My First CL

For Darth.

“Heaven goes by favor; if it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.”

This is my favorite quote of Mark Twain. I want it to be true. I want there to be heaven for dogs. Dogs deserve paradise and we don’t. But I just don’t know.

One love,

A Lizard lost a dear family member.

There has to be hundreds of pictures of Banjo posted at LGF. He was one of us. Thank you darthstar for sharing his ocean-going ball-chasing red-International-pickup-guard/wind machine. I cry a tear of sorrow, and I rejoice that Banjo got to, well, be Banjo.

So I went out today to Ap*l*g** Church and damn if they didn’t love bomb me. They had a chair sitting outside waiting for me. They brought me ice water and iced tea (unsweetened). One little girl gave me a note. Holy crap, and they wondered why I called them a cult????

I did get to explain to a girl of about 11 what “unconstitutional” meant, though and give an example. She said that Arizona still has a law on the books making abortion illegal. I noted that Roe v. Wade made that law unconstitutional, even if it was still on the books. I proceeded to give her the example of Loving v. Virginia, where states in a big chunk in the USA made it illegal for whites and blacks not to marry. This was declared unconstitutional in 1967. I then noted that some states didn’t get rid of their anti-miscegenation (and yeah, I explained what that meant) statutes until the last decade. I concluded with, at present, the Arizona law is unconstitutional. That does not mean that abortion will be banned if Roe is overturned. I noted that the states of California and Kansas (oh yes, I mentioned KS) have said abortion is a right under their state constitutions.

The conversations weren’t nearly as fraught as in previous weeks, because an unhappy foster kid forced to go to church pretty much sucked all the air out of the room with an abstruse discussion of “where do you get your morals from,” a discussion I completely hate with the heat of a billion suns. I was OK with that. I did get to point out to the kiddies that God wasn’t always against killing the unborn, why he told Joshua to genocidally wipe out Canaan*. A parent had to run in and do damage control—“those were evil people passing their children through the fire to Molech”—but the point was made.

* For the record, I think the book of Joshua is a crapton of wishful thinking. I don’t believe, in all the excavating that has been done in the land that used to be Canaan, that signs of massacres have been turned up. Not saying they can’t turn up, but we know from executing the ruins of Jericho that it was uninhabited in the period where the book of Joshua says the walls fell down. It’s not that people didn’t do crazy, crazy things in their service of their gods, however. I read recently about a Peruvian mass grave dating from between 1400-1450, where the Chimu people sacrificed 140 children and 200 llamas. It’s not understood why, but it’s thought that it might have occurred due to years of bad weather conditions. news.nationalgeographic.com

Just wanted to add my condolences to the ones here for darthstar. I loved all the photos and stories about Rango. Such a sweet boy. It’s just crazy how they leave a hole in our hearts shaped just like them when they leave us. I think we have dogs and cats to remind us that love is always possible if we choose it. Plus the friendship, there’s not a lot of things better than that, seriously.

I had to say goodbye to my Abby in September. It hurts still, all the time. And yet this morning I found my self on the county animal shelter’s site looking at dogs for the first time since then. Because life without a dog just isn’t my normal. Big hugs to you.

I’m sure this diary written by Markos himself will go well with some people there:

Bernie Sanders isn’t any more popular than ‘generic Democrat’:

We’ve been tracking the approval ratings of several key Democrats over the past several years at Civiqs. It’s not data we generally make public, but I’ll try to surface some of this when interesting stuff happens.

For example, it turns out that Bernie Sanders—protected by Republicans and Russians seeking to damage Hillary Clinton in 2015-16—now looks like a pretty generic Democrat once those protections are removed.

While it’s been a while since he’s been as popular with the general public as some seem to think (and it’s not just us seeing that decline in his numbers), his popularity took a real dive the day after the 2018 elections. Once he was seen as a presidential candidate, particularly in this crowded field with several great candidates, his numbers tanked.
A big chunk of that decline has come from independents (from 46-42 approvals the day before the election, to 35-50 today), not sure why that might be. What is probably easier to explain is his marked decline among Democrats:

(What he shows here isn’t opening in the work version of my browser.)

Now I know how people feel about Sanders, so I don’t think we need to rehash that since this isn’t about something he said or did. But, outside of the blogosphere, he’s not some mystical figure. We have to watch our own feedback loop, and make sure we don’t succumb to epistemic closure.

It’s not. Same thing with most immigration visas. There’s a reason why illegal immigration happens and it’s because unlike when most new immigrants were white, it’s more pricey.

further to this
- there is a large increase in the number of people seeking asylum over years past
- a fair point of view is that the ‘system’ wasn’t necessarily designed to handle these much larger numbers, nor did it adapt quickly enough

that doesnt change the fact that more people are coming here because

Exactly on all counts. We do need immigration reform but we need to be doing policies that are as opposite of what Trump/Miller want. The fundamental truth is this. People want to come here and despite what Trump says, we’re not full. In fact, the most sparsely populated parts of the country are the parts that should be welcoming immigrants but they choose to be threatened by it.

And quite frankly it’s the actions of a monster. He wrote our Declaration of Independence but Jefferson the man was quite honestly an awful person. And his inability to live his own life in accordance with what he wrote is as much if not more history than the words he wrote since slavery did in fact outlive him and the Founders.

They’re called slaves. Hennings was a slave. Period. Her “agreement” was that Jefferson wouldn’t treat her worse in “exchange” for getting being available for sex. That’s still slavery.

I hate saying that as a Virginian because we’re taught about Jefferson and Washington almost as secular saints but what Jefferson and other slave owners did to those women were the actions of a sexual abuser. The same things that horrified us about Ariel Castro. Now you still can discuss their contribution to our nation’s founding but the contradictions between what they wrote and how they actually lived their lives is history.

A brief article about federal Judge Damon Keith, who died Sunday. It includes a link to the Detroit News for his full obituary. Judge Keith was ninety-six.

Judge Keith was appointed to the federal bench by President Johnson, after training under Thurgood Marshall. He was the grandson of slaves, and had a major impact on court decisions in the Civil Rights Era.

His last decision was last week (the ruling that chalking tires on cars for parking tickets is a violation of constitutional rights).

Barr spokesperson: “Members of Congress should be the ones doing the questioning. He remains happy to engage with members on their questions regarding the Mueller report”

“Voluntary slaves?” There ain’t no such thing.

Lost causers will do anything to escape the immorality of slavery and try to cast it as rectitude.

I agree with the poster above who said we should call those statues across Dixie “rapist statues.” Let ‘em defend that.

Lost Causers know their world will disintegrate completely if the underlying myth collapses. They are going to cling to it for all they are worth.

My mother considers the first manned Moon landing to be a birthday present from NASA to her.

My older brother took part in a contest to guess the day (I forget how far in advance it was held). He guessed his birthday, July 18. *insert Maxwell Smart ‘missed it by that much’ gif*

The phrase you need to remind that shit bird of is “yelling fire in a crowded theater”.
EVERY right has a limit. [4,8]chan are far beyond it and need to be shut down.

The best thing to do would be to find out who is providing DNS & hosting services for these scum and flood them with emails until they’re shut down permanently like Der Stormer was.

Like women in prison who get pregnant, and the guard swears there was no coercion, that it was totally voluntary on her part. As if.
