Words & Music by Courtney Barnett

Don’t come with your arms swinging
Throw them around me
Some kind of sweet relief
I hope you never leave
It’s all the same to me

Just bring yourself
You know your presence is
Present enough
I got a front row seat
It’s all the same to me

I spend a lotta my time
Doin’ a whole lotta nothing
I know you’re doin’ your best
I think you’re doin’ just fine

I know it’s been a long week
And now you’re takin’ your time
Some kindness goes around
Some kinda backfires
It’s all the same to me

Ignore that voice
It puts you down
You make your choice
I’m here for you
It’s all the same to me

I got a lot on my mind
But I dunno how to say it
I know you’re doin’ your best
I think you’re doin’ just fine

Keep on keepin’ on yknow you’re not alone
And I know all your stories but I’ll listen to them again

And if you move away yknow I’ll miss your face
It’s all the same to me yknow it’s all the same to me

St. Paul held the republican convention in 2008. The area around the civic center was in a lockdown mode and none of the delegates visited any of the local restaurants, and it was too big a hassle for anyone local to go there, so the restaurants lost a lot of money and were pissed as hell. The county cops were herding people onto bridges and then arresting everyone. I never stopped hearing helicopters at my house. The whole week was awful. And Sarah Palin.

AJ Delgado Needs Your Gofundme Cash, But Not Like A Welfare Queen, THIS IS DIFFERENT (Wonkette, more at the link):

AJ Delgado, she’s this chick. Used to work saying nice things about Trump, had a baby with a married dude on the Trump campaign (whose own wife was already knocked up when he knocked up Delgado), has been dealing with his shit for a year now, got fired from her superpac job because reasons, probably supersexist ones we are just guessing.

Mommy, How Are Icky Trump Surrogates’ Adultery Love Babies Made?

So they are both terrible, obviously, but Jason Miller, the easter-egg-faced man who didn’t get to be Trump’s communications director because DONALD TRUMP HATES EXTRAMARITALIZING WHEN YOUR WIFE IS BLESSEDLY CARRYING YOUR EXCELLENT GENES INTO POSTERITY, is maybe worse.

Typhoid scare at Boston-area day care after child diagnosed

NORTH QUINCY - Some parents are concerned after a child at a day care and preschool in Massachusetts was diagnosed with typhoid fever, CBS Boston reports. The Bright Horizons center in North Quincy is closed while teachers and students get tested for possible exposure.

“My primary concern is the safety of my child,” said one mother whose infant attends Bright Horizons.

Ann Scales, spokeswoman for the state Department of Public Health, on Thursday confirmed one case of typhoid fever.

“The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is working with Bright Horizons and the Quincy Public Health Department to prevent the spread of the disease,” Scales said.

Bright Horizons spokesperson Bridget Perry said center officials were told that the child had traveled abroad recently.

A letter to parents from the state public health department stated: “A toddler in your child’s class has been diagnosed with typhoid fever, a diarrheal illness caused by bacteria called Salmonella Typhi.”

The man who printed a cover story arguing Black Americans were genetically inferior, on a magazine that did not have one Black editor on it at the time it was printed, should just shut up right now about tribalism

There is absolutely nothing at all wrong about calling people out for racism like this.

But that has been a major tactic of the “alt-right”: to position white supremacism and fascism merely as points along the accepted political spectrum instead of as anathema to American values and the things Americans have fought and died fighting against.

I don’t think our negotiations with the DPRK are going to go well.

From Rodong Sinmun

Foolish Wile of Those Oblivious of Reality

The U.S. drastically increased the funds for espionage against the DPRK and is scheming to intensify ideological and cultural poisoning against it through e-media and radio.

A recent plenary meeting of the U.S. Senate discussed the matter and the related act was passed with a unanimous approval, the keynote of which is to diversify the means and contents of information influx into the DPRK and increase the aid funds to scale up intelligence against it.

U.S. politicians made it a matter of duty to intensify propaganda broadcasting against the DPRK, which was mainly done through radio, by use of diverse media. It was also formalized to use all e-media and information technologies including USB cards, mobile phones and wireless internet as means for ideological and cultural poisoning against the DPRK, and to spread corrupt music, films and dramas of the U.S. and other capitalist countries in the DPRK as diversification of its contents.

This clearly shows that the U.S. conspiratorial moves to divide and paralyze the DPRK have reached an extremely dangerous phase.

The U.S. has persisted in psychological warfare aimed at internal destabilization of the DPRK through espionage, propaganda broadcasting and awful propaganda literature century after century in a bid to stamp out the ideology and social system of the DPRK.

The U.S. is making no scruple of committing mean and base acts by using modern sci-tech means in a bid to spread corrupt bourgeois ideology and culture within the DPRK.

However, it is no more than a wild dream of the foolish ones oblivious of history and reality.

They have really gamed us. They have little or nothing to gain from negotiating with us, just by getting Trump to show up, they have staged a major diplomatic coup.

Fox Cuts Ties With Guest Who Cited John McCain To Defend Torture (Huffington Post)

Retired Air Force Lt. Gen. Tom McInerney will no longer appear on Fox News or Fox Business Network after a Thursday appearance in which he claimed that torture “worked on” Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who was tortured during the Vietnam War.

A Fox spokeswoman told CNN’s Brian Stelter that Fox News and Fox Business Network will stop inviting McInerney as a guest.

“McInerney will no longer be on Fox Business Network or Fox News Channel,” a Fox Business Network spokeswoman confirmed to HuffPost Friday morning, adding that his contract as a contributing military analyst for the network ended last August.

On top of everything else, we are dealing with aggressive, intimidating sociopathic personality types who delight in getting a rise out of people and then deriding how we “over-react”.

And no, we do not have accept or respect these differing points of view. We need to call them out for what they are and not let them dictate the terms of engagement.

Humvees failed airdrop

VIDEO: Soldier Who Deliberately Destroyed Airdropped Humvees Found Guilty, Discharged

A former U.S. Army sergeant has been found guilty for his role in a stunt that led to the intentional destruction of three Humvees dropped from a cargo plane during a training exercise. They hurtled to the ground after their parachute strings were severed.

Sgt. John T. Skipper was convicted in a general court-martial hearing Wednesday of three counts of “destroying military property with a value of more than $500” and providing a false official statement, Christian Marquardt, a spokesman for the 7th Army Training Command, told NPR in a statement.

The chaps on the ground seem highly amused by the spectacle.

O’Reilly is obviously the classic predatory sociopath. The first thing they do is to attack the person who sees through them and calls them out.

I have seen people like that all over the political spectrum, but when it combines with RW ideology, it is particulary odious. I do not want to assert that there is a direct causal connection between the personality disorder and the ideology, but the RW movement is really full of such people.

McCain and I have very little in common politically. About all we have in common is we were both in the Navy.

Demanding he apologise? Oh hell no. After how Trump has treated him (including his recent Nuremberg rally in Michigan where he went out of his way to attack McCain again)?

Because of the low pressure over Nevada (see here: ssd.noaa.gov ) also keeping the temps cool, the idea is that we’ll get some precip out of the marine layer.

There is the issue that Liberace’s ancestors (and my own) at least came through Ellis Island and did not cross an open border.

There are too many economic interests who benefit from from the current system of immigration to allow for the sort of comprehensive, humane reform that we need.

It might involve closing and controlling our border more tightly but it would also have to involve amnesty and citizenship for current residents.

Michelle Obama, speaking last Saturday, about women voting for Trump. If you ever wanted to see what being nice and frustrated at the same time sounds like, this is it:

“We’re still at that stage where we’re trying to figure out what it means to be women and what we think of ourselves and what we think of each other. And you know sorry, in light of this last election, I’m concerned about us as women and how we think about ourselves and about each other and what’s really going on. I mean, I think more about what is going on in our heads where we let that happen, you know?

So I do wonder what young girls are dreaming about if we’re still there, when the most qualified person running was a woman and look what we did instead. I mean, that says something about where we are…Forget about everybody else—that’s what away have to explore.

Because if we as women are still suspicious of one another, if we still have this crazy, crazy bar for each other that we don’t have for men, if we’re still doing that today, if we’re not comfortable with the notion that a woman could be our president—and compared to what? You know? It is frustrating to see a lot of men blow it—and win.”

University is often the first place they are exposed to ideas outside of the religious dogma they were raised with. Or where they are exposed to books beyond school textbooks and the Bible.

That would be blowing it up again, satellite radar has confirmed the site is useless. They set off another warhead in there and they will irradiate part of China.

Mary Fallin being elected was the specific reason my wife and I moved from Oklahoma.

Shortly after she was elected (after the housing crash), she pushed a bill for “driving safety” promoted by specialist physicians who were not making as much money at the time to require people with “medical conditions” to get a sign off from a specialist for each condition before they could renew a license.

I received a letter from the state saying I had to see eleven specialists, in November, and had one month to get the signatures or lose my license. (All were related to epilepsy.)

Even if a specialist only charges $1,000 (plus any tests), that would be $11,000 every year to hold a driver’s license.

It is unsurprising today the largest percentage of uninsured motorists and unlicensed motorists in any state are in Oklahoma.

She’s definitely that. When we lived in Ponca City, the city council promoted a zero-interest loan of tax money for a local church to build a community centre. Mary Fallin came out strongly in support of that to promote “Christian values.”

Yes I listened to the whole routine. I’d not heard of Ms. Wolf before.

The complaints of conservative snowflakes (especially media outlets) calling out truth to power were particularly self-serving. The point of satirising the powerful (such as jesters of old), like John Stewart, Stephen Colbert, or Michelle Wolf, is to call out their absurdities (and at least try to shame them a little bit).

So, though it certainly won’t be pointed out as such, Pompeo’s comment simply points out the whole North Korean game wrt their nuclear program - basically: international blackmail. First, extort the “West” (i.e. the US) with threats to develop a nuke unless paid off: then, when that scam dried up, actually cobble up an A-bomb or two: set them off, and then magnanimously offer to not build any more, if handsomely paid off. A simple racket - simple enough even for Donald Trump to understand - but of course, the whole affair is going to a matter of media spin.

Spin A): US gives in to North Korean extortion: offers payoff plan for “denuclearization” agreement.

Spin B): Tough negotiator/Nobel nominee Donald Trump engineers brilliant “denuclearization” pact.
