9 Biden continues to blame Russia for high gas prices while he continues to drive prices up.


National Economic Council Chairman Brian Deese spoke with CNN Thursday afternoon just hours after President Joe Biden told reporters that the public should expect prices to remain at their current level for "as long as it takes" for Ukraine to win the war against Russia.

>>Meanwhile NY continue to pass laws to hinder legal gun owners.

Apparently, the SCOTUS ruling allowed for restrictions in "sensitive areas," so NY simply carved out all mass transportation, parks, government facilities, schools, churches and businesses have to affirmatively allow for carry into their establishments.

So essentially they've nullified the SCOTUS ruling.

Guiteau entered a plea of not guilty by reason of insanity, arguing that the assassination had been "God's act and not mine." He even claimed that the true cause of Garfield's death was malpractice at the hands of his doctors. "I deny the killing, if your honor please," he announced at one point. "We admit the shooting."

Guiteau had a point -- many historians now believe that Garfield would have lived if not for the limitations of 1880s medicine -- but his insanity plea failed to convince the jury, which took less than an hour to return a guilty verdict.

76 Gunsmoke started out as a Radio program. None of the actors were hired for the TV program. Both ran concurrently for a while.

On the Radio program Doc was played by Howard McNear, better known as "Floyd" the barber on Andy Griffith. Having heard most of them, I can say Marshall Dillon never missed, and never got hit, and always killed whomever he shot at. I can't recall anyone on the Radio episodes who was merely wounded. Always DRT.

109 Radio was relatively small compared to Movie and later, TV. About a half a dozen guys and gals were in every radio program, seems like. Cannon was one of them. His voice always seemed la little forced to me, like he was talking an octave lower or whatever. It's distinctive, and can always tell it's him.

Miss Kittly was played by a pretty hot babe on the Radio program, Amanda Blake sounded just like her. I think the TV execs just wanted a clean slate. Cannon was not happy. You can hear him advertising for the new TV show on some episodes - "be sure to tune in, I know you'll like it", without mentioning it won't be him in the starring role. That had to really hurt.

Well cops usually carry 15 round mags so 6 cops emptying their handguns would get you to 90.

Conrad was always kind of husky. If you catch his performance in The Killers w/ Burt Lancaster, you'll see he was hefty (ca. 194, but not fat.

I always thought he would have made a good Nero Wolfe, and of course he did play the role in about 1981. True Wolfe fans hate that series, and it wasn't a patch on the later one with Tim Hutton, but Conrad's voice and presence was excellent.

I told the boss when I asked for the job that it would be part time and I might have to take the day off on short notice on some occasions to take care of my disabled wife.

He's a born again Christian and before hiring me, thanked me for "honoring" my wife by placing her first above the job.

So far, the work has been easy, except for later in the day when it starts getting hot and I start lagging. But it pays for my tool collection fetish and greens fees.

Why he was stopped has not been revealed and why he took off is another mystery along with why he ran on foot until he was shot repeatedly and handcuffed? The entire story is crazy.

Thanks for weighing in. Your work experience on the tree farm sounds brutal and the owner of the farm said that it would be hot, heavy work and he took him around the perimeter of the farm. On the other hand he'd probably get in shape quickly (he's a little chunky even though he runs every other day) and the air conditioned places (supermarkets) are not calling him so I hope he'll get this. The guy who owns the farm went to the same school the boy is accepted to, Maybe that will help.

199 Cops shot someone 60 times in Ohio. Police you MUST get in front of this. I saw the cute youth picture of the shootie yesterday. Get this guys latest mug shot out into circulation. Start prettying up any and all body camera footage. Do not let BLM or any other group control the narrative. I think he was pulled initially for a traffic violation and sped off shooting at police. Do not shoot at police.

They are releasing the body cam footage tomorrow at noon. The kid had a gun and fired at least two shots at the cops while they were chasing him. He dropped the gun in the car and tried to get away on foot, that's when they went medieval on him apparently.

207 I... uh... what?

The idea, known as the “independent legislature theory,” represents to some theorists a literal reading of the Constitution.
But in its most far-reaching interpretation, it could cut governors and state courts out of the decision-making process on election laws while giving state lawmakers free rein to change rules to favor their own party. The impact could extend to presidential elections in 2024 and beyond, experts say, making it easier for a legislature to disregard the will of its state’s citizens.

This immense power would go to legislative bodies that are themselves undemocratic, many advocates say, because they have been gerrymandered to create partisan districts, virtually ensuring the party-in-power’s candidates cannot be beaten. Republicans control both legislative chambers in 30 states and have been at the forefront of pushing the theory.

This is because Democrat governors and judges keep trying to stop voter ID requirements, which 80 percent of voters want.

In Michigan, the GOP legislature put bills up that make basic reforms and of course the governor vetoed them.

The Michigan Constitution provides that the governor's veto can be overridden via petition drive, which is what is moving forward. This was done last year to repeal the Emergency Powers law Whitmer used to create a perpetual dictatorship.

So yeah, big threat to democracy.

Good luck to your son on getting the farm job.

My oldest had her 4 days of training for her summer STEM mentorship job for a 9-12th "1st time to college" prep camp. To say just showing up on time will put her in the top 1/2 of employees is an understatement.

She desired a job that was only 1/2 the summer. It seems her job site might have had the problems of JHU gifted and talented camps. When you can earn money all summer, you don't want the half summer job, so you cancel or get what you get.

That said, she loves it and is excited for the 3 week FT camp (so it was about 4 weeks of FT work), and I think she's a shoe in for next summer (before we have her look for internships the following year - aka, the year before graduation). She likes being able to go on family vacay, work, and still have some summer.

Funny enough, it worked out for the best. She had interviews for 3 camp jobs weeks prior to getting this one, and they all turned her down for one reason or the other (never working camps before was probably the big one). They would have all been the full summer and not STEM (when she's a science major), so it did ultimately work out for the best for exactly what she wanted (although the 7:30am onsite start is gonna be rough in July, since I hear everything in this house).

So, if he doesn't get the job (but I hope he does), there may be a better one around the corner if he keeps trying for them...

I'm so sorry about your mom. Sincere prayers to you and your family. I was with my mom the moment she passed. It is an acutely painful experience that I'll never forget. Part of me is very thankful I was there, part of me wishes I wasn't because it's very traumatic. Perhaps your mom wanted to spare you that pain.

283 Good luck, FenSon.

When I was a teenager I spent a couple of summers picking canteloupes. It was hard work but the old man that owned the farm paid pretty good.

There were about a half a dozen boys and we would climb on the trailer behind the old man on the tractor to ride out to the field. One morning on the way out he ran over a bee hive in the weeds that he had forgotten about. Needless to say the bees were not happy. Everybody abandoned ship, including the old man, and the tractor turned circles for about an hour until it stalled out.

That's what would make this a really fascinating situation, if you were an alien who didn't have to live through it. If you raise interest rates, the cost on the debt will destroy this country financially. If you don't raise interest rates, Inflation will destroy this country financially.

362 To the guy that always says ..yeah buddy...I was not with my father when he passed, he was not alert or awake, but still i wish I was there....It would have not made a lick of difference, but just knowing that I might have made a difference, well I dont know.. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with you....in your time of troubles know that the hoard is behind you..as they have helped me over a few rough patches....like the time I wanted to eat my gun...but imput from the hoard and the cobs helped me realize the truth... Life is good, and continues with or without you...it might as well go on WITH you, huh?

364 274 The percentage of street coke which is spiked to a fatal level with fentanyl is widely known.

Even Pot is laced with Fentanyl. A couple of years ago, my late friend's son and his buddy were found dead in his house, sitting side by side with a half burned joint between them on the couch cushion. Subsequent analysis showed there was enough Fentanyl in the marijuana cigarette to kill four people.
