One thought generated by the previous thread:

Cagle is just one in a line of Georgians to shoot their state in the foot. HB87 was another example. Designed to scare off immigrants, it succeeded. In scaring off most of the workforce needed by Georgia farms and hotels and restaurants…

labor shortages triggered an estimated $140 million in agricultural losses, as crops rotted in the fields

As State Rep. Matt Ramsey, one of the bill’s authors, said at the time, “Our goal is … to eliminate incentives for illegal aliens to cross into our state.”

Now he and others are learning: Be careful what you wish for, because you may get more than you bargained for.

Posted in last thread…thought it an important thing to discuss.
- - - -
Ari Melber did an interesting piece toward the end of his show. It was about how Russia doesn’t care who knows and they might have wanted to be caught.

The reasoning: it shows Putin’s power and how he can influence the world’s political systems.

He wants to prove how vulnerable a democracy is because it is based on trust instead of a strong smart man like Putin. If he knows these systems so well, think how great a leader he is.

It was pretty thought provoking and a slant I had never considered. It goes to your worry about Mueller. He may be doing exactly what Putin wants.

If the video gets posted I’ll put it up for those without MSNBC coverage.

A bit of interesting news combining sports, advertising, politics and business.

ESPN - Papa John’s, NFL make ‘mutual decision’ to end sponsorship deal

Some bits from the article:

Papa John’s is no longer the official pizza of the NFL.

CEO Steve Ritchie said on the company’s earnings conference call that the league and the company mutually decided it was in their best interests for Papa John’s, which became the official pizza of the league in 2010, to give up the designation.

The brand is the first NFL sponsor to leave in the midst of its deal. The company said on the call that there was no additional cost for undoing the deal.

“The NFL and Papa John’s have made a mutual decision to shift from their official league sponsorship to a focus on partnerships with 22 local NFL teams, presence in broadcast and digital media, and key personalities in the sport,” the league and company said in a joint statement.

It was nearly four months ago that Papa John’s founder John Schnatter, then also the CEO, said players who staged protests during the national anthem hurt business. The company pulled the NFL shield off its commercials during game broadcasts and took the shield off its pizza boxes.

“We are disappointed the NFL and its leadership did not resolve this,” Schnatter said at the time.

Twelve days later, after the company’s stock had dropped 12 percent, Schnatter apologized for his comments.

Schnatter, who was the face of the brand, was later replaced as CEO on Jan. 1. The company’s chief financial officer, Lance Tucker, will leave after this week to become CFO at Jack in the Box.

The fact the NFL didn’t hold to the contract, being the more powerful entity that had a contract and didn’t act out tells me the NFL may have asked out because Papa is an ass.

Still have never had a Papa John’s pie and most likely never will. Thay do not even look good in their ads. IF you can’t make it look good for a camera well, there is just no hope.

“Cagle is just one in a line of Georgians to shoot their state in the foot. HB87 was another example. Designed to scare off immigrants, it succeeded. In scaring off most of the workforce needed by Georgia farms and hotels and restaurants…”

I remember when this happened. When the bill was being written, right-wingers were all for it because they were 100% sure undocumented immigrants were to blame for “taking their jobs [and everything else] from them.” After Deal signed the bill into law, migrant workers fled the state, crops began to rot in the fields, and Deal got the “great” idea to hire probationers to replace the migrant workers, and guess what happened? Many of the probationers who decided to take the jobs quit before noon on the first day on the job or quit before the end of the first week on the job because the work was just too hard. Since this happened, I haven’t heard much from the anti-immigration tools. This was one time that they got what they asked for and paid dearly for it.

Honestly, we used to get it a lot back in fish country before I moved out, and I would call it “okay”. Domino’s and Pizza Hut both reinvented their crust options and flavors and I find them to be tastier than Papa John’s, which is still essentially a piece of cardboard with some decent cheese and toppings.

It’s shit pizza. Sauce is sweet, crust is chewy and greasy. Reminds me of the ole Chef Boyardee pizza in a box, except it tastes worse and costs about 10x what pizza in the box costs.

Decent enough hangover food tho, if you have the money but not the energy to go get something. But I don’t eat like that anymore, and Papa Dipshit is on my permanent boycott list.

“Ben Carson’s HUD, Planning Cuts, Spends $31,000 on Dining Set for His Office
By GLENN THRUSH FEB. 27, 2018

WASHINGTON — Department of Housing and Urban Development officials spent $31,000 on a new dining room set for Secretary Ben Carson’s office in late 2017 — just as the White House circulated its plans to slash HUD’s programs for the homeless, elderly and poor, according to federal procurement records.

The purchase of the custom hardwood table, chairs and hutch came a month after a top agency staff member filed a whistle-blower complaint charging Mr. Carson’s wife, Candy Carson, with pressuring department officials to find money for the expensive redecoration of his offices, even if it meant circumventing the law.

Mr. Carson is also facing questions on another front. Under pressure earlier this month, he requested that HUD’s inspector general investigate his son’s involvement in a department-sponsored listening tour of Baltimore last summer. Department lawyers had warned Mr. Carson that including Ben Carson Jr., an entrepreneur who does business with the federal government, could create a conflict of interest.

Mr. Carson “didn’t know the table had been purchased,” but does not believe the cost was too steep and does not intend to return it, said Raffi Williams, a HUD spokesman.

“In general, the secretary does want to be as fiscally prudent as possible with the taxpayers’ money,” he added.”

re: #98 jaunte

On top of the emoluments. On top of Trump-Russia. On top of all of it, we’ve got the fact that Trump keeps picking the absolute worst people for roles that they are spectacularly unqualified to handle. That’s from the top on down and includes judicial nominees. That’s a lasting effect that will affect the trajectory of judicial decisions for decades to come.

The fact that Kushner is still part of this admin despite losing clearance is a huge scandal in its own right. Kushner’s a hub of scandal that would otherwise take down a presidency.

He’s compromised and Trumpworld treats this as an afterthought.

Ivanka jetting off as representative of US and then doing business for her own companies? Another huge scandal.

Ditto for Junior.

Gutting the EPA? Gutting the CFPB?

Every single thing he does is a scandal or deflects from a scandal with still more.

He’s taking every scandal in our nation’s history and upping it to 11 - combined.

It’s absolutely tiring trying to keep on top of it, but we have to do it. We cannot let it go unremarked upon.

Five Dollar Feminist explains that issue with Dr. Ben Carson and the redecorating at HUD costing so much money.

Remember Trump’s wedding planner he hired to work at HUD? And the whistleblower at HUD who kept reporting attempts to fire civil servants who are Democrats in violation of the law? About all that, The Guardian reports on all that and Wonkette snarks heavily on fiscal conservatism grifting:

wonkette.com

Who could have predicted such a shitshow at HUD under the trusty leadership of a narcoleptic nuerosurgeon and a Trump party planner? Well, who besides anyone with a pulse. Things have been too quiet for too long at HUD, but now it’s all starting to hit the fan. So let’s walk through The Guardian’s story on Helen Foster, a career civil servant who was just trying to do her damn job when the Ben and Candy Carson Show came to town. It’s a doozy!

So, imagine this. You are teaching a third grade class and hear BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG (etc.) coming from down the hall. The local school district has provided you with a 9 mm pistol and minimal training, compared to any LEO.

You have two choices. You can lock the door, and put a chair underneath the doorknob and get you 30 students into a closet and hide. If the shooter gets into your room, you can take a last gasp shot at him (it’s always a him) and he will probably kill you and then the kids, but at least you tried. Or, he will simply walk past the barricaded door and look for a softer target, and your gun will not have cleared leather.

Or, you can bravely open the door and get into a shooting match with a gunman with a rifle while you have a pistol. Which you are most likely going to lose. You haven’t locked the door, it’s open behind you. You haven’t put the chair under the door, and you haven’t shoved your kids into a closet. They are, in fact, easy targets now that you are incapacitated or dead.

Gee? Which would I choose?

The point, of course, being that even arming teachers will not make them do something that would, odds on, be more likely to result in their kids being killed.

Think Progress claims to have a memo, given to it by an employee, showing why FedEx isn’t willing to reverse their decision to give discounts to NRA members. The short of it goes like this. The USPS rarely ships guns. UPS requires them to be shipped overnight, so they’re not in their system very long. FedEx claims they do the same thing, but, according to the memo, they offer two or three day shipping to certain groups. It makes shipping cheaper, which means they’re getting more shipping traffic.

When I arrived in Madison, WI, in 1966, someone stole my license plate in the first hour I was there. I only noticed it when I went to unpack the trunk. I’m pretty sure it was for the “exotic” plate (Louisiana) rather than for some identity switch. A cop happened to be right there on the block and I told him what had happened. He made a note of my complaint and wrote me out a citation for operating a vehicle without a license plate.

On the one hand, I think that if Russians really had the ability to interfere with elections to the point of changing vote totals, we wouldn’t be seeing these flips…but on the other, I can’t help but worry they’re keeping powder dry for the midterms :/

As Sarah Kendzior always says, do everything to overcome hacking/voter suppression first.

I don’t think they have the ability to hack actual elections, though the thought of them playing with voter rolls is very disturbing. They do have the ability to screw with people’s heads, but I think that will have less of an impact this time than 2016. We will have to be prepared. But we’re on track to landslide even over what’s been seen even in recent midterm routs.

re: #146 Belafon

Think Progress claims to have a memo, given to it by an employee, showing why FedEx isn’t willing to reverse their decision to give discounts to NRA members. The short of it goes like this. The USPS rarely ships guns. UPS requires them to be shipped overnight, so they’re not in their system very long. FedEx claims they do the same thing, but, according to the memo, they offer two or three day shipping to certain groups. It makes shipping cheaper, which means they’re getting more shipping traffic.

The gun shop owner in my town uses the US Postal Service’s Registered Mail service.

When we had the post office fight here to keep our post office and the USPS claimed no one really used the office much, the gun shop owner dumped thousands of dollars in Registered Mail receipts on the desk in front of the person from the USPS.

According to him, the law requires shipping guns and certain hardware (with rare exceptions) by Registered Mail, not UPS or FedEx.

I left upgrade training at Castle AFB and went to K. I. Siberia (oops, Sawyer) AFB in the spring of ‘80. In ‘81 Reagan pushed through a massive increase in military spending. The problem was, it had to be spent by October 31, 1981, and there were not enough weapons systems in the pipeline to come anywhere near to absorbing the cost.

It was a puzzlement! What to do? The money had to be spent or it would look really bad.

So, we got new alert trucks. Everything on base was painted. Every piece of furniture was replaced (even if it was brand new). Typewriters. Fencing. New guns for the guards. New guns for the air crews (.38’s which may have had 30 rounds put through them were tossed). New arctic gear. New tires and spares for the planes. New engine starters and heat huffers for the planes. New Oshkosh snow blowers for the runway. Somehow we spent enough useless dollars to meet our allotment.

RWNJs are intellectually lazy — and sadly so is the majority of the population. It’s much easier to get basic info from a video than to sit and *read* a detailed article that covers all the nuances of a given subject.

In my old office, the managers would go around and see if anyone needed anything they could get out of the budget before the end of the fiscal year — a second monitor, replacement keyboard, or new desk chairs. I remember one year, we bought a coat rack, because we didn’t have one, and no one wanted to drape a wet coat over the back of their chair.

I kept asking them for a cappuccino machine or pet goat for the office, but they wouldn’t approve that. Shoulda worked for Trumpers, I guess…

My agency, like all other Fed agencies, had to spend or obligate all their funds by the end of the Fiscal Year. I always maintained a wish list of extra items my staff and I could use if there were any extra funds. The biggest item I purchased was a 60” color plotter for producing maps. That thing wound up being used almost daily so it was a good investment.

Being a Fed it was always difficult to do any meaning-full budgeting and planning. First of all, the continuing resolution process got you into the middle of the FY before you got your final budget. Then you wound up with 6 months to complete all your targets.

The CST did a pretty good job of fairly covering the news.

It would appear to be a fellow named Scott Gillespie.

Scott has been editorial page editor since 2007 and has overall responsibility for the Editorial Department. He was the lead editor on “Separate and Unequal,” the series of editorials on underfunded Bureau of Indian Education schools that was a finalist for a 2015 Pulitzer Prize.

Before joining Editorial, Scott was managing editor at the Star Tribune, responsible for the day-to-day operations of the newsroom. During his five-year tenure in that role, the news staff produced awarding-winning coverage on the death of Paul Wellstone, the war in Iraq and the collapse of the I-35W Bridge. Before being named managing editor, Gillespie served as the paper’s assistant managing editor for local news and assistant managing editor for business news. He has more than 30 years of news reporting and editing experience at newspapers in Wisconsin and Minnesota. He served as a Pulitzer Prize juror in 2004, 2005, 2011 and 2012. Gillespie has a bachelor’s degree in journalism and political science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has been an adjunct faculty member in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication at the University of Minnesota. He lives in St. Paul with his family.

Yeah, everyone around Trump made that decision. I believe it’s because they’re all cut from the same cloth - venal, opportunistic hustlers who are all down with plumbing the depths of corruption. Some of them are pretty, but they have the morals of vipers.

They all share the same disregard for national loyalty. For all his BS about “America First” and MAGA, Trump’s only real motivation is to enrich himself at the expense of the USA. Remember, this is his MO — whatever he most accuses others of doing, he does himself. The Kushners have sold out to the Chinese, Trump to the Russians, and who knows how the Saudis are involved. This administration may singlehandedly destroy the USA by parcelling it out to foreign powers and foreign influence.

The sex guy who is leaving ($5 mil offer to a staffer to birth his spawn) endorsed this sex guy. Who then had his own scandal sexting with a young staffer.

Gaa, on another forum I’m having again to knock down the conservative lie that Obama had total control of Congress for two years, why didn’t the Dems propose any gun legislation if they are so concerned about it?

Aside from the fact that there was never “total control of Congress” there was legislation proposed. The R’s were busy obstructing everything to make President Obama a “one-term president.”

The actual timeline of control of Congress is here:

ohio.com
(Akron Beacon-Journal, explaining the numbers of seats controlled by each party in 2009-2010 and why the claim is a lie.)

All you have to do is assert things often enough to a conservative and it becomes an article of faith to them, and no evidence to the contrary shakes that faith.

It is why I call conservatism a religion. The phrase “Conservatism can’t fail, it can only be failed” is strikingly similar to the phrase “All people fall short of the glory of God.”

Chuck C. Johnson tried out for “Survivor.” Huffington Post has his audition tape. He was rejected.

huffingtonpost.com

Chuck Johnson — a far-right troll and occasional adviser to Trump’s administration who is famous for publishing the home addresses of reporters whose work he doesn’t like, suggesting an Amtrak crash was caused by the engineer’s sexuality, questioning how many Jewish people were killed in the Holocaust, and propagating a claim he pooped on the floor at his college — once made an audition tape for “Survivor.” We have obtained that tape, which you can watch above.
