I’d add that Schumer a year ago offered $25 billion for the wall in exchange for DACA and Trump said no. Back then, the Democrats hadn’t won the house yet, and knew that even if the money was appropriated the eminent domain lawsuits would keep it in the courts for a decade. Now, nope. Trump gets nothing.

Many are familiar with Caesar Creek State Park, but fewer probably know about a small piece of history in the middle of town: the “Harveysburg Free Black School” built by the Harvey family with the help of the church community.

Lucy McCarren is treasurer of the Harveysburg Community Historical Society.

“Dr. Jesse was a medical doctor and his wife, Elizabeth, was a school teacher and she was concerned that the black children in the community were not receiving an education because, at that time, there was a separation, of course, between the races,” McCarren said.

The Harveysburg Free Black School was the first free school for African-American children in Ohio.

The one-room building was constructed in 1831.

Harveysburg is a few miles south of Xenia, Ohio.

A couple of years ago, I was studying compiler and virtual machine design because I had some ideas on viewing software development as defining languages and implementing them (taking it even further than what I see in domain specific languages). At work, they ran into a problem with their data processor that required reimplementing part of the code as miniature virtual machine. There’s a reason they came to me with it.

“Russia used to be the Soviet Union. Afghanistan made it Russia because they went bankrupt fighting in Afghanistan. Russia. So you take a look at other countries. Pakistan is there. They should be fighting,” Trump said.
“But Russia should be fighting. The reason Russia was in, in Afghanistan was because terrorists were going into Russia. They were right to be there. The problem is it was a tough fight. And literally they went bankrupt. They went into being called Russia again as opposed to the Soviet Union,” he added.

re: #90 b_sharp

I’m a little sad that Amina (Curious Lurker) is remembered for her tendency to comment on dead threads.

If it were used in the original sense, the homage would be more apparent. When Curious Lurker did what she did, it was to work long and hard on a well-researched, informative, link-strewn comment, and if it wasn’t the very last thing posted on the overnight thread before Charles immediately posted the first thread of the day, thus depriving the post of the attention it so deserved, it seemed like it. I thought we were witnessing her doing brain rehab. She’s my role model. I’ll get to work on that brain rehab any day now. But if you’ll excuse me, I picked up and deposited the final payment for the sale of my shop today, and I must go celebrate. I celebrate CL every day.

She is already under pressure if she wants reelected.

She is obviously deciding she needs to get some separation from Trump.

I know she can’t be counted on. But she made the announcement. And I have the feeling she is doing it under protection of other Republican senators that are probably thinking about it too.

It’s politics and those Republican senators up for reelection in 2020 know what happened to the House in the last election. It is butt saving time.

I want that same pressure on my favorite senator, Ohio’s Rob Portman. He needs to go down because he is going to have to cater to his idiot base here in Ohio and I hope it costs him. I’ll be helping push him the fuck out.

We tried to get rid of our Republicypher Senator Deb Fischer here. Though we failed, it was close, and meanwhile the Nebraska Democratic Party did heroic work in rebuilding the party.

Hopefully that means we can oust Ben Sasse in the next election. His so-called “never Trumper” cred was shredded right out of the gate, and it wasn’t too long ago we had a Democratic senator.

Kansas flipped their governor’s seat in the last election; it’s not like there aren’t any Democrats here in the Plains states.

Over at CNN:

Just hours after Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi reclaimed the speaker’s gavel and Democrats returned to the power for the first time in eight years, the House sought to end the 13-day shutdown by voting 241-190 to fund eight of the nine shuttered departments.”

Republicans are calling it a pointless stunt.

Nope. Gets them on record as opposing reopening the government and puts the ball squarely on Mitch McConnell’s court. Moreover, Republicans defected to vote with the Democrats in the House. The pressure is going to be on in the Senate now.

Can you imagine what it’s like to be Donald Trump? It’s your second Christmas as president of the United States, and instead of spending it down at your beloved Mar-a-Lago in warm, sunny Palm Beach with hand-picked, dues-paying rich “friends,” you’re stuck in the White House in cold, rainy Washington D.C. surrounded by the hostile forces of the media, the deep state, and Robert Mueller’s spelunkers, who have been roping themselves down every horrid rabbit hole you’ve ever dug.

Not only that, but your “advisers” made you take an endless flight to visit the troops in Iraq to boost your PR over the holidays, which of course turned into a gigantic bust. Even forcing a government shut-down and putting a quarter of the deep state on the dole over Christmas didn’t do you any good. The market continued its steep downhill ride, and polls put the blame for the shut-down on you, not Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats.

Holy smokeroos.

Trump campaign and transition contacts with Russians: At least 14 individuals associated with Trump’s campaign and transition had personal contacts with Russians, according to the Washington Post. And if that’s not enough for you, The Moscow Project has produced a list of 97 specific contacts between Trump associates and Russians. Starting with Michael Cohen’s efforts on Trump’s behalf in 2015 to jumpstart the Trump Tower Moscow project and running straight through Erik Prince’s meeting with Russian banker and Putin ally Kirill Dmitriev in the Seychelles Islands in January of 2017, the list is a stunning recitation of an unprecedented phenomenon in American politics: agents of a Republican candidate for president of the United States apparently had more contacts with Russians during a presidential campaign than they did with county chairmen of the Republican Party.

I mean, let’s reach back into the old memory bank and pull out a few gems. Remember George Papadopoulos? He was the Trump campaign “foreign policy adviser” who was running around Rome and London meeting with such unlikely characters as “Professor” Joseph Mifsud, who he happened to run into in a coffee shop in Rome, and a “female Russian national” introduced to him as a cousin of Russian President Vladimir Putin. Papadopoulos had not less than 23 separate contacts with his Russian pals during the course of the campaign.

But even if Papadopoulos did nothing more than get drunk with Australian ambassadors at bars in London, there was so much action back in the USA it was head-spinning. Paul Manafort was on the phone and meeting in person with Konstantin Kilimnik. His pal Rick Gates was meeting with “an unnamed official” the FBI says had ties to Russian intelligence. Donald Trump Jr. was in contact with WikiLeaks and meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, along with Jared Kushner. Sessions was meeting here and there with Kislyak. Roger Stone was in contact via Twitter with Guccifer 2.0, now identified as a Russian intelligence agent who has been indicted by Mueller. Alleged Russian intelligence agent Maria Butina was having cocktails with Trump campaign national security aide J.D. Gordon. Kushner was meeting in Trump Tower with Kislyak and Russian banker Sergey Gorkov, a close ally of Putin. And just about this time in 2016, Trump national security aide Michael Flynn was texting and calling Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak not once, not twice, not three times, but seven times over a two-day period.

And, even if he wall is funded, it will be in litigation that last longer than trump every will (spit piss on his grave).

But I do not want to give him an inch.

Now that last part is possibly me being at the FUCK YOU NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY OR DO stage of this maladministration.

But those kids.

So, give him his money, but not just for DACA, but add in humane border treatment, no more private prisons profiting from this debacle, and a return to normal asylum policies and practices and I would fund it.

Of course, this is rational which means it will never fly.

Talked last night to a buddy who is one of Trump’s victims, furloughed not coming to work and finally got his first unemployment check in the amount of $185 which won’t cover his rent and his landlord doesn’t accept credit cards.

He gave her the form letter which she tossed in the trash can.

Article VI of the US Constitution (for all those so-called originalists and strict constructionists who are blathering on about how we are a Christian country and everyone needs to swear on the bible - a Christian bible at that):

The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious Test shall ever be required as a Qualification to any Office or public Trust under the United States.

So question…

If they sign DACA in exchange for Trump’s $5b vanity project…

Yea or nay?

im sure to be in the minority here. i say yea:

- IF the daca promise is ironclad, cant be undone and they are truly safe permanently. - trump et al are combing records and deporting people naturalized 30-40 years ago, etc., we’ve heard other stories about longstanding, quiet, productive, members of society booted out - not one captured ms-13

- there wont be much if any new “wall”. the money will go to repairs, and yes, possibly to a couple of new small sections. the rest will be eaten up and we all know where.

call it ‘wall money’. dont call it wall money. call it anything you like. there wont be a wall.

i consider it the cost to get the status of 600-700k, possibly 1.3M or more people settled once and for all

and since everybody knows 5B isnt nearly enough, when they need more money for the wall….

211

The GOP being the GOP as always. Covering for Trump. Ignoring impeachable acts because the GOP was benefiting from packing the courts with extremists, rolling back environmental protection, and undermining civil and voting rights across the nation.

Trump is all in on this - and the GOP agenda is Trump’s agenda.

That’s why they ignored Trump’s criminality. They can’t ignore it any longer as Democrats now get to use the checks and balances that the GOP threw out the window and only care about when they’re in the minority in Congress (and in reality, the GOP is a minority party given that they have won only one national election popular vote in the last ~30 years).

I am torn between DACA and trumps vanity wall.

The DACA kids deserve better. Living in, what I can only imagine as being abject fear every single day of their lives, is unimaginable.

And, even if he wall is funded, it will be in litigation that last longer than trump every will (spit piss on his grave).

But I do not want to give him an inch.

Now that last part is possibly me being at the FUCK YOU NO MATTER WHAT YOU SAY OR DO stage of this maladministration.

But those kids.

So, give him his money, but not just for DACA, but add in humane border treatment, no more private prisons profiting from this debacle, and a return to normal asylum policies and practices and I would fund it.

Of course, this is rational which means it will never fly.

I’m fine with Democrats offering up that any money received from Mexico can be appropriated for the wall, and that Trump has to show that the money came from Mexico and not any other funny money sources.

Wall funding is conditional on Trump getting the money from Mexico. Hold him to that promise.

That means that it’s still all on Trump. Trump wants the wall? Make Mexico pay for it - just as Trump promised.

I think something like this will fly with Trump. Maybe not the Republican Party, but if Trump agrees because he gets his “wall” the Republican Senators will have a tough time not going along because the Trump base will eat them up.

I, like many others here, think Trump just wants a wall with his name on it. He wants that monument to himself because he probably thinks it will stand forever and it will always be associated with him.

As soon as he is gone, one way or another, take his name off of it. If it ever gets built like you said.

A thought. He thinks stealth tech is cool. Remember those jets you can’t see? How about we tell him it will be a stealth wall. You can’t see it, but it is there.

I think trump just wants to be loved and idolized. The wall with his name on it is icing. He’d be a dem if he could be idolized.

The GOP and his racist base (including loudmouths like coulter and rush) would never allow amnesty, DACA, humane border treatment or any of that. So there will always be that impasse…his base turns on him completely (not to mention stephen miller would would likely knife trump in his sleep should he do a turnaround like that), so nothing will ever give.

I think a lot of the trump republicans (those who love him and anything he does) would be cool with it, but elected republicans and their related racists would not.

But I gotta say…the nom nom nom of the various flavors of republicans absolutely gouging on each other’s body parts would give me months of delight. And the thought of sessions going “i gave everything up, EVERYTHING, so this ignorant fool could stop being the racist piece of shit I am and turned back all the racist goodness I did” warms the cockles of my fucking hard heart.

GOP doesn’t have a Hillary this cycle but they sure as hell are going to invent one against whoever comes out of the Democratic party primaries, especially if it is Warren, Harris, Booker, etc.

Bernie will have his own problems but he’s not a registered Democrat.

8:33 AM - Jan 4, 2019

A reminder!

Things have changed…new rules from the DNC. This occurred back in early June 2018. Thanks to Bernie!

The Hill - DNC panel adopts rule requiring candidates to run, serve as a Democrat

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) adopted a new rule on Friday aimed at keeping outsider candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) from trying to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.

The new rule, adopted by the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee, requires all Democratic presidential candidates to be a member of the Democratic Party, Yahoo News reported.

A presidential candidate running for the Democratic nomination must be a member of the party, accept the Democratic nomination and “run and serve” as a member.

…more at link…

And of course I saw this when finding the link above.

Politico - DNC rule change angers Sanders supporters

A comment from that article…

“I really don’t get the motivation for the resolution at all,” he said. “You know, Bernie Sanders got 13 million votes in 2016. Thousands, if not millions, of those votes were young people and independents he brought into the Democratic Party. And I’m just stunned that the Democratic Party’s rules committee would want to try to make the Democratic Party an exclusive club, for which we want to exclude voters and large segments of the American electorate.”

He said, “I just find it a stunning resolution.”

Uh…if he brought new people into the Democratic Party, then why in hell would he not want to serve them as a Democrat???

Sanders folks just piss me off!

That is all true. But Trump’s large ass is in much more of a jam than it was then.

If Trump gets a “win” and can strut around saying he got his he will throw Miller under the bus and ignore him.

Trump is Trump, things change with him minute by minute.

Maybe someone in the White House can lock Miller in a room for a day or two while the wall and immigration legislation is pounded out and Trump signs off.

The problem I see developing is that DJT doesn’t care about the shutdown, the lack of government operations, or the furloughed workers, and Dems do, so the Dems are likely to just give DJT His money at some point, meaning the whole shutdown will have been for nothing. Maybe they’ll compromise on a smaller amount and something in exchange, but I don’t know.

Until someone comes along and tells him that brown people shouldn’t be allowed to stay. Remember, Democrats offered a fully funded wall, twice, in echange for citizenship for DACA and he was convinced to turn it down, most likely by Miller.

I thought it was Kelly who arranged to change Trump’s mind, not Miller. Remember, Kelly is racist trash just like Miller and Jeff Sessions.

re: #224 Dr. Matt

The background color of those two photos are different. It’s not entirely clear what is in the photo behind Warren.

Not only background color…in the left image it is on the top of a wood cabinet. That would be a wood top. It is not on wood in the other image.

I could Photoshop that little ceramic thing on top of that cabinet, replacing what ever was originally there in minutes. Also, it wouldn’t be that hard to change the pink to the yellowish color and have it placed on a wood-like base. That would take a bit to do, but if I was a Warren hater what is a little time to slime a politician?

Look at the top of the two things. They’re entirely different shapes. The one above Warren is bigger on top than the bottm, like a lid handle. There is no way the figure on the right can ever be angled to have that same shape. There are other differences as well.

There is a shaping tool in Photoshop (Warp) that could produce that effect. Blur it to appear in the background and you would never know.

I have a pretty good collection of old Photoshops I did back on an auto racing forum, plus all the stuff I’ve done here. And I don’t spend a lot of time.

Photoshop is an amazing image manipulator. If you spend enough time you can do some very deceptive imagery.

No I haven’t. There are other image manipulation programs too.

I started out using Photo Paint which was a competitor to Photoshop back in the early 90s. It then became part of CorelDraw’s graphic suite. I have that too, but never loaded it. I do use CorelDraw. No need for anything other image program since I am an Adobe Creative Suite subscriber.

What was particularly good about the report was that even as the economy added 312k new jobs, the unemployment rate went up. This indicates that a lot of people who previously didn’t think they could find a job have entered the workforce and started a job search. Despite the low unemployment rate, there are still a lot of prime age people not working, so the economy still has room to grow.

The article counts Mormons as Christian. Is that really accurate, or is it like the changing definition of who counts as white? Don’t their traditional theological views exclude them from that classification?

It’s an interesting argument if you like arguing theology (and I do :D ) Generally I don’t consider them to be a Christian denomination since there are just too many differences from the things that even Eastern Orthodox/Roman Catholic/Mainstream Protestant all agree on. That said, they’re no more off in the weeds than, say, my Anglicans are - there isn’t a religion on this planet that doesn’t have something odd in what they believe. I prefer to look at praxy - how do they live - which most folks do follow the golden rule and that’s good enough for me.

Pelosi Weighs in on ‘Impeach the Motherf*cker’: I Don’t Like the Language, but It’s No Worse Than Trump’s

The new congresswoman is standing by her comments after causing a major commotion by promising to “impeach that motherfucker.” MSNBC’s Joy Reid asked Pelosi for her response, and the House Speaker commented that she didn’t appreciate the foul words, but its no worse than Trump’s standards.

“I’m not in the censorship business,” Pelosi said. “I don’t like that language, I wouldn’t use that language…but I don’t think it’s anything worse than what the president has said.”

Pretty much a perfect response. She didn’t apologize for it. She didn’t amplify it. She called a spade a spade.

I don’t think it was internal polling that drove it. Nixon, from everything I’ve read on him, had become very paranoid by the time he became president. Particularly with respect to the Kennedys. He and JFK were friends early on, and apparently the Kennedys were ready to endorse Nixon in 1960 if JFK didn’t win the nomination. But things turned during the election.

Also, it’s not entirely clear that Nixon knew about the break in until after it happened, plausible deniability and all that. Most writing on it suggests that it was the brain child of G Gordon Liddy.

Police Open Investigation After Woman in Vegetative State For Over a Decade Gives Birth

A source familiar to the situation, who asked to remain anonymous, told local CBS-affiliate KPHO that none of the staff at the Hacienda HealthCare facility knew the patient was pregnant until she went into labor and began moaning. A nurse reportedly delivered the baby, who the source says was born healthy.

The KPHO reporter seemed to ask the source in a roundabout way about whether the patient was sexually assaulted, and the source definitively answered that there is no way the patient, who has been in a vegetative state for over a decade following a near-drowning incident, could have “defend[ed]” herself from being impregnated.

Sadly….this won’t be the most horrible thing you will hear about today.

Some of the possible outcomes: No Goldwater in 1964, possibly a very weakened Conservative Movement; JFK probably ends up president in the 70s; Medicare or some other form of universal health insurance might have been passed (see Ted Kennedy’s potential deal with Nixon); Vietnam probably goes very differently as well (I don’t know how, but no Kennedy and no Johnson).

Turns out they didn’t actually talk to any Native Americans. HP did, talking to tribal members, tribal leaders, &c. All they got was a big “meh”

Was Warren wrong to release DNA test results showing that she had a Native ancestor? Are tribal leaders and Native people mad? It depends on whom you talk to. In the group that HuffPost surveyed, the answer to both those questions was overwhelmingly no.

Richard Sneed, the principal chief of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians, said he’s not upset at all by Warren’s DNA test. He hasn’t heard from any tribal leaders who are mad either. His tribe is different from the Cherokee Nation and is based in North Carolina.

“It’s media fodder. It’s sensationalism. That’s what it is,” he said. “All it takes is for one person to say they’re offended, and then everybody does a dog pile. But to me, it’s ‘Wait a second. Let’s get to some of the facts here.’ Sen. Warren has always been a friend to tribes. And we need all the allies we can get.”

It’s an interesting argument if you like arguing theology (and I do :D ) Generally I don’t consider them to be a Christian denomination since there are just too many differences from the things that even Eastern Orthodox/Roman Catholic/Mainstream Protestant all agree on. That said, they’re no more off in the weeds than, say, my Anglicans are - there isn’t a religion on this planet that doesn’t have something odd in what they believe. I prefer to look at praxy - how do they live - which most folks do follow the golden rule and that’s good enough for me.

Behavior is one good angle. But my good Jewish friends would fit that description, lol. Conversationally, modern culture, ie less discriminatory language declares we all get to self identify.

IIRC, the backstory was that Howard Hughes had made a $100K+ (illegal) contribution to the Committee To Reelect The President (CREEP), and Nixon and his Miami cronies (alcohol was involved) were concerned that the Democrats had obtained proof of the contribution.

The local Miami Anti-Castro CIA trained guys were called in to surreptitiously look and see what info the Democratic Presidential Campaign headquarters had regarding this and other potential Republican campaign dirt.

Among Trump’s first actions was a rollback of National Monument protections for a huge chunk of Bears Ears.

That’s land sacred to multiple Native American tribes. The reason? Because Trump wanted to give companies the ability to mine/drill with abandon. He and GOP didn’t (and still don’t) care about Native American ties to the land, respecting their heritage and claims, and that land should be designated protected for future generations.

GOP made the estate tax something that everyone supposedly worried about, when it affects a fraction of a percent of all Americans.

They’ve raised the threshold repeatedly over the years, while reducing the tax rate.

The GOP continues to scam people about their fiscal responsibility (they have none). They’re out to fleece taxpayers and shift the burdens to those least able to endure them. They want to gut the safety net so millionaires can bolster their bank accounts even further. SS/DD.

Addressing the tax system to make it more progressive means making sure that those in the top tax bracket are paying their fair share. It means auditing the hell out of those folks, because they’re using every tax dodge available to them - and as we’ve seen with Trump, using money laundering to claim tax benefits while funneling money back and forth to a purported charitable foundation. Trump’s hardly alone, but he’s certainly among the most brazen. And he probably thinks that because he does it, everyone else does it too.

Our other big spending in the 1950’s was the Marshall Plan.

All we got in return was 70 years as undisputed Leaders Of The Free World.

Alexandria has a killer smile.

She sure knows how to handle the internet crap.

I think it was Rachel Maddow that was saying this new crop of Democrats are all young enough to be digital savvy. That is for sure. Welcome to the new politics.

Many of them have never been alive before there was an Internet.

re: #371 Unshaken Defiance

Behavior is one good angle. But my good Jewish friends would fit that description, lol. Conversationally, modern culture, ie less discriminatory language declares we all get to self identify. I doubt the average Mormon needs anyone to “mansplain” what they are or are not. Let alone critics of the same.

I think we can all agree that all religions are crazy and unnecessary. Individuals can easily follow “The Golden Rule” but religions as organizations never do.
