The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"The Speaker, while she controls the House, doesn't control her own party. And there is a real rush to impeachment here in the House. We're seeing that with [Judiciary Committee chairman] Jerry Nadler, we're seeing it with the investigative committees, we're seeing it in the Ways and Means Committee." Rep. Kevin Brady is the ranking Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee.


Quote II

“When I see Mexican flags waved at pro-immigration demonstrations, I sometimes feel a flush of patriotic resentment. When I’m forced to use a translator to communicate with the guy fixing my car, I feel a certain frustration.” Guess Who?

(If you don't read the article answer below the final evening notices)


Quote III
Directed to Bill Maher and all other smug assholes like him.

"Envy" you, Bill? Not on your life. Now admittedly we're pissed off at you, for sure. But that's only because you caged urban rats absolutely refuse to do the one and only thing we really, really want from you: leave us alone. Stop nagging us, stop telling us how bad we suck, stop psychoanalyzing us, and above all else: stop trying to tell us how we must live our lives via your authoritarian Left-wing politics. We're fine with our shallow, dismal, plodding, unenlightened existence. We mightily wish you were fulfilled and content enough with yours to lay off lecturing us every chance you get, through your trashy, degrading movies and TV shows as well as other ways.Mike Hendrix


Quote IV

“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes exhausts and murders itself. There never was a Democracy yet, that did not commit suicide.”President John Adams


Quote V

Please keep in mind that every political solution in the history of this country has made you less free and not more free. That is a feature and not a bug. Bill Buppert

No problem at the border The National Guard was just on a lengthy paid vacation.

National Guard troops helped with the arrest of 23,034 illegal immigrants and the seizure of more than 35,000 pounds of drugs in the roughly six months they were deployed to the border in fiscal 2018, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.

The more than 23,000 people arrested were “deportable” noncitizens, DHS said. The operation, dubbed “Guardian Support,” also led federal law enforcement to more than 6,100 people who were later turned back, the data said.

Well, well, well; he did it again. Representative Doug Collins has released the transcript of testimony from former FBI Lawyer Lisa Page. [SEE HERE] The transcript is from two days of congressional testimony July 13th and July 16th, 2018. Each day is a separate transcript: Day One Transcript

Beto Robert O'Rourke is a looser and a bottom feeding scum sucking weasel hypocrite.

O'Rourke supports radical environmentalist policies such as the Green New Deal, but after taking a "No Fossil Fuel Money" pledge, he ended up taking hundreds of thousands in contributions from the oil and gas industry. The $476,325 O'Rourke raised from the industry made him the second-biggest recipient of its money all cycle, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

When a sovereign nation tells you to knock it off. Perhaps you should listen and take it to heart.

Argentina's coast guard says it sank a Chinese fishing vessel that was fishing in a restricted area off the South American country's coast.

The Argentine Naval Prefecture chased and eventually sank the Lu Yan Yuan Yu 010 vessel after detecting it illegally fishing within the country's exclusive economic zone, officials said Tuesday.
First, according to a statement from the Argentine coast guard, warning shots were fired. The Chinese vessel, Argentine authorities said, responded by turning off its lights and deliberately trying to crash.

There is also a video at the link.

When life hands you lemons make lemonade. When life hands you snow make Ford Mustangs.

Jason Blundell and his two teenage kids, Shelby and Spencer, spent a snowy Saturday in Chadron, Nebraska, recreating their family's 1967 Ford Mustang GTA, according to the Scottsbluff Star-Herald. The Mustang stayed in the garage, of course, but its snow-replica was parked proudly out on the curb.

The "Snow Pony" took five hours to build and blew up from there, attracting admirers from across the world thanks to a family friend who added to the display. Nebraska State Patrol Sgt. Mick Downing, who attends the Blundells' church, filmed himself writing a fake tow notice for the obvious snow-car and posted it on the patrol's social media pages.

The ONT seems to be overly serious tonight, how about another humorous meme?

Not now Honey, I have a headache. No, I really have a headache!

A woman suffered a stroke while receiving oral sex from her lover.

The 44-year-old, from west London, was "nearing orgasm " when she passed out in the bedroom.


She was rushed to hospital where doctors found a blood vessel had burst inside her skull.

Medics at West Middlesex University Hospital in Isleworth, west London, said the patient was unconscious for three minutes after first suffering a headache during oral sex.

Just in case the national divorce doesn't go well, we might want to see if we could become Hungarians.

In an interview for a book published last week, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban stressed that Hungary has been a part of Europe for 1,000 years and that its critics in the European Union are upset because Hungary's constitution states that the country has "Christian roots," that it rejects "multiculturalism," that every child has "a right to a mother and a father," and that the country has a right to "defend its borders," especially against the threat of Islam.


I'm Christian, have some European blood in the system, I can put up with winter and I like goulash. The move might not be so bad.

The ONT Musical Interlude


On this day 13 Mar 2006
The Sex Pistols refused to attend their own induction into the US Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio. Blondie, Herb Alpert and Black Sabbath were all inducted but the Pistols posted a handwritten note on their website, calling the institution 'urine in wine', adding 'We're not your monkeys, we're not coming. You're not paying attention'. via thisdayinmusic.com

He has written or co-written over 500 songs for himself and others including two songs recorded by The Monkees.

Starting a tab at a watering hole isn't the worst thing in the world. Unless you are a Genius Award Winner.

TEMPE, AZ — A man and woman broke into the "Blasted Barley," a Tempe bar, and drank $89 worth of alcohol.

Tempe police report that on March 4, they responded to an alarm at Blasted Barley near 5th Street and Mill Avenue.

Police say they could see a man inside placing items near the front door. The man, later identified as 23-year-old Joseph Adams, refused to come out of the building and a police dog was sent it to get him out.

Once in awhile Social Media is positive. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Over the weekend, Billy’s dad had the grand opening of a donut shop in Missouri City, Texas. However, when no one showed up, his son Billy (who the donut shop is named after) tweeted that his dad was ‘sad.’

Well, the power of the internet took over! The tweet went viral with over 300,000 retweets, and before they knew it the donut shop had customers pouring in!

Please keep in mind that every political solution in the history of this
country has made you less free and not more free. That is a feature and
not a bug.


People should know that under our form of government, each new law reduces our freedom. The very last thing we should want is a busy Congress cranking out law after law. After a few decades we'll have very little freedom left.

And a corollary of sorts: If laws were written clearly, we wouldn't need a judiciary to decipher their meaning. One law should only address one illegality in plain English. We should demand that Congress stop writing vague laws.

When I went back to my car which was about 2 miles away I had lost my keys. I went back to the entrance of the event to ask where I could find a lost-and-found, (not ever figuring that I'd find them), and they asked me what I lost and I said my car keys. They asked me what kind and unbelievably they had my keys. We are talking about a horse event with probably 1000 acres of grass. Joyce found them."

102 Regarding the Pay for College Scam - I'm not surprised. It's affirmative action for Caucasians.


Yeah, but why are these Federal Crimes? I know, I know, the nefarious deeds were implemented across state lines and by using the US Mail. But is scamming colleges as done here something that should be criminal in the US Code? I see this as another example of laws that were made to go after bootleggers and con artists scamming little old ladies, being used as a Federal prosecutor wishes. In this case, against rich people trying to get their dumb kids into top-tier colleges.

I'm not saying the alleged crap is OK. However, it seems to me that the colleges could handle this crap through civil suits or through any applicable state laws. I believe we have enough dangerous lawbreakers to keep Federal prosecutors and the FBI busy, without investigating this sort of crap.

YMMV.

168 A guy gets brought into the emergency room with concussion, and all his
teeth knocked out.

When they asked him what happened, he said, "Well, I was playing golf
with the wife when she chipped her ball into a cow field.
We went over to find it, and suddenly I noticed one of the nearby cows
had the same brand of golf ball as we use, protruding from its rear end.



The last thing I remember is lifting up the cow's tail, pointing, and
shouting over to my wife, 'Hey Honey, this looks like yours '"

In the context of their perfidy and malfeasance and all the nasty shit they are allowing to happen or directly perpetrating, I understand the "WTF are they doing with this penny-ante shit while there's a coup going on?!" but this is also perhaps a rare example of them doing their damn jobs.

243 Should Trump succeed in eliminating the bi-annual time changes, we'll have:

B.C. = Before Christ

A.D. = anno Domini

T.T. = Trump Time


Just start to use the appellation as a standard thing, till it's in overwhelming common use.

Why?

Why NOT! It's sure to agonize our enemies, so it is therefore a Good and Bountiful thing!

Another thing that Trump could do, is to establish tightly written, narrowly focused rules, as to when a "pre-dawn, no knock" raid is permitted.

And then extend those rules to the local level by way of funding cutoffs, if compliance fails.

Yes, there are times when such raids are necessary, I get that.

But not for shit like Manafort and the Kollidge Kriminalz.

Trump could start de-fanging myriad Federal Agencies, and that'd be just that much more added to the Trumpian Legacy.

Which is already, going to be Yuge.

It is ironic that little, plucky AMC saved Chrysler. They had the Grand Cherokee - also known as an "automotive printing press" - nearly ready to go.

If you look up thread, I called it as the Praying Monk (just behind the Saguaro) on the head of Camelback Mountain, as seen from Paradise Valley. I grew up on the exact opposite side of that mountain, have hiked to the top several times.

The irrational action possibility during a no-notice arrest raid is their rationale for going in with guns drawn. Why they need to do a no-notice home arrest of a white collar-crime suspect is to me the first questionable decision in their decision-path.

543 I am currently reading a new biography of Churchill that has lots of new material.

For those of us who remember him as an older fellow from newsreels or as and elderly statesman from our own youth, it is quite a surprise to know how much of an athlete he was.

While in India, he scored 3 of 4 goals in the All-India Polo Championship while riding with a dislocated shoulder.

That same injured shoulder probably saved his live later while in battle as a cavalry officer in the Sudan. He left the traditional cavalry saber behind and armed himself with a pistol instead and used it to great advantage.

The biographer's name is Roberts and though it is a lengthy book it is a good read and I highly recommend it.

580 While in India, he scored 3 of 4 goals in the All-India Polo Championship while riding with a dislocated shoulder.
------

It's a long story, I'll make it short. Two guys broke into the house of a fellow I know. The grabbed his son out of his bed, and marched him to his father's bedroom with a knife at his throat.

They asked the son if his father had a gun. The son answered "Yes". They banged on his father's bedroom door, and had the son explain that they were holding him at knife point, and to throw out his gun.

Harry jerked the door open and shot both of them dead.

Harry was a well-known sportsman in the county, and an excellent shot. When the press spoke to the sheriff about the case, the sheriff said, "I could think of a hundred houses I would break into before Harry's".

When the press asked Harry about what he credited his quick response to, he replied that credited it to his experience playing polo as a young army officer.

I have more Harry stories. He was one hell of guy. As an aside, the two guys that broke into his house? Marines.

617 The Comet problem was indeed, the windows.

Specifically, the shape thereof.

Square "holes" in the aluminum skin. Lots of stress....LOTS of STRESS, in the pressurization, de-pressurization cycles of flight to altitude, descent to landing, lather, rinse, repeat.

What engineers call "stress risers" form at the corners, the right-angle of the windows, and propagate through the aluminum skin, until *enough* cycles occur, and those cracks fail.

Suddenly, and catastrophically, fail.

The fuselage blows apart at 30,000 ft and 500 mph, and not much more than aluminum confetti flutters to the ground.

And now you know why all your airliner windows have rounded corners.

I can go on about Stress Risers as regards drilled holes, raised bushings and other mechanical artifacts, but I'll eschew the arcane till me n' AoP can sit down and bullshit it all out over drinks.

Hello Rhomboid-


The corruption is top down. The richest man in Hungary is probably a former gas fitter, then mayor of the small village Orban hails from. He is generally considered to be the straw man for Orban, and he owns....anything in Hungary he wants to.

The Orban government is not a free market one-they have nationalized companies as wanted. The Orban government also seized/nationalized all private retirement accounts.

I would never do any business there. Eat, drink, enjoy-yes. Plan to be there in a couple of months (when it's lake weather).

659 The DeHaviland Comet was the first commercial jet airliner, but had a series of catastrophic breakups in midair. Some of you might be more knowledgeable than I, but I recall it was because of the stresses of angular windows.

It killed the lead in commercial jet production that the British held.

Posted by: Jinx the Cat at March 14, 2019 12:20 AM (FTlwv)


There was a Jimmy Stewart movie, 'No Highway In The Sky', where he played an aeronautical engineer and the plane in the movie with catastrophic failure due to metal fatigue thanks to square windows was called the 'Reindeer'. The movie came out in 1951 while the de Havilland Comet failures happened in 1954; after looking it up, the novel of the same title came out in 1948.

The Reindeer/Comet thing is kind of eerie.

660 "102
Regarding the Pay for College Scam - I'm not surprised. It's affirmative action for Caucasians."

"Yeah, but why are these Federal Crimes?"

Two reasons mainly. First, the admissions are to schools that receive Federal funding. Technically, the schools are supposed to obey the rules as much as we Deplorables, so it was fraud.

Second, the money was funneled through what was supposed to be a charitable foundation run by the organizer of it, and the foundation paid for the fraudulent admissions/tests/athletic frauds, with the organizer pocketing the profits. Those who paid the bribes took charitable deductions on the income taxes for their bribes.

After we came out of the church, we stood talking for some time together of Bishop Berkeley's ingenious sophistry to prove the nonexistence of matter, and that every thing in the universe is merely ideal. I observed, that though we are satisfied his doctrine is not true, it is impossible to refute it. I never shall forget the alacrity with which Johnson answered, striking his foot with mighty force against a large stone, till he rebounded from it -- "I refute it thus." -

In my book, this makes you a local Aviation Celebrity.

Boeing fking 377! Strat O fkn Cruiser!

*inserts program for Wyane's World "not worthy" sequence*

*sets to cycle indefinitely*


And here I am, thinking I was hot shit getting to fly the pattern in a Mooney at the Kerrville factory.

At which I sucked, and the Pilot had to take over.

Did you know that a Mooney 231 is a very slick airframe, and doesn't like to slow-down much, at all?

Pilot says "75 knots over the fence"....and I can't do enough skidding and "S-turn" -ing to get it down under 90 knots at the fence.

Humbling. And instructive.

There is a reason a Private License has a "complex" aircraft rating for faster, retractable gear planes.

And while we might tell "pilot" jokes about "pilots" being as bad as Crossfit n' Vegan types about how quickly they'll tell you what they do...

I give the Pilots a pass.

Those ratings come with a lot of practice, perseverance, perspiration and price.

And by time a pilot earns that ATC and type rating on the Airliner of your Choice... they've pretty much earned a PhD in flight operations.

Professional flying might start with a tech-school, but that's only kindergarten.

The rest is deadly serious, and they know it.

The Boeing 737 Max crashes?

Not pilot errors. Flight Control Software failures. Bank on it.

There are good videos taken from the belowdecks areas of large freighter ships when sailing on VERY stormy seas.

Filmed from the stern, looking towards the bow, the bend and twist of the hull would do well as a teenage girl dancing to her favorite groove.

By time they retire those ocean going ships at about 25 years in service, they really and truly are worn the hell out.

It's the coastal tramp ships that have the ridiculously long lives at sea.

Much as a DC-3 lives on to fly in commercial service, even today.

I remember that article.

The Porsche ran from Kerrville to Ft. Stockton.

The Mooney took off from Kerrville, flew South-ish to Bourne, did a 180 to the NW and set course for Ft. Stockton.

When the Mooney approached where the Porsche was staged, the car accelerated, and they both headed North at about the same time, firewalled.

As I recall, the airplane won the race rather easily.

But the Porsche acquitted itself well, doing combat with Fox bodied Mustang 5.0s of the Texas DPS.

From recall. The narration from the spotter/cop-watch/navigator in the Porsche right seat, were the comedy highlights of the entire enterprise.

Pilots came back threatening courts martial - but it all worked out.


Probably unique in modern military history - the US using bypassed Jap-held islands for live-fire training for new squadrons/personnel. Sort of our own, but enemy-held, training range, with *real* combat training.

733 You ask, what is our aim?

I can answer in one word: It is victory, victory at all costs, victory in spite of all sleepiness or Valu-Rite, victory, however long and hard the thread may be; for without victory, there is no survival. Let that be realised; no survival for the Place of Ace, no survival for all that the Hordish Empire has stood for, no survival for the urge and impulse of the pun, that Moronkind will move forward towards its goal. But we take up our task with buoyancy and hope. I feel sure that our wee hour commentations will not be suffered to fail among 'rons nor 'ettes. At this time I feel entitled to claim the aid of all, and I say, “come then, let us comment together with our united strength.” For as dark as this night may seem, as all will agree, there will be Breakfast, and Coffee, in Skip's own good time.

I had to do a little fire ant control operation today for Her Grace. It's trying to get Spring like and getting warm sometimes. We had two fireant incursions into the kitchen. This is Miley's first encounter with the beasts.

So, I decided to make some attempt to Barney Fife it, and nip it in the bud. I put some broadcast bait out, and then some perimeter treatment around the foundation.

I'm hoping that will get them under control. I don't want Miley to learn what a fire ant swarm attack feels like.

756 Ode to Rubberbutt Billy

All those that he would cherish shrink from him with fear,
And some that waxen bold by his tranquility,
Endeavour hard some grievance from his heart to tear,
And make on him the trial of their ferocity.

Within the bread and wine outspread for his repast
To mingle dust and dirty spittle they essay,
And everything he touches, forth they slyly cast,
Or scourge themselves, if e'er their feet betrod his way.

784 TV celebrities, coaches charged in college bribery scheme: The full list

That's pretty much all a bunch of bullshit.

To be honest, I don't see any actual crimes, here. SO they doctored up some test scores and action photos. Big whoop. They didn't steal anything. The only people they were "defrauding" were the piece of shit colleges who didn't do their own due diligence and who don't give a shit about merit, to begin with.

The mail fraud and wire fraud charges are total bullshit. Everyone who worked on this investigation and who participated in any paryt of it ought to be arrested for criminal abuse of power, offensive stupidity, and jailed for much of their, clearly, pathetic lives.

Cheating on tests is not a real crime. Having some bullshit women's soccer coach claim your spastic daughter is being recruited to a team that no one cares about and shouldn't exist in the first place (and wouldn't, likely, if it weren't for the feral government un-Constitutionally forcing its existence) is no sort of crime. It's not even really a college crime, let alone a real one.

This whole episode is a perfect example of everything that's wrong with the government and college.

As to the cheaters with the loser kids ... they're assholes (except for Lori Laughlin). But it's not a crime to be an asshole.

I used to run alot of that shit ... it just got old, fighting with people who don't have a clue how or how long it takes to do something try to dictate how to do something.

Pretty much, it goes like this - MGMT looks at what they want, at their calendar, and their checkbook ... then demand they get what they want within that calendar and checkbook.

The reason Project Managers turn over so much is pretty simple. The "successful" ones don't think too much about the details. They just say "We can do that" until their alligator mouth overloads their parakeet as. Then MGMT fires their ass and gets another Yes Man.

I ask, because I was out front yesterday when the new UPS guy walked up with a box for us.

Right number....wrong street.

A street that isn't within five miles of any street on that particular package car's route.

Package should not have even been on that package car.

816 When I worked as an armed guard at a Nuke plant they wanted us to work 16+ hours a day every day for the duration of scheduled outages to replace the fuel rods which usually took about 3 weeks.

They even set up cots in the cafeteria so you could sleep without leaving the facility.

I quit.

Yeah, tax bracket bump. That's why I wrote my own payroll software. Put everyone on a percentage withholding method. Most everyone was in the 8 to 12% withholding range. I'd add an extra 1 percent so they'd get a refund of some sort.

835 Driving around yesterday, I listened to a bit of Brian Kilmead's radio show.

Biden was the subject. Unbelievably, he's considered a favorite.

Then ensued a long string of callers detailing his numerous liabilities: creepy fondling and groping, racist remarks, his own big mouth, his long career as a do-nothing pol, his arrogance, his age, and I was shouting at the radio about the fact that he's run TWICE BEFORE and FLOWN HIS OWN CAMPAIGN INTO THE GROUND BOTH TIMES.

Biden is not just a bad candidate, he's a disaster waiting to happen, and his front-runner status should be seen as a sign that the Democrats are desperately going to be looking for a way to appear at least semi-normal to the rest of America. They know that the fruit salad of weirdos they have already vying for the nom is NOT going to get them anywhere near to the White House in 2020.

I don't think they will be able to hide the fact that he is a white guy this time.

He has chosen 'animal welfare' as his issue, because it is a 'no-brainer' and he grew up with cats

905 It happened so much people started changing their withholding to married and 9+ dependents the day before the outage started to be able to actually keep that money. And they would deal with the ramifications on tax day.

We used to do this all the time back in the day (working those 12 hour swing shifts). But there were no ramifications unless you were stupid. What we did was change our deductions to that married/9+ for most of the year, and actually got most of what we earned (us computer room tape apes needed all the help we could get). Then, towards the end of the year we'd change the deducts to single/0 for the remainder of the year.

The only "ramification", if you want to call it that, was we would not get much of a tax refund, but we didn't care. We were coming out ahead getting most of our pay during the year.

Sadly, after some years of this, the payroll department and the IRS got wind of what we were doing and made it much more difficult to pull off that inflated deductions trick. Pity...

908 Beto is actually running for Vice President as they think he can help a Biden octagenarian type. But you nailed it, Cruz actually created a Trojan horse here by not curb stomping him - Beto is terrible on his feet smug and vapid at the same time which is kinda hard.

Doesn't matter. Since there won't be any debates between the two major parties, the Enemedia can provide whatever illusion they want to cast to make Beta anything they think will sell to the world..

Just like the college enrollment scandal, Beta's FiL is a billionaire that is trying to get his ne're-do-well son in law a seat at the table by throwing money at the appropriate gate keepers.

910 I have said this before, while I pretty much like Cruz's policies, he "appears" to be a person people don't like?

Its a bit more complex than just Cruz not supporting Trump right away. Fact is, from the time of his first upset primary victory over the GOPe's chosen Senate candidate 6+ years ago, and subsequent winning of that seat, the guy has been called everything but a hero sandwich by not only the socialists and their media lapdogs but the GOPe as well. You get enough sh*t thrown at you for long enough, eventually some of it is going to stick and that is what he's had to contend with for years now. Sure, he probably should have curb stomped Beato, but I think he knew he was going to win in any case, and why waste the money, that he didn't have that much of, compared to the flood of Hollywood millions that trust fund baby Beto got.
