watching all of this shit unfold, on multiple fronts, with the GOP and the Russians and the greedy fuckers that know no allegiance to anything or anyone other than their own bottom line, I just hope that we have an opportunity to recover.

and if we recover, I have no problem whatsoever witnessing payback.

for the country
for the people harmed
and on a personal note…

for my loss of naivete in thinking that there were some basic essentials that all Americans believed in… Democracy, fairness, equality, opportunity… I guess I am just a sucker to be fleeced and taken advantage of in the eyes of the people currently in charge.

Trump fires half his fucking cabinet in a week and the GOP just twiddles their thumbs.

I swear to God they’d let him start a nuclear war before they ever think about the word “Impeach” or the 25th.

re: #2 Eclectic Cyborg

i think its because they’re all dirty and they KNOW that they are dirty and are hoping for scandal fatigue to set in and allow the media to focus on something else. As a corollary, they could be hoping for a good old fashioned war to “rally” the country together and take the heat off of them “for the good of the country”.

I have no faith at all that there’s anyone left in the GOP who has any love of country, they’ve either been compromised, are part of the over all plan or are simply too cowardly to do anything that resembles what any of the rest of us would consider to be a moral choice…

just look at what they’ve done so far:

fucked the dreamers
fucked the poor
protected the nazis
protected the NRA
protected the Russians
STILL blaming Hillary for fucking everything

Drumpf is hollowing out his advisors to the point that idiots, feebs, and Dominionists are replacing people with at least *some* competence.

It’s a slow-motion brain-drain of the Administration.

Meanwhile, I would like to place my name into the mix as the next Irish Ambassador, a position that has been unfilled for a year. My dad was Irish, I like Guinness, I’ve been to the country, and can tell someone to pog mo thoin. (pardon the lack of diacriticals)

Don’t hold your breath, you might need to run! Trump’s a gambler who has experience negotiating with bankers he owed enormous amounts, and persuading them that it was cheaper overall to let him slide a couple of million a year (month?) than to kill the market for those investments. This time, I don’t think he can get out of trouble but he’s damn well going to try — maybe even die trying.

I don’t know if this was noticed, what with all the craziness, but the timing of this is quite interesting.

“After 12 years of marriage, we have decided to go our separate ways,” the statement said. “We will always have tremendous respect for each other and our families. We have five beautiful children together and they remain our top priority. We ask for your privacy during this time.”

The New York Post’s Page Six and the New York Daily News reported earlier Thursday that President Donald Trump’s daughter-in-law had filed for divorce in the Manhattan Supreme Court.

The White House declined to comment on the reports and referred questions to the Trump Organization.

Oh, let’s not even go there. That cannot and will not happen. The Norks have the capacity to inflict great pain on the South, but it would result in their complete destruction. If the wind is right, and it often is, we could scorch them and take out Vladivostok as collateral damage. Does anyone think the Russians want a nuclear exchange on the peninsula? Does China?

That’s the popular theory, that she sees hubby is gonna get dragged down by daddy-in-law and wants to secure her and her kids assets against efforts to seize them. If that is the thinking, then it shows she’s smarter than any Trump not named “Tiffany” or “Barron.”

Trump’s not a gambler. He’s a bully and a blowhard.

The reason he hopped into bed w/ the Russians, is that he lost all his bets for financing in the US with his bankruptcies and was left with only the option of laundering Russian Oligarch money through his real estate assets to keep himself afloat, pay his bills, and acquire seed money to expand his real estate Ponzi scheme.

He was trying to keep his nose above water, and money, being money, he chose to sell his soul to the Russians.

Useful Idiot to Putin, traitor to the US.

The most amazing such figure comes from California. Do you know what the State Assembly would look like with a PA-18-level swing?

Seventy-eight Democrats and two Republicans (Districts 1 and 34 - and 1 would be recount-close). 78 to 2. Indeed, there’d be three districts where such a swing wouldn’t be possible as the Democrat would win more than 100% of the vote.

The State Senate would be 35 to 5, and it’d be that “close” only because four of the Senate GOoPers would not be up for election.

The problem was that fascism simply didn’t breed good leadership succession. Without democracy, leaders stayed in power for far beyond their leadership dates, and in their struggle to retain power generally eliminated anyone even mildly competent. The rest was an inner cadre of gradually diminishing talent, forced to rely on lower and lower sources of income.

Obviously not every district will swing as much as Pa-18 did. However, polling shows that Obamacare is now a winning issue for Democrats, and they can use it as a weapon against all the Republicans who voted to repeal it.

Here is what is important; this is another humiliating black eye for our country, with our President bragging about lying to one of our closest allies. Imagine for a moment that Kim Jong Un was even slightly serious about denuclearization. With Trump planning to break the Iran denuclearization deal, and Trump bragging about lying to Canada’s PM, for what possible reason would Kim trust anything Trump promised him?

re: #42 Blind Frog Belly White

while that is certainly a laudable sentiment and there’s certainly enough other foibles to pick from, the fact remains that with pending divorce from Don Jr., it means that she is free to testify to anything she may have heard that may have been illegal.

The fact remains that the GOP routinely trots out character assassination attacks on liberal targets with little regard to how much “pain” anyone is going through (see the Rich family for example one and any kids families that dies in a school shooting incident for numerous others)…

While Sippy may not be guilty of those attacks personally, the folks that she supports on a daily basis DO.

so while the idea is really nice, when you’ve been playing with jackals and coyotes and wolves, you’re going to be considered one and you’ve taught us all to be worse people by watching the indifferent treatment of others for much greater losses. Hard to muster a thimbleful of compassion in this case.

Apparently the term “fake news” was originated in Ukraine and other eastern European countries a few years ago as Russian propaganda campaigns started to hit social media there.

Watching the coverage of the pedestrian bridge accident is truly horrifying. Having worked in that industry for most of my adult life, it is all I know. New York lost a pedestrian bridge while it was being built in the late 1990’s, I knew several of the carpenters on that job. I think it comes down to “it’s just a pedestrian bridge”

Reading the comments, I always chuckle when someone writes “Trumps fault”.
I found this while researching the prime contractor of the Florida Pedestrian bridge:

Munilla Construction Management, also known as MCM, has built schools, airports and highways all around the United States. Its projects have included terminals at PortMiami, various city halls and police stations, and the bridges connecting Las Olas Boulevard to the finger islands in Fort Lauderdale. Now the Miami-based firm, owned by six brothers, is playing a bit part in a national saga: the investigation of President Donald Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort. Manafort managed Trump’s presidential campaign from June to August 2016. He quit amid allegations that he had been paid millions of dollars under the table for consulting deals in Ukraine, and now he is facing scrutiny over a number of real estate deals. The saga has several ties to South Florida.

dangerman  Mar 16, 2018 • 4:59:53am

we were already discussing this here. days ago.

example after example: the wall, healthcare, guns, immigration, Afghanistan, tariffs, Korea, “space force”

it’s all about getting headlines

Remember that time, way back about two weeks ago, when President Trump berated leaders of his own party, in front of a room full of cameras, for being afraid of the NRA, and he vowed to pass a bipartisan bill that would make it harder for kids to get assault rifles?

Yeah, well, in case you missed the latest — which wouldn’t have been hard, since the one-day story was instantly eclipsed by a Cabinet shakeup and a special election — that whole thing went away Monday with a mumbled “never mind” from the White House.

Apparently gun control is really hard, and you actually have to focus on it and change some minds and anger some of your friends, and why go through all that when you’ve already gotten the headline you were after. Kind of like the time in January when Trump did the same thing on immigration, summoning lawmakers from both parties to the White House and declaring his full support for a bipartisan compromise. That lasted until breakfast the next day.

And you can already see where this alleged breakthrough summit with the North Korean dictator, Kim Jong Un, is probably headed. The shocking announcement last Thursday played on TV like the dramatic opening of a thriller. It’s been a silent movie ever since.

This is exactly what Trump does, again and again. Forget the standard photo ops; his entire presidency, save for a giveaway-laden tax bill that actually originated in Congress, is a string of dramatic flourishes, without even the aspiration to translate them into something like actual governance.

But we’re still letting this president perform for the cameras as if he were actually planning to govern, without giving nearly as much attention to what happens on the issue once the cameras are gone. We’re still allowing ourselves to be carried along by one dramatic turn after another, because Trump knows instinctively that if he keeps us moving today, we won’t have time to dwell on whatever he promised yesterday.

It is also great symbolism for the red-meat masses:

“Build the Wall!!!” and they think that we are doing something about immigration reform.

“Trade wars are winnable: Impose taxes and tariffs on imported goods!” and they believe that we are trying to protect or bring back manufacturing jobs.

“Death penalty for drug dealers!” and they see that as a sign that we are trying to get a handle on the opioid crisis.

And then dozens of pundits step up to explain why this is not vaporware.

Conservatives like to rant about the “deep state”. True professionals have careers that span more than one administration.

They serve the sitting President, but their loyalty is to serve the US government, regardless of who is running it. And they have to make sure that government continues to fulfill its tasks.

Hitler was big on playing factions off against factions without clearly defined or delineated competencies and powers; as long as they were infighting, they were weak, and he could better control them. That also does not produce good leadership.

Greets and saluts from the Resistance in the NYC metro area.

The commute on the NEC is a total cock-up this morning as the Portal Bridge has failed to close. It was opened overnight for boat traffic and it’s been unable to lock in the close position ever since.

This is the most heavily traveled rail segment in the US - between Newark Penn Station and NYC Penn Station.

The bridge has repeatedly failed to close over the years and there’s a replacement plan for the bridge, but it’s included in the Gateway Project. Trump’s sabotaged the funding for that plan, and therefore the replacement bridge is on hold thanks to Trump.

But getting back to Charles’ post and Trump filling his staff with loyalists.

Trump filled his staff with loyalists from day one. He values loyalty over all else, including knowledge and competency. So when Trump thinks one of his picks was disloyal, he sacks them.

He cannot tolerate anyone who doesn’t push the Trump line.

He cannot deal with anyone or anything that gives him a contrary opinion or provides him with information that goes against Trump’s beliefs or feelings.

That’s why McMaster is gone.
That’s why Comey is gone.
That’s why so many others are gone - they gave Trump news Trump didn’t want to hear, but had to hear.

Trump doesn’t accept any contrary information to his addled worldview.

This is central to the job of the president - to get all information, good, bad, and even info contrary to what the president believes, in order to get the best information and judgments to make decisions.

Trump doesn’t make informed judgments or decisions.

He’s an addled know nothing who reacts to world events and speaks without thinking.

He equates Nazis with the people protesting them. He is a bigot and nativist whose policies are applauded by white supremacists and Nazis for good reason. He lies about everything, including consequential and inconsequential acts.

And all of it is a house of cards that should come toppling down if only the GOP did their own jobs and upheld their oaths of office to protect and defend the nation against threats foreign and domestic.

Instead, they too are enabling and complicit with Trumpworld as they’re using this as an opportunity to fleece the Treasury and pass massive tax breaks that sabotage functioning government and roll back regulations protecting everyone from corporate predators, protect voting/civil rights, environmental protection, and even transit rules that would make it safer to ride the roads and rails.

Everybody look what’s going down

There’s battle lines being drawn
Nobody’s right if everybody’s wrong
Young people speaking their minds
Getting so much resistance from behind

I think it’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

What a field-day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly say, hooray for our side

It’s time we stop, hey, what’s that sound
Everybody look what’s going down

Into your life it will creep
It starts when you’re always afraid
You step out of line, the man come and take you away

re: #118 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

It was so popular that even a majority GOP Congress could not muster enough votes to totally kill it.

The only math the GOP could come up with was one that eliminated health coverage for 50 million people and not provide a single new health policy. Every other plan they concocted would cost more and cover fewer people.

So, they’ve taken to sabotaging Obamacare. Eliminating the individual mandate isn’t a winning issue because it’s eliminating funding for 10 million people.

Trump doesn’t have a plan.

The GOP had 8 years to come up with a plan, and the best they could do was something scribbled on a napkin over drunk lunch.

They’re hoping no one notices that the GOP has moved on to trying to sack Medicaid and Medicare while no one is looking. Why? Because they’re using the exploding debt as an excuse to gut the safety net.

Never mind that the debt exploded precisely because of all the tax cuts that benefit corporations and millionaires the most (going back to the Reagan and Bush tax cuts - and compounding interest). Rolling back those tax cuts on millionaires would help the economy grow more than any other measure. It would help restore funding for actual infrastructure and pay down debt.

The GOP isn’t interested in any of it and sees debt as something that is a problem only when Democrats propose social programs that are meant to address major problems - like starving kids, public health, or infrastructure.

“My client was physically threatened to stay silent about what she knew about Donald Trump,” Michael Avenatti told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “New Day.” He said more details would be forthcoming in Daniels’ upcoming interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” which is scheduled to air later this month.

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer alleges there are 6 more women with stories similar to his client’s “She’s going to be able to provide very specific details about what happened here,” Avenatti said. He would not answer whether or not it was someone close to the President who threatened her.

Morning.

Just saw that Tom Steyer is kicked off his Need to Impeach town hall series in Columbus. I didn’t know this was going to happen…been behind on local news since The Columbus Dispatch went paywall.

By the way…is he a Democrat? I don’t know that much about him, but I thought he was a Republican.

Not sure how effective he is, but it doesn’t hurt.

Ohio State University Radio -
Billionaire Behind ‘Need To Impeach’ Campaign Begins Town Hall Series In Columbus

A billionaire Democratic fundraiser who’s been running a TV and online campaign to impeach President Trump has launched what he says will be a series of at least 30 town hall meetings around the country, and he kicked it off in Columbus. He’ll go to Cincinnati next.

“It is wonderful to be in Columbus, Ohio, and to start off this series of town halls with you guys,” said Tom Steyer a California hedge fund manager turned progressive activist

This could be described as the opposite of a Trump rally. Around 150 attendees sat in padded straight back chairs in the basement ballroom of the YWCA in Columbus, listening to Steyer share his thoughts behind his “Need to Impeach” campaign.

There were several moments of loud applause and spontaneous shouts. But there were no signs, no chants, no protests - just an hour of pointed anti-Trump rhetoric, such as “We view this president and this campaign as a fight for the soul of America.”

Steyer had said he would be making the case for impeachment to Democrats, independents and Republicans - but the audience was overwhelmingly left leaning.

Sandy Callahan came up from Lancaster to hear Steyer’s pitch.

“I’ve watched the ads and he’s been the person who has been saying out loud what I’ve been thinking for months and months,” Callahan said. “And he’s been the only one I’ve heard say it out loud. So I wanted to know more about him.”

Callahan lives with her son David Clayton-Ready, who recently moved to Ohio.

“I think that the reason we have something like Need to Impeach to exist to begin with is kind of a symptom of the whole problem - it’s not just Trump. It’s been brewing for a long, long time, both on the Democratic and Republican side,” Clayton-Ready said.

Phyllis Elmo from Columbus is already active in progressive politics - even helping write cards to voters in recent elections in Alabama and Pennsylvania. She’s glad to see Steyer start this series of town halls to supplement his TV ad and online campaign.

“I’m really happy he’s doing it, and I’m also happy he has enough money to do it, so which unfortunately has become necessary in these days,” Elmo said.

Columbus environmental advocate Carolyn Harding is among the 5 million people who’ve signed Steyer’s online impeachment petition, and has no concerns about what he’ll do with what he’s called a digital army of activists.

“I knew that when I gave him my email. I knew that I’d be in his database. But I’m very transparent about what I stand for,” Harding said.

After the event, Steyer said he’s assembled the largest grassroots organization in the U.S. He plans to spend $30 million on ads and town halls in this midterm election year - and was asked why he wasn’t pouring the money into state and local elections instead.

“We’re doing phone banking. We’re using snail mail. We’re using all of the online means of reaching people because as far as we’re concerned, everything you’re talking about, we’re doing,” Steyer said.

Steyer’s series of town halls begin in Ohio, a state that went for Trump but has a Trump critic as governor. Steyer did say he watched John Kasich in the 2016 debates and on TV since then, but says he’s never met him.

re: #132 Joe Bacon 🌹

And now the Stormy goes to Category 5

The lawyer representing Stormy Daniels, the porn star suing President Donald Trump, claimed Friday that she has faced physical threats.

“My client was physically threatened to stay silent about what she knew about Donald Trump,” Michael Avenatti told CNN’s Chris Cuomo on “New Day.” He said more details would be forthcoming in Daniels’ upcoming interview on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” which is scheduled to air later this month.

Stormy Daniels’ lawyer alleges there are 6 more women with stories similar to his client’s “She’s going to be able to provide very specific details about what happened here,” Avenatti said. He would not answer whether or not it was someone close to the President who threatened her.

cnn.com

But don’t worry folks, All those Pulpit Pimps will still rally around Gawd’s Anointed King no matter what he does and so will their brainwashed marks!

And sure enough you have Pulpit Pimps praying for Stormy’s death…

fwiw, on a more serious note i wonder whether there is a confluence of events happening here

as the daniels story unfolds if there’s continual support for trump
and the student’s gun safety movement vs the NRA

both seem to have the beginnings, maybe the makings to unmask, expose and maybe bring down two very powerful groups. not specifically as their goal. more like as a resulting consequence

evangelicals and the NRA are being shown for the hypocrites they are
that their positions when looked at with even a cursory amount of objectivity don’t hold up

From what I’ve put together about Steyer, he’s left-ish, but he’s got a lot of money to spend. One the one hand, he’s one of the few rich lefties willing to spend money; on the other hand, he seems to be like lots of other rich people where he thinks it means it makes him really important. But that’s just my interpretation of what I’ve seen.

But I got Slasher wrong, so I could be wrong.

Slasher’s statement reminds me of comments in one of the tweets from one of the MSD students the other day. The student said they were going to need to fix things the Boomers had messed up, which started the usual “not all Boomers” line from people. But, here’s the thing: The modern NRA belongs to the Boomers. The modern evangelical movement belongs to the Boomers. It could be argued that both of those started before the Boomers but that generation isn’t in control any more. Boomers could have, and could be, doing something about them, but they won’t because it’s about power, not doing the right thing.

And, just to be fair, as a Gen-Xer, my generation hasn’t done any better.

and both things can be true at the same time

Pointless trivia moment. In Japanese (and I suppose Chinese from which it derives) the character for “generation” 世 was sometimes used for the number 30 in the old days. 30 years being considered the range of a generation and because it was originally written in oracle bone script (I think) as three tens stacked up (十十十=三十).

I fall right at the end of the Baby Boom.

As for separating generations, it is a useful tool to demographers and historians, but of course “not all …” applies to every generation’s members.

Attacks on generations, “Baby boomers are all greedy conservatives because the NRA or bank boards are mostly made up of them” or “Millenials are lazy and won’t take their heads out of their cell’ phones” are nothing more than lazy ad hominen attacks against whole groups to discount their opinions.

Is the NRA made up of mostly Baby Boomers? Probably. Do most Baby Boomers belong to the NRA? No.

Do some Millenials park their heads in video games and are lazy? Probably. Do most do that? No.

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Law-abiding high school students who are 18 or older should be allowed to carry long guns inside public high schools, an Ohio lawmaker said on Thursday.

Republican Rep. Niraj Antani, of Miamisburg, said state law allows those 18 or older to carry a long gun, so anyone who complies “should be able to carry and protect themselves.” He first made the remarks in an interview with the Dayton Daily News.

Antani, who previously supported gun rights on campuses, said he was not recommending arming high school students, but believes those who meet legal requirements should have the option to carry.

Stormy Daniels is actually a welcome distraction for Trump. It will be spun as sleaze mongering and compared to Clinton/Flowers, etc., and again totally distract from looking closer into criminal and irregular activity on the part of Trump and his organization/administration.

A distraction for everyone but Muellers investigation. It might just add to it for them.

I do believe that is all part of the natural process for going out on your own, the breakaway from the family, etc.

That is if the damn Millennials ever leave the house and go out on their own. ///

IIRC, when Angelina Jolie played Croft, they padded up her boobies from C to D. And I seem to recall that she kept getting hot brass down her cleavage from her left-hand gun - one of those things that happens in real life if you’re wearing a tank top, with big boobies under it, while shooting semiautomatic pistols with both hands.

Note also that Vikander appears to be wearing long pants, not the Daisy Dukes Croft wears in the games, yet another change that actually makes sense for an action hero.

Speaking of Lara Croft, it just occurred to me that the character Revy from the anime Black Lagoon is clearly inspired by Lara Croft, at least in physical appearance/character design (personality wise, Revy is a violent, chain-smoking, self-confessed sociopath).

Don’t know why I never really noticed that before.

Blind Frog Belly White  Mar 16, 2018 • 8:26:16am

Yglesias keeps mentioning this, which is fair. However, I’d also point out that when Clinton proposed this, we were at the peak of a three-decade-long rise in violent crime, and we had no way of knowing we were at the peak. We assumed we were still in the linear phase of the curve and it would keep rising for a long time. People forget how bad it was and how bad we had every reason to think it would get.

Also, there’s a significant difference between ‘kingpins’ and ‘dealers’, kinda like the difference between ‘CEO’ and ‘employee’.

In my capacity as the local Flag Committee Chair, the message I just sent out:

Representative Louise Slaughter (D-NY25) passed away this morning. Congresswoman Slaughter was the oldest member of the US House of Representatives; she was born August 14, 1929.

In accordance with the US Flag Code, the flag should be placed at half-staff on the day of death and the day after on the death of a Representative or Senator, unless modified by proclamation. Additionally, the Representative’s or Senator’s desk is draped in black in the US House or US Senate. As such, the flag should remain at half-staff through sunset on Saturday, March 17.

Congresswoman Slaughter fell at her home on March 15, and was taken to the hospital with a concussion.

Although it has not been posted to her official US House page, her aide has already spoken to the press.

When there is an official statement (probably later today), it will appear on her US House page.

louise.house.gov

The last entry regards her fall and trip to the hospital.

For flags which cannot be lowered to half-staff, the American Legion recommends the following:

For flags displayed flat, such as on a wall, place a black bow in the centre or three black bows across the top.
For flags displayed from a gaff (such as a porch or boat), or from a fixed staff (such as a church, office, or automobile), place a black ribbon the width of one stripe and the length of the flag at the peak of the flag.

Resident Evil movies? There have only been about a dozen of them - one of them has to be decent (I haven’t watched any of them).

I watch them because Milla Jovavich and Michelle Rodriguez rock, but no they aren’t what you would call good.

I think the franchise has yet to get a fresh rating on rotten tomatoes.

re: #259 dangerman

we just started watching. we’re somewhere in late season 1 or early in 2.

it may be just me
i find the two main characters just a bit super hero-ish
and their targets / marks are all too vulnerable and gullible, and every one corruptable

they lead double or triple lives and always seem to have time to be everywhere, raise the kids, grocery shopping, the office, fake marriages, and every now and then an actual op
they are never seen training and still have excellent aim and win nearly every physical fight/encounter
their disguises are never detected

when some professional (say fbi or army guy) seems to get an upper hand, they end up doing something predictable and buffoonish (not frisking, getting too close, etc)

it may be just me (and it may be early in the series)

It’s not just you, and it is early in the series. Things become more complicated and they don’t win ‘em all.

Dotard Jr. Is About To Get Screwed By His Dad’s Tax Plan During This Divorce

lawandcrime.com

I’m getting ill from consumption of so much popcorn.

So much YES.

I preemptively apologize for the blatant schadenfreude, but I am going to love it when Donald Trump, Jr.’s ex-wife screws him with his father’s tax plan.

Starting January 1, 2019, alimony payments are no longer deductible to the payer or included in the income of the recipient. That means the Trumps have about nine months to resolve all their divorce issues before things get expensive for Don Jr.

Here’s your list of Republicans that are just fine with slavery:

GEO Group filed the congressmen’s letter with U.S. District Court in the Central District of California on March 12 as part of the Novoa v. GEO Group suit. It argues that immigrants should not be able to sue prison companies because they aren’t employees there, and that paying them $1 per day for their work is lawful. The letter also said that forced labor saves the government money and improves detainees’ morale.

Congressmen wrote that the work program’s purpose is to “(1) enhance detention operations and services through detainee productivity; and to (2) reduce the negative impact of confinement through decreased idleness, improved morale, and fewer disciplinary incidents.”

“Unless your agencies act to intervene in these lawsuits, immigration enforcement efforts will be thwarted,” the letter reads.

The letter was signed by Lamar Smith, Jody Hice, Matt Gaetz, Steve King, Mike Rogers, Paul Gosar, Andy Biggs, Louie Gohmert, Dana Rohrabacher, Paul Cook, Scott Taylor, Earl “Buddy” Carter, John Ratcliffe, Duncan Hunter, Bob Gibbs, Barry Loudermilk, Brian Babin, and John Rutherford.

Telltale (a former Jehovah’s Witness who is now an atheist) weighs in on YouTube with a brief thank you to Stephen Hawking and his work in science.

He also weighs in on the now over three thousand videos on YouTube from Christians gloating over him being in Hell. He dissects a particular video from a person who appears to be an EMT or firefighter recording the video in his uniform and at his workplace.

That guy is seriously creepy: He is positively giddy over his thought that Stephen Hawking is being punished forever for the finite crime of non-belief in something with no evidence.

Ugh. The thing is that as Christians, we are taught that people going to Hell is worthy of mourning over. We shouldn’t want people to be punished for all eternity, that is exactly antithetical to the point of the Gospel message. We should be trying to minister to as many people as possible, and feeling disappointment for everyone we are unable to reach before they pass on. I don’t know where this whole “I’m glad so-and-so is in Hell” bullshit got started, but it’s a ridiculously anti-Christian sentiment.

If they’re in immigration detention, they haven’t been duly convicted of a crime. They’re awaiting their possible potential day in court; if convicted, the sentence is likely to be deportation.

OK: some background (not that it would make much difference to xenophobic wingers): Lizbeth Mateo, despite that “undocumented” status” sounds like a perfect poster-child for the DACA program: brought here at 14, went to college, went to law school, passed the bar, set up her own practice, etc. Except for her immigration status, she sounds like a model citizen (which basically she HAS to be for the DACA program). Yet assclowns like Walsh seem to make no distinctions between people like Mateo and the guy at the carwash who sneaked across the border last week.
Though this:

Mateo was denied for the DACA program in 2015 because she briefly traveled to Mexico in 2013 as part of a campaign to see how border agents would react when they re-entered the country.

I was raised by my grandparents and great-grandmother, all rural pious German Texas Lutherans. I never heard a word about hell. Be the best person you can, love and take care of your neighbor (including taking over a casserole), love Jesus, don’t worry about where you go when you die. Other things were simply ignored.

My Episcopal priest and I have discussed this, and it became more poignant when his adult son died last year. We don’t believe in heaven or hell, because any God that would divide and punish and reward that way isn’t much of a God. And if people think that should be the focus of any religion, they’re doing it wrong.

Speaking of immigrants who came here as children, I recently received a letter written by my great grandfather in 1936 to a cousin in Germany. In many ways, quite sad as his brother had just died tragically in a fire and his only surviving brother was chronically ill and died a few months later. But it allowed me to hear his “voice” where I never had before. I saw a man who came here young and worked hard and was proud of his family and successes but hadn’t forgotten his roots.

Seems pretty likely he’d just give Cali the Puerto Rico treatment.
