The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“There was a conspiracy here. You’ve heard me talk about this for many, many years. The Clinton campaign conspired with really bad agents and bad actors within the FBI and other locations. So, this guy you’ve got lying to the FBI.Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA)


Quote II

“Everyone’s making a bigger deal of it. For me, it was kind of just something you do.”Michael Harvey, a former Farmington Hills firefighter

Quote III

"These individuals have no medical training. They're not experienced and they're putting people's lives at risk." Alan Hamilton, LAPD deputy chief

The NFL could have a very big problem on their hands. LOLGF'D!

Following a Missouri judge’s decision to deny the NFL’s motion for summary judgment in a 2017 antitrust lawsuit related to the Rams moving from St. Louis to Los Angeles a year earlier, the league, franchise and team owner Stan Kroenke may be looking to settle the case out of court before it goes to trial.

But the cost to settle the suit, which alleges the Rams move St. Louis to L.A. was a breach of contract, fraud, illegal enrichment and interference in business that caused significant public financial loss, could be very, very pricey.

With a pre-trial hearing scheduled for Friday and a trial date set for January 2022, it may make sense for the plaintiffs to settle ahead of the trial, and sports attorney Daniel Wallach told Front Office Sports a $1 billion figure could be a “starting point” for the settlement, warning there may be “major damages” if a St. Louis jury rules against Kroenke and the NFL.

How major?

“The plaintiffs claim the city, county, and state have lost more than $100 million in hotel, property tax, sales tax, and ticket tax revenues since the Rams left town,” according to FOS. “If the judge allows the jury to consider the valuation increase along with the $550 million relocation fee, punitive damages — which multiply damages as a deterrent — could surpass $10 billion.”

Sure make the minimum wage $26.00/Hour for these "graduates".

Let them work at Taco Bell.

Maspeth High School created fake classes, awarded bogus credits, and fixed grades to push students to graduate — “even if the diploma was not worth the paper on which it was printed,” an explosive investigative report charges.

Principal Khurshid Abdul-Mutakabbir demanded that teachers pass students no matter how little they learned, says the 32-page report by the Special Commissioner of Investigation for city schools, Anastasia Coleman.

“I don’t care if a kid shows up at 7:44 and you dismiss at 7:45 — it’s your job to give that kid credit,” the principal is quoted as telling a teacher.

Abdul-Mutakabbir told the teacher he would give the lagging student a diploma “not worth the paper on which it was printed” and let him “have fun working at Taco Bell,” the report says.

Well if anyone would know anything about "election cheating" it would be the current resident of the White House.

The Biden administration released a statement on Monday condemning the Russian elections that saw Vladimir Putin's regime retain their hold on power.

This after surveillance video emerged showing ballot box stuffing in the Russian election. Multiple videos and photos allegedly showing ballot fraud have made their way out of Russia since Friday, according to the AP.
The State Department issued a statement saying that the "September 17-19 Duma elections in the Russian Federation took place under conditions not conducive to free and fair proceedings."

Amazon says if you can't beat them, join them.

Amazon says workers and applicants fired or barred during marijuana screening are now eligible for employment

Considering how my last package looked, I say the Amazon employee was feeling no pain or knowledge of packing.

***


The James Bond series focuses on a fictional British Secret Service agent created in 1953 by writer Ian Fleming, via Wikipedia. James Bond, not Jane Bond. Even moonbat Daniel Craig knows that.

Daniel Craig Says James Bond Shouldn’t Be Played by a Woman. Is He Right?
The 007 actor would rather see more new roles for women

I'll let someone else spew 3,500 words about this.


***


Will someone substitute some Gorilla Glue for Elmer's to give The Paste Eater In Chief?

President Joe Biden, addressing the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday for the first time since taking up residence in the White House, did what he does best:

Embarrass his country with a foreign policy speech that was detached from reality, full of straw men and false dichotomies, rambling and incoherent at times and — c’mon, man — punctuated by avuncular exasperation and fake bravado.

The 23-second video below captures the tone of Tuesday’s oration before the global body.

Oh Hell, I feel so much better now. I will be able to fall asleep without pangs of guilt.

I have no idea if this shit is real or not. However, it is weird enough to be true.

A WOMAN has revealed that she has experienced the ultimate betrayal, as her mum is marrying her ex-fiancé.

Posting a video to TikTok, a woman named Marisa explained how her mother went behind her back to marry her childhood sweetheart.

It really is time to disband the Federal Bureau of Incompetence. Just another illegal seizure of cash, nothing to see move along.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA- We suppose if you can’t balance the federal budget the right way, just illegally seize people’s assets and that will work. That seems to be the case with the FBI, where we are seeing a situation in which a man’s life savings were seized from a safe deposit box business in Beverly Hills, CA.

Joseph Ruiz, an unemployed chef went to court to retrieve some $57,000 seized by the FBI, whereby the judge ordered the agency to tell Ruiz why they were trying to confiscate the money.

So much for animal rights!

Dozens of endangered penguins were killed by bees in a ‘fluke’ incident in South Africa, a wildlife organisation has confirmed.

The swarm of insects repeatedly stung the sea creatures on a beach, the Southern African Foundation for the Conservation of Coastal Birds said on Sunday.

Tests found that the 63 African penguins – a species which features on a prominent ‘red list’ for endangered animals – had no injuries other than the stings, while a number of bees also died.

He was once a daring escapee and lived on the lam. Now he's a quitter.

An Australian man who had been on the run for nearly three decades turned himself in recently, after being rendered homeless by the pandemic and struggling to find work.

On the night of August 1, 1992, 13 months into his three-and-a-half-year sentence for growing marijuana, Darko “Dougie” Desic escaped from the Grafton Correctional Centre in New South Wales, using tools, including a hacksaw blade and bolt cutters. Despite an extensive search, authorities were never able to locate Desic, and he remained a fugitive for the next 29 years. So imagine everyone’s surprise when he just turned up at a police station one day to turn himself in after all this time. As it turns out, it was all because of the Covid-19 pandemic, as the lockdown in NSW had left Desic homeless and with no way to support himself.

During a North American tour, Bob Marley collapsed while jogging in New York's Central Park. After hospital tests he was diagnosed as having cancer. Marley played his last ever concert two nights later at the Stanley Theater in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. via thisdayinmusic.com

On this day: 21 Sep 1987
American jazz bassist Jaco Pastorius died from injuries sustained in a fight. Pastorius was trying to enter the Midnight Bottle Club in Wilton Manors, Florida, (where he'd been banned), and became involved in a fight with a bouncer, Pastorius fell into a coma and was put on life support. In 2006, Pastorius was voted "The Greatest Bass Player Who Has Ever Lived" by readers in Bass Guitar magazine. Was a member of Weather Report and worked with various acts including Joni Mitchell and Herbie Hancock. via thisdayinmusic.com

I guess someone didn't read the instruction manual closely. Genius Award Winner.

SEATTLE — A man was hurt when a large firework went off inside his friend’s apartment Friday.

Just before midnight, Seattle fire medics were called to an apartment building on Rainier Avenue South.

The man and his friend had left a firework on the counter too close to a hot stove. When they realized the fuse had been lit, they tried covering it with towels to prevent it from exploding.

Another reason to enjoy High School Football. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Last week, school officials in Putnam County, Tennessee, were told that district employees were not allowed to lead students in prayer. That included not only teachers and staff but also coaches of athletic teams.

According to WZTV-TV in Nashville, Americans United for Separation of Church and State complained about “several instances of prayer and proselytizing at events at Cookeville and Upperman high schools,” both of which are in the Putnam Country School District.

Administrators from the school district contacted the schools’ attorney, who informed them that the law about cases such as this one is clear.

Civil disobedience unlike the Burn, Loot, Murder crowd.

Norm McDonald wasn't funny and his run on Weekend Update was terrible.

Norm McDonald had a couple of funny moments. The Conan O'Brien interview he did with that chick from Melrose Place. Dirty Works was hilarious. Mostly he wasn't funny. He did things you could appreciate after the fact . Telling terrible dad jokes at a roast isn't funny. But that's the joke, right? Well that's something you can appreciate, sure, but it's still not funny.

To minimize the spread of #COVID19, including the Delta variant, the United States is extending restrictions on non-essential travel at our land and ferry crossings with Canada and Mexico through October 21, while continuing to ensure the flow of essential trade and travel.
This Notification may be amended or rescinded prior to that time, based on public health considerations.
In coordination with public health and medical experts, DHS continues working closely with its partners across the United States and internationally to determine how to safely and sustainably resume normal travel.

76 The Clinton campaign conspired with really bad agents and bad actors within the FBI and other locations.

This is the kind of shit that irritates me to no end - not only about Devin Nunes - but more about those that think like him.

The fucking guy thinks he can control something like the FBI. He's a retard. He's a living example of why the "if only the FBI were not corrupted by XYZ" crowd is doomed to fail.

What, exactly Devin, kind of people do you think something like the FBI attracts ? For bonus points - compare and contrast the FBI to any other secret police. My God - he is an idiot.

if I ever here the term "dad joke;'again it will be too soon. I am sure I will read it here and hear it tomorrow in some form.

I understand what you are saying,. THere are many who never got Norm Macdonald. I sent a clip of his to a relative and i only do that once every few years. He didn't like it. It was Norm's last appearance on Letterman. The thing about cameras and Germans. I think a lot of Millennials and Millennial wannabes were but hurt about the camera phone jokes.

I see how Norm is not exactly mainstream. Some times he was doing performance art. But make no mistake, this is not hindsight love. I would have told you a year ago he is my favorite comic. I love what Ace is doing, I hope he keeps it up because we are not going to get the Norm types again.

156 A stealth-still refinement of my own.

Re-purpose an industrial "bubbler" water cooler, to take the place of an ice-cold mountain stream flowing through the condenser barrel. Instead, fill the barrel with ice water, and cycle said ice water through the bubbler's refrigeration cycle, while the alcohol condenses as expected in it's own coil leading to the tap.

Now, you don't need a constantly flowing cold water source, and can site your still quite comfortably indoors at a location of your choosing. Small scale tests say "it works", but I might need more refrigeration for a 25 gal still. Follow the Science. It's for the BOURBON! CHEERS!

219 Gangbangers shot 2 kids (perhaps rival bangers) outside my daughter's high school today. The wounded kids ran back into the school, and the school immediately initiated their "shooter" protocol.

Gangbangers then loosed a few rounds at the school and got one through a window. They then drove off quickly with no serious pursuit of their previous targets.

Good thing we live in a Red state and there are armed police in the school. I can't imagine the mind-set of the people that believe having a few middle-aged social workers at the door would have the same deterrent effect.

I used to love the Cowboys. I wasn't a fair weather fan,I was born in Tejas and freaking loved the Cowboys vs Redskins fights that would happen here. The kids and parents would get involved, it was all out war.

I think the Cowboys were very reluctant on the BLM anti flag stuff.They are the wealthiest sports franchise in the world. But the NFL went woke and brought everyone down. To be honest,I simply don't give a shit anymore. They chose their path and it is just one more example of the abolition of this country as framed.

Say what you will about the Cowboys,but no one could ever dream of a time they are not the Dallas Cowboys. These other teams change their names, change their towns, and people can at least admit that is a normal thing that could happen. With the Cowboys,that would be impossible.

I'm all for the smaller leagues, it might even make me care about sportsball. Back during the late Minnesota era (circa 201 I went to a Saint Paul Saints game and generally enjoyed it--they were trying to win, of course, but they weren't afraid to have some fun doing it. They're part of a second tier league with maybe a dozen teams in it.

Bill Murray is a part owner of the team, and the manager is the guy that was ultimately responsible for Disco Demolition Night. That should give at least the 29 year olds an appreciation of how this team rolls.

I'm still surprised at folks - you run into them in business all the time - that think "golf" or some other mundane activity is how you get to know somebody.

Give them keys to a car - the grandest exercise of freedom they'll ever know - and watch what happens.

A great many people simply can't process all the information coming at them. And that's good to know. As long as you're in a parking lot.

I had a late lunch last week in the middle of farm country Ohio at a family run place. It was empty except for one other customer - an old guy who was clearly a regular. The 20ish waitress had nothing to do while our meals were being prepared and so was talking to the old guy. He asked her how things were going and she relayed that she was on track to afford her own apartment in January. She still worked her 2nd job midnights at the grain elevator. Right now she was sleeping alternating nights at both her Mom's and Dad's (divorced I guess) but didn't have her own room at either place. She was on the coach at one place and rolled out a flimsy mattress at the other in the tv room at the other.

She wasn't bitching about her lot in life - it was just the way it was but she was making progress. A happy, upbeat young lady.

327 Hoboken restaurants have the outdoor dining spaces set up for covid. These consist of four to five parking spaces in a row on the street in front of the restaurant (in a town squeezed for parking to begin with) that have been closed off with plants and plywood walls and strings of lights. It's either 90 degrees and humid or raining and now we're heading into Fall/winter so these outdoor spaces don't get much use.

399 The Daisy VL .22 and its ammo can be described as a diesel firearm system. I last shot mine about 20 years ago. No failures to fire with twenty rounds. I would test some ammo to see if it works after fifty-some years, if it wasn't all at the bottom of the Congo River.

Which raises the question: could you build an actual Diesel firearm? One that shoots a tiny jet of fuel into the chamber at the same time the charge of compressed air gets shot in? Instead of using actual Diesel fuel, use ether starting fluid, which ignites readily in a cold cylinder.

423 Cash confiscation is a bit different, I don't know why other than "because we say so". Normally or historically at least in the US the idea was there is a presumption of innocence.

What they do (really) is charge the cash with a crime. So the court cases are something like "State of Missouri vs. $6450" and it's up to the defendant to prove the money isn't the result of illegal proceeds.

Money is fungible, so I'm not sure how that factors. It might be that the actual $6450 is perfectly legitimate, but they've earned that and more and have that stashed on deposit at a bank. Beats me.

So, some enterprising folks are smuggling in food from the rest of the country. Auckland cops just busted a load of KFC being brought in. They laid it out for pictures like a massive drug bust (I'm sure that evidence won't make it to the evidence room -- Kiwi Meal Team Six will take care of it).

20+ years ago I lost my master list of 1/700 scale ships and had to rebuild it first from memory and then I had to dig through storage to find the original model boxes. The ship images on the boxes are works of art, so I kept the tops of the boxes, flattened them then stacked them in a large storage box. This lead me to the discovery that I had repurchased some of the models because I had forgotten I had built them already. I have at least 80, 1/700 scale IJN ships alone. Other than the few I have here at Beartooth manor, the rest are still in storage and waiting to be handed off to the grandsons.

I don't even want to think how many 1/76 (not 1/72) scale WW II military models I have lurking in storage.

452 I think US 6 is what I took from NV one time, arriving in Bishop (where we stopped at Mahogany for sandwices and jerky).

Coming from Reno, went by a route other than 395. Took us through Fallon (where Top Gun moved, from Miramar), and then to Hawthorne (reason for the route), and the ordnance museum there. Beautiful drive, of course. Surprising how much farm land was under cultivation. I think water is the only issue - lots of bottom-land and ancient river areas, probably most ideal for farming.

Any Morons traveling in the area, with an interest in military history and ordnance, strongly reco the Hawthorne museum. Area was the site of an enormous WWII ordnance depot (storage bunkers still visible, in a vast valley area).

Under Federal Law. State Law, or even County jurisdiction is different. It's very much illegal to distill booze or even own a still or the parts, in certain jurisdictions.

Supposedly the legislation that de-criminalized home beer brewing in 1976 or whatever was also intended to allow for home distillation, but some sort of clerical error prevented that part.

475 If I remember correctly and I may not, home distillation of spirits is prohibited in all but maybe one country. New Zealand maybe.

It is also widely ignored. Lots of home hobby hooch being made. Pretty good stuff.

Prohibition completely destroyed the beer industry for almost 100 years. The Hipsters like to think nobody drank good beer before they came along. At one time any town of any size had one or more breweries. Good stuff too.

476 399 The Daisy VL .22 and its ammo can be described as a diesel firearm system. I last shot mine about 20 years ago. No failures to fire with twenty rounds. I would test some ammo to see if it works after fifty-some years, if it wasn't all at the bottom of the Congo River.
Posted by: Gref at September 21, 2021 10:06 PM (AMIL/)

Which raises the question: could you build an actual Diesel firearm? One that shoots a tiny jet of fuel into the chamber at the same time the charge of compressed air gets shot in? Instead of using actual Diesel fuel, use ether starting fluid, which ignites readily in a cold cylinder.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at September 21, 2021 10:16 PM (6X9gs)


Yes, I don't see why not. Several nations tested liquid and gaseous propellant artillery pieces, but none have ever made it to production for service use to my knowledge. Thinking as I type, I do not know if any of them used 'diesel' ignition, though. Scaling-down non-solid propellant to small arms, diesel or not, may create a lot more problems than benefits. I do not know of any small arms or 20mm - 40mm guns using the diesel approach, other than the Daisy VL.

The driver was a 22 year old young pup, who was working 2 jobs, and fell asleep at the wheel. He wandered into the center divider, and a 10ft ornamental tree launched him airborne. My first clue was a sky of exploding green leaves, then a silver lexus 250 rolled 90 deg to the left, 6ft agl, headed for my head.

I managed to swerve 1/2 car width, he hit my left driver mirror, and bounced off my left rear qtr panel. Nobody hurt, and he even had insurance!

489 Agree with others that driving skills have generally dropped out there on the roads.

When you think about it, it makes sense. With the wholesale government-decreed devastation of small businesses the last year and a half, people simply have less reason to drive. No schools, students didn't need to get anywhere. Bars and restaurants closed, no car going out with people needing to eat or party. And since Amazon is now the government-approved place to buy goods instead of the local strip mall, no need to get in your car to shop.

The point is, any skill like driving is under the heading of "Use it or Lose it". And the results of this attack on a free economy carries many unexpected results.

I might try wine one day but I admit it will just be a lark. I will have to get the grapes from someone else. I did plant concord vines that i got from a relative. Concord make shit wine.

I tried the beer thing once but i sucked at it. I have had legit good stuff from guys how brewed their own stuff. I could try it again but I doubt it. I have made cider many times and it has gone from great to undrinkable. I did the same thing every time, and that is the problem. THat stuff gets one whiff of a funky bacteria in the air, and it is over.

I also grew my own tobacco though I really didn't use the product in that form. I did it to say F you to the gov and because it was my right. THat was a lot of fun but a pain in the arse. I basically grew cigarette tobacco but tried to make a plug of chew out of it. It didn't end well,but I did go threw every step and to be honest, it was a lot of fun.

Seems to me the Gyrojet principle is something that home hobbyists could work with. As I understand it, the propellant was smokeless powder, ignited by a more or less conventional primer in the base of the bullet. Big drawback was that the projectile did not reach max velocity until it had traveled a few yards.

Seems to me that Gyrojet-like projectiles might be useful in the 20 - 40 mm size range, for anti-materiel weapons,

Wireless power transfer is possible and can be done efficiently under certain conditions. There is near-field and far-field techniques. Near-field is non-radiative, and depends on near-field coupling. That is limited to about 1 wavelength. You can get up to 10 wavelengths with clever resonance.

Beyond that, you have to use far field radiation. You can transfer significant power via microwaves through the atmosphere for long distances. God help if you (or birds or other animals) get in the way of such a high-power beam field.

You might say, hey the wavelength of 60Hz is about 3000 miles. Couldn't we do near-field with that and go over big distances? You could. But you wouldn't believe the size of the coils and/or capacitor plates you'd have to use.

And if you did that, you wouldn't want to be immersed in the enormous EM fields you'd be creating on a continent wide scale.

More likely by induction. A series of coils embedded in the roadway, and the vehicles carry a coil tuned to the frequency of AC being used. Probably not 60 Hz, as air-core transformers suck badly at low frequencies. Maybe around 100 kHz, as a WAG?

Still very inefficient.

546 Seems to me the Gyrojet principle is something that home hobbyists could work with. As I understand it, the propellant was smokeless powder, ignited by a more or less conventional primer in the base of the bullet. Big drawback was that the projectile did not reach max velocity until it had traveled a few yards.

Seems to me that Gyrojet-like projectiles might be useful in the 20 - 40 mm size range, for anti-materiel weapons,

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at September 21, 2021 10:49 PM (6X9gs)


YouTube has a few good videos about the GyroJet system. The essential user problem was poor accuracy, due to inconsistent rocket-propellant ignition time after leaving the barrel, and inconsistent thrust from the in-projectile rocket propellant.

547 537 Jimmy Doolittle, I thought that Hawthorne now was mostly limited to de-miling ordnance (an excellent place for that, obviously). And it must have been chosen, obviously, for west coast requirements. Don't think the forces/fleet on the east coast would draw their ordnance from western NV.

Vancouver, B.C. has electric trolley buses, and has had them for nigh-on 80 years. Parallel pair of wires overhead, supported by poles, carry about 600 volts, IIRC. Buses have spring-loaded poles on the back, with shoes that glide along the wires. Show of sparks at junctions, quite commonly. The trolley buses are faster and quieter than Diesel buses, and last nearly forever.. Friend of mine drove one, and said they can go like stink, if you put the hammer down.

At Brooks, Oregon at the Antique Powerland, they have (Had?) a couple of electric streetcars that originally ran on the Lisbon tram lines in Portugal.
When I was there last they didn't have a full loop set up so they would go to the end of the streetcar line, unplug the big plug, and grab the cord that unhooked the overhead connector (called the pantograph by the way) walk it around to the other direction, plug the power back in, ring the bell, and go back to the station.

642 I remember the Lisbon trams, they were so mellow and slow, like Lisbon itself (at that time), that you could pretty much trot and hop on after they'd left their "stop". This was the late 80s, early 90s. Place was just a perfect sleepy small city.

Leningrad had trams, trolley buses, and diesel buses (I think, about the diesel ones). Trams were best. Used to just take one to the end of the line, step off, and explore. You got used to the stares.

Nagasaki has old tram cars - inside there are photos and little notations about the cars' histories, in other Japanese cities. Another very nice, mellow small city (still).

676 Welp, another day, another threat by management that I'm going to lose my job. The Colonel had a "coffee chat" virtually because he's too much of a pussy to hold it outside in our current weather and too chickenshit to have it inside with us dirty civilians, and he brought out the government's coof plot. So I asked him why I was being treated differently than vaccinated people when I had already filed my religious exemption, and why he would be happy to abrogate my First Amendment rights. He dithered rather badly, and then said it would be too expensive to have the coof blow through the Corps so he had to institute these "controls." So then I asked if it was his intention to say the my First Amendment Rights were too expensive to defend. That's when he said maybe I shouldn't consider the Corps a good place for me to work.

That would be the fourth threat in less than two weeks. They are serious as a heart attack trying to get rid of anyone who thinks. They can't fire me, because I have done every draconian thing they can toss in my way, and I have told them explicitly that I will not break their rules, but they will pressure me to quit. Good luck with that.

699 Speaking of "beer", today I pulled an engine from a car that I got running back in June. Damned mice had packed the engine's water jacket full of field peas and barley. I flushed and flushed the rad, and got some of it out, but not all.

Fast forward to today: all the peas and barley left in the cooling system got cooked into a thin porridge, and then fermented in there. Whee-ew! Quite the stench, I tell you. And probably corrosive as Hell, too.

If you Google ivermectin, what comes up are many articles telling the reader that ivermectin is bad, dangerous, doesn't work against Covid, etc. Nothing positive or even honest until the second page.

The Colonel had a "coffee chat" virtually because he's too much of a pussy to hold it outside in our current weather and too chickenshit to have it inside with us dirty civilians, and he brought out the government's coof plot. So I asked him why I was being treated differently than vaccinated people when I had already filed my religious exemption, and why he would be happy to abrogate my First Amendment rights. He dithered rather badly, and then said it would be too expensive to have the coof blow through the Corps so he had to institute these "controls." So then I asked if it was his intention to say the my First Amendment Rights were too expensive to defend. That's when he said maybe I shouldn't consider the Corps a good place for me to work.

I'd ask them, "exactly HOW many in the Corps have died of the "Vid in the last 6 months?" Guessing it is fewer than accidents or drug overdoses.

It's a myth (though a popular one) that the civvy Aussies gave up all or most of their guns. Moar gaslighting is closer to the truth.

1. Sapporo Lager. Was once a VERY delightful tipple, direct from Japan. Complimented anything sourdough like you couldn't believe. And now? Fuck Molsons.

2. Newcastle Ale. A darkish, amber ale, once found in a true 16oz British Pint, and imported from Newcastle, England, as was right before God and His prophets. Nothing better to accompany a perfectly done steak. And now? Fuck Molsons.

I'm sure y'all can add to the Fuck Molsons list. It has to be extensive.

"Ivermectin obliterates 97 percent of Delhi Covid cases"

From June. Of course you didn't see it in the fake media. Because it works, and would cost Big Pharma billions and billions of those sweet gubbermint dollars.

Now think about it, if any drug obliterated a potentially deadly disease by 97%, one would think that it would be news, and that even the Biden gubbermint would be shouting it. Or at least pursue it.

But, nope.

I had and ex GF that lived in Newcastle for a long time. I loved the beer regardless of the previous fact. My favorite Brown Ale is Samuel Smiths. In fact, there is no question I would put Samuel Smiths Nut Brown Ale in my top five beers of all time. It is not cheep but it is really good. I haven't compared it to Newcastle in a long time, but like you said, that one has gone down hill. I do love a brown ale. One thing I know just like the Sun will rise in the East, is that anyone who tries this pick will admit is is damn good.

prize was a ride in the back seat of a Kiowa, vice eating dust on the Burma Trail back to Club Bob from Hungry Lizard yet again, then the Brigade CO (full bird) turned me and his driver loose in the 151 with vague orders (and no time line) to seek chow and then get back to the BDE CP over in East Garrison. we did, after a pit stop at the PX, where i got us both a 6 pack. home boy could NOT hold his liquor. (whoops). no harm, no foul, and, other than me leaving my much hated M-25 AFV crewman pro-mask behind the next morning, a good time was had by all.

Ivermectin is so safe it can basically be given out like candy. They do that to treat parasites. The US govt is doing those out to refugees coming in from countries where parasites are endemic. It's so safe you can give it out generally without bothering to test for the conditions it treats. Cheaper.

For other drugs that are still safe, the small risk is such that you want to test for the condition before you treat. Risk benefit, of course. Ivermectin risk is so small, you don't have to bother with that. There are a few contraindications, but they can be resolved with a few questions.

For example, blood thinners interact with ivermectin. If you're on those, you may have problems, which required some adjustment.

I also need to recalibrate some scopes and sights. I think I'm going to give Miley a lesson in laser boresights and some ballistic chart zeroing.

My down-and-dirty boresighting has always been to zero on the near zero with the laser, then make minor adjustments at the far zero from test firing. I zero on 200 yards far for the .223 and .308s.

If anyone recommends any different, let me know.

College will do the same and then a degree, out of school the student will go find a job flipping burgers for $26.00 and hour.
Give them a (B) if they do show up and simply stay out of trouble but don't learn, give them a (B+)
