The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"Due to climate change, we have more heatwaves and older women suffer more. They die more often during these heatwaves than they otherwise would"Elisabeth Stern


Here's hoping that old bitch sweats to death tonight.


*


Quote II

“I know that thing that you have to get on and figure out how to text the money is difficult. I’m a technical idiot, but I can write a f–king check. And right now, that’s courage, too, because I know what’s happening. I just lost half my money to this banking thing.” Actress Sharon Stone


Quote III

“I haven’t a clue. I didn’t see this coming. This behavior is so out of the ordinary for him. Obviously his personal safety is a concern.” Joseph Murtha, Attorney


No. He is not employed at Dewey, Cheatem & Howe, S.C.

I feel better. The Kung Flu National Emergency is now over. What the hell will the Karens do now?

The Senate passed legislation Wednesday to scrap the federal government’s three-year-old COVID-19 national emergency.

In a bipartisan 69-23 vote, the Senate voted to immediately terminate the emergency. Overall, more than a dozen Senate Democrats voted with nearly every Republican to pass the measure.

“Emergency powers are given to the executive branch so the commander in chief has the flexibility to quickly act in the event of a crisis,” said Sen. Roger Marshall, the Kansas Republican who authored the measure. “That declaration was appropriate in 2020, but now it’s time for the proper Constitutional checks and balances to be restored.”

A 12 year restraining order without a razor. How is a poor girl suppose to survive?

A woman who stabbed her vulnerable victim before tying her to a chair and demanding cash has been jailed.

Zara Jade, 54, attacked her victim at a flat in Halifax last year and left her tied up while she withdrew money from an ATM.

Jade admitted offences of wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm, robbery, fraud and false imprisonment at Bradford Crown Court.

She was jailed for nine years with an extended licence period of three years.

The injuries inflicted were described as "superficial" by prosecutor Lydia Pearce, who said Jade then took cash from the victim and also demanded her PIN number.

Jade used tights to tie her victim into a electrically-powered chair, set in the recline position.

Accidental incest? Hmmm. I guess no wisecracks about the British monarchy.

A Dutch musician is accused of fathering 550 children via sperm donations.

The Netherlands allows donors to father no more than 25 children, citing the risk of accidental incest.

The donor is being sued in a bid to prevent him from continuing to donate sperm.

Here's a novel idea. Catch him and cut his balls off. Case closed.

Lloyd Austin is a piece of shit and a perfect cabinet member for this regime.

I think these young ladies need to toughen up and get with the program. Girls can have erections ya know.

Female Students Sue Sorority For Admitting Biological Male Who Allegedly Gets Aroused Watching Women Undress

Sorority sisters are suing the Kappa Kappa Gamma (KKG) sisterhood for admitting a male University of Wyoming student, according to a complaint.

KKG admitted biological male Artemis Langford, its first transgender-identifying member, into its ranks in Oct. 2022. Guidelines set by the National Panhellenic Council define a sorority as a “single-gender organization comprised of women and individuals who identify as women” while leaving admission decisions up to individual chapters.


Suck it up Buttercups.

Everyone is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty. But...... Here's hoping this SOB spends an eternity in a prison cell and hell.

Sam Bankman-Fried’s Legal Defense Is Being Funded With Alameda Money He Gifted His Father

While still CEO of now-collapsed FTX, Bankman-Fried transferred millions of dollars to his father. Some of those funds have since been used to pay for his mounting legal fees, according to two sources close to the company.

***


The ONT is happy to report Pennsylvania citizens will once again be represented in the US Senate.

Fetterman will return to the Senate next month: Report


No word if his depression has been resolved and if he has recovered from his stroke. The US Senate has "Special Needs" quotas to fill.

Crimes against humanity? I don't think so. But it is nice filler material for a Wednesday night.

SOUR NOTE Five discontinued candies you’ll never get to chew on again and people are claiming it’s a ‘crime against humanity’

C'mon Gavin we want to know how batshit cray cray you are.

Newsom falls silent after calls for him to take executive action on reparations
Governor's position unclear amid calls for action as state weighs massive reparations plans

California Gov. Gavin Newsom is staying silent as his state considers doling out potentially hundreds of billions of dollars to Black residents in reparations as a way to make amends for slavery and subsequent discrimination.

Newsom, a Democrat, has yet to take a position or comment publicly on the prospect of his state potentially enacting a slew of recent reparations proposals that are gaining steam in California. The governor's office didn't respond to any of Fox News Digital's repeated requests for comment regarding his views on the issue and whether he's considered taking executive action to implement the plans being discussed if the California Legislature doesn't act.

The California Reparations Task Force, which was created by state legislation signed by Newsom in 2020, is considering a proposal to give just under $360,000 per person to approximately 1.8 million Black Californians who had an ancestor enslaved in the U.S., putting the total cost of the program at about $640 billion.


All of a sudden I identify as a black Californian.

They never should have been over-ridden. And any future grants should come with explicit requirements for re-authorization or they expire.

331 The Kappas suit has a problem - the girls voted the weirdo in. There are few do-overs for stupid ladies. The answer is quit and rush another sorority

So...the young women did something stupid and politically correct and now are upset that it didn't end up like the FNM told them it would?

This too is the story of America.

Though I have to say if I was a younger man I would be sorely tempted to claim to be a chick just to join a sorority and get to participate in all those lingerie pillow fights (don't tell me those aren't real even if they uh...aren't real)

It is now structurally much worse than the mess the Services were in after the end of the Viet Nam war (especially the Army). Then, becoming an eventual all - volunteer force eventually worked out a lot of the personnel and morale problems.

The Wedel Chocolate factory in Warsaw Poland employed Jews and Poles in excess of their actual need in order to save their lives. They provided rations to help feed the families, created underground schools when the Nazis closed schools for Poles, assisted the Resistance, and kept going until the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, when the Germans destroyed the factory. They might not have helped win the war, but they did a heckuva lot to help.

422 A friend could do such a good Fritz over the phone that he eventually couldn't resist and pranked a staffer on the Commerce Committee, gave him some directive to do something (before quickly calling back and revealing the prank).

We (several friends in different offices) had an agreement to call each other whenever Fritz was on the floor talking. Was the most entertaining thing in the Senate. Didn't matter the topic. He didn't allow staff on the floor (aside from his poor chief of staff), rarely had papers - just spoke, orated. He was like those cheesy jr. high history movies about the pre-Civil War Congress, in real life.

His pronunciation of "Sununu" was spectacular.

Starting with the demise of the Lockheed Flying Wing, when ordered to destroy the planes and break up the tooling.

They didn't order the A-12/SR-71s to be destroyed, but they did break up the tooling.

Same for the F-22.

How many OTHER valuable platforms have we had, where they've been ordered to destroy the means of making MORE?

Proposed Law. DOD or the Executive is FORBIDDEN from doing such, until squadrons and squadrons of the viable replacements are made and are in service.

IIRC They kept the tooling for the A-10 for like 10 years after production ceased.

But yeah the destruction of the F-22 tooling was a spite move to prevent a future administration from ever building more. Much like Reagan ordering 50 more C-5s to be built.

Other curse in the mix.

The Long Lead Time orders for parts and sub assemblies that'd make up subsequent Mks of aircraft. No one wants to re-start the F-14 Canopy production line, for no good reason.

Same for A-10 landing gear, titanium bathtubs and other key bits.

Being ME, I'd have ordered enough spare parts to be held in warehouses to build a couple three US fighter WINGS.

I well remember Kelly AFB, TX. Where they made 100% new wings for B-52s and C-5s. Pretty much remade T-38s from scratch there, too.

Big part of the production shop there, was re-making new tooling that Boeing had trashed for economic reasons, and Lockheed had trashed, having been so ordered.

AOP, did you get to play with your new TIG welder any more today?

I got here too late last night and saw you mentioned trying some C25 with it for steel and then some aluminum. Yep, CO2 won't do for aluminum at all, and while it will work for mild steel, you don't want any CO2 (or any other active gases) near the hot tungsten. It will ruin the tip before long.

You need pure argon (and other noble gases, or mixtures thereof for different specialties).

478 So, I was supposed to go 4-wheeling today. Got the Jeep to the meet-up point, loaded some stuff, and was ready to leave, and oh shit!, the left front tire is very low. Aired it up, but figured I couldn't trust, and drove back to the house. Took the wheel off the Jeep, and went over it thoroughly with a spray bottle of soapy water. Bunch of bead leaks at the aluminum rim. No holes in tire. Busted it off the rim, by hand. Found a bunch of sand and grit between the outer bead and the rim. Must have picked that up on the last outing. Cleaned up the rim and the tire; remounted it, and after 6 hours, it still looks good.

Figured it was time to add a full-size spare. I had a 31" tire on a steel rim, but the tire had a cut in it. Demounted that tire, buffed the inside with my angle grinder, and glued in a patch. Then went shopping for an inner tube. Tractor Supply has them! $24 and change. Will mount tire and tube tomorrow, and bolt the finished wheel onto the roof of the Jeep.

No, I didn't. Will box it back up, and take it home to Alberta with me. I have a cylinder of argon at home. I just wanted to make sure the machine functioned in all modes. It is easy to strike and maintain an arc. I used to do a lot of acetylene welding, so the hand motions of TIG should not be too hard for me to get used to.

481 The rarest of all things - some good news. Of interest only to residents of San Diego County, mostly. The most dangerous, and loathsome, of the county supervisors, has resigned amidst scandalous allegations (sexual harassment, maybe more).

Met this guy at a lunch event years ago. When he was GOP. Fresh out of the Corps, had his Globe & Anchor pin on his lapel. Decades in the Beltway for me, and this guy set off the Greasy POS meter more than any I can recall. Instantly. He became a state assemblyman (ambulance-chased a local kidnapping/murder case, politically/legislatively, typical these days, but still). Then *switched parties* because - wait for it - the rudderless, empty, pathetic, wimpy, me-too'ing CA GOP was "too extreme" for him!!!!!! Not making this up.

Translation: he's an empty political animal, realized the future was in mindless Coastal Clueless Dem nonsense crusades, so he hooked up with sugar-daddy Qualcomm founder and ran for several offices, finally settling for county supervisor.

He'll probably be replaced by someone just as inimical and hostile to common sense and anything resembling American style freedom - but not as smart, or dangerous.

488 I also saw they're making dedicated tungsten grinders now, both stand-alone, and drill attachments. These things have guides to get the correct angles used, such as this stand-alone, hand held tool:

Posted by: Adriane the Querying Critic. . . at March 30, 2023 02:19 AM (jonTH)

How large a hole? The old-school way to drill glass was to use a straight piece of brass or copper tubing, and run it in a puddle of abrasive, like valve grinding compound. Slow, but will make a clean cut. Drill press is recommended.

So at first thinking cord got into belt right now thinking the inner disintegrating did it on its own.

Jesu, joy of man's desiring,
Holy wisdom, love most bright;
Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring
Soar to uncreated light.

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,
With the fire of life impassioned,
Striving still to truth unknown,
Soaring, dying round Thy throne.

507 Adriane, I have a nice big old antique bottle lamp in my family room, Never drilled a hole in it, the electrical is wired to the top of the bottle. I really like this lamp. It has a big glass bubble in the bottom of it, so drilling was not an option I used to go hunting for old bottles at yard sales, even dug some out of the dirt and mud by the railroad tracks with a friend of my brothers, They sit atop the beams in said family room flanking the old original pub sign in a wrought iron frame.

Aetius, I used to work a job where the business closed at 4:00 and reopened at 6:00, plenty of time to catch a mild buzz and cruise through the second shift. I'll have one ready to pour for you.

510 Ewetoob has a slew of videos on drilling glass. Evidently, the slew of cheap Chinese diamond and carbide drills has made the tube+abrasive drilling method obsolete.

The one take-away? When the hole is nearly done, ease up greatly on the pressure, or else you will spall out a big chip on the inside of the bottle, and risk breaking it.
