21 Was watching the "Big Bay" fireworks from home for some reason that year. Well, sorta watching - you can see the higher ones from my back porch (and the whole Sea World show, which is in plain view, if miles away).

At show time, I noticed 5 bright flashes in the usual places (they launch from barges that are moored from near the Coronado bridge out to near Shelter Island). Then - nothing. Turned on the radio, in a few minutes the on-air folks got the word that a malfunction had fired everything at once.

Think the contractor promised the city a future show for free, don't know if that ever happened.

47 Good workout at the nearly-empty gym, burned a great cigar on the porch talking to my friend in TX, dinner will be steaks, corn on the cob, and shishito peppers on the grill, with red wine.

In the early years of the show, it was easy to zip down to NTC (now called Liberty Station in its decommissioned/repurposed status), park old school SoCal style (you pull up, turn off your engine - looking for parking wasn't an issue), set a lawn chair on one of the enormous lawns that are now part of a city park, and watch. Still fairly easy to get there/set up, but egress and return trip now victims to crowding, traffic, traffic management. So, hoping she doesn't want to go this year.

If the marine layer holds off, the Sea World show is nice, and clearly visible. Also the local show just east of us is back on, can see the high stuff from the front of the house.

95 Diogenes 10 years ago the bay show had many very easy viewing options involving free parking, easy set up, little to no traffic after. 10 years ago. Now, as I noted above, not so easy.

Actually one year a college friend was in town with his wife-like-person, think she brought big $$ to the situation, they bought tickets on a harbor cruise boat that viewed it all from out on the water. That was truly wonderful. And since few watch from the downtown waterfront, no traffic either. I'd never have thought to do or pay for that, but glad it happened.

A disturbing and voluminous social media trail emerged for the shooter that shows weaponry and an obsession with mass shootings; in 2019, he shared a random video of President Donald Trump's motorcade. Crimo, whose music is under the name "Awake the Rapper," was also photographed at a Trump rally. Another picture showed him with a Trump flag around his shoulders.

136 Friend tragically sold his boat just as I finally got back here. That was the way to see the fireworks on the bay. He actually would moor in Glorietta Bay over on Coronado, next to the SEAL base, a day ahead (it got crowded). Pre-9/11, the Navy did a big day-time show, choppers, divers jumping the water, etc.

Never saw it, but I know it included some pyrotechnics. One July 3 was golfing with 3 strangers at the Coronado course, just as one guy was winding up for his tee shot on 13 (?) - blam! blam! blam! - flash-bangs or something along the shoreline, not far away. Young Navy guy with a radio comes running up, apologizing for being late. They had a guy with a radio at each tee box on the back 9 to give 1-minute warnings of the pyro they were testing for the show next day. Not something one encounters on many golf courses.

My best quote from DS came from the Brit 1st Armored Div FSO. The plan was to leave the 8 inch artillery at home because it would simplify resupply. One less caliber to worry about. But the Arkansas/Tennessee NG got there to support the 18th ABN Corps and they didn't want the heavy arty. So they got chopped to us.
We put them in DS to the Brits.
The FSO told me later "Diogenes. We'd fire our artillery and it was great. But the 8 inch would fire and the whole earth was disrupted!"

254 I kind of think that at this point, endless personal recriminations about the way we voted last year, 10 years ago, etc. are pretty meaningless.

I don't think much of it mattered, in any way.

We were on rails to get to this point. People with more money, power and influence are controlling the outcome. Voting, how quaint! No matter how any of us would have voted in ANY election, we would be at the same point we are at now. It didn't matter.
Pretty much regardless of who you voted for and the reasons (sound and logical though they may have been), it just didn't matter, and it doesn't matter now.
We can't "vote" our way out of this mess we are in, and we can't shoot our way out of if.
If someone has a plan, I would be happy to follow it. But our lives and votes DON'T MATTER.
They stole an election RIGHT IN FRONT OF US, and laugh about it still. What are we doing about it?
Nothing.
Hundreds of our fellow citizens that did nothing more than show up in DC on Jan 6th are either in jail or awaiting a show trial to convict them, with no bond posted.
It didn't matter, and still doesn't matter. DeSantis, Trump, yeah, wait until 2024. We'll show them.

280 No one voted *for* Romney. There was no "Romney-ism", no "Romney Doctrine", or any other such thing as to draw people and their votes, to him or his cause. (narrator voice: "he didn't have a cause")

No, all of our votes for the S.O.B. were rear-guard actions, hoping to stave off Ohnihilation and the curse of a second Lightbringer Term.

All that said, I'm not sure that Romney's loss wasn't the actual test-drive of The Steal, Mk.1 Mod0. Ohbummer's poll numbers were nearly as bad as FJBs, and he somehow pulls out a win? Was skeptical then, remain so, now.

Only because we let them. We - everyone of us - have let the progressives have their say in the culture and in education. You're right that voting harder won't get us out of this. And nothing may get us out of it without some very bad times ahead.

But what WILL matter is evangelizing and indoctrinating* our neighbors and our children (especially) into Christian morals and Americanism. There's a reason John Adams said "Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." We have to return the electorate, in general, to a state of self-governance - a freedom in responsibility, not license.

Do that, and we can get our republic back.

(* Indoctrination has taken on a bad meaning because of progressivism. All it means is to instill proper doctrine in someone. And, since doctrine is the proper exposition of your worldview, if you believe your worldview is correct you should be all for instilling it in others.)

Nah. Beyond a certain grade, parking is always perpendicular. First, you can fit a lot more cars in. Second, it is much more difficult to parallel park, facing up or down, beyond a certain grade. Of course, you have to open the car door against the usual flow of gravity, but that's much easier to deal with.

295 Ironically, what made Biden possible was that Trump did too good a job. The country was doing great. Full employment across all demographics, during economy, soaring stock market, no new wars, peace in the Middle East and on and on. He made it all look so simple a career DC failure who campaigned in his basement could do as well.

Until he didn't.

Despite what the media says more than half the country already believes the 2020 election was riddled with corruption. And they hate Biden despite the media pimping for him. Every single thing is not just worse under Biden but catastrophically worse. He has the worst approval ratings of any modern president bar none.

Not optimism, reality.

Cheating is only plausible when the circumstances allow. Trump was vilified for 4 years and so were all his supporters. His record of frankly unmatched accomplishments in one term were drowned out by fake scandals and of course the China virus.

It was obvious to us and even many who wouldn't admit it that the Democrats cheated but everyone was doing great and people were tired of drama so whatever.

Is everyone doing great now? Is the country happy with what the Democrats have done? Does anyone really believe that the lowest rated president since WWII and his garbage party which has given us $5/gallon gas and no empty shelves is going to make anyone's life better? Herpes has a better approval rating.

Fucking around is easy when times are good. Not so much when the country is imploding.

Not sure how Congress has any say in that, its a LEGAL issue. Until the DOJ prosecutes him, and convicts him, of Insurrection.... then who cares?"

Why Righteous Americans didn't deploy the fire axes and baseball bats and sledgehammers on those panes of glass RIGHT THEN, still flummoxes me, today.

Same standard should apply to any Counting Station. Zero Tolerance. And anyone showing up in a Buick with a trunk full of "ballots"? The whole lot of 'em get sunk down in the quarry, just as fast as the flatbed can carry 'em. Buick, ballots, bastard and all.

Trump has been stumping for candidates for Congress, governors offices and state elected offices for the last year. And doing pretty damn well.

It doesn't get covered much, even here, but he is something like 100 - 5. They are all America First types to varying degrees even if they aren't all perfect. He is working harder than any politician in my lifetime to turn this thing around and it's fucking pitiful that he doesn't get more credit and support from our side.

There are a lot more than just Trump, DeSantis, Tucker and few in Congress. If things go well this Fall there will be a shitload more in Congress and hopefully even more influenced to follow.

362 2020 was stolen in a few precincts in six states. They will not be able to cheat that way again, much the same way as no one will ever again be able to hijack an airliner with a box cutter. They'll have to come up with a new plan. Yes, I'm an optimist and will remain so until I'm in the ground.
Posted by: Duke Lowell at July 04, 2022 09:48

Indeed Duke. They try to make the idea that the election was stolen some crazy right idea. My response...please explain why counting stopped in 6 swing states simultaneously when Trump was leading and then resumed with Biden leading? WTF?

J and I actually saw some vote totals reduced for Trump before the final tally. I suppose this post may get me on a list somewhere, well f... that, this is Independence Day.
