Tonight's ONT Is For The Birds

The Name Is Bond. Roger Bond


This is a great story from @right_movies:

Bond. James Bond.jpg

I know he's not often spoken of as anyone's favorite Bond, but from every story I've heard, Moore was a true gentleman and an all around class act – plus he once beat up legendary tough guy Lee Marvin. (Marvin was hung way the fuck over when filming a scene for Shout at the Devil and started to fight for real, Moore calmly put him down. “The guy is built like granite. Nobody will ever underestimate him again." Marvin later said.)


Running Red

Goodbye, Washington DC.


I get the feeling. We're right now in the critical juncture of getting all of the mortgage stuff finalized for the move to Texas, and frankly I'm about to go a little freaking crazy. The lender is demanding a certain tax document, and the IRS, an organization known for it's glacial inefficiency at the best of times, is running at about a quarter speed as all its employees are taking coffee breaks at home due to covid rather than taking coffee breaks in their offices like they normally do. I just may not GET the document in the next 3 weeks. Prayers would be appreciated.


Panic

The true measure of a man is how he reacts under pressure. That and and not dressing up like a little girl (sound on).

Wild In The Streets


Stop me if you've heard this one before: A motorist driving through a crowd of protesters who madly try to get out of the way. We see that all the time now, right? Well, reality is now directed by M. Night Shamalamadingdong because there's a twist to the story.


All At Once, Or What?


Five Women Masturbated Inside An MRI Machine. This Is A Video Of Their Brains During Orgasm

I mean, those things aren't that big, how did they all fit?

Strange, This Black Life Isn't Getting Much Media Play


Prominent Black Trump Supporter Murdered in Milwaukee


Gunned down in the middle of the day. What coverage I have seen has always referred to him as “black Trump supporter. He had a name: Bernell Tremmell. Remember it.

Attack Of The Karens

Ace posted about these social distancing Karens earlier, but he missed this one:

I have no idea what the woman I saying in Spanish, but the Karen's raw screams of rage are typical. The people are, I think, quite literally deranged. And they're holding the rest of us hostage to their unbalanced insanity.

Two For Bluebell

I know she likes these things, which are called doodles, by the way.

I haven't seen her around lately. I'm not saying she hasn't been around, I just haven't noticed her. This one takes a more realistic approach:


Well, I Always Get Up When It Comes On

This is the Antifa terrorist who fired 5 shots at a blocked car in Texas. He missed from about 30 feet. The driver returned fire. He didn't. The terrorist's pronouns are was/were

Luck of the draw, but I got a slim attractive 30ish female (eat ur hearts out boys)...

After ???s about how I wanted it cut, she blurts out "If a Democrat gets into office, we are doomed." No, I had no Trump gear on. "They are all crazy", she adds.

Now that was a fun haircut and conversation, and she got a nice tip at the end.

I love the Trump solution of giving the Federal dollars directly to the parents so they can send them to the school of their choice.

It would break the back of the public teacher unions.

According to one of my brothers, whose wife has been teaching for about three decades at the same public school, that amount around here is a touch over $12k.

A dozen parents could hire a private teacher for that. And the kids learning? Compare it to some online zoom class.

Not to mention the need for kids to socialize and learn people skills.

It's like the Democrat teachers unions have no idea what socialization for kids means.

Sacrificing the future of their own children is fine and dandy for Democrat teachers.

High point of the local news article on this:

"A woman at one point grabbed an officer's baton and he punched her in the face."

Not true.

One of the funniest experimental sections of a scientific paper I ever read was the former gymnast scientist (totally not nurse ratched!) that had sex in an NMR.

The paper won the prestigious IgNobel Award in
2000.

The title was "Magnetic resonance imaging of male and female genitals during coitus and female sexual arousal."

I think this is the link;Papers
Magnetic resonance imaging of male and female genitals during coitus and female sexual arousal

Portland police and Oregon state police have closed off the three blocks of parks adjacent to the Federal courthouse and the police headquarters/jail, which the rioters have been using as a staging area for attacks on the courthouse for the last two months.

For all of Kate Brown and Ted Wheeler's whining about the evil Federal stormtroopers rampaging through the streets of downtown Portland, they had never bothered to secure the area that the rioters were using to gather.

Curious how things can change so quickly for political reasons.

Socialization is important, and it can still be accomplished if you get connected with homeschool groups and take advantage of the various events and gatherings they offer so kids can make friends, get out of the house, do fun stuff, etc. Unfortunately, my homeschool experience was not like that.

192 Probably the weirdest bar I visited: In Elkins, WV there was a Days Inn that was a refurbished hospital. I stayed there because, well, it was Elkins WV and where in hell else can you stay. They had an old wheelchair in the foyer. In my room I could see where the med gas connections had been in the walls. Creepiest place I ever stayed. But they had a cool bar in the basement in what used to be, of course, the morgue. That was really cool in its own way.

Portland police and Oregon state police have closed off the three blocks of parks adjacent to the Federal courthouse and the police headquarters/jail, which the rioters have been using as a staging area for attacks on the courthouse for the last two months. (Two of the blocks are Portland's and one block is Federal.)

For all of Kate Brown and Ted Wheeler's whining about the evil Federal stormtroopers rampaging through the streets of downtown Portland, they had never bothered to secure the area that the rioters were using to gather.

Going up to the mountains for the weekend. Tried to book a massage and they said we had to wear masks for the entire massage. I can barely handle wearing one into a store and you want me to wear one with my face down in the rest? No thanks......grrrrrr So so tired of this crap!

If you haven't seen it, Taiwan News has an animation of what happens downstream if the dam fails.
It's not top quality but it is horrifying because millions of people will not be able to scramble to high ground.
Living here, where taking power generating dams is cool there is zero talk about the many and massive dams being built around the world, often with Chinese backing and design.
This is not going to end well.

293 Favorite bar is the Amvets in Billings. It was a neighborhood bar. Dad would take us there after some sports contest and have burgers. This was before they stopped letting kids in bars.

As we got older and us kids would come back to visit we always start there. The place was cramped and full of cigarette smoke. We'd usually enter through the alley backdoor. Suburban alley where the utilities are run.

If it was busy you'd walk back to the kitchen and grill your own burger.

Last two visits were with all my brothers for the folks funerals.

In the June 23 primary election in NYC, done by mail only, local offices, about 1 in 5 votes has been tossed. In Chicago, a newspaper did a test of 100 mailed ballots, and 3 of them didn't get returned, after they mailed them to a PO Box and went to pick them up.

That's 3% of votes disappearing, and 20% of votes getting tossed.

After the normal rainy season (October), the 3G dam's water level is maxed out at 175 meters.

Current levels are 163 meters, and they have plenty of room to open gates to lower the excesses.

If course things downstream are fucked at the moment. But they'll flood out downstream before they endanger the dam.

Water levels are drawn down from 175m for hydro and irrigation purposes.

The real issue is outflows before the rainy season ends. I have data on outflow rates, but I don't have access to them at the moment.

Anyway, it was a small, ground floor room with lots of comfortable leather seats and a classic NYC bartender. Dark, but with enough soft light to be able to enjoy the surroundings. Great drinks, and it was a successful date, so....

386 I got to thinking about my time as a bouncer in topless clubs, and I remembered my worst night on the job.


One of our dancers, who was named Ronnie Dawn, had become a Penthouse Centerfold about a month or so earlier. It was a Friday evening and I saw her leaving about 10 PM with one of the other dancers. She told me the two of them were going out to do the town and Flirt with guys. I told her to be careful, but, of course, neither of them payed any attention to what I had to say, they were young, and hot, and they knew how to twist men around their little fingers, what was there to worry about.

A couple of years later, I ran into the other dancer, at another club, and asked her about that night. She said the two of them had gone to several clubs and had flirted with a bunch of guys. One of them, who was really hot about Ronnie, was a black drug dealer, with a brand new black BMW.


Ronnie wasn't particularly interested in him, and told her friend "Lets go". Ronnie said she needed to get gas, so they stopped at a Shell station. Ronnie was filling the tank up when a brand new black BMW pulled up beside her. It was the drug dealer, who had followed them when they left. Ronnie told him "No", but he wasn't the kind of guy who took no for an answer, so he shot and killed her.
I asked her if she had told the police that story. She said "Yes, but they didn't seem very interested." Ronnie Dawn's murder has never been solved.

392 Interesting bit of news i just stumbled upon:

the top prosecutor in St Louis County has decided today NOT to charge Officer Darren Wilson with murder.

Six years ago, the Gentle Giant, Michael Orlandus Darrion Brown Jr. (no shit that is his full name) had his life snuffed out before he was able to enter law school. Records indicate he and Dorian Yates were finishing up collecting donations for their local church when he was mercilessly gunned down by white supremacist cop who needed his blood fix for the day.

Anyway, the news article cut to his father, who of course was bleeting about the injustice and the humanity of it all through his golden grill.

Expect the BLM and antifa to use this anniversary as another excuse to rape, pillage and assault.

I thought about it while I was a grad student, and there were rumors of people joining the "2 Tesla Club" but I did not dare make the suggestion to the woman who is now my wife (on the other hand, we are members of the Mile High Club).

450 What's that mean exactly? "Outflows" I take it come through the spillways? And you can control outflows but they can still be hazardous?
Posted by: Blonde Morticia at July 30, 2020 11:33 PM (G51Gf)

Excuse my choices words. Outflow rate is the term used by the database I'm working off of.

The spillways can handle a maximum rate of "x" (I don't have that number in front of me).

As long as the inflows from upstream can be managed, the dam is in no real danger.

The issue is what "x" is, and how long it can be maintained without damage to the spillways.

Additionally, how bad are conditions downstream. They're flooded everywhere already. Maximum discharges will make a bad situation worse.

This year's harvest is lost.

The ability to navigate the Yangtze is, I would imagine, compromised. A lot of the goods we buy from China, come down this river network.

1) A real possibility, and I'm gonna look at those historical outflow rates in the AM.

2) Seeing as they store water up to 175 meters every year, I rate this possibility as low.

3) 185.5 meters is over the top. They would have to experience biblical flooding upstream. Based on the last month's worth of data, I would be hard pressed to think that weather conditions could get any worse than they've been to date. But never say never. And again, the ability to release water in amounts greater than what's coming in from upstream is the wildcard.

Equadoran Navy or Coast Guard *will* show up.

Should they find any Chinese fishing boats in the Galapagos Zone?

They try to force the Chinese Fleet to heave too, and they will SEIZE every single boat that does.

And if the Chinese Boats refuse or try to flee?

The Equadorans *WILL* shoot. They take that Galapagos thing VERY seriously.

And by all accounts, the Equadorans run an unusually competent fleet vs. the usual 3rd World "standard".

Would suck to be a Chinese fisherman, 'bout then. Would suck to be a Chinese fisherman, 'bout now, then or anytime, come to think about it.

The neighborhood they were booted out of is some distance away - they drove there last night.

Since the locals took pictures of Antifa's cars and their license plates as Antifa was fleeing, I expect a lot of unimportant property damage if they try parking those cars in that neighborhood again.

Heya, Jim! Ecuador is actually rather hand-tied over this. They owe money to China so their leverage is limited. Greenpeace, the World Wildlife Federation, and Sea Shepherd are no help. China's fishing fleet is overwhelmingly huge for them. And this isn't the first time they've done it.

It's mostly the sharks China seems to want. I guess they eat a lot of shark meat.

Ordinarily, perhaps. But such flexibility does not extend to The Zone.

Equador considers those islands the Crown Jewel of their National Pride. They might not fight the U.S. Navy over an incident; they're not fools.

But I think they'd calculate the odds of drawing China's emerging fleet out across 10,000 miles of ocean, into Equador's Home Waters, and seeing whose supply lines hold up the longest.

And I don't think Equador would find itself alone in a defense of the Galapagos. It's too Holy a Touchstone for the Usual Suspects to weigh in AGAINST a strong defense.

611 BT'H, to be a good citizen you say you have to wear a mask.

you can't sing in church and you can't see a movie or a concert, you can't go to a funeral. You accept those as a way to show you are a good caring person.

What is your line in the sand, though? Take a mandated but untested vaccine, is that problematic for you? Howabout be locked in your house again without an ending date, is that a problem for you? Have your job closed? Have your friends lose their jobs?
Howabout being forced to wear tracking devices out of concern that you might not be reporting all your contacts, is that a step to far? What restrictions on your life do you think are too much to bear?

At some point you will be pushed too far, if you are not just a glob of supine jelly (and you never have shown that tendency, thank God) but you should do some reflection as to what you think is too much, so you know how to react instead of deciding on the fly whether to knuckle under or be forced.

Their engineers are probably competent enough, but the dam was a huge political project, and the politicians can over-rule the engineers.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at July 31, 2020 12:21 AM (WM+Dr)

618 519 Thank you. And what are the ways in which a dam can fail? I can think of three
----------------------

What I understand about the 3Ganges construction is that they cheaped out and didn't secure the middle of the dam into the underlying granite. Rather it is just sitting on top of it. If you see a recent pic of it, and the middle bows a bit, that's where it is.

As a WA native, and with the many dams on the Columbia River as well as smaller dams on Western WA rivers, I always had an interest in them. As a kid, I found them fascinating. The Grand Coolee Dam is a masterpiece. And very, very safe.

The Chinese Communist Party knew they were cutting corners when they built it. A huge flaw.

Everyone knew it, too. But just like a Blue State governor that has the political power to destroy their state's economy, so does the CCP. All rivers will have rainy seasons, and properly designed dams can be a life saver.

3 Ganges has only been alive for 5 years. This is the first really rainy season it has lived in.

If this dam doesn't burst this year, there is always the next, even rainier season. Because eventually, it's coming.

But the Zone is famous (infamous?) in the sailing world, as waters to be avoided, due to the aggressive nature of the Equadoran Navy/Coast Guard.

I wasn't aware that their diligence had slipped that much over the years.

The U.S. doesn't even have to get directly involved here. Just buck-up Equador to stand firm, with a few loan guarantees or such, here or there.

Google scams all the way around.

A day or two ago, a R US Rep said he has been in office for 10 years, and uses gmail. His father also uses email.
No problems at all, until about a year and a half ago, when he became politically active on an issue Google didn't like.

Suddenly, his father wasn't getting his regular emails any more. He checked, and many of the regulars weren't either.

This is the way of Google in 2020.

Lying, sneaking, conniving against free speech. The Google way.

718 Imagine if there was a proven method to prevent the bug from spreading in the first place, and if it was agreed to follow it.

Posted by: boulder t'hobo



Well, there is exactly zero scientific evidence that masks prevent the spread of viruses, and quaranteening an entire country instead of the proven sick and those in vulnerable populations has never been tried before and has absolutely no scientific evidence backing it as a successful strategy.

Closing the borders completely back on 11/1/2019 might have worked, since SARS-Cov-2 first arrived here around Thanksgiving, but of course even the ChiComs hasn't told anyone about it at that time.

Meanwhile 1.4 million Americans have died of all causes since 2/1/2020, and we know the numbers of CoVid-19 deaths have been inflated by a factor of 10, and not one of the non-CoVid deaths is ever mentioned.

And, let's not forget that we destroyed 40 million jobs, and we expect about 100K additional suicides this year just from that.

Weird. Something isn't adding up.

Posted by: Sharkman, AKA LT ShitBrick, USNR, SC, Ret. at July 31, 2020 12:55 AM (1YlHz)

719 And it doesn't matter. I know the country is dumbed down beyond recognition, especially it's "elites" and institutions, but the only - theoretical, experimental, and as it turns out, incorrect - reason to "mitigate" a viral respiratory epidemic (which you can't really do) is to time-manage case-load into medical facilities.

Period.

End of story.

It's not to "save lives" (other than those lost thru lack of medical capaity). You don't, as Trump stupidly has said all along, "beat" a virus. You manage the fringes of the consequences, and get on.

So even real (as it gets) "mitigation", back in March, was pointless, and since masks play no proven role in mitigation, they were irrelevant then, too.

Of course NOW, it's just the universe doing donuts in the front yard of a dumbed-down, degraded, ignorant, submissive America, to see if they'll go along. And many of them do! Including unfortunately what pass for institutions and government.

And likely what you would have is something like Japan. Maybe at the start you have a rise but then it slows down. The moment you open up things even if you keep needing masks you would start getting the increase. Because its a fucking cold virus and there's no vaccine so unless you shut down the fucking world completely until you guarrantee that no one in the world has it the cases will start going up again without question.

And I'll counter-wager that China raiding Honduran Waters would put a Null and Void onto those terms in a jiffy.

Let's see what happens when the Honduran fleet puts some 40mm Bofors holes into the waterline of about 10% of the Chinese fleet.

This is what's called: "I have altered the deal. Pray I do not alter it further."

Look at it this way. China's navy can be scary as fuck within say, 500 miles of the Chinese coast.

But as the power of light decreases according to the Inverse Square Rule, then similarly, so does "projected" Naval power, when 10,000 miles from their Home Port, and without the legendary logistical support fleet that sails behind every U.S. Task Force.

Let's say a pair of Honduran Cutters begin to cut a swath though the Chinese fleet.

By time any Chinese Aegis Clone destroyers could possibly arrive in Galapagos waters, the Chinese fishing fleet would sail with Davy Jones, and those Ecuadoran Cutters would be safely back in their home port, completely refueled, reprovisioned and rearmed.

So, China would want to call Equador's loans? This is when we buy Equador's loyalty, and unbuckle the Han's "Belt and Road" initiative.

Because more testing is being done in a weekend than in a typical flu season, in its entirety, we *might* have a better estimate for the denominator used to calculate IFR. But probably not. Serology is key to that, not the very poor diagnostic testing going on.

And stratified for age and medical condition, an IFR far below flu, and excluding the majority of the population entirely.

Now, I think if it does happen, they will time the lifting to cover for a massive power grab, the likes of which we have never seen. I cannot tell you how weird that mood lift was. If Trump wins, and I am sure he will, the masks will stay, maybe unless there is large governorship flipping.

Problem with "dying on this hill" is we missed the boat; this had to be killed off early. The damage gets worse, the Stasi ratting and resentment both ways, and fighting back gets harder the longer the hostage situation goes on.

If a Mayor can tell a private business they MUST do something, is there any private property left?

If a Mayor can say you can't go to Church? Well, clearly there is no freedom of Religion.

If a Mayor says you can protest, but not party, how is that Freedom of Association?

Yes. If you look at the geography, it would be a no-brainer. Spanish galleons sailed/rowed up the Rio San Juan, and founded a city at Granada in the 1400's.

And the range of hills between the big lake and the harbor at San Juan del Sur is maybe 1500 feet max elevation, and about 15 miles across. And most of the rock is tropically-weathered andesite that you could excavate without explosives.

But I don't the Chinese agreed to commit to building a canal. They got a long-term concession that gives them exclusive rights. But they also have big money invested in the Panama Canal, so locking up Nicaragua is just closing the door to competitors.

What transparency? The transparency that if they suspect you have it they count you as a positive case? The transparency that so many tests have been shown to be faulty and who knows how many more are out there? The transparency of testing labs reporting 100% infection on tests? The transparency that people that definitely did not die from covid have been counted as deaths, and that the "professionals" have even said that if you think they had covid count it as a positive death even without any test?


There's no transparency going on. Only gaslighting.

And the tepid, sad, meek little mouse voice effort Trump and Co. are putting into the normal schooling issue represents their high-water mark, in terms of intelligently pushing things in a sane direction.

The entire team appear to be clowns - the C19 team - though Redfield (definitely a clown) for some reason has stumbled on the actual science about school-age kids being essentially not part of this picture, nor being transmitters of note (of course he dare not mention that the "risk" to 90% of teachers is - yes - like flu, at most).

The vicious trolling of the NYT reporter mentioned above was on precisely this topic. Iceland did the gold-standard approach - comprehensive sample, total info, sequenced every virus sample genetically - to determine that in fact there was basically no transmission from children to adults.

Of course the NYT idiot was unaware of this.

Not really. There are two ports run by a Hong Kong company, i.e., indirectly by China. (The 5 other ports are run by a Taiwanese, a Singaporean, and a Seattle/Panamanian company.)

I can't remember when the contract on the Hong Kong company ports runs out but it is unlikely to be renewed, given the change in HK's status.

The recent expansion of the canal was done by several European countries, with the Chinese rather conspicuously edged out of that.

Panamanians are very wary of China.

The Chinese (supposed?) interest in Nicaragua is at least in part motivated by resentment of Panama for contracting with the Taiwanese on several endeavors.

Panama does owe China money --- but then, who doesn't?

805 Broseidon, a joke? Must be thinking of another commenter. I've made it clear this is a disaster, not a joke, which has pretty much brought out the worst in the country, from top (very much at the top) to the bottom.

In your situation, *you* have to be careful, no doubt.

Instead of the massive printed-money bailouts, and welfare-for-all, imagine if instead, a sensible epidemiological approach had been followed. This would leave approximately a $zillion for something *useful* - like direct aid to households like yours to assist in isolation of the vulnerable.

Which, of course, would be dwarfed by the real "benefit" of *not* shutting down the most prosperous economy in modern history*.

* voluntary behavior, based on fear and ignorance, and even sometimes informed prudence, would surely have reduced economic activity, but nothing like the artificial crash we've had

808 China has a HUGE fuckin' problem, when the entire world decides to repudiate Chinese debt.

Picture a 1929 crash.

And that's exactly what would happen to any debt held by China.

We're not over-extended to them.

They're over-loaned and over-invested to us, and to everyone else.

Japan *barely* dodged this bullet in the late '80s, and they've not really fully recovered, since.

China is so much this, on steroids.

What, exactly, would be the GOP's message and commitment to voters?

It's August.

Besides "we're not THEM!", is there anything? Bueller?

Message, I mean. Obviously there will be no commitments, however laughably unserious, as in recent cycles. The thing about the collapse of the Dems into idiotic racist totalitarian vandals - the GOP now has literally no pressure or need to stand for anything at all.

An adaptation they were, apparently, born to make.

813 I think "reducing the deficit" and "shrinking the size of government" would be a great, as in hilarious, theme for the GOP this time.

Not because the deficit thing's become easier - we now run annual deficits in the space of a quarter, so cutting *that* wouldn't be a herculean task.

But because it would probably still be taken seriously by much of the GOP electorate.

Hilarious!

822 Here's how the contagion starts in red hamlets. I just heard from a work colleague from work who lives in a beach town of working class people. I want to move outside of Manhattan so I asked her about it. She said it was nice except the people are mostly racists but she and another friend have started a women's group.

If this person (who is perfectly nice in many ways) was an actual friend and not a member of the New Gestapo, I might ask for physical evidence of racism - crosses burning near the hot dog stand, or "Colored" water fountains.

I might ask if maybe its just that these people she dismisses as "racists" are simply occupied with their own lives and don't share her values, obsessions or how they choose to use their time.

Since I need this job, I can't do that...I'm too busy wondering how to finesse the "Structured discussions" they are promising to have about racism for all staff, including part timers like me.

However, this shows me how they operate. They have an instinct/compulsion - for organizing and spreading their message. Normal people get involved in their church or the grandkids or their hobbies and leave everyone else alone...but not these people.

It's hard to combat because how do you organize people to agitate for being normal and leaving other people alone?

So it would be yesterday now that my alarm clock was "Geophysical" in nature as to the 4:30 AM wake up with my bed bouncing and rolling (not like days of yore.....but I digress).

Simply just another reminder of where I live. Good time to check up on the back up water supplies, stashed food stuffs, and out of state contact points. Went through my bug-out stash in my car and found some expired stuff so it was a good drill overall....and I drifted back and remembered the Northridge Ca. Quake of 2004.

Yet, all we are going through right now seems far more important and life altering. Our very country is at stake.

"philanthropists Marc and Lynne Benioff announced that they had donated US$30 million to create a research initiative at UCSF on homelessness."

30 million.

I'd love to know how many hundreds of billions of dollars have been wasted to "research" what everyone inherently knows.

Graduate high school, don't have kids until you graduate, don't be a drug addict, don't be a drunk, find and keep a job, don't blow all your money on stupid sh*t, and maintain a good relationship with your friends and family.

There. 95% of homelessness "research" is solved and it took no more than typing it out.

You can't do much about crazy, which is the last 5%. No, literally. You can't do much about crazy. Mental institutions cannot receive Medicare or Medicaid. Thanks JFK and LBJ!

905 Holy crap. The news agencies are literally reporting that you can't catch the COVID-19s through food. Associated Press:

"Why health experts aren’t warning about coronavirus in food

The CDC and other experts note that the virus is new and still being studied. But they say there’s no evidence yet that COVID-19 sickens people through their digestive systems..."

https://tinyurl.com/y653h6hq

You know. The food other people touch after they adjust their masks, give it to you, and you put directly into your mouth.

That place where you inhale the droplets that everyone is supposed to be wearing a mask over because it's so super deadly and we need to flatten the curve.

Essential?

John Lewis was gonna remain dead even if they were not in attendance.

His remains were gonna get buried even if they were not in attendance,

Since this Wu-Flu circle jerk began, thousands of loved ones have died and been buried without family and friends in attendance due to the group limitations imposed by these little Hitlers.

Yet these assholes sit shoulder to shoulder while listening to Obama blather on in a political trade.

This is something I have actually wondered. Freedom is a big catalyst for innovation, as it diminishes you have a lot of refinement.

I think a lot of libs almost look at the modern day as the apex of what we could be. That is fucking sad.

It was one of the earliest arguments I can remember: my mom arguing with her mother (Grandma) in favor of space exploration. Grandma trotted out the usual 'it costs too much' 'what's the point' while Mom seemed to be trying to describe why and how water is wet.

This is one of those concepts that people either seem to get or they don't: Freedom. Reaching for something greater.

I think a lot of libs almost look at the modern day as the apex of what we could be. That is fucking sad.

It was one of the earliest arguments I can remember: my mom arguing with her mother (Grandma) in favor of space exploration. Grandma trotted out the usual 'it costs too much' 'what's the point' while Mom seemed to be trying to describe why and how water is wet.

Can anyone tell me how to convert an aspx file to a pdf?

According to my cursory search, it can be done through chrome.

Search 'aspx to pdf' in bing.

I am still on the fence. Certainly the use of this as a pretext is planned. However, in the early going, it seemed to me (for what that is worth, nothing) that the Chi-Coms were genuinely spooked by something. Either the unknown of what the hell just happened, or whether it was really a deadly disease is up in the air.
