Turns out that giving a lot more money back to people who have a lot of money makes things rise that people who have a lot of money care about. But it doesn’t do a hell of a lot for people without a lot of money.

I cannot believe Willie’s conservative fans(can’t believe he has much at all TBH) were shocked by his Beto endorsement. Hell Beto’s even particularly good on one of Willie’s favorite issues lol. Beto’s opponent meanwhile probably wishes he could ban women in jeans.

I regret even kind of grudgingly giving Dobbs credit for criticizing Bush. It’s obvious he hated Bush because Bush wasn’t a racist like he is.

I can’t fault him for that if that’s the case. I know I’m guilty of being the underage girl with my boyfriend and then we got married a month after I graduated. I don’t see this as a big deal. Now, had he been 10+ years older and she was underage, that’s a problem.

I would add that I would feel that way if she was 16 too. He’s awful but this doesn’t bother me at all except that he’s probably acted like every other right wing douchebag and been a condescending moralist about sex.

The point would seem to be to give Guyger a “valid” reason for being in Jean’s apartment. Namely that even if the jury believes that she barged in, arresting a “criminal” in the commission of a “crime” is her job and that’s what she was doing. That Jean was “uncooperative” puts the onus for his death on him, not hear for acting in “self defense.”

And how long ago was this and where? When I looked this up (about the time it applied to my cohort, so…1970?), there were only like 3 states where the age of consent was 18, but that seems to have spread universally now. In the South it was usually 12, and in Delaware it was 7, but 16 was the normal age then. I don’t know when the changes occurred.

Kavanaugh was born ‘65, so 1983 and I assume in Maryland/Virginia/DC since he’s from Maryland originally.

If the charge is really that a teenager took his slightly younger girl friend across state lines for sex, I cannot believe that this is something that should even be considered as an impediment to Kavanaugh’s nomination. There are plenty of other reasons to reject him — let’s not descend into castigating him over a trivial offense.

OTOH If he lied on his license to practice law by omitting a felony conviction, would that be grounds to disbar him? I am not an attorney so don’t know the ramifications. It is still a trivial offense.

If he had a felony conviction and lied about it, yes, that is serious. In a way, even though I think it might increase the chances of sinking him, I hope he was truthful if there was in fact a conviction. Because I don’t want it turning into “The hypocritical libtards and sex” even though the real issue would be the lying of course. I want Kavanaugh to sink to the bottom of Potomac not just as a SCOTUS nominee but on the court as a whole but I really hope this isn’t what does him in. The revealed bit about ruling to force an abortion on someone bothered me far more since it shows he does not care about individual rights at all.

Point of reference, I did not turn 18 until after I graduated high school. I wasn’t promoted any grades. I just fell on the young side since I had a July birthday. I’m seeing now that Kavanaugh’s birthday is in February. I really hope this just turns out to be DiFi doing her due diligence on something and not what we go to war with.

It’s been reiterated over the years that the initial reports of any crime or traumatic event are usually wrong. Reporters rely on leaks from sources that are often inaccurate. It may be premature to say what her actual testimony has been; we usually see only third hand or fourth hand reports.

I have mentioned this before: my late husband had an aunt who was murdered many years ago. He gave up on the reliability of newspapers at that time because every article on the crime was riddled with errors.

Do we have any reason to believe any of the stories on this crime are accurate and reflect her actual statements to the authorities?

Mrs. FBW and I were both 17 when we met at the start of freshman year. My birthday’s in November and she graduated from high school a year early.

I’m sure we may find out more soon.

Sorry just a reaction based off of how the Cruz campaign went after Beto for a DWI. If he was convicted and lied about it on his Bar form, then yes. If it wasn’t consensual, then absolutely yes. But if it was just an 18 year old and his 17 year old girlfriend going somewhere other than their homestate to screw around? I can’t.

Uh, at least two versions of her story are a matter of legal record because they appear in the search warrant and the arrest warrant. Both warrants were made public today, that’s why we know about the weed. That they are contradictory is a matter of public record, not the press reporting what they heard from a friend of a friend.

Which really flies in the face of their argument that “they really speak for the people” and the more established Dems (I refuse to let them claim progressivism for themselves) do not.

One interesting thing about this. The existing Falcon 9 Heavy could support a lunar flyby of the kind projected. SpaceX is adamant though that the flight will be made with the new BFR rocket, which will fly next year. The BFR will have a higher payload than the Saturn V Moon rockets (150,000 kg to leo) and could support a landing attempt. There are no apparent plans for a lunar lander but I am wondering if the higher payload might allow a direct ascent landing and return. This was proposed in the early days of Project Apollo and the monstrous Nova rocket was designed for it, but the more efficient lunar orbit rendezvous method was selected. Direct ascent requires more payload but is considerably simpler in terms of development.

Might they try for a landing?

I toured both distilleries (and about a dozen other) and the contrast was night and day. Macallan was corporate, impersonal, rushed, cookie cutter, and the wally world of scotch. Balvenie was an amazing 3 hour+ long, personalized adventure where they broke out, on request, rare 42, 38, and 33 single barrels that were never released to the public. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy Macallan. I own everything from 10 to 21 and have bought drams of 25 up to 45. But after experiencing both first hand, The Balvenie is my go to mass produced Speyside.

So it appears that the allegation may be one of rape when both Kavanaugh and the woman were minors. Doesn’t that become a he said/ she said given the length of time that has passed? Perhaps there is evidence from the time that can support the charge.

This is from the Guardian:

A source who said they were briefed on the contents of the letter said it described an incident involving Kavanaugh and a woman that took place when both were 17 years old and at a party. According to the source, Kavanaugh and a male friend had locked her in a room against her will, making her feel threatened, but she was able to get out of the room. The Guardian has not verified the apparent claims in the letter. It is not yet clear who wrote it.

In light of our disastrous word use the other day, I thought this article, though about Python, was interesting:

‘Master/Slave’ Terminology Was Removed from Python Programming Language

If you’re not immersed in the world of software or electronics engineering, you might find yourself surprised at how often the terms “master” and “slave” are thrown around in documentation. When discussing technology, these terms are used to refer to components that have total control over other components or are controlled by a component, respectively. Given that slavery was institutionalized in the United States for hundreds of years, however, the casual use of these terms by techies has understandably become a contentious issue in recent years.

The issue escalated last week when a programmer issued a change request that advocated for avoiding this terminology in Python, which is consistently ranked as one of the top three programming languages in the world.

“For diversity reasons, it would be nice to try to avoid ‘master’ and ‘slave’ terminology, which can be associated with slavery,” Victor Stinner, a developer with the open source software company Red Hat, wrote. Stinner cited multiple private complaints in the thread as the reason for requesting the change.

Unsurprisingly, the change request resulted in a heated debate among Python developers about the necessity for the change. Many developers agreeing that the word “slave” ought to be removed, but that “master” wasn’t an offensive term. Others argued that the terminology accurately describes the relationship between electronic components and should be taken in context. One developer even invoked BDSM culture, saying “‘master/slave’ can have *positive* connotations. You want to support diversity, then why are you discriminating against that subculture?”

In the end, most of Stinner’s suggested terminology changes were adopted. Thus, “slaves” was changed to “workers” or “helpers” and “master process” to “parent process.”

The rest of the article talks about the removal of the terminology from other languages.

The real Absinthe made with wormwood can’t be sold in the US, I’ll savor the experience to drink the real thing? Maybe?

My wife used to order the wormwood absinthe online from Europe. They’d ship with DHL and write ‘reading materials’ in the description, due to the fact that the bottles had labels. I think we still have a couple of half-full bottles around here somewhere.

Funnily enough since we are talking about liquor from countries you’d least expect it. I am wearing a T-Shirt and have a fifth of the only whiskey distillery in Slovakia.

And I currently have house guests from Slovakia. Have to ask them about this.

We’re going to hear about all his vices and character defects I fear in the coming day sto make the officer sympathetic even though it was she that broke into his house.

He worked at PricewatershouseCoopers. They don’t hire thugs.
