    Happy President’s Day. Which President are you celebrating today?

    James Knox Polk. The most successful President in US history.

    • rightymouse says:

      Favorite President? Right now, it’s Trump!! ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Octopus says:

        Trump for the win. Washington is my close second.

      • windbag says:

        Yeah, but did Trump have his gallstones removed sans anesthesia or sterilization? At age 17?

        • rightymouse says:

          I don’t think so. But I dare say that they were both Democrats. Trump for less time than Polk, thank goodness. ๐Ÿ™‚

        • rightymouse says:

          That reminds me. John Adams’ daughter, Abigail Smith, had a breast removed without anesthesia according to wiki, although I do remember reading that she was given Laudanum (opium) for sedation.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abigail_Adams_Smith

          • Octopus says:

            Laudanum was strong medicine, and there were LOTS of addicts. The Opiate Crisis of the time.

          • rightymouse says:

            As a quick segue…I was given morphine before minor surgery in Bangkok when I was in my 20’s & working for the refugee office. All I can say is that I remember is not giving a crap what happened to me as I was being wheeled to surgery.

          • windbag says:

            A guy I knew had some serious health issues, and was in the hospital for months with about a 4″ hole in his gut, draining various nastinesses. He said that when he was first admitted, they gave him morphine, and that they could’ve cut his legs off and he wouldn’t have cared. Then he corrected himself and said, “Well, I would’ve cared, but I wouldn’t have felt it.”

          • Octopus says:

            One night when I was in college I was drinking with a buddy at his house, getting ready to hit the bars, and his older brother came over with a friend who looked sketchy as hell. They proceeded to search the house for a usable needle, could only find a dull one, and “fixed it” by sharpening it with sandpaper. Then they both shot up some heroin, right at the kitchen table in front of us. I thought the friend was going to die, as his eyes rolled up in his head and he nearly fell off the chair. He was okay, though — I mean, for a heroin addict. Within a few minutes they were both reclining on the couch in the next room, mumbling sweet nothings.

            I never had the urge to try the hard stuff after that experience.

          • Bunk X says:

            Eddie Poe was the first laudanum addict I ever read about.

            Although I had access to the heavy dope, I’d already been warned by some older guys who got off the stuff. Every one of them said the same thing: “Don’t even try it. You’ll like it too much.”

    • Bunk X says:

      According to the NAACP:

      From 1882-1968, 4,743 lynchings occurred in the United States. Of these people that were lynched 1,297 were white. The white people lynched accounted for 27.3% of all lynchings.

      California, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming lynched more whites than blacks.

      About 100%, Iโ€™d say. I understand the police picked up a couple of magazines from the Nigerian brothersโ€™ place, with the implication being they cut the letters from them. I hope this goes to trial so we can enjoy the full discovery process.

    • rightymouse says:

      America tried what we call socialism early on in the Plymouth Colony. The colonists found out early on that it encouraged the slackers to do what they do best – suck on the gains of those willing to produce & they did nothing but create resentment in the productive. They got rid of the collectivism & went back to ‘each man for himself & family’. The rest is history.

      • Octopus says:

        The same exact thing happened on every hippie commune in the Sixties and beyond. A few people ended up doing all the work, while the moonchildren partied and screwed around. They all go bust in fairly short order.

            Another website I comment on occasionally had the same thing, where my login info was erased after every post. I think it must have had something to do with a recent auto-update to Windows 10. Maybe they’ll fix it? Is that too much to hope for?

    Poor Chunky. All his favorite hoaxers are going down. Smollett, Muellers Nothingburger Russian Collusion, no one believes Climate Hoax anymore (and is sick of it), AOC turns out to be just an idiot and so many others. Cheer up Chunk. You’re still CEO of your very own internet begging website!

    Idiotic Californicating libtards have royally pissed off the President by leading the charge to sue him over wall funding. Then casually announce that they blew/wasted $2.5 billion in Federal grant money on a high speed rail project that will never get built. Comically this was supposed to be Jerry Brown’s “legacy” LOL!

    Now Trump’s making it clear he’s looking to claw back the lost $2.5 bil and “intends to” block another close to $1 bil they still had coming.

    No wonder Chunky wanted to join them so bad. He’s a natural at blind hatred and self-thwarting vindictiveness. He’s the guy who goes all scorched Earth except ends up only burning down his own house while everyone stands around laughing at him.

        He’s a killer, that guy. I used to play a lot of gnip-gnop back in HS and college, as my HS friends and I had access to basement tables we’d incorporate into party activities, and just goofing around in general. When I lived in a dorm in my first year of college, I used to play just about every day or night in the social area — I was a contender. Never the best player, but always a threat. The best player that year was an ex-seminarian who flunked out of seminary school because he wanted to have the intercourse with the pretty ladies, and had worked out a lot of frustration on the table while pursuing that relationship with the Catholic Church. He was awesome.

        • rightymouse says:

          I learned to play at a young age & was a very good player. Formidable, in fact. Then I had a stroke in 2009 that took out fine motor in my right side/hand. Coordination is not my strength now, even after therapy. But I can write again (sort of) & use a keyboard.

            I was good at making diving saves on run-of-the-mill college dorm players, though. I was also pretty good at switching hands under extreme pressure.

I wish she would just stop trying to find the missing puzzle-piece for awhile, and focus on herself and her career, which are going just fine.

      Sorry to hear this, ISTE! It happened once to me years ago when I lived in California, and I remember the disorientation. Best thing to do is get out there and start looking for a new job. Perhaps at a company that’s bigger/more successful?

    Nils Lofgren was a l’il rockstar who never really made it big, but he had the talent. Wrote a bunch of good rock tunes, and could play guitar better than most of his peers. I saw him in Ypsilanti in 1980, at a small venue off of Michigan Ave. He had one of those little trampolines set up on the stage, and did some flips off of it during his solos. Later, I saw him with Springsteen’s E Street Band, filling in for Miami Steve Van Zandt who was trying to get his own solo career off the ground, to no avail. He tore it up on guitar with Springsteen. Anti-Springsteen People, I know — he’s a no-good apparatchik. ๐Ÿ˜†

      Nils wrote this song to Keith Richards back when everyone thought Richards was about to kill himself with heroin. Well, turns out Keith is immortal, and nothing can kill him. He’ll prolly outlive Nils, and me for that matter.

      This is a beautiful piece of acoustic guitar pickin’, with the most gorgeous stuff happening after the three-minute mark.

    The Socialist Nightmare is already here. Keep throwing more money at the bums, instead of encouraging them to move along. It’s working a treat, as they say. ๐Ÿ˜†

    The last time we had one of these “wind bombs” or whatever they call them now, we had a 30-foot pine blow over onto our garage. Luckily, damage was minor. Hope the power doesn’t go out — it’s been flickering, and we haven’t even had the worst wind yet. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

      Dammit! Michigan’s winds are pounding NE Ohio!
      We had brunch in Chagrin Falls this morning & the lights went out twice in the restaurant. When we left, the street lights on Main Street were out. We’re home now and the 50 degrees mild weather we woke to this morning is now 49 degrees but cloudy & very, very windy. We also had some hail as we came down the driveway.

      We don’t make the rules, we just play by them.

      Feinstein’s Party will now have to drink from the very well they poisoned.

      I shall laugh.

      It’s not a “hit job”, you schlub … it’s an own goal.

    Our power went kaplooey and we went out to get something to eat. Lots of places closed due to the power outage. Found a rib joint on a generator. Got home & power is back on. YAYYY!
