re: #37 Backwoods_Sleuth

Realtors in the NYC metro area will be more than happy to tell Trump what they think of his SALT changes and the mortgage interest deduction limits.

Oh, and the fact that the interest rates are stuck at the current levels shows that the economy is weaker than Trump would ever care to admit. That he’s trying to keep them where they are or lower, shows that he knows the economy is this close to the precipice.

Low interest rates are not inducing more real estate sales.

The problem is that people are still overextended and a host of other factors - student loans, medical costs, etc., and the GOP solution to all of this is: inherit your wealth because we wont tax it and…. bootstraps (but only if you’re a white guy).

re: #32 Eclectic Cyborg

Question: Anyone know how good the GOP chances are of taking back the House next year?

I don’t know, but the districts will remain the same until 2022 (well, outside of the areas that SCOTUS allows to be even MORE gerrymandered for Rs because they were districted by nonpartisan committees, not the R-controlled legislatures “as USCONST demands”, in the early part of the decade).

So it all comes down to who wins those districts presidentially, because ticket-splitting is mainly becoming a thing of the past.

Although I do fear that our guy (or hopefully girl!) will have smaller coattails should they win than Trump will if he does.

NAFTA, despite all its critics, has been a general boom for most all of the economy (as have most free trade agreements we’ve entered in the last quarter century). It’s one of the major factors that allowed our economy to transition from being manufacturing-based to service-based.

Would lean towards that opinion as well. Never say never, obviously, but I can’t see what the Dem House Caucus might have done (or be doing) that would sour their constituents on them. And it’s not like Trump is getting better or that any GOP candidate feels like they can buck Trump and survive a primary. If anything, we might see more extreme GOP House candidates in ‘20. Can’t see how that would bode well for the GOP.

Ugh, my MFA is all screwed up, so if I’m not present over the weekend, that’s the reason why. I can’t get the MFA set up on my new phone and I can’t find the emails/info needed to set it up.

But in the process of trying to find that information, I came across a page I wrote back in 2013 that’s as relevant now as it was back then.

The GOP Long War.

President Barack Obama won reelection in 2012, but that hasn’t stopped the GOP from blocking the President’s social agenda at every turn. In turn, Democrats have largely blocked the GOP war on women at the federal level, and just this past week a federal judge ruled that day-after pills must be made available over the counter.

Gov. Sam Brownback, a former US Senator from Kansas, gave the GOP weekly address this week, and he identified how the GOP intends to carry out its misogynistic and brazen assault on abortion rights and the overall social agenda.

If they can’t do it at the federal level, they’ll roll back the rights at the state level.

That’s exactly what they’re doing.

Question: Anyone know how good the GOP chances are of taking back the House next year?

re: #36 Belafon

0 actually. And I would bet on that.

I wouldn’t say it’s “zero” but it’s probably pretty close to zero. They’d have to pick up 18 seats in a presidential year in which they are defending a widely and historically unpopular president. Assuming that the Democrats don’t decide to nominate Abe SimpsonBernie Sanders and the onion on his belt, they should have the advantage up and down the ballot.

In other words, it’s all about turnout. If Democrats can turn out even more voters than they did in 2018, they should be able to hold the House, and possibly expand their majority, along with picking up the White House. The question will remain the Senate. While Republicans are defending a lot of seats, a lot of those seats aren’t necessarily “easy” wins for Democrats. And even if they do win the Senate, some of those new Senators are going to be much closer to the center or even right than what a lot of activists will prefer.

I make this on a regular rota of meals here, and it really is just about 20 minutes, including prep time.
I use no added salt, and Kikoman’s low-sodium soy sauce. A fist-sized chunk of top sirloin roast sliced appropriately for the dish and fresh broccoli. Served over basmati rice (riced cauliflower works just as well for the keto folks).

yum, yum, yum.

Trump takes war on abortion worldwide as policy cuts off funds

The Trump administration has taken its war on abortion worldwide, cutting off all funding to any overseas organisation or clinic that will not agree to a complete ban on even discussing it.

The Mexico City policy, dubbed the “global gag” by its critics, denies US federal funds to any organisation involved in providing abortion services overseas or counselling women about them. It was instituted by the then US president Ronald Reagan and has been revoked by every Democrat and reinstated by every Republican president since.

But, under Trump, the net has been thrown wider and pulled tighter than ever. Sexual health organisations have said women will die as a consequence as they pursue dangerous DIY solutions or “back street” abortions instead.

In March, the US extended the gag, stating that any organisation counselling women on abortion and using funds from elsewhere - even from its own government or a donor in another country - will no longer be eligible for any US funding. The diktat applies to all global health organisations. HIV and children’s charities must sign up to the pledge, alongside those running sexual and reproductive health clinics.

Just got back from the VA. The nurse practitioner was hoping to get out of there and back here (she lives across the street from me) before the heavy weather hit Sidney. (Narrator: She didn’t.)

She ordered a whole bunch of hormone tests for me based on medical recommendations for my condition. (She didn’t order a pregnancy test though.)

The weather is rapidly going to hell in a handbasket … tornado warnings now popping up across the state. We’re under a thunderstorm watch, with severe thunderstorms to our south in Sidney and southwest in Sterling.

Did it change anything? No. Radiation was still at around 20,000 R/h (200 Sv/h = 200,000 mSv/h) in the worst hit areas, and the nature of the accident was still an
open core breach and meltdown.

I’m going out on a limb and making a prediction.

There’s been a lot of noise lately about the missing Trump-Russia counter-intel probe. I believe such a probe is being conducted by the FBI. Probably by a super-duper, secret FBI Task Force.

First of all, all the evidence so far indicates that such a probe would be mandated given what we now know.

Second, what we know shows that such an investigation is with-in the purview of the FBI. The FBI is the agency charged investigation of espionage with-in the United States. I even suspect the Director of the FBI (political appointee) or AG are not aware of such an investigation. The core of investigators is probably a group of FBI agents who care more about the well being of the United States than the crooked politicians currently in power.

Third, the issue Trump-Russia contacts are just too big to sweep under the rug. Eventually, someone will get fed up with the situation and become a whistle-blower. Sooner than later I hope.

Fourth, this issue will be the largest nuclear bomb of politics in the United States in our history. A lot of people will be sent to prison when this information comes out.

The dirty politicians will try to convince the public that such an investigation is a coup to overthrow the government. It’s not. It’s how citizens can restore their confidence in their country with an honest and accountable government.

I hope I’m right this time.

Point out the blind spots in their prepping, but don’t immediately say it’s for climate change, let them work (hard) to get that out of you.
Are you able to / do you need to prep for climate change? Do so noisily so they know. Do what realistically needs to be done on a personal/family level to prepare for, say, the next century.
Go through the motions as if the climate change deniers in power are intentionally running the world into the ground. If a denier tries to engage you on the topic, cut it short and say “I don’t have time to argue scientific fact” and noisily point out that you need to prep for surviving what is coming.
If they ask what is coming and how to prepare for it, simply say you’ve had it trying to tell them, that they can (fucking) go look it up themselves if they’re interested.

My wife and I will be going through there this weekend on our trip to Massachusetts.

…A TORNADO WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 845 PM CDT FOR
NORTHWESTERN DAWSON COUNTY…

At 809 PM CDT, a confirmed tornado was located 9 miles northeast of
Cozad, or 15 miles northwest of Lexington, moving northeast at 30
mph. Another possible tornado is just southwest of Cozad, also
moving northeast.

HAZARD…Damaging tornado and three inch hail.

SOURCE…Weather spotters confirmed tornado. At 810 PM CDT, trained
weather spotters reported damage 8 miles northeast of Cozad.

IMPACT…Flying debris will be dangerous to those caught without
shelter. Mobile homes will be damaged or destroyed. Damage
to roofs, windows, and vehicles will occur. Tree damage is
likely.

This tornadic thunderstorm will affect Cozad, then remain over
mainly rural areas of western Dawson County.

Personal items “discarded” at U.S.-Mexico border

“…Those who have entered the U.S. illegally, their personal possessions and belongings too easily get lost as they are processed and travel through the U.S. Customs and Border Patrol system,” Kiefer said.
“The enormous amount of belongings, such as extra clothing, socks, shoes and personal items such as rosaries, Bibles, belts, underwear, toothbrushes, soap, was in many ways incomprehensible (to me), and I am certain much of this was not meant to be discarded.”
Kiefer said a goal of the project is to support “a consistent and sensible policy regarding the food carried by migrants who are apprehended and processed.”
“For a number of years, I was allowed to take the canned and nonperishable food (powdered milk, granola bars) to our local food bank, but that came to an end about a year and half before I resigned to work on this project full time.”
Kiefer said the vast majority of items were taken from people crossing the border illegally. He believes there’s something “inherently disturbing” about the items he found in the garbage cans of what’s called the “Sally Port,” a secure, fenced area where those apprehended exit vehicles and begin the first stages of processing.
“I cannot understand why anyone would want to voluntarily give up an item like a rosary, Bible or photo of their child, or for that matter an extra pair of shoes, pants, shirt or jacket,” he said.

Need a reason to deploy troops in the US? Make one:

Florida officials are raising alarm and pressing for details about the purported intention of the Trump administration to send hundreds of immigrants a week to two heavily Democratic counties in South Florida.

Customs and Border Protection has not publicly disclosed its plans. But a partial picture of a new approach to managing a record influx of immigrants at the southern border came into view on Thursday based on the accounts of local leaders in Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Even allies of the president were nonplussed. The state’s Republican governor, Ron DeSantis, joined federal lawmakers from Florida — Republicans and Democrats alike — in questioning the apparent effort to foist the immigration and asylum burden on two local jurisdictions without equipping them with the resources to house, feed, educate and protect new arrivals.

Law enforcement briefed on the plans said the arrivals were set to begin within the next two weeks and that no end date had been set. They said they still hoped federal authorities would reverse course.

We have urban beavers here, too. Not a lot, but some. And years ago in Denver when the city turned the banks of Cherry Creek into a park, they planted trees which the beavers happily felled. The next batch of trees were fenced…

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy invited former George W. Bush economic adviser Larry Lindsey to give Republican leadership a presentation on the escalating Trump-China trade war. It turned weird when Lindsey took the opportunity to inform the assembled Republicans that he had asked two psychologists to evaluate Trump’s behavior and they came to the same conclusion as most of the rest of the planet.

The professionals found that Trump was a “10 out of 10 narcissist,” Lindsey told the Republicans, according to a GOP aide present at the talk who spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Lindsey apparently didn’t just leave it there, but used it as the tee-off for an unflattering two-minute look into Trump’s psychology.

Kansas Supreme Court 7-1 decision:

The decision, in which one of the seven justices dissented, cites in its first sentence the first section of the Kansas Constitution’s Bill of Rights: “All men are possessed of equal and inalienable natural rights, among which are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”

The decision continues: “We are now asked: ‘Is this declaration of rights more than an idealized aspiration? And, if so, do the substantive rights include a woman’s right to make decisions about her body, including the decision whether to continue her pregnancy? We answer these questions, ‘Yes.’ “

The court continued that “this right allows a woman to make her own decisions regarding her body, health, family formation, and family life — decisions that can include whether to continue a pregnancy.”

“The State may only infringe upon the right to decide whether to continue a pregnancy,” the ruling continued, “if the State has a compelling interest and has narrowly tailored its actions to that interest.”

Most large bases run a lottery for hunting slots to keep the deer from starving out. Hunters are very carefully controlled to keep them off “red” sectors, and they have to follow state game laws as well.

A herd of “white deer” (White-tailed deer with a recessive gene that gives them white coats, but they are not albinos) built up in the closed off area of the now-closed Senaca Army Depot in central New York between two of the Finger Lakes.

en.wikipedia.org

There are plans to develop a conservation park for at least part of the herd. So someone realizes that there is some tourism value in them.

I have seen some of the deer a few times passing past the old base while transiting between Philadelphia (or Ithaca) and my brother’s place further west.

Every grocery store will give you money. If you need to deposit small things, most banks have an app that you can take pictures with.

I have a local bank that covers the eastern third of Texas. The checking account only charges if you have less than $100 and uses the debit card less than 5 times a month. They even gave me $9.99 when I set up direct deposit.
