We moved in on Tuesday and by Wednesday we had 6" of snow on the ground. I used my new Troy-Built 2-stage snow blower to clear our driveway and front walk. I still tossed some gravel, but it sure beats trying to shovel the driveway clear. The driveway is 20-ft of concrete and about 80-ft of gravel.

We got our furniture delivered from the warehouse today. The truck got stuck on a patch of ice and one of our neighbors had to tow the truck off the ice patch. Then the truck could back down the driveway and unload.

It's snowing again. No garbage pickup today, Republic says they'll get it tomorrow. Sure. I'll believe when I see it. In Bellevue, all it took was a 1/2-in of snow to get garbage service canceled.

I was listening to that song "The Neutron Dance" today and the lines "Someone stole my brand-new Chevrolet, and the rent is due and I got no place to stay" made me wonder if she ever did figure out that her car got repossessed.

So why do I label the left Commie-Pinkos?

"Mao's cultural revolution wanted to remove the Four Olds. They were Old Ideas, Old Culture, Old Customs, and Old Habits. The campaign to destroy the Four Olds began in Beijing on August 19, 1966 shortly after the launch of the Cultural Revolution." (via wiki)

Any of this look familiar?

The New York Times just referred to Epstein's "apparent suicide." I guess they have finally gotten a tiny bit squeamish about publishing obvious lies as hard fact. How long before they come around to the truth, which is that Epstein did not kill himself?

Liz Warren said, supposedly without irony, that one person shouldn’t be able to decide who gets heard. Is she that stupid, or is she just aware that huge majorities of Americans are that stupid? I am going with the latter. The EU is threatening Twitter if it doesn’t start deciding whose voice should be heard, and Apple is threatening to remove Twitter’s app from the store for the same reason. This is the company who is assisting China in its efforts to silence dissent. I am coming to the place where if you are NOT actively supporting free speech, you are in favor of restricting it. History will not be kind to your kind.

Very very windy tonight.

For a week, I've been hearing about Harry and Meghan coming to Boston.

Now that they're here, I finally realize that it's the other two that came.

Not a big royals fan.

Manufactured scandal in Britain because William's godmother asked a woman named Ngozi Fulani where in Africa she came from.

I gather Fulani was born in Britain, but there is some uncertainty about where her parents came from.

Still, it shouldn't be such a big deal.

It’s a real shame what’s happened to that program. In my day, a Nebraska player could beat the tar out of his girlfriend and be back on the field before she even got out of the hospital.

Mike In Snoqualmie! I guiltily admit that I rarely come to Althouse's last post of the day, so I haven't tracked your construction saga. Glad you moved in and hopefully you will be settled for the holidays.

Enrique Tarrio up next BIG BROTHER ain't playing no more. Oath Keepers and Proud Boys gonna get thinned out. Former FBI rat and felon Tarrio "standing back and standing by" Elmer and Kelly getting sized up for orange jumpsuits, I'm LAYING 3-1 right now that Elmer and Kelly do at least 12 out of 20 with more handicapping to do before sentencing. Elmers's wife thrilled he won't be around to claim spit custody with the kids. I'll lay my final line before sentence as always. Playing soldier has its consequences. They'll be thinning the ranks of the toy soldiers very soon. You want to storm the Bastille be prepared to pay the piper when you fail.

When I went for my annual physical recently, my doctor offered me the annual flu shot but didn’t mention the Chinese flu booster. I was prepared to refuse, emphatically if necessary, but I didn’t need to. Has anyone else had a similar experience?

Gospace said...

Seems several HS football teams have cancelled the remainder of their season because of excess injuries and sickness.

Hmmm... Data point. For what, I'm not certain. But I'd sure like to see something they're never going to publicize. Ratio of injuries/illness to dreaded covid vaccine status.

I'm 67- never read before of that happening before. Did it and it wasn't newsworthy? If so, why is it newswprthy today? SO many questions, so few easy to find answers.

Watch "election interference" suddenly drop out of political circulation.

I think it's a great idea that the Democrats have acquired and will now expose Trump's tax returns. That sets the precedent for the public disclosure and full audit of every elected official's tax returns every year. I am particularly looking forward to next seeing Nancy Pelosi's returns, which I'm sure are being readied as we speak.

The Neutron Dance music video is hysterical

white guy boss with a southern accent, possibly gay and/or racist

"Okay has everybody been to the bathroom tonight?"

"Uh-huh."

"Then why are y'all jiggling?"

(love that movie, easily Murphy's best)

Saint Croix said...

Woke people could have a field day with Murphy's character.

He's laughing at gay people in Beverly Hills, and later pretending to be one -- basically Murphy is trying to "pass" in multiple scenes.

Murphy is investigating the death of his white buddy. This is a beautiful set-up because it shows Murphy's character loves across color lines and he doesn't give a shit about race. (Also he has serious issues with his mean ass black boss back in Detroit). Murphy is in big trouble, but he keeps pushing and pushing and pushing.

Motivated by love for his white brother man.

He's the victim of a racist arrest. "I was thrown out of a window!" It's so outrageously racist that everybody immediately feels sympathy for him and accepts him as the hero. (This is why Murphy was known as the king of cross-over).

Murphy is fearless about being arrested, even though it was unfair and racist. He's not whining or bitching or hating or any of that. (He knows he's a cop and they're making a mistake -- he's confident cop brotherhood will win out).

But the funny line is "This is the cleaning and nicest police car I've ever been in." That cracked me up. Beverly Hills Cop is a beautiful and funny film about culture clash.

Murphy got in trouble for making fun of gay people early in his career. Now he's G-rated and a hell of a lot more PC, and his humor is so boring to me. But back in the day he was very funny, and this was his funniest movie.

Wait until August. I love sleeping on the front deck with the dog. Cheers!!

My family is on the east side of the mountains. They got 2 feet of snow.

They need to move south.

Is there Free Exercise in the UK?

You tell me.

Be sure to criticize the Koran, too, champ!

In the UK, they punish speaking but let the rapists go free. Nice. 21st century I guess.

Yeah right! All those government bureaucrats are going to risk firing by refusing to jump onto a jet bound for the Mexican border. And before returning, they can "take a ride on the Reading" to protect jittery train engineers.

The latest bunch of 'crats have forgotten or never knew how Ronald Reagan handled the Air Traffic Controllers.

"Remember the Podesta art collection? In 2016 it was revealed that the art collection of DNC bigwigs Tony and John Podesta was bizarre and really disturbing. The Podesta’s collection contained, as critic Michael J. Pearce described it, “weird genetically-mutated piggy-children sculptures and creepy photographs of men with children running away.” People were “shocked to learn that this pillar of the Democratic Party owned a sculpture of a decapitated naked woman whose pose closely resembled a photo of one of Jeffrey Dahmer’s victims. Another installation in [Podesta’s] home included hyper-real sculpted hybrid human and pig figures, including piglet children.”"

"But an odd thing happened when a riotous protest came to the Capitol. Democrats, who, the summer long, justified riots in the name of “social justice,” suddenly became champions for law and order. ‘Killings, assaults, arson and looting were justified for the hoi polloi, but don’t bring unrest around our workplace’.

Attacking courthouses, statehouses and city halls - even the White House - was warranted, but rioting at the national legislature is going too far. Burning churches, toppling statues, and defacing monuments were contextualized and largely ignored until it came to the sanctity of your hallowed halls."

You are one hilarious pronoun Muta. Interesting that Blacks and Hispanics in my church don't seem to mind drinking from the same water fountain as me. Remind me to ask our Hispanic assistant pastor his view on that. I already know his view on trashing our Old Ideas, Old Culture, Old Customs, and Old Habits since he preaches on it.

Dinky.
You shouldn't masturbate in public. It's unseemly. China is sending tanks to aid the protestors in various cities around China. And by aid I mean crush them under the treads.
Thinking of the Jan. 6 protestors and the protestors in China. Why is the first reaction to any protest against the left violence.

tim in vermont said...

What do the Canadian truckers, the French Yellow Vests, the Chinese lockdown protesters, and the US jab refuseniks have in common? All are despised by the same WEF that supports the Ukrainian fascists who march in huge crowds with the same blood and soil flags and torches that we saw in Charlottesville.
