We will have a fishing thread later. As always, the chess/dress pr0n thread is an open thread, so there is no such thing as an off-topic comment.



Beginner Problem - White To Play (1070)

Goal: White can force mate in 3 moves
Hint: Use a deflection sacrifice on h8


20191116 - Problem 1.jpg
6k1/4q1b1/p2p3R/3PpB2/2p5/6RK/8/8 w - - 0 1




Intermediate Problem - Black To Play (106

Goal: Black can force mate in 5
Hint: Smash though the pawns


20191116 - Problem 2.jpg
8/ppp3pk/4Q3/6q1/5rr1/1BP3P1/PP3P2/R3R1K1 b - - 0 1



Advanced Problem - Black To Play (1066)

Black is in bad shape. Yes, he's got the R+R v. R+B advantage, but White's connected advanced pawns are crushing. How does Black avoid losing?

(h/t to the lurking chess moron who sent this one to me last month)

Problem solutions will be posted as an update later on.

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

___________

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

games, but at least Oblivion still works on the old computer.)

43 Game thread!

The big news last week was Google Stadia. Rather, the upcoming week since it is scheduled for 19 November. It's a game streaming service.

Yong Yea and Jim Sterling have called shenanigans on this service as it stands now. Questions haven't been answered about how well it will work on household machines.

The main problem is that Stadia flat doesn't support very many games. Only TWELVE as of 19 November. And they're old games which can be streamed already. And Google're asking $60 to play them. Not to own them...

The new Tomb Raider series is okay (at least the first one), and Red Dead Redemption 2 is a classic. And they're planning to make the new Doom available... next year. Same with Cyberpunk 2077.

Looks more like Google sta-DOA, as Yong Yea puts it.

48 Hi OregonMuse
I made it back to Maryhill Museum last weekend. The chess set display remains amazing. They have switched some of the displays about but my favorite remains the ceramic, Socialists v Capitalists, from the bad old days when the USSR was a thing over there. It was the last weekend open until April.
Also checked out the nearby winery. That was both good and expensive.

EA / BiohazardWare are rewriting Anthem, so good luck with that.

Bethesda is banning "helpful" players of Fallout 76. For making them look bad I guess. Because Fallout 76 is a perfect game /s

And Blizzard are going full stream on microtransactions for Diablo 4.

So, you know, another week ending in a day ending in 'y'.

65 Today Melania is seen wearing a midi gown cream colored dress by Dior. It was a custom take on a navy Dior number she wore in Japan. The gilded belt cinched Melania's waist a complimented her shapely figure between the dreamtic draped sleeves and graceful fluid skirt that fell just below her knees.

This was her first Christmas in the White House and she is unveilling its Christmas decorations with a them of "Time-Honored Traditions."

Melania Trump invited youngsters to view the decorations and do crafts, visiting the White House from nearby Joint Base Andrews

The first lady was greeted with squeezes and hugs, as one young boy told her that she looked 'beautiful, like an angel!'

69 I finished the Fallout 76 main campaign about a month ago. I'll probably check back in whenever they get around to introducing NPCs next year. I guess I got my $30 worth out of it.

Been playing Kingdom Come: Deliverance and enjoying it, though I still suck at the swordplay.

I'm wondering if this will be the year I finally upgrade the gaming rig; the GTX 770 is getting long in the tooth.

Speaking of the royals, Prince Randy Andy did an interview trying to 'splain away the Epstein thing:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-7693471

He did not have sexual relations with that underage girl, Virginia Roberts.

Yeah, that's me in the that photo, but I just don't remember it. I don't wear that sort of kit in London, so there's something wrong there. That's me, but I just don't understand.

I was taking Beatrice out for pizza at the time.

No, I had no idea what was going on with Epstein. I live in Buckingham Palace, so I don't pay any attention to all these people running around. I assumed they worked for Jeffrey, and were doing things staff does.

A few years ago the Detroit Institute of Arts had an exhibit of chess sets and that one was included! I was pumped because I saw it in one of my dad's chess set books as a kid. The capitalists were in chains, of course.

If W takes it is stalemate. So

I have always loved them, I don't care what anyone says.

Also, they were offered $750,000,000.00 some years ago to get together and play a few shows again, but turned that down.

92 Skip. Figures prominently in Georgette Heyer Regency romances. Oddly enough that's where I learned the most about it.
An Infamous Army being a great book for learning about the battle. At one time it was used at Sandhurst to teach about the battle. Very well researched and very detailed. May still be used. Heyer was very good at historical detail.

111 Don't care for the dress on Kate or Melania. Both usually hit it out of the park. These both belong in the dugout.

--

I'm with you, Jewells. I don't like either dress. I don't like that sunny yellow color on many people and that material just looks way too couchy. Melania's dress is shapeless, even on her voluptuous figure. They both dress impeccably nearly 100% of the time, but missed the mark on both of these.

"The Power of the Dog"

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and Sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie --
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find -- it's your own affair --
But . . . you've given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!)
When the spirit hat answered your every mood
Is gone -- wherever it goes -- for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We've sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept'em, the more do we grieve;

For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long --
So why in -- Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?
-Rudyard Kipling

20191107_154859.jpg

This spring I vented on a Pet Thread that some asshole shot my 4 year-old cat, Bubbles, and his right leg was amputated.

He seems to have recovered. Bandwidth does not permit the video of pacing, looking for a quiet spot, running inside through the cat door into a bedroom and killing the bird while using my shoes as a trap. Always lovely to clean up, but he was really proud of himself. -Carpe Manana, an original lurker and infrequent commenter

Shooting someone's pet is about as low as a piece of human scum gets. So happy to hear that Bubbles has adjusted to being a 3 legged cat.

Long time lurker and have enjoyed the weekly pet thread. Itís amazing how these animals burrow into our hearts.
This is Dora our Husky mix. She is our 60lb lap dog wondering why I quit scratching her while watching Jeopardy.
She is a mutt and a rescue dog I found while working in NC.
Never could understand why the good Lord sent me to NC when ATL construction was booming.
But it all make sense now.
Had to get Dora.

The Lord does things in mysterious ways at times. 60# lap dog is impressive. She looks like she is a fun dog. Sounds like the rescue was mutual. Thanks!

Longtime lurker. Love Ace of Spades and the pet thread. These useless doggoís are accidental family. Neither were chosen but they wormed their way into our hearts anyway. Bella the pittie is the newest to the family, complements of our son who failed to launch. The big eared guy is Koda, hard to say no to a little girl that wanted a pony and settled for him. He is and always will be the comic relief around our house. They make my life better and thatís all that matters. Koda was there for me after my Dad died and made it his mission to bring me out of the sadness that engulfed me. They both make everyday worth the trouble.

From the look of those two angels it is easy to see how they wormed their way into your hearts. Wonderful story and pets. Thanks for sharing.

Do you know what kind of owl it is? I'm curious because in some years snowy owls come as far south as southern New England for the winter (it's technically called an irruption) even though their normal habitat is Alaska and northern Canada.

For bird watchers and the TX MoMe folks: here's a short video of the owls who live on the campus of Rice University. They're the school's mascots:

17 Such nice and interesting pets today.

Thanks also for finding and posting the article about guide dog rejects. Memories. Back in the early 80's we lived in Morris County N.J. and there was a well known guide dog training school in downtown Morristown. I had to drive around the Morristown Square to get to work and come back home from work and there were always dogs (mostly black labs) being walked by their trainers-practicing curbs and stops and commands.

20 Poor list of dog movies. No "Hachi" or "Old Yeller." Only two on the list I would agree with -- "Lassie Come Home" and "My Dog Skip" (#10?) All the anthropomorphic movies like "Homeward Bound" (including most Disney movies) are a disgrace to canine nature and dignity.

Some years snowy owls make it all the way down to Chicago. They are beautiful. When they show up it makes the news and wildlife photographers go nuts!

28 I really want another dog. We have been dogless for four years, and Ms K and I cannot get on the same page.

She probably loved the last one, a Belgian sheepdog (looks like a black coyote) more than I, or thinks she did. I was a four-day drive away when we had to put the dog down after 14 wonderful years, and I still get a lot of grief for not being there to share the grief.

On a whim, we went into a pet store selling dogs recently and saw a female miniature lab doodle, took her out of the cage and did some cuddling and letting her sniff us, then left the shop saying, hey, we cannot decide this quick.

Went home and watched some YouTube vids of a girl trainer in Toledo showing us what she did with a doodle named Murphy, a young puppy, in eight weeks of training. Walked the dog completely through a busy Lowe's, off leash, the pup absolutely constant at her heel, gleefully matching her pace as she slowed, quickened, turned abruptly, stopped to chat, and made noise pounding a plastic tub.

I thought, could this be done with a $1,400 pet shop puppie, or does one have to go to a breeding ranch and pay $3,600 for one of these?

A doodle is supposedly a not-shedder, but you have to cut their coat.

Whaddya think? Oh, and where we live, rescue is ridiculous. The shelters have nothing but pit bull mix, and three quarters of what they have are taken off the mean streets of San Juan, or from the D.R.

32 hi Les!

Look if you think the dog you saw seemed healthy I wouldn't rule it out. Most of the time they're going to come from "puppymill" type farmers - around here they're Amish. it's not the worst thing in the world but they're probably line breeding any purebred you get, but this is a cross so you're safer from that at least.

I'm surprised you're seeing over three grand for doodles from hobby breeders, but it sounds like you're in Cali so

I prefer breed rescue orgs to shelters. shelters are tough for people nowadays, I agree on that.

the best option is an actual breeder, which would mean no "doodle" - but if you liked your Belgian there are so many great Belgian breeders and a very trong breed rescue!

I like the poodle crosses just fine - they are a total mixed bag tho. Some are AWESOME and some are flaky. they're not "to type" - they're really just mixes. it's hard to imagine paying even two grand for essentially a "custom" mutt. but the mix is a good mix usually.

I was JUST at the dog show and reminded myself of my love for the Belgian breeds, and the normal Labs, and especially the Chesapeake Bay Retrievers. Those dogs are amazing and the fancy (breeders) are fantastic, in the main. Consider a curly coated retriever (I've had two, they're awesome) or a flat coated retriever if you're just looking for a bit different breed than your normal lab (or a chessie!)

and of course poodles are good doggos too

my last word - if you felt great about the pet shop dog, go back and run thru some quick temperament testing with her to be safe, and just be ready for some extra vet visits, but she will probably be just fine. (I have a dog here now that came from an Amish farm, she was free tho lol. she's healthy and pretty much a total goof! she was a "barn dog")

37 We adopted a shelter cat in Atlanta many years ago, that turned out to be a pure Russian Blue.

The kitten was found at the ATL airport near the cargo area, and the vet said it probably got out of a crate.


He was one of the most beautiful, and smartest kittehs we ever had. He'd ride on D'oh's shoulders while he was raking leaves, and then dive off into the leaf pile. And he was quite the hunter of chipmunks and other rodents.

He was also the very last kitteh we ever allowed to go outdoors. We lived on a quiet street, and he used to cross the street in the afternoon to visit his kitty pal. One afternoon as I was gardening after work, he was bugging me, digging up things as fast as I could plant them. I shooed him away.

I remember hearing a commotion coming from the front yard, and a neighbor, in tears, came into the backyard with Duke's body in a plastic hamper. A speeding teenaged driver hit him as he crossed the street.

I had to tell my husband about it over the phone that night when he called from a business trip to Boston. It tore him up. So no more outside kitties for us.

38 My grandsons love the Snow Buddies movie about the golden retriever pups and their sledding adventure.

My granddog is nearly 17 and the Kipling poem struck home as we deal with his infirmities. But of course we will always give our hearts to a new dog to tear.

Each furry loss hurts as much as the first, but missing all the doggie chores and moments is more difficult than the griefs. My maximum time without adopting another has been seven days. One time it was three, the older I get the more programmed I become, and opening the door to let out a dog who is not there does hurt.

Owner of granddog is considering adding a pup to the home, so that routines aren't lost and so that pup can absorb some of the grief when the time comes.

45 The owl was huge. Really huge.

Great horned owls are big enough to make off with foxes, raccoons, house cats, and even small bobcats. And wildlife photographers know to be very careful when taking photos of juvenile great horned owls because the parent birds can attack, with talons capable of exerting as much pressure as a German shepherd's bite. According to a website called Owlcation, the great horned owl is the only bird of prey ever known to have killed a human (the guy was trying to steal the owl's eggs).

Several years ago, when the kiddos were all small, we were coming home from a restaurant.

We got out of the car out front and sudden a YUGE dark shadow swept soundlessly just over our heads and landed on a large branch of the oak next door.

It was a Great Horned Owl and it had to be two feet tall. The Owl sized us up with with the insouciance of an apex predator, decided the kiddos were to big to hunt then ignored us and went back to pursuing the Fine Art of Owlery.

That was the summer most of the rabbits disappeared from our neighborhood.

He was a gorgeous, muscular cat, and very funny. We came home one night, and he was waaaaay up in a very tall pine, swaying back and forth on a limb, yowling. I freaked out because I was afraid he couldn't get down, but he did. He loved to climb.

I watched him tackle a squirrel one day, and the squirrel put up quite a fight. So he left squirrels alone after that. Such a great boy.

The last two we had to put down were two of the sweetest ever. I'm still not over it. On days like today, alone in the house on a cold, blustery day, both Sandy and Spanky would cuddle up right next to me, and almost fight to get up against my neck.

75 Our white Turkish long hair rescue, Princess, was an indoor cat that ran outside one day. She got up on the roof, but refused attempts to get her down, jumped off the roof onto a car, and ran off. We saw her a day later as she went down a street sewer drain and figured that would be the last time we saw her. Three days later she showed up at the door bedraggled, filthy, and somewhat bow legged! She has never gone outside again, even if the door gets left open. She learned her lesson about the great outdoors!

76 We had neighbors in Spokane that raised Russian Blues. Their tom crossed with one of our cats. They wanted the kittens, but they were just a few weeks old when we moved so we kept them. That was Manny, Moe and Jack (the first). No green eyed cats among them but they had those tall pointed ears like the cat above.
Jack number two was at the side of the road when someone deliberately ran over him. That's why I don't have outdoor cats. I hate people like that.
I'm sure Jack number three was a cross, but he also had the big ears and looked like Tobi above. He was the best cat I've ever had, even though he managed to tick me off at times.

105 My husband is the one that came up with the foldies. You can't cross fold to fold. They have a nasty genetic problem (spinal I believe). You have to cross with another breed. The two I have now have like a half folded ear. In a litter, you'll get a mix of folds and non-folds. The cat I don't claim is from a fold litter but has normal ears. She looks a bit like a Persian as she has that flatter face.

Fanny, my youngest cat, was from the last litter of the momma cat. I think my sister-in-law didn't give them the best nutrition as Fanny is still pretty small. She doesn't have real heats either so I've never had her spayed. She is fairly smart and plays fetch. She seems to think I'm a retarded cat. The other fold, Maurice, is from the litter before her. He's normal sized, but doesn't have a very interesting personality. Folds also seem to be a bit on the shy side, compared to other cats.

116 I made socks for my stepson and got him hooked. Then his girlfriend asked for a pair. She is very appreciative, so she got a second pair for her birthday. They live on the coast and wear them around in the house. They want me to make a pair for the baby, which I will tackle for Christmas. Since I work from home, I can work on these during the day. And I have yarn for another cabled sweater for my husband, but he'll be okay with getting it after Christmas. That's really all I want to make gifts for.

Love all the pictures and stories.
I have a funny to share.
Dexter, my 12 year old indoors male cat (previously featured) was in his perch at the window, which looks out on to our back yard. He was annoyed. VERY annoyed.
I came over to see what the problem was.
Another cat was in his yard. A big orange tabby.
It gets worse.
The other cat had caught a rat! It was in its mouth, struggling.
The orange tabby tore the head off of the rat and began to eat. I could see blood. The tabby made eye contact with me and ran off with the rat in its mouth.
He left the head.
Dexter was livid. He hasn't spoken to me since.

170 Now that we're over 100 -- Amazed OT! I'm probably the last to know, but I was setting up my birthday gift (an Xbox One), and discovered that I can actually use it to surf the web!

(My gaming computed died a bit over a week ago. Gonna have to replace Skyrim, and try a few new games, but at least Oblivion still works on the old computer.)

Yeah, I think this Christmas is going to be mostly gift cards. At our ages, we have pretty much everything we really want ... though I like to have at least one "wrapping" present per person.

171 My neighbor surprised me with Wilbur a year ago, just as I was walking out of the garage after storing all the guinea pig stuff. Sometimes I wish she hadn't. We're headed back to the vet Monday. The abscess on the pigling's neck is still draining and he smells to high heaven, despite three baths, regular warm compresses and daily bedding changes.


It's not slowing him down, though. He just hit me up for a small wheel of corn. With the bad tooth gone he's eating like a trencherman.


Did I mention how horrible he smells?

172 How sad is it that in this day and age when we hear the word "lefty" we automatically think of politics instead of the many other completely innocent meanings for the word "lefty.

Yep. I still think of Steve Carlton when I hear the word "Lefty." I'm glad I grew up in a family of baseball fans.

173 165: My sisters cats took it upon themselves to climb the Christmas tree one year. It was an artificial tree. Anyway, the tree tipped over. The one cat ran and hid. The other cat was still clinging to it when my sister came down stairs to investigate. She said the cat had the look of "oh, hai! wat r u doing up? its 3:30 am."

174 any good stories about their dogs and cats peeing on their Christmas trees?

Posted by: Soothsayer, very senile at November 16, 2019 05:11 PM

No peeing stories. But Cat#1 used to knock all the ornaments off the bottom branches of the tree when younger. Now he just tears bows off of packages and pulls tissue paper out of gift bags under the tree.

183 Long before we had Baby put to sleep, I used to ask hubby if we could get a cat after "her time came" and he seemed agreeable. (I'd had cats most of my life, hubby had nearly always had dogs.)

Now? I don't know... there are cats outside (don't know whose but they appear well cared-for & have obviously claimed our yard as their own) and cat fights can be deadly and/or create monstrous vet bills.

If we could have another dog as sweet, smart and well-mannered as Baby... doggo it would be!

We've decided to wait a while. Seems the best pets have just happened into our lives.

Saturday Gardening Thread, International Edition [KT]

Greetings to our gardeners, putterers and those who admire their handiwork! Today we are focusing on submissions from out of the country.

Toucan Sam sent in the beautiful photo above and writes:

Meanwhile in Costa Rica, we are transitioning from wet season to dry season here - beginning early December we will probably will on have few rain showers until probably May.

Here are a few pics of my gardens and some of my friends that stop by to visit. I really enjoy your posts as I've become more interested in plants and animals since I've moved down here.
Pura Vida

Want to take stab at identifying any of the flora or fauna here? Ever had one of these show up in your yard?

Meanwhile, across the Atlantic, I regret to inform you that our Swiss canine garden correspondent, Rocky, has crossed the rainbow bridge. Here he is on a trip to the Swiss-Italian lake country:

rockynflwrs.jpg

And here he is enjoying his garden at home last spring.

rockylick.jpg

His human family couldn't stand the void, and their new dog, Goia, will be introduced soon. She will be bigger than Rocky when she grows up. Meanwhile, the Swiss cows have come down from summer pasture.

Okay, these are Swiss sheep in summer pasture.

24 Somewhat garden related. With the colder temps this weekend, I'll be doing some cooking: soup, stewed apples, roasted onions, navy beans, etc. This is where the herbs we grew this summer and dried come into their own. They are so much better than the stuff from the grocery store.

Posted by: JTB at November 16, 2019 02:11 PM (bmdz3)

25 Two things.


Thing one - I take it that's a plumeria [white, the fragrant kind] in the lead pic? They used to be rare/exotic in soCal not that long ago - now you see them often, and they can be yuuuge. In fact will be cutting my biggest one back soon to contain it.


Thing two. Planted a 6-pack of mixed lettuce varieties last week. Will be adding romaine [red and green] and mizuna this week, if possible. This has worked out very well for the past few years - fresh greens picked-to-order just before use, and often a whole head of something gifted to a neighbor [excess supply], from late December til April.


Any tips/tricks greens growers want to share? This is in a ground-level plot of topsoil that gets more home-made compost 1 or 2 times a year. Have never used fertilizer or any kind of herbi- or pesticide [no need] ..... so, "organic"!!!!

I've always called 1 Plumeria, had on survive in the greenhouse until a horrible freeze in CA, can't kill them in the islands.
The pink one is a pretty common bromeliad. I had one just like that for years (same freeze). 4 is looks to be a species or near species cattleya, then a brassica orchid (sometimes called spider orchid) then the orange is another heliconia. birb, dog, dog...

Posted by: clutch cargo at November 16, 2019 02:17 PM (Z1ykJ)

29 I've kept last year's poinsettia alive through hot summer & even managed to bring it inside before it got kilt by early frost.

I'm not expecting it to rebloom.

And I'm not trying to 'force' it-- it's quite lovely just the way it is-- with plenty of deep green leaves. I pruned it back hard when leaves began to drop Jan/Feb... so it branched out nicely!

I might put it in a pretty basket and add some silk flowers this holiday season, just for fun.

I missed this thread, so 2 week catchup.

'Tis the season for getting Mrs IMGs succulents and other snow-averse plants moved inside. Spent half a day on prepping the ad hoc greenhouse in the basement, then moved plants inside. That was a couple weekends ago. Got them inside in the nick of time. Added more lighting while I was at it.

38 I'm not so sure that pink mushroomy-looking thing is actually a mushroom. Scattered beneath it are what look like spent blooms, and if they came from the "shroom," it ain't a shroom. I wish I knew more about tropical flora, because that one is a head scratcher.

Squirrels should not bother your daffodils. They are poisonous.

As for the crocuses, you can try wire mesh, like hardware cloth, over them. Crocus tomasianus is supposed to be much less enticining to squirrels than other crocuses. It is one species of snow crocus.

51 So I was feeling pretty smug with my THREE persimmon showing themselves on the tree now that the leaves are falling.

Then I walked past a neighbor that had some kind of tree with hardly any branches or leaves, just tons of fruit. I couldn't tell what they were, they kind of looked like citrus - maybe larger than lemons and with a big navel at the end - but there were no leaves so I couldn't tell. It was trimmed the way the Japanese do with thick trunk and short branches, and had dozens of fruit.

They must think I am a gardening idiot (I am) with my trees and leaves and stuff, and no fruit.

Of course, I have another neighbor who grows grapes and mine are way better than his but he doesn't spray so I have to deal with his pests on my vine each year. He also prunes them the way they do and grapes need big leafs after each fruit for energy.

My cherry (you all remember my cherries..) are losing leaves and I have to prune soon. I have luck waiting until cold windy day when dormant. If I prune in summer They get diseased tips from the wound. I read a lot of different advice on pruning cherry and have tried them all, but this seems to work best here.

I have my bee house and pollen brush all ready for spring. Last year I got hundreds of flowers and only 10 cherry.

52 Early report from Idaho's Treasure Valley (I might do another later):
Lots more raking - 7 bags of sycamore leaves on the curb Monday night, but there are tons still to go. An inversion is keeping us from burning them all.
Raked and shredded a huge pile of silver maple leaves - it has now re-covered the ground beneath it, though not to the same density - yet.
Rose barrier strip has now been caulked and bolted shut at both ends. Next spring, we paint straight glyphosate on any sprouts outside the barrier.
This morning, we cut off most of the Siberian iris leaves - trash is full but there are 4 more clusters to go. Not yet decided whether to cut off all the Calamagrostis 'Overdam' (med.-tall bunchgrass) leaves and plumes.

WikiHow has a guide on how to re-flower poinsettia. (Our schedule is so crazy - and the plant I have is so large, I gave up on trying to jam a box over it every night.)

59 Nurse ratched, I've noticed that squirrels don't bother the daffodil bulbs but love just about any others, particularly tulips.

So, I put down chicken wire after planting and pinned it down with bent pieces of wire coat hangers. Make only 2 "garden staples" per hanger; you want them to go deep into soil so the little b@st@rds can't dig 'em up. (I used a boltcutter, btw, to cut many and quickly.)

Cover the ugly wire with a nice mulch. Your pretties will grow right through it, no problem.

60 Nurse Ratched, your posting about the bushy-tailed tree rats reminded me of a story that a yoga teacher told me. He was sitting on the porch of his home one summer afternoon, when a tree rat hopped into his garden, dug up a bulb, took one bite, dropped it, then gave the storyteller that "You gonna do something about it, huh?" look. Then it dug up another bulb, took a bite, dropped it, and gave him the look again. Then it started to dig up a third bulb, when ... WHAM! a red-tail pounced, gave it the coup-de-grace in the back of the neck with its beak, and flew off with the carcass. The teacher and I high-fived each other. Man, that story made my day.

To the Democrats Marie, Not Elise, was yesterday's star [KT]

Elise-Stefanik-Impeach.png

Good morning! I ran across some additional takes to add to Ace's posts from yesterday, regarding how these two women were treated at yesterday's hearing. The hearing was an amazing political exercise. Not in a good way.


Ace sets the stage:

Schiff has made up New Rules -- unilaterally -- that the only Republicans permitted to ask questions are Devin Nunes and a staffer who I think is named Castor. A source says Castor is a good lawyer, but people are telling me he's coming off as a real blank on TV.

And Schiff made up a rule saying that he would be one of the only two people to question "Masha" Yavonovich, the former Obama-holdover ambassador to Ukraine fired by Trump. . .

When Nunes moved to yield his time to Ellie Stafanovic, Adam Schiff and his Ten Inch Neck started banging the gavel to shut her up.

Meanwhile:

Nunes questions why Yavonovich is even a witness -- she has absolutely no knowledge of these Impeachable Phone Calls we keep hearing about.

The only reason she was called by Democrats is so that she can Appeal to Women with her Sad Stories about how Sad she was when Trump fired her.

Sharyl Attkisson

One question I'd like to have seen asked: "If Ukraine's new president distrusts U.S. Ambassador-- rightly or wrongly-- should that person stay in the position? Or for the good of the US, should she be replaced with someone who can have a productive relationship?"

Legal Insurrection has a nice piece on Elise Stefanik's part in the hearings, as well as some background on her district. William Jacobson mentions "stardom". There are several video clips included at the link. "I can watch these videos over and over. And probably will."

Nunes made a good choice in choosing her to speak, I think. First a quote:

President Obama's own State Department was so concerned about potential conflicts of interest from Hunter Biden's role at Burisma that they raised it themselves while prepping this wonderful Ambassador nominee before her confirmation. And yet our Democratic colleagues and the Chairman of this Committee cry foul when we dare ask that same question that the Obama State Department was so concerned about.

No wonder Schiff wanted to shut her up. Andrew Klavan: Nevertheless, she persisted.

Jacobson, about her district:

For those of you who go way back with Legal Insurrection, NY-21 was a hot topic here in 2009 when Republican infighting and subterfuge handed the seat to Democrat Bill Owens in a Special Election defeat of conservative candidate Doug Hoffman. It was more important to state Republicans that a Tea Party insurgent lose than that Republicans hold the seat. Owens barely hung on to the seat in 2010 and 2012, but chose not to run for reelection in the 2014 cycle.

Stefanik won the seat in 2014, at age 30. At the time, the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. Stefanik has won re-election pretty easily every since.

At the hearing:

First, she took on Schiff. But because she's Republican, Schiff received media cheers not scorn for trying to shut her up.

She took Schiff to the woodshed over his flip flop on having the so-called Whistleblower testify. . .

She score a substantive home run by pointing out that the Obama administration was concerned about Hunter Biden's actions in Ukraine, so much so that she was prepped on the subject in advance of her Senate confirmation hearings. So why, she asked, is it wrong when Republicans to have the same concerns about Hunter Biden that the Obama administration had?

And John Hayward pointed this out about part of the former ambassador's actual testimony:

Boy, it's a good thing giving false testimony to Congress isn't a crime when Democrats do it, or Yovanovitch could be in some really hot water here.

Back to Ace and the Ambassadors as Superheroes theme.

It was reported in The Hill that the vacuous Yovanovitch testimony had given the Democrats a new burst of momentum.

Oh, and Trump engaging in witness intimidation, to make the witness cry.

There was witness intimidation today, but it was not done by President Trump.

The only one who intimidated a witness was Adam Schiff. He's the one who brought up Trump's tweet to Maria Yovanavitch DURING HER testimony, pressuring & questioning her into making it a big deal.


Let's relax a little

36 This Marie Yovonovith reminds me of 80% of Peace Corp volunteers I
met when I did my stint with them. On the whole they were extremely
liberal, well credentialed, well traveled, did very little useful work
but were sure they were saving the world and they were Gods gift to the
American public. who they were often contemptuous of. They all wanted a job with the Federal govt after
finishing their "service" and the foreign service was considered the
best of all worlds. They will tell you how hard they worked and
suffered in their dangerous, but vital jobs but this is rarely the case.


Locals
were rarely impressed by volunteers, although they often found them amusing
and we always called Peace Corps the longest vacation you can never
leave because of the large amount of, um, extracurricular activities. At the end of service we went to a resume and job hunting seminar
where we were told how to frame our extended vacation to sound like it
was very important work. Heard a lot of those buzzwords yesterday from
Yovonovitch



I would not be the least bit surprised to find Yovonvicth did a couple years with Peace Corps before starting her illustrious career of public service

This whole process has been quite illuminating. For years, many of us have been warning about the dangers of the administrative state aka Deep State. We were routinely mocked by the "smart set" for being conspiracy theorists.

They've now moved to openly bragging that they really run things and our votes are not to be taken seriously. Over and over we hear from these geniuses that they were just trying to implement US foreign policy and not what Trump wanted done.

The dysfunction is now in the open for all who choose to see it.

57 answer: even though the roots for "noon" go back to old english, its origin is latin, not anglo-salon. but why not midi (french for noon) or something like that, arising from meridiem, the latin word for noon?

noon comes from nones, the ninth hour after dawn, or 3:00. over about two hundred years during the 12th to 14th centuries the time gradually went to 12:00, or noon.

I've related this before. Once I was staying at an old in which overlooks the Potomac, at Harper's Ferry.

Some of the rooms were in an external building. Walking up to the inn for dinner, I saw an assemblage of people in what can only be described as costumes. Mostly kaftans, brightly colored. One had a 'crown' fashioned from crepe paper and tinfoil.

They were youngish, in their 20's. Well, naturally, I stopped and asked what was going on. The guy I spoke to told me that they were doing State Department training.

Not fired, unfortunately. Transferred.

Geoffrey Pyatt was the ambassador to Ukraine before Yovanovitch. He was made ambassador to Greece in May 2016.

Despite its drawbacks, I actually enjoyed my time in the Peace Corps, had a lot of great adventures in remote third world country and, unlike most volunteers, managed to do some useful work, probably because I was older and actually had some work experience. Overall though, PC it is a huge waste of taxpayer money and make-work for more govt employees, just a useful foot in the door for permanent govt "service" Everything I heard about VISTA (AmeriCorps) is far worse and more blatantly politicized.

77 big donors get cushy ambassadorships ... but in Ukraine, which was grifter central, they needed a duly cooperative DeepStater ... to cover the crimes.


Tip of the Spear ... sure, for the DS Cartel ... they are the public front at least, for bribery by Burisma and bad banks, to get the US support. But the military is the spear, which when yielded by Obama, stands down and offers Russia Crimea.


A military guy on Tucker last night said a big problem was these Obama apparatchiks wanted to push Ukraine into NATO. He said that becomes a real threat to Russia, who (while weak, not dead) might not stand down, but might actually become more hostile. And Obama was fine with the US funding NATO on the EUs behalf.


I don't have any comprehensive view on the region, but the globalist grifters want to make the money, while the US goes deeper in debt being global policeman on their behalf. Trump wants these nation states to be allies, but to stand on their own. (our trade policies would support that, as we decouple from China)

This would apply to S Korea, Japan, Israel/Sauds/Jordan/Egypt ... we step back from the front lines, but retain superpower command and control, emphasis on everyone pulling their own weight, retaining their sovereignty. That means the grifter machine doesn't get to use our military as their private hit man ... as seems to have happened with Soros/Burisma and the Ukraine coup. but it is foggy to me ...

I know that she inherited her big mouth and stupidity from her dumbass father, but surely her homewrecking mother has given her some clue that the family reputation is about to go deep in the shitter and that she should dial back on spiteful tweets.

The_Donald uncovered a tweet Roger Stone did about her dad, way back, telling him to burn in hell. She apparently has a long, vindictive memory, and did an homage to that tweet (that no one but her remembers.) She could have made the exact same point without resorting to telling him to go to hell. That kind of language is supposedly what she and her fellow harpies on the View squawk about as destroying the public discourse. Way to take the low road, Meggie Mac.

I think her real prob is that people like Stone refuse to let her build an unopposed hagiography of her father, keep removing the halo they are trying to polish. She needs to let her dad exist warts and all, own up he made huge mistakes. She cannot let this be. It is gross.

The writer Erica Jong's daughter whose last name escapes me (Molly?) but whose last name is Jong-Fast, wailed on Twitter that Elise Stefanik was so very disrespectful, and that everybody should donate to the Democrat running against her for Congress. Disrespectful? Schiff is a rude clown. If the Democrats didn't have double standards they'd have no standards at all.

176 I've known a professional US diplomat. Yes, you get assigned to shitholes occasionally, particularly early in your career, but you are spending more than half your time assigned to Washington, and the rest of the time you're usually getting assigned to pretty pleasant places. Your housing overseas is paid for, and can get quite ritzy, particularly at the senior levels.

Somebody should do a video tour of the US Ambassador's residence in Kiev - no wonder Yavonovich bitterly regretted losing "her house".

The shithole countries have small embassy staffs - it's not like trade is a concern, and the fact that a place is a shithole means minimal staffing. New diplomats are frequently assigned to shitholes, not just because no one wants to be there, but because they have a lot more responsibility than at a nicer embassy, precisely because the staffs are kept so small. It's good for training.

A recurring theme. Did some leeches attach themselves to the Tea Party? Is water wet? Are most politicians lying sacks of shit?

That's ALL the same question, yo!

I want to reflect for a second on Trump and the Tea Party. At one point, after the election of The Turd With Flappy Ears, the TP had the support of 31% of the voters, including me. Thas a pretty big 'special interest' group, and was bipartisan. The real kind, composed of voters.

So of course, the media HAD to slay us. And since we became moar anathema than ketchup on a hotdog to them, the TPers went underground. 'Public' support plummeted.

A looooong 8 years later, we re-emerged as Trump supporters. Like antibiotic resistant TB, we persevered. In 2012 the Surrender Caucus gave us Mitt the Surrender Shit, their last gasp. And we took the recommended pain pill, losing, and abided like The Dude.

And they are STILL trying to kill us all off.

And it STILL ain't working.

233 Listened to a bit of Barr's talk, ok/meh, mostly obvious stuff, but need to go listen to the part about judicial constitutional vandalism. That's the key issue - and one Barr and the legal cult have hitherto completely ignored - if they even can detect or understand the concept.


In fact, to say [as he did in the part I watched] that the legislature has encroached on executive power is a bit dubious on its face - an enormous problem is the exact opposite, Congress de facto ceding enormous power to the executive, in the form of the administrative state.


Judiciary has usurped in an unprecedented manner since Trump was inaugurated. Beginning with one of the most audacious outrages, over the travel EO.


It was the whole package - plaintiffs who could not possibly have standing [if national policy legally founded by Congress and executed by the president is to have any meaning]; outright, absurd defiance of clear law by a judge just making s**t up; and, making it much much much more important, in an area with zero judicial competence or authority - a president making a national security call based on intelligence recommendations, all clearly within the law and his constitutional authority.


Words to the Federalist society, given the context and realities, are at the lowest end of cheap.

236 19 I served as a Medical Officer in the Army for 13 years. While my service was honorable there is no way on earth that I would attempt to equate it with the service of those heroic men and women who actually stood in harm's way at risk to life and limb. For this State Department employee (who, as an ambassador, enjoyed the highest level of U.S. protection during her overseas postings) to drape herself in the fabric of actual heroes while sabotaging POTUS is about as despicable as I can imagine.

This is the one that I don't get. Michelle Bachman once asked Tim Geithner (I think that was the guy) what his Constitutional authority was -- as in, which part of the Constitution gave him the authority to do whatever he was doing. He sat there all tongue-tied but I thought he missed an opening. Just go to the part of the Constitution where Congress makes laws, etc., you dummy.

I mean to me, this COULD HAVE BEEN like that scene in Die Hard where Hans Gruber says to Holly McClane, "What idiot put you in charge?" and she says "You did."

That is such bs. It doesn't take a whole lot of waxing or plucking before hair just doesn't grow back at all. This happened to a friend of mine who had very trendy, very thin eyebrows for several years. What *very* little she has left is now getting even thinner over time, and she'll soon have no eyebrows at all. Estheticians tell her she'll have to learn to draw them on.

I don't know why Trump puts up with her. She's like someone who shows up at a party with a fat loudmouth who eats all the food, drains all the booze and sits around farting and demands to watch porn.

I think she has a lot of dirt in her past. That would explain why she was so reluctant to leave her hot zone. She knew how much Hunter was making, she cultivated her own relationship with a billionaire.....and she was set to make millions too!
Instead she is teaching some punks at Georgetown about safe spaces in hot zones....while still on the State Department payroll for doing nothing.

Saturday morning. That can only mean at least one thing. Some items that didn't get their fair share of attention here at the AoSHQ this past week.

***


  • This certainly is surprising as in "No shit, Sherlock."

  • Someone needs to seek attention in a different way or three.

  • FFS. Special Snowflakes are worldwide.

  • Happily married 40 years. Married for 80. J/K

  • Rejection is a bitch.

  • Ouch!

  • Nice try. But, you be the Judge.

  • Gin and tonic? Yes. Gin and elephant poop?


    Enjoy these stories or something else that tickles your fancy. After all this is an open thread. Just a couple of rules, no running with sharp objects, no pulling the 'ettes pony tails and be nice to one another.

    Have a great weekend!!!

    Use canned food as a base.

    Example: Tired after work, no interest in cooking, but don't want pre-packaged meal.

    So I set water boiling and while waiting for it to heat, cut up an onion and some celery. Then I pick what kind of soup I want. I went with beef, so I open a can of roast beef, add some potatoes, maybe rice and let it boil for a little bit, season and serve.

    Also get leftovers out of it.

    Thursday I threw a frozen bag of potatoes O'Brian into a skillet, and once it got going, added a can of Spam, attacking it aggressively with the spatula to break it up and distribute it evenly. Nice little 'breakfast for dinner.'

    Headline: Legal marijuana has led to increased use, risk for abuse among teens


    Opening sentence: "The legalization of recreational marijuana in some states has led to a slight uptick in reports of cannabis use disorder among teens, a new study suggests."


    Disclaimer buried deep in the article: "The authors caution that their findings are limited by the fact that respondents to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health self-reported their marijuana use, and that responses may therefore not reflect actual usage trends."

    I'm already inured to spending months out of the year indoors, except that here it's sweaty steamy heat out there and I'm huddling around the air conditioner. When the weather at last cools, I burst outside like a dog who's been cooped up in the house and wants to *play*. I figure, trade hot for cold in that scenario, and I'll be fine.

    I lived in Denver for 4 years, and while it's not the same kind of cold as WI, and snow only fell about once a month Oct-April, I have the right idea: layers, a hat, gloves, winterize the car and the pipes in the house.

    From what I've seen, too, you can get one hell of a lot more house in my price range in WI's smaller cities and towns than I could dream of down here -- nicer looking houses, with garages.

    At a recent interaction with a State level politician, we were basically told that one of the ways to finance the Kirwan Commission's 4 Billion dollar funding requirement for education would be the revenue stream created by legalizing recreational marijuana.

    Just watched two episodes this am of a 1950s TV series called Decoy. Beverly Garland plays an undercover policewoman in NYC. No sexism; the male cops treat her as a woman but also a colleague; Beverly's Casey Jones is as feminine a woman as you might want, but with a steel policewoman core. And she goes undercover not just as strippers and whores, but as a secretary in an office, as a junkie, and other things. All without acting like a man, unless you count handling her revolver as proficiently as a male cop would.

    There's your "strong woman." But the series is never mentioned in retrospectives on TV.

    Elephant Poop-Infused Liquor - a limerick

    On safari I was feeling Moron-ic
    So I pulled a prank somewhat ironic
    At a pub called "Rear-ender"
    I asked the bartender
    To give me a Gin and Colonic.

    The guy who did the undercover videos showing Planned Parenthood execs admitting that they sell baby body parts got slammed with a multi-million-dollar judgment this week.

    His grave offense that justified the huge damage award to the PP baby-sellers? Trespassing. See, he gave a fake name to the PP killers in order to get their permission to go onto their premises to videotape them laughing about how much they were making off the selling of dead baby parts. The judge determined that giving the fake name meant that he got onto the premises by stealth, which was trespassing, and clearly a horrible crime such as trespassing should be severely punished by bankrupting the guy.

    The powers-that-be, which includes the corrupt judge in this case, are determined that there will not be any actual journalism committed in this country. At least, not any journalism that hurts Dims and their causes, like killing babies.

    192 " self-reported their marijuana use, and that responses may therefore not reflect actual usage trends."


    legalizing marijuana led to a slight uptick in self reporting of using marijuana.

    If they aren't going to actually stop the drugs from coming across the border, I guess maybe growing marijuana and taxing it is a profitable enterprise that generates more tax revenue for the government to steal.


    But till we get rid of the DeepState mafia that imo, supports the invasion of the cartels to aid in globalist war against middle America ... till then we don't know if we could actually stop all the trafficking if government wasn't run mostly as a grift machine (and a vote buying machine).

    193 Anyone heard from Beatoff O'Cuck lately? Has a search party been sent out? Maybe he and Eric SwallowsWell have teamed up to fight crime by going door-to-door and taking people's guns?

    Beatoff's got to know that he's now utterly unelectable in Texas (except maybe as mayor of Austin or something like that). I mean, he's stupid, but he's not that stupid.

    My theory: Beatoff discovered that campaigning is too much like actual work, so he intentionally torpedoed his own political career. That frees him up to go back to his true calling: being a useless layabout mooching off his FIL's money.

    I'm very leery of studies that show "links."

    What kind of link? Is it like "alcohol-related" where someone in one of the cars in an accident had a single drink within so many hours of it happening?

    I think a lot of the mental illnesses correlated with pot use can be explained as people self-medicating. It can lead to feedback loop, but in the absence of mj, they might have used liquor or something harder.

    Basically, most 'medical studies' are fund-raising exercises.

    I had to do something similar for my late tuxedo cat Oreo. In her last two weeks she refused to use the litter box and wanted to relieve herself under my desk -- and the floor is carpeted. I bought large garbage bags, cut them open, and taped them in place, then cleaned up after her. She was an elderly lady -- I was told she was 5 when I adopted her, but she probably was older, and she died about 6 years after she came to live with me. So she couldn't help it.

    245 Used to be, whenever the big circus was in town, they would hire any and all single-axle dump trucks, with driver, to haul away elephant ordure. So, I have been just about that close to large quantities of elephant droppings.


    They are rather inoffensive as droppings go, and were in demand as additives to field manures and compost. I would put them as less bad than pig, less sharp than fresh horse, and maybe about equal to bullshit. We still had to hose the truck bed out like there was no tomorrow, when done.


    You have to keep in mind that in all the centuries before all chemicals and substances were neatly segregated for formulaic use, the damnedest things used to be right there in the recipe. There are beer instructions from after Shakespeare's time that call for cattle manure to be placed into beer barrels between batches, to "purify" them. So the presence of poop in beer is Old.
    And that's it. All the good stuff I can say about elephant poop in the liquor. Frankly I am not for it.

    I find cats far more interesting than dogs, which is why I tolerate them. (I am quite happy with not pets, but when the wife and kids demanded, I accepted cats.) Dogs are pretty much all there - not very subtle.

    Cats try to be inscrutable, and I've found that carefully observing our cats has given me insight into human body language.

    I'm convinced cats laugh at us all the time, even though they don't show it. And manx cats - I once had a manx cat and across the alley from us was a house with a 7' chain link fence and this big german shepard that would bark like crazy whenever anyone or anything walked down the alley. So I'd hear him barking like he was going insane, slobbering mad, and I'd go look and our manx had gone within about 12 inches of his chain link fence. and then she had just laid down and was slowly grooming herself. While the dog went crazy.

    that was some world class level taunting there.

    There is profit in it, especially for a use that will be not as identifiable as pot as smoking it. So they make what they think is a useful product and don't understand that oil will kill your lungs.

    And dumbasses are going to kill people when they do dumb crap for other dumbasses to take internally.

    So I doubt that an established company would set up a clandestine production line to place an intentionally poisonous product into a black market distribution to force customers back to their product. They would be better served to get into the vaping business so they won't all go to jail for murder.

    Now, states hate vaping for some reason, so I could see "missing" some illicit producers just to give a basis for banning the whole technology.

    332 There are people in our country, dangerous people, who no longer believe or support a constitutional republic. They believe individual freedom, The Bills of Rights and a government owned and elected by the people is a quaint notion of bygone days. These despots live and exist in every facet of American life today. They live largely in out government institutions, which have shown themselves to be no friend of the people if you choose a person as president who is not their cult king. They exist in the Democratic Party, who is nothing of the sort and who finds and leads the subversion and conspires with the media to dupe the people and undermine the truth. They prosper amongst the corporations and breed with money provided by authoritarian insurrectionists like Soros and his liege. They infect our judiciary and law enforcement arms to undermine our system of justice and wield it like a weapon. They even breed in the citizenry and sit on juries like Manafort and Stone to help the corruption take root and to punish those who don't agree with them as a warning.

    It should be clear to even the most casual observer that Democrats want to rule with an iron hand, not govern, and that a vote for them is a vote for despotism. Take stock of what I've just articulated and show me where it's not true or verifiable in cities or states where Democrats already rule. Every single policy proposal they make forces or coerces you to give up a right, your property, your fortune, your right to disagree or ability to choose.

And that is, for every question, act very helpful and cooperative, and then start into some long story that goes back to your 7th grade social studies class and how you all knew you teacher was having an affair with the principle, and if you can kill a couple hours running circles like that eventually even the questioners get sick of it and leave you alone.

    352 Janet Yellen's reign at the Fed along with that buffoon Bernanke will go down as the worst "recovery" in our history. That's due to two factors, their cultist adherence to inflation as a single metric which resulted in a ability to examine other measures and politics. It can only be explained by that. I also won't discount that Barky and his fellow travelers didn't believe in liberty or capitalism. Nothing else explains their failure to push on the same measure that Trump has to supercharge our economy. That would be lower taxes, improved trade policies and less regulations, to name a few. The latter is especially important as it is a device that despots use to strangle the free market and put it under government control. That's really what Barry wanted.

    I don't know who this guy is but I am surprised that more "honest" Leftists haven't become scared to death of the Democrat Media Complex's lionizing of the Intelligence Services--with some even seemingly open to a military intervention in the taking down of a duly-elected BY THE PEOPLE president.

    This would have been unthinkable among Leftists in the '60's and '70's.

    371 Yovanovitch claims that Amb. Sondland told her to flatter President Trump to keep her post--maybe something like "I'm still the President's wing-man, so I'm there with my boy,". Or maybe he really just told her to express support for the President and his policies. In any case, that was beneath her. How gauche. How declassee. It's simply not done!

    Yet it is done. She was perfectly willing to kiss Biden's ass to get the post in the first place. She was given a script at her confirmation hearings and forced to sugar-coat Hunter Biden's corruption at Burisma to get the post. They literally put words in her mouth.

    There's a phrase for that: witness intimidation.

    By the way, it's not witness intimidation to criticize an employee's job performance--ask Billy Dale. If it is, then let's ban federal job performance reviews and do away with bonuses.

    If Yovanovitch was truly fighting corruption, she would have thrown the Bidens out of the country.

    Instead, she fought to hide the corruption until neither America nor Ukraine could stomach her act anymore.

    372 on the topic of being questioned, and answering without lying - a very good tactic, if you can pull it off (and it's hard, it takes intelligence and discipline) is to do what Verbal did in Usual Suspects, when he's being questioned. And that is, for every question, act very helpful and cooperative, and then start into some long story that goes back to your 7th grade social studies class and how you all knew you teacher was having an affair with the principle, and if you can kill a couple hours running circles like that eventually even the questioners get sick of it and leave you alone. And the best part is that everything you say can be perfectly true.

    378 I dunno. Need to go check my figures, but I remember that about 55% of Americans have stock market investments, either directly or through a 401. That's a pretty big number and if I remember correctly it also doesn't include other types of fixed income only investments.

    Don't forget that overall, a good stock market is one indicative of a good economy which manifests itself in other ways. So I believe it's good for the president to mention it in concert with other economic indicators.

    By the way, there is conversely a good reason Democrats keep betting against the American people and telling us it's all going to crash. Dickheads.

    382 re vaping and Vitamin E acetate -- A few nights ago, I expounded on WHY it is being used as a vape carrier solvent.

    Nicotine is soluble in glycerin, a water soluble/miscible solvent. And glycerin has long been used in cigarettes to cause them to self extinguish when you don't puff on them frequently.

    THC, otoh, is an OIL soluble active ingredient. Glycerin doesn't work. So they had to find an oil based carrier. Enter vitamin E acetate. Sounds healthy, right? A fookin' VITAMIN?

    It's like smoking olive oil. Good to eat, bad to smoke.

To the extent they acted on their own to obstruct POTUS, they should be prosecuted after being fired.

    >>Ukraine's leaders campaign against pro Putin Trump

    >>Fears over effect Republican's victory would have on US policy towards Kiev

    The rot is so deep, I just don't think it can be cut out, and I'm not sure we have the forces to defeat them without guns. And even with guns, I don't know that we're prepared for it.

    Posted by: BurtTC at November 16, 2019 10:21 AM (hku12)

    Lack of a logical connect here. The toxic black market vapes are sold as a vehicle to get THC into your lungs. The people who buy this shit are stoners, not your average tobacco user who wants to give up smoking and switch to a nicotine vape. The stoners are using the vapes so they can toke up in places where smoking a joint would not be tolerated.

    And as far as selling "lethal" drugs goes, since when has that ever stopped dealers from selling cocaine, meth, heroin, or fentanyl, all of which can kill you dead if you get enough of it in you? The dose makes the poison.

    But then, diplomats never were honest folk to begin with, so I guess it shouldn't really surprise me to find that even the rationalisation for their own necessity was a lie.

    35 Damn , Vic.
    I had just heard the other day that a new Charlie's Angels even existed.
    And according to your link, the reviewer was the ONLY person sitting in the theater to see it on opening day.
    Now........that's not a good trend.

    I was at the theatre to see Midway and the Chucks Angles preview came on.
    The preview couldn't even make it look good.

    36 You know, Charlie's Angels was permission to print money.

    Hot chicks, small outfits, etc., and society has full-on accepted lipstick lesbian make-out scenes in Hollywood so at least one of the hot chicks in a small outfit would be okay in a role of seduction to accomplish a mission.

    $500M on opening night, and instead they get one person in the theater.

    41 I thought I'd repeat the words of my neighbor and friend a former platoon sergeant who led men into battle in Vietnam. A grizzled good guy who admonished me on my recent dark musings of despair:

    "I am pretty well versed how these people (deep staters) will react when they have an agenda that will fail.

    "Schumer is still in hiding from the public. I personally think he poops his pants now that there is a criminal investigation into basically the deep state. Schiff is so stupid that he believes that he is immune from the investigation. It is only a matter of time.

    Continued, but moderating, cold here. Around midday I'll depart for points south to close up our summer place for the winter by shutting off the water, draining the water lines and blowing them clear with pressurized air. It's mostly routine, except for the part where I crawl underneath to open some valves to drain several supply lines AFTER the water supply has been cut, so cleaning up involves setting aside a substantial quantuty of hot water in advance.

    _______________

    Yes, but if he had "thin Hawaiian blood" from having lived in Honolulu as a child, it would have thickened up substantially after living in NYC (when he went to Columbia), then 3 years in Boston (going to Harvard Law), and then decades in cold and windy Chicago, which is where he lived before he moved into the White House.

    Barky has spent many more years living in cold climates than he did living in warm ones, so the "thin Hawaiian blood" excuse for his cranking up the WH thermostat was just a load of b.s.

    Musical Interlude



    I introduced the ONT to Mary Prankster a few years back. It was hard to limit myself to just 3 songs, her whole catalog is great. Tits and Whiskey, Mercyfuck, Punk Rock Heaven... I could go on and on. In my opinion, she's the most gifted lyricist to come out of the Baltimore area since Frank Zappa.

    Anyhow, she's mostly retired now, but she'll be doing 2 shows in the area at the end of this month for Pranksgiving. I already have tickets for the second show, but Moron Furious George has two tickets to the show at the Ottobar in Baltimore on the 29th. Sadly, he can't make it, and he'd love for them to go to a fellow Moron. If anyone is interested, email me (my nic at gee, mail!) and I'll put the two of you in contact.


    Politics


    If Michael Doran Were on Wall Street, He’d Be a Billionaire Excellent article about the cost of being right in DC.

    When asked to describe his approach to foreign policy, he insists it’s just good, old-fashioned realism.

    “It’s foreign policy realism based on states and their interests,” he said. “It’s what realism would look like if the people who call themselves realists were actually true to the intellectual principles that they claim to espouse.”

    Instead, he continued, too many of these people, under the sway of progressive politics, turned to moralism instead. “Progressivism,” he said, “is a modernist Protestant utopianism that believes in the perfectibility of mankind and believes the U.S. should be the vanguard bringing about the perfection of humanity. Trump revealed to us that much of the foreign policy elite on the right is simply the muscular wing of this progressivism. So traditional ideas going all the way back to Thucydides about how states should protect their interests are discarded, and a call for prudence is very easily depicted as a debased, immoral position.”

    78 I live in South Western Minnesota on an acerage, that's the term for a house that used to be a farm but is no longer. I rent ten acres, the house and two outbuildings, a garage and a quonset. My landlord farms the 240 acres surrounding my house.
    Anyway, I shoot anything I desire any time I desire. Rifle, pistol, black powder... Often using Tenerite as a fun multiplier. I've had neighbors drive into the yard during our firing range operations, bringing their own weapons and joining in. North Dakota will be much the same, good God fearing Americans, bring long underwear.

    Not content yet, he asked "Did they seem crazy when you started going out with them?"

    We went thru areas that were completely burned to ashes down to the foundations of homes. Coffee fire. Tubbs fire. They are being rebuilt slowly. It takes up to 2 years just to get permits.
    If your home burns down to the foundation, you have to replace the foundation.
    And all the pipes and wires underneath.

    The North American Hoofed Rat has no natural predators now (besides us, where allowed by law) since we've eliminated them all due to the fact that they don't differentiate between wild and domestic animals.

    128 the USSR's desperate housing shortage could have been ameliorated with taller structures, but the country didn't possess sufficient raw materials to supply elevators for apartments above five stories.

    Right - because there were no tall apartment buildings in the USSR. And the Soviet Union didn't have enough raw materials for building tall buildings. /s

    What the idiot author was taking about was Khrushchevki (because they were mostly built under Khrushchev) - Soviet regulations required that an elevator had to be installed in any apartment building over five stories tall, so lots of five story apartment buildings got built, to avoid the elevator requirement. Apartments built in a Soviet city center were generally much taller than that.

    The guy's argument basically is that a country that didn't have toilet paper couldn't possibly nuke us - anyone who knows how much of Soviet spending went to the military would understand that fallacy.

Even In blue enclaves like washington or California, there are a lot of conservatives. Even in Texas you have Austin. Things go south, it will be a whirling salad shooter of blood.

    Yep. The first Civil War had fairly clear cut geographic borders with the North and the South. CWII won't. It will be a bloody mess. A Balkan War on a American scale.

    What great choices you listed!

    - As I Sat Sadly By Her Side
    - And No More Shall We Part

    So (Peter Gabriel)
    - Red Rain
    - Sledgehammer

    bth, The Comforts of Madness, especially the opening two numbers, were a great comfort to me in the spring of 1990.

    190 "Another album that starts with two great songs, because every song on it is great"

    I got that feeling from the Killers' first album "Hot Fuss". And the Cure's "Disintegration".

    A standard pattern on a best selling album seems to be to start off with an epic, and move on to some catchy top 40 pop song. Of course, that assumes you have first written the material, like the Killers did in 2004 and the Cure in 1989.

    Otherwise you just got an album full of try-hard filler like Peter Murphy in 1992. "Holy Smoke" was shite.

    I guess I would consider myself a "classic rock" fan. But IMHO what is considered "classic rock", and what's not, is very much irrational and crazy.

    In my book for instance, 1950s rock standards (Elvis, Buddy Holly, Del Shannon) should be considered classic rock. No, they're just considered oldies.

    Where I live the suburb incorporated into a city decades ago to prevent a nearby city from annexing desirable parts.

    One situation assumes a robust system of law enforcement, that is heavily tilted in favor of one faction. The other assumes a total breakdown of that system, where it can't effectively exert its will on any faction, in no small part because of fractures within its own ranks.

    In the second scenario, might makes right, and atrophied suburbanite hothouse flowers subsisting on soy products from Whole Foods won't fare nearly as well, without well-fed legions of well-armed and well-paid LE agents defending them.

    277 If the bad guys win, tens of millions more will die in the subsequent commie purges, pogroms and famines.

    French Revolution, Russian Revolution, and Mexican Revolution all ended with the bad guys winning. And then they faced a reaction: Vendee, Civil War, and Cristeros respectively.

    French Revolution crushed Vendee but ended up with an Imperial government and soon-enough a Bourbon restoration.

    Russian Revolution plain won their war and ended up Stalin.

    Mexican Revolution ended up in ... Mexico.

    A similar Hungarian priest was persecuted by Securitate in Timisoara. They decided to evict him forcibly, and his congregation blocked the door. They were soon joined by pro-democracy students. The Securitate opened fire, and the unrest spread. Two weeks later, the Ceausescus were put against the wall of a schoolhouse in Targoviste and shot.

    I never gave a whoop in hell about Nixon one way or the other. However, when he left office without pardoning Haldeman, Ehrlichman & Mitchell, I decided Nixon wasn't much of a man.

    347 I'm from the Fargo, ND area and you can pretty much shoot anywhere outside of city limits. It is flat as f### up here, you can see you dog run away for two days. Thankfully, gravity prevents the bullets from flying to Montana. It got so cold up here last year propane stopped vaporizing so a lot of people didn't have heat at 40 below. I suggest buying some long johns, a new car battery, good boots and an ice scraper. Oh, by the way, if you notice the wind stopped blowing it means you're dead.

    It's funny - once upon a time, part of my job was to go to Medical Staff department and committee meetings and take minutes. I wasn't a medical person but it didn't take long to notice the differences between the different medical specialties.

    The Family Practitioners and Internists and Pediatricians were the nicest but had a tendency to talk alot about problems without making final decisions. (On the minutes, the issue was usually "open" and carried over to the next meeting - for months.)

    The shrinks were the worst for beating around the bush and never seeming to solve anything.

    The surgeons were very blunt and direct, didn't waste time, "OK, that's solved, let's move on." Same with cardiologists.

    But I was also in charge of setting up the computers for Powerpoint presentations and stuff and if something went haywire (which usually was a matter of not plugging some cord in correctly), you DID want it to happen in a surgery meeting. They were not forgiving.

    Well, this morning I had to bribe the local Humane Society to spay my pup.

    Next I had to bribe Home Depot to give me some lumber to repair my deck.

    Then I bribed Costco into giving me a bunch of toilet paper, a big bag of roasted unsalted peanuts, two dozen eggs, a couple of big tins of Italian cookies, and a hot dog and Pepsi.

    Then I had to make a little quid pro quo arrangement with a Costco gas pump to juice up my car.

    I went to pick up my pup. Turns out that while they had her open, they discovered she had an umbilical hernia so I had to bribe them another $60 when I picked her up.

    Finally, I bribed some Mexican into giving me an al pastor super burrito, ultimate nachos, and a flautas plata.

    We've been pushing really hard the last couple weeks. We've been working really hard on it, crazy hours. We met our contractual obligations, but it turns out that we need to put in some extra hours... And this fucking bully intimidated me into working even MOAR HOURS, just so he'd look good.

    I'ma sue his evil ass in the HoR, and believe you me, I'ma turn on the waterworks when I do.

    I mean - it's obvious.

    He was trying to bribe me. If I continued on not doing a job, but collecting a paycheck for it, I'd have been fine. But this unscrupulous sonofabitch demanded labor for money.

    I'm on the payroll. I should receive pay for 80hrs, because I need to spend 40hrs charging retro videogames and organic sandwiches to the company card. Anything short of that isn't just bribery - it's extortion.

    488 The right 40-50 acres and you'll be fine for a nice little range.

    With a hill for backstop, you could get a hundred-yard range in on three acres, provided the adjoining land was not also 3-acre plots with homes on them.

    My place here is 3 acres, but it lacks any natural backstop. Does not stop me from shooting at gophers, though, because ground.

She'd been a tremendous expense, but he averaged the emotional chasm she had filled in his life against the steep initial outlay, and considered her years of plastic affection as a bargain at the price. Now, though, she had aged. Her rubberized skin, powdered for years to maintain smoothness, was brittle and gave off an odd, alien shine. One eye, once polished bright so that it looked moist, was dull. A toe had been broken (bitten?) off. Still, he was not ready to part with her. Her name was Helene, and she made him whole...

    To die for him? I'll hope truly, that such is never required. Not that my life is all that more important than his, but I kinda LIKE it here, you know?

    That said, in defending him should I go down, I'll pray it's atop upon a mountain of spent brass and slain enemies.

    585 If you move to rural Rowan County, NC, you can fire your gun in your yard at any time, no matter what time it is or how close the neighbor's house is. In fact, you can fire it across the actively used road with occupied houses downrange, or over the golf course behind you property, as long as you don't cause property damage. But I believe you are required to have no less than five non-functional vehicles and a steady stream of tweekers visiting you, based on what I've seen.

    Also tends to be true of radiologists.
    Been working with radiologists for 30 years now. It's improved in that they rarely throw things at techs anymore, and the HR departments and lawyers have shut down some the other shenanigans with you female techs. Now it's pretty much how much can you put up with a complete lack of awareness that the universe doesn't revolve around them.

    Donors to Andy Ngo's Medical Fund Doxxed by Antifa

    But don't name the whistleblower!

    In response to the doxxing, Ngo had this to say on his Twitter:

    "Last night an antifa account decided to go after those who donated to my GoFundMe when I was hospitalized in June by releasing their photos & personal info. This is depraved & a new low, even for antifa. I have reported this to Twitter and GoFundMe," said Ngo.

    "If you want to go after someone, go after me. Leave those around meómy family, my supporters--the hell alone."

    We'll see how seriously the left (and their NeverTrump allies) take this talking point about not "endangering" the whistleblower by how stridently they condemn this clear case of deliberate intimidation of citizens for merely donating to someone's medical fund.

    Spoiler alert: they won't even mention it. Because they're only about protecting Adam Schiff and their fake impeachment.

    They only want to protect Eric Ciaramella from questions they don't want asked. His answers would either badly expose the whole impeachment operation as planned from Schiff's offices, or he'd have to expose himself to perjury charges.

    Actually, our side needs to develop some type of false-flag disinformation ops/ratfucking organizations of hackers, normies, and whatever to employ tactics like that.


    I've had neighbors I thought about SWATting, but don't want to put myself in legal jeopardy just yet. But things like anonymously informing on enemies through "silent witness" programs (locally if you accuse someone of selling opioids like fentanyl, law enforcement will arrest and give them an anal exam -- and that seems unconstitutional and rife for abuse -- but their rules).

    Or mess with enemies by anonymously reporting their license plates as someone you just saw on the highway driving drunk.

    But "white hat" hackers on ours side for sure could do the most damage these days.

    @33 Forget Barr; the FBI are still compromised. But Trump should mobilize the Oregon National Guard and send them into Portland, where they can start by arresting the Antifa mayor and rescinding his stand-down order. Trump also should pardon the two Proud Boys who were convicted for defending themselves.

    Many paradigms are shifting. Trump has been called the black swan but hes even more than that. He has awakened the middle class who have slept walked to work and who "haven't had the time to pay attention to that" WRT politcal scandals. What is going on is completely obvious to see, and it certainly isn't going over well with said middle class.
    I believe whole heartedly, that once "the day" arrives that the middle class spits on their hands, hoists black flags and begins slitting throats with prejudice, the left will realize it is too late.

    Probably just a tease from a regional public affairs type who forgot that the wave of rebellion against rule of law in immigration is *not* to be directly confronted or in any way punished, limited, or discouraged. I mean, it's not like a state official refused to issue a license for some imaginary court-created version of "marriage", or a legit crisis like that.
