re: #10 electrotek

It should be noted the President of Bosnia, an Alija Izetbegovic, while flawed, was certainly a better man than his opponents.

Though, what the US and Pakistan did to support Bosnians did have serious negative consequences, what choice did we have back then. 2 of the major powers in Europe supported the mass murder of the Bosnian people.

When the late Christopher Hitchens himself had nothing but positive things to say about Izetbegovic, you know he was a much better man. He himself even stated his opposition to the fatwa of Salman Rushdie in 1993 as well!

IMO the so-called mujahideen did more damage to Bosnia’s cultural heritage than the Serbs could accomplish, but that’s for another topic.

re: #19 electrotek

Mitterand and Major had both said that what was happening in Bosnia was “correction.” Kohl of Germany disagreed, but couldn’t get most of Europe behind him. We ended up support black flights of weapons into the nation, ticking off both Norway and the UK.

We ended supporting Pakistan’s and Turkey’s efforts in the war. And supporting Islamist groups directly in some cases.

But, considering how our NATO allies in Europe were acting, we had no choice.

Hatriots, Niki & Chad Neal, owners of gun range, sued after kicking out a U. S. soldier, citing “Muslim free zone”.

If he wants to change it to a private, members-only gun club, then he can choose who he allows in. That is a basic principle of the Civil Rights Act that seems to be lost on a lot of idiots.

Emails show top VW executive new of emission problems of diesel vehicles.

According to the documents reviewed by The Times, a confidant of Mr. Winterkorn wrote to him in May 2014, warning that regulators might accuse the carmaker of using a so-called defeat device — software that recognized when the car was being tested for emissions and activated pollution-control equipment. At other times, the cars produced up to 35 times the allowed amount of nitrogen oxide emissions, which are linked to lung ailments and premature deaths.

It was not until last September, more than a year after the letter of warning to Mr. Winterkorn, that Volkswagen admitted publicly that 11 million diesel vehicles, including about 480,000 Volkswagen cars in the United States, were equipped with defeat devices. The number of cars in the United States has since risen to include about 100,000 Audi and Porsche cars with diesel engines.

True. I guess I was thinking more of that he calls Serbia our WWI ally which is impossible given Serbia did not exist during WWI as an independent state and the Bosnians were more a part of Austro-Hungary hence why the Archduke was assassinated in Sarajevo.

Family lore is that my grandfather’s uncle and cousins were Partisans during the war. Got no way of proving that though. He may have also said Chetniks but doubtful given the Chetniks were overwhelmingly Serbian and Orthodox. I understand completely why the West supported Tito over the Chetniks in WWII after some of the stuff about the Chetniks helping the Italian fascists out came ot light.

What you have in the region are people with very long memories. I do remember hearing about that book. Mine got out a few years before WWI too but I imagine like yours stil had some family there. Found that they’re actually pretty close to the Slovene-Croat border. That side though has been the least researched though given the scarcity of records that do exist.

The fact that she’s a flawed candidate because of her susceptibility to the pressure for war with Iraq is a weird-ish angle for Sanders to take to criticise her.
How many other Americans who traditionally vote Democratic *also* fell for the fearmongering?
Are they not stung when Sanders brings it up? Hindsight is what contextualises things; Obama got it right and voted against the action: but he didn’t pillory those who had.
His refusal to move for criminal charges against members of the Bush Admin. his desire to avoid ‘relitigation’ of that dark time in American history has had mixed results.

One was that those unabashed voices for war, even after the conflict went sour, were not forever chastened.
The second are those who now see the Iraq vote as a litmus test, and will never support a candidate who shared America’s anxieties.

Right wingers kinda freaking out over the fact that Trump has the edge over everyone else. Cruz’s path to a nomination is slipping away. It’s math, which as we all know, isn’t a GOP strong suit.

538’s Nate Silver lays it out. Rubio actually has a slightly better path to a nomination (if he survives SC, that is). Cruz needs evangelicals, but the states where they have the largest numbers aren’t winner take all states; they’re states that may either apportion delegates by vote percentages, or are winner take all by district - diluting the value of winning a given state.

Trump, who continues to lead in most polls in most of the upcoming states, has the easiest path right now.

It’s hard to expose his true motive when the anti-establishment mantle pretty much covers it.

Rural ares vs urban explains that precisely. The gun rules for one are often all wrong for the other. But that divide put that way bears no electoral/poll/ fundraising goals. So that rather obvious fact is largely ignored in favor of more divisive (i.e. useful) arguments.

Oh, and one more thing. Talking about a rift among Bernie/Hillary voters? It really is an Internet thing - polling finds not so much:

[Embedded content]

For all the chatter on Twitter and the Net about a rift between Bernie and Hillary, the fact is that the Democrats are in good shape - if they GOTV in November. That’s a huge IF.

I’m fairly confident that the first debate should pretty much erase all doubt and batsignal the importance of one’s civic duty to keep the wolves at bay.

Coming from a mostly gun-free culture I don’t assign much blame to candidates who aim to legislate against the ownership of guns for anyone. I consider it a blind spot of sorts. So I do take the time to read contradictory posts and consider their merits.
In some ways, I’ll never quite get it. My mood is more pessimistic.
I don’t think it’s possible, at this point, to discover a consensus upon which sensible and effective gun laws can be enacted. The climate is far too polarised; one half of one side (not the gun control side, mind you) is freaking paranoid. And besides which, guns aren’t like drugs. They don’t disappear after use and they can be used without firing.
The horse has long since bolted. It’s all damage control now.

Powerful Republican state Sen. Jane Nelson dismissed the findings as invalid, in part because the research was funded by the nonprofit Susan T. Buffet Foundation, which is a major supporter of Planned Parenthood and other abortion rights groups.

She also questions why two state health employees were among the study’s five co-authors.

“It’s one thing for an agency to provide data upon request. It’s quite another to be listed as a ‘co-author’ on a deeply flawed and highly political report,” said Nelson, an architect of Texas’ current women’s health program. “I’ve communicated strong concerns to the agency. This should not have happened, and we need to make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

WaPo article I read indicates that it’s a fight between Rubio and Cruz for second place along with another article indicating that Rubio in the FL legislature sought out a committee spot on a 9/11 comission and missed the most meetings of anyone by far. So it seems to me that his behavior in the Senate is not merely due running for President as he may claim but due to being someone who wants prestige but none of the hard work that came with it.

If the one poll showing Rubio way ahead of Kasich and Cruz is right, the GOP may get down to a one-on-one race between Trump and Rubio sooner rather than later. Cruz obviously won’t quit until he takes his shot in the SEC primary, but if he doesn’t win outside of Texas I think he’s done. Then we’ll see if Trump can add enough other Republicans to the third he has to make a majority, or if instead Rubio takes the lion’s share.

What you have in the region are people with very long memories. I do remember hearing about that book. Mine got out a few years before WWI too but I imagine like yours stil had some family there.

Actually Serbia was a separate country in WW1.

The Balkans have been a political mess and international football for centuries in any case. One reason it’s a religious and ethnic mish-mash is due to being the obvious route between Asia Minor and Central Europe.

I got into this with a wingnut yesterday, even mentioned that the family preferred it that way. He said, ‘No, they didn’t want an autopsy. They didn’t say anything about the funeral’. So posted the link to the story where family friends said this was best.

Apparently, the family can’t just let it be known to the White House in the standard, polite way, behind the scenes. They’re supposed to make an announcement and be dicks about it.

Yeah you’ve got tons Orthodox, Catholic, and Muslims all on the same land. In hindsight, the base thing to do after WWI would have been to give each of the groups their own independence but Pan-South Slavism as espoused by Tito was a big thing in those days so I doubt it could realistically happen. I am just glad the wars appear to be over. I know for a fact I still have family in Slovenia. I hope they managed to make it through all the conflicts safe.

Yeah, I wasn’t trying to sound defensive or anything like that. I just pride myself on my knowledge, history degree and all that jazz. I’m actually re-watching that excellent BBC documentary series that features the 14 war diaries. My only small qualm with it is that they did not include a diary of someone from one of the Slavic groups in the Austrian-Hungarian empire or a Serb. That world of alliance is the world that my mom’s folks were fleeing when they came to the US. In fact, my mom’s mom was in Europe for WWI. That land in northeastern Slovakia is today very close to the Polish border(like literal walking distance) but I don’t know who controlled that part of Poland during WWI since I want to say that Poland had parts of it controlled by Russia, Austria-Hungary, and Germany during that time.

Beg to differ: “equal” means “equal” - marriage licenses are civil contracts authorized by a government, and shouldn’t discriminate. Do think they should have separate forms for, say, black couples than for white ones? Or for, say, Christians and Jews? Hard to see how this would stand up to a court challenge.

I understand both of you but at the same time, these people need to realize that gay marriage is legal in their state and country. If these clerks really object to the forms that badly then they need to find a new line of work.

re: #224 Jay C

Beg to differ: “equal” means “equal” - marriage licenses are civil contracts authorized by a government, and shouldn’t discriminate. Do think they should have separate forms for, say, black couples than for white ones? Or for, say, Christians and Jews? Hard to see how this would stand up to a court challenge.

If it makes the dickheads happy to have different colors and working for boy/girl, boy/boy and girl/girl, then let them have it and leave it for the courts to slap down. As long as they all grant equal and identical rights.

I also agree that extra forms are idiotic and unnecessary, but if that makes the assholes happy and lets them do their job with a clear conscience, then I would not worry about it. But if it does face a court challenge and gets smacked down, then I also say that Kim Davis can go f*ck herself.

That’s just it. They won’t be happy.

It starts with separate forms for marriage licenses. Then it becomes separate tax forms to fill out. And separate marriage license offices. And so on. These assholes will not rest until they chip away at SSM.

I wonder if many of the other LGF members are also suffering. I was sort of surprised by the lack of commenting last night with what all was going on yesterday.

I am burned out beyond belief. I can’t watch the news because Trump is always on. I disliked him before but now I have a raging hate for him and I can only hope he fails so spectacularly that his business interests collapse around him.

As for here…I have very strong opinions and as strong a dislike for pie in the sky, wishful thinking, which is what I think Bernie is giving his supporters. Do I support his sentiment? Absolutely. Absofuckinglutely, even. But it’s bullshit. I know it and so do most other people who are willing to see beyond what is the desired state to what can actually happen.

So, for me, it is best to disengage. I never cared about whom people voted for in primaries. Alas, we used to live in a reality based universe, which these days is turned on its head. If I engage, I am likely to offend. So, backing off it is.

I’m fairly certain, although I cannot find the exact text to quote (I think it was in Hollingsworth v. Perry, which was the federal case against Prop 8), that at least one finding involved a right to privacy which the domestic partnerships was violating - in that requiring a specific different type of partnership violated the couple’s right to choose how and when they were public about their sexual orientation.

I would imagine that a separate marriage license only for gay people would fall under the same issue.

This story is getting a little bit of coverage:

Why Science Teachers Are Struggling With Climate Change

Here’s the article in Science:

The first graphic is a bit misleading, I think.

The take-away is not really surprising, though I wonder if there is a bit of over-emphasis arising to lumping all science classes together. For example, as a chemistry teacher, climate change may not really fit in the syllabus for the class. The survey was sent out to both middle school and high school science teachers, and I think the presumption that all science classes should cover the same topic is not well founded.

Anyway, I looked at the supplemental material:

And what I think is more important, societal-wise, than the article’s main emphasis is this:

Racial differences.
Tables S5 and S6 break down the sample of audited names based on the racial composition of the sampled school. The table shows that sampled educators at majority-minority schools were (a) less likely to be confirmed as on the school’s faculty (63% compared to 78% of those teaching at majority white schools), and (b) less likely to be confirmed as an eligible science teacher (50% compared to 68% of those at majority white schools). Combined, these help to account for the much lower response rates found among teachers at majority-minority schools.

The other day, Trump pontificated that he’s got a plan to save $300 billion a year on drug prescription costs. The plan? Total BS, in part because the total spending of the nation on prescription drugs each year is $300 billion.

IF he claimed he was saving $300 billion over 10 years, I might cut him some slack - a 10% savings per year is not inconsiderable. But that’s not what he said. He wanted to cut the spending by $300 billion each year.

Yeah, I saw an article in a magazine for hunting and fishing enthusiasts pointing out that public lands are what make hunting and fishing possible for people without huge personal land holdings.
