scenes 8:11 - I was going to comment, but George pretty well sums it up.
re George's 3rd point in this scattershots: CNBC? Hardly FOX or Breitbart and even they're starting to see the insanity. BootyJudge - "I don’t want to get bogged down in a semantic or philosophical argument over what to call something.” Oh, right! Because words have no fixed meaning! Let's just toss the dictionary away! Money quote: "We do have the money. That’s the thing. Like, we abundantly do have the money because the bill is paid for.” Hear that? The feds have paid off all the fed debt and have trillions in cash sitting in a bank account. Or a printing press. You could not give Putin and Xi a better gift.
Walt 7:53 - If only. It seems Americans can only learn what's important once the thing of importance is removed. Then they're told to blame Trump.

Welcome home, Rebanes! Glad you could freely travel as that is not a possibility for many now-a-days. Be sure (once you unpack and unwind) to pen a few thoughts on the "lockdown" as seen by you on your travels. We just bid safe travel to our good friends from Nevada County as they departed back home from several days here. They were happy to see here in Idaho a community operating pretty much free of any restrictions.

GR - "The bottom line of all that we’ve witnessed is that 1) there is no consistency in what people are doing and 2) the state-to-state public policies. How/when/where people wear masks and socially distance varies all over the place." Agreed. My wife and I have traveled by car and airline during the "lockdown" this last year and almost a half and have experienced differing attitudes depending on who we are with and where we are. The schools around here have been back in session since last Sept. Some stores still ask for patrons to use a mask but notably the eldest refuse. I would say at least half of the restaurants and businesses around here have no mandates at all for any sort of social distancing or masks. Amazingly our economy is booming. Who would have thought? It's not a matter of denying the existence of a virus, its a matter of wanting to live our life freely according to our own sense of safety. The frightened children can decide to hide under their beds, but please allow others the right to not do the same.
Don 3:19 - Paul Emery says he approves of everything Biden does and says. Also Paul Emery is on record as being extremely annoyed at people that lie. Maybe that's why Paul Emery won't show his face here-a-bouts any more.

Crossed-out 9:47 - "...yet Mr. Trump wants an endorsement of his stolen claim to be a litmus test for every Republican candidate.” When did Trump say that?

The people that claim they own 'science'. "If those people don’t want to get vaccinated, that’s fine for you, but you can’t spread it to other people that are vaccinated." So - what good is vaccination? It clearly won't stop you from contracting CV19. It just prevents you from spreading the disease? WTH is going on here?

Crossed-Up 10:02 - And how was this fraud determined? When folks want secure elections, you leftys start screaming "racism". Typical lefty hypocrisy.

Don 8:48 - "What may come back to haunt the prosecution..." Nope. Nothing 'haunts' people with no scruples. Mitchell was hardly an impartial jurist. Mitchell: "I didn't see any remorse." That was before the verdict. Why should an innocent person show remorse? Ah - because Mitchell had him judged as guilty all along. Read the whole CNN article. Mitchell should have never been on that jury.
"Pronk, who owns and runs a house-moving business, didn’t finish high school and had no training or engineering background when he embarked on the project." Yet he built his own sub. “It was difficult,” Pronk said. “Once the internet came along, then I could really build submarines, because then the world is your oyster. I just researched the hell out of everything.” University Of California grads can't find their own ass on a map with both hands.

Yapping Yorkie 9:00 - "Also no one can compete with Trump for lying to the American public." It's true because the Yapping Yipping Yorkie says so on a regular basis. Classic case of the 'Big Lie' technique. Sorry Yipping Little Yorkie - we conservatives live in reality. I'm sure there's a soy-boy confab down by the Yuba where you can peddle that crap.
Don 7:03 - "the propaganda ministry of truth has decided to not catalogue them anymore." You got that right. "Kessler has determined that Biden does not lie enough..." Now, how can you determine that if you have already declared you aren't going to keep a count? Maybe the yapping Yorkie with the little paws waving in the air who claims to care sooooo much about lies can chime in? It's the logic free zone. It's Leftism.

Left-wing liar 1:56 - Just as I said, you have zero proof. Peddle your lies at DK or Slate. Unlike George's diverse blog, you can just spout your BS at those brain-dead places and no one will question anything. The fact that you think I might live in a cave and not have internet or TV shows how out of touch you are.

Left-wing Liar 9:27 - "Have you ever heard of Donald Trump?" Why yes! I believe he was our president for 4 years. Now - do you have any evidence that Trump 'fomented racism and other divisions in our country'? Yeah - I didn't think so.

Don 9:07 - Why are you surprised? Hunter can teach a master class on fake news. And getting away with it. Say - how's that investigation of Hunter lying on his gun permit application coming along?
Left-Wing noise machine 5:37 - "Barry, it would help if you even had a clue about what is really going on in the world with the right wing noise machine." Yeah, Barry - You followed one incorrect story so that proves you don't know jack. Of course the left has, and is, following one incorrect story after another but somehow they gots the TRUTH! Maybe our lefty friends can clue us in about all the BS the brain-dead POTUS they voted for is spewing. Maybe we conservatives are a little more concerned with the fed govt drifting into KGB territory. Maybe if our lefty friends pulled their heads out of their asses they would realize the NAZIs they claim they fear are already deeply ensconced in our govt. It's always bad when the rule of law is violated by the govt and there are no repercussions. It's nothing new. But now we know for a fact that people in the highest positions of trust have openly violated the law and no one is even trying to bring them to justice. Now that we have started down that road, we join all the other 3rd world corrupt shit-holes into a descent that ends in anarchy and violence. Special note: Women and POC will suffer the most. Just look at the rest of the world and world history. You want mayhem? White males and their families will be the least affected. Proven fact. But you go ahead with your left-wing horse shit. It's seems to be working real good in those bastions of left-wing governance. Name any large Dem-led American city. They have become or are heading for crap status.

Walt 10:33 - Funny you should mention that. Here's the latest: Oh, yeah - a 1K HP Hummer that costs over $112K now qualifies you as an "environmentalist". Can't imagine why every tradesman in America wouldn't rush out and buy a new electric truck for over a hundred grand. The sea level will sink just at the thought of such wonderfulness.
Say - here's an amazing article: by Ben Steverman. Wow. I'll bet his next hard-hitting expose' talks about parents teaching their kids not to run out in front of traffic. Money quote: “We’re not going to evade taxes, but we’re going to avoid them and defer them as much as we can,” Bill Schwartz, managing director at Wealthspire Advisors, said in an interview. “We’re only beginning to explore. Give us a year or two and we’ll find ways around things.” Boy - I'll bet he needed the cunning of the Veritas Project to uncover that bit of secret lore. I swear there is apparently a much larger percentage of children dropped on their skulls after birth than I imagined. "Humans watch for large holes they might fall into when the go for a walk". It's pretty clear Ben won't get an invite to the White House for the next Christmas party.
re DB 6:35 - Ya gotta love Little Teddy Wheeler: "The city is beginning to recover, but self-described anarchists who engage in regular criminal destruction don’t want things to open up, to recover," Wheeler said. "They want to prevent us from doing the work of making a better Portland for everyone. They want to burn, they want to bash." But Teddy, the left says they're quite polite and non-violent! Burning? Why that's just an ultra-right-wing talking point! Stupid little soy-boy. Anyone with a clue knows how to stop this. You find out the who the Alpha is and you take him (or it) out and tell the rest to scram. But of course taking out the Alpha might result in Little Teddy Wheeler out of a position of power in Oregon. Or maybe he just doesn't have a frickin clue. Portland deserves what they vote for.
Don 3:43 - You're spreading more disinfo. Our grand and glorious POTUS has declared that antifa is just an 'idea'. And he's going to fly to other countries to tell them what's what. They can't wait.
fish 8:30 - "What on earth the two of you could discuss that you might understand and simultaneously not bore our genial host to the point of coma." Paul babbles away about the latest poll and how evil Trump is and George makes notes on his study of primitive life forms.
Booby X - "One explanation could be simply because people are sick and tired of all the lies and bullcrap that comes our of the right wing noise machine and the mindless repeaters who echoed those lies." Ah yes - so many lies! And yet poor Booby can't name a single lie that gets 'echoed' here. Wassamatter Booby? Trump still inside your brain? That shiny new Biden thingie lettin' ya down? Now - get on your knees in front of your St George Floyd altar and beg forgiveness for your whiteness 3 times and then send some more money to the Buying Large Mansions folks. There's a good little boy.
re my 7:10 - AOC wants to help make my point. Thanks, babe!
Don 8:50 - "They are going to beat this dead horse..." It's a remarkably spirited steed for being dead. It still animates the useful idiots. Listen to the Dems rhetoric on this issue and watch how the various Tass agencies in this country cover it. It buries the inconvenient issues such as Gov Cuomo and Hunter Biden. And it gets packaged as part and parcel with the current push by the Dems to become the permanent party in fed power. If you are against the laughably named 'infrastructure' actions, against the ballot stuffing bills or if you are against packing the court then you are racist and want to gun down all the blacks. As long as that horse has traction and moves, it matters not how foul-smelling and hideous a beast it is - it looks like it might just get the Dems to their desired destination. God help us.
