Saturday Morning Coffee Break

6620coffe.jpg

***

Mornin' Morons. Coffee time. Black and bitter like my soul.

The rules? Opine away or bloviate. Whatever trips your trigger. Just remember no running with sharp objects, don't pull the 'ettes hair and be nice to one another.

If you are in a metro area where the lawlessness is taking place. Be safe and keep your head on a swivel.

Have a great weekend!!

A Response from Behind the Lines

coffeecart.jpg

This morning's rant from my friend and colleague Krakatoa, though impassioned and frankly right on the money, struck a rather sour note with me:

...If you are unfortunate enough to be a conservative stuck in that mess, well, it's not like you didn't have enough warning and opportunity to relocate. So I feel for you, but I'm honestly not losing any sleep over you...

Passions these days naturally are running high. I get that and I am no exception. But how can I be blamed for my life situation, as well as that of a couple of the other cobs and commenters who live in Antifaria? It ignores reality. I can't just snap my fingers and, voila! Deep in the heart of Texas armed to the teeth and gainfully employed. I still have family ties, roots, work such as it is (mostly lacking) and other things - namely for those of you who don't know, a wife who is a liberal, and a university professor to boot. So all of that kind of ties my hands.

I mean honestly, if I get beaten to death for not bowing down to the terrorists if I am unlucky enough to run into them in broad daylight when I'm not cowering in my apartment by night praying they don't break in, you're not going to be losing sleep over me because it's my fault I live here?

CBD adds:

I hope you realize that it isn't as easy as a snap of the fingers and off we are to Idaho or Texas with good jobs and surrounded by family and friends.

Sure, I would love to move out of the NYC metro area.

What do you suggest my wife and I do with our aging parents, who need our help, uproot them from their family and friend networks, from the places they have lived for most of their lives?

Or from jobs many of us have taken entire careers to create, that are not easily moved to Red America?

There's a smugness among some in comfortably conservative areas that at times can be every bit as infuriating as the contempt inherent in people who talk about the "flyover states.."

As one of our commenters often says about the Seattle area...."I grew up here...I'm not leaving."

That's a fine attitude to have. As much as many of us would prefer to live in one of the sane parts of the country, maybe we should fight for what we have and not give in to the mob.

And that comment segues nicely into the photo at the top of this post, taken less than a half hour ago as I returned from my weekly jaunt to Ass-Whole Foods, on still mostly deserted streets that are now boarded up. Some of them are covered in hastily painted "Black Lives Matter," as if it were a desperate attempt to beg the Angel of Death to pass over them. As I approached the corner of Houston and Broadway, I saw what appeared as something almost miraculous - the Egyptian coffee cart guy back in his old spot. I shouted "brother am I happy to see you!"

And as I crossed the street I started crying. Because it was a sign of life, here in what was and still is my hometown. Which may not be for long even after all this passes. Maybe that's another reason why us idiots still stay in these places, despite every outrage and depredation hurled at us. In a way, when I saw that cart, I got a bit of an inkling of what French civilians must have felt when they saw the GIs coming in to liberate their towns and villages.

Just then, I realized that today is the 76th anniversary of D-Day. So, please, dear friends. Have a little bit of understanding of us who can't escape.

V for Victory.

UPDATE AND WARNING:

This post is a civil response to a friend and colleague who I care for dearly. It is a prime reason that Ace of Spades HQ is the best place on the internet.

Want to add your two cents? Fine. But personal attacks and vulgarity hurled at us will not be tolerated. First and only warning.

20 I am thoroughly able to separate my thoughts on the people that live in blue city/state hellholes. And that's exactly what they are: pure hellholes. I want those that voted for this sh*t to get exactly what they voted for. As we say: good and hard. But I feel deep empathy for others who are either stuck there due to family or job circumstances, or just feel the need to not forfeit the homes they've always known and loved. It's a tough, tough situation to be in. For decades, normal people (conservative types) have fled these places and escaped the misery that was coming and is now here. Maybe it's time to stop the running and start the changing. When do blue states ever flip to red? We sure know red states trend blue from locusts all the time. Never the other way around, with maybe the exception of Texas over the years. All this to say I feel deeply for all you stuck in these places. I live in a very conservative area, though our neighboring Greenville is already trending purple from the influx of the locusts. I wish things were different for all of you. For all of us.

23 I get frustrated that people are still stuck in CA, IL, etc. It is just not realistic to expect everyone to move, and it seems like it's impossible to get those places to even consider a return to sanity.
There are certainly higher walls to scale for some folks to uproot. I was a military kid, so moving is a talent of mine. My father is behind the lines to some extent, although at least in suburbia rather than on the absolute front lines.
There are so many boiled frogs that the rest of us don't want to watch them suffer. I pray for the cities in turmoil right now, and I offer safe haven to anyone who needs it, even my lib SIL who probably votes that way. What has to happen for people to say, "ENOUGH!"?

27 Nothing ever stays the same. Your surroundings are going to change. It's up to the individual whether the advantages of living in a certain place outweigh the risks.

I bailed on the state where I was born and spent fifty years of my life. It was as simple as "the time has come", though it took a long time to arrive at that point. With luck I will never have to go back there.

Yes, it's a shame. There are wonderful people back in Iowa. But the direction it (and much of the rest of the country) is heading left little choice. My heart goes out to those of you who are wrestling with this decision.

Some of my father's aunt and uncles could not leave their businesses and friends and leave Germany when Hitler rose to power. It was their home. They had lovely houses and thriving businesses. Surely this would pass.

We remember them on Yom Hashoah. As far as I know only one survived, she lived in Tel Aviv.

33 JJ quotes Krakatoa: "If you are unfortunate enough to be a conservative stuck in that mess, well, it's not like you didn't have enough warning and opportunity to relocate."

I've had warning and time to get out of Da Swamp (which was a horror show to live in even before the scam-demic and this BLM craziness). Just not the resources. Jobs were thin on the ground in any place I considered living during Obongo's reign of error. Things were coming back with Trump, and now the legs have been cut from beneath the economy. They'll grow back, but how fast?

I have no family, and I can't pick up and move across the country without a job of some kind waiting for me. Probably a lot of us are like that, and/or have ties where we live now.

499 She doesn't want any force and from what I'm hearing they are releasing the rioters as fast as they catch them. So what's the point? It won't stop until it is stopped and Jabba and Dykefoot refuse to put an end to it
Posted by: TheQuietMan
----------
The AMAZINGLY stupid part of this rioting and attempted Insurrection is that the Democrats had a model of how to solve this, and they could point to a Democrat Governor for the answer.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul were a complete total shitshow Wednesday Thursday and Friday. Finally Saturday morning Walz called up the entire Minnesota National Guard, all 13,000. By Sunday morning, they had their answer,
IT WORKED!!!!

After Sunday night, they had confirmed it. No dead protesters, no broken heads, no looting, almost no arson.

The protests went on, but they were PEACEFUL.

Cuomo, Newsom, Jabba, Evers, Northam all could have said I am going to call up our National Guard to stabilize our cities. They could have stopped billions of dollars in looting and arson. Like Minnesota, it would have STOPPED the violence.

Also, they would have had a great replacement for senile old Joe Biden. "Governor Tim Walz, the Democrat that stopped the violence tearing our cities apart." Democrat, teacher, veteran, from southern Minnesota Farm Country. Reminds everyone of the old Democrats like Hubert Humphrey, Walter Mondale, and George McGovern, but just as radical as Nancy and Barack.


Thank God the Democrats are fools.

36 Nice response, JJ!

My beloved state of Colorado was invaded. I don't like the idea of being chased out of it by asshoes who burned down their own homes. Grrr!

However, we did end up moving to an indigo blue state to be near family. Also because when my husband had cancer he asked that, should be beat the grim odds and survive, could we please move back to his beloved home state? I love my husband, I do enjoy this damn Lefty state despite its loony residents (and it helped settling far outside of the major cities), and we will make our stand here, I guess. *sigh*

The left is hoping those suffering will say "enough" by voting Trump out of office. Their message is "we will continue the pain until Orange Man gone."

It might work, if people don't understand what's going on here. The MSM is working overtime to make sure we don't.

I've often thought that too. I think a lot of this stuff does not get noticed by non-political people who are not confronted with it personally. As I type, it's a beautiful summer day, the guy next door is mowing his lawn, the neighbor down the street is having a garage sale. Could not be more ordinary and peaceful. You would never know there was civil unrest unless you tuned in to cable news, something fewer and fewer people are doing.

Posted by: grammie winger at June 06, 2020 09:16 AM (lwiT4)

40 I moved to a state when it was red - then over time, so many Massholes moved here that it became dark dark blue.

There was simply no way to overcome the inertia of numbers of crazy people.

The good news is that my family is all down south (albeit that's no longer safe either - NC) and my wife and I have been talking about moving to Texas to be closer to some friends. Unfortunately her situation with her Med School loans means that she has to work for her current employer for another 3 years.

After that we can re-evaluate. I'm guessing that it will depend heavily on whether Governor General Mills is re-elected or not. LePage says he's going to come back and run against her but - as much as I like Paul (I've ordered drinks from him up in Booth Bay) if the Republican party is to have any future in our state, it needs new blood.

And then the Army when I was older, moving always seemed normal to me. But I think I'm not the norm on this, I never had Roots to speak of.

46 Hey JJ; I get being rooted to a place. Especially Manhattan. N.Y. for all it's foibles is still an exciting, amazing city. What I don't get is the mixed marriage, though. I can't understand Conway/Conway or Matlin/Carville. My marriage, as imperfect as it is, would be unsustainable if she was a liberal. And, I'm perfectly happy to lay the blame entirely on liberals/progressives. As an institution they hate us. I have engaged w/a handful of honest liberals over my life, and they are few and far between. And, once I lay out my world view, the relationship changes. Always. And it's not because my affection wanes. They just can't abide us. I often wonder if it's b/c of self loathing, and the fact that deep down, if they were honest with themselves, they know that intellectually we're correct. But the fact "they" can't reconcile it with their bent emotions, keeps them locked in and charging ahead, drifting ever leftward.

50 Many of those crowing about Blue cities burning are retired and can afford to move to Bumblefuck Holler, Red State. If you are in your earning years and the job is centered in major commercial centers, you have to live where the work is. Hell, not everyone is suited to suburban or rural life. It's okay to like metropolitan living.

Just like I got tired of all the pings against alphabet agency employees. Why don't you brave principled men quit?! I worked through many administrations, some good, some not so good. But the target was active regardless of who occupied the White House, and the work had to be done by experienced operators at specific locations.

I have a co worker who grew up in Czech during Communism and said the place turned into the Wild West after the Soviet Union collapse. His first commercial diving job (that's what we do) was searching under bridges and docks for oil drum with bodies stuffed inside that the mafia had dumped.

He came to the US in the mid nineties, and finally saved up enough to buy a car. Because he was a fairly poor immigrant living in a fairly shit neighborhood, it got stolen. A cop showed up to take a statement, and my friend said he was absolutely terrified because Czech cops do not have customer service as their first priority.

The cop found his car... And gave it back to him without demanding payment, which absolutely blew his mind. I've talked to him during this unpleasantness and he basically always says "Americans have no fucking idea what bad police are."

61 re: D-Day commemoration:

One day prior to the Normandy landings occupied Rome was liberated by Allied troops. My dad was fortunate to have front row seats, and "buzzed" St. Peter's basilica while the Pope was speaking to the throngs.

June 5, 1944
Rome is ours. We have it surrounded and occupied. The natives are delirious with joy. What with flag waving and flower throwing and shouting and ringing it is a great show.

Our battery moved from Velletri to the fair grounds SW of Rome. As soon as we closed in the new area 'Ace' [Taylor] took me for a flight over Rome. The main streets were thronged with people. The entrance to Vatican City was so crowded with people that we couldn't see the ground. [Margin note: This was the Pope's address welcoming the Allies.

Only the railroad yards show any amount of bombing.

Our troops are moving well out with little opposition. All troops are advancing straight up the axis on rather narrow division fronts. The Air Corps is still raising Cain in the rear areas. Gerry seems very confused and disorganized.

There's a smugness among some in comfortably conservative areas that at times can be every bit as infuriating as the contempt inherent in people who talk about the "flyover states.."

Yes, very smug. Those most likely either born there, or if they were not, made a material choice, not ideological one, chasing a better opportunity, a nicer job, better house. It was not a sacrifice, rather an upgrade.

But I'd love to see their general populace, of all races, wake and see what giving unwavering support to one party has brought them.

If they could just be convinced to put their votes up for grabs they may just see some solutions to their concerns.

It was hard to leave, especially when after being at his job for over 20 years we were finally making solid progress on the pay scale. A few years ago God smiled on us and we were able to transfer to Texas.

However, TEXAS is going to be deep in the fight in a matter of years due to immigration both foreign and domestic!!! We feel like we too are living on borrowed time.

Then we bought our acreage, a lifelong dream, and Chicagoans fleeing the insanity turned our county purple.

I should pick up and leave the years and years of work we have put into this land, into this community?

No. Not happening.

I am blessed ot be involved ini a ministry/program to vets from all ages and branches, where we treat PSTD as a soul wound as much as a mental wound, and part of that concept blends Native American healing along with spirituality, Christianity, and a healing concept of listening. Through healing circles vets talk about their experiences, sometimes for the first time. We have a vet, a paratroooper who was one of the first wave to land at Normandy on D-Day. His opening up was an amazing moment to the other vets and Persons of String Heart (non-vets) that heard it. D-Day is a day I remember his stories with awe and respect.

A larger point from both is the necessity of governance to be both representative and small.

From what I've seen (and I haven't paid all that much attention to it), a lot of these blue cities have been one party for so long that there's no decent GOP party presence putting up a viable candidate, and someone like de Blasio gets elected because he's every so slightly less bad than the other choices that are a lesbian Marxist friend of CAIR and the local "The rent is too damn high" wacko who has run for office for the past 2 + decades.

144 On moving about for something better, it can work, but usually carries some cost.

My family is from the Thumb of Michigan. Most of us are scattered around the country now since the auto industry that used to support suppliers up that far has struggled for decades. I haven't lived there in over three decades, but my heart is still there. The weather, the soil, the place names, the local snacks, what you do for fun--wherever I live, everything is in comparison to the place I love. I miss it and miss dearly the family.

No regrets on leaving for what it will mean for my kids, but I would be lying if I said I didn't envy people who still live, work and try to make good in the place they are from.

150 I live in Saint Paul. Most people here are liberal but the city has a lot going for it and it's hard to move for a lot of reasons.

It also points to a problem with splitting the country up. The Twin Cities are liberal but Minnesota is split 50/50. How do you split up the state? Into a donut with the metro area inside and the rest of the state outside?

I think the only way through this is to wait until the Trump fever dies down and people in liberal areas see enough of the negative effects of radical policies. The media will work to focus on Trump but the normal people living in areas around by the riots will have a hard time overlooking the results of what the Democrats running the cities are doing.

Bill is right. It's very easily to reflexively vote for these abominable miscreants when things are not on fire. When you're fairly comfortable in day-to-day living activities. It's only when TSHTF that you're forced to open your eyes to what you've elected because you're personally feeling the ramifications. They're not just some hazy thing that has little effect on you. No, I don't expect there to be a great awakening because, frankly, progressives are very ignorant. But maybe enough will have no choice but to reevaluate how they vote because they've personally felt the pain they've brought upon themselves.

Same thing in the Milwaukee suburbs. Hell, you see the occasional Trump sign in yards around here and the owners aren't worried about getting their cars keyed or windows smashed as a result.

That's where I think the Dems are making a huge miscalculation. The burbs have a lot of squishy independents. The Dems had been moving those suburbs their way, due to the wine mom vote. But the Dems think those wine moms like the riots. No. They don't. Suburbanites fear disorder - and many of them still commute to work downtown. I think this will swing them back to red - and the Dems can't win if they lose rural AND suburban America.

208 Thank you for this post, J.J. From the suburbs of the Windy City I've watched in horror the past couple of weeks, not to mention in trepidation for a number of years, as the Democrat rot took over the important government elected offices of this state. Still, when one considers Chicago to have so recently been one of the great cities of the world --architecturally, academically, musically, culturally, food-wise and sports-wise it is very hard to give up. And it is hard to have it called a shit hole (often by people who admit they've never even been here). And it is unpleasant to be called stupid and worse because one only hopes to preserve for a while longer something four generations of your family loved and worked to build.

209 but in the 3rd world country where I grew up, asshoe cops were the majority. Thugs with badges, basically.

As a teenager and new driver i was hassled all of the time by the police and many were having fun pushing around young people because we don't lawyer up like adults.

One day, I'm at the gym, and the worst asshole of the police force (he had a nickname that most of us guys at school knew - he was an equal opportunity asshole) was struggling under a significant weight on the bench and might not be able to rerack.

I could either ignore him or push the weight down and have it drop on him. Instead, I go over put my hands just a inch below the bar indicating that I can help, then start yelling encouragement to push it up on his own.

He eventually does. Then we start talking like the gym rats we were. He never recognized me as someone he hassled. We spot each other on sets and talk trash and I bitch about some rotten cop that hassled me - he agreed that what the cop did was over the line, and then I added "it was you".

Shook hands, both grinned, did a few more sets, saw each other occasionally at the gym for some time until I moved on.

Sometimes we need to find common ground and find mutual human respect there.

I'm pretty sure that sort of resolution isn't part of the BLM curricula.

There's certainly a disconnect between those of us in blue areas and others who are in the reddest areas.

We are all very Myopic, to a fault.
I think Charles Mackay wrote in Extraordinary Popular Delusions... that the man who just ate a full meal goes to bed thinking everyone else in the world has a full belly like himself.

People from the reddest areas with small populations here are certain that Trump is gonna win in a landslide. And they tell us no one is wearing masks, and no one would put up with that anitfa shit or else the shooting would start, etc. It's just not so in the blue areas, which are far, far more densely populated where we see a better mix of people's reactions to politics.

If I have a point, and I'm not sure I do because I'm senile, anecdotes aren't worth much, really, is my point.

222 As a long time Prager listener he often tell about how virtuality the entire world's police are corrupted except here. Anywhere in the planet you can be stopped for a traffic supposed violation just for a cash handout. Or a custom violation and have to handover a electronic device.
========================
My view on Milwaukee is this: it's the police union who should be held accountable here. The neck-kneeler had 18 complaints against him, and those are just the people who sacked up and actually went through the process. Public sector employee unions are ridiculous on the face of it; it's ALREADY almost impossible to terminate a government employee.
And, keep in mind it is these same unions who have absolutely boned states like IL, NY, NJ, CA and others. The unfunded pension liabilities they have pried out of the hides of tax payers are appalling. They will be the death of us.

230 Amen JJ.

First, I have never retreated from anywhere in my life and I'm not about to start now. What many don't realize is a fair degree of The geographic area of NY outside the metro area is Republican. Look at the last state electoral map for one indicative. Second people have reasons they can't simply pick up and move. Albeit those reasons are steadily decreasing as the future here really gets bleaker.

I'll make one other point. If y'all think you're going to avoid this, think again. Take a look at your new neighbors from NY and NJ. Many are the people I was happy to see go, and they haven't changed at all. They are determined to continue voting Democrat like it's a team sport without any forethought about the impact to YOUR great communities.

One of our main requirements was to make sure if we move, we don't move into a community that's full of people we left to get away from. I'll tell you that's becoming a lot harder. Especially if you target an area with decent infrastructure (like natural gas, city sewers access to decent hospitals, etc. ). These liberals are on the move and infecting your communities the same way.

Anyway, we're all fighting the same fight. It just may take a little more time to get to you. The answer is for all of us who are like minded Americans believing in our country and constitution to continue working together.

Yeah, but where I live, in a densely populated area, there was indeed a meat shortage, and limits put on how much we can buy, while making us wear masks in the stores!

242 150 I live in Saint Paul. Most people here are liberal but the city has a lot going for it and it's hard to move for a lot of reasons.

It also points to a problem with splitting the country up. The Twin Cities are liberal but Minnesota is split 50/50. How do you split up the state? Into a donut with the metro area inside and the rest of the state outside?

I think the only way through this is to wait until the Trump fever dies down and people in liberal areas see enough of the negative effects of radical policies. The media will work to focus on Trump but the normal people living in areas around by the riots will have a hard time overlooking the results of what the Democrats running the cities are doing.

Didn't stop the Democrats from calling him Bushhitler and a chimp. For eight long years he was the end of the civilized world, now the respected elder statesman.

--- Romney was a fundamentally decent guy, that in 2012 was Hitler, a cancer causing, murdering, dog abuser.

----By 2033, Democrats will be telling us how populist Donald Trump was much less divisive than the current Republican.

I could say a lot more, but I won't. I'm disappointed and angry enough. I'll just add that it doesn't seem like his (presumably) red state is a picnic either. If he has that much loathing and contempt for the police there, why not take his own advice and just move? Not so easy, is it?

I didn't see that, but there sure is like the Taliban and ISIS in the way our monuments are being attacked, eh?

Every monument in the Boston Common public garden was vandalized, including the monument to Shaw's 54th Regiment (the one in the movie "Glory"). I see the ISIS/Taliban destruction approach as a way of not just destroying their enemy, but their ancestors (by erasing all traces of them). This really is an attack on America, our history and ancestors; this is an attempted revolution.

I have a co worker who grew up in Czech during Communism and said the place turned into the Wild West after the Soviet Union collapse. His first commercial diving job (that's what we do) was searching under bridges and docks for oil drum with bodies stuffed inside that the mafia had dumped.

He came to the US in the mid nineties, and finally saved up enough to buy a car. Because he was a fairly poor immigrant living in a fairly shit neighborhood, it got stolen. A cop showed up to take a statement, and my friend said he was absolutely terrified because Czech cops do not have customer service as their first priority.

The cop found his car... And gave it back to him without demanding payment, which absolutely blew his mind. I've talked to him during this unpleasantness and he basically always says "Americans have no fucking idea what bad police are."

True. And at the moment there is a lot of noise from the media, lies, and incitement. And the silent majority..is silent. Difficult to gage what really is going on. I think the market is a good indicator. It was stagnant in the BO years. Through the roof now. What to make of it ?

284 What triggered my escape from Houston was the reality that things could only get worse. And more expensive. Four mayors ago Houston bought the votes of public employees by offerring lavish pensions. They have underfunded those promises beginning the first year.

18 years later the current mayor, who as a state legislator baked control of the pensions into the states oversight, put up a $1billion bond vote to shore up 6% of the accrued debt. There was no discussion, no reform, just vote or die basically. It passed with less than a 2% margin as is typical in Houston on controversial issues.

The Detroit model is now the Houston model. And with the money Beto brought to Texas it will be hard to unbake that cake. Being a few years away from retirement, I got out while the gettin' was good.

Of the six kids of our family, I was the last to leave. It was a good town to grow up in and I have a lot of fond memories and friends there.

289 Almost moved to a major American city last year. Had lived in a major American city in my 20s/30s and recall it very fondly. Exhilirating to be there young, single, with just enough money in my pocket. But later in life, with a variety of responsibilities I didn't have then, moving into the city proper just did not seem responsible. A couple of really great opportunities were missed, but overall it was the better choice to stay out. That's a standard narrative I think, but raising a family, and getting older, in a major American city is a very stressful endeavor. And it's going to get worse. Best of luck to those who stay.

290 So, whither from here? What are the Left's goals? What do they really want? I don't think they know either. But me and the missus are here in deep conversation about all of this, and I came to this realization: That by being fairly normal and non-threatening, I've conditioned the cops to not assume that I should be shot, choked, beaten. By not showing up at violent protests, I've conditioned the cops to not shove me violently to the sidewalk. By driving responsibly, I've conditioned the cops to not assume I should be pulled over and harrassed (got pulled over twice in the space of 20 minutes for a burned out tail light in Taylor, TX by cops looking for an easy drug bust. Both stops were actually pretty scary; cops approached on the passenger side, weapons out. Not a particular fan of cops.)

But, I have conditioned the cops to not assume that I'm not a threat and are therefore a whole lot less likely to kill me.

My fault for living among white trash, you see. Not that I could afford anything but a one- bedroom, year-lease box apartment in the suburbs.

When my aunt visited and found out how much my mortgage is, she told told my parents, "She could have gotten a lot more for her money up north." Except there were few jobs up north. And when she looked up rents in my area, she realized what a deal it was.

301 Krak, I understand that your rant comes from the best place and the anger that you feel is near red line levels. So is everyone elses. We, of the Red persuasion, are too busy being fathers, business owners, Mothers, Entrepreneurs, civic leaders, church leaders, farmers and otherwise positive and productive lives, or we are desperately working towards that. We consider G-d as the Sovereign is some way.. just as the Constitution says.. even if we are atheist, we believe that WE are the owners of US.
I cannot now talk to a liberal about politics. We have no language that conveys real ideas with each other. Our world paradigm is too far apart. What is their final want? what is their final political destination? They can't express it without subjugating my personal sovereignty. I want to fulfill my destiny, I want to follow what God has for me in this life, and after. I want the constitution followed, as it is THE social compact for this nation. I want to be left alone. What do they want? I don't know, they can't tell me.. without telling me I am evil or somehow unhinged for being upset by their behavior.

There is no solution, there is no negotiation, there is no option but national divorce or total defeat. It remains to be seen who gets the house and kids..

They chase you around and lecture, hector and bully, even sending in the goon squad to rural Washington towns (where they met the armed populous and nothing happened hence no MSM reporting and twitter rejoicing). Truth is we are all running out of places to move. These riots showed everyone that. Truth is many of us live in deep red with blue major cities and seasonally purple resort areas.

333 But isn't this the direction we are going if the police departments become heavily politicized after driving out the good, professional cops?

Nothing is inevitable. But the pendulum has swung so far in the direction of left-leaning public sector unions that I sometimes despair. But then I see hopeful signs that we might not have completely lost our bearings. The 7-0 slap down of the Michigan Gestapo by the state supreme court, for example.

I'm perfectly willing to talk sane policy options on the police front. What I am not going to do is cede one inch to those that would blithely burn the country down and then five seconds later look around for someone to blame when they can't get their organic latte sustainably sourced from a small farm in Cameroon. Exhibit A: "Let's just do away with the police."

Sefton, I grieve for all of our great cities. The damage done for what I can only term privileged, insincere nihilism was avoidable. The coming reckoning in whatever form it takes is not. The time for choosing is here. Do we (the big we) still believe in America as a concept?

Posted by: somebodies advocate at June 06, 2020 09:42 AM (/LQkF)


there is a false dichotomy (two position argument) that either the state must be in place to make sure everyone does what it is supposed to do to maintain a society, or that society will fail because individuals are jealous, unthinking, uncaring and selfish.
Calling individuals who do not want onerous rules are denigrated as "rugged individuals" implying they probably will suffer infected teeth and burst appendixes and children with worms as they watch their neighbors perish without help because they are not strong enough is a very old meme, stretching back to the 1890's and the initial phase of the progressive movement.

I think this is a scare tactic to force people into obeying out of fear of chaos and boogeymen.

Societies are people working together, and oddly enough, this cooperation happens in spite of conscious organization, not because of it. People organize spontaneously, (and tend to top out informal organizations at about 100 individuals -- beyond that specific organization is required to make sure everyone is on the same page). Such "rules" tend to evolve spontaneously as well, and imposed solutions or rules tend to not work because they cannot reflect the needs of the society.

The thing to remember, as you mock people who want to keep their own independence, that people join societies voluntarily to gain a benefit, and in doing so surrender a part of their freedoms. This by the way is also what happens when you marry, you have kids, you start a job, you get a cat, you plant a garden or drive a car; every agreement and obligation you enter in to requires you to surrender or forego a bit of your autonomy and freedom.
NO ONE surrenders more freedom that they can get away with for the benefit they expect to receive. If the conditions are too onerous, we walk away. If the cost is too high, the margin between what we gain and what we pay is seen as to small or worse, negative between cost and benefits, we walk away.

The progressive and socialist societies, like our government for example, is in a long path of giving its members lots of reasons for surrendering rights and independence and trade it for dependence and promised benefits. The ratchet is supposed to only run one way, and the penalties and exclusions are engineered to become greater and the disabilities become greater for noncompliance with the government and societies' demands.
We are being herded into a tighter regime of compliance, but not for our own benefit (freedom itself is a benefit as is voluntary engagement) but because, and I quote, "it makes things work better this way under a centralized system"

I let you consider centralized and planned economies and how well they have worked in the past, and the famines and killing fields they have required, and ask if that has any reflection on a planned society as well.

Bless him for that. Will it be easy to move a 95 year old woman, no, but I will make it happen. It's a 3 day trip by car and I'll rent an RV if I have to to get her to our new home.

Neither my profession nor my place of residence is perfectly flexible and it's not a simple matter for me to just move or change jobs or whatever and I wouldn't presume that it is a simple matter for most people. I have a friend for whom it would be pretty easy to pull up stakes and go anywhere he felt like because that's how he has arranged his life, but he is just one person out of the dozens that I know.

EMT 6/6/20: A Small Rant edition

Look, I'm not even going to pretend:

I am enjoying the hell out of all this blue on blue shitstorm. This is a fiasco entirely of their own making, and it couldn't happen to a finer collection of race-baiters, intersectional virtue-signallers and tin-pot despots than you could ever imagine.

Fuck them and their cities.

If you are unfortunate enough to be a conservative stuck in that mess, well, it's not like you didn't have enough warning and opportunity to relocate. So I feel for you, but I'm honestly not losing any sleep over you.

And if you are a cop with your hands tied or even thrown under the BLM bus by the liberal overlords whose campaigns you funded with all your union dues, fuck you too. You LEOs bear a big part of the blame. You could have chosen against playing GI Joe and instead kept being community members. But no, that wasn't cool enough for you was it. No, you had to gear up and commence to no-knocking and killing dogs and killing actual innocent people, and especially and ESPECIALLY: circling the wagons for the very worst of you.

To all the apologists: Whatevs. You've lived a charmed life untouched by the asshole cop with a chip on his shoulder completely out of proportion to his skill, intelligence, experience or moral rectitude.

Let me share a snapshot of me and my experiences.

I've never committed nor been charged with a crime, but I've had more bad experiences with cops than good, across several states & communities, from the county Sherriff's deputy up to the State Police.

My first speeding ticket ever came a week after getting my DL, and it was for going 5 mph over down a 6% grade.

My second speeding ticket a year later was from a cop who closed on me like a bat out of hell on a moonless night, tailgated me for 5 miles with his high-beams on, refused to pass when I slowed down through two passing zones, then lit up the blues when I tried to put some distance between us. His exact words: "I gave you enough rope to hang yourself har har."

I've had my car broken into by the cops for being parked in an ungated municipal parking lot 30 minutes past close. I've had a sidearm drawn on me for expired tags by 3 days, my hands on the wheel and before a single word was exchanged. I've had a cop park across 3 parking spaces so close to my business entrance my employees couldn't unload stock for 20 minutes, and then try to intimidate me when I politely asked him to move.

Just last year I was robbed of several tens of thousands of dollars and caught the perps dead to rights on film along with 2 eyewitnesses on the scene, and I had to drag the local P.D. kicking and fucking screaming to an arrest.

I was literally told "I just don't know if there is enough evidence there to make it stick." I had to go up 4 levels of the chain of command over 2 and a half months for the "detective" to interview the witnesses; he lied about calling and leaving multiple messages for them. He left only one message and the call was returned within 5 minutes, and he refused to answer his phone and lied nonstop about not receiving any voice mails from the witness or from me. And lied, finally, when he assured me he would let me know when the perps were released on bail.

Don't get me wrong. I've had some good experiences. But for an average looking white feller that doesn't draw attention, that isn't an asshole (in public), who is always respectful to any officer, whose last speeding ticket was decades ago, that doesn't break laws and that doesn't even have any friends with rap sheets... you would think he would be able to easily say he's had good experiences with Johnny Law on balance, rather it being so decidedly the reverse.

We created and gave our justice system the authority to prosecute crimes. We did this because we rightly determined that an impartial arbiter was a more likely to provide a fair outcome than finding a rope and a tree. Make no mistake: this is at its core a social contract, and if the justice system willfully reneges on their end of the bargain, the rope and the tree comes back into play.

So seriously: Get Right, or get the fuck bent. And until you decide, you can go ahead and cry me a fucking river. Maybe then you can at least catch yourselves a nicely up-armored boat out of whatever cesspool you've helped pollute.

And finally: You'll excuse me if I enjoy just a bit of schadenfreude that you don't feel like you are getting the respect and support you think you are due. For what it's worth: we the public in no small part and across ideological lines feel pretty much the same way.

As the state views the people so to shall their enforcers.

We went to the cemetery yesterday to get flowers on my mom and dad's grave. As we drove in there was a sign that said something about no more than 10 people at a gravesite.

Meanwhile, 5 miles away there was a protest going on with a couple of hundred (supposedly) people that were standing shoulder to shoulder, kneeling on the intersection, laying on the intersection

18 I am up at the krak of dawn and boy am I thankful!
Because now I can calm my worries about just what the CEO of Dollar Shave Club thinks about racism...

"centuries of injustice..." (!!!)

There's been no shortage of voices in the chorus. After a week of important and raw conversations and reflection here at DSC, we want to add ours.

First, we unequivocally, loudly and vehemently condemn all forms of racist thought and action, from the deliberate and reprehensible to the unconscious but insidious. To us, there is no distinction.

Second, we are horrified and enraged by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery as well as by the race-driven deaths of countless other black men & women in the United States. And while we are heartened by the scenes of people voicing protest and by the flood of public messages from both individuals and organizations we are equally disheartened that it takes a string of tragedies, on the heels of centuries of injustice, to spur appropriate action on racism in America. We believe what matters is what we do when events like these are not front and center.

Third, we recognize that our record is not perfect. We recognize that choices we make every day in our operations - where and with whom we choose to advertise, who we choose as suppliers or vendors, among others - matter. They are each an opportunity to demonstrate our values, and we haven't always gotten it right. That changes now.

DSC understands its responsibility to take action, and we will be part of the change. The everyday change. The change that no doubt will take time, but that will begin immediately and continue relentlessly.

Here's where we're starting:

--- We will be conducting an audit of our relationships with suppliers, vendors and media & advertising partners to ensure that we are not doing business with anyone who falls on the wrong side of this issue.

--- We believe in a diverse workforce and will ensure we are all equipped with appropriate strategies to combat racism of any kind in our workplace and beyond. These have always been core values, but we will redouble our efforts - from hiring practices to team training and education to pay equality.

--- Action matters and conversation matters, but financial support matters too. Alongside each of our Unilever sister brands, DSC will contribute $100,000 to Black Lives Matter. Additionally, for every dollar that our employees collectively donate to this cause, DSC's leadership team will personally match those dollars, up to $25,000.

Until then, we stand in solidarity with those impacted by systemic racism and violence, and those fighting against it. We hear you, we see you, we are with you.

Michael Dubin, CEO


Annnd, bye-bye, Dollar Shave Club. Those who support Black Lives Matter shall not be getting my business.

20 I think thats the most I ever saw Krak write. I was once held up at shot gun point by a landlord and his friend, they chased us out and took everything of value for back rent. We tried to pay the rent but couldn't find them, and when we called the cops they were of no help. Because we were stinking hippys. Had to hire a lawyer and pay him and the back rent to get my stuff back. I decided that at 18 I was on a bad path in life, cut all my hair off and joined the Army and never looked back.

36 Because of a family member's situation we had numerous encounters with State Police. We lived in a town that didn't fund its own force. They were decent in the 1980s but starting around the late 1990s a shift in their attitude and comportment occurred. I remember one guy, he was an angel.

42 Too many many rules, laws, and regulations. Every day the average person can break several laws not really understanding how that happened. The beloved illegal alien breaks hundreds of laws over the course of their invasion and are praised as model citizen. In many poor communities 911 is on speed dial, many times to settle simple family matters (someone ate all my chicken) or act as parents for children that literally are un-parented.

Getting rid of the police that sit under overpasses to write tickets, setup to catch 5 miles over in a school zone, and kick in door to catch someone smoking a joint would make cities a better and safer place assuming the those police are redirected to find and arrest criminals. (Good luck getting the black robbed pussies to do something with them)

When I've gone to Confession, I have never been listened to with anything but mercy for my remorse. And I know that when the priest says, "Deinde, ego te absolvo a peccatis tuis in nomine Patris, et Filii, + et Spiritus Sancti" I am totally cleansed of the stain of sin on my soul.

None of that applies in the Church of the Left. You're never absolved. You'll always be guilty. Because of circumstances over which you have no say (your ethnicity, the actions of others with your ethnicity) you are eternally damned. You may grovel but even living blamelessly afterwards is no defense.

No thank you. I will never bend my knee before that altar.

62 I've always been amazed that cops (or maybe courts) seemed to think "I was afraid for my life" to be an excuse for killing completely innocent civilians, like that guy that got shot a few years ago while trying to buy an air rifle at Walmart. (That one was helped along by a meddling, unhinged citizen who called it in, but still...). I'm sorry, but if an innocent person is dead, I don't really care how you felt about it beforehand.

Cops want to be honored. That's fine. How you earn that honor is to shoulder the risk of presumption of innocence - to risk not going home, so that citizens will. It's not for everyone, but that's how you actually earn the honor.

Mostly I blame the criminalization of everything though. Politicians always seem to forget that every enforcement action has the potential to escalate to the use of deadly force, or killing someone by accident with rough handling that is usually nonlethal (I'm thinking of Eric Gardner). If it's not worthwhile for people to die for your law, you shouldn't make the law, because that's what happens when actual enforcement happens, even if everyone involved has innocent motives.

Posted by: Bruce at June 06, 2020 06:43 AM

I don't get the lockdown orders in IL. The ones in WI, MI and PA make sense. Because those are messages to the citizens of those states of "You better vote out OrangeManBad in November or we will continue to make your lives miserable".

But IL is guaranteed to vote Democrat. So makes no sense to have such a ridiculous lockdown, except other than to be on a power trip. Probably knows the IL voters' history with voting Democrat and realizes that he can do whatever he wants for as long as he wants and will face zero consequences from voters.

119 I need a cigarette after reading that rant.

Ahh. *blows smoke ring*

Looks like we're about to have that 'national conversation' so frequently bandied about, but never executed on this topic.

Incidentally, the militarization of the police began in earnest around 1981, when Congress passed the Military Cooperation with Law Enforcement Act, giving police access to military intelligence, infrastructure, and weaponry in the fight against drugs. Ronald Reagan declared The War On Drugs, drugs being a threat to national security.

In 1980, there were 3,000 SWAT raids in the US. By 2015, that number had increased to 80,000. No-knock raids also increased by leaps and bounds.

Looks like that is another War we lost.

I ask why and he says I hadn't allowed enough space, I say oh really, then he wants to get chatty, asking me shit like where I'm going, what's on board. I say tools and going to see Mom and let's finish up here, you want to show me the movie of me moving right too soon?

So far it is.

The city of Charleston proper, on the peninsula is under curfew each night of this weekend for protests.

But even that is taking on a more peaceful trend.


And I think nationally, folk are understanding that the left has tried to make 'protest' and riot' into synonyms, which of course they are not.

And the more peaceful protests there are, the more it forces people to realize that 'protests' do not mean murdering folk, and destroying their businesses in response to an injustice, real or perceived.

151 Had a conversation with a squirelly guy yesterday. Furniture maker and he does beautiful work. But keep in mind squirelly. His employer enticed him to move here from another state. He said he had to since that state was so violent and he lived close to the KKK. Lynching tree behind his house, didn't ask current or historically used for that purpose. Asked him where and I named where I thought he moved from since I'm native to that state. He wouldn't answer.
It's pretty common knowledge that the KKK has fallen on hard times, approx. 3000 nationwide and the chapters come and go quickly. And lynchings are a thing of the past although some deaths without a rope involved are probably counted as a lynching, say being dragged behind a truck.
My point, there's a whole lot of disinformation spread and believed in this country. It's lies but believed and those beliefs lead to beating and death for those that do not believe. Obligatory rant inserted: and the msm promotes this crap nonstop.

Lynching is an extrajudicial murder/execution of an individual, not limited to death by hanging.

So like when a retired black Police Officer is gunned down by rioters in front of his own business for the crime of stopping protesters from destroying his business.....

Discover the Networks: https://bit.ly/3eZNJqn

This should probably be sent in reply to every business e-mail to its customers pledging their support for Black Lives Matter. Need to show them exactly what they are supporting and we are ending our business with their companies over that support.

Founded by Marxist revolutionaries in 2013, Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a movement that depicts the United States as a nation awash in racism, sexism, and homophobia. Demonstrators at BLM events have been known to:

--- smear white police as trigger-happy bigots who are intent upon killing innocent, unarmed black males;
--- taunt, and direct obscenities at, uniformed police officers who are on duty;
--- throw rocks at police and threaten to kill them;
--- and celebrate in the streets when a police officer is killed.

Some examples of BLM's racist and incendiary rhetoric:

--- At a December 2014 BLM rally in New York City, marchers chanted in unison: "What do we want?
Dead cops. When do we want it? Now."
--- At a BLM march in August 2015, protesters chanted: "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon." ("Pigs" was a reference to police officers, and "blanket" was a reference to body bags.)
--- On a BLM-affiliated radio program the following month, the hosts laughed at the recent assassination of a white Texas deputy; boasted that blacks were like lions who could prevail in a "race war" against whites; happily predicted that "we will witness more executions and killing of white people and cops than we ever have before"; and declared that "It's open season on killing white people and crackas."
--- In November 2015, a group of approximately 150 BLM protesters shouting "Black Lives Matter," stormed Dartmouth University's library, screaming, "Fu** you, you filthy white fu**s!," "Fu** you and your comfort!," and "Fu** you, you racist sh**!"
--- In July 2016, a BLM activist speaking to a CNN reporter shouted: "The less white babies on this planet, the less of you [white adults] we got! I hope they kill all the white babies! Kill 'em all right now! Kill 'em! Kill your grandkids! Kill yourself! Coffin, bitch! Go lay in a coffin! Kill yourself!"
--- At all BLM events, demonstrators invoke the words that the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, convicted cop-killer, and longtime fugitive Assata Shakur once wrote in a letter titled "To My People": "It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains." (The fourth line was drawn from the Communist Manifesto of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.) In Shakur's original letter, she described herself as a "Black revolutionary" who had "declared war on the rich who prosper on our poverty, the politicians who lie to us with smiling faces, and all the mindless, heart-less robots [police] who protect them and their property."

Been buying on line from them for 4 years now. Based in Los Angeles.

Great choices, great prices. Low price 6 blade , really low price 3 blade, and the handle fits any of their blades. And the blades last.

They're a Korean company.

Only political Koreans I'm aware of are of the Rooftop variety.

171 I've lived in good neighborhoods and bad neighborhoods. About 10 years ago I lived in a bad neighborhood. It wasn't like the ghetto, but there was a lot of drugs and lawlessness, a neighbor of mine had a bullet put through his son's window because a g********* thought it was a rival drug dealer's house. My neighbors and I constantly call the police about the real drug dealer in the neighborhood, and they did nothing about it. Eventually we stopped trying, and I grew used to watching drug dealers sell out of their car while I was walking my dog.

like I said, I don't want to oversell how bad of a neighborhood it was, but it wasn't great. The point I wanted to make is every experience I had with a cop in that neighborhood was bad. At one time, there was an accident in an intersection. I followed a string of cars along into a drugstore parking lot to get around it. A cop turned on his lights and pulled me over and told me I couldn't cut through private property to avoid a red light. I asked him what I should do instead, and he just repeated his statement. I should also mention he said so in an extremely aggressive and hostile manner. There are other experiences I had as well, most of which had to do with a cop looking like he was going to pull a gun on me at any time. I should mention that I'm a middle-aged white dude who is about his harmless as you can imagine. What the cop was threatened by I have no idea, but he certainly seemed threatened.

So about seven or eight years ago I moved to a different neighborhood. This one is what you would describe as an upper middle class. if anyone is familiar with Philadelphia, it's on the main line. At any rate, my first experience was a cop there is when I nervously asked one the directions to a park I was trying to find. Cop couldn't have been nicer or more helpful, even offered to drive to the place so I could find it. All my experiences with the police in this neighborhood have been positive, every single one.

So when I read about how black men and women think that the cops are out to get them, I reflect upon this. How much worse would my experience have been if I lived in an even poorer neighborhood? How much better if I lived in even more affluent one? It seems clear to me based on my limited experience that police officers are nice to you if you're rich and hostile towards you if you're poor, at least if you live in a rich neighborhood or a poor neighborhood.

I'm sure there are reasons for this. I have known a number of cops in my day, and all it takes is a few stories of a buddy or colleague of theirs getting ambushed during a routine traffic stop for them to get extremely suspicious and paranoid while going about their everyday jobs. And that sort of thing is far more likely to happen where people have guns and drugs and arrest warrants then upper management jobs.

My point, I don't consider this a race problem. I think that the best solution to the so-called race problem is improving neighborhoods and installing upper middle-class values into those who live in them. Whole families, education, investing in the next generation at the expense of your own, these are all ideas which have been proven to work in America over and over and over again. If you can improve neighborhoods, police work becomes easier and tensions between police and communities lesson.

173 oh went back and got it back:

mornin yall. My business was located right next door to a county Sheriff's precinct office for about 5 years. Oh the stories I could tell of people coming and going there. Sometimes people would come in asking if the office was open because no one was there and then would tell me their stories of woe involving the Sheriff's department. One thing that really pissed people off is they could not file a report there, they had to go downtown, so you would see people walking and driving away with a pissed off look on their face all the time. I always wondered how many just said fuckit and never went downtown.

The officers I encountered there were typically overweight, buzz cut, and dumb as a rock. I went over there one Monday and asked the main guy there how many people were arrested on Sunday in the illegal "parade' of 100s of local denizens on motorcycles, dirt bikes, atvs , and cars that went right by the front door and thru the neighborhoods and he told me he knew nothing about it, but would look into it and get back to me. That never happened, just like when my MIL's house was ransacked when she was in the hospital, and when all the wiring was stripped from the new house she was building. I've never had any satisfaction in any dealings with the cops.

Local criminals are pampered though, and are usually back on the streets in no time, only to commit more crimes. It's pretty hopeless.

I was stopped by a big fat county cop for passing a car in a passing zone and ticketed. I was so pissed I went to court and when I got up to the judge, the judge said "I don't remember a passing zone there" and looked at the cop and smiled. I had to pay the fine, and on the way home went the same route and again observed the broken line in the middle of the road where I was previously stopped. I vowed then that if I ever saw one of those guys in trouble I would just keep on going. BTW that judge is now gone because of a corruption charge, but as far as I know he suffered no other consequences. Typical.

177 At all BLM events, demonstrators invoke the words that the Marxist revolutionary, former Black Panther, convicted cop-killer, and longtime fugitive Assata Shakur once wrote in a letter titled "To My People": "It is our duty to fight for our freedom. It is our duty to win. We must love each other and support each other. We have nothing to lose but our chains." (The fourth line was drawn from the Communist Manifesto of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.) In Shakur's original letter, she described herself as a "Black revolutionary" who had "declared war on the rich who prosper on our poverty, the politicians who lie to us with smiling faces, and all the mindless, heart-less robots [police] who protect them and their property."

178 > 2020 Poverty Rate: 15%

Yeah, the "poverty level" more or less defined to be the poorest x%, so (barring the imaginary full communism) there are always going to be people "in poverty" no matter how rich everyone gets.

The typical "poor person" in the United States has a home, plenty to eat, a car, internet service, and many other things that would put a person in the "well-off" category in other countries

Oh, and in case anyone cares: Joey Plugs has clinched the Communist Party nomination.

179 Great post, krakatoa. I too have had some unsatisfying experiences with local cops -- not nearly as many, or as serious, as yours, though.

And I can understand why some might take a little glee in watching black rioters and white man-babies (cosplaying as anarchists) tear up the same urban shit-hole that spawned them.

Alas, I cannot share in this schadenfreude, for one simple reason:

Think of the bars, man. THINK OF THE BARS.

There are Tiki bars I've never been to, being torn up right now. I've never been to Porco's Lounge in Cleveland, even though it's only 3 hours away. Why did I put this off?

And then there are all the great Tiki bars I have been to, that I'm worried about -- Lost Lake in Chicago, Latitude 29 in NOLA.

Shit -- I don't know if I can ever wear a Tiki shirt in a big city again, without being called "Proud Boy" and having to fight someone. And it's not like I carry concealed when I'm bar-hopping.

This shit is serious, krakatoa.

180 I've never had a really bad experience with a street cop. I've met some asshole cops, just like other assholes in business or industry. I think for the most part they're just like everyone else with the exception that their job brings them into contact with the scum of the population and that has a tendency over time to wear on them. I notice too that the worst cop behavior seems to be in big cities and states where bad behavior by the citizenry and the cops is tolerated or even encouraged at the local and state gummint level.

I'll go out on a limb and say that when police forces dissolve, thugs are going to learn that cops were there to protect them against citizens, not citizens from thugs. And in those areas, it's gonna look like Mogadishu or Baghdad in relatively short order.

181 I've had very good experiences with cops and pretty bad ones. County Sheriffs tend to be the most professional. State Troopers the least but in both cases there are exceptions.

Local police vary wildly but if you are a local you tend to get the benefit of the doubt.

I will make one note. My experience with law enforcement while overseas is much worse then anything that happened in the States.

193 First was when I was 18 and got pulled over. Had a 6-pack of Heineken in the back that I was taking to a graduation party later that night. Having unopened alcohol in your car is not illegal. Otherwise, how could you ever get it home from the store. Cop pulled me over for driving through a yellow light, hauled my passenger and I out, frisked us, found a tiny bag, maybe a gram of weed on my buddy.

Cop confiscated the beer and the weed, and let us go with a "Good beer and good weed...going to be a fun time at my place tonight."


Worst was when I was arrested and jailed overnight in a case of mistaken identity while visiting my sister at college in Michigan. They refused to even tell me what I was being charged with, which is certainly illegal. Cost me a grand in attorney's fees to get the whole thing dropped. My lawyer said they knew within an hour after arresting me they had the wrong guy but the Blue Wall closed in and I had to fight and pay to get the whole thing dropped.

213 Action matters and conversation matters, but financial support matters too. Alongside each of our Unilever sister brands, DSC will contribute $100,000 to Black Lives Matter.

So Unilever BOD has ordered all of the subsidiaries to pour money into a racist terror organization that has a track record of looting, arson and cop killing - for political change, of course.

Fighting racism by being even more racist.

I have one question for Unilever:

Black Lives Matter claims to use the money for "fighting racism". What sort of audit process do you have internally that follows through and validates that certain metrics and objectives are maintained by BLM?

IOW, handing money over to an organization that hasn't presented a business plan other than subsidizing riots, cop killings, propaganda campaigns, political corruption and lavish lifestyles of ne're do well Anti-American Communists. If any other group came up with a similar plan for your charity (such as Hamas, ISIS or the PLA), would you also blindly give it to them and then spend marketing dollars proclaiming your affiliation with their targets and objectives?

Or is this decision made purely on race?

221 In 2019 police officers fatally shot 1,004 people, most of whom were armed or otherwise dangerous. African-Americans were about a quarter of those killed by cops last year (235), a ratio that has remained stable since 2015. That share of black victims is less than what the black crime rate would predict, since police shootings are a function of how often officers encounter armed and violent suspects.

In 2018, the latest year for which such data have been published, African-Americans made up 53% of known homicide offenders in the U.S. and commit about 60% of robberies, though they are 13% of the population.

My point, I don't consider this a race problem. I think that the best solution to the so-called race problem is improving neighborhoods and installing upper middle-class values into those who live in them. Whole families, education, investing in the next generation at the expense of your own, these are all ideas which have been proven to work in America over and over and over again. If you can improve neighborhoods, police work becomes easier and tensions between police and communities lesson.

Small town cops seem to get a few hot heads. We had one here, new hire, older guy with previous experience. The department got rid of him. This jerk was running radar outside the city limits, and really liked showing authority. Retired railroad cop.

269 I have to say, despite all the various shitshows of late, last night raised my spirits higher than they've been in weeks if not months. We have no rioting here in Fort Collins, CO and the reopening is FINALLY looking like reopening. Old Town has sprung back to life, and sitting with some friends having an icy cold beer at a patio bar on a 95 degree evening felt SO good!

Seems weird to have all the tables spaced 6 feet apart, and you still have to go through the ridiculous theater of putting on a mask while you walk in, only to immediately take it off. Guy at the door said with a shiteatin' grin: "Whether you're sitting inside or outside, masks are recommended but not required." Exactly zero patrons were wearing them. But you have to walk in with one on. Because SCIENCE!

The city is definitely emptier with CSU closed, but it was so nice to see something approaching actual crowds. Almst nobody on the streets wearing masks. Maybe one in thirty. And social distancing? Get outta town! None of that going on. No live music spilling from the bars and clubs though, which needs to be addressed. Bring back concerts!

And it's so nice to see peoples faces again. I made up a rap on the spot after a few beers: "Let me see your faces - good gracious - you're beautiful the way that God made yas!"

People were cheering from other tables LOL. It was a fantastic evening. We're comin' back.

273 Since I moved back to my hometown, all interactions with cops have been fine. We've been blessed with a series of good sheriffs since the 80s, and it makes a huge difference. Back when there were all those stories of dog-shooting, our sheriff held seminars at every local PD about how to deal with dogs, and then wrapped them up with: "You've officially been trained in this now. If you freak out and shoot Fido, you're out of a job." It worked. We didn't have that problem here. People are generally happy with our cops.

286 " Screening for psychos needs to be a top priority from youth, to weed them out as much as possible. Regardless, that still leaves 98% that are decent people."

Local B'More talk show host had a segment yesterday based on a copy of two of Baltimore Counties Police exams from two years age that she had received.

Now mind you, Baltimore County has successfully been sued for racial discrimination on hiring practiced based upon discrimination against blacks by using a biased exam process.

And exactly what was the exam focusing on?

Reading comprehension
Writing ability
Logic
Memory retention

Sort of the stuff that one might expect an Officer to be able to perform.

And in the most recent graduating class from the academy, 18 of 50 graduated failed to meet the minimum grade on the topic of Constitutional Rights.

Now granted, the last profession interaction that I had with an Officer was probably more than 20 years ago, so my experiences then are not really applicable to the Officers of today.


But it seems we have possibly dumbed down our hiring practices just a little bit too far, in order to ensure that everyone has fair access to a Police retirement.

I see the same thing happening in Springfield IL this week. There have been several Floyd protest marches but no rioting whatsoever and no destruction other than some scattered attempts at window breaking and graffiti tagging on Sunday night. The restaurants opened up for outdoor service last weekend and people are flocking to that. There was definitely some tension in the air Sunday and Monday due to rumors that Antifa or similar groups were headed our way from Champaign (which did have some serious looting on Sunday), but those did not pan out.

Again, this talk about getting rid of/defunding police does not mean what we take it to mean.

It means replacing them with 'Community Patrols' or whatever euphemism they come up with, a force of 'social justice' cops that will police the jurisdiction in line with the philosophies of the Hard Left.

303 Here's the basic email I sent to several companies. This one went to Cole Haan. I received a response that one of their corporate people would be contacting me. I won't hold my breathe.

To the CEO of Cole Haan:

Like all of your email subscribers, I received the below news blast from Cole Haan and felt compelled to express my thoughts and reply to you as a result. I am deeply troubled by this on a number of levels you should know about. The entire country was appalled at what happened in Minneapolis. With near unison, we all feel that the police officer involved should face the consequences of his actions. On that point, we're unified. Where I am most troubled is by the fact that, by releasing this news blast, and committing part of your profits as stipulated below, you are reinforcing the unproven belief that this was a racially motivated incident. Nothing indicates this, yet you further stoke that extremely dangerous notion without proof. Moreover, the federal government's own statistics do not support a theory of racial animus in incidents involving police officers with whites versus blacks. It appears to me that fact means little to you. It's very offensive to me that you take this position, with apparently little thought to your customers or any other viewpoint. I'm able to look at statistics. I'm able to, so far, ascertain there's no proof this was a targeted assault against a person of color. If that were the case, I would be the first in line to say so. Why are you unwilling to step aside from flared tempers and emotions and think logically about that? Where is your "stand in solidarity" message for the thousands of small business owners and others who have had their establishments burned to the ground and looted? Instead, you chose to look the other way and bellow out the mindless racial aspect in this entire tragedy? You don't seem to care about those people who have been harmed by the insane rioting and looting that has engulfed city after city. You don't seem to care about the police officers who have already been stabbed and targeted in retaliation. My family member is part of our federal police force. Because companies like yours meddle in political affairs you really have no business in, your message helps put my family member in danger, fueling mindless outrage that has no justification. I have shopped at Cole Haan for many years. In truth, they are my favorite shoes and boots. I own multiple pairs and have given them as gifts. I know you won't miss one customer, and likely don't care what my viewpoint is. Regardless, my point isn't to hurt you financially. But you've made yourself heard. You've made your position clear. You've hitched your wagon to unsubstantiated and unjustified madness and therefore, I will shop elsewhere in the future. I truly wish you would've stuck with what you do best: sell footwear. Thanks for your time.

It took many years before I put that mystery together: The "rhubarb" was actually knotweed, a common weed in the east, native to Asia, that is indeed closely related to rhubarb. I always wished she would have left it our entirely and just made strawberry pie.

TuCa covered this the other night. In 2019 10 unarmed blacks were killed by cops. As I recall, 6 or 7 of the cops were no-billed because the shootings were justified (bascially, the blacks were attacking them with the intent of doing bodily harm). The other cops were charged with murder.
On the other hand, 57 cops were killed in the line of duty last year. A nontrivial difference. However, that does not excuse the boorish behavior related by other posters here. I've had my share of experiences with shithead cops in my life. But my father was a cop for 30 years, on the street. And he said its like any other job, you get good ones and bad ones.Also, TuCa said that something like (if I get this wrong, blame an old man's flaky memory) 7000 blacks were shot and killed last year. And who the hell shot all those people? Other blacks for the most part. Funny how that never gets talked about....

326 Second, we are horrified and enraged by the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery as well as by the race-driven deaths of countless other black men & women in the United States.
________________

There isn't any evidence that any of those deaths were "race driven."

The cop who knelt on Floyd's neck had a history of excessive force complaints. He was just a heavy-handed cop, but there is no evidence he was any more of a jerk to blacks than to anybody else.

The Arbery guy was a thief and had been spotted going into houses in that area. The guys who were trying to protect the neighborhood saw him going into a house, called cops, and then followed him to keep an eye on him. Arbery saw them following him, and instead of moving away from them, he confronted them and grabbed the gun of one of them, and that's how he got shot. There is no evidence that it was racially-motivated.

Taylor was at home when plain-clothed narcotics cops entered her apartment and her boyfriend, thinking it was a home invasion, shot at the cops. The cops returned fire and killed Taylor. They were just shooting in the general direction of the boyfriend who was shooting at them. This was just shitty police practice. There is no evidence it was racially motivated.

This crap of claiming that every death of a black person is "racially motivated" so long as a white person is involved is bullshit. Blacks kill whites in far greater numbers than white kill blacks, yet we don't have anybody out protesting, or companies relentlessly virtue-signalling, about those deaths. Most of those deaths aren't racially-motivated either, and the ones that are never get any attention, because they don't fit the narrative.

Just really sick of the lying and posturing and holier-than-thou preening. Want to protest cops using excessive force or behaving stupidly? Great, there is plenty to criticize there. But don't make it about race when it isn't.

335 235

In 2019 police officers fatally shot 1,004 people, most of whom were armed or otherwise dangerous. African-Americans were about a quarter of those killed by cops last year (235), a ratio that has remained stable since 2015. That share of black victims is less than what the black crime rate would predict, since police shootings are a function of how often officers encounter armed and violent suspects.

In 2018, the latest year for which such data have been published, African-Americans made up 53% of known homicide offenders in the U.S. and commit about 60% of robberies, though they are 13% of the population.

Posted by: rhennigantx dont californicate my TEXAS at June 06, 2020 07:38 AM

Facts and statistics are racist and white supremacy.

In all seriousness though, I think that is actually what too many people think who are a part of or support Black Lives Matter.

We can show them all the facts and stats we want, they will reject them out of hand.

You cannot reason someone out of something they did not first reason themselves into.

Black Lives Matter members and supporters are basically the Melvin Udall definition of a woman: think of a man and take away reason and accountability.

Or, they're like immature children. Don't get their way, they throw a temper tantrum. But instead of knocking things off the toy section of the store and laying on the ground throwing a hissy fit, they loot, riot, vandalize and commit arson.

They lack reason and are not being held accountable. America is now acting like the bad parent giving in to her child exhibiting bad behavior. Which only encourages that behavior to continue.

355 As long as we're sharing police stories, let me tell you how they interact with Big Banks to fuck the little guy...

A person in Massachusetts went onto my website and ordered a few thousand dollars of product, paid for it with a credit card and had me next day air the shipment.

Within a week, I get a notification from the credit card processor that the person who owns the card didn't authorize the charge, even though the shipment went to and was signed for by the owner of the card.

I produced the order, proof of shipping and receipt and all other details to the processor, but they don't give a shit and just deducted the amount from my bank.

When I called the police in the town where the shipment went, they basically said "fuck you, you're not a citizen here, so why would we care if one of our residents stole from you?" They said to call my local police.

I called the local police and they basically said "fuck you, we don't have any authority out of state, so there's no reason for us to waste any time on this".

Sure, I could hire a lawyer and sue, but that would cost far more than I lost.

Next time, I'm going to organize a protest and loot enough to cover my losses.

366 If there is one fortunate fall out from the last few years, conservatives who were suckers for the police, for the military and for intelligence agencies have discovered what evil motherfuckers infest all of these groups to varying degrees. The same week hearings exposed the FBI, DOJ and IC as little more than the mentally retarded versions of the KGB, military brass past and present acted in ways that would put a South American junta to shame.

It is time to rein in every goddamned one of these groups and castrate them. Of course, that would require a functional opposition party and ours sucks balls, too.

369 So while I do nor support the argument...if members of an identifiable group can state that they have a fear of Police Officers not only based upon their individual negative experiences in the past with them, but based upon familial experiences in the past, and even from news reports on non-related members of the group experiencing negative and hostile outcomes with the Police, and that this fear is both understandable and reasonable..

It would seem that a member of another ethnic group who might hold a distrust of the first identifiable group based on either personal experience, familial past experience, or even news coverage of violence against their group would be both reasonable and understandable.


Either everybody gets to be predjudiced for whatever the reason...

The shave quality is better.

A few months later I got a travel brush, slides inot a nice little sleeve for packing.

I haven't bought anything other than a new shaving brush, an indulgence, for three years. My blades look to last 4-5 more years.

And remember that the 13% is half women - who don't generally commit
violent crime - so we're down to 6%. And the 6% includes infants and
octogenarians so we're really talking about roughly 2% of the population
who commit over half the violent crime in America. But I'm racist for
pointing that out because Math or something.


And, of that 2%, many are already in jail, and, most importantly, there are black men who simply aren't criminals. So the number is even smaller than that.
But the ones that are violent criminals are very profligate.

What do you suggest my wife and I do with our aging parents, who need our help, uproot them from their family and friend networks, from the places they have lived for most of their lives?

Or from jobs many of us have taken entire careers to create, that are not easily moved to Red America?

There's a smugness among some in comfortably conservative areas that at times can be every bit as infuriating as the contempt inherent in people who talk about the "flyover states.."

As one of our commenters often says about the Seattle area...."I grew up here...I'm not leaving."

I'm guessing that is a known and existing stat, because I can't imagine someone estimated the unknowns.

I am blessed in that I've worked from home for years and can live anywhere in the US, but most people do not have that opportunity.

417 The primary problem police face is perspective distortion. Because police deal up close and personally with criminals on a regular basis they are blinded by that up close and personal contact with crime. Police tend to see the general populace as composed of perps, and victims - because that is what they deal with. They simply fail to see that the vast majority of people are neither of those two, because those kind of people are invisible to them - being outside of their normal experience.
Thus when you do deal with a police officer - he assigns you to one of the two categories his experience tells him you belong in: if you are not a victim of a crime - you must be a criminal - and he treats you accordingly. You, of course - not being a criminal - are outraged at being treated like one. Of course your outrage, at this injustice, adds to the police officers confirmation bias that you are a criminal, and you get the RESPECT MAH ATHORITAH response from the officer who is now convinced he has a disrespectful scum bag on his hands.
On the other hand, actual crime victims are a pain in the ass for the police, because they can't do anything about your victim status. So they naturally don't want to deal with you. In addition they are going to be looking at the actual victims suspiciously. Because victims are involved in a crime - they think subconsciously that the victim is part of the problem.

Other than making officers aware of how distorted their view of the world is, the only suggestion I have for the police is to develop friends and social contacts in the real world out side of their jobs.

427 Yeah as a white man I could list the good and bad experiences with law enforcement. Some of which I deserved, some of which was officers just showing their ass and/or being unprofessional.
That being said our boys in blue are doing a stand up job.

Which brings us to the Floyd murder. I cannot for the life of me watch that video and come to some other conclusion and to add to that it became clear, IMHO when a day or so later black owners were armed and protecting their store as well as running off looters. A s happened they waved down cops who instantly came to the store and started to arrest the owners....Just BAM... Black....Arrest and they weren't not even listening to the witnesses around them.
It was then and there where I for once could understand what the BLM people were saying. As a white guy who had his own experiences to go on that were both my fault at times and not at others. I these officers just roll in and make BS detainments/arrests for no other reason other than skin color that I could see.

Sorry for the long post here but I want to end it by saying that I loath the BLM movement. It's absolutely divisive, completely hypocritical and a cover, meaning to be or not, for antifa scum bags.

The last thing is that, IMHO, we bring so much of this nonsense on ourselves by refusing to frog march politicians breaking the law with impunity. It all starts there if we want to end this merry go round. Simply arrest and indict politicians who break the law and watch all of the other stuff down the line get the message.

Oh, absolutely.

Same as uniform sentencing incarcerating record numbers of black males because someone thought a white dude was getting off easy and that meant injustice, these same people in the 80s didn't think for one minute what their demands for law enforcement to "fix" their communities would entail.

And here they are insisting cops assume all blacks are on overdose levels of meth and fentanyl, or that they don't police their neighborhoods at all.

generally commit violent crime - so we're down to 6%. And the 6%
includes infants and octogenarians so we're really talking about roughly
2% of the population who commit over half the violent crime in America.
But I'm racist for pointing that out because Math or something.

You pretty well nailed it. I watch all the cops shows and have for some time now (COPS, Live PD and the like, all of which have been taken off the air now), I guess as a sort of homage to my father, who was a street cop for 30 years.And these are all shows where the camera guys just follow the cops around on whatever calls they get. It's not "staged", its just typical police work. And yes, the sad fact is most of the malefactors the cops deal with, a simple majority, are black. And its almost always drugs, guns (stolen), robbery, assault, gang shootings and the like. Latinos come in second, with the hardened white criminals coming in a strong third.
And oh yes, I've noticed cops are real quick to draw their guns nowadays (30 years on the street and you could count on the fingers of one hand the number of times my father ever had to draw his gun; things have changed, and for the worse). But I've also seen the videos, body and dash cameras, where largely black or Hispanics, pulled over for some minor traffic infraction, have jumped out and started banging away at the cops with their usually stolen guns. And as mentioned before, 57 cops were killed last year in the line of duty, so I can understand them being a bit froggy.Something else is that I've seen that knee trick countless times on these shows, but never on the suspect's neck. It was always on their back, to restrain them because they were fighting. And I guarantee you that is what happened with St George Floyd. They tried to put him in the patrol car and he started fighting, which is how he ended up on the ground. You could see in the first video that Floyd was mouthing off nonstop after he'd been pulled from his car and cuffed.
So he starts fighting, the cops put him on the ground, but then that one cop screws up and puts his knee on Floyd's neck instead of his back, which would not have harmed him, and then they could have gotten him immobilized and put him in the patrol car, matter closed. Don't know what that idiot cop was thinking, but he is now getting what he deserves, a murder charge.
But that is not enough for the Antifa/BLM jerkoffs. They want whitey's blood for for one cop's stupid decision (and the other cops for not stopping the first one). A pity the authorities and their cops are letting these thugs get away with all this looting and burning. One in no way justifies the other.

I haven't had the bad experiences of many; but I haven't been close to any police officers, either.
One local Sergeant had a train store (as in toy trains, HO Scale, wtc.). As we were, I thought, kidding ea h other, he "joked" about making sure I was treated like a King... Rodney King... if I were ever pulled over... this was in 1992...

There's a bit in a book by Marie Corelli: (the he who shows compassion is Satan, incidentally)

The AMAZINGLY stupid part of this rioting and attempted Insurrection is that the Democrats had a model of how to solve this, and they could point to a Democrat Governor for the answer.

Minneapolis and Saint Paul were a complete total shitshow Wednesday Thursday and Friday. Finally Saturday morning Walz called up the entire Minnesota National Guard, all 13,000. By Sunday morning, they had their answer,
IT WORKED!!!!

After Sunday night, they had confirmed it. No dead protesters, no broken heads, no looting, almost no arson.

The protests went on, but they were PEACEFUL.

Cuomo, Newsom, Jabba, Evers, Northam all could have said I am going to call up our National Guard to stabilize our cities. They could have stopped billions of dollars in looting and arson. Like Minnesota, it would have STOPPED the violence.

Also, they would have had a great replacement for senile old Joe Biden. "Governor Tim Walz, the Democrat that stopped the violence tearing our cities apart." Democrat, teacher, veteran, from southern Minnesota Farm Country. Reminds everyone of the old Democrats like Hubert Humphrey, Walter Mondale, and George McGovern, but just as radical as Nancy and Barack.


Thank God the Democrats are fools.

500 (Reuters) - The U.S. unemployment rate dropped unexpectedly in May, but

not all workers benefited equally as joblessness among African Americans

and Asians rose, signaling some minorities face a longer recovery as

the economy slowly rebounds from the coronavirus shutdowns.



Not racism-- LOCATION.
Big cities and leftist enclaves remain shut down.

A friend near retirement age moved from bucolic, suburban Maryland to Philadelphia last year. He said he was done with big cities (before the riots) so he will move again to the suburbs. And he grew up in Chicago.

In Indiana, they report "new cases" but they are REPORTED new cases over a number of weeks. So this weeks "new" numbers can be over three or four weeks.

When husband and I looked at the numbers six weeks ago and saw that, we looked at each other and said: SCAM.

507 As a person living in a Blue state I think Red staters should be smug. They live in states with people who have functioning brains. We live in states where the majority of people are morons (not the good kind!). As a corrupt piece of shit once said, elections have consequences.

Sure moving is traumatic. So is getting your house burned down or getting beat up or murdered by a pack of wild Democrats. This is our reality now. We have to make decisions based on reality.

I'm staying because my job isn't easily transferrable. I have to work in all 5 NYC boroughs so the risk of personal harm is a known possibility. I'll pick up and leave as soon as I believe the risks outweigh the benefits. In the meantime I don't expect sympathy from anyone if I wind up having to deal with negative consequences from my own personal decision to stay in this lawless shithole.

509 Every cop should have a bodycam he can't turn off.

They have waaaay to much power over their fellow citizens to be trusted unsupervised when supervision is so easy.
And half the problem is an insane lack of professionalism from folks who brag about being professional 24/7. Until they come across an example of their bad behavior, then it's "stressful job dealing with criminals, give us a break."

Posted by: JB at June 06, 2020 09:39 AM (TO8Xm)

510 They're all just in it so they can be double dipping union thugs. Someone getting justice for a crime committed against them may accidentally happen, but it's not the purpose. The purpose is to bleed the taxpayer dry in one city, get your pension, then move to a small town and try to get a 3/4 pension.

I grew up in a small town in upstate NY and none of the cops were actually from my small town. They'd all come in in their layer years to get that sweet pension.

They don't really care one way or another. They just wanna slide on by and and get that nice fat retirement while real people work and don't get rich and fat off the backs of the taxpayer.

It's not that they're a roving band of highly committed white supremacists with a laser-focused mission. They're just lazy and can't be bothered and really don't wanna get stabbed by a crackhead.

Take Off For The Great White ONT

Well guys, it seems like we're not alone. The civil unrest has reached Canada.

Darn.jpg

Virtue: Signaled

So the other day, I think it was....Wednesday? Might have been Tuesday. Anyhow, millions of people posted black boxes to their social media accounts in order to “affect change”. There aren't enough rolleyes in the world.

OK, everybody here who always agrees 100% with another person, raise your hand.

I didn't think so. One of the things that drives me nuts is how the left tends to march in lockstep while on the right many people are willing to scream “Burn the witch!” when anyone else on our side disagrees about something or does something that they don't like. And I'm not talking about the Never Trump grifters like Billy Krystol (Your Captain), Rick Wilson (Your Ship's Doctor), Max Boot (Your Yoeman Purser), George Will (Your Bartender), Jonah Goldberg (Vicki) and Tom “The Expert” Nichols (Your Cruise Director). These people are rightfully excoriated by Ace on a daily basis. And I realize that part of it can be attributed to the fact that we're individualists while they are collectivists.

No, I'm talking about the vitriol directed from the right at people like Candace Owens (She's an opportunist who changed positions!) or Charlie Kirk (Trumper!). Both of them are doing more for the conservative cause right now than a thousand op-eds in the WSJ. You build a coalition by working with people who, if you're lucky, you will agree with 80% of the time. You can compromise on the 20%, or work with other folks on that, but schisms in the name of ideological purity are a sure way to hand the country over to the commies.

Anyhow, here's an article In defense of Charlie Kirk and Turning Point USA.

The problem lies in the preceding paragraph. We have a long history of making compromises with people who only really care about the 20% and the 80% was just talk. So we've been conditioned to expect betrayal. I'm not talking just politics either here. My church (currently not really meeting) is on our third pastor in a row that seemed okay, but the one thing he was leftist on turns out to be his passion in life.


Maybe the existential threat we're under will fix that, because I can't think of any other way. I have no problem with Candace or Charlie, by the way, just wanted to make the observation.

82 A note about Tyler, posted this in the last thread but since you're here, Weird Dave:

as I left downtown Tyler this afternoon, I saw a bunch of people gathering in the square, and I thought "oh no, not here too." But when I got home, I found out that a black pastor from Kilgore had asked to have a community prayer meeting on the square, and he had invited people from all faiths to come down to the square tonight to pray with him, for Peace in the Community and the Nation. That made my spirits pick up considerably.

Of course you'll never see that on national news, we're just hicks out in the wilderness, not worthy of any attention. But we're here, whether they pay any attention to us or not.

(fyi, Kilgore is about 30 miles to the east)

Actually, he DID bring balance to The Force, it just took 30 years
of tyranny, repression and genocide before he turned to the Light.



That fuckup Qui Gon got the timing wrong.



Could things have gone any worse if they'd just left the kid with his mother? It seems like Vader did nothing but turn the world into hell for most of his life, then he gets to bug out at the end as a 'good' guy.

97 I'm writing a children's book that my daughter has, after many years of me asking, agreed to illustrate.

It's titled "You're White, And That's Alright".

It follows a young boy who is shamed by his liberal teacher and multi-cultural classmates for being white.

He is obviously dejected and feels bad about his whiteness, but his father begins to tell him of all the great things white people have done throughout history. Going to the moon. Discovering antibiotics. Creating the automobile. Etc, you get the picture.

In the end the teacher begins to shame him again in class, and he stands up and reads an essay he wrote on how white people are great and of course the book concludes with the boy proclaiming "I'm White, and that's Alright!"

I think it will be a top seller on Amazon once I find a publisher.

I have tuned out FOX for the past two days, hardly watching or reading any political/news crap at all, and I'm already feeling better.

I hoed in the garden today for about 6 hours total -- with drink breaks every hour or so. It's been a while since I've worked this hard. I noticed my cap bill had white salt stains from all the sweat. And my T-shirts get crusty. It's been quite a while since I've worked like this.

And it feels great. I've got one good knee now, and that has made quite a difference.

And during all that, I figure I drank close to 3 quarts of Gatorade/tea, and my piss was still pretty strong. I was sweating like a lunatic.

Bat flying around the house late last night before disappearing, no response from the exterminator this morning, family gathering for lunch at my in-laws.... and since it was the night after Pooky's EMDR therapy, he tried to strangle me in his sleep. Again. (I have tried to sleep on the couch, it doesn't work, and if I can shake Pooky awake, it usually clears the nightmares completely.) For some reason, my therapist is not surprised that I dread going to bed.

But because of WD's article and having nothing better to do, I'm heading upstairs. Sleep tight, you Morons.

apparently that was racist, and now members of the body are looking to formally have me removed from the board.

the look on the faces of everyone involved when i cite USC 18 sec. 242, conspiracy, etc in my civil lawsuit against them, and when they find out i have filed a criminal complaint with the DOJ will be priceless.

160 I have a sweet story about our experience in Tyler.

A long, long time ago, hubby and I were stranded with a torn fan belt about 6 miles outside Tyler, in an old '56 Chevy that we were driving home. Hot! We found a little house along the interstate and walked to a very sweet elderly black lady's home, who was initially very hesitant to let both of us in, as we probably looked dodgy coming from the Interstate. We also had our little dog with us. She was having her card party ladies over that day.

So I said I totally understood, and sat outside on her step while she let my husband in to call her nephews, who just happened to have a garage in Tyler. They towed us into Tyler (with us sitting in the front seat of the Chevy) downtown to their garage, and they just happened to have a fan belt for the old '56, which was almost a miracle. Fixed it right up, and we were on our way.

Anyway, while we were waiting, she called us and apologized profusely for appearing rude for not letting both of us in, and offered to bring us down some sandwiches or something to eat, which was so very kind.

After we got to talking, we decided we'd keep in touch, and she wanted to make sure we got home ok. She gave us her address, and I wrote her as soon we got home. She wrote back, and we did correspond for a while before we assumed she passed away.

So if everyone is as nice as Ruby was those many years ago, you're in a good place! Good luck to you and your family on your exciting move!

From way back, it's always been known as a Doctor's and Lawyers's town. All kinds of jobs like any city, of course. City is about 100,000, but it's known for having medical facilities for about 300,000 people, since it serves as the main medical center for all of the surrounding counties. A big Junior College and a branch of UT, both with roughly 9,000 students.

The hard part is drilling down to find what the core values are.
No other way to a real and honest compromise.

At the most basic levels does this guy believe in any sort of natural rights of the individual or something more barbaric such as might makes right and everything flows from there? What is their lowest common denominator and is compatible with yours?



Two wolves and a sheep deciding what is for dinner. Most people think they are a wolf. That is why most new laws create more binds.

Conversely some might think that most new laws should strip away old laws and release the binds.

That is why at best most 'compromise' should be doing nothing.

I think I know why salt tablets got discontinued for the most part. I remember as a teen my dad believed in them, and since I rode my bike everywhere he gave me some so I wouldn't get dehydrated. I had taken them after eating with no problems, but once I was riding and I swallowed one on an empty stomach - 5 minutes later I felt just like someone had punched me in the stomach, hard! I almost wrecked my bike, it hit me so hard, and I had to find a shady spot to lay down for about 20 minutes before I could move again. No more salt tablets for me after that!

215 ETA Update on moving to Tyler. They countered and we accepted. About 7 grand more than I was hoping the counter offer would be, but I wasn't going to quibble as accepting means they will cancel the open house they had scheduled for this weekend. So, unless something goes wrong (barring something like a bad inspection, there are 2 things that are possible but not probable) we're Texas bound.

--------------------------------

Congrats on the house!

I'm surprised, though, that they cancelled the open house. One thing I learned when we were looking for a house is that the purpose of an open house is only partly to sell the house. The realtor also uses it to drum up interest for other properties they're selling.

We actually went to an open house where the realtor told us it had already been sold.

If you aren't trained, and I am dubious of Mpls cop training, you can fuck someone up for life. On the other hand a traditional choke hold didn't kill Floyd.
Posted by: thathalfrican - Clark Kent with the glasses off at June 05, 2020 11:03 PM (IYHxL)

that's a tough one, because if the person is violent enough, if you can't choke them? You may have to shoot them.

They keep taking things off the table, thinking there will be no consequence.

Saw this in the military. They would limit the Rules of Engagement to the point where it was all, or nothing.

Beirut, 83. Marines on Guard could not even LOAD THEIR FUCKING WEAPONS.

Why? Two Lebanese Armed forces guys, a few weeks before, had been out jogging along our perimeter. They were ordered to halt, but didn't understand English, so they jack rabbited, just as a Marine fired a warning shot.

One in a million shot, hit BOTH of them in the legs, with ONE shot.

But due to that, the Suits (not military, but State Dept.) ordered us to not even load our weapons, until we were under fire.

So, when the Terrorists drove a dump truck full of explosives through the gate? Marine there could not stop them in time.

My theory was that he was following protocol exactly, and knew how to kill him within protocol, not because he was black, but because there was some shady shit going on in that bar that they were both involved in, and he was afraid Mr Floyd was about to blow it all up.

But maybe he was just an ass who was not going to give any quarter because he was being filmed.

301 Minneapolis city council also passed "duty to report" and "duty to intervene" regarding excessive force.

Meaning, if you see your partner or another officer doing anything questionable, then you need to call it into dispatch then and there on scene, and forcibly stop them if they won't stop themselves.

Failure to do either results in the bystander cop being equally liable for any disciplinary or criminal charges as the "out of control" officer.

Now, again, unintended consequences, but I can imagine those "duties" turning lots of junior cops into snitches, and making Internal Affairs adjudicate a whole bunch of minor, petty complaints.

Which tells me there were folks involved higher up than the asshole cop.

Of course there's nothing stopping him from ratting higher-ups out; what's he got to lose now?

So it's probably just coincidence.

327 So, tomorrow's Million Person March On DC Because Trump Mumble Mumble George Floyd!!! promises to be very interesting.

We know the "news" networks are working with AntiFa and the Democrat Party to stage this thing. I predict enormous damage to public monuments, a very large crowd being whipped into a frenzy to charge the White House, and at least one very carefully set up attack on a federal agent or national guardsmen that results in one or more dead rioter caught very much on camera.

This thing stopped being about George Floyd 10 minutes after he died. It is all about painting Trump as a dictator.

Place your bets and say your prayers. It will be extraordinarily ugly tomorrow. We are approaching the Dems' Endgame for 2020.

338 @315: "I want accountability but I can see this not working well."

Personally, I think micromanagement of departmental policy by the city council is a terrible way to begin reforming things.

They should blow up the collective bargaining agreement with the union, and start by getting rid of procedures that allow bad cops to rack up dozens of complaints, yet keep working like nothing ever happened.

It sounds like most complaints are seen as meaningless nuisances. Maybe they need to learn how to dismiss the obvious bullshit, and take serious complaints more seriously with a three strikes mentality.

But forcing cops jump through even more hoops will only make the union less willing to play ball on bigger issues.

357 Gatorade was said to win football games in Florida, AOP.

I doubt it is the same formula today, as I recall in the 70s it didn't taste particularly good. Now they make a bazillion versions and flavors, but it seems to me they removed most if not all of the potassium. There is a formula or ratio of electrolytes and glucose that allows for staying hydrated.

Salt, potassium, sugar. Baking soda in a pinch is also useful. But as an actual rehydration beverage, "sugar free" won't work. Glucose is necessary to carry the salts into the bloodstream or somesuch.

Marketing versus actual utility and science, seems to me.

376 I like both Owens and Kirk. Hannity grates on me and I can't watch him, but I recognize that a lot of people do like him and get information from him that they don't get elsewhere. I am admirer of Tucker Carlson because I think he's one of the bravest voices out there and he easily could have chosen the easy route and become another conservative-lite voice, like his former friends Jonah Goldberg and Bill Kristol. I think that's true of Mark Steyn as well - he is probably a difficult person to work with but he's been canned from a lot of cushy gigs because he writes what he thinks.

A few here go ballistic whenever Tucker criticizes Trump. I don't always agree with the criticism but jeez, people, it's not like there are so many conservative voices out there in the media that we can toss Carlson overboard, just because he doesn't praise everything Trump does.

Pretty good overall. McDonald's removed the window plywood yesterday, so that was nice, but I expect most businesses will wait until next weekend. Lunds is open after several days of serious interior work. I saw a metric shit ton of cooler and deli case glass going into the dumpster, and I think they had to restock most inventory from scratch for safety reasons. Ace Hardware still closed, but tentative reopening on Monday. I spoke with some of their staff this morning, and they got hit badly three nights in a row, including a busted up manager's office safe.

423 I read a piece earlier today about the 2 out of the 4 arrested cops who are going to hang Chauvin. They were both new on the force, being trained by him, and it might have only been their 3rd day on the job. They're now saying (and apparently will testify) that they knew he was doing something really bad and that they tried to tell him to stop, but he ignored them, and they couldn't do anything because he had seniority and they were so new.

Legally, what that means is that 2 of the cops on the scene are going to testify that Chauvin knew he was killing Floyd, because they told him. No matter what actually happened, this testimony is probably enough to bump his charges up to Murder 1 now, and his conviction is a lock.

as far as the 2 who are trying to save their asses, I don't really think a jury is going to be too impressed by their claim that "yeah, we're cops, and yeah, we knew a man was being killed in front of our eyes, but he was our boss so we just sat there and watched."

This kind of split, getting all of the defendants to testify against each other, is a Prosecutors dream come true.

I have killed two steers with a .22 pistol. One was just over 1,000 lbs. one in the low 900 lbs. zone.

One shot each, center skull, on a line about equidistant between the eyes and ears.

They hit the floor of the butcher's first cutting station as if they'd been hit by lightning itself.

For the record. A 900 lb. steer's frontal skull plate is a much heavier cranial bone than you might otherwise imagine.

No, of course. A .22 LR isn't the medicine to prescribe for a charging PCP boosted specimen of the subspecies "thug".

Unless you can put one right between the blinkers, mid-stride.

Then he's just another steer on the butcher's floor.

They likely have known each other for years. They both worked security at the same bar/nightclub. The guess is that the nightclub they BOTH worked at was a front for one of the "alphabet" agencies of the US Government, and was actually passing counterfeit money to track some of their "guests".
The bar had been closed, and George needed money, and he knew where there was cash (counterfeit) and took some. Chauvin was the "enforcer" for the operation, and was sent out to clean up Floyd.
Floyd originally didn't resist arrest when they stopped him, but really got upset when he saw Chauvin show up, and was NOT going to get in Chauvin's car.

And I should add - the fact that they're going to testify that they knew something real bad was happening at the time is all it is going to take to hang (figure of speech) all 4 of them. Their better play would have been for all 4 to claim that they thought it was a legal hold and they had no idea Floyd was in trouble. But they didn't have the nerve needed to brazen it out.

No.
And DC Mayor Bowser wants a spectacle and see the city burned.

It's not just another city, it is the Capital. She is behaving in a totally seditious manner, reminiscent of the Copperhead Democrats of the Civil War days.

The "march" tomorrow will be lucky to have 100K, but the Media will have a lot of close shots and insist that it's a million. Still enough to damage a lot of the city, monuments, etc., especially if they bring out a lot of local talent after the sun goes down.

I have killed two steers with a .22 pistol. One was just over 1,000 lbs. one in the low 900 lbs. zone.

One shot each, center skull, on a line about equidistant between the eyes and ears.




Jim
Sunk New Dawn

When we were kids, 4 boys always hungry and growing, the folks would raise a steer and then have it butchered and wrapped locally.

There are many advantages, including lower cost and knowing where your beef came from. Also, you get the cuts the way you want them. 2 inch thick T-Bones? Dad liked his steak.

A few times, I would go with dad and mom and help wrap the cuts as the butcher delivered them.

The butcher used a single shot .22 rifle, behind the ear.

I asked him once, have you ever had to shoot a second shot?

He didn't hesitate, and said, "not in my 30 years of being a butcher, but I suppose there could be a day when I miss."

I'll never forget that, how deadpanned he delivered that line.

Maybe - except since the statement today was in public, the Prosecutor can now ask them about it at trial and say "Why did you change your story? How many different stories do you have?" And the Jury was going to hear it.

I'd say the statements made today were a fatal mistake for all 4 of them.

by the way - in a case I'm still following, but no one else is interested in anymore, the Arbery case in Georgia had its first evidentiary hearing a couple days ago. It was an absolute train wreck for the Defendants; the McMichaels are now in just as much trouble as Chauvin is. They're toast.

But it's not their story. None of them are on record, formally or informally, saying any of this themselves. It's one lawyer's story, said only after he reneged on his own "no comment", and for all we know, it's just a trial balloon to gauge reaction, or a public way of scaring the other defendants' lawyers into discussing a collective strategy.

515 504 @499: "Maybe - except since the statement today was in public, the Prosecutor can now ask them about it at trial and say "Why did you change your story?"

But it's not their story. None of them are on record, formally or informally, saying any of this themselves. It's one lawyer's story, said only after he reneged on his own "no comment", and for all we know, it's just a trial balloon to gauge reaction, or a public way of scaring the other defendants' lawyers into discussing a collective strategy.
Posted by: Walter Freeman at June 06, 2020 12:34 AM (+oVP5)



No defendant is required to testify. Charging all four officers could be a mistake - uncharged the officers could be subpoenaed; charged none of them can. All you have is the medical evidence and the testimony of the locals, many of whom may have a history where their veracity may be impeached.

516 Well that was kind of fun.

I stopped at a Biergarten that sells craft beer on the way home and was smoking a cigarette when some younger hipsters solicited my input on the merits of communism.

Rather than refute them, I instead tried a different tactic. I agreed with them that communism was the best form of government, noting that it would obviously be the most intelligent form of government because white males had invented it in its modern form. I noted that highly intelligent white Russian males had created the perfect system and that with a really powerful central government that we could easily control women and minority groups, as it should be.

I ranted on that democracy was bullshit, that it allowed women and minority groups to weigh in and that was the main problem with the west.

I did all of it with a very even tone and a deadpan expression.

They stared at me incredulously. Then one of them said "Well that a not really right" .

I said "sure it is, looked at the most efficient communist countries, like China. They keep women in their appropriate place and they keep their government racially pure. They don't put them in leadership. It's the best system. I'm with you guys."

Then they actually started arguing against it and I said they sounded like a bunch of Fox News watchers and they got all agitated and walked off.

It was quite fun.

cases with this much notoriety are not like normal cases at all. Every juror is going to know that their name and address will be leaked if they vote the "wrong way", and howling mobs will be on their doorstep that night.

With Chauvin, all the Prosecutor is going to have to do is walk up to the front of the courtroom, look at the jury, and say 'Hey, This Guy!!! (points to Chauvin) Amiright???" The Prosecution rests. "

He'd need to get a change of venue to Korea, or maybe Nepal, to get an open minded jury now.

523 Unlike in the 1960's, the riots look to be gearing up for a second weekend of violence. We shall see what tomorrow brings. Back in the day, even democrat mayors and governors understood the need for law and order. Today's dem elected officials want to be seen siding with the thugs, rioters, arsonists and looters.

On the other hand, picked up some supplies at a local 2nd Amendment Dispensary today, and the lines were out the door. One line to get in the store, because the pretense of social distancing is still in effect for the law abiding, and a much longer line to wait for your paperwork to be completed and filed online.

There are many new 2nd Amendment supporters being formed thanks to these riots. People are seeing with their own eyes that when seconds count, the police are hours away if they come at all.

Agreed. When I was a younger man I used the 40mm, but as I got older, and the rheumatism set in, I had to down grade to the 25mm.

It has been twenty years since I was in a state court for a felony criminal trial, and it was not Minnesota. That said, I do not know about overcharging, I do know that unless he can get an officer to turn state's evidence none of them can be compelled - as defendants - to testify. Without any officer testimony Ellison has video evidence (easily disputed), medical evidence, and testimony from local eyewitnesses - who may already have a court record making them easily impeached.

Ellison is gambling on a cop turning; while at the same time the cops' best defense is to stick together. Based on what little I know, here is my analysis.

Posted by: logprof at June 06, 2020 01:05 AM (oZuI0)

I'm not AF, but have used AF and Army resources for PCS.

Generally the military does their musical chair PCS during summer months. Most recruits come in after HS is out, initial tour is fixed number of years, so PCS cycles for most follows when school break. Sidebar - had a SGT who was on an odd cycle, most of his career his just missed his new units major deployments because he showed a bit late for the 'cycle'. He'd be on Rear Detachment. Learned a lot from him about these cycles.

Anything involving moves involves PCS Orders (JTR governs) which list entitlements and terms. A lot of shtuff you cannot ship or don't dare.
One thing that never varies - the 'movers' WILL steal shit and bust things and deny any knowledge of it. Used to be a complaint would be filed with JAG. But they streamlined that maybe about ten years ago into an on-line complaint form.

Micheal Baden didn't do an independent autopsy on Floyd. Micheal Baden previously bloviated that Brown (Ferguson victim) was shot in the back (BULLSHIT!), & that OJ was innocent (BULLSHIT!).

The actual autopsy on Floyd stated that Floyd's death resulted from hypertension (going from memory) & other causes as well.

As a prosecutor, this would scare the living SHIT out of me! Doesn't mean it's insurmountable, but I hate the talk about what an easy & trifling assignment the prosecutor in MN has!

Do u see my sum of all fears? If the cause of death is in serious dispute by medical experts, then the prosecutor has a threshold issue that would choke Mister Ed & Secretariat both.

Of course you're right technically. Our biggest difference of opinion is that I don't think it's even slightly possible for Chauvin to get what used to be called a "Fair Trial" in Minnesota today. This country has already changed too much for that to happen.

and in a time when John Roberts can just write off the 1st Amendment like it was nothing, I don't see any higher courts coming to Chauvin's rescue. He's a political hot potato that everyone is going to want to have out of the way as soon as possible.

616 Well, finished my little welding project today. My stock of 7018AC rod was getting low, so I tried some other shit I had lying around. Found some unmarked 5/32 electrodes in a plastic bag that worked great. Easy to strike and hold an arc, and good hole-filling properties, too. Don't know what they are, but would definitely buy more.

Picked up my finished metal rack, and one of the feet fell off. No matter. I trundled back to where I planned to put it, and wrestled it into place anyway. Then slipped the loose foot under its leg. It's not going anywhere. Already have some stuff on it.

And today I drove a '63 Studebaker Lark for its last mile. Well, just shy of 4 miles in fact, but the last mile is the last mile, right? It drove just fine, too. Plenty of power (for a six), light easy steering, manual transmission shifted just fine. But roof rusty, floor rusty, fenders rusty, windshield cracked, headliner mouse-eaten, and the windows stuck? It's day is done; the sun of the parts are worth more than the whole. It will become an organ donor to keep several other vehicles alive. I did try selling it as a whole car last year, and had zero interest.

I'm not a lawyer, but I do admire this part:

"It is incumbent on the courts to ensure decisions are made according to the rule of law, not hysteria. Here, in addition to entering an order whose validity is highly suspect, the Court of Appeals majority took the extraordinary step of directing the trial court to take immediate action despite the fact that an application for leave had already been filed in our Court."

It is ridiculous to claim that he just dropped dead of other things. He died because a bad cop knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. Whether he had a nonlethal level of several drugs (and the levels were very nonlethal) and even if he had hypertension... hell even if he would have dropped dead naturally a minute after the time he actually died, he was still killed by Chauvin.

This is true even though he was not a good guy.

I've been through Love Field and seen that statue many times, it's a very good one. The problem comes from two things; first, Dallas proper, where Love Field is, is a majority-minority city now. Most of the anglos have moved out to the suburbs.
Second, this statue wasn't of a generic ranger, it was of one Specific Ranger, and some leftist looked up his history and found that he was involved in something that didn't play well to modern audiences. So they demanded that they take down the statue of HIM.

They shouldn't have done anything at all, but now they should at least replace it with a generic Texas Ranger. But I doubt they have the guts to do that.

Boy, is that ever the truth.

"On February 27, 1933, the German parliament (Reichstag)
building burned down. The Nazi leadership and its coalition partners
used the fire toclaimthat Communists were planning a violent uprising.
They claimed that emergency legislation was needed to prevent this. The
resulting act, commonly known as the Reichstag Fire Decree, abolished a
number of constitutional protections and paved the way for Nazi
dictatorship." [from the Holocaust Encyclopedia, online]

I don't know if an upright freezer will perform properly in a moving vehicle. It should, but I would not want to count on it. Also, an object that large and heavy could become a deadly projectile in the event of a crash, or even a panic stop.

I would take USNtakim's advice, and put the meat, along with cakes of dry ice, in a few coolers in the bed of the pickup. Most any decent-sized town will have at least one supermarket with a dry ice sales cooler.

643 My mom is 72 and has never even held a gun before, much less fired one. I'm thinking a .22 is a good way to get her started without scaring her off. We will of course be taking her to the range for practice.
Posted by: Jordan61 at June 06, 2020 01:44 AM (OzQGF)

She will probably have fun. Suggestion: let her start by shooting a .22 rifle. Zero recoil, and she can punch some nice holes in paper. Then let her try a .22 revolver. A .22 automatic pistol can be troublesome. I was shooting a friend's plastic .22 pistol, and it stovepiped several rounds. Apparently I was "limp-wristing" it, which meant the recoil energy went into moving the pistol around in my hand, instead of making the slide fully extract the spent cartridge. A revolver will be less likely to cause frustration.

646 Third the suggestion for dry ice, and emphasize USNtakim's point about adequate ventilation, and AOP's suggestion to keep it in the pickup bed.

It's far colder than regular ice, and will last a very long time if you have good coolers.

With respect to AOP's point about a freezer potentially becoming a deadly projectile, there's a famous story here about a bush pilot who was flying a piece of heavy equipment into a remote village. He hit the landing strip, braked, and heard the equipment rip loose and start sliding through the plane toward the back of his head.

Fortunately the landing strip was ice at that time of year, so the pilot thought fast and spun the plane around so it was going down the landing strip backward.

The machinery went out the back of the plane, tearing off the tail, rather than out the front, squashing the pilot like a bug.

The Texas Rangers have been made up of all races and have served the state with honor. They deserve better. And Dallas should hold their heads down in shame.

664 Well, my run and coke has been consumed, and I really don't want another one. More bird encounters today. I was putting tools away about 6:00 P.M., and I heard some faint "barking" sounds. Neighbor's dog, maybe? It got louder, and suddenly a big skein of Canada Geese flew over my place, maybe 40 of them, all honking away. Got real loud for a few seconds.

So, I clean up, put the dog in the truck, drive to town for groceries and mail. Come back, and there is a pair of mallard ducks scoping out a nesting site in my caragana hedge. I turn in the drive, and that spooks them into flight, but they only go about 20 yards, and land in the grass in the yard. I let Pogo out of the truck, and she puts the run on them, and off they go.

I don't mind ducks, but nesting in my hedge would not be smart for them. My dog, or the neighbors' dog, or foxes would get them, or the eggs, or the ducklings. Better they nest elsewhere.

Sorry to hear about your frustration today, ShopGirl. We especially want people close to us to share our values and the discord can make us miserable.

As for the statue it seems there should be a lot of places that would like to give it a new home. In public, not a museum.

670 I may be a Canadian but I read "Texas Ranger", the life of Frank Hamer (portrayed by Costner in The Highwaymen), Texas has a very wild history and those Rangers were good guys, heroes, Hamer fought hard against lynching, I think more than once he ran and hid in the brush and swamps at night with a black prisoner in tow, pursued by lynch mobs. There were a lot of gunfights along the border because the Mexican banditos crossing were always armed and always opened fire. That's where the revisionists find their fodder, the Rangers had to shoot first and stacked up a lot of bodies. Still, they have an honorable history, definitely good guys.

But he says nothing about the "American community."

Now, the flag and the anthem are symbols of the American community to which all of the smaller communities (supposedly) belong.

718 Morning!

We went to a local bar/ restaurant for lunch yesterday.
They have a large outside eating area. They had also put up a big tent for evenings and weekends.

No masks on the waitresses. Tables were properly social distanced so that Governor Spanky won't get upset. All food served were on plastic disposable plates and glasses. Mother Gaia was crying, but no on was listening.
Food, beer, life almost seem normal again.

Meanwhile the town of 40,000 next to me had the 2nd of 3 protests. From the pictures it appears it's mostly 20ish women that seemed concerned.
Of course the 3 block downtown was shutdown after many store just reopening on Monday. Many of the stores boarded up too, because you can't trust peaceful.

One more protest today. They postponed the farmers market because of it too.

NO MONEY FOR YOU!!

719 We had no electric from Wed just after noon until almost 6pm yesterday. 1 bad T-storm rolled through this area taki ng out random trees like they were blown up. If massive enough it blew them over roots and all. Thursday going to work the back roads I took had to have at least 5 spots with only 1 lane due to trees blocking them. One spot actually drove under a knocked down tree.

721 What really gobsmacked me was how this issue of supposed RACE cropped up (again) after the Floyd incident.

Horrible with out a doubt. But still, how did this incident even occur in a state run by progressive libs? Thought these libs were the champions of minorities?

How is it then that A LIB STATE with a LIB Govenor, LIB Mayor and all the LIB fixxen's in between has an incident so hideous happen on THEIR WATCH?

Media MSM is covering their asses well .....nothing to see here....move along....IT'S TRUMP AND HIS RACIST TWEETS!!!!


And the usual COMMIE PLAYERS have moved in big time.

They think they are going to turn this into .....A CAUSE


Think twice bitches.....no actually.... bring it, time to end this...lots of ground still left with which to bury the garbage.

A six pack of beer on an errand

A handful of loonies in my uncle's rusty...DATsun
A corporal is asking me, for my registration.
Darn the po-lice!
So I'm only ten years old
The store is only ninety kill-oh-mot-ers...on a logging road
I don't know why he's asking...for the registration
When he caught me with my sister teaching masturbation.

This was melted and mixed into the rhubarb. IIRC, it was more of a cobbler the way she did it normally.

The Woman was magic. You could give her a pair of 10 year old boots. She'd stare at them for a few minutes, get her tub of bacon grease out of the fridge, and cook them without ever measuring a darn thing- and it would be the best meal you ever had.

That is the one problem. Mammaw never wrote anything down. She knew it all by heart. Mom tried to get some of the recipes written, but there are a few I would like:

-I have no idea how she made scalloped potatoes. Potatoes obviously, but she used cheez whiz, regular cheese and black magic and made something of wonder.

-I have never, ever been able to figure out how she seasoned green beans. There is bacon, some onion, and something else.

-Fried sweet corn. Butter, sugar, salt. That was it (I watched.) Never have been able to get it right.

Leftwing White Women Are In Some Contest To Prove They're the Most Hysterical Lunatics On the Planet and No One Else Is Even Competing for Second-Place

They've started a hashtag... #GoBaldforBLM.

Because #VirtueSignalling isn't just for Twitter now.



Is this real?

Well, it looks like Emma Watson did #GoBaldforBLM. She's an hysterical white woman feminist, so she's just dying to show people how truly unwell she is.

4chan is claiming that they started this as a hoax to trick leftists into becoming skinheads...


...but they might be claiming that falsely, and might just be pretending they invented the idea in order to make all the people who shaved their heads feel like assholes.

66 You have to admire the genius of their strategy - first, lock young people up for a couple of months, and tell them they can't interact with each other in person.

Then, you tell them that they can go out and party, but only if they do so by supporting your movement.

Of course you are getting thousands of people at these demonstrations - it's the only allowable social outlet they've had for weeks.

Remember the meme?

Step 1: (Do something stupid)
Step 2: ...
Step 3: Profit!


Well, we have now found out what is Step 2...

Step 1: Loot, riot, pillage, vandalize, arson

Step 2: Major companies all across the country write public virtue-signaling missives acknowledging the reasons you set forth for your looting, rioting, pillaging, vandalizing & arson and pledge millions of dollars to the race-baiting organizations of your choosing

Step 3: Profit!


The Left now has a blueprint for how to keep their domestic terror business going indefinitely.

When you negotiate with terrorism, you get more of it. When you subsidize something, you get more of it.

It's the third horrific assault video by "protesters" I've seen so far - in the one case, I know the victim survived because he actually tweeted from the hospital. In the other other, not sure, though a *14-yr old white kid* was arrested for participating in the assault.

172 66 You have to admire the genius of their strategy - first, lock young people up for a couple of months, and tell them they can't interact with each other in person.

Of course you are getting thousands of people at these demonstrations - it's the only allowable social outlet they've had for weeks.

Here's a secret tho. It's NOT much of a sacrifice cause they know (if they don't already HAVE a bunch of wigs) that they can get a wig for anything they need one for. EXPENSIVE wigs that cost thousands.

Unlike the poor store clerk down the street who idolizes these maniacs and cuts her hair. She probably can't afford a polyvinyl wig at 29.99.

When I was out on my walking trail, I saw not one but two young (16-18ish) ladies about 30 minutes apart with bald heads. First time one was with a friend with long blonde hair, I assumed possible chemo - or perhaps donating? Second time was a girl with her family, and the odd hit.



It wasn't until I saw the twitter thing it clicked. So I'm more than inclined to believe it since 2 high-school or college freshman age indoctrinates in the SF Bay Area seems absolutely on target. If I'm out and about this weekend and see one more I'll know for sure.

You would like to think they have been mugged by reality. But that is probably not true.

The logical explanation, considering the sources they watch and trust, is they are scared of these White Supremacists running rampant protesting against a black man being killed at the hands of a white racist cop.

Today I got an email from an artist I bought some stuff from. He wanted to point out that today if you buy something from Bandcamp, then the company waives all fees and everything goes to the artist.

Cool!

...Then he says, "I don't want you to buy anything of mine. Buy something from one of these following black artists."

Not cool.

You have to roll around in the woke culture mud in order to understand. It's something about white women being privileged with straight, light colored hair. So obviously to the thought-thugs they have to make amends. Or something.

361 Tucker has a good point - this is not just political, this is a new deranged Religion aimed at creating a Race War. It is completely nihilistic, and aimed at nothing but destruction.

In fact, this was evident a long time ago, like in the late 18th century in France. Tucker is good to point it out but our side really should have seen it coming.

362 I had a 5 year old black kid point a finger gun at me today. I told him 'have a nice day'. As I turned to leave he looked at the woman he was with and said 'what he say?' I turned and told him ' I said have a nice day. You expected me to say don't point your finger at me.' His eyes got big. I then looked at the woman he was with and him and said 'Don't point your finger at me.' I know he was disrespecting the badge like some dumbass taught him. What is wrong with parents today?

372 I'm serious... rich white chicks will do anything - anything - to be accepted by poor people and minorities, and trannies, or the disabled, or any other group their shows tell them to have misplaced guilt about.

It's the same reason why they refuse to use anything besides [today's trendy health-food oil] to fry their quinoa while they suck down a gallon of boxed chardonnay every day.

Put a good-looking, well dressed black man with a white sounding patois and one arm on a daytime talk show. Have him tell them they should stick their hands in dispose-alls to show solidarity with Differently Abled Black Folks Whose Lives Totes Matter To Thirty -Something Rich White Chicks With No Purpose To Their Own Empty Lives.

You'll see at least a few walking around with bloody stumps the next day.

Very unreliable as to expansion. Plus the grooves make it wobble in flight and then miss.

Of course you should be within the normal gunfight/hit range of less than 10 ft so that might not matter.

Better to use hollow points then fill the hollows with garlic or rat shit.
