There is a story about mean old American Airlines

enforcing a rule and angering a special snowflake.

What happened is the Snowflake got a complimentary flight with the stipulation she conform to the dress code set up my American. To put it simply, she got a freebie. All she had to do to qualify is dress accordingly.

Of course she didn't dress accordingly. American refused to let her fly and the Social Justice Warriors are up in arms.

My guess is that as a result of this American will rethink their policy and stop issuing complimentary passes, although I may be wrong.

In short this little snowflake probably made something good go away. Companies often do this. When a freebie starts to cause them grief they simply eliminate it.

Actually what the employees ought to do for the little snowflake is throw a party to show their appreciation for ruining somethng for everyone else. A nice little party involving a GI blanket, boot socks and padlocks.

That is what people who ruin things for everyone else deserve.

You get what you vote for.



Stupidity on the part of local governments.


Some sanctuary cities are grousing that ICE is giving them undue attention.


Willie Sutton used to rob banks because that's whhere the money is.


It seems to me that ICE is patrolling sanctualy cities because that's where the illegal immigrants are.


I'd bet that if thee cities would give up the criminals in them that they would leave. If the illegals leave it is pretty likely thaat ICE would stop patrolling them becaue it would prove to be as fruitful as robbing a bank that has no money in it.



Of course, the people of those cities have to accept a lot of the responsibility for this because they elected the dumbasses that created this mess.

The motion is tabled with little likelihood of it going anywhere.

I have sad heartedly decided against getting a Royal Enfield motorcycle.
I an also very grateful for one specific piece of advice a shipmate gave me.
Don't let anyone talk you out of getting a motorcycle, but don't let anyone talk you into it, either,” he said. It is some of the best advice I have ever gotten. It is to be my decision and my decision only.
As it stands now I am not getting a motorcycle of any size. I do reserve the right to rethink this, though. The issue is not 100 discarded, it is on the table with little liklihood of going anywhere.
I am, however going to take a class and get licensed for a motorcycle.

I used to have a motorcycle license years ago but when I changed my license PA would not honor it. I have wanted to get the endorsement for years and now think I will.

Yesterday's adventure in getting rid of paint has dragged on.



I still have it and can not seem to figure out how to get rid of it easily or inexpensively.


Mrs Pic says she can get rid of it through our trash service but it is going to wind up being a circus. Apparently they wil have to send out all sortss of special packaging.


It is stuff like this that actually causes a lot of illegal behavior. I know I could have ditched it somewhere and be done with it. I am loathe to do stuff like this for a couple of reasons. First it is wrong. Secondly getting caught would be costly and there is no shortage of little hippis stoolies out there. These stoolies would rat on a person for the same thing they would do if push came to shove.


Thhe system actually causes a lot of illegal behavior because they make things like this difficult. I'd bet that even all but the most die hard earth mama would ditch something like old paint if they were stuck with it.


Along the same lines a woman that was one serious King-Hell animal advocate moved to Florida and woke up to find an alligator on her front porch. Her attitude was "Get rid of it and I don't care how!" There's a lot of that going around when you think about it. Everyone seems to want to tell everyone else how to live. Nobody likes being told how to live, though.


The woman, who was both a tree hugger and gun control advocate pulled out a pistol and shot the hapless animal. After all, it was HER front porch. Had it been someone else's her attitude would likely have been different.


I suppose it would be one thing if the trash companies made it easy and had, for example, a monthly opportunity to get rid of stuff like unused paint.


I have figured out how to get rid of stuff like old unused brake fluid, transmission fluid and the like. You dump it in with your drain oil and take it to the oil recycling place. I actually have a guy that burns drain oil for heat in the winter. Don't add anti-freeze, paint or anything that will not burn though.


Paint is another category altogether.


The part that makes me wonder is that wee are talking about plain, ordinary latex/water based paint.



As time passes and the list of things that are hard to get rid of grows and the places to get rid of this stuff dwindles it looks like the human race is going to bury itself in its own rubbish.

Where do you get rid of paint?


Seems that in this day and age getting rid of simple latex based paint takes a crack team of HAZMAT specialists.  

I think that what I'll do is give it to the neighborhood kids a couple of weeks before Halloween.

More government wonderfulness (not!)


I just got a shipment in of two dozen Old School 100 watt bulbs which I can use.

Needless to say the tree huggers are going to babble that I am ruining the entire planet but as usual they don't think.

The have two choices. I can either use a single 100 watt bulb as a heater to keep my plumbing from freezing in the winter or I can use a 1300 watt heater. Pick one.

The other use I have for Old School lights is by my reloading bench. My powder scale is magnetically dampened and florescent and LEDs can effect it. Powder scales are nothing to fool with.

Anyway I ought to be good to go for a while.

Between light bulbs and gas cans the government can screw up almost everything it touches. About the only thing they seem to have done right is make the P-38 can opener.
