Good morning again, Hordians.

I would, but have none. A breakfast burrito and some French bread with butter and honey, plus coffee, was my repast this am. (Okay, maybe a little dark chocolate too.)

Chekov the Ailing Codger Cat, as I reported on the earlier thread, is moving around and eating steadily. This morning I'm off to the vet to refill his Rxs.

15 Also today, I need to box and wrap Miss Linda's birthday presents: a box of petit fours from Swiss Colony, and an Irish wool sweater from eBay. The former is already boxed, of course. I picked up a couple of the collapsible folding boxes you can get at Dollar Tree, but I don't know if the sweater will fit into them.

There's a real (read: mostly cigars) tobacco shop in the 'burbs near Chekov's vet. Maybe I'll stop by and see what pipe tobaccos they have. Their website mentions pipes and pipe tobaccos, but gives no details.

Unless turquoise shirt dude was pulling a gun, in my opinion it's not a justified shooting. Black shirt dude retreats about 15 feet and then fires two shots. It's going to be hard to claim self-defense. Especially since he was the dumb-a$$ that escalated the situation by coming out of the house with a firearm.

Boyfriend (armed) vs. ex-husband. Always a bad combination for the guy when children and visitation stuff is concerned. That's why, when I was young, I had a policy of not dating women with child. Women know it makes them less desirable in the dating game and they'll try to hide that fact.

50 Our turkey breast roast (didn't read the label properly, again) was excellent. Per a recipe by a gal from the Ukraine, I studded it with garlic and coated it with fresh herbs from the garden.
He liked it a lot.

Tonight we're going to the Sausage Supper at his church. He spent Wednesday tying off sausage links and is still stove up from working at a low table.
But the sausage will be delicious.

I'm making a couple of pies to take: pecan and an apple/cranberry crumb.

55 If black shirt guy is the home-owner ? Then he's justified, at least in my state. A home-owner is entitled to instruct someone to leave his property. He's entitled to do so with the benefit of a gun. He's entitled to use said gun if blue shirt guy is dumb enough to try to take said gun.

Unless turquoise shirt dude was pulling a gun, in my opinion it's not a justified shooting.

58 They use a 150 year old recipe for the sausage mix, then smoke it at a local smokehouse on someone's farm.

One occasion where it's okay to see how the sausage is made.

It's such an enjoyable event- the servers wear costumes, someone does lovely table scapes and the teens walk around with trays of pie slices.

I think where black shirt dude has jeopardy is because he retreated about 15 feet, and it seems turguois shirt dude was just beating his chest. It'd be a bit different if he was charging black shirt dude.

80 What state do you live in? I find it a little hard to believe that you'd have blanket immunity to just shoot somebody because they refuse to leave your property.

In my case ? Indiana - a castle doctrine state. Lethal force is authorized by law to prevent bodily harm to one's self or others, as well as the defense of one's home, vehicle, or property - as well as to stop a forcible felony - or the defense of a relative's property or third party when previously authorized.

Indiana is by no means the only castle doctrine state. Blue shirt guy had already attacked black shirt guy. I doubt there is a requirement to retreat in Texas - the fact that black shirt guy backed up to get a better shot means nothing.

It'll go to a jury, I imagine. You seem to be trying to read into the situation a requirement to retreat, where I doubt one exists. If it doesn't in Indiana - I doubt it does in Texas.

No, you've got to get up to speed: according to the Salvation Army, everything is the fault of white people. I've read their "training" document "Let's Talk About...Racism" and it's stunning. Full embrace of Liberation Theology, Intersectionalism, Communism and hating on white people. They're no longer a Christian organization; they've been fully assimilated by the Borg.

Where I disagree with you is the fact that the guy in the black shirt [did] retreat. If he had blasted the guy in the turquois shirt when he grabbed the gun barrel, different story. There's an immenent threat at that point.

Retreating to get a better shot changes the dynamic. It will almost certainly go to a Grand Jury; whatever they decide will determine black shirt's fate. We've got a few seconds of recording -- the police will get more data.

I'd say black shirt guy will get indicted, then either hung jury or acquitted. There's letter of the law - and then whatever a jury decides. I doubt they find twelve guilty votes in a Texas jury.

His lawyer needs to play up the need to defend the woman against imminent attack, then fear that blue shirt guy would charge again - since he already had once. Blue shirt guy was crazy - he attacked a man with a gun, and that gun wasn't even pointed at him. Blue shirt guy was out of control.

97 So Fairfax County is returning the (temporarily removed) gay and pedo porno books to its pubic school library shelves, because they're "diverse" and some kids can relate to the experiences depicted in the book (like having an adult man stick his penis in a boy's mouth). Meanwhile, in Canada, schools are banning a book by a woman who was kidnapped by ISIS and tortured and raped, because the content of the woman's book may be offensive to Muslims and may cause islamophobia.

LOL, apparently some sensibilities are more privileged and entitled to protection than others. Imagine that.

Key note; It's a "commission". That means all the members of the denomination didn't vote on this, nor did all its clergy at whatever their general meeting is called. It's some crackpot commission that did this- made up, I expect, of about 40 people. You can expect that many individual members of the SA didn't now about this and were annoyed by it.

133 Interesting that the delta variant shows up a month or so after the vax comes out. Now Omicron shows up after the big push to get a "booster" to your initial vax. Would be a good job for an alleged journalist to investigate if there are differences in the boosters each nation receives, and then comparing that to where these new "outbreaks" occur. Wish-casting, I know.

When my two shredded the rope, I'd buy some more rough twine and the little hammer-in staples at the hardware store, cut off the old rope, and wind the new one on with a staple every few turns. A wipe with my hands on the rope so it smelled right to them, a sprinkle of catnip, and voila, a new scratching post for a cost of $5.

My first wife had a red tabby *female* -- yes, really -- who was nobody's genius in other departments. But she could stand on her hind legs and turn a doorknob with her front paws to open a door. I saw her do it. If the doorknob was higher up and out of her reach, though, in older houses, she was out of luck and would meow at us. "Open it! Naaoow!"

They figured out all of this in something like 48 hours. Then some reporter insinuated that HIV was somehow involved - which has now been denied by the health authorities in Botswana. I think this needs at least another 48 hours to become clearer.

But I do know I have my order for ivermectin sitting in the check out cart of my offshore supplier.

Yes, but the thing the virologists warned about is vaccinating in the midst of a pandemic. The four individuals in Botswana already had the vaccine, so now the variant is possibly even stronger/more efficient against those already vaccinated.

Most of the time virus become weaker over time. Which was the logic behind waiting it out.

Again as has been said, virology and epidemiology no longer exist.

Viruses as they circulate through populations tend to attenuate, they may become more infectious but usually do not become more virulent.

There are hundreds of different strains and types of "common cold" and 100 plus subtypes of influenza viruses, this is madness, evil and mass psychosis.

If it was as deadly as they believe the rutabaga wouldn't restrict travel, he needs it here and needs it to spread so that he could then look presidential fighting it. He won the presidency through the rot panic and cheating and he needs the rot and a show of fighting it to help boost his failing popularity. Of course he may realize that even this will not work since reviving his popularity is like giving life support to a 3 week dead corpse. So a show of blocking it from entering the country instead.
You know I truly believe that neither scenario will work. Yes, there are some truly disturbed people that believe they can cheat death by masking, vaxx, etc but most want lower gas and food prices.

262 The USPS has a pretty good union. Plus they hold hostage a significant percentage of the mail and package delivery. As for Congress... *types, deletes*

Plus I speculate that the USPS had employees involved with helping with mail-in ballots and stealing the 2020 election. So this is their reward for helping usher in the current regime.

263 * Flights will never resume. That's part of the plan to reduce the carbon footprint of you proles. The airline industry will be one more casualty of the agenda.

Plus, they get in the way of Gates', Gore's, and Kerry's private flights.

267 The Omicron variant has more than 30 mutations. As Zod would say "Gloriously mutated".

It's almost as if some state actor bred a new virus, and released it in an unrelated third country to continue global chaos.

Who could possibly do such a thing? Who would benefit?

271 Ohio State At Michigan today. Always rowdy. I hope for the mother of all FJB chants today, along with a few choice words directed at Governor Witless.

Always look forward to this game. After moving to SE Michigan in 1999, I quickly learned of the arrogance and boorishness of Michigan football fans, as they treated me like garbage after finding out I was a Purdue grad. I got so sick of their shit, I became an Ohio State football fan and have relished their dominance over Michigan the past 22 years.

273 So, are we all getting ready for Christmas Week, when China invades Taiwan, Russia invades Ukraine, and Iran nukes Saudi Arabia, all at the same time?

Joe Biden is a once in a lifetime opportunity for our adversaries, after all.

275 "We'll get the Super Mega Fatal variant, maybe the Unavoidable Imminent Death strain."

Is that before or after the "Holy Angel of Death" and "The Pale Horse of the Apocalypse"?

If it was a mistake, then the mistake was that you thought they would act rationally. In fact, their continued lockdowns and enforce mania is completely insane - they are destroying everything they sought to gain; the economy they wanted to control, their base of support, even the country itself.
Many look at this and think "aha, China is behind it!" and while that may be partially true, I've also seen (as have many of you) how a self destructive insanity can set in to a person and lead them to destroy themselves. I believe we're seeing that happen to an entire political movement which holds most of this countries leadership. They're locked into it and no longer have the ability to break out of it.
For our own survival, we now have no choice left but to overthrow and destroy them, no matter the cost.

277 They've skipped from the Nu to the Omicron variant. The letter missed? XI. Is that because they are ALL the XI variant?
