Seth Andrews (The Thinking Atheist, former Evangelical broadcaster) did a recent podcast on flagging campaigns against out atheists on Facebook to get them banned (at one point he was in Facebook jail). One wag commented:

Facebook jail, huh? I’ve done time there. Twitter jail is about the same except the food’s better and the rec yard is bigger.

A couple of years ago, Taco Bueno was voted best fast food Mexican restaurant. The next year, they were excluded so a new winner would be chosen. So I don’t buy much into these. It’s a bit like People Magazine’s sexiest man which somehow changes every year even though the previous year’s guy is still alive.

Their entire thing is creating a system where everyone’s scared of crime, but their consumer base feels that they get to shoot people with impunity on more and more tenuous understandings of what constitutes “threat.”

This requires there to always be a visible group of people who are less dead when they’re shot. Reasons for guilt are found retroactively.

The similarities to the preconditions of lynching aren’t a coincidence.

I really enjoy how Charles takes the heat down by throwing out a lovely musical piece that is completely non-partisan at the end of the day.

I really knew nothing about Bonamassa before I came to this Board. He is one hell of a slinger. And that performance is just Killer Bee.

And I’m out. Still drizzling outside. Right at 4” over the last three days. Florence (Motto: Kiss my grits!) looks it’s going to be peeling south into the Myrtle Beach area of SC, with Wilmington NC getting the max winds and storm surge. Camp Lejeune is going to get dough-popped, with a large affect on Marine readiness for the next couple of months (the Snake Eaters will have to move to California, Hawaii, and Okinawa). It’s a bothersome thing for Force 1 Recon troops. Not to mention their families.

I still remember when Republicans publicly balked at the suggestion that the Army had been inadequately prepared and armed for the fighting in Iraq, that anybody who suggested there had been a rush to war was “playing politics,” and the related suggestion that you couldn’t fight two wars simultaneously without both suffering was ludicrous. “We beat Germany and Japan at the same time, certainly we can fight Iraq and Afghanistan the same way!” was the cry as we sent soldiers driving around in thin-skinned Humvees and unarmored cargo trucks in the desert.

I read about that time we beat Germany and Japan at the same time.

As I recall, it required drafting every able-bodied man in America, ages 18-34. All of them. Plus volunteers from amongst the too old to draft, too young to draft, women, and not-entirely able-bodied. At the height of the war, a full 10% of our population was in uniform on battlefields.

The government subsidized 24-hour childcare centers, so the moms could work full-time at factories while their husbands were away. Those factories had to sell their goods at cost to the military; profiteering was a felony that sent factory owners and managers to prison. Income taxes ranged from a lowest bracket of 10% to a highest bracket of 92%. The elderly grew vegetables on what used to be lawns and baseball fields, adolescents spent their time scrounging for recyclables, the auto industry made 0 civilian passenger vehicles because they were dedicated to jeeps and tanks and required to sell their entire output to the military. Also, rationing and blackouts.

But sure, we can do that again.

While almost no one will disagree with the assertion that the US entering WWII turned the tide against Germany, the reality on the ground is that the USSR defeated Germany in conjunction with everyone else doing their part.

And yes, we could have defeated Japan all by ourselves. But all too often Americans don’t learn the real lesson of the Pacific war.

Bluntly this: Japan was our ally in WWI. It only attacked us in WWII because Japan’s government fell into the hands of military nationalists several years before Pearl Harbor.

Hmmm… military nationalists ruining countries… I wonder how many Americans learned that lesson from WWII?

The Frothy Right Is Furious that Peter Strzok Pursued the Guy Leaking about Carter Page (Goes to Empty Wheel, more at the link):

Close to midnight on June 3, 2017, Lisa Page texted Peter Strzok to let him know that Reality Winner was in custody. Page used the same shorthand she and Strzok (and presumably, those around them) consistently use to describe leak investigations, ML, media leaks.

They used the term elsewhere, as when Strzok said “media leaks and what I do for a living” when responding to the first reports that Mueller was investigating Trump (and hypothesizing about who the WaPo’s likely sources were).

Mark Meadows is trying to make this out to be some sort of witch hunt against Donald Trump. Ms. Wheeler takes apart Mr. Meadows’s narrative.

That said, the people who need to read things like Marci Wheeler or watch Rachel Maddow probably won’t. Conservative pundits like Mr. Meadows might, but only to cherry-pick information they want for their narrative.

I get that political positions are about narratives and emphasising what you think is important over another position. That said, if we can’t agree on facts, we don’t have a political system any more.

My wife’s first ex-hub (she collected the set) lives in eastern Tennessee. While the brunt of the winds will be gone when Florence gets there, the copious amounts of rain and tornadoes from a dying tropical storm won’t be.

With the storm brewing in the western Caribbean, my sister-in-law decided this would be a good time to go visit her family in Russia. (She was in Russia during Harvey and wound up stranded there for about six weeks, unable to get home to SE Texas.)

If you look at the latest IR image, you can see that the disturbance over the Yucatan is trying to turn into a tropical depression:

Image: 1800x1080.jpg

Florence may be steered more westerly (into SC instead of NC) if this disturbance strengthens a weak low pressure trough that extends off of it. This is why the models for Florence are given SC solutions to a landfall.

The double whammy with this Yucatan disturbance is that if it does develop then that means a tropical storm or even a hurricane could hit TX or LA concurrent with Florence in the Carolinas.

Their bill was to appease real estate developers along the North Carolina coast.

If the state government accepted the overwhelming evidence of climate science, the correct solution would be to prohibit or at least restrict development along the coastline (stranding assets of rich people - see also fossil fuels and the Koch Bros.)

Therefore, the inescapable logic of capitalism and conservatism is they must deny the science, and legislate against it, because denying profits and stranding assets is against conservative religion.

re: #45 Single-handed sailor

The Department of Defense is being restricted from assessing the impacts of climate change on things such as the Navy’s coastal infrastructure, and even in planning for likely mass-migrations away from the seacoasts in many nations (which arguably is a matter of national security), just so their donors won’t have stranded assets.

In the USA, such mass migrations from the coasts mean that we folks here in the grip of conservative religion will be flooded with more liberally-minded folks.

On the other hand, I can see a situation like the Dust Bowl, where states called out the National Guard to prevent people from escaping certain doom if they stayed.

Does anyone here know a writer named James Slater (science fiction)? I got a card from him in the mail the other day saying he knew me from when I was an exchange student to Brazil in 1976-77, and he wants me to contact him.

I don’t remember that name (but to be fair, we went down in a large crowd and I don’t really remember anyone I went with to Brazil). He got my mail information from the Internet to write me.

His Website says he works for Naval Sea Systems Command as a civilian employee as a corporate liaison (NavSea does not list civilian personnel on their Website).

I have certain things that I look out for in a good Mexican restaurant:

If all the tables and chairs match, that is a sign that they spend too much time on decor and not enough on the food

although for decor, velvet paintings (bullfighters, Aztec princesses, Elvis or slave girl in chains) are always a good sign

As is a TV that is tuned into Spanish-speaking soap operas

And as a rule, do not go on a Sunday. The best cooks are Mexican ladies who are at home on Sunday cooking for the family. Sundays you don’t know who you are getting, could be some Afghani fellow…

It’s an attitude that has often puzzled me. Why does God need our help, if He can do everything? Are His actions contingent upon our participation? If we choose not to help, does God revoke his actions? I know these are deep theological issues, but as an atheist I find it’s much easier to assume there is no God and our only recourse is to help ourselves.

My Chevrolet 3100 is a 1942 model, so I have researched that model year and the halt to production of civilian vehicles. The order came down and new cars disappeared so suddenly that it appeared to be almost instantaneous. In fact, the government bought up the unsold manufacturer inventories as well as vehicles that had already started down the production lines. Where possible, the production line vehicles were completed to GI standards. This is why World War II staff cars are almost all 1942 models, and include luxury makes like Packard and Cadillac.

If 3,000 dead is a “measure of success” in Trump’s thinking, I’d imagine that 25,000 dead would be a “trivial annoyance” for him.

The Frothy Right Is Furious that Peter Strzok Pursued the Guy Leaking about Carter Page (Goes to Empty Wheel, more at the link):

Mark Meadows is trying to make this out to be some sort of witch hunt against Donald Trump. Ms. Wheeler takes apart Mr. Meadows’s narrative.

That said, the people who need to read things like Marci Wheeler or watch Rachel Maddow probably won’t. Conservative pundits like Mr. Meadows might, but only to cherry-pick information they want for their narrative.

I get that political positions are about narratives and emphasising what you think is important over another position. That said, if we can’t agree on facts, we don’t have a political system any more.

Meadows, Nunes, Lindsay, have seen the same evidence we have about the TT meeting, the refusal of POTUS to condemn or challenge Putin, POTUS constantly blaming US IC, etc, and have decided their best course of action is to get their thief and liar of a client off on a technicality—inadmissible evidence.

And yes, DtrumpF is their client, they, GOP members of Congress, are acting as Drumpf’s lawyers.

The article 13 part, about active copyright coordination by platforms and owners, might work but it’s going to really spur the distribution of material outside the EU and leave many in the EU isolated.

It strikes me that since already the major internet consumption community outside of North America is east Asia (China, Japan, South Korea), that the majority of the internet community will just chug along and the EU is going to find itself increasingly isolated.

If you look at the latest IR image, you can see that the disturbance over the Yucatan is trying to turn into a tropical depression:

Image: 1800x1080.jpg

Florence may be steered more westerly (into SC instead of NC) if this disturbance strengthens a weak low pressure trough that extends off of it. This is why the models for Florence are given SC solutions to a landfall.

The double whammy with this Yucatan disturbance is that if it does develop then that means a tropical storm or even a hurricane could hit TX or LA concurrent with Florence in the Carolinas.

It’s not just people staying home: it was also voter disenfranchisement (especially in Wisconsin) AND the Bernie people who refused to vote for her and still don’t accept responsibility for putting Trump in office.

And I forgot: Florida’s refusal to restore voting rights to former convicts who have completed their sentences. According to John Oliver, there are over a million such residents, including 20% of African Americans.

God gave us free will. In 2016, we were also provided the information needed to make an informed decision: Trump revealed who he was during the entire campaign; he did not conceal his views on issues or his temperament — and 62 million of our fellow citizens were ok with that. So we can say with confidence that these people chose evil.

Clinton, at least, tried to maintain something of a public facade of “respectability” (didn’t work, but that wasn’t his fault) - and in any case, Bill was a professional lawyer/politician/public official - he knew what “governing” was about: even if his personal foibles (i.e. being an aggressive horndog) would - ultimately - trip him up.

Donald Trump. OTOH? Well, he’s Trump: an egomaniac glitzy facade over raging prejudice and all (as history will eventually show) in a desperate attempt to cover up a lifetime of failure. But nominated and elected, anyway.

My Chevrolet 3100 is a 1942 model, so I have researched that model year and the halt to production of civilian vehicles. The order came down and new cars disappeared so suddenly that it appeared to be almost instantaneous. In fact, the government bought up the unsold manufacturer inventories as well as vehicles that had already started down the production lines. Where possible, the production line vehicles were completed to GI standards. This is why World War II staff cars are almost all 1942 models, and include luxury makes like Packard and Cadillac.

‘People just give up’: Low-income hurricane victims slam federal relief programs

Nine months after Harvey, middle-class Houston has recovered, but low-income neighborhoods are in disarray.

“…A POLITICO investigation found that numerous low-income families were denied funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency because much of Kashmere Gardens was in a flood zone, and homeowners were thus required to carry flood insurance — a law that many of them were unaware of.”
…..
“…advocates for the poor say Texas has chosen to use a faulty formula to allocate the CDBG money among different priorities, such as housing, infrastructure and other state goals, and among different counties. According to the formula, which was developed by HUD to determine “serious unmet needs” after a disaster, homeowners with less than $8,000 in damage or whose home had less than 1 foot of flooding do not have a “serious unmet need.” Renters with less than $2,000 in property damage are also excluded.”

re: #70 wheat-dogg

It’s an attitude that has often puzzled me. Why does God need our help, if He can do everything? Are His actions contingent upon our participation? If we choose not to help, does God revoke his actions? I know these are deep theological issues, but as an atheist I find it’s much easier to assume there is no God and our only recourse is to help ourselves.

OTOH if there is a God and he did indeed choose Trump, WTF, God? Did you lose a bet with Lucifer or something?

I do not want to even think in those terms. And talking about “Blue Wave” is just setting the Dems up for disappointment.

The mid-terms are all just a collection of individual campaigns that are mostly uphill struggles in previously GOP-controlled states and districts, and each of them has to be fought on the ground by getting as many voters as possible to the polls to help turn this nation around.

at the moment, the individual polling suggests there are something like 60 seats that are likely to flip, and an outside chance at 100. I think it’s safe to say that the House will be controlled by Democrats next session. The senate? Who can say? But it would not strike me as at all impossible for Democrats to have a 52-48 edge for January.

And those “threats of sexual violence”? One anonymous call left on the office answering machine? Puh-leeze.

My 83 year old Dad is in the hospital with pneumonia. But I’m more worried about something else. He has episodes where he’ll phase out. He forgets how to walk, eat, and he’s been having accidents. They started last year and he quickly snaps out of them, but this last week has been really bad. We’ve told his doctor and he didn’t seem concerned. It’s been really hard to take care of him. We finally got a nurse to witness one of his episodes in the hospital and I’ve explained everything to our case worker, so I hope they have some options for us. I know I can’t do this alone. I finally got some sleep after getting none the last 48 hours.

Hope everyone is well. If anyone is in Florence path, be safe!

Today, on the latest episode of ‘Meaningless Window Dressing‘…

President Donald Trump signed an executive order Wednesday authorizing sanctions against foreigners who meddle in U.S. elections, a move that counters critics who claim he has not taking election security seriously enough.

The executive order covers not just interference with campaign infrastructure, but it also covers the distribution of disinformation and propaganda, national security adviser John Bolton told reporters. The order requires the Office of the National Intelligence Director to conduct regular assessments about potential foreign interference in the elections, asks for reports by the Homeland Security and Justice departments in the case of meddling in campaign-related infrastructure, he said. It also describes a process for the Treasury and State departments to recommend appropriate, automatic sanctions.

My wife’s friend was down in Ocean City Maryland 2 days ago and the sea levels were high, because of the push hundreds of miles away.
Had that last deluge, over a foot where I am, and it’s making me nervous.Been there too many times. Won’t know until landfall, but this area got slammed with torrential rains many times from Hurricanes past.

Brady’s plan would add about $630 billion to the federal deficit by 2029, on top of the $1.9 trillion the law is already expected to cost when factoring for higher interest payments, Congress’ Joint Committee on Taxation said on Tuesday.

Beyond those three years, the costs would continue to pile up. Starting in 2026, the cuts could cost the federal government about $165 billion annually in today’s dollars, according to projections by the Tax Foundation, a conservative-leaning think tank. That annual cut would add up to a roughly $2.4 trillion additional to the federal deficit over a 10-year period, the Tax Foundation found.

re: #330 Backwoods_Sleuth

American exceptionalism.

There are strong odds that those folks may never be heard from again. Why? Because they don’t want to leave their homes? That the barrier island they’re on may no longer exist after the storm passes?

That’s a reason to stay?

You can always put down new roots and find a new home and build new memories. It’s a lot harder for families and friends to grieve when they wont even have a body to recover, because it’s been blown out to sea in one of the worst storms to make landfall in that region.

FEMA funds transferred to do ICE separations. That’s the Trumpworld priorities. All their talk about how they’ll do a great job is just blustering BS. States bear the heavy lifting where possible, and FEMA backstops. When states are overburdened, that is when the feds help, but if the feds are too busy gutting FEMA accounts to cover separating toddlers from their parents, something is terribly wrong with the GOP priorities.

Trump nuts want to blame everyone but Trump for the 3,000 dead Americans in Puerto Rico. They want to blame it on the San Juan mayor, the PR government, the PR utilities, etc., except they all want to ignore the one incontrovertible fact - the entire fucking island was absolutely devastated by a Cat 5 storm that wiped out tens of thousands of buildings, rendered the entire island without power for weeks, and portions were without power for MONTHS. Some portions are still facing unreliable power due to the lingering effects of the storm damage.

Instead of mobilizing the military fully to assist in the recovery, there was limited efforts, and Trump thought the even delayed response was sufficient. It wasn’t, and therefore the death toll mounted.

If you’re living in GA, SC, NC, or VA, and aren’t getting to high ground, you’re playing Russian roulette, and even then it’s no guarantee you wont see flooding as the storm is likely to stall out and dump 30 inches or rain in areas of Southeast. Trump doesn’t know what his admin is doing, or cares, and certainly isn’t going to be bothered by the details of his response. How do we know? Because he didn’t care about PR.

It’s an attitude that has often puzzled me. Why does God need our help, if He can do everything? Are His actions contingent upon our participation? If we choose not to help, does God revoke his actions? I know these are deep theological issues, but as an atheist I find it’s much easier to assume there is no God and our only recourse is to help ourselves.

Up to 200 people decided to stay on Ocracoke Island, NC. There is no road to the island, ferry service has now stopped, emergency response has now stopped. They have decided to stay on an island that might go underwater. Don’t be that person.

the dumbest part of this is they can’t actually do anything
they can watch it blow away
they can watch it wash away

exactly the same damage to property will happen whether they are on the island or not

and since it’s an island with no access, there’s no issue of looting or any other after-the-storm nonsense

the only thing that would be different: bodily injury or worse

Okay, so you obviously know about the DNA tests. Anyhow this guy who had grown up thinking he was of German ancestry. Apparently the family was really involved in German culture and he wore lederhosen. He took the DNA test and it revealed he was Scottish. So the ad is “I traded in my lederhosen for a kilt.” This recent update makes me think that maybe he should have kept his lederhosen after all. And even though I’m Hessian, Bavaria is still my favorite region of Germany for food and drink.

I am starting to notice a pattern here.

fiddles?

When you lied on your CV to get the shepherd job.

Shepherding is a protected profession in Germany, you need to get a proper degree in shepherding before being allowed to tend sheep in public.

Trigger Steve King. Realize that the world is more than just being a pasty asshole from bumfuck nowhere Iowa that refuses to enter the 20th century.

Trump was asked by a South Dakota TV station if he has any words of comfort for farmers worried they’ll lose their family farms because of his tariff fights. He said “they would have lost them anyway”.

except for the 100% fact that they would not have

So last summer my fiddle-playing girlfriend of some four years got one of those DNA testing kit, found out she was 16% Ashkenazi Jewish and dumped me a few months afterward.

You didn’t expect they’d fiddle-around on you up-front?

King would have championed the actual Nazis as people taking back their country from the “foreigners” the same way he champions their heirs.

The next set of projections for Florence landfall will probably change, yet again. I would not be surprised if the approach to NC is farther north than what this morning’s projections were.

Regardless, living out on those islands, which are barely islands and more like just sand bars, when a hurricane comes by seems like the height of foolishness.

From any map of the Carolinas coastline (and Outer Banks islands) it’s easy to see evidence of past hurricanes that had stalled a few miles offshore, and took huge “bites” out of the coastline —all of them not far from where Florence is forecast to make landfall.

ive been through a number of hurricanes (for different reasons)
nothing more than a 3
i have done it from inside a house, a condo, once i rode my bike down the west coast of florida through a cat 2.
i stayed for wilma because i couldnt move my at-the-time horses (they did just fine)
irma last year was my first evacuation - first hurricane with a wife and nearby mom
i’ve seen all the combos - high wind, lots of rain, high wind, little rain, low wind, 14 inches of rain, low wind low rain, etc.

and im nohting special. i know a lot of other people have too

a high end 3, or 4 or 5, ‘foolish’ does not begin to describe it

I’d love to know what Bono acutally said that triggered these two assholes. And man Steve King again shows himself to be the most repugnant member of Congress. Western Iowa, please take your Nazi home. We’re sick of him in the DMV.

I don’t want him. Most of us in NW Iowa don’t want him. Unfortunately NW Iowa has far too many lazy-ass people who don’t actually vote.

I thought, Mr. Dorsey, that we had an understanding. I would not ever concede that telling you or anyone else they ought to die of boils was unjustifiable after their own rhetoric lapsed into abject slander, dishonesty or dishonor, and you — pretending that I had somehow threatened the actual well-being of another human, or that my word were measurably more cruel than telling someone to, say, take a long walk off a short pier or grow like an onion with his head in the ground — would continue to bar me from the demagogue-encrusted, Nazi-profiteering national agora that you call a social-media platform.

I was more than content with this bargain.

For one thing, leaving intact on Twitter my threaded suggestion that boils are your deserved fate for your civic performance in this moment would make clean and clear why I left months ago. No one had actually been threatened or harassed, and the rhetoric itself was purposed as a precise critique of your incompetent attempts at algorithmic censorship, which routinely ban people for the most casual sarcasm while leaving intact organized slander and disinformation. This seemed to me fair payment for my exile. For another, I was able to use the time I had previously spent on Twitter jabbering with Russian bots and assorted meme-spewing deplorati to much greater accomplishment, such as deworming my neighbor’s dog and rearranging the books on my shelves by color.
