Can’t bother reading the actual book. Narratives might be destroyed. And if he wants to bust on Clinton for the EC thing. I’ll point out Trump trashed the EC in 2012 and is so insecure he’s trying to use a bogus fraud commission to get himself the popular vote but let’s whine about Hillary having opinions.

Clinton beat both Sanders and Trump in votes. One isn’t told to shut up ever by the pundits and the other is President. Yeah I don’t blame Hillary if she has some anger. Two men in Sanders and Trump who talked down to her and whose supporters were sexist to her. Two men who she’s much more qualified for the presidency than they are too.

Well, the world is imposing an informal set of sanctions on the USA now. Thanks, Stein voters (and those who didn’t vote at all because both sides are the same):

New figures released by the U.S. Department of Commerce show a drop in international visitors to the United States by close to 700,000 in the first quarter of 2017 compared to the previous year. European countries were down 10.1 percent, and Mexico was off 7.1 percent in the quarter. The largest drops were from the Middle East and Africa, though they represent a much smaller percentage of overall travel to the United States.

Overall, 697,791 fewer foreigners visited the United States in the first three months of the year, down 4.2 percent to 15.8 million. According to Tourism Economics, a branch of Oxford Economics based in Wayne, Pa., that analyzes travel data, the drop represents a loss of nearly $2.7 billion in spending.

As points of comparison, the first quarter of 2013, after the re-election of Barack Obama, international tourism was up 6.4 percent, and the first quarter of 2009, after President Obama’s first election (and during global recession that began at the end of 2008), it was down 14.3 percent.

More at The New York Times.

From the last thread:

re: #228 Patricia Kayden

Which liberal has advocated that? They are so ridiculous.

In reference to Mike Cernovich and Alex Jones talking about paedophilia.

The point is propaganda, and the method used here has been very effectively used in the past.

The two talk about “liberals supporting paedophiles” or being paedophiles themselves (never mind Dennis Hastert). They repeatedly in their video hammer the words “paedophile” and “liberal” next to each other multiple times in their segment.

The objective is to link the two words in their listeners minds. It is very similar to the type of propaganda Rwanda used on its radio stations immediately before the genocide there.

Thanks, Reagan.

While genocide might not be these two fools objective, this is the sort of propaganda that leads to it.

Remember the incessant charges of importing rapist Somalis by the Chobani Yoghurt company? The attacks on the Comet Ping Pong pizzaria that ended in a shooting (Jones and Cernovich hammered that endlessly)? It’s a shame the owner of the pizzaria didn’t wind up with a lien on Jones’s soul that Satan would have to pay off before claiming it.

(To be clear I do not believe the supernatural stuff—the downside of lack of faith, I guess.)

This sort of speech has a goal, and it is not a “conservative viewpoint” (unless that viewpoint is genocide of liberals).

Which browser are you using? Firefox recently adopted a change that employs HTML5 rather than Adobe Flash (and disabled a whole lot of other plugins). If you updated Firefox, then it killed the plugin for Adobe Flash.

There are tutorials on the Web to fix what Mozilla broke, but Mozilla says they will not support the plugin technology used in the past any more. (The claim is plugins can be security risks to the software.)

Given this progress, and in collaboration with several of our technology partners - including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Mozilla - Adobe is planning to end-of-life Flash.

Certain periodicals are still (yes, I know!) pretending that the Russia issue is a creation of Hillary Clinton’s delusions:

washingtonpost.com

The Trump campaign/Russian collusion myth is now part of the Hillarysphere belief system. It is becoming to Democrats what the “birther” movement was to Republicans. Some Republicans, including Trump, decided to peddle the notion that former president Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States rather than accept the truth that he was our legitimate president. They knew it got them airtime and applause with the predictable audiences, and it gave them a form of political street cred with people you’d rather not argue with anyway. Sometimes, on both sides of the aisle, it is easier just to pretend to be as certain as they are.

As for the writer of that pile of both-siderism:

Ed Rogers is a contributor to the PostPartisan blog, a political consultant and a veteran of the Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush White Houses and several national campaigns. He is the chairman of the lobbying and communications firm BGR Group, which he founded with former Mississippi governor Haley Barbour in 1991.

I Have Found America’s Worst Columnist (Goes to The New Yorker).

Ed Rogers is a Washington lobbyist, and, for reasons I have never been able to discern, a regular op-ed columnist for the Washington Post. Rogers may indeed be the worst op-ed columnist in America — certainly the worst one writing for a respectable publication.

Rogers’s published work suffers from a series of fatal deficiencies. First, as founding member of a lobbying firm with a wide-ranging portfolio and a presumably enormous income, literally everything he writes suffers from crippling conflicts of interest. Second, he is a terrible writer whose arguments lack any originality, persuasive power or, quite often, even facial plausibility. One of the unique trademarks of a Rogers column is outsourcing the work to other, better columnists (which is to say, virtually all of them). For instance:

re: #26 BeachDem

“Nomiki (fucking) Konst, told Newsweek that she believed the senator from Vermont was responding to “a leadership deficit in the Democratic Party” by giving the address as Westminster College, rather than attempting to bolster his prospects for another run.”

I don’t care what Bernie does or does not do, this black female will not vote for him in the Dem primary here in GA if he runs in 2020. Why? Because I hold him largely responsible for the rift that was created in the Democratic Party last year. Others may see him as a popular leader, or the #1 leader among Dems in America, but no one ever asked for my opinion. I know quite a few black females here in my Middle GA city, and none of them voted for him in our primary last year. The one thing about black persons in the south is that we talk to each other everywhere, even if we don’t know each other on a personal level. No one I talked to voted for Bernie in the primary here. I’m not saying some didn’t vote for him, but no one I’ve met in my interactions. Plus, Bernie talks about “oppressed, financially struggling working class whites” but seems to have little concern for others in the Democratic coalition, and I’m not only referring to blacks. I see him as ego-driven and as someone whose head has become swollen because he managed to spout a few memes last year that appealed to a vocal few in our party. Dude is a cult leader and doesn’t seem to realize it. He should not be able to use the Democratic Party to advance his goals. I am totally against this. Strongly against this. We were gracious enough to permit him to run on our party ticket last year, and he sowed discord every step of the way, and after the primaries, he declared he was no long a member of the Democratic Party. This was a clear example to me of user behavior, and I refuse to be used by him or his supporters.

Manafort Planning to Leave US as Mueller’s Team Prepares to Indict Him in Russia Probe (goes to Raw Story).

The Raw Story article cites sources such as the New York Times but also uses weasel words like “may.”

That said, if Mueller actually has something to indict over, I expect to see some folk flee the country like this was some sort of tinpot dictatorship.

Great New Book Reveals Liberal Women Don’t Luve Their Wee Babbies Because They’re Shallow Hoors (goes to Wonkette):

Oh, look, it is yet another book here to explain that people, particularly women, who like sex a lot but do not tether their sexuality within a religiously-approved marriage, are really shallow and unable to experience any real joy in life outside their own selfish orgasms. This time, though, it’s not merely a moral scold telling us that: It’s a sociologist, Mark Regnerus of the University of Texas, who brings some data to his moral scolding in the boffo new anti-boffing Cheap Sex: The Transformation of Men, Marriage, and Monogamy. It made a heck of an impression on confirmed Junior Anti-Sex League member Rod Dreher, whose fan letter at The American Conservative is titled “Liberal Women Are Lustier.”

I’ll admit that I thought Bernie entering the primaries was good. The GOP had like 19 candidates and I thought some competition on this side would be good and it was the DNC that let him in. By the time of Wisconsins primary though I changed my mind on him and instead of voting for Bernie I felt that the threat of a GOP victory was too close and of course felt that Bernie would go down in flames in the general. Now, I wish the DNC had told him to pound sand and get his own movement going ala Nader. What a fucking disaster.

That is the “choice” part of “pro-choice.” She gets to choose to leave her living children motherless.

The five-year survival rate is about 35%. The survival rate without treatment is about 0%.

I don’t claim to be a physician (nor do I play one on television), but the survival rate of 1 pound preemies is also close to zero.

A huge problem with (white) liberals today is that we feel that somehow we are on equal footing with conservatives and that somehow, we can use the process to play games with purity. This is not the case at all. There is no equal footing and there never has been and if the liberals had bothered to consult the minority communities that are vulnerable, that message might have got out. There may be Soros or Musk or whoever but make no mistake.

One thing of note, considering the number of women versus men in this country, if they were all willing to work together in elections, the minority of men could never assert their derp about abortion or contraception or any of the other things used by conservatives to control women.

There are just enough women who are willing to grasp at power for themselves though that conservative men maintain power.

While one could blame so-called Bernie Bros or Steinbots or whatever for the disaster on 11/9, there were plenty enough women that were willing to go along with this nonsense that actively and enthusiasticly voted for someone like Mike Pence: A man who would happily take their rights.

On the other hand, maybe The Advocate in Baton Rouge is just trying to show which militia organisation radicalised him.

He stands accused of killing two African-American men.

Because He Was an Eagle Scout, Media Loves a White Man Who Gunned Down Two Black Men in Louisiana

The Advocate wrote an entire piece about how shocked Gleason’s friends and family are that he’s been accused of this crime. It starts off like this:

Kenneth Gleason graduated from high school an honor student and became an Eagle Scout in 2012, and, on Tuesday, he was arrested on two counts of first-degree murder — in the apparently random shooting deaths of two black men.

Longtime friends reacted to Gleason’s arrest with shock and disbelief, saying they never suspected their friend could commit such violent acts.

Apparently, we are supposed to be surprised that a white man who was an Eagle Scout could be a murderer. The article goes on to inform the reader that Gleason graduated cum laude from a magnet high school and was a stellar student until he inexplicably dropped out of Louisiana State University.

L’shana tova from the Resistance in the NYC metro area. Trump’s again bullying/blustering about things he can’t comprehend, and our enemies/rivals are defying Trump’s threats because they know Trump hasn’t got a clue what he’s doing and that bullying/bluster isn’t the same as leadership.

Not only is North Korea threatening to fire a nuclear weapon over the Pacific in a test of their technology, but Iran’s now threatening Israel with a new long range missile of their own.

All the while, Trump’s warning that he’s going to say Iran’s not in compliance with the 6 party deal (no evidence Iran has violated the nuclear deal) and he’s in a daily dalliance with North Korea in a war of words that Trump doesn’t even comprehend.

Trump keeps making threats that he can’t back up without engaging in massive destruction of populations that have no control over what happens. The GOP wont take steps to rein in Trump, and his own admin are bunch of sycophants, know-nothings, and extremists whose worldview is shared with Trump.

But Tom Price in particular, given people like James Hodgkinson and Jimmy Kimmel, should particularly stay out airports. My goodness, I tweeted out that I had no problem with this and was bombarded by angry leftists saying they had a right to let their voices be heard and confront Tom Price. So yes, they are admitting they want to confront him at the airport, which would just inconvenience everyone else. But at least they’d feel good about themselves.

Well, we reached the end of the season for “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

One thing of note, considering the number of women versus men in this country, if they were all willing to work together in elections, the minority of men could never assert their derp about abortion or contraception or any of the other things used by conservatives to control women.

There are just enough women who are willing to grasp at power for themselves though that conservative men maintain power.

While one could blame so-called Bernie Bros or Steinbots or whatever for the disaster on 11/9, there were plenty enough women that were willing to go along with this nonsense that actively and enthusiasticly voted for someone like Mike Pence: A man who would happily take their rights. Those women voters who voted for Trumpence were happy with that.

I was mistaken for thinking the majority women enjoy would have been the deciding factor in putting Hillary into the White House.

The fact many White Women helped put the pussy grabber in the office made zero sense to me.

“Nomiki (fucking) Konst, told Newsweek that she believed the senator from Vermont was responding to “a leadership deficit in the Democratic Party” by giving the address as Westminster College, rather than attempting to bolster his prospects for another run.”

I don’t care what Bernie does or does not do, this black female will not vote for him in the Dem primary here in GA if he runs in 2020. Why? Because I hold him largely responsible for the rift that was created in the Democratic Party last year. Others may see him as a popular leader, or the #1 leader among Dems in America, but no one ever asked for my opinion. I know quite a few black females here in my Middle GA city, and none of them voted for him in our primary last year. The one thing about black persons in the south is that we talk to each other everywhere, even if we don’t know each other on a personal level. No one I talked to voted for Bernie in the primary here. I’m not saying some didn’t vote for him, but no one I’ve met in my interactions. Plus, Bernie talks about “oppressed, financially struggling working class whites” but seems to have little concern for others in the Democratic coalition, and I’m not only referring to blacks. I see him as ego-driven and as someone whose head has become swollen because he managed to spout a few memes last year that appealed to a vocal few in our party. Dude is a cult leader and doesn’t seem to realize it. He should not be able to use the Democratic Party to advance his goals. I am totally against this. Strongly against this. We were gracious enough to permit him to run on our party ticket last year, and he sowed discord every step of the way, and after the primaries, he declared he was no long a member of the Democratic Party. This was a clear example to me of user behavior, and I refuse to be used by him or his supporters.

What bothers me is he wants to blame the Democrats for losing the WWC vote and doesn’t want to admit that prejudice from that group plays a role. He also ignores that working class minorities still strongly support the party. Plus I think the way he dismisses the concerns of minority voters is really bothersome. And he’s definitely running in 2020. Hopefully he won’t be even close to being nominated.

The only thing I can think of about the numbers of white women who voted for Nude Teen Pageant Contestant Examiner and the reincarnation of RJ Rushdoony for VP is they don’t think they’ll come for them, or they will somehow share power with conservative men.

And the presence of or lack of a silencer in this case would have changed things how? Despite Hollywierd, a silencer is more like a muffler that reduces noise at the firing point but can not make a firearm completely silent or - if the projectile is fired at supersonic speeds - hide the sonic boom at all.

And that doesn’t even go into the various European countries where firearms are much more heavily regulated than the US but where they REQUIRE silences for use on hunting firearms to hold down the noise of them.

Good for London.

bbc.com

Throughout its short, tempestuous life, Uber has clashed with regulators around the world - and more often than not it has come out on top.

Its tactic has often been to arrive in a city, break a few rules, and then apologise when it’s rapped over the knuckles. Some regulators have backed down, others have run the company out of town.

In London, despite protests from angry taxi drivers, the company has had a relatively easy ride until now.

But a wave of bad publicity about its corporate culture, its lax attitude to checks on its drivers and its treatment of this freelance army seems to have spurred TfL [Transport for London, the regulatory body] into action.

Make no mistake, Uber will use every legal avenue to fight this ban. It will argue that consumers, in the shape of the millions of mainly young Londoners who rely on its service, will be seriously let down if it can no longer operate.

But the courts will have to balance that with the serious concerns about public safety raised by TfL.

The issue is primarily that silencers can fox the shot finding systems some police departments use, as well as the idea that silencers do in fact make the report of a gun significantly lower (limiting witnesses who hear a shot). While they are not really as depicted in spy movies or such, they do make the police’s job harder.

Aack. Just got off the telephone with the state water regulator asking why I haven’t gotten well tests and reverse osmosis unit water samples into the state yet. Turns out that surgery coupled with a car wreck immediately afterwards and the doctor telling me don’t mess with chemicals like chlorine and nitric acid are not excuses under state law.

Lab gets the water samples by Friday or else.

I guess I will take my still-bleeding and swollen hand out to do those samples, and spend the day in the village office Saturday trying to call people around town to nail them down to get in their houses to get this done.

Part of the problem is that when a water sample is taken, the time is measured in hours that it is considered good. They must be mailed by express mail from here to get to Lincoln four hundred miles away. So if I get some people who say Monday is okay, others who say Tuesday, and others who say Wednesday, I am stuck doing three mailings. (Samples are not allowed to arrive on Saturday.)

All the while a lot of American’s are watching Ken Burns’s VIETNAM.

Last night was brutal. Very hard to watch.

Meanwhile the clock is still ticking & the bodies keep coming home from the even bigger waste that is Afghanistan. I told a good friend (then, now a long since heard from wingnut) that we’d still be there 20 years later when Bush started that mess. The only thing I got wrong is that John need not fear the draft since he’s got a 4F for mental reasons locked up tight.

But how many more decades and how many more lives will we waste there while pretending we learned anything from the Carnage and Waste of the American War of 1955 to 1975?

So the North Koreans are threatening an atmospheric nuke test in the Pacific……putting a nuke on a missile and lobbing it into an area of the Pacific Ocean - hopefully, an empty one. Of course, we should hope that their missile-guidance systems doesn’t send it somewhere like Manila or Cebu City or something like that.

I find it hard to believe anyone would be that crazy. But hey……..you never know. There’s always the Vela Incident, which to the best of my knowledge, has never been fully solved.

Why am I thinking bad thoughts about John McCain reading your comment?

Maybe it has something to do with he could have done so much to teach this country about why being the world’s police force was not a good thing. He had the background to speak to it unlike many.

About the only real “lessons” the US learned from Vietnam were:
1. It’s politically dangerous to draft citizens for an unpopular war.
2. Don’t get involved in open-ended interventions*, but if you do,
make sure it’s with a volunteer military (see lesson 1).

*I’m not sure the original (2002) intervention in Afghanistan was intended to last as long as it has. Too bad, but reality has a nasty habit of getting its own way all too often….

I don’t like McCain at all but he was a tough sob and Trump’s remarks last year were so fucking disgusting. How any vet supported Trump after that astounded me.

To be truthful I don’t remember. By 1972 the Lottery was not quite the same as it was for you. They were drawing numbers, but there was very little drafting by that time. I guess my number made me feel like I wasn’t going to be drafted so I forgot about it all as quickly as I could.

Heh, I still remember getting a call from an Army recruiter wondering if I would be interested in signing up. I told him I was going to art college to be a communications/advertising graphic artist. He said the Army provided training in that field.

I told him painting stars and ID numbers on military vehicles was not for me. I don’t think he liked my answer. The conversation ended quickly.

A good friend of mine declared conscientious objection and ‘til the day he passed away 6 years ago he thought that had been listed on his records and held him back from loans, jobs, etc. I’ve heard others that did the same say the same.

Outlast? Nope. Still very much there. I was forced to register while stationed in Germany with the Army in 1983. Then last week when applying for a job with the USPO, I had to go online with at the Selective Service website and look up my registration number to prove I had registered.

As best I recall (and this off the top of my now-aging head), the annual draft “lottery” was indeed a random draw by birthday, for qualifying 18-yr-old men in the appropriate “class”. I think each birthdate was picked (Feb. 29 dudes were SOL and lumped in with Feb 28, IIRC) and given a number 1-365: low numbers were prioritized for inductions according to each years’ manpower needs, high-numbered guys might escape altogether. And not to mention -
as in my own case - other deferments also applied (until expired) to keep potential conscripts out of the pool.

Current conservative thinking will tell you those bridges and dams need to be maintained by the states.

If you live in a poor state, get out now. There will not be health insurance. There will be no infrastructure maintenance. There will be no rebuilding after a major storm. There will be no good colleges and schools. There will be no regulations.

There will be moving to decent states putting additional burden on their programs and budgets and 50 or so years down the road the U.S. will be a hell hole.

It is dangerous to think you have the ultimate ideology. and still i do “believe” that some things are naturally, not culturally true. i wonder if that would be enough to overpower a tremendous effort - overt, covert or “just the way it is” to be made to think or act a certain way

i hate to think that my eternal essence - whatever that is - could have normalized hate and bigotry toward others - “even” “merely” the low level kind (as opposed to outright violence)

meanwhile, way back when, i grew up in a mostly white area. there were like 7 black kids in my junior high school. i was friends with all of them. to me they were people, just like me. until it was probably two years or more before someone had to point out to me that they were in fact black. didnt change anything between me and them. still -
i was no longer color blind/ignorant and i’ve been forever pissed at that.

The poll is the first to date of the proposed legislation, which would cripple Obamacare’s exchanges and sharply cut long-term Medicaid spending while also taking billions of funding from blue states that implemented Obamacare and giving it to red ones that did not.

I wonder how many of that 24% who support this crappy legislation even have clue #1 what it will do. I’m thinking that number is made up of people who are wealthy enough to not worry and ultra-Republicans that love it because they love everything the GOP does no matter if it kills them or not.

I still haven’t watched Ken Burns Vietnam. I will eventually but I really dread it.

I think that Johnson, Nixon and the rest of the war criminals who constituted the leadership at the time were convinced that American patriotism was an endless ocean of gullibility from which they could draw the blood that fueled their schemes and adventures.

Unimportant. It kills Obamacare, except Ayn Rand Paul says it doesn’t.

Not sure if anyone has heard, but a certain celebrity imam in the U.S. (from here in Dallas, actually) has been exposed as a sexual deviant of the Trump kind.

Like the Evangelical Christians who rushed to defend Trump, I’m seeing their Muslim counterparts come to his defense, say it’s all a fake, and say we shouldn’t be exposing his sins to the rest of the world /facepalm

Awww heck, they were just too early in their thinking. They were off by 45 or so years and they needed a Fox News and Rush Limbaugh.

Speaking of Houston weather, how was your business?? I just remembered your comment from when Harvey was ongoing, saying it might be in one of the flood zones…?

re: #229 Interesting Times

We’re close to where Buffalo Bayou flows downtown, but the flood crest didn’t go high enough to flood the place. During hurricane Ike, high winds peeled the roof back and filled the offices with several inches of rain, so we were prepared for another recovery like that, but Harvey was mostly a flood event here.

re: #167 unproven innocence

Video footage of his plane falling, McCain being retrieved from water, hospitalization, and a couple minutes or so of him speaking to reporter(s?) from a hospital bed soon after medical treatment for a broken leg, two broken arms, etc. Documentary mentioned that shortly after this interview, he was beaten by his captors, apparently for not showing sufficient gratitude on camera for the “fine” treatment he’d received as a POW so far.

Not all German pilots who crashed in the UK during the war survived their first contact with the British population.

McCain was beaten and tortured by the North Vietnamese army. They also saved his life.
