Ahh. The scent of a new thread. And an upbeat story on jury duty. Yes I said jury duty. When you read what is at this link you will understand.

just a general comment from the last thread re kavanaugh, and maybe even trump:

a dem trifecta is probably not in the cards for us (possible, not likely)

veto proof majorities are an even further stretch

and even if we had both, not all dems think alike about things - we are not monolithic. we dont all want the same things or see things the same way.

- the strongest tool for us, right now is to be the champions of exposure of facts to the light of day
- it is still important for accountability and justice, even if ultimate ‘justice’ cannot be done
- and even if it turns out that’s all the justice we get in the end

we are the party of liberty and justice for all
all means all or it doesnt mean anything

re: #3 Backwoods_Sleuth

During the financial crisis, I worked with families facing foreclosure and remember all too well their pain and fear. The Trump Admin.’s rollback of market protections is an affront to those families; I won’t stand idly by.

they call it “restoring a robust and flexible free market”

I’m 97% sure I saw Dr Ford in a market here in Hawaii. It was just after the confirmation and was just dying down and I pulled out my phone to confirm it was her and she was looking at me suspiciously. I turned to the side to not look obvious. Once I confirmed she was gone as she paid for her goods. I wanted to tell her she was a hero and not deserving of all the crap but she was gone.

I still believe that, if Democrats manage to get a majority in both Houses and the Presidency, a Democratic DOJ could find evidence that would persuade Kavanaugh to resign. Remember: the DOJ ruling is that the federal government cannot indict a sitting President (wonder how that would stand up in Court?) but it says nothing about indicting a sitting member of SCOTUS.

We are in Somewhere, Oklahoma. The trip has been good, except for the two -hour delay on I 40 when an 18 wheleler burned to the ground. One night we camped in a spot that had neither wifi nor cell bars, That’s what they call “boondocking” now.

In an Arkansas Walmart checkout line a white family of 4 went through 3 funding modes—SNAP, debit card, and pocket change—to make a small basket of groceries (heavy on diet soda).

Our picnic table at this campground had a painted rock that made its way here from some kids in New Hampshire. We facebooked them, telling them it will go with us to Meteor Crater and the Grand Canyon to see the Mother Rocks. Then we will turn it loose.

Not the same thing. I mean…look how good GOPers have been at forcing everyone to accept their framing. They, as Karl Rove so infamously put it, “create their own reality” (of course it helps that they’re playing to classic power sources like wealth and white supremacy, but even though it’s harder for Dems, it’s definitely not impossible - there’s a reason AOC has perhaps the highest profile of any new member of Congress, and why Fox news/GOPers perceive her as such a threat and go out of their way to demonize her. It’s not because they think they can use her to make the Dem party look bad, it’s because they fear her true message could erode their own base).

I mean…yeah, Thomas has a lame reputation and still has Anita Hill hanging over his head.

But how much of that matters when he still has his seat at the bench, that he’s got one of the most powerful voices in determining jurisprudence and constitutionality in the country? And nothing about his reputation has tempered that. That’s what I’m afraid of with Kavanaugh. The allegations need to be investigated for sure, and he needs to be pressured, but again, you can’t shame the shameless, and barring a fucking absolute homerun in 2020, we’re never getting rid of him.

Good points. I was just making the point that people all the time compromise their principles for various reasons because there are people with power over them that can change their lives.

It’s also why minorities are still backing Biden even though I think there are other candidates that will do a better job. They want any friendly person in the White House, because it’s a whole lot better than what we have now, and the reality is that there are far too many other people they have to care about the opinions of to get help.

Definitely.

And there is a reason why Biden is considered more electable.

Because two thirds of the under-30 year olds won’t vote.

So all those polls which show Bernie and Warren so popular with young people… don’t matter, because two thirds of those young people won’t show up to vote in the election.

Which is why Iowa was so important in 2008, and will be again next year. If you can win in a white people state, you definitely have a better chance in others.

My wife found a website that showed the three most common surnames in the US as a whole, and then by state. For the US as a whole, the three most common are Smith, Williams, and Johnson. They are also the three most common surnames in Iowa and Kentucky. The three most common surnames in California are all Latino, and in Texas, Smith was the only non-Latino and it was at number two.

The candidate will likely be determined on that day.

Perhaps that is why the number of undeclareds are declining in SD county, because people want to vote in the primary for the Democratic candidate?

Bernie will have to swing a couple of hundred thousand undeclared to Democrat here in SD, if he is going to win the county. My bet is that Harris, Warren, and Biden will be the most popular here, followed by Beto, as far as the long time Democrats are concerned.

All those undeclareds who are too good for the Democratic Party, who think Bernie is the hot thing… I don’t know if they will re-register in time.

Gotta hand it to the Houthis (and their Iranian backers) by striking the SA refinery operations in such a thorough, devastating way, they’ve made it clear how risky a real war with Iran would be to the global oil economy.

re: #90 goddamnedfrank

Gotta hand it to the Houthis (and their Iranian backers) by striking the SA refinery operations in such a thorough, devastating way, they’ve made it clear how risky a real war with Iran would be to the global oil economy. Trump is in a no win situation of his own making, having to choose between looking incredibly weak or destroying the one remaining leg still propping up his utter cluster-fuck of a presidency.

“You know, a nice side benefit of enacting reusable energy measures would be less dependency on corrupt Middle East countries.”

All Trump hears is “Corrupt Middle East countries. My kind of people.”

re: #91 Belafon

Do you have data on this, so I can show it to people?

It was mostly tongue-in-cheek and anecdotal. However, looking at the USDA numbers, we’re projected to be down about 500 million bushels from 2018. That sounds like a lot, but the 2018 harvest was 14.4 billion bushels, so it’s a drop of about 3.5%.

We’ll have to. We don’t have enough corn to make ethanol, at least, not this year. Thanks, global warming!

I thought the problem with ethanol was Trump has given the oil companies so many ethanol waivers that ethanol refineries have been shutting down.

See my #94 above - if there is, in fact, a problem with ethanol production, that would be it. The corn harvest is going to be down, but it’s not such a precipitous drop as you might expect given the number of fields left unplanted.

The ghost of Jamal Khashoggi attacked them. Would work as a headline for the Enquirer.

Just btw: I have been looking all over the Intertoobz for an answer to this question, and so far been unsuccessful. Does anyone here know exactly what type of “drone” was supposedly used in the Saudi oilfield attacks?

So far, all I have been able to find in the usual sources is “drone attack”, which to me can mean anything from a Reaper-class UAV launching a heavy-duty ASM, to an Amazon-delivery-type buzzer loaded with a couple of kilos of C4. I’m sure the answer is somewhere inbetween: but I haven’t been able to find it….

Thanks. It’s like I thought: hard to tell from those pics (no scale) but it looks like a mid-size UAV. And “domestically produced” (knocked together in somebody’s garage?).
But good enough, I guess, do do the job nearly as well as our $50 million+ high-tech wonders.

I haven’t seen photos of the Saudi oilfield damage but, I miss a lot.
