    Political Humor

    Brad lives in California..... He was sick of the world, of Covid-19, Trump, Russian belligerence, China, global warming, racial tensions, and the rest of the disturbing stories that occupy media headlines. Brad drove his car into his garage and then sealed every doorway and window as best he could. He got back into his car and wound down all the windows, selected his favorite radio station, started the car, and revved it to a slow idle. Two days later, a worried neighbor peered through his garage window and saw him in the car. She notified the emergency services and they broke in, pulling Brad from the car. A little sip of water and, surprisingly, he was in perfect condition, but his Tesla had a dead battery. Brad is a registered California Democrat. (It was not necessary to add this, but we did anyway).
  6. Last week
  7. We've been pretty lucky with a temperate Winter so far in SEK, but the weatherman says there's snow on the way...
  8. Ditto, as I suspected it was ruled an overreach of Biden's presidential authority... Since the post I've also read both Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Joe Manchin, D-W.Va have stated they oppose lowering the 60-vote filibuster threshold to more easily pass the Democrat federal voting rights bill... also something I believe is the right decision. The U.S. Constitution strictly limits the federal government's powers when it comes to it's influence on elections and reserves those rights to the individual states... I see the Democrat's attempt to kill the filibuster and pass federalized voting laws as little more than a federal power grab from the states and worse an alteration of the powers and limitations of the federal government specifically given by the Constitution, without consensus or ratification from the states or the people. Biden even stated that he doubted he had the presidential authority to pass federal Covid mandates which is why he attempted to do the initial end run, bypassing Congress by having OSHA impose the mandates and when that didn't work he even (not too wisely) stated he's going to go ahead and try it because by the time it gets court review it would be done - or something like that. ... too tired to try to find Biden's statement right now.

  10. Have any idea what desperation looks like? Apparently someone posted on an anti-vaxxer site that recycling (drinking) a person's own urine can cure or stave off the Coronavirus... Granted there are a lot of gullible and ignorant people out there but c'mon man. There have been suggestions from a lot of people, celebrities, psudo-scientists, etc. about drinking pee for everything from losing weight to strengthening immune systems. Apparently the theory some hold to is that a lot of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients the body failed to absorb before they were excreted can be recycled by drinking urine... Here's my thought - Take another One-A-Day, Eat another Kale and Blueberry salad, Drink more Water (yes, actual water), instead of recycling your own pee... For one along with the minerals, vitamins and stuff your body didn't absorb before they were excreted there are also a lot of toxic and harmful things you body also excretes in urine - people are re-ingesting those things too, but anyone who put any actual thought into what they were doing should have been able to figure that out on their own. Secondly and I'm addressing the "believe the science" crowd (like Madonna, et al'), there is no actual scientific evidence that ingesting one's own urine has any health benefits, as a matter of fact modern scientific evidence from actual Dr's say just the opposite. I get the whole "The vaccine was rushed without proper testing" and "There could be long term ill-effects no one has discovered yet"... I do, still if anyone opposes the vaccines - don't get the vaccine - chances are the person that's going to suffer the most is yourself. That being said let's try not to suggest a risky, untested course of action that may have detrimental long term effects because we've rejected what might be thought of as another risky, untested course of action that may have detrimental long term effects.
  11. Associated Press: Supreme Court halts COVID-19 vaccine rule for US businesses WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court has stopped the Biden administration from enforcing a requirement that employees at large businesses be vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing and wear a mask on the job. At the same time, the court is allowing the administration to proceed with a vaccine mandate for most health care workers in the U.S. The court’s orders Thursday during a spike in coronavirus cases was a mixed bag for the administration’s efforts to boost the vaccination rate among Americans. The court's conservative majority concluded the administration overstepped its authority by seeking to impose the vaccine-or-test rule on U.S. businesses with at least 100 employees. More than 80 million people would have been affected.
  12. Just a few things I thought wrong with Biden's speech in Atlanta... Dr. King wanted EQUAL treatment and consideration for people of all races... Biden etal' have been asking for, and trying to get special and definitely not equal treatment and consideration for people of color. In regards to George Wallace: It’s worth noting that the only person in modern American politics to have repeatedly praised Wallace and other segregationists is Joe Biden. It was Biden who bragged that in 1973 Wallace considered him “one of the outstanding young politicians of America.” It was Biden who wrote in 1975 that the “Democratic Party could stand a liberal George Wallace.” It was Biden who in 1981 told a black witness in the Senate that “sometimes even George Wallace is right.” It was Biden who, while campaigning for the presidency in Alabama in 1987, claimed that he’d been the recipient of an award from Wallace in 1973 (it probably wasn’t true; but what a thing to brag about!), and then boasted that Delaware was “on the South’s side in the Civil War.” John Lewis: was a Democrat statesman and civil rights activist who served in the United States House of Representatives for Georgia's 5th congressional district from 1987 until his death in 2020... Theophilus Eugene "Bull" Connor was a Democrat politician who served as Commissioner of Public Safety for the city of Birmingham, Alabama, for more than two decades, he strongly opposed the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s I did mention Bull Connor was also a Democrat didn't I? Last but not least... Abraham Lincoln was a Republican - Jefferson Davis was a Democrat ... Biden: “Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace? Do you want to be on the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be on the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis?”
  13. Even "your car warranty has expired" would be something!
  14. Do whatever you feel you need to do to keep others and especially yourselves safe - And if you're filling sick - STAY HOME! - and seek medical advice.
  15. Err... 'untrained' canine. There are some fairly well trained pooches out there who tend to follow simple instructions pretty well.
  16. No big surprise that they didn't check in. That's sort of like trusting your dog to watch your sandwich for you.
  17. FOX: More than 47,000 migrants released into US by Biden admin in 2021 failed to report to ICE In a letter to Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., the Department of Homeland Security disclosed that out of 104,171 migrants issued Notices to Report – which requires migrants released into the U.S. to report to an ICE office within 60 days – between the end of March and the end of August, 47,705 failed to report within that timeframe. Office of the Secretary U.S. Department of Homeland Security Washington Between March 21, 2021 (the start of the NTR program) and August 31, 2021, there were 104,171 noncitizens released with an NTR. Of these noncitizens: • 49,859 checked-in with ICE (37,161 checked-in within 60 days, and 12,698 checked-in after 60 days). • 47,705 did not check-in with ICE and it was greater than 60 days. • 6,607 did not check-in with ICE and were still within 60 days.
  18. For months we've been listening too liberals like AOC complaining about Florida and their lack of restrictions... Some of those same people want to get away from the restrictive COVID policies of their own states and recreate, where's one of the places they've been going? It's even somewhat as a living, evolving meme of sorts now... FOX: DeSantis jokes about Dems from strict COVID states visiting Florida after AOC spotted maskless in Miami "If I had a dollar for every lockdown politician who decided to escape to Florida over the last two years, I’d be a pretty doggone wealthy man, let me tell you," DeSantis joked. "I mean, Congress people, mayors, governors, I mean you name it." DeSantis specifically pointed to governors of states with strict policies who had spent time in the Sunshine State. "There are probably about a half dozen governors who had restrictions on their people and then were spotted at various points in Florida. Some of it’s been public, some of it‘s not been public, but you know people tell me these things," he said.
  19. I'm guessing that photo is just the table off contents...
  20. Can't always depend on "guest" count. There's a chance at least some - if not all those numbers are bots, software constructs jumping in and out of sites on the web attempting to drop their "Your car warranty has expired...", "We caN maKe yoU HARdER", "Congratulations you've just one a free $50 Macy's gift card" (or whatever) stuff on various websites. At least that's my suspicion. What we need is more word of mouth, real people talking to other real people and offering them a platform to talk about local stuff important to them. But then we're also competing with other social media platforms too so you're guess would be as good as mine as to how successful any effort would be.
  21. Saw this news article that vaccinations are up sharply (from 1,500 per day to 6,000) in Quebec as vaccine passports will be required for entry to liquor an cannibis stores starting next week. https://montreal.ctvnews.ca/first-dose-vaccinations-quadruple-in-quebec-ahead-of-restrictions-at-liquor-and-cannabis-stores-1.5731327?fbclid=IwAR2Ka_HmrbzCwgPj_b1TDA8PdT3sAHafx3cOyPUzkieJaqEFOj_82aJWNtk
