Golfing can be dangerous, I suppose, but I’m willing to let nature take its course. I would like him to resign for medical reasons. I don’t care if they are true or false. If he uses it to beat the rap, I promise I won’t complain (much).

I firmly believe in the rule of law, and therefore that it is not the job of a victim to design or inflict punishment. Right now this belief is hard to hold, but necessary.

Please read what I said and you tell me what’s wrong with it.

I am not actively wishing for anyone’s death, even Trump’s.

However, I’ll say it again; as with the Darrow quote, if Trump bought it from natural causes or because of the shitty diet he has cultivated over his lifetime, I wouldn’t weep for him at all, because he really is a fucking dumpster fire of a human being who, right now, is actively hurting and killing our fellow human beings (and countrymen) through purposeful neglect and incompetence.

This is the box I built to control the lights for halloween. I can use a tablet with a terminal emulator to control it. The outside of the box has eight outlets to plug lights into. The only thing I have not been able to get to work is bluetooth. I was hoping to be able to relay to some bluetooth speakers, but I’ll just run an aux cable out.

Now, I just need to get a couple of songs, and make the lights go off an one while they play.

Next year, I will make the box smaller.

OK, I’m going to show my age here. The first one I loved was You’ll Never Get Rich (Phil Silvers Sgt. Bilko) Another one was Mr. Adams and Eve with Howard Duff and Ida Lupino as a pair of celebrities who had no clue about being normal. Next was Dobie Gillis especially the early episodes with Tuesday Weld and Warren Beatty. Get Smart had me in stitches. Then came All In The Family which really broke the mold. Everyone watched Monty Python when I was in college. Sledge Hammer was in the mold of Get Smart with its insanity. Since then, I rarely watch anything on the networks. Seems the cutting edge shows are now on the premium channels.

AFAIK, the first place I heard ‘farkarkte’ was in The Blues Brothers, where Steve Lawrence’s character Maury Sline says to Jake and Elwood in the sauna, “you’re still wearing those farkarkte suits”.

I gathered that the word was Yiddish, but still wondered what that meant for years; when I found out, I chuckled a bit, because Sline was saying Jake and Elwood’s clothes were lousy (or shitty). From there, Madeline Kahn’s telling-off of Hedley Lamarr in Blazing Saddles made much more sense ;-)

I could never get into MASH and I think it’s because of several guys I knew were killed in Vietnam. Dad had a second job as a welding teacher during the 60s and his assistant Jimmy (cannot remember his last name) was drafted but he decided to go into the Marines instead. Jimmy was killed during basic training when there was an accident at the rifle range. Dad took Jimmy’s death real hard. I don’t think he ever got over it. There were a couple guys who went to school with my sisters. One was named Buck, he went to Vietnam, 2 weeks later he was killed. Another was Jerry who had a crush on my sister. Jerry was killed in action as well. My cousin Mark was in Cambodia during the war I sighed a big relief when he came home. Only wish I could remember the other guys full names.

I tried to watch the first episode of MASH but it just brought back those sad memories.

The FPoB episode where Will and Carlton get pulled over in some backwater for “driving while black” in Carl’s partner’s Mercedes and thrown in jail is one of the best “social commentary” episodes I think I’ve ever watched for any show, let alone a sitcom.

Carl’s righteous anger at the cops when he finds out and goes to the station to bail them out is powerful stuff.

I can absolutely understand how it’d be difficult to watch for someone who lived through that time and lost friends and family.
It used to air every weekday evening around sunset when I was a kid and between the theme song and the tragic notes, though I laughed (and later on came to appreciate Catch 22 because of it) I was always depressed when the credits rolled.
Worst parts were when they’d just lost another patient and the call would go out on the tannoy that more choppers were inbound.

You can’t even list one black country that you people care enough about to include in your list of illegal aliens [actually, a list of countries that daca beneficiaries came from], let alone black US citizens, who you people hate the most.

Though less than one fifth the size of the US, UK television produces more quality shows.

I’ve been watch a few episodes of UK house-building shows, and it strikes me how there is, if one watches carefully with a critical eye, the influence of American commercialism rubbing up against more traditional British cultural conservatism.

I suspect that the influence of what is thought of as “American” - from our movies and TV - continues to force UK television towards the more commercial.

I understand that the BBC is a government institution and it has played an outsized role in the UK television (and before that, radio). We’ve never had the equivalent here.

Oh, I don’t know about that. PBS has done some wonderful stuff, from Sesame Street, to the Ken Burns’ docs, to American Experience, to Frontline.

But they have never done entertainment like sitcoms and drama, not competing with broadcast or cable. For that, they have imported shows, mostly from the Beeb.

Then again, if Americans were taxed $190/year to have a TV in their house, they’d riot.

I guess my point is that PBS was added, as an adjunct especially for rural communities, after commercial TV was already the American way.

And while PBS serves as an analogy to the BBC in so far as being a provider of educational programs, PBS has never been positioned as the keeper of American culture, whatever that latter may be.

And, PBS has never had much of a market share, while the BBC was a practical monopoly for some time.

Even contemporary UK companies like ITV are still influenced by the cultural heritage of the BBC.

I guess my point is that PBS was added, as an adjunct especially for rural communities, after commercial TV was already the American way.

And while PBS serves as an analogy to the BBC in so far as being a provider of educational programs, PBS has never been positioned as the keeper of American culture, whatever that latter may be.

And, PBS has never had much of a market share, while the BBC was a practical monopoly for some time.

Even contemporary UK companies like ITV are still influenced by the cultural heritage of the BBC.

I completely agree with everything in this post.

Had to park my van on the side street. 15 minutes until we start… Went out to discuss with myself shirt or T shirt and here’s this old guy holding on to signpost next to my van and like if he isn’t he flies off into space. I’m coming… But then I realize about 5 or 6 locals who know, and the one girl says “Eddie? If we drive you home, you won’t throw up in the car will you?” I think they’ve saved this guy at least one other time. Fucking Saints. Saints. This boy would not have made it 20 yards until he spun into space. Saints.
Meanwhile later at the Bat Cave….

Current gasoline prices in this part of Germany are around €1.33 per liter, or $5.93 per gallon. Only real difference in price is taxes. Americans would go to war before paying that much for gasoline.

re: #93 teleskiguy

We’re paying $2.91 for mid grade here on the south Oregon coast. I do pay extra ($4.00/gal) to run a higher octane non-ethanol in our old Mustang because I got tired of rebuilding the carburetor every two years. Ethanol resistant parts only resist ethanol for so long! I’ve been running on the same rebuild with straight gas for eight years without a problem, just adjust it spring and fall. It’s worth it and the car really likes the extra timing (MSD-adjustable at dash while running) and I would pay more to keep running it just for the peace of mind.

I drive the car just about every day but it’s mostly local.

I’m pretty sure you have to go to the local airport (third largest in Colorado, BTW) to get above 91 octane gasoline with no ethanol. Non-ethanol gasoline doesn’t exist at petrol stations around here, every pump has a big sticker that says “10% ethanol.”

The nice thing about the Mustang is that since it’s a classic and has a custom paint job, I get to fill it myself because they don’t want to mess it up. No waiting for an attendant (Oregon law) and nobody is ever in front of the pump.

My very first job where I had to give my employer my Social Security number was a gas station, right across the street from where I went to school. I was 15.

I can remember pumping gas for elderly folks, and filling their big gulps with diet pepsi, and all they had to do was push the ‘HELP’ button. We were all glad to do it. No law needed.

That gas station is gone now. That was 20 years ago, so I’m not sure how gas stations operate these days. That ‘HELP’ button is on every electronic petrol pump, which signals the clerks inside the station. I bet 98% of the alerts from the ‘HELP’ button on petrol pumps in the United States are completely ignored.

Downsizing, you see. Efficiency.

It’s a stark contrast going out of state and filling up. Stations with one person or even nobody (card only). Traveling through Oregon exposes you to at least one local everywhere you fill up.

Yeah, I can see the practicality for some locations. In Washington state, back in the 60’s through the 80’s, most of the stations had self-serve and attended filling sides. Attended filling cost a few pennies a gallon more and came with window cleaning and oil level check, if desired.

I thought that was a great arrangement.

Sunday local politics shows are interesting in Columbus today.

First I did not know the Pat Tiberi has decided not to run again for his Ohio 12th District Congressional Rep seat he has held since 2001. That is not my district but it is a big part of Columbus. It is the former seat of John Kasich.

I guess he has decided that as a moderate almost invisible party loyalist he has no future in conservative crazy Washington.

I am honestly shocked he is giving it up. He’s 55 so he could have had a few more terms in him. It is kind of scary that he seems to be saying he can’t work in a Republican Congress. Hell, he is pretty much a rubber stamper. Not good. Another sign of the issues in the GOP.

Need more indication of Republican craziness? Mary Taylor, John Kasich’s Lieutenant Governor of Ohio, is running for Ohio Governor and she and several other Republicans running for the office are running away from Kasich. Basically they are saying Kasich isn’t a true representative of the Republican party.

Think about that. Kasich is being seen as not a true Republican (of today).

Yeeesh! We have a huge mess. I thought the Republicans were crazy. They are crazier than I ever thought. Freaking Bannon may be right. He may be the “face” of the party.

Yep. Kelly lied and he does owe her an apology.

Let’s get another thing straight re Kellys sons death

His wife was the next of kin and was called (as I understand it)
The general even given his role in the admin was not the next of kin..hence the breakfast and not an “official” condolence call

That’s correct. The younger Kelly’s wife would have received that call.

All this talk about sitcoms. For the longest time, Seinfeld has been my favorite. But that’s been changing the more I’ve been watching That 70’s show. I’ve always enjoyed both, but now that T7S is on Netflix, I realize how much I missed of it when it was on the air when new.

Yes, there are so many lines and “I know someone like that!” moments on Seinfeld. Heck, I still quote that show almost daily as I go about my day. But with T7S, there are actually a lot of things taken quite seriously. I keep thinking of that Season 1 episode - Career Day when Eric goes to the hospital with Kitty. The doctors would treat her like crap simply because she was a woman, but she always did her job, and saved their asses too. The one part that drew me in was when one of her favorite patients who she’s talked about at home quite often passes away. Eric couldn’t deal with it and didn’t know how Kitty seemed to just shrug it off like it was nothing. And this was their ride home:

That 70’s Show Kitty and Eric singing Bad Blood

Ah. Music.

Tax every church. They want to play the politics game, so they have to pay like everyone else!

There has got to be another way. That taxation sounds like a better idea than it is. Being taxpayers is not what gives us our voice. Awful precedent, as awful as unintended I’m sure.

IMO We don’t want government depending on religion for revenue. We don’t want to treat little rural or local churches like mega churches. You don’t want that fight with the catholic church in our courts. It’s a guaranteed loser. We don’t need believer vs non believer strife.

“Legislation to provide $36.5 billion in aid for communities affected by recent wildfires and hurricanes, including Puerto Rico, secured widespread support in the House on Thursday save for 69 Republicans.

The votes in opposition included many members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, who believe government spending should not add to the deficit.”

Adding to the deficit by cutting taxes for the 1%, however, is fine. In fact, it’s the job they were sent to Washington to do, if they can find a way to get away with it.

Morning.

Sunday local politics shows are interesting in Columbus today.

First I did not know the Pat Tiberi has decided not to run again for his Ohio 12th District Congressional Rep seat he has held since 2001. That is not my district but it is a big part of Columbus. It is the former seat of John Kasich.

I guess he has decided that as a moderate almost invisible party loyalist he has no future in conservative crazy Washington.

I am honestly shocked he is giving it up. He’s 55 so he could have had a few more terms in him. It is kind of scary that he seems to be saying he can’t work in a Republican Congress. Hell, he is pretty much a rubber stamper. Not good. Another sign of the issues in the GOP.

Need more indication of Republican craziness? Mary Taylor, John Kasich’s Lieutenant Governor of Ohio, is running for Ohio Governor and she and several other Republicans running for the office are running away from Kasich. Basically they are saying Kasich isn’t a true representative of the Republican party.

Think about that. Kasich is being seen as not a true Republican (of today).

Yeeesh! We have a huge mess. I thought the Republicans were crazy. They are crazier than I ever thought. Freaking Bannon may be right. He may be the “face” of the party.

I had the distinct pleasure of having Kasich and then Tiberi as my reps when I lived in Ohio. Yeah—it was quite a pleasure. Tiberi must be either planning to run for something bigger or got a well-paid lobbying job. I haven’t kept track of him since I left Ohio in 2003, but I was not impressed.

So I’m weird among most of my family and friends in that I really love sitcoms. Always have. Other formats are favored and I totally understand why.

So lizards what are your favorite sitcoms ever?

Mine, as of right now, would be: MASH, Parks & Rec, Happy Endings, Martin, Frasier

The Honeymooners. MTM. All in the Family. Cheers. A couple of others that don’t spring immediately to mind. Not Seinfeld. Frasier either, too forced. MASH was OK but I had uncles and cousins who served in Korea and they didn’t find much humor in it.

OK, WKRP. Parks and Rec though it was occasional for me.

Also consider James Garner: Maverick was supposedly a western series but it was really a sitcom, same as Rockford was purportedly a private eye series but was also a sitcom. Garner could make you laugh if he was reading your own obituary.

There’s literally no way to break through the double standards, because fighting back just makes them wrap up into the double standard even more.

Skip Intro  Oct 22, 2017 • 10:41:42am

Report: Twitter CEO took a Russian impostor’s bait in 2016

The retweets were for innocent, “positive” stories.” And that was the point.

As the public learns more about confirmed Russian troll accounts on social media platforms over the past few years, reporters have begun digging into any ties the sham accounts may have with major political or tech voices. The Daily Beast found a pretty big one on Friday, when it confirmed via Internet archives that Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey unwittingly retweeted posts from a phony Black Lives Matter advocate.

In fact, the example Daily Beast reporter Ben Collins found was a single account, @crystal1johnson, getting two juicy retweets from Twitter’s very own “@jack.” The discovered posts (which are now archive-only, thanks to the account being deleted in August) date back to March 2016. Both revolve around black identity in the United States.

The first congratulated musician and actor Rihanna for winning a Humanitarian of the Year award from Harvard (dead link here, proof of its content here). The second shared a now-dead image of what may have been children of different races having fun together, with the description reading, “Nobody is born a racist. This picture is so sweet! Teach your children to judge others by the kind of person they are inside.” (Archived link of Dorsey’s retweet [RT], found by Collins, is here.)

Collins points out that another outlet, the non-government Russian agency RBC, identified @crystal1johnson as a Russian troll-farm account and that his own team was currently working to independently confirm that allegation.

…..

RTs from an account as heavily followed as Dorsey’s does just the trick. Accounts like these can allow a fake actor to attract seemingly organic connections to other users, which Twitter may look for when determining whether an account is legitimate and/or should be pushed down by its “quality filter.” From there, a politically motivated actor can distribute divisive messages or target advertising at a bucket of like-minded users.

They became a lot more popular after The Big Lebowski, despite the lack of firearms to defend the integrity of the line.

Stealing that Supreme Court seat was the #1 goal of the Christian Taliban. Enslaving pregnant women to the state is their main objective, and they’re on track to fulfil that agenda.

This is now the first podcast I’ve played via my Echo.

Yeah, I got one as gift from work. I use it mostly for a timer or to find out the weather outlook for the vicinity. I need to start exercising it more. I do use it for music sometimes. Linking it to my bluetooth speaker is nice and easy, just tell it to pair to speaker and it does. And I changed its wakeup command to ‘computer”, and I say it like Scotty from Star Trek.

Remember that change some of us made in Chrome to stop autoplay a few weeks back? A lot of us changed back as that was causing problems with some videos playing, especially those from Facebook.

It was this link: chrome://flags/# autoplay-policy

Set it back to default.
(Remove the space between the # and autoplay, it wanted to go to a Twitter page.)
