TheJamesMadison will be along later with the movie thread. This week, he'll be sub-letting (or is it sub-sub-letting?) the thread out to MP4, whose movie review of an old classic will be getting us into the spirit of Halloween early.

As always, the chess/dress pr0n thread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.



Beginner Problem - White To Play (Chess #3544)

Yeah, I know this position looks kind of weird. How did White's king get all the way up there behind the black pawns? I didn't notice this until it was too late to pick a better probem.

Goal: White can force mate in 2 moves
Hint: One of those knights is kind of in the way

Mildly amusing. Sort of NSFW for language. (h/t 'MesterJeger')'



Intermediate Problem - Black To Play (1053)

Goal: Black can force mate in 6 moves
Hint: Draw White's king even further out by sac'ing a piece


20191019 - Problem 2.jpg
1rb1k1nr/p1qpppbp/6p1/8/2N1P3/2PK1BN1/P2P1PPP/R1BQ3R b k - 0 1



Advanced Problem - White To Play (1054)

How does White play this position? Again, once you think you've found a good first move for White, try to find Black's best defense.

Hint: Find a way to quickly bring the rook into play

Problem solutions will be posted as an update later on.

___________

Note: that cryptic line of letters and numbers you see underneath each board diagram is a representation of the position in what is known as "Forsyth-Edwards Notation", or F.E.N. It's actually readable by humans. Most computer applications nowadays can read FEN, so those of you who may want to study the position, you can copy the line of FEN and paste into your chess app and it should automatically recreate the position on its display board. Or, Windows users can just "triple click" on it and the entire line will be highlighted so you can copy and paste it into your chess app.

___________

So that about wraps it up for this week. Chess thread tips, suggestions, bribes, rumors, threats, and insults may be sent to my yahoo address: OregonMuse little-a-in-a-circle yahoo dott com.

42 Today Melania is shown wearing a $5,500 sequined Erdem cocktail dress worn at NYE party in Mar-a-lago 2018.

Clusters of embroidered flowers are scattered throughout the forties-inspired silhouette.

Though Erdem released the dress with a periwinkle-color belt, Melania removed it for the New Year's Eve party at Mar-a-Lago.

The resulting look, then, was more eighties than its original iteration.

She finished the look off with pointed-toe stilettos in a matching shade of pink.

Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at October 19, 2019 05:51 PM (aKsyK)

45 Advanced Problem.

1. Bg5 Qxg5
2. Rf1+ any (either Qf6 or Nf6 ... or Qf5)
3. Qe7#

So black needs to try something else on move 1.

1. Bg5 Nf6
2. Qe6 Qe8
3. Qxf6+ gxf6
4. Bh6#

Black can give away the B on b7 to make this one move longer.

It seems to me that any other move for black leaves him open to Rf1+ ... except Qf6 so ...

1. Bg5 Qf6
2. Bxf6 Nc6 ( ... Nxf6 3. Qe6 any 4. Qf7#).
3. Qe6 Ne8 (or Qf7#)
4. Qe7#

I think that covers everything.

Why do dogs live such a short time? A six year old explains.

The little boy seemed to accept Belker’s transition without any difficulty or confusion. We sat together for a while after Belker’s Death, wondering aloud about the sad fact that dogs’ lives are shorter than human lives. Shane, who had been listening quietly, piped up, ”I know why.”

Startled, we all turned to him. What came out of his mouth next stunned me. I’d never heard a more comforting explanation. It has changed the way I try and live.

He said, ”People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life — like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right?” The six-year-old continued,

”Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay for as long as we do.”


***


One hell of a happy ending.

A 14-year-old Fox Terrier was reunited with her owner on Friday after she went missing 12 years ago from Florida and was found Tuesday over 1,000 miles away in Pennsylvania shivering under a shed.

Humane Animal Rescue in Pittsburgh facilitated the reunion of the dog named Duchess with her owner Katheryn Strang.

Levon and the great toilet paper heist.jpg

Well, lookee here! Levon the Terrible is a year old. 13 months now actually. He is just a big lovable goof, (large for an English Setter at this age) but has to be the weirdest dog we have ever had. When he awakes in the morning (often too early) he makes a continuous noise like an air raid siren until he is let out of his crate. A couple months back, we made the mistake of leaving him the van with 48 rolls of toilet paper. We hope he grows out of it. Hard to stay mad at this face though. -Thomas

Even when they are terrors, nothing is better than a Setter. OK, I'm biased. What a beautiful trouble maker. Thanks for sharing.

Greetings once again,

Our canine overlord, The Countess Etta Hildegaard von Dusseldorf, Ruler of Upper Schnauzernia, was featured several months ago and in the interim, we have further complicated our lives by introducing 'the twins' to the Royal Menagerie.

These two brothers are The Baron Wilhelm Reinhardt von Meowsensturm, Ruler of Middle Felinenbrau (the grey and white short-hair) and The Archduke Johann Heinrich von Schwartzenschnitzel, Ruler of Lower Raubkatzenbruk (the black fur ball).

Neither lacks for attention or love from our daughters and both are infinitely patient with the questionable actions of their Relentlessly Adorable Toddler Subject.

Long may their odoriforous litter box activities bless this kingdom! - Brian

These photos are precious. Every child should have a pet in their life, you have provided in an abundance. Thanks so much for sharing your family with us today.

Lurker, here, when I post, it’s as “Reine”.

I absolutely love the pet thread, and I’ve sent in photos of my pets. These two belong to my daughter, and they are watching as Le Roi fixes a plate of food. What you see here is pure, unadulterated HOPE that a scrap will come their way. Alas, it was not to be. The light colored pup on the right is Sam, about 9 years old with a few age-related issues creeping in. He’s been with my daughter since her college days and she could not have asked for a more loyal and protective buddy. The black pup on the left is Rosie, a foundling, about a year old. She is a pit bull, and as best we have been able to determine, she was abandoned after having a litter of puppies. We are thankful she seems not to have been used as a bait dog; she is as sweet a dog as it’s possible to be. She had to be treated for an infection and for heartworms, but it’s all behind us now and she is healthy.

So you have a pair of barkkuum cleaners, how adorable!!!! It appears that Sam and Rosie are best buds as well as kitchen supervisors. We are happy to hear that you love the Pet Thread. Thank you.

Clipper.jpg

Hi Ace:
Recreant here. I've previously shared pictures and described the antics of Saki, our rice wine kitteh. This is Clipper. She and her brother came to our place this past April. Her left ear shows that she was a feral cat who was neutered (hence the name Clipper, duh). A friend who does TNR work and fosters abandoned kittens told us its not unusual for a feral cat to become domesticated, if they're caught while young or if they find a home where they're fed, cuddled and have a warm, dry place to sleep. Every feral cat has an ancestor who was domesticated. Cats are hard wired to be our companions, even though they can be standoffish at times.

The Horde have big hearts and it was quite obvious that you Recreant. Cute kitteh, here's hoping for a long and happy life as a lap cat. Thanks for sharing.

This is Whiskey. We got him at the rescue society. We were told he was around eighteen months old. He seems to be part chow. He's very affable. He goes nuts, running in circles around the yard -- run, run, run, LEEEEEAAAAP!

He loves his squeaky toys, and he enjoys dropping them at my feet so I'll toss them for him to chase. When he's done with that game, he'll pile them all in one place and guard them. In the photo, he's lying on his hoard: you can see the dragon and part of the goose. He's got a plushy bone, a duck, and an amorphous plushy thing underneath him. He also really enjoys disemboweling the toys. The goose, the duck, and the dragon have long since gone to that squeaky toy heaven...

From long time lurker, Lee Also.


Whisky sure has puppy eyes. He sure seems like a happy puppeh. We don't think that he has enough toys. You probably should get him some more. We appreciate your submission.

MH -
Mrs. OCiS and I sent to Acadia National Park a couple weekends ago with our Flat-coat Retriever mix Fenway. This was taken around Ship Harbor which is on the southeastern portion of Mount Desert Island. As you can see, she had an opportunity to enjoy the ocean water here. Fenway, even at 9 years old, absolutely loves climbing on rocks and boulders. Wish my knees and ankles did.

For dog lovers out there, Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are VERY dog friendly. We stayed in a cabin at a campground that allows dogs. Many restaurants in Bar Harbor allow you to eat outside and have your (well behaved) dog at your side. The public shuttles that transport you from campgrounds to inside the park also allow dogs. The lakes and ponds within the national park don't allow dogs to swim in them as they are a public water supply. So off to the beach trails like we did.

There is lots of hiking trails for all abilities. Many many miles of carriage trails which is basically crushed stone roads that are great for bicycling, horseback riding, and walking. The Rockefeller family purchased over 1,000 acres that abuts Acadia National Park. Many trails are cross from one to the other. Best part is the Rockefeller family will allow you to walk your dog off leash on their land. Once you are back on Acadia National Park, you have to leash up.

If any 'rons want more info on Acadia, recommendations for accomodations, etc., feel free to email me at ourcountryisscrewed at the gmail dot com.

Thanks MH for keeping this much anticipated weekend post alive on Ace of Spades.
--Our Country is Screwed

OCIS, I appreciate your kind words. Wow, what a gorgeous setting for Fenway's
photo. Acadia National Park sounds like a beautiful place. And a place you love. Awesome.

8 Cats are interesting, to be domesticated they had to break from being solitary hunters to being sociable and be positive towards humans. There are only two locuses of domestication, being Egypt and the near East, though there is some limited admixture in Europe.

Cats are hard to come by in the archeological record, since ill cats tend to wander off and hide to die. and there is not a lot of meat on them for them to be found in middens.

Dogs were routinely sacrificed up through the late Roman times, often being buried under threshholds and new constructions, but cats usually were not. In Egypt they were mummified, but a review of the mummies show that mostly the cats used were early adult stage, which indicates that the cats were raised by the temples specifically for mummifying.
In England during the late medieval and early enlightenment dried cats were placed posed over door frames inside walls, presumably to guard the house against mice and bad spirits and witches. However, outside of that, I have heard zoo-paleontologists say that it is hard to find early cat remains during domestication.

11 I have a 9 year old dog. For the first 8.5 years of its life it didn't give a shit about the vacuum. Then about 6 months ago out of the blue it started hating the vacuum with a passion I had not seen before.

And now every time I vacuum, I have to put him away lest he attack the thing.

Did you get a different vacuum?

Odd thing with Ajax, he went vicious when I had a stand up vacuum. Snarling, attaching, etc. However a Roomba, he completely ignores almost to the point of it not existing.

I have two theories:

One, there is a frequency to some vacuum cleaners that drives them crazy that we cannot hear.

Two, it is some weird dominance/protection thing when we are holding/using the vacuum.

Or both, or something else entirely that I am not thinking of.

27 Our bulldog pups, 8 months old now, have been getting really bad at pulling hard on the leash when walking, and they are big enough that it's hard for me to control them. They are just bad! when taking a walk.

Today, I tried walking them separately while hubby stayed home with the one not walking, and they were like different dogs! Stayed with me, trotted when I let them run, and didn't pull at all.

They must be competitive and trying to outdo each other, get out in front of the other, prove that they can terrorize every cat in every alley, etc. Looks like it will be separate walks from now on.

29 Has anyone ever had a cat suddenly start making a kind of dry heave/gag motion, but make no noise?

One of my semi ferals is running to her dish to eat, and she'll lick up the liquid, but then she starts making a kind of thrusting motion with her head like she's trying to thrown up. Then she wanders a few steps away from the dish, and the motions continue for a second. She did once bring up a bit of clear saliva looking liquid, like they do when they eat grass.

I'd say it was just a hairball, but there is absolutely no noise and it isn't near that violent, so to say, of a reaction. It's almost as if she has an acid reflux kind of thing where bile might be coming up when she leans in to eat?

42 Cat observations:

1) If you provide a clean place for the cat to pee in (aka a Litter Box), the cat will pee and poo there rather than another place. Cats peeing in undesired places usually are the result of litter box neglect.
2) Cats will try to barf up if they have a hair ball or other obstruction. They will eat grass (if they have grass) in order to help them do this. Some oily food helps, there are ointments that taste like fish, they can help.

Wonderful pets today, thanks for the thread!

50 Cats are very prone to urinary tract infection.
They prefer to drink running water.
Static water in a bowl, they will drink it only after the UTI infection, and dehydration, possible kidney damage, have occurred.
Buy a drinking fountain with running water for your cats. They will drink more often and have fewer UTI issues.
The downside of the fountain, it make a trickling sound, which means when I hear it, I need to pee.

52 I have a question for everyone. Our Weimaraner Smokey is 12. That's quite old for a dog but he has been fairly healthy his entire life. We think he has suddenly gone blind. On Tuesday he was acting strangely, running into the couch, walking into doors. Being in the RV he probably has things memorized but he is terrified of going up and down the steps. We help him and my husband will pick him up if he has to. Could this happen suddenly? He seems fine otherwise.

62 More advice for litter boxes.
For every cat you own, you should have that number of litter boxes + 1, for instances in which you fall behind on the upkeep.
I have 2 cats, therefore 3 litter boxes.
Nature's Miracle makes good ones made of recycled paper, when they get too rank, just throw them out and replace.

Saturday Gardening Thread, October 19 [KT]

acadi.JPG

Hello, Gardeners, Putterers and those who just like to observe their handiwork! It's getting fall-ish where I am. How about where you are? Today, we've got a few landscapes as we move into fall. There are still a few critters out there, too. Expecting some more fall foliage photos to come in from The Horde. Love the landscape above from Larro. It's from Bar Harbor, Acadia National Park.

Landscapes

This is a photo of a professional landscape, taken by The Invisible Hand during the summer. A Japanese garden. Lovely. We're all pulling for you, by the way.

This photo is from the backyard of Admirale's Mate. Looks relaxing. The daylilies fit the setting.

Plant/Insect Identification Challenge

Two vines/scramblers and an insect today. Remember Hank Curmudgeon's excellent Moron's Guide To Identifying Insects last week for the butterfly.

From Le Vieux Garde. Down by the lake, near a fig tree. Photos were taken a while ago. Maybe we can get him to describe the seed heads that developed from the flowers now.

Monarch Butterflies are going south

Monarchs, 2019

Numbers are rebounding some. Good news. Have you seen any this year?

Other Critters

Weasel sent in this great photo of a Tractor Spider! Notice the color coordination. I asked if the web was nice and orderly. He said,

Yes, but it seemed a lot thicker right under the spider.

tractrspid.JPG

Recognize that spider?

I'm not sure I can recommend a mouse village for the average gardener. But certain mice are kind of cute.

Simon Dell, a wildlife photographer from Sheffield, United Kingdom, was taking pictures of birds in his garden, when he spotted a cute little house mouse standing on the grassy ground. He knew he couldn't miss the opportunity, so he came up with the brightest idea. With the intent of protecting the mouse from neighboring cats, and providing wonderful backdrops for his new subjects, Simon fashioned a house for the small mouse, that he named George. He built him a nice and functional house made from piles of logs, old fruits, and vegetables. It didn't take long for George to notice the lovely house Simon made, and he was more than happy to move there with his fellow mice That Simon named Mildred and Mini. Take a look at Simon's wonderful photographs of George and his little family, while having the time of their lives in their cozy, new home.

Halloween approaches

Today, a couple more photos of that remarkable corpse flower sent in by Moron Robbie,

Not only smells like a corpse, kind of starts to look like it could accompany a corpse.

Moron Robbie didn't mention seeing this guy at the botanical garden:

Got any other garden-related costume ideas?

The Edible Garden

We have been discussing paste tomatoes in the comments. I wish they would think of another name for "paste tomatoes". Anyway, 40 miles north sent in this:

Those San Marzano tomato vines in the picture below have produced a lot of great tomatos. However, those two vines as well as another one were stripped of nearly every leaf by two tomato worms. However, the two caterpillars responsible for all the damage will never become hawk moths. I feel better now.

san marzan.jpg

Got a tomato recipe to share?

Looking for a vacation idea? You can sign on for tours to go foraging in Sweden. Especially for mushrooms and berries.

The Right of Public Access . . . is a unique principle, dating back to the Middle Ages and protected by law, which allows everyone to roam pretty much anywhere in the countryside (except for private residences, cultivated land or within 70 meters of a house). Whether you fancy kayaking or swimming in a lake, fishing on the coast, camping in a beautiful meadow or foraging in the forest, being at one with nature is positively encouraged. The only caveats? Don't disturb and don't destroy.

"According to the government, only four percent of all berries in Sweden are picked each year," says Marcus Eldh, founder of WildSweden, who often incorporates foraging into his wildlife adventure tours. One of the most abundant - and packed with antioxidants - is the Nordic blueberry (or bilberry), which can be found on low-to-the-ground shrubs that grow everywhere from the roadside to deep in the forest. Another staple of the Swedish diet - and also known for their health benefits - are arctic cloudberries (similar to raspberries but smaller and orange) and lingonberries (often served up alongside meatballs), both of which are ripe for picking during the summer.

Gardens of The Horde

40 Miles North also sent in this lovely photo of a Phoenicia Azalea:

6 What lovely landscapes, flowers, yards etc. I am making an effort to trim dead branches and take out at least the smaller dead trees in the yard. I'd like to get the large dead elms down but I probably need to hire a pro or else just continue as we have been and hope that they don't take out vehicles or hit the roof when the wind eventually knocks them down.

I don't think so. I only responded so fast because I've saw one before and remember looking it up before" I thought it was called an Orange Gerden Spider, but I according to wikipedia its more commonly called a Yellow Garden Spider, which makes more sense as oranges don't grow anywhere around here.

21 Does anyone know, or have an opinion about whether blueberries grown in the north are more flavorful?

My grandmother grew up as a Quebec farm girl and she told me they used a lot of blueberries. She continued that while raising a big family in central Mass. I remember how good they were when we visited.

This is from an ancient memory so it might just be nostalgia and there is no one left from her generation or our parent's.

The rabbiteye blueberries that grow in more southerly states are a different species than the ones that grow further north. There has been some breeding work on the rabbiteyes in the last few decades, and I think the hybrids are probably better than most of the wild ones.

25 so many swallowtails, idk that one, kinda like Baird's Swallowtail, maybe not quite. Monarchs seem to have gone from here a couple weeks ago ... fall color just starting in the hard maples.

Love the well kept back yard water features ... mice can be cute, but I spent part of the morning trying to seal up their pathways into my base cabinets in the kitchen. They say a hole the width of a pencil can let them get in. Cats and black snakes like them ... field mice feed a lot of animals, so they are useful in the food chain I guess.

cheers to the growers ...

Bizarre as it sounds, I actually feed the black snakes under our concrete pad near the driveway chicken eggs. Their presence is benign to us personally but they are deadly to mice and field rat nests.

I have had to repair and clean up so much damage to our vehicles from these critters than I am glad to contract it out for a few chicken eggs a month, hahaha.

35 We finally got the very last of the cherry tomatoes a few days ago. I'm kinda glad it's over since the plants look completely used up and I felt guilty they were still trying to produce.

The thyme we didn't pick seemed to die or at least turned brown. We dried a lot of it this year. But moving the old growth aside, we saw fresh plants coming up. Pretty damn tough stuff, apparently.

Deer mice are colored like that, but they transmit
Lyme Disease through ticks to humans.

Hantavirus is transmitted by urine from
Peromyscus maniculatus, the pinyon mouse.
Also brown-gray over white.

43 When we lived in NJ back in the last century, my 2 preschool daughters and I would start scouting the woodsy area behind our house for wild blueberries as soon as it warmed up. We had to get them before the birds could when they ripened. Since we nibbled as we picked, it took awhile to collect enough for baking yummy things. They weren't very big but they certainly were good.

45 W seldom have mice in the house and they aren't much of a problem outside. We have well fed hawks and owls in the area. But we've been in the house for 35 years and a couple of times the field mice were everywhere. Maybe they have population explosions every now and then, like lemmings. Once that phase is over, they mostly disappear.

61 From Idaho's Treasure Valley: I would have been here sooner, but we had a power glitch just before noon, then the power went out an hour later, and stayed down for 2 hours. We did have some rain at 8 AM, various wind gusts, and even a short band of sleet, but I don't know what the direct cause of the outage was. I *do* know we only got part of today's project finished - we started making apple pie filling, for canning, from the probably-Jonathans we collected.

The probably-Jonathan tree never has many apples, but this year it has a bunch of reasonably sized ones, that will do well in the peeler-corer gizmo. Husband had prepared a bunch of apples, we were getting all the ingredients and equipment out - and down goes the power. Oh, poo. Well, tomorrow's not booked, so tomorrow it is - we can probably also get started on applesauce, with the smaller Jonathans and some of the Golden Delicious. Once we decide we have enough applesauce, the rest become cider.

Under garden-deconstruction: so far, I've torn out the poblano plants, Roma tomato plants, green bush beans, and basil from raised beds. Some of the paddock's corn stalks have gone to people who wanted porch decorations. (As for me, I bought 2 mid-size/small pumpkins from a local place, and put a bunch of my immature butternut squash next to them - might as well get some use out of the inedible ones.) There's still zucchini plants in a raised bed, plus the tomatoes and green beans in the paddock, to tear out.

It's good we did a bunch of leaf raking yesterday, even if the areas we cleared are covered with leaves again, after all the wind gusts. We shredded crabapple, linden, and some maple leaves, and put that in the leaf compost bin. I raked up 4 bags of Annoying Sycamore leaves, which I had to put on the porch so they didn't get soaked or blow around.

As I sit by the front window, I'm watching leaves blow south down the street - the neighborhood properties seem to share leaves, so you never do know where the leaves you're raking actually originated...

An off-topic item of quirky interest - I was following my husband down a gym hallway this week, when a man nearby calls out "Appleseed!" I was wearing my Project Appleseed T-shirt - so, I stopped to talk with him. Turns out he recognized my husband walking by, and my T-shirt gave him the context. We knew each other from Project Appleseed events in Castro Valley, CA - 700 miles from here, and many years ago! It constantly amazes me how often I meet a fellow Rifleman while wearing Appleseed T-shirts! (I met one in Grand Island, Nebraska, this summer at the 4-H National Shooting Sports Championship.) Has anyone else been to a Project Appleseed event, and are there any other Riflemen here?

Her Majesty? [KT]

Ship-in-the-Bay.jpg

San Francisco Waterfront, 1851

Time for an Empress? Or Something?

Well, yesterday we learned that Hillary Clinton believes that Donald Trump plans to stay in office forever, that she has secret information that Tulsi Gabbard and Jill Stein are Russian assets and that ten year olds are responsible for her election loss. For some reason, after I learned all this, Emperor Norton, who reigned for 20 years in San Francisco, popped into my head.

At age 41, three years after losing everything, Norton christened himself Emperor of the United States. When France's Napoleon III invaded Mexico in 1861, Norton added "Protector of Mexico" to his imperial title.

It's been about three years since Hillary lost the Big One. Is it time for a novel new occupation for her?

Emperor Norton's life history at the link above is interesting. The NPR-type progressive posturing is a little annoying, but perhaps Norton IS the ideal symbol of San Francisco in some ways.

Not much is known about Emperor Norton's early life, according to John Lumea, president of the Emperor's Bridge Campaign, which focuses on researching Norton's life and sharing it with the public.

Here's what we do know.

Emperor Norton was born Joshua Abraham Norton in 1818 to Jewish parents in present-day London. At age 2, he moved with his parents to South Africa, where his dad set up a successful ship supplies business.

After some reversals in fortune and after becoming Emperor by simply publishing a declaration in a newspaper, Norton lived an active life in San Francisco:

For lunch, Norton could go to almost any tavern in town and for the price of a drink, no more than 25 cents, get access to a full lunch spread of salmon, roast beef, tomatoes and more.

"He really makes himself part of the life of the city," Lumea says. "He goes to political meetings. He goes to the theater. He goes to the saloons. He makes himself a public presence. He's in the streets."

Could Hillary find a little waterfront somewhere to live a life kind of like this? Maybe with an ankle monitor? The local police could be ordered to salute her when she passed. Perhaps the mayor could order that people call her "your majesty" (or another preferred pronoun), on pain of a large fine. Preferred pronouns are important.

Emperor Norton sometimes sounded more rational than Hillary sounded yesterday. Not always, though.

Many of the "decrees" attributed to Norton I were fakes; written in jest by newspaper editors at the time for amusement, or for political purposes.

Fake news is not new!

Those "decrees" listed here were, we believe, actually issued by Norton.

A few of Norton's decrees:


  • July 16, 1860 - Decree from Norton I dissolved the United States of America.

  • October 1, 1860 - Decree from Norton I barred Congress from meeting in Washington, D.C.

  • August 12. 1869 - Decree from Norton I dissolved and abolished the Democratic and Republican parties because of party strife now existing within

  • December 16, 1869 - Decree by Norton I demanded that Sacramento clean its muddy streets and place gaslights on streets leading to the capitol.

  • March 23, 1872 - Decree by Norton I that a suspension bridge be built as soon as convenient between Oakland Point and Goat Island, and then on to San Francisco.

Best update on Hillary's interview yesterday?

This made the sidebar, too. Can you find a better one?

Evan McMullin believes Hillary. Tulsi Gabbard is working with the Russians.

Light Weekend Reading and Viewing

A few links I have saved from Powerline:

Punctuation

Scott Johnson was prompted to study punctuation when he read, for fun, an essay by Montaigne and learned that the original didn't even have paragraph separations. Here is the secret history of the exclamation point. And part 2.

Seems appropriate to the times. I think some people in Montaigne's day must have had powers of concentration superior to ours. The long sentences common in the 19th century can sometimes be a challenge to me. What would I do without paragraphs?

Climate

A 12-minute video by Tony Heller on junk climate science.

Steven Hayward's Green Weenies from the end of September. Heh.

Steven Hayward also reports that The Economist published a surprisingly good piece on the limitations of computer climate modeling.

Music

Libertango. Improvisation.

We have seen one of these sisters playing before. The other was turning pages.

Hope you have a good weekend!

10 Even though I'm deeply upset about Trump's coarse language, don't bother me making a casual reference to lynching Democrats.

That's
totally different because while tweets are literally a hate crime, it's
common for committed Republicans like ourselves to may references to
hanging our political opponents like you-know-who.

I can say that here because we're sophisticated people, who don't use schoolyard taunts or anything.

Based on the 16 results, he could conceivably flip NV, NH, ME and MN.

But he also won states by a razor thin margin.

To be consistent we must also say they could flip.

33 Trump won in 2016 despite being a political novice with no record, with 3 different campaign managers and half the resources Hillary had. He was also up against Obama's intel community as well as several foreign governments.

In 2020 he has a solid record of accomplishment including the best economy in 50 years, record low unemployment across the board, ending overseas wars and an enormous campaign war chest with a field organization that has been under construction since 2018. In Minnesota, he had one part time field staffer in 2016. He already has 20 full time staff in MN and is hiring more. And that's in a state he lost. Trump uses his rallies to not only pump up his supporters but as a very strategic tool to identify voters by state. It's a very sophisticated plan. And he has the power of incumbency behind him.

The Democrats are fielding a team that excites nobody. The DNC is desperately behind in the cash war and hasn't recovered from what Obama and Hillary did to screw it up. And starting very soon the drip drip drip of what they did in 2016 to try and screw Trump and his supporters will start to leak out and it will go right through next election.

Trump is getting ready for a serious schlonging.

>>The prosecutor conducting the review, Connecticut U.S. Attorney John Durham, has expressed his intent to interview a number of current and former intelligence officials involved in examining Russia's effort to interfere in the 2016 presidential election, including former CIA Director John Brennan and former director of national intelligence James Clapper, Brennan told NBC News.

>>Durham has also requested to talk to CIA analysts involved in the intelligence assessment of Russia's activities, prompting some of them to hire lawyers, according to three former CIA officials familiar with the matter. And there is tension between the CIA and the Justice Department over what classified documents Durham can examine, two people familiar with the matter said.

>>With Barr's approval, Durham has expanded his staff and the timeframe under scrutiny, according to a law enforcement official directly familiar with the matter. And he is now looking into conduct past Donald Trump's inauguration in January 2017, a Trump administration official said.

TWO: .. the markets ... we are running on unlimited government intervention and still with the incredibly low interest rates. A silent QE effort may be underway, and markets are vulnerable for many reasons. The decoupling from China dependence (cheap production of our digital toys and various crap) may get some hiccups ...

The main problem in the end is massive voter fraud by the Dims.

They always cheat but this time they will cheat everywhere and at every level.

I expect a kind Cloward-Piven Event of Cheating, where the system is simply overwhelmed and fails because of all the fraud everywhere.

So, Trump and his allies and the GOP(i know, I know) will need to be at the top aof their game and proactive.

The Democrat Party is now a Maoist party in design and in strategic planning.

They will want a wipeout victory taking both House of Congress and the Presidency, so they can instantly impose their horrible policies.

I'm guessing to do that they'll need upwards of 10% vote fraud in some areas.

Normally, that would be impossibly obvious, but they'll fight it in the courts.

I hope it is a Trump landslide. That's the only way he4 can get a clear uncontested win against these turds.

true, in conservative communities and blogs like AoS. But would that blowback penetrate to the broader low info public, when the normal communications don't cover it, and deny it? idk, probably. But imo they were sure Hillary would win, so they didn't use all their more criminal/aggressive tactics that could come to play if they think it might work ... the DeepState is facing existential threat (or so we like to believe).


hopefully you are right ... but Twitter has started censoring Trump already ... and many of their devices are secretive ... maybe someone shares a Trump thing with their 500 FB friends, only ten of them even see it. But a pro-Dem post by someone else ... all 500 of their friends see it. idk ... but it works like that with Google searches.

127 Only, and mean only thing that worries me on the 2020 election is the corrupt ways the Democrats will put up, illegals, vote harvesting, intimidation at urban polls, people long dead voting, and the 2 week later the Democrats get to find votes.
Anything on the up and up it's going to be hard for them to win especially with these weak candidates.

134 2a. houston street is pronounced "how-ston" because it was named for one william houstoun, a delegate to the constitutional congress from georgia who was married to mary bayard, daughter of nicholas bayard, who owned the land in that district of nyc. houstoun was pronounced "how-ston", and while the spelling changes to houston over the years, the pronunciation stayed the same, which is the opposite of what usually happens.

Interesting that you should use the term "car wash", since that is the Brazilian term for the investigation into long time money laundering of funds paid as kickbacks from Petrobras to various engineering firms , the primary is a Brazilian multinational called Odebrecht. It was one of the reason the Brazilian workers party lost in the polls, and ex president Lula da Silva wound up being convicted of accepting illegal pmts whatever they might be called.

The one that gets to me is Congresswoman Jackie Speier.

She was shot 5 times, and laid on the tarmac bleeding for nearly 24 hours before any help arrived.

And after her fellow lefty cult commies slaughtered her lefty boss and lefty co-workers, and filled her lefty self with Kalashnikov rounds she STILL is a lefty true believer.

Well, besides having their own branch of Orthodoxy and that stuff with the Turks, they don't really end up on the radar.

Speaking of Stalin, his go to henchman was an Armenian-- guy named Simon TerPetrossian, aka "Kamo". Charismatic ladies man and absolute psychopath. After the Bolshies came to power he joined the secret police... Who soon fired him for being *too much* of a bloodthirsty maniac. Seriously, read Montfiore's "Young Stalin", you couldn't make this guy up.

He moved back home and started writing his memoirs in the early 1920s. Then one night, he was riding his bicycle home and was-- "accidentally"-- run over and killed by a truck.

205 > The sad thing is that McGovern was a truly remarkable man in so many respects, a war hero being only one of them.

Indeed, it's hardly fair to compare him with Mutt Romney, who has no honor of any kind.

The parallels with 1972 are striking. The Dems started out with a field of 15 candidates, many of whom were outright whackjobs, and arrived at the convention with six still standing.

Well, if all else is equal (which it probably isn't) 2 for 1 means that each pair costs 50% of full price, while 3 for 2 means that each costs 66.666...% of full price, making 2 for 1 a better deal.

Are these pants that you have bought before and are certain they will meet your needs?

Are these pants frequently on sale?

What are we actually talking about in round numbers in terms of "credits" and what is out of your pocket?

Via Free Beacon:

Former governor John Kasich (R., Ohio), a legendary asshole even by modern political standards, said Friday that he has been pushed "across the Rubicon," and now thinks President Donald Trump should be impeached.

"The issue of impeachment is really big to me," Kasich said. "I say it with great sadness. This is not something that I really wanted to do."

However, Kasich said, the president's behavior with respect to Ukraine "cannot be tolerated."

I was reading in the rapid transit and two ambulance chasers sat behind me and started talking about the election results and one of them said he was encouraged by how many Massholes voted for McGovern.

226 I missed the kinda-discussion of Armenians, but actually spent a fair amount of time there in the immediate post-Soviet period. Interesting place. At that time, not much power [Azerbaijan was source of oil and gas - either actual source or pipeline passed through there], so cities were dark at night, kind of eerie, and water was "on" a few hours a day. Generally there in summer/fall, so missed the adventure of winter [elevations similar to Denver] without energy.


Armenia has long had a special tie to Russia, driven partly by being orthodox Christians with 2 borders with Islamic countries.


Current times, it's one "traditional friend" to the south - Turkey, one active/though sleepy and weak enemy to the east - Azerbaijan - and the crazy f***ing Georgians down the hill to the west [Christian, but nutso].


Also, Armenians were an elite minority in the Soviet system, generally not limited in their rise, even in the political system [Mikoyan], unlike many [Jooos].

229 opI think "asset" doesn't really capture things WRT McMuffin. In what way is he of any actual value to anyone? "Operative" or "tool" might be more on the mark.


But "deep state" much too often seems to be imagined as an organization, vs. what it is - a mix of mindset and self-interest, in key cases combined with a lack of public service ethics. At least it's often discussed that way, which is a bit dumbed-down/medieval villagers with torches, and not very accurate.


In Nixon's time, I recall even the press discussing his administration's fight with the "permanent government" - basically the same thing. This problem is not even remotely "new".


Not an academic issue. The problem of a pernicious mindset mixed with lack of public service mentality is not a question of 1 or 2 public figures [on either side], or of slogans, but a fundamental challenge to a truly open and free society.

233 As noted last night, Brexit drama indeed.


I still don't see how this ends well for the Remainers, or whatever you call those [including BoJo] willing to settle for a very flawed "deal". National sentiment appears to have *increased* Brexit support, according to surveys, and the logic of both UK and EU mechanisms leads to "clean Brexit" if nothing can be worked out.


A general election will resolve it all, and may no longer be avoidable. And it greatly favors creating a "clean-Brexit friendly" new parliamentary alignment.

234 "But "deep state" much too often seems to be imagined as an

key cases combined with a lack of public service ethics." rhomboid

my working theory is that there is a central power structure, CFR type coordination, biggest bankers at the top. They are not quite a"hail Hydra" institution, but like with gang warfare, they all have their turf, and a sort of code of silence, with common enemies being Trump and any like him that might be "white hat minded".

The names we hear routinely are the cutouts, pushed around by various special interests, to the point where Hillary can order a "resistance" and there will be many the feel compelled to serve the "DeepState", above God and country. But those ranks are filled with the corrupt, maybe some well-intentioned, but mostly just all part of the beltway self serving culture of fake "elitism", making them vulnerable.


But guys like Soros definitely coordinate their efforts with detailed planning/infiltration across many platforms (reporters, intelligence, politicians, foundations, board members in global companies like in Ukraine, etc.) Whether the top 80 old money families actually get together and plot the NWO? idk about that, they don't invite me, but it is not just random malfeasance in DC, there are billionaire puppeteers that prefer anonymity. imo

Soros pulls strings, has plenty of people on his payroll, even if that payroll is "his foundation" (he is in charge, even if technically a charity). It is not just a mindset ... but the DC mindset that serves the open borders "oligarchs" enables Trump's prime directive (border control) to be blocked.


CFR, idk what they do exactly, but they sure pull in a lot of people from the families of our politicians. Maybe ThePower has gone to other places now, idk. Why would so many big names get together to discuss? wedding plans and yoga? Of course they have influence, even if it is not direct.


The globalist banks acted as one to get HSBC out of some criminal charges, even though our DoJ had them dead to rights. And the efforts to protect Hillary's crimes sure seems top down to me, as is the "we will stop him| and the insurance policy against Trump.

globalist banker cartel making sure HSBC is not criminally charged.
youtu.be/2gK3s5j7PgA?t=1332

Sure, there is a DC mindset that enables this ... there are certainly key players that take criminal action on behalf of others. The coup to frame Trump was coordinated, more than just a mindset. imo ... but I always want to hear what rhomboid has to say on subjects, from his inside view. But the inside view can be occluded as well, and the worst crooks seem like nice guys face to face.

All you need to do to vote in Calif, is have a name (note even a valid one), and an address.

You can register on a little post card, send it in, and ask for mail in ballots.

You can then either mail it in, drop it off, OR, now give it to a 'vote harvester'.

In order to 'clean up' the voter rolls, Calif sent every registered voter a Post card, which said, please contact us if you are no longer living at this address, or have died.

Good morning Morons. Let us review some stories that didn't get their fair share of attention here at the AoSHQ this past week.

***

  • Looks like Bill Kristol has been traveling.

  • Elon Musk genius or total dumb shit?

  • Armed robber forgets arms.

  • Who will be the Moron guinea pig?

  • Sometimes apologies just don't cut it.

  • This gives new meaning to the .99 menu.

  • Some things you can't unsee. Yeah, I would agree with that.

  • About that missing package..........

  • Ahhh the old "Bait & Switch" routine.

  • Everybody's vacation destination is different. This isn't for me.

  • That's one hell of a brewski.

  • The dog ate my homework. The cat ate my electrician.

  • Shut up and leave us alone.

    Enjoy these stories or something else that trips your trigger in this open thread. Remember the rules are simple, don't run with sharp objects and be kind to one another. Have a great weekend!!

    12 Solidarity, Y'All: How Socialists Are Targeting Trump Country

    (Bloomberg) -- America's socialists reckon they're on a roll. Next stop: Trump country.


    The movement has long been confined to the fringes in U.S. politics, and also on the map. It's associated nowadays with hipster enclaves of the West Coast, or New York -- where the country's most famous socialists are teaming up on Saturday, when Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will endorse Bernie Sanders for president at a rally.



    But now it's spreading across the Rust Belt, Midwest and South. At least 60 branches of the Democratic Socialists of America, the most prominent among a bunch of reinvigorated leftist groups -- have sprung up in the the past year, mostly in conservative areas where President Donald Trump did well with voters.




    This is so typical of the leftist crap that is pushed out every day by Bloomberg. Just flat out pro-commie. Y'all. See they know how to talk to us hicks

Ace has posted about the dopamine addiction being part of BigTech's marketing plan ... specifically Facebook, iirc.

    99 To survive the summer heat, Qatar not only air-conditions its soccer stadiums, but also the outdoors - in markets, along sidewalks, even at outdoor malls so people can window shop with a cool breeze. "If you turn off air conditioners, it will be unbearable. You cannot function effectively," says Yousef al-Horr, founder of the Gulf Organization for Research and Development.

    Yet outdoor air conditioning is part of a vicious cycle. Carbon emissions create global warming, which creates the desire for air conditioning, which creates the need for burning fuels that emit more carbon dioxide. In Qatar, total cooling capacity is expected to nearly double from 2016 to 2030, according to the International District Cooling and Heating Conference.

    And it's going to get hotter.

It cost the protesters a lot of public support as we all had to finad alternate ways to get to work as many MTR stations, including mine in Tseung Kwan O, remained closed for days. The town is under a sort of curfew as the MTR is now being shut down around 10:00PM. Oh well - the only solution I have is the time honored one for all ex-pats: alcohol. Its been pretty quiet with only some minor protest activity. We shall see if this starts to peter off - it may I think. Lots of people were pissed.

If those numbers hold up (and even if, as some gloomy Gus above suggested, all of the 12% new voters are "new" because they just reached voting age - that would still be amazing) then Trump wins in a walk. I think if Warren is the nominee it will be a 48 state landslide and a popular vote win.

    I can't figure Tulsi out, since she is smart enough to identify the
    problem with the Democrat party and tough enough to stand up to the
    bullshit they throw her way, why is she still calling herself a liberal?
    When an open-minded person looks at Democrat governance anywhere in
    America you'd think they'd be cured pretty fast.

    Because she remains a liberal on most things.

    Part of the reason the Cruise Ship guys were so successful for so long was that by merely mouthing what most of us thought, we figured we had long-sought allies.

    Gabbard's very similar. She says a few non-crazy things and everyone's like "oh, yay! She should run with Trump."

    No, she's still very liberal on a lot of things, she's just not screaming at clouds crazy.

Also that there is a big divide between the "O" and enlisted population, especially GO's (see Mattis and McRaven this week). Some of the .mill oriented publications have done a pretty good breakdown of the MT poll and noted it was a very small sample, but nonetheless should not be ignored. My only point is to ignore this now is to do so at our peril.

    If you have a preference for a candidate, you get to vote.
    If you have a strong preference, you get to vote twice.
    If you have a very strong preference, you can vote three times.
    Very VERY strong preference -- four times.

    It was the spoken rule when I was in.

    The fact is, loyalty is a big deal where morale is concerned. It is one thing to dislike, or disapprove of a superior, but unit cohesion and order require that you f*cking follow orders and get on with job without criticizing anyone in the chain of command.

    Griping? Well sure, the military feeds on griping, but that's different.

I just happen to disagree with the execution and methods (not necessarily the goals) of our presidents foreign policy because in the end I don't believe it places our country and citizens in a better, less dangerous place on the world. By the way, hope I am wrong. I honestly do because, unless the president adjusts, we are going to watch this play out.

    We'd just gotten out of a tough firefight - I can't say where, of course - but I'm sure you can guess the AOR. (That's military jargon, because I'm career mil guy. E, not O.)

    Anyways, to see the tears in the eyes of this solid NCO broke my heart. We're losing these people because TRUMP CAN'T SHUT UP.

    Why won't you people see that? Why can't he just be dignified like Mitt Romney, (who I totally hate, by the way).

    That's totally different because while tweets are literally a hate crime, it's common for committed Republicans like ourselves to may references to hanging our political opponents like you-know-who.

    I can say that here because we're sophisticated people, who don't use schoolyard taunts or anything.

    369 Sorry but win or lose or draw, this is NOT a foreign policy election, and Trump's not trying to fight it as one.

    Though if he wants to make it one in a hurry, he could always expand American military commitments. That would do the trick.

    Which is why the Uniparty is so strident and eager to get him to.

    370 One more reminder..

    Trump won the presidency by only 100,000 votes spread over 3 states. Think about that.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------
    This is correct, but but he did this despite the "omg pussy-gate" being still non stop in the news cycle.

    There was a pool of never-trumpers based on that and I'm guessing in the 3 years since, about half of those have converted to Trump acceptance in some form or another. (based on trends of %R support increasing from election to now) The rest are bitter clingers

    Trump has changed the Overton window significantly.

    But there are other factors. Cankles was a horrible candidate and I think whoever wins the D nomination will inevitably have a higher likability than her, resulting in more D vote consolidation.

    Which leaves the independents, of whom, if they voted for Trump based on his campaign platform would have no reason to not vote again, as I can't recall a candidate religiously going through with their promises no matter how many "Sacred Cows" they'd have to slaughter(unlimited free trade, COC cheap labor supply, IC shakeups etc) and boats than need rocking.

    Also Independents who voted for Cankles as a status quo type who wasn't going fundamentally full on embrace socialism like the current crop of candidates, will either switch votes or not vote at all.

    And of course 3rd party candidates like Gary Johnson and/or the Green party candidate(Jill Something) had the effect of the sub 50% majority wins in those states. Will this dynamic be similar in 2020? Who knows?

    I'm not one who thinks Trump has this in the bag (of course I hope he wins in a landslide). i still think the electorate as a whole is a wildcard and as much as I wish it were not the case, the MSM will still have some influence (depleted as it is)

    17 Good Morning Morons; today is Saturday, October 19, 2019. On this day in 1960 President Eisenhower imposed a near-total trade embargo against Cuba. In December 2014 President Choom lifted the embargo and established relations with Cuba and reopened the US embassy in Cuba. Communists were his buddies. In 2017 President Trump reinstated almost all the stuff Obama did.

    75 Before heading out for the day, let me say that Kasich deserves some props for what he did way back when.

    He was one of Newt's greatest allies during their brief blaze of glory, leading to a "balanced budget." (Still with scads of off-budget spending, tho.) He left the House in disgust after glomming onto the fact that there was no consensus in DC for cutting spending. (The "Penny Plan" that Hannity used to yammer about ad nauseum is from Kasich, and it's not a bad idea at all.)

    Apparently, tho, he was so butt-hurt he just decided the hell with it and the hell with them. Not a good look, but perhaps understandable. And now, at last, here we are.


    Have a great Saturday, horde!

    THIS. Hillary drew the spotlight on her and she is taking a play from Trump's book and attacking back twice as hard. She has to keep it up and if she does, the media and Hillary will fall into the trap of letting her get tons of attention.

    87 This article is very confusing to me, but what it looks like is liberals
    want to strike down State laws that make it illegal for illegals to
    steal your identity because they are unconstitutional.

    X X X
    The argument is that the fed gov't has said certain federal tax forms cannot be used except for X, Y, and Z (note the Oxford comma) but state prosecution use is W. In essence, states would need to find some other way to prove the identity theft. This is a form of preemption where the higher authority (US v. State, State v. county) has regulated a field and said, explicitly or implicitly, "only we can do anything in this field". So, basically, it would be up to the federal government to prosecute the illegals (or anyone else for that matter).

    New York I think is the only state that has what are, or were, the Regents Exams. In any case, I was not doing well in junior high algebra and I had a tutor. Busted my ass to both pass the class (momma expected at least an 80/B grade) and the Regents. And then the tests were cancelled for the entire city because some schmucks stole the exam. I was pissed, both because I knew I was going to ace the test and because they could have waited a year when I had to take the chem and bio regents. That was 1974. I remember it well...

    Funny that much of the Progressive agenda is based on taxing wealth to help the little people. All of the plans to bring minorities to suburban communities via unqualified home loans and vouchers destroy the tax base. So then the Progressives are forced to increase tax rates and/or go to other tax districts to rob them of their taxes.

    Trump is ripping up the old two-tiered system where the left does whatever it wants and the right has to let them in the name of "civility."

    I think a lot of this attitude has to do with the affluent bubble these kids grow up in, where if they do something bad or stupid, their parents move heaven and earth to save them.

    But reality has no rewind button. I think the teen suicide rate is rising because when these kids hit actual adversity, they have zero means to cope with it.

    Thing is, there's no ratcheting it back or toning it down, or appeals to civility? Yeah well, the left destroyed that decades ago. The toothpaste isn't gonna go back in the tube.

    That's why watching the left go completely scorched earth is so bizarre. None of this was "necessary". But the response, the payback if you will, most certainly is. I don't believe they've thought anything through. I suppose looking for a method to the madness is pointless.

    216 This article is very confusing to me, but what it looks like is liberals want to strike down State laws that make it illegal for illegals to steal your identity because they are unconstitutional. This is patently crazy and I have no idea why this has made it all the way to SCOTUS. This case should have been thrown out of court immediately on filing.
    _______________

    The argument is that the feds have essentially pre-empted prosecution for identity theft based on fraudulent info provided to prospective employers on I-9's and other docs, so therefore the states can't prosecute illegals for this.

    If the SCOTUS buys this argument, that basically means that states can prosecute citizens for identity theft, but they can't prosecute illegal aliens for identity theft, which is ridiculous, especially here in AZ, which leads the nation in identity theft, for all the obvious reasons.

    Watch Kavanaugh on this one. He's the one who was making noises during oral arguments suggesting he buys this ludicrous argument.

    Democrats have completely forgotten that as it exists in this country at this time, Hispanic culture is still a working class culture. Dem's have been taken over by the ruling class University Liberalism that is exemplified by Lizzie Warren screeching at the top of her lungs about how you must behave.

    that whole approach is anathema to any working class culture, which in all of it's flavors still always tends to support a strong man who acts like a strong man. (probably because they identify with such a man on a visceral level)

    The idea that Hispanics in general could ever buy into the Tranny Rights movement is laughable, no matter how much money was handed out. I am not saying, like Karl Rove, that hispanic voters are allies, but there are a lot of fault lines which can be used to split them from the Northeastern libs like Lizzy Warren.

    I advise all to wait until the actual decision comes out. Every Supreme Court session, a gallery full of supreme court watchers writes up what they think will happen based on oral arguments, and every fall their predictions are confounded by the fact that many justices (going back to the beginning of the Court itself) use oral arguments as a way to test the strength of arguments, or to play devils advocate, or pursue some other question.

    I don't know, of course, whether Kavanugh did this, but all should be aware that the various Justices routinely write opinions that come out taking the opposite position from what people thought they would do, based on oral argument. It's a time honored tradition on the Court.

    247 And yes...many residents of the late Elijah Cummings District recognize the incongruity of a single person being able to accomplish more in one weekend to clean their neighborhood than years of Democratic leadership has been able to accomplish.


    Yes, the people living there were quite happy to see them. It was the political entities that were pissed because it exposed just how awful they are. One guy and a bunch of volunteers did more for the community than they have done in decades. There is a clothing shop right down the street from the district office of Cummings declaring, "It's better to have rats than to be one." I found it quite condescending for the residents of this particular town to declare this. They sure as heck don't live in the conditions of West Baltimore.

    Mordecai Gist's Maryland Macaronis

    Here's the story of one of Maryland's native sons who saved the Continental Army at The Battle of Long Island, and as such, perhaps we owe this entire nation we call the United States to his actions. Perhaps not, the fun thing about alternative history is that we don't know what would have happened if something changes, but he sure saved Washington's bacon that day. As for his Macaronis? Twelve out of the original 270 made it back to American lines, the rest either killed or captured. With their lives and freedom they bought a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. (Yes, I know that's from the Civil War. One of Gist's descendants, General States Rights Gist, was killed at The Battle Of Franklin, fighting for the Rebs. Gist's own sons were named Independent and States. I kinda miss 18th and 19th century patriotic naming conventions)

    18 Hey everybody.

    WeirdDave, love the "trying to lift the gate" video.

    Once when I worked in the copy room at a community college, I had a professor who couldn't figure out how to remove a spiral binding from a book. I zipped it off right in front of him in 0.5 seconds. Boy was his face red.

    I think Colorado goes for Trump in 2020. He only lost there by 5% in 2016.

    Trump also takes Minnesota (1.5%), Nevada (2.4%), Virginia (5.3%), Maine (2.96%), and New Hampshire (0.37%).

    The communist, whoever it winds up being, likely keeps the Left Coast, the rest of New England (other than Maine and New Hampshire), Maryland, Delaware, and Illinois.

    Not quite a Jimmy Carter or George McGovern level of curb-stomping, but it's going to be close.

    114 So I got dragged into a conversation with one of the local Democrats. They're all Democrats here. This one was from NYC, 1970s vintage.

    Donald Trump was a PoS, I'm told, caused a concrete shortage in New York, ran the city down 1970s-80s.

    And I was told Trump was going to be impeached Nixon-style, with some Republicans telling him he'd have to resign.

    I didn't live through NYC 1970s-80s except from what I read in NYC media. I got the impression that, yeah, Noo Yawkers didn't like the man.

    As for impeachment drama: I got the impression this dude was still living in 1974. I think that if Romney, Lee, and Murkowski walked into the God Emperor's office and told him "you're going to be impeached", TGE will tell them "then do it, faggots". Good luck with THAT.

    Posted by: boulder t'hobo at October 18, 2019 10:38 PM (ykYG2)

    115 People like Katshit and Mitt Rattmy are always going to be thorns in Trump's side. The good news is that people EXPECT them to and thus, they don't move the needle towards impeachment.

    Posted by: JoeF. at October 18, 2019 10:38 PM (o1fzk)

    116 I think Colorado goes for Trump in 2020. He only lost there by 5% in 2016.

    Trump also takes Minnesota (1.5%), Nevada (2.4%), Virginia (5.3%), Maine (2.96%), and New Hampshire (0.37%).

    The communist, whoever it winds up being, likely keeps the Left Coast, the rest of New England (other than Maine and New Hampshire), Maryland, Delaware, and Illinois.

    Not quite a Jimmy Carter or George McGovern level of curb-stomping, but it's going to be close.

    I buy all of those except VA and CO. Colorado is sadly too infested with Californians fleeing the mess they made, in my opinion, and NoVa is a millstone around the rest of the state's neck.

    But yeah, probably all the rest. Nevada might be a bit tough, depending on how much of Hairy Reed's machine is still in place, but certainly doable if Hispanics have swung Trump's direction as much as some polls suggest. And I'm fairly convinced he only lost NH in 2016 via fraud.

The Greeks taking over from the Persians taking over from the Egyptians taking over from the Persians etc etc was a case of Meet The New Boss Just Like The Old Boss.

    As for points south : I know that Nubia got a few raids from Ptolemaic Egypt but I don't know that it got anything out of the ordinary.

    Best I can tell, what threw Nubia into oblivion was (1) the collapse of the Med economy, thanks to Khusro II and the Arabs and (2) Islam, which found Nubia as an admittedly-peripheral trade point, and converted Nubia into a big slave state.

Crime was ravaging New York, and the Left of course said that Nothing Could Be Done Until Capitalism Was Overthrown.

    So, the voters elected Guliani, who brought in Bratton, and the rest is history.

    In the summer of 2001, as Guliani's term was winding down, the New York Times had an article about a meeting of academic historians studying New York City, who were debating whether Guliani was the greatest mayor New York had ever had, or whether LaGuardia was still a bit better.

    I thought: "You would have gotten no sense reading the New York Times over the last few years that a lot of people thought that Guliani was a great mayor."

    208 Watching Tucker on delay, and he compared the Jan Brewer finger-wag to the brave little toaster finger-wag of Nancy.

    And I was thinking about how my reaction didn't so wide.

    For Brewer: she had a point to make and it's not so bad.
    Nancy: who cares, she's a performer--am I surprised no.

    And then I thought about why Trump tweeted this out. It's because Nancy and Shroomer stormed out of the meeting and flung their arms and said Trump had a melt down back in there!

    Trump tweeted a picture that showed him and his staff calmly sitting listening to Nancy, who is up and on her feet and wagging her fingers. So the ENTIRE media lost the plot (Trump was a MANIAC!) and instead started lauding the Brave Little Toastette, Nancy Shrew.

    Nancy is so proud of being a spectacle that she puts it as her Twitter background.

    Again, the distractoids not only had a dramatically different reaction to disrespect to the "highest office in the land" but they FAILED. TO. FOLLOW. THE. CONVERSATION.

    And these people are constantly telling me I should just let them make decisions for me. When they can't follow a damn conversation to save their lives.

    297 Best wishes going out to all the 'Rons and 'Ettes at the Texas Momee!

    Combines are running in the quarter right next to my house. Gets noisy when they pass. That's OK, they are doing the Lord's work.

    I worked on my F150 today. Took the driver's door apart, in an effort to determine why the power window would not go down. Determined right away it was not the motor itself, as that ran fine, in both directions, when fed with power from a separate battery. Switch metered out OK, too. At least the funky pattern of closed and open contacts was the same for all 4 switches in the cluster.

    One thing I did notice is that the "one touch" relay clicked every time I pressed the "down" button for the driver's door. Which indicated that the realy was seeing the contact closure (or open???) from the switch OK. Took the relay out, took off cover. It looked OK. Put it back in. Window went down, once. Then intermittently, or not at all. Took out relay, searched for a similar one in my relay drawer. Found an exact match, same Ford part number, even. Plugged that in, window works 100 percent. Problem solved.

    While the door was apart, I replaced the scratched glass with a good pane. And got the door back together.

    Went to drive it to town, battery was dead, from sitting all afternoon with the door open and the courtesy lights all on.

    Oh well, that's what battery chargers are for.

    Years ago, I bought a used Datsun Maxima. The cruise control no workee. The cruise throttle control was a vacuum diaphragm which was modulated by an electronic valve.

    324 Good evening Horde.

    Oddly enough, and I tell you no lies, I bartended an awards banquet tonight with my eye patch on (from falling face first into a hedgerow and impaling my eyeball) for the Collegiate Umpires' Association in Knoxville.

    I did not feel particularly regal, though I'm told in the Kingdom of the Blind, a one-eyed man is King.

    Dog Fighting Breeder Found Tied Up and Beaten Pretty Bad By Masked Men

    A 52-year-old Detroit man and suspected dog fighting breeder was reportedly outside feeding his dogs when he was confronted by three armed men wearing masks to conceal their identities.

    The government legalized production of hazi (home-made) palinka up to 50 liters per adult. Which means all the old ladies in the family, so effectively you can make as much as you want.

    Quality varies, of course. I have had the pleasure of 15-20-27 year old hazi palinka, and it is fantastic. Typically 53% alcohol.

    Most hazi is aged for maybe one-two years (it's very raw if not aged) and pretty ok. In most villages there is one "official" palinka maker. You bring or buy the fruit of your choice, pay a fee, and later you get your palinka. But many people still do it in the back garden.

    My solving logic goes as follows:

    Find all the blanks, or zeros as I dubbed them in the code. For each zero found, walk the row, column, and
    3 x 3 submatrix and determine the possible values for that zero cell.

    Now, once you've done that, check if there are any unique values, cells which can only be one number. If so, fill them in and iterate again.

    Now, if you fall through that, reaching a case where you still have blanks, but each one has two or more possibilities, go to "mutual exclusion" search, I called it. Walk through each row and see if there such cases. If none found, look at columns, then submatrices.

    Once you find some mutual exclusion cases, fill them in and iterate again, starting with looking for unique zeros again.

    That has easily solved the first few "easy level" puzzles.

    That's how I'm creating the input files. However, with the C runtime library "scanf" function, you seperate with white space, not commas like BASIC and FORTRAN's formatted input routines use.

    You can easily modify it to use commas, but it adds complexity.

    388 >> Seems like the fastest way. Did it work for harder puzzles,

    I'll be playing with it for the harder level puzzles later tonight. For the easy (2/5) level I was writing and debugging it with, it took 13 iterations to solve. Very fast. And that was mostly the unique value loop.

    It went through 3 unique loops, then fell out. One mutual exclusion loop, then back to the unique loop which solved it. 13 total iterations.

    I have completely finished the "mutex" loop function yet. The logic is, start with rows. If you get hits, replace and reiterate. If you don't get row hits, go to column hits. Then if that fails, go to submatrix hits. I haven't written the submatrix mutex yet (nothing but slight modifications of the row column).

    So far, all it's needed is the row mutex loop.

    402 Accountants used to do something called "casting out nines" to check calculations. This involves calculating the so-called digital root of the number, one method for getting it is to repeatedly add the digits in the number until it's reduced to a single digit.

    Suppose you want to check that 123 + 456 = 579.

    First number: add 1 + 2 + 3 = 6. Single digit, stop.

    Second number: add 4 + 5 + 6 = 15, then add 1+5 = 6. Stop.

    Add 6 + 6 = 12, then 1 + 2 = 3. This is the digital root of the left-hand side.

    On the right-hand side (the sum), add 5 + 7 + 9 = 21, then add 2 + 1 = 3.

    Both sides have a digital root of 3, so the answer checks. This works with all the basic arithmetic operations on integers.

    Note that you can get a false positive if the erroneous value and the correct one are the same modulo 9, but that's only going to happen 1 time out of 9 on average.

    You can immediately throw out any nine (or group of digits that sum to 9) without changing the result. For instance, in the second number you could have thrown out the 4 and the 5, and in the sum you could have thrown out the 9 (hence, "casting out nines").

    But if you're off by some number that adds to nine (or a multiple), when balancing a checkbook, look for transposed digits somewhere.

    Then he met the guy that was selling the incredible meat, and he was cool with it. All because it was heavily processed lab created garbage, just like the stuff he likes. It's not healthier so he was happy and everyone else is just quietly looking down at their new "better" food.

    420 Beyond Meat has had a terrible, no good week in the stock market. Go to any
    upscale market and you will see the fake meat section is flooded with
    competitors now. One thing I have never seen is anyone else buy this
    stuff. I have tried a few Beyond products as well as the Impossible
    burger from BK and another sit down place. I have checked on the
    products and asked regional merchants about the sales. They say the
    sales are good, but I have never witnessed any other person buy this
    stuff in a super market.


    The thing about
    this is you can't predict whether it will collapse tomorrow or grow into
    a significant market niche. In theory they could make the product
    better. Also, you can't not judge Millennial power to ignore taste and
    do what they think will save the planet. Hell, Boston Beer (Sam Adams)
    freely admits ALL of their growth this year came from alcoholic water.
    If that stuff can catch on, why not bad for you fake meat?
    I
    say don't listen to me, try it for yourself. Try an Impossible
    Burger. But if you take a whiff, no chance you will think it reminds
    you of meat. And the smell is not good.

    The
    product could be improved. It is not like Burger King employs a lot of
    aspiring chefs. The Impossible Burger I had from a sit down place was
    better for sure. But even then, it had some serious negatives. They
    doused it with fake smoke and it did not sit well later.

That is not a good look. If you open a chic fil A you are almost guaranteed success. Why even try in the formerly Great Britain?

    Funny, they have halal fried chicken places all over that joint. Do they ask the proprietors of those locations their religious beliefs? I have nothing against the HFC's (yes, many are called that with no trademark issues). But fair is fair. Why not let the free market decide? Hell, the Dem leaders in NYC attacked Chic Fil A, but they lost. Too bad the Brits went wobbly so soon. I don't know a lot about the issue but if it is as bad as it seems, the US gov could probably get involved on a discrimination issue.

    Posted by: My life is insanity

    3 rough weeks. I had to spend a week in rehab to get strong enough to come home.
    Slowly getting back to things.
    PT is helping, but also hurtful. I took myself off the pain killers. All they seemed to be doing was making me constipated, and only letting me get about 2 hours of solid sleep each night.
    I got off them and about 4 days later...it was like a fog had been lifted from my brain.

    Posted by: Bruce at October 19, 2019 06:11 AM (vd8XM)

    471 Oh, man. I'm guessing the PT will eventually pay off. I agree about the pain killers, if you can manage without. Sometimes non-prescrip ones that can just 'take the edge off' will get you through the day.

    I've been thru this, but not to this extant, a little when I had ankle surgery. Got off pain killers and took ibuprofen, which actually helped with the pain.

    I've got family that work for a PT chain. They hooked me up with one of their really good guys for my ankle, so he's working on my knees now.
    They did PT in rehab, which consisted of things like put your heel on this piece of paper and slide it back and forth.
    I got out and went to my friend, on the first day, he had my knees at 95 and 0 degrees. I joked that he had my knees by my ears

    my point exactly. If you live in the South, they are ubiquitous. But there are so many regions of the USA that would support CFA expansion. The guys that went in for the UK attempt took on an added risk and got burned. I hope they press on but no way these nutters are going away. They don't believe in the free market or personal choice.

    Whoever got the CFA franchise in the UK could have done better by trying it in parts of the USA that don't have the franchise. I am not saying back down. But any country that would allow lawless assaults on someone trying to do lawful business would not be my first choice as an entrepreneur

    Have a great autumn weekend.

    Adam Schiff previously said that it was imperative that we have testimony from one of his fake whistleblowers.

    Then the news broke that he was meeting with and coordinating with these fake whistleblowers.

    Now he says it would be a terrible, terrible thing to make this patriot testify.

    What a surprise.

    Five states just hit record low unemployment.

    Alabama, California, Illinois, New Jersey and South Carolina all set new all-time low unemployment rates in September.

    The declines come amid a national jobless rate that fell to 3.5%, the lowest since 1969.


    ...

    Those drops came amid big year-over-year plunges of 0.8 percentage point for Alabama, Colorado and New Jersey. South Carolina had the largest month-over-month decline at 0.3 percentage point.

    Of those states, California, Illinois, New Jersey and Colorado all swung against President Donald Trump in the 2016 race against Democrat Hillary Clinton.

    Colorado could, maybe, flip red.

    Wompitty-womp womp womp.

    From the Soyciety Pages: David Brooks becomes the first NeverTrumper to endorse socialist Elizabeth Warren.

    56 I'll admit it's annoying to see how frequently my TDS-suffering pal in California favorites and retweets the nonsense that Bill Kristol, Jennifer Rubin and the rest of their pathetic ilk tweet.

    The thing is, he has no idea how much actual conservatives hold those clowns in contempt. He sees their activity as proof that Trump's just about thrown out of office now.

    57 Brooks is what I was talking about this morning. We had to vote for Romney or Putin--ahem--the Dems win.

    Now they're saying let the Dems win. Dems are trying to flood the country with people who don't know what America was like, but that's okay.

    These people are either 1) useless or 2) shills.

    71 Rep. Ken Buck's district has like 80% of Colorado's oil industry. The coasties who moved to Denver HATE the oil industry. A proposition to force 1/2 mile set-backs from even one rural house statewide was defeated but the state is trying to catch California it seems and the Rs are mostly still trying to place nice like #11 said. Trump might win but fail to pull squishy Gardner with him or possibly it could go the other way. I have no faith in the GOP leadership here to play to win.

    I saw something today that made me go hmmm . . .

    Who benefits most from the Senate going into a long, drawn out impeachment trial?

    Well, Senators are, I believe, obligated to sit in the chamber for the trial--and McConnell has said, I think, that the Senate would be going six days a week for the duration.

    Who's running for President on the D side? Who are the current front-runners? Who won't be able to get out and campaign very much while the impeachment trial is going on?

    For a long time, I've had the opinion that the DeepState's guy is Biden, and they're going to pull out all the stops to drag him across the finish line a la Hillary 2016. (Hillary2020 is the DeepState's "insurance policy.")

    Is it totally out of the question that the DeepState could be "managing" this whole impeachment shitshow to get their chosen candidate(s) into the Presidential general election?

    Question for the horde. Applying for a new position. Should I include a
    job that I was hired for but only worked for 9 weeks before resigning. I
    started, my Mom passed 2 weeks later, a week after that my Dad had an
    accident and lost his sight, 2 weeks after that he got MRSA pneumonia
    and was critical for 3 weeks after which I had hospice come in so I
    could bring him home. I had to resign to take care of him full time. He
    has passed (yep, both left me within the year). I submitted a resume
    without it and got the interview scheduled but am wondering if I should
    include the brief, brief employment.

    So only half the people are employed or unemployed, the rest are not counted in the labor force. Those not in the labor force includes children and retirees, but I couldn't tell if about 50% is normal. I worked at 16, then was a student, then worked till now ... I guess part time counts, in which case I also worked about half the years I was a student. Seems 50% in labor force is low, idk.

    Labor participation rate overall (US) is 63.2% ... finally ticking up a little under Trump. That counts everyone 16 and over.

    376 re Bill Macy (as I recall and took a peek at google): some years ago he did an appearance on the show that Norm MacDonald had on ABC, c2000. The then GORGEOUS Nikki Cox appeared in a number of episodes. Bill Macy did one episode. Cox apparently recognized him and went up to him. "Hi, I'm Nikki Cox" she said and as he put his hand out to shake her hand, he replied, "Hi, I'm Bill Pussy!"

    He apologized and sent her flowers. I am pretty sure I am remembering this correctly.

    380 Stella,
    I've actually forgotten several places I've worked. Or forgotten when I worked there. In my late teens and 20's I bartended and waited tables, sometimes at several places at the same time. No way I can remember where, when or how long some of the gigs were for. That was just the nature of the business. I also had an 11 year gap when I stayed home with my kids. That took knowing the right person to overcome.

    Doesn't matter. If the prospective employer finds out, by any means, you have a problem, because he has to wonder what else you haven't told him. Plus, he'll wonder if your story is true.

    All this bullshit #Resistance essentially renders us inert. Very little of substance is being done. The goal is to make us ungovernable.

    Normally that's a good thing and we should be cheering their sloth since every new law or rule or regulation we're forced to live under reduces our freedom, but the porous Mexican border remains a problem. It won't be fixed until we take back the House. Another Senate seat wouldn't hurt, either, but I don't know who's up for reelection and ready for a Trumpian Republican, if one could be found.

The kind of credit report that gets pulled for mortgages will show a lot more detail, and this is what a lot of prospective employers may use.

Internet history report would be the kind of detailed report that can be pulled on anyone, they cost around $20 to $30 .

    487 In that Tucker interview with Gabbard, Tucker failed to ask one question. Gabbard is against these never ending 'wars'. Before that interview, guests and Tucker were saying how ironic it was crappy politicians want to 'protect Syria's border' but no one seems to care about the open cartel war on our own border. (33,000 people murdered, more than double our body count but with one-third the population.) Tucker should have asked her what she thought about the situation on our Southern border and her opinion on building a wall there to protect CONUS. Might have exposed some of her hypocrisy if she was against these foreign 'wars' but all for laying down the red carpet for illegals.

    I honestly don't know Gabbard's opinion on our illegal invasion problem because I don't watch Dem klown kar kandidate debates.

    I think Colorado goes for Trump in 2020. He only lost there by 5% in 2016.

    Trump also takes Minnesota (1.5%), Nevada (2.4%), Virginia (5.3%), Maine (2.96%), and New Hampshire (0.37%).

    The communist, whoever it winds up being, likely keeps the Left Coast, the rest of New England (other than Maine and New Hampshire), Maryland, Delaware, and Illinois.

    Not quite a Jimmy Carter or George McGovern level of curb-stomping, but it's going to be close.

    While We Await Tulsi Gabbard's Press Conference, Here's Another Conspiracy Theory -- "Without Evidence," as Jake Tapper's Chyrons Would Have It If This Were Trump --- That 10-Year-Olds Hacked Into Florida's Election System and Changed the Results

    Even Politifact called this claim "mostly false" -- when Tulsi Gabbard claimed it over the summer.

    But now that Hillary Clinton is claiming it, I bet Politifact will go ahead and upgrade this to "It's complicated."

    A kid did hack into a system, but 1, it was just a replica website, and 2, it had nothing to do with vote recording or vote counting, but in displaying the results as they came in.

    It was a replica website -- not sure why there's a replica, but sometimes designers make dummy websites that to play with the coding without affecting the real website.

    And because it was only a replica, no one bothered to put security on it because who cares? It's just a sandbox for web designers to play around with. It would never go "live" and no one would ever see it besides the designers and the people who have to give a final approval for the design.

    This has been claimed and refuted several times, but this bloated, hugely fat old drunk sow is still living in Sydney Blumenthal's dream-webs and spinning them out to her media pals.

    This is the sensible centrist the True Cons are still angry at us for not joining them in supporting.

    Hillary supporter Robert Zimmerman on FoxNEws doubles down: He's basically arguing that yes, anyone who disagrees with Hillary Clinton is either a Russian Asset or so close to being one that it causes no harm to go ahead and claim they are.

    I think the Collusion Delusion just jumped the shark so spectacularly that even Low Information Voters are starting to understand that these people now accuse others of being a RUSSIAN ASSET as readily as they accuse them of being RACIST.

    And they understand that this cudgel is just used for political posturing, and that there's usually nothing to evidence the charge.

    CBS actually bothers to cover this, noting that it's an

    Not really. It's just an ordinary opening gambit for the left these days.
