TBH I wasn’t. Can you honestly tell me how we’re supposed to choose a candidate if we’re not critical. I’m sorry but I think this whole idea of not being critical is wrong. I liken it to peer review in classes. I can be critical without bashing someone. For example, if Biden IMO continues to oppose legalization, I will criticize him because we have seen legalization work in Colorado, Washington, and other states. I won’t call him a Narc or as bad as Trump but I sure as hell will criticize it. I feel that’s my right as a Democrat and a voter.

We don’t have a candidate. We have 20 candidates. How are we supposed to choose the best one if we don’t offer criticism? I’m not saying we bash these men and women for goodness sake. I’m saying we discuss and criticize the issues. And you know what, I’m for praising when right is right too. I think you are taking my word criticism way too literally here. How do you think candidates are chosen in a primary? They’re not chosen by having their weaknesses ignored. I’d much rather get something out of the way in our primaries before the GOP can use it as a weapon against us.

And if there’s just praise and silence, we don’t get the best possible candidate. I’m not saying we resort to name calling but we have every right to speak critically of the candidates. They’re not all alike. Offer praise when praise is deserved, Warren has definitely for example earned my praise for how she talked about infant mortality and Beto earned it by acknowledging why we need mental health coverage as well as health coverage. I really think you’re taking my word criticism way too hrashly here.

Bashing: Joe Biden is a Neo-Lib, corporate sell out.

Criticism: I think Vice President Biden’s record on this issue is too cautious, Candidate X’s record is better and I think would make him a better candidate.

And honestly sometimes candidates deserve the criticism they get. Sanders being tone deaf on a question of Civil Rights is deserving of criticism. Sanders’ terrible record on the Russian Interference while he continues to blame the DNC for why what happened in 2016 merits criticism.

Criticism means two things: Unwarranted personal attacks, and reasoned critique.

Questioning how Elizabeth Warren might bring about her tax proposals, whether they would work as she describes, and asking for more information is constructive criticism.

Calling her Pocahontas as a racist slur is racist criticism. We can leave the racism to the conservatives and have constructive criticism to build better plans and platforms.

That’s how the PUMAs happened. They talked themselves and each other into hating Obama. We can’t have that happen this time.

There is a lot of Dem-on-Dem sniping going on in the Twitterverse, and it’s disconcerting. My worst nightmare is getting to the convention and having the 2019 equivalents of PUMAs all over the place.

There was a big agile software conference across the street from this thing. If you know agile culture, it is the antithesis of Trumpism.

My friends were sending me pictures all day with appropriate commentary. One presenter got up on stage with a “MAGA” hat, “Make Agile Great Again.” People walked out immediately.

Fun times, fun times.

My company is switching to an agile culture, and, being a defense contractor, is full of conservatives, so that’s pretty funny.

Oliver North got a mention in one episode of The Americans. “Story by Oliver North & Tracey Scott Wilson” —shows up at 8min mark of Season 2, Disc3, Episode2, “Martial Eagle”. The Jennings pair are sent to a Central American country, and tasked with covertly photographing covert US military/CIA training on secret bases of local recruits in various deadly military equipment and tactics for use against certain local civilian groups.

Some of the Avengers cast are on Jimmy Kimmel. Chris Hemsworth said that the line “He’s a friend from work” was created by a kid on the set of Ragnarok.

Cleaned up.

I love hearing little tidbits like that.

I saw Endgame yesterday. I was surprised that (1) it was pretty long and (2) I really didn’t mind. Fair warning, though, do NOT drink a lot of liquids during the movie.

I was a bit disappointed in the relatively brief screentimes of Captain Marvel, who pops in at the beginning — oh, hi, I’m a totally new (to all y’all) hero who can kick all y’all’s asses — disappears throughout most of the flick, then arrives in the nick of time to battle Thanos — whose ass she did not kick successfully. But, she got her own movie, so there’s that.

The version I watched was for the Chinese market (since I am in China), so I wonder if there were any differences between it and the version released in the States. Sometimes, the studios slip in extra scenes to localize flicks, and sometimes censors take out scenes for local reasons.

When they don’t or can’t, this kind of thing happens:

I’d like to see this primary campaign play out like a “scramble” in golf. (The idea of a scramble is that everybody takes their tee shot, but then everybody plays from the point of the best ball after that, and then from the best ball after that, etc., on every hole. The final score is the product of all those best shots.

One candidate comes out with a terrific statement on, say, the student-debt crisis. Mark that spot and everybody move to within a club-length of that location. Then everybody takes another swing at the next issue. Take the best idea and move on from there.

The stories my rabbi used to tell of his days first in the Hagganah, and then a small unit in the war of independence, fit that description.

As Hagganah, they were all sabras, almost half women (including the cell leader, who eventually became his rebbetzin). They were a good mix of kibbutzniks and city kids, by the time the war started they’d added DP’s from 4 different European nations, and some American vets. Rule 1 for downtime between missions was “whoever’s the best at anything, has to teach everyone else” — so no matter how high the casualty rate, no skills would be lost. By the end of the war, every last one of them could repair an engine, make bullets, make camouflage suits, track/kill/cook dinner, and do First Aid.

So, I wake up this morning and see that a low-level civil war is going on in the NRA, between Ollie North and Wayne LaPierre. Heh.

I’d be willing to bet that the NRA is rife with a shit ton of graft and corruption. For many, many years they had a veritable tsunami of money coming in and I wouldn’t be at all shocked to learn that Wayne probably pocketed some of that. It’s also entirely possible that Ackerman McQueen, Inc., the advertising company, was in on the scheme: maybe they overbid for that NRA contract and sent Wayne a nice little kickback.

The irony in all this is that if that suspicion is correct, Oliver North is actually doing the right thing by trying to get rid of LaPierre - that being said, he shouldn’t be resorting to mafiosi methods to get LaPierre to resign. He should present his evidence in a straightforward manner and let the chips fall where they may.

re: #198 Dave In Austin

Of course, Ollie isn’t blameless in this risible farce either.

The National Rifle Association took a shot at its own president just days before the kick-off of its huge national meeting.

An updated version of a civil complaint, entered in Virginia state court on April 24, make new claims about Col. Oliver North’s relationship with the company that runs NRATV, the video network linked to the gun-rights group. The filings are part of an eye-popping lawsuit the organization filed against its long-time ad agency, which built and runs the network. The suit gives a rare narrative of the tension within the organization. And the updates to the litigation, which have not been previously reported, indicate that friction in the organization is so hot that the NRA is willing to zero in on its own president.

The initial complaint, filed on April 12, discussed North’s contract with Ackerman McQueen, the advertising firm it has worked with for upwards of 30 years. But it didn’t provide much detail on North’s relationship with the ad agency beyond that he would help it produce a documentary series for NRATV.

The updates to the complaint include more detail about North’s work and point to deep irritation between the group and its president. Not only did North fail to deliver on all of the material he promised for NRATV, the suit alleges. North, in effect, double-dipped by drawing a salary from both the gun-rights group and Ackerman McQueen at the same time. Meanwhile, The Wall Street Journal published a letter LaPierre sent to the NRA board on Thursday alleging that North tried to blackmail him into quitting the organization.

Representatives of the NRA, North, and Ackerman McQueen did not comment for this story.

No offense intended, but you’re a cisgendered male. I’m sure the lump got larger than it would have been on me, but how did you notice it even then?

One day I stretched out my right arm a few weeks ago, and searing pain screamed from my armpit to my nipple. I first thought that was just some odd thing, but it kept doing it.

I then called the VA and asked WTF. They walked me through a series of questions designed to rule out an infection of some sort, then how to do a self-exam.

They then said they would arrange to get a mammogram, which took several days to find anyone around my area who can do them on men (the VA here can’t).

I’d prefer that the filibuster be kept, but you actually have to be on the floor do it. Maintaining such a filibuster requires you keep your people in the Senate, because the second too many of them leave, the filibuster can be broken and a vote called immediately.

Contemplating randomness… it may come as a bit of a surprise, but the idea of “random” is a troubling one, not as easy to pin down as one may expect.

This comes on the heels of my obsession with lotteries.

There is a bit of an addiction to the Law of Large Numbers, when it comes with trying to explain things.

Knowing the above is important because if one looks at the history of MegaMillions and PowerBall draws, one may think the numbers drawn are not random. Indeed, there are plenty of websites out there that try to convince people that the draws are not random but fit some sort of pattern (that is predictable, and if you only subscribe to the right service…)

The lotteries look like they are not random because some numbers have come up much more frequently than others, and even more disturbing is that certain pairs of numbers have come up together in a draw much more often than rest of the set of all pairs.

The troubling thing is that there is no way to prove that a lottery draw has to be “random”. By which I do not mean that a game is rigged by the lottery company.

This, btw, is, I suspect, why there are still people who hold hidden variable (or spin-offs thereof such as pilot-wave) beliefs when it comes to quantum mechanics.

We humans, it appears, believe that some event has to be caused by some prior event or events. This is the tact creationists often take when trying to trip up non-creationists.

re: #231 Colère Tueur de Lapin

There are deeper problems here, though, beyond the human proclivity to find patterns.

Considerable writings on the topic of “randomness” have resulted in at best a murky definition of what it meant by “random”.

The problem underlying our discussion is the difference between statistics (that is, the data accumulated through measurement) and thus what may be termed statistical randomness, and a more abstract meaning of “random” (in sense of inherently having no cause.)

Strictly speaking, the lotteries do not measure well as “random” but we tend to argue that away because the sample size ( a few hundred drawings) is so much smaller than the sample space (around three hundred million). There is a local non-randomness, but we believe that there is still a global randomness.

I remember when Ms. magazine had articles about ‘letting’ lesbians into the women’s movement. And not-very-flattering discussions (limited and one-sided) of women of color.

I was listening to a podcast I discovered Wonderly’s American History Tellers since a friend recommended me one of their podcasts about sports. They had one on the Civil Rights Movement and it correctly IMO started in WWII with the efforts by A. Phillip Randolph to desegregate the defense industries. Randolph is someone I think often forgotten even though he was the one who organized the march where MLK gave the famous Dream speech and I actually see his status often at Washington’s Union Station since he was head of the trade union for the Train Porters. And I was reminded of just how recent some of this stuff was. I also learned about how vital women were especially to the Civil Rights Movement. We get to a better future IMO by being able to talk about the past without excuses.

I once tried to get through my mother’s racism by appealing to her knowledge of the barriers she had to deal with as a woman (she was born in 50, so she knows about not being able to get a loan on her own). It didn’t work. She just couldn’t translate that to other people.

re: #224 freetoken

Contemplating randomness… it may come as a bit of a surprise, but the idea of “random” is a troubling one, not as easy to pin down as one may expect.

This comes on the heels of my obsession with lotteries.

There is a bit of an addiction to the Law of Large Numbers, when it comes with trying to explain things.

Knowing the above is important because if one looks at the history of MegaMillions and PowerBall draws, one may think the numbers drawn are not random. Indeed, there are plenty of websites out there that try to convince people that the draws are not random but fit some sort of pattern (that is predictable, and if you only subscribe to the right service…)

The lotteries look like they are not random because some numbers have come up much more frequently than others, and even more disturbing is that certain pairs of numbers have come up together in a draw much more often than rest of the set of all pairs.

The troubling thing is that there is no way to prove that a lottery draw has to be “random”. By which I do not mean that a game is rigged by the lottery company.

This, btw, is, I suspect, why there are still people who hold hidden variable (or spin-offs thereof such as pilot-wave) beliefs when it comes to quantum mechanics.

We humans, it appears, believe that some event has to be caused by some prior event or events. This is the tact creationists often take when trying to trip up non-creationists.

I think part of this is that human brains are hard-wired from our evolutionary past to look for patterns in sets of random-ish input; e.g. “is that a predator profile in those leafy bushes over there?” So we seek to find patterns constantly.

And true random is *not* going to produce an even distribution of points. It is going to produce blotches and empty spaces because it’s random. And I think a lot of people don’t understand this, or think that it’s “wrong” somehow.*

* - And for the life of me I still don’t quite get how some people I know have uncanny luck with random devices like dice and cards. Though part of it is them knowing to some degree where to take risks that will give larger payoffs.

Indiana Bans Safest Second-Term Abortion Method, Because They Just Really Love Life (Wonkette)

Indiana’s governor just signed into law bills which ban the D+E method of abortion, which is the safest method in the second trimester.

You can’t even reason with these people. You can’t have a discussion with these people because they want to confine the discussion to the contours of the box their leather bound bibles come in.

I learned some things after my protest last Sunday at the allegedly pro-life church where the leadership wants the state to execute women who have abortions. One of the people out there giving me grief was a kid about 10 years old. Turns out he’s one of the pastor’s sons. So yeah, OF COURSE, he has the same stupid gotcha questions and crowing, he’s his father’s son. And I feel almost no remorse in telling him that his parents and pastor are lying to him about the age of the earth. I feel *some* remorse about telling the kid “shut up, adults are talking,” however.

Oh yeah, I found out that some of that pastor and church’s followers think I’m demon possessed. Wait, what? Well, when I go out there, my inner Aspie comes out to play (as in, I feel no compunction to act in a neurotypical manner as I am not trying to impress these people*) and this really bugs them. Apparently, the “fruit of the Spirit” doesn’t include interrupting fruitless lines of questioning and challenging their basic assumptions. That’s how they judge me. *shrug*

* as opposed to the job interview I had yesterday, where I had reminders on my desk to not let my inner Aspie out to play.

Thing is they go at elaborate lengths to deny Lee what eh was. They deny that Lee supported slavery. They deny that Lee had a choice in secession.

ESPN - Bosa contrite over 2016 Kaepernick ‘clown’ tweet

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Acknowledging the irony that he will begin his NFL career with the same team that used to employ the quarterback he once called “a clown” on Twitter, new San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa expressed remorse for that post about Colin Kaepernick on Friday afternoon.

Bosa called Kaepernick a clown on Twitter in August of 2016, a tweet that was deleted in the run-up to Thursday’s draft as part of a scrubbing of potentially controversial posts from his social media.

In his introductory news conference with the Bay Area media on Friday, Bosa said that the tweet wasn’t meant to be a statement on Kaepernick’s social justice efforts and apologized.

“It wasn’t directed towards (Kaepernick’s stance),” Bosa said. “It’s not like I’m saying his stance and what he was doing, that’s not what I was calling or talking about at all. It was just a specific thing that happened and me as a young kid a thought popping in my head and boom, decided to tweet it out. Bad decision. I respect what he’s done. If it empowers anybody then he’s doing a good thing. So, I apologize for that.”

Bosa’s approach to social media came under scrutiny in the past few months for tweets like the one aimed at Kaepernick and others that garnered attention for his conservative-leaning political views and support of President Donald Trump.

Dope Pusher Oliver North is OUT at the NRA

National Rifle Association President Oliver North told NRA members on Saturday he will not be renominated president of the group following a dispute with its CEO Wayne LaPierre.

The announcement was made in a letter read Saturday during the NRA convention being held in Indianapolis, NRA officials confirmed to CNN.

North said in the letter that he hoped he would be renominated for a second term but, “I am now informed that will not happen,” according to a video of the letter being read. There was a vote scheduled for Sunday to choose the president.

Bosa is still young so he could mature but holy shit if there’s not double standards that exist in the NFL.

I did read that Bosa did his press conference by himself, without the SF team president, so that he could respond to questions about his older comments.

I was reading it’s a fight about misused millions paid to North for a show that has only coughed up a few episodes to air. RW money machine hit a speed bump. A Russian speedbump. The NRA will not be a able to re orient on gun owners and hunters for support after the Russian affair. Already only single digit membership, going down. Shallow well has no water.

This is why I want nothing to do with churches.

From 2011 to 2016, white evangelicals dramatically changed their minds about the importance of politicians’ private behavior

Back in 2016, many journalists and commentators pointed out a stunning change in how white evangelicals perceived the connection between private and public morality. In 2011, a poll conducted by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) and the Religion News Service found that 60 percent of white evangelicals believed that a public official who “commits an immoral act in their personal life” cannot still “behave ethically and fulfill their duties in their public and professional life.” But in an October 2016 poll by PRRI and the Brookings Institution — after the release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape — only 20 percent of evangelicals, answering the same question, said that private immorality meant someone could not behave ethically in public.

Have white evangelicals made an allowance only for Trump, or have they reconsidered their opinions on private and public morality more broadly? We tested this with two other versions of the same question. One starts with, “Many supporters of Donald Trump have argued,” followed by the identical statement about an elected official who commits a privately immoral act. The other harks back to the Monica Lewsinky scandal that led to Bill Clinton’s impeachment. “When he was president, many supporters of Bill Clinton argued …” To avoid the possibility of one question affecting responses to the others, respondents were randomly assigned to receive only one of the three variations: the “generic,” Trump, or Clinton version.

White evangelicals had a substantially different reaction when asked about Trump or Clinton. When primed to think about Trump, only 6 percent of them say that an elected official who acts immorally in private is incapable of being ethical in public life. But when Bill Clinton is mentioned, that rises to 27 percent — a 21-point increase.

This is why millions of people walked out of churches and they will NEVER go back!

Important data in there. Thank you.

Our parish is looking for a new priest and the diocese helped the search committee put together a survey of the congregation. I got the link just the other day so it’s not going to be done till next week but with many things like that in mind here were a couple of my answers to questions on it. Behind private for easy ignoring.

Congratulations to Nick Bosa on being picked number two in the NFL Draft. You will be a great player for years to come, maybe one of the best. Big Talent! San Francisco will embrace you but most importantly, always stay true to yourself. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

I saw this tweet earlier, but seeing it again and all I can think of is Bosa came from Ohio State University, the same college that named its track and field facilities after OSU and internationally respected great Jesse Owens.

Yes, Jesse Owens the black athlete who won four gold medals in track events at the 1936 Olympics held in Berlin much to the dismay of one Adolph Hitler who was sure his supreme Germans were going to win everything.

And here is Trump ignoring to mention a black athlete who was number one in the NFL draft to focus on Nick Bosa most likely because Trump likes some of the comments made by Bosa an admitted Trump supporter.

What a strange twist of politics and sports.
