I Have Nothing To Offer But Blood, Toil, Tears, and ONT

Welcome to the Thursday ONT! What's the best way to start, an opening that truly reflects the class, decorum and intellectual maturity of the Horde? Yeah, it's a dick joke.

Government Follies

Stimulus checks are being spent on dildos, tigers, guns and stripper poles

Love country.jpg


I can think of worse things to spend the money on. I still haven't received one yet, I got a letter saying that I would get one, but so far, nada. Personally, I'm against stimulus checks at all, but if they're going to send them out, then I'm not too proud to spend the money.

In other news, Congress passed their latest “recovery” bill, and it made an interesting change to Obamacare subsidies. Previously, subsidies were limited to people who made < 400% of the federal poverty level for their family size. This bill eliminates that cap, and instead says that subsidies are available for anyone whose insurance premiums exceed 8 ½ % of their AGI. This got me thinking. Lets take a family of 5, husband, wife, both 45, and 3 kids. Put them in WV and give them an AGI of $150K. Most of us would say that they're doing pretty well, right? 8.5% of their income is $12,750. They could buy the top plan on the exchange, a pretty darn good plan with only a 1600 deductible, which would run them $48,204/year (Admittedly I chose WV for this example because it has some of the highest rates in the country) and get a check from Uncle Sugar for $35,000. I haven't found anything that says that this is not the way it would work. I ran it by my boss who though the subsidy might be limited to silver plans (in which case the check would be 29K, not 35), but we bucked it up to corporate counsel to be sure. Haven't heard back yet.

Meanwhile, the same family making $50K could get a subsidy that would knock their premium down to nothing – but that plan has a $15,000 deductible. This is just nuts, the feds shoveling money they don't have out the door to people who don't need it. I'm sure it's just a coincidence that white, upper middle class folks are a core constituency of the Democrats.

This is madness.


Thursday Night At The Movies

So, does anyone have any somewhat obscure movies they'd like to recommend? I have 2. First is Tag. I saw it a few years ago (I may have mentioned it back then) and just rewatched it this week. Based upon a true story, It Takes Planning, Caution to Avoid Being 'It', it's about a group of friends who have been playing the same game of tag for over 23 years. It's not high cinema, but it's laugh at loud funny at times. My wife and I really enjoyed watching it.

The Emperor's New Groove. I decided to watch this because scenes from it are often featured in memes (which makes sense because it came out in 2000, and all the Gen-Z meme kiddies would have watched it as children), and since I see a lot of memes while looking for ONT content, I figured I should know the source material.

Anyhow, it's a short (just over an hour) animated film starring David Spade playing himself as the emperor of a South American empire that is not named but is definitely based upon the Incas. As part of your routine Disney palace intrigue, he's turned into a llama and has to make his way back to the palace to regain his crown, all the while learning that the real prize is the friends you make along the way. It's not Toy Story, but it moves right along and I found myself chuckling more than once.

How about it Horde, What are your semi-obscure movie recommendations?


Strange Comic Book Villains

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you Codpiece:

Codpiece.jpg


Featured in Doom Patrol #70, Codpiece was traumatized in high school when he asked a girl out and she said he wasn't “big enough”. She was talking about his height, but he thought she was referring to the size of his willie. He becomes a brilliant engineer and turns to a life of crime after building a bulletproof super suit that features, er, certain codpiece-related weapons like a giant blaster, a drill and a boxing glove on a spring. He is defeated after Coagula, a transgender prostitute, uses her (His? I dunno which was s/he was going) powers to melt his cannon penis. And that was that.


80s Tributes On TV

First up is one of my favorite Simpson's couch gags. You'll have to watch it multiple times to catch all of the Easter eggs in the background:

The VHS tracking snow on the bottom of the screen is priceless.

Next up, from How I Met Your Mother, is Robin Sparkles' video for “Let's Go To The Mall”:

Technically a 90s tribute (because the 80s didn't get to Canada until 1993), it's every 80s MTV video wrapped into one. Both of these clips gently poke fun at the tropes of the greatest decade in mankind's history.


Remember When We Did Great Things In This Country?

This here is why there aren't more people screaming bloody murder over all the crazy economic shit that's going down. As long as the money printers go BRRRT and people are either getting paid to file TPS reports at their corporate job or getting paid slightly less to do nothing at all (unemployment bonuses), most don't have much reason to care. Of course, eventually the money printers have to stop going BRRRT and that's when things get interesting.

71 The burger needs nothing more than Real American Cheese (not the lower grade "Cheese Product" or "Cheese Food", which are abominations), and Kroger's "MAYO" brand mayonnaise.

The green, leafy portion of a head of Iceberg Lettuce and a slice of fresh, cold tomato, right outta the fridge. (The throwaway part of Iceberg Lettuce is "most of it", especially the white/nearly clear, waterlogged parts from whence it draws it's name). But the green & leafy parts are actually, worthy.

Pro-Tip. Try the Oroweat "Crustini" variety hamburger bun. It is sublime in it's properly toasted glory.

She made a cameo in the 400s the last thread IIRC, said it felt like someone else was in her back meaning the incision pain is burning through the meds which sucks.

Of course having had experience with LOTS of surgeries over the years and rather enjoying the healing experience it also means her wounds are knitting most likely properly.

I was unemployed for most of 2020 and have been getting reduced payouts since they used 2019 tax data to decide who's rich and who's not. I didn't really need it since I was stockpiling cash for a while, but it's a perfect illustration of why government solutions aren't very effective: those actually directly and significantly impacted by the mayhem get less than the Non Essentials (tm) who merely had to suffer the indignity of being able to work remotely.

203 Doom Patrol in its original form took advantage of the stranger aspects of the DC universe. They tried to reboot it post-Crisis but it didn’t make any sense as a “normal” superhero team. So they brought in a then-great writer, Grant Morrison, to take it out of boring post-Crisis DC and make it weird again.

His run ran from reboot issues 19 through 63, with a strange but comprehensible storyline involving weird philosophy, weird dimensions, weird characters, and pretty much took the DC weirdness pre-Crisis and ramped it so far past eleven DC had no idea how to keep the money flowing when he finished his story and left the series.

So they brought in someone else, told them to be weird, and didn’t worry about crap like plot, characterization, and making sense. They probably still don’t understand why sales tanked. That’s when Codpiece came in.

237 I did some shopping and errands today. Mask mandate in AZ ended a week ago. Stopped by a taco joint to get lunch. Signs, "Mask Required to Enter". Well, fuck you, Charlie. Drove to In and Out. Parked, observed non-masked people exiting door. No hectoring signs. Good to go. Went in, ordered, waited, got burger, and left. Staff were masked, also many customers. But no nagging or dirty looks. As it should be.

Went to WalMart, across the street. Still "requiring" masks, but they are lax on enforcing it. One of the mask Nazis made some remark as I went in, and I just carried on walking. A fair number of unmasked customers, too.

Harbor Freight was all about wearing masks, so I drove past, did not enter. Got what I needed at Shoppers' Supply, which has taken down all their mask signage.

Vegas is booming from the stimulus money, too. A lot of people are taking their $1400 checks and blowing it there.

You might think this is good. It's not. All this is setting up the conditions for too much money chasing too few goods, as Milton Friedman put it. Another fun fact, at this point, about 27% of all consumer income comes from govt. Transfer payments, stimulus, etc, etc.

290 I don't get the "free" government money. It's OK, my job wasn't affected at all except working from home since last March. Pretty sweet - I roll out of bed 10 minutes or so before "work time" and sit around in pajamas / sweats all day.

Burger toppings: if sauces don't count then cheese, bacon, lettuce & tomato, then mayo, ketchup and mustard of course. If they DO count that's different: sautéed mushrooms and onions, blue cheese and mayo.

Learned an interesting fact today about the term "white elephant" (as in white elephant sale). Apparently, wealthy potentates would give rare albino elephants as gifts to people they didn't like. Such a gift could hardly be refused, but the cost of keeping the elephant would drive the people into poverty.

When the mask madness starts hitting the small businesses in the bottom line, they will have to drop it. The chains, like HF, and WM, are probably waiting on authorization from head office. One enough States drop the mandate, the chain head offices will probably tell their locals to drop the mask requirement, or to just look the other way when it is flouted.

332 I’m a fan of Kurt Russell’s Soldier, too, which few people seem to have heard of and fewer liked. It has a very tight focus, knows what it wants to do and does it. Very much an anti-Seven Samurai and its successors. He refuses to train the colonists against the invaders not because this would be impossible in the ten minutes or so before the invasion comes, but because “Soldiers deserve soldiers, sir.”

But one soldier, against seventeen. What are you going to do?

I’m going to kill them all, sir.

Got a lot of family here. Trouble is convincing my bride. We lived here after I left the Army. She never liked it. I got her to agree to a locale in Wyoming. Hell, my childhood was split between here and Cody WY. Got me some roots here.

When Dad passes, Mom wants to stay here. That kind of surprised me, since her roots are in WA state. Still, they've been here for over 55 years. So I get it.

409 When the mask madness starts hitting the small businesses in the bottom line, they will have to drop it. The chains, like HF, and WM, are probably waiting on authorization from head office. One enough States drop the mandate, the chain head offices will probably tell their locals to drop the mask requirement, or to just look the other way when it is flouted.
Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at April 01, 2021 09:51 PM (mzC7

Walmart tried to do a mask mandate here before the Governor even tried. The place was empty other than people picking up their prescriptions. Now, with the governor's mandate they have two people at the door trying to get people to put them on. Oddly enough my county has always been near the lowest rate of infection and we lack in masking and taking the vaccine.

Same here, I filed in late Feb. Today I got a letter saying that they need another 6 weeks to verify income/withholding/credits.

A sign that it's time to look for a new job is when the bosses wait to the last moment to pay the bills and deliver the paychecks. I take this "delay" in the same vein.

"The American Success Company." It took place in Germany and sounds a bit like Fargo, except that I believe it was played for super-dark comedy. Also known as "Success."

So it is like this, it overcomes a horrible performance by Rianna Gosling or whatever its name is. James Garner God rest his moonbat soul could act his ass off. Yes the lesson is dumb, yes the wrong guy "won" the courtship but at the end of the day that is how life works out.

Wife Olafson and sven did not fall in love and start dating in 1984. Sven was already a drunk and a hellion and wife was a good girl, Sven had fallen in love with a girl crying because a guy that wound up being a glee ganger had broken her heart and Sven had never seen someone cry with their whole body like that.

Wife dated several other guys, and Sven drifted and fell deeper and deeper into addiction, work, and relationships of his own but he always kept an eye on wife to be. When an asshole broke wife to be's heart his sophomore year and her freshman year and the guy came into sven's ROTC classroom they were in together sven beat him to a pulp almost getting expelled.

Sobering up over the next year to get ready for the Army wife to be finally met sven and they became friends.

Wife's mom was less than thrilled.

491 The 1980 version of All Quiet on the Western Front was only watchable because Ernest Borgnine was in it.

It was supposed to be depressing. It was about the wholesale slaughter of millions of human beings for no fucking reason at all.

It was even more depressing because of who played the main protagonist. John Boy Walton is an insufferably shitty actor and I couldn't wait until the last scene.

Her folks are dead, I miss them. It took her dad explaining to her mom that I would always find work and he knew concretely that I would always do what I could to protect her that broke through. Love is a dynamic random thing.

He did it originally in French (I believe), then did a remake of it in English. Got wildly mixed reviews.

I enjoyed his flick Cache as well, about a family that keeps getting weird disturbing drawings, and eavesdropping/surveillance videos of themselves, dropped through the mail slot.

The same guy I referenced who set the bombing scene in The Day After to "Yakety Sax" (by the way, he absolutely got off on that movie) hit an air show with me and we went to the B-52 on display, and both of us were drooling. Dude went to the bomb bay and put on the air of a tour guide, and said, pointing at the interior of the bomb bay, "And, ladies and gentlemen, this is where Slim Pickens jumped on the bomb - " The plane's crew cut him off. "You know, when that movie was made, most of the B-52s systems were classified..." A huge discussion of Dr. Strangelove ensued. Good times.

Bezos may indeed become the world's first trillionaire.

I was looking. Comparing wealth over history is extremely difficult, likely impossible, because what we value changes and all that. But the comparisons are fairly meaningful over the last couple centuries or so.

I think it was John. D. Rockefeller who holds the title of richest ever at $400B in today's dollars.

So Bezos isn't there yet, but he's halfway.

I am sorry to hear it, and I hope things work out.

I fear if the "great reset" hits over the next 18-24 months that one of the early casualties will be the rural hospital system.

The biggest example of the "perpetual motion machine" nature of the American economy is the medical field no offense to any that do the hard work there.

639 Sven, messy Jesse (hubby) and I lived in Santa Teresa, NM just outside of Hell Paso for many years, and would also drive up to Cloudcroft to see trees when we lived there.

I agree on his early novels - The Stand is still in my top three novels of all time - but Mr. King must be read in moderation. He lacks artistic restraint and never knows when to "close the sale" and move on. Mr. King being a dickhead and barking moonbat exacerbates matters.

I think my courting her saved my soul in a way.

I was a pretty wild hard kid, but by the end of that sophomore year I looked at the nerds in our school and saw a group of people who were emotionally beaten up and did not feel appreciated. They had that glee ganger to be sitting court at the head of their table and he spent all his time slagging on these high achieving kids. Most of them were in the band so wife was there orbiting these future PhDs and High Level Engineers.

I started sitting with them, I was after all an honors history and econ student and finally I snapped at the glee ganger and told him to go f8ck himself and hang at the school nurse's or I would send him there. Over time I kind of became a battery for them, and we took to helping each other with the classes we were gifted in where others' were weak. I flirted with wife to be, and made her friends there laugh.

I learned a lot of leadership at that table, whereas prior to that I was just a gifted a*8hole.

Well, first of all, it's a John Cusack vehicle from the 90s. I mean, seriously, how much more do you need to know here? Secondly, the central plot is all about how his character is rekindling romance with his high school sweetheart and all the lovey-dovey bullshit that comes with that. And, yes, the Cusack character happens to be a hitman doing hitman stuff throughout but as noted when flagrantly trolling convincing the special lady that this is totally just like High Fidelity that particular bit of information does not necessarily have to be advertised.

Third was to fuse, I think, three vertebrae. I pray there isn't a continuation of the fusion thing, but they said he has issues so I don't know. He is doing OK day to day, not in too much pain, but some days are good and then he does things he shouldn't and there are bad days.

714 Reply to 694 ... - if you owed $1,000 in taxes and expect to owe that much in the next year you should file estimated tax payments. Or change your withholding amounts, if you are receiving W-2 or 1099 payments on which you can do withholding. You can also have withholding on Social Security or Railroad Retirement payments.
But always only pay the minimum required amount. Otherwise it's a loan to the government.

Now, funny thing was J. P. Morgan. When he died, his personal wealth was only would be only about $40B in today's dollars. Rockefeller famously quipped, hell, he owned us all, but he was poor or something like that.

Morgan did control far more money that Rockefeller. Far more. He controlled trillions in today's dollars. He famously bailed out the US Treasury one time.

He did through basically banking and having his people on boards of all the major players the world over. Thus while he didn't personally own a lot, he controlled a hell of a lot of money.

719 Vegas is booming from the stimulus money, too. A lot of people are taking their $1400 checks and blowing it there.



You might think this is good. It's not. All this is setting up
the conditions for too much money chasing too few goods, as Milton
Friedman put it. Another fun fact, at this point, about 27% of all
consumer income comes from govt. Transfer payments, stimulus, etc, etc.

Most of my $3200 in stimulus money has gone to pay off credit cards (less $100 for a saucier - not to be confused with a bustier - and $600 to the dentist). Is this better or worse for the economy than dildos and Vegas?

I had to sit thru the "extremism stand down" training too recently (DoD civilian here).

The Notebook was enjoyable. Mrs Doof and I recently watched a whole slew of films that were based on Nicholas Sparks books. Mostly enjoyable. Predictable and lots of recurring themes (set in North or South Carolina, someone dies, there's ALWAYS a rain storm). There's usually decent music in those films.

My neurosurgeon wants me to have the surgery ASAP but I want to go on a tough weight loss regimen for six months first, and see if that helps my arm. My own primary care physician today told me, that would probably be a good idea.

In the meantime I'm gonna see another neurosurgeon for a second opinion, and look into non-surgical options as well. I believe there's a steroidal epidural that can also help me regain strength, but not sure.

826 >> Deflation is about the worst thing for an economy outside of Zimbabwe style hyperinflation.

That is the current thinking and theory. But I don't know about that. The current theory holds that stability demands some small inflation rate, your sweet spot.

Evidence for this is the "free banking era" of the 19th Century when the currency was tied to gold. Long term, you had about zero inflation, but short term you had wild swings. Booms with high inflation, followed by crashes with ripping deflation.

The money supply must expand with the economy (which depends on population and such). A country will 300 million people needs more money in circulation than a country with only 30 million.

Now, note that pegging a currency to gold limits the money creation (which can be a very bad thing), but it limits things greatly when their is a crisis of liquidity.

Now, pegging a currency to gold (or whatever) is very different from pure fiat with a target inflation rate of zero.

Current thinking is that if you targeted zero inflation with monetary policy, you get that wild instability of the 19th century. But the difference between pure fiat and gold is great.

There are many, and I've read 'em, who believe you can target zero inflation with perfect stability, and even allow small deflation with it.

The "money power" as they used to call it, is one of the greatest powers of sovereign governments. They will never relinquish it, and allow it become something outside of their control.

The money power is basically the power to define and control what is used for money and control its creation and destruction. That will never be given up.

854 I have a part-time job with the Philadelphia baseball team. Game-day bouncer. Today was our first game with fans since 2019, under Wolf's limited capacity rules. The team's operations department (or, most likely, the team's lawyers) have come up with a stack of COVID rules...mandatory masks, except when eating or drinking, no bags at all allowed in (medical and baby-care bags excluded), blocked-off sections, 6-ft distancing stickers all over the concourse. Constant reminders on the scoreboard. Even the Phillie Phanatic had to wear a mask. We'll show those heathens in the Red states how to comply!

Well ,as the game went on, it was clear that just about every rule was being ignored. Especially the legendary Philly drunks....they figured out that they could keep their masks down as long as they held on to a beer can.

868 So for any of y'all who wondered what happened to me today (last night I was worried about getting fired over refusing to use someone's "preferred pronouns")...

I had a one-on-one meeting today with the big boss. Got another good tongue-lashing, but:

1. He said they understood my objections, and would accommodate me in the future, HOWEVER

2. Since I did break the rules (which I never denied and actually forthrightly acknowledged), he still had to punish me.

So I'm suspended a week without pay, and I have a letter placed in my file. Which I told them I thought was fair. I'll get an extra week to spend with my wife before her mastectomy, and if anyone ever asks about the letter in my file I will absolutely not be ashamed to tell them everything.

It wasn't pleasant, but I think it turned out OK. I'll offer some more thoughts in a subsequent comment.

In other news, something really different, MILF porn star Lisa Ann (who "portrayed" Sara Palin in some "movies" about the AK governor) apparently beat some kid up at a strip club.

She was on stage at some strip club, and this drunken kid starts heckling her, calling her "grandma" among other insults. She jumps off the stage, completely nekkid, save for some thigh-high boots, and starts hitting him. She was about to smash a bottle over his head before the bouncers restrained her.

882 I think the biggest takeaway I had from my experience this week is to never forget that the real world isn't necessarily like the f*cked-up hothouse of the internet. (At least not yet.) I was prepared for my superiors to come down on me like a ton of bricks, the way you always read about in viral clickbait pieces. And while my superiors WERE plenty pissed off at me (again: because I wouldn't call a dude in a dress a chick), they were also willing to see my side of things.

I think it's a few things: First, I live and work in an extremely red area of the country, so I think the bosses are sensitive to local mores. (It was mentioned to me that I was far from the first employee who'd been in this situation).

Second: I think age played a role. I'm 45, and even though my bosses are all far to the left of me, they're also all older than me, some by a lot. So they're probably a lot less tuned into the latest woke nonsense. One even made a non-PC joke about "sensitivity training."

So I guess my message is that all is not lost...YET. The world outside the internet is messed up, sure, but not nearly as far gone.

But God help us when the younger Red Guards take over...

Congratulations in the short term, but mid-term, they've (perfectly) teed you up for a Progressive Discipline Discharge. You have to document even the toilet paper you use to flush in their restroom, from now on. BEG for re-assignment from writing gigs that would require you to repeat the "offense" of not telling lies, again. Or, work like HELL on your Creative Writing Skills, so as to tell those lies in the form of a Babylon Bee article.

They couldn't touch you THIS TIME. They've now maneuvered things where you're not the "target holder", but rather, The Target. Hint: The Execs consulted with H.R. as to just exactly HOW to squeeze you into that Progressive Discipline Box. This IS when you retain a competent Employment Law Attorney.

It is said that Isadora Duncan did the same for at least three of her Borzois, all of whom perished when the scarves got tangled in a carousel at a fair, a large electric fan, and the wheels of the car in which they were traveling, respectively.

She, of course, failed to heed the Lord's many warnings regarding too ling scarves ...

OK, I get it. I think Publius wants me to wear a fascinator to our wedding ceremony. It may take a few more months to iron this out.Meanwhile, a Moron Castle would be a good idea.

I don't want any money from people, I just want them to have a good time.

For the record, a fascinator is a piece of womyn's headwear. A sort of preposterous piece of pate adornment. It is not a hat, but something that said womyns pin (or attach with a band)to their head. It derives from "to fascinate", something womyns put on their haids to fascinate the myns.

British royal and aristocrat womyns wear them, as well as 'Murican womyn's at things like the Kentucky Derby.

At William and Kate's wedding, fascinators became a meme, when Prince Andrew's (the banger of underage Epstein girls) daughters, known as Tweedledee and Tweedledum wore some ridiculous ones, which prompted memes such as "Fascinators on stun!"

There are so many great songs in the past forty years that I never heard. Until recently, I never came across the Stephen Bishop version of 'Separate Lives' (which he wrote) performed on acoustic guitar. You can actually hear the pain in his voice as he sings
♪ Some day I might find myself looking in your eyes,
but for now, we'll go on living separate lives ♪
about the end of a relationship. The version most have heard was by Phil Collins for the movie "White Nights" which was much faster tempo. In later concert versions, Phil slowed it down closer to the way Stephen Bishop recorded it.

I remember a Top Gear episode where Jeremy in some fast car races the other 2 from England to Italy.
All is well for the train guys until they have to stop in towns to switch engines or in smaller towns to pick up passengers.

The best way for high speed rail is to have a train that goes from one large area to another large area...Maybe up in the air and not connected to the land...somehow.

1092 Dana Loesch refereed to it as a "Chick Flick", if so my kind of "Chick Flick"."Death Proof" with Kurt Russell as the bad guy.

I always loved "Payback" with Mel Gibson. Do Not get the "Director's Cut" version. It blows big time. A 1st time director who idolized Sam Pickinpah, and tried to make this movie similar to "The Wild Bunch". Epic Fail. Since Gibson was Executive Producer or something. When looking at the cut decided to fire the slub, and re-cut it. So it wasn't so dark, and make funny (in a dark way). Porter becoming the bad guy (Anti-hero) that you see from time to time in movies. The book it was biased on, "The Hunter" by Richard Stark (pen name). Wrote this back in the 50's I believe. The publisher came back to him and told him to rewrite the ending, so he get's away with it. It spawned a whole series. I have some on my Nook, but never got at around to reading them. I did recently just stumbled on them, and I reading them now...kind of. Lee Marvin stared in a movie biased on the same book in the 60's. Very different.

Right after 9/11 I had to make several trips to DC for work. Usually a shuttle from Boston to Reagan was about 4-hours all in, including getting to/from the airport, security, etc. Because they weren't running I took Acela - 8-hours, but overall not a horrible experience. Clean, quiet.

Next month the Acela was booked so I had to take a "regular" train. Some of the longest 12+ hours of my life. Loud, smelly, cramped, with all the "service" you've come to expect of quasi-public operations.

And that's Choo-Choo Joe's "vision" for our travel futures. Making what used to be a 8-10 hour end-to-end coast-to-coast flight into a 4+ day ordeal.

1137 The GOP is getting a substantial cut. They always do.

They thrive in the CONgressional minority - 80% of the graft for precisely none of the work. As Frank said: Nice Work If You Can Get It

1138 My great great great grandfather was murdered by Union raiders in Alabama at the end of the war. He was tortured in attempt to find out where he hid his gold. It was never found and the story lives on around Enterprise and the Pea River.

Don't you think that's limited to the MLB?

1143 As long as the GOP stays in the minority they continue to grift, but take none of the heat for shit when it goes sideways.

Cowards. All of them.

1144 A snip from Ashli's husband:

We know OUR Ashli. Our Ashli that wanted nothing but to help people at their worst, and make the world a better place for everybody.
A Combat Veteran, true American, a true Patriot, murdered and taken from the world far too soon.

A simple ''thank you'' doesn't begin to describe our gratitude, but it'll have to suffice for the moment as we begin our long trek of bringing justice for our beautiful, magnanimous, larger than life Ashli.

Much love and peace,

Aaron Babbitt

1145 The shooter he says was a foreign national working for the government, black guy and on social media a BLM supporter as well as being present when the congressional baseball game was shot up.

Putting a man on second in extra innings? Have no idea. Might be a good idea in T Ball

Yeah if I ever decide that it is time to really speak truth to power to the FBI across the desk, their amazing inability to class the attempted murder of the GOP softball team or the Pulse nightclub motive will come up.

By the end of my interrogation they will be paying me not to talk.

1153 Putting a man without earning it on second isn't any worse than a hockey shoot out. If you don't want to play the game until it's final rule just flip a coin, its even faster.

1154 That took a set for Aaron Babbit to put out that statement. In addition to carrying the grief of losing his wife, he has placed himself under higher scrutiny from a number of the alphabets. A cop on trial for George Floyd's overdose and an assassin walking the halls of the Capitol, guilty as sin and free as a bird. 2021.

1155 Malls are sad places today, mostly empty or behind security fencing and bars. Hamburger? Mustard, ketchup onions and Chow Chow.

1157 My answer to "What Obscure Movie Should I Watch?" is always the same: Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead (1995).

With Andy Garcia, Christopher Walken, Christopher Lloyd, Jack Warden, Steve Buscemi, Fairuza Balk, and Gabrielle Anwar in it, one would think it'd have gotten more attention. But it's almost certainly the best movie you've probably never seen.

1158 Obscure movie: Uforia starring Cindy Williams, Fred Ward and Harry Dean Stanton as Brother Bud. Probably only available on VHS. Involves UFOs, Waylon Jennings and tent show evangelism. Cindy Williams should have gotten an Oscar.
