Immigrants shouldn’t learn to speak English is apparently one of the new tenets of Trumpian conservatism.

Nope — Trump doesn’t want any immigrants who aren’t already fluent in English and highly educated. His goal is to deport all those who attempt to emigrate from South of the border. He will not lose a single supporter no matter how badly he treats those who are fleeing from nightmare conditions because his supporters all share his contempt for those fleeing tyranny or poverty. They have no compassion for the suffering of others.

This #PrideMonth foolishness is getting way out of hand. The LGBTQ are NOT persecuted. It’s openly celebrated and it’s all ONE BIG LIE.

I have a Log Cabin Republican college friend who insists that he has been more persecuted for being a Conservative than for being gay.

Robert E. Lee statue sells in Dallas for more than $1.4 million

After a heated bidding war, a Robert E. Lee statue removed from a Dallas park in 2017 as a result of a City Council vote has a new owner. A bidder known only as “LawDude” bought it for $1,435,000, reports CBS Dallas.

Another bidder, “MustangJerry,” who was the first to place a bid - of $450,000 — topped out at $1,432,500 after placing 20 bids.

The Lone Star Auctioneers Inc. website said online bidding for the bronze sculpture ended Wednesday, according to The Associated Press.

Made in 1936, at the height of the Lost Cause in American culture. Minimum bid was $450K, the amount the city needed to recoup the cost of removing the thing. Looks like they made a tidy profit in the process.

Blame shifting is how we avoid accepting something that is outside of our control.

In this case the discussion is about the decline of inner cities, urban sprawl, etc.

I rant here about flippers and their evil ways, but I acknowledge that flippers can only do their thing if there is a mass of people who buy their cheapness.

This is not just limited to academic discussions of urban planning.

Blame shifting is why Hitler is such an obsessive target of cheap entertainment and commentators. The idea is to blame shift onto a single person, failing to acknowledge that is was fascist Germany which created Hitler, not the reverse. Sure, leaders are called such because they are influencers, but that is what they are - influencers.

America created Trump and his presidency. We may be uncomfortable that there are tens of millions of our fellow Americans who are ignorant bigots, but that is what we have here in the 21st century.

Getting back to urban planning: it’s an easy thing to blame oil companies or General Motors for urban sprawl and the (often racist) hollowing out of cities, but that ignores that the Americans who moved did so because they wanted to do such.

re: #24 Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus

“…there were massive government efforts…” - that makes it sound as if there was some secret program hatched from the top.

But that is just a way to blame shift from those who created the decline of inner cities: the people who wanted to move.

There was a lot more to it than that. When I was born in Gary, there were distinct and segregated black and white neighborhoods. No real estate agent could think of selling a home to black in a white neighborhood without fear of being run out of the business, nor would banks even grant a mortgage.

But then things changed, and those white neighborhoods were full of homes that the families had paid off and had no plan to move out of.

But they just ripe for being flipped, so real estate agencies then raised the specter of hordes of blacks overrunning them, which encouraged the whites to sell out quickly and cheaply and then to re-sell them to blacks at a premium because it was a “mostly white neighborhood”…

My mom was a widow and could not afford to move at first. I saw how quickly the neighborhoods changed their ethic character.

That happened to us twice in Gary before my mom finally gave up and joined the white exodus to the suburbs.

My point is that the real estate salesmen didn’t create the desire to move - that was the inherent bigotry and racism that had long been part of American culture.

Real estate salesmen are opportunists, looking for fruit that is ripe to be picked.

They “wanted” to do so because of massive subsidies, all of which were explicitly for white people only. Each new suburb had a federally-funded good sized park, a large library, brand new state of the art public schools, FHA mortgages were below-prime, 10% down, no credit record required, and only applied to districts zoned whites-only.

The banks, the federal government (and state governments, and in some cases county governments) pushed these policies because oil companies and car companies and tire companies and road construction companies lobbied them to do so.

People went to prison for it.

It wasn’t the desire to move, but it was the fear of blacks - and the fear of losing the value of their investment.

With Elizabeth Warren and other lawmakers intensifying their pressure on Silicon Valley, the big four tech companies have begun beefing up their lobbying operations for an all-out knife fight with Washington. Facebook, Amazon, Google, and Apple have made a major push to increase their presence in DC, doubling their combined spending and staffing up with lobbyists close to the White House, Capitol Hill, and regulators. “They are no longer upstarts dipping a toe in lobbying,” Sheila Krumholz, executive director of the Center for Responsive Politics, told the New York Times on Wednesday. “They have both feet in.”

Per the Times, the four tech giants spent a combined $55 million on lobbying in 2018—about twice as much as the combined $27.4 million they spent in 2016. They’ve also registered 238 lobbyists this year, a vast majority of whom have served in government and political campaigns, including on behalf of lawmakers who could have a hand in regulating tech companies.

They get to whisper in your congress person’s ear a lot more often than you and I do.

They have good reason to build out their arsenal. On Capitol Hill, the companies have seen bipartisan inquiry about matters ranging from privacy to the role social media played in Russia’s election interference in 2016.

It’s a marathon in a can!!!

Young adults today are imbibing less than previous generations, and many have kicked the habit altogether, preferring to make sobriety the hip choice. At the same time, health-conscious millennials are spending more money at the gym, even making group-fitness birthday celebrations a thing.

So it was only a matter of time before beverage manufacturers began marketing formulations tuned to your health, such as 26.2 Brew. The flagship drink of Marathon Brewing Company, a new branch of the Boston Beer Company (makers of Sam Adams), 26.2 purports to be a beer “for runners, by runners.” Created by marathoner, triathlete and cicerone Shelley Smith, 26.2 has 4.0 percent alcohol by volume, 9 grams of carbs and 120 calories. The golden ale is made in part with Himalayan sea salt — which helps to replenish your body with electrolytes.

Smith says hardworking runners are always looking for optimal post-workout drinks — ones that taste good and give them a buzz without undermining their fitness regimen.

First world problems (and it isn’t even Florida Man!)

A Florida neighborhood is beginning to look a lot like one of those terrifying scenes from the classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller ‘The Birds.’

That’s because hundreds of black vultures are invading the neighborhood, damaging the roofs they walk on and blocking sidewalks with their large, extended wings, according to CBS affiliate WKMG.

Residents think the vulture invasion is due to development encroaching on the birds’ previous habitat.

“It sounds like there are rocks being dropped on our rooftop,” a resident of the neighborhood told WKMG. He estimates 200 to 300 vultures live around the small subdivision.

Residents say the birds have been very destructive. One resident said he has replaced his pool screen three times because the vultures sharp talons tear it to shreds.

A defense mechanism that the vultures have is to regurgitate when startled. I blame the loss of DDT for the overabundance of such creatures. /

Huckabee’s attempted dunk would’ve landed if Germany had spent the decades since erecting monuments to the defeated white supremacist regime, waving its flags and enacting laws that punished and oppressed those who were liberated.

Huckabee has no fucking idea about how Germany has dealt with its past. Especially for someone like Angela Merkel, who grew up in postwar East Germany.

At this point all the Allies had done is successfully gotten a number of divisions ashore. Omaha Beach was still a mess, the beach heads were not connected at all. And the Day 1 goal of getting to Caen and the nearby airfields had not been completed.

So there was a lot more left to do simply to consolidate what they had. And then the task begins of building up forces faster than the Germans can bring in more troops of their own.

I had one of those for my Sam for a while. After he realized that he would get food on a regular basis, along with that bowl, he stopped scarfing down his food. He still eats faster than the other dogs but he doesn’t inhale everything like he used to.

And he ate the shit out of that bowl. All the little peaks were chewed up (I didn’t have a bowl like that, mine was all peaks and valleys). I think he enjoyed eating that bowl as much as he did the food in it!

By June, 1944 the die had been cast; the Soviet Union was going to defeat Germany. But if D-Day had failed, it could’ve resulted in a postwar world in which the entire continent went Communist, possibly leaving the US isolated in a socialist world.

granted, el-hi american history was a long time ago for me, so maybe this is fuzzy, revisionist, and muddled.

the way i remember it, the civil war was presented more or less as part of the common heritage of a single country that went through some turmoil, fought it out and then came to terms and moved on.

something like a husband and wife have a fight, maybe even separate, then reconcile. the marriage was continuous.

yes, of course reality was very different. we were not ‘a country divided’. the south in fact, left the union. they became the enemy of the union. they chose to fight a war against the union. they lost.

what im getting at is this kind of simplistic thinking (a single country divided and then healed) led and probably still leads many people to not get why celebrating secession and the taking up of arms against the ‘actual’ United States is perpetuating a lie and a myth.

When we first brought Scout home, he was suffering from ‘food anxiety’ from being in the rescue shelter and having to share his food with two other pups in his cage.

What we did was get a tennis ball and put it in the middle of his bowl, forcing him to eat around it. After a couple of weeks, it slowed his eating down to the point where he ate slower even without the ball.

As he’s gotten older he’s gone in the other direction - now he’ll pick out one or two bits of food and chew them up before he grabs another couple bits, repeat. It now takes him a few minutes to get through a bowl of food.

That was as much of a brilliant feint as was D-Day, where the German General Staff (aka Hitler) was convinced that the invasion would take place in the Pas de Calais and Normandy was at most a diversion, the Russians had the Germans convinced that they would attack in the Ukraine.

Instead they attacked farther north, in Byelorussia, where the Germans had stripped the front of most of its tanks to move them to the Ukraine. The ruse worked again, as Hitler read the initial attacks as diversions until it was too late.

the way i remember it, the civil war was presented more or less as part of the common heritage of a single country that went through some turmoil, fought it out and then came to terms and moved on.

If you want to privately celebrate your family’s past and heritage that that is your own good right. But the motivation behind the public display of Confederate regalia was and is often not just a celebration of history and heritage but a reminder of who is still in charge.

We (i.e. Americans) often underestimate or are totally unaware of the essential role that Russia played in Hitler’s defeat.

My mother was with a group of London-based WAC’s that were sent to Normandy in August of 1944. They camped in the fields until they were ultimately transferred to Paris.

I think that it was intentionally played down during the Cold War and we never really recovered from it. Face it, neither side could have won without the other, but at any given time, the overwhelming bulk of Axis forces (and resulting combat losses) were on the Eastern front

I have one of those for my dog. At first, he would just circle around it rapidly, because when he’d get a piece of food, he’d see the next piece to eat. Now he doesn’t do that because he’s not afraid the food is going to disappear, but he still eats a little too fast without it.

I would and have argued that the Soviets could have done it without us. Longer and higher casualties to be sure, but the Germans simply didn’t have the resources to win. Iron, coal, oil, tungsten, etc all put them in a hole that they could not ultimately get out of. As Tootze’s The Wages of Destruction shows, they lost the war the day they declared it. The only questions were how long and how many dead.

And not vital but helpful was the logistical support the Allies got to the USSR. Railroad locomotives (which alleviated the need for the USSR to make more), trucks, tanks, and food among other things.

Another factor of the Normandy landings and then the breakout is that it pretty much wrecked the German forward air defense and radar network. That eased the strategic bombing campaign’s job since a bunch of French targets were captured, British intruder flights and jamming planes could fly much closer to Germany, and the Germans got shorter warning of raids coming in. Plus, at this point, the 4-engine bomber forces were getting pretty built up and capable of inflicting more damage (though generally area bombing and not as pinpoint as the USAAF claimed it could do.)

I used to hold that opinion too. But even with all the other wars on other fronts, the Soviets nearly used up a generation as soldiers (e.g. 97% of men born 1918-20). I have wondered whether they had the manpower to keep fighting for a lot longer.

The German nuclear program was pretty much a dead end. I think one of the post-war indications indicated that their experimental atomic pile was insufficiently shielded and that if it had gone critical it would have fatally irradiated their researchers.

Plus Germany would need to develop a means to get sufficient enriched uranium or plutonium to build a weapon. Given the scale it took for the USA to get the bomb it was pretty much out of the reach of Germany.

I recall reading somewhere that the Russians were starting to have manpower shortages. Not on the scale of the UK ones, but it does indicate that if it had only been Germany vs USSR it would have eventually been a larger issue given the expectation that the defeat of Germany would have taken longer.

o Destruction is extensive, doors, balconies windows destroyed (there are photos where doors and windows — including frames — have been blown in/out).
o At 25 injured, lightly, only 2 remain at the hospital.
o Explosive device was located outside the buildings, on the street.
o Information is emerging that suggests biker gangs (e.g. Bandidos, Hells Angels) are involved.
o Terrorism and accident are less likely as causes for the explosion.
o Swedish Security Service (SÄPO / Säkerhetspolisen) is in the loop.

Dunno: the Nazi atomic program was less of a dead-end than a (deliberate) slow track: Albert Speer (and Hitler) wanted their wonder-weapons on the front lines schnell: and the German researchers (given the relatively paltry resources they had been given up to that time) had had to give him a timeline of several years: ‘til 1946-47 or so, IIRC. Which wasn’t considered quick enough.

IIRC, when the German nuclear scientists (Heisenberg and pals) - who had been captured by the Allies and were being held in genteel captivity in England - heard the news about Hiroshima, they were supposedly astonished that Fermi, Oppenheimer and team had been able to construct a working bomb in as short a time as they had had. Until they heard how much (> $2billion in 1940s dollars) the US had spent…..

That was before the Americans were in, right, and led to the Army’s decision that it had to strike south?

Had Japan won that, thus thinking they could grab resources without seizing the DEI and attacking the US, I’m afraid that there would have been nothing FDR could do to get a declaration of war against any Axis power. And it might have bled enough resources east that Stalin actually would have needed Western Allies support to win the European war. If Japan had continued to leave the US alone, that could have been very bad for everyone.

ALERT! Another bullshit “National Emergency” is incoming!

Via The Hill - President Trump is planning to declare a new national emergency in order to implement sweeping tariffs on Mexico over the flow of Central American migrants to the U.S., according to a draft document of the declaration reviewed by The Hill.

According to the document, the new emergency is necessary due to “the failure of the Government of Mexico to take effective action to reduce the mass migration of aliens illegally crossing into the United States through Mexico.”

The new emergency declaration would follow a February emergency declaration, which Trump used to justify sending National Guard troops to support Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials at the southern border.

The draft document signals that the White House believes that imposing the tariffs under the February emergency declaration might not pass legal muster. But it remains unclear if a final decision has been made to invoke another emergency. The White House did not answer questions about the document.

Officials from the White House counsel’s office and the Justice Department floated the idea of a new declaration this week during a closed-door meeting with Republican senators.

he also made this one re any possible violations of the emoluments clause:

“any profits from foreign governments would be donated to charity, so “problem solved.”“

today they’re saying it’s too hard to figure out which money came from foreign governments, and which money did not, so they can’t possibly be expected to abide by the emoluments clause.

true enough and anyone not in the bag for trump saw this coming a mile off. as electoral-vote.com says this AM, “approximately 1 million people pointed out that, given the complexity of his portfolio, he would never be able to separate out the “foreign” profits in any meaningful way. “

in a sense, the guy is brilliant. he makes outrageous statements. people lap it up. and 3 years later when it comes back calling, he does a 180 AND we find there’s no teeth in any rule law or regulation to hold him accountable.

My libertarian friend loves him some Ben Shapiro.

I am confused. What views does (e.g.) Ben share with either of the candidates on the Libertarian ticket in 2016? Ross Perot’s running mate James Stockdale was also a libertarian. Am wracking my brains to figure out what Ben has in common with any of these candidates — other than being a white male?

AFAIK, there’s no Libertarian platform. There’s a set of collective beliefs, and all other beliefs are allowed, so long as you adhere to some Randian ones. And there’s small ‘l’ libertarianism, which may or may not be different.

And another reason to tell Trump to go fuck himself. That’s the same cancer that killed my mother in less than a year after diagnosis despite surgery and radiation. (Without the surgery it would have essentially killed her in under two months from diagnosis - this is a very aggressively growing cancer.)

Cheryl Rofer at balloon-juice.com makes an observation about Russia’s defeating the Germans:

The Russian government has been cranky this week over the observances of the 75th anniversary of D-Day. The Allied landings on Normandy beaches were the beginning of the end of Germany’s Western Front.

Russia would like to have a word about that. Russia defeated Germany’s Eastern Front, at enormous cost. The message the Russian government was trying to get out was that it was the eastern front that was really the defeat of Hitler. Further, Russia is owed bigtime by the rest of Europe for that.

The Russian role in World War II is often minimized in Western versions of the defeat of Hitler. Russia suffered enormous losses.

But the Russian role is not unambiguous. In 1939, the Soviet Union signed the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact to fight together with Germany and divide up the parts of Europe between their then boundaries after the victory. That assured Hitler that he could concentrate on the Western Front and invade France and adjacent countries while bombing the UK. Without the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact, and with the USSR solidly standing with the rest of Europe, Hitler would have had to think twice.

Hitler double-crossed Stalin, of course, by invading Soviet territory in 1941. That forced Russia to fight on the side of the Western allies. Russia could have put up a better fight if Stalin hadn’t purged the generals in 1937. The Soviet military was in disarray, allowing the German army almost to reach Moscow.

Meanwhile, bombing on the Western Front weakened Hitler, and American Lend-Lease strengthened the Soviets. But a competition remained: Soviet spies were sending the plans for American nuclear weapons to Moscow, and there was a race in the Far East to occupy Japan first.

But Russia wants the story to be of the damage it survived and went on to help the Allies win. That is true, but it is only part of the story.

Cheryl Rofer at balloon-juice.com makes an observation about Russia’s defeating the Germans:

The Russian drive to defeat Germany was as much about feeling betrayed by Hitler as it was the losses they suffered on the Eastern Front. The historical irony is that Hitler only violated the Non-Aggression Pact because Britain refused to surrender after the French capitulated, leaving him convinced that they were awaiting help from the Russians and so he pushed up his timetables to force a quicker surrender. Hell, had Stalin been killed or forced to surrender, it’s possible that Churchill would have had little choice but to follow him, as there would be little hope of breaching “Fortress Europe.”

British reviews of Trump’s visit are rolling in.

Marina Hyde:

“…It is finally over, then, the state visit during which US President Donald Trump treated Britain like a Moscow hotel mattress. God, we deserved it. The event served most tellingly as a vicious satire on British public life, with every fevered reaction to it recalling Sybil Fawlty’s assessment of her husband Basil’s way with guests: “You never get it right, do you? You’re either crawling all over them, licking their boots, or spitting poison at them like some Benzedrined puff adder.”

And so with the entire political class, who spent three days either fawning over this Nascar royal wedding, or shriekingly defining themselves against it to boost their personal brands. Much better to have treated Trump with the exquisitely polite disinterest of a competent hotelier - perhaps the only language he understands.

Instead, he was welcomed as grist to our dark satanic content mills. Rolling news offered the 24-hour spectacle of Britain being borne back ceaselessly into its past, while our best hope for the future is apparently to beg for a few scraps of chlorinated chicken in exchange for a go on the NHS.”
