THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

“My nephew Capt. Joseph Schultz gave his life in Afghanistan for his country. All my relatives are veterans and this is a war memorial and we have to respect it for what it is.

“I’m not taking the soldiers off or the guns.”Bob Stokes


Quote II

"When Facebook is the principal news source for more than half of the American people, and the only source of news that most of them pay any attention to, and if it announces that it has no responsibility for the airing of false ads … how are you supposed to get accurate information about anything, let alone candidates running for office?" The Queen of Rationalization Hillary Clinton


Quote III

"They should not tell everything they’re going to do. Like if you are going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected and then take the guns away. Don’t tell them ahead of time."Joy Behar


Quote IV

“Affordable housing means stability and dignity, opportunity and pride. When these things fall out of reach for too many, we know the course we are on is unsustainable, and Apple is committed to being part of the solution," Apple CEO Tim Cook


Quote V

“This was a serious failure from a technical and compliance perspective. After reviewing the sites’ data privacy policy and terms and conditions, it’s clear that users likely had no idea that their activities being monitored to this level of detail.”John Wethington

One person's act of generosity is another's felonious assault.

Everyone likes a good scare on Halloween. However, a vehement anti-vaccination mother might have taken things too far. According to Yahoo, the Australian woman claimed she gave out lollipops tainted with chickenpox to trick-or-treaters to “help others with natural immunity.”

The mother, whose social media page identifies her as Sarah Walker RN, disclosed this bizarre plan in a private Facebook group called “Stop Mandatory Vaccination.” She explained that her son had contracted chickenpox, and argued that infecting other kids was an act of generosity.

“So my beautiful son [redacted] has the chickenpox at the moment and we’ve both decided to help others with natural immunity this Halloween!” Walker wrote. “We have the packaging open and closing down pat and can’t wait to help others in our community.”

As an older brother the Bible story of Cain vs. Abel always fascinated me. Now we know what weapon Cain used to murder his brother. By G-D it was an AR-15.

IRAQ—Archaeologists working near the ancient Fertile Crescent made a stunning discovery Friday morning: the AR-15 Cain used to kill Abel as recorded in the Bible.


Scholars have long suspected Cain could not have committed history's first murder without access to some kind of assault weapon since guns are the root of all violence. Now, there's proof, in the form of Cain's personal, heavily customized AR-15.

"Cain was planning on using a rock, but the area was designated as a rock-free zone," said one leading scholar at the dig site. "So of course, he had to use the next best thing: an AR-15."

"If only there were sensible gun control laws, humanity's first-ever homicide could have been avoided." Researchers believe Cain bought the gun illegally, however, utilizing a little-known gun show loophole.

Damn gun show loopholes...............

It is amazing that any of us "29" or older are even alive today. Slide is too steep. Little brat Young child is awarded $170,000.


But not for this New Jersey kindergartner. The kid went down a slide that at Griebling School in Howell Township, New Jersey in October 2014 that was “too steep,” got a little bit hurt, and won nearly two hundred grand in damages. All this because, apparently, the slide was 5 degrees steeper than federal rules permit. (This slide was 35 degrees instead of the permitted 30 degrees.)

I saw this last night on MNF. Unfortunately I had to hear the two ESPN bozos call this. Kevin Harlan puts them to shame on the radio.

Dogs. Apparently not always man's best friend.

An Ohio woman found dead in her home was likely killed by her own dogs, police say.

Mary Matthews, 49, was found in her Clearcreek Township, Ohio, home, about 40 miles northeast of Cincinnati on Friday, local police told CNN affiliate WLWT.
The cause of death has been determined to be a "dog attack," Clearcreek Township police Chief John Terrill told WLWT. Matthews suffered multiple wounds, according to an incident report reviewed by the affiliate.
Investigators found two "large but thin" Great Danes on an enclosed deck of the home and blood was present throughout the house, according to WLWT.

Ahhhh the United Nations and its subsidiaries what won't they protect us from?

The U.N. cultural agency apologized to a French sculptor after a "misunderstanding" led to the artist's nude sculptures being dressed in underwear.

We told you so. We told you over and over again until you called us despicable names and ignored us completely. Muslims don't mix outside of the Middle East.

Sweden's leading terror researcher Magnus Ranstorp of the National Defence College called to expel the imams, as previously ordered. According to him, their release will affect Sweden's security for years to come. “Now their halos have been further refined in their environment", Ranstorp said.

Liberal-conservative Moderate Party leader Ulf Kristersson called the development “a catastrophe” and blamed it on Stefan Löfven's government.

The number of Muslims in Sweden has been estimated at 800,000, or 8 percent of the country's population of about 10 million. A recent count by the Institute for Future Studies numbered 785 Islamic extremists in Sweden, which previously emerged as one of the biggest "jihadist exporters" per capita, providing around 300 "foreign fighters" to the Middle East.

To Protect and Serve Run and Hide

Presence St. Joseph Hospital in Chicago has a “no guns” policy that goes well beyond what is required by Illinois law. Last week, security there ejected a uniformed, on-duty Chicago Police officer visiting a retired police officer patient during a break. Why? Because the uniformed cop wouldn’t surrender his sidearm.

What did the lone female security officer tell the cop to do if he surrendered his gun and then needed it while inside the hospital? “You will have to do like the rest of us, which is to run and hide.”


My humanitarian side is taking the night off. To my Flatlander friends. Leave. Chicago? Let it burn.

Do you like vacations? Elon Musk doesn't and my oh my does he virtue signal.

After success with his early internet start-ups, Elon Musk became what everyone in the late 1990s wanted to be: a dotcom millionaire.

In 1999, Musk sold his first company, Zip2, to Compaq for roughly $300 million. After that, he went on to start X.com, which eventually became PayPal. In 2002, eBay purchased PayPal for $1.5 billion.

In 2002, he founded SpaceX, which is worth an estimated $33 billion, and in 2003, he founded Tesla, which has a current market cap of about $57 billion.

Though Musk had much success, he has not had a lot of time off. In fact, according to Musk, “vacations will kill you.”

What good is all that money if you don't enjoy the fruits of your labor?

Have you ever been so mad that you became a Genius Award Winner?

NOVEMBER 1--During an argument with a family member, a Florida Man picked up a metal cage housing a one-year-old Chihuahua and threw it at his relative, according to police who arrested the alleged dog tosser for domestic battery.

According to investigators, Stephone Johnson, 27, engaged in a “verbal confrontation” Tuesday evening with a female cousin inside his St. Petersburg residence. Johnson, cops allege, threatened to harm his cousin and other individuals present in the home.

90 As an older brother the Bible story of Cain vs. Abel always fascinated me

Was reading an article earlier (because nobody gave me projects @work) about internal correlations in the Bible.

Deborah is a lot like Moses, it argued. Both stories feature ancient Hebrew songs that are VERY ancient.

It also argued that the Ehud story had a lot in common with the Joab story later on. Stabbing the enemy in the gut.

I suppose the Ehud story came from an old Hebrew oral tradition, now lost, and that whoever-it-was who put the prose version in Judges, was the same guy who recorded the Joab story in Samuel.

103 In a hour, we will have a mass IQ test for a portion of Seattle.

Kshama Sawant, a Seattle city council member, is up for reelection. She is a member of Socialist Alternative, a Trotskyite political party.

It was revealed a while ago that Sawant doesn't actually make any of her own staffing or policy decisions - like a good Leninist organization, all those decisions are made by the anyonomous Central Committee of Socialist Alternative (headquartered in New York). It is generally assumed that Sawant is on the Central Committee, but there is no proof of that.

We'll see if Seattleites are happy with city policy partially being set by a number of Trotskyite New Yorkers.

115 Apropos of nothing. The new issue of Fly Tyer magazine, Winter 2019, arrived today. Usually I wouldn't mention that except this time the top of the cover said "Tucker Carlson ties great flies (really!)"

That's right. Tucker Carlson, Fox News and terror of libtards everywhere, is an enthusiastic and accomplished fly tyer and fly fisherman. It's a four page article about how he got interested in the hobby, his preference in styles and materials, and why they've worked so well. (Turns out he has old fashioned taste in flies including some classic patterns.) Mentioned but not dealt with is he also enjoys woodworking.

It's an unexpected but pleasant insight into someone we know in one dimension.

No way did the rescue dogs have the proper care and attention they needed. The husband may have abused them. The dogs had no choice, they were stuck. How were these people able to adopt these dogs anyway?

The story doesn't say but I assume the dogs will be destroyed. Just a horrible story all around.

176 106 Putting together an EDC (every day carry) kit for wife & daughter. Got everything I think they need, but wanted to poll the horde for a list of phone #s that they would include for their loved ones. I got local & state police, insurance, and towing as well as phone #s of a handful of people I can trust to actually help them. Any suggestions for something I've overlooked?


I was taught to also have a long distance phone number, out of state, of a trusted relative or friend. If all the local stuff goes down/ mass emergency, your people still have a back up not in the fray.

I live with a sadist who says things in the morning like, "Let's make (something yummy with my favorite, beef) for dinner." I get in the mood, look forward to it, then in the afternoon I get, "Nah, I don't really want beef. Let's just eat from the pantry tonight, go meatless." Not only do I not get beef, I get something totally boring from the back of the cabinet.

It's possible. From what I recall, when people tried to ask him what had got him so het up he replied something to the effect 'that asshole knows what he said, I am not going to repeat it.' It was as if it was as clear as day to him.

The internet strips context from the remarks we make, but at the same time, we impose our own context on it ourselves. So two people may read the same sentence and get a completely different read- while the original guy may have meant something entirely different when he made the comment.

232 someone recently mentioned dna/blood tests that can tell you which foods to avoid. It is probably bunk but if it were real, it would be pretty cool. I think a lot of people, including myself focus on diet regimens that might not even be the way to go. It is a crap shoot. It would be cool if there was scientific proof on what you should do to lose weight and get healthy.

For example. I don't find the intermittent fasting thing to work for me. Sure, at some point not eating should "work" but I don't think an 8 hour eating window is the cure all, at least it hasn't been that way for me.

Low carb works for a lot of people no doubt. But huge areas of the globe have a lot of carb eaters that are pretty thin compared to modern Americans. It would be very cool if there was a way to truly find what is holding a person back specifically.

Yeah, the Italians eat pasta or risotto practically everyday.

No nightshade plants for her at all, not sure what the reasoning behind it was. Works for her, though. Fit as a fiddle and survived Stage 4 cervical cancer partly due to some cutting edge therapy but her excellent health/fitness also helped nudge her into remission.

I actually enjoy this stuff because I am fascinated by the human mind. For so many, the internet is a place to imprint the various low grade mental illnesses that can be quite difficult to detect in casual meatspace.
I have a ton of them, all astonishingly diagnosable in the real world, but I am a practiced pro at keeping them under guarded key online. So kind of the opposite which is possibly why this stuff intrigues me so much.
Honestly it's more an interest in psychology than anything else. The biggest jerks online all leave breadcrumbs that lead straight to their achilles and they are so easy and fun to fuck with.

314 I once owned a copy of the Prudhomme Family cookbook. That's the family of Cajun chef Paul Prudhomme. Paul and his zillion brothers and sisters grew up dirt poor on a farm during the Depression eating their mom's traditional Cajun cooking. The family photos from the Depression showed a pretty lean bunch. Fast forward to the '80's ( when the book was published) and none of the Prudhommes were farming anymore but they were still eating that traditional Cajun cooking. I don't think any of them were under 250 lbs and most looked considerably heavier.

The current family photos sort of deterred me from trying the recipes, although the food sounded delicious. Some of the recipes were just kinda tough for a city girl to make - like a gumbo that included squirrel and turtle soup.

I've seen lots of dogs go thru breed rescue where I'm like.. nope. we have enough trouble placing healthy and mentally ok dogs. the stories are sad and everyone loves a project but... they're dogs. they are not like us.

340 I knew a dude that would go 0 to 1,000mph at the stupidest shit. Nicest guy
you would ever want to know, 99% of the time. I mean a truly nice and caring guy. Like a real humanitarian type. And funny too. Great sense of humor. Would joke about anything. But then you would say something
totally benign to him and he would flip the shit out. It was actually pretty fucking scary. I mean like probably borderline personality - Fatal Attraction scary. Like just be glad you didn't say it while he had a knife in his hand.

So there we were, early 90's at a fast food place digging on some nice french fries and I told him that I'd read that McDonald's french fries, although delicious, weren't even cut from potatoes, that they were made from a potato starchy powder. This was kind of "common knowledge" at the time (incidentally most likely being spread by the same commie anti-capitalist shitstains that seem to have lurked (swidt?) in our midst forever). But I digress.

So he said they were made from potatoes. I told him I'd read an article that they weren't. We went back and forth a little, not even close to heated or any more than conversational... but I was just standing my ground that I'd read it. I wasn't even saying it was true.

Dude fucking FLIPPED OUT. Totally lost his shit. In public. Face went purple telling me never to tell him what McDonald's french fries were made of. That his dad worked for McDonald's corporation and he had inside knowledge that they were in fact real potatoes. I mean every shade of purple and red you can imagine in an otherwise physically healthy face. I didn't think teeth could be clenched together any tighter. He was like a ventriloquist because I could understand every word through the teeth. Every syllable clear as a bell, like Jeff Dunham level, but I swear I thought he was gonna squeeze his own teeth out.

Funniest thing about it now is the dude was right. McDonalds fries really are cut from potatoes. But you know what? When he was in the middle of it and his face was frozen in electro-lightning anger, I believed him. Held my hands up and told him he was right and that I would never again tell anyone I'd read that McDonald's french fries weren't cut from potatoes. I got it.

Honestly in that moment I would have told him he was the Queen of Fucking England if it would have calmed his insane fucking crazy bitch ass down.

And don't even ask about the time this shit happened and he was *driving*.

346 I once owned a copy of the Prudhomme Family cookbook. That's the family of Cajun chef Paul Prudhomme. Paul and his zillion brothers and sisters grew up dirt poor on a farm during the Depression eating their mom's traditional Cajun cooking. The family photos from the Depression showed a pretty lean bunch. Fast forward to the '80's ( when the book was published) and none of the Prudhommes were farming anymore but they were still eating that traditional Cajun cooking. I don't think any of them were under 250 lbs and most looked considerably heavier.

The current family photos sort of deterred me from trying the recipes, although the food sounded delicious. Some of the recipes were just kinda tough for a city girl to make - like a gumbo that included squirrel and turtle soup.

364 I believe Mcdonalds has a youtube video where they go to great lengths to show that their fries come from potatoes.

It as if people have never heard of beef jerky.
I never got into the urban legend thing. Lots of people get into those things. They say the key is the bigger the corporation, the more people will believe it is sinister in some way.

The urban legend that always flumoxed me was the one about dipping tobacco having fiberglass in it so you would absorb the nicotine and get addicted. Makes sense until you realize skin is porous and they don't need to cut you with glass to give you a buzz.

Another one that amused me was one that went around like crazy in emails in the early 2000s. THat was the one about the origin of the word "shit". They said it was from merchant ships that would keep manure transports (lol) high on the ship so they would not get wet and stink up the place. The word SHIT came from the order to "Ship High in Transit".

that is a clever urban myth right there. Too bad the tern shit goes back must longer than that era and did not originate in modern English.

I think usually they don't even bother with them unless the number of absentees could affect the election. So if you won by 10,000 votes, not really a priority to open up the absentees if you only received 6,000 of them.

I remember an article about this stupidity. Some dumb teacher had a McDonald's burger and a homemade burger in the same envirionment. The homemade burger was molding, and the McD's burger wasn't. The article set out to prove the bullshit, by making a homemade burger the same size as the McD's burger. And guess what, it didn't mold either due to it being so thin and causing so much of the moisture to be cooked out of it.

There's a cute bit in one of Ron White's specials where he's doing a bit and suddenly his two French Bulldogs come running on to stage playing. Then he calls one over to bite his face. Then it gets hilarious.

410 Most of McDonald's fries are cut and processed at Lamb Weston, just outside of American Falls, ID. McDonalds prefers to use Russet Burbank potatoes, which are primarily only grown in few regions around the world. The North Western United States, and a few places in Northern Europe and China.

I have toured their plant and have seen the process. Lamb Weston's spuds are all locally grown and they are indeed REAL potatoes.

The catch was, Satan said, was that all the writer's family, his wife, parents, children, cousins, siblings, all, would have to die.
Satan then gave him a day to consider the offer and left.

The writer sat at his desk long into the night thinking, "wait, this is Satan, there has to be a catch here, somewhere!"

470 We live in our RV and typically spend the winter in the Southwest: Arizona or Texas for a couple of months. The RV community is pretty tight and we all heard last week that a couple from NH that was wintering in Corpus Christi were killed and their RV stolen, later found in Mexico. The law enforcement community is trying to keep the snowbirds calm by saying they can't figure out how this could happen and not to rush to judgment. They are trying to keep their snowbird community from going somewhere else. Usually, there are quite a few gun owners in an RV park, so this is a rare thing. But I think this is a wake up for all of us. We think that because we live in a house on wheels, that none of the bs in the cities will touch us.

They'd have likely been safe had they been *in* an RV park, or hell, even a Wal Mart parking lot.

But beachside, in the dunes at Padre Island, they're kind of out of the Mutual Support System, so to speak.

Guar-an-damn-tee-ya, their killers came across as friendly, cool dudes. Until they weren't.

Pity the loss of those New Hampshire RV'ers. They seemed to be really great people, as most RV'ers are. Same with most touring motorcylists, too.

Moral of the story. Fk the local laws. Carry at all times, and don't worry about it. "Concealed means CONCEALED", and no one need know unless it's the bad guy you've got to stop, and stop RIGHT NOW.

489 Well speaking of the non-WB-WB [how can u be a WB if you're deal is just a laughably illiterate grasp of federal election law??], Byron York, who's not stoopid, is joining many of the other online "right of center"* pundits in beclowning himself with logical fallacy.


Identity, background, partisan affiliation, favorite color of all these pathetic losers is, of course and obviously, totally irrelevant.


All that matters are the facts, and those are "meh", or maybe, to borrow a description, "perfect".


York has written some idiotic crap about how the ID of the WB matters because it must guide our views of the substance. WTFFF? Absurd. Obviously. Our analysis of the substance, as in all cases, needs to be based on logic, history, knowledge/understanding of the topic, etc. NOT the perspective of the WB - who clearly are lightweights, at best. The inability of most pundits to think or argue logically is stunning.

519 A little tidbit for anyone still reading who was following the gubernatorial races - everyone here in Mississippi pretty much anticipated a Tate Reeves victory, and no big surprise there, but there was a bit of, well, oddness at Jim Hood's rally roughly about thirty minutes before he conceded. In front of multiple local network news cameras and a crowd of several hundred witnesses, a young man sucker-punched Hood and was hauled away screaming "I told you so!"

Completely weird, and it's not even clear that the assailant was taken into custody. No idea on the motives, and the fellow seemed to be drunk. Took everyone by surprise, since, if you look at Mississippi's history, it's normally the First Lady that attacks the governor (or in this case, the would-be governor).

The Tehachapi Loop is nearby... A .7ish-mile rail loop where a train longer than 4,000 feet will loop over itself.

They could've put more thought into the town motto, though. "City of Four Seasons" ain't exactly unique to Tehachapi.

But the plague of teachers' unions extends even to the upper south.


And I wonder how many citizens were raped, maimed, or murdered just today by illegal aliens with prior felony records eligible for deportation yet released by "sanctuary" jurisdictions?? This is a number nobody tracks, and if they did it would be more secret than actual production and absenteeism numbers in the 198Os USSR.


Just thought of that due to the media attention to the massacre in Mexico - which will be out of the headlines by .... tomorrow? Think of the impure and dangerous thoughts some might have after being reminded/informed that we have a failed gang-driven country next door. Hell, they might even think having an actual border would be common sense.

It seems her strategery has been not just to get case dismissed, but to use it as a pry-bar to help open up the entire fetid carcass that was the top level FBI and DOJ.


At this point it becomes a decision for the prosecution - drop the case and hope [against hope, and the odds] that the outlandish misconduct will be forgotten or at least not pursued, or hope that the judge dismisses the case without pursuing the criminal clownshow in the govt.?

Note I did say "against hope, and the odds".


But there's a wee problem. It's been a factor all along. The whole edifice is in peril. Wray [who's a lousy choice anyway] is utterly driven by this - he knows the Bureau could face a much, much worse aftermath than the IC after the Church hearings. Barr also knows he's got a very tainted tiger he's riding.

569 Kind of an odd story about Kansas City taking down Martin Luther King's name off a street.

If you read the headlines written, it seems like a rejection of King (when I read the headlines, I wondered if the rejection or memory-holing of King was that far along.)

However, reading the story, evidently the city council renamed a street (The Paseo) only recently with King's name and a lot of resident's are upset because it was a 'historic' named street.

Huh, seems more like a case of city council tyrants imposing their opinion on the city, rather than the city deciding for itself what the hell they want to call their streets.

570 103 In a hour, we will have a mass IQ test for a portion of Seattle.

Kshama Sawant, a Seattle city council member, is up for reelection. She is a member of Socialist Alternative, a Trotskyite political party.

It was revealed a while ago that Sawant doesn't actually make any of her own staffing or policy decisions - like a good Leninist organization, all those decisions are made by the anyonomous Central Committee of Socialist Alternative (headquartered in New York). It is generally assumed that Sawant is on the Central Committee, but there is no proof of that.

We'll see if Seattleites are happy with city policy partially being set by a number of Trotskyite New Yorkers.
Posted by: The ARC of History! at November 05, 2019 10:22 PM (I2/tG)


It looks like *gasp* the city of Seattle's District 3 are going to make Ark happy. From the Seattle Times election coverage:



Two of three incumbent Seattle City Council members were positioned to win reelection to their district seats in Tuesday night results, but socialist Kshama Sawant was trailing in her race against a business-backed challenger.

Lisa Herbold was ahead with 51% against Phillip Tavel and Debora Juarez was up with 57% against Ann Davison Sattler, while Sawant was behind with 46% against Egan Orion.

Many more ballots will be counted in coming days and more progressive candidates tend to gain ground as additional votes are tallied, so Sawant may be able to close the gap in her contest.

No sun - no moon!
No morn - no noon -
No dawn - no dusk - no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member -
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! -
November!

But not for this New Jersey kindergartner. The kid went down a slide
that at Griebling School in Howell Township, New Jersey in October 2014
that was'too steep,' got a little bit hurt, and won nearly two hundred
grand in damages. All this because, apparently, the slide was 5 degrees
steeper than federal rules permit. (This slide was 35 degrees instead of
the permitted 30 degrees.)



This kind of shit is why almost no public school has playground equipment anymore. If it was up to me I would outlaw all tort law in the US except in the case of a written contract.

African slavery reexamined by a Senegalese academic

By Alain Arbez

The West is responsible for black slavery! It is not only the Muslim suburbs that affirm this, the media are widely reporting this politically correct contention. Madame Taubira, the black justice minister of France, even added her personal touch when she said: "It is not necessary to mention the Arab-Muslim slave trade too much so that young Arabs do not have to carry all the weight of the crimes perpetuated by the Arabs."

But now the work of Mr Tidiane N'Diaye, a black Muslim anthropologist and specialist in African civilizations, has seriously challenged this dogma. A few years ago, he published "The Veiled Genocide", a reflection on the deliberately hidden aspect of Arab-Muslim slavery, from Mohamed to the present day, that absolutely should be read.

--SNIP--

While the slave trade perpetrated by Westerners over two and a half centuries may have been an attack on human dignity that was widely denounced and commemorated, it is useful to demonstrate historically the Islamic origin of the slave trade in question. And let us not lose sight of the fact that the enslavement of blacks dates back 10 centuries to the arrival of the conquerors of Allah in Africa.

Thus, in 652, the warlord Abdullah ben Said imposed on the Sudanese an agreement for the permanent delivery of slaves, which has grown over the centuries.

As a result, Mr. N'Diaye believes in his highly documented study that the entire slave trade conducted by Arabs in Africa (some 20 million victims), with the active complicity of local rulers, has constituted a human hemorrhage infinitely more devastating than the slave trade of Westerners alone over a more limited time.

--SNIP--

This book is an essential contribution in the fight against the usual denial of slavery linked to jihad, and this exhaustive study by a Muslim researcher provides the additional information needed to challenge the condemnation that still focuses solely on the Western slave trade, a frequent argument of anti-white racism cultivated by certain circles.

It is nevertheless interesting to remember in this regard that it was the Westerners who put an end to slavery in Africa in the 19th century, through their presence and their reference to humanism from the Judeo-Christian Scriptures.

658 Many years ago at University we studied all this stuff. I was profoundly frightened. The Frankfurt School and all the "Institute For Social Research" really opened my eyes.

They really amped it up in the last 20 years. It's been the driving force to turn America communist or globalist or whatever. "The worse, the better". That's what everything we see today is about. Destroy the family, the institutions, bankrupt the treasury, get everyone fighting amongst themselves. Nothing but misery and destruction along the way. The only question is determining whether people are aware and possibly complicit, or weak and powerless or perhaps naive. It is insidious.

And it must be engaged and fought at the micro-level.

Positions with the local church leadership.

Local government all the way down to the lowest elected position.

It actually deals with the FHA and the Civil Rights act, but it allows the cities to sue the banks under the color of these laws when non-white residents are foreclosed on by the bank and it causes financial harm to the city by some magic token.

The last school bond issue we had was defeated at the Nov election by a 2/3 majority. So the criminal school board held another bond election in Feb with no county-wide notice. They gave all county employees the day off to vote. It passed with a 60 vote total in a county with 70,000 people.

School bond are supposed to be spent on nothing but capitol projects since they are supposed to be a temporary tax. the excuse they gave for the bond issue was to expand the local elementary school building in the school near me to get rid of temporary classrooms in "trailers". Well, the trailers are back, the money is gone, and the temporary tax will never expire. It is one of the reasons my sales tax is 10.5%.

Just read an article that said KY never re-elects governors, this current gov was at 30% approval, and then Trump came in and he nearly got the guy re-elected, despite most KY voters not liking him.

And all the other R's won in KY, including their new AG, who is also their first black AG.

So really a pretty good night for Trump and the R's in KY.

I guess you're being humorous but hell yes, there was willing and deliberate intent to defraud. She should have her benefits cut off until restitution is made, applying her benefits to the balance owed until 'paid off'.

760 Texas passed Proposition 4, barring a state income tax, by a 75-25 margin. So there's hope.

Posted by: Hadrian the Seventh at November 06, 2019 06:25 AM (7rVsF)







Wasn't that one of those bills written to seem misleading. You vote Yes for no income tax and you vote No if you wanted one.

They pulled that $hit on us when we lived in CT and the Town wanted a new police station.


They tried twice to get it passed but it was soundly defeated each time by double digits.


Then the Town lawyers came up with a new "proposition" based on a motion someone made at a Town meeting. The proposition was if you wanted a new police station vote no, if you didn't want one vote yes. Of course it passed.

761 Don't pay anything to anybody for at least three months.



They'll adjust and readjust, and if you already paid you won't see a penny of that money again.

That's funny. I got a check the other day from my wife's former specialist for $45.00. She has not seen him since 2013. The asshole cancelled her last appointment in 2014, and the office said he would call and re schedule. He never called, and my wife called the office several times more and still no call.

They're also hoping to ratify the Equal

Rights Amendment, making Virginia the final state needed for possible

passage of the gender equality measure.

I thought the ERA was dead, being well past the time limit for
ratification. Even past the extended time limit for ratification.

It has been resubmitted by every congress since 1979 despite the fact that SCOTUS ruled it had expired in 1979 but the proponents say the actual bill did not include an expiraton date. They lie;.

767 Morning all...

Kentucky election is odd. All R's win EXCEPT the governor? Was he really that bad?

Posted by: Tami at November 06, 2019 07:00 AM (cF8AT)

768 It was a good night in KY for Trump. Every candidate
but one, the unpopular governor, won. And Trump nearly and
singlehandedly dragged him over the line. As it is, it looks like we'll
see a recount.

_______________



Just read an article that said KY never re-elects governors, this
current gov was at 30% approval, and then Trump came in and he nearly
got the guy re-elected, despite most KY voters not liking him.



And all the other R's won in KY, including their new AG, who is also their first black AG.



So really a pretty good night for Trump and the R's in KY.

I am still not sure how bevin won the first time. He brought a whole lot of negative baggage from his time in CT with him to Kentucky. Plus he was best buddies with blumenthal when he lived there.


He wasn't going to get reelected the minute after he rolled back the very popular in Kentucky medicare expansion from obamcare. He was a dead man walking after that.

Posted by: Mr. Scott (Formerly GWS) at November 06, 2019 07:00 AM (JUOKG)

769 The KY election is not settled yet. The Democrat won by only a small margin and there are accusations of widespread Democrat vote fraud.
