Hi-Ho ONT! Away!

Welcome to Thursday's ONT. I'm writing this Wednesday night, so I don't know for sure, but if everything went as planned the movers picked up everything I own today and I'm currently sitting in an empty house, huddled over a flickering iPad with only the warmth of a candle to sustain me. More on that in a minute, but meanwhile, as the Lone Ranger says, “ta dah dump, ta dah dump, ta dah picture dump”.

Tonight's ONT brought to you by Morons:

Usually there's a picture here, but I wanted to take a moment to highlight just how special this community is.

Exhibit the First: Alberta Oil Peon

My oldest son, Big, moved back to Alberta a few months ago. Unfortunately, his car wouldn't pass Alberta import inspection, so I sent him to AOP. AOP said something along the lines of “Yeah, I looked at his car and I've seen deer that were shot in the mountains and then dragged 10 miles behind an ATV that looked better. The only way he's going to get that thing to pass is if he gets 32 porn stars to fuck the inspector”. So, problem. The car is still licensed in the States, but he needs to get a Provincial licensed car.

AOP goes out and finds a friend who is selling an old car. He wants aboot $35,000 Canadian for it, but since that works out to something like a nickel in real money, I tell him to buy it. Then I get an email from AOP, and if you know him from his posts, it goes something like this:

“Got the car back to my place. It runs well, but the transmission oil registered about ½ a degree hot when I checked, so I dropped the tranny, tore it apart completely and fabbed a new one from raw ore I had lying around. The tires were a bit worn, so I chopped down a rubber tree and made new ones. The engine was good, all I had to do was strip it down, sandblast all of the parts, and put it back together. I also replaced the windshield wipers, but there's a dent in the driver's side door, I'm not sure what to do with that”.

Exhibit the Second: Jim (Sunk New Dawn)

When I announced that I was moving to Texas, I got an email from Jim offering the damndest thing. “Hey, I know you have 4 vehicles, I'd like to fly up and drive the RV down, towing the pickup, so that you and your wife can drive your two cars yourselves and make the move in 1 trip instead of 2”.

What an offer. What an incredible offer. Words can't express how much easier that is going to make the whole move. That's it. That's all there is. Jim's taking a weekend out of his life, and driving 1300 miles in a big old pig of an RV, towing a pickup, just to make my life easier. I was floored when he offered, and I'm floored now. He'll be here tomorrow and Saturday morning we head out. What an incredible gesture.

I made sure not to pack the bourbon.

So there you have it. Two magnificent Morons, doing what Morons do, and my family is the beneficiary of both. I've profusely thanked both of them privately, but I felt they deserved this public acknowledgment of their generosity. God bless you both.

That's it for the ONT, Next time I write one, it'll be from the Lone Star State of Texas. Peace!

Even my neighbours here in Oz don't know that I own guns. Heck, my FAMILY doesn't know about all the guns that I own.

.. and before you ask, despite what you may have heard, owning guns is NOT banned in Australia.

On the shore, dimly seen thro' the mist of the deep,
Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the evening's last beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream
'Tis the Overnight Thread. Oh! long may it wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Puts me in mind of the old saying: "Before you criticize someone, try walking a mile in their shoes. That way, when you do criticize them, you're a mile away, and you have their shoes". Enjoy the new RV, Jim!

103 But just now he said under the Green New Deal you can't watch TV if the winds not blowing.

He's absolutely right. About a decade ago, a British electrical executive said that people needed to get rid of the obsolescent idea that electricity would always be available at the flick of a switch.

California is the model - if electrical demand is high, and the wind isn't blowing and the sun isn't shining, no electricity for you. (The rich will buy generators, of course.)

There will be other surprises in the Green New Deal - rationing gasoline and air travel, for example.

I think that percentage reflects the newbies. You know, the people driving around TX with bumper stickers that read "I wasn't born in TX but I got here as fast as I could!"

To wit: some years ago working a temp job, I was approached by a guy who had just moved from CA. He heard me talking about guns with a few other people and he asked me where he could get his gun registered. I explained to him that doesn't happen in TX and that DPS doesn't care as long as you are not a felon. If you are not a felon, you can own an arsenal.

Almost everyone I know outside of a city in Ohio owns firearms, sometimes multiple firearms.

My BiL, for instance, has guns all over the house. He has a shotgun stashed in an alcove next to the front door.

And inside the cities, I bet there are lots of "un-polled" youts and such that have guns, and aren't going to 'fess up to that.

I mean, did they poll South Euclid (outside of Cleveland) that is full of old Jewish folks (all Democrats)?

And Michigan. Everybody in Michigan has a gun.

"If the president had done his job, had done his job from the beginning, all the people would still be alive. All the people - I'm not making this up. Just look at the data. Look at the data."

It is a hobby to some and that is cool Many really enjoy it. I did it for a couple of years but at some point let it go. For sure the lather you can get from a good brush and soap beats the squirt can stuff.

But I also just dropped it one day. I have sung the praises of Bic three bladed disposables here before. I am not talking the cheap Bics, but the ones that cost about a 10 spot for three. I can seriously use a three pack for six months. But I don't shave every day so maybe that is a factor. Still, they work for me.

I'd say something here to insult my own looks, but I think Insomniac has that shtick monopolized. I figure he really looks like Tom Cruise with a beard, but it's a great line, and I don't want to mess up his game.

Since 4/19 when I broke my ankle I've let my hair grow. Have it trimmed every 6 mpnths, but now have it long enough to keep in a ponytail.

Beard comes and goes. It's getting so gray I don't like it to get so long, but usually have one to some degree.

You underestimate my laziness. And the time I give over to my teeth every day.

(Not kidding either. Now that my orthodontist is done torturing me for a princely sum, the routine with teeth is kicked up a notch. I spend at least 5-6 minutes per session fiddling with my teeth. I probably spend about 3-4 minutes shaving.)

It is a hobby to some and that is cool Many really enjoy it. I did it for a couple of years but at some point let it go. For sure the lather you can get from a good brush and soap beats the squirt can stuff.

But I also just dropped it one day. I have sung the praises of Bic three bladed disposables here before. I am not talking the cheap Bics, but the ones that cost about a 10 spot for three. I can seriously use a three pack for six months. But I don't shave every day so maybe that is a factor. Still, they work for me.
Posted by: Quint at September 17, 2020 10:34 PM (8GwCf)

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

My personal favorite razor was the Mach 3 by Gillete. My beard comes in slowly, so I can get away with only shaving once a week (though I prefer twice. Beard gets itchy after a week).

I stopped using a razor, though. Decided the clean shaven look wasn't good for me. So now I use a beard trimmer, and take it down to stubble once or twice a week.

Posted by: Aetius451AD Work Laptop at September 17, 2020 10:35 PM (cI3Q7)

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

The key to using a safety razor without carving your head up like a Christmas goose is to use short strokes and keep the razor as close to 90 degrees as possible. When I was a kid and my Dad was teaching me how to do this, he said to imagine you're using a straight broom and trying to sweep dirt out of the corner. A safety razor is all I've ever used.
Also, if you're having trouble with it, get some of that "Shave Secret" shaving oil. Pretty much every drug store has it. It's like face armor, you could hardly cut yourself even if you are Joe Biden.

I told my one student who attends class live that I hope that we can retrain ourselves after this is all over to not regard other people as poisonous.

I got a health exemption because I have developed respiratory problems every time I have had to wear a mask for more than a few minutes. I feel sorry for everyone else in their masks.

Yesterday I sallied into Walmart without a mask and the nice masked policeman at the entrance smiled and waved at me.

334 304 My personal favorite razor was the Mach 3 by
Gillete. My beard comes in slowly, so I can get away with only shaving
once a week (though I prefer twice. Beard gets itchy after a week).



I stopped using a razor, though. Decided the clean shaven look
wasn't good for me. So now I use a beard trimmer, and take it down to
stubble once or twice a week.

339 Comment about that PA court decision.

The mailin vote fraud only works if they have real ballots of registered voters.

The advantage they are giving the Dems is knowing how many votes they need to harvest. But the GOP can harvest too. And if anyone voted in person, that ballot gets tossed out.

If Trump's lead is 100K or so, they can't get enough cheating to win, without having the election results tossed out.

11/11 is the day PA must certify, or the magic number to win drops to 259, and Trump has that EV total wrapped up now.

Off topic my wife got a door to door pollster this week. She is registered Dem but has been voting GOP since Bush. She told the polster that she is a Dem and is 100% certain to walk on glass to vote for Trump.

Afterwards the pollster thanks her for walking away. Making me wonder who was conducting the poll.

And what if the officials in Dem-run states like WI and Michigan refuse to certify the results if Trump wins?

I can see them deliberately sowing chaos and doubt - claiming it's too close to call even if it's now - so the pantifa and BLM shock troops can get out there and riot.

Nobody was much a fan of this, and the cops ironically had to go over there to prevent an altercation. Around this time, I walked up to a couple of them and asked, "hey, is it breaking any laws if I tell that guy to fuck off on my way out?" They laughed and said, "hey man, freedom of speech!"

In the end I just flipped the guy off as I left, because a couple of the cops were right there and I didn't want to be accused of provoking anything. But the point is, mid-Missouri PD is based.

422 Pickleball is a cross between tennis, badminton and table tennis. Played with a paddle instead of a racquet on a smaller court than tennis with a lower net. The scoring is ridiculous and serving is confusing. If you've played racquetball it is pretty easy to pick up. It is designed to be easier ont he body than tennis or racquetball so those of us over 29 can play and compete pretty evenly with the youngsters.

I'm not sure what the point of monocles were before, but in my case, I could literally wear one and have it correct my vision.

One eye sees perfectly. The other is nearsighted. When not wearing glasses, one eye does the work of both. This is the sole reason why I wear glasses. And if you look at the lenses, you will notice one is designed to let everything pass through.

I wear glasses because DPS has an "A" restriction on my license and I do not anticipate our comrades in khaki or blue will be optometrists. Also, to see to it the other eye doesn't go.

Hence the monocle.

San Antonio is trying hard to be like Austin and that for me is a recipe for disaster. I love it there; I know its quirks and I can still get through town with my eyes shut.

502 Bannon laid out tonight on TuCa - that media (and social media) will absolutely refuse to call states for Trump on election night, even if he's clearly won. And what if the officials in Dem-run states like WI and Michigan refuse to certify the results if Trump wins?
----------
Bannon didn't know what he is talking about. The media doesn't call elections. The winner of a state comes when the secretary of state certifies the election.

Those dates are set by state law. If PA doesn't certify by 11/11, then PA gets ZERO electoral votes. They end up sitting out the election.

The last state that must certify in Maryland on 12/8 (might be 12/3, going by memory).

Again, the way to stop the fraud is for Trump voters vote in person. They can't change any vote of a registered voter who voted in person, and ballots can't be submitted for unregistered voters. If there are more Trump voters than Dem voters + manufactured fake votes from voters on the rolls, then Trump wins the state. No matter how long they take to count.

We shouldn't have to wait until 11/11 to know who won Pennsylvania. The point he's making is that they will do everything they can to prevent Trump from declaring victory on election night. Which he certainly should be able to do. If these states are holding out til the last second to certify their elections then that is just further evidence of their attempts to commit fraud.

537 We did t really declare ourselves a sanctuary, there really isn't an enforcement agency, the Sheriff and health department both declared not it. That leaves the state, they aren't going to send anyone here to enforce. Besides, arresting Amish and Mennonites isn't a good look.

We were up in Holmes county a few weeks ago.
Yeah, no masks required in shops, and only the freakazoids visiting from Akron or some place like that wore masks.

It was....refreshing. We were there to shop for furniture in Berlin, looking at more pieces to buy for the bedroom.

538 I visited San Antonio many times. I thougt it was a nice place. Loved the River Walk. Lot of nice restaurants and clubs. My brother was stationed at Lackland AFB so I would catch a Southwest flight from Dallas and go see him. Flights only took about fourty-five minutes and cost thirty bucks round trip. That was back before security at airports got so bad. Heck, it was fun to fly back then. Good times.

542 If states are holding out to the last moment to call the election, then that will only help Trump challenge a state's result. The more obvoius they get, the more scrutiny that will come to bear. A lot of the in-day cheating doesn't hold up well in a recount.

Remember the recount they tried in MI? Trump kept getting more votes. They stopped it before they reached the point that someone was going to go to jail for election fraud.

If election night Trump has more votes in a state than in 2016 and is winning by more than the differential between uncounted Dem ballots over GOP ballots, then the state will be called. Any delay will end up in courts shutting it down.

This happened in Broward in 2016. They were trying to keep counting, when DeSantis was ahead by more votes than were in dispute. Courts told the county to certify and submit.

Posted by: Martini Farmer at September 17, 2020 11:31 PM (3H9h1)



1973 I took a College racquetball PE class. Wound up playing a lot of 3 man cut throat with a kid from Israel and one from Syria. The Syrian guy was big. Easily 6'3" and about 230. The Israeli was about 5'7" and maybe a buck fifty.
we got on well together and had fun.

Then the Yom Kippur war started. We were standing there about to start and I looked at them. Nobody wanted to play. They told me they were getting flights home. We shook hands and I wished them both well and they said good luck to each other.

I never saw them again and I never played again.
I pray they are both well.

545 VT is famously lib ala Bernie and Ben and Jerry. But it is also mostly small towns and the state was a model for 2A for decades. I don't know what they are doing now, but back when I followed this stuff, Vermont didn't even require a CHP.

Even Bernie was not a crazy gun grabber when he had to appeal to Vermont voters. When he went national, he pretty much said grab everyone else's guns, but not the people in Vermont.

562 Dave in Fla, I believe MI stopped its recount because Wayne County did not meet minimum first-check of balloting integrity ("roster" or number of ballots cast did not match actual vote numbers - in many cases not even close - and that over 60% of precincts had this problem!!!) required by state law for a recount.

This, of course, is a stunning story, worthy of top billing with any other story of the last 10 years. It illustrates how several US states, including "swing" states that have been vital to every Dem election success for decades, do not meet a minimum standard of election integrity.

As I used to say ad nauseam, these states would not have their elections recognized by the US, EU, or UN if they were sovereign countries having their first plebiscites or elections, for example after a civil war. THAT is how bad it is.

So of course ..... crickets, of course from Dems, and generally from GOP too.

good point. The problem is that is there are free states where people can still sell firearms as private property to another. But yeah, it should be taken into account. Is this only self reporting from a pollster?
The libs often say there are more firearms in America than there are people. I don't doubt this. But if true, the numbers don't add up. I don't know the true numbers but this poll is not likely that rigorous of a study. Then again, i have no problem with a lack of precision. Some things are meant to be unknown.

568 Beards make this model hotter. Covers his weak upper lip, frames and darkens so his eyes are intensified. His very short beard pulls together his features, the first photo his features sort of float around his vacant face. And this beard works because he is a young man and his beard is not a neck beard like that other guy in a previous video I saw. Pleasant enough, but ugh, no chin apparently because the hair goes untrimmed from his chest in a straight line to his chin, gross and unkempt. And I'm all, "Hey, what happened to your chin?" But this model is tight.

569 Today was first duty day at the range that was "normal" - i.e., not packed, including with first-time gun owners. As is usual in September, almost every shooter (on the main range) was a bolt-action shooter sighting in for hunting season. One group going to WY for elk, white tail and antelope, several to CO for the same, a few to other places in the west.

The impressive heat may have also reduced numbers. And many callers were wondering whether we were even open, as last week the entire area was under evacuation for wildfires.

Navy ship complement and Coast Guard counter-terrorism unit took the smaller ranges all day, and there were night sessions planned too.

What might be more telling is to break down each state geographically. In my little county in NE Washington, there are roughly 40k. If my circle of people I know is even remotely representative of this county then I would hazard that 90 % is a realistic number for my area. Throw on top the number of guns in each household.

The children scribes over at the Times actually have no real idea what an actual layoff is, if you suffer to read the article closely. Apparently its evil people (ie their parents) cutting off manbun man's rent and making said manbun man pay for his own double macchino latte at Starbucks. According to manbun man writer at the Times, its not the fault of their employer or their mayor or their governor, its really Trump's/Daddy's fault...

602 Darrell, as always an excellent question.

Don't have a real answer, though I think those that study election process/integrity might.

But easy to objectively do a first-level sorting.

States with voter ID, check. States that regularly police/purge voter rolls, check. States with the most "traditional", i.e. most reliable, voting - in-person, ONE day, least absentees - big check.

So, just run those criteria against all the states, see what you find.

I wouldn't bet $10 that many solid Dem states would pass.

607 But Miklos/Barry the non-entity from Punahoo, there's always incompetence, arrogance, and mistaken estimates involved in at least one side of a conflict. The fairly universal display in WWI was unusual.

But my favorite story from the book was about the Venezuelan caballero/adventurer who enlisted in the Ottoman army (!!!), and got squeamish over anti-Armenian (anti-Christian) atrocities. What a bizarre but enlightening case.

How in the F can this be remotely lawful?

Statute has set election day for nearly 2 centuries. Other than problems/recounts/disputes, that means ONE day, that Tuesday in November.

Why can't TX just change its policy, and say voting may be on election day, but results are not reported until the day after PA reports?

And glad you enjoyed the book. My ignorance defies definition and comprehension, but of WWI, it is remarkable, given my interests.

That book was an excellent easily digestible introduction to the sprawling, wildly diverse set of crazy behaviors that was WWI.

Sighting was cancelled because of COVID crap. The sighting service is a fund raiser for the club and I think they didn't want to chance to have someone from the public sue.

The book really covered most of the fronts. About the only area missed was Atlantic convoys and South sea islands. The mercenary story from Venezuela in the Ottoman empire was simply amazing.

Election integrity in many US states, if names were changed and the whole shebang set in an "emerging democracy", would be hilarious to see assessed by int'l analysts. Basically, nobody would recognize the election.

679 Kind of related. Just after the Soviet collapse, in the early flush of well-intentioned (though often idiotic - Clinton years, Clinton and his people, barely less unfit than the Obama debacle, and not always) American aid to the former USSR, a delegation from Uzbekistan was taken to witness a US election.

In ... LOUISIANA.

Not kidding.

Why not Phila., or Chicago, you ask?

Well, at least there was a basic shared vibe for the Uzbeks - corrupt, tribal and family-based "politics". This resonated, I'm sure.

Swiss-style process integrity, not so much. But it was funny, and many laughs were had at the organizers' expense.

694 Miklos, Uzbeks and Georgians were responsible for the only edible food in the Soviet era (to be fair, fresh churned butter and Russki black bread were outstanding).

Never got to Uzbekistan. Several trips (en route to livelier locales nearby) cancelled due to "security" issues at the destination that are now comically trivial by today's standards (CWIS installations at embassies for incoming rockets).

But they made dynamite railroad troops in the Great Patriotic War. And trigger-pullers too, including the last-to-die veteran of Pavlov's House in Stalingrad.

697 Ireland is beclowning itself as much as the US in this C19 debacle. Darkly humorous, including a ridiculous policy on bars, surprisingly a big cultural and economic deal.

Posted by: rhomboid at September 18, 2020 01:59 AM (OTzUX)

698 moving abroad is not as easy as some suspect. Unless you have family connections or a lot of money to invest. I recall Ireland in particular at least to be very lenient in that if you had even Irish grandparents or even great grand parents, you could likely get a passport.

There are jobs in such high demand that make it much easier to move to another country. My guess is any legit MD could move if he wanted to. And the way things are going, even well skilled nurses likely won't have too much trouble. But other than that, unless you are bringing in capital AND providing new jobs, it is not that easy.

I know countries that will allow you to buy property or even a business, but not actually work in that business. You can own it but the jobs are for the locals.

There are lots of exceptions mind you. Many poorer countries will gladly accept retirees who buy property if they have a proven retirement income and will be of no cost to the state. But the idea that the average young Millennial can take off to Italy or France in a huff after the election is a myth.

But I did vacuum out about ten pounds of mouse nests, and a dozen mummified mice today, and applied Peon Foot Power to the big dent in the side, and knocked it out quite nicely. The side is now a little ripply, but fundamentally straight again. No point in taking it any further, unless a much-needed repaint is done. The paint has failed completely. I think it may have been one of those years when the manufacturers were dicking around with water-borne paints, instead of the good stuff with a solvent base.

But, failed paint aside, it's otherwise a capable people-mover.

718 What is it with Netflix and pedophilia?:

Star of One of Netflix's Most Popular Shows Charged With Producing Child Porn

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-54199115

Short version: Main star of the Netflix reality show "Cheer" confesses to police that he coerced at least one 13-year-old boy (along with over a dozen other victims of similar age) into sending him nude sex pix and videos.

This pedophile (prior to today's arrest) was feted and beloved by Hollywood:

"Cheer was an instant success when it was released on streaming service Netflix in January, and recently won two Emmy Awards.

Mr Harris gained popularity for his enthusiastic "mat talk" - when cheerleaders on the sidelines shout encouragement to teammates during difficult stunts.

Earlier this year, he interviewed celebrities on the Oscars red carpet for The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

His crimes probably are much more extensive:

"The charge comes after a lawsuit was filed earlier this week, in which Mr Harris was accused of child sexual exploitation and abuse of two alleged male victims."

My guess? All of Hollywood already knew he was into little boys even before he got nabbed. But that was OK with everyone at Netflix and in the media biz.

730 I spent some time in Uzbekistan courtesy of Uncle Sam's Misguided Children. I can attest to the fact that Uzbek bread is delightfully delicious. One of our staff sergeants used to have to go from K2 (our base) to the Samarkand airport periodically for reasons I don't remember after 16 years. Everytime he'd bring back a sack of Uzbek non. It had a great thick, chewy crust. The bread itself was dense without being heavy. Those round flat loaves didn't last long.

There were a lot of pretty girls who worked on base who would be very flirty with us despite their limited English. I imagine that was a big reason why the men who worked on base didn't seem to like us very much.

seems a bit harsh to me. I don't know the nic you are responding to at all, and even yours is not well known. My memory sucks but I think I recall it. So don't hold it against me.

But why go after a guy in that way? Maybe he has a sweet set up in Bali. I think most people who talk about moving abroad are full of it for the reasons I stated earlier. I also used to thing anyone that would leave the country for political reasons was week in some way.

But the country has changed. The lucky 40 percent who live in the good parts don't see it other than on tv and the net, but it has changed. I have seen places change from normal to radical before my very eyes.

I don't blame a man in his later years for pining for Italy or Poland. How nice would it be to have people who don't want to topple your statues and burn down you society? Could anyone imagine Italy or Greece toppling monuments to Zeus, or the Fontana dei quattro fiumi. It could happen but they have never gone that far.

It is true in the US it will take decades of fighting. But that is not our way, We were based on decades of schooling, not fighting. If you asked me this ten years ago I would say good riddance. Today I say Godspeed. Everyone has to find there own peace in this world. And a very large percentage of this country wants none of us to be at peace.

I would have never said this even six years ago, but there are safer and more happy places than what many go through in the USA today. Try living in a Lefty area where they dehumanize you and call you a hater. I just don't see that in Florence or even the South of France. I Don't see that in Poland either.

I don't know when you went but I loved it. Bus tours are different but that is how i did it the first time.

one thing you learn that many Americans don't realize, is that we are not the only ones facing massive illegal immigration. I once saw a map that put it into perspective. Illegals flow in from Turkey to Germany, from Sub Saharan Africa into Italy. They flow in from North Africa to France and Spain. People have no idea how invasive this is, it is easily on the scale we face.

But I loved Italy. It is outrageous, disorganized and wonderful. But it is a country and not an amusement park. That is a line that always stuck with me. Do we judge our own country as harshly as foreign nations we visit? If so, I have some choice words for parts of this country.

The point is we are one of the few countries that seems to dislike itself and its culture. The Brits do that too and for what reason I don't know. The Scots are so lefty they are now on the right. But most places in Europe at least respect their history. I just don't see Italians tearing down the Uffizi Gallery Vatican Museums.

It is a difficult discussion really. I am not giving up on America I promise you. I have people planted in hallowed ground here. But I don't blame someone who can find solace elsewhere. The country is warped in many ways from even a few decades ago. How do we get that back and can we? I know many here have discussed at the least, and national divorce.

Anyone think these Trump Derangement Zombies are just going to wake up one day and say "my bad?"

I think countries that are no longer the people for whom a country is named hate themselves. Germany is no longer German, France is no longer French, Great Britain is no longer British, et. al. But Italy is still Italian. Same for Poland, for Japan, even for China. Blame unassimilated legal and illegal immigration for that. In America, we have the worst of both worlds with immigration. We no longer demand legal immigrants assimilate, what with that 'diversity is our strength' nonsense, and illegals not giving a shit about anything but staying here off the radar and making money to send to the old country, then getting the hell out; immigration squatters, if you will.

In America, so many think we do not have our own culture or history, being so young as a Nation. But we do have a culture, many cultures in fact. We have a 2nd Amendment gun culture, a fast food culture, an entertainment culture, a mouthy 1st Amendment say what the fuck you want even if it pisses off some political hack culture, and much more, all of which are the butts of jokes around the world yet the envy of the world, too.

if any lefty wakes up it will be an immigrant who risked all who does it. What the Left has done to the schools must be admired from a strategic standpoint. Their morals are warped and they have only hurt a great nation, but they knew what they were doing. Conservatives of all stripes should at least admit the failure and then figure out who to fix it.

A few decades ago this was mostly a patriotic country. Today it isn't . Now something changed and someone has to be to blame. The reality is most are to blame, not a few, but most. That is why it is so difficult to fix, that is the exact reason. The blame has to be spread wide and far because that is the truth.

The sign-up link (https://mimome.stoatnet.org) is in the sidebar on the front page and in my nick; there's also an e-mail link, if you prefer to sign up that way. If you haven't signed up yet, please do so today. If you have signed up for the MIMoMe but didn't click the link in the email to confirm it, please do. Otherwise, we have a hard time knowing if your email address is right and that updates won't get lost. Thank you for helping us help you help us all.

For targeting purposes, it's the Milford Road exit off I-96, about half-way in between I-275 & US-23. Out-state 'ettes & 'rons what are jonesin' for a MoMe are welcome to join us as well. It's really not that far, in the grand scheme of things.

This will be a low-key, laid-back, high-speed, low-drag afternoon event. We're not promising lavish venues or cabrito or anything, but it will be (potentially) Keto-friendly & at times very loud. The pool is closed per Obergruppenfuhrer Whitmer's whim, so the synchronized swimming event has been cancelled. Mayhaps next year...

832 Darling Teej!

Thankful that I couldn't sleep bc I peeked back in here & saw you'd been by. LoveloveLOVE the brothers song, btw.

Missed you. Sorry to say, you were right to be worried. Was involved in a car accident a few weeks ago and, though my car was t-boned & hers barely damaged, my left turn means, my fault in my state. The Chinese bug meant my quarantined elderly mother forgot about paying the car
insurance, so what started as a sweet helpful boost while I was unemployed has dug me further in a hole.

The worst of it: until tonight, this site refused to load for me, so I couldn't even cry to the overnighters for pity.

Trying very very hard not to condemn myself to hell for how it's playing out. Have missed the gang here muchly, even tho not many know me.

Say a prayer?

834 We are Americans, and because we are self-governed citizens, and individuals, we can have a dramatic effect that our top-down opponents can not.

We do have a bit of an issue.

The Intelligence agencies, most of the federal government, and plenty of state and local governments are traitors.They are working for enemies of the US.

If people support Biden, they are barbarians. This includes Google, Twitter, Facebook, most other TV based media, business leaders, union leadership, and the Chamber of Commerce leadership. It is not hard at all to call them Evil.

The teachers that support him are useful idiots.

BLM and the prosecutors funded by China and Soros are the shock vanguard troops.

But with Trump and an awakened American citizenry, I like our chances.

There is a very good police state that is flexing its power, based on social media. I'd like to see my Google file.

Forewarned is forearmed. And I'm betting my life that we will win.

836 I agree that the gun ownership is not at all accurate. It shows NY with very little gun ownership. Probably polled NYC residents. Upstate would be a whole different story...So this is true in most other states where a big city dominates. I have 6 guns in Upstate, and so many hunt. Central Park isn't known as a hunters paradise.Gun ownership in a cities ghetto, would never be accurate...

The reason it's cancelled is because when it was announced they were riding high on "the revolution has begun! Lead us Robespierre!" And since that time the polls have shown this crap was starting to hurt the democrats so it's time to knock it off and cut back on the funding for it. So their planned DC riot til election had to be stopped. It's the same reason Pelosi is now condemning violence when before she was praising it.

naw. Ohio has its problems there is no doubt there. In fact, if you care about the history, they made a real mess about CCW when they finally allowed it. They made some crazy law that you had to tell an officer immediately if you had a legal firearm and a license. The whole thing was dumb and only a state that was new to gun freedom could do that. It causes some bad situations for no reason.

But no way the ownership rates are that low. This chart is off in my opinion but they likely have the right states that have the highest ownership.
