The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"We are all very disappointed. We just don't understand why she did it. It was like being hit in the head with a 2-by-4. ... It was a double-fisted gut punch. It was devastating. I still have trouble believing it."Michael Steve

Quote II

“The minute they hand you that vaccine passport, every right that you have is transformed into a privilege contingent upon your obedience to arbitrary government dictates. It will make you a slave!”Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.


Quote III

“I’ve really learned how to value myself and my work. “I don’t think it’d be hard for me to find another job.” Jacklyn Reyna, a member of the nonprofit MOVE Texas’s union


Quote IV

“As prosecutors, we have an obligation in every matter we pursue to continually examine the facts while being open to receiving and uncovering new information. Today’s dismissal is a result of that process and is in the interests of justice.” U.S. Attorney Rachael Rollins

Quote V

“This is ridiculous, I’m sorry I don’t know a better word to say. The community is tired. We are tired of seeing peoples’ lives snuffed out too soon in preventable situations. This is absolutely preventable—any of the gun violence that we’re seeing is preventable—and we cannot continue the same trajectory that we’ve had for the last two years.” Arnitta Holliman, the director of the Milwaukee Office of Violence Prevention


A funny thing. I didn't know a gun could walk into a house and go bang, bang, bang, bang, bang, bang all by itself. She should just keep her mouth shut and let the investigation unfold. Something tells me there was at least 2 people involved in this murder spree and there were reasons, probably criminal in nature.

Here are some hacks to prevent, get rid of ice on windshields
Precautions, tips to battle freezing mornings

ORLANDO, Fla. – Many of us in Central Florida woke up to icy windshields and frost early Monday, and we may have to deal with this again later this week.

As winter continues, we’ll see some mornings where we have to deal with ice on our cars and, in some cases, deal with it quickly to get to work or school.

There are some preventative measures you can take to help prevent icy windshields and other quick methods to get ice off your car.


If you don't have an ice scrapper just start your car and use the defrost feature as well as the rear defrost. SMH.


FROST!?! I'll show you frost and ice.

A Wisconsin attraction featuring ice-sculpted tunnels, slides, fountains and other structures opened to the public after about 4,000 man-hours of preparation.

The Ice Castles attraction, which has become an annual tradition in Lake Geneva, features towering structures created from ice and is expected to remain open to the public through early March, if weather cooperates.

I wonder if these altruistic public servants have made their fortunes already?

Twenty-seven House members have signed onto a letter drafted by Democratic Rep. Jared Golden of Maine calling for House leadership to "swiftly" bring forward legislation to ban members of Congress from owning or trading stocks.

"This glaring problem will not go away until it is fixed and Congress should not delay when we have the power to fix it," read the letter, which was addressed to both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

"Perhaps this means some of our colleagues will miss out on lucrative investment opportunities," it added later. "We don't care. We came to Congress to serve our country, not turn a quick buck.

The ONT is full of opinions, and here is one of mine. You may or may not agree.
Newt, it isn't 1994 anymore. The "Right" doesn't need you in out front anymore. Shut your pie hole and go away. If and when the GOP takes the House we can deal with the J6 Bull Shit.

Newt says J6 Committee could face real risk of jail when GOP is back in power, Cheney leads response


The idea that a day of reckoning could be on the horizon for the members of the Democrats’ select committee to investigate the events of January 6, 2021 isn’t sitting well with the two Republicans who were hand picked by Nancy Pelosi to put a false face of bipartisanship on what has been a politically motivated witch hunt.

I thought we had a Commander in Chief for our armed forces. The buck does not stop at Mush Brain's desk.

The U.S. Navy's supercarrier USS Harry S. Truman, along with its associated strike group, are now under NATO command and control as part of a major exercise called Neptune Strike 22 in the Mediterranean Sea. This comes as the Russian military prepares to launch large-scale naval drills around the world, including in the Mediterranean, which some members of the alliance, as well as experts and observers, fear might actually be part of preparations for a new military intervention into Ukraine. A number of NATO nations, including the United States, are or are considering sending forces to areas along Russia's borders, and are sending weapons and other military equipment to Ukraine, in response to the Kremlin's actions.

The U.S. Sixth Fleet turned over operational control of the Truman and its strike group to Naval Striking and Support Forces NATO (STRIKEFORNATO) today, marking the beginning of Neptune Strike 22. The Truman Carrier Strike Group also includes the Ticonderoga class cruiser USS San Jacinto, the Arleigh Burke class destroyers USS Cole, USS Bainbridge, USS Gravely, and USS Jason Dunham, along with Carrier Air Wing One and the Royal Norwegian Navy frigate HNoMS Fridtjof Nansen.


Putin doesn't fear Biden, he laughs at him, out loud.


Oh wonderful US Troops prepare for deployment to Ukraine.

TOPLINE Up to 8,500 U.S. troops are now under "heightened preparedness" for a potential deployment to aid Ukraine under orders from President Joe Biden, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said Monday, though he emphasized no decision has been made on whether the troops will actually go.

Women wanted equality and look what the freaks of nature have sown.

The anonymous teammate told The Washington Examiner, “Lia was not even close to being competitive as a man in the 50 and the 100. But just because Lia is biologically a man, [Lia] is just naturally better than many females in the 50 and the 100 or anything that [Lia] wasn’t good at as a man.”

The teammate continued, “The top people at NCAA, who are on the board of directors … they are not protecting women’s rights. Imagine if there was this kind of inequality in men’s sports. Or someone found out about doping in a men’s sport. It would be fixed in a blink of an eye. Everyone would be all over it. But because it’s women, they don’t care.”

Well if you are stuck in a cubicle......You might as well make it comfy.

After an extended period working from home during the pandemic, some workers are beginning to return to the workplace and saying goodbye to their home offices.

One employee took their return to the office extra serious this year, opting for a complete makeover of his cubicle to make things feel more homey. The changes to the workspace were documented by Mike Beckham, the CEO of the company.

“Recently one of our newest team members asked if he could decorate his cubical,” Beckham wrote on Twitter. “When I said yes, I wasn’t expecting this…”

Beckham shared three photos of the finished product, which resembled a rustic cabin. The plain walls and flooring were replaced with a faux wood finish. The employee decorated with stuffed animal heads on the walls, a faux fireplace, as well as a decal of an open window looking out on a peaceful lakeside view.

My kind of a cubicle.

If it's not on an end cap or on a shelf. It probably isn't for sale. Genius Award Winner.

A Texas woman is now out on bond after sheriff’s deputies said she tried to purchase another woman’s child while waiting in a checkout line at Walmart.

According to a report from KSAT’s sister station KPRC, Rebecca Taylor, 49, came up to the woman’s shopping cart in the checkout line. The woman’s cart had two children inside at the time.

Taylor started to make comments about one of the woman’s two children before allegedly asking if she could buy him for $250,000, KPRC reports.

The mother refused her offer and Taylor pressed further. She increased the offer to $500,000 and allegedly threatened to take the infant, according to the Harris County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies said the mother still refused and was able to leave the store with her children safely. That’s when she notified authorities of what happened.

Some of the EU countries made it illegal to leave your car unattended while defrosting, so it's only a matter of time until that's law in all our progressive blue cities.

To be fair, unattended idling in those cities is more likely to result in a carjacking nowadays, so thankfully, no ticket or fine!

All wealth ought to go to a blind trust. If an elected official wants to own something; full disclosures. How much of their total net worth is it? How many shares? What percentage of the company?

If a legislator owns an index fund or etf, disclose it but that should be no problem---and it still should be in a blind trust that they don't trade.

250 The Russians are not going to invade Ukraine.

They already control eastern Ukraine from the Russian controlled oblasts (regions) in the north to Crimea in the south. These people are of Russian heritage, speak Russian, use the ruble, and report to Moscow. Putin can seed local governments, use paramilitary toughs to intimidate the locals and wind up with a connecting path between his two strongholds without firing a shot.

Also, the administration is filled with losers who want an Afghan do-over. This entire thing is being overblown so they can trumpet Biden's strength when it all blows over.

And seriously, having fought us by proxy for 70 years, does anyone really think Putin wants to get his ass kicked and go out looking like a loser when all he has to do is saber rattle and humiliate Biden in order to look like a hero? Muy unlikely.

320 What Putin really wants is American missile defense systems out of Eastern Europe. He has recently threatened to install Russian nukes in Cuba and Venezuela. He will 'trade' a threat that doesn't currently exist for one that does. This is also what all their war games are about, pressure on Biden because they know he's a pussy despite his fake tough persona. Cuban missile crisis 2.0.

337 The buck does not stop at Mush Brain's desk.

Something salient from earlier in the day -

In July, there was a kerfluffle over a new Alzheimer's drug that would remove the amyloid plaques from the brain. A dysfunction in the brain's ability to remove amyloids is thought to cause alzheimers.

The FDA advisory panel unanimously declined to recommend the drug for approval because although it did remove the plaques, there was no improvement in cognition.
The FDA approved the drug, but advised further studies to show efficacy. This was so controversial that 3 members of the advisory committee quit.

Theory: the fda was pressured to approve the drug so they could use it on FJB.

402 I think Neil Young has anger issues. When Angry Neil shows up, he has no self-control. Jakob Dylan did a sort of documentary about Laurel Canyon and Angry Neil plays a song to himself in a studio toward the end of it.

=======
"Lawyers, Guns, and Money" is my #1 song of his, it always cracks me up. A lot of his songs do, the man had a sardonic wit to go with his eclectic subject matter which kept him off the Top Forty time after time. The only time I really watched the David Endocrine Show was when he was going to be a guest performer. I also liked "Werewolves of London" (who doesn't), "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner", "Accidentally Like a Martyr", "Mister Bad Example", and his version of "Poor Pitiful Me".

491 Speaking of the Neil Diamond song featured tonight on ONT, here's a video clip of Neil on the Johnny Cash Show back when. He and Johnny trade a few lines, then he does "Brother Love's Traveling Salvation Show" and reaches out to the Nashville audience. Powerful and heartwarming, and makes one appreciate the days when that was possible, before the dark times, before the Woke.

He just suddenly turned into an even dumber version of hippie than David Crosby and stuck there.

The simile of "even dumber hippie than David Crosby" is a marvelous work of language. The Wokeists bullied a lot of the leftists into compliance or silence during the previous decade. Some of the old guard protested and got shouted down into silence. Some of them jumped on the bandwagon. Then Trump threw his hat into the ring for the election and a bunch of people lost their ever-loving minds.

575 Hey AOP the foothills around here are said to be so dangerous to climb on because they are made of dessicated granite which is very crumbly.
Does dessicated mean that usually granite has water in it???
Share your magic buddy
Posted by: MAxIE at January 24, 2022 11:27 PM (dVkJu)

Well, I am in Apache Junction right now, and that same sort of weathered granite is all around here. Not so much dessicated as weathered. Some of the minerals making up the original granite have turned to clay under the influence of subtropical rainfall, breaking the intercrystalline bonds, and making it crumbly. The dirt in my yard is mostly just weathered granite, and it is sort of pink, from all the pink potassium feldspar grains.

So, I am reading that the Dana Model 44A rear axles in '87 Grand Cherokees are junk. Any insight?

587 526 "You know who else sent his troops into the Ukraine?"

Only Poland has suffered more. And it's a close second.
=====
Poland owned Ukraine for a couple of centuries and drove the Tartars eastwards. Then they got into a dispute with the Cossacks and lost control of it. The Russians eventually got control of it in Peter the Great's day or thereabouts, I think. The Don flowed on to the sea, Poland disappeared as a nation-state, and both the Cossacks rode and the Peasants toiled for the Little Father.

Back during the original Nintendo craze in the '80s, Sears was a super good source for new games and controllers.

"Those darned Orthodox woods-runners don't know when they have a good thing going!" - some Polish king, probably. The Poles put two puppet tsars on the throne, and the Russians threw off both of them. The second one of them was shot from the mouth of a cannon, just to prove a point Russian-style. And as it turns out in history, the Russians have a long memory for wrongs done, and hold a grudge like they were Scots-Irish.

His basic claim is that vaccines became a big business only after the companies won immunity from lawsuits for children's vaccines, after which the vaccines went from about 8 to around 25 for kids.
The second claim is that the shots are toxic on purpose, since the reaction to the toxins act to boost the immune respnose to the vaccine, and also make kids allergic to other allergens in the environment, like latex or peanuts.
And he claims this is all on purpose to pump the bottom line for the vaccine companies and maintain their monopoly on providing vaccines.

I stopped actively listening to U2 circa 1986. They were still a "rock" band back then. An interview that clued me in that they weren't any longer for me included the assertion that "The record companies want us to be the next The Who--we're not interested in that".

God forbid any record company encourage a band to be a mega world wide entity.

They became one anyway, but not in a way that I enjoy sonically. There's no "grit" to what they've done in the last 30 years.

648 Ya have to notice that they always claim that the deaths of people by people using a gun claim that they could've been prevented. Yet they never say how. Later on or later in the conversation they'll note the bill they've presented somewhere that reduces/restricts 2Amendment rights of some group yet again they do not show any proof or way or reason why that bill will mean fewer deaths by gunshot.

They claim all the time when voting on bills like that that it will mean safer streets, cities, whatever yet they never explain how and no one ever makes them answer that question.

Never.

The parts are all pretty standard and mechanical so they are available (so far) and easy to replace as they are basically sheet metal boxes with plenty of working room. Even the electrical connectors are usually the slide over tab type. What do you get with a modern one? The ability to auto start them at a set time?

667 "If we continue to pursue this universal vaccination strategy in the face of the pandemic, particularly with Omicron now -- a much more highly infectious, highly replication-competent virus -- what we risk is driving the virus through basic evolution to a state where it may be more pathogenic and more able to elude immune response"

that is Dr. Malone. imo he knows 100x about virology than criminal Fauci. Malone was involved in the mRNA stuff early, even if he was not the sole "inventor". Others reveal how Fauci was a fraud from the early days, stealing other's research and profiting from it.

But that point of vaccinating into a pandemic (especially this mRNA type "vaccine") could then produce More Pathogenic versions, not just the milder Omicron types ... that point is the scary part.

From what I understand, we keep training the virus to evade different parts of the immunity (Delta evaded vaccine immunity, natural immunity still mostly held), till it eventually evades natural immunity, and no guarantee it then is still milder ... it could become more deadly. (so especially, don't vaccinate against mild Omicron)

Well, this is the 44A. It has an aluminum housing. The old cast iron Model 44's that were used by nearly everybody at one time were very stout.

And I drained the transfer case. Oil was black, but no filings in it. It's a New Venture 249. But there is a block of plastic, presumably a chain guide, floating around loose on the bottom of the case. Weird.

706 @674; "... hey had a bricks and mortar store in any burg ..."

Midtown Exchange in Minneapolis is a good example of a larger Sears property.

From wiki: "Other adaptively reused Sears warehouses include those in Atlanta (1925), Chicago (1906), Dallas (1910), North Kansas City (1913), and Seattle (1912). Similar sites under construction include the 1927 Sears Mail Order Building in Los Angeles and the Crosstown Concourse (1927) in Memphis."

All gorgeous buildings too.

Real estate holdings were a large reason why Sears survived as long as they did; especially after the Kmart merger. Last twenty years basically turned into a game of selling off buildings one by one for short-term liquidity despite everyone knowing it was only delaying the inevitable.

Well, the Jeep site I read earlier says the 44A with the aluminum housing is the black sheep of the flock. They spec'ed too much preload on the carrier bearings, and early failure was a result. I suspect this is the noise I am hearing.

Yeah, I was thinking of 31" tires. And a modest chassis lift. My buddy has a '95 Grand Cherokee parts vehicle. I think I will snag both the transfer case, and model 35 axle from it (assuming the same axle ratio). If it's not the same ratio, then a master rebuild kit for the 44A would be the next best option, I guess.

Some of the EU countries made it illegal to leave your car unattended while defrosting, so it's only a matter of time until that's law in all our progressive blue cities.

To be fair, unattended idling in those cities is more likely to result in a carjacking nowadays, so thankfully, no ticket or fine!

752 During the '72 fuel crisis it was illegal to leave your car run unattended for longer than 5 minutes. That was as stupid as forcing you to buy gas on odd/even days.

At the time I owned a service station and my customers were able to buy gas when they needed it provided I had product. I was expected to remain open 24 hours regardless, so I closed down at about 10pm, couldn't afford to be open normal hours.

My reward for this was enmity from the gas company and a very loyal customer base who kept me going.

Does the increase in sale price exceed the carrying charges or opportunity cost of buying a thousand dollars worth of forever stamps? You'd have to buy in the period between a price increase announcement and the effective date.

That's beside the point, though. Point being, I already knew I was a California reject, in that I was involved in the shooting sports, hunting and other horrors to the early acolytes of what we now know as "woke".

Being in Texas since '76, well, I'm a Naturalized Texan.

That Canadian trucker convoy thing organized in protest of the vaxecution mandates is now 70km long (40+ miles call it). GoFundMe pulled a funding page for them to buy fuel and supplies calling it a "terrorist action".

I don't know what those tree are but I will disagree that they are larch. Larch (Tamarack) turn a bright beautiful golden yellow in the fall, but by late November they have dropped their needles and look like skeletons.

The Midnight Shift was the best shift. Day shift was all fulla self-serving brass and civic busybodies. Swing shift was Happy Hour drunks, early domestic disturbances, buncha wrecks and shoplifting, etc.

Mid-watch was when the goblins came out to play, and it was for keeps. Which is why one strives to become VERY good with their sidearm. And, I still strive, thus.

I've been watching Hunting Hitler. Very thorough investigative processes ou sed and not at all tinfoil hat IMO.

Green Acres was one of the funniest, and indeed most sophisticated comedy shows of all time. Yes, sophisticated. CBS axed it during the infamous "rural purge".

The surreality of it was just perfection. "Newhart", Bob's second show came close to achieving that level.

971 Green Acres was comedy. At levels both base, and profound.

Newhart was.. something less, pretending towards intellectualism. Dick Cavett Show, undergirding an allegedly comedic plot.

Pretentions towards sophistication aside, Newhart sucked balls, and was a rolling insult to all that didn't "buy in" to the schtick. Fuck the show, fuck the cast, and fuck the schtick.

If you don't have an ice scrapper just start your car and use the defrost feature as well as the rear defrost. SMH.

I've owned more than one car in my southern yoot that had either a bypassed heater core or no blower motor, and rear defrost systems were the height of luxury. Fortunately, we also rarely saw frosted windows.

When I moved from IL, I gave away my snow shovels and ice scrapers.

Speaking of the surreal, has anyone here had a shower head blow out on you? Saturday night, I was taking a shower, in our walk-in shower, with a big ol' head. I was just getting started, with my back turned, getting all wetted down, when I heard a big pop.

Then less, water spray, and the sound of water pouring and hitting the tile floor. Turned around and the damn thing had popped apart. I just fixed it tonight.

It's sort of a clam-shell thing, Moen, el-cheapo plastic. The shell thing threads together, with plastic threads screwing. Water pressure (and there isn't too much pressure, we're on a well) caused the thing to just pop, sideways off the threads. Sort of like it cross threaded. Damndest thing I ever saw.

It would not unscrew all the way to take apart because it had popped off sideways like it was cross-threaded. So I had to just pry it apart. Didn't seem to do any damage, so I cleaned everything up and put it back together.

I suspect it will do it again one of these days, and I'll just a get a better quality one.

1096 Morning, folken,

I'd never heard that live version of the Ventures' "Hawaii Five-O." It lacks the crashing climax of the original TV version, true, but gains the atmospheric sound of -- well, I don't know what to call it. The lead guitar? I don't have the musical vocabulary. I like it, though.

I must be the only person in Da Swamp who has an ice scraper for his windshield, as well as a squeegee and rubber blade for removing condensation the rest of the year. Of course I'm also the one who prepares for winter weather with, what's it called, they're in all the stores? Oh, yeah, a coat or jacket. When I lived in Denver, I had a windshield snow/ice jacket: a big nylon sheet that you tucked into your front doors and kept the snow from actually touching the glass. Dunno if they still make it.

1098 Gloves. Add gloves.... Also keep scraper tool in your car. The credit card trick needs gloves to work. Nothing will freeze your hands faster.

1099 Mentioned here before, Twain's pamphlet on King Leopold II (#3 on the genocide list behind Mao and Stalin) is available at Project Gutenberg, and is quite a read. Scathing satire at its best, and a serious addition to the history of man's inhumanity.

1100 We're trying for 1100? Okay then!

Chekov the Ailing Codger Cat is not doing any better, though not really worse. He doesn't care for his canned food all of a sudden, which means he isn't getting his gabapentin. I've refilled the Rx for the gabapentin paste that goes on his ear, .1 ml, 3x a day. We'll see if that helps any. I'm not sanguine.

He may need a trip to the shop this weekend, and a new kind of Rx food. The current case of food, the one that got delayed by 2 weeks, Chewy refunded me for; so if I have to shift him to something else, I'm not out anything.

1101 Too cool so many morons are hanging out this late
I'd probably be going to bed if girldog hadn't taken over my space. Maybe I'll go eat...or drink...the world is my oyster. Or something.

1103 If I was smart I would be endeavoring to hunt the elusive slimber. In about 4+ hrs i will have a two year old and a four year old peering over the side of the bed requesting pancakes and Looney Tunes. If

1107 Temps in the 40s, which would be okay for a workout, but it's drizzling, which is not. I hate rain blowing past the brim of a baseball cap into my eyes. Maybe I'll have some toast, or a short pipe with my coffee, or something.

Still have one. And found not 2 but 3 ice scrapers under the seat. Also carry extra blankets, first aid kit, tool box, water and spare tire. Last time I broke down was July in the fucken desert. Water pump.

Good Lord, Alan Greenspan is still alive at 95. He'll be 96 in March.

If you want someone to blame for the mess we're in, blame him. He was the Maestro of the Fed sucking Wall Street dick.
