re: #4 Shiplord Kirel, Friend of Moose and Squirrel

We already have Trump…. the rest of the plagues are already upon us.

And those who reside in states where Robertson and his ilk hold the greatest sway have among the lowest life expectancies, higher per capita gun death rates, and high abortion rates (due to lower availability of birth control).

So… there’s that.

I hope it’s only the hardcore loonies who think Sharpiegate was a feature.
President Personality Disorder’s narcissistic inner-world seems to be where a lot of his supporters live these days, but I hope some see that any of his mistakes can spiral like when he doctored the map and had a federal agency lie for him. He can’t admit that he’s said something stupid and provably false, so anything can become a complete clown-show.

Magical thinker and terrorist pretends to have changed. At least he isn’t killing anyone (so he says).

I was a KKK warrior. Turning to God changed me and could help America stem mass shootings.

Mental health issues, extremism and assault weapons contribute to mass shootings, but an increasingly godless culture is the deeper underlying cause.

One thing Plame has going for her at this point is money. As of the last FEC deadline, she had outraised everyone else in the race with just over $236,000. Among those donating to her were Naomi Watts, who played Plame in Fair Game, the 2010 movie based on her life.

The national debt is at a record $22,531,817,693,305.66 and @realDonaldTrump wants to reduce tax revenue even further and put America in a deeper hole? If you think Republicans aren’t coming after the Social Security and Medicare benefits you paid for you’re as dumb as a Trump

while 22T is probably in the ballpark, wherever that number came from is pure bullshit

.66 cents on 22 trillion. no
even the hundreds thousands and likely millions arent accurate

Racism is the only reason — Bahamians have had visa free access to the US as long as they enter through one of a couple of airports in the Bahamas (which have US border patrol onsite where they clear US immigration on foreign soil), and have a current police clearance certificate from the Bahamas.

It seems to me that restationing some of the appropriate people from US Border Patrol in the Bahamas (who know any procedures) to seaports in Florida might be a more appropriate and humane way to solve the problem of Bahamians without visas. Visas which 99% of the time they didn’t need to enter the US anyways, especially in a situation where 70,000 Bahamians are now homeless due to the hurricane.

And maybe also keeping a line to the Royal Bahamian Police to see if any of the people in question are otherwise inadmissable to the US to satisfy any legitimate security concerns.

She’s coming out with a new book too…

Here’s the Amazon blurb (no reviews yet):

More than fifteen years after the events of The Handmaid’s Tale, the theocratic regime of the Republic of Gilead maintains its grip on power, but there are signs it is beginning to rot from within. At this crucial moment, the lives of three radically different women converge, with potentially explosive results.

Two have grown up as part of the first generation to come of age in the new order. The testimonies of these two young women are joined by a third voice: a woman who wields power through the ruthless accumulation and deployment of secrets.

As Atwood unfolds The Testaments, she opens up the innermost workings of Gilead as each woman is forced to come to terms with who she is, and how far she will go for what she believes.

ETA: I really really hope Hannah and Nichole are the young women in question.

As for the church, Evident Life, I posted on their FB asking if Democrats were allowed to gladhand the congregation. The answer is likely no, because Eric Jones is on record as being publicly anti-abortion.

I personally don’t think we should require people to aspire to something better, unless you count planting trees or taking care of the elderly or picking up litter as better. I think there are a lot of people doing jobs they don’t want to do, and not really aspiring to anything, because they just want to eat. I also think that keeps people who could be good at those jobs from getting them because the first set of people got lucky in who their parents were.

NY passed a law saying that basically it’s up to a woman and her doctor. In practice it meant that the state will not interfere when there’s a medical need to have an abortion late. Because no one is going to carry a fetus for 8 months and then just decide “Never mind.”

Per the “children seeing trains” discussion: I did an inventory and realize that I have never lived more than 2 miles from a train line. I’m pretty sure that’s true. Anyway, that meant that raising our kids in Indiana, Virginia, and Kentucky we didn’t just see trains, in the case of our rental homes in Virginia and Kentucky, we felt them every day and night. We often went to the tracks to watch them pass (and like so many families, we gathered Thomas the Tank Engine stuff when we could get ahold of it for cheap so that the kids could build their own). There’s a track about 1/2 mile from us now, but it seems it’s rarely used. It doesn’t matter, I doubt I could get my teenaged sons excited to see the trains these days.

re: #176 Belafon

I personally don’t think we should require people to aspire to something better, unless you count planting trees or taking care of the elderly or picking up litter as better. I think there are a lot of people doing jobs they don’t want to do, and not really aspiring to anything, because they just want to eat. I also think that keeps people who could be good at those jobs from getting them because the first set of people got lucky in who their parents were.

A classical Social Dem starting point for the relationship between work/pay/and social value is in Edward Bellamy (Looking Backwards) Don’t know if they teach that any more. It’s not perfect, but it’s a start, and shaped a generation.

Peterson then falsely suggested that Yang is from Taiwan (Yang’s parents are Taiwanese immigrants), which he wrongly asserted has been the location of massive anti-government protests. When Peterson was informed that he was confused and that the protests are actually taking place in Hong Kong, he responded that “they all look alike to me.”

Utah Outcasts reports on the Newsweek article I posted here a couple days ago, where a pastor’s wife grabbed a gun to shoot at a youth pastor’s wife over a t-shirt she was wearing. The pastor’s wife was arrested. They are going to give her a mental health evaluation (narrator: that’s not a mental illness).

She was a lawful gun owner without a record. X and Kyle speculate she’ll simply transfer ownership of her gun to her husband, thanks to the private sale loophole.

I have train tracks as close as 50 yards from where I sit here in my office. My road ends 3 houses down from me and picks up after the tracks, there is no crossing for vehicles. I can see the train from my front and back porches. They are not nearly as long as they used to be in my youth. Maybe 20 - 30 cars at most. And just on the other side of the tracks behind my house is the pretty much closed down old rail care manufacturing factory. With many switches meeting the main line coming from inside the facility. The plant is pretty much just down to fixing existing cars now, no new manufacturing.

re: #299 Decatur Deb

There are some loopholes, as well—non-availability, avoid giving offense, etc. They all have low dollar thresholds.

Gift to DoD employee from outside source

With some exceptions, you may not accept a gift from anyone who is giving the gift to you because of your Government position. Ask yourself if the gift would have been offered if you were not working for the Government. If the answer is no, then the gift is being offered because of your position.

Also, you may not accept a gift from a defense contractor. You also must turn down a gift from those who have interests that may be significantly affected by your official duties.

There are many exceptions to the gift prohibition rule and exclusions to the definition of a gift. The deskbook below summarizes these exceptions and exclusions in more detail.

The exceptions given:
You cannot give gifts or donations to or on behalf of an official superior. Civilians may not accept gifts from subordinates unless they are not in their direct chain of command and are strictly personal.

Military personnel may not accept gifts from foreign governments. The airport in question is owned by a foreign government.

DOD can give authority to military personnel to accept gifts of lodging or food while in a combat zone.

ogc.osd.mil

So there’s the loophole. We must declare war on Scotland.

If the company that owns the airport is a defense contractor, as it seems, they know the rules, and can get fined and sanctioned.

Not these days.

They know the loopholes, too. I was allowed to accept lunch in the cafeterias of Israeli Military Industries and other contractors at their locations in the boondocks. Nothing they served was likely to constitute a bribe.

The absolutely hilarious thing for me is watching the cognitive dissonance at work, at a government contractor job, of all of the Trump supporters who go through all of this training telling us that we can’t accept gifts or bribes, and that, when working with military or other government people, we cannot be seen as giving them some type of bribe. We are trained to not buy military people lunch, to not ride in a cab so that we don’t look like were paying for their fair, and not to accept or give anything more expensive than a ball point pen or a soda.

The only time I was in a position to accept any such gift was when I was a recruiter in Pittsfield, Mass.

I took a tour of the GE facility there at the invitation of the company, since that plant was a military contractor.

I took a tour of the plant, after which they offered me lunch. I politely declined, noting I had to get back to work.

You probably could have had the lunch, to make the work flow smoothly. If a Turkish base commander offers you lunch, you eat the damn lunch, or the DoD and DoS will re-educate you.

(You note it on your travel settlement, which used to make a difference when the per diem was broken down by meals.)

Every time I see Trump holding an old, wired phone to his ear I am reminded of this photo-op:

[Embedded content]

The caption for this creepy photo could be even now “See the power I have? I could’ve doinked her, but I didn’t.”

Trump and his cult’s entire understanding of the world can be summed up as the accumulation and exercise of power over others…with power over women being an ultimate expression of that power.

To Trump’s cult, women are possessions, most especially daughters and wives. Trump’s compulsive need to display his own sense of power is on full display even back then, using his own daughter as a prop for his own compulsive need to display sexual dominance. Women are tools, at best in his world. Pets to be procured and tossed aside when their looks first start to go. Ivanka better pray that 45 years old never happens while he is still alive.

Kind of a Catch-22 test you’ve set up there. You’re saying Ken shouldn’t have reported something clearly in the public interest until the situation existed where revealing it would have guaranteed Trump’s removal, but we may never get to that point without it having been reported.

At the end of the day Ken isn’t responsible for maintaining the cover identity of foreign spies living under their own name that the CIA has expatriated to the US because they couldn’t trust the President not to burn them.

A GE plant in this country knew what it was doing. Anymouse was correct to decline it. That is exactly the sort of thing the rules are there for.

The place I work at has an entire Air Force division on site. There are significant rules in place just to keep it from looking like we’re favoring each other.

I imagine that’s the case for most companies which do business with the military or are considering it.

That’s not so much because they care if the military person gets in trouble, but if the information gets out the company can lose their contract.

A Navy recruiter really isn’t in the position of influencing large government contractors or the Navy. The point is the appearance of impropriety (and in the case of a recruiter, military services really want recruiters to be paragons of ethics, since they are the people the military needs to find applicants).

re: #325 Belafon

This is all on Trump.

That we had to extract the asset in order to prevent his almost-hundred-percent-likelihood of being burned by Trump is on Trump.

But what exercised me to tweet what I did was that Dilanian specifically said that Putin lets exfiltrated assets live lives of quiet exiled anonymity, but only if their existence doesn’t become a matter of public record.

When it does, he dispatches an assassination team within the week, as happened in Britain with the Skripals.

Though I’ll admit, my anger might be slightly misplaced. I’m not sure he was the first to report the extraction, so it might be someone at CNN I want boiled in oil instead for effectively murdering this man and whoever might happen to run into the poison they use on him after it’s done its intended job.

Trump Wanted a Photo Op With The Taliban And Raged When He Didn’t Get It

JM Ashby, on bobcesca.com

Over the weekend, Trump claimed that he canceled a secret meeting with the Taliban that was going to be hosted at Camp David on or just before the anniversary of 9/11, and while that sounds bad, the truth is somehow worse.

He’s already said he would go after the EU to make up the difference because “they’re not paying enough for their own defence.”

I imagine when Brussels got that the laughter was quite wild.

Roughly speaking (SIPRI figures):

US: 650 billion
China: 250 billion
Saudi: 68 billion
India: 66 billion
France: 64 billion
Russia: 61 billion
United Kingdom: 50 billion
Germany: 49 billion

So, basically, the EU is outspending everyone except the US and China.
