Well, it’s bad, but it would be a thousand times worse if they said “Yes, sir.”

Like I’ve said before, take Montana, put another Montana under it, and another Montana under that, and you’ve got an area equal to Iran. Now put three Rocky Mountains ranges through it. Easy to invade, yes? No. Easy to get armor through, yes? Oh, hell no.

Fighting Iran in a land war would be worse than Afghanistan, where empires go to die.

You want another forever war? There it is.

And this was when my comment went tits up. I tried to edit it six times and pffft.

The point was supposed to be that if we still are asshole-buddies with the Saudis we should just shoot ourselves.in the head. They are not our friends. They, like DRumpf, only care about the Family, the Saudi’s, which control the oil.

Hi. We’re back from Colorado.

After the Mercedes-Benz dealer did a $500 walletectomy for car repairs after the hailstorm (and ordered another $1,100 worth of parts for a second round), we went to Colorado Springs to visit for a couple days with a friend of my wife.

We got home very late last night.

Today, we had to go to the store, but US-26 is torn up for construction between Lisco and Bridgeport and down to one lane (a distance of about thirty miles, which means long waits for the pilot car).

We decided instead to take the back road to Oshkosh (thirteen cattle guards over sand roads in Garden County) to go to the superette there.

My wife is now making Cincinnati chili (I misspelt the city, and spell check offered “incineration” for the correction).

No kidding. It’s not like the DOD doesn’t keep track of how much ammunition it has.

There was something that came up a while ago about the DOD saying it didn’t have a full stock of bombs for the Air Force and Navy, but that has been corrected.

If the military was low on ammunition, the DOD would be all over Capitol Hill raising a stink about funding for more. “Ammunition” refers to small arms, not things like artillery ordinance or rockets or whatnot.

Another KY School Found a Clever Way to Get Around the “In God We Trust” Law (Goes to Hemant Mehta’s Friendly Atheist blog).

First there was a school district which distributed blown-up images of the back of a one dollar bill.

Then there was a school (named Lincoln) which posted an oversize image of the obverse of a Lincoln cent (which contains the phrase).

Now another school has posted a poster with a short history of the phrase “In God We Trust” as used on coinage and currency. Since that phrase appears on the poster, it complies with the law.

It would seem Kentucky school districts are tired of the GOP’s false piety in answer to school shootings.

As predicted, the woman who shut down her event hall and Facebook page after a firestorm of controversy where she claimed interracial marriages are un-Biblical is back in business.

She also has a new Facebook page and it’s also back in business.

She explains (without self-awareness apparently) that after reading the Bible, interracial marriage is not prohibited there. As such her original claim (her Christian faith was why she didn’t allow an interracial couple to rent her hall) is a lie: She never actually read her Bible. It’s good old fashioned Mississippi racism.

To all who have been following the video posted of not allowing biracial marriages in our business please read the content of this message it is very important… as a child growing up in Mississippi our racial boundaries that were unstated were that of staying with your own race. This was never verbally spoke, but it was understood in order to preserve the white identity. On Saturday my husband asked me to show him in the Bible where it was located as to the content concerning biracial relationships. I studied for a minute and began to think about the history of my learning this and where it came from. I was unable to recall instances where the Bible was used giving a verse that would support my decision… after searching Saturday evening, Saturday night, most of the day Sunday and sitting down with my pastor Sunday night after church I have come to the conclusion my decision which was based on white preservation subliminally taught by my elders. I have, for many years, stood firm on my Christian faith not knowing that biracial relationships were NEVER mentioned in The Bible!

Mozilla some time ago deactivated the “Firefox Personas” add-on when they created a new theme system.

I was left saddened as the themes I liked for Firefox went dead and I had plain and uninteresting single colours.

I found this evening the old Personas themes have now been ported over to the new system, so I resurrected Groovy Blue, Dark Victorian Rose, and Nebraska’s Chimney Rock themes.

Well, at least Trump isn’t on your ballot.

Here in the land of sandhills, the weather radio just noted in our climate summary that we are about 4” above average for rainfall on the year (normal is 16”, we’re at 20”).

Despite that, the North Platte River continues to fall after record snowfall in Wyoming last winter, which caused Wyoming to open its dams and flood us downstream here. We are now well below flood stage, and the Beerline Irrigation Canal here in town has fallen to normal levels (last month it was only a couple inches from overflowing and flooding every house on this street).

There are an awful lot of conservatives who seem to believe their propaganda about liberals being afraid of fighting (except when they’re trying to claim things like “leftist violence”), or liberals are afraid of guns.

It would seem most liberals would view violence as a failure of the political system, not as a fear of self-protection or firearms.

As far as a general strike goes, I imagine if one of sufficient size and effect on the economy could be organised, I would imagine big businesses and Wall Street would be putting a whole lot of pressure on their bought-and-paid for Republican politicians to cave to end that (as it cuts into profits).

There is a point that a lot of those territories had been only recently occupied by Poland at the end of WW1 and the Russian Civil War and the Russo-Polish war.

re: #86 Belafon

National polls came to the same conclusion that voters did - they favored Clinton and she won the popular vote by nearly 3+ million.

The problem is the distribution of those votes. It fell to a handful of voters in a handful of states, and that distribution meant Trump winning where it counted - the EC.

That’s why national polls are good at sentiment broadly, but those who want to know if Trump is in trouble need to focus at state level polls to see which ones are trending which way.

This isn’t rocket science. It’s how the US electoral system works (or doesn’t). Trump lies incessantly about this because he knows most people only recall the outcome, not how the votes distributed nationally, or that the polls were really spot on.

SRSLY: 32 years, and they still can’t let go of the fact that one of their Original Wingnut Idols got rejected for SCOTUS (after utterly-fucking-due process) because of public political agitation against his nomination - actually worse, public political agitation against his extremist ideology -and have spent all the intervening time picking at that sore, and obsessing on their butthurt-justifying mythologizing.

By my count, between Bork’s rejection by the Senate on 10/23/1987 and his demise on 12/19/2012 , it was 9,189 days: every single one of which the country should have been thankful that that inflexible crank wasn’t sitting on the nation’s High Court.

SRSLY: 32 years, and they still can’t let go of the fact that one of their Original Wingnut Idols got rejected for SCOTUS (after utterly-fucking-due process) because of public political agitation against his nomination - actually worse, public political agitation against his extremist ideology, and have spent all the intervening time picking at that sore, and obsessing on their butthurt-justifying mythologizing.

By my count, between Bork’s rejection by the Senate on 10/23/1987 and his demise on 12/19/2012 , it was 9,189 days: every single one of which the country should have been thankful that that inflexible crank wasn’t sitting on the nation’s High Court.

Have you guys looked at the images of damage at the Saudi oil facility? Very precise hits on particular kinds of equipment. To me, impossible without nation state help. Shows how drones can attack with near impunity. Pay little attention to the direction of impacts. It’s not a clue as to who did it.

Pretty scary that we could have an energy crisis with Trump in office, in a trade war and cyber war at election time.

Fuck this fucking hateful administration of fucking assholes.

Newsweek - An asylum seeker said he and his child were kidnapped and held for ransom by Mexican cartel members just hours after asylum policies enacted by the Trump administration forced them to return to Mexico under “protection protocols.”

The man, who is one of 42,000 asylum seekers sent back to Mexico by the Trump administration since mid-July, told VICE News that corrupt Mexican immigration officials and uncaring U.S. Border Patrol agents work in tandem to deliver destitute migrants to cartels.

VICE reported on the story of “David” who, along with his young child, were forced into trucks and abducted just a few hours and miles away from the border crossing where he’d hoped to seek asylum in the United States. After being promised shelter as they awaited an asylum court hearing, David and his child were sent back to a bus station and rounded up by waiting cartel coyotes.

Under the Trump administration’s “Migrant Protection Protocols,” asylum seekers are sent back to Mexico as they await legal proceedings. As they wait, migrants often become targets of the cartels, which kidnap thousands of them, the Mexican National Human Rights Commission says.

“I am terrified to be here,’ said another asylum seeker, Claudia López Romero, in an interview with VICE.

David recounted how dozens of women and children were “treated like pieces of meat” as their Nuevo Laredo cartel kidnappers extorted thousands of dollars from their relatives working for minimum wages.

“[The U.S. border patrol agents] told us they were going to bring us to a shelter,” David told VICE News, just a few hours before the cartel abducted he and his child. “They lied.”

Something doesn’t add up here. Why would the warheads fly over Kuwait to attack this oil processing facility, when that would also indicate that the warhead flew over Iraq. Or was there a waypoint over Kuwait, and it hugged the coast?

And for all the Saudi spend on military gear, it looks like this was a huge fail to keep their key refinery infrastructure secure from attack.

Everything about this has a whiff of wag the dog.

Do the Houthis have the capabilities to carry out this kind of attack. Do the Iranians?

Okay, here it is a nutshell: Dudebro kid asks Harris about how she would handle “so called Assault Rifles” while protecting the Second Amendment. (The kid actually air quoted when he said “Assault rifles”)

Harris said that if congress won’t act she will resort to executive action to put in place a ban on the import of Assault weapons and explore implementing a buyback program for those already on the streets. She stressed the importance of doing the Buyback “right” and not making it seem like a gun grab.

She then asked the audience of college students how many had been through active shooter drills in school. Everyone raised their hand. Harris then said this frustrates her because students should be: “More concerned with filling your heads with math and science than worrying about someone who’s going to run up into the classroom with a gun”.

She reiterates that if she is elected President and congress does not act on Gun legislation within 100 days she will begin taking executive action to ban import of Assault weapons and implement Universal background checks, adding, in reference to Congressional inaction on guns: “I’m done” (i.e. done sitting around waiting for something to change).

Then the audience applauds wildly.

Agreed, I have avoided it for a couple of years now, but Picard is just too important to me to pass up.

What’s the cost of All-Access, compared to waiting a few months and buying a DVD set?

It’s supposed to be leaves, but I guess that from the side it kinda looks like fish. :)

The fish I’m seeing is behind the loaf; the Pepperidge Farm goldfish-colored table part, poking out from the towel.

re: #167 Eclectic Cyborg

Okay, here it is a nutshell: Dudebro kid asks Harris about how she would handle “so called Assault Rifles” while protecting the Second Amendment. (The kid actually air quoted when he said “Assault rifles”)

Harris said that if congress won’t act she will resort to executive action to put in place a ban on the import of Assault weapons and explore implementing a buyback program for those already on the streets. She stressed the importance of doing the Buyback “right” and not making it seem like a gun grab.

She then asked the audience of college students how many had been through active shooter drills in school. Everyone raised their hand. Harris then said this frustrates her because students should be: “More concerned with filling your heads with math and science than worrying about someone who’s going to run up into the classroom with a gun”.

She reiterates that if she is elected President and congress does not act on Gun legislation within 100 days she will begin taking executive action to ban import of Assault weapons and implement Universal background checks, adding, in reference to Congressional inaction on guns: “I’m done” (i.e. done sitting around waiting for something to change).

Then the audience applauds wildly.

Well, everyone applauded except for the Trumper that asked the question, who sat their looking like Judge Alito at an Obama SOTU address.

re: #159 danarchy

I expect this story to make the right wing rounds today.

washingtonexaminer.com

See AR-15’s are needed for self defense! /////

There are a lot of unanswered questions about this incident. The story is that the three now-deceased teens approached the residents in their own front yard, attempted to rob them, and then opened fire. How were the residents able to avoid being shot if the robbers confronted them and fired first? It’s possible of course that they just ran and the bandits missed but it’s something that needs to be determined.
How was one of them able to get his rifle and shoot the three while they remained in the yard? It might have been leaning against the front door for all we know, but this is something we need to find out.
Was it really an “assault weapon,” as described by a neighbor who witnessed the incident? Any scary looking black gun is an “assault weapon” to a lot of people Police have yet to specifically identify the weapon.

Of course ammosexuals will betray their limited intelligence by trumpeting this incident from the mountain-tops, as proof that “assault weapons,” semi-auto rifles with large mags, are somehow essential for self defense. If you really have to use deadly force, you will use whatever weapons come to hand. That might be a rock, a club, or an AR-15 if you have one. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t alternatives (pump shotguns for example) that would work at least as well for that purpose without presenting such a massive risk to society.

I’m paying $5.99/month, but I’m on the cheap plan with commercials. There’s a slightly more expensive commercial-free option. A season of DISCOVERY ran 14-15 episodes, so about 18-24 dollars in the cheap plan, assuming no mid-season break vs. $29.99 for the DVD set at the evil Wallyworld.

Or you could subscribe at the end of the series and binge-watch, then cancel, as a lot of viewers do.

Shiplord Kirel, Friend of Moose and Squirrel  Sep 17, 2019 • 9:49:18am

I really think the ammosexual idea of “self defense” involves shooting at greater ranges than a shotgun could manage, and at a lot more targets than you could hit with 5 or 6 rounds before a prolonged reloading process. This matches the idea of shooting into a mob of “others” marching down the road to loot suburbia “when the welfare checks stop.”

“And on the Eighth Day, God gave Adam an assault rifle, with a telescopic sight and a high capacity magazine. ‘This is your right, my son. Use it to mow down your enemies and terrorize brown people!” Adam cocked the rifle, and it was good.

And we’re at T minus one hour and 50 minutes till the polls close about two hours until the initial Israeli election results are announced (the announced “sample” is usually accurate when it comes to the major political parties, morning results often change things for the smaller ones, especially those that are near the election threshold needed for parliamentary acceptance.
Contrary to initial estimates, turnout has so far been HIGHER than earlier this year, and it seems the final turnout may just clock at the highest since the 1980s if the day-long trend continues.
