Reason #9 why you have hunting/trapping seasons.

LOS ANGELES, California — A coyote grabbed a toddler from her family’s front lawn in Woodland Hills area of Los Angeles on Friday and began to drag her away before her father managed to scare the animal off, leaving the girl with scrapes and scratches.

It's so fucking easy to ease one's guilty conscience with someone else's money.

The state of California is considering a plan to give $230,000 in slavery reparations to every qualifying black Californian resident.

The proposal is being mulled by a reparations task force created by Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom.

The task force is looking at handing out some large sums, up to $223,000, to give to each qualifying black American residing in California.

Newsom created the nine-person task force in 2020.

It was set up as a social justice measure to promote “equity” amid the Black Lives Matter rioting that was seen across the country.

Recycling it makes one feel good, doesn't it? City leaders and residents of Palo Alto, CA find out differently.


Four years ago, city officials in Palo Alto, California, posed what they thought was a straightforward question: Where did their recycling go?

Concerned citizens had seen dire headlines about plastic dumping in Southeast Asia, and they wanted to know if their waste contributed.

But the city’s investigations have not offered much clarity. Palo Alto’s best reckoning, today, is that about 40% of its recyclable material stays in North America, where it’s supposed to be processed according to strict environmental and labor standards. The other roughly 60% goes abroad, mainly to Asia, with next to no transparency about its fate.

Experts say cities and towns across the United States would probably have similar difficulty in determining how much of their recyclables are actually recycled.

Curfews? Well the law abiding won't violate them. But the thugs and animals? Not so much.

Every time you asked a Democrat or one of their MSM stenographers about the rising crime rates in America’s cities during the run-up to the midterm elections, you were told that it was a mirage. It’s not really that bad. These are just Republican talking points. New York’s Governor even expressed disbelief as to why anyone would even bring it up. Perhaps someone should point these people to the current situation in the City of Brotherly Love. (A tragically hilarious name given the current circumstances.) If things are going so well, why would the City Council vote to make the 10 pm curfew that was in place for almost everyone under the age of 18 all summer permanent? And yet that’s what happened on Thursday and one of the Democrats who voted in favor of the measure specifically called out the city’s rampant crime rates and the threat crime poses to her own child as the reason.

I usually don't pay attention to Sean Hannity. Mark Levin is usually right more than wrong. Not in this case.

CNN Runs Cover For McCarthy Ahead Of Speaker Race, Levin/Hannity Fall In Line
Republican Establishment figures like Mark Levin and Sean Hannity and even CNN have rattled off pro-McCarthy talking points as pro-Trump Republicans speak out.

McCarthy was one of the reasons Trump was not successful when the GOP controlled the House and Senate.


Now we have this: Will Hannity & Levin fellate Ohio Congressman Mike Turner?

Sunday Talks, Incoming Republican House Intelligence Chairman – Orange Man Bad, Joe Biden Should Be Commended, Zelenskyy is Awesome, More Money for Ukraine, Working Great with Adam Schiff and Mark Warner

Sooner or later someone, if not Donald Trump, is going to have to start a second party.

Appearing on CBS with Margaret Brennan, incoming House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Turner walks through the priorities of the new HPSCI committee, to include that President Trump is horrible, Ukraine President Zelenskyy is awesome, Joe Biden is doing an awesome job and Ukraine needs more U.S. money and weapons.

If you listen closely, you might even catch the part where Mike Turner says he is working swimmingly with current HPSCI Chairman Adam Schiff and current Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Mark Warner. Yes, folks, you just cannot make this stuff up. Ms. Brennan is absolutely smitten with Mr. Turner, he’s an acceptable republican.

Schiff is a traitor. Ukraine needs no more of our money or our treasure. And Biden couldn't star in a wet dream. It's people like McCarthy and Turner which make me hate the GOP.

“Working for Vice President Harris has been an honor and a privilege,” Simmons said of his departure in a statement provided to Politico.

Multi-instrumentalist, producer and composer, Frank Zappa died of prostate cancer. Zappa recorded many albums with The Mothers Of Invention as well a solo recordings including the 1969 album 'Hot Rats' and 1974 album 'Apostrophe'. Zappa recorded one of the first concept albums, 'Freak Out' released in 1966, it was also one of the earliest double albums in rock music (although Bob Dylan's Blonde on Blonde preceded it by a week). He married Adelaide Gail Sloatman, in 1967, they had four children: Moon Unit, Dweezil, Ahmet Emuukha Rodan and Diva Thin Muffin Pigeen. via thisdayinmusic.com

On this day: 4 Dec 1971
The Montreux Casino in Switzerland burnt to the ground during a gig by Frank Zappa. The incident is immortalized by Deep Purple's 'Smoke On The Water'. In 1967 the Casino became the venue for the Montreux Jazz Festival, which was the brainchild of music promoter Claude Nobs. On the night of the blaze, Nobs saved several young people who, thinking they would be sheltered from the flames, had hidden in the casino from the blaze. A recording of the outbreak and fire announcement can be found on a Frank Zappa Bootleg album titled Swiss Cheese / Fire.

I think you folks really got your money's worth this evening.

I think the police were awfully kind to this: Genius Award Winner.

A man who made 68 calls to 999 over a 90-minute period was later found to be drunk in his bed, not needing police assistance.

Nottinghamshire Police said the man consistently rang 999 and hung up on officers when they tried to find out what was wrong.

The force urged the public to only call in an emergency after the Newark man made the calls in September.

Officers said the number was "not there to be called for trivial matters".

Taking the job upon themselves. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A couple saw packages discarded on the side of a road. They delivered the parcels themselves.

Ahead of the holidays, a couple in Ohio followed in Santa’s footsteps and delivered packages they saw discarded off the side of a road.

Zachary Arnwine, a 24-year-old steelworker at Cleveland-Cliffs, told USA TODAY he and his fiancée Tristen Raisch, a 20-year-old stay-at-home mom, were driving to their home in Franklin, Ohio, from Raisch’s father’s house on Nov. 25, when they saw a FedEx driver who “looked like he was throwing trash.”

13 Concerned citizens had seen dire headlines about plastic dumping in Southeast Asia, and they wanted to know if their waste contributed.

In a small inland Eastern town in America I live in now, the people voted to ban plastic bags.

Why?

Well you see a teenager gave a speech about how a whale choked on a plastic bag in the Philippines.

What does that have to do with my town? Nothing.

So now I get paper bags at the store which I immediately throw away, and instead have to buy the plastic bags I use in my house.

---------

Coyote populations around here are at all time highs, say the people who count coyotes.

They complement the sea lions at the coast that have flourished and become a major force of cost and destruction for boaters.

We can't even keep the wildlife suppressed anymore. That used to be a basic function of civilization.

33 Nevertheless, neocons are jumping on the DeSantis bandwagon, hopeful that he will lead a Republican Party without Trump, one in which they might again find a respected, and perhaps even leading, place.

The true neocon, however, doesn’t care as long as his own “relevance” is back in play. As long as it’s not led by Trump, even a losing party offers hope and at least a glimpse of junior-varsity power somewhere down the line, or within the controlled opposition neocons already inhabit. A winning party led by DeSantis, however, promises the opportunity to fall at the young governor’s feet to offer him their unequaled “wisdom” and decades of “expertise,” wrapped up in the sickening platitudes of Beltway flattery. If DeSantis is triumphant in 2024, let us hope he sees through them and sends them back to their urban pastureland.

And we'll soon be treated to the usual dismissal of DeSantis because he's a tool of the neocons. Protip: Just because the neocons think he might make them relevant again, doesn't mean he's their tool, it means they are fools.

59 Every time you asked a Democrat or one of their MSM stenographers about the rising crime rates in America’s cities during the run-up to the midterm elections, you were told that it was a mirage.

The trick that a abolish prisons/abolish police organization in Portland did was explain that crime was only slightly up - using only statewide numbers.

Since Portland is only 15% of the state's population, crime can explode in Portland without affecting the state-wide numbers very much.

It's actually surprising that more crime hasn't spilled over to the burbs - I guess that having functioning DAs and cops in the suburbs makes a difference.

This genius wrote a letter to the editor complaining about how awful it was that she got let go from her job. Big surprise, no one else in that line of work would touch her with a ten foot pole.

79 Are we doing First World Problems tonight? Because my First World Problem is that I went to replace the seat on a seldom-used toilet in the basement and noticed it was dripping a little. Investigating further, I discovered the drip was from where the tank joins the bowel. When I (gently) tightened the tank-to-bowl bolts, one of them broke off. Inspection of the interior of the tank revealed that the tops of both bolts are completely corroded away, replaced by lumps of oxidized metal.

So, tomorrow I get to go look for replacement parts, then try to fix it. It looks like it should be an easy fix, but nothing is ever easy.

129 to include that President Trump is horrible, Ukraine President Zelenskyy is awesome, Joe Biden is doing an awesome job and Ukraine needs more U.S. money and weapon

I read a hilarious article from a writer at the prestigious Carnegie Endowment For International Peace talking about surveying the Russian-speaking population of Eastern and Southern Ukraine.

Before the invasion, "this part of Ukraine had retained generally positive attitudes toward its eastern neighbor: 53% in Ukraine’s east and 45% in the south viewed Russia favorably".

But now, "by May 2022, only 4% in Ukraine’s east and 1% in the south still had a positive view of Russia".

It would be a brave person to express a positive view of Russia to a pollster in Ukraine these days, given that Ukraine is now a functional dictatorship that is raiding Orthodox monasteries, and has arrested many people for "collaboration with the enemy."

No matter how the current war in Ukraine ends, it’s very hard to imagine the re-emergence of pro-Russian political parties. Ukrainian officials have already said repeatedly that they will not allow that to happen.

I roll my eyes at Levin supporting McCarthy.

The only person whose shown support for McCarthy that actually angers and disappoints me is Trump. If his friend or foe meter is so broken he'll fall for what that Rino says, we'll, he deserves the goring he'll get the moment McCarthy feels he's safe to do so.

159 Hmmm. Sounds sort of like what we did in Germany and Japan after WWII. Clearly, we're all Nazis.

Well, considering that the Ukrainian government has stated that it will forbid the teaching of the Russian language in schools (even in areas that are 100% Russian speaking), will forbid the teaching of Russian literature, and has banned all Ukrainian political parties that represented Russian speakers, that goes a bit farther than what we did in Germany and Japan. I didn't know that the people of Eastern Ukraine were to be treated as a defeated population.

The mayor of Kharkov, which is predominately Russian speaking, was fined by the Ukrainian government for briefly speaking in Russian during a telethon, asking for funds. It's now illegal to speak Russian on Ukrainian television, even for only a few seconds.

Hardly. They were forbidden from organizing as Nazis or as worshipers of the emperor. IOW, they were forbidden from engaging in the same activities as those that led to the war.

I didn't know that the people of Eastern Ukraine were to be treated as a defeated population.


The Russian speaking separatists of eastern Ukraine were trying to secede and take part of Ukraine with them. When the South tried that here, we prevented it and treated them as a defeated population. The fifth column Russians deserve nothing else. If they want to be Russians, well, there's the border.

236 The Sloop New Dawn had a CNG cooktop and oven.

Gas bottle was size & shape of a SCUBA air bottle, but with different threads, of course. 2,200psi. Thing about CNG, is that it's lighter than air. If it leaks, it'll vent out through abovedecks ventilation, cracks & crevices. Propane, being heavier than air, will pool in the bilges, and slowly rise up into the engine compartment or belt-buckle high into the cabin. So when you stroll over to the galley and light up the stove, you get a surprise.

KaBoom. It's not just a breakfast cereal anymore.

247 Apparently I've labored under a misapprehension for many years. Always thought that the minimum wage was what you were paid while your yet prospective employer decided whether or not you were worth keeping. Also that a high min wage posited that you were supposed to be content with that sum for your career.

I was informed of this by an insufferably smug young man in an extremely condescending manner. This also ended the conversation.

278 SMH. The Rand McNally published for truckers, as well as the Garmin GPS produced for the trucking market, are both invaluable tools.

And the Garmin made for the RV market is nothing short of a miracle, in terms of passable roads for height/width/length and type of RV. (a 44 ft. Class A diesel pusher is a whole different kettle of fish in the twisties, than a 44 ft. Gooseneck or 5th wheel trailer.)

Yes, I've seen both, locked into full-stop WTF dilemmas, on twisty roads they had no business trying to run in the first place. It's not the drivers I blame, oddly enough. But some RV salespeople need to be dragged off and shot, and the dealerships burned to the ground.

In 2009, neither did I.

The current Trucker and RV versions though, are stuffed with so much vital info, that they're useful as hell for all that, even if you're not using them for essential navigation.

Example. The "Trucker" one now, knows the routes and "cheats" that get the box backed up to the loading dock, and has each of those individual, numbered loading docks mapped into it's database. It knows the "pull-through" parking or stopping areas, including some data as to Trucker Friendly (or not). They'll steer you right the hell away from any Buc-ee's, for example.

They sell an entire kit for that, just make sure you get the right seal between the tank and the pedestal/bowl.

Swearing is allowed by the way, there is no easy way to get the screws out and replaced unless you dismount the whole thing and do the repairs outdoors in the light.
Which means you need a new wax seal when you remount the toilet to the sewer. You might need one anyways. Use a scrape from the old seal to help hold the new seal in place while you reset the toilet otherwise it falls out every damned time and if you pinch it you need another new one.

Stuff a wad of newspaper down the hole to keep from dropping stuff down the sewer. Remember to remove it before resetting the toilet.
Don't over tighten the bolts.

Most of those great Marx Brothers movies were films made after stage plays by the same title, and the writers of those plays were George Kaufman and Moss Hart. But they wrote the dialog with the personalities of the brothers' characters in mind, so it was pretty organic. The jokes would never have been remembered if they were uttered by lesser comics.

Every desk had the full Thomas Registries, Yellow Pages, and every available map of the territory for which they were assigned.

Those Desk Warriors could get their reps to their appointments, turn by turn, damn near every time. Even though those reps had to stop at pay phones to get in touch with their Support. Just a bit before cel fones were in the common hand.

Back when I worked in the oilfield, a drilling consultant gave me a book called, simply, The Map Book. It is an 8 1/2 by 11 spiral-bound book of maps of Alberta, county by county, showing all the local roads, and if they are full-service or seasonal roads. Normally we were given very good driving directions to get to location, but the map book was useful for taking shortcuts, or for showing us why certain shortcuts might be unwise. I remember one well I was on, we were told, "under no circumstances use Highway such and such when coming and going from the rig". Because mad bomber Wiebo Ludwig's home compound was right on that highway, a few scant miles from where we were set up. Rig had 24/7 guards on patrol, too.

He's dead now. I don't know if his family still runs the "compound" (basically a hobby farm) now, or if it even still exists. He was a religious nut case, and a bad farmer. His sheep died, because the Lord did not provide enough fodder for them to graze on, but he claimed they were poisoned by gases from nearby wells, and blew up a couple of pipelines. And then, one summer night, a pickup load of young people from a nearby town drove through his yard and commenced turning donuts in the dirt. A shot rang out, and a 17 year old girl passenger in the pickup died of a gunshot wound to the head. RCMP searched his place high and low, never found a gun, and nobody was charged.

Was you n' me to be the cars in a Demolition Derby, we'd both be ruled DNF before the green flag waved.

I have no tattoos. Because, my scars are my tattoos.

Good thing though? We could sit n' visit n' sip and enjoy cigars, and a HELLUVA lot of conversation. I think you'd have better stories than me, but some of mine, ain't lacking.

Yeah.,.. I don't know... I was crusty more than 20 years ago BEFORE I retired from the Navy. Literally years at sea... watched the Navy go PC, and fought it as much as I could. Saw where it would lead (I have a bad habit of reading history... none of this is new).

I've never really given that consideration as to age?

But when the echos of such words resonate up from the younger ranks, and become a deafening capaphony, well, it kinda becomes a thing, doesn't it? I grew up a Navy Brat; did but a single hitch as a USAF puke. Did live aboard the New Dawn for seven years, though.

Any bilge rat wants to call me an Old Salt, I'm gonna wear that as a Badge of Honor.

Why? believe it or not... some do pay attention. Just today at the Grocery store, saw a Mini van with a 2020 Biden/Harris sticker on it... they were loading up... I stopped... pointedly looked at the sticker... and just said... oh... Dumb and Dumber... Lady looked at me... cringed, and said 'yeah, I really need to take that off'...

414 Gents, my 41 y/o USCG neighbor is as Salty as they come.

Over half of his service assigned to seagoing ships. An Around the World Show the USCG flag cruise, aboard one of them.

Now a Chief, Master Electricains Mate, about to pull his last tour before retiring. Fellow Gunnie, blossoming Constitutionalist, VERY anti-woke. Hyper motorcyclist. Nearly as many tools as me, and combined, we might even give AOP a run for his money

If he gets assigned another seagoing billet, I'm gonna raid his Goat Locker and prank his Coastie ass, just as a send off to his years of faithful service. And yes, I *can* and will, make this happen.

Story time boys and girls... I was doing a Tech assist to a Submarine that was pulling into Hong Kong. Flew in and was staying at a Hotel there... went down to the bar and started a conversation with an old British Couple who were 'at the club'... it suddenly hit me... that there was no one I knew withing 5000 miles, who knew me. I could be the biggest idiot in the world, and NO ONE WOULD EVER KNOW... unless I told them. Talk about a liberating realization. We limit our freedom because we don't want to hurt those we care about... but... when they are NOT AROUND???? Why the hell do we still do it?
