Note carefully what is being discussed today regarding Firearms:

1. Ban Assault Weapons. DECODED: any firearm that looks SCARY/EVIL. When asked, many do not know what "assault weapon" means.

2. Universal Background Checks. DECODED: private firearm sales/transfers prohibited as we, meaning government, cannot track firearms without a "transfer" being recorded.

3. Gun Registration. DECODED: we need to make sure we know who has what so we can confiscate them.

4. Common Sense Gun Laws. DECODED: whatever we say they are, if you disagree you want more kids to die.

Make no mistake, they do want to take away firearms from people, just little by slowly. Do not give an inch, lest they be emboldened to take a mile or 10.

If someone chooses not to exercise their rights, it is ok but how much weight would you place on their statements regarding same? Have no experience, better to ask questions instead of making statements of which you have no place making.

Current snow in the Indy metro are is 6.5". North of city at Eagle Creek, 7.3".

Still snowing, although not quite as hard.

No snow here. 36 and 20mph winds.

henry,

I think we got the normal Wisconsin weather!

Although the NWS says 6.5, it looks to me like close to 10 inches outside.

Sounds like it Miss M! The only thing you can do is beer, cheese, and brats!

Have no idea if Trump has pulled a fast one on them, but have to hope -- plus, the expression on his face in this picture might be what he's feeling if he did. Couldn't help bringing it over from last thread:

Welp, I've had a Citibank AA mileage card for around 20 years or so, and we use it for everything in order to maximize the mileage credit, so Citi gets a serious cut out of my household spending. Just applied for a new card that will result in that cut permanently going to $0 within weeks.

We don't have Kroger nearby and I've already hated the Patriots for decades, so that's not a problem.

I cut the cable cord months ago, and Time Warner has been sending me pleadings ever since. The latest, actually pretty smart, is $21.99/mo for 10 channels I can pick. Somewhat tempting, since I do kind of miss the Cartoon Network.

Any other virtue-signaling leftist companies I can cut off?

Simmering ossabuco at the moment here, thanks to Jack for the idea. Don't like the Silver Spoon much for Italian food, though; I'm more of an Ada Boni type. Going with her recipe from Italian Regional Cooking, not the Talisman. (Talisman calls for water and wine instead of tomatoes and wine.)

Was it Jane who uses chicken stock and wine?

I think we are done. But then the weather guy says possibly more snow.

Where is Al Gore and what the hell is he spewing. Shut up Al, we need sun and nice weather.

Beautiful day for our march in the St. Paddy's Day parade. Got lots of applause and cheers. The Bishop is not from here and may have misunderestimated the fire and fury of the East End. This is another history lesson of how the powers to be think the population down island runs how the population up island should think and react.

Good evening! My 85 year old mother is visiting us. She thinks the the march in DC is just wonderful. I said,Mom these kids are being manipulated. She just sputtered.
I was going to mention Bob Kraft lending the plane to the Giffords gun control organization,because it was all over the New England media yesterday. Finally,the local news here in Florida covered a local march and a purple haired,pierced nose mother told a reporter how proud she was of her daughter for marching. What a world.

I survived the shooting, and like 300 million other Americans, I was no where near this high school.
I also survived the Kennedy assasination, the Cuban missile crisis, the VietNam adventure, two Gulf wars, 9/11, Chappaquiddick, and the movie Ishtar.

I think this makes me a bit more qualified to add some wisdom than this pathetic rabble of teens.

That was it, sorry. I would think beef stock might work, too, so that's four simple variations, all worth trying. Ada says one MUST have rice, and of course all pics show risotto, but I was thinking polenta, or maybe plain white rice. TBD.

Wow, Miss Marple the Deplorable, that's a fine dusting of Glowball Warming you got there. There was a stiff east wind that kept the snow to the south and out of the Twin Cities. SW MN got up to 11 inches.

Great, amom. He laid it all out, and knowingly exposed himself and his family, just like MM says.

If Kennedy retires or Ginsburg croaks, the gun grabbing game is over, at last for the foreseeable future.

Since I'm a nice guy, I'm hoping for Kennedy to go before Ginsburg.

Is anyone besides me hoping that Ginsburg retires before croaking?

Kennedy is expected to retire this summer. Ginsburg will be enbalmed on the bench. She's nuts.

The freepers have gassed out. They don't have a clue if there is a poison pill in the bill.

If the poison pill is that Trump will get a useless dog and pony show wall because the military budget allows it due to clever language in an unread bill I will be disappointed.

matt - deplore me if you must

Not snowing here and the "atmospheric river" was pretty much just a rainstorm. I do think they will be skiing at Mammoth until July 4 again.

You have to love the way the Left manipulates language and meaning. They have it down to a science. This how Orwell saw the Soviets redefine linguistics in the 1930's.

controlled language - check

restricted grammar and limited vocabulary - check

linguistic design meant to limit the freedom of thought—personal identity, self-expression, and free will - check

The reality is that we really do have thoughtcrime now. "Hate Speech" is anything the Left does not agree with.

And the media/political/Hollywood sex scandal in its about face on the interaction of the sexes is a perfect example of Newspeak. Freedom is slavery. Goodsex is now sex crime.

To paraphrase Orwell, the Uniparty seeks power entirely for its own sake. They are not interested in the good of others; they are interested solely in power, pure power.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Threadkiller,

I fail to understand why you would be disappointed that he will build the wall because the democrats are stupid.

Here, read this thread and see if it makes you feel better. Remember, he told the press that after about 20 minutes of reading the bill they would understand why he signed it:

As a Bearcat who was there in 1963, my heart may be broken but it is perfectly happy to see our honorable adversary, Loyola, destroy K State and make the big dance. They are going to be hard to beat because they are too disciplined and team basketball smart.

Threadkiller

"The Wall" is a political tool to rally lock her uppers into voting. Sure we need all the votes we can get, but denying that this is a swamp trick bugs me.

Do I think this technique, if true, to get funding gives the appearance of a standing Army on US soil locking us in is a bad image. Yes.

This wall plan isn't directly on the border. It is set back enough that all the asylum seekers aren't forced to ports of entry. Neither are the anchor baby factories. I honestly think nobody is paying attention to that aspect.

As far as the Dems being stupid, I think you meant the uniparty being stupid. Or do you think Paul Ryan gangsters were in on it with Trump?

I am ready to stand and fight shoulder to shoulder with the person who gave this speech:

https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings-statements/the-inaugural-address/

Smoke and mirrors wasn't mentioned that day.

I am glad he racked up all the money possible for the military. Wictor is glad we can Bolton Iran. Lots of happy people.

However, I don't want the military being in charge of walling us in.

Border Patrol can do a good job without a zillion mile monolith. An even better job if the barriers were actually on the border, not inland.

The Wall is political all the way.

Jack is Back!

So, TK, you are perfectly happy that the same military controls our rivers and wetlands so we don't suffocate from flooding?

Threadkiller

That twitter thread tells me that both TPamela64 and I have no clue what the letters to the speaker mean.

Do they mean that under the guise of "the war on terror" any funded money can do any damn thing the executive wants them to do?

If so, isn't that worrisome?

Threadkiller

The war on terror controls locks and dams.

Tk,

Always has. Your alternative or solution?

Not the politicians in New Orleans, for example.

Threadkiller

I gave my alternative many times.

The Gavel Walk.

I won't explain it again.

The same kind of harmonic convergence thinking is present in Puerto Rico, where they protest because power is off, underpants gnome strategy...profit.

I may have misunderstood.

The "war on terror" controls the locks and dams?

Captain Hate

matt, not that I care what happened to a lightweight apparatchik like him, but I'm firmly convinced that Lauer was forced out at NBC at Tub Dive's demands after he committed the crime of asking her moderately uncomfortable questions at the dog show non debate they had.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Well, I understand your objections, Threadkiller, but I don't agree with them.

The Wall is set back because if you are exactly on the border you will have Mexican troops harassing the Corps of Engineers. That is reality.

Since 2001 I have seen reports of stuff found on the border, including trash with Arabic writing, oddball things like grenades, tickets from European airlines, etc. I have also seen reports of non-Mexicans being apprehended as they crossed. This does not count the drugs which cross the border or the MS-13 gangs.

The border IS a national security issue. I have no problem with it being built by the Corps of Engineers. If this had been a straight-forward bill with Congressional approval, I imagine the Corps would have built a good portion of it anyway.

The Corps of Engineers is not some weird Nazi-like group from the Defense Department. It is a long-standing and well-respected division which protects and improves dams, waterways, and locks. The Wall is simply another edifice that will ensure the safety of Americans, and I am glad there might be a way that they can start building it on Monday.

I've been taking Niagen for about a year. It's a different form of the same thing. I can't recommend it highly enough. After taking it for three days, as I was walking through the living room, my wife said, "You don't walk like an old man any more."

TK,

Times are different and the Mexican government is increasingly dependent on remittances and having illegals cross as a safety valve.

I don't know what went on when the fences and bollard wall was erected, so I am assuming since you are in California you are more aware than me.

It's a different time, and Mexico doesn't like Trump and would be more than happy to have a border incident.

Yes, that's the stuff, and it is truly amazing. The older you are, the better it works.

MM,
Found out a little while back that Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) takes it, too, and agrees that it's amazing.

henry

Buford, that is interesting. I had autonomic nerve tests a couple weeks ago, and just learned that I have mild dysautonomia. (The tech that read the results didn't know what they meant aside from odd, and I have a follow up with the neurologist in two weeks). I know vitamin B of some sort is helpful, except one of the B's makes things worse. I made a note to ask. :)

MM: The Corps of Engineers is not some weird Nazi-like group from the Defense Department. It is a long-standing and well-respected division which protects and improves dams, waterways, and locks

Umm. Not so much. Entirely political if our local experience holds true. Obama had his thumb all over it.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

Buford Gooch,

Thanks so much! I will order some tomorrow.

I take a Vitamin B supplement but it is just your generic CVS B pill. I am excited to give it a try!

anonamom

narc, what was the thyroid test--

TSH?
T3?
T4?

There is no single "thyroid reading."

****

MM, don't spend your money yet---just stop getting the light from the screen after seven for a week and see how you sleep.
You are getting TONS of blue light( unless you have the filters) , which keeps your melatonin from bing released. Melatonin helps us sleep.

Buford Gooch

MM,
Niagen is a form of vitamin B3. It's the first shelf stable nicotinamide riboside. It's a direct precursor of NAD+. A little research will tell you a lot.

tsh, under .04, last time it was 1.1

No I haven't, should I start?

sbw

Ig, all my test results come with a normal range for the test.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

anonamom,

I know about the light thing, but even when I sign off and read for a couple of hours, I still have the problem.

Also, when I was in the old house and on the computer just as much, I didn't have a problem at all.

The problem only started about 6 months ago. Now it seems I can only sleep about 4 hours at a time.

If I had the constitution of Donald Trump, it wouldn't matter. However, I wake up alert but then get tired and need to sleep again about 3 hours later.

I suppose this wouldn't be a big deal since I don't work, but it bugs me because I like an orderly day, and stopping everything to go back to bed between 10 and 2 is not helpful.

I am also interested in the vascular improvements that they talk about, since I had that weird episode in late November and I have high blood pressure.

I will give it a 3-month try and report back. If it's a dud then I will drop it.

Miss Marple the Deplorable

sbw,

I imagine each division in different states is characterized by who is the officer in charge. Indiana hasn't had problems.

Do keep in mind that Trump and Mattis will be running thee show, which should change attitudes considerably.

sbw

MM, there isn’t a bureaucracy in the world taht doesn’t have to be managed.

And the idea that centralization is necessarily better is a fantasy.

cathyf
I was asking yesterday about a thyroid reading under .1 should one be concerned.
Narciso, is this your TSH? If yes, that's too low. Did the lab give you reference ranges? My lab (LabCorp in Dublin, OH) says normal is 0.45-4.5. Ideal is considered 1-3, although my endocrinologist says that if you have hypothyroid he would really like you to be more like 1 than 3. But you also need more than one measurement, since mine, at least, does wander around some, and it takes awhile to recover after changing my Synthroid dose...

The danger of hyperthyroid is that it can screw around with your cardiac function, and kill you pretty suddenly. (As opposed to hypothyroid, which kills you slowly.)
