Going to go play on the St Joe for 4 days next week. As wet as Spring was the flows have finally started to settle down.

I'll have to check Silver Bow Fly Shop's site for current flows. Last week it was "blown out".

Per the article below, Stenger was asked for his resignation after the J6 "issue" (I refuse to use the term "riot" or "insurrection") by none other than the Murder Turtle.

Here's the thing I'm choking on -- why in the name of God does the Capitol need 2,200 police officers to keep that symbol of American bullshit (Congress) safe? Can somebody please explain that????

And note the propensity of Stenger to suck on the public teat for more than 30 years, ostensibly in his role as some kind of Secret Service Secret Squirrel and his (evidently) failed role as Senate Sergeant-at-Arms.

Northern Virginiastan is a hotbed of gubmint "I got mine and I want more." Disgusting on too many levels.  :fuelfire:   :whatever:   :mad:

Michael Stenger, the former U.S. Senate sergeant-at-arms who was in charge of Senate security during the breach of the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, died on June 27.

The circumstances and cause of Stenger’s death were not immediately clear.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) posted on Twitter that Stenger “was found dead today.”

Stenger, 71, of Falls Church, Virginia, resigned the day after the Capitol violence, at the request of then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who hired Stenger for the post in April 2018. Stenger served as the 41st sergeant-at-arms of the U.S. Senate.

The sergeant-at-arms is the chief law enforcement, protocol, and executive officer for the U.S. Senate. The sergeant-at-arms is responsible for security in the Capitol and all Senate buildings and serves as Senate doorkeeper.

In remarks (pdf) before a congressional hearing on Feb. 23, 2021, Stenger called the events of Jan. 6 “a violent, coordinated attack where the loss of life could have been much worse.” He called for an investigation of “professional agitators” at the January 6 protests.

“There is an opportunity to learn lessons from the events of January 6th,” he testified. “Investigations should be considered as to funding and travel of what appears to be professional agitators.”

Former U.S. Capitol Police Chief Steven Sund said Stenger and then-House Sergeant-at-Arms Paul Irving balked at his initial request to put the National Guard on alert after it was apparent that huge crowds were gathering on Jan. 6. National Guard forces did not arrive at the Capitol until after 5:30 p.m.

Stenger, Sund, and Irving resigned on Jan. 7, 2021, in the wake of protests and rioting across the Capitol grounds.

Stenger and Irving also served on the Capitol Police Board, which oversees the 2,200-member U.S. Capitol Police force. The other member of the board is Capitol Architect J. Brett Blanton.

Stenger succeeded Frank Larkin as Senate sergeant-at-arms. He was succeeded by Jennifer Hemingway as acting sergeant-at-arms until March 22, 2021, when Karen Gibson was named his replacement.

Stenger spent more than three decades working for the U.S. Secret Service before being named Senate sergeant-at-arms.

For no reason I can decipher, I'm reminded of the grossly obese late-30s Khephra primitive from circa 2001-2005.

In case one's forgotten, this was where after several years of sitting in a chair in front of the computer posting in "Latest Breaking News" on Skins'  island, the fat slob keeled over.  His mother discovered his body slumped--or rather, pouring--over the desk, and before calling 911, considerately informed the primitives of his demise, reaching over the corpse to pound the keyboard.  And then she called 911.

The Khephra primitive lived in a windowless, unventilated basement somewhere in Indianapolis with concrete walls painted black and covered with all sorts of "Goth" decor.  It must've stunk to high heaven down there.


I'd forgotten about that.  That was a long time ago.

I think far better than half of them are no different then Khephra was.  There's no way you can amass the post counts some of these people have without simply sitting at your computer 24/7 on that site.

Wow, that was a lot of jam-packed stupid. Does Drunken Aunt Nance realize that 99% of the public doesn't give a whit about this sham January 6th made for TV series/hearings? It reminds me a bit of the NFL draft fanatics (or "draft-niks") who are constantly obsessed with something incredibly insignificant. Rehashing January 6th, which was a rotten day that a bunch of yahoos got out of control, doesn't solve inflation, crime, gas prices, baby formula shortages, tampon shortages, porous border, or the 1000 things Americans care about more than January 6th.

(edit to add) BTW, although I tried just about everything, um... "pharmaceutical" that crossed my path, my
experiences as an Army medic convinced me that the horrible problems associated with needle use (and this
was pre-AIDs, even) meant that I was never ever going to try it -- not once (and I stuck to that).

For the same reasons, I never ever had a drop of a cheap "fortified wine".

If they really want ratings then Pelosi should get Hunter's stripper baby momma to testify.

What's the difference between a Christian and a climate doomer?

The Christian knows that he's part of a religion.
