Tonight's ONT Has GTT

Resist!



Some of y'all may remember that last week I asked for recommendations on where to move. More on that later, but I have to say that one of the places we considered was Idaho.

Lefties are so horrified by this, and all I see is something wonderful. A community coming together to stand against domestic terrorists. Word is that a few vans full of Antifa DID show up, but they turned around at the city line and left. That's just a rumor, no confirmation.

The Center Can Not Hold


Ace mentioned this earlier this week, but I think this story need more attention. Here are a couple of articles:


Questions raised over hydroxychloroquine study which caused WHO to halt trials for Covid-19


Unreliable data: how doubt snowballed over Covid-19 drug research that swept the world


I'm actually kind of flabbergasted, and I'm hard to flabbergast. I'm a conservative, I believe government is corrupt, by it's very nature it can't help but be corrupt, and incompetent too. That's why I think that it should be sharply and ruthlessly limited in its scope and power. You're never going to get enough good people, making good laws, with wholesome intent. Won't happen. Can't, where human beings are involved. The solution is to contain the evil they can do by limiting the range of what they have the power to do. Put it this way: Suppose I tell you that you are going to get hit with a baseball bat. It's going to happen, there is no way to avoid it. The only choice you have is whether you'll be hit by a 5 year old with a whiffle bat, or a MLB .400 hitter with an aluminum bat. Which would you chose?

But this...this is conspiracy theory level stuff. A company, coming out of nowhere, supplying (most likely) false data, and nobody questions it, in fact, governments across the world base policy on it? Without questioning? That's beyond incompetent, it's bordering on malevolent. And why? Who was behind the whole thing? Either the people behind the company were running a grift that got way out of hand, or it was actually done with malevolent intent. And how far is that from Illuminati level paranoia? Stupefying.

Musical Interlude

Someone last week said that I should get Mis Hum to teach me how to add music to the ONT. I can handle it on my own, TYVM. Enjoy:


Self Defense

Guns are flying off the shelves in records numbers (gee, I wonder why?). But what gun should first timers buy?

Gunfight Science: Do Shotguns Suck for Self-Defense?

Guy is not a fan. I think they're OK, but I'd probably rather have an AR-15 type rifle.

Tip For Our Antifa Friends

Black Lies Matter

I'm seeing some pushback against the fundamental justification for the movement. Here's an article, a thread and a video:


The Truth About Police Violence and Race




What's really amazing to me is that when you dig into the numbers behind the rhetoric, you find out that, judging by facts alone, how very successful the US is at NOT being a racist country. Yet it's "common knowledge" that we have a huge problem with racism in this country. People aren't uneducated about it, they're intentionally miseducated. The media works 24/7, 365 to perpetrate the lie, and the powers that be do everything in their power to obscure the truth. Day after day after day. And if anyone dares challenge the narrative with facts, well, they must be destroyed.

Cruisin'


G.T.T.


So, I talked last week about moving, and I want y'all to know that tonight I put in an offer on a house in Tyler, Texas. I don't know if it will be accepted or not, but we're hopeful. We really liked the listing, loved the virtual tour we took (we walked the sellers agent all over the place for about an hour with FaceTime), and tomorrow our agent is going to take a look for herself. Hopefully she won't spot something we missed (if she does we can withdraw the offer, no harm no foul, w/in 10 days). It's always risky buying something from afar, but have high hopes, please wish us luck and say a little prayer that we get it if everything is as it appears.

That being said, tell me about Tyler. Seems nice, but I've never been there. Any Morons down there? Anyone have contacts? I'll be leaving my hometown of 50 years, it's kind of scary. I'll have to rebuild all the the networks I've accumulated over a lifetime in a new place. Help me out.

I heard from my youngest son for the first time since my life went pear shaped back in November : wife kicking me out of the house, attempted suicide, and the whole cancer thing.

I miss my boys terribly, and this was a gift from heaven.

Hopefully I hear from my oldest sooner or later, but for now I'll take this as a victory.

43 I'm actually kind of flabbergasted, and I'm hard to flabbergast. I'm a conservative, I believe government is corrupt, by it's very nature it can't help but be corrupt, and incompetent too.

It appears that few hold that view.

The WHO and CDC, both government organizations, made recommendations that were all over the board, but are used by pretty much everyone to justify all of the evil that has descended upon us.

Asking a government agency about disease is the same as FedEx or UPS asking the USPS on how to run a delivery service.

If a physician gives an unfavorable diagnosis, isn't it sort of customary to seek a second or even a third opinion?

So why is there this blind and absolute trust and faith in a government agency?

Because OrangeManBad, and hydroxychloroquine is associated with the Orange Man.

Hydroxychloroquine Will Kill You, despite the fact that it has been safely taken by millions of people for decades.

One thing that the pandemic/riots are doing is destroying the reputation of "experts".

Two weeks ago, the "experts" said you that were a murderer if you arranged a barbecue with a few families. Now, the "experts" are telling us that demonstrations with thousands of people practicing no social distancing are A-OK, so long as it is for a Leftist political cause. Tear gassing and arresting demonstrators is forbidden, of course, since that will spread the virus.

67 Evening.

Would it be rude to ask a white woman who kvetches about White privilege if she's ever been fucked by a black guy and if not doesn't that make her a racist for not being inclusive?

We all know that argument is going to be made sooner or later. It'll be like, "White privilege is white women denying black bodies the pleasure of sexual Congress and denying the fulfillment of the the total black experience" or some fucking horseshit. Similar to how the trannies tried pressuring lesbian women into fucking dudes in cheap wigs.

I have been thinking about Boise a lot the past year, few urban thugs and illegals from what I discern. Nice mountains close and decent schools, although I still don't trust any of them. Lots of Kalifornians have been fleeing there so housing prices have risen rapidly. However there should be a building boom and lots of jobs as I think many people will be looking for places to flee declining urban battlegrounds like me. Planning a trip this summer to check it out and want to beat the rush.I am convinced things are togging worse in many place, doesn't matter if Trump wins or loses.

The story is told of a New Yorker who moved to a small town in the Texas as a child at the start of the last century. His family opened a General Store and in time, he took over the business. He married a local girl and raised seven children. During the depression, he helped out many families, taking their IOUs for necessities. He was active in the local civic organizations and became a deacon in his church. When he passed away in the 1970s, the entire town turned out for the funeral of this beloved man. They even chipped in to buy him a magnificent headstone upon which they engraved "He was almost one of us."

85 I don't think there is anything I have hated with such intensity as mask mania. But even here in So Cal the insanity is declining a little. I take one of my fat-tire bikes out every day, and put in ten to fifteen miles. Around here there are abundant wide, and empty sidewalks so I use them in lieu of the bike lanes out in traffic. I often ride facing the traffic, and make a note of the ratio of masked to unmasked drivers who pass. I figure it's a good indication of the number of truly paranoid fools who wear one alone in the car. Every time I see a diaperface the count begins. A week ago I rarely got past six or seven unmasked drivers before spotting a diaperface, and starting the count over. In the last few days the count has gone to ten to twelve. Today it was close to twenty. I know this isn't you, know, all scientific and all, but I grasp at anything that smells like hope. Maybe one day faces will be back in style...

Tyler is NICE!

Real close to there is where the guy that left the Alamo to go get help, then returned with a 'no', the left a second time to try again is buried. I think his name was Rose. The Yellow Rose of Texas was written in his memory I think.

There's the Texas State Railway on Rusk, just down the road. That train shook an egg loose in Smash and that's how junior-ette became our 20th anniversary surprise.

West of there is the biggest damned yard sale in the world. Forgot the name of the town, but the horde will remember for me.

Try touring the Big Thicket civil war battle.

One thing I never hear black conservatives talking about (and it could just be that I've missed it) is how white liberals really think about blacks. White liberals don't really see blacks as the intellectual or moral equal of whites. If they did then they would hold them to the same standard that they hold whites to.

I guess this is the "soft bigotry of lowered expectations." I wish we'd hear more about this.

139 I've been through Tyler a time or two. Summers are hot up there (up relative to me), but at least you'll get a winter, too. Town is big enough to have what you need, small enough to not have what you don't, and close enough to Dallas and Ft. Worth to visit easy.
When you get to Texas, I'd recommend visiting the Perot Museum in Dallas, and the Arboretum there also. Love the Arboretum, especially fall, Christmas, and spring. The San Antonio Riverwalk is a great visit, Take a boat at least once. Wander along, eat, drink, have a hotel room.

If you like camping, there's some fabulous state parks. Palo Duro, Inks Lake, Big Bend, and Davis Mountains (including the old army outpost and a star party at the McDonald Observatory).

168 Well, I got booted off the comments section of Portland's main alt-weekly today.

Apparently my acerbic comments about the newspaper's pro-Antifa reporting, and Portland's elected officials celebrating a daily demonstration with thousands of people, while Portland continues to ban social gatherings and church services, was too much for them. Never had a comment censored (which they do occasionally) - apparently it was the totality of my commenting that was unacceptable.

There are signs that this was part of a more general ban on right-wing commenters generally (hard to determine whether this is true or not, since you don't know who has been banned).

I was thinking of responding by putting stickers on the paper's newspaper boxes downtown saying that the paper is collaborating with the cops, but it's easier to just let the paper die a natural death - they are already furiously begging their readers for money to stay afloat.

170 A lot of conservatives talk about that, and the inherent racism of Leftist policies toward minorities, particularly black people.

But the *professional* conservatives? They *never* talk about it. It isn't an approved talking point for them.

Now, of course, the left will say that they expect less of blacks because of white privledge (in fact, I believe that WP was invented in part for just this purpose).

Of course the left never explains Asians. Or why they expect less of brown people in other countries.

Posted by: Advo at June 04, 2020 10:28 PM (SEqlD)

But, be advised, most of those are serious drives from Tyler (I don't know where Inks Lake is). You DEFINITELY want to go to Palo Duro, though. And I've said it before: Palo Duro is great, but perhaps one of the most grossly underrated attractions in the state is about an hour's drive to the SE of there. I am of course talking Caprock Canyons. Some of the locals 'round here would argue that Caprock Canyons might actually be MORE scenic than Palo Duro, and less crowded, as Palo Duro is more well known.

I have been thinking about Boise a lot the past year, few urban thugs and illegals from what I discern. Nice mountains close and decent schools, although I still don't trust any of them. Lots of Kalifornians have been fleeing there so housing prices have risen rapidly. However there should be a building boom and lots of jobs as I think many people will be looking for places to flee declining urban battlegrounds like me.

228 I got this message from Yelp tonight:

Our country has a long and fraught history of systemic oppression and anti-Black racism that we have shamefully not yet come close to overcoming. Recent events, starting with the brutal murders of George Floyd, Breanna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, have made racial injustice something that we must deal with immediately as a society.
We have a lot of work to do, and it's on all of us to do that work. As an organization with diverse employees, users, and customers, Yelp is committed to supporting our Black colleagues, standing against racism and injustice in our communities, and laying the groundwork for change that is long overdue.
To start, the Yelp Foundation is donating $500,000 to the Equal Justice Initiative and NAACP Legal Defense Fund -- two organizations whose work is uplifting and empowering Black communities across the country.

Second, the White House (& hopefully majorities elsewhere), we see what "Draining the Swamp" was meant to have been, in the first term.

Except this time with a fury and vengeance that the Dems have earned in abundance.

I, for one, would not object to certain of them having bounties on their heads.

Get a Glock. Simple to use, fast reload, easy to clean and maintain.

There are better guns, maybe, but Glocks are light, have a high capacity of rounds (which, this week, I hope people see the benefit) and are reliable AF. Plus, you have good odds of being able to find one, as the best selling brand in America.

On that note, I donated to a black guy in Michigan running against Stabmenow. You know what happens if you donate to a political candidate. So, you would not believe the number of African Americans running for office as republicans. I know that it is because I am on "lists", but I do think that a sizable number of blacks are questioning liberalism and the democratic party.

Like the WHO, they're all in the pay of China, Inc. and the Gates/Soros Syndicate, where they're manufacturing the cures together--just like they manufactured the virus together--hey, Tony!

But they got their needed headline at the time.

A curious blogger noticed the researchers were living in a van down by the river and their office was in the Starbucks lobby for the free bathrooms.

As for conspiracy theories, we live in a time when the Clintons ran a World-Wide Bribery Empire out of State, Obama was an Iranian asset, the FBI and CIA tried to overthrow our government, the guy who was funding the Wuhan Bat-Lab is in charge of our response to the virus made there and ANTIFA has Senators on speed-dial.

Don't even go shopping unless you're prepared to buy right there and then. Helps avoid "the one who got away" syndrome.

All of my "one who got away" regrets involve automobiles. I had the opportunity - and the money - to buy an original-run 1964 Mustang convertible. All original. Not restored, but actually original. Barely driven, garaged or covered its entire life, fewer than 50k original miles.

If the Negro wasnt taken, tricked or deceived by the white liberal, then Negros would get together and solve our own problems. I only cite these things to show you that in America, the history of the white liberal has been nothing but a series of trickery designed to make Negros think that the white liberal was going to solve our problems.

336 Here is how the Chloroquine study grift went --

(In my opinion, having too much experience with research grant whores)

These guys, (surgisphere) were trying to grift for grant money - they planned to make agreements with hospitals to do some form of data management where they get access to their digital records, and in exchange provide some undefined service for the hospital. Problem is, to do this you need money for sales and marketing and IT, and their plan was to get grant money off research "studies". But to do the study, you first have to have the data. To get the data you need money. This is a problem.

Solution - fake studies in high profile areas where there is a lot of grant money floating around.

My point is, and this is rampant in funded "science" (like AGW) that people will tell you whatever they think you want to hear for a few bucks, and back it up with all kinds of fancy graphs.

So I think it was an attempted grift, but that they knew which lies to tell since that is how you get money. It is a corrupt system.

Had they not been found out, they would have had millions flowing in on all kinds of grants - that leads to more data agreements and more papers. Mo money.

You're one week in to your free trial of Militant Communism. We hope you're enjoying the experience. We would like to take this opportunity to ask you to take a brief survey regarding your free trial. We expect this survey to take less than five minutes.

1. On a scale of 1 to 7, how satisfied are you with your free trial of Militant Communism?

2. On a scale of 1 to 7, how likely are you to recommend Militant Communism to friends and family?

3. In 500 characters or less, what do you think we can do to make Militant Communism better?

4. On a scale of 1 to 7, how accurate is the statement "I have recently made different choices due to my experience with Militant Communism?"

5. On a scale of 1 to 7, how likely are you to continue with Militant Communism when the trial period ends?

401 I believe this whole Covid thing, if examined, is going to go down to be mostly a setup.

First we have the knowingly Fake Predictions.
The purposeful over intubation of patients and its direct influence of their death.
The seeding of nursing homes to raise the numbers.
The coordination to immediately deem HCQ a failure before test #1 took place.

I'd like to see the connections of those who pushed the lockdown and companies that A) Boosted sales (Target, Wallmart, Amazon) and B) Had an unusually high amount of stocks sold short, as that's generally a rarity in trading, especially at a time the economy was already rebounding from a dip due to the trade war.

You can also throw in those who are connected to China.

I think these people have been waiting for an opportunity to call a virus a pandemic, so they can use it to cash in while collapsing rivals. People will try and point to the medical companies, but they generally get huge payouts during every bi-yearly outbreak, this has to do with those who wanted this global shutdown.

Some are from Spokane but a handful, assumed to be leading are from out of the area.

There are boots on the ground hunting these guys. If they are doing this in Spokane, I'm assuming it is taking place elsewhere. Sheriff and PA's office are very cooperative with the feds.

437 About those masks....
Yesterday the girl spawn and I got our hair cut. Masks required by salon. Do not like but whatever, I needed a haircut. And since it's up close, I can let that one go.
After the salon, we met the boy spawn at Menards to get supplies for a small lawn project. Boy used to work at this store. Masks required, do not like but have the mask provided by the salon so okay fine. Masks on we went inside where the employee s guarding the turnstiles say the girl spawn cannot be in the store since she is not 16 years old. Oh and if somebody claims to be over 16 they ask for a driver's license to prove it. Now my girl is 14 and short. Most people think she's about 12. So if she was sixteen and looked like a fifteen yr old she would have been carded to go in to a fucking home improvement store. I didn't argue. I told my spawn we were leaving. The boy said he would get what we needed and bring it out to my truck. I said, no you wont. He looked confused and I told him, loud enough so the "guards" and manager could hear.... " this store isn't ever getting my money again. If they put stupid restrictions in place that are not based on any scientific medical fact and have a disgusting bias against kids, then they do not get my business. We will go to Lowe's instead. ". Found everything we needed at Lowe's, for less than it would have cost at Menards and no one commanded me to wear a mask.

+++++++++++++
We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France. We shall fight on the seas and oceans. We shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air. We shall defend our island, whatever the costs may be. We shall fight on the beaches. We shall fight on the landing grounds. We shall fight in the fields and in the streets. We shall fight in the hills. We shall never surrender! And if - which I do not for a moment believe - this island or large part of it is subjugated and starving, then our empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British fleet, would carry on the struggle until in G-d;s good time the New World, with all its power and might, steps forward to the rescue and the liberation of the Old.

Rutgers used to be the most popular tomato in the US, selling nearly a majority of the tomatoes. But the market changed and went to mechanical picking and long haul transport, and Rutgers weren't too good for that.

So they began to breed tomatoes for longer shelf life and more resistance to bruising. This is why commercial tomatoes are crap compared to garden ones.

What is now known locally as Rutgers has literally evolved over the years. Rutgers U, as part of some anniversary thing, recreated the original Rutgers strain. Campbell's Soup Company still had some "genetic material" that enabled them to get it right.

Rutgers have the best tang to me, more acidic than others, and that's what I prefer.

Michigan, in case you couldn't guess it, is hiding the number of deaths they have had in nursing homes from Covid-19.

The problem with being libertarian is "what flavor"? Classic Liberal? Volutnarist? AnCap? Anarcho? Rothbardian? Weld?


Property Ownership for voting is a classic liberal stance (Jeffersonian also, and one of the reasons he was against entailment of estates codified in Virginia colonial law), and is an attempt to limit the franchise to people with skin in the game.

There is an actual theory that rules and laws can be created and voted on by land owners but there is a plebiscite veto power of all citizens to establish a permanent peaceful nullification function, and that one has some odd outcomes in games theory: but that is more of a voluntarist-cum-best practices economic libertarianism that is opposed to a lot of AnCap and Anarcho libertarian stances.

I had a Paypal dispute and my bank could only block any person trying to get that exact dollar amount from my bank account. But Paypal wouldn't address it and my bank admitted that if a charge came in from Paypal and the other person just changed the amount of the charge, the funds would leave my account and there was nothing I could do. I deleted my Paypal account that day. But then today I go to Amazon to buy something and a big f-ing Black Lives Matter banner was across my screen first thing. Yeesh.

560 ..I myself might end up in texas sooner or later. I used to go there twice a year. What a blast. I would hate to be away from the jersey beaches, even though I don't go "on" them much, but its nice seeing the ocean from the car or harley. I'm in a red area, but too many blue shitholes fucking things up.

Posted by: Berserker-Dragonheads Division at June 04, 2020 11:37 PM (9Om/r)




I live 1/2 mile from the beach. A nice drive to the West on Seawall Boulevard, and in about eight miles, the Sewall ends, the road descends to about 3 ft. above sea level, and now you're on FM 3005, the Bluewater Highway.

'Bout thirty miles West, and you'll arrive at Surfside Beach, which is not only the most attractive beach in the area, but it also has the prettiest surf, and you can drive you car right onto the beach itself.

Three miles to the North of Surfside Beach, you'll find Lake Jackson, which is also a major oil tanker port. Across the bridge to the East, is Freeport, where all those multi-million dollar, seventy foot Bertrams and such lie at berth, awaiting their next 1,000 mile Marlin run.

You can keep running coastal or near-costal roads, all the way down to Corpus Christi and points South.

Until you hit the King Ranch, that is.

You gotta go around the King Ranch, which is larger than the State of Rhode Island.

My small city has an interesting hybrid - it has a police force of seven people (I think), but they are all actually sheriff's deputies. They operate out of a station in the town, and frequently deal with lower-level chronic enforcement issues in town, while most of the police protection is provided by normal sheriff's deputies.

What do you consider a small town? The village I live outside of is the county seat. Also, I just read some of the complaints to the police for the year, a lot of neighbors complaining about dogs barking, business alarms randomly going off, nothing serious, but nothing to bother the county sheriff over. Let the towns pay more taxes if they feel safer. It's also a tourist area, so the village police can handle the bar issues if bikers get out of hand.

Small businesses are being slaughtered. Many small businesses have been killed, 3 of which I described in an earlier thread today that I am personally aware of.

This is a political war. And this isn't Missoula or Great Falls. I have lived here my entire life, and never seen anything remotely close to this.

Compare this to the Vietnam war, and 1970 Seattle was in Vietnam crazy mode. This is much, much more unlawful, much more widespread in society (not just college students not wanted to be drafted, or radical communists of the time, which Seattle has always had)

The Blue staters that run Washington state don't care. They really don't. The curve has long ago been flattened in this state. There is zero excuse to keep this state shut down, except for Amazon, government, and WalMart.

They have collectively decided to let Washington die, because why?

Evita Peron, who Juan kept in a coffin in his living room in Paris all the time he was in political exile.

I suspect his second wife, Isabel, was less than pleased at that, but she got the presidency out of it, until she was deposed and arrested and her country taken over by a bloodstained military Junta.

and . . . that went dark fast.

I live 1/2 mile from the beach. A nice drive to the West on Seawall Boulevard, and in about eight miles, the Sewall ends, the road descends to about 3 ft. above sea level, and now you're on FM 3005, the Bluewater Highway.

'Bout thirty miles West, and you'll arrive at Surfside Beach, which is not only the most attractive beach in the area, but it also has the prettiest surf, and you can drive you car right onto the beach itself.

Three miles to the North of Surfside Beach, you'll find Lake Jackson, which is also a major oil tanker port. Across the bridge to the East, is Freeport, where all those multi-million dollar, seventy foot Bertrams and such lie at berth, awaiting their next 1,000 mile Marlin run.

You can keep running coastal or near-costal roads, all the way down to Corpus Christi and points South.

Until you hit the King Ranch, that is.

You gotta go around the King Ranch, which is larger than the State of Rhode Island.

644 Well the Floyd case looks iffy to me. Fentanyl and meth in his system, positive for coronavirus, heart condition, coroner said on his death certificate that it wasn't a clear "homicide" and the cops were on tape talking about trying to keep him alive. I don't understand a knee on the neck, but I don't understand while all the other cops are now in trouble. But can we just wait for the facts? I'm tired of witch hunt justice, mob rule and the other forms of human sacrifice that the Left engages in. How are these cops going to get a fair trial if the threat is convict them or civil war? My uncle told me when he was growing up the only way you saw a black man on a newspaper was when he murdered someone. So I was happy when we got balance, equality, positivity and many black role models. But then the Left went crazy and decided that we can't cover crime nationally if the person is black or Muslim. To go on an all out assault on whites, particularly white men. Christians can be attacked for their beliefs, no one else can. And this all out race war. Pathetic RINOs allow Republicans to be painted with horrible things, never fight back and call out the vicious hate babies crimes on the Left. The AP just instructed writers that using the term looting is "racist." GTFOOH

Also, I just read some of the complaints to the police for the year, a lot of neighbors complaining about dogs barking, business alarms randomly going off, nothing serious, but nothing to bother the county sheriff over. Let the towns pay more taxes if they feel safer. It's also a tourist area, so the village police can handle the bar issues if bikers get out of hand.

669 So, I manged to burn a few rods today. Had this old car frame, that I had stripped all the still-good parts from. So I flipped it upside down, and welded on four legs cut from some steel scrap I had lying around, and fitted the legs with cross braces to keep them from spreading, and diagonal braces to keep the whole thing from racking. Put broad metal feet on the legs, too, so it won't sink into the ground.

Got it flipped back upright, and it is standing on its legs, nice and solid. One weld broke on one of the diagonal braces; will have to redo that. But I have another session of welding yet, anyway, to put some upright pegs on the frame rails to divide it into bays, so I can use it as metal rack to store lengths of steel, pipe, and miscellaneous long slender car parts, like leaf springs, drive shafts, or bumpers.

Once done building it, I can pick it up with the loader on the tractor, trundle it out back of the shop, and manhandle it into a gap between two trees, where it will remain, mostly out of sight, but still useful.

689 The Coeur d'Alene area (and all of North Idaho) is absolutely stunning. I miss it! If there were more job opportunities out there, I'd probably still be living there, but a lot of what's up that way is with the timber industry or with tourism. Houses on the lake in CdA have gotten crazy expensive, and going up north to Bonner county isn't much better - Sandpoint is amazing, but you've basically got two types of housing stock - the original, old stuff, which is typically kind of small, run down, and cheap, and then the new stuff (much spurred on by the now-defunct Coldwater Creek) which is overpriced. Further north, Bonners Ferry is much cheaper, but you're really out there by then. (Bonners Ferry, I believe, is the closest town to Ruby Ridge.) I love it, I miss it, and I hope to be able to get back sometime.

The guards with white gloves kept shooing people along, it was obvious people were lagging as we shuffled by Ho - enjoying the dry cool (June in Hanoi).

And even THAT would not have happened but for diplomatic pressure from Australia. Because, of course Somalians wearing badges should be allowed to kill outright young blondes wearing their night clothes. And shoot them while in the passenger seat of the car, extending his firearm across the driver, who could have stopped the whole thing, but didn't, because that would have required some common sense or respect for a basic level of humanity that says that Thou should not murder a tall attractive female in her negligee just because she called the cops.

I have lived here since 1986 - must have missed your ONT last week when you gave reasons for leaving Baltimore - although I spent a year there in the eighties while my husband was doing a fellowship so I am aware it has only gotten worse (if that was even possible....) Tyler is deep red and I think you will find lots of folks with the same core beliefs. If you have any questions, let me know and I will attempt to put you in touch with the right folks. Btw - saw way up thread questions about Inks Lake - that's in Central Texas. And the big garage sale is in Canton - First Monday. Lots of lakes near Tyler - and throughout East Texas, plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities. It really is the best of both worlds - fairly inexpensive to live here, good people, lots of trees, near major cities for a visit and CONSERVATIVE......Welcome, hope you and your family are as happy here as I have been!

I've heard lots of nice things about Priest River, just never made it up that way. Made it up to BC a few times, and even AB once (though it was my second time there). Just have to say, BC was terrible driving, not only because of the mountains, but because the roads were in such bad repair, and the markings were horrible to try to see at night. As soon as we got into AB, though, things were much flatter, and there were roads that were smooth and well-marked.

719 Actually, a procession led by relatives of those killed by this or that variety of human would be quite lit and instructive.

Do it in order of magnitude/number.

So relatives of young black men killed by other young black men would be first - and about 50 times the size of any following group (could be over- or under-estimating here, haven't re-checked the stats), with whites killed by blacks next, on and on, with blacks killed by police waaaay back - about 10. Vs. many thousands in the lead cohort.

Actually, a great way to visualize it. One of the guys bird-dogging the WuHuFlu scandal (i.e., official public health policy after about mid-April) translated the risk implied by the stratified IFR into some Simpson's imagery, pretty funny - and very clear. I love the idea of the "Parade of Victims", by order of magntitude.

746 Answer: Kuibyshev.

Diplomats and some of the Soviet ministries evacuated there as the Wehrmacht approached in October.

Stalin's special train was ready/waiting at the station.

At what could be called the last moment, he decided to stay. They even had the Revolution Day parade (on its new calendar day in November) in Red Square - with most of the troops literally continuing to march on to their positions west of the city (probably a unique military parade in the modern era).

There was a day or so of chaos just before Stalin decided to stay. The only actual significant rebellion after consolidation of Soviet misrule, certainly in a major Russian city, and obviously only one in the capital. Very interesting day or two.

770 Miklos, you might find it amusing that a Peter Zwack and family live in Newport. His sister, who grew up with my wife in NYC, invited us to her 60th bday party in Budapest, where we got to tour the Unicom distillery and museum. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, they sued for, and recovered many of the family properties as well as the Unicum brand.

Family lore is that they were dispossessed when the Communists took over after WW2, and were only allowed to leave if they gave the secret Unicum recipe to the government (Unicum is the state liqueur of Hungary). Needless to say, they ginned up a bogus recipe, which the government tortured Hungarians with for 40 years, until the Zwacks returned with the original recipe after communisms collapse...

A couple of sources say Tyumen, for example:

https://tinyurl.com/ydyvkvam

The government was evacuated to Kuibyshev, but other things went elsewhere - the Bolshoi Ballet was evacuated to Alma-Ala (I think), and a lot of museum pieces were evacuated to Novosibirsk (which had an uncompleted opera house available to store things).

My garage got invaded by a stupid robin today. I had the big door closed but the man door was standing open. I had spent several hours on the riding mower, and then went to get on with my welding project. I go in the garage. "Chatter-chatter, flappity-flap", damned robin is going apeshit in the garage. So I open the big overhead door to let it out. It continues to flap around inside, squawking. Lights on the top side of the garage door, where it's up against the ceiling. This is one dumb robin.

So what happens next? Damned if a barn swallow doesn't come zooming in through the open bay door, does one of its patented high-G U-turns, and zooms out again. And the stupid robin follows it. Gone.

The riots aren't riots, and if they are they're police riots, the looting is a valid response to 400 years of oppression, but it's mostly white supremacists doing it anyway, and hey, the stores are insured, lol.

807 WeirdDave,
We moved to Texas 4 1/2 years ago--job transfer for my husband. It is a great state and the people are very friendly. I've gotten my roses from Chamblee's in Tyler for years--lovely people and gorgeous, healthy plants.
When we moved I looked at 64 houses--since it was a relo with decent perks involved it made sense for me to look at so many houses--particularly in a big city like Houston. Given the traffic we actually spent the night near the Woodlands to see what the commute would be like and nixed it b/c of that. I doubt you'll have that issue in Tyler.
I will say, though, it would be worthwhile for you to have your RE agent film the neighborhood. Houses can look quite different when approached from the road, you could check Google maps too for that view.
We specifically wanted a very walkable neighborhood and are very happy that we can walk in the neighborhood, visit with neighbors and walk to a bunch of local restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Commute is only 15 min for my husband on local roads--for me it is either at home or to the airport.

Good luck with the move. I think you'll like Texas!

Thanks Sock. It has been a bad week with all the nonsense around this state. And watching other small businesses fold because Jay Insless is a truly horrible human being made me really depressed today. I'm trying to shake it, normally not a problem, but damn, everyone has a breaking point.

I really love this country and this state, and I am now aware many others who make a lot more money than me, don't give a rat's ass about it.

I have always been the guy who is looked on to pull the wagon instead of riding in it, but I always thought most people were reasonable and try to solve problems.

This week just topped off the realization that I was really wrong. Around here, especially most of the leaders, don't care about problems of the regular, backbone citizen that just wants to contribute and get along and pull their weight.

And every option I can think of to fix it is really horrible.

840 Weird Dave - Hopefully you ses this at somepoint, since it is so late.

I grew up in Baltimore during the Schaffer era. Graduated from Baltimore Poly. I loved living there. Eventually had to move to DC subburbs for work.

20 years ago I upped and move to Florida for a new job. Took a 40% pay cut and saw my take home pay go up.

I would never move back. There are some things I miss, but a lot of things I grew to despise. Places like Florida and Texas are heaven to me.

The Zwack family make a number of different products, including palinka and all kinds of stuff.

The Original Unicum was created for the then Austrian Emperor, who suffered from an acid stomach. Zwack was the Court Physician.

It works. Unicum is highly effective regarding acid/acid reflux.

844 "The founders probably thought that too. In the end they had no fucks left to give." Beserker.

Well, maybe. BUT they were brave and committed. At Yorktown, the Brits had commandeered the nicest house in town, owned by an ancestor of my husband. Washington and troops were reluctant to fire cannon balls on the house and that man said, nuts, fire away! The cause was the thing. there is still part of a cannon shot in the walls of the house.

This is one reason why I am so darn determined to keep fighting. They didn't quit, even when it looked really bleak. I think about some of the soldiers that dug in during the Battle of the Bulge, horrible weather and looked really bleak, again, the response to request for surrender was "Nuts!".

So the h*ll with these stupid virtue signaling idiots. We've got the right side, literally and figuratively, even if we go down in the fight

First, Welcome Aboard to the Tx Mo Meet. I won't try to describe it, you'll simply have to be there and become as one with Teh Horde.

But for all that is Holy.

Please book your room there IN Corsicana.

Gruene Hall and Canyon Lake are three to four hour drives, at best. You to THERE to enjoy THERE.

Tx Mo Meet, you book in Corsicana.

Should you find all the room are full, your next possible town is in Ennis, TX.

Pro-Tip. Book now, if not three months ago.

I've gotta wake up in about four hours, so I'm now officially kaput.

They were totally looted Monday night in Van Nuys by "Peaceful Pros".....(otherwise now known as "Looter Technicals")...holy shit. They even dragged his 500 lbs floor safe full of "control Drugs" out into the back parking lot of the building before an LAPD helicopter spotted them and sent in ground units and chased the pussies off. He opened business the next day sans glass on the front of his business and cleaned out of ?"Hypertensive meds and all of his Vitamins? Guess the pussies have parents with high blood presure and they need to keep themselves in shape for more looting.

Trump's base is safe. I'm fairly sure that independents are horrified by what they see from the left. Anyone with a brain knows that the price tag for Dem/Left proposals means huge economic pain for them, not to mention destabilizing the country further.

But for sure any one of us knows that the Dem/Leftist plan is to "make us pay" for voting for Trump. And they will keep throwing EVERYTHING at Trump to prevent him from dismantling the Deep State and their various rat schemes for $$ and power.

I think Trump will prevail, but he won't be able to get as much done as he'd like. Heck even Grassley is harassing him now b/c of Trump firing the IC IG.

More sore than I expected to be. Every move of my left arm seems to pull on the incision. Very uncomfortable Thursday and not much better right now. Doing a lot of sleeping, and the reason why I got here late, due to not wanting to move my arm. I'm glad I can pull some of my soups out of the freezer so I don't have to cook; reheating is one thing, cooking is probably a little more painful, what with all the arm movements involved.

I'm going to contact the Doc about this excessive stiffness/muscular tenderness/soreness. When having you arm hang down by your side when you walk hurts, . . . .

Second, they are ignorant if the disagree with democrat-approved religious dogma on racial issues.

Lastly, and this is where it really gets good. We like and cite to people like Candace Owens, Thomas Sowell, Justice Thomas, because it the well-worn ploy of racists to use people of color to perpetuate racism and oppression since the beginning of time.

More sore than I expected to be. Every move of
my left arm seems to pull on the incision. Very uncomfortable Thursday
and not much better right now. Doing a lot of sleeping, and the reason
why I got here late, due to not wanting to move my arm. I'm glad I can
pull some of my soups out of the freezer so I don't have to cook;
reheating is one thing, cooking is probably a little more painful, what
with all the arm movements involved.



I'm going to contact the Doc about this excessive stiffness/muscular
tenderness/soreness. When having you arm hang down by your side when
you walk hurts, . . . .

So sorry that you are swollen and sore. You know sometimes in surgery they position you awkwardly on the table and then you are sore afterwards.

Hopefully that is the case. Keep us posted. Sending up some healing prayers for you right now!

No, it wasn't arm surgery; it was an ICD battery replacement surgery. This time, I wasn't knocked out, just lidocaine local injections where the Doc made the new incision (on the old scar from the install and prior battery replacement (2 surgeries four years apart). While they draped my face so I couldn't see anything, I could feel the pressure and hear the little electric screwdriver unscrewing and rescrewing the battery in. It just seems this time my left pectoral muscle area is extremely sore and any left arm movement hurts as it seems to pull on those muscles and the incision area. I didn't experience this level of discomfort the last battery replacement. I had to put a mixing bowl up on a top shelf in my kitchen cabinet yesterday, lifting both arms, and it was very painful. Even extending my arm out straight to the side hurts. I know I've been cut open and all, but still; it was "only" about a three inch incision. Maybe I was just being an optimist and thought 'no big deal' having been through this procedure before with minimal post-procedure discomfort/pain. But it was a different doctor, so there's that, too.

The scary thing is, if you read Stowe's "Uncle Tom's Cabin, or Life Among the Lowly", Uncle Tom was a hero in that book.

928 ouch.

just my rough take, as someone with more than their own share of ortho/muscle issues. (and no, this is NOT medical advice):

talk to your doc/surgeon about warm compresses in the area, and anti-inflammatories such as aleve, advil etc. since i am most definitely NOT a pharmacist, i have no idea if they are safe for you to take, and, even if i did, i sure as hello would not treat over the internet.

it they did not give you specific instructions on post operative placement/restrictions of the arm, experiment for yourself. if having it in a sling is less painful, and no one told you not to, consider it.

above all, contact the office, and insist on additional guidance. they are required to respond. if it hurts, and they didn't cover it, they missed a step.

939 We are teaching the Left that they can tantrum their way through stealing the election and we'll just let it go because we don't want to make too much of a fuss.

A little bit of wordsmithing and I can turn that into a Principle that Goldebert will parrot on Twitter to justify another noble call to surrender in our name.

I'm also hearing a lot of Very Reasonable Points why we are should keep our powder dry and wait for the Marxist Left to rue the day that will never come.

I know I'm a bit to quick to reach for violent solutions, I think that's more frustration speaking than sociopathy. But I have also come to the sad realization that a good number of people giving Very Good Reasons why we shouldn't fight today are never going to fight at all.

I guess there is an attitude that if the Rule of Law fails then it wasn't worth protecting to begin with. So they will call Game Over and retreat to a private life of fireside stories of how back in the day they were one of proud few who KNEW. Everything has come to pass just as they warned.

aspirin on top of Warfarin?

Holy Shit NO!... unless you've given strict dosing instructions, by someone familiar with your particular case. if i saw an order for someone like you on my floor at a hospital, i'd not only flag it, but contact my pharmacist Stat, to review it and contact the doc as needed.

not trying to scare you, but certain things are red lines, and they tend to set alarm bells off.

i'd politely suggest you go back to the quacks office, on the phone, or in person, and demand answers to a variety of things, to include your 5th vital sign (pain control). it's a marker the Joint Commission monitors. and they can lose accreditation over a callous indifference towards it in patients.

In my case, due a silent heart attack and heart scarring, I have an electrical issue with my heart. The electrical impulses that cross the heart to make it beat properly can go haywire with me as the scarring prevents proper electrical flow. Without that ICD, I'd be long dead already as I've had 10 shocks in the past to get my heart out of fibrillation.

almost passing out every time I got up. (no problems before). while in the

951 beanervt, the 'best' part was a '7 shocks in 13 hours' shock storm. I was told by the Doc that the shocks were appropriate, as compared to being a faulty device and inappropriate. That event put me in the Cardiac Care Unit for 12 days, with an extra 5 due to the Amiodarone IV I had administered to 'calm my heart down'. That stuff was like putting Drano in my veins, pretty much ruining them; I was there for the extra days due to a major infection in both arms from the IVs. Now all my blood work is taken from the back of my right hand. And I have blood work every month, sometimes more often, due to being on Coumadin for life. My genetics make me a blood clot factory, not only with DVTs multiple times, but a clot in a lung and my heart as well.

I accidentally clicked on a commenter's name - a 20-something Detroiter, not black, who thought having a curfew just encourages people to riot. The FIRST post by this stupid young man was a complaint that his car insurance rate went up.

He has no freaking clue what his home insurance - even renter's insurance - is going to look like if the freaks riot without restraint.

I found a list of examples of White Privilege at Harper's Bazaar:https://tinyurl.com/ycyr82vfHere's an example:
#17 is "I can criticise our government and talk about how much I fear its
policies and behaviour without being seen as a cultural outsider."
But doesn't that basically describe everyone left of center? So it's like they're accusing us of possessing the privilege that they already have.

At one point he asked me what the lady in the white dress was doing in the event room, since it was closed. He thought it was a real person, and almost quit on the spot when I told him he has seen the ghost bride.

Interestingly, the only guys I have ever dated or been involved with have been dark (like Idris or darker) or white.

Seriously, this is so insane is almost defies belief. These idiots really believe that crime can be wished away, that there are no bad people, just poor misunderstood drug addicts and mentally ill folks who'll quit committing crimes if we just give them a hug or some time in a rehab facility.

Reminds me of Obama and his insistence (which he still maintains to this day) that islamic terrorists are motivated to kill only because they lack jobs and education. This despite the fact that all the 9/11 hijackers were well-funded, middle-class (or better) college graduates, and several held graduate degrees. And the ISIS leader had a Ph.D. in islamic theology. And one of the AQ leaders was a physician. But no matter how much evidence there is that the theory is wrong, Obama (and his lefty ilk) just won't let it go, because it's what they WANT to believe.

Thousands of armed but peaceful protestors in Michigan last month. Did it stop? No, the tranny tyrant turned the screws even harder.

Protests in Pennsylvania to reopen their businesses. Counties threatening to ignore the governor. Did he relent? No, he threatened to withhold state funding. But today he marches arm in arm with so-called protestors.

What is the unfortunate lesson that is being learned? Violence gets results. It may cost in terms of public opinion but it gains you power, and if you have power then who cares about public opinion. That's what they're teaching, and for those who have no moral compass this is a lesson that will be deadly (to their opponents).

Even though there will be people of all backgrounds who suffer in what will become little more than the Paris Commune at The Terror stage, no federal troops should be sent.

Now, in America, it is the U-Haul index.

To be Devil's advocate for a moment: The Minneapolis PD is the only PD dep't in the country which has had 2 separate cases where officers were charged with the Murder of an unarmed civilian, with many officers involved. This is one seriously F'd up Police Department. It might be necessary to completely abolish this department, fire everyone at all levels, and then rebuild a replacement from the ground up.

I think many have forgotten that this was done in New Orleans in 2005 - 2007, which is why the Nat'l Guard had to do police duties for 18 months there. And it was an absolutely necessary move.

now of course I know Minneapolis will screw the whole thing up, but it's still not a bad idea to fire everyone in that PD.

That's true, but it's one of the hardest concepts to get into a leftist's head. I've tried. "It's a social contract, we delegate our vengeance to the state." They can't understand that, they think prison is just for rehabilitation and simply will not think about victims of crime in any meaningful way.

That's the rumor, but there's no evidence for it whatsoever. I'd think you'd see some kind of disclaimer at the bottom like," A Scumbag Communications Company," or at least an effort at rebranding. Renaming the site something lame like "TDR" or some shit to break from the past.

The simplest, and certainly the most rational, explanation for his turn is that Drudge just turned into a giant piece of shit.
Posted by: Robert at June 04, 2020 08:57 PM (cig/Y)

Drudge, in 2015 or early 16, was interviewed by Michael Savage for around an hour. It was enlightening. Mutual respect was obvious.

Drudge told Michael that in 2015, he was quietly cornered by some Obama minions that told him he was over, that he was going to be investigated by Loretta Lynch's DoJ and they rattled off some supposed charges related to what he published. The charges were phony.

They made it clear to him that he was getting taken out, the site is a target, and they will go after him, too.

He did not name names, and was in fear. He told Savage that he would recognize some or all of them.

I watched that show. It was only on Savage's site for a couple of days.

537 --We need to regulate social media.
I just learned I and black Conservatives are being shadow banned on Twitter and Youtube. So on Youtube what they do now is let someone block you. But they hide that from YOU. You don't know so you keep commenting, thinking you're giving people great info to take action. Then Youtube, no lie, upvotes it ONE time. But nobody ever responds or anything. You just think you're "unpopular" but not invisible! --- And Twitter is shadow banning black people that are showing liberal lies. So if you search for Young Pharaoh, a young street black Alex Jones type who is starting to really do some amazing videos with proof of Antifa violence and liberal tricks instigating all these riots, you can't find him on Twitter. If you go to Youtube and search for him, you can go to his description, get the URL for his Twitter account and it shows up. So if he didn't know this he'd be doing the same thing, using twitter and just thinking no one is interested. Yet his video on Youtube "Democrat satanist started the riots" is explosive and people are starting to pay attention to him and big tech is doing everything they can to suppress him.
--The places I used to go to coordinate to vote Republican are gone, swallowed up by Twitter. But when Twitter found out I was contacting blacks, gays and other minorities to bring to Conservatism they locked my account. WE NEED to regulate big tech! And don't get me started on how Google is manipulating searches.

545 Most staggering doppleganger experience. At school there was a girl that I was dating. I was quite smitten because young men are often quite smitten.

She died in an automobile accident while driving home during a school break. I was damn near destroyed, but time heals things, for the most part.

Probably 6 years later, I was at a local bar where a bluegrass band was playing. They struck up 'Will The Circle Be Unbroken', and a bunch of people got up and started a kind of cloggy circle dance. Then, I saw this girl walk up and join in, and it was her.

It wasn't, of course, but damn...I don't think I've gotten entirely over it yet.

When I was very young, I shared a bedroom on the first floor of a two-story home. Right above us was our sisters' room. Some nights I heard furniture moving around upstairs, figured it was my sisters doing something.

Years later, with both brothers moved out, I got swapped to the other upstairs bedroom. Some nights I still heard furniture moving around upstairs.

I stopped at a local liquor store on my way home tonight. I completely forgot about the mask bullshit and went in to grab some beer.

Lady at the checkout asked me if I had a mask and I said, I guess not. She asked me where I had been where a mask wasn't required as if I just landed from Mars. I said south of the Mason/Dixon, they seem to have it figured out. She replied that next time I showed up without a mask I would be refused service.

I said, no problem, I won't be back.

@RichHiggins_DC
The individual who brought Mattis in worked natsec transition and was brought to Trump team by John McCain's Senate staff.
While in Beijing he was accompanied by the leader of the International Union of Muslim Scholars....aka; Muslim brotherhood.
This individual admitted under questioning to being "placed in transition to subvert the trump agenda."
This individual coordinated resume reviews with Samar Ali....daughter of Subhi Ali...the head of the Jerusalem Fund...which funds BDS, Hamas, and other jihadi groups.

@Truthteller1349
Who else headed the IGE? We had McCain's staffer place the Gallagher into Trump's transition to sabotage & he goes to Beijing w/his MB side kick to conspire? Then hires Ali, daughter of Hamas funder, to review resumes, getting pple like Mattis & Tillerson? China was part of Coup!

Stephen Coughlin
@S_Coughlin_DC
Gallagher was a direct report to Bill Hagerty. His organization included Samar Ali and her father Subhi Ali, who ran the Jerusalem Fund.

607 Ran into a small protest on my way home, first I have seen in person. About 100 people making noise and carrying signs at a major intersection, looked like mostly suburban kids out there to be hip, maybe a few more serious types. Most probably needed their parents permission. More disturbing than the protest was the number of drivers giving a thumbs up and beep of approval.

Except for air support, antifa today uses the web for training, meetings, how to scrub your social media history prior to an attack, mission planning, mission communication during the attack, escape routes and directing how to cover for each other during a riot.

Antifa have been videoed with earpieces taking directions during riots and directing people to attack, and sometimes being paid in cash to riot.

They use drop pallets and trucks to quickly drop stacks of bricks to local riot groups, ready to go, as well as bottles filled with gasoline.

We are being attacked by both outside forces like Soros and enemy forces inside our borders.

I learned about him from a young black girl who actually knew about Antifa and was blaming violence on them. Then I saw a white Conservative military wife who was recommending Young Pharaoh to everyone. I was like WHO can get through to the hood AND respect from this white military wife? Then I watched this video. (If you don't trust links go to Youtube and search Young Pharaoh Democrat Satanist Started the Riots for Hillary, Obama"). I wasn't sure at first but as I kept watching it was fascinating and just kept building and building. He had videos, proof, was reading off tweets, everything. So he saw things I hadn't heard because it was from a street perspective but in all cases he would show proof of what he was talking about. And there were a lot of things he seemed to be getting right.

He had 60,000 followers, went up to 300,000. And now it is ON to suppress him by big tech.

711 And like I said the Young Pharaoh video very much reminds me like if Alex Jones were young and from the streets. He was anti Trump only a few months ago, saw things going on and now feels Trump is doing great things. He's exposing stuff. Don't know how he feels today but at that point he was asking to get the military on the streets to stop the rioting. He was showing how black protestors let the community down (showing how they should learn from how white communities stopped Antifa which he showed with video) and how it was clear others were instigating. He thinks the police have been infiltrated. I am pro police but after watching that the FBI got infiltrated and tried to frame Trump and knowing these are Dem cities and watching them kneel with protestors I'll just wait and see what the evidence is for that.

Unacceptable. Weak. Pathetic. Sickening to my stomach. Yet when Tebow kneeled for God that caused their vitriol. Everything is backwards with rage babies.

NYU Business Professor: Covid Has Begun a Long-Overdue Collapse of the American Education System, and They Deserve Everything They're Going to Get

Two videos of him, below, making the same basic points. He's on shows hosted by people you wil not like (Amanapour, Cooper), but he's worth listening to.

His basic notion is this:

American education has long been absurdly overpriced. He notes this is the only industry in America which has yet to face significant pressures to cost-cut.

He says that parents are getting to see what their $76,000 per year is buying them-- because now they can see the witless profs lecturing to their kids on the Zoom sessions they have online.

And parents are thinking: "This is worthless. I am spending $300,000 for something absolutely worthless."

Not just worthless -- in addition to the debt, there are four years (at least) of lost wages and lost experience to consider.

He also notes that many students -- maybe the most in recent history -- will decide to skil college next year, because college might not even be all the way open. Many will take "a gap year."

This will cause many colleges to go bankrupt.

The top tier schools, he notes, will be fine, because 1, they're sittting on billions of dollars in endowments (which he thinks should be taxed -- and so do I) and 2, because they have long, long wait lists, and they can grab up as many just-as-good-as-our-first-pick students as are needed.

Second tier schools will have to dig down deeper into the wait lists and will have to admit students that would not be considered qualified in normal years, but most of them will be fine. (Most.)

But third tier schools do not have waiting lists, and all the students that would have gone to them will be going to second tier schools.

They will go bankrupt. He says that education will face what every other industry has faced, a bunch of weak concerns going bankrupt and pressure to cost-cut for the rest.

Some second tier schools will go bankrupt or at least will be forced into drastic changes: specifically, second-rate schools that charge very high tuition.

And I know America has a lot of those. The high tuition doesn't seem to be justified except to exclude less wealthy students from a school that isn't really exclusive in any way except for having an exclusive pricetag.

Posted by: Mike Hammer at June 04, 2020 07:05 PM (786Ro)

34 Nice to hear but I doubt much progress will be made.

As he noted the top schools are wealthy beyond words, $ literally no issue for them, for decades, or ever, without a single student.

And state schools - equally toxic and disastrous in most respects - will be bailed out almost everywhere.

And no way there's more than 1/2 year missed. Many systems have already announced fall semester is on, as they're not idiots and recognize the flu is literally a non-issue for the student demo, and just a flu for anyone else under 65.

So, can't really get excited about this.

Even more pessimistic addendum: anyone think that 1/2 to one year of mild financial pain for one slice of colleges will have any, any impact whatsoever on the toxic miseducation/indoctrination they now provide? Didn't think so.

Posted by: rhomboid at June 04, 2020 07:05 PM (El6T/)

35 I have been saying for years now on here that, what passes for a college or university, is really just a juevinile Country Club for spoiled kids. Not to mention they have turned into indoctrination centers for communism and anarchy.

After 4 years of high school, do 3 years of service....Military, sweeping streets, digging ditches, what ever...then decide on what you want to study ( if anything ) and study THAT and only THAT and at a community college. Very much like they do in Israel.

All the talent has been pushed into these smaller schools. The result is that not only are these small colleges much cheaper, but the quality of instruction is demonstratively superior.

91 All those wishcasting state-level fiscal constraints, talk to the Fed about the new "facility" states can access.

If it's as bad as I fear, in practice, it will sort of be the final collapse of any real governance when it comes to $$.

It will take the disastrous national model, in which the US uses its unique position as the world's reserve currency and best/biggest capital market to essentially print money/incur debt without any constraint or limit whatever, to fund federal deficits - and for the first time provide the same to states.

We'll see. But that is clearly what IL, NY, CA, WA, and many other horribly mismanaged states want. And nothing the Fed has done since 2008 has shown any trace of sense or responsibility.

This isn't new or unknown by the way. The reason they get away with it is most of the expense comes on taxpayers, many of whom don't even go to college. Congress slowly took over the entire system of college finance, and they hand them money every year.

Because "everyone" has a right to a college education that turns them into a future Antifa or BLM terrorist, who is also a guaranteed Democrat vote.

The problem with asking for someone to give you a letter of resignation, which you do as a courtesy to help them save face, is that it is then harder to say you fired them. I did fire James Mattis. He was no good for Obama, who fired him also, and was no good for me!

134 As someone who teaches at a small Texas college, I'll strongly object to being called "third-tier."
The thing is that, after two decades of intersections hiring practices, the big schools have an ethnically diverse and largely female faculty that can't teach, can't write, and can't research. All the talent has been pushed into these smaller schools. The result is that not only are these small colleges much cheaper, but the quality of instruction is demonstratively superior. The classes are much smaller, as well. And not insanely politically partisan, as well.
I'll put my local, little American History or Archaeology class against anything taught at Harvard. It's a first-tier course.

But it's unsustainable. These are small religious colleges and there is just not the market for it. It's not sustainable for how the number of schools there are and it's consolidating.

Yep. The idea, at least at UC, has been to admit various totally unqualified people* to do bogus majors, while also admitting a bunch of Chinese students who pay overseas tuition (yum!) and maintain to some extent the academic reputation of the UC campuses.

*When CA got rid of its exit exam, a ridiculously easy exam (per my kids) taken in the sophomore year of HS, and testing 10th grade grasp of English and eighth grade grasp of mathematics, the LAT featured kids gushing that now they could take up their place at, e.g., Berkeley. Because after flunking the test in their sophomore, junior, and senior years (same test, multiple shots on goal) they couldn't attend Berkeley.

But once the test was eliminated, it was "Cal, here I come!" Temporarily, at least.

I'm interested in one of your programs in the STEM wing of your university. As a grad school applicant and student, I will not do one f*cking thing to promote diversity or LGBTQEIEIO. Let me repeat. I will not do one f*cking thing to promote diversity or LGBTQEIEIO. That makes me the most qualified applicant you will consider. Thank you for your time.

The universities dropping the SAT have not thought this through, which doesn't surprise me because they're run by idiots.

Whether they realize it or not, they're moving toward the Ohio State model, which takes all comers, but then applies a vicious attrition rate. I can't imagine that that makes for a happy environment.

The alternative is to have a bunch of watered-down courses, but in my experience with UC's various spasms of admitting ghetto kids, they drop out quickly even from watered-down courses because they're bored.

So, if you're not to screen for academic skills, how to avoid blowing a hole in the student body? Over-admit, and then weed them out (or let them weed themselves out) later.

Friend runs a summer institute that normally has interesting visa challenges as they bring in people from all over the world, especially f***ed up conflict zones - thing is already cancelled, so can't use his data to get a read on the visa thing.

But I noted right after Trump's statement last week on Chi-Nah that we'd just seen the big course change on China policy, no more "compartmentalizing" trade from everything else. All on the table now. I would hope/expect that to include the Chinese student issue, a massive security and economic and sovereignty issue in its own right.

Then, The Cosby Show came along in 1984 and the American black family was shown in a whole new light. And it was well received. The Cosbys put to rest all the bullshit we endured in the 60's and 70's with the racial shit. It was a new beginning of a post-racial time.

But the Racists didn't like that so they continued to stoke the racist fires. By 1992, thanks to Los Angeles and the TV news, the black community was set back 30 years and never recovered, but got even worse.

Wayne State University was a commuter-friendly college in the mid-to-late '90s. The president, David Adamani, kept tuition increases low and put money into restoring existing buildings (e.g. the original college building with its Art Deco tile). Because of that, students could actually write off part of their tuition on state taxes - which was great.

As soon as he left, tuition was raised AND fees were added that had no benefit to commuters or evening-class students. I paid for parking lots that closed early (the high-rise parking structure cost $1 to $2 a day and was an easy, safe walk from almost any building). I paid for a rec center that had faculty-only hours at the only times I could have used it. And the increase was such that it exceeded the state tax limits.

346 I know I've told this story before, but whatever...

At my last full time job I was a court clerk. A real butch looking girl came before the judge with a request for legal name change. Being friendly, the judge noted that she was a student at Rutgers, and asked her what her major was. She responded that she had just graduated with her Masters, so the judge asked her what her thesis was. Her reply:

The History of Lesbian Sado-Masochism in America

347 It's right about here that I mention that we once had a vibrant manufacturing sector where anyone with the aptitude could get OJT through formal apprenticeships and rise up through the ranks, gaining valuable hands-on experience that would serve as the foundation of a good career. College was always an option for those who wanted to advance, too. So was ownership of a bidness.

Alas, Progressive politicians were allowed to kill that. We could have that again, if we chose to do so.

348 Knew another young woman that read "Your Money or Your Life" when in high school. She learned how to cut gem stones. She was bicycling round the country. She had a bag of rough cut stone, that she could cut into gem quality and sell if she needed to. And she could find work with those skills.

377 87 As someone who teaches at a small Texas college, I'll strongly object to being called "third-tier."
The thing is that, after two decades of intersections hiring practices, the big schools have an ethnically diverse and largely female faculty that can't teach, can't write, and can't research. All the talent has been pushed into these smaller schools. The result is that not only are these small colleges much cheaper, but the quality of instruction is demonstratively superior. The classes are much smaller, as well. And not insanely politically partisan, as well.

But the law professors, many of whom never tried a case in their career, make big bank based on unlimited student loans.

This is in contrast to medical schools, which limit the supply of doctors by having small medical school classes and a smallish supply of schools.

Important Question: Should White Americans Be Forced to Literally Bend the Knee to Black Americans?

Before that, here's some Racial Hatred, Racial Supremacy and Systemic Racism in actual practice in the real world. Which hasn't been talked about except on Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity and a half dozen other conservative venues.

The alleged "conservative" media has of course suppressed this the same as the leftwing media they supposedly oppose has.

Could it be that that particular thug was animated to beat the shit out of an ancient white guy because he drinks from a fire hydrant of noxious anti-white propaganda every day?

Shouldn't the media, which is forever playing Hall Monitor to everyone (but mostly white people) to patrol their language be concerned about the possibility that a constant torrent of anti-white hate speech could spur some to think that there is a Social Permission to assault or kill whites?

Given that the media itself is a prime propagator of this sort of hate speech -- always promoting every story featuring white-on-black violence, but ruthlessly suppressing the many more instances of black-on-white violence -- shouldn't they be more concerned about the effect of constant IV drip reinforcement of racial animus that they themselves are providing?

If there's no worries about "backlash" against whites for making every single case of white-on-black virus a national story that dominates the headlines, why are they so absolutely scrupulous about making sure that almost no stories about black-on-white crime are reported even locally, never mind nationally?

Four years ago, on Evergreen Community State College campus, #Woke minority progressives began imposing race-based rules on whites. Whites could not attend campus on certain days. Whites could not speak when a minority was minoritysplaining to them about Oppression.

Whites even had to fetch black students things, like a power charger or a bottle of water, when a black student needed us.

No one really said anything. No one objected.

No one said, "This is just Jim Crow enforced racial subservience with the serial number filed off and the colors reversed. This is unamerican and cannot be tolerated."

Nah. Everyone was quiet.

It was an uncomfortable topic, you see, and you can't expect paid professional writers in the political press to ever risk their career advancement schedule by writing about an uncomfortable topic.

Our brave Conservative Press -- the only people in America who cannot lose their jobs by speaking about an uncomfortable topic -- have decided as a whole to just remain silent.

Hey guys, can you pause as you're leaving the room? We all want a chance to applaud you for your fearlessness.

Has ignoring the metastacization of "social justice" into increasingly virulent positive racism, and our tacit blessing of it by silence, make it "just go away"?

Why no. In fact, demands for racial subservience grew in intensity, aggressiveness, and ambition.

The Tucker Carlson monologue below is a must-watch.

Especially the part with the black man accosting a white woman on the street and demanding she kneel before him and apologize for her white privilege.

And... she does!

This is exactly what we have allowed -- by refusing, like cowards, to condemn it and stay firmly that this shall not be abided -- to become an increasingly mainstream view of how American whites must bow and scrape to any minority who demands to be treated as a Racial Aristocrat.

A female friend of mine said something like this: "It's not just maddening that a black man is now bullying a white women on the street and demanding she prostrate themselves like a servant -- it's that you're not even permitted to say this is wrong, and why it is wrong. You're supposed to remain silent and through your silence confirm that this is okay."

I sure the hell don't want to demand blacks kneel before me like slaves and beg my forgiveness for attacking white people, like that old man in Governor Whitmer's nursing home.

That is racist. That is absurdly racist. That is actually racially supremacist to demand.

If I did that, I imagine I'd be fucking punched. I mean, cancelled on twitter of course, but I imagine I'd get some Real Life Dunking too.

And I could not claim I did not deserve it.

So please tell me:

Why are whites expected to kneel for blacks to apologize for shit that some random white guy did?

Where did this particular black guy get the idea that he could accost a stranger of another race and demand that she demonstrate racial subservience to him?

In that exchange, between a larger, stronger, more physically intimidating black man, and a smaller, weaker, less imposing white woman, who had the "Racial Power"?

Who was the oppressor in that situation?

That's right -- the White Woman was. Because Shut Up You Racist.

And why are the alleged Guardians of the Constitution, the "conservative" media, so hesitant to call this out and say that this is a racist evil that must stop?

I've been warning about the New Jim Crow -- just like the Old Jim Crow, filled with rules about how one race must defer to another, and must never talk back to the other race, and must even now kneel like a supplicant before one race -- for a while now.


Is this racial justice? Demanding white people now become steppinfechits for the black superior race?

By the way, once we speed up immigration and give the vote to millions of illegals -- and white people become a minority faster than they would otherwise -- do you imagine these demands for whites to subordinate themselves and give deference to other races will suddenly stop, or will it become even more extreme and more foul now that they have more power to impose it?

I say it will become worse -- much worse.

Especially because white liberals are affirmatively stating that yes, whites should be made to be an officially second-class caste, and white "respectable conservatives" are endorsing this view tacitly by refusing to speak a word against it.

I'm sure this will all go away. Ignore the fact that it gets worse every year -- just assume it will go away if we continue pretending it away.

We ignored it when we first saw it at Evergreen State College, and now we all have the pleasure of living as captives on Evergreen State College campus.

So now that the Evergreen State College racial caste system is now taking hold in the cities, I'm sure if we just ignore it more, it will finally just go away.

Without anyone having to say something "controversial," like "No race (including the white race) should be made into a subservient lower caste and forced to carry around the collective guilty of every sin committed by a member of that race."

See, that's "controversial" for the "respectable" conservative media because it mentions that maybe whites are subject to racial prejudice and hatred and the respectable conservatives' liberal friends have all declared that it is racist to suggest that whites could be the victims of racism.

Racism against whites is not racism; racism against whites is merely Just Deserts and the Long Arc of History Bending Towards Racial Justice with Some Racial Vengeance Too.


Special Acknowledgment to John Sexton. one of the very few people in the paid "conservative" press who has covered the Evergreen State College racial caste system.

I have to admit that while I read most of his coverage, I only occasionally wrote about it myself. And some of it was so infuriating -- and so dispiriting, so depressing -- I couldn't force myself to read more of it.

But he kept on documenting every ugly racist bit of it.

Well it kept you out of jail. It also kept you out of fun though.

28 White liberals are the real enemy.

Every problem we face today can be traced back to them.

29 The only two times I've gone down on one knee in my life is to propose to my wife of 28 years and to assume a firing position and I intend to keep it that way.

32 It is quite possible this has gone too far... I know many of my aquaitances think this is bull c**p and they are not particularly conservative even some are Hispanic and this is too far... We shall see...

35 Appropriate justice for legitimate atrocities? Sure.

Peacefully protest when it doesn't happen? Of course.

A seat at the table to propose and work on solutions? Absolutely.

Reparations and enslave and hurt and kill whitey? Ain't gonna happen...EVER.

The white guilt crowd can mea culpa and kneel all they want. The rest of us cracker ass crackers won't.

My biggest concern is we get 4 more years of the same crap. Russia, impeachment, and squirrels. But then what? I'm not to optimistic for 2025 and beyond.

37 We bend the knee during the Struggle Meeting but before we Denounce our family, friends and neighbors. After all of that we write our confession for a merit point and lenient treatment.

41 I bow to no one except G-D. Strike me and I will stand again even taller.

I have been the recipient of some mob attention back in the 60's. I didn't back up then and will not back up now.

42 This is more to break the American ethos than anything else. Our system depends on a united populace of free, equal and guaranteed rights. It doesn't yield to race, religion or anything else. It depends on the ideal the equal liberty and justice is shared by all citizens who are "American" before anything else.

That is, it does not bow to any one person or groups ideals.

They want to divide you, because it is easier to control us like that. Together, united we can kick their asses as we always have. Assaults on liberty don't rouse one race, they all people who live under the blanket of freedom. They don't want that. They can't have that to succeed in tearing our republic down.

Don't let them divide you against your neighbor or subjugate you with their tactics. Fight it. Understand your neighbor and fight with them against this scourge.

Or to change a flat on the side of the road, or is that considered taking a knee?
