear and accuse the right of being anti-free speech.
Lefties politicize every single aspect of life and accuse the right of being divisive.
Lefties do their best to eliminate traditional male and female relationships and accuse the right of being prudes.
Lefties seek to control every aspect of life and accuse the right of being authoritarian.
The left is clearly insane.

151 That hatch pic reminded me of a story my Dad told about the B-17 he flew in during WWII. Seems they were refueling in Greenland and as junior man on the crew he got to be the lucky dog to disconnect the fuel hose before they took off. And he did, only to discover that a) ice is an electrical insulator so b) the running engines had built up a static charge sufficient to c) knock him on his ass (helped by the ice) every time he tried to grab on to the hatch to get back in the plane. The rest of the crew finally figured out what was happening and hauled him in by the scruff of his neck

158 Connecticut's credit rating from Moody's is lower than that of any state except New Jersey and Illinois. It's not inconceivable that Republicans could gain control of the governorship and both houses of the legislature this November.

++++

Just to be clear, though. They'd be Connecticut Republicans.

Posted by: Anon Y. Mous at March 11, 2018 10:05 PM (pvjTE)




Fun Fact. Moody's Bond Rating Service is but one facet of the Moody Empire, here in Galveston, TX.

The Moody's got their start here, post Civil War, in the cotton business. And to this day, Moody Compress still handles a huge percentage of the U.S. cotton crop.

Then they got into banking (Moody National Bank), and insurance (American National Insurance Company) ranks in the 50 largest insurance companies in the U.S.

And the oilfield technology you know as "Fracking"? Patent held by George Mitchell Moody, who just passed away 'bout three years ago, here. Go into any field office trailer on a fracking job-site, and there on the shelves will be three-ring binders, titled "Moody Manuals."

Big time land developers, too. Do some research on The Woodlands, just North of Houston.

Long and short of it?

The Moody Charitable Trust sits just a bit below the Bill & Melissa Gates foundation in size.

Old money. Huge money. Quiet money.

Prior to the Great Storm of 1900, which killed +/- 10,000 people on this island, Galveston was the hands-down financial center of the South.

The Wall Street of the South, they used to call it.

The 1900 storm caused the Powers that Be in Texas, to develop a nearly forgotten backwater swamp town called Houston, into an inland, deepwater port. Safer from storms, you see.

And now, every time you hear the financials on the radio, or the Talking Heads on the Sunday shows mention Moody and their Bond Rating Service... you'll remember reading this, and in an instant, be afflicted with Glen Campbell's "Galveston" as your new earworm for the day.

No need to thank me, of course. It's all a part of the service.

163 I missed out on the book thread and the gun thread where this could fit.

In a recent gun magazine I came across reference to a set of books I'd not heard of, "The Machine Gun" by George M. Chinn, Colonel USMC (retired). A large 5 volume set.

I managed to get a copy of the first book online for $40 plus shipping. It needed to have the cover reattached which is why I could afford it. I fixed that problem.

Anyway I found the entire set is available as pdf downloads here.

Volume 5 has the 30 mm GAU-8/A since the A-10 was mentioned on the gun thread.

179 I was reading some of the comments from the link about Illinois guns.

This guy has it right:

Any law abiding citizen who willingly relinquishes his/her firearms to the government doesn’t deserve to own one in the first place. Eventually they’ll try to take them from the wrong people and that is why we have the second amendment in the first place. “The beauty of the second amendment is that it won’t be needed until they they try to take it”.....Thomas Jefferson.

181 I'm not a huge country music fan, so Dolly Parton's not generally my thing. But I do like Jolene. As a kid, 9 to 5 was one of my favorite movies; watched it endlessly on cable.

I was also frankly amazed by her rack as a kid. Not that I could explain why or anything. But I understood on a purely intuitive level that Dolly was a natural wonder. Like Niagra Falls.

Tom Jones is one of those guys that I just don't get. My mom loved him, so I heard him a lot growing up. He seems like a parody of music. What's New Pussycat? Whoa-oh-whoa!! Uh-huh.

(Not that any of my opinionating on music should be taken seriously by anyone.)

While I was up in the attic putting the last studs in place, I saw a pickup cruise by slowly, and the guy in the passenger seat was staring intently at the TR6 in the open garage. They went around the block, it appears, and pulled into the driveway. Guy asks if he can look at the TR6. I said "Sure, but bear with me for a couple of minutes. I am nearly done up here, and don't want to make another trip." (it's a long crawl through the attic)

So I get down, find the keys for the Triumph, and start it up. He seems amazed that it starts as easily as it does. Anyway, I said it's for sale, and named a price, and said I would entertain offers. He said he'd get back to me. The guy apparently has plenty of experience working on Triumphs.

WE DO NOT.We(all of us here) live in the most exceptional country on the planet, populated by an extraordinary people, something I've repeatedly pointed out.

We are because of the 3 precepts of our founding:

The Declaration of Independence--the WHY.

The Bill of Rights--that which is inalienable for all, conferred by God.

The Constitution--the blueprint.

Faithful adherence to those precepts has allowed us to flourish and become the nation we are.

Suckage has got nothing to do with it.

It was FOX but they still didn't mention the key reason is that Denver and some other cities are 'sanctuary' so there are plenty of drunken or high illegals cruising around with no insurance and no penalties until they kill someone.

A couple things. Even the Fox News Cable network is all in on Amnesty. Murdoch loves him some illegals. And second I figure most local news are still going to be super liberal and if it's anything like around here the local Fox affiliate is probably sharing the "News department with the local ABC or NBC affiliate.

for the "physical and emotional safety of our customers and ourselves,"
according to the shop's social media.

Hasta Muerte Coffee, an employee-owned co-op, will not serve officers in

The sergeant who was turned away from the shop a few weeks ago said he
was surprised by employees refusing to serve him, but walked out without

As an aside:

"Garand never received any royalties from his M1 rifle design despite over six and a half million M1 rifles being manufactured as he transferred on January 20, 1936 all rights regarding his inventions to the U.S.

A bill was introduced in Congress to award him $100,000 in appreciation, but it did not pass."

WE DO NOT.We(all of us here) live in the most exceptional country on the planet, populated by an extraordinary people, something I've repeatedly pointed out.

We are because of the 3 precepts of our founding:

The Declaration of Independence--the WHY.

The Bill of Rights--that which is inalienable for all, conferred by God.

The Constitution--the blueprint.

Faithful adherence to those precepts has allowed us to flourish and become the nation we are.

Suckage has got nothing to do with it.

It seems to me that about 90 percent of the time, it ain't that much different from living anywhere else in flyover country. (Bear in mind that, outside of Chicago and burbs, E. St. Louis, and the major college towns, Trump won just about every county in IL, and his approval rating downstate is at or just above 50 percent -- significantly higher than Gov. RINO Rauner.)

The other 10 percent of the time, however, is the rub... when you're paying your state and local/property tax bill, driving on chronically busted up roads, not being able to get decent public services, having to jump through all kinds of hoops to do something as simple as make money braiding hair, etc.

Fiats had pretty good engineering, but assembly quality, and finish materials were way sub-par. Older Audis had that problem, too. Plus bad electricals that made Lucas look good. Fixed up an old Audi Fox for a crony of mine. He was a big guy, 6'4" and 300 poinds, and the rear springs of his car were, in a word, bagged. I found a set of Fiat coils in the auto wreckers, and installed those for him, and brought the back end up to the point that it sat level with him in it. He was delighted with it. A year or so later, he sold it to me for a hundred bucks, because he'd gotten a good job, and was able to move to something better.
I didn't drive the Fox long, but it was a hell of a driver's car. Very pitchable. Way more fun to drive than the VW Rabbit, with which it shared the engine. But door handles fell off, switched fell out of the dash, and so on. I traded it to a lesbian girl for a Datsun 510 sedan, which I basically restored, and sold for a nice profit.

384 "342 which would you rather have a burt reynolds trans am or a retromod delorean?"

I remember when I was a high school kid working late nights at McDonalds slinging burgers, I walked out one night and saw a brand new Trans Am in the parking lot, and that was the very first time I fell absolutely in love with a car at first sight - I had never seen anything like it before. I actually think that happened in 1974, which was 3 years before Burt catapulted the car into fame among teenagers everywhere.

Posted by: Tom Servo at March 12, 2018 12:15 AM (V2Yro)

385 lol. well, the restomod portion is where you
improve on the flaws of the original car. the trans am was fine as
designed, however the delorean needs some help. some guy is putting
stabilizer bars / stiffeners, bigger wheels, bigger and better breaks,
better everything, especially a better engine like an ls1 v8.

I would sooner have a modified second-generation Corvair, with a hot V8 in the back seat, driving a flopped transaxle. 350 Corvairs, done that way, were a thing for a while. Nearly perfect weight distribution, low polar moment of inertia, plus a really pretty body design, one of GM's best ever.

408 a Datsun 510 sedan, which I basically restored, and sold for a nice profit.
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon
----------

I drove 510 for 18 years. It was gradually tricked out. Streetable, but very stiff suspension. I ran a lot of auto-crosses in that car. When I finally sold it, the guys who bought took it IMSA IS racing. It had 196K on when I sold it. One engine rebuild early, with 9:1 pistons, mild head work, and a warmer cam.

It was a terrific car. It could blow off BMWs and sundry other 'performace' Jap cars before they knew what had happened.

During Jag's "Ford Years", when owned by FoMoCo, those quality and reliability issues were pretty much ironed out and put "paid" to that reputation.

Keep in mind, that among the American Big Three, it was Ford that first gave a full buy-in to Deming and Crosby type Statistical Quality Control practices and culture.

That was concurrent with the rollout of the (then) revolutionary first generation Ford Taurus.

Think about it. I don't think you can name another car in the modern era, that completely reset an entire industry, as did the Taurus/Sable, in the domestic market when it first appeared.

It had no earth-shaking, groundbreaking new technology. But, it was Ford, hitting the magic with the right blend of adopting FWD, aerodynamics, ergonomics and a (for then) radical, new and un-traditional, breakthrough styling.

All that, and a radical tightening-up in all aspects on the Quality Control front. And, it worked.

My ex had a succession of corporate fleet Tauruses... first generation through the '00 restyle.

Were they a C class Benz? Certainly, not.

An acceptable alternative for a third of the cost?

Bullseye.

And they sold 'em by the millions.

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at March 12, 2018 12:46 AM (y3sT9)

Older Jags, back in the '50's, used a Studebaker transmission, a Detroit Gear DG250, last used on '55 Studebakers. Three speed, with a lockup torque converter, a very advanced feature for its day. Studebaker engineers worked with the Detroit Gear Division of Borg-Warner to create that line of transmissions, and scooped Ford and Chevy in offering a fully automatic transmission in a low-price car. Ford Motor Company was so impressed with it, that they wanted to buy the rights to use it from Studebaker, and Studebaker shot themselves in the foot by saying, "No." So Ford worked with Warner Gear to develop the Fordomatic, which was simpler, and cheaper to build. And Ford sold a bunch of 'em, too.
Eventually, the Detroit Gear transmission became to expensive for Studebaker, and they had to go to Ford and license the use of the Fordomatic, which was called the Flightomatic when installed in '56 and newer Studebakers. BUt Jaguar, and possibly some other niche builders continued to use the DG 250 for some time.

I reflashed mine back to original specs, amd damned near broke my neck on my first test-drive. Had a lotta speeding tickets afterwards.

Speaking as a hockey mom, I have yet to find a better vehicle for mom-ing than my old 2004 Taurus Station Wagon.

I could load up eight kids and all their hockey gear and still have room for snacks for the road. And it definitely was NOT a minivan, thank heaven. Those things were deathtraps.

I miss the old girl. Had to part ways when we moved from WI. Somebody had to drive the Uhaul, so I drove the truck.

Somehow, this lousy Buick Century isn't getting the job done. I no longer haul eight kids, but honestly, this beater with a heater, while a good economic choice, does nothing for the hockey mom in me.

Heh. A guy I knew was a mechanic who owned his own little shop in a tiny town in central B.C. One year, for the May Day (not the Commie one, Victoria Day, eh) parade, he grafted the front ends of two old Honda Civics together to make a Pushmi-Pullyu car. So he and his helper drive this thing in the parade. Halfway along the main street (all 2 blocks of it), they exit the car, and have a furious, shouting argument, almost come to blows. Then they both hopped in the car, and drove off in both directions, each car having caster wheels to support its "back" end where it came apart at the middle.

Agree. Vegas has lots of touristy stuff to do, and it also has great airline connections to most parts of the USA, and Canada. There is a reason why it is a favored convention destination.

Quite. Same with iOS. Saves a lot of keyboard switching.

iOS also has a neat feature where instead of switching to the number/punctuation keyboard and then back to letters, you can hold-and-drag from the punctuation key, release on the number or character you want, and it types it and then switches back to letters.

I... hate the iOS one way less than I thought I would when I first heard about it. Jobs-era Apple was always better than anyone at UI/UX. Like how when you select a sub-menu from a menu item? You can actually mouse off the sub-menu header and it stays selected, there's enough slop built in that as long as you move x pixels right for every y you move up or down, it knows what you're trying to do. Only took every other GUI fifteen years to figure that one out.

It's been going downhill since that skeuomorphic shit they played with for a while ca. 2012 though.

695 I... hate the iOS one way less than I thought I
would when I first heard about it. Jobs-era Apple was always better than
anyone at UI/UX. Like how when you select a sub-menu from a menu item?
You can actually mouse off the sub-menu header and it stays selected,
there's enough slop built in that as long as you move x pixels right for
every y you move up or down, it knows what you're trying to do. Only
took every other GUI fifteen years to figure that one out.



It's been going downhill since that skeuomorphic shit they played with for a while ca. 2012 though.

Posted by: hogmartin at March 12, 2018 03:21 AM (y87Qq)

I hate that nested menu shit, whether it's on phones, or computers, or TV remotes, or automated phone answerers. You can never back up just one step, if you make a wrong pick.
And I would like to see a feature on smart (and flip) phones that would let you plug it into a computer and modify its firmware. Like, I hate, hate, hate that damn vibrator feature. I would like to go into firmware, and disable the vibrator in every mode. I would also like to delete from the menues any features or options that I never want to use, so that if I do want to make a change on the fly, I don't have to scroll through a bunch of useless crap to do it. Needless to say, I would store a copy of the default firmware on my PC, in the event that I needed to restore the phone to as-built status.

Somewhere in your settings, you should be able to turn off "smart punctuation". That should fix you up.

790 Our culture has obviously changed to devalue life, and also to devalue personal responsibility. What was once normal now shocks the pursed lip crowd.

most concerning imo is how this was TO US deliberately by our enemies.

"Naked Communist" and Orwell, many wrote of the infiltration, and yet "those people" are now the swamp, fighting from within our government. (as well as our other institutions).

Not physical protection. Not worried at all about that, but just the case that they may slander me to others I know who know them, which is never a pleasant experience to go through.

No doubt. I said it MAYnot be necessary-not that you couldn't. Grammie is excited and she was obviously taking about herself. Perhaps you should consider not letting your own negative feelings rain on her parade.

Grammie can handle herself and I am not in need of a lecture.

809 The holy trinity of March is Spring Training, March Madness and DST. Who could ask for anything more?
Posted by: grammie winger

I'm not a big baseball fan, but watching spring training and golf on TV this time of year gives me the smiles for summer

Posted by: Bruce at March 12, 2018 07:35 AM (8ikIW)

810 Oh, it's nothing Fen. Insomniac and I have a contract, - he can rain on my parade 8 times per week, and I can kick him in the keester twice daily, thrice on Wednesdays. It's a good arrangement.

Posted by: grammie winger - at March 12, 2018 07:36 AM (fD4nI)

No actually you probably do. You do nothing to help yourself-take no suggestions from anyone, don't want anyone to help you and yet feel a need to carp about someone's simple pleasures.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at March 12, 2018 07:38 AM (8+Ozj)

814 "Two men and a woman are accused of chasing down two 14-year-old
suspected car thieves, forcing them into the trunk of their car at
gunpoint and driving them to the Cleveland Police Fourth District
headquarters, according to police."

Shoot, shovel and shut up.
Problem solved.
