I’m bringing the Charles Blow column up here.

Must read

You don’t get a pat on the back for ratcheting down from rabid after exploiting
that very radicalism to your advantage. Unrepentant opportunism belies a
staggering lack of character and caring that can’t simply be vanquished from
memory. You did real harm to this country and many of its citizens, and I will never
— never — forget that.

As I read the transcript and then listened to the audio, the slime factor was
overwhelming.
After a campaign of bashing The Times relentlessly, in the face of the actual
journalists, he tempered his whining with flattery.

He ended the meeting by saying:
“I will say, The Times is, it’s a great, great American jewel. A world jewel. And I
hope we can all get along well.”
I will say proudly and happily that I was not present at this meeting. The very
idea of sitting across the table from a demagogue who preyed on racial, ethnic and
religious hostilities and treating him with decorum and social grace fills me with
disgust, to the point of overflowing. Let me tell you here where I stand on your “I
hope we can all get along” plea: Never.
You are an aberration and abomination who is willing to do and say anything —
no matter whom it aligns you with and whom it hurts — to satisfy your ambitions.

Ribbons of death is an easy way to knock out patrol days - though this year I’m a patrol instructor training new candidates, so I get to ski all the shit…and we take them through the worst shit we can find every weekend so we know they will be able to handle wrecks on the groomers.

Dr. Stein says she is concerned for the integrity of the vote in those states (I presume she is under no illusion she actually won any of them).

Interestingly, if the recounts changed the election results in those states, the money would be refunded to the candidate. Since Dr. Stein did not raise the money as part of her campaign, but as a sort of personal GoFundMe, unless I misunderstand the law she would get to keep the money. (That means there is a grift factor here.)

She always liked to bake turkeys for some reason: When she worked for Digital Equipment Corporation, the company gave all its employees turkeys (well, a coupon for turkey). She would pay people who were single, didn’t cook, &c for their turkeys and put them in her freezer and have turkey for half a year.

She worked in Colorado Springs in the CX-01 division. In DECs slow-mo implosion, she left when they got rid of her department but not any of the work.

My sister did not work in the hardware areas. She planned and coordinated all the big meetings. Many of the foreign meetings were used as employee bonuses. She arranged the locations, agendas, transprtation, etc. Usually there were 3-4 in the US and one international session per year. Once, at the last minute, she flew from Boston to Austraila for just a 3 day stay. Told them she would only go if she traveled 1st class and they went for it. $6,000 round trip. No wonder the companies went belly-up.

My wife did software and firmware quality assurance, device integration, and such. Primarily, her job was to try and make things fail so engineers or technicians could see what went wrong.

Once she wrote a disk drive fragmenter program to see what it would do. She also wrote memory gobbling programs, and wrote an internal chess program (not shipped to customers, for use in-house) - then used it against itself to see if she could overrun system clocks or memory in a computer. She also wrote code to check data integrity. She would run equipment then pull plugs or type stuff in the middle of a program to see if she could derail computers. She would try to mess up stuff with magnetic tapes that didn’t work right.

Essentially, her job was to break stuff.

Weber charcoal kettle turkey is easy, even easier if you don’t stuff it. Every man should be able to burn meat sufficiently to be edible. I smoke BBQ, wood grill, charcoal grill, gas grill. I’m probably best at smoking pork, roasting is easy, but grilling and brisket is where I have trouble.

I can burn it, but I am not sure it would be edible. Actually, we don’t own a bar-b-que: in the winter it is too cold to use and in the summer it is too dry (prairie grass fire is not what I want to be remembered for)

k, I’m in California so I’m not buying the summer fall fire excuse (especially with brick charcoal) and I was born in Manitoba so I’m not buying the too cold excuse. (OK I’ve lived in California long enough I totally buy the too cold excuse, but I have also read about fiberglass blankets on peoples smokers so…) Start learning simple, hotdogs, hot links, burgers.

Rep. Mike McCaul (R-Tex) wants President Obama’s appointees from Homeland Security purged.

huffingtonpost.com

There used to be a time when the big fear of homeland security officials was Soviet moles infiltrating American institutions. Now it appears to be that Democrats may be “burrowing’ into the Donald Trump-led government.

At least, that’s the concern of Rep. Mike McCaul (R-Texas), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, who sent a letter Wednesday to Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson seeking to purge President Barack Obama’s appointees.

“Concerns exist that Department of Homeland Security (DHS) non-career positions might be ‘converted’ to career positions,” McCaul wrote. “Known as ‘burrowing,’ this practice can damage trust with a new Administration and undermine its new priorities.”

According to her fundraising site, she is concerned about the integrity of the vote. She cites both the statisticians that questioned accepting it without a recount, and the fact Wisconsin’s voting machinery in particular is banned in California for vulnerabilities that have not been fixed.

She is doing something that would be awkward for Hillary Clinton to do. If Mrs. Clinton called for a recount, there would be a hue-and-cry of “sour grapes” from the right (regardless of the notion it is Mrs. Clinton’s right to request a recount if she so desires).

If Dr. Stein calls for a recount, Mrs. Clinton is in the clear on that (though Mrs. Clinton probably did not ask her to do it).

So, what happens if there are recounts in those three states, could the recounts be completed before the Electoral College meets Dec. 13? And if by some miracle Hillary gains some EVs, what then? Also, if there is evidence ballots were tampered with, who’s in the position to go after the perpetrators?

167
Anymouse  Nov 24, 2016 • 7:29:13am

More from Dr. Stein’s fundraising site:

Details You Need to Know
In 2004, the Cobb/LaMarche campaign demanded a recount in Ohio. Because of their efforts, an election administrator went to jail. We also exposed the profound problems with DRE machines, which helped launch an election integrity movement. That provoked California to engage in a “top to bottom” review of their voting system, which culminated in the abolition of DRE machines.

The Green Party Platform calls for “publicly-owned, open source voting equipment and deploy it across the nation to ensure high national standards, performance, transparency and accountability; use verifiable paper ballots; and institute mandatory automatic random precinct recounts to ensure a high level of accuracy in election results.”

Election integrity experts have independently identified Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin as states where “statistical anomalies” raised concerns. Our effort to recount votes in those states is not intended to help Hillary Clinton.

These recounts are part of an election integrity movement to attempt to shine a light on just how untrustworthy the U.S. election system is.

According to her fundraising site, she is concerned about the integrity of the vote. She cites both the statisticians that questioned accepting it without a recount, and the fact Wisconsin’s voting machinery in particular is banned in California for vulnerabilities that have not been fixed.

She is doing something that would be awkward for Hillary Clinton to do. If Mrs. Clinton called for a recount, there would be a hue-and-cry of “sour grapes” from the right (regardless of the notion it is Mrs. Clinton’s right to request a recount if she so desires).

If Dr. Stein calls for a recount, Mrs. Clinton is in the clear on that (though Mrs. Clinton probably did not ask her to do it).

Exactly.

Jill Stein knows that she can’t win a recount. But if the goal is to change the election result through those three states, or throw it in doubt (while relieving Hillary and her campaign of that burden) so be it. I won’t let her off the hook for having played spoiler in multiple states, but a recount is sorely needed.

It’s only Jill Stein’s potential association with Putin (specifically the photo with her and Mike Flynn) that I can’t get out of my mind.

We brought home brother and sister kittens three weeks ago and put them in our master bath to keep the dog away. Three weeks in, and the male has made friends with Scout, while the female fell in love with the magazine rack and spends her time in there so far.

They’ll be out and about soon enough - they’ve both ventured downstairs, where Trixie their big sister kitty awaits. That’ll be the big test - when Trixie stops growling at the little ones, all will be well.

These are all questions that came up the last time we went through a recount debacle. Unfortunately, I don’t remember the answers.

I was also out of the country when that happened. As I recall, the tallies were so close that neither side could really move forward until there was a resolution. This time, Trump & Co. have all but taken over. I doubt they’d quit now without a fight.

Issues surrounding the 2004 election recounts:

en.wikipedia.org

The part that pertains to Dr. Stein’s claim:

In Ohio, two minor-party candidates, Michael Badnarik (Libertarian Party) and David Cobb (Green Party) cooperated in requesting a recount.

According to Ohio recount rules, 3% of a county’s votes are tallied by hand, and typically one or more whole precincts are selected and combined to get the 3% sample. The 3% must be randomly selected, and all hand counts are to be performed in public (with observers). After the hand count, the sample is fed into the tabulator. If there is no discrepancy, the remaining ballots can be counted by the machine. Otherwise, a hand recount must be done for the whole county.

The Cobb campaign claimed that the precincts were not randomly selected and the ballots were pre-sorted. They suggested that this indicates that precincts were selected that would match the machine count, in order to prevent a county-wide hand count, i.e. that it was “staged”. Two poll workers were convicted of preselecting ballots for the recounts.[66]

Since she is funding this effort through Nation Builder, I wonder if she gets the E-mail or mail addresses of the donors (I do not understand how these fundraising sites work).

If she does, then she gets a whole bunch of people’s contact information for building a future Green Party database.

I used to be a Green. Now that we have open primaries in California, I could go back to being a Green Party member. But I don’t think party affiliation means shit these days.

So, what happens if there are recounts in those three states, could the recounts be completed before the Electoral College meets Dec. 13? And if by some miracle Hillary gains some EVs, what then? Also, if there is evidence ballots were tampered with, who’s in the position to go after the perpetrators?

Several electors in Washington and Colorado, despite being pledged to cast for Hillary, are indicating that they won’t (but have no consensus alternative). They are trying to force the issue on electors pledged to vote for Trump while forcing the issue on the concept of the electoral college.

The Acton Institute has a “sorry-not sorry” sort of walkback of their position on child labour posted above the original blog post.

Bring Back Child Labor - Work is a Gift Our Kids Can Handle

The abundant prosperity of the modern age has brought many blessings when it comes to child-rearing and child development, offering kids new opportunities for education, play, and personal development. Yet even as we celebrate our civilizational departure from excessive child labor, we ought to be wary of falling into a different sort of lopsided lifestyle.

Alas, as a day-to-day reality, work has largely vanished from modern childhood, with parents constantly stressing over the values of study and practice and “social interaction” even as they insulate their children from any activity that might involve risk, pain, or boredom. As a result, many of our kids are coming far too late to the arena of creative service and all it brings: dignity, meaning, freedom, virtue, creativity, character, and neighbor love.

Operating out of a justified fear of the harsh excesses of “harder times,” we have allowed our cultural attitudes to swing too far in the opposite direction, distorting work as a “necessary obligation of adulthood,” a gift too dangerous for kids. Working from these same distorted attitudes, the Washington Post recently published what it described as a “haunting” photo montage of child laborers from America’s rougher past.

When I brought Scout the cat home, the Humane Society had told me (they give a little 15-minute talk on the care and feeding of cats, whether you need it or not) that she might hide in the carrier even if it was open, stay there for days and need all sorts of time to adjust to her new surroundings.

So I opened the box in the bathroom (recommended enclosed space). She leaped out instantly, exited the room and started exploring the place at a fast trot, round and round and round. It was exhausting just to look at her.

Since she was at her minimum healthy weight at that time (the fiends at the Humane Society feed their cats an exclusive diet of high-quality cat kibble, which she apparently didn’t much like, so there was not a bit of fat on her), she found several crannies that I had to block off — one I had to rescue her from — and managed to get into a 4-inch space at the top of the closet (9-foot ceiling). That’s why I named her Scout.

Sean Hannity Tuesday:

On his radio show on Tuesday, Hannity bashed several major media outlets.

“Maybe Donald Trump should rethink how he deals with media,” he said. “Why should CNN have a seat in the White House press room? Why should NBC have a seat there? Why should The New York Times have a seat there, or Politico? They all think they’re journalists, they’re all full of crap, and they’ve all been exposed.”

The Fox host later claimed that journalists conspired with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton to negatively cover Trump.

“Until members of the media come clean about colluding with the Clinton campaign and admit that they knowingly broke every ethical standard they are supposed to uphold, they should not have the privilege, they should not have the responsibility of covering the president on behalf of you, the American people,” he said.

I can’t imagine any scenario where enough EVs shift to give Hillary the win that doesn’t result in an eruption of anger, court cases, and claims that the election was “stolen.” Even if you march a line of men into a courtroom where they confess to having fixed the machines to give Trump the win, it will be assumed that Hillary had her shadowy cabal “fix” the election results to give her the win in a belated fashion.

There is the romantic notion of kids feeding the chickens or watering the cattle before walking a few miles down the dirt road to catch the school bus. Which has nothing to do with the realities of child labor.

Nothing romantic at all about farm work. My late father’s family sharecropped in Oklahoma when he was growing up. It was hard, hard work. Work before school, work after school, work all summer long. When he graduated high school, he left and went to California and worked in a cannery. He ended up signing up to go to Korea before he got drafted and never went back to live in Oklahoma or to farming. He talked very little about either Korea or farming, but one thing I do remember him saying was that getting shot at up at the DMZ was easier than working on the farm. That blew my mind.

Red Raider Outfitter Refuses to Sell a Texas Tech-Baylor Gameday Shirt

Lubbock’s popular Texas Tech retailer Red Raider Outfitter issued a powerful statement on why they’re bucking the trend and not producing a t-shirt ahead of Friday’s Texas Tech-Baylor game.
The retailer pointed to “Baylor’s mismanagement” and “shockingly poor handling” of reported sexual assaults which made national headlines in May. The scandal led to the ousting of head coach Art Briles, but continues to haunt the school. In October, it was revealed that Briles heard about an alleged gang rape, but failed to alert the proper authorities.
Red Raider Outfitter explained their decision on Facebook as both a moral stance and to honor the requests of Texas Tech fans:
“Red Raider Outfitter stands for honesty, integrity, and compassion. In no way, can we support the shockingly poor handling of the sexual assaults at Baylor,” reads the statement. “Red Raider Outfitter stands with the victims and with those who are outraged by Baylor’s mismanagement. You, the fans, have spoken and requested that we not allow the Double T to be printed alongside any Baylor logo.”
You can read their full statement below:

It may not surprise anyone here to learn that Art Briles, the Baylor coach who was fired for his role in the rape scandal, is a very public Bible thumper who once authored a book called Beating Goliath: My Story of Football and Faith.

Also canned were Baylor President Kenn Starr (of Clinton-Lewinsky fame) and AD Ian McCaw.

And as a result, I got sucked in like heroin and stayed up until 5am arguing with a Russian-loving troll who kept telling me that Bosnian Muslims are Islamists while praising Muammar Gaddafi and Iran and blaming liberals for the wrong in the world. I laughed so hard when he claimed gay people are evil and that he is pro-life, and couldn’t grasp the fact that Islamists also share the same myopic views as him.

And as a result, I got sucked in like heroin and stayed up until 5am arguing with a Russian-loving troll who kept telling me that Bosnian Muslims are Islamists while praising Muammar Gaddafi and Iran and blaming liberals for the wrong in the world. I laughed so hard when he claimed gay people are evil and that he is pro-life, and couldn’t grasp the fact that Islamists also share the same myopic views as him.

Buried in the verbiage on her Recount Donation page:

As she was a candidate, if she puts up the bond and files the paperwork for a recount by the deadline in each state, they will hold a recount.

Pretty much the only way a recount would not be held is if she didn’t file for one by the deadline in each state (for Wisconsin, that is tomorrow close-of-business).

If she doesn’t file for a recount, she still keeps all of that money raised.

LOL they do look like potatoes if you don’t have a relative object to compare their size. A potato would not fit all the way across a standard size baking rack.

If she doesn’t file for a recount, that information would be very easy to obtain from the state board of elections, followed by tarring-and-feathering of Dr. Stein.

Trump transition team member Anthony Scaramucci said in an interview with the BBC that in an effort to show Trump supports LGBT people, Elton John would play. John said he wouldn’t.

“I’m not a Republican in a million years,” John said when Trump used his song “Tiny Dancer” for a campaign rally, “why not ask Ted f*cking Nugent?”

Vince Neil, vocalist for heavy metal band Mötley Crüe also dropped out of Trump’s inaugural, after previously being announced he would play. The Rolling Stones also refused. Trump frequently used The Stone’s song “You Can’t Always Get What You Want,” despite repeated requests for him to stop.

Thanksgiving festivities today has turned into repetitive small meals instead of a large single meal. Foods so far today:
Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie - (Store-bought unbaked, wasn’t too bad)
other breakfast (banana, bacon, toast, etc. in some form - with coffee)
Spanikopita
Spaghetti Squash Carbonera Casserole
Sparkling Riesling
Smoked Turkey Breast
Sweet Potato Pie

Been shuffling stuff in and out of the oven all day.

Happy Thanksgiving Day, lizards!

How about that Lions game, and better yet how about Aretha singing her lungs out and her brilliant piano playing on her “Bridge Over Troubled Waters” style version of the national anthem? My wife said “That was a protest song!” And kudos to the organist accompanying her. (I see the “It’s trad dad” types didn’t care for it. Whatevs.)

Just took the fresh from the farm turkey off the grill and poured the first Guinness of the day. All the best, friends!
