The Quotes of The Day


Quote I
NSFW
"I loved being around people who seemed to be so confident and carefree. It made me realise that a body is just a body. It's a vessel that we live inside of. Social media star Kate, known as @fullplatekate

And you think being a Cob is nothing but fun and games with wonderful dental.

Quote II

“CPAC is proud to host Prime Minister Viktor Orban. The fight against socialism is a global one,” American Conservative Union (ACU) Chairman Matt Schlapp


Quote III

Congressman Cleaver has been a deep disappointment — relentlessly partisan and AWOL on the issues that matter most to his constituents. When Josh took on the scumbag absentee landlords in Kansas City preying on the most vulnerable, Cleaver wouldn’t lift a finger to help despite repeated outreach. But he’s happy to hobnob with Washington lobbyists.” Spokesperson Abigail Marone

Quote IV

"This is really, really stupid. His vision for an amendment allows for abuse that would effectively remove all limitation from the federal government. He’s even got a special carve out for thought crime,"musician Phil Labonte

Quote V

Mitt Romney is like a hemorrhoid: easily forgotten when it stays in it's place, infinitely irritating when it decides to make it's presence felt.Matthew Noto

The US keeps printing money. Sooner or later math will hit the fan. Will the USA look like this?

In Sri Lanka right now, before you've woken up, you're losing.

Power cuts that run late into the sweltering nights steal hours of sleep as the fans cease; whole families waking up sapped from the months-long trial of shuffling their lives around daily blackouts after the country went bankrupt and essentially ran out of fuel.

There are long days to be lived; work days, errands to be run, daily essentials to be bought at twice the price they had been last month.

You mean American prisons are kinder and gentler? Boo-fucking-hoo.

Women’s basketball star Brittney Griner is living a life of privation, according to the brother of an American imprisoned in a Russian jail.

On Thursday, the former Olympian and Phoenix Mercury center pleaded guilty to the drug possession and smuggling charges against her.

“I’d like to plead guilty, your honor. But there was no intent. I didn’t want to break the law,” Griner said, according to Reuters. “I’d like to give my testimony later. I need time to prepare.”

A rightwing anti-doping dog put those hashish laden vaping pens in my luggage your Honor.

It's been a while since I featured one of her videos. It's always interesting to hear what the pre-29 crowd thinks. Or is it?

Most school boards consist of a good old boys/girls club. And how dare you rankle their feathers. Loudoun County School Board didn't do so well in court.

The Loudoun County School Board has just lost their bid in court to shut down the grand jury investigation into their mishandling of a sexual assault of two different students at two different high schools by a 15-year-old.

The judge felt that the leftist school board had not proven their argument that they would suffer irreparable harm because of the investigation:

The only ones who suffered irreparable harm are the young ladies they allowed to be raped while they were practicing their virtue signaling.

The Future WHO (World Health Organization)

"The alarming amendments offered by the Biden Administration to the WHO's International Health Regulations would grant new unilateral authority to [WHO] Director-General Tedros to declare a public health crisis in the United States or other sovereign nations, without any consultation with the U.S. or any other WHO member. Specifically, the Biden Amendment would strike the current regulation that requires the WHO to 'consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the State Party in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring in,' ceding the United States' ability to declare and respond to an infectious disease outbreak within the United States, dependent on the judgment of a corrupt and complicit UN bureaucracy." — Rep. Chris Smith, ranking member of the House Global Health Subcommittee, May 18, 2022.


More bureaucracy to fvck things up biggly.

Maybe I'm being too judgmental. But, perhaps working for Domino's is not a lucrative full-time career. Just sayin'.

'$13 an hour to put up with the sh*t that we have to put up with is not worth it.'

You should probably talk to someone at your company who can do something rather than social media. But, that's me.

I guess there are different definitions of "Floaters".

tate officials propose installing a “SCAT machine” to dispose of human waste at the Smith River takeout as they implement new rules for floaters.

The Montana State Parks and Recreation Board in May adopted several new rules for floating the Smith River. Among them is a requirement that floaters collect and pack out human waste in approved commercial devices.

Labor Unions Reduce Product Quality


A very nice paper in Management Science by Kini, Shen, Shenoy and Subramanian finds that labor unions reduce product quality. Two strengths of the paper. First, the authors have relatively objective measures of product quality from thousands of product recalls mandated by the FDA, the Consumer Product Safety Commission and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration covering many different industries. Second the authors use 3 different methods. First, they find that unionized firms are more likely to have recalls than non-unionized firms (a simple difference in means subject to many potential cofounds but I still like to see the raw data), second they find that in a panel model with industry and year fixed effects and other controls that firms which are more unionized have a greater frequency of product recalls. Finally they find that firms where the union just barely won the vote are more likely to have subsequent product recalls than firms for which the union just barely lost the vote–a regression discontinuity study.

LOS ANGELES — A week ahead of Major League Baseball’s All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium, the union representing concession workers at the ballpark announced today it has authorized a strike that “could be called at any moment.”

Maria Hernandez, a spokeswoman for the Unite Here Local 11 union, said in a statement that stadium food and beverage workers voted by a 99% margin Sunday to authorize a walkout.

We've all done some stupid things. But what is worse, doing the stupid act or telling the whole world?

man has been left a little red faced and red arsed after using toilet cleaning wipes instead of loo roll.

Leon Gleed, 29, suffered soreness in an intimate area after using the antibacterial wipes from Tesco.

He didn’t realise that they were actually meant to be used to clean the toilet, not his backside, causing a Johnny Cash moment.

44 Unions are complete poison. There's a union where I work, and it's every negative stereotype possible.

Actually talented employees hate the union because it prevents them from getting paid what they are actually worth - because their pay is locked to the union rate the company literally CANNOT pay them more, no matter how much better their performance than others.

Meanwhile the union spends 90% of its time fighting to keep the absolute bottom of the barrel trash from getting fired for cause.

Important safety tip: When you go to another jurisdiction, do some research on the laws of that jurisdiction, especially for things your home jurisdiction is lenient on or ignores. There will usually be signs like "importation of drugs into this country is illegal"

Also, if you possess something that may cause you trouble in another jurisdiction, make sure that you only ever put that into a specific bag.

I imagine he's too stupid to even be aware of the "positive rights/negative rights" debate of the 30's. (And using positive/negative is unfortunate framing, but that's the terms that were used so we're stuck with it) Put very briefly, the Bill of Rights is a list of "negative rights" - these are restrictions on government, things that they Government may NOT do. For nearly 100 years, leftists have longed for a "bill of positive rights", things that the Government MUST do. Left unsaid is that requiring Govm't to do those things necessitates giving the government absolute power over everyone and every thing so that it can do them.

And that's more thought and analysis than Michael Moore ever put into his own idiot amendment.

80 There was a time when unions made sense. Then labor law happened, and they turned to institutional corruption to justify their existence. All downhill from there.

Re: teachers, the problem there is that "union scale" is terrible for STEM types with valuable technical skills but really fantastic for non-STEM humanities types whose only other viable job prospect is flipping burgers. So the more ambitious/motivated ones go into the union and jealously defend their turf, ensuring continued dysfunction.

If the usual types of deodorants give you rashes or you're worried about the amount of aluminum in most anti-perspirants, you may want to try what are called crystal or rock crystal deodorants. Deodorant only, not an anti-perspirant.

Some info:
Crystal deodorant is a type of alternative deodorant made of natural mineral salt called potassium alum, also known as potassium aluminum sulfate. It has been shown to have antimicrobial properties.

Potassium alum has been used as a deodorant in Southeast Asia for hundreds of years. Crystal deodorant has become more popular in Western cultures in the last 30 years.

Also, it is inexpensive.

After about 2 months of that, he eventually started bringing coffee a and biscuit for me, but still talked to me like a dog.

He cussed me out in front of my customers, but I just laughed, because I deserved it. It was a mutual understanding, I sucked at working Saturday mornings and we both understood I deserved a good cussing.

I agree, I think our win is now inevitable. But everyone should be aware, so they won't be surprised when it happens - we are voting so that we have our people in positions of power when the rebuilding starts. It is now far, far too late to avoid the collapse; this ship has already hit the iceberg, and as Yon says, we have at least two years (probably more) of worldwide famine and economic depression to go through no matter what we do right now, or in November. It's just too late to make any significant course corrections now, and the only way out is through.

I do hope we can avoid another world war, but that's going to be mainly up to luck and Providence.

2) I said 3 to 700, 3 was a bad week 700 plus a bout 300 in wage last I checked was closer to 50 thou a year.

I call my brother, Mr Style, who is a contractor, and I ask hey bro, whats a good toilet these days. His answer- American standard Champion 4. I said yeah but its rather plain looking, I want something nice looking like I had in the old house. He says its a toilet, you're gonna sit down and shit in it. Yup, a lot of help there.

Make sure to get one with a standard flush system. We've got Kohler toilets in our house. One doesn't seem to be flushing well, so I looked in the tank. Discovered that Kohler has its own proprietary flush system, so I can't just run to Home Depot and pick up a universal flapper.

295 HHS officials said the guidelines make clear that EMTALA pre-empts state abortion bans without exceptions to protect pregnant women’s life and health. They pointed to examples in the guidelines indicating when a woman requires emergency stabilization, such as ectopic pregnancy [nobody is saying ectopics can't be treated], complications of pregnancy loss [The pregnancy is already lost, therefore not viable so not an abortion] and preeclampsia with severe features [almost universally happens after viability, no need to murder the baby].

296 103 In my burg McDonald’s pays MORE than 1st year teachers. $18 an hour vs $35k. Of course the teachers work fewer hours and get bennies. But still a full time McDs worker would make $36k a year, vs $35k.

But don't underestimate the importance of benefits. Having health insurance and money paid into a pension fund matters, and isn't cheap. When I would sign my yearly contract, it would list three items, the salary, the cost of medical insurance, and the amount of money paid into the pension fund for that year. Then the 3 were totaled, so that you saw what your true compensation was.

I have friends and relatives who are public school teachers, they get raises every year and their income grows past that early starting salary pretty fast.

334 288 Crystal deodorant is a type of alternative deodorant made of natural mineral salt called potassium alum, also known as potassium aluminum sulfate. It has been shown to have antimicrobial properties.

Potassium alum has been used as a deodorant in Southeast Asia for hundreds of years. Crystal deodorant has become more popular in Western cultures in the last 30 years.

Also, it is inexpensive.

Nope, didn't miss that. I use the stuff because several years ago the stuff I'd used for years, and everything else on the drug store shelves, began giving me a severe underarm rash. A dermatologist suggested the mineral crystal stuff. I included the concern about aluminum in the traditional stuff because some people are concerned about a lot of aluminum combined with the other typical ingredients. Karen-types, I guess.

Toto toilets can get clogged, of couse. Less susceptible to clogging than most of the toilets installed by builders and sold at Home Depot. In my experience. Whatever brand or model you buy, here's a tip from my plumber for dealing with all of the 1.6 gallon units: One flush for your business, a second flush for the paper.

Got an LG fridge/freezer here, going four years strong, so far. Bottom, pull out freezer, with a separate "top shelf", so it's divided into an upper and lower section. Side by Side doors, but they open to reveal a full-width interior, vs. a "side-by-side" divided compartments.

Spoke with some repair folks before buying. LG's appliances have far more robust metal moving parts (ice augur, for example), than the Samsung models, which have very few metal parts in critical areas.

So far, the only LG part in the kitchen suite that's failed, was one power burner control on the stove. Bought the $35 part from eBay, was about a 20 minute job to swap it out.

Some dipshit on a dirt bike plowed into him, and fucked him up big time. Broke a leg which may have to be amputated, and cause internal injuries, possible brain damage. Biker fucked off. A local farmer came by, found the guy lying on the road, unresponsive, and performed CPR until the ambulance arrived. He was airlifted to Red Deer, and then again to Edmonton, and is being kept in an induced coma for now. I just found out today.

Handcuff key: I used to stash a strong, big paperclip in the little pocket on the sleeve on the bicep of my flight jacket, where you can reach with your teeth, when I was a hoodlum.

487 Best "concealed" handcuff key I ever saw was in a cop museum.

It was the behind the tie part of a rather nice tie-clip.

I doubt one in ten cops would discover it in an initial search. Check-in at the jail *might* find it, if they're particularly observant. But either way, into the gallon ziploc bag it'd go. Once the mook "goes orange", nothing he/she brought through the Sally Port should make it down the hall and into the cells.

523 I like the idea of dragging the biking perp with a Harley.

Better still, I like the idea of Four Harleys, quartering the miserable bastard.

He strikes one, that's an "accident". Two in one night, and that's Enemy Action. Use H-D Servi-Cars. They had a super low 1st gear, almost a "granny gear".

No one said you had to do a dragrace launch to apply tension to the convicted. Slow and steady not only wins the race, but prolongs the agony, too.

He owes me (several) beers at the Boatyard in Annapolis. He's also a USNA graduate, so while he's showing me around, I'll get a chance to steal Pochhammer's memoirs from the Academy library.

Posted by: Bulgaroctonus at July 12, 2022 12:45 AM (rzOL9)

563 I've cooked aplenty on both gas and electric. Both have strengths and weaknesses.

Glasstop electric, it's easy to moderate the heat, even if "low" ain't low enough. Just slide the pot halfway or more off the offending burner, and you're regulating the number of heated square inches, and not just the straight up BTU of that particular burner.

Gas is easier to turn down to almost uselessly low heat levels. Electric glasstop is easier to clean-up.

Old fashioned electric coils are ob de debbil doh, and do not belong in a modern kitchen.

It's up to the cook to learn the nuances of the cooker in question, and to adapt his/her game to the new rules on the field. "Guest Cook" at someone else's house, and you'll learn this in short order, or you'll fail.

Well the river was in high flood condition, way over its normal level. Morrin bridge was crowded with gawkers. Semi truck with fuel tanker came down the hill on the west side, fast. Driver knew he could not stop, and would kill several people if he went onto the bridge. So he took the ditch, and went right on into the river, never to be seen again. Driver was a hero, but he paid with his life. I am guessing the rig was carried a number of miles downstream, came to rest somewhere, and then current scour opened up a hole on the downstream side, and the rig tumbled in, and was subsequently buried. A magnetometer survey might locate it. i don't know if it has ever been attempted.

Posted by: Yudhishthira's Dice

$20 isn't that much (well, if you're not broke) and the emotional value of returning it outweighs it. OTOH, $3k+ is, well, holy shit, three thousand dollars? Hoo boy. Ummmm.... Man! Dang! I need that three thousand dollars....

Dad was on a pureed diet before he died because he had trouble with swallowing and would get pneumonia from aspirating food. It took a lot of joy out of his life.

I make fruit and yogurt smoothies for breakfast, I have since I broke my shoulder and needed fiber for the pain meds, calcium for the bone healing, and energy because it hurt too much to cook and I lost a lot of money rebuilding bone.

It is also watermelon season so I am running watermelon chunks through my blender to juice it which I like better than eating watermelon.

Also with a freshly laid egg, Mum would make a smallish hole at one end and I got to suck a raw egg almost every morning from toddler till about 4. The owner of the 4-apartment building was also present at my at-home birth and had a thing for the baby and also had chickens. She brought an egg every morning. Now the incentive for me was that when the eggshell was empty, it got filled about a quarter way with sweet Marsala. Yes, boozing so young. It put hairs on my chest.

Exactly. Classic Griswald cast iron works fine. Modern Lodge brand sucks bawls. But can be fixed.

Take any cast iron pot or pan to a machine shop, and have 'em "surface" the bottom. Yeah, you might lose some vintage stampings, but that pot'll now work like a champ on your glass.

One warning though. Don't "drag" your cast iron on the glass, you'll scratch the glass. Lift it up, set it down. Don't slide it. And yes, cast iron IS the superior cooking implement.

There were similar cast iron pots with handles for cooking over an open fire here, too. Made all day stews and the like in them. But not too many fireplaces today have the room or equipment in them for hanging a cooking pot like that.

Well in Rome (1954-56) we had a brand new cooker, wood fired, that in winter was used for stove-top cooking, oven and had a built-in container for hot water. It also warmed up the kitchen where we lived. The bedrooms were cold and only used for sleeping. In summer we used a small table-top gas burner with two rings. It snowed in Rome winter of 55. Unusual. That was the first snow that I can remember. Butter was kept ice-cold on the windowsill.

The only place here in 'youngun' America that I've seen that had real fireplaces for cooking was in Williamsburg VA's Historic District. My Grandma had a wood-burning cast iron stove. It had about a two-inch deep double-eyelet griddle (which I now proudly own) with a lip that fitted down into the stove and made the best damn pancakes. I still make pancakes on it (over two gas burners) but, alas, they aren't Grandma's in taste. My Mom warned me I'd better use that griddle for cooking and not make a wall hanging out of it or she'd take it back. Also good for sausage and peppers and onions, with sausage on one end and peppers and onions on the other.

This new stove down here in Miley's house is a glass top, with infrared elements. That thing is damned impressive in heat-up time.

It amazed me the first time I used this big old "soup pot" of my mother's. On her stove, there are hot spots on the elements. This would necessitate watchin and stirring something, and even using low heat.

I found those infrared elements could heat a batch of soup ingredients wide ass open uniformly. No hot spots, although one still needed to stir to keep the temp equalized.

Must be. I'm fer the equitable distribution of heat in a pot.

That cut-off corn is another that needs to be stirred. And I found I couldn't heat it wide open either. It'll start sticking before you know it, some varieties of corn worse than others. Can't get over medium, and even then stir, stir. Lower and you don't have to stir so much, but it takes a long time. Once it gets hot enough, you can increase the heat a little to get it on up to simmering temp. Don't know exactly know the chemistry afoot there.

My parents, born in '27 and '30 tell about their days as young 'uns. It was common chore for children of a certain age to keep the kitchen firewood box fully stocked at all times.

If mama needed some firewood, and they had failed to keep the box filled, they were in trouble. Both of 'em recount getting a whuppin' for that.

My mother recounts how their stove had a water heater vessel as well. Hot water always available with one of those. Also "warmer drawers", little compartments to keep food warm. There were not in the full heat zone, so off to the side or something.

694 When I was doing kitchens and baths we did a kitchen in a house that was built in 1874. It was a 2 family house, and this kitchen was on the 2nd floor. It had an old...old ass stove that was mint. Gas on gas. It was 2 tone, tan center with darker brown edges. It was beautiful. It was so frigging heavy we couldn't lift it, 100's of pounds, and no way was it going down the stairs, but it had to go. I tried for 2 hours to get it apart, but every bolt I needed to remove was inside and rusty. They wouldn't budge. We had to sledgehammer it into pieces. We stared at it for an hour, my brother couldn't bring himself to hit it, and me either. We wanted to save it sooo bad, but it wasn't in the cards. Don't know how old it was, but it was ancient. I still can't believe we had to bust it up.

I think it was assembled up there piece by piece, built on the job so to speak. Its the only way. The nearest I can gather is it was no newer than early 1920's. It was right at the time the challenger exploded, I mean during that job. The women who owned the house lived downstairs, her sister up stairs. They were born and grew up in that house, and were in their mid- upper 60's, and that stove was always there, so it couldn't have been any newer than 1920 or so. It looked older, it had the curved legs.

Host had a separate kitchen building, feet from the house. Warm, from the fire. His wife was making cheese bread (khachapuri) in big cast iron forms, set right in the coals of a huge fireplace (the char on the bread was amazing). Host brings jugs of homemade wine, red and white, with wax seals for caps.

The room was getting a big anderson window, so we waiting until we framed for the new window and hoisted the shower up to the second floor and brought it in that way.

Funny incident back the mid '80s. My paternal grandmother was in the nursing home. Every year, early Dec., we'd have a family get together thing at the church, having a big dinner in the "fellowship building". We'd bring my grandmother too.

After we'd all eaten, everyone was sitting around, telling stories. My father and his brothers were sitting around, telling how hard they worked, and how us young-un's didn't know what work was. We'd been spoiled, and wouldn't last a day doing what they used to all day long. (And they were right, really).

So, my father pipes up during that conversation, and tells about his first patch of cotton. When he was a young man, 'bout young Publius' age, a little older (call him 20 or so), he planted him a 5 acre patch of cotton.

And he told how he plowed that cotton. And hoed it. He hoed a 5 acre patch of cotton, all by himself.

"Yep, yep, yep" all the brothers went. Nodding. Now my grandmother was sitting around in that bunch. She didn't seem like she was paying much attention, sort of staring off into space, but she spoke up.

He could have been William Boyce's (BSA founder) piss boy for all I know, and just stayed involved. As I said before, our troop was fucking nuts. They trained us like it was the military. Mountain climbing, repelling, survival trips, building monkey bridges over rivers, 70 mile kayak trips, snow shoe this, cross country ski that, etc. No crossing granny in the cross roads shit, nooo we go to Mt washington and repel down cliffs.

755 Women did all that with a system, and you'd better get the hell out of the way when she's in action. Home economics was a real thing, and the ladies who knew it could do it. I think I kind of bridge that gap between ancient and new that way. Mom used cloth diapers, grew a huge garden and canned food, hung the laundry out to dry, shopped for best pricing at least two grocery stores, could make one roast last a week, all that jazz, and she learned it from her mom who cooked on a wood stove (until Grandpa moved the house up hill when they put in the road, then she got gas), made her own butter from the skimmed cream, had flour in a bin and butter in a cool cabinet in the wall. I'm canning smoked salmon just now, it's nearly done and then I'm off to bed. You need to know addition before you can multiply...

My grandmother then told about Daddy's first patch of cotton. Yep, it was a 5 acre patch. But he had a lot of help with that. Her, my granddaddy, and some of the field hands. She recounted how she herself hoed some of his cotton.

I remember the look on my father's face. He couldn't say anything, 'cause that was his momma, correctin' him.

Later on, he told me, "Now, your grandmother just doesn't remember right -- I did hoe that cotton my ownself". I said, "Uh huh, I'm sure you did." He gave me a look.

That was just....priceless.

I can remember my paternal grandmother, as a little boy, making biscuits. She'd do that all day. Biscuits for breakfast, dinner, and supper.

Around here, in the old days, "dinner" was the noon meal. It was the biggest. Supper was the evening meal, not as big.

I'll tell you another funny one about my father and his mother. After my father broke his hip, oh when was that? -- I can't remember for sure, when he got back home, he was in need of assistance. With basic hygiene concerns, I'll say.

His mind hadn't slipped as much then. Having to have me help with that stuff, well, that was really too much. He's always been a very independent type, and having me having to do that just killed him.

He had a bad accident one night, and I had to some disgusting cleanup. Again, his mind was still there enough to be very embarrassed. He said, "Well, hell, I used to have to change your diapers, so I guess it's payback time". Or something like that. [cont]

Now, when he said that, my mother was close by, and I saw a look on her face. A mean, mad look. You don't see those too much on my mother's face, so it was noteworthy.

She came up and whispered in my ear, "He didn't change one diaper of yours! Wouldn't even help!" She was sort of steaming, you might say.

She related a funny story. When I was a little baby, one night she had to go somewhere for a few hours. Something important. So, she had to leave me with my father. She was worried about, you know, diaper changing and stuff. She went through the procedures. He assured her "Woman, I know what I'm doin'!" and shit like that.

Well she got home, not knowing what kind of mess she might find, and there she found me, little baby, with a perfectly changed, perfectly pinned, etc, diaper.

The little worm of a kitten has been doing them since I got up.

It looks as though he'll be the only kitten for a while. Chekov's breeder has some cute kittens on her Facebook page. I've written to ask if she could put my name down for one in particular. No reply, and the next day a note appeared on that kitten's pic, "Not available." This from the lady who told me I would get first pick of the late March litter after Chekov passed away. So far, no communication. I guess she doesn't want to sell me a kitten.

Not an admirer of what Trump accomplished, I take it.

While Cocaine Mitch got the SCOTUS nominees through the Senate, it was Trump who nominated them in the first place.

812 Now the cats on the mantelpiece are the two baby grays, Eva and Wally, the two adult cats having retired for sleep or whatever. The babies are still looking at the ceiling but I can't see anything. They have much better eyes and no cataracts.

813 I've decided I need to cut the pipe smoking way way down. Four times a week is too much, coming atop the mild case of the coof. I'm finding my workouts in the early morning to be even tougher than usual. Yes, it's nasty hot; yes,I'm a bit over 29. But though I don't inhale the pipe smoke, still it may be having an effect on my wind.

I've been a runner, and now walker-runner, for too many years to give it up now.

I hope you don't mind my asking and you don't have to answer but, why not get one from a shelter? All ours over the years have been either caught in our yard or from a shelter. Except for our first African cat which came from a breeder.

I guess they didn't want to overshadow 'Pride Month' - but did anyone else notice the lack of 'Grim Milestone' headlines when the national death toll from covid went over the million mark?

If Trump was still in office the left would be working on his third, maybe fourth impeachment by now.

Biden in office? *crickets*

820 When on guard duty in the military on a lonely outpost deep in the wilds of an air force airport, I found a bank of vending machines. Coffee or hot chocolate made it worthwhile. When the officer came to check on me, I was awake. My loaded pistol at the ready, which I couldn't hit the side of the barn usually. Carried that 45 for 3 years, I wonder where it is now.

No, I don't mind, Ciampino. Stirling is a shelter kitten. It's just that I like a certain look to a kitten/cat, the long- or at least medium-haired type. This lack of communications is bothersome in that I've known this lady for some years. Chekov's aunt Tatiana and Chekov himself both came from her cattery. I've been to her home and have seen how well the kittens and cats are treated -- it's no mill.

It's just that, if someone tells me, "You get first pick," and then ignores my communication about that, it's damned disturbing.

In a fentanyl story, I just read on the wife's FB page how some young woman picked up a stray dollar bill in a parking lot. She put it in her pocket, washed her hands, then used some hand sanitizer.

Then went into convulsions. She survived, barely. The bill was laced with fentanyl.

Convulsions are not typical of fentanyl OD so I would be sceptical of that one incident but there's a new analog that's about 100x more potent. I can see some crazy mass killers doing that with money.

835 Re: the Domino’s story, it is laughable how many companies, when you go looking to see if they are hiring, have a “careers” page. They LOVE to place the cart carefully and lovingly before the horse. Because you CANNOT have a career without first having a JOB.

839 Re: labor unions, absolutely no one will point out that they only thing labor unions are good for is pricing the labor they represent out of the market (not to mention all the stupid rules that come with dealing with unions that slow business down and make doing business that much more expensive) and that they play a vital role in running businesses off.

Could be. It depends if the store is a corporate owned one or if the shop is owned by the franchisee.

Posted by: Tonypete at July 12, 2022 04:58 AM (Msys3)

841 835 - sure they happen, maybe not like that, but they happen - but for the vast majority, a job in fast food can be a side hustle or a summer job for a HS student saving money for the prom or his first car. These are not in any way “careers”. That word gets tossed around way, way too much. Better to have web pages called “jobs” or really big, hard words like “employment”.

It’s to the point that job fairs (which feature zero hiring and are a waste of time) are now increasingly called “career fairs”, which, given they fact that absolutely no hiring takes place at them, is utterly risible.

Well, if shutdowns, vaccines that don't work, and getting rolled and persecuted a hundred times over by people confused by the contents of their own underwear are Trump's "accomplishments", then no, not a fan.

Low gas prices and sticking it to the libs on Twitter is hardly enough.

Trump was/is a cultural phenomenon. Let's stop with the Cult of Personality stuff, already. That's how the left behaves.

Trump could have nominated 1,000 people for Supreme Court: they still have to be confirmed by the Senate. Mitch got them through despite being the minority party.

No fan of Mitch, either, btw, but give credit where it is due.
