Gillian Welch and Dave Rawlings are two of the best songwriters out there. It’s not just the lyrics but the music too. Love that Chris and Becca covered this for Gillians birthday.

What’s so funny about this whole “Trump was joking about China” talking point is that we ALL know that within 2 days Trump will again say China should investigate and that when pressed about whether he is joking he will deny it. These dumbass Republicans keep falling for the same thing every single time and are incapable of learning.

One of the benefits of being old in Kentucky is that I get senior discount on my property taxes since I’ve become “of age”.
My farm is 190 acres: taxes for the year are $358.46.
That’s about half what they were before I got the discount two years ago and lightyears less than the $7500+ I was paying for a ~7 acre fruit & veggie truck farm in Illinois when I sold it 25 years ago.

I am just down to my house and two acres, and the county treasurer said, you are paying too much. He went to the assessor, and presented me with a tax bill of $10, down from $600. I kissed his feet. … Well, nearly!

True. But I don’t see her as someone who uses the fact she’s W Bush’s daughter and HW Bush’s grand. Yeah she definitely has had privileges as a first daughter but she doesn’t force it like the Trump kids or Meaghan McCain. She and her sister also seem just fine expressing thoughts outside of GOP orthodoxy.

“fewer eligible males” - well, good for those males.

My life experience has been different, perhaps because the fields I studied and in which I worked are so male dominant, and that San Diego is one of the few major metropolitan areas where single men outnumber single women (thanks to the Navy.)

Mostly I’ve found that highly educated women are indeed more discriminating and I gather that young men today who don’t get at least one college degree are going to feel the pressure.

But I suspect this will all level out, sort of automatically. The meaning of a college degree has been greatly diluted to where now it is simply a perfunctory hurdle employers want, even if they aren’t willing to pay more.

Not to sound like too much of an ass (of which I’ve been at times), but:
1) easy plumbing jobs women are good at, as good as men, and as a guy I can tell you I leave difficult plumbing jobs to the pros;
2) the electrical problems should be done only by qualified electricians;
3) cars still use carburetors?
4) heaters and furnaces are best replaced when they get so old they continually break down.

That said, I get your point. But gender roles often are quite arbitrary and I’ve come across many women who are far more capable than I at this or that job that needs to be done.

Just to remind people that all sorts of stuff is happening outside the USA:

Hong Kong protests: tens of thousands defy mask ban as mobs go on rampage against mainland China-linked businesses and MTR

* Masked mobs smash banks, stores and bookshops associated with mainland China and trash government buildings
* Rail operator reopens half of its stations at midmorning, only to then close four of them and suspend services on seven lines

and, more unsettling:

For the first time, the People’s Liberation Army barracks in Kowloon East issued a warning in Cantonese in the early evening after demonstrators shone laser lights as they walked past the buildings en route to another location. A yellow flag went up at the top of the building warning the demonstrators as several men in uniform were seen filming the protesters and a floodlight shone on them. Nothing more came of the tense moment, however, as both sides soon cleared from the scene.

scmp.com

Hong Kong is one of the largest financial trading hubs in the world. This has got to be making major financial players nervous.

A couple of days ago I mentioned that I picked up a ton of Cds from the library for my son. Tonight we went to see the documentary Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool. On the way out of the theater he asked how much I knew beforehand, and I confessed that I knew very little except that I was always intrigued by my oldest brother’s copy of “Bitches Brew”—the cover art. As we got in the car he said, “want to hear it?” And so we plugged in his phone and listened on the 20-minute ride home. What a beautiful organic beast.

regret is one thing, whinging about how one never got a degree after decades of blaming other people is completely different.

Exactly why I contrasted regret with resentment. MRA types resent women being educated. I think it’s great that women are pursuing their full academic potential. I mean aside from a feminist/equalitarian POV, don’t we want half of our population pursuing what will help them achieve the best jobs? I swear BWS, I think most conservatives aren’t over the advances that began to be made a half century ago. It’s why their ideology doesn’t adapt. It’s an ideology of resentment of change.

Soccer club fires coach for calling Greta Thunberg a ‘whore’ and the ‘right age to take a pounding’

An Italian youth soccer coach was fired from his club after he called 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg a “whore” who “can take a pounding” in a Facebook comment.

“This whore! A 16-year-old can take a pounding, she’s at the right age!” Tommaso Casalini, a former assistant Coach of Grosseto’s Giovanissimi A team, wrote in a post earlier this week. Grosseto immediately removed Casalini as a coach saying in a statement that the trainer was fired for “not acting in line with the club, who focus on moral values ​​even more than technical values​,” according to Football-Italia.

Following his removal, Casalini issued an extended apology to regional sports website Grosseto Sport, where he acknowledged the fact that his behavior was not appropriate, especially since he did not realize he was attacking a minor.

I tend to think this is true. I’ve recently had two old high school acquaintances whom I “friended” years ago come out as full-blown Trumpists. I have found that their essential knowledge comes not from Fox (as far as I know from citations) but from Judicial Watch. These are/were smart guys.

Then today I saw a tweet from a CNN political analyst (name escapes me) reporting, yet again, that ‘quietly, out of earshot, increasing numbers of GOP pols are wondering how to get off the crazy train without pain.’ The comments—I read a couple hundred—were mostly Trumpists saying that these, then, are RINOs. And I think the GOP has already shed two or three skins of RINOs.* We are at the core of racist, know-nothings who will follow Trump into violence if need be.

Henceforth the RINO slough.

Anywho…. sleep tight and don’t let Bret bite!

We need some place for those fleeing Republicans to go, and that would leave the core group losing elections and getting arrested.

We got our rescue dog a year ago this month. She has been nothing but sweet. She usually prefers her own sofa, but sometimes jumps up to snuggle. But tonight she’ stretched out next to with her head using my arm as a pillow and snoring away. I really need to go to bed, as i said earlier, but I don’t want to wake her. One-handed typing!

Dammit, Trump, impeachment is not an option when it comes to senators and congresspeople.

Impeachment applies to presidents, vice presidents, judges, justices, and cabinet secretaries.

Resign, Trump, and to back to school and take a remedial U.S. Government class.

One thing I notice is that many people are surprised by how fast the institutions have fallen. I don’t believe that’s quite correct. The institutions have been under assault for decades which means they’ve actually persevered fairly well. That they’re only falling now is actually quite remarkable.

Hecuba's daughter  Oct 6, 2019 • 8:03:05pm

The Chicago Tribune published a column today by Lara Weber, a member of their editorial board, summarizing editorials that the Tribune published the previous 3 times that a President was being investigated for impeachable offenses, The Tribune to date has had no more than mild rebukes of Trump’, even describing the infamous “transcript” as a collegial conversation.

Here is part of the Tribune characterization of Clinton written four days after the release of the Starr report:

If Clinton continues in office, it will be as a hollow man, unable to command support in Congress, among foreign leaders, maybe even among his own aides.

Who will know when he’s telling the truth and when he’s not, whether he’s being sincere or play-acting, whether his word is his bond or just another artful dodge?

At this point, Bill Clinton would best serve the United States by resigning the presidency, and that is the course we urge upon him. If he truly cares about the nation, and not just himself, he will step down and spare it the constitutional crisis toward which his recklessness has propelled us.

Not that it will do any good, but I am intending to send them a caustic letter criticizing their outright hypocrisy in their treatment of Trump: After all if dissembling about a consensual affair with an adult woman — as sleazy and inappropriate as it might have been — deserves resignation, Trump’s outright betrayal of his oath of office, his constant lies, his loyalty to Putin, his extortion of allies, etc all certainly merit a much harsher judgement than the one they imposed on Clinton. It is clear that every Republican in the current Congress and every newspaper that refuses to take a real stand against Trump is a coward and dishonest to the core.

The Chicago FIBUNE has always been a Republican propaganda rag with the only exception being it’s endorsement of Obama in 2008 and 2012. In 2016 it gave “no endorsement” for President but the same editorial was far more caustic to Hillary than it was to Shithead.

Reagan was a great actor who played “president” on campaign swings, at state dinners, radio addresses, etc…. while GHWB very quietly behind closed doors did all the policy stuff.
