The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

The idea behind giving professors lifetime tenure is that this will enable them to speak out freely. But it would be hard to name any other occupation with a more cowardly record than academics, who have been giving in to politically correct campus bullies ever since the 1960s. Thomas Sowell

Quote II

“But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you - and why?” Walter E. Williams


Quote III

“Only the Democratic Party could produce a string of presidential candidates who oppose school choice and vouchers while sending their own children to lily-white private schools. Only the Democratic Party could hysterically denounce a Supreme Court nominee for allegedly making unwanted sexual advances in the workplace and then applaud a president who was receiving oral sex from a White House intern while discussing deploying American troops with a congressman on the phone. Indeed, only the Democrats could oppose Clarence Thomas, actually block Supreme Court nominee Douglas Ginsburg (for marijuana use), and then run Bill Clinton for president.” Ann Coulter

Are you an employer? Do you wish to do the right thing? Refusing to hire a DACA recipient is illegal.

Federal courts say DACA workers are now a protected class
So far, DACA workers seem to have a good chance of winning. In April, a federal judge in Florida ruled that DACA recipients are a protected class, and allowed the lawsuit to proceed. A federal judge in New York came to the same conclusion in the first DACA lawsuit filed in 2014. That case was eventually settled.

The first DACA worker to file a discrimination lawsuit was a 25-year-old college graduate from Yonkers, New York. It was 2014, and Ruben Juarez had just graduated with an undergraduate degree in accounting. He recently had been accepted to Fordham University to pursue a master’s degree in global finance.

Your Federal Government, working hard to protect you from the evil ginseng peddlers that walk among us.


A southwest Missouri couple who illegally bought ginseng from Arkansas has been sentenced to a year of probation.

The Springfield News-Leader reports 77-year-old Kermit Schofield and his wife, 73-year-old Sandy Schofield were sentenced Tuesday in a courtroom packed with supporters from their hometown.

The couple farms and sells herbs in Theodosia, a town of about 250 people near the Missouri-Arkansas border.


Attempting to overthrow a duly elected POTUS? High paying gigs at CNN.

Too much coffee? No!!!!!! Too much water? Yes. Over hydration can kill you.

In 2017, a University of Texas football coach created a urine-based “Longhorn Football Hydration Chart,” which labeled players with yellow urine as “selfish teammates” and those with brown urine as “bad guys.” This “hydration shaming” practice has permeated high school sports, thereby encouraging a sporting culture which equates superior performance with superior hydration.

Overzealous obedience to this hydration advice has uncovered a dark underbelly to superior hydration practices: overhydration. When high school football player Walker Wilbanks died in Mississippi in August 2014 from overhydration, the doctor said that the cause of death was an “unpredictable freak occurrence.”

Diane Feinstein, Paragon of virtue has some 'splaining to do.

Why is Face Book Racist and Misogynistic? Why do they want to block this advertisement?

The advantages of living in a big city? Bird Electric Scooters.

What's the law say? You get to be the judge and render your decision opinion.

If someone stole your car, and 15 years later you saw a stranger driving it, would you have a legal claim to getting it back?

For most cars, you probably wouldn't even care by then. But two parties with claims to a $7 million piece of rolling French art stolen from a Milwaukee garage care a lot, and a court in Wisconsin could decide who gets the vehicle, now being sequestered at an East Coast business after shady export from and return to the U.S.

The ONT Musical Interlude



August 8, 1986, David Crosby of Crosby, Stills and Nash was released from prison after serving three years for drug and weapons possession. His conviction would be overturned by a Texas appeals court in November 1987. via thisdayi.com


I guess that's a big Ooops.

August 8, 1961, Born on this day, The Edge (Dave Evans), guitarist, singer, songwriter with U2. They signed with Island Records and released their debut album, Boy in 1980. Their 1987 worldwide No.1 album The Joshua Tree spent 156 weeks on the UK chart. Their U2 360° Tour of 2009–2011 is the highest-attended and highest-grossing concert tour in history. via thisdayinmusic.com

Need some metal? Need some death metal? The ONT has you covered.

She may not look like one, but 96-year-old Inge Gingsberg is a rock star. She is the songwriter and lead vocalist of death metal group TritoneKings and is known as “Death-Metal Grandma”.

Inge has had quite a remarkable life. She grew up in Austria, but was forced to flee to Switzerland in the early days of World War 2, to avoid persecution. She spent years in a refugee camp, and after the war, she and her husband relocated to Hollywood, where they had to start their new life from scratch. Inge was able to begin a career in the music industry, composing songs for some of the most popular singers at the time, such as Nat King Cole, Doris Day, and Dean Martin. After a while, Inge started to get tired of Hollywood life, and decided to reinvent herself. Today, she is the vocalist of a death metal band.

These two guys dazed and confused. But, It's better to burn out than it is to rust.

Satire, What is it good for? Chuckles and snorts.

WASHINGTON—Following immediately on the heels of his hearing before the House Judiciary and Oversight committees, FBI agent Peter Strzok was again summoned to testify before Congress Thursday about texts calling Trey Gowdy a “pissy little shithead.” “Now what exactly did you mean when you said Trey Gowdy was a ‘dickless fuck-weasel who couldn’t investigate his way out of a goddamn paper bag’?” asked Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte during an oftentimes heated exchange....

Pretty big talk coming Elon Musk. Wonder what the hell he would do if the government subsidies dried up?

Elon Musk said he's thinking about taking Tesla private. More specifically, he said he may buy back the company for $71.3 billion (at a share price of $420), and already has the funding to do so. From a report:
Musk, the CEO and largest shareholder of the electric car maker, said on Twitter on Tuesday that he has secured funding from a private buyer. He implied that the funding values the company at $420 a share. The stock had been worth about $342 a share before Musk's tweet, and shares quickly jumped as high as $371. The stock had climbed slightly earlier in the day after the Financial Times reported that Saudi Arabia has quietly built a big stake in Tesla. Tesla didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. About an hour and 20 minutes after the Musk tweet, trading in Tesla stock was suspended because the company was expected to release news.

The song "(You're) Having My Baby" has taken on a whole new meaning. Fertile woman in need of some serious couch time.

A woman who turned her back on men to 'have sex with ghosts' more than 11 years ago is now in a 'pretty serious' relationship.

And she revealed she hopes there may be a way for the pair to start a family.

UK-based Amethyst Realm, 30, a spiritual guidance counsellor, claims to have sexual encounters with 20 different ghostly lovers during the past 11 years.

Sounds a little promiscuous.

I discovered that if you buy a bottle of Barrel Hitch rye whiskey, with the cork and not the screwcap, and leave it on its side in the footwell of your car on a 100F day, all day, it heats up, shoots the cork out, and douses your floor mat with over half the bottle.

Couldn't drive THAT car today, I was concerned about being pulled over and given a field sobriety test for smelling like a distillery.

Link works for me as well. I'm talking about the lame-o reporters who didn't get the ages of the two men in all 4 of the pieces I've read about it. They describe them only as "elderly". 62 or 102 years old? Nobody said. Chances are none of the reporters did squat for reporting other than regurgitating what was in the police report.

62 "But let me offer you my definition of social justice: I keep what I earn and you keep what you earn. Do you disagree? Well then tell me how much of what I earn belongs to you - and why?" Walter E. Williams

More to the point: how much of what they earn are they going to give to us?

People who talk about social justice implicitly assume that they'll be the beneficiaries of the largess in question, not the providers of it.

I put that to a (black) friend of mine about "helping the poor." I replied, "Africans are MUCH poorer than American blacks, so how much are American blacks going to contribute to help the poor in Africa?"

Long silence.

"You see, you tacitly assumed that the help would be provided to American blacks, but on the same principle - that those who have more should give to those who have less - American blacks would be the providers of such help. Kinda puts a different complexion (?) on it, doesn't it?"

In fairness, he had the intellectual honesty to admit that it most certainly did.

139 August 8, 1986, David Crosby of Crosby, Stills and Nash was released from prison after serving three years for drug and weapons possession. His conviction would be overturned by a Texas appeals court in November 1987. via thisdayi.com

++++

In 1985, Crosby was arrested for drunken driving, a hit-and-run driving accident, and possession of a concealed pistol and drug paraphernalia. Crosby was arrested after driving into a fence in a Marin County suburb, where officers found a .45-caliber pistol and cocaine in his car.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Crosby#Drug_
charges,_legal_alcohol_issues_and_prison_time

If he was hitting and running in 1985, how could he have served 3 years when he was released in 1986?

Wiki does say that he did 9 months in 1982 for drugs and weapons. Wiki doesn't say what happened with the 1985 arrest or even if he got convicted on that one.

158 My latest FBI felony complaint:
In accordance with my 18 U.S. Code 4 obligation to report felonies to
federal law enforcement personnel I enter the following felony
complaint:



The corporations Facebook, Apple, Google and Spotify have each joined in
a conspiracy with Senator Mark Warner by taking actions to remove Alex
Jones Infowars site from internet services the companies each run. Since
Mr. Jones Infowars site is a for profit business - their actions are
conspiracies in restraint of trade - each of which is a felony violation
of 15 U.S. Code 1.



By the way, since the actions of these companies were all simultaneously
done out in the open in the same week, a first-year law student could
win these conspiracy cases against Clarence Darrow for the defense, so
there is absolutely no legal excuse for not prosecuting this.

Of Course,
if the relevant US Attorneys don't like what Mr. Jones does with his
site, and simply wish to join the corporations (whose names may be abbreviated as F.A.G.S.)
in the conspiracy I can certainly understand why they wouldn't
prosecute.

179 Some guys were reminiscing about old posters on the last thread; does anyone remember when Jim Treacher showed up one Friday night and Empire of Jeff made an offhand joke about his getting run into by the Paste Eater's security fleet of SUVs. Treacher went ballistic and EoJ started backtracking and apologizing but JT must've had a belly full of booze and pain pills because he wouldn't let up. Then some 'ettes tried calming him down and he was calling all of them cum dumpsters in terms that were vile even by my standards.

I was ready to jump in and unload on his monkey ass when my internet service went out. I went to call the AT&T assholes and my phone was just as dead. Here some service clown installed Uverse for someone and disconnected all my shit. Fortunately there's a service office not too far away and they looked up what happened right away but they couldn't get me back online until the next morning (plus back then they were a more standup company than the current bunch of miserly fucks and credited me a couple hundred for their screwup).

When I finally got back on everyone was talking about what a dumpster fire the whole thing was. A lot of people were saying cut Treacher slack but people who were online at the time were saying fuck that. I've never thought of him the same way since. EoJ felt a bit bad for being the spark that ignited things but it wasn't anything markedly different from his usual lines.

Sometimes we need to back off and apologize even when what we did wasn't so bad, just because we see someone is in a bad place and you'll push them too far.

In my rave kiddie days before I turned 29, we were warned that was the main risk of doin' X.

You'd be out there dancing, and you'd be dehydrated, and you'd want water. Also the water would taste REALLY GOOD. So you'd drink more of it than you needed to. Also you'd be tripping total balls so you'd lose track of how much you needed.

249 EoJ/Treacher was just plain bizarre. As I recall, EoJ's comment wasn't remotely a swipe at Treacher, but just a comment referencing the situation. Treacher went cockeyed-Nork ballistic and wouldn't stop. I can understand the guy being pissed-as-f about unaccountable 'roided government "security" shitbirds running him down in the street, but why take it out on EoJ just for mentioning it?

It'd be interesting to go back and read the comments and see if memory isn't playing tricks again; all I remember is wondering why Treacher was going off like that for no reason.

Yeah um, I can't eat certain kinds of food like cheese and I ignored that a few days once because cheese is so good. I started to have really orange and reddish wee and horrific cramps and uh, other signs of internal bleeding. Don't ignore what your body is telling you. It knows.

262 Feel free to skip this wall of text.

Regarding that Muslim compound in northern New Mexico, a couple of observations.

I know that area quite well. It is less than 40 miles from where my F-I-L disappeared (murdered by a neighbor in a ramshackle off grid home) back in 2008. That part of New Mexico is known as the upper Rio Grande Valley and is the southern extension of the San Luis Valley of Colorado. Together they form a diamon shaped high mountain valley with a very flat floor at about 7000' above sea level. The flats are nearly treeless and the vegetation is largely mixed scrub and sagebrush. There are more conifers as you get up into the mountains on either side of the valley.

The small town where the compound is located is on a side road off the highway, the side road goes up to a defunct small ski area in the hills.

Both sides of the border are very sparsely populated, with lots of 5 acre lots and some 30-40 acre lots. Mostly private land.

The western side of the valley is the site of traditional large Spanish land grants from the 1830s. Some, such as the Taylor Ranch have remained as large blocs. Others, such as the Forbes family holdings in Colorado have been subdivided into cabin site lots.

There are many, many off grid homes, as the San Luis Valley has over 340 days of sunshine a year, making it ideal for solar powered homes. Many of the occupied lots make ramshackle look upscale by comparison. There are lots with nothing but a pick-up camper or old school bus as residences. A few miles further south are some of the so-called earth ships (e.g. Dennis Weaver's place), made out of things like old auto tires and packed earth.

A junk filled compound would hardly cause a second look, being rather more par for the area.

The population is perhaps 70-80% Hispanic, many descendants of original Spanish settlers with 5-6 generation history in the area. Whites are most of the other 20-30%, roughly half of long-standing history and half relative newcomers. Blacks are much much less than 1% of the total. An openly Muslim garbed individual or group WOULD stand out like a sore thumb.

Everybody has guns. Everybody shoots on their own property. Some do so responsibly.

There is a substantial population of people "living in the shadows". Case in point being my F-I-L's neighbor who was a pedophile offender in violation of his parole living under a false name and the guy who started the forest fire last month, Jesper Jorgenson, in the country illegally.

It does not surprise me that they were able to stay there, even partially squatting on neighboring property for over a year. But I bet there were some raised eyebrows among the longer term residents.

267 I got a burrito on the sound in Seattle. It was the only thing on the menu that looked remotely edible.

The thing had stew in it. I don't mean "wow they put stuff in here like stew" I mean they cracked open a can of generic stew and poured it into a burrito. With carrots and potatoes. And it was really, really bad stew. Generally speaking, I'll eat whatever I buy because I paid money for it, but I couldn't gag this thing down.

I threw it at the trash and a seagull landed to try it. It flew away without eating any. It was that bad.

IMHO, regarding that stolen Talbot-Lago, if goods are stolen, there is no way that the thief can create good title to them by reselling. Car belongs to Mueller, full stop. If Warner, the current possessor, was not part of the theft ring that stole it, then he has cause for action against to dealer who sold the car to him.

I think his leg was broken really badly, too, it wasn't just a snap and some crutches for a while. I understand him being touchy and upset about it, but he went above and beyond the call. Maybe he's a mean drunk.

344 Paris has quite a few Tex Mex places. The French like to try different

of the same restaurants in this country. It is shocking what people
consider to be good Mexican food.

As for London, I remember a
place that was not overly authentic but still pretty cool. It was called
the Texas Embassy London. The restaurant was located next to the actual
location of the Embassy of Texas when Texas was a Republic. I think
Texas had embassies in London and Paris. I don't know if the place is
still around.

You can certainly get bad stuff in London, no doubt. I think even the Burger King food is worse there than here. But they can do some things well. You can get a really good fish and chips and also some good indian food. But the key point is that you have to seek the best places out. Like most countries, particularly countries that have a lot of tourists, the average place sucks and is a tourist trap. Of course a random fish and chips place in London will not be great. Just like random restaurants in the USA are not great. But if you do your homework, there are some amazing places.

I hear what you are saying. But the Brits added to it too. I think Tikka Masala is not native to India or the US, it is a Brit thing. But yeah, they have a history of bad food. The French call them Rosbifs, and that is no compliment. It is interesting that the Brits may have gone in for cooking shows even more than us. Gordon Ramsay is a Brit. Jamie Oliver is a Brit.

I loved Two Fat Ladies, but you knew how that show was gonna end with how they cooked. Everything needed more bacon fat. But damn, what they cooked looked good.

Their pastry/baking show is great, they show real talent there, and definitely that's a strength of the country. I think you're right about the cooking shows, though. Ramsay specifically is trying to bring back old British cooking, the stuff they used to do before the war.

My theory is that the British got so used to cooking out of a can or a box because of the rationing (and food shipments from the USA) that they kind of lost their ability to actually cook.

Why do people not understand the universal symbol of flashing bright lights into your rear view?

Why do some semi drivers pull out to pass at the base of a long, slow grade hill?

454 Ghost of Hallelujah, I grew up hearing my teachers speak glowingly of Indians and how they used every part of the animal. Being of American Indian descent, myself, I sort of took a little pride in that.

So, yeah, I'm not really bothered by the idea of eating parts of the animal that aren't normally eaten in modern society.

Pink slime? Doesn't bother me. Rocky Mountain oysters? Pretty good! Haggis? Well, I haven't actually eaten that since it's illegal to import because of the lung meat. But I'll give it a try! I've eaten a "haggis dog" that was served at a local Scottish festival, and really liked it. Basically, it was a hot dog with the spices used in haggis.

461 Ramsay specifically is trying to bring back old British cooking, the stuff they used to do before the war.



My theory is that the British got so used to cooking out of a can or

they kind of lost their ability to actually cook.

472 My poor doggie now looks like she has the mange. She went for a snooze under the corner of one of the Suburbans, that I drove down a rural road which was being seal-coated last night. Fender wells and running board (especially the underside) were coated in oozy black oil, which dripped on the ground. Dog rolled in it. First I noticed, she came for a ride today in the pickup, and got tar marks all over the seat.

I spent two hours with a can of gasoline, a brush, and rags, cleaning oil off the Suburban. I tried a can of brake cleaner and a rag on Pogo; she did not like that one bit. So I got a small pair of scissors, and clipped the worst blobs out of her coat. She was in the truck again, and did not mar the seat, so I guess it worked. But she looks...ragged.

476 I smell a rat on that car story. It seems to me that the guy who bought it from the broker wanted it street legal. But, there was a known problem. Lieske got a favor and kept the theft on the books beyond the 10 year period. So, that Ford guy was hired to show up out of the blue and walk the cousin (who seems pretty clueless) through the motions, eventually losing the case and the car. It was a pretty open and closed case until he appealed and won (and probably shouldn't have based on the wording of the law).

It's obviously an inside job of theft. They took hidden parts and the paperwork. Someone in the car collecting business who had been to the shop knew where to get it all...even the list of previous potential buyers.

The shop up in mass (acting as broker) not checking stolen vehicle reports is the kicker. That NEVER happens unless they know what they will find. Not on a 7 million dollar auto. Cousin Lieske is being taking for a ride (and not in a good way)

And damn hell, that is some GOOD stuff, and there are *never* leftovers, either.

Pity, it's nearly a day-long effort to produce...but *drool*...

Steak and Guinness Pie. I'm gonna buy some Guinness tomorrow. It's kind of like planting food seeds, y'know.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em.

My brilliant move was joining a 10-lawyer firm that caters to the Chinese business community. I do little actual client development (other than keeping current ones happy) but my partners (all Chinese except one) bring in a steady stream of new litigation matters. That was 12 years ago, and I never looked back. I'm the Senior Litigation Partner now and I never lack for stuff to do. Chinese businesses and employers are always getting sued.

Just dumb luck, but it panned out for me. All I can say is, keep plugging and things will fall into place, Insom.

If someone stole your car, and 15 years later you saw a stranger driving it, would you have a legal claim to getting it back?

For most cars, you probably wouldn't even care by then. But two parties with claims to a $7 million piece of rolling French art stolen from a Milwaukee garage care a lot, and a court in Wisconsin could decide who gets the vehicle, now being sequestered at an East Coast business after shady export from and return to the U.S.

The rankings were based on content analysis of notable encyclopedias on the respective fields.

He spent a good number of paragraphs explaining

I don't want to give Tarantino the respect of watching his crappy films. On the rare occasions I've been curious about how Naziism came about, youtube has a bunch of original Hitler speeches. Still doesn't explain our time. The Weimar republic was a time of desperation. We are not in a time of desperation (in the sense they were), but the left *fantasizes* that they are and I think they are in the process of trying to discover a Hitler than can unite them. But they are so bozotic they can't even scrounge around and scrape up something that convincing.

Knew a guy in college that kept getting bottles of wine he bought for dates with his girlfriend while he was at work. He drove a soft top Jeep so no real locks. I don't remember the chemical he used. And it didn't hurt you. But he started putting it in the wine. And if you drank it you would piss dark blue. Solved his theft problem.

For some reason, I was thinking it was more complicated, like Tartars were Mongols but not all Mongols were Tartars.

Per wiki:

Historically, the term "Tatars" was applied to anyone originating from the vast Northern and Central Asian landmass then known as the Tartary, which was dominated by various mostly Turco-Mongol semi-nomadic empires and kingdoms. More recently, however, the term refers more narrowly to people who speak one of the Turkic[9] languages.

What's the worst that could happen if you adopted a positive attitude without fail? The point is, people respond to assertiveness and success, whether real or feigned. People are repelled by self-defeatist attitude. Would you want someone helping you who seemed wishy-washy about the prospect of success? I wouldn't. That's the point. You fake it until you make it. But you best fake it now until you make it, because if you don't, you'll never make it.

751 Well, my old el-cheapo watch died a few days ago, and today, I dug out an even older el-cheapo watch out of a desk drawer, a 1970-something Timex Electric. Stuck a battery in it, didn't run. So I gave it a blast of chlorinated brake cleaner, and left it out in the hot sun all day. Put a battery in it, and after a little shaking, it began to run, and has now run for about 40 minutes. So I stuck the watch band on it, and put it on my arm. Still running. Will be interesting to see if it keeps running overnight.

And speaking of overnight, I had best get into bed to spend overnight there sleeping. Night, Horde.

And I'm saying this as one who'd earned Lifetime Gold status on Continental... which United subsequently "revised" into "earn it again, bub!" status.

Thousand mile thing on the drive/fly equation?

Mine is more International or not.

In the lower 48, I think I'll opt to drive. I can have all my stuff with me, including arms, and I give NO shits as to NY or NJ or MA considerations thereof.

Better to be tried by twelve, than be buried by six, as they say.

Alas, they won't let me fly the Boeing 737, or conn the 140,000 gross ton Royal Caribbean Canoe of the Seas.

I'll cope, in those circumstances.

But I can land a light single plane, and have brought a 70 ft. motoryacht to the dock on more than one occasion.

The basics are understood.

The MASTERY?

Those ATP Pilots and Ships Masters have those ratings for REASONS.

Damn shame shit like the TSA fustercluck mess with all those reasons.

I'm OK once I'm on the plane with competent aircrew.

Just wish there were more competent passengers, TSA and gate staff.

Having said that, the best comment from the Treacher fiasco thread (which started out by Ace innocuously posting about Clint's speech at Mittens nomination) was this one which cracks me up:

"My 81 year old mother called me during the Clint set and was laughing hysterically. I said, "Mom, the guy's a year older than you and look at him! Why don't you get yourself out of your friggin pajamas before noon someday and do something!"

We were poor.

'76, I'm coming up to graduating High School. Mom, who is terminally ill with a consumptive lung disease, scrapes it ALL up, to buy for me a Class Ring, and a graduation present, an entry-level Seiko watch.

The ring, I get. The watch, I get...and a few days later, Mom apologetically begs the watch back. It has busted the budget.

Returned to Robinson's in San Diego, for a much less pricey, 1st generation digital watch in Red LED "press the button" configuration.

Pity, I didn't know AOP then. 'Cause but a couple years later, that watch committed Seppuki while on duty with the USAF.

Nearly concurrent with Mom's succumbing to that terminal illness, and departing this mortal coil.

I've owned a watch since then. Once. Haven't since.

No single trick. Lot's of tricks. I do however, go into every game convinced I can win, if persistent and flexible enough.

One key element is there's eight rows. Try to think in terms of getting four rows of 10 and under and four rows of Kings and under. But you have to flexible about that. The enemy of perfect and all that.

My favorite games are the ones where no free cells are required at all. I probably find one of them every 25 games or so. They are the both the easiest and the toughest.
