Biden is on his way to Little Haiti after visiting Little Havana (Florida). No one is showing his "crowds."

Texted info from a friend.


Add the first, all on pluto tv.


What’s wrong with police shows?



Jane, we have Fision/Hotwire here. We get Newsmax and OAN. Howie Carr's show is on the 4 o'clock hour, unless there are technical problems.

Re masks: I don't wear a mask outside. I have a few in my pocket in case I go into a business. I haven't been confronted by a Karen yet. Of course, I may be getting dirty looks, but I wouldn't notice because the dirty lookers are probably wearing masks.

In some ways, I am a natural social distancer. If you are giving a lecture in an auditorium and you ask everyone to come closer together, I'd be the one who stayed right where I was. I always try to get the end seat in a conference room or movie theater, and I always avoid kissy/huggy at parties (well, no comment on champagne room parties with Destiny and Tatiana).

Although I keep my distance outside, I never locked myself indoors. I bought my own set of weights, because I don't much feel like lifting weights with a mask (a few here might note that I don't mind three pieces in the weight room). I got to swim twice over the weekend, because my wife treated me to a hotel room for our anniversary. At the moment, I am looking for a YMCA with a pool that is unlikely to shut down (my former health club with a pool is in a hotel and only allows guests to use the pool).

In general, while I'm fine wearing a mask in a store, I am disheartened by the number of people who wear masks outdoors, especially the young-ins. Some people seem to have lost all perspective.

Thomas Collins

One advantage of wearing a mask in a store for me: I don't like masks, so my shopping trips are now more preplanned, so I take less time in the store and spend less money. No more wandering around picking up thisses and thats.


Admiral Forrestal and Epstein didn’t kill themselves.


’...because my wife treated me to a hotel room for our anniversary.’

In spite of that, Happy Anniversary!! ;)


There was a Dr. on Fox saying the death rate was extremely high, but we shouldn't forget the children with amputations caused by coronavirus??? I think he just wanted to get children in there because - children.

Jim Eagle

This is a sad story of the depression that can haunt a man.

Marcel was sick and tired of the world; of Covid 19, Brexit, Russian belligerence, global warming, racial tensions, and also being a stupid LIBERAL, Marcel drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favorite radio station and started the car. Four days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and saw him in the car.

She notified the emergency services and they broke in, pulling Marcel from the car. A little sip of water and, surprisingly, he was in perfect condition, but his Tesla had a dead battery.


LOL, Beasts. As Diane Keaton said to Woody Allen in "Annie Hall," "That's really a present for you, not me." She was referring to some slinky lingeree, but sending TC off to a hotel room works too. :)


Good one, JiB!


Trump has a moderate case of Covid that has been treated as if it were severe.

The arguement can be made that a moderate case in the 74 year old leader of the free world is by definition severe.



I’ve seen them all twice!



In addition to what Narciso listed:

The Epoch Times
Dan Bongino show (podcast every day at noon on You Tube)

I will try to think of some more and post them.


I hear on the radio that our county (Indianapolis) is giving the following directives for Halloween:

No hayrides
No haunted houses
No parties of over 50 people
Social distancing for trick or treating (yeah sure)
Police patrols from 6PM-8PM

I think I will make plastic sandwich bags full of candy that we like, so if we don't have very many kids I can just put it in a bowl.


@ Jimmy 4:05

Have you seen the caliber of the latest Jeopardy contestants? A couple of weeks ago (the category was something like, "Things That Fail") a double jeopardy contestant was asked this question (paraphrase): He was forced to give up his 1987 nomination when it was revealed he had smoked marijuana.

The contestant's answer? "The Pope."


The California Mafia and Who "Oversees" the Internet

Worth a look.

Trump probably got more hours of sleep per 24 hours since Friday than he has in 20 years.

Yeah, he's probably thinking - six hours a night, wow that feels good and that's what other people do, too bad I don't have the time for it.



Gosh, maybe I should see if I can be a contestant!

Buford Gooch

Thanks for the info, anonamom.


"Trump has a moderate case of Covid that has been treated as if it were severe."

I agree. However, I believe one of the problems has always been that the treatment was to gradually increase efforts as the virus progressed, instead of swamping the body with stuff early on.


From a Breitbart writer:

John Hayward
The Wuhan coronavirus carries a heavy ideological payload of conformity and submission to authority. The Chinese are aggressively using it to promote their model of fascism. Others of an authoritarian bent are making political use of it as well.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Finally, looks like we might have some rain coming this weekend.
Won't put any fires out but it will greatly limit their ability to spread and will cut the smoke way down...if it comes.

JM Hanes

Wow, thanks everybody for the the links! I'll go through all of them this evening and will surely find something to help me accomplish my mission/impossible. You guys are The Best! I really appreciate the help.


I hope a 'Get well Melania' parade is planned.


Maureen Dowd

When Trump walked through the doors, Walter Reed had a stellar reputation. As he walks out 72 hours later, its reputation is in tatters. There's nothing Trump can't ruin.
3:38 PM · Oct 5, 2020
If only they had killed him. Alas, since he recovered, their reputation is shot.



I don't see how his rate of progress suggests a "moderate" case, I would say mild, but IANAD.


Dan Bongino
Just to be clear folks, I remain in contact with hundreds of my former colleagues in the Secret Service and this is BULLSHIT. This “commentary” is from one agent (we all pretty much know who it is) who serves as a quote factory for negativity when they need to advance a narrative



NB: The Jeopardy category was : "Guys Named Doug." Which makes the answer even more appalling. Not as appalling, I guess, if the category had been, "Ginsburgs."


Trump broke Jen Rubin


Dave (in MA)

Good one, JiB. You got me.


Maureen Dowd is catching up to Jen Rubin in the cat tossing Olympics.


"Just to be clear folks, I remain in contact with hundreds of my former colleagues in the Secret Service and this is BULLSHIT."

But, but, Juan Williams on The Five said he had several SS agents contacted him with their concerns.


I don't see how his rate of progress suggests a "moderate" case, I would say mild, but IANAD.

He had at least two episodes where his room air O2 sats fell to low 90s (maybe high 80s, if I am interpreting Dr. C's evasiveness correctly.)

The first one is what got him to Walter Reed.

And I have no disagreement with the aggressiveness of his treatment.

He's a busy guy; not got the time to see if all those fancy breathing positions that JK Rowling shared with us were going to get him better.

Yikes, Tonto? You mean the Pope wasn’t named Doug?

Mrs K keeps telling me I should try out, but with my luck I’d get some pop culture category that I’d be clueless about. Plus I don’t think I’m as quick as I was 10 or 20 years ago, even if I know more.



Te clue to their objection is "joy", which immediately triggered them.

Anything associated with joy, happiness, fun, etc. is objectionable.

I despise them.

Jack Lillywhite

I hope the WaPo medical plan has a robust mental illness unit.


MJW - I'd like to believe that, but I don't. Very sick people can wear suits. I'm not saying Trump was very sick, and certainly hope he wasn't, but the fact that he could put on a suit and deliver a short message doesn't prove much.

Well, MJW - I guess it depends on your definition of "severe case!" When I had what I now believe was COVID last Jan. I could not even get dressed to go to the doctor.

He was talking normally, not gasping for air,or coughing. Furthermore, I do not believe his doctors would have allowed him to do all of that if he were seriously ill. It takes a bit of energy to shave, dress, and prepare to speak on camera. He appeared normal minus his tie.

You are welcome to believe whatever you want. The fact that he's been released today seems to add weight to my statement.


This offset my weekend in the Twitter gutter.

I think that’s the key - being quick with the buzzer, and also quick to decipher what they’re actually asking for with some of the cutesy worded clues.

All the contestants will probably know 90% of the answers so it’s all down to buzzer timing.

I have to admit Douglas Ginsburg had completely dropped off my radar and I would have had to say "What is no, Alex?"


Mine, too, Iggy. Nina Totenberg busted him.

.@JoeBiden Says there’s over 120 million dead from Covid. That’s 1/3 of the US population! When is Jill Biden going to stop this charade. She should be ashamed.

James D.

Ig, I knew it was a Supreme Court nominee and that Kennedy ended up with the seat, but I forgot Ginsburg’s name.

KK's video of the incestuous Pelosi, Brown, Newsom and Getty family relationships is a revolting reminder of the ugly underbelly of the American dream of scum working its way to the top.

That was ION. There's also ION Plus with even more cop shows, often Canadian. Murdoch marathon on weekends. Positively entertaining, except for the repetitive ads.

Cheers, and RSBN said he waved at them!


It's not so much that the contestant didn't know/consider Ginsburg. But the "withdrawn for smoking marijuana" clue made the Pope an unlikely candidate.

Well, maybe not!!

And, in fairness, the clue may have been worded: "His candidacy went up in smoke." Didn't say black smoke!

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Ah, me gubmint.
I'm at that repulsive age where it's time to apply for SS.
So I figure online has to be best right?
Before I even get started it tells me I have to set up an account. No problemo.
I fill out the basic info hit 'send' and it tells me three times it can't set up an account for that SSN.
So now I get to look forward to unending hours just trying to get through to some dope on the phone. The only thing worse would be going to the damn office in person, which I'm fully prepared to have the dope on the phone tell me to do.



I feel your pain. I spent much of the day trying to figure out how to manage and disclose financial conflicts of interest for NIH grants. Basically it is irrelevant for my company, but I have to do it anyway.


I thought we had a phone date today, DrJ.


Lyle! I forgot!! I was on the telephone with NIH. Are you still available?

I had a really easy time with SS. I don’t recall if I called them or they called me but it was fast and easy. (Of course it wasn’t 2020)


I find all the govt websites unbelievably clunky compared to those of top online retailers. They've spoiled us.


You should try the California DMV website. You fill out the form — basic information — the system won't accept it.

So, you try calling the number to speak to someone and wait, and wait...then a recording comes on to let you know no one is there ("available") to answer the phone.

So, you try email which refers you back to the basic information form that they wouldn't accept in the first place.

I paid the AT&T bill tonight by CHECK, put it in an envelope and put a stamp on it!

I have never seen a web site so complicated and time-consuming! Not only that, but when you try to talk to a person, you get someone with a foreign accent who sounds like they are in Mexico or Guatemala! This consumed about an hour and a half of my day with no progress!

I am also tired of my bank locking me out of my on-line account if I mis-type my password. No second chances! You get a message that your account has been locked because "too many attempts" to get on, and you have to go through an elaborate rigamarole to get a new password! Aaargh!


Neither Sniffer nor Molester ware wearing masks. The HORROR!!!!!
