Iran announces partial withdrawal from nuclear deal.

Precisely what Bolton and Booby Nincompoopo want so they can go to war…

Iran will announce its partial withdrawal from the nuclear deal signed with world powers, a year after Donald Trump pulled out of the agreement signed in 2015, Tehran has announced.

Wednesday’s “reciprocal measures” will be formally conveyed to ambassadors to countries remaining inside the deal - France, Britain, Germany, China and Russia. Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will separately set out the technical and legal details in a letter to the EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini.

Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has been under intense domestic political pressure to produce some kind of countermeasure following the US withdrawal.

Tehran has lost patience with Europe’s efforts to create a new viable financial mechanism that would allow European firms to continue trading items such as medicines and humanitarian goods with Iran and circumvent US secondary sanctions.

Matt Oswalt:
Richard Pryor could barely spend $30 million in 30 days even with the help of John Candy and a huge coke addiction

That would be a higher rate of loss than Trump: 1 million a day translates to 365 million a year and then to 3.65 million in 10 years, which does exceed Trump’s outsized billion dollar loss over that period, assuming it’s a real loss and not some illegal tax manipulation that is concealing ill-gotten gains over that same period.

Got massively CL’d on the last thread (which I think may be a first for me, praise Aminah, PBUH…)

Anyway - on the topic of the soon-to-be-former New Orleans Times-Picayune…

The T-P situation is way more complicated than some of the simplistic reporting out there. The T-P didn’t sell out/fold because nobody in New Orleans wanted to read a newspaper. It failed because people in NOLA *did* want to read a daily newspaper and the T-P’s ownership bet that they didn’t. A few years ago, the Newhouse ownership radically trimmed back the T-P, printing only three days a week and going digital-only on other days. In most markets these days, you get away with that because you have no competition.

In NOLA, though, there was competition. The Baton Rouge paper, the Advocate, got a new owner who aggressively targeted New Orleans, starting a new edition there that printed and home delivered seven days a week. Turned out readers wanted that, and they supported the New Orleans Advocate pretty strongly - so much so, in fact, that it was the Advocate that ended up buying out the weakened T-P. But again, the T-P was weakened because its out-of-town ownership made the wrong bet against people still wanting print. Print actually won. And it’s likely that the Advocate will absorb at least some of the T-P’s remaining journalists once the sale closes and they’re able to do so.

The timeline provided shows something that I didn’t know because the media hasn’t covered it. While they’ve made a big deal about how the DOJ allowed a handful of Dems the chance to see the “less-redacted” version of the Report, they haven’t reported that one of the DOJ’s terms for doing so is they cannot discuss anything seen in the report with any other member of Congress, even those with the necessary security clearance.

I get the frustration with mass murders. We had the Westroads Mall mass murder in Omaha in 2007, the deadliest mass-murder in Nebraska in sixty years (my wife and I didn’t live here at the time, we were in Oklahoma).

en.wikipedia.org

I still call Michigan home (since that’s where I mostly grew up, double entendre intended). Only a few miles south of where I grew up was the deadliest mass-murder in a school (the Bath School Bombing in 1927, which still stands as the worst in the USA).

Getting rid of the II Amendment won’t fix this. If the II Amendment is not in place, then states will get to write their own laws without federal oversight.

What’s needed is to enforce federal laws and authority which the II Amendment grants. Everything from getting rid of that moronic talking point about the first clause being a preamble or something with no force, to repealing the law which says the “militia is every able-bodied male aged 17-45.”

The US human space program is an example of poor follow-through. We could have leveraged our landing on the Moon for ongoing commercial and scientific purposes, even cooperated with other nations to make it possible. We could have re-engineered and improved the Space Shuttles to maintain our ability to ferry people and cargo into LEO. But, without the support of Congress and the White House, NASA would never have the budget to continue such activities. Trump’s “Space Force” is a total joke, meanwhile. It’s just a cheap ploy to give Trump an excuse to slap his name on something. It’ll never get funding, and will soon be forgotten along with all his other great initiatives, like his Greatest Health Care Plan Evah.

A couple years ago, the other NRA (the National Restaurant Association) held its annual convention here in Omaha.

That NRA stands behind restaurateurs who choose to prohibit open carry in their places of business.

Nebraska, like Texas, is an open-carry state. Unlike Texas, we don’t have nutbars parading around with rifles which look like they came out of a fantasy war magazine.

Open Carry Texas decided it was going to picket the sane NRA in Omaha, and tried to get a whole lot of local people in Nebraska and Iowa to show up for their picket.

No local people at all showed up. It was just four or five nutbars from Texas being studiously ignored by people here and being closely watched by the police.

Other than police officers, I have only ever seen people open carry firearms around here if they were out hunting, and only one time in the general store here in town (a rancher who’d come in from work to get some drinks for his workers and immediately left after his purchase).

My wife uses Metformin. For now, CHAMPUS pays for that. I imagine if the company which manufacturers that could get away with it, they’d do the same as has been done with insulin for type 1 diabetics.

Driving to Canada from here is a long haul, 656 miles to the border with Saskatchewan.

They have a camping trailer (that hasn’t left the driveway, AFAIK) and a SUV to pull it, so it would be a long haul for them, too, but maybe a fun one.

Trouble is, they have two dogs and four cats, plus a coop full of chickens, so I’m not sure they’re up for long haul travels atm.

Former creative director for Netflix puts water in a can, calls it punk and raises $1.6 million in funding (CNBC)

Canned water brand Liquid Death claims to have a punk sensibility, but it’s unlikely to scream “anarchy.” Capitalism might be more appropriate.

The start-up just raised $1.6 million in seed funding, thanks to its marketing expertise. From its name to the melted skull on the front of the can, Liquid Death sells itself as the punk option for bottled water drinkers, saying it will “murder your thirst.”

“We started Liquid Death with the diabolical plan to completely obliterate bottled water marketing cliches by taking the world’s healthiest beverage and making it just as funny and stupid and entertaining as the unhealthy brands across energy drinks, soda and beer,” the company says on its website.

Another thing I’m considering. I’ve only owned Apple mobile devices (an iPhone 4S, an iPhone Xr, and an iPad 2) but never a computer computer. All the desktops and laptops I’ve owned used some form of Windows as the OS. I’m wondering if the learning curve for the Mac OS is steep? I’ve used Macs before, but never as my personal computer.

As an iPhone/iPad lover and a Windows user I can only say this… The commands you use on Mac OS **SUCK** and learning and using them is very hard. An example is: taking a screenshot requires like a FOUR FINGER command which makes your fingers feel like they’re playing Twister.

I still have a Mac Air but literally never use it.

Precisely. Nixon had weathered months of investigations and bruising court rulings, such that the public didn’t feel impeachment was warranted. But after a few weeks of impeachment hearings, the GOP was convinced that the DNC had the votes to impeach and possibly remove him from office.

Trump’s simultaneously claiming it’s fake news, and confirming that he took massive and exaggerated losses to minimize his tax burden.

Except that he didn’t just minimize his tax burden.

He took NOLs for more than a decade and took more losses as an individual taxpayer than just about every other American during that period. The IRS keeps those stats, and it found that Trump repeatedly claimed the most losses among high income earners. That’s not normal.

And now that he’s admitting that he potentially exaggerated those losses, the IRS could open civil fraud investigation into those old returns (because there’s no actual SOL on civil tax fraud; criminal tax fraud does have a SOL, however).

Everything Trump does is a scam, and even when he tries to cover for one scam, he reveals others.

I still call Michigan home (since that’s where I mostly grew up, double entendre intended). Only a few miles south of where I grew up was the deadliest mass-murder in a school (the Bath School Bombing in 1927, which still stands as the worst in the USA).

Getting rid of the II Amendment won’t fix this. If the II Amendment is not in place, then states will get to write their own laws without federal oversight.

What’s needed is to enforce federal laws and authority which the II Amendment grants. Everything from getting rid of that moronic talking point about the first clause being a preamble or something with no force, to repealing the law which says the “militia is every able-bodied male aged 17-45.”

Oh, King Orange will go apeshit all right, but not “explaining” anything: Donald Trump has (AFAICT) never explained anything away in his life - certainly not in his belated political career: his reaction to any embarrassing (even to the point of criminal) revelations will likely be his usual one: very loud, very public denunciations of “FAKE NEWS!!”, “VENDETTA!!” “WITCH HUNT!!!!” , etc.: frantic whattaboutism: “CROOKED HILLARY!!! CROOKED DEMS!!!” and probably another red-hat rally in which he will lard his denunciatory rhetoric with taking personal credit for every “positive” thing everywhere in the whole country. On the (disgustingly and disgracefully accurate) assumption that his “base” won’t care.

Caught the first episode of Chernobyl and the chaos we see among the plant workers, the firemen showing up, and the bureaucrats ignoring any evidence suggesting a massive failure and explosion of the core mirrors what actually happened.

The designers of the reactors claimed that the RBMK couldn’t explode, and yet it did because of known defects that they refused to share with nuclear plant operators.

Oh, and the dosimeters all maxed out, which means that no one knew exactly how much radiation they got hit with. It was a shitshow from the get-go, including when they changed the test parameters that started the chain events that led to the explosion. Low power situation made the reactor even more unstable. Adding control rods actually caused a spike in output; and by the time they tried to correct; it blew up.

Attorney General William P. Barr released a redacted version of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report on Russian interference in the 2016 election on April 18. But House Democrats subpoenaed the underlying evidence and the full report in their investigation into whether President Trump obstructed justice.

The White House’s latest move comes shortly before the House Judiciary Committee plans to begin contempt proceedings against Barr for failing to provide the full, unredacted report to Congress.

Part of the Nadler statement released yesterday included a timeline about efforts to “negotiate” with the DOJ to see the full report. The House Judiciary Committee floated the offer of making the full report with all but the grand jury info unredacted to the full Congress (instead of a select few), removing the DOJ’s restriction that any persons who read the report could not discuss such with other members of Congress (even those with proper clearance), and that Barr file a court order to release the grand jury information to Congress (which is keeping with DOJ precedent).

So anybody that tells you that Nadler is demanding Barr break the law by making the full report public is lying their ass off or a total idiot (or, if a wingnut, both).

Another part of NYC radio history is going away - iconic pop station WPLJ is shutting down.

The longstanding New York radio station that for nearly 50 years has sent pop and rock hits across the Hudson River and broadcast throughout North and Central New Jersey announced Wednesday it will cease operation May 31. The Cumulus Media-owned station was sold to Christian broadcaster Educational Media Foundation in February, and the new Christian contemporary station K-Love (WKLV) will take over the 95.5 channel June 1, RadioInsight reports.

Not for nothin’, but a Christian Contemporary station in New York City is going to go over like a fart in an elevator. They’ll be changing formats within a year, or risk becoming one of the biggest revenue losers in NYC radio history.

- apparently it wasnt his money - loans, bankruptcies, and investors took the hits while he skimmed off the top
- you have to first calculate how much tax he should have paid and didnt to determine it’s a ‘drop in the bucket’
- if someone else got the job, talk to the employers that hired them, further, that’s not stealing, and further further, they paid taxes (unless their employers cheated the system)

Another exhibit in whom are the real snowflakes, motherfuckers. See, I have the opposite response. If I know a foreign language, I’m curious about where the person is from. I attended a baseball game a few years back with my SiL’s sister and her husband. They’re from Peru and El Salvador respectively. Ahead of us was a group of other Spanish speakers so I asked my SiL’s brotehr in law if he could tell where they were from. He guessed the DR or Puerto Rico, a pretty reasonable bet IMO since he’s great with language and the DR and PR are big baseball playing places. Turned out they were from the DR and we ended up really enjoying the game together and I really liked their enthusiasm for baseball. And sometimes I don’t know the language at all and I’m curious. And then there’s last summer when I was in the part of Slovakia where my mom’s maternal grandparents were from so being able to hear the people there was in a way as close to being able to hear my mom’s grandparents talk. Plus my Dad has a long ago great great grandmother who only spoke Irish and I love that. After all that happened in Ireland to eradicate the Irish language, third Grand Nana was speaking it well into the 20th century in Pittsburgh.

Reynolds Airpark has one runway, the rest is covered in new Kia vehicles. It isn’t owned by the city. The whole industrial park area (piers & former airfield) is privately owned. I just don’t see where they move the plane to during the investigation. I guess they can place it ashore next to the piers and tent it. To move it anyhwere else they’d need to remove the wings, and I question if the TSB want to disassemble the plane prior to inspecting

He does not care a bit about that. They believe that God gave them that land to do as they please with, and that God has empowered them to defend it with all means at their disposal.

Great song! Thanks for posting.

Something about that song was bugging, or tugging at, me.

Obviously being from Buenos Aires, my first thought was it being a tango group. Particularly with the use of Milonga, a phrase associated with Argentina Tango dance.

I just realized that the song was done in the Portuguese Neuvo Fado style.

Here’s another song in that style. This one always impressed me as being about what is important in life

Cristina Branco - Locais

From the liner notes (second half of the song):

The smoke of the open hearth
rises over the streets
and invites one to come in
and sit at the hearty table

be thanked for sharing
the little that you posses
honor lies in the truth
of the people who live here

re: #440 Backwoods_Sleuth

in a rational world, that’d be another impeachment article for corruption.

Part of me would really love to see like 25-30 articles of impeachment pass the House. Just to force every Republican in Congress to vote on 2-3 dozen instances of blatant illegalities. Force them to say that all of this is acceptable.

I wonder if it got to that point if the sheer weight of the charges would be enough to get a conviction on just one of them. Because, really, that’s all we need.

Just as planned. It’s all about the criminalization of women and their very existence.

Two weeks. Two students killed tackling shooters in their classrooms.

The families of Kendrick Castillo and Riley Howell should be planning for their futures, not funerals.

This is devastating. Our leaders owe it to them to take action.
