      My grandkids’ little beagle didn’t like my friend yesterday. I gave my friend a bag of treats to win her over, but it was a no sale. This dog made a flying leap into my lap and gave me the full “Dino treatment” the first time she met me so she’s not an unfriendly or even timid pup. Then my friend confided in me her grandchildren are a bit afraid of her. They live locally so it’s not like she only sees them once a year. We talked about the “dogs, cats, and kids factor”. I truly think we all walk around with this invisible force field around us that “dogs, cats, and kids” can sense even before other adults do.

      That’s not to say you’re a bad person if “dogs, cats, and kids” don’t accept you immediately. Just that you’re not sending out “I’m approachable” vibes. I would love to know what impression Robin D’Angelo leaves on the people who smile at her at the grocery store. I bet dogs don’t like her, and she probably blames it on the dogs’ ancestors being used to chase down runaway slaves.

        How was your lunch?

        • elliesmom says:

          The lunch was fine. I managed to steer the conversation away when it came close to places I wouldn’t have been able to take it. Now that a day has passed, I think I’m going to keep her a bit at arm’s length a little longer. It feels a bit dishonest to leave her with the impression I’m on the same side of things as she is. I didn’t say I agree, but then again I didn’t say I don’t.

          She believes the way to deal with inflation is to find stores where prices are lower and implied Republicans are “too lazy and too rich” to shop around. Wait until she decides to grill a steak. When it came to getting the vaccine, she asked me if it was easy to get vaccinated in my town. I told her about how the health department had had Saturday clinics, but I never said I didn’t go. When she asked me about Acadia, I told her Mount Desert Island, where the park is located, has a bus system that will take you all over the island, and it’s free. LL Bean helps finance it to reduce pollution and traffic congestion in the park. She’s not sure she wants to give up the convenience of having her own car with her, but I’m hurting the environment by using my dishwasher for just one person, and i should use paper plates. Most of the things she says she likes better since Trump left office were hilariously misinformed. Most of the time I find her legitimately funny, and she has a big heart. I’ve just hit my capacity for bs about how evil conservatives are.

      • elliesmom says:

        Last year when it was hard to get some things at the grocery store, “Sidney Poitier” , my grocery delivery guy, brought me things from his garden that were missing on my list. We both smiled. Now that the store has moved the guys with CDL licenses to other duties, I miss him, but I’m happy for his promotion. I just don’t know how people like D’Angelo can carry the burden of such a large chip on their shoulder all the time.

        I don’t know about liberals, but progressives are absolutely miserable. I think abject wallowing in shit is one of the tenets of their faith. I swear some I know enjoyed the covid. Everyone was as unhappy as they are. I love love love that they attempt to justify unhapiness with claims of intellectual superiority. Seriously what contented person could subject themselves to maddow five nights a week?

        • Constance says:

          I think something is off about her viewership stats. I know of at least 5 people who hang on her every word and go to her for the trusted scoop on what is happening. Yet they say her viewership is way down and she only has several million viewers. Maybe she has a big internet presence.

          • Mothy67 says:

            Her numbers are down, but she is still the 2nd or 3rd (occassionally 4th) most watched on cable news. Tucker leads the pack with Hannity, madcow, and sometimes the Five battling it out for 2nd in the 25 to 54 demo. She consistently beat Hannity before January when it was all things Trump bad. What should scare them is the exodus of younger viewers. Fox has become far less stodgy. Waters, Guffield, morning crew, Tucker deliver with a far more upbeat temperament. Humor is a progressive’s Achilles Heel. They try feeble attempts but it comes across as mean spirited.
            I just love that they so wanted to bury O’Reilly and in doing so birthed prime time Tucker. Bill O infuriated them but he brought no one new to the table. Carlson is bringing in unheard of young numbers to “your Dad’s” cable news. Haha. He’s also pretty much the voice of Fox Nation.

      One Thanksgiving, when we all went to my parents’ for dinner, my mother forgot to turn on the oven. Dinner was fun… From that point on, when we would call in the morning to wish

    • lateblum says:

      Are these jerks even aware of the cognitive dissonance they are putting out? One moment they are warning of the “Delta variant”. The next moment they are talking about “opening up” various events, places, types of businesses.
      So what is it? Are we supposed to be so afraid that we isolate ourselves, or are we supposed to be buying tickets to Lollapalooza, or movies, or attending the NBA finals or baseball games?
      And then they are, at long last, o ing out with “studies” showing the world just how ridiculous and wrong-headed were the rules of quarantine, social isolation, remote learning for all. I think the “recent studies” anger me more than anything except what TPTB did to our children all of last year. I wish my son and his wife weren’t such rule followers and so brain washed that they wouldn’t send the girls to Catholic school or a different private school last year.

    I wonder what the intelligence community thinks is radical expression. I don’t believe anyone on 1/6 acted in a manner that deserves arrest. It was a bogus election. Am I a radical for saying that? Wonder if my proggies will report me. This is scary stuff.

    • Somebody says:

      I think the people that broke out the windows most certainly should be arrested and prosecuted. I don’t think they should be held in solitary or mistreated. They deserve a fair trial.

      I’m not aware of any of the window breakers being arrested. The arrests I’ve heard about were people that walked through an open door or people that never even entered the building like the pastor praying on the steps. Those arrests I disagree with.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Same here Somebody.

      • lateblum says:

        I agree you. People who vandalized should be held accountable. What let’s me know just how political this is, is that AFAIK, no one who is being held has committed anything violent or criminal – beyond trespassing.

      • 1539days says:

        This is the current progressive theory on criminal activity. Crime, to them is based mostly on intent. This is why hate crime legislation exists. With this, the state could eventually justify any of their mistreatment and call it good and not criminal, but make nonviolent protest a crime because it represents bad intent toward the state,

        The way to do this is to make criminal acts irrelevant and turn law enforcement into criminals. If we look at guys like Trayvon Martin and George Floyd, these are assholes who were stopped with force after committing criminal acts. Notice, that BLM doesn’t talk about innocent black people who were killed by bad cops, because most people already understand there’s a bad guy there. The BLM cases are ones where the bad guy is made into the good guy.

        In the case of the Capitol, good guys are being made into bad guys. The kind of pretests college kids did in the 60’s were more disruptive than the Capitol riot / unguided tour. But since the intent was to put pressure on Republicans to not certify a contested election, it was considered a crime to progressives and a treasonous act.

      Mothy, you asked recently “how ticked are We?” After reading this, we are so fucked.

      … but it won’t be ‘the state’ they will employ corporations to make it seem like we are still free (it’s already happening if you think about it)…

      They will never let us win an election again without a pre-approved candidate…

      and prepare yourself to be fingerprinted, voice scanned, facial scanned, blood sampled, etc. for ‘the records’. I can certainly see Big Tech licking it’s chops in glee as they vie for the lucrative government contracts.

      They also knew once the inauguration took place there was going to be no remedy if/when the fraud was revealed.

  15. Helen Kenney says:

    On tv they were talking about California granting guaranteed income to some including those who come out of foster care. I really do not have a problem with this as long as it has a time limit. This is my reason. When I was in foster homes, I was lucky enough to be able to get my diploma because I did not turn 18 until September so I was 17 when I got my deploma. I had gotten a job with Bell Telephone so when I turned 18 I had an income. When you are in foster care, the state stops payment when the child turns 18, whether or not they have finished high school. ON that day these kids are on their own without a diploma or a job. They can not stay at the foster home, what are they supposed to do? They need that payment until they can graduate and get a job and get on their feet. maybe a 6 to 9 month limit could be included in the bill.

    • Mothy67 says:

      I don’t have any issue with foster kids even after 18 getting some sort of support. First, last month, security? Utilities? Transportation? Insurance? All that at 18 without family help. Especially in cities. I think direct help finding housing might be a better way to spend the money. Some people take in kids for a check.
      Do social workers devote time to making sure these young adults know how to take care of themselves?

      • Helen Kenney says:

        no they do not

        • Mothy67 says:

          It is disgusting that we provide free housing, health care, education, food to people illegally entering our country and discard our own children to the street upon turning 18. How many apartments could be provided to unfortunate youths for the price of jetting illegals all over the country.

        • Woke Lola says:

          They didn’t, but now most states have specially trained social workers that do understand how to help these youth.

      • Constance says:

        The guy that used to cut my hair grew up as a foster kid. He didn’t feel abused but no one ever kept him for any reason but money. He was out at 18 and was homeless for some years. He said he learned from other homeless where to get a bus pass and where to sleep. He woke up and was pushed out of the shelter, took the bus to breakfast, took another bus to lunch, took another bus to dinner then another bus to a shelter for the night and the routine took all his time. Finally at some point a barber talked to him about what he wanted to do with his life which he found an odd concept. The barber paid him to do some work at the shop and then taught him to cut hair and somehow got him licensed. He said he loves being a functional adult in society but no one ever gave him the idea or inspiration until the barber talked to him and helped him out. He has contempt for “the system” and he had about 4 brothers and sisters who he has mentored and they are mostly functional. So anyway I have no problem with helping foster kids.

    • Woke Lola says:

      This is not true anymore, Helen. All states now offer foster youth the opportunity to continue in foster care until at least age 21, some states allow up to age 25. The federal funding streams that set this mandate are informed by Jim Casey and designed to promote a “successful transition to adulthood.” Many are offered free apartments after graduating high school and anyone who wants to go to college gets a completely free ride and get to keep all their Pell grants, etc. They are even offered a food stipend while pursuing a degree. There is also vocational training available to them at no cost.

      This is the difference between various welfare programs that are designed to help people, and the push to liberate that money from restrictive use by providing a guaranteed income, which comes with no strings attached. I’m not sure how I feel about that, considering so many choose to do unethical things and are FREQUENTLY exploited by the family that sent them to foster care in the first place.

      • DeniseVB says:

        The military is a good alternative at 18 also. All expenses paid plus a paycheck and training in any field you qualify for. I am fascinated by this option for young people watching my granddaughter go through it. She’s already earning college credit for classes and training 🙂

      • Helen Kenney says:

        I am glad things changed. I have often wondered what my life would have been like if my birthday was a month before I could get my diploma. Many male foster kids did go into the military when I was a foster kid.

    No numbers have been reported by states on this site as of 2:30.
    https://ncov2019.live/data
    I have been checking it for a year and by this time most of the eastern states have reported. Not one today. I wonded if they are asking that data be withheld because the Delta Variant news scare isn’t really matching up with hard numbers. There is an uptick, but it doesn’t seem to me in any way alarming. I believe CA had around 1,100 cases across the entire state yesterday. I state with at least 40 million residents. It’s 12 days after the 4th. I would have expected a much larger increase. L.A. is going back to useless masks. Is this really all about pressure to get the jab. If you can’tvsee the numbers you just have to take their word for it that delta is sweeping the country.

    If the weather holds, I’ll be going to my first Ravinia Music Festival CSO Orchestra concert in nearly 2 years tonight. I’ve got my ticket and I’ve packed up the car. I’m just waiting until 5:45 or so when it’ll be time to drive to the train station.
    When they cancelled the concerts in May, 2020, I was so sad. It felt as if my world was really coming to an end. So tonight’s concert is a gift I’m giving to myself. I’m really so grateful.

        Pehaps it’s Bell getting older. She has always been terrified of thunder, but this year she won’t leave my side. Bad girl was surrended to authorities for being tied to a tree as a puppy during storms. I wonder if she remembers being tethered as a pup on a short leash when the sky grows dark. PTSD? The brat was allowed to pick any dog she wanted from the pound. She selected the one far away from all the others due to incessant barking. Had been returned several times. I wouldn’t have her any other way. I wish she wasn’t stressed by storms, but that aspect is part of her.

    • elliesmom says:

      I remember summers like this one as a kid. Lots of late afternoon and early evening thunderstorms. My grandmother was afraid of the storms, and we’d take turns being the one to sit next to her on the sofa. She’d grab our arms so hard we’d end up bruised. I remember summers as an adult living in a valley and watching the lightning strike the hilltops. Here I love it when the lightning strikes the surface of the water.

      Another good reason to not reply is that twitter is backing off on some of the bans because engagement numbers are low, meaning fewer people use it for less time and then twitter value slumps. You’re better off replying to tweets you agree with / make sense.

    Donny Two-Scoops:

    Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration. While this, according to the Senate, is preliminary, with results being announced at a later date, it seems that 74,243 Mail-In Ballots were counted with “no clear record of them being sent.” There were 18,000 voters who were scrubbed from the voter rolls AFTER the election. They also revealed that the voting system was breached or hacked (by who?). Very big printer and ballot problems with different paper used, etc., and MUCH MORE.

    The irregularities revealed at the hearing today amount to hundreds of thousands of votes or, many times what is necessary for us to have won. Despite these massive numbers, this is the State that Fox News called early for a Biden victory. There was no victory here, or in any other of the Swing States either.

    Maricopa County refuses to work together with the Senate and others who are merely looking for honesty, integrity, and transparency. Why do the Commissioners not want to look into this corrupted election? What are they trying to hide? The highly respected State Senator Wendy Rogers said in a tweet the hearing today means we must decertify the election. In any event, the Senate patriots are moving forward with final results to be announced in the not-too-distant future, but based on today’s hearing, why even wait?
