How to keep what you step in off of what you touch while climbing ladders:

“We have trained the guys only to grab the rails of the ladder,” he said.

What do the customers grab?

I once had a discussion with a man who owned fruit orchards in California. He said pickers were not allowed to place their hands on the ladder rungs--I suppose this is how this orchard avoids contamination, too.

Clarice Feldman

Tom M beat me to it.

Clarice Feldman

BTW the growe told me there is virtually no difference in California between how organic and not organic fruit is grown because the state regs are so strong in either case re use of pesticides.

And somehow, mankind survived the thousands of years without mindless government bureaucrats insisting that acres of land be perfectly cleaned of mouse droppings.

I mentioned on previous thread that when I was 12 my dad had bought a farm in Keesville, NY next to the Forrence family orchards. Largest Macintosh growers in America. These days the us over 200 Jamaicans for the 8 week harvest. H-2A visa program. The newer pickers have to work first two years with an experienced picker. There is skill in picking.

don't they ash the apples before dumping them in pies? Peculiar place, that New York.

I doubt anyone can make a valid case for a single illness being directly attributed to mouse droppings that made it onto shoes, that made it unto ladder rungs, that made it unto picker's hands, that made it on to apples, that never got washed, that were eaten by some unsuspecting rube.

This is exactly why after shooting the journalists, next are the bureaucrats.

I’m embarrassed to say that after reading this phrase I found myself saying, “Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.”

Buckeye,

Ditto that recommendation. But I think the Ten Eyck's response by having the pickers use the side rails is only to grant the fucking beaucrat their day in the sun. I doubt a 5th generation orchard owner wouldn't use the same logic and science you did.

Nelson eats moose poops and frozen dog poops@#$%

I spend a quarter of my Nelson dog walk time picking up Nelson's turds. (I don't pick up Fry or Scouts turds since they know how not to shit in the neighbor yards.)

For dog walk turd picker uppers, picking up those turds hygienically are tough when you actually try to pick them up in outlawed plastic bags, especially when it's a hot steaming' pile at 20 F.

I suppose I wash my hands as much as any Alaskan guy or gal washes his or her hands when scooping up turds but not more so.

On average we have 40 non-human biological parasitic host species inhabiting our mouth.

So what were you guys saying again about invisible mouse turds?

Essentially it suggests Mueller went after Flynn because a woman accused McCabe of harassment and Flynn defended her. So it was revenge.

Just like they were two reasons for going after scooter Libby, for the sdny it was revenge for the mark rich defense, for others in the bureaucracy it was interfering in the alliances with certain interests from the kingdom, like the alamoudis (have you noticed their fate has not been brought up again)

NBC Orders Its Employees to Rat Out Sexually-Harassing Fellow Employees, Or Be Fired

And reportedly you're supposed to just snitch out on mere affairs of simple office romances, too:
A source says, "Romantic relationships at work are not exactly unusual, but now NBC says it is taking a zero-tolerance approach. Staffers have been told that if they find out about any affairs, romances, inappropriate relationships or behavior in the office, they have to report it to human resources, their superior or the company anti-harassment phone line. Staffers are shocked that they are now expected to snitch on their friends.["]

Plus their are rules on hugging -- it must be a brief hug (actually, I think they should just ban hugs between people who are not relatives by blood or marriage; they're abominations) and even more silly rules about taxis and steak:

"Also there's strict rules about socializing, including [not] sharing taxis home and [not] taking vegans to steakhouses."

The most recent mutation of feminism tried to portray itself as "sex-positive," as opposed to the militantly anti-sex positioning of, say, Andrea Dworkin. They not only claimed to be totally fun and cool and into sex, but affirmatively championed pure sluttiness.

This always struck me as a marketing claim and not nearly the truth of the product being sold. Despite claiming to be the frisky, sex-positive pro-slut people, you couldn't miss the stridently anti-sex (at least anti-sex-with-men) prudery of their actual message.

College Student Expelled for Rape Found Not Guilty by Jury in 28 Minutes

“There were aspects of the investigation that were not as thorough as it could have been,” said Assistant Solicitor Drew Evans, who prosecuted the case, “and the detective acknowledged this.”
DebinGA

From Jane's 9:29:
"A 16-year veteran with outstanding work performance reviews and accomplishments, Gritz alleges McCabe, along with other senior management, made it impossible for her to do her job and obstructed her ability to move up the ranks. ... She eventually filed an Equal Employment Opportunity Complaint [EEOC] in 2013 for sexual discrimination and a hostile work environment against McCabe and other superiors. In 2012 she received the only negative review in her career with the FBI, and it was conducted by the same supervisor she had named in her EEOC."

Ext (9:58):

Spidering out to Post and Courier story that is the original source, it sounded like the gentleman "had relations" with that woman. and she was, indeed, drunk. (If she's puking...she's probably in no shape to give consent).

The jury probably made the right decision on this, given the missing evidence, but I am feeling less sympathetic to the defendant than usual.

Was the expelled defendant in a position to "give consent," or was he drinking also?

James D.

The story about the Australian woman murdered by the Somalian cop who won't talk to investigators bothers me more than the Kate Steinle murder.

It's absolutely appalling that the killer is allowed to simply refuse to cooperate with the investigation, and that's then used as an excise for not moving forward with the investigation.

If a private citizen shot an innocent, unarmed person, and then refused to talk to police or answer any questions about it, would that stop the DA from prosecuting them? I think not. I think if it were any of us in the cop's position, we'd be rotting away in prison for the rest of our lives. Does anyone doubt that for a second?

We don't allow being drunk to excuse criminals from responsibility, so I don't see how getting drunk allows a woman to claim rape over something that happened because she got drunk. Granted it might have been rape in this case, but there still has to be evidence and proof beyond reasonable doubt. And as ext points out, he may have been drunk as well.

Extraneus

Two 28-year-olds get drunk and have sex, but it's the man who gets expelled, arrested, jailed, pays bail & attorney fees, and finally gets acquitted in 28 minutes, his life basically ruined. Yet the woman is the victim because she was drunk.

I don't know why the DA doesn't charge both cops and if the Somali piece of shit's partner doesn't want to get convicted let him start blabbing away. Something is badly missing from this case and it's mainly the lack of people willing to do the right thing.

College Now Offers ‘Social Justice’ Major For Students

Merrimack College, a Roman Catholic institution located in Andover, Mass., now offers social majors the chance to “turn their passion for change, human rights and a more just world into a career,” according to the major description. The course of study seeks to prepare students for advocacy and human rights work within local community organizations as well as in larger settings within national and international non-governmental organizations.

The college also began hosting “Social Justice Week” in 2013. The event offers workshops, lectures, and discussions on topics like gender pronouns, police shootings, cultural diversity and financial exclusion.

More than 100 colleges and universities in the U.S. offer “social justice” academic programs that give students credit for studying intersectionality, privilege, oppression, racial minorities and gender pronouns, according to the College Fix. The College Fix also found that 64 American colleges offer minors in social justice, 18 offer four-year social justice degrees, and 15 offer social justice master’s degrees.

What in hail is "financial exclusion"?

My dad retired from Ford Motor Co. and his last job was "Government Regulations Coordinator". It was so ironic because my dad hated government regulations!

He made a very nice salary and his entire job was to make sure they complied with every single tiny regulation, to keep abreast of all new regulations, etc.

Now multiply that across all companies, large and small, and think of the price of complying!

Poogan's hot steaming piles end up in our tree lawn, the space between our sidewalk and the street.

I don't try picking them up immediately, as managing that with him tugging on the leash to go squirrel chasing is difficult. Don't know how you do it with three big 'uns.

About every 2-3 days a take a bucket and the pooper scooper out and retrieve the piles. Much easier after they have dried out a bit:)

That the Gas Chamber of Crony Capitalism concentrates more on garbage like DACA than removing the scourge of SarBox points out its skewed agenda.

We had a sexual and cultural revolution [vive la revolucion] that normalized behavior that has always occurred, although probably at a lower rate.
With new norms come new problems like the lack of shame of some bimbo getting puke faced drunk, screwing some relative stranger and then not being too ashamed to try to toss him in jail for behavior we've been told is normal and was not markedly different from hers.
Next step is a guy in such a situation preemptively accuses the girl of rape to protect himself.

The minute I heard the phrase "compassionate conservatism" I viewed him with a gimlet eye, politically.
Personally I considered him quite honorable.
As a president he prevented some bad things happening but overall was a bit of a disaster.

I remained convinced he was a personally honorable man throughout Barry's rain of error.
However, his muted but unmistakable undercutting of Trump and perhaps even more so his apparently genuine affection for the foremost cad, flim flam man and scallywag of the modern era, the scabrous Billy Jeff, has largely left me less than fond of the man who will be remembered by liberty lovers everywhere as the guy who thought he had to abandon the free market to save it and that the middle east was full of nascent Jeffersonian democrats just waiting burst forth in bloom when watered with enough American blood and treasure and fertilized with enough American bodies.

NYT's Paul Krugman: 'Pink Pussy Hats' Are the 'Symbol of Our Delivery from Evil'

Early this year the commentator David Frum warned that the slide into authoritarianism would be unstoppable “if people retreat into private life, if critics grow quieter, if cynicism becomes endemic.” But so far that hasn’t happened.

What we’ve seen instead is the emergence of a highly energized resistance. That resistance made itself visible literally the day after Trump took office, with the huge women’s marches that took place on Jan. 21, dwarfing the thin crowds at the inauguration. If American democracy survives this terrible episode, I vote that we make pink pussy hats the symbol of our delivery from evil.

Cue the copulating barn animals.

The Infamous Ignatz

--That's like parking your car unlocked in a bad part of town.--

Lewis Hamilton Apologises After Telling Nephew ‘Boys Don’t Wear Dresses’ in Social Media Video

Formula One champion driver Lewis Hamilton apologised Tuesday evening for posting a video to social media of him celebrating Christmas with his family, in which he tells his young nephew that “Boys don’t wear princess dresses!”. Referring to the Christmas day post which he has since deleted, Hamilton wrote on micro-blogging platform Twitter Wednesday that ” I was playing around with my nephew and realised that my words were inappropriate so I removed the post. I meant no harm and did not mean to offend anyone at all. I love that my nephew feels free to express himself as we all should.”

Continuing to disavow his instinctive reaction upon seeing his nephew wearing girls clothes, Hamilton wrote: “My deepest apologies for my behaviour as I realise it is really not acceptable for anyone, no matter where you are from, to marginalise or stereotype anyone.

“I have always been in support of anyone living their life exactly how they wish and I hope I can be forgiven for this lapse in judgement.”

The princess dress episode is not the first social media incident for the driver. Breitbart reported in 2015 after Hamilton was ordered by his race boss to take down a video and photographs of himself enjoying time on a rifle range hitting targets with an AR-15 rifle.

Ukrainian Chess Master Refuses To Wear Saudi Women’s Robe, Gives Up Title

A chess grandmaster was forced to surrender her title for refusing to wear a traditional Arab robe in a major chess tournament held in Saudi Arabia. Ukrainian Anna Muzychuk pulled out of the the King Salman World Rapid and Blitz Chess Championship in Riyadh when the tournament’s organizers told her that she would need to wear an abaya, a full-length robe women must wear when they go out in Saudi Arabia.

Muzychuk’s surrender of the title on Tuesday is not the first controversy to strike the Saudi tournament. On Monday, a day before the championship began, the Israeli Chess Federation said it would seek financial compensation after Saudi authorities denied visas to seven Israeli competitors in the tournament.

“In a few days I am going to lose two World Champion titles — one by one,” the 27-year-old Muzychuk wrote on Facebook on Saturday. “Just because I decided not to go to Saudi Arabia. Not to play by someone’s rules, not to wear abaya, not to be accompanied getting outside and altogether not to feel myself a secondary creature,” Muzychuk was quoted by the Algemeiner as saying.

“Exactly one year ago I won these two titles and was about the happiest person in the chess world but this time I feel really bad. I am ready to stand for my principles and skip the event, where in five days I was expected to earn more than I do in a dozen events combined,” she added.
