I’m ashamed to have been born and raised in that state.

Thank dog I moved to Colorado (belated wave to Anymouse who just drove by my town a day or two ago).

What town is that? (I went through Peetz to Sterling on Colo. 113 to US-138, then west on Colo. 14 to Colo. 71 back towards Scottsbluff).

re: #272 makeitstop

I’ll bet he’s got a fear of being called out for being stanky, probably due to bad hygiene.

He’s been noticed wearing multiple shirts a few times IIRC.

The only person I had seen dress like that was Michael Stipe in the early 1980s. He and Peter Buck came to my freshman comp class to talk about songwriting. Stipe had on two pairs of jeans and two long-sleeve shirts. Buck was wearing a tuxedo shirt that made me think he hadn’t changed after a gig.

I doubt there’s a connection to Bannon.

Female-Led “Greatest American Hero” Reboot Lands at ABC (goes to Hollywood Reporter)

Cue whinging from MRAs, conservatives, and people who don’t like reboots.

A female-led reboot of the beloved ’80s series has landed at ABC with a hefty put pilot commitment, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The single-camera, half-hour comedy remake follows Meera, a 30-year-old Indian-American woman from Cleveland, whose talents include tequila drinking and karaoke and not much else. Then some aliens entrust her with a super suit to protect the planet, and the world has never been in more unreliable hands.

The original series was an hourlong and starred a white male actor (William Katt) in the lead role. The show, also known for its catchy theme song, debuted on ABC in 1981 and ran for three seasons.

i used to know a guy who wore two shirts, plus and undershirt. In his case, I think it was because if he didn’t you’d be able to tell how skinny he was.

Pretty sure that’s not Bannon’s reason.

Blind Frog Belly White  Sep 12, 2017 • 5:41:11pm

Having now read two very favorable reviews of Hillary’s book, I’ve concluded that the people who tell you how awful it is that she won’t take any responsibility and blames it all on Bernie haven’t read it.

re: #13 nines09

Well, there is the problem that millions more live in Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina than in the US Virgin Islands.

That said, the territory is also American and ignoring its plight emphasises again that an American living in a territory is more like a second-class citizen.

Perhaps USVI should get attention by applying for statehood.

I’ve been known to wear two shirts, because I am very thin and sometimes I get cold (even in the summer).

It should. The Constitution doesn’t allow for a right to vote for people in territories though. The news media doesn’t treat a territory with 100,000 people the same as a state (Florida) 20,000,000 (two hundred time the USVI).

A great amount of the “non-violence” calls are for optics. The GOP doesn’t care about optics. Condemn those who are violent as not part of the broader movement, and move on.

Whitewashing of the Civil Rights Movement today makes it appear that Martin Luther King Jr. was all about, and only about, non-violence. While he preached (both as a minister and as an activist) non-violence, he accepted there would be incidents.

Listing numerous ongoing injustices toward black people, including himself, King said, “Perhaps it is easy for those who have never felt the stinging darts of segregation to say, ‘Wait.’” Along similar lines, King also lamented the “myth concerning time,” by which white moderates assumed that progress toward equal rights was inevitable, so assertive activism was unnecessary.

en.wikipedia.org

No one should promote violence as a tool of political protest, particularly when one side is willing to kill. Note Rev. Dr. King carried a gun himself. Self-protection is an absolute right.

mic.com (more at Mic):

Just like his memorial in Washington, D.C., King’s legacy has been locked in stone. He became a symbol of peace devoid of rebelliousness that defined his life of activism, of the protests and boycotts that totaled 30 arrests in the course of his life. He was a vocal dissident of capitalism and gave contentious speeches like “Can a Christian Be a Communist?” at during the time of the Red Scare and when McCarthyism pervaded America. He spoke out against America’s imperialism and, specifically, its involvement in Vietnam.

“A strong man must be militant as well as moderate,” Dr. King described himself in a lengthy 1964 interview with Playboy. “He must be a realist as well as an idealist. If I am to merit the trust invested in me by some of my race, I must be both of these things.”

The martial arts teach that your main objective in a fight is to incapacitate your opponent as quickly as possible. I think that’s the philosophy of krav maga, at least.

But yeah, some moves can be fatal or seriously damaging to the opponent.

There are absolutely no details in this. The fight is in progress when the video starts for all we know it was an argument over parking spot or something stupid. As for “suspected white supremacist” I’d like a little evidence of that too. Where did this happen, when did it happen, can I look up a local news report. All I see are two guys fighting and one guy almost getting his neck broken.

US-CERT (Homeland Security’s division regarding cyber crime and software weaknesses) has an E-mail list for warnings.

This just popped up in my box. I don’t know anything about Bluetooth or the so-called Internet of Things since I don’t own such devices, so I don’t know if it is important to people who own fantasy-story items like cell phones or refrigerators that talk to computers.

Original release date: September 12, 2017
US-CERT is aware of a collection of Bluetooth vulnerabilities, known as BlueBorne, potentially affecting millions of unpatched mobile phones, computers, and Internet of Things (IoT) devices. A remote attacker could exploit several of these vulnerabilities to take control of affected devices.
US-CERT recommends that users and administrators read Vulnerability Note VU#240311 for more information.

The linked Vulnerability Note at US-CERT seems to call out a great number of vulnerabilities in Bluetooth, for which Microsoft (Windows), Android, iOS, and Linux kernel now have available patches.

They also note at that release:

Check with your device manufacturer to determine if firmware updates will be available.

Phones and other mobile devices in the US running Android are likely to see delayed updates, or possibly never receive updates, due to the complexity of the US mobile ecosystem which typically requires manufacturer and carrier support to push updates.

If an update is not available, affected users should consider the following workaround

Disable Bluetooth on your device

Affected users should consider disabling Bluetooth on affected devices if Bluetooth is unused or unnecessary.

Nursing. One of the nation’s most dangerous professions. Nurses are assaulted or injured far more often than police officers, for example.

The Salt Lake City nurse that was assaulted by a police officer made the national news, because of the abuse of police authority, not the assault.

The Washington Post article has a number of dangerous encounters nurses had over the past few months that didn’t get much coverage, perpetrated by patients. Those would be the encounters that were reported on. (There were likely more.)

Someone suggested here yesterday that since we have a pirate Christian preaching radio station now drowning out our very weak NPR station, if I wanted to listen to this morning’s Morning Edition interview with Hillary Clinton I should stream it from the station.

The station does not do Webcasts, but links to Nebraska Educational Television. NET radio did not Webcast the interview, though they provided a text transcript this evening from NPR.

Unlike the Republicans railing endlessly against the ACA with no plan of their own other than “die quickly,” the Democrats can actually write a plan to vote on.

Part of the problem with politics is people focus on grand themes and not the nitty-gritty of issues. You can absolutely run a campaign on, for example, “Medicare for All” (which fits on a bumper sticker) while writing the plans on how to implement that.

Just got another US-CERT message referencing the bluetooth problem I noted above. Microsoft has now come out with fixes for a wide array of its software in updates, and Adobe has out now fixes for several Adobe programs that run in Windows, Linux, Macintosh, and Chrome OS.

The Bluetooth vulnerability apparently allows an attacker to overtake your operating system through the exploit in Bluetooth.

I’m off to do the appropriate updates to my computer, if for some reason I disappear.

Adobe lists the update as priority 1 (I assume that’s important).

Well, that’s what she did this time. And not for the first time- after writing a letter asking Hillary to run, she withheld her endorsement until the Democratic convention.

As for how the GOP runs against this, the California single-payer bill was estimated to cost $200 billion per year. (California’s entire state budget is about $125 billion for 2017-18.) Extrapolate that to the federal level, and your annual cost is something around $1.5 trillion. (By comparison, all income taxes levied by Uncle Sam raised $1.37 trillion in fiscal 2014.)

One, five zero zero, zero zero zero, zero zero zero, zero zero zero dollars. Per year. Think the Republicans can’t campaign successfully against that? Check the results of elections for the last 40 years.

The real problem is that the Federal government already spends more on medicaid, medicare, and VA per capita than the Canadian government does to provide healthcare for all. That is per capita not for just the people covered by them. The problem is these programs are not allowed to negotiate prices.

That is a fixable problem (also GW Bush’s Medicare Part D). A government that negotiates on behalf of 320,000,000 citizens has a powerful tool.

The fix isn’t easy though, as it requires repealing laws preventing the government from negotiating. (As for the VA, they do negotiate prices.)

I can see why people would turn to Canada or Mexico to get medications when our system is set up to protect corporations and not people.

Canada and Mexico shouldn’t have to subsidise our patients with their taxes, sadly, unless our country fixes our own problems or those countries ban Americans from using their medical care systems, that will continue.

Yes, it absolutely can be done, it should be done, however the problem here is that Sanders is playing into Republican hands by refusing to be upfront and honest about estimated costs. The void in his bill where a funding mechanism should be will now be filled with GOP talking points about how the left loves to spend Americans into debt. It won’t matter that they do the same thing with military spending and slashing social programs that actually boost consumer spending because he’s needlessly handing them ammunition. This is an epic fucking own goal born from Sanders’ lazy refusal to dig into the real meat of budget issues and his narcissistic / Pollyanna-ass faith that his socialist ideas don’t have to be implemented well or with any particular skill to take root.

I just ordered a 90 supply of one of my prescriptions from Canada. 90 tablets cost me less than one tablet here.

I tried that back in the 90’s when MN started a program to let state employees import meds. The meds were seized by Homeland Security and I got a letter from them telling me to stop. When I contacted the state administrator about it, I was told to try it again. I got another letter from Homeland Security, this one much faster than the first one which led me to believe that they’ve created a file for me somewhere saying that I’m a repeat offender of trying to illegally import drugs. It pissed the hell out of me.

re: #174 retired cynic

When my brother was little, he loved to play dressing my dolls. This was over 60 years ago, and my parents may have held their breath, but they didn’t raise a fuss, and he moved on to Superman and Davy Crockett.

It did manifest in later years, however, as he became a very spiffy dresser. Perhaps that was an outgrowth of having a Herb Alpert cover band.

edited for clarity

That was good to start. I was given a doll by my grandmother - a boy wearing farmer’s coveralls - when I complained about my sisters’ dolls. We three all played dolls.

The edit just makes it better making me remember the first time I took Dad’s copy of “Whipped Cream & Other Delights” and dropping it on the turntable.
