The feral thuggery and criminal behavior since the death of George Floyd should have been nipped in the bud. It should have been stopped suddenly, swiftly with deadly force if necessary. Instead the dregs of society have caused millions of dollars worth of damage. And on top of that, the criminal destructive behavior is just as contagious as the Kung flu. Communities which seem law abiding are being infected.

NBC Montana reports a Columbia Falls man is behind bars after police say he took down the Ten Commandments monument in Kalispell with a chain and a pickup truck.

The Kalispell Police Department said calls came in on Saturday that a male was on the Flathead County Courthouse grounds, and appeared to be wrapping a chain around the Ten Commandments monument.

Officials say those callers saw the man attach the chain to a pickup truck, and then pull the monument into the street.

Police say the man reportedly removed the chain, then got into the truck and left the scene.

There has to be mornings that President Trump looks in the mirror and says, "What the fuck was I thinking when I decided to run for president."

Qasem Soleimani, commander of the Revolutionary Guards’ elite Quds Force and one of the most respected figures in Iran, was killed in a US drone strike in January during a goodwill visit to Iraq.

Authorities in Iran have approved a measure to ask Interpol to put US President Donald Trump on its international Red Notice of wanted persons over the assassination of General Qasem Soleimani, Iranian media including Mehr News and the Fars News Agency have reported, citing judicial officials.

The Special Snowflakes have evolved. Because.

Oregon State University President Edward Ray said in a statement that Oregon State University and the University of Oregon have decided that “the term 'Civil War' will no longer be used to promote any athletic competition between the universities.”

The rivalry must be renamed because “it represents a connection to a war fought to perpetuate slavery.” Even though it is not meant to allude “to the actual Civil War,” the universities should not “provide any misconstrued reference to this divisive episode in American history.”

“it represents a connection to a war fought to perpetuate slavery" Tweet This
While community members have demanded in the past that the rivalry no longer be called the “Civil War,” the universities are now taking action “in recognition that Black Lives Matter.”

Your Personal Data Is Worth Money. Andrew Yang Wants to Get You Paid

Contact tracing has been a somewhat controversial tool for fighting coronavirus in the US. American consumers wanted privacy to be preserved, so Apple and Google set about devising an API that could help track potential Covid-19 outbreaks while keeping users’ identities anonymous. But what many of us seemed to forget during conversations about contact tracing is that we’re already living under a digital microscope, with multiple companies following and recording our every move.

Indeed, just going about our daily routines can generate hundreds of data points, from where we went to how much time we spent there to what we bought, ate, or drank. Essentially, we’re freely giving away all kinds of data to companies that analyze, package, sell, and profit from it—not just every day, but every hour.

Former Democratic presidential candidate and entrepreneur Andrew Yang wants to change this, and he’s rolling out a framework to do so. Yang is most well-known for his support of a universal basic income of $1,000 a month for every American. UBI would be a central tenet of building what he calls a human-centered economy, which entails a form of capitalism that measures economic success by peoples’ well-being rather than by corporate profits or GDP.

I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is you can purchase Karen masks at Walmart made in China which should come in handy for the next strain of Kung Flu.

A new strain of flu that has the potential to become a pandemic has been identified in China by scientists.

It emerged recently and is carried by pigs, but can infect humans, they say.

The researchers are concerned that it could mutate further so that it can spread easily from person to person, and trigger a global outbreak.

While it is not an immediate problem, they say, it has "all the hallmarks" of being highly adapted to infect humans and needs close monitoring.

As it's new, people could have little or no immunity to the virus.

As fellow Moron Hrothgar would say, "Competence and "tenured" unfireable unaccountable unelected Civil Service employees do not mix".

Wyatt Earp, the gunslinger who helped tame the American West, once said, "fast is fine but accuracy is final." The same thing could be said about testing for COVID-19. Back in March, the Food and Drug Administration took the unprecedented step of allowing COVID antibody tests to flood the market without review. The tests were billed as a critical tool to assess where the virus had spread and who might have immunity. But in the government's rush to get more people tested quickly, it may have missed the mark. Over the course of a three-month investigation, 60 Minutes has learned that federal officials knew many of the antibody tests were seriously flawed but continued to allow them to be sold anyway. Now, as Coronavirus surges in parts of the country, that government failure is complicating efforts to know the reach of the Coronavirus.

Schadenboner is Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

“Woke” brand Nike suffered a stunning $790 million loss last quarter and has confirmed they are laying off staffers, Business Insider reported Friday.

Part of the massive loss is due to the effects of the coronavirus response, the report said; however, Nike CEO John Donahoe said that “layoffs were not related to the pandemic.”

"The president has spoken up and offered ways to help stop the violence. It is my hope that the leaders in the City of Chicago and the State of Illinois will accept his offer."

Police say the man reportedly removed the chain, then got into the truck and left the scene.


Now, here are several $64,000 questions:

- will the bastard make bail?
- will he be allowed to plead to a misdemeanor?
- will he go home to find it a pile of ashes?
- will he step out of his truck to face a mob of baseball bat-wielding neighbors?
- will the local church say jack shit?
- will anybody do anything?

I think we all know what the answers will be.

Once again, a line is crossed and wiped away because "that's not who we are."

37 Golden Girls cancelled.

Amid recent controversy over politically incorrect content, Hulu has decided to remove an episode of the television show "The Golden Girls" from Hulu that some perceived to contain a blackface reference.

This past weekend, the streaming platform made the choice to remove the 1988 episode "Mixed Blessings" (Season 3, Episode 23). In the episode, Dorothy's (Bea Arthur) son Michael introduces his older black fiancee Lorraine to the rest of the gang. Dorothy is resistant to the marriage not because of race, but due to the age difference, while Lorraine's family is worried about their daughter marrying a white man.

The scene in question is where Rose (Betty White) and Blanche (Rue McClanahan) are wearing matching brown mud masks when meeting Lorraine's family.

Second City Cop had a piece on their rejection this morning. Lightfoot bleated out:

Lightfoot responded with a series of tweets late Friday. She said she stands with Pritzker and "I don't need leadership lessons from Donald Trump." I stand with @GovPritzker in providing for the safety and well-being of our residents.

Rupert Holmes also wrote a Broadway musical, The Mystery of Edwin Drood.

He did at least one mystery novel that I know of, set at the long-gone Treasure Island in California. The book's amateur detective is a saxophone player, so Holmes included with the book a CD of self-composed swing music his hero supposedly played.

Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater reportedly made the decision to get tough on the rioters in an effort to curb any future potential riots.

So he's got no problem.

When was the last useless GOP senator primaried? Murkowski, 2010? Cantor was that year, House of course.

Graham just got re-nominated.

It's not that "we're not voting our way out of this" - it's that "we" are most definitely continuing to vote our way right *into* it. Overall, collectively.

As has working like a dog in the dirt most days. And best of all CHURCH in Person!

Buy the one you get the best deal on, or the one with the smoothest action. Or best sights. Whichever one becomes the puppy with the big eyes to you.

Grips wise? I have the Taurus version of these on my Model 85 Total Titanium.

Link points to eBay.

The classic S&W "Banana Grip", to my hand provides a near-perfect fit. Get the smooth, uncheckered ones. No snag on the clothing (and the Houge *will* snag), and they're great at mitigating the recoil, even though they're not soft rubber.

Plus, they're 100x prettier than the Houge or any composition grip.

Enjoy!

285 LCD,
You are so right about the only important stat.

The freakout over hospitalizations (like in TX, which are, to be honest, up) reflects the fact that people were starting to go to the hospital for reasons other than COVID, hence using some of the ICU beds. I'm told that ICU beds tend to run close to capacity most of the time...a reflection of other issues we've discussed here before, such as consolidation of hospitals, how Certs of Need work and closing smaller/more rural hospitals.

Despite increasing cases, deaths way down--7 days ended 6/28 for the entire country at 4077 vs. peak weeks in April of well over 14K

310 I went to school at Miami U in SW Ohio, a bit north of Cincinnati. There was a local musician there named John Kogge, he played a lot of solo acoustic shows - lots of Prine, Jonathan Edwards, Little Feat, etc.

Anyway he told me he opened up for Lowell George solo show (post-Little Feat, near death) and pestered LG to smoke a doobie with him. LG was resistant, but Kogge REALLY wanted to say he smoked a J with the great Lowell George.

Finally, George relented and said (paraphrasing) "Fine, we'll smoke a J, but you ABSOLUTELY cannot touch me. If there's one thing I hate it's people fucking touching me. You must promise me you will not touch me. ETC"

They smoked, Lowell was dead within a couple months

that's my story (actually not MY story)

340 285 LCD,
You are so right about the only important stat.

The freakout over hospitalizations (like in TX, which are, to be honest, up) reflects the fact that people were starting to go to the hospital for reasons other than COVID, hence using some of the ICU beds. I'm told that ICU beds tend to run close to capacity most of the time...a reflection of other issues we've discussed here before, such as consolidation of hospitals, how Certs of Need work and closing smaller/more rural hospitals.

Despite increasing cases, deaths way down--7 days ended 6/28 for the entire country at 4077 vs. peak weeks in April of well over 14K
Posted by: groovygirl at June 29, 2020 10:11 PM (vGLaF)
--------------


GG, I was watching Laura Ingraham last week, and your Lt Governor was being interviewed. They listed the percent full of ICU beds in TX, he said they have 7,200 total beds in TX and the occupancy rate was, at it's highest, 19 percent.

That means that 81 percent of ICU beds were empty that day.

And last week PROGDA was screeching like it's all over!


Every virus in history is measured by how many people it kills, not how many get sick and recover.

Also known as, get this, THE DEATH RATE.

Yet, no mention of this fact in ANY Progda news, or Fox news, either.

Blame me, and others here.

Posted by: groovygirl at Jun

Yep, I saw two administrators talking today that ICU bed capacity in a normal month should run 91-97% of full- they have to, because they are so expensive.

But they can expand if necessary.

Also, as you mentioned, people are going in for "elective" surgery that they've put off for 4 months and surprise, some test positive yet asymptotic for Covid but they are coded as hospitalized for Covid, not just WITH covid.

It's all a shell game from here on in, but I don't see how the dems keep it going for another 6 months.

388 LA Sue,
It was amazing to talk with folks in church this weekend (again, first in person in 16 weeks). Every one of them were far more concerned about deaths from the big mortality causes in this country--i.e., cancer and heart disease. No one was claiming COVID is not a disease, nor that people might die, but they had some perspective.

The Left has no perspective b/c they have no anchor, no center, nothing but whining and victimhood.

I wound up with experiences my college-mates couldn't even dream of and still have a superior grasp of logic and the English language.

392 My travel plans this summer have been a bust. We didn't get to go to Hawaii in May. Then I wondered if I should revisit my idea of getting a travel trailer and take some road trips. Well, everyone else is having that idea as well. We thought we should try staying in a rental trailer to see if we even like it, but we haven't been able to jump on rental opportunities quickly enough.

The trailer I think I want is available for sale nearby. Should I just buy the thing now in ignorance and repent at leisure? I wanted something to take to the MoMe.

393 There was a book that came out in the early '80s called "Public Ivies" - idea being you could get an Ivy League- equivalent education for much cheaper. Anyway, Miami U was in there. It was a big hooha deal and brought in a bunch of blueblooders who couldn't get into Yale or Darmouth, I guess.

I wouldn't blame you for keeping them, against the day when you might want to put them back into commission.

I agree Robert's an overall negative but the more I think of it the more this ruling should not be unexpected . The Texas decision was just 2016 and it's basically the same case as this one. A stupid decision then too . Admittedly a different court so Robert's could have used that to justify not having to follow such recent precedent. Texas surely would have refilled. Robert's just punted.

Its an amazing scenic road that occasionally brings you through a few tunnels where you see Rushmore in the distance as you go through the tunnels. The road will eventually bring you to Rushmore.

469 A biology Nobel Laureate has from early in the epidemic taken his own approach to analyzing the bug, its spread, likely path, etc. His earliest inklings - he's not an epidemiologist, but even the barest familiarity with the fundamental science thereof would incline one in this direction, and I think he was aware of that - were that the data pointed to a Gompertz, or non-exponential growth path for the virus, vs. the more dizzying Sigmoid growth.

But the thing of most note here: he says that when he and his collaborators were first looking around for reactions/critiques of their emerging analysis, they got little response. Much worse, the response wasn't substantive, on the validity of their work, but - "you shouldn't be saying that".

Yeah we used to drive past the road that takes you up to rushmore, and that will take you to the crazy horse mountain. After we saw that we continued on to Custer, and in Custer you can get the needles highway/iron mountain road and end up at rushmore. The whole trip is a big loop. It takes a few hours, but waaay worth it. We always did it on a harley, but even in a car its amazing. We used come up from sturgis, hit deadwood, and from deadwood grab the road, rt 385, that took you past Pactola lake (another must see) and all the way to the rushmore area to do that leg of the trip. It was usually a day trip. What a blast that was.

477 I'm sure not too many people around here pay much attention to my kooky ravings...

But I *have* been saying for several months now (since BelieveAllWomen was rejiggered and since I saw "Karen" bubbling on social media - well before it got *here*) that the REAL war on women - the Democrat war on white women and eventually all women - has begun. I even bitched here a little about the Karen meme, citing it as clear evidence of what is coming. I'm sure it made me sound humorless, but this stuff is really obvious to me.

Theory: Now that straight white men have been destroyed, and are completely exhausted hearing about "women", the Left sees open season on them. And no one will be there to stop it. No one cares anymore. "Karen" is what they are using to shut women up *now*. Eventually it will fear, intimidation and if need be, public stonings. Call me humorless, I'll take it.

And here we go.....

Till - Exclusion of Black women from feminist movements - 53% of white
women voting for Trump. White women are lucky that we are just calling

478 We passed through Mount Rushmore early one morning after the park had closed for the season. There was a mountain goat in the parking lot and we drove right next to it. It was 2 feet away standing there looking at us for may be 30 seconds until some asshole on a motorcycle came roaring into the parking and spotted the goat raced over.

The goat took off and leapt over the barrier and was gone.

Almost ran the fucker over with the truck. He had no idea how close he came to dying in that empty parking lot.

498 Big family gathering this past weekend. Got to see my brothers-in-law who I hadn't seen in a while - love those dudes. One is a high ranking firefighter downstate and had some harrowing stories about riot week. One of my other BILs had a more encouraging story I wanted to share.

BIL is black and married into our otherwise white family. It's a remarriage for my wife's sister so he's a more recent addition and I'm just getting to know him lately. Awesome dude. Fabulous set of pipes. I admit I have kind of a man crush.

Anyways, he shows up for work on Juneteenth, and goes to his locker to change into work duds. Manager comes over and says "why are you here? It's Juneteenth". BIL looks at him askance, "I'm here to work." He goes on to explain to me that Juneteenth is a big deal in the community he grew up in, but he never expected anybody to make it an actual holiday. So he's really puzzled at this greeting.

He goes into the main area, and the company's got catered lunch, and all sorts of pamphlets and info about the holiday. Thing is, he's the ONLY black person at his company. Many of the other employees are of Mexican or other Latino descent - but he's the only person for whom this day holds meaning. So the higher-ups have made a big to-do out of it and he's feeling kind of self-conscious.

Then the manager or president says, "why don't you go on up and say something." He's thinking "wuuuuuut" but he's a good dude and he goes up front, clears his throat, and gives them this:

"Thanks for doing all this. You didn't really have to. One thing I gotta tell you: I am NOT on board with this Black Lives Matter stuff. They're just destroying, looting and rioting and they're not really in it for my community." He wraps it up cordially and returns to the room.

He said he didn't get much reaction either way about his comments. They offered him the rest of the day off and he said "fine" because the awkwardness was too much anyways.

Hope that gives you a little glimmer of hope.

of course.

I trained MANY service members in the Navy who were CLUELESS about firearms, including a LOT of senior people.

And then had to teach them how the rules of engagement we had taught them, changed, when we got back to the US due to our Laws (yes, created a curriculum for that very subject).

They did what they were able to do. You go to war with the army you have, not the army you wish you had.

Heh. Reminds me of a funny story. I was working at the old Sperry-Sun shop in south Calgary. The whole crew, maybe 5 of us, went to a little cafe in a nearby industrial strip mall, backing up onto a railway line. Lots of empty land, with grass and weeds. Cafe had outdoor tables. The weather being real fine, we elected to eat outdoors. Well, no sooner had we gotten out orders, than the gophers from the rail yard showed up, and started begging at the tables. They'd come right up and tug on your pants leg, demanding a handout. Bold as brass, they were. They doted on French fries, too. They'd take them right out of your hand with their little paws.

One of the guys grabbed a gopher by the paw. The gopher wasn't having any of that, and bit him. Little buggers have sharp teeth.

Ballsy little bastards. It seems some animals can get conditioned easy. There is a White Castle burger joint by me that has racoons that wait in the wooded area on the edge of the parking lot, and when they see cars park they come up and sit by your door waiting for you to toss them food. Its like clockwork.

And then had to teach them how the rules of engagement we had taught them, changed, when we got back to the US due to our Laws (yes, created a curriculum for that very subject).

They did what they were able to do. You go to war with the army you have, not the army you wish you had.

They did good IMO.

geezuz people.

nobody should have to take a driver's training class before they take out the '87 Caddie down the residential streets at 60 miles an hour, either. right?

of COURSE you go to war with the army you have.

of COURSE they have the right to own, and use, firearms.

For crissake, I live near FUKKING SEATTLE. I was born here, and here is where I make my stand.

And I am not moving, either. Not saying anything else. opsec.

What I saw were two white people that were fearful for their lives and their lifetime investment, their magnificent home.

They could have really effed themselves with a negligent discharge. I would bet that neither one of them even knew what the phrase "negligent discharge" meant. A 3 hour training course, even a classroom only course, would have helped a lot.

Two gunshots, identical reports (not an exchange of gunfire), heard here less than 100 yds from my recliner.

I'll dim some lights, and remain as I am. Sippin' bourbon, reading the ONT and having no fucks to give.

Anything to the North of the boundary of my neighborhood is forfeit to the last of the street vermin which used to run this side of the island.

They still live in the areas there, but at about 35% of their former concentration. And gentrification is rapidly having it's way with those streets and blocks.

They come down my street though, and I'll be St. Louis Lawyer, but with training discipline and a great many firepower surprises, ready at hand.

Forget the broad, I'm surprised she didn't accidentally shoot somebody. On the other side of the coin they at least had the balls to do something. 10 out of 10 for balls, but minus 3 on style. Personally, they support the movement, so it would have been fitting if they got devoured. In the end, they are sandbags.

536 I'm with redc14 on this.

Last thing on this earth I want to do is to pull a trigger on my fellow man. Been faced with that more than once, and thankfully, never had to complete the sequence.

It *is* the Cold Minded aspect of my nature which held the pressure from the trigger those three times. Because I could process the event in motion, and choose *not* to press, in that moment.

The Commands were obeyed, and violence was averted.

Those were basic Mk.1 mod.0 "bad guys", but the third was my own brother. Who served 8 years for bank robbery.

Street rioters scare me more, though. Crooks tend to be opportunists.

Antifa and their hate fueled BLM surrogates, tend to be more antagonists though, and fully committed in their drive to antagonize their targeted victim into the grave.

I do not volunteer to be their targeted victim, and shall forcefully object to their so doing.

IIRC, your general patient base is neither rational nor intelligent, or even, in certain situations, sane.

easy to say, but harder to do, but try not to take it personal: you are NOT dealing with rational personalities, and they are reacting to the propaganda they are being fed to achieve this result. it's like w*rking a pysch ward.

571 Talking about birds, I had a red tailed hawk in the yard today. It nailed something, but I don't know what it was. The only thing in the yard is usually chipmonks, squirrels, and other birds. It was standing on it and eating it, so I couldn't see. A deer walking in the woods spooked it off because it grabbed whatever it had a flew away. I saw him flip it around on the ground, and I swore I saw legs of some kind, but looked too big to be a chipmonk, but when the hawk flew away with it it looked brown, like a chipmonk. Could have been a rabbit, but I rarely see those, maybe the hawk is the reason. There were 2 bluejays diving at him and scoring a few hits here and there on his head and back while he was eating, but the hawk didn't give a rats ass, and wasn't even flinching. He was completely ignoring them like they weren't there. The blue jays might as well have been hitting a rock. Maybe they had a nest in one of the trees there and thought they were next. Eventually they gave up and flew away. It was definitely a first for the yard..

Fox reporter wants to know what's up with (Traitor) Roberts. 4 years ago he had upheld a similar law in TX and is now citing that BS stare decisis shit to strike down the LA law. Personally stare decisis really has no weight on a case where written law exists and is a BS invention of Teddy Kennedy. I have already cited many examples where SCOTUS pulled 180 swings on case law fully reversing previous rulings by the court. Even have one in tonight's opening post.

That is an individual franchisee, not the companies themselves. Sure it is a big franchisee, but his company obviously had specific issues, the main one being the debt load.

No doubt in my mind that Pizza Hut is a shell of its former self. I noticed something was up when I saw entire areas that lost even delivery coverage when a particular store went down. That is not a normal thing for a pizza delivery business. You don't allow large areas to become "pizza deserts". Your competitors will lay waste to you.

Pizza Hut used to be considered a step up from the other famous chains. The food was better, particularly the pan pizza. Also the the real attraction was eating pizza out. Back in the day going to Pizza Hut was a big deal for kids, sports teams, etc. It was called Pizza Hut for a reason. They were huts, restaurant locales where people congregated to eat pizza and salad with a pitcher of beer.

Today, almost all chain pizza is delivery. But for some reason Pizza Hut dropped markedly in quality and then its "brand" became stunt items. They didn't even pretend to have the best pizza anymore, it was about being the most outrageous for a couple of weeks.

Pizza Hut is owned by Yum Brands. Yum also owns KFC and Taco Bell. They also owned Long John Silver's and AW. Maybe out of all of those brands Taco Bell is still relevant in the USA for some reason I can't fathom. KFC is big in China but has done little in the US other than tread water at best.

Wendy's used to be a lot better. There was a time when their burgers really were noticeably juicier, but that was a good thirty years ago. Still, the Wendy's company has done ok in recent years.

Well I am sure as hell no expert on it . But a lot of these huge chains have franchisees. They are private people and companies that purchase a store and or the rights to sell a product. You might have a private business that owns several famous restaurant brands in a certain locale. It is pretty much how these companies work. I think Mcdonalds is about half company owned locations and the rest are franchisees.

The Franchisees are pretty much buying into a business model that already exists. They own that particular locale, but they use the companies branding, they cook the food the way the company wants, and they normally have to buy their products from the company itself. There is leeway thought. Particular Mcdonalds franchisees created the Big Mac and the Filet of Fish to suit their particular markets. A lot of these franchisees are not some mom and pop that purchased one locale, but private companies that own stores in large areas of the country.

That, along with Skips news, is not good tidings from Yum Brands. Maybe it will be a wake up call, who knows. BTW, they still have the old school Pizza Hut restaurants in many small towns. But the food was so much better years ago. I guess someone decided to be penny wise and pound foolish.

621 correction. Over 80 percent of Mcdonald's restaurants are franchises. There are a lot of benefits to the franchise model for the parent company. Who want's to worry about the success of an individual locale or deal with the overhead and staffing for example. Better to make them purchase your food and try from themselves to make a go of it. I think the best example of this is the comparison between being an individual gold prospector and being the guy that sells the picks and axes to all the prospectors.

A little leeway perhaps. I remember reading of one franchise that went back to using beef tallow (?) to cook the fries and they had lines down the block.

The big Ronald came in swinging the stick and said in no uncertain terms this was not allowed.

Given franchise rights to a McD's are a million dollars (more in bigger markets?), the fries returned to McD's current less acceptable and less desirable method.

They had a lighter, thinner mouthfeel and a cleaner taste. It is amazing, but try this if you've a mind to:

Eat a meal while drinking a regular, modern Mt Dew.

Then, eat the same meal while drinking a cane sugar soda like Mexican coke.

The corn syrup (and I notice it most in Mt Dew) distorts your sense of sweet flavor and completely changes the flavor of the meal.

A friend who worked in the Consumer Packaged Goods industry told me that it's inevitable that these companies eventually switch to cheaper ingredients, such as sugars.

When a company first sells products to the public, they use premium ingredients to gain market share. Once they mature as a company, competition tends to erode their initial wide margins. To preserve profit, they switch to cheaper products; in soda companies the cane sugar is usually the first to go.

It's funny to consider that it can lead to the company floundering or failing completely, too.

I rarely go to subway if I can help it anymore because they decided to try to make gimmicks instead of just focusing on a dozen good sandwiches with good ingredients at a fair price (looking at you, Jimmy Johns and Firehouse). Sure they probably gained some customers occasionally, but it likely balances out at best. Or, like Pizza Hut, drives you into the ground.

Woke up early with a leg cramp; stretched it out. Washed, shaved, fed, forked hay for the feline livestock.

My neighboring parish, Jefferson, which until now has been a little more sane about the mask and lockdown nonsense, has suddenly issued a mandatory requirement for masks in any business. It starts on Wednesday (notice they give us very little time to prepare). All the news stories are unclear as to whether the customer refusing to wear a mask will get the citation and fine, or the business will, or both.

The parish president, who pretended to be a conservative when she ran, says "No one is going to jail for not wearing a mask," but she also admits that their lawyers are working to see whether the sheriff's office can be "drafted" (her word) to enforce it. Sounds like she's jumped into tinpot dictator land without making sure she can actually do it.

I intend to carry a mask with me, but say when I'm "reminded" that I can't wear a mask for medical reasons. If they make me put it on, I'll tell them if I have a medical emergency in their store, they will be named in the lawsuit. Maybe that will scare them a bit.

Strangely, Walmart in Orleans Parish said they will post signs about the "need" for masks, but did not say they would refuse entry to anybody without one. Maybe I need to start going to one of those stores.

My understanding, based on the actions of Harris County, TX, is that while no one is going to send you to jail for not wearing a mask, any business with customers without masks is subject to being fined. So in effect businesses become the enforcers, just like no shirt, no shoes, no service.

Re: corn syrup - Gotta maintain my Adonis like figure, soda pop is not part of my routine. But it doesn't taste right, it doesn't satisfy.

Masks have been turned into a fashion statement as well. I went to Kroger for Clicklist pickup yesterday and they used to all wear the generic light blue masks. Yesterday, though, the young lady was wearing a specialized Kroger mask.

And you see that everywhere. Places are selling specialized masks... sports team masks, patriotic masks (how ironic...), different colored or decorated masks, etc.

I speculate that is to make masks more "enjoyable" for people to want to wear them. If everyone was forced to wear a generic light blue medical mask, I suspect more people would object. But because they're making it "fashionable" now, more people are agreeing to it.

Yep. Failing to wear the veil is treated as a felony while rioting, MDOP, arson and looting are non-crimes.

Can't control people until you make them criminals.

But I do understand the "below the nose" part. Even though, right on the box it reads "Doesn't protected against Covid-19" the folklore pretends that the wearer is constantly projecting a spray of disease that this paper gizmo is supposed to capture.

Sugar, cream, vanilla. It isn't rocket science. The chemical laden ersatz frozen foam in the cheap stuff burns the tongue. They use a seaweed derivative, I think it's what is called Carageenan, for golly knows what.

I'm not a snob, I'm just a simple sort who wants ice cream. Cream, sugar, egg, vanilla. Chocolate for hedonists. It would be nice if they sold it by weight, instead of artificial air bubbles to increase volume. The containers feel like a block of styrofoam.

Can make your own Chocolate syrup at home, too. Easy peasey. Corn syrup has ruined that as well.

The next phase will integrate ALPR technology with the store's mandated parking lot security camera system. Those discarded veils will result in a citation mailed to the vehicle owner's home claiming some sort of biohazard violation.

Expect in a few months requirements by municipalities to roll yet another bin, probably red, out to the curb alongside the regular waste and the recyclables dedicated to disposing of "medical waste".

_______________

I thought it was interesting how he framed the U.S. civil war as a "war to perpetuate slavery." For the Union side, it was a "war to end slavery." And since the Union side was the winning side in the war, shouldn't its view prevail? Why is this Oregon State guy adopting the loser's point of view? Is it because he secretly wanted the south to win? Clearly he has a lot of unconscious bias that he is not owning up to! He should be tarred and feathered and run out of town!

779 I thought it was interesting how he framed the U.S. civil war as a "war to perpetuate slavery."

Because university senior staff know that there was never any civil war in all of human history. And the only one that ever occurred was about "perpetuating slavery".

This is a shining example of the quality of a higher education.

If we were to unpack that statement though, it would reveal that the thought among the so-called "Elite" is that the Civil War 2.0 that they so desperately are trying to spark will be blamed on White Supremacists wanting to restore Slavery. That is how they are going to want history to report it. (which is ironic since every day is the first day of Year Zero with these progressives)

That explains the BLM angle on their forced adoption of Marxism. Any push back will be performed by racists and thus, because of all the mental/emotional conditioning, it will be perfectly fine to gun down MAGA hat wearing whites in the street or to round them up like Jews in 1930's Germany and Poland.

I keep social media accounts only open for observational purposes. Wisdom dictates that it is foolishness to engage them in practically any matter.

Many of these social media implementations allow one to walk through a user's history of posts.

I particularly enjoy going back to the months before the 2016 election. The thought there was that Trump was going to be indistinguishable from Hillary - so naturally one is supposed to vote for the certain loser.

Many of them got real silent about politics except when something stupid would come up and they would heckle the usual Einstein and Insanity meme - never, of course, providing any solution, just a brain dead attempt to say that there is absolutely no difference in parties.

The Wuhan Death Misasma has changed everything, I have watched the return of the Einstein/Insanity meme slowly turn into a hate Trump and burn his supporters memes.

Now everything from a Non-MAGA person is a constant stream of hate, bitterness, divisiveness, insults, hysteria and fear. The Libertarians are indistiguishable from the Marxists in their over-the-top FUD memes.

You really don't see blackety-black-black 100% African folks being "down with the struggle" all that much. They're usually about as hung up on their Blackness as the average lily-white midwest corn farmer is hung up on their Whiteness. Just shut up and go to work and stop bothering people.

It's always people who are at least half white that are the biggest instigators of racial disharmony. Obama and half of his administration. Kamala Harris. Kaper-fucknuts (who cares how he spells it). Bubba Ga-noose. People who really sweat it about the "paper-bag test".

They know there's a big part of them that's white, too, and they HATE that fact.

Instead of just being a normal, well adjusted American with ancestry from all over the place (like most Americans, it seems), and being proud of all of it, they're twisted into malicious bitterness at the Evil Whiteness in their very makeup that they can't eliminate.

It's pretty freakin' creepy once you start to recognize the pattern, is all i'm saying.

808 722 The big 3M half-mask with P100 filters rides with me everywhere in the car, just in case I am required to wear one ... hilarious overkill, but actually not as uncomfortable as anything made of cloth.

had to wear one of those blue ones in the hospital whenever I left my room, pesky after a few minutes, as someone above also observed.

Mrs IMG spent a week in the hospital and was discharged Sunday. When she got well enough to do some walking outside her room, we took a stroll. Got to the nurse's station and realized we forgot our masks. We just got a negligent hand wave and "don't worry" from one of the nursing staff.

What was consistent was foam in, foam out, mask on in patient room, correctly worn. No mask, no service at the snack bar. Some jobs where you set the example, like security check point and info desk were consistently wearing them correctly.

Now, in other common areas, like hallways? Not so much.

809 621 correction. Over 80 percent of Mcdonald's restaurants are franchises. There are a lot of benefits to the franchise model for the parent company. Who want's to worry about the success of an individual locale or deal with the overhead and staffing for example.


You buy the franchise, McDonald's picks a location and sends you to their school. If the location fails they will buy you a different location. If that fails it's your fault.

McDonald's puts a lot of support into making their franchisees successful.

811 The party line has changed. Just like we went from "no crowds! social distancing!" to "demonstrations are fine because reasons" to "no crowds! social distancing!" All in - what? - three weeks.

Consistency and getting rid of Weasel Word Fauci would garner more support.

I can't work up a nerve over masks, big deal.
Carry one in my back pocket. They want a mask I gotta mask.

I honestly think some of the PTBs want to do what's right but are scared and are dealing with a fickle virus and political scientists.

813 ...arrest warrant for Trump...
The terrorist Islamic regime now terrorizing Iran asks Interpol to arrest Trump.

Isn't Interpol the same entity who has an outstanding arrest warrant for these Islamist terrorists: Fallahian (formerly of judiciary), Khamenei (the supreme leader), and Rafsanjani (now dead)?
Google 1992 Mykonos restaurant assassinations.
These characters were/are fugitives from justice. Now in hiding, they demand justice from their own pursuers? . This is rich.
