The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“I don’t disagree with you. And look, I’m a hundred percent frank and candid. This is not a highly nuanced, sophisticated response. This is a fear-driven response. You know, this is not a policy being written by a scalpel. This is a policy being cut a hatchet, it’s just a very blunt — I didn’t propose this, you know. It was proposed by the mayor in the city. I’m trying to sharpen it and make it a better. But it’s out of fear. People see the numbers going up, ‘Close everything! Close everything!’ It’s not the best way to do it, but it is a fear-driven response. The virus scares people.” Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY)

Quote II

Be true to yourself, help others, make each day your masterpiece, make friendship a fine art, drink deeply from good books - especially the Bible, build a shelter against a rainy day, give thanks for your blessings and pray for guidance every day. John Wooden

Quote III

"Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as 'not legitimate' and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing. Trump Administration officials have attested to these facts under oath," Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates


Quote IV

Dude, I swear to god if that happens then I’m coming over to visit the UK. I’m out of here. I’ll go back to my motherland, go back to go Greece and get a house on one of the islands.” Washed up Rock N Roller, Tommy Lee

Beat the crowds and leave now wife beater.


Quote V

“Today marks a seminal moment in our city’s history in our efforts to reimagine public safety,” LA Council President Nury Martinez


If enacted, this program will end badly. Mark my words.

I would tell @jack to #LearnToCode, but that's hateful. And his apology is too late and too hollow.

Twitter CEO admits it was 'unacceptable' to block sharing of NY Post's Biden Burisma story 'with zero context'

Will jury nullification happen in Kenosha County for Kyle Rittenhouse? Why the haste in 1st degree murder charges before all the facts are in?

According to a criminal complaint obtained by the New York Post, a Wisconsin man has been charged by Wisconsin authorities with multiple crimes after he reportedly admitted to having fired the first of a number of fateful shots that rang out in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on the night of Aug. 25.


According to the Post, 35-year-old Wisconsin native Joshua Ziminski and his wife both admitted to detectives that Ziminski fired a "warning shot" into the air immediately before Rittenhouse allegedly shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum during a tense night of protests. The detectives are the same detectives who have been in charge of investigating Rittenhouse's activities on that evening.


Was Joshua J. Ziminski (DOB 02-21-1985) the straw that broke the camel's back? Such an upstanding citizen, all around great person and wonderful parent.

My, what a pleasant young lady. I bet she is one hell of an entertaining dinner guest.

A University of North Texas employee frequently posts videos of herself screaming at police officers at Black Lives Matter rallies, demanding their names and badge numbers. In one instance, she called a cancer clinic to demand information about a picture that had been sent to her showing a police officer not wearing a mask while sitting in the waiting room.

After obtaining a picture of a police officer waiting in the clinic without his face covered, University of North Texas employee Jessica Luther Rummel posted audio on YouTube of her calling the clinic to inquire about the situation. Rummel can be heard telling the clinic that she received a picture of the officer not wearing a mask and asks if it was not enforcing COVID-19 rules.

"So you’re all talk and no action just like the rest of your Republican GOP death cult buddies, right?” Tweet This
In the video, Rummel posts the name and picture of the clinic employee, as well as the picture of the officer in the waiting room.


The clinic employee states that there are patients who must remove their mask to drink contrast fluid before procedures, and then put their masks back on afterward. The staff at that specific clinic verified that the officer did have his mask off, but only briefly. The employee also tells Luther Rummel that taking pictures of patients at a cancer clinic violates their privacy rights.

I believe this falls into the category of: Be careful for what you wish for.

Anyone who has ever bought anything from Ikea can identify with that sinking feeling when you struggle to put together a cupboard or a chair, only to find something is missing.

Customers of the Swedish multinational captured this frustration when they named a street near a new Spanish store Calle Me Falta un Tornillo, or I’m Missing a Screw Street.

Ikea thought up a clever way to make customers identify with their store in Valladolid, in northern Spain, by asking them to dream up a name for a road beside the store. In a Facebook poll in which more than one thousand people voted, some 54 per cent backed the winning entry.

As we approach Halloween and the little Trick or Treaters, remember Candy Corn, Lewis Black does............

Guess the kids of Glen Ridge, NJ don't have to worry about Candy Corn in their utility collection device.

It will be a disappointing Halloween for children who hoped to go trick-or-treating in Glen Ridge, after the Borough Council announced that going door to door for candy won't be allowed.

In a notice on the borough website, officials said people come from all over to trick or treat in town and a homeowner can give out more than 1,000 pieces of candy on the holiday, causing some streets to be extremely crowded.

"The Center for Disease Control has determined that it is a high-risk activity to participate in traditional Halloween trick-or-treating where treats are handed to, and received by children who go door to door," the notice said.

Mayor Stuart Patrick, members of the council and the Board of Health decided it would be best if traditional trick-or-treating not be allowed between Oct. 29 and Nov. 1.


Yes, let's remove all joy from the lives of everyone for the Kung Flu.

Watch The Biggest Unexploded World War Two Bomb Ever Found in Poland Blow Up

The British “Tallboy” bomb, one of the largest conventional weapons of World War Two, detonated during efforts to make it safe.

British Royal Air Force “Tallboy” bomb, intended to sink a German cruiser during World War Two, blew up spectacularly in a Polish canal while divers were working to defuse it. After lying dormant for 75 years, the 12,000-pound bomb exploded underwater, sending a huge column of water skywards, but fortunately not resulting in any injuries or serious damage.

Eric Clapton was suspended from driving in France after being caught speeding at 134mph in his Porsche 911 Turbo near Merceuil. He was given a 750 euro (£515) fine and his UK licence was confiscated. After paying his fine Clapton posed for photographs with French police and then left the scene in his Porsche - with his secretary behind the wheel. via thisdayinmusic.com

A couple of Genius Award Winners tonight. Cars and Genius Award Winners go hand in hand, sort of like Maple Syrup on French Toast.


Beamers are fine vehicles, but don't you would think the ride got bumpy after a short distance? Genius Award Winner.

Vehicles, like any other functioning entities, are made up of different parts that work to operate the whole. Some of those parts are necessary, some aren’t, and some aren’t required but are highly recommended. Tires are around the top of the list in that last category, but it looks like someone didn’t get the memo.

Philadelphia station WPVI reports that a driver on a local Interstate Tuesday was rolling around without tires, evidently conducting a real-world test of how imperative that whole “highly recommended” qualifier is. State police told the station they got several calls about it that morning, and that the driver, who wasn’t named in the report, went at least five miles with the car like that.

Drinking and driving and another Genius Award Winner.

Struck The Police!

Don’t you just hate it when you’re driving down the highway – the wrong way – minding your own business – while drunk – and the racist, fascist cops try to stop you – while you’re ignoring their commands – and start chasing your car?

At the right place, at the right time. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Nick says when they bought the house, they were told it was built by a childless German baron who turned to bootlegging illegal liquor in the 1920s.

Nick says the story seems to be at least partly true. "While repairing trim as part of a larger renovation, we discovered multiple false walls and secret compartment under the floor in our mudroom. The foundation walls and floors in the mudroom are lined with intact cases of 1920s whiskey."

22 Damnit, I came up with the best movie comedy idea ever in the last thread and I was willowed!

587 An idea for an updated "Titanic" - can someone do a remake and have Jack Dorsey, Mark Zuckerberg, Jeff Bezos, George Soros, and Bill Gates onboard?

They can all be attending a TED talk in the grand ballroom when the iceberg hits. And they can't be rescued because the lifeboats are computerized - by Microsoft - and they get an error reading on the control panels. They can't figure out how to manually row boats so all the techies die.

It amazes me that with the screwed up lives they lead, that they think we should give a crap about their opinions. Geez, your average five year old has better judgement.

97 I don't want to be hopeful to the point of wishful, but I am really thinking this Biden bombshell might be what sinks him. If Trump can play it right, it just might.

And, ironically, if it does a big part of it will be the initial censorship response by Twitter and Facebook. All they did was put a fat spotlight on it, forcing THAT to become the story which, in turn, made the story circulate among those who might've missed it.

All that being said, I don't think there has not been a worse ticket to run for a major party since McGovern/Shriver in 72.

Trump likes to joke about how lucky he is to run against Biden, and I know that the fomenting of insanity on the left will make things competitive, but still, he really is lucky. Donald Trump is a force, no doubt about it, but without question he would have lost last time had a candidate not been as loathed by so many (and as incompetent at campaigning) as was Hillary. We were so fortunate that she was as bad as she was, because she paved the way for Trump to be as great as he has been.

Hard to say about this time, since for all we know Trump could be poised for a landslide re-election anyway, but as it stands now, he couldn't have asked for a better tin can to run against.

And that Kamala? What a lightweight she is. ACB ate her lunch all over the map today. The more serious she tries to look the more she just looks like a(n unattractive) porn star pretending to be an office worker.

I moved out of said apartment mid-October. Apparently in January one other guy in the group did as well as they had been put on a "3 strikes" policy sometime after I left and had used 2 by Jan, and by the end of the year another was invited not to come back to the campus.

People honk at them and he gives the a whoop and thumbs up. Today I go there again, and on the opposite corner are three losers. Holding a rainbow flag. And some other weird colored flag. like light blue and pink and something else. But these losers one has green hair and another had blue hair, just completely stereotypical. And also sad and pathetic that they have to copy this guy out there. He did have a lady and a young boy with him out there today. And of course people were honking at him and giving him the thumbs up still.

The only charges I have read of is of one man in the crowd who we haven't heard of before. He was charged with pulling a pistol and firing into the air as Kyle tried to retreat. This is key, since it solidifies Kyle's self defense claim as to the first shooting - he had reason to believe he was being shot at, which justified his firing back in self defense.

Posted by: Shenanigans at October 14, 2020 10:19 PM (ojwvu)

Well, that ticket's right up -- or rather right down -- there with Dukakis/Bentsen. That ticket was so horrid I totally forgot who ran with Dukakis and had to look it up. But I also forgot who ran with McGovern, so it really is a toss-up on which ticket was worse. One mitigating factor for McGovern/Shriver is that ticket ran two years before I could vote.

221 I enjoy Trump's rallies but the crowd size at rallies and their enthusiasm doesn't mean much. Mittens got huge crowds at his rallies too - one reason we thought he would win.

What is more important, IMO, is what Mollie Hemingway pointed out today - that in key swing states, Republican registration is waaaaay higher than Democrats. Are those brand new voters being reached by pollsters? Doubtful.

284 Well, that ticket's right up -- or rather right down -- there with Dukakis/Bentsen. That ticket was so horrid I totally forgot who ran with Dukakis and had to look it up. But I also forgot who ran with McGovern, so it really is a toss-up on which ticket was worse. One mitigating factor for McGovern/Shriver is that ticket ran two years before I could vote.
Posted by: RickZ at October 14, 2020 10:37 PM (Y8PSl)

What's scarier was that the ticket was being played up as Kennedyesque by the media - the MA gov paired with a TX Sen.

Even scarier was the fact that Bentsen won re-election and in fact only left office once made SecTreas under Clinton, which paved the way for Hutchison to take his seat in the 1993 special election.

I still wish Trump had released this stuff a month or so before the Democratic National Convention.

He was effectively the candidate, but not in actuality. There was still room for the Bernie Bros to try and make some kind of move at the convention to take the nomination from Biden.

I've read about Rod Stewart and his fanatical work ethic, he switched
over to the great American Songbook once the rock thing was over for
him, and he stays busy every day.



He owns property in California, I think, and has a compound of his
own house and the houses of his various kids and their families, and he
bemoans the laziness of said kids!



I don't recall hearing about his political opinions, which is refreshing, and I'm not sure if he's a US citizen or still a Brit.



Posted by: Boots at October 14, 2020 10:24 PM (oGBso)

Rod Stewart is, among other things a Master model railroader. His Grand Street and Three Rivers layout has been in Model Railroader magazine several times, including a couple times on the cover. Even though he's a Brit, it's loosely based on the Pittsburgh area. He does fantastic urban scenery. A few good pics in this article:

Anyone getting the nomination other than Biden at the convention would have been a nuclear level event within the Democratic Party.

The Establishment nearly blew up the party already when they convinced everyone else to drop out other than Biden to head off Bernie. Some Bernie fans still haven't forgiven them for it, but it had the aura of a democratic decision.

The Establishment fighting off the Bernie Bros unsuccessfully during the convention would have probably straight up split the party.

One time, he and another cop had to go to a home, over a $40 hot check at the Safeway. Identify themselves, asked to come in to talk things over, check writer goes to the couch, comes up with a gun and starts shooting, and they had to shoot and kill him.

Earlier on the tech monopoly thread, we were discussing J.P. Morgan and someone mentioned where he actually bailed out the US Treasury. I looked that up and the details were fascinating.

It was the Panic of 1893. Grover Cleveland was POTUS. That was during the Free Banking era and the gold standard. US dollars were redeemable on demand from the US Treasury. Treasury issued a lot more notes than gold on hand. By law gold reserves were supposed to be a minimum of $100M.

There was a run on gold during the Panic, and the US Treasury's gold reserves were being depleted. They dropped well below the floor of $100M, and much of the gold was being taken out of the country.

The reserves dropped to just $9M, and there was a single outstanding "draft" of $10M that could be called in, and the US Treasury would've defaulted. They tried to keep this secret of course, for good reason.

Enter J.P. Morgan. He offered to help, and went down to D.C personally. Cleveland didn't want to meet with him, being embarrassed to have to have private help.

However, the markets improved a bit when word got out that J.P was coming in, so Cleveland agreed to meet with him.

Cleveland, the AG, and the Treasury Sec. met with Morgan. Cleveland tried to talk from a position of strength -- we'll be okay, but if you'd like to help....

Morgan simply said, "If that $10 note is called in, it'll all be over by 3 o'clock". Morgan knew all about that, and that scared the shit out of Cleveland and the others.

Morgan then essentially dictated terms to the president of the United States. He got gold back in the Treasury, and back into the country and stopped the flow out. And made a nice profit.

458 Let's regroup here a moment.

Rudy Guiliani, one of the most successful Federal Prosecutors of all time. Leader of the legal teams which over about a twenty-year span, directed various Federal Law Enforcement agencies in the "combined arms" investigations of all five if the Five Families of the N.Y.C. based Mafia enterprises.

Took them down, and in other cities too, IIRC.

In Rudy's case, the targets of these investigations were all either convicted and sent away for long sentences, or plead to lesser charges for *some* cooperation. A scant few "flipped", turned State's Witness, and divulged all that they knew.

Contrast Mueller, who ran COVER for Whitey Bugler for a similar twenty year span. And it was only under Rosenstein's "lead" with Bulger back in prison, that Bulger was "dealt with", ending any testimony threat he might have offered.

Point here being, this isn't Rudy's first rodeo.

They've been working on this for at least as long as Trump's first transition. Remember when Admiral Rogers gave Trump the heads-up that Trump Tower was "wired", and then Trump instantly moved the Transition H.Q. to his Country Club?

I'll put $100 down right here and right now. That's when Rudy got "the brief" and the commission to start digging.

We're seeing the fruits of those efforts here, this week.

And someone above suggested that Rudy has had that hard drive for months, maybe even a year, just waiting for the October Window in which to crush utterly, the usual Democrat Surprise 'round about now.

I'm sure he had it, I'm sure his timing is perfect, and here we are, watching a Master at work in his final Yuge Case.

Sure, there's much yet to do, and prosecutions ought to result. We all hope they do.

But in electoral terms? What we've all seen, is the dagger going in. To the hilt.

Nothing left now then, but for the twisting, the sideways shove, and the upthrust to the heart.

It's all done now but for the dyin'.

467 As I was mowing the church yard today, watching a line of 100 people forming to vote on the first day of early voting, I noticed an elderly woman pull into the parking lot.

She seemed a bit concerned, so I stopped the push mower to talk to her. She asked me if it was okay to park in our lot and I jokingly said "I guess, unless you are going down there to protest."

It looked like, for a moment, she was going to curse, perhaps in public for the first time in her life. She proceeded to tell me how upset she was with the protestors, the burning of the cities, how she had never seen anything like it in her 90 years. She went on to tell me how her late husband would have been beside himself. She told me that she couldn't say what she thought these days because if she did people would get mad at her. She told me that was why she was there to vote.

I pointed at the cross in the church and said "We can try, but that's the only guy who can fix it all."

She said "You're right. I pray every night and every morning for the President and our country."

She gave me a hug, not knowing me from Adam, and me being sort of a big, surly fella. Told me that if there were protestors down there, she'd just mind her own business and walk right on by. Told me where she lived and her name and then shuffled on down to the polls a block away.

And I looked at the line and it was full of husbands and wives and American flag hats and shirts.

And it really restored hope in me.

There are good people all over this country and they aren't scared. They are still ready to go and do what's right.

That's a good thing. The best thing of all, really.

But Romney didn't hold many. In the last few weeks he did one at Red Rocks, which was the first time he had a rally of significant size. Last few days he did one in Ohio and one in PA.

But in the end he fucked up with that Orca stupidity. He didn't get his base to the polls. Trump did that last time with outsourced GOTV. This year GOTV is on an entirely different level.

Got Her Majesty and Delilah off for four days of shows in Belton. Lila is currently the #4 Borzoi in breed standings (based on dogs defeated in breed competition). If she's in the top 5 at the end of the month, she gets an automatic invitation to Westminster.

While we don't think she will fall out of top 5, it's been frustrating getting her higher than she is now. She's a consistent Best of Breed winner, but Borzoi entries in the area have been small. #BigKennel doesn't like competing against her and won't enter under breeder-judges, such as we have this weekend.

492 I enjoy Trump's rallies but the crowd size at rallies and their enthusiasm doesn't mean much. Mittens got huge crowds at his rallies too - one reason we thought he would win.
------
But Romney didn't hold many. In the last few weeks he did one at Red Rocks, which was the first time he had a rally of significant size. Last few days he did one in Ohio and one in PA.

But in the end he fucked up with that Orca stupidity. He didn't get his base to the polls. Trump did that last time with outsourced GOTV. This year GOTV is on an entirely different level.
Posted by: Dave in Fla at October 14, 2020 11:17 PM (5p7BC)

Romney isnt an extrovert; he had .0000001 of Trumps enthusiasm. Trump would hold a rally every night if he could. He really loves it and it shows.

Plus hints that she's a racist, a liar, a ventriloquist dummy for the ghost of Justice Scalia, and a religious fanatic who hates gay people, and that she's somehow responsible for what Bad Orange Man said about her and responsible for an ad that ran ten years ago which included her signature from a petition she signed on the way home from church.

560 Romney isnt an extrovert; he had .0000001 of Trumps enthusiasm. Trump would hold a rally every night if he could. He really loves it and it shows.
Posted by: LASue at October 14, 2020 11:23 PM (Ed8Zd)

Well, yeah. Romney is boring as hell when he's not being a snake in the grass. My point is that large rallies by themselves don't mean much. Ask Bernie. I like Trump's rallies, but if there wasn't other data (like voter registration numbers) that show that Trump is in better shape than the polls indicate, I wouldn't be putting a lot of stock in Trump rallies.

However, there's another point there: like today's TDS sufferers, we hated the incumbent and would have voted for any GOP candidate to get rid of Obama. It wasn't enough. All Romney had to offer was "I'm not Obama" which didn't convince people who didn't despise Obama like we did. Same goes now. The Dems have nothing to offer except "He's not Trump." 2012 taught me that negative energy doesn't win presidential races.

Walton came in to tell Coach Wooden that he would have to skip practice because there was a big anti-war protest that day and his conscience demanded he attend.

This is a good point. Plus it's extremely difficult to beat an incumbent.

Plus if you did "snapshot" test - a two second look at Trump at his best and a two second look at Biden at his best, and ask a five year old or a totally sheltered person from another country which one will win, I suspect Trump would get 85% or more of the vote. The snapshot test *matters*.

578 A couple of thoughts:
I keep wondering why Hunter would take laptops to be serviced and then never pick them up. I'd like to know what was going in the immediate timeframe when he dropped them off. Was it in the middle of the paternity/child support litigation or at about the time Joe entered the race and Hunter was interviewed on national tv? I have a nagging feeling that he wanted to "disappear" them.

If there are revelations of additional sources of income for Hunter, I believe there's a judge and baby mama in Arkansas that are going to want to have a word with him. Potential perjury charges in relation to his testimony in the child support matter?

580 Well, in the ongoing saga of the dead Suzuki Sidekick, I have identified the problem. The fuel pump is dead, gummed up by stale gasoline. I cut a hole in the floor, which is half rusted away, to expose the fuel pump cover plate. Could not undo the threaded coupling, had to break the rusted-thin steel line. And had to drill out the six screws retaining the pump cover.

On the bench, the pump draws current, and I can feel a torque reaction when I make/break the power to it. But it won't spin. I filled it full of carb cleaner, and left it to soak overnight.

Now, I am faced with what to do with 11 U.S. gallons of stale gas. I will probably siphon it out of the tank, and add it, in increments, to the fuel tank of my Suburban before setting out on a long road trip. Burn it off in a day.

I'm comparing the emotions of both sides - not the reasoning (or lack thereof) behind them.


Oh I wasn't fussing or anything. I just find it odd that people all of a sudden have so much hatred for a guy that was on TV with his own series with good ratings for so long.

Someone somewhere has been flipping switches inside people's heads. I have a granddaughter who really got emotional about PDT last year at T'Giving dinner. First time I've ever seen her like that about anything or anyone.

633 AOP, I have five gallons or so of gas contaminated with an unknown amount of kerosene (probably less than half a gallon if that). What would you recommend? I'm thinking of feeding it (in small amounts) to an old tractor that I need to get started anyhow.
Posted by: Commissar Hrothgar - Your Rulers Have, and Deserve, Different Rules!- at October 14, 2020 11:56 PM (2C38g)

That ought to work. Old tractors had low compression engines, as a rule. There were some made that started on gasoline, and switched to kerosene once warmed up. Rumely Oilpull, for one.

Kerosene lowers the octane rating. But if you dilute the contaminated fuel with fresh, not by very much.

I only had a radio - no record or cassette player (and no money to buy records/tapes with) - so every time it came on, which was rarely in 1979 since, even though Renegade was the year before, 1979 meant "Babe" which meant you might hear another Styx song once a day if you listened to all the rock stations simultaneously, I was amped. Great song.

The Tech Oligarchs are the biggest threat to liberty and the United States as founded by far. They must be destroyed. Google, et al are at the point John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, and the other robber barons were during the turn of the 19th Century.

Their power was economic and monetary. The current Tech oligarchs, while they ain't poor, don't have that kind of financial power directly. What they do have is something even more powerful than that. Control of information.

And that kind of power can't be concentrated in the hands of a small cabal.

It's time for Teddy Roosevelt style Tech trustbusting. Start with Google. It has a monopoly on the online advertising market. They need to be broken up into a bunch of little pieces.

No.

DOJ needs to mount simultaneous attacks on the trio, and send the lot of them into Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt.

They're set up now as an Interlocking Field of Fire. Mutual support. Self-healing wound.

All three legs of the stool are to be kicked with the same sweep.

Which is reduced to splinters first, is of but details.

But they must all be sent to the floor in utter disarray, and KEPT THERE by means of unrelenting stompage until the surrender, or die.

We can toss the scraps of their carcasses to the vultures OUTSIDE OF silicone valley, as we will.

The Tech Oligarchs are the biggest threat to liberty and the United States as founded by far. They must be destroyed. Google, et al are at the point John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, and the other robber barons were during the turn of the 19th Century.

Their power was economic and monetary. The current Tech oligarchs, while they ain't poor, don't have that kind of financial power directly. What they do have is something even more powerful than that. Control of information.

And that kind of power can't be concentrated in the hands of a small cabal.

Walton went to practice.

Excellent Hitchcock episode on MeTV right now if anyone is interested. Sorry scheming (second)husband of wealthy woman kills one of her sons by faking a suicide by hanging. Wife comes in catches him in the act of typing the fake suicide note, all while son's body is swinging from the ceiling.

She freaks out and husband pushes her down the stairs. Her other son comes in, and husband convinces them she saw her son hanging and the shock made her run out and fall down the stairs.

It didn't kill her, but she's paralyzed and can't speak. She lays in bed, with him hovering around playing the role of devoted husband for everyone's benefit. He's just biding his time to finish the job.

This is a good 'un.

Hmm.. good question. I haven't fired a gun in 25 years. I'm not sure what I would want to shoot. I have pretty much shot it all, so I'm familiar with a shitload of different platforms. I like the the black rifles of belligerence, lol. I don't know, I would like to see if I kept my long range skills, but really, I'll shoot anything.
Speaking of strumstick. I finally figured out why I just can't get my head around that thing, it has no flats or sharps, like no in between notes. The frets have a very weird layout, it's missing frets, as in it actually skips fret locations, so certain notes don't exist on it. In the end it is sooooo not for somebody who already can play. People who don't play wouldn't know what they are missing, but somebody like me will instantly be seeking notes that don't exist. I'm definitely bringing it with me. Its a beautifully made piece, but its completely wasted on me.

769 Just watched half of Giuliani's presentation today - he says there is a lot more coming - and, um.

Wow.

It would appear they have secured documentation of massive, massive corruption, involving not just Ukraine but China, Russia, Iraq, and other countries.

He calls them the "Biden crime family". Not just a stylistic flourish - the $$$ were apparently distributed across the famille.

One side point he makes at the start, really a different issue than Joe's massive corruption - how the hell did all of this take place without detection/intervention from the watchdogs of the US intel/nat. security apparatus?

Recall that during the absurd impeachment process, it was revealed that State and the US Embassy in Kiev had the willies about Hunter's involvement, and about Burisma itself. Pretty conventional, normal concerns. Why this wasn't the reaction across the board, and why nothing was ever done (apart from perhaps shunning a few dirty players here and there, by our embassies), is the sub-story.

But, wow. This would appear to be a BFD, to quote the loathsome, nasty, stupid, corrupt POS known as Joe Biden (I claim seniority in this, first direct exposure to him was at a dinner seminar in 1980 or 81).

Range day tomorrow, so off to dreamland.

So if you go to tinyurl or some other link shortener, create a link to the NY Post story, and change the start of it from https to http, as of right now the Great Firewall of Twitter won't reject your link as "harmful."

I'd hazard a guess that the degree holder in question did not apply herself assiduously to her studies and so things stretched out, timeline-wise.

866 Ugh! Biden's family!

Watched the Guiliani video.

Didn't the Bidens release their income tax returns recently? Would be fun to see if they reported the money Hunter gave "Pop"

1. If Hunter had a business, it should have been declared as income by Sundown and DOCTOR Jill.

OR

2. Hunter should have had to file gift tax returns and very likely he (donor) or Sundown (donee) would have to pay gift tax at the top rate of 40%

3. Or it wasn't reported at all -

I'm leaning toward 3.

894 It's interesting that in the 7 months that we've been locking our seniors away from harm due to the Chinese Lung Rot that I've changed my thinking so drastically.
In the beginning I was all for it, it protects the most vulnerable. Now, 7 months later I've decided it's detrimental to their health, physical and mental since the 2 work in tandem at their ages. I'm watching my mom, just shy of 96 years old trying to rehab after a stroke and multiple seizures. She's basically locked in skilled nursing with the aides, nurses and her fellow residents. Every day I can go over and wave to her and talk to her through her window. Cannot really see her since window and screen combos are not helpful. Yesterday due to staffing circumstances I couldn't even speak with her. I know that her age works against her in this situation, however she was a very healthy 95 year old when all of this lockdown crap started and in 7 months she aged 20 years.
She's giving up and and there's nothing I can do about it.

We have the rolling grasslands for sure. With lots of Angus cows. 2 cows / person in Kansas. I see the ranchers have a second group of calves. They're burning out the cows.

The horizon to horizon wheat fields are further west. The local soybean harvest is almost all in. As is the sorghum. Corn was in a month ago. Good yields.

We also have some goat or sheep ranchers, and one who adds sheep to the goats.

I've been pretty opposed to it from the start. I was fine with a two week shut down to prep and prepare but after that I was done. And as for the elderly in these facilities absolutely precautions need to be taken. But one of those precautions is to allow visitors because they can come in and see that shit isn't being done right and raise a fuss that the people living there might not want to do. And that can help not only the person they're visiting but the people who don't get the same amount of visitors. Cuomo's method was quick in killing seniors but this is just as bad letting them slowly waste away.

In Pookette's class last year and this year, 4 out of the 17 kids were adopted. We don't intend to go out into the world and find kids to bring home. There are currently over 4,000 kids in the Iowa foster care system, and if you put one of those kids in our home, we will love them forever.

986 Guess the kids of Glen Ridge, NJ don't have to worry about Candy Corn in their utility collection device.

It will be a disappointing Halloween for children who hoped to go trick-or-treating in Glen Ridge, after the Borough Council announced that going door to door for candy won't be allowed.

Same thing here at my apartment complex in SE Michigan. Office sent out flyers to inform residents that there will be no door-to-door trick-or-treating this year. And included a form for people to fill out and return if they want someone to come to their apartment to hand out candy.

So I guess instead of dressing up and walking around door-to-door to get candy from a bunch of different people, people from the apartment complex will go door-to-door to hand out a handful of candy to people.

Seems pretty stupid.

Especially since the whole point of Halloween for most kids is being able to dress up in costumes and walk around town like that and people giving them candy for it.

With this, there's no costume-wearing, no walking around town, no having multiple people give you candy for it all. It's just you waiting at home for someone to stop by once and give you a handful of candy.

Stupid.

We get our two gKids here one day per week.

We have a large yard; they run in it.

We walk around the neighborhood; they see other people and say "Hi" to them.

Yesterday, gPa (me) took them to the little creek that runs through our neighborhood's one lot-sized "park". They threw things in the creek and got both wet and dirty. I am certain that this was the first time they had this experience.

So what is the CDC saying? That someone with the 'rona passing out candy can transfer it to the candy wrapper? And then the 'rona will stay alive on that candy wrapper in the bag of candy for the hour(s) that the kids trick-or-treat... and then when the kids or parents go through the candy later at home, it will transfer from the wrapper to the hands and then infect people?

I thought if everyone wore masks, this was not an issue. Just put out some bullshit trick-or-treat policy that everyone participating -- including those passing out candy -- should wear masks and we're good.

Or everyone should just tell their local politicians to go fuck themselves, take their kids trick-or-treating and dare local police to arrest a bunch of kids.

So I'm doing a cool-down walk from a run and the paths join where some dude is walking his dog and we are fairly close. At this exact time, a great horned owl lets out a call. I look up, and in a tree just 20 feet away on the top branches, clear as anything sits this magnificent apex predator bird.

I make a comment loud enough where certainly, even with earbuds he could hear me say that this is an awesome occasion to see this bird so close.

He doesn't care, doesn't look up, just walks away.

While happy to see the bird, I was also somewhat sad for the guy. I'm older than he is, yet he has lost his childhood curiosity and amazement at the world. Take a walk with a child and they observe every bird, frog, insect, flower. Adults? Just a thousand mile stare as if nothing matters anymore.

That is what I saw when I read your description of the adult's version of a child's Halloween.

The kids around here actually play outside, ride bikes, and run amok.

While happy to see the bird, I was also somewhat sad for the guy. I'm older than he is, yet he has lost his childhood curiosity and amazement at the world. Take a walk with a child and they observe every bird, frog, insect, flower. Adults? Just a thousand mile stare as if nothing matters anymore.

That is what I saw when I read your description of the adult's version of a child's Halloween.

You would think more people would be pushing back against all these policies to not live one's life. Afterall, according to the Left, we only have 9 years to live (or is it 11? 7? Wait, no, 10 maybe?) before the world dies from man-made "climate change".

Whatever happened to "YOLO" and people doing stupid shit, because... YOLO.

Now, people are agreeing to stupid policies to hide on one's home or don't dare go outside without a mask or social distancing. So much for YOLO.

1048 Penguin (or "Pengie," as my daughter would call you), I have a counter-story. As I was walking through the grocery store the other day, there was a guy who was talking to his wife on speakerphone. He was looking at the candy section, trying to find the red hots with no success. Two college girls had just stopped and were trying to help him. Then I walked over and pointed to the corner where they were, because I was in the same situation a month ago. He was grateful, as were the college girls, since now they knew where to find them as well!

1049 ....hard to believe anyone could be that stupid to put that in an Email that way.
