Lyrics:
Lights are out the world begins to fade
And I want you to know you’re not alone
Want you to know you’re not alone anymore

I’m here with you
When your hands are shaking
I’m here with you
And your heart is racing
I’m here with you
In the darkest shade of blue

You’re not alone anymore

From the previous thread:

re: #123 The Pie Overlord!

THIS IS THE STUPIDEST & MOST DANGEROUS THING YOU WILL READ ALL DAY:

r/yffinhell

Am I an addict if I cold turkey my epilepsy meds because sometimes they cause me negative side effects (notably one being the same as anti-depressants: slow me down or make me feel tired)? I guarantee I’ll have negative effects in about two or three days if I just quit taking my barbiturates.

How about my thyroid medication? How about my prescription calcium to stave off osteoporosis?

Holy hell that article is irresponsible. Shaming people for taking antidepressants will cause people who need them to quit, and cause others who might benefit from never starting. That sounds like it came right out of the big book of Scientology.

“Americans are more medicated than any time in history” is a meaningless sentence.

This guy also wrote an article about Type II diabetes some time ago, and his conclusion was “well, if y’all weren’t so fat we wouldn’t have this problem.”

He has a column in the second-largest newspaper in the USA?

I see people with all sorts of chronic disorders (depression, epilepsy, diabetes, asthma, &c) plus a whole bunch of journalists and physicians are dragging him out to the woodshed.

Great articles today in the Times’ Sunday Review on the political nihilist freakazoid behind Brexit (can you say “Eyes like a serial killer? I knew you could!”) and the genesis of the Iran nuclear deal and it’s rejection by Mango Metamussolini.

Well I managed to set off a firestorm in a FB group called “Mildly Offensive Fiber Artists Who Aren’t Bigots.” It’s a fiber artist group, but the group got into a huge discussion when both Michaels and Joann (two big box craft stores) said they would follow the laws of the states they were in and not ban open carry.

Well, I not only pointed out that businesses COULD ban open carry if they wanted to, but that if I saw anyone open carrying, and it was in public, I was calling 911 because I wasn’t going to make the decision whether a person was a good guy with a gun or a bad guy with a gun, I was going to let the police deal with it. In this, I got criticized by a couple of condescending gun nuts and I let them have it.

Listen to me…I am not the only one tired of you Second Amendment fanatics destroying the country so that you can walk around with your unlicensed, unregulated weapons of mass destruction. We are TIRED of this. And I WILL call the cops. I hope it’s on you, because you really need to understand how your clinging to your cold steel is putting the rest of us in danger.

And, for the record, I used to be a lawyer, so I know there’s a legal definition of “weapons of mass destruction.” I’m using the phrase in a more colloquial sense. I, and many others, are tired of the frequent massacres, the frequent “thoughts and prayers” and the absolute unwillingness to discuss how proliferation of guns is killing people.

I used to be a lawyer. We *never* had this discussion in law school, because it was thought in the 1980s that the government could regulate guns. But now, we’ve got the Heller case and it’s open season on people who just want to live our lives without the proliferation of guns everywhere. I just thank God often that Antonin Scalia is no longer with us, because that fool couldn’t make up his mind as to whether shoulder mounted rocket launchers could be banned due to the Second Amendment.

And this last to a gun nut who is all about the “I need mah gunz to protect me from the ebil gubmit.”

You’re a fool. Your gun is not going to help you if the military comes, because the military carries more firepower than you’ll ever be able to amass. And you can only use one of those guns at a time. Even if you got a 100 round canister to clip on to your gun (as the shooter in Dayton used), the military has better than that. They can take you out in no time flat. I am TIRED, VERY TIRED, of these dreams of people who think they’re going to lead some sort of revolution against an oppressive government when the government’s firepower would leave you a smoking hole in the ground.

For the record, I don’t want to ban guns. I want them regulated, people licensed and required to have insurance, like we have to carry for our cars. I’m tired of this Second Amendment Lets Us Carry Around Armaments That Would Make The Founders Dive For Cover attitude.

re: #29 Belafon

There’s a movie idea for Roland Emmerich.

When we moved from California, where I was born, to Pensacola, where my Da was a flight instructor at the Navy Flight School, I got the big three (mumps, chicken pox, and measles in quick succession, and in that order). The first two were annoying, the last was scary. I ended up in the tub in an ice bath in the middle of the night because I had spiked up to 106 degrees. The fever broke the next morning, but almost immediately after, I started bruising at the slightest bump and my parents, frantic, got me into the hospital, terrified that I had contracted leukemia.

They took a bone marrow sample while I was under local anesthesia (big fight, also ouch) and figured out I didn’t have a blood cancer, just a result of the measles killing my immune system. My Ma and Da were terrified. It took me four weeks to get to the point where my platelets started working again and I didn’t look like rare steak.

Why parents don’t vaccinate their kids is beyond me. It’s just so goddamned selfish and dangerous for their children.

Get a pump shotgun for home protection. Load it up with 2-shot shells. You won’t kill your neighbors next door, and chambering a round is usually enough to make people run away. As for wingnut protection, a simple bolt-action hunting rifle, holding 4 or 5 rounds will be sufficient. If you can’t hit a target with four rounds, you don’t need to own a gun.

Practice will be necessary to hone your craft, as in any endeavor. You really need to hit the people at which you are shooting. Otherwise, again, you don’t need to own a gun.

Brutal, but that is what rifles are made to to do. One shot, one kill.

Oh, and I don’t hunt game anymore. Got my meat hunting jollies out years ago. Too damn bloody for my taste.

I’m really starting to think that same sex marriage is the next, (non-immigrant, obvs,) big, meat-to-the-masses push to roll back the painfully slow progress we’ve made in the years since 1950. They’ll get to abortion shortly after, but given the freshness of the wounds and the fact that the issue is possibly even still less settled socially, I’m betting on rolling back all this super, K-RAZZY swj stuff is kinda a no brainier.

If parents are going to push their children to proselytise to other children about their parents about marriage, that leaves them open to atheist children to bring out the really fun stuff in the Bible like Ezekiel 23:20 (NIV, There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses) or Isaiah 45:7 (KJV, I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.)

Let their parents explain the genitals of donkeys and emissions of horses, and how it’s their own god which created evil.

Conservatives gotta conserve power, at the taxpayers’ expense, part twelve million:

County votes to proceed with suit vs. city over Festival gun-ban (goes to the Sandpoint, Idaho Reader, more at the link)

The Festival at Sandpoint had barely opened its 2019 season when open carry and concealed firearms advocates took aim at the event’s weapons ban.

“The Festival doesn’t have the right to negotiate away my right to carry a firearm on city property,” Selle Valley resident Craig Frick testified at the Aug. 7 Sandpoint City Council meeting.

Now, only a few weeks after the close of the summer concert series on Aug. 11, the city of Sandpoint is being sued by Bonner County over the Festival’s policy barring weapons.

I jusst fail to grasp this leap between “the right to bear arms” and “the right to unlimited access and unrestricted right to carry arms anywhere” and how restricting the latter is seen as an intolerable violation of the former.

I jusst fail to grasp this leap between “the right to bear arms” and “the right to unlimited access and unrestricted right to carry arms anywhere” and how restricting the latter is seen as an intolerable violation of the former.

The case centres on whether the leaser, a private organisation, can rent city land for a festival and still ban firearms at their festival. The festival itself notes most of the artists have contracts with the festival prohibiting firearms at their performances or booths.

The article also notes the county retained an outside law firm (at much greater expense) because they feel there would be a conflict-of-interest if they used the county attorney to proceed (follow the money, I’ll bet someone on that county commission has a connexion with the law firm).

The city asserts they did not set any restrictions on firearms and they are within the law. They also note there are several other organisations which lease land from the city, including a university hospital, which if this suit is found in favour of the county means they would have to permit firearms as well.

County residents are asking the county commission why they are spending money on this (it’s because you elected conservatives to your county commission - spending money on something like this means they don’t have to spend it on things benefiting the whole county, like education).

The point is conservatives want to carve out exceptions to laws and regulations for themselves but ignore that for others (minority rule).

Letters don’t seem to mean a whole bunch in English. Noah Webster tried to “Americanise” the language after the revolution, with words like “aker” and eliminating redundant letters like “c.”

There was success in getting rid of long “s.”

As ſuch, we aren’t burdened anymore with ligatures of double “ſ” or confuſion between “s” and “f.”

German, of course has der, die, das, dem and den, which can all be “the” depending on the gender and case, and ein, eine, einer, einem, einen and eines, which can likewise all be “a/an”.

And they are taught the rule of “a” before a consonant and “an” before a vowel, but then you have vowel dipthongs, an overlord but a one-seater, an uncle but a university.

Add the confusion that Germans use definite articles differently, such as die Natur for “nature”, or die Kunst which generally do not take an article, (in the nature of things or in the Art of the Deal….)

Get a pump shotgun for home protection. Load it up with 2-shot shells. You won’t kill your neighbors next door, and chambering a round is usually enough to make people run away. As for wingnut protection, a simple bolt-action hunting rifle, holding 4 or 5 rounds will be sufficient. If you can’t hit a target with four rounds, you don’t need to own a gun.

Practice will be necessary to hone your craft, as in any endeavor. You really need to hit the people at which you are shooting. Otherwise, again, you don’t need to own a gun.

Brutal, but that is what rifles are made to to do. One shot, one kill.

Oh, and I don’t hunt game anymore. Got my meat hunting jollies out years ago. Too damn bloody for my taste.

shotguns tend to be wildly underestimated as zombie defense. if I were having to deal with a zombie infestation, which has only ever happened twice in my life, I’m happy to say, I would go with a 20-gauge. minimal recoil. put the little bead on the end of the gun on the target, and blammo! end of zombie.

The GOP made Jimmy Carter sell his peanut farm; a truly blind trust wasn’t good enough for them.

The law does not apply to conservatism. Power does.

The law should be clear: upon election, President must sell every business they own to a third party (no relatives permitted) and put the money in a blind trust that is managed by a respectable third party. That would keep the billionaires and businessmen out of the Oval Office — which would be a true benefit for this nation.

Trump embodied the “government-should-be-run-like-a-business” school of thinking: elect an “outsider”, an anti-politician.

That image, combined with his media cachet, made him immune from gaffes that would have sidelined the campaign or even the career of any other professional politician.

And in this anti-politics-as-usual climate, his complete lack of any record of public service was a plus, whereas as for people like Hillary or Biden, it all served as baggage and a treasure trove of opportunities to find some embarrassing change of opinion on some matter.

And even after years in office, Trump is still seeling himself as an outsider and succeeding to a great extent.

From the previous thread:

r/yffinhell

Am I an addict if I cold turkey my epilepsy meds because sometimes they cause me negative side effects (notably one being the same as anti-depressants: slow me down or make me feel tired)? I guarantee I’ll have negative effects in about two or three days if I just quit taking my barbiturates.

How about my thyroid medication? How about my prescription calcium to stave off osteoporosis?

[Embedded content]

Holy hell that article is irresponsible. Shaming people for taking antidepressants will cause people who need them to quit, and cause others who might benefit from never starting. That sounds like it came right out of the big book of Scientology.

“Americans are more medicated than any time in history” is a meaningless sentence.

This guy also wrote an article about Type II diabetes some time ago, and his conclusion was “well, if y’all weren’t so fat we wouldn’t have this problem.”

He has a column in the second-largest newspaper in the USA?

I see people with all sorts of chronic disorders (depression, epilepsy, diabetes, asthma, &c) plus a whole bunch of journalists and physicians are dragging him out to the woodshed.

Greets and saluts from the gloriously sunny NYC metro area. Trump’s still at the dissembling and attacking those who aren’t slavishly fawning over the tangerine toddler. That means going after John Legend and Chrissy Teigen? Yeah, that’ll work out famously…. when you realize that the attack also means more people fixated on that and not the fact that the US changed its policy for admitting people from the Bahamas in the wake of Dorian.

They’re now demanding more info from those entering from the Bahamas, which is in the grips of a historic humanitarian crisis due to much of the country being absolutely devastated by Dorian. While Trump seeks to keep out those non-whites living there, Jose Andres and his fellow humanitarians are trying to provide food and shelter.

If you want to know what someone who should get a Nobel Prize looks like, that’s it. Trump thought he could get himself a Nobel Prize by cutting a deal and giving the Taliban a photo op at Camp David, even though the deal his underlings had done was vaporware and essentially gave the Taliban everything the Taliban had sought and the US got nothing but empty assurances.

Trump wanted the photo op at Camp David on the eve of the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks. For those who don’t remember, AQ had been exported from Saudi Arabia and found themselves a home in Afghanistan with the Taliban, and after the attacks, the US gave the Taliban the option to either be targeted by the US, or to give up AQ to the US. They chose the former, and 18 years later, we’re still at war in the region.

Trump thinks he can end that conflict, by giving the Taliban pretty much it’s wish list - because cutting a deal is more important than the specifics of the deal, and he inserted himself into the talks directly by claiming that there was enough to have a summit at Camp David, only to reneg on this because his feels were “hurt”.

This is Trump in a nutshell - a vain, fragile ego, reactionary know nothing who doesn’t care about the damage he’s doing to the US so long as he personally profits from the actions he takes.

Well I managed to set off a firestorm in a FB group called “Mildly Offensive Fiber Artists Who Aren’t Bigots.” It’s a fiber artist group, but the group got into a huge discussion when both Michaels and Joann (two big box craft stores) said they would follow the laws of the states they were in and not ban open carry.

Well, I not only pointed out that businesses COULD ban open carry if they wanted to, but that if I saw anyone open carrying, and it was in public, I was calling 911 because I wasn’t going to make the decision whether a person was a good guy with a gun or a bad guy with a gun, I was going to let the police deal with it. In this, I got criticized by a couple of condescending gun nuts and I let them have it.

And this last to a gun nut who is all about the “I need mah gunz to protect me from the ebil gubmit.”

For the record, I don’t want to ban guns. I want them regulated, people licensed and required to have insurance, like we have to carry for our cars. I’m tired of this Second Amendment Lets Us Carry Around Armaments That Would Make The Founders Dive For Cover attitude.

Cat survives being shot in face twice with rifle

Vespa is a happy cat now, but that wasn’t the case last week when police say Sean Stanford shot the feline twice in the face with a rifle.

“Super friendly cat and someone shoots it? I mean, that’s like, you are going to make me cry,” said Dr. Kathryn Stutzman-Rodriguez, one of the veterinarians who treated Vespa. “It’s so awful.”

The psycho Stanford has been charged with extreme animal cruelty. Quite possible that this will prevent a future mass shooting of humans.

fuck the people currently in power of this country
(they are not ‘running’ it. they are not ‘in charge’. they simply hold the reins of power)

These people WERE prepared. They had their passports, and their police printouts proving they’re not criminals, which for the last several decades has been the legal requirements for Bahamians to enter to the US.

Last night, in the middle of the night, the Stephen Miller CBP suddenly changed the rule. The new rule hasn’t been printed, or posted, anywhere. The old rule is STILL ON THE WALL AT THE FERRY TERMINAL.

Now, suddenly, the Bahamians need visas from the US embassy. And wouldn’t you know, by some unfortunate unpredictable fluke, the US embassy closed their visa office and isn’t taking appointments. Because, so very sad, the embassy grounds suffered hurricane damage.

Programs that provide a wide range of benefits to Defense Department’s civilian workforce were suddenly suspended last week, leaving hundreds of thousands of employees without access to services like mental health counseling and various forms of financial assistance.

Up until Sept. 1, the Department of Health and Human Services’ office of Federal Occupational Health (FOH) provided the Employee Assistance Program and a separate program, Wellness and Health Promotion to DoD’s more than 700,000 civilian workers via an interagency agreement. But those services ended, apparently without warning, during the Labor Day weekend.

The Defense Logistics Agency posted a similar message on its website: “Certain Employee Assistance Program (EAP) services provided by Federal Occupational Health (FOH) were unexpectedly suspended as of 9/1/2019 while DoD is implementing new contracting mechanisms. DoD is working to rectify the situation and allow EAP services to resume as soon as possible. If this is a medical emergency, please call 911 or your health care service provider.”

And that Crenshaw asshole - “If we have universal background checks, I won’t be able to loan guns to my friends who don’t own guns so they’ll be safe when they travel” - 1) why don’t they own guns? Is it because they’re not allowed to? and 2) How the hell did I manage to reach the age of 61, living in a major metro area most of that time, without carrying a gun?
