The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Our world has been taking a kicking. We’ve damaged our world and, you know, it’s no surprise that our world is reacting to the human race,Idris Elba, actor


Quote II

“It doesn't matter how grievous your sins may be, they can be washed away, if you will simply accept Jesus Christ as your Savior,” “This is the greatest decision that I've ever made. And I'm very at peace with it.” Roger Stone


Quote III

“If we start to release prisoners that are not prepared with their parole plans, they may end up out on the streets and sidewalks, in a homeless shelte. If we don’t prepare people to get back on their feet, they may end up in the emergency rooms. Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA)


"We" really have lost our f*cking collective minds haven't we?


Quote IV

A typical vice of American politics is the avoidance of saying anything real on real issues. Theodore Roosevelt
H/T Isophorone Blog


Quote V

In short, the Trump administration forced a catastrophic strategic surprise onto the American people. But unlike past strategic surprises—Pearl Harbor, the Iranian revolution of 1979, or especially 9/11—the current one was brought about by unprecedented indifference, even willful negligence. Michael Zenko

Quote VI

“The CDC’s response has been excellent, as it has been in the past,”John Auerbach, president of the nonpartisan Trust for America’s Health

Sometimes I wish they would bring back the embarrassing punishment of stocks. This is one of those times.

The TikTok user was identified as 26-year-old Cody Pfiser from Warrenton, Missouri, according to WTIC-TV. He was charged on Tuesday with a low-level felony of “making a terrorist threat.”

The Warrenton police were made aware of this video after it made its way around the world. Complaints to police came from as far as Ireland, the Netherlands, and the U.K.

I really do hope he is convicted of a felony. That should sit well on his resume.

When this fear mongering is done. There should be some serious inquiries into stock dumping.

In news that should hardly surprise anyone: those in charge of the US‘ biggest companies dumped billions of dollars worth of shares on the stock market just before it crashed.

Top execs of public US companies sold roughly $9.2 billion worth of shares in their own companies between the start of February and the end of last week, Wall Street Journal reports.


Of course there are a few U.S. senators that need to be examined under a microscope.

The "Friendly Face of The Police". Sounds like Bull Shit to me.

Police officers now have the power to enter homes to enforce self-isolation rules.

New Zealand entered a four-week lockdown to break the transmission of coronavirus on Thursday. Overnight, police officers have pulled over people who were breaking the self-isolation order — apparently unaware it was in place.

Police Commissioner Mike Bush, in a series of radio and TV interviews on Thursday morning, reiterated people will initially see the "friendly face" of police during the lockdown.

We aren't far behind, today I heard, "Governor Evers will let us go for a walk." F*ck Tony.

Tragic? I don't think so. Repeat Genius Award Winners.

Two Colorado men went into the wilderness in search of treasure, and only one came back alive.

The pair set out from the Denver area on March 17 to visit Dinosaur National Monument along the Utah-Colorado border to search for Forrest Fenn’s treasure, a bounty rumored to be worth around $2 million dollars that an eccentric New Mexico antiquities dealer said he hid somewhere in the Rocky Mountains.

........

On Wednesday night, the person who rented the snowmobiles to the men called the sheriff’s office to report that they hadn’t returned. And on Thursday morning, the wife of one man also reported the pair missing.

The search for the men started in earnest on Thursday, McIntyre said. And as the search got underway, authorities quickly realized that the same men had been rescued from the Wild Mountain area just two weeks before, on Feb. 29. In that incident, the two were riding snowmobiles when they both became stuck in deep snow. They were able to call 911 and were rescued the same day, unhurt, Uintah County Sheriff Steve Labrum said Tuesday.

I don't have a problem with that at all.

There are plenty of premium global tactical and security consulting firms that provide very high quality intelligence on threats to companies and to their high value employees.

If I were a client of one of these intelligence gathering firms and did not get detailed and advanced knowledge of things that would have a dramatic effect on the company and its officers, I would be looking for another firm.

What do you think retired intelligence officials do? Many do privately what they have been doing for years for the bureaucracy. The difference is, they live or die on the quality of their information - very much unlike the Deep State and typical government drones.

I would imagine that the intelligence gathered by private consulting firms is of higher quality and more reliable than the political biases and gamesmanship going on within the federal bureaucracy.

38 Hey everybody.

We aren't far behind, today I heard, "Governor Evers will let us go for a walk." F*ck Tony.

I went out walking today at my fave park to do so, Rynerson Park. Usually I can drive right in-- there's a road to a parking lot inside the park-- but today the gate was shut, and an LA County "Safer at Home" note attached.

What's funny is, there's also a parking lot right off the road where the park is located. I drove by and there were a lot of cars parked. This park is located between two flood control channels, and all you need to do if you park by the street is get out, cross one of three pedestrian bridges and voila, park entry. Lots of others were there besides me, also walking and exercising. Only diff was, the restrooms were closed.

Anyway, was fun to defy authority a bit.

83 Interesting report from Oregon. Officially, the first CCP virus patient in Oregon was on February 13th, caused by "community transmission" from unknown causes.

Now, it turns out that there was a person was hospitalized in Oregon with CCP virus on February 6th - a fact that the State of Oregon chose not to disclose.

Since in early February the Left was still insisting that discrimination and xenophobia was a bigger problem than CCP virus, my bet is that the person hospitalized was Chinese, and the State of Oregon found that fact to be too inconvenient to disclose.

84 In a way this helps the Democrats because they no longer have to run on Socialism. In another way, people have gotten a taste of what Socialism brings to a country and how truly fast collapse can happen. And we have the world's most persuasive communicator at the helm and ready to do some teaching. And it's an election year, so everyone is listening.

Think about it. Assholes like us have been trying to convince an entire country of ignorants of how shitty bread and toilet paper lines can be. How it happened to formerly prosperous countries. How quickly it comes about and how impossible it is to stop once started. And we've lived in such a golden age, the Democrats have been able to keep the blinders on all the fucking sheep with cries of Republican Bad, Christians Bad, Trump Bad.

But now???? I'm not saying it's worth it, but what a fucking gift.... with a bow on it at a time when this country probably needed it most. When it was the closest to a very genuine communist takeover.

The Lord truly does work in mysterious ways.

Last thread I see someone asked about those two daughters of my mother's friend in Seattle.

My mother hasn't talked to her again, and doesn't know all the details. Apparently they had took off on this little excursion back in January. (They had travelled to Spain earlier last year, but had come home).

Now, they should have immediately come home once the pandemic news came out, but being 20-somethings, I don't think they minded.

And I'm not sure, but I think they didn't pay any attention to the "All you broads, come home now" order from the State Dept. (That's a Trudeau joke).

So, may be up shit creek without a paddle.

I disagree. This has hit hard. People were already tired of hearing about Trump phone calls and Trump firings and Trump complaints and Trump this and Trump that and how it's Really Obama's Economy.

Their lives have been turned upside down. Democrats rely solely on stupid faggy petty marketing bullshit to persuade people (a misspelled word, a quote taken out of context, etc), and now thanks to this, the electorate is just about completely unpersuadable by small bullshit. It's going to be corona for the next 6 months. The Democrats will hold endless hearings about the "botched Trump response" through the summer and we will have to hear about it from their fake experts and people with an axe to grind... just like shampeachment. And they are going to look supremely stupid again, just like shampeachment.

136 What is really interesting about the Wuhan Flu experience in this country is how many people are getting a first-hand look at federalism. The federal government is offering resources and money to the states, offering to back them up. The states are in the fore-front, putting in the quarantines of various levels of severity, running the public health. This is *exactly* how it is supposed to be done. The states have the general police power to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizenry. The federal government is restricted to enumerated police power (for example, the only official federal first responder I can think of is the Coast Guard while the states have many.)


And what makes this interesting is how many reporters and pundits express that they have no clue why our response is in this fashion. They wonder why the federal government cannot do this or that, when if they ever took the time to understand the thing they are punditing about they would know.

Zenko used for work for Graham Allison at Harvard. Allison wrote a book three years ago, Destined For War: Can America and China escape Thucydides's Trap, which advocated turning over East Asia to China (he referred to the Monroe Doctrine as a historical example), and allowing the Chinese to turn the Western Pacific into a Chinese lake. I bet he gets lots of Chinese money too.

Here's what happened, synopsis, and this should be a lesson to any parents thinking about letting their young idiotic spawn go any world jaunts.

The two girls were staying at hotel in India. India goes into lockdown a few days ago. Due to foreign scourge virus. Hotel owner throw the two daughters out immediately. Yankee, get out.

No other hotel will take them in. No shop will sell them anything. They are sub-untouchable, being dirty foreigners probably infected with Evil virus.

They found someone who will take them and buy food for them. For now. If the mob comes with pitchforks and torches to burn out the Evil Foreign Scourge, I'm sure they will be tossed out. To the mob.

Now, their mother is not stupid and I can only assume she's in contact with State and trying to get the closest consulate on the case, but I don't know.

I don't think the two idiots even paid any attention to the "All abroad, come home now!" order.

178 Had to pick up some dog food today and they had "X" signs on the floor at the register six feet apart. I thought it was an invitation for a little fun:

I very stiffly shuffled with side steps from X to X until I got to the register and very seriously said, "One Mulligatawney, and don't forget the bread."

Much to my surprise and approval, the girl on the register (wearing a mask and gloves I might add) doesn't miss a beat. She basically shouts: "NO SOUP FOR YOU!!!!"

I'm pretty sure she scared the lady waiting in line behind me.

260 On Ingraham tonight, Laura had a top infectious disease specialist on the East coast, Dr Steven Smith, who said that he saw 64 patients today, and gave most of them the hydroxoquine / Zpack cocktail. Said he was surprised how well it worked on a really sick patient a few days before.

Dr Oz on Hannity said quite similar things an hour before. Oz on his TV show has been interviewing dozens of doctors and nurses and scientists on this topic.

These are 2 of the doctors that are on the front line, the actual tip of the spear of Covad19


Now doctors will get these common medicines to patients sooner, with even higher recovery rates.

They can now look to quarantine the sick, instead of the healthy

And it is getting warmer, as it happens in Spring.

It will be back to business for America in 15 days.

Because all of this, and because Trump is president.

Not the whiner Democrats.

310 why zappa you ask?
zappa managed to assemble world class math-musicians, or put another way, people who can really take 13/8 and 7/4, etc. and make it, every once in the goings on sound like groove.
no doubt a genius and all musicians, i believe, are looking to turn the mechanical parts of learning everything in technical terms into what we all lose our shit over when we get overwhelmed with the beauty, but not in the time tapping way.
not sure, i've said that correctly, but we all know pieces of music whether very complex or the simplest note (Jeff Beck) that find fundamentals in our souls and musicians that toil over that arc (just notes/math => sublime, soothing audio) is why they do it.
it is, mho, why we all do anything well. excellence is not evil, it is often the result of hard work...
... and then it all makes beautiful music sense and once you get one of these aha moments, in anything -- not music per se, it makes a person happy about how well they swept the floor, or mopped, or wrote software that worked from day one...

and then there are people that litter and do not gafaa, so there's that.

351 "Our world has been taking a kicking. We've damaged our world and, you know, it's no surprise that our world is reacting to the human race"
Idris Elba, actor

Our world is teaching us the same old lessons.
1 Some places in the world are disease ridden shitholes because the people living there let it be that way.
2 It's a good thing when disease ridden shitholes are a long way from your home, since the disease carriers will probably die off before they can spread the disease back to your home.
3 Traveling to a disease ridden shithole, contracting the disease, and then taking the fastest method of travel back home to inflict the disease on your family and friends is the act of a jack hole.
4 Living ass to elbow in a giant termite colony is a good way to start up and propagate an uncontrollable plague, and probably isn't the best environment to live in, despite all the 20 year olds who love how it aides in both hookups and ghosting.
4a Taking a weeks-long vacation on a giant floating petri-dish takes an amoeba-calibre brain.
5 Mother Gaia isn't fighting back, just watching people failing to heed the lessons learned in the past.

The idea of huge caches of gold laying unretrieved (at least on land) are pretty much unrealistic. A california couple out walking their dog a few years ago managed to scare up a coffee can chock full of mint state $20 gold pieces in the roots of a tree on their property. Good dog!!!

Technology is more advanced than it has ever been in the history of civilization, and research and development does not routinely involve handing out prototype weapons which will of course never let loose a nuclear explosion if dropped. There is nothing of note outside of America Complex, and all its citizens are completely happy to live inside it and never leave. Happiness is mandatory. Unhappiness is treason. Failure to comply is treason. Failure to carry proof of your Assigned Color Authority is treason. Exceeding your Assigned Color Authority is treason. Treason is punishable by death.

Summers Eve Inslee did close all gun stores tonight at 6pm, however.

--Yes, this.

My 'rents subscribe to a nature magazine and there was a photo in there a few months ago and my mom asked, what is that?

It did not have a caption, but I told her it was a pangolin (I feasted on on LIFE Nature Library books as a littl'un) and told her how they could roll into a ball and were kinda like armadillos. She looked them up on her phone.

Little did we know they would poke into the news. Because of that search, a couple of weeks ago she got an alert of a news article about "Revenge of the Pangolin."

The original item in her magazine was about how pangolins were endangered because of eating as exotic food. Maybe Corona-chan will save them in the end.

I proposed, for years, that California should be leased to the Chicoms for 99 years, as the Brits did with Hong Kong.

The expectation was that the Chinese would deal with illegal immigration in their own, inimitable way, while paying off the entire National Debt. And if they piss us off, we just take it back, because the First Rule of Chinese Law is Fuck You.

I now wish to revise this proposal, substituting "Republic of China (Taiwan)".

When I said the Fed was going YOLO, I had no idea. There are even more new tools they're proposing giving the Fed in this stimulus bill. Whether it makes into the final bill, who knows.

Now, this is unprecedented in the history of central banking. The US govt is not too efficient at getting money into the hands of the public quickly, so they are proposing to let the Fed do it with digital accounts.

So, in other words, the Fed would become not just a central bank, but a regular bank facing the public.

The idea is for the Fed to create digidollars and put it right into the bank accounts of individuals and companies.

I'm not joking.

502 Mnuchin stressed today that the fiscal/bridge-loan stuff was going to be dispensed in accord with developing conditions - thus might be less than the totals authorized. For both reasons (because it means faster recovery for all, and fiscal sanity, or at least less extravagant insanity), hope that's what happens. Pretty sure Fed would be operating on the same basis.

571 >> WTH is a "health care personnel"?

It's plural, first of all. Definition that any cursory Googling would turn up:

Health care personnel (HCP) are persons who have special education on health care and who are directly related to provision of health care services. HCP includes all paid and unpaid persons working in health-care settings. They are persons who have the potential to get themselves exposed to patients and infectious materials such as contaminated medical supplies, contaminated equipment, contaminated environmental surfaces, and contaminated air. Physicians, nurses, nursing assistants, therapists, technicians, emergency medical service personnel, dental personnel, pharmacists, laboratory personnel, autopsy personnel, students, trainees, and contractual staff not employed with health-care facility will fall under HCP category. Persons not directly involved in patient care such as clerical, dietary, house-keeping, laundry, security, maintenance, billing, and volunteers, but who are potentially exposed to infectious diseases also fall under the category of HCP.

581 Most of the comedy in IAMMMMW has aged very poorly. I pretty much have to skip every scene with Mickey Rooney and Buddy Hackett. They're awful in this. The Sid Caesar and Edie Adams scenes are not as annoying, but just as unfunny. So may cameos simply wasted. The only real bright spots are Jonathan Winters (who is physically incapable of not being funny), and the interplay between Milton Berle and Ethel Merman. Spencer Tracy makes a fine straight-man.

Rule of home cooking for 1 (like myself): Cook once, eat two or three, or more, times. In other words, make larger batches. Takes pretty much the same amount of time to cook one meal as it does to make more than one meal. A refrigerator and freezer are your friends.

For the soup I made last week, I got over 13 servings, with 9 servings going into the freezer.

hmm, that is like the Seinfeld episode when his parents who retired in Florida never used the A/C. The dishwasher thing is interesting. I for sure think there are things such as big pans that probably do not need to go in. But it really comes down to how you were raised. If your family always used the dishwasher, it is likely you will as well

Someone used my coffee maker while visiting while I was in school. I checked it a year later and it had pretty nice mold going on from the old coffee grinds.

I also got gifted a lot of plants in college. Funny that after a year I only had a cactus. That thing was indestructible.

I've found a 3-4 pound roast (with a nice fat cap) cooked in the crock pot, with potatoes on the bottom and carrots on top, makes a number of leftover meals, including open faced roast beef sandwiches with the saved au jus.

Another crock pot multi meal meat I cook is that corned beef in a bag, adding more spices as there are never enough in that teeny tiny spice packet. Not only corned beef and cabbage for one or two meals but also Ruben sandwiches along with corned beef hash with eggs for breakfast. Wrap up the cooked corned beef in portions for the freezer for those later meals/sandwiches. And a crock pot is so not labor intensive.

The one thing that helps is to use a Word file to keep a list of what's in the freezer, along with labeling what's in the freezer. Instead of hunting through the freezer to see what I want, I just scan that Word document, updating items as they are taken out of the freezer. For example, hamburgers 4/4 MM/DD/YYYY, then 3/4, etc. The Word file helps with quickly scanning the date foods went into the freezer, as well, allowing me to use that always correct FIFO inventory system.

637 I have a crock pot but the quality level is way below the one we had growing up. I should have kept that one as it was indesstructable.

It is good stuff for sure. I wold first go with some nice pans like cast iron, a good chef's knife, and some pans you can put in the oven. Of course add in some pots for soups, cooking pasta, etc. At that point you probably still have change from two c notes and you can cook 90 percent of what is out there.

The crock pot is for real but most gadgets are a waste. If you like them they are fine but still.

638 Haven't followed the testing saga, Headless Body, I imagine the full story will be documented when the fur stops flying - but isn't the only important action, when it comes down to it - containment, using radical measures?

I've been saying to people for a few weeks now that in pandemics, the tool chest has only a selection of sledgehammers of various sizes.

Only way to stop/slow virus transmission is prevent human interaction, or somehow prevent transmission during such interaction. Globally, only way to limit it is to prevent entry of infected into your country.

According to testimony to a congressional committee, Trump went for early end to China admissions (against advice of experts, but consistent with advice of deputy DHS sec. Cuccinelli).

But that was clearly too late, and also far too limited - admissions from those who had been in China, or infected by travelers from China, from whatever point on globe, did not occur (EU closure, then UK closure, then Canadian border, then Mexican border - all later, gradually).

Not criticizing here. In 1970, closing the hatches would have been very simple. Today? No matter how good your testing.

Yes and no. I only have a refrigerator/freezer but I stuff that freezer. Also, for some things like soups, I saved those good plastic soup containers from Chinese take-outs (plus from a now gone deli which had the good containers as well; the store delis use cheaper ones and I don't use those). For a soup, I simply line the container with a big piece of plastic, ladle in the soup until almost full, then carefully fold over the plastic, labeling the lid with food-date-1 to 7 and so on; that little layer of plastic prevents freezer burn. For the labels, I use the ones for file folders, writing on those what the food is, then I have a semi-clear larger 'clear address label' I put over that and which stops the other label from falling off in the freezer. I have over 20 of those containers in my freezer right now (they stack so well) and the Word file helps with knowing what I have and which numbered container to take out when wanted. It sounds like a lot of work but it's really not.

I learned the hard way about the necessity for the Word file and that plastic lining. Before I got organized with the Word file and the labeling, pulling out a container was always a mystery/surprise, sometimes with freezer burn.

they always go for milk, tp, and,and bread. BTW, I freeze bread now and that is really the only way to go imo. The healthy stuff goes bad just like that. If you freeze it, you can pop it in the toaster and them you are golden.

I also freeze bacon. You have to separate it and put it in the freezer on parchment paper. Then you can put it in a bag or whatever and cook it when you want. I learned that a long time ago at a golf shop/food counter. We always got our bacon frozen individually.

651 redc, yes, dropped in on AO a while back after a medical appointment in the area. Very nice store, good people. Wasn't even aware there was such a thing as "air-gunmiths", but it makes sense. If my idea for an AR weren't to build my own/learn from the process, as cheaply as possible, I'd definitely consider using them as source and advisors.

I razzed the manager at TJ's when I was in there last Friday, about their wine selection (they had plenty, but it was somewhat picked over). He laughed and said it was his only real crisis. We'll see - I figure as long as the world is closed I am going to try to make the most of things by finally dealing with home projects, etc., and minimize my exposure. I'll probably make one supply run and get booze/food from same place.

So he set out to create a very masculine, macho style of dancing. I think he succeeded. Graceful, but manly at it.

664 I'm just wondering what realistic level and timing of testing, or accurate honest reporting, combined with the practical, economic, and political realities of life, will allow reliable containment of bad bugs, in the age of truly global travel.

By the time even a Switzerland knows it has some new bug of int'l concern, given incubation times and the way these things work, travel will have spread it pretty widely already. So even a country with top-flight health monitoring and int'l transparency might not be able to tip off the world in time.

And most situations will probably be fairly ambiguous. So cutting off travel to/from a place of any significance, based on an alert that is less than biblical, might face delays. Enough to produce what we have today. And that's leaving out complications of trying to exclude infected coming in from "clear" countries (that aren't, but don't know it yet).

Within our borders - is there much doubt that a de facto lockdown on NYC metro human beings (not allowed to leave area) could greatly limit extent and severity of the total eventual national caseload on the current bug? Chances of that - for many reasons - approaches zero.

This is why I love the ONTs. Lots of time to share/discuss things like that. I'm not really around for the food thread often, and even that moves too fast to another thread.

As you say, that plastic lining is a trick that works and I like learning what other people's cooking tricks are. I have a few other tricks that are easy peasy. I peel ginger with a spoon so three's no waste and I can't cut myself.

As we discussed earlier having a spice grinder is great because whole spice seeds bought in large containers is cheaper than the small powdered containers and is fresher/doesn't go stale.

I also love, absolutely love, my stick/immersion blender. I've used that to make a pureed ginger-carrot soup, an asparagus soup and a dried split pea soup. I also use it puree roasted pepper, adding sliced Kalamata olives and capers to make a sauce for fish; it also freezes well and I use the half-pound containers for that instead of the pound ones as a I only need smaller portion per serving. But I make a big batch of that when I do make it, roasting 4 or more red peppers instead of just 1, getting a pound of the olives and slicing them, using any leftover olives in some other food. Capers are a staple and I keep a large jar in the fridge for other sauces and egg salad.

I was over there at the time the Travel ban was announced. With a group of 40 people on a local ski club trip, so far at least one person has tested positive for COVID-19. My guess is that the many, many hotel workers and vacationers from Italy, Germany and France broadly seeded the country. The week we arrived less than 100 cases, iirc, and when we left it had topped over 1,000.

Serious Cat, thanks for the linked article re Switzerland. Makes sense.

I got one for Christmas in 2008 and it quickly became my go-to device in the kitchen. The best thing about them is their "fire-and-forget" quality. Oftentimes I will prepare something like a stew or chili, throw the ingredients in the crock pot, set a timer for eight hours...and then go to bed. When I wake up, I break up whatever I have cooked into four portions and eat it down over the week. As I am the perpetual bachelor, this is how it has to be.

In fact one of my only concerns while everyone panic-buys at the supermarket is getting the meat I need for recipes. So while I could, I got two pounds ground beef (chili), 2.5 pounds of chicken (jambalaya), and 3 pounds of pork (for pulled pork). I have everything else I need for those recipes save produce, and no one is going after produce - just the shelf-stable items that I already had and have in decent amounts. I'm debating about what to cook in the next two-three days. If the panic-buys continue, I can hold out another two-three weeks.

695 not to toot my own horn but really a lament. But i was touting Boeing a few days ago.
That thing has gone up almost 50 percent in the last three days. What a
snap back! Did I buy when I was talking? Hell's no!

I
wasn't really touting them as I never recommend stocks but for sure it
was obvious they were going to stay afloat. My only guess on why it has
risen so much is some of the price was discounted for the idea that
they might go under. That never made any sense but so much today does
not.

The moves in that stock have been
truly amazing when you think about it. thirty to fifty percent is one
thing in a micro-cap but not in a big industrial. I think it was well
over forty percent though and that is amazing.

The
funny thing about stocks is it is easier to see an opportunity than it
is to act on it. And for sure the reason we don't act is we really don't
know. Anyone can come in after that fact and claim they just knew x, y,
and z would happen. I am not doing that as I did not. And what happens
tomorrow is anyone's guess.

That is a crazy stock right now. It used to move in fractions of a percent.

For spices, I toast if they are going in something. If they are being cooked on something, I don't toast. I understand a hand grinder for coffee beans, but it's not really necessary for spices.

I have a shitty little cheap 3-inch lightweight aluminum pan also left by the ex I use to toast spices. You can't cook anything in it as it will burn but it's perfect for toasting spices.

Agree on the pepper. Fresh cracked only for me, too.

RickZ, what brand/make of blender? Don't have one of those, have often thought of adding it to the arsenal.

A Braun. Came with a mini-food processor bowl, too. That's perfect for grinding nuts or ham/chicken to make sandwich salads. The stick blender bottom detaches for cleaning, with the top motorized part also fitting into the top of the processor bowl lid. Pretty convenient little tool and well worth the money. Don't know how much it costs as it was a gift.

One tool I do know the cost of and which is really good to have is a Microplane Zester. They cost somewhere between 15 to 20 dollars and is another 'worth the price' tool. I use lemon/orange/lime zest in various foods/sauces so I don't waste one bit of a citrus fruit. I love using a fresh squeezed orange and zest in my Chinese stir-frys, be it chicken or pork or beef. The lime juice and zest goes into my pork burrito filling. The lemon juice and zest gets used in lots of my pan sauces/gravies and my string beans.

Call me crazy but I like old-fashioned terms like "doctor" or "physician". I can't stand the CONSTANT use of "provider" for freaking EVERYTHING now because people have abandoned the fact that English is a language that demands exact precision of its users.

But you bring up a GREAT point, and something that has been bugging me for YEARS. The increasing use of "worker". This indeed to me is Communist inspired, and like "provider", it is used in everything now. Even prostitutes and whores must be called "sex workers" now. It's idiotic, especially to those who give a damn about English.

Hell, I remember when the Brits shipped in nurses from the Phillipines on jumbo jets. If you have the right healthcare skills, you can get a job pretty much anywhere.

I used to use it for ginger, too, until this last time (curried lentil soup w/ kielbasa). I found grating ginger to be really hard work and I always seemed to nick myself. I tried a different grating method, one I learned from 'Yan Can Cook'. I peeled the ginger with a spoon, sliced into nickels then smashed the nickels on a cutting board. Then I rocked a large knife through it to grate. Worked like a charm.

I also use the zester for grating small amounts of hard cheeses for meals/bowls of pasta, like Parmigiano Reggiano and other Italian hard cheeses. The zester is an easy clean-up.

706 So anyhoo...I know sportball is in deep disfavor among the Horde but it isn't among the general population.

So this bigtime famous NFL coach got the dreaded Chinese lung certain death known as Coronavirus.

But now he's okey dokey. Not even dead or anything.

"Less than a week removed from when he said he had tested positive for new coronavirus, New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton said Wednesday in an interview with WWL radio that he had been "cleared" and was "doing well."

"I'm doing well. I was cleared yesterday," Payton said, via ESPN. "It's been quite a process. You spend a lot of time trying to learn as much as you can about it. We're certainly seeing it on the news 24/7.

"So I've been fortunate. You stay inside like everyone's doing, and you find ways to pass the time. We had a competition committee meeting the other day on teleconference. But I'm feeling a lot better. And unfortunately, my appetite didn't dissipate at all during that time. You know, you watch a lot of Netflix, then you go on to Twitter, and you see everyone else is watching the same shows."

On March 19, Payton became the first known person in the NFL to test positive for COVID-19, but subsequently texted NFL Newtork's Steve Wyche that was "really good, considering."

So while he was nearly certainly almost at death's door he was pretty ok and doing his job.

We must still shut down the whole country tho.

Just sayin.

707 "Cue the health care workers/providers."

Which are what?

Posted by: Catch Thirty-Thr33 at March 26, 2020 04:05 AM (Exv3s)

708 Call me crazy but I like old-fashioned terms like "doctor" or "physician". I can't stand the CONSTANT use of "provider" for freaking EVERYTHING now because people have abandoned the fact that English is a language that demands exact precision of its users.

"Health care provider" is the more precise term, because it includes people like registered nurses, physician's assistants, and technicians. If I have something simple like strep throat, there's no reason to see a doctor - a PA knows what to do.

I was thinking about picking up some Exxon when it took a dump, but didn't.
Haven't checked the price in a week.
I DID buy Boeing after 9/11.

I figured Bush might need some warplanes.




Posted by: Deplorable Ian Galt at March 26, 2020 04:00 AM (ufFY

That was smart. I remember a commenter on CNBC a few days after 9/11 as if it were yesterday. I mentioned this a few day ago here. I think it was Joe Kernen but I am not positive on that. But it was the way he said it that always stuck with me.

It was while the market was collapsing and everything to do with aircraft was going down. He said, "I guess we are not going to fly in planes anymore". That is a paraphrase as it was almost twenty years ago. But it was the way he said it that stuck with me. And damn if that wasn't when the market started to turn.

I saw one recently in the middle of the last year. i realize a lot of these guys on tv are stock touts and they contradict themselves all the time. But there was a guy on CNBC that had so much conviction about TGT that it was obvious the was for real. I thought about buying but didn't. He was right and that stock when on a tear a few days later. The problem is knowing when the right time is.

Boeing has not been without its faults. They almost went into the tank in 2000 because of poor leadership and out of control unions. But as I said a few days ago, at least historically, American politicians from the left and right supported them, they had their back. There really is no other option than Boeing in commercial aviation. And if you want to improve the trade imbalance, you get foreign nations to buy Boeing planes.

So they have had a pretty amazing run over the last few days. I have not followed the stock closely in the last many years so I have no real opinion on it other than the obvious. It really is the only game in town. And until AOC and her type nationalize everything, politicos are not going to let that company collapse.

713 I got a microplane not long ago and use it for
garlic and ginger as well as zest. i never use my old grater as it is
way too small.



Posted by: Quint at March 26, 2020 03:51 AM (hHxp2)



I used to use it for ginger, too, until this last time (curried
lentil soup w/ kielbasa). I found grating ginger to be really hard work
and I always seemed to nick myself. I tried a different grating
method, one I learned from 'Yan Can Cook'. I peeled the ginger with a
spoon, sliced into nickels then smashed the nickels on a cutting board.
Then I rocked a large knife through it to grate. Worked like a charm.



I also use the zester for grating small amounts of hard cheeses for
meals/bowls of pasta, like Parmigiano Reggiano and other Italian hard
cheeses. The zester is an easy clean-up.

Posted by: RickZ at March 26, 2020 04:02 AM (Y8PSl)

good point. That is how I do garlic though I might have said otherwise. Garlic can be done with just a decent chef's knife. Smash it, peel it, and then chop it up and crush it with some Kosher salt. I don't look down on those that use a garlic press, but I haven't used one in decades.

The question was about allegations that the WHO has favoring China and the Ethiopian running the WHO is a stooge of China. The God Emperor pretty much says, "Yeh, I've heard that too. Hey, Tony, don't you know that wog running the WHO? Tell us all about it." And then tossed Fauci to the vultures.

Little Doctor Dictator did NOT like being on the hot-seat. He tried to deflect by saying what a great guy the head of the WHO was (sure, Tony, Head of Ethiopian Dept. of Medicine is a big resume' enhancer...whatevs, dude). When the journalist wasn't having it and was trying to pin Fauci down on China influence within the WHO, Fauci says something like, "That's political" and walks away from the mike.

LOL. The smarter journalists (there are a few) are going to smell blood in the water concerning this China/WHO thing. Fauci knew he screwed up because he apologized later in the presser.

774 Flue aside as I am not in on it and have not followed it like others. But the one thing I do know about Spain is they have been innundated with illegal immigration the same way we have. If you look at the history of the two countries, they are almost identical. When the USA did amnesties, so did Spain.

I know that immigrants pour into Spain and risk their lives just like Cubans coming to Florida. It is good that we recognize this as it is reality. I am not blaming immigrants for a flu as I have not followed it. Also, that is not a good reason to blame immigrants. If something it F'ed up, it is the job of the authorities to fix it.

But it is worth noting that impoverished peoples are pouring into countries other than the USA. They pour into Spain, Italy, and Germany as well. Wherever a group is doing well, those who have less will try to go there.

I saw a pbs special a few years ago with Spanish immigration officers that ran a sub in the Med. And Spain is harder to defend than the USA with our big beautiful wall. They have Islands all over the place and people who land there are pretty much guaranteed an in.

Now it an American tries to get a work and stay visa in Spain or France, well, good luck unless you have connections.

for sure that is so. But a bunch of Americans are lefties and support the left. It will never be clean because of all the lefties. The key at this point is to help the nation and defeat the left at their own game. We can't make it perfect because there are so many lefties.

I went out for groceries and gas yesterday and found everything we needed except eggs and milk. Made some stir fried pork and vegetables in the wok last night and I warned the missus, "If you really like this, tell me right now so I can jot down the recipe because I was winging it." It was pretty good and I think I'll try it again sometime.

We are working to bring our Scout troop together online using Zoom videoconferencing. Tonight we're holding a patrol leaders' council to have the youth leaders meet and decide how we'll proceed. It should be interesting. We experimented with WhatsApp, which apparently is directed toward smart devices, but its video connections are limited to four persons only.

give the guy a freaking break Anyone with a clue knows
what he thinks of the Kennedy Center. Those fakes basically stopped
the awards when Trump got elected. Sure they still have them but they
don't mean much. Trump was right to not show though I miss watching it.

Same
with lefty comedians, though I repeat myself.. Those talk shows almost
never bring on Medal of Honor recipients since Trump became pres. So
many people are fakes and show they hate us.

But
I am not going to blame Trump for this. His voters could have come out
in 2018 and made life for us much easier. I am not going to blame the
guy when his voters did not back it up two years later. Of course a
government stimulus bill is going to be laden with pork.

I get what your saying, but he didn't have to defend it, he should have asked for a clean bill and called congress out on all of this crap. It's just a little disappointing.

If you were Bill Gates doing that, you'd be hailed as The Man Who Eradicated The Flu. Seriously, would influenza stop if China were cut off from the world?

881 Heard several anecdotal stories now about miracle Wuhan Chinese Attack Virus cures from Chloroquine.


Also FWIW, apparently doctors in the tri-state area are writing prescriptions to their families willy-nilly, this from a friend whose job at United Health subsidiary shows him real time prescription writing volumes by drugs at hospitals and medical practices all over the country.

882 So I read yesterday that this is basically SARS v2. And 99% identical to a SAR RNA found in panoline. So I doubt it is military grade or human made. Just poor fuckers that eat anything that moves that allow the virus to combine with another virus that could hit the human ACE receptors.

883 I wish Blue Bell Ice cream were a stock. They were on their backsides only a couple years ago. Now they are breaking into new markets left and right. They are dominating the taste test done by Good Mythical Morning. Yeah I know they are libs but still they have an impact online. If only Bluebell were a publicly traded company. Damn.

HUCK

Does chloroquine bind the the ACE receptors that the virus uses? And where does malaria invade the body?

887 NYC metro area now has more WuFlu cases than all but about 4 countries. Queens appears to be the league leader in area counties. Also may be the league leader in Chinese population.

Probably nothing but a coincidence.

it is in The Swamp now, i noticed that. Forever they could never get in in The Swamp. Bluebell used to run an add that only the White House could get their ice cream back in the late 80s under Bush SR. Someone made them cut it out. But they are expanding like crazy.

I wish there was a trade here.

894 Yeah, of course, particularly if people have no other option," Fauci said. "These drugs are approved drugs for other reasons. They're anti-malaria drugs, and they're drugs against certain autoimmune diseases like lupus. Physicians throughout the country can prescribe that in an off-label way. Which means they can write it for something it was not approved for."

Join the club; we are legion.

I usually don't even go on FB anymore but I thought I do PSAs and was posting Wuhan Flu info for our county.

I lost it Tuesday night. I should know better. There is absolutely no way to get through to leftists.

=========
No clue (and I haven't been in a Holiday Inn in many moons). I just repeat what smarter more accomplished people tell me. I also hear that Telehealth (remote medical visits by Facetime or other video application) are through the roof, and that a cheap home antibody test is shortly to be released, from which doctors hope to identify many people who already recovered from WuFlu and weren't aware they had it.

Also, United Health has just got FDA approval for a home covid test, meaning you won't need to leave home to get tested.

That's my list of rumors/gossip for the morning!

902 dayum real Police Work

The FBI says a man killed by agents in Belton, Missouri, on Tuesday night was a terrorist suspect who was actively planning to bomb a hospital amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The suspect, 36-year-old Timothy Wilson, was killed by FBI agents while picking up what he believed to be a bomb for use in the attack

They have always been very careful about expansion. It was not long ago that is was only a Texas thing. But they have been expanding a lot lately and they are going into new markets as we speak. I visited their town, it is quite small.

The Good Mythical Morning ice cream taste test if pretty funny really. They had no clue that BB invented Cookies and Cream as well as Cookie Dough. Thank God they didn't include BB cookie dough in the contest as it would have been a wipe out and seemed rigged.

Posted by: Quint at March 26, 2020 07:44 AM (hHxp2)

904 There is a ice cream made in my little neck of the woods that is very good, Nelsons, and has been around since I was a little kid.

If you didn't see it above, the are investigating a high end ski resort in Austria. Back in January, they apparently had an outbreak of something they covered up, fearful of hurting business.

Infecting jet setters returned to their home countries. It was most certainly coronavirus. They've traced hundreds of early infections back to this resort.

Wikipedia says 10.2% as of 2017. Personally, I would have guessed lots more just based on the eyeball test. Most Chinese immigrants in the five boroughs of NYC.
