re: #3 goddamnedfrank

Dumb fuck broke every one of the NRA’s rules for safe gun handling.

1. Always assume the gun is loaded, unless you personally have verified that it is unloaded.

2. Always point the gun in a safe direction.

3. Know how to use the gun safely.

4. Be sure the gun is safe to operate.

5. Use only the correct ammunition for your gun. OK, he didn’t break this rule, I guess.

6. Know your target and what is beyond.

7. Never use alcohol or over-the-counter, prescription or other drugs before or while shooting. This one I can’t be sure from the video alone.

8. Store guns so they are not accessible to unauthorized persons. He is *fucking* unauthorized from the video evidence.

9. Never provide a gun to someone not authorized to have it. See Rule #8.

I swear, guns in America is one of humanity’s sickest fucking jokes.

The Theory of Prosecution You Love for Julian Assange May Look Different When Applied to Jason Leopold (Goes to Emptywheel)

Marcy Wheeler weighs in with her opinion on what sort of indictment may actually be waiting for Julian Assange, and more on Wikileaks going silent on November 8 on Twitter. (By the way, FOX News Channel is still silent as well.)

It is an interesting read. In that article, she asserts there could be four possible charges waiting to be unsealed:

Receiving and publishing stolen information is illegal
Conspiring to release stolen information for maximal damage is illegal
Soliciting the theft of protected information is illegal
Using stolen weapons to extort the US government is illegal

She notes the first two could trigger massive I Amendment questions, including thousands of various media outlets and journalists filing amicus briefs on behalf of Julian Assange (even if they hate the guy, because any such charges could be used against them).

The third she sees as possible, and the fourth she sees as likely (the CIA hacking tools stolen by Wikileaks which implicates Donald Trump, Jr). Bringing receipts, she shows that Wikileaks/Assange in conversation already deployed a barrage of those tools against the DNC during the election, and threatened to unleash more of them against either the Democratic Party or the US Government.

re: #12 Ace Rothstein

With pump action shotguns, you can fire shells as fast as you can pump the gun with the trigger depressed. You are correct, he was holding the trigger down, he pumped it, and it fired.

The film Three Kings kind of demonstrated the “hold the trigger pump action rapid fire” method.

Yep, it’s called a slam fire. Modern guns aren’t supposed to drop the hammer on completion of cycling but some older pump shotguns absolutely will do it. This video explains it:

Looks that way, he jams that forearm pump down and then rams it up acting like a hard ass and the whole gun moves up which pulls the trigger up into his finger.

Damn lucky he didn’t have that pointed any other way. And depending on the construction of the house…I don’t think I’d want to be in the room above depending on what the load was.

Wow, I just read that. You are fortunate to have lived through it.

I wouldn’t have been so nice to the friend. I would have let him rot in the county lockup as long as they wanted to hold him.

I’m not afraid of a new gun owner or shooter who wants to learn the correct way to handle and use a firearm. They may make mistakes but will immediately accept correction from a range master or other shooter.

It’s the ones who claim they know what they’re doing and ignore basic precautions who scare me.

As Stonekettle says, there are no accidents with guns, only negligence. (I suppose you could put a caveat there such as the gun blowing up in your hands or something, but that is incredibly rare.)

I was thinking that just the other day about Georgia especially. I do have a feeling Kemp is not going to have an easy time. He has definitely shown his ass.

It reminds me of North Carolina and Pat McCrory and some of the issues he caused his state…and then he was gone after one term as governor.

Argentine Submarine That Vanished With 44 Aboard Is Found, Navy Says

Argentine Navy announced early Saturday that searchers had found a missing submarine deep in the Atlantic, almost a year to the date after it disappeared with 44 crew members aboard.

The submarine, the San Juan, was detected 2,625 feet deep in waters off the Valdes Peninsula in Argentine Patagonia, the navy’s statement said.

The navy said a “positive identification” had been made by a remote-operated submersible from the Ocean Infinity, an American ship that was hired for the latest search for the missing vessel.

California fire: Death toll rises in Camp fire as survivors look for their way forward (Los Angeles Times, more at the link):

While some are thinking of rebuilding, Reed is not. She lived in Paradise in the early 1980s then moved away, but she returned to the tightknit community in 2009.

“I love Paradise,” she said, but that may not be enough to incentive to stay.

“I don’t ever want to put my kids in the position again where they have to run away from a wildfire,” [Kathleen] Reed said. “It’s just not safe to build in the forest anymore. It’s the new normal.”

Tim Bolin, the executive pastor of Paradise Alliance Church, was in line at the post office to take care of his church’s payroll. Sixteen of his 21 employees lost their homes and are “scattered all over, from 100 miles north to 100 miles south,” he said. Another employee’s home was looted.

“There’s checks that have come in. There’s some bills that have to get paid. I hope people are patient,” he said.

The church and Bolin’s home survived, but all of his children’s homes were destroyed. They’re going to set up on his property in trailers and hook up to his septic system while they figure out what’s next, he said.

White magazine shuts down after refusing to feature same-sex weddings (Australian Broadcast Co.)

The invisible hand giveth, and it taketh away, as over one hundred wedding professionals, many LGBT, boycott buying advertising in a wedding magazine.

The magazine insists it is “secular,” and the owners needed time to work through their “feelings” about a “white-hot political issue.” (Translation, we’re Christians, how dare our advertisers not let us be bigots even though many of them are gay or lesbian, and how dare our subscribers demand where we stand on marriage equality)

One of Australia’s leading wedding magazines, White, is shutting down following its refusal to feature same-sex weddings.

Founders Luke and Carla Burrell, who are Christian, say the magazine became the target of a damaging campaign after Australia voted to legalise same-sex marriage last year, and a number of advertisers withdrew their support.

“White Magazine is no longer economically viable,” they said in a blog post.

“As much as we love what we do and are inspired by the positive impact it’s had, we need to draw the curtain on this part of our lives.”

‘Angry Goy 2’ Neo-Nazi Video Game Lets Users Kill LGBT People and Minorities to Save Donald Trump (Newsweek)

As of this moment, a trailer for the game has been up for a week on YouTube. You wanna know why Google supports people like Cindy Hyde-Smith in Mississippi? Racism sells.

The video for the trailer is starting to be mirrored across several channels on YouTube in anticipation of “angry deep state liberals” complaining to YouTube that the video trailer violates their rules.

Newsweek contacted YouTube over this trailer, but received no comment from the company.

The original version of the game (a race war) was eventually removed by YouTube for violating their standards on hate speech.

Two special elections (appointments) coming up for the Nebraska Legislature, as two senators were elected to statewide offices. Districts 1 and 49 will open when they resign their seats to take up their new offices, and Governor Pete Ricketts is looking for people to appoint to those seats.

State senate seats which are vacated are appointed to be filled by the governor. In theory, the whole Unicameral could be arrested, and the governor could appoint his own legislature.

District 1 is a rural district (the largest city is Nebraska City). District 49 (the highest numbered district) is the southwest suburbs of Omaha, in Sarpy County.

If you want to apply for a seat, you can contact the governor. He’s taking applications for the legislative seats here.

You must be 21 or older, lived in the state for a year, be registered to vote, and I guarantee you’d have to be a Republican (though that part is not in the law).

Yo’ NRA *So Broke* That If It Were A Poor Person It Would Be Sad And Not Funny (Wonkette)

Aside from cutting funding candidates by 50% in the face of a blue wave they knew was coming, they have also cut coffee and water to staff, will reduce the number of their six magazines (print, not clips) to one, and are eliminating the core reason they were formed: firearms safety and training.

According to the article, they have raised dues twice in two years, and have taken a loss on revenue from dues and sales. There is a point of diminishing returns if dues go up too fast.

We may be seeing the demise of the NRA in real time now. I wonder how many congressvarmints would be so opposed to gun safety laws if the firehose of money comes to an end for their campaigns?

Their “in your face” attitude about all guns, everywhere, has given sane gun owners a real headache. Douchecanoes wandering around parking lots with enough armament for an Army squad saying “you’ll pry my alt-penis from my cold dead hands” and weekly mass murders seems to have finally broken their grip on power.

Seeing the number of “A” rated congressvarmints voted out and “F” rated candidates voted in also shows that people like March for our Lives, Everytown, &c are having an effect (much like Mothers Against Drunk Driving did in the Seventies).

Hello, Lizards.

So, in poking around YouTube, I found Amin: The Rise and Fall, from 1981.

It’s considered something of an exploitation film, but it’s actually really good. In particular, Joseph Olita - a Kenyan actor - portrays Idi Amin brilliantly.

I’m gonna put it behind a private tag, as it is somewhat NSFW, but I nonetheless recommend it. It’s an underrated film about one of modern history’s more erratic and bizarre tyrants.

Greetings Lizards,

Not sure if anyone is watching in the US - you have plenty of things to worry about at the moment - but this is really historical stuff taking place in the UK on the brexit. I’ve never seen such political drama in my lifetime.

bbc.co.uk

I think “The deal” - if anyone cares what I think - looks like a realistic middle ground, but seems like a gigantic waste of time effort and monetary uncertainty for what it really achieves.

So, everyone hates it.

There is sort of a suicide pact between the ardent “hard-brexiteers” who want to push for a straight no-deal exit, and those who want remain in the EU. Despite being diametrically opposed, between them they could topple this government and force a new election or possibly even a new referendum (I know when you asked me a while ago I doubted this could be possible- seems like I was wrong!).

No-one knows how that would go - the country still seems divided roughly down the middle on this issue, and that division transcends party, social and traditional liberal/conservative lines. It’s all about emotions and the heat is rising here…

This would be so much simpler if the Conservatives simply said something like “the referendum is a bad deal for the United Kingdom, and we’re not going to do it.”

Like Republicans, the Tories are more concerned about gaining and maintaining their own power. Brexit negotiations to me look more like who can stick a shiv in who to jockey for power.

If the other two parties had their crap together, they could kick the DUP to the curb and crush the Tories.

Well, simpler yes, but that would destroy the Conservative party forever as undemocratic. They won the election based on giving the referendum, and promised to bide by the result. Don’t get me wrong - I was against it, but sometimes decisions don’t go your way in a democracy.

If Labour took the opportunity and stood up and said we will stay in the EU it would be very interesting to see if lifelong Tory voters would actually risk putting them in power. Corbyn happens to have other Sanders-like policies that are rather too extreme for even more liberal-minded British voters’ tastes.

I admit I don’t understand the rules surrounding the referendum (I was under the impression it was sort of a non-binding plebiscite). Also, I recall on the radio Theresa May offering up options of her deal, a hard Brexit imposed by the EU, or remain in the House of Commons (followed by a lot of cheering for the “remain” choice).

Jeremy Corbyn seems to want to switch to “all left, all the time” with no idea how to get there. (That and some troublesome issues with perceived or actual antisemitism - The Guardian summed that problem for the Labour Party and Corbyn up two months ago

re: #63 Anymouse 🌹

May was explaining (threatening?) the consequences of rejecting the deal. Either vote it through, or risk a crash-out hard brexit with no deal at all, OR remain in the EU without change at all.

Pretty much everyone sees that no-deal would be a disaster for everyone (except the “hard-brexiteers”).

Staying in is obviously a disaster for everything the hard brexiteers want.

So she was saying “vote for this deal or risk everything”.

Hence my analogy to a potential suicide pact between hard-brexiteers and remainers.

RE the referendum; legally it’s not binding, but it would be a terrible betrayal of promises to simply ignore it because it didn’t go as expected.

I’m neutral, emotionally, on May as a person, but I can see the deal is an effort to try and make a sort of brexit without destroying the economy for a generation. It’s not a bad effort considering the factors stacked up against any deal being achieved at all.

Still don’t like it…

RE the referendum; legally it’s not binding, but it would be a terrible betrayal of promises to simply ignore it because it didn’t go as expected.

I had gathered that immediately after the results had come in, most of the voters had a “WTF did we just do?” reaction, as if (1) they never expected the leave side to win and (2) they never expected the government would take the vote seriously. At that point, Cameron’s government would have risked being thrown out, but it could have just told everyone, “Thanks, but we were only kidding. This vote does not force us to follow through.” Cameron knew he’d created a shambolic mess, so he cut and run, leaving the Tories no choice but to follow through. Now, there they are, with May’s shambolic answer to the shambolic mess Cameron left her with.

Judging from afar, my advice would have been to ignore the vote, or at least postpone acting on it until everyone had a clearer idea what Brexit would actually mean. Dragging their feet, which politicians normally do when faced with intractable problems, seems like it would have been the best, and perhaps only sane response.

re: #69 wheat-dogg

A smart move would’ve been to say something to the effect of, “Well, the referendum results indicate the British people want us to look into the matter, so first, we’ll need to prepare a study to assess the economic and foreign relations impact of such a move - of course, we’ll also need to speak with business leaders and have them submit their own assessments so that we can move on to an internal, intragovernmental consultation and assessment phase. That should be done, oh, say around 2050 or so. We’ll proceed from there.”

Exactly, the “foot dragging solution.” Instead, the government went all in to rush toward Brexit as soon as possible. I just can’t fathom why. AFAIK there were no economic or geopolitical pressures in play, only the xenophobic sentiments from the Brexiteers that leaving would somehow keep out the undesirables and decouple the UK from the EU.

For me, the result perfectly reflected my thoughts, that leaving is probably the right choice, but only by a small margin.

However, the attitude of the EU negotiators immediately after the Brexit decision hardened my resolve that leaving is the right choice. The EU made it clear that they were going to make leaving as hard as they could for the UK to both punish it for daring to leave, and also to make it less likely that other countries would want to leave in the future.

This is absolutely the behaviour of a dominant person in an abusive relationship. “You want to leave me? I’ll make it so you regret your choice.” The future of the UK is uncertain outside the EU, but it’s still the right thing to do, imo.

Oh btw, the EU is heading for another massive financial crisis within ten years due to countries with ageing populations not being able to revalue their currency.

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. Lots of folks around here questioning local leaders as to why everyone seemed to screw up the response to the nor’easter. A few folks are demanding that DeBlasio resign over the failed response (and this is the kind of thing that doomed Lindsay’s term too). More people are questioning the Amazon deal to get the company to Long Island City, and that it may be requiring affordable housing proposed for the area to be relocated.

And all that pales in comparison to the horrific disaster unfolding in CA, with the wildfires and the death toll over 70 and more than 1,000 people missing. Trump’s on his way out there… and it’s going to be a shitshow (same as always). How can we predict it’ll be a shitshow? Because every time Trump goes and tries to appear leader-like, he come up short.

It’s always about him. Trump doesn’t care about the people, the victims, or the first responders. He’s using all of them as a prop, and he’s too busy blaming the victims for the disaster.

Trump’s too busy demanding the military waste military resources by stationing troops at the border to keep people from crossing into the US to claim asylum to bother noting that those troops would be more appropriately used to help with disaster relief in CA. It’s the same as after Hurricane Maria, Hurricane Florence, and Hurricane Michael. He doesn’t care about the victims.

As I mentioned above, the demographics of the populations of some of the countries in Europe are mildly terrifying, with large numbers of people approaching retirement age, but without people to replace them in the workforce:

bulgaria population graph
Germany demographics
Greece demographics
Portugal demographics

There’s going to be massive political pressure for there to be massive wealth transfer from the countries that have relatively large working age populations, to those that have a large number of retirees.

re: #72 Danack

Since I’m an American, I’ve got no skin in this game, but my non-expert opinion is that, long-term, Brexit will bad for both the UK and the EU. Short-term, it’s likely to be a disaster.

Nothing was really broken pre-Brexit, so why try to fix something that was working more or less OK?

Yes, Italy and Greece still threaten to drag the entire EU economy down, and losing the bulwark of the UK’s economy is certainly going to make that problem even worse, especially if other nations decide to exit. I can certainly understand why the EU would not want the UK or any other member to cut and run, because making it easy would mean the end of the EU as an institution. The member nations of the EU essentially signed a contract when they signed up. Reneging on that contract is not quite the same as leaving an abusive relationship. In any case, the EU got hard-nosed only after the UK decided to go ahead with this folly. You’re essentially blaming the co-signer of a contract for trying to enforce the terms of the contract the other party (the UK) has decided to abandon.

As for the demographics problem, scores of nations around the world face the same issue. Italy and Greece are not unique in that regard.

I’m glad you’re happy with the results. We’ll see which of us was correct in another decade.

What could happen is younger people (refugees and migrants, for example) coming in to make up the shortfall, assuming those countries are willing to accept the immigrants. Staying in the EU also makes it easier for citizens of one country to work in another, such as Spaniards working in France. Separating from the EU and/or the Schengen Zone makes such mobility a lot more difficult.

There are old people in the UK and Germany, too, by the way.

The UK joined the European common market, which was a completely different type of contract to the position where we are in now, where EU politicians have been pushing for ‘ever closer union’ and berating UK politicians for years for not being as enthusiastic for that.

And when the people in the UK were asked, do you actually want to stay in the EU as it has become compared to what it was, the answer is, no, not really.

The exact opposite is happening; young people are leaving because the economy is knackered.
ekathimerini.com

There’s very little incentive for young people to move to a country that is having financial problems.

There are old people in the UK and Germany, too, by the way.

Yes. I included the chart for Germany above. That should be quite alarming as Germany is driving a lot of the EU economy.

The United Kingdom is going to have a slightly smaller working age population, but it is no where near as bad as the other countries.
indexmundi.com

Additionally, the UK has a different setup for pension schemes compared to Europe. In the UK money for pensions is saved as people work, and then the pensions are paid out of that pot of money. In most of Europe, pensions are paid directly from tax revenue, and there isn’t any savings to be drawn down.

To be clear, the UK is definitely going to have a tough time outside of Europe, and with a mildly aging population, but it is going to be nowhere near the scale of the problem across the EU.

re: #80 Danack

China and Japan have much the same problem. Japan, because it has a relatively small population and an alarmingly low birthrate, and China, because it restricted the number of children a family could have until fairly recently. Neither country is especially welcoming to foreign workers, but I expect economic necessities will require some looser visa restrictions and more financial incentives to attract foreign labor. China has no national pension system, like the UK or the US, so caring for senior citizens falls on their children and grandchildren, who find it increasingly harder to provide adequate care.

The EU made it clear that they were going to make leaving as hard as they could for the UK to both punish it for daring to leave, and also to make it less likely that other countries would want to leave in the future.

If you still think that leaving the EU was a good choice after the chaos of the last two years, I don’t know what to tell you. Essentially, the UK wants to make a big hole in the EU border where it can toss whatever it wants that profits the UK. They would also like to be a tax haven for EU finances, control major EU projects like Galileo, and have Calais operate as a refugee camp so they don’t have to deal with them. And last but absolutely not least, Johnny Foreigner out.

UK politicians have used the EU as a punching bag for forty years, blaming domestic issues like shit rail lines and austerity on the EC, while ignoring that other states like Sweden and Denmark managed to avoid this horrible calumny somehow. They’re not the only government that does this, of course, but the EU has never been set up to fight back against it.

Brexit was never a considered move to improve the UK. This was a political stunt by Cameron to politically neuter the Eurosceptics. It was supposed to be off the table during the general election, where they expected to have to join a coalition with the LibDems. Except they won outright. Oops. No problem, the referendum will never pass. Except non-residents were excluded, our buddies from Cambridge Analytica and the Kremlin got involved, and the UKIP racists lied their asses off and stirred the pot, and voila.

So Brexit won, with utterly no plan that didn’t involve everyone else magically submitting to Britain for no reason, and the Brexiteers have spent two years quitting and avoiding responsibility for anything to do with actually negotiating a deal. The EU has been clear from day one that the four freedoms are inseparable, and the UK has wasted all this time trying to get them to agree to that exact thing in one way or another. Why should the EU give the store to the UK instead of doing what is in the interest of its own member states? The UK said that it would be easy to negotiate. Well, prove it.

That’s odd. Reed isn’t known to be a moderate from what I know. Not Freedumb Caucus. Anyhow. I think Pelosi will get enough to rally around her and this stuff by the Ryans, Moultons, etc will cool down.

re: #140 HappyWarrior

Reed was my congresscritter for a while, when western NY was badly gerrymandered in the 2000s. The district then stretched from Elmira up to Rochester, and belonged for many years to Amo Houghton, a true liberal Republican back when New York had such things. Then it went Democratic for Eric Massa, until he flamed out, and that’s when Reed came in.

He triangulates very well. Of all the upstate Republicans who were challenged this cycle, he did the best at holding his seat (in a district that was redrawn after 2010 to be much, much redder and rural). He’s affable in person, talks a good game when he’s in Ithaca, the blue part of his district, but then goes and votes straight Trump and gets away with it.

If he didn’t lose this year, he could be in his seat another 30 years (he’s only in his mid 40s)

That’s a great question. Pence would be their best chance at having one of their own in the Oval Office. TBH I just don’t know Pence credibly distances himself from Trump for both a nomination and then a GE. It’s why if someone runs against Trump in the GOP primary, it will have to be someone who has been a long time critic of his like Kasich. Kasich has credibility whereas Pence does not nor would someone like Haley who also gets talked of as a potential inter-party challenger to Trump in 2020.

Unless the incumbent withdraws (a la LBJ), I don’t think a challenger wins the nomination. The party structures favor incumbents too much in presidential nominations. But as I’ve mentioned, any real challenge to an incumbent in the primary likely means they are done, from a historical perspective.

If they somehow managed to beat Trump in the primary… I think they’d get crushed in the general. Either because Trump runs as a sore loser independent, or because a big part of the Trumpitariat stays home

What I would do if I were her, I’d get some of the people elected within the last 10 years and younger than let’s say 54 put in important committees and leadership spots. Pelosi likely won’t be in the House by the end of next decade whether she passes away or decides to retire by then but many of these people will. I think she’s a much better leader than her detractors give her credit for. She’s a lightning rod for the R base but what her lefty critics ignore is that the right would make any prominent Democrat public enemy number one to their base. Obama definitely ended up being hated as much as the Clintons were by the Republican base and while I have no regrets at all about making Obama the nominee in 2008, I do think I was naive to think they wouldn’t hate him as much as they did Bill and Hill and Carter.

I thikn ideologues on both sides really ignore that politics is a people game. I see lefties talk about their dream cabinets and such all the time and almost always it’s just liberal favorites, some of whom frankly may have some great ideas and vision but aren’t effective. That’s why I would be hesistant to put Bernie at say DOL since I don’t ese much from Bernie that suggests he’s a do getter. You follow sports like I do I know. It’s kind of like how in order for a successful team to function, you don’t need all pros at every position, you just need people to fit your system well. I think political leadership follows the same principle. You don’t need someone staunchly lefty at every position but you need people who fit what they do and do it well.

Two special elections (appointments) coming up for the Nebraska Legislature, as two senators were elected to statewide offices. Districts 1 and 49 will open when they resign their seats to take up their new offices, and Governor Pete Ricketts is looking for people to appoint to those seats.

State senate seats which are vacated are appointed to be filled by the governor. In theory, the whole Unicameral could be arrested, and the governor could appoint his own legislature.

District 1 is a rural district (the largest city is Nebraska City). District 49 (the highest numbered district) is the southwest suburbs of Omaha, in Sarpy County.

If you want to apply for a seat, you can contact the governor. He’s taking applications for the legislative seats here.

You must be 21 or older, lived in the state for a year, be registered to vote, and I guarantee you’d have to be a Republican (though that part is not in the law).

Apply! Do it!

And when the people in the UK were asked, do you actually want to stay in the EU as it has become compared to what it was, the answer is, no, not really.

And the day AFTER the vote, the number one most googled phrase in the UK was “what’s the EU”.

If the Leavers somehow expect a return to the Empire of yore, it’s just not going to happen. That ship sailed after 1945.

It sailed in 1918. The Empire just took a while to realize it was dead.

Dana Milbank has fun? with DT. While Trump feasts on Thanksgiving, troops on the border eat rations and await Pancho Villa WaPo

… But maybe Mattis has revealed something about Trump’s national-security decisions. The policies may be inappropriate for the current day, but they would have been eminently sensible a century ago, or earlier.

Some might say it is pointlessly antagonistic to attack the president of France over his approval rating and the French unemployment rate and to misrepresent his statements. But there is historical context for Trump’s belligerence! The French fought us during the French and Indian War in the 1750s . And French privateers seized our merchant ships in the 1790s.

Some might think Trump’s “travel ban” is an attempt to punish Muslim countries on the basis of religion. But there is historical context! Between 1801 and 1815, we fought in the Barbary Wars against what is now Libya — one of the countries targeted by the travel ban.

Some might take issue with Trump’s attempt to portray Mexicans as murderers. But there is historical context! Remember the Alamo? The Mexican-American War? The Cortinista Bandits of 1859? The Las Cuevas War of 1875? Anyone?

Some might think Trump is naive to alienate Britain and Germany while warmly embracing Russia. But there is historical context! Russia was on our side during the Boxer Rebellion in 1899 (and they weren’t so bad in 1856 during the Second Opium War). And Britain was our enemy in the War of 1812 — and Hessian soldiers fought against us during the American Revolution!

There is even historical context for Trump spending Thanksgiving in Mar-a-Lago’s luxury rather than roughing it with troops along the border. That area was highly unstable in 1521, when Europeans defeated the Aztecs and their emperor, Montezuma II. We can’t risk sending the president there. You never know when Montezuma might exact his revenge.

That right there should have invalidated the vote. They used the NHS official logo, and was sued for doing so, but it was too late.

People in the UK are suffering due to zero hour contacts, Tory austerity and policies, and the vote was expected to fail so alot of people did protest votes because of that and the lies about NHS and more.

Today years old for me. :D

It helps to see the negative shape with those particular diamonds. They have the curved sides that help make the “round” loops. I think if you look at the 8 of any card you can catch it.

One of the great lessons of art college was 2D design, where some of our problems were to make simple designs using black and white rectangles or circles where the white of the paper is as dynamic as the black shapes.

It really teaches you to look for the negatives in a design as sometimes they become the major pattern that leads the eye though the piece of art.

It even applies to 3D art like sculpture…the “holes” are as much a part of a design as the solid parts.

And sometimes squinting your eyes helps you see it, because it helps take your eyes off the obvious.

You can carry that into everything really. Think of what you are not being told as much as what you are.

I’ve tended to think that they stopped being really interesting after Revolver. The experiments later had a lot of impact on other people’s productions but if it hadn’t had their names on it, the later albums wouldn’t have done much other than collect dust in the cut out bins. The best moments of the solo work was when they did the things like what they did best in the earlier years (look at Lennon’s Imagine & McCartney’s pure pop songs with Wings).

Now now, don’t go talking reality. Besides 1) never interrupt your opponent when he’s making a mistake - attributed to Napoleon) and 2) That which has not killed me has made a tactical error - maxim 35.

I’ve tended to think that they stopped being really interesting after Revolver. The experiments later had a lot of impact on other people’s productions but if it hadn’t had their names on it, the later albums wouldn’t have done much other than collect dust in the cut out bins. The best moments of the solo work was when they did the things like what they did best in the earlier years (look at Lennon’s Imagine & McCartney’s pure pop songs with Wings).

(now headed to work in my finest Asbestos uniform!)

But mixed among those ‘experiments’ were some of their finest songs - the White Album contains quite a few. And the post-experimental stuff - ‘Abbey Road’ in particular - also had its share of timeless tunes.

Ohio State vs. Maryland.

Ohio State just scored a touchdown in overtime to make it 52 to 45 first possession in overtime period

Maryland now gets the ball to match it or lose. But Ohio State’s defense has given up huge plays all day long.

And boom. Maryland scores. 52 - 52.

It’s unfortunately true most places. Sometimes we are just products of circumstance whether that’s the times, economics, race, gender, etc. As you guys know, I do genealogical research, I was digging around the old Pittsburgh Post-Gazette archives to see if my grandparents ever made the news as kids. Found my dad’s mother, a honor student and part of her school’s newspaper staff prominent in a few stories and it just got me thinking that maybe if Nana had been born in a different time and with a little more status, maybe she could have become a journalist. It did help that my grandfather did treat her as an equal but it reminded me that my Nana was more than just my Nana, she was a woman with many fine intellectual gifts too. She was often reading as I remember.

I mean it amused me that even with the smallest things like wearing a tan suit or getting a burger with dijon mustard pissed them off but I never supported Obama because he triggered the cons. I supported Obama because I feel then as I do now a decade later that the he was the right man for the job and I’m confident in saying he was.

Sorry if already posted: Holy, cow. That “young intern” so brazenly attacked by Jim Acosta in that press conference, who also was seen cleaning up the crowd behind DT at a rally? She isn’t an intern. Surprise! She is Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters, with a salary of $130,000 a year. Amazing.

Not according to Snopes:

Claim: The intern who took away Jim Acosta’s microphone at a White House Press Conference was actually Deputy Press Secretary Lindsay Walters.

Rating: False

This claim did not originate with a news report, a press release, or someone with firsthand knowledge of the incident; rather it was based solely on the observation that the woman who took the mic from Acosta bore a passing resemblance to Walters.

On another note, remember when you talked about how Nixon sabotaged a Vietnam War peace deal in order to win the 1968 election? Rachel Maddow’s done a show about it, and it’ll air tomorrow at 9 PM:

One of the long running mysteries of the Vietnam war was why Nixon did not try to replace, or at least rein in, the fantastically corrupt Thieu regime.There were plenty of alternatives. The administration said this was out of respect for South Vietnamese sovereignty, an absurd claim given that Thieu had gained power in an utterly obvious sham election in 1967. The real reason was apparently that Thieu had the goods on him, for sabotaging the peace process in 1968.

Didn’t know that. Really again shows you how our two countries are so similar but different too. Point of reference, when I visited my cousin who lives in England four years back, her little girl was begging to go to the pub. I knew before I went that the pub in the UK is a much more community centered place than our American bars but seeing it and hearing about the pubs with the playgrounds put a new spin.

From what I learned about Nixon and Kissinger is despite the peace with honor crap, they just wanted the appearance of trying to win but what happened to the Vietnamese people didn’t matter a damn which I think you can see in how they dealt with other regimes. It likewise is why while President Ford and I would have disagreed on the war iteslf, I respect that he cared enough about the people fleeing Vietnam in its aftermath to support the refugees.

I’d guess you’d have to look at what year of Archie we’re referring to. Early Archie would have totally been MAGA, he was just shy of David Duke.

Later years, after Edith died, he wasn’t so much in the vein of the KKK… He’d changed and mellowed by then.

To be sure, bigotry and hate are learned human behaviors, not the default (for the most part; there’s always going to be some that might be considered to be “born bad”), and some people can learn and turn it around, but there’s a whole lot that don’t and won’t.

But, it takes time and energy to back out of behaviors that, when at fever pitch, give highs like crack cocaine and it’s much easier for them to just roll with it, no matter what anyone else says. Those people, they’re unreachable and impervious to any logic that contradicts their own POV; with them, the best we can do is to sideline and marginalize them so they can’t hurt anyone else.

Archie was fictional, though based probably on people Lear and the writers knew. Archie was surrounded by family who did not think like he did, and throughout the course of the show’s run, they mellowed him out some. MAGAts don’t have that tempering influence, because everything they believe is constantly reinforced by the RW echo machine, which has convinced them that “libs” are empty-headed heathens not worth their time to listen to. Worse yet, we’ve got a President who is openly a racist, who encourages racist and violent behavior by his followers. Add the MAGAt tendency to be authoritarian and to blindly imitate whatever their chosen leader does. and we’ve got Archie Bunker on steroids.

I’m not sure Lear if he were alive today [EDITED: Sorry, Mr Lear!] could have written All in the Family set in the present day. (OK, technically he adapted it from the British version, but my point stands.)

As I recall, my dad, a staunch Republican and a conservative kinda guy (though not racist), loved All in the Family. It was a show we could watch and enjoy together.
