Have a good day y’all.

(I don’t remember who brought this to a daily in the comments, but thanks.)

And, of course, the obligatory George Carlin:

From The Big Chill:

And now for the obligatory message from our sponsors:

Here at the Q tree we believe in the concept of CIVIL open free speech and the discussion that fleshes out ideas. When commenting and participating in the OPEN discussion on this thread all comments MUST NOT CONTAIN personal threats, baiting, name calling, or other anti-social words fomenting hate, violence or destruction. Our host Wolfm00n has strict rules about that.

Fellow tree dweller, the late Wheatie, gave us some good reminders on the basics of civility in political discourse:

  1. No food fights.
  2. No running with scissors.
  3. If you bring snacks, bring enough for everyone

Please, stock up on blanks for celebratory gunfire, be ready to swing from the chandeliers…and no messing with the nuclear weapons.

Please remember to remain locked and loaded and ready for trouble should the insurrectionists try to invade your space.

Those who have things to say that do not fit the generally accepted limits of “civil” discussion, Wolf has provided a venue known as the UTree. You’re welcome to visit over there and say hi to anyone hanging out over there. The “Rescue Thread” is also over there. In the event a rendezvous of the tree is needed, please check it out, as well as the newest rescue venue.

Auntie DePat’s requests:

If you see something has not been posted, do us all a favor, and post it. Please, do not complain that it has not been done yet.

The scroll wheel on your mouse can be your friend. As mature adults, please use it here in the same manner you would in avoiding online porn.

Thank you so much for any and all attention to such details. It is GREATLY appreciated by more than one party here.

One other vital note:

Please, review these rules that our host Wolfm00n outlined toward the beginning of the growth of the tree itself. it won’t take long.

JOHN 10:11-16

11I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12He who is a hireling and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. 13He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep. 14I am the good shepherd; I know my own and my own know me, 15as the Father knows me and I know the Father; and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16And I have other sheep, that are not of this fold; I must bring them also, and they will heed my voice. So there shall be one flock, one shepherd.

As always, prayers for the fight against that which seeks to enslave us are welcome.

Please include: President Donald Trump, the Q team, our soldiers in the field, special forces, tactical units, first responders and those working behind the scenes…and any and all people with family members in the hospital, COVID or not.

And…members of the QTree who no longer participate for one reason or another.

It is quite clear, as per Wolf’s message from July, that we are under spiritual attack. Building up a robust arsenal of prayer and discipline is a must in fighting the enemy and his minions.

In that spirit, the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel from Tuesday’s threads, and the Breastplate of St. Patrick, not to mention the Litany of Humility are favorites recommended by exorcists in spiritual warfare.

Death by lethal injection.

Poetic justice.

(Only, make it excruciatingly painful and slow.)

cthulhu

While he certainly deserves the most painful of lingering deaths, isolated from those who might console and comfort him, it is most important that he provide a tangible reminder for other would-be totalitarians. Something that could be prominently displayed on the National Mall, for instance.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The head can be severed afterwards.

Maybe we can stick the needle in his eyeball just before the lucite pour to make the reminder more graphic.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

The problem there is, not painful enough if slow, and if quick…very abrupt.

My point being if he killed so many via injections, that’s the way to deliver the death sentence (after conviction and sentencing under due process)…for him.

scott467

The unvaccinated are frequently asked, “How did you know the COVID vaccines were dangerous when they first came out?

The answer is simple: we didn’t.

However, we quickly figured out that the people pushing the shots were LIARS.”

______________

It didn’t take much (if any) ‘figuring out’ that they were liars, of course they’re liars. That’s a given.

Once you’re past that, you have to figure out for yourself if their lies are:

1) corrupt and profit motivated, but not dangerous

2) dangerous and stupid

3) corrupt, profit motivated, dangerous and stupid

It’s almost never option #1.

The real issue is that vaccines have a long history of being dangerous, and the government has a long history of being corrupt and dangerous, and when dangerous government rushes something that is already dangerous, that’s not good.

The even more obvious problem is that the so-called ‘vaccine’ was EXPERIMENTAL and UNTESTED.

Covid began in December 2019, and the vaccine rolled out in 2020 or 2021.

It takes YEARS, up to a decade or more, to conduct proper animal trials, and if it makes it past animal trials, to human trials, before a vaccine could even be declared ‘safe’.

That obviously didn’t happen, unless 2021 – 2019 = 10.

When inherently dangerous gov’t and inherently corrupt Big Pharma skip all the tests and trials, and try to FORCE the entire planet to take an untested and experimental drug, that’s a red flag bigger than the galaxy.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

unless 2021 – 2019 = 10

Well it is in binary, says someone with one brain cell.

Of course that might make sense were it not for the fact that 2021 is clearly not in binary, nor is 2019.

scott467

I don’t have any brain cells, so I don’t have any idea what that means.

But I know that 2021 minus 2019 does not equal 10, and the amount of time between 2019 and 2021 is not enough to conduct proper animal and human trials 😁

True.

Alison

How did we know they were dangerous?

Some things we DID know when they first came out …..

  1. The injections were a brand new type of ‘vax’ that included a never-before-used-MRNA component.
  2. The MRNA-based injections had NOT gone through the normal trial periods to test for efficacy nor to rule out toxicity or determine side effects.

And there were well-regarded scientists reporting that one of the risks of the MRNA injections could be VAIDS … that is, a longterm deterioration of the immune system itself

Those three things – 2 known knowns and 1 unknown-now-known – were enough to convince me I wasn’t going to be part of that experiment.

Gail Combs

On top of that we had KNOWN SAFE CHEAP therapeutics we could use. Also I had already had Covid so why should I get a shot when I had natural immunity?

kalbokalbs

And the Feds and medical assholes did not support natural immunity.

Clearly a W T F position.

Gail Combs

“….Covid began in December 2019….”

Actually I got Ralph Baric’s Disease in the fall of 2018 as did my friend. How much earlier it was around we do not know.

BUT we do have this:
“A SARS-like cluster of circulating bat coronaviruses shows potential for human emergence

It was Electronically Published on November 8, 2015

And LOOK who funded it! The National Institutes of Health under Fauci AND the State Key Program for Basic Research Grants from the Chinese Ministry of Science. Fauci not only funded the initial research but indicated interest in funding further research.

Abstract

The emergence of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus (SARS-CoV) and Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS)-CoV underscores the threat of cross-species transmission events leading to outbreaks in humans. Here we examine the disease potential of a SARS-like virus, SHC014-CoV, which is currently circulating in Chinese horseshoe bat populations. Using the SARS-CoV reverse genetics system, we generated and characterized a chimeric virus expressing the spike of bat coronavirus SHC014 in a mouse-adapted SARS-CoV backbone. The results indicate that group 2b viruses encoding the SHC014 spike in a wild-type backbone can efficiently use multiple orthologs of the SARS receptor human angiotensin converting enzyme II (ACE2), replicate efficiently in primary human airway cells and achieve in vitro titers equivalent to epidemic strains of SARS-CoV.

Additionally, in vivo experiments demonstrate replication of the chimeric virus in mouse lung with notable pathogenesis. Evaluation of available SARS-based immune-therapeutic and prophylactic modalities revealed poor efficacy; both monoclonal antibody and vaccine approaches failed to neutralize and protect from infection with CoVs using the novel spike protein. On the basis of these findings, we synthetically re-derived an infectious full-length SHC014 recombinant virus and demonstrate robust viral replication both in vitro and in vivo. Our work suggests a potential risk of SARS-CoV re-emergence from viruses currently circulating in bat populations.

It sounds like they ALREADY HAD the virus engineered BEFORE 2015. So Dr Boyle is correct the UNC level THREE Lab did produce a gain of function SARS like virus.

Aside from ole’ Ralphy, Two of the authors listed are from China, Ge XY , and another is  Shi ZL aka The Bat Lady.

The author information returns:

Key Laboratory of Special Pathogens and Biosafety, Wuhan Institute of Virology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Wuhan, China.

Supposedly there’s no retaliation against whistleblowers, and so on and so forth for related things, but if your boss who fired you is forced to hire you back he WILL resent it. He will make your life unpleasant and likely will be smart enough to be able to make it look like normal stuff rather than retribution.

Based on the two articles I read, Allen receives back pay and his security clearance is reinstated. He resigned from the FBI on Monday, but his security clearance, presumably, can carry over to a new position somewhere.

para59r

Yes, no security clearance meant no job prospects in his trained field of expertise. Now he is free to move on with back pay! A story of sweet vindication.😁

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

Unfortunately quitting rather than going back to a vengeful environment was probably his best option.

And yes, the clearance should remain on the books for two years, long enough to find another job that will renew it. if for some reason it takes him longer than that he will need a fresh background investigation before he can handle anything classified. (This is a major barrier to getting a job in some circumstnaces, they much rather would have an existing clearance they can just transfer and that only takes a couple of days.)

Miranda Devine:

COURTROOM REPORT: It’s official. Hunter Biden’s #LaptopFromHell is government exhibit 16 at the First Son’s gun trial in Delaware. The silver MacBook Pro covered in a plastic wrapper was first publicly sighted today at 2.10pm when it was carried across the court by prosecutor Derek Hines to his first witness FBI Special Agent Erika Jensen who confirmed it was Hunter’s laptop from the serial number on the back that corresponds to his iCloud identity. She said the laptop was obtained by the FBI with a subpoena from The Mac Shop in Wilmington where it had been “abandoned” by Hunter. She said that investigators corroborated content on the laptop with content in Hunter’s iCloud that they obtained from Apple with a subpoena. Hines then proceeded to go through WhatsApp and text messages and images and documents from the laptop and iCloud with Jensen to make his case that Hunter was using drugs before during and after the period that he bought and possessed the handgun after allegedly signing a background check form on October 12 2018 saying he was not a drug user. His then-lover Hallie Biden later threw the gun in a trash can. The jury kept unsmiling focus throughout the evidence which showed Hunter spending $50,000 a month in ATM withdrawals during that period and organizing alleged purchases of crack cocaine. Hunter’s disembodied voice filled the courtroom periodically as prosecutors played audiobook extracts from his memoir and he remained impassive behind a pair of salmon pink reading glasses. Hallie Biden will be a witness by the end of this week or next week after Hunter’s ex wife Kathleen Buhle and ex lover Zoe Kestan. 

It is three years and eight months since @nypost broke the story of #LaptopFromHell that was censored by Big Tech. A few days later in October 2020 the #Dirty51 ex-intelligence officials, mostly CIA, lied it was Russian disinformation and then-presidential candidate Joe Biden lied that it was a “Russian plant.”

This trial dwarfs Trump’s in terms of scandalous behavior (alleged, in Trump’s case). It’s very negative publicity on the way to the election, involving multiple Biden family members and a real crime.

Sucking up, sincere or not, part of the drill at times.

Scarfs are, well, forget it.

Guess it may be, which head is dominate at the time.

cthulhu

It’s not exactly sucking up.

I was talking to a woman one time, and she noted that I was really quite peculiar because I really like women. Not in any way like I’d want to be one, but beyond what regular guys generally do.

I like their voices, and the way they move, and the little gestures they make. Mind you, I could probably watch one read the telephone book and be content. But they do things that guys don’t do and I’m fascinated.

Guys will throw on some clothes and it’s just what they’re wearing. Gals’ clothes often have a special meaning. When a woman offers to show you her clothes, she is offering a deeper glimpse into what makes her tick, what she values, her history, and her self-image.

If I were to go through De Pat’s scarves with her, I would be interested in where she got each one, why she liked it, when she’d wear it, how she would feel when wearing it, and what memories it carried. Assuming that she wasn’t merely playing games, it would help me know and understand her better — and, yes, I might be able to give her a scarf that would always remind her of me.

It’s not that I have any lack in testosterone — my favorite way of interacting with women involves no clothing at all — but I would treasure time spent together “merely” going through scarves.

And if it proceeded to lingerie, that’s good, too…..

Thieves in crime-ridden Southern California are now stealing fire hydrants, leaving neighborhoods at risk of burning to the ground during an emergency.

They are selling them for scrap metal.

Society is going back to 3rd world levels in some areas of the USA

pgroup2

How do they shut off the water?

scott467

I’m sure they don’t, they just take it and let the water run.

cthulhu

The technical difference between a faucet and a hydrant is the location of the valve. With a faucet, there is little distance between the handle and the valve; with a hydrant, there is a significant distance. The valves for fire hydrants are deep underground and are linked to the top by a long rod — if you disconnect the rod, you can steal the top of the hydrant without opening the valve.

rayzorback

Not all are deep underground. Not all have this “rod”. But they do all have a shutoff valve.

rayzorback

All fire hydrants have shutoff valves nearby.

scott467

A) fire hydrants are not easy to break down or melt, so we can be sure they’re being sold in ‘as is’ condition

B) fire hydrants aren’t difficult to recognize, so whoever is buying them knows what they are

C) prosecute every scrap metal company that is in receipt of stolen fire hydrants

Put the owners in prison and put the company out of business.

You only need to do that once or twice, and every other scrap yard gets the message.

Suddenly there is no one buying fire hydrants anymore.

Which means suddenly there is no reason to do the work necessary to steal fire hydrants anymore.

Ta-da…

scott467

I sure hope they thought this through.

If mail-in votes are allowed, no matter how many real votes are cast, all they have to do is stop the vote count (like last time), until they figure out how may votes DJT received, and then pull the boxes of bogus ‘mail in’ votes from under the table, and add enough of those to overcome whatever number DJT has.

There is no way to ‘swamp’ that with real votes.

And the electronic voting machines are even easier to cheat with.

If those two things haven’t been fixed, then how is the result going to be any different from last time?

pgroup2

They are limited by the total number of registered voters.

scott467

You would think so, but there were lots of places last time that had over 100% voter turnout, when something around 60% is the norm, and what did anyone do about it?

Nothing.

All that matters is who declares victory AND has the power to back it up.

DJT can declare victory, but he’s not in power.

If Brandon declares victory — and he certainly will, reading it straight off the teleprompter from his death bed if necessary — what mechanism is there to say he’s wrong and forcibly remove him, if he won’t vacate?

The whole premise of our system is supposed to be a ‘peaceful transfer of power’.

What happens when the Left decides they’re not going?

They already made that decision on January 20, 2021. That was the point of no return.

They can’t go, because if they transfer power, they’re going to the death chamber for high treason and a hundred other crimes, and they know it.

So no matter what the vote is, no matter how many votes DJT gets, no matter whether the total vote count is 300% or 500% or 1,000% higher than the number of registered voters, none of that matters, because there is nobody to do anything about the obvious fraud.

The only thing that matters is who can declare victory and back it up.

When Brandon declares victory, he will have all mainstream media on his side, and we already know the courts are on his side from all the ‘no standing’ dismissals of election fraud cases, and we already know the worthless knee-pad military won’t do a *&^#ing thing besides act as the Praetorian Guard.

We know the corrupt D.C. police department won’t do anything, and we know the GOP won’t fight for Trump, and so who does that leave?

Is Sidney Powell going to come back and re-release the Kraken?

If Brandon declares victory and the MSM pronounces him the winner, the lunatic Left will declare it as ‘their truth’ and then what?

What new mechanism overturns the stolen election in 2024, that didn’t overturn the stolen election in 2020?

There is a reason no one can answer that question.

It’s because there isn’t an answer, besides deus ex machina.

Your opening paragraph stated that when votes exceeded voters last time, nobody did anything about it.

No reason to think that would repeat. Lots of programs being put together to deal with election integrity [or lack thereof] including pre-written lawsuits ready to file.

Your faith in the system and the rule of law is admirable.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t exist anymore.

The only reason rule of law ever exists, anywhere, is because men with guns are appointed to uphold rule of law, to enforce it.

Because without force, nothing happens.

The men with guns who are appointed to uphold rule of law in America have abdicated — totally.

If their oaths ever meant anything to them — which is in grave doubt — their oaths certainly mean nothing to them now. They are a disgrace to their badge, to their uniform, to the agencies they represent, and to the ideals those agencies were founded upon.

They are paid by criminals to ignore crimes their bosses don’t want stopped, and they are paid to ‘SWAT’ and harass and detain and prosecute people who have committed no crime, and they do all of it, for a paycheck.

Even to the former President of the United States, an innocent man who supported law enforcement and our military (and our country) like no other in my lifetime.

How do they repay him for his support and leadership? They stand by and do the bidding of the criminals who persecute him.

That’s who they are, that’s what they are, that’s what they do. They’re bullies with guns who sold themselves to the lowest bidder.

I know some people don’t like to hear that, but they need to hear it, because it’s the *&^%ing truth, and truth matters.

They do whatever they’re told by a criminal, rogue, renegade, unelected government who stole power and wrecked our nation. It was stolen by enemies both foreign and domestic, and the people who swore an oath to uphold the law took a powder and let it happen.

They can come up with a hundred different excuses, and every last one of them is exactly that, an excuse.

That means they are not ‘law enforcement’, they are ‘enforcers’ for organized crime.

That’s just reality.

pgroup2

That’s some grade ‘A’ hopium.

scott467

“No reason to think that would repeat. Lots of programs being put together to deal with election integrity [or lack thereof] including pre-written lawsuits ready to file.”

_________

Which of these ‘programs’ enforces itself?

None. Enforcement is the missing link.

What good are pre-written lawsuits, if no judge will give them standing?

They’re no good at all, it’s just money wasted on lawyers who pop out pre-written lawsuits on LegalSoft (or whatever their form-letter legal software program is called) and charge you $1,000/hr for the privilege.

I realize that people who have spent their entire lives “in the system” may have it ingrained so deeply that they find it almost impossible to understand that the system they knew is gone now.

Without enforcement, it’s just gone.

Robert Baker

They can’t go, because if they transfer power, they’re going to the death chamber for high treason and a hundred other crimes, and they know it.

Do any 21st century examples come to mind?

scott467

No, but I also don’t keep up very closely with international news.

Whether it has happened anywhere else or not in the 21st century is moot, though.

If it doesn’t happen here, and soon, then this country is gone, and we better stop pretending it isn’t, and get out while we still can.

I really don’t think most people have grasped the gravity of the situation, since January 20, 2021.

The Republic ended on that day.

Rule of law ended on that day.

There is a very short window of time to reestablish rule of law, and November will be the last chance.

But unless there is some magic solution that Q or DJT has come up with, and is keeping totally secret, it’s as if we’re all sleepwalking toward a cliff.

The people who stole the election, destroyed our country and committed crimes far worse than either one, are not going to go gently into the good night.

Programs and rules and laws are worthless without enforcement, and the enforcement agencies work for the criminals.

If there are any individuals within those agencies who disagree with what the criminals are doing, they’re certainly not going to stand up against them.

If DJT has some magic plan, and it actually works, and he is sworn in, what other possibility is there, than the criminals being held accountable for their high treason and all the other crimes they have committed?

Do they just get a pass, a slap on the wrist, for stealing the Republic, trashing it, enriching themselves at the expense of 330+ million Americans, all the child trafficking, fraud, embezzlement, money laundering, bribery and on and on and on?

And if they do, what stops them from continuing (not even slowing down or stopping, but continuing unabated) their criminal activity?

Not to mention the attempted genocide of the population of the whole world, according to a well established and widely published belief system?

What example does that set for the rest of America, and the rest of the world, if they are not held accountable to the Law, for any of it?

And if they are held accountable for any of it, even the least of it is death penalty eligible.

How is there any way around that, and why should the victims of their crimes be searching for ways to get them off? What kind of Stockholm syndrome / abuse syndrome would that be?

Without justice being served, the criminality will not even slow down, much less stop.

Besides all that, who has the authority to dismiss such heinous, aggravated and premeditated crimes?

Robert Baker

I do not disagree with the rationale of your premise. However, I also do not see any evidence that such an outcome is likely. Therefore, I do not reckon that they are motivated by a fear of such a possibility. To me, the straightforward reason is that it is simply their character to cheat, so they do.

Gail Combs

“You would think so, but there were lots of places last time that had over 100% voter turnout, when something around 60% is the norm, and what did anyone do about it?

Nothing…..”

That would be North Carolina for example. 20 out of 100 counties had more than 100% of the breathing adult population voting.

From AI:

North Carolina’s voter rolls have been the subject of several lawsuits and settlements in recent years. Here are some key cases:

  • Judicial Watch v. North Carolina: In 2020, the conservative group Judicial Watch sued North Carolina election officials, alleging that the state and two counties (Guilford and Mecklenburg) failed to remove ineligible voters from the registration rolls as required by federal law. The lawsuit claimed that the state had not made reasonable efforts to remove voters who had died, moved away, or become ineligible due to a felony conviction. In 2021, the state removed over 430,000 inactive names from the voter rolls, and Judicial Watch settled the lawsuit.
  • Conservative group sues Mecklenburg over disputed ineligible voters: In 2020, a conservative group sued Mecklenburg County, alleging that tens of thousands of ineligible voters remained on the rolls. The lawsuit claimed that the county had not made sufficient efforts to remove voters who had died, moved away, or become ineligible due to a felony conviction.
  • LWVNC Asks to Intervene in North Carolina Voter Purge Case: In 2021, the League of Women Voters of North Carolina (LWVNC) asked to intervene in a lawsuit designed to purge eligible voters from the voter rolls in 40 North Carolina counties. The lawsuit, Green v. Bell, was filed by attorneys representing two North Carolina Republicans. The LWVNC argued that the lawsuit would deprive eligible voters of their right to vote and asked to be allowed to participate in the case to protect the rights of North Carolina voters.
  • North Carolina voter ID lawsuit still heading for trial: In 2021, a federal trial over North Carolina’s photo voter identification law remained set for May, despite a judge’s refusal to end the lawsuit. The lawsuit was filed by civil rights groups, which alleged that the law’s provisions were marred by racial bias.

These lawsuits and settlements highlight the ongoing controversy surrounding voter rolls in North Carolina

scott467

Those lawsuits are ongoing, nearly 4 years later, nearly 4 years after Brandon has already been in office, so no matter the outcome, the criminals won.

And unless there is some magic solution that is more secret than the Manhattan Project, what on earth is supposed to prevent the exact same thing from happening in November?

“From the Big Chill:”

____________

The Big Chill (1983) has a great soundtrack, I remember watching the movie when I was a kid. Many of the songs were unknown to me, and yet fit in perfectly with all the classic rock music I already knew.

Classic rock (to me) being broadly defined as just about anything (besides punk or disco) before around 1982, when MTV began.

1) Marvin Gaye – I Heard It Through The Grapevine 5:03

2) The Temptations – My Girl 2:55

3) The Rascals – Good Lovin’ 2:28

4) Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – The Tracks Of My Tears 2:53

5) Three Dog Night – Joy To The World 3:24

6) The Temptations – Ain’t Too Proud To Beg 2:31

7) Aretha Franklin – (You Make Me Feel Like A) Natural Woman 2:41

8) Smokey Robinson & The Miracles – I Second That Emotion 2:46

9) Procol HarumA Whiter Shade Of Pale 4:03

10) The Exciters – Tell Him 2:29

11) Four Tops – It’s The Same Old Song 2:45

12) Martha Reeves & The Vandellas – Dancing In The Street 2:38

13) Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On 3:52

14) The Marvelettes – Too Many Fish In The Sea 2:26

.

The song that was the most fun to sing along to was Joy to the World 😁

I’m pretty sure I knew Creedence Clearwater Revival’s version of Heard it Through the Grapevine, and I love it, but Marvin did it great too.

The song that was both new to me and stood out from all the others, was A Whiter Shade of Pale 😎

I don’t know what it is about that song, I’m not even sure what the song is about, and it doesn’t even seem to matter. It grabbed me with the opening organ note, the first time I heard it, and never let go.

And all these years later, it still gets me, every single time 😁

Link you into some Robin Trower of Procol Harum. Post Harum days Trower.

Valerie Curren

One of my husband’s previous Christian Rock Bands, The Lively Pelts, covered this song a number of times in their gigs–fun!

Robert Baker

A Whiter Shade of Pale was one of the iconic songs of the Viet Nam War in America. Although it had nothing to do with Viet Nam, its somber tone reflected the zeitgeist of a nation at war. Couple that with the anti-war movement in full swing and the song reflects the mood of people.

scott467

“its somber tone reflected the zeitgeist of a nation at war.”

___________

The somber tone reflected the zeitgeist of my childhood too.

Robert Baker

Just a curiosity: What decades covered your childhood?

scott467

70s and 80s.

Robert Baker

50s and 60s for me.

scott467

As it relates to music, I was right on the edge of the great and terrible divide called MTV, when everything about music radically changed.

Most people my age (and younger) made 80s MTV era music their own, and that’s their music. When I went to college, I noticed immediately that most people my age were raised on MTV music.

But for whatever reason, nearly everyone I went to high school with (about 150 kids in my class) rejected the weirdness of MTV, and stayed with the music of our older brothers and sisters (and parents), which would later be called ‘classic rock’, to include folk, blues, psychedelic, rock, soul, pop, Motown, just about everything besides disco and punk, between around 1963 (the Beatles’ first album) and 1982, plus Elvis.

Because even though not many of us listened to much Elvis, everybody still knew he was and would always be the King 😁

Where I lived, MTV began on cable TV in 1982.

The Big Chill came out in 1983.

After a year of MTV weirdness and questionable musical talent, The Big Chill soundtrack confirmed that classic rock was the right choice all along.

And A Whiter Shade of Pale was the standout from that soundtrack 😎

Valerie Curren

It’s weird for I graduated HS in ’82 but I recall MTV from some babysitting gigs, my parents didn’t have cable…then. I’m also Classic Rock all the way. I went away to Christian college in late ’82 & stopped listening to top 40 secular stuff in the early-mid ’80s & got turned on to Christian Rock, which I’d never even heard of before college, just knowing Amy Grant & Evie Tournquist basically before then. Petra, Sweet Comfort Band, Mastodon (John & Dino Elefante), Margaret Becker, Randy Stonehill, Russ Taff, & others in concerts & on the local Christian Rock Station became my go-to listening. One of my roommates from Southern California exposed me to her best friend’s band, Crumbacher, who we saw in concert on one of our breaks there, & to things like Rez Band & the Altar Boys…fun times.

I still listen to ClassicChristian247.com to hear at least Some of these gems still, not to mention our extensive CD collection w/ stuff like PFR, DC Talk, Kerry Livgren, Kutless, Third Day, The 77’s, & many more 

Whenever I choose to listen to secular it’s Classic Rock!

Valerie Curren

That CD was loaded up in our mini-van when my son Josiah had his Liver Transplant. I was able to get a hotel room provided by social work & covered by insurance so that I could theoretically get some sleep, instead of always staying bedside in his room, if it was even allowed. Originally my mom was supposed to come & spell me during the day so I could get some sleep but that never happened, unfortunately. Whenever he’s been in-patient I want to be in the room when the staff does rounds, anywhere from 4-7am, to get the most updated info & sometimes the only face-to-face time with the actual attending physician instead of just the resident(s). Usually if I’ve fallen asleep I’m too bleary eyed & loopy to participate in the discussions so I made a point of staying awake until rounds, if at all possible, so planned to always be in his room at least until then.

It is Very Hard to get decent sleep in a hospital setting, especially when there is a higher incidence of staff intervention, like when he was in ICU post-op for a number of days. As such having an off site room can facilitate at least Some Sleep. My first foray to the hotel was 2 days after transplant, after 3 days/nights at the hospital w/ no shower or change of clothes & “sleeping” in reclining chairs. I went to the hotel, got a 2-3 hour “nap”, using the alarm & a wake-up call so I could get back after getting cleaned up. Even only being gone for a few hours there was still a “crisis” that happened when they couldn’t catheterize my son due to structural issues that meant they needed a urology consult (fortunately the staff person had previously worked with my son & recalled “tricks” needed to properly insert the catheter) so my son was in inconsolable distress for some time (I’d never wanted him alone in that hospitalization because of his many needs..sigh).

One of the other times when I went to the hotel, after rounds, & slept as long as I could, when I returned it was to discover that no one had assisted him with ordering & eating his meal(s) [I’d specifically discussed with staff the need for support here & it was supposedly in his chart] & he didn’t know/think to press the nurse call button for help (he was 17 then), so he was in a hypoglycemic blood sugar slump that typically takes many hours, sometimes even a whole day, to shake off…

Anyway that Big Chill music when driving to/from the hospital the handful of times I was able to Attempt some sleep in the hotel provided a stabilizing touch point w/ simpler times & I was incredibly grateful for even that small comfort in a season of major upheaval…

scott467

“Anyway that Big Chill music when driving to/from the hospital the handful of times I was able to Attempt some sleep in the hotel provided a stabilizing touch point w/ simpler times & I was incredibly grateful for even that small comfort in a season of major upheaval…”

______________

Music can be a great comfort.

I agree about being in the hospital room as much as possible. When my Dad was sick, one of us (my sisters, my Mom or myself) was always in the hospital room, same with Hospice.

Even if the people who work there are good and doing their best, they don’t know enough about your family member or their condition to provide competent care.

Someone has to be there, someone who knows the patient, taking the role of an advocate, especially if their condition makes it difficult or impossible to speak for themselves 👍

Valerie Curren

That’s so true. I’m so sorry that your family had to learn that during your father’s illness. My daughter spent one of the rejection hospitalization days with Josiah, & I was so grateful for her help but felt guilty for taking a pseudo rest day even so… 😓 God is good & helps us through All of it…

Blessings!

I wonder If you might let the Q-Tree know that Mom’s surgery went well & they were gone just 9 hours door-to-door, thankfully. They are both exhausted.

My husband & I took a spontaneous trip Up North to the Cottage since he missed Memorial Day & we wanted to celebrate our anniversary, but there’s no comment box on Steve’s post for some reason on my travel tablet.

From the opener

I’ve wondered that about RVs for a long time.

(In regards to why no CDL needed.)

We had a temp fill in as front desk guy for a few months on a previous job. His temp agency required him to stand when anyone entered the building (we put an end to that); he was a retired cop and made the same comment. He believed RVs should require a CDL.

Of course that would disqualify the vast majority of drivers of such things and kill the market for them.

Which might explain a few things.

(In truth I had no idea a CDL was required for a pickup towing a trailer. In fact, I’m pretty sure it’s not…here.)

cthulhu

I think it’s because the pickup is towing a trailer loaded with a commercial piece of equipment. I would wonder if a Bobcat would also qualify.

SteveInCO · Thermonuclear MAGA

So you don’t need it to drive the pickup, just to drive the thing off the trailer.

Not a good compare/contrast.

Depends on the state. If you are towing over 10,000 lbs, some states require special licensing. LINK

When Valerie wanders by, she can give us the skinny from her hub’s qualification classes.

Valerie Curren

LOL Michael has a CDL-A in Michigan, which is required to drive the big semi-trucks. In his current job he mostly drives “B” trucks, which are one (huge, like 40-53 feet, I think–those lengths are more for the trailers on the As, so more like 36 foot) vehicle versus a tractor & a trailer. In his CDL training one of the instructors said that if you can get A-truck pay but drive a B-truck that’s ideal. That’s what mostly happens in his current job. I prefer him to drive an A-Truck at least every few weeks or so to keep the skills sharp but that doesn’t always happen. Most of the A-Truck action at his company happens in the middle of the night. He & a few of the other drivers that do the typical delivery routes have their CDL-A’s so are the most versatile & can fill in on almost any of the vehicles as needed.

The other day after he got done with his typical delivery route his boss needed him to make a delivery, using one of the company pick-up trucks, to a location that was about half-way between “the mothership” & home. In this instance the boss suggested that he just drive the pick-up home (this was a first, in this job) to save time & gas. In his oil & gas field job in Northern Michigan in our early marriage he often got to drive a work truck home, which was very nice in the winter, as he’d have the snowplow on & could make quick work of our driveway, which was practically impossible for me to get to w/ 3 in diapers & one who couldn’t really be out in the cold for any length of time due to hospitalizations for RSV…

He had a Chauffer’s License, iirc, to drive the trucks Up North, which were all Ford pick-ups, F-150, F-250, & F-350, & he also often hauled a 40 foot trailer loaded with pit liners, valve boxes, &/or down-hole piping. 4WD involved changing a setting on the exterior of the wheels, which was a Huge pain in the butt when sunk into the mud or snow up to the running boards. He sometimes takes me along the state highways & backroads/2-tracks up there to show me some of the jobsites where he used to make deliveries 🙂 We both Love Michigan’s North Woods & he was blessed to work in & around them for nearly 5 years, including witnessing near daily sunrises & sunsets! Glorious, though also some pretty back-breaking physical work, like when digging out 4X4X4 holes for valve boxes w/ pickaxes & shovels in the frozen “tundra” of seeming ceaseless Winter there…

Apparently, after reading this to Michael he said that the A certification can be necessary to drive certain B-Trucks that have a combo of either weight &/or air brakes that require a more specialized training to operate. His company ran into this problem w/ some rental B-Trucks that certain B licensed guys were actually Not allowed to drive. Michael said he’s rated for up to 80,000 pounds & also got the hazardous materials certification so he can be more versatile, like a former job that involved fuel hauling. He doesn’t have “doubles” certification where one can haul 2 trailers. He’s driven both open/flat bed & enclosed trailers, depending on the situation & needs of the company.

States That Require A Non-Commercial Special Driver’s License

  • California: Class B license required over 26,000 lb or over 40 feet; Class A license required for towing over 10,000 lbs

From Brave AI

A Class B CDL (Commercial Driver’s License) in California allows you to operate a single vehicle with a weight of 26,001 pounds or more, or a combination of vehicles with a total weight of 26,001 pounds or more. This license is required if you want to drive a passenger bus, school bus, or a large truck

A Class A license is a type of commercial driver’s license (CDL) that allows drivers to operate vehicles that weigh 26,001 pounds or more. In California, a Class A license is considered the topmost tier for commercial drivers and requires additional training compared to Class B and C licensing.

TheseTruths

https://www.neighbor.com/storage-blog/do-i-need-a-special-license-to-drive-an-rv/

• No, you don’t need a Commercial Driver’s License (CDL) to drive an RV under 26,000 lbs. or a travel trailer under 10,000 lbs. Of course, state laws can change, so it’s always best to double-check before hitting the open road. But generally, all you need is a valid driver’s license.

• If your RV or trailer exceeds that weight limit, then you might need either a special license or an endorsement depending on the state.

A commercial driver’s license (CDL) is necessary for vehicles over 26,000 pounds, while a non-commercial license is sufficient for smaller RVs. In some cases, a special permit or endorsement may be required for towing multiple vehicles or driving a fifth wheel.

Acquiring a commercial driver’s license ensures that you can drive anything and adhere to safety regulations. 

Because the vast majority of RVs and travel trailers weigh in at under 26,000 lbs and 10,000 lbs, obtaining a CDL for your RV isn’t necessary. Unless you’re driving a luxury bus or hauling big boy toys in your RV, you’re not going to exceed the weight limits.

But depending on your state, you may need a non-commercial CDL for class A RV that weighs more than 26,000 pounds, a trailer that weighs more than 10,000 pounds, or a trailer that exceeds a certain length. For more details on the differences between a non-commercial CDL and a standard CDL, check out this resource

“Of course that would disqualify the vast majority of drivers of such things and kill the market for them.
Which might explain a few things.”

______________

That’s what I was going to say, except say it this way.

I’m guessing 90% of RV owners are boomers, and boomers have all the money, so if they make it so boomers can’t buy their RVs and drive all over America without a CDL, there won’t be any RV business anymore.

“CDLs are not that hard to get.”

_____________

Whether they’re hard to get or not is irrelevant, it’s one more hassle in a world of hassle and red tape and BS.

For commercial purposes, employers can require it, and people will do it because they need the fiat debt slavery currency.

For Ma and Pa Kettle, who just want to drive around to national parks in their retirement, many of them are not going to take classes and take a test to get a CDL.

Licenses and other hoops to jump through are very effective ways for government to discourage activity.

Gail Combs

AND the CDL is NOT that easy to get either.

I took the course from a very good school and it was no walk in the park. Neither was the test.

Gail Combs

“….I had no idea a CDL was required for a pickup towing a trailer….”

Not required in North Carolina. I have a CDL but Hubby does not. We BOTH drive our rigs.

RV Driver‘s License Requirements In Every Statecampanda.com

They have a listing of states and the type of license required for what weight range.

…Most states do not require a special license for RVs weighing under 26,000 pounds or towed vehicles under 10,000 pounds. Vehicles that can carry more than 16 passengers are often subject to special licensing…

PRAYING ON THE ARMOR OF GOD

Father God, I now follow your command to put on the full armor of God, because my battle is not against flesh and blood but against rulers, authorities, the powers of this dark world and against spiritual forces of evil in the unseen world.

I first pray on the Belt of Truth that it may be buckled around my waist, may I be centered and encircled by your truth dear Lord. Hem me inside all that is true and right, and may I be protected and held up by the truth of your living word, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Breastplate of righteousness, please protect my vital organs and my inner man, cover my integrity, my spirit, and my soul. Guard my heart for it is the wellspring of life, please strengthen and guard the most vulnerable places in my life with that which is right, good, and noble that I might not receive a fatal blow from the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Gospel Shoes of Peace. I choose to stand in the shoes of your good news, and on the firm foundation of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, the solid eternal rock. All other ground is sinking sand, I pray that I will not slip or fall, but that my feet would be firmly fitted on your lordship, my Lord Jesus. I choose to stand on you, so that the peace of God, which transcends all understanding will guard my heart and mind in Christ Jesus, the eternal Rock of Ages. I receive your holy peace now my Lord, from the sole of my feet to the crown of my head, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray the Shield of Faith into my hand now. As I take up the shield of faith, I ask that you might extinguish every dart and arrow that is launched from the enemy to take me down spiritually, physically, mentally, emotionally, and every attempt of the enemy to destroy my joy. I ask that my faith in you would make it flame out. Extinguish every flaming arrow that would come against me, my life, my family, my home, or my ministry. May my faith always be out in front of me like a shield. Give me the courage to “faith my fears” by choosing to walk by faith and not by sight, in my Lord Jesus name.

I pray on the Helmet of Salvation, that you might protect my mind from the thoughts that can lead me astray. I choose to take every thought captive, and arrest all intentioned ideas and motives that would harm others, or distract me from your holy will for me. I submit every captured thought to the Lordship of my Lord Jesus Christ, and ask that you would imprison those thoughts that are not of you my Lord. Transform my mind and renew my thinking that I may think God thoughts, and have a sober mind that is focused on your glory. Please protect me from being double minded that I may allow my mind, I reject to live an earthly life, because I choose to live a holy one, governed by you My Lord Jesus, the prince of peace, please have my mind to be saturated with the holy mind of Christ, in my Lord Jesus name.

Finally, I take up the Sword of the Spirit which is the holy word of God, I pray this powerful offensive weapon into my hand, and ask that your holy word would be fitting for every encounter I face. As the enemy gets close to me, please give me the insight, wisdom, and skill to wield the word of God to drive away the enemy, in my Lord Jesus name.

May the enemy and his team flee from me, upon hearing the word of God spoken by the power and direction of the Holy Spirit. Give me the sword of the spirit to cut through the wiles of the devil, so that I may discern the schemes of the enemy when he is near.

With all kinds of prayers, supplication, and intercession I pray to you my Lord God as the one who fights my battles. Now that I’m in your holy powerful armor, I walk away covered and ready to face my day as you go before me, and please protect me in the midst of the spiritual warfare in this unseen world, in my Lord Jesus name.

Thank you my Lord, for the spiritual weapons of armor and prayer that you have given me. It is written no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and you will refute every tongue that accuses me. 

Thank you Father God, my Lord Jesus and the Holy Spirit, that I am more than a conqueror in my Lord Jesus. I pray all of this in the mighty name of my Lord God and Savior Jesus Christ, Amen.

BORN AGAIN

What must we do to gain eternal life
We must overcome a time rife with strife
Jesus told us we would have tribulation
But to be of good cheer at His acclamation 

He overcame the world so we could be free
The Gates were then opened for you and me
Without Jesus we would remain behind
Separated from God forever declined

The Kingdom of God would be closed up tight
With no way to reach it far out of sight
What a great gift God gave us thru His Son
A blessing beyond belief second to none

On earth we must earn our heavenly home
We are not here to wander or to roam
We must serve God as He told us to do
Keep His commands love one another too

Be born again of water and spirit
Faith in His Word ready to hear it
Believe Jesus is the true Son of God
Honor His Word daily give Him all laud

We must pay attention to what it means
To pray in the Spirit we must it seems
In His presence we must be to hear Him
His soft quiet voice so proper so prim

God has provided all the tools we need
In His Word lies the key the food the seed 
To serve Him in this world in every way
We must be Born Again to earn our stay
