The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

The great myth of central planning is that capital can be rationally allocated through the elimination of profit and incentive. And that will just magically produce the right outcomes for society. Tom Luongo


Quote II

"In truth, I never lied. My guilty plea has rankled me throughout this process, and while I allowed myself to succumb to the threats from the government to save my family, I believe I was grossly misled about what really happened."Michael Flynn


Quote III


In case you were unaware—or, more likely, you were so keenly aware that you decided it was wise to keep your mouth shut decades ago, which is why you still have a job and aren’t homeless or in federal prison—we’re currently trapped in a culture that is so suffocatingly hostile toward dissenting opinions that it makes Pol Pot look like a free-speech absolutist.Taki's Magazine


Quote IV

“Whoever calls the prime minister of Israel a ‘racist’ is either a liar, an ignorant fool, or both. We don’t want Sanders at AIPAC. We don’t want him in Israel.”Danny Danon,Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations


Quote V

“As a biology major, I’ve studied how critical a healthy ocean is in fighting climate change, in carbon capture, biodiversity and as an ecosystem,” “It’s important, as students, that we take what we learn and use it, and I can do that starting here on this campus, helping reduce our plastic addiction.” UCLA junior, Sithara Menon

FACT: We Are Too Late to Stop the Hell Climate Change Will Unleash

We can expect mass migrations, death and destruction as a result, with many parts of the world becoming uninhabitable.

Good grief.

President Trump says subtly, Screw the cancel culture.

The owners of a Mexican restaurant in Tucson, Arizona, who were criticized for attending a Trump rally, got a five-star review from the sitting president himself.

After Betty Rivas was spotted in the audience at President Trump's Feb. 19 rally in Phoenix, negative reviews began hitting the Facebook page for Sammy's Mexican Grill.

That hurt business for several days, co-owner Jorge Rivas told "FOX & Friends" Sunday, but he said Saturday was a "very good day" for sales.

"The food is GREAT at Sammy's Mexican Grill in Phoenix, Arizona," Trump tweeted. "Congratulations to Betty & Jorge Rivas on doing such a wonderful job. I will try hard to stop by the next time I am in Phoenix. Support Sammy's!"

The left has been going after guns for generations. It looks like the next target is private property.

Communism 101: Democrats in Ohio, California and Oregon Push Laws Demanding That Private Property Owners Allow Homeless to Camp on Their Land

A very disturbing video was posted on Twitter this weekend.
A homeowner in Los Angeles claims the local government is preventing him from removing a homeless encampment from his property.

How infuriating, just another match?

Dollar General vs. High end retail.

The New York Times ran a map today of "Election results in places near Whole Foods, Lululemon, Urban Outfitters and Apple." The advice of the Times was "To Beat Trump, Democrats May Need to Break Out of the ‘Whole Foods’ Bubble."

They need to go to Dollar General.

There are 15,000 Dollar Generals in 44 states -- triple the number of Walmarts.

There are only 14,000 McDonald's in the USA.

The Times reported, "Last summer, Senator Elizabeth Warren electrified huge crowds at rallies in Seattle, Austin and New York. The events had one thing in common besides her populist pitch for 'big structural change.' At each stop, her trademark selfie lines were less than a mile from a Whole Foods Market, a Lululemon Athletica and an Urban Outfitters.

"These high-end retailers and brands, popular with urban millennials and affluent suburbanites alike, are increasingly correlated with which neighborhoods are trending blue. The drawback for Democrats? Just 34% of U.S. voters — and only 29% of battleground state voters — live within five miles of at least one such upmarket retailer, and the Democrats’ brand is stagnant or in decline everywhere else."

Troll Level? Pretty darn good!


Woman Trolls Man Who Sent Unsolicited Pic By Pretending It Got Sent To The Cops

It’s 2020 and we have not solved the scourge of the unsolicited dick pic. To be honest, I’m not hopeful for the future. The ocean levels will be rising up around our ears and bros will still swim through the water to flash some poor girl trying to clamber on board a plastic trash island. If anything, it’s getting easier and easier to send dick pics without permission on every new app and social media platform. But the advent of technology does have a silver lining—no one knows what’s possible anymore, and creeps are often gullible.

Twitter user @KatyMontgomerie shared screenshots they “stole from Facebook” of how one woman dealt with getting an unsolicited dick pic, and it might be one of the more delightful responses to the phenomenon I’ve seen in awhile.

A biochemist reviews the Trump administration response to the Coronavirus. Once again we see "The Press" is the enemy of the American people.

Fourth Point: Tune out the mainstream media.The press wishes to induce economic turmoil to harm Trump’s re-election and to make the coronavirus into his Katrina.

The media’s fear-mongering has the real effect of jeopardizing the welfare of millions of Americans, like my mother, who rely on their investments to pay for food, medicine, warmth, and other essentials.

Until the press decides that it wants to help the country instead of destroy Trump, it needs to be quarantined.

The #FakeNews hoaxes regarding Russia and Ukraine have been merely annoying. However, the Democrat/elite media hoax regarding the coronavirus is outright destructive.

Will CBD and I be reinstated at Twitter? Don't hold your breath.

A major Republican donor has purchased a stake in Twitter and is reportedly seeking to oust its chief executive, Jack Dorsey.

Bloomberg News first reported that Elliott Management has taken a “sizable stake” and “and plans to push for changes at the social media company, including replacing Dorsey”.

Paul Singer, the billionaire founder of Elliott Management, is a Republican mega-donor who opposed Donald Trump during the real-estate magnate’s run for the presidential nomination but has since come onside.

It looks like the UK's Boris Johnson told London's mayor Sadiq Khan, LOLGF.

City Hall sources have said it was "strange" that London Mayor Sadiq Khan was not invited to a meeting of the government's emergency Cobra committee to discuss the coronavirus outbreak.

The meeting in Whitehall brought together senior ministers and health officials and was designed to signal a step-change in the government’s response to the outbreak, agreeing an action plan to counter the spread of the disease.

It was the first in a series of weekly Cobra meetings attended by prime minister Boris Johnson, who has faced criticism for failing to take personal control of the UK’s response.

Leave it to our government. Another WTF moment in the 'Climate Change' crisis. Who needs thermometers?

Over the past 30 years, NOAA has been rapidly losing US thermometers. In 1989, 1,205 stations reported some daily temperatures, but last year only 871 stations reported some daily temperatures.

Thirty-five percent (424) of the stations in 2019 were zombie stations, meaning that NOAA estimated data for all twelve months. This is done even for some of the thermometers which reported at least a little data in 2019.

Elon Musk, crack pot or visionary?

Tesla CEO Elon Musk suggested that Lockheed Martin's F-35 Lightning II, the costly stealth jet considered to be pinnacle of US military aviation, "would have no chance" if pitted against a drone that is remotely piloted by a human.

At the US Air Force's Air Warfare Symposium in Florida, Musk said there should be a competitor to the F-35 program, according to a tweet by Lee Hudson, the Pentagon editor at Aviation Week.

Musk responded in his own tweet, saying that the "competitor should be a drone fighter plane that's remote controlled by a human, but with its maneuvers augmented by autonomy."

Young adults will be young adults and do young adult things. Oh no, a Coronavirus themed party was held off campus yet a public university is pissy.

A video that — and I apologize, but there’s no better way to put this — went viral has led the State University of New York at Albany, a public university, to issue a statement condemning students’ “coronavirus”-themed party and pledging to investigate any “misconduct.”

The video, which has since been removed from the @BarstoolAlbany Instagram page, reportedly showed “a bucket filled with ice and bottled Corona beer and a student wearing a surgical mask over his face,” along with the caption: “Corona virus isn’t gonna stop anyone from partying.” The video also reportedly showed a white sheet with a biohazard symbol and “two faces,” one with an X over each eye and the other a “frown, with what looks like straight lines for eyes.”

Well, just f*cking duh. Never thought this could happen. Genius Award Winner.

A 25-year-old woman from Poland has been left completely blind in her right eye and with eyesight complications in the left one after having her eyeballs dyed black by a tattoo artist in order to make herself stand out.

Aleksandra Sadowska’s tragic story began four years ago, when the young girl from Wroclaw, in western Poland, decided to get her eyeballs dyed black. She searched online for someone who could do the procedure, and found a willing tattoo artist from Warsaw. Although the tattoo artist, referred to by Polish press as Piotr A., appeared to know what he was doing, he allegedly didn’t know his craft very well, which led to a botched dying procedure. Aleksandra started complaining of severe pain in her eyes shortly after the procedure, but the tattoo artist allegedly told her that it was normal and recommended that she use painkillers to cope. Unfortunately, her situation was much more serious…

My humanitarian give-a-shit meter is broken with this one.

First he was their patient. Then they were Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

When an 88-year-old man was sent to the hospital with a broken hip, the firefighters who responded to the emergency call returned to his house to finish his yard work.

Howard Storelee from Rochester, Washington has been diligently keeping his yard and property tidy since his wife passed away five years ago.

When the hardy senior was mowing his lawn last week, however, he fell and broke his hip. Since he also injured himself in a more isolated part of his yard, no one could see him on the ground.

One thing I quibble with:

-right now, we merely have a ton of social pressure and threats of violence on dissenting opinion.

That said, I stand in awe of the daughter's rages. She's calm most of the time. But when she goes into Rage Mode, it's un-fuckin'-stoppable. This bitch can rage at 110% capacity for twelve hours at a time, and nothing - nothing - can tame the bottomless, boundless raging.

He had a bet with a real scientist that he could name a bundle of resources worth 1000 dollars now and in 10 years the guy would give him the cost over 1000, or Ehrlich would pay the difference in constant dollars. I think Ehrlich ended up owing over 700 dollars or something like that.

Von Mises was the first to say that Socialists can't solve the problem of Economic Calculation - what the hell is something worth - without markets. Fredrich Hayek enlarged upon that after that, which might be the one you remembered.

Von Mises is one of those economics professors who struggled to get a job because he didn't agree with conventional views in the 40s & 50s.

I have a science fiction novel, The Sheep Look Up, bu John Brunner, which details the near-term ecological collapse of the United States.

It was written in 1972.

One of the reasons why the environmental movement is increasingly relying on teenagers is that teenagers aren't aware that there have been constant predictions of ecological doom for the last half-century, none of which has remotely panned out.

Yes, he's pretty ...academic but he does toss in some comedy. In his book Socialism he has a footnote describing some French socialist's perfect world where the young kids would be sent out at night to do heavy road work 'for society'. Look I was a kid with brothers and sisters and I can imagine what kind of chaos trying to get us lined up to do heavy lifting at night after school would have been like.

If you want an accessible author of early economic and anti socialist thought you could try Bastiat. His shout book 'The Law' is a classic. He's very funny because much of his stuff was put out in newspapers at the time (1845 or so)

In the past, I could take or leave Tom. But since his Adam Schiff and Joe Biden impersonations, the guy would be the leader for an Emmy this year if he wasn't on FOX.

Truly world-class snark.

142 Transcript of a political ad I just saw here in SoCal:

"DON'T BELIEVE THE NEGATIVE ADS ABOUT MICHAEL BLOOMBERG!!

The ads say he's unqualified. Mike's got 60 billion qualifications right here!!

The ads say he's short. Mike Bloomberg is 9 feet tall! Kobe Bryant used to try and draft him for the NBA!

The ads say he tried to ban sodas. Mike Bloomberg drinks 12 2-liters of Big Red every damn day!! Some days he can never even make it off the toilet!!

And, the ads say he abused his personal staff. But we all know poor people lie!!

Don't believe the little poverty-stricken cockroaches about Mike Bloomberg. He's the guy for 2020!!"

143 The top picture reminds me of overseeing Evening Colors as Command Duty Officer. Sunset, either a working pier or the navigable channel beyond the stern, and a sharp salute for the promise of America. It did tick me off that some tried to hustle off the weather decks to avoid standing at attention. I would call them over to stand with me.

Thanks, Misanthropic Humanitarian.

The city-run Portland Planning and Sustainability Commission voted last December to require new private buildings downtown to include spaces where houseless Portlanders can "rest," which could include sleeping and pitching tents.

Then the adults intervened, and removed that proposal - for now. Give it a few years, and I'm sure it will be city policy.

Yes, he's pretty ...academic but he does toss in some comedy. In his book Socialism he has a footnote describing some French socialist's perfect world where the young kids would be sent out at night to do heavy road work 'for society'. Look I was a kid with brothers and sisters and I can imagine what kind of chaos trying to get us lined up to do heavy lifting at night after school would have been like.

If you want an accessible author of early economic and anti socialist thought you could try Bastiat. His shout book 'The Law' is a classic. He's very funny because much of his stuff was put out in newspapers at the time (1845 or so)

228 It did feel weird in the waiting room, in my short wait before surgery. There was a TV showing Matlock reruns. Lame. The only good news was no commercials.

When I was in the waiting room before my cataract surgery, the anesthesiologist came by to ask whether I needed/wanted anything-- so I asked him if he could switch the TV from CNN to a baseball game, any team. He was happy to oblige (he hated CNN too), so I got to watch the Mets until it was time for the pre-surgery sedative.

234 One question regarding climate prediction. It's a relatively simple matter to come up with a mathematical model that matches (or approximates) what has happened in the past, since you know past measurements already, but how many of these models have a track record of predicting what will happen in upcoming years and then have those predicted outcomes actually occur? Without needing to further adjust the calculations to fit additional measurements, that is.

None, and they also have committed the sin of 'correcting' the original data from the past to help their models.

If you thought stock forecasting was shit, climate change science models are far worse and of course get all the money. Likely there is some real science on the borders, but the directed climate institutes are grifters pure and simple.

304 NaCly Dog, my first nurse (who drenched me with drops) was beautiful and extremely pleasant. Funny she had my mom's maiden name. I told her I would have asked her out but I wanted to avoid Deliverance shit.

She heartily laughed. A real doll that one (far too young for me. Or maybe too old - she had a driver's licence)

318 One of the reasons revolutionaries need to get rid of older people is because we remember.

We remember how we were all gonna die from global cooling, and then we didn't.

We remember how it was when you could make your own grownup choices about what you drank or how much salt you used and sugar- and salt-related illnesses were rarer.

We remember what it's like when the State cultivates dependence versus when opportunity is there for the taking.

We remember when kids were raised by their parents.

These kind of memories are obstacles to a State that desires control.

I did something similar once. I had a utility job at a restaurant. It was a crappy place and I put in my notice but the last day I was to work I came in and the drains in the Kitchen had backed up (again). I took one look at that mess (which I was supposed to clean up while also doing my other duties) and said "F*ck this" and walked.

The owner happened to be there and followed me out of the place screaming and yelling at me about how I'd never work anywhere else in town.

I just laughed at him and drove away.

367 I enjoyed a brief political conversation with a co-worker today. He's black and conservative, and has a populist streak. His views are really similar to mine, so he's one of the very few people I feel comfortable discussing politics with at work.

He asked me if I'm worried about Mike Bloomberg. I told him, no, I'm not.

I elaborated on this by pointing out what a petty little do-gooder tyrant Bloomberg is.

He banned restaurants keeping salt shakers on their tables.

He banned the sale of soda in quantities bigger than 16 ounces. (my friend did remember this one after I mentioned it).

He banned food donations for the homeless! Seriously! Because the city couldn't just get in there and monitor the nutritional value of that donated food. Tell me, is it better for a homeless person to eat a can of soup that has some extra fat and salt, or to eat, well, nothing at all?

If Bloomberg were to succeed at buying the Democrat nomination, our incumbent President, who loves Big Macs and Diet Coke, would just destroy him by "necklacing" him with his own record.

Well, my theory is that tomorrow you should vote for Bernie, just to put him far enough ahead that if he doesn't eventually get the nomination his supporters will really, really feel like he was cheated.
My own primary comes one week later, and I will either vote for Bernie (if he didn't win on Super Tuesday), or Biden or Bloomberg (if Bernie is ahead), just to make it a more divided Dem convention.

Read some articles around the time of the storm... not so much..

This is the same guy who insisted on letting the NY Marathon go on in spite of large parts of the city having no electricity

Oh, and two years before a massive snowstorm hit NYC which paralyzed the city for days because Bloomberg didn't have a clue how to organize snow plowing operations. His reaction to people not being able to get out of their streets? "Take in a Broadway show, the theaters are open and tickets are available". Oh, and he made sure the street in front of Gracie Mansion was plowed first and often.

416 Hi, Emmie! Yes, he does have a good head on his shoulders. He's just a little more susceptible to the fake news than I am.

That doesn't mean I think he's, like, a worrywart or anything; I, personally, was more worried about Pete Puffer, a young charismatic nobody coming out of nowhere, occupying a fairly high position in the "intersectional" hierarchy and not having much of a paper trail... I kind of thought thought he'd end up being the next Obama. I know a lot of liberals who'd've have been really excited at the prospect of going out and voting for our first gay President, just like they were excited in 2008 to vote for our first black President.

"I have helped the Democratic Party a lot in terms of funding. I funded
the races in Virginia where there was a background check issue for guns,
which is one of my real issues, and it went from red to blue,"
Bloomberg explained. "I funded 24 House contests the last time, in 2018.
Twenty-one of them won and that flipped the House from red to blue and
put Pelosi in charge."

521 If I can be excused for going over already plowed terrain again: I think the Wuhan virus was engineered as test for therapies to prevent various viral diseases, possibly HIV.

It is very infectious so it is easy to transmit to test animals, has a long incubation period so it has a long period to be affected by therapies and is not immediately lethal to the test animals. It is also supposed to be carrying odd sequences that are found in other viruses than the Corona type

China has been very interested in HIV (which in the 90's they were almost unwilling to admit existed) and recently had gene engineered a set of girls with an HIV resistant sequences added in the DNA, in absolute violation of human testing protocols. However, I would add that any disease would work in this theory, including the cold viruses.

There is a lot of interest in CRISPR functions in various bacteria: it is a natural method for some bacteria to protect from viruses by employing protein sequences to snip viral RNA. It is used in the lab for gene editing and allows specific sequences of RNA to be snipped to affect small unique sequences to be removed. This is much more selective than the old procedure of, say, using gamma radiation to smash DNA to see what the damage could be.
However it is being looked at as a therapy in and of itself, should it be possible to use it in other cells as a sort of prevention for viral infections, or to reverse or cure various viral infections that are chronic and incurable by current techniques.
Even more important could be that the viruses (Virii?) find ways to protect themselves, and the CRISPR finds alternate pathwhays to damage the virus RNA.

I can see the report that a corona virus that causes pneumonia being a fairly boring report that would be ignored as long as economically benign. I can also see if it were to come out that the virus was engineered to include HIV sequences, I can see the upper echelon of the PRC government losing their sh*t over "AIDS spread by sneezing".

Even worse, it is a novel virus just jumped to humans, and may either become less virulent and lethal, or more

Posted by: kbdabear at March 03, 2020 12:15 AM (qAR6u)

Studebaker got a modern OHV V8 in 1951, just two years after Cadillac and Oldsmobile. The engine was built very stoutly, like the Caddy and the Olds, because at the time, engineers were anticipating super high octane fuels, and 15:1 compression ratios. That never materialized, and Chevy engineers could make the SBC smaller and lighter, knowing it would not have to undergo those cylinder pressures.

Little LCD was K thru 8 at St. Louise Parish, Bellevue.

St. Louise parish is the Bellevue C-school that doesn't have the rich and famous, only working stiffs and mostly 5 to 10 year old cars in the afternoon carpool lane. Not like the other Bellevue C-school.

Yeah, the annual fundraisers were always lots of "fun". And always many activities and demands on one's time.

Posted by: Miklos, PMP


He was in ATL, wasn't he? Did anyone ever find out what became of him? I know he just sort of dropped off the radar at one point as things got bad. Funny how my situation echoes his.

Not sure about the GoFundMe, exactly, that might be a thing. I do have PayPal and another payment app set up if anyone's interested, I hate to be an Internet beggar but, well, one of my problems is not asking for help when I should. I've already had help from good people of late and hate to keep asking, but my options right now are bad.

Guess I gotta swallow my pride. Hopefully I can close the gap and get something good going soon. If some of you crazy, beautiful folk want to help, contact me at old.nic at stompershack-dot-com and I can forward the means at my disposal.

Also, if you have ideas or want a more full idea what I do, contact me there. There are reasons I don't discuss who my employer is in open channels, more out of concern for tracking things back there than anything else.

549 "The #FakeNews hoaxes regarding Russia and Ukraine have been merely
annoying. However, the Democrat/elite media hoax regarding the
coronavirus is outright destructive."

It's surreal to watch the left work so hard to hype something up so they can assign blame, while at the same time it's actually being fucked up pretty hard by a whole bunch of other people, most of which at the leadership level are Dems.

Anything Trump manages to do to prop up the market and keep people calm is a miracle.

Even while state governments are making an honest effort to trot out the much-needed "all is well", several of them have been quietly buying and assembling prefab housing units for 2-3 weeks now. More much effective and lowkey than China's army of excavators.

We do not have a bunch of crews with fancy protective equipment, suits, and training to respond to this. It's regular firefighters, EMS, nursing home workers, etc. Someone has to decide whether to keep them working without proper support until they have to be pulled off (all the while potentially infecting others), or to try and yank them after exposures until they start running out of staff.

There isn't much risk of losing a lot of the workers - in fact there is some indication that pneumonia from this in non-elderly is actually less lethal than from other sources. The risk is that it *is* lethal to the other groups at risk.

I'm watching this happen firsthand; people who have spent the last month just intermittently watching the talking heads really don't understand what we're getting into, fake news panic or not. It's going to be both not the doom they're carrying on about, and also shitty.

Round male pins 'can' be removed with an increadibly thin, tiny screwdriver. The trik is to get both locks to disengage at the same time. The removal tool is hollow and fits over the pin while it is inside the plug, disengaging both locks. Flat pins only have one lock and can be disengaged with a tiny screwdriver.

575 IIRC, the trick to Molex connectors is to have a tool which is a tube that just slips over the O.D. of the male/female pin, and compresses the latches so the pin can be withdrawn from the plastic block.

Depends on which series you're looking at. Molex refers to a wide range of connectors. Some of them will have the series or housing part number molded into the body. Check Mouser's website to narrow down what you need.

One big thing to keep in mind with Molex though. For some of the series, there are connectors that look identical, but are different sizes. The two most common have either .062 or .093 dia pins.

In general, you'll need two tools. The extraction tool is a little tube with plunger that will push the two locking tabs in so that you can push the crimp barrel/pin out of the housing. And you'll need a way to crimp the new pins, preferably with the odd heart-shaped crimp cavity. The tools are available on Mouser, but you can get knock-offs on ebay that work fine for a fraction of the price.

So why isn't anybody talking about this? People are jumping up and down on both sides on television because Sanders praised Fidel Castro, because Sanders is a self-described Democratic Socialist -- that's bad, there's no doubt. But is it worse than what he believes on policy? It's not even close.

You know what's way worse than anything he's ever said about Fidel Castro? His belief, his argument that anyone on the planet who sneaks into the United States should get free healthcare and free college tuition. That's the case he's making.

So here's the obvious question -- what would that do to our medical system and our universities? How long before they collapse? Not long.

These are some of the best things in our country, what we brag about -- gone. How do we pay for all of this, by the way? And if it's such a great idea, why is no other nation considering doing it? Why has no other nation ever done this?

The geologic record, the Mother of All Proxy Databases, didn't/doesn't really permit any other conclusion.

Recently deceased physicist Freeman Dyson called the "climate change" thing the greatest scandal in scientific history. Besides inertia and potential $$ costs, which seem to have kept broader public views fairly sane (i.e. quite skeptical), though, I wonder if the Great Dumbing Down will eventually give the Totalitarian Lysenkoists the victory.

613 Um, Tucker's a bit late (30 years?) WRT to the university thing, to a great extent. Yeah yeah STEM, but the hollowing out of the university and the moral/intellectual inversion (to racist authoritarian fantasism) has already happened and represents a yuuuge threat in itself.

In any case, while Free Stuff for illegals is not a national, presidential campaign winner (though it's, unbelievably, possibly a winner and absolutely not an anchor in many big states), that's kind of a distraction.

DHS may actually begin enforcing "public charge" rules on legal immigrants very soon (no welfare for non-refugee legal immigrants, a concept and policy that literally goes back to the first formal immigration legislation in our history). Ironically, or something.

Kind of related, IL has now upped the ante on "sanctuary" lawlessness - even convicted criminals (murderers, rapists, etc) are no longer handed to ICE (all such people are automatically - duh - strong deportation candidates). What could go wrong?

Well, one of them just assaulted a *3-yr old girl* at a McDonald's in Chicago.

You know, Bernie has completely flip-flopped on immigration in order to appeal to the SJW woke kids he needs.

Not long ago, a Republican House member joked about how he was closer to Bernie Sanders on immigration that he was the Corporate Cuck Open Borders wing of his own party.

Bernie was against illegal immigration and wanted to curb legal immigration. Why? Well, he's a hardcore socialist. Workers over capitalists. He wanted to make labor expensive, and hated bringing throngs over to drive wages down for low end workers.

But now that he's got Dem nomination aspirations, he had to abandon that and go full open borders.

620 publius, excellent points - and note the quotes of the likes of Clinton (the failed disastrous president, not his dumb sociopathic criminal wife) and Schumer not that long ago - no less stark and sensible than almost any Trump utterance on the topic.

But the "evil capitalists" are winning, and the GOP (and, allegedly, elements in the WH) are fully on board, when it comes to depressing wages and prospects for Americans in IT (H1B and related issues).

"America First" (sound of snickers in the auditorium).

Waldom is a good brand for pin extractors, maybe the best. For good effect, push it down over the pin at issue and wiggle it around a bit, maybe a cyclical rotating motion while holding the extractor in axial alignment with the pin while applying light pressure on the wire on the back of the connector to disengage the little flapdoodle ears of the pin where they insist upon digging into the plastic housing over time and space and hold on like grim death. Use both hands if necessary.

As long as you match up the wire gauge with the proper pins for that gauge, it'll be fine. There are two crimps on the pin, one for the bare wire, the other goes over the insulation as a strain relief. You'll need to crimp both to ensure that it's secure.

Solder really isn't meant to be a structural element, so personally, I'd leave it off the connector. On the other hand, it's not likely to really hurt anything, so if it gives you a warm and fuzzy, go for it. Just don't expect it to hold the wire in and of itself, be sure that the crimp is secure before adding the solder.

631 A tiny spot of solder with a non-manly iron, 10 or 15 Watt is usually not a bad idea.

If you have seen info about not soldering cuz it makes the connection brittle, that comes from aircraft practice. A&P stuff with 9 cylinder radial vibrates a good bit, especially if it swallows a valve or two, so most connections were solderless. I read that in a book.

Car stuff is kind of a coin flip.

Having watched a clip of current and former Dem pols being Attila the Hun hawks against illegal immigration only a few short years ago, they flipped the script for two reasons: 1) OrangeManBad, so anything Trump wants, even if they agreed with him, they reflexively go against him and, 2) They need a new voting base as the blacks begin to wake up and realize they are on a Democrat plantation once again. In a way, Trump restarted the Underground Railroad with the MAGA hat as the not-so-secret password.

Trump was a friggin' genius when he asked blacks to vote for him in 2016: "What have you got to lose?" Such a simple, yet true, question the dummies who for vote for shitty (mostly black) Democrat politicians in shithole Blue cities could understand; all they had to do was look around them. But Trump is a retard. Uh-huh, sure.

Speaking of soldering and on other end of the size scale, years ago, probably around the early 2000s, I decided to make some damn good jumper cables.

I would always get pissed off with the existing jumper cables. Typical problem was in the winter, there would always be one diesel tractor battery that went bad, and we'd have to jump it off. It takes lots of current to spin a cold diesel. I pegged my Hall Effect clamp-on ammeter one time trying to measure it. 999A! It was over a 1000A needed. I've seen the cables jump from the magnetic forces of that high current spike.

That's the disadvantage of low voltage/high current.

The cable connections were the weak link behind the actual clamp to the battery post terminals. So one day, I said I'm gonna make some damn good jumper cables.

I made two sets. Medium and heavy. For the medium, I used #2 welding cable, and for the heavy, #1/0 cable. I ordered some hellaciously tight clamping parrot-jaw clamps.

They came with mechanical connectors, which I used, but I filled them up with solder. Just like a plumbing solder job. The clamps had removable terminals, which bolted to the clamps. The lugs were large crimp style. Even came with copper foil to wrap around the fine stranded cable ends, protecting the strands.

I made those up, but applied solder flux, then heated them up with a torch and filled it up with solder.

Those things have lasted 20 years, and work beautifully.

I really don't think Trump is going to make any progress with the Black vote for a multitude of reasons.


And Blacks make up such a small percentage of the population that even if he were to say double his 2016 number from 6pct to 12pct it would pale in comparison if Trump could simply do 2 percentage points better with white woman.


I've lived and worked in areas that have significant black populations, I have not met or talked to a single black person that has ever voted Republican.


While we don't overtly talk politics at work, the times that politics comes up, its obvious they didn't support Trump in 2016 and that they are not going to support him in 2020.


So to sum up, Trump should go after every vote he can but don't go overboard with trying to win over a group that routinely votes Donk 92 to 100 pct of the time.


It would be like McCains pandering to the Hispanic vote, he ended up gettting the smallest percentage of the Hispanic vote when compared to other GOP Presidents because they simply voted for the SCOAMF.


If Biden is the candidate then SCOAMF campaigns with him and Blacks vote for Biden.


If Bernie is the candidate then he will simply buy their votes.

A coffee bean store I go to makes their own blend. 90% two varieties of coffee beans plus 10% dried chicory per pound; they have a written recipe they follow when you order it. It is good stuff.

Biden has to survive the rigors of the campaign trail without verbally torpedoing his own run as well as survive the debates with Trump before anyone votes. The first point is iffy and the second point is a loser for Sundowner Joe.

If your local store doesn't make it, you can order it from the store I go to, Porto Rico Importing (Est. 1907, so they must be doing something right), on Bleecker St. in NYC, for $11 a pound; they have a web site. Mail order is more expensive than if bought at the store thanks to shipping, natch, but at least you can get it. The shipping is very expensive, so it's best to order more than one pound of anything. I also really enjoy their Costa Rican coffee beans. And they make an everyday blend called Peter's Blend, named for the chef/owner of a nearby Italian Restaurant who had it made for his establishment, which is also excellent.

The prices for the Hawaiian Kona and Jamaican Blue Mountain beans will gag anyone with any sense. The Kona is a bargain at $45 per pound while the Jamaican is $100 a pound. Needless to say, they are way out of my price range.

BTW, I was wrong about the New Orleans blend mix: 1/2 Mocha and Java, 1/4 French Mocha, 1/4 French Chicory.

The beans are always fresh as they really move at the store and don't sit around.

That's what I think. They don't want to sacrifice their young 'talent', such as they are, in 2020 so Joe will be the sacrificial victim. After losing a presidential run, it's very difficult to come back and get the nod a second time. Nixon waited one cycle, in 1964, before running again in 1968 after losing in 1960.

Posted by: rickb223

Featured dancers got more money.

I was not one, because my Shag Champion parents neglected my upbringing.

In SC you can have Shag tags on your car-My father's big ass Caddy had Shag 69.

I laughed, and my parents thought I was crazy (and they might have been right).

798 The Tom Luongo quote: "The great myth of central planning is that capital can be rationally allocated through the elimination of profit and incentive. And that will just magically produce the right outcomes for society."

I think it's wrong, central planning can rationally allocate capital after you eliminate profit and incentive. You just have to treat people exactly like cattle. All jobs should be directed toward that end. Education is redundant except for the extent to which the job requires. If possible, you'd probably prefer they didn't learn language except when needed. Likewise, every decision should be toward the goal of reaching and maintaining whatever population you like. Including the leaders, nobody should be treated differently in the least. If you do all that, you can probably keep your people farm running forever.

Though, that, in the end, is just existing. No matter how the communists and socialists paint it, their preferred form of government isn't capable of more than that. The more you allow the market to allocate the production and distribution of goods, the more goods the market can produce. Why? Incentives. While even a worm will turn away from pain, even an ant will seek out food. Negative incentives are irrationalities. You want the hurting to stop, but you will do what you can so you suffer the least losses. Plus, there is a limit to how much pain can be given. Positive incentives are motivating, and since there is no real limit to how high they can scale, and humans aren't really set up to think, well, I have enough. Thus, while central planning can keep a population going, it takes a market to keep them "alive."

808 So, todays happy speculation is that scientists working at the Wuhan Bioweapons lab sold their experimental subject animals to supplement their poor government salaries. The thinking, or so the story goes, is "if the animal isn't dead, it's gold!" I heard something like this from a tinfoil hat wearer on Tucker about a week ago, and ignored it. But now it seems to be repeated more often, and by mainstream sources.
