So been riding Lime scooters for months. Last mile home thing after the subway. So there I was riding down an alley when I steered away from a car but caught a pothole. A tiny bit of airborne then hit the pavement. Thankfully got my hands up so my face did not take much of a hit. But damn pretty sure I cracked an upper rib bone with my forearm. Ouch.

Wow. That riding down an alley part—this is something I don’t recommend at all! The brother of a friend of mine was biking down an alley in Tempe during the middle of summer. He hit something, sailed over the handlebars and was completely knocked out. He lay in the alley for hours and got burns all over the exposed parts of his body (not to mention the conked head). Someone finally went down the alley and found him, called 911 and he was taken to the hospital, where he stayed for weeks getting fixed up.

Khal Wimpo (the extinguisher of tiki torches)  Sep 14, 2019 • 1:58:04pm

So Stage 1 is completed.

After 30 years in Los Angeles, Mrs. Khal & I have upped stakes and moved back to our ancestral homeland, the Upper Midwest.

The last two weeks have been a hellish blur of throwing everything we own into cardboard boxes during some of the hottest, muggiest weather I’ve ever known in L.A.

But I’m here now, although the trucks with my stuff on them are still in transit. Our families (the reason behind the move) are delighted, but it’s a helluva change. I will forever miss my little orange trees, my lemon trees, the peach and pomegranate trees, and especially the 30-foot avocado tree that gave me hundreds of avocados all spring and summer.

Come to think of it, the idea of Deep-State conspiracy theories shows a typical level of RWNJ self-awareness

Joker is on its way to educate moviegoers about how disaffected young men are driven to lives of violent crime, but for a less comic book-y depiction of incel derangement, look no further than Cuck, Rob Lambert’s drama (in theaters Oct. 4) about a preternatural loser primed to explode in conservative-terrorist fashion. It’s a character study determined to provide insight into the types of racist, sexist lunatics who spread fear and hatred via the barrel of a gun and, at least as a portrait of what makes these individuals tick, it’s as timely as it is depressing—and horrifying.

Before it heads down more contrived avenues that exacerbate its dearth of surprises, Cuck crafts an authentic vision of sexually aggrieved white nationalist psychosis. The crazy person in question is Ronnie (Zachary Ray Sherman), a California twentysomething who lives at home caring for his mom (Sally Kirkland, crowing like a prejudiced, pious loon) and, more frequently still, sitting in his dark bedroom, decorated with American flags and pamphlets for the military that won’t let him in because he failed his psych test. Habitually situated shirtless in front of his laptop, pizza and soda always within reach, Ronnie watches online video after online video of right-wing commentators—including his favorite star, Chance Dalmain (Travis Hammer)—ranting about the dangers of liberalism, immigration and diversity.

Aren’t there some people who have multiple hunting licenses? One for deer, one for geese, one for bear, etc. Or 4 different licenses for four different states. Or one for rifle, and one for bow-hunting. One for Spring, one for Fall. etc.

re: #5 Khal Wimpo (the extinguisher of tiki torches)

So Stage 1 is completed.

After 30 years in Los Angeles, Mrs. Khal & I have upped stakes and moved back to our ancestral homeland, the Upper Midwest.

The last two weeks have been a hellish blur of throwing everything we own into cardboard boxes during some of the hottest, muggiest weather I’ve ever known in L.A.

But I’m here now, although the trucks with my stuff on them are still in transit. Our families (the reason behind the move) are delighted, but it’s a helluva change. I will forever miss my little orange trees, my lemon trees, the peach and pomegranate trees, and especially the 30-foot avocado tree that gave me hundreds of avocados all spring and summer.

I don’t know what stages have been completed, but I now live in Oregon with Mr. w, and no longer live in New Mexico. Mr. w drove the Ford Ranger, with the cats and me. Mr. somebody else drove the U-Haul with almost all our stuff that they didn’t want us to leave in NM. I know we haven’t completed all the steps, like finding a job and a place to live, but we made it back to the state where we met a few decades ago, fwiw.

Thanks for posting this, I had not seen it before!

That clip did push my history nerd button, though.

Yes, in general the British Army, during the American Revolution, pretty much could carry an attack when and where they wanted. And, unless the American forces were trained and experienced regulars, or well entrenched, the Brits often went in with bayonets and did not even bother to stop and open fire.
(Effective range for most smoothbore flintlock armed, poorly trained and poorly led militia, with poorly cared for black powder, was probably closer to 50 yards than the several hundred shown in the clip.)

A good book on this is
With Zeal and With Bayonets Only: The British Army on Campaign in North America, 1775-1783 by Mathew H Spring.
It was recommended to me by the historians at Saratoga National Battlefield Park.

The Americans developed multiple ways to counter to this.

For example, there is a famous story about the Battle of Cowpens. The American Commander, Daniel Morgan went to his militiamen and got them to agree to fire two volleys before they ran away. They agreed and honored their commitment.

Morgan had posted several American battle lines and he put his regulars in the final line. By the time the British had fought their way through the earlier lines, they were exhausted and disorganized.

The Minutemen were a small portion of the militia to begin with, and they received just enough training to make them usable as a military force in the event of a sudden attack. But when they were organized, the biggest threat most people saw was attacks by Indians or slave revolts, not a war with the Crown. By the time the war had really begun in earnest, those members of the militia who hadn’t gone on to join the Continental Army were little more than local police forces.

How to combat the anti-vaxxer message

They responded by saying they weren’t anti-vaccine, but they didn’t think they needed to move along on the schedule the medical community was recommending. Our time ran short and they left without a clear plan as to when they would catch their daughter up on her shots.

The parents of that toddler aren’t part of the “antivax” group waging a continuous war against progress and enlightenment.

Rather, these were what the medical community calls Vaccine Hesitant Parents (VHPs):
a middle ground of caring, pragmatic parents who don’t reject vaccines outright, but worry about them. Some worry because of something they’ve heard from other parents or because they read an account of a vaccine-damaged child online. Some may be dizzy from one too many Google searches that land on confusing and contradictory figures on the value and safety of vaccines.

Fuck ‘em. Of course those parents are “anti-vax”. Just because they don’t post frothing idiocies on twitter doesn’t make then not anti-vax. What makes them anti-vax is that they don’t accept what medical science says about vaccines.

What CNN is doing is akin to saying old-earth creationists aren’t creationists because they are not YECs.

I have that book. It is outstanding. Going straight to the charge was a winning move for the the Brits time and time again…..but they found at Guilford Courthouse that the First Maryland was willing to fix bayonets and charge as well…oops. Not to mention that the 1st Guards and attached Hessians were kept in a see saw battle by *militia* for over an hour…which is absolutely nuts. The militi in the far south of the battle didn’t not leave the field until they lost their cavalry support and were charged by Tarelton’s dragoon’s.

When it comes to Kavanaugh reminds me of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice Orie who was convicted of bribery and sentenced to jail. She refused to resign from the bench and the Republican controlled legislature refused to impeach and remove her so the seat stayed vacant until her term expired and a Democrat was elected to replace her.

I can conceive of Kavanaugh going the same route, indicted, convicted, sent to jail, Nancy passes the impeachment resolution in the house and Republicans voting Not Guilty in lockstep to keep the seat vacant.

This is why the Democrats have NO choice but to expand the size of the court from 9 to at least 15 in 2021.

But the Republican Presstitutes ignore Alex and continue to kiss Trump’s flabby ass!

re: #189 jaunte

Jewish monument in #Ukraine vandalised, and (Jewish) Pres Zelensky threatened in a note. It’s convenient for many in the West to say Russia created a fake sense of anti-Semitism there, but actions like this belie that.

Russian/Ukrainian/Polish anti-Semitism was a major reason for the first wave of Jewish emigration to America at the turn of the 19/20th centuries…

re: #194 jaunte

My concern is that Kavanaugh, knowing his lies, will resign soon allow Trump to appoint a replacement. Every single Trump appointment to the SC damages this country for decades; if Trump wins in 2020, this country is finished, but if he loses, I want a Democrat to select Kavanaugh’s successor. And that can happen only if we wait to launch an impeachment inquiry against him.

This Kavanaugh bullshit is so typical of the Republicans. Power at absolutely any cost. And Cruz this morning on Stephanopolus blathering about the hearing and Dr. Ford, skipping over the fact that no other victims were allowed to testify, or were even interviewed by the FBI.

And anyone else think the US staged the attack on the Saudi pipeline? Trump really is determined to get his war. I don’t believe for a second that he and Bolton disagreed about lifting sanctions.

How about Putin or Netanyahu trying to get the US into a war with Iran? Bolton has always been a warmonger but I don’t really see Trump being enthusiastic about this kind of venture. I may be totally wrong about this but this doesn’t seem like the Trump style of villainy.

Kavanaugh considers himself the victim here. You could tell when he gave his testimony. There’s nothing short of Impeachment in the House and 67 votes in the Senates that are going to remove him from that seat.

The staging could also mean a wink wink nudge nudge to Israel. I don’t see Russia really having anything to do with this, other than having their stooge as US President.

“Drone strikes” was the first thing reported. A rather quick explanation if you ask me.

Too much wishful thinking. Even in best case scenario, the bastard will walk, might lose most of his fortune but will be able to recover it with book deals and appearances.

Of course, everyone associated with him would likely lose everything, that has to be seen as the positive side of it.

No, I don’t, in this case. The type of attack actually did real damage to something, and is too small scale for US type military thinking. In the first case, it’s unlike the stuff that was attempting to be pulled with the Iranians because, as I said, real damage was done. And we’re not really thinking drones as an offensive weapon. Why would we need all those F-35s?

Yep, that’s Duluth. White Bread central that is barely willing to admit to the evil of the 1920 lynch mob:

On June 15, 1920, three African-American circus workers, Elias Clayton, Elmer Jackson, and Isaac McGhie, suspects in an assault case, were taken from jail and lynched by a white mob of thousands in Duluth, Minnesota. Rumors had circulated that six African Americans had raped and robbed a nineteen-year-old woman. A physician’s examination of her subsequently found no physical evidence of rape.

1920 Duluth Lynchings

So, yeah, it’ll never be listed as a hate crime.

That’s a good point: those ludicrously mismanaged “mine” attacks on the tankers in the Persian Gulf were on a fairly small-scale level: the Yemen pipeline attacks seem way more serious: though. More so, IMO, than the Saudis are likely to stage as a false-flag provocation.
