So as you guys know, I’ve been doing some volunteering. I had a great conversation with a lady today about all that’s going on. We talked a little about how amazing it was all the Republicans were chickening out of their townhalls. All the people I talked to who were at first reluctant to sign the ballot petition signed on immediately when I told them I was working on behalf of a dem.

Right now, one is halfway under the table, the other is supervising.
Both are equally not very good at this particular job…when they somehow manage to actually catch a mouse, 9 times out of 10 the rodent gets away after a long and hard-fought chase/battle.
The one successful time out of ten, the mouse carcass ends up in the bed, in my shoes, or just in the middle of the floor waiting to be stepped upon with a bare foot in the middle of the night…

Choking…. that’s gonna come back and haunt them (or it should).

Repealing environmental protections. Rolling back Obama era waterway protections so that coal companies can pollute the water. Yeah, when future generations are literally choking on hazmat wastes dumped by companies enabled by the GOP repeal of environmental protections, I’ll remember who did the choking.

It wasn’t Obama. It was Ryan and the rest of the craven GOP.

Choke on that Ryan. That’s going to be your legacy.

The other day, there were Democrats in Congress who were reported as mulling holding the debt ceiling hostage over the Trump/Russia investigations. I say they do so, but publicly remind the nation that Trump said that he’d “renegotiate” America’s debts with foreign debt holders and get them to “take a little less.” Publicly call him on his bluff and say if he’s the master businessman that he claims to be, then there is no danger to refusing to raise the debt ceiling.

My parents’ cats aren’t allowed in the house, so the rodent corpses are usually deposited at the entryway to the garage or in the basement window wells. One cat is quite good at doing the hunting, the other … yeeeeah, not so much. So he supervises. I don’t remember if you guys have seen them, but my parents’ cats are enormous felines, positively yuuuuge. Beautiful animals, but for barn cats, I’ve never seen them grow so big.

Meh. Way too much credit is being given here. The Joe Rogan podcast was noticed and written about on plenty of websites before this. Nobody cared until Milo got asked to do the keynote at CPAC. And the worst part hasn’t even been given much coverage - he says he witnessed the rapes of “very young boys” and did nothing to report it.

This story is just not being reported accurately at all. Frustrating.

As noted downstairs, this is what would be known under a Democrat as a cover-up. After all, if there were truly nothing to these reports (as we were told repeatedly under Obama) then there would be no need for push-back. They would be totally transparent, they would not be interfering in the investigations, and they would be working with investigators rather than trying to block them.

My cats aren’t allowed outside because there are too many varieties of wildlife that see them as a potential meal. They’ll be four years old end of April/beginning of May and the only only time they’ve been outdoors is when they were born out in the shop. Their eyes were still closed when their stray cat mother disappeared, so the only thing they know of the outdoors is what they see through the windows.

Hey, it’s me, shy, quiet lurker and grateful reader of LGF. Someone here used to post tweets from a woman who had extensively researched the rise of facism and sucessful takeovers in countries. I think she is an author and professor. After the election, she tweeted the steps she anticipated Trump & friends would take and predicted a takeover very quickly - 6 months IIRC - if not stopped.

My parents’ cats were rescues from a local shelter; my sister and I picked them out when we still lived at home. They have been through many trials and travails outdoors and are quite comfortable there. My dad claims to hate them, but he trudged through the muck of a thunderstorm to rescue the orange one when it went astray late one night, so he’s not as cold-hearted as he would like to appear.

Mancini said officials held and questioned Ali Jr. for nearly two hours, repeatedly asking him, “Where did you get your name from?” and “Are you Muslim?”

When Ali Jr. responded that yes, he is a Muslim, the officers kept questioning him about his religion and where he was born. Ali Jr. was born in Philadelphia in 1972 and holds a U.S. passport.

Famous and loved Australian children’s author, Mem Fox, has received a written apology from US, after being detained at LAX for 2 hours, wrongly accused of having an incorrect visa.

Has previously visited the US 116 times without incident - abc.net.au

She said the border agents appeared to have been given “turbocharged power” by an executive order signed by President Donald Trump to “humiliate and insult” a room full of people they detained to check visas.

….”I have never in my life been spoken to with such insolence, treated with such disdain, with so many insults and with so much gratuitous impoliteness,” Fox said. “I felt like I had been physically assaulted which is why, when I got to my hotel room, I completely collapsed and sobbed like a baby, and I’m 70 years old.”

….She said the treatment of others in the airport holding room, including Iranians, Taiwanese and a Scandinavian parent with a small child, was just as poor, and all appeared to eventually have been released.

“I thought: ‘How can human beings treat other vulnerable human beings in this fashion, in public, in full view of everybody?’

Most people would NOT have done what he did and he IS a hero. I like to think I would have done the right thing and said something to stand up for those engineers. And I love the budding friendship between these two guys too.

Well, he said he was doing what others “should have done” (second to last paragraph) not what they “would have done”

“Hero” is a word Grillot shied away from when recalling his part in the drama. “I was just doing what anyone should have done,” he said.

No doubt. They don’t want to hear that but the fact is they did get conned. They did fall for lies. And they’ll do it again and the way to prevent that from happening again isn’t infantizing them. I think many white liberals have this romantic vision of the working class. Perhaps because so many of our families came from families like that. I don’t think every or even most WWC is a bigoted person but I do think there are resentments unique to that group that the right has pounced on from Nixon to Trump and many white liberals simply can’t see it.

Mrs. Fish, while introverted, is much less introverted than I am; she enjoys going out and being social, to a point. I can’t abide crowds or intense social interaction at all. Hence why meeting her family (now up to 26 grandchildren, 6 siblings) was overwhelming for this son of a 2-child, 3-cousin family.

In the abstract, it is easy to say “liberals hate America” or some such.

It’s tough when you are right there for them to tell you that to your face, when your neighbours see their rhetoric does not match their experience.

No one here thinks I “hate America.” Atheist, sister in a same-sex marriage, Democrat, liberal, &c. Everyone around me knows all that.

Also disabled military, pay my taxes and bills, keep my lawn mowed, &c.

That opens up a crack into which you can insert a wedge. (All politics is local.) If a political discussion comes up, “well, what do you think of all the Republican senators and representatives avoiding their constituents, while all the Democratic ones are welcoming them?”

Of course. I’m not saying they should be ignored or mocked but let me be blunt here, I have seen how ugly these types can be to someone not like them. I’m talking about the communities that go bezerk when a Muslim community wants to build a mosque. People who go ballistic over hearing accented English. They’re out there and they’ve been easily manipulated and we’re told to sympathize with them in a way they are NEVER EVER told to attempt to understand us. They’er never told to understand why a liberal would worry about his gay friend or family having their marriage invalidated, Hispanic friends having their family separated over immigration, or Muslim friends beign scapegoated as terrorists. I have no problem with listening to working class concerns and a lot of them are understandable concerns. We do need to do somethign about places where jobs have been lost. But at the same time, they need to be told to try to attempt to understand us and no one is telling them that.

A lot of them still aren’t over how the Civil War ended- why else wave a Rebel flag and have so many in your number who insist the CSA was right but these are the same folks who tell African-Americans to get over slavery and Jim Crow, the same people who tell Japanese-Americans to shut up about internment, etc. I am fine with listening to the concerns of the WWC but I want someone in punditry to tell these people that they need to be aware of other people’s concerns too and to be blunt a lot of people in the WWC hate hearing that. They hate being told to consider other people who look different from them. And that frankly is why they’ve gone Republican over the years. It’s not because the Dems abandoned them, it’s because resentment sells. And yes I’ll be the first to admit that we could have done a better job helping industrial areas transition post outsourcing too but how the hell were we going to do it when you had Reagan appealing to these people telling them about the horrors of big government and them eating it up.

Dinner tonight is tequila-lime marinated chicken thighs, baked in the oven and served with a corn and black bean salad that I will make up as I go along.

Dinner at casa klys. I’ve been on a Mexican fusion kick.

Yum. I just had a leftover meatloaf sandwich but lunch was good, a schnizel sandwich with fries and wheat beer at my favorite German place.

Everyone wants to understand the white working classes stresses and anxieties, fine. They should have to understand the anxieties and worries of other groups and no one wants to say that because pundits are too busy making them out to be victims and children.

It isn’t about words, it’s about experiences. In our culture we are far, far removed from natural pressures. We control our environments in our homes. We shop for food in grocery stores. Our water is clean and comes in hot and cold. Even those who hunt - usually from a blind sitting near a provided food station - do so on a few weekends a year and think they have a clue. As a population we are blissfully ignorant and quite happy that way. We think we’re in control and have all the answers.

Little Cottonwood Canyon in Utah, today. The road up the canyon closed yesterday due to several natural avalanches, one which buried three cars in one of Snowbird’s parking lots. Everyone who was up there yesterday had to “interlodge” which is basically “you have to stay and ski the best powder of your life tomorrow.” It’s a kind of holy grail in the skiing world.

The road didn’t open until this afternoon, so it was full-on country club powder skiing today up Little Cottonwood Canyon.

From that HuffPo article up the thread about an easy seat the Democrats will lose due to a court ruling:

Judge Anne Covey held that Ramirez did not meet the requirements for maintaining a domicile in the district. The court was presented with evidence of low water and energy usage for the apartment in which the candidate claimed to be living. Ramirez acknowledged that he spent multiple days of the week with his daughter at a suburban house and with his girlfriend at her home outside the district.

“I believe the court got it wrong,” Ramirez’s lawyer, Adam Bonin, told The Huffington Post.

“I can’t believe this,” said Ramirez, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. “This is a political decision. This is not a legal decision.”

The case was initiated by the local Republican Party and joined by two Democrats, as necessary under state law.

Covey’s decision creates a real possibility that Democrats could lose a seat they should otherwise win easily. It comes amid a string of bad news for Pennsylvania Democrats. Not only did they lose ground in the state legislature in 2016 and fail to defeat U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey (R-Pa.), but a number of their elected officials have recently faced corruption convictions or allegations.

Anyway, Harlan Ellison was inspired by it to write this short story:

E is for ELEVATOR PEOPLE
They never speak, and they cannot meet your gaze. There are five hundred buildings in the United States whose elevators go deeper than the basement. When you have pressed the basement button and reached the bottom, you must press the basement button twice more. The elevator doors will close and you will hear the sound of special relays being thrown, and the elevator will descend. Into the caverns. Chance has not looked favorably on occasional voyagers in those five hundred cages. They have pressed the wrong button, too many times. They have been seized by those who shuffle through the caverns, and they have been … treated. Now they ride the cages. They never speak, and they cannot meet your gaze. They stare up at the numbers as they light and then go off, riding up and down even after night has fallen. Their clothes are clean. There is a special dry cleaner who does the work. Once you saw one of them, and her eyes were filled with screams.

All summer I was gone to Canada and Michigan. In December I was in California. My energy use was pretty close to zero (my water usage in December skyrocketed because of a broken pipe, but was zero in the summer).

Does that mean I am not a resident? I own one house (here), and pay taxes on it. All my bills come here. My car is registered and insured here. By every metric, this is my home (regardless of how much time I spend in it).

The Democratic Party is considering what to do. The deadline to remove him from the ballot is fast approaching. They could appeal, but if they lose, then they have no candidate.

They could remove him, but then they have to run a new candidate with virtually no time to campaign.

Well it’s a strongly Democratic seat. I’m sure if they got a candidate on there, they’d win.

Dems signed on because Penna. law requires that.

Philadelphia requirements:
philadelphiavotes.com

Let’s use an argumentum ad absurdum.

I am super rich, and I own six houses. I live in each house for two months. One of those is still my permanent residence, even though I am not in it ten months a year.

Another example: YOLO, I’m spending my grandkids’ inheritance with my motor home and a National Park Pass. I am only home the three months of the winter, the rest of the time I am on the Interstate or in a national park. Is my home of record a national park, an Interstate, or the place where my motor home is registered, where I’m registered to vote, where I pay taxes on my house (and maybe my motor home), &c.

Military personnel deal with this on a regular basis. When I enlisted in Michigan, I was never stationed there. My home-of-record was still Michigan: It was listed in my personnel file, I paid my state income tax there, I still had a driver’s license from there, &c. Just because I spent almost all of my first enlistment in Virginia Beach did not revoke my residency in my home town.

Anymouse  Feb 24, 2017 • 8:48:27pm

Another example: I use almost no water from the city, because I buy Culligan water.

That was the crux of the court’s decision, that he did not use enough water and electricity to establish residency.

What amount of water and electricity must I use to be a resident? Does that mean an Old Order Amish person in Penna. or in Philadelphia is not a resident, simply because the person does not use electricity at all?

re: #239 Anymouse

That made me think of a couple of years when I would go to work during the day, come home, change clothes, get the dog, and spend most nights at my boyfriend’s house. Go home in the morning, get ready for work, hug the dog and go to work. Weekends I was most often at his place or off during surveys for clients. Where did I live? At my home, where all my stuff was, where I got my mail, where my dog was when not with me, etc. Sounds much like his situation. What determines where home is if not that stuff?

That was exactly his claim in court: He spent a lot of time at his girlfriend’s house in the suburbs.
