Answering an inquiry from late in the last thread about Dick Harpootlian.

re: #135 retired cynic

You are the one to know and to explain it to us! I have never heard of him, and appreciate your knowledge.

Well, on the latest Harpootlian mess, this Fitsnews article goes deep—but be forewarned, Fits is a “conservative” site that hates almost all SC legislators, but Dems more than most. But they do have the contacts with everyone in the legislature—you just need to be aware of how their “tone” is applied.

The guy who runs it, Will Folks, was the one who came out about an affair with Nikki Haley, complete with text messages, when she was running for governor. But then he endorsed her. He’s kinda nuts. ballotpedia.org

Anyway—here’s their take (and if you search for Harpootlian stories on the site, you won’t be disappointed)

fitsnews.com

A more straightforward, but less entertaining version of the story:

A few more Harpootlian quotes from back when.

In 2011, when he was running to become state chair for the 2nd time:
“If you hate government, you hate the South Carolina Republican Party, because they own it.”

On GOP governance over the last eight years, Harpootlian notes that “we’ve gone to 50th in education and number one in gonorrhea, and that’s the accomplishments of an all Republican government.”

Of GOP Gov. Nikki Haley Harpootlian said: “She’s writing a book. If she doesn’t do something about the educational system, nobody here is going to have the skills to read it.”

washingtonpost.com

When he was in a fight with Alan Wilson, our Attorney General (Joe “You Lie’s” step/adopted son)

“All I know is there is medication today that can control his condition,” Harpootlian said, referring to Wilson as someone who needed to experience “the miracle of drugs.”

fitsnews.com

And that’s as far as I want to go tonight down the Harpootlian rabbit hole. He’s exhausting!

Admittedly, this time I’m fine with the questionably-legal retaliation, because Huawei is already a direct arm of its government that spies on everyone who uses its equipment.

We have another few months before Trump starts putting loyalists at the top of Qualcomm and the like to do the same thing with US 5G. I was furious that Westminster chose to deal with the PRC that way.

The U.S. Justice Department on Friday told four automakers it had closed an antitrust investigation into a voluntary agreement the companies reached with California on emissions without taking any action, three automakers and a source told Reuters.

The Trump administration in September issued a determination that California cannot set its own vehicle emission standards and had been investigating if the companies engaged in anti-competitive conduct in striking the deal.

The White House still must finalize the rollback of the Obama-era standards. Last month, Reuters reported the White House is reviewing a draft final proposal that would boost the stringency of U.S. vehicle emission standards by 1.5% annually from the 2021 through 2026 model years, which will still be considerably lower than planned Obama-era standards that hiked yearly requirements by about 5% annually.

Not as evident in the black & white version, but what struck me in the color original is the resemblance to some of the pictures of Mary Trump. Something about the hair swept back, the narrowed eyes, the set of the mouth. Maybe it’s just me, I haven’t seen anyone else mentioning it.

Minus the clown mask, minus the knowledge of what lurks beneath it, it would just be a fairly generic, not unbecoming picture of an elderly person. As it is, a stark exposure of addled vanity.

Unintended consequences: To save conservatism at any cost, you have to break rules.

Once the rules are broken, all fairness is gone. Those who voted for rule breakers thinking they’ll benefit, but they suffer when there are no rules.

I recall when John McCain tried to silence Tea Party hecklers and declare that “Obama is an honorable man!” and was shouted down. I heard nobody in the GOP come to his defense.

That started an attention-grabbing race to the bottom in that the most ridiculous and unfounded charges went unchallenged: Birtherism, Jade Helm, Pizzagate, nothing was too outrageous as long as it seemed to “piss off the liberals”.

And all were exploited by trolls who saw how easy it was to spread such drivel.

The Spanish flu also seemed to progress more rapidly than this virus. People are not dying the day they become symptomatic, as often happened in 1918. It’s also more lethal among the older and infirm, unlike the 1918 pandemic which killed the young and healthy.

The American who died was a woman who had health problems.

More info about one of Trump’s SOTU stunts at the link.

PHILADELPHIA — President Donald Trump turned a Philadelphia fourth grader into a poster child for the school-choice movement Tuesday when he told the nation thousands of students were “trapped in failing government schools” and announced that she was finally getting a scholarship to attend the school of her choice.

But the student, Janiyah Davis, already attends one of the city’s most sought-after charter schools, the Inquirer has learned. In September, months before she was an honored guest at Trump’s State of the Union Address, she entered Math, Science and Technology Community Charter School III.

When Trump said their names, Davis said she was “really surprised” and “honored.”

She was also surprised that Janiyah was chosen to receive a scholarship: “I don’t view MaST as a school you want to get out of at all. I view it as a great opportunity.” She isn’t sure whether Janiyah will stay at MaST, saying she and her daughter are still discussing their options.

The parallels with the fall of Rome are evident

chicago.suntimes.com

Don’t be glum, chum. It isn’t as if the United States Senate is the first legislative body to dissolve into an impotent puddle at the feet of a domineering leader. History’s full of ‘em. The most glaring example, alas, is the senate in the ancient Roman Republic.

If it’s been a while since you reached for your Edward Gibbon, save yourself the back strain. I’ve spent the weekend thumbing through “The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,” and, buddy, as bad as the news is today, by consulting history we are reminded that it can get worse.

Much worse.

The Roman people ruined themselves. He quotes Petrarch:

“Behold, the relics of Rome, the image of her pristine greatness! Neither time nor the barbarian can boast the merit of this stupendous destruction: it was perpetrated by her own citizens, by the most illustrious of her sons.”

Remember: the Russians didn’t conquer us. We surrendered. The senate surrendered. The people surrendered. To Donald Trump.

PHILADELPHIA — President Donald Trump turned a Philadelphia fourth grader into a poster child for the school-choice movement Tuesday when he told the nation thousands of students were “trapped in failing government schools” and announced that she was finally getting a scholarship to attend the school of her choice.

“Government schools” have to take all students who apply and can only kick them out if they pose a serious threat or disruption.

Private schools can be selective.

Apples and Oranges and totally against the basic principle of Freedom of Opportunity.

Cool little tank! Looks like the track chairs they are running at one of the Colorado state parks, which let someone with limited mobility get out on a mountain trail. We took my mom for a hike/ride for her 94th birthday, and then I did the same last summer.

Seems like there might be some things one could do with failing “government schools”,like oh I don’t know…..PROPERLY FUND THEM!!! Not one damned dime of tax dollars should be funding private schools.

This is the venue I have long suggested for an auction that would replace state-wide elections in Texas. It has plenty of seating for lobbyists, fatcats, foreign agents and other bidders, good road and airport access, and even VIP suites for billionaires and Russian oligarchs. Just herd the yokel politicians onto the floor and let the bidding begin! It would save a lot of time and money and the result would be largely the same

This is pretty universal even in really authoritarian countries. People hate, hate, hate the little pack of shitty stupid overprivileged relatives and hangers-on who get tens of millions of dollars for nothing while everyone else has to struggle and can never get that kind of success. But it always happens, and it started immediately with the shitgibbon.

The US is becoming more isolated culturally as well as politically. For instance, Franklin Graham is more or less a respectable figure in this country, at least as far as our brain-dead both-siderist media are concerned. In the UK, though, he is a social leper and literal outcast, unable to rent even a single private hall for his revival meetings. We need to see a lot more of this. We have to tolerate these charlatans and bigots, but others don’t. It would send a powerful message if they stopped giving American fascists and quacks a pass on local standards.

Considering that the Evangelicals I know take a pretty dim view of the Anglican church, I doubt that would make much difference.

I actually hang out with some Anglicans from the Church of Christ the King in Frankfurt and find them a decent lot, I have to say they changed my attitude about Christianity. Not enough to get me to convert, but I see that it is not all Fundamentalism, doctrinal infighting and Bible-Thumping.

Of course I was raised Catholic and then subjected to Campus Crusade for Christ proselytizers in college, so that really put me off Christianity for a long time.

That would do it, for sure. I’m sorry.

Many of us consider that something to be proud of.

Oh, the evangelical nutjobs would absolutely hate my ass. Forever a thorn in the side of their stupid, self-centered, anti-Christian worldview.

But these guys from the Church of the True Elvis are actually people to just quietly live their faith and don’t push it at all. And I had a crush on the choir director for a while there until she quit…

Donald J Trump, junior high bully and whiner extraordinaire. It would be kind of funny (in an eye-rolling sort of way) if he didn’t delight in causing so much pain and suffering.

Idle observation: There is sure a lot of bad karma being built up. In 10 years Republicans will be as hard to find as Nazis were in Berlin at the time of the Potsdam Conference (2 months after VE day). Can’t remember which writer made that observation, but it was one of the big ones.

I’d like to say that the last time we felt like the GOP would finally be lost in the wilderness long term was in ‘08. Then the Tea Party and ‘10 midterms happened and they were basically allowed all the breadth to derail Obama as much as possible. They didn’t succeed in making him a one-termer, but they still basically only grew more and more powerful until we’re where we’re at now, and they’re positioned to get all their unicorns.

The Campus Crusade doofi have turned generations of lukewarm Christian young people into complete, dedicated heathens.

It’s just embarrassing. The Roman Republic fell to Julius F’in’ Caesar. Our republic is falling to a ridiculous clown.

We tripped.
Not yet fallen

Agreed. I’ve noticed an increase recently of unskippable Youtube ads.

I’m sure some it is on purpose to try and annoy us enough that we cave and shell out the money for Youtube Premium but fuck that, I refuse to pay for Youtube.

Annoy me enough and I don’t pay
I tune you out

I lived in Wohngemeinschaft in Berlin that was run by Jesuits (you know, God’s Marines). I’d never really encountered Jesuits before, but I can say that I gained tremendous respect for them. Prior to that, I lived in the Georg-von-Rauch-Haus, a far-left collective, also in Berlin, named after Georg von Rauch, a member of the Movement June 2 who died in a shootout with the police in late 1971.

Berlin is one helluva interesting city, LOL.

I was subjected to the same crap, since high school (they have a special obsession with trying to convert Jews)… I’ve also had my share of Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons knocking on my door. And since I moved to NYC (they can’t door knock here, buildings don’t allow that) there’s always somebody on the street corner or walking through the subway shouting about their faith. Gross. Muslim “missionaries” are cool; they just sit at their little table with pamphlets and oil, and only speak to people who approach them first to start a conversation.

The main things that kept me from hating Christianity is Jim Wallis at Sojourners, and Slacktivist. I’ve also recently become fond of William Barber.

I came this > < close to having a rage aneurysm the first time I was really enjoying some music on youtube and bam a fucking ad in the middle of the song. I understand the need for revenue, really, but put it at the top of the video. In the middle wrecks the fucking song… they are now giving us a degraded product. Fuckers.
