Big news of the day:

No Winners in $524 Million Powerball Jackpot

No one had the winning numbers for the estimated $524 million Powerball jackpot — 47, 2, 63, 62, 11 and the Powerball of 17 — which means Saturday’s jackpot will be an estimated $675 million, the largest lottery jackpot in U.S. history. The previous largest was a Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million in 2012.

[…]

If you are the sole winner on Saturday, after taxes you’ll be about 5% as rich as Donald Trump.

Trump holding steady in NH, according to PPP:

Looking at the track of polls over time in NH it seems that Trump isn’t gaining new supporters so much as the other Republicans just keep cycling around the non-Trump Republicans:

27% of GOP primary voters in the state say they support the Oregon protesters who have taken over a federal building in Oregon to 39% who say they oppose them and 34% who don’t have an opinion either way. Cruz voters (50/24) are strongly in favor of their efforts while Trump voters (32/33) are pretty evenly divided. Rubio (25/43), Kasich (20/41), Christie (20/38), and Bush (6/75) voters all express strong opposition to the protests.

No surprise there. Cruz supporters are as backwards as Trump supporters, but with more Je$u$.

52% of GOP primary voters say they’re offended by bilingual phone menus, to 40% who say they aren’t. This is actually a big dividing line in the GOP race. Among voters who aren’t offended by having to press 1 for English and 2 for Spanish, the race is tied with Rubio and Trump each at 19%, Bush at 14%, Kasich at 13%, Christie at 11%, and Cruz at just 6%. But among voters who are offended by such things, Trump leads with an overwhelming 36% to 13% for Cruz, 12% for Christie, 11% for Rubio, 8% for Kasich, and just 6% for Bush.

Religio-nationalism comes in many flavors:

‘Russia comes first,’ says Serbian Orthodox leader

Relations with Russia take precedence over relations with the European Union and the United States, the head of the Serbian Orthodox Church said in an interview.

Patriarch Irinej told Sputnik, a news agency operated by the Russian government, that “our relations with Russia and the Russian Orthodox Church are those of two brotherly, same-blood, same-faith people.”

O’Malley states what most of us have figured out:

O’Malley: Ted Cruz Is More ‘Outrageous, Unqualified’ Than Donald Trump

[…]

O’Malley, who spoke second, dedicated a significant portion of his speech to knocking Ted Cruz. The former governor of Maryland is currently struggling with single digits in polls.

“I’d like to say that Donald Trump is the most outrageous and unqualified person ever to run for president. But really, that’s not fair to Ted Cruz,” he said.

In his strongest criticism of Cruz to date, O’Malley called him out for his positions on gun control, saying: “Cruz actually says that the answer to gun violence is more guns. Senator, the answer to cancer is not more cancer, the answer to poverty is not more poverty, and the answer to gun violence isn’t more guns.”

[…]

A bit of an analogy-fail there, but his point still stands - Cruz is a wingnut case as bad as any we’ve seen in national politics.

No wonder he jumped off the sinking ship:

Carson’s ex-campaign manager: Trump will be GOP nominee

Donald Trump will be the Republican nominee for president unless something “cataclysmic” happens, Ben Carson’s former campaign manager said Wednesday.

“All you’ve got to do is compare the size of everyone’s rallies. And that’s really a demonstration of grass-roots support,” Barry Bennett told CNN’s Kate Bolduan on “At This Hour.” “Donald Trump is having 10,000, 12,000 people show up at rallies. A lot of these guys are having five or six people show up at their events in Iowa. There’s just not a comparison. You know, the establishment can fret about it all they want, but this is the new reality.”

The very intelligent people over the NYT disagrees.

Well, at least Douthat disagrees:

How Donald Trump Loses

Donald Trump isn’t going to be the Republican nominee.

Six months ago, that was a truism. Three months ago, it was the conventional wisdom. Now it’s an assertion that inspires sympathetic glances, the kind you get when you tell friends that you think your new personal-investment strategy is sure to beat the market.

[…]

One answer comes from Ezra Klein of Vox, who quotes Joe Trippi, Howard Dean’s campaign manager in 2004, explaining why his candidate’s Trump-like lead evaporated so quickly once the actual voting started: “People get more pragmatic the closer they get to an actual vote.”

[…]

Think about it this way: It now looks very likely that Cruz will beat Trump in Iowa, at which point Carson’s campaign will be pretty much finished, and Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum will disappear — and with Cruz suddenly ascendant, he’s likely to pick up their supporters, pushing him up to Trump-like levels in the national polls.

[… and a whole lot more intelligent sounding scribbles…]

All these very intelligent people at Vox and NYT - surely they’ve got this thing figured out, no?

Well, the wingnuts tend find support there among the elderly, even if the nuts themselves are younger. The retirement crowd is easily manipulated (just see all the late night television commercials.)

However, I hold out hope for Arizona. The demographics are changing and eventually the retirees will not be hold-overs from the 1950’s …as time marches on the retirees will be those who came of age post-Clinton (Bill.)

So In Germany they do Erdnussflips, like puffy Cheetos but peanut flavored, My brother-in-law was visiting and hit on the idea of dipping them in Nutella.

Soros is worried that the Chinese stock market tanking is a repeat of 2008. He said that in 2011 as well.

“China has a major adjustment problem,” Soros said. “I would say it amounts to a crisis. When I look at the financial markets there is a serious challenge which reminds me of the crisis we had in 2008.”
Soros has warned of a 2008-like catastrophe before. On a panel in Washington in September 2011, he said the Greece-born European debt crunch was “more serious than the crisis of 2008.”

After a 7% slide, trading was halted again in the Chinese stock market.

And fact is that the fees are a recent thing, since the parks used to be free entirely. The GOP foisted fees on the NPS when they cut the budget years back, and the NPS needed to institute fees to keep services going.

I don’t have a problem with paying for access to the parks, knowing that they would be protected in perpetuity, except that the GOP is working to undermine that as well. They’re looking to roll back the Wilderness Act and even pushing for development near or even in park boundaries. The result would be spoiling pristine views and habitat. That’s the GOP for you. T. Roosevelt would be spinning in his grave.

He doesn’t. He’s as ignorant as his followers, but his bully pulpit is so yuge it overwhelms any facts.

Like how the crime rate is unchanged with the migrants/immigrants coming into Germany.

In fact, in many crime categories, including violent criminal offenses, the crime rate is down in Germany. Violent criminal offenses are down 2%.

And Cruz is nowhere near the politician that either Goldwater or Nixon ever was. Cruz is a hack hated even by his own party in Congress.

So, yeah, while Goldwater came late to the opposition of the religious right, Nixon is so far to the left of where Cruz is that he’d be a liberal Democrat in eyes of current GOPers.

Trying to paint the current GOP as being modeled on earlier generations of GOP leaders is a fool’s errand. This GOP is so far to the extreme right that there’s not a single good candidate you can point to as being a model.

That goes for Reagan and Nixon (who embraced the religious right, but whose social and economic policies were far more liberal).

Trying to paint the current GOP as being modeled on earlier generations of GOP leaders is a fool’s errand. This GOP is so far to the extreme right that there’s not a single good candidate you can point to as being a model.

That goes for Reagan and Nixon (who embraced the religious right, but whose social and economic policies were far more liberal).

Cruz is a tent preacher with a law degree, and a little too capable of deception to be taken lightly.

Edit: Not that I think folks here are unaware of this fact, it just merits repeating. : )

Police told WDRB that the man was unable to leave because of his disability. Reid stayed in his home for three hours after the alleged assault, then left with his cell phone, keys, wallet containing credit cards and $50 cash.

The man was forced to crawl to a local gas station in order to seek help, where paramedics took him to a nearby hospital. He suffered serious injuries, including a concussion, a broken arm, multiple bruises, cuts and abrasions.

Trump campaign official arrives at Oregon standoff to help militants combat ‘psyops’

Jerry DeLemus, a Trump campaign official and the husband of New Hampshire state Rep. Susan DeLemus, has arrived in Burns, Oregon — where some of his associates have taken over a visitors center at Malheur National Wildlife Reserve.

Of course this probably aint going to play to well with tRump.

Donald Trump was finally asked late Wednesday about the standoff, where he joined most other Republican candidates in calling for the militants to stand down.

“You have to maintain law and order, no matter what,” the Republican frontrunner said.

If you’re not in the DFW area, you can stream them at kxt.org, where else are you going to get Iggy Pop, the Stones, Mumford & Sons, INXS, Adele, and local bands). The opening of that seems to apply here:

I was driving home early Sunday morning through Bakersfield
Listening to gospel music on the colored radio station
And the preacher said, “You know you always have the Lord by your side”
And I was so pleased to be informed of this that I ran
Twenty red lights in his honor
Thank you Jesus, thank you Lord

Brian “Booda” Cavalier, an Arizona tattoo artist who served as a bodyguard for the Bundys during the previous standoff, has left the nature preserve after the Daily Mail reported he had been lying about serving as a U.S. Marine in Afghanistan and Iraq.

Some of the militants also suspect Cavalier might be working as a federal informant.

“I have seen some of the posts regarding Booda, Blaine (Cooper) and Ryan Payne (and) I will try to get to the bottom of all this scuttlebutt,” DeLemus said in a Facebook post announcing his arrival.

Well, here in California the Presidential race is almost irrelevant. There is no way the (R) will win California, so it’s not a thing for us to do.

In fact, I’ll be hard pressed to find anything to motivate me to vote other than the numerous ballot measures that will likely exist.

re: #56 Decatur Deb

True here in AL for the opposite reason, but we live in commuting distance of the most critical swing state. (The registration is here in AL this time, but it’s a good organizing tool for our carpetbaggers.)

I know in actual electoral college votes, it doesn’t make any difference in really red or really blue states, but I also think that the actual vote numbers/percentages do matter in terms of “mandate.” If the win (and I’m hoping/working for it to be a Democratic win) is close, we’ll hear a whole lot of “Well, she(he) only won by 2 points, so doesn’t have a whole lot of support.”

That’s why it bothers me when people who live in non-swing states say they can vote third party or not vote for a president because their votes won’t matter.

re: #259 ipsos

This Trump thing in Vermont tonight is shaping up to be a real cluster, and the scary part is that it’s being deliberately turned into a cluster by the Trump people themselves.

They’ve put something like 25,000 free tickets out to a venue that holds only 1.400, in a small city that’s ill equipped to handle large crowds.

How is that not deliberate instigation of a riot?

They’re hoping a bunch of Bernie supporters show up so the fights can begin.

Blimey, that Ben Shapiro’s got no sense of humour, has he? And he seems to in such a frothing ragegasm that not only does he writes a whole article to to demonstrate his sense of humour deficiency, he demonstrates how impotent his rage is by focusing some completely irrelevant detail to keep up some pretence of coherence.

The periods in Trump’s tweet have got nothing to do with anything. The joke’s about the fact that Trump’s tweet is just 3 complete non-sequiturs chucked together without any context whatsoever, so they might as well be about Paris being the capital of Germany for all the sense it makes. It’s a deliberately funny misunderstanding taking the piss out of the original statement’s incoherence, a similar thing to the “period” jokes above. :)

Speaker Ryan’s delusions are just as bad as those of his predecessor.

And his solutions are the same. Repeal Obamacare, and lie about the outcome of said repeal (that wont happen because Obama will veto that baffling BS).

Our economy is hurting (it isn’t, but let’s assume arguendo that it is) - the GOP solution is ACA repeal for the 60+ time. That doesn’t improve the economy, and it adds $137 billion a year to the deficit. It’s not a jobs program. It’s not tax reform that forces corporations or the rich to pay their fair share.

The GOP continues to push regressive policies, and rolling back safety net programs. That’s hardly helping the economy.

Oh, and the recently passed infrastructure bill doesn’t nearly cover enough projects, or the needs - like fixing water supply systems so we don’t have more Flint Michigan disasters (caused by penny pinching GOPers who didn’t want to pay for proper treatment of river water that scientists knew would be a problem with pipes due to the chemical makeup of the water) .

I love The Great Lost Kinks Album. We kept ours till our son said he wanted it. What can I say, we raised him well….

(Once, at a family reunion, when our son was about 10, his uncle complimented him on how he looked in his dress-up togs. Our son completely surprised him when he responded that he was a “dedicated follower of fashion,” and then grinned. His uncle was also a Kinks fan and was just flabbergasted that a ten year old in the 1990’s would know that song.)

My college boyfriend had everything they made. But we broke up in the early 80s. Not before I got Ray Davies to say ‘Happy Birthday’ to him at a concert in Santa Barbara. Boyfriend shares a name with Ray’s brother, so when we waited out back, everyone hollered ‘Happy Birthday’ when Dave Davies came out, until my bf told Dave that he was the birthday boy, and Dave shook his hand and said, ‘Well, good luck to you then.’
