Quotes of The Day

Quote I

So, let’s be clear. There is no doubt that the climate is changing. The climate has always changed and always will. The climate will never stay the same – nor should it. The only thing more absurd than denying climate change is thinking that humans can stop it from changing. But when people today say the words “climate change” they mean something else. They mean that humans are to blame. Allan Chatenay


Quote II

"In a certain sense we were able to accomplish more in the minority than we had the presidency or were even in the majority." Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY)


Quote III

We're talking about stupid people with a progressive education, a toxic mix that is never good news. Pat Condell

*****


You have your hard labor, your organized labor, your menial labor, your labor of love and now Emotional Labor.

A communications professor at the University of San Francisco is urging colleges to pay female faculty members for their “emotional labor.”

Brandi Lawless, who teaches classes oriented towards social justice, argued in the March issue of Review of Communications that “emotional labor” is a form of academic work, just like teaching classes and grading homework is for professors.

Emotional labor refers to “demonstrations of sympathy and empathy, one-on-one attention, supportive communication, counseling, general development of personal relationships, and making a person 'feel good,'” according to Lawless.

Really?

Anyone who has had a MRI knows it is an uncomfortable procedure. British scientists develop a wearable MRI scanner.

NOTTINGHAM, England (CBS) British scientists have invented a new type of brain scanner that patients can wear on their head allowing them to move while being tested.


The device, which looks like a prop from a budget sci-fi movie or phantom of the opera, is in fact the latest thing in brain scanning.

"I think in terms of mapping brain activity, brain function, this represents a step change," said Matt Brookes, a physicist at the University of Nottingham.

Because you can do this while wearing it -- play bat and ball, or even drink a cup of tea.

The ONT Musical Interlude

March 25, 1938, Born on this day, Hoyt Axton, US singer, songwriter and actor who wrote songs for Elvis Presley, Three Dog Night, ('Joy to the World'), John Denver, Ringo Starr and Glen Campbell. He had his own hits with ‘When The Morning Comes’ and ‘Flash Of Fire’. Acting roles included Bionic Woman and McCloud.

Funny thing. When the New England Patriot's tight end Aaron Hernandez was busy with guns, Pats owner Robert Kraft was quiet. Fast forward a couple of years the NFL has gone full blown SJW and so has Pats owner Robert Kraft.

Students and families from Parkland, Fla., were transported to Washington, D.C., ahead of the “March for Our Lives” against gun violence this Saturday with the help of the New England Patriots.

On Thursday, team owner Robert Kraft provided the team’s official plane to fly the families of the 17 victims of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting and some of the students who were injured to the nation’s capital for the event, Patriots spokesman Stacey James said.

San Francisco as with all large cities have problems.Of course animal hides and meat consumption has to be addressed.

We are happy to hear that cleanliness and hygiene are not issues.

In November of 2017 alone, 6,211 needles were collected while via the 311 App (the “concerned citizen” reporting app set up by recently deceased San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee), 1,498 requests were made to clean up human feces. The public defecation problem has become so intolerable in San Francisco that private citizens have built an online map to track the concentrations of poop in the city, so that pedestrians may know to avoid certain areas.

And it’s not just poop. The overwhelming smell of urine on parts of Mission Street and Market Street would make your nose bleed. I recall the first time I rode BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit, San Francisco’s subway system) and was nearly knocked over by the sheer stench of the station. I was surprised to learn that exiting the station supplied little to no relief — the urine smell hangs heavy in the more populated areas of the city and is nearly inescapable. In a dark twist of humor, the city has had to replace numerous different street poles due to urine eroding the foundation.

Use of animals = bad.

Animal behavior = good.


*****


Better dope. Better Genius Award Winner.

PIERCE COUNTY, Wash. - He barreled through the wrong fence, thought he was being chased by paratroopers falling from the sky and nearly got hit by a plane.

It all started, the man later told Pierce County sheriff's deputies, when his search for "better dope" hit trouble early Tuesday when he ran out of gas.


*****


It isn't very often a little brother pulls his own weight. Tonight is different. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.


Marine's Baby Brother Steps In For Girlfriend's Prom Photo Shoot. Skylar Fontaine, 18, of New Orleans was initially upset that her boyfriend Gage, 19, couldn't take her to prom because he is currently thousands of miles away training for his Military Occupation Specialty on the East Coast.

So, she recruited his 2-year-old baby brother to fill in for him.

31 There's a theory that the Flat Earthers are a false flag by *insert alphabet agency here* to see exactly the level of stupid that Americans are willing to believe.

I know we don't do conspiracy theories around here but I find that theory somewhat believable. It beats believing that the Flat Earthers are an actual grassroots movement or something.

My mom's 70th birthday was a week ago. She is virtually impossible to surprise, yet my dad and I managed to pull one over on her. I showed up at their snowbird home in Florida without her knowing. She went out to lunch with one of her ladies' groups...meanwhile dad was picking me up from the airport. She got home from lunch and I was there. She was stunned and so happy we both cried.

It was amazing.

72 Evening Horde!

It was my privilege to attend the commissioning ceremony of the USS Ralph Johnson (DDG 114) this weekend. It was glorious for many, many reasons but I wanted to share, for me at least, the most important point I took away from the day.

Every speaker, and there were about 10 of them, spent most of their time and remarks discussing PFC Ralph Johnsons relationship with God, how he lived and died for that relationship, and how we, every one of us, must also embrace our Lord and live accordingly.

The dais was thick with politicians; Sen Tim Scott, Mayor Tecklenburg, and the local House Reps - so speechifying was to be expected. But to a man, they left the electioneering at home, and praised Johnson and implored us to emulate him and ask each Jesus each day, why am I here and how can I serve you?

Rev. Collins of the Shiloh AME Church, Johnsons home church, delivered a sermon for the ages with all the energy and passion that one might expect driving the same message home.

Commandant of the Marine Corps, General Neller, did likewise. I caught up with him after the ceremony and he told me after Rev. Collins speech, he was moved to dump his prepared remarks, and veer into what I would term an ad lib *fight for Christ, fight for goodness, fight for America, every G*ddamn day* lecture delivered as only a Marine could.

It was almost a revival.

Johnsons sister, Mizz Helen, was so overcome with feeling that she could not finish her words. The emcee, who I believe was the XO of the Johnson, had to take over and complete her remarks.

I fear we are in for rough days ahead due to all the reasons we discuss here daily.

But if the like minded among our countrymen have as much heart as the speakers, the guests and the sailors, spouses and families that were in attendance, we will be alright in the end.

And I think they do.

Used to drink with a clinical psychologist. When I'd go to get in his shit, I'd aver that prostitution is bought love, whilst psychological counseling is bought friendship -- which is cheaper?

had a healthy breakfast, i forget what, and 6 or 7 cups of coffee, with cream and sugar.

they opened up, put me on the table, telling me not to move, if i could help it, then pushed me in.

they had to wake me up when they pulled me out: being on the somewhat cushioned table, with the low, steady "bang bang bang" was like being on a 50 cal range, but not on the line, so, like any good GI, i fell asleep.

"Joyce and I are together today, after more than 2 weeks apart.  There have been some changes since we were last together, and she is having more difficulty speaking and walking, and has some hemi-paresis on her right. 

But, she's still Joyce, and we are so happy to be together, visiting my horse, eating avocado toast with farm fresh eggs, doing nails, and relaxing together. I've posted a photo showing how much her hair has grown!  Joyce is still enjoying all of her games and hearing from all of her friends and family. We'll be together again on Wednesday."

151 Trump is missing the response to the anti-gun marches.

He should propose that using a firearm in the commission of a violent felony be made a Federal crime, five year minimum penalty.

This would tie up the Democrats in knots, because violent criminals, their friends, and their families, are part of the Democratic base. It would also focus attention on how Soros-backed district attorneys in places like Chicago and Philadelphia give violent criminals a slap on the wrist.

Instead of trying to take away guns from law-abiding cities, let's shift the focus on the people who actually use guns to commit violent crimes.

152 I meant to mention this in the gub thread but life was intervening.

Took the kids to the NRA Firearms Museum today. As a kind of counter protest. Wanted to go yesterday but again, life sort of intervened.

did pass by the HQ a couple of times yesterday and expected to see protesters there, and apparently they did, too, because there was some police tape up in the parking lot. But none to be found. Not even the LGBT dance off protest.

So, anyway, the museum. That was a LOT of filigree. some kind of neat weapons to see. A section on "America's Rifle" - the AR-15.

Heh, use that next time someone goes AR is for Assault rifle....

easier fix: executive order mandating that *all* US Attorneys will file federal charges on ALL felons caught with a gun, even those arrested by state or local agencies, and that all suspected "straw purchases" be fully investigated, and every one that proves to be one is also prosecuted. All with no plea deals, or lessened sentences. full federal max time.

216 The actress Cynthia Nixon (net worth $60 million) is running for governor of New York.

She's figured out New York's basic problem: gosh darn it, New York state residents just aren't taxed enough!

She's going to fix that though - and she's going to raise the minimum wage to $15 across New York state. It's unclear if she actually knows anyone in upstate New York, but she'll work on that.

And the number one concern of people in "low-income communities of color" in New York is "protecting undocumented people". I'm sure the average black person in New York is terribly, terribly concerned about the illegals who compete against him for jobs.

Yeah, and Pompeii, and Sorrento, and Capri. Venice was nice, but appearance wise it was pretty much Florence on the water. Amazing how every region was different, even the food. We did solve one life long mystery. My father is fluent in Italian, but was born in the USA, and we never really knew what dialect he spoke, he didn't even know, but his parents were off the boat, so he learned real Italian, just wasn't sure what Italian. Every time he opened his mouth the natives had him pegged from Naples, even though his family was closer to Rome.

The food changed from region to region. I would say Rome had the best food IF you judge it by just walking into a hole in the wall place and ordering something. There was NO bad food in Rome. It was actually pretty damn amazing.

Florence on the other hand had shit food. It was spotty. Walk into a hole in wall place and it was really hit or miss. I had the worst pizza in my life there, and the coffee was shit across the board. Rome on the other hand had amazing coffee no matter where you went, and the food was off the frigging charts.

My brother who was there 13 years ago seems to think a lot has changed, its gotten more commercial. He never saw wine from a bottle when he was there, they always brought out wine in small pitchers.

No need to be all that technical, though schematics DO have their usefulness, to the person sufficiently trained and electromechanically educated so as to make sense of 'em.

Simply pull up Bing or Duck squared Go, and type in your machine's model number with the words "flashing light won't run".

And then select from the various You Tube videos on how to fix the thing.

View enough of those to be confident in what it is you're going to repair. Different videos will address different problems and offer different solutions thereto.

Choose.... wisely.

420 It's interesting that in Canada, the SJWs are also fighting for a $15 minimum wage. Communist Kathleen of Ontario has already legislated this great leap forward for robotics.

Of course, the Canadian dollar is only worth ~ 0.77 of the US dollar (and pretty unlikely to increase) ... which kind of makes all Canadian workers the legislated de facto equivalent of the imaginary "underpaid" US female worker.

421 It's also interesting how a word can have different meanings to each branch of the military.

For example, tell someone from each branch to "secure" a building.

A Marine will put together a squad to storm on in there and take it by force.

An Army guy will put up a fence around it and set up a patrol schedule.

A Navy guy will turn off the lights and lock the doors.

An Air Force guy will negotiate a 99-year lease with an option to buy.

I've still got the $289 "builder's grade" GE dishwasher that came with the house in 2008.

It's basically "never used" but a few times a year.

Reason being, it's loud. VERY VERY LOUD!

A mid-price machine would cut the noise in half, but then again, I just seem to do OK with hand washing the dishes, pots n' pans. And I do a LOT of cooking here, too. Not just "heat n' serve" crap, either.

Here's the real problem. All of the appliances here are "white" finish.

And if one wants to make a change, it's a change of the fridge, dishawasher, range/oven, and microwave/vent-hood unit, all at once. It's all gotta be done as a set, or be all mis-matched dreck.

THAT is what gets expensive, all of a sudden.

Like
I said, there was a time where all dishwashers were NOT created equal.
Not sure these days. My father's business was kitchen/bath remodeling,
so I put in a shit ton of dishwashers in my time. I remember in the 90's
there was a high end dishwasher that was $1500 back then, but it was
dead quiet, you could not hear that sucker running. It was built like a
tank inside, heavy gauge stainless, real quality. I think it was from a
Swedish company. When I did my own kitchen one of the better cabinet
companies had a special where they gave you a free dishwasher if you
ordered a kitchen. Well, that sucker died in 6 years because it was a
cheap pos. Then I put in a better one, that went about 10-12 years, and
then I went for a higher end whirlpool. It was the quietest one yet. Its
got about 10 years on it and it still works and looks new. I just don't
know about these days, but you definitely used to get what you payed
for.

443 Oh yes, it's probably insanely bad luck to chime in here, but the dishwasher here is at least 28 years old - and works fine. Not quiet like the new ones, of course.


And the frig is the same age - but it's high-end .... but damn, nearly 30 years, and working fine. Frig actually has a death warrant, due to age - water absorption in the insulation eventually kills them. But the mechanics are 100%, after all these decades.


The clothes dryer my family had when I was growing up lasted 45 years. I have the manual - outstanding 1960s memorabilia (smiling stereotypical housewife on the cover). Of course the thing was just a motor to turn the tumbler, a gas heater, and some simple switches/timers.

453 My first "legal" jobs in my youth, were various "dishwasher" jobs in restaurant sculleries.

Now, an Auto-Chlor machine bears ZERO resemblance to a home dishwashing machine, but I did learn a bit about keeping pace with the needs for clean dishes, pots, pans, cutlery, and other such in a commercial kitchen.

Which is why my home kitchen sink features twin deep basins, and an extra-tall, spring-stabilized, hand-lever control commercial spray nozzle mounted on the swivel above the sinks.

There is not a residential, under-counter dishwashing machine, that can even come close to competing with the throughput of clean and rinsed kitchen ware than I can run through the sinks and under the sprayer.

And, I get it 100% clean, the first time, too.

Commercial kitchens offer no slack, and I learned THAT, the hard way in the early and mid '70s. And those lessons stay with me to this day.

well, everything that gets used gets washed including the dog dishes. do not like to pack the dishwasher as tightly as possible, probably only run 90 percent of max, maybe 85. may run more because if there is anything dirty before bed it goes in the dishwasher and we run it so there are not any dirty dishes lying around.

So, the radio on our ancient Nissan quest has gone wonky.

Sometimes the volume = 0, other times it will go up some, but not to full volume, even if the display says it's eleventy.

And then, yesterday, all the presets reset as if the battery had been disconnected but it hadn't been.

Also, sometimes there's static on strong stations that only clears up if we turn the car off and back on.

So, how often do we need to change the radio fluid? And do we need different weight depending on whether we listen more to FM than AM?

496 Interesting item came up today. I've been helping Jerry Pournelle's family go through the dozens of file boxes of old documents to see if there is anything of note before it gets sent to a collection at UC Riverside.

An entire novel nobody remember and a novella, both under the old pen name Wade Curtis. (Wade curtis apepared as a stand-in for Jerry in some of his collaborations with Larry Niven, who was in there as Nat Reynolds.) The novella is a WWIII story with a lead character named John Christian Falkenberg. But this is not a CoDominium story. It's vaguely contemporary to the era of its writing and has no overt SF elements.

Since this has to predate the CoDominium setting for the Falkenberg and later Second Empire stories (such as 'Mote In God's Eye') the latest it was likely written was 1970, since the first Falkenberg's Legion story was in Analog in 1971. It may even be a couple years older than that. This is interesting because in the story Falkenberg is talking about the incident that caused him to leave the US military and become a mercenary.

He's stationed in support of a foreign embassy under threat by rioting. Civilians are being flown out by helicopter (this is written well before the fall of Saigon too) while the troops are ordered to stay in barracks. The helicopter gets Falkenberg's daughter to safety but fails before it can make the last trip that would include Falkenberg's wife. She's brutalized and murdered when the embassy falls.

The country?

Iran.

This gave me quite a surprise, as it was written at least a decade before the Islamic Revolution in Iran.

"So, the radio on our ancient Nissan quest has gone wonky. "

Psychically reaching through the Internet to examine your radio, one thing I'd do is check the wiring harness connections to the radio. Losing all presets suggests that it has lost power, and static, even on strong stations suggests a ground connection problem (I experienced this when I had a car alarm installed in my vehicle: immediate noise. Took it back and the installer fixed it in a few minutes).

Volume not agreeing with the volume control setting: my Honda radio has a similar problem: I turn the volume knob, and usually nothing happens, but sometimes the volume jumps up 2 or 3 bars, some times it jumps down to 1 bar or off. I think the control is actually an encoder, and it is dirty. My mechanic tells me that fooling with the radio is a loosing proposition; live with it (cheapest) or get a new one (next cheapest solution). The repair is likely to cost more than a new (and really cool) one.

Swapping in one from a junked car ... I think you might have to have the dealer play with a security code, to get the replacement radio to work. I think this because no one steals radios anymore, as they have "security mojo" that is tough to beat: codes, receptacle in the car needed (and tough to get to), etc.

505 when we remodeled our kitchen, we went to Lowes and found a Fisher-Pykel (SP?) floor model for ~$500.

two drawers, designed to keep kosher, but, set to the "fast/eco" setting, each will clean a batch of dishes, utensils, etc, in <40 minutes, start to finish.

great for small households, as you don't need to load everything you own in, prior to hitting start, and, if you're entertaining, you can clean as you go, so less mess the next day. even at full price, we'll buy another one, should we either move or need to replace this unit.

Back in my undergraduate days I worked in the dishroom of my dorm, which accomodated about 1,000 folks. The hierarchy of jobs, from noob to veteran, was work the window (pulling trays and separating dishes and utensils), rinser, dishwasher unloader and dishwasher loader. There were two dropoff windows and the dishwasher was a Hobart industrial model with a working belt around fifteen feet in length with supplied steam for sanitizing by extreme heat near the takeoff end. Stuff came off that bed HOT, so you quickly developed hands to take that heat or you couldn't do the unloader's job. A good pairing of loader and unloader was like a well-tuned machine and had no belt stops for failing to keep up with the workload despite the loader attempting to flood the unloader with long runs of the more difficult dishes to handle.

I worked there for two-plus years, worked all the jobs and kicked ass in every one. You knew when you were doing your job well and you developed a great sense of satisfaction about that. Great fun.

512 Hi nightstalkers.

I'm watching a CSPAN thing where Boris Johnson is being questioned by a committee. I love how the UK system has so much more direct back and forth than our Kabuki does.

But that's not what I came here to talk about. I came to mention that one of the girls on the committee is named Clwyd.

I'm going to to out on a limb and guess that that name is Welsh.

For the love of God, no! Those assholes are almost as bad to deal with than Sallie Mae. I had it new with the 'stang, got it for the Subaru, found out I didn't really use it enough to justify the cost and went through hell on the phone to get them to cancel it. I was going to keep the app on the cell phone just in case I wanted to hear Radio Classics but by the time I was done I said fuck it, dump it all. High Pressure Salesmanship, they gots it, and they never ever let up.
Not to mention, it's getting really difficult to find a radio that has the Sirius XM jack in the back.
But if you want one...ping me via email, LPCARD at the hotmail thingy, I got one that you can plug into an aux jack or run over the FM radio, you can have it for the cost of shipping it to you. Includes an antenna, the docking station, the power cord and the aux input cable.

528 SiriusXM came built-in on the new car we got last September. I already knew I'd never use it. A friend of mine has it in his car and I just didn't find it to be something worth shelling out for when I have a backlog of many dozen audio books to get through. But not a week goes by that I don't get at least one piece of mail from them. Worse, they were calling the house for a while, adding tot he already infuriating level of phone spam we get.

I estimate I'd have to subscribe for at least a year before they'd hope to break even on all they've expended trying to get me onboard.

So Progressives got alcohol banned from 1920 to 1933 creating some of the worst gangs and crime ever seen. Along with their depression worsening government controls kept the US in the Dark Ages for over 10 years.

When the Progressive Media ask (or tells) me to care about something I know it is time for no fuks are given. I do not care. Progressivism is one big campaign to make you care about thing you can do nothing about. In the grand scheme of life you can control about 3 things. Where you put your dick (or allow dicks to be put). How much abuse you give your body. And if you are going to Heaven. Everything else is just BS to get you to care.

.It works great, better than the other one actually. It comes with the bigger battery too. I like the Ryobi system and bought into it almost as soon as it came on the market.

They have been consistent over the years unlike some other Stores that get a brand or type of battery tools and then drop them in a few years for something else.

Don't waste your time and money on the small one that is on sale right now though, it must have been made for midgets and can't be adjusted for height.
