THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

White liberals deem that any speaker’s references to personal responsibility brands the speaker as bigoted. Black people cannot afford to buy into the white liberal agenda. White liberals don’t pay the same price. They don’t live in neighborhoods where their children can get shot simply sitting on their porches. White liberals don’t go to bed with the sounds of gunshots. White liberals don’t live in neighborhoods that have become economic wastelands. Their children don’t attend violent schools where they have to enter through metal detectors. White liberals help the Democratic Party maintain political control over cities, where many black residents live in despair, such as Baltimore, St. Louis, Detroit, Chicago.Walter E. Williams


Quote II

“I think the president has always been in a position where it’s his to lose, based on his bringing a sort of disruptive force into what would be called political norms. I don’t care whether it’s his way he conducts foreign policy, the way he takes on the government agencies and what they do with immigration. He brings his style.” Robert L. Johnson


Quote III

"We wanna take care of these kids and make sure they know we don't forget."Gary Sinise


Quote IV

“Initial reports of the total Black Friday NICS checks indicate Americans are voting with their wallets when it comes to their ability to exercise Second Amendment rights. Black Friday sales have always been strong and this year appears to have been no different. In fact, our totals for the entire year show a strong desire to buy firearms for recreational target shooting, hunting, and self-defense.” Mark Oliva, NSSF’s Director of Public Affairs

There are a number of parents out there who have failed us. A majority of Americans believe it is alright to snoop through someone else's medicine cabinet.

Half of Americans don’t think it’s a problem to sneakily steal someone else’s item from the bathroom.

A study of 2,000 Americans examined the habits and behaviors of people when it comes to their bathroom products.

It found that one in two people have lied about using another person’s toiletries in a pinch — and no product is completely off-limits.

Respondents admit to nicking all kinds of other bathroom items in a panic, like shampoo (51 percent), body moisturizer (38 percent) and facial cleanser (34 percent).

Surprisingly, more people say it’s acceptable to borrow someone’s toothbrush than a razor, with 21 percent saying it’s okay to borrow a toothbrush, and only 19 percent say so for a razor.

Just because they aren’t stealing doesn’t mean respondents didn’t confess to other bathroom crimes … like snooping around.

The term SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle) continues to be watered down. GM plans to use 3 cylinder engines in 2 different SUVs.

In the quest for better fuel economy, General Motors is reviving the three-cylinder engine for future models here in North America, marking the first time GM has offered such a power plant stateside in nearly 20 years.

A pair of new engines will surface in the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer and next-gen 2020 Buick Encore GX, measuring 1.2 liters and 1.3 liters. They are based on preexisting motors that were revealed abroad, though power ratings for the U.S.-bound engines aren’t available just yet. Given their relatively modest subcompact applications, don't expect them to suck you into the seat.

That said, some innovative tech and turbochargers provide extra boost, allowing the new mills to create similar power to their four-cylinder counterparts while reducing fuel consumption. Such includes an electrically assisted wastegate system, an electrically driven water pump, and an active vacuum system that helps relieve some of the parasitic load on the engine. Because they feature newer tuning, weigh around 40 pounds less, and have one fewer cylinder, they'll almost definitely offer better fuel economy and emit fewer emissions than the equivalent four-pot they replace.

Nothing says romance then asking your underage victim, hey you want to do it in the storage unit?

A 51-year-old Texas high school teacher's aide has be accused of having sex with a student, then 16, in various locations including a storage unit and the boy's own home.

Tedria Fluellen, 51, a teaching assistant at Worthing High School in Houston, Texas, was charged with sexual assault of a child under 17, after being accused of having sex with an underage male teenager beginning in 2018.

Fluellen was in court Friday night where her bond was set for $40,000. The judge told her that 'This is a public safety issue, even though these are only allegations at this time,' according to ABC 13.

Remember when your parents said? TURN THAT SHIT DOWN!!! Had we known then what we know now.

The desperate search for ways to help the world’s coral reefs rebound from the devastating effects of climate change has given rise to some radical solutions.

In the Caribbean, researchers are cultivating coral “nurseries” so they can reimplant fresh coral on degraded reefs. And in Hawaii, scientists are trying to specially breed corals to be more resilient against rising ocean temperatures.

On Friday, British and Australian researchers rolled out another unorthodox strategy that they say could help restoration efforts: broadcasting the sounds of healthy reefs in dying ones.

In a six-week field experiment, researchers placed underwater loudspeakers in patches of dead coral in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and played audio recordings taken from healthy reefs. The goal was to see whether they could lure back the diverse communities of fish that are essential to counteracting reef degradation.

Yes Rob Reiner, I have made a pact with Vladimir Putin. Hell, we even exchanged Evangelical Christmas cards this year.

It seems the Hollywood leftist who portrayed a Meathead in the sitcom “All in the Family” Rob Reiner was type-cast, either that or he’s developed a severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome. On Saturday, he declared on Twitter that white evangelicals, along with white supremacists, “have made a pact with (Russian President Vladimir) Putin.” Meathead Rob Reine

Hey Hunter Biden! Where did all the money go?

Not wanting the public or press to see his financial records, Hunter Biden is pleading poverty and political persecution to a judge in order to weasel out on child support payments for the baby he made with an Arkansas stripper. Thomas Lifson noted the legal implications of that here.

But there's also that weird plea of poverty and embarrassment from Hunter himself.

Fed up with San Francisco Charles Schwab says "Adios California".

Charles Schwab (NYSE: SCHW), the San Francisco-based financial services firm that pioneered low-cost stock trades, is moving to Texas. The announcement follows news yesterday that Charles Schwab will acquire TD Ameritrade for $26 billion.

Schwab will move its headquarters to Westlake, a suburb of Dallas-Fort Worth. The shift to Texas was telegraphed with Schwab’s increasing presence in the area over the years, with the firm already readying to double its Westlake workforce to 2,600. Ameritrade also has a large footprint in the area.

In a separate transaction, Schwab is picking up the brokerage assets of San Antonio-based USAA for $1.8 billion.


Does this push Texas closer to being a blue state?

There are claims that the earth is getting windier. Good news for wind energy.

The world is getting windier, according to a new study in the journal Nature Climate Change. Researchers analyzed decades of weather data and determined global wind speeds have risen dramatically over the past 10 years.

The study says wind farm operators are likely to benefit from the uptick in wind speeds since faster wind means more efficient wind turbines.


Princeton University scholar Timothy Searchinger, one of the study's authors, says researchers expect wind speed to continue to increase, he says, which has multiple positive effects.

We are living in interesting times. 2nd Amendment Sanctuary Municipalities in VA.


“Nothing even touches the activity in Virginia right now. A lot of gun owners were sleeping, but now they’ve woke the sleeping giant. All these gun owners that have been sound asleep have suddenly woken up.”

The numbers don’t lie. Of Virginia’s 133 counties and independent towns, 23 have already declared themselves Second Amendment sanctuaries, and another 53 are considering the measure.

“There are more coming,” Van Cleave predicted. “That number’s going to jump quite a bit.”

An Arizona teen who tried to shimmy down her chimney in an attempt to sneak home after a late night out ended up getting stuck for more than 90 minutes, according to a new report.

The teen decided the smokestack would be the best entryway to her home after she and her friend, identified only as Yasmeen, got locked out Wednesday night and couldn’t find another way inside, FOX 10 reported.

But the plan soon backfired.

“She was panicking,” Yasmeen told the station. “She was, like, ‘call 911!’ She couldn’t breathe.”

Asking for civility. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

KEIFER, Okla. – An Oklahoma police chief is asking Starbucks to have mercy on a barista who plastered “PIG” on a police officer’s coffee order.

“I just recently learned that the employee was terminated, and this may be a bit surprising, but I would like Starbucks to reconsider,” Keifer, Oklahoma, Police Chief Johnny O’Mara said, reported the Washington Examiner. “I’m asking for civility.”

66 The Second Amendment Sanctuary thing is right wing virtue signaling.

I mean at least it is virtue signaling which is better than not saying anything.

But the resolutions are not spending county resources to enforce new state laws about gun control.

This does not mirror the immigration sanctuary policy of actively thwarting law enforcement they don't agree with.

I once had a Warrant Officer get transferred in to run my Division, on a Destroyer, the one I had been running very successfully for 3 years (Leading Petty Officer).

He told me I had a bad attitude. I told him why. That we had gotten NO recognition for our work (Like Desert Storm, where there were 30 Medals given amongst 300 crew, and even though we were 33 of those crewman, didn't get shit)

He guaranteed me that if, over the next 6 months we continued the fantastic work we had been doing, he would guarantee we would get recognized.

We did the job. Hell, even our Department Head got recognized for our work. WE did not.

6 months later he pulled me into his stateroom, and I was the first, beyond the CO, to know he was retiring.

He told me this was no longer the Navy he wanted to serve in.

There are times a single Man cannot beat the system, no matter how hard they try.

I can see Barr being in this position.

Look at how the FBI actually got started.

A President HIRED, out of his own Whitehouse Budget, some senior investigators, and personally directed them on cases to look at.

It was not until decades later that Congress created the FBI as an entity separate from the White House itself.

86 To be fair to Hunter Biden which he does not deserve, I do not believe there is yet a support agreement/order in place.

I think it is like this: baby mama has requested a monthly amount plus other things like visitation and health insurance and college and all that.

Biden disagrees with the terms.

So until there is an order he is not in violation of one. The order can be retroactive.

No doubt baby mamas atty asked for Hunters financials and if he is saying that The amount should be less he has to justify it. Reporting says judge has asked for financials don't know if that is so or newsies making shit up. But likely Biden asked his records be sealed in order to turn them over. Judge can say yes or no to that it will likely be yes.

Of course if Obama wanted it unsealed it would be unsealed. And it could still get leaked. If he was a Trump you could count on it.

This is way too pessimistic - we haven't seen the IG report. I agree that if its all that the NY Times says it is, then its a tough "go around" for a prosecutor no matter how much evidence they have. But I still think it will be only half as bad as suggested, or not as all as suggested, and if so, Durham may have the goods to secure some pretty decent indictments.

Otherwise, its a very harsh and condemning report from Barr and some real realignments at DOJ and the intel community - but no one walks the plank per se.

215 The three cylinder engine was adequate in the early '90s Geo Metro, for certain values of "adequate".

It would actually run with Southern CA freeway traffic.

* if you drove with the A/C off.

* if you flogged the drive train like a rented red headed mule of a mixed metaphor chile.

Mind you, that was in a car where the *only* safety enhancements were the laminated glass, seat-belts and a single anti-intrusion beam in each door.

Crumple zone? Why, that was the whole car, of course!

Now, let's add the safety and engineering requirements added by thirty years of Government mandates.

That's easily another thousand pounds, right from the start.

Case in point: Park a "new" Ford Ranger next to one of the previous generation. Say, a 2012 model or so.

That size difference wasn't because Americans got fatter. Interior room isn't all that different from the older ones.

But the engineering got fatter, no matter how clever the "weight-savings" efforts might've been.

Between the California Air Resources Board, and the NTHSC, well... It's because of them that the cars n' trucks weigh nearly 2x what they did 30 years ago.

And it's in spite of them that we have Ford Raptors, Dodge Hellcats and Z06 Corvettes.

234 one report out this evening says that IG Horowitz will say there was enough evidence to justify the beginning of the investigation, but that Barr will officially object to this position and file an addition to the effect that he does NOT believe there was enough to justify it.

Posted by: Tom Servo

Such a finding by the IG would be devastating to their FISA abuse case and Barr knows it. That would be the reason for such a strongly worded objection - the IG is basically saying there is nothing illegal here, just perhaps some overzealousness - I hope your wrong Tom.

This is going to be a shit show if you're not.

I don't even need to see the barista. They run to a type.

Here's a query for all the Bartending professionals we have here, whether long ago or present day.

I'll wager that a liberal bartender is a WHOLE LOT more trustworthy with your drink, than a liberal (but I repeat myself) barista.

Bartenders run to a type, too. A much better type than their barista inferiors.

Mine also used yardsticks for long distance disciplining. One problem with the yardsticks for the Sisters was the yardsticks broke more easily. But the school always seemed to have a ready supply of yardsticks so only harm, no foul.

Don't forget the wooden pointers, either. As they were round and a little thinker than the yardsticks, they didn't break as easily. But they did break with frequent use and frequent use was required.

384 Going to school in Southern CA in the 60s/70s, I had many oh-so-bang worthy teachers that it became an exercise in frustration and endurance.

But mostly always, frustration.

Until I visited the H.S. in USAF uniform when home on leave. Then the old rules didn't matter, and she made sure that I *knew* that the old rules didn't matter. You can be sure that I came to attention and SALUTED!

On the opposite end of the spectrum, my 7th grade wood shop teacher was Mr. Dull. Yes, that actually was his real name, too. He made the still as yet unknown Mr. Rogers look positively charismatic.

That said, he was a WWII Marine Combat Veteran, with the photos, stories and trophies to go along with that.

A horrible storyteller, but the content was the thrill, and not the delivery.

He let me bring a mid-1800s black-powder Pepperbox Revolver to woodshop, and shape a new set of walnut grips onto it.

This would've been, 1971.

Things have changed, just a tiny bit, since then.

And yes, I was already an anti-leftist, shoot'em-up, huntin' n' fishin' n' campin' Proto Moron, even that far back in time.

That was a completely well intentioned but uniquely cruel thing to do to a kid. My Mom stopped 'em from bumping me up one grade, and I'm thankful that she did.

Kids are cruel. Especially to the small and weak. Which we are when we're a year or two younger than our classmates.

That said, I did get "bumped" into Honors English in the 8th grade.

I could write rings around my regular class peers, straight As on anything, no matter how tough the reading assignment.

"Honors" English was the realm of the Scions of the Rich. "Self Directing" projects, which meant money spent on diorama models and other expensive undertakings for which this poverty stricken kid hadn't a dime to offer.

I *begged* to go back to Regular English, where I could at least thrive or not on my LITERARY merits, and not the depth or thinness of my wallet.

Honors English was a Club, and I most assuredly was NOT in it.

Posted by: Dr. T at December 02, 2019 10:08 PM (2PXwn)


The cities/counties doing this are the ones south of northern Virginia and west of Richmond, the rural ones. Those are the ones that keep sending Republicans back to Richmond, and there are way more of those counties/cities than in northern Virginia. The problem is that 2 counties combined in northern Virginia have more population than the 26 counties/cities of the 9th congressional district. So the 2 northern Virginia counties vote for gun control, the 26 cities/counties of the 9th district will vote against it.


BTW, if you lived in the 5th, 6th or 9th congressional districts, you would have never known there was an election since there were exactly zero campaign ads on TV around here.

Midway though High School, I became Christian, and though ardent in my faith, failed often in the practice thereof.

Come the mid '80s, and soured on a bunch of Church Corruptocracy (non-denominational money making machine church), and so though I kept my essential core Christian values, lived all too often as if I hadn't.

Couple decades of mistakes and adventures later, I'm kind of gravitating towards a bit more Christianically aligned focus, core and discipline.

But I can't be the "preachy" kind of Christian, cause I've done about every thing wrong, short of murder, that was possible to do.

And if it comes to CWII and Lexington & Concord Vol. II, well, even murder isn't out of the realm of possibility.

But I do promise to flip over some money changers tables in the Temple along the way. If yer gonna be violently Christ-like, BE violently Christ-like!

470 The only thing I would change is the hospital I brought my mom to when she got sick, the one that most likely killed her. Other than that, I think I'm right where I'm supposed to be. I always think of the Star trek TNG episode "tapestry", where Picard says something about his life having a few loose threads, and when he pulled at them he unraveled the tapestry of his life. I used to think about it a lot, and I realized I was in the same position. I thought a lot of about doing certain things different, and after thinking long and hard about each thing I could follow it right to where it disrupted things I wouldn't want changed. One example is how I always thought about this one thing I would have changed musically, which these days I now know would have been life changing, but I definitely would have missed meeting the wife if I chose that path.


Also, had I went to the technical school I wanted to go to after high school I would have totally missed the opportunity to end up in music with choices to make which may or may not have blew the chance of meeting the wife, which saved me from another possible choice of a wife who would have been a lovely ride, but would have never been the gate keeper I eventually needed to keep me from being a complete reckless asshole musician, because she was as dumb as a bag of hammers. Those loose threads can be a bitch.

Your post is the lyrics, your end is the title.

Now get with the right bandmates, and make your post a Rock Anthem for the Ages.

Your life has led you to this point.

And now finally, it's time for you TO pull on the loose thread.

Don't forget the Strumstick Lead Solo!

(that last bit was snark, of course)

Seriously though.

Your post was a book, condensed down to it's essence in barely more than a hundred or so words.

That is art, and not everyone is an artist.

You are, so pick up the commission, step up to the challenge and DO.

I'm a generous tyrant with zero authority over you, so how 'bout we say #one year, to get it done and burned into a track?

And let me leave it with you like this.

Your post needs to be emblazoned onto every wall of every Boy Scout Hall, coast to coast.

Same with Boy's Gym Lockers, long as they're permitted to exist.

And etc.

You wrote an Earthquake there, whether you know it or not.

Save it to file, in your Word Processor. And then move it to whatever you use in composing tunage, and start your efforts there.

I'm challenging you out of respect and appreciation, frankly.

What you wrote is THAT good, and it is demanding of completion.

Well, it's only applicable if you don't have any regrets about things. i never worried about the stupid shit I did, because most are things I can chuckle about, and aren't world enders, or life altering, as in nobody lost an eye or went to jail. lol
Basically, I wouldn't waste a genie wish on that stuff. Its the big decisions, but those are the ones that will alter your life, and its just a matter of deciding what path would indeed be the ones to pull the lever on. In my case the result would have always been nasty. I can see some people easily needing to pull that lever, but in my case it ends as a dumpster fire.

when i was at Ft Slam for 91Q school, FY Q292, i got sideways for having said something less than diplomatic to one of my instructors, about a classmate.

the accusation was "disrespect to an NCO"

i went to the JAG "defender" an (O-3/CPT) at 187th Med Bn, who told me that an Art15 was no big deal, and not only should i take it, but that he had talked to my DS about the case, and had advised him what charges to file.

i went to the full bird JAG at the school, who i had a relationship with previously (he had crossed arrows on his collar points, and knew i was Infantry) and mentioned this to him.

he was not pleased.

i was not prosecuted, and the barracks had a new "public defender" in just a few days.

i wonder how many potential careers that asshole fucked up?

F lifers.

No, his point was that the 3-banger cars would blow up, or break down. The VW's were reliable, and in the early to mid '60's, 70 mph speed was adequate in most areas.

Such a finding by the IG would be devastating to their FISA abuse case and Barr knows it. That would be the reason for such a strongly worded objection - the IG is basically saying there is nothing illegal here, just perhaps some overzealousness - I hope your wrong Tom.

This is going to be a shit show if you're not.

Did anyone here expect anything else from Horowitz? He's got a record; we knew (or should have known) that he'd say, at most, that procedures weren't followed.

I remember that just before his first report, Mollie The Great wrote a column predicting just that.

I'm not sure, but keeping the enemy emotional and angry keeps them from responding effectively. We see it all the time on the left - they continually sound like maniacs to normal people, and it is extremely off-putting, which is one reason why they lose. Also, convincing the enemy that he is continually losing has the long-term effect of discouraging them from fighting as hard.

If an angry right-winger decided to start the Civil War II on his own, now, and shot up the local Dem campaign office, that would might just be icing on the cake from the Left's perspective.

671 It just that I try to avoid opening my mouth unless I have a contribution to make, and I assume that other people at least have some sort of goal when they post.

672 What a treat to watch the Baby, It's Cold Outside number from Neptune's Daughter (I think)! I love all the choreography. I wonder who much rehearsal time and how many takes it took to get all the choreographed action to flow so seamlessly.

If you like Baby, It's Cold Outside, head over to the Hallmark Channel satellite radio station. They have about twenty different versions of BICO and they're contractually obligated to play all of them every hour. Seriously, though, if you listen for an hour you're bound to hear BICO at least once.
