You Like It, You Love It, You Want Some More Of It

Since you guys don’t have the attention span for my amazing video choices
you get……memes.

This is what I’m wearing Friday night…yeah, it’s business time.
yeah, sorry Michigan Hostages…I just had to.
This place is in the next town over from me. J.C. Penneys was right by there, so naturally, by default, I hated J.C. Penneys when I was growing up…why? because kid logic. These people scared the hell out of me. As an adult, I can see they’re harmless, but they do like to make awkwardly long eye contact.

  1. Niece is getting a heart transplant as we speak. The donor heart was a match, thank goodness. Now just waiting to hear how everything went.

  2. I wonder how the gal who looks like a caricature of something stupid is doing?

    Also, why would Alex choose Japanese as a minor?

  3. What a day for your niece, Teresa. Prayers up.

  4. Dear Michigan, why did you vote for someone who has a creepy fake look and an evil stare? This is generally a hint about what’s in their heart and how they will govern.

  5. Organ transplants are quite miraculous when you think about it. From the mechanical aspects of “How do I get this living heart into the new person successfully” to the medications to deal with rejection.

    https://unos.org/transplant/history/

    Remarkable when you realize the first kidney transplant was in 1954. Now 66 years later they’re transplanting much more. Hopefully there’s major progress made in anti-rejection drugs and 3D printed organs before 2054.

  6. Organs from the patient’s own DNA would be the holy grail of transplants, perfect match every time, no rejection issues. And we may get there in our lifetimes, if some bunch of stoopid fuckers don’t wreck the world first.

  7. wakey wakey

  8. St Jude – I will read what your wrote to my son. I’m on call all day for when he needs me to go down there and look at his options.

    We got the creepy governor because the dems/media loved her and the Republican candidate was HORRIBLE.

    “My source tells me that we are talking here about underage Chinese girls.”

    I heard the underage girls part, it’s sort of old news from a couple of days ago. If they are Chinese (not to diminish the underage aspect of it) we are suddenly talking about Joe being at the mercy of the ChiComs and not able to push back at them at all.

    This is actually exactly what he’s doing. He’s making silly noises about universal brotherhood and accommodation, but his intent (or the intention of the devil when he whispers sweetly into Jorge’s ear) is to split the church, with those who believe in all the church teaches walking into schism while the antipope runs the real thing as a Latin-spouting arm of the UN.

  20. Basically, he’s daring the bishops who know he’s a heretic to walk away and make new Sedevacantists or American/African/Philipino Orthodox churches while he remakes the Church itself into an even gayer Episcopalian endeavor.

  21. I read about the antipopes in history while I was in RCIA and I thought about how awful that must have been to live through. Never expected I’d be “lucky” enough to see it with my own eyes.

    But it is 2020 which, ironically, means that all the masks are coming off.

  22. Matthew 12:51

    Jesus said:

    45 Know and understand this: From the time the word goes out to restore and rebuild America, a golden maned hero shall walk among you.

  23. I know that’s a fake bible quote because the verse number in the header doesn’t match the verse number in the quote.

    Besides, we all know OrangeManBad is actually in the oldest of religious texts.

  24. “The Auspicious One”

    Change my mind.

  25. Also, Matthew 12 is only 50 verses long. Yes, I had to look that up.

  26. Just for fun:

  27. No, we are not to go along to get along.

    It’s okay to be divided. Even families.

  28. But our stance has the Bible on doctrine on our side. The Pope doesn’t.

  29. Dafuq did I get a Susan Collins ad on YouTube app for?!? I’m in Alabama!

  30. We declare Benedict to still be Pope, and Jorge and everything about him was all a mistake. Problem solved.

    Today is JP2’s feast day, so I’m focusing on that.

  31. Susan Collins is facing a massive effort to get a Dem in to replace her and flip the Senate. The Dems have Sara Gideon, a horrendous up-talker as a candidate and they’re pouring millions of dollars into the race. Collins is being outraised 5:1 and the Dems are mounting a nation wide campaign against her. Collins’ most recent ad states that Gideon has more donors from Portland, OR than Portland, ME.

  32. Collins did what we needed her to with Gang Rapist Brett.

    I hope she pulls it out.

  33. First time I’ve ever chipped in for Collins campaign is this year. The incentive was the nonstop attack ads beginning LAST YEAR. Even before the Dem primary was over. Gideon did not even debate the other Dem candidates.

    https://freebeacon.com/2020-election/after-dodging-dem-primary-debate-sara-gideon-participates-in-private-pac-fundraiser/

    Collins is a squish but more often than not she votes the way we need her to, especially on crucial issues. I’m hoping her vote for ACB will either be Yes or at least an abstention so as not to make it anymore tenuous. Gideon is a swamp creature, typical politician who lies as easily as she breathes.

    Dude! They wear those too!!! I used to work at a sub shop close by there and they’d come in and order…….and just look into your eyes. You had to like dismiss them. Having worked in special ed long enough, I can see now that perhaps some of them are on the spectrum somewhere.

    also, next door to that sub shop was an adult bookstore called “F” Street. We watch this construction company owner dude, big company, dude was rich af. Every day he’d stand outside the bookstore with a Pepsi and wait til this kid, maybe in his early 20s would show up. He’d give the dude the Pepsi and they’d head into the store to I can only guess was the little movie booths in the back that showed porn for a quarter and always smelled of lysol.
    Construction dude was married to a woman, btw

  35. How did you know what the booths smelled like?

  36. They are doing the same thing against Ernst here in Iowa. All the Republicans voting Democrat are in vogue, along with how Teresa Greenfield will work with anyone! to appeal to rural Iowa voters. Lots of money from out of state.

    Ernst is taking away social security. Ernst is writing bills to allow insurance companies to remove people from insurance because of pre-existing conditions. Ernst doesn’t live in Iowa any more.

  38. My ex wife was suckered in by a similar cult like organization called Landmark Education.

    https://www.landmarkworldwide.com/

    Probably more mainstream than the space cadets next to the combination Sub Shop – Porn Emporium. Way back early in my practice I was working 6 to 7 days and on Sunday she would host them for a meeting. A few women and soy boys who would do things like make collages from magazines and draw pictures to get in touch with their feelings. During football season I would just turn the sound up and have to pretend they weren’t there. This is conjuring up some unpleasant memories and serves as an explanation for why I waited so long to tie the knot again.

  39. If only we had a real media, actually concerned about news

    @rbpundit on twitter: ….aaaaaand now we know why Biden hid in his bunker for the last four days.

  40. Gee, why was the foreign policy debate removed?

    Oh….

  41. Hunter OD’s in about 6-7 hours by my reckoning. He and Joe are probably having a catch or something before it has to happen.

  42. Any bets if the debate happens?

  43. having a catch, heh, that’s awesome.

    The line that pisses everyone off in Field of Dreams

  44. It may or may not be a fatal OD, but Joe will have to drop out to take care of his son, who was so distraught over all the right-wing attacks and Trump’s lockdowns and failures with The Virus that he may have been trying to take his own life.

  45. If Biden’s people have given up on him winning, the debate will happen and my scenario will not occur.

    My narrative is Biden’s best hope for victory.

  46. All the Republicans voting Democrat are in vogue, along with how Teresa Greenfield will work with anyone! to appeal to rural Iowa voters. Lots of money from out of state.

    Same playbook for Doug Jones here

  47. Recruiter: Son, are you ready to sign on the dotted line? Serve your country? Travel the world?

    Son: I just need to ask my mom.

  48. The person leading this work seminar is so damn perky, I want to reach through the internet and slap her.

  49. I minored in Japanese because I had already taken a couple classes for my language requirement and the minor only required two or three more.

  50. Same playbook for Doug Jones here

    But but but, it’s all grassroots!

    Stupid dems.

  53. So, Texas marching band not playing Eyes of Texas this weekend.

    Austin is way different than the rest of Texas. I don’t see this going over very well with most Longhorns.

  54. Son: I just need to ask my mom.

    Merv has a story about when he was in Marine Corps Boot Camp and this ex-gf of his decides to show up (I think it was on a Sunday) out of the blue, he didn’t even know she knew he was in bootcamp. Turns out, she’d gone to his parents’ house and they told her he was in bootcamp right now.
    and his higher-ups were like, hey Merv you and your buddy come show your friend around.
    And Merv and his buddy were like oooh fuuuuuuuuu because they knew this wasn’t some genuine invitation to hang out with her. They knew they were in a no win situation.
    They declined and their superiors were like oh no, no no, you need to take her around and show her the base, she went out of her way to come out here. (obviously this was well before 9/11)
    Soooo, they took her around and I can’t remember whether she wanted to go to the Jack in the Box on the base, or whether the higherups said they should take her. She ate, they didn’t touch any food. They knew they were gonna be in soooo much trouble.

    After she left, they got called over and were dreading it.
    I messaged him just now to remind me what the punishment was
    he responded “the punishment part is too long to type out. It was fucking brutal.” Something about staying on his knees for hoooours and saying “the 10 general orders
    repeatedly after 500 jumping jacks”

  55. The Doug Jones ads here are a laugher. All these people talking about how he helped them, how he brought the bacon to Alabama…in other words, “Doug Jones did the minimum expected as a Senator for Alabama! Vote for Doug Jones!” Pathetic. I think he’s been written off.

  56. I think Greenfield takes out Ernst here, but you know me, Mr. Pessimist.

  57. How did you know what the booths smelled like?

    Someone needed to clean them and the money was good?

  58. It’s interesting……lysol has a smell that permeates, even to the buildings next door. It’s a crazy strong smell

  59. That’s deliberate, it’s meant to overpower other… odors.

  60. yeah, it’s nasty. really, really, stomach churning, nasty. That place just stunk

  61. I made the mistake of attending my actual company’s “All Hands” meeting this morning.

    Did you know that the age cohort with the greatest number of excess deaths is 18-44! It isn’t just killing the old and the infirm! Continue to panic.

    Uh, yeah, about that…

  62. Heh, rush’s new ACTUAL twitter account nails a new name for Sleepy Joe: Buy-den

  63. I wonder how many democrats are going to regret early voting.

  64. Early voters don’t care. They’re the cogs in the machine that vote D no matter what.

  65. I wonder how many democrats are going to regret early voting.

    Dude, a democrat votes democrat. It wouldn’t matter if they voted early or are the last one in when the polls close. They vote democrat.

    Are they talking about COVID? Because that’s just not correct.

  71. Ahhh, I see, Alex.

  72. I voted early in person.

    Fast and pleasant. Even with 6 feet distancing and masks (eye roll), It felt really good to vote for Trump. Not the whorish sensation I felt voting for McCain and Romney. Not as many stupid propositions this year either.

  73. Over the last 2 days, 49 covid deaths in Iowa. That would tie the largest total per day, since the beginning.

    This is bullshit.

  74. Teresa, any update on your niece?

    When Hotspur says he listens to NPR, I always have the urge to punch him in the poon. This is an example of why. NPR was only good for the Car Guys.

  77. Over the last 2 days, 49 covid deaths in Iowa.

    Crock of shit.

  78. Firstly, Florida has 22 million people, we are generally open and we have fewer deaths than that.

    Secondly, Iowa’s numbers are bullshit.

  79. Mare, I listen to NPR because I need to know what my democrat friends are being brainwashed with.

    When they spout off some bullshit talking point, it helps to know where they got it.

    I don’t have the luxury of having conservative friends.

  80. Welp, the Amazing Randi now knows the truth about the paranormal. A pity he can’t tell anyone… (RIP James Randi)

  81. I know that feeling, HS. The only time I have with conservatives is when I’m home, either at my house or mom’s.

  82. I have four conservative friends. One lives 2 1/2 hours away in Grand Rapids, one lives in Ann Arbor but she’s gone a lot (inherited an office park in Alton, IL), and two live in FL.

    Two of my daughters are conservative and so are their husbands, but we don’t hang out with them very much. My other daughter lives with a trans dude.

  83. I mean, she’s nice and all that, and the “guy” is nice, but we don’t exactly have a lot to talk about.

  84. I found out my BiL is a Trump supporter, but we haven’t had a chance to talk about it. I knew I liked that guy when I first met him, nice to have the intuition rewarded 16 years later.

  85. This is the guy that married my sister, not one of my wife’s brothers.

  90. I really liked James last time around. Gave to his campaign and I think my husband gave this year. He’s a good guy and I hope he can pull this off.

    Unfortunately most of my hobbies involve lots of left-wing types.

  93. MI hostages, is James gonna win this round for Senate? He seems pretty good.

    Fingers crossed. Peters has had to resort to buying a LOT of yootoob ad time, and looks to be behind. No weed on the ballot this time, and Trump coattails are a genuine possibility.

  94. Work has been a bear lately. I can’t even tell you what a disaster our administrators have been, through this covid thing. It’s frustrating.

  95. My family is conservative except for a sister who is nuts. She says stuff like “I need to go to Alaska before all the polar bears are dead.”

    LOL

    My husband’s family has a few lefties and they are also nuts. I don’t mean that in a joking way, I mean that like, one is getting ECTs and when we were eating Chinese food one night my husband said, “At least the Chinese got something right” and she threw down her fork and said, “I better leave.”

    LOLOL

    An aside, we bought all the food and she had to go to the Chinese restaurant with my husband because she had to have something special-not family style. And when I mentioned it’s nice you’ll have leftovers for lunch the next day (on us- which I didn’t say) she said, “I don’t eat leftovers!”

    Huh?

  96. Unfortunately most of my hobbies involve lots of left-wing types.

    Which honestly makes no sense. I don’t get how anyone does a remotely honest survey of matters historical and comes away as anything but a borderline right-wing* nutcase.

    I listen mostly on the hour for the news segment so I know what the leftie spin on popular news stories. When talk radio cuts to commercials I’ll flip to it for the laughs. They are beyond parody. Today they were teasing a segment on “former Trump voters” who are now voting for Biden. No shows covering the Walk Away Movement or former Dems voting for Trump. If they’re mentioned it’s to deride them for their temporary insanity.

  107. And then when I mention the google exec, on hidden camera, talking about how they manipulate algorithms, etc, and how being a Trump supporter will get you canned, he’s all ….’sounds like he may have an axe to grind’.

    Um, did you even listen to the clip? I can’t even.

  108. When I first got together with Paula she was apolitical. Just busy being a mom for 2 young boys and working full time. After 12 years together, finishing nursing school and seeing the crap society creates in the ER on a regular basis she is increasingly conservative. Being around me may have had some effect as well.

    She has never voted in any election. The other day, after hearing what seemed like the 20th Sara Gideon commercial she said “I’m registering to vote. Susan Collins needs my vote.” After she graduated HS she worked for a cleaning company and one of the houses was Collins’ house. She said it was a small house, modest in size and not in a super ritzy neighborhood. Gideon bought a seaside mansion.

    This is exactly what the left is guilty of – living in an echo chamber.

    At some point I have to say I listened to both sides, and my opinion is XYZ. If I’ve never listened to another side, I am as arrogant and close minded as they are.

  114. are you a spicy fan? I think not.

    Buy a mild rub, and put plenty on the pork butt. Get a bottle of beer (no, not kidding) and use that as cooking liquid. You don’t need the whole thing, but it won’t hurt.

    If not into buying a rub, use salt, pepper, garlic powder. Throw in other seasonings you like. Lawry’s is good.

    Cook it all day, shred it when you get home.

    I don’t belong to the “your truth” crowd. Either something is the truth or it isn’t.

    And it is impossible NOT to hear the other side. All news channels, media, NPR, print news, movies, twitter, facebook, Instagram are all lefty organizations. How do you not hear the other side? You don’t have to go looking for it.

  117. Deer are notorious rose eaters also. But pooping in the garden is the last straw.

  118. venison steaks at Chez Laura?

    Okay everybody. If you ever want to know anything all you need to do is ask Mare.

  121. Cook it all day, shred it when you get home.

    Thanks Jay. Cook it all day like how many hours usually?
    Friend of ours recommended Blues Hog or Famous Dave’s rub.

  122. OH, and a can of beer is all the liquid I need in the crockpot?

  123. I listen to the other side and it scares hell out of me.

  124. clarify a pound or two of butter and make carnitas.

  125. a can of beer is all. There will be PLENTY of liquid by the time you are done.

    How long you got? I’ve put things in the crock pot (before I got a smoker, which is really just a big crock pot with better flavor and worse temp control) when I leave for work, and get back 10-12 hours later.

  126. Alex, you mentioned brown butter in a recipe about a month or so ago and I’ve seen brown butter in dozens of recipes since then. It looks like brown butter is in vogue now

  127. 10-12 hours if it’s indeed a pork butt. As in Shoulder, the one with the bone inside. a pork ROAST might be different, and you can’t cook it as long.

  128. Here’s a website that backs me up:

    http://ourfullplate.com/recipes/crock-pot/holy-moly-pork-shoulder-crock-pot-goodness/

  129. I have never used brown butter.

  130. I hope John James wins in MI, and I did my part as an interfering out-of-stater.

    I also hope Kim Klacik wins in Baltimore and sends Kweisi Mfume home.

    Mare, what are ECTs?

  131. Alex, you mentioned brown butter in a recipe about a month or so ago and I’ve seen brown butter in dozens of recipes since then. It looks like brown butter is in vogue now

    Heh, not surprising.

  132. ACB unanimously voted out of committee!

    Yes, 12-0. So what if dems weren’t there?

  133. Dad gave me his smoker, and I should try that out soon. I talked about smoking a turkey for Thanksgiving (the store was SOLD OUT of turkeys!) and Mr. RFH has already made the required joke about keeping it lit.

  134. I’ve got 10-12 hours and it is indeed a butt of pork.
    I’m going out later to see if I can locate the rubs mentioned above. Our friend usually smokes his butt SYWM and he’s given us some he froze up after cooking. Whatever seasoning he used – one or the other – was really good.

  135. you will love smoked turkey. Oven is free for other things, and you can get a YUGE turkey in there. Plus it tastes better. Everything does.

  136. I don’t think the seasoning specifically matters, just get something on there. I prefer my rub (on the recipe site, I think). Lots of good stuff in there.

  137. I recently used the rubs that SOMEONE shipped from Maine for Secret Satan a couple years ago (they got moved to the back of the cupboard, sorry). The mild is really sweet, lots of sugar in that one, and the spicy needed spice help, but I’m used to hot. Not like leon, but still like some spicy.

  138. I saw the clip Trump leaked of him and whatsherface from 60 minutes talking about Biden corruption. Stahl was all ‘but it’s not verified’.
    Frustrated because Trump didn’t mention how Biden’s lawyer called/emailed to get it back and didn’t point out how 60 Minutes used to do investigative reporting and could have talked to Giuliani and talked to Biden and could have done a report on the very much media pushed unverified Russia hoax.

  139. I don’t care for spicy.

  140. >>>could have done a report on the very much media pushed unverified Russia hoax.

    As in report on how it was a hoax and how breathtakingly corrupt the FBI is.

    Where is the RNC? Are they helping him?

  142. Spicy doesn’t sell in Maine

  143. LOL I just watched Trump’s interview.

    He is a fucking genius releasing the video.

  144. Hotspur, but will the general public see it?

  145. Jimbro,
    WTF does this mean?

    Left hand:
    There is no acute fracture. There is no dislocation. There is moderate to severe first CMC osteoarthritis. There is moderate distal radioulnar joint osteoarthritis. There is multifocal interphalangeal joint osteoarthritis, moderate to severe at the fifth DIP joint. Bone mineralization is normal.
    Soft tissues are unremarkable.

    Right hand:
    There is no acute fracture. There is no dislocation. There is moderate
    first CMC osteoarthritis. There is multifocal interphalangeal joint
    osteoarthritis, moderate at the fifth DIP joint. The bone mineralization
    is normal. The soft tissues are unremarkable.

  146. Ugh. Quotes through my grapevine on a possible new engine were still in the 1.5-2k range so I started looking for a used vehicle…holy crap. I may actually be better off trying to get the engine done! Probably less hassle on finances too. (Complicated there by my lack of residence at the moment…)

    Feels like my life just gets more SNAFU every damn week.

  147. “American Universities failed to report $6.5 billion in foreign gifts and contracts, an investigation by the Department of Education found.

    Federal law requires schools to disclose substantial foreign gifts and contracts to the Department of Education (DOE) twice a year. Many have for years failed to do so, while others severely underreported the income. The deluge of the financial disclosures poured in as the department opened investigations into 12 elite universities.”..

    ..The vast majority of the foreign funds went to America’s largest and most prestigious universities, which have received billions of dollars through a bevy of intermediaries, according to a report released by the DOE on Oct. 20 All of the institutions involved are in the meantime dependent on tens of billions of U.S. taxpayer subsidies while operating largely “divorced from any sense of obligation to our taxpayers or concern for our American national interests, security, or values,” the DOE report states.”

    But, yeah, let’s go after Hollywood celebs for low-ball greasing palms to get their kids into college, while none of the ‘elite’ institutions don’t even get fined for nondisclosure of shady dealings with CCP and others.

  148. If everything else is good on the truck, I’d go with the repairs, instead of a used car. no sense introducing new problems.

  149. Does new puppet smell smell anything like lysol?
    I’m asking for, well, myself really

  150. Have you priced rebuilt, or used? Salvage yards?

  151. Smells like dirty porn booth, I’m told.

  152. Hotspur, but will the general public see it?

    Unlikely. But 60 Minutes would have turned it into a hit job, and now Trump has snookered them.

    I imagine they’ll put out some snarky prologue before airing it to the ten people who still watch 60M. (Including Mare who can’t escape them.)

  153. Looking through options now. Figure once I have $1k aside I can narrow things down. Just tired of a new complication every time I have a plan, my friend who’s been transporting will be opening at his new job…at 5:30am. Which, still happy for him, but I’m back to square one again now.

  154. Beasn, I saw that yesterday…..thankfully that’s not my district, but it’s freaking ridiculous

  155. Side point, if my life were a soap opera, it would get canceled for being shitty and boring. I can’t even get the sexy problems…

  156. Let’s make a list of things that are not rayciss. I’ll start.

    1) Fried Chicken.

  157. Hol up

  158. Remember when trump invited Clinton’s women detractors (Brodderick, Tripp, etc) to the debate?

    Tony Bobulinski to be
    @realDonaldTrump
    special guest at tonight’s debate

  159. Ethan should be giving his oath right now.

  160. MOS – CTT. But he’s going for Seals first. But you have to have another “job”.

  161. Smart choice. The clearance alone is very nice to have when you get out.

  162. Tony Bobulinski to be
    @realDonaldTrump
    special guest at tonight’s debate
    =========

    Savage!

  163. That right there is why women let him grab them by the pussy.

  164. The James race is definitely going to be one to watch. Yes, he has a chance.

  165. sounds interesting, Car in! Congrats to Ethan!

    Must have been public school that got him there. I’m assured those homeschool kids are weird.

  166. They told us that he fails out of Seals, they take CTT guys and attach them to seal units … and guys who made it through portions of seal whatever are better prepared.

  167. Sounds like they were impressed, and want to keep him!

  168. Failing out of BUDS isn’t like most failures. Only the best of the best of the best make it through that.

  169. I know – we’ve told him. I’m thinking I should start waking him a 3 am for road runs to toughen him up

  170. I know – we’ve told him. I’m thinking I should start waking him a 3 am for road runs to toughen him up

    3am swim in the lake followed by a run.

  171. Followed by a math test.

  172. Have him start working on his bullshit workout to sell once he’s out.

  173. That’s hyuge.

  174. wow, Biden is in TN. I’m shocked hes going through with this.

  175. Unlikely. But 60 Minutes would have turned it into a hit job, and now Trump has snookered them.

    ——-
    Exactly,
    The only conservative who knows how to play offense.

  176. Mitt Romney’s response:

    Sir, may I have another!!

  177. Is it normal for $6-7k to be the floor for a decent used vehicle? Just curious, I haven’t been in the market for quite a while.

  178. Niece was out of surgery around 8:45 am; last I heard, she was in the Cardio Critical Care unit under heavy sedation with tubes and wires everywhere, which is common. Heart is beating with some assistance, which is also common right after a heart transplant.

    Should know more over the next few days, but right now she is doing as well as can be expected with a new, working heart.

    Thanks for all of your prayers!

  179. Congrats to Ethan!

  180. Saw a great campaign with in our neighborhood today:
    Brisket Ribs 2020

  181. Good to hear, Teresa.

    I just can’t imagine going through a heart transplant.

  182. Stupid Aikman should have got his story to align with Buck’s.

  183. Prayers up for TiFW’s niece.

  184. I have Star Trek TNG on in the background. It’s the California planet episode. How much this series would have changed and how unknown might Wil Wheaton be if they had executed Wesley.

  185. Just ordered a new American flag.

    It will be the 7th in our patriotic neighborhood.

  186. That’s normal, Tim. New cars and trucks are ridiculous anymore, and we still have a depleted inventory from the Cash for Clunkers era. Add dollar devaluation and used cars cost a lot more than they used to.

    I remember when you could buy a “Used Vega — Runs Good” for $200.

  187. Carin, despite my snarky remark earlier, (you know I was just trying to needle you), a heartfelt High Five to Ethan.

    Anchor’s Aweigh, young man.

  188. Left hand:
    There is no acute fracture. There is no dislocation. There is moderate to severe first CMC osteoarthritis. There is moderate distal radioulnar joint osteoarthritis.

    Pretty common description for an older adult’s hand films.

    -The interphalangeal joint arthritis is just from living long enough to have arthritis. It’s pretty common. Stiff, sometimes painful finger motion during activity.

    -The left hand DRUJ arthritis is not as common. Maybe left over from an old injury or just unlucky to have it. Pain at the wrist during certain wrist motions like forearm rotation or ulnar deviation especially while lifting objects.

    -Both hands have CMC joint arthritis which is also common and annoying. Think about how much you use your thumb every day, all day. Painful grip is annoying. There’s braces out there you can try if surgery is not appealing. https://tinyurl.com/y5u5w9up NSAID’s if you can tolerate them, corticosteroids injections. During my hand surgery rotation we did CMC surgery on at least 2 or 3 people a week in one hospital. LRTI was the favored procedure then https://tinyurl.com/y24numnx It may have changed in the last 20+ years.

    (Just looked, it looks like they’re still doing the LRTI procedure.)

  189. A bunch of people in DC just wet themselves.

    https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-creating-schedule-f-excepted-service/

    In English, it makes a bunch of policy wonks and deep staters at-will employees.

  190. Now I have to to start swim training with him.

  191. youtu.be/IQfGnDtv0z0

  192. Turkey shortage this year. We can’t guarantee Thanksgiving, Let alone Christmas.

  193. It amazed me when I was in boot camp that there were guys in my company who couldn’t swim. I mean, dudes, you joined the fucking Navy.

    When we went to Swim 1, which you have to pass before you can graduate, one guy had to be thrown off the platform by the petty officers because he was terrified of the water. There were instructors in the pool to help him, but he wouldn’t jump. So they threw him off.

    He had to go back to the pool every Saturday for individual swim lessons in order to pass.

    Later when we went to Swim 2, which wasn’t mandatory but he didn’t know it, he went AWOL the night before because he was so scared of the water.

    He was caught and thrown n the brig and we never saw him again.

    Make sure Ethan knows how to swim before he ships out.

  194. Jimbro,
    Thanks, they are going to talk to me about surgery. The left hand is probably worse than normal ’cause I’m a lefty.

  195. I knew there was something wrong with you.

  196. Just saw a poll for Minnesota senate that has the republican challenge 1% behind the DFL incumbent, and I’m actually thinking this might be real somehow.

  197. I’m also reading Allahpundit taking about how desperate Trump is, how he acting more and more erratic. Then I watch a clip of a Trump really and think, “this is the guy who’s losing it due to desperation?” He seems very confident for a guy who is supposedly panicking.

  198. Trump’s special guest at the debate tonight is going to be Hunter’s former business partner.

  199. how desperate Trump is, how he acting more and more erratic

    Projection. That’s been a staple of the Anti-Trumpers for a long time

    100%

  201. He can swim. We just need to work on form/speed/ endurance

  202. You guys watching this right now???

  203. Order some sharks off Amazon.

  204. Bobulinski press conference should be the end of the Bidens.

  205. Biden is innocent. He has released his tax returns and there is no money from China in them.

  206. Loans, Biden got loans they don’t show up as income. Only the interest and none was charged.

  207. Just saw a Biden commercial were he claimed a tractor trailer killed his wife.

    Unbelievable

  208. Awww, CBS was gonna run an 11th-hour pre election hit piece but the bad man rooned it! Waaaaahhhh

  209. “Here, let me disprove your lies before you even air them. That should save us both some time.”

  210. How many times will Trump call Biden “Big Guy” during the debate?

  211. Too inside baseball. Trump needs to lay out the corruption tonight. He rekd 60 minutes.

  212. We gonna live blog this thing?

  213. buyden used to say it was a drunk driver. guy driving the truck wasn’t drunk, Joe’s wife was distracted and pulled out in front of the truck. but he ruined the guys life.

  214. why wasn’t I notified how good spaghetti squash is? plus roasted squash seeds!

  215. New electric Hummer does 0-60 in 3 seconds.

  216. I’ll watch highlights of the debate tomorrow. Paula’s working so early bed time. Turning off “The Killers” on TCM which is a pretty good flick. It includes a young Ronald Reagan’s last film role.

  217. Reagan slaps Angie Dickinson in that film.

  218. it’s more fun when trump interrupts

  219. good god, now Russia and Iran?

    No Hunter question though.

  220. Now Biden is trying to put Russia on Trump, and Welker is letting him.

  221. Now Welker asking about Trumps account in China. Nothing about Biden.

    Much more fun when Trump runs wild.

  222. Wish Trump had hammered Biden on how he was going to pay for his wish list.

  223. Who built the cages, Joe?

  224. Also wish he’d hammered Biden on Solyndra since Biden brought up the recovery act.

  225. Biden’s getting tired and starting to lose it.

  226. ritalyn is kicking in

    Immigration, and Trump is rockin.

  227. And now the democrat talking point, race.

  228. I hope he hammers Joe for not doing anything about race in 47 years.

  229. oh man, he’s gonna bash joe on race. Joe did nothing, and Trump is pointing it out.

  230. Central Park 5 happened when? and that’s what Joe has.

  231. this is one democrat talking point after another.

  232. Jay, you got your wish. Still wish he’d hit Biden on trillions of planned spending.

  233. he did really good in that segment

  234. He’s hitting the spending

  235. Oh yeah, bash him with solyndra! Come on, Man!

  236. Oh man, Biden told him to put it on his site, and that video exists.

  237. I shouted at the screen when Biden said he was for fracking.

  238. There’s two videos of Biden being against fracking. What a putz.

  239. and the qualifier comes out again. I dont think he said that on video.

  240. “Systemic racism”. Garbage.

  241. I thought Trump did great in the race segment.

  242. Fuck Chris Wallace, the interrupter in chief.

  243. Fuck Brit Hume, she didn’t bring up the latest news. It was Trump

  244. Donna Brazile blaming storms and fires on climate change. Idiot.

  245. Everything Jay said x2.

  246. I hope that thing is getting raked in replies. That’s a fresh, new level of dumb.

  247. My mom came over to visit the grandbaby. She wanted to watch football, so we streamed it on Amazon. I haven’t seen commercials in a year, good God they’re stupid. One Biden ad claiming Trump shut down small business and mishandled covid.

  248. “that thing” is running for Congress in Georgia

  249. The moderator was helping Biden but not nearly as much as Chris Wallace did last time. Wonder if she was really trying to be fair or realized how much she’d get raked over the coals if she let her bias have free rein.

  250. Trump already tweeted video of Joe talking about banning fracking. >200K likes already.

  251. It will be interesting to see if Biden does more campaign events or hunkers back down in the basement.

  252. He’ll need at least a week to recover and detox. Maybe now’s the time to “get Covid”.

  253. “Projection. That’s been a staple of the Anti-Trumpers for a long time.”

    Yes, but also I think we’re living in two different realities. My two main sites are Ace and Hotair. I prefer Ace’s take, but he doesn’t update often enough (and sometimes he spends way too much time bitching about Twitter fights or whatever and I just don’t care at all) so I read both sites, and it’s total cognitive dissonance as I see two completely different planets.

  254. I don’t know who Dar’shun Kendrick is, but I do know she doesn’t know anything about labor law or animals.

  255. Alex, that coyote tweet was really something else. Holy crap.

    My favorite was that one of the first responses was someone saying “are you really a corporate attorney?” And she says yes, and a damned good one, what’s your point? She really should have taken a second to wonder if she had just said something so stupid that she would need someone to explain it to her later.

  256. Darren’s enthusiasm remained passionate.
