Left hanging at the end of the last thread, referring to low voter turnout in US elections compared to Ireland’s referendum yesterday.

I think the problem is more low voter turnout in swing states, not all states.

re: #289 A hollow voice says, Covfefe.

75.3% in California 11/8/2016.

re: #324 Anymouse 🌹

68.6% in Nebraska on the same day.

Two counties flipped from Obama to Trump (the largest two, Lancaster and Douglas), one county flipped from Romney to Clinton (a very rural county with a couple small villages.)

If every one of the voters in Nebraska who didn’t vote had voted for Hillary Clinton, it would not have made a difference; Trump would have still won (though Clinton might have peeled off one or two electoral votes).

There’s a Reason Conservative Christians Are So Bad At Fact-Checking the News (Goes to Hemant Mehta’s Friendly Atheist blog at Patheos, more at the link):

It [literal reading of the Bible by conservatives] leads to an interesting question: Is there a connection between the way conservative Christians read the Bible and how they interpret the news?

That’s what Francesca Tripodi, a postdoctoral scholar at the University of Virginia, set to find out. She just released a report (link to report at Patheos) documenting her initial findings, and the results are incredibly intriguing.

Tripodi studied two groups of Republicans in depth — a college group and a women’s group — to see how they “fact-checked” the news. And it turns out they’re not very good at it. (Surprise.) For example, one person she spoke to talked about how she researched candidates for upcoming elections: She Googled them.

“I literally type it in Google, and read the first three to five articles that pop up, because those are the ones that are obviously the most clicked and the most read, if they’re at the top of the list, or the most popular news outlets. So, I want to get a good sense of what other people are reading. So, that’s pretty much my go-to.”

That completely ignores how certain articles rise to the top of Google search results because people are searching for or talking about them. If we did a search for “Ted Cruz,” because of something newsworthy he said, the top results may include sites that routinely put out misinformation or spin the comment in a particular direction. Facebook faces a different problem, which is that our news feeds all look very different based on our preferences, likes, friends, and what we typically click on. I tend to see a lot of generally accurate and fact-based news sources in mine… but that’s exactly what the people who see Infowars would say.

But these people didn’t know that or get that. They just assumed the top results for them were automatically reliable.

That represents a fairly typical human trait: Things can’t be too complicated. In this case, what most people want, and assume, is that one set of rules applies. They want the same pattern that applies to a search for the closest Chinese restaurant to apply to information about politics. A further problem is that sites like Fox know this, and know how to skew the results.

I would not call Trump the “leader of the free world”.

That last mantle is being picked up by the PMs of Germany, Canada, etc.

Trump has abdicated any sense of world leadership.

Regarding religious fundamentalism and “facts” - of course there is a connection between buying into fundamentalist ideologies and not being self-honest about facts.

There are many religious people in this world, easily the majority of the world’s population. But being religious is one thing, while rigidity in beliefs is another.

Either one is emotionally and intellectually secure enough to explore various, and differing, ideas, or one has to seek safety.

A sixteen year-old teenager here was convicted of attempted sexual assault on a teacher. He was given probation.

The student entered an empty classroom (other than the teacher), and pulled a knife on her. She was able to escape.

According to an affidavit of probable cause filed in the case, the student had gone to the classroom of a female teacher before school on Nov. 20. The teacher told police the student got up and got something out of a backpack, walked around to the back of the teacher’s desk, opened up a knife and pushed her against a wall. The teacher reported the student demanded she take off her clothes and she shoved him, causing him to fall over a bookshelf and she ran out of the classroom. However, the teacher said, the student ran after her, grabbing her and grabbing her breast.

The woman ran to another teacher’s classroom and the student fled the school. He was apprehended a short distance from the school. A pocket knife was found in his possession.

(more at the Scottsbluff Star-Herald)

This is one example of the crappy argument from gun fetishists about knives. The teacher was able to put distance between herself and the teen, and at that moment his knife was useless. A gun would be effective over a great distance.

My brother keeps me informed of the fantasies and hysterics of the Colorado RWNJ mob. Right now, it is a huge thing for them to attribute all crime, congestion, rudeness, and litter to hippies and other undesirables who come in as weed tourists. This does not cause them to donate the profits or tax revenue to, say, helping the poor, since this would only bring in more weed buyers.

He is certainly no friend of feminism. For a while, he was making videos on that and was roundly spanked (figuratively).

He’s gone back to physics videos, which is his field. The video above simply explains why the laws of thermodynamics preclude the claims of the company (and gives a helping of scorn to science journalists who are more interested in writing click bait than science articles).

The Hivites (Hebrew: Hivim, חוים) were one group of descendants of Canaan, son of Ham, according to the Table of Nations in Genesis 10 (10:17). A variety of proposals have been made, but beyond the references in the Bible to Hivites in the land of Canaan, no consensus has been reached about their precise historical identity.

Great song, thanks for the link.
Regarding the Expanse (whose Amazon announcement had me literally jumping with joy first thing in the morning), i’m hoping it wasn’t a slip of the tongue/misquote when Bezos mentioned that “It will be a Prime original in the coming seasons.”
Seasons, as in plural.
Especially since the original plan was apparently for seven seasons to cover the events of the books (the last of which should be coming out by the end of next year assuming no delays - of which there was only one for 7 books, all of which are recommended BTW).

Also in case you were wondering just how dedicated the show’s fans are, the “Save the Expanse” fan campaign included social media efforts, airplane fliers, cakes and literally launching a small model of the Roci (the ship featured in the series) into space:

Or further back … to Nixon and his aide Roger Ailes’s for “GOP TV”

Gingrich is really the one who pushed and popularized the scorched earth approach - no compromise, demonize opponents, load your words - words like ‘sick, perverted, evil’ over any and all policy differences. He showed the GOP that their base were hungry for an all-out war, take no prisoners style based on personally destroying your opposition for hints of corruption while being thoroughly corrupt yourself. You could say any damn thing you wanted, no matter how untrue, and as long as you never backed down in the face of being proven wrong, the GOP base would believe YOU over the truth.

The success of this method really led to the launching of Fox News.

Gingrich is sort of like the Anti-John the Baptist for Trump’s AntiChrist. He paved the way and showed that the base was ready for and would reward that kind of behavior.

Sure, folks like LBJ were ruthless sons of bitches in private. Gingrich showed that, in the GOP at least, you could be a ruthless son of a bitch publicly, and still get elected.

She never wanted to be First Lady, evidence of her husband’s affairs are all over the news every day, her husband is the most vile example of humanity, and she just had a surgery which (if it’s what I think it is) is probably still pretty painful.

What surgery?
I am sorry I do not follow the current presidential family.

The surgery is an embolization, which can be used to treat a variety of kidney conditions. The White House put out that the condition was benign before the procedure began.

Essentially, a catheter is threaded up the femoral artery to the kidney in question, and blood vessels to the affected area are blocked. This causes blood flow to that area to cease and the affected area to die.

Various medical sites I’ve looked at about this (caution, I am not a doctor, and I don’t play one on TV) say recovery can be swift or could take up to a week.

Considering this is the First Lady, I imagine Walter Reed would err on the side of caution to ensure things are going well. That said, we are well past a week.

‘Recovery’ is a broad term in medicine. I discharge people on day one after surgery and call them ‘recovered’, but I also know that they aren’t going to really feel like themselves for anywhere up to a few months. Even though embolisation is minimally invasive, it still hurts while the tissue dies, and she’s probably still peeing blood and not feeling awesome. Given the rest of the shit she’s in the middle of (her stepchildren are mobsters, and her husband is a degenerate human who is the world’s most hated individual), I think it’s totally normal that she’s out of the public eye.

There is every possibility that Liverpool’s German goalkeeper, Loris Karius, will commit ritual seppuku on his return from Ukraine tonight.

Occasionally, a professional goalkeeper will have a “howler”- a mistake that results in an opponent scoring a goal- so dumb that it doesn’t seem possible. He had two today in the 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Campion’s Cup final. No bigger stage in European football.

You gotta watch this:

What with Mrs. FBW and The Younger Boy in Hawaii, and The Older Boy at work, Rango and I were left to our own devices - in my case LITERAL devices - I just got a bunch of 145 year old Elgin keywind watches - 1 watch and 6 bare nekkid movements. Most are in working order. Well, kinda. Each has its own issues, some minor, some major.

Anyhow, it was time to take a break, and Rango’d been bugging me for a while - I couldn’t walk around the house without him following me expectantly. So we went for a walk in Laurelwood Park/Sugarloaf Open Space.

The Buckeyes are all blooming. You can see how many there are - just look for the trees with the white spots

Along the trail, there’s a patch of Fairy Lanterns - aka Calochortus albus. I guess we know where one of our fellow Bay Area lizards got her handle…

Calochortus? Is that you?

And speaking of Bay Area lizards, there were a gazillion of them, skittering off the path as we approached. This is the only one who let us get close enough for a picture.

I caught this pic of a bumblebee, which had been running around and around the inside of this poppy - collecting pollen? And behind the poppy? Well, let’s just say “They seek him here, they seek him there, those Frenchies seek him everywhere!”

And here’s my hiking buddy, near the peak, wondering whether we have to go as far to get back to the car. (Yep.)

Are we there yet, Dad?

These journalists should absolutely name names here. Trump is lying that the source of the reporters’ statements doesn’t exist when everyone who was at that briefing knows the name of the senior administration official.

There are several projects proposing to record real estate transactions on blockchains. I doubt most will succeed, since they all require a person to enter the information with a computer correctly (no typos!) into the ledger. The principle is sound, but replacing
paper records made by fallible humans with blockchain entries made by fallible humans seems to be sideways progress. OTOH having an internationally viewable record of RE ownership would make transactions potentially more transparent.

The trick would be to convince local government entities to adopt the new blockchain method.

Some of the projects would allow investors in the RE to receive rental payments in the blockchain currency/token, which could then be converted into Bitcoin or localcash.

The news needs to talk about it more, but I also think Mueller needs a press team.

re: #199 teleskiguy

Columbus never actually set foot in North America. He got as far as the Caribbean. His voyages did open door to other European expeditions to North America, including those settling in Roanoke, Jamestown, Plymouth, and ultimately what became the 13 colonies.

Trump’s ancestors are from Germany. They came long after the nation was settled. In fact, we have evidence that suggests his grandfather was here thanks to chain migration.

And North America was settled long before white men showed up (with their slaves in tow). Native Americans were here, and are still treated like second class citizens by Trump and other Americans.

If the GOP Congress wanted to accomplish anything, they would put a bill together ending this and funding a wall. It would be a cynical move, but they don’t even care that much.

re: #208 lawhawk

All truth.

I live ten miles from the akwasasne mohawk reservation in New York. Right on the border. The difference between how they are treated on the American side versus the Canadian side is astounding and eye opening

When subbing I have had students asked why natives “should be allowed in our (off the reservation) schools.”

I explained that their question is mighty small minded and that that idea is prejudice.

His ancestors did fuck all. Only one was even here before 1900, and that just barely.

And, by the way, between Karius’ two howlers was this sublime bit of skill from Gareth Bale, former Tottenham forward and current Wales International. The body control and athleticism in this goal is freakish:

Beautiful. Had to turn the sound off because of that idiot pretending to announce the game, but the goal itself was a delight.

Nice though in printing such a neg you’d probably have to do a bit of burning and dodging to get it to look a bit better to my eye. Especially along the under edge of that rail bridge track bed - still just a little dark to my eye.

Honest to Ullr true. His surname Warren was my grandfather’s middle name. My mom and dad almost named me Warren! But my dad - somehow but not - knew I was his only son, so he named me after himself.
