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.

I think the Congressman in question may have said something about liking Jesus once, so that means his ex girlfriend is allowed to post nude photos of him online as reciprocity. It's under the Penumbras and Emanations clause of the Constitution.

22 The worst part for me is not so much that the kid is an asshole. It's that he's the end product exemplar of how the left undermines society.

He is a success story for the left. That is what they want to produce.

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.

Posted by: mindful webworker - the other side of this life at November 23, 2017 02:14 PM (ftdxp)

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.

47 BTW: "Dogs are God's way of apologizing for your relatives" is so cute and funny it didn't even make me (very) sad that this is our first holiday season without a dog.

Just learned that OutOfTown son is bringing, besides his Mrs and the grandbaby, his two dogs, the oversized one with the property-destroying tail and the neurotic undersized one.

I'm sure daughter's cat will be delighted.

48 I hope it's a hoax. MisHum posted the story a while back about the woman who trained squirrels to mutilate her ex boyfriend. I guess he does it to test the hypothesis, "things have gotten so bad, there's no such thing as parody any more. Anything would be plausible".

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.

81 #CatsOnTables

Since it would be cruel (albeit hilarious to YooToob) to cover the table with mousetraps...

...cover the table with sticky-notes, glue side up.

After a while, cats will either get the message...

...or be walking around covered with sticky notes (again, YooToob fodder).

83 Carol: Mouse traps on the table (set of course). It only takes a couple of times, does no real harm to the cat, and the cat will definitely remember. After that, the occasional unset trap will work just as well.

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."

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.

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.

28 Earlier on Thursday, Netanyahu denounced what he called offensive remarks by Hotovely, in which she said US Jews are people that never send their children to fight for their country and that most of them are having quite convenient lives.

A statement issued Thursday morning from his office said that Netanyahu condemns Tzipi Hotovelys offensive remarks regarding the American Jewish community. The Jews of the Diaspora are dear to us and are an inseparable part of our people.

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.

Don't want to add anything to this just a reminder, with snow season coming to cover up your oil tank filler with some sort of plastic cup or something so that no melting snow gets into your tank.

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. He was in the army, one of NK's "elite" and - was still malnourished, with tapeworms. So imagine the shape the non-elite are in. People wonder why the North Koreans don't revolt. Hard to revolt when you are starving.

And many of them, born and raised in hell, think the whole world is like that.

We were fortunate enough to be born in the greatest country on earth. That's something.

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)

180 @164 Absolutely agree. I thought Moore was a bit nutty, but now he needs to be supported 100%. Else our elections will be like Kollege Kangaroo Kourts for sexual allegations.

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.

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.

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.

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.

yeah the guy was not a first choice, (Mo Brooks was) but he will vote right. Moore was not well versed in all the current debate topics, that will probably change. In any case, Mitch once again gets it shoved up his ... nose. (assuming Moore wins by 10)

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.

The FDA recommends that if you want to make your own infused garlic oil, you should prepare it fresh and use it right away. If you are saving any leftovers, you must refrigerate it right away and use within a week.

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.

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.

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.

cool about your Washington cousin ... yeah, most Americans with family here from before 1900 are probably linked a few times somewhere in the family tree.

The ancestry.com thing is a little expensive, but I may do it for a few months to collect as much as possible. A guy recently called me from Phoenix ... some distant cousin ... we exchanged some pics and I had one he loved, a grandparent of ours he didn't have a pic of, from late 1800's.

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.

Once we learn to manipulate the genome at will, this will be a non-issue. We don't really know how mixing adds value, if at all.

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.

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.

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.

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

Over the past few years, a majority of states have passed legislation to criminalize the nonconsensual distribution of nude photos, and it’s unclear if the photo violates Texas’ law against so-called revenge porn, which often is maliciously shared by jilted exes and hackers.

76 Why the left hates Thanksgiving? What about so-called New Year's?? I mean, who deemed January 1 to be New Year's Day? The Pope! That's who.

Our society's adherence to the Western (white!) calendar derives from Ancient Rome (which invaded Africa) and the Roman Catholic Church (anti-woman) while disregarding the calendars of Babylon, Islam and countless indigenous peoples from around the world -- but especially Islam.

You know what else is an outdated remnant of the white patriarchy? Base 10! I use a number system based on 7.063905, because I'm free. And in my number system, 1620 -- the date etched into Plymouth Rock -- converts to 666.

It's all there in plain sight. You just need the right number system and the right way to look at the world. I'm enlightened, that's what.

83 If the 19th-century descendants of Pilgrims and Puritans in the New Colony could repeat at Brook Farm, Fruitlands, Hopedale, and elsewhere the 17th-century mistakes made by settlers in the Old Colony, then one begins to see how 20th- and 21st-century people in far off lands could too. Some ideas prove so seductive that even painful experience cannot dissuade.

122 Why is it so hard for the left to be thankful? The answer is as easy as pumpkin pie. The left is a movement built on resentment. And resentment and gratitude are opposing emotions.

========

Exactly. The left knows that resentment is what gives them momentum. If feminists and BLMers were suddenly thankful for all the freedoms they had, the movements would collapse. To be thankful means being content with what you have, and to think that you might have been treated better than you deserve. Imagine Sandra Fluke being grateful for her education rather than stewing over paying for birth control.

Hi grammie! Happy to help. In fact, this is my cookbook contribution.
I use a Weber charcoal grill and the indirect cooking method - two separate piles of briquettes on the sides with a drip pan in between. Place the grill with the handle openings over the charcoal piles so you can add briquettes during cooking.
Using a 12-14 pound bird, rinse thoroughly and remove the bags of turkey parts from inside, and sew the neck and body cavities closed with butchers twine and a poultry needle. Tie the legs together and fold the wings under. Coat the whole bird with oil and salt and pepper to taste. Place in the center and cook for about 2 hours or until the timer thing pops up. Add briquettes as necessary during cooking. 5 or 6 per side every 30 minutes or so.
Let rest 15 minutes or so after removing from grill before carving. Comes out perfect every time. Enjoy!

The three paid journalists are just the ones who wrote on Russia and just the payments for Russia stories I suspect.

I think they would find a lot of other paid-for journalists and stories and the actual blockbuster here is that Hillary's campaign illegally funneled campaign cash through their lawyer and Fusion GPS to pay journalists to help their campaign--money laundering and fraudulent-reporting of campaign expenditures. The campaign needed to hide this expenditure as it STINKS!

I think Hillz and her handlers all got used to being in an administration and being high power lobbyists, and forgot that they were subject to laws.

The campaign was handled just like a political/legislative pressure action that included outing and targeting legislators who opposed them, planting stories to indicate correct public opinion and to create astroturf online and in polls to drive the narrative that resistance was futile.

They forgot that a large number of people are sick of this, and a goodly number would have been as likely to vote for Hillz as for Pol Pot.
(The disagreement between the two is about implementation, not results, and I think enough people could smell that.)

What is so odd are the weak sisters who flipped, and discovered they had a problem.

191 Good morning and Happy Thanksgiving, Horde!

I still haven't received any bills for my recent hospital stay, and I've nervously been waiting for multiple shoes to drop. This morning I got an e-mail from the insurance company telling me to log in to their website to view the Explanations of Benefits.

I haven't been to the website in a while, and there are quite a lot of EOBs. There are a handful of charges in the $200 range from the radiology department and various other providers, but the real biggie is the hospital bill. It looks like I will be billed $3050, which is quite doable. The full charge before insurance was $66,000, which is nuts. Who could afford to pay that?

I'm sure there will be other charges that haven't shown up yet, but that was the one I was really worried about.

I was stationed in Korea for Thanksgiving 1990. Since most Korean homes do not have an oven (at least the ones around my hooch) we decided to use a Weber grill to cook the turkey. Since a lot of alcohol and amateur chefs were involved. we didn't set it up quite as elaborately. However, aside from a bit of charbroiling on the bottom of the bird, it turned out to be the best turkey I've ever eaten.

Quote of The Day

Washington, D.C.
October 3, 1863

By the President of the United States of America.

A Proclamation.

The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defence, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquillity and Union.

In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.

Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-eighth.

By the President: Abraham Lincoln

William H. Seward,
Secretary of State

The true story of Thanksgiving.

*****

Tomorrow, when you don't want to watch the NFL, check out this classic episode of WKRP in Cincinnati.


Don't have time to watch the entire episode?


*****


In case you wanted to drop a turkey or two out of a plane. It's legal for now.

The annual, reasonably disgraceful tradition of an “anonymous” pilot dropping live turkeys from hundreds of feet in the air in Yellville, Arkansas, continued this fall, with several birds dropped on Oct. 14. The FAA said then they were looking into it, but it conceded to HuffPost on Saturday that there was nothing they could do to stop it.

Officials say the event, which is known locally as the “turkey drop,” is out of their control, because the pilot doesn’t appear to be breaking any state or local laws. The FAA told HuffPost they examined their own statutes relating to the matter and came to the same conclusion.

Types.
Deletes.

Never mind.

*****

What will be a point of contention at the Dinner Table tomorrow? Trump/Clinton, Bears/Packers, Yankees/Red Sox? Green Beans, fruit or vegetable?

Whether you love them or want to eradicate them from the Earth, you'll probably see green beans on your Thanksgiving table this year.

And since you can't avoid them, you may as well impress your relatives with this fun bean fact: the green bean is actually not a vegetable, but a fruit.

At least to a botanist, anyway.

As long as they have Campbell's Golden Mushroom Soup and a boat load of French's French Fried Onions on them I really don't care.

In just a few short hours Black Friday will be here. Need some extra cash for those presents?

4. Donate a Testicle. The payout for this is $35,000

On a episode of “Extreme Cheapskates “a Las Vegas man figured out a way to make some money by signing up for medical trials. He saved himself more than $750. That inspired him to take it one step further. Most recently he also agreed to donate one of his testicles. But they didn’t just leave him hanging. They replaced it with an artificial one and paid him $35,000. It was reported that he used the money to purchase a Nissan 370 Z.

Thanksgiving and other holiday dinners often include alcohol. How to set the mood.

The desired mood of your Thanksgiving meal should determine what type of alcohol you serve: red wine for a sleepy, relaxed atmosphere or spirits for a sexy, confident air. That's the conclusion of a new survey analyzing how different types of alcohol make people feel. The reasons behind the feelings aren't fully understood, but researchers say there are clear trends in the emotions certain alcoholic beverages brought out in 30,000 people, aged 18 to 34, from 21 countries. For example, more than 60% said red wine made them feel sleepy, while 53% said it made them feel relaxed, reports the Guardian. Similarly, nearly 60% of participants said spirits made them feel confident and energetic, while 42% said spirits made them feel sexy.

Let me guess, puking up a 12 pack on your host's shoes is not a good idea?


*****


Do you have a nap planned for tomorrow? Don't blame it on the turkey.

Here’s the lowdown: turkey contains the amino acid L-tryptophan, which produces sleep-promoting serotonin and melatonin. But turkey has about the same amount of tryptophan as other meats. It may even have a built-in secret weapon against sleepiness: an abundance of protein, which can regulate insulin levels and actually combat fatigue. So don’t blame the turkey for your tiredness; the heavy load of carbs that made up the rest of the meal are likely the culprits. Here’s what turkey really does to your body.

35 Officials say the event, which is known locally as the "turkey drop," is out of their control, because the pilot doesn't appear to be breaking any state or local laws.

Arkansas has no laws on the books regarding cruelty to animals? I would think that dropping semi-flightless birds from a plane, where 2 out of the 12 dies on impact with the water, would constitute cruelty.

WUT

Posted by: bluebell at November 22, 2017 09:56 PM (UoSKV)

Were you absent that day?

They had split up because he finally came out of the closet. (First thing I said to my husband the day we met them was 'That guy is gay'.) This guy was really wealthy. Owns the Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn here in this town...along with various other hotels around the midwest, apartment buildings and a couple of restaurants.

Anywho...his gay lover asked him to meet him at a seedy hotel down the hwy from here. He did and it was either outright murder or sexual asphyxiation gone wrong.

So the lover calls a friend to ask him to 'help him with something' and goes to pick up the friend. While driving back to the seedy hotel he tells the friend he killed, let's call him 'Mike'. They go to the store and get tarps and cleaning supplies. Go to the apt. Mike was living in and take all his watches and some credit cards that were there. Go back to the seedy hotel and wrap 'Mike's' body in the tarp and put in back of Mike's Porsche SUV. While driving around trying to decide where they're going to hide the body, a cop pulls up behind them for something like a tail light being out. They proceed to tear ass down the hwy., get off on an exit, drive through someone's yard, through a fence and hit a tree. The two get out and run. 'Friend' was caught right away. Cop took him back to the car and went to look in the SUV...'Mike's' body was wrapped in a tarp in the back.
Took the cops a couple more hours to find the other guy.

Still both in prison awaiting trial...although the killer did try to escape prison by diggin with.a.spoon.

53 The reasons behind the feelings aren't fully understood, but researchers say there are clear trends in the emotions certain alcoholic beverages brought out in 30,000 people, aged 18 to 34, from 21 countries. For example, more than 60% said red wine made them feel sleepy, while 53% said it made them feel relaxed, reports the Guardian. Similarly, nearly 60% of participants said spirits made them feel confident and energetic, while 42% said spirits made them feel sexy.

Also, would you rather live in a country where people are free to carry on this harmless tradition?

108 I've had turkey fixed like that before - with bacon on it.

It was really moist and delicious. I'm not a big turkey eater, but that was pretty good as I recall.

I like steak better, but it's not traditional for Thanksgiving.

113 My youngest daughter is doing Thanksgiving dinner this year as she has the past few years.. she does a good job,, she has her Mom's sausage dressing recipe down to a T - which, quite frankly is all I care about the meal.. I'll make sweet potatoes, but I am the only one who eats 'em.. so a bit of dark meat, a big helping of dressing, some sweet potatoes and a ton of gravy, and I am good to go.

So.. tonight I made a whole pan of turkey necks just for me and my wife.. OMG were they good! 3 hours in a 350 degree oven with only salt/pepper and butter.. dayumn good! For those of you who have never partaken in turkey necks.. you must some day try them..

132 From the last thread:

We're hosting 3/4 of our family, and this is wife of a little over one years first time meeting most of my family. (We live half a nation away from them).

Being of Italian descent, she has let her inner Dago freak flag fly creating Italian food for the feast, which of course includes all the traditional stuff.

Beef and Sausage Braciole, Beef and Sausage lasagna, Antipasto, Zuppa Toscana soup, Minestrone and Pasta Fagiole.

Folks had better be hungry and take go bags as this volume of food is insane. 2 refrigerators are already full.

Of course, it's just old guy, singer/songwriter stuff... a lot of it anyway.

And weak lyrics at that.

Daddy made it through the big one

Look at it this way, you probably couldn't eat more than two or three pounds of food if you had to. It isn't possible to gain more weight than what you consume. In point of fact, probably not half of what you eat can be converted to body mass. So, max damage couldn't be more than a pound or so.

I was watching the TV Land original series "Teachers" last night. Anyway, I think at least one of the writers is a bit of a secret moron.

There was a scene where a young student catches his female teacher smoking, in her car. When the student calls her on it, she denies it even though it was obvious she's guilty. "I wasn't smoking!"

The kid replies, "sure you were! I saw you. Now I know both my heroes smoke! You, and Obama!"

Anyway, I thought it was a cute jab.

Max and Aida are recovering nicely from their surgeries. Dot and Dutchess went to the vet today. Dot was diagnosed with a bladder infection and Dutchess had an epileptic seizure just getting into the car, poor thing. Delilah is now in season (at 26 months, her first) and therefore a house guest for the next month.

I was fortunate to sit in for the drummer twice when he couldn't be there.
Played with Gary for four years back in the 90's, same trio as now.

Try True North Live at Liberty Hall for the next one. Great tune and you can see Gary.
Wish I knew how to get ahold of you, I'd point you to one where you could see me.

"Sec. 3.

So how does that work? Is it like a conclave where the Roman Catholic cardinals have to select a new Pope? Doesn't that have the potential to get rather messy and drawn out? It does sound like a clusterf*ck.


Although regarding At first this would seem to be more "democratic" in a Leftist view in that one couldn't directly "buy" a legislator, I can resonate with that sentiment.

269 Evening Horde of The Thankful......(Ol Abes on Rushmore for a reason)......

Hot tub worthy quote MisH......Excellent.

On the day of Thanksgiving, remember y'all that the USA is still the Beacon that the rest of world strives to emulate It's the WHY we're under constant assault.

Freedom resonates in a Person's SOUL.........sadly, so do other urges. And yet, FREEDOM still reigns. In fact, take a look around the World.....more Folks enjoy more Freedom Today......than ever before.

I reckon most of the Horde of Awesome behave in a manner that epitomizes what Freedom (Responsible, Reasonable, Rational, Etc) represents in y'alls everyday lives. Just so y'all know....Freedom is contagious.....HA!........

The point is simple, we live in an Era of FREEDOM........unprecedented really.

Y'all wanna give Thanks today.......give Thanks and realize how truly BLESSED we really, truly are.

Bless The Horde of Bountiful......Y'all Deserve It.

from "working committees"."


And we all know the types who would enjoy being part of "People's Working Committees""


"Those who take up the vocation of politics, as Max Weber insisted, first must have an extraordinary amount of free time. "

Anyone who works for a living, or who has responsibilities which can't be shirked for hours of meetings picking delegates would not have any representation. But then that is the idea and ideal wanted.

390 Just got back from an early Thanksgiving dinner with my friends -- turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, and (fresh!) green beans, topped off with pumpkin pie and whipped cream. But the real topper was a big slice of melodrama: the 1942 Bette Davis/Olivia de Haviland movie In This Our Life. Make that a slice and a half. After that we're all taking the day off tomorrow and just relax (although I have to go to work at 11 pm).

So, to all my fellow 'Rons and 'Ronettes at AoSHQ, a very Happy Thanksgiving!!

But...

I didn't even bother trying to argue points like everyone else had. I just kept kicking him in the balls. I also would just block all his sock/troll accounts that suddenly came out of nowhere to support him.

413 Infidel, thankfully family is coming to our house. Namely my other sister, her husband (they're estranged but get along just well enough to get through the holidays relatively bloodlessly) and their kids, my 16-year-old nephew Chase and 12-year-old (to be 13 in 201 niece, Skylar.

I especially try to have conversations with Skylar, but it's tough. She's a budding early teenager and is already getting pretty stick of grownups. I tell everyone, I'm not excited for her to turn 13 because it'll probably be 8 years before she will talk to any of us again.

Skylar is smart though. I joke she'll have a system: eyeroll to the left means 'yes,' eyeroll to the right means 'no.' ;-)

Also, yes it's hot, but not nearly as hot as Phoenix metro. Thanks to elevation at least 10 to 15 degrees cooler.

419 @ qdpsteve.

El Paso is lovely, in an arid desert kind of way.

The Hill Country NW of a line 'tween San Antonio and Austin, is spectacular.

S.E. TX, East South n' East of Houston? Less (flatter) terrain, more humid. But the saltwater proximity cannot be beat.

SOUTH Texas, Corpus down to Brownsville. More rural (to the extreme), and certain areas therein are BLUE STATE populations.

Do your diligence, and proceed accordingly.

And avoid the D/FW area at all costs.

Plano and Carrolton are Horde level conservative.

But the traffic and over built congestion make Houston look like Hooterville.

I think I did well on the verbal interview today. The Questionnaire with typewritten answers, bleck I made a typo. Had to print it off. (Audio and video cameras everywhere as it is working with community corrections. must turn in all work.) So made the correction and printed another copy. Wrote draft and 'this is what nerves do' on the first draft. We shall see.

Posted by: qdpsteve at November 23, 2017 02:54 AM (eMKNe)

453 407 Also, I thought people here would be interested:

I have a sister and bro-in-law who, like me, don't want to wait until California is literally Apocalypse Now to leave. They want to pick up and move everything to another state, too.

As you all know, I personally like Nevada and Arizona, but am open-minded about the whole thing. Anyway, my bro-in-law likes... El Paso, Texas.

Anyone here from there, or lives there? Any thoughts? I know it's pretty hot in the summer.

An interesting place. The nicer parts of town are the portions further from the border. I agree with Jim: it is nice, in a desert, arid sort of way. I can see its appeal to people from CA: it has something like 300 days of sunshine a year. (Be advised that it is also a blue area.) It's a major city: about 550,000 people live there. The city across the river (Juarez) has a million IIRC.

I live in the Panhandle. Flat, featureless for the MOST part (except for overpasses). Of course, you hit any of the nearby canyons and it is spectacular. The cotton crops are being harvested so the sides of the roads have lots of cotton balls. Like El Paso, not much humidity up this way, though we have ag up here. Around El Paso, not as much.

455 I moved to Texas from Calif in Feb.

I prefer the middle of West Texas to El Paso. I wanted the lower cost of living in a small town.

Surprisingly, El Paso has a very low crime rate. you'd think it would be high but the crooks seem to stay in Juarez!

If you want a larger city, El Paso seems fine to me.

Posted by: ArthurK at November 23, 2017 02:59 AM (XMCS3)

470 Judge in Seattle strikes down income tax on the wealthy. State law still prohibits income taxes despite unanimous city council vote to the contrary.
Basically the city council wants to change the state tax system. Silly me, I thought that was the job of the state legislature.
"At the [Washington] Supreme Court, Seattle officials hope to attack the long-standing interpretation that income taxes are property taxes, opening the door to what proponents see as a fairer tax system statewide." - Seattle Times
This should liven up Sen. Schumer's turkey day tax talks.

471 The turkeys enjoyed at the first Thanksgiing feast were actually descendents of the of the domesticated turkeys brought back to Europe by the Spaniards from Mexico.

Turkeys became very popular throughout Europe as a quick and easy source of meat (protein) and were also brought by the English settlers in MA.

The Indians did not provide Wild Turkeys for the "historic" first Thanksgiving feast.

And now you know the truth of the story, FWIW.

I would be unsurprised if the number of rifles that had a stoppage that could not be cleared by immediate action was zero.

Given 5000 rds on hand, I'd expect someone to bring multiple rifles to swap dre to barrels heating up, though.

Mid-80s, we swapped M16A1s for A2s. As part of that, we had to do a familiarization fire (not qualification). Basically, get used to the new trigger with burts instead of full auto, longer barrel, different handguards, etc. Fun shoot! 2 basic loads (420 rds total). After 4 or 5 mags, I needed to put on a glove to hold the handguard. That was bursts of 2 to 3 rds 5 secs or so apart.

532 Addendum to #529 --

You can't prove a negative. For example, I don't believe that Elizabeth Warren leaves bowls of antifreeze around her house in order to kill neighborhood dogs, but no one can prove that she has never done this. Now you can truthfully say that the possibility that Elizabeth Warren poisons dogs has been considered, and there is no proof that she doesn't engage in this psychotic, depraved activity.

Does Senator Warren poison dogs? Well, that's just a question. At some point, it becomes a fair question. I'm just asking questions, after all. By the way, Senator Warren has never condemned this activity as far as I know.

26 You know what the opposite of fear is?

Trust.

The left does not trust anyone, and demands they be given the power to implement their utopian schemes or everyone is evil, hateful, racist, sexist, bigoted, homophobic and everything else they scream.

Because they are afraid. Afraid of the world, afraid of everyone else, afraid of the future, afraid of the unknown, and afraid that maybe, just maybe those crazy people might be right.

They have no trust, so they only have fear.

Thanksgiving is about gratitude and trust.

You must now be allergic to EVERYTHING, including:

- gluten
- dairy
- soy
- eggs
- nightshades (potato, tomato, eggplant, pepper, etc. etc.).
- alliums (onion and garlic)
... etc. etc.

Basically, everything that might imaginably be edible is now in the "allergy" spectrum.

And as a true hipster, you MUST be allergic to ALL of them!

97 I'm making the turkey, the sides and the appetizers. Not the pies though.
Posted by: Tami at November




We, meaning I, have been doing Thanksgiving for years as the YankeeFifths' Refugee Thanksgiving. My complaint about the turkey is the time. The sides are easy it is just having enough ovens to get them all done simultaneously. The pies are a bitch because if your oven is not calibrated just right you burn the crust then the whole thing is ruined.

99 Ugh. Little dog Sophie got sick this afternoon. Really sick. Spent hours at the Vet's office. Heavy drooling, trembling, diarrhea, pretty alarming. Looks like pancreatitis. Vet administered fluids, sundry meds. Just got home. She seems better already.

Mrs. H. is attending her aged mother some 5 hours away, so I'm solo. Plans for tomorrow are to work Thanksgiving dinner for the Veteran's Rescue Quarters. Probably 200 or so meals to be served to sheltered Vets.

Hope I can leave doggeh alone to do that. We'll see. Otherwise, I'm going to have to have cereal for Thanksgiving.

The pies are done the cranberry bread is done and the house smells wonderful. Older daughter's turn to host this year, just a short drive in local
(read non existent) traffic so I don't worry.

Have a blessed Thanksgiving, people. We really DO have so much to give thanks for.

103 Happy Thanksgiving horde! From Casa Redux. Heading to a friend's place in CT for the day (compete with local HS football game viewing) ~ then off to a place we rented in a small coastal town for the weekend. I already finished my contributions to dinner: two pecan pies, butternut squash soup (to be served with sour cream, grated cheese and pine nuts), blackened Brussel sprouts with bacon, walnuts and onion and, of course some lovely American Sauvignon Blanc. I am also bringing the materials to make a round of signature cocktails to start: Cranberry Manhattans with Knob Creak bourbon. My friend is doing the bird and the potatoes and a pumpkin pie and some other stuff. She also just got a new puppy. It's a rescue mutt from post hurricane Puerto Rico. Will snap some pics for the pet thread. In case I don't speak to you all between now and then, blessings upon all ~ thanks to God for our wonderful Republic ( as messed up as t is right now it is still better than just about everything else) and remember to give thanks for the fact that Hilary Clinton will never, ever be POTUS.

115 When I was in grade school, Thanksgiving Eve was Bomb Drill Day. We called it a "Going Home Drill" because we went home early. The idea was that we had enough advance warning of a Soviet nuclear onslaught that we could go home and die instead of die in the school's hallway.

Of course they never called it that. It could be a drill for any emergency, like a tornado -- but sending children outdoors during a tornado threat didn't make sense, so we were practicing for Russian nukes.

I would always take these drills seriously. I'd walk home quickly according to the drill, and I wouldn't look around lest my eyes glance at the flash of an A-bomb on the horizon and go blind. Then I would stay in my house for the prescribed 30 minutes and cower in make-believe fear that the world was ending. Then I'd go outside and play football with my friends.

I miss the Cold War. The true meaning of Thanksgiving is lost without the Red Menace and its thermonuclear arsenal. Nowadays, I never happen across a building labeled as a fallout shelter. Now, it's all about turkey and Black Friday sales. We still have the turkey, but there's nary a thought about World War III. This makes me sad for the current generation of children who never prepared for a thermonuclear exchange.

Ah, well. I'm just being nostalgic, I guess.

Do whatever it takes, if you cook for a lot of people often, which I gather you do. It's wonderful. It's a luxury for sure, but when you have a big family and you're the one who hosts all the fiestas for both sides (me me me me), it's very worth it.

198 About a couple hours ago, I watched Charlie Brown try to kick a football but Lucy Van Pelt pulled it away. He did a flip in the air and landed on his back. It's a wonder the kid isn't paralyzed.

I haven't watched much football over the past couple of years, so I picture him playing ice hockey. Lucy's on the ice, too, being Lucy. Finally, Charlie Brown has had enough and he drops his stick and gloves and pulls the back of Lucy's sweater over her head and gives her what she's got coming to her. The ref gives him a five-minute major.

But here's where I get stuck. Sitting in the penalty box, would Charlie Brown say "Good grief" or "Rats"?

Canadian Thanksgiving is in October, after most of the crops are in, and weather is still normally amenable to travel.
Christmas is on Dec. 25, same as every place not on the Orthodox calendar.

Posted by: Alberta Oil Peon at November 22, 2017 09:54 PM (oPNmq)

205 It'll be a quiet T-Day here this year. Just the three of us: Mrs. JTB, myself, and Prince The Dog. So it will be a relaxing day. The turkey is done and the spuds, other sides and desserts are kept simple and easy. Bach CDs playing in the background, good coffee and an adult beverage to sip, with good books in reach. A cold morning walk with the pup. Our idea of a slice of heaven.

This will be Prince's first Thanksgiving with us. He smelled the turkey cooking for hours. Now he's resting to make sure he has the energy to chew tomorrow. For a dog, he's very good at planning ahead.

253 If anybody is interested I just created a userscript for acecomments.mu.nu to remove or replace characters that will make pixy blow up, rather than looking through a pasted text again and again to try to see the hiding special character.

Not sure how I should distribute it. Does anybody have any ideas?

Thanks.

Were you absent that day?

They had split up because he finally came out of the closet. (First thing I said to my husband the day we met them was 'That guy is gay'.) This guy was really wealthy. Owns the Hampton Inn and Holiday Inn here in this town...along with various other hotels around the midwest, apartment buildings and a couple of restaurants.

Anywho...his gay lover asked him to meet him at a seedy hotel down the hwy from here. He did and it was either outright murder or sexual asphyxiation gone wrong.

So the lover calls a friend to ask him to 'help him with something' and goes to pick up the friend. While driving back to the seedy hotel he tells the friend he killed, let's call him 'Mike'. They go to the store and get tarps and cleaning supplies. Go to the apt. Mike was living in and take all his watches and some credit cards that were there. Go back to the seedy hotel and wrap 'Mike's' body in the tarp and put in back of Mike's Porsche SUV. While driving around trying to decide where they're going to hide the body, a cop pulls up behind them for something like a tail light being out. They proceed to tear ass down the hwy., get off on an exit, drive through someone's yard, through a fence and hit a tree. The two get out and run. 'Friend' was caught right away. Cop took him back to the car and went to look in the SUV...'Mike's' body was wrapped in a tarp in the back.
Took the cops a couple more hours to find the other guy.

Still both in prison awaiting trial...although the killer did try to escape prison by diggin with.a.spoon.

275 Two days of appetizer cooking. Good stuff.

We have 4/6 of our family with us on the Farm this year. We used to do all of the cookingl, but as the kids are excellent cooks in their own right, John just does the turkey and a couple of pies. I do the mashed potatoes, and this year the apps which come out at 11 and count for lunch horse ovaries.

I don't know you people from Stanley Miles but you may find this tale amusing.

The house is all decorated for Thanksgiving. Lots of homegrown pumpkin and gourd displays, old times Golden Wheat dinnerware set to go, festive cloths, etc. Except for the actual dining room table which has just a beautiful cloth. So I mentioned the other day that the only thing I had left to do was a centerpiece for the table.

Daughter Kat said in jest, "Hey! Tony can do that."

Her husband Tony is a wonderful man. Very smart. We've known him since he was a first year grad student working with John. He spent 20 minutes the other day looking for Tukey's famous EDA book that they found for me. [Insert so many more stories which speak to the breadth of his knowledge and good humor] But I would not have listed interior decorating among his strengths.

So he did some research on centerpieces. Worked on it for two days. Concluded that Thanksgiving centerpieces were basically attractively arranged dead plant material.

He asked this morning-- and this was hilarious-- if I had a candle holder, the kind Scrooge would have carried. Of course! And then if there were more leaves to be added to the table. He needed scale.

What he came up with was beautiful. And personal on a level that only someone whose known you for only years and years, and who fell in love with your daughter, could have come up with.

Three very old books (I have thousands), all pertaining to food, stacked up in vertically random fashion, topped with a hurricane lamp and doused with a pile of colorful leaves.

I am thankful that along life's way John & I have collected some really wonder friends and sons-in law.

Thanks for your thoughts, Ace. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

285 Thought I'd pop in before lights out...in about an hour.

I was puzzled over this phrase above:

"I do the mashed potatoes, and this year the apps which come out at 11 and count for lunch horse ovaries."

I could not understand it. Or decipher it. I thought, well, I'm not a farm girl, but horse ovaries sound like a weird thing.

Then it clicked. Apps were appetizers. And lunch horse ovaries were lunch hors-d'oeuvres. I laughed so hard I had tears.

Omgosh. Autocucumber strikes again, and it's a classic.
Horse ovaries, the Thanksgiving of kings.

Of Course: Germany Arrests Six Syrian "Refugees" For Plotting Christmas Day Terror Attack

Pretending a threat doesn't exist does not end the threat. In fact, it aids the threat to maturation into a slaughter.

This sounds like a sequel to the attack that took place last Christmas in Berlin. Thatís when Tunisian refugee Anis Amri drove a truck through an outdoor Christmas market killing 12 people and injuring dozens more. Amri had pledged allegiance to ISIS before the attack.

This raid comes at the worst possible time for Merkel. As Jazz pointed out Monday, negotiations to form a new coalition government in Germany just collapsed. Merkel had been trying to form a government that included a right-wing party and the green party in addition to two other parties. And underlying Merkel's inability to form the new coalition was disagreement on immigration.

157 I taught my kids a very important lesson today. They still have some candy left from Halloween. They decided instead of gorging on it for 1 or 2 nights, they'd save it and eat a little bit for several days. SMAAAHHHT.

Anyway they asked me if I could bring them some candy to their rooms upstairs since I was downstairs. I said OK but I'm taking one piece from each of your bags. They said, what no way that's not fair. I said well it's a tax you have to pay me. And my oldest kid says, daddy you're right, taxes do suck.

The youngest says, well I don't want to pay your stupid tax. And I said, OK then the penalty for not paying your taxes is I get to keep all your candy. That's how the govt does it. To which she said, fine you can have your stupid tax.

And just like that I think I created 2 life-long fiscal conservatives, LOL.

I don't think they're concerned about diversity as such.

In the past, we've tried to pressure certain nations, such as Russia or nations in Africa, to be more tolerant of homosexuals. Ie., US liberals really believe in homosexuality as a core value and have tried to promote it world wide. The same with abortion and forced sterilization.

As far as I know, we've never tried to promote diversity as such. We've never tried to get China to admit Africans or India to admit Iranians, etc.

So diversity as such is not really a core value. They want a return to feudalism, a nation of serfs ruled by an oligarchy. "Diversity" is just standard lefty misdirection.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Harvard University is being investigated by the Justice Departmentís Civil Rights Division. The investigation is looking into claims that Harvard discriminates against Asian Americans in admissions. The DOJ claims Harvard is refusing to cooperate and has yet to turn over a single requested document...

Isn't this the school that was so pig heatedly progressive and overly concerned with snowflakes that they decided to cover up the frizeof a musket carried by a Massachusetts Bay Colony Separatist from the 1600's?. John Harvard, a young minister in the 1600' gave his entire library and half of his estate to fund the college. I can guarantee you that the education the people in the liberal arts get there nowadays would be laughable and incomprehensible to the students back then They had to know Latin and Greek really well to get in. I don't know that many Asian students would be majoring in liberal arts but they deserve to get in if qualified.

59 Another reason Asians don't get in is because they are shallow. They are taught that grades alone matter, so they get straight A's, and perfect SAT's and maybe play an instrument, but have no substance beyond that. They all go to Kaplans to get coaching on the perfect application essay. At the end of the day the admissions committee has 10,000 identical applications with nothing distinguishing between them.

Anyway, try www.whatfinger.com. It's a news aggregator that's a lot better. Occasionally you'll see an msm link. They link Fox, for example. But often the MSM links are further down the page under the Fake News Quarantine Section banner (lol).

235 Tami.. I'm already hitting the hard stuff. Put the tree up today, decorated the house, made jewelry, took pic of said jewelry and posted to my shop. I hurt everywhere. My knees are screaming at me and my back hates me right now.

238 One stage of the differentiation came with Noah's sons. From Shem were descended the Semitic people (Jews, Arabs). From Japheth were descended Caucasians. From Ham were descended the other races (Negroes, Asians, etc.).

Is that in the actual Bible Bible?

Sounds like armchair racial categorizing.

240 For every dollar a person receives in food stamps, Pelosi said that $1.79 is put back into the economy. The U.S. Department of Agriculture cites an even higher figure of $1.84.



Now we just need to import a massive new population so we put them all on food stamps.

PROFIT!!!!

249 Actually, I wouldn't mind seeing Harvard go balls-to-the-wall. Henceforth, no more white admittees. If you allow white students, then you support white privilege. No more tokens, go full-hog.


And you would see no decrease in grades if that happened (as long as you could keep the whites and Asians for the STEM programs).

Wait, do you really believe Mueller is actually investigating something?

EVERYONE knows this collusion thing is a hoax, including Mueller.

Mueller is building a case for impeachment. That's the only reason he's there.

257 105 Just bought a Remington 870 Express from Cabela's online. Bass Pro Shops was asinine. 3 old goats working the counter. Over 100 people waiting. I got there at 11:30. Some people had been waiting since opening.
Posted by: rickb223 at November 22, 2017 06:55 PM (f/e+k)

Very nice. I've always had good experiences with Cabela's customer service. I have a retail store nearby now. I don't actually buy much from the store, but it's great to get to talk to their gun people. They seem to be knowledgeable and they really try to be helpful.

========

I think Shem's lineage through Abraham is explicitly given.

The other two are speculation, but I've come across it several times, and it didn't seem to be some sort of racist loony theories, such as Joseph Smith's theories about black people. I haven't really studied it in depth, to be honest, so it may be just weak sauce.
