Giggling teen flips judge the bird, judge not amused

Never mess with people who have the power to make your life miserable. That includes DMV employees, waiters and baggage handlers. And judges. Especially them.

A Miami woman facing drug charges made her situation much worse when she laughed at and then flipped off the man with the gavel. File this case under: Ill advised.

I love the continuing motif of “drop in, insult everyone, make stupid assumptions, and shut down other people’s opinions; then get gravely offended and accuse everyone else of being insulting, making assumptions, and shutting down other people’s opinions.”

You need to have the big bucks, high priced lawyers, and be a bit less literal when flipping off the US justice system. It also helps to be a Wall Street CEO.

New York Republican on gun control: Hitler would be proud of Gov. Cuomo

“We had been there since 9am, it’s now eleven at night and we’re told basically to shut up and vote,” he explained. “And that’s what this is all about. Just don’t question it, vote. That’s basically the message here. If that’s not dictatorial I don’t know what is. Hitler would be proud. Mussolini would be proud of what we did here. Moscow would be proud, but that’s not democracy.”

When questioned by a reporter, McLaughlin insisted Cuomo was “Mussolini-like” and then compared the governor to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Damsel, Arise: A Westboro Scion Leaves Her Church

I first met Megan in the summer of 2011, when I went to Topeka to spend a few days with the Westboro folks for my book project. During that visit, we talked about faith, we talked about church, we talked about marriage (and Megan’s feeling that, given the prospects, it would require no small amount of divine intervention in her case), and we talked about Harry Potter (for the record, she’s a fan). She seemed so sure in her beliefs, that I could not have imagined that some fifteen months later, we’d be having a conversation in which she tearfully told me that she was no longer with her family or with the church.

Mostly, the tears have subsided—“in public, anyway,” she says one afternoon, as we sit in a Tribeca café. “I still cry a lot.” Forget what you know of the church. Just imagine what it is like to walk away from everything you have ever known. Consider how traumatic it would be to know that your family is never supposed to speak to you again. Think of how hard it would be to have a fortress of faith built around you, and to have to dismantle it yourself, brick by brick, examining each one and deciding whether there’s something worth keeping or whether it’s not as solid as you thought it was.

As we talk, Megan repeatedly emphasizes how much she loves those she has left behind. “I don’t want to hurt them,” she says. “I don’t want to hurt them.”

Her departure has hurt them already—she knew it would—yet there was no way she could stay. “My doubts started with a conversation I had with David Abitbol,” she says. Megan met David, an Israeli web developer who’s part of the team behind the blog Jewlicious, on Twitter. “I would ask him questions about Judaism, and he would ask me questions about church doctrine. One day, he asked a specific question about one of our signs—‘Death Penalty for Fags’—and I was arguing for the church’s position, that it was a Levitical punishment and as completely appropriate now as it was then. He said, ‘But Jesus said’—and I thought it was funny he was quoting Jesus—‘Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.’ And then he connected it to another member of the church who had done something that, according to the Old Testament, was also punishable by death. I realized that if the death penalty was instituted for any sin, you completely cut off the opportunity to repent. And that’s what Jesus was talking about.”

re: #50 Ghost Of The Mare Island Mud Puppy

Ahhhhh, the stupidity of youth.

Actually, just watched the video, and… ok, maybe I’ve been around too many high schoolers recently but I think the judge may have gone a bit overboard here. Oh, not once she flipped him the bird - at that point the 30 days was right. But the first two responses, especially the second, was to my eyes way too much a case of Cartman’s Authoritie.

So she’s nervous and giggles and it irritates the judge, so he chastises. she responds and he sets bail. And then when he makes that rather childish “Bye-bye” instead of a more proper goodbye or even not saying anything gets annoyed when she responds in kind with “adios”.

Yes, she was stupid when she flipped him off. But again, I’m not feeling so kindly toward the judge in this case.

Head Full of Doubt / Road Full of Promise

by Megan Phelps-Roper (Yes, one of the WBC Phelps)

In a city in a state in the center of a country lives a group of people who believe they are the center of the universe; they know Right and Wrong, and they are Right. They work hard and go to school and get married and have kids who they take to church and teach that continually protesting the lives, deaths, and daily activities of The World is the only genuine statement of compassion that a God-loving human can sincerely make. As parents, they are attentive and engaged, and the children learn their lessons well.

This is my framework.

Until very recently, this is what I lived, breathed, studied, believed, preached – loudly, daily, and for nearly 27 years.

I never thought it would change. I never wanted it to.

Then suddenly: it did.

And I left.

Where do you go from there?

My opinion is based on watching teen girls in stress situations facing anonymous/unknown authority. They fidget, especially playing with their hair. They giggle. They are “flighty”. Oh, not all, but an extremely large proportion. And yes it comes across as them treating it as a joke. I’m going to guess that for some it is exactly that, and this might be such a case.

On the other hand I’m still peeved at the judge. I might be giving the girl slack she shouldn’t get, and to be honest when he chastised her for the first bit he might well have been in the right. But the “bye-bye” was /exactly/ what he was condemning, and he destroyed his credibility when he got mad at the “adios”. He set the bar then punished because she met it.

DC shooter wanted to kill as many as possible, prosecutors say

After years of thinking it over, Floyd Corkins finally had a plan.

He’d bought a gun and learned how to use it. He’d loaded three magazines. And he had stopped by Chick-fil-A to pick up 15 sandwiches, which he planned to smear in the dying faces of staffers he expected to kill at the Family Research Council in Washington.
….He purchased the gun used in the attack a week before at a Virginia gun store, where a French television crew taped him while doing a story about the widespread availability of guns in America, according to prosecutors.

Yeah.

Rios Claims Gay Men Are Child Predators by Nature

Today, the Boy Scouts of America board said that it will postpone a final decision on the future of the ban on gay members until May. Two days before the announcement, the American Family Association’s Sandy Rios said that gay men are child predators by nature and consequently should be banned from Scouting.

While responding to an email she received from a listener named David who opposes the current prohibition on gay Boy Scouts, Rios argued that gay men “like youth, most of them like young men” and go into professions like teaching and coaching so “they can be around boys.”

Based on the preponderance of evidence, it would seem Priests and Football coaches who purport to be heterosexuals are more likely to be child predators..

U.S. Corporations Haven’t Been Paying The Full Corporate Tax Rate For 45 Years

In 2011, U.S. corporations paid a 12.1 percent effective corporate income tax rate, a 40-year low. The statutory corporate tax rate is 35 percent, but companies drive their rates fare lower due to the proliferation of loopholes and deductions and the growing use of offshore tax havens.

This isn’t a new problem, as Goldman Sachs’ David Kostin shows. In fact, corporations have been paying below the statutory rate for 45 years (the chart uses 39 percent due to its inclusion of state corporate taxes):

On Frank Luntz, Fox News, and the GOP:

“…bullshitters seek to convey a certain impression of themselves without being concerned about whether anything at all is true. They quietly change the rules governing their end of the conversation so that claims about truth and falsity are irrelevant. Frankfurt concludes that although bullshit can take many innocent forms, excessive indulgence in it can eventually undermine the practitioner’s capacity to tell the truth in a way that lying does not. Liars at least acknowledge that it matters what is true. By virtue of this, Frankfurt writes, bullshit is a greater enemy of the truth than lies are.”

Washington (CNN) — After years of thinking it over, Floyd Corkins finally had a plan.

He’d bought a gun and learned how to use it. He’d loaded three magazines. And he had stopped by Chick-fil-A to pick up 15 sandwiches, which he planned to smear in the dying faces of staffers he expected to kill at the Family Research Council in Washington.

It would be a statement, he said, “against the people who work in that building,” according to documents filed in U.S. District Court, where Corkins pleaded guilty on Wednesday to three charges related to the August shooting at the conservative policy group.

Corkins told Judge Richard Roberts that he hoped to intimidate gay rights opponents.

Levin Postpones Hagel Confirmation Vote

Sen. Carl Levin (D-MI), who chairs the Senate Armed Services Committee, said on Wednesday he would be postponing a vote on the nomination of Chuck Hagel as the nation’s next secretary of defense.

“The committee’s vote on Senator Hagel’s nomination has not been scheduled,” Levin said in a statement. “I had hoped to hold a vote on the nomination this week, but the committee’s review of the nomination is not yet complete. I intend to schedule a vote on the nomination as soon as possible.”

The vote was expected as early as Thursday, but Republicans on the committee, including Sens. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC), clamored for more information on groups or individuals that compensated Hagel for speeches he has given in the past.

They’re accusing Hagel, quietly when not out loud, of being under foreign influence through compensation both financial and otherwise. Note this is a week after accusing him of not being beholden enough to Israel for their tastes.

Ireland finally admits state collusion in Magdalene Laundry system

After more than seven decades of exploitation and a 10-year struggle for justice, Ireland on Tuesday admitted its role in the enslavement of thousands of women and girls in the notorious Magdalene Laundry system, but stopped short of issuing a formal apology from the government.

A long-awaited report headed by Senator Martin McAleese said there was “significant state involvement” in how the laundries were run – a reversal of the official state line for years, which insisted the institutions were privately controlled and run by nuns.

But the Irish Premier Enda Kenny’s failure to give the women and their supporters a full, formal, public apology in the Dail on Tuesday afternoon has infuriated the victims and their supporters, who said such an approach risked undermining Ireland’s attempt to right a historic wrong. Instead Kenny stated his “regret” about the stigma hanging over the women.

“The stigma that the branding together of all the residents, all 10,000, in the Magdalene Laundries, needs to be removed, and should have been removed long before this,” Kenny said. “And I really am sorry that that never happened, and I regret that it never happened.”

Claire McGetterick of the Justice For Magdalenes group said last night: “Frankly their country has failed them again”.

Labelled the “Maggies”, the women and girls were stripped of their names and dumped in Irish Catholic church-run laundries where nuns treated them as slaves, simply because they were unmarried mothers, orphans or regarded as somehow morally wayward.

Horowitz, on how to convince African Americans to vote GOP:

“Democrats will fight to the death to prevent poor parents from getting vouchers to provide their children with the same education that well-heeled Democratic legislators provide for theirs. This is a moral atrocity. This is an issue to get angry about and mobilize constituencies over. This is an issue that could drive a Gibraltar-size wedge through the Democratic base. But Republicans are too polite to do that.*

This is merely the most obvious atrocity that Democrats are committing against America’s impoverished minorities. Subverting family structures through a misconceived welfare system, encouraging food stamp dependency, providing incentives to bring into this world massive numbers of children who have no prospect of a decent life just to earn a welfare dollar. These are the corrupt fruits of Democratic welfare policies which are spiraling out of control. Republicans criticize these programs as “wasteful.” They need to start attacking them as destructive, as attacks on the human beings who are ensnared by them.”

And the Irish government is still couching their words, in hopes that they won’t be put on the hook for reparations, even though they benefited greatly from Magdalene Laundry slave labor.

Killed By the Regime: Aleppo’s River of the Dead

…Bustan al-Qasr is located on the edge of no-man’s land between the fronts in the divided city of Aleppo. The Quweiq River flows from districts of Aleppo located on higher ground that are controlled by the regime down to the parts below under the control of the rebels. A prison belonging to Assad’s security service is located upstream in the regime area.

This time hundreds had come to the river, making the journey from other cities to Aleppo to search for missing relatives. Many found them and were able to not only identify some of the dead, but also to explain why so few had been identified in recent days and weeks. The dead were students enrolled at the University of Aleppo who had come from other cities to stand exams.

Yemen: Seized Iranian ship carried varied weapons

SANAA, Yemen — A ship seized by Yemeni authorities last month carried a wide variety of Iranian-made weapons, Yemen’s Defense Ministry said Wednesday.

They included material for bombs and suicide belts, explosives, Katyusha rockets, surface-to-air missiles, rocket-propelled grenades and large amounts of ammunition.

In a statement, the ministry detailed contents of the Iranian ship seized in Yemen’s territorial waters in mid-January. It described contents as “large, diverse and dangerous” weapons that also included night vision binoculars and goggles, remote devices, circuits, wires and rifle silencers.

Speaking of higher thinking skills:

In the United States, only 7 percent of students reached the advanced level in eighth-grade math, while 48 percent of eighth graders in Singapore and 47 percent of eighth graders in South Korea reached the advanced level. As those with superior math and science skills increasingly thrive in a global economy, the lag among American students could be a cause for concern.

I think Original Sin is an archaic and badly taught concept. The truth, as I see it, is that NO ONE IS PERFECT. Not one human is without flaws.

When I finally figured that out and got over the “guilty by birth” stigma, I became a much more compassionate person.

I mean, using the words “original sin” is teaching kids they are going to hell just because they were born. WTF?

Talking with coworkers. One said that their pharma cost last year for a repeating script was now 3x the former cost. On the other hand, my own two scripts were far less than they would have been last year due to way they now calculate the costs. Would have been $20 last year. This year, $7 in one instance, $4 and change in the other. I think it depends on the drugs involved.

So dumb. Let’s say they’re not a hate group however we keep other groups like the KKK and the neo-Nazis as hate groups. That still doesn’t mean people should go out and kill people in the KKK or neo-Nazi groups.

Evening all! A drive-by OT video of the Reynosa Pemex gas distribution facility explosion in September, 2012:

The first shot is looking toward the initial rupture point. You can’t really see unless you slow the vid down to 6%, but when the primary high pressure main ruptures it tears those silver process lines in the distance, just past the semi-truck, to pieces. The released gas/product expands with the original expanding gas cloud and then ignites.

The second view is from the side. You’ll see the same semi-truck from the first view in the upper right hand corner going left to right when the rupture occurs. This is a massive industrial explosion. Thirty-one dead, 47 wounded including some with massive burns. So sad.

Even his minimum-wage job is a huge education. I’ve seen the activation of a lot of brain gears (that don’t necessarily translate into home life—like chores etc).

He’s getting more responsibility and asking to go in on his days off if he sees they are short staffed —that kind of stuff. He is recognizing opportunity and seeing the difference it makes in his paycheck.

He might turn out to be a capitalist after all.

So basically, US corporations are cheating, paying lower taxes than elsewhere in the world, having less unionization and STILL are just keeping even with places like Germany and Japan?

Exactly. Because those foreign corporations get a lot more bang for their tax buck. Universal healthcare systems equate to less lost productivity from lack of preventative care. Keeping their military spending in check means they haven’t had to gut their public higher education systems. In the end they can count on a healthier, better educated workforce.

Because Doctors are G-d and know how many eggs will be viable:

The senator said that, after prayer, he thinks life begins at the moment of fertilization, be it inside the mother or “creatively outside the mother’s womb.”

“That union between the sperm and the egg is where life begins, and maybe where God places his spirit inside that child, so to speak,” McGill said.

“Therefore, I would hope that the legislation that we push in the future would state that all the eggs fertilized need to be placed in the mother’s womb.”

Exactly. Because those foreign corporations get a lot more bang for their tax buck. Universal healthcare systems equate to less lost productivity from lack of preventative care. Keeping their military spending in check means they haven’t had to gut their public higher education systems. In the end they can count on a healthier, better educated workforce.

The GOP, Fox political purge

Republicans and Fox News are moving to purge the controversial political creatures they created.

Both were damaged badly in 2012 by loud, partisan voices that stoked the base — but that scared the hell out of many voters. Now, the GOP, with its dismal image, and Fox News, with its depressed ratings in January, are scrambling to dim those voices.
…..

“The fact that we lost a winnable election has caused Republicans to take this very, very seriously,” Jindal told us in an interview. “I don’t think it’s just a marketing change. I don’t think it’s just cosmetic changes. It is going to require some serious changes, not in principles, but in the way we talk and act.”

O’Reilly: Epidemic of disrespect due mainly to public schools

After years of calling his political opponents “pinheads,” Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Wednesday night lamented the decline of respect in the United States.

He observed that a woman recently received 30 days in jail for cursing at a Wisconsin judge and giving him the finger. O’Reilly said the incident highlighted the “epidemic of disrespect in America.” The public school system, he concluded, was mostly to blame.

O’Reilly noted New York public schools revised their disciplinary code last year in an attempt to keep more students in the classroom. Insubordinate students can no longer be suspended for one-time, low-level infractions, such as talking back to teachers or carrying a smartphone.

It might not be an exaggeration to call it soul-murder if one defines “soul” as the potential of the mind and the heart.

One who learns not to think, out of panic at damnation is a person who’s mind has been mutilated. A person who fears his own thoughts is a person who is being beaten internally.

Teaching a person to despise the feelings and needs that are normal and human whether for intimacy or perhaps the needs that some people have to fall in love with their own sex - this is abuse too.

The way that religious people treat their own family, perhaps a daughter gets pregnant or falls in love with someone who isn’t the right religion, this is also often abuse.

re: #376 stabby

Their brains are tuned for fear and other negative emotions as a result of:

1) believing in Hell, in a God who will destroy them and
2) fearing their own sexuality etc - fighting their own needs on pain of damnation
3) hating others for not living under the same misery

Yeah, condtinueing in the theme started in chadu’s Post, I think we need to get back to the LGF standard of evidence vs. opinions. We (I included) see so much of the same bad logic and it’s easy to apply it to every situation —thereby falling into the same trap of myths and emotions we (I) often accuse other’s of.

There is such a thing as Religious Abuse, it is not pervasive. Simply being raised in a religious does not consitute religious abuse.

Simply being raised in a religious does not constitute religious abuse.

Exactly.

re: #385 Hercules Grytpype-Thynneghazi

Define “fact.”

LOL, good catch.

Original Sin being the religious interpretation of” imperfect, without flaws, or omniscient.”

I think it is a fact that no human is perfect.

I friend of mine’s son told me that he heard Satan’s voice in his sleep a few times and he was scared.

He was maybe 14 years old at the time and he was freightened like a little child.

Sigh.

444 stabby  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:03:04pm

His father had unexpectedly found religion when the boy was a little..

The logic of Christianity has horrible pitfalls though.

Yeah, that would probably be a sign of early schizophrenia.

447 stabby  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:06:58pm

He’s not schizophrenic, he was, however frieghtened of Satan, and therefore of his own mind. That’s not healthy.

re: #432 stabby

This will make you drool over how easy testing could be

[Embedded content]

after 27 years i don’t have any problems testing

what i do have problems with:

db engineers who change the schemas without telling you and then leave for the day

junior engineers who can’t seem to let ten minutes go by without getting stuck and asking you another question

the wonderful new philosophy that designing the project ahead of time is old fashioned and that the new way to go is to come up with one feature at a time, and then change it whenever a new idea occurs to them - this is called “agile” because the engineers have to jump around like monkeys tearing up code to keep up with it

451 engineer cat  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:13:32pm

i am, however, now trying to find out why the value “chuck testa” is not getting saved to the backend

re: #450 engineer cat

Hey, I managed to install the GCC collection and gnu tools on my android tablet.

….

Now what do I do with that? Heh I could run any text mode linux program. I could compile Emacs (my tablet has a keyboard) and program in SLIME for Lisp or something … Run an apache server… Ok I guess I don’t have any GOOD ideas for it.

453 stabby  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:18:42pm

Actually the charger connection for the keyboard is broken. I’m gonna have to send the tablet back tomorrow.

It’s cool but cheap.

The batteries for the tablet crap out at 40%

The clip on keyboard is messed up.

Also the camera is FAKE (heh no where near the resolution they claim)

but other than that it’s sweet

454 Mich-again  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:19:22pm

I stayed in the Church to be a pain in the arse for the true believers who refuse to acknowledge the horrible abuse that was part and parcel of the Church leadership for decades, and even centuries. I am a critic of all the evil people who have enabled child abuse regardless of the positions and titles they gained. I think the best way to affect change is from within. I do not disagree that many people used and continue to use religion to enable hate and abuse. I don’t give a crap if Churches go bankrupt paying off lawsuit awards to victims of their abuse. I don’t think Churches deserve tax exemptions. All that said, I do think there is a good message in the Gospels. Love all, serve all.

455 stabby  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:20:50pm

I AM in love with how wonderful the screens on tablets are now. They’re much better than laptop screens.

You can see them from any angle, the resolution is higher, the color is better and they’re touch.

i always wanted to write a cfg and compile it on yacc, since yacc is so cool, but i dunno what for since i doan care if anything is well-formed

you could try writing recursive fibonacci in Lisp, the see how many numbers you could run it for before you blow the stack. remember, recursive fibonacci is n to the nth!

457 stabby  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:26:55pm

What does CFG stand for?

Right now I’m trying to learn [Link: www.jetbrains.com…] so that I can write a language (and editor for it) that I’ve been wanting for a long time.

I have some language ideas that got lost in mists of time that I want to resurrect, and I want to target Java including Android Java.

458 stabby  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:29:13pm

Cheap tablets are coming with up to 2 gig of memory and 4 core processors. They’re required to have pretty good video chips. Really they rival desk machines.

459 stabby  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:31:46pm

I remember, back in the late 70’s reading about a symbolic math program called MacSyma and wanting to have a calculator that could run it. I have its direct descendant, Maxima, installed on my tablet.

Heh, a dream came true.

460 stabby  Wed, Feb 6, 2013 9:35:22pm

Oh CFG is context free grammar.

Yeah I’ve done grammars on yacc and Bison and some commercial compiler compiler at work and on Antlr…

It’s sad how hard it often is to get grammars working right.
