OK, crybabies. I mean, how dare this person not walk in lockstep with us and then be given a platform to speak. Christ, what a bunch of babies.
This makes sense. Of course she probably won’t survive the year. Also, where are the names of the people involved in the trafficking? Why doesn’t the media care about that?
This is bullshit. It’s none of the government’s business until the people default.

Enticing bears is generally a bad idea.
Well, I mean, not the big hairy gay kind, if you are into that.
Everyone has the right to bear arms, after all — if that’s how they want to be cuddled.
“The best way of dealing with unwanted bears is to ask them if they have a few minutes to talk about their lord and savior Jesus christ.”
Sure you did, buddy. This is exactly the opposite of what Christ taught you. – look the US cannot afford a bling gap with the Russian patriarch
Exactly! How can you show you are in God’s good graces unless you have more bling than the ungodly and the pretenders, huh?

Go patriarchy and dudes that want idiot women to think killing their offspring is what makes them free all so they can bang these women easier. Note that the women always acting the craziest about killing their own offspring tend to be the ones I wouldn’t touch with Tres’ dick…
This stuff isn’t new at med school induction day (the “white coat ceremony is a more recent trend, however, we never had that). When I started medical school in the early 80s, a bunch of students passed out an “alternate” version of the Hippocratic Oath, which we were all to read in unison as part of the ceremony. When the reading started, the alternate gang started shouting their version. I think it had something to do with abortion then, too.

Unless there were physical obstructions, a little paint isn’t going to stop drag racers from racing.
Wasn’t doing much for normal traffic either.
Minimum wage contract workers
At least one local neighborhood used street painting to stop people from not seeing the curbs. I recall at least one other neighborhood where the residents did put in obstructions after several traffic deaths, but can’t find the story now.
The city has all sorts of fun things like that. I hit a pothole badly once, and got a flat tire. I had heard the city had a way you could get reimbursed for road damage from a pothole. They do on this page there’s a link to the form that you’ll need to fill out. They just need a bit of information:
Mexican topes are (mostly?) created by citizens for similar reasons.
The US is becoming more like Mexico than the other way around.
Exactly. You want to stop drag racing? Put in speed bumps.
oh let the kids have their fun
Yeah — it is Hollister, for God’s sake. Promise over the weekend not to do enforcement on a stretch of CA-25 just south or CA-156 (if you can keep the Gilroy traffic more towards 152), repave if needed and make it a community event. “Street Race Saturdays!” or something. It’d be fun and you could pull traffic down from the Gilroy outlet malls on the weekend evenings.
For context on that, Gilroy is the southern tip of the “Bay Area” really, still half farm area. Hollister is solidly still in “farms and orchards” zone — good amounts of traffic on CA-152 (just north of Hollister, goes through Gilroy) because it is one of two choke points from I-5 (Central Valley) over to US-101 (Bay Area corridor)) and CA-156 (spur off of 152, cuts over to Monterey, so farm trucks and people cutting to that stretch of the coast, but less traffic than 152).
So no offense — but Hollister hasn’t really got a lot else going on from what I can tell. So might as well have some fun with this.
All would be well until the first lawsuit after someone gets killed.
Hollister is the gateway to the Pinnacles and the setting for The Wild One starring Marlon Brando.
An interesting thing about the city of Hollister is that those t-shirts that were popular a few years ago, the “Hollister” surf shirts, were supposedly about a fictional California town. The creators never even bothered to find out there was actually a real place with the name. I think the real Hollister tried to sue at first, but eventually gave up, because the publicity was good for tourism (though no doubt led to the arrival of some pretty confused tourists looking for the ocean in a valley farm town).
Fuck speed bumps.
I hate them too. But I’m speaking of practical solutions to a specific problem, not some half-baked shit like what the city did.
When my parents moved into their neighborhood. There was one main street going through the center. When a busy street nearby was having construction done, people cut through the neighborhood. They put in three stop signs to slow people down. They promised to remove them after the construction, they didn’t. The people who live on the main road through the neighborhood liked them.
The next time there was construction, people cut through despite the stop signs. People complained they went too fast between the stop signs. They installed speed “humps”. They are awful. My dad said on the neighborhood forum people were cheering people who damaged their car on them.
i.e. people who like speed bumps are evil.
Also, ratchet only goes one way.
Also, my dad wrote a letter the HOA, he said that if it was like that when he moved there he would never have moved there. He called them a bunch of busybodies who need hobbies other than pissing people off, and included something to the effect of “I guess you’re all a bunch of Biden voters” He can’t wait to leave.
When I was looking for the latest house, I rejected one in a neighborhood that was full of speed bumps. Instead I found a house on a dead end street so I only have to deal with local speeders.
My parents always picked houses on a dead end when we were kids. Then my wife and I did the same when we had kids. I highly recommend it, kids or not.
How about creating a place where people can drag race legally and safely ?
The Los Angeles River is waiting for approval.
Westheimer is kind of busy for that.
My hometown started installing speed bumps after a buddy of mine drove into someone’s living room.
They should have put up a drag race free zone sign. That would stop them.
Heh… good one. I legitimately chuckled.
“This certainly seems newsworthy. Strange how it wasn’t mentioned at CNN, NBC, or ABC.”
The swamp exists. It is a corrupt entity that protects the members of the political class that have sold out or are beholden to it. After Obama weaponized it during his admin, this corruptocracy’s top priority has been to legalize the evil of the globalist movement and the anti-American movement known as progressivism.
I suspect the swamp was always weaponized, not just by Obama. In fact, a lot of protections in the Constitution are meant to protect us from that stuff. That tells me it’s as old as government itself.
“This certainly seems newsworthy. Strange how it wasn’t mentioned at CNN, NBC, or ABC.”
If all you are watching or reading is what basically passes for legacy media, you are not looking for information, but to have your opinions assigned to you. Being a progressive means that you are willing to actively ignore reality in favor for whatever narrative they told you to believe in.
Scott Adams has a list of hoaxes from the last 5 years, and there are still people out there believing them despite the fact that they have clearly been shown to be hoaxes….
You can bring a horse to water, but the making it drink part is the difficulty… These people would rather die than admit they were played and believe idiotic shit.
Come on man!
That’s a topic that just keeps giving…
If would be doctors pull that sort of shit, what exactly are they going to do professionally later? Refuse to treat patients that don’t conform to their beliefs? Give substandard care? Kill them? All of them should be dismissed from the program.
bigots do not deserve care. But they should pay for what they don;t get anyway. Serves em right
Ah, i see you’re trying to lay the groundwork for a high value skills visa. Good luck!
They’re already laying the groundwork for that. Keep an eye out for the term “medical justice.” It’s basically denying/delaying treatment for the “privileged” and prioritizing treatment for “traditionally underserved” populations while ignoring severity of the patient’s condition and the benefits of early intervention.
Tonio, what would you say is the overlap between the medical justice crowd and those that believe government should be in complete charge of healthcare (and especially access to it)?
👆 It’s going to take societal disaster to undo this cultural shift. These future doctors believe they’re morally right and mentally superior. Unraveling that state of mind is going to take something severe.
Last time, some of the fuckers needed to be hanged.

Reagan’s “I hope you are all Republicans.” was a joke. Medical ethics has eroded to where it is no longer a joke.
All of them should be dismissed from the program.
But that’s the point of the program. Medical schools have been thoroughly skin suited and are indoctrination camps now.
The MCAT (medical school admissions exam) used to consist of three sections divided into 5 areas: biology, physics, physical chemistry, organic chemistry, and verbal reasoning. Several years ago, a new section was added that can only be described as adherence to progressive ideals. Medical schools are now openly screening applicants for progressive goodthink.
Based on my experience?
They absolutely will refuse to treat you if you do not hold right think.

“…where are the names of the people involved in the trafficking?”
During all the time she was missing, how did she not distribute the list to friends and family as an insurance policy, or as a dead man’s switch, to use as leverage against imprisonment and being suicided?
I suppose her life could’ve been threatened. Not sure I would choose 20 years in prison over the risk of death, especially at her age.
Raping yourself, repeatedly, as part of your suicide attempt that ends with you drinking gallons of Drano, can have that effect on people…
Amazing how the crimes she and Epstein committed are so heinous, yet there are exactly zero other charges participants. No staffers, no one involved in the running the pedo flights, nada.
The cops and courts have her insurance policy. It was sealed to “protect the victims”. Never mind that many of those victims have gone public already.
Like Epstein’s insurance policy. The cops found it, and because their search warrant was unique in the history of search warrants and prohibited them from actually collecting evidence, they just left it and when they came back, why, looks there, it “disappeared”.
Yeah, I don’t get Epstein’s situation either. I guess that duo just wasn’t terribly bright. Why else would one record such damaging activities of the powerful if not to use as leverage for personal protection?
“The FBI and IRS’ criminal division are among the agencies who have been involved in moving the investigations, and there have also been discussions over whether his past drug abuse could weaken their case, CNN reported.
Hunter could argue that he wasn’t aware of his actions because he was high on drugs.”
Since when is that an excuse?
Principals, not principles.
I don’t know, but the excuse making started with letting off most members of the criminal Obama administration, where the bar was moved from high to an inch off the ground.
Yeah… I get that they have cover from the propaganda machine, but based just on what is public knowledge, high ranking officials committed serious felonies. Heck, Sally Yates took notes in which President Obama (and Biden) directed the FBI to go frame the incoming national security advisor for a crime.
And some people still pretend that never happened while $100K in facebook memes – crappy ones, at it – is hung on to as the last piece of not debunked evidence that allows them to claim the orange guy is a KGB agent/Russian Manchurian candidate…
These people are living in their own reality. one where facts are not as important as what they feel and want to believe.
Interesting side story…. NYT and WaPo got pulitzer prizes for covering Russiagate.
Now that we know it was a hoax to a metaphysical certainty, Trump called on the pulitzer committee to revoke the prizes.
To their credit, the committee actually commissioned a review of the evidence.
They found no evidence that any statements in any of the submitted articles or headlines were in doubt.
Of course they did…
The Pulitzer committee is the paragon of ethical media practice, just ask Walter Durante.
Why am I unsurprised that the FBI and IRS actually have divisions devoted to criminal activity?
You mean committing their own criminal activity?
Well, what else? It’s not like they can solve crimes they didn’t instigate.
“While we support the rights of freedom of speech and religion, an anti-choice speaker as a representative of the University of Michigan undermines the University’s position on abortion and supports the non-universal, theology-rooted platform to restrict abortion access, an essential part of medical care,” the petition reads.
1) You do not.
2) Interesting false argument.
The university has a position on abortion?

Only speakers who espouse our non-universal platform are free to exercise their free speech rights here.

This Era really is doing a fine job of producing 1984-esque doublethink and doublespeak in actual conversation.

Then he goes to a Mexican neighborhood and asks a bunch of actual Mexicans. They all say he looks fine.

Did we already do this one?
British couple has 12 year old kid.. they come home to find him unconscious. He is on life support. Doctors say there is no hope and want to pull the plug.
Parents say they have hope. They want him to have a chance.
Court says, nah, put the kid down.
I have to wonder how much socialized medicine changes the calculus here.
It’s the Liverpool Pathway all over again.
This happens repeatedly. Last two times the news reached us it was infants.
Socialized healthcare is evil.
Do I recall correctly that in past cases, the parents are even prevented from taking their child out of the country for treatment? If so, England has gone full totalitarian.
You are remembering correctly. Medical facilities in other countries were offering treatment at no cost to the NHS with charitable funding of transportation, and the British government went “Yeah, no, kid’s gotta die.”
The message that should have been delivered was “My kid dies, you die.”
(Note for future reference: Next time the Brits are being blitzed, don’t bother bailing them out again.)
It wasn’t fair to make the child suffer. I believe that was their rationalization.
Which makes no sense if the brain death diagnosis is correct
Those lace-up espadrilles on whomever that is demonstrate quite the judicial reverence.

They just need some balm. Clear it right up.
Puts a whole new twist into the argument that the claim that customer is always right, isn’t so…
I believe Taco Bell should be happy they are only asking for $1M, I would award much more were I on the jury. Of course my judgment is likely skewed by suffering a severe burn.
Taco Bell usually burns coming out.

“Raising taxes on e-cigarettes by just $1 could lead to more youngsters in their early 20s taking up smoking, a new study finds.
Researchers at Georgia State University, in Atlanta, monitored 38,000 youngsters and found raising the price of e-cigarettes triggered a rise in the number smoking by 3.7 percent once the increase was implemented.
They said the results showed taxes should be raised on both cigarettes and e-cigarettes at the same time to avoid youngsters switching to ‘more lethal’ cigarettes. They also pointed out the early 20s is a period when many switch from ‘experimental’ to ‘daily’ nicotine use.”
How about not taxing either of them?
“Nein. Ve must control ze behaviour of ze jungen.”
They really are obsessed with vaping… and for all the wrong reasons.
Vaping reduces the use of cigarettes, which reduces the cigarette “settlement” revenue which goes to the government.
Amazing how easily they slid over to “nicotine use” is evil. Why, exactly?
Well… tobacco was funding a billion dollar anti smoking fund in every state. With smoking on the decline, they needed someone to pay up and a boogie man to point to.
This is why they come so hard after non-tobacco “corporations” who make vapes. It breaks the nexus that keeps the cash flowing.
One hand washes the other.
Makes me think of the airlines and skoal. You’re not allowed to dip on an airplane, or most places cigarette smoking is banned. I guess they are worried about second hand spit.
You may thing something is stupide, gross, or anything else. But how exactly is that person harming you? PIsses me off so much
I have pointed this out before, and more an more people are catching on…
Certainly if you go for a degree in anything ending in “studies”.
I’ve heard Kari Lake…and someone else I cannot think of, maybe Larry Sharpe, propose letting high schoolers use their last two years attending a trade school.
The gifted track in my district already includes 2 years of community college. They get their associates degree and their high school degree at the same time.
It seems like a similar track with plumbing, electrical, welding, machining, etc. Would be possible.
One of the school districts here has been doing that for quite a while. Back when I was in high school (mid 90’s), it was considered the path for underachievers. since it wasn’t considered a path for college. I wonder if that’s changed in recent years.
We’re homeschooling, but the plan is to have them do community college for when they are 17/18. Of course that’s not set in stone and could change.
XY#1 did that and graduated high school with a bunch of college credits and all the welding certificates that were available.
XX#1 did it and got her EMT-A done and got hired as a full-time EMT when she turned 18. She’s 19 now and a full-time fireman.
XX#2 is just doing it for regular classes – may go as far as the Associates in her Sr. year. Not doing the vocational track there but is doing private flying lessons separately.
It ain’t bragging if it’s true! Be proud!
A White House official said Monday night that “no decision has been made” about whether to extend it again. The official said Biden will make a decision before Aug. 31.
It’ll be extended.
That is an easy choice. It is other people’s money. What does he care if bond holders are depending on that income?
Obama told GM’s secured debt holders to take their 30 billion dollars and shove it, with absolutely no legal authority to do so. Biden was standing right next to him as he stole 30 billion dollars and watched him get away either it. This is but one “hold my beer” moment by this administration.

Prolly half Irish. Cause otherwise you would also have seen a complaint about the missing booze.
Where IS my Murphy’s, now you’ve mentioned it?

Looks like a normal breakfast to me.
We went to Ireland and they kept talking about the “big Irish breakfast”.
It was not terribly big, and not any different from what we eat in the US.
I think the surprise comes from northern Europe, where they eat a lot of light meals consisting of bread and a little cheese.
No black and white puddings? And Irish bangers are different than classic American breakfast links.
The thing that I found different was the pepper.
That accounts for the flavor of their sausage too.
Their black ground pepper is a different type of pepper than ours, and it alters the flavor of everything.
I didn’t care for it as much, but that is likely due to familiarity.
Surprisingly not terrible. Took a couple bold guesses, one paid off — the other cost a guess. C’est la vie.

I never got why you Americans have those huge engines in your cars but you speed limits seem very low
Government abuse of power…
You assume we obey those speed limits. The police rarely even bother drivers until they are at least 10 mph over the limit.
If I come to the US and a cop pulls me over what is the standard bribe level?
You do not bribe the cops directly at time of intercept. That just makes them angry because they like to pretend they’re the good guys.
Yeah, you pay your bribe in court…
Exactly. Most places, you hire the right local attorney and the ticket either dissapears or transforms into a civil penalty (rather than a moving violation)
I go to court about once ever 10-15 years and contest a $300 ticket to make the jurisdiction pay $5k in court costs to make my point before I pay it. You would be surprised how many cops when they know you will cost the system money (since you won’t even plead down for convenience) simply let you go without a ticket. This is how I became sure these tickets are not given to encourage safety, but are a racket for these jurisdictions to make easy bank from people that just settle.
Yup, you hire a local attorney who knows the prosecutor and you get a fine with no points on your license, because the towns are more interested in collecting revenue than in enforcing motor vehicle violations.
Meh, just roll the dice and hope the cop doesn’t appear in court.
I fight every ticket. I have some success in it as well. I have yet to pay a laser based ticket in TX. Laser is inadmissible as evidence in TX and likely never will be in TX due to a lazy cop in a DUI case that went to the TX Supreme Court (State of TX vs. Hill) where they determined laser was a novel speed device different from radar and needed a gatekeeper hearing to determine effectiveness. Long and short of it, traffic court is a hobby of mine, although they tend not to write me anymore.
We don’t use the term bribes in America. It’s called donations instead and keeps everything at an arms length.
Lowest level is donating to the local Fraternal Order of Police or whatever they call it. That gets you a sticker for your car so the cop knows you’ve paid.
Next level is donating to the sheriff’s reelection campaign. That gets you a name drop and a cell phone to call.
Where you really want to be is donating to the state reps or local reps for large city-states. That’ll get your record expunged and the cop reassigned to meter maid status.
$0. Offering money usually just results in additional charges. Instead the bribe is paid directly through “court costs” and “fees”. The ticket may be for as low as $25, but the costs and fees will bump that up to ~$200 depending on the locality.
My wife just got a camera speeding ticket in Ft Collins. $40, no cop interaction, no crazy fees.
Pissed her off, but getting pulled over and then spending $200 would have been worse.
In quite a few localities, the admissibility of the automatic camera tickets is still up in the air. So they keep the total cost down on them just to get more people to waive and pay instead of fighting them.
Exactly. I figured it was contestable. But she was guilty as hell, so, meh, just $40.
Yep, it’s just bidness. The school bus cameras are quite lucrative for them. No points on the license and $300 easy money,
Usually if you contest it and lose, you get punished with points. If you just pay it, they don’t give you points.
It’s a scam.
In WA, camera tickets are treated as non-moving violations, but the ticket amounts are the same as if it was written the old fashioned way. I think it’s $324 for a red light ticket. Your success in court (or your lawyer’s) depends on which court you find yourself in. Municipal- Not so bad. District- Good luck.
10 over is slow in Pennsylvania.
I though PA was one of the “1 mph over the limit will get you a ticket” states.
Perhaps, but the last time I visited I was doing 5 over in the right lane. Every PA license plate was passing me. Even their slow traffic was passing me at 5-10 faster.
Only State Troopers get radar guns. They don’t usually even blink unless you’re well over 10+ posted speed.
I think by statute, they can’t even pull you over unless you’re 5+ over. Been a long time since I looked though.
How high are speed limits there? I-95 transitions from 65 to 70 at my exit. The nearest major road is 45-55 depending which way I go. In the 23 miles to my mother’s house, all but about 3 are 45+. If only we could keep the pleasure cyclists off our country roads …
Where is there?
in Romania it is 80 mph highway, 60-65 mph on non highway roads outside cities/villages and 32-38 mph inside settlements
So it is about 10 over what is posted here.
My car does best in the 45-55 range. Efficiency drops at higher speeds and I can feel the impact on handling.
mph, or kph?
mph – Meters per Hour.
The EU speed limits are brutal.
mph obviously otherwise it would be very low
It’s about the same here in Texas.
We like to get to said speed limit in as little time as possible.
True. Some people feel if their car can go 0-60 in 4 seconds that is the acceleration they need to use in every situation.

They didn’t specify “in a straight line”.
Chicks like dudes with stamina.
Have you seen the videos of the guy who tries to cross a country in a straight line? I thnk he gives himself 25 meters of wiggle room. He has tried Scotland, Wales, and Norway, I think. Multiple tries on Wales, IIRC. I don’t think he has succeeded yet.
The police showed up at his house. They agreed to not arrest him if he edited out of his video the part where he crossed high fences to cross a train track. I saw the video before the edit, it was pretty crazy.
Apparently Norway was a success.

The Biden administration is considering wiping out hundreds of billions of dollars in student debt. Its announcement could come as soon as next month.
Why would the federal government relieve a large portion of the loans it gave out?
These are some of the main reasons, according to experts.
1. A growing sense the system is broken
2. Concern that much debt won’t be repaid anyway
3. Midterms are looming
The real reason they are acting as if they will do this is #3….

Also unmentioned — the fun with the IRS. Loan forgiveness counts as income, kiddies….
Immediate income too. Not deferred over twenty years and then written off.
Also unmentioned — the fun with the IRS. Loan forgiveness counts as income, kiddies….
This has been waived for student loan debt forgiveness as part of one of the Covid relief bills.
The Dems didn’t have the juice to get student loan debt forgiveness through Congress, so they laid the groundwork instead for executive action.

What are you gonna do, call the cops? I’m also sure nobody has “standing” to sue over this.
I think it could be reasonable to explore the idea that one could opt to have their loans forgiven, but then forego future SSA payments (stop laughing) or something along those lines.
It’s a humongous gift to higher ed.
They’re trying to prop up that market by making it seem that no matter how bad an investment it is, the feds will loan money to you and then forgive it.
My idea above plus claw back from the schools.
LOL. They won’t punish the schools unless they’re not conforming to the proggie agenda (aka for profit vocational schools).
They need their indoctrinators.
Ambitious plans for house near Heugh Reservoir turned down
CONTROVERSIAL plans for a new house on land near the Heugh Reservoir has been rejected by East Lothian Council.
Geddes Consulting – on behalf of Tom Tait, retiring farmer of nearby Wamphray Farm – was requesting permission for a four-bedroom home to be built on a field to the east of the decommissioned water tank and west of Heugh Steadings.
The plans were initially withdrawn in September last year, as it was considered that construction of the house would contravene council policy on rural housing.

Squab? Pigeons are a nuisance
Squib? Fire hazard

Squaw is now the Sq word.
Interior Department Moves Toward Final Steps to Remove “Sq___” from Federal Lands
What’s wrong with the letters “s” and “q”? ///jk
By this standard the woketards will have to rename everything in the country.
Seriously… How did Squaw become offensive? Was it always offensive? I mean, it was used as if they didn’t think it was offensive in my childhood and for at least a couple of decades before.
I thought it was just a word from one of the native languages for wife. Or maybe woman.
They claim it has been. Consulting online dictionaries confirms that, but those are recent and going woke anyway.
Our county already renamed Squaw Creek.
I noticed they were capitalizing “Indigenous” — I’ve seen that other places, too.
Maryland designates SR-210 Piscataway Highway
The woke were offended by the name Indian Head Highway due to false etymology that head referring to severed heads instead of a head of land. Amusingly the bill only designated the route Piscataway Highway. It did not rename it.
I’m convinced it never was. Convinced mostly by all the effort they are putting into it.
The point from these people is NEVER the truth. The point is reinforcing that THEY get to define whatever they want to as “racist”. Period. Never agree. Never, never, never. It’s all a lie. If you ever hear something or some event or action called “racist”, you can be convinced that it isn’t.

Burn them at the stake.
I hope that kid does that to them eventually as payback.
The kid wearing pink, who doesn’t know what the fuck is going on, really likes blue?
My son and all his friends got in to pink in the 5th grade. They picked pnk for our official team jersies for our robotics team. Not just any pink. Hot, neon pink.
They were not being gay, or ironic, or closeted females. It was just a fashion thing.. maybe being a little transgressive.
Any way, they voted and now I am stuck still wearing the neon pink shirt to all of the teams events. Which is fine… Useful actually, since our kids really stand out.
But my daughter is running track now. So on some days I have to hustle straight from robotics at the elementary school to go to some ghetto high school where she is running in a track meet…. Usually 4-8 schools.
So in walks dad, to a stadium with a few hundred kids and a few hundred parents. He is one of a handful of white parents, and he is wearing hot pink.
Our class colors (’55) in high school were pink and grey.
70 years later the pink has faded and the survivors are sort of blotchy grey.
Couldn’t you change your shirt?

Oh, look, antifa has poked the bear now.
Don’t fuck with real biker gangs
This is going to be worth it…
Their protectors will happily use it to go after the 1MCs.
Yeah, they got what they came for. Provoke and frame the response is their MO.
It will work until somebody decides to starts disappearing them.
Looked like it wasn’t the biker gang… It was the women. They kinda dragged everyone into a physical confrontation. On the antifa side there were two guys made out of pudding that were playing the role of women.
That being said : Dude with bear spray canister is lucky he didn’t get that taken away and shoved up his nethers.

LET THEM EAT CAKE!
GOOOOOOOOD MORNING GLIBS!
Has anyone tried rabbit meat? A friend and I are always joking (or half joking) about get rich quick schemes. This weekend he said we should raise rabbits. But maybe during the Great Reset that might not be a bad idea, if people are looking for meat and aren’t interested in eating crickets.
Has anyone tried rabbit meat – yes. paired great with some Burgundy pinot noir
Kinda sad how often I think in movie references.
I haven’t, but I’m interested. I do know that you cannot survive on rabbit meat alone. Not enough fat.
Rabbit is freaking delicious. Farmed rabbit is very mild, and tasted like a cross between chicken and pork.
I had New Zealand Whites as a kid. Some were well over 10 lbs, claws that scratched. We ate them.
Way better than Snowshoe hares grown wild in MN, feeding on tree bark
Years ago. Tastes like chicken (of course).
My neighbor across the road raises them in hutches. He got alpha-gal from a tick bite so the rabbits give him a meat source besides poultry.
Can’t say much about it other than it’s a lot more work than raising free range pastured animals. Preferred dispatch method is dislocation using something like a broom stick. My wife is considering raising rabbits to feed to the dogs, but you would spend a fraction of the money and time raising a couple hogs instead for more meat than you would get from an expansive hutch system.
I’ve only had rabbit in a stew which was good.
“Has anyone tried rabbit meat? ”
Yes, it’s good. Brown up some rabbit in olive oil, remove, brown up some mushrooms, add chopped garlic, add back rabbit, add parsley, bay leaf, white wine, and simmer on very low heat until it’s falling off the bone.
My variant of that is basically a cassoulet: Brown some sausage, brown rabbit quarters in the rendered fat, drain, deglaze the pan, re-add the meats and some white beans and cook on low until the beans are ready.
Next time you’re in Quebec City, try: https://lapinsaute.com/
And while I have never actually tried this, the backstraps look like they would make the most amazing deep fried “tenders.” Look at a youtube video for the trick of removing them from the vertebrae intact.
It is similar to chicken.. but tougher, leaner and a little gamey.
Would not prefer to chicken.
Rabbit braised in a white wine sauce with kidney beans (onions & garlic too), served over mashed potatoes is a delicacy.
Make sure you buy it with the head still attached. Otherwise you might be eating cat.
more people should be asking why not
“Pretty sure rootkits just disable it out of pity.”
Back when Linux was Slackware and the install was a big stack of 1.44 floppies. I used an old PC to make an email gateway, to protect our internal corporate server from direct access. It worked great for a while, and I put our department on a test exchange server behind it. Within days it was being used to rout hacks from Israel. Dammit.
So I wipe and start again. I have it on our internal network, but not on the internet. I am configuring security from my desktop using telnet.
Step one, change the default access to DENY ALL..
Telnet window closes.
Dammit. (Followed by the walk of shame to the server room to find a monitor and keyboard to hook back up to the old PC)
Well, you wanted it secure
Stopped by a Forest Service ranger station yesterday to pick up a recreation pass. Noticed that Kamala’s picture is hanging in place of where the presidential photo used to go. There wasn’t room to add another frame above it so Biden’s is off to the side and slightly higher. Embarrassing really to look at it and see how hamhanded it is.
Just give it some more time until we see the usual middle eastern size pictures of leaders.
I don’t understand why they would hang “Wanted” posters in a forest ranger’s hut.
I never got why you Americans have those huge engines in your cars but you speed limits seem very low

“We’re not going to be in a recession, in my view,” Biden said, in response to questions about the upcoming gross domestic product number for the next quarter. …
Biden pointed to the low employment rate and people continuing to invest to make his case that the economy is still strong.
“My hope is that we go from this rapid growth into a steady growth,” he said. “So we’ll see some coming down but I don’t think we’re going to, God willing, I don’t think we’re going to see a recession.”
Is he setting up God as the Fall Guy when a recession is finally proclaimed?
Anyone but them and their idiot ways…
On Tuesday, EU energy ministers agreed to a voluntary target to reduce gas usage by 15% between August and March 2023. That reduction is measured against each country’s average gas consumption during the same months over the previous five years.
The EU Commission first unveiled the 15% target in its “Save Gas for a Safe Winter” plan last week, which included a proposal for a new law that, if passed, would give it the power to force states to meet mandatory reduction targets in exceptional circumstances.
But objections from some countries over the past few days have pushed the bloc to make key concessions, taking into account their varying levels of dependency on gas and levels of storage.
The EU will now exempt countries that are not interconnected to other members’ gas networks from the 15% mandatory demand reduction target, as “they would not be able to free up significant volumes of pipeline gas to the benefit of other member states,” the EU Council, the bloc’s political union, said in a press release.
The Council also detailed a number of scenarios that would allow for the relaxation of the reduction target, including where states overshoot their gas storage targets or are particularly reliant on gas to power critical industries.

They left her at the same school where they spent a year defaming and shaming her.
Let’s not pretend that this ends with her victorious. She faces a hostile student body and faculty , and an administration hell bent on finding an excuse to fire her.
Bingo. And services as a lesson to anybody who dares dissent.
However, she also has a good start on a wrongful termination lawsuit.
It seems like if she could tag any of those opinions people have formed as to her being racist and homophobic to statements from the administration she has a defamation case too.
When Pie’s Popeyes opens up, I hope he reports on how it was localized. I assume they’ll have traditional Romanian fried-chicken sides and not red beans & rice.
A story I was told but did not witness first hand when I was waiting tables in Houston in the ’90s:
Ninfa’s (a Houston TexMex chain) opened a location in newly-accessible Berlin. They worked through a local intermediary, with the home office supplying recipes and letting the locals find the ingredients and staff. Before opening, they travelled to the new location and discovered that the tortillas were being rolled into squares.
Well, True Blood and those stupid Anne Rice books happened in Louisiana, so it’s basically a cultural exchange program.
I assume they’ll have traditional Romanian fried-chicken sides and not red beans & rice.
What’s the point of Popeye’s in Romania then?
Germans gonna german.
there are no traditional romanian fried-chicken sides.
No fine Chianti and Fava beans?
So when you’re having a picnic, what do you pack with the chicken?

Rule by anecdotal sob story
Elizabeth stood up to get some lunch. That’s when she felt something “shift” in her uterus, down low, and then “this burst of water just falls out of my body. And I screamed because that’s when I knew something wrong was happening.”
Her waters had broken, launching her into what she calls a “dystopian nightmare” of “physical, emotional and mental anguish.” She places the blame for the ensuing medical trauma on the Republican legislators who passed the state’s anti-abortion law, on Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, who signed it, and on the inflamed political rhetoric, which Elizabeth says only sees abortion “as one thing, a black-and-white issue, when abortion has all of these gray areas.”
The crisis the Wellers endured is emblematic of the vast and perhaps unintended medical impacts of the criminalization of abortion in Republican-led states. The new abortion bans — or the old laws being resurrected in a post-Roe world — are rigidly written and untested in the courts. Many offer no exemptions for rape, incest or fetal anomolies.
But the most confusing development involves the exemptions that exist for the woman’s life or health, or because of a “medical emergency.” These terms are left vague or undefined.
The result has been disarray and confusion for doctors and hospitals in multiple states, and risky delays and complications for patients facing obstetrical conditions such as ectopic pregnancies, incomplete miscarriages, placental problems, and premature rupture of membanes.
“It’s terrible,” says Dr. Alan Peaceman, a professor of maternal-fetal medicine at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine. “The care providers are treading on eggshells. They don’t want to get sucked into a legal morass. And so they don’t even know what the rules are.”
Why do I assume this is a bunch of melodramatic posturing?
Sounds like a real issue, though it isn’t an actual argument against the law per se. They just need stronger standards so the doctors know what they can and can’t do in a given situation.
From what I have seen, a fair amount of it is intentional hyperventilating. I couldn’t say how clear Texas law is, but what I have seen in Arizona is the pro-choicers are intentionally misrepresenting the state of the law to make it sound more strict than it is. The OBs, of course, being good members of the managerial caste, are eagerly playing along. It doesn’t help that some Repubs are piling on, apparently oblivious that they are courting a backlash.
Could be, but it didn’t sound like hyperventilating in this particular case, which was pretty rough on a patient already going through a terrible situation. Clarity is definitely needed. Whatever NPR’s motivation, the article does point out a real problem that needs to be addressed.
A lot of ‘honest US citizens’ think Joe Biden is one of the best presidents in the country right now
That is funny.
Actually. Kinda funny like Donald Sutherland in The Invasion of the Body Snatchers.
And yet they still get pissed about the NPC meme…
I think he’s one of the best presidents in the country right now.
Unless I missed a visit by another president, isn’t Joe the only president in the country right now? I guess you could include fan club presidents and the like. But that would put Joe in the bottom tier.
It’s kinda like when I joke and tell my only son that he’s my favorite son.
“You’re also the least favorite.”
I used to award “points” to my son, posted on the refrig. Took him quite awhile until he realized they were not redeemable for goods or services.
Teenagers are teenagers
Good to see I’m not the only one that saw that awkward phrasing. To say he’s “one of the best” when there’s only one is a very nice backhanded compliment.
Later on, Elizabeth said she realized that her anger at Methodist was misplaced. “It wasn’t that the Methodist Hospital was refusing to perform a service to me simply because they didn’t want to, it was because Texas law … put them in a position to where they were intimidated to not perform this procedure.”
Is that how she got pregnant?
Elizabeth has been sharing her story, and has found that whatever the political affiliation of the listener, they all agree her experience was horrible.
Now she wants those sentiments translated into action.
“We live in a culture that advocates small government and yet we are allowing states, we are allowing our Texas state government to dictate what women do with their own bodies and to dictate what they think is best, what medical procedures they think is best for them to get.”
And this is why we need unfettered, unquestioned abortion on demand.
We live in a culture that advocates small government
Perhaps a subculture, not the dominant culture.

A gunman who roamed for hours through a sleeping Vancouver suburb shot four people early Monday, two of them fatally, as he opened fire at a casino, a center for the homeless and other locations before being killed by police, authorities said.
The attacks began in the wee hours in the bedroom community of Langley and continued until dawn, according to authorities, who initially suggested the shootings had targeted homeless people.
The first shooting occurred at midnight at the casino, with more shootings at 3 a.m., 5 a.m. and 5:45 a.m. — including at a residential complex that provides support for people who are transitioning out of homelessness. The other shooting scenes were a bus stop and a highway, police said.
Mass shootings are less common in Canada than in the United States. The deadliest gun rampage in Canadian history happened in 2020 when a man disguised as a police officer shot people in their homes and set fires across the province of Nova Scotia, killing 22 people.
The country overhauled its gun-control laws after an attacker killed 14 women and himself in 1989 at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique college.
It is now illegal to possess an unregistered handgun or any kind of rapid-fire weapon in Canada. To purchase a weapon, the country also requires training, a personal risk assessment, two references, spousal notification and criminal record checks.
There is a remarkable lack of information in that article. But there was a gun, of this we may be certain.
“Mass shootings are less common in Canada than in the United States”. People are less common in Canada than the United States.
Mercy is for the weak.
It would have been funnier if the crawler had tipped the other two off.
That young lady – yes I am assuming how she identifies – is going to go places…
New survey results published Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation indicate that 43% of parents of children under 5 in the US say they will not get their child vaccinated against Covid-19, the highest percentage in the year that KFF’s Vaccine Monitor survey has been asking the question.
The US Food and Drug Administration authorized Covid-19 vaccinations in children as young as 6 months in mid-June.
According to the KFF data, only 17% of parents of children between 6 months and 5 years old say their child has been vaccinated or will be as soon as possible. Another 27% say they will wait and see how well the shots work in other kids, and 13% said they will vaccinate their child only if required to do so for school or child care.
Although the percentage of parents unwilling to vaccinate children in this age group is high, it is not much lower in other age groups. According to the survey, 37% of parents of a child 5 to 11 and 28% of parents of a child 12 to 17 say they will not get them vaccinated against Covid-19.
Why don’t those parents want to follow the SCIENCE!? Why do they want their children to die?
Anyone that still thinks the CDC and government entities peddling this shit are doing science is a few cans short from a 30 pack.
This is being done so pharma can make billions and kick back a good chunk of that cash to the political class.
KFF is a bunch of socialist assholes. I guarantee that refusal number is higher but people didn’t want to go on record.
Using their numbers, it’s at least 70% (27% hiding behind the “wait and see” line)
Parents’ responses varied significantly when broken down by partisanship and vaccination status. Just 21% of Democrat-leaning parents said they would not vaccinate their young child, compared with 64% of Republican-leaning parents. The survey found 27% of vaccinated parents said they would not vaccinate their child, compared with 64% of unvaccinated parents.
It’s shameful how some people have politicized life saving medical technology!
I don’t necessarily believe any of this, but it would be humorous if true. TW – CNN
The inside story of how John Roberts failed to save abortion rights
Multiple sources told CNN that Roberts’ overtures this spring, particularly to Kavanaugh, raised fears among conservatives and hope among liberals that the chief could change the outcome in the most closely watched case in decades. Once the draft was published by Politico, conservatives pressed their colleagues to try to hasten release of the final decision, lest anything suddenly threaten their majority.
Roberts’ persuasive efforts, difficult even from the start, were thwarted by the sudden public nature of the state of play. He can usually work in private, seeking and offering concessions, without anyone beyond the court knowing how he or other individual justices have voted or what they may be writing.
“seeking and offering concessions”
Maybe someone wiser than I could explain what such concessions could possibly be among SCJustices… Seriously, I’m at a loss.
Getting the comfy chair? First crack at the hot new clerk?
I’m assuming in how the narrow or broad the majority opinion ultimately winds up being.
Couple things come to mind. When he is in the majority, he can assign who writes the majority opinion.
And, of course, there’s always good old fashioned log-rolling – vote this way in this case, and I’ll vote your way on another case.
As Chief Justice, he probably holds the keys to other, petty little bennies as well.
“vote this way in this case, and I’ll vote your way on another case”
I really hope they don’t do things like that.
Despite what they would have you believe, they’re only human.
That’s THREE sources!
Dammit, my hilarious comment was so believable it fooled the site security!
“failed to save”. That’s some unbiased framing there.
“Concerns over the safety of the vaccines and potential side effects are widespread among parents of unvaccinated children ages 6 months through 4 years old,” the report’s authors wrote.
More than 8 in 10 parents of unvaccinated young children said they were concerned about serious side effects and about unknown long-term effects. Majorities of vaccinated parents of unvaccinated children also had these concerns.
Repeat after me: “SAFE and EFFECTIVE.”
This is quite the energy policy.
Dumbest administration ever.
The only logical explanation is malice.
“Putin oil & gas bad, China batteries good.”
blacka cop sucker.
“Being a cop today is a hell of a lot harder than it’s ever been,” Biden said during his speech. “We expect everything of you. We expect you to be drug counselors to people overdosing at a scene; therapists to couples during a violent confrontation; social workers to kids who have been abandoned. Maybe worst of all, we send you out to do your job on the streets flooded with weapons of war.”
“You hear a lot of politicians say about how much they love you, how much they care about you, they’ll do anything for you,” Biden continued. “In the state you’re in today, Governor [Ron] DeSantis, Sen. [Marco] Rubio, Sen. Rick Scott all opposed banning assault weapons, and Senators Scott and Rubio voted against the bipartisan gun safety law that I signed, the first meaningful gun legislation in nearly thirty years, that you supported. To me, it’s simple. If you can’t support banning weapons of war on American streets, you’re not on the side of police.”
“When it comes to assault weapons, too many politicians are bowing down to the NRA. I believe that we should protect you, protect you.” Biden then repeated the claim that he supports more funding for police. “And I’ll keep saying it: when it comes to public safety, the answer isn’t to defund the police, the answer is to fund the police, fund the police.”
Biden closed his speech by invoking January 6, claiming that police officers were “speared, sprayed, stomped on, brutalized” and “dripping with blood, surrounded by carnage.” Biden attacked former President Donald Trump, saying that Trump could not claim to support law enforcement because of January 6, and insinuating that law enforcement officers shouldn’t support Trump. “You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-cop,” Biden said. “You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-democracy. You can’t be pro-insurrection and pro-America.”
Christ, what a dishonest s.o.b.
My regular place for getting haircuts went out of business during the lockdowns, so I’ve been looking for a new place. The first canddiate place is within walking distance of my house, but it looks like they’ve closed for good too. So now I’m going to try another place slightly further away. I’m always worried about new places because I need to be comfortable with the site and staff for this to work. I’m rarely comfortable with strangers.
So if I have an awful haircut on saturday, it’s the new place’s fault.
“Awful Haircuts” Sign out front, truth in advertising
It just has to be better than when I try to cut my own hair.
Keep believing that …
Reread my statement. That’s a metric by which the result will be evaluated, not a prediction.
Isn’t a stranger just a friend you haven’t met yet? Even your “favorite place” was once unknown to you until you tried it.
Isn’t a stranger just a friend you haven’t met yet?
I’m trying to cultivate this attitude, based on my experience with the Big Dumb One. He could be naturally intimidating, being a fur-coated cinderblock made out of muscle and teeth, but he approaches everyone as if they are already friends, and it works about 98% of the time. When he visits the vet, its like Norm walking into Cheers.

At the moment, the health care legislation looks like it will pass, although whether it can happen as soon as next week is uncertain. Democrats still have a few hurdles to jump to ensure the bill can pass the Senate with a simple majority — they first have to clear it with the chamber’s parliamentarian and then they need enough Democrats in town to pass it. And that’s not certain given the way coronavirus is knocking out senators on a daily basis.
