"then affiliation with “gangs” will get you deported."

A clever bit of subterfuge, that. Simply have the Soros Organized Group of Folks District Attorneys refer to any arrest as 'organized group of folks' related, and nobody hits the laws put into place dealing with the 'g' word. Brilliant.

I do see where Commandante Newsom is being called to refer to 'third world countries' as 'developing countries', although they never do.

Naturally, 'shithole' is out of bounds. I would suggest something nice and poetic like 'Augean Stable'.

I have noticed calling a place a “hellhole” does not get you banned from polite society (community standards) as quickly as does the noun (or adjective) “shitho$&.” Trump ruint the apt description. Right after or before the 2020 elections, I heard a clip of Barrack Obama spending his normal 20 minutes non-answering a question posed to him. Always a great way to run out the clock, as was his MO. Anyway, he uttered the phrase, “But, I digress..” and it ruint it for me forever. I tried a couple of times since to end my ramblings off point with, “But I digress,” but I it rang like a brass bell...different. Ruint it for me.

35,000 population would be a nice(r) smaller town fell. When my younger sis and her husband packed up and sold the empty nest old ranch house surrounded by condos and new developments, they moved to the Olympic Peninsula….with the rain forest in their back yard. From arid land to a friggin rain forest. They live 13 miles from the nearest convenient store, lol. I asked her how she has adjusted, as she said fine…pause…”fine but no place is perfect. It’s good. “

What happened was a neighbor who owns the parcel adjoining their backyard cut down all the trees (forest) along the property line. It’s the neighbor’s right of course, but the backyard forest (my sis and her husband did not cut down any trees except a couple along the front as they became a hazard along their road. So, their back yard is still a forest, but now they can see their neighbors lights and a part of another road they never saw before. Go figure. ‘Newbie’ moves to the backyard of the Olympic Rain Forest and first thing he does is clear out the trees. There is/was a house entering Cascade Shores who did the same thing. A resident nearby asked a good question. “Why move to the forest if the first thing you do is get rid of the trees? Like 95% of the trees. It was known as “that house”, my the locals, lol.

“It’s good. Fine. No place is perfect.”

Well, let’s look at source of the crickets.

“Asked on Wednesday at a wide-ranging news conference about his flagging popularity, Biden responded, “I don't believe the polls.””

Neither do several commentators on the Union site and, as pointed out, ‘they walk among us.’ Maybe they feel that we walk among them.

"A Long Island, New York grandmother is being hailed for setting up and helping capture a suspected scammer in a trap that was all caught on video.

The 73-year-old former 911 dispatcher Jean Ebbert received an odd call this week from a man claiming to be her grandson who was in jail for DUI and needed $8,000, Ebbert told Fox & Friends on Saturday.
Ebbert says she knew that she didn’t have a grandson who was old enough to drive and knew it was a scam but decided to keep playing along anyway despite her family members telling her to hang up.

"My son was like ‘hang up ma’ and I'm thinking you're 40 years old I'm 73 and you're telling me to hang up?" Ebbert said. "And I didn't hang up. I usually hang up."

Ebbert eventually spoke to another man on the phone who claimed to be her grandson’s lawyer and asked to come to the house to collect the bail money. Jean told the man to come to the house to pick up the money but also called the police to wait for the man when he arrived.

When the man showed up at Jean’s house, she handed him an empty envelope full of paper towels before officers swarmed him in an exchange that was captured on her Ring doorbell camera."

When Masks Become A Religious Talisman

“Even their most ardent defenders demanding endless mask mandates have conceded their ineffectiveness in an effort to demand stricter protocols with tighter masks that wrinkle the face. Within a year of the pandemic’s inception, cloth masks in public became no different than the passive progressivism embedded in gender pronoun bios: pointless in reality, but central to their users’ identity.

No small part of the population was addicted to signaling their moral superiority even preceding the pandemic.”

"When Masks Become A Religious Talisman"

I have to laugh every time I think about masks.

Talk about a relatively easy thing to measure, not hard to ramp up production of if you apply some real money (assuming there isn't a hard-to-find precursor in their supply chain).

It just shows how effing incompetent the government is. Really, you are on your own in this world. Just assume it from the get-go and no one will be disappointed.

Two choices.

1. Masks were never particularly useful. Government either continuously lied or simply can't find it's ass with both hands.
2. Masks are useful. Ramp up production of those that are, give them away, really stamp down on fakes (them Chinese just love them their fakes, especially when it's a safety issue). After two years, I'm not seeing evidence of this.

Maybe they are still working on vision statements, diversity declarations, and action plans.

You are making a fool out of yourself for branding me as a drinker. Anyone who knows me up here knows that's not true-What gave you that idea? Probably because you have nothing else to say which gives me credibility. I must be doing something right. Thanks Bill helping to reveal what an idiot you are.

Paul Emery: "You are making a fool out of yourself for branding me as a drinker."

Paul Emery: "I've said it over and over."

Perhaps it is insulting, but you can see the confusion. Anyone who has posted (probably) a thousand or so anti-Trump, basically contentless posts is likely to either be a drunk or mentally ill.

It's the kind of thing you see quite a lot on Twitter. There's always the angry single-topic people that post over and over saying basically the same thing.

Maybe you could give us some insight on your condition. There's no point in insulting a person who simply can't help their behavior. Whether it's OCD, substance abuse, or Tourette's, we're here for you man.

Brother Paul.

Nothing wrong with being a drinker. Sitting one a patio with good friends having a glass of wine watching the sun go down over the ocean...it’s what people of all stripes do. Works great as a social lubricant, taking the rubber band out of the ponytail, let’s the hair down so to speak, kicking the shoes off back, reclining back and relaxing.

Well, it appears to this idiot that you got too busy non-drinking to answer the question. Had no idea you bedtime was 7:30 pm.

Looking back, you have told us 100x you did not vote for Obama in 2012 nor Hillary Rodman Clinton in 2016. Looking ahead, you said Biden will not run again so 2024 is a moot point.

So, I am not asking who you voted for in 2016 (past’ nor whom your choice will be it be 2024 (future).

What I am asking you is do you consider 2020 a recent election, and if so, did you irejoined the Big Tent for President in 2020 after your eight year absence.

Do you choose Biden as your choice for President in Nov, 2020, a mere 14 months ago? If not, you have gone 12 years since your vow to never vote for a major party candidate again.

Tucker did a good overview. What I was lazily following earlier is: Hunter, in 2016, representing a Chinese client, bought out a cobalt mining company from a Arizona company whose mines are in Africa. Colbalt is kind of important for all those batteries needed to fundamentally transform…. Somehow, that got through the US government after review……in 2016. China is buying up all the strategic materials to own the whole enchilada of our green energy future. I will look into that later.

On a more happy note, I did not see one Road Warrior RV while driving down Coyote Street Tuesday. Then I realized I was driving down E Broad, lol. No wonder I couldn’t think of a business along Coyote right above town. Didn’t see no RV park cause I wasn’t on Coyote St, lol.

GeorgeR: "PaulE 132pm - I note with some regret that you are still not able to address meaningful messages, and instead you duck the issue by disparaging the messenger."

I've been thinking about that and have a theory.

Why would a person stumble into a sort of autistic posting style, saying basically the same thing over and over. There does appear to be a lot of low level mental illness in the world anymore, God knows that flipping through Twitter will show you that.

After a couple of years of being socially isolated, people haven't gotten to zero contacts but everyone has fewer than before, there's a real possibility for a kind of general depression to take hold. It's the kind of thing that drives you to talking about Donald Trump a dozen times a day. Paul is likely to be unmarried and having less contacts with the outside world (plus a bit of ageing) gets you to that point.

If it makes him feel better, I guess he should just carry on as before. It isn't like all a person's activities have to be useful or constructive.

https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2022/jan/23/no-military-evacuation-us-citizens-if-russia-invad/

Here's a thought, what if Russia slices off a piece of Ukraine at the same time as China really messes with Taiwan? I hope that Admiral Levine is assigned to the problem.

“A strong point of the Biden administration is it's consistency.”

True dat. We leave only the good guys behind. I suppose the American folks stranded in Ukraine could hop a plane to Iran and get promptly shot down approaching the Persian Empire. It would be Biden’s fault if some Iranian young adrenaline hyped up soldier, got trigger happy and blew the plane out of the sky. Or, hop a plane to London with folks clinging to the wings and wheels of the jet liner. Darn those bitter clingers.

Before move on from yesterday’s news, a quick overview how folks viewed Biden in mid-January. Happy Birthday, Mr. President.

‘That Sinking Feeling: U.S.S. Brandon Takes on Water Amid Dreadful Poll Numbers’

“On specific issues, things look no better. According to Real Clear Politics' average of polls, Biden suffers from 60 percent disapproval on the economy and 72 percent disapproval related to the prices of everyday goods.

If Biden is steering toward re-election, he will not get there with these dismal numbers. They reveal deep and wide dissatisfaction with Bidenflation, the virtually erased US-Mexico "border," the Afghanistan catastrophe, record-breaking murders in at least 16 Democrat-run cities, the supply-chain crisis, Biden's inability to "shut down the virus," as confirmed by the 1,483,656 new C-19 cases recorded on January 10 alone.

And much more.“

I really liked this quote from Scott Adams:

"When scientists switch from doing science to managing public opinion, expect the public to try and figure out the science themselves so they know WTF to do to stay alive.

re: BillT@8:45AM

No problemo. Biden (or the people actually pulling the strings) will just gin up a war. Presto chango, we'll all pull together to defeat the XXXX menace. Maybe.

Given his declining state, especially since he was not the sharpest tool in the shed to begin with, Biden is the perfect Mayor of Crazytown. As long as I'm not messed with too much (aside from the 10% haircut in net worth), it all makes for great TV.

"The EU is not following the US in withdrawing its diplomats’ families from Ukraine, top European diplomat Josep Borrell said on Monday (24 January), adding that there was no need to “dramatise” the situation while talks with Russia continue.

“We are not going to do the same thing because we don’t know any specific reasons,” Borrell said as he arrived for a meeting of EU foreign ministers which will include videolink participation by US Secretary of State Antony Blinken.

“I don’t think we had to dramatise as far as the negotiations are going on — and they are going on.”"

Ukraine.
From Russia’s POV, they had and do have a very important naval base in Crimea…the only outlet to make it down to the sea. The trouble is there is only only a narrow land bridge to reach the naval yard for resupplying, etc. Crimea is a Russian speaking country whose history of Russian rule go back to Catherine the Great. We are talking exclusively about EASTERN Ukraine.

Think of Ukraine as the rural fly over country and manufacturing centers in our ‘Rust Belt’ as their east and the coastal blue state (and capital) as Ukraine’s cosmopolitan west.

All was fine until the Ukrainian government during the Obama era said they were going to cut off Mother Russia’s access through Ukraine to Crimea. Putin grabbed Crimea at once and pushed hard for a pro-Russian alley elected as President of Ukraine. (That’s was who both Tony Podesta and Paul Manafort did public relations for.). The US did it’s part in getting the pro-Russian dude out and a more pro-Western dude in. That dude was pretty corrupt and the people of Ukraine finally voted for a TV comedian to run things.

So, here we are today. All the action will be in Ukraine’s more Russian population in east. The places where all the diplomats and our State department personnel hang out is in Kiev…the West. Ukraine is about the size of CA, so think Southern Cal vs Northern Ca.

That is why European countries are not evacuating citizens and foreign service personnel. They are quite safe in Kiev, hundreds of miles from the border buildup in the east.

Ukraine seems like an odd place. Poised for trouble since it's on a language/religion/cultural fault line. Any map of the place showing religious affiliation, primary language spoken, etc. shows the issue...but it's always more complicated I guess.

a different matter. Anyone that views the ACLU as anything but a legal arm of the so-called progressive movement in the US is, well, probably not correct.

Bill Tozer

Yes, it has been dishearting watching the ACLU moving into the political ramifications realm...or into the political considerations arena from fiercely defending even the least amongst us, the more reprehensible amongst us...their 1St Amendment Rights...to flip off a cop or whatever. Or, that homeless dude on rollerskates that used to blast his portable electric guitar to 11 decibles up and down Venice beach. Or vagancy laws. Wonder how long it will be before they call out Alan the Derchz. Ain't your daddy's ACLU. Ruint.

"Yes, it has been disheartening watching the ACLU moving into the political ramifications realm"

It's the way of the world. Once an organization has been built-up, has resources, acquires a sort of feedstock of employees, they're all going to match. Whether it's GM in the 1950's or a legal-organization-with-a-mission, everyone ends up coming from the same schools with the same philosophy.

It's always kind of too-bad when an old organization is bent to the will of a new mafia, but it's darned hard to avoid I think. God knows what the original donors to the various Pew Trusts would think of the current executives.

If you want a legacy, a feedback loop that keeps it on-track looks super difficult to achieve.

Looking at modern 'progressives', I'd say that the US Constitution is on it's last legs. The Founding Fathers are as far removed from an Adam Schiff or Pelosi as it's possible to be. Without a fundamentalist Supreme Court, the Brownian motion puts you in weird places. I really don't think that more modern institutions have the legs of the Egyptian civilization.

re: DonB@1:25PM

A response to that article got me to thinking along the same lines.

Strongly approve of Joe Biden's Performance - 19%
People living with a mental illness - 20% (per Mental Health Foundation)

Coincidence? You be the judge.

I can even see that ratio happening here. Regular posters on RR (all with a POV)? 6 or so. Compulsive anti-Trump posters? 1.

Question. What is our civic responsibility to be nice to obnoxious crazy people? It's something of an open question, but whether you are dealing with a homeless person who persists on crapping on your back step or Paul, it's a thing I muse on.

There's a lot to like in this article. Welcome to the future.

"After the Jan. 6 insurrection, the Capitol Police’s intelligence unit quietly started scrutinizing the backgrounds of people who meet with lawmakers, according to three people familiar with the matter.

POLITICO also viewed written communications describing the new approach, part of a host of changes that the department implemented after the Capitol attack. Examining the social media feeds of people who aren’t suspected of crimes, however, is a controversial move for law enforcement and intelligence officials given the civil liberties concerns it raises."
