And the forecast calls for the 80s today, so in typical New York City fashion, we enter summer after two days of spring. I'm not ready to complain, as it is just beautiful out there.

Will you take $3.50?

Uh, no.

Thanks for playing, try again.

We've actually had good traffic with potential buyers, just no real offers coming through yet. Lots of folks looking, we just need one of them to bite.

Anyone want to buy a ±11-year old starter home in Elk Grove, CA?

Will you take $3.50?

Feeling frisky tonight, so I'll offer you $4.00.

(I'm going to ignore the fact that the Nazis were not "fascists", a term weakened by people's propensity to attach it to any ideology they don't like)

Eh, by just about any definition they were. Any college intro-level course to political science or text book classifies them as such.

What's interesting though is if someone were to classify fascism along the lines of what occurred in Nazi Germany and Mussolini's Italy, that definition could easily extend to Franklin Roosevelt. The National Industry Recovery Act reorganized America's economy into something like a corporate state, much like Italy's at the time. He also commissioned an Office of Censorship and the OSS, imprisoned Japanese Americans in prison camps, etc etc. I mean, short of shooting train conductors for late trains and directly instituting ghettos, America was about as fascist as any state at the time.


Gun Control isn't about guns. It's about control.

Sure is. One of the imperatives of the American economy is you can't impede big business, which is what gun control would do.

Warhawk:
Now that the outside is basically all done, and all that we could see from a time lapse video; what is the ETA until the finish work is done and you will move in?

They are working on stucco right now (can't see it in the photos - mostly the rear of the house and the opposite side of the house from where the camera is) and still need to paint the siding. He also needs to place the concrete sidewalks after power and telephone service is established on our property - they need to set a new power/phone pole.

On the inside, sheetrocking is complete and a primer/prep coat was being applied today. Texturing is tomorrow, I think. Painting will come soon. Cabinets are still a few weeks out, as is flooring.

The latest time frame I have is probably end of May or early June. I'm anticipating being in at 4th of July at the very latest, but it shouldn't come to that.

Frankly, until we sell our house, he can take as long as he likes.

I just like the phrase "mass-murdering fuckhead" and wish I could work it into the conversation more often.

.. maybe you just need to hang-out with a different crowd of people. Try vegetarians and painters, for a start

Warhawk was so busy with his house he didn't notice the aliens landing on his front lawn

It's not aliens, it's a miniature submarine for dwarves....

And one day you all will remember that the beached dwarf sub is on my SISTER's property. Just 'cause it is in the photo does not make it mine.

Talk about invoking Godwin's Law from the very start...

Haha, no kidding. But honestly, what do we expect from someone who shoots squirrels, raves about the dangers of "geef", and spends most of his time posting throw-away one-liner comments on Blues News (and probably other sites too)?

Start using your cognitive capacity for more than looking up quotes and using those as a substitute for actual thought.


And the rest of the world is definitely moving to more of a fascist police state then ever before.

Guess which country is leading the charge? I don't think you'll like the answer very much. (I'm going to ignore the fact that the Nazis were not "fascists", a term weakened by people's propensity to attach it to any ideology they don't like)

We were at the local Broadway Pizza last night and I noticed someone ordered one close by - it looked so good I COULD TASTE IT.

I almost ordered one - but now I HAVE TO have one.....or 5.

"This year will go down in history. For the first time, a civilized nation has full gun registration. Our streets will be safer, our police more efficient, and the world will follow our lead in the future!" - Adolf Hitler 1935

Yeah, and we know how that worked out for them...

Disarm those who MAY oppose you in the future - and you will have no enemies within your borders. It eventually turned into a law that only banned weapons from Jews.

Anyway. It was a sig - not a comment about a discussion.

And Hitler ended up in a ditch, covered in petrol, on fire, so, that's fun! I think that's funny, ‘cause he was a mass-murdering fuckhead. And that was his honeymoon as well! Double trouble!

"Eva, let's marry."

"Where should our honeymoon be?"

"Well, in a ditch, covered in petrol, on fire. I've already arranged it upstairs."

"Oh, how romantic, Adolf."

"Yes, I thought!"

Fun! What a bastard! And he was a vegetarian, and a painter, so he must have been going, "I can't get the fucking trees… Damn! I will kill everyone in the world!"

And he was a mass-murdering fuckhead, as many important historians have said. But there were other mass murderers that got away with it! Stalin killed many millions, died in his bed, well done there; Pol Pot killed 1.7 million Cambodians, died under house arrest at age 72, well done indeed! And the reason we let them get away with it is because they killed their own people, and we're sort of fine with that. “Ah, help yourself,” you know? “We've been trying to kill you for ages!” So kill your own people, right on there. Seems to be… Hitler killed people next door... “Oh… stupid man!” After a couple of years, we won't stand for that, will we?

Pol Pot killed 1.7 million people. We can't even deal with that! You know, we think if somebody kills someone, that's murder, you go to prison. You kill 10 people, you go to Texas, they hit you with a brick, that's what they do. 20 people, you go to a hospital, they look through a small window at you forever. And over that, we can't deal with it, you know? Someone's killed 100,000 people. We're almost going, "Well done! You killed 100,000 people? You must get up very early in the morning. I can't even get down the gym! Your diary must look odd: “Get up in the morning, death, death, death, death, death, death, death – lunch- death, death, death - afternoon tea - death, death, death - quick shower…"
