We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.

Thank God It's Wife of Wóden Day!!!
Fríge (Frigga) , "foremost among the goddesses," the wife of Wóden (Odin), queen of the Æsir, and goddess of the sky. Her sons were Balder, the beloved god; Bragi, god of poetry and wisdom; and Thor, god of thunder. She was one of the Aesir, the principal warrior gods who lived in Asgard. Friday was named after her.
A restaurant in the famous San Francisco Chinatown was visited this morning by the SFPD and federal agents, after an investigation showed the owners regularly killed dogs they found in the neighborhood and served them to customers.
Agents of both the Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) and the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) accompanied the police officers who searched “White Lotus Royal Buffet“, looking for dog meat.
I am not sure it is wise for Dominion voting to bring a lawsuit where they will be required to answer questions at a deposition. It is already a known fact that contrary to law and their contracts that their machines were connected to the internet and did download and upload data during the election. It would seem to me that once you state this under oath it totally negates your claim that the dominion machines did nothing wrong or illegal. Maybe it will be tried in DC where the dishonest judges are and they think they can get away with it.
I don't know ,,
You may want to check google maps to see if this restaurant even exists. It doesn't. Fake race baiting news. I mean just browse through the articles on "Lansing Daily". Just a bunch of nonsense meant to go viral likely cobbled together with AI referencing a bunch of prior viral satire stories. The advertise/contact/about/etc sections are all just blank pages on the site. Good example of what to look for. The version I received this morning was exactly the same, except it had the restaurant located in San Francisco's Chinatown instead of New York's Chinatown. Of course, there is no such restaurant in SF either. As you mentioned, the link directs to a blank page. Apparently some version of this "story" has been circulating for the past several years.

SillyMe: It is already a known fact that contrary to law and their contracts that their machines were connected to the internet and did download and upload data during the election.
Dominion's CEO has already testified under oath, before the Michigan legislature, that a small percentage (less than 1%) of their machines can connect to the internet with an external modem. However, hand recounts have verified the machine count in every case.
The accusation against Fox News is that Fox News propagated claims that Dominion was part of a conspiracy to change the election results, and that Fox News did so with reckless disregard as to the truth of the claims.
That's not what I meant when I say I wanted Hot Dog!
They didn't just look, they found, in substantial quantities. Apparently reports have been filtering in for months about missing neighborhood dogs.
Owner faces 95 years, not sure if that's dog years though...
The dumbest five minutes of Congress ... extend that out to ten minutes after the Goldman remarks.
Historic decline in IQ could stem from poor education, study shows
The international banking problems surfaced in Europe with Credit Suisse and Deutsche bank trying to keep their heads above the water.
It now appears to be infecting US banks starting in California. As interest rates rise look for more trouble brewing and bubbling in the financial sector.
Well great, they haven't figured out yet what caused this microbiologist's beef soup to turn blue in the fridge but they're working on it. Now I'm going to have to remember to check up on the story to find out what it was. Unresolved angst! Maybe it was her husband playing a prank?
Quibble-DickZ: ...and that Fox News did so with reckless disregard as to the truth of the claims.
Can't wait for Dominion to try to prove it.
The left’s war on achievement is finally starting to pay off. Pretty soon the complete-equity level will be unlocked when everyone is equally stupid. Go America!
In the recent SVB collapse it was revealed that managers of the bank sold off their stock in the bank two weeks before the default. But what hasn't been revealed is that a number of favored depositors were warned weeks ahead of time so that they could withdraw their assets from the bank. I think we are looking at multiple felonies here and not a simple bank collapse.
SVB is the tip of the iceberg. The worlds economy has been on the verge of collapse since 2008. Steps taken then shored it up and covered it up but the underlying problems are still there. Worldwide there isa unimaginable amount of money at risk. How unimaginable? Picture it this way; our national debt is $31.5 trillion. That number is so big that we can never pay it off and will never pay it off, sooner or later it will bury us. But the unimaginable size of the worldwide money at risk is 50 times larger. That is money/assets that will simply disappear from the books when the economic dam bursts. What does it take for this massive unimaginable dam to burst? Nothing more than what brought down the SVB. It could happen tomorrow or next week or next year. We don't know when it will happen because governments have their fingers in the dike (no pun intended). They have been taking extreme measures for years to try to prevent this inevitable collapse. This can't go on forever. Something will trigger the collapse. The only thing you can know for sure is that before it happens certain big investors will get a heads up and they will get out of the banks and the market and leave everyone else holding a big bag of shit.
