Quotes of The Day

Quote I

But of course what most Canadians like to do when we're not trapping beaver and huffing poutine is celebrate diversity. Mark Steyn


Quote II

“Here is my final point...About drugs, about alcohol, about pornography...What business is it of yours what I do, read, buy, see, or take into my body as long as I do not harm another human being on this planet? And for those who are having a little moral dilemma in your head about how to answer that question, I'll answer it for you. NONE of your fucking business. Take that to the bank, cash it, and go fucking on a vacation out of my life.”
Bill Hicks


Quote III

A wild and crazy weekend involves sitting on the front porch, smoking a cigar, reading a book. Robert M. Gates


Quote IV

Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday. John Wayne

*****

A look at the early American drug epidemic. An early look at opium dens.

*****

Bill Whittle and Gang discuss Nancy Pelosi.

*****

Paul Joseph Watson takes a critical look at CNN.


*****


When you think of sleaze from MO, who do you think of? If you said Claire McCaskill, you are a winner.

Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill (Mo.) used a personal foundation to pay for a dinner she attended at Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak's Washington, D.C., residence. The senator had failed to disclose her role in the foundation until earlier this month.

McCaskill came under fire this March after she told the Washington Post she never had a "call or meeting" with Kislyak even though she had publicly announced both a call and meeting with him. This week, CNN reported that McCaskill also attended a black-tie reception at Kislyak's D.C. residence in November 2015.

Our science lesson for this evening. Attendance is mandatory except for AOP.

*****


Are you on Face Book? Taking a vacation this summer? Nobody gives a damn about your photos. Or so says a study.

*****

Illinois hurdles to bankruptcy.

The House Democratic spending proposal falls between the $36 billion budget outlined by Republicans and the $37.3 billion version passed by Senate Democrats but not taken up in the House. It is substantially less than the estimated $39 billion the state is spending now without a budget because of court orders and automatic payments required by law.


Of course they will come to us looking for a bailout. No, just hell no.

*****

Parental tips. 23 things you should let your kids do.

Parents are wary of anything involving sharp objects, sticks included. But letting your kid engage in some improvised swashbuckling is too fun an opportunity to pass up because of a negligible risk of injury.

Tinker Toys were great swords as kids. My younger brother still wears a scar over his left eye.

The ONT Musical Interlude

***



Because. That is why.


June 29, 1961, Del Shannon was at No.1 on the UK singles chart with 'Runaway.' His only UK No.1 and the first of 14 UK Top 40 hits. via thisdayinmusic.com


June 29, 1979, American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer, Lowell George died of a heart attack. The Little Feat front man was found dead at the Key Bridge Marriott Hotel in Arlington, Virginia. George joined Zappa's Mothers of Invention as rhythm guitarist in 1968, played guitar on John Cale's 1973 album Paris 1919, Harry Nilsson's Son of Schmilsson album and Jackson Browne's The Pretender.

*****


Ho-Hum, Yawn. 3 years to act on climate change.

(architect of the process that lead to the Paris Climate Agreement and now vice-chair of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy), says that we only have three years to act if we want a smooth transition to a low-carbon economy—the socio-economic equivalent of losing weight in a slow and steady manner.

If you were to spend the next 30 minutes researching, how many of these "warnings" would you find and how old would they be?

*****


Meet Michael Reed a man with authority issues.

*****


The ONT doesn't ask much of you. But we are tonight. C'mon and be a giver!


*****

Wonder if any of these will make the AoSHQ Moron Cookbook?

*****


When "Ethics" is in your title, well.....Genius Award Winner.

22 Runaway is one of my favorite hits from the 50s. Del Shannon had a hell of a voice, too. He was the choice to replace the incredibly gifted Roy Orbison for the Traveling Wilberries but he died too

Other than that I don't remember bringing it up personally.

L,Elle I guess I feel more grown up and more pressure on me to do well and excel. In fact the week leading up to the wedding I had an epiphany that I'll have two people looking to me for strength, guidance and protection.

I started working out again today and am really thinking about the next move for my career.

64 After being willowed in the last thread while defending my status as a Moron for having been a lurker since LGF kicked my nic out the door about nine years ago, here is my last post:

307 One last comment: Lurkers are people, too!

Remember that the Moron Horde is not just made up of all you frantic refresh button pushers (I have seen you compared to monkeys on crack) -- there are probably far more of us who prefer to merely watch and wait. Think about it.

65 "architect of the process that lead to the Paris Climate Agreement and now vice-chair of the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate and Energy"

The individual thus described turns out to be Christiana Figueres. One of the transnational cabal of globalist climate apparatchiks.

She's never worked at a real job in her life, and her academic background is in cultural anthropology, but she's nevertheless issuing sweeping decrees relating to industry, science, and technology.

Yeah, no. They can piss off with that nonsense.

84 so what kind of egomaniac do you have to be to have slides made of your vacation photos. I ask this thinking of the photos my dad had made of his and our vacations. I do not want to look at someone's photos on the internets or in email, much less go to their house and click through hundreds of slides in a group setting.

Posted by: yankeefifth at June 29, 2017 05:05 PM (0wem/)

85 I think quote number two is bilge water. Any number of things hurt other people. and to say "as long as I'm not hurting anyone don't get in my face about it" can be both naive and arrogant. Alcoholism destroys families and contrary to what the cron affidionados say, watching porn can hurt people-if people are obsessed with the perfect man/woman and not spending time/having sex with their spouses. Also, not all acts in porn are consensual and human trafficking often involved people forced into the porn industry.A ministry that deals with porn addiction is called "Every Mans Battle" Am i suggesting banning porn,-no, but let's not pretend all the actresses in in are high paid and just having a consensual grand old time.

98 >>>Of course they will come to us looking for a bailout. No, just hell no. This is my main trouble with a bailout. If they took one red cent from me to pay for such a bailout, I'd be paying into the pension of people who never did any work for me, because I do not live in Illinois. Same idea with bailing out GM. I'm paying pensions of employees of a company I never had any dealings with.

Bigger than I and my wife would have liked but overall it was awesome. No real snafus that I've been made aware of, although we did have a weird moment involving the cops.

So, for my garter toss I put the garter on a junior sized football and of course my friends ended up throwing the football. From what I've gathered instead of just asking the politely once or twice to stop they brought a cop up to ask us.

Very WTF.

124 Sorry, but Bill Hicks is/was an overrated lib. The youtube videos that I've seen of him are quite unimpressive and too totalitarian lib for me.

A lot of inferior stand ups just try to rip off Hicks, like Russel Brand. Just because you're loud and intense and speak rapidly doesn't mean you're correct. Saying something mildly amusing based on patently false assumptions isn't good standup. it's hackery.

Before that. Consider the 1992 "Erf Summit" in Rio.

(Ever notice how they always hold these trendy international gatherings in places people like to visit, and would have to pay out of pocket to visit were someone else not picking up the tab for them to do so? Why aren't they ever held in places like Lagos, Nigeria?)

Anyway, the '92 confab was full of dark predictions about the HORRIBLE DOOM which would befall all of humanity BY THE YEAR TWO THOUSAND if their policy prescriptions were not heeded.

196 I will always have a soft spot for Bill Hicks because of his standup routine describing Reginald Denny. You will perhaps remember that fellow.

The completely innocent and uninvolved trucker who during the early '90s L.A. riots had the path of his vehicle blocked by screaming street scum. He politely stopped for them.

Whereupon the mob forcibly pulled Denny out of the cab of his truck, sprawled him on the pavement, shattered his skull with a brick, and ecstatically danced around his insensate body afterwards.

The title of said routine being simply "Step On The Gas".

I live in IL, work for the state and monitor developments pretty closely, and I have yet to see any official, up to and including the governor, legislative leaders and Congresscritters, make any mention of a bailout. As I've mentioned before, the governor may be Republican but he's a hardcore Never Trumper who won't even mention PDT by name; the last thing he wants to do is go begging Trump for a bailout. My gut tells me they will patch something together and try to hold out until the 2018 election in hopes of defeating Rauner and maybe getting Congress back into Dem hands...

Posted by: Christopher R Taylor My older sisters saw Linda Ronstadt perform back in the '70's, and came home thinking HOW DUMB SHE WAS.

Meaning they cut demo tapes in a studio for a record company, but nothing ever came of it. My older sister, at 66, still has a beautiful singing voice.

242 So, in a strange twist of fate, I'm annoyed at ALL of my jobs right now.

Tired of part time job, which is ending in September. It's like being on work death row.

My editor is also getting on my nerves big time. I've worked with him forever  and it's never been like this. Here is his new life:
1. Travel for a week or more on business
2. Return to office for a few days,catch up on everything in an utter panic
3. Take a bunch of personal days.

Rinse and repeat.

Him being out of town is good, since I don't hear from him and he doesn't piss me off.

However,  he now doesn't want to make any decisions, because he's either too busy or not in the office. Which makes my life difficult, since I need him to make decisions so I don't have to rush around like a chicken with it's head cut off.

I think God is teling me to play the lottery.

Human trafficking is demonic.

266 Regarding the Bill Hicks quote, a 12 year old kid in Michigan stabbed a 6 year old boy to death on a playground. The 12 year old killer's mother was a heroin addict. The problem with substance abuse is that everyone else is left to pay for the consequences. I don't know what the solution is, but pretending that it isn't affecting others, particularly family and taxpayers, isn't useful.

I have to say, you have no idea how good you have things until you lose them. I lost the use of my right arm and hand when I had the stroke, and it is unbelievable how hard it is to do even very simple things with just one hand. Very simple as in: putting on pants in the morning. Be happy for what you have people, it is pretty amazing. Oh, and don't worry about me, I will almost certainly recover 100% within a few more weeks. I am almost at the point where I can write again. David

282 Dutch on the Duke: "In the 1940s, Duke was one of the few stars with the courage to expose the determined bid by a band of communists to take control of the film industry. Through a series of violent strikes and systematic blacklisting, these people were at times dangerously close to reaching their goal. With theatrical employee's union leader Brewer, playwright Morrie and others, he formed the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals to challenge this insidious campaign. Subsequent Congressional investigations in I947 clearly proved both the communist plot and the importance of what Duke and his friends did. In that period, during my first term as president of the Actors' Guild, I was confronted with an attempt by many of these same leftists to assume leadership of the union. At a mass meeting I watched rather helplessly as they filibustered, waiting for our majority to leave so they could gain control. Somewhere in the crowd I heard a call for adjournment, and I seized on this as a means to end the attempted takeover. But the other side demanded I identify the one who moved for adjournment. I looked over the audience, realizing that there were few willing to be publicly identified as opponents of the far left. Then I saw Duke and said, "Why I believe John Wayne made the motion." I heard his strong voice reply, "I sure as hell did!" The meeting and the radicals' campaign was over."....... Until a communist took the presidency in 2008.

326 Depending on the price, I would buy the Waterford vase. The mortar and pestle sound cool too.

Take a look at the site for the things you want to sell. You can also look on eBay at sold listings only to see how much people are paying for the items you have to sell.

Posted by: CaliGirl at June 29, 2017 10:40 PM (Ri/rl)


They're 4 wine glasses, not a vase.  I just hate to be bothered with the whole shipping thing, which is why I don't even want to think about ebay.


That mortar and pestle cost $100 in Sweden.  No idea what I'd get for it here, but I need to do some research.

MY STROKE IS THE BEES KNEES BRO!

Posted by: thathalfrican - new faces tie like shoelaces at June 29, 2017 06:08 PM (IYHxL)

369 Things which have been on my mind lately so a too long comment.

It is my considered opinion that there are no real leakers. What there is is a new secret, very encrypted,  listserv where certain journalists, Deep State Obama operatives and former IC and WH officials of the Obama administration meet to cook up stories to be run as "leaked" by anonymous sources.

They all know it's mostly fictional smoke with a leavening of factual, but fun house, mirrors that they are passing along as truth. Their only concerns are that it harm Trump and that the fish not stink too much too soon.

This is not the first time an "op" has been run to harm a President but AFAIK it is the first time that so many very high officials of the IC and the WH have been actively trying to bring down a successor President.

As to why, well.....

Hillary had, going back into the early 90s, blackmail type material on every Washington connected Republican and the rising stars from the States. She was locked and loaded to gun down 16 of the 17 Republicans who ran in the primary. The one she didn't have a big file on was Trump. He wasn't on anybody's radar as a candidate and even after he announces he was considered to be a clown act trying to make a buck somehow.

From July 2015 to July 2016 they worked, at first not too hard but as Trump moved closer to clinching the nomination the pace picked up, to find material that would destroy him and let Hillary coast to the win. She needed to coast through dirty tricks because she was not just a horrible candidate but her health made campaigning hard.

As time rolled on and Trump wasn't fading away desperation set in. They got sloppy, careless, even more than was usual with Hillary. I think they figured Comey was their firewall since he had many times in the past papered over Clinton problems. As FBI head he was well positioned to help again and was not an official that would be expected to resign or be fired.

There are more interesting times a coming. This poker game is one that to step away, to fold, is to lose all you have or ever will have. Whether the world knows it or not, we are all, all in, this time around.

When I sit down to a blackjack table, I am paying for entertainment. That means hovering for a long time, looking for a congenial and nearly full table. After that, the only thing in question is whether I'm entertained, and how much I have to pay for my entertainment. Sometimes I win, sometimes I lose. But I only get grumpy if I lose fast enough that I have to bail too early.

That would make the Clintons, Obama, leftist leadership and the media complicit in the operation.

418 This. I am a personal liberty kind of guy, but I do wonder about drugs. Historical reaction to opium addiction was the whole monolithic drug enforcement regime we have now. Now was it an overreaction? In hindsight, probably. Unintended consequences are constant.

However, on the other hand, is doing nothing the right way to go? I don't know.


Contrary to libertarian mythology, the temperance movement wasn't just a bunch of old ninnies upset that people were having fun.  They were reacting to a real social problem caused by excess drinking.  They started out not wanted to ban alcohol, but merely get people, especially men, to stop drinking so much that it was destroying families.

427 Hopefully we can avoid long fights between regular posters. It always rather distressing-to me anyway. So to distract everybody-I have a problem. Oh one-not another one, Fenelon?!!, Sorry I have a friend-who's ignoring me right now-in a breezy way- (That is, they're not actively hostile) because I've made too many comments about his hubris. This person can be very charming and good at what they do-but a narcissist-which I haven't come out and said directly-because what would be the point? So the other day at a gathering-the friend's wife-who is also a friend-I actually like her personality better than I like his-said that I was a very intuitive person. She also told me that their daughter had broken up with her boyfriend and the mother is upset because he was a really nice guy, and she thinks her daughter is unable to accept love, I can't every well say to her-"Well, that's probably because her father is a narcissist and they tend to mess up their lives of their children." So I guess I just shut up and listen to her. After all, she married him. She knows what he's like. I guess feel bad for both she and her daughter, but I can't say what I really think.

445 369 Things which have been on my mind lately so a too long comment. It is my considered opinion that there are no real leakers. What there is is a new secret, very encrypted, listserv where certain journalists, Deep State Obama operatives and former IC and WH officials of the Obama administration meet to cook up stories to be run as "leaked" by anonymous sources. They all know it's mostly fictional smoke with a leavening of factual, but fun house, mirrors that they are passing along as truth. Their only concerns are that it harm Trump and that the fish not stink too much too soon. This is not the first time an "op" has been run to harm a President but AFAIK it is the first time that so many very high officials of the IC and the WH have been actively trying to bring down a successor President. As to why, well..... Hillary had, going back into the early 90s, blackmail type material on every Washington connected Republican and the rising stars from the States. She was locked and loaded to gun down 16 of the 17 Republicans who ran in the primary. The one she didn't have a big file on was Trump. He wasn't on anybody's radar as a candidate and even after he announces he was considered to be a clown act trying to make a buck somehow. From July 2015 to July 2016 they worked, at first not too hard but as Trump moved closer to clinching the nomination the pace picked up, to find material that would destroy him and let Hillary coast to the win. She needed to coast through dirty tricks because she was not just a horrible candidate but her health made campaigning hard. As time rolled on and Trump wasn't fading away desperation set in. They got sloppy, careless, even more than was usual with Hillary. I think they figured Comey was their firewall since he had many times in the past papered over Clinton problems. As FBI head he was well positioned to help again and was not an official that would be expected to resign or be fired. There are more interesting times a coming. This poker game is one that to step away, to fold, is to lose all you have or ever will have. Whether the world knows it or not, we are all, all in, this time around. Posted by: geoffb5 at June 29, 2017 11:09 PM (d3wbb) Don't forget all of the FBI files that Clinton operatives got their hands on during the 90's for the purpose of "vetting" White House employees and visitors. Included in that were files on a lot of people throughout DC that weren't Democrats. I'm sure the Clinton people shared that info with the Obama folks when it came to leaking info on conservatives. Remember, Roberts was nominated by GHWB for the DC Circuit Court of Appeals in 1992 but no vote was ever taken on his appointment.

I blame the industrial revolution.  You had a concentration of people in the cities, which magnified negative effects of alcohol and destroyed the social cohesion which had in the past provided a support system to families in trouble.  You added to that a layer of unmarried young men without strong family bonds who had money and time.  Finally, you top it off with increasing mass production of hard liquor which meant people were getting drunk more easily, and you have a recipe for problems.

473 Hey Donna, are we still in 1st? And how many nights are you spending at Summer Fest? Posted by: Misanthropic Humanitarian at June 29, 2017 11:32 PM (ZTRlp) Amazingly still in first (basically because the Cubs and Cards have sucked and the division stinks - but the Crew has played some very fun baseball this season). It's been an unexpectedly long 10 minutes! Few things will drain the money out of your wallet like Summerfest. I haven't gone at night in a very long time. It's OK during the day, but at about 6 pm the whole mood changes and suddenly there are a zillion drunken kids around and fights break out.... The ER physicians I know hate and dread Summerfest - the ER is filled with drunks and guys who had have bottles smashed over their heads. Good musical selections tonight, especially Talking Heads and Del Shannon.

"'2020 is a hard deadline. There's no turning back if we don't bend the emissions curve within three years,' says Sharan Burrow, The General Secretary of the International Trade Union Confederation and a signatory on the article. 'There are no jobs on a dead planet.'"

The really fun thing is to pull up the CVs of these green zampolits.

Sharan Burrow has a degree in "teaching". And has been a teachers' union ward-heeler pretty much her entire adult life. She just took it international, connecting into the unionist movement abroad, and then hooked up with the climate hustle.

490 About the Hicksian sham-position of "I'm not hurting anyone"... Ok, fine. I agree. Your drinking doesn't hurt anyone, directly. But if you act irrationally and do something illegal or immoral because of your drinking, NOW you are hurting someone, and I hold you accountable for that. Not for the drinking, but for the awful thing you did while drinking. Same with most other vices. It's not a philosophical position, it's a sham designed to absolve the guilt they feel but can't figure out why. Hicks (and his comedic inheritors like Carlin and Brand) just wrapped a set of vulgar jokes around that central evasion of Pseudo-libertarian dandyism. (I do like a lot of Carlin's non-Hicks material, however) (but that hacky pillock Russel Brand can give butterfly kisses to the dorsal facing side of my man-parts.)

It is problematic because he is a pastor and is in many ways, remarkably good at what he does with many very fine qualities, but I have been around people who say things about him, "Well, we know you like to kid" when I don't think they interpreted it as a kidding, but as rather but some passive aggressive thing but didn't say that. I suppose his wife talks to me because I understand about church life, but it's hard.

Note also that in 2008, Hillary had a big file on all possible Democratic primary opponents. Plenty of oppo. Nothing to worry about.

Except on Obama, who had come out of nowhere, and who was not really a plausible Presidential candidate, having been in the Senate less than two years at the time he declared, and having been an obscure state legislature backbencher before that.

That's not his style nor the style of a narcissist, but with everything going on in her life she needs some empathy and I guess it helps that I'm not a church member. He once said "Pastors wives have to do things they don't want to do" which I thought was inappropriate to say in public, even if it's true There's only so much she can say to them-but it's oblique, even to me. So much is unsaid. My opinion is that he ought to be on his knees every night thanking God he has such a wife. Maybe he does-I hope so and tells her sometimes.

That was what got to be the conventional wisdom. But Livingstone was seen in a room, with a big copy machine and stacks files going to the ceiling. That was apparently his real job and remember he was a former bouncer who owed his position completely to Hillary.

Also these were not just FBI files but they were the "raw" files that were put together in a FBI security background check. Every nasty story that anyone who ever held a grudge against you would be in them along with an anal exam of your entire life from childhood.

But when more people get on base, they tend to score. That is not speculation, that is Fact. What the movie about Billy Beane failed to address is the fact that they had Zito, Mulder and someone else on the mound that dominated during that run. The Brewers should not have been competitive this season, yet here they are. I expect the Cubs will overtake them soon and the N.L. has better Wildcard teams, but they have future prospects that will take them to another level if they don't trade them away.

The duct tape thing, I can do. I need one of you 'Ettes to come over and attend to me through the night, hitting the "reset" button every 20 minutes.

554 Yeah, like a lot of professional musicians have drinking and drug problems. Jim Morrison died because he was falling down drunk and died drowning in his own vomit.

No Coke, Pepsi Posted by: Misanthropic Humanitarian at June 29, 2017 11:37 PM (ZTRlp) yeah, a lot of musicians are pretty self destructive. Takes big will power to resist it all. My career started with me licking a line off a chicks boobs in between sets of one of the very first gigs I ever did (long but true story). I understood immediately, and knew the power of that moment, and knew right then to not go down that road. I watched more than a few go down in flames. Its a hard thing to explain what its like getting caught up in the moment. I even kept the drinking to a very, very small minimum. My weakness was chicks bearing shots. I was never much of a drinker, but if a chick wanted to do some shots, or a drink, my mind went right to that line in ghost busters, "if a chick asks if you are a god you say YES". I survived with my ass intact by sheer will alone, because it sure isn't easy.

567 I'm talking about Liv Tyler and Arrogon. That's miscegenation, isn't it? Posted by: L, Elle Liv Tyler was Arwen Undomiel, the Evenstar of her people. Daughter of Elrond. Elrond was Half -elven; he was given a choice of being Man or Elf. His parents were Earendil and Elwing, another union of Man and Elf (Elwing was Elven kind). Elrond's brother was Elros, and chose to be human, and was the first king of the Numenoreans (at the beginning of the 2nd Age). So actually, Aragorn was descended through many generations, from Elros. 5000 years ago. Through the Second age (2000 years) and the Third age (LOTR takes place at the end of the 3rd Age, about 3000 years long or so). Arwen (Liv Tyler) and Aragorn were actually very distant cousins (about 50 generations separated, at least, as the Numenoreans originally lived to be three times the life span of normal men).

578 495 With the Farm System they have, they may be able to achieve that goal, but I doubt that they would trade away "Blue Chips" for a "One-Night-Stand". Posted by: Slapweasel, (Cold1) (T) at June 29, 2017 11:39 PM (6gk0M) I hope not Slap. They're doing better than expected, but this was supposed to be a rebuilding year. I recall Billy Beane traded away the A's farm a few years back, going for broke - and then they got knocked out in the Wild Card game by KC. Helluva game that was. The A's haven't recovered yet. Posted by: Donna&&&&&&V sez the Brewers are NO.1 in the NL Central for the next 15 minutes at June 29, 2017 11:46 PM (P8951) As a longtime Reds fan, I just wish they had someone in the front office that would make sure that when they trade all the veteran talent for prospects that you don't go overboard on one phase. A few years ago they had no hitting, but lots of live arms, so they traded all the arms for bats. Now they have the bats but no arms, and the arms they have are in the minors getting experience and are a couple years away. Just enough time for the Reds to clear out all that hitting.

But too many of these philosopher-comedians have popularized this shabby, lazy mode of thinking. Like they skimmed over the first chapter of 'Lautremont for Dummies' and now they're the high priests of morality. It's why i have a particular hatred of Hicks and Brand and their ilk.

That's the second time this season one of our starters have had to go on the DL after hurting themselves during an at-bat. I remember Wainwright was out for almost the entire season when he pulled something running to first. It's a killer to see these guys get injured doing something most of them aren't any damned good at.

614 Sargon of Akkad has a video about Sarkeesian's powerplay at Vidcon - where she deliberately broke the rules to harass Sargon and to get him kicked off of Patreon, and Vidcon let it happen.

620 581 Craig Livingstone was just another of the Clinton's fall guys. They had scores of them at least. Disposable political assets. Loyalty and willingness to take a fall the only required assets. I sometimes wonder if Federal prosecutors are just numb over political criminality instead of incompetent or corrupt. Well, some of them. Posted by: Merovign, Dark Lord of the Sith at June 30, 2017 12:09 AM (wB8Tg) The Clinton's were never going to get the Justice Department to investigate those raw files being copied. It's was the same convenient excuse that was used for the illegal email server: "Oopsie, we didn't think it was wrong". And, from 1993-94, the Clintons had a pliant Democrat House and Senate, and both of those chambers plus the Clintons were hot to trot to pass Hillarycare. No way that they were going to rock that boat with an investigation into those files.

630 That Jacob's Ladder video brought back fond memories of my teens, which I somehow managed to survive. Back in the 50s-60s, shoe stores often had these x-ray machines with a slot you could slip your feet into to see how the shoes fit your toes. I managed to get my hands on a high voltage transformer used to power one of them. This bad boy of a transformer was a little bigger than a 5 gallon pail, with a scary insulator electrode on top. My buddy and I went dumpster diving behind the grocery store and came home with a burned out 8-foot fluorescent bulb. I hung it from the garage rafters with baling twine, connected each end to the bad boy and turned it on. Voila! An eight foot long arc inside the tube - lit up the garage like the sun. We also made Jacob ladders until we ran out of fuses. Fun times!

633 Posted by: FenelonSpoke at June 30, 2017 12:02 AM (soOgU) Interesting. I wish I knew more about the narcissistic personality disorder. I've mostly seen it in senior management in business and at least one of them did have a messed-up daughter. On the other hand, I can think of a number of reasons why a young lady wouldn't want to be a pastor's wife. I'm one of those who believes it is a calling to be a pastor's spouse and God may be calling her to something else. Being a pastor's wife imposes a lot of limitations--certainly in the Evangelical tradition that I'm a part of. There are a lot of time demands and the financial benefits just aren't there for most. Plus, constantly living under a microscope is hard. Whatever the problem is, I know you'll handle it with Godly wisdom.

634 605 Of all the players I would have picked to have a 5 HR game, Scoots wouldn't have made the top 25. Posted by: Donna Well, he actually only had a 4 HR game. Scooter is happy with the Reds (and he was probably happy with the Brewers). He is originally from Southwest Ohio (Lebanon) but then moved to Florida where he went to High school (Sarasota). Posted by: Bossy Conservative....outlaw in America at June 30, 2017 12:18 AM (S6Pax) It probably has to do with the Reds having some very lively bats surrounding him. Tends to get pitchers to pitch to a guy like him so that they don't pitch to Votto with a player on base. I just hope he didn't get on the juice when he was released by the Brewers in hopes of impressing another team.

One thing they have been holding over the team is a new stadium. The team thought about building a new stadium on the site where RFK is, but the Interior Department said that as long as the team had the name "Redskins", not dice. Well, now Trump is POTUS, but Elanor Holmes Norton still thinks that the Interior Department will do what she wants instead of POTUS. Yeah, the current stadium is 25 years old, but by the time they get all their ducks in a row and get the thing built, FedEx Field will be about 35-40 years old.

678 IF IL goes to DC cap in hand begging for bailouts, the federal government should bail them out. At a price. The price? The state loses its statehood and becomes a territory and is reorganized by the feds. (You want bailed out for being incompetent? OK. But it's gonna cost you.)

Everyone's happy now, right? Posted by: L, Elle at June 30, 2017 12:57 AM (Rsi2C Sure. I was just making jokes about gay hobbits and elf/dwarves because you mentioned LOTR. I actually didn't know that Arwen was only part elf until recently. I think it was because I was watching something about another planned LOTR prequel about Beren and Luthien. And that explained why Arwen could "choose a mortal life" in LOTR. The movies cut out a lot of stuff. For instance you wouldn't know that Aragorn was 87 during it unless you had the extended cuts.

683 Love the engineering flow chart. Except don't use WD-40 as a primary lubricant. I think the name stands for "water displacement, formula 40", and I thing it was invented within walking distance of my junior high. I am guilty of using it as a lubricant, but not for a long time. There are many better products for lubrication, depending on the machinery/item, and the situation. Leaving WD-40 with a large and important role doing what it was designed to do.

At (FL) high way speeds, 2 hours. I don't think the speed limit goes above 40, and there are long stretches where it is 35, even less at night where the Key Deer roam. IIRC, it took about 5 hours. And you're still at Miami when you get back. It's most of a day's drive (JAX), an all day (Lake City) or more than a day's drive (Alabama) to get out of the state.

Tinkertoys are little 3-inch-long sticks + little circular wooden hubs with holes to put the sticks into. It'd be very difficult to make a sword with any tensile strength out of Tinkertoys, and most likely if you made one and then hit someone with it, the sword would pretty much fall to pieces and barely leave a bruise, much less a scar.

It'd be very difficult to make a sword with any tensile strength out of Tinkertoys, and most likely if you made one and then hit someone with it, the sword would pretty much fall to pieces and barely leave a bruise, much less a scar. " You obviously weren't very resourceful as a child.

740 Tinker Toys. There's something I hadn't though of, or heard, in ages. Have an Erector Set (knock it off, morons) out in the garage, in its original wood box. Should check on it. Think there was some corrosion. The Lionel (post-war) train cars (locomotives restored) are stored in my dad's WWII army foot locker. My own plastic foot locker, from a more recent international misunderstanding, just doesn't seem the same - though for a time I stacked one on the other, and that seemed kind of cool.

741 Oh, yeah... Tinkertoys are little 3-inch-long sticks Those of us with the platinum kits got many longer sticks than that. Only poor kids with hand-me-down missing-pieces kits had only 3-inch-long sticks.... oh uh... sorry.

746 736 red, probably have asked in the past, but what ranges do you frequent up there?

I used to do steel matches down in Chino at Rahaagues, but the organizer died and I think the matches along with him (plus, they raised their prices to sort of ridiculous levels).

Posted by: rhomboid at June 30, 2017 02:21 AM (L7t0A)


No shit do you know what it costs to have a red key there now? neither do i. could not afford to keep that up. but i used to shoot skeet there. Grimmy still goes to use the outdoor range. thats not too bad. but i wish i could still afford a red key to drive in when i liked and shoot as much as i wanted.

Only poor kids with hand-me-down missing-pieces kits had only 3-inch-long sticks.... oh uh... sorry. Posted by: mindful webworker - skyline! I never actually owned any Tinkertoys myself -- I just occasionally played at other kids' houses where they were available. What I had, instead, was a box of Legos -- a pretty substantial-sized shoebox, but they were all (to be frank) hand-me-downs -- a sort of accumulation of several abandoned half-lost sets. The main problem? About one-third of the pieces looked like Legos to the untrained eye, but when you tried to snap them into real Legos, they didn't fit. I think they were part of a similar toy that never made it big in America, called "Rasti" or something like that. I guess these imposters were like the Kaboom of building-block toys -- only parents who didn't love their kids let them have Rastis. It was really frustrating, because I always ended up having two separate brick groupings which could not interact -- and I had no idea where these fake-ass bricks came from, nor where I could get more.

749 we go to Rahaagues to shoot pheasant in the fall/winter/spring, when the stars align.

it's a long way from the SFV for regular shooting, albeit herself did sign us up for a shotgun (sporting clays) class there a few years back, when i was healthier and we got out more because i paid some of the bills.

we hit Angeles and Moore n Moore up in Tujunga, Oak Tree in Newhall, and can be induced to go shooting elsewhere in SoCal, all things being equal. (w*rk/traffic/funding)

752 Gushka I only ever went to that range for steel matches ("Steel Madness"), which were great - close to 250-round matches (at "shooting matches", I want to SHOOT), much more than is typical. They were done over in the berms to the west/right of the extensive shotgun complex. Anyway, they were fun. You'd squad up with people as they came in, met some interesting people, former military and some law enforcement. And - a tribute to Ron Jung, may he RIP - Ron used to do a night-shoot in October, close to Halloween. Only all-welcome action shooting night-shoot I've ever heard of. It was hilarious. Searchlights. Movement. In one stage, he had a "borrowed" Anaheim PD cruiser (seriously), colored lights going - you started in the driver's seat, jumped out and picked up your pistol on a plastic barrel (the guy who'd boldly lent the cruiser didn't want any bullet holes in the car to write up), then blasted away.

757 Thanks, red. I've not shot at any LA-area ranges other than Rahaagues. There's a C ampersand R shoot out at West End (?) something-or-other (forget the name right now) that's tempted me (all my rifles - for now - are C ampersand R). Dropped by LAX Ammo range/store on the way back from a central coast trip recently. For some reason, they (like the Cabelas up in Reno) had low-recoil shotgun target loads for a price better than online prices. Nice store, though. Neat ammo displays, and a huge selection. Too much of a hurry to stop at the (apparently famous?) donut place nearby, though.

"People are doing it with a stiff upper lip .... but there's a lot of stress and resentment....
