The Morning Report — 4/2/24

bidenhaledidnt.jpg

Good morning, kids. With Joey Sponge-Brain Shits-Pants' having a brain that's just that, and between the massive doses of cholinesterase inhibitors, adderall and kaopectate with viagra and teeny-bopper hair scent, he doesn't know whether he's coming or going. Now, with the justified (and in my opinion mild), backlash for his, or his handlers', defiling of the sanctity of Easter with this "Trans Day of Visibility" abomination – put down as an official Presidential proclamation/communiqué from the White House on Easter – suddenly "I did that!" becomes "I didn't do that!" in a nanosecond.

"I didn’t do that," Biden said when asked about proclaiming Easter Sunday 'trans day of visibility." Asked about Speaker Johnson's claim otherwise, the [so-called quote-unquote "president"] replied, "he’s thoroughly uninformed."

Which is funny because as the beeping sound a truck makes in reverse still reverberates, mop-topped imbecile mouthpiece Karine Jean Pierre is blaming Republicans, conservatives, Christians and anyone with even an iota of sanity stating, get this. . .

[It's] unsurprising that politicians are seeking to divide and weaken our country with cruel, hateful, and dishonest rhetoric."

Holy Funk & Wagnalls, Batman! That's about as close to the most perfect definition of Leftist projection as I've ever heard. Everything these evil bastards have done has done nothing but demonize the American founding, its people, culture, history and heritage for the purpose of dividing and conquering. Until my dying day, every problem and catastrophe, all the bloodshed, violence, misery and strife we have experienced almost since the founding is either directly the fault of or has been exacerbated by Leftists, socialists, progressives and their official home, the Democrat Party. Period, full stop.

Transsexualism is a psychotic disorder affecting perhaps a statistical handful of twisted individuals. What has the Left done? Turned them into a persecuted minority of significant numbers and equated them to Elie Wiesel dressed up in full drag regalia as Rosa Parks. Anyone who objects to that, or calls a spade a spade so to speak is viewed as the moral equivalent of Hitler. Or Donald Trump. And what Hitler did to the Jews, which the inhabitants of Dearbornistan and Mogadishappolis on alternate days claim either never happened or didn't go far enough, is what Trump and his white Christian nationalist insurrectionists will do to these poor helpless transexuals.

So, if one is told that one is in imminent danger of being loaded onto a cattle car and taken to a gas chamber, then all bets are off, right? Er, Left?

A former student at the school, Audrey Hale carefully planned the attack for months. She compiled a massive “manifesto,” which police, the FBI, and trans activists sought to keep suppressed. According to the Trans Resistance Network (TRN), Audrey Hale had “no other effective way to be seen than to lash out by taking the lives of others.” That evokes the deadly dynamics behind the Nashville murder spree.

As Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn explained, the line between good and evil runs straight down the middle of the human heart, and all human hearts. For the left, that line runs between social classes, nobles and peasants, workers and bosses, rich and poor, blacks and whites, and so forth. Trans ideology, the anti-scientific belief that woman can become men and vice versa, takes this division to another level.

“Homosexuality and transgenderism are two utterly different phenomena,” explains Bruce Bawer, author of A Place at the Table: The Gay Individual in American Society, but both groups are now enlisted in “the LGBTQ+ family.” That construct makes about as much sense as VBTPTA, the Vegetarian Butcher Terrorist Pacifist Teetotaler Alcoholic “family” or “community.”

Bawer outs the trans movement as a “revolution against reality itself,” a division that pits those who recognize reality against those who don’t. The trans types believe they are under attack from those who recognize reality. Those people, the trans types have convinced themselves, are guilty of “genocide.” They thus qualify for deadly violence, fueled by another dynamic.

“Nothing is more dangerous than a general idea in narrow, empty minds,” explains Hippolyte Taine, historian of the French Revolution. “As they are empty, it finds no knowledge there to interfere with it; as they are narrow it is not long before it occupies the place entirely. Henceforth they no longer belong to themselves but are mastered by it; it works in them and through them, the man, in the true sense of the word, being possessed.”

. . . Even in Washington, it’s hard to think of anybody with a narrower or emptier mind than Joe Biden, in Conrad Black’s phrase a wax-works effigy of a president. Biden is all-in with the general idea, the killer construct, and the revolt against reality. In that cause, the Delaware Democrat is hardly alone.

Last year, two months after the Nashville massacre, the Biden White House marked the anniversary of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. Kamala Harris named all the Uvalde victims but last year failed to name the Nashville victims or condemn Audrey Hale. An online search reveals no statement by Harris on the anniversary of Audrey Hale’s attack.

The estimable Lloyd Billingsley nails it. The mass psychosis of demanding we recognize that men can be women and vice versa goes hand in had with the concept of "woke" algebra, "woke" engineering, "woke" chemistry and on and on and on. At some point, merely declaring the emperor has no clothes will not be enough since uttering those very words could lead to quite literally a death sentence, either carried out by a tyrannical State or by street thugs and terrorists that are nod-and-a-wink approved by said State.

Declaring Good Friday to be "Trans Day of Visibility" is the moral equivalent of burning a cross on a black man's lawn. Something that Democrats and Democrats alone are very good at. And yet, "Trans Day of Vengeance" got short shrift in the media, as did this brain damaged Leftist Audrey Hale who took it quite seriously, and slaughtered innocent children. But, being Christian means to be guilty of 2,000 years of crimes against colored people of color, homosexuals, Muslims, indigenous persons and the spirit of John Lennon's "Imagine." Jews not included, of course. Unless they're already dead and their deaths can be blamed on Hitler or literal Hitler Donald Trump and his supporters.

Meanwhile, in another part of the forest, the RINOs have got a fever and the only cure is to surrender Congress before November and burn the country down in the process:

A handful of RINO members of Congress have either resigned or announced their intentions to do so in the coming weeks to months. They claim this is in protest to the now all but certain nomination of Donald Trump as the Republican presidential candidate. . .

. . . Nature abhors a vacuum, and the absence of serious Republican candidates or leaders since Reagan served up Donald Trump. Love or hate his personality, he teed up conservative policies that benefited America and her people, in an “America First” manner.

Now we have Joe Biden and his {junta] doing everything to hurt America and her people in an “America Last” agenda. If not Trump, then the GOP might as well resign itself to being an irrelevant permanent minority party on the national stage.

It’s not only Senator Murkowski throwing in the towel, but recently Rep. Ken Buck and soon, Rep. Mike Gallagher. I wrote about the Colorado Congressman’s abrupt exit in these pages a few weeks ago.

Was it a carrot or stick? Did someone offer him treasures or was kompromat held over his head? Or was it a middle-fingered gesture to the party of Trump? As he is in a solid red district, his departure won’t tip the balance of power in the U.S. House. Wisconsin Rep. Mike Gallagher, serving his fourth term in Congress, is also leaving Congress abruptly for reasons unknown, other than a likely gesture to the GOP that mirrors Buck’s sentiments. And his exit may tip the balance of power. . .

. . . As the uniparty cannot beat Trump at the ballot box, they are taking another approach. By ceding power to the Democrats, NeverTrump Republicans can with allegedly clean hands, destroy the leader of their party. And the party itself for daring to vote for Trump. In similar fashion, Jesus was betrayed or handed over like a hot potato to his eventual crucifiers, each contributing person or party telling themselves they had clean hands, deceitfully playing their small role in the process. . .

. . . SCOTUS teed up the solution to getting rid of Trump to Congress. In other words, states can’t keep Trump off the ballot, but Congress can offer legislation that Trump is an insurrectionist and should be kept off the ballot. This would occur on day one of Democrat control of the House, and with Democrat control of the Senate and White House, would be signed into law immediately. What about “judicial review”? Judging from the SCOTUS decision, such review would not favor Trump.

How convenient. Reps. Buck, Gallagher, and others can maintain innocence, like Pilate, “washing their hands” of this scheme to end Trump’s quest for a second term, by simply resigning “over principles” or “to spend more time with the family.”

. . . Will it work? Who knows? Trump is not naïve and doesn’t like losing, so I am sure he has gamed this out. But it’s clear that the Washington D.C. establishment, the ruling class, the deep state, the blob, or whatever you want to call it, views Donald Trump as an existential threat to their perks, power, and survival and is pulling out all the stops to stop him.

They forget that “We the People” are Constitutionally supposed to be in charge. When governments actively defy the will of the people, it never ends well, either in dictatorship and tyranny or in revolution.

Indeed. I'd say, there will be blood. But there already has been blood – OURS, from Ashli Babbitt and Roseanne Boyland, to the innocents at the Covenant School in Nashville, to Laken Riley and on and on. I abhor violence, but I'm sick and tired of it being our hair getting mussed to the exclusion of those doing the mussing.

PRIMARY DAY REMINDER: Wisconsinites, get out and vote YES, that is FOR, on the two election integrity/dark money ballot initiatives. And for any non-leftist running locally! Ditto to all other state elections with similar candidates/inititavies.

10 The biggest threat to democracy is [invents a bunch of shit and pins it on Trump].

Earlier in the interview, Kennedy gave a lengthy defense of that argument, saying “the greatest threat to democracy is not someone who questions election returns,” but rather Biden, pointing to his administration’s exchanges with social media companies.
Daniel Ziblatt, a Harvard University political scientist and the co-author of “How Democracies Die,” said of Kennedy’s comment, “It’s a preposterous claim.” He added, “To be a politician committed to democracy, there are two cardinal rules: One must accept election outcomes, win or lose; one must not threaten or use violence to gain power. Donald Trump has clearly violated both rules, while President Biden never has.”
Ruth Ben-Ghiat, a New York University historian, said Kennedy’s remarks and similar claims from some Republicans that Biden has infringed on their rights could further instigate fear and anger on the political right, which she said was a worrisome trend.

23 "I didn’t do that," Biden said when asked about proclaiming Easter Sunday 'trans day of visibility."

It takes a special level of stupid to first elevate trannies over Christ and then, when facing backlash over it, "literally" genocide all the trannies.

I cannot think of anything he could have done, so far, to make the situation worse for himself amongst the people who won't slavishly vote for him because they're on Team Jackass.

31 When I was younger, I liked Ayn Rand for the message of her works, particularly regarding the nature of authoritarians and their lackeys. But I was critical of her writing, because to me, it was ham-handed. I saw her characters as two-dimensional abstractions, that she used to beat the reader over the head with the blunt end of the premise.

But I was wrong. If anything, characters like Jim Taggart and Cuffy Meigs and Floyd Ferris and Wesley Mouch were too subtle and complex to reflect the walking caricatures of petty, small-minded brutal little tyrants America actually produced.

It's only logical that socialized medicine is rationed, and that means very long wait times. Only a complete and utter dunce would fail to see that (Sid, are you here?).

I wish her nothing but a total recovery, but I did have to wonder how quickly Princess Kate got treated, compared to the average Brit. From her first symptoms to her surgery to her treatment plan. A socialized healthcare system is unconscionably inhumane...and inhuman. It literally kills.

Not buying it. Not sorry for not buying it, either. Trannies are homosexuals. Not all gays are trannies, but that doesn't matter.

They're under the umbrella and they're part of - hell, they're the *leaders* of - the movement. They're the militant radicals of the movement, even moreso than the "bake the cake" people. They are bedfellows (literally in some cases) and on the same team.

They need to be stripped of their Congressional pensions.

They're not RINOs, they're Republicans in good standing, fully aligned with the Party's overarching goals. They are resigning because they will possibly lose anyway (only so many elections can be stolen, and only in so many jurisdictions) and the Party needs a favor.

57 Those flouncing GOPe congresscritters….. I wasn’t worried (good riddance) until reading that linked American Thinker article.

I have zero doubt that if the Dems somehow got control of the house this year they would pass a resolution declaring Trump an insurrectionist and so would the Senate. Then he’s “legally” banned from ballots.

They must see by now that Trump has a very good shot at winning. So get him off the ballot…. Failing that they’ll cheat with ballots. And they always have in their hip pocket the fed bureaucracy….. he gets in office and they thwart and ignore as much as possible.

Which is inevitable. It happens less here, but it does happen and will continue to get worse because we have the same fundamental problem.

When designing any insurance system, you may have universal access *or* universal coverage, but you cannot ever have *both* simultaneously. The US, back when we had a medical market, had universal access. Not everything - and sometimes nothing at all - was covered, but you could always get it. You'd have to pay, but you could get it if you were willing and able to pay. If you have universal coverage, many or most people will be unable to obtain access. "Universal coverage" plus "universal access" equals "unbounded cost" and unbounded costs cannot exist.

So you get rationing. You always get rationing. You can let the market ration things, or you can let the state do it, but it *will* happen because costs cannot be unbounded.

I'd rather the market engage in rationing, since it's much fairer and much less than rationing imposed by a bureaucrat.

That's something I think could be fixed by testing the questions.

For each piece of ballot language, test it with a mixed group. The group will include "C" average students selected from the 11th-grade class of a representative sample of high schools in the applicable jurisdiction and random members of each major demographic group in the jurisdiction as selected from the jury pool.

The group reads the ballot language and then describes what the proposal will *do* if passed. This can be free-response or multiple choice depending on how you want to structure it.

If fewer than 85% of test-takers get the right answer as to what the proposal will do, the ballot language is rejected and they get to try again.

I think a certain contingent of our ruling class actually *wants* to spark a global conflagration, though it's pretty small. But, they're aided by the rest of the ruling class, particularly the younger ones, who've simply lived in a consequence-free environment for so long that they think they can just do anything they want and it will be ok for them, since it always has been. Call it "abnormalcy bias," if you like.

I think this idea that Democrats in Congress, if in a majority, can, at any time, just vote the Republican nominee, or any Republican they chose, off the Presidential ballot, just by declaring them an "Insurrectionist!" is a mischaracterization of what the SCOTUS ruled. This would guarantee that no party other than the party in power, can have a Presidential candidate, if that party in power so choses - just by voting that they are an insurrectionist.

It seems to me that the SCOTUS ruled Congress would have to vote that a specific act was insurrection, and any American performing that act could be convicted of insurrection and, once convicted, then and only then could be removed from the ballot - thus making it apply to anyone and everyone, not just DJT.

The implication that Christianity is purely a WASP thing is countered by the fact that in the past decade or so, over six million Christians in the Congo have been slaughtered by the State and Muslims. That ain't Whitey being genocided.

When nobody bothers to report, the crime didn't happen.

That's why when you look at crime rates in the US, you see some oddities - like decent suburbs with much higher crime rates than the inner-city hellholes they ring. The reason is because the suburbanites report crimes. In many cases, they have to - insurance usually won't pay out without a police report, for example, and suburbanites are much more likely to be insured than urbanites - and people in the suburbs also have the expectation (reasonable or not) that the cops will do their jobs and so will be more inclined to report. They also tend to be old-fashioned and think that "law and order" means something and so they *should* call the cops instead of engaging in gangland vigilantism.

So suburbs often see higher crime rates than violent, dangerous cities - and it call comes down to reporting. Why should the inner-city dweller report a crime? He doesn't have insurance anyway and he knows the cops will do nothing.

202 ‘Frozen Empire Falls for Lady Ghostbusters’ Box-Office Curse

Not a surprise.

The Old Guard is brought in to look scared and do nothing as the teenage, genius girl lady boss takes care of business.

The TGGLB's storyline is more or less a "meeting cute" lesbian seduction by a ghost and they come thiiiiiiiis close - ll to sharing a lesbian kiss.

One or two funny moments. Villain is nothing special mostly serving as a supernatural pimp for the near lesbian meet-up. Bill Murray almost completely unused because this is a kinder, gentler, Ghostbusters.

If you turn off your mind and keep your expectations low, you might enjoy it or not.

Basically, how do you tell me that you still want to make Lady Ghostbusters 2 without telling me that you want to make Lady Ghostbusters 2.

Assuming the courts faithfully did their job, stop laughing, it would require more work than that. They would have to pass legislation somehow defining Jan6, and only Jan6, as an insurrection and then, presumably, try Trump on the issue and have him found guilty.

206 Another point I've mentioned before that a BBC reporter did a deep analysis of the main tranny clinic in Britain. The finding that I was most interested in was that prior to about 2014 they only gave counseling to their patients and almost all of them gave up the delusion they were women.

But...another point mentioned in passing is that a lot of those clients then claimed to be gay. And this seems to be the case with a significant number of trannies - that before tran-sanity became a thing they were just gay.

And I think if you look a little deeper this is sort of the progression you'd see with any sort of untreated mental illness.

In Heritage America these people would just be normal straight people.

In pre-trans-insanity America they'd be gay.

But now because our society is so sick they are having themselves surgically mutilated.

2. Indeed, President Biden has been on a "regimen of Pepcid,"apparently for a while. (It was recently supplemented by another antacid,.). Pepcid, unlike Prilosec, is not a "proton pump inhibitor" or PPI, the type implicated in the dementia study. It reduces acid via a different mechanism, known as H2RA -- which blocks the histamine receptors that trigger acid. Sounded good to me.

Chaos with intent to weaken and destroy the one thing that defends the foundation of the United States, the nuclear family.

The message pushed at this minority is the same as the message pushed at the blacks. You are oppressed. The white man hates you and wants you dead. You have to defend yourself and all your fellow 'insert group here'.

There are a few brave one like Martina Navratilova, but otherwise they're not doing much. A few years ago, Andrew Sullivan (whose whole identity centers on his gayness) wrote a column where he oh-so delicately and respectfully pointed out that the trans facts/activism (gender is fluid, etc.) erased homosexuality. You can't be a man only attracted to men if men and women are indistinguishable/fluid/whatever one identifies on that day. It was an excellent response to the trans stuff, but then. . . nothing. Not aware of him pushing back, and he certainly didn't attract any other prominent gays to his side.
Sadly, I suspect he and others will respectfully disagree while standing back, because they can't stomach siding/agreeing with the icky Right.

To first order one can say Easter is the first Sunday *after* the first full Moon occuring *on or after* the Spring Equinox.

That will get you the Western Easter calculation fairly well. But then, the ecclesiastical equinox is always Mar. 21. So, first full Moon on or after the 21st. And then, first full Moon is not the actual astronomical event, but a modified lunar calendar.

Well the Gregorian reform of the Julian calendar is well known, they also reformed the lunar calendar in use to make it much more accurate and correspond very closely to the astronomical full Moon.

There is a 300/400 year cycle with that lunar correction, amounting to corrections of the Metonic Cycle.

It was almost certainly not an attack, and not much time has passed - especially not for a government investigation, and especially not for an investigation involving multiple governments.

Take the OceanGate Titan disaster as a comparison. That was a comparatively small incident where we know what happened. We don't know the details (what specifically caused the pressure vessel failure, what led up to the event, who knew what, etc.), but we know approximately what happened because the sub imploded. It is what it is. That was ten months ago.

Nearly a year of multiple governments investigating and analyzing and damn little in terms of conclusions. For something fairly small time in comparison.

The difference between the Western and Eastern Orthodox Easter calculations is the Orthodox still use the Julian calendar, and so it's Mar 21st Julian, which is currently 13 days behind the Gregorian.

Their lunar calendar is also uncorrected, and is currently about 5 days behind the astronomical full Moon.

Even when the astronomical full Moon occurs after Mar 21st Julian, this 5 day difference is why their Easter is usually a week later.

Next year, however, both the Western and Eastern Easter will land on the same date.

His reply in Matt 24 skips the 1st question, "when shall all these things be?, (the destruction of the temple) and goes directly to the second, what shall be the sign of thy coming and the end of the age. See 24:6, "... but the end is not yet."
Also, for Him to have been speaking of 70AD, you'd have to be able to tell me who it was that committed the abomination of desolation in 24:15. A description of that event is in 2Thess 2:4.

272 I read that Z man in Ukraine is now talking negotiation. Guess he sees the money tree drying up or ran out of men for the Russians to kill.

The army commander he fired a few months ago had stated their was no way for the Ukes to win and they should negotiate. And he was apparently limiting offensive action to save lives. Which was unacceptable to lil Z at the time.

Based on the size of their army in the field they've lost way more men then officially claimed. And really why the hell would you want to fight and die to keep the Russian and Russian friendly people in eastern Ukraine within your country? Just so you can then kill them after the war?

You will note that Passover is also about a month late. THe full first full Moon of spring is dubbed the Paschal Moon (The Pink Moon in the Injun naming).

I know the Jewish lunar calendar used for this was reformed, but don't know the details. Anyway, their proper Paschal Moon is the next full Moon in April, due to a leap month being added this time.

Note this corresponds to 2024 being a true blue Moon year (August), an extra full Moon in an astronomical season.

Nearly a year of multiple governments investigating and analyzing and damn little in terms of conclusions. For something fairly small time in comparison.


Since the Feds have already threatened the insurers to come after every dollar, considering also the amount of money involved, the lawyers will certainly have their own investigators, and there will certainly be Super Bowl tickets and college funds established for players within government.

There will be stakeholders to this incident falling out of the ceiling to get in on this deal, and each and every one of them will be bringing in friendly investigators into the fold to work these interlopers into the pay-out narrative.

The investigation will look a lot like researchers spinning grant requests for that sweet Climate Change research money, and delivering results as a reward to their patrons.

296 >>>COVID-19 gave Biden a justification for his 2020 "basement campaign," but that excuse won't hold water in 2024. Even worse, as I've noted before, the Biden we saw in 2020 was visibly slower and weaker than the vice president we were so happy to see leave Washington in 2017 — and 2024 Biden is no 2020 Biden. "A vote for Biden is actually a vote for Harris" needs to be hammered home again and again.


The Biden Campaign and the Junta (BIRM) are running a Moveable Basement Campaign. They send Joe on day trips a couple times a week, to speak slogans to small, carefully selected groups of people. Or they send Joe on multi-day trips to attend campaign "receptions" or fundraisers, attended only by the filthy rich faithful. I expect the Handlers are now working 23 hours a day on methods to prevent anti-Israel protesters from infiltrating the short slogan-yelling public events. The Handlers are running a charade to claim Joe doesn't need to hold press conferences because he often talks to the press and answers their questions. Yeah, he answers one, maybe two. shouted questions before boarding Marine One or Air Force One.

Joe is as effectively cocooned as in 2020.

Milutin Milankovitch, of Milankovitch Cycle fame, Serbian astronomer and mathematician, was also an expert delegate to an Orthodox Synod in 2023. They proposed a scheme to reconcile the dates of Easter and come up with something that all Christendom could agree on.

They proposed just using the actual astronomical events of equinox and full Moon. The only ambiguity would then be which time zone the next Sunday occurred in. They proposed used the local mean time of the meridian passing through the tomb of Christ, with the Church of the Holy Sepluchre serving that purpose.

In principle, this was agreed to. But nobody has executed it yet. It's only been 100 years.

336 >>CNN featured Sen. Raphael Warnock calling out critics of "Transgender Visibility Day" on a segment discussing "the rise of Christian nationalism"


The baiting, then the scolding for reacting, gets so tiresome.
Step 1: Christian nationalists are our biggest threat!
Step 2: Biden openly insults Christians on one of its holiest days, and people criticize him for it.
Step 3: SEE!?!?!? THOSE CHRISTIANS ARE SO ANGRY!!!

338 "A vote for Biden is actually a vote for Harris" needs to be hammered home again and again.

My God whoever said this is an idiot.

Why would you announce that Biden an old useless pile of shit has a young vibrant Historic First immediate backup should he win?

Because she's "unpopular"? Half this country barely had any idea who the fuck she is. Some people really don't understand emotional persuasion and most of them are on our own idiot side.

"A vote for Biden is a vote for a doddering pile of shit who doesn't know what he had for breakfast." That's all you need.

339 As much as I love me a good conspiracy, there’s only so much you can do with bridges to keep them from collapsing. It was an accident due to shipping companies hiring 3rd world cheap crews.

340 "No evidence can be recovered at the crash, actually or on purpose."

Fortunately for us, the entire propulsion and electrical generation and distribution system on the ship is intact.

Contamination is pretty easy to rule out.

Hell, in a former life as the senior enlisted engineer on some rather large ships, the folks that did this type of testing all worked for me.

It's simple enough that a caveman can do it.

They don't care. The Left knows Biden - to whatever extent he's sentient - approves of this.

All they want is all the low info Christians to think what a Nice and Good Christian Biden is, that he would never be the one to do this. No one is digging any deeper than that.

I never thought of it or heard of it before, but it does make sense that some cargo would have to be kept refrigerated. I can't say that I've ever seen a refrigeration unit hanging out of a container.

Good picture. How many amps do you suppose just one of them draws? Now multiply by X. There's probably some theoretical limit to how many should be on the ship.

353 "Good picture. How many amps do you suppose just one of them draws? Now multiply by X. There's probably some theoretical limit to how many should be on the ship."


I'm guessing that it's not a theoretical limit, but a calculated and posted limit.

And there should be some type of electrical load shedding built into the electrical distribution system to protect the system from too much draw.

I genuinely can not imagine a system that would not have that protection built into the design.

One could only hope that the reefer units were segregated from the ships engine and control systems. There *were* rumors of electrical outages prior to leaving port.

I'm looking at electrical requirements for those things and they are not small. Able to keep temps at minus 25 degrees centigrade.

355 "One could only hope that the reefer units were segregated from the ships engine and control systems. "

I would expect that it would be a design requirement.

Vital= Electrical circuits that effect speed and/or maneuverability. Communications and essential lighting, navigation lights. Designated fire pumps

Non-Vital= pretty much the rest of it.

356 >merely declaring the emperor has no clothes will not be enough since uttering those very words could lead to quite literally a death sentence

Yes, that's the point of the fable. Fables don't choose their archetypes casually. Why an emperor? Why not a rich merchant, that works just as well on the surface. Why a child? Why not a fool, or a beggar?

It _has_ to be an emperor, because the point of the fable is that everyone in the fable knows that if they mock the emperor he'll have them executed. It _has_ to be a child, because not even an emperor can get away with executing a child.

The current regime has, like Stalin, demonstrated that _no one_ can mock the emperor with impunity. Not even the children.

359 Eunice Kennedy Shriver, founder of Special Olympics, a sports organization for persons with intellectual disabilities.

What makes an athlete eligible for Special Olympics? If a person is identified as having a developmental disability with functional limitations in both general learning and adaptive skills, it must still be determined by an agency or a professional whether or not the functional limitations are solely due to intellectual disability or a closely related developmental disability. If the functional limitations are solely due to physical disabilities, emotional disturbance, behavior disorders, specific learning disabilities, visual impairments, or sensory disabilities, this person is not eligible for Special Olympics. (By far more exclusions than I knew.)

FJB loves (most) Kennedys. To that end, it's likely true he has no idea what Transsexualism is, or does his administration care if ADA Act compliant, or likely any farther than it gives uniqueness & recognition in historical terms & votes now. (Fed exec. & legis. branch dodges.)

361 The interesting thing about Biden’s denial of the Trans Day proclamation is that it evidences that somewhere in the decrepit demented husk of a man is the politician who realizes that it was damn stupid idea.

362 About that Bird Flu thang???
One of the issues with US Dairy herds is that they are nearly all essentially clones...Between AI and implanted embryos from a very small "Family" of bulls and line bred heifers, any genetic attributes made for the entire "Species", also guarantees any genetic weakness is there as well.
Each genetic subset of sea lions everywhere in the world is in a similar position, All of them are susceptible to any epidemic that may take place. ...(because all had been hunted down to near extinction levels,many times by indigenous hunter gatherers long before the "Evil whyte man" arrived, the widespread raising of cattle has replaced seals as a food source)
Last fall in Argentina 96% of the entire "New Pup" population died of Bird Flu.
Perhaps even more concerning is that a couple of different Penguin species have recently had a "1st Bird flu death discovered"
