Whining that there are more police shootings among black and Latinos than whites is like whining that more people lose their teeth at the dentist's office than the podiatrist's.

After Iraq and Afghanistan, when a future Colin Powell invokes the Pottery Barn rule (“If you break it, you gotta fix it”), we can say “Fuck that! Been there .... done that.”

Nuke them, GTFO, and then nuke them again if needed.

Here I am! Just finished a mystery in which a club at a British boys’ school got all of their members into the diplomatic corps after they graduated, and as diplomats they stole artifacts like golden idols and ivory statues and then sold them off to support the school.

I couldn’t help thinking of Kerry running an operation like that, except for his own profit.

henry

Kerry has been a traitor since he ran his own peace negotiations with North Vietnam. Nothing new or changed since.

MissMarple2

Henry,

Absolutely right. That is why he sprang to mind as I was watching. 😁

Narciso

Which mystery was that?

MissMarple2

Narciso,

Midsomer Murders series. Season 5, episode 3. British series made in the early 2000’s.

Narciso

Oh really

What could go wrong

Neo

On Monday, the Supreme Court heard arguments in the key First Amendment case Americans for Prosperity v. Rodriguez, which centers on the State of California’s requirement that nonprofit organizations disclose their donor information to the state. Back in 2015, then-Attorney General Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) demanded that two conservative nonprofits, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) and the Thomas More Law Center (TMLC), hand over their donor lists.
Many of the justices cited the key legal precedent NAACP v. Alabama (1958), in which the Supreme Court struck down Alabama’s order that the NAACP hand over a list of its members. Alabama issued this order during the era of segregation when the Ku Klux Klan held tremendous power in the state. The Court rightly upheld the NAACP’s organizational privacy.

Now what is the angle that carlos slims and bezos settles on, zarif is the beleagered moderate trapped between the mad revolutionary guard and trump hardliners thats why they bury the lead

One recent commenters wesley morgan currently with the post seems to think most everything we did in afghanistan targeting salafi and relying on gitmo was wrong of course he gives general flynn almost no credit for designing the counter insurgency strategy

Catching up.

GentleJim: “ Anyone else experiencing new headaches after getting their vax (Pfizer for me)? Probably coincidence, but I’m on my 6th fantastic head buster in the last 3 weeks.”

I have had no symptoms whatsoever, and I am on day nine or so. May I suggest copious amounts of high quality bourbon? Sure works for me!

Sorry you are not feeling well.

Davod

MM2. Who'd have thunk it was a documentary, not a crime fiction show.

Narciso


Probably too close to the truth

https://midsomermurders.fandom.com/wiki/Murder_on_St._Malley%27s_Day

MissMarple2

Davod,

Don’t know the denouement yet, but THIS one has a women’s reading group playing the stock market even though one husband is a stockbroker who could be accused of insider trading, a handyman who lost his broker’s license due to embezzlement, stolen silver (although some had been replaced with plate) and a blown up restored Jaguar!!!

It’s sort of spooky , if this series wasn’t pre-Obama years, I would swear they had channeled JOM!

Thanks Narc, I love Midsomner Murders. My cable company only offers the most recent years.

Listening to Howie Carr on the way home I heard about the loss of Congressional seats for some states. He said NY missed keeping its rep by some 85 people. Ha! He said Cuomo must be regretting his nursing home policy.

No change is Mass. My impression (just an impression) is if people left Boston they didn’t move far. They stayed in Mass.

The counter argument that i bought for a time proffered by the likes of steven coll was that the taliban grew because of the chaos after the soviet retreat but im increasingly less convinced there.

Man it was a long day in retail today. I called myself a “misanthropic retailer.”
Too early in the season to feel that way. I am continually astounded to hear my customers announce their opinions about politics and the future as they seem so oblivious to reality. I sometimes wonder if I am the crazy one!

On a separate pet note:
Son took our dog up the street today. A dog-walker walking two neighbors’ dogs lost control (they were too strong for her), and one latched onto my smaller dog on his back. Son said he didn’t break the skin, but it was scary. The owner of the dog texted me at work. Her dog is so nice, so it was strange to hear. Anyway my beast is fine, but he fell asleep on my lap, and if I stroked the part of his back that was bitten he would shudder. He’s fine, but there’s always something going on with him. Never a dull moment!

Narciso

They are trapped in the cave or the matrix and act accordingly.

Narciso

So sorry to hear that.

CCGirl

He’s fine, but it was quite the event. I wouldn’t have known from my son. He handled it well. It was the neighbors who reached out.

I am attempting to hook up my tv and my ipad so we can watch Justified on the big tv. So I am out for now. Wish me luck.

MissMarple2

Narciso,

I don’t know how anyone is going to be able to compile any sort of history of the last 50 years except from trial records and personal correspondence. Major news outlets have been twisting the truth for a very long time.

Thats classic dr who before 1989, yes the effects were slapdash but the protagonists were mostly sympathetic. The ones after 2005 had some twitch or another.

Michael Every of Rabobank with his weekly dose of economic sanity in a sea of personality disorders and psychopathy.

Stephanie Nene Not Your Normal Granma

Appalled, Michael is a conservative on FB that I found through the group not the best of the web today. He's now involved in CO politics for the GOP as a county or district chair, and I believe he also has a show or podcast, too.

If you are on FB, I highly recommend him. He'll have your ass straightened out in no time. He makes too much sense.

CCGirl,

I don’t have bourbon, but I do have options that are very similar. I’ll give it a try.

Narciso

Hope you feel better gentlejim.

CCGirl

Gentlejim, I had trouble with migraines for a bit. If that’s the problem. The OTC drugs help immensely. Excedrin Migraine, and the various generics. If it’s a migraine they work in twenty minutes or so. If it’s really bad take the pills with a caffeinated cola drink!

Now I just take one, and not very often. The migraines have subsided with age, or the kids being out of high school. 🙄

I don’t understand all of these companies paying gads of cash to woke jerks. Who are they attracting? I think it’s corporations paying for free subscriptions as a benefit for their employees. Sure a few individuals are buying in. My girls already have a Spotify acct, so who is the target?

Bah, I never have anything right in terms of predictions, so why I am thinking I know better than the powers that be at this point is silly.

But I still don’t get it. ☹️

Corporations are now run by get rich quick money grubbing woke FULL COMMIES.
It's not like it used to be. No one from the mail room is now working his way up to VP of Sales and Marketing, like my Grandfather did. The slick connected millenials do not give a SHIT about the corporation, they care about the metrics and stock prices that get THEM paid. The stock market is completely manipulated and there will be a CRASH.
The perfect storm has been brewed. Denial is not a river in Egypt. Ask OL, if he ever thought his hard work would be taken by the GOVERNMENT and including the BUREAU known as the CDC. No authority to create law, but creating regulations that JOHN ROBERTS would OK as LAW.

Narciso

Spotify gave rogan a 100 million (raise pinky) half his audience dropped out.

CCGirl

Yup, no one is promoted from the lower ranks. One of our best friends works for Reebok. He started in shipping as a truck dispatcher. He now designs all sorts of sports shoes. My daughter’s boyfriend was looking for a job in a sports-related field. Our friend nicely informed him that his company is not hiring any young white men.

So much for meretocracy. As Steph says, use your govt stim paycheck to buy now, as everything will be few and far between going forward.

I feel like yelling like Marisa Tomei in whatever that funny movies was, “What a fuckin’ nightmare!”

You want to tell the largest cohort in the country, they need not apply thats not a recipe for social peace.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--I don’t understand all of these companies paying gads of cash to woke jerks. Who are they attracting?--

It's protection money.
1. They're NOT attracting guys with Molotov cocktails or cancel culture social mobs and,
2. They're convincing themselves the guys with the cocktails are heroes and they're now on the same team, so they can justify their craven cowardice.

Well, we had the perfect arrival of the Pink Super Moon. In spite of the ‘pink’ not supposed to apply to its color, it really did come up pink. Sky was clear and the water was fairly calm, so it left a very bright trail to the house. I’ll see if it is worth posting in the morning.

Ig, the Mayor of Portland found out. Ted Wheeler of logging inheritance fame, pet the croc, and pet the croc, then they came to his TONY APARTMENT in Portland to say "howdy". He ran away. Now he doesn't like them. ANTIFA. Not a group, a concept, RIGHT??? I mean no membership cards or W2'S. There a some very very evil people, that crave power in politics.
If you don't think Seth Rich was a "hit", you should think again.

I've been thinking of transitioning for a while...

No, not THAT!

I mentioned that I bought a used laptop and desktop PC at a very nice price.

I tried several times to download Firefox to the newer laptop and failed. Not enough bandwidth for a long enough time. So I was using the newer laptop as a back-up to the newer desktop.

I can do genealogy data entry on the desktop, create a back-up file when I'm done and then transfer it to the newer laptop.

So I've been doing that for a while now. At night I can use the newer laptop to figure out the things that I want to data entry on the desktop.

Data entry is kind of mindless. Lots of typing and clicking on things. Figuring out the connections at night is more intellectual and more fun.

So it's desktop during the day. And two laptops at night. One for genealogy and one for the internet and JOM.

With the library-borrowed hot-spot I was able to download Firefox to the newer laptop.

Instead of looking left for the internet and looking right for the genealogy I can use either for the web.

And the old laptop started having problems booting, "operating system not found." Pull the battery, pull the plug and eventually it booted. I knew it was dying I just had gotten used to working with two laptops.

Saturday I bought another used laptop (thank you stimulus funds), loaded Firefox on it, transferred all my files to it.

Three laptops is one too many for my needs so I junked the old one after deleting any identifying files.

The newer 8GB laptop is so much faster than the old 2GB laptop that it's like night and day.

It doesn't freeze-up with things happening in the background. Unfortunately, I haven't gotten a feel for the newer laptop yet. I keep inadvertently doing something that shrinks the internet widow to unreadable dimensions.

I'll adapt, but in the meantime it gives me some sympathy for other people dealing with transitional issues.
