Still waiting for this to happen in certain parts of the Nation’s Capitol?

Battle music, please.

This site is a celebration of the natural rights endowed to humans by our Creator as well as those enshrined in the Bill of Rights adopted in the founding documents of the United States of America. Within the limits of law, how we exercise these rights is part of the freedom of our discussion.

Guidelines for posting and discussion on this site were outlined by our host, WolfM00n. Please, review them from time to time.

The discourse on this site is to be CIVIL – no name calling, baiting, or threatening others here is allowed. Those who are so inclined may visit Wolf’s other sanctuary, the U-Tree, to slog it out.

Fellow tree dweller 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.

Some words of wisdom from the Gospel According to St. Mark, Chapter 3:

The scribes who had come from Jerusalem said of Jesus,
“He is possessed by Beelzebul,” and
“By the prince of demons he drives out demons.”

Summoning them, he began to speak to them in parables,
“How can Satan drive out Satan?
If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.
And if a house is divided against itself,
that house will not be able to stand.
And if Satan has risen up against himself and is divided,
he cannot stand;
that is the end of him.
But no one can enter a strong man’s house to plunder his property
unless he first ties up the strong man.
Then he can plunder his house.
Amen, I say to you, all sins and all blasphemies
that people utter will be forgiven them.
But whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit
will never have forgiveness,
but is guilty of an everlasting sin.”
For they had said, “He has an unclean spirit.”

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

  3. POTUS reminds often that is WE…. that it is a MOVEMENT… a movement that has taken over the Repub Party and is changing it…

    We must NOT be deceived by the ‘man’ behind the curtain… that is to say a corrupt controlled media that tells those who listen that “the country is divided” (how many ‘close’ elections have there been? and when did they begin to be “close”?), that any DIM candidate can beat Donald Trump, that he is only a point or two ahead…

    That is not simply disinformation… or even propaganda. They are LYING 24/7. A sitting president who is being ‘impeached’ by the opposition with FAUX Articles (no crime) is getting THOUSANDS at his rallies, is enjoying higher rates of support from Americans than his predecessor who was ‘protected’ by this same corrupt, controlled media.

    PULL THE OTHER ONE!

    1. Bill Clinton committed perjury.

      So there actually was a crime that he was impeached for.

      At the time, though…the Dems tried to dismiss his impeachment as just being “political”.
      Which is, in fact, what they are doing now.

      2. Pat Cipollone – in his summary statement – showed their hypocrisy quite well – thot that was a good way to end their presentation – why he decided to forego what he had prepared – I have no idea – unless it would not add anything better than the clips he showed –

        Perjury is a crime – agree – however – what they fail to get through their hate-filled heads is that PT committed no crime – Dershowitz told them as much – neither Article is an impeachable offense –

        Clinton’s charge was by bi-partisan vote – wasn’t it – so how could they claim it was political? Seems to me – when it is expedient for them – they want to change the rules – much like they expect the Senate to continue their investigation – at every turn – they thumb their noses at the Constitution – as if it is ‘nonsense’.

    Well, I’ll leave the piloting to Mistress Dep or better yet, our resident pilot, FG&C, but we’ve been cruising at 30K feet ALL DAY LONG!!!!

    Of course, we start Wednesday with a Dep Daily.
    FLEP has been working like crazy on Twitter, digging up the good news, so tomorrow should be most interesting for his thread!

    Hope we all had a good day. Prayers up to Plain Jane, thinking about her.
    Tomorrow, we have another Shammmpeachment thread scheduled. It’s question day in the Senate and should be interesting.
    Another thread for tomorrow is USMCA signing at 11:00am Eastern time.
    You know what that means?

        but, no. d-rats played politics. Allowed NAFTA to run, hurts jobs in America. Moar tariff free goods flowed into US from Mexico and Canada.

        Daily, D-Rats validate they hate America.

  6. Starbuck’s to ban dairy.

    Impossible burgers to replace beef.

    Clearly, they’re preparing for our cattle to be gone.

    If Pirbright tries anything, VSGPOTUSDJT and Sonny Perdue will make sure they RUE THE DAY.

    Meanwhile enjoy flushing your empire down the drain Starbucks. Good riddance.

    SYLVAIN CHARLEBOIS: Starbucks goes dairy free, for the planet
    Sylvain Charlebois
    Published: a day ago
    Updated: 16 hours ago
    https://www.thechronicleherald.ca/business/local-business/charlebois-starbucks-goes-dairy-free-for-the-planet-403497/

    Starbucks aims to become “resource positive” by storing more carbon than it releases, eliminating waste and providing more fresh water than it uses. Everything coming out of a Starbucks store will be served in recyclable or compostable containers, from coffee to lunches to treats. These measures will help, but Starbucks’ plans won’t stop there.

    The biggest surprise will come from what Starbucks will do to its menu and the products it sells. Dairy, for all intents and purposes, is now on its way out at Starbucks. Dairy alternatives will be the standard in Starbucks stores. Whipped cream, cream, milk, all will be gone soon. While dairy is typically cheaper, Starbucks believes this will change. Starbucks is banking on its buying power and the volume it represents to gain access to lower-priced alternative dairy products. To entice dairy alternative providers to scale up, demand will need to be ramped up by other major players.

    The dairy industry will probably have some issues with Starbucks’ move away from dairy, but the science is compelling. Based on a study published by Science Magazine in 2018, milk production requires more land, more water, and will emit more carbon than any other alternatives to milk.

    Plant-based alternatives to dairy have been around at Starbucks for a while now, but this announcement makes it official. Dairy is as healthy as any other option, but that doesn’t seem to matter to Starbucks. It’s about the planet.

    Given Starbucks’ clout, other chains could follow if dairy alternatives become more affordable, as Starbucks is predicting, to the peril of the dairy industry.

    Starbucks has two things going for it. Sustainability, for one, has always been part of the company’s DNA. Under Howard Schultz, Starbucks prioritized using renewable energy, invested in climate-resistant coffee trees and gave discounts to customers who brought their own reusable mugs, long before the plastic crisis, which really started only a few years ago. Kevin Johnson, Starbucks’ CEO since 2017, only invests in green bonds and options. The track record is there.

    Also, Starbucks is known to sell products with higher price points than those of its competitors. Customers expect to pay more when visiting Starbucks. That will give Starbucks an edge, and help the chain absorb some of the extra costs. Demand at Starbucks is typically more elastic.

    In other words, Starbucks customers are not as price sensitive as customers visiting other coffee shops. Tim Hortons’ makes a point of announcing price hikes on its menus every now and then. This doesn’t happen at Starbucks. Starbucks’ brand equity is second to none, and it charges for it, with no apologies.

    Reaching these environmental goals won’t be easy for Starbucks. In fact, the chain’s stock price is down since the announcement. Maple Leaf Foods committed to becoming a carbon-neutral company just a few weeks ago. With some responsible accounting, Maple Leaf Foods can get it done without significantly tweaking its operations.

    Starbucks, on the other hand, opted to go even further and commit to changing how its operations impact the environment. Instead of looking at the arithmetic of climate change, the Seattle-based giant is changing everything it does, from how it procures ingredients, to menu design, to how stores are managed on daily basis.

    Starbucks’ bold move on sustainability points to the pressure the food service industry is under to save the planet, so to speak. For many consumers, especially the younger generations, politics have failed to provide an adequate response to the climate crisis. While governments face their electorates once every few years, food service providers face customers every day. And customers are expecting industry to step up.

    But accountability will be key for companies making bold commitments. Companies are known to fail the market on sustainability. For example, Starbucks did promise it would be serving a quarter of its beverages in reusable containers by 2015. That promise was made in 2008. By 2016, only two per cent of all beverages were served in reusable containers. The public won’t be as forgiving this time, and will not hesitate to consider any half-hearted gas emission-reducing initiatives as greenwashing.

      1. Dirty little secret there is to be able to afford Starbucks you have to earn more money which means somewhere along the line your helping churn the economic engine faster, not slower which is what their policies profess they want.

    1. Starbucks made a fortune off the marketing of burnt coffee beans. (Burnt so that you couldn’t tell the grade of the beans.) So they really think that eliminating dairy from their products is going to go well? They are obviously in a PNW bubble. Delusional. I don’t think that’s going to go nearly as well as they think it will.

    2. So they cant use almond milk, too expensive, not enough. Oat milk, soy milk are most likely. Soy milk, bad juju. I drank soy milk before it was a thing. Starbucks employees will put spoiled milk in the drinks unless you watch them.

        Meanwhile, Bill Gates is really invested in getting rid of beef, like in the next year or so. Seems like he’s convinced his crazy buddy Howard to join him.

          So…of course the elitists want to stop that.

          They want weaker, smaller people, because those will be easier to control.
