Lubbock’s Mr. Conservative reaches critical derp-mass, as though the shooter set out to massacre a random baseball practice and just happened to pick one with a GOP congressman present:

It is time for Republicans in Washington to be restored their right to carry weapons for their own protection and for those who are with them.
Apparently the only reason the Capitol Police were at the Republican baseball practice session was the presence of Representative Steve Scalise. Had the police been absent, a great many people would have been murdered.

I love it how this snake oil salesman twists the facts to fit his own narrative. “If Scalise weren’t there…”

Hey asshole, Rand Paul was there too, he was ducking for cover in the dugout during the shooting. He’s a United States Senator from Kentucky. There’s only a hundred of those folks.

I’m fairly certain that even if it was a squad of junior congresscritters playing catch in suburban D.C. there would be some protection from Federal police. This whole “more people would have died if these important people weren’t involved” gobbledegoop sounds like, fuckin’ fuck, dare I say it? FAKE NEWS!

Birth Control Works posted an article about relaxing restrictions on prescribing certain birth control medications in New Mexico: Specifically, the new regulations allow pharmacists to prescribe them in certain cases, alleviating extra steps and cost in seeing a physician for those prescriptions.

I do not know the incidence of adverse effects of various birth control medications (I assume they are low), as I am not a woman nor do I play one on television.

In respect to cost, time, and fewer hoops to jump through I see this as good.

In the event of adverse effects (if there are any), I see a problem here, as I had to deal with a similar problem in a VA emergency room where a pain medication was prescribed to me that had a black-box warning for epilepsy. I only found out about it when I got home because I looked up the medication on-line and found the warning.

A pharmacist does not necessarily have access to a customer’s medical records, so contraindications for a medication directly prescribed by the pharmacist could go unnoticed.

As I mentioned, I don’t know the incidence of adverse reactions to BC so I could be citing a concern with little merit. In my own case with the pain med, it was because I looked it up myself before taking the drug. I imagine most people just assume that the pharmacist is not going to make a mistake even though the pharmacist has no access to medical records.

With the system set up as it is now, it is difficult to avoid using oil.

It’s like the days of the Bell System, where Bell Telephone advertised its service.

Just a hunch, but I think heads may roll…
Panel maker for London tower gave warning

Diagrams in a brochure dated 2016 for Reynobond tiles reviewed by Reuters show how polyethylene (PE) core tiles are suitable only for buildings of up to 10 metres in height.

“As soon as the building is higher than the firefighters’ ladders, it has to be conceived with an incombustible material,” the brochure says.

The brochure was issued by French-based Arconic Architectural Products, which is responsible for the marketing in Europe of systems produced by US company Arconic, which owns Reynobond.

The Guardian and the BBC have reported in recent days that panels with a PE core were used in a refurbishment of the 24-storey tower bock that was completed last year.

Construction company Rydon Group, which undertook the work, and the local authority which owns Grenfell Tower declined to confirm whether the panels were PE.

[…]

Other diagrams in the Reynobond brochure show that panels with a fire retardant core - the FR model, according to Arconic’s website - can be used for buildings of up to 30 metres tall. Above that height, it says, panels with a non-combustible core - the A2 model - should be used.

Grenfell Tower is over 60 metres tall.

John Cowley, director of Omnis Exteriors which supplied the padding for the refurbishment but did not install it, told the Guardian that the company had been asked to supply the Reynobond PE variant.

The newspaper said the PE panels were £2 ($3.35) cheaper per square metre than the Reynobond FR option.

How much can they have saved? £8,000?

Given that the cladding was installed AMA (against manufacturer advice), it’s likely the insurance company will NOPE. And if they want to score social brownie points, maybe represent the former tenants in court, or make the payout, but to the tenants only.

Tropical season is gearing up. The disturbance that moved off the coast of Africa last week is approaching South America, but is expected to turn to the NW and enter the Caribbean Sea with a 50% chance of developing into a tropical storm in five days.

A new disturbance has formed off the coast of Belize. It is expected to move across the Yucatan Peninsula and into the Gulf of Mexico (potentially threatening the Texas coast). The National Hurricane Center gives an 80% chance to this disturbance developing into a tropical storm in five days. (I might want to give a heads up to my brother-in-law who lives on the Texas coast. He tends not to pay attention to the tropics unless I tell him.)

I don’t think this will reduce the number of necessary physican wellness visits.

I trust my pharmacist more than I trust most doctors. I’ve worked with her for years.

VOCABULARY WORD OF THE DAY:

Nadir

The nadir (UK: /ˈnædɪər/), (US: /ˈneɪdɪər/) (from Arabic: نظير‎‎ / ALA-LC: naẓīr, meaning “counterpart”) is the direction pointing directly below a particular location; that is, it is one of two vertical directions at a specified location, orthogonal to a horizontal flat surface there. Since the concept of being below is itself somewhat vague, scientists define the nadir in more rigorous terms. Specifically, in astronomy, geophysics and related sciences (e.g., meteorology), the nadir at a given point is the local vertical direction pointing in the direction of the force of gravity at that location. The direction opposite of the nadir is the zenith.

Nadir also refers to the downward-facing viewing geometry of an orbiting satellite,[1] such as is employed during remote sensing of the atmosphere, as well as when an astronaut faces the Earth while performing a spacewalk.

The word is also used figuratively to mean the lowest point of a person’s spirits,[2] or the quality of an activity or profession.[3]

28
Birth Control Works  Jun 18, 2017 • 12:59:54am

ETYMOLOGY OF NADIR

late 14c., in astronomical sense, from Medieval Latin nadir, from Arabic nazir “opposite to,” in nazir as-samt, literally “opposite direction,” from nazir “opposite” + as-samt “road, path” (see zenith). Transferred sense of “lowest point (of anything)” is first recorded 1793.

OPPOSITE OF:

zenith (n.) Look up zenith at dictionary.com
“point of the heavens directly overhead at any place,” late 14c., from Old French cenith (Modern French zénith), from Medieval Latin cenit, senit, bungled scribal transliterations of Arabic samt “road, path,” abbreviation of samt ar-ras, literally “the way over the head.” Letter -m- misread as -ni-.

The Medieval Latin word could as well be influenced by the rough agreement of the Arabic term with classical Latin semita “sidetrack, side path” (notion of “thing going off to the side”), from se- “apart” + *mi-ta-, a suffixed form of PIE root *mei- (1) “to change, go, move.” Figurative sense of “highest point or state” is from c. 1600.

Fair enough. As I noted, I am not aware of the specific contraindications of BC or if there could be significant problems a pharmacist would not be aware of.

My example of the VA emergency room prescribing me a pain-killer came from a Nurse Practitioner. The VA could not provide a patient information sheet for the drug (they issued it out of their drug locker in the emergency room, not the pharmacy). Thus, that is not the same as a person who has used the same medication for years without complaint.

Some viewed the investment as excessive at a time when teachers have classroom needs and administrative salaries have swelled. Many couldn’t remember being informed or aware of the purchase in 2015.

“It’s pretty offensive to me as a taxpayer to feel like you don’t have any voice and you are being excluded from decisions that could harm your child or kill them,” said Melissa Patt, the parent of three students in the Shawnee Mission School District. “What else could we be spending our tax dollars on and getting the same safety results?

A tsunami has apparently just hit Greenland.

Via GoogleTranslate:

The police report major floods in the Nuugaatsiaq district. Major waves have also hit Uummannaq and Illorsuit.

Senior Prosecutor at Police Liselotte Bøhn says it is not yet clear what the flood is due to.

There are extensive devastations, but it is not yet clear or how many people have been hurt.

A rescue helicopter has been sent from Uummannaq with police, health care and emergency preparedness, and efforts are being made to send additional resources to the area from Kangerlussuaq. The rescue operation is coordinated in cooperation with rescue preparedness and health services.

If you are in the fjord systems around Uummannaq, you must look up the terrestrial network and stay away from the coastline.

KNR sends extra radio at 00.45 and again at 1.00.

The Right Question (goes to Stonekettle Station)

After Gov. Scott Walker put a (bogus) statement about the ACA on Twitter and Jim Wright went after him, Mr. Wright then posed a question to his followers: Is health care a right?

The idea was to provoke some thought on the issue: if it is not a right, then it can be denied and the numbers of people who die from lack of insurance coverage does not matter. If it is a right, then healthcare cannot be denied.

He alludes to both the IX Amendment and a treaty we signed with the United Nations regarding providing health services to all citizens.

He also notes in his article that out of the thousands and thousands of times that politicians are asked about healthcare, none is ever asked “Do you think healthcare is a right?”

Mr. Wright doesn’t condemn in his article those who do not. He condemns them for not being willing to stand up for their conviction.

He also notes that he got more equivocation from people on the left, who wanted to put qualifications on such a right. (If a right can be qualified, it really isn’t a right. All you have to do is change the qualifications.)

The article is an interesting read.

Or perhaps a bribe to a building inspector.

There was a popular board game in Germany that I am still looking for, as it is no longer being made: Pfusch am Bau. Roughly “Fudging the Construction”.

you are given a certain amount of clay (building material) and bid for jobs to build things with it. You can cheat by secretly using bits of wood (substandard material) and wrapping it in clay. There is a Building Inspector whose job it is to poke the clay with a toothpick.

But you can bribe the Inspector. And basically, the game is set up that you cannot win without bribing someone…

In weird news:

Maine Runner Drowns Rabid Raccoon in a Puddle after It Attacked Her (goes to the Washington Post)

In a scene she likened to something out of a Stephen King novel, Rachel Borch was out for a run on a wooded trail near her home when she was attacked by a rabid raccoon. Faced with having no other choice, she fought it off, killing it with her bare hands by holding it in a puddle of water as it gripped onto her hand with its teeth and clawed and scratched at her. Borch, who lives in Hope, Maine, told the Bangor Daily News that her run was lovely, ordinary and peaceful … until it wasn’t.

“Imagine the Tasmanian devil,” the 21-year-old said. “It was terrifying.”

re: #61 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

There was a popular board game in Germany that I am still looking for, as it is no longer being made: Pfusch am Bau. Roughly “Fudging the Construction”.

you are given a certain amount of clay (building material) and bid for jobs to build things with it. You can cheat by secretly using bits of wood (substandard material) and wrapping it in clay. There is a Building Inspector whose job it is to poke the clay with a toothpick.

But you can bribe the Inspector. And basically, the game is set up that you cannot win without bribing someone…

Nine-Year-Old Wants to Make Bigfoot State’s Official Cryptid (goes to Crosscut, more at the link):

If any place can claim to be the official home to Bigfoot, it’s Washington state.

That’s why Sen. Ann Rivers, R-La Center, promises to keep trying to make Sasquatch the official state “cryptid” — a critter whose existence has not been sufficiently proven by mainstream science.

The bill was the brainchild of 9-year-old Caleb Davis, who believes in Bigfoot. A lifelong student of Sasquatch along with his dad, he wrote to Rivers, asking her to make Bigfoot the official Washington state cryptid.

Senator Rivers’s bill died in committee, but she intends to revive it in the next legislative session.

It would occur to me that since this ended in a hung jury and not a not guilty finding, and that the prosecutor has said he is taking this back to trial, dancing on the emotions of the victims might not be the best strategy.

Yeah that’s pretty stupid given that Cosby was not acquitted and the prosecution intends to try again.

Could see that working.

The only problem is playing the song in the original keys: (Bb/Eb) - I don’t own a so-called “war dulcimer” because they cost as much as my car. As such, playing the song has me reaching all over the instrument for the proper notes.

I like the song though. For my long-playing, short-selling album, I wrote to Mason Williams’s representative that controls licensing the song for public performance and got a resounding “no” back.

Enya’s firm issued a mechanical license to me for “Lothlorien” however (so that song appears on the album).

That must have been a gas (not a classical one). One of my highlights playing was playing at the World’s Fair in Seville in 1992. (I was stationed in Rota at the time.) I got free tickets for my family - the command “requested” I go play after I was invited (sort of a good will thing). For that I stuck to public domain music.

Dropping one more thing before I go to bed, because it is delicious. When wingnuts argue… .

In that ridiculous protest against the trolling of the RWNJ about protesting a Sam Houston monument in Texas that turned out a whole bunch of open-carry people, Oath Keepers, and Nazis, it would appear that the so-called “alt-right” is denouncing the Oath Keepers for trying to kick the Nazis out of their counter-protest of a non-existent protest.

splcenter.org

Oathcucks, LOL (more at SPLC):

An article on AltRight (dot) com titled “Oathkeepers Turn Against the Alt Right” was the first shell fired in a building salvo against Oath Keepers, and was quickly picked up by The Daily Stormer.

These incidents comes on the heels of several other public spats between members of the “Alt Right” and various “Patriot” and militia groups.

Brad Griffin, who writes on Occidental Dissent under the alias Hunter Wallace, has posted accounts of feuds between “Patriot” and militia organizations such as “American Warrior Resistance” and Oath Keepers after disagreements in Gainesville and New Orleans over the past month.

“I’m addressing a group called the American Warrior Revolution, we’re addressing our friends the Oathcucks, and various III% militia groups. We’ve been watching you people since then and we’ve had a little trouble.”

More wingnuts going off on more mainstream conservatives (some of whom are also wingnuts).

After the widespread backlash the Southern Baptist Convention received over its rejection of condemnation of the so-called “alt-right” movement (the argument was the condemnation was too broad, potentially implicating conservatives that do not support the so-called “alt right” movement), the SBC went back to the drawing board for a new resolution.

The convention voted formally to “decry every form of racism, including alt-right white supremacy as antithetical to the Gospel of Jesus Christ” and to “denounce and repudiate white supremacy and every form of racial and ethnic hatred as a scheme of the devil,” according to the Associated Press Wednesday.

Richard Spencer weighed in on Tuesday when the SBC rejected the original resolution favourably. Wednesday when they adopted the narrower resolution above, he went ballistic on Twitter, saying the SBC “really excels at submission.”

So to save a little bit of money, the put hundreds of lives at risk? Doesn’t make a lick of sense given all the money they’ll have to pay out now for this completely avoidable tragedy.

Ever after that [REDACTED] [REDACTED] Milton Friedman came up with his damn doctrine (“a company’s only responsibility is to its shareholders”), companies in most of the world have chased short-term profits and savings (=profits) like a drug addict chases the next high.

£8,000 against damages misread statistics say you likely never have to pay. The thing is, if the chance of a major fire is 1:100,000, the longer the building lives without a major fire the greater the risk becomes. And a refurbishment doesn’t change that. And using flammable cladding increases the risk that the fire is a total and utter conflagration when it happens.

There are three kinds of lies: Lies, Damned lies and Statistics.

And the FriedmanAddict Doctrine has infected part of national economists too, they stare themselves blind on short-term savings not realizing that they are expensive as fuck long-term (5x to 20x the saving is not uncommon).

And what makes the Grenfell Tower Fire look even worse (to the public eye, anyway) is that the building’s owner (a Local Council, so presumably responsible to some “taxpayers” somewhere down the line) recently spent £8.6MM* on what was basically a cosmetic refurbishment: whatever the costs of fire-safety improvements or equipment might have been, they will surely seem like petty-cash compared to the costs the 6/14 fire will eventually run up.

*c. $11MM: seems high to me, but I don’t have that good a handle on those types of costs for London. Re-bricking the facade of a similar building in New York runs, I think, something around $3MM (?), which seems like a lot more work than adding the cladding as they did at Grenfell Tower.

Being on that list as a citizen just might add one to the list of victims of Trumps violations of those laws that impact Presidential actions, like record keeping etc.
forbes.com

“This Twitter account operates as a ‘designated public forum’ for First Amendment purposes, and accordingly the viewpoint-based blocking of our clients is unconstitutional,” read the letter sent by the Knight First Amendment Institute to Trump on Tuesday. “We ask that you unblock them and any others who have been blocked for similar reasons.”… While social media censorship is still a gray area of the law, there may still be precedent for this type of case. In Davison v. Loudoun County, a Loudoun County, Virginia resident named Brian Davison sued the county’s board of supervisors for deleting a negative comment he made on the chair of the board’s Facebook page. While the chairwoman attempted to have the case dismissed by arguing that the social media page was her personal account, the court refused to dismiss the case and treated the account as an official government page…

I’m disappointed that the jury was hung. He should have been found guilty given that he has admitted under oath while being deposed that he has given at least one woman drugs so that he could have sex with her. How can someone consent to sex if they’re drugged up? Is he arguing that women are agreeing to be drugged up so he can have sex with them?

Ironic that a man who spent considerable effort telling young Black men to pull up their pants and take responsibility for their lives, couldn’t exercise self control over his own libido. What a way to destroy one’s own legacy.

I caught about 5 minutes of Meet The Chuck and his panel, and that was 5 minutes too much of David Brooks and Danielle Pletka.

I guess since the word around DC Republicans is “there is nothing there” the investigations should stop because all they are doing is drawing in an undisciplined man to overreact and make it look like he is obstructing.

Oh?

And not one point made or question asked about what started this all…Russia, Mike Flynn, Paul Manafort, Roger Stone(ed), Carter Page and Trump people close to all of it.

If there is “nothing there” then why did the undisciplined man start doing all kinds of undisciplined things to attempt to stop the investigations? Don’t over-think it political pundits, sometimes the answer can be so simple. He is doing it because he has a reason for doing it. He isn’t doing it because he is undisciplined, his methods are undisciplined.

I think it is pretty simple and should be for someone with their reputations to figure out. An innocent man, even undisciplined, wouldn’t be going to the lengths to deny, misdirect and yes…obstruct… an investigation into nothing.

Yeah Trump is an ego maniac and he would go to all lengths to make himself look good, but to this length? He isn’t that fucking stupid.

I think Brooks and Pletka and even Amy Walker are too willing to buy the Republican line of nothing there because that is The Great Republican Hope for Trump. They want to obstruct and delay everything so they can continue to fuck us all over for more tax cuts for their big buddies.

All of DC is now in the act of delaying and dodging. They are all obstructing everything. It is a race for Trump to hang on and the Republicans to do as much as they can before this all blows up one way or another.

Article on Trump lawyer Jay Sekulow How to get rich suing for Jesus

On July 31, the day that the Center for Medical Progress was sued over the release of a series of undercover videos targeting Planned Parenthood, Jay Sekulow, a prominent Christian conservative lawyer, released an ad attacking President Obama over his support for the group.
“I call him the defender-in-chief,” said Sekulow, who looks like Saul Goodman with money and a good tailor. Dramatic background music akin to the score of a Hitchcock film played as he attacked Obama for “defending, relentlessly, the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in light of all the videos that have been released this week.” The White House’s support for Planned Parenthood, Sekulow argued, was “unthinkable” on its own, but to blame the creators of the sting videos for anything at all, he said, “well, that just doesn’t work.”

My asshat congressman, Rep. Andy “I won $10 million in the Publishers Clearing House Sweepstakes” Biggs, reposted those videos on his Facebook when they were posted to LiveLeak. I called up Rep. Biggs’ local office and chewed out the aide, pointing out those videos were under a court order not to be disclosed, and did Rep. Biggs, graduate of Brigham Young University Law, not understand that? And maybe I should turn *him* (Rep. Biggs) into the judge as well. I don’t know if anything happened, but it made me feel better.

Yesterday, though, I did agree with Biggs that Bernie shouldn’t have quizzed Russ Vought about his religion. I then went on to point out that Vought, who had recently worked at Wheaton College, would consider Biggs, a Mormon, to be not a Christian and a cultist. I’m pretty sure Biggs doesn’t read his FB, but I want his followers to understand that making common cause with Evangelicals who think you’re going to ultimately burn in hell (and yes I said that) is not terribly smart, IMHO.

Pivot? More like plop.

For all the people that thought Trump would be bad; he is worse.

For all the people that thought they could control and get him to do something like a political pivot; he is the worst.

Everyone is losing, everyone knows it and they are all accessing the damage potential.

Yah, I know. My parents did it as a retrofit to this house when they got older and just couldn’t take the heat. Even when we moved here 20+ years ago I thought a whole house fan would have been more practical. Now? We’re seeing longer hot spells and we do really appreciate it from time to time. Back in the day, heat was 3 days and done, and we rarely had really warm nights except maybe once in the Fall. The last few years we get 5 day hot spells. This particular heat event started Friday (high 88°) and is now predicted to continue in the 90s until Friday when it will again be 88°. This is weird. So no, nothing could possibly be happening to the climate.

Question for anyone: is Jason’s Isbell related to the pop singer Scotty Isbell?

I only ask because he followed me for some reason so I followed him back, as is my general policy, but he is such a trump knucklehead I had to unfollow.

Clarke knew he’d be under too much observation in that job. Much harder to murder people legally with that sort of scrutiny.

Either that, or he knew there were going to be some scandals popping up back home that he wouldn’t want to have to deal with as an Administration official.

Either way, good riddance.

#Assad media is reporting that the U.S. military just shot down a #Syria jet near #Tabqa, #Raqqa.

Delurking to say how much I love Jason Isbell. My son (blues guitarist) introduced me to his music. I was a young mom so sometimes it feels like my son and I grew up together. Anyway he sent me this song Children of Children and it makes me tear up every time.

That opened to Speed Trap Town. Photorealistic lyrics, love-child of Springsteen and John Cougar Mellencamp. Come up and play.

Children was good, the next, The Life You Chose is our freakn’ biography. (Met a girl before Elizabethtown went wet, courted in the back of her 66 Mustang, had our first kid when she was 19, still living the life she chose.)

Another great song. That’s what I love about him. The stories are real and so well told. Did you see his CBS interview? I think it was called the fall and rise of Jason Isbell.

Nah. Never heard of him until Charles put him up. There is a great music scene in Muscle Shoals. The Stones have recorded there, and our favorite Auburn girl:

The Muscle Shoals documentary is one of my favorites.
