They continue to demonstrate how counterproductive it is to have these hearings at all. Just take the nominations straight to the floor from now on.

Thanks for the info, anonamom.

I think Surber got the link to SBW's editorial from Clarice on Facebook.

I don't think it is required that the nomination go to committee. Apex Predator McConnell might just go straight to the floor for a vote.

This has been a very nice blog. Some of the great commenters left a while back, but some great ones (Iggy, Clarice, etc.) are still here. However our host doesn't seem to think much of our opinions. I feel we have been mocked these last several days. I only come around once in a while now. If any of you hang out on a different site, I would like to know where. (Not Ace of Spades. I already go there, but it's too crowded.)

For those interested, we (census enumerators) weren't trained until July for a census based on April 1st. Then, we didn't go into the field for a few more weeks. Finally, everything was "You have to get it done right now! We have to turn everything in to Washington of Friday!" So we hurried, and often found that the location had filled out the info online, or another census person had been there. We also got help from the Chicago region late in the game. They seemed to be more hindrance than help. We are paid by the hour (and not a lot, but I'm retired and did it mostly to avoid boredom), but we also are paid the government rate of $.58 per mile. I drive an older car, which was paid off long ago, and it costs me about $.07 per mile for gas, and nearly nothing for oil, repairs, etc. I think I make nearly as much in mileage as in salary. This past week, we had 20 people on a conference call. Each of us reported on our progress over the week. We were paid for the time on the call. Each person took just a few minutes, but we each got paid for a couple of hours for being on the call, just listening to stuff that didn't concern us. We could have each called in separately, or they could have called each of us, and saved the government almost 40 hours of pay overall. We aren't done yet. I was doing group quarters (as opposed to knocking on doors), and will be doing transitory locations this week. It looks like another goat roping. I'm not complaining about the work. It's interesting. It's just the standard bureaucratic mess that gets to me. There are some very good and very sharp who are working for the census bureau, but there are also a lot of pretty much useless drones. As I said, normal for government work.

Marlene, I've taken a part time job as a census enumerator. It has been interesting and illuminating. Are you familiar with the term "goat rodeo"?

Iggy, in response to your 11:08, I would assume someone had said "Beetlejuice" three times, and begin an exorcism.

If Biden wins, it won't be "the people" who have chosen. It will be the vote manufacturers and the vote counters who will have chosen. The cheat factor will be greater than normal this year.

Iggy, that Indian marriage thing was reprehensible. I'm still laughing. ;)

Our gracious host should share some of his stash. I'm not sure what he's been drinking or smoking, but this dream certainly doesn't seem to come from a sober position.

Bongino says an "inside source" says Biden is now deteriorating more rapidly, and it will be much more obvious over the next few months.

I'm sure I'm late with this, but just in case it hasn't been posted, our medical "experts" are now conflating virus testing and antibody testing. That is, if you had the virus and beat it months ago, the antibody test will come back positive. It will be counted as a "new" case. I have no idea what percentage of the tests being given now are antibody tests, but that they are being counted at all means we are being intentionally lied to. Also, I'm pretty sure I remember it being discussed on a previous thread here, but I'll add anyway, every single person diagnosed with SARS CoV 2 who died, no matter what the actual cause of death, is being counted as a covid 19 death. In the state of Washington, 5 people who were shot to death, but tested positive, were counted as covid 19 deaths. Remove these deaths from the count and we have a bad flu sized fatality count.

I'm certain that I'm irreversibly contaminated. If you try to decontaminated me, be warned. It won't be a pleasant experience for either of us.

Are we past saying that Mr. Floyd was murdered yet? I'm sure the cop didn't think, "I'll just go ahead an kill this guy, with lots of folks watching. No one will notice."

Iggy, you need to write more. Or you need to share more of what you write. Someone in this group could help you put together a book of essays, or just a book. You could also submit to be published online by any of several sites. your writing and thinking are outstanding. Please consider sharing more.
