Today's History Lesson




This clip from Aerial America's (Smithsonian) Maryland & Delaware posits that the positioning of the seat and government and a church  was an early declaration of separation of church and state. 

These people never give up. 

First, Maryland was, as were many of the earliest colonies, created for freedom of religion. Maryland was founded by George Calvert.

When Calvert converted to Catholicism in 1625 it meant his disqualification from holding public office, but his friendship with King James remained.[13]Calvert had had an early interest in the administration of colonial affairs and petitioned James for a charter to provide a religious haven for Catholics persecuted in England as well as to extend the territories of the English Empire. [wiki]

Finally, the "separation of church and state" is a fanciful "right" nowhere found in our Constitution, but rather a bastardization of
Jefferson's Letter to the Danbury Baptists

John McCain the Manchurian Candidate













'MISFILED' CIA RECORDING PROVES HIS ENTIRE CAREER BUILT ON A LIE


I have always felt that charges made by McCain's co-POWthat he was an abject traitorwere, while smacking of likelihood,   unproved.  That McCain and John Kerry ( proved liar and traitor) had each others back in recent times could only be explained by that peculiar solidarity. Now, with McCain on his death bed, we discover that the CIA had the proof all along. They just misfiled it. In the (my) vernacular, John McCain is a piece of shit. Ask God for forgiveness while you can.

THEN


Well, the news is not good.  I don't want to say bad, but, yeah, not good.

I saw the doctor and we went over the radiology report.  He kindly pointed out that it says that the cysts are on the right side, and both of my tumors were on the left side.  So, I got a referral to a neurosurgeon and had to wait a few days to hear from him about an appointment. 

When I did hear from his office (Tuesday of this week) it was only to request that I send copies of the operative report from the brain surgery they did on me back in 1998 for his review before I came in for an appointment.  This is bad, I think, because in the 20 years since that happened, no one has ever asked me for that.  I think it means he wants to map out a second surgery. 

Getting it was not as bad as I thought it would be.  At first, it looked like it would take over a month to request by mail, but, we arranged for his office to request and they should have it by early next week, and I should get an appointment soon after.

I've had to put the New York thing on hold while I figure this out, but they assure me that as long as Aunt Eleanora is alive, the offer is still there for me.  So, I wait here, trying not to panic, and just try to keep busy while the paper flows from Miami to [Here]. 

Pray for me Rodger.  Please.

I am, and I hope y'all will too.

COPD BLOWS


People are always asking. "Say, Rodge ..

I first heard of this harmonica trick 40+ years ago  on the Mike Douglas Show. At the time I was was a 2-3 pack a day smoker.When I quit (for good) in 1997 I was 4 packs.  Fast forward to diagnosed COPD.  Three years ago, remembering that Mike Douglas Show advice, I bought a harmonica and set about using a You Tube "Play Mr. Tambourine Man" primer to get started.  Using that, and a Fitbit to monitor my steps (and calories) I was soon enough 30 years old again.  Seriously.  Alas, for various and sundry reasons I lapsed to the point where I was sent to a pulmonary rehab 3 days/week. Worked like magic and after 3 months I was back in the pink (and my insurance was used).  However, by that time my knees had suffered the slings and arrows of time, and .... you know. GAH!
Blood OXY
Things got so bad that, what the hell,  lets do the harmonica again.  After just a week here is todays blood/oxygen level after doing *I wish all the girls were like ... for 10 minutes. Yesterday I logged a 100 Blood Oxy. Holy Fn Sht!. This morning a 97.  (The highest I got during pulmonary rehab was 97. FWIW.)

You're welcome.

Why is it  that nobody’s invented a  remote control device that would zap a phone call and automatically ignore  future calls?  I will guess that the inventor would become an overnight millionaire.


By the bye, we have been using a Panasonic phone system that barks up that tree but the data base was filled within 6 months and no (intuitive) way  to empty it.

Real King of France Accused
of Drive-in Sexual Assault
Drudge-Satire


Bunny
A retired seventy-five year old Baltimore manicurist Bunny Winslow (right) filed a $25 million sexual assault suit against obscure blogger Real King of France.  The attempted rape supposedly occurred in 1959.

"On our first (and only) blind date he took me to the Timonium Drive-in.  We weren't there more than five minutes when he put his arm around me.  When I turned, his hand touched my breast.  He made no attempt to remove it for several seconds and then he gave it a pinch.   I could smell his lust. To this day, every time the movie The Brain Eaters is shown on television I'm thrown into a  deep depression that will last upwards of a year. He was wearing Old Spice, and he had a black car, a Ford I think.  The next day at school I saw him with a bunch of boys and they were all laughing;  I know he was bragging about feeling me up.  He never asked me out again.

She never married.

Mr RKOF commented, after being served, "I've never seen 'The Brain Eaters.' I

t's rumored that super blogger Doug Ross will ask him to return all of his Fabulous 50 Blog awards.

I STG, I never touched her.

Revolutionary times



                         






The danger to the country this time around is that the Left has so destroyed the old protocols of the opposition party that it will be hard to resurrect them when progressives return to power.

We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary.





SCROLL

As the Resistance goes from one ploy to the next, it ignores its string of failed prior efforts, forgetting everything and learning nothing….

Anti- and Never-Trump op-ed writers have long ago run out of superlatives. Trump is the worst, most, biggest — fill in the blank — in the history of the presidency, in the history of the world, worse even than Mao, Mussolini, Stalin, or Hitler….

Everything from the NFL to late-night comedy shows have become Trump-hating venues….

Insidiously and incrementally, we are in the process of normalizing violence against the elected president of the United States
Each cycle of hysteria demands another, as the race to the bottom has descended into which celebrity or politician can discover the most provocative — or crude — Trump expletive. “S***” and “f***” are now the ordinary vocabulary of angry Democratic politicos and officeholders. Are we reaching a point in the so-far-failed Resistance where little is left except abject violence in the manner of the Roman or French Revolution? The problem for Trump’s pop-culture foes is not whether to imagine or advocate killing the president. That’s a given. They just need to agree on the means of doing so: decapitation (Kathy Griffin), incineration (David Crosby), stabbing (the Shakespeare in the Park troupe), shooting (Snoop Dogg), explosives (Madonna), old-fashioned, Lincoln-style assassination (Johnny Depp), death by elevator (Kamala Harris), hanging (a CSU professor), or simple generic assassination (a Missouri state legislator)….

Insidiously and incrementally, we are in the process of normalizing violence against the elected president of the United States. If all this fails to delegitimize Trump, fails to destroy his health, or fails to lead to a 2018 midterm Democratic sweep and subsequent impeachment, expect even greater threats of violence. The Resistance and rabid anti-Trumpers have lost confidence in the constitutional framework of elections, and they’ve flouted the tradition by which the opposition allows the in-power party to present its case to the court of public opinion…..

The danger to the country this time around is that the Left has so destroyed the old protocols of the opposition party that it will be hard to resurrect them when progressives return to power.

We are entering revolutionary times. The law is no longer equally applied. The media are the ministry of truth. The Democratic party is a revolutionary force. And it is all getting scary. [FULL]

I've pretty much ignored the daily news clutter.  Today's news is a carbon copy continuation of last year's media screech that Hillary is unbeatable when common sense told me that most of us hate her guts.  There was no doubt in my mind that Trump was the right candidate - the only acceptable candidate- and would prevail. So, all this crap about the Dems taking over Congress and impeaching Trump is, well, more mind control crap.  Trump will win again, because we are not a stupid people.

However ...

Hanson is quit right in saying, "the Left have so destroyed the old protocols of the opposition party that it will be hard to resurrect them when progressives return to power".

There have been acts of high treason, and attempts to overthrow our government.  Those behind it must be made to pay the price. Chop-Chop.

Don't Talk to the Police



I've posted this bit of advice a few time over the years.  Still the best advice ever.

The Plymouth





But... let's start from the beginning. In today's video, we'll tell you about a rare car that was underground for half a century. Who put it there and why? Let's find out

Buried 58 Plymouth


58 plymouthThat story about about the time capsuled '57 Plymouth struck a chord.  Shown right: I polish our brand new 1958 Plymouth Belvedere, the car I would later drive after getting my license.  Alas, almost immediately after getting said license I was  sent to pick my sister up at the Jr. High.  I turned into the school driveway and noticed she was with another girl. Was I going to show off?  Bet your ass. Put full pedal  and lost control while negotiation the curve.  Wound up with the car teeter tottering over a curb.  Our only carand required extensive repairs which I was made to repay by becoming full time yard boy.  Worse, no car for a month.

A year later, me and best friend Wally were cruising about (although I was still only allowed to drive a total of 50 miles). Went to Beaver Springs, a local quarry everyone swam at.  Looking  for girls.  Bingo, two lassies leaving the Springs. Put full pedal, sending a rooster tail of gravel behind.  Slowed down, hit the reverse button. Whoops.  It seems you cannot use reverse while the car is still  moving forward, All sort of bad noise.  The girls laughed.  I couldn't back up. 


58 plymouth
Wally pushed me back so I could try "D," which thank God—  worked. Now, sitting at home were my parents and their best friends who'd flown in from Chicago.  The next day they were doing the DC tourArlington, FBI Bldg. etc. My bedroom was off the carport, so when I heard them piling into the car I prayed. Prayed that somehow the car would back out. No.  I heard dad exclaim "What the deuce!" Took me a summer of mowing lawns to pay for that one. 

Good times.

 Alaska
  More than half of the coastline of the  States is in Alaska.



Amazon
  The Amazon rain forest produces more than 20% of the world's oxygen supply


The Amazon River pushes so much water into the Atlantic Ocean that, more than one hundred miles at sea off the mouth of the river, one can dip fresh water out of the ocean The volume of water in the Amazon river is greater than the next eight largest rivers in the world combined and three times the flow of all rivers in the United States.


Antarctica
  Antarctica is the only land on our planet that is not owned by any country. Ninety percent of the world's ice covers Antarctica. This ice also represents seventy percent of all the fresh water in the world. As strange as it sounds, however, Antarctica is essentially a desert; the average yearly total precipitation is about two inches. Although covered with ice (all but 0.4% of it, ice.), Antarctica is the driest place on the planet, with an absolute humidity lower than the Gobi desert.
 
Brazil
   Brazil got its name from the nut, not the other way around.


Canada

Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined. Canada is an Indian word meaning ' BigVillage'.


Chicago

Next to Warsaw, Chicago has the largest Polish population in the world. (Aha! I knew that!)



Detroit

 Woodward Avenue in Detroit, Michigan, carries the designation M-1, so named because it was the first paved road anywhere.


Damascus , Syria
 
Damascus, Syria, was flourishing a couple of thousand years before Rome was founded in 753 BC making it the oldest continuously inhabited city in existence.

New York City

The term 'The Big Apple' was coined by touring jazz musicians of the 1930s who used the slang expression 'apple' for any town or city. Therefore, to play New York City Is to play the big time - The Big Apple.

  There are more Irish in New York City than in Dublin, Ireland; more Italians in New York City than in Rome, Italy; and more Jews in New York City than in Tel Aviv, Israel .

  Ohio

      There are no natural lakes in the state of Ohio, every one is man-made.


Pitcairn Island
 
The smallest island with country status is Pitcairn in Polynesia, at just 1.75 sq.. miles/4,53 sq Km.


Rome
 
The first city to reach a population of 1 million people was Rome, Italy (in 133 B.C.)

There is a city called Rome on every continent.


Siberia
 
Siberia contains more than 25% of the world's forests.


S.M.O.M

 The actual smallest sovereign entity in the world Is the Sovereign Military Order of Malta S.M.O.M).  It is located in the city of Rome, Italy, and has an area of two tennis courts. And, as of 2001, has a population of 80, 20 less people than the Vatican.  It is a sovereign entity under international law,
just as the Vatican is.

Sahara Desert

In the Sahara Desert , there is a town named Tidikelt,Algeria, that did not receive a drop of rain for ten years. Technically, though, the driest place on Earth is in the valleys of the Antarctic near Ross Island.
There has been no rainfall there for two million years


Spain

Spain literally means 'the land of rabbits'.


St. Paul , Minnesota

St. Paul , Minnesota , was originally called Pig's Eye after a man named Pierre 'Pig's Eye' Parrant who set up the first business there.


Roads

Chances that a road is unpaved:
... in the U.S.A = 1%;
... in Canada = 75%


Russia

The deepest hole ever drilled by man is the Kola Superdeep Borehole, in Russia. It reached a depth of 12,261 meters (about 40,226 feet or 7.62 miles.) It was drilled for scientific research and gave up some unexpected discoveries, one of which was a huge deposit of hydrogen - so massive that the mud coming from the hole was boiling with it.


United States

The Eisenhower interstate system requires that one mile in every five must be straight. These straight sections are usable as airstrips in times of war or other emergencies.


Waterfalls

The water of Angel Falls (the world's highest) inVenezuela drops 3,212 feet (979 meters.) They are 15 times higher than Niagara Falls .

What of Blue Apron?

Blue Apron Shipping Bag
I knew about Blue Apron, and had no interest. Then the kids gave  us a paid subscription for Christmas. I don't know how many meals it covers, but ever since MoSup plugged us in a month ago, every Friday UPS delivers two meals in a nifty freezer bag (on ice block).  So, yeah, you must keep it refrigerated, so make sure you have space (or order just one at a time). 

Now, I must say that, so far, not a single meal looked like anything I'd order at a restaurant. But. All have been absolutely delicious. No exaggeration.  Part of the secret lay with the various spice pouches, many of which I've never heard of.  Plus,where I have a propensity to spice the hell out of things, Apron seems stingy. The results have schooled my otherwise.

Each meal takes about 45/60 minutes to prepare. I know. But, and I cannot stress this too much, the end results are fabulous.  Every one of them. The portions are so generous that we could easily serve three people.
We are believers. I know nothing of cost.
