re: JOM party i am mostly a lurker here, only commenting once ina while. But I cannot think of a better group to spend the evening with in conversation and good humor. I hope that you have a great get-together. Please make sure that it is well-reported on by all.
Clarice I have had expensive hearing aids professionally fitted and all that, but for me they don't work any better than the behind-the-ear ones that i get online for $279 each.

Davod The $3.5T is spread over ten years.

I've read a lot about the Sussman indictment. They remark on what a long speaking indictment it is for being just a single false statement claim. It seems to me that Durham may want to get some of his narrative out there in public. That way, it discourages Biden or Garland refusing to agree to any more indictments or shutting the investigation down. It would be much more obvious as a coverup

I always thought that in the story of Sodom and Gomorrah it was odd that the punishment for Lot's wife turning to watch the destruction that she was turned into a pillar of salt. Now it makes sense.

I'm not keeping up with everything here, so i don't know if this is redundant, but Durham's indictment of Sussman--charging him with working for Hilary while peddling the Alpha Bank lie to the FBI--is out.

Reading the NYT article about his purchase of the Eastern Shuttle in 1989, Trump sounds exactly like he does today. "I'm going to create the greatest airline in the world." "I'm going to write the advertising copy. etc. Very vintage Trump.
why hasn't anyone mentioned the Trump Shuttle?
Pin is "Crazy Horse" a good movie?

Ig the link to Insty and the comments thereto say that there have been something like 111,000 "cases", of which only the 5,000 were hospitalized. I don't really believe any of the numbers, but even the numbers they want to admit to don't justify lockdowns.
Ig the graph has to do with hospitalizations, not breakthrough cases.
Narciso, regarding your 1:22 about Black Widow, I don't see how Scarjo could win this suit. If she had a percent of the gross above a certain threshold, she would have made more money. But so would Disney. They presumably made the decision that they would make more money by releasing online rather that in the theater, and in court they could probably show that given the poor theater attendance at this time, Scarjo would not have made an extra penny if Black Widow had a theatrical release.
I'm as annoyed as the rest of you about the CDC's idiotic mandates, but seriously, it's better for this madness to continue so the dems can lose Congress next year. They know they are pissing off the country and that they will likely lose the next election, but they can't help themselves.
I'm so sorry to hear about your nephew, Matt.

Ig, I liked your 3:39 on how no one knows the day or the hour that pretty much anything will happen. Those who say that our republic is now done are over-reading what is going on. We just don't know how it will turn out. I differ with you a little on UNC. I don't think they kow towed to radicals and then were humiliated. I think they were thrilled to think they were going to get this radical star of the moment. Then they were shocked to be hit with the backlash and were forced to delay the tenure decision. True that they are now humiliated, but only because they had to reverse themselves once again and then had it thrown in their faces. I am humiliated and disgusted by what UNC has become since I was tenured there.

Ig, I agree with your analysis of China quietly gobbling up the rest of the world, but I think that Xi did not come out in the open and punch the US in the face. Rather, Trump pointed out what they had been doing for decades, and took action. Maybe Xi over-reacted at that point, but Trump ripped the cover off China's game. We found out about the deep penetration of Chinese military in our academic institutions even before Covid.

Davod I look at OAN every day because at least initially they were doing the most coverage of the Maricopa audit. I think they have a nice site and pretty predictable news stories as many other sites do. Nothing noteworthy

In 1840 William M. Murrell published a book entitled Cruise of the Frigate Columbia Around the World. In it he recounts how men received twelve lashes for trivial offences such as having dirty pots or failing to close the door of a toilet. He himself received twelve lashes for failing to properly mark a piece of clothing and for accidentally spilling ink on the deck. Murrell condemned the flagrant use of authority, but he believed that flogging should be retained for some offences such as stealing... when Senator Hale succeeded in getting a law passed in September 1850 abolishing flogging in the Navy and merchant marine, there were a number of naval officers who thought that the legislation was misguided. history.navy.mil. Delaware whipped people... until 1952 for many crimes ranging from petty theft to rape in what often were public displays outside local jails and prisons. USAToday 7/1/2020.

rse Very interesting about how few of your ancestors were slave owners. It would be instructive to look at the manuscript census for 1860 and see what most white people were doing to make a living. Of course, the idiots would say that while not all white people were slaveowners, the rest were overseers.
