James D.

I’m fine with the deluge at this point. It’s overdue.

Here’s the thing. For all my talk, I don’t know if I would be willing to risk my career and endanger my family to tell ugly truths if I knew my collesgue or coworkers were part of an Epstein situation .

BUT, I am also not writing under the banner of “All the news that’s fit to print” or “democracy does in darkness”. I’m not patting myself on the back in the National media for being a guardian of democracy and fearless and all the rest of the self-congratulatory crap the Times and other MSN outlets say about themselves. I’m not declaring myself a morally superior public servants who’s sacrificing myself for the dumber, less educated masses who are clamoring for my guidance.

THEY call themselves elite. THEY tell us every day in a thousand ways that they are better than us - smarter, better educated, wiser, more caring, more empathetic, morally superior, better in every way. THEY can either start living up to all the things they tell us they are - the things that they say give them the right to rule over the rest of us - or they can step down from their lofty perches and shut the hell up.

Keto question: is celery w/ peanut butter good?

How does one make it to adulthood without eating ants on a log?

For keto, it would be "ants on vacation" (no raisins).

Porchlight,

Celery with pepanut butter (and sometimes raisins) were staples at my grade school cafeteria, because they got those huge, 5-pound cans of peanut butter from government surplus.

My dad used to get some of those cans at the end of the school year when the cafeteria managers were cleaning out storage. THAT was the peanut butter you had to stir, because the oil was at the top. It was really good, though.

Also great for a family with 5 kids. We occasionally got raisins, too. Those came in plastic bags within 12 x 12 cartons. That is why every woman in my family makes oatmeal-raisin cookies as her first choice when baking. LOL!

The Infamous Ignatz

The only thing I don't like about the Kaus article is he ignores completely the critical role Mike Cernovich played in opening that can of worms back up after it had been successfully sent through the MSM cannery.

Porchlight

MM, you just can't beat oatmeal raisin.

Porchlight

Cernovich has problems but he certainly contributed in that instance, Iggy.

Apparently young people want the adults to join in this on september 20. https://globalclimatestrike.net/

Our civilization is standing on the precipice of a cliff. One million species are facing extinction by the end of the century. Insect populations, upon which we depend for our food, are collapsing. Phytoplankton populations, upon which we depend for our oxygen, are collapsing. The global climate crisis threatens our planet with famine, droughts, hurricanes, floods, wildfires, climate-enforced migration and war. The burning of fossil fuels is the primary cause of all of this.

After decades of governmental and societal failure to tackle the climate crisis, mass resistance may now represent our greatest hope for curtailing the worst ravages of climate breakdown.

Celery filled with cream cheese and diced green olives is delicious and keto friendly.

I sub raisins with chocolate chips on my “ants on a log”. I use the semi-sweet ones.

Jim, all processed food has carb count per serving on the label; everything else has it available if you google (or whatever you use) it.

The wonderful thing about HFLC (high fat low carb)(often called keto) eating is that it is both as easy as can be, and something you are in charge of, totally--there are no "good" or "bad" ---you figure out how many carbs a day you want to consume, and you decide how they get inside of you. (A common rec is thirty a day, to start, if weight loss is desired.)
You will see that Compari has quite a bit of sugar in it, as does sweet vermouth, so instead of Negronis, you may chose to ingest your gin with diet tonic.
You will see that peanut butter has four grams of carbs per tablespoon, so you may chose to go with cream cheese and chopped green olives--zero carbs--filling your celery--or maybe not, if it's peanut butter you want, and you had eggs and bacon for breakfast, so not a carb has passed your lips all day.

But you be the boss of you! Eat what YOU like. Allot your carbs as you see fit. Even clarice, who swore she would never go low carb as she would not give up her bread, has figured out how she can have her cake and eat it too!

MissMarple2

rse,

Anyone believing that will be non-violent hasn't watched how these events develop.

===================================
The people in the replies aren't buying this. LOL!

matt - deplore me if you must

I find it amazing that an entire family of Paki hackers was employed by Congress and then hacked 20+ Members. They were then indicted and somehow retained their passports. Talk about flight risk!

They then fled to no ones surprise and no one seems to be pursuing them.

The media have been amazingly silent. Crickets, even.

That there are factions in Pakistan who are aligned with China doesn’t seem to bother anyone either.

It would seem like there is a coverup once again. If I had any belief whatsoever in the competence of our intel agencies anymore I might tend to give them the benefit of doubt. But I don’t.

The most successful intelligence coup is the one you never knew happened. But since the agencies were politicized we have lost trust.

This is what happens when our institutions are destroyed from within.

I will note my mom’s building switched their generator from diesel to nat gas after the last storm. My brother added a nat gas generator. I hope FL nat gas supplies use gas for their pumps.

The nice thing about a nat gas genset is how quickly it converts to propane. I would keep the conversion kit handy and have a few bbq bottles or a 100# bottle just in case.

Jack is Back!

Buckeye,

Thanks. Unfortunately, I was so busy prepping for Dorian and Mrs. JiB's return tomorrow I had completely forgot about the game. I like Luke Fickle but I'd prefer more discipline on the D and less emphasis on the O. Offense will not win against [The] Ohio State University next week but a good D could at least make the score more mangeable.

Victory Bell game coming up. Miami hasn't owned since 2005.

henry

TK, that makes sense. Propane is a dirty fuel, so needs more filter / monitor action. (propane furnace here... experiential learning).

henry

TK, the downside of propane: capacity. The last storm, you could not get diesel, gasoline, or propane (as filling stations didn’t have generators). Nat gas supply was not interrupted. People react and switch.... is there enough pipe for that?

If I move to FL (I’ve resisted arm twisting so far), I may want solar / wind as well. At least that doesn’t have a supply problem after the storm (yeah... it only extends the other backups).

Jane

Henry, I'm of the mindset I won't need a hotel room. We can see if I'm a fool. What I really can't imagine is a house without AC. It's been 95 every night for a week.

The Infamous Ignatz

For anyone who remembers those three professors who hoaxed peer reviewed journals of "gender studies" with papers on canine rape culture and translating Mein Kampf into modern feminazi language this is what happened to one of them Portland State U Punishes Professor For Proving Gender Studies Is A Joke

henry

Jane, the lack of AC is why mom left town and my brother went to a hotel on the last one. My view, if you weren’t flooded or blown away last time, all looks good this time (for FL west coast). The nat gas generator hint might help next time.

Threadkiller

Propane is a higher BTU gas for the same volume. The kit controls that volume so the genset doesn't run improperly.

You would add a tap and a pair of shutoffs right at the genset. Shut off the natural gas, replace the regulator componets, turn on the propane.

You have a point about searching for propane with the masses. The whole thing would have to be set up early.

The Infamous Ignatz

Here’s What People Who Used To Be Transgender Are Telling The Supreme Court
A sobering excerpt;

The brief describes a number of possible outcomes if gender-confused people seek plastic surgery and opposite-sex hormones rather than receive help through therapy:

Seeking to align one’s mind with reality has always been the preferred method for treating dysphorias, such as anorexia, xenomelia (the feeling that one or more limbs do not belong), or transdisability (believing one has a physical disability that does not actually exist). No one would ever address an anorexic person’s needs by providing a low-calorie diet, diet pills and stomach stapling. Moreover, one of the most comprehensive scientific studies tracking individuals who underwent sex-reassignment surgery revealed that (1) the rate of psychiatric hospitalization was approximately three times higher for postoperative individuals than a control group; (2) mortality rates and rates of criminal conviction also increased; (3) suicide attempts were almost five times more likely than before surgery; and (4) the likelihood of suicide following surgery was 19 times higher than the control group, adjusted for prior psychiatric illness.


Brilliant point in bold.

Ig, “used to be transgender “? What does that mean? It’s not as if genitalia were LEGO pieces you can swap back & forth.

anonamom

Jane, agree w henry--a generator will give you great peace of mind, and if you can use existing gas lines--you are in high clover! They run around 8K for one that will run your A/C. Lots of my neighbors have been getting them, both at home and up here in great white north. (snow eight months a year, not skin color)
My neighbor's up here has given ME enormous peace of mind, as it means we have running water during outages. She lets us backfeed off her side yard faucet, so what more can you want in a power outage, besides being able to flush toilets? (Before, we were drawing water out of hte lake--26 steps down the bluff.) It stays light up here til ten most of the summer, I have a gas stove, flashlights, candles--it's like one step above camping. I can deal.

If it does get in the 90s and you have no AC, remember to keep hydrated and get enough salt, pull all your shades and draw your drapes during the day.

henry

Jane, if you do the generator thing... talk to your neighbors. (HOAs ftw). My brother coordinated installs with his entire street. Saved a couple grand each. (Plus his resale value goes up).

Buckeye

Jane

Why worry?

If the storm is powerful enough to knock out the power, likely to be a breeze:)

Old Lurker

TK "You have a point about searching for propane with the masses. The whole thing would have to be set up early."

Spent a good bit of "engineer noodling" time on that design for Nantucket. No Nat Gas so propane is the only option. Trick was to balance the generator size to maximize run time for critical loads in a major outage under the assumption I could not get the tank refilled during the outage. While I would have liked a large enough generator to handle the peak loads in the house, that size generator would burn through the fixed supply of propane too fast. So I settled on a buried 1000 gal tank and a 20kw generator because that would 1) heat the whole house and run the refrigerators and ice machines, or 2) cool the rooms I use and run the refrigerators and ice machines for a continuous period of 10 days. (longer if the outage happened right after the tanks had been filled, or if the outdoor temps did not require max heat or max coooling. And the internet of course...

As Jack said about storm shutters...now that I have the belts and suspenders, they are never needed.

We gave up our generator to ocean salt corrosion. So, if I get an outage I will live with it. Mother Nature taketh and giveth.
