Looking at the side bar, this seems like a very big deal: Tribune Media Terminates $3.9B Sinclair Deal, Files Lawsuit:

Sinclair Broadcast Group’s $3.9 billion takeover of Tribune Media, which would have created a local TV giant reaching nearly two-thirds of U.S. TV households, is dead.

Tribune Media made the announcement early Thursday, with analysts expecting that it will now look for a different buyer for its 42 TV stations, network WGN America and other assets. The news comes after a series of developments that cast doubt over the transaction, which had been unveiled 15 months ago.

Tribune said that it “has terminated its merger agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. and that it has filed a lawsuit in the Delaware Chancery Court against Sinclair for breach of contract.” It added: “The lawsuit seeks compensation for all losses incurred as a result of Sinclair’s material breaches of the merger agreement.”

Enough With the Shit, Green Party. The Coming Midterms Are Too Important for Your Shenanigans

Let’s be clear, Green Party, at this point I’m convinced that you’re colluding with Russia just to piss America off. You’re the political equivalent of the guy who comes to basketball practice high and keeps missing free throws, causing the rest of us has to run suicides.

Fake Green Party Candidate Exposed as Having Ties to Republican Congressman

The former Green Party candidate in a congressional race has been exposed as a Republican plant with ties to the GOP congressman he supposedly sought to challenge

Michael Zak petitioned to run under the Green Party ticket in New York’s 27th congressional district, a seat currently held by Rep. Chris Collins. Zak’s candidacy petition listed as the official contact person Ross Kostecky, a local Republican operative who interned on Collins’s 2009 campaign for Erie County, New York executive, The Daily Beast has found.

Is anyone going to tell his orangeness that the idea that was being tossed around the pentagon (and never taken too seriously) was to move the tactical functions of the Air Force back into the Army and leave the strategic forces and the SPACE COMMAND in the Air Force.

It wasn’t to create another branch.

Oh, and as is her wont, her story of having to hold her nose and vote for Hillary Clinton has become more and more gut-wrenching. Back in November 2016, it was, “I never liked her, but I held my nose and voted for her.”

Now, almost 2 years later, “I stood in the voting booth for minutes, till my husband began to worry about me. It was so hard to vote for her. I swore I never would vote for That Woman! My conscience bothers me to this day!!”

Totally. I have ZERO sympathy for people who can’t be bothered to register as Democrats but don’t think they should be ‘shut out’ of the Democratic Party’s system for choosing the Democratic Party’s nominee for President.

this is so childish
your conscience can only bother you if you think you should have voted for one of the other options available- ie trump

as in most elections, there were only so many choices

consciences guides you to your sense of the rightness or wrongness of your decisions / behavior in the circumstances - the situation you are faced with

(and lets dispense with voting third party / opting out etc. we already know that IS a vote for the other guy)

re: #2 lawhawk

I’m not 100% disagreeing, but I think there’s more to it than that.

Trump sells empty triumphalism. “The best” as a notion, not as an quantifiable measure.

He targets people who want to feel a certain way—better in the sense of superior—and thus consume (purchase, vote for, invest in) so that they can merge their identity with the qualities they attribute to what they consume.

There are people who eat caviar and smoke cigars because of the immaterial qualities atrributed to them—cachet, image, prestige. There are people that buy shitty real estate because they can be convinced it’s a smart move that will make them big shots…and people who think they’re smarter than the average schmuck because they’ve just been convinced to jump into an new investment (emu farms! gold!).

Bower birds thinking. Aestheticism plus narcissism. Buying the sizzle not the steak.

But…

There are nationalists who view every new shiny weapon as a personal win, and government who sell martial strength as an ego enhancer. Look at how DPRK presents each new missile.

This is the latest US version of that. Militarism as performance piece. Real, very dangerous devices and strategic decisions being made to create a feeling of power and being in control.

This is not just a distraction, this is the stupid shit that people caught up in protecting their own egos do…on a national scale.

It’s the same instinct the loves the military as a symbol, but refuses to address the reality of war—it’s hard, it’s ugly, you’ll get hurt even if you win—and the reality of soldiers suffering.

At best case scenario, Space Force is another scam, and we need to start looking at where that money goes, and what companies are lobbying for what, and what’s being invoiced. But…we are governed by a narcissist who’s at the head of a coalition of groups defined by narcissistic and eliminationist thinking. They want this because it’s a shiny new demonstration of their total power…a novel exercise over life and death…continuous with all of the other ways that they insist that their whims are the only law.

Yeah, there is a LOT unsaid said here: while cancellation of big-money mergers aren’t, of themselves, uncommon, the Sinclair/Tribune deal seems to be something different, in that:
1) It would have been a major media consolidation.
2) The deal was (AFAICR) considered virtually a done deal (pending the usual regulatory hurdles, which are normally irrelevant)
3) The “acquiree” seldom resorts to the courts for anything .

Not that seeing RWNJ media giant Sinclair lose out (on anything) is particularly bad news - it’s just that this announcement seems to be missing (or ignoring) a number of background factors. Probably on purpose.

Turns out, government by sociopath doesn’t even work in a democratic system.

For what it’s worth, I think you’re 100% correct about what Trump is selling in the general sense, and it’s what he’s been selling for 40 years. A sense of wealthy/better/classiness that only really translates to a very specific demographic.

And you’re right about the nationalist take on this as well.

re: #86 Aucun pays pour les vieux ennemis

There’s an argument to be made that something like this would be much less likely to happen in a modern constitutional monarchy or even a unitary parliamentary republic vs our system with an independent/strong executive branch.

A Prime Minister as head of government would probably be much easier to toss aside than the separately elected head of a co-equal branch. Also, those systems tend to have stronger party apparatuses, which would make the rise of someone like Trump much less likely.

There’s plenty of reasons so few other nations have a system like ours, and this is probably moving up the list.

I think that fool is getting off on the attention and he is playing with people now to get more.

I saw a bit where he was complaining he was getting calls that threaten him, etc.

I suggest he leave the election race before November to maintain his safety.

Oh yeah, he was asked if he cost Danny O’Connor the election. He said no, Danny O’Connor cost himself the election and Troy Balderson cost Danny O’Connor the election.

There’s always the threat of corruption at any level of government. And a healthy bit of skepticism/distrust is probably always a good thing. The real test is going to be when Trump is out of office, whether we can re-establish normalcy, or if this is the new normal.

The “Tyranny” of government is imposed by people that the general population can (at least theoretically) vote out of office if they don’t like what the government is doing.

I had a discussion with a Libertarian once. He told me that, under his system, companies wouldn’t be allowed to exploit workers. But, no enforcement mechanism.

I asked, “Who’s going to stop them? What if they’re the ONLY employer in an area? Workers can’t just leave.”

He said, “But they’re not ALLOWED to exploit workers!”

Well, okay then. That’ll stop ‘em.

Libertarianism/Objectivism could only work in a situation where everyone already had enough to eat, shelter, healthcare etc., so that nobody HAD TO have a job, because once you’re in a “have to” situation, your freedom to, for example, turn down a job where you think the conditions are unsafe, is essentially gone.

The problem comes with worship of the SYSTEM, rather than the goals. What’s the point of the market? To provide for the needs of the population, to encourage advancement of individuals and the society, to create wealth for individuals and the society. Okay, so Capitalism, of all the proposed economic systems, probably does that best. BUT left to itself, Capitalism inevitably concentrates wealth and that leads to exploitation of the less wealthy. So, you need to regulate it. A clear-eyed, objective analysis makes that obvious.

But if you worship The Free Market, you can’t accept that it’s not self-policing. And you’ve substituted BELIEF for KNOWLEDGE.

I had an ant farm. I was second of 7, so there were many ant farms after mine.

Somewhere, in the back of my mind, I remember little glimmers of a story that I read as a kid, of ants building themselves into an antberg in a river, which ran into a cow, and ate it. Or took it home in tiny pieces, as ants do. I don’t remember the details.

re: #178 JordanRules

My gawd.

I noted the raid when it occurred yesterday, in an article from our regional newspaper. It was about 150 miles northeast of here.

In addition to those seized by ICE, a number of owners of businesses connected with that raid were seized in Minnesota and Las Vegas, charged with money laundering, wage theft, and tax evasion.

starherald.com (Scottsbluff, Nebr. Star-Herald, more at the link):

O’NEILL, Neb. — Federal immigration enforcement officers swept into this rural area on Wednesday morning, detaining dozens of workers from a local tomato greenhouse complex, a potato processing facility and a cattle feedlot.

In Nebraska and elsewhere, the operation by Homeland Security and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials snared 133 workers suspected of being in the country illegally, as well as 17 people connected to an alleged conspiracy to exploit illegal labor for profit, fraud and money laundering.

Federal search warrants were served as far away as Las Vegas and Minnesota in connection with the conspiracy. One man was led in handcuffs out of an O’Neill Mexican restaurant, and search warrants also were served at businesses or farms in Ainsworth, Bartlett, Royal and Stromsburg.

Tracy Cormier, special agent in charge of Homeland Security’s St. Paul, Minnesota, office, said the raid culminated 15 months of investigation and described the operation as one of the largest in Homeland Security Investigations’ 15-year history.

“I would say the amount of criminal warrants that are being executed will be one of the largest for HSI,” Cormier said. “I’m not aware of a bigger one.

“These targeted businesses were knowingly hiring illegal workers to unlawfully line their own pockets by cheating the workers, cheating the taxpayers and cheating their business competitors.”

The conspiracy, according to a federal court indictment, revolved around the owner of a popular O’Neill Mexican restaurant, La Herradura, and grocery store.

They raised the speed limits on rural roads … 70 (up from 65) on divided highways NE-71 and portions of US-26, and 65 (up from 60) on so-called “super two” highways. Speed limits also went up on rural dirt roads.

The speed limit was not raised to 80 on I-80, due to objections from the trucking industry. It remains 75.

Trump tweets always make me wonder about who really is writing them.

There has been a lot of talk it is Dan Scavino, one of Trump’s previous employees right off a golf course. Supposedly he is the director of social media. Everyone thinks he writes a lot of Trump’s tweets.

If you remember the Trump (twitter?) ad back in the 2016 campaign that had the star of David in it and dog whistle slant…that was Scavino.

He’s more Trump nastiness. All the best people.

The “luck of Kokura” is proverbial in Japan. This is because it was a target for BOTH atomic bombings, though not (as is often claimed) the primary target for both.
It was the secondary target for the August 6th mission. If Hiroshima had been clouded in, the plane would have diverted to Kokura (which was in fact clear at the time). It was the primary for the second mission, on August 9th, but it was clouded in and the mission diverted to the secondary, Nagasaki.

Redditors: “Hhhholy shit.”

That was priceless. Where did this take place? I’m going to have to set up a news alert.

I’m upset that the family stole from the brother’s boyfriend, but watching them get curb stomped for the thieves they are made up for it.

I’m in the process of winding down my dad’s estate. I’m glad we didn’t have to go through any of this kind of crap.

Honesty goes a long way.

So that’s how the county sheriff here keeps his promise of “keeping an eye on me” ever since we moved here.

Cattle (especially calves) chase our car, especially on dirt roads. The cattle report to the sheriff.
