2 Good Morning Morons today is Saturday May 1, 2021. On this day in 1807 the Slave Trade Act of 1807 took effect, abolishing the slave trade within the British Empire. It was also abolished in the US in 1807.

7 BiteMe's speech undercut justification for passing the back breaking "Green New Deal".


This is what he said, according to a New York Times transcript of the president's remarks: "The United States accounts, as all of you know, for less than 15 percent of carbon emissions. The rest of the world accounts for 85 percent. That's why I kept my commitment to rejoin the Paris Accord, because if we do everything perfectly, it's not going to matter."

15 Minneapolis courts are finally getting serious about the rioters in Minneapolis.

A Brainerd man has been sentenced to 48 months in prison and must pay $12 million in restitution for his role in the arson at the Minneapolis Police Department's 3rd Precinct building last May.

What are the odds he will pay that $12M fine?

65 Four? times in the 1800's the House decided disputed elections.

This time though the Senate usurped that power to install Josef Stolin. So it was a junta with a twist....the Senate ...War Turtle? Pence? ....disliking Trump with a burning passion ....figured a way to 'kill' him. And they got it done with a tactical war run at the precinct level by Democrats.

The applications can't be made until 12:00pm Monday. First come, first served. You have to use the special form at the SBA website.

After more than a year of this foolishness I am not about to put on a mask to hike outside away from everyone else. This has caused a riff between me and people that I considered to be reasonably intelligent and I will never look at them the same way again. They probably feel the same way about me so f' em.

That doesn't improve my odds much, if at all. If I see one other person not wearing a mask when I'm out & about, I'm always surprised. It makes me realize how much I stand out in the crowd without a mask (& hence a "target")

Mayhaps I should start masking up as part of my "grey man" protocols

106 Newsmax caved to left-wing pressure by reversing all stories covering fraud in the 2020 election. Early Friday, the media outlet posted a statement to clarify its coverage of Dominion voting machines and the ongoing fraud investigation.

In a statement, Newsmax admitted that while they did report and in doing so supported arguments and evidence brought forth by President Trump, among others, they themselves found no evidence of fraud.

Sigh

The Alaska owner of a boutique hotel in Homer said federal agents searched her home this week, after having mistaken her for another woman in an effort to recover Nancy Pelosis stolen laptop.

The House speakers computer was reportedly pilfered during the deadly breach of the U.S. Capitol in January.

Marilyn Hueper, who with her husband owns the Homer Inn & Spa in Homer, Alaska, said federal agents broke down the door of their home and confiscated laptop computers and a cellphone and handcuffed them and their guests during the search, according to the Anchorage Daily News.

Companies and CDL drivers had to register in the Clearinghouse by January 2020. Well everyone waited until January 2020. They finally said it crashed by March 2020. The Clearinghouse is another part of Big Brother's watchful eye on CDL drivers that don't pass a drug/alcohol random or required test. The purpose is so employers do not have to do employee verifications anymore also helpful when accidents occur. Not saying I don't agree the program but, I will be glad when I don't have to do employee verifications anymore.

Hubby NEC stuck it out for the 13 1/2 hours it took to shuttle our worldly goods up our 450' driveway to the 53' tractor trailer. Last load went out at 11:20pm. He drove our John Deere Gator up the road to the moving van in a cold rain and in the dark on a busy country road. He's now sick. Who could have guessed that would happen.
GM of moving company called me yesterday to ask how he could make things better. Well maybe you should have listened to your packing/moving crew who told you it was a 3 day job not 2. Making things better, that ship has sailed. I expect a reduction on my bill.

191 Morning peeps. More pool prep today. No, it's not warm enough to take a dip but it takes the Mrs. and I several days to clean it up, get the water stabilized and move the stairs in place.

BTW - any Morons who have a pool; my understanding is there's a significant shortage of Chlorine this summer. Prices here in Kentucky have doubled. It's being blamed on a fire at a chemical plant and demand. All those new pools put in 'cuz COVID.

199 Haha. Nah, it's just the idiocy of FedEx. I swear, they live to keep you on your toes. Not the worst experience we've had with them.

Just had a fight with them over a stupid tile sample - the driver refused to deliver to our business and the CS claimed the package had never been on the truck. We have video of this guy at the building, package in hand, turning around before reaching our gate. Because, he had been by the day before and the gate was locked then (on the one day when we were unmanned for five minutes!). Didn't leave a door hanger, since, why bother?
Complained on Day Two. Third day? He drove by without stopping. On camera. Tracking said package was out for delivery. Same driver.

The CS said WE were lying and refused to do anything. Sent in a complaint with screenshots and had the package routed to a nearby FedEx store. Took a frickin week to get a stupid tile. I don't expect that to happen with my bass, hopefully.

Really wish senders would let you pick shipping companies.

289 Raising taxes is old and busted. The new hotness is to just type some new numbers into a keyboard and make it so the government now has twice (or 10x, or 50x, or 1000x) the number of dollars it had before you started typing.

That way no Congresscritter has to "vote for new taxes", which tends to piss off the rubes. Instead, the rube's carefully-saved dollars now buy 1/2, or 1/10, or 1/50, or 1/1000 of the goods and services they previously did, and you can just blame "inflation", as if it were an unavoidable force of nature.

Sweet gig!

290 She has declared that gunpoint-enforced lockdowns will not end until up to 70% of the states adults surrender to being injected with a deadly depopulation bioweapon called a covid vaccine.

Apparently the tyrannical cowards have learned a lesson from drill sergeants - and then fucked it up to make it evil.

The drill sergeant would declare a certain performance goal and if the whole unit didn't achieve this goal, then the whole unit will be required to do something distasteful, but the odds of having to do it and it needing to be done were both very high.

Evil today: Impose some sort of arbitrary restriction, or in this case a humiliating, damaging and harmful condition, then demand a performance from the whole population.

The goal in both cases is to sit back and let those who are under this command to fight it out among themselves. In this case the team-building exercise should best result in a mutiny.

Right. Considering how many people seem to think it's a "good deal" for the government to put $7,000 on your credit card, hand out $5,800 to their cronies, then give you a check for $1,200 of it...
