18 All Your Speech Are Belong To Us This part of the 1st Amendment seems rather straightforward. The government can’t interfere with a persons right to speak freely, or communicate his or her thoughts. While there might be consequences such as with slander or incitement to violence, those are consequences, not prior restraint. More: http://politicalhat.com/?p=5657

29 Reason I ask, is that this Benghazi stuff is going to make him FLUSH with the prospect of usurping Hillary for 2016. He's going to do something stupid. I can feel it.

35 I find it amusing that Taco Bell existed in 1969. I'm not sure why. I guess Taco Bell just seems like one of those bad ideas that came about in the 80s.

So this story, I think, will grab you especially. My dad has destroyed one of his hips and the other isn't far behind. He's been delaying hip surgery for like two years. Finally got to where he couldn't delay. So he schedules surgery. But these things don't happen quickly. Meanwhile, he's in serious serious pain but refuses pain pills because he's scared to death of the addiction. The surgeon's office's suggestion? 3 oz of irish whiskey and a joint every night about an hour before he's ready for bed.

83 Okay, so I mentioned the stat yesterday that only 3 times has an NHL team come from an 0-3 series deficit to win it (the Kings have a chance to do so tonight). Well, going to the other two major sports leagues that have 7-game series (MLB and NBA), only *once* in either has happened in history, the Yankees' epic collapse to the Red Sox in 2004. And that's it. 4 times in three sports, pending tonight.

Oh crap, it's on at the same time as The Vikings. _____ While I would love to be at the Bell Centre (been there twice) or TD Garden (on the bucket list), I can't imagine the cost for a ticket for this series, especially for the online/scalper market. I've been to a Stanley Cup finals game at the old Forum-the one with all the ghosts. I saw the Habs play the Blackhawks. That trip was also my introduction to beer sold in quart bottles.

208 Weed is like anything else, the more you smoke the more tolerance you get. That having been said most of the smoke now is better than back in the eighties. Fewer seeds, better buzz, better taste. A 1/4 of decent weed 30 years ago cost about 35 bucks. A 1/4 of better weed today costs about 35 bucks.

That is what the war on drugs has given us--better, cheaper pot.

Or so I've been told.

When I was in college, a High School friend gave me a baggie of stuff that had randomly sprouted in the closet-sized backyard of his condo. Back at the University of Casual Sun-Bathing there came a day when the oh-so-cool were doing "tastings" of various flavors, and I contributed some of my stash.


It was received generally well, and everyone was going, "Good stuff.... Is that Hawaiian? Is that from Humboldt County? Is that Mexican herb?" To which I replied, "Nah.....that's Newhall dachshund-shit weed."

272 Sunday we are checking out a new restaurant in town that serves Cuban sandwiches. What can I expect? Posted by: ALH ----------------------- There is such a sandwich called a "Cuban". Ham, pork (yea, I know pork is ham, but different), cheese, and I can't remember what else, but they are usually great if made properly. And by properly, I mean large quantities.

Then all these medical programs started cropping up (sic), and our friends supply and demand reared their ugly heads.

276 264 Fox Allegedly Demoted Shepard Smith Because He Asked to Come Out

Gawker's J.K. Trotter reports today that "multiple sources" say Fox News anchor Shepard Smith approached network honcho Roger Ailes about the possibility of coming out as gay and was rebuffed. Smith subsequently was moved from prime-time to an afternoon slot.....


***

He always had an afternoon slot and now he does the breaking news coverage as well.

Posted by: Niedermeyer's Dead Horse at April 30, 2014 11:18 PM (DmNpO)

 

That just reads like a load of horseshit.  If he wanted to come out he would have and he would know that he would be untouchable for probably at least 3 years and that's only if his ratings took a major dive.

298 For some reason, the corporate owners of Taco Bell at one point decided they HATED the mission-style buildings. Maybe because they were going national and folks in Wisconsin and Minnesota wouldn't get it. So a bunch of those original building were abandoned and new Taco Bells opened nearby.

But in at least a half-dozen places in LA County you can tell a place was once one of those Taco Bells. In Thousand Oaks the original Taco Bell became a store specializing in scuba diving gear but still had the old facade. In a few cases they became Mexican fast food joints that weren't Taco Bell but were now a lot closer to what you might actually be offered in a fast food joint in Mexico.

Years ago I worked at a truck depot next to a mushroom farm. Every couple of days a semi would come in with a 53' trailer full of horse dung and dump it in the yard. They would shuffle it around and stir it up wit front end loaders. There was a 20' high mound of it next to equipment shed at the farm. If they didn't stir it up a couple of days after a rain it would start off gassing and sometimes explode and fling shit everywhere.

367 327 Obviously someone also read the news story about Taco Bell saying their ground beef is really 88% ground beef. Posted by: Anna Puma (+SmuD) WFT, who produces 88%? It's all around here 73, 80, 85, 90 or 93? I haven't had this type of crap fast food for 20 years, unless we are on the road. After being to Mexico, Taco Bell is the worst imitation of good food. My wife does it better at home. Posted by: The Farmer at April 30, 2014 11:31 PM (eBupg) What they mean is that it is 88% beef(including the fat) and 12% something else probably some sort of filler. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of fast food meat is like that. I think a lot of pizza huts meat toppings are full of non meat fillers.

453 BBQ should be slow cooked and smoked with a dry rub, with any sauces only being added just before pulling it off the smoker, or immediately thereafter -- if at all.

459...but BBQ I don't apparently

 

You need a Smoker to create good 'Barbeque'.

 

A grill is not the same thing.

Grills are good...for grilling, which doesn't take a long time.

 

With a Smoker, you can take a tough cut of meat, slow cook it all day and turn it into a tender, succulent delicacy.

BBQ sauce is optional.

 

I have a chimney-stack style of Smoker, with a good sized attached fire box on the side.

It does a pretty good job.

 

But I've learned that with the stacker type of Smoker...you have some drippage going on, onto the lower racks.

So I have do a load of same types of meat.

498 Soooo....if anyone cares, the other night I asked if anyone was having issues getting the site to load on Firefox. A couple of others said they were having the same issue. Well I figured out my problem - same issue my friend in CO is having. AVG antivirus no longer likes FF, apparently. At least not versions 28 or 29. It started with just certain sites loading slowly, then all sites, and eventually just stopped responding altogether. After much troubleshooting, and a re-install of the browser, on a hunch I did a temp disable of AVG (I use the free version, but I doubt it matters), and it loaded smooth as butter. AVG did push through an update a few days ago, but I can't remember if I was having issues before that or not. But am willing to bet on it. So yeah, if anyone is having those issues on FF and also using AVG, that's likely the issue. I'm hoping it becomes a known issue that they fix fast, otherwise I need to find an alternate free antivirus program (recs welcome!).

535 That just reads like a load of horseshit. If he wanted to come out he would have and he would know that he would be untouchable for probably at least 3 years and that's only if his ratings took a major dive. Posted by: buzzion at April 30, 2014 11:21 PM (LI48c) Gawker doesn't even attempt to make their BS plausible. I'm sure what happened is that Shep wanted to have a "coming out week" where he would spend the whole time on his show talking about himself. Gawker makes it sound like Shep couldn't tell anyone he was gay. No way Ailes would (or could) have any such restriction. I'm sure Shep could tell anyone he wanted, including Gawker. He just couldn't use Fox airtime to do it.

510 So the 'art' of BBQ is making tough cuts of meat tender and yummy?

 

with or w/o sause?

 

----------

 

The art of Smoking...yes.

BBQ is a type of flavor. Not a verb.

 

For example, when I do a load of whole chickens and turkey breasts in my Smoker....they never see any barbeque sauce.

 

Same with a load of Samon.

 

But when I smoke a load of pork ribs, a roast and a brisket...I add some BBQ sauce to some of the pieces in the very last stage of the cooking.

Some people like to add their own sauce.

543 Shep's ratings were on a downhill slide. That's why he lost his evening slot. I doubt that Roger Ailes gives a shit whether someone is gay or not. But...ratings? Thou shalt not let thy ratings slide. People were turning off Shep because of the way he was liberalizing his coverage. That's why he got demoted, his ratings were really bad, he was a bad lead-in. Ratings went down for his show, even though they should have gone steadily upwards.

  -------------------------- 

That's one of the benefits of it. The art is in infusing the meat with the smoke and whatever seasonings you happen to be using.

As for the sauce -- well, according to Peruvians 18:15:

Apply thine condiments only after thine meat hath fully cooked, never before; And only as an enhancement to that which was imparted by spice and smoke;
Lest thy meat become unrecognizable as meat;
And thy smoke and spice banished from thy taste buds

636 I have to wonder how good privet honey would be.

That would have to be a solid mile of privet at least! Those suckers go all over. We've got bees in our backyard, and it's interesting how the taste changes through the year - we usually get honey up to 3 times a year I think depending on their health.

We "loan out" our backyard, and normally they give you a bunch of honey for it - but we ask only that they save us a small amount (1 jar) from just our bees. It's sort of a pain for them because they just put it all together, but they do. It's neat to get a big hunk of the hive and honey.

We've got cherry, peach, apricot and a flower farm nearby not to mention vineyards and strawberries. We still have unopened jars sitting around because we're not honey people I guess. It's more fun to watch them.

You need to put up wind barriers.



We did peppers and tomatoes from plants, just like we always do.....although the underlying reason why did come-up in conversation, as follows: "why is it, that you can go over to the seed packets, and buy a packet of tomato seeds for $3....and they give you 100 seeds of the same variety? Are these people nuts? We're going to plant maybe 20 plants, of 16 varieties. Why don't these seed companies sell 100 tomato seeds that are all guaranteed to be different?"

So many players got their start there and they wound-up being a Minor-League Franchise for the rest of MLB.

Vladimir Guererro, Grady Sizemore, Cliff Lee, Jose Vidro... damn.  So many.

Not one bit.  And if he were hung in a Public Square, I'd slap the horse.

Much as I'd volunteer to do the same after Hillary told those family members that they'd "catch the guy who made that video."

There are a few "on that list".
-Holder
-Reid
-Pelosi

...and our "Executive-Order In Chief", to name a few.

-Being found guilty of treason, of course, through a Court of Law.  Should that ever happen on Pluto with Hobbits and Smurfs in attendance.

709 689 Whinging by Jay Carney and anti-capital punishment activists about Lockett's "botched" execution. (Were his murders "botched"?) Just more reason to bring back the gallows or the firing squad. Posted by: logprof at May 01, 2014 01:31 AM (GW/jL) Hide posts from (GW/jL)



It's real easy. Take a large empty field. Put two crates of dynamite in the middle, and wire for detonation with a timer. Put a table, with straps, on top. Get one of Doc Kevorkian's euthanasia machines (if it's good enough for people to choose it themselves, it's good enough to use on prisoners) -- the Thanatron model -- http://tinyurl.com/dlmct9 .



Note carefully that the Thanatron is designed to accomplish death within about 2 minutes. So, here's the drill -- the condemned is strapped to the table and wired with sensors for a panel of doctors to establish death, the dynamite is set to a 5-minute timer that can be canceled by the medical panel signing off that death has occurred., and the Thanatron is started. Easy-peasy. You get a humanely-executed corpse until 4:59, and a humanely-executed red mist afterward.

It's not just Steyn. It's out there.



American business used to be about doing things that would please a customer. Those that pleased the customer best would prosper over those who pleased the customer a little less so.....but now, American business is about complying with government edicts, bribing the government so that the next set of edicts is slanted in their favor, and finessing government shakedowns should they somehow manage to turn a profit. All else is secondary.

I was the Corporate Controller for two firms in Silicon Valley that made things -- fiberoptic gear and industrial robots -- as well as another that implemented custom logic designs into chips. I understood those businesses and helped improve their profitability while increasing customer satisfaction -- and handled the relevant paper-shuffling in-between. I'm pretty sure I'm good at it -- being that I've seen the numbers.


There's almost nothing like that in Silicon Valley any more. It's all Facebooks and Twitters and Groupons -- not to mention the Solyndras and Teslas and Googles and Netflixes. The old concept of "value add" has given way to "loophole exploit" -- and, since the loophole probably exists through a government fumble, what better way to secure revenue than to buddy up with government to preserve the fumble and your place in it?

The mare in the stable explaining the way of things to her colt, "Some are more income equal than others."

Oh, how I wish it weren't.


And that's a huge impetus to my desire to GTFO -- I've spent decades "calling it like I see it" and trying to use observable truth to guide companies to better policies. I could do that for a pecan farm in Georgia, an auto repair shop in Tennessee, or an ironworker in North Carolina.....but I can't do it here, because I won't book a receivable based on how much a politician has been bribed.


Trillions, literally trillions have been transferred from the part of the economy devoted to making people happy to the part where politicians hand it out to cronies. Unsurprisingly, there ain't a lot of happy people.

767 Well, May 1 and 4 days of holidays here in the glorious worker's paradise that is the PRC.  Wish we had some Taco Bell over here, I do miss that.  They experimented with Taco Bell Grande, but it was a flop.

Ok, headed to the store for margarita fixin's, beer and nachos.

Heh.



Where are you at? One thing about the PRC....not everywhere is created equal.

771 And, BTW, has anyone else noticed that the current cultural craze about "everyone should attend college instead of trade school" is semantically equal to "everyone should compete in the global marketplace against millions of Asians with better training instead of contributing to their town's well-being and earning good pay"?

Posted by: cthulhu at April 30, 2014 11:10 PM (T1005)

772 Yeah, at least I'm down in Shenzhen near the Hong Kong border so it's fairly civilized and can find most any type of imported food/wine/liquor.  But there's a high import duty of beer/wine/liquor + 17% VAT.

Posted by: Chinaacid at April 30, 2014 11:17 PM (atPLq)

773 Yup. Might have gone too far with that. Stretched an Orwell metaphor into German and beyond. Subsequently into NAACP racism. ...right back to German. That could have been "put" more delicately, to say the least. *I denounce myself*

Well, I did a bit of searching, and the only helpful input I can contribute relates to getting business suits....and that involves Hong Kong.

775 ...their mentality of... "...everyone should attend college instead of trade school..." Posted by: cthulhu at May 01, 2014 04:10 AM (T1005) I heard that stupidity in '86-89. I took the "high road" and went for "English" over an actual trade. *applause for the dumb-ass* I hear "They" need welders. I'm artistic and I can keep a bead. I believe. Consistency is key. Balance is necessary. It'll take awhile. I think I'll take a class or thirty.

I have a cousin who is a plumber. While I was chugging along at $40K/yr as a 3rd assistant to a deputy accountant, he had his own house and was working on getting his pilot's license. He now owns his own company.



If you want to succeed in the trades, you have to be sharper than the average collegiate -- because the average collegiate is going to appeal to credentialism to succeed where a tradesman has to manage his rep.

Posted by: cthulhu at April 30, 2014 11:42 PM (T1005)

777 In the trades? You need talent. Learned, hands-on talent. If you're into the electrical trade? It would be downright inhumane not to go BUZZZ!, simply to indicate that some kid almost killed himself. After he shits himself, he'll never do that again. ...unless he's stupid. ...and you can't cure stupid. *Hold My Beer*

792 @776 cthulhu "If you want to succeed in the trades, you have to be sharper than the average collegiate -- because the average collegiate is going to appeal to credentialism to succeed where a tradesman has to manage his rep." From the clique in HS, I had a friend walk right into a welder slot at the place he pushed a broom in for 2 years while a HS student. After 25 years, he has out done the college crowd and I heard he runs the place now. I tell my younger cousins, get the degree if you want, but learn a trade as well (have a plan B). It will help feed yourself when the down-sizing happens during the business cycle.
