Mike Lindell was just on and he is NOT backing down. He has even MORE evidence than he put in his video "Absolute Proof."

Hi from balmy Abilene, Tx. Freeze stated breaking on Thursday with 70 on Saturday afternoon. Supposed to be in high 60s this pm. How it happened I do not know, but none of my frozen hose bibs had any damage. No cracks and no messed up washers causing any drips. Still on boil to drink mandate (I understand it is to be lifted tomorrow) but we had plenty of bottled water before the Big Freeze. I kept my countertop icemaker when I sold the RV in 2002 so we’ve been giving it a workout on bottled (had about 10 gal jugs for emergencies) water since elect was restored.

Sidwhite is not a prolific commenter and it is usually questions rather than opinion, but I will follow JOM and Check Lucianne daily, but it’s off to work, with surfing more centered on gardening and cooking websites.

#SCOTUS will not review challenge to Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s extension of mail-in ballot deadline.

This is really disappointing because in 2018 the Pennsylvania Supreme Court (5D-2R) stuck it's nose into Congressional redistricting, completely replacing the plan by the legislature with one of their own which gave at least 3 seats to the Democrats. The issue in Republican Party of Pennsylvania v. Degraffenreid (formerly Boockvar) would have ended this practice cold.

Justices Christine Donohue(D), Kevin Dougherty (D), and David Wecht (D) are up for a retention vote in 2025, while Debra Todd(D) and Sallie Updyke Mundy (R) are up for retention vote in 2027. Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor (R) must step down Dec 2021 and Justice Max Baer (D) must step down Dec 2022 when they reach 75 years old.
If the judge is not retained or steps down, the governor, subject to the approval of the State Senate, appoints a temporary replacement until a special election can be held. Governor Wolf (D) is in office till Jan 2023, when term limits preclude him from running again.

Young People of Color seem to be the new group to be hyped in policymaking. Seems offensive to me.

America's youngest workers, particularly young adults of color, are facing the most dire employment prospects since the Great Depression. As our nation looks toward recovery, and policymakers and investors seek strategies to build stronger connections to economic opportunity for young workers of color, we’d like to highlight the promise of work-based learning (WBL) opportunities:

WBL can help young adults of color get the experience, education, credentials, and relationships necessary to succeed in the workforce, now and in the future.
WBL can provide young adults of color an entry point into jobs in industries where they have been historically underrepresented. WBL can provide opportunities for young adults to demonstrate their value and abilities to employers and to change biases around hiring and career advancement.

In this research report, we describe how four organizations involved with the Annie E. Casey Foundation’s Generation Work initiative engage with young adults and employers to design and manage WBL opportunities.

Read “Unpacking the Work of Work-Based Learning” to learn about the behind-the-scenes programming and relationship-building work that practitioners engage in with employers. We describe how practitioners have tailored their programs to meet the needs of young adults of color and to support employers in their work to develop, structure, and support WBL opportunities.

Hi all! Finally getting back online after an interesting week in central Texas. We had no power from 2 am Monday morning until 3 pm Thursday afternoon. We did have running water, including hot water, from our gas water heater.

But it was very very cold in the house and eventually got down into the 30s indoors. Fortunately we had enough warm camping gear and flashlights/candles and food. Felt like we spent the entire time trying to be warm. Would have been much smarter to get outside and move around more often.

Anyway, pipes made it through okay (wrapped/dripping) and that was the greatest concern.

It's now in the 70s and absolutely beautiful, expect for the frozen vegetation which isn't so pretty.

I enjoyed being offline. Even when I heard that Rush died I was glad to not be near the internet. It was good to think of him and remember him without exposure to nonsense from the left.

Thanks to narciso and Extraneus for checking in!
Hope all is well with JOM.

More that partly answers OL question.

In the wake of COVID-19 and our nation’s reckoning with racial injustice and inequity,we find ourselves in this moment in our history that shouldn’t be wasted. WBL opportunities for young adults of color will be more important now than ever. The ongoing impact of systemic racism on education and employment is strikingly visible in the pandemic economy.Young adults of color remain among those most significantly impacted by the COVID-19 recession —with unemployment rates near 20%for women and up to 25%for men among 16-to-24-year-old Black, Latinx, and mixed-race workers.12Additionally, because a high concentration of young adults worked in the retail and hospitality industries before the pandemic, there is great uncertainty whether there will be jobs for them to return to.

We have an opportunity to redesign systems and structures in ways that are race-conscious, address inequities, and benefit everyone. Race-conscious investments in WBL opportunities will help ensure that the most diverse generation of workers in US history are equitably prepared for and connected to good job opportunities.

Race-consciousness as the basis for restructuring the economy and society. We're along way from Bakke.

I enjoyed being a resident of Fla all those years. Make sure you fully understand all the different types of insurance in Fla. I have a friend who sent me an email after she had made an offer on beachfront home getting ready to close asking me to explain to her about flood insurance.

Had to explain there is a cap on what flood will cover which is a problem in a storm surge and that with Fla wind coverage there is a % that must be funded out of pocket before insurance kicks in. It's not a gross dollar amount.

So there was this professional assassin that charged $10,000 per bullet.

A guy comes up to him in the bar one day and says, "Are you the guy who charges $10,000 a bullet?"

"Yup."

"What if you miss?"

He looks at the man, deadly serious. "I don't miss..."

"Okay, we'll I've got $20,000. I just found out my wife is having an affair with my best friend. They're at the motel together right now."

"Let's go," the assassin says.

So they drive to a store across the street from the motel and climb up on the roof. The assassin takes out his rifle and attaches the scope.

"They're in room 21. I want you to shoot her in the head, and I want you to blow his dick off."

The assassin looks through his scope. He keeps staring for several minutes, not taking the shot.

"Well? What are you waiting for!?" the husband asks.

"Hold on a minute. I think I can save you $10,000."

If I understand the TGA properly it's like a Strategic Petroleum Dollar Reserve that the Fed uses to flood the market with barrels of dollars as the WH does the oil market with barrels of oil.

Except that I believe the TGA is under the control of Treasury, so the decision can be based entirely on political expediency rather than any economic rationale. At this point, though, there's little difference, as the Fed just seems to be doing the bidding of the Treasury anyway.

If McTurtle actually was any kind of leader, and if the GOP had any dignity, or common sense, or balls, they would vote as a bloc against every single one of Biden's nominees, no matter who they are.

Make the Dems stay together and vote unanimously, and make Harris break every tie, and make the Dems 100% own every one of these criminal jackasses nominated by an illegitimate president.

Fine, we don't have the votes to stop them, at least our side doesn't have to voluntarily collaborate.

Back at ya, Steph:

A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife.

She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand…

Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk.

She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk.

He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching..

For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well.

Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, "You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great.

You should go into town and kick up your heels.” The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday night.

One o'clock came, however, and he didn't return.

Two o'clock and no hired hand.

Finally he returned around two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.

She quietly called him over to her.. "Unbutton my blouse and take it off," she said.

Trembling, he did as she directed. "Now take off my boots.”

He did as she asked, ever so slowly.. “Now take off my socks.”

He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots.

"Now take off my skirt.”

He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light.

"Now take off my bra..”

Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and dropped
it to the floor.



Then she looked at him and said, "If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you're fired.”

Thanks to see how we're doing here in the Dallas area. My hubby and I have been fine. Had a few days when they alternated having heat on and off . 2 of our sons and one of the girlfriends stayed with us as they had no heat or water. Our oldest son's son's family fared the worse as they had no heat at all for over a day. Thankfully our DIL's sister and husband were spending the weekend in Austin so son and family moved to their house where it was nice and warm. Our 3 grandkids loved playing in the snow and going a whole week without school.

Today was a glorious day, sunny nice and warm.
Today was the 1st day I walked land was able to catch up with Rush's podcasts. I'lve cried every day thinking about him being gone. Have listed to his podcasts from the day he started. That's going to take me longer to get over.

Glad you are all doing well. I'm going to try hard to keep in touch every day. This is a special group and I want to do a better job of keeping in touch. Blessings to you all.
