Speaking of beavers, I saw a wild one in the woods while I was up at the lake. What surprised us all about it was that beavers look vastly different when they’re dry than when they’re wet. It looked a little like a bedraggled porcupine. We had trouble figuring out what it was until we saw its tail.

The Friday News Dump is dead. Every day is a just stupid crazy. The Trumpers went full EHRMAGHERD! over Trump shaking hands with a dictator which no doubt should win a Nobel Peace Prize (just on the handshake alone according to Charlie Derp). Meanwhile brown families are being torn apart and told asylum is no more.

One race not mentioned of late:

Early voting begins in Utah primary featuring Kennedy vs. Romney race

Romney will probably win his Primary, into which he was forced because the convention was stacked for the nutter he’s running against.

Romney will then win in the fall because God has already told the Mormons this is their duty.

That and white American Christianity’s tacit surrender to white supremacism. Of course, Romney’s old enough to remember when Mormonism’s white supremacy was quite overt.

Lots of butthurt in SBC threads, e.g.:

What has happened the past few years is that some SBC pastors and/or congregations have either:
1) realized that the SBC’s racist past is bad for their brand;
2) have come to agree that the SBC’s racist past was indeed morally abhorrent.

However, the Trumpers in the crowd are having none of it.

I have a question about some of the comments in the last thread about the pissing match over white southerners.

I can certainly understand any white people not wanting to be thrown into one big group, especially if you are a Democrat.

And I know Brian J. can upset some people with some of his comments.

But since a majority of the south is very Republican Red…who the hell is doing the voting?

If it is not a white majority, who is it?

And if it is a white majority, then isn’t Brian’s point legit???

Sorry for not understanding. But it seems rather a waste of time to be going off on that when there are bigger issues. Solving the issue of white voters being the majority of why the south is Red seems to be more important and where the actual debate lies.

The good news is that the SBC is in frank decline according to its own numbers.

The denomination is down to its “lowest baptisms since 1946; lowest membership since 1990; lowest worship attendance since 1996,” according to historical analysis from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

“The true bad news is that when you put last year in the context of all previous years, it indicates the SBC is in the midst of a decline that shows no signs of either slowing down or turning around,” said Chuck Kelly, the seminary’s president.

The butthurt fundamentalists at the SBC meeting are correct in one thing: the non-Trumper faction of the SBC will indeed split and shrink the SBC.

In the end, the politics of American churches go the way of all human institutions - groups split.

Many of the rightwingers who are SBC type of Baptists don’t want to be Calvinists so they are stuck between the Reformed fundamentalists on one side, and the neo-woken SBC gang on the other.

Still, we ought to be wary, because the change in American religious activity is only slowly, very slowly, on the decline.

Even as the SBC declines, independent fundamentalist churches spring up.

I know a guy that tried to save a raccoon from a big trash dumpster. He thought it couldn’t get out.

So, he grabbed a long thin tree branch and as he stuck into the container, the raccoon raced up the branch, bit his hand and ran off.

He had to go through rabies treatments because they had no way of knowing if the raccoon was rabid. They would have had to be able to trap it and test it.

He won’t be doing that again.

Not sure if trying to catch the raccoon through an open window 23 floors up would end well. It would either try to run away, attack the rescuer, or jump inside and run around the building. Raccoons are like cats: they can climb up very high, and can climb right down once they get hungry or thirsty enough. Just leave the critter alone.

Yeah, there is that. The sudden appearance of a would-be rescuer would probably just cause the poor thing to feel cornered. I just hope the poor guy doesn’t fall on the way down, it’d be a shame for such a brave and suddenly-beloved animal to meet an ignominious end at the hands of Lady Gravity.

Sadly, in the other special election in Wisconsin (AD 42), Rep Jon Plumer has defeated Democrat Ann Groves Lloyd 53% to 45% to 2% for third-party candidate Gene Rubinstein. Why?

Well, a certain junior senator endorsed her but not Frostman. This isn’t a flippant observation; Ms. Groves Lloyd deleted some rather intemperate old tweets during the contest.

Mr. Trump had an idea about how to counter the nuclear threat posed by North Korea, which he got after speaking to Russian President Vladimir Putin : If the U.S. stopped joint military exercises with the South Koreans, it could help moderate Kim Jong Un’s behavior. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis used an approach that aides say can work: “He says, ‘Your instincts are absolutely correct,’ and then gets him [the president] to do the exact opposite of what his instincts say,” said one person close to the White House. Mr. Trump dropped the idea, although he has ordered aides to give the exercises a low profile, eliminating press releases and briefings about them.

I confess to an occasional weakness of watching those house-flipping shows when I visit family with cable TV service. Like you say, the common theme is finding a property that shouldn’t require more than cosmetic improvements (which is sensible from a buyer’s POV) and making those improvements as cheaply as possible (which is sensible from the potential seller’s POV). The underlying message is the flipper gets as much money as possible while sticking the buyer with a shitty property that will probably need further work down the road. IOW, the seller absolves himself from any responsibility to sell a quality product.

House flipping also artificially raises neighborhood property values and taxes, even on houses that have not been improved.

It would also help to wear a slightly shorter jacket. The rule of thumb (fingers, actually) is the bottom of the jacket should just touch your curled-up fingers if you make a loose fist with the jacket hem inside it. Trump’s jacket looks about 2-3 inches too long by that rule. It’s also cut too large, which makes it look like he’s a kid wearing his daddy’s jacket.

And yes, Trump is a candidate for the Big&Tall shop, but it’s possible for a fat guy to look sharp in a well-tailored suit, especially if he’s supposedly a billionaire.

In China, one of the engines driving up property values to the stratosphere was investment buyers nabbing several properties and just sitting on them hoping for a profit. They didn’t even bother fitting them out for rental income. (In China, you buy a bare “house” — a flat in a high rise — and decorate it to your liking with flooring, paint, tiles, furniture, etc.)

It got so bad that finally the government had to limit each home buyer to two properties per family. The unintended consequence of that policy was an increase in the divorce rate, as divorced couples could then double the number of properties they could own.

re: #87 Backwoods_Sleuth

heh…just had a raccoon visit the front porch.
dogs are not pleased.

In the early 1970’s I spent several summers as a counselor in a Boy Scout camp in Pennsylvania. In those days you could keep raccoons and skunks as pets.

One year two young raccoons were ‘found’ by scouts and taken to the nature area. The cooks adopted them as pets. On the final day of camp, the staff had their annual group picture taken. The cooks decided that it would be really neat to have the raccoons perch on their shoulders for the photograph.

So at the appointed time, the cooks appeared in crisp starched whites with the raccoons on their shoulders. As soon as the raccoons found themselves surrounded by 40 camp staff, they got nervous. And climbed to the highest point they could find. Which was the cooks heads. Still feeling unsteady they dug in with their claws.

I still remember the looks on the cooks faces as they tried to carefully wave everybody away in the hopes that the raccoons would feel safe enough to climb down.

Needless to say, the cooks white uniforms were much the worse for wear after this adventure. No longer crisp, starched, or white. And rather torn up too.

One of the nature guys took them home over the winter. The next summer he said that they were really docile when young. However when they got older, they split for the woods next to his house and never came back. And that he had watched several neighborhood dogs getting chased from the woods.

The raccoons were named Bonnie and Clyde after a movie popular at the time. Though it later turned out that they needed to be renamed Barney and Claudia.

And I won’t go into the barehanded skunk hunting we did over several evenings one camp week.

However, I also believe the entire EM spectrum is a common good, and all broadcasters should have to qualify annually to keep their licenses.

I was really impressed with the voter contact and gotv done by all the Democratic candidates in VA 10. Jennifer Wexton is a State Senator and appears to have support of State party. I received a letter from Gov Northam and a live call from my state delegate in her support. I think she has a good chance of finally booting out Comstock. I believe that the district was gerrymandered for Comstock’s Republican predecessor, Wolf. So this has been a long time in coming.

At my precinct voting station, I was able to chat with Alison Friedman (her voter outreach was amazing) and Lindsay Stover’s husband. I believe that all the other Democratic candidates had representatives there as well.

But with the constant fighting of public spending on public humanities, I wonder how long the whole operation can go on.

However, I also believe the entire EM spectrum is a common good, and all broadcasters should have to qualify annually to keep their licenses.

I also believe that communities should own their own cable distribution systems, that go to each property. I’m clearly on the minority on this one as many Americans are still content for private companies to run cables on their land. Around here it is Cox and ATT.

Cable TV really started in Everett WA, because they couldn’t get the Seattle channels very well. They put large antennas, cut for each frequency, up on hills and ran coax to people’s houses. That’s why CATV stands for Community Antenna Television. People need to be reminded of that.

re: #202 ckkatz

I was really impressed with the voter contact and gotv done by all the Democratic candidates in VA 10. Jennifer Wexton is a State Senator and appears to have support of State party. I received a letter from Gov Northam and a live call from my state delegate in her support. I think she has a good chance of finally booting out Comstock. I believe that the district was gerrymandered for Comstock’s Republican predecessor, Wolf. So this has been a long time in coming.

At my precinct voting station, I was able to chat with Alison Friedman (her voter outreach was amazing) and Lindsay Stover’s husband. I believe that all the other Democratic candidates had representatives there as well.

This is the first time in my 30 years of voting in this district that I have seen this level of energy and enthusiasm on the Democratic side. I truly felt bad that I could only pick one.

They were all great candidates. You are correct about the district. Wolf got elected not long before my parents met and my parents are grandparents now. I’ve lived here my whole life pretty much. I think Comstock is in serious trouble. Wexton will be able to get a WaPo endorsement over her which means something here. I voted Lindsey but I liked the other five in their own ways.

Yup, Stewart is a very polarizing figure. And a lot of observers are predicting that his presence on the Republican ticket will help mobilize the Democratic gotv.

When he was Prince William County Board Chair, he was known for directing the county police to raid Latinos thought to be immigrants, like the current ICE program. I seem to remember the county ended up paying a good amount in legal fees and settlements. As well as leo salaries enforcing non-county issues.

So, here’s the thing. Sanford got close to 30,000 votes as the anti-yam candidate. (And the third place Republican, who got about 2,000 votes, ran as a Dem last time around, so I don’t know what his story is.) But I digress…how many of the Sanford voters are disenchanted enough with the yam to vote for the Dem in the general? 1/3? 2/3? If the percentages stay roughly the same in the general, he’d need 2/3 of Sanford voters to flip to Dem.

So, I guess what I’m saying is (sigh) most likely, welcome Representative Katie Arrington, yamfangirl. That’s South Carolina—same as it was in Petigru’s 1860— too small for a republic and too large for an insane asylum.

And the story of Everett was also the story of Astoria, Oregon (which is another claimant to very early CATV service) was also the story of lots of other small places just close enough to early TV cities for a big antenna to bring signals to viewers who couldn’t easily get TV at home otherwise.

There’s been a parallel evolution in the cryptocurrency world. Bitcoin was created specifically to eliminate the middleman — banks or payment processors — to create a peer-to-peer exchange system. Since then, nearly every new crypto project has been started by an organization of some kind with a “project team” serving as a kind of board of directors. The organization in effect acts as the middleman, directing the future of the token and the blockchain. Ethereum is one prominent example, but there are hundreds more. And they get a lot of money from people who don’t seem at all bothered by the cognitive dissonance of a centralized authority using a “decentralized” blockchain to provide services and incidentally make loads of money for the project leaders.

IOW there are very few truly decentralized projects like Bitcoin, because I guess people can’t quite wrap their heads around an ecosystem with no “leader.”

Trump the Reality TV star only had to be himself to act his role. DeNiro the professional actor had to prepare himself for each role he’s taken on — as does every other decent actor — because THAT’S THEIR JOB. You don’t win an Oscar for just being yourself.

They are not native to Europe but were imported for their fur in the 1920’s and then intentionally released into the wild for hunting .

But as we know, raccoons love civilization and in densely populated Germany, they are a real blight on any semi-urban area (and that describes a lot of Germany, with half of the population living in a town/village of 50,000 or less).

TV Guide Cover, June 12-18, 1982: Why American TV Is So Vulnerable to Foreign Disinformation

I came to Germany in the late 1980’s and certainly did not expect to find the same level of gung-ho Americanism that I had grown used to in Reagan’s America.

But even though I am far from a chauvinist when it comes to America, I was a bit offended by the clearly false and misleading tone of a lot of TV reporting on the USA.

Later read that that East Germany had successfully insinuated people into very high levels of program planning in the German semi-state-run TV networks to promote an anti-American worldview.

Needless to say I read that in a newspaper, there were never any TV reports on that…

The entire real estate business would hate me for suggesting this, but I propose that any income derived from house flipping be taxed at the highest personal income tax rate.

Also, each flipper should be required to pay a fee to the local tax district in which the property sits.

Home ownership is indirectly subsidized by federal mortgage income deductions and housing loan guarantees. It is only fair that income from housing sales be taxed at a special rate.

It’s sort of a can’t-entirely-win situation on how to use the character.

A more serious version wouldn’t fit into the lighter mood or the shortened arc. Like, create a character who’s willing to side with Hela on short notice but also not commit to anything ugly that she’s hankering to do and eventually turn, all in a very small window of appearance. I mean, add up Skurge’s screen time…he’s got maybe twelve minutes to set an impression. Ambitious idiot in over his head glosses quick and allows the critical dramatic (aesthetic) moment to happen, even with all the other changes from the comicbook Ragnarok.

And Karl Urban is good at charmingly oafish. Might as well tap that resource.

re: #251 Hecuba’s daughter

If it’s not in the written agreement, it means nothing. Especially with Trump, whatever is said can be unsaid. He contradicts himself on a daily basis. The question is whether there are enough Republicans who will finally say “Enough”

Heck, I make sure that any agreements about the kids with my ex-wife are in e-mail form so I can refer to them…
