    Great talk by Raheem above. Love the idea of the test for any money raise or organization or particular politician is just ask them if Biden won fair and square. Simple. If they don’t say no, then don’t give them your money, time, or vote. And if possible, get yourself in the party. Apparently there are tons of seats open in local districts and others.

      Both officers were injured but released two days later. The woman is OK. The suspect is dead.

    • elliesmom says:

      When we wonder why a woman who is being abused doesn’t leave, it’s often because she knows it’s often riskier to leave than to stay. The only time I have ever been in fear for my life was when I helped a friend leave her abusive husband. She kept trying to pack up more and more of her stuff, and I just wanted the hell out of there. She’s fine today, and he got squished by a big truck while he was riding his motorcycle. While Karma is a bitch, there are good bitches and bad bitches.

      The hope this brings is never too early. The reality may not quite mesh with the statement though. Today the highs here will be in the upper 40’s to 50°s. The rest of the week we’ll have temps in the 60°s. 👏 👏 👏🌞

    Don Surber’s Highlights from Saturday:

    The New York Times accused Pepé Le Pew of approving of rape.

    ITEM 1: Outkick the Coverage reported, “The NY Times, Which Once Said Pedophilia ‘Not A Crime,’ Sets Sights On Pepé Le Pew.”
    The story said, “Now that the New York Times has succeeded in joining other lamebrains in an effort to cancel a half dozen Dr. Seuss titles, it is moving on to its next quirky cartoon character.
    “Beware, Pepé Le Pew, the Looney Tunes skunk whom aptly-named Times columnist Charles Blow has convicted of ‘normalizing rape culture.’ ”
    Le Pew tried to seduce a female cat he had mistaken for a skunk. Maybe if it were a kitten, the Times would be cool with it.
    Blow got back.

      I follow a couple sites from outside the USA and evidently those two went and whined to Okra that the every made their lives miserable making them follow rules and stuff so they left to be independent and private so they headed for LA (privacy don’t you know) but are mad that even wimpy Pa Charles finally cut off their paycheck since they quit their jobs and expects them to earn their keep (and live off Harry’s inheritance from his Mom).

      Odd, this same crazy woman cut off her family a few years back a being no good enough and holding her back from landing a really rich hubby and then reconnected with then mother who deserted her as a child when someone pointed her in the direction of the dumbest prince in the know universe.

      And of course everyone is racist (because the mom who dumped her is mixed).

      Cancel over a millennium of history and culture because a whiny 40 year olds feeling were hurt. She was expected to work and they told her she could not be Queen.

      The Bidens sympathize with the whiners. Color me surprised.

    More and more I grow a greater appreciation of Kurt Vonnegut. https://thefederalist.com/2021/03/08/kurt-vonnegut-makes-the-case-against-amazon

    • elliesmom says:

      It’s easy to demonize Amazon, and on some levels they deserve it, but none of this started with them. When my son was in cancer treatment, we had been using a small local pharmacy for all of our needs. When I approached the pharamcist/owner about keeping my son’s very expensive after hospital chemo medications available to us, I assured him with a letter from our insurance company indicating they were covering the prescription with no co-pay and I promised I would call him just before we entered the hospital, he told me he couldn’t do it. So then I asked what if I paid him upfront, and I was the one waiting to be reimbursed? He still said he wouldn’t so I went to one of the big chains, and they were happy to do it. I took all of my business there so I could get everything all at once. In a few years the local pharmacist sold his store to a chain. He couldn’t compete on price, selection, or service.

      I started getting my groceries delivered from the store where I usually stopped anyway. When I moved, there’s a very nice standalone grocery store nearby. They were friendly and accommodating as ED’s health deteriorated. They even moved one of their outdoor benches into the store so he had a place to sit. Eventually, even that got to not be enough, and grocery shopping got very stressful. Then I got an email from the store I used for delivery before telling me they now delivered to my new address. So I signed up again. At first I was the only one getting grocery delivery in my neighborhood, but after the pandemic hit, neighbors stopped me and asked me how I like delivery, and the honest answer is I love it. Now my driver tells me he empties an entire tractor trailor within a mile of my house. The local store could have purchased a smaller truck and just serviced the town it’s in and kept all of these customers, or at least set up curbside pickup, but instead they cut the hours they’re open and made people sign up ahead of time for a “shopping appointment”. I’m sure sure some people will go back to shopping inperson, but so far my driver is still busy here. Is it the big regional chain that has cost the local store a lot of business?

      A few years ago everything was Walmart’s fault. Every mom and pop that went out of business blamed it on Sam. While no small business can compete with them on price, they could on service, but I’ve had to deal with corporate WalMart a couple of times, and they are absolutely wonderful. They acknowledge sometimes shit happens, and they don’t squabble over whose fault it is. It’s theirs to clean up. Try getting money back when you buy something faulty or that just doesn’t show up from Etsy.

      Amazon should be held accountable for their censoring books, but small bookstores censor, too. Visit a local bookstore in a place like Concord, MA, and try to find books by conservative authors. I realize because of the market power of Amazon, those books might not even get published. The cure for that is not to whine. It’s to open a publishing business and recruit the authors Amazon won’t sell.

      From the Federalist article- Not all of us have the time to drive twenty miles to pay twice as much for an envelope for the privilege of chatting with an owner of a shop who may or may not be having good day. There two ways to approach shopping. One is to get what we need with the least possible hassle at the best possible price. The other is to use shopping as an enjoyable outing. One isn’t right and the other wrong, and sometimes a person likes each, but at different times. Amazon fills the needs of people who just need stuff. If it turns out there aren’t enough people to keep the stores around that provide entertainment around, that’s how capitalism works.

      • dm says:

        Amazon is convenient, quick, competitive and actually do “good deeds” on a corporate scale as only something as big as them can. That being said, I still hate them and use them ONLY as a last resort…I think I’m getting into that cranky part of old age.

        • foxyladi14 says:

          I have never used Amazon. 😀

          • elliesmom says:

            I started using Amazon when it was just a bookstore. I was a beta-tester for Prime. I could live without them, but shopping would take me a lot more time, and if I still shopped online, I’d be spending a lot more on shipping costs. I haven’t been inside a store of any kind for a year and a half.

          • lyn5 says:

            I’ve been using iHerb, Vitacost (Kroger) and Swanson Vitamins for supplements instead of amazon. I love Chewy for pet products.

          • elliesmom says:

            I love Chewy, too.

        • elliesmom says:

          I’m a “get in the store, get what I want, and get out of the place” kind of shopper unless it’s an outing with my kids. I don’t even like to “girffriend shop”. The older I get, the less I like to shop, and the more exhausting I find it. I have a friend who goes to four different grocery stores every week. I think she’s nuts. 🙂 When she broke her hip, I gave her a 6 month delivery membership to the store where she says she does the bulk of her shopping. It was so much easier than trying to get her in and out of my car and into one of their go-carts at 4 different stores. It drove her crazy. What if eggs turned out to be 3 cents cheaper at one of the other stores that week? She spends hours going over the flyers from all the stores and clipping the coupons. If there’s a coupon on something I’m buying, it automatically gets applied, but even if I shop person, I’m not likely to buy something because it has a coupon. I get that grocery shopping is entertaining for her, and I hope my patronizing a service that means I don’t have to shop in person doesn’t take her entertainment away her, but I’m not going to shop in person to keep her choice alive.

          • lyn5 says:

            I’m with you. I go to specific stores for specific things, and I know what prices to expect. I may shop at a store once a month or every two months, because I stock up.

            I usually zipped around the stores, but I have slowed down in the Age of Covid.

      • lateblum says:

        Great response, em! I have to say, I need the face-to-face interactions and the outings as often as I can given I feel like a hermit in my condo at times. I pretty much thrive on social “stuff”.

        Earlier today, I was thinking back to this time last year when I was inside almost all the time. I didn’t mind it so much in the beginning, but after a while, I needed to get out. I found out the only stores, besides the grocery stores, that were open without an appointment, were the hardware stores. I can’t tell you just how much I valued LeMoi Hardware store. I found them to be friendly as well as helpful. And even *they* referred me to Amazon from time to time. 😉

    Supreme Court Tosses Trump’s Last Election Appeals

    The US Supreme Court on Monday tossed the last of three cases brought by former President Donald Trump challenging his 2020 election loss, ending his quest for vindication through the courts – hardly any of which actually considered the evidence presented, and instead dismissed the cases on technical grounds.

      I think a lot of these women wanted daughters and either overtly or covertly encouraged the behaviors. As for Jolie/Pitt’s kid, Jolie gave an interview and said she didn’t feel the same about Shiloh as she did her adopted sons. I’m sure Shiloh tried to adapt to the loved children.

    Cuomo Impeachment Resolution Drafted By NY Lawmakers

    New York GOP lawmakers are introducing a resolution to begin impeachment proceedings against embattled Governor Andrew Cuomo amid multiple sexual misconduct allegations and a COVID nursing home scandal.


    • elliesmom says:

      There aren’t enough Republicans in the New York State House to impeach Cuomo without bi-partisan support. Will they have it? I’d be more confident if the Democrats were introducing the resolution.

  46. elliesmom says:

    I feel like my mother today. Whenever she couldn’t find something, she’d say, “Don’r ever waste your time looking for something. Spend your time cleaning instead. You’ll find what you’re looking for, and you’ll have a cleaner house.” Finding my baguette pans today got half my basement cleaned out, but now I have to do the other half and schedule a charity pickup. I think I should have just looked for the pans or bought some hoagie rolls from the store. 😉

    The Burger King from early today stating a woman’s place is in the kitchen was cheeky. It was herald the announcement of a new scholarship to culinary arts schools for women. The cray cray that lost their shit don’t eat there anyhow and they got a ton of press.

      • elliesmom says:

        I often wonder how my life might have been different if I had gone to culinary school for real at 18 instead of for fun in my 50s. I was working for a caterer while I was in high school, and I loved it. But the valedictorian with scholarship offers to engineering school didn’t go to “cooking school” in 1969. Elliesdad often said if I had, maybe the two of us would own a fancy B&B somewhere. Of course, if I hadn’t gone to engineering school, we never would have met. Unlike him, I don’t believe in all of the world fate brings us to a place where we meet our soulmate. He was the hopeless romantic, not I. And other than greeting our guests on our big porch overlooking the mountains and offering them a glass of wine, he never said what his job at this mountain top inn would be. 🙂 I think it’s interesting now that women are being recruited to become chefs the way I was recruited to go to engineering school. Good for Burger King, and I think it’s hilarious the SJWs jumped on them without reading the fine print.

        • jadzia1971 says:

          My second son has FINALLY decided what he wants to do when he grows up, and what he wants to do is go to culinary school.. Although I am aghast that he has chosen just about the only type of post-secondary education in France that isn’t free, I’m very proud that he has bucked family (okay, grandma) pressure to be the perfect French young man and just go get an engineering degree, which as a smarty he is perfectly capable of doing. He is going to do what he loves.

    • elliesmom says:

      Let me get this straight- She wants untrained civilians to step into what could escalate into a fatally violent situation because that would be safer than having a fully trained police officer do it? This is even more brilliant than sending in social workers.

      • Anthony says:

        Yes, that’s what she’s encouraging. It won’t be long before she makes BLM and Antifa my local citizen militia. This is why I’m regrettably accepting the fact that I have to leave NYC after an entire lifetime of calling it home.

      We all know how much I love my dogs, but I know my limitations. I don’t have the kind of personality that could train and maintain control over an agressive breed of dog. I need a lovable people-pleaser breed. This is at least the second German shepherd the Bidens have owned. The dog’s name, Major, says they know shepherds are a dominant breed. They didn’t name him Marley. If they had designs on moving into the White House, and when haven’t they, they should have taken into consideration the stresses that would put on a dog. They took on an aggressive breed from a shelter and then threw him into a situation where he would always be on high alert. Most dogs who get into serious behavior issues like biting aren’t bad dogs, They have crappy owners.

      • jadzia1971 says:

        I’m shocked that they didn’t have some kind of professional dog-handler on staff. Not a snarky comment, I’m completely serious. If I had money and the busy schedule of the leader of the free world, I would hire such an individual.

        • elliesmom says:

          When we got Ellie. and I knew living with a physically challenged person meant she was going to have to learn more than come, sit, stay, and drop it, I enlisted a dog trainer’s help. Now, I’m fortunate my niece is a professional dog handler. Ellie knows how to handle herself playing with and being safe on stairs around a handicapped person without any commands. She never would have knocked Joe Biden down. She knows lots of other things an aide dog knows how to do. The difference is Ellie is and always was primarily my dog so her “job” wasn’t to help ED, but rather to make sure she didn’t make his life more difficult.

          Shepherds are extremely smart, but they can be very aggressive. My niece adopts shelter dogs regularly. She has four at the moment, but she says getting a shelter dog is like buying a book with the first four chapters torn out. You may eventually figure out what must have happened in those first chapters, but it takes time and patience, and sometimes you get it wrong. Who knows what happened to Major before the Bidens adopted him and what his “triggers” are? A professional handler would have known what signs to look for. The news reports say both dogs have been banished back to Delaware. Hopefully, the staff back there will be familiar to the dogs as well as the surroundings.
