‘election deniers’ went mainstream MSM at the speed of light.November 8, 2022 at 11:33 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle November 8 2022 #120523
Election day observations new to me. Several unattended police vehicles set up near polling place entryways with no police to be seen. Drove to another ward, same thing. In the past poll workers used to do a great potluck spread for themselves making waiting voters stomachs grumble. None of that this year although the crock pots were simmering away at the last primary election. Strangely there were zero candidates/surrogates outside the polling places handing out vote for me stuff. I assume in person voting is coming to the end.November 3, 2022 at 1:03 am in reply to: Debt Rattle November 2 2022 #119997

This must be the last time they got him in a straightjacket. As they say, it all went downhill from here. What a man. RIP.
The man was a turning point for music. Off topic we have been enjoying the early Salvador Dali features which blow my mind considering later work.

@ Maxwell Quest. Hope you’re feeling better soon. Of course keep an eye on the O2. I feel fortunate for RIM’s early COVID coverage and John Day’s contributions.October 19, 2022 at 10:33 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle October 19 2022 #118859
US Strategic Oil Reserve blather is strong at this time. Basic geology question if you will. If we pump out all the oil for votes do the salt caverns collapse and need repair? I do understand the “solution mining” camp, but fresh water is becoming quite dear. Thank you.
P.S. I think the strategic oil reserve was a good idea at the time. Control of same should have been the bailiwick of the DOD and Department of Energy not the D.C. sleazeballs.October 18, 2022 at 11:46 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle October 18 2022 #118736
I for one question the validity of the recent Nord Stream pipeline damage images. Reminds me of surgical images presented to a recovering surgery patient.

Bishko at #118503.
I can, however, see how this could easily be used as a new hobgoblin to get the masses to demand safety regardless of their lost liberties. It has already been used to funnel hundreds of billions into unknown hands.

For those who are not tired of the Kerch Bridge explanations John Helmer has one up at ‘Dancing With Bears’. Y’all getting tired of shit? United Nations? What’s the point?

A good indication on how well the spat in Ukraine is progressing will be when the Offshore Sportsbooks add Putin to the 2024 Presidential betting market. Even with or slightly ahead of Trump.

Bishko and MPSK, I’m sure we have more than a few ‘trash pickers’ here at TAE.

@Dora.Unfortunately a large majority of ‘Rooskie’ haters are unaware of the shenanigans in that part of the world and Karl just scratched the surface. I did my share of dive under the desk, run to the basement drills here in the USA. I find it difficult to have an open conversation about the the conflict in eastern Europe with fellow folks. I’m less then pleased about the money we’re shipping to Ukraine. Lots of landmines and rattlesnakes ahead.September 27, 2022 at 10:27 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle September 27 2022 #117035

I wonder what’s going on in Ukraine. We all are Bill 7. You can spend your waking hours trying to make sense of the issue, but at the end of the day nobody has a clue to what’s going on. Here in the ‘hood’ most minds are in denial. Folks have no idea about the Ukie/Russkie conflict nor do they want to coming off the COVID 19 thingie. Personally, I’m sensing escalation down the gravity funnel, things are not too bad at the top of the funnel then down you go. We all are hoping for a display of maturity from our world wide assholians.

Ivermectin. Off topic yet again. Is there any wisdom out there on taking a two day prophylactic dose every three months like we do with our four legged friends? John Day, Germ and others? Some scuttlebut has surfaced about fewer cancer events with people taking Ivermectin on a regular basis for river blindness. Thanks in advance.September 6, 2022 at 11:16 pm in reply to: Debt Rattle September 6 2022 #115334

Bill7 @ 115237. I’m not sure when the ‘walk back’ term gained traction in our political correctness era, but it is a bullshit term. Walk it out say what you say and walk it back. The walk it back rhetoric is on the backburner ready to be served again. Rural school tax bill hit here today with an explanatory note about fuel budgets going to Hell. Putin’s fault not the big ass pickups and SUVs. Yep.

Farmer McGregor, agree with your post regarding the CO2 bloom from mechanical cultivation being beneficial to crops, another benefit is a dust mulch for water conservation. I loved the linked video of the Shangri La farm, flat as a pancake and no stones. Farming the glacial till belt in PA we pick stones every spring, you do not pick up any humpers smaller than your belly. At cultivation time you would say I need to go on a diet PDQ. The issue with mechanical cultivation is it burns up organic matter (CO2 bloom) which has a work around. Crop rotation.

@ Bill 7 and D Benton Smith. I agree with DBS on the Foxfire books which are probably very affordable at online used booksellers. Anecdote, I had a very fortunate experience years and years ago to help build a timber framed replica of an icehouse (rough carpentry at best). The old timers showed up, surveyed the tools assembled and said power saws are okay, metal saw horses are not, leave your routers at home, bring chisels and read up on board and batten (‘there is only one place for one nail’) . We got it up the next weekend. 30′ long, 15′ wide, 12′ high. We cut ice every other year now since we’re swilling Chardonnay now days as opposed to sucking down beer.August 22, 2022 at 3:45 am in reply to: Debt Rattle August 21 2022 #113927

Wes, hearing issues. Have you considered cochlear implants? I’m running two.The first one was year 2000. The bilateral was 2008. You will never hear well in notice ever. You will need to be close to an implant center say 140 kilometers or less for the first implant for frequent programing. You’ll also need a close associate with decent hearing to identify new sounds. Crows cawing, wax paper making a noise and noise from onions sizzling blew my mind. Outpatient surgery, OTC pain medications and skip the prescribed antibiotics. A week’s downtime for me. Advanced Bionics implants are the way to go. I will be glad to give you my email addy just ask.
