Hello! This is Peanut. He's my sisters dog and my sister is the one who introduced me to AoS. I'm thankful everyday she did so. Peanut is a very sweet and loving dog and he just makes everyone smile. Thanks for the pet thread, like P it just makes the world a better place. - Jennifer

Peanut appears to be waiting for a T-R-E-A-T? Great photo of this pooch. Glad your sister has good tastes in dogs as well as blogs. Thank you for being supporters.

Hi, long time lurker and lover of the pet thread. My wife and I adopted two kittens last year from a shelter that quickly became the center of our family. This fellow is Bean, AKA The Joe Biden of Cats. He’s most fond of ambushing strangers and grooming their hair. Here he is again with his sister Bella, whose fondness for you strongly correlates with the amount of food you currently have. - John & Sam

Brave folks adopting 2 kittens at one time. From the photo it looks like it has gone well. Thanks for being long time lurkers and coming out of the shadows to share this story. Awesome.

Long time lurker, sometimes I post. I love the Pet Thread, thank you for putting it together. Meet Rollo our Bull Mastiff and Olive our Boxer. He finds it funny when we try to move them for space on the couch. - Jocelyn

So I'm not the only one who has to fight for his right for space on the couch. Looks like your dogs are extremely abused there. Thank you for sharing today Jocelyn.

This is Opie the Opposum. Greta and Gracie found him out side and brought him to us. He’s quite the partier. And likes to snowball fight with the Nieghbor kids - Big Alfredo


Not quite a pet, but we do celebrate animals.

I have never commented at the HQ, but have enjoyed the blog over the last several years and always love the pet thread.

While this pretty lady, Miss Grace, isn’t our pet, she is one of my favorite donkeys from the rescue my son and I volunteer at. She loves being rubbed and scratched and is willing to snuggle with you all day. She is good at standing between you and the muck barrel or even on the muck rake so you have to give her some loving.

If you don’t mind, I may send more pics of our other favorites.

Thanks,

MW in Texas

MW the photo you submitted with your son in it was quite cute. However, I posted the 2nd photo to keep the youngster's anonymity. We are glad you enjoy the blog. Please feel free to send in photos of your animals anytime.

My girlfriends two rescues and a Amazon box we just opened. They love that box, it's going to be hard for her to put it out in the trash on Monday. - John


These photos demonstrate that boxes are one of the best toys ever for animals and children alike. Cute photos, thanks for sharing today.

Great photos and stories everyone. Thanks to the Morons who submitted the various links.

If you wish to share a story or your pet here on the Pet Thread please drop us a line at petmorons at gmail dot com.

Thanks and have a great week!!!!

Saturday Gardening and Puttering Thread 2/22/20 [KT]

VincaMajor.png

Hello, gardeners, putterers and winter dreamers! 40 miles north sent in the lovely photo of Vinca major above. It was an extra-large flower, so he thought we might like to see it. Lovely. Geometric. There are a couple more plant photos below.

Meanwhile, Larro had some interesting visitors:

My wife heard a scratching at front door, and thought I wanted in.
I was in the back; this fellow was looking for a hideout on our front porch.

Yeah, I tried to coax him down and got a sound similar to a buzzsaw that made me feel like cheap plywood.... danger Will Robinson!!! Back off!

This bird shows up in backyard to go fishing.

crannyd.JPG

In late January and early February, he got visitors around his bird feeder. Care to identify them?

feedr1.JPG

feedrr2.JPG

feedrr3.JPG

He says the doves usually stay on the ground under the feeder.

dovongrd.JPG

And daddy cardinal won't approach. At least while people are looking.

daddycar.JPG

It has snowed in Northern Texas since then.

In other critter news, watch out for florida snake orgies.

Here are the other plants that 40 miles north has got goin' in California:

My penstemons are difficult to photograph because the flowers are usually pointed downward, and mine often need additional weeding and deadheading to become photograph-ready.

I believe these are Penstemon Barbaratus.

Penstemon1.JPG

I have three tomatos that survived the winter, including a San Marzano that decided it's spring:

tomatos.jpg

Have you picked your tomato varieties for this year? San Marzano is a good paste type if you have the right climate for it.

Music

Scott Johnson thinks he may know where thespian Mike Bloomberg may have gotten his impression that farming is simple. There is some commentary by Victor Davis Hanson, an actual farmer, at the link above.

Professional Photography

My Modern Met did their picks for the best photos of 2019. There's a wet plate photo of Greta. Think it must have used some toxic chemicals. I've seen better wet plates. But I've never had any experience with wet plates myself. Ever taken, developed or printed a plate photo of any kind?

Anyway, this little guy is kinda cute. The Dutch photographer sells wall art, so you can get a big print if you want.

praireedg.jpg

There are some great photos at the link. I like the hummingbird.


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

Include your nic unless you want to remain a lurker.

10 Closest to plate photography I have come is 4x5 BW we learned on in HS. Shot, developed, and printed (even IR 4x5 stuff) Vocational school Photography classes. Before digital was a thing. two years 4 hours a day. (got me off the HS campus).

I know, I know...

14 The second pic is a house finch. They have that little bit of red. I kind of cheated though because I have a little Audubon Society pocket guide. I used to have lots of bird feeders until the wood peckers took over and started banging on the house siding. Had every type from little ones to full red headed big ones.

21 Cool thing I do with my 3 yr old granddaughter. Hard to carry on a conversation over FaceTime with a 3 year old. Started using my bird book. I hold up a photo and she has to guess what kind of bird. She is especially partial to the blue jay, eagle and hawk.

Posted by: Sharon(willow's apprentice) at February 22, 2020 01:42 PM (QzF6i)

22 Hooray! This is the first gardening thread I've been able to read in real time. I missed it.

Love the photo of the little critter (prarie dog?) 'cuddling' up to the flower.

23 Not a fan of coons.

Love to see the color this time of year. Only good photo I have is of a pair of sheds my wife found. Talk about no color!

24 I developed allergies to developer. Yes relaxing and frustrating at the same time. I never did any darkroom work after HS. Joined the navy out of HS. Never used photo skills for money or a job. Large format photography was always my favorite. Learned about Zone system photography Jr year in HS. Never mastered it.

25 Cursed is the ground because of you; through painful toil you will eat food from it all the days of your life. It will produce thorns and thistles for you, and you will eat the plants of the field. By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return. -- Genesis 3:17-19

28 I checked my violet patch the other day, there were about seven in bloom...in February. I'll have to take a look later today, the cold spell of the past two days probably killed them.

Posted by: kallisto at February 22, 2020 01:49 PM (DJFLF)

29 Our garden this year will be pretty minimal. Just a few containers for leaf lettuce and herbs and maybe some cherry tomatoes. We do have hopes for a more extensive veggie garden in future years.

The corabells in the southeast corner are turning green and pliant. Some birds are returning, too. Haven't spotted a robin yet, though.

65 Ths has been the mildest winter we've had for a long time. So far. Plenty of rain but almost no snow or (even better) almost no ice. A few nights below freezing but only a few. I wonder how that will influence gardens this year. I can say we have some dandelions showing up in the lawn and I've been told a few daffodils growing against sunny walls have ade an appearence.

That doesn't mean there isn't plenty of time for serious winter weather to show up.

Posted by: JTB at February 22, 2020 02:33 PM (7EjX1)

66 Damned deer woulda et 'em anyway.

The deer are massing in the woods behind my house, in preparation for an attack on any sprouts which have the temerity to poke their heads up. I've already found many holes in my bulb beds indicating marauding critters. Why can't nature be more....sterile?

82 Well, I feel dumb.I thought the vinca flower looked kind of like a periwinkle... and duh!

The greenest thing in my yard right now is a groundcover that started showing up after I spread a leftover bag of potting soil around the #1 rhubarb . Not sure if the soil wasn't properly sterilized or if the extra nutrients gave it a boost. It's rather like baby's tears: tiny, round leaves on spreading vines.

Posted by: Bertram Cabot, Jr. at February 22, 2020 01:38 PM (aKsyK)


True story.

Rascal was a big hit in Japan.

Persons began importing raccoons and selling them as pets.

Persons bought raccoons and pets and released them into the wild when pets no longer pet like.

Raccoons are survivors.

Now various parts of Japan are trying to cope with wild raccoons. They love to gnaw on all the wood at some of the Temple structures.

Yeah, me neither. Took a great photography and photo lab class while in college. Developed our own film and prints. Great fun. Also used large format cameras most of the time. Our prof was very much into very short/very long exposure work. As a result he'd sometimes would set up sound actuated lighting or shutter for us. Took lots of shots of balloons popping (actually, they don't pop, they rip) and pellet gun projectiles through fruit. Long exposure work for night sky scenes.

That sort of thing. Never did any lab work after that though.

But.. 6 foot T-posts pounded 1' in (clay soil). 8' intervals. Hog fence to 4'. Then 1/2" conduit, cut in two (come in 8' sticks), affixed to the T-post with baling wire. Chicken fence on top, affixed with zip ties.

We then put ribbon here and there all over to show there was something there. Pretty easy to not see after dark, even for a deer.

Democrats on Stage [KT]

whiteyyy.jpg

Democrats take a gamble that
America is finally ready for a rich white president

Well, it has been an interesting week. It was inspiring to see the candidates unite the Democratic Party at the last debate, don't you think?

Mike Bloomberg had dismissed the previous debate, in which he did not participate, as good theater. The thespian background of Mike Bloomberg has recently been highlighted. I had not known about Bloomberg's role as Mary Poppins, for example. He's a natural.

Perhaps this is one of the things that inspired a member of The Horde, The Invisible Hand, to make a suggestion to SNL. Well, that along with Bloomberg's newly-discovered farming expertise:

If SNL weren't run by a bunch of talentless biased hacks, they would readily see how an on point parody of "Green Acres", using Bloomberg and team as cast, would effortlessly write itself.

Of course, Bloomy in the Eddie Arnold protagonist role. A fish out of water -- such an apt fit for Mike "Is it BLOOM or BLUM" Bloomberg. Just Act Naturally...

And remember that the idea of Hillary as his running mate was floated.

Hillary as Eva, utilizing her constant supply of misused and patronizing dialects, so that she can more easily pretend to communicate with deplorable folk as they gum their oatmeal for dinner.

How about the very attractive Leslie Jones in the Hillary role?

Good idea. Got to keep up with casting trends in Hollywood. I'm sure that couple would be a real natural in a little on-stage farming community.

gaccres3.jpg

Bri Stelter as Arnold the Pig. Period.

Joe Biden as Fred Ziffel, owner of Arnold the Pig, along with wife, Doris.

Which of the other candidates could be Doris?

gaccres1.jpg

I see George Soros in a dynamic cameo appearance as Mr. Haney. He's a perfect Mr. Fix kinda character. He's just clearing paths for the future of the South. Yep, yep, yeppers.

And lastly, for this SNL parody of a "Green Acres" Reunion episode, Ralph Monroe as 1st gay person in the history of Hooterville. History made in Hooterville -- somewhat profound, in retrospect.

gaccres2.jpg

Got any other ideas for an SNL skit that would help the candidates appear more down-home?

There have been some other comedic moments leading up to this week, as well. Steven Hayward even posted a special "Mid-week in Pictures" this month.

Feb. 5: Special Edition Mid-week in Pictures

Joe Biden: "Did I win yet?"

Feb. 8: Mega-Trumpy Edition

You have to really admire Trump, does anyone realize that he just made all the Democrats attend Rush Limbaugh's award ceremony?

Feb. 15: Dog Faced Pony Soldier Edition

"Democratic Socialists were sent by God." "Why? Was he out of locusts?"

Feb. 22: Caucasoid Caucus Edition

Mike Bloomberg: "I would like to purchase a different question."

RE: Paper ballots. Nothing wrong with paper.

Utah election auditor apparently thinks she is smarter than the MIT researchers, knows nothing about computer security, can't think outside of the box, and seems to be unaware of the post office. Yet she is confident the benefits outweigh the risks.

From https://tinyurl.com/uhp7jnl
====================
But Amelia Powers Gardner, a Utah County, Utah, election auditor who supervised her county's rollout of the Voatz system for disabled voters and service members deployed overseas, told CoinDesk that at least some of the bugs the researchers found cannot be exploited in practice.

"[The researchers] weren't able to substantiate these claims because they were never able to actually connect to the Voatz server," Powers Gardner said. "So in theory they claim that they may have been able to do these things, and only on the Android version, not the Apple version."

She said the MIT researchers' effort comes from "what ifs, and perhaps, and maybes that, frankly, just haven't panned out," and that the app had since been patched.

For Powers Gardner, Voatz's benefits far outweigh any security risks. She said the software is a far better alternative for otherwise disenfranchised voting groups than the current technological solution: email.

83 Roger Stone news, nicely played.

Stone is trying to get the Judge thrown off the case and he has a really good rationale.

The Judge will be one who decides if the Jury Forman, who was clearly biased, tainted the Jury.

But the Judge, in her long remarks during the sentencing blew it and said the 'jury served with integrity'.

Thus showing her bias on that very pertinent legal question, because she has already made a statement on the subject, before hearing any evidence on the question.

Anything connected to the internet will be eventually hacked.

Just as every code can be broken given enough time and effort.

Its all a question of whether the time and resources are worth the goal.

And I would say, deciding who is the most powerful Politician in the World? is a goal most would got to great lengths to attain.

Danny was indignant at the charge and couldn't WAIT to see the judge- who turned out to be Griffith.

It was pretty funny.

@RepSwalwell on an intel assessment Russia's trying to help the @BernieSanders campaign: "You can't hold it against Bernie Sanders that this may be a preference of Russia, but you can hold it, and ask questions of Donald Trump, if he is working as an agent of Russia"

This is like that word game where you start off with, say, "black" and you have to change one letter at a time to get to "white." Keeps their minds busy and produces nothing.

216 It was as predictable as anything, and predicted by everyone, but it does seem the control/purging/hiding of content on the twatters for political reasons is ramping up as an election year unfolds.

I think Barr mentioned Section 230 the other day, in a way that indicated he's also thinking it's time to revisit the issue of big internet platforms having immunity while also clearly suppressing certain viewpoints and info.

Don't see any chance for legislative action, and the issue is much more the oligopoly/effective monopoly situation.

And also would not be surprised if, by August, the twatters at least (Farcebook seems to have backed off a bit and appears to attempt the appearance of neutrality, from what I gather) will be basically a DNC/NPR/NYT extension.

Posted by: rhomboid at February 22, 2020 01:32 PM (El6T/)

217 These are fascinating to read, just a few short years later:

Politico:

---------------------------------------
Asserting, specifically, that November's election will be "rigged" is, all at once: the musing of a candidate who often gives credence to conspiracy theories; a talking point aimed at a disaffected electorate; a presidential candidate, following a dip in the polls, contemplating defeat; an effort to delegitimize the democratic process that could bring that defeat to bear; and a thinly veiled threat by a litigious billionaire to contest such an election result in court.

....

In this context, Trump floating the idea of a stolen election or fraud in urban areas looks more like a candidate already planting the seeds of an explanation for an eventual loss.

"On some level, he knows he's running a scam on the Republican Party," said Stuart Stevens, the chief strategist on Romney's 2012 campaign. "They put more Trumps onstage at RNC than Hispanics. At some level, he knows this is a con, just like when he said Trump University would make you rich and he knew it wouldn't.

"He's just preparing himself for the humiliation of defeat. His problem is he doesn't have a pre-nup with voters - they get to decide. He can't rig it in advance. The whole idea of a guy who inherited a company, inherited all his wealth, and is now talking about a 'rigged system'? He is the poster child of a rigged system living on Fifth Avenue."

233 WTFF? DNI has an "election threats" position, a person whose job is specifically to oversee this mysterious "threat" area?

Apart from technical threats, to systems that should not even be as electronic as they are, for general purposes of security, WhyTF is taxpayer $ being wasted on this "threat"?

Every angle is already covered (for example, in the case of *actual* involvement of a foreign power in campaign, unlike the *synthetic* simulated involvement with Trump '16, counter-intel and multiple other angles and entities to handle them have long existed).

This whole area is a leading example of the dumbing down of America in general. Election integrity in much of America is garbage already, for reasons entirely domestic. In ways that actually effect outcomes. No foreign entity can even theoretically alter an outcome the way it's already been happening in places like Philadelphia, Wayne County MI, Cook County IL, even King County WA state.

That this whole concept isn't dismissed with contempt, and the real problems screamed about, is a pathetic confirmation of a brain-dead public square in the country.

Saturday Morning Coffee Break

rise-shine-20200206-1001.jpg


Good morning Horde. Let us take a look at a few stories that didn't get too much attention here at the AoSHQ this past week.


  • Paper ballots. Nothing wrong with paper.

  • Orange Mom bad.

  • From a pretty girl to a freak of nature.

  • Vet sticks up for himself. Oh yeah he's a WWII vet.

  • Keeping your mental health issues private.

  • Help a guy and make some money.

  • Too sexy or is there something else going on?

  • An unusual medical procedure.

  • Just another reason I call them "Burger Thing".

  • Honesty, the best policy. “high as f--k”


    Hard to believe that this is the second to last Saturday of February. Enjoy these stories or something else in this open thread. No running with sharp objects, no taunting of the 'ettes and play nice with one another. Pretty simple rules.

    Have a great weekend!!!

The second story, as far as I am concerned, every person involved in that decision should be fired. I know they are more concerned with restorative justice than they are about the victims.

    70 We played a similar parlor game that we dubbed Fictionary. One person picks a (hopefully) obscure word from the dictionary of which nobody in the group knows the meaning. Other players write down a made-up definition. The one who picked then reads the submitted definitions out loud, mixing in the real definition. Everyone then guesses. You get one point if you guess the right definition and you get one point for every person. who picks your made-up definition.

    My brothers hated playing with my dad and me because between the two of us one would recognize and know the definition of the obscure word about 85% of the time.

    I found out this week where the famous "A Warehouse" or "The Warehouse," where so many rock bands played between 1970 and 1982, was once located. It's long gone. A wall separates the street from the "Clarence Henry Expressway," a riverfront passage for railroad tracks and for trucks to load from ships.

    118 Speaking of Wordling -

    We have the best time when everyone gets together for Christmas or Thanksgiving or whenever playing-

    "Wise and Otherwise"

    It's a game where you get the first or last half of a famous folk saying from some foreign country. The players fill in their version of the completed folk saying, then the leader for that turn mixes up the "sayings" along with the real one and reads them out loud. Points are given when your version fools someone.

    It's great fun and we laugh a lot playing it.


    Another great word game is-

    "Pass the Bomb"

    where you set the "bomb" ticking and pass it around until it "explodes". You can't pass the bomb until you come up with a word which uses the word fragment on the drawn card.

    Stupidly simple but just hilarious as people get flustered and miss words. Maybe hard to find as it's an older one.

    Both are great after dinner games.

    Sage indeed. Yes, something small and discreet on a woman, on ankle, instep, or just above the bikini line, can be intriguing. If she inks up her neck and throat, she's asking for trouble.

    Fair enough. Don't confuse superficial shallowness with callousness. I'm guilty of the former.

    I *have* heard from an inked up person that getting tatts is addictive.

    Since I've heard from multiple sources that the process is painful, I just figured that it is a form of masochism. I have no personal experience.

    When I was doing some research for a story, I ran across a blog from a Finnish woman named Varpu. On her blog she says that close family members can be naked in the sauna, but strangers would wear towels or robes. Bathing suits, she says, often give off chemicals in the heat. This is unpleasant for both the wearer and the observers.

    It's clear that the GOPe is lining up behind Bloomie. And why not? He's got all the cards in his hand: big money, big tech, big government, and fathomless contempt for us deplorables, who merely fight his wars and grow his food and build his buildings. Yes, it should be an interesting election. But one thing is clear: this contest isn't about race, or gender, or sexual orientation - it's about class, and the sooner everybody realizes this, the better.

    Posted by: Wut at February 22, 2020 10:18 AM (BIGfR)

    277 Just perused this morning's Wall Street Journal. Peggy Noonan is just
    about coming into her panties over the Democratic debate, calls it the
    "best in decades". (Talk about damning with faint praise.) And there's a
    long interview with Clint Eastwood, about what a swell guy Bloomberg
    is.

    It's clear that the GOPe is lining up behind Bloomie.




    Yes, the RINOs I know, who voted for Hillary or didn't vote for president in 2016, will vote for Bloomers but not Sanders. Former Goldman Sachs CEO and big time Dem supporter Lloyd Blankfein said that if Sanders is the nominee he would seriously have to consider voting for Trump. I think Sanders as the nominee causes a bigger rift in the Dem party now and keeps the suburban squishes at home

    312 The dude that is looking for a girlfriend and willing to pay for one is interesting.

    The other night I was talking with the girl I am currently seeing and we were discussing online dating. I took the position that it was mostly people over representing themselves and that women preferred a man that would lie to them. She, of course, said that the opposite was true, that the most valued quality on a man was honesty.

    So I bet her a steak dinner that I could create and honest profile on a dating site and that no one would "like" it or message it in a months time.

    The profile I submitted reads as follows:

    I'm a mediocre catch.

    No real motivation in life, few accomplishments, average looking on my best day, pretty sour attitude towards a lot of things.

    I yell at the television sometimes, but not during ballgames, just because I'm irritable. Pretty much hate doing housework.

    I have to be reminded of important dates and events two or three times. I snore quite a bit. I've been described by friends as pessimistic, cynical and inappropriate.

    I'm not much of a conversationalist, except when I've been drinking, but then I'll probably say things you'd rather not hear.

    I've got an inordinate amount of body hair in all the wrong places. If I take off my shirt, I look like I'm still wearing a sweater.

    Overall, I'd say I pretty much suck.

    I'm looking for a really superficially hot younger blonde chick that has a really high libido, hopefully one that is kind of stupid and just needs to latch on to any dude that can keep a roof over her head.

    If you might be that woman, hit me up!

    The local NPR station was trying to guilt trip Republicans who would dare to vote in the Democrat primary. It isn't the "honest" thing to do. " President Trump won't come here for a rally unless he knows he has support, and if you vote in the Dem primary, there will be even less visible support for the Pres." " It pollutes the process."

    The reason no woman would want to date your profile is NOT because you're mediocre and actually kind of a jerk, it's because HE thinks he's a loser.

    If he had any confidence, even with all those otherwise negative qualities, there's somebody out there who would find him attractive.

    Women will date guys who aren't good looking. They won't date a guy with no self confidence, and no motivation to improve.

    354 Holder has a new, cunning plan

    18 years is enough for an unelected official - Supreme Court justice - wielding such power. Each president gets two picks which will decrease the political pressure in confirmation. Can be done by statute. Ask each candidate their position - including Trump. Reform is necessary

    Now, I'm not completely in disagreement with the first part: 18 years is a long time in office and would basically clear out most of the detritus before they became too decrepit to do their job. However, I'd instead put an upper limit on it, something like "mandatory retirement at 78 years" or something like that.

    Of course Thomas is over 18 years, and both Alito and Roberts are at 14 years, so you can see what Holder has in mind here.

    The second part is just a transparent attempt to stop Trump from replacing any more judges, of which he could easily replace 3 in the next term.

    And the last one is just... this was the Attorney General? The top lawyer in the USA? And he thinks congress can just pass a law to make constitutional changes??

    25 years later, whenever my wife wants a laugh, she brings up the time she bought some expensive flea medicine for SIL's dogs. On the way to drop it off, we stopped at a roadside set of dumpsters to get rid of some trash.

    Well we start to pull back onto the road when she says she can't find the damn medicine. We look in the truck under the seats, between the seats, behind the seats and can't find it anywhere. So wife thinks it accidentally got thrown in the dumpster. Stuff was expensive and SIL had already paid us for it.

    I was volunteered to dive in the dumpster to find it. I was frantically pulling and pushing trash aside looking for it. Somebody else before us had dumped their old transmission in the dumpster and that grease and crap got all over me. I finally gave up and got back in the truck.

    I told her...Well I guess we'll just have to pay her back. So we started to turn back on the road when wife flips down the visor because the sun was in her eyes and there was the box of flea medicine, fell right in her lap. Man, I was hot!

They all ended up growing beyond 6 feet tall and played sports year-round throughout their school years. Consequently, most of our home-made cookies have always been the "drop" or "bar" variety -- with the exception of their favorite Christmas Snowballs (aka Russian tea cookies).

    Bloomberg ... even easier to beat and the upshot is that it could very well break the democratic party. Stealing it form plurality delegate winner Sanders would cause the rapid left to bolt the party. But wining house would be harder.

    Eastwood's an old guy. Old people remember when being a Rockefeller Republican was a thing.

    Now, I'm not going to argue it was a good thing, but before this current scrum we're having as a nation, parties like the Republicans used to have knock down drag out fights among themselves, to see which faction had the upper hand. Sometimes the Rockefeller Republicans won, sometimes they didn't.

    Guys like Eastwood, who was once a mayor out there in Californica, would easily fall into the Rockefeller camp.

    I suspect there are lots of them out there who don't care much for this Trump fellow, and it has nothing... NOTHING to do with them being secret commies or whatever. They're just the faction of the R party that isn't in power right now.

    Bloomberg is obviously more of a Rockefeller Republican than he is a modern Democrat. I suspect Bloomberg would get a LOT of crossover vote.. if he was nominated. Would probably lose just as many if not more traditional Dems, but if there are longtime Republicans hoping for Trump's defeat, Bloomberg might look like their guy.

    The greats like Shakespeare and Aristophanes made vulgar jokes and they've survived for hundreds of years.

    It was rambunctious; a door was damaged, but we all survived. And, Y2K!

    Fun part, all those kids have been spectacularly successful. The "worst" of them, who inherited alcoholism so does not drive, works for a specialty metal finisher and heads up a crew there. Good guy to know. The others, a national-level broadcaster, couple of EE's, two IT managers for major institutions, and a now-retired NFL lineman.

    446 RE: Paper ballots. Nothing wrong with paper.

    Utah election auditor apparently thinks she is smarter than the MIT researchers, knows nothing about computer security, and can't think outside of the box, but is confident the benefits outweigh the risks.

    From https://tinyurl.com/uhp7jnl
    ====================
    But Amelia Powers Gardner, a Utah County, Utah, election auditor who supervised her county's rollout of the Voatz system for disabled voters and service members deployed overseas, told CoinDesk that at least some of the bugs the researchers found cannot be exploited in practice.

    "[The researchers] weren't able to substantiate these claims because they were never able to actually connect to the Voatz server," Powers Gardner said. "So in theory they claim that they may have been able to do these things, and only on the Android version, not the Apple version."

    She said the MIT researchers' effort comes from "what ifs, and perhaps, and maybes that, frankly, just haven't panned out," and that the app had since been patched.

    For Powers Gardner, Voatz's benefits far outweigh any security risks. She said the software is a far better alternative for otherwise disenfranchised voting groups than the current technological solution: email.

    We read a lot into the work of people we like. Many of Eastwood's plots were nowhere near as "conservative" as we let on -- I'd hold out Gran Torino as an example, but there are many others, plus the monkey, and, he cannot sing. So, we tend to back off, or make excuses, or just not believe it when he puts his foot down hard right in the poo. We are always up for a fight, either damn way.
    I read the Tunku interview this morning, and it does not make any sense at all. It really does look like he just typed in an extra line at the end, as the jokes go. And that makes me wonder what old Eastwood was up to. See, I'm as bad as the restayaz.

    First off, this is a reported conversation in the back of a car with a WaPo reporter, it's not an endorsement. They were shooting the shit and he didn't diss Trump he just said the tweets were unfortunate.

    And he kind of likes Mike. Why not, Clint was also a mayor and thinks that mayoring is like presidenting and is good training. He may not follow every political zit the way we do. He's 90 and has an actual life.

    So he says something vague in a car to an unreliable reporter (WaPo, res ipsa loquitor) and you assclowns are ready to throw Dirty Josie Unforgiven under the Gran Torino?

    I had to click on that, since I know Loftus is actually on the more right-hand side of the political divide and once said that he was told his idea for a sitcom was wonderful, but because it slammed the right and the left, it would never be greenlighted.

    As far as I can see, Vic, the story actually says that Loftus says people who criticize Trump for praising GWTW are suffering from "end-stage Trump Derangement Syndrome." He isn't slamming Trump.

    Yes.

    They are basically at their best in 5th grade.

    When each one of my daughters got into 5th grade, my wife and I looked at each other and said "Okay, we raised *this one* right. Look how calm and responsible she is!"

    And then middle school proved us wrong.

    They don't get back to that level of maturity until their 20s.

    The last time I rode a gayhound was in 1979. I was working at the Sears and could not get off until day before Christmas. I was going from Dallas to Shreveport. First thing is some guys were harassing a blind girl so I went and sat by her telling them to fuck off. She got off in Longview I think. Bus quit about 2 miles from station. So I grabbed my backpack and started walking.

    I walked up to my dads car and got in. They (dad, cousin and uncle) were all laughing as my cous had said hey look who is walking up the road and dad and uncle thot is was a joke.

    I went to a Catholic Grammar School for 8 years.

    There were sixty some kids in my class, mostly girls, mebbe 18 boys.

    The girls were quiet, polite, 'bout what you'd expect of them

    We get to the 6th grade, and a new boy transfers in mid-year. And the girls thought he was THE ONE !
    (I thought there were boys already in the class that were better looking, but hey, what do I know.)

    After his first day of class, he leaves, and ALL of the girls hung around and took turns sitting in his seat, and rubbing their bums on it and giggling and squealing.

    No; I wouldn't have known a LA Ram from a Detroit Lion at that age. I still don't. Are they winners-is that why they're fearsome? These girls used to send me nasty notes and corner me at the lockers. I guess I was fortunate that I didn't grow up in the computer age or they would have been attacking me over social media. 7th and 8th grade girls can be the worst!

    171 it'd be that Eastwood still has movies he wants to make but with his subjects and at his age, it's hard to find backers.

    Probably Micro Bloomberg offered to bankroll his next 3-4 films.

    Posted by: naturalfake at February 22, 2020 07:33 AM (z0XD

    If true, very sad.

    But unlikely. Eastwood is tight with studios and will not have problems with financing -- unless he starts straying so far into un-PC world as to become intolerable. But in that case, Bloomberg wouldn't finance him either.

    Eastwood has simply never politically unequivocal, and probably is losing a certain acuity with age.

    Now, that I think about it-

    Common epidemiological practice and common sense went out the window with the AIDS/HIV epidemic.

    And it's been that way ever since.

    Quarantine is primary weapon number one in the battle against an incurable disease that's spreading.

    When Ebola broke out in Africa a couple of years ago, the CDC could hardly wait to dump patients in the US.

    Same with that mysterious polio like virus that was crippling kids during Obama's reign of terror.

    Quarantine and isolate? Stop bringing in diseased illegal aliens?

    Nope. Open the food gates.

    So, bringing Chinese Murder Virus into the US?

    But, of course!


    Probably quarantine at Gitmo or maybe the Aleutians would've been a much better idea. Or leaving them in place.

    224 I'm wondering if Eastwood voted for Trump over Cankles in '16. And if Blooms doesn't get the nomination, who will he vote for then? He must really dislike Donald Trump, which is a freaking shame considering all of the great things Trump has been doing for everybody. You'd think it'd be easy to see, but maybe "mean" words negate it all. I'm sorely disappointed in Eastwood as I thought he was more attuned to this country's tenuous grip on its founding Constitution and all. I get it. He never was Rush Limbaugh conservative. Still, I thought he understood more than he apparently does. My bad.

    And he kind of likes Mike. Why not, Clint was also a mayor and thinks that mayoring is like presidenting and is good training. He may not follow every political zit the way we do. He's 90 and has an actual life.

    357 SAUERBRATEN

    Marinade: Combine 1 1/2 cups water; 1 1/2 cups red wine vinegar; 2 medium onions, sliced; 1 lemon, sliced; 12 whole cloves; 6 whole black peppercorns, crushed; 4 bay leaves, crushed; 1 tablespoon sugar; 1 tablespoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger.

    1 4-pound boneless beef round rump roast
    2 tablespoons cooking oil
    1/2 cup chopped onion
    1/2 cup chopped carrot
    1/4 cup chopped celery
    1 cup crushed gingersnaps

    Prepare marinade. Place meat in a plastic bag; set in a shallow pan. Pour marinade over meat; close bag. Refrigerate 72 hours, turning meat occasionally. Remove meat; pat excess moisture from meat. Strain marinade; set aside. In a Dutch oven brown meat on all sides in hot oil. Drain off fat. Add reserved marinade, chopped onion, carrot, and celery. Cover; simmer about 2 hours or until meat is tender. Transfer meat to a platter, keep warm. Reserve 2 cups cooking liquid and vegetables in Dutch oven (you can put this in a blender first to puree the veggies). Stir in gingersnaps and 2/3 cup water. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Serve with meat and spaetzle. Serves 12.

    I'm battling Fidelity this year. Could not find an itemized list that I thought should be in the statement, so I called the help desk.* Once I got to a very nice lady and explained the problem, she said "Oh you just need to look at page 4 of that statement."
    I said in a calm voice, "Well I am looking at page 4, and it says "This page intentionally left blank!'"
    She said "Oops, oopsie, lets look on-line!"
    After some navigation through the web site, we found the form, and sure enough there was the information I needed, just not in the printed official from Fidelity.
    I asked for a revised hard copy!



    *Pro-tip, I learned that if you curse at the Fidelity automated operator/screener long and hard enough it will route you to an actual person.

Stir in 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar, 1/4 cup water, 1 1/4 teaspoons salt, 1/2 to 1 teaspoon caraway seed, and dash pepper. Add 4 cups shredded red cabbage and 2 cups cubed unpeeled apple, stirring to coat. Cover and cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. For crisp cabbage, cook 15 minutes; for tender cabbage, cook about 30 minutes. Makes 5 or 6 servings.

    It's times like this that I think I made a judgment error in getting out of the Civil Service. My honesty would have prevented my from rising very far, but I'd have been completely immune from being fired for treachery or incompetence!

    And I could have retired with a sweet pension, good medical insurance, and lived next to Lois Lerner!

    We can do etymology behind his back. "Stal", archaic German for steel. "Wart", the Dutch equivalent of "Wort", an intermediate product of beer production.

    Stalwart, the courage that comes from beer.

    That's why I think the Dim Elite will engineer a Brokered Convention, and then sp[ring somebody on us,

    who they can use like an Obama Blank Slate.

    That's their best option and probably why they brought in the Superdelegates after the first vote.

    They might go for someone who is part of a big contingent of their donating donors-

    Maybe Buttigieg cuz teh Gheys give a lot of moolah to the Dims. A lot.

    Or Hillary! or Warren for the Crazy Cat Lady Contingent cuz they also give a lot of bucks.

    Then they can sigh and say "we tried but (fill in the Blank) Americans aren't ready for a (fill in the blank President)."

    Bu-u-u-ut, I think it'll be somebody new or newish who's THE GREATEST AND MOST WONDERFUL AND WISE AND SPIRITUAL HUMAN BIENG EVAH AND WE'RE SO LUCKY TO HAVE THEM RUN FOR PRESIDENT!!!!!11111!!!!!!

    The only cookies Mom "made" when I was growing up were the Pillsbury frozen dough chocolate chip cookies. Which used to be a better bargain than now; each slice from the roll was supposed to be cut in quarters, and each quarter made a complete decent-sized cookie.

    Otherwise it was Oreos or other Nabisco cookies.

I hope it takes care of the rest of the symptoms, and I can avoid another surgery. Things are looking up. I need to drop a few pounds to take some of the pressure off of my back. It's tough to do so without exercise, and my diet is basically whatever takes the least amount of effort. The boy/man is getting some cooking lessons out of the deal. He is enjoying it. So, I am counting that as a win.

    A very fair argument, one I contemplated making, but due to brevity, I didn't.

    I could have also pointed out that she was portrayed as a simpleton taken advantage of by Josey after rescuing her from Mexican slavers, and left that part out too.

    Watch the whole movie, The Outlaw Josey Wales, if you want ALL the context. I highly recommend the movie.

    PS -- It shows The Union as a buncha unprincipled cocksuckers. Let's not forget that part of the movie.

    Noting the former congressman’s deep, unwavering commitment to shying away from every one of his civic responsibilities, the Heritage Foundation lauded Paul Ryan Thursday for inspiring millions of young gutless fucking cowards to take on leadership roles. “Thank you, Mr. Ryan, for showing countless milquetoast little weaklings across the United States that if they want a place in politics, they can have it,” said Heritage Foundation spokesperson Katherine Primm, adding that she was grateful so many young candy-ass pushovers had the chance to see someone just like them not just get elected but also become speaker of the House.

    My Little Pony To Children: Marxism Is Not Magic


    My Darling Margaret,

    As the bitter war against the Collectivists enters its third year, I have to tell you that spirits have been quite low on here in our winter camps. The news that the Virginia and North Carolina militias were repulsed from the capital at Alexandria last month dealt a bitter blow to our hopes of finally ending this madness. All of that changed yesterday when the entire camp was electrified with the most astounding news. After months of negotiations, the Bronies have entered the conflict on our side! I do not believe that the totalitarian forces, who are surely as war-weary and worn out as we, will be able to resist the coming onslaught of rainbows and unicorns. With the grace of God and a dash of freedom's luck, we will crush the enemy and I will return to where I long to be – in the warm embrace of your loving arms – before the blossoms appear on the apple trees that line Hanged Man Creek. I remain,

    Your loving husband,

    35 Yes, the Bernie Bros are headed for heartbreak again.

    Bernie is a con-man looking for another pay-off like last time.

    When it comes time to chose a candy date at the Dem convention he'll 'reluctantly' drop out because of heart trouble and endorse whomever pays him.

    It wouldn't surprise me if his heart trouble is a ruse concocted for this.

    36 That snippet about the Orioles having braille on their uniforms reminded me of something I saw in the airport in Grand Forks, ND. The slot at the car-rental desk for dropping off the key for your rental car was labelled in the usual way - and also in braille. Think about that: a braille label on the slot where you drop off a car key. Either North Dakota is extremely lax about handing out driver's licenses, or someone got carried away on the inclusiveness thing. Or, most likely, some bureaucrat mandated that *everything* be labeled in braille, regardless of whether it makes sense.

    As for blind people: Thank you, Baltimore Orioles, but I'm aware that there are blind people in the world. Now what do you want me to do?

    73 Busy week, so I have no idea if it's been mentioned or not, but the pro-2A crowd in Virginia is taking things to the next level.

    https://tinyurl.com/uzc3a9s

    And from what I hear, even more counties than those are working to form militias independent of the state government. There's also talk of members compensating the sheriffs for the lack of a pay raise (probably as retaliation for so many of them backing the sanctuary movement), which is a good first step towards creating a shadow government.

    106 39 I watched the "Miracle on Ice" on tape delay, like most Americans. I knew something was different because I watched the late great Jim McKay tee it up.

    At this point, the only thing that could possibly stop Trump from being reelected is coronavirus.

    An election campaign with a massive pandemic hitting the United States, with thousands dead, millions sick, large gatherings prohibited, and the economy tanking, would not be good for the incumbent.

    So, it is reasonable to assume that the Deep State will do everything possible to bring coronavirus here, because OrangeManBad.

    199 164 President Trump grew furious with senior advisers this week over a decision to allow 14 Americans who tested positive for coronavirus to return to the United States from Japan after being assured that infected patients would remain in quarantine overseas, according to administration officials.

    At this point, the only thing that could possibly stop Trump from being reelected is coronavirus.

    An election campaign with a massive pandemic hitting the United States, with thousands dead, millions sick, large gatherings prohibited, and the economy tanking, would not be good for the incumbent.

    So, it is reasonable to assume that the Deep State will do everything possible to bring coronavirus here, because OrangeManBad.

    262 Long time ago, I was one of those designated ConElRad officials, on the planning committee for the end of the world. The military took it in stride; the Military Governor for our State was a career Warrant Officer in the USAR who'd had the assignment devolved onto him. Laziest Hitler ever. Post Office was all like, whatever, we've been around and seen it before. Various other organizations ranged from deer-in-headlights "I'll just sit on the porch and watch the cloud go up" to a sort of Barney Fife bug-eye routine.


    My takeaway was that, for all of the departments and tinhorn petty tyrants with wet dreams of busting your door down in the middle of the night, when it actually came to something icky like a Pelvic Inflammatory Disease outbreak, nobody in those naval-titled uniformed services had the nads to wave a car down and ask for ID.

    287 The Nazis were Nationalists.

    I see what you're getting at, and I'm not calling you full of anything. In essence you're perfectly right, but there was one other thing going on.

    Just as Napoleon was nationalist-French but also had the "continental system," during the brief happy time when Germany first seized most of the known world, they got busy selling a notion of how everybody was going to get along in this new Reich. France and Belgium, for instance, were not going to be just rolled under to become provinces. There really was going to be a New Order, and plenty of French were glad to see it because it wasn't dominated by their old friends the Russians and the lame-ass world commune.
    But there defintely was an internationalist tinge to the Reich.
    A friend who runs a WWII museum in Belgium told me the German soldiers didn't become movie-grade monsters until after D-Day. They used to share their chocolate with the kids, just like GI's did. OK, not the SS.

    313 @296 - let me tell you the story of Tiny Hobo.

    I was living elsewhere, and when I went to check the back yard, there was a brief glimpse of a CREATURE fleeing into the night.

    I put out some cat snax. And she ate them.

    That was my mistake. Because when I went out the next night, to check on things, she was there...loudly demanding snax.

    And I gave her some. I started to give her regular cat food, and she thought, yeah, this is regular, I want more.

    So, she started showing up in the day time, demanding snax, and she let me pick her up and pet her (while demanding snax) and purred.

    At the time, Leela (my cat, Very First Pet Thread Pic) was aging, so I didn't want a competitor to her (though I brought Tiny Hobo inside once, and Leela didn't seem to care).

    A couple of days later, Tiny Hobo didn't appear. I thought, great, someone adopted her.

    A couple of days after that, she re-appeared. I fed her, hugged her, and petted her. She did not appear after that.

    I still think someone adopted her. She was very affectionate and personable, aside from Talking ALL the Time.

    Anyway, that's the story of Tiny Hobo. If you think you've heard the last of her, well, I may just post this on the pet thread.

    Good vibes to all.

    From the ever-reliable Wiki (which appears to be okay for sports stuff):

    In the 1989-90 season, mainly due to perestroika in the USSR, Soviet authorities permitted six 1980 Olympians -- Helmuts Balderis, Viacheslav Fetisov, Alexei Kasatonov, Vladimir Krutov, Sergei Makarov, and Sergei Starikov -- to join NHL clubs. . . ."

    I'll answer myself to avenge RickZ's honor. 1980's USSR team, which some say is the best international team ever put on the ice, had 5 players from my count who made to to the NHL, so it's very possible I can't count properly and it was 6. The 1984 Olympic team definitely had that many, most of whom had played in 1980. The 1987 Canada Cup team I mentioned was loaded with players who made it to the NHL.

    338 Trivia question what's a sand boy and why is he happy?

    Posted by: NZFrank with a M2 at February 22, 2020 12:04 AM (tAuzy)


    I cheated and search engined the phrase, never having heard it before.

    It was used in one Dickens novel (which I did not read). So I know what they are, but I still don't know why they're happy. My best guess is the sand was used for flooring in pubs to absorb spitting and the 'sand boys' (men) selling that sand were often paid for their sand in spirits, making them happy. Is that right?

    I know he was too old for it when the time came; I've wondered if he would have if he had been given the chance even around 1984 or 85.

    I think part of the problem with naming a "best goalie ever" in the NHL is that the NHL has changed so much over the years in the equipment department (not to mention the size of the players themselves). There were plenty of good ones like Hall, Plante, and Vezina, for example. Going to be flippant here, but transport Patrick Roy back to the days of a facemask at best and before banana blades were banned and he'd probably be soiling his pants.

    If you get a blister under the nail, and it becomes very swollen and painful, there is one thing you can do to obtain instant relief. Obtain a sewing needle, or even a thin nail, and heat it red hot in the flame of a torch, and use the red hot needle to burn a hole in the nail. There are no nerve endings in the nail, or the bubble of blood under it, so you will not cause any pain. Once the needle hits the blood, it is quenched cold, so even if you push far enough to touch the nail bed, the needle won't burn sensitive tissue.

    Had this done to me by a doctor after I dropped a transmission on my big toe. Instant relief from the pressure of the blister. Also a small fountain of blood, but that blood was already "out of circulation".

    405 Greyhound is a sad and broken remnant of the network it used to be.
    They had an awful comeuppance for a decade or so. Drivers' strikes, several bankruptcies, a takeover...

    If you had invested in the early days, your monehy would have been lost a long time ago.


    They were held up as big bad bogeymen back during the desegregation struggles. No doubt their wokeness on this later, quasi-racial issue stems from the drubbing they took back then. But they just can't win.

    Some modern goalies you could throw back in time and they'd be decent, if not successful, would be ones like Billy Smith and Ron Hextall. They could more than handle themselves in the high stick-swinging days of yore.

    426 Which reminds me of a guy in college. I studied printing (graphic communications) at Cal Poly. We had all sorts of working printing presses, large and small, as well as industrial paper cutters, binding machines, etc. All of this equipment was used by students in the lab classes.

    It was also used by the student-run printing company, of which I was the pre-press manager. Our crew would print the daily newspaper, class schedules, commencement programs, and all sorts of stuff for the school. We worked after class hours, usually into the night.

    One of the guys was using the huge (36", IIRC) guillotine paper cutter to cut down big stacks of paper. The dimensions were getting a bit small, and positioning them was getting tricky, so he went behind the cutter to hold the stack of paper in place while he had another guy press the two buttons on the front of the cutter to initiate the cut (there are two buttons for a reason)...

    Now, you're probably thinking he's gonna get something chopped off, but noooooo... he got his middle and ring finger stuck under the 5,000+ psi clamp that comes down before the blade. Smashed his finger tips like ripe cherry tomatoes. Brutal.

    Doctors were able to save his fingers, which is fortunate because it wouldn't have been as fun ridiculing him for the next couple of months if he had lost them.

    Hextall would definitely be swinging his stick right along with them.

    One of the reasons I'm not sold on Roy being the best ever is the fact that he was the impetus to the NHL having to regulate the size of goalie equipment. Look at him in 1986 and then look at him in 1993.

But Wolverhamton done good with some very good goals; they pretty much wrapped up the tie as it will be hard for Espanyol to come back from an 0-4 deficit, not impossible as they'll be at home but damn difficult.

    The Garden had a 'ROO-AHH' chant that would get going when Les Habs visited. Name also lent itself to a chant.

    By far the funniest chant I ever heard at the Garden was directed towards Dino Ciccarelli. He did something one game, got whistled for a penalty and lowered his hockey shorts and bent over, showing his ass towards the ref in protest. Whenever his team played thereafter, the sing-song 'Drop Your Drawers, Dino, Drop-Your-Drawers' would echo down from the stands; it was an instant classic.

    473 Spokane woke city officials have been barking about this for the last year. Normally they conduct their searches at the depot. Solution, starting stopping the buses on the highways take s couple hours to process each stop.

    A Libyan "comedian" didn't bother to take his immigration papers with him (a legal requirement) to a gig in Spokane, and didn't like being questioned at the Greyhound station returning to Portland, and screamed about it on Twitter.

    He told the Portland alt-weekly that he was looking forward to getting his US citizenship, so he could visit his family in Libya. The basis for his asylum claim is that he fled Libya in fear of his life, and would be killed if he had to return to Libya.

    Part of his "comedy" routine is complaining that ICE does not simply take his asylum claim at face value, but questions whether he is really in fear of his life if he has to go back to Libya.

    When my dad first moved in with us I often ended up sleeping (or not sleeping) in the chair next to him. The local sports/weather channel had rugby on in the very early morning. Comfused the heck out of my dad. Thought it was football (American) but couldn't figure out why they weren't wearing helmets. Always thought the refs stunk because they wouldn't break up the scrums. Didn't try very hard to explain. He did enjoy it. Used to say "that's the way we used to play the game!"

I could see it being a threat to the general election itself but unless people are stupid enough to think PDT was responsible in what would arguably be a world wide pandemic I don't see a shift to a group of people who have been demonstrating a lack of competence, leadership and ability to not FU everything they touch.

    490 Dino Ciccarelli. There's a blast from the past. Fun player to watch, unpredictable. And the kind (small) not much in the NHL any more.

    But that reminds me of his more idiosyncratic paisan, Al Iafrate. Lanky, huge, volatile, perhaps not all there. Explosive skater, and I think he won a slapshot skills competition once too.

    But he's seared, seared into my memory and hockey idiom for his signature move - skating the puck out through the slot - even the crease - when he deemed it necessary. Goalies, of course, practically fainted when he did it - very risky move, against all the norms and standards for a defenseman.

    "Iafrate through the crease".

    One time my team had done the deal where we bought 100 tickets to a Caps game, and so were able to play a scrimmage against one our house league opponents at the Cap Center just before a Caps game. As we came off the ice, going to our locker room (NOT as nice as the pro locker rooms, of course), there was Iafrate.

    Sitting on a folding chair, right up against the glass.

    In his jockstrap/with cup. No shirt.

    500 10/17/2016
    --------------------------------------Belmonte added that most losers of close presidential elections have conceded defeat and called for the nation to unify, which has helped to maintain public faith in the system.

    In 1877, Democrat Samuel Tilden gave a speech in which he continued to claim that he was the rightful winner of the previous year's election, but he nonetheless called on his supporters to "be of good cheer," adding: "The Republic will survive."
    [Some Trump Supporters Demanding 'Revolution' If He Doesn't Win]

    Still, Belmonte said, some of them went on to refer to Tilden's opponent, President Rutherford B. Hayes," as "Rutherford B. Fraud."

    More recent losers of disputed elections have been even clearer. Richard Nixon pledged his "wholehearted support" for John F. Kennedy in 1960, even as some Nixon supporters alleged fraud by Democrats in crucial Illinois.

    In 2000, Vice President Al Gore - who had won the popular vote and might have won a majority of electoral votes were it not for a purge of Florida's voter rolls while opponent's brother was governor - promised to "bring Americans together" after the Supreme Court decided the election for George W. Bush.

    Whether Trump would respond to defeat in the same way is very much an open question. He pledged at the first presidential debate that he'd "absolutely" support Clinton if she won. But he has since hedged, telling The New York Times later that week: "We're going to have to see. We're going to see what happens."

    That has some election experts worrying that America's long tradition of peacefully transferring power could be at risk.

    "One of the things we take for granted is that, even in tumultuous times when elections are hard fought, the losers concede the election and embrace the process, even if things did not go well," the election law scholar Rick Hasen, a professor of law and political science at the University of California-Irvine, wrote after Trump's "we're going to have to see" comments.

    "Donald Trump threatens this peace," Hasen wrote.

Of course I'm somewhere in between a hillbilly and a hick, and I only have 2 college degrees so my thought that 3 years of unlawful interference which has caused serious damage to the underlying structure of this country shouldn't be any cause for caution or concern by PDT. It's the self righteous arrogance that irritates me the most.

    I only watch some of the playoffs because my friend runs a hockey playoff pool; he's done that for over 30 years. I've won the thing twice ($1,600 and $850; prize pool depends on the number of entries), so I keep playing. I've made more off that hockey pool, including losses, than I've ever made at a casino or in a lottery. So if I'm still in the running in the semis or finals I'll watch.

    The majority of the people in the pool were guys and some of them were not happy about losing to a girl. One person I knew who knew one of the guys who didn't like me would taunt him about it.

    Don't get me wrong I'm all for trash talking and a little nose rubbing. Being one of those with only one stable chromosome, I get the "you lost to a girl "?. Met my wife playing basketball. We run a program every year for elementary school age kids. Still play a little one on one. In 38 years I've beat here once. Once. She had a vision issue so I kicked her butt.

    648 What happened to the gardening thread? This is some kind of Frankenstein thread.
    Anyway, one of the guys who carried that vet (the bearded one, Jason) was on the RedPill78 webcast last night. He had changed his shirt to a Q shirt (which he'd smuggled in) after carrying that vet. When he was invited to sit behind Trump, a sad lady told him he wouldn't be able to wear the Q shirt so prominently. He said no problem, as he still had his Q tattoo, which would be visible on his right arm every time he cheered.
    Fox and Friends had approached him to appear on the show, but he wasn't interested.

    663 There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone.

    Sundown Joe Biden: I Won't Serve a Second Term If I Lose Mental Acuity

    Second term?

    If you lose mental acuity?

    Dude your neurological state is already "Sub-Potato."


    "Look, I guarantee you this: if anything changed in my health making incapable for me to fully exert all the energy and mental acuity that was needed to be done, I give you my word I would not run again," Biden, 77, told a CNN town hall, blood spraying freely from his fucked-up eyeball.

    That last clause was a Trumpy Lie.

    I am not surprised by much, but I am surprised at how so many people really believe that Russia wants Trump. It is the most ignorant idea I can imagine.

    Now I know a lot are just saying this, and a lot are too stupid to put on their own pants, but You must have a brain made of pay-doh to work in intelligence, and be briefing the Congress, and to say anything so foolish.

    I mean, even if we assume the "US officials" are sincere and informed, here's how I imagine the meeting with Bernie went:

    Senator Sanders, we believe there are bad actors out there, online, who are obnoxious, and rude, and threatening who are posing as your most ardent supporters and are really Russian agents.

    Meanwhile, Bernie sitting there thinking, um, yeah, these ARE my supporters.

    I visited the USSR in the 80s, and it sucked donkey dick. It was terrible. Nothing worked, shops had bugger-all for sale, it was basically Mexico with nuclear weapons.

    Think's he's riding real high, but he's sealed his fate
    Sundown, you better take care
    Warren's sending your head right back to Delaware
    Sundown, you're talking out there
    But we all know your campaign is going nowhere

    You were leading in the standings, but that's come and gone
    Now you're fading real fast and your voters moved on
    Sometimes, I think it's a shame
    You can't see when you're runnin' that you're comin' up lame
    Sometimes, I think it's a shame
    You're a three time loser, in the end that's your fame

    Joe Biden the the Lloyd Bridge character from the Hot Shots movies. In fact if you put up quotes from that character they would indistinguishable from what Biden would say

    From what I can tell, the only candidate that has a prayer of damaging Trump in the slightest is SMOD, and even that's iffy: you know, Space Force.

    I'll up you SARS, although the jury's out on that.

    Trump's gonna roger China's economy from behind. We have manufacturing capability again, and as China wanes, the US will be poised to fill the gap.

    Unless we elect a communist, of course. And by Communist, I mean Democrat.
