Reuters (Yahoo Archived): Pfizer CEO tests positive for COVID for a second time.
(Reuters) - Pfizer Inc Chief Executive Officer Albert Bourla said on Saturday he had tested positive for COVID-19.
"I’m feeling well and symptom free," Bourla said in a statement.
Bourla, 60, back in August had contacted COVID and had started a course of the company's oral COVID-19 antiviral treatment, Paxlovid.
"Symptom Free" ?? It can't be Teh Coof then, can it? Covid always causes, "mild symptoms."
He must have anything other than Coof.
Get another booster!
Take another round of Paxlovid.
I'm concerned about this Pandemic of The Unvaccinated.

What the f**k are they planning on 24 september 2022‼
This year, Elul 29 begins at sundown on September 24th and it runs until sundown September 25th. As I detailed in a previous article, we witnessed the worst stock market crash in U.S. history up to that time on Elul 29 in 2001. That record stood until it was broken precisely 7 years later on Elul 29 in 2008.
Elul 29 fell on a Sunday in 2015, and the stock market is closed on Sundays. So no record was going to be broken then. However, we did see a tremendous amount of financial shaking in August and September of that year.
In 2022, Elul 29 once again falls on a Sunday. So there will be no stock market crash on that day either. But I will be watching very closely because Rosh Hashanah begins at sundown on Sunday, September 25th.

I've never understood the fascination that many people have with Teh Royal Family.
4. Princess Diana herself referred to the British royal family as “lizards” and “literally not human”.
5.The popular princess [Diana] went so far as to publicly refer to the British House of Windsor as “lizards” and “reptiles.” “They’re not human,” she said. 6 Diana grew to believe that the British monarchy, with all its hidden power, were her enemies. . In Great Britain, all members of MI5, MI6 (British intelligence agencies), members of Parliament, and military officers swear an oath of loyalty to the monarchy, not to the United Kingdom.  .
I attempted to remove the blogs and sites listed HERE.
They are the sites that aren't bumping up the link list when they update.
The links to them work, they just don't bump up. I know the four sites I attempted to delete, your site will be added back after "a cycle", please don't think I deleted your site for anything other than this tech gremlin.
I'm not sure they are deleted as they still show up, at least for me. Maybe it takes a "cycle" for them to be removed.
After a +/-24 hour cycle, I will add them back to the blogroll (if they do delete) and we'll see if their feed is detected.
Five minutes later ... Well that's interesting. I deleted the below sites, clicked "SAVE." Reloaded the page and they're still at the bottom of the Blog Roll. Did it again, same thing, not "removed." So - another glitch to play with. UFReal.

* The Daley Gator (New Home),
* The Religion of Peace.
The links to the sites work. The problem is, Blogger isn't detected their feed when they're updated and bumping them up as "most recently updated".
I'll add them back after +/- 24 hours. Maybe that will get Blogger to recognize the feed and return them to the "bump up" when updated.
I don't know what the deal is and why this is happening. Maybe by removing them, waiting a day and adding them back will fix the problem.
Thank you for your patience.

I'm certain the lanternflies are organic, or evolved from some wet-market somewhere and they aren't engineered in a lab that receives some funding from the U.S. We're all in agreement that's impossible, crazy, conspiracy talk.

Is it okay to refer to it an Asian lanternfly? Because it sounds like...
Working pretty much. Irish has a post that is so helpful. THANK YOU, IRISH!
There are a couple sites whose feeds aren't yet in the "recently updated" flow and I'm working on that.
Daley Gator (New Home) is one of them, there are a couple others. I don't know why Blogger won't recognize its feed for bumping up when updated. I've tried it every conceivable way, with "feed", without "feed", as TDG [domain] net. The link works and you'll reach TDG. It's that it doesn't bump up when updated.
Everyone that's been on my BRoll is still there. I had changed it to list alphabetically for a little over a day and then I read Irish's post, fiddled around and flipped back to "show most recently updated atop." I'm workin' on it. 👍

On Monday, Tim Allen mocked Biden’s recent interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes during which the 79-year-old president dodged key questions about record-high inflation and his own mental capacity.
Biden was on 60 minutes. I heard he asked how long the show was.
— Tim Allen (@ofctimallen) September 19, 2022
The tame joke was apparently too much for many on the left to handle, prompting them to lash out at Allen and circle the wagons to protect Biden. Some also accused Allen of racism, even though the joke clearly had no racial angle.

USA MacPaper (Yahoo, Archived): Jill Biden criticized for wearing fascinator instead of hat to Queen Elizabeth's funeral.
... the first lady, 71, arrived to Westminster Abbey in London Monday donning a black Schiaparelli bespoke suit and fascinator — a piece of headwear requiring a clip, comb or headband to stay in place.
Fascinators are "often worn by women attending formal occasions such as weddings and events," according to Fascinators Direct, an online collection of hats and fascinators.
You often see fascinators at joyous events, such as weddings. While they can be worn to somber events like funerals, the more accepted etiquette would be to wear a hat as a sign of respect.
Twitter users were quick to call out Biden on the apparent fashion faux pas.
Twitter user @woobs98765 wrote that a "big black bow in your hair" isn't appropriate for a funeral.
"Why did she do that?" asked @JoBaillie4.
"That tacky headband bow in her hair at a state funeral," wrote @TruthsOverLiars. "This isn’t high tea."
"The head piece really made my designer friends gulp," wrote @jijiipetti. "It's wrong all the way around, frivolous bow for a somber funeral"
"why is jill biden wearing a party bow on her head?" asked @Airstrip_0ne.
Black hats were difficult to find ahead of the queen's funeral, according to local outlets. The Daily Mail reported Princess Beatrice left a hat store empty-handed amid a shortage of black hats in London.
I have no clue on women's fashion, especially for funeral etiquette. But the people commenting seem to know their subject. I'll take their word on this. Tacky Tamale Jill.
"Black hats were difficult to find ahead of the queen's funeral." Well, let's see - - - Is this Tamale Jill's first funeral for a dignitary while she's been the wife of a buffoon who was a Senator for 100 years and served as VP for eight?
And it's been twelve days since the Queen died. The wife of the pResident couldn't find appropriate headgear? At least Joe didn't show up wearing his bicycle helmet.
Melania would never have made this mistake.
You remember the Lincoln Project, right? All those old Neo-Con Never Trumper white men who seek physical relationships with young boys? Yeah, them.
They're calling for IQ Minimums because of Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert.
The old men at TLP - AND Vanity Fair - are way late, and wrong, in their observation.

Biden says, oh yeah, there will be U.S. Troops fighting along side Taiwan against China.
White House "says", no this won't happen.
Biden says, "yes it will."
"White House official says...". Who - who is the WH official? Name(s), please.
Who's running this hollow, rudderless government?
The Anti-War Ghosts of Liberals' Past who condemned even mentioning the U.S. getting involved in a foreign conflict or war are mute.
"Biden said war? Oooooooh, we'll remain dutifully silent, if not supportive later. Because...Taiwan...and...uh...umm...reasons..."
But I can comment again on my own blog!
Some of the other blogs and sites still aren't rolling up as showing the most recently updated, while others are. I don't know if I need to eliminate the "/feeds/posts/default" suffix on the URLs or not. Still going to let it sit a couple days and see if it resolves itself.
If not, then maybe I'll have to go through my Blog & Site Roll and eliminate the "/feeds/posts/default". That involves work and motivation. ICK!!
Another option would be to deselect the option of those most recently updated roll up as such and instead select the method of listing the blogs and sites alphabetically, which is a preference I don't like. So...bear with it all. We'll see if the gremlins go away.
Saturday, September 17, 2022
As Irish mentioned on
August September 10, there's some gremlins around. I just noticed while I have the settings "on", that all blogs and sites should update with the most recently updated at the top of the list, that's not happening. Not just Blogger platform either. The Daley Gator (New site) is listed near the bottom. So it's [dot] other domains, including WP. Go figure.
I can't comment on my blog either. 🤣🤣🤣 I don't know why this is happening.
Just going to give it a couple days and see what happens. Maybe it's Teh Habbening or Climate Change?
Henry Silva, the rugged New York actor who portrayed heavies and heroes of various ethnicities in a career highlighted by turns in A Hatful of Rain, The Manchurian Candidate and Johnny Cool, has died. He was 95.
Silva also played the Draconian commander “Killer” Kane in Buck Rogers in the 25th Century (1979), just one in a lineup of his bad guys seen in The Tall T (1957), The Bravados (1958), Il Boss (1973), Sharky’s Machine (1981), Above the Law (1988), Dick Tracy (1990) and Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai (1999).
“Henry Silva is one of those guys you most likely will recognize even if you don’t know his name,” onetime Crimespree magazine writer Dave Wahlman wrote in 2016. “His face is something straight out of central casting if you were looking for a villain. It alternates between the insipid glee of potential mayhem and looking emotionless and dead as a stone.”

Climate Expert asked, what should we do with petrochemicals. Expert can't answer so... "You Racist!"
Higgins asked her a perfectly reasonable question. She didn't have an answer. What's the usual response when Liberals can't answer a question? Accuse the other person of being racist, sexist, misogynistic...they default to their favorite "ist", "ism" or "tic".
The Former Bronx Bartender and rooftop dancer who pretends she's a relevant member of Congress chimed in with her grandstanding response. She's part of the same committee. When it was her time, she REE'ed about Higgins because she too can't answer his question so..."He Racist! And a Big Meanie!" Scroll down the Twitter link under the above video and somewhere you'll find her "I'm ready for my close-up," moment.
The Left conveniently forgets Liberal Senators condescending behavior and derisive treatment when they questioned Amy Coney Barrett.

BBC (MSN Archived): White House strikes deal to avert US rail strike.
U.S. freight rail companies and unions representing their workers have reached a "tentative agreement" to avert the first national rail strike in 30 years.
The agreement, which was announced early on Thursday, ensures that a strike that had been due to begin after midnight on Friday will no longer take place.
The deal includes a 24% wage increase and $5,000 bonuses, as well as changes to existing policies on time off which had been a crucial sticking point for workers.
[Biden said], "We reached an agreement that will keep our critical rail system working and avoid disruptions of our economy[.]"
A disruption in our economy? Well, we don't want disruptions in our fantastic booming economy. Bidenomics! Build Back Better! Woo-Hoo!

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis followed through on his promise to drop off illegal immigrants in progressive states, sending two planes full of migrants to Martha’s Vineyard on Wednesday.
A video provided to Fox News Digital shows the migrants deboarding the planes at Martha’s Vineyard Airport in Massachusetts.
"Yes, Florida can confirm the two planes with illegal immigrants that arrived in Martha’s Vineyard today were part of the state’s relocation program to transport illegal immigrants to sanctuary destinations," the governor’s communications director, Taryn Fenske, told Fox News Digital.
The office of Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker did not respond to an after-hours inquiry from Fox News Digital.

The Gazette (Archived): National rail strike could cripple supply chain.
Little sign of progress has been seen ahead of a potential massive walkout beginning this Friday, after freight railroads and labor unions that represent more than 90,000 workers have held talks to try to avoid a strike that could cost the U.S. economy more than $2 billion a day.
A national rail strike, effective 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time Friday, would threaten shipments of grains, fertilizer and energy when global food prices are elevated and inflation ripples through economies.
NBC News (Archived): Supply chain concerns grow as deadline for freight rail strike looms.
A 30-day moratorium that has so far forestalled a strike is set to end Friday for members of the two largest U.S. freight rail unions, the Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, or BLET, and SMART Transportation Division.
Biden can no longer freeze negotiations to avert a strike.
Business Insider (MSN Archived): Amtrak is canceling trains as railroad unions prepare to strike, throwing the rail network into chaos.

The chief [I thought The Left banned using the title "Chief" in deference to the Indians. No? - DD] diversity, equity and inclusion officer at the Department of Defense's education wing, who describes herself as a "woke administrator," wrote a series of disparaging posts about White people on Twitter, Fox News Digital found.
Kelisa Wing is the DEI chief at Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA), which provides K-12 education to the DoD community in the U.S. and all over the world. After Fox News Digital reached out for comment, Wing's Twitter was put on private, but she did not immediately respond.

VOA (Archived): US Markets Shudder on Dashed Inflation Hopes; Dow Falls 1,250.
NEW YORK — Stocks tumbled to their worst day in more than two years Tuesday, knocking the Dow Jones Industrial Average down more than 1,250 points, following Wall Street's humbling realization that inflation is not slowing as much as hoped. (Insert your Shocked Face! - DD)
The S&P 500 sank 4.3%, its biggest drop since June 2020. The Dow fell 3.9% and the Nasdaq composite closed 5.2% lower. The sell-off ended a four-day winning streak for the major stock indexes and erased an early rally in European markets.
Bond prices also fell sharply, sending their yields higher, after a report showed inflation decelerated only to 8.3% in August, instead of the 8.1% economists expected.
The hotter-than-expected reading has traders bracing for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates even higher than expected to combat inflation, with all the risks for the economy that entails. Fears about higher rates sent prices dropping for everything from gold to cryptocurrencies to crude oil.
Dementia Joe's Marxist Inflation Reduction Act is off to a great start!
The Republican mayor of a suburban Chicago town is calling out Windy City Mayor Lori Lightfoot after over 60 migrants were shipped to his town and dropped off at a local hotel.

Pekau, a Republican leading the city of Orland Park, Illinois, said the 780-page bill was passed "in the middle of the night, with just 40 minutes of debate" and was purposely designed by Democrats to take effect on Jan. 1, 2023, after the midterm election knowing what it will do to escalate crime.
[...] Pekau said he felt compelled to speak out against the 2021 SAFE-T Act. He said the legislation will allow suspects charged with kidnapping – as well as second-degree murder, drug-induced homicide, aggravated battery, burglary, robbery and arson – to be released on $0.
"We already have this problem a little bit in Cook County, where they're letting violent criminals out on low bail or no bail. And you’ve seen what's happening in Chicago with crime and how much crime has spiked because of it," Pekau told Fox News Digital. "Like that policy on steroids is what this is. And it will be completely statewide, and it's a law. So it's not like the police can do anything."

MN "Republican" candidate Dr. Scott Jensen already backpedaling. Why not give your concession speech tomorrow, Scott?
Jensen is backpedaling his stand on abortion. Why? Because current MN Dem Gov. Timmy "Tub O Lard" Walz and the libs who worship at the Altar of Abortion are defining Jensen and he's too cowardly to stand by his (previously held) convictions.
This is Round Two of Jensen allowing his political opposition to define him. His first was conceding that he erred in what the libs inaccurately portrayed as Jensen comparing Walz to Nazi Germany.
Walz's tyrannic abusive policies during the height of Covid killed countless numbers of people in elder care, assisted living and nursing homes. Walz loved his new role of mini-Dictator. You'd think Jensen could take this issue and run with it, but no, he turns tail and downplays this after false ginned-up hyperbolic criticism.
When one allows their political opposition to define who they are and backpedal, you're losing mojo, and Jensen is.
Depending on the poll, currently Walz is leading Jensen by 4% statewide (Change Research). In the Twin Cities metro, Walz leads Jensen 50% to 36% (KSTP-TV). Jensen doesn't have a chance unless he can close the gap in the TC area.
Walz waited for a gift and Jensen gave it to him without even considering the optics. Talk about easy bait. Tub O Lard played Jensen like a fiddle.
FFS, Scott, don't you have any Spin Doctors?
Congratulate yourself Scott, you've just handed a second term to Tub O Lard.
This morbidly obese fucktard, originally from Nebraska, is going to be Minnesota's governor once again because Jensen doesn't have a spine or a pair of balls.

Chicago, Illinois, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) now says it is “immoral” and “unpatriotic” for Gov. Greg Abbott (R) to bus migrants from Texas to the sanctuary city.
Initially, Lightfoot balked at the migrant buses by calling them “racist and xenophobic.” While visiting a shelter last week, Lightfoot called Abbott’s buses “immoral, unpatriotic” and claimed the operation “defies the values of who we are as Americans.”
Lori is mad. Oh, when Chicago City Limits suddenly become the Southern Border she gets hostile. Well, that's not very Sanctuary City of her. Where's Teh Love, Lori?
She has no answers, no plan. Not for Chicagoans or the newly arrived Vibrant mix of potential Democrat voters. Her go-to reaction always is to defensively lash out at people. It's her only game.

Single best ad of the political cycle thus far.
Senate Republicans’ primary super PAC is canceling nearly $10 million in Arizona and Alaska ad reservations, raising questions about the party’s commitment to Blake Masters, its Senate nominee in the Copper State.
The Senate Leadership Fund, which is aligned with Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, is scrapping roughly $8 million in ads — about half of its initial Arizona reservation — that were supposed to start in the early fall. The group’s ads are now set to begin in early October.
McConnell doesn't want Conservatives, he wants RINOs and the UniParty. And that, dear valued readers who drop by here, isn't a "Red Wave."
Huh. Biden lied then, when he said he didn't have any prior knowledge of the Mar-A-Lago raid?
Page #2 and Page #3 of Judge Aileen Cannon’s ruling cites a quote from the DOJ own legal filing, dated May 10th, that Joe Biden ordered the National Archives and Records Administration to provide access to the FBI to review the Trump records. Note the quotation marks:
On May 10, 2022, NARA informed Plaintiff that it would proceed with “provid[ing] the FBI access to the records in question, as requested by the incumbent President, beginning as early as Thursday, May 12, 2022.”
August 24, 2022, Joe Biden was questioned about how much notice he had regarding the FBI raid on President Trump’s home at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.
Question: “Mr. President, how much advanced notice did you have of the FBI’s plan to search Mar-a-Lago?“
BIDEN: “I didn’t have any advanced notice. None, zero, not one single bit.”

TOKYO, Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- Japan's benchmark Nikkei stock index closed lower for a fourth successive day Monday, following Wall Street's weak lead late last week amid ongoing concerns the U.S. Federal Reserve's aggressive rate hikes will impact the global economy.
The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average lost 31.23 points, or 0.11 percent, from Friday to close the day at 27,619.61.
The broader Topix index, meanwhile, shed 1.38 points, or 0.07 percent, to finish at 1,928.79.
Local dealers said the market mood was dented following Wall Street's poor showing on Friday, owing to solid U.S. jobs data for August supporting the median market consensus the Fed will continue with its aggressive rate hikes to combat inflation.
"The Fed will likely push ahead with a 0.75 point basis rate hike to be announced later this month, with the central bank also signaling its aggressive monetary policy will continue into the future despite the impact it will have on its own and the global economy," a Tokyo-based investment analyst was quoted as saying.
Market strategists also noted that U.S. markets being closed for the Labor Day holiday on Monday added to a risk-off mood, amid a lack of fresh trading cues.
We'll see how U.S. markets react on Tuesday's Opening Bell.
