From downstairs:

A two star army general at Ft Hood started following me on twitter last week. he does not follow many people.

I looked at his time line today and he is retweeting MAGA propaganda from Trump.

This is an active line general disseminating partisan political positions on social media.

Just sent this to him:

Sir…is it advisable to disseminate partisan political positions from POTUS on your social media? To wit Donald J. Trump ✔ @realDonaldTrump The Democrats have become known as THE DO NOTHING PARTY!

This has the appearance of official army sanction of a civilian political affair, and I honestly cannot think of many things more destructive to the tradition of military subordination to civilian administration

Snow falling at Robinson Flat on Tuesday, May 21st. There’s still plenty of snow in the high country on the Tahoe National Forest!

Record snow in the German Alps as well.

If 2020 is totally lost to us, then the future is permanently lost. OTOH, maybe they are planning on dealing with this in the next rulings before the end of the session. So we should wait until then before declaring all is lost.

Not necessarily; note that “….The court will issue rulings on partisan gerrymandering in two other cases in the next few weeks.”

Instead of ruling separately on these two cases, the upcoming rulings on the other cases may have these folded into them.

Gerrymandering is part of an approach that involves voter suppression and active tampering. They have no place in our modern democracy and cannot be looked on as acceptable.

Interesting article I found about the German resistance in 1936
marxists.org
Josephine Herbst
The German Underground War
I. Anti-Nazi Feeling Rises
Published: The Nation, January 8, 1936.

How long will the psychological reasons for submission to Hitler hold in the face of continuing economic instability for the great mass of people? Hitler has been successful in selling to the Germans the idea that he saved the country and all Europe from bolshevism, and that bolshevism is a destructive force, a strictly Jewish movement. Lately the term bolshevism with too much use has begun to lose its sharp edge. The Catholics also have been accused of bolshevism. The result has been to throw them into the opposition movement. In the Saar one of the illegal papers of the underground movement appears with the hammer and sickle combined with the Catholic cross. A priest about to be arrested was warned by the underground route; his house was surrounded by workers and peasants from the neighborhood, few of whom were Catholic, and the troopers coming to arrest him turned back at the sight of the dense crowd.

The existence of the underground movement is denied in the legal press, but twenty illegal papers come out regularly in Berlin alone. Hundreds of others appear irregularly. The papers are distributed by children and by workers during their working hours. The penalty for distributing such contraband may be the concentration camp; it may be death. Strikes are treason, and leaders are punished by death at the hands of a firing squad or by sentences to concentration camps. Yet strikes go on. Dozens occurred last summer, especially in the metal trades. Sometimes the strike consisted in a passive laying down of tools for an hour. Sometimes work was merely slowed up, “sticking,” as they term it, “to the hands.” Demonstrations used to be made for the release of Thälmann, the Communist leader, but lately there have been none, and it is not known for certain whether he is alive or dead. Only Germans who get their information from the legal press have any illusions about the so-called “bloodless revolution” of the Nazis; blood has flowed and is flowing. But if this last year was marked by the further concentration of wealth in the hands of the big industrialists, it is also notable that in the same period the underground movement made its greatest progress.

37
gocart mozart  May 24, 2019 • 1:06:14pm
The outside world is always impatient of the predicament of a particular nation. Other people are always stupid and gulled by their leaders. Even within Germany itself some underground workers still puzzle at the suddenness of Hitler’s blow. How could the powerful trade-union movement have been so easily crushed? The German worker, they say, was ideologically the best-informed worker in the world; he read economics, was versed in Marxist theory. The German worker was also patient and endowed with power to wait and endure. His very virtues became a trap for him. His long training under an earlier militaristic Germany in which order was a god made him an easier dupe.

Gerrymandering is part of an approach that involves voter suppression and active tampering. They have no place in our modern democracy and cannot be looked on as acceptable.

Gerrymandering per se doesn’t involve voter suppression and active tampering though its purpose is to silence certain voters and inflate the impact of others. Thanks to gerrymandering, Republicans retained control of over 60% of the Wisconsin legislature although Democrats received more votes.

And as a reminder to all, although statewide races are not “gerrymandered”, Constitution in effect has gerrymandered the states so certain states are given an outsized effect on results. A Senate majority can represent only 20% of the population. To pass a Constitutional amendment requires 38 states — and those states can represent only 40% of the population. This is toxic to our nation and our future.

Very chilling knowing how this all turned out. Here they were, Americans here and Germans there — living in a hopeful delusion. May this not foretell our future, especially given that there is no powerful nation like 1930’s United States waiting in the wings in our current world, ready to protect democracy or freedom. Of course, given our institutional racism and misogyny back then, our refusal to help those fleeing Nazi Germany, and too much of our press Nazi-friendly, we may not have seemed up to the role then either.

“May not have seemed”… no. We definitely WERE. NOT. up to the role.

The isolationist faction in the Senate (aka the people who wanted Germany to win) had the upper hand. FDR wanted to get into the war, and the Senate wouldn’t agree. The Bund (those people who threw the Nazi rally at Madison Square Garden) were way better organized, and had way more public support, than the people who opposed them. Lindbergh was like the 1930’s LeBron, huge hero, total Nazi. The Nazis had agents all over America working to prepare for their eventual (after the European continent, then the UK) plan to attack/occupy US.

Yeehaw! Simple barefoot millionaires and tycoons.

What is the “poli-drawl?” That’s my term for the absurdly exaggerated drawl affected by certain Texas politicians in a mistaken effort to sound like the little people. This is a type of “plain Folks” propaganda, and it shows just how cynical and how far out of touch they are with the constituents. We natives speak with a drawl, all right, but we do not sound like a vaudeville parody of a semi-literate hick. Quite a few of our politicians do, at least in public. To paraphrase FDR, they want us to think they are simple bare-foot millionaire lawyers and tycoons.

Springsteen - Thunder Crack

Her brains they rattle and her bones they shake
Oh she’s an angel from the Innerlake
Her brains they rattle and her bones they shake
Oh she’s an angel from the Innerlake
Don’t dance with her Henry, don’t you dance with her Jake (her brains they rattle and her bones they shake)
Oh she’s an angel from the Innerlake
She gives me all the loving that a good man can take (her brains they rattle and her bones they shake)
Oh she’s an angel from the Innerlake

(Sha-na, na-na, na na, oh oh)
(Sha-na, na-na, na na, oh oh)
(Sha-na, na-na, na na, oh oh)
(Sha-na, na-na, na na, oh oh)
Thundercrack, baby’s back
This time she’ll tell me how she really feels
Bring me down to her lightning shack
You can watch my partner reeling
She moves up, she moves back
Out on the floor there just is no one cleaner
She does this thing she calls the “jump back jack”
She’s got the heart of a ballerina

Straight from the Bronx, hung off the line
Still she slides, she slops, she bops, she bumps, she grinds
Even them dance hall hacks from the west side of the track move in close to catch her timing
She moves up, she moves back
Out on the floor there just is no one cleaner
She does this thing she calls the “jump back jack”
She’s got the heart of a ballerina

Oh, she ain’t no little girl, no, she ain’t got no curls
Her hair ain’t brown and her eyes ain’t either
Round and round and round
(Round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round)
(Round and round and round and round and round and round and round and round)

My heart’s wood, she’s a carpenter
She’s an angel in the night, what she does is alright
Dance with me, partner
Dance with me, partner
Dance with me, partner, ‘til the dawn
Baby, all night long

(Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-ohhh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-ohhh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-ohhh oh-oh oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-ohhh oh-oh oh-oh)

[long instrumental break]

Thundercrack, (baby’s back)

Dance with me, partner
Dance with me, partner
Dance with me, partner
All night, (all night)
All night, (all night)
All night, (all night)

Wow, this tweet really infuriated a random Twitter guy. Massive scorn coming at me.

Who knew calling for doing what’s morally correct would be so controversial?

Remember, their idea of ‘morally correct’ is, “The strong do what they can and the weak suffer what they must.”

They are barbarians pretty much to a man, after all.

California agriculture is more than enough to feed the entire State and still export the majority of the nation’s strawberries, asparagus, garlic, wine and marijuana.

California’s fisheries provide the majority of the nation’s tuna.

California’s oil fields supply more than the state needs.

California’s tech and entertainment sectors are enormous export industries. California has a majority of the nation’s space industry (yes, even more than Houston and Canaveral).

California’s navy bases control the entire Pacific Ocean.

How intent are Democratic voters on ousting President Trump?

A fresh poll* reveals that nearly 58% of them would prefer a 2020 nominee they disagree with on most issues, as long as they believe he or she would likely defeat Trump, with just 34% backing a contender they tend to agree with most of the time but who appears likely to lose.
