Meet the PetMorons

Hi Mis H!

I’m a lurker, but a regular reader, and particularly enjoy the pet, food, and gardening threads. This is Yasha and Bear, two standard American Eskimo dogs, brother and sister. They’re twelve now. Eskies were bred from German Spitz dogs (Pomeranians were also German Spitz, but bred down in size) and one breeder, around the 1900s, bred white ones for the circus. White dogs, white ponies, the origin of “dog and pony show”. After WWI, it was unpopular to be “German” anything, so the white line was named after that breeder’s kennel, and they became American Eskimos (and never set foot in Alaska!) They’re bright, love to do tricks, and shed hair like crazy.

Thank you for an enjoyable thread!

Joanie

Great looking dogs Joanie. And thanks for the history lesson. Know we know where that old saying came from.

I'm a long time lurker and never poster. I just want to drop you a photo of one of our cats. She is 15 now and starting to suffer from health problems that may be terminal. It was sudden and I had promised myself sometime back that I would send a photo in while she was still with us. Here she is doing what she does best, sleeping on my lap. Love the pet thread. Love the website, my all time favorite hands down.

Thanks,
Nick

Nick, thanks for coming out of the lurker shadows and sharing your cat's photo with us. Hopefully her condition is improving.

Daily Lurker Kathy here. This is our Beautiful Missy (bichon) and our puppy Frankie (yorkie-poodle). Our Missy was getting older, and with the Boy going off to college in the fall, thought we'd get her a companion. So Frankie came along by chance. Well Missy, at 12, was not very amused at his puppiness, but when we came home at the end of the day, she would be curled up next to his crate. We jokingly called Frankie the Insurance Dog, since Missy was getting on in years. Well, this picture was at Easter, and by September, Our Beautiful Missy was gone, thyroid cancer. Frankie is now 8, and we love him dearly, but he's like a dopey little boy compared to our Princess. While Missy loved my husband best, Frankie adores me most, which was very helpful to me in dealing with the empty nest. A home must be very lonely without a Dog to come home to.

Kathy, a lovely photo of the puppehs. Sorry you have lost Missy but happy to know you have her companion Frankie to keep company. A home without a dog is pretty damn quiet.

My Archie, also known as The Dude in the Cheap Orange Coat, is a big believer in catch and release. He catches outside and releases, completely unharmed, inside. Mostly chipmunks. But once a bat. And this time of year he’s quite fond of finding water roaches. He likes the way they perk up and start running when he brings them in and they warm up a little. DeAnn

Quite the interesting cat you have there. A chipmunk in the house must be a challenge. Thanks for sending in Archie's photo.

Dany1_21_18.jpg

Been a lurker since ’06, always the highlights of my day. This is Daenerys (Targaryen) my new Golden Retriever at 8 weeks exploring her forever house.
The little girl is filling the pawprints left by my previous golden Marilyn (Monroe) who left us at age 3 from spindle-cell cancer. Little Dany follows daddy everywhere and is well on her way to being my second love. The love of a golden,I truly believe, is unmatched. All the best to the other pet morons out there. - Joe

Sorry to hear that you had to get this cute puppy by losing a young dog Joe. Loosing a pet sucks, especially a young one. Dany looks like she will give you a run for your money. Thank you for submitting her photo.

Koushka Lord of the Kindles.jpg


Our cat Koushka likes to claim new things around the house. So when my husband
re-flashed a bunch of demo Kindles into working Kindles for Christmas
presents, and set them in a stack to charge...Koushka decided they were the
new Pride Rock. Ever since then one of his nicknames has been Lord of the
Kindles. After all, no Christmas present is complete without cat hair.

- Safewrite

Hair on things? Wouldn't know anything about that. Thanks for the submission looks like Koushka has a difficult life there.

I recently made a video to guilt a friend of mine into allowing my magnificent, spoiled Basset "Barley Hound" into his house.

It worked-Jason


What kind of friend would need this video to allow that cutie into his house? You and Barley Hound are invited to stop by anytime you want. Thanks for sharing this video.

Another week, another wonderful group of pets. Thank you so much for sharing them with us here at The Pet Thread.

Do you have a photo or a YouTube video of your pet you would like to share? You can reach us at petmorons at gmail dot com.

Have a great week!!

19 What a wonderful group of pets. The video is funny and touching and has that beautiful soundtrack. I had a basset many, many years ago, named Falstaff. Couldn't keep hin when I moved but found a loving home for him with a family that had just lost their basset to old age. Falstaff was probably the best canine clown in history.

I would dress up our cat in baby clothes (even a bonnet!) and wheel her around in a buggy. Mama Cat would put up with it for a while and then say enough! and escape trailing bonnet and capelet.

I have never met another cat that would allow itself to be dressed up in little outfits.

29 Son called and said I will have granddog until he leaves after Monday's funeral services. Neighborhood young man died suddenly (autopsy showed no drugs, thank goodness), so it looks like the old gang is together again.

I am still trying to write down the funny stories about the kid, but not having much luck. Too sad, I guess.

42 As a matter of fact, the only time in my many years that a dog bite was serious was a friend who stuck her arm between a Basset Hound and a Standard Poodle when they were arguing/fighting.

mustbequantum, when a friend of mine died suddenly and I was asked to speak at a memorial service, a friend told me to think of the people who would be there who had NOT known my friend so well, and that this was the chance to let them know about her.
Maybe that will help.

Dad took me to a movie in the afternoon. He never did that. I should of known something was up.

Jesus Christ

The Holy Spirit

Scriptures

The apostles

The saints-both named and named

Creation-The beauty of nature, animals

People who care about me and pray for me


I'll post it again, Insomniac, even though this is the pet thread

How to pray when you're pissed at God or anyone else:

And if you've really contemplating taking your own life sometimes, which you're mentioned several times in previous threads, I suggest you get help NOW, and if you don't you'll much screw up the life of your children for years to come

BTW

Or you could look at "Healing your inner child" for some resources online.

54 Okay, guess I'll see if I can do this. Been putting it off for... five weeks now? I haven't even been able to look at the Pet Threads meanwhile, because I know it will hurt, because I have to write this.

Our gray cat Spark went out that Saturday night, just like every night of his life. Charlie went out, Spark went out behind him - I almost closed the door on the end of Spark's tail. That was the last Spark was seen.

You may remember me talking about the time we decided, on impulse, to take the long back way home, even though (or maybe because) it was late at night with tired kids. As we turned off the back highway, we saw a cardboard box on its side with two tiny gray kittens sitting on the grass, blinking bewideredly. They can't have been there very long. We stopped, scooped them up, and brought them home. To an already-large collection of critters.

Sixteen years ago. The male we named Spark and his sister we named Spirit.

Spark always got along with everybody. He was close to daughter's basset "Buddy," and became kind of a dog himself. He slept on dog Gimli's bed whereas all the other cats wanted to sleep on our bed. Sometimes Spark would be smack in the middle of Gimli's bed, and the doggie would sit there looking all bewildered. We'd move the cat so the dog could jump up (big bed, plenty of room for everybody).

Spark did not shy away from things as other cats do. He'd just turn his head and watch half-interestedly when the vacuum cleaner was roaring nearby.

Often, cats beg for their food and then sniff at it and turn away. Spark was always there on time for meals, and ate it all without complaint. Even when we bought the pate style by mistake instead of the shreads.

If Spark had a fault, it was that when you picked him up, the claws came out - not to fight, but to cling. It was good to have on thick shirts or denim coat or something. But he was so nice, such a good boy, and loved hugs and pets.

He was so dependable that when he didn't show up by the next morning, I had already lost all hope, but that didn't stop me from standing out in the yard calling for him, while cussing at begging the Almighty to send him home.

Much more to say, but not now. I'll just add, with the loss of Gimli we are without a dog for the first time in maybe twenty years, and now we are down to three cats - not counting the in-town fellow. This is the fewest pets we've had at home since the first two barn-cat litters in 1995.

Feeling the years.

58 A fun, cautionary tale.

Once upon a time, I had a guy that I worked with (union president, commie liberal) who was interested in me. I was NOT interested in him, but tolerated him. For the record, at the time he was in his early 50's. So... not a kid.

He had two Eskies. One fateful afternoon, he told me the story, in detail, of how you express the anal glands of a dog.

Note to all single morons: there is no world in which a female wants to hear about how to express the anal glands of a dog. Unless she asks you first.

69 Feral cats are a huge problem in lots of places. My Karen took in eight of them plus one store bought cat. She tamed them, kept up all the vaccinations and never let them outside. In a 500 sq ft house. Plus me. I was not allowed consideration for a relationship until the cats okayed me. It was a zoo. All gone now and I haven't the heart to try again.

Weasel, from the last thread, be careful with blackberries. In western WA they'll take over a property if not kept under control. Goats will work but you're best off if you have a rent a goat guy for that. Those critters are incredible escape artists.

Learn to like yourself.

I don't know your gender, but especially men, when older and frowning, can be downright scary looking.

Someone showed me a picture they took of me when I wasn't prepared for it, I was frowning and looking downward. It changed my life. From then on, I was determined to smile more often, don't look downward in a dejected way. Comb the hair. Shave. Smell nice. Remember names of the people you meet. (That one is really difficult) Today I think I can name 2500 or so people I know, and their wives and children. It takes work.

144 Remember names of the people you meet. (That one is really difficult)


I have a couple of workarounds for that.

One is to assume that the other person is as bad with names as I am, or to pretend that assumption in a disarming way. So, "I know we've met. My name is Mike".

(That should be enough of a clue for someone to say, "of course, Mike, I'm Susan". But if Susan doesn't get it she won't repeat her own name).

The other is the flat out "I'm sorry, I'm really bad at names. I'm Mike, you are...?"

For unexplained reasons I'm OK with the names of really good looking girls.

Has anyone determined why a cat is compelled to lie down on whatever you emplace?

Guess it depends on the cat. My current Cat does that. My previous cats chewed like puppies on my stuff. Of course, I got snuffly a while ago when I found some books with chewed corners from the past cat.

148 Weasel, from the last thread, be careful with blackberries. In western WA they'll take over a property if not kept under control. Goats will work but you're best off if you have a rent a goat guy for that. Those critters are incredible escape artists.

Nothing worse than someone coming up to me and asking "Don't you remember me?"
I had a guy come up to me and ask me that, recently. I hadn't seen him in 35 years. I named him, asked about his wife (she passed) and asked him if he still lived in (x).

150 I second Grammie's recommendation. Dog parks are wonderful for socializing without pressure. We moved to a new state after living in the old one for 35 years. First thing I did was look for the dog park. I'm not really outgoing, but have run into the nicest people, no cranks. It's not just dog owners. There's a lovely older couple who come for their daily walk there, just to be around dogs as they can't have one in their condo. People love their dogs and will talk to anyone who likes them. When you've had enough, you just leave.

Saturday Gardening Thread: Looking Forward, Looking Back [KT]

"Maintaining heritage is a good thing" - Illiniwek

Planting corn, horses must have liked this better than plowing.

Hello, Gardeners and Friends of Gardeners. A while back, Illiniwek had a good idea: Why not, during the gardening off-season, reflect a little on the farm and garden developments that got us to where we are today? He has sent in some heritage photos of the garden, yard, structures and farm of his family from years gone by. Do you have any photos like that? Sent some in for next week.

This is also the time of year in much of the country where gardening involves work in hopes of future rewards. The RHS suggested garden activities for February are heavy on work, light on immediate rewards.

Our photos today from The Horde show a few rewards, but also reflect work.

Cumberland Astro sends the following:

Here are a couple of pictures I took in the past week at my bird feeder (black oil sunflower seed.) One picture is of a Red Bellied Woodpecker and the other is of Bluebirds. Both are very common in the woods behind my house, but I had never before seen them at the feeder.

IMG_3681.jpg

The first half of winter here on Tennessee's Cumberland Plateau was brutally cold, with the temperature often in single digits, and extended periods of below-freezing temperatures. I'm guessing that bugs and other preferred foods are pretty scarce, so these guys are now having to hang out with the seed feeders to get a good meal.

IMG_3679.jpg

Nice to get a little action at the feeders when you invite birds. Any new bird signtings in your yard or neighborhood?

A reminder that sunflower seeds inhibit the growth of some plants. Don't put a feeder by precious, delicate garden plants.

Sherpa_K2 has some Winter Bamboo that looks full grown

bam82.jpg

and a lot of plants emerging. Here are a few:

Artichoke. Looks kind weedy when young, I think. Impressive plant when larger.

bam2.jpg

Bluebells. I'm guessing that you would have to know where you planted these to know what they were.

bam41.jpg

Bearded Iris. Can't wait to see these in bloom.

bam42.jpg

Gardens of The Horde

We didn't have much in the way of cold weather here in the San Joaquin Valley during the fall and early winter, but we are getting some hard frosts now. Kind of late for that around here. Has to be Global Warming.

Flowers near the house seem to be OK. I'll have to check the fruit trees in a few days.

Anything going on in your garden, yard or outdoor nieghborhood?

If you would like to send information and/or photos for the Saturday Gardening Thread, the address is:

ktinthegarden
at g mail dot com

Include your nic unless you want to be a lurker.

Got any strawberry questions or experiences? Favorite varieties? Non-standard types?

9 Some years ago, I bought a little pot that came
with strawberry seeds for $1.00 at Target. The strawberries were tiny,
but delicious. I divided repotted the plants every year and they
kept producing berries. We'd eat them by the
handful like candy. I don't know the variety, but they were incredibly
sweet. Not a bad return on my investment!

Was sitting on the back porch of Casa Backwardio one morning last week drinking a cup of coffee (my morning constitutional, as it were).

Woodpeckers are common and the ones I usually see are pretty noisy. Occasionally, I'll see a red-headed one since they're pretty big (about the size of a crow) and easy to spot. That morning I saw a whole red-headed woodpecker family out for breakfast in two trees; Papa, Momma and Baby.

That was pretty kewl.

Yup. They're fine. But you expect a certain size in your mind and what ships is a very small percentage of what you imagine. Picture 'butterfly bush' and when it arrives it's maybe six inches long.

Same thing with trees. Tiny. Maybe a foot long. If you're only 29 years old you have plenty of time.

59 slugs like the cilantro

Posted by: quint at February 24, 2018 01:40 PM (n13/j)

60 I mentioned last week that the chives were coming around. Well, they are officially back (I am the official). They look really good and some will be used on potatoes tomorrow. Also, the pansies and thyme are showing green under the dead stuff from last year. The lilac is full of buds and some leaves are starting to open. I have hopes for a fragrant spring this year.

We had an unusually cold winter but little snow, almost drought conditions. I'm surprised anything made it through the winter.

But I did get a useful pamphlet on xeriscaping from them.

63 Greetings from zone 7a. Chives are flourishing. Pansy shoots have appeared. The lilacs are covered in buds with some leafing. The rosemary that we thought was dead is now covered with what might be tiny buds.

64 My great grandfather had a pretty big farm down in N.C., and my father and uncles went down there in the summers to help with crops.
Later in life, my father told me one of his regrets was that he didn't take his grandfather up on the offer to take over the farm. Seems like all the children and grandchildren left the farm for jobs in town in the shipyard or went to sea!

70 I don't have any photos but enjoy history for the colonial and early American periods, especially on the frontier. And gardening practices are definitely part of that. It isn't just old wives tales and phases of the moon. Did the pioneers have seeds or plants? How did they work the soil? What did they learn from local tribes? What did they grow for fresh eating and for preservation? How did they preserve their crops? It is fun discovering the answers.

71 Anyone have any experience with boysenberries? We had a patch of them when I was a kid and I always liked them. I think they are a cross between a blackberry and a loganberry. They look like extra large blackberries. I've never tried to grow them and I never seem to see them mentioned anywhere.

73 Well, the robins came the other day. Hundreds, maybe thousands of them. Like a swarm of locusts, they stripped my holly of the gazillion berries it had within an hour or two.

I'm told that when the robins first migrate north again, there are slim pickins in the way of insects, so they go after whatever is available.

Posted by: Hrothgar

yeah, I came back and bought part of the old farm and did elder care for my Mom and a few uncles, but in hindsight skipping college and farming with an uncle that basically made the offer would have been pretty awesome.

Now the concern is all the funny money trillionaires will push people off their land, and move in foreigners as laborers. Talk of selling off public lands sound reasonable, but then I wonder if it wouldn't just be globalists and maybe China buying it all up off their fake money profits. For now "working the land" is still mostly hard work, but kids tend to move to the big city lights.

116 Mother Nature did indeed have a sucker-punch ready for Idaho's Treasure Valley (Boise area)... I've made a note on my gardening calendar, not to be fooled by early Feb. thaws, ever again! (I have an old calendar that I write garden notes on - things like when to fertilize strawberries, and when to expect bulb sprouts, that sort of stuff.)

The sucker-punch arrived in the form of some small hail last Sunday at dusk - a low of +6 F between Monday and Tuesday - the inch of snow I found outside on Thursday morning - and the snow that started falling this morning (1 to 3 inches predicted).

Birds - of course I'm keeping the seed feeder stocked while Winter remains. I've seen the flicker there several times; I'll have to download my camera and see if the photos came out, from the one time I managed to get a camera on him. Today, I think I've identified a male House Finch - and there are apparently multiple types of streaked sparrows, so I haven't ID'd the species, but I see those often - it's possible some of the birds with neat wing bars and some yellow to them are vireos, but I'm not sure - the Dark-Eyed Juncoes (Oregon type) tend to stay on the ground with the Mourning Doves.

We've continued to hear the Great Horned Owl at dusk, which has surprised me. These must be territorial calls, since they normally mate by the end of the year and should have chicks by now (if I remember rightly).

Our California Quail will probably not come around as often, now that the quail block is gone. We'll probably still see them from time to time - they like using the red raspberry patch as cover.

Bulbs - the first snow did blow in close to the back of my house and covered the hyacinths, but it melted off and they took no damage. They're close enough to the back of the house that I'm pretty sure they'll be OK even if more snow hits there. The bulbs out front, and the other bulbs in back, weren't that far sprouted, so they should be OK too.

My poor strawberries, though....... I'm still worried that I've killed them by uncovering them during our 60 degree weather. Nothing to be done now, but see what happens when spring does come. Husband reassures me that we can buy more locally, but that's still money that didn't need to be spent. Live and learn... That's really all of gardening/farming, isn't it? - live and learn.

Oh, my own experience with buying plants from a national catalog. We bought bare-root strawberries from Park. They sent them in March. We thought they knew what they were doing, so we planted them. They froze and died. (We replaced them from what Home Depot sells.) So I would suggest only buying from a national catalog that is based in a similar climate to where you live.

117 On the woodpeckers at the seed feeder front, all fall and winter we had small, medium, and large birds: a downy, a ladderback, and a golden-fronted.

After years of condo living with only container gardening, we are finishing our first year of having an actual yard and garden. Thanks to the gardening thread for all of the inspiration and ideas. We'll see how well our off season maintenance works out soon. (Forsythia, japonica, and early fruit trees are blooming here in central Texas.)

123 Strawberries are tough. They can handle a false spring. The reason that grocery strawberries dont taste like what you remember is that they are bred to look pretty and travel well. There is a variety that one vendor at our farmer's market has--just amazing flavor. They don't look good compared to the store bought, but even the ugly ones taste amazing.

Thread before the Gardening Thread: Musings on Migration from a Hungarian [KT]

Serving your mid-day open thread needs

howhungarian.jpg

How well do you know Hungarian

Earlier this month, a German human rights activist admitted that Muslim refugees have no intention of adopting our values. Said it out loud.

Writing in The Brussels Journal, George Handlery (a Hungarian educated in the USA, now living in Switzerland) weighs in on migration into Europe as a more general topic. The whole piece is worth reading, but here are a few highlights. Okay, so the English is slightly awkward sometimes. How is your Hungarian?:

Let us begin with the problem's origins and magnitude. From there we go to meeting this modern version of the "migration of peoples" that had toppled Greco-Roman civilization. This hesitantly made analogy is anathema in influential circles: They insist upon problem solving within their ideology's confines. Thus, the Old World is as helpless to cope, as was the Roman Empire before 476.

Opposition to migration is growing in Europe:

A recent example comes from Hungary. (Like her neighbors, in 500 years they have not managed to integrate their resistant Gypsies. Unless, of course, renaming them "Roma" passes as a solution.) After calling the EU as solid as "Swiss cheese", the government sent an inquiry to its citizens to discover what they want.

The preamble: "There are those according to whom, Brussels' policy on immigration and terrorism has failed and that this demands new approaches. Are you in agreement with the statements below? "

A shortened sample of some of the questions: "Would you support it if, contrary to Brussels' permissive policy, the government introduces more restrictive regulations?"

"Do you agree that after the least possible delay, illegal border crossers need to be repatriated?"

As a side note, a Gypsy family has been hanging out periodically at a McDonalds not far from us, begging, in the last couple of months. My mother had a Gypsy family living across the street from her a few years ago. Their habits were . . . distinctive. Have you ever met a Gypsy in America? Back to the final recommendation in Handlery's post:

There are some very simple ways of stopping this. Ship everyone straight back where they came from. No passport holder of ANY country that refuses to take back their citizens will be permitted to enter Europe for any reason.. That may well be too draconian for the delicate stomachs of our ruling elite, so go about it in a more gentle way. Since every country that sends these hordes also receives substantial aid from most EU countries continue with the aid but deduct the cost their illegal citizens occur, be that housing, welfare, health care or education, tote it all up and consider it aid. Those countries will be slamming shut their border so fast you'll be able to hear the slam in Europe..

Think that would work? Might it be adapted in some way to the USA?

Here's a famous, partially-assimilated European Gypsy, at least a fantasy Gypsy.

Django Reinhardt was a Gypsy. He seemed to assimilate pretty well.

Have a great weekend.

Now that Trump's flushing these so-called conservatives out of the brush,

I suspect that most of them like Bill Kristol were always liberals but didn't have the ability or mad skillz to make it in the Libtard Big Time MSM,

so they became Pet Conservatives for liberal outlets.

They could be ineffective and ineffectual mouthpieces for ineffective Republican/conservative initiatives and yet,

still attend all those dishy Washington/New York parties.

Trump blew up all that by actually wanting to do the right thing by Americans and the Middle Class.

44 My grandfather graduated NYU a very long time ago, and before he began his career as a teacher, traveled to Hungary and lived there for almost two years as a single man, to experience a different culture.

He'd had Latin in school and had learned German. In Hungary, he gained fluency in the language, and his Latin and German was no help at all, because Hungarian is derived from something else entirely.

Gramps was an avid photographer, and a chemist, so did all his own developing and printing. I have a box of his glass negatives from when he was in Europe. The scenes are quote pastoral.

He subscribed to two newspapers his whole life, one German, the other Hungarian, just to keep up with the languages.

52 My headmaster was Hungarian-a concert pianist. He was part of the 1956 revolution, and loathed Communists. Our school was a classical European preparatory school, and his influence in the evils of Communism was pervasive.

Sadly, after he retired, the Board brought in multi culti global types, and though the school is now in a ritzy neighborhood (during my time it wasn't) with bells and whistles for the bells and whistles, I don't think the education is as rock solid. They haven't had a National Merit Scholar in many years, and there were six in my graduating class. Anecdotal, but I think telling in the pedagogy.

It seems there is a very strong correlation with Conservative values, and areas that have diseases being imported from outside the area.

That strong borders, and defending your own culture becomes dominant thoughts when that outsider, could literally kill you just from his presence.

Note, Diseases that we had wiped out in the US, are back... we are committing cultural suicide by NOT defending our own culture... and celebrating the very reason everyone wants to come here in the first place.

65 @15 One point to consider, Western Europeans have never managed to form a unified, multi-ethnic authoritarian state.
--------------------

Arguably, the Roman Empire was this. The Romans would conquer another group of people, and then the members of the newly conquered group would have the opportunity to become Roman citizens.

Where it all started to fall apart was when the barbarians started letting themselves across the border, invariably cut a deal that involved themselves becoming nominal Roman subjects, and then didn't integrate (which was fine with the Romans at the time, since they saw the barbarians as buffers against the other nomadic groups - particularly that one led by some guy named Attila...).

Since then?

No.

And I would argue that Islam has also not had a successful multi-ethnic empire. Yes, they've had empires that ruled over multiple ethnicities. But so did the Austrians. Adherents of Islam - at least in the Middle East - appear to be very conscious of the ethnicity of others, particularly if the one being conscious is Arab.

91 Django Reinhardt nearly lost his life when the caravan he and his wife lived in caught fire when he knocked over a candle on his way to bed. His wife made artificial flowers from extremely flammable celluloid. They caught fire, engulfing the wagon in flames almost immediately. Reinhardt dragged himself and his wife through the fire to safety, but suffered extensive burns on his left hand and other areas. He received first- and second-degree burns over half his body. His right leg was paralyzed, and the fourth and fifth fingers of his left hand were badly burned. Doctors believed that he would never play guitar again, and they intended to amputate one of his legs. Reinhardt refused to have the surgery and left the hospital after a short time; he was able to walk within a year with the aid of a cane.

Two of his fingers remained paralyzed. By sheer will, he taught himself to overcome his now permanent handicap by using only his thumb and two fingers.

You can still see vestigial remnants of the Soviet influence there, I'm glad they leave them standing so you may witness what a pathetic, vacant ideology the whole thing is.
-----------------------

I've got two board games that deal with the struggle against Communism in Eastern Europe. The first is called '1989' (it's a sort of sequel to Twilight Struggle, if anyone here has played that game). It focuses on 1989, which is the year that the pro-Soviet governments collapsed in EVERY single one of the Eastern European nations (it was also the year of the Tianenmen Square demonstrations, which also get a nod). It's a two player game - democrats versus communists (the thing is that while the governments are going to fall, the replacement government might be dominated by the communists-in-all-but-name).

The other game is called "Days of Ire", and is about the 1956 Hungarian Uprising. I haven't played this one yet, but it's a game for up to four people - either a cooperative game, or a multiple Hungarian players versus Comrade Zhukov. Note, though, that the game ends with the historical agreement between the Hungarian demonstrators and the Soviets... that was then promptly broken just a few days later when the Soviets invaded.

Whereas Western and Chinese empires have managed to last for quite awhile in most cases. Alexander the Great being one that didn't, though the three successor states did survive for quite awhile.

95 Gypsy experience involves a group of gypsies that used to "shop" at the Christian bookstore managed by my husband. One of the gypsies became a Christian, so she talked her fellow gypsies into not shoplifting at the store.

They still shoplifted at another Christian bookstore in a nearby town, owned by the same family. They didn't like the manager there.

99 I don't know if these companies actually contribute to the NRA or just offer discounts of some sort to members.

It doesn't look like they actually contribute anything. They benefited from the association by attracting NRA members with the discount, and the NRA attracted members with being able to offer discounts as a benefit. I think it won't hurt the NRA at all to do away with all member discount programs. That's not what their core membership is about, and I think this demonstrates remarkably well why the NRA exists to begin with. The actions of these companies work pretty well as a de facto membership drive. Hell, I'm considering becoming a lifetime member just to spite the SJW teens.

Before I cruised the Danube, I had a mental picture of it as being somewhat placid. That couldn't be further from the truth. The Danube was a force of nature separating the Roman empire from the barbarians for centuries. Only a fool would a attempt a crossing.

125 'We Szekeleys have a right to be proud, for in our veins flows the blood of many brave races who fought as the lion fights, for lordship. Here, in the whirlpool of European races, the Ugric tribe bore down from Iceland and the fighting spirit which Thor and Wodin gave them, which their Berserkers displayed to such fell intent on the seaboards of Europe, ay, and of Asia and Africa too, till the peoples thought that the were-wolves themselves had come. Here, too, when they came, they fought the Huns, whose warlike fury had swept the earth like a living flame, till the dying peoples held that in their veins ran the blood of those old witches, who, expelled from Scythia had mated with the devils in the desert. Fools, fools! What devil or what witch was ever so great as Attila, whose blood is in these veins? Is it a wonder that we were a conquering race; that we were proud; that when the Magyar, the Lombard, the Avar, the Bulgar, or the Turk poured his thousands on our frontiers, we drove them back? Is it strange that when Arpad and his legions swept through the Hungarian fatherland, he found us here when he reached the frontier? And when the Hungarian flood swept eastward, the Szekeleys were claimed as kindred by the victorious Magyars, and to us for centuries was trusted the guarding of the frontier of Turkey-land; ay and more than that, endless duty of the frontier guard, for, as the Turks say, "water sleeps, and enemy is sleepless". Who more gladly than we throughout the Four Nations received the "bloody sword", or at its warlike call flocked quicker to the standard of the King? When was redeemed that great shame of my nation, the shame of Cassova, when the flags of the Wallach and the Magyar went down beneath the Crescent, who was it but one of my own race who as Voivode crossed the Danube and beat the Turk on his own ground? This was a Dracula indeed! Woe was it that his own unworthy brother, when he had fallen, sold his people to the Turk and brought the shame of slavery upon them! . . . Again, when, after the battle of Mohacs, we threw off the Hungarian yoke, we of the Dracula blood were amongst their leaders, for our spirit would not brook that we were not free. Ah, young sir, the Szekeleys - and the Dracula as their heart's blood, their brains and their swords - can boast a record that mushroom growths like the Hapsburgs and the Romanoffs can never reach. The warlike days are over. Blood is too precious a thing in these days of dishonourable peace; and the glories of the great races are as a tale that is told.'

It's supposedly Genghis, but that's been disproven. The "Genghis gene" is actually one of his ancestors:

Earlier waves of Turkic / Mongol attacks had already left lots of that DNA around Central Asia. When Temujin started #winning, the first peoples he conquered were peoples who were already his [distant] cousins. He recruited the survivors (easy enough if they're already relatives) and sent them off to do more conquering.

On the NRA topic - I don't know if these companies actually
contribute to the NRA or just offer discounts of some sort to members.
I'd agree that on a net cash basis, the NRA has probably not suffered
significantly (if at all) from these companies showing their corporate
asses. ----

Agreed, but the left is winning the perception game. Major American companies are tersely abandoning millions of Americans with impunity. The left is organized, we aren't, it is that simple. We are getting bulldozed.

155 Ethnic Hungarians are not Gypsies (there are a lot of Gypsies in Hungary, but they're considered a foreign people there, as they are elsewhere in Europe).

Romanians are not Gypsies either. The PC term for Gypsy is "Roma", which is a totally different thing from "Romanian".

Hungarians (Magyars) are descended from tribes from extreme Eastern Europe (the Ural Mountains region) that invaded what is now Hungary around the 9th to 10th Century.

Romanians are Slavs, like Russians or Poles. Where they differ is that Romania was conquered and thoroughly assimilated by Rome (hence the name) and accordingly they speak a Romance language related to Latin and Spanish rather than a Slavic language like their Slav neighbors. Genetically, though, they're Slavs.

The Romani (Gypsies) are descended from people who were kicked out of Northern India around 500 AD. Their closest genetic relatives are the "Untouchable" (Dalit) caste in India.

Actually fighting WWI caused the biggest setback in the British Empire. They lost a large portion of their male population and those that did return had become severely disenchanted with the class system then prevalent in GB. It also virtually bankrupted the British Empire.

177 I tend to apply Occams Razor a lot of the idiocy we see. Most of it can be blamed on stupidity and nativity, not evil conspiracies. But sometimes, like with immigration, evil conspiracy seem more likely than the easy explanation. It is almost reaching that point in the Parkland shooting. So many bad decisions/incompetence almost make it seem it was allowed to happen. (Security cameras with a 20 minute time delay? Is that even possible?) The MSM going into immediate hyper-drive attacking guns and NRA to new levels of hysteria and the obviously planned student crusade adds to the sense of suspicion. This reminds me a of the supposed Charlottesville KKK riots, which were a nothing-burger until promoted to a crises by the MSM and Dems.

178 " No passport holder of ANY country that refuses to take back their citizens will be permitted to enter Europe for any reason.. That may well be too draconian for the delicate stomachs of our ruling elite, so go about it in a more gentle way."

That would be a great solution, or one step in the right direction. But the EU bureaucrats are the draconian ones, and their "delicate" stomachs feast on destruction of the masses and their strong cultural identities.

The multi-culti diversity religion is a ruse ... they intend to break country heritage since they want all the EU under the (unelected bureaucratic) EU flag. The Eastern Bloc has enough history of Soviet dictators, so they are the ones most strongly rejecting Brussel's "refugee" quota demands.

Countries are their people and their heritage, but the corporate/banker conglomerates have printed enough funny money paper that they feel they own the world, which they may ... On fake Paper. They now move toward diaspora, moving the third world in, and rooting out traditional America via by PC mandates of diversity and race quotas.

Soros and the goons and political hacks have long been planning to bring us under their thumb. Americanism will unite us again.

Europe was peaceful after WW2 since the countries mostly had their sovereign identities and borders. Japan is praised for their polite society, but they are all Japanese. Scandinavian countries were admired but also, 95% "demographically pure" till the recent destructive Muslim invasion. (watch Paul Joseph Watson videos to see how that is going)

The West Won, but has to regroup and cling to their regional religion(s) and guns and roses, not cling to false globalist propaganda. Flooding us with third world peoples is a subversive effort to destroy us, not make us stronger.

They might be part Slav, but they appear to also have a mix of other groups, such as the Dacians who lived in that region during the Roman Empire (and were partially conquered by Trajan).

207 From the comments it sounds like we are getting pummeled. Why be surprised?

There are many groups Obama organized during and after his Presidency.

Soros has his groups who will jump on any bandwagon that will help their cause.

Clinton's have their groups...more shady.

Then you have the left groups, who keep growing, like weeds.

You have the wealthy celebrities.

Then there are the true believers.


And the right has never organized and I guess we are not going to. Because even after a year of Trump, we still haven't. We have no mechanism to rally the troops and make calls. The left out-organizes us every time. Politics are downstream from culture. So until someone or some group decides to take the reins, this will continue.

I keep thinking the RNC or the conservative media will do so. Or blog owners. Or Steyn and TuCa & media types. Or some Pac. Or grassroots. Some group of leaders. But looks like no.

So I can't get my hair on fire every time. I don't have the resources or abilities to organize a group, so I do what I can individually, but it's not enough. Until we formally organize into groups, or a group, and fight back, expect these situations to continue.

Trump winning is not enough long term. He is erasing Obama's legacy, and someone can erases Trump's.

I'm not being Debbie Downer, I'm being realistic. And I'm resigning myself to facts, bcz I can't keep getting upset and disappointed. And I'm sick of banging the drum in posts about things that need doing. So just sayin...and JMO.

I view most nations as essentially extended families; people in Europe never ask (or never used to, at any rate) each other where they're from: they're from that country, since Adam first felt up Eve, and at some level they're probably all related to some extent.

The US is the exception, by virtue of being a nation of immigrants, the US is more like a club than a family, but the principle still obtains: a nation is a group of people united by language, custom, values, and in most cases, blood.

237 "They might be part Slav, but they appear to also have a mix of other groups, such as the Dacians who lived in that region during the Roman Empire "

Undoubtedly they do. There are few pure races in Europe, no matter what Hitler fantasized about. Hell, most Europeans still have Neanderthal blood in them.

Genetically, Romanians are closely related to Serbs, Croats, and Bulgarians, so if you consider those to be Slavs, Romanians probably should fall in that category as well.

On the other hand, these are Europeans we're talking about. The Serbs and Croats are essentially genetically identical, but may get violent if you try to point that out. Serbs are Orthodox and use Cyrillic, while Croats are Catholic and use the Latin alphabet. Totally different people. Obviously. Even though they look exactly the same and live a virtually identical lifestyle. :-)

In the French hotel kitchens, if you were a temp hire they had to pay you a full days wage if you worked the first 4 or so hours for the day. The Magyar, as Orwell called him, worked the first 4 hours then became unruly to the point of having to be fired upon which he got the full 10 hour days pay. He told Orwell it was a scam he worked until he ran out of hotels to work for.

Another aspect is that while the Left is persistent, it is also brittle. Look at how they lost their shit over the Tea Party, and were so insecure that they began the pathetic "Coffee Party" ("See, we have a 'grassroots' movement too." Not.)

Or how, stung by Rush Limbaugh & Co. they started the execrable (and ill-fated) "Air America" to compete.

Or at any demonstration, they'll list 25 nonexistent organizations - ginned up for this one purpose - as supporting them, each consisting of some permutation and combination of a handful of leftists.

They fight the fight where it must be fought, in the mostly collapsed judiciary. They join/lead lawsuits on key issues before state and federal courts.


Justice Thomas the other day said the 2nd is "a disfavored right" before the current SCOTUS. Decorum and all, I'm sure, but this kind of under-statement drives me crazy. I prefer the much more accurate language of Roberts (spit), back before he went off the rails, in his stunned dissent in Hamdan v. Bush (military tribunals) - where he said the court's behavior "threatened the very constitutional system" (quoting from memory).


Can't find expert court-watcher comment on this specific matter, but seems to me that since the 4th's decision on the MD gun law, the inferior courts are in open revolt, and have effectively "over-turned" Heller from below - for now.


So far - and in far wimpier a fashion than I actually expected - SCOTUS has appeared to finally draw the line at *some* of the lawlessness, in their small-ball smack-downs of the 9th on the EO cases. If SCOTUS doesn't move dramatically to restore the law - and even their OWN system wherein they rule the roost - there's really no limit on the damage.

262 Re: Travelers, that's a name for Irish or Scottish migrant peoples. The older name is "Tinkers," because a lot of them were traveling tinkers or followed other itinerant trades. They started traveling in larger groups after a lot of tenant farmers got thrown off their land in the 1700's and 1800's, and they used to have their own Gaelic dialects.

The Roma have been talked about above. There are four main tribes in the US and UK, but there are more tribes in Europe.

The thing to understand about them is that they have an extensive religious and secular law code, much like kosher law or Indian caste law. But it only applies to Roma. Everybody else, including Roma who decide not to live according to their laws, is fair game. Non-Roma can never really become Roma, either.

Obviously not every Roma person is going to do bad stuff, and some Roma join non-Roma religions in all sincerity. Others are just too smart to mess with people for no reason. But inside the group, they are going to be taught to worry more about proper respect for the campfire than for a non-Roma.

Anyway, the general impression left by their laws and traditions is that everything in the world actually belongs to Roma, or was created for their use. So stealing from you is actually taking back what they have been allowing you to use.

Some non-Roma do manage to get along with Roma - usually by having an 18 Charisma, a high Dexterity, and a good sense of humor. Everybody else is out of luck.

Yes, but that supports my thesis. If they were more secure, more confident, they'd have just laughed off Rush Limbaugh.

But they didn't. They were stung into trying to emulate him, despite having all of the MSM on their side. That suggests that they are nervous and uncertain about their own support.

Posted by Weasel

Sort of like the poster "confused" by the GOA/NRA thing, we don't like to air the laundry in front of "civilians." I'll just say, to an outsider, you can't understand some of the things that get said about the NRA unless you have been around the NRA's internal politics for 40 years or so.

There is intense infighting between factions in NRA, and competitive event sponsorship has been on the out-slide for a long time. The political activists consider the competitive shooters to be pests. Inside the "fraternity," newer, showier, funner shoot-em-ups have been promoted at the expense of the traditional shooting sports. Camp Perry became a civil war, and all my sides lost. "My" nationals are now at two places in Indiana.

This goes back at least to the Neal Knox days, and it keeps getting worse. In USAS, the Olympic shooting division that the NRA disowned in the 90's (and, possibly, "with cause"), you'll find some fairly anti-gun characters. You haven't had a gun fight until you've talked with a Brit international shooter who thinks we are crazy for being able to drive armed to the range.

Meanwhile, the accomplices picked up armfuls of clothing and simply left the store. The screaming woman left also. This whirl of activity was over in a matter of moments.

That's why I refer to the "collapsed judiciary/constitutional system".


I don't think there's a bit of hyperbole in that formulation, and I'd dare the top constitutional scholars alive to debate the point.


Sure - in MOST areas, the courts are not arbitrary, off the rails, lawless, and chaotic. Areas that affect daily commerce. Imagine the sort of lawlessness and judicial rule we see in things like the 2A, marriage redefinition, or election integrity applied to contract law. The economy would shut down.


THEN - the 90% of the country that doesn't notice or care would suddenly get religion.


Closest we've come is the still-astonishing behavior of the court in not smacking down the looting of Chrysler bond-holders in the 2008 "crisis". I don't know how that turned out - but it was an appropriate introductory flourish for the lawlessness of the Obama years, and a shocking thing that - if extended and continued, would literally derail our economy (no hyperbole).

Fun fact: the bondholder who got hosed the worst was the Michigan State Teachers' Pension Fund, a union that doubtless supported Obama.

You've got to laugh.

(As yet further proof of the left's lack of business/financial acumen (of a piece with "profit to earnings ratio") was their lack of sympathy for the lootees because they were hedge funds. Apparently they did not realize that hedge funds aren't investing their own money, but rather that of the limited partners (in this case, a union pension fund). Sure, it hurt the hedge fund a bit too, since they get only a percentage of the carry but also a fraction of the profits, but the people who really got hosed were the limited partners.

Google managed to spread its wings, but I'm not sure it or some of the others are all that invincible. It seems they got support from the oligarchs by agreeing to go fascist, including (in some cases at least) an agreement to go totalitarian against liberty and conservatives.

Part of it is spying for the CIA/NSA, but pushing certain search results to the front page is also BIG in controlling the public "narrative". That is why I really hate all the bailouts for billionaires and the guys like Corzine that never get prosecuted.

Not sure what there is to even see there, related to the battle. Need to research that. I have a gigantic European battlefield tour dreamt of/planned, but the Soviet ones are a bit of a quandary. Not much to actually visit.


Mass graves near St Petersburg, and the warning painted on the buildings on one side of Nyevsky Prospyekt ("During shelling this side of the street is safer") were the only WWII things I recall there.

332 @326 Not sure what there is to even see there, related to the battle. Need to research that. I have a gigantic European battlefield tour dreamt of/planned, but the Soviet ones are a bit of a quandary. Not much to actually visit.
-----------------------

I suspect that the big draw for a war history buff visiting Russia would be the tank museum at Kubinka. As for actual battlefields? Dunno. But I suspect that if you asked in the right places (I do know of one - the forums for Battlefront Miniatures get a lot of Russians who are fans of World War 2, but they're shutting down the 15th of next month) you'd get a list pretty quickly.

346 A few years ago we went to Fla to a family owned group of 4 cottages on the beach. We rented our favorite and arrived to find an odd "family" in the neighboring cottage. We went to the beach and they were there, the women fully clothed, the men in shorts and the children completely naked. It was weird. I went back to the cabin and they followed me. They began to pack up their car and load their things as it was check out time for them. One of the women came and knocked on my door. She said they had stayed in the cabin we were in and she left something on top of the cabinets. She wanted me to get on a stepstool and "search". I was very suspicious about that and then I heard a noise. The glass door behind me (which I had locked when I came in) rattled. I looked around and 2 young men of theirs were standing there trying to look unsuspicious. The woman kept asking me to check the top of the cabinet for her (I forgot what) all the while they were eyeing my purse sitting on the table beside the locked glass door. I told the woman to send the men away, she could come in, I would lock the door behind her and she could get on the stepstool and look for whatever. If she found/didnt find, I would unlock the door for her to leave. She wanted nothing to do with that and left. So did the young men at the back glass door. I was so shaken I called the owners who lived across the street. One of them came over and oversaw this group leaving. A few minutes later, the local police arrived and made a big show of following them off the island. The police came back and told the owner and us they would keep a close watch out for a few days in case that group came back. The police said they had reports from up and down the coast of gypsy family gangs staying in places and robbing other guests who were careless about securing their apts/condos/cottages, cars, etc. They didnt come back but that scared the dickens out of me. My Mother in Law was robbed at a train station in Hungary when she came to Europe to visit us and take a tour by gypsy gang--stay far, far away, not a good people in my experience

350 There's a reason English has so many words.

"The problem with defending the purity of the English language is that English is about as pure as a cribhouse whore. We don't just borrow words; on occasion, English has pursued other languages down alleyways to beat them unconscious and rifle their pockets for new vocabulary."

Because we did it to get Noriega... we now say that if you break US Law, even if you are in another country, we can come get you...

----------------------

There's already been some pushback against this sort of thing here in the US. I don't know if you remember libel tourism. The way it worked was that a book would get published in the US that was accurate, but critical of a group (usually Islam). The book would be sold in Great Britain. Someone in Great Britain would then sue for libel in British courts, where truth is not an absolute defense. The British court would then reward a judgement against the book's author.

Fortunately, Congress passed a law several years ago that made such judgements unenforceable in the US.

I'll repost for Jane D'oh

Our church has a medical team in Guatemala right now that, along with other churches, is serving over 2,000 people with medical/dental needs in remote villages. One of the volunteers said it's stunning to see 2,000 people line up peacefully and wait patiently for hours or days to be seen for needed treatments. Our team consists of everything from our pastor, to a married couple who buy and prepare food for our team, an interpreter, and medical pros. They've been doing this for years.

My husband says that when/if he ever sells his business and retires, he'd love to go as an interpreter. I'd love to volunteer with meals.

They do have to have security. It's a dicey area.


God bless these volunteers.

26 We had a board meeting in Athens Thursday night, and the venue where we had the dinner meeting was weird.

We got there and the two staffers were very glum-faced. The small buffet was pretty awful, too.

It turned out the manager of the venue, a man in his 40's, had died suddenly and his funeral was that day(!!) We ate quietly, thanked the two staffers whole-heartedly, and left without holding a meeting. Someone said the man died of the flu. Awful.

My husband attended a breakfast meeting yesterday, and we drove out to a work site. Watched my husband and other guys walk around in the mud and grass and take pictures of the mud, grass and trees.

Spending the rest of the weekend at my MiL's and her sister's retirement village. I can't even. Last night we ate in the assisted living dining room. My MiL and her sister picked at their food and argued from 5:30 until after 7:00. I wanted to kill myself.

Told her that if Democrats don't want me to have one, we should have one. Her reaction was, "Why didn't you buy one already?" and told her that I hadn't felt the need until now. She thinks it is a good idea, herself.

Yup....in Floriduh, the County Sheriff's is only one step below the Governor in the Chain of Command. The County Councils do his budget and advise on yes or no for certain budget items, but the Sheriff works for the voters and the Governor.

Goes back to when there were not many towns/cities yet incorporated in the state, whereby the Sheriff was the only law enforcement.

Nowadays, it is the opposite. Most towns and cities in Florida have popo outfits so no real need for Sheriffs, but then back in the 80s they got smart and contracted with towns and cities to be their popo departments.

Broward County Sheriff's Office serves the county and several small towns that they suckered into providing "lower" cost popo service to for a fee. Of course once they suckered them in, it's hard to get out of the deal.

They are no different than the mob who are always on the look out for paying customers. The Schools also pay fees to the Sheriff to provide their SROs.

It's a racket.

Ruger "updated" the Mini sometime around 2000 (not sure on the exact time). Improved accuracy a bit. There's a website somewhere that breaks down the serial numbers.

Easiest way to tell is to look at the barrel. Its got a "taper" now.

Yup....Broward and Dade counties were basically built out to the everglades by the early 90's but the Sheriff's in both counties, seeing their county area shrink and shrink, began hiring themselves out to local jurisdictions instead of being downsized or eliminated completely.

Once a town or city became a client, the costs to overturn the protection racket deal was to onerous budget wise to overcome, at least in the short term as their local popo was "absorbed" into the Sheriff's mob.

Just like Goodfellas.

A proper military 1911 is supposed to rattle a bit.

The last Master Sergeant I worked for in the Army was old-school Special Forces. Spent a lot of his career on ops in Central and South America, including with the Contras and the Salvadorans during the bad times in the early 80s.

He told us a story about how EVERY soldier/fighter/guerrilla in Latin America wants a pistol. It's a cultural thing down there: Pistol = El Jefe. And for a lot of those men, the 1911 was their introduction to pistols.

So when he was training the Contras, they got a bunch of pistols from different sources and international arms dealers. Problem was, they were mostly tightly fitted modern pieces rather than the 1911s that the Contras wanted. They were miffed because they associated rattle with reliability. And that was more important than extreme accuracy.

So the piled the pistols on tables and the Contras would examine them one by one, shaking them like they were trying to strangle them. No rattle, they'd toss them back into the crate with a "no bueno".

When they got a maraca gun, they'd smile hugely "Ahhhhhhh, bueno!" And walk away with their new pistola.

173 Good morning all. One little factoid I heard, but did not confirm, was that Broward County Sheriff's Office is the largest in the US. Bigger is better and better able to hide the financial shennanigans. We taxpayers have been paying for this nonsense for years in our schools. Bigger 'consolidated' districts will save money! Bigger schools, more services, etc. Doesn't work that way because the weight of the bureaucracy drags everything down. I think Chicago Public Schools, just to name one, have more employees than students. We are the stupid suckers.

My guess ? Not much. That guy didn't make Lt. Col. by bucking the system.

Somebody said it yesterday - Bezerker maybe - that the enlisted guys he knew would call "bullshit" on any gun grab. I'll buy that. But I can see the Staff Officers thinking it's a great idea.

Somebody else said something I agree with as well. I think the Urban Police Departments would go for a gun grab. Small Town and Rural Police wouldn't. The guys where I live wouldn't.

222 "211 206 Is there a list of the companies who have dropped their association with the NRA?"

The NRA needs to have the stones to put this list out to every member and organize member-led boycotts of these companies. The NRA needs to launch a very strong counter attack, to let corps know that there is a price to be paid for their actions. A literal price.

The NRA also needs to have the stones to instantly fire anyone inside their organization that doesn't think this is absolutely necessary for their survival, and I'm guessing there's several.

Just like the Trump and the republicans, the first step in any war is to get rid of all the traitors inside your own ranks first.

Oh yeah, even in Texas the big cities are all dominated by the black-mexican-sjw caucus now. That's why they love to say "all big city police departments are in favor of (whatever SJW bullshit they're pushing at the moment)" That's why the Sherrif of Dallas from 2005 - 2017 was a lesbian mexican.

236 It sounds like there are no options left for rental cars. In my area, practically every auto dealership has an Enterprise next to it. I had one of their cars a couple of months ago when mine was in the shop.

(It was hit by a hot-dogging dumbass while it was parked at work. The guy went around a curve, lost control, and spun out. From the damage on his car, it was going nearly backwards when it hit mine. It was a sunny day and a dry road. You have to go out of your way to lose control under those conditions.

My car had $4000 worth of damage and was in the shop for three weeks. It was over the holidays, which no doubt added to the time required to repair it.)

Dremels run really, really fast. Some have speed controls to slow them down, though. But you don't want to use a fast drill speed for drilling brass, like a spent cartridge case. Much too easy for the drill bit to get snagged in the metal, and spin the case out of whatever is holding it. You could be hurt.
I'd recommend getting a small cordless drill, and a set of drill bits. Should run you less than the Dremel, too.

Posted by: DeploraBOT at February 24, 2018 09:56 AM (y3aQB)



*tinfoil hat ON!*

Look at Fast and Furious under Obama and Holder.

It was a giveaway of "assault weapons", etc to Mexican Drug Gangs with the hope that they would use those weapons to commit murder (of American citizens as well as Mexican) and thus bolster the call for gun control.

Is it so difficult to believe that the same people who thought that was a great idea, who conceived that idea and who financed that idea-

would encourage lunatic a-holes (or worse fund them, etc) to shoot up schools and/or outdoor events in red state or conservative areas to bolster the call for gun control?

Bonus Question: Explain the non-explanation of the Las Vegas murder spree.

Double Bonus Question: Is the rumor true or false that Soros made a huge killing with put orders on MGM stock right after the shooting?

*tinfoil hat OFF!*

Rumors are not facts, so I have no idea whether anything about that is true or not. And opinions are just opinions.

But Fast and Furious appears to have been a direct effort to create criminal action (murder) for political purposes.

With the Left, the ends always justify the means.

How many Obamites are still in powerful positions in the FBI?

How many eggs should be broken to get gun control?

Reminds me of this guy who came down from NY to out plant here in SC. One night he was griping about the local school programs and community activities available. I asked him what his property rtaxes were there. He said something like $7,000/year. and then i asked what his property taxes were here. I asked him what his property taxes were here, don't know I rent now he said. I told him mie were $500/year.

291 Here's the thing. I don't like it when people "jump the gun" on judgement. In any situation. Trayvon Martin for example.

So, I'm not going to pile onto the 3 additional deputies, because for all I know, they were following some sort of order. Maybe their training dictates a more talk-down resolution. Maybe they thought storming the building would escalate things and make things worse.

But the school resource officer....taxpayers are paying to have an officer on the premises of these schools for the safety of the students. It was his job to step in. It wasn't his job to assess the situation. It was his job to be a law enforcement presence on that campus.

So, I'm not going to call anyone a coward...not yet anyway, not without knowing all the facts. Not without hearing their side of the story.

But, I am glad the resource officer resigned....clearly he wasn't cut out for it.

There have been two birds down by dog walking lake.

We definitely have bald eagles around there.

360 Fun facts about the turkey vulture:

The turkey vulture has a 6-foot wingspan.

The birds spread their wings to warm their body and shake off bacteria. The vulture will actually defecate on its own leg to cool itself down.

Turkey vultures excrete a large amount of uric acid which acts a sanitizer. This kills bacteria the vulture picks up while feeding off carrion, or dead animal carcasses. Did you know they have a tolerance to certain poisons people use to kill coyotes and squirrels?

One primary form of defense for turkey vultures is to vomit, or cough up undigested meat. This usually occurs when the nest is being invaded. The foul smell defers predators from bothering their young.

About 15 years ago I was driving at about 50 on a rainy road, and two of them just walked right out in front of me. I swerved to avoid them and spun out into the median. Good thing it was a divided highway with a grassy median, or I would have gone straight into oncoming traffic.

I couldn't get underway again, but luckily a tow truck happened to be passing by at that moment and saw the whole thing.

A few minutes later the police arrived. I told the officer my story, and then the tow truck driver said, "Look!"

The two geese had crossed the median and were placidly walking across the other side of the highway.

This way the 5-6 major corporations that own 95% of all visual, print, and internet media can spoon feed the "facts and narrative" to the public while ignoring, erasing, and penalizing those who report these facts filling in the obvious plot holes.

On this day in 1917 The U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom was given the infamous Zimmermann Telegram, in which Germany pledged to ensure the return of New Mexico, Texas, and Arizona to Mexico if Mexico declared war on the United States. This provided an impetus for the US to enter WWI.

8 Fox gives a litany of missed chances that federal and local authorities of could stopped the FL school shooter. Yes, the only thing that the liberals want is more creeping gun control that leads to outright gun confiscation.


So what has happened to Broward County, FL? Over the past 50 years the steady influx of locusts has turned it from a Republican stronghold to a Democrat shit-hole with government much like this incompetent sheriff's department. This county went for Scankles by a wide margin even while FL as a whole went for Trump.

I find a lot of nutrition stuff on Amazon worth watching. Don't get me started on how bad food has become in this country. Like an ex-smoker kind of annoying once I get going.

The epidemic of obesity is not some coincidence. Nor is poor brain functioning due to lousy nutrition. There are 61 names for sugar on food labels, some you'd never recognize. Sometimes they'll use four or five different names so that 'sugar' doesn't appear as the number two ingredient. But if you add up the sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup, barley malt, dextrose, maltose and rice syrup, guess what? It's the number two ingredient. Almost half the product.

46 food ... a lot of chemicals were good in that they assured safe food. But so much sugar and perhaps other items to get people almost addicted is not so good.

The corporate world has become powerful and buys legislators and regulators that then might tend away from putting the consumer first.

But I still suspect overall the food is less the problem, and kids sitting at their computer or texting all day, instead of sports or work or hobby ... is a huge part of the problem.

And the rage and hate being pumped across media can't be healthy either. Then there are the legal and illegal drugs prescribed or easily available ... quite the toxic soup.

and could it all be part of the globalist plan to cause chaos and weaken the public, mentally and physically? That seems more and more likely by the day.

Sure sitting around all day is bad, but I saw a demonstration with a tiny little bag of sugar which is recommended daily allowance - or whatever it's called.

It takes a shitload of activity to burn through that many calories.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a free market kinda guy, and if that's what it takes for the seller to move their product and provide jobs, that's okay. But I'm not eating that stuff except extremely occasionally.

58 as with our FBI, it seems some of the Broward deputies had involvement in more nefarious activity, like covering up some crimes of some students, or others?

Ignoring so many warnings makes the crazies confidant they will get away with anything. But this kid was almost screaming to get caught, so who ordered all the "stand down" orders?

Trayvon had problems that got covered up, but our media told us he was a ten year old kid just eating some candy, gunned down in cold blood. Hands up Don't Shoot also a big lie. The trend is clear enough.

59 It's still dark here in the Bluegrass, but I can tell we're going to have some flooding issues. The area is pot marked with sinkholes and they're all full of water. I see the reflections of lights in spots where the water is sitting. That only happens when the sink holes are overflowing. I've been told the sink holes are all "interconnected" and the water rises and falls with the Ohio River.

64 So they gave Jesus Cruz a plea deal before the bodies were even cold (no trial or discovery or discussion of failures), the Sheriff knew there were multiple responders who did nothing and covered it up for a week, and now I hear they're immediately destroying the school where the shooting took place?

I've known officers in Podunk, WV. Minor, basic investigations into violent crimes by one person against one person can take months. There's no way they done jack on this shooting, and I'd wager it's like the plea deal. Destroy/suppress this evidence and let's never talk of this again.

The DOJ has to get involved in this.

65 Americans obsess about food too much. What vegetable or fruit is the MOST healthy of them all, what ingredient will cure your ills, etc. For example, people read about the Mediterranean diet and decide they will drink more wine and eat olive oil, and then they will be healthy. They ignore eating three times as many vegetables and living in a calmer, happier environment as a factor.

The point is there is no simple fix, no magic ingredient. Eat a variety of healthy foods, enjoy them with others you care about, and don't obsess about it. And yes exercise, but do it with activities you enjoy. JMO .

Dried beans and peas, honey, rice, flour for baking your own bread, oatmeal etc. You just have to walk past the processed stuff to get to the good stuff.

Then she notes she said "white mothers", because the are thousands of grieving blacks mothers in Chicago ... and you don't see town halls for them, do you?

Thousands ... well a few news ones every weekend, but it is a strong point that they push the white mothers and a mass shooting for gun control, but ignore the plight of the black Democrat voting mother that might want some action on their side of town (which is always run by Democrats).

of course the MSM gets to stage manage her sound bites, framed around their spin, so most viewers will not make the connection, but will learn to hate Dana.

97 The Zimmerman cable was supposed to have been intercepted in Mexico, and the code broken in the US, however the Brits got it by violating the neutrality of the American Trans-Atlantic telegraph cable that passed through British territory.
The SIS tapped the cable for German communication to the Americas, and broke the code in England. When they provided it to their contacts in the US government, they brought a copy of the coded cable in and used the key they had developed to decode it "to show that it was a valid document" but mostly to allow the disingenuous claim that it was "broken in the US"
A later copy was gotten from Mexico, I believe, but it was the initial intercept that gave information that there was something to find

A wonderful example of counter espionage, or manipulation of US policy by foreign governments.

105 Little-Known Hockey Fact: Prior to 1968 there were no tie games in minor league hockey. If a game was tied after regulation time, the teams would play a 10 minute overtime period. If the game remained tied after the overtime session the game would be settled in a shootout. This usually took place in the parking lot behind the arena. Prior to 1955 players brought their own weapons. In an attempt to standardize the process, in 1955 standard issue Webley revolvers became the official sidearm of hockey. Survivors on the losing team received medical treatment without out-of-pocket expense in the public Canadian healthcare system.

* White-hispanic Cruz's diverse name is apparently a big part of why no one at the school, social worker, sheriff, or FBI level stopped him in the months and years leading up to the shooting.
____________________

Yes, the DOJ under racists Obama and Holder implemented a bunch of idiotic policies to get local schools to stop arresting "too many" black and hispanic students for their crimes, on the theory that the only reason so many blacks and hispanics end up in prison is because of institutional (i.e. white) racism, and not due to the fact that blacks and hispanics commit many more, and many more violent, crimes than whites and Asians.

So the DOJ was conditioning the award of federal grant money on schools' reducing their arrests of black and hispanic students. Schools responded to the incentives created by the DOJ by ignoring, hiding, lying about, etc., the crimes being committed by black and hispanic students (so that they would not have to arrest said criminals and thereby generate arrest statistics that would keep them from getting the federal money).

That's why the Broward deputy at the school didn't do anything (except hide) when the shooting started. He wasn't at the school to stop crime. He was at the school to help hide and cover-up student crime, especially minority student crime (that's also why he refused to cooperate in the earlier investigation of Cruz).

Cruz was apprehended because a police officer saw him wearing the same clothing that witnesses said the shooter was wearing. If I remember correctly, it was a Coral Springs officer -- the same agency that was the first to go into the school building.

It has become very apparent that the Broward County Sheriff's Office is corrupt, cowardly and incompetent. All that flows from Sheriff Israel; no wonder he is trying to deflect blame.

Question for you -- I can buy a five pound bag of whole wheat flour and white enriched flour for the exact same price. But if I buy a loaf of whole wheat bread it's a dollar a loaf more expensive.

What's the story there?

121 Little-known hockey fact: Female hockey fans can be particularly avid about their favorite players. During the heyday of Pittsburgh Penguin star Mario Lemieux, women fans would greet the team bus outside the arena, carrying signs with slogans such as "Marry-oh me, Mario!" or "Mario- I'd Love To Have Your Baby!!!" despite the fact that he was married with two children.

At a playoff game in 1987, a particularly overzealous fan was seen carrying a sign saying, "Mario, I Have Your Baby!" She was arrested for kidnapping.

I've 15 gained pounds since July. Dropped the carbs starting January 2017, no alcohol or starches, diet very similar to yours. I didn't have a lot to lose, but I had this pretty size 6 dress I wanted to look nice in for my son's wedding. Right after the wedding we went to an all inclusive resort for two weeks. Yeah.



Then I let the holidays get to me and I'm back up to a size 10. I finally figured out - I just can't handle carbs. They glom onto me and don't let go.

128 You can speed your metabolism back up with two things. Weights and intermittent fasting. That's when you eat only in a window each day. I fast 16 including the night and eat only during the other 8 hours. Never fall for the many meals a day bs, less is better. And you do not need breakfast. IF cranks the metabolism and reduces blood sugar spikes which reduce insulin response which is the driver of fat storage.

151 Dagny. Glad your diet is working so well.
WW may not be the best but it does give me a basis for cutting back portions and dialing back the sugar intake. It works for me and it's taking off the weight. My main problem is bread. I love bread, lots and lots of bread. WW doesn't leave any room in the diet for it.
The free foods on WW are mostly eggs, boneless/skinless chicken breast (which I steam) and lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. The chicken is bland but I incorporate it into recipes with lots of spices. It's a point system. The zero point foods added since the late 80's really aren't zero since the daily points were reduced to account for them.
I guess what I'm saying is use what works for you personally. This works for me and my spouse.

Possibility that trigger happy cop might actually shoot an armed teacher in an active shooter situation? = acceptable risk

Only water, no carbonation. No alcohol. A shit ton of non-starchy vegetables. Fruit only cucumbers, peppers, kiwi, blackberries and raspberries, avocado. Fructose is almost as bad as sucrose. Eat enough calories, but not in carbs. No powders, shakes, or processed food. Excess protein turns into glucose too, but most people don't get enough. First week is hell, then easy sailing.

This is pretty close to what my wife and I did. I lost 55 lbs and she lost 85 lbs (and another 30 after started going to a gym). We didn't include as much fruits. Also we capped our caloric intake to about 1500 calories per day using My Fitness Pal app.

Another thing was about 45 minutes of moderately fast walking a day. Get that heart rate up to 120 beats per minute for a certain amount of time.

Also we weighed ourselves every morning, this helped us not to be afraid of monitoring our progress.

Too many people now know about the systemic failures.



Too many people have heard of the possibility that the policies of
the Sheriff's Department and the School District might possibly have
been the second greatest contributor to the death of these 17
individuals, second only to the asshole who actually did the shooting.

Yeah, but we know the systemic failures the same way we look at the outside of a house. We can see a broken window or that the lawn needs cutting, but we don't know any of the details inside. I doubt we ever will.

Observing Lenten abstinence and a protein-heavy low-carb diet is something of a conundrum. Follow the modern practice and it doesn't feel like much of a sacrifice; on Friday I just go ahead and have the carbs. Follow the old practice of no meat at all during Lent and it's impossible to work out. Not a happy feeling either way.

223 Hadrian - I don't come from a faith tradition that observed Lent. I have started since marrying Rev. I don't subtract something. I look for ways to bless someone each day. For instance the other day I took myself out for breakfast. The bill was about 5 dollars, and I gave the waitress a 4x that tip. Not to puff myself up - just giving an example. Not eating certain foods seems odd to me, but like i said, I don't come from that background. It may be very meaningful to others who have. No disparagement intended.

225 From a 60 Minutes segment on CBS News about Columbine:

Police were at the school right away. Within five minutes of the first shots fired, the sheriff's deputy assigned to work at the school was in the west parking lot. He exchanged gunfire with Harris who retreated into the school. That deputy was soon joined by six other policemen who took positions around the building. None of them entered the school, where Harris and Klebold were heading toward the library, shooting in the halls and throwing bombs into the cafeteria below. They walked into the library and began shooting students.

Among those killed there was Sophomore Kelly Fleming. Her parents, Don and DeeDee, say that the police should have entered the school earlier.

"There was no one in that school that had a gun other than the two killers," says DeeDee. "And no one pursued them. No one tried to engage them."

"For almost 20 minutes she waited. Twenty minutes, that's a long time for someone to have the opportunity to come in and make a difference."


And iirc, there were cops on the scene at the Pulse Niteclub shooting too -- on the outside.

235 For Lent you could try Maultaschen. A meat filled dough similar to raviolis. I had them when I visited Germany a number of years ago

From wiki
In Swabia, Maultaschen are the traditional dish associated with the Lenten commemoration of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. During Lent, Catholics and other Christians are encouraged to refrain from eating meat. However, Maultaschen are humorously associated with these days because the meat in the dish is concealed under the pasta dough and cannot be seen by God. Among the anecdotal stories regarding the origin of the dish, one claims that Maultaschen were created by the Cistercian monks of Maulbronn Abbey for that purpose.[

One of the volunteers said it's stunning to see 2,000 people line up peacefully and wait patiently for hours or days to be seen for needed treatments. Our team consists of everything from our pastor, to a married couple who buy and prepare food for our team, an interpreter, and medical pros. They've been doing this for years.

My husband says that when/if he ever sells his business and retires, he'd love to go as an interpreter. I'd love to volunteer with meals.

That is a lovely approach to Lent. Growing up Catholic, we were supposed to sacrifice something. (For kids it was often candy or something like that.) The idea of a positive deed each day of Lent is great.

Posted by: JTB at February 24, 2018 08:31 AM (V+03K)

253 I actually think the teacher made a valid point. Good guys with guns
have been shot before in these situations. Not a deal breaker if people
actually want to make things better (not going to say "solve the
problem"). Most of the anti-points have been bad, at least that one is a
think to consider. BTW, remember when the left said no pilots should be
armed after 9/11? There answer is always the same even if the question
changes.


The answer to the question is the good guys hold their carry IDs ( note - I said IDs not 'permits') over their heads the same way undercover police officers identify themselves, and they lay down their guns when told to do so. Also the students will identify their teachers to the cops. Any other stupid questions?

257 1. Times are getting very close to violence.
2. Whether you like it or not - you need to concealed carry.
3. If you carry you need concealed carry insurance.

I have USCCA insurance. It covers not only - self defense/defense of others - use of weapons, it also covers you if you have to kick somebodies ass physically in the same situations. It covers bail and criminal defense. It also covers civil suits for your actions and compensates you for the time you have to spend in civil court. A million in coverage is $30 per month. Also you get the really excellent Concealed Carry magazine as part of the deal.

https://www.usconcealedcarry.com/

I believe there are other options, NRA insurance, Legal Shield. but this is the one I like. Your mileage may vary. And no, I am not part of their program to compensate for people that are brought in.

I mentinoned in the comments section last night that I had seen some disturbing allegations regarding the BrCoward County Sheriffs Department. More information has come out today. This whole thing stinks to high heaven, and not just because of multiple failures of the authorities to act on the multiple warnings they received about the shooter. First off, what I mentioned last night. Here's a Twitter thread (conveniently aggregated at Unrolled for easy reading) from @TheLastRefuge2 (Twitter handle for the Conservative Treehouse blog). It alleges that the department has been downplaying and outright ignoring student crimes in order to cook the books for federal grant money. He claims to have documented proof of these allegations.

Second, it has now come out that three additional deputies joined the one assigned to the school and took up positions behind their cars while the massacre was going on. There they waited, while children were dying, until Coral Springs Police arrived and entered the building. I'm not buying the “danger” excuse either. Yes, rushing the gunman would have been dangerous. It's part of their job. Firefighters, many of them volunteers getting paid exactly nothing, rush into burning buildings every day to save lives. It's dangerous. They do it because it is their job.

Finally, there's this: Sheriff's hiring of political supporters under fire. Seems Israel was using his post as Sheriff to further his political career, and loading up the department with political hacks on the taxpayer's dime.

Enough is enough. This needs to be immediately investigated by the DOJ, and if these allegations are proven true, heads should literally roll (I'll settle for long jail sentences. In general population).


Ooops

Enough. I'm sick to my stomach reading about all of this. How about a clip of Demi Lovato kicking snow into her own face. The arms twitch at the end makes the clip.



Gettin' in the Wind


Anyone know what this is?

MX 100.JPG


That, my friends, is a 1979 Yamaha MX 100 that I found in a barn 2 years ago. I bought it for a song for Little so he could learn to ride, and the kicker is that it is identical to the first motorcycle I ever owned as a kid. I know, right? Sadly, I never could get it running. When it started it would rev at full throttle, and even then I couldn't get it started often. I puttered with it, but I'm no mechanic. I don't really know what I'm doing. A local motorcycle shop kinda blew me off when I took it in for them to fix. And so it sat in the garage, mocking me, my promise to my son of a motorcycle unfulfilled.

For Christmas I bought him a YZ 125 that's really too big for him, but I figured he'd grow into it. The guy I bought it from, however, reconditions motorcycles on the side as a second business. After I recounted my story, he told me to bring it over. I did, he tore it down and figured out that the crankcase seals and the oil injector were bad. He tore out the injector system (NBD, I'll just use mix), and replaced the seals. The thing runs like a top now, and he only charged me 400 bucks to basically rebuild the whole engine! So now we have 2 bikes, and the YZ is plenty big enough for me to ride....

So tomorrow, weather permitting, Little and I are going to have a Daddy/Little day together riding our new (old) dirtbikes.

Life is good if you let it be, y'know?


How Bizarre

Sorry for the personal anecdote there, but here's a story that's completely bizarre.

The story of a weird world I was warned never to tell

You really have to read it to believe it. A woman's whole life was based around the outrageous delusion of her otherwise exemplary step father. I don't even really know how to describe it better than that.


I Hear What You're Saying

Troll of the Week




The response from the Canadian Foreign Policy office is pretty good too.

Speaking of Canada, Trudeau's India trip is a total disaster — and he has only himself to blame. And this from a self described Fluffyhair von Fancysuit fangirl.


Welcome to America

Charles C.W. Cooke became an American citizen today. Welcome to America Charles. I guess this means we can't hold your accent against you anymore. A piece of advice:

If an American gal asks you to knock her up in the morning, it's a hell of a lot more fun here than in the old country. But, by the same token, the natural assumptions Americans make when a British gal asks them if they have a rubber are wildly optimistic.

BTW, Brent Cochran and Alexthechick are resuming their podcast this coming week. Check the sidebar for the link. If they follow their old schedule, it'll probably be up Wednesday


ETA The gal who did the Chibi Presidents I linked last night is the daughter of a Moron. She was quite pleased by the reception they received here, and has decided to do a series of AoS Chibis. I can't wait to see them.

75 someone is reporting that the the initial report that broward county sheriff's deputies had taken up defensive positions behind their cruisers with their weapons drawn are inaccurate.

in fact their weapons were not drawn, instead they had each taken a piece of chalk in hand and were prepared to enter the building immediately upon the cessation of gunfire and begin tracing body outlines.

78 Several times, while reading the Broward County school shooting threads , I was tempted to mention that I just went on an eighteen hour binge read of Kirt Schlichter's Indian Country and People's Republic.

I don't agree with everything, but he does present a plausible story line based on the breakup of Yugoslavia and the ethnic cleansing in Kosovo.

What I wanted to read about, the break up of the United States, was reduced to two sentences; Hillary gets elected president and orders the confiscation of all firearms in private hands. Law Enforcement in rural red states shrug and do nothing while the progressive brownshirts go on a murder rampage.

Everything in that Parkland school shooting fits Schlichter's narrative.

Incidentally, the eBooks are overpriced at near Ten Bucks each. No eBook should cost that much.

90 I can't wait for the full report from Coral Springs. So much time unaccounted for.

I've pretty much given up on any "reports" or "investigations" these days. They're probably all just whitewashes done by partisan hacks. The main goal is to protect the bureaucracy.

We'll never get rid of them. I think it was the Emperor Tiberius who decided his right hand man Sejanus needed to go so he killed him. Dude was in charge of the bureaucrats so Tiberius killed lots of them too.

91 Hey everybody.

Made the mistake of wading back into Hollywood Elsewhere today. Since Florida, Jeff Wells is running a leftist hategroup there, plain and simple.

I am tempted to just go ahead, leave a giant turd in one of their comment sections, and get myself banned. But then, they'd know they piss me off, which is none of their fucking business either.

Thankfully, and I know not everyone here has had this experience, but-- and I'm not kidding-- reading Quora has helped. While there's idiot hateful lefties there too, there's also a lot of conservatives who are pulling no punches and unafraid to take on the asshole SJWs. Thank God.

132 Prince Ludwig the Deplorable

The voters are supposed to give broad direction to the nation by their choices. We used to have Representatives who worked on that, although they were supposed to make decisions in the best interest of their represented citizens. The authority was balanced by taking responsibility for good choices.

Like the majority of American citizen voters choosing Trump for President. This was voters taking responsibility.

If voters have the authority, then all rights of citizens should be theirs. Including drinking, marriage, and gun-ownership.


The trend in the last 50+ years, almost world-wide, is to wall off citizens from exerting their authority. Unaccountable people, almost an oligarchy, but certainly with similar world views on the State as the new religion, are taking over in the EU, US, UN, NGOs, and Leftist fronts.

With the unexpected Trump in office we are seeing the unmasking of many.

seriously.

whoever the slavs sent to the big alphabet convention must have gotten completely fucked up on the last night of the convention and then dropped his clay tablets.

the tablets got smashed up and everyone else had already left the convention so he was there on his tent floor trying to reassemble the tablets so he could take the alphabet back home and help his peeps enter the modern world as literate peeps.

instead he fucked everything up.

got the letters out of order.

got some of the letters backwards.

simply fucked some of them up altogether.

then when he tried to get the pronunciation key lined up.

oy vey.

thousands of years later and the slavs still have not caught up from this handicap.

Animal Farm

A book who's title I can't remember - that was Vietnam Vets personal testimonies about their tours

Many others that he didn't MAKE me read - but suggested. And I liked to read. Because we were broke as Hell - but the Library was free.

There was an elderly Filipino man, now living in Texas, whose

survived the war fighting the Japanese as a guerrilla.

What are the odds.

My next door neighbor's dad earned himself a Bronze Star humping a BAR and a flame thrower in the Philippines. Great guy. His son showed me a newspaper clipping of the action where he burned out a Jap position. There were a lot of guys in the Bataan death march from Maywood, Il., not far from me here.

++++

I disagree about the draft age. 18 is just out of high school, but before most have started a family or really gotten a career type job. You don't want to wait until people are older and have started to build their adult life and then pull them out of that into service. Plus, the military wants to indoctrinate the draftees into doing things and thinking in a military frame of mind. You wait until people are older, they get harder to train, both mentally and physically.

As far as Cruz, I think he would have been ineligible just on the basis of the psychotropic drugs he was on. At least I hope so.

Phone the membership desk, and intone the following phrase, EXACTLY as written:

Please Code My Membership as NO PROMOTIONS, thank you. Now, Please VERIFY AND CONFRIM That My Membership HAS BEEN SO CODED.

That "No Promotions" status removes you from all of the NRA's Junk Mail and other Fund Raising solicitations.

It's an easy phone call. Just be sure to use that exact phrase....there is no such animal in the NRA's contracted phone center's script where your plea to "end the junk mail" results in any corresponding keyboard action by whichever CSR you're speaking with.

300 Thanks for the ONT.

My Dad bought me a '78 Yamaha 400cc when I asked in High school. He has always loved riding, so I asked him one day if we could go looking for one (That I would pay for), and the next night there was this beautiful new old bike sitting in our garage when I got home. I stood looking at it in the garage for around 20 minutes and Dad came down like a kid in a candy store to look at it with me. I'll always remember that moment.

This was in '92 or so. My Dad at this time had a '66 Honda dream that he bought while in the army. It was in positively mint condition. Looked like this:

He had a Transient Ischemic Attack seven years after almost dying from peritonitis. The peritonitis started around when he was writing Time Enough for Love, so his downhill slide in quality correlated with his heath.

He was one of the patients that was a pioneer of carotid artery surgery, with smoking likely bringing on the condition.

He did not write for a number of years as he recovered from his medical issues.

As a side-note, his rare blood type led to difficulties with transfusions, so he started the tradition of blood drives at SF conventions.

It's named Chibi after a battle there in the first century A.D.
--------------------------

One of the biggest naval battles of all time - the Battle of Red Cliffs.

Lots of interesting repercussions as a result of that battle, as it turned a "nearly sure-thing" conquest into what became known as the Three Kingdoms of China. Unsurprisingly, it gets a lot of attention in the novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms".

Though I think it was early Third Century, not First.

Unless there was another important battle there?

IIRC, (it's been several minutes now), the article mentioned the Battle of Chibi around 200 A.D.
------------------------

That'd be the one.

The Three Kingdoms has come up in conversations I've been in quite a lot lately (the next game in a long-running strategy video game series will focus on it, and another long-running series that exclusively focuses on it just released the latest game). IIRC, the numbers I've seen thrown around suggest that the population of China was reduced by at least 75% between the Yellow Turban Rebellion in 185 (which is generally seen as the prologue event) and 265, when the Jin Dynasty took power.

That's a lot of dead people.

One of the Three Kingdoms was the Kingdom of Wei. Their high water mark was immediately before the Battle of Chibi, and the battle was supposed to be the Kingdom's big opportunity to deal with both the Kingdom of Wu (which was just getting started) and Liu Bei (who would later form the Kingdom of Shu) before either one could become a serious threat to Wei. Instead, it was a disasterous defeat, and the long bloody civil war continued for several more decades.

Yamaha 60.
Yamaha Twin Jet 100.
Honda Super 90.
Honda Cub 50.
Kawasaki 125.
Yamaha DT-1 dirt bike.
My Honda Dream 150. Knew another kid with a 300. Loved the way it sounded. Those mufflers were unique to that brand.
Honda Hawks.
Kawasaki Triples 3-cylinders.
Honda Scramblers.
One buddy who had a Sportster with hard bags and a fairing.
Suzuki 80.
A Cushman Eagle with a two-speed and a foot clutch. Throttle turned backwards away from you and it had a heater for your hands.
A Triumph 650 with the foot controls reversed (brake on the LH side).
A buddy across the street who had a little mini-bike with a lawn mower engine in it. That thing was fun.

Tiny engines all, but gas had more octane back then and they kept up with traffic quite well.

Good times.

Commie Broward County was running drills at the school. Took a troubled kid and dropped him off (Uber car matches Kim Sneads wife of family he was living with). Kid who shot up 3 floors in a gas mask and Kevlar vest ditches equipment and walks out with students. He goes to Subway and McD's gets arrested. Photo of him in handcuffs has no sweat, no bruises, no marks, clothes perfectly pressed and clean. The next day it's reported that his public defender says that they made a plea to avoid death and so there will be no full trial (no preservation of evidence, facts, and witness statements) to avoid putting citizens of Broward County through the pain. Then the next day Broward County officials and school board say they want to demolish the building immediately but no offices vote has been made to protect the children from entering.

Also there is video evidence of students saying multiple shooters and a girl claiming on video she was walking and talking with Cruz while gun shots were being fired. Also two videos exist plus Tucker video of school shooting drills taking place that morning and they thought it was a drill.

Also the Uber driver has not been identified by the media and investigated but eye witnesses say the color of the car was a gold color. Kimberly Snead's car is gold/burnt orange as confirmed by google maps. Day of the shooting a woman was taken in by unmarked Broward County car by a man in plain clothes. She was returned later that day or the next. The Snead Husband is Military Intel analysis. Also the Snead's want claim to Cruz's 800k inheritance he was due by age 22 from his dead adoptive mother.

Finally. It's illegal for the press to release a name without a formal booking and charges at the station by the DA. His name was released before then. People should be sued but he has no family and is said to have killed 17 kids and wounded more.

Not to mention the Commiies with their prepackaged agenda being pushed within hours and all the children of 3 letter agonies involved.

It's all so Spooky. It does not pass the Columbine smell test.

Also all murders have a SOP where evidence is preserved, a finding of facts, and witnesses interviewed. These steps are never skipped in the real world because of the feelings of people.

Take out the emotions and think logically and rationally. Shit sticks worse than Oklahoma City. And to make matters worse, its like a weekly event of Deep State Commies colluding against Ametica and American Citizens and getting caught.

512 Fun fact about British noble titles... they chose not to use "Count", as most other European nations do, because that word is really similar to a very filthy insult in the English language. They use "Earl" instead, which derives from the Germanic term "Jarl".

They use other titles that derive from "Count", though, such as "Countess" and "Viscount". But they just didn't like the idea, before standardized spelling really became a thing, of having such a lofty title being semi-legitimately pronounced as "cunt".

You go in there right now - shake the Sheriff's Office from Top to Bottom - and those residents will make ten times the stink that they've made over the High School Shooting.

Broward County ain't gonna' change. You could show 'em video of Cruz shooting kids while Broward Cops eat donuts ... and I really don't think it would change.

Might discourage copycats.

Including in the Ceremony. Force those four cowardly Deputies, at gunpoint if need be, to actually tie the knot, throw the rope, and execute the condemned.

The rope doesn't get "tied off" to the tree. Oh, no. They've got to pull it, and the condemned up, by their own muscles and hands.

And hold him there, feeling every twitch on the line, just as if they'd hooked a 175 lb. carp.

They should have to bear the burden, literally and figuratively.

If they blanche at this demand, the next rope is for them, one or all.

There would be no shortage of volunteers to pull *that* rope, from the families of seventeen dead kids, I'd imagine.

Posted by: publius, Rascally Rapscallion of a Poperin Pear at February 23, 2018 11:53 PM (8O3HH)


Duke was top of the nobility because it indicated a primacy of military command, at least originating.

Below that the standard was Count who ruled a county and thus administered a territory. Above a mere count was a Marquise who was a county of a border territory (i.e. a "march") which is similar to a march lord and in many ways to a "count palantine"; also above a count was a landgrave, who was a count in the Holy Roman Empire who was independent of any other power other than the Holy Roman Emperor. Below a count was a viscount, who originally was the chief non-hereditary minion of a count, but later devolved into a hereditary position. At the bottom was a baron who simply had aegis over some allotment of land and over the people therein.

You don't destroy evidence and don't follow procedures because feelings. There was literally an article stating this was the reason for the plea deal to avoid death and a trial.

So the new norm will be feed the evidence to the masses via the MSM narrative.

Because the outrage ain't coming from Broward County.

What do you do ... and I'm quite serious ... when Affluent Miami got exactly the Police they wanted ... shit goes sideways ... and Affluent Miami doesn't blame their Police ?

You go in there right now - shake the Sheriff's Office from Top to Bottom - and those residents will make ten times the stink that they've made over the High School Shooting.

Broward County ain't gonna' change. You could show 'em video of Cruz shooting kids while Broward Cops eat donuts ... and I really don't think it would change.

People pick what they think they want. Broward County picked. And come Hell or High Water - they're gonna' defend it.

The google maps of the Snead residence for the car and reports the blonde woman was taken in for questioning, the Report of the Uber driver who is nameless and color of car. The Snead's trying to claim ownership of the 800k inheritance. And 100 years of Commie/totalitarian history. The Colombine standard.

Earl is Alglo-Saxon, from Germanic, so it predates the Norman introduction of the debased continental titles. Failure to launch of count as a title may be due to Norman aristocracy going native, or due to the association with cunt as mentioned above.

"Earl" was the noble rank in Anglo-Saxon England which composed the Witenagamot (along with ecclesiastical positions later on). There was no female equivalent.

So, as time went on, the title "Earl" was retained while the term "Countess" was imported as there was no native equivalent.

Yeah.

I've toyed around with the following notion, for quite some time ... what if there really is no Heaven or Hell ? What if it's just everyone of us - stuck with our own damn selves - in our own "minds" - for eternity ?

'Cause it would take a really, really devout Christian to not turn that into Misery. I put my own Over/Under at about forty-five minutes.

------------

In 'A Christmas Carol' the tortured spirits were compelled to observe all of the sundry human suffering, without being able to help:

"The air was filled with phantoms, wandering hither and thither in restless haste, and moaning as they went. Every one of them wore chains like Marley’s Ghost; some few (they might be guilty governments) were linked together; none were free. Many had been personally known to Scrooge in their lives. He had been quite familiar with one old ghost, in a white waistcoat, with a monstrous iron safe attached to its ankle, who cried piteously at being unable to assist a wretched woman with an infant, whom it saw below, upon a door-step. The misery with them all was, clearly, that they sought to interfere, for good, in human matters, and had lost the power for ever."

However a GI was at a garage sale in Seattle where he saw a photo of an unknown GI standing by the burial site. He immediately recognized the place and passed the information on to authorities.
The Japanese repatriated the bones and developed the garden.

I'm very jealous. I have some space, theoretically, but finding anvils out on the west coast is difficult. It's easier, according to blacksmiths I've spoken with, if you're back east.

If I could find an anvil out here, I'd probably buy a small welding rig and build a propane forge. My goal is to buy some land and set up a forge and art studio, and furnish a house entirely with what I make. Iron work, wood work, blown glass...
