Like Shostakovitch, he wanted to survive and, perhaps, considered himself to be fighting for a “true” Soviet Union. Hence the battles had to be chosen carefully. Yevgeny Yevtushenko came later, perhaps, but the threat to an artist was still very real.

Oh Christ, not this Asshole again. Trump is a racist, sexist deplorable. That fact is a simple matter of public record.

Therefore either:

1) Trump voters voted for Trump because Trump is a racist, sexist deplorable.

2) Trump voters didn’t care that Trump is a racist, sexist deplorable and voted for him anyway.

Both possibilities mean that Trump voters are racist, sexist deplorables.

Since Bernie is not a Democrat he can get away with saying “it was that the Democratic Party lost the election.”

Bernie will never be a part of the loss. He will forever be the candidate that was screwed over and could have won. It is etched in his and his followers brains now. No other discussion or argument is allowed. It is an untouchable (unproven) fact.

It’s bible. Like the whole story of Joseph and Mary and the virgin birth. Lots of questions but you must accept the truth if you are in the Church of St. Bernard. It is written.

Have you ever seen that in real life? The first time I came across a city possum was in Madison one night when I was out skateboarding. My dog sniffed it out playing dead… it turned and gave me the ‘hiss’. The dog(a pretty big Elkhound/Akita mix) and I ran like hell.

When I lived in Austin in the early 1990s, I remember getting up early one morning to go into work, and as I was heading out, I saw a BIG possum trundling home after hitting a line of Dumpsters behind a group of restaurants. That furry guy was huge. He was living the high life.

I am really turning into a fan of her great voice. I was watching a bunch of her work with the Postmodern Jukebox folks. She was rattling my bones with some of her tones.

And I have to say, there are some other great voices working with PMJ too.

This is the tune with PMJ that did the bone rattling. And such a great take on the song.

State AGs could go after them under state laws, though it’s more common for DOJ or SEC to go after insider trading on federal law violations. At least some of those transactions were made via the NYSE. That could open door for AG Schneiderman to go after Price if DOJ doesn’t.

We’ve seen Schneiderman step up in fighting Trump on the legal front.

yahoo.com centristproject.org

So, I have a friend that’s somehow involved with The Centrist Project, and he has been plugging it with so much pride, and I have many friends that are supportive of his efforts on FB. But I can’t seem to grasp this group. And I’m wondering if I’m just too damn partisan to be open-minded enough to grasp what they are trying to accomplish… LGF has many viewpoints, many differing from my own that I gain insight from reading, so I’m wondering, am I missing something here?

Isn’t this group simply pushing compromise for compromise sake? And just another kind of false equivalency?

“As our country has regressed over the past two decades into this combative, polarized environment, the structure of the government is just not functioning as it needs to and we have incredible problems to solve as a society,” Merrill said in an interview. “I’m really in it for the long run. I don’t really care who solves the problem. I just want our country to have more effective governance.”

He doesn’t care whose ideas drive the narrative as long as government seems to function?

…”The Centrist Project’s organizing principles are vague…”

Yeah.

“The group wants candidates to seek cooperation rather than conflict, to represent people before political parties or special interests, and to be motivated by public service rather than self-interest.”

The only lofty goal I see, and probably impossible to actually accomplish.

“The messy business of hammering out a more precise agenda or platform will come down the road if the Centrist Project has electoral success. At the moment, it is trying simply to achieve liftoff.”

Why would anyone support candidates without agreed upon issues?

Pat Caddell: “I’m very impressed with the people here,” he said. “That guy from Maine, he is going to be a star.”“ Token FoxNews “Democrat” Pat Caddell is involved?!

Doesn’t he say the same thing about Glenn Beck.

…Then there is Casas from Maine: “He ran on a message of being “fiscally conservative and socially liberal”“

That old BS stance: I understand the motivation for equality, but can’t we profit from it?

Also: “”I’ve always been an independent,” he said. “Maine’s got a pretty stubborn, independent streak. … We look to our neighbors to help out. We try to help out our neighbors. We try to foster a good community atmosphere. But when that storm sets in, you may be on your own for the next five days. And you gotta have a woodpile. You gotta have a food store. You gotta be able to start a fire. You gotta be independent. Because you never know when it’s coming.”“

Isn’t his is simply a thinly veiled libertarian, (doomsday)prepper mindset?

I like the guy, but this is some wishywashy bullshit.

Or am I just too hyperpartisan and part of the problem this group is out to remedy?

I’m leery of trying too hard to get them back. If we peeled off 1% nation wide, we’d have won. Hell, if we’d peeled off less than 1% in 3 states, we’d have won.

But for me, the biggest thing is that I simply cannot understand how anyone could believe a word he says. He is an absolutely transparent con man, and his campaign speeches were chock full of obvious bullshit. I have no idea how to appeal to someone so gullible that they looked at him and thought, “Yeah, lets give him a chance!”

re: #105 Major Tom

Isn’t this group simply pushing compromise for compromise sake? And just another kind of false equivalency?

Possibly. Probably.

When it comes to life, all of us have (if we’ve lived long enough) had those moments where we realize we were wrong.

Meaning: took the incorrect turn, made the bad choice, believed something which wasn’t true.

Well, at least most of us older people will admit that. There are those, like Trump, who show the inability to have an epiphany.

Anyway, I propose groups of people likewise can just plain be wrong.

Now, can a group of people go through the same path of self-awareness and modification that an individual can do?

Yes, I think so, but it may take some traumatic events to precipitate such change.

Many of our political leaders don’t like discussing these things, though.

UW professor: The information war is real, and we’re losing it

A University of Washington professor started studying social networks to help people respond to disasters. But she got dragged down a rabbit hole of twitter-boosted conspiracy theories, and ended up mapping our political moment.

[snip]

Starbird argues in a new paper, set to be presented at a computational social-science conference in May, that these “strange clusters” of wild conspiracy talk, when mapped, point to an emerging alternative media ecosystem on the web of surprising power and reach.

It features sites such as infowars.com, hosted by informal President Donald Trump adviser Alex Jones, which has pushed a range of conspiracies, including that the Sandy Hook school shooting was a staged fake.

But, am I wrong that he’s an absolutely transparent con man? Seriously, I know that 46 percent of voters liked him well enough to vote for him, and I’m not inclined to say out of hand that 46% of voters are really, breathtakingly stupid, but I’m not sure how else this happened.

Oh, sure - Hillary was a flawed candidate. Okay, but it’s not like she was slinging complete, whole-cloth bullshit, or was fighting fraud lawsuits over an obvious con game, or got caught on tape bragging about how she could get away with sexual assault or dropping in on naked teens in a dressing room at a pageant he owned.

This is why I keep coming back to the only explanation being that 46% of the electorate really are just that stupid. Or if not stupid, then racist, homophobic, Islamophobic, and misogynist.

re: #105 Major Tom

Compromise is how you govern a country as diverse as this one. But it’s useless if you don’t understand the history of how we got here.

Compared to 30 years ago, clearly, the parties are more polarized. But how did that come about? It seems to me that Democrats did not elect ever more progressive folks. We lost races in swing districts, losing more conservative and centrist Dems. But they lost in the General.

Republicans lost their more Liberal and centrist voices in the PRIMARIES, when they were defeated by more conservative candidates who then lost in the General. And even solidly conservative folks got primaried by the crazies and lost, then a lot of the crazies won in the General in red districts.

Result? Democrats are more liberal on average because the less liberal ones are gone, but the rest of the caucus didn’t move leftward. Republicans are MUCH more conservative because they both shed their liberal members AND replaced even solid conservatives with EVEN MORE conservative folks.

Democrats have long valued compromise, because we value governing effectively. Republicans have increasingly disdained compromise, because they value RULING.

I’m leery of trying too hard to get them back. If we peeled off 1% nation wide, we’d have won. Hell, if we’d peeled off less than 1% in 3 states, we’d have won.

But for me, the biggest thing is that I simply cannot understand how anyone could believe a word he says. He is an absolutely transparent con man, and his campaign speeches were chock full of obvious bullshit. I have no idea how to appeal to someone so gullible that they looked at him and thought, “Yeah, lets give him a chance!”

Many people are really not plugged in; they aren’t listening to the news carefully; their only exposure may have been attending a speech or watching one provided free of charge by our helpful media. I hate to be a broken record but I listened to part of one during the primaries and could understand the attraction his words would have to those who were struggling — there was nothing racist about these particular words but rather the same type of appeal that Bernie had to this group. Obviously there were other speeches that appealed to the darkest instincts of potential voters.

Again, we don’t have an answer to those who want the old jobs that are never returning. When I was much younger, many professionals were contemptuous of factory workers who lost their jobs to offshoring. Now many of us professionals are facing the same fate. The party that can figure out what to do in a world where the deadly duo of technology and globalization are eliminating well-paid jobs will be the party that ultimately triumphs, assuming we survive this interlude with Trump..

So, I have a friend that’s somehow involved with The Centrist Project, and he has been plugging it with so much pride, and I have many friends that are supportive of his efforts on FB. But I can’t seem to grasp this group. And I’m wondering if I’m just too damn partisan to be open-minded enough to grasp what they are trying to accomplish… LGF has many viewpoints, many differing from my own that I gain insight from reading, so I’m wondering, am I missing something here?

… …

Or am I just too hyperpartisan and part of the problem this group is out to remedy?

They seem confused. I guess they are trying to pull the middle together from both current parties. And it used to be that way because both parties looked to the middle as that was the numbers. So it is not the Democratic and Republican parties historically as much as the people of this country being led to finding the fringes and one party going to that extreme and the other left fighting it and looking like partisans because of the gaps created.

I guess over the last 30 years (since St. Reagan) politics was turned into sport by the media and the parties (in coordination?) and with sports you get us versus them and then you sell it, feed it, push it. Go team…the other team sucks.

I’d mark it down as naive at this time. There is some worth in the endeavor though but a lot would have to change. It took some time to get here. It’s going to take some time to get back it we ever return.

Will it lead to another party? Do we really need another party?

Right, or the ‘you want Italian for dinner, they suggest tire rims and anthrax’ analogy of John Cole.

The thing is, 30 years ago, the parties overlapped, and though there were more extreme members on both sides, the vast majority of folks in both parties believed in the same things, but differed in the degree to which they wanted them applied.

For example, in that era, Democrats and Republicans both believed in the Free Market, but realized that absent some regulation, the market could tear itself to pieces, and could encourage exploitation of workers, consumers, and the environment. Dems wanted more regulation, Republicans wanted less.

Now? Dems still want more regulation. Increasingly, Republicans want NONE.

Another? Both parties used to believe in progressive taxation. Democrats more, Republicans less. Now? Dems still believe in progressive taxation, but Republicans keep looking for ways to make it more REgressive.

So, even though the Dems haven’t really gone off the left end of the scale, because the Republicans went off the right end, there’s no middle to form consensus anymore.

The one hope out of the AHCA failure is noting that about 30 or so GOPers were so afraid of their constituents losing insurance that they opposed it from the LEFT!

“Avant Gardener”

I sleep in late
Another day
Oh what a wonder
Oh what a waste.
It’s a Monday
It’s so mundane
What exciting things
Will happen today?
The yard is full of hard rubbish it’s a mess and
I guess the neighbors must think we run a meth lab
We should amend that
I pull the sheets back
It’s 40 degrees
And i feel like I’m dying.
Life’s getting hard in here
So i do some gardening
Anything to take my mind away from where it’s supposed to be.
The nice lady next door talks of green beds
And all the nice things that she wants to plant in them
I wanna grow tomatoes on the front steps.
Sunflowers, bean sprouts, sweet corn and radishes.
I feel pro-active
I pull out weeds
All of a sudden
I’m having trouble breathing in.
I’m having trouble breathing in.
I’m having trouble breathing in.
I’m having trouble breathing in.

My hands are shaky
My knees are weak
I can’t seem to stand
On my own two feet
I’m breathing but I’m wheezing
Feel like I’m emphysemin’
My throat feels like a funnel
Filled with weet bix and kerosene and
Oh no, next thing i know
They call up triple o
I’d rather die than owe the hospital
Till I get old
I get adrenalin
Straight to the heart
I feel like Uma Thurman
Post-overdosing kick start
Reminds me of the time
When i was really sick and i
Had too much psuedoefedryn and i
Couldn’t sleep at night
Halfway down high street, Andy looks ambivalent
He’s probably wondering what i’m doing getting in an ambulance
The paramedic thinks I’m clever cos i play guitar
I think she’s clever cos she stops people dying
Anaphylactic and super hypocondriactic
Should’ve stayed in bed today
I much prefer the mundane.
I take a hit from
An asthma puffer
I do it wrong
I was never good at smoking bongs.
I’m not that good at breathing in.
I’m not that good at breathing in.
I’m not that good at breathing in.

72 million? Since most of the people who have arrived in the last 50 years would still be alive, this would mean that about a fifth of the population would be immigrants. One advantage of appealing to RWNJs is that you can just pull facts and numbers out of your————endless supply of misinformation.

coulter and her fellow bomb-throwers may be including children and grandchildren of immigrants who were added since the immigrants arrived. If we are going to include descendents of immigrants, the number should be well over 300 million, ie most of the population.

But, of course, the bottom line is: So what? We seem to be chugging along pretty well with our immigrants/kids of immigrants.

And if the grandchild of immigrants is an immigrant still, what does that make me? One side has immigrant grandparents, the other has been kicking around since the very early 1620s. Oh. I pass the pasty white skin test. Guess I’m A-OK.

When I was a kid Princess Diana came to ski our local mountain (Vail) and I actually spotted her getting off the lift a couple of times. She had security, to be sure (a handful of guards skiing in front and behind her), but not a fleet of snowmobiles behind her.

If it was a kiss on the forehead, what did it last 10 seconds?

And she went on about how outraged she was for 4 minutes.

She needs to know there are other definitions of ugly. She may be hitting on a few of them.

Hip hop and electronic music would never be where it is if it wasn’t for this man. RIP tomodachi

There’s entire genres of EDM in Europe in the 90s that have been powered by the sound of the kick drum in 808/909s alone. Obvious examples are the 909 kick drum as a root note in Gabber tracks, and the use of the 808 kick as a musical bass element of early Jungle.

909 kick in Gabber: (Warning: loud)

Johnny Violent - Imploding Head

808 kick in early Jungle: (Warning: also loud, especially when the 808 kicks in at 1:11)
