10 So I'm up early-ish drinking "Zola Coconut Water", which was billed as having two espresso shots' worth of caffeine.

It still tastes like water.

13 Willowed:

Goodell did a good job of hollowing out the Cowboys with Ezekiel Elliott's suspension.

Hard to believe that one guy is that important, but without him the Cowboys sputter out on offense consistently,

and the defense stays on the field so long that they're worn out by the second half.

If this is part of some long-standing feud between Jones and Goodell that's just become noticeable to the rest of us in the last few weeks,

I guess it's Goodell 1 Jones 0.

35 I love these crowd scenes by Steen. The colors in this one are somewhat muted because it's indoors but they blend well and aren't dull. Like Rembrandt, the characters are each distinct and individual. There is a LOT to take in for the viewer. (Maybe the ancestor of "Where's Waldo"?) And the outright humor, not moralistic scolding about demon rum, makes the whole painting fun and effective.

CBD, Thanks. A great choice for the day after Thanksgiving.

Now to go back and look at it some more for all the different people and, especially, the musical instruments.

The Morning Report 11/24/17

PDTCG.jpg

Good morning kids. Well, Thanksgiving Day has come and gone. Hope you all were surrounded by loved ones, "blessed their hearts" of your Lefty relations and most importantly stuffed yourselves to the gills with great food.

I'll keep things light for Friday but there are still some interesting things going on despite the long holiday weekend. First, and foremost, prayers for the sailors lost at sea and their families in the wake of a Navy plane crash in the Philippine Sea.

At home, there are reports that Michael Flynn may be cooperating with Robert "Hillary Mule" Mueller. Despite all the now confirmed evidence that there was not only no "collusion" with Russia by PDT to rig the elections but that Hillary, Obama and the Democrats worked hand in glove with them over a period of years and in ways that are borderline if not actual treason. And with Mueller and Comey as part of the conspiracy and coverup. He has got to go and yesterday.

Latest to jump on the destroy the Bill Clinton legacy bandwagon - in order to deflect the taint and blame Trump - is Kathleen Sebelius. And speaking of that boney fingered harridan who helped run our healthcare into the ground, another boney fingered harridan in the form of Lisa Murkowski has signaled that she will support the repeal of the individual mandate in the Tax Reform bill. That is potentially huge, the true nature of what's in the bill notwithstanding.

There are a couple of great articles near the top about the de-facto civil war we and the President are in. Roy Moore appears to be gaining back the momentum as the smear campaign is petering out. I did see a story over at American Spectator that alleges his campaign is making robo-calls that are of an anti-Semitic nature. I call bullshit; even the author who is a Jew and rightly concerned has flat out stated no matter what, vote for Roy Moore. Meanwhile, both John Conyers and Al Franken are stating that they will not resign, so pass the popcorn. Lastly a really amazing story of kindness and humanity in spite of what the world can do to you.

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

And now that Black Friday is here, a little theme music from Steely Dan...

7 On the Flynn BS


Attorneys for former White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn have informed President Donald Trump's legal team that they can no longer discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian activities during the 2016 election campaign, The New York Times reported Thursday.



If this is not an outright lie it is is an indication that Flynn wants to cop a deal with the witch hunt team and he is going to try to sell out Trump with a pack of lies. Morons need to keep in mind that Trump fired this guy.

14 On this Black Friday shopping day brick and mortar stores are going all out to lure shoppers back from the internet. If they really wanted to get a lot shoppers back they would get their local politicians to get rid of outrageous sales taxes. For example my local town has a 10.5% sales tax on non-food items. Needless to say, almost everything I buy in that town is a food item.

Despite some really horrible corruption scandals over the past 50 years now, I have to say I love our cops. They put up with a lot of crap from City Hall, especially now that DeBolshevik reigns, and are a walking target every time they put on that uniform. So, with the cameras rolling and thousands of people watching, I'm sure they used only as much force as was required to get them off the street.

That said, I was on a DUI jury duty case where despite the best efforts of who I later discovered was a mafia lawyer to get the defendant off (namely smearing the police officers), the cops who came to testify were shockingly ill-prepared.

I think I went off on a tangent there. Anyway, in a saner world, a public application of hickory shampoos without fear of repercussions. would indeed send a message.

Once the NFL made people see beyond the image of the uniform, the logos and also the history, all they saw was a bunch of knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, mal-educated lowlife victims of the Great Society beating up their wives, mothers of their bastard kids and dogs, murderers and other assorted thugs now beating up on America and the flag.

57 Good morning.

Yesterday went well, despite a couple mishaps.

The bread maker died, so we were in danger of having no egg bread.

I have a challah recipe that I've been making since I was a teenager, so I whipped that up, made it into 2 smaller loaves, put one on the bottom shelf of the oven under the turkey and one in the toaster over.

Emergency challah FTW!

Now the bread loving teenage boy has tasted it and I see more loaves in my future.

64 From Front Page Mag, we have this gem:

In July 2017, Zakkout posted on his Facebook page a four-minute portion of a speech given by Louis Farrakhan, where Farrakhan repeatedly refers to Jews as "Satan." Farrakhan states (with shouts of agreement from the audience), "Really, they're not Jews. No, that's Satan. You should learn to call them by their real name, 'Satan.' You're coming face to face with Satan, the Arch Deceiver, the enemy of God, and the enemy of the righteous."

Farrakhan -- That name rings a bell. Isn't the 2nd in command at the DNC fundraising arm a Farrakhan disciple, ie Keith Ellison?

Anyhow, if I slip up occasionally and refer to our morning host as JJ Satan, I'm sure you all will understand.

I couldn't bare the thought of sitting at our table with out our usual crowd, so we decided to go to Ruth's Chris in Richmond, it was quite delicious and the best part was no dishes.

I've always taken it that Mephostohilis was telling Faustus: even when I appear to you on earth, my soul is still condemned to hell, for eternity.

He's trying to warn Faustus against what Faustus is about to do: sell his soul to the devil. (Mephostophilis goes on to say: "thinkest thou that I who saw the face of God and tasted the eternal joys of heaven am not tormented with ten thousand hells in being deprived of everlasting bliss?")

But whenever I'm having a bad day, I think of that "Why this is hell" line.

140 Black Friday shopping - if anyone is interested in DNA testing kits

the 23andMe health & ancestry kit normally $200 is half off at amazon, which is cheaper than at their site ($50 off). Their ancestry only kit is 30% off.

The AncestryDNA test is $59 at their website.

Btw search amazon using Ace's amazon link on the right and he gets a few pennies

or if you like, use my site to search (link at nic) - click on any book link that takes you to Amazon

thanks much!

141 No, it's clear from "Dr. Faustus" that Christopher Marlowe is saying not that hell is other people, but losing the opportunity to be in the presence of God.


Meph: Why this is hell, not am I out of it. Think'st thou that i who saw the face of God, and tastedd the eternal joys of Heaven, An not tormented with ten thousand hells, in being derived of everlasting bliss.

153 We need Uranium One witnesses to reveal that the Mueller/Rosenstein mobsters were part of the Clinton Crime Syndicate, the inside men helping sell America out to globalists/oligarchs.

That's a rather tall order, but "New World Order" is treason on the face of it. Dig deeper and it is even more treasonous. There do seem to be some men inside against it, which is why Hillary needed "special handling" by selected "mobster lawyers" to escort Hillary around traditional justice.

HSBC got caught money laundering $2B (mishandling a trillion) and a team had prosecution ready to indict, but international bank law was imposed from London, Lynch intervened ... bada bing ... they only got a fine.

Hard to tell if that order is crumbling with Weinstein and Clinton, or if they are just making adjustments. As long as Mueller's coup is operated with no oversight, the beast is still in battle mode.

Yeah, I see this happening just as you unfolded. There is no indication Mueller and his band of Hillary foot soldiers are wrapping up anything. And no indication they will be fired either. We can't even get rid of the rest of the Obama holdovers, fer pete's sake.

As for the GOP, I have zero doubt they are all happily standing back and waiting for the Mueller team to get rid of Trump for them. No doubt.

Turkeys responsible for 60% of greenhouse emissions from a Thanksgiving dinner. This complements other studites that cats and dogs are also responsible for greenhouse emissions.

The solution here seems obvious. If animals are a source of the greenhouse gases that are destroying the planet, then we must kill all the animals in order to save the planet, or else it will mean the end of life on earth.

Regardless what the resident Session's fluffer says, the DOJ aint doing jack shit regards Uranium One or the countless other crimes we know where committed by Hilary, Mueller, Obama, et al

I've resigned myself to the fact that unless Trump starts actively directing the FBI and DOJ nothing is going to be done about the wanton and out of control criminality that we know occurred and is being revealed on a daily basis.

We used to have a football game on during the Thanksgiving festivities but that just stopped a few years ago. I don't remember any discussion about it but whoever used to turn on the TV stopped and no one else cared enough to it themselves. We collectively seemed to have decided that the family would rather talk and gossip than watch a ball game during Thanksgiving Day.

209 Lovely Thanksgiving Present for us-


The delightful and dutiful Mrs naturalfake's father appeared to be at Death's Door due to massive internal bleeding with complications.

She rushed off to help her Mom and say good-bye.

But, Death apparently told him that it was not his time.

And after surgery he is recovering nicely.

I made a mini-feast of a small rib roast and Yorkshire Pudding. Delicious.

And. of course, we had the Avatar of Thanksgiving Cheer, canned cranberry sauce.

(It is not Thanksgiving without CCS, despite the presence of homemade CS)

So, lots to be thankful for, God laid a rather nice table for us this year.

You're not replacing the NFL's current labor pool with some other labor pool.

So your not suddenly going to get a plethora of white wide receivers and DB's to replace the black players.

So the only way is for white's to tune out the NFL and decimate their bottom line.

And even then they might not change their ruinous behavior.

Leftism/Progressivism like it's cousin communism is a virus that typically destroys it's host.

220 The day of the election I mentioned to the horde that had fears and doubts, to listen to Caddell and Coulter discussing the polling that was revealing the Trump groundswell. Caddell revealed what he saw in polling that was being ignored.

Pat seems to be a real patriot and is probably sickened by the globalist/criminal takeover of the Democrat party over the decades.

"America First" was a (Dem at the time?) Trump issue in the late 1980's, and he was certainly way ahead of the curve (ahead of Greenspan saying the stock market had "irrational exuberance") on seeing tax policy and easy money policy pushing money into global(ist) stocks instead of build America.

In 1990 Trump testified to Congress about it and they all loved him. But the globalist mob has been in charge of making the hedge fund Wall Streeters into mega billionaire oligarchs, and that is still our path, it would seem. Voters are an inconvenience, but they are being dealt with.

224 The NFL has had a steroid problem for many years. Players are too fast and strond, which leads to big hits and concussions, which leads to 50 year olds committing suicide. Get the league back to what it was many years ago and I would watch. They do not even try to enforce steroid usage.

I think that's the primary reason no one on either side of the aisle wants to look into this with any degree of effort. It would demonstrate several things that no one wants to have confirmed:

The affurmatif axshun preznit was actively helping a state sworn to our destruction; Skankles and the CGI were just convenient tools.

The GOPe, the LEAs and the IC almost certainly knew of this activity and failed to act on it

The MSM was actively engaged in covering it up and protecting the Won.

I sometimes think that PDT has allowed things like the "investigation" to persist, because he doesn't want the voters to become complacent. They've got to see that DC is toxic and continue their efforts to elect actual conservatives. Allowing the "swamp" to strain at the leash may be a tactic. 11D chess and all.

The hope is from pressure from the outside, like Judicial Watch and Sara Carter investigative journalists with some financial backing. Plus the bloggers and alternative media making enough penetration into the public awareness zone.

We all hope so, too. The most wretched thing about CA today is that there are only two models of getting by that work - you can have no job at all, be on every government assistance program, and live in some level of government subsidized housing - of course it benefits you greatly if you are black or hispanic and have 6 or 7 kids. People in that category seem to get by pretty well there these days, everything is paid for.

OR you can be what the rest of us call rich, pulling in a salary of at last $200,000/yr. Life can be good if you're in that category, as is most of San Fran.

Anybody in between those two extremes is stuck in hell and needs to get out as fast as they can.

242 Morning everyone. Some interesting points to ponder and comment on. So i will.

Baseball had a massive steroid problem not long ago, and despite the excitement of average-sized guys getting suddenly BIG and hitting 50 HRs, etc., the public turned on them, even rejected them. and look at the result - this year's World Series was awesome, LAST years' WAS was historic, etc.

I bet if football tried the same, and went after clean gamesmanship, they might be able to dig themselves out of a hole. As it is, they lost this 50+ year fan. Didn't watch FB on TGiving, for the first time in decades.

245 Goodell did a good job of hollowing out the Cowboys with Ezekiel Elliott's suspension.

Hard to believe that one guy is that important, but without him the Cowboys sputter out on offense consistently,

and the defense stays on the field so long that they're worn out by the second half.

If this is part of some long-standing feud between Jones and Goodell that's just become noticeable to the rest of us in the last few weeks,

I guess it's Goodell 1 Jones 0.

Thanksgiving ONT

Greetings and happy Thanksgiving! Tonight's ONT will be brief, but I have a few links for those of you who are fighting through a tryptophan-induced stupor in order to post here. Hope everyone had a wonderful day, filled with something like this:

thanksgiving-dinner.jpg

Or was it? Here are The Most Popular Thanksgiving Foods in All 50 States, Mapped.

Some of these are as to be expected, but some are not. Maryland having crab cakes isn't shocking, but what's wrong with you, Texas? Chicken spaghetti? Really? I've never even heard of chicken spaghetti. I think even a turkey lollipop would be more traditional:


Of course, there's more to Thanksgiving dinner than turkey.

Sides.jpg


Rolls? Cool. Mac & Cheese? Doable. Salad though? Don't you westerners know anything?


Of course, that's a traditional meal. Some people, however...

What I learned when I tried to make a gluten-free, vegetarian, kosher, no soy, vegan, organic, low acid, no dairy …

Honestly, I'll make a reasonable effort to accommodate anyone, but if your dietary restrictions are that esoteric, bring your own food.

Well, enough about the meal. How about The Origin of 7 Thanksgiving Traditions?

Of course, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks, and I'm thankful for all of you Morons who allow me to natter aimlessly at you twice a week. What are you thankful for? I think we can all be thankful that our Fore Fathers had the wisdom and foresight to design for us a system of government that would ensure that we remained free.

I realize that limited government has been under attack for more than a century now, but honestly, 90% of the problems we have in this country could be solved by just going back to the way things were intended.

Some of you may have given thanks in a church today. That's a proper thing to do. I don't know a thing about their ministry, or whether I would even find this church to be a spiritual home, but I do like the sign out front:

church.jpg

I have my own, somewhat non-traditional idea about what Christ meant by “turn the other cheek”, but I'm absolutely sure that he didn't mean to cower in a corner to be shot down like a dog.

Finally, now that Thanksgiving is behind us, Christmas season is upon us. I would like to remind everyone to reach out to the less fortunate in your community, and there is no better way to do that than by helping this wonderful charity:

I hope everyone had a blessed day with friends and family, and would like to close with a money-saving tip for the holidays:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeP4FFr88SQ

Note that he is introduced by Pete Seeger. At the time Dylan was famous as a "protest singer". This was where he left all that behind and struck out on his own.

All the folk music commies were like, "WTF is this shit? He's supposed to be singing protest songs!"

This was where Dylan basically told the folk music commies to go pound sand. This was a year before he "went electric".

Yes, I do. The law is the law, actions are actions. Who you are shouldn't matter. Ever.



If you think it's worse for one person to do it than another, then
write a different law to cover that. So if a cop beats you up, he's
guilty of assault, and if such a law exists, he's also guilty of
misusing his power.



But your assault is the same whether I do it or he does it.



And now, with that, I'm out. So please don't fret too much over this. We're probably arguing semantics as much as anything.

No, it absolutely is not the same thing. If I assault you - you can fight back to protect yourself. If a police officer assaults you - in most states - you are legally prohibited from fighting to protect yourself; even curling up into a ball will get you a "resisting arrest" charge tacked on.

124 Stuffing/dressing is the important side in my world. I don't bother with rolls or biscuits cuz who needs it with the wonderful sage bread stuffing I make. Mashed taters to go with the gravy from the turkey drippings and a basic veggie dish, I like to bake a yam or 2. and pumpkin custard for dessert.

125 31 Drudge links to an LA Times piece concerning homelessness with the headline "Most Homeless siI nce the Great Depression."

Did anyone see one article about homelessness in America between 2009 and 2017?
Posted by: JoeF.


And the LA Times is in a state that seems to go out of its way to make housing unaffordable.

A short time ago I had a conversation with my SIL about her best friends married daughter. This is a couple, fully employed who had to share an apartment in San Francisco because they couldn't afford rent on their own. So in order to live without roommates, they moved to a sketchy area in Oakland, which, of course, means less housing for low income people.

137 No, it absolutely is not the same thing. If I assault you - you can fight back to protect yourself. If a police officer assaults you - in most states - you are legally prohibited from fighting to protect yourself; even curling up into a ball will get you a "resisting arrest" charge tacked on.
Posted by: An Observation at November 23, 2017 10:01 PM (E5WVf)

I gotta respectfully disagree here. The earlier argument was, by holding the office, one has some additional exposure to the law, because, you should know better. Not committing an act in the line of duty.

In other words, the on duty cop exposes himself to greater punishment because he is acting under the authority of his position. The off duty cop should not be charged more heavily than the civilian, just because he should know better.

The earlier argument that was made was, there is no need to read a judge his rights, he knows his rights. But just as ignorance of the law is no excuse, knowledge of the law should should not bear any additional exposure. We should be equal under the law, and the judge, committing a crime which has nothing to do with his office, should face the same punishment as anyone else.

I'm sure you disagree. Have as much or little fun as you like batting this around. I'm done, off to bed, so questions might as well be rhetorical.

If true, he more or less kept his end of the bargain.

154 For some reason, out of the blue, l am reminded of the "I Will Not Sit At The Kid's Table" Thanksgiving Day protest of 1968. Big extended family dinner. My assigned spot was at one of the "kid's tables". No way I was sitting with 3 - 8 year olds at kindergarden sized table/chairs and not get to hear any of the good stories my aunts and uncles told. T

hey probably wanted me to help maintain order with the little ones. If they had explained it that way I probably would have been OK with it but what they said was there wasn't any room at "the big tables". So I stood at the kitchen counter and ate (and heard the good stories). Never was seated at a kids table again. (I was 12.)

165 Just got home from sister's. After our first year back in Texas (Dist. 1, for any interested), where she quite literally wore herself out with a huge and elaborate feast, Mr. Empire and I tried to persuade her to scale it back. Last year was better, and she made it through with fewer problems. With a bit more persuasion, this year was quite reasonable, and she actually enjoyed it, thanking us for getting her to scale back even more.

172 I just think Bob Dylan doesn't want to get owned by anyone. He wants to do his thing, then move on to the next thing. When the Left wanted to own him and be their mouthpiece, he quit doing protest songs and became a rock star. When everyone started getting into his bag, he went to Woodstock and worked with The Band. Later on when he became a Christian and started doing his Gospel thing, the Born Again Crowd wanted him to be their mouthpiece, and he pulled back and tried to be commercial and make videos for MTV and tour with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and then do The Willbury's....

Now he's doing Sinatra. He hasn't written a real protest song since 19 fucking 63, but when he croaks, the first line of his obit is going to state that he was a "Protest Singer."

That's always a difficult proposition. Theoretically I have no issue with using force, up to and including deadly force, to resist unlawful violence from law enforcement. From a practical perspective, you can be almost certain that either a) you'll end up dead or in the hospital, or b) you'll go to prison if you survive the encounter. It's unusual for people to come out of that without charges, although it has happened a couple of times with no-knock unannounced Gestapo raids by SWAT.

I'd agree with that, he didn't want to get pegged or put into a box or whatever. There's a good interview and tunes by an early interview with Studs Terkal on YT, if you haven't heard it check it out. About 50 minutes.

Mom was PISSED because i was holding her and im taking blood thinners. But how do you not hold your beloved pet when they die? My sister brought up the very good point this was not the mares fault. She was dead before she hit the ground, and cant be held responsible for what happened after her heart stopped.

I'm not sure what game they had on, one of my brothers and my brother in law were watching in the family room while I had a dog show in the living room.

Off to soak in a tub full of hot water. Today, ugh. Ran register during first hour of the Wal-Mart rush. Then spent another hour or so after I was supposed to clock out pulling empty features to the back while trying not to crush the Shopping Reavers, then helping breaking the features down, and crushing the cardboard. And when I thought I could leave, turns out everyone in sporting goods went to lunch at same time so back on a register for me to make a few more sales.

So the tub seems a very good idea plus got a blister on a toe. And I have to be back at work tomorrow. *ugh*

Luckily for $40 Wal-Mart had a brand new all included, well save the propane, deep fryer deal. Sold quite a few of them, afraid to read tomorrow's paper to find out how many houses burned down because of these dyers were operated by idiots.

And luckily still the store did not explode this morning. Guy wanted a propane tank. So open cage to pull one tank out. Then I notice his wife is about a foot away puffing on her cancer stick. I kindly asked her to please move since.

284 My Mom's side did that, where the younger kids sat at a different table, but I'm the youngest of the gaggle so that was slowly going away.

My step-brother said once that he was really excited when he got to go to the adult table for the first time, until he got there and suddenly he had to mind his manners and it was no where near as much fun.

In a way it is a blessing for the kids, and the adults can talk and drink without interruptions.

286 Speaking of the homeless, one of the big issues in Arvada, CO this last election was what to do with the burgeoning homeless population. A crap ton of people moved to CO when they legalized marijuana. Most of them don't want to work, just lay about and get high. There seems to be more and more people hanging out on street corners with a "Homeless. Please Help." sign.

A Milwaukee woman trying to get a head-start on the Christmas shopping season paid $100 for a box of potatoes which she thought was an iPhone.

The scam was perpetrated by a man driving around her neighborhood in a black truck with balloons and a sign taped to it which read: "Black Friday sale."

When we had the circular "what do you give thanks for" thing, I did the usual "for family", then added "For the AOSHQ, because it's extended family."

Sister asked was that where I'd asked for prayers, and when I said yes, got thanks from her and the other sister.

Both are libs, but with only the three of us blood-related left, and two husbands ... we don't let that divide us. Politics in family gatherings are strictly taboo.

Moving in with him may be sooner than I planned. It will not be easy.

334 Slap, thanks for being the keeper of the prayer list.

I have a thanksgiving to report. My stepdaughter went on the prayer list last year because her dad and I got uninvited for Thanksgiving after the election. It seemed to bring out some disappointments in our family relationships.

Anyway, this year, not only were we invited for Thanksgiving, but my stepdaughter called me a few weeks ago for some spiritual support. She is feeling the call to renew her relationship with Christ and trust God more deeply. She is in academia, which generally doesn't foster the kind of humility for true faith.

It was very humbling that she trusts me enough to share her questions, doubts, and fears.

Anyway, things are going in a better direction and I hope she follows through in her spiritual growth.

I want to express my very deepest thanks to the Horde for caring about my concerns and supporting me and my family in your prayers, and I wanted you to know that God has heard you and answered.

May you receive His richest blessing in your lives.

I told him that we weren't interested, but because it was getting close to Christmas, the rookie thought he was going to get a deal. Brand New for only $40.00! Guy shows us one out of a box for what it looked like and the rookie fell for it hook line and sinker. I kept telling him not to do it, but he was ready. So guy takes his money and gives him a sealed box. We go in and eat, come back out to the truck and he decides to open it. He was the proud owner of two bricks taped to the box so they wouldn't move. I didn't say another word, but then, I really didn't have to.

341 Yet again, my oldest son and I blew the gravy. My MIL made the best damn giblet gravy in the entire world. She passed away in early 2009, and my oldest son and I have been trying to replicate it since then. (Both he and I worked as cooks for several years, me in fast food, him in much higher end places, so it's not like either of us are kitchen virgins.) We've come really close a couple of times, but otherwise, like today, it's been a complete disaster. We suspect that today's mistake was burning the roux. No matter what we did to it, it still tasted burnt. The rest of the family is getting really ticked at us for being such screw ups. Gah! I'm surprised they let us sit at the table with them, but there was an awful lot of kvetching.

I am kind of wondering if the secret to Mammaw's insanely good giblet gravy wasn't MSG. We have been trying to replicate it for years and I keep trying to remember how she made it and she almost always used a small brown bottle of something (does kitchen bouquet have MSG in it?) The richness/intensity of the flavor seems to be the missing link.

Posted by: Infidel at November 24, 2017 12:15 AM (Ix4M6)

366 Generally the taller ones will have more of the glass bubbles with the temperature tags. I would go with a 15 to 18 inch model. I got one for a birthday present and I loved it, right up until the cat knocked it off the bookcase and it broke. And they are reasonably accurate. The one's in the wooden case would be a little more break resistant I think. Also a little classier.

Guy even asked them to take the GoFund me page down b/c he felt it was too much money. But people still wanted to give money. So it went back up. 11 updates track the story.

So now, get this, he wants to donate to organizations that need help or have been overlooked.

The 2 people doing all this are not gonna dump the money on him, but guide him. He wants to work at Amazon. Amazon has reached out.

They posted pics of him when he was in the Marines. He was also a paramedic. But when he got back from the war his marriage didn't survive.

Anyway, it's just such an uplifting story, and I cry at those...yea, well..shut up. Don't much cry for self, but these ones get me.

========

I've advocated against bullying and abuse of turkeys all my life. I've no recollection of the event in question, although I cannot tell you how sorry I am that my actions were interpreted by the turkey to be demeaning and abusive, and for that I feel truly ashamed. I will make it a point to reflect upon my life and try to do better. I think turkeys always ought to be believed when they make such claims, otherwise we risk silencing their voices.

408 Wonkette (stumbled on to her site accidentally from the sidebar) claims Franken's "apology" was for "wield[ing] power in a way that made someone with less of it uncomfortable." Got that scalding take?

She also says, "We need to hear...more people like Al Franken...he's handling this with ... dignity and respect..."

And most hilariously, "You are in for a world of disappointment over the next few weeks if you thought that predatory dudes could be identified by their stated politics."

Of course she actually CAN if she's running with the safe money odds.

Flipped around the dial after dinner and two local stations were updating us on a much needed update of the allegations against Moore. Keep us informed.

434 Nope. No MSG. A sprinkle of Kitchen Bouquet if the gravy was too pale. The old girl was straight off the farm and didn't hold with novelties like MSG. (Of course, she was such a great cook she didn't need it in the first place.)

Followed the oral recipe to the letter. One tablespoon of flour to one tablespoon of turkey grease. Stir into nicely browned roux, dump in chopped up cooked gizzard and liquid gizzard was simmered in, followed by small additions of water until appropriate consistency. Also included all fond from bottom of pan to add flavor and color. Some salt and pepper. We think we burned the roux.

Oldest son worked for a while in a Cajun-style restaurant. Claims he had to make really dark roux because it turned much paler when actually used for cooking. I was off in living room teaching youngest grandson the chorus to The Witchdoctor song while daughter screamed at me that the smoke alarms were going to go off at any moment. I assumed oldest son was smart enough and experienced enough to know when to add the giblets and broth. My bad. But it was really important that youngest grandson learn the chorus from the Witchdoctor song. It's a major component of American culture!

At Christmas, we will not make the roux so dark -- if we are allowed anywhere near the kitchen. Youngest son, who has watched entirely too much Elton Brown, says he's going to do it. Hell, we won't even let him make the green bean casserole or the mashed potatoes.

Same here. Born in TX, raised here as much as an Army brat could be, and I never heard of "chicken spaghetti" until today.

In my house, if we don't have turkey for Thanksgiving, it's prime rib. In which case we have turkey for Christmas. And I am the only one in the family who eats rice as a side...but then, I'm the only one in the family that eats rice at all.

443 My friend down in NC had a bad start to Thanksgiving. Her female friend had an older woman who lived with her. (Her friend's husband had died this past New Year's.) She was having trouble breathing since the weekend and decided Thursday morning to take her to the ER. When my friend's friend asked her to buckle up, she was unresponsive. Called 9/11 and they told her to get her out of the car and begin CPR. (The woman was on the heavy side and her friend said that if they hadn't been lifting weights the last year, she would never have been able to get her out of the truck.) My friend got a call that she died on the ground while giving CPR. EMS came, got a pulse back and took her to the hospital but the woman's niece, a nurse, told the hospital she had a DNR, so she died. My friend had gone to the house, then drove her to the hospital as she was in no shape to drive. My friend had to finally drag her friend out of the hospital because there was nothing she could do. Brought the friend home where she polished off a small bottle of wine, then fed her so she wouldn't be inebriated on her drive back home.

Not a great way to 'celebrate' although I guess the lesson here is that if one is to be thankful for anything, it's being alive, all bitching about the pitfalls and troubles of life notwithstanding.

While I'm 110% behind him on this, he really should clean up his own back yard. SC does have CCW permits, but their recognition of other states permits is pretty thin. Think you actually have to own land in South Carolina before they'll let you have a CCW.

While I'm 110% behind him on this, he really should clean up his own back yard. SC does have CCW permits, but their recognition of other states permits is pretty thin. Think you actually have to own land in South Carolina before they'll let you have a CCW.

120% dead set against congress passing a law.
What Congress gives, Congress can take away.
We already have national reciprocity.

Article IV, Section 1
Full Faith and Credit shall be given in each State to the public Acts, Records, and judicial Proceedings of every other State. And the Congress may by general Laws prescribe the Manner in which such Acts, Records and Proceedings shall be proved, and the Effect thereof.

Is a Bill which states the Congress Recognizes that the Constitutional Right already exists.... and should be interpreted in this manner.

Then get it signed by the President...

Then just LET some F'n Judge try to over ride BOTH other coequal branches of the Government.

Because what you're doing, reading the law, and expecting people to follow the law, is not how DC works.

Cultural Marxism, i.e. Liberalism works like this: First, determine who the "victim" is though feelz. Then twist, torture, ignore and rewrite the law so the "victim" wins.

It's got nothing to do with a representative republic and everything to do with the tyranny of our betters in black robes, 'cause they're the wisest, wokest most justice giving folks, dontchya know.

So my Thanksgiving Day eating has been,1) coffee this morning, 2) soup for lunch and 3) a piece of pumpkin pie, later.

Given the weather and temperature, I suggested to Her Majesty that today would be the best day this weekend for a major scrubdown of the pens and grooming area in the kennel. Eight hours of hauling everything out, vacuuming, scrubbing, power washing and hauling stuff back in later, we got the grooming area and four of the six pens finished. Neither one of us wants anything further except painkillers.

Last two pens scheduled for Saturday. Thanksgiving dinner scheduled for Sunday. Just another weekend at Schloss Hadrian.

No! Despite the deceptive first sentence. They state the following:

In large cities like London, cooking fat is known to be responsible for 10 per cent of small particles in the air, so researchers believe frying food could have a noticeable impact on cloud formation and rainy weather.

In fact, the effect is so large it could even have a cooling effect on the planet, and potentially slow down global warming.



They felt obligated to mention it, they slip it in, but they do not want to emphasize it for obvious reasons. They don't want people to think they can eat delicious food *and* combat global warming at the same time. But according to cutting edge research, eating bacon, fries and shrimp tempura can combat global warming.

I am in a supper club with about eight couples, we rotate homes. We were at my lawyers home, drinking the shit out of his booze. At about 10 PM, he comes down in his bathroom and PJs and says good night.

We stayed for another hour, just to piss him off AND the next time we had the dinner at his place we all wore PJ to the dinner.

Superior is brutally rough in a gale. Ore boats (they're 600-800 feet long) are actually rather lightly built, not true ocean going vessels. The lake got rough enough, and the keel probably snapped, loaded with thousands of tons of iron ore.

It took 8 hours to drive from DC to OBX instead of the normal 6, so I'm very glad that I didn't have to throw myself into cooking this morning. When we picked up our dinner this morning it did not look like enough food, but we had plenty and leftovers. I forgot the dinner came with a prime rib, which was really delicious. Everyone was very happy with the meal.

And I'm very thankful that Hillary Clinton is not president.

Family gathering at restaurant, BIL and I go out to smoke on the deck, looking out on Lake Erie. Get to joking about jobs your parents set you up for. My dad's best friend was a lodge brother with Captain McSorley. All I had to do was go down and sign papers, and I'd have been cabin boy. On the Edmund Fitzgerald.

Haha we laugh. And the waitress having stepped out to burn a quick one beside us says "Yeah, my dad was on that ship."
What a tiny town East Toledo is. What a tiny lake, Erie is. How hard it is, trying to crawl into the woodwork of the smoking deck at the Inn, there.

------
1975 at (b) 0000 and (c) 1200 UTC; and (d) 11 Nov 1975 at 0000 UTC. Cold frontal boundaries are in
blue, warm frontal boundaries are in red, and occluded frontal boundaries are in purple. Isobars are
shown every 4 hPa.
AMERICAN METEOROLOGICAL SOCIETY MAY 2006 | 609
northeast to near James Bay and strengthened to
978 hPa (Fig. 1d). The pressure gradient tightened
over Lake Superior during this time and northwest
winds intensified.
At 2139 UTC 10 November 1975, the U.S. Coast
Guard Station in Grand Marais, Michigan, advised the
Edmund Fitzgerald that the radio beacon at Whitefish
Point was not functioning. The Edmund Fitzgerald
communicated with the Arthur M. Anderson at
2238 UTC to help it set the proper heading, toward a
position approximately 4 km east of Whitefish Point.
Between 2200 and 2230 UTC, Captain McSorley
communicated with the pilot on the northbound
Swedish vessel Avafors. During their communication,
the master of the Edmund Fitzgerald indicated to the
Avafors that the ship was listing badly, had lost both
radars, and was taking heavy seas over the deck in one
of the worst seas he had ever encountered.
The Arthur M. Anderson continued to follow
the Edmund Fitzgerald and provide navigational
assistance as the ships headed toward Whitefish
Bay during the early evening hours of 10 November
1975. At 0000 UTC 11 November 1975, the Arthur
M. Anderson advised the Edmund Fitzgerald that it
was 16 km ahead and about 2 km east of the Arthur
M. Anderson. The Arthur M. Anderson informed
the Edmund Fitzgerald of northbound traffic approximately
14 km ahead of the Edmund Fitzgerald at
0010 UTC. It was at this time
that Captain McSorley, when
asked about the ship’s problems,
indicated “We are holding
our own.” This marked
the final radiotelephone conversation
between the two
ships, and there was no radar
contact with the Edmund
Fitzgerald when the Arthur M.
Anderson’s radar was checked
again at 0020 UTC.

Blowback

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

You know, progressives sure do have a poor understanding of the whole 'equality under the law' thing that our country was founded upon.

Exhibit A:


You know, Weinstein, the ex-Gawker journalist, probably makes more money than I do, and undoubtedly has a louder voice than me and my 197 Twitter followers. Does this mean I can kill him and take his stuff? You know, because of the hypocrisy?

With all of the blowblack the left has been getting lately from the Sexual Harassment Apocalypse, based on rules they themselves put in place (that they never believed could be used against them), you'd think they'd realize they had better start being very careful about what they're saying.

Just saying.

What Congressman? Is there some "story" out there about which I am just oblivious?

I'm serious when I say the twitverse is turning humanity into idiots. There are things happening outside of it, but many of its practitioners don't seem to know that.

It's possible there is a story that broke, and it has escaped twitverse, and if so, then I'm the one who is oblivious.

I'm okay with the 'revenge porn' laws.

I'm also okay with prosecuting whatever woman sought to embarrass a sitting CongressCritter out of spite. I'm also okay with prosecuting some jerk-off creep ex-boyfriend who posts nakids of his ex-girlfriend to embarrass her.

But let's make sure the law is enforced equally and no leftist judge has his big fat thumb on the scales of justice.

This has to be a 'get out the checkbook and write a lot of numbers' type of offense.

73 Statutes are not and ought not to be power-neutral

- Adam Weinstein (@AdamWeinstein) November 22, 2017


As misguided as Weinstein is in this statement, there is an underlying point (different from what he's trying to say) - Those who make or enforce the laws ought to be held to higher standards of those laws.

Equality under the law refers to those of us who have to live under the laws. Those who make those laws and enforce them ought to receive stiffer penalties for violating them than I would.

This has nothing to do with different sets of laws for different people, which is the silliness that Weinstein was going after. The same law .. but, say, judges who break a law should receive no less than twice the sentence I would receive for breaking the same law. Those holding legal power need to be held to higher legal standards. That is only reasonable and fair.

86 Texas has a law against revenge porn.

Posted by: no good deed at November 23, 2017 03:45 PM (eIQHF)


Revenge porn should only be illegal if it was illegally obtained. If someone snapped a picture of his dick and sent it to some girl then he gave up all rights to it. If, however, she secretly snapped a photo of his pecker while he was asleep, or otherwise unaware, then that is "illegal revenge porn".

The law should not be about covering for people's idiotic decisions and bizarre behavior.

89 Sharing naked pics of a sitting congressman when he specifically tells you not to...that goes a little further than plain old revenge porn. That sounds to me like blackmail of politician and representative of our government.

He did not mean for this to go public. So what if he is old or a man? If this were a woman, everyone would be freaking out right now. Instead, everyone is laughing at an old guy and his naked photos.

Yeah, real funny, people.

He did not intend for these to go out in public. He sent them to someone who WANTED them. You can call into judgment his decision to make these pictures and date this woman, but he did nothing illegal. If the voters in his district don't like his poor judgment they can vote him out.

Meanwhile, the woman should be arrested and charged. For some reason the press is treating the woman like the victim here and making fun of the congressman. Really classy, folks.

I do not like this stuff happening at all. EVERYONE has some kind of embarrassment in their past. Be it a bad date, naked pics, words said at a young age, what have you. I do not like the press using such embarrassments to go after a sitting politician.

CRIMES and MISCONDUCT in OFFICE are a different story...and Conyers, Franken, etc. fall under that category.

Yes, I do. The law is the law, actions are actions. Who you are shouldn't matter. Ever.

If you think it's worse for one person to do it than another, then write a different law to cover that. So if a cop beats you up, he's guilty of assault, and if such a law exists, he's also guilty of misusing his power.

But your assault is the same whether I do it or he does it.

And now, with that, I'm out. So please don't fret too much over this. We're probably arguing semantics as much as anything.

Well, this is vindictive and slimy of her and if the law exists, he has every right to take advantage of it.

That said, I'm kind of conflicted about this kind of law. If you're pissed at someone and reveal some confidential information (like ID type info), or slander them, that should be actionable. But this isn't really slander or even anything akin to doxing. It's a visual equivalent of roasting someone in a public forum. But he's a public figure in any case.

110 "Yer ancient Greek homos, on the other, felt that a Big One was a way to make a man look silly."

The Greeks had a type of statue that was just a guy's head on a pedestal -- with genitals carved into the pedestal. One politician was exiled after he was accused of leading an over night campaign of vandalism chipping off the genitals of the statues.

Mike-O whilst chiseling: "Oops! Uh oh."

"Well crap, I had this statue finished except for that last part. I believe I can still salvage it and there's just enough marble there if I can keep the proportions just right, it'll just be a little bit smaller..."

"Maybe no one will notice. It was pretty cold that day."

112 But your assault is the same whether I do it or he does it.

Posted by: BurtTC at November 23, 2017 04:05 PM (Pz4pT)


No, it's not the same. The assault is not just a crime against an individual but a crime against society. This is abundantly clear because it is not the individual's decision to try the person for the crime, it is society's. This is why you can't ask someone to kill you. Even though you want it and consider it no crime, it's still illegal ... because the crime is not about you, it's about the act, in general.

When an officer of the court, for instance, violates the law that is more egregious than when a lay person does. That is just clear.

Of course, your argument leads to silliness like a cop having to be Mirandized when he's arrested ... as if any reasonable person would think that a cop is unaware of his rights as a suspect.



So, let's make this easy, if a judge is arrested and confesses, but was not Mirandized, should his confession be thrown out because he "wasn't made aware of his Constitutional rights"?

What they seem to mean is attacking innocent Republicans is virtuous. But exposing crooked Democrats is vile.

The MFM now loves the moral equivalence game of putting Trump/Moore in the same category as Clinton/Weinstein and the other actual molesters/rapists.

As I see it, Trump bragged about "getting right down to business" in kissing/grabbing women that were there expressly to hook up with the star. I would guess Trump had plenty to choose from, and at least spoke a little, had some "trial closes" as indicators, before trying to "close the deal".

That is nothing like Weinstein having women left with him, as an assistant exits and leaves her stranded, or other more aggressive "strategies".

But of course the MFM is at war, they will play the band hand dealt them by their team of rapists and molesters, and keep attacking and doing the "but Trump was worse" thing.

The big "scandal" seems to boil down to the rather obvious fact that a 30-something guy wanted to find a younger wife.

It's an obvious fact because he did, indeed in the end land a younger wife . . . whom he's been married to for 30+ years now.

FREAK OUT, EVERYBODY!

If I could assign sentences, people like this and Rene Boucher should be flogged with a cat-o-nine tails until their backs are bloody, and then left to rot in prison for 10 years.

These assholes must have the lesson driven home to them that it is not ok to walk up to random people and assault and abuse them.

34 knowing You-Tube craziness it is possible that wild child scene was staged ... but could be real. It kinda went from zero to sixty in like two seconds ... (and someone is laughing at it all)

kid says nice things, then insults Dad
... OK, Dad -- stand -- say your "not part of family" line
... OK, kid go nuts, toss the table (on those you just said you liked)

But it captures the intent of Schumer handing out bullet points on how to destroy Thanksgiving Dinner.

44 Called my 97 years young mom today. #ThankfulFor being able to call her today!!

Asked her if she got the holiday she asked for: no TDay at her house as usual).

She said, even with everyone else doing the work, she had to be, you know, up and sociable for a week before and a week after for the usual large family dinner. She's a bit wistful, but happy to be lying around in her bathrobe today.

We'll still have a turkey sandwich with her this weekend. And pie.

She watched the Macy's parade but said she didn't see any protesters. Good.

I think we can start having, at the front of any parade, National Guardsmen and water cannons.

45 Mine from previous thread.

Turkey (12 lb) in oven, bag method, at 2 to be ready 4-430 or so.
Cranberries and pie done last night. Stuffing to fix in a while to go in
the oven with the turkey. Then mashed potatoes.

Just my wife and I so there will be a lot of leftovers. Love turkey sandwiches.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

There is no food on table except when we are eating.

Team Salty, looking at entry routes; parking; paths to the treasures. Plotting to evade shoppers, get the fast checkout line and go to the next target. Get the loot, and escape the madness.

Shopping; spousal therapy.

84 Meremortal, no prosecutions, no peace! Good plan. Easier than mine.

My plan would be to take the top gossip in every North Korean town and city neighborhood, load them all on one day in a number of Boeing 777s and give them a limo to an individual food store. All over the US.

The ones from Pyongyang go to Whole Foods.

Give them $500 to shop with. Fly them back to North Korea, with the food in C-17s equipped with freezers, and give them the food. Cheaper than 3 CV(N)s and their battlegroups.

Well, maybe it disappointed Christopher Lee. From imdb:

"Philippe Mora, the film's director, has said that star Christopher Hall felt that fellow actors Reb Brown and Annie McEnroe were so bad in their parts that Lee was often off-set frequently in a way as if he were "wishing himself away" from being in the film."

94 Okay, so my first Thanksgiving dinner on my own is coming out great. The turkey is tasty. I've learned a couple of lessons, like a little less salt and use the pan drippings to moisten the cornbread dressing instead of assembling it ahead of time with chicken stock. So far, so good.

Hah! My step-brother had one of the main roles in that turd. I remember when I went to see it in the theater, the second and third reels mixed up and the movie made no sense at all.


Later when I saw it in order it still didn't make much sense. Step-bro's acting opportunities were pretty thin after that.

115 54 I'm still trying to get my rescued cat, Lexi, to stop jumping& sitting on kitchen table. J. J. Sefton told me to have water bottle & spray her with it. It worked for a few days, but I have sprayed her 5x at 1x this am & she kept it up. She was not happy with me, but she still would not stop.

Spread some clingy plastic wrap out, then place duct tape strips, sticky side up, on and around the saran wrap.

Then ignore the cat.

If all goes well, cat jumps up, skitters on saran wrap, steps in duct tape, get more saran wrap static cling, etc.

Ignore cat.

The Morning Rant: J.V. Edition

punk-monkey.jpg

There is some old lady in a pants suit sitting in a puddle of her own urine, drinking from a bottle of bourbon and muttering something about a "vast right-wing conspiracy." I think I'll throw some poo at her!

Kurt Schlichter nails it with this column. But one in particular makes me smile....
Seven Things Conservatives Should Be Thankful For

No. 1: Be Thankful That Hillary Is Not Our President.

The other ones are important too, but this one makes me smile on this beautiful, crisp, clear morning. I am sitting with a cup of good coffee, ahead of my cooking schedule, thinking about the tough fight we all have ahead of us. It's not going to be easy; saving America from those who would destroy it, but we took a big step last November, and it no longer looks quite so dire.

Enjoy the day, eat and drink too much, poke fun at your liberal relatives, and rejoice that we live in a truly exceptional country.

I recall seeing some article somewhere about the guy who liked to paint pics of gals with their drawers falling down. I don't know his name, and the paintings always contained some guy who happened to be looking at just the right moment. She'd be carrying a bag of groceries or something, and the bag would be falling... and down went her drawers! Like they do.

Anyhoo, that's what that painting reminds me of.

Yes. Yes they do. They're fully grown adults with all the powers of observation and reasoning the rest of us have.

They actively chose Her Heinous and all the bad things she'd do to further destroy the country. Bronco Bama hisself said she'd be the continuation of his Reign of Error and she wholeheartedly agreed.

I don't cut them any slack. They know exactly what they're doing. They are anti-American Progressives, aka American Communists. As such, they have no business in politics nor should they be anywhere near the levers of power in any capacity. They are our enemies.

We need to do everything we can to destroy the Progressive Movement (although it's doing a pretty good job of imploding all by itself these days) before it destroys us. There is no middle ground and no compromise with those who hate us.

85 Happy Thanksgiving to my online, virtual, and highly suspect family!

I am thankful for so many things, too numerous to completely list. Still thankful for the fifteen years we had with our beloved Jack The Dog, who passed one year ago today, on his fifteenth birthday, bless him. Thankful my college daughter is here with us, healthy now and happier, after a rough year where the college medical system decided to 'treat' her depression with an array of drugs, instead of realizing it was the environment, stupid. And grateful that daughter, who is experimenting with utopian campus Marxism, still has the class not to engage in open argu-warfare with her dad, who fought real Marxism every freaking day of his life. Instead, she has the smarts to find common ground (music, culture, humor) with her fuddy-duddy parents, and to enjoy the holiday. And i am grateful for son, who has entered the workforce, and may miss dinner - responsibilities have burdens, after all. a good boy becoming a good man. and most of all, i am grateful for wifey, who has put up with me for all this time.

Bless you all.

I think you had a problem before with that. I got enough in my line to be a nuisance and I had to take about a gallon out of my line to get about a cupful of water out.

Thank you for posting that Slap. Prayers for all the horde. Many of them are struggling under very tough circumstances.

To put our troubles in perspective, consider that NK soldier who was shot 5 times crossing the DMZ. If he has any family, they are dead or being tortured.

I read Barbara Demick's book Nothing To Envy a few months ago. It's a great depiction of the conditions that ordinary non-elite Norks live under. They are literally slaves, forced to work in order to have a small amount of poor quality food handed to them each week. Every block has its spies and any thoughtless comment can result in days of interrogation, if not a stint in a labor camp. It's hell on Earth.

I have always been grateful for the incredible standard of living that we enjoy as Americans, but that book really renewed my appreciation for the amazing system that yields such bounty.

It also increased my contempt for the assholes on the Left who are either power-mad or oblivious, and would impose a similar regime on us if they could.

My dad, who had a cardiac arrest due to low potassium caused by his BP meds is home from the hospital, the rehab and feeling pretty good, except for low stamina and residual pain from CPR. He's 90 years old and my brothers and I are lucky he's still around. He's over being pissed off about being revived. I told him that if God had meant him to die, he wouldn't have been playing Bridge with an RN and a CPR instructor. He agrees. My brothers will be here for dinner in a few hours and everything is perking along in the kitchen.

I also have a new great-nephew, just about a month old. He's the first of his kind, although I have hopes for more down the line.

May God bless you all as he has blessed my family this year.

The other problem is many of the putative leaders on "our" side aren't. They support many of the globalist shibboleths -- frequently only objecting over utilitarian concerns such as the price tag of the "Prog" utopia. The election of Trump has certainly caused a lot of masks to fall.

A big regret of mine is that I voted for Shrub #2, Mittens and Juan McVain during the past presidential elections. Fvkc those guys in particular; the GOPe never gets my vote again. Better an honest foe to the front than an unreliable "ally" behind.

164 Schlichter's always amusing, and that column is good, but even he stumbles on the Moore thing. If plausible yet non-credible allegations of behavior from decades before, lacking any evidence, and absent any pattern of similar behavior or even allegations in a life-time of contentious campaigns, is sufficient to knock someone from a race .... then every candidate Kurt would ever support can and will be dispatched from public life effortlessly.


Of course he's also wrong about guns preventing authoritarians from compelling behavior by "normals". He lives in the LA area, I think. Every part of his life - and especially that concerning guns - features compulsion by his adversaries.


All of Kurt's guns won't allow him to buy ammo at market prices starting in six weeks, or without a special state ID. The list of handguns he can readily buy is shrinking all the time. He can't conceal carry (most likely). And he's paying the new gas tax right now, and subsidizing idiocies like solar power and high-speed rail every day.

I don't pray for specific persons to win as i don't pray for my favorite football/baseball team to win, just that they so their best. The night before the election I prayed to God that the best person to lead our nation would be elected. I believe He gave us President Trump to be that person. I am thankful!

Agree with you on Roy Moore. What do we have now, after several weeks of non-stop "revelation"? That he is accused of having sex with precisely zero of the "complainants", and of "inappropriately touching" just one, who is the least credible of the lot.
Seems to me that these "dates" were not so much overtures to sex as they were interviews with prospects for the position of wife, and the "complainants" were found wanting in some way, or else rejected Moore as potential husband material (and may now regret having done so). After all, he did eventually marry a woman who was as much younger than him at the time of the wedding as these girls were at the time of the "dates".
Roy Moore is a very smart man. I really doubt he was boinking teenagers at all; the risks are simply too high, and he would sure to know that. If he was sowing any wild oats, it was probably with older women. "An old woman don't tell, an old woman don't swell, and she's grateful as Hell." (song lyric)

Isn't this why the NK/Chinesse troops ate garlic during (and probably after) the Korean conflict? To keep the parasites at bay?

If Moore is acquitted by the only judge and jury that matters -- the voters of Alabama -- and Mitch is shown to have been cahoots with WaPo, then Mitch should swing for it.

I just finished Michael Connolly's latest Harry Bosch book, The Wrong Side of Goodbye. He always has a little bit in there about Bosch having been a tunnel rat in 'Nam. In this one he explained to his daughter why he would never eat Vietnamese food. Said he'd had to eat it for his entire tour because his life in the tunnels depended on him smelling like one of them.

188 A couple of months ago, I found out I had a half sister I never knew about who had been looking for me for 10 years. Our father left when I was a kid and moved back to his country (Italy), and I hadn't heard from him in 30 years until my sister found me on Facebook.

After a few weeks of talking it became obvious that she was more interested in acting like my father's lawyer than in being my sister. She kept trying to justify and excuse all his abusive actions in the past, and when I tried to explain to her what he did to me and my mom, she suggested I didn't know anything because I was too young, despite the fact that all this happened before she was even fucking born, and I didn't get it by hearsay like she did from her father, I LIVED through his abuse. And she's saying it never happened. Apparently my father returned, and spread lies about me and my mom to his relatives, then continued to lie for 30 years, and they all lapped it up.

In that time I helped her get a U.S. passport, sent an expensive gift for her birthday, and even went so far as to get the details needed so her father could get another pension. In all that, she did nothing for me except to start treating me with contempt because I wouldn't reconcile with her father, something I would have been open to doing if he could have just stopped being such a lying shit and own up to the truth.

I asked her to drop it and focus on our relationship. Then her father had a second stroke, and she suggested in her email that his stroke was due to the pain of my rejection.

I tried to make it work, but it was clear she was never going to listen to me, so I said my goodbyes and told her to go fuck herself (in the nicest way possible).

This Thanksgiving I am thankful that I only have family members that love me for who I am and are avid Trump fans. The rest can go scratch.

198 Meremortal, your geography is useful. My favorite x-country ski place outside Quebec (or Norway, if I ever get there) is Devil's Thumb, just north of Winter Park. YMCA of the Rockies, nearby, is good too. So maybe I'll be able to get good local intel on conditions from you.


X-C skiing, far more than alpine, is utterly dependent on conditions. There's a narrow window of conditions that are worth traveling for, as opposed to just heading outside, if you live there. And being where I am in SoCal, travel is always involved.

Had a underground tank at my parents old house. Hadn't been used in years and unless you knew where to look you'd never known it was there, but I was trying to sell the house and I made the absolutely stupid mistake of mentioning it. The downside was several months worth of paperwork and setting up the work to get it dug out, and ponying up the 12,000 to do it.

The upside was that at least after I was finished I could apply (and did) to have the majority of that reimbursed from the state government. I think I ended up only spending $500 bucks, plus my time.

And that's great about your location. If somehow I do manage to get up there this season, I'll certainly look to you for conditions info.

No, the key to perfect pie crust is in the dairy section of your grocery store. All rolled up neatly, wrapped and boxed. You throw it into your shopping cart, perhaps even pay for it.

When you want to use it you snip off the end of the wrapper, leave it on your counter for ten minutes, then unroll it. Easy as pie.

Is it more expensive than home-made? Well, depends if you paid for it, of course. But compared to the cost of flour and lard? Yeah. Somewhat. But it's so damn easy and perfect.

246 Had a underground tank at my parents old house.
Hadn't been used in years and unless you knew where to look you'd never
known it was there, but I was trying to sell the house and I made the
absolutely stupid mistake of mentioning it. The downside was several
months worth of paperwork and setting up the work to get it dug out, and
ponying up the 12,000 to do it.

The upside was that at least
after I was finished I could apply (and did) to have the majority of
that reimbursed from the state government. I think I ended up only
spending $500 bucks, plus my time.

If the law were rational on the matter, there would the option of having the tank sucked dry (really, really dry, as verified by videocam), and then filled with water/bentonite slurry. Would cost way less than digging it out.

But these days, if your only choice for heat is heating oil, then an above-ground double-walled tank is the best option.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at November 23, 2017 01:19 PM (oPNmq)


I'm not sure what my 'best' options are. Have oil now. No natural gas line anywhere around. Plenty of solar available. The heat-pump water heating units look interesting.

But the devil is always in the details. Look for the details on solar and the heat-pump units. Almost impossible to find.

It's almost as if an 'educated consumer' is not who they want to sell to.

Some people in this area just crack 'em open, then fill with cement. Seems the cheapest option. Any residual oil may weaken the cement from 4,000 psi down to maybe 3,500 psi but it ain't goin' nowhere.

I expect most of them have leaked, and contaminated the soil a little. BFD. There are bacteria in the soil that will eat up the oil, which is basically harmless, anyway. If there isn't a dead zone around the tank, with no vegetation, and you remove the source of the leak, namely residual oil in the tank, then there never will be a dead zone, and the soil will remediate itself, over decades.

--I completely agree with the sentiment of that blog post.

In my high-flying travelling days I had (and still do) a felt fedora that was awesome. Despite its thickness it helped me stay cool in the sun, and was so strong it worked in the rain. It got nothing but compliments. I forgot it one time at a cafe in the Lake District, and of course I made my way back to get it. The hostess there, in an absurdly charming accent, joked "We sold it for thirty pounds," before returning it to me.

Now if I wore it I'd probably look like a (bigger) dick.

Yes, in Grand Junction there is seemingly an entire square block park across from the PD. Homeless and non begging all year long. Rarely is anyone arrested and they are all fed by the "do-gooders."

41 Rickl,
When I had my minor heart attack last November and finally got the EOB's many months latter....they billed my insurance about $125,000 and the insurance paid about $95,000. I wound up about $15,000 out of pocket because of our high deductible and the fact that my rehab didn't start until January so a whole new deductible. I finally got the final bill for the remaining balance, about $3000 and just told them I'd make payments and they were good with that.
So, I'm thankful for being alive.

I just want to add a little tip.
When you next buy garlic , peel all of the garlic and drop them into your olive oil. They flavor the oil and when you need garlic they can be fished out and used in cooking. An older Italian woman does this and I thought it was a really good idea! She puts the oil and garlic in a semi shallow plastic bowl and keeps it in the refrigerator.

61 Some of the local urban turkeys are huge. 30-36" tall, I believe.

(Yes, we have wild turkey roamingAsheville. Also deer, and occasionally a bear or coyote on the outskirts. One of the nice things about this place.)

62 gobble gobble to all you gobblers of the horde

Turkeys used to be abundant here 15 years ago. Two were coming up over a hill and I snuck around the other side to surprise them. They saw me and buried their heads in some tufts of grass. I knew right where they went but couldn't see them at all. They took off when I was like ten feet from them.

Three trail cams have been out in the woods for a week, but I bet I don't have a single turkey on them. Deer, raccoons, squirrels and rabbits, maybe the blue heron or bobcats and coyotes. Will check a little later.

happy Thanksgiving ... thankful for the Pilgrims' progress.

69 Right after Irma we had a flock of seven turkeys that were hanging around the back yard for a couple of weeks. There were two adult hens, two adolescents, and three chicks. I would sit on the back porch with my coffee and have a gaggle of turkey faces staring at me.

They seem to have moved on since the coyotes came back.

A few years back I was able to vacation a couple times at a large ranch in that area that some relative had an interest in - 5000 acres all inside one fence.

We'd drive around the ranch roads in an old pickup, and it was the only place I've been where it was routine to come over a little hill and see a flock of 50 - 60 wild turkeys running off at our approach. The ranch hand said there were several flocks like that on the grounds.

98 On the turkey habitat change ...

some people blame the bobcats, we have more of them now and they hunted some this year. But not many are hunting raccoons (lower price on hides) and they are overpopulated. I think that is more likely, or both. (some say the coons eat more corn than the deer)

The habitat hasn't changed much ... though bush honeysuckle has taken over many woods, which may indeed crowd out a lot of other food sources.

Several really big storms have blown through also over the last five years ... took down a lot of trees, which opens the canopy, so that bush honeysuckle is worse than ever. A lot of woods are choked with the stuff.

It also says the name turkey is derived from Eastern or Indian (dot not feather) sources, perhaps because Columbus thought he had reached India.

163 I've traced my genealogy to a William Hilton who came on one of the first ships (Speedwell?) in 1620-something. He makes me a very distant cousin to President George Washington, with whom I share a Grampa.

The mascots for the Catholic HS my oldest two attended are the *Crusaders*. Some leftist heathens petitioned the board to change the name for all the well-known BS reasons.

Big fuss - the parents and school board crushed them like the pis-ants they are.

Crusaders it remains - AND they added a sword to the crusader logo just to underscore how the parish feels about the whole thing.

226 Late to the thread. Dang!

I like the humor in this one, especially as it probably wouldn't be allowed (hate that word in this context) today. So different from his family Thanksgiving painting we've all seen. Now I wonder how many would get the allusion.

One thing that made me smile was the way Rockwell painted the background. It has a definite Bob Ross feel to the technique. And against the dark trees, the young boy's face and expression really stand out. It would be easy for any viewer to start imagining a children's story ti go with the painting.

Thanks to Ace, the COBs, and Horde who make this site possible and fun. I hope everyone can enjoy the day.

http://tinyurl.com/ya8qhlf6

Single unnamed "source" with unverifiable pernicious claims woven around other nothingburgers which sound reasonable and some can be verified.

Those who were arrested have worked with and paid money to the international left, our own domestic left, Democrats, and terrorists. Arresting them has interrupted the money flow. Their bank records have all the information needed and the new Saudi center looking into terror financial crimes would through the US have those records.

This piece is a PR op. to try to get that money flowing again by bringing down the new Crown Prince before he gets a good foothold on power there.

Yeah, I know what you mean. It's sad that those who fight for the right reasons are the ones who wind up getting killed, ala Europe in WWI.

Another ponderable thing is the nature vs nurture argument. As much as I absolutely loathe the progressive leftards, they will fight to protect their ideology, as wrong, misguided and contrary to All Things Good as it is. Now, if we could just direct their fervor towards good things, we'd be fine.

Too bad we can't brainwash them with teh good things, since they seem to be so susceptible to allowing others to do their thinking for them.

Posted by: FenelonSpoke at November 23, 2017 11:04 AM (8+Ozj)


According to the Reynold's site,

Q Is it ok to cook a turkey in a convection oven with an oven bag?
A Yes, if it is a full-size convection oven. Countertop size convection ovens (like the size of a microwave oven) are too small and the bag may touch the sides or the heating element and melt. When using a convection oven, reduce the recommended oven temperature by 25 degrees and roast for the same amount of time. Always preheat the oven before using an oven bag and never exceed 400 degrees.

Cook it on the regular setting. The turkey is shielded from the moving air, so convection won't do anything, and it might damage the bag.

309 Cheri, I did not know that, either. My heart goes out to you, especially on this holiday. {{{{{}}}}}

I think I saw a wild turkey sitting on top of a mailbox once. I only
caught a glimpse out of the corner of my eye as I was driving. I wasn't
expecting it, and it was one of those "did I really just see that?"
moments. I suppose it could have been a decoration.

I saw a big one, a hen, I think, as it didn't have much in the way of comb or wattles, just strolling across the southbound lanes of I-15 near Cascade, MT, round about Nov. 5. There was next to no traffic, she probably made it OK.

312 I need a clever kid like that to show me how to make
my iPhone work after Apple downloaded updates to it last night. They
came in my damn house and fiddled with my cellphone. While I was
sleeping!

Somehow, it needs to be written into the Consumer Protection Act that automatic updates of software in any consumer-owned device, be it Fitbit or Cadillac are flat-out illegal, and vendor must provide notification first, and then seek permission. And no "implied" permission.

313 FWIW I've roasted or baked cauliflower and enjoyed
it. I've also grilled cauliflower rounds and thought it was actually
very good.

Hollywood always casts hot babes to play the roles of women who were plain or homely in real life. I'm sure they'd pick somebody like Sandra Bullock to play Helen Thomas, if the occasion arose.

The Morning Report 11/23/17

conyerswaters.jpg

Good morning kids. Thanksgiving day is here. I'll try to keep it light and let the headlines speak for themselves. As Groper-Gate grabs the attention and headlines, we tend to get lost in the luridness of the charges and forget about who and what these people really are and what they are after, beyond the tits, mishes and tucheses of their targets. Take for instance the latest to be touched by the hands of fate: one John Conyers. This is from his dossier at Discover the Networks, which IMHO is a must-bookmark site and a who's-who of those hell bent on bringing us down:


  • Member of the U.S. House of Representatives
  • Member of the radical Progressive Caucus
  • One of 13 founders of Congressional Black Caucus
  • Has longstanding ties to the Democratic Socialists of America
  • Advocates freeing convicted cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal
  • Plotted with radical Ramsey Clark and others about ways to impeach President George W. Bush
  • Spoke in 2003 at anti-Iraq War rally of pro-North Korean Marxist group International A.N.S.W.E.R.
  • Voted against a resolution stating that "the United States and Israel are now engaged in a common struggle against terrorism."
  • His district has a higher proportion of Muslims than any other in Congress, and his official congressional web site can be read in Arabic
  • Spoke in 2005 at an event organized by accused anti-Semite Lyndon LaRouche
  • Orchestrated letter-writing and media campaign over so-called Downing Street Memo with help from George Soros-funded MoveOn.org


And those are just the bullet points. Actually, it looks like his resume has not been updated in a while, but the picture is clear. Considering this fossil is pushing 90 and has spent almost half his life undermining this nation, too many people are not old enough to remember the things he's done and too many more have not been given the whole story thanks to the distortion or covering up of the MFM. Take a good long gander; it'll curdle your guts.

And on that note, I wish all of you a blessed Thanksgiving holiday. Let's count our blessings and celebrate with family and friends. And one big-ass Dagwood at 3:00AM tomorrow morning!

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

Actually, I just noticed that John Conyers does the exact same thing with his mouth that Adolph Eichmann did when he was on trial in Israel.

Hmm.

May you and your family and friends remember your many blessings and thank the G-d that has taken care of you.

8 Conyers should be sent packing because his manner of speaking is just as fucking irritating as that RINO whore Susan Collins.

15 More gratitude needed

What a mistake we make when we are so bound up in our own affairs, our own tastes and plans that we do not see God's hand and have nothing to say of His goodness! What a mistake we make when we have nothing to sing of His love, and nothing to do but walk in our own little ways, overlooking and so missing the best things He has for thankful hearts! Oh, if we were all more grateful to God, more ready to offer praise to Him, we should see something of the glory that God sheds abroad in grateful hearts, something which must be told in grateful words, for God hath said that, "out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh."

Henry Foster (1821-1901)
Physician and founder of
a sanitarium in Clifton Springs, NY

Happy Thanksgiving!

18 Having a difficult time considering Barton a victim. If you're so fucking senile that you don't know that texting your junk is a really bad idea, people shouldn't want you representing them even if they're too goddamn dumb to know it. Or if a certain dogshit political party considers you their tool.

24 More noos; today is Thursday, November 23, 2017, Thanksgiving Day. On this day in 1718 off the coast of North Carolina, British pirate Edward Teach (better known as Blackbeard) was killed in battle with a boarding party led by Royal Navy Lieutenant Robert Maynard.

25 JJ you realize that when Conyers gets pushed out, we ain't gonna get anyone better, right? His district bordered mine when I lived up there. He also has the eastern end of Dearborn, including the Yemenis, which is why his website number is in Arabic.

27 VA community charges a mom with a felony because she placed a recording device in her child's backpack to get proof of her daughter being bullied at school. I guess it is a felony in VA to show up incompetent school officials.
