Moved from the last thread (I’m slow):

re: #36 Joe Bacon 🌹

Sat in with X and the Utah Outcasts Gang last night but couldn’t get to sleep until past 2PM thanks to the copters and sirens. Got up a little past 9 and see President Asshole and his Turd Attorney General going after “Antifa” while giving a green light to the 3%ers, militias, Boogaloos and Proud Boys to keep on instigating violence.

And Mitt Romney STILL is the only Republican who speaks out…

My wife and I need to get a better camera and mic than my laptop so we can sit in for another podcast. We had fun, though the YouTube videos with us are horrible because of my poor camera, worse microphone, and really bad yellow lighting, and our kitchen cabinet for our backdrop.

I’m not a YouTuber though, so I don’t know what sort of equipment to buy.

Juanita Jean’s (El Jefe writing): Trump Ruins a Great Day for America

… Then it happened. Both Pence AND Trump spoke at the famous vehicle assembly building taking full credit for the last 15 years of planning and development of a commercial manned space program. In full Blatant Lie Mode, Trump declared that HE saved the space program by simply not shipwrecking what Bush II and Obama had put in motion. Yes, I turned it off.

The conclusion from today? You can’t get away from the cretin anywhere, not even in space.

Here we go

Emergency declared in Omaha, Lincoln; curfew starts at 8 p.m. tonight in both cities (Omaha World-Herald, more at the link):

A state of emergency and curfew have been declared for Omaha following two nights of violent protest and Saturday night’s shooting death of a young man.

Additionally, the National Guard has been activated to help in Omaha and Lincoln.

The curfew means that no one is to be out in public from 8 p.m. Sunday to 6 a.m. Monday, Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert said at a press conference Sunday afternoon. A violation is a misdemeanor and is subject to up to six months in jail and a $500 fine.

Gov. Pete Ricketts asked at the press conference that people stay home Sunday night. People can travel to and from work during the curfew.

The state of emergency will run for 72 hours, which is the limit of the mayor’s authority. If an extension is needed, she said she’ll ask for one from the City Council.

Council Bluffs also decided to institute a curfew, beginning at 8 p.m. Sunday and lasting until 7 a.m. Monday. The curfew allows people to travel to and from work.

More:

[Omaha Police Chief Todd] Schmaderer also some of today’s plans have been designed to allow a rally Sunday at the Malcom X birth site to proceed without violent disruption.

The signature voices of George Floyd’s death should come from that rally, the chief said, and the department wants to be sure those voices are heard.

and

Schmaderer also said an individual found with a Molotov cocktail outside Omaha police headquarters was from out of state.

re: #40 Backwoods_Sleuth

I wonder if the Minnesota NG has an MRAD “sound truck”? The regional police agency serving my town (NEMLEC) has one, but it’s never been deployed that I know of.

During the Occupy Wall Street protests, NYPD used theirs in a crowded urban area which it was not designed for. People bled out of their ears and were deafened. Those trucks have no place in the cities.

How dare Biden and others help protesters pay bail for ticky-tack crimes - like protesting police brutality all while the protests reveal nationwide abuse by cops and cops engaging in fireable offenses on an almost hourly basis.

Heck, a truck driver attempts to drive through a crowd, and the cops go and pepper spray the crowd. Because that’s warranted? Nope. It’s because they think they can.

I couldn’t make out what was happening but if the crowd was attacking the driver then that is their job. As long as they arrested the driver afterward.

I guess we’ll find out, and if it’s as I suspect, with only aerial footage, there’s probably no way to determine for sure if he was being attacked before the police showed up.

One of those weird nights here after having worked last night but not needing to tonight. Napped a little, did some more photo editing, but now thinking about supper.

Nothing thawed. Hmm..

Look through stuff from pantry… lets see…
Bag of pre-made Chili without beans.
Can of mild Chili beans
Bag of pasta that looks like mini lasagna noodles.

Sounds like Chili-mac tonight. Boil the noodles. Mix in the beans and chili, heat through, and melt a little shredded cheddar on top.

Nothing fancy but with a cup of tea, it should do just fine.

I wasn’t able to determine that, but I wouldn’t be surprised. I’d like to think we’re smarter than that, but a Minnesota State Patrol officer arrested a reporter while his cameraman broadcast it live to the whole world, so…

So the industry I work in is not special. It is a fair example sometimes. The Chicago Jewelry District really got hit. I have a bias. A friend’s store was hit hard. There is a large bloodstain on the sidewalk right in front for him to confront when he had checked the place in the daytime. I feel for the guy. Like most small biz folks he is all in financially. And out on a limb since covid.

The Los Angles District also got hit hard. The Grove (Fairfax) famously got hit, some deserved hilarious sarcasm about “The Cheesecake Factory has Fallen!!” And we have seen stories about micro biz guys crying and pleading for the survival of the biz in the face of rioters.

It looks crystal clear to me this is like ‘68. We have some real police riots and an insurrectionist riot of at least two factions. MAGA Boogaloo boys and far-left agitators and provocateurs. We have police in some places actually marching with and being kind to genuine protesters.

We have a couple kinds of people showing up. We have the very real BLM movement in play and rightly outraged allies of every race. We have the counter-protesters, the MAGA Boogaloo Proud boyz. And we have the opportunistic thieves.
Nuance among chaos among disaster and malice.

“But you have rights!”
Yes. But not at that time of night in MY neighborhood.
“You should really do something!”
Yes. But my daddy isn’t influential or a lawyer.
“Are you going to let them get away with that?”
You got money and a lawyer to help me?
“I can’t believe you let them get away with that!”
Yeah. Me either. I only got a nickel ride and slapped around. Just some bruises. Not stitches like last time.
“How can you do that?”

You know what would REALLY bring back that “1968” vibe?

If Trump did an “LBJ”, and announced he wasn’t going to be running for another term this year.

* He and the GOP would still have eight months to fuck up the country.
*Donny would have eight months to plan his escape/plea-bargain
*The Republicans would improve their election chances for Congress without Trump as an anchor around their necks.
*The Republicans would have more time to hone their obstruction strategy for the next Congress, probably “saving the country from Satanic Soshulists”
* Trump would have more time to set up Trump TV, or whatever grift/scam
* And (assuming he’s still alive) he could still hold out the hope of his running again in ‘24

Winning all around!

The thing is, Proud Boys have rules. Antifa, as an organization, doesn’t really exist. It’s a loose organization of like-minded individuals, kinda like Occupy Wall Street, which had nothing in the way of established leadership. It’s why it failed, but it was also really good at getting publicity.

We’ve been driving around in the foothills the last few nights. This time of year is so gorgeous. The late spring flowers are blooming and there’s so much greenery. The roses are spectacular too. And, we we go in the evening, we see bunnies and deer.

Have been worried about the bunnies with the horrible disease that’s ripping through their population, but it looks like, so far, they’re hanging in.

The deer are so pretty. Young does and yearling bucks. We saw a dozen of them a couple of days ago. My dog LOVES them. I he would like to run off and join them.

Anyway, I’ll take some pics of the prettiness soon. Just haven’t had the joy/energy to take pics lately, but this is too pretty not to share.

It looks very southern Cali with the fancy houses and greenery. But no palms.

Alaska sees largest daily COVID-19 case increase with 27 new cases

Twenty-seven confirmed COVID-19 cases were reported Sunday by the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services — the state’s highest daily increase since the pandemic began.

The sharp rise comes just over a week after the state lifted restrictions and reopened. The previous largest uptick in cases came April 6 when 22 people tested positive for the virus.

Sunday’s cases include 12 in Anchorage, four in Wasilla, three each in Eagle River and Kenai, two in Homer and one each in Anchor Point, Soldotna and one case listed as other in the Kenai Peninsula Borough, according to DHSS.

That’s a lot of cases for a State with a population of about 750K.

Do you know who actually said it? Argument with a friend (for now)

There is a 2014 interview with Joe Scarborough after the publication of a book where he states the following:

“Well, the reason it’s called “One Nation” is because I want people to understand that we, the American people, are not each other’s enemies. The real enemies are those people who are trying to divide us into every little possible group. Any crack they drive a wedge into to create, you know, gender wars, race wars, income wars, age wars, any kind of war there is. And you know, that’s completely not who we are. That’s why we’re called the United States of America. One of the reasons that we were able to rise to the pinnacle so quickly is because we learned how to use our resources together and we had a common vision and we know who we were. We don’t even know who we are anymore.”

I really thought the State was getting a handle on the situation, but looking at the numbers, there was a moderate increase (3-4/day) for the last couple of days and then we have this explosive increase today. The next few days will be interesting.

When I had to do video meetings, I started my research with this article:

The Tools to Ace Every Video Meeting
nytimes.com

In further researching the article’s recommendations, both LogiTech cameras were highly rated. And both were sold out at the time.

I ended up getting the “Eye of Sauron” Razer. It seems to work well. The secret is that you need to download and use their ‘app’. Once you can get the picture in the app, you disable the preview picture in the app and the enable Zoom. (Apparently the video stream can only be directed to one app. The Razer help desk really was very helpful, and very familiar with my questions. And, no, I do not use the ring light.

I also got the recommended Jabra 40. It seems to work well. I often use it to carry on mobile phone conversations when there is a lot of ambient noise.

I cannot speak to any other of their recommendations. Further, may not fit your expected use cases.

Thus, as always, ymmv…

The Logitech Brio is probably the best bet for consumer verging on Prosumer grade camera. Anything beyond that you may as well splurge for a decent DSLR camera that can double as a webcam. As for audio, you can’t go wrong with the Blue snowball for affordable, easy and good sound quality. One of the problems with the snowball is you cant plug in headphones for monitoring. If you are going to do regular podcasting and the monitor is a deal breaker, the Shure mv5 and Samson Q2U are good alternatives for just a few bucks more.

I can also talk to the computer shop in Scottsbluff and see if they can help with this.

I don’t need a professional studio setup like some of the more prominent YouTubers.

My wife is calling saying the t-bone is done. Dinnertime.

You’re right, just the one at this point. Though things may change as they investigate.

I keep thinking about the Garner case where no one was arrested or tried for his murder so I’m not optimistic but I hope I’m wrong.

Your God wants you dead.

The Butte Co. CA woman who went to the Mothers’ Day church service the day before her test results came back positive (case #19 for the county) seems to only have infected 2 other people. As of Friday there had been 25 cases since then, but most of them are apparently been random community spread rather than linked to the church service.

A couple of doctors in Italy are saying that cases they are seeing now have way smaller viral loads than the ones at the peak of their epidemic. This suggests the virus is becoming milder, or perhaps people are just getting enough viral load to activate their immune systems to produce antibodies without being overwhelmed.
Either would be encouraging. But it’s just speculation for now.

re: #206 Quoth the raven, Covfefe.

The Hennepin County Prosecutor was on record around Thursday-ish saying that they pursued charges against Chauvin first but intended to bring charges against all of them. It’s probably a matter of finding evidence and charges that will stick.

Gee, the evidence in the video showing two other officers holding him down and another standing by and not doing anything to stop it seems to be kind of clear, doesn’t it? I mean, all another officer had to do was push the murderer off the victim thirty seconds into the video and it would not have been a murder, would it?

They didn’t. They abetted a murder.

Full stop.

They abetted a murder, and that is also murder.

They may be working on one of them to testify against the others. Not a lawyer, but I think that sometimes this happens, helps the case. It’s not going fast enough for me, but if there is an acquittal the violence will be worse.

On the issue of protests possibly causing an upsurge in infections.

It seems to me that when you watch day after day people being murdered with impunity on camera, the threat of physical harm from state violence seems to be more pressing than the potential of coming down with a disease.

re: #208 Patricia Kayden

I’m not saying the looting is more important. It wouldn’t have likely happened at all had the cops who murdered Mr. Floyd been arrested all at once. This is outside agitators and locals taking advantage of chaos to steal. I would never put stuff before people, ever. The whole thing is heartbreaking, the waste of life and suffering it is causing is why I spend a good portion of every day in tears and it started before the protests. We’re a selfish and mean country that seems to value hate over love.
