Huckabee is such a pathetic creep. I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s sexually harassed quite a few women in his time at FNC. It’s definitely part of the fucked up culture that Ailes and Murdoch foster there.

Yeah, but the MRA assholes are almost exclusively on the Internet. How many viewers actually watch Fox News? Remember when all we had were the Big 3 networks? Remember the final episode of M*A*S*H and how many people watched that? Compare that number and adjust that population-wise to the number of people watching Fox News in primetime.

Also noteworthy-prior to the switchover to ATSC, ABC, CBS, and NBC had nightly Evening News Shows with a nationwide audience. Curiously absent from that mix-FOX. Things that make you go hmmmm….

Palmer Not-so-Luckey in the news again….

The Verge: Palmer Luckey reportedly hid $100,000 donations to Trump behind Chrono Trigger references

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey donated $100,000 to fund Donald Trump’s inaugural celebrations through shell companies named after elements from classic video game Chrono Trigger, The Washington Post and Mother Jones report. News of the donation broke today, almost a month after Luckey announced he was leaving Facebook, but the money was handed over on January 4th — when he was presumably still under contract with the social media company.

The money was provided by a company called Wings of Time — named after a fantastical machine used in SNES RPG — on January 4th. While Luckey’s name was not recorded in the inauguration committee filings, California records show that Wings of Time is managed by another corporation called Fiendlord’s Keep — another Chrono Trigger reference — of which Luckey is the sole officer. State records also show that Wings of Time is based at a Long Beach address that Luckey has used for other companies, including Luckey Arms LLC.

THE COMPANIES ARE CALLED WINGS OF TIME AND FIENDLORD’S KEEP
The donation came four months after Luckey admitted that he had funded a pro-Trump group dedicated to “shitposting” and “meme magic.” Speaking in September, Luckey said he had given $10,000 to the Nimble America association because it had “fresh ideas on how to communicate with young voters through the use of several billboards.” Those billboards were reportedly used to repurpose internet memes to attack Hillary Clinton.

“I’m really sick and fucking tired of Huckabee justifying this kind of shit while he attacks the morality of LGBT people and liberals.”

After reading your comment, I was reminded of something my parents used to say and would probably say about Huckabee if they were still living: “He’s going to bust hell wide open.”

For “c”hristians like Jim Bakker, Huckabee and Robertson, it appears to me that their dedication to those Christian values they love to talk about are easily jettisoned when it comes to justifying the immoral, despicable behavior of someone like Trump and O’Reilly.

Huckabee’s the ultimate hypocrite. He told people to leave Bristol Palin alone when she was unwed and pregnant and told people not to judge her but when Natalie Portman who was much older and in a much better situation independently, he went out of his way to attack her and accuse her of glamorizing unwed pregnancies. I remember when I thought although Huckabee was right wing, he was a likable enough man, I was dead wrong in that assessment. He may in fact be one of the worst the right wing has to offer.

“Huckabee’s the ultimate hypocrite.”

Right, and let us not forget how quickly he took to Facebook to defend Josh Duggar, or how fast he ran to Kentucky to defend Kim Davis, tried to call it a campaign event, got into trouble with the FEC, and ended up having to pay over $10,000 out of his own pocket because he lied about why he went to Kentucky. Let us also not forget how he cried broke when he had to pony up the 10K+ and did his d*mnedest to convince us that he was a victim. Huckabee is a horrible person. I guess the reason he keeps popping up on Fox is because he has a contract/agreement with the network that requires him to show up and attempt to defend the indefensible from a “c”hristian perspective.

Sounds like nobody is happy with the decision to fire the director other than those that made the decision. From the article, students, faculty, donors are all upset. And the administration wouldn’t give a reason.

After reading the article, It entered my mind that the Huntsman Family seems to think that it’s contributions should give them the power to decide who occupies the CEO position at the Huntsman Cancer Institute. I’d like to know why Berkele’s demotion is such a big deal for the HF.

Felix Randomkitty hospital update #4:

The veterinarian called this morning to let us know that Felix is hydrating well but still on an IV. He is still not eating and they are still feeding him by syringe. She also said she could still not nail down what the specific problem is, and she had a physician/veterinarian coming from Alliance to do an ultrasound on a dog. She said she thought that Felix might have inclusion of fat in his liver due to not eating (this is a problem with cats), and that his blood sugar was continuing to drop (now 225, down from 625 when we took him in). She was of the opinion that she could have the physician/veterinarian also do an ultrasound on Felix and get a clearer idea about what is going on with his pancreas and liver.

After agreeing to that, the visiting specialist did the ultrasound. She found that Felix’s pancreas is very swollen, and there is fluid surrounding both it and his liver. A second call to us to tell us that, and to ask permission to draw fluid from the two areas and send them out to a lab for analysis. She noted that if there was an infection, it seems to be clearing up as his white blood cell count is dropping (high chance) or he is suffering from lymphoma (low chance). The lab should be able to give an answer to that.

Felix’s hospital bill and tests are now north of a thousand dollars. (That’s over a third of my monthly income.) That trip to Yukon looks like it might be fading, though I’ll toss the money toward Felix before Canada. (The house seems awfully lonely to Beth and me without Felix around.)

The Scottsbluff Star-Herald crossword puzzle contest is up to $3,850, that would come in really handy now. (When we were last in Scottsbluff at the vet on Tuesday, I did the puzzle in the vet’s office and took the entry form directly to the Star-Herald. I told the receptionist there that she could just issue the cheque now, there’s no need to waste time checking my form… .)

The War on Coal is coming from inside the house:
thinkprogress.org

Berkeley Energy Group, a coal mining company in Kentucky, announced plans to build the largest solar farm in Appalachia on top of a reclaimed mountaintop coal mine. The solar plant is expected to produce 150MW of electricity.

The company says the project will provide construction jobs to an economically-depressed area. They also say they will use as many of their coal miners as possible to operate the new solar plant (presumably retraining them as necessary).

As I recall, there was a presidential candidate that proposed this very sort of project and retraining, but she was evil or something.

It is all rhetoric & symbolism: The Wall and the Muslim Ban are symbols of our resolve to retain our purity, talk about trade tariffs and import taxes and reinvigorating traditional mining and manufacturing jobs are symbols of our resolve to return to a mythical America of small towns, nickel cokes and hard-working white people.

Well, my mythical America (I live in mythical Mountain Time Zone) small town does have hard-working white people (and everyone else as well: ranching and farming are also traditional American jobs); no nickel cokes though.

At my dine-out tonight in Cheyenne, I got in a heated discussion with the group Trump cheerleader, who was complaining about the “liberal agenda” killing off coal mining in Wyoming. I tried to point out that coal is a dying industry because of technology improvements, not liberals trying to take away jobs. I noted the coal trains that used to go through my town from Wyoming every ten minutes or so only five years ago are down to one every ninety minutes.

He went on about how liberal activists shut down the idea of construction of a coal port in Washington state … I pointed out that while there were indeed activists opposed to it, what really killed the idea was that the port is now economically unfeasable due to reduced imports by other tradtionally high-using coal nations such as China and India.

He wasn’t having any of my socialist bullshit though.

While there are people you can explain things to who might not accept them right away but will be influenced by other thoughts, there are those that no amount of evidence will convince. This guy is a first-class fan of FOX News Channel, and no “liberal media” is going to influence him dadgumit.

Last night I saw that the trump administration had now moved it’s laser focus to Iran, following the Syrian cruise missile attack, the dropping of the moab in Afghanistan, and the debacle of NK and our lost armada.

Trump’s idiocies are going to start a war, ruin alliances, and make America far less safe.

And he can do it in 140 characters or less.

This particular time wasn’t in a tweet, but in comments that Korea was part of China.

This fucknut is going to get a lot of people killed because of sheer dumbassery and ignorance. He doesn’t have anyone around him who knows a damned thing about world events, history, culture, or politics of the regions he pontificates on, and instead thinks he can bullshit his way through foreign policy.

Where’d Trump get the idea? China’s leader told him - at their summit a few days back at Mar a Lago, when Trump got lectured on history and politics of the Korean peninsula. Instead of checking something like the CIA Factbook, Trump decided to take China at its word and repeated it.

That’s how wars start.

A better “perspective” (as they called the last story I linked) on O’Reilly from The Washington Post:

For years when I was growing up, Fox News was the soundtrack of my family home. I’m convinced my father slept with it on so he could sublimely absorb more Sean Hannity, Bill O’Reilly and friends. So my parents were thrilled in August 2002 when producers from “The O’Reilly Factor” called to book me for a segment to promote my book “A Girl’s Life Online.” Before taping the show, O’Reilly came out to introduce himself, and my mother was giddy to tell him that she watched him when she was hot and sweaty, while on the treadmill. O’Reilly seemed baffled.

Though this was almost 15 years ago, I can remember the experience of being a guest on “The Factor” so well because it’s an episode that still haunts and disturbs me to this day. And the dismissive way O’Reilly dealt with my own history as a victim of assault made the allegations that finally pushed Fox News to fire him this week feel all too familiar.

At 19, I appeared on “The O’Reilly Factor” to tell my story in the hopes that it would prevent sexual assault. Six years earlier, I had been molested by a man who I went to go meet after I spent six months developing an online relationship with him. The assault occurred in 1996 and resulted in a landmark federal case.

O’Reilly challenged me about the fact that I decided to go meet this person I didn’t know. He then insisted that at 13, I should have known better than go meet someone, and I should have been able to predict what would happen. Fair enough; in the back of my head, even then, I did know I was taking a massive risk. In typical O’Reilly preaching, though, he told me I made a huge mistake and appeared to suggest that I deserved to become a victim of sexual assault because I knew I was doing something I shouldn’t have done.

Escaping from the mass grave, he was ultimately captured yet again[22] and sent to Auschwitz, where he eventually became a Sonderkommando.[22][23][24] While at Auschwitz, Eisenhardt reunited with a Romani girl named Magda, with whom he had fallen in love when he was younger, and with whom he escaped the prison camp during the October 7th 1944 revolt.

Bills was probably written at a lower grade level.

I think it was the historical inaccuracies that peeved the Fords Theater people. He definitely upset people who were present for the Hinckley assassination attempt on Reagan with his inaccuracies. I love reading historical books but I stick to books written by people who are actual historians. My favorite historian is probably David McCullough. He’s fair to his subjects. He doesn’t over glamorize or over vulcanize them. He writes about people.

re: #162 Targetpractice

Here’s the thing: When a worker gets sick, you send him home and bring in another worker. When a machine goes down, you spend hours waiting for the tech to come out, then find out that he needs parts that he’ll need to spend another couple hours to grab, before finding out that it’s going to be down for longer because the parts are on back order and you’re at the back of the queue.

Or have another stored (paying for space) onsite to replace it as fast as possible, so basically a waste of space and upfront money for that. Or paying for a hot shot replacement being available if needed, thus paying a retainer for this service. Or having a bunch of spare parts to fix the only machine you have, and possibly paying a tech to be onsite all the time or on retainer (paying monthly) to be available in some SLA criteria. These people that think things can happen without an initial outlay and recurring expense are crazy.

I have had people come back at me after I made this argument saying “I have a coffee maker that i have had for years and it still works fine with not much maintenance”. So I ask, “Do you make a few hundred pots per day with it?”. A business will make more coffee in a day than an average individual may make in a year through the machine. You can’t run a business like you run your home any more than you can run government like you run a business.

Meanwhile, as I’ve been warning here for a while, the GOP is trying to resurrect the Trumpcare/Ryancare/#GOPDontCare plan that failed so miserably just a few weeks ago.

There’s the possibility that the GOP may be able to broker a deal between the far right extremists of the Freedom Caucus and the slightly less extreme garden variety GOP, but the reality is that any deal means millions lose coverage, everyone will see far higher premiums than they otherwise would, and what kind of coverage people will have will be greatly reduced.

These fuckers are intent on getting their tax cuts by any means necessary - and it means going after those who can least afford losing coverage or seeing their coverages affected.

There’s a reason some fast food companies specialize in breakfast or certain kinds of food, but not others. They’ve invested money, time, effort, and training, to make sure that the product gets out per company policy, and if you start pushing to get 24 hour breakfast (or open to close), then it affects other food service, especially when it comes to prepping food items and space needed for each.

If you’ve ever watched any of those Restaurant/Bar Rescue type shows, or Gordon Ramsay’s show where he goes in and fixes restaurants, the fundamental move he makes is reducing the size of the menu. It inevitably comes down to better control on food items, portion control, and costs.

Fewer items means you spend more time with each item, and the quality goes up.

In the “Outlander” series, wherein a woman from the mid-20th century first visits, then goes back to live in, the 1700’s… the thing she’s most vehement about taking back with her is a bunch of pre-filled syringes full of penicillin. Then she demands that her 1760-husband build a special air-tight room in their house, buy her the best microscope available, and she sets out slices of bread in the room trying to cultivate more penicillin. She can only make enough for immediate-family emergencies, but it’s her absolute top priority project through all eight books.

Targetpractice  Apr 20, 2017 • 8:34:22am

Here’s the thing about automation, it generally takes years of trial and error before it becomes accepted as the industry standard. Go back 50 years, to when automation first started showing up in auto plants, and you’d find automakers dealing with all sorts of headaches. Paint not being applied properly/evenly, parts being assembled wrong, and of course the occasional case of a robot injuring/killing one of his human coworkers.

Case in point, you ever hear the joke about the Fiat Strada? Fiat made this whole big song and dance about how the Strada was built on their new automated assembly line, even came out with an advertising campaign that went: “The Strada, handbuilt by robots. The robots, handbuilt by Fiat.” But within a year of introduction, owners found so many problems with their cars that it became a joke: “Built by robots, driven by idiots.”

And guess what: No fast food chain wants to have that reputation. And these machines seem “cheap,” but when you toss in the contracts for years of tech support, the cost of regular maintenance, and the cost of either pre-packaged ingredients or paying people on-site to prepare them fresh, they represent a major investment that is going to ward off even those billionaire’s considering a venture into totally automated restaurants. So don’t expect to roll into your local McDonald’s and partake of their totally automated kitchen any time soon.

I’ve seen stuff online saying Chaffetz may be trying to set up a run for Utah governor. But quitting his Rep office early wouldn’t seem to help that.

From the WaPo article linked…

WaPo - The Fix - Jason Chaffetz and Devin Nunes were both faced with investigating Trump. Now both are stepping aside.

McKay Coppins sums it up well:

Even before Chaffetz announced his abrupt exit, his political luck had suffered a steep decline when Trump was elected. As oversight chairman, he was preparing to spend four years investigating President Hillary Clinton’s alleged scandals and misdeeds. Then the Republicans unexpectedly seized control of the White House, leaving Chaffetz with the unenviable task of policing his own party. It was a fraught job to begin with, and his casual attitude toward the Trump family’s potential conflicts of interest — demonstrated in his interview with me last month — has only increased the pressure on him.

“Aside from Trump and Clinton,” one Utah Republican told me last month, “nobody’s fortunes changed more on presidential election night than Jason Chaffetz.”

He can’t claim to be putting on an act when he goes into the courtroom complaining that the reporters are fiction writers all while bitching about how his family should have privacy (when he gave none to Pizza shop owners or the families of Sandy Hook victims).

Republicans are allowed to have cheated before, they’re just not allowed be caught cheating.

When caught cheating, they must offer a teary apology for having been caught, have asked their family for forgiveness, then spend a short period in the political wilderness before popping back up as if nothing happened.

Note that this only works for Republicans. For Democrats, being caught in an affair is immediate career death. Your life might as well end as well, as yours will become a cautionary tale (see: Edwards, John). And just being accused of an affair will be enough to swing an election against a Democrat, while a Republican basically needs to be caught in mid-thrust to lose an election.

And I’ve been reading about it, I’ve been talking about it for a long time, and that demands, really, immediately, fair trade, with all of our trading partners. And that includes Canada,” he said Tuesday, raising his voice to emphasize the country.

Shit - hopefully this doesn’t go through as I cant afford $17k increase to have a baby (I mean I can but there goes literally all the money I saved for future emergencies).

Side note - the baby is a BOY!!!

My god my family name will live on (reason I don’t share my last name online is that there are only 4 people with the same last name in the country - me, my wife, and the other 2 are my parents).

But hey - it is nice to be unique!

The Lizard Kingdom continues to grow! Muah hahahahaha

re: #339 lawhawk

The bills need to go to committee for markup/hearings/vote. The JCT and CBO each need to score the bill. The entire House would need to vote.

And here’s a hint - there’s no version of this that will pass JCT/CBO muster. It’ll be more of the same vaporware found in Trumpcare/Ryancare/#GOPDontCare v.1. Millions lose their coverage, higher premiums for all, and massive tax cuts for the rich w/burden shifting to everyone else.

It’s the same repackaged bullshit that the GOP has spewed for years. They can recycle their bullshit, but it still wont pass the smell test.

Look, I don’t care. Write up a bill, put numbers in it. Or don’t put numbers in it. Does it really matter? Nobody cares, the media doesn’t get it. Pass the laws and I’ll give it to Price.

Kissinger’s take on Jared seems …diplomatic.

Another way to say it is that Kissinger spoke with Kushner and didn’t think that Kushner had the skills to do the job.

Another way to say it is Kissinger issued a warning to everyone that Kushner’s going to flame out spectacularly.

Another way to say it is Kissinger’s worried that Trump’s done gone fucked everything to hell and put this nitwit in charge of foreign policy.

I’d bet the latter two are correct. No way Kissinger would think this baby faced neophyte would be successful in this realm.

Maybe he paid for her to have an abortion?

That was exactly my thought on the subject.

Waiting for the Trump tweet thanking Kissinger for his kind words extolling Jared’s virtues.
