If he actually makes it through the Democratic “mostly-virtual” Convention to be held (sort of) in Milwaukee next week (but really on the Internet), Joe Biden’s acceptance speech will not be a live event. Instead, Mr. Biden’s head will be clamped in place, as in a Civil War era photograph, so that the audience won’t see his earpiece while an aide feeds him his lines — they wouldn’t dare rely on the candidate reading off a teleprompter. And you know what? It still won’t work. They’ll have to cut-and-paste the video so drastically it will look like an early edit of Ed Wood’s fifties’ classic Plan Nine from Outer Space.

One has a sense that a whole lot of scrambling is going on behind the scenes in DNC-ville this week leading up to the party’s dreaded coronation — and in other places, too, such as Bedminster, New Jersey… the fabled seventh floor of the FBI headquarters… across Pennsylvania Avenue at William Barr’s Department of Justice… and three blocks east in the hallowed chambers of the DC Circuit Court of Appeals.

Mr. Biden’s ominous stalling on his veep pick sends the signal to casual observers that this whole nomination pudding remains badly un-baked. Surely a few not-insane party higher-ups must know that Uncle Joe is not up to actually hitting the campaign trail. They don’t dare imagine what will happen as he is wheeled out to face those sparse crowds of “dog-faced pony soldiers” assembled in middle-school cafeterias across the land. Some kind of rolling debacle, fer sure: shouting matches, push-up contests, and moments of humiliating aphasic blankness. Is it back to basement, then? I guess so — but what about those debates Mr. Biden signed on for?

They’d never permit him to show up live. Instead, citing possible Covid-19 exposure, they’ll proffer a “virtual” Zoom hook-up, and once again Mr. Biden will be rigged with the trusty earpiece to be fed his lines. Or they’ll cook up some other excuse and just pull him out altogether. The foregoing assumes that Mr. Biden remains the Democratic Party’s candidate for president, which is assuming a lot. Meanwhile, I’d like to see some aerial drone footage of the parking circle at Hillary Clinton’s Chappaqua, New York, hideaway this week… the limos coming and going, the CNN mobile video vans parked on the grass with a tangle of cables running up to the house… the coup to end all coups….

And what of the mysterious action in Bedminster, New Jersey, Mr. Trump’s hideaway? He made the enigmatic remark last week at a campaign stop in Ohio: “I have a lot of rich enemies. You won’t see me for a while.” Rumors abound in the non-seditionist news media that something ugly is about to drop. Something, perhaps, that might bust open a suppurating fistula of Deep State corruption of which RussiaGate was one mere subsidiary side-pool of sepsis. Something that perhaps involves the evidence-trail of money-laundering that emanated out of Ukraine during Barack Obama’s second term — a whole fetid, reeking dumpster-load of evidence stealthily gathered under-the-radar by Rudy Giuliani lo these many months — of which the roles of Joe and Hunter Biden are already richly documented, but which may involve many other government poohbahs of both parties. And I say evidence because, as a skilled former federal prosecutor, Mr. Giuliani knows the difference between aspersions and proof. Was Mr. Trump intimating back in Ohio that it’s duck-and-cover time?

Attorney General Barr sat through a leisurely chat with Mark Levin on TV last night, a curious hour of understatement and elision, especially concerning the momentous matter of US Attorney John Durham’s way-overdue actions in the Russia Collusion hoax. Mr. Levin dropped the ball so many times in his questioning that it seemed deliberate — for instance failing to ask whether Mr. Barr had detected any prosecutorial misconduct in the pursuit of General Michael Flynn. There’s plenty of reason to suppose that Robert Mueller’s lawyers royally misbehaved in that case, colluding with FBI director Christopher Wray to withhold a ton of exculpatory evidence even to this day. There are plenty more reasons to suppose that the entire Mueller investigation was a knowing, seditious sham, and that several of his “team” members — e.g. Andrew Weissmann, Jeannie Rhee, Brandon Van Grack, Zainab Ahmad, Aaron Zebley, plus US Attorney Tanisha Guahar, and possibly Mr. Mueller himself — deserve to be indicted for their efforts to overthrow a president.  (And, of course, there’s a long list of other now well-known characters in the DOJ, FBI, CIA, and other festering places who played roles in Coup-O-Rama).

Speaking of General Flynn, his mandamus petition comes before an en banc session of the DC Court of Appeals on Tuesday. It’s hard to see how they can get around their earlier three-judge panel’s order under a mandamus petition for DC District Judge Emmet Sullivan to vacate the case, as now demanded by the federal prosecutors who brought it in the first place. We won’t rehearse the tedious legal arguments, except to say that where there is no prosecution, there is no case, and Judge Sullivan has no standing to act as prosecutor himself under the separation of powers in the constitution. But in these dark days of a weaponized judiciary, with its Lawfare henchmen grubbing away in the shadows, there’s no telling what bad faith gears may be turning in that mill.

So, buckle up for what, all of a sudden, looks like an action-packed week. Lay in some tonic water and gin for both Covid-19 relief and some self-prescribed anesthesia as America unleashes its dogs of war upon itself.

    Preconditions to the French Revolution appear to have been: percolating strong political and social ideas that eroded the ruling Elite’s faith in itself (Here, French aid to the American Revolution and exposure to the American Revolution.); Emphasis on Equality over Liberty; Weak central Authority; government financial problems (insolvency); Social Desperation (hunger); unified ethnic society not easily divided by Race or interests (Third Estate); Access to Guns; Spineless, opportunistic ruling Elites; new media to propagandize and spread ideas; unwillingness of the soldiers to shoot the demonstrators; and the existence of radical new ideas (some very good; others very bad).

    • DrTomSchmidt August 10, 2020 at 11:48 am #

      “Access to Guns”

      Not so much. The reason that the Bastille was stormed was that that was the place in Paris where there was a sufficient cache of arms for the armless.

      The governor should have blown it up, rather than die the horrible death at the hands of the rabble that he actually suffered.

      …government financial problems (insolvency)

      Our Capitalism is in fact an Open system not a closed Economics – since the steam engine…

      Exactly like the USSR and China – they’ve never bothered appreciating what finite Energy resources they’ve extracted – but printed money as much as they needed – aka Communism.

      Western Civ unleashes its dogs of war upon itself – owing to the lack of more excess Energy!

      • lbs August 10, 2020 at 4:43 pm #

        Couldn’t disagree more. There’s plenty of energy right now. Peak oil is not here yet. What’s going on involves man-made crisis brought on by psychotic cultism, primarily the cult of wokeism. What triggered that cult? Probably guilt about having an easy life when people in the past as well as people today in other parts of the world do not.

        • EnterpriseSpaceship August 10, 2020 at 5:50 pm #

          …There’s plenty of energy right now…

          There never was or will be plenty-enough energy for humans….

          The total energy in the fresh batch of engine oil nature-cooking and then extracted from deep in the underground until applied into your car is far greater than the sum useful energy your car produced-travelling since last oil change…

          Peak oil actually started in 1914 when Churchill invaded oi-rich Iraq for resources, after British coal peaked in 1913.

          When …man-made crisis… is powered by incredibly energy-dense fossil fuels – they never end – until no more fossil fuels to make more of man-made crises…

          JHK will be beautifully writing endless coming articles like this – until oil super tankers finally stop sailing high seas – owing to scarcity…

          • Kim August 10, 2020 at 10:08 pm #

            @ EnterpriseSpaceship

            owing to scarcity…

            While I am sympathetic to your message, I would urge you to stop using the word “scarcity” with regard to coal and oil. Or you should qualify it.

            Because the issue is not in fact scarcity as there are currently vast amounts of coal and oil still under the ground or under the oceans so anyone who wishes to oppose your claims of scarcity can do it very easily.

            “scarcity” is not the point. Rather, the point is while the coal and oil exists, it is not as cheap to find and extract as it historically has been.

            One good example of this situation is Venezuela. It has heaps of oil. Vast amounts. But it is in the form of tar/oil sands which require a great deal of expensive processing to the point that it couldn’t be brought to market for under $100/barrel.

            When oil prices were high in the mid-noughts, Venezuela under Chavez provided citizens with a cornucopia of free money and social services. Since then, however, it has been in a nose-dive.

            What is at the heart of the dissolution of modernity that we have all been witnessing since, say, 1970 is that we cannot continue to maintain a society built on (inflation-adjusted) $24/barrel when oil costs, say, $72/barrel.

            In this situation, society must retrench, but unfortunately the decision seems to have been made to try to keep the boat floating by tearing up, burning and throwing overboard the boat’s planking. Not the approach I would recommend.

            So anyway, yes, sure there is a “scarcity”, but we have to qualify that claim by saying there is a scarcity of cheap or high quality oil and coal because there is still plenty of expensive or low quality oil and coal around.

          • EnterpriseSpaceship August 10, 2020 at 11:39 pm #

            @ Kim

            …$24/barrel when oil costs, say, $72/barrel.

            $24 doesn’t buy enough energy to extract and utilise the next barrel, and burning $72 worth of Energy would be much more than the Energy in the barrel-extracted!

            Our Western Civlisation loved this style of confusing and proxy[ing] Energy with Prices – since the steam engine – Economics!

            This far, voices among the commons are now calling for the Rights for Humans to Understand What Energy Really Is.

            M.K. Hubert: “So long as oil is used as a source of energy, when the energy cost of recovering a barrel of oil becomes greater than the energy content of the oil, production will cease no matter what the monetary price may be” – aka Scarcity.

          • GreenAlba August 11, 2020 at 7:21 am #

            The difference is simply between resources and reserves.

            An oil resource is the amount of a oil that exists in both discovered and undiscovered deposits. It is, by definition, merely an estimate (aka guess).

            Reserves are a subgroup of oil resources that have been discovered, have a known extent, and can be extracted at a profit.

            Resources are not necessarily scarce (but are unknown); reserves are scarce.

            That would save a lot of paragraphs…

    Do you agree with Mirabeau that Toleration is itself tyrannical since it implies Authority which contains within it the potentiality of Intolerance?

    Isn’t this like saying that a Virgin is a “Ho” because the Virgin can at some point choose to act like a “Ho”? Words have no meaning as long as Authority exists to potentially redefine their meaning? “Black Lives Matter”.

    “Was Aunt Bee really a “Ho”?”, Opie asks confused and befuddled. Was George Floyd really a great man rather than a criminal high on an overdose of Fentanyl? “Black Lives Matter”.

    “ Mirabeau denounced the notion of toleration itself as “tyrannical… since the existence of an authority with the power to tolerate violates the liberty of thought, since what it tolerates, it might also not tolerate.”

      If you believe Black lives matter, how can you not support Black Lives Matter? Silly? By no means: for people with IQ’s below 90 things like this are a conundrum. All Americans do not live in the same objective world. And this cuts across racial lines but of course that doesn’t mean race doesn’t exist or is unimportant. The latter ideas confuse people in the low triple digits – or thanks to the influence of ideology, even people with IQ’s well above that.

      Yes, Democracy is a sham – wherever and whenever it’s been tried. We were supposed to be a Republic, a government of Laws not men – where voting was the privilege of qualified men. Thus the Aristocratic viewpoint was maintained in its best sense. Only evil Aristocrats pretend not to be Aristocrats, but champions of the people. Good Aristocrats really champion the people without denying who they are.

        It is not *necessarily* a sham. Under certain conditions—generally smaller, more homogeneous and localized populations with high trust—democracy can persist as a tolerable way of managing local problems and keeping elites somewhat cognizant of the needs of the rank-and-file. I think of Switzerland, until relatively recently that is.

        Even then it still goes to wrack and ruin in the end—but that’s humanity for you.

        Of course, the USA now meets essentially none of these conditions. “Diversity” (or as it was once better known, “faction”) is actually the death-knell of serviceable democracy.

        • sevensec August 10, 2020 at 5:34 pm #

          …Our elites know this, I daresay–which in large part accounts for their blanket promotion of “diversity” as an unalloyed good. Make democracy completely unworkable through the promotion of faction–then when chaos looms, step forward to grab all remaining power, sadly saying, “democracy doesn’t work–because you people are such bigots”.

Which started in 1992 with the Clintons and Politically Correct Speech and has now cumulated in BLM and ANTIFDA .

    Why would the CCP want to do this. 2. reasons.1 the CCP wants to conquer the world with out firing a shot and make us all Communists. 2. The trouble started in Seattle and Portland. Seattle is the tech capitol of America. China wants to be the Tech leader in the world and they are doing a very good job of it. So destroy Seattle and ruin our Tech.

        Yes, it has been going on for a very long time, through the various Internationals and beyond. For centuries in fact, dep[ending on how you want to discuss it. But in the United States it is very easy to track this all back to the Comintern activities of the 1920s and then the placement of Comintern agents into Congress and also all through the government of FDR.

        The Chinese are the main pushers (literally) nowadays. Anyone who doubts their control of Western media need only look at with what careful delicacy the issues of the Three Gorges Dam have been reported in the maintream media.

        Anyway, the subversion and spying has been thoroughly documented and now we are living in the advanced stages of this social undermining.

            Agreed there’s not a lot about it just now, compared to Beirut, but the explosion in Beirut has actually happened.

            I can’t speak for US media generally, as I don’t have a broad view of it, but the media here are very actively and very regularly criticising Beijing over events in Hong Kong, which are more immediate, as well as the situation of the Uighers.

            The LA Times has managed to fit in quite a comprehensive article on the TG Dam, as recently as 28th July of this year.

            https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-07-28/china-floods-three-gorges-climate-change-dams

            “They are a step forward against a ticking clock, as climate change exposes China to more severe and frequent droughts and floods. The occurrence of heavy rains has risen by about 3.8% per decade since 1931, according to China’s Blue Book on Climate Change (2019). That’s a total increase of more than 20%, Liu said: “Very severe change.”

      Instead of fighting them o’er there, we allied with them and fought the Axis Powers. Now our cities are besieged. See how that works?

      Those that did fight them here were spat on. Like Joe McCarthy. Needless to say he and the John Birch society were right, and the media that slandered them were wrong. Communism has always been a dire threat, and we were already being infiltrated back then. But not from Russia so much. Joe was wrong about that. Communism is home grown, funded right from “our” domestic International Bankers.

        @ Sredni Vashtar

        Joe McCarthy didn’t just fight them here. He also went overseas to fight.

        When WW2 was declared, McCarthy was a circuit judge of the 10th District. As such, he could not be drafted. But he nonetheless gave up his judgeship and joined the marines.

        McCarthy served in the South Pacific. Here is how the poisonously McCarthy-hating Historynet.com describes his service:

        “On August 4, 1942, McCarthy began his tour of duty in the Pacific. For almost three years he served as an intelligence officer at Bougainville, in Papua New Guinea, debriefing combat pilots who returned from bombing runs over Japanese–held islands. By all accounts, he did a creditable job; his assignment, while hardly dangerous, was vital to the fliers who took the risks and got most of the glory.”

        They did their level best to smear his service but could not.

        Was McCarthy’s service at all onerous? Well, it was certainly more dangerous and uncomfortable than the life of District Court judge back in the States. But otherwise, what was life like around New Guinea and the nearby islands in those days? One book on the topic that I have enjoyed is

        Saipan: The Battle that Doomed Japan in World War II by James H. Hallas

        Note well, this story is absolutely hair-raising. I credit McCarthy for having the guts to go anywhere near it.

        Communism has always been a dire threat, and we were already being infiltrated back then. But not from Russia so much. Joe was wrong about that.

        I am flabbergasted. This statement is completely wrong. Russia and teh Comintern were up to their necks in US subversions. That has been irrefutably proven in many way, not least Venona.

        As to there being considerable home-grown subversion, of course that is true. But it was all organized and directed through front organizations by Comintern/Russia.

        Who directed Comintern and Russia? Big money, of course as you say. The Soroses of the era. But even the subversion of China was done through Russia and Comintern, with the essential support of able and experienced traitors in the State Department and the White House.

        • Sredni Vashtar August 10, 2020 at 11:47 pm #

          Perhaps! But read Anthony Sutton: Russian industry was financed by American Capitalism. Much of it back then just copies of American stuff. So indirectly it bounces back to “us” again. But of course with the internationalists, the physical loci becomes less important. They’re certainly not American because they reside here or Russian because they reside there.

          • Kim August 11, 2020 at 12:09 am #

            Yes. It is perfectly clear that Russia was never rich enough nor socially healthy enough to continue as it did for so long unsupported. It had to be supported with money/technology from outside.

            People in general have no idea how decrepit and impoverished the Soviet Union was even in its days as a great geopolitical opponent of the United States. It was an utter basket case.

            Someone once described Russia as “Central Africa with rockets” and my reading seems to confirm that.

            There is a good but rather heart-wrenching book that shows this very clearly called “Zinky Boys”. It is a collection of personal accounts by Russian soldiers and support staff and families of their experiences related to the Afghanistan War.

            As you read you ask yourself, how could such a dysfunctional and impoverished nation have fought such a war for so long?

            At the time, the Soviet Union was utterly broke and the spirit of its people smashed by communism. Of course, state control of information was total and lies were the regular lingua franca. It is strange to read because I see plenty of similarities to the situation in the West today and to what seems to be coming down the pike.

    Another night of major looting here in Chicago and zero police response. Supposedly they returned fire when shot at which escalated the riot due to their oppression of a well tanned teen.

    But as is well. Kim Fox is on pace to set new records for dropping felony cases.

    • BackRowHeckler August 10, 2020 at 10:59 am #

      Yes, major looting after midnight in the Magnificant Mile, distinguished community members embarking on yet another urban shopping spree to the extent they were showing up in uhaul trucks to carry away merchandise. No police response but the police were active earlier on Sat when they arrested a bunch of beach goers on the north side for not social distancing at the behest of the esteemed Mayor.

      About 120 Chi citizens shot so far in this month of August, 2020.

      • abbybwood August 10, 2020 at 1:37 pm #

        Which is why I support a strong curfew in all the cities being ravaged by these criminals.

        Set it for two hours before dark. That gives all the normies plenty of time to do their shopping and spend days outside enjoying the summer. No pretty sunset fun for the normies until all those caught out and about giving the middle finger salute to civil society can be rounded up and mug-shotted and booked. Make the fine at least $5000.

        I say lock the thugs and idiots up and keep the pro-bono lawyers busy. Before we know it all will be quiet and the normies can come back out to take their epic sunset pics and enjoy the cool evening weather.

          I’ve been wondering about the lack of curfews myself. Even a later curfew of 8 or 9 pm would give law enforcement the authority to clear the streets by a reasonable hour. The looting and destruction doesn’t really kick off until after dark so a curfew would eliminate most of it.

          Maybe they could also set designated hours for “protests”? Noon to 6 pm seems fair; given it is unlikely any of the rabble rousers have day jobs.

        • Kim August 10, 2020 at 11:04 pm #

Yet future Anthropologists will debate this, just as they do today about the ruins of Central and South America. The natives themselves say they were built by a race of fair skinned gods, yet we insist on giving them the credit. Why the self hatred? Maybe only the Chinese we give us the credit that is due us – once we are safely extinct.

      Chicago is a great example of BLM in power. The marxist redistribution of wealth to blacks is being accomplished by looting, with zero repercussions from city government. I was watching ABC live news on youtube and the propaganda officers continue to call it ‘protesting’.

    Biden is UNELECTABLE. Too much baggage/corruption unfolding… Joe’s sexual assault allegation now serious. Hunter’s involvement in Ukraine and China. Biden’s brother involved in Iraq construction projects. Biden’s deteriorating mental state is visible and very concerning. Biden would be a disaster running against President Trump, and the DNC and Party Elites know this.

    The DNC fix is in, Hillary will be the nominee and is the Democrat’s best candidate to run in 2020 (no matter how much Republicans and normal Americans despise her). She has enormous power in the party and has the voter base, funding and DNC support to launch by far the best campaign.

    • draupnir August 10, 2020 at 1:34 pm #

      We’ve rejected her twice before. Three times is a charm. I’m not sure she can hold up under the rigors of campaigning. She didn’t hold up well last time, and that was four years ago. She seemed past her best used by date even then I will never forget the sight of her shoe falling off, as her unconscious body was stuffed into a limo. I’ve heard whisper’s of parkinsonian problems and seen her freeze on television, and that head bobbing when she is startled is highly suspicious. She can’t even walk up or down a flight of stairs without assistance. Is that black guy who accompanied her during her last campaign to intervene when she freezes still available.

      Too late.

      Early voting will start in a matter of weeks after the DNC’s joke of a convention.

      As it stands now all the “debates” will happen AFTER early voting has started.

      Obama needs to be in control of the narrative in order to save his own hide and that of his “team” who were in on the coup attempt against Trump.

      Only Barr and Durham know all the names involved including higher ups at Justice/FBI, and Susan Rice is in the thick of it.

      She will be the VP and if the Democrats manage to win the election with their fraudulent mail-in voting scheme, Biden will be out quicker than you can say “Indict!” and President Rice and her close adviser Obama will deep-six the Barr/Durham probe faster than you can say “Cover-up!”.

      All will be forgotten in Mudville within a few weeks, so many millions of suckers will take the magic Covid-19 vaccine and all will be back to “normal” faster than you can say “The fix was in!”.

The good citizens of the town would then show their appreciation by voting them out of office as soon as possible. The crazed utopianism of America began very early.

      https://www.amren.com/news/2017/11/race-differences-in-rates-of-venereal-disease-std-sti/

      gonorrhea
      For both sexes, blacks are most likely to be infected. Black men are nine times more likely than white men to have gonorrhea, and Hispanic men are twice as likely. Black women are 8.4 times more likely than white women to be infected and Hispanic women are three times more likely.

      syphilis
      Syphilis infection rates vary greatly by sex, with men eight times more likely than women to carry the disease. Syphilis was nearly eradicated in the United States but has returned, primarily because it has become so common among men who have sex with other men. Fifty-eight percent of the 28,000 new cases reported in 2016 were in homosexual or bisexual man.

      Blacks are again the most likely to be infected, with black men 4.6 times more likely than white men, and black women seven times more likely than white women to have syphilis.

      Male/female comparisons are even more striking. Compared to white women, black men are 46 times more likely to have syphilis, Pacific Islander men 26 times, and Hispanic men 22 times.

      Chlamydia
      Chlamydia is more likely to infect women than men. Again, blacks are the most commonly infected, with black men seven times more likely to have chlamydia than white men, and black women more than five times more likely than white women. Hispanics are about twice as likely as whites to have the disease, and, again, Asians are least likely.

      Age differences for sexually transmitted diseases by race

      Figures are available for infection rates at different ages, and racial differences are especially striking for young people in the 10 to 14, and 15 to 19 age ranges. For example, although infecton rates for ages 10 to 14 are low in all racial groups, the chlamydia infection rates for black males of that age are 25 times the white rate, compared to a multiple of just over five for all black males. All other races show a similarly greater multiple compared to whites for males ages 10 to 14, except for Asians, who show an even lower multiple in that age group.

      I was a Registered Nurse for forty years working ICU and Med-Surg and never in my career did I place my nostrils next to a patient unless they were coding and I had to do mouth to mouth until the team with an airway and an Ambu bag hooked to oxygen showed up.

      A few weeks ago Joe claimed that when he was at Walter Reed Hospital a nurse leaned over and “breathed into his nostrils”’then went to her home to bring him some pillows.”

      This is right up there with the children feeling the thick blonde hair on his legs when he was a lifeguard. Biden says he loved holding the kids on his lap. I wonder if this was before, during or after Korn Pop came at him with chains for a fight and Biden took him down and kicked him out of the pool??

      Sounds like Biden has his own Special fantasy world he’s living in now.

      Sure would be fun to find Korn Pop and hear his side of the story.

    The importance, or lack thereof, of good leadership is becoming painfully apparent in the current presidential race in the USA. The inability of the Democrats to find a credible candidate to oppose Pres. Trump exposes a deep lack of leadership ability within the Democratic Party.

    It should have been easy. Leaving aside his many personal flaws, simply running against Mr. Trump’s record would be a winning strategy for the Dems, if only they had good leadership within their party.

    Perhaps this is Mrs. Clinton’s final legacy/revenge. Having failed to get her elected to the position that she felt entitled to, Mrs. Clinton left behind a party bereft of any effective party leadership.

    Overall, the failure of the political elites in the USA to put forward credible candidates is a tragedy of historic significance. It will all end in tears.

      Remember when Super Tuesday was upon us and Sanders voters were about to split the delegates and deny Biden the nomination?

      Obama made calls and everybody, poof!, dropped out!

      Obama knows Biden can never make the grade. Which is why Obama wants him. This way Obama (who is facing a world of hurt to his “legacy”) can control Biden, control who his VP pick will be and control the entire narrative.

      With practically the entire MSM on his side and the Deep Staters pulling every Hail Mary pass they can conjure up to destroy Trump, I see Obama in the drivers seat right now.

      Time will tell.

Plus, unless Hilary pulls another carpet bag move, they’re both New Yorkers, so they can’t share the ticket.

    Should there be assembled a Powerpoint presentation containing 50 slides that contained evidence of all malfeasance and corruption in the Legislative and Executive branches of the U.S. government since 2014 and 500 citizens assembled for a viewing: (Let us propose that all the evidence is documented and irrefutable.)

    1. before the fifth slide 100 citizens would be asleep
    2. by slide number ten another 100 citizens would be engaged with social media
    3. at slide number twenty five 100 would be asking “What is the plot?”
    4. by slide number forty another 100 would have already left the viewing
    5. as slide number fifty appeared on the screen 50 of the citizens would be sure the presentation was evidence of Russian interference and collusion and the remaing 50 would be sure it was proof of the theft of intellectual property by Chinese Communists.

    Does anyone even have a thought about how we plan to feed and shelter the children riding on the eviction trolley? I understand that concern is for fools like myself but even a glimmer of cognizance from those stationed above would be gratifying.

      Yes, it is frightening to think of how many people will be threatened in their homes and jobs over the next 12 months.

      Employers are not going to need cheap imported labor now. Anyone who isn’t fit to do serious crime is going to have to accept the going rate for his or her labor in a much smaller economy. But if they take the US dollar to an all-digital model domestically, what kind of money are the criminals going to steal? Government payment cards? Direct looting from stores? Why would the stores re-stock once they had experienced that?

      That’s going to be the real lockdown.

      And the idea that printing money and directly distributing it to people in general is sustainable even in the short term is ridiculous. But ridiculous or not they are going to have to do it now. That is baked into the cake. So 50,000 Dow and $30 Starbucks by this time next year? That is by no means impossible.

      Got a way to live once food trucks are being looted on their way to the stores?

      Because that is the story in Venezuela and the only difference between them and the USA is that they are further down along the glidepath to total destruction.

      And hey you, China sniggering down the back there. Where do you get your oil from, dickwad? Pull your head out of your Iron Ricebowl for a moment and look around. You’re in the same boat as everyone else. Yeh yeh yeh, I’ve heard it before, Belt and Road, global hegemon, well guess what, it ain’t going to happen. You’ll be lucky to have a Belt to hold your pants up as your 1.2 billion people hit the Road begging for permission to glean any rice that may have fallen by the roadside.

    The reaction to all the urban chaos will be interesting.

    Trump reelected? possible. These debates coming up will be illustrative. If Biden has an off night, boy oh boy– look out. Trump needs to bring out the truth about Biden– he is a frail, over the hill, elderly man who is suffering from the early stages of dementia.

    I’ve heard buddies of mine who are ex-military talking about the rise of heavily armed, anti-leftist militias.

    I don’t know. None of it is good news. This isn’t 1930s America. We don’t have a common culture anymore. It has all been sold or given away, gutted. This next depression is going to be very, very bad. At the least, it will be what happened in Chicago last night, or Portland every night, for many months to come.

    If you can, leave the big cities. These things can easily go from a temporary situation, to a permanent one– and that’s when civil order collapses.

      Agree with everything you said, PeteAtomic. There is going to be shooting and rioting no matter who “wins”—-and who knows how long that will take to determine. Biden needs to be exposed and humiliated. This will be the first presidential election I have voted for the Republican candidate. I don’t plan to walk around telling this to people…

        I voted for Trump. Before that I voted for a 3rd party. I think it was Libertarian. I don’t remember. Before that it was Barry, the 1st time… generally I vote for the “other” parties.

        The only way this isn’t gonna be the ugliest election in living memory is that it is an electoral college blowout again like 2016. I think it will be closer then that, this time. But who knows! The combination of rioting & a poor number of Biden performances just might get non-voters out this time, you know– what is it now, 60% of the adults who never vote (?)

        Yes. The Comintern agent who organized this race-huckstering in the USA in the 1920s went by the name of John Pepper while in the USA.

        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Pepper

        John Pepper, also known as József Pogány and Joseph Pogany (born József Schwartz; November 8, 1886 – February 8, 1938), was a Hungarian Communist politician of Jewish heritage. He later served as a Revolutionary in the Communist International (Comintern) in Moscow, before being cashiered in 1929. Later an official in the Soviet government, Pepper ran afoul of the secret police and was executed during the Great Terror of 1937–38.

All very well planned, organized, and rolled out – just like the mass invasion of Europe by young Muslim men. Poor bedraggled “Syrian” refugees in designer clothes, cellphones, and full bellies.

      The problem isn’t even islam. It is racial. Indonesia is the largest islamic country in the world. The amount of rape and violent crime is by comparison trivial. Interpersonal violence is absolutely not tolerated. You keep your hands to yourself or you will get time.

      And poverty doesn’t come into it either. There is no connection of crime and poverty.

          Indonesia permits the use of corporal punishment…

          They also have capital punishment. Firing squad. Good for them.

          As for corporal punishment, that is only in the province of Aceh, on the northern tip of Sumatra.

          https://www.ladunliadinews.com/2020/07/women-flogged-for-online-pimping-in.html

          They have Sharia law there. The Wahhabis have been fighting it out there for a long time but the traditional people of Indonesia havge their own culture of anima-ism and Buddhism and so on and have resisted the more extreme forms of Islam.

          There has historically been fighting over this:

          The Padri War (also called the Minangkabau War) was fought from 1803 until 1837 in West Sumatra, Indonesia between the Padris and the Adats. “Padris” were Muslim clerics from Sumatra who wanted to impose Sharia in Minangkabau country in West Sumatra, Indonesia.

          “Adats” comprised the Minangkabau nobility and traditional chiefs. The latter asked for the help of the Dutch, who intervened from 1821 and helped the nobility defeat the Padri faction.
          ……………………………………………………

          There were two female tv personalities (nationally famous singers with many hits) who had a catfight at a news conference a few years ago. They each got six monts in prison. Had to cut their hair off, which must have hurt.

    What Barr said last night was that nothing would be done until there was proof of criminal behavior sufficient to get a DC grand jury to issue indictments. Not only will nothing be done this week, there will be nothing before the election and it all goes away when Trump leaves in January. Charlie Brown had a better chance of kicking that football than we have of seeing any justice. I also expect the DC appeals court to allow Judge Sullivan to continue his abuse of Flynn.

      Ditto the prosecution of the rioters. Trump needs to fire his insider ass pronto and put a real Patriot in there.

      Just to be clear, Barr thinks the protesters are bad, maybe Bolsheviks or something. How can anybody be fooled by this guy? Haven’t we had enough exposure by now to see through this kind? Evidently not!

      To break it down: his super calm demeanor calms the sheep into thinking that everything is fine and that he’s on their side against the chaos causing wolves. So why doesn’t he close the gate then? Or try to get them out of the pen? Think, white sheep.

    2 Kings 9 v30 -v37 reminds us history does not repeat but rhymes happen. Coincidental in length with the culture-changing reign of Ahab and Jezebel in Biblical 1 Kings and 2 Kings, The man and woman from Arkansas came and killed and corrupted. Jezebel was the Biblical brains of Ahab’s rule, and credit is due milady in the modern permutation of this power couple.

    In modern times Jehu is seen in Trump, ultimately throwing the reign of Jezebel to the dogs in 2 Kings 9 v-30ff. If our modern Jezebel gets back on stage, it will not end well.

    As sage Jim says, big things are afoot. The vultures are circling America, and when this President of the United States publicly claims some rich people are after him, expect ripples at the farthest reaches of the pond.

        He was for International Capital and for the people of Britain. That’s simply not possible, but he was. Thus when they started to bring in Blacks and Browns he protested – and was shouldered aside. He had served his purpose and was just another fool to be put out to pasture. He consented to this. Such was the man. In his youth, he spoke out against Communism and those behind it. But he was no Joe McCarthy and submitted to the nascent Global state. Magically he then got out of debt – and he never talked so freely again.

    Maybe a push-up contest between Biden and Trump should be part of the election process. I doubt either of them could reach 10 without busting an aorta. Any candidate that can’t manage 10 is obviously not fit for the job.

    Maybe there should just be an age limit to elected office at the federal level. I always get push back when I argue for term limits, but honestly what have Pelosi and Feinstein (and the rest of them) done for you lately if ever. I understand the argument against term limits – we would lose the expertise, but that only works if people in these positions view their work as a public service for the people that sent them to Washington in the first place. Instead, they view it as a ticket to the gravy train.

    If they were limited to one term, they wouldn’t need to waste 50% of their time in office calling potential donors for re-election funds. I’d also make them stay in a dorm for their term in office. Probably Georgetown/Catholic/American University has some available dorm space.

      I’ve been thinking that it will be Susan Rice too. I don’t think Hillary will ever be Secretary of State again. Career politicians (criminal leeches) don’t like to go back to do the same job again. Bill Barr is a rarity in doing the AG gig again, but I think it’s because he was motivated to come back and do some ass kicking. He’s pissed. But Hillary is far to vain to do SoS again. I could see her agreeing to become AG though. She’s also pissed and would like to get some revenge. Heh..

      Kamala’s former horizontal bop partner Willie Brown recently urged her to not take the VP and instead go for the AG spot. So perhaps she and Hillary can duke it out. Heh heh. If Hillary ends up coveting that position then Kamala may find herself added to the infamous “Clinton List”.

    Biden’s entire “Presidency” would be virtual only. No one will ever see him for real. The DNC will have a fully-functional computer-generated Biden say and do whatever they want him to do. No gaffes or mistakes will ever happen. And once the Dems solidify their hold onto power, our nation will look more like 1951’s “The Thing from Another World” with their thawed-out monsters all around being revived to roam our nation freely and have their way with us.
    .
    This presidency would be virtual only. But the embedded problems of our nation will remain quite real and energetic. No one has a clue about how to fix anything but they don’t want you to know they don’t have a clue how to fix anything. Just make more fake money, toss it around everywhere like big stacks of bills that just fell out of the back of a Brink’s truck, watch desperate Americans scurry about grabbing as much of the stuff as they can before it blows away, and tune in for Biden’s evening appearance on the network news shows to see what the computer-generators cooked up for the night’s sordid entertainment.

    Those wacky Canadians have secured the services of Former Bank of England Governor Mark Carney in an advisory capacity to help guide Canada through economic recovery from the Covid debacle. Prior to the England gig he was the Gov of the Bank of Canada. Least the bugger can do for his homeland, I suppose. He’s from Fort Smith, Northwest Territories originally. Jordan Peterson is from Fairview, Alberta. Both little towns that you would miss if you blinked while driving through.

    Funny how some of the brightest often come from these obscure little places. Carney will be Prime Minister of Canada soon. We just need to dump that asshole Trudeau. Just injected a little foreign content to get your minds off American troubles…….Has anybody in a position of leadership for Black America commented on all the looting in Chicago? Unbelievable.
    Anybody figure out what Trump’s “you won’t see me for awhile” meant yet? I figure he’s going to hide out in the tall grass when the shit hits the fan just to piss off the media who will be swallowing their own tongues to get his reaction. Good strategy.

      Now you know that is a narrative they ain’t gonna let go of. George Floyd is a reason for “anti-racism”. Perhaps in that vein one could say this report is a weapon of white supremacy. Ultimately objective reality is an invention to propogate whiteness. Therefore in an anti-racist reality one could potentially only and always perceive him to be a victim of systemic oppression and violence. Even if he overdosed due to his own actions. The cause of his overdose can be traced back to 1619.

          Did you see it? He’s pretty cool, sending a human agent ahead of his band to kill all the dogs in town. He promised the human that he would make him a vampire too. But instead he just used him as an example of human inhumanity. The townspeople had shot him and locked him up in the jail. The Vampire Lord saw him in that sorry state and exclaimed how evil humans were for letting someone suffer like that – and then dispatched him even as he protested. Never give a non-sucker an even break!

          What the woman said, Oh God, at the sight of him. He theatrically looked around and up into the sky and said, No God.

            Yeah that is a good movie. Is it me or are those some of the scariest vampires you’ve ever seen? They were almost completely devoid of any humanity it seems as compared to the way vampires are depicted in other movies. And the Vampire Lord or someone in his entourage had to be like a ship captain or something too because they got to their destination on that big ship. I think they show it at the end of the movie kinda lurking out in the water in the fog and everything.

        (1) Type 2260

        (2) WIthout leaving a space, key Alt+x

        (3) Watch the magic happen.

        Or just use ‘insert’, ‘symbol’.

          You need to be more precise in your ciphers, meine frau. But your mentioning “alt” indicates the first meaning I’d say. And what is x but the burning cross, the ancient symbol of emergency in Scotland? Please report to get fitted for your uniform.

            I’m just not impressed by people who sloganise with them.

            I didn’t ‘mention’ Alt, I pointed out with appropriate accuracy which keys you need to use to get your desired symbol. Which has a generalised meaning, not just the one for which you wish to co-opt it.

            The Alt key gets used for all sorts of things for which I have needed to consult the extended ASCII codes in the past.

    Hey the stores in Chicago that were heavily looted the other night — Nordstroms, Gucci, Nike, Walgrens, to name just a few, there were dozens — in an intense Community Shopping Spree — were looted and gutted (and in some cases set on fire) just about 6 weeks ago, and were very recently reopened. Now they’re wrecked again. Why bother reopening?

    What do you think of ambitious, half-baked thinkers like Mirabeau?

    Mirabeau was one of these Saul Alinsky-type characters who often say something that superficially sounds profound, but if you dig down a bit his thinking is a bit absurd and dangerous. Unfortunately, these people’s perverted ideas seem to appeal to the weak-minded and the ambitious radicals. Very dangerous….

    Do you agree with Mirabeau that Toleration is itself tyrannical since it implies Authority which contains within it the potentiality of Intolerance?
    Isn’t this like saying that a Virgin is a “Ho” because the Virgin can at some point choose to act like a “Ho”? Words have no meaning as long as Authority exists to potentially redefine their meaning? “Black Lives Matter”.
    “Was Aunt Bee really a “Ho”?”, Opie asks confused and befuddled. Was George Floyd really a great man rather than a criminal high on an overdose of Fentanyl? “Black Lives Matter”.
    “ Mirabeau denounced the notion of toleration itself as “tyrannical… since the existence of an authority with the power to tolerate violates the liberty of thought, since what it tolerates, it might also not tolerate.”

      Perhaps the most dramatic ever: Rikki Lake had a small town guy on who was going to get to meet a huge crush from his town. Behold, a middle aged man walked on stage. They were vaguely acquainted but he had no idea. Mortally embarrassed (as his whole town was watching), he was a good sport about it and didn’t storm off the stage. But he made it clear he wasn’t interested. Amazingly, the Gay began to pursue him back home. Finally one day the Gay drove up to his house, and the young man came out with a shotgun. The Gay pleaded, “Let’s talk”. He had already been talked to again and again, but refused to relent. He got what he had coming. And of course the young man was destroyed forever as well.

      It rather depends how you look at it. Worldwide (leaving aside this Russian effort), 25 vaccines are at the ‘small-scale safety trial’ stage; 17 are in expanded safety trials; 7 are currently in large-scale efficacy trials, having already completed their safety trials. None is approved.

      Russia has merely skipped the large-scale safety trials. Anyone could do that.

      So, let’s hope the anti-vaxxers will show at least the same cynicism towards the Russian way of doing things as they do towards Big Pharma in general.

      • GreenAlba August 11, 2020 at 12:06 pm #

        They are apparently going to run the safety trials – it’s just that they’re doing that and going into production concurrently.

        Swings and roundabouts. But riskier than doing it the way it’s done in countries with tighter safety regulations.

      D’mitry Orlov has spoken often about how Russia is able to do more with less compared to the US these days. For one thing their new weapons systems greatly worry the boys at the Pentagon. I don’t care what they say out loud, they’re worried. Russia gets more research and development done for far less. People in the US scoff at how much the ruble is worth compared to the dollar, and that the overall Russian GDP is less than Italy’s. That’s fine, keep on scoffing American fools. For one thing, the GDP is horseshit anyway. Maybe fifty years ago the GDP actually represented something real and was worth mentioning. Not today.

      And this whole notion that Putin doesn’t care about the Russian people is absolute nonsense. I know the guy isn’t perfect. Who is? But he is a rarity in that he’s a national leader who really DOES care about his people. He would never release a vaccine on the Russian public if he thought for one second that it wasn’t safe enough. Our leaders would. And have.

      • GreenAlba August 11, 2020 at 5:11 pm #

        How would Putin know if the vaccine is ‘safe enough’? Intuition? That’s the function of large-scale safety trials, which haven’t been done.

        If the CDC did that you’d be up in arms. And claiming it was chipped into the bargain.

        Just goes to show how ideologically driven folks are. I’m not taking any vaccine that’s not been through extensive safety trials, whether it was developed in Oxford or Moscow.

        It’ll be funny to see anti-vaxxers becoming pro-vaxxers for an insufficiently tested vaccine, though. You couldn’t make it up.

            I didn’t say you were an anti-vaxxer, (you presumptuous American wanker?).

            I know it hasn’t gone through the same tests as the other vaccines currently being trialled, because Prof Alexander Gintsburg, the head of the Gamaleya Institute where the vaccine was developed, said vaccination would start while the phase 3 trials continued.

            He’s the guy running the trials. Who are you?

            And I didn’t say YOU were an anti-vaxxer. Note the phrase “It’ll be funny to see anti-vaxxers […], suggestive of both a plural, and of the future tense.

          • GreenAlba August 12, 2020 at 10:34 am #

            My apologies for the unjustified guess that you’d complain about the vaccine being chipped, nevertheless.

        • PeteAtomic August 12, 2020 at 8:35 am #

          “I’m not taking any vaccine that’s not been through extensive safety trials, whether it was developed in Oxford or Moscow.”

          absolutely, particularly with this virus. The vast, vast majority of people who get Covid will live. This isn’t like Ebola that has a 90% mortality rate or whatever.. Do the vaccine right with the correct testing, etc. and then get it out there for public consumption. A poorly concocted vaccine for this virus would probably just as likely kill as many people who die from the virus itself.

          • GreenAlba August 12, 2020 at 10:29 am #

            Agreed, Pete A, re the fact that the majority of people who get Covid will live and be fine, although some who are not even old or ill will suffer incapacitating consequences, for a duration that we don’t yet know.

            The difficulty with herd immunity through vaccination is that you need healthy, young people to be vaccinated anyway, to protect those who are at higher risk and for whom it is thought the vaccine will be less effective (when administered to them).

            Most people would, I think, consider vaccination to help protect their parents, I imagine. Many won’t – just the way it is.

      What’s happening is greed. Throw out all your old investment logic and just go with the flow. Pick out what assets you would want to invest in and buy them. Forget about the daily market swings.

      Actually, I wasn’t happy when gold and silver went up so much. They are my investments of choice, but I was ready to buy more, but not when the prices were so crazy. Now price’s have gone down and I may start buying more. BTW, my opinion is silver is the better option because it has more upside and the odds of government confiscation is much lower than for gold because it’s also an industrial metal. Investing in lead is also a good option if you get my drift. You can never have too much.

      • cc rider August 12, 2020 at 8:48 am #

        Of course the Kent State “solution” by that particular National Guard unit that day was out of line and murderous. For one thing they most likely shot the wrong people. Kids who were just there protesting and didn’t have anything to do with burning down the ROTC building on campus. I understand the frustration the Guardsmen were feeling that day, but still it was very wrong to shoot.

        But Portland? Whole…nuther….matter….If it were up to me all of those violent rioters would be fucking gunned down with fifty caliber machine guns. Turn them into goo. And then make the surviving rioters clean it all up. If they refuse, then they get the same “treatment”.

        I know I’m being mean, and I don’t give a shit. These assholes need to be removed from the living world. Not only are they as worthless as tits on a boar hog, they are a threat to the general welfare of all.

        So yes, I get your drift on the chant “Remember Kent State”.

    This is what Democracy looks like.

    From a technical viewpoint, this is what herd immunity look like. A natural response to a viral threat. Nothing to get hung about. But instead it’s straw bales forever. As Chuang Tzu said, ordinary people are “straw dogs” or target practice to the elite.

          • beantownbill. August 11, 2020 at 1:32 pm #

            The thing is, people don’t want to believe valid evidence when it goes contrary to their POV. Hence the continuation of the outbreak for people not taking Covid-19 precautions. It is a very serious human flaw.

          • GreenAlba August 11, 2020 at 1:46 pm #

            I agree, Beantownbill. My daughter went back to work in her nursery (kindergarten) yesterday and my grandson goes back to school tomorrow. I’m pleased about that, as I think, when it comes to schools, you just have to grasp the nettle and get on with it. There will be no distancing between the children, although I believe my daughter’s nursery kids will be divided into relatively large ‘bubbles’. The adults (teachers, assistants and parents) are expect to observe distancing protocols. I guess they’ll learn what can be done and what can’t. I’ve never thought there was any point in pretending you can keep young children apart in school or kindergarten.

            However, I’ve had them round in the garden for most of the summer, and eventually in the house as well. But I’ll be holding back now until I see how things go. I guess if they both get it (plus my grandson’s dad), and they all recover fine, that will mean they can come and go here as they please and we won’t be at risk. From them anyway.

        • beantownbill. August 11, 2020 at 2:56 pm #

          Sredni, you know I like to gamble. Yes life is a gamble, but as any gambler knows, you don’t take all thenbets, only the ones where the risk to reward ratio is well in your favor. The risk of death for Covid-19 is pretty low, overall, a few tenths of a percent. Looking at it that way, I can see your point. However, one much look at the details more carefully.

          The death rate for people over 65 is about 8%, which is about one chance in eleven and a half in favor. That’s about forty times the younger person rate. The rate of death for flying is a zillion to one in our favor. If the odds of you dying in a plane crash were 11.5 to one, wouldn’t you think about flying differently? Maybe not enough to stop flying, but at the least maybe not so confident during the flight. Probability is a number, and no matter the environment, if different activities produce the same number, your chances are the same, no matter whether you are skydiving without a parachute or stubbing your toe.

          One last thing: it isn’t just dying of Covid-19, it’s also the serious aftereffects of the disease. I don’t want to suffer any organ damage. I don’t know the numbers, but adding in those factors significantly lowers the odds against you.

          I don’t live in fear, and I also don’t consider wearing a mask a violation of my rights because it’s my own decision to wear one. I might reconsider if I were forced to, but that hasn’t occurred yet.

          As far as you getting old like me, I can tell you that aside from some aches and pains, I feel pretty physically vital – particularly in ways that men feel important. All I’ve done is slow down in many ways, but still able to do everything I used to. I admit that if I still played baseball, I couldn’t run down the first base line real fast. Big deal.

          • JohnAZ August 11, 2020 at 3:35 pm #

            Pay no attention to that SV creature. I am noT afraid of the
            Covid, well maybe a little. Respect is the word I use. I worked as a nurse during the SARS and HIV times and respected the hell out of both of them.

            People wearing masks, maintaining distance, washing hands etc. are simple precautionary steps that show respect for each other. Arizona’s new cases are plummeting right now. 5000 cases a day at the peak, 832 this morning. Why? I, for one, notice almost no one without a mask on any more. Stores are enforcing the rules. Respect for the rules!

            SV can be a man and refuse to mask up. He can tell all those figures in authority to f**k off all he wants.

            If people did not violate the rules of approach we might all be back to normal now. Instead we keep hearing about single individuals infecting groups because they did not follow the rules. Did you see that picture of the high school hallway in Georgia? As of yesterday, 9 kids from that high school have caught the disease.

            All us old geezers will follow the dictums and stay safe. SV, I pray that the crud does not get you.

    Well, if you think things have been crazy so far, wait until next week when everything starts getting even more off-the-wall, after the Biden simulacrum announces its VP choice. Looks as if It will be one of the usual suspects, but who really knows? Surprise, surprise.

    Then, just when things begin to settle down, we will have the real, final campaign. Then the ultimate mess begins. Once the unofficial election results are reported (unofficial because no matter who wins, the election will be contested), the crazy goes into high gear.

    Thinking about my long history of optimism on this blog, I’m very surprised I’m spouting all this stuff. It’s raining and thundering here just south of Boston proper, and the weather reflects my mental and emotional outlook. I can’t help feeling we’re in the Last Days.

It is so far playing out almost exactly as he said a few weeks ago. He thinks that the metals will decline until late September or early October. Then the bull market of all bull markets for metals will truly begin. And then of course the dollar will go in the other direction at that point.

          Obviously, Rice will now probably speak when Kamalalalalala was originally going to speak and then Kamalalalalalalala will be given the VP speaking slot.

          Also, Rice had just recently divested from her investment in Netflix. That seemed to be a pre-VP candidate move. I’m sure she’s not a happy camper right now. But, she’ll put on a brave face and “fight for the team”. I’m betting she’ll be Sec of State. Or maybe even AG if Joe BiteMe wins.

    Looking back at 2016 with the Dems having a 3 million popular vote plurality, and maybe getting an even greater turnout this time, and with the number of TWATs continuing to grow, I’d say Trump has a long way to go and a short time to get there.

        Age difference meant nothing to her because at that time Willie was probably at the height of his political power in CA. A case could be made that he may have been essentially the most powerful politico in CA. For a few years anyway. She was goin’ places baby.

        Same scenario for all the Hollywood hos who fucked Harvey Weinstein even when he was old and hideous. And they can cry me a river about being “raped”. Me Too my ass. Yeah, they too all whores. They knew damn well what they were doing, and most got exactly what they wanted out of the “transaction”.

    Does it make any substantial difference whether it was Harris or Rice? Personally, I preferred Rice because I trust Harris a lot less than Rice, not that I trust Rice.

    President Harris sounds more mainstream than President Rice, although if Rice was picked and we nicknamed Old Joe “Beans“, we would have gotten a Beans and Rice ticket. Although when Biden goes, Harris could pick Paris Hilton as VP and we would a Harris-Paris executive branch.

        Tito’s is made just down the road from me. I do like it, but I have to admit that the Frenchies make a pretty damn good vodka in Grey Goose. Tito’s of course is much better priced. Not cheap, but not budget busting either.

        Recently Dan Akroyd was on Joe Rogan talking about his vodka made in Canada. It’s made from glacier water. I haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds interesting. It’s made uniquely to say the least. Actual diamonds are involved.

          I was using Titos in my virus busting Screwdriver Smoothies, which has worked so far because nobody here has caught the Virus. I also mixed up a batch of hand sanitizer, part Titos Vodka, part hydrogen peroxide. It kills all germs on contact, and you could probably drink a shot here and there too.

          I don’t think it’s a stretch to state that Titos Vodka has saved our lives. CC Rider, if you ever run into a Tito’s employees please thank them for members, will you?

            Much of Russian Vodka is the real deal, although Grey Goose is very close. Real vodka isn’t supposed to be smooth, although Stolichnaya is. I know a little about vodka as I am basically Russian.

            Have you ever had Hammer and Sickle Vodka from Russia? Lol… I tried it a few years ago because I loved the bottle. It is frosted white with a red hammer and sickle on it. Plus, the liquor store guy told me that it is actually quite good. And he was right! In fact it is similar to Grey Goose but in my opinion even better.

    Biden/Whitmer would have been his best ticket, but Biden/Harris has its own perks. I think maybe Harris/Whitmer in 2024 would be unbeatable. It really doesn’t matter at this point, since the Republicans won’t win the White House for probably 20 years, if ever again. The only thing worse than losing to a black man would be losing to a black woman. You gotta love it. I only wish Harris could tag team with Biden and have her chance at Trump. She would eat his lunch. Harris debating Pence is like a waste of good scotch. The thing is when Trump loses, what are you shit eaters going to eat. No more shit rolling down the White House steps. You all are going to starve, have shit eaters withdrawls. It’s worse than heroin I hear.

          The last guy’s story is harrowing.

          “I admit I voted for Donald Trump in 2016. I admit traveling deep into the conspiracy trap over COVID-19. All the defiant behavior of Trump’s more radical and rowdy cult followers, I participated in it. I was a hard-ass that stood up for my “God-given rights.”

          In great haste, I began prognosticating the alphabet soup about this “scamdemic.” I believed the virus to be a hoax. I believed the mainstream media and the Democrats were using it to create panic, crash the economy and destroy Trump’s chances at re-election.

          And so, believing the pandemic to be a hoax, my partner and I hosted family members on Saturday, June 13. On Sunday, June 14, I woke up sick.

          By Monday, June 15, my partner and my parents were all sick. That same Monday, my in-laws traveled to witness the birth of their first grandchild. They took with them my father-in-law’s mother and one of my partner’s sisters. That night my father-in-law became ill. Then my mother-in-law and their daughter began feeling sick. So they cut their trip short.

          Two days later, my father-in-law’s mother got sick. The new mommy and daddy got sick, too. We all tested positive for COVID-19. Only the newborn was spared.

          He goes on to describe the expanding wave of infection within the family and the death of loved parents. Still, if you feel a need to write his story off as some sort of propaganda or other CT-based BS, go right ahead. I just hope his story doesn’t become YOUR story.

    The following is adapted from a lecture delivered on June 18, 2020, for a Hillsdale College online symposium, “The Coronavirus and Public Policy.” By Heather MacDonald

    Over the last four months, Americans have lived through what is arguably the most consequential period of government malfeasance in U.S. history. Public officials’ overreaction to the novel coronavirus put American cities into a coma; those same officials’ passivity in the face of widespread rioting threatens to deliver the coup de grâce. Together, these back-to-back governmental failures will transform the American polity and cripple urban life for decades.

    Before store windows started shattering in the name of racial justice, urban existence was already on life support, thanks to the coronavirus lockdowns. Small businesses—the restaurants and shops that are the lifeblood of cities—were shuttered, many for good, leaving desolate rows of “For Rent” signs on street after street in New York City and elsewhere. Americans huddled in their homes for months on end, believing that if they went outside, death awaited them.

    This panic was occasioned by epidemiological models predicting wildly unlikely fatalities from the coronavirus.

    On March 30, the infamous Imperial College London model predicted 2.2 million deaths in the U.S. by September 1, absent government action. That prediction was absurd on its face, given the dispersal of the U.S. population and the fact that China’s coronavirus death toll had already levelled off at a few thousand. The authors of that study soon revised it radically downwards.

    Too late. It had already become the basis for the exercise of unprecedented government power. California was the first state to lock down its economy and confine its citizens to their homes; eventually almost every other state would follow suit, under enormous media pressure to do so.

    Never before had public officials required millions of lawful businesses to shut their doors, throwing tens of millions of people out of work. They did so at the command of one particular group of experts—those in the medical and public health fields—who viewed their mandate as eliminating one particular health risk with every means put at their disposal.

    If the politicians who followed their advice weighed a greater set of considerations, balancing the potential harm from the virus against the harm from the shutdowns, they showed no sign of it. Instead, governors and mayors started rolling out one emergency decree after another to terminate economic activity, seemingly heedless of the consequences.

    The lockdown mandates employed mind-numbingly arbitrary distinctions. Wine stores and pot dispensaries were deemed “essential” and thus allowed to stay open; medical offices were required to close. Large grocery stores got the green light; small retail establishments with only a few customers each day were out of luck. Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer notoriously used her red pen within megastores to bar the sale of seeds, gardening supplies, and paint.

    It was already clear when these crushing mandates started pouring forth that shutting down every corner of the country was a reckless overreaction. By mid-March, two weeks before the Imperial College model was published, Italian health data showed that the coronavirus was terribly lethal to a very small subset of the population—the elderly infirm—and a minor health problem to nearly everyone else who was not already severely ill. The median age of coronavirus decedents in Italy was 80, and they died with a median of nearly three comorbidities, such as heart disease and diabetes. The lead author of the Imperial College model has admitted that up to two-thirds of all coronavirus fatalities would have died from their comorbidities by the end of 2020 anyway.

    Three months later, this profile of coronavirus casualties still holds true. Public health interventions could have been targeted at that highly vulnerable population without forcing the American economy into a death spiral.

    DISINFORMATION

    By now it is impossible to attribute the media’s failure to publicize the facts about the coronavirus to mere oversight.

    Every story that does not mention, preferably at the top, the vast overrepresentation of nursing home deaths in the coronavirus death count—above 50 percent in many countries and 80 percent in several of our states—is a story that is deliberately concealing the truth. Casual readers and viewers have been left with the false impression that everyone is equally at risk, and thus that draconian measures are justified.

    The media have been equally uninterested in the scientific evidence regarding outdoor transmission. Coronavirus infections require what Japan calls the three Cs: confined spaces, crowded places, and close contact. The fleeting encounters on sidewalks and public parks that characterize much of city life simply do not result in transmission. And yet if you briskly approach someone on one of Manhattan’s broad and now empty sidewalks, the oncoming pedestrian may lunge into the street or press up against the closest wall in abject fear if you are not wearing a mask. You may be cursed at.

    The public health establishment has been equally complicitous in creating this widespread ignorance. It has failed to stress at every opportunity that for the vast majority of the public, the coronavirus is at most an inconvenience. The public health experts did not disclose that outdoors was the safest place to be and that people should get out of their homes and into the fresh air.

    Not coincidentally, the experts’ newfound power over nearly every aspect of American life was dependent on the maintenance of fear.

    While the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus has been demographically circumscribed and lower than the previous flu pandemics of 1968, 1956, and 1918 when adjusted for population, the economic toll has cut across every sector of the country and every population group. Whole industries have seen their capital wiped out overnight.

    Despite a better than expected employment report in early June, the long-term effects of the shutdowns and the continuing mandates to socially distance will prevent a full economic recovery for years to come. Forty-four million Americans are still out of work. Supply chains have been thrown into chaos. Fresh fruits and vegetables are being plowed under and livestock burned uneaten for lack of access to processing plants and markets. Small businessmen who have put their life savings into creating a service that customers want have seen their hard work go up in smoke. Without rent from their retail tenants, commercial landlords can’t pay their taxes. City budgets have been decimated. The additional $8 trillion in public debt taken on to try to substitute for the private economy will depress opportunity for generations.

    And what has been the response to this economic carnage on the part of our ruling class? Branding strategies! Politicians have put cute names on what has been a taking of private property on an unprecedented scale. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo calls the state lockdowns “New York on Pause,” as if commerce can be indefinitely suspended and then magically resuscitated with the flick of a switch.

    The politicians’ ignorance about the complexity of economic life was stunning, as was their hypocrisy. To a person, every elected official, every public health expert, and every media pundit who lectured Americans about the need to stay in indefinite lockdown had a secure (“essential”) job. Not one of them feared his employer would go bankrupt. Anyone who warned that the effects of the lockdowns would be more devastating than anything the coronavirus could inflict was accused of being a heartless capitalist who only cared about profits.

    But to care about the economy is to care about human life, since the economy is how life is sustained. It is a source of meaning, as well as sustenance, binding humans to each other in a web of voluntary exchange. To its workers, every business is essential, and to many of its customers as well. Even judged by the narrowest possible definition of public health—lives lost—the toll from the lockdowns will exceed that of the virus, due to the cancellation of elective medical procedures, patients’ unnecessary fear of seeking medical treatment, and the psychological effects of unemployment.

    In May, politicians started inviting a few scattered sectors of their state economies to reopen, with blue state governors and mayors being particularly parsimonious with their noblesse oblige. These blue state officials invoked “science” to justify yet another arbitrary set of guidelines to determine which businesses would be allowed to start up again and when. “Science,” we were told, dictated the timetable for reopening, based on rates of hospital bed vacancies and new infections.

    In fact, the numerical benchmarks, enforced with draconian punctiliousness, seem to have been drawn out of a hat—they certainly had no evidence behind them. But even with official reopenings, many customers will be long reluctant to resume their normal habits of consumption and travel thanks to the uninterrupted fearmongering on the part of the media, the experts, and elected leaders.

    Being fantastically risk averse is now a badge of honor, at least among the professional elites. A young tech columnist for The New York Times wrote an op-ed in May about cancelling a restaurant reservation in Missoula, Montana. Missoula County had been virus-free for weeks, and Montana’s case load had been negligible. Nevertheless, the columnist experienced a panic attack after booking a table, contemplating the allegedly lethal risk that awaited him in the reopened restaurant. Rather than being ashamed of his cowardice, the columnist was proud, he wrote, to have bailed out of his reservation in order to continue sheltering in place.

    The absurd social distancing protocols make operating many businesses and much of city life virtually impossible. The six-foot rule is as arbitrary as the “metrics” for reopening. (The World Health Organization recommends three feet of social distance, and many countries have adopted that recommendation.) Keeping customers and employees six feet apart will render a city’s basic institutions unworkable, from restaurants to concert halls. The Metropolitan Opera has cancelled the first half of its 2020-2021 season while it figures out how to maintain social distancing among audience members and on the stage. Every other performing arts organization will face the same almost insuperable dilemma.

    My 34-story apartment building in Manhattan, like many others, has imposed a one person per elevator ride rule, even though the elevator interiors are more than six feet across. I invite anyone who may also be waiting for an elevator to share my ride up; no one has ever accepted the offer, even though both I and my invitee are masked. Nor has anyone ever extended such an offer to me. Now translate this hysteria to Manhattan’s massive office towers. If New York City ever fully reopens, a similar social distancing rule for office elevators will lead to lines of workers around every midtown block each morning. As long as this fear lasts, city life is not possible.

    FROM COLD WAR TO HOT

    Then the cities started burning. What had been a cold war on the economy and civic life became a hot war.

    Government officials, having shut down commerce due to unblemished ignorance of how markets work, now enabled the torching and looting of thousands of businesses due to the shirking of their most profound responsibility: protecting civil peace.

    On Monday, May 25, a video of the horrific arrest and death of a black man suspected of passing a forged $20 bill in Minneapolis went viral. A police officer kept his knee on George Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes as Floyd begged for help breathing. Floyd was already handcuffed and thus posed a minimal risk. The officer ignored Floyd’s distress even as Floyd stopped talking or moving.

    The officer’s behavior was grotesquely callous and contrary to sound tactics, and the officer will be prosecuted and punished under the law. His behavior was not, however, representative of the overwhelming majority of the ten million arrests that the police make each year. Indeed, there is no government agency more dedicated to the proposition that black lives matter than the police. Nevertheless, within 24 hours, the violence had begun.

    On the night of Thursday, May 28, Minneapolis Mayor Jacob Frey ordered the city’s Third Police Precinct evacuated as the forces of anarchy descended upon it for a third day in a row. The building was promptly torched, sending a powerful sign that society would not defend its most fundamental institutions of law and order.

    Soon cities across the country became scenes of feral savagery. The human lust for violence, the sheer joy of plunder and destruction, were unleashed without check. Police officers were shot at, run over, slashed with knives, and clubbed; two current and former law enforcement officers were killed in cold blood. Police cruisers and station houses were firebombed; courthouses were trashed. Looters drove trucks through storefronts and emptied the stores’ contents into the back of these newly repurposed vehicles of civil war. ATMs were ripped out of walls; pharmacies plundered for drugs.

    Blue state governors and mayors ordered law enforcement to stand down or use at most (in New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s words) a “light touch” with the rioters. By the time these progressive public leaders realized that something more forceful needed to be done, it was too late. The fire of sadism and hatred could not be contained, but would have to burn itself out. Belatedly imposed curfews were universally ignored: why should anyone obey an edict from a government that refused to protect human life and livelihoods?

    Perversely, the rioting exhibited features of the coronavirus shutdowns in even more literal form. If before, businesses were boarded up due to bankruptcy, now they were boarded up to prevent further theft. Small businesses, lacking the resources to outlast the shutdowns, now saw the final depletion of their inventories. The fortress mentality in residential buildings from coronavirus hysteria was replaced by an actual fortress, as building managements hastily erected plywood barriers over lobby windows and doors. The hyped-up fear of going outside into allegedly virus-infected public spaces became a justified fear of leaving one’s fortress and being sacrificed to the mob. Shelter-in-place became a necessity, not a product of government overreach. The fall of night became a source of terror for ordinary citizens and business owners.

    Previously, securely-employed public officials breezily dismissed their constituents’ anguish over unemployment and growing business failures. Now those same officials, safe behind their security details and publicly-owned mansions, foreswore the activation of the National Guard and military. None of those officials owned businesses, so they faced no loss either from economic quarantine or from physical rampage.

    DOUBLE STANDARDS

    One thing did change markedly between the coronavirus lockdowns and the riot lockdowns, however: elite wisdom regarding social distancing. The politicians, pundits, and health experts who had condescendingly rebuked business owners for reopening without official permission, who had banned funerals and church services of more than ten people, and who had heaped scorn on protesters who had gathered in state capitols to express their economic distress, suddenly became avid cheerleaders for screaming crowds numbering in the thousands.

    Most remarkably, public officials overtly admitted to choosing the forms of assembly that would be allowed based on the content of the protesters’ speech. Mayor de Blasio explained that protests over “400 years of American racism” are not the same as a “store owner or the devout religious person who wants to go back to services.” While the store owner or worshipper may be “understandably aggrieved,” he conceded, their grievances must still be suppressed in the name of coronavirus safety. Not the grievances of the protesters and rioters, however. New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy congratulated the Black Lives Matter activists and distinguished them from mere “nail salon” entrepreneurs protesting their ongoing business stasis. The two are in “different orbits,” Murphy said.

    The politicians’ hypocrisy was a mere warm-up for that of the public health establishment. These were the people whose diktats had inspired the lockdowns and whose allegedly supreme knowledge of medical risk was allowed to cancel all other considerations in maintaining a functioning society. Nearly 1,200 of these same experts, including from the CDC, signed a public letter supporting the unsocially distanced protests on the grounds that “white supremacy is a lethal public health issue that predates and contributes to COVID-19.”

    One could just as easily argue that a global depression, induced by the gratuitous crushing of trade and the hollowing out of capital, is a lethal public health issue of at least equal magnitude. But it turns out that public health is as much about politics as it is about science.

    This shameless reversal should have torpedoed the lockdowns once and for all. If it turns out that mass gatherings were now not just allowable but to be encouraged, no rationale remained for preventing restaurants and stores from reopening. But instead, once media attention became a little less monomaniacally focused on the anti-police agitation, the familiar chorus rose up again, directed at everyone else: Stay socially distanced! Wear your outdoor masks! No gatherings of more than a few dozen! No entering “non-essential” stores! The same arbitrary “metrics” for business reopenings were still in place and still being enforced.

    By now, the collapse of government legitimacy is complete. For three months, public officials abdicated their responsibility to balance the costs and benefits of any given policy. They put the future of hundreds of millions of Americans in the hands of a narrow set of experts who lack all awareness of the workings of economic and social systems, and whose “science” was built on the ever-shifting sand of speculative models and on extreme risk aversion regarding only one kind of risk.

    The public officials who ceded their authority to the so-called experts were deaf to the pleas of law-abiding business owners who saw their life’s efforts snuffed out. They engineered the destruction of trillions of dollars of wealth, through thoroughly arbitrary decision making. And then they stood by as billions more dollars of work burned down. Public order and safety, equal treatment under the law, stability of expectations—all the prerequisites for robust investment have been decimated. The failure to quell the riots means that more are inevitable. Any future business faces possible destruction by another lockdown or by looting—which it will be is anyone’s guess.

    ***

    The coronavirus lockdowns demonstrated our leaders’ ignorance of economic interdependence. After the riots, that ignorance has been shown to run far deeper. It is an ignorance about government’s most fundamental obligation: to safeguard life, liberty, and property. It is an ignorance about human nature and human striving.

    Property and capital are not soulless abstractions, easily replaced by an insurance payout, as the rioters and their apologists maintain. (The Massachusetts Attorney General noted that burning is “how forests grow.”) Capital is accumulated effort and innovation, the sum of human achievement and imagination. Its creation is the aim of civilization. But civilization is everywhere and at all times vulnerable to the darkest human impulses. Government exists to rein in those impulses so that individual initiative can flourish. America’s Founders, schooled in a profound philosophical and literary tradition dating back to classical antiquity, understood the fragility of civil peace and the danger of the lustful, vengeful mob.

    Our present leaders, the products of a politicized and failing education system, seem to know nothing of those truths. Pulling the country back from the abyss will require a recalling of our civilizational inheritance.

    SV: This person gets it. A woman no less. Is there hope? Not much. We must defeat the masked ones, the generations of swine. Then we can talk about elevators and nail salons again. Once defeated, they must be unmasked. They will each scream like the weirdo after Trump was elected. The scream of the damned. Only some can be saved. As for the rest? I don’t know…..

    Biden and Kamala will implement the Affirmatively Furthering Fair Housing Rule.

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/stanley-kurtz-obama-era-affirmatively-furthering-fair-housing-rule-attack-on-suburbs

    The discussion in this video is very interesting in many areas. For example, did you know that the AFFH Rule will allow for local governments to be forced into taking part in a new, previously non-existent level of government (including enforcement and taxation) between your local government and the state government?

    More locally, it will enforce “diversity” (black and brown crime and dysfunction) from horizon to horizon.

    What will that bring to American whites? More of this kind of thing:

    Wilson man wanted in fatal shooting of 5-year-old apprehended

    WILSON, N.C. — A Wilson man was in custody Monday night, about 24 hours after police said he shot and killed a 5-year-old boy.

    Darius N. Sessoms, 25, was apprehended in Goldsboro by members of the U.S. Marshals Service Carolinas Regional Fugitive Task Force, Goldsboro police and the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office. He was charged with first-degree murder and was being held without bond in the Wilson County jail.

    Police were called to a shooting in a neighborhood in the 5100 block of Archers Road just after 5:30 p.m. Sunday.

    Family members said Cannon Hinnant was playing outside his father’s house when he was shot in the head. The boy’s two sisters, ages 8 and 7, saw their brother get shot, according to Cannon’s mother.

    Cannon was taken to Wilson Medical Center, where he died.

    No details about a possible motive for the shooting have been released, but police said the shooting wasn’t random.

    Sessoms lives next door to Cannon’s father, and a neighbor said that the two men had dinner together Saturday night and that Sessoms was at his neighbor’s home earlier Sunday.

    Doris Lybrand, who witnessed the shooting, said Sessoms ran up to Cannon, put the gun near his head and fired before running back to his own house.

    “My first reaction was he’s playing with the kids,” Lybrand said. “For a second, I thought, ‘That couldn’t happen.’ People don’t run across the street and kill kids.”

    She said she realized the gun was real when she saw Cannon’s father’s reaction to the shooting, and she quickly went inside her home, locked the door and tried to call 911.

    “You don’t expect to see somebody shoot someone,” she said.

    Cannon’s grandmother said the family was happy to know that Sessoms had been arrested, but they’re devastated by the young boy’s senseless killing.

      I just read about this story tonight. The murder of the this poor boy happened on Sunday evening. Why is this not front page news on Fox right now? There is still plenty of room even with all the trifle about Kamala splashed up there. But now I can’t help feeling that if the races were reversed, then perhaps a motive might just happen to be clear, at least sort of, and it’s pretty certain it would still be front page material too.

        Yes, no national reportage, as usual.

        And I can say “as usual” because equally shocking and random examples of pointless, ludicrous black-on-white murders can be found – literally – almost every day of the week.

        I have come to the firm conclusion that blacks are a race of low-impulse-control psychopaths.

      It only makes sense that blacks should be the buffers against BLM. But then again they probably just didn’t want the melanated vandals from taking their “reparations” from a melanated neighborhood. However, the reparations taken from the Magnificent Mile are probably ok given the overall reaction when that happened.

    As the former Los Angeles District Attorney, isn’t Kamala Harris basically a former “Cop”? I think that she once had a badge “and everything”?

    • cc rider August 12, 2020 at 9:07 am #

      Yes, and the more lefty blacks hate her because of her term(s) as DA. In fact the very white, with a tine amount of Pocahontas, Elizabeth Warren was more favored by them.

      I see pictures of Kamala and I don’t know. She doesn’t look very black to me. Just look at her hair. Of course she is approximately half black, but just like Obama that is black enough for leftist politico identification. Another example is that Tiger Woods is half black and half asian. But, to the lefty sports press and the MSM he is black. The black golfer. He didn’t appreciate being called the black golfer, but he knew he was stuck with it so he just ignored it as best he could.

      In fact:

      “Woods was born in 1975 in Cypress, California,[16] to Earl[17] and Kultida “Tida” Woods.[18] He is their only child and has two half-brothers, Earl Jr. and Kevin, as well as a half-sister named Royce from his father’s first marriage.[19]

      Kultida (née Punsawad) is originally from Thailand, where Earl had met her when he was on a tour of duty there in 1968. She is of mixed Thai, Chinese, and Dutch ancestry.[20] Earl was a retired lieutenant colonel and Vietnam War veteran who reported African American, Chinese, and Native American descent.[21][22] Tiger describes his ethnic make-up as “Cablinasian” (a syllabic abbreviation he coined from Caucasian, Black, American Indian, and Asian).[23]”

      So Tiger’s dad wasn’t even one hundred percent black himself. Doesn’t matter. Tiger will always be black to the leftist race mongers who are obsessed with race.

      I remember one time a woman from Europe over here in the US remarking, “Why is the US so obsessed with racial identity? Every form you have to fill out asks for your race, for example.” Well, that’s because our leftists in the US are mentally ill and neurotic. And they are in reality the WORST kind of racist.

      • Sredni Vashtar August 12, 2020 at 12:14 pm #

        Yes, the kind that hate their own race. Sick, Crazy, and Evil.

        • Sredni Vashtar August 12, 2020 at 12:20 pm #

          In contrast, healthy people want to preserve their race and nation. But the normies have had this beaten out of them, so they’re afraid to say it or don’t consciously believe it. But they still live as if they do. This fills the fanatics with rage and contempt: Whites need to be killed or blended out of existence in order to be good.

          Needless to say Christianity is as much use as tits on a boar on this issue. A Universal religion – simply not FOR us the way Judaism is for Jews or Hinduism is for Hindus. What a tragedy.

          The Founders saw themselves as the Chosen People to the extent they were religious. That’s the only answer in religious terms.

    I find Kamalalala’s Wikipedia to be quite interesting:

    Kamala Devi Harris was born on October 20, 1964, in Oakland, California.[2] Her mother, Shyamala Gopalan, was a breast-cancer scientist who had emigrated from Tamil Nadu, India in 1960 to pursue a doctorate in endocrinology at UC Berkeley.[8] Her father, Donald Harris, is a Stanford University emeritus professor of economics, who emigrated from British Jamaica in 1961 for graduate study in economics at UC Berkeley.[9][10] In a 2018 article written in Jamaica Global, Donald Harris claimed to be a descendant of slave owner Hamilton Brown.[11] Biracial of Indian Tamil and Jamaican descent, Kamala Harris identifies simply as “American”.[12][13]

    Didja catch that? She identifies simply as “American”. Hmmmmm….. Can I get a comment on this Al? Jesse?

    One thing stands out: Like Obama she is NOT a true “African-American”. Or, as both Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton complained in late 2007, “I don’t feel that Barack Obama is authentically black. He’s not sufficiently down with the struggle”. (Paraphrase) What they meant was that Obama’s father was not from the “hood”. He wasn’t of the lineage of American slavery either.

    Kamala’s line is somewhat similar. Her Dad came directly from Jamaica. He’s college educated. Her mother is Indian Tamil. So hardly from “the hood”. Not down with the “struggle”. In fact she struggled to lock those who were up as DA. I find this to be both ironic and hilarious given today’s Woke Dem Party.

    Oh, and like Tulsi she comes from a Hindu background:

    Harris was raised in Berkeley, California, with her younger sister, Maya Harris.[14][15] She grew up going to both a black Baptist church and a Hindu temple, while she and her sister visited their mother’s family in Madras (now Chennai), India, on occasion.[16] As a result, Harris writes in her memoir that she understands small amounts of Tamil.[12] Gopalan insisted on giving her daughters names associated with Indian culture to help preserve their Indian identity;[17] she named Kamala “Kamala Devi” for religious reasons, as both words are derived from Hindu mythology.[18] “Kamala” is Sanskrit for “lotus” and an alternative name for the Goddess Lakshmi who is often depicted with the aforementioned flower; whereas “Devi” is Sanskrit for “goddess” and the name of the female deity who protects villages.[18]

    • snagglepuss August 12, 2020 at 11:59 am #

      Harris also lived in Montreal for a time when her mother worked there in the medical field, graduating from Westmount High in 1981.

      OMG! Guess that’s where she picked up her wild socialist ideas, living among the wacky Canadians….lol!

      • cc rider August 12, 2020 at 12:47 pm #

        And in French Canada too! lol…

        I also read that when young Kamalalalala worked for Senator Alan Cranston. Now he was about as far left as one could be throughout his career in criminal….er politics. He was one of the “Keating Five”. Remeber them? Great guys!

        Here’s a little snippet from his Wikipedia:

        “A supporter of world government, Cranston attended the 1945 conference that led to the Dublin Declaration and became president of the World Federalist Association in 1948.[4] He successfully pushed the California legislature to pass the 1949 World Federalist California Resolution, calling on Congress to amend the Constitution to allow U.S. participation in a federal world government…..”

        Well isn’t that special?

    For those who need a slow progression of thought to “get it”, a syllogism:

    BLM believes in reparations
    Looting is reparations (in their mind)
    Therefore BLM supports reparations.

    One leader said that the store were insured so no harm. So BLM would never touch a small store that wasn’t? And he said, they raided top line stores cuz they needed clothes. No stores selling work clothes are ever raided though.

    • GreenAlba August 12, 2020 at 1:12 pm #

      “One leader said that the store were insured so no harm. So BLM would never touch a small store that wasn’t?”

      That’s not even the point. The argument that ‘the stores were insured’ drives me nuts – same when people of no political affiliation and no particular skin colour make false claims on their insurance – as if nobody had to pay for it. And the small store can’t afford for its premiums to increase, even if it does have insurance.

      Once you start looting stores, your credibility as a ‘protester’ is vapourised, IMHO.

        Yup. Saw a cool video of a female martial arts teacher dealing with a Black kid who tried to steal her phone. He pretended to be interested in classes but she didn’t have any posters so she was going to send it to him. He grabbed it from her and she grabbed him, got the phone back and punched him in the face as she let go.

        Everyone was oohing and ahing and yeah, she looked good and her art was for real. A more feminine Ellen type, her blonde hair longer on one side, kind of covering one side of her face, might have been lesbian, maybe bi, you just don’t know. So cool, The current ideal.

        One guy said, this is what’s needed. People taking care of their own shit. As if everyone can do this. She’s a professional. Not everyone is going to devote their lives to weaponless fighting – and as if thugs are always going to be without weapons. They interviewed her and both laughed and said he won’t be back. Oh yes he will be. He was humiliated in front of America. He knows where to find her. I say she’s in danger. He’ll be back with a gun and/or with friends. They’ll wait some night when it gets darker earlier, while she cleans up the dojo. They’ll be right outside as she comes out alone.

Strangely enough New Orleans has had very little in the way of rioting or even protesting this summer. Perhaps it is sufficiently chocolate. You could very well be right regarding the potential for retaliation though. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time something like that happened. And on top of that the thugs can always get their hands on weapons and usually don’t show up without them.

    I mean what does it matter that Harris has few if any real beliefs? Her heart’s in the right place! And she will do what she is told, better than Biden does since he needs a lot of help doing so. She is a fine tool….

    I called her Susan Sludge in honor of Robert Browning who was tormented by his beloved wife’s fervent belief in spiritualism and her devotion to the medium Daniel Douglas Holmes whom Browning named Mr Sludge.

    It makes no difference whether the dems picked Harris, Rice or Daffy Duck ( actually if it was Daffy, I’d vote Democrat in a heartbeat. Imagine president Duck – or would it be president Daffy?). The paths we would take might be different, but the end point would be the same: Collapse of the system.

    We could say this for anyone. So why get yourself riled up about a candidate for any office? The only exception is if a candidate owed no one any favors and had the realization of the trouble we’re in, and had an effective plan to correct our situation ( if that’s possible).

    I don’t know about anyone like that, do you? That fact alone, in a nation of 330 million persons, speaks volumes about the quality of so-called human intelligence. That’s why I’ll just sit back, let the future roll on, and enjoy myself as much as possible.

      The current system is doomed one way or another. Unfortunately this is not going to be a video game. They’re coming to get you Bill. Many of the 330 million believe that the world is still kinda “normal”. This couldn’t be further from the truth, except that, this has always been going on but the scale is now global and essentially universal. I guess I am trying to say that you won’t be able to just sit back and relax. I certainly don’t intend to be a Debbie Downer but feel like you should know.

As I said before, I’m ready to go down fighting. I will try to accommodate the law as much as I can, so I’m talking about the mobs invading us. I only know of 2 people in my complex with guns, nowhere near enough to defend our property. We’ll see. Living under the Chinese curse is well…Interesting.

        Actually there has been a shift in tactics, BLM mobs spreading out to residential neighborhoods and suburbs, branching out, showing up after midnight, pointing lazers and powerful lights into windows, banging drums, shouting slogans, blowing car horns, disturbing the peace.

        The goal seems to be throw a scare into Whitey where he lives. And there’s your white Libs, until recently (last week) down with the struggle, with a BLM sign posted on his front lawn, cowering inside his house, peering thru curtains, worried about the Prius parked out front being vandalized, calling the mayor and Chief of Police, demanding action!!!

    The “republic”, if it ever existed, lies in smoldering ruins. For me, it died on November 22, 1963, but then again, a good argument can be made that it was strangled by Lincoln.

    In any event, the KLEPTOCRATIC, PARASITIC OLIGARCHY which rules this place is intent on sucking out every bit of blood it can before the dead or dying corpse is set on fire.

      On 11/22/63, my college made us take our midterms. I had a chemistry midterm at 1pm I couldn’t get out of. JFK was local for us; he had even personally gotten my mother a state job. Needless to say, many of us from Massachusetts were dazed on 11/22. I got through the first page
      of the exam perfectly, then my mind shut down. I ended up with a 44 on the exam and a midterm grade of F. I decided to drop the class then, and made it up later with a good grade.

      Needless to say, I never forgave my school for forcing us to take the exam. In 53 years since graduation, I’ve never donated a penny to them and I never will. I then instituted my lifelong policy to never donate money to an establishment charity. Instead, I’ve given money only to people who really needed financial help, like the time I read of a family who got burned out of their home and lost a child in the fire. Those kind of donations have a lot of meaning to me.

          That’s the big question isn’t it? The Mafia? The CIA? Castro? The US Military? I’ve read books, every one of them providing evidence that this or that group or person did it. I don’t think we’ll ever know the truth unless there are secret documents that somehow get out.

          I distinctly remember news reports in, I think 1964, that stated telling documents would be stored and released in 2027, but I never heard of this again. I remember thinking at the time I would be 82 when that happened. Anyway, when I read that, I was 19 and being 82 seemed like an eternity away. Now it isn’t very far in the future. I’ve thought of that story from time to time for the past 56 years. Somehow, given the true nature of the world, I doubt the info will ever be made public if it ever existed.

    “They’re here! No, not the pod people from Invasion of the Body Snatchers. We’re not being colonized by giant alien fruit. I’m afraid it is a little more serious than that. People’s minds are being taken over by a much more destructive and less otherworldly force … a force that transforms them overnight into aggressively paranoid, order-following, propaganda-parroting totalitarians….”

      Very insightful! Yes, the new normies or New Normals are the pod people of the latter days maybe. The New Normal philosophy is a pathogen infecting the population and must always be addressed as such to wake people up. In a way the New Normals are sort of like the pod people not in the sense that they don’t have any more emotions and feelings, but that their feelings and emotions have been completely altered. And now just like the pod people, they can individually, and in groups, be utilized as state weapons against the last living humans.

    On a daily basis I now have to monitor my food supply. I’m always on the lookout to buy silver at the lowest premiums – they’re currently at 25-30% over spot, which is ridiculous. Ammo is real hard to get – it’s almost impossible to buy on-line, at least without constant monitoring, the way I used to have to check for good concert tickets at Ticketmaster when an on-sale started.

    We’re getting ripped off all the time. I mentioned before we have ice cream once a week; it’s on Wednesdays. We’re addicted to sugar and have to carefully monitor our intake, hence our strict adherence to dessert on Wednesdays, kind of like monitoring our gambling addiction and not going to the casino too often. It ain’t easy, but doable. That’s the price we have to pay to indulge ourselves a little.

    Anyway, we love Haagen Dasz ice cream. When we buy ice cream, we buy a pint – 16 ounces, Yesterday we went shopping for it. We saw the same pint package at the same price, but upon reading the label, we saw that it contained 14 ounces. If you didn’t look at the contents or didn’t know a pint is 16 ounces, you would never know. This is 12.5% inflation. Of course, the government says we only have 2.5-3% inflation, but that’s a lie.

    What burns me is the dishonesty. Instead of raising the price 12.5%, Pillsbury sneakily downsizes the amount and keeps the same price.

    Sleazy. You know, I’ll kind of be happy that the system will be crashing.

      Is it really possible to buy that shit on line?

      I am 63 years old. I have never lived in any Canadian city with a population less than one million. I have never known any person, friend, relative, co-worker, or aquaintance who owned a gun. Not counting rifles of old stock variety for hunting, and even if people own ed them in the past they got rid of them unless they are avid hunters.

      I don’t say this as a shaming exercise in any way or form. But I wonder if many like you realize how completely surreal the concept is that one might walk in to another persons home for a cocktail, meal or cup or coffee knowing that somewhere within the confines of the home there was a loaded gun.

      Never mind, Sredni Vashtar. I don’t mention this to provoke you or anyone else.

        Such an odd view tell me if you are nervous about people shooting you have you ever considered behaving differently?
        I live in a country with 700 million guns and have never even thought about being shot even after being held up at gunpoint as a teenager working in a flying J truck stop.
        Most people don’t store guns with bullets in them rather modern day firearms have magazines with bullets in them.

        • snagglepuss August 13, 2020 at 9:34 am #

          It isn’t odd at all. But your reaction to it is a reflection of the fact that owning and being exposed to a gun in the household is everyday and normal.
          If you asked a Norwegian, German, Brit, etc they might tell a similar tale to the one I did.
          It’s more or less “cultural” in a country with 700 million guns, I suppose.
          If you never think about being ‘shot’, why have 700 million guns? It certainly isn’t because guns are attractive or make a person more righteous.

        Snag,
        Yes, it gives me the vapors….

        But I should ask…would it make any difference that the gun would be somewhere in the confines of my front pocket? I have spent my life in the “gun culture”, and can honestly say I do not know ONE PERSON who does not own a gun…or ten.

        What really gives me the “vapors” is considering someone who would find this untoward or threatening. I can make a case that Canadian culture, and their manufacturing and export of Eskimo Pies have probably killed more people than my gun…and the one I currently carry is over 120 years old.

      • beantownbill. August 13, 2020 at 12:28 pm #

        Your point has some validity, IMO. But Canada is very different re guns than the US. To better understand why there’s a difference, I suggest watching the documentary movie, Bowling for Columbine, if you haven’t seen it yet. I’m definitely not a Michael Moore fan, but the movie is very interesting.

        Up until recently, Canada did not have a violent culture. Regrettably, America has become very violent. Just this morning I read about the teenager who was attacked in his apartment building, shot 3 times, doused with gasoline and set on fire.

        If you read stuff like this on a regular basis like I do, you might feel the same way firearm carriers do. Guns are extremely dangerous – but mostly only for those ignorant of how to use them. With the proper firearm training, you shouldn’t have any issues. I treat guns with respect, so I’m not afraid of them.

        In America, there’s always a decent chance any individual will encounter violence. IMO, a wise person would carry. I wouldn’t appreciate having gasoline poured over me and set on fire. Times are tough, money is tight and I’d have to buy a whole new set of clothes. Also, as I recently posted, I don’t tan, only burn.

        • snagglepuss August 13, 2020 at 2:09 pm #

          Beantownbill: You burn because you don’t apply sunscreen and expose yourself during peak UV hours.
          On the matter of guns I think Elysianfield makes a good point when he says:
          ‘At the core of your angst is your inability to trust your fellow citizens? Perhaps.’

          I would have to own that. While the USA has the black versus white versus latino/immigration issues, Canada has its own immigration issues which are creating more and more distrust.
          Earlier this week in my province a doctor in his mid thirties was killed by a Sudanese immigrant with a machete and a hammer. The RCMP have advised it was not a random killing. Imagine killing someone with a machete and a hammer. One can barely comprehend the violence of the act. Canada has been opening its doors to people from all over the world in a virtue signalling sort of way due to our asshole prime minister Trudeau. I can’t help but think of what Dmitry Orlov has written about on the subject of “incompatibility”.
          So yes, I think a lack of trust is a reality of the way I feel in many circumstances. But I don’t want to buy a gun, I just want to get as far away from people who I know I will never be compatible with. I don’t want to be around people who think Sharia Law is a good thing, or feel women are inferior to men and should walk 20 steps behind them and beat them regularly. Or would call me a rascist for saying our cultures are not compatible while at the same time having no issue with honour killing their daughter for marrying a man out of her ‘caste’ or religion.
          Maybe the exodus from mega cities has more to do with some of these issues than Covid.

            I burn even with sunscreen. Doesn’t seem to help much. When I was first going out with my wife, that first summer, I was telling her how sensitive my skin was. She really didn’t believe me until one evening I was sitting outside her house on the front steps for a half hour at 7 pm and I got all red. She was very surprised; now she knows better.

            About staying away from people you aren’t compatible with, I do that, too. But I’m talking individuals, not cultures.

    Equality (equal opportunity) does not equal sameness or equal ability and thus does not insure equity or equal results. This is true in school and in life. School should be getting kids ready for this difficult reality. If someone really shines, then maybe public school isn’t the right place for them, unless advanced classes are offered and that doesn’t lead to persecution by other students.

      Why can’t the parents be their own tutors? Same reason why schools have to provide school lunches. Parenst are too lazy and feckless to put a couple and sandaches and an apple in a lunchbox?

      When I was a boy in primary school I perceived four classes of kids’ lunches:

      1. Ordered lunch from the tuck shop (rich kids). These kinds also got soft drinks and chips.
      2. Home lunch sandwiches wrapped in rainbow wax paper.
      3. Home lunch sandwiches wrapped in ordinary wax paper.
      4. Immigrant Italian kid’s lunch sandwich – a hunk of home-sliced bread with salami, no butter or margarine – wrapped in newspaper.

      I was in standard number three.

    The Corona Hoax.

    • JohnAZ August 13, 2020 at 9:52 am #

      Not a hoax. Not the killer though as was originally thought. But really really contagious, and once fought by all ages can be very deleterious. The idea that one person can infect a hundred other just by being in the same closed room with them does scare folks. Some of the latest targets for the spread, aerosolized virus points fingers at ventilation systems. Lots and lots of infrastructure bucks that no one wants to spend. If what some people suggest, just let it go, the impact on hospitals would be catastrophic as a good percentage of folks with the disease need tertiary care, to keep them from dying. Flattening the curve until a vaccine hits was a necessity world wide.

      Flu does disrupt the economy every year to the tune of billions of dollars of lost wages and revenues. Viruses need to be eradicated.

      If the Covid hoax can get the attention of the world long enough to get a generic virus killer or the formula for a generic vaccine, go for it.

      If the very stupid people of the US would do the necessary precautions and quit acting like adolescents, the country could be back at work already. This virus is not going away by itself, it needs help in being put back in the box.

      I wonder if the over 70 hit wasn’t heavily weighted by the stupidity of Cuomo sticking sick patients into nursing homes. The closed environment there was a breeding ground for an aerosolized virus. I wonder what the statistic is for folks over 70 just living in their homes.

      Like me.

        If you think putting virus infected people into nursing homes was not intentional think again.

        I’m on the same page as you. My only disagreement is about eradicating all viruses. Since parts of our DNA are from viruses, we’d be gone, too. But I’m only being technical.

    Did any of you male CFNers ever follow George Soros’s sage advice and wash down a handful of your test…ost..erone “male en…hance..ment” pills with a big Monster caffeine “Energy” drink and then go to the local supermarket?

    “ This spring, for the first time, Angel Manners found purpose and pride at the supermarket where she has worked the past decade. Customers praised her as a hero for putting herself at risk during the pandemic. Bosses boosted her hourly pay by $2. Suddenly, her job was essential.
    Nearly five months in, and it is all gone.
    “In the last month, we’ve lost our hazard pay, and people are quitting every day,” said Manners, 43, who processes vendor deliveries at a Meijer store in northern Kentucky. “Those of us who are left are really stretched thin – working so much harder for $11.50 an hour.”
    Grocer workers across the country say morale is crushingly low as the pandemic wears on with no end in sight. Overwhelmed employees are quitting mid-shift. Those who remain say they are overworked, taking on extra hours, enforcing mask requirements and dealing with hostile customers. Most retailers have done away with hazard pay even as workers remain vulnerable to infection, or worse. Employees who took sick leave at the beginning of the pandemic say they cannot afford to take unpaid time off now, even if they feel unwell.”

      Look at the cashier’s row at any supermarket. Imagine the virus concentration as all the people concentrate in that area. They are a joke. Plastic barriers to protect the cashiers but nothing for the baggers. Telling people to walk in one direction down hallways is a joke. Even more so is their believing that people are following the directions.

      I fault the government, yes all of them, for putting out such a bunch of unproven BS about the virus since the beginning. The scientists are split, quinine works, no it doesn’t, masks work, no they do not, keep apart, open the schools like Georgia. That hallway picture was disgusting. So much damage to the credibility of the response was spawned by NYC and New Jersey. Trump should never have turned it over to Pence who immediately turned it over to the MDs and scientists who do not have a clue what to do.

      In the meantime, we just go merrily along infecting tons of folks and not even knowing why? Look around, the potential causes are right in front of you.

        • JohnAZ August 13, 2020 at 11:29 am #

          My point was that the reactions are a joke. If you do something because you feel that infections are caused by a source, say concentrated volumes of virus caused by concentrated people, then fix it. The cashier aisles should be done away with and one by one customer interface should happen. Everyone should have six foot spacing, or more. Concentrating people close together like that hallway in the Georgia school infects folks by the boatload.

          Anything to break up the line of sight transference and the buildup of viruses in concentrated areas will slow this sucker down.

          Here is a real problem, I believe. The conservatives, who want as little government problem solving as possible, want desperately for this virus to just go away by itself. It is the basis of Trump’s policy of this, that eventually it will just disappear if we wait long enough.

          Long enough was May, June, then August, now the end of the year.

          Every day this crud continues, another nail goes into Trump’s coffin.

          Problem is, no one knows what to do except mitigate.

            My Whole Foods had the one-way arrows on the floor. Who looks at the floor when walking? Even I, who is pro-protection, went the wrong way many times. Now they took off the one-way stickers. The cashiers wear masks, but no gloves or no usage of hand sanitizers. When that occurs, my wife requests that they sanitize, and you can tell they don’t appreciate it.

            What really gets me are the people who wear masks, but don’t cover their noses. Really? Don’t they ever exhale? People can be idiots.

          • Sredni Vashtar August 13, 2020 at 1:27 pm #

            No gloves! What an attitude. As if a grocery store is a surgery room.

            They would have to change gloves with every customer for it to be real.

            If masks actually worked it might matter.

            The proper to way breath is either all in and out the nose or In the nose out the mouth.

            No need to cover the nose as long as you are not expelling waste product out it.

      When I was a kid, the schools all had those powerful industrial flush toilets that would aerosolize the piss and shit and then spray it everywhere when flushed. I had a helluva time stopping up those toilets to create huge headaches for the underpaid black school janitors. I hope that the toilets are fixed so that they don’t spray the kids’ Covid 19 all over the black janitors and the obese black kitchen staff? The teachers should be ok since they have their own private restrooms.

      • Kim August 14, 2020 at 12:54 am #

        Yes. The idea of the lid is that it be closed when one flushes. People don’t know that.

        On the other hand, people talk as if they care concerned with infection yet do nothing to improve their own immune systems.

    Hundreds break Coronavirus rules to go to funeral of stabber.

    One said, Sudanese are very peaceful people – as if he didn’t do it. The British press is desperately trying to blame Britain for the attack. Ethnomasochism on steroids. And the mentality of the Sudanese seems the same as our Somalis: they are poor colonists being oppressed. Despite the fact that they came willingly and are being given free everything. And of course, there’s the glorification of criminals as warrior saints. Only the Blacks do this as Candace Owen said. That might not be strictly true since the Mexicans do some of this – but not usually for such low characters. They laud bigger Criminals, Warlords, making them out to be Robin Hoods.

    British colonial history would seem to indicate the Sudanese are not peaceful people. Read Kipling’s “Fuzzy Wuzzy”. Or the treatment of Christians by Sudanese Muslims, etc.

    @ Sredni Vashtar:

    Really, don’t you have any tolerance whatsoever for people who don’t have your exact opinion on anything? Wearing a mask is based on my
    opinion of the odds for me. Personally, I think you are gambling with your health and possibly your life. Gambling is ok, if that’s what you want to do. But please, don’t make comments on how foolish you think I am. It contributes nothing.

    You are correct on gloves, but any checkout clerk should spritz their hands with sanitizer for each new customer. It only takes about 2 seconds. Making some customers feel safe is a polite thing to do.

    My wife and I both decided on our own to pursue the same course. Do you know why? Because we care for each other and we’ll do whatever we can to insure we stay healthy.

    • Sredni Vashtar August 13, 2020 at 3:08 pm #

      Customers there should be forced to pay a spritz tax based on the time taken and of course, the spritz.

      You look on each as disease vectors?

      • beantownbill. August 13, 2020 at 4:14 pm #

        I look at it this way: A spritz takes 2-3 seconds, probably around 20 times an hour, if that. That’s 1 minute out of each hour, about 1.6% of the clerk’s time. At a salary of around $15 per hour for say 12 hours per day, that cost is roughly $2 per day, or $60 per month. If, by spritzing, only 1 customer per month is saved from the virus, and that customer spends $75 per week at the store, and has to quarantine for 15 days, that ends up as a saving to the store of $120 for that month, plus no hit to their reputation. It’s a win for the store, and a win for every customer except for that unlucky one.

        Sorry, Sredni, this is just the way I think. I believe Q would appreciate that.

        • Sredni Vashtar August 13, 2020 at 5:59 pm #

          Nice work. Maybe we could set up a spray system for each customer as they walk in too. Employees as well. Kind of like a car wash but more high tech.
