Unfortunately the replies to the original tweet are basically echoing that Dems are somehow uniquely awful and evil and useless all at once because they just don’t bully pulpit and are secretly austerity loving republican sleeper agents.

These are morons who think that making a lot of noise and accomplishing little counts as a “moral victory.” They work themselves into a lather every 2-4 years about how it’s time to “stand up” to the DNC and get “real progressives” into office, totally fail at doing so because they can’t be bothered to show up and take part in a “rigged” process, and then spend the next 2-4 years bitching that there’s no point in voting because “both parties are bad.”

Huge numbers of people are complaining over Land O’ Lakes removing the native American woman from its packaging.

It seems like a bunch of concern trolling in the vein of 4chan, claiming “erasing” the woman is no different than erasing Native Americans from North America.

Others are claiming they will never buy that brand of butter again. (Sure, Jan.)

The 4chan reek comes from people with names like this:

This varyingly nuanced narrative that we should force herd immunity by getting sick because/jobs should be called ‘Pox Americana.’ It invokes the same privileged elitist dicsconnect charading as superiority of the original Pax Americana.

Both Bill Maher Friday night and Thomas Friedman interviewed Dr. David Katz who is promoting the “only the old and infirm have serious consequences from the virus” and basically everyone else is ok. He’s not an epidemiologist or infectious disease specialist, but somehow because his is the message they want to hear, they lap it up and spew it out to the rest of us. Neither Maher or 6-months-Friedman have any education or experience in the medical field, but they do want “specialists” who will confirm their biases.

On Maher’s show, at least Katz did mention that the Swedish model was not ideal because it was too weighted toward insufficient protections though he could have discussed that further, but what I found especially annoying his interpretation that “flattening the curve” did not affect number of deaths, but only postponement of cases. He did not seem to understand that a flattened curve meant that, since caseload would no longer overwhelm heath care systems, more people could survive this disease (not to mention those who are dying of other ailments because they could not get care).

Katz also never really discussed the practicality of isolating the most vulnerable, but like others, just throws it out as a benign choice that would balance economic vs health requirements.

It really makes you wonder what Republicans and Conservatives think about this country. Do they really believe that only their opinions carry any weight? The removal of racist logos and emblems is a good thing in a diverse, multicultural country. In the near future, Whites won’t even be the majority here.

This sprung up so rapidly, along with some of the Twitter handles involved, it seems to be something like a 4chan “op.” They don’t care who they manipulate or what about, they just like causing political and social chaos.

Is there any indication that Land o’Lakes changed the logo due to any “leftist” pressure to remove the Indian? As compared to, say, actually wanting to emphasize their farmer cooperative basis on the centennial of their founding? (As touting that is probably better advertising for customers at this stage than a picture of Indians, cows*, eagles, or anything else.

That might actually work in the UK.

The problem with trying to do it in the US, in fact the reason we recruited trainloads of Mexicans to come here during WWII, is that the places where we grow food are a considerable distance from the cities full of unemployed.

It might be possible to social distance in the fields, but not in the bus taking everybody there.

When you hear a white person talk about the removal of a racist symbol/logo/etc as being about “heritage,” nine times outta ten what they’re really saying is that the world they grew up in is changing and they can’t deal with it. It’s like the “Under God” in the pledge, they grew up with that and so assume it was always there. The Land O’ Lakes label they grew up with didn’t come about until 7 years after the brand began selling in stores, but they’re acting as though it was always there and to remove it is to in some way “erase” the history behind the name.

There was an attempt in rural states during the Great Recession to force those on UI to take farm jobs or else lose their benefits. The farmers ended up regretting that, since most of those who showed up found out that they got paid by output rather than an hourly wage, that the labor was more intensive than moving stacks of papers or putting data into a computer, and the pay they did earn wasn’t enough to justify driving from the burbs out into the middle of nowhere.

Just like all the “heritage” about Confederate battle flag imagery on southern state flags. It didn’t start turning up in most cases until the late 1950s when conservatives started getting worried about Jim Crow being under pressure from the Civil Rights movement. And it’s roughly the same time that religious verbiage like “in God We Trust” crept onto the currency and into the (written by a socialist) Pledge of Allegiance.

Most packaged good marketers tend to tweak their packaging constantly, many of the moves just below the level of change that their consumers would notice. It has the subliminal effect of attracting attention because there’s something new happening with the package, but most people aren’t aware of it.

One things grows more and more clear: if there ever is any major natural and/or man-made catastrophe that leads to the breakdown of public order over large areas or for a large population, prompting Martial Law, things will break down and armed goombahs will be out disobeying government orders (while endangering other people’s lives in the process) just because it is their ornery, contrarian nature to do so.

Is there any indication that Land o’Lakes changed the logo due to any “leftist” pressure to remove the Indian? As compared to, say, actually wanting to emphasize their farmer cooperative basis on the centennial of their founding? (As touting that is probably better advertising for customers at this stage than a picture of Indians, cows*, eagles, or anything else.

* - Singing cows was a staple of their margarine commercials.

[Embedded content]

As far as I can tell from the corporate Website, it’s precisely as you say, to emphasise their co-op on the 100th anniversary. They make no mention of removing the Native woman out of a concern or pressure over racism (though they might not admit that if they got pressure).

He deserves an Ignoble Prize.

Before someone else can bring it up, there is an actual Ig Nobel Prize.

The Ig Nobel Prize (/ˌɪɡnoʊˈbɛl/ IG-noh-BEL) is a satiric prize awarded annually since 1991 to celebrate ten unusual or trivial achievements in scientific research, its stated aim being to “honor achievements that first make people laugh, and then make them think.” The name of the award is a pun on the Nobel Prize, which it parodies, and the word ignoble.

1996 winner Don Featherstone was the first recipient to accept his prize in person. He received the award for inventing the pink plastic flamingo.

re: #76 Targetpractice

There was an attempt in rural states during the Great Recession to force those on UI to take farm jobs or else lose their benefits. The farmers ended up regretting that, since most of those who showed up found out that they got paid by output rather than an hourly wage, that the labor was more intensive than moving stacks of papers or putting data into a computer, and the pay they did earn wasn’t enough to justify driving from the burbs out into the middle of nowhere.

When Alabama passed their version of the “papers please” law, tomato farmers were left having to plow under their crops. Even offering large sums per hour could not entice people to come out to the fields and do that sort of work.

Aside from foreign migrants, American migrants move around the country as different crops come in. No one is going to give up their regular job to pick tomatoes for three weeks.

Most packaged good marketers tend to tweak their packaging constantly, many of the moves just below the level of change that their consumers would notice. It has the subliminal effect of attracting attention because there’s something new happening with the package, but most people aren’t aware of it.

point is that LOL is a company, not a cultural institution and they can change their packaging as they see fit.

Just like the NFL once changed its game programming to have the players come out before the National Anthem - they used to stay in the locker room and come out afterwards until the US military started paying them to put in more patriotic displays in their games to boost recruiting….

I have no idea about their other products, but Avast! antivirus is the ultimate in shitty borderline malware that massively slows computers while providing little protection. My company has resold Eset for a long time, and it’s still decent though every version seems to bring more bloat and headaches. They offer some multi-device packages.

I don’t trust internet-based password managers. At all. “Here, take my passwords!” If the company is trustworthy itself, it’s still a target on the internet to be hacked.

VPN services is not something I’ve explored in detail, but I’d probably start with a company that just does that rather than someone hawking it in a bundle.

After six weeks of dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic, Kimball Health Services administrators this week said the hospital is headed in a positive direction financially and operationally.

On Monday, April 27, the hospital will resume its regular hours of 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., although the Pine Bluffs Clinic will still be limiting its hours.

(more)

On the Road Back (Kimball, Nebr. Western Nebraska Observer)

KHS was hammered with Covid-19 patients, including staff. They closed their Pine Bluffs, Wyo. clinic and the whole system went through an investigation and deep-cleaning.

The hospital simultaneously lost elective surgery when Governor Ricketts prohibited those. That pushed the hospital to the brink of closure.

The hospital did get a Small Business Administration loan to tide them over, the worst of the staff Covid-19 cases are over now, and elective surgery is permitted again. The Pine Bluffs, Wyo. clinic is reopened with limited hours.

KHS is the only hospital in Kimball County. Like my county, it is not really set up as an intensive care ward

My birthday was yesterday—uneventful (take out from my favorite Italian restaurant; tiramisu instead of cake) but got me thinking about my best and worst birthdays.

Best—was in Paris, drinking Grand Marnier at Café de la Paix.

Worst—was in an armed robbery at a restaurant in Columbus, OH. Note: “Up against the wall, motherfuckers” is NOT a good substitute for “Happy Birthday.”

And yet, even on the worst one, at least I wasn’t married to Donald Trump, so I think I’m ahead of the game.

The quoted “Nobles” at the end was a pun the flew right over your head, libtards.

What Is With This Michigan Republican’s Confederate Coronavirus Mask Apology? (Goes to Wonkette)

On Friday, Michigan State Senator Dale Zorn showed up to a Senate vote in the Capitol wearing what was very obviously a Confederate flag face mask and could easily be recognized as such by anyone who had ever seen one. And people noticed.

At first, when confronted about the obvious Confederate flag mask he was wearing on his face, Sen. Zorn explained that his wife made the mask for him and that she told him it was more like the Kentucky state flag or the Tennessee state flag, despite bearing no resemblance to either of those things.

The Kentucky state flag is blue and features two guys shaking hands, and thus looks nothing at all like the Confederate flag, which has no guys shaking hands on it at all.

I hesitate to share this, but I saw this when I was driving home from picking up meds at the pharmacy.

I’m putting one other picture behind the button because it’s a close up of the tangerine toddler as a boxer.

What would be even better is if someone put on the top side of the bars THE SOUTH SHALL and on the bottom side FALL AGAIN COVID-19. Just to make sure anybody who actually looks will see it’s a parody flag
