The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"It's coming whether we want it to or not. And everyone is walking around with AI in their hands with their phones, recording, videotaping," San Francisco Mayor London Breed


Quote II

"When a passenger feels unwell, we will... no longer stop the train," Valerie Pecresse, French Muckity Muck.

They (And you know who They are) will cheat in any possible way. Of course an Elections Board has to be overruled by a State Judge. Thank you FIB Judge Porter.

A state judge in Illinois ruled Wednesday that former President Donald Trump cannot appear on the state’s primary ballot, but she put her ruling on hold to await a Supreme Court decision in a similar case.

Judge Tracie Porter said Mr. Trump was not being truthful when he said he is qualified to serve as president, and therefore he cannot be listed on the ballot. She overturned the state’s board of elections, which had allowed Mr. Trump to appear.

The judge based the decision heavily on the controversial ruling by the Colorado Supreme Court, which kicked Mr. Trump off that state’s ballot in December. That ruling has been put on hold by the U.S. Supreme Court, and in fact voters in Colorado are voting with Mr. Trump on the GOP primary ballot right now, but Judge Porter called it “persuasive.”

Nothing but political theatrics. Donald Trump will never win Illinois in November. She took it upon herself to be full center of several news cycles. And of course she will face no repercussions for her unethical shenanigans.

Relying on color and ethnicity over the years has led to an interesting anti-war issue in the Democratic Party. Their theme is, "Beat the Russians. Beat the Jews."

And yet, as the night went on, it also became clear that the uncommitted vote was larger than expected, and that the antiwar Democrats had issued a powerful message to Biden and his political advisers. Statewide, the final tally of uncommitted voters was slightly more than a hundred thousand, about 13.3 per cent of the total. In Dearborn, it was fifty-six per cent, and in Ann Arbor it was nineteen per cent. Andy Levin, a former Democratic congressman from Michigan, who backed the uncommitted effort, pointed out that Biden’s winning margin over Trump in 2020 was a hundred and fifty-four thousand votes, and he called Tuesday’s result “historic.” Layla Elabed, the campaign manager for Listen to Michigan, which encouraged Democrats to vote uncommitted, said, “Our movement emerged victorious tonight and massively surpassed our expectations.” She added: “We don’t want a Trump Presidency, but Biden has put Netanyahu ahead of American democracy.” Congresswoman Debbie Dingell, who represents Michigan’s Sixth District, and is a supporter of Biden, said that the large uncommitted vote didn’t surprise her. “It’s not just the Arab American and Muslim community,” Dingell told CNN. “It’s young people who want to be heard and have the same concerns.

RIP Richard Lewis dead at age 76: REPORT

Facts don't matter, genitalia and skin color does.

Supreme Court Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson must have fallen asleep last night watching a vintage '80s Chuck Norris movie as part of her preparation to hear oral arguments today in the Garland v. Cargill bumpstock ban lawsuit because her understanding of firearms is even less realistic than your typical Cannon Films production.

“Justice too long delayed is justice denied.”

THE scheduled execution of a convicted serial killer has been delayed after prison officials were unable to find a vein to insert an IV.

Thomas Creech, 73, who was convicted in November 1974 of five murders in three states, was set to die by lethal injection at 10 am PST on Wednesday before it was suddenly called off.

This is where a couple of things come to mind. I wonder if the injection specialist was a former employee of Asprius Health. And a .38 behind the ear of his choice would be quick and painless.

It isn't always true. But in this case it is, “Those who can, do; those who can't, teach.”

Here’s a tale for those who’ve wondered what happens when two Designated Victim Groups – both accustomed to deference – collide. Specifically, “Indigenous faculty members” at Wilfrid Laurier University, and the black Dean of the university’s social work department.

At the centre of the conflict is Kathy Hogarth,
That would be our aforementioned black Dean and self-styled “radical.” A radical who invokes the “burden” of her unspecified “trauma,” who works “in the name of resistance,” and whose melanin-related grumbles include “the system of white mediocrity,” onto which her paler colleagues allegedly hold with “a vice grip.” One can only hope that Dr Hogarth’s “trauma,” whatever it might be, was at least partly soothed by the $200,000 salary.

Professors in the faculty of social work had some pre-existing grievances with Hogarth: they found her untransparent about hiring decisions and said she had a generally uncollegial attitude.
I’m assuming that includes using social media to publicly badmouth colleagues based on their race. All that “white mediocrity.”

But it was at a faculty retreat in September 2022 that the showdown between Hogarth and the Indigenous Field of Study (IFS) social work faculty came to a head.

Not only does he have a great view of NYC. He can now proudly show off his Genius Award

NJ man who chopped down neighbor’s trees ‘for better view of NYC’ fined $13,000 — and faces $1 million bill

A security exec who hacked off his New Jersey borough last year by cutting down his neighbor’s trees without a permit has to pay $13,000, a judge ruled.

But Grant Haber still has to get to the root of the problem: Local prosecutors say the damages could exceed $1 million after he’s forced to pay for the replacement and care of the felled trees.

Haber cut a plea deal that saw him fined for just 18 of the 32 trees that he paid a contractor to ax last March in wealthy Kinnelon, New Jersey.

THE ONT MUSICAL INTERLUDE & SHUFFLED PLAYLIST EMPORIUM



&&&


***


Instead of calling the Emergency number and waiting. This guy took action. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A bin man who saw flames leaping from a flat ‘like a blow torch’ climbed a balcony three times to rescue those inside, saving the lives of a man, a woman and their dog.

Steve Whitehouse, 49, showed incredible bravery to climb up to the first floor and make sure all three were rescued after he heard a woman screaming.

Even rescuing one of them would have been remarkable, the local fire chief said, but to bring all three out safely was ‘staggering’.

This death sentence was for beating another inmate to death with a sock full of batteries. And if they couldn't find a vein, couldn't they just stick the line in his carotid? He's going to die anyway.

61 Meanwhile, in Ukraine,
The Ukrainians are having difficulty containing the Russian breakout from Avdeevka.
Poland is closing its border with Ukraine, supposedly to keep agricultural products out, but more probably to keep a future flood of refugees out.
Transnistria, a sliver of territory near the far southwest corner of Ukraine, has asked for Russia's protection. This is a big deal, as it is adjacent to the Ukrainian port city of Odessa. Ukraine can't afford to lose Odessa, NATO (specifically the UK) lusts after Odessa, and Russia has to take Odessa to make the Black Sea secure for their Navy. Transnistria's request kicks off the official start of the Odessa campaign.

63 It's obvious looking at the progression of white societies versus "societies of color" which has been more successful over time. I was more than happy not to point this out but if minorities are going to keep pressing this idiotic claim that somehow they have been kept down by white oppression then I think it's time to stop being polite.

Nobody kept Africa and other 3rd world shit holes down other than the people who lived there. Minorities have had to move to western countries created and run by whites to experience a better life, few whites are reciprocating.

And if not for white liberals promoting minorities with quotas over competency smooth brains like this judge in Illinois would be taking orders at the local McBurger joint.

I've had enough of minority racism. Fuck off.

74 Turtles can be escape artists. I kept box turtles for almost 20 years. A solid fence they can't see through, they are quite content to live their lives in their pen. If they can see the other side, they will be relentless about escape. I've seen a box turtle climb a 4' chain link fence and go up and over. They can work corners climbing, too.

125 As I have written before, in the late 80's and early 90's I had a second job as a bouncer at the topless bar in Houston TX where Anna Nicole Smith was one of our dancers. I have remained friends with a number of my fellow bouncers through our ties with the Martial Arts community. One of them had great success as both a competitor and as a coach, having won a national master's championship in Sombo (a Russian offshoot of Judo) and a number of Brazilian state championships in submission grappling (which is almost impossible for an American to do) he has coached MMA competitors, and a world champion in BJJ. He was visiting and we got to talking about the old times. I mentioned that Daryl Hannah had played a topless dancer in the movie Dancing at the Blue Iguana. We decided to watch it, expecting to see something as Hollywooded up, and unrealistic as Roadhouse is about bouncing. We were stunned. Dancing at the Blue Iguana absolutely captured what working in a topless bar was like. All of the actors were spot on, in particular Daryl absolutely nailed her performance as a Dancer. The parallels to what happened in real life at Gigi's Cabaret were amazing.

They are happy in captivity as long as they can't see the other side. Block wall or plywood, and a soft little hill to dig into and hibernate. They had a stone house to hang out in and a Pyrex water dish/swimming pool. It was like a turtle resort around here. Of course, daily food delivery, too.

I kid you not. And these were the HARD questions:

"Mr. [mnw], can you please count backwards from 100 until I tell you to stop?"

Now, Mr. [mnw], I'm going to read the name, age, & hometown of an individual to you. Please pay close attention, because in 20 minutes, I'm going to ask you to REMEMBER what I say just now, and REPEAT it back to me. Do you understand? Here we go: 'Jim Williams is 32 & lives in Phoenix, AZ.' OK? I'm going at ask you to REPEAT this individual's name, age & hometown back to me in 20 minutes. Do you understand?"

Ronald DeFeo Jr the killer made up a bunch of odd stories. One is that he was married to and living with a woman in New Jersey named Geraldine Gates and came back to his family home because his mother called him for help with his brother in law.

He produced a marriage certificate that was falsified, the women Gates lived in a different state and was married to a different man, and she had no brother to travel with DeFeo.

So...he's just a bad liar/crazy right? But years later he DID marry her from prison. Now I know there are crazy women that are attracted to murderers and will marry them in prison but...a murderer that lied about being married to you already? That seems really, really odd.

That was probably the most violent thing that has ever happened to me since I was smacked around at the Zoo in Tacoma several years ago by a foul mouthed asshole who was smacking birds with a stick.

Wham! Bam! Now go home and ice. Not sure it's any better, but I get to go back a few times just to see, I suppose.

Ehhhh, if the adjustment worked - IF, you should feel some relief in 24-48 hours. Take some Aleve to knock down the pain response, it will help the muscles relax (which is the real issue).

As to follow-up adjustments, it shouldn't be more than one or two more. Anything more than that is paying for someone's BMW.

168 Leftists fall into several types. The most dangerous are the True Believers, the Star Trek Socialists. They are in favor of destroying the entire world so they can, at last, build their, Socialism Done Right, dreamworld. Despite Einstein's observation that doing the same things and expecting different results is insanity, they think "This time we'll do it right". Their core belief is that "Government Can Be Trusted". No, really, that is what they believe, its an item of faith for them, and no amount of evidence can convince them otherwise.

Of course if they succeed in destroying our current world the socialism they build will be the same pile of rotting dog shit that socialism always is.

Yep. "I voted for the person that cares so this bad thing that happened is obviously unrelated"

In a rich blue town next to me they voted for a bunch of lavish new funding initiatives from a new library to a "sustainability officer". This had led to the town seeking a massive increase in taxes.

And the funny part - the town is saying of they don't get the money they'll close a school and fire a bunch of cops...not get rid of the sustainability officer or sell the library....

Commercial bread has sugar in it. Ostensibly it is for yeast or for flavoring, but it also keeps the bread more moist for longer, and I suspect it also helps it toast brown more readily.
I am told the sugar acts to attract moisture into the bread where bread without sugar would just go stale.
In my experience my home made bread takes twice as long to show brown in the toaster unless it is going stale, where commercial bread toasts right up the first minute I bring it home.

232 Snapping turtles are much more aquatic than box turtles and move around to find new digs if the creek, pond, ditch, they are living in dries up or food gets low. The one in the picture is probably chasing water on the other side of the fence.

One of my box turtles decided to leave about 4 1/2 years ago. Never saw him again til last summer. He was in my vegetable garden about 50' from his old pen. He sat with me for about 20 minutes, then walked off. Maybe I'll see him again 4 years from now.

239 Another odd part of the story - the police believe the killer used a rifle. And he killed all 6 people without a struggle. So...he went into each room, shot someone, woke no one up, then moved to the next room and so on?

Posted by: 18-1

Yeah - I still remember the coverage at the time, and could never fathom how it happened. There was some speculation that a family member assisted in the murders, only to end up a target themselves. There were also allegations that De Feo Sr. was linked to the Mob, although how that would come into play here is unclear.

It reminds me of the Villisca Axe Murders that took place in Iowa in 1912. Someone managed to murder a family of eight people on multiple floors without seemingly encountering any attempted escapes or alerting the others in the house. There's a theory that the killer used the blunt end of the axe to bludgeon the victims before coming back to do the Lizzie Borden routine, but it seems like that would still be a pretty noisy and disrupting.

Their "resistance" is counter-productive. They don't create. They don't make. They destroy. They literally destroy lives.

There's a saying that adversity breeds character. These critters don't have adversity. And they crave it, so they have to do an equivalent of "Stolen Valor" mixed with "Sins of the Father" to give their pitiful, meaningless lives something to fill the sheer emptiness within them.

It's also why they call it "Virtue Signalling". It's merely a sign, not of substance.

I was down in Pinehurst many years ago. I went out for an evening stroll and happened across a "turtle" in the middle of the road.

Being concerned, I went and picked up this fairly large fellow...and almost got my f'n hand bit off.

I'd never seen a Snapper that big, and I had no idea:
1) they stuck that fast
b) their necks rach out about the length of their shell
iii) they hiss

Thank god I hadn't been drinking or sparking up ... oye!

257 Turtles are incredibly weird for reptiles, in fact until genetic analysis was developed, there was some question about where exactly in the reptile class they were placed. they have no opening in their skulls so this was considered important, and they were assigned an Order for themselves. There had been some speculation that the closest relative was the marine lizards like the plesiosaurs at one point. They are now considered to be more closely related to dinosaurs/birds and crocodiliforms, for the supposed value of "branched off in the Permian" for "more closely related"

A short time later, there was the Altamont music festival in CA, where a crazy man brandishing a pistol was stabbed to death, by a Hells Angels "security guard," captured on film. There's a documentary about Altamont called "Altamont," with Jefferson Airplane (Grace Slick) and the Stones. It's very good. Altamont is where Peace & Love went to die.

326 Hospitals are bad places to give cognizance tests. I was with my father one time when he was in intensive care for a collapsed lung and complications, and he was recovering ok and could talk normally, but he was still on a lot of medication. He was carrying on a normal conversation with me, but he kept glancing out the window of his room and looking very troubled, I asked "what's bothering you out there?" and he said "Don't you see it?" I said "huh?" He said "Don't you see them? Those gorillas, they keep running up and down the palm trees and then running across the power lines. They shouldn't be out there like that." I took a long pause, and said as gently as I could "you gotta trust me dad, there aren't any gorillas out running around in the parking lot."
We learned later that it was a combination effect of one of the painkillers with one of the other drugs that was messing with his mind so much. It was really pretty funny.

My father built a clock. It is a wood carving of an owl, whittled out of a board. The owl's eyes rotate on spindles, and are solid white, with black sectors of about 30 degrees, and each black sector has a white median line on it, making a pointer. Around each eye are 12 carved notches indicating the hours on a clock. On the back side, each eye has a pulley, connected by a rubber-band belt to like-sized pulleys on the spindles of an old alarm-clock movement house in a coffee can. Alarm clock movement is worn out. I should replace it with a battery driven quartz clock.

Hammer the UTI with the right antibiotic, and the hallucinations diminish, or disappear.

One day we should talk golf I used to be big into it in the 80s and early 90s. I could tell you every masters winner from the 80s and 90s. With all this LIV stuff going on and so many players who are childish in many ways compared to Jack, Arnie Chevy, etc. I’ve lost some interest. But I have always loved the game. I just think we had better players and representatives a few decades ago.

By the tail. I think they can bite something that grabs their back legs. I've only seen alligator snapping turtles around here, with the ridged shell. Maybe the other kinds like that smooth-shelled one in the picture up top can't reach as far? The picture makes it look like it can, though.

In that town, Jubal Early is still someone to be revered. Last time I checked they had five streets named for Jewel early with his different nicknames. The town still has lefties, because every city does, but they will never go as far as the lefties and other cities because they know the people won’t allow it.

We had much better representatives a few decades ago. The old timers knew how to present themselves in public. They may have been rat bastards but social media wasn't around then, so they played the part. Even golf 'bad boys' back then had a bit of class to them. The players are better today, overall. Better training, equipment, etc. They are much fitter. Also, way more bratty and self centered. Reflects the era, sadly.

I don't fault the players going over there. It's hard to say no to all that cash. Having it funded by the House of Saud is disconcerting, but the Saudi's have been buying their way into many a sports league around the world (See the EPL). They could change their minds and poof, LIV is gone. As for the format, I don't hate or love it. It's just, different. (shrugs)

But just as a thought experiment, is there any way to make this story more kafkaesque? "You're guilty because you said you were innocent when you're actually guilty."

399 The PGA and Euro Tours are rapidly approaching the post-Tiger era and all that money they got from that will leave. The networks and Tours will have to deal with that, soon. LIV, I think, may have the right idea as it gives the players more power to make their own money (equity). Lots of inside baseball stuff between LIV and the PGA Tour. I occasionally watch a YTube station with Kostis & McCord, former broadcasters(CBS)/golfers. They cover this and what they have to say is interesting.

At work I sat on the phone yesterday afternoon waiting for Social Security to get to me. Forty minutes. I've got to try again this morning, and I can go longer, since yesterday I needed to go home. Medicare was only a five-minute wait and they were nice, but they couldn't help me because the applications I sent to SS have to be processed there before Medicare gets them.

408 392, puddlegum, for sure we had our bad boys going back. There was Tommy Bolt, champagne, Tommy, Lima, And so many others. Sevi himself was a bad boy, it was based on the Ryder Cup, but he really disliked Americans at least in the context of the Ryder Cup and maybe even a bit more. The cool thing about savvy was even though he held a huge grudge mainly against America. We loved him. He was a Spaniard and backed in Spaniards. Didn’t care about golf, the Brits adopted him and he was there warrior. It is not for me to dissect, or interpret how Seve felt about the USA. I ran into him one time and it was super brief. But to be honest with you following Seve shooting a 72 was better than following. Anyone else shooting us 69. He just had this aura about him. I can’t explain it.

Tulane had a pool, in 1974. It was on the lowest level (called a basement in civilized places) of the university center, along with a barbershop and their beer/pizza parlor Der Rathskeller, universally called The Rat. I wasn't a student there, but my first wife-to-be was.

I guess they closed the pool before they built the big gym the faculty and students all use now.

418 411, I watched one LIV tournament and just did not like it. I don’t get the music and all the other crap going on. With the unlimited money they have they should come up with something that works. As a person who always thinks the past was better I’m not sure I understand why the PGA tour was not working. Or PGA tours not being compensated enough?

I guess the stories about people on the lower end, who have to spend a couple hundred thousand a year, at least just to travel the tour. But the PGA tour is paying them millions and I mean tens of millions. I just don’t understand people giving up that tour for the Saudies, for something the public never asked for and doesn’t seem to like at all. Talk about inside baseball., this is the revolution that no one asked for.

419 And the Killer Kittens From Outer Space are thriving. Stirling, as I said, jumped up to be friendly and kept me from going back to sleep. Dagny rolled on her back for petting when I came out into the living room.

These spidery-looking insects hang around my front door, "crane flies." They look like overgrown mosquitoes, but they don't bite (and they eat the real skeeters). But when they get in, the cats go nuts trying to trap and kill them. The things are surprisingly hard for me to kill -- they seem to dodge a swat without even trying -- so the kittens have lots of fun. I'm just afraid, in their hunting zeal, they'll knock over a lamp or dislodge a picture from the walls.

I worked in the bookstore in the basement, barber was there (cheap, and as if I cared) and the Rat (cheap beer, OK pizza). But then the drinking age was 18.

422 416, I used to own his golf book. To be honest I idolized Seve. I am as pro American as anyone and I loved, easing her going up against him as long as well as Watkins and couples. Seve just had this swagger, this undefinable quality. He was a Spaniard, and in his day Spain didn’t give a damn about golf. The Brits adopted him and cheered him like he was the second coming of Churchill. They legitimately loved him. The down low was we loved him too.

As the library found out in Katrina, when they lost a lot of their archives in their lowest level to rising water. The "lowest level" at the UC was probably at ground level, though, since the main level was, and is, up a short flight of stairs.

It's neat to look at the 1938 WPA book about the town. The section on Tulane mentions several buildings that are still here, but not others, those built after '38. And the address they give for the university is way off from today's address. Either the city renumbered things, or the WPA made a mistake.
