Rules? Yes my little Morons, just a few simple ones:

1) Opine
2) Bloviate
3) No running with sharp objects
4) Be kind to one another
5) Have a wonderful weekend!

Temps are expected to be in the 50s to about 60 today -- what local people consider "cold." Of course they want to walk around all year dressed like Bart Simpson, and refuse to buy actual jackets, coats, and caps.

The tradition among politicians seems to be, once a president/secretary of Something, always a president/secretary. They're still calling the Hildabeast "Madam Secretary." On a brighter note, retired generals and admirals are still called by their titles. Everybody still calls Lady Diana Spencer "Princess," even though she technically stopped being that when she divorced Charles. So why shouldn't the Rev retain his title?

63 Temps are expected to be in the 50s to about 60 today -- what local people consider "cold."

Growing up in California, I learned that "winter" was when the high temps would only get to the fifties - sometimes.

Working for a company in the Bay Area years later, the people who had never lived anywhere else would whine, and whine, and whine, on the handful of days every year when the early morning temps only got to the forties. The few employees who had lived in the Midwest thought that that was very funny.

Religious titles only go away if you surrender them - i.e. resign or are defrocked.

One of the priests in our parish is retired. He still does a couple of Masses a week and in his homilies will joke about how long ago he retired and yet here he still is because while he no longer is in active ministry, he can still perform the Sacraments.

Cardinal McCarrick, for example, was removed from the priesthood - laicized. Since the 2002 reforms, that's pretty much the first thing that happens to any clergy with credible allegations of misbehavior. It need not be criminal, just one that brings scandal upon the Church. I know of two examples - one resigned and the other remained ordained but was removed from active ministry and as far as anyone knows, he sits in a monastery and prays.

South Africa is literally at the ends of the Earth. You have to make very deliberate plans to go there. It is not possible to just wander around aimlessly and bump in to South Africa. J'burg should be on exactly no one's bucket list.

Until they get ill or just completely fed up, they tend not to retire, They're either filling in for someone in for someone or doing Bible studies, so Rev. is fine-which he would have put in the bulletin when he does fill in. Congrats to Rev for his years o faithful service. He doesn't have to prepare a sermon and liturgy every week, which I think would be a nice break.

122 The Boston Massacre killed three people, and wounded eight.

The Waukesha SUV Accident killed six people and injured 62 others.


One huge improvement though. When the authorities were hunting down the perp in the Boston Massacre, they rolled out their newly acquired 1033 gear, and we got all of those frightening photos of tanks, APCs, door-to-door raids, aiming 50BMG crew served weapons at innocent people, all of that hard core police state stuff that gives totalitarian politicians four-hour-wood.

This "unfortunate accident" was dialed down to stumbling across the SUV casually parked in a driveway nearby.

There was always a few big trucks of mexicans allowed to pick through stuff and load it up and take it down south. Don't know if they had to pay for that.

Peco Energy, which serves Philadelphia and its suburbs, will boost its energy charge by 6.4% on Dec. 1, from 6.6 cents per kilowatt hour to about 7 cents per kWh. Energy charges account for about half of a residential bill.

Politics is inherently fluid and one of the unintended consequences of US weakness is that hitherto passive allies are now being forced to step up.

Taiwan finally announced that yes, it has long range missiles that can close all of Mainland China's ports. Japan has been roused to unheard-of levels of military assertion, openly consulting with Taiwan's defense ministry for the first time ever.

India likewise is ready to respond to any ChiCom provocation. If China invades Taiwan, the resulting crash in global trade will make what we're experiencing now seem like the Good Old Days of Plenty.

Mary Surratt is the lone female charged as a co-conspirator in the assassination trial of Abraham Lincoln. As the whole nation turns against her, she is forced to rely on her reluctant lawyer to uncover the truth and save her life.

Everyone in US government basically states that in time of war, you throw out the rule of law and the Constitution. Reminded me of what we have been living in since March 13, 2020. Hell, the entire world is living this nightmare of ignoring all rule of law or human rights, "because COVID".

Sounds like a really stupid, historically inaccurate movie.

By the spring of 1865, we were engaged in total war. When Lincoln was assassinated, it took an already enraged North to the next level.

At the time Sherman was negotiating a surrender with Joe Johnston. Just before going to meet, a telegraph operator handed Sherman a cable with the news that Lincoln had been struck down. He swore the man to secrecy on penalty of death and when he got to the meeting, cut through all the greetings and handed Johnston the message.

Sherman later wrote that beads of perspiration stood out on Johnston's forehead as read the message. Sherman then told him point blank that if the war didn't end that morning, he would be unable to stop his troops from burning every southern town under their control to the ground. Johnston surrendered.

Wow, 72 hours ago no one even heard the name Omicron variant. Now, in less than three days, a variant has been identified, global travel has been halted, states of emergency have been declared, and now we see a pharmaceutical company announcing the variant-specific vaccine trial that will begin in the U.S. in a few weeks. This government relationship with Big Pharma is certainly generating some fast action, eh?

The irony is that this is pretty much how the original Plandemic started. It was January 2020 when anyone heard of "COVID-19". In February 2020, all Democrats and media were calling all information about COVID-19 from the Trump Administration "misinformation" and telling people there was nothing to worry about, go out and "hug a Chinese person" to show you're not racist.

I looked into this and one of the issues is planning for demand. A peak in demand that has not been properly planned for can lead to big surge in cost do to storage, pipeline, and actual gas cost.

Texas has added about 10% to the underground storage capacity. Now the question is will the actual generators lease that storage and fill it with gas.

Posted by: Ace-Endorsed Author A.H. Lloyd at November 27, 2021 10:10 AM

Admittedly, I have not yet researched to confirm the accuracy of the movie yet. They portray Edwin Stanton, Sec of War, as someone who refuses Mary Surratt, a civilian, the right to a trial by jury of her peers. She is convicted by a war commission of generals and a judge hand-picked by Stanton. At the last minute, Surratt's lawyer is able to obtain a writ of habeas corpus to get her a jury trial. But the day she is to be hanged, they are informed that the President has denied his writ.

It was later voted by Congress that civilians would be granted a trial by jury. Surratt's son, who was actually guilty, was not found guilty by a jury of his peers and was set free. Implication being that had Mary Surratt been granted this, she would have been set free as well.

Here are some lines from the movie from Stanton (Kevin Kline): https://imdb.to/316rNZd

267 I don't think I've ever seen such a look of dejection on the face of my daughter as I just did. She couldn't understand why people were endangering her life by refusing the vaccine. "Don't they believe SCIENCE?" she asked pitifully.

I sat with her and tried to calmly explain to her why ignorant Trump-lovers would actively try to kill her. "And yes honey, St. Fauci ordered them to get a booster and they ignored that as well", I was forced to say.

I tried to keep my voice steady, but it was increasingly difficult - the rage and feelings of helplessness were too much. She could tell something was wrong. I found myself at a loss for words - nothing makes sense anymore. I finally admitted, "Honey, I just don't know - I don't know what's going on in this country anymore..."

When I finished her lip started to tremble and her eyes filled with tears, "Mommy" she said, "why are they doing this to me?" Well, that was it for me: I fell apart. She just fell into my arms and we both sobbed for several minutes.

She had to comfort me and get me back on my feet. Sometimes I just think it's too much, but seeing the strength in my young daughter's voice helped me to get through.

"The Department of Justice (DOJ) released a 54-count indictment that charges 24 individuals, many illegal aliens, with operating a "modern-day slavery" scheme that utilized the H-2A visa program to traffic foreign workers into United States farm jobs - raping, kidnapping, and threatening them in the process....In some cases, the indictment states, the trafficked foreign workers were required to dig onions in Georgia farms with their bare hands, were paid only 20 cents for each bucket harvested, all while being threatened with violence.

The various Georgia farms that contracted the trafficked foreign workers reside in Atkinson County, Bacon County, Coffee County, Tattnall County, Toombs County, and Ware County."

How is this possible without people turning the blinds eye ? Well, it is not. It is easier to get filthy rich on modern day slavery than actually pay wages. The result - you saw what happened in 2020. Warning, California tried to get rich like that - look where we are at with CA.

Roger Mudd was also key in heading off Teddy "Drunken Lecher" Kennedy's primary challenge to President Peanut, by committing egregious journalism and asking Teddy a bunch of hard questions.

While I think Reagan would still have won even if Jimmy Earl had been dumped, Teddy would probably have been a tougher opponent (the Kennedys were still worshiped by way too many people, even in '79). So, props to Mudd for that.

While I think Reagan would still have won even if Jimmy Earl had been dumped, Teddy would probably have been a tougher opponent (the Kennedys were still worshiped by way too many people, even in '79). So, props to Mudd for that.

Well, the USDOL is busy excluding Covid legislation from any oversight from CFR29 and using their enforcement to target the regime's political opponents (farmers tend to be conservative) they probably didn't have time to investigate or enforce MSPA violations. And of course the state level enforcement, there is more money in enforcing invented civil rights violations. Gang slavery and peonage is back in the fields, but our bakers will bake the cake.

If the comment about digging onions by hand is true, though, it is correct that if the wages are low enough there is no need to mechanize.

I have no idea one way or the other, as I have not studied the history around her case. But I just think about how all we know about the case is what has been written in history books by an entire country which hated her. Government, media, probably every citizen of the North. The gist of the movie is that she was convicted and sacrificed in order to appease the mob, facts and perjury be damned.

Reminds me of the Rittenhouse case. If there was no internet and no social media, and 100 years from now people only could read what the mainstream media and government officials stated about the case, how would people 100 years from now see Rittenhouse?
