The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish; Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. Thomas Moore

Quote II


"Bureaucrats will obviously exploit this clause to ensure that Democrat-friendly outlets receive this present while conservative outlets are excluded. Anyone who believes this program will be administered in a politically neutral way should have his head examined." Rep. Devin Nunes (R., Calif.)

Quote III

“I’m very disappointed that Secretary Austin declined our request to testify today. A full accounting of the U.S. response o this crisis is not complete without the Pentagon, especially when it comes to the complete collapse of the U.S.-trained and funded Afghan military. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ)

Disappointed? Oh my.

Quote IV

“Today’s charges describe a long-standing, ruthless pattern by the administration of the Colombo crime family, its captains, members and associates, of conspiring to exert control over the management of a labor union by threatening to inflict bodily harm on one of its senior officials and devising a scheme to divert and launder vendor contract funds from its health care benefit program,” Acting U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York Jacquelyn M. Kasulis

Psychologists Are Learning What Religion Has Known for Years - Social scientists are researching what humans can do to improve their quality of life. Their findings echo what religious practices perfected centuries ago.


When it comes to finding ways to help people deal with life's challenges, it would be strange if thousands of years of religious thought didn’t have something to offer

EVEN THOUGH I was raised Catholic, for most of my adult life, I didn’t pay religion much heed. Like many scientists, I assumed it was built on opinion, conjecture, or even hope, and therefore irrelevant to my work. That work is running a psychology lab focused on finding ways to improve the human condition, using the tools of science to develop techniques that can help people meet the challenges life throws at them. But in the 20 years since I began this work, I’ve realized that much of what psychologists and neuroscientists are finding about how to change people’s beliefs, feelings, and behaviors—how to support them when they grieve, how to help them be more ethical, how to let them find connection and happiness—echoes ideas and techniques that religions have been using for thousands of years.

Science and religion have often been at odds. But if we remove the theology—views about the nature of God, the creation of the universe, and the like—from the day-to-day practice of religious faith, the animosity in the debate evaporates. What we’re left with is a series of rituals, customs, and sentiments that are themselves the results of experiments of sorts. Over thousands of years, these experiments, carried out in the messy thick of life as opposed to sterile labs, have led to the design of what we might call spiritual technologies—tools and processes meant to sooth, move, convince, or otherwise tweak the mind. And studying these technologies has revealed that certain parts of religious practices, even when removed from a spiritual context, are able to influence people’s minds in the measurable ways psychologists often seek.

Kindergartner hits up valu-rite knock off. Not good.

Hand Sanitizer Exposures On Rise; Mother Warns Other Parents After Kindergartener Collapses From Alcohol Poisoning


The little girl set up her desk with pencils and supplies including a fresh bottle of hand sanitizer, which was on the list of school supplies for the kindergarten class.

By lunch, the 5-year-old girl had collapsed.

“The principal called and said to get to the school immediately,” the girl’s mom said. “She was walking a little wobbly down the hall. By the time they got to the classroom, to the lunchroom, she fell and couldn’t sit up straight.”

The mom to three young children does not want to be identified, but did want to share the story of her youngest. She said the little girl was rushed to Children’s Hospital from the school.

Before you give birth, make me a sammich Sugar Tits.

Taliban spokesperson on Friday said that women should not become ministers and that they should only give birth. “A woman can’t be a minister, it is like you put something on her neck that she can’t carry. Not necessary for women to be in the cabinet, they should give birth. Women protesters can’t represent all women in Afghanistan,” Taliban spokesperson Sayed Zekrullah Hashimi told TOLO news.

Bearing testimony to the statement, earlier this week, two Afghan journalists were beaten in police custody after covering a protest by women in Kabul where they were detained by the Taliban.

I hope you are sitting down when you read this. The FBI fired one of their own. No, it wasn't because he abused his governmental powers. Its that he beat his wife like a redheaded step child.

FBI Special Agent Richard Trask was fired in early September while awaiting trial on domestic violence charges, according to The Detroit News. He was previously credited with thwarting the plot to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. The charges for assault with intent to do bodily harm stem from allegations that Trask beat his wife’s head against a nightstand following an argument that originated on the way home from a swingers party they attended.

His firing comes amid questions surrounding the FBI’s use of perhaps 12 informants, members of a supposed far-right militia group, Wolverine Watchmen, that appear to have driven the conspiracy to kidnap Whitmer.

So what!

Meat accounts for nearly 60% of all greenhouse gases from food production, study finds


The global production of food is responsible for a third of all planet-heating gases emitted by human activity, with the use of animals for meat causing twice the pollution of producing plant-based foods, a major new study has found.

The entire system of food production, such as the use of farming machinery, spraying of fertilizer and transportation of products, causes 17.3bn metric tonnes of greenhouse gases a year, according to the research. This enormous release of gases that fuel the climate crisis is more than double the entire emissions of the US and represents 35% of all global emissions, researchers said.

“The emissions are at the higher end of what we expected, it was a little bit of a surprise,” said Atul Jain, a climate scientist at the University of Illinois and co-author of the paper, published in Nature Food. “This study shows the entire cycle of the food production system, and policymakers may want to use the results to think about how to control greenhouse gas emissions.”

You thought politicians had egos. So do "scientists".

SCIENTISTS REVEAL PLAN TO COOL THE WORLD THROUGH GEOENGINEERING
IT INVOLVES CREATING WHITER, MORE REFLECTIVE CLOUDS.


From carbon capture machines to covering glaciers with giant blankets, there’s no shortage of ideas on how to combat the effects of anthropogenic climate change. Now, a team of atmospheric scientists want to create whiter clouds that reflect more sunlight to cool down the Earth.

The project, first spotted by Interesting Engineering, focuses on a theoretical method of geoengineering known as “marine cloud brightening.” The way it works is fairly straightforward: brighter, white clouds reflect more sunlight away from the planet and back into space — so if we can make more, in theory, we can cool down Earth.

With that goal in mind, researchers at the University of Washington, the Palo Alto Research Center, and the Pacific Northwest National Library have teamed up to create an initiative they’re calling the Marine Cloud Brightening (MCB) Project. It’s an “open, international collaboration of atmospheric scientists” researching the potential of using marine cloud brightening to help cool down the Earth, according to a University of Washington blog post about the project.

Spray Technology
The MCB Project has a three-phase research process focused on developing spray technology to send microscopic particles of seawater into the skies to help brighten low-lying clouds. Each phase will undergo review by “independent authorities,” according to a fact sheet about the project, to ensure that the tech doesn’t inadvertently harm the atmosphere.

Well our armed forces are certainly going to Hell. Joint Chief is a traitor. We run from Afghanistan and lose additional blood and treasure. Now National Guardsmen are forced to drive school buses. One bright note, being left behind in Massachusetts is better than being left behind in Afghanistan. Or is it?

The bus driver shortage is so bad that 250 National Guard members were activated to drive students to class in Massachusetts

There is the right way and the wrong way to go through a toll plaza. There there is the Genius Award Winner way.

SEPTEMBER 13--A motorist is facing multiple felony charges for allegedly exposing himself to a series of toll collectors working on a Florida expressway.

Mark Fillyaw, 41, was arrested Saturday and charged in connection with a one-week exposure spree that began on August 31 and victimized workers at three separate toll plazas in Osceola County.

Fillyaw exposed himself seven times while passing through the cash lanes of the plazas, according to an arrest report.

Feeling lucky Punk? Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A Houston woman fatally shot a man who was allegedly creeping outside her house.

The shooting happened on Friday, September 10, around 11 p.m. in the 8900 block of Irvington in north Houston, KTRK reported.

The woman was in her bedroom when she saw the man looking through window. She then grabbed a rifle and fired multiple times through the bedroom wall.

"She was in fear," Houston Police Lt. R. Willkens told reporters on the scene.

The man attempted to run off, but he was hit in the torso. He staggered away from the window and died a few feet from the house.

25 Which book is the top quote from? I think Thomas Moore has written a lot of books and I'm trying to help someone who is hurt from trauma and not a fan of Christianity because of it. I recommended "Philip Yancy's "Where is God when it hurts?" and Disappoinment With God." but that Thomas Moore book might be a good one.

84 Qdpsteve -- Something I'll think you'll appreciate...
Spending a night in Ocean City, MD next week. Within stumbling distance of a cool restaurant / bar called Fager's Island - situated on the water's edge (the bay side). The night I'll be there has 2 musical acts scheduled that are right up my alley. One is a cover band that plays 90s alternative rock. The other is a band called The1974 - a cover band from Baltimore known for "Playing those big 70's hits by those little 70's acts. Pilot. Albert Hammond. Sweet. Snif 'N The Tears. Leo Sayer. Jay Ferguson. Jigsaw. Stealers Wheel. Ozark Mountain Daredevils. Climax Blues Band. Nillsson. T Rex. Bay City Rollers. Gilbert O' Sullivan. Walter Egan".

One of the members of The1974 was in a different band from Baltimore in the 80s -- best known for this song from the soundtrack to Fast Times at Ridgemont High.

I know they have a low reputation and I've called them liars on more than one occasion but in the wake of Nicholas, I have to praise the meteorologists on the local news. They admit that their models go only so far, that weather is chaotic and unpredictable and that predictions can only go so far. In short, they're asked to be authoritative but they have the humility to recognize they can't be. Unlike bureaucrats.

174 Whoa, MisHum, I wasn't aware of Roy Orbison's tragedy. That's terrible.

That performance of Roy you selected was broadcast on PBS decades ago, and occasionally shows up for local fundraising drives at local stations.

Night at the Troubadour was the title. It's an all-star cast, Bing it because I'm too lazy to type all the names.

A small chuckle, it was broadcast on the local PBS station when Little LCD was about 10 or so. Back then of course, smoking was still legal in restaurants and night clubs. As the concert goes on and the smoke in the air gets thicker, it shows up in the lights. Little LCD, watching with me, blurted out something like, "wow, look at that smoke, was there a fire at the concert?".
When i told him they allowed smoking, he at first didn't believe me.
"What happens to the air? How do people breathe in there?"

Good questions, son, good questions.

1 - they were covering the Met Gala thing and of course showed Donkey Chompers and her "tax the rich" dress. As the reporter was talking, she actually referred to AOC as "The far-left Congresswoman". We both looked at each other in disbelief.

2 - they had an interview with some dude who was married to Britney Spears for 55 hours. They showed footage of him in DC on Jan 6th. The reporter said "here he is at the January 6th Stop the Steal rally in DC". Again we were shocked. They didn't say anything about riots or insurrection.

Haven't they heard we are headed to a patch of very cool weather due to the Sun's diminished solar flare output for the last few years? And that we're going to be facing a mini ice age? And if they implement any of these schemes they will wind up making it last longer and be colder?

There just is no thwarting a scientist with an ego. Even worse is an amateur (Gates) who thinks because they were lucky once that they have some connection to scientific truth and cannot do wrong?

And what's worse their changes will be permanent with no off switch so we will be stuck with it.

233 Driving kiddies to school is now a job for National Guardsmen?

Posted by: SMH

School bus driver pay was so low they were working multiple jobs to make ends meet. Accidents were increasing.
So laws were passed so that they could only work 60hrs per week, which meant they couldn't live on their wages as school bus driver as they had to quit their other jobs.
Result: Bus driver shortages nationwide.

Probably the same place that bastardized the true story of the birth of Jesus. In those days, an "inn" was not like what we call a hotel. And a "manger" would have likely been inside - not in an outdoor stable.

Tony Evans had an outstanding sermon series called The Afterlife several years ago. Gives a scriptural explanation of what Heaven really is.

Sandy should be careful about that: Juan used Evita as a PR tool, and when she got cancer she got impatient and started negotiating buying weapons for her supporters.
Juan may well have given her a lobotomy to deal with her "issues" which would have explained her really passive behavior during her last year.
She died, and Juan was going to build a giant mausoleum to house her, but he got ousted in the coup and wound up bringing the coffin with him to Paris, where it stayed on sawhorses in his Paris Flat's dining room, while Juan got remarried (his dinner parties must have been LIT and his second honeymoon must have been a hoot)

Poor Evita is not a good role model for anyone. Banquo at the feast in the end.

276 "Science and religion have often been at odds."

Only because of scientists who misunderstand the proper place of science - that it cannot answer certain questions. That was when the enlightenment went over the top, when it believed that it could throw God out because they were figuring out the secrets of the universe. It was at that point they began to believe science could tell us how people thought and why they acted like they do, and subsequently how they could thereby *improve* said humans. Hubris is the first sin. Always.

356 The amount of trust I have in what Woodward writes to be true and free of propaganda is on par with anything the Uniparty used to impeach President Trump twice. This causes me not trust a single allegation made against Milley, not that I doubt for a millisecond that he would crap on the essential subservience of the military being subject to our civilian government's control. So I am factually conflicted while at the same time I utterly want to believe the allegations based on circumstantial evidence this is exactly what this fuck would do. Evidence 1: His woke crap is intended to make it possible for make the mission of the military to take out the opponents of the Uniparty. I think he is a traitor and deserves the full consequences of that action.

I'm guessing that the wife's injury, after her head being smacked against a piece of furniture, was a little hard to overlook. And I believe that police are now required to make an arrest for domestic violence when there are visible injuries. In addition,maybe local police don't like FBI that much.

But is that scriptural? And my earthly father, who passed away many years ago, is not my Heavenly father. I've come to understand that the primary activity in Heaven is worship. I believe we will reunite with our loved ones, but we will be more like brothers and sisters - all experiencing uninterrupted joy in the presence of Jesus. Nothing else will matter!!

This one example is all one needs to forever never believe one word coming out the mouths of the Uniparty. Any group of people this untethered from truth is dangerous.

The Church's burial practices "confirms her faith in the resurrection of the body, and intends to show the great dignity of the human body as an integral part of the human person whose body forms part of their identity."

The burial of ashes or their reservation in a sacred place ensures that they are not excluded from the prayers and remembrance of their family or the Christian community -- an essential practice of the Faith. Burying the cremains preserves the deceased's memory and makes it easier to remember them in prayer, as well as avoids the possibility of 'unfitting or superstitious practices.'

I've never been one to debate the particulars of Heaven.

Jesus spoke of being the Living Water and the Bread of Life and that whoever comes will not hunger or thirst. Most take this as spiritual and figurative. But if we did not physically eat again, it wouldn't matter.

I can say this of Heaven with certainty, whatever the format, not one will be disappointed. The glories that are to come are the greatest comfort as we reckon with the birthing pains of the age to come.

We can not fathom a world without sin, as we were born of it and into it. This will be the truest of true miracles, a pure world free of it.

Brothers and sisters in Christ, indeed! Since the Church is His bride, and God our Father, makes kinda sense that though we will recognize and even love each other in Heaven, our relationship (hub and I) will not be like it is in this world.

BTW, Today's Lefties claim that Yamamoto never said it. Judging from their track record of everything else they said the last decade or more, I don't believe them about the quote, either.

466 Meat accounts for nearly 60% of all greenhouse gases from food production, study finds

The global production of food is responsible for a third of all planet-heating gases emitted by human activity, with the use of animals for meat causing twice the pollution of producing plant-based foods, a major new study has found.


Liars got to lie.

First of all, we need to eat food, so cutting out food production is non negotiable. Fun fact: Termites put out 20 million tons (cattle 1.5 million tons) of methane annually.

Its hard to enact more Communism with termites, but interestingly, if people were permitted to harvest fallen wood out of the forests, there would be both less food for termites and less fuel for wild fires.

According to my (very limited) understanding - Cremation is allowed but only if the remains are buried in the ground. Scattering of ashes after cremation, of any form, is prohibited by Catholic Canon Law. The ashes of the deceased are to be interred, and the site of burial should have a gravestone or marker to honor the dead. Displaying the urn at home or showing the ashes publicly in any way is contrary to church doctrine.

489 Best story about toll booths: I worked at corporate HQ for a chemical distributor out west. One of the credit managers traveled back east to visit customers/salesmen. He arrived and rented a car - we'll say a white escort (it was the 90's)

He met up with the salesmen and they instructed him to follow them. They also said "Hey! Good job on a white escort! Our toll collectors have a daily 'car of the day' and escorts are it! You don't have to pay any tolls!"

He followed them and at each toll booth they paid their toll and his, telling the booth worker "this is for the car behind us." He followed along smugly, thinking he had the car of the day.

At the last toll, they did not pay! Sirens went off, he got pulled over, and kept assuring the cops "I have the car of the day!" They got the corporate guy good.

Texas law on this point is markedly different on this point.

Eh, having himself un-married from Katharine of Aragon was maybe a bit sleazy but there again, he had reasons to be seriously concerned about the baby-making situation. Or were you thinking Catherine Howard, the second chopped one? IMO she totally deserved it, as Boleyn probably didn't actually have an affair but Howard most certainly did. Her last words were supposedly something like "I wish I had died a Culpepper [the other guy's name]."

Boleyn was the really tragic one, as the whole case against her was total bullshit from jump street and she did nothing wrong aside from not put out. Henry was supposedly torn up about the situation too, but affairs of state had forced his hand. Also useful to consider that in marrying her, Henry had effectively declared war on the Catholic Church. It was a bad situation all around.

527 I won't take the vaccine. I hope it doesn't become mandatory to gain access to healthcare. If it does, well, I'll forego healthcare for the interim. But I'll be suing.

You can't unvax.

I think one of the problems is that people still imagine that if they submit, they can go on with their lives and be "normal." No. There won't be "normal." I'm afraid people will be selling out their freedom and bodily integrity and still get shafted in multiple ways. You may want to start thinking outside the box of "normalcy." Think about what you have to offer that isn't part of the system.

Meanwhile, it's essential that a large pool of us remain unvaxxed. Since I'm retired, I guess all I have to sacrifice is healthcare. Maybe.

528 No, initially the scare-mongers and grifters were predicting an Ice Age. This was pretty well widespread. Among other things. "The World Will Run Out of Oil by 1990" was also popular. Leonard Nimoy ("Mr. Spock" on Star Trek) narrated an episode of a program called In Search Of called "The Coming Ice Age".

For some reason the lefties really have a stick up their ass about this stuff, and claim none of this ever happened.

530 Bitter Clinger, 100% correct.

Just that Henry had so many options, IMHO, rather than executing people. He could have been an innovator in terms of not being such the bloodthirsty monarch. He could have argued with them, fired them, even deported them. But no, he just had to see so many necks on the block.

The Jews were dealing with barbarians pretty much. Henry wasn't and chose to execute them anyway.

554 1- Actually I think Yamamoto understood the material military odds, should America decide to pursue things, based on his time in the US. Hence his (actually documented, I think) answer to higher authority when asked about a war with the US: for 6 months, I will run wild, after that, no promises.

Which showed a fairly astute appreciation of the then-superiority of Japanese naval power, as well as the appreciation of US industrial and military potential.

For those interested in Japan's astonishing, catastrophic war non-decision (it's really hard to describe, it's so ridiculous), I highly recommend "Japan 1941" by Eri Hotta, a Japanese historian. Exec summary: in private, and reality, literally none of the senior, experienced Japanese military or civilian leadership actually thought Japan could win a straight-up fight with the US, but they wouldn't say so in a decisive group setting.

567 2 - And the idea wasn't to invade west coast cities. It was to 1) pre-empt the Pacific Fleet's ability to interfere with Japanese seizure of the southern resource areas (the primary point of the war) 2) hope - hope - that faced with a fait accompli in the western Pacific, the US would sue for peace.

Interesting tidbit: not only Baron Nishi, the Olympic equestrian who died on Iwo Jima, had time in the US. The commander, Kuribayashi, did as well.

Only weirder thing is that the Japanese foreign minister responsible for putting Japan in the Axis pact, and who had a far more frivolous optimism about beating the US without a full-blown conflict, Matsuoka, was quite Americanized, graduated from Oregon State law school after spending his teen years in the US.

602 576 I was thinking of Boleyn, but yeah, Katherine Howard was a total ho for sure. Wasn't she the one who had a thing with her music teacher or some shit when she was like 14?

I recently read a book about Lady Jane Grey. Now that was pretty interesting. It was fiction, but the historian who wrote it is extremely knowledgeable and explained in the afterword which parts she made up and which she had sources for.
Posted by: Mrs. Peel at September 14, 2021 10:54 PM (8548M)


Yeah, that's pretty much the Catherine Howard story. Total ho, and she was wifey numero cinco so she has zero excuse for what happened next.

Jane Grey is another of the great tragic figures in English history. Even moreso than Anne Boleyn, she did her utmost to do the right thing but was just a victim of circumstance. And it was more than just her parents...there were a lot of asshole manipulators mixed up in that.

But it's another object lesson in how, in feudalism, having a rock solid line of succession is SERIOUS BUSINESS.

603 "The only way they could get those things back thru us would be to pull out of China and go home and give up their ambitions of empire,."

Inversion. They lost scrap metal, then oil, BECAUSE of their depredations. And the issue, especially in the case of moving into southern Indochina (Vietnam), which led to the oil embargo*, was hotly debated inside Japan, with the US trade response a central issue.

So yeah, their activities in China (outright pointless barbaric conquest, without even any economic payoff - we're talking central China, not the prize of Manchuria, which they already had), and their pre-positioning in southern Vietnam (all that it was) for taking Malaya, had consequences. They were in charge the entire time, FDR was merely reacting.

* good reason to believe the oil embargo was not actually meant to be one, more of a conditional reduction, but that State and others turned it into one

607 Evening.

ABC News is reporting that Newsom beat the recall. Well, not surprised. Disappointed, but not surprised.

I was really surprised to see that they're reporting he's winning it with a 2-1 margin. Buuuullshiiiit!!!!! That's a fucking joke if I ever saw it.

But what I did find most heartening was that Larry Elder was beating the pants off his other opponents. Like he's got nearly half of that vote. Next regular election I think Elder should definitely run. Get the nomination and freakin' *run*.

Anyway...It's late. I'm tired. And old. And fat. Mostly tired. I have to get moving early. Gotta make the money so I can get by in this cruel and heartless world. To buy the things that give no meaning and provide no joy. Filling life with material goods that always leave oneself empty, desperate and hopeless.

Let's not go off half-cocked here. Sin is sin, and hatred is a sin, as is murder. That doesn't mean you should do both. It means you should not do either.

But please remember, Jesus was not against righteous anger. He make a whip out of cords and took it to the money lenders, and he was not subtle on that point.

Probably best not to proof-text when it comes to what Jesus wants you to do. Otherwise you end up like the loons all wearing the same dress.

Clapton mailed it in - no fire, no passion, painting by the colors. I was utterly disappointed. On the other hand JV crushed it. I have seen his band now 3 times, they never mail it in, they have respect for the music and the audience.

Pure circular reasoning. One's act of shooting elevates a situation to a life or death scenario, which then justifies the shoot.

I bet one of the reasons the Big People are going nuts over the vaccination rate is that they didn't actually get it like they said they did--just like they proudly wear those masks for the photo op but only for the photo op--and are now losing it because the "make everyone else be our guinea pigs" gambit is going sideways.

677 Remember to some material degree the actual future of the country rests on the decision of the Senate parliamentarian about the germaneness of amnesty on the budget reconciliation bill.

Absurd, but no exaggeration.

An unelected Senate staffer's decision - which is obviously an open and shut case, by any measure or precedent - has more importance for the nation's future than almost any election (2020 excluded).

The accelerant of amnesty, with the current situation of an open border and dissolving internal enforcement, will be enormous. And permanent, both in terms of 10s of millions of lawless migrants who will never be expelled, and the evaporation of any vestige of credibility in any immigration rule of law.

But, to be fair about it, people don't mess with the crackers in the TL; they're the real crazy ones and all I have to do is move with a purpose and be aware. The Hondurans hanging out on the corner at all hours are quite friendly (seriously, like they're polite and stuff), but they're "businessmen". All kinds of stuff is sold a block from the state and federal courthouses.

My bigger issue is that the city is becoming utterly dysfunctional. There's hardly any parking yet our public transit is a joke. Gubmint blows through $ billions and nothing works. Roads are routinely closed off. I'm kind of glad they have a vax requirement to get into any place that sells food or drink at retail because I can't afford it now anyway.

725 Americans have no idea whatsoever just how vulnerable stick houses are, either in suburbia or rural areas. They are poorly defensible and not particularly proof against invasion, and easily perforated by gunfire. We lived in a "high trust" society, that is gone. It wasn't that long ago doors were routinely left unlocked and keys in the car ignition.

Once the rule of law is gone, once "city services" are gone, and roving bands of lawless mobs start running amok, people will start to understand.

I'm not going to dig up Texas law, but I know for a fact deadly force is lawful at night for defense of life and property. Maybe not trespassing per se, but near enough. There is no reason to be rooting around someones car, garage, or peeking in bedroom windows. They are up to no good. I actually agree with you, but I also agree that there is undoubtedly far less of the sort of "petty crime" that seems to go hand in hand and escalate with serious criminality.

"Don't start none, there won't be none" is pretty good way to look at it. The way things are going it will be moot. You better figure out if, and how, your domicile is defensible.

727 Here's USLawshield's description of mischief at night law.

However, Texas law also allows you to use deadly force in response to theft and criminal mischief, but only in the nighttime and provided you meet the other requirements to protect your property. So, what is the nighttime? Nighttime is defined as 30 minutes after sunset up through 30 minutes before sunrise. What's criminal mischief? Criminal mischief is when someone intentionally or knowingly damages, destroys, marks, or tampers with your tangible property or deprives you of its value. What's theft? A person commits theft when they unlawfully appropriate your property, with the intent to deprive you of your property. Remember: if you encounter criminal mischief or theft during the daytime, you may only respond with force, not deadly force.

Yes. It was poorly written and had almost no detail. The quoted LEO seemed to think, "she feared for her life" is justification alone. At a minimum, courts will try to ascertain if the fear was justified and whether there was mortal peril at play. The details in the story don't establish that.

I mean, MAYBE the Medial Chief of Staff at Providence Hospital and the entire Medical Executive Committee is in on the conspiracy. I mean, it could happen. Totally!

If you believe that, though, you should have no problem signing a pledge stating that a) you refuse the vaccine and b) you agree not to seek hospital care if you get sick with COVID-19. Given that you think the doctors are all IN ON THE MASSIVE CONSPIRACY, you shouldn't want to go there anyway, right?

But you won't.

742 I'm not sure I would call that a conspiracy theory--Israel is pretty confident that delta-delta-delta don't give a shit about no vaccine, and quite a number of notables in the US that are supposedly* vaccinated have gotten the coof. The bigger question is probably where the variants stop and the media hype machine starts, but unlike the early stages of the pandemic it's damn hard to get actual raw information these days.

* noting my earlier assertion that these notables in the infotainment industry are probably lying, because lying is what the infotainment industry does

812 I live in a very nice neighborhood,

....and the criminals know that's where all the good shit is!

It is a sad reflection of the human condition, that in the absence of the rule of law, every offense is a Capital one, pretty much. But that's why people need to pay attention to the cretins making our "laws", they've turned things inside out and upside down. They are increasing anarchy, not reducing it. Shit goes sideways, and it looks it has every chance of doing so, what that lady did won't even be cause for comment. Didn't say I liked it. Just that this is what happens, it is inevitable.

It has not been a problem in my neck of the woods, but it has been in the PHX area, for sure. The thieves especially like 4X4's, because they can roll under without having to jack them up. Two minutes, tops.

The cops could end this pretty quick with some bait cars, but they don't seem to give a damn.

860 Now that it has been (apparently) established government and business can require practically anything of its subjects and employees, I look forward to the fragrant possibilities of all the shit they can make people do.

Fat people, especially. Low hanging fruit right there. Anybody who has been in the military knows how this works.

Yes, you get "free" everything - food, clothing, housing, and medical care. BUT, they literally own yer ass. They tell you how to wear your clothes they provide, in excruciating detail.

And you best be there every day for morning roll call, formation. 0600 hours. And be ready for an hour of calisthenics, and a 2 mile run. If you're overweight - well you get a little more attention.

Think of all the lives saved. Most people can easily stand to lose 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50 pounds. Some need even more. Fat loss will save Billions of dollars in health care costs. I can hear it now.

All that "fat shaming" stuff they are complaining about has to go. Fat people are filling the hospitals. Taking up beds. Sucking up health care dollars. Killing Grandma

Thank you for some much needed sanity here, and hopefully some reassurance for those worried about their loved ones. My brother-in-law was diagnosed in late June with kidney cancer. He had several diagnostic appointments and had his kidney removed three weeks later- at a CANCER hospital. He's had several follow-up visits, none impacted by COVID. My sister has been battling metastatic breast cancer for years. She has not missed a single appointment with her doctors at a CANCER hospital due to COVID.

No, we haven't changed. We're both the same guys who took the uniform off and put it away all those years ago.

We're older now and not the physically fit fighting men we were in our prime, but the heart is the same.

Many years ago our government sent us thousands of miles from home to fight to make men free. We did that. Then we came home and put it away.

I'll be anxious to see what Rich Baris says about it because a month ago he got me pumped with polling that said Elder can win it and sounded confident. He said that on a "What Are the Odds" with Barnes and Sunday night Barnes said Californicate was just too much of a donk state. I'm sure Baris had subsequent polling figures but I don't like being misled and stopped going to a bunch of sites after November because of how badly they got smoked. Dave in Fla is a big fan of Baris too so I'm anxious to read what he says.

Sin is why we live in a corrupt world. Life is a blessing.

Christianity was birthed during persecution, so anyone selling that just because one is saved means you won't have to deal with suffering and pain is wrong.
That said, those of us who are in the Lord know that He is returning, and God's original plan will be brought to fruition, but in the meantime, it's gonna get ugly, and only those strong in Christ will have any hope.
But until then, we persevere, with the knowledge and the blessed hope of His return.

This is where Protestants tend to run off the rails, IMO. God created, and what He created was good, including humans. We screwed that up all on our own.

He also send His Son to redeem us from our depravity, which proves his mercy. And mercy isn't a trickle, or a stream, but a huge river flowing down from Him at all times in all places, and all you have to do is reach out and grab it. Because, like any parent, He still believes we can be good.

932 The Gunsmoke radio program (different cast) had a decidedly more darker tone, and more killing. One theme they definitely pounded on, was the rule of law. "Vigilante justice" was always wrong, and the way it was portrayed in the setup, it was. They invariably chose the wrong person, someone innocent. Thankfully, there was a federal US marshall on hand to set those poor uneducated rubes to what's right.

They also had PSA, admonishing listeners to never judge people on their national origin, or color of their skin. Because that would be Unamerican. Judge people on their behavior, and theie character.

Re reruns. Law and Order (and a few of the spinoffs) can be pretty good. Went downhill after 9/11 when they started getting political. Jerry Orbach's "Lennie Briscoe" (yes, it's spelled with the "ie") detective character is a hoot. All of all Jack McCoy's harem of assistant prosecutor babes, Angie Harmon was my favorite.

But now, I've stumbled on a "House" marathon on one of the other umpteen hundred channels. House was a jackass. A real SOB. But it's fun to watch his jackassing. If any real doctor did 10% of the shit he pulled, he'd be sued out of existence at the least, and probably be in jail on a slew of criminal charges.

But, wait, there's Dr. Anthony Fauxci. House is a pussy compared to the shit Fauxci has pulled.

In CA, probably.

Demographics are unfavorable, Dems have super majority in the legislature. Mail ballots going to every registered voter means lots of Dems who wouldn't care enough to go to a polling place will end up voting.

Arnold poisoned the CA GOP, not particularly competent and too liberal so many conservatives have given into apathy.

Newsom's recall was truly animated over the hypocrisy of him living it up while everyone else was stuck at home. The news cycle is long past that and restaurants have been back open for awhile now so many people no longer care at this point, I'm sure.

Darlin', let's not lose our shit. The "news" here is that the hospital is full of covid patients. It isn't. It is always full: they don't build beds to sit empty. It is the lie put up by the "news" that there is no healthcare available.

I personally designed and contracted the build-out at the Alaska Airlines Center for overflow from the hospitals. They never used it, and they finally turned it back into a gym. It cost millions, but was unnecessary. It remains unnecessary.

As for those who choose not to vax, none of us is dimwitted nor a whackjob, but if you think so, you are welcome to leave and not associate with us. Enough of the insults to people who have treated you nicely here.

I've seen this quote before but this time I interpreted it a bit differently. Th is time I read the first half as applying to the act of faith which once tried will never disappoint. Then the second half also referring to the act of faith and the difficulty of choosing faith.

Kitten and mouse update. As Miley mentioned, our two kittens, Purry Mason, and Della (Street) managed to catch a mouse. They let it get away. But Jake, our big 15 lb tomcat, made an appearance (he timeshares between my parents and the new house). He caught another mouse for the kids, disabled it a bit, and let them have it.

The kids played with it until they killed it, but they haven't eaten it yet. Della just bolted back in the house, leaving Purry to play with the corpse. Jake has gone, probably disgusted with those retard kids who can't kill a mouse properly and don't even know to eat it. Whole. Jake eats 'em whole.

982 Thomas More is the saint I think. Thomas Moore is the Irish poet.

Couldn't sleep Saturday night and was watching the 1966 biography of St. Thomas More, "A Man For All Seasons." Short backstory: Thomas is the chancellor of English under Henry VIII and is basically the only nobleman who won't support Henry's plan to divorce his wife and marry Anne Boleyn. In this scene his friend is trying to convince Thomas to sign off on supporting the marriage because everyone else has.

The Duke of Norfolk: Oh confound all this. I'm not a scholar, I don't know whether the marriage was lawful or not but dammit, Thomas, look at these names! Why can't you do as I did and come with us, for fellowship!

Sir Thomas More: And when we die, and you are sent to heaven for doing your conscience, and I am sent to hell for not doing mine, will you come with me, for fellowship?

Back in a day when men really did or didn't believe things, and those beliefs had consequences. Today I'm waiting to hear by Friday whether my employer will work with me regarding my religious exemption for the COVID vaccine. Not (yet) in danger of having my head nicked off like St. Thomas More, but interesting times..

I think I'm gonna pack it in. Purry is playing with the dead mouse on the back porch. He's picking it up and throwing it, then pouncing on it fiercely. You're supposed to eat it, boy. Oh well.

I don't see Jake. I think he left in disgust at those retards. Jake has caught a full-grown rabbit and tried to drag it in the house. It was too big for him to carry it, so he just dragged it.

I don't blame him. He catches and disabled a field mouse for those two retards, give it to 'em, and they can't kill it properly. And don't even know you're supposed to eat it.

1022 Wood sorrel is also rich in Vitamin C. Historically, it was used to treat scurvy, fevers, urinary infections, mouth sores, nausea and sore throats.

A small patch of it grew wild on the west side of my parents house along the foundation. Hardly noticeable, but as a little kid about 3 or 4 I did. I used to eat it. Somehow I "knew" or thought I did, that it was okay to eat. It looked harmless enough. It tasted citrusy. Mom about had a heart attack in the kitchen one day when I explained how good it is.

1050 A golfer has a dream in the night. An angel appears and tells him "I have good news and bad news. What do you want to hear first?"

"Tell the good news first."

"There are golf courses in Heaven."

"What's the bad news?"

"You have a 9:00 AM tee time."

1052 Wife is trying to make cold brew coffee

Posted by: Skip at September 15, 2021 03:30 AM (2JoB

I make it for one of the brats. It's a low-acid technique, and it is certainly easy.

Since CBD is in the house I will relay that I read an article claiming Sous Vide cold brew was great. I haven't tried it yet.

Posted by: Pete Bog at September 15, 2021 03:48 AM (Jzz++)

1054 CBD did ask why would you do that?
And answer was low acid. But making it a day before isn't my idea of coffee.

At the risk of being taken by the joke....it doesn't surprise me. People will sous vide anything, even when it makes no sense.

I don't think it was a joke. If I recall correctly 2-3 hours at 145 to 155 with a 7:1 water to coffee ratio. Do not recall if beans are whole or ground. Brewed in quart jars in the sous vide bath.

I don't like cold brew well enough to have tried it

Posted by: Pete Bog at September 15, 2021 04:12 AM (Jzz++)

It seems like it is far more trouble than it's worth. Regular cold brew is easy. I put ground coffee and cold water in a large press pot. Into the refrigerator overnight and it is done.

Why bother with sous vide?

Agreed. And the approval of his actions by the bien pensants is a powerful indication that they have contempt for the Constitution and its philosophical underpinnings.

1077 Meat production causes 60% of the emissions...because meat products are 60% of our food. Get rid of meat...and you have to increase vegetable production by 60%. emissions saving...zero.
