We’ll have to find out if it’s true or not, though it would actually be funny if Bing weren’t important enough to buy ads on. But, there’s a point about libertarianism that needs to be made: Thinking that the market will decide leads to unscrupulous people gaming the system. The market is under the influence of anything it cannot control, anything that does not originate inside of it, such as humans.

re: #31 FormerDirtDart

From your link
Earlier this evening, Texas Tech Police made a student welfare check. Upon entering the room, officers found evidence of drugs and drug paraphernalia. Officers brought the suspect to the police station for standard debriefing. During this time, the suspect pulled a gun and shot an officer in the head. The officer is deceased. The suspect fled on foot and is currently still at-large. Texas Tech University campus is on lockdown.

The police didn’t even search him??? before bringing him in for a chat. Guess they haven’t realised that white students may be the ones using the new rules to carry on campus.

The suspect is only 19 and has a criminal record. He wouldn’t have had a concealed carry license. I’m also thinking he grabbed an officer’s gun.

Yeah, but you’re not a Trump-humper. And remember - if you can afford to attend a football game, you’re more than likely a member of the upper crust of society, and that makes you more likely to be a Republican.

It’s seems possible that he could have an unlicensed weapon. It does seem really weird that the police wouldn’t have searched him before taking him in for questioning but, then again, he’s white.

My own pet theory on the fucking manchildren losing their shit over a dipping sauce:

I love Rick and Morty, but I can see how people hate it for Rick’s nihilistic worldview, where nothing matters, people are stupid and therefore anything is permissible when dealing with them. The thing I find so funny about the show is just how the writers make an utterly amoral wreck of a human being into a bit of a novelty.

But he’s supposed to be an ironic character. I still haven’t been able to decide what exactly I love about his character except that his reaction to people and situations is constructed simply to defeat the audience’s expectation of an emotional investment in what happens to his family and the world. It’s a similar dynamic to the gang from ‘It’s Always Sunny’. They’re meant to be reflections of our own worst impulses. Any redemptive qualities they have are kind of a maker’s mark showing them to be utterly fictitious.
The people raging at McDonalds and their staff love Rick because he ultimately is the emotionally dead wisearse who does whatever he pleases that they *wish they were*. Rick is less a comical character than the rugged individualist archetype upon which the worst elements in America model themselves.
In other words, they’re incapable of understanding irony and live very selfish lives without the redeeming maker’s mark meaning they’re all too real.

That’s what I reckon anyway.

Does the community have a building code which defines a “habitable dwelling”. I doubt a garage would meet the requirements and codes to be a permanent residence. Things like running water and a functional toilet and heating system seems to be a universal requirement for living in a structure.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign announcement ad has been blocked by Twitter over a statement the abortion rights opponent makes about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research.

Blackburn, who is running for the seat being opened by the retirement of Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, boasts in the ad that she “stopped the sale of baby body parts.” A Twitter representative told the candidate’s vendors on Monday that the statement was “deemed an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.

I got our arsenic test results back from the state a couple days ago; the wells were 1000% over the legal maximum … guess we’re still stuck using reverse-osmosis units for the foreseeable future.

Got a freebie offer from Netflix - it has been some time since I had an account. So I decided to sign up again.

But am very disinterested. There does not seem to be the volume of material in the back library that there used to be, way back when Netflix was young.

And there is a great overlap to what I can find on Amazon Prime, for what I have interest.

I wonder if people outside the US are finding Netflix more of a value, as I know there are regions-specific content.

Also, I note that the pace of “cord cutting” has picked up, according to some stories. The irony of course is that most people, like me, depend on cable companies for high-speed internet, so the cable companies aren’t hurting for revenue. But the content packagers have to be getting a clue that the old days of bundling channels are fading away.

I’m pretty sure I have not interest in 98% of the channels now offered. I like so many want to watch on-demand very specific content.

We cut our cable TV service about a year ago. We get our internet through our hard line telephone company. Saved us about $80 per month. Even with a download of 7 mps the wife and I can both watch individual movies without buffering.

I agree with your observation about Netflix. Seem like all the Netflix offerings are old B rated movies. Hard to find many of the old classics we would like to watch again.

We do have Amazon Prime and enjoy several of their offerings, i.e. Outlander..
We also enjoy Acorn dot TV. They have a great collection of English, Australian, New Zealand, and Canadian who-done-its such as Inspector Frost, Morse, Inspector Lewis, and Foley’s War. Some of these series have over 100 episodes. Acorn is only $6-8 per month and well worth it.

Tiki Torches (Goes to Juanita Jean’s: The World’s Most Dangerous Beauty Salon):

Guest column by Bryan Bankston -

There are many things the Nazis have ruined. The 1936 Summer Olympics, yelling and gesturing wildly while giving an impassioned speech, the Arc of the Covenant, and the fact that if you dress up as Charlie Chaplin for Halloween, you absolutely cannot take your bowler hat off.

But now that the Nazis are back, they have ruined one of my favorite things. Faux Polynesian kitsch. Yes, my favorite type of illumination while drinking rum out of a coconut waiting for the pig to finish spit-roasting: The tiki torch.

I don’t how the decision was made to utilize this particular variety of cultural appropriation, but I’m guessing one of the Nazis initially suggested the use of regular torches, but the rest of the Nazis were worried that it might confuse people into thinking they were protesting Frankenstein instead of the removal of a racist statue. After one particularly smart-ass Nazi brought up the fact that Frankenstein was the name of the doctor, not the monster, they decided on tiki torches

Fortunately I have a way to make tiki kitsch again, as well as completely changing the optics of the Nazi demonstrations. It’s easy. Replace all confederate statues with tiki statues.

When the Nazis come back to Charleston to protest, as they did a few days ago, this is what it will look like:

The resurgence of far-right and neo-Nazi groups in Australia can be seen as part of a global tilt towards nationalism, in keeping with the European phenomena of Brexit, and the mainstreaming of Le Pen’s Front National in France and Geert Wilders’ Party of Freedom in the Netherlands. Yet the tone and trajectory of Australian ultra-nationalism has been distinctly American and distinctly pro-Trump. The timing also correlates closely with the watershed moments in the brief political career of the US president.

Republican Etiquette Guide (goes to the New York Times), more at the link:

Republicans used to care a lot about how a president comports himself, and whether he acts at all times with the dignity his station demands.

“Is President Obama Disrespecting the Oval Office?” Fox News asked in 2010, with a link to images of Mr. Obama and his aides tossing a football, or eating apples just inches from the Resolute desk.

“Wear a suit coat and tie,” said Andrew Card Jr., President George W. Bush’s former chief of staff, in reaction to pictures of Mr. Obama in shirtsleeves in 2009.

“I do expect him to send the message that people who are going to be in the Oval Office should treat the office with the respect that it has earned over history,” Mr. Card said.

But hey, that was then! In 2017, there’s a whole new bar for tolerable conduct by the commander in chief. Our original guide cataloged several dozen examples. Almost five months later, it’s clear that an update is necessary. This expanded list is meant to ensure that Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and other congressional Republicans never forget what they now condone in a president.

As the nation reels from an opiod epidemic, methamphetamine is the number one threat in Nebraska, accounting for 93% of all drug busts.

Any liberal candidate, whether national or state, seeking votes from Nebraskans, will need to address this problem if they wish to get votes.

starherald.com

» The U.S. Attorney’s Office for Nebraska prosecuted nearly five times as many meth-related cases last year as in 2007, and meth accounted for nearly 93 percent of drug prosecutions last year.

» The Omaha Police Department made 668 meth-related arrests last year, more than twice the number five years earlier.

» The rate of Nebraskans seeking meth treatment was higher in 2015 than in any year back to 2000. Only alcohol sent more people into treatment.

» Meth factors in to more Nebraska child welfare cases than any other drug. Parents of nearly one in three Nebraska foster children use meth.

In the article the writer notes that restrictions on obtaining the products from pharmacies to manufacture meth has resulted in a dramatic decline in mom-and-pop meth labs in Nebraska and Iowa. As such, international cartels have stepped in to flood the states.

Trying to be informative to those who don’t know, Karen Pence resurrected her business she shut down, the critically-important “towel charm” (a doodad you attach to your beach towel or locker room towel so someone else doesn’t confuse it as theirs):

towelcharm.com

A little over a year ago, when the line “Karen Pence, Your Future Second Lady” was just a fun little goof, Jezebel wrote about then-Vice Presidential candidate’s wife’s “Towel Charm” business. Shortly after, the website was shut down, with a message explaining that the business had been put “on hold.” A gaping hole opened up in the universe.

After publishing a blog about crotch charms that claimed—apparently mistakenly—that “That’s My Towel!” Charm, Inc. is currently defunct, it has come to our attention that the charms are, in fact, very much alive, as of an as-yet-undetermined date in 2017. We regret the error.

China is speculating on a military intervention by the USA in North Korea in one of its official military publications,

October 25 is the day that the Chinese People’s Volunteer Army engaged in the first battle against the UN troops on the road between Unsan and Onjoeng, North Pyongyan province, in the Korean War. On October 25, 1959, North Korea erected the Sino-Korean Friendship Tower in Pyongyang to commemorate China’s participation in the Korean War. When Chinese leaders visit Pyongyang, they dedicate flowers here. Symbolizing the date, it is made of 1025 granite and marble stones.

After the Korean War, North Korea and China signed the Sino-North Korea Mutual Aid and Cooperation Friendship Treaty in July 1961. Article 2 states, “China provides military and other assistance without hesitation when North Korea is under armed attack.” It means that if the United States makes a preemptive strike on North Korea, China can automatically intervene as it had done during the Korean War. Chinese scholars argue that North Korea could make a miscalculation because of the treaty and say it needs to be revised or scrapped, but the Chinese government remains silent.

Such a thing as suicide is a terrible thing for family and friends left to deal with; an awful lot of people will blame the person for being “selfish” and an awful lot will blame the family and friends for “not recognising the signs” or “not doing enough.”

I wouldn’t wish that on anyone including her. I have no doubt she is truly torn up inside over that. It very likely isn’t her fault, she likely couldn’t have done a thing to prevent it, and I extend my sympathy toward her.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn’s Senate campaign announcement ad has been blocked by Twitter over a statement the abortion rights opponent makes about the sale of fetal tissue for medical research.

Blackburn, who is running for the seat being opened by the retirement of Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, boasts in the ad that she “stopped the sale of baby body parts.” A Twitter representative told the candidate’s vendors on Monday that the statement was “deemed an inflammatory statement that is likely to evoke a strong negative reaction.

The headline on newsmax reads:

Elon Musk made an offer to Puerto Rico to rebuild its electric grid primarily based on solar power and batteries. Governor Ricardo Rosseló responded favourably.

Currently, the island imports and burns oil to generate electricity. Puerto Ricans have been paying exorbitantly high electric bills for years.

CNN Money adds:

Tesla has built solar energy grids for islands before, such as Kauai in Hawaii. However, that island’s population is about 70,000 people. Puerto Rico has 3.4 million residents.

Musk has previously stepped into other energy crises around the world. In July, he promised to deliver the world’s largest lithium ion battery to help communities in South Australia that have been suffered from power shortages.

Why not arrest a man for his own beating? I mean, it’s not like they’re busy actually pursuing warrants on most of the asshats caught on video during the assault, nor the asshole threatening photogs with a gun during the entire fucking thing.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

A man seen being beaten on video inside the east Market Street Parking Garage on August 12 is now facing a felony charge.

Charlottesville police say a person took out a warrant against Deandre Harris.

Harris is the 20-year-old man who was seen being attacked by a group of white nationalists after crowds dispersed following the “Unite the Right” rally.

He’s being charged with one count of malicious wounding.

The magistrate had a Charlottesville detective verify the facts in the warrant.

Alex Micheal Ramos and Daniel Borden are both being charged with malicious wounding for attacking Harris.

Saudi Arabia is not messing around. They are about to become one of the most well defended nations in the world in terms of anti missile defense, perhaps second only to Israel. THAAD is making bank for Raytheon.

The deal has grown from roughly $13.5B the last time we reported on it in June to over $15B. It includes a whopping 44 launchers, 360 interceptors, 16 fire control and communications stations, and no less than seven AN/TPY-2 radars. Training, support, tools, facilities construction, and even 43 “Prime Mover” transporter trucks are included in the wide spanning, so called “end-to-end” weapons deal.

Keep in mind we are contemplating a second installation for South Korea. Why is Israel not bothered?

The problem I have with these people calling themselves Christian is that I know people who really do work hard at living the teachings of the Christ and yes, I know it’s a minority of us. But where does the “No True Scotsman” fallacy end and where are we allowed to call them out for not being what they claim to be?

(cut)

It is up to Christians to call them out. It is not up to us heathen hellbound non-believers.

I take a person at his or her word: if that person says “I’m a Christian,” I believe them, unless they are called out by other Christians (that never happens).

A great number of Christians believe that acceptance of the Gospels and Jesus is the sole requirement to be a Christian. They are “saved” because they pray for forgiveness (instead of apologising and making amends).

I wonder if he’s ready for Camus yet? That at least would take a similar starting point and actually go someplace positive with it.

Help me out here, only one semester of philosophy, nihilistic sophicism is?

Sort of out of the loop on this one, I know about Rick & Morty - one of the cable networks here shows it late at night - but what’s the deal with the Szechuan Sauce thing? Aside from the R&M tie-in, is it like the greatest sauce in the history of mankind’s culinary achievements or something? Is it measurably better than the bottle of Kikkoman’s Teriyaki Sauce I have lying around? (Sadly, I have to settle for Kikkoman’s, ‘cause I can’t get Yoshida’s in my neck of the woods)

re: #168 Dr Lizardo

So, today I was puttering around downtown in a junk store and lo and behold, lookie what I found!

[Embedded content]

An original 1977 pressing. I couldn’t believe my luck, LOL. And flawless - not a scratch on it. The woman who runs the junk store said she’d had it for quite some time; no one here had ever heard of “Meat Loaf” (aside from the main course). So I got it for about $2.75.

Took it home and blasted it, LOL.

They made a musical out of BOOH. I heard some songs that they played during the commercial sounded like the muzak version.

It made me sad.

Apparently, it is getting good reviews (yes, this is a good review):

Making his UK debut, Polec conceals in his thin, constantly topless frame an immense voice. He’s supported by a uniformly excellent cast - particularly Danielle Steers as Zahara, one of Strat’s pack, and Sharon Sexton as Falco’s wife Sloane providing comic relief.

A giant lattice lurches over the audience in Bausor’s mighty set, a huge Trump-style skyscraper soars into the flytower. Everything is in lurid colours, but smeared in post-apocalyptic grime, like a comic book come to life. Although set in the future, in many ways this feels old-fashioned, like a huge 1980s arena gig, intensified by Patrick Woodroffe’s blazing lighting.

Every moment of awful dialogue (Steinman can write songs, but is pretty weak on character) is a moment when the huge cast is not bashing out some awesome ballad, and the show occasionally suffers for it. The badly balletic choreography - huge lines of dancers all flapping their hands - looks messy and childlike.

But for its shortcomings, this extraordinarily silly production - like Rocky Horror in its self-awareness - is proof that a few stonking songs can sustain a show, and can bring a theatre and its audience thrillingly alive. Bonkers it may be but, hell, it’s pretty brilliant too.

I work with a woman who runs a community center here in Columbus. She is hoping to start a skills program for inner city Columbus folks to learn basic trades.

She has a big old former car dealership building next to and behind her center she is going to rehab and use as the target to use for the training. Her hope is to rehab the building and use it as an arts center and training center for inner city residents. This would be in addition to her community center she already operates.

Anyway, The Columbus Foundation, a trusted and long-operating local foundation that coordinates many Columbus Ohio charities, is having what they are calling The Big Give. They have 1.3 million dollars they are going to be giving as prorated matching funds to any funds the local charities raise in a 24 hour period.

If anyone is feeling charitable and would like to give to her fund I would greatly appreciate it. She has a big old heart and is always doing something for others.

Here is a link to The Columbus Foundation Big Give page for her Community Threads Inc. center. There is a minimum $20 gift. It started at 10 AM Eastern and runs for 24 hours.

Germans really love that kind of bombastic, operatic rock. Meat Loaf was a big hit here.

My ex-wife smacked into a retaining wall at around 35 mph in our Smart. She was able to walk away. But the safety cell was bent and the car had to be written off.

(yet another thing we have in common, brutha from another mutha)

Retaining walls don’t quite give the same way a deer does.

That said, any car would probably need to be written off after hitting a wall at that speed; the fact your wife walked away from that wreck shows how well the car is designed to protect its passengers.

Yeah I should have brought my kindle. Oh well. Know this now if I ever go back to this office.

I have a Kindle app on my phone which is always with me. I wouldn’t go anywhere without it.

When I used to travel for work (average 10 days when going overseas), pre Kindle app days (when the Kindles were new and very expensive - and you needed a separate reading light to read it in the dark, which always made me nuts, but I digress), when I was traveling overseas, I would bring ten books packed into my luggage. I always loved schlepping a few extra pounds of luggage, it made travel so much fun. (gag)

Having the Kindle app on my phone was the biggest game changer for me (who reads on average over 250 books a year).

Precisely:

Congress could act if it was willing to, but it won’t because the GOP is craven. The only thing to really force their hand is to embarrass them enough to jeopardize their re-elections.

Wow, just came across this load. I guess it is open season. Saw this at an irreverent site about Hollywood stars and famous people that is sometimes fun to read.

Just another political beating in America.

Page Six .com - Insider claims Bill Clinton is ‘heartsick’ over Hillary’s book tour

Edward Klein, who has written several books about the Clintons and Kennedys, has a hotly anticipated book, “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump,” out Oct. 30.

In the meantime, he reveals that Hillary Clinton’s finger-pointing book, “What Happened” — which is chock-full of excuses for her shocking election loss to Donald Trump — may be a best seller, but Bill Clinton tossed his copy in the trash can and is heartsick over his wife’s current blame-game book tour.

“Before Hillary sent the manuscript to her publisher, she gave it to Bill to read, and he made major changes with a red pencil,” said a close Clinton family friend. “But she refused to even read his corrections, and he got so furious that he tossed the entire manuscript into the garbage.

“He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities in a person who aspired to be a world leader,” the friend continued.

“He hated the title because calling it ‘What Happened’ would only make people say, ‘You lost.’ He urged her to postpone the pub date and rewrite the book, but she yelled at him and said, ‘The book is finished and that’s how it’s going to be published.’ “

Since their fight last summer over the book, Bill’s negative feelings about Hillary’s memoir have grown even more intense as she’s used her book tour to blame her loss on Russian hackers, former FBI Director James Comey and women who didn’t vote for her.

Klein writes in his upcoming book that Bill warned Hillary a month before the election that she was losing and that she needed to campaign in the Rust Belt states.

“She told him he was delusional,” Klein writes.

“Bill’s criticism — and what Hillary sees as his lack of sympathy — has driven a wedge between them,” the friend said. “They haven’t been speaking for months. They’ve been communicating through friends and lawyers.”

“Ed is a sad man,” a spokesman for Hillary said. “And a pathetic liar,” added Bill’s rep.

Warrant: Accused shooter confesses to killing Texas Tech officer

A secondary officer said East was completing paperwork at a computer in a briefing room as Daniels reportedly faced the opposite direction of East, slightly offset from one another.

The secondary officer reportedly left the room when he heard a “loud bang.” When he returned to the briefing room, East had been mortally wounded, with an apparent gunshot wound.

“A .45-caliber RP shell casing was located near Officer East,” the report states. “(The secondary officer on scene) also advised Officer East’s police body camera was missing and Officer East’s pistol was in his holster.”

Daniels had not been handcuffed.

Michigan’s chief medical executive, Dr. Eden Wells, was charged with involuntary manslaughter and misconduct in office Monday for her role in allowing inadequately treated water from the Flint River to cause an outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in the city. In addition to the city’s lead-poisoned water, the Legionnaires’ outbreak was one more delightful result of the state’s attempt to save a few million dollars by switching the city’s water source to the Flint River without adequately treating the water to prevent corrosion of the city’s water pipes. At least 12 people died and 79 became sick. Wells had already been charged with obstruction of justice and making a false statement in the state’s investigation of the Flint water crisis, and faces up to 15 years in prison on the new charges.

OT: In the bevy of bills I mailed out with the water sample this morning was a donation to Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.

Last year, I called them asking for the local address so I could send them a cheque to support their programme to provide services to those who could not pay for them.

Planned Parenthood’s office was suspicious of why some guy out in the western part of the state would call them asking for their address, but after several calls to me (and I assume verifying who I said I was) sent me a letter with their mail address.

Last week they sent a thank you letter for my donation from the previous year, to which I responded with another donation. (The nearest PP clinic within this state is four hundred miles from here.)

I don’t want the death penalty used. Should he be found guilty after a fair trial, I want him to spend the rest of his very long life in prison without possibility of parole (cheaper than death penalty appeals anyway). Lock him away and let society forget about him.

That Puerto Rico isn’t front page stuff every goddamned day is because media outlets simply aren’t putting resources into covering it (you have to locate staff there). And if you don’t have news, you’re not reporting on it.

Instead, we’re covering arrests at a McDonalds because they don’t have Schezuan sauce.

That is exactly what I was talking about in #179

Poor Bob Corker. He says what needs to be said about the Water Buffalo (Thanks Keith) President probably hoping to give some opening cover for other GOP Congressfolk to speak up.

Nothing.

He’s left hanging on the clothesline to dry.

Yet reports say behind the scenes he is getting a lot of attaboy compliments about speaking up.

And then they all run off to their offices to come up with some nonsense about how great it is that Corker speaks up…but only for himself and that they don’t see what good comes out of poking the Big Orange Balloon.

They’ve all been Trumped and Bannoned.

I guess Trump grabbed them all and they are too embarrassed to admit they are powerless to stand up to any of it.

What a pack of losers. These people can’t lead shit. They all need to go.

On Sunday, I had the opportunity to enter a drawing for a local gift certificate. It took me about three minutes to remember my zip code. I’ve lived in the same zip code since 1995. I actually have two, one for the residence, one for the P.O. box. They are one digit apart, and I couldn’t remember either one.

This morning I woke up and thought it was Sunday for a while. I think I wanted do-overs.

The fact that I can remember my forgetfulness from two days ago is a GOOD thing. I’m ready for the rest of the week, whenever that happens.

Not excusing the idiots at all. But, I can tell you that Rick & Morty is all over the place. I got a complement on my R&M shirt at a small used bookstore from a woman close to my age (I’m almost 48). This is the bookstore you go to in my town to find the books the schools want you to have, like Shakespeare or Steinbeck.

Edit: I guess the point of this is that it would have taken a simple google search to find out just how popular the show is. The fact that no one in marketing had enough of a clue to alert everyone to what might happen (shortage, not riots) speaks to how inadequate that side was.
