Read the original and the sequel (Killing Time). Great books TR as the Police Commissioner is a great character (Bully!).

Don’t have cable, but look forward to seeing the DVD’s. Great storyteller, is Caleb Carr.

Just watched the parade videos in the previous thread.

Sheesh, 200 years ago marching in formation was how you fought wars. Not today.

A parade with thousands of military in it will require tens of thousands of support folks.

The units will need to stop real training and practice marching. Then they will have to redeploy, do the parade, and then return to their base. At which point they will have to restart whatever they were doing before the parade. All the wear and tear to the units, their personnel, and their equipment will need time and money to fix.

And during this entire time those units and support folks will be unavailable for real missions.

If I were a global trouble maker, I would look at a parade as an excellent time to make that trouble.

It seemed to me that the idiot in the video was an immature male who was looking to attack someone weaker than he and less able to defend herself.

I think that he figured out pretty quickly that she could defend herself verbally and was unafraid. And it seemed to me that he fled pretty quickly upon realizing that.

But yes, my reaction was the same as yours.

I’m a tiny guy, but I would have at least tried if it came to protecting another person. I might get put in the hospital, but rolling over me would allow another to escape.

The problem in Nazi Germany in the Thirties was as the rhetoric and then violence escalated, an awful lot of people sat around and said “it can’t get worse” or “it doesn’t affect me.”

When the chips are down is when the mettle of your courage is actually measured. Considering the massive protest rallies (on behalf of both women and science) occurring in the nation, along with the wannabe fascists running away from their protests, I think that mettle is testing well so far.

re: #12 Anymouse 🌹

I agree, street fights are a real crapshoot. And if you are older than 35, you know you are going to get hurt. It’s just a matter of how badly. The hope is to make the other guy understand that it will not be an easy fight.

Most predators (including our current president) are just looking for easy wins. A good book on this is “The Gift of Fear” by Gavin De Becker.

I also agree that mass movements and mass protests are far more effective. The two women’s marches and the other protests including Boston and even Charlottesville against the fascists, were, to my mind, extremely effective.

So… This happened last week:

(nota bene - I did rearrange the order of the quotes to make a bit more sense of the story.)

“It started Saturday night with a raid and seizure of a marijuana dispensary retail outlet in the Black Creek Dr.-Eglinton Ave. area. Two officers tasked with guarding evidence were later allegedly experiencing dizziness and impairment from something consumed from that stash.”

“One officer was allegedly flying so high, he ended up in a tree.”

“Meanwhile, a female officer was allegedly wandering around in an altered state at great risk to herself and perhaps others, according to a source.”

“[A] third officer — who offered assistance — suffered a head wound while trying to help one of the officers.”

I just noticed that Silverton Mountain ski area in Colorado retweeted me (@SilvertonMtn).

Silverton Mountain is and will always be a crazy and unpredictable experience for their paying customers.

“Can I ski this place?”

“How good are you?”

“I can ski the double blacks in Breckenridge.”

“If there’s a mandatory air, even if it was five feet or less, would you jump into the run?”

“I… don’t think so.”

“You’re not in this group, go to the next group to your right.” (actual conversation I heard at Silverton Mountain)

Their employees don’t fuck around. I mean, look at this ski area. This is the view from just above the top of the chairlift.

“A former Trump economic adviser is now predicting financial doom: ‘This thing is going to implode’”

“[Carl] Icahn, a billionaire investor, called in to CNBC to talk about Monday’s massive drop in the Dow-Jones Industrial Average. While he thought that Monday’s crash was a mere blip, he did say that many institutions are over-leveraged right now just as they were right before the great financial crash of 2008.

“You have way too many derivatives,” Icahn said, referring to financial instruments whose value is backed by underlying assets such as mortgages, currencies or commodities. “It is not really a place for the average person to be playing around in derivatives.”

Tumblr was also overrun by Russian trolls, though the company is saying little about it. Those trolls promoted Bernie Sanders whilst denigrating Hillary Clinton.

The article starts (more at the link):

Russian trolls posed as black activists on Tumblr and generated hundreds of thousands of interactions for content that ranged from calling Hillary Clinton a “monster” to supporting Bernie Sanders and decrying racial injustice and police violence in the US, according to new findings from researcher Jonathan Albright and BuzzFeed News.

While Facebook and Twitter continue to face intense public and congressional pressure over the activity from trolls working for the Russian Internet Research Agency, Tumblr has somehow managed to escape scrutiny. But the blogging platform was in fact home to a powerful, largely unrevealed network of Russian trolls focused on black issues and activism.

“The evidence we’ve collected shows a highly engaged and far-reaching Tumblr propaganda-op targeting mostly teenage and twenty-something African Americans. This appears to have been part of an ongoing campaign since early 2015,” said Albright, research director of the Tow Center for Digital Journalism at Columbia University.

Good thing conservatives want to ban immigrants, since Elon Musk is an immigrant (from South Africa).

For that matter, that iPhone Donald Trump sends his derp out on is from Steve Jobs, who’s wife is the granddaughter of Syrian political refugees to our country.

“I do not support any immigration policy that would’ve kept my grandparents out of the country.”—Laurene Jobs, wife of Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs, April 12, 2013

The majority of American Nobel Prize winners in the sciences were or are immigrants.

It would seem we atheists care more about freedom of religion than right-wing Protestant politicians do.

I suppose the argument would be something along the lines of “the rosaries could be used as a weapon” or some such codswallop.

It probably wasn’t a great idea for the Roman Catholic Church to align itself with Paul Wyrich and his wingnut Protestant friends to get Ronald Reagan and conservative politicians elected.

He offers the sage advice that it’s not just enough to say “liberals suck” (though, he says, that’s a good thesis for books, as Ann Coulter has shown), but you should have nifty catch phrases for your objects of hatred and larder your article with meaty things like “immigrants suck, too.”

His not getting his way and the knowledge he is stuck in a very probing investigation is getting to him. He’s never been through anything like this before. He’s always had some control over his life, now it is out of his hands.

The correction for Bitcoin as displayed on the graph began in December. It bounced back in January and then has continued to decline since then. Both the run up and the decline have been far steeper than those for equities.

The adjustment for the stock market began in late January. It may or may not be in the process of rallying. The magnitude of the rise and the decline of the stock market are significantly smaller than that for bitcoin.

For starters, we’ve got a top WH aide who should never have been allowed anywhere near the WH if they did any kind of proper screening. Extreme vetting my ass. This should have been picked up and flagged, but apparently no one seems to think domestic violence and assaults are red flags:

Then there’s the nonstop bleating about how Obama tried to get information about ongoing FBI investigations.

If you thought that was a BS misinformation campaign, you’d be right.

There’s a huge difference between getting information and obstruction of justice by shutting down investigations.

Trumpworld and the right wing echo chamber want to conflate the two. Trump did the latter. The former isn’t criminal, let alone any indication of wrongdoing or interference in ongoing investigations.

And it comes as the GOP complains that there isn’t enough money.

So they’re going to force the military to spend millions to ship gear to hold a parade no one but Trump wants. Then have overflights that cost thousands an hour, shut down DC to basically hold a parade for Trump.

Yeah, there’s no logic to this other than Trump wants to hold a parade while everyone else is cursing under their breath at the besotted buffoon.

The IRS “scandal” is a huge circle jerk.

1. The IRS was understaffed and basically put together a spreadsheet of words that suggested political activity.
2. More conservative groups got flagged because this was the peak of the Tea Party movement so there were more such groups being formed than on the left
3. The Republicans take control, apologize to these groups and settle lawsuits. This is taken as proof that bad things were actually happening as opposed to the Republicans passing along cash and validation to Republican political groups

GOP cherry picked from list of organizations that the IRS flagged for scrutiny. GOP complained IRS flagged groups improperly. IRS Inspector General found that political groups were flagged because IRS was concerned they were seeking tax benefit they weren’t entitled to.

IRS indicated that the criteria was incomplete/insufficient; Congress needed to clarify with law (and still hasn’t). IRS therefore has to fill gaps with regulations and guidance.

GOP tries to find a fall guy to blame - besides Obama - attack IRS is their central goal.

The mentality of the people making the music. Producers now are ignoring all the musical principles of the previous generations. It’s a joke. That’s not the way it works: You’re supposed to use everything from the past. If you know where you come from, it’s easier to get where you’re going. You need to understand music to touch people and become the soundtrack to their lives. Can I tell you one of the greatest moments in my life?

Mucinex is if your nose is stuffed up and the mucus is thick.

If your throat hurts, I live by that spray in your throat Chloroseptic stuff. It freezes your throat.

Standard Robotussin might help with a drippy nose, as would Sudafed (I use PE which doesn’t have psudoepinepherine [sic] as that is bad for your blood pressure) because you want something that dries you, not makes you more drippy.

or

2. Are the troops going to be getting drilled so they can march pretty in formations so they can put on a good show for politicians and Trump?

i had “the cough” for four weeks. two bad / serious. and two like it sounds like you have now.

anything with dextromethorphan and guaifenesin - but not on top of the nyquil
i prefer pills to liquids and individual ingredients to the nyquil / shotgun approach but ymmv

i got hit xmas eve. 103 fever and unrelenting cough. it’s 2/7 and i’ve only been “clean” for maybe 2 weeks

there is an end. it feels like there isnt. it just lingers and drags.

I hope I don’t offend any vets here but I fear we’re turning respect for veterans into a cult and making true respect a mockery.

It’s all of a piece with the increasing requirement to make a show of patriotism. We went off and fucking won WWII, defeating Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan at the same time. We mobilized the entire nation to do this. After the initial celebrations, we didn’t have military parades every year. We flew the flag on special occasions. Nobody wore a goddam flag pin on their lapel. Hell, even when we elected a 5-Star General to be President, he never wore a uniform, didn’t call for parades, and warned all of us about the Military Industrial Complex.

Fewer and fewer of us actually serve in the military anymore, since the end of the draft. And yet we increasingly idolize the military.

re: #299 Ace-o-aces

This person is an idiot. No, global warming is not all ‘faulty computer modeling’.

1) the absorption spectrum of CO2 in the infrared is an incontrovertible fact. i.e. it traps heat.

2) the amount of CO2 we pump into the atmosphere is known, easily calculated from fossil fuel usage.

3) The increase in CO2 in the atmosphere and the oceans is measurable, and has been measured.

4) the increase in temperature in the atmosphere and the oceans is measurable, and has been measured.

So, we know CO2 traps heat, we’ve been adding A LOT to the atmosphere, and the temperature is rising. The data support the hypothesis. Now, you may hypothesize that it’s something else, but you have to actually NAME that something else. Things have causes. You can’t just say ‘It’s a cycle!’ without saying what it’s a cycle of. Solar irradiation? Yeah, we can measure that, too. It’s not rising. Falling, actually.

Oh, and those allegedly faulty models? Yeah - we’re right in line with them. Funny about that.

We all knew he had a combover for a large bald spot, but had no idea that his entire head is bald and covered with carefully combed extremely-long sideburns.

Yeah; I figured he was bald up top - not uncommon for a man of 70, to be honest - but his bald spot is much bigger than I’d thought it was.

Seriously - he should grow a goatee and shave his head. Go for that whole Walter White look (and if he lost about 30 pounds, that’d help too). He’d probably look better; there’s nothing that screams insecurity more than a comb-over.

Yes. I use Mucinex Sinus, and it helps a great deal.
