re: #105 Wendell Zurkowitz ((slave to the waffle light))

It is not a lie because Trump does not understand how tariffs work. The tax is paid by the importer, not the exporter.

Well, you know that, and I know that: most Lizards reading this thread probably know that, but the real audience for this crap probably isn’t anybody who actually knows how tariffs work.

Like most things Trump, the actuality of programs is way less important (to the point of irrelevancy) than how they LOOK like they’re “working”, or (most importantly), how the “base” THINKS they’re working. Trump knows that the red-hatted rednecks whooping it up at his clownshow rallies are going to hear “$250 billion in tariffs on China”, and think only that it’s somehow sticking a quarter-trillion-dollar hit to the “cheating” Chinese - which they will hugely admire “tough guy” Trump for.

That most of that money will end up being paid out of the pockets of American consumers probably doesn’t occur to them. And if told, would probably just dismiss it as “librul lies” or “Trump Derangement Syndrome” or whatever BS they prefer to obviate reality with….

Yesterday, I heard the price of washers and dryers has risen an average of $100/unit. Foreign-built ones because of the tariff, and domestic-buit ones because the manufacturers decided they could raise the price without losing business.

And nobody’s thinking about moving factories back here.

When religion and politics travel in the same cart, the riders believe nothing can stand in their way. Their movements become headlong — faster and faster and faster. They put aside all thoughts of obstacles and forget the precipice does not show itself to the man in a blind rush until it’s too late.

Exactly. Instead, it’s essentially a regressive tax on the working and middle classes. The money Trump crows that China is paying into the Treasury is really coming from us, and the money he’s giving to the farmers he’s fucking over is being borrowed from China. So, we pay the tariffs AND we pay interest to China.

I’m absolutely certain that all this has been explained to him, but he’s infamously ineducable, so it doesn’t penetrate. Even if he briefly knows the truth, the wishful thinking pushes it out of the way again. I’m curious how long he actually holds onto reality before slipping back into Cloud Cuckoo Land again, or if indeed he ever really does.

I mean, this is basic - 19th- Century basic - economics: you put tariffs on imported manufactured goods to give domestic manufacturers an advantage: and on imported commodities to incentivize in-country production (or just as an income stream if there is no domestic alternative). But in 21st-Century America, those principles don’t really apply. Though, of course, as pointed out, “applicability” is like too long a word for Trump to understand.

Assuming good insurance, cataracts are almost NBD. They are so sneaky that you get a really delightful boost in vision when they’re removed. After a few years, my doc used a 2-minute laser treatment to “polish” my replacement lenses, giving another notable boost. Bottom line: I can see much better, with almost no use of reading glasses, than I could 7 years ago.

I can beat that. A friend got prescribed a certain medication for intestinal issues. I had to go pick it up for her. The script was for 30 pills or one a day for a month as many medications go.

Her insurance company would only cover 24 pills per month. You just can NOT make this shit up.

We see him try to do that on the BBC interview but Neil was having none of it.

First, if the god she believes in exists, then It’s the one who makes people suffer poor self esteem. Plus It also made a whole lot of really shitty people, who probably shouldn’t love themselves (I’m thinking one in particular. Starts with ‘T’ and rhymes with ‘taking a dump’), but who plainly DO.

Definitely recommend going into System Preference -> Trackpad and playing around with the options to fine it to your liking. I always enable “tap to click,” because the physical click of the trackpad pivots from the from top edge and often tends to only register when you click towards the bottom edge, especially as the device gets older.

I basically enable everything within the Trackpad options except I always uncheck “Scroll Direction: Natural” because that feels very unnatural to me. They made it the default out of some misguided attempt at being consistent, so that the trackpad would scroll exactly like the touchscreen on an iPhone instead of like the scroll wheel on a mouse.

And this shining star of conservatism is casually dismissed as an ‘American nitwit’ on air, rightly so.

Best thing that happened to me, medically speaking! With lens implants, I can see, and I was nearly blind from a child with astigmatism.

My worst eye is set for reading or computer distance, and the good eye for … well… distance-distance. Since that was the balance they had always had, it works perfectly.

I have Medicare and I was wondering if anyone could tell me about how much I would have to pay out if I ever get up the nerve to have the cataract surgery.

That depends on your Medicare Supplement. If in doubt, ask them. I have a good M.S., and I paid nothing out of pocket.

Got an email from Sen Durbin, and it was depressing. I don’t know how they manage to keep moving forward, with the tsunami of tsludge coming out of the administration.

My Trip to the Southern Border

Fellow Illinoisan,

Last month, I traveled to El Paso, Texas, to get a firsthand look at the situation on the southwest border. I spent time with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Officers and Agents at the Paso del Norte Port of Entry and a nearby Border Patrol Station, and met with El Paso community leaders and advocates. What I saw there will stay with me forever.

I visited what the detained migrants call a “hielera,” Spanish for icebox. It is a metal-sided detention room which the detainees complain is kept painfully cold. The sign above the door reads “Capacity: 35”. There were close to 150 men in the room. One of the women’s cells had a sign reading “Capacity: 16.” I counted about 75 women in the cell. Some mouthed the word “help” as they made eye contact through the window. Some were mothers nursing their babies.

President Trump’s fear-mongering approach to those who come to our border, many of whom are just seeking safe haven as many of our ancestors did, does not make us safer and is not representative of America or our heritage. Instead of working with El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, where the vast majority of these migrants are coming from, the President decides to cut aid that can help the violent and corrupt situations in these countries. He also has eliminated a program that allowed asylum seekers to be processed in their home countries, and not at our border.

The Trump Administration’s border policies have failed, and the President’s fixation with a wall and his non-stop attacks on Mexico have made our border less secure. My visit underscored the need for border security. In an age of drugs and terror, we need to know who and what are coming into our country. The reality is that we cannot accept everyone who wishes to come to America, and the bottom line is that we should never let anyone in our country who we know to be dangerous. But the only reliable response to our challenge is bipartisan comprehensive immigration reform - which includes smart, effective, and humane border security. What’s happening at our border isn’t a national emergency, it’s a humanitarian disaster of the President and his Administration’s own creation.

Sincerely,

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL)

NY-11 is mostly Staten Island, with just a sliver of Brooklyn.

It’s the only Red district in NYC.

Their congressman used to be Michael Grimm

On April 28, 2014, Grimm was charged by federal authorities with 20 counts of fraud, federal tax evasion, and perjury. On December 23, 2014, he pleaded guilty to a single count of felony tax fraud, and “acknowledged committing perjury, hiring illegal immigrants, and committing wire fraud”. After initially vowing to retain his seat, Grimm announced on December 30, 2014, that he would resign from Congress effective January 5, 2015. On May 5, 2015, Daniel M. Donovan, Jr. won the special election to replace Grimm. On July 17, 2015, Grimm was sentenced to eight months in prison for tax evasion.

Also, he’s the guy who threatened to throw a reporter over the balcony in the capitol because he didn’t like a question the guy had asked him.

In today’s episode of Unattainable Objects of Desire - the legendary Nacho Banos of Spain, the world’s foremost authority on the early Fender ‘Blackguard’ Telecasters, an amazing luthier and a pretty good player to boot, has announced that he’s releasing a group of guitars for sale.

Nachoguitars Vol 1 Annie

Now, there are boutique guitars, there are high-end boutique guitars, and then there are Nacho’s guitars. Once he announces that he has guitars for sale, they sell out in a matter of minutes, despite their, umm, extravagant cost. The one in the video above will probably sell for about $35K.

But these guitars are considered the most detailed and best-built aged Fender replicas on the planet. I’ll consider myself lucky if I get to see one in person someday.

- McGahn told Mueller about both those things

- Mueller put it in his report.
- He would have charged Trump with obstruction of justice but for the DOJ guideline. (An opinion/memo, not a law or reg)

- After report was released, Trump asked McGahn to say what Trump did was not obstruction of justice. (He wouldnt/didn’t)

That insurance stance is the stupidest thing I’ve heard in months. We need first-world healthcare provisions.

The VA tells me I have creeping cataracts. For now they say surgical intervention is not necessary, but they will “keep an eye on them.”

At the point surgery is necessary, they will schedule the required examinations and procedures. Cost to me, $0.

I got a letter from the hospital in Scottsbluff telling me they’d forwarded my mammogram results to the VA (I already knew that), and that my bill is $0. (The VA paid for it.)

There is no reason in this country every person cannot have care without the intervention and profit-skimming of insurance companies, except for capitalist greed.

If you’re getting good surveillance, the doc will probably recommend the simple surgery before you even feel the need. Then when it’s done you’ll be shocked by the improvement.

Assuming good insurance, cataracts are almost NBD. They are so sneaky that you get a really delightful boost in vision when they’re removed. After a few years, my doc used a 2-minute laser treatment to “polish” my replacement lenses, giving another notable boost. Bottom line: I can see much better, with almost no use of reading glasses, than I could 7 years ago.

From the Nebraska Democratic Party:

Dear Fellow Democrat:
Nebraska Democrats won big in the Lincoln City elections on Tuesday. We welcome Madame Mayor Leirion Gaylor Baird along with City Council Members Raybould, Bowers and Ward and School Board Members Mumgaard and Rauner. Democrats are leading at all levels of government in Lincoln to build on the strong legacy of Mayor Beutler.

Donate to keep building on this momentum for more wins in 2020.

Lincoln voters rejected the hate-filled rhetoric and campaigning of the Republican Party. In fact, we replaced an anti-LGBT Council Member with the first openly gay City Council Member James Michael Bowers.
The NDP worked hand and hand with the Lancaster County Party and the candidates for a coordinated campaign and Get Out The Vote effort.

This was an all-hands-on-deck campaign. Together, Democrats knocked on 13,945 doors, made 204,064 phone calls, wrote 775 postcards and sent 39,727 texts. We increased the number of people voting by mail by sending out 62,050 Vote-By-Mail applications and Voter Guides.

These combined efforts are what got people over the finish line with record numbers of voters.

Democrats outperformed our voter registration numbers and we only did this because we had the resources to compete.

Keep the NDP in the game for the 2020 cycle by donating today.

Your donation will help fund our successful Block Captain program and help us hire a Rural Organizer to rebuild and reconnect with voters all across the state.

We stand proud as a party that is competing everywhere. We are ready for a competitive 2020 election cycle where we run on big ideas and strong values. Thank you for standing with us.

Yours in Democratic Service,

Jane Kleeb, NDP Chair

Afternoon Read (Goes to Juanita Jean’s, the World’s Most Dangerous Beauty Salon)

The New York Times has an amazing article about a woman who stopped and rendered aid to three central American migrants on the Texas border. She is Teresa Todd and she is the elected county attorney of Jeff Davis County.

Three teenagers flagged her down and she stopped to help. It was two young men and their sister. The sister was on the verge of death and the young men were not much better.

(NYT article linked at JJ’s, more at the link)

She was arrested for transporting undocumented immigrants.

She spent 45 minutes in a holding cell that night and it appears they are going to charge her with transporting undocumented people. They confiscated her cell phone and have put her on alert. It’s a long story but it is worth your time to read.

Here’s my question: If the Super DeLux Brand Christians can use their deeply held beliefs to be mean to gay people, why can’t I use my deeply held regular sinner Christian beliefs to be good to all people? I never heard of Jesus saying to be mean and judgmental to gay people, but he was pretty damn clear on being a Good Samaritan.

It just pisses me off that we’ve let them steal our country, our religion, and our common decency. They are a bunch of money hungry charlatans and some mullet wearing thugs who don’t begin to understand the teachings of Jesus or Thomas Jefferson. Or they do just don’t damn care.

I don’t really care about their faith. Their faith drives their hate. I personally don’t go in for the “no true religion” fallacy.

I’m all for secular repentance. I’m also convinced they’ll never do it (just like when I bash on people like Jennifer Rubin - the first step of repentance is admitting you were wrong - she won’t do it, they won’t do it - they think Trump is an aberration, not their policies without the dog whistles).

Other countries have already banned the practice (Belgium), restricted them (China), or are studying the issue (Sweden). Belgium’s government banned them as a violation of gaming laws.

Oh, if loot boxes were the worst sin in modern gaming. It’s the proverbial tip of the iceberg when it comes to ways that game companies are robbing gamers blind.

Teens prefer harm reduction messaging on substance use (Goes to the University of British Columbia)

A joint study by the University of British Columbia and the University of Calgary finds that teenagers find harm reduction messaging on drugs more effective than abstinence messaging.

Harm reduction treats the world as it is, not as wingnuts would have it.

Mobile? That’s funny. Somehow I, mother and father, and younger sister, on the Verizon network, were grandfathered into an unlimited data plan on a family share basis *years ago.* Years ago. Anyhoo, we still have unlimited data, our phone broker at CostCo was like “WTF! How’d you do this?” My folks got in very early I guess, before the mobile data explosion occurred, or some such shit.

I have little use for a cell phone since we don’t have cell service here, but I have a cheap inexpensive plastic flip phone registered with TracFone which I use when I’m on a trip.

So an old Cajun goes into a bar with his pet alligator. The bartender tells he has to get it out of there, they cannot allow dangerous animals.

He demonstrates how docile it is by setting it on the bar, placing his member in its mouth and hitting it on the head with a bottle. The alligator does not respond.

Too much GTA.

On Friday afternoon, police and Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies began chasing a black Toyota Prius in Downey, southeast of Los Angeles.
The high-speed chase stretched along a freeway and surface streets, during which video showed a passenger in a black T-shirt lean halfway out of the front passenger’s window and fire two-handed at pursuing patrol cars.Video showed the man using a distinctive long-barreled revolver strikingly similar to one that was used in the store killing.
The chase ended at about 3 p.m. in neighboring Vernon when traffic trapped the car and the passenger again fired. A car behind the Prius managed to back away, and police who pulled up in the next lane riddled the Prius with gunfire, shattering windows.
A short time later, a bloodied woman driver got out and surrendered. There was no immediate word on her condition.
The street near a railroad track was emptied, and sheriff’s SWAT teams were called in. Two armored vehicles blocked in the Prius.
During a standoff that lasted more than an hour, authorities rolled a robot up to the open driver’s door to peer inside the car and later fired two flash-bang grenades into the vehicle.
When the man inside didn’t get out, a police dog was sent in to pull at him. Only then did SWAT members drag the motionless man from the car.

The good news is that you can buy an adaptor for the “Thunderbolt” (USB 3) port so as to able to use a regular (rectangular) USB plug on anything so equipped.

The bad news (unsurprisingly) is that you HAVE to either buy the adaptor, or else replace all your existing devices with USB 3-compatible ports…..

Keep that in mind as you ponder state Sen. Martin Sandoval’s plan to raise money for transportation funding in Illinois. The Chicago Democrat’s bill includes proposals to more than double the gas tax to 44 cents a gallon, raise the driver’s license fee to $60 and the standard vehicle registration fee to $148 … and raise the yearly registration fee for electric vehicles from the current $17.50 to $1,000.

That’s right, $1,000. That’s a 5,614 percent increase. And it’s nearly seven times more than the proposed fee for gas-powered vehicles. Sandoval’s thinking: Electric vehicle owners don’t pay a gas tax, so his stratospheric jump in the electric vehicle registration would make those car owners pay their fair share.

What Sandoval’s not thinking about: The massive broadside that his fee would deliver to the electric vehicle market and electric vehicle owners. Far fewer people likely would buy electric vehicles in this state, and people who own them likely would want to unload their EVs.

It really makes sense when you find out he’s the recipient of a lot of $$$$ from the car dealer’s association, who is constantly trying squash Tesla and their sales model.

Isn’t road repair funded by local gasoline taxes? As we transition to other types of vehicles, states will have to figure out how to replace these revenues. Electric vehicles are currently not paying their fair share.

That is reasonable, but the point of the ridiculous hike in registration fees for electric vehicles is to strangle them in the cradle rather than to address issues of transition.

They are supposed to be. But just like how the toll roads were only supposed to be temporary to fund road repairs, the state sold them off to private companies, and 60 years later, here we are.

The good news is that you can buy an adaptor for the “Thunderbolt” (USB 3) port so as to able to use a regular (rectangular) USB plug on anything so equipped.

The bad news (unsurprisingly) is that you HAVE to either buy the adaptor, or else replace all your existing devices with USB 3-compatible ports…..

The gas tax in Texas is 20c per gallon. Mine does about 10 gallons per week, so, $2/wk, which works out to $100/year.

“…The company said it will continue to attempt to sell “all of its assets” and that the company expects its three PRB mines “will continue normal operations throughout the process.”

“…What that means for the more than 1,250 employees at Cloud Peak’s three PRB mines — Cordero Rojo and Antelope in Wyoming and Spring Creek in Montana — is that for now, their jobs are safe, said Robert Godby, director of the Center for Energy, Economics and Public Policy at the University of Wyoming.

“The good news is, at least in the short term, is the mines are going to continue operating as best they can,” he said.”

Welcome to Mac World!

Since everyone + dog is moving to USB-C connectors this was inevitable.
However, you do have to pay attention to the markings on a USB-C port for notebooks - most (if not all of them) will have a lightning bolt to indicate that the port is required for connecting USB-C chargers or other USB-C devices that will provide sufficient current to kick over the charging function.
Since all current generation mobile devices have/are moving to USB-C, we can see that the end of microUSB (list like miniUSB) is neigh.

Both my Galaxy S8+ and my HP Elite x3 use USB-C. ‘tis a shame that Microsoft couldn’t make the case that their Windows Phone was just as usable as either Android or iOS, especially given that they had a head-start with Windows Mobile back in the mid-2000’s - I loved their Voice Commander, which would announce who is calling you if their name was in the Outlook directory, and Windows Phone 7 came out, it was surprising that it’s Bluetooth interface would kick on and tell you if you had an SMS message, even though the car’s native Bluetooth stack wouldn’t.

Isn’t the problem that the gas tax has not kept up with inflation? Like the sales tax, the gas tax is a regressive tax — but it can be worse than the sales tax. After all, in general, people who are less affluent find themselves with vehicles that have worse mileage, and therefore are likely to be purchasing more gasoline and therefore contributing disproportionately more to repair roads

It may just prove that more services need to be funded through income taxes. And some improved form of wealth tax. The estate tax needs to be revisited so that it would do a better job of taxing wealth, especially wealth concealed in trusts. Trump’s taxes need to be reviewed carefully so that we can design a system that would not permit the wealthy to avoid taxation. Of course if Trump actually has a negative net worth — and has had one for decades — we need to step back and repair our economic system to prevent frauds from stealing on a grand scale.
