The Morning Rant: Minimalist Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

Socialism inevitably leads to totalitarian governments.
Socialism inevitably leads to police states.
Socialism inevitably leads to death.

And that is what is coming to Hong Kong.

I can game out lots of scenarios that lead to a relaxation of Chinese control over Hong Kong, but they are long shots. The smart money is betting the over on number of deaths, and the under on the whole "Protesters Win!"

Police surround last holdouts at Hong Kong university

About 100 anti-government protesters remained holed up at a Hong Kong university Tuesday, unsure what to do next as food supplies dwindled and a police siege of the campus entered its third day.

Police played a waiting game after 10 days of some of the most intense protests the city has seen in more than five months of often violent unrest.

The government has stood firm, rejecting most of the protesters’ demands, even as they shut down major roads and trains during rush hour every day last week, turned several university campuses into fortresses and blocked a major road tunnel, which remained shut Tuesday.

In Beijing, the National People’s Congress criticized the high court in Hong Kong for striking down a ban on wearing face masks at the protests. China has taken a tough line on the protests and said that restoring order is the city’s highest priority.

Ah yes...restoring order. Sounds like hooliganism or usurious Jews or teaching reading to girls is running rampant.

See, it's all the same, all over the world and all through history. When government is powerful it violates the natural rights of its citizens. That is immutable. So any time some liberal virtue-signalling asshat wants to know why we need guns, point at Hong Kong.

The only reason the ChiComs haven't rolled the tanks is because Hong Kong is visible to the world. So they have to tread lightly or even LeBron James might say something unflattering about the largest and most pervasive police state in history.

They will start the killing soon, if they haven't already. And whatever you might see or read in the media, it is worse on the ground. The Chinese government cannot lose this battle, or the same thing will eventually happen in hundreds of cities across China. And that will mean death and destruction that will rival the cultural revolution or Pol Pot.

We are indeed living in interesting times.

Absol-freaking-lutley. This is why, even if you grant every other pro-big-government premise (that there are economies of scale, that government is highly efficient, that planning is effective, etc.), you *still* shouldn't do it because they will absolutely *will* enslave or kill you. It is an iron law of big, central government.

Subsidiarity helps prevent this;
Subsidiarity is an organizing principle that matters ought to be handled by the smallest, lowest or least centralized competent authority. Political decisions should be taken at a local level if possible, rather than by a central authority.

Yes, this leads to some redundancy, variance, inefficiency, overlap, complexity, etc. It also, however, mediates the ability (if not the tendency) of government to enslave and murder the populace.

30 I'm sure the Chinese have learned Stalin's lesson well; in fact I'll bet they're better at it than he ever was. When there a lot of important political killings to be done, it is never done by troops, in daylight, in the streets. So Messy! So unflattering! No, what happens is that first, key people are identified, and then they begin to disappear, one by one, in the middle of the night. If their families complain, they can disappear too.

205 Charles-Genevieve-Louis-Auguste-Andre-Timothee d'Eon de Beaumont (5 October 1728 -' 21 May 1810), usually known as the Chevalier d'Eon, was a French diplomat, spy, Freemason[2] and soldier who fought in the Seven Years' War. D'Eon had androgynous physical characteristics and natural abilities as a mimic and a spy. D'Eon appeared publicly as a man and pursued masculine occupations for 49 years, although during that time d'Eon successfully infiltrated the court of Empress Elizabeth of Russia by presenting as a woman. For 33 years, from 1777, d'Eon dressed as a woman, identifying as female. Doctors who examined d'Eon's body after death discovered "male organs in every respect perfectly formed", but also feminine characteristics.

Leaked? What does that mean? I never, I assure you, leaked information to uncleared individuals. In the pursuit of justice, there may have been discussions of material that may or may not have been classified but there was no intent and, as we know, any reasonable prosecutor requires intent and knowledge and I had neither, if such things happened at all.

I read an interesting (and super long) essay on SlateStarCodex over the weekend about how in the early 2000s the online left was animated by atheism and around 2010 they all seamlessly morphed into woke-ism. He posits (using fancier words than I'm going to) that they swapped the original sin of "believing in a fictional sky bully" for the original sin of "racism, sexism, homophobia" and kept everything else the same. And he blames social media, because in his words "Fisking doesn't work on Twitter, but 'you're racist!' does".

He thinks they're about due to swap the original sin source again, which should be interesting.

We became a superpower back when government agents who weren't inept and corrupt represented probably as much as 25% of the workforce and that minority got the job done while the rest of them schemed incompetently.

I'll bet the number of moderately competent and fairly honest government agents can still be measured in whole numbers, but I have serious doubts as to whether it could be calculated in whole percentages.

1) Coach a "whistleblower" to leak that Trump had committed a crime
2) leak rumors of this crime to the press
3) build a frenzy
4) get squish Republicans on board and he have them demand Trump release the Whistleblower complaint
5) hold hearings and read Scheiff's Tale in as the "transcript" of the call--where Trump demanded EIGHT times the president of Ukraine manufacture dirt on Biden! All the allowed witnesses would confirm same.
6) public support would be over 60%--pass impeachment in the House by Thanksgiving on obstructing justice (for refusing to turn over the complaint and the actual transcript)
7) let it fail in the Senate at 51-49 in favor of removal
8; have cake and eat it too

All of that because they guaranteed they'd keep the Republicans from any part of the investigation while their deep state friends would make sure to lie to Trump about grave, horrible, unthinkable danger of releasing the transcript.

They never thought Trump world release the transcript.

But remember: They didn't know what was in the transcript either!!
Recall, their first response when it was released was that " . . . " had to mean words were removed. Not, you know, a pause.
Now, if they had read the transcript, their first response would have been pointing out the parts that were crimes.

Notice how they're trying to make the fact that he kept the transcript on a secret server a crime? Where their loyal drones couldn't access or edit it?

409 They never thought Trump world release the transcript.



But remember: They didn't know what was in the transcript either!!

Recall, their first response when it was released was that " . . . " had to mean words were removed. Not, you know, a pause.

Now, if they had read the transcript, their first response would have been pointing out the parts that were crimes.



Notice how they're trying to make the fact that he kept the
transcript on a secret server a crime? Where their loyal drones couldn't
access or edit it?






Posted by: RoyalOil, Vicroy Canadian Territories at November 19, 2019 10:34 AM

Remember, vindman tried to get to the transcript and alter it to reflect what he had "heard" about the call. Unfortunately for him, it had been moved to a classified server in the White House that he did not have access to. That's when the plan started falling apart. Because it would have read the way the democrats claim it did if he had been able to access the transcript.


They believed with absolute certainty that Trump would never release the transcript just like they believed that hillary was going to win in a landslide.

In fairness (not that the deserve any), they had pretty good reason to believe that the transcript wouldn't get released by the President. It is basically unprecedented and involves secrecy between states. Releasing it was a high-risk move and if they thought Trump wouldn't have the balls to do it, they weren't being entirely irrational.

They were engaging in criminally wishful thinking, but it probably wasn't madness. Trump releasing the transcript - even with the permission of his counterparty in Ukraine - was a baller move.

511 Maybe Trump cleverly left Vindman in the chain of insiders to use him to draw in evidence on the others (I guess that is the line of "5D chess" thinking) ... and maybe that is all about to come down on the DeepState hard.


It seems to me Trump would be better served by replacing all those tools with real patriots, to do the actual work, instead of running a "mole hunt", or whatever they might be doing. There are too many of those "ah es, Trump left them in power to entrap the other resistance traitors" imo, to be anything but status quo swampiness.

But they don't reveal The Plan, so we hope that the last three years was all leading up to a bunch of major indictments, convictions. ticky tocky, who holds the glocky?

Or all the Antifa rioters on Inauguration day (and many other cases).

Or the original sweetheart plea deal for Epstein.

Plea deals are a tool the government has. They can be used for many things.

If you're on the team, they're used to reward you.

If you pose a threat to the team, they're used to silence you.

If you're on the other team they're used to punish you.

And, if you have information that can help the team, they're used to make you talk.

No reason to suppose this is any different. The State has already conspired to make the Epstein killing go away, and I don't expect they've had a come-to-Jesus moment and changed their minds.

The Morning Report - 11/19/19

goebpals.jpg

Good morning kids. Another day and another star witness who's going to blow this thing wide open and nail Trump. This time it's some career foreign service tool named David Holmes, the political officer at the US embassy in Ukraine who claimed to have overheard a phone call between Trump and ambassador Gordon Sondland the day after the crucial conversation between Presidents Trump and Zelensky that's at the heart of the drive to impeach. Aside from the fact that Holmes is yet another bureaucratic cog in the Deep State tyrannical machine, that he hates Trump and his foreign policy, and that his so-called damning evidence is based on copious notes he took of his colleagues remarks about the Presidents' call, he himself did not hear the call and in fact had been drinking when he heard the conversation between Trump and Sondland. Considering the fact that he offers nothing new, had been drinking and that the transcript of the call that got all this crap going has been released and is indeed "a perfect call," there is no there there.

But still they persist. Nancy Palsi, Schiff-for-Brains and the entire Democrat-Left-Media Complex is going to go full steam ahead for the next 51 weeks, despite the fact that it will absolutely destroy whatever illusion of a functioning political process America once might have had and permanently damage any chance of uniting what is now a deeply divided citizenry. No matter what the media claims, this is not playing at all well in Peoria. So tone deaf in their arrogance and haughtiness are the Dems that they think the American people are just too fucking stupid and inbred to understand quid pro quo, and are using focus groups to try and come up with simpler words for us filthy knuckle-dragging rubes to comprehend, like bribery and abuse of power. It doesn't matter what they call it; the American people by and large are not only not buying it but are coming to the conclusion that this entire thing is engineered as a means to persecute and illegally oust Trump. Some have even said, look, we're less than a year out from the election, so why not just let the people decide. This is where Palsi let's the strings holding up her face slip where she reveals much not only about how they feel about this election but how the Globalist so-called "elite" look upon their entitlement to power. We cannot take a chance on ignorant masses going against us like they did in 2016 (and '80 and '84 for that matter). It also not so subtly confirms what we have long suspected, insofar as elections, at least on a national level and sometimes at a state level are and have been a rigged game.

Other than that, the other major development is that Trump is hinting that he might agree to testify in the investigation. Like so many times before, I think he is calculating yet again to maneuver the Dems into another trap. Stay tuned.

Anyway, links from around the world, across the nation and up your street. Have a better one and remain blessed.

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

39 President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday he told U.S. President Donald Trump during talks in Washington last week that Turkey would not give up on the Russian S-400 missile defence systems it procured this year despite protests from its NATO ally.



Speaking to members of his AK Party in parliament, Erdogan also said he had told Trump that if the United States maintained its "uncompromising


stance" on the F-35s, Turkey would have to seek alternatives to meet its medium-term defence needs.

102 I have a serious question for the Horde.

Last night Rusty Nail and Chi-town Jerry made a case that the election is pretty much over, and Trump will lose.

The argument is that the slow drip drip of impeachment and negative media has already poisoned the well, and that the urbans and suburban wine moms are going to ensure he loses. Couple this with the fact that the Dems will ratchet up the fraud machine next year, and there is a solid case for this to be correct.

My argument against is looking at job approval as a stand in for voter support and seeing an average in RCP of 44%. In 2016, Trump had a core base of 42% that could not be moved from him regardless of what was said. If this number moved into the 30%, then I would agree with the Eeoyre analysis.

But let's take it as a given that Trump will lose, that nothing can be done to change that. Right now Iowa has Buttigieg leading Iowa, Warren leading NH, and Biden leading NV and SC. Assuming that Biden falters, that probably means we will have President Warren. The above mentioned wine moms are going all in for the first woman president.

So how do you wargame surviving a Warren administration? Obviously the first order of business is to move money out of stock and into bonds, since the economy is going to tank on the threat of reversing tax reform.

But then there is her threat of a wealth tax. How do you protect your retirement savings from outright theft by the government?

And lastly there is the question of timing. When do you start making financial moves? When Warren looks likely to win the nomination? After the conventions? Or wait until after the election?

What are your thoughts on surviving Queen Socialist?

Sort of like the Clinton Foundation. It was raking in hundreds of millions of dollars a year when Hillz was SOS and running for prezzy.

But since she lost to Trump (and had nothing more to sell), the foundation can't even get enough suckers to donate so that the grifters can cover their outrageous expenses, and now it's operating in the red.

But yeah, no reason to think there was influence-peddling going on there. No reason at all.

115 GLAAD is already telling CFA that they need to support health and safety initiatives for gay employees (Why should gay employees be treated any differently than regular employees as far as Health and safety ? I mean if employees were bullying any other employee the person should be talked to, but since CFA was all about friendliness I don't think it's happening. And if floors are slippery straight people can fall down the same way gays do.So stupid. They shouldn't be a special class because of who they sleep with.

123 I read that article last night on the 19-year old ex-tranny. It's impossible to imagine just what is happening to this young generation as they are constantly assaulted with pro-tranny imagery and support. They are being sold this bill of goods that says all their troubles will go away if they just give in to this totally 'normal' process of chopping off their body parts and taking very dangerous hormones. From an adult's viewpoint, it's absolute, sheer madness witnessing this full-throttle push getting these kids to buy this horrendous lie. I think a lot of kids are obviously jumping on this bandwagon because it's a fad (demonic and destructive as it is), but there are also a lot of very vulnerable young people out there who are being told it's a ticket to happiness. These are kids struggling with abuse at home, struggling with their identities (not unlike any teenager) and are being talked into this hideous process by very nefarious people. No slowing down, no introspection and analysis as to why they feel trans, nothing but push push push onto the operating table. The consequences are going to be terrible for 1000s of young people who are, unfortunately, being brought up at a time when this lunacy is being promoted as a miracle cure to all that ails them. It's unconscionable. Simply unconscionable.

I believe the majority of the money that the US sent was funneled through the EU and what the Mullahs actually received were untraceable Euros.



President Barack Obama approved the $400 million transfer, which he had announced in January as part of the Iran nuclear deal.
The money was flown into Iran on wooden pallets stacked with Swiss francs, euros and other currencies as the first installment of
a $1.7 billion settlement resolving claims at an international tribunal at The Hague over a failed arms deal under the time of the Shah.

176 You want to put pressure on corporate CFA, go after their franchisees as they are more accessible and have more to lose from corporate wokeness. Suggest that they have fundraisers for FCA and the Salvation Army as recompense for corporate.

Leftists always go for the top to pressure because they figure the top will pay them off and/or capitulate to demands to get "peace". Conservatives would be better served to apply pressure to the local CFA's which will then go to the top. Franchisees have reasons to support their local communities and charities while corporate is chasing dreams of future profits in foreign and unfavorable lands.

Ultimately, that places corporate in a very difficult position as it can't easily repudiate its own franchisees without really running into problems. Unhappy franchisees often result in declining sales.

185 I would imagine that the Fellowship of Christian Athletes is an organization that has a good number of black members...especially in the south. (Someone will correct me if I'm wrong about that I'm sure).

That could cause a YUGE backlash.

186 Good post. Walt Heyer of "Sex Change Regret" is doing a wonderful ministry and he gets demonized by people for it.

--

I've been to Walt's site a few times now and read some of the personal stories there. I do truly feel sad and sorry for the people who came out on the other side knowing what a terrible mistake it was to have transitioned. They're left with deep mental scars, deep physical scars, and deep regret. I have little sympathy for the fad jumper-on'ers...but those with true mental illness from whatever their struggles might be who are lullabied into this craziness by what is becoming an enormous Trans Lobby make my heart hurt. I feel for them. And I condemn in the strongest possible terms those that are promulgating this.

189 Leftists always go for the top to pressure because they figure the top will pay them off and/or capitulate to demands to get "peace".

Understand that this is the CFA Foundation. CFA Foundation is all about spending money, not on earning it. For that reason, the hiring profile is much different for a non-profit Foundation than it is for a profit-earning business entity.

On top of that, Leftists hate profit, but are also highly attracted to money, and huge quantities of money that can be spent emotionally rather than practically is a very powerful magnet.

Leftists are attracted to money to be spent on causes. CFA-Foundation is exactly that entity. Leftists have infiltrated CFA-Foundation because EEOC regs pretty much remove any filters.

It goes to rot, as all other Foundations have demonstrated. Even the NRA has gone to rot because of the model.

The wife and I are at a decision point in regards to our 401k, cash most of it out and pay cash for a new house when we move next year or leave it alone, take the mandatory withdrawals and put them in the bank and hope there will be something left for our son to inherit in about 20 years.

You probably need to re-read the posts. Everything from lamenting the decision to speculating why, to projecting the future.

I don't believe that I'm seeing this "Spend it this way or I will sever our business relationship".

The closest to that sentiment is me, where I say that the previous position was a motivating factor in choosing CFA over a competitor. CFA has simply stated that they want to destroy that advantage and now we all speculate on the response.

And there is a Bureau of Prisons hearing in the Senate today. It will no doubt be drowned out by the fake impeachment hearings but I bet there will be some questions about Epstein.

335 158 Dave in Fla,
These are a few thoughts,

Mitigation strategies whether or not Trump wins re election are needed because 2024 is only five years away and the Dems, assuming that they do not win in 2020, could do so in 2024.

A lot depends on your age, risk taking strategies, and assets. In bad times, the rich generally make out ok, the poor do what they must to survive, but the middle class is ruined.

If you are rich, then think about a safe haven and a person with money can always find a welcome somewhere. If you are poor or middle class--then the answers are not so clear.

Basically, you will have to rely on self, family, and social networks during bad times and cities are not a good place during downturns for either so relocation might be necessary. Develop relationships with neighbors and the local community which will be more difficult in cities.

Conservation of capital rather than potential gains is the order of the day--the more liquid the asset, the easier to seize directly "to save social security or some such rot" but the more illiquid assets are harder to shield from taxes. In really bad times, your wealth should be portable and concealable. In really bad times, food and drink are wealth. There is a reason that jewelry and other such become popular in times of tumult.

Plans to mitigate food shortages, potable water and sewage issues, violent and property crimes, and lack of decent medical care can become issues during times of tumult.

Developing container or raised bed gardening skills is a cheap hobby, gives you truly organic fresh food if you wish, and can stretch a basic diet of beans and rice via greens, peppers, tomatoes, etc.

For some tested advice, a guy wrote a guide to surviving bad economic times and political turmoil centered on his experiences in Argentina during crises around 2000 and its still in print. Amazon still has it. For grimmer times, there is a similar book about a guy's experiences in surviving in Bosnia during the Yugoslavia breakup and civil war.

That's something a lot of people in our country have yet to digest.


Fake "hero worship" that's manufactured by our enemies in the media. We saw that with TFG, who definitely didn't qualify as any sort of "hero." The types of people who that's designed to capture are shallow and dense, the same types of people that the educational system pumps out these days, stoopid, easily led and manipulated.

That's why we should always be aware of Principles and Truth instead of smiling faces. Promote American values and you see who aligns with you, much like PDT is doing.

371 338, It is similar in a way that Cubans have had to evolve in Castro's Cuba. They have kept 1950's cars still running through ingenuity for example and figured out about every way to prepare rice and beans.

There was also, not well reported, real hardships in England post-war with rationing continuing long after WWII and severe constraints on consumerism. Neither dealt with political turmoil as did Argentina but you see the same economic lessons in Cuba and England that existed in Argentina.

I grew up on a farm and remember the old folks talking about the Great Depression. No one had a lot of money in the country but most could and did keep their families fed, clothed, warm, and had the ability, land, and knowledge to make it happen. Strong bonds in communities and family helped.

The city poor often had it pretty bad in comparison.

That's pretty much all the Senate wants to do and can effectively do considering the partisan divide of the House and Senate.


Also judges below the SCOTUS essentially don't matter in an age where a district court judge can issue nation wide TRO's.

412 "Washington is a feudal bureaucratic empire with a small suggestion box"

Good analogy, but certain oligarchs have hotlines to the decision makers. Soros clearly ranks way up there, and the revolving door of Goldman-Sachs/WH/IMF makes sure the global banks have dominant powers.

The flow of money from outside interests fuels DC's cocktail illuminati cartel. China owns some key players, the Saudis, DWS had her Paki boyfriend that had data on most of Congress, Epstein was "friend" to half of DC, mafia/union leaders roam the halls freely -- breathtaking really, and the average bureaucrat naturally becomes enamored with the Beltway Spotlight, feeling their well paid position is not humble public servant, but an ordination into royalty.

423 G'morning, Horde. I saw a lot of chatter yesterday (wasn't too tuned in - this is our busy season at work) about a bunch of NR and former NR types putting Victor Davis Hanson on blast about his being a regressive rube and that he penned a rebuttal of some kind.

Is this remotely accurate and does anyone possibly have any links out to that? I'd like read it if possible.

That's sad.

"Radio Times also interviewed Sir Michael Palin, another member of the comedy troupe, who said there was still a 'sparkle' left in his fellow Python Terry Jones despite his diagnosis in 2015 with a form of dementia that affects his ability to communicate."

The current Labor part is just as radical and ore ruthless than the post WWII socialists. If they get control of the country the economic collapse (not downturns or recession) of Britain in the 70's will pale in comparison. That is what got Thatcher elected but I doubt that would happen this time round.

429 Thanks whig.

I'm assuming that we won't enter "the burning times". Where I am right now is I have a couple million invested in blue chips across a couple different funds and brokerages. I don't self invest, but I do allow professionals manage the portfolio.

I'm about 7 years out from retirement.

So my personal planning is what to do to keep the thieves away once the socialists get into power, be it 2020 or 2024. The stock market is not a good long term strategy for most of my savings. While it has done very well under Trump, once he leaves office then it is going to cool off, and it is getting close to time to move into less risk investments (bonds) anyway.

But Warren and her anti-wall street plans make me think what the next step could be. I'm not a fan of gold, because ultimately it is useless. You can't eat it, drink it, or wear it. If we reach a point where the bond market is subject to economic catastrophe, then the gold market will be equally disrupted.

I am considering buying a cabin up in the Georgia mountains in the next year or two as a place to park capital outside the markets, and also as a vacation place. But it could also serve as a good place to live with plenty of guns and ammo if things really go south.

Think it would have anyway? If not for impeachment, they'd use something else. The price of oil moved a percent or two in one direction or another. A poor person was wronged and it is clearly a national disaster. Some aristocrat overseas was seen doing something bad or good. There's a great new movie out.

It's disturbing but the upside is fragging will be easier if it comes down to it. A commissioned officer was widely quoted recently (unbelievable that even happened) acknowledging the growing rift.

You have enough wealth to have options and so you might want to prepare several bolt holes. Mountains are the traditional hidey hole for the persecuted but you need to be around enough to build ties and relationships. Being the other during bad times is not desirable for security reasons.

If you have noted Latin American architecture which is similar to that of Roman villas, compounds and walls and a central interior courtyard are designed to be defensible but not look like much on the outside. A lot of times, the outside looks rundown and low rent while the insides are opulent. That can help with property taxes, avoiding display of wealth that can attract bad attention, and be defensible if need be.

One of the ways that you can hedge your bets on finances is old coins that have silver and gold. These are collectibles and can accrue value as such but ultimately retain a reserve value as bullion in an emergency. The other would be a small business that provides a needful service but can serve as a tax shelter. That will depend on the area.

The Caribbean island nations that a lot of expatriates like are not really a good hidey hole because essentially you are trapped and outlanders will be the first to be taken to the cleaners if the world economy sinks.

If you must on island living that has discreet banking, think somewhere like the Channel Islands, Isle of Man, etc. where traditions of a strong rule of law protecting property etc. exists.

Other countries are far too varied to discuss in a short post.

529 489, turnout concern folks.

Down ballot races were fine for Republicans in both elections, it was the poor candidates at the top of the ticket. Rispone was an inexperienced candidate running against an incumbent that was viewed as doing a good job. The incumbent got the benefit of the doubt but Republicans pretty much swept lower races and have very strong control of the legislature.

KY, something similar, Republicans retained the House and Senate, won all the other executive races at issue and lost because the incumbent Republican had the worst approval rating of all the governors in the country. VA, it was because a tidal wave of money, gerrymandering for the Dems in legislative seats by the judiciary, the lack of candidates by the GOP for seats, and demographic changes that caused enough losses to flip. Despite that, at the last count that I saw, Republicans had more votes for their leg. candidates than the Dems. and they should prepare lawsuits to shove it up the court's bottom for the forthcoming Dem gerrymandering.

MS became more republican and an uninspiring candidate won the governor's race over the last statewide popular Dem Attorney General.

One issue was his alleged abrasiveness--he was a native of New Hampshire who migrated to KY so the old yankee-southerner conflict. One of the main issue though was probably making the teachers mad because he raised their contributions to the pension plan as KY's pension liabilities make it fourth worse in the country in finances. The other was requiring medicaid copays etc.s which hurt him in Appalachian counties. He lost by about 5,000 votes but his approval rating was in the 30's in July.

I would not be surprised that Mitch McConnell also back stabbed him as the incumbent ran poorly in Jefferson County (Louisville) which is Mitch's backyard. The incumbent ran against Mitch during his most recent Senate race in the primary so no love lost there.

Here is the thing, Trump probably resembles Jesse Helms in NC in polling. Jesse was always on the list of endangered candidates via polling but because of a strong core of support, always ended up winning against a variety of the best candidates that the Dems could scrape up. He always ran a take no prisoners campaign against the Dems with no apologies. Thus, he won repeatedly in a Democratic dominated state at the time. I suspect that the same is true with Trump.

THE QUOTES OF THE DAY


Quote I

Now that I’m all healed from the surgeries, I regret them. The result of the bottom surgery looks like a Frankenstein hack job at best, and that got me thinking critically about myself. I had turned myself into a plastic-surgery facsimile of a woman, but I knew I still wasn’t one. I became (and to an extent, still feel) deeply depressed. Nathaniel (Last Name Withheld)


Quote II

“The industry as a whole is focused on creating a menu of CUAS sensor options that can be adapted to different use cases and price points,” “As the threat outpaces government responsiveness and legislative decision making, drone threats and less conventional countermeasures will continue to be an issue.”Christopher Williams, CEO of Citadel Defense Company


Quote III

“It was a convenient place to stay. I mean I’ve gone through this in my mind so many times. At the end of the day, with a benefit of all the hindsight that one can have, it was definitely the wrong thing to do.

“But at the time I felt it was the honourable and right thing to do and I admit fully that my judgement was probably coloured by my tendency to be too honourable but that’s just the way it is.”Prince Andrew


Quote IV

“When there is a tension, we want to make sure we’re being clear. We think this is going to be helpful,” Tassopoulos said of the company’s decision to pull its support from the charities. “It’s just the right thing to do: to be clear, caring, and supportive and do it in the community.” Tim Tassopoulos

Does Burger King have the balls to say, "Fuck You Vegans". Time will tell.

(NEWSER) – Burger King has been hit with a class-action lawsuit arguing that the chain's Impossible Burger isn't the vegan sandwich it's advertised to be, because it's typically cooked on the same grills as meat. That means the Impossible comes with meat residue, which the menu doesn't mention, in at least some locations. Phillip Williams wants damages after ordering the vegan alternative in Atlanta, TMZ reports, and he wants the chain to cook vegan and meat burgers on separate grills. Burger King had revealed in fine print over the summer that all burgers would be grilled in the same broilers.

The suit was filed Monday in federal court in Florida, per the New York Post, which notes that the chain says in a footnote on its menu online, "For guests looking for a meat-free option, a non-broiler method of preparation is available upon request." A company spokesman declined to comment on the suit, which was filed on behalf of several other vegans. One customer tweeted that she asked for her Impossible Burger to be cooked in its own pan or grill only to be told, "We don't do that here." Another posted that a different location had agreed to cook separately. (McDonald's is testing its own meatless burger.


Phillip Williams must be a sad individual.

She hasn't been in office that long and the sleaze is already dripping off of her.

ATLANTA – The two luxury GMC Denalis used to chauffeur Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms around town were purchased for a combined $175,000 without the apparent authorization of Atlanta City Council. The city had designated the money for police vehicles used by patrol officers and detectives, reported AJC.

City Council approved $2.6 million for 91 new police vehicles in the summer of 2017. However, according to the AJC report, the Denalis for the mayor’s use were not on the list of vehicles to be purchased in the approved ordinance.

Nevertheless, the city finance department used money for the Denalis from those funds after Bottoms was sworn into office in January, 2018. The AJC report did not include a response from the mayor’s office.

A tenured Columbia University professor endorsed terrorism in a speech given at the Palestine Center late last week.

"The Oslo Accords inaugurated this process of liquidating the Palestinian national struggle while the 'Deal of the Century' plans and hopes to conclude it," Professor Joseph Massad said. "The only thing standing in its way is the ongoing Palestinian resistance to Israel, settler colonialism and racism that continues inside Israel and Jerusalem, the West Bank, and Gaza; the ongoing Marches of Return in Gaza; and the armed-resistance of the Izz al-Din Qassam Brigades to Israeli invasions in Gaza."

Former Vice President Joe "Paste Eatin'" Biden has found a group of people he won't pander to. It looks like Biden won't support legalization of marijuana.

Former Vice President Joe Biden says he is not prepared to support ending the federal ban on marijuana until science clarifies "whether or not it is a gateway drug." Taking him at his word, that means Biden, a leading contender for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, will never support marijuana legalization.

During a town hall in Las Vegas on Saturday, Biden said states should be free to legalize marijuana but once again reserved judgment about whether national prohibition should be repealed. "The truth of the matter is, there's not nearly been enough evidence that has been acquired as to whether or not it is a gateway drug," he said. "It's a debate, and I want a lot more before I legalize it nationally. I want to make sure we know a lot more about the science behind it….It is not irrational to do more scientific investigation to determine, which we have not done significantly enough, whether or not there are any things that relate to whether it's a gateway drug or not."


Speaking of Joe Biden and gateway drugs. What was Hunter Biden's gateway drug? Hypocrisy? His old man was his dealer.

Joe Biden, whose own kid somehow managed to avoid arrest and imprisonment for his cocaine habit in the Navy, is out condemning President Trump for pardoning a few military small fry whose draconian sentences didn't match the "crimes" they were convicted of.

A couple have admitted common assault on their neighbour by turning a hosepipe on him in a long-running dispute.

Magistrates at Llandudno, Conwy county, were shown footage of the incident which Mr Burrows had caught on camera.

The couple were given a 12-month conditional discharge.

Now that I'm all healed from the surgeries, I regret them. The result of the bottom surgery looks like a Frankenstein hack job at best, and that got me thinking critically about myself. I had turned myself into a plastic-surgery facsimile of a woman, but I knew I still wasn't one. I became (and to an extent, still feel) deeply depressed.

why is it that France fell to the Germans, when obviously England didn't? My hunch is that it's largely because the French armed forces didn't take seriously enough and/or ignored whatever intelligence and advice Churchill and our generals provided them, but hmmm.

There was a corps of Home Guard (retirees and men who weren't qualified for service). They were led by a bank manager (played by Arthur Lowe).

The Channel Islands were occupied by the Germans, but there weren't plans to defend them in the first place.

BK used to fresh grill each patty and immediately assemble and serve the burger.

Now they cook 'em up by the dozens and put them in a hot tray.

Even the most basic of beef eaters understand what is wrong here.

Apparently no executives at BK actually eat burgers.

150 50, One is the English Channel and then the Brits had radar and some decrypts of Enigma codes by Germans.

Essentially though, the French peaked in readiness to fight prior to Munich conference in 1938. Defeatism though resulted in the opposite of the idiotic "cran" based WWI strategy designed to regain Alsace and Lorraine. Instead, the French spent their money on the Maginot line and then failed to extend it through the Ardennes. The French had probably better overall tanks than the Germans but were deficient in communicating with each other. The French had better or as good airplanes as the Germans but did nothing with them. During the Phony War period when Germans were engaged in Poland, the French could have probably pushed through to the Rhine but sat and did nothing.
This issue was reflected in French politics. The cost of WWI was so great in man and material that it resulted in a permanent split in politics during the Third Republic.

Essentially, the French were fighting a ferocious battle of Left v. Right in politics which led to dismal patronage politics over which generals would command and who would be defense minister. The government itself had a breakdown on the eve of Hitler's invasion of France with the Premier blasting the incompetent Gen. Gamelin and his patron defense minister (who hoped to supplant the Premier via this gambit) threatened to resign in support of Gamelin, Gamelin threatened to resign, then the Premier felt that he must resign too. The invasion of the Germans made them attempt to work together but there was not really the concerted effort as in 1914 to save La Belle France from ravishment by the Germans this time.

As one person put it, the sons of the dedicated fighters in 1914 made a different choice in 1940, they preferred to live. Political leaders can only do so much with that attitude and the split between Left and Right resulted in many of the right preferring the Germans than their own countrymen.

157 If that Japanese sub performs to specs, then you can be confident that there's all kids of pant-shitting going on in the People's Liberation Army Navy.

Which branch, I hasten to point out, doesn't have an exactly sterling record as to it's "return to pier percentage" with IT'S subs.

And while I'm not any kind of an expert in sonar or undersea acoustics, I'd imagine that a Chinese sub is projecting it's own Heavy Metal concert soundwaves through the hull on a constant basis.

The Chinese understand that the U.S. has a plethora of VERY quiet nuke subs, but they also understand that we're playing Realpolotik and Globalpolitik, and really don't want to "rock the boat" with things going hot beneath the waves.

Japan though? NO love lost between those two, to say the least.

And even after seventy years of enforced pacifism, I'd put a lot down on a bet, that Japan will *not* prove to be a Nation to be Fucked With, especially as regards a hostile Chinese incursion into their waters.

208 A website is offering a "dream job" for a holiday-loving person looking to make $1,000 watching 24 Hallmark Christmas movies.
Centurylinkquote.com said the winning "Hallmark Dream Job" applicant will receive $1,000, a streaming service subscription and a "movie watching kit" including cookies, cocoa, a mini Christmas tree and some Hallmark merchandise.




Guessing they weeded out all of the applicants that had easy access to rope and razor blades because there is no way they want the news running stories over how the 10th dream job winner offed herself by the 5th movie.

First step is to let them know how you feel via nice communication. Not screaming at the nice girl in the drive-thru like the lefties do.

Appreciate your perspective, but if there is no pushback, all corporations will end up being woke, which is just part of the push to make it effectively impossible to openly state your political views and continue to be a part of society.

The Left frequently reprints an cartoon by XKCD that states that while you have freedom of speech, you have to accept the consequences - in other words, the possible loss of your job, the possible destruction of your business, the possible loss of access to banking and financial services, et.al. It''s like saying that you have freedom of speech in East Germany, but you have to accept being arrested by the Stasi.

And we've only just started heading down this road - the University of California has started demanding loyalty oaths for new faculty members pledging their commitment to "diversity". Imagine having to sign one of these documents if you want to open a bank account - and that is definitely coming if the Left triumphs.

And without pushback, they will win.

346 But Chick Fil A did NOT choose to avoid politics. I agree that you shouldn't go through life trying to figure out who you do business with is left or right. In music and entertainment alone, most of on the left.

But Chick Fil A knew they were sticking it to their customer base, they knew this. If they don't even get the slightest backlash, even for a couple weeks, then they will be encouraged to please the potential customers who DO care about their politics. The Left is all politics all the time. And they have yet to love a corporation from woke to unwoke. It only goes one way.

Everyone goes their own way, that is my philosohpy and I think the first idea I pushed here. But their chicken sandwiches are not THAT good. I would suggest dropping them for a couple weeks and see how they respond. Heck, no one has mentioned this, but I would not be surprised if there is some employee turnover over this.

I don't think they are going to reverse course. They have their sights set on Europe for some reason. Pretty dumb in my opinion. They could have remained unwoke and had no issues in Latin America, China, the ME, etc. But they want that Europe is my guess. And they want that San Antonio airport.

Most people think that the tide didn't turn until the Battle of Stalingrad, and the Lend-Lease equipment was definitely flowing by then. In fact, that was a big factor in the Germans heading toward Stalingrad in the first place. Another was to cut off the Soviet oil supply.

At the time, the Germans still held all of Poland, all of Ukraine, the Baltics, Belarus, and were still camped right outside Leningrad.

377 Not aware that any of those leaders made such a comment about the American role in their victory, but would love to find out about them.


Timeline needs tweaking. In retrospect, the German defeats towards the end of '42 look pretty inevitable - bit off much more than they could chew with Case Blue in the south. But at the time, not many were breathing *that* easy in Moscow. Glanz probably is close with his take: after Stalingrad, it was clear Germany would not win in the east, and after Kursk, it was clear the Soviets would win on their terms.


And tomorrow, fittingly, is the 77th anniversary of the launch of Operation Uranus [annihilation of the 6th Army at Stalingrad].

I, for one, believe in putting my money where my mouth is. CFA traded on their conservative values and won a huge customer base, based on those.

I hope The Salvation Army gets swamped with donations like CFA got swamped with customers when WE came to THEIR rescue with the Buy-cott

497 By Stalingrad the Russians were sending in any old man, woman, or kid who could carry a gun.

Not true, actually - there were 170 million people in the USSR in 1937, so about 17 million males of prime military age. The Red Army + casualties at that time was a fraction of that, even discounting people in areas occupied by the Germans. The problem at Stalingrad, initially, was shortage of weapons.

The old men, women, and kids were engaged in military production and keeping a subsistence civilian economy going.

You know who generally makes the best Mexican food, hands down?



Mexicans.

Seriously, all the chains in the Puget Sound area were started by one Mexican family about 50 years ago, and after disagreements, that family broke up and now have maybe 4 multi-store businesses. And also a couple of single stores, started by members of the same family. One is my go-to, about 15 minutes from where I live.

Of course, now there are also some Mexican restaurants that have opened up in the last decade or so around here, and have some very imaginative, delicious Mexican food as well, albeit maybe a third more in cost.

But the key concept here is good Mexican food is made by good Mexican cooks.

And the Margaritas are pretty doggone good, too.

Which is the point.

I was talking about this with a judge in California years ago, and he said that it was theoretically possible that the underage person would have to appear in court dressed and made-up as they were at the time of the complaint, so the jury could make a determination. Not sure if this ever actually happened.

511 Frankly, I have no problem with most vegans. They will eventually either come to realize through reading or actual experience that being Vegan is detrimental to one's health and any others in their family that they force into being one. Thus they will either die (at one extreme) or become weak and ineffectual (at the other extreme) and to me that's all to the good because generally they also have opinions that are inimicable to mine and are a danger to the future of my country.

I through poor habits became a semi vegan and was brought to my senses by my experience. It was brought home even more clearly when I made myself spend the money to eat Beef more frequently and found the benefit to be astounding in its speed and positive result.

Let the vegans have their ill health and weakness. Just don't let them force it on anyone else.

518 I, for one, believe in putting my money where my
mouth is. CFA traded on their conservative values and won a huge
customer base, based on those. They blatantly betrayed their base by
ending donations to the SA and FCA, both very worthy organizations.
This move was made for the sole purpose of appeasing the left.
Therefore, I will not be spending money at CFA going forward.

Posted by: Ladyl at November 18, 2019 11:17 PM (TdMsT)


I never ate at CFA until this year. They sponsor a cruise night twice a month during the summer in south jersey, so I decided to finally blow off the usual local one and go to the CFA. I'm not a chicken person much, but that shit was really good. The staff was on the ball, no real slackers, mature like, and I was impressed. I went 2 more times. The place was packed, a real gold mine, and the cruise night they have was really good. The muscle car dudes are usually trump guys. I'm really curious what happens next season. This was a frigging bone head move.

577 Was just at the hospital Sunday to visit a friend, who was back in after extensive open heart surgery about six weeks ago.

He has had a problem with healing, and some uncertainty about bacterial infection. They sliced out some flesh and have a large bandage with a vacuum pump installed to pull fluids out.

After his surgery, he became a zealous 'Ornish Diet'
( https://tinyurl.com/v99jf2y )fan. The guy has been toting around a jar of fat-free salad dressing for his salads. I expressed grave concerns about the diet, particularly relative to protein, but, he is/was convinced.

So, now he's back in the hospital. I'm looking at what they are feeding him, and pick up a bottle of protein drink which they have provided. Reading the label, '26% Saturated Fat'.

I point this out. He's shocked. I am not. Need I point out that his primary dietary guide is the internet?

ride in them a couple of times a year, but never drives a one of them.

The French knew the Germans were likely to invade through the low countries. They had a treaty with Belgium which had French troops rushing north into pre-positioned static defenses in Belgium when it happened. Between France and Belgium, the plan went, the Germans could be held.

Then in 1938 (I think) the Belgians decided, very publicly, they didn't want the next Great War fought on their territory and told the French the deal was off. The French were desperately moving to fortify their border but they ran out of time. The Belgians really screwed them.

Speaking of radios, I opened up an old radio today. It is a Radiomobile (Smiths of England) model 22X. It was installed in this Panhard I'm working on, but obviously not a factory install. Damned thing is insanely heavy for a compact car radio. So I took out about 20 small screws to remove the cover, and discovered it's a tube radio, with a vibrator power supply. There's the weight: vibrator, vibrator transformer, and output transformer. Only three tubes, but they are all dual-function types.

But the doggone thing was packed full of fuzz. The rear end of the radio stuck into the cowl area of the car, which the silly Frenchmen insulated with big batts of yellow fiberglass. And the mice got into that, and built a big nest on top of the radio, and little bits of that insulation, plus mouse turds, filtered down into the radio through the perforated cover plate. It was about packed solid. And the mouse pee rusted the cover, and some of the innards, too.

The boat was towed to shore and drydocked in Portsmouth; on 15 November she was decommissioned. Less than a year later, on 15 May 1940, the boat was recommissioned as USS SAILFISH (her hull number remained the same). SQUALUS’s name did live on, however, despite the wartime commanding officer’s best efforts. He issued standing orders that the boat’s former name should not be spoken; any man who disobeyed would, he decreed, be marooned at the next port of call. The crew responded by referring to their boat as “SQUAILFISH.” The captain, now well and truly annoyed, threatened court martial for anyone heard using the term.

I suspect that the mower deck has three small blades, each about 15 inches long. So you have three (smaller) torque reactions, on 3 separate axes, so there is some cancellation going on. Plus the drag from the wheels.

A 4 banger Toyota Camry off the lot gets more HP than a "high output" V8 from the mid 70s to the mid 80s. That period was a nadir for the American car industry.

Even during the muscle car's glory years, the drum brakes, 2 ply tires and leaf spring suspension combined with 400 hp probably killed almost as many boomer boys as Vietnam. At least the VW Bus killed off a good number of the hippies.

Their website has the details. I am a big guy, and use the Blue one. I think it was white, red, green, blue, and red. It is the quantity of fill that corresponds to your size of shoulders and the position you usually sleep in.

710 Perspective.

I manage a small fleet of Shuttle vans and buses, which includes a trio of 2015 Ford Transit, mid-height, passenger fans.

With all seating rows in place, that's fourteen passengers plus the driver.

And a 12' enclosed Cargomaster trailer, to carry all of their considerable luggage to the cruise ship, of course.

Lot of weight there.

Ford 3.5 liter Twin Turbo Eco-Boos engine.

375 hp, 410 ft. lb. torque.

Fully laden with NFL type passengers, and luggage loaded to the roof in the trailer?

Yeah, merge into traffic wherever you want.

Houston Ship Channel Bridge? Galveston Causeway?

It'll only downshift if other traffic had you slowed down to far in the first place. But if you were already rolling at the posted limit, it'll just PULL up those grades, like they weren't even there.

Unladen, it's damn near sports car handling.

Full up? Uh, No... SLOW DOWN before that curve, m'kay?

The brakes absolutely kick ass for the most part. Stop n' go traffic, no problem.

But one OMG from 70 mph, and you'd best let 'em cool off a bit before you need to do that again.

Good decision making is how I evaluate our new drivers. And about 1/3 of the "trainees", I tell the boss not to hire.

She does not like my rate, but does not argue with my calls.

Because I put 'em in writing, and if anything bad were to happen with those drivers, my notes go into evidence.

Biggest thing I have to work with on new drivers, is treating that gas pedal with the respect it demands. Otherwise, it'll sneak up on 'em and overpower 'em.

Figuratively, AND literally.

Fortunately they do make some nice updates for them these days. I completely redid the entire under side of the car this past year. If you could unbolt it, it got changed. New upper control arms, I rebuilt the lowers and torque boxed them, C body tie rod ends with the 11/16 adjuster threads over the normal 9/16 B body threads. All Moog, every last frigging steering part and bushings. I did hemi springs in the rear with the hemi reinforcement plates on the spring perches, 1.03 torsion bars, KYB shocks and disk brakes. It drives like a dream, miles ahead of the 3 others I had years ago. Night and day. The ones I had years ago you had to point and hope the hell there were no curves. lol

717 The thing is, it never actually works out when they appease these people. "I didn't go to CFA because of their anti-LGBT policies! And now I... still don't go because I'm a vegan."


......

Aah. But see that's the thing. The goal of the hired guns that get stuck on these corporate boards never really is to appease the alleged offended. It's to destroy the soul of the business.

CFA has unrivaled growth inside their industry. No one could rationally view their success and say "we need a quantum cultural shift". Which means the real reason for the shift isn't for business reasons, it's because they want to gut the Christian out of the business.

Now they are just overpriced nuggets. Before they were overpriced nuggets you could support because of their core cultural standards.

720 Life in California:

So, some "youths" killed five people at a Halloween party at a rented BnB in the Bay Area.

Eighteen days later:

Contra Costa County prosecutors decided Monday against filing charges at this time against anyone in the Halloween shooting in Orinda that left five dead.

---

Five suspects were arrested Thursday after authorities served search warrants in San Mateo, Marin City, Vallejo and Antioch. Four people were arrested on suspicion of homicide and conspiracy and one was arrested on suspicion of being an accessory.

---

Prosecutors have 48 hours to decide whether to file charges and that time was up Monday evening. All five suspects will be released.

Amazing. Just amazing.

Before my mom passed a couple of weeks ago, her assisted living place had a lot of events, to entertain the residents, and something interesting to get visitors.

Each year, they did a big BBQ / feed, and many of their kids-grandkids attended. The Pierce County Model A club would show up each year, with maybe a dozen or so completely restored Model A's and Model T's.

It was quite entertaining, they gave rides if one wanted to take one. Being a big guy, it wasn't easy to even get inside. But they looked cool, and the owners were fun to talk with.

Meanwhile, it's been more than a month since an Antifa "activist" was hit by an SUV filled with people near the Antifa bar in Portland, allegedly after a drunken argument, as at least one of the activist's friends repeatedly fired a handgun into the SUV.

No arrests. No sign of the people in the SUV, who fled the scene.

One gets the distinct impression that the powers-that-be in Portland have decided that the facts of the homicide are sufficiently embarrassing that no investigation is warranted.

Posted by: Anna Puma at November 19, 2019 12:43 AM (bfAee)

It's old tech, dates back to early 30's, at least. Vacuum tubes want 100+ volts on their plates, if they are going to put out. How to get 200 volts from a 12 volt supply? We'll use a transformer! But transformers only transform AC. OK, we will make the current alternate, which is what the vibrator does. Vibrator is just a reed, weighted at the end, driven by an electro-mechanical "buzzer" arrangement. Reed also carries contacts that alternately feed current to either end of the center-tapped primary of the vibrator transformer, creating square-wave AC at about 400 Hz. Transformer boosts it up to 200-odd volts, it goes through a rectifier (selenium in this case) and filter, and is made available to the circuit.

Upped the standard 1600 Dual Port to a double carb, bag o' snakes, Bosch 009 distributor, FRAM intake'd power monster.

Must've made at least eighty, ninety horsepower, minimum!

And given the tech at the time, that ensured that I would easily "keep up with traffic" in any scenario short of the dragstrip.

Were I to win a substantial lottery even now, the first car I would commission anew, would be a full-on, to the max, Resto Mod of a '72 Super Beetle.

My car had the big 11" police drum brakes with the 3" wide brake shoe from the factory. It was all rebuilt new, drums, wheel cylinders, brake lines, all of it, and it stopped pretty damn good, but you were only panic stopping once, you could feel the fade gradually coming in with each press of the pedal after that. Its manual brakes, but still. The disks are so much more consistent on that car. Thats the only reason I upgraded.

Posted by: kbdabear at November 19, 2019 01:15 AM (qAR6u)

They weren't that slow in urban traffic; they were geared like a farm truck, with lots of low-end grunt for starting out with a heavy load. Zero to twenty miles an hour was on a par with many cars. I drove one for a few years.

789 All car radios used vibrators before the invention of the transistor.
Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at November 19, 2019 01:18 AM (aKsyK)

And thereby hangs a tale. In the early days of transistors, they had trouble making them amplify or oscillate reliably at radio frequencies, and the few that did were very expensive. And the tube manufacturers were not giving up without a fight. They introduced "space-charge" tubes that functioned just fine with only 12 volts on their plates. So, for a short span of time, you had "hybrid" car radios. No vibrator, no transformer, no rectifier tube, just 4 or 5 small-signal tubes, and one big power transistor for the audio output stage. These radios never were very good. The 12-volt tubes were not nearly as sensitive as their predecessors, and failed to bring in weak signals. Strong local stations were OK. And the germanium power transistors of the day were very picky about bias resistors and speaker impedance. Audio distortion was common.

This is true. Discs are much better for sustained/repeated high-effort braking.

I can get kits to put 4-wheel discs on any later-model Studebaker, but actually going with disc front/drum rear gets you most of the fade resistance for a lot less trouble and dollars. Maybe 4-wheel discs if also going for high-output engine, and chassis upgrades, too.

If your car has a vibrator, you're using the back seat WRONG.

When I was buying cars for restoration and resale (rich Amerika-stuff lovin' Germans) I saw one particularly interesting car.

1949 Cadillac. Pink, but faded. In place of a glove compartment, there was a pull-out record player. For like, records.

Being stupid for 3 seconds, I first wondered how you could listen to records while driving, because the needle would skip.

After 3 seconds...oh.

The back seat folded down. Made a nice bed.

A Cadillac made for the submarine races.

I grew up in Vancouver, B.C., and tug boats are ever-present. They don't push barges like they do on the rivers, they tow them (and log booms) on long cables. Many of the tug boats back in the day were powered by big 2-stroke Detroit Diesels, and they had a unique sound to them.

Doesn't mean they can't be used while stationary, though. Now if that '49 Caddie had been fitted with a record player when new, it would not have been a Goldmark rig, because that didn't come out until 1956. Some really clever custom shop could have mounted one of the little RCA 45 RPM changers in a car, I guess. But they'd have had to replace the AC motor with a DC motor with some sort of speed control.

Having spent the time frame from '99 to '06, living aboard my 30 ft. sloop, the period from '03 to '06 is key to this discussion.

That's when I had moved the boat from Kemah, TX, down to Galveston.

And my marina was but 1/2 mile from the Intercoastal Waterway.

Those barge & tow (pushboat) rigs put some serious sound, right into the water.

The Detroits would always catch my attention, having crewed so many hours aboard major yachts, powered by the same.

Cummins? Yeah, roll over and go back to sleep, thankful that I never had to turn a wrench on another one, evermore.

But once in the wee hours, I rose bolt-upright out of deep sleep.

The sound was unmistakable. Fairbanks-Morse 12 cyl, double action (two stroke) diesel.

Same as powered my Old Man's diesel electric boats in the late '60s, early '70s.

Don't know which towboat was powered by such, but the black gang on board of that one EARNED my respect, somewhere between two and four a.m on a cold winter's night.

809 Late to the party, but noticed the Y2K comment above. I always make it a point, having worked through it, to correct the false impression that's become conventional wisdom.

To wit, that it was just BS, turned out to be nothing, etc.

It did turn out be nothing, but that's because many thousands of people worked many hundreds of thousand of hours, just to get that result.

Pretty much all the horror scenarios that were described were real possibilities: power grids down, hospitals down, banking system down, etc.


Every piece of machinery or electronics that accepted as input, depended on, or output a date, and likewise every computer program, was a possible failure point. And every company in the country, or world, had to check every one of those things and then either fix or replace it if it was vulnerable.

And they did, and they did a damned good job of it.

823 Good Morning ONT Morons; today is Tuesday, November 19, 2019. On this day in 1863 Abraham Lincoln delivered the Gettysburg Address at the dedication ceremony for the military cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Here is the text of the speech:


Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.


Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

I don't know anything about this so-called bru-ha-ha with those people I have never heard of but I have read her book and used to follow her column assiduously. She has never been a racist and an anti-semite. She also never said "the japs deserved to place in camps".

She wrote a book called "In defense of Internment". If you bothered to read the books which she did a lot of research to write what she said was that those so-called camps were only started after numerous Japanese spies were caught on Pacific islands including HI reporting US ship movements.


The only Japanese who were placed in so-called camps were actual Japanese citizens who were here at the time. Most of the Americans of Japanese origins were placed in temporary housing camps away from the coasts with the freedom to come and go at will. The same thing was done with similar German people on the East Coast but nobody ever says a word about them.

" I mentioned in an earlier thread that I'm back in the hospital again. I called the ambulance early Sunday morning because I had severe breathing problems. It turned out hat I had pneumonia but have responded well to treatment and felt much better today.

855 And from Jim in response to ricks's hospitalization.

Reading upthread, looks like rickl is in hospital again. Jim at #799 has a request:
>>799 Hey Rickl?
Tell us what's on your Make a Wish list.

You never know, there might be a Lurker or three, or a Moron or Five, or an 'Ette or more...

Odds are even at least, that you'll get to punch a ticket or three on that list.

I'm going to sleep now, Horde.

Would one or some of you overnighters please make sure that this thought carries over to the EMT or J.J.'s post in the a.m.?

Don't want this to be just words.

Let's make it happen for Rickl, if however possible.

You IN, horde?

Please tell me you're in.

It is the Moron Way.

Same here, but I've heard it's expansion into Europe. Which is fine, but sadly

"The U.S. fast food chain said that as it expands, it will no longer donate to the Salvation Army, the Paul Anderson Youth Home, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, which opposes same-sex marriage."

you don't get do-overs in this. Courting customers and building an enormous chain because you push Christian values and then saying "oh, nevermind" isn't a way to endear yourself to lots of customers, and the gays only see it as a victory to continue your destruction until they can wear your skin.

There was a great comment at the link, though.

"Sad commentary on today's society when you get punished for donating to the Salvation Army."

Kroger is doing a special. If you spend $25, you can get a turkey for .37 cents/lb
So a 20 lb turkey would cost you $4.70.

904 Interesting developments in the Epstein murder, two prison guards are expected to be indicted this week on falsifying records, they allegedly declined a plea deal to spill the beans, probably a smart move by them lest they have a similar fate of the guy the helped kill.

Another thing I learned is that the noose/ligature/bedding that Epstein allegedly used to hang himself was never collected from the crime scene, never analyzed and was apparently thrown away.

Profit margins in Supermarkets are very low, among the lowest of any retail stores. But that is "overall" profit margins. They will mark some things up so they can mark other down. The average profit on items in a supermarket run between 1 and 3 percent. You have to shop wisely. Stay away from really pricey areas like supermarket delis'
