Local on-line ads for county commissioner election.

GOP paid for ad promising bipartisanship, safer schools, and lower taxes.

Sorry. I’m not buying. Start cleaning up your house at the top levels (or at a minimum start providing a lot of pushback from the lower levels towards those levels) and I *might* start giving you some consideration. Until then it’s “GOP delenda est” until further notice.

Trump really is a fucking moron.

1) He doesn’t know shit about climate.

2) If you “cleaned” the forest floors, where would all the brush and shit go?

3) More importantly cleaning a forest floor would not stop lightning from striking the tops of trees and starting big fucking fires.

4) And I’m not even going to bother addressing that bullshit about rerouting the water.

The people “advising” him on the environment only care about profits. And that’s a real problem especially if you have an idiot like Trump that totally is uninformed and ignorant.

The county elections here will be something to watch. 2 of the 3 county commissioners are GOP. Of the nine county row offices 5 are up for election - all five of the ones currently GOP held. The other four are not up for election until 2021 and are held by Democrats.

The county is considered fairly conservative, but has been trending Democratic for the last decade or so.

I fully expect Trump to shut the government down again.

Even money, IMO: but, like the last couple of times he tried this shit, it’s highly unlikely to work out the way he planned…..

Though, like last time, I’m guessing it’s going be another (well-deserved, and nowhere-near-as-painful-as-it-should-be) political headache for Mitch McConnell.

I’m sure most of Congress is just as happy to kick the budgetary can down the road into next year (or, ideally, the next Administration): but having Trump frame the CR issue as “stop the impeachment investigation or I’ll shut the Government down” does not seem to be a winning strategy.

So it will probably be what the WH will at least try…

According to Republicans now, getting caught robbing a bank is OK (intent doesn’t matter) so long as you fail at the heist and so long as you can question the political position of the person who dialed 911 as well as the responding officer(s), all the way up to the District Attorney

Further

lawyer for the whistleblower who reported concerns about President Trump’s dealings with Ukraine told CBS News he offered to have Republicans on the House Intelligence Community submit questions to his client directly without having to go through the committee’s Democratic majority

They haven’t
They want his name made public but not actual answers to questions

re: #33 Hecuba’s daughter

Yep — only California has problems with homelessness. Texas knows how to handle this!

Salt Lake City currently has a homeless crisis because one of the shelters, The Road Home, is scheduled to close at the end of November and all the other shelters are over capacity. Another shelter is supposed to open, but it will have 400 less capacity than the Road Home. And it’s not located near downtown SLC, but in South Salt Lake, which is several miles from downtown. (It’s also my understanding that the Road Home’s site is scheduled for redevelopment and the developers really want all those smelly homeless out of there.)

fox13now.com

So look for freezing people to start showing up in the news around December 1 when the Road Home closes and there aren’t enough spaces in the shelters.

ETA: Yeah, the lot is being sold for $4 million for redevelopment. kutv.com

@teleskiguy
Back in 2013 Chief Justice John Roberts declared in his majority opinion in Shelby County v. Holder that racism was no longer a prevailing issue in American life. John Roberts needs to fucking get out more.

Nope — what he really declared was that stopping racism would interfere with getting Republicans elected so it was to the GOP benefit to outlaw any attempts to increase voter turnout among minorities.

Conversely it may lead to more unofficial leaks. Also, attacking the whistleblower now is just misplaced rage. Everything they put in their complaint has been admitted to and independently corroborated many times over, by first hand witnesses to the crime.

Do you know who changed the skyline of New York? The 9/11 deathjackers.

OH HAI I AM IN NEW YORK NOW. The LGA Delta Terminal sucks.

Congressional investigations of the Executive? Contentious cabinet meetings? Where did that all come from?

Meet Little Turtle (Michikinikwa), war chief of the Miami nation. What he did on 4 Nov 1791 destroyed 25-50% of the United States Army fighting strength and triggered the first House investigation and the first cabinet meeting.

And there was a song:

St. Claire’s Defeat

Yup, the Battle of Thousand Slain. 900 soldiers kia and mia out of maybe 1100, 30 laborers, and an unknown number of ‘camp-followers’ (wives and children).

I had not heard of the song before. Thanks for posting that!

Song was written in Pittsburgh within a few years of the battle. The disaster collapsed security on the Ohio frontier so badly that raiding parties were able to carry off prisoners within sight of the outer works of Fort Pitt.

And Little Turtle went on beating up the US Army and local militia until he met a force led by local boy “Mad” Anthony Wayne. (I currently live about 4 miles from where he was born, six miles from where he is buried, and just over a mile from where he arguably got his ass kicked by the British in 1777 at the Battle of Paoli Tavern.* )

The Battle of Fallen Timbers is something I was taught about as a youngster since it was part of the elementary school level history teaching in Indiana while I was growing up. Plus I have visited Stony Point on the Hudson River where Wayne commanded a night assault on a strong position in 1779.

* - And the site of the actual (no longer there) Paoli Tavern is near me over next to US 30 aka the “Lancaster Pike”.
