FOR NOW …

|| By FITSNEWS || With no Confederate flag on the grounds of the S.C. State House any longer, the crowd surrounding the Palmetto State’s capital building has dissipated.

Considerably …

In fact our erstwhile columnist Taylor Brown snapped a pic (above) of the current demonstration near the Confederate Soldier Monument – which is located next to the flag’s former location on the north lawn of the State House.

For those of you appreciative of the calm, we’d advise you not to get too accustomed to it … we’re just a few days away from all hell breaking loose again.

Specifically, we’re referring to a planned Ku Klux Klan rally which has drawn the attention of several local black gangs.

According to a source close to these gangs, the decision to lower the controversial banner has caused much of the tension surrounding the KKK event to subside.  In fact several gang leaders reportedly reached an agreement over the weekend not to follow through with their plans to disrupt the white supremacists’ gathering (which is scheduled for Saturday, July 18).

Of course while the gangs are urging their members to stay home, we’re told several black nationalist organizations are preparing a “show of force” in response to the planned rally.

Which means the potential for violence remains …

The flag was lowered last week in the aftermath of a contentious debate in the S.C. House of Representatives … one which has seriously strained relations in state government (and launched a curious congressional campaign).

euwe max July 15, 2015 at 6:30 pm

I didn’t call them Moonshiners.

Have you tried Tim Smith’s Moonshine?

Can you tell the difference in taste? Does commercial Moonshine get you less high? Does “real” Moonshine have an impossible-to-duplicate element in it that does something special to your brain?

Is the high better than Marijuana? Meth? Smack?

Is it safer?

Lynn July 15, 2015 at 6:36 pm

I’m no moonshine expert – I hate the taste. However, I did drink it as a kid from some illegal shinery.

I cannot imagine that stuff is legal today at that alcohol content – it was more like crazy shine.

Luckily I am a happy drunk — I spent hours talking to some really unattractive girl, who was insecure, and I felt sorry for her. I told her her how pretty she was and how much she had going for her. I was the laugh of the small town the next day, but I smiled inside.

I’ll never tell her name, for two reasons: 1) I can’t remember it, it was some 30 + years ago. 2) If I could, I wouldn’t, because I’d feel bad later, she was very nice.

Had I been drinking the regulated stuff, I wouldn’t been so nice – Ha!

Renaissance man

noun

1.
a cultured man of the Renaissance who was knowledgeable, educated,or proficient in a wide range of fields.
2.
(sometimes lowercase) a present-day man who has acquired profoundknowledge or proficiency in more than one field.

Lynn July 15, 2015 at 8:11 pm

And yet, you stand by the idea that a Renaissance Man prefer Moonshine to Wine, Potatoes to Grapes?

I actually looked up every possible meaning of Renaissance Man before replying, I know you are sometimes prone to use the least likely and most creative play on words.

Just go buy you some George Dickel (white label 90 proof – not that clear shit that Dickel is pushing these days) for no shit Tennessee sipping or Maker’s Mark for the best Old Fashioned.
An alternative is “Ancient-Ancient Age” burbon whiskey. Damn good “bang for the buck” and almost as good as George Dickel white label at a better price.
Forget about trying commercial moonshine (or any moonshine for that matter – it’s just a trend) UNLESS you are making it for yourself.

I’ve had some mighty nice tasting whisky in my life. But nothing can touch the bottle of Cuervo Gold my brother brought me from Mexico. I relished every mind-numbing swallow right out of that bottle. Never found another bottle in all the years since with that same liquor in it.

When I was working as a firefighter at White Rock station in California, after working all day cutting a fire break into dry grass with a McLeod, I drank the single most satisfying beer in the universe.

The second most satisfying beer was consumed with my back against a tree while my crazy friends swung from a rope into an irrigation ditch.

Alcohol had little to do with it.

I didn’t stop there.

When I was 8 years old back in “West by God Virginia” they busted a still “up the holler” from our two room school house (that’s right two room school house!!). We went up there after the “revenuer’s” left with the kettle and copper tubing in tow.
I’ll never forget seeing a rat floating in the mash barrel. I know “real” moonshine when I see it and learned how to know the proof by the “bead” when I was a kid (known in scientific circles as the amount of surface tension in a liquid – got one hell of a basic education from that two room school house – helped me get 2 science degrees and one business degree).
Anyhoo, after seeing that rat in the mash barrel I’ve never really touched the stuff. I’ve taken a social sip or two over the years but I don’t drink the stuff for that reason alone.
Most of the shit you see is flavored anyway just to mask the taste.
Only commercial “shine’ I’ve sampled is the “Dark Corner” shine from the Greenville distillery downtown. It tasted like the schnapps I drank in Germany when I was in the service. I mentioned that to the head distiller and he told me that I was the 3rd or 4th guy who had been stationed in Germany to say that……………..
No alcohol buzz will ever beat reefer or hash (so I’ve been told….)

Don’t go anywhere near that place tomorrow.

The new black panther rally at 11-3 and the KKK at 3-5. This wont be pretty. Only idiots leading this state would allow either of these groups to assemble on the states lawn. Neither are from this state, surely something can be done to legally keep them out. Either way you wont find me near that place.

Either BT had his alias hacked or he never meant anything he said. Interesting in all this time he has had an alias, suddenly it is private.

He is talking out both sides of his mouth on all issues. He stands for less than someone who stands for nothing. Those who stand for nothing just keep their mouth shut and hope no one notices. Those who stand for less, play games without ever explaining a single thing.

Am I the only one who notices that he suddenly comments “Will Folks is RIGHT” when he has constantly praised Gov. Haley? I like him better when he pretended he liked Haley.

Republicans haven’t been able to genetically engineer a more vile monster with what limited technology they have at their disposal…

The facts of life… to make an alteration in the evolvement of an organic life system is fatal. A coding sequence cannot be revised once it’s been established.

Why not?

Because by the second day of incubation, any cells that have undergone reversion mutation give rise to revertant colonies, like rats leaving a sinking ship; then the ship… sinks.

What about EMS-3 recombination?

We’ve already tried it – ethyl, methane, sulfinate as an alkylating agent and potent mutagen; it created a virus so lethal the subject was dead before it even left the table.

Then a repressor protein, that would block the operating cells.

Wouldn’t obstruct replication; but it does give rise to an error in replication, so that the newly formed DNA strand carries with it a mutation – and you’ve got a virus again… but this, all of this is academic. He was made as evil as Republicans could make him.

But not to last.

The light that burns twice as bright burns half as long – and he has burned so very, very brightly.

Lynn July 15, 2015 at 8:25 pm

Half that sounds like something out of Blade Runner, the other half, something I will have to figure out, as I know you are unlikely to provide any answers.

You are one of the limited few on this site, I believe to be REAL and not replicants of the article makers. Why? Who the hell could come up with stuff like this? If the source could, we would have articles about DNA.

I’ve read Genome several years back, an interest in DNA, particularly testing that shows I am unlikely to have heart problems…haha…but nothing here sounds familiar…

save Blade Runner.
