Jane,

Small world, it was encouraging to read the Superintendent has started litigation against the teachers. Sheldon Berman, used to be our Superintendent. I always thought he was a loon, perhaps I was wrong about him.

Everything in this article is written to make the reassignment seem irregular and sinister.

I am not buying it, particularly since it's ABC.

The link doesnt work

The corporate media has left many questions unanswered about recent news that Canadian Foreign Minister, Chrystia Freeland’s grandfather was editor of the Krakivski Visti, referred to as a Nazi “collaborationist newspaper” by the Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust.

The most important question is how Freeland’s Grandfather Mykhailo Khomiak, gained admission to the United States and Canada after the war? The second, is why he was never prosecuted like many other Nazi collaborators for his crimes?

According to David Matas, senior legal counsel for B’nai Brith, “Chomiak died in 1984. He has been dead for more than 30 years. The Deschenes and Government files on him, if there are any, should be made public”.

A second set of questions are raised by her association to this figure, with whose Ukrainian nationalist dreams she openly identifies, “That dream persisted into the next generation, and in some cases [namely hers] the generation after that”.

Anthony Crawford spent years playing guitar in Neil Young’s band. He’s toured with Steve Winwood and Dwight Yoakam. His songs have been cut by Kenny Rogers, Lorrie Morgan, and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, among (many) others. Now, Crawford is making music to support Donald Trump.

To be clear, Rittenhouse was trying to get away from the crowd only after shooting a man 4 times. They chased him trying to take his gun. He’s been charged with murder. And the president is defending him twitter.com/costareports/s…

If the Democrats had a real candidate they could have had a really great day today. If Biden had presence of mind, the ability to think straight, he might have seen that today could be his Sister Souljah moment. He could have called out rioters all across the country and demanded that they stop immediately, listing and decrying each BLM atrocity. It would have been a winner, but he pretty much did the opposite. What a dope.

Dems say this is due to capitalism run amok.

Skyrocketing demolition costs for riot-damaged Minneapolis, St. Paul properties delay rebuilding

One day after rioters destroyed the Sports Dome retail complex in St. Paul, a construction crew hired by the city knocked the building down because it was dangerously unstable.

Then the city presented the property owners with a $140,000 bill for what it would cost to haul away the debris.

“We were really upset about that,” said property owner Jay Kim, whose insurance policy covers a maximum of $25,000 in demolition costs. “We thought that was high. But we didn’t know how much demolition would cost at the time.”

Like dozens of other investors whose properties were severely damaged in the May riots, the Kim family was stunned to discover that the money it would collect from its insurance company for demolition won’t come close to the actual costs of doing the job. Most policies limit reimbursement to $25,000 to $50,000, but contractors have been submitting bids of $200,000 to $300,000. In many cases, the price of the work is not much lower than the actual value of the property, records show.

“I think that is price-gouging and they should contact the attorney general,” said Andrea Jenkins, vice president of the Minneapolis City Council. “That is a symbol of capitalism run amok.”

Contractors acknowledge that prices for riot-related work are far higher than usual, but they said that is because government regulations require them to treat all debris from a burned-out building as hazardous. Industry veteran Don Rachel said those rules can double demolition costs.

Should be OL, of course ...

Jim,Sunnyvale,CA,USA,

I posted that this morning, and it infuriated me, because it was a perfect example of how the leftists just make up pie-in-the-sky rules and then when it doesn't work out, blame it on evil capitalism.

It never occurs to them that their rules are the REASON for why costs went up!!!

Jim,

I’ve been paying attention to politics since 1972. I have never ever seen lies like the democrats and their media push on a daily basis - and get away with.

DrJ

AB,

I wanted to respond to your comment about wine volumes. You are right that larger volumes are easier as far as taste goes. But there are limits.

400 gallons requires a major investment in all aspects of winemaking, much of which simply is getting "stuff" from one place to the next. That is too much for me at the moment.

Certainly we can buy decent grapes locally. But you were right: we are wedded to our vineyard, as small as it may be. Once I get that to produce good wine, then I'll try some of the other local ones.

It sure is fun!

MissMarple2

I got to the part which read "when she was young and presenting as male..." and knew I was dealing with someone not quite all there.

TN, I got 3 big jugs of Clorox the other day delivered from Costco. I'd gladly give you one.

DrJ

Jane,

Our figs are not quite there yet.

We did have a lovely but small garden-grown Ambrosia melon tonight. It was about the size of a "B" cup, though spherical.

It tasted great. Tomatoes are a prime reason to have a garden, but melons are right up there too.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

This guy Chaco linked seems to give a pretty good explanation of the CDC thing on 9,000 Covid deaths and death certificates.

With trepidation I'll poke my toe back in the confirmation bias waters.
Guarding against it is important because of stories like this. If you pounce on something as evidence for what you advocate without checking it out because you want it to be true you set your argument and credibility back when it later turns out to be wrong and/or silly.

Yeah, Clorox is plentiful here in the rural sanity zone. Zinc is scarce.

The arrogant and ignorant [funny how often those two go together] shitbird TM was responding to wrote this;

"Oh, don't worry... we don't have covid. We are taking... what is it called honey?"
"hydroxychloroquine"
I didn't ask why they chose that particular cleaning agent

How droll. Now do why you're such a dumbass or liar that even though you know people with a viral load too small to cause symptoms do not transmit the disease that you care what a bunch of asymptomatic people are doing in the middle of nowhere.

I am filling out my pick-up order tonight and cannot find it in Chlorox brand, Kroger's store brand, generic, you-name it!

One of my friends tells me she cannot find it in toilet bowl cleaner, either.

Good grief. I am going to have to go out and go through all of the stuff I brought from the garage stockpile when we moved.

If you pounce on something as evidence for what you advocate without checking it out because you want it to be true you set your argument and credibility back when it later turns out to be wrong and/or silly.

Can't argue with that, but asserting that someone is doing what follows your "if" without verifying that is what they are doing is its own sort of confirmation bias.

It will be interesting to see how cumulative excess deaths by, say, the end of the year or by April 2021 look. The 62-year-old guy in that linked piece is atypical, since the median age of those whose deaths were attributed to COVID was more like 75 or 80, with co-morbidities. I don't dispute that COVID contributed to or hastened the deaths of 100,000+. The real question is how many would have likely been dead within 6 months or a year. Not to dismiss those deaths as meaningless, but to weigh that against all the damage done to the rest of us.

Narciso, Bronson Pinchot is a classmate of mine, also in Morse College. In the TV room, [yes, one TV per college in the 70s] The after midnight crowd had two choices: classic movies or Three Stooges. Sadly for Bronson, Stooges won unless the classic movie was Godzilla or Bogart. He rolled with it. Very focused artist, good man.

--but asserting that someone is doing what follows your "if" without verifying that is what they are doing is its own sort of confirmation bias--

The people I'm asserting it about did. The rightish blogosphere was full of declarations that aha! only 9000 people really died of Wuflu when that is not what the CDC said. My first thought was if we use the same criteria then probably about a hundred people die of the flu every year.
Giving ammunition to your enemy especially when it costs them nothing is seldom a good strategy.


--The real question is how many would have likely been dead within 6 months or a year.--

That is A real question and an important one but one almost wholly unrelated to the phenomenon I was describing.
