48 Clicked a link to get to an online article from "Work and Money," showcasing, in one of those annoying click-through countdowns, from 18 down to 1, their opinion of "America's most successful small cities."

Number 1 is Bend, OR. The list includes places from all around, but there seems to be a theme, if you look at the demographics of each.

Lotsa white people, and few, if any, instances of "immigrant communities." Bend has 76,000 people and is over 91 percent white, with an AA "community" of only 0.5 percent.

That ain't much community.

So what's going on here?

Yes, Crowdstrike.
- Someone stole emails and gave 'em to Wikileaks.
- DNC then hired Crowdstrike to investigate and declare it was a hack by Russians in their report.
- They then destroyed the server after refusing to turn it over to the FBI. In the midst of all this Xavier Bacerra tuned over a copy of the server in attempt to pass it off as the original, IIRC?
- Wikileaks, after being blamed for working with Russian for the hack, pointed people to one of their classified memo drops that included mention that deep state had the ability to fake evidence of Russian hacking.

Jack Straw no doubt remembers more about this . . .

62 Marybeth #43:

Close enough. The betrayer left after Jesus fingered him, but he didn't go back to pick up the reward until after Jesus' arrest.

30 pieces of silver IIRC was about the price of a healthy slave.

A father in Australia fought off several dingoes after his toddler son was locked in the jaws and dragged by one of the wild dogs early Friday, emergency medical officials told local news outlets.

The 14-month-old was dragged by the back of his neck and suffered a fractured skull and deep cuts on his head from the attack.

The family was asleep in their campervan on Fraser Island in Queensland when a dingo entered and grabbed the child. Paramedic Ben Du Toit said his parents woke up when they heard their child screaming and the sound moving farther away.

Well, as an example for you...I burned a slash pile of 3 trees last fall. All the large portions (20-30" diameter logs) burned to ash within 24 hours...except for one 14 foot length. It looked like I spraypainted it black...but it refured to burn.

Yes, you could see the first whiff of this occurring even as the cathedral was burning, with BBC commentators mewling that the conflagration was "bringing people together", even as they refuse to report the pandemic vandalization of churches throughout France. As if such attacks were necessary to "bring people together".

The French government will likely make the site into a "shared cultural/spiritual space"...and the Vatican will support it.

That will last until Islam gathers enough strength in France to take it over outright.

299 The reason why Laminates are used in modern construction is that it is the only way to create a wood supertructure that has a known burn / damage rate.

Natural wood beams have no such consistency.

Like I said, one part of a tree will burn faster than another...and there is no way of changing this or knowing how it will behave in a fire.

Go watch the video. The more damning thing I think is that there is no way an electrical fire happened (according to him) and the fire started in an area "at the junction where the roof from the nave meets the roof from the transept and there was no site of work at that location"

The Morning Rant

talking ape.jpg
"I remember, a month or two before the 2016 election, that I did something I don't normally do: I actually went to the main page of the CNN website, and I was shocked. The page contained links to 6 of their main 'news' articles, all of them relentlessly negative toward Trump, and a couple of them virulently so. That's when I first realized that something had gone very, very wrong. There wasn't even a pretense of objectivity. So I was reminded of this yesterday when the Mueller report was released and there on CNN was this huge desk on the set (must've cost them a fortune) and behind it, there was a human centipede, 8 or 9 commentators, all relentlessly bashing Trump, eating and regurgitating each other's crap talking points. Again I was amazed, just like 2016, that any pretense of objectivity was gone. but now I guess that's just naivete on my part. The journalism standards have changed from 'you can run anything that you can corroborate with verified sources' to 'you can run anything that bashes Trump.' And then they get offended when Trump calls them the enemy of the people. I know because I hear them complaining about it when they're handing out journalisming awards to each other. Which I suppose they have to do, to shield themselves from the truth that most normal Americans hold them in the same regard as infomercials or used-car salesman. The guy who comes on Me-TV in the afternoon and promises you big money from suing some company if you've contracted mesothelioma is more reputable. Saul Goodman > Brian Stelter. Goodman actually works for a living. Stelter is just a pasty lump of dough."

Mr. President, light the match and burn it. These people are not just your personal enemies, they are dangerous to the Republic and MUST be held to account.

former architect of Notre Dame Cathedral (13 years). It's in French but
subtitled.A couple of take aways - 800 year old oak would take "a lot of
kindling" to ignite and would burn slowly. The fire started in an area
where there was no work being done. Finally, there are state of the art
sensors and 2 men on guard 24/7 monitoring them. At least the French
press isn't afraid to mention these things. Looks fishy as

221 Stanford White was a famous architect with outretastes. He kept a sex mansion above FAO Schwartz where he would wear out the society and entertainment ladies of NY. One of them was a young showgirl (Nesbit).

She later married an insane millionaire (Thaw) who couldn't take the fact that he'd been kicking in his stable before him. Nesbit told him it was rape so he wouldn't flip out on her for not being a virgin.

He responded by hunting down White at a rooftop party on one of the structures he designed (Madison Square Garden, IIRC) and capped him in front of G-d and everyone. It was a scandal.

238 Looking at Rachel Maddow's face the asymmetry seems to be mostly at the mouth, suggesting that she may have congenital absence of the depressor anguli oris muscle, or more appropriately (given her track record) "asymmretric crying facies syndrome"


"The depressor anguli oris muscle sometimes does not develop in utero, meaning the baby is born without the muscle. This absence is not noticeable when the baby is quiet; however, when crying a facial asymmetry is visible."

Since the 'depressor muscle is missing on one side, that corner of the mouth tends to turn upward when crying or showing other emotions.

And yes- there IS a code for that.

Seems to me like it would strengthen Bernie. He's both of the party and not. He was screwed by the machine in much the same way as Trump, and by some overlapping people most likely.

It could end up leading to the final destruction of the Establishment and Centrist wing of the Democratic Party as an electoral force within their own party.

Hanging Sanders out to dry stops the damage to the Dem brand.

Heh. I was at St. Paul's when an Evensong service began. A significant number of fellow tourists seemed genuinely perplexed.

Same thing happened at the Cathedral at Salisbury. It's as though the tourists had no idea that these are active houses of worship.

Holy Shit, are you more than 2? Even a 2 year old could understand that.

Do the tourists think that a cathedral means "fancy building?"

True. But also don't underestimate Trump's team especially his campaign manager who has been on the job since last summer running advanced voter targeting. If you ever get a chance to hear Parscarle talk about what he's up to take it. He's very smart.

All these rallies Trump does aren't just to rile up the crowd. They are talking names, registering voters and volunteers, etc.. By the time the Dem field is whittled down from the 30 or so people running to a candidate Trump will have been running for 2 years.

I like his chances. A lot.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Americans burned a record amount of energy in 2018, with a 10% jump in consumption from booming natural gas helping to lead the way, the U.S. Energy Information Administration says.

Overall consumption of all kinds of fuels rose 4% year on year, the largest such increase in eight years, a report this week from the agency said. Fossil fuels in all accounted for 80% of Americans' energy use.

That's despite increasingly urgent warnings from scientists that humans are running out of time to stave off the harshest effects of climate change by cutting greenhouse gas emissions from consuming coal, oil and natural gas.

What you did was get a collection of 5 or more people to "discuss" the subject and present the line in various forms. It creates the illusion of widespread acceptance of the narrative.

One thing to remembe about 2024 speculation: the state of total insanity in the media is real, yes, but it's also tactical. Donald Trump has no advantage, and has mortal folly, in letting everyone who plotted against him walk free. That guarantees his indictment when he leaves office. After 2020 he has to bleed the Democrats dry, assuming he doesn't (or hasn't) poached a large number of Sanders supporters.

The Morning Report - 4/19/19

badgag.jpg

Good morning kids. A blessed Good Friday and ziessen Pesach to one and all. The top story is of course the release of the redacted Mueller Report cum two-year deception as well as the reaction from all quarters. The Democrat-Left-Media complex is in total freakout mode as they a) refuse to believe this President is not guilty in any way, shape or form, b) are convinced that AG William Barr is covering up his guilt and c) thanks to Mueller and his pro-Clinton team's feckless and reckless punting on the obstruction angle, as well as verbiage that not only continues to unfairly smear the President's character but more horribly upends centuries of legal tradition by putting the onus on him to prove he's not a reprobate criminal as opposed to them proving beyond any reasonable doubt that he is. That is utterly inexcusable, but what did you expect from Robert Mueller? He was, is and always will be an agent of the Deep State Leftist cabal and as such, dragged this whole thing out for more than two years in the vain attempt to find something, anything, with which to destroy the Presidency of Donald Trump, either by removing him from office or essentially kneecapping his agenda.

The latter is what happened and for sure it affected the outcome of the midterm elections in the GOP losing the House. But circling back, the GOP-e at best was diffident or averse to Trump because it, too, is part and parcel of the anti-American globalist enterprise. I find it extremely hard to believe that turds like Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell did not know from the get-go that this entire collusion story was a complete crock. Hell, John McStains himself sent an aide to go fetch the fraudulent Steele dossier from the Brits and then was instrumental in disseminating it back here in DC. They knew. They all knew - Democrat and Republican alike. But still they persisted.

Back here in the real world, the President has been "exonerated." But I put that in quotes because that word implies that Robert Mueller and company were legitimate, impartial arbiters of justice who have nobly executed a fair and just process when the cold, hard truth is that this process was completely illegitimate from the start; they were put there to hang this President if they could, on whatever flimsy excuse they could find or manufacture. And even after ruining the lives of Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort they came up with nothing. Mueller turns my stomach as much as Clinton, Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, McCabe, Priestap, Steele, Halper, Mifsud, Strzok, Page, Ohr, Ohr, Rosenstein and all the other smug, elitist traitors who very nearly pulled off the overthrow of a President and really, by extension, the will of the American people in electing him. And before it gets lost in the sauce, none of this would have happened had Jeff Sessionszzzz not recused himself and then appointed Rosenpenis, who turned around and appointed Mueller with no specific boundaries and carte blanche to do anything he wanted. If there is any justice in this world, all of the aforementioned would be behind bars at Leavenworth for the rest of their lives, or have a date with the hangman for what they tried to do. And what is still going on now in the House of Representatives with such morally bankrupt frauds as Nadler and Schiff.

All things considered, you have to marvel at Donald Trump. The entirety of a feral, criminal bureaucracy and politicians along with a complicit mass propaganda machine was hurled at him non-stop for a period of nearly four years going back to the summer of 2015 when he announced his candidacy, and yet he not only survived, but he thrived. Part of it was because the base and now a growing number of people outside of that base see that he has either kept his word or has done everything within his power to advance the agenda despite the opposition, even from within his own camp. And even despite losing the House (or perhaps as a result of it), the Democrats are in an open internecine war that has exposed who they are and what they believe for all the world to see... and it's not pretty. More on that later.

So notwithstanding my rage against Mueller, semantics aside, the President has been exonerated, but the Dem-Media-Complex will now use Mueller's "insinuendos" on obstruction as well as the mythical crimes not mentioned in the report to advance to yet more persecutions and smearing of him, his allies and supporters among the American people. Bring it on. The more they attack the more Trump fights back twice as hard and the more support he garners. I don't have the links handy but there is polling indicating that a growing number of people across all age and demographic categories are in agreement that this entire thing was indeed a witch hunt to get Trump. And if the Left collectively continues to fuck the innards out of that chicken, 2020 is going to get ugly for them, no matter who they put up to run.

Then there's the media. Tucker Carlson calls their reaction the single most embarrassing thing to happen to the White House press corps in American history, Great One Mark Levin rightly says that their attacks on Trump are really attacks on the American people and R.S. McCain edits his erudition and examination of the embarrassment of American journalism to just three words - "Orange Man Bad!" Switch to any channel or grab any paper and you'll find plenty of cringe-worthy embarrassment to go around, but the icing on the cake has got to be Brian "Commander McBragg" Williams, who was all set to dispatch Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow.

Williams: "My first question, I'm afraid, is going to verge on plain English. Where did the attorney general get off with that characterization this morning, including four mentions that there was no collusion? What document was he reading, compared to the one we're left with?"

Sekulow: "Well, page two of the document says, 'The investigation did not establish that members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government in its election of interference activities.' So it's right from the document itself."

Earlier, Williams had the temerity to refer to the attorney general as "Bagdhad Bill Barr." This from a confirmed liar and fabulist. Brian, you're not a journalist despite being paid millions of dollars to portray one on television. I have some advice for you. Stop talking. Forever.

On to the rest of the news starting with Amnesty and Immigration, and as the migrant hordes continue to jump the border the administration is trying its best to stem the flow as well as the massive fraud being perpetrated in the name of asylum. A previously deported illegal is charged with raping and sex-trafficking a teenager, Rancida Tliban calls for hunger strikes to end ICE, and a two-part series on the health hazard coming across the border.

Dem Scandal Sheet: Two potential huge scandals involving a billion in dark money cash finding its way into Democrat coffers and the looming UkraineGate scandal that could hit the BIdens. In the Joo-Hate subsection, our Rancida feels more Palestinian in Congress than anywhere else (is that a Michael Kors suicide belt or are you happy to see me?), and an exposed Islamist politician responds to the charges.

Civil War 2.0: Seattle sick-o punches a priest when he spots his crucifix.

General Politics: Conrad Black rips into Bernardo Sandersnista, while Tom Styrene is itching to impeach Steny Hoyer is not so sure about that (he knows its a loser before 2020), the openly gay ambassador to Germany Richard Grennell rips Mayor Buttplug for his attacks on VP Pence, "Jello-Brain" Gillibrand hires actual former Soviet propagandists, "Blotto" Beto hates America so much, he wants to rule it, and a look at this electoral college sabotage in the states and how to deal with it.

First Amendment and Fake News Fakery: Aside from the psychotic reaction to the Mueller thing, the press did not appreciate Edelweiss being played at the news conference, Chicago press ignoring black crimes, and shockingly Time names Trump, Bolsonaro and Guaido to their top 100 list.

Guns: The judge who threw out the California magazine ban suddenly reverses himself after getting a talking to by Xavier Becerra. Disgusting.

Abortion: NC governor vetoes anti-infanticide bill.

Foreign Desk: IDF general warning about a Hezbollah invasion from the Galilee, Citgo court ruling could have repercussions for Venezuela, a look at the disaster of the Globalist mass migration plot and Notre Dame is latest of three great conflagrations and what it could mean going forward.

DEE-fense: US Intel community is 99.99% leftist (and see the Ledeen piece about the entirety of the CIA, FBI and DoJ as a nest of foreign spies [as if foreign foes need to infiltrate those places given our homegrown commies]).

We-All-Slam-For-I-Slam: Girl who complained about her madrassa teacher harassing her gets incinerated for her troubles. Paging Bro-Fo Omar to pick up the courtesy jerry can...

Domestic Affairs: Leftist DC housing policy turns out as well as you'd think, and metro areas are depopulating faster and faster. Gee, why is that do you think?

Crime and Punishment: USCG scores big drug haul off the Central and South American coasts and SCOTUS to decide on another violent felony law.

Healthcare: Senator Bill Cassidy as a better health plan (meh, I prefer free markets but let's see what he's got), and "Blotto" is a big fat hypocrite.

Education: Minneapolis public schools dish up the pro-Bro-Fo propaganda to the kiddies while bashing OrangeManBad, Austin schools infect young brains with the tranny psychosis, high school students do the Nuremberg Law 2 Electric Boogaloo, and Florida governor DeSantis with some good news in the sunshine state.

Red Greens: Hack sportswriter delves into nihilism and ludditism.

Hither and Yon: Christian Toto on new Christian movie Breakthrough, on the passing of noted man of G-d James V. Schall, and the Progressive scapegoating of a noted British contemporary scholar.

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

NOTE: The opinions expressed in some links may or may not reflect my own. I include them because of their relevance to the discussion of a particular issue.

Yup.
He's guilty because he's been accused.
He's guilty because the investigation was long.
He's guilty because he complained about it on twitter.
He's guilty because he keeps talking about the Mueller report.
He's guilty because he didn't provide Mueller "clear" evidence he did not do what he's accused of, despite there being no clear evidence he did it.
He's guilty because he's icky, so just find one gosh-d@mn crime to get rid of him!!

82 Tucker also points out that the first year is when a new president usually has momentum to accomplish the things on which he just won the presidency. But the massive war from DeepState against him (the coup, backed by GOPe) stopped all that. MAYBE he really would have started with a pen and phone to start building the wall, using the military.


But instead he was threatened with impeachment if he dared to act like a president. He got no honeymoon ... it was warfare from before he was elected. The DC Cabal was sure they had Hillary to sweep away all their sedition ... and they are still mostly winning (record illegal invasion).


No real reason to be cheering till we get some real indictments ... again, BigPromises that will happen. maybe ... #2weeks. Barr would have to be willing to take down his friend Mueller, or at least address some others. Border wall still on hold ... so we are still losing ground.

Posted by: Skip at April 19, 2019 06:02 AM (BbGew)

***
IMO there's only one obstruction claim of any note, and that's Trump's alleged order to McGahn to fire Mueller and Trump's later denial of issuing that order. Bottom line: Mueller wasn't fired and Trump had the power to do it, so it doesn't amount to anything except in liberal reporters' "but for" musings.

But also, Trump apparently and correctly thought Mueller should be removed because of his major conflicts of interest (which will probably come more in focus in the coming months) and THAT is what he talked to McGahn about (Trump said he wanted Rosenstein to handle it).

The end result might have been the same IF Mueller had been removed for conflicts (although he wasn't removed or fired), but being removed (or excused) for unresolvable conflicts is NOT the same thing as being fired. If McGahn misunderstood what Trump wanted, that is possible, but Trump's statement that he did not tell McGahn to fire Mueller seems truthful and reasonable and is not perjury or obstruction.

My niece and a cousin of mine took a 23 and Me test a while ago, separately. And just recently, someone tracked down my niece to email her and say, 'Hey, I think we may be related'.

They compared notes with her thinking he's just some distant cousin.

First cousins.

I have a sister I never knew about from when my dad was young and dumb and full of. . . You know the rest.

I got to met her yesterday. She happened to be on vacation near me so I drove 5 hours to meet her for lunch and hung out with her for the afternoon.

As scary as some of the applications of 23 and Me can be, this was a cool byproduct of what happened.

The report is a prosecutor laying out their case, which is the jaundiced view of someone aiming at getting a conviction. In this case, a conviction in the public eye, since no charges were actually brought.

There's no defense team cross examining the state's witnesses, no rebuttal witnesses, just Mueller's Holy Writ. And a large media cheering section.

195 I like this thinking!

So how about a state law making it unlawful to reveal the precise vote count sooner than 24 hours after the House of Representatives has counted the electoral votes and certified the winner?

The popular vote number would still be published for those curious to know it; it will just be published later, when the House has counted the electoral votes, declared a winner, and it is too late to be used for purposes of the NPVIC. For how can a "NPVIC state" "assign" its electoral votes to the winner of the popular vote if it does not know what the popular vote is?

Obviously, the more the merrier. But just a single state, the bigger, the better (Texas?), sealing its popular vote until the winner is certified could be enough to defeat the NPVIC and perhaps even make it pointless to continue to pursue the NPVIC at all.

Same thing for Corsi/Stone really. And they can go by "FBI notes" because recordings might not say what they want, as they tell any lie to try to confuse/entrap, whatever fly gets caught in their web of deceit and sedition.

Posted by: Hikaru at April 19, 2019 08:46 AM (t3nAe)"

This is hilarious! Hoyer, of course, represents the House Leadership, and they remember how the Impeachment fiasco actually helped Bill Clinton win reelection. They know not to go there - BUT their True Believers have been stoked up by money men like Soros and Steyer, and they have been told for 2 years that Impeachment is Coming! And so they are willing to rip their own party to shreds to get what they want.

I, and others, have been starting to forecast that this election is shaping up to be a replay of 1972, but now I see a lot of 1968 coming into play, too. Now of course '68 was the year of two awful assassinations, but beyond that the Dem party completely splintered over the Vietnam War and spent the entire year ripping itself to shreds. The southern Democrats walked out of the party for the first time, and in the end Victory was handed to a fairly unpopular (even at the time) Richard Nixon.

And interesting trivia, I recall that George Romney, Mitch Romney's father, was one of the big Democrat candidates that year.

Good morning everyone. No smart-assedenessism today, because Good Friday. I do pause occasionally to recall the pain Jesus was put through and ask for strength to face this life that's composed mostly of that pain.

Prayers up for all you Morons, Moronettes, and y'all's families for healing and strength.
And I'd ask everyone to pray for a guy who was in front of me at the pharmacy yesterday whose 6-year-old daughter has seizures and the doctors are having a hard time treating her. I don't know his name and had never seen him before, but when he was talking to the tech who was ringing up his prescription, you could hear the pain in his voice. I told him I'd pray for them.

May this be a Good Friday for everyone.

303 Actually it's easy - just pretend you're Josef
Stalin. If you accuse someone of a crime, and they say ANYTHING besides
"Oh thank you Commissar, please go through my entire life please rip up
my mattresses and check for Hidden Documents while I prostrate myself
on the floor before you!" - if you say ANYTHING besides that, then you
are automatically GUILTY of OBSTRUCTION.

From a clinical point of view, it's pretty amazing to watch people who apparently are devoid of feelings of shame go at it 24 hours a day over this.
Like at some point, if your Jim Acosta or any of these insane people, you naturally would have a limit where you stop yourself and say "whoa now, I'm running it off the rails here."
But no. They have no shame. Really amazing to me.

Still waiting for someone to explain, as Mr. Stone points out, how you can have obstruction of justice for a crime that wasn't committed. Posted by: AlaBAMA

Or how you can wiretap a presidential campaign because of a dastardly RUSSIA Super-Spy who barely gets questioned, let alone indicted.

Or how election-meddling by Russian Intelligence is the End of Democracy--but meddling by British and Australian Intelligence is great! And the Mother of All Election-Meddling by American Intelligence is the very definition of Good Government.

You've heard the saying "If voting mattered, they wouldn't let us do it." Well, it finally mattered in 2016, which is why they tried so hard to rig it.

Also be sure to turn on Notification from Defender. It will block some apps and keep them from working and won't always tell you about it. I don't recall exactly where it is because insufficient covfefe, but you have to allow blocked apps manually. On that page, it'll show you the apps it's blocked so you can let them run.

Also, I try to run apps as Administrator as much as possible.

376 367 The New York Yankees have decided to no longer run Kate Smiths version of God Bless America during their seventh-inning stretch because of Smiths affiliation with songs that carried racist lyrics.

Most famously, Smith sang a 1931 song, Thats Why Darkies Were Born, which opened: Someone had to pick the cotton, Someone had to pick the corn, Someone had to slave and be able to sing, Thats why darkies were born.


The song, which has been called a satirical take on racism, was a big hit for Smith, and also was recorded by Paul Robeson.

What a load of crap. Revisionist History. And by the by Paul Robeson is Black

Hell, I don't think Dems have the votes.

A bunch of freshmen Democrats come from purple districts where the constituents aren't enamored with the idea of dragging the federal government into impeachment proceedings. And, Nancy has far less control of her caucus than she used to. I don't think she can exert serious control over anyone anymore.

It would probably end up a 100-300 vote against impeachment.

==========

My take is based on a historical precedent.

"December 2017/January 2018 House votes
On December 6, a second privileged resolution on articles of impeachment, H.Res. 646, was brought on the floor by Representative Al Green, Democrat of Texas. The resolution listed two articles, i.e. proposed reasons for impeachment: "Associating the Presidency with White Nationalism, Neo-Nazism and Hatred" and "Inciting Hatred and Hostility."[64] House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Republican of California, moved for the resolution to be defeated ("tabled"), which was agreed to by a 364-58 vote with four members voting present.[9]

Among Republicans, 238 voted to table the articles of impeachment and one did not vote. Among Democrats, 126 voted to table the articles of impeachment, 58 voted against tabling the articles of impeachment, four voted "present" and five did not vote.[65]

Green's effort did not receive the support of Democratic leadership. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Minority Whip Steny Hoyer issued a statement saying that "[l]egitimate questions have been raised about [Trump's] fitness to lead this nation," but that "[n]ow is not the time to consider articles of impeachment" given ongoing investigations by congressional committees as well as the investigation by the special counsel.[9]

On January 19, 2018, Green brought up the resolution a second time. On this attempt his motion was defeated by a vote of 355-66. 234 Republicans and 121 Democrats voted against the motion. All the votes for the motion were from Democrats: three Democrats voted present and three Republicans and three Democrats did not cast a vote.[66][67]"

That happened before Mueller blew up. Now that Mueller blew up, you think the appetite for impeachment has grown?

403 Bill Cassidy Designing Republican Federalist Healthcare Plan

********

Color me underwhelmed.

1. His proposal builds on the "success of CHIP" as a model for the larger system. CHIP is essentially an extension of Medicaid. The only metric that the article touts as "the success" of CHIP is that numbers of uninsured children have decreased since CHIP was iniated. The main driver in that number was the O-care related expansion of Medicaid. CHIP reimbursement rates are pretty similar to Medicaid, which historically pays about 30 cents on the dollar compared to private insurance.

2. He touts the use of federal money allocated as block grants to the states. So instead of a national single payer system the states can devise 50 different single payer systems. It's still federal (taxpayer) money, so there will definitely be strings attached. And the individual state systems will carry all of the baggage of single payer programs.

Absolutely. Firstly - Mueller hasn't "blown up" in their eyes. He just didn't get the job done, and the only mystery is will he be framed as the guy that dropped the ball or the guy that fought the good fight and got screwed.

Don't look at this as a Republican, where problems have solutions and events play out to a conclusion. This shit isn't settled. It'll never be settled. Nothing is ever settled short of a Democrat victory. Mueller was just another play in a long game.

Democrats willingly walked the plank to push ObamaCare over the finish line. They'll walk the plank, if necessary, to shit-can Trump. And this time, when the chips are down, Republicans will join ... in just the minimal margin to pass things along ... if necessary.

Posted by: The Ugly American at April 19, 2019 09:49 AM (tqAJc)

============

I think you have a vast misreading of what's actually going on in the Democratic Party right now.

Establishment Democrats really don't want impeachment on the table, which is what they've been saying since they took power in January. The activist left really wants it, and will scream and holler about it till Kingdom Come.

You're ignoring the first, while hyping up the second. Pelosi keeps putting down AOC in public, and it's not because she's in lock step with the bartender. It's because Pelosi's not going to pursue the strategies that AOC is outlining. All of leadership is trying to toe a line between "We're not doing anything they want" and "We appreciate their identity politics check boxes".

The activist left is now as eager to impeach as ever. That's pretty obviously true, but the establishment Democrats who actually represent the majority of the caucus in the House? They are actually less enthused about the idea. Mueller was supposed to give them cover.

Yes, they'll subpoena everything in sight, but the establishment understands how impeachment actually works. You don't start it unless a majority of the country as a whole is positively chomping at the bit for the president's removal. They know it will fail, and when it fails the president that makes it through is as likely to be stronger than weaker.

They want the donation dollars, but not the actual effort. It's not just our establishment that's good at failure theater, you know.

I occasionally go to Mariners games in Seattle, and the crowd lustily singing "God Bless America" at the seventh inning stretch (in Seattle!) doubtless drives the SJW's nuts.

I'm sure they won't stop until the crowd sullenly stays silent as the organ plays "This Land is Your Land".

463 Smith was a famous singer before and during WWII who recorded the offensive jingle, "Pickaninny Heaven," which she directed at "colored children" who should fantasize about an amazing place with "great big watermelons," among other treats. She shot a video for that song that takes place in an orphanage for black children, and much of the imagery is startlingly racist. She also recorded "That's Why Darkies Were Born," which included the lyrics "Someone had to pick the cotton . . . That's why darkies were born."

It was a concentrated fight in one committee in the Senate. The chance for victory was around flipping a single Republican in the committee, and then 2-3 Republicans in the whole chamber. It was actually doable to kill the nomination.

512 Regarding the New Mexico Militia capturing illegals- what did they think was going to happen when government doesn't act? Our country and communities are being overrun because they refuse to address the crisis. In a political move, the Democrat Governor of N.M., Grisham, pulled the National Guard from one of the most dangerous border areas, to "protest President Trump". That's left thousands of people vulnerable to this invasion.

It's about time these politicians understood the people own this government, not them. It is not theirs to do with what they want against law, Constitution and the good of the people.

As government fails to act and then uses its power as a political weapon, expect to see more of this, and worse. Democrats own it, and they shouldn't be surprised that when they use that power for tyranny, people are not going to sit around and watch.

And Impeachment is not something you only get to try once. If they try
it before the Election, and Trump wins in 2020 as well as wins the
Senate removal vote ... they'll just wait for the right circumstances to
try it again. While making up some other investigation to hamstring him
while he's in office.

It's obvious that the phenomenon is real, but I do wonder about the actual impact levels.

As NY bleeds voters, it's not becoming more moderate, but more progressive. That tells me that it's not progressives leaving NY, but the more moderate voters. I guess they do largely vote Democratic, but it's not 100%, I don't think. I think it's cultural Democrats who vote Democratic because granddaddy did in the 30s and ever since. They're not lost causes, but potential opportunities.

Still, there's no denying that CO went blue because of outflow from CA.

They don't care about that; they just want to maintain their spots at the feeding trough. Trump, by being an outsider to the ruling class, is an existential threat that hasn't existed since the citizens were brainwashed during Saint Delano's reign that regular people weren't qualified to lead the country.

The process of meting out accountability has begun.

Horowitz, my sources tell me, has interviewed between 50 and 100 witnesses in his exhaustive probe. Graham and his predecessor as Judiciary chairman, Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), laid out the most important investigative issues they saw in a letter last year. This month, former House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Calif.) sent a letter to DOJ identifying eight potential criminal referrals. His committee last year also released a memo on abuses of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that may have occurred during the Russia probe.
And President Trump reportedly is readying an order to declassify five key buckets of documents on alleged FBI abuses.

My sources agree these 10 questions are the most important to be answered in the forthcoming probes.

It takes 5 hours to drive from Atlanta to Dublin, GA in the wee hours of the morning. And that's if you speed 5 mph over the limit. From Atlanta to Savannah will take a lot longer.

And Charlize Theron was just like any other mom as she embraced her eldest child, Jackson, on Wednesday, in Los Angeles. The star -- who adopted Jackson as a baby and introduced the child as her son -- explained that Jackson is every bit as much a girl as her three-year-old sister, August.

"She looked at me when she was three years old and said: 'I am not a boy!', said the star, when asked. She continued: "So there you go! I have two beautiful daughters who, just like any parent, I want to protect and I want to see thrive. They were born who they are and exactly where in the world both of them get to find themselves as they grow up, and who they want to be, is not for me to decide. . ."


Well, you kinda DID decide when you chose to take a 3 year old's assertion as a serious, permanent decision on his sex.

The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

Every decent man is ashamed of the government he lives under. H.L. Mencken


Quote II

“We had clear lines between ‘this is alive’ and ‘this is dead,’” “How do we now think about this middle category of ‘partly alive’? We didn’t think it could exist.” Nita A. Farahany, a bioethicist and law professor at Duke University


Quote III

"Like similar state and local laws that have been used to prosecute cake artist Jack Phillips and florist Barronelle Stutzman, this federal law would force Americans to participate in events and speak messages that violate their core beliefs. Tolerance and respect for good-faith differences of opinion are essential in a diverse society like ours." Greg Baylor, Director of the Center for Religious Schools

This is a rerun from last night. Someone goofed up last night. We won't mention any names will we Mis. Hum.?

As us 29 year olds approach Medicare and Social Security eligibility, we must pay attention to the little details.

Long-time readers may recall our series of interviews with attorney Kent Brown about his lawsuit against the Fed's "because Social Security officials claim that folks must forfeit their Social Security benefits if they withdraw from (or choose not to enroll in) Medicare."

[ed: Original and follow-up posts are here and here]

One would think that since neither of these are in any way legislatively connected, this would be a non-issue.

One would think that, but one would be incorrect:

"Is there something in the original Medicare legislation that dictated this? Surprisingly, the answer is no ... Nothing in the Social Security or Medicare statutes state that one must take Medicare in order to receive Social Security payments (or vice versa)"

So how did this come about?

Two words: Washington, DC.

So the little Canadian pussy needs our help? Trudeau wants to crack down on immigrants.

There’s no wall or checkpoint or regular guard at the end of Roxham Road, just a footpath to the border. In recent years, this trail has been the busiest unauthorized crossing into Canada, a well-known back door for tens of thousands of people seeking asylum in a country that projects itself as a haven for refugees.

Canada has largely tolerated their arrival. But with an increasingly close election on the horizon, the Liberal government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - a global figure of welcome for refugees - is signaling plans to crack down. And they're asking the United States to help.

Just about everybody enjoys a spectacular photo. And today's narcissists want to be in that photo. And in the meantime are caught up in a destructive behavior.

A recent report found that 259 people died between 2011 and 2017 while stepping in front of the camera in often dangerous destinations. Our writer went deep on the psychology of selfies to figure out what's behind our obsession with capturing extreme risk-taking.

It began as retribution for a lost bet: in 2014, Gigi Wu, an experienced hiker from Taiwan, posed atop a snow-covered mountain, clad only in a bikini. The stunt resulted in a series of undeniably gorgeous photos. So Wu, a model and adventure sports personality, kept at it for the next four years, photographing herself on the summits of more than 100 of Asia’s most impressive peaks, always in a bikini. The images are at once absurd and beautiful, a juxtaposition Wu told Taiwan TV that she adored.

If I were young, adventurous and not allergic to hay I would move here.

FOR OVER A YEAR, THE Channel Islands community of Sark has been importing their milk from elsewhere. According to the BBC, the community is currently looking for someone to put an end to this nonsense and bring dairy production—and a herd of cows—back to the island.

Sark is three miles long and a mile-and-a-half wide, free of cars and streetlights. Around 500 people live on the island, surrounded by a rocky cliff-lined coast accessible by ferry and boat, under a sky dark enough for the stars to twinkle at night. Sark’s last dairy farmer, Christopher Nightingale, shut his operation down in 2017 due to rising costs and a lack of land stability: The island is still led by a seigneur, or feudal lord (currently, Christopher Beaumont). While feudalism formally ended on the island in 2008, old habits die hard. Farmers on Sark must still lease their land on a short-term basis, which makes it difficult to plan a sustainable business.

Vaxxers vs. Anti-Vaxxers

Five unnamed mothers in New York City filed a lawsuit Monday, April 15, seeking to block the city's mandatory vaccination order in areas hit by a massive measles outbreak that has raged since last October.

City health officials announced the order earlier this month as they declared a public health emergency over the outbreak, which has sickened 329 people so far—mostly children. According to the city's order, all unvaccinated people in affected ZIP codes must receive the Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR) vaccine, prove immunity, or have a valid medical exemption. Violators could face a fine of $1,000.

As ever, The ONT is always looking out for you. Why you shouldn't mix booze and pot.

“Beer before liquor, never been sicker”—by now (and probably from personal experience) we all know this rule to be true. But when it comes to alcohol and weed, where’s our helpful rhyme?

As Vice writes, every person copes with alcohol and cannabis differently, so while you may be fine mixing both substances, your friend may be tripping balls in the very same room. While the subject of cannabis and alcohol’s combined effect is largely under-researched, there are a few things worth knowing before diving under the influence.

No mention how much this virtue signaling is going to cost you.

Adidas has introduced a new sneaker that it’s calling the first of its kind. Named the Futurecraft.Loop, it’s a performance running shoe that can be 100% ground up and melted back into raw materials for a brand-new shoe—without any waste.

The sneaker is part of Adidas’s attempt to address the grave environmental threat posed by plastic, which increasingly clogs landfills and suffuses our oceans. At a presentation in New York today to reveal the shoe, Eric Liedtke, an executive board member in charge of global brands at Adidas, noted that every piece of plastic ever made is still around. “We need to innovate our way out of this mess,” he said.

Her comments came during a fundraiser in Detroit last weekend for the Michigan Coalition for Human Rights, the Free Beacon reported. She said Congress is unwilling to abolish ICE.

Feel Good Story of The Day and Genius Award Winner all wrapped up in one story.

Moments later the mostly naked man left the scene of his attempted burglary bleeding, embarrassed, still pretty much naked. 5’6, 300-pound Antonio Mosely had charged the old woman without realizing that she was holding a metal baseball bat, or knowing that she was a pretty good softball player in her day. But oh did Clarese Gainey know how to handle that bat. She swung, connected, and drove off the offensive lineman-sized attacker.

Who needs sweet talk & negligees? Not our Genius Award Winners.

An Arizona couple is charged with luring a day laborer to their Phoenix home and forcing the man to have sex at gunpoint with the female suspect, an assault that the male suspect described as a “sexual fantasy scenario,” according to a criminal complaint.

According to investigators, the victim was picked up last Monday outside a Home Depot by Brenda Acuna-Aguero, 39, who said that she needed help moving items at her home.

The victim told cops that when he reached the residence, Acuna-Aguero “began to talk sexual to him” and said it “was her fantasy to have sex with a laborer and that she wanted to have sex with him.”

When the man declined to have sex, Acuna-Aguero’s husband Jorge Murrieta-Valenzuela, 45, entered the room carrying a rifle. Murrieta-Valenzuela, cops charge, placed the firearm against the victim’s chest and told him “that he was going to have sex with his wife or he would shoot him.”

27 You know, there's something that's been bothering me for a while. In every election cycle, Dead and Fictional voters break heavily for the Democrats--in many cases, almost 100% in some districts. Why doesn't the GOP reach out to these voters? They don't even make a token effort. It's no wonder these constituencies vote the way they do--the Democrats fete them heavily and the GOP ignores them. They probably don't feel they have any other place to go.

48 I had my still new dog at a kennel for a bit because I was going to be away from home for 14 hours on Alberta election day. My choice was to leave her at the shelter she came from.
When I went to pick her up today I was a little worried she would have forgotten me after a couple of days with her old family and doggie friends.
I'm happy to say she was excited to see me again.

123 "We had clear lines between 'this is alive' and 'this is dead,'"

No, we didn't. In fact, the determination of death is a state issue. It used to be that the states each had their own definition of death and you could be dead in one state and transported to another in which you would not be dead - and vice versa, obviously.

Outside of someone having been "dead" for a good long time and starting to decompose, there was never any clear-cut line that determined "dead".

Shit, with the defibrillator we bring people "back to life" who would have been written off as "dead" for most of history. The changing of the delineation of "dead" is nothing new.

"How do we now think about this middle category of 'partly alive'? We didn't think it could exist."

Nita A. Farahany, a bioethicist and law professor at Duke University


Bullshit.

A bioethicist AND a law professor. LOL. This chick is retarded. She's just trying to make her phony-baloney job sound important.

The fact is that ancient peoples, being all backward and such, with their concept of the soul and life after death have always considered the continuation of some sort of consciousness after the body dies. And this retarded law chick acts as if she's the first to ever come up with the idea of life after death, or some variant thereof.

136 The sneaker is part of Adidas's attempt to address the grave environmental threat posed by plastic, which increasingly clogs landfills and suffuses our oceans. At a presentation in New York today to reveal the shoe, Eric Liedtke, an executive board member in charge of global brands at Adidas, noted that every piece of plastic ever made is still around. "We need to innovate our way out of this mess," he said.

Fucker is lying his face off. Every piece of plastic ever made is not still around. A huge amount gets degraded by the UV in sunlight, or even eaten by bacteria. Since plastic is embodied petroleum (and/or natural gas), the smart thing to do is to burn waste plastic in a generating plant to make electrical energy.

140 Sark- A Limerick by Surfperch

A man want cheese for his noodles,
But lived on an island with less cows than poodles,
It was no walk in the park,
To get cows to Sark,
In the end all his efforts were feudal.

I had no idea there were so many choices that must be made when selecting hats/boots. Material, style, color, toe/brim, crease, heel, fancy or working and on and on.

Fell in love with a gray felt, 10X, cattleman's crease fancy hat. Somewhere in the neighborhood of $600-800. Whoa!

195 >>If you and your children have been vaccinated why are you so worried about someone who hasn't?
If you've been vaccinated for measles then you can't catch it from someone who hasn't,,, right?


It's a little more complicated than this, but you are correct in that most of the cases of measles are unvaccinated people.

But babies before vaccination are susceptible. They delay vaccinations for safety and effectiveness reasons so there is always a window where they will be.

And some people (very few) are immunocompromised and either can not be vaccinated, or are susceptible even though they are.

Third, vaccines are not 100% and some people can still get the disease after vaccination. Especially as you get older and this is a particular problem with measles since it is dangerous for pregnant women.

So there is an advantage to vaccinating as many as possible. It is especially irksome that once you reach a high enough level, the few people who are not vaccinated are taking advantage of other people being vaccinated to prevent their catching diseases. If no one got measles vaccine, then *everyone* would catch the measles eventually. So these people are free riding and putting babies, sick, and potentially mothers at risk.

Not quite.

Info posted by the National Vaccine Information Center:

Currently the CDC states that vaccine-induced immunity "appears to be long-term and probably lifelong in most persons" however, studies have shown that vaccine failure due to waning immunity can occur. In 2015, infectious disease experts reported that approximately 1 in 10 measles vaccinated individuals may be at risk of measles due to vaccine waning. In 2011, news reports from India publicly stated that only 1 child in 5 vaccinated for measles was actually protected from getting the disease, even after being fully vaccinated. Measles vaccine acquired immunity is reported to wane in at least 5 percent of cases, within 10 to 15 years after vaccination.

Probably going to Indiana to spend the weekend with his Mom.

Moron meetups are pretty great, overall.

I've met hogmartin, who is a very funny and good guy in person. We sat next to each other at "Polonia's" in Hamtrammk last winter, and had a blast, with Shibumi on my other side.
Eris, who is very charming, funny and nice (don't let that get out!)
Jinx the cat, who is also a very nice guy, who came to an earlier MiMoMe.
AltonJackson, outside the wire from Ann Arbor, who is also a really great guy
NaughtyPine, was also at Polonia's, really nice lady. And funny. Haven't seen her around much lately.

And of course, my darling Shibumi, who is now my wife, who I met through AoS. Eris called her "a force of nature", which I am not sure if that is good or bad. (?)

So, there you go!

272
The thing about vaccinations is a concept known as herd immunity. It boils down thus: There is a quantity known as the reproduction number, R, which is basically a measure of the average number of people one infected individual will infect.

If that number is greater than 1, then the initial phase of the disease will be exponential. The number of people infected will increase exponentially. Of course, the population is finite and that will peter out and peak, but the initial phase is exponential.

Now, if you can drive R below 1, then there is no exponential growth phase, and the disease dies out.

Vaccination lowers R, and the goal is to vacinate enough people to drive it below 1. This fraction depends on the disease, how virulent it is and all that.

Measles is very contagious and that fraction has to be pretty high, upper 80% or something.

When you have herd immunity, a disease will not spread. Of any population there are those who can't be vaccinated. They may be allergic to the vaccine, or have other conditions that prevent it.

WHen you have herd immunity, you protect those people.

What is happening is Amazon is skimming the creme. They take the high profit regions and deliveries. This puts a burden on UPS since they have to offer similar rates to businesses and can not tweak things in real time since the customers would not be able to predict shipping costs. for usps it is even worse.

Amazon also does not have to pay for 100% reliability. If a delivery guy flakes out they just send the shit to ups. UPS has to have backup and contingencies and full coverage no matter who delivers what, or when. Amazon can look at a region and decide to send their car to one spot or the next but only if it is cheaper than the alternatives.

295 Mis. Hum., my friend, this winter was really really tough to deliver through. I'm in the west central portion of Illinois, and we had snow and ice that deviled my little truck to death! I paid almost $500 out of pocket for tow trucks getting myself out of ditches.

296 lol, we had some dumbass amazon driver try to blackmail us into tipping him more than the overly generous gratuity Mrs. YankeeFifth had given him. Told us he would not bring the order the entire way to our door unless we gave him more.

told him to leave it and we would give amazon a ring.

he did leave the order undelivered.

guessing it did not do much for his amazon service career.

equally possible, long term cost wise this is your best option.

Well, consider this. Retirement pay is based on the last few years of income. So Amazon comes along and the senior staff work the Amazon Sunday shift and other O/T since the package load is high enough....

Then Amazon pulls out, the flood of money coming in goes away and the Sunday workers retire with the fatter pension that remains for decades.

309 Amazon's customer service is actually pretty decent. I think I have told this story, but during last winter shut down, I figured I would buy a new TV. So I ordered a 52' or 54' Sony on amazon. Delivered on time. Got it unwrapped.

Screen was cracked.

Called amazon. They shipped out a new one and arranged for pick up of the old one.

New one delivered. Cracked again.

This time I called amazon and said 'I am pretty much done here. Just give me the refund and pick up this piece of crap and I am good.

The lady on the line said, let me see what I can do. She gave me a free upgrade to a 64', which tripped the amazon service which makes home installation mandatory (which means it is picked up and delivered by an actual service, not UPS.) It was like a $500 upgrade for free. I was skeptical, but said, why not.

Delivered by a couple guys, they set it up. Worked fine. Happy.

An up-and-coming left-wing Latino in the Oregon legislature was accused of keeping a written list ranking the local female lobbyists by attractiveness. (Many political lobbyists tend to be attractive young females, for some reason.)

Being Oregon, this turned into a Major Scandal, and a full investigation was launched into whether this heinous charge was true. Apparently the alleged offense was writing down what any heterosexual male does automatically when meeting attractive young females.

It was pretty funny. I'd have more sympathy for the guy, but given his political views, eff him.

Amazon has a bad rep for their labor practices. We have heard stories here on the HQ in the past.

A friend in Alberta works for a big North American company whose name you will know. He was called upon to service a piece of their rental equipment in Calgary. Had to get a pass to enter their warehouse, and yet another to enter the back lot. Had to get the Amazon electrician to throw the breaker to turn off power to the equipment. Before doing that, the electrician had to don a flame-resistant vest, hard hat, and high-voltage gloves. To throw a switch on an enclosed panel. The electrician told my buddy, "I have resumes out."

328 I have been with Prime almost since its beginning and have never had anything but good results. I buy stuff all the time -- got five deliveries just today -- and whenever there is a problem they take care of it. I have even bought a 100 lb. generator with free two day delivery, and when it crapped out they sent me a full refund and just told me to dump the busted one since it couldn't be shipped back after being filled with gas. I live in a small town where we have no real choices for local purchases, and Amazon Prime is a blessing.

332 Amazon would never jeopardize the usps. They will continue to put price pressure on them though. Amazon needs an alternative in case anyone gets serious about "charging the real cost of delivery" since that cost includes lots of legacy and unions and trucks sitting in the edge of town tavern for 3 hr. lunches every day.

So amazon does not want to pay for the inefficiencies and they don't have to as long as they have options. But they really don't want to take over all their own deliveries since that would lead to their own inefficiencies, unions, and eventually legacy pensions and shit.

The 2017 1040 AGI matched the AGI I gave them, as I expected, so I went to log in to the IRS website to pull their numbers, and my ID info was rejected from their website, as well, for not matching the IRS database.

It was a union shop, and she had no idea about what that meant. She needed to move her typewrite to another table/desk for some reason, so she unplugged it and started to pick it up and move it.

Her boss blew a gasket and threw a shit fit, screaming put that typewriter back! They had to get an electrician to unplug it, then someone from maintenance to move it, then call the electrician back in to plug it back in.

We use Prime, but it doesn't always deliver. Too many times you order something up and hit checkout, it tells me they don't ship to Alaska. As if a flat rate box isn't delivered here just like anywhere. As if we don't have DHL or FedEx or UPS. As if we aren't really Americans at all.

It's bullshit, but they say it and that's that.

We actually have a small army of expediters in Seattle who will collect your purchases and put them on the TOTE Barge. Works for furniture, too. Hilarious.

If they can ship it, so could Prime.

More like downloading apps and some require a subscriber acct to unlock content. Like I have a Roku and also one built into another TV and we use DirecTV Now for "cable". Then I can use that login for content on other specialized tv and sports channels etc. You can also download and subscribe directly to your Netflix etc. I use mine mostly for my NHL tv and MLB tv subscriptions.

No doubt you are correct that it is a bad disease. The effectiveness of national vaccination programs is evidenced by the fact that in 30+ years in Pediatric related practice I never once had first-hand experience of a measles case. I vaguely remember seeing a case during medical school.

The New York Daily News reported Thursday there are conflicting claims about Smith's 1939 song "That's Why Darkies Were Born." The song originated in the 1931 Broadway revue "George White's Scandals," and was considered satire. It was recorded by Smith and also by Paul Robeson, who was black.

450 My dad had a job in high school working as an usher in a movie theatre in San Francisco. They had to wear suits with bow ties. These were 16 year old boys and these were not clip-on bow ties. There was one boy who know how to tie a bow tie. Thing was, his dad was a mortician. So, the other boys would come to him and say "Can you tie this for me?" And he would reply "OK lie down."

Ahh, I get it. For e-filing I presume. This is why I pay someone to do my taxes.

Of course, this year our filing got rejected because our son, who filed before us, forgot to check the "someone else can claim me as a dependent" box on his return. So we (our tax guy, that is) filed for an extension, and we have to re-file after our son's 1040X is processed.

464 Well, I did some more digging on my septic tank today. Lovely day to be in a hole in the ground, with the Sun shining down bright. I uncovered the inlet to the tank. The end of the tank, at its top, cones down into a six-inch nipple, and the 4-inch sewer line is coupled to that via a rubber 6" to 4" reducer and two hose clamps. Nary a sign of a leak there. The earth, although slightly damp, smells like damp earth, not sewage.

I think I will transfer digging activity to the house end of the line, about nine feet west of my current pit.

I am just trying to locate a leak. If the inlet side of the 2-compartment tank gets too full, it leaks out somewhere, and the leagake water winds up in the gravel under my basement, and the sump pump kicks in and pumps it back into the septic tank. My initial assumption was that it was the tank itself leaking, and the leakage water was percolating back to the house through the gravel bed of the trench holding the drain pipe. Best guess now is that this is not the case. Guess #2 is that the sewer line is leaking at a coupling where it exits the foundation, and when the inlet side of the tank is full, it keeps standing water in the sewer line, causing it to leak.

Any luck, a 2X2X2 foot hole should expose that end of the line.

506 *Orlando house update*

Twenty yard dumpster out in the driveway is now 1/3 full.

The house is now ready for the Estate Sale mavens, who will in due course, generate enough additional refuse to bring said container up to at least the 2/3 full level.

In short, my initial plan to contract for a 10 yard dumpster would have proven to been, ... insufficient.

The huge point being though, that every scrap of paper in the house has been reviewed, most of it fed through a high-capacity shredder, the important documents saved and all of the other scraps and detritus of a pair of long and well lived lives, have been processed and dealt with as per their value in this present world.

The house remains stuffed with furnishings, décor, tools (I have duplicates, or better), obsolete electronics, and many other items of significant value.

The Estate Sale mavens are going to encounter one of their most profitable sales, ever. I know of whence I speak, here.

There is far more meat remaining on the bones, then there are mere bones, and that's saying something.

And after?

Sale of the house.

Any Florida Horde will really want in on this one, and ought contact me through the addy in my nic.

We're talking "above prime" in every description of location, and I'm understating that in every deliberate way.

NEW YORK (AP) - The Yankees have suspended the use of Kate Smith's recording of "God Bless America" during the seventh-inning stretch while they investigate an allegation of racism against the singer.

The New York Daily News reported Thursday there are conflicting claims about Smith's 1939 song "That's Why Darkies Were Born." The song originated in the 1931 Broadway revue "George White's Scandals," and was considered satire. It was recorded by Smith and also by Paul Robeson, who was black.

579 I am not saying you are wrong, IGP, but the thing is that while a system may be very good, the individuals inhabiting it (aside from GW) may not be. Even during Menken's time there were crooks, liars and knaves that could make one ashamed of his leadership. The best systems minimize their impact rather than trying to eliminate them (although it would be nice if we could actually imprison the out and out crooks.)

But, by comparison's sake, Menken did not have a lot to stand on. For that matter, neither do we. What government in the world is less dysfunctional or free than ours is, tarnished and hedged though those freedoms may be?

It certainly appears that way now, but we don't know what events are coming. It does seem that leadership in many areas is incredibly ignorant and self righteous. However there does seem to be a small strong contingent of good thinkers who are watching things play out and will be willing to act when appropriate.

Or I may be overly optimistic.

Posted by: AmericanKestrel at April 19, 2019 12:58 AM (IDhUW)

597 Aetius, good (sad) point. My swipe at the USMC illustrates your point - although it's not that the Corps has degraded like so many other institutions, but that it's so lost its perspective that minor contributions to actually urgent and concrete national security efforts, like border physical security, are even viewed in the light of "readiness". "Readiness" for what, exactly? Commandant hasn't been reading his regular intel updates. Regardless - the idea that the trivial border effort would affect readiness is idiotic, and even more important reveals a mindset detached from any common sense understanding of national security.


MisHum, that's the big question, I guess. There's reason to think the generational dumbing down and warping of young minds hasn't paid off exactly as hoped for the enemy, but the damage has been serious.

604 AKestrel, don't know if you're optimistic, but not sure who you're talking about ("small strong contingent of good thinkers").


And I'd say cowardice and irresponsibility are more of an issue than ignorance. For example I don't think any senior management of any real energy company has the slightest doubt that all AGW and most other "environmental" crap is just that - but instead of saying so they waste shareholder $ on idiotic Potemkin "green" nonsense (and put the idiocy in their ads, to appeal to a presumably dumbed-down public). And attempt to get in on the stupid rent-seeking $ to invent anti-gravity machines. No integrity. At all.

615 Never held/shot a PPK, but a guy at the range today said it was awful to shoot. Bad ergonomics, trigger pull, etc. (could just be his taste/quirks, dunno). I let him empty a mag of my CZ-83 (also .380). Like me, he thought it was the best, most natural fit of any handgun he'd ever held.


Shot a Mosin in an Archangel stock for the first time. Nice. But apart from the external 10-round magazine-fed thing (instead of internal 5-round mag), not any great advantage over the original Arctic birch stock, to me. But I'm a very low-end historical sort, only interested in loading fast with stripper clips and achieving minute-of-human-torso @ 150 yds from realistic shooting positions (all for kicks, zero chance of the actual situation ever happening).

I was always jealous of it because it was so fun and easy to shoot. And powerful.

620 Maybe an even more burning question is why this administration didn't move on January 21, 2017 to pursue/punish/end ID fraud in the form of SSNs, and illegals getting the EITC, via administrative action. And if they lacked that power under the law, why it didn't immediately demand legislation from (the then-"GOP-controlled") Congress allowing this (and if it didn't get such legislation, why it didn't engage in the lost and mysterious art of "politics" and put pressure on Congress to act, including esp. GOP members).


Oh well.

621 Y5 if you're serious about the CZ-83, AIM Surplus has them right now for $320 (used, usually in good shape, functionally fine). Mags are a bit pricey (high $30s). But an excellent platform for that caliber. Tragically I have not handled or shot most .380s or any other caliber category for that matter, but as stated the -83 is the most naturally pointable easily aimed gun I've ever shot. Can shoot it unsupported (one-handed), especially after the initial double-action shot, easily.

623 And I'd say cowardice and irresponsibility are more of an issue than ignorance. For example I don't think any senior management of any real energy company has the slightest doubt that all AGW and most other "environmental" crap is just that - but instead of saying so they waste shareholder $ on idiotic Potemkin "green" nonsense (and put the idiocy in their ads, to appeal to a presumably dumbed-down public). And attempt to get in on the stupid rent-seeking $ to invent anti-gravity machines. No integrity. At all.
-------
I don't doubt this.

I see small pockets of 25-30 year olds who are not financially stable, who for the most part went thru the public education system and who are now realizing that they have been brainwashed/ manipulated and are slowly, quietly trying to figure out how to change mind sets. They know the "greenies" running the companies are idiots.

I also see rebellious teenagers who speak their minds logically, reasonably, who are being shut down by the education system and who resent it and I think will fight the irrationality when the are no longer legally controlled by the system.

They know "pepe" , pewdipie, and the right leaning memes and are being chastised for it. I don't think they will give into the SJW pressure and will only learn how to fight better.

625 Executed serial killer Aileen 'Monster' Wuornos was a groupie for Foghat way back in the early seventies and claimed in correspondence with a childhood friend while on death row that singer Lonesome Dave Peverett had a teeny tiny dick.

Which was probably why he was lonesome. At least he might have given her a slow ride.

626 Somebody sent me the key excerpt from Williamson's barf on the Mueller abomination. He seems somewhat stupid. If he really "thinks" what he writes. Some ignorant sophomoric crap about "smoke" and "fire", ignoring all relevant facts (all of which were known before and outside the SC activity).


Speaking of the day's big news, if Barr thinks he's going to restore some integrity to DOJ, the calamitous internal scandal - the appointment of an SC contrary to regs - needs to be confronted.


Was happily away from the web all day, amidst lots of wonderful gunfire (all directed at steel and paper), including by some Coast Guard guys who really had too much fun, so didn't see - did ANYONE even raise the topic that the SC appointment in itself is a scandal? The publicly known scope obviously fails to comply with relevant regs - Barr has to release the 2nd scope, or he really hasn't lifted the cloud over DOJ even a little bit.

628 AKestrel, all true, and representative I think, not just your narrow data slice. Guess we'll see.


But I wouldn't call the corporate idiots SJWs. Outside tech and a few exceptional cases, where they are freakish bigots like AAPL's Cook, it's normal people who are irresponsibly playing along with fringe bigotry and the latest teen craze, or actively trying to game/rent-seek (real companies pursuing idiotic "green" make-believe technologies, Solyndra-type outright grand larceny operations, etc).

I hope you're right. In a free and affluent society like ours, young kids are supposed to rebel and put forward ideas different from the oldsters like us. But it's not happening, so far.

Millennials lined up behind ideas my dad outgrew before I was born. What kind of young badass says "Man, I really want a defined-benefit health plan guaranteed by the government?"

Why in holy hell are young people listening to cable news? I wouldn't be caught dead doing it as a teenager.

At that age, you're supposed to be fucking around. Not caring at all about whatever dork is President at the time.

This is what happens when everything is infused with politics, and I mean everything. From social jussie-tice wanker math problems to the hagiographic portrayal of Bathhouse Barry, including those sing-a-longs of praise like they do in North Korea. Honestly, kids today can't get away from politics, be it from woke teachers to woke preachers. I never bothered with politics until I was in high school, and barely at that. In college, I was taught the course matter, not have a prof go off on an anti-Trump tirade in chemistry class. That teachers take kids to lefty protests as part of class-time is pure propaganda.

I really feel bad for kids because they are being robbed of their childhood innocence with all the political crap they are force-fed. It takes a strong person to ignore lefty programming. I guess having it in their faces all the time is making some of them stronger and able to resist.

Another item of note is the length of presidential campaigns today. Before, people didn't start campaigning until election year. Even Trump started campaigning in June of 2015, a year-and-a-quarter before the election.

Running for president is now a full-time job (campaigns rev up the day after the election), while politicians ignore the full-time jobs they currently have. I'm all for a presidential campaign law that states if you currently have an elected job and are running for president, you must immediately resign from that office to do so. That might put a stop to the perpetual campaigns we are now seeing as well as thin the numbers some, and bring a touch of sanity back to all our lives. For the chirren.

I was wondering how you were doing, brother. I hadn't seen you and was going to e-mail. You're not unloved; You're loved by me-not in a romantic sense but as a person I admire and respect and wish the best for. Others here care for you You exhibit care for passing on prayer requests. You mentions friends you have . Who cares if you're fat?-You might be, but people who care for you don't really care unless they have a concern for your health. Ugly?
Not inside. I don't want to get too personal here, but if you feel unloved by "resident evil" and haven't told her please consider doing so-and say you feel hurt and what you need Women respond better to that. Also, pray with her and try to share some things she is grateful to God for about you, I'm sure she has some even if she doesn't express them as much as she should.

I wasn't intending to be here
during this weekend (IT's busy for me) but I guess I clicked on here reflexively. I am going to pray right now that rough places are made smoother for you, dear red.


P.S. If you e-mail I probably won't get a chance to write back tiill Sunday some time but I do care
