The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

There is always some madness in love. But there is also always some reason in madness. Friedrich Nietzsche


Quote II

Peace is not absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means. Ronald Reagan

Quote III

The reason we all like to think so well of others is that we are all afraid for ourselves. The basis of optimism is sheer terror.Oscar Wilde


Quote IV

“The dystopian future of science fiction is now. It’s horrifying that Amazon is asking people to sell their bodies, but it’s even worse that people are doing it for such a low price,” Albert Fox Cahn, the executive director of the New York-based Surveillance Technology Oversight Project


Quote V

“It makes me very sad and gives me huge anxiety with going out in public wearing anything hot,”Influencer Mikaela Testa

This is what Fascism looks like. The unelected bureaucrats of the CDC say you can't evict tenants.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced Tuesday it will extend the federal eviction moratorium through October 3, 2021 after the ban lapsed over the weekend.

The announcement comes after pressure from House Democrats including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Rep. Maxine Waters, D-Calif., and Rep. Cori Bush, D-Mo. The White House previously said Biden did not have the authority extend the ban, given a June Supreme Court ruling that said only Congress can enact a such a ban. Congressional Democrats did not appear to have enough votes to do so, and the House is currently in recess.

Now, the CDC will instead issue a ban in counties “experiencing substantial and high levels of community transmission levels” of in Covid-19, which will cover an estimated 90% of renters, according to Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y.

Finally, NPR takes the mask off. Journalists will be allowed to engage in political activism.

Taxpayers are raising renewed calls to defund NPR after the public broadcaster announced that journalists can now openly advocate for a litany of hot-button political topics.

Last month, National Public Radio loosened its ethics policy, which long prevented correspondents from taking a public position on “controversial” or “polarizing” issues, or participating in politically themed demonstrations. NPR Public Editor Kelly McBride announced on July 29:

I can't speak for you. But, I'm enjoying the Fail!

Gwen Berry, a U.S. Olympic hammer thrower who turned away from the American flag during the playing of the national anthem, failed to medal during finals on Tuesday.

According to the New York Post, Berry finished in eleventh place out of twelve competitors, registering a distance of 71.35 meters.

Shoved into the latest "Infrastructure Bill" was this little tidbit: the bill will mandate all new vehicles must have the technology to detect drunk drivers and alert systems to check backseats before turning off the vehicle.


Debbie Dingell, a Michigan Democrat, released a statement that read: "We can't wait any longer to make our roads safer from drunk driving accidents." She went on to say, "The inclusion of my bill in the bipartisan infrastructure package will help incentivize the development and implementation of technology to stop drunk driving once and for all and save lives."

Another provision in the bill was to combat deaths of children accidentally left in hot cars called a "door logic" alert that reminds drivers to check the backseat when turning off the engine.

Janette Fennell, president of Kids and Car Safety, said more than 1,000 children had died in hot cars since 1990.

"The Senate version is only requesting a reminder system that does not detect anything," Fennell said. "It does not let you know if there is an actual child in the back seat.

As they say, "Hindsight is 20/20 vision." And that holds true with Frontier Airlines.

Passenger duct-taped to seat after ‘groping flight attendants’ breasts and punching a third’

In a statement, Frontier Airlines said the ‘passenger made inappropriate physical contact with a flight attendant and subsequently physically assaulted another flight attendant’. That resulted in him needing to be ‘restrained until the flight landed in Miami and law enforcement arrived’.

Frontier Airlines added that the flight attendants were relieved of flying amid an investigation.

But in a later statement, the airline said that ‘the proper policies for restraining a passenger were not followed’ and ‘the flight attendants involved have been suspended pending further investigation’.

Drunk and combative at 35,000 feet, what the hell were they supposed to do, throw him out of the GD plane?

Way back when, The ONT covered the story of Dan Price Co-Founder and CEO of Gravity Payments.He decided to cut his salary and give higher wages to his staff. How did that turn out? Not what you were expecting I bet.

Dan Price is the Co-Founder and CEO of Gravity Payments, a credit card processing and financial services company. In 2015, the company made headlines all over the world when Price announced that his employees would receive a minimum salary of $70,000.

To finance this move, Dan cut his own $1.1M pay by 90%. At the time, this decision received a lot of criticism but 6 years later, the company is thriving and Price said it has made him happier and a better boss.

Good on them all.

Hell hath no fury as a woman contractor scorned. I've dealt with some crazy contractors. Glad I never ran into him.

A contractor who didn’t receive the payment he was promised rented an excavator and destroyed the façade of an apartment building he himself built.

Tenants were supposed to move into a newly completed apartment building in Blumberg, a small town in Germany’s Baden-Wurttemberg, in the next couple of weeks, but a bizarre incident has delayed their plans by at least three months. Late last month, a man operating an excavator showed up at the building and began meticulously tearing down the façade, breaking glass windows and destroying balconies, ultimately leaving the place looking like it had been in a war. Stranger still was that the man responsible for the devastation was allegedly the contractor who had been responsible for building the edifice in the first place.

I think most of us here enjoy a good hot dog. No this isn't the ketchup vs. mustard fight. Best hot dogs in every state. (H/T Doof)

If the mere mention of the word "hot dog" makes your mouth water, you're in good company. According to Eric Mittenthal, president of the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, Americans eat approximately seven billion hot dogs just between Memorial Day and Labor Day.

Certain areas of the country are famous for their hot dogs. We all know that it would be a foodie crime to go to a place like Chicago or New York City and leave without eating at least one hot dog. But the truth is, every state has a food truck or restaurant that serves up a five-star hot dog. From the classic frankfurter to unique twists that take advantage of local ingredients (looking at you, Hawaii!), you can rest assured that no matter where you go in America, there's a place to satisfy your hankering for a hot dog.

Nope, not heading to Wisconsin Dells. Not going to do it.

While in college the theme was, "Quantity not quality." Well so much for that with Molson Coors.

Molson Coors Just Axed 11 Cheap Beers That You Probably Regret Drinking
The beverage company is veering toward hard seltzers and "premiumization" (sorry, Keystone Ice)

Pour one out for the terrible cheap beer you drank in college, because 11 of those brands will soon be gone.

On a recent earnings call, Molson Coors CEO Gavin Hattersley announced nearly a dozen “economy” beer brands will be axed from its lineup. “This will improve supply chain flexibility for our more profitable priority brands, enhance our innovation efforts, enable us to better focus resources and ensure dependable and on-time shipments to our distributors,” he said during the call. “We’re going to invest bigger behind our fast growing global hard seltzer portfolio and we are going to permanently streamline a smaller portfolio of legacy brands.”

Sometimes I think I have a bad day at work. Then I think, perhaps my day wasn't so bad.


Feds free trucker accused of sneaking 2,270 pounds of pot into Detroit: 'I got justice'


After 16 days of professing his innocence in an American jail cell, a Canadian trucker accused of smuggling more than 2,270 pounds of "highly potent" pot into Detroit has been freed.

And the charges have been dropped.

Tasbir Singh, 32, of Windsor, Ontario, poses in this February 2021 photo with his son. He was freed from U.S. authorities on July 23, 2021 after serving 16 days in jail on marijuana charges that were dropped.
At issue was whether or not the trucker really knew he was hauling $3.2 million worth of marijuana across international lines.

The truck driver said he had no idea weed was in the truck, but rather believed he was transporting coil rings, as was written on all the paperwork. His lawyer, Detroit-based criminal defense attorney Ellen Michaels, investigated the case and says this is what really happened: Slick marijuana dealers hacked into a trucking company's computers, created a fake order for coil springs, and then filled the truck with marijuana instead.

Dealing with Feds, I'm surprised he wasn't imprisoned for life.

Just because you're cute doesn't mean that you aren't a problem.

Officials are closing some areas on the south shore of Lake Tahoe after some chipmunks tested positive for plague.

The Tahoe Daily Tribune reports that the Taylor Creek Visitor Center, Kiva Beach and their parking areas will be off limits through Friday.

During that time, the U.S. Forest Service will be conducting vector control treatments to those areas.

Born on this day: 3 Aug 1926
American singer Tony Bennett who had the 1955 UK No.1 single 'Stranger In Paradise' and the 1965 UK No.25 single 'I Left My Heart In San Francisco'. In 1998, Bennett made an unlikely but highly successful appearance on the final day of a mud-soaked Glastonbury Festival in the UK dressed in an immaculate suit and tie, his whole set on this occasion consisting of songs about the weather. Bennett and Amy Winehouse recorded the duet 'Body and Soul' in March 2011 - the final recording made by Winehouse before her death on July 23, 2011 at the age of 27. When the song charted on the Billboard Hot 100 it made Bennett, at age 85, the oldest living artist ever to chart on the Hot 100. via thisdayinmusic.com

A Chicago-born U.S. wrestler thanked God and expressed joy at representing the United States after becoming the first African-American woman to win gold in wrestling.

Tamyra Mensah-Stock received her gold medal Tuesday at the Tokyo Olympics after defeating Nigeria’s Blessing Oborududu 4-1 in the women’s freestyle 68kg finals, according to the Olympics’ organizers.

She is the second U.S. female in the history of the Olympics to win gold in wrestling, after Helen Louise Maroulis’ gold medal victory in the 53kg category in Rio 2016.

Surprise surprise, there doesn't seem to be very much out there in terms of cold hard metrics like case fatality rate to do much of a comparison, but plenty of hyperventilating op-ed using scary looking but largely meaningless and overspecific percentages trying to argue that it's either the most worstest thing ever or ain't no thang, depending on the ideological affiliation of the source. Fucking useless, but as usual it lets everyone shout "we're following the data!" without straying from their own predetermined path.

68 I've eaten the the "best hot dog" place in Tennessee.

They aren't bad, but I don't think they deserve that billing. Honestly, I'd rather eat a Sonic chili cheese coney.

The best hot dog I've had around here is at a gas station chain that makes their own bean-less chili/hot dog meat sauce.

The place in the article slathered their hit dog with mayo, which in my opinion was pretty disgusting.

Naturally, this included a couple of CDC info blasts featuring some fairly impressive rhetorical gymnastics attempting to persuade me that being vaccinated would both protect me from the delta variant while also not protecting me from it. Pick a side, guys: either it works, it doesn't work, or you don't actually know if it works. Because after 18 months of essentially everyone in with any sort of power spewing constant bullshit, exploiting the crisis for short term political gain, and changing course every couple of weeks, "just trust our executive summary, we're from the government and we're here to help" is simply not good enough.

Landlords are going bankrupt because they can't collect rent. When the rule finally expires there will be mass evictions because the renters won't have the money for the back rent. Banks pick up cheap foreclosed properties.

It used to be a bad thing for banks to own a bunch of foreclosed properties. Now it's becoming a good thing and that ain't good.

Unsympathetic managment defined. Bernard Montgomery took over command of 5th Corps after Dunkirk. In his words:

"I ordered that at every headquarters the whole staff, officers and men, would turn out on one afternoon each week and do a seven-mile run. This applied to everyone under forty, and there would be no exception; those who didn't want to run the whole course could walk and trot, but they must go round the whole course...

"I remember the case of a somewhat stout old colonel who went to the doctor and said that if he did the run it would kill him... I then said that if he was thinking of dying it would be better to do it now, as he could be replaced easily and smoothly; it is always a nuisance if officers die when the battle starts and things are inclined to be hectic. His state of health was clearly not very good, and I preferred him to do the run and die."

"I remember the case of a somewhat stout old colonel who went to the doctor and said that if he did the run it would kill him... I then said that if he was thinking of dying it would be better to do it now, as he could be replaced easily and smoothly; it is always a nuisance if officers die when the battle starts and things are inclined to be hectic. His state of health was clearly not very good, and I preferred him to do the run and die."

Good old Uncle Monty, ever the heart-warming inspirational leader. (I call him uncle because he has a great resemblance to my great-grandfather Montgomery, who was gainfully employed as a farmer and lock operator on the Ohio river.) To be fair, General Montgomery was desirous to clean out the deadwood that had accumulated between the wars. The sitzkrieg and the rapid retreat to the Channel had convinced him at least that the Army would have to toughen up and get ready to fight a long hard war. Colonel Blimps and muddling along wouldn't defeat the Wehrmacht.

Cute little girls who are doing their best individually and together and relatively honestly can cheer each other on, even when they're on different teams. the Commies and the Steelers were and are dirty stinking cheaters who cheat like the Really Rottens, and grinding them into the turf at every chance is appropriate.

....

I don't disrespect that perspective.

I was just taught different. Mine lesson was victory at all costs. If you saw a player struggling, you picked on him until you made him cry or quit. You exploited an opponents weakness to obtain victory.

And if you were the inferior player, then you used any tactic in your employ to make your opponent fail. So yes, sometimes I would trash talk a player if it threw them off their game. Foul them hard. Get them agitated. Talk about their mom. Whatever it took. But then again that's probably not true sportsmanship.

They can say it's unvaccinated people all they want, but it doesn't make it true. The "delta" variant --for which, afaik, there is no test to day what "variant" it is -- is worst in areas that have the highest rate of people who got the jabs.

The first Gundam SEED anime was a classic, with drama and action aplenty, and plenty of cool MS, and the Haro squad. The sequel was so bad it effectively killed the 'verse, although some side manga bravely soldiered on. Amazon's LOTR show isn't really LOTR related, it's set in the Second Age and focuses on Numenor. 'Cause the Woketards need their moral equivalence and freedom from narrative. *spits*

So the park and wildlife bureaucrats, who 've long been sworn to public denial of Bigfoot on pain of job security, have manufactured a "crisis" out of the whole cloth to get the sheeple out and away from the parks and general high timber. This gives the gubmint folks the chance to get the Bigfoot critters under control again.

384 Those of us who follow the Golden Rule are not accustomed to dealing
with those who do not. We are not wrong but we do need to change our
tune pronto, and start giving as good as we get.
Sorry - no idea how to italicize to denote a quote, but remember - the golden rule is do unto others as you would have them do unto you. That is often misconstrued as requiring you to be nice to everyone all the time. But that is actually a misreading of the rule. If you steal, lie, assault someone, etc. would you not expect or allow punishment on you for that act? If you would accept something done to you fairly in recognition of your violation of a social norm, it is not a violation of the golden rule to do the same to someone who violates that same norm. Short version - you have no obligation to be nice to cultural Marxists who want to kill you if you would not expect them to be nice to you if you were acting the same way toward them.

404 To further clarify, the golden rule doesn't require you to be polite to a known liar whom you catch in a lie, for example. You can call him out as a bullshitter and humiliate him. So long as you would accept the same treatment if you were caught in a lie, there is no violation of the golden rule.
The golden rule is not "be nice", it's "don't be a hypocrite."

When I was 3, we went camping in Estes Park, CO with my cousins. I was a picky eater, so I wandered off at supper and tried to feed my food to the closest wildlife. My dad turned from the campstove to see me holding still and screaming at the chipmunk firmly attached to my thumb. He rescued me (of course), and I became Little Chipmunk on all camping adventures. Fast forward to two years ago, while camping in Duluth my husband found a chipmunk puppet at a gift shop and named it Thumbiter. For some odd reason, it keeps appearing on the steering wheel and on the gearshift before I get into the car, with lots of giggles from the backseat.

423 No symptoms mean your body is fighting the infection .

*****

Not strictly true. No symptoms means you have successfully defeated the infection, don't have the infection, or are not yet fighting off the infection.
The four hallmarks of inflammation, which is the body's immune system in action are:
Rubor (redness)
Calor (heat)
Dolor (pain)
Tumor (swelling)

These symptoms mean the immune system is fighting off an infection.

We see the world as we are, not as it is.

It is a bit different in competitions that are on on one instead of performing for points. In gymnastics and track and field you are looking at each other for success and say good job during the competition, in sports that compete directly you are going for blood and afterwards you say good job.

511 When Nietzche said that God is dead, he was not celebrating, he was predicting horrors that mankind would visit on itself

....

Meh.

Nietzsche wasn't necessarily an adherent to the idea that mankind was inherently evil. He merely thought the driving force for mankind was the desire to influence and dominate the world around them.

He surmised that man could express his will to power more formidably by serving others rather than oppressing them, that oppression was a weaker expression of power over another than was benefiting those around them and indenting themselves to oneself.

He did propose that weaker men would express their will to power by placing guilt upon the strong for their accomplishments and status.

568 Well. I Have a fun around town driver 2001 VW Cabrio. I am now informed that the top of the column containing the front right strut is seriously rusted out from below. The metal is rusted and cracked, could give way, which would be unpleasant.

A couple of maybe solutions involving welding are under consideration.

Your thoughts?
Posted by: Humble Miklos, thanks in advance at August 03, 2021 11:39 PM (QzkSJ)

The Cabrio is the convertible version of the Golf or Rabbit, right?

Number one suggestion: before spending hard earned $$$ fixing rust in one area, go over car thoroughly to ensure there is no hidden structural rust in other areas. Look at the inside of the cowl, under the dash, maybe take the vent grille below the windshield out, and use a borescope-style cam to view inside. Pull up carpets; check where floor meets door pillars. Check jacking points, and the places where suspension loads are transferred to the unibody structure.

If all else is good, a welded repair is worth doing. If the tinworms have spread farther, it might become too extensive to fix for the money you are prepared to spend.

569 Interesting that Democrats have started building into their laws untouchable "czars" like Sebelius was, who can do anything and everything they want.

The trick is the czars who will use their power to do anything and everything are inherently going to be lefty big gov control freaks.

And if a righty sneaks by and does something untoward with the power, like granting people more freedom, the Left will just challenge it in court and get a Hawaiian judge to put a stop to it.

Mindnumbingly brilliant in the simplest most stupid way. It's basically what children would do if they wrote laws and controlled courts.

575 Oh, PCR tests "work". If used properly. Which I think would be as quick/cheap confirmation tests (below 30 cycles, I think) for seriously symptomatic people, who then would move on to antibody tests and treatment. At which point, the PCR results confirmed, they would be counted as a "case".

I believe I just described the procedure for all infectious diseases including influenza as it has been done until March 2020.

I've said all along, if we tested for influenza like we have tested for COVID, the numbers would blow your mind.

Posted by: Muldoon at August 03, 2021 11:57 PM (Xwt96)

580 Muldoon - I just started the earlier book by James Holland on Italy in WWII, "Italy's Sorrow", which he actually wrote before "Sicily 1943". It starts in May 1944, after most of the agony of Casino, and when the krauts were stepping back from trying to drive your dad into the sea at Anzio.

Same formula as the other book. Mix of 10,000-foot Big Strategy and leadership, with a cast of Everymen, German, Italian partisans, US and British soldiers, etc. Good approach to make a war history approachable and draw you through it.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it. Every thought of the Italian campaign brings to mind your father and his buddies, as well as Bob Dole, who was actually pretty f***ing funny in real life in the Senate.

582 That "Czar" stuff comes from the Ivy league schools. I know of at least one and that's Yale. Very common for groups to resort to electing someone who will control something or be in charge of others doing stuff is a "Czar".

I guess it comes from that old infiltration of the '30's because the place I found it in was an old cooperative house that was founded back then.

No Secretary or President or this or that in Charge. No it had to be some permutation of Caesar such as Meister, Commisar, Tsar, Czar. No Hauptmann's tho.

583 Well I know people (mostly lefty retards) that tell me that the "flu disappeared" last year and that proves that masks work.

I'm the type of person that will happily allow the other person to see something I don't, and be right. I consider it at all times because I want to learn. But these fucking people... they're not even worth arguing with. I don't even bother saying to them "well if masks work why did COVID spread so much" because I know their answer will be "because everyone didn't wear masks". And down the rabbit hole we go.

I didn't know about the PCR test that doesn't distinguish influenza from COVID a month ago but I sensed something like it was happening. As Judge Judy likes to say "if it doesn't make sense then it's probably not true". Those are words to live by.

Well, it depends upon where in that "column" (shock tower) the rust is. Because they intended to be strong points that carry the weight of the car, they are often two or three layers of stamped steel, joined by spot welds. There may be factory-made repair panels available, made by offshore suppliers, that offer a quick and mostly-certain way of making the repair.

Simply welding metal over the rusted spots might add a little strength, but the rust will continue to grow beneath the patch.

587 Of course the "death count" from C19 is also extremely suspect - but that, unlike the testing regime, is not new or unique to C19. Cause of death attribution when infectious disease is involved (or even often when it's not) has always been a bit complicated and arbitrary - which merely was a recognition of the limits of our understanding. Nothing sinister.

Having given up on the topic, and much else, many months back, I haven't kept up on anyone bird-dogging this key aspect, but I did notice that one big county in CA *halved* their C19 mortality count a few months ago. Didn't look into it, past the predictable/eye-roll-inducing/idiotic statement by the county health witch doctor that C19 "was still serious!!!" notwithstanding the massive revision in data. So I don't know how they scrubbed their numbers.

It's never the idea at fault with the left. It's always how it was done or presented. Never heard of a lefty dissing an idea. Always who was doing it and how they tried to get others involved.

They used to do that after every election when they lost. They'd all gather around and discuss how to change their messaging and approach to people. Never that the ideas they were touting were wrong and full of shit.

The Maltese farmer was harvesting or digging or something right up to the line of his aircraft revetment during an air raid. Forget what it was, but he helped the RAF guys with something when they motioned to him. Then, after the raid, back to hoe-ing or whatever.

You could ask the airheads how they explain the massive Danish RCT last year (which confirmed decades of research on masks), or even the CDC statement in an FOIA response stating they had no research confirmed efficacy of masks against influenza-like illnesses. Or just refer them to the CDC's own website for its May 2020 meta-study confirming lack of mask efficacy (reviewing research back to the late 1940s).

605 Muldoon, one X factor in Italy was, of course, the many GIs with fresh/recent Italian roots and connections. There's a great scene in the movie "Night of the Shooting Stars" (think that's it) where a Sherman and some infantry pull up to a village in Italy. Some tension. Then the hatch flies open, and the tank commander jumps out yelling, in Italian, to his relatives - the village was where his father was from. Something like that.

Such things actually did happen.

Paul and I spent a very enjoyable evening at one of the finer Italian homes here near Rome. A very beautiful garden is what prompted us to look the place over. An old gardener and his wife first showed us the place - and when we came back later we talked to the owner - a well educated lady, about 35, who spoke very good English - and her cousin - not bad looking, and 20, who spoke a "leetle" English. We just relaxed for a while - stretched out in big easy chairs - for the first time since we landed on the beachhead.

639 Debby, I'm happy to hear you are working it out to get to the TX MoMe!

For now I bask in the few hours a week being able to bike ride or take a walk, the occasional lunch with a friend between work and mom duty. It does help recharge my batteries!

640 Whoa-- lotta lightning n thunder! Not a single drop of rain. Wonder how many fires got started tonight.

MLii, I don't believe I'm handling it that well. We just had our 12th anniversary (not our first rodeos) and the couple of years before he got sick were... sub-optimal. Mostly I was caring for Dad, too, all that time. Dad didn't live with us, so took *more time* out of my days. Seemed like hubs resented it.

At any rate, I fully understand the 'here we go again and I'm just not into it' frame of mind! Another source of guilt. Ugh.

641 >>Seemed like hubs resented it.


I see that here. The angry, "just go to your mom's" comes out. My commitment to her is not his. I do get that. Still annoys me. He helped his sister take care of his mom during her last couple years and it made me see a better side of him.

That stress I get from his attitude wears thin

643 Big Brown mask update:
I was "allowed" to work all day yesterday w/o a mask.
End of day the center manager approached me and said "There's always one" I replied "Someone has to pee standing up."
He laughed and then said management is not sure how they are going to deal with those who refuse to mask up, yet.
Several drivers are also refusing to wear a mask.

It's especially disheartening that your husband *knows* how hard caregiving can be, but would still direct anger at you over it!

I was the only one on pre load that refused yesterday. Today I will see how many will follow my lead. I had 4 people catch me in the parking lot and asked how I "got away with not wearing a mask."

650 A local, very large healthcare organization here has given employees letters stating vaccnes will be required for continued employment. But they are giving a date in Nov. for compliance. As a conservative talk show host pointed out: if this is important, why the delay? The vaccine is easily available around here now. Are they bluffing? Are they really going to fire their nurses and drs and any support staff? Talk about possible nightmare scenarios

I've been staying far away from the jerb and cow-orkers the last few months, so only get bits of news.

Anyway, will fight it tooth and nail if I end up going back.
