The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

As recent arrests confirm, a leisurely trustfunded ennui has led unhappy whites - particularly young women and their even more violent transgender comrades, the beneficiaries of a childhood on the Upper East Side and country spreads in Connecticut - to embrace the pathologies that have done so much for Compton. It's the overclass engaging in an underclass minstrel show.Mark Steyn


Quote II

“We can’t have students who decide to do something anyway after they’ve been told that they shouldn’t be doing it,” Gregory Power, Little Miami High School superintendent


Quote III

When CdeBaca made these statements toward me, I felt she was bringing in my race into the issue she had with officers being called to this area. The statements directed at me insinuated I am racist because I am white.”Denver Police Officer Wallace Sam


Quote IV

“The pressure to apologize in an effort to appease one’s tormentors can be tremendous, but do not give into the pressure. If you feel you did no wrong, do not apologize" Princeton University classics Professor Joshua Katz


Quote V

“It’s not a law. There’s too many fucking liberties being taken away from us now … I choose not to wear one. If I get the virus it’s on me, it’s not on anyone else … it’s a piss-take. There’s no need for it … They’re pointless.” former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher

A piss poor broadcast team and a league which spits on a majority of its fans = Go woke and broke.

Capping a season of record-low Monday Night Football ratings, ESPN’s first Christmas NFL game in 11 years was a lump of coal.

monday night footballRaiders-Eagles scored a 5.9 rating and 11.7 million viewers on ESPN’s Monday Night Football Christmas night, down 42% in ratings and 38% in viewership from Week 16 last year (Cowboys-Lions: 10.1, 18.9M). ESPN’s Nielsen ratings now include streaming viewership on TV devices; comparisons are to last year’s TV+streaming numbers.

The Eagles’ win, which peaked at a 6.7 and 13.4 million from 9:30-10 PM ET, was the lowest rated Week 16 MNF game since Broncos-Chargers on Christmas Eve 2007 (5.1). It was the least-watched since Falcons-Lions in 2012, which aired on a Saturday night to avoid Christmas Eve (9.7M).

Of the 14 Christmas NFL games this century, it ranks tenth in ratings and ninth in viewership. Compared to last year’s Christmas night game, Broncos-Chiefs on NBC, ratings fell 44% from a 10.6 and viewership 45% from 21.4 million.

Twitter Suspends Account Of Chinese Scientist Who Published Paper Alleging Covid Was Created In Wuhan Lab

On Sunday afternoon we asked how long before the twitter account of the "rogue" Chinese virologist, Dr. Li-Meng Yan, who yesterday "shocked" the world of establishment scientists and other China sycophants, by publishing a "smoking gun" scientific paper demonstrating that the Covid-19 virus was manmade, is "silenced."

12 Reasons Science Shows Conservative Women Have The Best Sex

BuzzFeed reports on a new study of 19,000 people in five European countries that found ‘very right-wing’ people are the most satisfied with their sex lives. Oh, we know.


James Ball (really? He has the sex beat?) at BuzzFeed reports on a new study of 19,000 people in five European countries that found “very right-wing” people are the most satisfied with their sex lives. Center-right people, however, were slightly less satisfied than centrists, and it all went down from there.

2020 continues to be a dumpster fire and in this case maybe a toilet fire. Taco Bell Has A Wine Called Jalepeño Noir That They Want You To Pair With A Chalupa

On Monday, Taco Bell announced that beginning this week the chain would roll out their first official wine, dubbed Jalapeño Noir and — Wait a minute… Really? Is this why the 7-Layer Burrito and the Mexican Pizza had to die, so Taco Bell could throw their hat into the wine space?!

Well… whatever. This year has us absolutely fried anyway.

Jalapeño Noir, which is a 2018 Pinor Noir and not, as the name would suggest, a Jalapeño infused wine, will be releasing exclusively in the Canadian Taco Bell market beginning September 16th, according to Food & Wine, alongside Taco Bell Canada’s Toasted Cheesy Chalupa.

“The rich taste and crunchy texture of the beloved Toasted Cheesy Chalupa complement notes of wild strawberry, cherry, and beetroot in this silky red wine,” a spokesperson for Taco Bell told Insider. The Cheesy Chalupa features melted, aged cheddar cheese toasted on a chalupa shell with seasoned beef, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, and sour cream. It’s tough to say if it really will taste good alongside a glass of Jalapeño Noir because who in the world would think to try that?

Good bye Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. A virtual parade? How f*cking exciting.

The iconic Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade will not be live this year because of coronavirus risks — instead, viewers will be able to “feel the spirit and joy of that day” on television and online, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday.

“One of the most beloved events every year is the Thanksgiving Day Parade. I always want to express my appreciation to everyone at Macy’s. They are extraordinarily civically-minded. … We saw what they did on July 4 with an amazing fireworks display,” de Blasio said at a press conference.


Why doesn't de Blasio virtually FOAD?

We have watched Portland officials acquiesce to the lawless Antifa crowd. It's disgusting to see felons walk free from police custody. The feckless court officers of Portland could learn something from Pennsylvania Magisterial District Judge Bruce Roth

Protests were peaceful Monday night in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, after a local judge ordered anti-police rioters arrested Sunday night to be held on million-dollar bails. Unrest erupted Sunday in the small city of about 60,000 residents after a Lancaster policeman shot 27-year-old Ricardo Miguel Munoz. Activists with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement spread a false rumor that police had “murdered” an innocent black teenager, a claim that was disproven when police quickly released bodycam video showing Munoz charging the officer with a knife.

While the video may have played a role in discouraging further unrest in Lancaster, the suspects arrested in Sunday’s riot were still sitting in jail, thanks to Magisterial District Judge Bruce Roth:

A Lancaster County judge set bail at $1 million for some of the protesters arrested for arson and riot-related charges early Monday morning following the police shooting of 27-year-old Ricardo Munoz.

Their early hits included 'Just What I Needed', 'My Best Friend's Girl' and 'Good Times Roll'. Their 1984 ballad 'Drive' was used as background music for footage of the Ethiopian famine, and its re-release as a single after Live Aid helped raise money for the cause.

55 My current conspiracy theory is that the fires in Oregon were set by arsonists for the sole purpose of forcing the federal government to declare the region a natural disaster area and free up funds to allow the state to balance its budget.

This is informed by the desperate special legislature meetings, the refusal of Trump to place COVID release, and the declaration on last Tuesday and Wednesday that "none of the fires were arson caused" before any investigation could be even started.

Kate has driven her state into bankruptcy, and Wheeler has single handedly destroyed the businesses in Portland that might have survived. If they can't back up their promises for free money for their allies, who knows what might happen.

But seriously. Lambo makes tractors. Bring on the tools.

But there are people who won't invest in Mcdonalds because they say the foods sucks. If that is your criteria, hire someone to manage your investments or invest in a good mutual fund.

81 Ok, this texas MoMe thing. Is anybody actually flying to the Dallas international airport? I'm hearing about this dallas love field thing, but when I looked at flights I might as well be traveling to some village in south america with a pilot wearing a leather skull cap and a plane full of wandering livestock while sitting next to indiana frigging jones. There are no direct flights there, or any flights from any airport within expedition range of me. Short question, what the hell is wrong with flying to the Dallas international airport, because that looks like what I have to do.

for some reason the wine guys tm. say you should go with a Spanish Rioja. I hope like hell they are not saying that because Spain has a tangential relationship to Mexico. I have not found it to be a very good pairing but you will see that recco around the web. The two cuisines could not be more different even though they use a few of the same terms like tortilla.
I would go with something with a bit of sweetness. Maybe a chilled Lambrusco or one of these Godawful Millennial "red blends" But the red blends mostly suck so forget that. The problem is if this food is spicy, it will make any tannic wine seem more astringent.

I am not saying I don't drink wine with Mexican food because I really like wine. But beer is the better choice for most. If i only drank beer with Mexican food, I would probably be ten pounds lighter.

134 Tore is one of those contractors (allegedly) that had access to everything ... and was a main character of ShadowGate. I find her interesting ... she just did a discussion with a Middle East and Islam expert ... pretty enlightening for me, on the different factions and some misconceptions.


One point they got to, that while Erdogan wants to form a caliphate, the real Muslims would never accept him. A little at the end about Obama trying to act like (or be perceived as) the 12th imam, but he also would never be accepted by real Muslims.

lots of interesting detail on the region's current disruptions and conflicts, including background ... (I listened at 1.5X speed, which is a nice tool for most discussions or talks.) They both thought there were pretty serious matters quickly coming to a head in the region ... which maybe are advancing/forcing some of the current agreements.

same reason. But that reminds me, they often suggest a semi sweet, not full on sweet Riesling with Chinese food. It is to counter the hot spice and other strong flavors and sauces. Same problem with Indian food, Really the beer is the best play but you can try a Riesling if you don't like beer. I could see a semi sweet cider working too.

Thanks for the ONT, MisHum. Loved the song behind the pic. Never heard it before. And of course the Ric Ocasek song. I played that a lot the day they announced he had died. I have a few of his solo albums. I always saw The Cars when they were nearby. Great shows, great music.

But there are people who won't invest in Mcdonalds because they say the foods sucks. If that is your criteria, hire someone to manage your investments or invest in a good mutual fund.

182 Christopher Knight - the art critic for the Los Angeles Times, and winner of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for criticism, is upset.

It seems that after listing to BLM, and attending "white fragility" seminars, that museums are starting to sell their valuable paintings painted by dead white guys, so they can use the money to "diversify" their collections.

In 2018, the Baltimore Museum of Art sold works by Warhol, Kline, Rauschenberg, and others. In 2019, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art sold a Rothko for $50 million.

And now, the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse is selling one of the first Jackson Pollock paintings at auction in a couple of weeks. It's expected to get $16 million.

Knight's all in favor of "diversity", of course, but he says selling paintings is not the way to go about it.

I dunno - I bet you can buy a lot of paintings by left-handed disabled Latina lesbians for $50 million.

Besides, the museums are just being prudent by selling the paintings before the mobs invade the museums to destroy them, which is inevitable if this goes on much longer.

Knight has all the political views that you would expect - he's written articles comparing Trump to Napoleon, and has proposed replacing Trump Tower in New York with a coronavirus memorial.

Yet he continues to have the fascist belief that art has value over and above the skin color of the person who painted it, and what genitalia they have, which is obviously incorrect.

He's a middle-aged white guy, who needs to be cancelled. I assume that the Times will fire him for his fascist beliefs, and Antifa needs to doxx him, so the mob can show up at his home.

199 I decided to stroll down memory lane, and take a look at National Review's Against Trump editorial, from Jan 2016.

This passage stuck out:

Trump nevertheless offers a valuable warning for the Republican party. If responsible men irresponsibly ignore an issue as important as immigration, it will be taken up by the reckless. If they cannot explain their Beltway maneuvers - worse, if their maneuvering is indefensible - they will be rejected by their own voters.
If they cannot advance a compelling working-class agenda, the legitimate anxieties and discontents of blue-collar voters will be exploited by demagogues. We sympathize with many of the complaints of Trump supporters about the GOP, but that doesn't make the mogul any less flawed a vessel for them.

Funny, I don't remember NR making a compelling case for any of these issues that actually animated the GOP base - except maybe Krikorian's articles about immigration.

Looking back at this four years later, it's incredible that NR wanted a party that advocated for constitutional government, marriage and the right to life, and Trump gives them two out of three (ok, a solid one for #3, but an E for Effort on #1. Nobody's perfect on #2) and NR just shrugs.

Pathetic.

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at September 15, 2020 10:38 PM (9Om/r)

DFW sucks mostly because of Dallas traffic and roads, and I think the airport roads are a clusterfk. Salty and Hrothgar have braved the wilds before and may be more helpful about navigating it than I am. They picked up Jewells and LadyL iirc.
On the plus side, the North exit will take you to 635 which is a loop road and will get you all the way to I-20, which then connects to I-45.
You really need to be here next month to see all the shooty things to play with!

I know OR is bizarre but, seriously?


There is a specified protocol for responding to major disasters (necessary, since you have a lot of different agencies involved), with a quasi-military chain of command.

The Incident Commander runs things, and I think the fire marshal went into the burn area without getting permission from the Incident Commander or one of his designated underlings first.

Posted by: Anachronda at September 15, 2020 10:58 PM (CJTvK)

is that what started this? I really need to start reading threads from the top down.

Jimmy Johns came out with a "French Style" sandwich a year or two back and also had a wine to pair with it. The sandwich was pretty good though no one in the store had heard of the wine and they sure as hell had none to sell. I think a lot of these things are stunts and I doubt many will be buying wine from Taco Bell. And if you do, as the preacher said in Blazing Saddles, "You're on your own!"

Posted by: Quint at September 15, 2020 10:55 PM (JCBMS)

Practically.

In pre-Wuhan Flu times I make frequent appearances at DAL. Delta uses one gate (#15, IIRC) on occasion, for one or two flights, Alaska uses two, as I think they bought out or merged with Virgin America. Out of the 20 gates, 17 or 18 are used by Southwest.

One thing that Southwest did, via its business model, was save some smaller airports from the wrecking ball. Without Southwest, and their insistence at being located close to city centers (Denver notwithstanding, and they left there in 1986 and returned only in 2009), this allowed smaller airports like HOU (Hobby) and DAL (Love Field) and MDW (Midway) to remain open. Under any other circumstances they should have been replaced by IAH, DFW and ORD respectively.

DFW is actually further away from Corsicana by some distance. IF you can I recommend flying into DAL. Whereas DAL is just north of downtown Dallas, DFW is actually right between Dallas and Fort Worth. In fact, it is actually in Tarrant County (the county seat of which is Fort Worth). It's an easier shot out of DAL - leave the airport, turn left on Mockingbird Lane, drive straight down until you hit I-35E, head south and exit for U.S. 75, the Woodall Rogers Fwy, which will become I-45 and will take you right into Corsicana. DFW is more of a bitch and as is said by other posters is more traffic laden.

If you fly SWA you go to DAL; if you fly AA you go to DFW.

Yup, daylight. The funny thing is how the scenery changes as soon as you cross into texas. The best part of arkansas was this sign on the highway when you get into Hope, and the sign says welcome to Hope, birth place of bill clinton, and it was littered with bullet holes. I drove past it twice a year and there would be more bullet holes than the last time. They eventually changed it, and sure enough over the next year or so it's shot full of holes again. I never could figure out if it was a group effort, or the same crazy mofo getting tanked up and blasting it every time he past it coming home from the bar. lol

TN was a pain if you only had normal radio. So many mountains and a very poor radio signal. Arkansas I am sure is nice but not so much on the highways. You pretty much can only be doing to things on the interstate, drive towards Little Rock and drive away from Little Rock.

314 On cutting the cord.

I'm an odd one in that regard, since I haven't had TV in my home since the 1970's. We have no TV, no radio, no newspapers. We have books, and we have the internet. There is no commercially produced artwork on our shelves or walls. All the sculpture, paintings, and graphics are either my work, my wife's work, or the work of our close friends.
Ever since the Great Fuckening of 2020, we have provided a weekly place of refuge for our close friends. They all come over Friday evenings for BBQ, drink, smoke, and laughter. No maskatroons invited. Sometimes my wife's friends bring the guitars, and there is live music.
I'll say this. Once you go TV free for a while it radically changes how you see the feed. The stuff that people are soaking their brains in is more toxic than you can realize. Every time I walk into a burger joint, or a business that has one running I feel like I've stepped into a scene from a bad science fiction movie. It is horrifying on many levels.

DFW sucks mostly because of Dallas traffic and roads, and I think the airport roads are a clusterfk. Salty and Hrothgar have braved the wilds before and may be more helpful about navigating it than I am. They picked up Jewells and LadyL iirc.
On the plus side, the North exit will take you to 635 which is a loop road and will get you all the way to I-20, which then connects to I-45.
You really need to be here next month to see all the shooty things to play with!

The best thing about dfw is the Main Street BBQ in Euless. It's on the south end of dfw. Only open for lunch on Fridays. Last time i was ther (2005) $10 was all you needed for death by bbq from a 3 time world champine pork ribs and beef brisket chef.

An interesting thing, which I will leave for the Moron Horde to draw their own conclusions, is this:

I took class at a local range this weekend, early in the morning. (Yeah, I shoulda posted in Weasel's gun thread Sunday. So sue me). The range was in a suburb that is very much a majority white community. When our advanced handgun course was done, the next class started coming in to the classroom. They let us know they were there for the next class, a state-mandated class to get their concealed carry permit. Being good firearm aficionados, me and the few guys from the class stayed a few minutes between classes to chat with the newbies and welcome them to the community of free citizens who take responsibility for their own defense. Had a very pleasant interaction with them, and went on our way. Every single member of that concealed carry class was minority.

So, yeah, I think the silent majority is waking up.

I sat through a seminar on Incident Response once.

You don't want freelancers wandering into the fire zone without the knowledge of or approval of the Incident Commander, even if they are the state fire marshal.

Interestingly, most of the training for incident response is in standardizing communications - I'm sure a couple of dozen agencies are working on the Riverside Fire about ten miles away from my house, many of whom don't usually work together.

You need to establish standardized communications protocols so people don't misunderstand each other in a very stressful situation.

JWM, our household has only been without a TV in about 15 years, but I feel the same way you do.

What's most interesting about this is that once you get rid of a TV, you are unplugged from the rhythms of mainstream society.

You get no advertising buildup to major motion picture releases, or sporting events - including, and especially, the Super Bowl. As a result, you're oddly calm while others around you are getting psyched for the Big Event(s).

I guess that the Horde is my entertainment, most days.

359 The acting troop result also puts paid to the notion that Trump "lost" the debates. In fact Trump won the debates fairly decisively and he didn't do it with the applause lines. That's why IMO there were so many late breakers for Trump in 2016 despite the prepaid "scandals".

Trump is actually incredibly disciplined and skilled at debate. If you believe otherwise, then you have either been suckered by the media, or Trump's manner, which does somewhat obscure his Hanzo sword intellect.

I am pretty damn sure that China produces and drinks more beer than any other country. Not per capita of course but they drink a lot of beer. They only drink a tiny amount of wine really. In Asia, including Japan and South Korea, it is really all about beer.

It was always funny to me that everyone of these countries drinks a tonne of pale lager like the American style beer so many foreigners make fun of us for drinking. Even in Spain and France you are more likely to see people at a bar drinking pale lagers than red wines and Sherries.

364 Speaking of shittypastate roads, try taking Route 50 across West Virginia to get to D.C. The roads were ok, but what looks relatively straight on a big map is actually a series of squiggly lines that convinced me that the layout was designed by getting Robert Byrd drunk and having him draw the highway. At I-79, I wised up and drove up to Maryland where I caught I-64 southeast. Oy vey.

371 on breitbart rt'd by DonJr

A Southwest Pennsylvania sheriff has deflected to the Republican Party from the Democrats, saying he feels out of place in his former party.

"It was a really difficult decision and I've thought long and hard about it, but I feel I stand for the ideals of the Republican Party platform more than the Democrats today," Westmoreland County Sheriff James Albert stated, according to The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.

"I've been a lifelong Democrat, but a conservative Democrat at that," he added. "I'm pro-life, a strong supporter of the Second Amendment, a lifetime member of the NRA (National Rifle Association) and, today, I feel my ideals are closer to the Republican Party than Democrats."

Albert, who was elected sheriff last year, switched over to the Republican Party on Monday.

High Five. We had a head start. left from Cody, Wyoming.

It was April 1985. The aurora borealis was crazy, the whole trip up. We saw the lights every night, even in northern Montana outside from Great Falls.

Fucking cool as hell. And aside from a few beers one day near Calgary, we were stone sober the whole way up.

Plus I had to push start the truck every morning because the battery was bad.

Knight has all the political views that you would expect - he's written articles comparing Trump to Napoleon, and has proposed replacing Trump Tower in New York with a coronavirus memorial.

Yet he continues to have the fascist belief that art has value over and above the skin color of the person who painted it, and what genitalia they have, which is obviously incorrect."

Perhaps he could rehabilitate himself by curating a show titled "Entartete Kunst" featuring works by white people like Hopper, Homer and Sargent.

406 A millennial woman called into Rush today and made a great comment about the radicalism of young women. She said that many of her fellow millennial females were raised without dads in their lives and the K-12 teaching staff is overwhelmingly female. So when these kids get to college, they very easily fall under the sway of leftist male professors, because they are the first father figures in their lives.

Rush said that he would have to think about that, it hadn't occurred to him and thanked her politely. I wanted to call in and tell him that comment was very astute.

I had a good dad but I still idolized 2 male professors when I went to college. One was handsome and so there was a sexual component to it, but he was also an excellent, knowledgeable history teacher. The other was not attractive physically, but he was also a great teacher, who made Shakespeare come alive for me. Now, these were old school profs who did not bring their political beliefs up in the classroom. I don't know what their politics were, although they were probably libs, since most college professors are. I had some very good female teachers as well, especially in hs, but I didn't idolize them in quite the same way. I think the woman on the line with Rush was right in saying that the combo of male authority and knowledge (or what these kids think is knowledge) is a powerful force.

The difference is that I idolized profs who were devoted to passing on Western Civ, not tearing it down.

Late tonight. I didn't see the President and George on ABC, but saw some highlights on Ingraham and pretty much what I expected, lefties ganging up on him.

It was a brilliant political move, IMO.

His base is incredibly loyal. Now, he is hunting for votes everywhere else.

What I saw was that Trump was calm, aware, listening seriously to all questions, even the hostile ones (which was pretty much all of them) and it kicked the notion that he was a crazyman in it's face. This couldn't be the #OrangeManBad that everyone has kept warning about for 4 years, could it?

He went on to speak to people who never get a chance to hear him talk for 20 minutes, unless Lemon, Tapper, or Maddow changed the meaning of his words.

A lot of people have never heard what he said, that we have heard many, many times. For millions, it was the first time that they heard cornerstone policies of his administration.

PDT got free access to millions of voters tonight, and he responded in complete control, yet listening and caring to his interviewers.

That's My President.

Brilliant.

408 Is anybody actually flying to the Dallas international airport? I'm hearing about this dallas love field thing

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at September 15, 2020 10:38 PM (9Om/r)


Dallas Love Field used to be THE airport in the DFW area - about 50 years ago. They built DFW Airport because Love Field was not able to handle any expansions. *Everyone* (except Braniff) switched to DFW. It became THE American Airlines hub (like Atlanta is for Delta), and was built to handle the heyday of airlines.

When Braniff basically went under (they're technically still around, but I doubt you'll find any flights on them), Love Field became even more of a ghost town.

Trust me, you want to go into DFW. It has easy access to the highways that go between Dallas and Fort Worth as well as the highways that go around them. The DFW Metroplex has moved away from Love Field over the decades.

(FYI, I *loved* flying Braniff when I was a kid. They were sortof Southwest before Southwest was. I sat in the cockpit on more than one occasion on a Braniff jet, and the stewardesses were fantastic.)

School of Bif,

When the dog has a bone, let the dog chew on it in peace. The cat will get growled at for waanting a sniff, but as long as there is no violence, let the dog chew and growl. They'll finish eventually, and you'll still have a dog if you havent driven it away for growling at the cat.

Bth, don't mean to call you a dog, it's an alogory (alagory?). You're growling. Gnaw quietly. Finish your good bone. Then come back inside. The cat is pissed at you, but is only hissing and swishing the tail. Remember all cats are asshoe. And will generally hiss and spit just because.

428 392 without a doubt the airport I liked least was Newark. And i have been to the Athens airport. DFW is fine though big as hell. If you are not changing flights I doubt that matters too much.

As a general rule, blue state airports suck.

EWR is...OK. (One thing I appreciated in regards to EWR was that one time when I was trying to get to my gate, and the security lines were full, one TSA gal was shooing everyone to different lines. I showed her my ID and ran me off then stopped me. "Did you just show me a military ID?" I did. So she had me go through the lightly populated crew line...and TSA there was actually semi-polite. So I appreciated that.)

BOS and SFO SUCK. In the latter case, I cleared CBP and security in YVR and would stop at SFO for my connection to TX. All good, right? WRONG. The flight dropped us off at a gate where we would have to clear effing TSA. And the one gate to do it was MOBBED. I lucked out in not missing my flight.

And back then (200, I figured SFO, near the heart of the tech world, would have Wifi! HAH! They gave it away for FREE at YVR, with good conections, but there was NOTHING at SFO!

As for BOS, I was connecting there on another flight out of Canada. I cleared everything at YHZ, and got to Logan. The Air Canada section was packed like sardines and I could barely get out, and then I had to walk to the next terminal for my connecting flight. Which meant walking outside and clearing security AGAIN. I was not impressed by that place at all.

And is Trump smart enough to go into the debate having "read their book"? Of course he is.

He also was straight in talking about McCain, admitting that he didn't like him and "told him to his face."

He also reiterated that he is NOT anti-LEGAL immigration.

He owned the last half-hour too and probably persuaded a lot of Wine Moms that he could be very empathetic.

One night we stopped to snooze alongside the highway somewhere west of White Horse. Two vehicles passed the whole time, both long-haul trucks. The sky was awash with stars, and the Aurora made it's appearance, like it had the whole trip. otherwise, silent, and imposing. The late rising quarter moon hit the St. Elias Mountains.

Saw a feral horse. Still had a very frayed rope around its neck.

Well.

The Busch family stole well known beer names from Europe (trademark protection was weak in the 19th century).

Budweiser is from Czech, (České Budějovice) and their beer is better.

Michelob was also stolen, but that brewery went out of business after WWII.

455 Dallas Love Field used to be THE airport in the DFW area - about 50 years ago. They built DFW Airport because Love Field was not able to handle any expansions. *Everyone* (except Braniff) switched to DFW. It became THE American Airlines hub (like Atlanta is for Delta), and was built to handle the heyday of airlines.

When Braniff basically went under (they're technically still around, but I doubt you'll find any flights on them), Love Field became even more of a ghost town.

Trust me, you want to go into DFW. It has easy access to the highways that go between Dallas and Fort Worth as well as the highways that go around them. The DFW Metroplex has moved away from Love Field over the decades.

(FYI, I *loved* flying Braniff when I was a kid. They were sortof Southwest before Southwest was. I sat in the cockpit on more than one occasion on a Braniff jet, and the stewardesses were fantastic.)
Posted by: GWB at September 15, 2020 11:35 PM (1XOEC)

When I first went through DAL in 2000 it was like entering a throwback machine. It was an old airport, and it showed.

About 10 years ago if you went through DAL you saw the massive renovations it underwent, and indeed, you couldn't do much there due to the renovations.

But around...I'd say, 2012 or so, they were done, and DAL is actually quite a nice airport now. It holds its own with DFW. You can walk from one end of DAL to the other in five minutes, its real easy to get around in, which is helpful because if I fly there on SWA and have a short connection time, I don't worry nearly as much because the gates are close. If I stop there at Gate 1 and my flight is at Gate 20, no problem.

DFW is a nice airport, don't get me wrong. There is nothing wrong with going there. It's just the getting out of there and hitting I-635 or I-30 that is off putting. That's where your problems really begin. (That, and flying out of the panhandle, the flight snarls tend to happen there, not at DAL.)

1. Trump is a horrible human being (an impossible narrative to put to rest)

That's all they had going into 2020.

So by pure happenstance and a shitload of deviousness and planning, the commies CREATED whole cloth, two narratives for themselves. "Health" and "Unity".

By trying to make Trump the candidate of sickness and division. It's all totally created by them - but they refuse to stray from these three narratives, as you see from their limited reporting on the historic Peace Accords.

is a better beer. I think it was around the year 2000 when they were
finally allowed to sell it here under the name Budvar. It is a good
beer but I rarely see it around these days. It is a niche product but
not a bad one.

I am
no student of the American Budweiser but there is a story there to be
told. I believe they were the first to start shipping their beer on ice

Maybe they've gotten away with so much for so long - that they really believe they're own bullshit that we're all just GOPe, and will just lay our own kin down for them when the time comes.

If so then holy fuck are these rat bastards in for the fucking surprise of the century. And I'm not talking about an election.

A bunch of spoiled, know nothing, crazy, true believers. The education system has failed them. Their parents raised them to behave this way. And here we are...

I recall riding through Arkansas and it reminded me of the Valley here in VA in some ways. I don't remember seeing any weird, old, creepy trees, though. I liked it out that way. I thought that state looked pretty nice. No idea what it's like now.


Benjamin Orr. Yep. His death was a gut punch. Peart's was worse. Ocasek came out of nowhere. It's sad. I find myself going back to "old" music. Been on a Chicago and KISS binge this week so far. Last week it was Big Head Todd and The Monsters.

finally allowed to sell it here under the name Budvar.


An agreement was signed in 1921 between the American (fake) and the Czech (original) Budweiser/Budvar producers.

They divided up the world by country.

They finally agreed to forget that agreement.

The Czechs will never allow Budweiser USA (which is no longer US owned) to take over the Original (they have tried).

It is considered a National Asset, not for sale to foreigners.

Boulder, I remember info about this virus in China being leaked before cases began to be officially counted in the CVG generals and social media.
1. China and the CCP acted guilty as hell. They changed their story at least 7 times. One story was it came from space. They never blamed the US military from that time period in October or Fort Dedrick. They would have if it was even plausible, and they never did
2. The info early on was China had been studying and conducting gain of function on SARS and other corona viruses since 2003.
3. The Wuhan lab was not secure and an accident waiting to happen. Outside countries begged China to allow them and us build it or at least offer consultations, and they refused. There were even i tires that leaked out of fans being used on BioLevel 3 by the Chinese
4. China has been open and on the record in speeches and white papers and books about shifting from a nuclear based WMD program to biological post 9/11 because they have the strategic advantage via their 1.3 billion population versus 330 million in America
5. China hid the evidence, sent millions of nationals to collect and hoard PPE from other countries to send back home. They also sent nationals out to spread it to Europe and North America.
6. It is protocol for them to behave that way in case of an accident because they have the population advantage.
7. The workers in the lab are paid poorly and have hygiene issues. They have been known to take home pigs to eat at home from the lab, not properly discard test animals, and sell them to the wet market 7 miles away. The story that is consistent is that a bat infected a worker through a bite or urine/feces. The worker then went to the wet market not knowing they were infected. But who really knows, China and CCP acted guilty from day one.

I can see this being done out of Wuhan to collapse the global economy, more consolidation of wealth at the top, weaken the West, begin regional wars, ect. There was that Harvard professor arrested for working on the CCP payroll and sending samples. Also in Canada, Chinese Nationals were caught stealing and sending samples of SARS and other bio level 4 back to China.

What do you think?

Bonus: You can plonk *your* chair right on down n' sit with any group or gathering or by the fire pit, food, or firewater.

But if you're looking to land that (hopeful) random empty seat, you'll have to plonk YOU on down at wherever that seat is, and not attach "mobility" to said point of loafage.

There's *almost* enough open seating there for everyone.

Almost.

This is not to complain. Hell, Rancher Bob and his crew kick major ass on assembling all of the hospitality there, and Ben Had earns Eternal Kudos for all she does.

But do BRING your chairs.

555 Sooo.... not engaging on all these engaging threads of conversation... here's my Food Thread entry for the evening.

Spent Sunday night down at my Mom's in BigCity. Ordered out Indian food (from my favorite businessman in the world). Milady and I got the leftovers to take home.

This afternoon, Milady suggested hot dogs for lunch. At my ingenious culturally-appropriating suggestion, she grilled the dogs, then chopped them up, and added them to re-heated Aloo Mater (peas & potatoes). With rice.

Then, this evening, for dinner, I asked Milady, do we have any more of your (great, delicious) home-made gyros left? Yes? Well, how about having that with some of the Saag Paneer (spicy spinach and farm cheese - like Feta). Gyros, Saag Paneer, and rice. Cultural combo cuisine for the win!

Think I'll see if I can find something for Milady and me to watch before bedtime. Y'all will be okay without me looking after you, right? No peeing in the pool. No badgering the cobs. No pants or masks allowed.

.....

The problem for the left is that much of the country is now immune to their psyops.

Nobody at all under 30 watches a network. None listen to NPR. None read a newspaper.

They were more likely to listen to Jon Stewart, but his replacement is a cross between Ali G and Samantha Bee, he has no standing the way Stewart did. Cobert is now just a late night clown dancing for nickels for the 68 and older crowd in New Yawk City that still watch.

The media machine is basically gutted.

Yes, the woke-mob controls Twitter. But even that is a dying platform.

What's worse for them is that Trump is the most counterculture figure in the country. Forget what you see in the streets of Portland, there are a lot of Trump youth, a fair share of Hispanics, and even a marginal amount of blacks, at least comparatively speaking.

565 433 Another thing the so-called "town hall" does - although it's possibly down on the list of reasons Trump did it - is it very likely telegraphs the various liberal lines of attack for the debates.

Ask yourself - are they so consumed with hate and stupidity as to remove their own element of surprise? Of course they are.

And is Trump smart enough to go into the debate having "read their book"? Of course he is.
Posted by: ... at September 15, 2020 11:42 PM (0y8vG)

Ellipsis, that is a brilliant point.

This is why Trump talks to everyone, and why it's to his benefit that his presidency is the most transparent ever - leaks, tweets and all.

We the people need to know how our president thinks about the world, and the daily events that take place in it. I don't want to know about the real top secret stuff, but I want to know the thinking behind our response to world events. It benefits the world to have a good guess as to how America would respond to things before they happen. Secrecy, 'tight ships', no-drama White House offices do not help us.

Future administrations, and Republicans in general, would benefit from being more open, and more willing to take on all comers like Trump does.

And since the CCP probably has a target on her back, I'll give her the benefit of the doubt.

What is needed is to have her on CNN or CBS, so people see it and talk about it. Yeah, I know, I'm dreaming for news organizations to actually report the news.

592 This paragraph is stuck right in the middle of today's agreement between Israel and United Arab Emirates:

"Recognizing that the Arab and Jewish peoples are descendants of a common ancestor, Abraham, and inspired, in that spirit, to foster in the Middle East a reality in which Muslims, Jews, Christians and peoples of all faiths, denominations, beliefs and nationalities live in, and are committed to, a spirit of coexistence, mutual understanding and mutual respect;"

I will bet this was a pivotal point that was made very early on in the negotiations: "We are all brothers, sons of Abraham. Do we continue endlessly reprising Cain killing Abel, or do we recognize our shared bloodline and start making great big greasy piles of money together while the fucking "palestinian" inbreds continue spiraling into self-inflicted Gehenna?"

Okay, I may have embellished a bit, but the point stands. Whomever had the idea to point 5,000 years back to Abraham to make peace today is a genius.

I learned a bit about that recently. Too bad that company is super duper woke. Last time i checked their website, there was little on the front page that told me what they did for a living.

As an aside. There is a company called MGP that used to be called LDI. They produce booze in mass quantities in Lawrenceburg Indiana. They sell their booze by contract to people who slap their own label on it. They never talk out of turn but all you have to do it check the bottle for "distilled in Indiana" There are some big names that sell their stuff, particularly the rye's.

That company is the old Seagram's distillery before the kids of that family ran the business into the ground.

Little LCD called me earlier this evening and is taking me out to Jak's Steakhouse in West Seattle tomorrow. And boat brother is coming up from a half hour south and driving. And good buddy Jeff is coming, too

And a business thing I've been working on, seemingly forever, took a step to get off center and moving forward again.

And Trump kicked butt in enemy surroundings, on live TV.

741 Reynspooner or Kahala only for Hawaiian shirts. Cotton, most of them don't need ironing - in fact they're the only shirts I've had that you can wear, say, 2 or 3 times on a trip, and they look fine/same all the way through.

I think my "newest" one is 15 years old. Looks like the day I got it (Reynspooners do the reverse-fabric thing, so most of them have a light/faded kind of look to start, and they don't seem to age).

Not sure where to get them. Nordstrom was the only place to have a sale on them, once a year, back in the day. Store here where I probably bought all of mine - an older Israeli guy, down in the touristy shops at the old Coronado ferry landing - is gone.

Unlike in the West, Islam doesn't believe women are deserving of orgasms, and if they don't get cut, they can't control themselves because of the power of orgasms.

Just one more reason to like the West. Western women have it figured out.

777 ..I have a 12 string I got the year I graduated. I worked in a music store and I just had to have it when it arrived at the store. Then I slowly realized I don't actually play acoustic because don't listen to much that uses one let alone a 12 string. I doubt it's been used more than 3 dozen times.


Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at September 16, 2020 01:52 AM (9Om/r)



Gordon Lightfoot concert, Lila Cockrell Theatre, San Antonio, TX. 3,000 ish capacity, maybe 2k in attendance.

Early '90s.

Mr. Lightfoot made that 12 string sound great and look easy. And what a tight, tight band.

They've backed him then for about 30+ years, so you'd expect that, and you'd be rewarded in that expectation.

*break*

Local trio. Morris, Thompson & Turner.

Best cover for CCR & The Eagles I've ever heard.

Their lead would do the Hotel California solo on the 12 string. And: 1. make you ashamed to have been a fan of the Eagles version. 2: Break more steel strings in one song, than you thought possible.

2000/2002 ish era. Southeast Houston area.

I think they released one CD, and *poof* they were gone.

But I did once hire them for a gig of about 300 people. Best clause into a contract I ever wrote.

For every 10 minutes they were late, they lost 20% of their contract fee. They were a notoriously "late" band.

Here.

They. Were. On. Time.

And I made over $400 Net on my own Birfday Pardy. Yoo. Whoo.

781 6 months ago, amidst much denials, some people insisted this co-vid fear mongering as a political ploy to manipulate society, and of late we now know co-vid is intended to keep many schools closed as to affect election fraud favorable for the democrats. Many schools are used as polling places and closed mail fraud will lock-up the election for demorats. They meant it when they repeatedly said; Only they have the right to govern/rule.

Anyway, dunno all the details and merits etc, not gonna get wrapped around that axle, but just one side observation.

WI is a battleground state of importance.

Most pollsters now acknowledge a "shy Trump voter" phenomenon, of material dimensions.

Incidents like this are going to ...... make WI polling even more needful of asterisks and ad hoc adjustment of findings.

In Marxist-Leninist (and probably Xi) thinking, the concept is called "Objective Correlation of Forces".

Actually, it is pure Lenin.

The idea is that you must attack, when the relative strength on your side is at it's maximum, and before the enemy has a chance to increase in strength.

Miklos, the second planting of corn was nothing to brag about, I fear. Even making cut-off corn is a PIA with so many brown kernels and poor pollination. We had 3 weeks of 90+ temps which really was the capper. Next year we'll do 3 plantings - mid-April, late April and mid-May. Nothing later than that.

nothing gives the flavor like Mesquite. Sure it can be overdone, but there are methods to deal with that I am sure. They probably cook it down to coals.

Speaking of Mexico. The Yucatan area is very lush or at least it once was. They filmed one of my favorite movies there. The movie was Romancing the Stone and it was set in Colombia.

Twitter Suspends Account Of Chinese Scientist Who Published Paper Alleging Covid Was Created In Wuhan Lab


Had Twitter been around then, they would have suspended the Twitter accounts of the "rogues" who were calling the earth round instead of flat.

I am surprised Twitter and the rest of social media have not been suspending accounts of those who question the narrative(s) of "climate change".

You can bet that is being talked about if the Democrats ever get back control of the White House.

Didn't watch it either.

The american people deserve to know who the real Dem candidate is and that person should come to the debates.
