Jane

are those pix of your niece
/. Very cool!

CCGirl

Gus, I read MissM’s post as W thinks 45 is the president.

Dave, I haven’t signed up yet. I figure now that I’ve worked a year plus without dying I’m good.

GUS

Yes CCGIRL.

MissMarple2

CCGirl, GUS,

CCGirl is right. However, Wictor quoted so many regulations and laws about who the military answers to, as well as aircraft flight paths and other details, I don't know what to think.

Jim Eagle

Jane,

Yes. Her designs also.

MissMarple2

This morning I was going to post a video of President Trump and Melania greeting guests at Mar-a-Lago. Someone attending the party had recorded it.

Unfortunately, by the time I had watched it and started to copy it, Twitter had removed it!

They both looked great, very happy. Melania was smiling and President Trump was jovial and chatting with everyone.

Jim Eagle

Dave,

How was your beef bougignone?

However, Wictor quoted so many regulations and laws about who the military answers to, as well as aircraft flight paths and other details, I don't know what to think.

I suggest thinking Wictor is deluded would be a good place to start.

JiB was slow cookin' the boeuf, yesterday, Jane.

The canal will be plugged until at least Monday. Waiting for moar tugs to show up and pull harder.

"I see on Twitter that President al Sisi of Egypt has ordered that the shipping containers be removed from the ship stuck in the Suez Canal."

How long will it take for the environmental impact statement of placing all those containers on the fragile ecostructure next to the canal?

@Samir_Madani
What I found interesting in the #EVERGIVEN AIS playback here is that the vessel had trouble staying in the middle of the lane. She then likely grazed (or nearly did) the shallower end of the west bank before making a hard right and lost control. Winds came from S & SW at the time

Without public schools, how will children know it’s wrong to carjack people?

Hamza Shaban @hshaban
Replying to @hshaban
"police experts are blaming [the carjackings] in part on the pandemic that has closed schools and youth programs, and made outreach and monitoring more difficult.

Delivery and ride-hail drivers have been particularly vulnerable, according to authorities"

Melinda- I read that the ship was travelling 17 knots in a 7 knot zone.

Melinda

13kts, per a story from Henry earlier this AM. And given some data from an FT article, paywalled naturally, the physics of yuge ships in shallow, narrow channels has been well studied in drag tanks. The Bank Effect is serious, and explains quite a bit, as well as drafting shifts while underway. Speeding would amplify the associated effects.

Fighting crosswind gusts would almost guarantee meeting "The Bank Effect".

Jim Eagle

The slow cooked Boeuf was excellent. Now I am thinking of Baking an olive-rosemary artisan bread next. Adventures in slow cooking:)

GUS

The two bLACK girls/women hijacked and used a TASER to KILL a MUSLIM IMMIGRANT, because of BIDEN and his JIM CROW LAWS. 13 and 15 year old NEGRO GIRLS are hijacking UBER cars in WASHINGTON D.C.. How did these "children" become such violent criminals, in possession of weapons??? WE ALL KNOW THE ANSWER.

Dave (in MA)

    Dave,

    How was your beef bougignone?


I dropped the Eagle thing, but apparently not in time to avoid being confused with Mr. Is Back.

GUS

Dave, I'm thinking of calling myself GUS WHITE SUPREMACIST. Ironically my NIECE/GOD DAUGHTER, is about to graduate from the AIR FORCE ACADEMY. She got in and is in the top 5% of her USAFA class, without AFFIRMATIVE ACTION. She is blonde.
My youngest Brother, he father, is a former USAF PILOT, currently a STATE DEPT Diplomatic Security federal agent, with YEARS of overseas and DOMESTIC experience. HE IS WHITE.
CLEARLY A SUPREMACIST. I deconstruct and ridicule the FULL COMMIE bull shit. To consider the UTTER BULL SHIT that is being used to DESTROY our COUNTRY ....is ....NOT.... an OPTION to me.

Jane

Soy Dave and Jib. Glad the beef was good. What kind of wine did you use?

Jane

Soy - means “sorry”

Davod

Melinda - Thanks for the info about speed. I wonder if the speed was an attempt to correct for the wind?

Davod

From Warzone. The “Birth” Of A Chinook Is The Weirdest Helicopter Display You Will Ever See
Australian air shows did things differently back in 1981, as evidenced by this bizarre video.

Fun video explains how they get Ever Given unstuck (or not).

https://youtu.be/5iyn2q6s1Sk

GUS

Isn't CHINOOK a NATIVE AMERICAN word. Why YES, YES it is. How can a WHITE SUPREMACIST OPPRESSOR, use such a term..(Chinook), without FULL COMMIE approval.

GUS

I am making it my purpose to RIDICULE any, and I mean ANY, FULL COMMIE attempt to change our culture, by non-virtue of the attempt to LICK some other cultures ass.
I am cancelling all NON APPROVED CULTURAL REFERENCES.

Dave (in MA)
    Soy - means “sorry”
Indeed.

CCGirl

Jack, I quit facebook. Any other way to see her designs?

Davod

Gus. You are quite right. I also wonder how the RAAF is allowed to use the dark coloring (Camouflage) on their aircraft. Clearly racist.

MissMarple2

GUS,

I am getting very tired of all of the newspaper ads on Sunday being oh so carefully ethnically balanced. Next week I am going to tote up percentages vs the general population.

GUS

Davod and Miss M. It's called PROPAGANDA. You know, JOSEPH GOEBBELS. You do not need to be convinced, you need to be mind trained to believe.
Our FULL COMMIE DEMOCRAT version is 100% about GAINING POWER. They are FILTHY, and they LIE as part of their JOB. Media commercial pro's, believe showing a WHITE CHICK with a non-threatening BLACK dude, makes you or me, more likely to buy a product.
SO....Me, and my 20 year old son, are by default RACIST WHITE SUPREMACISTS, yet a WHITE CHICK rutting with a black dude is NORMAL??? Why would this NORMAL black dude RUT, with a WHITE SUPREMACIST white chick??? This shit is EASY. It's about divide and conquer. The MEDIA has thrown in for the CASH.

sbwaters

I was following @catturd2. Suddenly I am not.

Who could have done that? Jack?

Pinandpuller

GUS

I’m familiar with Thornton Wilder from HS Drama and such, but I didn’t know he was from Madison. Just another dead White guy I suppose. I know I should probably read a book or a play or a short story but I’m watching Mr North. Directed by Danny Huston, which is funny, because when I heard Robert Mitchum offscreen I thought it was John Huston.

“Damnable place [Newport, RI]. No lady here has ever heard the beginning of a concert nor read the end of a book.”—Mr Danforth

GUS

Sbw. You are obviously a CONSPIRACY DUDE.

I think Qanon,is what it's called. It's real,and clearly you are part of it.
On the other hand.... AUNTY FAG, is just a theory.
It doesn't really exist.

GUS

The problem, at the end of the day, is that most anti-Fascists are communists.

most anti-Fascists are communists...

...trying to impose their brand of fascism.

GUS

Pin, they ARE NOT anti-fascists. NONE OF THEM.
It's like me calling myself a tea-totaling vegan.

Narciso

I call them blackbloc, because it doesnt feed their ego, they are like thehijacker in escape from ny

Dave (in MA)

sbwaters @8:44, Same here.

Narciso

What difference does it make

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.foxnews.com/politics/white-house-biden-gaffe-transcript-afghan-president.amp

GUS

Narciso, I too, do not call them what they SEEK to be called. THE ARE COMMUNISTS. FULL COMMIES.
There is NO/ZERO reason to engage them on THEIR TERMS. AND I WILL NOT. No reasons needed. They are COMMIE LYING SCUM. Who should debate such FILTH?

Pinandpuller

Is Theophilus North supposed to be the anti-Gatsby?

GUS

Pin my brother. Do not look kindly upon those who DO NOT BELIEVE, yet try to ridicule those of US, that do believe. Your reference to THEOPHILUS, is just one of THOUSANDS of "out takes", where NON-BELIEVERS try to ridicule Biblical or CHRIST BASED FACT. Ideological/retarded FULL COMMIE LEFTISTS, HATE those of us who BELIEVE. So sad for them.

Pinandpuller

So I guess the trial starts tomorrow for that drug overdose gone wrong.

Pinandpuller

GUS

Sounds like you’re saying that Thornton Wilder was mocking those who love God.

Davod

Speaking of diversity - here is a twist. South African joins the Royal Australian Air Force,

https://news.defence.gov.au/people/trade-ambitions-lead-one-kind-experience

GUS

True Pin. The FULL COMMIE spends most of it's collective time, CREATING reasons for their imbecilic clamp downs. If one doesn't work, they create another. WWJD. Not this HORSE SHIT.

Pin, you know me, and I am not a violence monger, but and however, the SHIT WILL HIT THE FAN. This stuff will not stand.

Davod

The answer to Antifa and their supporters is to laugh and ridicule them.

GUS

Say his name!!!! FENTANYL FENTANYL, 2O DOLLAR BILL, FAKE 2O DOLLAR BILL.
POT, FENTANYL PRINCE STYLE, METH, HUNTER GATHERER BIDEN STYLE, and THC. LETS LEGALIZE IT STYLE.
PIN, the Minneapolis Freak city council, are WOKE, and clearly retarded.

Davod

PS. But doing so may get you arrested as a terrorist.

Pinandpuller

If I wanted your opinion I’d pay you in 15 minute increments:

I’m a Texas attorney, I’ve literally read all the arguments and I get it. But you can shoot somebody in defense of your *person* only NOT your stuff & burglary is fairly desperate. Most violent break ins you’re gonna know the person.

https://twitter.com/doctorrobinhood/status/1376334166556561411?s=21

GUS

IF YOU ARE WHITE DAVOD. The Joseph Goebells machine has been revved up, to SMEAR anyone who suggests that our NATIONS SANCTITY is all and ONLY ABOUT, the guarantees of our CONSTITUTION.
I'm sorry, THE FULL COMMIES use our FREEDOMS and CONSTITUTION against us. They have ZERO absolutely ZERO MORALS. EXAMPLE PSAKI. or SUSAN RICE.
THEY LIE FOR THE PAYCHECK FAME OR POWER.

GUS

THE "opinion" that most "break ins" are by SOMEONE you may KNOW.....is so FUCKING IRRELEVANT to anything even remotely related to criminal law, makes me PUKE.
What happened to lawyers being EDUCATED vis a vis THE LAW, versus an opinion from the GET GO????

E.G. Should I only shoot the ANIMALS, that break into my home based on wether, I KNOW THEM??? How fucking retarded??? I have a wife a son, and ME.
If you break into my home. I WILL KILL YOU.

Large block trades tied to Archegos raise worries about trading this week

“The prime brokers made lots of noise in marketing these blocks,” O’Rourke said. “They knocked the stocks down aggressively in order to get the trades done.”

O’Rourke added that prime brokers typically go long the remnants of the position, and he expected most of the names involved in the block trades to be “gapping up significantly higher” in premarket trading.

That's not the way block trading normally works. You try not to move the market, This sounds like a forced sale. I wonder why and if any one else?

Mel,

You hear anything about this?

GUS

JIM, NJ, we are in the nether world. This shit has been going on for a long long time. (PELOSI).
The TRUMP WIN, scared the DEPENDS off of Pelosi et al. These corrupt bastards are filthy rich thru corrupt criminal deals. WHY COULDN'T these fucking losers just retire and swim in their piles of cash???
Because it's not about the cash, it's about POWER and CONTROL.

Once the Virus Epicenter, New York and New Jersey Rates Lead Nation Again
New York and New Jersey are back atop the list of U.S. states with the highest rates of infection

This doesn't make a lot of sense to me, unless the trace and test people are keeping the numbers up. Voluntary testing seems to have slacked off based on my incidental walks past the Rite-Aid that does drive-in testing.

A couple of days ago NJ hospitals were saying that hospitalizations have been on a plateau for about a month. They discharge X number of patients in the morning and get the same X checking in later that day.

Davod,

The NYC Health Commissioner has TV ads on daily warning about THE VARIANTS.

I haven't been paying attention to all the granular details like I did in the beginning.

Just guessing here. I think the overall testing numbers are down in NJ based on my anecdote. They could be doing better at trace and test with the virus ebbing. Since hospitalizations are stable if variants are more infectious boosting the numbers revealed by testing it's less virulent.

jim nj

https://nypost.com/2021/03/27/the-scare-crow-tactics-of-democrats-goodwin/

I don't think invoking Jim Crow is all that smart. You'd think the democrats wouldn't want people to wonder about the origins of Jim Crow.

I mean if republicans are implementing a new version of Jim Crow it's more like a parakeet than an eagle.

It is kind of interesting though how the media are all parrots now.

George Segal, grandpa on “The Goldbergs”, died at the age of 87 of complications from bypass surgery.

Biden, for instance, called the Georgia law “un-American” and said it would “deny people the right to vote.” He claimed, “It adds rigid restrictions on casting absentee ballots that will effectively deny the right to vote to countless voters.”

But as others have pointed out, voting laws in Delaware are stricter than the new law in Georgia, yet Biden never said peep about his home state.

Because there is no truth to the president’s odious claims about the Georgia law, we are left with two options. Either Biden has totally taken leave of his senses, or he has an ulterior motive.

US Strategic Command must be taking their mandated CRT training

Neo

GVA defines a “mass shooting” as four fatal or nonfatal injuries (excluding the shooter) which occur anywhere for any reason. This lumps in drive-byes, gang fights, and the occasional domestic incident with the Boulder and Atlanta shootings.

That’s a useful metric — if you want to make mass shootings seem far more prevalent than they actually are.

Mother Jones (of all places) actually has a far more useful metric, which is that to be counted the incident needs three or more fatalities (excluding the shooter) must happen in public and must be indiscriminate — meaning it excludes armed robberies, gang or domestic violence, etc.

According to a 2018 RAND study — using those metrics — in 2015, GVA claims there were 332 mass shootings in the us. Using the more restrictive — and more accurate — Mother Jones criteria there were … seven.

Mel--

Would you like to guess how many formalized 'privacy protection' schemes globally can only be met by using an MS server as the storage place?

Totally coincidental I'm sure. Sort of like the nSF changing the name of its funding grant program after 20 years from CNH--Coupled Natural and Human Systems, which was an aspirational vision to DISES--the Dynamics of Integrated Socio-Environmental Systems that is more factual of the now imposed reality.

Just the Common Core doing its real job. Now who funded so much of those learning tasks and the Achievemnt Standards Network globally? Any commonality?
