I am absenting myself for a bit to do some more cleaning and tossing. Thanks to kiwinews for suggestions on other causes to donate to at the end of the last thread.

IF (God forbid) Biden is installed in Jan. and he is nuked and disoriented - how would anyone know the difference???

(Obviously, I broke my rule about scrolling past the headline but with a title like that...)

Dang, "Puraw" not "Purow".
Hmm, "Tito Puraw"

I wonder if it's a name or an anagram or ...

Can you imagine soldiers going into battle with a such a cry? Maybe.

Our son told me the auctions are great -- they come in and trash all of the junk and only bother with the good things.

My impression is that none of that is happening now due to covid hysteria. We'll either have to put everything remotely valuable in storage, or just pick out a few things and pay to have everything else hauled out and either donated or disposed of.

Momto2

OK, even more disoriented, either this guy of the next...

President Trump is NOT disoriented! Some lies cannot be allowed to stand. (sorry Jane if you find this insulting to TM)

...we need to be ready to move if knees become an issue.

anonamom, that is depressing - my wife has two fake hips and one fake knee, my knees aren't feeling so great themselves, and we plan on doing plenty of traveling. It's too cruel to imagine that infirmities that come with age could actually short-circuit plans, hmmpph.

Due to the depression talk on the previous thread, I am reminded of one of my favorite YouTube channels. Clara and Great Depression Cooking which I probably have shared here before. She was in her 90's when her grandson started filming her cooking things that her family ate during the depression. She sprinkles her demonstrations with stories of what her life was like.

Her sweet spirit and make-do attitude are somehow soothing and encouraging to me.

henry "...The real danger of the GOP's phony anti-fraud campaign is that it could lead to tough new voting restrictions in the states that could disproportionately affect voters of color..."

Snark aside, what if our Black fellow citizens could get honest gov't. Decent schools. Thriving economies with plentiful jobs.
Instead of perpetual Dem rule.

What if reformers like Kim Klacik (sp?) had a real chance? I assume that people like her are cheated systematically at every level of the precincts they run in.

clarice

Yes, Jim, that counterfactual claim of racism should be batted back hard.

MissMarple2

Reminded of something I thought of when I put on some hymns to listen to while I cleaned.

President Trump grew up Presbyterian and for several years his family attended Marble Collegiate in NYC, whose pastor was Norman Vincent Peale, the author of "The Power of Positive Thinking."


The album I am listening to is "Hymns Triumphant" by the London Philharmonic and Choir.

One of these days, I'll pack up his junk and just mail it to him.

That's what my wife did with the kids crap and it cost way too damn much imo. Frankly I didn't think it took up that much room and I was willing to let them deal with it after we croak. Lacking that I really like OL's solution.

jimmyk: Oklahoma, sadly is always among the bottom ten states in every metric, but we are still doing estate auctions (you have to wear a mask, also social distance to get in the front door.) I'm sure experts would say it's because we're stupid and for sure uneducated and unwashed, ignorant, too. :)

I notice on this list that Washington in number one state, and we are 43rd in total state rank, however, Washington is 15th in crime and we are 41st (must be all those guns) :).

It's an interesting list. Texas has a 38th, 33rd in crime. :) The low ranking, especially in education for Texas is surprising. It's a great state to live in -- we lived there and my sister lived there over 20 years. I love Texas and would move back there in a minute. (I think healthcare dooms both states I love, along with NC and SC, where we lived.)

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

Here is a scenario I never have seen properly presented to a prog;
They claim requiring an ID to vote is discriminatory and racist and they therefore oppose it.
The SCOTUS has held that keeping and bearing a firearm is a fundamental constitutional right.
One must not only present a photo ID but also pass a background check to buy a gun.
Why don't they oppose requiring photo ID for firearms purchases because it discriminates and is racist?
Why don't they oppose NICS checks as discriminatory due to the much higher rate of black incarceration?
If the reason is gun related crime is dangerous, isn't the lack of integrity of our electoral process dangerous? They thought so in 2016.

>>How good is the media at covering up things they don't want people to know?

As we speak the Trump team is doing a forensic audit of 22 Dominion voting machines in Michigan based on an order from a Michigan judge last Friday. He would not have given the order unless he thought there was some evidence of wrong doing.

How many people know this?

"Why don't they oppose requiring photo ID for firearms purchases because it discriminates and is racist?"

I have heard the original incentive for "gun control" was to keep "Saturday night specials" out of the hands of black folk.

Wow. Just woke up in our own bed for the first time in #twoweeks. About 6K miles and 22 hrs on the tach. Less than ten minutes of cumulative mask time. One restaurant meal, which was not worth the effort.

Our return home from the Front Range yesterday was spectacular. 300 mi. visibility, tailwinds (never before going NW), and great blues on the XM channel.

Trump flag still flying out front. All weapons fired at our usual Thx session in NC working well and ready for whatever comes next. 30 rounds in a 3” bull at 100yds on first try. Last time was with Caro and ED a year ago.

I’m friends with a guy who’s Dad was a small town dentist. When Dad died it fell upon the two sons to clean out the house. The Dad had a big library that the boys were loading into a pickup to take to the dump. A stack of books got dropped and money fell out of the books. Change of plans! They went through all the books and ended up with over $15K.

There should be a rule that anyone dumb enough to chase a dog buck nekkid through the house should be ineligible for the highest job in the land.

That breaks kosher, halal, Amish law, and the laws of man and nature.

I've been correct about MAGUIRE all along. I haven't shit on him, I've merely pointed out that he is not GRACIOUS to ME/US.
Jane is a wonderful lady. She is entitled to like praise and appreciate Tom Maguire.

Buckeye

Even I was a bit flabbergasted when Mrs. Buckeye showed me auction listings for old needlework pieces. The prices they command are shocking.

She has a fairly large collection of antiques, reproductions and over 3,000 patterns and/or kits.

This explains why when we move, the guys said it was the biggest batch of rubbermaid tubs they had ever seen.

She has been collecting for about 50 years, and most she acquired for peanuts. She keeps binders with documentation of the inventory.

The kids ears perked up when she told them that in today’s current market, easily north of quarter million.

GUS

Boris the violence started long ago.
The question is, when, do we fight back?

Peter,

We insult Biden all day long, and it’s TM’swebsite. You do what you want, I sure as hell am not in charge. The fact that I find insulting TM on his website, when he’s not involved in the conversation, is clearly my problem. I- just think it’s rude.

MissMarple2

Jack,

Here's some plain talk from a woman who worked in mining, engineering, and retail:

All of the crap that has been heaped on Donald Trump is nothing but utter fantastical BS made up by progs who have concocted this caricature of Trump from their dismal mythology.

A billionaire who still looks as good as he does in his mid-70's and who was a handsome guy when in his 30's would have had women throwing themselves at him, whether from the secretarial pool or from the Miss Universe pageant and everything in between. I will NOT accept the idea that he is some sort of sexual predator who harasses women. (And as I said a day or two ago, don't these women know how to say "Knock it off!" ?)

Joe Biden is a weasel who is NOT attractive, charming, or skilled in anything except crooked schemes using his drug-addicted son as a bag man.

You cannot convince me that most women look at those two and choose Biden, unless they have been brainwashed by the media and academia. No and no again!

What I need to do is compile a bunch of New York Post and other photos from the 80's and 90's showing all of the people who sucked up to Trump because of his money and charm, and that would include Bill and Hillary Clinton, Oprah, Jesse Jackson, and Mike Tyson.

I am fed up with the hypocrisy and villainy of the Democrats, the stupidity and naivete of people who believe what the media says (and that would include my long-time friend from high school, one sister, and my daughter) and who have swallowed this BS hook, line and sinker.

Buckeye

I just got back from my BILs house. He is the General Contractor who has been building custom houses for as long as Mrs. Buckeye has been collecting the needlework.

One of his long term clients is a wealthy retired Doc who has had Jim do numerous remodel jobs in their main residence and a couple of vacation homes.

He is getting ready to build them a new “cabin” on a lake about an hour south of here. They have an existing cabin on a big waterfront lot, but it was built almost a 100 years ago, and lacks a number of modern conveniences, like central heating.

Jim will start the new build in January. He just installed a furnace in the old place so he has a place to stay this winter:)

The initial estimate for the new place is 1.5 to 2.0 million. The Doc said fine, I’ll set up an account for you to draw on for whatever is needed.

Jim wanted to know at what milestones he wanted to do inspections. “We’re going to Florida until next summer, just us your judgment”.

Not many clients like that!

Jane

There is no way in hell Trump lost this election - that possibility should not even enter your mind. Anyone with 1/10th of a brain knows that. If you think Biden should be president you are either dumb as a rock or corrupt as hell. You choose.

Hello Lovely Miss M. You are absolutely spot on about BIDEN. I've followed his career, as long as I've been kickin'. I and nearly every ALPHA MALE HERE (and at JOM, most of the men are alpha), recognize what an INSECURE PUNK, Biden has always been. Anyone who criticizes TRUMPS hubris, merely hate that TRUMP walks the walk.
Biden made out of bounds comments about his first wife and their sex life. INSECURITY/Bragging.
He has lied about his FOOTBALL prowess and MADE UP DELAWARE football career. He has lied about his educational accomplishments in the open. He has lied about his ranking and NON-SCHOLARSHIP at SYRACUSE LAW. He talks like a tough guy, because he is PROTECTED. His "LYING DOG FACED PONY SOLDIER" comment indicates his bullying nature.
He had an affair with a married woman, who is now his wife. She was married to someone else.
BIDEN IS A PREDATOR.

After my maternal grandmother died, and their two children had decided what they wanted of estate furnishings, the grandchildren were each given one color of a set of dot stickers.

I have a friend, who married relatively late, then proceeded to have 8 kids in 8 years. He and his wife had a terrible break up, and she made claims to the court and got all the kids. He doesn't get to see them. He is a pediatric cardiologist by EDUCATION, and has been teaching kids at a Catholic school for years.

As I was driving today, I thought of him. I don't know the details of his marriage, but, his situation is awful, and the school is close to closing. I thought about HIM and prayed. I am not in his shoes, but I empathize and care.
LIBERALS DO NOT DO THAT. CHRIS WALLACE et al are examples. They do not consider the choices they make, and the harm they cause. BIDEN IS A NICE GUY TO THEM.

What's the take on this from Alito, today:

Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito asked officials in Pennsylvania to file briefs by Tuesday at 9 a.m. in response to a lawsuit filed by Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) in a bid to overturn the state’s election results.

Tuesday, notably, is the “safe harbor” deadline that requires controversies surrounding elections to be ended so states can choose their electors before the Dec. 14 meeting of the Electoral College. Alito initially called for response arguments by 4 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9, before it was changed.

--Saying “Happy Holidays” this time of year does not denigrate Christianity. It simply acknowledges and respects the great diversity of our nation and includes each and everyone of us who call ourselves proud Americans.--

That would be true if people were simply saying Happy Holidays as a way to acknowledge and respect, blah, blah, blah...

But there is societal pressure to say it because saying Merry Christmas is wrong and bad and not inclusive and blah, blah, blah...

Part of Howie Carr's shtick is to italicize a word or phrase by raising the pitch of his voice when saying it, so you could say "Happy Holidays" back to 'em, hrtshpdbox.

I am not in his shoes, but I empathize and care.

My gawdawful Democrat sister, who is a first class Branch Covidian shutdown Nazi is a perfect example of this. Knowledge worker, works from home for the last decade, never missed a paycheck.

Here where I live, it is a very depressed economy to start with, and most people are blue-collar have to go to work types. SO missing work has a real, no-shit downstream effect two or three layers deep. Sister's response when I point that out?
