The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I understand why people are hurt. I understand what these words mean. I’m sorry. I’m sorry,” he said, adding that he didn’t know any better when he made the jokes back in 2009, 2010.

“We thought it was okay to talk like that, because that’s how we talked to one another. … Now we’re in a space where I’m around people of the LGBTQ community, and I’m now aware of how these words make them feel, and why they say, ‘That shit hurt because of what I’ve been through.’” Kevin Hart


Quote II

I would encourage the Never Trumpers to try to put their country ahead of their egos and try to control their emotional outbursts. Mark Levin


Quote III

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift of God, which is why we call it the present.” Bill Keane

I guess I'm a racist. Since I also enjoy flower gardens I must be very extremely conservative racist.

Yummy Wannabe

Vegan beef tartare is a difficult concept to visualize. It conjures images of a pile of beans, or perhaps a slab of tofu served with some nicely charred crostini. But last night, during a press event at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Impossible Foods showed off its new plant-based ground beef replacement by offering a selection of foods from traditional sliders to the ambitious tartare. Thanks to a change in formula, the new Impossible Burger 2.0 goes beyond simple patties and aims to take on ground beef with every recipe, from lasagna to tacos. The first tastes are very promising.

As anyone who’s ever stepped into a “gentlemen’s club” knows, lap dances can get pretty pricey. But owners of an Illinois strip joint believe the nearly $2 million tax bill they received for lap dance services provided is a bit much.

Court records show that proprietors of Polekatz Gentlemen’s Club, a strip club in Bridgeview, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago, are suing Cook County, alleging its revenue department is illegally demanding $1.7 million for lap dances under its “amusement tax.” That figure includes interest and penalties, according to The Cook County Record.

Never saw this coming. Paris's first naked restaurant closes down.

No nudes is bad news: Paris's first NAKED restaurant closes after 15 months due to lack of customers
-O'naturel opened November 2017 and was billed as Paris's first nudist restaurant
-Mike and Stephane Saada founded eatery despite not being nudists themselves
-But just 15 months later it has been forced to close after failing to attract custom
-Owners thanked everyone who came along for 'sharing exceptional moments'

Life is full of disappointments. Suck it up Buttercup.

On Saturday, Kori Paul Swabey, a 23-year-old from Plymouth, England, stopped by a local Pizza Hut to try out the restaurant’s new vegan-friendly options.

While he was happy with his jackfruit pizza, he asked the waitress if they had any vegan desserts. Swabey then claims the waitress said Pizza Hut’s ice cream station did not contain animal products.

“The woman went away and came back and ensured me that their ice cream factory is vegan,” Swabey told Plymouth Live. “I asked if the toppings are all vegan too and the waitress said yes.”

He later discovered that his sweet treat was not vegan-friendly.

“I ate the ice cream, but the toppings when I checked the bottles clearly stated they contained milk,” Swabey said. “It’s like she just rushed it because it was busy.”


Swabey had just recently become vegan.

Surprise! Gender Studies is not in the Top 5 in demand skills.

The United States is currently experiencing one of the tightest labor markets in history and many say that the country is currently facing a skills gap. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. currently has over 7 million unfilled jobs.

This tight labor market has led many companies to become more open-minded when considering candidates. Companies including Google, Apple, IBM and Bank of America no longer require applicants to have a college degree.

So it looks like the days of "Mind your own business" are gone, long gone.

Nervously, I gave a bounty hunter a phone number. He had offered to geolocate a phone for me, using a shady, overlooked service intended not for the cops, but for private individuals and businesses. Armed with just the number and a few hundred dollars, he said he could find the current location of most phones in the United States.

The bounty hunter sent the number to his own contact, who would track the phone. The contact responded with a screenshot of Google Maps, containing a blue circle indicating the phone’s current location, approximate to a few hundred metres.

An armed robber who is polite, patient and a Genius Award Winner.

An employee of Patricia's said that Phillips came into the store, pointed a gun at her and told her that he would kill her if she didn't open the cash register within 30 seconds, the documents say. The employee told police that Phillips then began counting, "One Mississippi, two Mississippi..." The employee opened the register and handed Phillips the cash inside.

Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day - First Runner Up Award.

In spite of the city’s notorious opposition to civilian handgun ownership, some of the most picture-perfect firearm self-defense stories these days come to us from Chicago. Take for example the time a 63-year-old Chicago man kneecapped an attacker who threatened him with a fake gun. This past New Year’s Eve, a 29-year-old Chicago concealed carrier shot two assailants who jumped out of a car and announced their intent to rob him.

This morning, just before 6:00 a.m., another young licensed concealed carrier defended herself from a would-be robber. The unidentified woman, age 25, was standing at a bus stop with her legally carried handgun accessibly concealed.

It is never too late to do the right thing. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Germany on Tuesday returned a painting looted by the Nazis to the heirs of French Jewish politician and resistance leader Georges Mandel.The portrait of a seated woman by 19th century French painter Thomas Couture had been on display in a spectacular collection hoarded by Cornelius Gurlitt, the son of a Nazi-era art dealer.

German Culture Minister Monika Gruetters presented the work to family members of Mandel, executed by French fascists near Paris in 1944, in a ceremony at the Martin Gropius Bau museum in Berlin.

34 I will make a confession: I, for the most part do not like bacon on my burgers. Especially good ones.

I love Bacon.

I love hamburgers.

However, I have always found, on a really good hamburger/cheeseburger, that bacon kind of messes with the flavor. Throws things off a bit. It is like your mind is going: damn this is a savory treat, and then Bacon comes in, slapping it's shit down on your desk and demanding attention.

We're set to get another dog on Sunday. Carmen, who is almost 11, is a house dog and since her sister Aida died we've had a couple of her daughters to keep her company, but they're too rambunctious for her to put up with.

A breeder in the state has dementia and can no longer take care for her dogs. Our national rescue organization has stepped in to find foster homes for them. We volunteered to give an older one a forever home as well as a house companion for Carmen. We'll take Carmencita along to see whether they'll get along.

86 We're set to get another dog on Sunday. Carmen, who is almost 11, is a house dog and since her sister Aida died we've had a couple of her daughters to keep her company, but they're too rambunctious for her to put up with.

A breeder in the state has dementia and can no longer take care for her dogs. Our national rescue organization has stepped in to find foster homes for them. We volunteered to give an older one a forever home as well as a house companion for Carmen. We'll take Carmencita along to see whether they'll get along.

From a recent book thread, re: Neal Stephenson writing the entirety of the Baroque Cycle trilogy by hand, with pen and ink:

"The manuscript of The Baroque Cycle was written by hand on 100% cotton paper using three different fountain pens: a Waterman Gentleman, a Rotring, and a Jorg Hysek. It was then transcribed, edited, formatted and printed using emacs and TeX. When it was totally finished, the TeX version of of the ms. was converted to Quark XPress format using an emacs LISP program written by the author."

All 17,000 pages of the final draft are on display at the Museum of Science Fiction in Seattle.

When I was in HS I cut some quills down to pen nibs, it was very instructive as to why we write cursive the way we do.
A ball-point is like using a hard crayon, you have to put pressure right down on the tip, and you have to do it from above.

A steel nib requires a softer touch, and you have to come in from the side, and hold the nib at just the right angle, depending on the type of nib. You have to glide it and you have to be very aware of how yo are doing your strokes to keep from blotting or picking up paper fibers in the nib.

Dad learned to write with a dip pen and he was kind of excited when I told him that.

My GF also learned to write with a dip pen, and she said her hardest thing to learn was to use just the right amount of pressure to glide the pen on the paper.

You and your friends will reminisce about your long gone mothers, and laugh at their foibles or brag about how great their lasagna or latkes or kolache tasted and how yours just isn't the same.

I'm not kidding. One guy had called in to the talk show to complain because he had to pay some kind of tax or fee because he had an awning over his shop's doorway.

Kobold Press was even more cringe but they did try to do their Africa Southlands justice. Or so I daresay myself as an Algerian passerby.

But for the most part, role-playing authors drew up original maps, even if they didn't put original nations on them. Dragonlance, Greyhawk, Blackmoor, Krynn and even Faerun didn't look like Generic Eurasia / North-Africa. It took Paizo's Golarion to do that.

He watches a bunch of terminally stupid YouTube videos, takes a shower, watches more tv, and then goes to bed. Every now and again, I'll go get something. The only thing I can drag him out of the house for is tacos. The ones at our favorite place have to be eaten right away. By the time I get them home, they are lukewarm and blah.

Big Macs would be re-named iMacs, would cost $25, and would be shipped here from China. On the way, they would need to be upgraded twice, at an additional cost of $25. But you would look super-cool eating one, or even just carrying around the empty box.

Maybe you had a bad experience, but our local Five Guys is very good. The toppings are fresh, the fries are good (not the best, but not the worst either), the service is excellent, and everything is made right in front of you so you don't have to wonder what happened to it behind the scenes.

389 Replaced the left rear door on the F150 today, with a straight, rust-free door bought at an auto wrecking yard in south Phoenix. Still have to do the wiring and the inner skin, but the door is on the hinges, and the latch works, and the glass is in it.

Funny thing: the old door had a bit of a bind, because the tweak to the rear body tightened up the opening a bit (a previous owner hit a snow bank or something, messing up both left doors and the back cab corner).

And the new door had the exact same degree of bind in it, which speaks pretty well of Ford's manufacturing tolerances in body stampings. I used a hammer and block of wood to knock the door frame back a bit, and now the new door opens and closes easily.

When I get the front door on, that will leave me with a 3" by 12" strip of rear cab corner on which to do body work.

And the new doors are both painted silver, so match the body; no repaint needed.

This will add hugely to the resale value of this truck.

'fresh oil' usually means that they hadn't put a sacrificial batch of old fries through the frier.

Yeah, they suck. Too dry, too skinny, too tasteless. Five Guys fries are the best I have had from any of the big chains: chipped on site from fresh potatoes, never frozen, and cooked in peanut oil. I'd prefer lard, but peanut oil is OK. Outside of the fry is browned, but the inside has the taste and texture of a baked potato.

I was born in Ohio, and the first hamburgers I ate were Frisch's Big Boy.

I drove through there in 1986 and made a point of stopping at one. It was just as good as I remembered.

That was 30 years ago, so I don't know what they're like today.

435 The best thing about Five Guys is the free peanuts. With the purchase of a small drink you can easily take home enough free peanuts to last an entire week. The employees will even give you a bag for them, if you ask.

436 Yeah, they suck. Too dry, too skinny, too tasteless.
Five Guys fries are the best I have had from any of the big chains:
chipped on site from fresh potatoes, never frozen, and cooked in peanut
oil. I'd prefer lard, but peanut oil is OK. Outside of the fry is
browned, but the inside has the taste and texture of a baked potato.


Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at January 09, 2019 11:47 PM (nPGq2)
No doubt Five Guys fries are fresher. I guess I am just used to the over -manipulated, crispy fast food fry style. A lot of these more rustic fries seem to me to be limp potato wedges more than fries. They are just very different products.

444 Any fries, no matter who cooks them, are good for about 10 minutes out of the fryer, maximum.


The PC food police forced them to remove the beef tallow fat to cook them from every chain, as far as I can tell.


I have given up on fries and no longer eat them, because they fatten me up like a steer a couple weeks before slaughter.

OK, maybe 3 or 4 times a year. It was tough to ween off of them completely.

I have heard that that is true a few places abroad. That is just wrong. Those fried pies were great. Why would a place choose to replace a better product with one that is obviously worse and will not sell as well? I know , they got bullied by the food police. I think I remember there were lawsuits over the hot filling too about the same time they started suing the place for selling, gasp, hot coffee.

Posted by: Quint at January 10, 2019 12:05 AM (n13/j)

468 Beef tallow was used as a flavoring mixed with cottonseed oil at McDonald's from what I gather, not as a major source of frying oil. It was replaced by "natural "beef flavoring".

Posted by: yankeefifth at January 10, 2019 12:06 AM (MTjB1)

471 Yep. Cold oil. The fries dripped oil.

I worked at a couple of fast food joints years back. Every time we changed the oil, we did one at a time during a slow time just so we could let the new oil get hot enough. Then we'd do the second fryer and let the oil get hot enough.

From what I understand, changing the oil is different these days. Instead of physically removing the fryers pans and baskets, dumping the hot, dirty oil into the oil barrel, then scrubbing the pans by hand before replacing them in the fryer and filling them with fresh oil, it's automatic. You push a button, the old oil drains out, then the pan fills itself with new oil. I suspect that Smashburger had initiated the cycle during a busy time and started using it too soon.

have you tried their new quarter pounder?

Posted by: yankeefifth at January 09, 2019 11:35 PM (MTjB1)


Yes, I have. About six times a year I am trapped, starving, in a location that only has a McDonald's. I have had the quarter pounder, the Big Mac, and a couple of their breakfast offerings. Everything has been uniformly awful, and looked like someone had sat on it before they handed it to me through the window. Their fries and hash browns are soggy, and even their coffee has gotten worse. Sometimes, just for fun, they give me something other than what I ordered, which of course I don't find out until I am five miles down the road.

A quarter pounder, by the way, has nothing but ketchup, mustard, and two tiny pieces of onion on it. That is like something out of the 1950's, and scarcely edible. I won't even order one (minus the condiments, of course) to feed to one of my dogs...for that treat we make the longer trip to Burger King and I buy their basic cheeseburger, plain. Which doesn't look like it has been used for sitting practice.

Give me Five Guys with fresh toppings, two better burger patties, and excellent service any day of the week. As a backup, I'll go to Burger King. But McDonald's has only been a last resort under extreme time pressure, and now to avoid them I'm starting to pack my own PB&J sandwiches.

So far, about a half dozen people have said they are interested so far. Best part of the PSMoMe is that you don't even have to live in the Puget Sound area! Winston, I'm looking at you.

A few of us are going to meet soon to drink, tell tall stories, drink, decide details on our MoMe, drink, and hopefully someone will keep notes.

Kroc, as he was a client of Dad's with life insurance. Cost in the mid

the shake machine salesman got started. Dad thought nobody would buy
$.15 hamburgers and $.20 cheeseburgers. Sigh..........

Chik-fil-A is bit different. The "franchise" is about 10 to 12K. But you don't own the restaurant, just the right to run it.

Also, you have to go through a qualification process and they prefer people with experience running a restaurant or other business where you have to deal with scheduling and payroll.

I had a long phone call tonight while broadcast TV was running in the background. I hung up, and the show was on, but I am paying attention this time.

It's worse than bad. This thing is like radio-transmitted surprise anal. I wish I could blank it from my memory. It's amazingly crass trash, and coming from a degenerate like me, that's saying something.

To this day I am grateful that I didn't invest in a Quizno's franchise. The sandwiches were better quality than Subway, but the corporate structure turned out to be terrible and I think they're almost all gone now.

My go-to outlet for sub-style sandwiches these days is Jersey Mike's. Four times as far away as the Subway, but eight times as good. Do the math. Uh, subtract two, carry the one...is this base eight or base ten? Anyway, the #13, Mike's Way, is amazing. Maybe I should look into a franchise and put it closer to my house...

A lot of hype there. It has an 88 watt-hour internal battery. At a nominal 12 volts, that's about 8 amp-hours.They claim it will deliver peak current of 4000 amps. At that current level, the battery would have enough jam to put out for a whole 7 seconds.

But those cables and clamps would never sustain a current of 4000 amps, anyway. Nor do you need that much; 400 amps should crank any vehicle that runs a 12 volt system. And you might get a minute total at that draw rate.

And they claim that most cars will jump start in 3 seconds? Well, if the only thing wrong is a dead battery because the lights were left on, or the alternator died, etc. A car with a battery frozen in -30 weather is going to need a lot more cranking.
FWIW, I have seen and used booster packs, and they seem to get the job done if "dead battery" is the only fault involved. But so will booster cables. I own several sets of booster cables; I don't own any booster packs, and have no real desire to get one.

A legal malpractice firm. It is a thing. When my Mom passed, our attorney was notified shortly after that my long deceased Dad's part of the family owned 20% of a farm the family wanted to sell. Worth about $50k total to our side of the family.

Estate lawyer decided, on his own, to bill the estate of my Mom for a 3 day weekend he spent "investigating" a place in upper Michigan. Billed for every minute he even thought about it through his 56 hour@ $300/hour weekend.

One threat from me to follow through on this got the scumbag to drop it down to 20 hours, which was twice as much as he deserved.

Yes, discretionary spending is A Thing, but Trump has allocated the money to rebuilding our Military.

He wouldn't go the Emergency route if there were any other way.

He has found loopholes, workarounds, and ways to build and buy things that no one else would think he could in the Private Sector.

If you think he hasn't had people on the case, you don't understand Donald J. Trump.

607 saw a typical VA quack last week (rheumatology)

wasn't interested in my fucked up hand (burned on Planet Irwin, '83) which has been acting up, but whose problems the VA has decreed are NOT service related.

wanted to talk about my knees, *after* she tried to tell me my evaluations as to the "quality" my my care were just "opinions", where upon i told her "no, they are my professional evaluation, based upon over two decades as a health care professional, a through knowledge of industry standards, guidelines and the applicable laws and JC standards ..."

which one's bad?
they both are.
which one is worse?
this week? the right one.
i'm putting you in for an MRI.
why not file a referral to soot both?
they can't do both at the same time.
i figured as much, but they could shoot one, then the other.
if you think you are going to guide my care of you, you are mistaken.
(look you miserable scrunt: what you inflicted on me wasn't care. #HTH!)

she's going to get a rocket, likely from more than one direction, shortly for that bullshit, but i found something out the next day, when i wound up talking to a rando lower level VA staffer.|

apparently, one reason they don't want to do them both at the same time (besides not giving a shit about our time or us) is that the VA *bills* the govt for care. (her words) may be internal bookkeeping, or may go to Treasury.

either way, they are using the same procedures private insurance companies use. if they shoot both knees on the same day, they only get to bill for one procedure, not two.

it's beyond stupid.

The next generation is more conservative than anyone has seen since the Reagan administration.

The HR departments in large corporations are something to be reckoned with, however. The individuals that have to deal with them are victims of The Long March.

Companies watch the Bottom-Line like hawks and they are getting the "Get Woke, Go Broke" blowback that they deserve.

it gets better: these days, everything is digital: x-rays, you name it, so the cost of each shot is infinitesimal, other than the labor cost of the actual operator directing the machine, and the radiologist interpreting the results.

the machines are a sunk cost, necessary for the VA to perform it's mission. maintenance costs, etc, are also there, but it's necessary overhead for a service they can either provide internally, at minimal cost, or pay for from an outside source.

to say we "lose money" if they don't two different procedures on differnt days is bureaucratic BS.

i suspect they want to pad their totals, so they can support request for MOAR staff, bigger budgets, etc.

that's likely also the reason that, when i refill my meds, i get at least 3 packages, when they would all fit into one.

677 Re. MH's quote 1.

I posted this the other day.
I will try to ad some life here by being topical.
So, this Kevin Hart business. I don't associate myself with his past
comments, nor do I know them in detail. But I did respect the guy for
standing up against the daily internet mob. I thought he was out of the
Oscars and I even considered seeing his latest film as a show of
support. Not for his opinions, but for standing up for himself. At some
point someone has to say enough.

Now it looks like they are
putting him through the wringer of apology and contrition which will end
in his hosting the Oscars after all. I could be wrong about this, but
it looks to be heading that way. In the end, the angriest and loudest
get their way, just ask pretty much any corporation that got on the
wrong side of the internet mob.


Posted by: Quint at January 08, 2019 05:32 AM (n13/j)
After looking into it further, I think his apology was warranted. His views were odd and even joking about violence in this context was really weird imo. I am glad my parents were not obsessed with such things. Also, I really don't care who hosts the Oscars, that shit show lost all meaning to me at least a decade ago. I think they should bring back Billy Crystal so that they at least don't embarrass themselves further.
My prediction was wrong, Hart will not be hosting. He even stood up to Michael Strahan yesterday while being pestered over and over. No way he backs down from that. But again, I think the original apology was correct, if not required.
Hart seems affable enough and certainly a lot of people love his comedy. I realized by looking into this, that I have had basically no exposure to his comedy. No big deal there, different strokes for different folks. But there are far more egregious examples of the right think gestapo coming down on regular people. For me, Kevin Hart is not the right hill to die on. If Hollyweird wants to take him on, that is wrong in many ways. But they are his people, he is one of them.

Heh, yeah. Republicans seem to bat about .500 when it comes to SC justices. I don't follow the court closely, but Roberts doesn't stand out as some great originalist to me. Someone recently advocated Thomas retiring. I am not sure about the context but my initial reaction was "wth?" Are not Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and hopefully Kavanaugh the only conserves we have? And really, only Alito and Thomas have been proven over time. That is two.

My buddies would laugh when I'd run a string of expletive-filled euphemisms and metaphors at the poor "kid", but that got old, real quick.

When my conscience finally took over, I was able to make The Argument look silly, instead of the uninitiated individual.

...having a conscience sucks, sometimes. ...lol.

Beside, I'm really not that bright so I rely on a Solid State grasp of constitutional history, tone and cadence and the English language to gather the crowd.

Did I mention that I worked as an emcee for Bare as You Dare Competitions?

Posted by: Gref at January 10, 2019 06:44 AM (AMIL/)
I am no expert on this at all, and don't claim to be one. But from what I have heard much of the recycing ethos is a scam. People like us are conditioned to wash and clean bottles etc and put them in the recycling bin. But so much of recycling is overstated and the companies involved in it are all for profit in the end. My point is when we take all the time to make sure a bottle is sparkling clean, all we are doing it increasing the profit for a company that could clean them themselves. We are doing half their labor, and have been conditioned to do it "for the earth".
I do this as well so I am not standing apart here. But it is funny how we have been conditioned to do these things without really thinking it through. Would you work for free for other companies? And is glass recycling any better than simply reusing bottles like they do in Mexico and used to do here? Remember getting change for bottle deposits?

Garbage streams out the back door into the trash.

The vegan burger idea just baffles me. If you don't want to eat meat, why try to pretend that's what you're doing? I had an aunt who had the only sane reason for being a vegetarian I've ever encountered: she just didn't like it. My father says that even as a child she'd get in trouble over this, just as I did over lima beans.

OK, I get that. Don't see how it could be, but hell, one of my grandmothers didn't like chocolate. That's how people are. We have different tastes.

Note also that she didn't lecture, was willing to cook it for others, and did like fish and dairy. Even liked to use goose or duck fat to cook. Just wouldn't eat meat.

But these jerks just show there's something wrong wtih them.

This is why they wanted negotiate in private with Trump. Schumer and Pelosi are good at behind the scenes arm-twisting, threatening, lying - whatever it is that has gotten them this far in DC.

They're not used to selling their ideas, not really. They have canned talking point, euphemisms, and slurs about anyone who disagrees, but they've stopped even trying to sell their ideas - just want to force them.

Yeah, I'm reading more and more articles about cities that cannot
make any money on recycling, so, even though they still separately
collect recyclables (to virtue signal to the citizens), the recyclables
trucks take their stuff direct to the landfills.




Posted by: Gref at January 10, 2019 06:58 AM (AMIL/)

One of the few stocks I own is Waste Management. It seems like a good business. Of course they have to get the right prices/incentives from cities, but garbage is not going away. Yet I read something recently from a self described liberal who called this recycling thing out. What he hated most was the strident neighbors who enforced complicity by shaming. He learned that this whole thing is for profit and the companies factor in our free labor when setting their price.
*as I have said before, I don't recommend any stocks period. As far as I know, WM will collapse tomorrow.

rebuttals countless times in my life but never did it take more than one
of those liars to give it. I didn't watch as I was not about to sit
there and have lies spewed at me by those two grifters but before I
changed channels I did note that the two of them standing behind that
podium (clearly made for one) was just...comical.

No worries, it happens from time to time. I liked the new True Grit too. Just last week I defended the new 3:10 to Yuma. The Movie was already marginal but the source material of course was great. Then a day later I had to deal with Chrisitan Bale basically calling Dick Cheney the devil lol. So I was on even shakier ground. I try not to mix politics with theater but that was pretty much the final straw, screw Christian Bale.

Oh yes, the great born again rehymenated virgin squeal of the Progressives. Everyone must be shamed, taxed, called out, nudged, punched, criminalized, policed, and catastrophied into submission to some unproven, illogical fad.

I guess I come from a time that if everyone is doing it, then I might go do something else. This Progressive Prudishness is just leftist control of deeds and thoughts now presented as the new morality. Most of the asshole never even tried the old morality and now are trying to create a new morality. And it appears the new morality somehow means that I am responsible for 7 Billion dumb, poor, diseased, uneducated, illiterate citizen if the rock 93 millions miles from the closet star.

I do not and will not tell anyone what the can do with their genitalia (mine is another story!). Nor will I praise, approve, commend, or reward you for how you get your rocks off. I do not care. You cannot make me care.

The new Morality supposes that I must be willing to give up income, health, wealth, and even life to do what is right for people (and even countries) that I could NOT care less about.

I have first cousins I have not talked to in 25 years, why the hell would I let some progressive talk to me in a way that I could be blamed or shamed?
