The Quotes Of The Day

Quote I

“Our frontline servers have already had trouble dealing with masks and mandates and mandating masks. We did de-escalation training and all kinds of other things to help with that and now we’re taking to the next level. We have to gather someone’s personal information?” Scott Ellis, executive director of the Michigan Licensed Beverage Association


Quote II

“People are really, really mad. When you have that many people and they’re shut down, they feel silenced. It was a lot of work over the past year for a private group to just be shut down without notification,” Priscilla Confrey, co-director of New Jersey Women For Trump


Quote III

“Well, hopefully, it doesn’t come to that because we will see swift action coordinating with and supporting public health authorities telling us what we can do without requiring any kind of mandates, but everything has to be on the table in order to keep Americans safe. We should never have got to this point. It should never have been allowed to get this bad. Failed Presidential Candidate Pete Buttigieg


Quote IV

If you believe that government can stop a virus, then you are an idiot.

If you believe governments are stripping away rights and monitoring our every move because they care, then you possess the logic of a slave who has fallen in love with its master.Candace Owens


Quote V

“Osama bin Laden, as a person, is far more understandable to me and far less reprehensible, personally, psychologically, than Trump.” Sam Harris

The Editorial Of The Day

Donald Trump is not Churchill, to be sure, but he gets things done.

He is not a unifier. He often acts like the president of his base, not the whole country. He has done nothing to lessen our divisions and has, in fact, often deepened them. The convictions and intellect of all Americans should be respected by ALL Americans, especially the president.

Has Mr. Trump handled the pandemic perfectly? No. But no one masters a pandemic. And the president was and is right that we must not cower before the disease and we have to keep America open and working.

He has not listened well to people who could have helped him. He has not learned government, or shown interest in doing so.

But the Biden-Harris ticket offers us higher taxes and a nanny state that will bow to the bullies and the woke who would tear down history rather than learning from history and building up the country.

It offers an end to fracking and other Cuckoo California dreams that will cost the economy and the people who most need work right now. “Good-paying green jobs” are probably not jobs for Pittsburgh, or Cleveland, or Toledo, or Youngstown. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

There is a reason they call it "Artificial Intelligence". Soccer is bad enough on TV without "AI".

The camera was programmed to automatically follow the ball, removing the need for a human camera person. Outside of taking a person’s job, it seems kind of neat in theory. The issue was that the camera couldn’t tell the difference between the ball and the bald head, continually focusing on a man standing around not doing much, rather than actually let fans see the action.

To make matters worse Scotland is under strict social distancing measures. With no fans in attendance this was the only ways for fans of Iverness and Ayr United to watch the match, and instead they were treated to 90 minutes of head watching.

Please tell me no one watched the entire 90 minutes of this.

So do those mandated masks also come with papers to travel at will?

Biden finally comes clean and admits he is going to violate the constitution.

During a desperate rally with former President Barack Obama Biden admitted he’s going to impose a “national mandate” on masks on the first day in office.

On September 16th, Biden said that a national mask mandate is constitutional and that he would lobby every person in government to mandate masks. Now, with the election on the line, Biden is throwing the constitution out the window.

They seem nice.

Antifa protesters took to the streets of suburban Vancouver, Washington, and burned American flags during their Halloween-night “anti-capitalism” protests. During one of these burnings, a protester yelled, “Death to your f**king empire!”

Capitalism scary? Not as scary as your typical Burn, Loot, Murder. Or just another night in Portland.

Police declared a march against capitalism and police violence a riot in Portland, Oregon, after demonstrators smashed the windows of businesses and threw projectiles at cops.

The damage was caused during the “Capitalism is Scary” march that began around 7:15 p.m. Saturday from Irving Park, Oregon Live reported.

But as the group marched south to Portland’s convention center, some of the protesters smashed the windows of buildings, including a bank, a real estate agency, two phone company stores, a hotel, and a Starbucks, the outlet reported.

The AT&T store’s windows were vandalized while a worker was inside, Oregon Live reported.

Poor Uncle Joe, Some Texans made him uncomfortable.

And all Karen broke loose as the bus was spontaneously surrounded by cars bearing big pro-Trump flags and banners, putting on a show for the cameras. Nobody was violent, nobody was threatening. It obviously was an exuberant joie de vivre event to create something to post on social media.

Instead of just laughing it off and maybe saying 'my bus is bigger than your cars' or something, the Daily Beast, a reliable proxy for the Democrats, laid out the zero-humor Biden campaign's outraged response.

Joe Biden’s presidential campaign canceled a Friday event in Austin, Texas, after harassment from a pro-Trump contingent.

Texas has emerged as a battleground state in Tuesday’s presidential election, with polls showing the typically Republican stronghold now only marginally favoring President Donald Trump. The Biden campaign scheduled a Friday event in the state, in a bid to drum up last-minute support.

But when the Biden campaign bus drove to Austin, it was greeted by a blockade of pro-Trump demonstrators, leading to what one Texas House representative described as an escalation “well beyond safe limits.”

The Swamp was not amused by the humor of Trump supporters.

The FBI is investigating a “Trump Train” incident from Friday, in which a Biden campaign bus was surrounded by a dozen pickup trucks driven by Trump supporters as it traveled down a Texas interstate, according to a report.

The dangerous, caught-on-video highway confrontation led the Biden campaign and state Democrats to cancel multiple Texas events in the battleground state, the Texas Tribune reported.

There was least one minor collision on the I-35 between a campaign staffer’s car and the caravan of trucks full of flag-waving passengers, according to the Tribune.

As Charles says in the sidebar, defund the FBI.

The problem with legal weed? Illegal weed and kangaroos. Yes kangaroos.

Today in "what the actual heck?" we have a massive police bust just north of Toronto in which $150 million worth of illegally-grown marijuana was seized along with guns, crossbows and "several exotic animals."

Among the creatures found at one of 15 different properties searched during the raid were three kangaroos and two zebras. That's right, kangaroos and freaking zebras.

"Animal control was notified and is investigating," wrote York Regional Police in a new release announcing the raid and 37 resultant arrests on Thursday morning.

The exotic animals were located in Schomberg, Ontario, according to police, though it is not known where they were procured, what they were being used for, or how many animals were at the site in total.

What we do know is that the site in Schomberg was one of 15 across the GTA raided as the result of a three-month-long investigation called "Project Green Sweep."

One of my favorite past times is going to concerts. The Kung Flu put a stop to concerts.


Struggling Music Venues Find A Savior

The music industry has been one of the hardest hit since the outbreak of Covid-19 earlier this year.

A survey of 2,000 independent concert venue owners across all 50 states in the U.S. conducted by the National Independent Venue Association found that 90% expect to close for good within a few months if federal funding isn't provided.


"Independent venues were the first to close​ and will be the last to reopen​," the NIVA said. "Venues have zero revenue, but obligations like mortgage/rent, bills, loans, taxes, and insurance continue. We have no work to offer our employees for the foreseeable future. The shutdown is indefinite and likely to extend into 2021 as our venues are in the last stage of reopening."

With federal funding looking all but certain to not come in time to save these venues, Marc Geiger sees an opportunity to pitch his solution. Geiger, who formerly served as global head of the William Morris Endeavor Music Division from 2003 until 2020 and co-founded the music festival Lollapalooza, has formed what he calls SaveLive to essentially bail out struggling music venues.

SaveLive, which Geiger founded with former WME colleague John Fogelman, has landed $75 million in an initial investment round to invest in venues across the country by acquiring at least a 51% stake in each. SaveLive's plan is to invest in dozens of clubs across the U.S. to create a network of venues that will be prepared for live entertainment to hopefully return in 2022 by their estimates.

"One of my favorite things in the world is to go to a club, be treated well and see an incredible band," Geiger said. "So I thought, 'OK, I'm going to raise a bunch of money and I'm going to backstop all these clubs. I'm going to be a bailout solution for them, and I'm going to call the company SaveLive."

Despite having barely any other options, not everyone in the music industry is keen to SaveLive's move to bailout struggling venues.

"Geiger's solution on some level scares me," Frank Riley of High Road Touring told the New York Times. "He is going to buy distressed properties for money on the dollar and end up owning 51 percent of their business. Is that independent? I don't know. But it does save the platforms on which things grow and where artists are sustained."

Now That More Americans Can Work From Anywhere, Many Are Planning To Move Away. I did that in 2018.

As coronavirus cases continue to spike and working from home seems permanent, many Americans are planning to set off to live in new places.

An astonishing 14 million to 23 million Americans intend to relocate to a different city or region as a result of telework, according to a new study released by Upwork, a freelancing platform. The survey was conducted Oct. 1 to 15 among 20,490 Americans 18 and over,

The large migration is motivated by people no longer confined to the city where their job is located. The pandemic has shifted many companies' view on working from home. Facebook announced plans for half of its employees to work from home permanently. The company even hired a director of remote work in September to ease the transition.

Workers In Washington, D.C., Region Likely To Work From Home Until Next Summer
CORONAVIRUS LIVE UPDATES
Workers In Washington, D.C., Region Likely To Work From Home Until Next Summer
"As our survey shows, many people see remote work as an opportunity to relocate to where they want and where they can afford to live," says Adam Ozimek, chief economist at Upwork. "This is an early indicator of the much larger impacts that remote work could have in increasing economic efficiency and spreading opportunity."

But then again, I have a great employer.

Aladdin's Lamp is not real. Really. Tell it to our Genius Award Winner.

Two men who allegedly duped a doctor into buying an “Aladdin’s lamp” for more than £70,000 – even conjuring up a fake genie – have been arrested in India, according to officials.

Laeek Khan approached police in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh after he realised the lamp did not have any magical powers, as described in the popular folk tale about Aladdin and his wish-granting genie that appears when it is rubbed.

“The cheats had struck a deal for much more but the doctor had paid about 7m rupees (£72,000),” Amit Rai, a senior officer, told AFP. He said the men were arrested on Thursday and were remanded in custody ahead of charges being filed.

88 SaveLive at least is maybe better than a government bailout of live music venues. Trying to keep an open mind here.

I do miss the hell out of live music. I've been a musician since 1977 and last year I played in some Wednesday night bluegrass jams at a restaurant/bar, Thursday night blues jams at a different bar, and some open mic nights at an independent coffee house downtown (leftists but sweet people and I enjoyed the place until they went on COVID hiatus).

I miss the hell out of live music (that and baseball). I'm glad when the chance to take my family to see Alice Cooper and later Peter Frampton (shockingly good -- give his 2019 blues album a listen) came along during the summer of '19, I pulled the trigger.

149 My election day prediction.

If/when Trump wins MSM will refuse to announce it and Dems will not concede and insist ballots are coming in and being counted and screw the rules. When Trump refuses to cooperate and declares victory the MSM will scream about Trump stealing the election/refusing to concede/ dictator just like Hitler etc...and get the mobs worked up and chaos follows. After that, no telling what happens.

We remember him as a unifier because? HE WON. He was effective.

Just like Lincoln. He was a HUGELY divisive President, enough to start a Civil War... but we remember him as a great President, with fondness, because he won.

170 Antifa protesters took to the streets of suburban Vancouver, Washington, and burned American flags during their Halloween-night "anti-capitalism" protests. During one of these burnings, a protester yelled, "Death to your f**king empire!"

And they are coming back tonight for a third night of rioting.

Since almost all the rioters come from Portland, I wonder why no local has done anything creative to cars parked near the riots with Oregon plates. I mean, the least you could do is put Trump bumperstickers on all the cars.

The local cops have been recording license plates and VIN numbers, which just proves that we live in a fascist society.

Once the Trains completed their routes, they split and traveled all over the nearby city main thoroughfares. So inspiring! And mostly young folks driving those big pickups!

225 We really need for there to be a drive for honesty when they report these Muslim attacks on people.

Please note: They do not behead people. People tend to think of scenes they may have seen or imagined from books and movies where a big guy with a big sword comes out and chops someone's head off. Boom! Over.

No. The way it really happens with these latter day Mameluks isn't quick and it isn't over right away.

First they bind up the victim in some way. Just holding on to the arms by helpers is sometimes sufficient.

And THEN THEY SAW AWAY WITH A KNIFE AT THE NECK!
(this is why I believe they should show the videos of the beheadings just so we can be clear it is not quick)

All the while the victim is alive until they cut the arteries to the brain and then it's about 2-3 minutes after that.

It is a terrible way to die. It is terrorizing and it's done for exactly those reasons.

And any religion that promotes or practices this type of assault as being righteous should be recognized as evil and nothing to do with a Loving God no matter what they may claim.

What horrible public speaker she is, whiny, nasal voice,weird laugh, obviously fakes sincerity......Who ever thought it would be a good idea to put he on the ticket? She is appealing to no one The only explanation is she make Biden look good.

Best bet (given the params) IMO was Florida's Val Demings (an impeachment manager), though even Stacey Abrams would have offered more to the ticket. With extra FL or GA leverage, Biden's win% chance would be notably up.

I have vague memories of the quartermasters walking around the boat to set chronometers by noting the time in a greenbook and starting a stopwatch, then walking around to the next one and adding the elapsed time to the noted time. That can't have been real, can it?

Is NaCly around?
Posted by: hogmartin at November 01, 2020 10:14 PM (t+qrx)

I think they started the stop watch from a time standard, then would record the time difference between when they started the stop watch, and when they set the clock.

236 Willowed on an earlier thread so I'm reposting:

667 So I did the Capital Beltway Caravan. Drove around the entire Beltway. It started in the pouring rain and gradually the sun came out. In 4 hours saw about 6 people give us the finger and one gave us a thumbs down. I saw 4 people give us a thumbs us and one truck blow his horn in support.

There were at least two pickups with a decorated elephant in the flatbed and flags. There was one pickup with a Trump train on the bed and it blew smoke!!
Cutest: saw a young boy (maybe 5) wearing a suit and a GOLDEN SCALP waving from his car window!!

During the entire time, I only saw 3 Biden Harris bumper stickers (for the record they were not the people who gestured) and one Warren.

But it was awesome to see SO many supporters. Hope to find out estimate of # of participants.

They would get a time Sync via radio.

Then start a stop watch at the time sync.

Thus, if the sync was 8:02, and the stop watch was at 10 minutes? They would set 8:12, and record it.

248 Osama bin Laden, as a person, is far more understandable to me and far
less reprehensible, personally, psychologically, than Trump.
***

Osama wanted to force the world into submission to Islam. Sam Harris wants to force the world into submission to transnational progressivism.


Most Islamic theology and practice is in theory pretty abhorrent to transnational progressivies but...transnational progressivies don't really believe in anything of the stuff they say in way. They believe in power. What they are making people bend the knee over isn't as important as making them bend the knee.

So amusingly the left never really hated Osama as much as Osama hated them...

251 170 Antifa protesters took to the streets of suburban Vancouver, Washington, and burned American flags during their Halloween-night "anti-capitalism" protests. During one of these burnings, a protester yelled, "Death to your f**king empire!"

And they are coming back tonight for a third night of rioting.

Since almost all the rioters come from Portland, I wonder why no local has done anything creative to cars parked near the riots with Oregon plates. I mean, the least you could do is put Trump bumperstickers on all the cars.

The local cops have been recording license plates and VIN numbers, which just proves that we live in a fascist society.

Posted by: Romeo13 at November 01, 2020 10:40 PM (NgKpN)

I was in the big one on the jersey parkway today, and by accident. I was going south to visit my father. It was raining and I see in the distance a car with the flashers on, and 4 cars in front of him another car with flashers. Great, a frigging funeral I'm thinking, and as I got close i started seeing some pickups with trump flags. Holy shit, its a trump car train. They were in the slow lane, so I'm cruising by in the middle lane holding the thumbs up out the window and I'm getting horn honks. A few miles before my exit I said screw it and got in line. lol
Then I find out my brother was there, from the starting point. lol

About to turn in, but ISTR chronometers are manufactured to have very precise error rates. Small, but errors.

So if we lose INS, satellites, Lin-11, Link-16, cell phones, etc, than the navigator's chronometers can give us the right time.
The error observed is in the government green logbooks.

382 Was in a car Trump rally in Manhattan.

Traffic lights and roundabouts and stop signs chopped up what was a 300 car group at the start. Mostly positive responses. Even some parents pulling their small kids to the curb to wave to us.

Some focused hate, but I waved and said "Thank You, Karen" to them. (all young female, btw.). Took an hour to wind through Manhattan.

My wife ("I am a wife, not a sign wench!") waved her Women for Trump pink sign, especially liked it when two women in an adjacent car gave her the thumbs up.

406 The convictions and intellect of all Americans should be respected by ALL Americans, especially the president.



This is a lie.

If there is one thing I've learned in nearly 50 years on the planet, it's that I'm dumb as fuck.

And when I say that, I'm not being self-deprecating for humor. I'm genuinely fucking stupid.

Are there some things I'm good at? Sure, I have a discipline or two I'm semi-competent at, but even in those areas, I'm still largely retarded compared with people that are masters in those areas.

This is not the disrespect people think it is. You might be a nukular rocket surgeon, but you don't know Jack-fuck about what it is I do. And your stupid fucking opinion doesn't really matter if the two of us are figuring how to best staff and deal with logistics to serve 5000 people beer at a music festival. You are pig ignorant.

Likewise, if I come down to your nukular rocket factory and start telling you how I'd do it, feel free to jack slap the shit out of and call me a simpleton moron that needs to go back to his trailer park home.

Not everyone is equal. Lots of people are really fucking stupid about everything. They probably couldn't fuck if their penis didn't point the way first.

It's reality. 25% of the population is too dumb to carry out basic tasks without supervision. 50% are average at best, enough to not injure themselves. 20% are capable of learning and understanding concepts. 5% are exceptional.

This whole "respect everyone's intellect" is bullshit.

In fact, if you bothered to read this comment, you probably became incrementally less intelligent because it isn't even inspired or nuanced.

Most people aren't worth listening too.

When Camel-la ran for prosecutor in San Francisco, she took on a Chinese name! She ran (and narrowly won) as "He Jen-li." It caused such an uproar that the CA legislature, in a rare moment of sanity, banned the practice of taking on a fake ethnic name for the ballot. If Beto ever runs for president, he'll have to be Robert Francis O'Rourke in CA, and he can thank Camel-la for it!

The first real demonstration of Trump support I've seen in our city but it was yuge. And that "progressive" gathering that was supposed to take place down the street from us? Never happened. I bet it was cancelled for lack of interest.

We came across the caravan while driving home from one of our favorite restaurants -- a neighborhood bar that serves great pizza. Because Lord Humongous imposed another indoor dining lockdown on our area we wanted to support this restaurant. Quite a few establishments are defying this order. I am seriously beginning to wonder if Trump could pull off an upset in IL... but even if he doesn't, it will be closer than it's been in a while.

529 On the "nice" issue: Nice is what people demand when they have no God.

There is no reason whatsoever to behave if there is no God. No 10 Commandments, no love your neighbor, no reason at all. And none of the "elite" atheists can tell you why, but they all claim you can just be "nice" and everything will be fine.

Of course, they are not nice, particularly to those who DO believe in Him, and follow Him. They call us idiots, or say we worship an invisible sky friend, or tell us we are hypocrites because we sin from time to time. Not nice at all.

But when you have no God, how do you define "nice?" You can't. It is all relative, and self-serving, and horseshit used to beat up their "opponents."

So, we pray for them, even if we don't hold out much hope for their salvation.

We pray every day for President Trump! He's been a miracle for our country!

I remember 4 years ago:

Was totally depressed about the election, assumed hildebeast would win, so went to bed early...

Next morning before work, hubby says to me "we have a new president" and I shuddered, thinking *Duh, Obastard can't serve a third term, and hildebeast must've won...*

"Trump won."

I immediately fell to my knees, there on the kitchen floor at 4am, and thanked GOD for that!

May this election be just as miraculous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I don't agree with any of that. It is a well accepted idea, but it doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

For one thing, there was no open path to Washington. The City of Washington was heavily fortified and the Army of the Potomac was not going to let Lee simply disengage and beat them to their capital. You should check up on the Pipe Creek Line. It was between Lee and DC and it was where Meade had planned to make his defense before the fighting started at Gettysburg.

Also, the only chance the CSA had to win that war was to get the USA to quit the fight. US morale and support for the war was at its lowest point in 1864, while Grant and Lee were slugging it out in the Overland Campaign. Gettysburg was a memory at that point.

It is not that the CSA could not have won. It is that they didn't win. Somehow that turned into the idea they could not have won. And many in the South pushed that idea after the war.

578 .22 LR Sub Sonic shows a +36 ft. trajectory drop at 370 yards, at which point the bullet is basically pointed downwards and no longer travelling forward.

I had Rancher Bob fire a magazine of five rounds from my CZ 452 Lux, .22LR. 24 inch barrel, Sub Sonic ammo.

To put him onto steel at 100 yards, I slid the elevator on the leaf rear-sight to the 125 yard mark. And he shot five for five.

All that was to be heard was the metallic "click" of the striker hitting the rimfire case, and the "clang!" of the bullet smacking steel.

AOP's tactic is correct, but make the range 150 yards from DEEP cover, and let fly.

......

I resist the urge all the time to let people become the victim of their own failures.

Part of my business is going to set up bars for private events and wedding receptions.

They call me, I give them my advice on how to best handle the event. I've literally done thousands of these.

It goes in one ear and out the other. They'll pay $5000 for flowers and try to save $10 picking up ice themselves for the bar.

Then I'll show up and it will be a complete shit show. And everyone will be freaking out and some father of the bride will be running to a dollar store to buy storage bins and the convenience store for ice in his three piece suit while the bride is crying, the mom is prancing about in full Karen mode and then I scramble around on the triple-time trying to make Mojitos out of a galvanized bucket, scooping ice with a wooden spoon and putting them in a styrofoam coffee cup.

Or worse, I've got one of my employees calling me on a cel phone while I'm at another job saying "What the f*ck boss?" like I can reach through a cellphone with my magic bartending hand and solve issues.

And a big part of me thinks "Good, ruin your special day, IDGAF".

But I just have too much damn sympathy. So I wind up loading up shit they didn't pay for, taking to events knowing they are gonna fuck it all up, partly because I want to make sure somebody else's shortsightedness doesn't ruin their day, partly because it makes my life easier.

But I fight the urge every week to just go "Good, watch it burn mutherfucker. You knew better."

But I just don't have it in me to not care.

594 @305 i've started seeing Trump bumper stickers her in the very bluest parts of Lost Angels, and some trump flags as well.

i've been wearing my Trump 2020 "Four More Years" out in public, expecting rude comments and stinkeyes all around.

------------------

Good for you.

I saw "Trump 2020" on one pillar under a freeway overpass, and "Make California Red" (all in red spray paint) on the next while driving through Pasadena the other day.


I'm seeing encouraging signs, though I don't think Trump is actually going to win the state. But I'd be happy just knocking out the Dem super-majority in both legislative houses.

595 Beautiful warm day today, nice short hike down near the water. One thing: my gawd, the number of idiots wearing masks - outside, with a breeze, 100 feet from the ocean.

Not that I was all that impressed before this, but my assessment of a great % of the American population has decreased by an order of magnitude in the last few months. Very scary, to see such an incurious, ignorant, docile populace, misled by such clownishly unserious, unprofessional, incompetent public officials.

And then ....... the boss gloriously suggested, since she was feeling weak and couldn't handle stopping just for coffee, that we go by Dunkin Donuts and get something to go with coffee. We went to our usual place to consume - artificial island facing North Island right next to the airport.

Remnants of the Trump boat parade were still there. People camped out, cars with flags honking, etc. We marveled at how nice and odd it was to see this kind of aggressive, open Trump support in public, in CA. Even at the nice restaurants at the end of the island, many cars parked with Trump banners, signs, etc. sticking out. One wouldn't do that just anywhere, even here, where things are generally just softer edged and mellower than most places. But no problems.

604 I know Jesse Hughes has been raking about trying to do tons of concerts with either EoDM or his smaller band The Battery Electric once this is over, in order to get local venues some revenue. He mentioned trying to do like big events where they get bands for every club in town. It really is a big deal too, because without these small venues they'll be a few years where up and coming bands have moo place to play, especially since so many governments will try to squash larger independent shows or parking lot type concerts that aren't affiliated to some huge corporation.

About this coming election night, I've thought for some time now Trump should give an address Tuesday morning, saying that win or lose we need to stay peaceful, we can't have towns destroyed because you didn't get your way. Then if that does happen hopefully he declares martial law and sends the army in to round up antifa members and catapult them into the sun.

607 RE: Kim Klacik

Talk about conflicted...

1) The woman has raised & spent over $15 million!...

2) In a hopeless House race in Baltimore. Where $15 million likely means she MIGHT lose to the incumbent DEM (an adzh*le, admittedly) by 40% instead of 75%.

3) Her ads are brilliant. She is quite attractive (in a non-traditional way) & unusually articulate too, by any standard of comparison.

So... what the hell is she doing? Not running for Congress in any real sense. It's hard to see how she's setting herself up for another, higher office-- not in MD, anyway.

Maybe she wants to be in Trump's second term Cabinet?

Her whole deal is fascinating & strange. I've seen more of her Youtube ads than Trump & Biden combined.

615 @348 She's on the ticket because she's black and female and that is the only reason. They needed a black female and they found one. Oh, also, she doesn't look like a tank.

-----------------

My belief is that she was supposed to be the annointed one for this election. She's a woman, and a minority, so she'd check those boxes. And she was from California, and had the support of Big Tech, and all the money that means. Plus, she's an idiot who appears to be quite menable to whomever is pulling the strings in the Dem party these days. In other words, she'd be the perfect puppet in the White House.

And then Tulsi Gabbard single-handedly destroyed her in a debate, and put an end to that idea.

I think the same people still want to get her into the White House. And since Biden's clearly not going to be long for the office if he wins, putting her on the ticket is a stealth way of getting around the will of the voters.

1896 was one, 1932 was another, and perhaps 1968 as the new deal coalition finally died. All of them were close elections at the time but ended up with consequential changes in the electorate in hindsight. We are overdue for another but people are also living longer now.

649 The other thing about Pickett's Charge is that wasn't even Lee's plan on day three. He wanted to do anather flank attack on the Union right and coordinate than with Stuart's attack in the rear. Nothing went right, there was no coordination, and his corps commanders acted "haltingly". When all that failed, he went with the attack on the middle mainly because that is where Picket came into line and he was the only one with fresh troops.


The thing about Gettsyburg is that it is an incredible and complex story. The more you study it, the more complicated it becomes. But, there is a point where a light comes on, at least it did for me. The biggest error of historical memory for me is the idea that the CSA would have won the war if they won that battle. What ifs usually have no meaning, but really the key to the war was getting the USA to quit.

They were pissed after Gettysburg. Lincoln went into a deep funk and made clear how angry and despondent he was. The New York Draft riots happened after Gettysburg. In fact, many troops that served at Gettysburg went to New York to stop the riots.

Of course Vicksburg fell the day after the battle of Gettsyburg. And that was a true and complete loss for the CSA war effort. An entire army surrendered there.

This may be projection on my part in thinking that most people keep parts hidden from view, and some people present fronts that are not 100% congruent with reality but shaded more by what they would like the world to be. This is easier on an anonymous forum.

this is not an insult to anyone, it has the benefit of making people easier to get along with, but there is always the risk of being seen as a betrayal if the truth comes out. Especially if people become emotionally invested in the character.

However, the New Yorker cartoon said that on the internet no-one knows you are a dog, but that is not totally true. Being a boring twerp always shines through. It is hard to disguise being an idiot,

I've had one for a few years now, it's really nice at first but you
need to keep up with it by tossing it in the dryer to puff up. My
thought is it needs either twice the fill or half the fabric, because
if not it does tend to push to the sides, leaving you with your head on
the mattress.

I have used them a long time. Maybe things have changed but years ago you could only buy a generic size pillow at the store. You had to go to the website to get one that fit you based on your size.

They are good pillows. But they can come apart, they don't last forever. But there is a pretty good replacement policy.

Out there I learned that heat is heat. 114 degrees and I got burned on every damn thing made of metal. Touch a metal banister, poof, loose a finger. Lean against a pole, poof, permanent tattoo. Walk 100 yards and you're shoes melt on the pavement. Sit in a car and you know what an ant under a magnifying glass feels like while you feel this little tiny wisp of cool coming from the dash vents that dies 6 inches from your face because the heat killed it dead.

683 The other thing about Pickett's Charge is that wasn't even Lee's plan on day three. He wanted to do anather flank attack on the Union right and coordinate than with Stuart's attack in the rear. Nothing went right, there was no coordination, and his corps commanders acted "haltingly". When all that failed, he went with the attack on the middle mainly because that is where Picket came into line and he was the only one with fresh troops.

We visited Gettysburg for the first time this summer, second week of July so right after the actual battle took place.

718 Pennsyltucky,

Well, not quite sure about that, we now have early voting and absentee ballots mainly in. From those, if you want to spend the money, you can backtrace who is actually showing up demos in far larger numbers than any polling sample.

The naive model, like Dave in Fla is making no assumptions other than registered Dems are voting for Biden and registered Reps are voting for Trump. In states with no registration, then primary voting histories of voters are used as a proxy. He is splitting Indeps 50/50. The Republicans have been overperforming on early voting and absentee to some extent compared with previous years. The high likelihood Republican voters have not cast their ballot yet while the Dems high likelihood pool has been depleted by EV and absentee. Thus, the Republicans have an easier lift than Dems on turnout operations on Election Day.

But, if this is a wave election, and Biden's comments on bringing about another lockdown, fracking bans, and other such unpopular topics with little to vote for a Biden ticket, we could be seeing a preference cascade where the Indep. go 60-40 Trump in EV and election day and Trump gets 15-20 percent registered Dems in some states plus overwhelming turnout from high propensity Reps. such as 69-27 percent.

The banked early vote and the electorate being different demographically makes a difference but if the working class voters turn out and the young are not, you could see something like GHWB beating Dukakis in 1988 with Trump winning 53-54 percent of the vote versus 45-46 for Biden. That would probably also come close to flipping the House which TJM would know more about as he is tracking those. That would also probably mean holding the Senate with maybe even a small gain.

Yes, I was referring to the 3-day total. It took over 2 years to bury all of the dead. The Confederates eventually retrieved their dead and took them home.

I don't ever want to see the United States go through something like that again. The communist thugs tearing down statutes and trashing the memories of those long-dead men have no idea how difficult it must have been for the country to come back together and move forward, putting the Civil War behind them. Over half a million dead over the course of those couple of years.

The Left is playing with fire, the fact that the White House is having to put up fortifications right now terrifies me. These thugs are doing the work of a foreign power and most of their voters have no clue.

Sun Tzu's "Art of War" is a mainstay of military wisdom.

One thing it teaches is you don't attack a well fortified enemy position across a mile of open field.

Posted by: attila the curious at November 01, 2020 11:58 PM (w7KSn)

Historians say Sun Tzu lost a lot of battles. The book is most famous in modern times because MBA's and other civilians read it.
OF course Lee made mistakes. Every general made mistakes. Grant made lots of mistakes that cost a lot of lives. But he won the war. If someone thinks the CSA would have been better off without Lee or if there was someone else who could have done better, they are incorrect. The only name that comes up is Jackson. But if you know Jackson, you would know he would have been a horrible army commander. He had no personnel skills.

Of course the attack on the third day called Picketts charge was not the best idea. It was not ideal and Lee knew that. He didn't think he had another option. And his infantry had succeeded in frontal assaults before that battle, and commanders on both sides ordered frontal assaults after that battle.
Every student at West Point knew frontal assaults were not ideal. You can try to maneuver and do it by the book, but the enemy often has a say in this. Lee attacked the flanks over and over, including at Gettysburg.

You should ask Grant about frontal assaults. He tried to flank Lee's army over and over during the Overland campaign. But almost every time Lee outmaneuvered him and the fight ended up a frontal assault.

Posted by: Gaelic Girl at November 02, 2020 12:17 AM (5FCda)

764 The 50,000 number was an error of understanding by
civilians over the years. There were 50,000 casualties total on both
sides. casualties included men who were killed, wounded, captured,
missing, and otherwise unable to report for duty.





Posted by: Quint at November 02, 2020 12:00 AM (8CxrO)

--------------------



Yes, I was referring to the 3-day total. It took over 2 years to
bury all of the dead. The Confederates eventually retrieved their dead
and took them home.



I don't ever want to see the United States go through something like
that again. The communist thugs tearing down statutes and trashing the
memories of those long-dead men have no idea how difficult it must have
been for the country to come back together and move forward, putting
the Civil War behind them. Over half a million dead over the course of
those couple of years.



The Left is playing with fire, the fact that the White House is
having to put up fortifications right now terrifies me. These thugs are
doing the work of a foreign power and most of their voters have no
clue.



Posted by: Boots at November 02, 2020 12:09 AM (oGBso)

agreed. It is scary what is going on. And those that fought in the Civil War on the USA side would be aghast at how so many care so little about the union. Now days, many want to just take their ball and go home when things get bad.

But I want to be clear here. The 50,000 casualty figure IS for the entire battle. There were around 10,000 killed in action. That number is probably higher because back then they were very strict. If you died the next day, it doesn't count as a battlefield death. And it was the biggest battle in American history and the most destructive. But yeah, 50,000 were not killed there. And I used to think this too because it is taught and mentioned all the time. But the number is wrong.

768 I have used them a long time. Maybe things have changed but years ago you could only buy a generic size pillow at the store. You had to go to the website to get one that fit you based on your size.

They are good pillows. But they can come apart, they don't last forever. But there is a pretty good replacement policy.

Posted by: Quint at November 01, 2020 11:49 PM (8CxrO)

Yeah I got mine either on the website or shopping network, you had the choice of which you wanted. I got the one meant for bigger people who wasn't a firm pillow (even though I'm on the short/thin side) I basically try to roll one end up so that all the fill takes up half the pillow.

I still recommend it over anything even close to it in price, but if I had money to spend I'd go with the thick temperpedic pillow, but not for $150.

I would probably be happy with a pillow case filled with bricks though.

that is how it has been taught for over a hundred years. But it makes no sense really. Like I said, Vicksburg falling was worse and that was the day after the battle. And the USA was a democratic republic with elections. At any point the American populace could have decided to let the CSA go. They came close in 1864.

it was a bad loss for the Confederacy and a great victory for the USA. The High Water Mark idea was pushed by the US Park Service for years. Yes it some ways it was. It was the end of a string of victories. It was also the last time the CSA invaded the North. But no one knew that at this time.

I agree Lee was mostly on the defensive other than Early's Raid late in the war. But even on the defensive, Lee's army did a lot of damage. Their plan was always to cause as much damage and loss so that the USA would say enough is enough. And again, Union support for the war was at its nadir in 1864. Gettysburg was July 1863.

Grant's biggest problem in the Overland Campaign was that the Army of the Potomac was not the instrument that the Western armies were.

Also, if Ben Butler had done his job and captured Petersburg, we would have been looking at a drastically shortened war and a probable Butler presidency in 1868.

830 824, Attilla, Back in the day before modern marketing and TV, politicians had to be entertaining in order to hold audiences at rallies.

That has been lost to modern marketing and communications where everything is fake.

I think that is one of the things that enrages the left the most--their leaders have been phonies and empty as are their legacies.

PDT is genuine.

Posted by: whig at November 02, 2020 12:46 AM (pO7gM)

831 329 quite possible if there's a wave effect (which I think is fairly likely), with NV and NM among the wins, and assuming the big 3 (PA MI WI) and MN also go for Trump (which I expect). Going higher than that would be OR and VA. There are plausible scenarios for both, but they're not highly probable.

As Dave in Fla rightly points out, Trump starts out almost certainly with 260 (he gets FL OH NC). Thus he only needs WI or MN or MI or PA - any single one of them - to win. Or even NH and NV.

If the polling miss is of the type and dimension I think it might be, Trump will be in the 320s for EV. There's reason to think that suburban shy Trump demo is significant. And a monster R turnout on Tuesday is also likely. The down-ticket and state-level consequences may be no less sweet than the presidential ones.

Posted by: Captain Obvious, USS Sea Chump at November 02, 2020 12:31 AM (xRn8c)

I grew up with a friend (named Butler, natch) was was a descendant of Ben Butler. He enjoyed telling a rather famous story about old Ben - at one point he was in charge of the Military Occupation of New Orleans, where he was accused of stealing a great deal of silver from the wealthy families, as well as the Virtue of their daughters. Later on, he was elected to Congress, and was giving a speech on the floor. Some of his political enemies, seeking to shame him, had contrived a way to run a string down from the ceiling, and they tied a silver spoon to it. While he was speaking , they lowered the spoon to where it was dangling right over his head, as a reminder of all of the old Theft allegations against him.

Ben saw the gallery laughing, looked around, and then looked up and saw the spoon. Rather than getting flustered, he reached up, snatched it out of the air and said "Must have been one I missed!!!" and then Continued on with his speech.

872 @844 Things like the fate of the entire Pacific War turning on a single miraculous 15 minute time span at the battle of Midway. Those are the things that make you go "huh".

-----------------

That 15 minutes hinged on a number of other events, including quite possibly the sacrifice of all three of the torpedo bomber squadrons. I hate to say it, but if Ring - the lead pilot from Hornet's group - had let himself be persuaded by Torpedo 8 instead of going off on his "flight to nowhere" and completely missing the battle, then it's possible that some of the Japanese Zeroes might have stayed at high elevation, and the element of surprise that so utterly doomed the Japanese carriers might have been lost.

Great for the SBDs. But it sucked for the Devastator crews that were wiped out almost to a man keeping the Zeroes down at sea level (including Yorktown's torpedo bombers that were able to arrive along with the carrier's dive bombers and fighters, and suffered the same fate as Enterprise's torpedo bombers).


Another couple in the Pacific are the Second Naval Battle of Guadalcanal, and pretty much anything involving Salt Lake City (who I refer to as the "luckiest unlucky ship of the War").

As a country, we don't have 28 years of slack left in us.

President Donald J. Trump is a charismatic American leader, and through the force of his personality is fighting the Communist Chinese invasion of the United States.

And this is as it has to be, because this is the new battlefield. China can't extend itself militarily across the Pacific, so instead it has purchased American traitors, like the Bidens, Clintons, Diane Feinstein, name the democrat and you will find a financial tie to China somewhere. The Confucius Institutes at our universities, the stealing of our technology and the soft takeover of our tech and social media companies.

And the unleashing of the Wuhan Flu on the world. That was no accident, it was an act of biological warfare. With willing accomplices in our government - Fauci, Birx, all the others - again working against US and with China.

Torpedo 8 was wiped out an hour before Enterprise's dive bombers arrived, plenty of time to get back to altitude. What did the Japanese in was the tempo of operations, constantly having to launch and receive fighters, keeping them from spotting the deck for a strike against Spruance.

You would like Ken Burn's Civil War. Shelby Foote was a fan of Forrest, at least as a General. I personally don't think much of the man. Sure he was tactically brilliant, but he could never have risen to a higher rank. He was an atrocious subordinate for one. While he caused all types of chaos for the Union, he never changed the outcome of a major battle that I know of.

The thing with generals and commanders is although they might be great at one level, they are often ill fitted for the next level. The Peter Principle rings true here. Forrest was tremendous on the battlefield, at a certain level. But he would have been a poor army commander.

Hood was possibly the greatest brigade commander of the war. But he kept getting promoted and he is now known for failure. Same with Jackson and Longstreet. They were excellent corps commanders, maybe the two best in the entire war, at least on the CSA side. But even the idea that they could have replaced Lee seems laughable to most serious historians I have read.

Sherman was incredible at what he did. But if he did not have Grant over him, he would not have done so well. He admitted this himself. He needed to be the number two guy, not the number 1.

I miss that kind of guy in today's politics. I mean, Butler was a bum, but he never lied about any of it, and he never pretended to be ashamed of anything he'd done. He was who he was, and tough shit if you didn't like it.

900 As a country, we don't have 28 years of slack left in us.

President Donald J. Trump is a charismatic American leader, and through the force of his personality is fighting the Communist Chinese invasion of the United States.

And this is as it has to be, because this is the new battlefield. China can't extend itself militarily across the Pacific, so instead it has purchased American traitors, like the Bidens, Clintons, Diane Feinstein, name the democrat and you will find a financial tie to China somewhere. The Confucius Institutes at our universities, the stealing of our technology and the soft takeover of our tech and social media companies.

And the unleashing of the Wuhan Flu on the world. That was no accident, it was an act of biological warfare. With willing accomplices in our government - Fauci, Birx, all the others - again working against US and with China.

903 Hood was possibly the greatest brigade commander of the war. But he kept getting promoted and he is now known for failure.
-------
Big problem with Hood is that by the time he reached Army command, he had been severely wounded twice. That has an effect on a man. Also, he had the same problem that Grant had that I mentioned upthread. The Army of Tennessee was not the instrument that the Army of Northern Virginia was. Hood's plan for Peachtree Creek was a good one, but his subordinates were not capable of carrying it out.

905 @885 Torpedo 8 was wiped out an hour before Enterprise's dive bombers arrived, plenty of time to get back to altitude. What did the Japanese in was the tempo of operations, constantly having to launch and receive fighters, keeping them from spotting the deck for a strike against Spruance.

----------------

But the course of events wasn't "VT-8 gets shot down, and then an hour later the dive bombers arrive." VT-8 arrived, and pulled the fighters down to sea level. It got wiped out, with a single survivor watching from the ocean. Then VT-6 arrived. It got shot down. Then VT-3 arrived. It got shot down.

But just as everyone in the fleet was patting themselves on the back after having survived three attacks. the dive bombers started their plunges. And all of the fighters were low on fuel, low on ammo, and - worst of all - far too low to do any good against dive bombers even if they'd had fuel and ammo.


And on a related note -

Oddly enough, there were two VT-8s in the battle. Hornet was supposed to be getting the new model of torpedo bombers (she and Saratoga were the only carriers that could land them safely at that time). Saratoga brought half of the squadron with her when she arrived just after the battle. The other half was already on Midway, and participated in the battle from there. They didn't do any better, though, and iirc only a single one of those planes survived. The "new" squadron was also called VT-8, since it was supposed to be taking over that role on Hornet. If things had gone as planned, then Waldron and his men wouldn't have been flying off of Hornet. They either would have been back in the States, or flying off of Midway.

There simply is no enthusiasm for Joey or Heels Up, no ground game (except for his basement studio play), early voting is not breaking the Dems' way, plus all the recent violence unleashed by the Dems' Pantyfa/Burn Loot Murder 'army'.

The polling is way off, again, due to no one wanting to talk to pollsters so the pollsters make wild-assed guesses. The Silent Trump Supporter is real. Trump will even win the popular vote, not that that means anything except to shut up lefties. Looking at the 2016 Electoral map by counties, one sees that it is bigly red. Flipping a few of those blue counties gives Trump the popular vote. As some wag here said, NY being too close to call will be a laugh out loud moment, not that Trump will win NY but he will do much better than the last time and that equals more overall votes.

Yes, they were down on the hangar deck, with bombs ready to be mounted on aircraft, and torpedoes removed from strike aircraft still around. And, unlike American carriers, they didn't drain fuel lines and fill them with CO2 as was our practice at the time when there was an incoming raid.

912 I am elated that Joe started tweeting out support for an assault weapons ban today, 2 days before the election - because there's only one possible reason for his campaign to be doing it. First, remember that they have studiously avoided saying anything about this for the last 8 months, they know it's a campaign killer in the target audience they need to reach. So why do it, especially at this late date?

Because they're looking at the early returns - and they realize the party faithful they were counting on to show up haven't voted in anywhere near the numbers they need them to. They also realize they've lost the working class pro-gun vote for good, and they're writing them off completely. This is a desperate last minute attempt to try and get a few more of the Faithful to show up and vote, people who were supposed to have voted already.

they're desperate. This is a flop-sweat move.

Of all the CSA figures I have studied and perhaps admired my favorite is Nathaniel Bedford Forrest.


He was a civilian, he started up a regiment on his own, he consistently defeated Union forces with inferior numbers.


After the war he repented all of it. Said he was wrong about every single thing he did.


Takes a brave man to do that.


Posted by: attila the curious at November 02, 2020 01:00 AM (w7KSn)

he was probably talking about the slave trading and Klan leadership. He should have repented though I have heard the repentance has been overstated. No reason to repent fighting well in a war. The soldiers on both sides didn't care what your beliefs were, they wanted competency and disdained anyone who wasted them. Look at Polk, "The Bishop". The troops didn't think much of him regardless of piety. Same for General Howard on the USA side. Although I think Howard got short shrift at Gettysburg, he was not that bad.

As whig notes, this kind of desperate, and radical, signal at this point would mostly be hitting voters who are already with Joe.

Using the (entirely justified) slam of "gun grabber", with this fresh evidence, to motivate the gun owners who might be lazy voters - and also give the gun-owning Dems in these states one more reason to not vote Joe on Tuesday - seems like it would be a lot more productive.

Correct, although I could make the argument that Eisenhower being C-in-C of SHAEF was a political position. He had to control both Patton and Monty and make them get along. One could also say G.H.W. Bush was more bureaucrat than politician but he had been a Rep in the House for a few years.

One more irony concerning Eisenhower is after the war and before becoming POTUS, he was President of Columbia University. I can't see anything like that ever happening again, a victorious US general becoming president of a major university, nit with the way schools are today.

I do believe it was the California State Convention, and not the General Campaign.

The meet n' greet was at the newly opened Sea World, in Mission Bay.

The Speech was at the El Cortez Hotel, in San Diego, proper.

Foote was great in Burn's doc. Personally I would pay the most attention to what Ed. Bearss has to say. Not to be mean, but Foote as a historian was as great novelist. Joking aside, Foote was a novelist, that was his trade. He was not a historian.

Speaking of Jeff Davis. I am reading Mcpherson's book on Davis now. So many trash Davis for whatever reason. He was on the losing side and didn't have Lee's charisma, so there is that. But even Mcpherson shows Davis did a good job as commander in chief. it is difficult to say someone did a good job when we they lost, and most everyone thinks they should have lost in a just world. But still, he did not do a bad job from what I have read.

That moment captured in the picture was no fake Greek Columns, painted haloes, Lightbringer, calling him a deity, etc. that were examples of what you cited.

996 Catton's books are cannon really. One the CSA side you have Douglas Southall Freeman. If one wants to do a deep dive on Gettysburg go for The Gettysburg Campaign, A study in Command by Coddington. But that is for a real deep dive into the minutia.

I really like anything written by Stephen Sears. His book on Gettysburg was really well done. The book on tape is a great way to go if that it your want. The one thing that kills me about books on tape is that the readers sound good but have no clue what they are talking about. There is always this one moment when you realize this is so. It is usually when they mispronounce a name. You forget they have no clue because they sound well and the text is good, but they have no real clue about the text. In the Gettysburg book by Sears, you have to hear the guy mispronounce Harry Heth's name about a hundred times. It is pronounced Heeth, not heth.

it is still a good way to pass the time. But I listened to a book on tape a while back and had to hear about Warren Buffay for many hours.

i once took my father with dementia to the dentist. I take that back, I did this more than once. But there was this one time that stands out.. My dad sat there while the dentist pecked away. He might have been hurting him, there is really no way we could know. But then the dentist put on the yellow light to check for mouth cancer I think. My dad had been still for an hour but that was enough. It freaked him out.

The visit was over but when the dentist, a friend from church reached out to shake his hand. My dad took his hand and squeezed like crazy. I was there and had to pull them apart. Then I had to grab him and get him out of that place. I took a blow or two but it was no big deal. I saw his eyes and knew it was go time. I had no choice and had to grab him.

Alzheimers is a terrible disease. But not once did I blame my father for his malady. He suffered and so did we. But he did not ask for this.

agreed. the war was horrific. We have never seen deaths to equal it. one thing I point out to others when it comes up is the battle of Shiloh had more deaths than all previous American wars combined. And most people no nothing about the battle of Shiloh.

But one thing that does bother me is the idea that somehow those who commanded armies in the Civil War handled them poorly and we know better today. The idea is they were "stupid" to line up and shoot each other. We today know they should have used fire and maneuver. They were using Napoleonic tactics and didn't realize the lethality of rifles.

I am not saying you are saying this, let me be clear about that. But many people do think this way. It is the same as those that say Lee was stupid for ordering Pickett's Charge.

These leaders knew more about war in that time than we will ever know. Many were highly trained and they also learned from battle lessons. The reality is the weaponry and technology at that time necessitated linear tactics. It was the only way to command men in battle, and coordinate fire.

If troops back then used fire and maneuver, the war might still be going on with no resolution. There was a point where they had to come to a resolution, the sooner the better. And the only way to put heavy fire at the right place, at the right time, was linear tactics and massed fire.

It is a myth that they used Napoleonic tactics. They were not stupid during the Civil War. They didn't have cavalry assaults on infantry. They did not bring up Artillery so that it could be shot down by infantry. They did quicken marching counts in order to close with the enemy faster and prevent rifled muskets from taking them out before they could get into position.

The last years of the war had major entrenchments that looked more like ww1 than the was with Mexico. They had flankers, vedettes, and pickets all over the place trying to find and distract the enemy. They rarely used bayonets on each other, but that was likely a cultural thing. It was a line neither side wanted to cross.

This is a complicated subject. A good book on this is by Earl Hess if anyone is interested. But what grinds my gears is people today that think because they were born at a later date, they know better than those who actually fought the battles. Again, if they were running around like Rambo, with the weapons they had, we might still be trying to decide that thing.

On nights like that every booze party ends in a fight. Meek little wives feel the edge of the carving knife and study their husbands' necks. Anything can happen. You can even get a full glass of beer at a cocktail lounge.

"Red Wind"

1067 Before radio, the difficulty of controlling any formation of significant size -- and the greater difficulty of coordinating formations of significant size -- was a huge problem. I wonder if the German concept of mission-oriented tactics and leaders' greater authority for independent action was a recognition that, being the middle state, this problem had to be addressed with the resources at hand.

good point. Radio was the key really. and with the weapons they had back then, the only way to mass fire where you wanted it was to mass troops. The only way to keep troops in line was to actually keep them in line. There were so many examples where units broke the line or order of battle and and it became a shit show. You could see that at the famous battle for Little Round Top.

Lee was well known for giving his corps, division, and brigade commanders leeway to make independent decisions on the ground. you can draw up a battle plan, but things often change. The commanders on the ground must have the leeway to alter the plan and react to what they see.

Fall is glorious! Lots of color and cooler temps. Don't forget the harvesting! Farmers driving on the highway, woohoo! Lots of dust and leaf crumbs.
Winter is .... Fuck I hate cold weather. Hubbymayhem is from upstate NY and his opinion of Indiana winter is "Meh, I can still find my golf ball. And why are you whining about 25 degrees? I'm wearIng a t-shirt until it actually gets cold!"

The absolute hotest I have been in my life was Crane IN. Worked down therein 12 and 13. I think it was 13 it was so fucking hot we joked about the hotel running out of cold water when we got back to clean up. I got down to about 167 as I could not keep enough water in my body.

Same weather tomorrow, so it's detail the car interior. For entertainment, I have Hulu, and can watch Deputy U. S. Marshal Raylin Givens shoot people.

1145 NY Post

Norpoths own predictive model for presidential elections correctly identifies the winner of 25 out of the last 27 contests including every race involving an incumbent. The forecast, based on primary results and other indicators of party cohesion, has never been thrown off by pre-election polls or news events.

The model foresees a 362-electoral-vote Trump victory.

the basic cable channels like TBS, TV Land, and Comedy Central have been running these spots nonstop. I didn't know people who like old sitcoms needed to be told to vote 50 times a day for no reason.

These companies are at virtual war with half the country. Yeah they can flat out lie and say they aren't pushing for a particular side. So let me get this straight, they have wasted millions because of some generic civic duty? I remember when private companies used to charge candidates for air time. Yeah, for sure it is new when all of the media has decided to tip the scales in this country.

Masks, as worn and handled by 99% of the general population, are not effective and in many cases counter productive. (We here all know why, and i won't re-hash it here).

A national mask mandate will cause the masses to have a false sense of security, thus increasing the overall spread of this disease.

Can anyone else remember ever seeing so much "GO VOTE!!!" or "You're awesome if you go vote!!!" bullsh*t everywhere? There's a commercial every ten minutes on every TV channel, billboards, Google has it for the second day running on their phone homepage, Roku made a patriotic background, etc. etc. And all because #OrangeManBad

First time I've ever seen this. I don't WANT you to vote if you don't know where or how.

Sports too. NFL RedZone covers every game in the NFL from 1pm to 8pm. I think every NFL stadium either had "Go Vote!" crap on the field or somewhere in the stands.

There were also the Seahawks who had names of people on the back of their helmets (Russell Wilson had Breonna Taylor, some WR had Emmett Till, bunch of others had Ahmed Aubrey).

Then there is the "End Racism" crap near the End Zones. And the "It Takes All of Us" messages for "Crucial Catch" regarding cancer awareness month.

I wonder if there will be a big push back on sports leagues to knock off the messaging shit. When people turn on games, they want to watch games, not be preached to about anything, even good causes like cancer awareness.

Players and the league want to have commercials about this stuff air during the game, great, knock yourselves out. Want to contribute to charities and efforts of your choice on your own time, great, knock yourselves out.

But, this constant politicizing of every professional sports game during the game needs to stop.

I get the whole "Confederates were traitors

BUT - the United States pardoned them. We made Confederate soldiers veterans of the United States military.

Our family has watched America's Funniest Home Videos for years now. Generally family-friendly and fun for the kids.

The most recent $10K winners (from a camera in their homes for the prize announcement, because COVID) were a black man, white woman, two mixed-race daughters. It was a cute enough video, but nothing special.

Something else was very important, though.
