In today’s episode, we analyze just a few words from Donald Trump (a president (of a country (with people in it))) to easily come to the conclusion that he’s malicious, incompetent, a liar, and someone constantly thinking about getting away with crimes.

Interesting factoid. Even though the Democrats gained control of the House, the GOP still has the majority of congressmen in 26 states, because of their dominance in small states. This means that in the event that a 3rd party candidate actually won some states, preventing either major party candidate from getting to 270 electoral votes, the House would elect the GOP candidate President, even if he finished third in the popular vote.

Gerrymandering is keeping the GOP alive.

That is going to change in NC, which now has a 6-1 Democratic majority on the state SC, so they are going to find gerrymandering violates the NC Constitution, and the federal courts can’t save the NC GOP.

Really, the only hope Schultz has of becoming President is if Trump’s support melts down so completely that Schultz becomes the defacto GOP candidate, and the Democrats nominate Tulsi Gabbard. It ain’t happening.

My count is GOP 25, Democrats 24, one evenly divided (MI). PA is in the Democrats’ column only until the May special election to replace Tom Marino, when it will likely be evenly divided again. And it would be the House elected in 2020 that would decide the Electoral College in that scenario.

I don’t think so, because the new Congress doesn’t convene until January 3.

I’m reluctant to admit it, but I’ve watched two Marie Kondo episodes so far, and I have come to a conclusion about why the show is popular.

We like seeing people who are even more disorganized than we are, and have way more shit than we do. Their messes make us feel better.

First episode had a young couple with small children and two jobs, a house full of stuff, and no real “adulting” mechanisms in place to bring order to the house.

Second episode had a retired couple with collecting mania: he had a 40-year baseball card collection and she had Christmas decorations all over the house. Plus, she’s a girly girl and buys clothes obsessively.

Both households had way too much stuff. I mean, embarrassingly way too much stuff. Each family could have had a series of yard sales over a summer and still had too much stuff. Been there, done that.

Imagine if those people had saved their money instead of buying all that junk. How much cash would they be sitting on? It’s the danger of living in a consumer society. Buying stuff you’ll never use or need makes people feel good. Saving money is dull and boring, plus the potential reward is perhaps years in the future.

Marie K ought to team up with Suze Orman.

Man I am really liking me some AOC

The Freedom Caucus Republican and his GOP colleagues told Oversight Chairman Elijah Cummings (D-MD) that “members should get more than three days’ notice to attend questioning of witnesses by Democratic staff lawyers. Meadows said five days was better, particularly for lawmakers who live far from Washington,” Bloomberg reported.

Ocasio-Cortez said she doesn’t “believe we need five days” if members are correctly doing their jobs, prompting Meadows’ response.

“Mr. Chairman, I can tell you on all of this at this particular point, we’re all wanting to cooperate,” the North Carolina Republican said. “Sometimes our schedules, you know, we’re not just sitting around eating bonbons, waiting for the call of anybody.”

The headline-grabbing freshman Democrat then asked Chairman Cummings if Republicans offered the same extension to Democrats during the last session — to which he responded that they hadn’t.

“OK,” she said. “Thank you.”

I bought my house 22 years ago and moved in on 1/24. I remember that the week after I bought the house, a polar vortex hit the Twin Cities and we had real temps near -40 for a couple of days. I worked in downtown Mpls. and parked in a lot about 5 blocks away from the office. I didn’t miss one day of work, and now I wonder how the fuck I did that. It’s in the -20’s here tonight and I know that I’m going to skip work tomorrow.

I actually was planning on going to work today, but Mrs. Fish had a follow-up to get her stitches out and get a progress check on her healing. (Everything looks great, by the way.) I am planning on driving in to work tomorrow, as I work in an office complex with skyways connecting the buildings. With that said, I can certainly see a time in the not-too-distant future where I probably won’t bother doing so. Interestingly, the kids do have both today and tomorrow off from school, but the company did not send any official indication that we were encouraged to stay home.

Yeah, the House is supposed to vote immediately. But they still need a majority of states. There’s also an oversight in that while DC gets electoral votes, it doesn’t get a vote for president in the House (or Vice President in the Senate) in the event no one gets to 270 electoral votes.

Also, the House is limited to choosing from the top three finishers in the electoral college.

re: #64 The Very Reverend Battleaxe of Knowledge

My theory is FOX News.

The NPR article mentions this:

In the end, the FBI determined the 64-year-old shooter, who rained a hail of bullets from a window of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino into an unsuspecting crowd below, was not driven by a religious, social or political agenda, nor did he have an accomplice to help him carry out his deranged mission. Just as the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department determined in August, the FBI agreed that Paddock acted alone.

I don’t think it was Fox News. His terror gun massacre was done for much simpler more mundane reasons, which makes it even sadder for those that survived.

Just a few days after saying the govt shutdown wasn’t affecting Kentuckians, Millionaire Matt Bevin shows how out of touch he is again. He doesn’t realize how many children would be waiting in sub/near zero temperatures for the bus in the morning because he won’t experience it.

When Bevin was a child, he had to be chauffeured 10 miles to school - in the snow - uphill - both ways!

Max Boot seems to have completely rethought his world view. Rick Wilson, I think the jury is still out on (he’s definitely still a conservative, but he seems willing to give up on issues).

I think that particular drum break gets used on YouTube videos, commercials and TV shows, too. It’s either the original recording or someone recreating it. I’ve heard it over and over again, not realizing it’s a sample.

re: #90 teleskiguy

Damn good question. Is it the “corporatists” from both sides of the aisle? Is it a bipartisan coalition of “burn the government down” crazies? I’m truly and utterly vexed.

It’s a complete misreading of the Democratic Party at the moment. This isn’t 1992 when the party had lost three straight elections and five of six; and wasn’t sure what it was. And the electorate of 2020 is wholly different from the 90s… hell, it’s completely different from 2004.

At this point, a third party challenger would be better suited to chase disaffected Republican voters. It only makes sense if you think you can not only get more votes than Trump in deep red states, while also holding off the Democrat - and that doesn’t even get to the element of likely losing swing states by big margins (and creating even more swing states - like allowing a Democrat to win Missouri with 45%).

Really, unless you think you can get to 35% in a three way race, you have no business being in.

So Steve Schmidt is back to being a political mercenary.

He is totally devoid of soul when money is at stake.

That’s why he and Nicole are still suspicious to me. They were willing to have Americans elect fricking Sarah Palin as VP to a man who was not in the best of health.

They water the downhill course at Beaver Creek for their annual early season World Cup Race. I’ve watched the process up close. They use the snowmaking hoses, so it’s basically firehosing the whole surface of the race course. Funny thing is that layer of ice never goes away all winter. It can snow two feet in 36 hours and you ski the downhill course at Beaver Creek and on the couple of really steep pitches the fresh snow just slides down into the trees below. Always a fun run to watch tourists flail. Also where this picture of me was taken a few years ago*.

*technically not a photograph, it’s a screen grab from this YouTube video.

re: #85 The Very Reverend Battleaxe of Knowledge

I’m old enough to remember when Jimmy Carter was literally, with malice aforethought, murdering children for keeping Daylight Savings Time running all year, because it was darker longer when kids were going to school. But freezing to death? Meh!

I have no memory of President Carter extending DST all year at any time between 1977 and 1980. In January 1974, as a result of the 1973 Energy Crisis, Nixon extended DST starting on January 6. In 1974, DST ran from January 6 to October 27. Standard time resumed on October 27, 1974. In 1975, DST started on February 23rd and ended on October 26th. I was in second and third grades at the time and do remember Mom being perturbed at the change and my second grade school altering its hours so our day would begin and end an hour later.

During the Carter years, DST ran from the last Sunday in April to the last Sunday in October.

Was just telling the 16 year-old….who will vote in 2020…that it’s good to have this many people so early. Gives us time to pick the best person. He has some reservations about Senator Harris, I told him to do his homework, no vetting by tweet. He’s on it.

Perot actually led in some polls before he dropped out. But again, the electorate and the parties were so different at that point, it’s not really an apt comparison.

But really, if you’re going to build a third party movement in this country, it has to be ground up not top down. Win seats in state legislatures, or in the House, then win state wide elections, then eventually run presidential campaigns.

When I started my senior year in high school (September 1972) Pennsylvania ordered all schools to start an hour earlier so instead of starting at 8AM school started at 7AM and I remember lots of sleepy kids yawning in the morning classes.

It may be cliché, I still abide by the adage ‘Think Global Act Local.’ The first step in politics is to talk with people face to face, and work from there. Total agreement, my friend!

JFC, yes!

The whole spirit of most third party advocates is grassroots power. Yet, far too many of them uses a top down strategy, which is the polar opposite of what they want. The contradiction between strategy and tactics just escapes most of them.
