The America who elected Trump, are creationists:

The politics of teaching evolution in Texas comes down to one word

The committee has now softened the language that the board has proposed restoring, asking that instead of “evaluating,” students should “identify” the scientific explanation of the origin of DNA and compare and contrast cell complexities.

It’s all about the likes of the DiscoTute plying wordsmithing in their attempt to support the creationists.

My prediction is that everyone on the left will get really jazzed by the early returns, then feel growing angst as more conservative precincts report and then eventually feel either vindicated or not.

Fulton County’s early vote is now in, with Ossoff at 60%. There are 210 precincts in GA-6. Ossoff lost the early vote in 3 and has less than half the vote in about 20.

When gerrymandering fails, it fails hard. It usually involves putting most of “your” districts just beyond where you think the other side can reach them. If they do reach them, you’re often worse off than if you’d played fair.

With all early votes in, it’s Ossoff 31,132, All Others combined 19,305.

re: #45 GlutenFreeJesus

Wouldn’t it be ironic if the “redistricting” ended up hurting republican turnout.

Gerrymandering works on the idea of taking an overwhelmingly supportive district, and redrawing the lines so that some of those people wind up in other districts to just tip the vote the other way in those districts.

Even in my three-district state, the districts are gerrymandered. (My overwhelmingly conservative district was redrawn to put Republican voters into NE-1 and NE-2, because a Democrat took NE-2 for the House and Obama won the district in 2008).

Gerrymanders are a disaster for the gerrymandering party when there is much higher than usual turnout (you can lose the district you borrowed voters from to tilt other districts).

I actually thought it was okay, aside from the complete cherry-picking of data (which was ironic, considering that the characters went to considerable lengths to point out cherry-picking they saw in the pro-AGW camp).

Crichton’s book is just an excuse for Republican climate change denial.

Climate change denial became a Republican party plank the old-fashioned way — bought and paid for by the fossil fuel industry.

Since then it has been incorporated into the dogma of the Republican Cargo Cult.

Driving through Illinois going between fish country and the fishbowl, there are two houses across the street from each other in a little rural town that both have Confederate battle flags hanging from the front porch. One of them has it hanging beside the United States Flag, which seems more than a little confusing.

No, Steve King has gotten loads of attention for his explicit racism. And he’s gotten no condemnation from the GOP for his blatant racism which says it all.

I liked Tang as a kid in the Sixties. I haven’t seen it around for a while though.

It used to be the drink of choice on my fundamentalist-Christian-Boy-Scout-clone camping trips back in the day. Easy to transport, easy to make, tasty enough for kids who are just happy to have some sugar.

re: #97 thedopefishlives

Driving through Illinois going between fish country and the fishbowl, there are two houses across the street from each other in a little rural town that both have Confederate battle flags hanging from the front porch. One of them has it hanging beside the United States Flag, which seems more than a little confusing.

Trump makes rare effort to sell his ‘America first’ agenda outside Washington

…Helen Powell, 67, took a bus to down the street to try to catch a glimpse of Trump and view the spectacle of protesters gathered at the site of the president’s speech.

She named “jobs” as the reason she voted for Trump after previously casting a ballot for Barack Obama.

“And he’s got God in his life,” she added. “Hillary Clinton wasn’t going to help us at all.”

She added, “She was going to get rid of all Christians, and she was going to bring in more Muslims.”

I would say WTF!!!11!TYTYBBQ@! But then I saw this,

Across the street, Dawn Wrath, who didn’t vote for Trump, walked over to the crowd with her daughter after taking the day off from work.

Wrath, 41, said she has no problem with the president’s jobs message, “if it’s true.” But she said that isn’t the reason Wisconsinites voted for him.

“I think it’s mainly racism,” she added.

Yep.

Ossoff has slipped a bit against Karen Handel (the wingnut fundamentalist that the Susan G Komen foundation put in charge who cut off funding from them to Planned Parenthood).

Right now the count appears to be Ossoff 55.62%, Handel 16.1%, and the others trailing in single digits or fractions of one percent.

I liked Tang as a kid in the Sixties. I haven’t seen it around for a while though.

Speaking of Tang, there’s a fucking Trump connection there too:

Tang was produced by General Foods (and still is by GF’s successor company, Kraft Heinz).

General Foods began life as the Postum Cereal Company, started by C.W. Post in 1895 as an early competitor to Kellogg’s (in fact, Post apparently got his inspiration after staying at the Kellogg’s Battle Creek Sanitorium); when Post commited suicide in 1914, his daughter Marjorie Merriweather Post ran the company until the company went public in 1922.

Then, the kicker:

In addition to Hillwood and other estates, Marjorie Merriweather Post’s other lavish home was Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida. Designed by Marion Sims Wyeth and Joseph Urban, Mar-a-Lago was willed in 1973 to the U.S. Government as a retreat for Presidents and visiting foreign dignitaries.[4] The mansion was not, however, used for this purpose, prior to being declared a National Historic Landmark in 1980.[5][6] It was purchased by businessman (later president) Donald Trump in 1985.[7]

I did read the article, the entire thing. They talk about a sad, Rapunzel-like character with no hair and no prince, taking photos of various things (Central Park, the skyline of Manhattan, her family, &c) all as if she is a poor trapped billionaire we should feel sorry for.

In the one photo of herself and Trump posted, it assumes the cut-out Melania and the large Donald Trump is somehow her shrinking violet personality in the presence of the Master of the House and not simply a) She was taking a picture of Donald Trump and the top of her head got in the photo, or b) She’s simply a bad photographer.

I read all the way down to the sad description of the crab photo she posted, shrinking in its shell, just like Melania Trump.

Nope, rich bigot, and wants to stay that way. Doesn’t care about the millions spent to keep her and Barron in Trump Tower because it doesn’t affect her personally. In short, a Republican.

One who I assume Steve King wouldn’t deport, because IOKIYAR.

As bad as Donald Trump’s apology for his Birtherism was to Barack Obama, at least he did that much. Melania has never done so.

Contrast and compare Melania Trump to Barbara Bush or Rosalyn Carter.

Bloomberg Politics: Blackwater Founder Said to Have Advised Trump Team

According to people familiar with his activities, Prince entered Trump Tower through the back, like others who wanted to avoid the media spotlight, and huddled with members of the president-elect’s team to discuss intelligence and security issues. The conversations provide a glimpse of Prince’s relationship with an administration that’s distanced itself from him since the Washington Post reported earlier this month that Prince had met with a top aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Seychelles in January.

That island encounter was the latest in a series of conversations between Trump advisers and Russians that have come to light as U.S. investigators probe allegations that Russia interfered with the presidential election.

I’ve been reading Glass House by Brian Alexander. It’s about what happened to Lancaster, OH whose major employer, Anchor Hocking, has been hollowed out over the last few decades by greenmail, takeovers and private equity firms.

The most amazing thing to me is that people who worked at AH really didn’t pay attention to who owned it or what was happening-if the plant was open, they worked, if it shut down or they were laid off, they didn’t. Their wages and benefits shrunk over the years and they weren’t happy, but no one seemed to notice or care that a succession of conglomerates and/or private equity firms with no clue about making or selling glass were buying and selling it in order to suck money out of it.

There is also an anecdote about a worker who had always voted Dem because he had a vague notion they were for the little guy. Then he started going to church and someone “educated” him about the evils of Obama weakening the country so Arabs, or someone could take over the US. Now he votes GOP.

So, at least in this telling, these voters aren’t necessarily racist or evil, they’re just jaw droppingly disconnected from reality. It’s so much easier to believe that their town was destroyed by foreign competition than laissze faire capitalism.

Conservatives still out to screw you. Your IP history is not enough.

At some point in the coming weeks, Congress is set to consider a fast-tracked proposal that would nullify a slew of new protections for the millions of Americans who use prepaid debit cards. With the clock ticking down to that vote, a lawsuit is trying to compel the release of any communications about these rules between industry lobbyists, lawmakers, and federal regulators.

The Freedom Of Information Act lawsuit [PDF] filed today by advocacy group Allied Progress asks a federal court in D.C. to compel the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau to immediately turn over emails and other communications involving the pending prepaid card rules.

The Tea Pain blog compares the FBI’s statement about a FISA warrant looking into Carter Page to fishing.

Their conclusion? The FBI now has his limit of little fish and is now culling. (Fishing term for reaching your limit but continuing to fish, throwing out smaller fish as you catch bigger ones.)

The concept is similar to the idea I will occasionally post: The first person to roll on the rest gets the best deal from the Feds.
