INT - Command center. Two HIGH RANKING OFFICERS are sitting in front of a display of monitors showing various scenes of military activity and news reports on Iran. OFFICER 1 has his head cupped in his hands and OFFICER 2 is staring ahead blankly.

OFFICER 1
Oh my god, is that dumb bastard EVER going to talk to us before running his mouth on Twitter?

OFFICER 2
Is that a rhetorical question?

OFFICER 1
He seriously thinks we can completely blow up Iran overnight. Can you believe that?

OFFICER 2
Yes. Yes, I can.

OFFICER 1
Like, holy shit, man. Holy fucking shit. I remember W. The guy was a few beers short of a six pack but Trump…that crazy motherfucker isn’t even near the convenience store! Do yo have any idea how hard it is to explain military strategy to someone with the knowledge level of a six year old??

[OFFICER 2 nods]

OFFICER 1
You seem surprisingly not pissed off about this, why is that?

OFFICER 2
Simple. I used to like serving. I used to enjoy what I did, but I haven’t enjoyed it since that orange asshole became President. I have six months left to go until I can take retirement. After that, I’m out of here. Of course, I’m pissed off but at this point all I can do is just count down the days.

OFFICER 1
I mean really, how many letters did we send to the White House stating how important it was that we be consulted before he tweets things about Foreign policy?

OFFICER 2
Apparently not enough.

OFFICER 1
When he first got elected I went to go talk to him, tried to play nice. He would barely say a word to me unless I told him who I voted for in the last election. Finally, I just lied and said I voted for him. He said, “thank you” or something and walked away and I’ve seen him exactly two times since. I sometimes saw President Obama multiple times in ONE DAY.

OFFICER 2
Well, at least you’re on vacation next week.

OFFICER 1
Yes and thank God for that.

[A JUNIOR OFFICER approaches OFFICER 1 and OFFICER 2]

JUNIOR OFFICER
Guys, he’s saying stupid shit about Iran again.

OFFICER 1 (head in hands)
Motherfucker.

OFFICER 2
(staring at the ceiling) I’m being punished for something I did in a past life, aren’t I?

the 24-hour gauge total at 7 am today was 2.60”.
That made 6.86” for the 7-day total and an even 11” so far in June.

A couple of thunderstorms have already rolled through here today. Generally damp and sticky outside and I’m glad I ran out and did my errands in the morning between storms.

I have visitors coming in this afternoon from New York state. Not the best driving conditions and I expect the late afternoon traffic will be even worse due to the weather.

All that water has to go somewhere.

Somewhere is downstream.

Ohio River flows in to the Mississippi, which has been above flood stage for much of the year. The Big Muddy has been above high water level in Louisiana for 225+ days in a row (and counting).

In other words, the higher the water level, the faster it goes, and the more concern placed on flood control systems not designed to handle these kinds of events for the duration experienced.

Exactly. That is going to slow down the ability of the Illinois River (which is where I live, and it’s a lot closer now than it usually is!) to drain, and it is VERY high, just off record levels at this point.

It’s at least a month before the Army Corps will even consider closing the Bonnet Carre spillway, and they just avoided having to open the Morganza spillway.

Bonnet Carre has been open a record number of days this year, and the river has been above high water for a record number of days as well.

41% of the US drains into/through the Mississippi. So, all that rain up along the Ohio will make its way into the mix soon enough.

I’ve been thinking about police, ICE, CPB and other important organizations like this. We will never be able to get rid of most of the corruption just by making new laws. We are going to have to encourage people on the left to join these groups in large numbers and stay in for a long time, to the point where they make their way into leadership positions. It’s the only real way to fix some of them.

A Democratic administration will need to hold existing CPB and ICE members to account for their actions, but that’s a slightly different thing.

Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour auctioned off 120 guitars at Christie’s today, and his white Fender Stratocaster - serial number #0001, arguably the first Strat ever built, pulled down over $1.8 million dollars. This is the guitar in question:

Many of his guitars pulled down record-setting numbers, including a Martin acoustic that went for over a million (surpassing the amount paid for one of Eric Clapton’s acoustics), and a Les Paul Gold Top set a new record amount for a Les Paul at $447,000.

I was lucky enough to have been invited by a Christie’s member to view the collection on Monday, and I was astounded at the number and quality of the guitars up for auction.

And good on Gilmour - he donated all of the proceeds to various charities.

Same over here on the other side of the Mississippi. The North Platte River is out of its banks in several places around me, when it’s usually very low this time of year.

Further downstream, the Platte River is normally near-dry this time of year, but is also very high.

All that water has to go somewhere, and it usually goes into the Missouri River. That’s also very high (the eastern part of the state is still flooded).

Unfuckingbelievable.

The government’s case just came crashing down in the prosecution of former special operations chief Navy SEAL Edward Gallagher. Gallagher is facing life in prison for shooting civilians, including a school-age girl, and knifing to death a captured ISIS fighter receiving medical treatment in Iraq in 2017. Gallagher also faces obstruction of justice charges for allegedly attempting to intimidate troops reporting his crimes.

During the prosecution’s case, SO1 Corey Scott was called to testify for the government. As a primary prosecution witness, the expectation was that Scott would provide a first-hand account of Gallagher’s stabbing the ISIS fighter. Scott, who happened to have been granted immunity, threw prosecutors quite the curveball. Instead of delivering damning testimony against Gallagher, Scott testified that it was he himself who’d actually been responsible for the prisoner’s death. Scott said in court that he put his thumb over the injured fighter’s breathing tube, causing him to die.

“I knew he was going to die anyway,” Scott said. “I wanted to save him from waking up to what had happened next.”

Following the proceedings, Scott was reportedly observed talking and joking with Gallagher.

It certainly signaled the Solid South segregationists that they would eventually not be welcome in the Democratic Party.

Support from the infamous China Lobby, seldom mentioned today, also helped with the right wing transformation of the GOP.

Yup. Sessions is making noises, the old Auburn football coach is in, and a couple plausible wallflowers.

Per wikipedia, these are the declared candidates:

Stanley Adair, businessman
Bradley Byrne, U.S. Representative for Alabama’s 1st congressional district
John Merrill, Alabama Secretary of State
Arnold Mooney, state representative
Roy Moore, former Chief Justice of the Alabama Supreme Court, former candidate for governor in 2006 and 2010, accused child molester and nominee for U.S. Senate in 2017
Tommy Tuberville, former Auburn Tigers football head coach

I don’t know much (anything) about Alabama politics, but that seems like a wide enough field, with enough plausible candidates, for Moore to fuck things up again.

Not sure if this was posted already, but…

The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that a Peace Cross war memorial on public land outside Washington, D.C., can stand, determining in a 7-2 decision that it does not violate the Constitution.

Residents of Prince George’s County, Maryland and the American Humanist Association (AHA) had sued to have the cross taken down, and the American Legion, whose symbol is also on the memorial, intervened to defend it. While the residents and AHA claimed that a cross memorial on public land violated the Constitution, the Court determined that factors, including the history of the memorial, support the idea that it is not religious in nature.

“For nearly a century, the Bladensburg Cross has expressed the community’s grief at the loss of the young men who perished, its thanks for their sacrifice, and its dedication to the ideals for which they fought,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote in the court’s opinion. Alito noted that while this particular cross does not serve a religious purpose, removing it because it is a cross would be a religiously charged action.

“It has become a prominent community landmark, and its removal or radical alteration at this date would be seen by many not as a neutral act but as the manifestation of ‘a hostility toward religion that has no place in our Establishment Clause traditions,’” he wrote, quoting Justice Breyer’s concurrence in the 2005 decision in Van Orden v. Perry
.

The court’s decision reverses the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, which ruled that the cross was unconstitutional.

RBG and Sotomayor were the NAYs.

It certainly signaled the Solid South segregationists that they would eventually not be welcome in the Democratic Party. The switch took a while, 20 years or more, mostly because the liberal wing of the Republican Party (Rockefeller, Dewey, etc.) was loathe to take in the orphaned segregationists. The conservative Taft wing continued to harbor extreme isolationists and left-over pro-fascists, however.

I’m mostly of the belief that Nixon was attempting to use the southern conservatives but wasn’t necessarily in league with them. He opened the door because he realized it was his best chance to get the electoral college votes necessary in 1968. But both Nixon and Ford were willing and able to flip them the bird. Reagan paid them lip service but was also able to straddle the line on social war issues (he talked a good game on things like abortion but still appointed O’Connor and Kennedy). I think they really came into their own, as a force, late in the GWB administration as many of the other factions within the Republican coalition opted out. Now, they’re basically all that’s left.

So, as mentioned earlier Wal-Mart got fined $282 million for violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.

For the 2018 fiscal year, Wal-Mart made $1.29 BILLION in profit.

Which means, if you do the math, this penalty represents about 22% of the money Wal-Mart made last year.

But even AFTER the penalty, Wal-Mart is still left with OVER $1 Billion in profit.

Peter the cocker spaniel has an unusual condition. When he gets excited, he freezes, and falls on his back. The temporary paralysis is similar to that of Mytonic goats, which have been dubbed “fainting goats.”

In a video shared on ViralHog, Peter’s owners are walking him while he sniffs around. But as he steadily gets more excitable, he starts to tremble, then keels over.

“Oh there he goes,” his owner says as his legs seize up and he rolls onto his back. “Oh my goodness, Peter.”

Apparently the land was previously owned by the American Legion and was acquired by the local government in the early 60s.

Except for Texas, Humphrey was completely shut out of the old Solid South in the ‘68 election.

weird times - trump has not just pushed the overton window - he’s twisted the dial a whole quarter revolution

trumpy types now support a number of positions that are anathema to regular republicans and corporate democrats, but weirdly line up with progressive positions - altho the trumpykins often have typically stupid reasons for them

- they are dead set against what they term “globalism”, especially in its “free” trade and multinational corporation friendly manifestations like nafta and tpp

- they officially hate the kochs, because they are - of course - “globalists”, specifically citing their promotion of free trade and “open borders”. and because the kochs are giving money to - gasp! - democrats. democrats who are favorable to free trade. corporate democrats

- after decades of cluelessness, they have finally twigged to the fact that corporations are impoverishing them by not only shipping their jobs off to other countries, but also by exploiting undocumented labor. of course, they simultaneously believe that “mexicans are taking our jobs” and “illegal aliens all come here to live on welfare”. but isn’t believing in two contradictory ideas at the same time orwell’s “doublethink”?

- they’ve repudiated the iraq war and become isolationists. the bush’s were “globalists”. mcconnell is a “globalist”. even ryan morphed from a tea party darling into a hated “globalist”. in fact, they are opposed to most republican senators and congresspersons - “globalists!!”

so, really, the opposition to progressivism has morphed into two mutually hostile camps - corporate republicans and democrats, friendly to “holding down corporate labor costs” and maintaining and expanding american military and political dominance overseas, and

a bunch of racist morons who want to stay out of foreign wars, and oppose the destruction of american jobs by corporations -

RUSH: So I got an interesting email. “Mr. Limbaugh, what do you think or who do you think is really stirring up this business with Iran?” It’s a good question, ‘cause you know who’s buddy-buddy with Iran and who has been over there attempting to undermine Trump administration on policy with Iran is none other than John Kerry — the haughty John Kerry, who served in Vietnam.
I think that his daughter married some Revolutionary Guard assassin or something, some such thing. His daughter married somebody from over there. The foreign minister’s third cousin, I don’t know what, but there’s some family tie now. And of course, the Iran deal in the Obama administration was one of their great things, they believe, and Trump has come in and has summarily ripped it apart and backed out of it, which has cost the Iranians 150 (what was it?) billion dollars or million dollars, whatever we dropped on the tarmac there.

So they’re ticked as they can be over sanctions and Trump’s relegating them to this secondary status, and the fact that John Kerry (you can put Obama in this sentence or not) has been actively advising the Iranians on how to deal with Trump…

I cannot even imagine. I’ve spent what I considered to be a lot of money for a couple of guitars, and what I spent is a fraction of a sliver of a tiny piece of a fragment of $4 mil.

MrBWS has an Alvarez Yairi that he’s had for more than 50 years.
One of his cousins in Cincinnati does guitar repair. Gonna cost about $500 to put it back to good condition (the Yairi and MrBWS have been through a lot of trauma together through the decades).

Calling a nonpublic person an “assassin”, in a context indicating that he meant it literally, is defamation per se. And Limbaugh has deep pockets.

re: #135 Eclectic Cyborg

What must it be like to be so loaded that you have no problem dropping almost $4 mil on a guitar?

Wow.

My father collects guitars. His mother gave him his first guitar - a Guild acoustic - in the 1950s, he still has it but it’s not playable, needs a lot of work. First guitar he bought for himself was after him and my mother got married in 1980, a brand new Gibson Les Paul Custom, $4,000. That’s $12,430 in today’s dollars. Yeah, he had to take out a friggin’ big bank loan just to make that happen (he put my grandfather’s property in Morrison, CO up as collateral). Since then he’s amassed about a dozen instruments. His and her Fender Stratocasters (my mother is left handed, the guitars complement each other perfectly), a Parker Fly, a Gretsch G6120, a Paul Reed Smith SE, Fender Telecaster, both six and 12 string Gibson Acoustic Guitars (made in Bozeman, MT), and his most expensive guitar, a Cordoba nylon string Spanish acoustic, that’s the one he plays the most often these days. He even gave me one of his guitars for my 18th birthday, a Gibson SG. Add all that up and it’s still a *very tiny percentage* of what people were paying for David Gilmour’s guitars today.

Not too long ago, my Dad asked my brother and I which of his belongings of his we would like after he passes away. I REALLY wanted that Guild and so did my brother but there were a couple of other things I really wanted too so, in the end, I decided to let my brother have the guitar.

Between embezzlement allegations, outright theft allegations, and Ackerman McQueen threatening to pull the plug on NRA TV (and putting Dana Loesch out of a job), I would think the membership of that organisation would be livid at how their money was spent.

GEORGE WASHINGTON HIGH SCHOOL TO COVER UP GEORGE WASHINGTON MURAL

There’s plans in the works to cover a mural of George Washington from the halls of George Washington High School in San Francisco due to complaints that it’s offensive and demeaning to Native Americans and African Americans.

The San Francisco school board is expected to decide next week whether to cover the image or paint over it, but there’s no plans among top officials to leave the imagery in the open for students to view, according to several Bay Area news reports.

Front Page uses this image to illustrate the story:


It is not part of the GW high school mural and has absolutely nothing to do with it.
This is a real panel from the mural:

So is this one, of George ordering his men forward over the body of a dead Indian:

You want to take a scenic ride to Wilkes Barre look at US 220 East at the bottom of Snow Shoe. It’s your next downhill from Clearfield. Just about 35 or so miles east. Add about an hour or so if you take 220 to US 15 north to US 6 to WBS. I think you might enjoy it if you are sight seeing and not hurried. Most of the heavy rain is hopefully done through there.

This whole idea of putting the carbon offset into a referendum is nothing but a delaying tactic by the Republicans in Oregon.

If a majority of the state supported the Republicans, they would be the majority in the House and Senate.

More fiscal conservatism: We’ll spend a bunch of money on a pointless referendum rather than doing the job we were elected to do. If they think this is so bad, it’s their job to convince the voters and their colleagues why it’s bad.

Or, rather than 15 north to pick up 6, either 287 (wave at me 4 miles up it) or 14 after it splits from 15. Or just stay on 220 to 6. Central North PA is beautiful.
