Happy Father's Day to the hardworking dads, supportive moms, and loving and dutiful sons and daughters of JOM!

Yep, happy Dad's day to all; it's noon and I'm still waiting for a single one of my kids to call me, hmphh.

hrtshpdbox,

I was very blessed to have had a great man as a father. Very eccentric; always liked to dress formally. Born in Tripoli, North Africa, which was an Italian colony at the time. Came to this country from Sicily at the age of 12 and was making honor roll in public school within a couple of years of landing here. Went to City College and St. John's Law School, while working in the FADA radio factory in Long Island City, New York. Someone in my family still has the radio he made for my grandmother there--it has a wooden cabinet and he gave it an extra coat of lacquer. Served under MacArthur in WWII in the Signal Corps, and stayed in the reserves for another 25 years after. God Bless all of the great fathers out there, and the not so great ones as well.

If Trump is polling high 40's or low 50's, how is it that Biden beats him by 10? It doesn't make sense.

As to the banning o conservatives, I guess this is the Left's version of net neutrality.

matt,

In my opinion they manipulate the polls in order to get the results they want. Of course it doesn't make sense, any more than watching those huge Trump rally crowds during the campaign and then Nate Silver saying Hillary had a 98% chance of winning.

So my best friend was flying up from St Pete. Crash landing at NEWARK, had him diverted to DULLES, not flights left to Milwaukee. He gets a flight into O'HARE, so. YOU GUESSED it, I drive to O'HARE 2 hours south, then I drive US to the cabin. 7 ours north. Got to the cabin at 2 am, left my house at 5:30.
But I'm about to tuck into some walleye.
9 hours driving to get here. Wow.

Some interesting tidbits in the NYT obit of Zeffirelli.

He joined Communist partisan forces, first fighting Mussolini’s Fascists and then the occupying Nazis. Captured by the Fascists, he was saved from the firing squad when his interrogator miraculously turned out to be a half brother whom he had never known. The half brother arranged his release....

Twice elected to the Italian Parliament, Mr. Zeffirelli was an ultraconservative senator, particularly on the issue of abortion. In a 1996 New Yorker article, he declared that he would “impose the death penalty on women who had abortions.” He said his extreme views on the subject were colored by the fact that he himself was born out of wedlock despite pressure brought to bear on his mother to terminate her pregnancy.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

A guy asked a girl in a library:

“Do you mind if I sit beside you?”

She answered with a loud voice: “I don’t want to spend the night with you!!”

All the students in the library started staring at the guy, and he was embarrassed.

After a couple of minutes, the girl walked quietly to the guy’s table, and she told him “I study psychology and I know what a man is thinking. I guess you feel embarrassed, right?”

The guy responded with a loud voice “$200 for just one night? That’s just too much!”

And all the people in the library looked at the girl in shock, and the guy whispers in her ear “I study law and know how to make someone feel guilty.”

Historical trivia deemed irrelevant or

The significance of Father’s:

In The Common Law of England, 198. N2, Sir Edward Coke states:

Persons born beyond the seas, if their fathers or paternal grandfathers were natural born subjects, are likewise made so, though with an exception of some unfavourable persons.... Liegeus is ever taken for a natural born subject... Liegeance, a liegando, being the highest and greatest obligation of duty and obedience that can be. Liegance is the true and faithful obedience of a liegman or subject to his liege lord or sovereign. Alliegeance is born of faith: alliegeance is the essential law.

Clarice & GUS,

Remember the Blue Goose of Northeast Airlines? To get to my project in Marquette, MI (The UP:) I take one from National now Reagan, to O'Hare then switch to the Snow Bus: O'Hare to Iron Mountain or Escanaba then onto Marquette.

We had a Chinese guy who was our Structural Engineer, and every month he would come up to go over the iron works with our crew. One time he was on the same NE flight as me and our Labor relations guy. We landed in Escanaba and here he came down the aisle with a roll of blueprints under his arm. Our LR guy asked him, "Frank, where are you going?". Frank answered "To jobsite see Cooper (our Project Super).'

"Sit down, Frank unless you want to walk a hundred miles in 6 feet of snow:)".

Those were the days!

Gave an interview to a local TV station. It will never see airtime.

Short story is there was a heinous murder here of a teenage girls by two scum bags in the 80's. Cuomo's parole board is going to let them out. Trust me these people should never see the light of day and have shown zero remorse. They did it. There is no question.

Anyway, the TV bobble head asked me what I though. I said that every person who voted Democrat, like it's a team sport in the last election should take a good long look in the mirror because they own this. Ditto so called media organizations who allege to be impartial when they are nothing but cheerleaders for Democrats. I told her NY has become the very essence of de Tocqueville's Tyranny of a majority (she said who? Duh) and that people might want to read more books and educate themselves, instead of frothing at the mouth every time Democrats throw them some live meat. I further told her that none of this should surprise any Democrat voter because the party is all about negative liberty. It's always about what they are going to take away from the citizens, because they say so, and it has zero to do with law and constitution. So enjoy the fact your child can be murdered and the Democrats will let the killer go free. After all it makes sense since they will now allow you to kill your baby right up until birth.

The mouth breathing TV dope was stunned.

Like I said, it probably was deleted five minutes after I spoke.

USA POWERLIFTING FEDERATION PREPARES TO DEFEND TRANSGENDER ATHLETE POLICY IN COURT

USA Powerlifting is facing a discrimination complaint in Minnesota over its transgender athlete policy after it said JayCee Cooper, a biological man, couldn’t compete in women’s events. The federation’s president told The Daily Caller it’s prepared to go to court to keep the policy in place, and framed the policy as protecting the federal rights of women.

“At some point, we are going to have to defend the biology and stand on women being a protected class, and it might as well start in Minnesota,” Larry Maile, USA Powerlifting president, told the Caller. The policy is not new, but the federation commissioned a group of experts to find out if it’s backed by science earlier this year, after the dispute with Cooper thrust them into the media spotlight late last year. The results were clear: It’s unfair to allow biological men to compete with women.

Hear hear. I see women powerlifters training all the time. It's very hard work, and takes a lot of effort and determination.

Just as an example, the men's bench press record is 738 lbs. The women's record is 457. Thousands of men can bench over 500, but obviously no woman has ever come close.

The other events have similar comparisons.

Allowing men to compete with women would be very discouraging to the female competitors and would surely ruin the sport.

Hard to believe that powerlifting would become one of the institutions Gramsci felt they had to march through.

“Like other athletes, [Cooper] worked to ensure that she met the stated policies for competition, and went above and beyond by addressing any potential questions about her gender identity, only to have USA Powerlifting respond with a new, retroactive blanket ban on transgender athletes,” Gender Justice said in a statement announcing the filing.

...

“Gender Justice says we have been charged,” he said. “That is propaganda language. You are charged in a criminal complaint. Not only is that not the case, but they have filed a complaint with the human rights commission, and we get to answer it. If the commission rushes to judgment, we will litigate it for denial of due process.”

...

“To allow those born and who went through puberty as males to compete as females would be inherently discriminatory against a federally protected class: women,” Maile said in a prepared statement obtained by the Caller. “Further, allowing transgender males to use androgens when no other category of athlete is allowed them represents and unfair advantage of these individuals over those born as men and who are not allowed such use.”

It seems unlikely that anyone could have "addressed any potential questions about 'her' gender identity."

This may be the case that beats back the pro-trans horde.

I saw a snapping turtle laying eggs this morning, and I guess another two or three turtles were here during the day because I have multiple freshly dug and filled-in holes. I live on a river, which is about 10' or so below the edge of the back lawn, but the turtles climb up and lay their eggs every year. And every year, I see the holes dug up and pieces of eggshells all over the place. So this time...

I went to Lowe's and found rectangular wire baskets that were big enough to cover the nests. Topped off with cinder blocks and a large rock, they may hold. I think I'll get some fence staples tomorrow if they do.

That was a hell of a shot on 9 from Woodland.
