First?

Jane

Hi DrJ,

Thanks for the invite!

DrJ

You are welcomed, Jane!

Old Lurker

Hi DrJ...how are you doing?

DrJ

Jane,

Since we are the only ones here so far, I thought I'd give you a beard update.

It continues to grow, and I'm starting to get used to it. MrsJ seems to like it. It does need some attention, and sadly my barber -- who has quite an impressive beard -- is still closed.

Since it is my first one, I need professional help!

Jack is Back!

Maguire, when I take Frederick back to Canterbury in New Milford, I would like to get together with you to discuss your Trump pessimism versus our national optimism he inspires. You seem to be missing the intangible enthusiasm he generates because he uses the words people want to hear. I believe sir, you are in a jungle of Biden signs on yards that have no idea why they are there.

And I am expert on CT. from my many miles driving your byways.

DrJ

OL,

I doing OK. Living in CA with the COVID-19 scre has been a challenge, though.

I have come to appreciate how many stores now allow you to order on line, show up at the curb, and load it into your vehicle. It is harder to comparison shop, so in some ways we spend more (on groceries, for example). But it sure is convenient.

We also have tried to get take-out from our favorite local restaurants, to help keep them in business.

How many in RI, MA or CT which are not far behind NYC and NJ?

Jane, You convinced me. I would prefer to live with snakes, lizards and insects rather than be ruled by them.

I am surprised our kind host is so optimistic about Biden and Duckworth. Even my very left in-laws are feeling discouraged with Biden and the progressives.

I will try to follow Clarice's advice, and rest up this month. It's all so stressful!

Past is Prologue

Iggy, You are right, I posed it as a hypothesis. We don't know what particles remained in the atmosphere over time, including Conn and RI, etc. The numbers, though, are so disproportionate in that eastern corridor, as you've pointed out.

TM,

Except for COVID, I think it’s gone very well!

It's LEGS UP. Duckworth is not ready for prime time, nor will she ever be. They'll sew up the KAREN SHREW and LESBIAN vote FO SHIZ.

Extraneus

TM thinks Biden would be in charge if he won...

Biden is a puppet. He has already called for defunding the police, and he doesn't appear to be playing with a full deck. He can't run as a centrist or he'd be eaten alive by his own party, and they aren't compromising with anyone. They're out for blood.

The only thing that will save the nation is for Trump to beat them so badly that they spend the next decade licking their wounds and pretending to still be Americans.

Buford Gooch

Bongino says an "inside source" says Biden is now deteriorating more rapidly, and it will be much more obvious over the next few months.

Past is Prologue

Iggy, While I’m here, my son and his wife were married in the St. George Hotel in Volcano about 11 years ago, our families and a few close friends attending. We stayed over in the cottages, and some in hotel itself. They and we all love that gold country and its amazing history, thanks for the link.

TM, this is a worse thing than even rove is going to be indicted and the duke Lacrosse team has to be guilty.OTOH Peggy will be happy to know she has retained at least one fan.

Buford,

I saw that too. And I trust bongino. Altho it's hard to imagine him getting much worse. His wife is truly an ass, as this is spousal abuse.

Rarely has anybody deserved the death penalty more than the Boston Bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev. The court agreed that this “was one of the worst domestic terrorist attacks since the 9/11 atrocities”. Yet the appellate court tossed out the death sentence. So many lives lost....

....and ruined. The Federal Government must again seek the Death Penalty in a do-over of that chapter of the original trial. Our Country cannot let the appellate decision stand. Also, it is ridiculous that this process is taking so long!

Related to the new push away from the bolides and to volcanos, but the comments are where things really kick loose. Makes my head hurt, but I still poke around to see if anyone has better ideas, or just want to rant.

rich

>>>Trump didn't fall from the sky - his insurgency succeeded because the Republican establishment delivered two belly-flop wars and a housing collapse while mocking the rubes on immigration.<<<

but isn't this a 'both sides' problem. the dems could sit on the side lines and shoot spit balls and then when obama descended from the sky he could manage defeat with delusional dumpster fires and talk. lots and lots of talk.

Old Lurker

Trump arrived because thirty years later, it was obvious to a brick that nobody in the GOP Uniparty had any desire whatsoever, and never did, to see Reagan's Morning in America or the Shining City on a Hill he imagined. Trump arrived just in time for one final long Hail Mary Pass to get back on that path.

rich

Posted by: Manuel Transmission | August 02, 2020 at 04:56 PM

not surprising ... they've been pretty skeptical about the idea and some have a weird hostile reaction to it (sort of like garlic and hillary?) ... i've looked at the site more as 'climate skeptic' (they'll concede large portions of the manmade climate argument and go off into these tiny areas that are ultimately pointless).

my guess is that the comet research group is within a year of presenting indisputable evidence of a series bombardment across modern day canada (4-7 sites) that will either have to be explained away or accepted.

**and to explain this to those not in the overnight jim_nj had flagged up the subject and man tran and i have been engaging it for a few days. the hypothesis is that at about 12.8k years ago a series of strikes hit the ice sheets across north america causing a catastrophic meltdown of the ice sheet. it would have been 6-7 million cubic miles of water flowing off north america and into the pacific and atlantic in a few weeks. i'd go even further east and say that the north sea and norther europe might have evidence of hits as well.

The housing collapse was brought about by liberal policies over the preceding decades. They just happened to cause maximum damage while a Republican was in the White House.

Extraneus

Anyway, Biden isn't going to be the candidate. He can't do it, and it's only the CCP flu that's given him cover or he'd have already been exposed as the Weekend at Bernie's candidate he is. Even if he manages to get the nomination, he'll have to be replaced. The real question is: who will they actually run? It'll be a knife fight between Cuomo, Newsome, Harris, Bernie, and several others. I've predicted it's Cuomo and I'm sticking to that.

Cuomo can talk a moderate game while the Dems all know he's a solid lefty, just like they knew Clinton's and Obama's moderate talk was b.s.

I'd bet TM would be ok with Cuomo's moderate schtick, and the rest of the NeverTrumpers would vote for Hitler over Trump, so it really doesn't matter to them who the Dems run. Good thing they're a minuscule slice of the electorate, probably smaller than the number of blacks who will cross over to vote for Trump.

That’s what has me worried the most with this golf course we live on and the jackass developer suddenly wanting the city to rezone it for ANY type of construction he prefers. He was talking a good game about just renovation to the course and some commercial construction along State Street but now he’s changed his plan. I wonder why...

Wow. Tiny world. I owned the land across the street and to the south of the St George.
My family still has its 123 acre 'ranch' on the north end of town. Unfortunately a demented troll lives there.
Magical property other than that. Bottom of a valley with a flat meadow of about 30 acres surrounded by pine and oak covered hills. Small creek through the middle with a couple of nice springs and ponds with an old barn and my great uncle's old house; wherein the troll.
Used to go up every Sunday as a kid while my great uncle was still alive. Huck Finn never had it so good.

If those minority job approval ratings, which I don't recall any other GOP pres having, translate to even a minor surge of votes the Dems will be in sad shape.

TM, if you're reading these comments, I have to ask, with all due respect:

Are you our of your freaking mind?

There are no moderates in the current Democratic Party, regardless of what they try to sell to the rest of the country. They have been throwing an extended, lunatic temper tantrum since November of 2016, and they openly despise the majority of the population of this country, including plenty of their own voters.

However much you may hate or look down on President Trump, at least he doesn't despise you, or think that you and your family are white supremacists who need to be put in your place, or want to reenact the seizure and looting of the Gromeko family home from Doctor Zhivago with your neighborhood as center stage - and the Democrats DO.

If you're OK with that, for both yourself, and for your family, I just don't know what else to say.

No FOID needed!

Jim,SunnyvaleCA,USA

Why the "hate speech" movement is important to watch.

https://www.heritage.org/civil-society/report/hate-speech-and-the-new-tyranny-over-the-mind
America is the only Western nation that does not criminalize “hate speech.” Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and most nations of Europe already do so. The United Nations relentlessly pressures the remaining holdouts to follow suit ... Meanwhile in America, Members of Congress issue their support for speech restrictions, and Big Tech’s digital oligarchs, enjoying a disproportionate power over society, continue to impose speech restrictions in exchange for access to their platforms. So are America’s colleges and universities more and more governed by an aggressive chorus of students, faculty, and administrators who demand and impose speech codes. ...
Leading restriction advocates want not only to banish “hate speech,” but also to criminalize it. ... Perhaps most surprising, legal precedents that would bring this revolution fully into existence in America are already embedded in two areas of our legal system: antidiscrimination and harassment laws, and Supreme Court rulings favoring sexual liberation that are based on a new view of “dignity.”
