Fri. Oct. 23, 2020 – home again today

Cooler with a chance of rain.  We got some short but strong downpours yesterday.  Different parts of town had very different weather.

Spent yesterday driving around and doing some errands.  Had some auction stuff, a radio for me, some household stuff, and I needed to get my ebay item out of storage and packed up. Everything was very spread out geographically.  Very poor planning on my part.

I had to buy a special box to ship the big ebay item in.  It will eventually end up in Germany so it took a while to safely pack it.  Still, nice profit on a quick flip.  $275 on $25 investment, not counting taxes and fees on both sides.   I sold another case of disinfectant too.  Maybe my sales are picking up?  That would be nice.  The UPS guy seemed happy to see me twice in the same week.

The stuff I put in my local industrial auction went for about a dollar a lot.  It was a blowout.  I’d have been better off dumping it in the trash.  No idea why prices were so low.  They were generally low for all the items in the auction, not just mine, but mine were exceptionally low.  Yikes.  I hope he will accept my next load of stuff for consignment.

I didn’t watch the debate.  I’ll look at clips today if there was anything surprising.  I’m betting ‘not’.

FWIW, far more Trump Pense signs in my area than Biden.  Lots of signs for the Dems in lower and state offices though.  Clearly the battle is local.  Vote.  Even Bob voted in the last Presidential election, and he was pretty convinced of the futility of it.  Vote.   Especially for Sheriff and Judges.  Local.  When everything blows up, local is what’s left.

And keep stacking.

  1. I wonder why people bother to vote in California, it does not matter

    That is the reason that people like Pelosi got into office, and remain in office.

    Here’s another one I love
    pusillanimous

    My uncle used to just call them “piss-ants”. My dad used to call everyone a meat-head long before Archie Bunker.

    Ha! Not a comparison I had thought of … but I’ll be using now.

    The MSM bias is beyond bizarre.

    (From Brad on yesterday’s post.) Not at all. They’re Democrat activists with bylines, as Bill Quick has been saying for years.

    In my immediate vicinity, I see a lot of MJ Hegar signs, but the family lives nearby.

    The campaign HQ is not back next to the Spec’s in the Ikea parking lot. We checked this weekend out of curiosity.

    We’ve been getting mailers for the Subcontinent candidate, Donna Imam, running for Congress with a bulk mailing permit indicating an origin point somewhere in Dallas. However, Imam is not listed on the Justice Democrats web site as one of their supported players which include three of “The Squad”.

  6. Well as a California Republican I say voting for pres or statewide office is useless. Voting on representatives and propositions is essential. The Reconquista is here.

    It has been there for a while.

    On one trip to visit friends out in California over 20 years ago, I saw a number of signs and stenciled graffiti around The Mission repeating the same slogan in Spanish. I don’t remember the exact wording, but, when I asked my friends to explain, they told me that the slogan in English was, “Excuse us, but the place is ours.”

    At this point, however, I don’t believe the threat from relaxation of immigration laws would come from points south. There are only so many unskilled labor jobs to go around, the US is expensive, and the culture here is not viewed as healthy in many places in Central and South America. Remove the criminal prosecution of being present in the country without permission, and I could easily see 10-20 million Number One Sons from China and The Subcontinent showing up in short order, staked by wealthy families on the premise that work permits, permanent residency, and citizenship would quickly follow.

    The Chinese Number One Son who lived next to me bugged out a few weeks ago, probably back to California — I think he works for Apple — and left the house in the hands of property managers to take care of renting the real estate. The new resident is Subcontinent Number One Son who shot me a dirty look yesterday when I waived as he rolled his trashcan in from the curb.

    Maybe the HOA left him a nastygram on the door about the can. It is the one thing I’ve found that they are strict about.

    Take out a big, healthy tree that cuts the air conditioning bills for three houses without review? No problemo.

    Leave the trashcan in front of the gate to the backyard overnight because the garden path is under a couple of inches of standing water? Violation!

  8. LOL! I got my absentee ballot from Nevada. Should I vote again for the tRump?

    Sure, but my family was originally from Chicago. Left just after WWII, but the thought persists. I lived there briefly in 1971, and saw it up close and personal. Can’t imagine what it might be today, but not interested.

  9. LOL! I got my absentee ballot from Nevada. Should I vote again for the tRump?

    Was that a mass mailing thing, forwarded from your Las Vegas address? Did everybody on Nevada voter rolls get one?

    Don’t even think about it, Gringo. They’ll prosecute you.

    Because of football, we had to watch the left-wing NBC station in Austin for news/weather last night. Surpisingly, they’re starting to cover voter fraud stories, including the one in Harris county that popped in other media outlets a few weeks ago.

    Maybe the local TV newsrooms are starting to realize their jobs could be in jeopardy after the election. Regardless of the end result, credibility is shot, and advertising during the news is pretty much it for network affiliates’ revenue. In every place I’ve lived in the last 20 years, the Fox stations in town run the most serious weather departments so the Media General and Gannett-type operations have work to do.

    No, we didn’t watch the debate. The DS9 rerun was quality enough to rewatch despite us having seen it earlier in quarantine lockdown, and we had new “Discovery”.

    Ok, “Discovery” overdid the ‘G’ in the LGBTQ antics last night, but the ‘L’ representation is obviously the writers’ favorite right now.

  11. Ok, maybe I partially understand New Number One Son Neighbor’s unfriendly behavior yesterday — he’s out in back of his house having a weed break right now.

    I don’t care what people do to themselves. I’m not calling in the cops, but I wish he would take it inside.

    But,but,but there is no voter fraud. The goobermint won’t even check, right?

  13. My neighbor smokes a cigarette while on a call every afternoon. Used to just be on Friday when he worked from home, but now he’s home every day. I have no trouble smelling it in my backyard, several meters away.

    Of course, I also have no problem with him doing it. If you can’t smoke outside, where should you smoke?? It’s just a smell, I’ll leave pleasant or not to the individual smeller, but there are worse, and longer lasting. Takes me a lot longer to smoke a cigar, if I smoked cigars that is.

    It’s also true that someone in my immediate area occasionally burns a fattie late at night. That smell carries quite well too.

    And BBQ, campfires, and laundry in the dryer, and lots of things.

    So inhale if you want to, just be aware that someone might also be making a note of it….

  14. I watched the first episode of “Lovecraft Country” last night. 1950’s setting. The first 2/3 had a little of everything: WHITEY! sucks, Black Gay sex., rednecks, raycis cops. The last 1/3 finally got down to the horror. Not bad and I will continue to watch. The portrayal of Blacks in the 50’s was accurate, I think. Smart, capable and discriminated against. There was one scene with a rap music track. That didn’t fit at all. Stick with the 50’s music of Black musicians.

    Also watched the first two episodes of “Strange Angel” (CANCELLED after two seasons). 1930’s setting. Very bizarre and I’m not sure if there is a supernatural content or not. Half CalTech rocket development and half satanic rites.

  15. Costco is selling a covid at home test.

    https://www.costco.com/covid-test.html

    you still send the sample in, but you don’t need to get the swab to the brain…

    The saliva tests have a lot more false positives, but ~ $100 will allow companies to test all of their employees once and start to get offices reopen.

    However, there is no point if sick people won’t stay home. Just treating Covid-19 the same way as we do TB would burn out the problem in a month, but that doesn’t fit the political agenda.

    Make no mistake — Costco benefits from the agenda and will shortly renew their ownership stake in the WA State Governor’s Mansion.

  16. “Joe Biden Promises A Pathway To Citizenship For 11 Million Illegal Immigrants”

    Do people understand what this will do to our nation ? There will be floods of new illegals expecting to become citizens and get the freebies too. Many millions of them.

    That’s exactly what people warned of with the first amnesty, for 2 million illegals. “If you do this, next time it will be 20 million.” Which is where the US is today, somewhere around 20 million illegals.

    Grant another amnesty, and you just as well open the borders, because there won’t be any point any more.

    Yes, we have at least 20 million illegals in the USA. And they are not all from Mexico. They are also from China, India, Honduras, San Salvador, Russia, Libya, etc. Every armpit in the world where people are searching for a better life, free from oppression.

    Many illegals in the USA are here by overstaying a visitor visa. I have no idea what the actual numbers are but they are staggering. That big beautiful southern wall is not going to help when we welcome them with open arms. And many of them arrive on a plane from somewhere else with a visitor or student visa.

    My real estate buddy had 30 or 35 rental houses in southwest Houston in 2008. All of them were section 8 housing. Many of his tenants were illegals. And just about about all of the illegals went home in 2008, causing him to default on his note carrying the rental properties. He lost all of the rental houses when the bank seized them. It was really tough on him, I had no idea at the time.

  17. “Biden Says He Would “Transition” Away From The Oil Industry: “It Has To Be Replaced””
    https://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2020/10/22/biden_i_would_transition_from_the_oil_industry_it_has_to_be_replaced.html

    Replaced with what ? Nuclear, no, that is nasty according to them. Dams, no, we are busy destroying those across the western USA for fish. Geothermal, no, none conveniently located to the electricity users. Wind, not much and the wind mostly blows at night time. Solar, not much and 1 MW per acre production and does not make electricity after 5 pm.

    These dum-bro-crats are freaking crazy and want to upheave our society just to do it. Freaking crazy assholes.

    BTW, there are 15 million people working in the oil and natural gas industry in the USA. The average pay is over $50,000/year. The numbers are staggering.

    Just imagine a future where they install a 15 amp breaker at your house from the pole. You will be able to run a few lights and a few small motors. No air conditioning. No electric heat.

  19. Just imagine a future where they install a 15 amp breaker at your house from the pole. You will be able to run a few lights and a few small motors. No air conditioning. No electric heat.

    The immediate goal is to take out private ownership of cars. Or, at least, ownership by the bottom 95% of the population.

    Mobility as a Service. MaaS.

    The demo I had blow up in New York which led to my f-bombs and subsequent firing was demonstrating tech which will part of the effort. It isn’t a secret.

    Of course, with my former management in charge, hilarity will ensue … for now.

  20. I can’t see the urban mass transit entities allowing individual automobiles to enter the MaaS market.

  21. I can’t see the urban mass transit entities allowing individual automobiles to enter the MaaS market.

    They are already here. Uber and Lyft.

  22. Well as a California Republican I say voting for pres or statewide office is useless. Voting on representatives and propositions is essential. The Reconquista is here.

    I am wondering when California is going to vote on a 100% income tax on all income above $75,000/year. With all of the freebies like community homes and electricty, you will just need your income for weed and beer.

  23. I can’t see the urban mass transit entities allowing individual automobiles to enter the MaaS market.

    The last 20 years of car production have been geared towards building a US fleet which can be automated under a central command authority — like a mass transit entity — with a software upgrade. At the very minimum, cars produced since 2000-01 can be retrofitted for automation.

    Now, the fleet is there, but the central authority software is not so the large cities are looking at tolling the surface streets, “congestion pricing”, with the goal to discourage all but the very wealthy from entering the urban cores with private vehicles.

  24. LOL! I got my absentee ballot from Nevada. Should I vote again for the tRump?

    Is that a felony in Nevada like it is in Texas ?

  25. I watched the first episode of “Lovecraft Country” last night. 1950’s setting. The first 2/3 had a little of everything: WHITEY! sucks, Black Gay sex., rednecks, raycis cops.

    No Lovecraft in these parts for me. Buffy is as far as I go down that road.

  26. Well as a California Republican I say voting for pres or statewide office is useless. Voting on representatives and propositions is essential. The Reconquista is here.

    I am wondering when California is going to vote on total income seizure (a tax !) on all income above $75,000/year.

    16% top state tax rate in addition to a 37% top Federal rate and only $20,000 deduction for SALT does that pretty effectively when you consider that a lot of people pay at least half of their take home towards the mortgage in the tech hubs out there. Plus, the last time I was in CA in 2012, I paid ~ 11% sales taxes at the deli where I bought dinner. $25 for a personal size pizza and a bottle of soda.

    I’ll bet that SALT deduction changes back under Biden. And California will get a bailout along with Illinois.

    Just one more reason for me to stay out of the inner rings around Houston.

    I live 35 miles away from downtown Houston and like it that way. In fact, I would like to live 70 miles away from downtown Houston.

  28. “Joe Biden Proposes Reviving Obama Social Security Gun Ban”
    https://davidharrisjr.com/steven/joe-biden-proposes-reviving-obama-social-security-gun-ban/

    “Joe Biden says he will revive the ban on gun ownership for certain Social Security recipients. If someone cannot handle their finances, they are not entitled to defend themselves. This policy was put in place under the Obama/Biden administration and it was repealed by President Trump and now Joe Biden is promising to reinstate the unfair president.”

    “This is not the only thing Biden plans to do to circumvent the Second Amendment. He wants to ban ammo purchases online and tax you for guns you already own. Can gun confiscation be far away? Biden claims that he is a supporter of the Second Amendment.”

    “But don’t believe it. His candidacy is a two-story house. You hear one story when you buy the house. There is a totally different story once you have bought it.”

    Funny, I don’t remember exceptions on gun ownership in the USA Constitution.

    “(The following is purely satire)”

    “In order to prove they did not oppose gun owners, Obama and Biden decided to go hunting together. Before they left, they were told if they got lost to fire in the air three times and someone would come and rescue them.”

    “Sure enough, they got lost, so Joe fired three times in the air but no one came. Later he fired in the air three more times and still, no one came. This went on all afternoon. Obama said that he was beginning to worry. Biden said, “You’re worried? I’m almost out of arrows.””

    I imagine that, eventually, toll lanes will run from Austin-Bergstrom airport, down 71, to meet the lanes driving west from Houston on I-10. Just in the six years we’ve been here, we’ve seen serious urban growth move beyond Bastrop, pushing east out of Austin.

    “IMPROVED late-season yield prospects in greater Europe and Australia have lifted the estimate for global wheat production by 5.9 million tonnes (Mt) from the previous Agricultural Market Information Systems (AMIS) estimate released last month.”

    “The lift was offset by a total 1Mt decline in projections in Canada and Argentina.”

    “The net 4.8Mt increase lifts the forecast for the world 2020-21 wheat crop to a record 764.9Mt, pipping by just a few million tonnes the previous records set in 2019-20 and 2017-18 (chart 1).”

    Finally some good news this year !

  33. It has dropped from 87 F to 73 F here today with the arrival of the very windy cold front at 3pm. Nice ! And some rain at long last.

  34. I snacked on a hand full of Trisquits. It’s been a while since the last box but it seems they were close to two inches square. Not 1.25 x 1.5 inches. Well, yeah, I /do/ have a ruler in the drawer with the spatulas and whisks.

    Anything, I suppose, to make fat people happy. The box says a serving is six crackers that equal 120 calories.
    I’m pretty sure it was six crackers and closer to 180 calories. Maybe 210. I’m too lazy to figure the area covered by six new size compared to six of the old size.

    They taste the same. A bit light on salt but that could be me.

    The cold front arrived around Noon. With just a bit of rain as I finished hauling twenty bags of wood pellets from the truck to the barn. In my handy-dandy wagon. Six bags for two trips, seven for the last. I carried the first bag because I’m going that way to get the wagon… 🙂
    Yeah, I know the side by side can carry ten bags a trip. And then from the side by side through the gate and bleh, an extra 20 feet toting per bag plus the darn door wants to blow shut just as you get there. Every time. And if you prop the door open you have to walk around it and why the heck hasn’t ANYONE pruned that stupid tree? The wagon works better, mentally for me, and some exercise can’t hurt. My upper shoulders disagree but they don’t get a vote.

    I’m set for pellets. Forty “fresh” bags @ 40# each plus 10 or 12 from last year. Unless something breaks and I don’t have the part (ha!) I won’t be back to Hoover’s until next Summer.

    Temps went from 76F with about 800% humidity and not a breath of air moving before Noon to three hours later and 58F plus pretty breezy. I can’t report on the current humidity. Whatever it is seems to offend Penny.

    An exciting day, eh?

    It’s not fiction. It’s based on the real life of Jack Parsons, one of the founders of the Jet Propulsion Lab at Cal Tech (now a NASA GOCO facility). He was not into Satanism from what I have read, but Thelema which was started by Alastair Crowley. A pagan, pantheistic religion that had sex rites as part of the ceremonies. There were a bunch of Thelema groups in the LA area back then. L. Ron Hubbard was involved, among others.

    Well, yes, remember when Mom was here? Crank it up to 80F, go outside and leave the door open? So, yes, I have the t-stat programmed so you can’t set higher than 72. It’s programmed for WINTER!

    “Oh. I’m going to find some sweat pants.”

    I thought I was the thin blooded one.

    And the t-stat? It’s programmed so you can’t go below 77F on Cool.

    Turn on a fan, take off some clothes or put on a sweater. You don’t do $140 for the biggest electric bill of the year otherwise.

  40. I don’t get the Sunglasses Smiley Face. Is that good or bad or just a “done read your public stupidity”? Shrug.

    Sunglasses Smiley Face means to me that the comment was cool to me. Prepping for winter is cool !

    The prognosticators and I disagree. I think that we are going to have a tough winter this year with at least one deep freeze down into the teens, hopefully not into the single digits like December of 1989 . The prognosticators are prognosticating that south Texas will not have a freeze this year. One of us is wrong.


  41. One of us is wrong.

    Remember Comet Kohutek (excuse the spelling)? Wilma was a little thing, seven weeks old, I toted her around in the front pocket of my coat. We had lots of rain, the tanks filled, and froze…. and tossing bowling ball size rocks onto the ice was fun. The rocks bounced and it sounded like striking a huge gong.
    We were all too chicken to try walking on the ice.

    We haven’t had that weather since. We are due.

    As I mentioned before, my middle brother and I walked across our parents frozen swimming pool without incident. Feeling tough (and cold), we then walked out across Lavaca Bay. We got about a quarter mile out and realized that we were above 10 ft of water with no idea how thick the ice was. We quickly went back to my parents bulkhead. Which, got destroyed by the sea ice.

    Yes, we are due for a hard freeze. Not this year please.

    Well, yes, remember when Mom was here? Crank it up to 80F, go outside and leave the door open? So, yes, I have the t-stat programmed so you can’t set higher than 72. It’s programmed for WINTER!

    I have not seen a thermostat that you can set the limits on it.

    How low of a temperature can your emu take ?

    “Arizona Republican Rep. Paul Gosar has called for defunding National Public Radio after the outlet officially refused to cover the Hunter Biden laptop scandal (while happily peddling anti-Trump rumors for years) – calling it a ‘waste of time.'”

    Why is the USA funding an activist outfit like NPR anyway ?

  46. I finished hauling twenty bags of wood pellets from the truck to the barn.

    What kind of barn is it that you can’t drive a truck into? Never been a farmer, but every one I saw had BIG doors. Asking for a friend. 😉

    https://nationalfile.com/exclusive-texas-poll-watcher-testifies-on-2020-voter-fraud-in-houston-has-photos/

    “Texas poll watcher Raymond T. Stewart, a retired police officer, submitted a sworn affidavit Thursday that was provided to the Harris County District Attorney’s Office. That affidavit, exclusively obtained by NATIONAL FILE, alleges that a Houston precinct judge and staff illegally used a stack of driver’s licenses in their possession to allow people to vote illegally in the 2020 election at a drive-through voting window created by the Coronavirus pandemic. Stewart’s affidavit and photos of the scheme are presented below. The acting precinct judge’s identity has been confirmed by the Harris County Clerk’s Office and insiders identify her as a Democrat.”

    Why in the world would they have a stack of Texas driver’s licenses in the voting area ?
