Saturday Morning Coffee Break

***


This morning's deep thought: I want to be 14 again and ruin my life differently. I have new ideas.


Good morning Horde. Just a couple of rules here in this open thread.
Rules? Of course there are rules!

1A) No pulling the 'ettes hair.
1B) No you can't use the inkwells.
2) No running with sharp objects.
3) Chew with your mouths closed.
4) Be nice to one another.
5) Have a great weekend!

______________

Why even bother?

He knew his homies in the media and deep state would take care of it for him.

And they did.

Hunter is now out in California, living his best life as a "best-selling" author and painter! Life is good for millionaire crack-head grifters!

17 from last:

337 193 It is so sad to think that suburban TX residents now need generators."

My neighbor is younger and thinks he is all tech savvy. He had a generator, and he also had a new HVAC system with a "smart" thermostat. He hooked it all together, it was so smart that whenever the generator had run for 10 minutes, the "smart" thermostat turned it all off. He gave up and went to momma's house for the duration.

meanwhile, me with my dumb old space heaters that you light with a match stayed nice and warm throughout. So what if the room gets to be 90 degrees? I WANTED it to be 90 degrees! (I don't actually do that, but my wife sure does)

Don't get me started.......

Actually we went grocery shopping yesterday. Mrs. Mis. Hum. wore here Frito Bandito mask and I had mine on my neck. MI is draconian with their rules. However about 30% of the shoppers were either A) Not wearing masks or B) intentionally not wearing them properly.

91 Alright, I need to up my coffee game. For the moment, I'm keeping my freshly cleaned, inside and out, 20 year old regular coffee maker. The method of making coffee is off the table for today. No french presses, etc.

For now, I'm looking at just buying satisfactory coffee. I'm a high volume addict/drinker and I have survived on truck stop vending machine coffee in the past. The kind in the paper cup with a hand of cards on the side for you connoisseurs. Lately it's been whatever is on sale, generally medium roast. Maxwell House, Folgers, Store Brand, etc. I splurged on some Starbucks last week and it was complete garbage. It didn't even smell like coffee in the bag or while brewing. Didn't taste awful. Didn't taste like anything at all.

So, what brand(s) should I be looking to try. What do you guys like for say, 10ish bucks a bag. If I genuinely like it, I'll spend a bit more. Whatdoyagot?

The most important thing is whole bean, grind it right before brewing. Make sure the expiration date on the bag is as far in the future as you can get it.

A big hidden truth of the modern area - business licensing and "regulations" exist primarily so that large, powerful companies with a lot of politicians on their payroll can use government to drive all of their smaller competitors out of business and keep them there.

146 "that the line 'they are a private company- they can do whatever they

None of "Corporate America" is a private company. They are "publicly traded" and allegedly have a lot of mandates placed on them. But the SEC and other agencies are fully corrupted, and these globalist entities don't serve shareholders, the same way DC Cartel does not serve We the People. --
I'm not sure how to describe the corrupt corporate world ... imo a few oligarchs have most control, but BigTech also made dirty deals with NSA (and others) which funded and supports much of their research, and helps control us. The masses just keep pouring their savings into "the markets", which funds corrupt globalism, instead of putting the money back into their own communities. This is especially irritating for government workers that tax money out of their community, and send it off to the global conglomerates to invest in ... China, so they can go retire in Florida, or Costa Rica.

Look at the state licensing boards. OTs and PTs take a national test but each state has its own board for licensing. Just more cost to keep people from working (competing).

She does not tolerate annoying shit, prefers to stay home, is ruining the grade curve for everybody in her class, loves Japanese animation and is a good artist. Oh and she does not give a tinkers damn if we fuck up her hair as long as it is "close enough". Hubbymayhem and I are the only people worried about how the end result of this haircut looks.

Has anyone else ever tried those Asian instant coffees? They come in individual serving packages, usually like long rectangular pouches. Just add hot water and serve. I quite like them. They usually come with milk and sugar added, but there's one I got that also had *durian* added as well. I've never had real fresh durian, though I know all about how bad it smells, but this was quite a nice additional flavour.

My last ground beef purchase was at Aldi's at over five pounds. I carefully decide where 1/5th was. So that's about one pound. Cut that carefully in half, then once again in half. So you end up with very close to 1/4 pound sections. No weighing required.

A one pound hunk of ground beef for meat loaf takes too long to defrost. I'd rather defrost (4) 1/4# sections.

It's the anxiety that this regime wants you to feel. Chaotic mindsets go hand in hand with chaotic times. They don't want to give you a chance to sit down and think of ways to fight their edicts. They want you to to be mentally off-balance all the time.

Look at the very evil regimes of the Soviets, The Chicomms, Pol Pot, and Chaves. The poor were lead down paths that lead to bad times, poverty, and hunger. At those time then the educated, the city dweller, the Kulak (poor land owners) were blamed.
Notice how many times people gathering for work, for worship, or for family take the blame for the Covid Red Deaths.
And also note that the certain workers (healthcare) are praised for working through while others (teacher, government) are praised for NOT working.
Same goes for lockdowns are praised while Open states are lambasted.

You really do learn something new every day here. Whether it's something useful or even something you wanted to know is a different question.

I checked out Auction Ninja and then did some searching. It was totally not what I was expecting. Skaggs's Mandocaster was an actual Tele body and had eight strings so it must have been custom made. The one on auction looks rough but looks complete and apparently has good provenance. Probably not a bad buy for someone into that kind of stuff.

363 The family packs of ground beef I get are usually between 5-6 pounds. I divide into 4.
Actually since I'm stingy I'll usually cook one fourth right away and freeze the other three (so I save 1 ziplock lol)

I like to squish it flat in the ziplock too, and line them up in the little basket in the freezer. When I'm down to my last ziplock of ground beef I get anxious.

376 Solar and Wind cannot be relied n to get civilization to the time when we have new sources.
=========================
Wind is ridiculous. Even when functioning correctly, 70+% of the power gets lost at the source through step down transformers. (Notice: when you are driving past a wind farm, there are massive transformers at the base of those things.)
Maintenance on those is constant/expensive
Their full of haz. waste. Those things are going to be a bitch to dispose at end of life.
Chynah is already experiencing "wind shadow", that is, taking too much energy out of the atmosphere.
"They" will blame all of this on CO2, and we'll get MOAR! synthetic beef and wind turbines.

I was doing some genealogy research recently and came across something interesting about one particular troop ship. In the aftermath of WWII it transported refugees from war ruined eastern Europe to Australia. About 1,000 per trip for three plus years. The fourth year it brought refugees to the USA from those countries plus some who escaped Poland.

Including one two year old Polish girl and her parents. I dated that girl when she was in her teens and she never once mentioned her background.

Anyway, I imagine those refugees who ended up in Australia became some really proud liberty loving folks.

These images are from an internal whistleblower:

i looked at those images. one slide from the presentation says to be less white is to be:
be less certain, less arrogant, more open minded, more humble, listen, believe. all things you could say, being a good Christian.

The last line is the clincher though: break with white solidarity.
Would love to hear the definition of white solidarity. these race baiters have convinced the US was under apartheid and we are all being deprogrammed from slave owning south africans into humble less white drones.

Today is Moving Day. I get to move all my work and personal shit into the new industrial space I just leased this week. Feels good to finally be able to work comfortably, without tiptoeing around my brother's garage.

This is the THIRD time I've had to move either my workplace or myself in a year. But by far, this is the happiest move in a long time. My dad and one of my uncles came out yesterday to build shelving while I patched screw holes in the drywall to prep for painting in a few days. My brother, mom and her husband are all helping move boxes from storage today. Real family effort, and it feels good.

426 The 1964 Civil Rights Act prohibits discrimination against whites as well as blacks, jews as well as christians, and against different "creeds" and - even - get this - against republicans.

What America needs is a fucking Rainbow Coalition to put together, and start lynching these motherfuckers forthwith.

In a truly multi-racial, polyethnic, respect your pronouns sort of way, of course.

Rinse, Lather, Repeat.

427 Rich Lowry is the biggest waste of space in the history of Punditry. He's been editor of NR for 20 years, and I can't remember one memorable phrase or interesting position from him. He's the lamest of the lame. The tritest of the trite. the Dullest of the dull. The perfect liberal/left punching bag, made for Meet the Press roundtables.

White solidarity means disagreeing with the left about anything on anything.

By their definition I am a white supremacist and am down with white solidarity.

New definitions comrades.

437 I always remember that PBS "Cajun Cook" guy talking about making Jambalaya and how important it was to keep it covered for an hour while it simmered. If anyone tries to take the cover off you can cut off their hand.

440 It is curious that somewhere along the way, official and unofficial policy with respect to government and corporate policy morphed from "Equality" and "Treat Everyone Equally" to "Whitey Needs To Be Killed."

Was there an arbitrary cutoff date in time where this was immediately apparent to people paying attention? Because I must have missed that in my required "Diversity" training.

Is it a given that "Diversity" must necessarily by definition ever and always be exclusive of any White people?

Taken to its logical conclusion therefore, and it pains me to say this, America owes Bull Connor and all those guys a huge apology. Correct? They weren't wrong, then. Segregation was completely justified. That's what leftists are proving, then, whether that is their intent or not. Do they realize this?

443 I may regret this, but I'm going to try to smoke a pound and a half of salmon tomorrow. I've got the bagels and cream cheese, but no salmon... yet.

Supposed to be above freezing for the first time in two weeks.

Aldi has good fresh salmon. I've smoked big slabs several times. So good.

446 About masks: first time conversation waiting on line in store with a fellow anti masker. She was wearing a mask made of lace! What a great idea, since masks do not work, wear one made of lace. We both opined that everyone in CT has been brainwashed and mask compliance is over 95%. We parted telling each other "keep up the fight."
