Robin, eff 'em all

Rocco, you did warn us and I appreciate it as I didn't want to see that.

I don't know when I've ever been so upset by the situation in this country, it feels like the summer of 2016 all over again when the police were being targeted. Nerves are frayed and we're all short-tempered. I hope like hell the president can pull off the monumental task he has embarked on.

Jane

Did you guys watch the Antifa video? It's easy to take out and eye - but the goal is to kill!

Captain Hate

I'm easy to find, Rocco, if you want to settle this face to face. What next, link porn and say don't click on this?

Maybe I overreacted but I can't unsee that dog's face and it wasn't because I ran across the image at some random site. There are supposed to be some types of standards here but I guess they're secret and only available to the in crowd.

Old Lurker

I can't even stand those ASPCA commercials begging for $.63 per day so I was not about to click on Rocco's link.

You need the four digit code ralph.

Whom do I have to sleep with?

Full sun, MM? My experience with yews is that they get too big, though there are spreading ones. The seeds are poisonous.
Our humidity makes lilacs look like carp all summer.

Buckeye

Both Mrs. Buckeye and I have family that has been here since the Mayflower.

I have some that have been here a lot longer than that:)

I know that both our families had members that owned slaves.

No one gets to pick their parents.

It was a long time ago, and I am losing zero sleep over the issue.

There have been no new cases of the novel coronavirus among the hundreds who flouted social distancing guidelines and attended pool parties at Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks over Memorial Day weekend, a state health official said this week.

Perhaps, theses Italian doctors are right ..

On my phone news bulletin Fox News is reporting no new Corona-19 cases among the hundreds who attended that pool/beach party at Lake of the Ozarks, according to state health officials.

After I watch the Antifa Expose, and assuming it is devastating enough, I will call every local news station, TV and Radio, as well as the local, State, and Federal politicians repeatedly and demand they discuss this story. My group of friends have been real couch sitters during this fiasco until yesterday when I had a provable instance of one phone call of mine reversing a completely fraudulent local news story that was out there just to incite more violence.

I may start posting this every 10 comments that I make here:

Call everyone. Call them now. Get your friends to call everyone. “Just like the loonies from the left.”

I'm glad to see that
"Robin, Tiger Beat Pompom Girl Team Member"
is intervening. I hope Rocco and CH can make peace.
It is a bit jarring to see CH call Rocco a member of the "in club".

Captain Hate

The Chinese Head Cold was a hoax and all new evidence will confirm that. The question is what do we do with the public health experts who drove this gross overreaction.

Narciso

Release the murder hornets on then?

hrtshpdbox

In Apocalypse Now, Brando described the Viet Cong hacking off the arms of recently vaccinated little children - like a diamond bullet drilled through the forehead into the brain.

That one scene is Brando's last great one (much of the rest of the movie is meh imo).

Narciso

But general loan shooting the looter that was too much.

Narciso

Its a horrifying thing like the bodies of tucker and menchata who were slain in the black triangle of iraq a dozen years ago yer i stlll recall.

Captain Hate

I hope Rocco and CH can make peace.

I apologize to Rocco for overreacting but putting that out there was like putting the tree of knowledge in the garden of Eden. Someone will click on it. Ironically the picture wasn't that gross but just of a normal looking dog that was about to be tortured to death. I lost sleep over that. It wasn't Rocco's fault.

Threadkiller

I see that both peter and clarice have posted their victories. Great job!

Keep calling these people. Last night I brought a local news station to a complete standstill by calling in and suggesting that the news anchor broad say “peaceful” more often and more boisterously. “She is only mentioning ‘peaceful’ every 3 words, when I think she could easily go for every other word. Better yet, she and the other anchor should both say it at the same time if they really want to convince the people who just had the businesses destroyed.”

They came back from commercial break and she looked like she swallowed a lemon. The very next story was a pre-recorded peaceful fluff job that she could barely introduce. She didn’t say peaceful for the next 45min.

I AM THE MAJORITY

Today is just phase 1. More to come.

--The highest-strength fentanyl patch produces a 4 ng/ml blood level. Death from toxicity has been reported at levels as low as 3 ng/ml. Floyd tested at 11 ng/ml. A risk of fentanyl in any amount is respiratory depression.

No sign of traumatic asphyxiation nor injury to the neck.--

I won't say it's impossible for those cops to be convicted but it would be impossible for a jury using the proper "guilty beyond a reasonable doubt" standard.
As I said before this new info came to light, since he was complaining about being unable to breathe while he was standing and walking, we don't even know if he would have survived had he never been on the ground.
IMO with the ME report there is insufficient evidence to even charge them let alone try them.
I don't know if this is the most likely outcome but it would be the most just; the cops get reinstated after a hefty settlement from the state and city.

sbwaters

CH and Rocco, I'm glad Rocco informed us of that animal cruelty and glad that CH found it so outrageous. Love you both.

And I'd be glad if TM graciously created a new entry so we can put this behind us.

hrtshpdbox

TK, if I tried that with the local PA station they'd just up their "peaceful" usage to every-other-word. As it is, though, I'm still hurt that I was ignored when I sent the TV station's "tip line" a suggestion that the TV announcers spit on the floor every time they say the Governor's name.

Jane

Good for you TK - keep it up!

MissMarple2

Daughter has learned a lesson. She wanted a new mattress and put half down 3 weeks ago, and then last Friday went to pay the balance, which she did. Delivery was supposed to be today.

She had a receipt which showed a $53.00 balance. She was supposed to get free delivery for paying cash. That $53.00 was the delivery fee. However, the dim bulbs doing the scheduling didn't talk to the salespeople, so they figured she still owed that money (which she did not). SO they didn't schedule her for delivery and the trucks have already gone out.

They will deliver next Wednesday. I will wait a while before I point out to her that she should have called them IMMEDIATELY when she noticed that balance on her receipt.

TK's video at 10:32 is a good one.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Just a modest suggestion, but if we saved more of our irritation for the traitorous scumbags trying to destroy our country and less for those we mostly agree with here, even when they do or say something we don't like, the world and this place would both benefit.

MissMarple2

Captain Hate, Rocco,

People have been posting that picture (or a variation of it) on Twitter. I am really good at squinching my eyes and scrolling by real fast. LOL!

It has disappeared from my timeline today so I assume that Twitter is either shadow-banning it or forced the poster to delete it, because it doesn't go with the "rioters are martyrs" theme currently being pushed by the media.

President-Elect Jim,SunnyvaleCA

"Just a modest suggestion, but if we saved more of our irritation for the traitorous scumbags trying to destroy our country and less for those we mostly agree with here ..."

Only speaking for myself, but I think we have PLENTY of irritation to go around LOL

Thank you, CH. Very forthcoming.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

I'm shocked that when I look at the wikipedia graphs of daily new cases and daily deaths that the trend has stayed the same even though most of the country has been opening up for some time.
It's almost like the shutdown had no actual reason for being implemented in the first place.

Captain Hate

Or they're worried that someone who recognizes that thug and hates cruelty to animals will deliver some off the books retribution.

I apologize, Iggy. I tried to say it once, about how I personally freaked out a little. I overreacted, I'm sorry.

MissMarple2

TK,

That video at 10:32 IS very good. Thanks for linking it. Mr. Taylor is an eloquent speaker.

Now I am going to call and raise hell about those voting centers.

Had my bi-yearly doctor's appt. today. Interesting how it was all handled in the Time of CoVid19.

First, last week they sent me an app that asked me all the questions my doc usually asks before doing the physical. Took about 5 minutes to answer and fill out the online form. Then before I arrived at the clinic, I was sent, by text, a link to to click to tell them I am in the parking lot waiting to be summoned:)

Outside they had set up a pre-visit sanitation station with face masks for those that didn't have one. Every floor had little blue circles with shoe prints to show where to stand for social distancing. Then in the office they had every 3 chairs turned around so that all the empty chairs were more than 6 feet away from each other.

I wore my N95 mask (that I had got years ago to do some sanding and painting) all throughout the physical as did my physician (she is a Bahamian and damn efficient). Then I go a text asking for my copay which I made by replying to the text.

Let's say it was very clinical.

Every single phone numer at the county GOP headquarters has a full voice mail box and no way to leave a message. I cannot get into anyone's email, either.

I guess there are other people mad as hell.

Captain Hate

The comments over the last couple days of how inundated people get for donations after they make a single contribution is one of the dumbest things I've seen from a marketing standpoint. Pestering people who help them is a good way to offend everyone but shut ins.

Didn't we figure out that Mueller's team was all democrats like....oh....two years ago?

That THIS, and all the other erosion of freedoms and liberties and Constitutional assurances we used to have that our parents fought and died for is not being shouted from every Bully Pulpit in the land is why I think we frogs are approaching fully cooked.

Which was why I was a bit surprised at no one backing me up on my objection to the curfews. Mayor Bane refuses to put down the riots, refuses the offer of the National Guard, and instead takes away more of freedom of 8 million+ law-abiding citizens. I don't see how one can object to lockdowns and be fine with curfews. It's the same thing. Deblasio is choking the life out of the city.

I am to happy announce that Navy Veteran, Michael White, who has been detained by Iran for 683 days, is on a Swiss plane that just left Iranian Airspace. We expect him to be home with his family in America very soon....

....I will never stop working to secure the release of all Americans held hostage overseas! Thank you Switzerland for your great assistance.

It's almost like the shutdown had no actual reason for being implemented in the first place.

I'd like to think when the history of this is written, it will go down as one of the worst examples of mass hysteria in the history of human civilization. There may have been a week or two when there was enough uncertainty to warrant extreme measures (though I don't think the lockdowns were ever appropriate), but to persist not just now but through the end of the year, with cases already down to a trickle, hospitals empty, and the economy on the verge of collapse is just f***ing nuts.

The Metropolitan Opera just cancelled its fall schedule (which wasn't going to begin till the end of September). A bunch of universities are planning on remaining online or other taking other extreme "distancing" measures. Of course they are doing all this under the guidance of "health experts." I'd say it's surreal if it weren't mainly infuriating.

Given who will probably be writing the history, I doubt that very much, unfortunately.

It's like the whole country has lost its mind, jimmyk. Both political parties too.

Somehow, they all immediately got my dad's new address when he moved in with me. In 2014, he wrote ~$8k of $25-50 checks. Max count of begging letters was 18 in one day. Still get some most days nearly 5 years after I began editing the mail.

Rep. Zinke's PAC was the absolute worst. I'd cover it with obscenities and mail it back if postpaid. Several per week, sometimes 2 in one day.
