26 Morning again, folk,

All fed and shaved, aired up the car's tires to 35 psi (it got cool here this morning and their pressure dropped to 32), fed Chekov the Ailing Codger Cat, and applied his topical medicine. I'm off to the barber this am, plus the suburban library now that the stupid face diaper thing is over (I hope they aren't worrying about that, anyway). And I have to pick up some more Rx food for the furry little invalid. Later we may go out for a burger to a grill near where we live.

My plan, if they hadn't approved mine, was to take as much vacation and sick days as I could and do the passive "Why should I worry?" routine as much as possible. Not to mention seeing a lawyer, applying for unemployment, and taking my pension and starting up SS.

Yes, it would mean a cut in income. But in some ways I am sorry they didn't turn the thing down. I no longer care about working there.

49 "Montana has stopped making licence plates due to aluminum shortage. Some other states too although I don't have a list."

PA sopped issuing registration stickers to go on the plates, to show that your registration is current.

MD law says that all vehicles operated on MD public roads MUST display a current and valid registration sticker.

So with a whole shit-pot full of folk driving south on I-83 daily from their homes in PA to their jobs in MD, I asked the local legislators in MD how they were gonna square that circle.

They didn't understand the question.

58 btw, the Supreme Court just accepted a fascinating case that has great potential. Not a culture war case, which they hate, but a technical case of they kind they all love to dig into, which is why I think there are good odds they'll go to town on it.

The case they accepted challenges the EPA's right to use the original Clean Air Act to go far beyond anything ever stated in that act, and to do whatever they want. The Left believes that once an agency has been given some power, they have ALL power from then on to do whatever they feel like (unless a Republican is President) If the SCOTUS rules against, this would go a long ways towards fixing the systemic problems caused by the "Chevron" ruling 4 decades ago.

You're welcome. Not only handling issues but also fuel mileage improve with properly aired tires. I run mine about 2 psi over the door placard recommendation, 3 if I'm about to drive on the highway for an extended time. A big car with a 300-hp V-6 like my Buick needs all the help it can get.

I saw 32 mpg regularly on the open Interstate going to and from Birmingham in Sept. And that was at 70-75 mph with the A/C on, 1 human passenger, 2 feline passengers, and luggage.

84 License plates...

Here in Kentucky the new ones look as if they're plastic. They are not stamped with raised letters and numbers that are painted. They're flat. With the numbers and letter painted on. I should find one in a parking lot and examine it. Should be pretty easy to forge... if for some reason I needed to forge one. Just sayin'.

At first we had the little stickers that went on the plate and the "solution" to the peel-and-steal problem was to make them out of easily torn plastic with strong adhesive. But nobody ever peeled the old one off and once you got three or four layered on there, they became stealable again.

TX had to be one of the first states to do that, and all because people didn't want to buy auto insurance and found stealing the plate tags easier. (Later, when in AK, I was stopped by an evil Anchorage cop for 38 in a 35. In the midst of his constant yelling and screaming at me, he demanded to know why I "didn't feel like putting my registration tag on my license plate". On Elmendorf I got a ticket for no registration, which took a visit to Security Forces to have dismissed.)

And the Left thinks it is a racist op from the "Right Wing Media" to scare people about the wonderful Afghan people who just came here to make their lives better.

I mean, the idea that this is straight info is too outlandish. The Left has never been told about the unvetted nature of the Afghan "refugees" brought here and just released into the country.

163 From the how to talk about vax:

But vaccination numbers in the US have waned since their winter peak and, amid the spread of the super contagious Delta variant, many Americans remain hesitant to get vaccinated.

About 50 labs in the US have the technology to test for the variant yet no one single lab has applied for a CMS number to get reimbursed.

Posted by: Tinfoilbaby at October 30, 2021 08:24 AM (zdpQZ)

I think nitrogen has been impacted by both the cost and the supply line disruptions. Haven't seen the green cap for a long time!


I won't do nitrogen because you never know if you are being followed and shot at by bad guys, end up flying off the road into deep water and need to survive underwater by breathing from the air conveniently stored in the tires.

"As cases, hospitalizations and deaths associated with COVID-19 trend downward across the country, Maine and some other New England states are still seeing high and sustained levels of all three...

Overall, Maine has administered 915,325 final doses of vaccine, which accounts for 68.1 percent of all residents and 77.3 percent of those 12 and older who are eligible, according to Maine CDC data. Maine ranks fourth overall in vaccination rate. The top five states are all in New England."

184 I replaced the wheels and tires on my truck two years ago with aftermarket stuff... for looks mostly. The new set had to have the TPMS sensors "triggered" with a tool so they'd work with the truck's monitoring system. The tool was fairly cheap, maybe $20 or so and the process was simple.

I did learn that the individual sensors in the wheel/tires are calibrated by the air PSI in your tires at the time they are activated and thus will read that as their baseline... whatever it might be. Therefore your TPMS display might have a different PSI than a gauge used to check the tire pressure. This is a bit frustrating for us OCD types.

Posted by: screaming in digital (Jesse's Girl) at October 30, 2021 08:55 AM

Thank you for this, Jesse's Girl. Currently, my employer has not said a word about a "vaccine" mandate, but the more I keep reading here and elsewhere people sharing things like "well, my employer just sent out a memo implementing a vaccine mandate and we have until...", the more I am dreading receiving that from my own employer eventually.

Knowing all I know about the "vaccines" and the WEF Great Reset and the evil purpose behind these mandates, I am not agreeing to get a "vaccine". Thankfully, I am alone with no dependents, so I can make that decision knowing I will be the only one who suffers if I get fired. But I will definitely need to know where I can turn for new employment. This article helps, thank you again.

More logical to think that decades of studies showed masks don't prevent spread of virus or disease, but do promote spread of bacteria.

The Taliban goal is to gain access to Pakistan's nuclear weapons, an existential threat to New Delhi. The Pakistani Intelligence apparatus, the ISI, is said to be split between two factions, one supporting the current political structure and one supporting the Taliban destabilization effort.

320 Fully jabbed me somehow caught a case of the Wuhan Flu, even though I was assured my "vaccination" shot would prevent it. I have had persistent bronchitis for nearly three weeks, and a mild fever a few times. That's it.

**

I still haven't heard an explanation of how we're going to achieve herd immunity via the shots when, from the pro-virus sites I've read, vaccinated people still have a 25% chance of catching the COVIDs, pretty much the same as unvaccinated folks.

I am also still unclear on whether you have developed any level of natural immunity now, or if the injection prevented your body's natural defenses from learning anything from the encounter.

Yep, and the same people who worship Dr. Fauci, even though he is on record in March of 2020 on CBS News stating explicitly that masks do not provide the protection people think and no one other than the medical industry should be walking around in them. And then turned around a month later and said he agreed with mask mandates. And then months later recommended double-masking. Etc etc etc.

This whole Plandemic has showed me that the majority of people in this country are ignorant, gullible idiots who will believe anything people tell them. I'm sure that is the lesson that those in the WEF and Great Reset planning have learned from this as well.

Basically, the culture. Chinese peasants in a lot of cases literally live with the pigs and livestock like chickens. So, colds and influenza get passed back a forth between humans and other species.

Also, severe lack of public hygiene again with the huge peasant population and feeding offal to their animals as well.

So, all together it's a grand laboratory for new flu generation.

Let's not forget these are also people who think that masks on people on the sidelines as collegiate and professional sports games magically protect people. Even after the cameras show coaches pulling the mask down to scream at their players and officials, then pulling them back up, constantly all game. Players on the sidelines wearing masks on their chin, then pulling up over their mouth, but not nose, then pulling down to cheer their teammates and slapping high fives with hands which have been touching those masks all game.

It's ridiculous theater. Except when it becomes dangerous when asshole flight attendants force babies to wear masks on planes or asshole teachers tape masks to kids faces in school. Everyone should have called out this mask bullshit from the beginning.

368 Apropos of nothing -

Lately, as I drive around, I've been listening to George Harrison's "All Things Must Pass" as I haven't heard the whole thing in, oh, I don't know a decade or two.

What struck me is that though the songs are good, pretty much none of them would be appropriate for a Beatles album. Maybe "I Dig Love" but that's about it.

Harrison's stuff is almost all vaguely depressive or spiritually oriented. Not really the pop rock Beatles thing at all, except for the songs which actually made it onto the Beatles' albums. I think John and Paul were right in their assessments.

I've also been listening to the new "Let It Be" release and it now seems to me that "Let It Be" is the ever competitive McCartney's tutorial showing Harrison, "Now, this is how you make a spiritually oriented pop rock song."

Yet with mitigation measures, the organizations that run college football thought they could play safely, even in parts of the country with high transmission rates, and before vaccines were available. And this latest study suggests they were right.

Gee, so we could go back to normal without "vaccines". Imagine that. Yet, *this* season, all sports leagues mandated "vaccines" for their players or they can't play. Because "the science".

What pisses me off is the majority of professional athletes have fuck-you money. They could have easily all banded together and protested the "vaccine" mandate. But instead all you have so far is Cole Beasley in NFL and Kyrie Irving in NBA who have stood up to this.

How a nebuliser can give coronavirus millions more droplets to 'hitch a ride on'
By national medical reporter Sophie Scott and the Specialist Reporting Team's Emily Clark
Posted Wed 10 Feb 2021

A guest in Melbourne's hotel quarantine system was positive with COVID-19 when they used a nebuliser, believe experts, who say every second they used the machine they would have been releasing up to 10,000 times more aerosol particles than if they were breathing normally. And that would have given SARS CoV2 - the virus that causes COVID-19 - millions more droplets to "hitch a ride" on.

According to senior lecturer in mechanical and aerospace engineering at Monash University Daniel Duke, a nebuliser does not make the virus more potent, travel further or hang around in the air longer.

"There is simply more opportunity for the virus to be transmitted by aerosol," he said.

Meanwhile, they are simply ignoring the odd increase in all-cause non-Covid mortality that many countries are now seeing. Where this journey ends I do not know.

But I know this: we invented about the most complex product imaginable, tested it in a relative handful of people for a few months, a far shorter timetable than is typical for drug development. Now we are shoving it on every human we can reach - to prevent (or more accurately fail to prevent) an illness that is not particularly dangerous to most of them.

430 ...inclusion of Critical Race Theory in required training for West Point cadets and the Commander in Chief referencing the use of nuclear armaments and F-15 jets against US citizens, we have suspended these discounts.

The email should read "Yes we offer military discounts, just not to woke flag officers."

It's not the soldiers' fault that 0-5 and above go to shit.

Yep, I was not endorsing the statements in the article. Only sharing what I found. My personal opinion is that Australia is run by a bunch of radical totalitarians who are using every justification they can find to control every aspect of Australians' lives that they can.

Similar to how Wretched Whitmer pulled some "German study" about mask-wearing out of her ass to justify extending her mask-wearing mandate last year. None of this shit is based on actual science. Totalitarians want to control people, and then they shop around for some "scientist" who will give them a "study" to justify their tyranny.

434 I have never felt more trapped behind enemy lines than last night.

I went to a lawyer's rubber-chicken dinner to support the candidacy of various judges: one of whom is a personal friend a great guy, and a couple other good judges. This happened to be sponsored by the county Democratic party (NYC adjacent county).

From the Emcee on, it was a "Row A All The Way!" pep rally for Democrats, progressivisim and identity politics.
The Emcee in particular (a former Appellate judge) fairly dripped with venom for "Traaahhhmp!" and his obviously ignorant knuckle-dragging racists.

There are also several "initiatives" on the ballot that basically amount to HR1 on the State level (counting illegals for voting districts, enshrining universal mail in, same day registration/voting etc) that would go a long way to making us the Shithole State in perpetuity. Our State Senate majority leader led the audience to enforced call-and-response of "When Democrats Vote? Democrats Win!!"

I still have the Upstate compound and I love my beloved Upstate. But this part of the State has never felt more radical, intolerant and on-the-move.

Seig fricking heil.

435 PA sopped issuing registration stickers to go on the plates, to show that your registration is current.

MD law says that all vehicles operated on MD public roads MUST display a current and valid registration sticker.

So with a whole shit-pot full of folk driving south on I-83 daily from their homes in PA to their jobs in MD, I asked the local legislators in MD how they were gonna square that circle.

They didn't understand the question.

Alberta has also stopped issuing stickers. They have become redundant. Most cop cars have computer terminals in them, now, and a cop can "run" your plate with a few keystrokes, and know right away if the plate is current, and on the vehicle for which it was issued.

438 Coda to 434:
Our State GOP party keeps sending emails about our eevil Democrat Governer (who will probably lose a primary to the radical Historic First Moron Attorney General Tish James) and only TODAY sent its first, weak message against the ballot initiatives that will essentially allow urban civil servants to "count" our votes as much and as creatively as they wish in perpetuity.

Useless, feckless cucks all of them.

442 I voted early and voted no on all the ballot initiatives. There were no republican candidates for two judgeships so I wrote in Donald Trump. He will be my default for any office for which the Repubs are too chickenshit to offer a candidate.

446 The GoPe and MSM all know the National Man boy Lincoln Ass wasn't behind it-cause lol, they fooled those top Dem activists. They just want some cover for McAwefull blowing it so bad, and the Man boy Lincoln group is hoping for VA to be a safe staff for them to share their love in return for doing a solid here.
Posted by: Bete at October 30, 2021 08:55 AM (Ojki1)


I do wonder if the whole "Op" wasn't planned and carried out by a small group within the VA Dem campaign staff that should have had far more supervision and less access to campaign funds - a la G. Gordon Liddy with far less wits, grit and smarts.
