Screw the citizens, they never did this for vets or other Americans &$)@&$ that gov, spend the money on deportations -

On Tuesday, commentator Howie Carr posted a long list of freebies that the state is handing to illegals. His list is extensive and includes costs for housing, food, clothing, rent, and many more expenditures.

Carr’s list includes $150 per day for each illegal staying in a free hotel room, $64 per day in meal costs per person, free medical care, dry cleaning, housekeeping, free Ipads, cell phones, chargers, clothing, diapers, baby supplies, car seats, education, legal services, and many, many other line items.

Hochul is suffering from a transparency problem, though. The questions over where all the money is going is a serious one. Recently, the Boston Herald asked the state to supply a full accounting of where all the money is going.

A politician who is in court partly because he cheated on his wife while she was pregnant and was also accused of groping and grabbing a woman by her pussy in a store and then defaming her is now hawking the "God Bless the USA" edition Holy Bible for profit and to pay lawyer fees for those who are defending him against his sins.

Why would a mainstream news network like NBC consider hiring an election denier who shills for Donald Trump in his attempts to steal the election like Ronna McDaniels?
She obviously doesn't have a problem repeating conspiracy theories and fake news.
She calls it taking one for the team.

NBC should have a variety of voices of different political persuasions on their shows, just not a lying MAGA shill.

Looking at the Nevada County salaries/benefits - I thought that women were only paid 80% of men's salaries. Half of the 36 highest paid folks are women. Or have women's names. A shame the 80% rule doesn't apply to Cali/Nevada - might save some money.

EF@5:30 "Looking at the Nevada County salaries/benefits - I thought that women were only paid 80% of men's salaries. Half of the 36 highest paid folks are women. "

Judging from local radio, every single manager and talking head from county .gov is female. I'd have to guess that their hiring and advancement has been predicated on gender for some time. I admit that I'd probably prefer an emergency services exec to be a grizzled old dude who has seen it all instead of County Barbie with uptalk, but it's mostly about meetings and reports and stakeholders and whatnot anyway. The money in a grant-based world has to go somewhere and it might as well be the current recipients.

Dunno if government will be the last holdout of humanity, including make-work, or if GPT-GOV will be a thing real soon.


EF: "If there were only some way to get competition to the county govt.- maybe salaries would come down."

There's always been outsourcing, but you just end up with the office in charge of outsourcing spending as much money as the outsourcing itself, plus the outsourcing goes to your special friends. Twas always thus.

Over time, I can't imagine a government that doesn't become wealthy on the backs of it's citizens. The combination of monopoly and threat of force will, over time, always lead to the same results, good deeds or not. There's a reason the GULAG camp commanders could live in luxury, Venetian Doges had good art collections, the Clinton are sittin' pretty, and it wasn't from running a successful plumbing supply business.

I've always admired the local government wage ratchet that has happened in my lifetime. (1) We need job guarantees because we don't make much. (2) We need better benefits because we don't make much. (3) We need good wage-based pensions because we don't make much and we are selfless servants (4) We need high wages to attract 'talent' (which brings up the pensions, naturally). On the Left there's the knee-jerk reaction to the goodness of anything 'union', on the Right a certain amount of automatic praise of anything public safety oriented.

It's all good.

A bit of edifying sanity re Baltimore......

"This deserves a bit more because frankly, I'm getting tired of the nuts.

Indeed this might get added to my FAQ here (go see the section on "Troofers" for what happens if you run that garbage on my forum, whether in the comment section or otherwise) because it is getting about that stupid.

Let's talk a bit about boat handling, especially single-screw vessels. Most props (unless you have twins) are what are called "right hand" screws. When going ahead the torque effect and the rotation of the water column coming off the screw tend to move the stern of the ship to starboard, and since the vessel only has applied moment (force) at the stern this means if the stern goes starboard the bow goes to port. Each vessel has an "effective" pivot center; exactly where it is varies, but it is not in the center of the vessel length-wise. With an outboard it is often at or right near the transom, which can make close-quarter handling quite a mess in snotty conditions at low speed. Gigabite, which was a Hatteras 45' Sportfish, pivoted at around her engine locations, which was roughly 10-15' or so from the transom (she had twin Detroit diesels.)

A twin engine vessel has one RH and one LH screw, and with both engaged she will track more or less straight because the two torque and rotation of the water columns cancel each other out. But a single-screw vessel does not. The other factor is that as way increases the water flow over the keel tends to keep her going in a straight line.

Further, the rudder gets most of its authority -- that is, the ability to steer -- from the blast of the prop which is directly in front of it, and at lower speeds through the water it has almost zero authority without the screw turning. Note that the speed over ground does not account for current and the current is almost-never exactly aligned with your direction of travel, so it always, when it is present, attempts to destabilize the path of your vessel. In harbors and similar tidal flow is the primary cause of said currents and of course they shift depending on whether you have a rising or falling tide and exactly where you are. In some cases this can be quite-treacherous, especially if you get other than straight on with or against it; someone who was a dockmate of mine with a sailboat attempted to abort running Destin Pass with friends on board (that was stupid, by the way), got sideways and the boat was knocked down and dismasted. That was a 40 footer too -- not a little rowboat. Fortunately nobody was killed and the boat did not sink but two were ejected and had to swim to the jetties.

It is clear that the power went off on the vessel. Why it went off remains to be determined but that it did, and that the emergency generator started when it did, is known because you can see the power go off and then come back on. It then trips a second time, presumably due to an extreme demand (e.g. the skipper attempting a last-ditch use of the bow thruster at full power to keep off the piling.)

Until the power went down the ship was in the channel and on a stable heading. It would have had some starboard rudder dialed in -- in other words, it was not set dead straight forward -- because the normal "walk" of the screw ahead would be to induce a port turn if it was dead straight. When the power goes down that torque and rotational effect disappears and the rudder is now going to try to turn the ship slightly to starboard, and it is locked there with power off. Add to this any current impact if the flow is in any way other than head-on (and as noted it almost never is straight on) and the impact of wind and that the ship began to yaw is not surprising, nor is it surprising it went to starboard.

Without power you now are riding on 100,000 tons of metal (and cargo) traveling at whatever velocity you were at underway which is subject to external forces you cannot counteract. By the time the power comes back up it is likely there was nothing that could be done to prevent the collision but you can bet they tried -- the second power failure made those attempts irrelevant. As you can see from the video when the power comes back again they're within seconds of impact.

Older machinery was not reliant on electrical power to work. My boat had two mechanical diesels operated with cables from the bridge to the engines and transmissions; the transmissions (large ships are typically straight-shaft with no gearbox) were hydraulically operated by a pump driven from the engine. Once started so long as they had fuel, air and lubricating oil they run. The steering gear on my boat was hydraulic but with no booster so again, as long as the hoses and lines were intact and it had fluid in it you could steer but without the screws turning you had very little rudder authority. I also had twin screws so at low speed I could steer without the rudder at all, and frequently did, since I could put one screw in forward and one in reverse, along with varying their speed. I did have, during my time owning Gigabite, an electrical failure. It was not a big deal as it occurred during daytime (at night you obviously have no running lights which is serious); we made port without incident and I fixed it.

Modern emissions requirements make no-electric-required operation impossible. On a modern vessel without electrical power its engine shuts down because it is electronically controlled and the fuel pumps, conditioning equipment for the fuel, any after-treatment of the exhaust and various other required elements all require it, along with mechanical control being insufficiently precise to meet modern emissions standards. While I could operate with no electrical power at all provided the engines were running before the failure occurred this is not true for modern vessels and engines....."

FALL FROM GRACE Crypto kingpin Sam Bankman-Fried jailed for 25 years over historic $10bn FTX fraud as he admits ‘my useful life is over’

If by useful you mean shoveling money into the democrat party's maw I'd have to agree!



"Bankman-Fried sentenced to 25 years for multi-billion dollar FTX fraud"

A separate issue, but I have mixed feelings about prisons for financial fraud. It always seemed to me that there was something more appropriate for punishment.

Truth is, I'll bet you could mostly empty the places by doing something like:

. Let everyone out for use and possession (personal amounts) of drugs. I certainly don't care.
. Public caning/lashing for certain violent crimes rather than jail. I'll bet it would work better. Maybe add in multiple DUI, some drug dealing etc.
. Financial crimes are met with financial penalties. Force people to be poor in perpetuity if appropriate.
. Genuine violent crime goes to jail. As much to keep people off the street as it is punishment.

perhaps alternatives I'm not listing.

I realize how hard it would be (and probably then don't appreciate the magnitude) to redesign something that has organically grown for 100s of years, but use of prisons sure has metastasized.

As a side note, if you have capital punishment, it's on live TV. Nothing creepier than behind-the-scenes official state killing.

Lack of affordable housing is the major cause of our homeless crisis.

Capitalism is the major cause of our lack of affordable housing.

Why? Because there is no profit in affordable housing.

I suppose it's inevitable that a guy like Durkin would light in your neck of the woods .....plenty of places to get and be high....not many people around to complain if you are colorful. No "Street Sheet" to sell and certainly very few buyers in "Quainty Town" so the locals see to it that you get to blather in the local rag! I'm guessing that Tom much like our own C-Lyin is oblivious to the scandalous ....ahem ...upcharges associated with government sponsored housing construction. Not sure why Capitalism comes in for a kicking? Tom has probably never seen it in his lifetime! To be sure much like defense contracts there's plenty of "profit" in GovShak projects, it's just spread around a little differently but much of it still finds its way back to the "right" people!*

Oh well, the homeless industrial complex can be a tough dollar for it's practitioners and needs rather constant PR.

Besides profit opportunities, it also seems to be a source of strong opinions by the least experienced. A tolerably practical person, even given unlimited money, would probably fail at an attempt to 'correct' something like that...and there's probably as many reasons for living on the street as there are people.

No doubt you could try experiments and see if they work.

My own shot at the problem would be to encourage/subsidize the production of trailer parks, there ain't nothin' as cheap to build as that. I'd place them at the Rude Center, adjacent to social services/the sheriff/the jail, and deal with the problem of water in/shit out which any civilized society finds as it's Prime Directive.

If that miserably fails, you just end up with a gravel lot and some hook-ups. No harm, no foul (or not much hopefully).

Tells the control center to open the bay doors because he's leaving, to go back to the surface. When they are slow to do so, he opens them himself with a shrapnel-overpressure door-opener.

A very bad optic to be rollin with the jillionairs and the likes of lizzo with mass protests and ignoring a casualty on their war on law enforcement and recidivist encouragement DAs -

Never Trumper Bill Kristol lamented the bad optics for Democrats as President Joe Biden chose to go to a multi-million dollar fundraiser in New York City hosted by Hollywood celebrities while former President Donald Trump attended a wake for a young New York City police officer killed on duty.

“An unfortunate day politically for the Democrats,” Kristol posted on X.

“Biden does a fancy NYC fundraiser in the midst of chaotic left-wing street protests–looks like limousine liberalism plus the breakdown of law and order,” he added, referring to mass protests outside of the fundraiser by activists opposing the Biden administration’s support for Israel.

Megyn Kelly noted that even before the fundraiser, Biden chose to spend time on a podcast hosted by another celebrity.

“This is what Joe Biden did today rather than honor Officer Diller at his wake. Before he headed to his $25m campaign fundraiser. You know, Biden the caring, “well-meaning” nice guy. Unlike the evil Trump who spent the day … at the officer’s wake, meeting with his widow & extending condolences to their now-fatherless baby,” she posted on X.

Fresh from the White House news:
Children of the National Guard are prohibited from submitting religious Easter egg designs for the 2024 "Celebrating National Guard Families" art event at the White House.

The flyer for the contest states that an Easter egg design submission "must not include any questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements."

So the leftists have eliminated any reference to the most significant holyday of Christendom. Maybe they'll "make up" for it by having an Ilhan Omar Eid-roll the following week, to ensure Islam is not forgotten as one of the founding religions by our white, European country-founders.

Respondents were asked whether a series of statements were true or false. They were asked to evaluate whether “the man known to history as Jesus Christ actually existed and walked the earth,” or not.

By a margin of 83% to 5%, voters said they believe that Jesus Christ did in fact exist and walked the earth.

The margin of error for the survey was plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, according to Rasmussen.

In 2023, a WSJ/NORC poll found that the happiest people residing in the United States place greater value on religious belief than those who are unhappy in life, per Breitbart News:

The highest correlation for people saying they are “very happy” is belief in God, with 68 percent of this group declaring belief in God to be “very important” to them. By contrast, among those who are not happy, fewer than half (42 percent) say faith in God is very important to them.

Along with belief in God, the “very happy” overwhelmingly value strong relationships, and about 67 percent say marriage is very important to them, independent of their own marital status, compared with 43 percent of respondents overall.




"The flyer for the contest states that an Easter egg design submission "must not include any questionable content, religious symbols, overtly religious themes, or partisan political statements."

Well, of course not. Can't have that. I notice that the childrens' book authors all toe the party line, but that's probably nothing new for invitees. Can't have too many kid books on Rosa Parks or Ruth Bader Ginsburg or strong wimmen engineers.

My favorite part of the White House website on this Easter Egg 'non political' event is the memory holing going on. Per archive.org, the web page is fairly standardized. Up through the end of the Trump administration, all old event webpages, regardless of administration, are referenced via the web archive. When you hit the Biden administration, they only have links to the events up through Obama. It's as if Trump was never President.

I'll bet if Biden wins again, the official Trump portraits will disappear. It's like chiseling faces off of statues in ancient times.


I mean, seriously, this is genius.

"Biden Proclaims Easter Sunday ‘Transgender Day of Visibility’"

That Western Civilization ain't gonna tear down itself.


James Lindsay on the 'Transgender Day of Visibility'.

"I have a feeling this is going to go really badly for me, but it has to be said. The dynamic must be explained.

Yesterday, on Good Friday, one of the high holy days of the Christian faith, the Biden Administration proclaimed Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024 *specifically* to be a "trans day of visibility." The official White House press release page shows an Easter Bunny by the White House, indicating they are fully aware that they are making this proclamation specifically about Easter Sunday, even though Easter is not specifically mentioned in the proclamation.

This isn't just an insult to the Christian faith, and indeed an intolerable one that proclaims a form of embodied Gnostic theosophy that misleads and destroys kids. It is entirely consistent with Woke Theosophy, as I've discussed elsewhere and may attach here as a thread, but it is more than that. It is also a deliberate provocation against Christians that must be understood.




The target's reaction is your real action.

Co-opting Easter for a trans day disgusts me, and I'm not Christian. Shame on Biden and Company.


re: Gregory@1:10

Ah well. The counter-argument will be that the Transgender Day of Visibility was always on Mar 31 and that Easter isn't always. Naturally, it's all the Rethuglicans and MAGAts raisin' a ruckus.

Lotta trans days though.

Transgender Day of Visibility (Mar 31)
Transgender Empowerment Month (Nov)
Transgender Awareness Week (Nov 11 - 19)
Transgender Day of Remembrance (Nov 20)
Transgender History Month (Aug)

Shame on Biden and Company.

They possess no capacity for shame.

Just one? -




All the transgender surgeries come at the expense of gays and lesbians, and folks signing up for them will be hooked on big pharma for the hormones their new sexual personae require until they die which will not be as long as they'd otherwise have on this Earth.

For shame.

The media coverage of polls that show President Biden lagging behind former President Trump appears to be getting under the president’s skin.



The Estonian Fox

The owners of the ill-fated bridge-destroyer ship DALI have said they will be hard pressed to meet the tuition payments for the rising-sophomore ship at the UC of LA. They have appealed to the president (I believe that's Joe Biden) to cover those costs.

He replied "Like hell I will". Whereupon KJP whispered "it's an election year". To which Joe immediately said "I'ze jus' be kiddin' folks. We gots plenty of cash to cover it."

It's all for the children.

Trump is getting more and more "out there" with his rants, threats, personal attacks - kind of like Gregory.

I think he needs a psychiatric time out at the funny farm...
...but it could be a scheme to get himself thrown in jail.

That way when he loses, and he knows he will, he will have an excuse...

The Deep State did it!!!

Come on ya gotta sign these before you get the pudding cup and your nap -

House Speaker Mike Johnson has doubts over whether President Biden fully understood what he was doing when he issued a proclamation declaring March 31, the same day as Easter this year, as Transgender Day of Visibility.

When asked during the White House Easter Egg Roll Monday about Johnson claiming on X that Biden – who is reputed devout Catholic – "betrayed" Easter tenets, the president accused the speaker of being "thoroughly uninformed" before retorting "I didn't do that."

However, the presidential document reads in part "I, Joseph R. Biden Jr… do hereby proclaim March 31, 2024 as Transgender Day of Visibility."

Johnson pointed out out the discrepancy in an interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity Monday and suggested the controversy is another indication of questions about the president's mental acuity.

"[I]t's highly possible that he doesn't even know what he's signing," he added. "[T]hat might be even more alarming."

"[I]t's highly possible that he doesn't even know what he's signing," he added. "[T]hat might be even more alarming."

Nahh….not more alarming….more entertaining. Like old M. A. S. H. reruns where Henry Blake signs whatever Radar put on the desk in front of him. In one episode he gave a lamb a discharge from the army so it wouldn’t end up as dinner!

A perfect thumbnail for progressivism.

(But I understand why Punchy likes him….)

Godspeed Lou Conter!
