I feel so cheated (I bet a certain someone feels cheated as well)......apparently I missed this when it was a thing!



Mueller’s report is done. Is there still a point in having a prayer candle with his image on it?



How many in home shrines to "Our Lady of DC" do you think were set up in Nevada City during the time of la resistencia.


Never let it be said that progressives are not people of faith!

\Been too busy to spend time here Barry. By the way if the polls are so important to you why did you not care when Trump was down by over 20 pts in Dec 2017? Fake news I believe you referred to it as.

The kakkler in chief is an empty skirt -

Rep. Henry Cuellar, a moderate from Texas and one of the more prominent voices on border issues in the Democratic Party, said his experiences with Harris’ team had been disappointing. When Cuellar heard Harris was traveling to the border in June, he had his staff call her office to offer help and advice for her visit. He never received a call back.

“I say this very respectfully to her: I moved on,” Cuellar said. “She was tasked with that job, it doesn’t look like she’s very interested in this, so we are going to move on to other folks that work on this issue.”

In the future, Cuellar said he would go straight to the West Wing with his concerns on migration rather than the vice president’s office.

Of the White House, Cuellar said, “at least they talk to you.”

Harris’ aides have pointed to her work lobbying other countries and companies to join the United States in a commitment to invest about $1.2 billion to expand digital access, climate resilience and economic opportunity in Central America.

I guess this could be filed in the get woke go broke file or it was so bad it was not worth making more discs tarnishing the franchise -

Sony appears to be trying to memory-hole its woke 2016 box-office dud Ghostbusters by omitting the feminist reboot from its upcoming Ghostbusters “Ultimate Collection” box set.

The Ghostbusters Ultimate Collection, which Sony will release in February, is an eight-disc set that contains the original 1984 Ghostbusters and its 1989 sequel Ghostbusters II. The ghost-trap-shaped box set also contains the recent Ghostbusters: Afterlife as well as a wealth of supplemental material.

Ghostbusters: Afterlife has been a modest box-office success, so far grossing $114 million domestically in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. The movie doesn’t acknowledge the 2016 Ghostbusters storyline, working instead as a companion piece to the original 1984 movie.

Actress Leslie Jones, who co-starred in the 2016 reboot, lashed out at the new sequel when it was first announced, saying it is “something Trump would do.”

Who knows? It might be a bit embarrassing if history books in the year 2500 have a chapter about the crash of civilization in the early 21st century due to the Worldwide Urea Shortage.

Get married young, have lots of kids, don’t go to college, don’t get vaccinated, the media and doctors are all liars, arm yourself heavily to fight tyranny, communists run the country."
-------

Following that of course are the usual batch of twitter crazypeople, mostly guidance counselors, non-profit executives, HR professionals, K-12 'teachers', and the like chipping in on the evils of the unwashed masses of deplorables.

Ya know, it doesn't sound like entirely bad advice.

A urea shortage is the least of our problems. Diesels for some strange reason ran just fine for 100 years with no urea.
This is a self-inflicted issue for Australia.
Meanwhile the globalist left are running America into a much larger problem. Remember how we rued allowing people who didn't like us to control our energy supply (OPEC, remember?)
Now we've gone from being energy independent to launching into the arms of China as we mandate a method of propulsion for our surface transportation needs that will make us utterly dependent on the CCP. Thanks, Biden!
From the article: "China's control of 85-90% of the rare earths processing sector means an uneasy reliance on Chinese supply for the United States..."
Uneasy?
How completely idiotic do we have to get before we realize our country is being sold down the river to the ChiComs for payoffs to the Biden family and goodness knows who else?

Walt @ 5:24 am

Yep, moi had to shave yesterday. Been awhile. Used the dog trimmer to knock it back to save on razor blades.

So, mixing fertilizer for the pot growers now are we? It’s all good. Might as well make a few clamshells from the herb industry. Everyone else does…at least it seems. I see those pot soil trucks and water trucks and mushroom compost trucks and plumping trucks and electricians’ vans…..good for them, not so good this year for those starting out and thinking big. Price drop in now institutional. Systematic. Heard they are getting only $900/pound in NYC cause Jersey came on line and heard the locals struggling to get 5-6 hundred, if they can dump it. But, what to I know or care? Just scuttlebutt in the wind. Market is flooded and looks like it will stay flooded year round now…and I don’t see it going back to the prices of 10-15 years ago. But, again, what do I know? Pay the trimmer $125/# and dump at $350, lol. Not a good business plan. Probably the only thing in price to have come down during The Biden’s Great Inflation.

So, looks like your delivery job to the farms on private roads didn’t pan out. Not worth tearing up you rig I hazard to guess. Just as well, Those Amazon Prime drivers and soil fertilizer trucks Fed Ex vans are tearing up the road. Only cool ones are USP as they (she, Kelly and ones she trained) stop and throw biscuits out to the dogs who get all happy when they hear Brown approaching a long way off. Sunday Amazon Prime kids (they look like kids to me) flying up the road are the worst offenders. On any given Sunday. Horse manure to that! Bull pucky. Chicken Squat delivered hot.

‘Let’s Go Brandon’: Kid’s Dad Trolls Biden During Santa Tracker Call — And Biden Responds

https://www.dailywire.com/news/lets-go-brandon-kids-dad-trolls-biden-during-santa-tracker-call-and-biden-responds

Bill Tozer

Been looking for an article that reaffirms my belief that Americans in general are good decent caring and sharing people. The Union’s front page is full of our neighbors and fellow citizens donating food to families. I always felt that the group who delivers free firewood to the elderly was great.

One of the four flaws in Karl’s Marx’s head was that he never anticipated the work of philanthropists or the heart of free citizens. Say what you will, but when Reagan got his tax cut through almost two years after his first Inauguration, donations to the non-profits charity outfits soared to record highs.

Anyway….let’s see what Ammo Grlll has to say about it, aka, the short dumpy Jewish lady

THOUGHTS FROM THE AMMO LINE
Ammo Grrrll reflects on A LIFETIME OF UNFORCED DIVERSITY.

“When the Obamas tried to come up with times in their lives when they had been “victims of racism,” it was downright embarrassing. Why, Barack had once been mistaken for a valet, and Michelle had – wait for it, I hope you’re sitting down – been asked to reach something on a high shelf. Oh, the humanity. If only I were EVER asked to reach a high shelf!

When Halle Berry whined about all the terrible racism she had experienced in her mostly-white Ohio high school, her classmates said, “What?” Halle was a cheerleader, the prom queen, an honor student and school paper editor – they were shocked that she had found the experience of going to school with them racist. When such things are pointed out, the professional victims always fall back not on THE truth, but “my” truth. If they FELT discriminated against, then, by Jove, they WERE. It’s all so very tedious.

I now live in the most racially diverse place I have ever lived. I interact every day with Mexicans, African-Americans, Indians, and, of course, white geezers. My days are rich with friends and acquaintances and absolutely not one whit better or worse than when we all were white. Diversity is neither “our strength” nor some kind of disaster. It is a neutral factor. We are all just people, disappointing, inspiring, striving, frustrating, loving, imperfect people! And we forget that at our peril. If you don’t agree that ‘All lives matte,r, I don’t even want to know you. But you know who agrees with that in polls in greater numbers than white liberal suburban women? Black people. That gives me hope.”

"Like diphenhydramine, lactoferrin is available without a prescription. Ostrov thought about pairing it with diphenhydramine and ran with the idea. In lab tests on human and monkey cells, the combination was particularly potent: Individually, the two compounds each inhibited SARS-CoV-2 virus replication by about 30%. Together, they reduced virus replication by 99%."

https://m.ufhealth.org/news/2021/two-common-compounds-show-effectiveness-against-covid-19-virus-early-testing

which has been known for some time in terms of anti-viral value. If those results actually pan out, somebody needs to be hung in a gibbet for not both publishing recommended dosages and amping up production. Maybe it's like N95 vs. a gauze mask, there's no money to be made so no one cares.
