The sad thing is, that it doesn’t matter any more if they just tell bald-faced lies. Fox and Hate Radio will tell their captive audiences that this is true. Or not refer to it at all.

calochortus  Jun 2, 2017 • 11:39:47am

So, I looked up the new PA coal mine that Trump touted.
The local news had a very pro-Trump piece on it, but when you get down to the details, it is a lot less impressive.
Naturally, it is significant for Somerset County, but 70-100 jobs for maybe 15 years (and maybe not) isn’t really going to turn their economy around.

They expect to hire 70 new employees in 2017, with that number growing to 100 in 2018.

He expects a number of indirect impacts, as well.

“In terms of the economic impact on the area, we see a five to six times multiplier on that in this local area, so that’s everything from truck drivers to machine guys to bartenders to everything, hospital employees. So, we think for the local Somerset County area, 500 to 600 indirect job impact,” he explained.

He expects the jobs they create and the mine to last well over a decade.

But those damn welfare queens in the inner cities!1!!

How to visualize the growth in disability in the United States? One way is to think of a map. Rural communities, where on average 9.1 percent of working-age people are on disability — nearly twice the urban rate and 40 percent higher than the national average — are in a brighter shade than cities. An even brighter hue then spreads from Appalachia into the Deep South and out into Missouri, where rates are higher yet, places economists have called “disability belts.” The brightest color of all can be found in 102 counties, mostly within these belts, where a Washington Post analysis of federal statistics estimates that, at minimum, about 1 in 6 working-age residents draw disability checks.

re: #82 Timothy Watson

This has been going on for awhile now. You have the folks who worked in the factories that are gone now (along with declining coal related jobs). There were little if any safety measures in most of these places (I worked in one of those places for Goodyear when I was 19. I was around open containers of Benzine all day long, we used it to clean injection molds) and so people got sick or ended up with injuries.

But then when all those jobs went away and it was an hour or more commute to find anything at all that paid above minimum wage, people began to realize that disability checks were all they could hope for. If you can get a prescription for pain meds and a doctor to sign off on you being disabled, you suddenly have two income streams. I know someone who had purposely hurt himself more than once to continue his oxy habit. The first injury was a legit back issue from a work accident, the rest (like the time he left his car in drive on a hill so it could hit him, or the time he broke his hand with a hammer). He’s 45 years old and not only has numerous injuries but also has developed COPD from years of smoking (including smoking heroin and crushed oxy pills), and recently insisted on smoking WHILE WEARING AN OXYGEN MASK and caught his face on fire. I’m sure his story in some form is repeated over and over throughout many of the places on that map. (the person in question here is a family member who refuses treatment, which ironically is covered 100 percent under his state funded health insurance).

We have a problem, lots of them. We could fix this one, but there’s no will to give a shit.

I’d have to move my best friend, the swamp cooler. I used to go up there all the time, great views! But it’s been a couple years. This week, my swamp cooler got its seasonal set-up from Fernando, working for my landlord. He apologized for his poor English, and I said, ‘No es un problemo. Mi Espanol es muy malo.’ He laughed and said, ‘My English…es muy malo.’ I considered it a kind of victory. Doesn’t take much these days.

This seems like it’s simply a rebranding of “Bernie was right” and “We need to listen to rural white males in the Red States.”

Which in other words means: “Who gives a shit about the concerns of PoC, women, and the LGBTQ community? Joe Sixpack thinks brown people are taking his jobs and Nancy Pelosi is going to force him to wear a dress.”

This country is starting to remind me of those lottery winners you hear about. They have all this money and become spoiled brats who blow through it all in record time. I honestly have no idea how we come back from this mess. And that’s considering we even find a way to stop the bleeding before it’s entirely too late. In a sane world we’d have an Attorney General who would begin doing his fucking job, but he’s part of the cartel running things. It’s heartbreaking. People should be going to jail, they won’t.

But those damn welfare queens in the inner cities!1!!

How to visualize the growth in disability in the United States? One way is to think of a map. Rural communities, where on average 9.1 percent of working-age people are on disability — nearly twice the urban rate and 40 percent higher than the national average — are in a brighter shade than cities. An even brighter hue then spreads from Appalachia into the Deep South and out into Missouri, where rates are higher yet, places economists have called “disability belts.” The brightest color of all can be found in 102 counties, mostly within these belts, where a Washington Post analysis of federal statistics estimates that, at minimum, about 1 in 6 working-age residents draw disability checks.

washingtonpost.com

Boy are all the Trump supporters going to be surprised if the GOP gets their wrecking ball going like they want.

But then, who knows, maybe they will all be dead from pre-existing conditions and pollution and will never get a chance to realize or do anything about it once it happens.

Just a reminder of a two month old story that was a goodie.

USA Today - Even the Kentucky Coal Museum is going solar

BENHAM, Ky. —Inside the Kentucky Coal Museum, visitors can peruse plenty of memorabilia on mining and the commonwealth’s coal camps. But on the roof, they’ll find a display dedicated to an unexpected industry: Solar power.

In a cost-saving move, this museum in eastern Kentucky is embracing the sun as a source of affordable energy and installing approximately 80 solar panels on its roof.

Tre’ Sexton said he was surprised when his company, Bluegrass Solar, was approached about the project. If there was one building in eastern Kentucky that wouldn’t have a solar-power system, you’d think it would be the coal museum, he said.

“Really the first time that I sat down and was talking about it with everybody, I was like…are you for real? They’re really going to go for this?” Sexton said. “I mean, that would be like showing up at a bank and they ask you if you’d mind taking some of this money out of the vault.”

But putting solar panels on top of the coal museum makes sense economically, Sexton said. Public attractions like this one can’t be profitable if they’re dealing with expensive electric bills every month. And people in eastern Kentucky are becoming more interested in alternative energy options.

OKLAHOMA CITY

NBA center Enes Kanter’s father has been detained in Turkey, the country’s official news agency reported Friday.

Mehmet Kanter was detained in his Istanbul home for an investigation undertaken by a prosecutor’s office in northwestern Turkey, according to the Anadolu news agency. He is being sent to Tekirdag province for questioning. In Turkey, people are detained, then prosecutors may seek an arrest pending trial or release the detainee.

Anadolu does not specify the scope of the investigation, but Dogan news agency says it is part of an investigation into connections to U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen.

The father had disowned Kanter for his public support of Gulen, who the Turkish government blames for last summer’s failed coup attempt when nearly 270 people were killed and more than 2,000 were wounded while trying to overthrow Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Turkish government considers Gulen’s movement a terror organization. Gulen has denied all allegations of involvement in the coup attempt.

/// (Did I mess any of those old canards?)

I wonder if some people blame the Dems for turning them into those people they blamed for their own problems? Small town/rural people have often thought of themselves as the “true” Americans, backbone of the country, more godly than everyone else, and all that. Now they look around and they are dependent on drugs and welfare themselves. Their families are dysfunctional, they’re not getting respect, and they’re not sure what to do about it except try to survive. The GOP promises to right all that and return life to how it once was. They can’t, but the Dems aren’t even trying to make that promise (because it’s an empty one.)

re: #128 Jack Burton

This seems like it’s simply a rebranding of “Bernie was right” and “We need to listen to rural white males in the Red States.”

Which in other words means: “Who gives a shit about the concerns of PoC, women, and the LGBTQ community? Joe Sixpack thinks brown people are taking his jobs and Nancy Pelosi is going to force him to wear a dress.”

There has to be another way to not let them win, without becoming just like them.

I don’t disagree that we could frame a positive masculinity that places concern and stewardship of community, honor, diligence, respect for all, etc. as primary virtues and calls out what passes for “manly” in Trump as the thinking of a 12-year-old (and apologies to 12-year-olds who are more grown up than Trump). This is kind of a long term project though.

Here’s a bit from Wikipedia that doesn’t seem dated at all:

A transcript of Welch’s two-day presentation at the founding meeting was published as The Blue Book of the John Birch Society, and became a cornerstone of its beliefs, with each new member receiving a copy. According to Welch, “both the U.S. and Soviet governments are controlled by the same furtive conspiratorial cabal of internationalists, greedy bankers, and corrupt politicians. If left unexposed, the traitors inside the U.S. government would betray the country’s sovereignty to the United Nations for a collectivist New World Order, managed by a ‘one-world socialist government.’” Welch saw collectivism as the main threat to western culture, and American liberals as “secret communist traitors” who provided cover for the gradual process of collectivism, with the ultimate goal of replacing the nations of western civilization with a one-world socialist government. “There are many stages of welfarism, socialism, and collectivism in general,” he wrote, “but Communism is the ultimate state of them all, and they all lead inevitably in that direction.”

False flag as in the US attacking its own ships, or the old story that FDR knew and got the carriers out of harms way?

The latter: though, IIRC, after the War, when Republicans got control of Congress after the elections of 1946 they made a BFD of opening an “investigation” of the Pearl Harbor attack to try to prove that very point. Of course, what they uncovered was the US’ intelligence operations - both military and civilian - in Hawaii and the Pacific in general were astonishingly FUBARed - and that the absence of the USN carriers was just a (lucky) fluke of scheduling. Not so lucky for the battleship crews, though….

What disgusted Truman the most about McCarthy and thus Eisenhower’s weak public response on McCarthyism was that McCarthy and Cohn went after George Marshall. Truman considered General Marshall the finest American of that era.

“Fox News is learning now that a major invasion of the European mainland is imminent, which is consistent with reports earlier this month of a massive build-up of Allied forces along the British coast. The operation that planners are dubbing ‘Overlord’ appears to have been in the works for several months, despite Nazi assurances that such an invasion is foolhardy. We’ve received word that disgraced General George Patton, who you may remember was removed from his command several months ago due to erratic behavior, has been assigned to lead the operation under the authority of General Eisenhower.

That’s because Marvel started from (effectively) a blank slate with Iron Man, which set the tone for the pre-Avengers films as light and funny but also with moments of drama.

DC started from dark and gritty and so basically couldn’t reel audiences in with anything but “Look at all the explosions and carnage!”

I got frustrated looking for a map in that piece, because, you know, a picture is worth a thousand words and all. So I found this one:

And of course, the places where it’s highest are also most strongly pro-Trump.

Well, the most pro-Trump state was mine, which in the map shows it as the counties with the least draw of “disability” (is that SDI, other programmes, VA Disability, or something else - it doesn’t say).

Trying to hang Donald Trump’s victory on a single factor (disability, racism, economics, industry, &c) is an exercise in futility.

The argument has also been raised about “low education” (never mind this area has some of the largest percentage of college degrees in the nation). As a low-educated person on disability myself here, I can confidently say it was the low-educated disabled that voted for Hillary Clinton - because education ain’t everything, and Trump is a Dumpster fire.

They managed some funny/lighter moments in this one.

There’s still some explosions and carnage too, but …Chris Pine has one hell of a gift for comedic timing, I gotta say.

Again, I should give a bit of historical context. Patton was indeed relieved from command for (among other things) the infamous “shell-shocked soldier” incident. The only thing that really saved his career was the fact that he and Ike were good long-time friends, which meant Patton avoided being cashiered or forced into retirement. The Army actually capitalized on his infamy by assigning him to command of Operation Bodyguard, the massive misinformation campaign used to convince the Reich that the invasion was intended to take place in Calais instead of Normandy.

DC had serious hits with Nolan’s Batman movies, and decided that was the way to have a hit comic book movie — dark colors, grimdark attitude, very little humor. That may work for Batman, but it’s less effective for a character who’s supposed to be sunny and optimistic, like Superman.

It is fairly easy to spoof a caller ID number. (I get calls from telemarketers all the time with alleged local telephone numbers. Makes it pretty easy to ignore them.)

Just because the number is DWS’s number (and there is no reason to believe a lawyer is being truthful in a letter), does not mean the call came from DWS’s office.
