I doesn't matter what the Supreme Court says. Not there, anyway...

 New Jersey is so ass-backwards on almost every issue. No wonder people are moving out by the tens of thousands every month... 
 

New Jersey is on the verge of further tightening its already strict gun laws as the state Legislature passed a package of bills Wednesday to increase firearm regulations and Gov. Phil Murphy vowed immediately to sign them, ending a long stalemate on the issue.
Under the seven proposals - many of which Murphy (who has an entire team of armed guards at his disposal) has sought for more than a year - New Jersey would mandate people receive firearm training to obtain a gun permit, ban .50 caliber rifles, require micro-stamping technology, stipulate new residents moving from other states register firearms, regulate handgun ammunition, crack down on ghost guns, and make it easier to sue gun manufacturers and dealers over gun crimes in the state.
So, if I read this correctly, you can sue the gun manufacturers until they go broke and go out of business. When they do, where will your 'armed' guards get their arms from genius?

I can give you at least five good reasons why we didn't grow up to be 
the over-mothered sissified pussies so many people are today... 

Because we know what was funny and what wasn't...
... 

... 

So - when they form a union, they can go on strike and put 
their bosses out of business. Is that how it works?
... 

Perspective my friends. It's very important.
 
The small black dot in the upper left corner is the planet Mercury 
passing in front of the sun. Seems kinda small doesn't it? That's not the only perspective here. In this picture, the sun is 36 million miles behind Mercury.

The phenomenon that Fauci experienced -  known as COVID-19 rebound - has been acknowledged by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In May, the CDC issued an advisory on the potential recurrence of symptoms and possibly a “new positive viral test after having tested negative” within two to eight days of finishing a five-day course of Paxlovid.
The agency noted, however, that the resurgence of symptoms “may be part of the natural history of SARS-CoV-2 infection in some persons, independent of treatment with Paxlovid and regardless of vaccination status.”
The CDC added that Paxlovid is still believed to be an effective treatment in the early stages of COVID-19 infection among those at higher risk for severe illness. Still, the agency has not found evidence that a second round of Paxlovid - like the one Fauci is taking - is necessary among those suffering from “COVID-19 rebound.”

A year ago today and I was bitching then 
about the price hikes. Go figure, huh?

This story is so fucked up on so many levels. Freeman never wanted to leave the Braves, but he felt the team was giving them the finger by not making a counter-offer to what the Dodgers offered him, so he got pissed at Atlanta and went to the Dodgers because that's where the money was. Or so he thought.
Turns out his scumbag agent never told him that the Braves had offered him more money than the Dodgers did and he could have finished his career on the team he loved playing for.
Now his contract is forcing him to stay in LA, where he's so pissed off he fired his agent and now no one on the team will talk to him because it turns out he really didn't want to play for LA at all - he just went there because he thought they were the only team that wanted him.
What a tangled web we weave some times, huh Bubba?

Can you believe they may be asking Benjamin Netanyahu to come as Prime Minister again? I know he loves Israel, but I'd probably tell them to stuff it...
 
Did you know he was actually born in Philadelphia? That's what I've been told.
... 

What was the first record you bought with your own money?
 
 This is what I bought. 
At Klein's Department Store in downtown Newark, NJ.

If I was one of the other Justices, I'd hide a plastic uterus in her top desk drawer. Probably scare the fuck out of her 'cause she wouldn't know what it is. Juss' sayin'.

I've had this sitting in the wrong folder in the computer for the last 18 months or so. Back during the early covid lockdown nonsense and stupidity, a buddy of mine up in North Jersey sent me this picture of a sign outside a deli near where he lives. That's just about as definitive Jersey shit as it gets. 
... 

Ya know, they really don't make 'em like this anymore. That may be for the better, but it was one helluva great movie...

It is summer, and obsessed Ralf Gordon stalks a high-school teacher, 28-year-old Diane Marshall. He watches her from an old warehouse while she is relaxing in her swimsuit on one of the boats. 
One of Diane's students, 18-year-old Sean Roberts -played by Jay North. Yes it is THAT Jay  (you knew him as Beaver Cleaver. Pun not intended) and Ralf's younger brother Lou, also watch her strip naked and exercise. 
An angry Ralf yells at them, brandishing a bayonet. Shocked at this, Lou falls over the railing to his death, for which Ralf falsely blames Sean.
Later that night, Ralf confronts Sean again, threatening to cut the boy's tongue out should he reveal anything. The sheriff questions Sean, who lies due to seeing Ralf eyeing him. The next day, Sean meets with Diane, who invites him to have tea. Diane reveals that she knows about Ralf stalking her. On their way home, Sean and she see Ralf watching them. Diane invites Sean into her house for a drink. This soon escalates into a moment of passionate lovemaking while Ralf, unknown to them, watches jealously.
Diane invites Sean to her boat the next day. Ralf arrives and threatens Sean with a handheld harpoon. However, upon seeing Diane, he flees. Diane later asks Sean to dinner, after which Ralf again threatens him with the bayonet. Diane then tells Sean's parents about Ralf's threats. The next day, Sean drives Diane home and they have a pool party together, then make love. Diane receives a phone call from her drifter husband telling her that he is coming back, but Diane tells him she is divorcing him.
As Sean gets into his van to drive home, he is held at bayonet point by Ralf and ordered to drive to the warehouse. Sean manages to get away and arms himself with a rifle, but Ralf reveals that the gun is loaded with blanks. Ralf gets him in a chokehold, which ends up killing him. Diane arrives on the scene, where Ralf tells her that he killed Sean so he can be with her. 
A horrified Diane pleads tearfully with him. Ralf, overcome with anger and jealousy at Diane's love for Sean over himself, tries to strangle her. Diane manages to stab him with his own bayonet and flees crying, leaving Ralf to bleed to death. Diane finds Sean's body, breaks down and weeps.

  7. The first record I bought with my own money was the 45 of Classical Gas by Mason Williams. The cashier put it into a brown paper bag, folded over the top, folded the register tape over the top, and stapled it to the bag.

    Through the record. I was almost out of the store before I realized it, but I went back and got a replacement.

    The first LP that I bought with my own money was Days of Future Passed by the Moody Blues.

They didn't consider this in their 'Green Plan', did they?

  There's a story about this in today's New York Post. You can find it here: https://nypost.com/2022/10/06/electric-vehicles-catchin...
