Speaking of Tusk, Lindsey Buckingham had a heart attack and underwent open-heart surgery yesterday. I took my 14yo to see him a couple of months ago. His voice was a bit ragged but he kicked ass on guitar.

Well, I’m managing to do it without weed, but given it’s legal in CA now, I have been asking whether company policy still forbids using it during off hours (had to pee in a cup for the job).

If the company is in any way associated with the federal government, it is still illegal.

Colorado’s legal cannabis law has a NIMBY clause written into it, where municipalities can decide if they want weed stores or not. The town I live in has no weed stores because the town’s government has rejected weed stores. The nearest weed store is the next town over, about eight miles.

My favorite is the Aspen versus Vail thing where Aspen clearly wins. Aspen has weed stores, Vail does not.

When I was a kid in Abilene, TX, the city was dry. The road I lived on led to a small town, Impact, completely inside the city. There was a liquor store there, that everyone went to. It made it hard to play in the street.

Outside of Rockwall, there’s a little town called Mobile City, that consists of a liquor store and a trailer park. It exists because, up until about 10 or so years ago, Rockwall was dry. It’s still the only place in the area you can buy hard liquor.

I haven’t smoked weed since 1985 — scratch that, I had some while visiting my son in Denver a couple of years ago. When I was younger, I didn’t give much thought about the effects of smoking on my lungs. Now, almost 35 years later, I take it into consideration. I haven’t tried edibles in ages.

My city (Mesa) won’t allow any dispensaries in the city. However, there are a number of county islands in the city, originally set up so the retirement communities wouldn’t have to pay city or school taxes. It turns out some of these county islands have developed corners with tiny shopping centers and office complexes. I still remember my surprise when the first dispensary went in, I couldn’t figure out how it was done until I whipped out a map and figured out it was a corner in a county island.

If we want to get serious about selling alcohol then we need to simplify the language in the laws. We’ve already done it in real life. It’s called the *bar*. A place where you can buy alcoholic beverages.

My stepson and his wife live in a wet city in a dry county in KY. I didn’t realize it until I saw the wet-dry map I just posted.

In China, there are no apparent restrictions on what liquor you can buy where. Age restrictions are loosely enforced, so it’s no big deal for 15-year-olds to buy and drink beer (it’s pretty weak here, anyway) but unlike American teens, they don’t feel compelled to party and get trashed on the weekends — even if they could. There is also a sharp delineation by gender here. More men typically drink beer and hard liquor (baijiu, for the most part) than women do. Wine is becoming more fashionable, OTOH, so it’s common to see both men and women partake at dinner parties. Bars, in the American sense, used to be uncommon, but since I’ve been here have become more prevalent.

I blame that on us turning alcohol into something special, something all-powerful, and something we must restrict. At that point, we’ve made it into something some people must have as a rite of passage, rather than something parents should teach their kids about.

Two accretion discs with a combined spin center? They could have slowly orbited each other until they finally connected and fused (or at least formed a gravitic bond).

Not so hard to imagine, although two bodies matching speed and orbits is freakishly unlikely.

And yet, in the fullness of time, it has to be the only reasonable explanation.

Too bad the Bernie Bros are trying to throw another election: they are just as fanatic and delusional as in 2016.

Not terribly interested in weed. Don’t care if other people partake, though. And as I get older, there’s always the possibility of medical use, so there’s that.
My preferred mind-altering drug is a glass of wine. Or a mixed drink once in a while.
I’m boring. ;)

Weed used to be my drug of choice, but lately, If I smoke enough to move the needle at all, I wind up in a state of existential catatonia and often get a racing heart that makes me think I am on the verge of a seizure. Really kinda of dampens the enjoyment.

Somehow that doesn’t surprise me. Traveled through Mich. a time or three when I was a kid. Every town had different liquor laws. Shut down for any booze in one town, just traveled 10 minutes to the next and you could drink in the bar and get package too.

Good way to encourage drinking and driving. My town recently advanced civilization, defeating the Southern Baptists and finally allowed Sunday liquor sales. However Kentucky still won’t even legalize medical marijuana.

I find it funny that they mentioned Jones county. Some personal and Texas history. Jones county is north of Taylor County, where Abilene is located. Inside Jones county is the town of Anson. Anson Jones was the name of my elementary school, which was also the name of the last President of the Republic of Texas.

And this concludes this episode of Connections.

At least he was only a one-time traitor (to Mexico) if only because he didn’t live to 1861. Has there been any discussion about taking the Texian Rebels’ names off any of the things named for them, or am I very lucky that I’m not physically in the state, because the very act of suggesting it would still get me shot?

In other news, artist/photographer Nan Goldin led a “die-in” at the Guggenheim Museum and led a march to the Metropolitan Museum yesterday. The protest was over these institutions taking money from the Sackler family, which gave us Oxycontin and the opioid epidemic.

Here’s a video. I watched it all the way to the end, to the testimony of a heartbroken mom who lost her son to opioid overdose.

I continue being concerned that with potentially 20 candidates running, the one with the most fanatic followers can win. And if these followers fail to get their candidate nominated, as they should, they will throw a fit and denounce the winner as a “corporatist stooge”.

And in hindsight, he’s still a lot less of a traitor than the ones who lasted to vote to secede from the US, because the country they’d pledged their loyalty to had already died when Santa Anna made himself dictator. That would be the type of “treason” we’d be looking at if heaven forbid Trump’s sidelining of Congress were upheld and THEN California and the other cannabis states pulled out.

I recall growing up in Indiana when the drinking age was 21 but 18 in neighboring Michigan, so yes, we were encouraged to drive the 30 miles into Michigan to drink.

Then we turned 19 and only had to drive 20 miles to get to Illinois, where the age was 19 for beer and wine.

I recall driving home with one eye closed because I was seeing double, and I was the most sober one of the bunch, the rest were half passed-out or puking.

The plan is to make enhanced herb butter and put it in and on everything. Dude and I will be much happier and far more well adjusted.

Reminds of a few years ago when we visited neighbors for a dinner with strong White Sangria. My wife loved the fruit, that had been soaked in some alcohol, so they gave her a bag of leftover fruit.

The next morning, I was running a disc golf tournament at my home. At about 8:30 am she came out told me she was tipsy because the fruit still had alcohol in it and she had eaten it for breakfast.

I told her to go inside and eat some food. She did. She ate the fried eggs I had not finished that morning, made with strong cannabutter.

Ballantine’s was priced at 298 yuan for 500 ml ($44) while this one retails for almost a tenth of that. Surprisingly, it is actually not bad. 40% alcohol by volume, and it is bottled in Qingdao, which is famous for the Tsingtao brewery. I am drinking it neat, and not getting any bad aftertaste or throat burn.

The English brand name is a clumsy play on the Chinese brand name “zhen ai” = distinguished affection or “be inclined to be distinguished.”

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. Trump’s lying his ass off on Twitter this morning in a series of ranting tweets.

He’s lying about the wall, Democrats, the media, and his enemies generally.

He’s doing what he always does. He also projects like IMAX - claiming others are breaking the laws that he’s actually broken. When he talks about illegals, he doesn’t want people to remember that Trump’s golf resorts repeatedly hired undocumented workers and paid them wages far below what they should be paid given what they were being asked to do - and without benefits.

Trump businesses profit - which means Trump profited directly from the hiring of undocumented workers. This was a pervasive and ongoing issue until journalists started prodding the golf resorts and they started firing people.

Trump doesn’t mind illegals when he’s hiring them to maximize his profits. He just doesn’t want the competition, and is pandering to the white nationalist base concurrently.

It’s what he does.

Liquor has come a long way in 10 years here. Red wine was hard to come by, other than the domestic brands (which are not bad, in fact). Now, imported wines are everywhere. I can pick up a decent label from Stellenbosch in South Africa called Two Oceans for about $10 at a local grocery. I had a Spanish red for dinner, and it was only $5. Nothing wonderful, but drinkable, like the French vin ordinaire.

Congress is trying to keep the shop open, at least.

Key lawmakers plan to meet Monday afternoon in a late-stage bid to avert a government shutdown, trying to revive talks that derailed over the weekend amid a dispute on immigration enforcement rules.

House Appropriations Committee Chairman Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.), Senate Appropriations Committee Chairman Richard Shelby (R-Ala.), Rep. Kay Granger (R-Texas) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) will attend the meeting, two congressional aides said.

Lawmakers had hoped to reach an agreement by midday Monday, a timeline they thought was sufficient to win House and Senate approval this week. But talks broke down over the weekend, leading to acrimonious finger-pointing and angry outbursts from President Trump.

To avert a partial shutdown set to begin Saturday, the House and Senate must pass identical spending bills that Trump would then need to sign into law.

re: #134 lawhawk

Greets and saluts from the NYC metro area. Trump’s lying his ass off on Twitter this morning in a series of ranting tweets.

He’s lying about the wall, Democrats, the media, and his enemies generally.

He’s doing what he always does. He also projects like IMAX - claiming others are breaking the laws that he’s actually broken. When he talks about illegals, he doesn’t want people to remember that Trump’s golf resorts repeatedly hired undocumented workers and paid them wages far below what they should be paid given what they were being asked to do - and without benefits.

Trump businesses profit - which means Trump profited directly from the hiring of undocumented workers. This was a pervasive and ongoing issue until journalists started prodding the golf resorts and they started firing people.

Trump doesn’t mind illegals when he’s hiring them to maximize his profits. He just doesn’t want the competition, and is pandering to the white nationalist base concurrently.

It’s what he does.

more than that

five disparate entities all with the same ‘problem’ all owned and managed by the same guy / org?

they more than ‘knew’. whether they set the scheme up themselves or not, they did it consciously. premeditated.

Going to one of the safest cities in the nation to rail that crime is out of control and that we need a wall.

El Paso crime rates dropped before the wall section was built there, and it leveled off after - showing that there’s no relationship between building a wall and crime.

Given most drugs are coming via ports of entry, the wall will have no effect.

Given most here illegally are on overstay visas, the wall will have no effect.

Trump keeps pushing a wall that a majority of the nation doesn’t want, and that support for the wall is strongest the furthest you are from an actual border.

From washingtonpost.com:

— During their conversations, there were some moments on-air when Trump and Bannon disagreed. Though not many.

Last November, for instance, Trump said he was concerned that foreign students attending Ivy League schools have to return home because of U.S. immigration laws.

“We have to be careful of that, Steve. You know, we have to keep our talented people in this country,” Trump said. He paused. Bannon said, “Um.”

“I think you agree with that,” Trump said. “Do you agree with that?”—

as has been said here more than a few times, in general for any serious wall project, there will be planning, studies, feasibility, etc. we all know, not a chance

first, there would have to be direct questions and direct answers as to why a wall would be necessary (ie what exact and specific problems it would be addressing) and demonstrable proof that said wall would work to solve those specific problems.

222
Eclectic Cyborg  Feb 11, 2019 • 9:09:54am

I’ve had (and continue to have) long talks with God about homosexuality.

The fact is in, Jesus’ time, there was no such thing as a healthy, public same sex relationship. There’s also some question as to whether or not the scriptures that reference homosexuality are actually talking about it directly or using the term as a placeholder for perverse sexual behaviors. In addition, the English translation of the scriptures themselves is not flawless because there are some words and syntax from Hebrew, Greek and Aramaic that just don’t translate directly.

Obviously all of us know there are plenty of perverse sexual behaviors that are bad and have nothing to do with homosexuality.

So, I choose to follow Jesus’ command to love everyone and take care of them. I have a gender fluid niece who is going through a lot of crap right now and I’ve told her my home is a safe place for her. She will not be judged, she will not be insulted or demeaned. She’ll be clothed, fed, sheltered and respected.

Because I think that’s what Jesus would want me to do.

Construction started in the Communist Era, but then the 1989 Revolution came, and of course, that was end of that. The building skeleton (it was referred to locally as the “Skelet”) was left standing while the local authorities figured out what the hell to do with it.

Well, the project is now done.

Here’s before:

and here’s a photogallery of the finished result:

moravskoslezsky.denik.cz

Looks much better.

Meanwhile, the GOP wants to slash SNAP funding, where each dollar of funding ends up generating $1.70. It’s one of the most efficient programs for economic growth and development - all while feeding a population, improving education outcomes, and reducing hunger.

In 2009, the peak year of the last recession, $50 billion in SNAP benefits were spent in local stores, generating about $85 billion in local economic activity, even as the overall economy was struggling.

Once in a half marathon, a guy bouncing two basketballs simultaneously passed me and finished before me.

Three things to remember:

- We all get faster with practice. If you learn easy, light and smooth, fast is almost an automatic natural byproduct.
- Your legs/feet are the engine, like a bike or a car (gears aside). To go faster you spin the engine faster. You don’t change the ‘shape’ of the engine’s movements.
- You can. Half of running is the mental game of convincing yourself you can do what your body already knows it can.

There’s a building at the WTC that’s barely a stub because it hasn’t gotten funding/financing/interest to build until now - 2WTC. For a long time, 3WTC was about 10 stories tall because there wasn’t enough interest to build it out. That’s now done. 2WTC might now get built out despite not having an anchor tenant (Fox was the latest to consider the location, but they bailed).

For those who are interested, here’s an absolutely brutal summation of last night’s Grammy telecast. Brutal cuz it’s true.

What is music to you? To your heart? To your life?

Maybe it is this: Ecstasy and repetition. Identity and release. Music is the electric connection between your buzzing, happy, elated head and the starry dynamo in the machinery of night. Music is the way your heart thumps when the kick drum pushes the air of the old theatre. Music is your connection with the primeval memory of the rhythm of sweatshops and plantations, the high sigh of shtetl weddings, and the sand dances of Saharan ceremony.

Music is memory: Playground chants and first-love stares; tenth grade stargazing and skating on beer slick in sophomore dorm basement parties; evenings spent watching bleached-blonde-dyed Brits scratching the air and climbing imaginary ladders in smoky, blue-lit old vaudeville halls; nights passed sharing stale air with shimmering, sibilant, shrieking cowpunk Canadians in narrow booze cans in the gray hours before dawn; mornings spent mummified in sheets waiting for the record store to open. Music is that song in the car on the way home from Hebrew school, that song bursting into your ears on the 7 train on the way to your new job. Music is the mnemonics of melody, ecstasy and repetition, identity and release.

The Grammy telecast had nothing to do with any of that.

Worth the read.

Here is some carry-over from last night’s discussion.

As mentioned last night by me and others after VB brought it up, this is causing some problems for the new Muslim Congresswoman.

Newsweek - CONGRESSWOMAN ILHAN OMAR SLAMMED FOR ‘STUNNINGLY ANTI-SEMITIC TWEET’

A Jewish advocacy organization has called out Democrat Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, characterizing a tweet she wrote about the pro-Israel lobby as “stunningly anti-Semitic.”

Representative Ilhan Omar of Minnosota retweeted a post Sunday implying that she believed the Israel lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), was paying American politicians to hold pro-Israel positions.

The American Jewish Committee promptly responded to Omar, also on Twitter, positing that: “Suggesting that a Jewish organization is buying off American politicians is both demonstrably false and stunningly anti-Semitic. American politicians are pro-Israel because Americans are.” The advocacy group also called on the congresswoman to apologize.

After the Opinions Editor at The Forward, Batya Ungar-Sargon, tweeted: “Would love to know who @IlhanMN thinks is paying American politicians to be pro-Israel, though I think I can guess. Bad form, Congresswoman. That’s the second anti-Semitic trope you’ve tweeted,” Batya Ungar-Sargon, Omar responded: “AIPAC!”

Neither Omar’s office in Minnesota nor in Washington immediately responde to Newsweek ‘s request for comment about the tweet, which appeared to invoke an old anti-Semitic stereotype portraying Jews as rich, and using their wealth to orchestrate political affairs.

Omar had retweeted the journalist Glenn Greenwald earlier Sunday, who had retweeted a news story about California GOP representative Kevin McCarthy promising action against Omar and the Democratic representative for Michigan, Rashida Tlaib, for alleged anti-Semitism. Omar had captioned Greenwald’s tweet with the comment: “It’s all about the Benjamins baby.”

The congresswoman drew opprobrium from pro-Israel social media users and praise from those who support her position on the BDS movement, which advocates a boycott of Israel over its treatment of Palestinians.

…more at link…

And then this…

Newsweek - NANCY PELOSI, OTHER DEMOCRATIC LEADERS CALL ON ILHAN OMAR TO APOLOGIZE, CLAIM SHE USED ‘ANTI-SEMITIC TROPES’

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, as well as other Democratic leaders—criticized fellow Democratic Representative Ilhan Omar for what they said in a statement were “anti-Semitic comments” the freshman congresswoman made on Twitter Sunday.

“Anti-Semitism must be called out, confronted and condemned whenever it is encountered, without exception,” the statement released by Pelosi read.

It added, in part:

“We are and will always be strong supporters of Israel in Congress because we understand that our support is based on shared values and strategic interests. Legitimate criticism of Israel’s policies is protected by the values of free speech and democratic debate that the United States and Israel share. But Congresswoman Omar’s use of anti-Semitic tropes and prejudicial accusations about Israel’s supporters is deeply offensive. We condemn these remarks and we call upon Congresswoman Omar to immediately apologize for these hurtful comments.”

This story is developing and will be updated…

That’s all pretty cool sounding, but for 80+% of the world, it’s none of that.

Music has never moved you?

You’ve never gotten off on a new release?

You have never remembered your past due to some song from that time?

Counterpoint:

The Grammy telecast was, in fact, an AWESOME!! fashion show.

Beautiful, beautiful, clothing. And some pretty good dancing.

So, your counterpoint is it really has nothing to do with the music? /

re: #304 Belafon

1. Eric Boehlert wrote an article about Elizabeth Warren, her run, and the press: dailykos.com. That alone is enough to read.
2. While I don’t really think Elizabeth Warren should move out of the Senate, a good thing about her run is that people are going to learn early about how the media is going to act this cycle. We can at least be a bit more prepared.

a nearly perfect quote:

the press no longer really cares what the facts of her family background are

re: #326 dangerman-call me sandy, not a drink named Steve

you can’t ‘retire’ at 38 on travel points for the next 60+ years
you cant (well oughtnt) touch retirement funds till 59 1/2
so unless you’ve socked lots away in non-retirement funds…

that means enough to live on and enough to invest for growth…
unless you’;ve really downsided and changed your standard of living (which is fine)

this is just nonsense
these folks are going back to work 5 years maybe 10 or more.

An acquaintance retired over 30 years ago — her goal was retirement before age 40 and she managed it. The husband did continue working, but it was more an avocation rather than a serious career. She had always been the primary breadwinner in the home. They moved to a much less expensive area of the country, downsized, and have lived very modestly ever since.

These people believe that at one time here on earth everything was perfect. And then a woman ate a forbidden apple after being tempted by a talking snake. And after that everything became fucked up. Like that there bird. That bird is the result of sin just like all sexual “perversions” to these iron-age throwbacks.
