Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Nearly 70% of the country is either female, people of color, or young adults between 18 and 35, or a combination of the three. The angry white guy is dying out, and the Census Bureau has already told us that by 2050, white people are going to be the minority, and I’m not sad to say I can’t wait for that day to happen. I hope I live long enough to see it because it will be a better country.” Michael Moore.


Quote II

“In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on.” Robert Frost


Quote III

“Victory is won not in miles but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more.” Louis L'Amour


*****


Once again, activist court thwarts the will of the people.

AUSTIN, Texas — A federal judge has temporarily blocked most of Texas’ tough new “sanctuary cities” law allowing police to inquire about people’s immigration status during routine interactions such as traffic stops.
Opponents call the measure, which sailed through the Republican-controlled Legislature, a “show your papers” law. They sued, and the ruling by U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia in San Antonio keeps it from taking effect Friday, allowing the case time to proceed.
Conservatives say the crackdown on illegal immigration enforces the rule of law.

Hurricane Harvey. It has brought out our best. Hurricane Harvey. It has brought out the worst.

The Good. The Bad. And The Judgmental.

The church had announced on Twitter late Tuesday morning that it was receiving people who need shelter. Osteen announced the move himself shortly after, adding in a tweet that he and wife Victoria Osteen "care deeply about our fellow Houstonians."

The move followed a day of online criticism from those who claimed the church closed its doors while other places of worship, including several mosques, opened theirs to people who needed help.


Earlier Osteen had indicated that his church was inaccessible due to the flood waters.


*****

More bad news on the Harvey front. The National Flood Insurance Program is underwater. And it continues to sink.

The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the singular source of flood insurance for most Americans, is already $23 billion in debt after servicing prior natural disasters, including Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina. Costs from Harvey are expected to increase that debt by billions of dollars. The NFIP, which is overseen by FEMA, has borrowed money from the U.S. Treasury, and thus from taxpayers, in order to keep itself running. That debt is due next month, when the program is also up for reauthorization in Congress.


And the likes of Bernie Sanders wants to hand over control of health insurance to Washington, D.C.

*****


When you build along side water, bad things can and will happen. Developers and Republicans= Bad. Scientists and average Joe = Good.

In recent days, the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey has raised water levels in some parts of the watershed high enough to completely cover a Cadillac. The vanished wetlands wouldn’t have prevented flooding, but they would have made it less painful, experts say.
The Harvey-wrought devastation is just the latest example of the consequences of Houston’s gung-ho approach to development. The city, the largest in the US with no zoning laws, is a case study in limiting government regulations and favoring growth—often at the expense of the environment. As water swamps many of its neighborhoods, it’s now also a cautionary tale of sidelining science and plain common sense. Given the Trump administration’s assault on environmental protections, it’s one that Americans elsewhere should pay attention to.

Texans need help. They don't need this kind of help.

F*ck the Red Cross. If we are deplorables then you can't accept our money.

F*ck Big Labor.


F*ck this SJW.

There are numerous honest charitable organizations who are helping the hurricane/flood victims. Do a little homework to find out which one would be a good fit with your donations.

We are going to help out some Jello-Salad Eaters Lutheran groups.

Hmmm. Low fat diets in the news. Once again settled science isn't so settled.

Low-fat diets could raise the risk of early death by almost one quarter, a major study has found.

The Lancet study of 135,000 adults found those who cut back on fats had far shorter lives than those enjoying plenty of butter, cheese and meats.

Researchers said the study was at odds with repeated health advice to cut down on fats.

*****

With friends like Paul Ryan, Mitch O'Connell and Kevin D. Williamson who needs enemies or even Republicans.

n this lengthy article containing remarkably little information or analysis but plenty of snark and virtue-signaling, Williamson stretches attending a rally to protect Robert E. Lee’s statue in Dallas TX to smear the Anarcho-Tyrannized Unite The Right rally in faraway Charlottesville VA. Mostly, this consists of him making fun of the protesters and counter-protesters who showed up to the Dallas event.

Williamson displays an element of Narrative Confusion here. The Washington Post is wailing for the fashion industry to do something because too many Unite The Right protesters were dressed in khakis and polo shirts and so looked disturbingly “normal”. [Neo-Nazis are using fashion in an attempt to normalize. The fashion industry needs to speak up. By Robin Givhan, August 22, 2017]

The ONT wonders if Williamson, Stephen F. Hayes and David Brock will be vacationing together in Aspen this upcoming ski season.

The CNN reporter continued to press the clearly distraught woman.

"Can you tell us — " started the CNN reporter.

“We walked through four feet of water to get food on the first day,” replied Danielle, now visibly crying. “Yeah, that’s a lot of s***.”

The Left has gone bat shit crazy over the PDT pardon of Sheriff Joe. He wasn't facing a death sentence. George Washington pardoned two deplorables.

It would not take long after the adoption of the Constitution for the office of the President to exercise its power to pardon. First issued by George Washington on November 2, 1795, the pardon put a public end to the earliest major instance of civic violence in the United States since the Constitution’s establishment six years earlier. The presidential action forgave two Pennsylvania men sentenced to hang for treason, simultaneously quelling a nascent uprising and proving the power of the chief executive. The men’s crime? Protesting the most sensitive of matters: whiskey.

Sarah Palin loses suit against NYT. At least she fought back. Unlike the spineless squishes who run D.C.

Here, plaintiff’s complaint, even when supplemented by facts developed at an evidentiary hearing convened by the Court, fails to make that showing,” wrote U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in an opinion obtained by Law Newz.

The New York Times acknowledged its error shortly after the article’s publication, issuing several corrections. In court, they argued it was an “honest mistake.” (Under First Amendment law, mere mistakes alone don’t constitute defamation of a public figure–there needs to be “actual malice” behind the error.) Palin’s lawyers tried to puncture that defense, however, by pointing out that another NYT article published that same day said there was no connection between their client and the Giffords shooting.

Can lack of sleep kill you?

Every college student knows the eye-stinging pain of a caffeine-induced all-nighter. It’s been well documented that prolonged sleep deprivation will lead to lower cognitive and motor function, as well as impaired memory; it might even give you the tired-giggles. No one has ever definitively shown why sleep is necessary for our survival, and no person has ever had sleep deprivation listed as their cause of death. As prominent sleep researcher John Allan Hobson states “The only known function of sleep is to cure sleepiness”. So, can sleep really kill you?

A full roster of stars, from Gweneth Paltrow to Neil Young are against GMOs.

40 years ago GMO insulin was controversial.

GMOs were a worry 40 years ago? Yes, though GMO insulin today is regarded as a gigantic success story for public health in this century, by 1977 the same political forces and activists still aligned against science now were present then. Just the names have changed. Today, it is Senator Bernie Sanders, back then it was Senator Ted Kennedy. Today, activists universally call all genetic engineering a GMO, but back then the public knew a broader term, Recombinant DNA - which is what a GMO is, the transfer of genetic material from one organism to another plant or animal

As we fight the Opioids War a new weapon is being developed. Heroin vaccine.

IN BRIEF

Researchers have developed a vaccine for heroin that prevents users from feeling anything at all after using the drug. This might stop physical addiction, but not the other factors that drive drug abuse, which concerns many addiction specialists.

31 Over at legal insurrection there is a post about the judge who found Sheriff Arpio in contempt of court. It seems the judge wants to overturn the presidential pardon and is seeking oral arguments. It's all in legal language and I don't understand a word of it. It seems to me the judge is violating Arpio's constitutional rights since Arpio has been pardoned, and it sounds like double jeopardy by continuing to prosecute a case that has been declared void by the president. I don't know where this is going. but it doesn't sound good.

32 In the D&D world - Carl Sargent. He was a visionary module designer, whose magnum opus was "Night Below"; also overhauled the Greyhawk setting into something postapocalyptic. (To the chagrin of the setting's fans.) Before getting into D&D Sargent was kind of a Dr Peter Venkman figure doing a lot of research into the paranormal. Soon after Night Below the man... I'm not sure. Some say he vanished. Others say he had an accident and that they knew where he was, but rated him unable to do any D&D work in future. Or maybe the same otherworldly entities who consumed Abdul Alhazred took an interest in Carl Sargent.

42 D&D, or more exactly the Dragon magazine, also had a cartoonist, who drew the Wormy cartoon. David A. Trampier. Trampier, though, didn't disappear from the face of the Earth like Sargent did. He just quit and became a cab-driver. And he'd still talk to people, if they got into his cab and talked to him. Some college kid was impressed by this guy and did a profile on him - and them the D&D nerds found the article and said, hey, THAT'S DAVID TRAMPIER FROM WORMY. Not sure what's happened to him since though. Maybe he moved to some other city. I guess burnout happens.

44 They sued, and the ruling by U.S. District Judge Orlando Garcia in San Antonio keeps it from taking effect Friday, allowing the case time to proceed. What if there were evidence that a white judge were letting white supremacists off if they were assaulting minorities. If you could build up a case of racially motivated bias, I'd bet that you could have them impeached and kicked off the bench. This is my fear, that a lot of these rulings that release illegals back on to the streets are due to racially motivated bias from minority judges. * They need to have their records reviewed to see if there exists a pattern of racial bias, and if so, REMOVE them from the bench. This is more than just some liberal "thwarting" the will of the people. These judges have got to be removed. * Remember that black judge that let off the black thug off, because the young son of the people who he robbed was *afraid* to ID him, because he had a previous encounter with a black thug, and the kid was traumatized but the judge was offended because he thought the kid was "racist"? (he was under 10, very young)

47 Apropos of GMO insulin, I'm grateful for it. I'm not diabetic, but I've had two cats who developed diabetes, and teh vet prescribed a long-acting recombinant DNA insulin on the grounds that it had been shown to increase the remission rate of diabetes in pets. That it did; both my cats went into remission from the diabetes after some months of insulin treatment, and after that they could be managed on dietary adjustments alone. And they lived for several years after going into remission-- they were both senior cats when they developed diabetes, so the GMO insulin helped them live out their normal lifespans.

58 We have a weird diverging intersection in a part of Austin called the "Y". I was behind a convoy of big military type vehicles that got in the wrong lane and physically couldn't just get back over to continue going straight. So a few guys in camo got out and stopped traffic so the convoy could get back on the right track. They were obviously National Guard trying to get to Houston and there was even a smaller convoy of State Police behind them headed in the same direction but they stay in the proper lanes. This was all right when rush hour traffic was starting. No one even honked or got bent out of shape. Of course, Texans generally don't do much honking even in heavy traffic unlike NYC.

I don't think any other race does that. And If he thinks it will be better once that happens, he doesn't have to wait until 2050. He can go to virtually any country outside the US/Canada/Australia/Europe and live in a population that is 100% minority. If he thinks that automatically makes for a better country. It's almost as if he enjoys staying around people he hates because he enjoys verbally abusing them, and that is his main aim.

147 This is a leftist judge protecting a leftist icon.  Palin should appeal.  The errors the NYT's cited were from an incident 6 years before the editorial was published.  In the highly politicized era in which we live, if the Palin had been the inspiration for Gifford's shooting that would have been well known. 

Additionally, the editorial process is a committee process.  More than one person read the editorial prior to publication.  Yet no one objected?  Who do they think they are kidding?

In light of the foregoing, a reasonable person could conclude that the NYT made the erroneous statements purposely.  The suit should go forward.

159 booknlass, seems like there were a number of songs like that back in the 1970s. Another one: "Delta Dawn." (Which is IMHO comical in spots.) Think that one was recorded by someone else. Also, I wonder if a great song like "Delilah" could ever be a hit, or get airplay, today. (Tom Jones confesses that he shot her to death in the song.)

Posted by: Basement Cat at August 30, 2017 10:16 PM (3C9q2) The judge isn't trying to overrule the pardon. From the article, Arpaio's lawyers filed a motion to not only vacate the conviction, but basically to also vacate all rulings and orders leading up to the conviction. The lawyers requested oral argument on their motion so the judge will have that take place prior to issuing an order. I tried to pull up their motion but it's not working for me.

  It is day 2 post surgery for my right eye and I cannot believe the clarity of vision this quickly.  Visual acuity presurgery was very good, I did NOT expect these results in such a short time frame.  If the other eye goes this well, there may be no need for glasses at all.

  The drawback is doing the eye drop routine.

181 Stirewalt and establishment Fox pukes are always trashing Trump with the "there was confusion but the generals will bring order, and constrain Trump's idea of stopping "our" corruption.

Sure, "the political globalist generals" are in bed with the globalist mafia, so have used even the FBI to dismiss traitorous actions by Clinton et. al, and installed Mueller to give unlimited authority to "bully" Trump and his family, or any that defy the Deep State.

So is the disorder really from Trump, or from the DC Mafia that helped Goldman Sachs get away with crimes of the century, that is helping Hillary types establish a "New World Order", not to mention the actual mobsters that laundered a couple billion through HSBC and when caught, got the Mueller/Comey free pass?

Smug arse Stirewalt is so happy to brag how his mafia buds are able to constrain a president elected to drain the swamp of his fascist friend ilk.  A lot of people that sold US out need long prison sentences ... but the smug DC elite sit back and mock true blue America.

If we don't close the borders, we lose, and the cocktail party smug elite pricks will find that their Orwellian future is not so marvelous.  But for now they are thrilled that the deep state massive corruption mafia keeps good people under their fascist control.  They keep sucking up big bucks from the Wall Street money men ... evil incarnate.

193 #104: Good point! You know, there used to be a special type of apple used for cider. It was very bitter and tough, and not suitable for eating, but when it was used for cider you got much more depth to the flavor.

That apple went extinct because of Prohibition. There was no point in growing it, so all the orchards that grew it ripped them out and replaced them with regular edible apples.

Today's ciders are made with those sweeter and crispier apples that people also enjoy eating. If the ciders I've tasted are any indication, ciders have really suffered as a result. They're just cloyingly sweet and flavorless.

The one cider I've really enjoyed was Woodchuck Hopsation. It's made with IPA-style hops, and comes out actually tasting like a crisp green apple thanks to that extra bite from the bitter hop mix.

207 I have been meaning to put up this mini review of a game I started playing, but kept putting it off. It is lunch so here goes: Warframe I picked this up on Steam (free to play) after seeing a review for it on youtube after looking at some stuff for Destiny 2. In short, it is a lot of fun. This is tempered by the fact that it is still a grinding shooter, but the gunplay and movement are extremely good. The F2P model also has the standard pay options for both cosmetic items as well as weapons and armor, however, I would not call it P2W. The system takes a lot of customization to make everything work right for a given character build. This can be increased by paying for items, but it cannot really be circumvented by it. Also, all items aside from a couple cosmetic items are availible to be built in game without paying a cent. The game has a lot of polish considering it is F2P and I would argue is much further along in terms of that than the stuff I have seen on Destiny (which admittedly I did not play, just watched videos because shooter console games are like space herpes.) The story is not bad and the visual art style is definitely distinctive. The graphics are very good when turned up, but what really steals the show are the shooting mechanics and the movement. No game has ever made me actually stop and say "Damn, that was cool' about MOVEMENT mechanics." The cons: It is still F2P so there is a lot of grinding to be done. This aids in getting people to push that button and pay for various things, looking for a shortcut, but I do not find it to be overly burdensome (and yes I have bought a couple cosmetic items.) I looked at buying stuff for the game like buying a game in a series you love- a way to support and appreciate the developer for making a product you really enjoy. The other downside I can see (although it is a Loooong way off because there is a mountain of content to plow through first) is what to do when you have finally gotten a lot of what you want. There is 'endgame' content, I am given to understand, but it is still a function of the standard looter gameplay: get better and more powerful weapons in order to be able to kill bigger/more monsters so you can then get better weapons in order to, etc etc. Sorry for the length. In short: Warframe is a good game, and I would recommend anyone who is bored and plays games to give it a try.

208 Speaking of wild life, I had a yard full of wild turkeys today. Haven't see wild turkeys in ten years or more. No wait, there was a solitary tom last summer. He musta got lucky. There were near twenty in the yard. They weren't nervous about me taking pictures, but I was so excited I forgot what I had to do to the lens to get high quality images. That damn lens doesn't focus when the aperture is wide open. I knew there was something I had to do, but couldn't remember what it was until later. (stop the lens down, and set aperture priority to get better depth of field.)

252 Honking is fantastic. Not just little taps on the horn either, laying on the horn for a good 10 seconds then repeating it 5 times so everyone knows what is going on. It is the dumbass alert equivalent of stranger danger. Good long honks sear the stupidity of their actions in deep so they do not repeat the behavior. honking is simply public shaming.

272 According to wikipedia... Sukiyaki is a Japanese-language song that was performed by Japanese crooner Kyu Sakamoto, and written by lyricist Rokusuke Ei and composer Hachidai Nakamura. Ei wrote the lyrics while walking home from a Japanese student demonstration protesting continued US Army presence, expressing his frustration at the failed efforts.

294 @  210

   The reason for surgery was the appearance (finally) of cataracts.

  I had a long talk with the doctor, and we discussed prompt removal of the cataracts, rather than waiting.  Longer the wait, the more difficult to remove them without damage.

  I had  pics  done to determine if using a laser was indicated, turn out it was.  Both eyes will use the laser procedure.

  Turns out I seem to be one of the lucky few that may not need any type glasses post surgery--we'll see.

  Super pleased with the surgeon, and I have only minor discomfort.  The clarity of vision at this stage was entirely unanticipated, though..

334 "Researchers have developed a vaccine for heroin that prevents users from feeling anything at all after using the drug. This might stop physical addiction, but not the other factors that drive drug abuse, which concerns many addiction specialists."


---------


There is already such a thing. It is called Narcan, and it not only fixes overdose but stops Opiod pain medication from reaching nerve receptors. For addicts this is a very helpful (if unwelcome) thing. BUT things can go horribly badly with it too.





The dickhead anesthesiologist who handling my 16 yr old son's case during his last back surgery (surgery to remove the two inch long bolts from his hip bones that had begun to move as he took a growth spurt causing him excruciating pain) decided to ignore me when I told him that dilaudid did not work for son. The Dickhead gave him dilaudid as he was coming out of the anesthesia after having his back once again cut open from between his shoulders to his butt.  The dilaudid did not work on the pain so he gave him more and then more again until he overdosed, then stopped breathing and they had to put him back on a ventilator. They ended up having to give him narcan which likely saved his life but also wiped out the effects of every bit of pain medication that he had in him. Did I mention that they had just cut a two foot long incision in his back and ripped bolts out of his hips? He was screaming in pain FOR HOURS. And after they were finally able to give him something for the pain once the effects of the narcan wore off, I had to keep shaking him to wake him up because he stopped breathing every time he dozed.





So those medications... they are not all sunshine and roses. And I would gladly support a law that allows parents to horsewhip fucking doctors who thing they fucking know better.

He didn't have the immediate color vision some have because of the type of color blindness he has. It takes about six months to see a difference. He says he can see things he's never seen before about halfway through the adjustment period.

340 The story about Red Cross and Salvation Army compliance with Gleichschaltung (Nazi enforcement of uniform thinking across society/sectors) is pretty depressing.  Though only because I keep forgetting things really are beyond hope now.

Note the key lie - presented as a fact - that PDT's "response" to C'ville was "controversial". 

And the Salvation Army's excuse was the essence of contemporary American inarticulate mendacity.  They've allowed themselves to be caught up in the crap they historically have carefully avoided.

Such a shame.  Years back I worked with the Salvation Army's int'l branch, provided them lots of your money.  They were outstanding.  Truly minimal overhead, took on some of the worst jobs (in humanitarian relief).  Humble, efficient, nice.

    Don't hesitate on the surgery, Hrothgar--this is removing PERMANENTLY a condition that will cause blindness.

   I will freely admit that the thought of having someone poke around in my eyes scared hell out  of me.

   The operation is truly painless, it's done under partial anesthesia, the eye area is numbed so you have NO feeling there at all.

  My criteria was how competent is the doctor, that just means some research to find him/her.

   Biggest point is not to procrastinate.

When the wife and I had to get up at Zero Dark Thirty for commuting, I would tune in WLS just to listen to traffic problems 800 miles away. It can backfire. One winter morning I was getting reports of a massive blizzard and we had to get to work that day. Turns out I accidentally tuned in a Toledo station, not northern Virginia.

416 Every now and then, we will encounter someone who so resembles someone we know, or knew, that it is surprising. There was a girl that I was dating who died in an automobile accident. Years later I encountered a girl who so strongly resembled her that I've never forgotten the moment. Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. Proper term is "doppelgänger". You know, like when you meet some asian ESPN reporter and he strongly reminds you of a Confederate Civil War general.

427 Speaking of AM radio, many small towns in the 1940s, 50s and 60s had low power AM stations that served their immediate community. Usually operated only from dawn to dusk. But they played music (usually 'easy listening' style), local weather, high and low tides (it was an island), high school sports, even what the public schools were serving for lunch that day. And ours, at least, had a local character doing a talk-in show. John Steinbeck mentions these stations in "Travels With Charley" written about 1960. I don't know how many of these small stations are still out there. Like small local newspapers, mostly gone now, they helped keep a community together.

432 Mr. Moore.

The Party you so love has been in pursuit of this very thing as a way to absolute power since you were in Jr. High School. It hasn't worked and was never about the political desires of women, blacks, and/or youths then or now. 

"Thus the McGovern quotas, as virtually everyone who has given any thought to the subject has by now recognized, are unrepresentative even in their own terms. There are, after all, other categories besides blacks, women, and youth. ...

The fact is, however, that the purpose of the McGovern quotas was not to make the convention more representative of the Democratic electorate as a whole, but to favor the affluent liberals within the party and to diminish the influence of its lower-middle and working-class constituents."


http://tinyurl.com/hsf3ntw

As before so it is now. The "liberals" of the New Left desire power. To get it they purged the working people from having any say about what the Democratic Party would do. You and they were never friends of the people who work hard for a living. You're a fat fraud.

463 I had cataract surgery in 2013. Prior to that, I was so nearsighted I could not see the big E on the eye chart without glasses. My correction factor was -13.5 diopters, and cataracts on top of that made it hard to read. The lenses in both of my eyes were removed and replaced. Now my vision is better than 20\20. The replacement lenses were of a kind that can change focus, so I can don't even need reading glasses except for very fine print. Colors are much brighter, too. The cataracts had given everything a dingy yellowish cast, which had developed so gradually that I never noticed until it was gone. Very glad I did it.

498 Ha, I am very familiar with Springfield, it's where I have to go to do any kind of shopping beyond Wal-Mart.
--

A poster on another site says that Bass Pro Shop is on the other side of the woods. Others are saying its the Fastenal parking lot, 2250 E Kearney St.

The guess seems to be that the person went through a drainage spillway and lost their brakes.

One of the other posters asks:"Do you normally drive across a ditch at full speed?  Do you wait on a service road for the presidential motorcade? Do you normally turn the wrong way into traffic? None of what that guy did in the car was normal and the timing was too perfect."

Not sure what to make of it myself.

499 I dunno, it looked like an older lady getting out on the passenger side; my money is it was coincidence and they just lost control at a very unfortunate time and place, or else they were racing to catch a glimpse and hit the gas instead of the brakes.

In their excitement they hit the ditch too hard and killed the car. Looked like a real attempt to ram the Beast. No clue what they thought that would accomplish. Since not a big car and the Beast is a heavyweight.

513 Bass Pro ( it's the Mothership, the original) is several miles from Fastenal, I'd say it was closer to Fastenal, though. But the car made a point, to my eyes anyway, to stay outta the road after it hit the ditch. And the passenger side lady looked dazed and had to put on her glasses. I still say they lost control and were hitting the gas instead of the brakes, but time will tell. Old ladies can be rabidly political, too.

It seems odd that a car, and especially a car full of women, would just suddenly speed out of the woods.

And then they just... stop.

They don't try to get onto the road, and don't try to speed away from the S.S.

577 When driving through LA (I consider everything north or Irvine and south of Thousand Oaks, and everything east out to Pasadena "LA" - so we're talking a huge area) I like to tune into various (mostly AM) ethnic radio stations, mostly just to try and ID them.  Chinese and Vietnamese ones are easy.  I've heard other Asian languages I can't ID (Cambodian?  Thai?).  I think there's Armenian, though I've never found it (I'd definitely recognize it), and Farsi, and probably Amharic or Tigrinya (Ethiopia/Eritrea).  For ethnic eats and possibly radio, there's no other place like it on earth.

597 Oops, I forgot to tell my jury service story today! - I showed up at the court in Downey at the prescribed time a little before 8:30am. - Had to wait until the juror services worker opened the door, right at 8:30. - Went in, filled out my jury summons paperwork (very short), turned it in. - The worker asked a few people about their paperwork. Took about 5-10 minutes. - Then she informed all of us in the jury services room, all 5 of us, that no jury candidates were necessary that day at Downey court. So we could all go home! By now it was about 9am. - Oh, and she gave us all certificates excusing us from jury service until the end of 2018. So, good experience. Never thought I would say it but: thanks, LA County!! ;-) Geez, they almost make it easier for you if you *mess up* than if you just call their jury hotline number 5 nights in a row to check if you're needed.

604 "As prominent sleep researcher John Allan Hobson states 'The only known function of sleep is to cure sleepiness'."

Don't know where this guy "researches", but everything he just said is bullshit. Known functions of sleep include complex endocrine, immunological and anabolic processes which don't occur otherwise.

A big part of the reason people break down from prolonged sleeplessness is because all of that physiologically necessary stuff is being prevented from happening.

619 "Plus he has the finest options money can buy"

In a universe with a functioning sense of justice, John McCain, a veteran, would be getting treatment at the Phoenix VA.

Where hundreds of ill and injured veterans died needlessly due to mismanagement. While McCain was, instead of looking for problems to fix at the VA, busy fulminating and gesticulating trying to start even more preposterous wars.

Needless to say, McCain is not going to the Phoenix VA.

He's going to the ritzy Mayo Clinic across town, which could easily be confused at first glance with a luxury spa resort.

-----

I had a former friend/ co-worker who had what I'll call "sleep issues." Mid 50's, about 5"7", probably 275 or so pounds. Was on a CPAP device.

She was convinced that she did not need much sleep, and, on average, would get about four hours of sleep a night .Or less. She lived on coffee, and, since she had been doing this for years, thought it was fine.

Was if fine? I don't think so. However, you could not convince her that she needed a decent night's sleep every night to function. At one point, her husband lost her job, and her solution was to work all the time to make up for lost income; her stress level was through the roof, and it took a toll on our relationship.

652 The thing I remember about Gene Simmons and Shannon Tweed was some clip of some silly reality show they were doing. Tweed was complaining about how much Gene's "morning dumps" stink. So, that's what I think about when I hear their names now.

653 644 Have you seen the trailers for discovery and what they have done to the klingons? --- No. What network is it going to be on? The only ads I've seen is for The Orville. Posted by: shibumi at August 31, 2017 12:55 AM (aT+Bx) It's so dumb. It's going to premiere on CBS. But only the first episode. All other episodes will only be available on CBS's new streaming service.

654 Navajo Radio on AM is out of Kayenta, iirc. It's pretty cool to listen to for a while when cruising the back roads through Mesa country, slick rock, Canyon Country. "Real" radio stations have a laid back, languid pace. Country music, nothing after about 1985. It will lull you to sleep on a Sunday afternoon. Farm reports, country swaps, etc. The past is a different place it's true. I don't want to live there but I like to visit. Red Steagall's weekly Cowboy Corner has some excellent guests and real music. They do advertise some but it isn't for 12 minutes at a pop.

665 So what I've taken from this is you have a friend hot enough that Gene Simmons and Kratos' crush Shannon Tweed wanted to bang
---
Actually... I'd say no.

My friend was never what you'd call hot; more all american girl type. medium length brown hair, medium height, appropriate weight. Pretty, but not remarkable. Certainly not anyone you'd every look at and go "wow, she's smoking." Typically, if she'd hook up with someone, they would be on the road crew.

Here's my take: she was a partner of opportunity and ease. They had time to kill before the show. She very well might have been one of the only women (outside of the food service girls in catering) working that day, and she has a great personality. They could talk to her, and although she was kind of indiscreet at times, she never gave off the slut vibe. EVER.

So they might have simply sat down to eat with her, liked her and thought "she's not a groupie, so she probably won't be diseased, and we can have a  conversation with her, let's give it a go."

Here's my take on it: celebrities have a lot of money and can do whatever they want. They can indulge in anything. And they do. After a while, everything they do is meaningless and they feel nothing. So they have to do things that are much more extreme just to feel anything at all.

Sex with a stranger is the same as eating a hamburger which is the same as trying on shoes.

It's kind of addressed in the latter part of this Pink Floyd song from The Wall.

I had a chance to interview Vince Gill and Trisha Yearwood at a concert many years ago. The sweetest people on the planet. I would love for Trisha to do an 'unplugged' album of traditional country and folk songs. Or a duet album with Kathy Mattea. Both have angelic voices. SIGH! Had to smile at the "million years ago" comment. That seems to be appropriate more and more. Mrs. JTB and I often mention AFH, which stands for Ancient F'n History.

687 Some years ago (at University) they tangentially touched upon Frankfurt School, Marcuse, Adorno, and some of the world view of the communists whonwere allowed to emigrate to America, and set up shop at the universities. In somewhat more recent years I started paying attention to what was going on socially, there was an undercurrent of the philosophy in just about everything in popular culture and academia. Now in the last 20 years it has been ramped to eleventy, there is no doubt about it. If you want to understand what's going on, you have to study communist subversion and destabilization techniques. The only wonder is why those who are nominally responsible for preventing such things - our politicians and so on - seem incapable of even informing us, much less doing anything about it. They are either stupid or complicit?

691 Most cities know rat woes well. Washington, D.C., for instance, has burned through countless plans to stymie its longstanding "rat problem" or "rodent crisis," in which disease-ridden critters are not only growing in number but ballooning to the size of human infants. What they don't know is how this all will end. Houston, Texas, is seeing a rat spike this year, and so is New York City. In Chicago, rodent complaints for the early part of the summer have increased about 9 percent from last year, forcing city officials to start sprinkling the streets with rat birth control. Philadelphia and Boston were recently ranked the two cities with the most rat sightings in the country. And it's not just this year; as USA Today reported last year, major cities saw spikes in rodent-related business from 2013 to 2015. Calls to Orkin, the pest control service, were reportedly "up 61 percent in Chicago; 67 percent in Boston; 174 percent in San Francisco; 129 percent in New York City; and 57 percent in Washington, D.C."

Yes, that's Gene Simmons.

He's also kind of... um... not thin, not young and not in shape.

When they first went back into makeup, I worked one of their stadium shows.

At one point Gene Simmons standing about six feet in front of me wearing a black spandex unitard that was cut well below his belly button and his very, VERY prominent middle aged gut. He then did one of his blood gags, and consequently, had fake blood dripping down his incredibly pale, fleshy white chest that was covered with matted black hair.

As I gazed at Gene, I thought "Yeah, I guess I can see why women become lesbians."

701 gun story: talked HRH into picking up a tricked out Norinco 1911 from the local toy store.

the stupid wait was up and we were going to get it Saturday, but she had to go into w*rk because of a new patient needing meds.

got home too late, so this Saturday, right?

nope.

seems it, and 29 other guns were stolen 19 years ago out in Moreno Valley (the IE) and it only just now tripped the hot sheet, instead of the 30 day pre-sale waiting period or the 10 day hold. 

so, bummer we don't get it, but it's going back to its rightful owner. on the upside, in the meantime, they got in another weirdo 1911: a ParaOrd frame, with a Springfield slide, two tone bluing and 24 KT gold bits and pieces.

guess we'll be the Saturday, unless she gets another call.

729 Y'all are still up, eh? Blanco, that video was a good one. I got my heart warmed at the grocery store this afternoon: I stopped at the banana section where a young fellow had his little daughter in their cart. I was wearing my Alabama hat and t-shirt, the dad saw it and told his adorbs little daughter to tell me, "Roll Tide." I almost didn't hear her but said hello in return and also said RT back to them both. That small exchange put a smile on my face that has yet to come off. And it has nothing to do with football. I don't know why it touched me like it has, but it has. Must be joy.

734 So Michael Moore is a perfectly explicit white inferiorcist. He wants one race to increase and another to decrease. That it is his own race that he is hostile to makes no difference. Logically this is equivalent to being a racial supremacist (just not for his own race), and ought to equally condemned. Is he just saying that no race should have a majority? No way. He would never say that any black-majority nation should become minority black. No, he just wants the white race to diminish in presence in the world, as any other racial supremacist feels about the races he scorns. Will the left condemn him? I certainly will, just as I condemn the tiny remnant of the Democratic Party's KKK that is offered endless press coverage if they will just say that they support President Trump. Will the press that props these frauds up in order to condemn them now condemn Moore? No, they will eat his shit and their putrefied brains will taste ice cream.

737 Following links at Wikipedia, I was reading about the 1927 Dole Air Race. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dole_Air_Race Boy howdy, what a clusterfuck that was. Most of those people had no damn business trying to fly over the ocean. Some of them had difficulty navigating over land. What did they think would happen? I have the book "The Glory Gamblers" by Lesley Forden. Highly recommended. It's out of print, but easy to find at AbeBooks and Alibris.

738 691 Most cities know rat woes well. Washington, D.C., for instance, has burned through countless plans to stymie its longstanding "rat problem" or "rodent crisis," in which disease-ridden critters are not only growing in number but ballooning to the size of human infants.
As I stand outside of my workplace, I can see the herds of rats out in the fields frollicking. Its almost majestic! Ok, its a park in down town DC but close enough.

743 The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), the singular source of flood insurance for most Americans, is already $23 billion in debt after servicing prior natural disasters, including Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina. Costs from Harvey are expected to increase that debt by billions of dollars. The NFIP, which is overseen by FEMA, has borrowed money from the U.S. Treasury, and thus from taxpayers, in order to keep itself running. That debt is due next month, when the program is also up for reauthorization in Congress.


After Katrina they had all the flood zone maps redrawn to rope more "payers" into the system.  My MIL inside the city limits got roped in on that one.

772 " Russia has reportedly stationed its advanced S-400 anti-missile defense system near an Iranian arms factory in Syria, which allegedly manufactures long-range guided missiles for Hezbollah to use against Israel." Think it could stop 60 tomahawk missiles? The biggest deal right now is to be able to reload launchers at sea. Real Russian (and Chinese) interference is any congressman or senator who votes against creating that system.
