Whoever Desires To Found An ONT And Give It Laws, Must Start With Assuming That All Men Are Bad And Ever Ready To Display Their Vicious Nature

Evening Horde! What's going on out there in gray box land, any news?

News Of The Dim


So, last weekend, I managed to dump my zero-turn mower into the lake. I was trying to cut too close to the edge of the retaining wall (which was stupid, that's a job for the trimmer) and my rear wheel started to slide over the edge, which pitched me and the tractor into the lake. I was fine, I was thrown clear, and the mower was only in the shallow part of the lake, but boy did I feel stupid. Funny thing is that since then everybody I meet has a friend/relative/acquaintance who did the same kind of thing and died. And they all wanted to tell me about it. Anyhow, I used some ramps and the truck to pull the mower out of the lake, but I was worried about what harm the water may have done to the engine and how to best get it going again. I needed someone who knows what they are doing's advice, so I called Alberta Oil Peon. AOP (after telling me about a friend of his' wife who broke her neck flipping a mower on a golf course) gave me a few simple instructions and I had the thing running again in about ten minutes. Once again the Horde proves they are the best. Thanks a bunch for your help AOP!


Whoa, Kid, Leave Some Girls For The Rest Of Us, Will Ya?


Now That You Mention It....

Something Missing

However, it seems a little odd now that there’s no videos of the survivors of the Afghan crisis arriving at airports.   No crowds or families greeting the extracted American residents; no human interest stories and local broadcasted news coverage of relieved Americans, husbands, wives, daughters or sons arriving back in their hometown…. Nothing.

Six to seven thousand Americans saved from the clutches of the Taliban, and not a single story of those Americans arriving home to the waiting arms of their loving family.

Ya know, he's got a point...


COVID News


Vaccine Regret

But here’s the thing: I don’t think my deliberative process is unique or even rare. Vaccine hesitancy isn’t ultimately a political thing, or an intelligence thing, or a race thing, whatever demographic differences may be emerging along those lines. In essence, the wait-and-see approach is a perfectly reasonable response to more than a year of gaslighting, misinformation, and despotism from official sources.

Lots of us raised our eyebrows at first, then thought about it, then were coming around. But if you’re anything like me, you have now been hounded into vaccine remorse by the same worthless midwits who made you skeptical in the first place. If they would just leave us alone, we’d probably drift in the direction of making the right decisions for ourselves and our families. But they won’t leave us alone, because their entire reason for being is to make absolutely everything spectacularly worse by handling it as arrogantly and as stupidly as possible. So here we are.


Candace Owens says private COVID testing center CANCELED her appointment after accusing her of 'politicizing' the virus and spreading misinformation


This brings us to tonight's discussion question. I know a lot of people on “our” side don't like Candace Owens. I'm not sure why. I mean, while I'm not a fan, I don't dislike her, mostly she's just political background noise, part of the chattering classes that I strive mightily to ignore, albeit one who is mostly on “our” side. The thing is that there are plenty of people who do listen to that kind of stuff, and it's important to have people like her and Charlie Kirk and Steven Crowder out there fighting against the unending deluge of leftist propaganda and lies. I even saw a conservative doctor saying that he wouldn't treat her either, because he doesn't like her. While I agree that each doc does and should have the right to decide who he or she takes on in their practice, is this really a road we want to go down? Political litmus tests for medical treatment? I mean, I know the left would love to go down that road, do we need to encourage it? As always, there's a Mencken quote that perfectly encapsulates the problem:

Scoundrels.jpg

Discuss.


Based App

Is That Progressive Idea Actually Racist? This High-Tech Tool Can Help You Find Out

Basically it's an app that you can add to your browser that will switch the races of any story you're looking at to better help you determine if an “anti-racist” article is actually just racist. Neat idea, although I don't think you really need an app for that, it blatantly obvious at this point.

Good News Everyone!


Millennials Will Get Sick and Die Faster Than the Previous Generation

It's Vice, don't give them the clicks, but the Farnsworth quote popped into my head when I saw the article. Basically the article cites a study which reports that the 30-39 cohort will have shorter lifespans due to stress, depression, suicide and substance abuse. Wait, you mean a generation that tends to be more entitled and narcissistic, one that's determined to kick away all the pillars of society, eschews traditional morality and faith and blindly worships big government has problems with depression and suicide? Color me shocked! Shocked I tell you, shocked!


What's For Dinner?


Video shows a pile of RAW MEAT on luggage conveyor belt as TSA issues warning not to ‘wing your travel packing’

Obviously it was in some kind of container, most likely a Styrofoam cooler, that got broken and separated from its contents while being unloaded from the plane, but how would you feel if the baggage carousel spat that out with your luggage?


Daily Dose Of VDH


American Armageddon: What started out as elite woke nonsense now warps everyone’s daily life.


VDH often points out that decline is a choice. Well, it's obvious that the choice has been made. Gozer the Gozerian has been reborn, and we're all just waiting for the Stay-Puft marshmallow man to enter stage right.

I think it's because she fails the "purity" test - you know, like everyone in the fucking conservative world does on one issue or another. I can't remember the first pause I had with her.

Hell, I had lots of "pauses" with Trump, and I still do (like the vaccine crap). But it's all good - she says a lot of the right things. Let not good be the enemy of perfection, or whatever.

103 That quotation from Mencken is great and exactly right.

Mencken also predicted antifa, though given that he was paying attention to contemporary events it probably didn’t take great foresight.

“ Social Justice… will take us, soon or late, into the stormy waters of Fascism. To be sure, that Fascism is not likely to be identical with the kinds on tap in Germany, Italy and Russia; indeed, it is very apt to come in under the name of anti-Fascism. And its first Duce… will not call himself a dictator, but a scotcher of dictators.”

Pretty much the Greeks lost to the Romans because the Greeks 1) Could not unite but stayed fiercely independent. 2) Were still locked into the use of the Phalanx. 3) Macedon decided to get involved (or tried to) in the second Punic War when Rome was on the ropes after Cannae. They did not make a dent there, but that is not something that the Romans would be disposed to forget. 4) Figured they could beat up on the Romans because their heads were filled with Alexander and all the great battles of the past.

Bad call, Ripley. It was a bad call.

Of course, the Romans were not going to probably let the Mediterranean go no matter what anyone did. Once Carthage was defeated in the second punic war, everyone was living on borrowed time.

Yaesu says send it to Cali for diagnostics, but I'm not fond of being without it for any length of time. I'm actually considering buying a 2nd one, if I can find one at a decent price, before sending this one in...

184 Given another option I would choose it, but assuming it is binary, the scales tip a bit on the side of the pizza because I have a soft spot in my heart for American cheese, which is just marvelous for some things.
Posted by: CharlieBrown'sDildo at September 02, 2021 09:23 PM (Q9lwr)

Is that Shapiro bait I see? The American cheese is not even the worst of it.

Besides, I wonder how spaghetti flavored with traditional slim jim spices would taste. My guess with the picture we are shown, it would be pretty bland as this shows the slim jims being prepared with the pasta and hence might be watered down a lot. Otherwise, it is not too different from cutting up hot dogs with macaroni and cheese or throwing in some sliced sausage. Hell, I prepare a lot of my pasta with beef bullion as it adds pretty much exactly the right amount of salt plus savory.

185 Last night at about 12:30 AM my smoke alarms went off. No fire, but scared the heck out of me. Then a few minutes later they do it again. OK, let's look for the one with the little red light. Found it, tried swapping out the battery, no go, but then they're all pulled from service elsewhere in the house.

So I end up having to drive to Circle-K in the middle of the night just to get a 9 Volt battery. And because it's a "convenience" store, it cost me 10 bucks. But the darn alarms shut up after that.

How long before your 59th birthday? I encountered the same scenario in 2018 with the new head of my department and a new supervisor he hired. I was laid off three weeks before my birthday after more than 20 years with the firm. A year before me, eight people of similar age and length of service were let go, so I was prepared when it happened to me. The new head had created a toxic mood in the department and I was ready to go. But not without a nice severance check. Also, I was in Minnesota so was able to collect 26 weeks of unemployment. My only regret is that I didn't get laid off during COVID so I could have gotten more weeks of COBRA and unemployment.

It's that she doesn't know any other chords to strike. Like, none; none at all. Remember the jokes about Gulianni? Noun, verb, and 9/11? Candace falls into that same trap.

Yep. It even occurs in higher ed where senior STEM faculty (who generally make good money) are somewhat "encouraged" to retire early. We had a huge swath of faculty retire in the past couple of years as part of the ongoing budget reductions. We'll be lucky if we can fill those positions again.

258 185 Last night at about 12:30 AM my smoke alarms went off. No fire, but scared the heck out of me. Then a few minutes later they do it again. OK, let's look for the one with the little red light. Found it, tried swapping out the battery, no go, but then they're all pulled from service elsewhere in the house.

So I end up having to drive to Circle-K in the middle of the night just to get a 9 Volt battery. And because it's a "convenience" store, it cost me 10 bucks. But the darn alarms shut up after that.

Mine starts doing a beep ever 2 - 3 minutes. Very annoying. But it does have a "silence" button that will stop that random beep for 12-24 hours so you can go get a new battery. On mine the "silence" is the same button as the "test" button you just press in on the silence part to stop it.

259 Re Candice Owens:

There is no "our side". There is only me and my family and God.

Now, you may see me fighting the good fight somewhere, and if the situation avails itself, you may help me defeat a foe and perhaps dispose of the body. And nothing will be said afterwards. No bond is formed or planned formulated for future endeavors. The understanding will be unspoken.

No different than if you see me broken down on the side of the road and stop to help change a tire. The alliances live in our hearts and our intrinsic understanding of what is "right" in the universal sense. And as long as our unspoken alliance lives inside us, we may lighten each other's burdens and bury our foes in shallow, unmarked graves as fodder for coyotes. If we do not organize, we may in fact triumph.

I richly deserved whatever happened to me, but there are more than a few older (60+) people I know (Her Majesty included) who had excellent reputations and made major contributions who wanted to continue working and either got whacked or were "encouraged" to retire.

I was talking to my sister yesterday about a large regional financial institution in the area. They wanted to reduce staff size by 15% so they offered early retirement to employees. For some bizarre reason, they didn't set a first-come, first-serve limit and now they are dealing with the fact that 41% of the employees took the offer! Perhaps not so surprisingly, the 60-63-year olds were the least likely to take the offer because they want to work until they qualify for SS and Medicare!

Perfect example of "the dog that didn't bark".

Unless maybe none of them are actually Americans, as Americans understand Americans.

He started to say something about the second wave, and I cut him short and said "I understand. But I don't pry into my employee's health decisions. I can send you a bartender, but I don't know if they are vaccinated or not. I don't do that. Do you want a bartender?"

This is, or used to be, at least, a sort of elephant-in-the-room topic in medicine. Control groups using placebos are necessary partly because they sometimes work. Some sort of interaction between patient expectations and the immune system can increase or decrease the quality of the outcome.

The numbers aren’t huge, but the implications for “bedside manner” are. Do you, as a doctor, provide the worst-case scenarios honestly? Or do you downplay them in favor of the best-case scenarios in the hope of increasing the chances of getting them?

The media doesn't "interview" anyone, at least in the sense that they randomly select people.

The media vets people. If a repatriated American is willing to praise Biden effusively, they will be coached and then "interviewed". If not, they don't make television. If no one is willing to give praise, then they hire an actor to give a fake interview praising Biden. Then we read about it 10 days later after 4chan proves they weren't even in Afghanistan. But by then, everybody has watched a dozen television interviews and read 3 NYT articles.

And only on the conservative side ever learn that the individual was a fraud.

"Here's free shite" or "Here's a workplace/social advantage" sells to a certain percentage of our population. Hell, a large percentage. It doesn't matter who the spokesperson is or what they look like, a person saying "Free shite is bad" to someone who votes for "Here's free shite" will not work.

It's a little more complicated than that, but yeah, Australia has lost the plot.

UK lockdown rules at their peak last year was just as crazy by American standards. Something like one hour outside your home within one or two miles per day; only for masked exercise or grocery store trips.

Australia is basically trying to make those same rules stick for months and years on end despite vaccinations.

Save emails in draft, and share the free email account password. Type your response and save in draft. But this is the important part: DON'T send the email. Makes it much more difficult to track your comms, not impossible, but make the jackbooted thugs work for it.

If you absolutely HAVE to send emails, use digital microdots. Send an innocuous Word or pdf document, but take your real communications and save it as a jpeg or similar image. Then reduce the size down as small as you can get it, and embed in a known area of the document. The recipient clicks the tiny image and blows it back up to readable size. This also makes it difficult to use text recognition to scan for badthought words. Again, not impossible to find, but they'll have to really work for it.

You can sharpen an axe with a vice and a file.

505 can't help you with Inslee, funsize.

use a file on the axe, though. A grinder is too easy to take to much off and heat it enough to ruin the case-hardening.

Clamp it in a vice to be sure to get the angle right, and go from a fairly coarse to a fine file, and don't file hard with the coarse one.

Why do we automatically accept the result of the recount? Shouldn't another recount be done after that to confirm the result?

527 I think I've probably at least mentioned it tangentially before, but there's something important that we should be clobbering socialists over the head with every time we find them. The system is broken as designed, fatally flawed before it ever proceeds to attempt implementation.

All socialist ideology revolves around the idea of material equality - or what they're calling equity now. Equal pay for equal work, and soforth. It sounds good on paper, right?

The problem is that people don't even things out on their own, so you have to give someone the power to make things equal, by force. You now have a government that's empowered to confiscate and redistribute. A small group controls all of the wealth.

Quick, define aristocracy - you just used the preceding sentence, didn't you?

In seeking equality, it creates an aristocracy. This is as contradictory and self-defeating as a thing can be. As Chesterton said, there has never been an aristocracy that didn't behave exactly like a small gang. There's no rational reason to expect this one to act any differently. History tells us they will feather their nests, punish detractors, and try to make themselves permanent.

I thought the entire premise of Gatorade was to maintain your sodium/potassium balance by replenishing those salts in the ratio that you sweated them out.

572 Regarding Candace Owens, the concept of not liking a particular person "on your side" no matter how much they fight first presented itself to me back during the "Draw the Prophet" event in Texas that Pamela Geller was involved with, where the place it was held was attacked.

I have been to a couple of events where Geller spoke. She has that annoying, nasal, Fran Drescher "Nanny" accent, and is not a particularly inspiring public speaker. So I am definitely not a fan.

After the attack on the event, critics, including Bill O'Reilly, criticized her with statements along the lines of, "I believe in Free Speech, but she is being offensive."

I said at the time that was wrong. That statement means the speaker does not actually believe in Free Speech if they are going to exclude people being offensive, or even just being less than pleasant people in general. The proper phrasing should be, "She is offensive, but I believe in Free Speech." Added to which, as was often said about Trump, "But she fights."

Oh, and as it goes, Trump also criticized Geller for being offensive. Never mind medical treatment, going down that road ends up working passage aboard the Grift Ship Bulwark.

My sympathies WDS. I had a similar situation. Long story short, my supervisor for 30 yrs retired. His assistant, who rose from being a payroll clerk, was made #2 in the park dist and my boss.

She didn't like me because I fought her on some stupid ideas. While on disability leave, that was forced on me, they eliminated my job. I'm not the type to sue but I think I have a case.

After 32 yrs I got a certified letter eliminating my position. No personal contact, gutless azzholes. They actually said because of my long absence this was a good time to eliminate my job. I think that sounds like true discrimination. That new bitch supervisor wanted me gone and used my disability to get it done.

618 I almost got blanket-partied in basic for having a soda during dinner in week 5. I was seriously pissed the fvck off and would've beaten the shit out of someone because *I* was paying attention when the drill sergeant said we could have sodas after week 4. If I get BP'd because *I* fvcked up, that's one thing, but because *you* fvcked up, you're getting it back in spades.

Then there was the idiot who was jealous because I brought a pair of boots with me to basic -- my reserve unit had issued me a full uniform (DEP) so I kept those boots highly polished and never worn. They were my inspection boots. Idiot *reported* me to the drill sergeant. For thinking ahead? I was not violating any regulation, rule, tradition, or custom; in fact, SFC Torres thought it was a good thing to do. I was gobsmacked at the idiot's pettiness and it was fun to hear him do pushups for it.

622 i was going to get a BO my last night at Benning, just because i was different from all the 18 y/o idiots, and i was from #Failifornia. being on a "dead man walking" profile didn't help. what save me is that, when we started AIT, we got an AD NCO who was re-classing from Supply to Infantry. black dude, from South Central. we got along, for a variety of reasons, and, unlike the children i knew he was a no shit NCO, just going to school. the idiots said "no he's a trainee, just like us..."

told him what one of the plotters had gleefully told me, and he called a formation. told them that, if i didn't sleep peacefully through the night, there would be NO graduation for anyone until the MPs got done with the investigation, and that if they didn't think the CoC wouldn't listen to another AD NCO, they should think again.

There's something that hit me today about natural immunity vs vaccine at the global level that I didn't appreciate. Just went right past me until I read something Robert Malone said that phrased in just the right way to make realize, hey, that's something important I've been missing. Some of the others I read like Vanden Bossche have mentioned it but I didn't understand the significance.

The virus mutates. Well, guess what, natural immunity mutates along with it so to speak. Dude A, say in California get the Coof. He develops a broad spectrum immune response to that particular virus. Virus gets in Texas, and has mutated somewhat. Guy in Texas gets in, and he develops immunity. But his immunity is a little different, because it's based on the mutated version.

And so on and so forth around the world. There is a lot of "diversity" in the immune profile at the population level to match the mutations as they occur. [cont]

642
If we compare the natural immune profiles of the guy in CA vs TX vs SC vs France vs Timbuktu, we see they will overlap, but they will be a little different. Think of a Venn diagram. The guy in Timbuktu recognizes slightly different antigens than the guy in CA.

So the collective population immune profile is much broader than any individual. If somehow the virus managed to mutate enough that it got away from the guy in CA, the guy in Timbuktu might still have enough to still beat it.

That's how population level natural immunity works. That how the species immune system adapts to viral mutations and stay apace with viral mutation. Cleve shit, ain't it? [cont]

Now, take a fucking leaky vaccine that targets one simple epitope. Vaccinate the entire fucking population with it, as much as you can.

You have now *synchronized* the entire world population with a single, narrow immune response. The virus just has to make a little mutational side step, and it gets away from everybody. And because of OAS effects, that globally homogenous immune profile has some inertia.

Stupid, ain't it? This is what happens when you fuck around with shit you don't understand.

And yep, it was Robert Malone's particular phrasing that made me see the point. I'd seen several make it, using their own language but I didn't see it until Malone said it just right. Oh, oh, oh! Yeah!

"epitope" is the vaunted spike protein target that the 'vax' covers?


Do the mRNA treatments (not going to call them vaxs because they are not) have broader defense against the virus versus natural antibodies?

Posted by: weft cut-loop at September 03, 2021 01:57 AM (1t5dY)

646
That same variation in individual immune response happens over time in the same local area as well. Say Bob in Podunk, AZ catches it, but his neighbor Alice doesn't. But a few months later, in another wave, Alice catches it. Well, the virus has mutated some. So even the local population in Podunk has variation in immune response.

This folks is how the homo sapiens collective immune system manages to get us to herd immunity without putting too much selection pressure on the virus to evade that immunity. Well, a part of the way it does it. It's beautiful.

It's nothing but natural selection at work, going both ways. "Life, it will find a way".

And out smartest men in the room can fuck that up so damn easily because they don't know what they're doing.

647 >> Do the mRNA treatments (not going to call them vaxs because they are not) have broader defense against the virus versus natural antibodies?

Lord no! The mRNA (as well as the other adenovirus vector) does nothing but give you some antibodies against a *single* epitope of the virus. One single piece.

The virus simply has to mutate, thanks to leaky vaccine pressure, that single epitope, and Boom! it has evaded the entire immune response of the vaccinated population.

Yes, "epitope" is the term for the part of the antigen that an antibody binds to. The part of the antibody that binds to the epitope is dubbed a "paratope".

So antibody paratopes bind to antigen epitopes.

I was reading an article that says, Israel is one ofthe most vaccinated countries on the planet. It is only the slight remaining fraction of the unvaccinated that has caused this latest spike in cases!

Fools. Sweden's public health officials know the truth, although they're probably to scared to really say it. Israel's vaccinated population are the "superspreaders" of vaccine-resistant selected mutants that they don't want coming in their country.

Sweden's public health officials did the right thing against tremendous pressure all along this pandemic. They know the truth.

Now, consider ADE. Suppose our virus, due to the selection pressure of the globally synchronized leaky vaccines gets to full evasion, and in the process makes those single epitope antibodies become *enhancing* rather than neutralizing. The vaccinated population is now fucked up the ass.

Now, ADE can occur with natural immunity. Nothing is perfect, and even our own immune systems can fuck up (but at much less a rate than our Top. Men).

Dengue fever is an example.

But guess what, that natural immune diversity means that any such ADE effects will only effect a smaller subset of the population, not the whole. So, maybe poor Bob in Timbuktu gets natural ADE, but Pierre in Paris and Billy Bob in Texas doesn't because of the variation in their own immune response. What's enhancing for Bob, is till neutralizing for Pierre.

Lucky Pierre.

And before I sack out, one more thing about ADE vaccine fuckups. There was a recent one in the Philippines. Dengue Fever vaccine. They came up a new Dengue fever vaccine. Bunch of scientists pushed it, and the Philippines approved it for all their young 'uns.

It ended up killing 130 chillins due to ADE. Big scandal, and now 20 of the vax pushing scientists have been criminally charged with the equivalent of negligent homicide over that vaccine.

Look up that Philippine Dengue fever vax fiasco. That's an example of what can happen when you rush things, and big Pharma buck get involved in pushing something. Hit the idiot Bluechecks over the head with that.

Now, fallout of that incident in the Philippines has been, understandably, that parents are getting afraid of vaccines. All vaccines. So, the real safe and effective, time tested vaccines are being rejected because of the fuck up.

Vanden Bossche has warned that if this Covid vaccine thing goes as bad as it possibly could, worse case scenario, the word "vaccine" will become so feared and hated that anyone suggesting using a "vaccine" (no matter which) will be burned at the stake.

He suggests we'll need to change the language. He suggest "immunological sterilizing agent" as a replacement until something better is thought up.
