Evening all. Don, if the Dems think that Roe vs Wade will work in their favor and swing the electorate, then they have not seen mothers and grandparent sitter upset and exasperated wanted their Similac and wanted it now!

For some yet to be expained reason the Left has this uncanny and fascinating ability to jump between Momma Bear and her starving unhappy cubs. Keep doing what yer doing and you keep getting what yer getting.....screw climate change, screw Jan 6, screw Roe, screw CRT and Ukraine, screw racism and screw you and the horse you rode in! wheres the baby formula?

Telling Momma to call her pediatrician because the kid doc might have some samples ain't going to cut it.

Paul Emery

Let me ask you the same question Barry:

There have already been over a million deaths in this country due to covid. What do you think could have been done to lower that number and what should we be doing in the future because this is not over yet.

Barry Pruett

We should trust our fellow man to take care of himself, his family, his loved ones, and his neighbors. It is to only way.

From Psul: "The Pandemic’s Wrongest Man"
Not Biden?
Biden told the nation if you got the shot you wouldn't get covid and you wouldn't transmit covid.
How was that for accuracy?

From Joe Biden's best buddy: "The bottom line is that there have already been over a million deaths in this country due to covid."
And MOST of those deaths occurred during which admin?
Hmmmm?
Could have sworn Biden said he had a plan to stop that.
Paul Emery bought that shit hook, line, and sinker.
Hows that workin' out, Paul?
So, WITH the magic shot that we were promised would solve the problem, Biden killed off more than Trump.
And Paul rattles on about whom to believe?

Bill Tozer

Punchy. I know, you put the microphone in Barry’s face, not mine.

“and what should we be doing in the future because this is not over yet.”

Paul, by its aerosol nature, we will never be over. We just learn to live with it. A year ago, the great hullabaloo was over the unvaccinated showing up at the ERs and being the cause of the spread. Dirsapropately high among the unvqxxed.

Now it’s the vaxxed that are making up 68% of the hospitalizations. The magic vax, the silver bullet, the miracle shot has yet to appear. The immunity from shots appears to have a short shelf life. Nationally, the people of these United States of America decided to just live with the Plague. Moving on. What it mutates into next will soon be all over the airwaves, pun not intended. And you will be asking, “What should we do?”

Even the Holy St.Fauci said SARS will never be eliminated, never not rear it’s head again. I know, Biden ran on the promise to win the war against COVID, complete victory and annihilation of the cursed Plague of Death. Influenza seasons come and go and come and go and come.
Still after all what we have been through, it’s still a virus that is most fatal to the elderly and those with preconditions and the obese. 2022 ain’t 2021. What, CA had 4 deaths today? None in our surrounding counties.

We have finally flattened the curve. Odd, it appears the more one is vaxxed and boosted, the more likely it is to catch the Plague of Death again.

I was readin' through the comments on some abortion screed that the Union printed.

I noticed that one Biker Bill sez: "Women have the unique ability to bear children. "

Aha. Gotcha on that one. As we all know from Calvin Klein, men can be pregnant. The Crazytown National Guard will be out to interview one Biker Bill.

After much research, I have discovered just how the pregnant men magic is accomplished. There was an educational cartoon a couple of years ago that explained all (kinda NSFW).

Reading through this article, I was pondering a couple of things:

https://www.zerohedge.com/political/mook-testifies-hillary-clinton-approved-trump-russia-hoax-media-smear

. Yes, it's the evil ZeroHedge. Question. At what point did the Time Magazines and NYTs of the world go all-in on being partisan rags for the DNC? Has it always been true? The political scaffolding that makes up their editorial policy pre-dates Trump as he ran into a solid front first thing.

. You do have to wonder what Twitter HQ is going to look like if Musk goes through with the acquisition. My guess is that it'll look like the Saigon US embassy in 1975. Lots and lots of burning memos, erasing of records, scurrying around to destroy backups of internal emails. The drama is almost worth $40B+ by itself.

re: baby formula.

I just assumed that given JIT delivery at all stages and the tendency of people to buy-a-little-extra if there's a shortage in the air, it doesn't take much. Some precursor material or a health scare in the supply chain and, boom!, no babyformula. Extra bonus points for the tendency to centralize production and distribution into fewer and fewer companies.

While I wouldn't mansplain some chestfeeding person into using their, well, chest, it would surprise me if you couldn't put together a perfectly good (or better) homemade version. It's funny how attached people get to a type or, more importantly, a brand of product.

Of course, I'll only use Quilted Northern due to my own unique butt topology.

Luckily, Elon Musk comes to the rescue in defining terms.

If I had a Twitter account, I definitely would follow Elon. Loved his response to the allegation that “a friend told me that Fernwood Flasher Elon done opened up his trench coat and showed her his Diamond studded family jewels and scepter.

Mr. Musk said he has been waiting for years for a scandal to be named after him and thus he proudly dubbed it Elongate. I like corn ball humor. Elongate is just the first on a long list of of Michael Avenatti’s accusers to come out of the woodwork. But, it just don’t mean a thing if it ain’t got a swing.

Those Africa American immigrants are something else. Wasn’t he once married to Johnnie’s Girl?

Damn it. I wanted to donate to the cause and went out and got a brand new top line breast pump and that darn thing don’t work. Not only does it not work, that thing is painful. Hurt big time. Hurts to put my tee shirt back on. What a way to start the day. That dog poop ain’t going move itself. Nature calls. Chao. What a way to start a day.

re: baby formula.

I got interested in the concept of homemade baby formula and evidently it's impossible to make and you'll kill your children &c. Baby formula wars through the years including some German manufacturer who produced some product that caused beriberi.

I can see the problem as a lot of people would simply slosh together cows milk with a dollop of whiskey and call it good.

The logical thing to do is for someone who specializes in such matters to publish an acceptable recipe, for emergencies if nothing else.

re: Musk, Elon

Trying to buy Twitter and veer it away from a propaganda arm of the DNC sure is causing an uproar. Up until now he's been pretty bulletproof, but as the new Trump he'll become The Enemy of the Blue People. As a South African, no doubt he favored apartheid and used to beat the maid for being late with the tea.

The tricky thing with Crazytown is that you'll never convince them of anything, regardless of the previous 10k years of experience in some matters, so it's just best to avoid them. Musk probably needs to give his Mars plans a bit more oomph as the thing he'd leave behind is losing it's mind.

George Rebane

BillT 930am - Mr Tozer, can 'Elongate' also be understood as a self-aggrandizing double entendre, or is that a bridge too far?

scenes

wow, what a rabbit hole the formula vs. breast milk argument is.

After looking through a few studies, most of the internet pages aren't much use of course, my working theory is so:

. Increasing use of formula ->
. Increased obesity rates, diabetes, other chronic health issues ->
. Low T men ->
. More liberal voters

Well, that was simple to figger out. Time for yard work.

George Rebane

Gentlemen - you youngsters have no idea that almost all mothers made their own baby formulas through the 1960s with the main ingredients being condensed milk, corn syrup, and water. The pain in the butt was sterilizing the bottles and nipples. That's why store-bought formulas became the rage when their price came down from applying all those economies of scale. Bottom line, there should be no screeching and wailing across the land from women with starving babies.

Bill Tozer

I’m grew up a can of condensed milk at the ready. From baking to emergency watered down yucky slim milk for the Corn flakes, every matriarchal cabinet should have a can of condensed milk in the cupboard collecting dust for emergencies just like what is going down now.

Washing of bottles and nipples, pans boiling water to sterilize glass bottles, heating of formula in microwave or stove top, testing temperature of formula on wrist, give it to the infant….who has not patience and they want their purple baba and they want it 12 minutes ago.

Knew a woods back to the earth couple in Idaho that used goats milk. Not bad if its chilled, but warm goats milk as a taste that really needs to be acquired. Mommas little baby loves shorting shorting, Momma’s little baby love shortin’ breaddddd.

Scenes:
Elongate: its not only Elon wrestling away the DNC controlled Twitter, it’s better than that. He is exposing the depths of the lies, corruption, depravity, and wickedness that lurks in their collective souls. The corruption alone stinks to high heaven. Elon is making it so there is no where to hide, the escape routes are all boxed in. He is smoking them out into the barren open. He seems to take a particular interest in the Russiagate actors and Twiiters big role that played. And Durham is hitting them on the other side by exposing them for all to see.

Many have said for some years now that Russiagate, Spygate, Hillary’s E-Mailgate could have never happened without a willing and eager participant in the media. Twitter, as small as it is domestically, is the preferred go-to platform to create, then spin, the narrative.

Couldn’t have done it without Twitter and they and the not so invisible hand liked it that way. Some folks just don’t do change well, I reckon.

‘Forcing 1 Million Escaped Students Back to the Public School Plantation’

Those kids mean money in the bank for teachers’ unions and Democrats.

“Otherwise how are you gonna keep ‘em down on the farm now that they’re seen what a functioning educational system that puts math and science ahead of wokeness looks like?

In the face of parental revolts over efforts to bring graphic sex, racism, and sexual identity grooming into classrooms, Dems could give parents greater control over school curriculums.

Instead they’re trying to destroy any alternative to the system whose teachers fund their party.

Last week, minority parents protested outside the White House against Biden's new war on charter schools. Even while the media eagerly covered every pro-abortion activist wearing a handmaid costume, 1,000 parents rallying at the White House received virtually no coverage.

Why are minority charter school parents upset?

The Biden administration's assault on charter schools comes by way of rules which, much like the CDC’s school reopening regulations, were likely written with a great deal of input from the UFT and teachers’ unions, are meant to cut off alternatives to the failed public school system.

After attacking school choice and now charter schools, all that’s left is homeschooling, and educrats have been pushing for “reforms” to crack down or eliminate that option entirely.“

For your reading pleasure:

“President Biden's approval rating has plummeted to its lowest point of his presidency, according to a new poll released Friday.

The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Research poll shows just 39% of U.S. adults approve of the president's job performance.

In addition, the polls found just roughly two in 10 adults say the country is headed in the right direction or that the economy is good. Both figures are down from roughly three in 10 adults last month.

The poll was conducted May 12-16 among 1,172 U.S. adults with a sampling error of 4 percentage points.

Even among Democrats, just 33% of members of the president's party said the country is headed in the right direction, compared to 49% in April.

The results of the poll reflects a widespread sense of pessimism over such so-called kitchen table issues as inflation, including record gas prices and the sudden shortage of baby formula, amid further concerns about attempts to cool the economy resulting in a recession.

A plurality of Democrats (44%) say the president's policies have made no difference to the economy, and 37% say they've done more to help than hurt, though that figure is down from 45% last month.

On the whole, 51% of Americans say the administration's policies have done more to hurt the economy that help it.

Regarding the U.S. borders, the poll shows that just 38% of Americans are pleased with Biden's handling of immigration and 21% say they have a "great deal of confidence" in the president's ongoing ability to handle the war in Ukraine; 39% say they have some degree of confidence, and 39% say they have hardly any.”

Exactly like Biden to set records. Longest slide in the stock market since 1932, highest inflation in 40 years, every single day sets a new record for gas prices. To cap it off, Biden is now losing Democrats which accounts for his continuous fall into the tunnel of no return.

Fools gold -

In Sacramento, officials said California’s grid could face a potential shortfall of roughly 1,700 megawatts, which would affect the power supply of between 1 million and 4 million people this summer. That number would likely be exacerbated by an additional shortfall of 5,000 megawatts in the case of extreme heat and further fire damage to existing power lines.

“Let’s say we were to have a substantial number of [electric] vehicles charging at home as everybody dreams,” Ram Rajagopal, an associate professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University, who authored a recent study looking at the strain electric vehicle adoption is expected to place on the power grid, told Yahoo Finance. “Today’s grid may not be able to support it. It all boils down to: Are you charging during the time solar power is on?”

The alert in the nation’s most populous state highlighted the delicate dance utility companies face in managing warming temperatures with tightening energy supply as the country moves rapidly away from fossil fuel generation to meet ambitious targets aimed at drastically reducing emissions.

California has set out to become a leader in the green transition, aiming to rid its electrical grid of all carbon sources by 2045

Globally, the number of electric vehicles is expected to swell from 7 million to 400 million by 2040. The transition to zero-emission cars is estimated to add 2,000 TWh to annual energy demand by 2050 — a 40% increase — according to a study by global advisory group ICF.

“The use of an electric vehicle is like adding one or two air conditioners to your residence in terms of its energy increase,” Mike Jacobs, Senior Energy Analyst at Union of Concerned Scientists, told Yahoo Finance. “So when the local utility engineer looks at this, he thinks of that air conditioning in the afternoon and the electric vehicle coming home at the same time.”

Well the heck is the Musk post? While Elon Mania and The Maniacs subsides a teeny bit, I feel we should Elongate the topic. Ain’t ready to move on. Maybe tomorrow, but not this lovely morn.

‘The left targets Elon Musk because he won’t conform to liberal orthodoxy’

“Ever since Musk announced his intention to buy Twitter, he has faced a barrage of serious attacks.

A hit piece in The New York Times this month sought to tie Musk to apartheid in South Africa, despite Musk having left the country when he was a teenager. The Times got one expert to contend that the country’s lack of “a free exchange of ideas” protected South Africans from “the violent consequences of misinformation.” When you’ve reached the point of arguing that South Africa’s censorship was actually good, you may have gone too far.

Joy Reid, who regularly says crazy things on TV as host of MSNBC’s “The ReidOut,” hit a similar line, saying that Musk “misses the old South Africa in the ’80’s and wants that back.”

Now there’s a story out about an old sexual-harassment allegation, brought forth not by the alleged accuser but by a friend who claims to have knowledge of the harassment. Musk categorically denies the incident took place. He tweeted, “The attacks against me should be viewed through a political lens — this is their standard (despicable) playbook — but nothing will deter me from fighting for a good future and your right to free speech.”

Everyone knows it won’t stop there. Musk has done something unacceptable to the left and its media friends, and they will now seek to punish him.“

GR: "Gentlemen - you youngsters have no idea that almost all mothers made their own baby formulas through the 1960s with the main ingredients being condensed milk, corn syrup, and water.'"

I got minorly interested in the world of Big Formula. What a funny sort of product. Judging from Amazon, it's basically an industrial food powder, made from cheap materials, that they charge $1-2/oz (!!!) for. Nice work if you can get it.

Most of the formulas seems to consist of some powdered milk variant, a whole bunch of corn syrup, (usually) some soy stuff and cheap oils, a handful of minerals sprinkled in. Somebody should just sell the vitamin/mineral part and let the baby owner do the rest if they are Avoiding the Breast for some reason.

I have to wonder whether all the sugar is strictly necessary or if it's there to make the stuff more palatable to the buyer.

https://www.marketwatch.com/story/two-years-after-george-floyds-killing-big-tech-shareholders-continue-racial-justice-push-11653324711?mod=home-page
Idiot quote:
"Shareholders are urging Amazon.com Inc. AMZN, -0.03% and Meta Platforms Inc. FB, +1.39% to conduct racial-equity audits; explore the potential risks of the metaverse with respect to discrimination and civil-rights violations; examine a claim that Facebook is discriminating against employees deemed “non-diverse”; and more."
'...and more'!
Oh, boy!
Shareholders - all of them? A tenth of them? 3 of them?
"The numbers show that’s true: Shareholder resolutions calling for civil-rights and racial-equity audits reached a record number, 34, this proxy season, according to Interfaith Center on Corporate Responsibility, a shareholder-advocacy organization. ICCR said its more than 300 institutional-investor member organizations filed a record-breaking 485 resolutions, 105 of which are related to racial justice, which also is a record."
More than THREE HUNDRED orgs!
This aint no cottage industry.
Damn! I shoulda gone into the 'equity audits' industry.
The various circuit-rider preachers of the First Church Of Equity are busy traveling about absolving the numerous American companies of an ever-increasing list of nasty sins so that the public relation offices can hope to not have their businesses burnt down.
That one outfit at least has a sense of humor, calling itself "Color Of Change".
And the color is US Treasury Green.
All of this brought to you by the misadventures of a drug-addict loser thug who OD'ed after passing counterfeit money.
Hilarious.

Now, the Census Bureau has issued a report detailing how a number of states were undercounted while otherwise were overcounted. The states that were undercounted include Arkansas, Florida, Illinois, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Texas — all but one of which voted twice for Trump in the last two presidential elections.

The data suggests that voters who twice voted to elect Trump over Democrat candidates were more likely to be undercounted in the 2020 Census than voters who backed Democrats against Trump in the last two elections.

OMG dont tell the truth about it you racist sexist breeder bastards! -

More cases of monkeypox have been reported amid an ongoing outbreak in countries that don't typically have the disease, with quite a few of the cases reported from European countries. The outbreaks may have been spread through sexual activity at two rave parties in Europe, an expert said.

A leading theory for the spread of the disease may be sexual activity at two recent raves in Spain and Belgium, Dr. David Heymann, former head of the World Health Organization's (WHO) emergencies department who chaired the agency's advisory group Friday, told the Associated Press (AP).

UNAIDS said “a significant proportion” of recent monkeypox cases have been identified among “gay, bisexual and other men who have sex with men” leading to some portrayals of Africans and LGBTI people gravely “reinforce homophobic and racist stereotypes and exacerbate stigma.”

re: DonB@2:04PM

That actually seems pretty logical if you view Biden as The Great Unifier.

The thing is, he's trying to unify a group of people who are much more left wing than they were in Clinton's time (the 'moderate' Team Blue) and the more radical folks (the batshit crazy Team Blue).

The other half of the country can go pound sand.

Of course, none of this will halt the more egregious angles to federal law enforcement. Arbitrary enforcement of law, political prisoners, prison terms all over the map, the occasional incineration or shooting of a dissident in the back country somewhere.

The next logical step is an annual national day of mourning for St. Floyd. Mostly peaceful building-burning BBQs, 100% off sale at urban jewelry stores, dance on the police car competitions. Not such a bad idea, there's a certain thrill to action at a distance and it makes great TV. Like in Portland, people tend to have the mass behavior they deserve.

Hogg Watch

David Hogg has been trotted out on NPR

Universal Background Checks is his answer... but Ramos bought his rifles legally at retail... getting the magic Background check.

So did the shooter that propelled Hogg to fame... but that kid was benefitted by a program that kept his dozens of police interactions as a juvenile from ending in an arrest, leaving him with a clean record.

Hogg's "Universal" Check isn't about retail sales, it is about requiring running all transfers through a FFL holder... even those within families and one's circle of friends. Your son, your daughter, nieces and nephews, cousins. Even your spouse.

We've had the initial impulsive calls for gun owner controls, perhaps we'll now hear more about the shooter; somehow, I suspect he wasn't an Eagle Scout.

So come to find out there is voter fraud and it's the Republicans that are doing it. Just out:

"The GOP’s efforts to unseat Michigan’s Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer, ran into some trouble on Tuesday when the state’s elections bureau determined that five of the ten Republican candidates had faked the signatures necessary for them to appear on the ballot. Because of the bogus ink, half of the field could now be ineligible for the August 2 primary.

There was quite a bit of fraud, according to the Michigan Bureau of Elections. Some compromised petition sheets “consisted entirely of invalid signatures.” Others showed evidence of being “round-tabled,” the process in which a group of people takes turns signing names so the same handwriting isn’t repeated line after line. A few showed “no evidence of normal wear” and misspellings of voters’ names, suggesting that whoever botched the job didn’t really put their full effort into trying to defraud the Wolverine State. In total, for the governor’s race and other down-ballot contests, an estimated 68,000 invalid signatures were submitted."

"The GOP’s efforts to unseat Michigan’s Democratic governor, Gretchen Whitmer, ran into some trouble on Tuesday when the state’s elections bureau determined that five of the ten Republican candidates had faked the signatures necessary for them to appear on the ballot"

Punchy, there's no evidence any *candidate* "faked the signatures necessary". Someone may have but it probably ain't the guy or gal wishing to get on the ballot who probably paid good money to people who were paid per signature.

In addition, getting rid of the clutter might help the GOP chances in MI.

Poor Psul - First he claims there is no such thing as voter fraud and then if he'd bothered to READ the whole article it said there was no evidence that any Republicans were involved in the false signatures.
Sounds like a bunch of pay-per-signature bozos sat around in a bar 'earning' money.
That's why we have to have verified votes at election time, Psul. Not stacks of crisp, never-folded Xeroxed 'ballots'.

You need to be a registered voter to sign the petitions to get a candidate on the ballot. Pure and simple that makes it voter fraud.

Regarding Michael Moore, I suspect a case could be made that his films would have given the Founders pause in writing Amendment the First.

re Republican election fraud. As pointed out in 1007am and 1031am, there is no evidence of Republican involvement. But it is noteworthy the rapidity and glee with which our loyal leftwinger grappled this piece and gave his breathless report so that we may all be humbled in realizing that it isn't the Dems who do all the mischief in our elections.

re: Michael Moore.

At least he cuts right to the chase there. No guns for anyone. It avoids all that messy business of effective rates of fire and whatnot. According to Mr. Moore, the history of firearms in the US is POC being gunned down by white folks, so at least you know where to look for the guns.
