From the previous thread:

re: #338 plansbandc

Always the tone police with animal vids. I put up a vid of a dog riding a skateboard and then crashing into a plastic trashcan (obvious no animal was harmed. He got up and went looking for his board.) I had an internet friend lose her shit over my cruelty, block me on all social media, shit post about me on our mutual fan boards and generally stalk me on the internet for several years. All because I posted the vid on twitter and thought it was funny.

Yeah, no “controversial” animal vids for me.

Wow, that seems a bit obsessive.

I can’t judge the value of your friendship, but perhaps her cutting you off was for the best.

JFC—just when you thought we might have a breather from crackpots on the Fed, this whackjob is coming up again.

Senate banking panel to resume considering Judy Shelton for Fed board

washingtonpost.com

In case you don’t remember her from when she was first going to be nominated in February:

An outspoken critic of the Federal Reserve, Shelton is best known for her controversial views on monetary policy. She has suggested that the United States does not need a fully independent central bank and has advocated for the nation to return to something akin to the gold standard...

Although much media attention has focused on Shelton’s views about gold, the banking community is more alarmed by her desire to end federal deposit insurance…

“This fast tracking of the Shelton nomination is mind boggling. It is as if they have not read anything she has said,” tweeted Diane Swonk, chief economist at Grant Thornton. “She is not only unqualified, she is dangerous. She has advocated policies removing deposit insurance and policies that would undermine community banking.”
washingtonpost.com

Various comments back in February—

CBS—Judy Shelton is a fan of a policy abandoned in 1971 and considered a fringe view by mainstream economists

WaPo—Shelton is an opportunist and a quack

The Hill—Among President Trump’s more bizarre nominations for office has to be his nomination of Judy Shelton

The American Prospect—Trump’s Latest Crackpot

(And then, of course, the New York Times—Ms. Shelton has unconventional views)

So here we go again. Ugh.

It’s official. Let the whinging commence in the opening lines.

Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding Executive Grant of Clemency for Roger Stone, Jr. (Goes to the White House proclamations page).

Today, President Donald J. Trump signed an Executive Grant of Clemency commuting the unjust sentence of Roger Stone, Jr.

Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency. There was never any collusion between the Trump Campaign, or the Trump Administration, with Russia. Such collusion was never anything other than a fantasy of partisans unable to accept the result of the 2016 election. The collusion delusion spawned endless and farcical investigations, conducted at great taxpayer expense, looking for evidence that did not exist. As it became clear that these witch hunts would never bear fruit, the Special Counsel’s Office resorted to process-based charges leveled at high-profile people in an attempt to manufacture the false impression of criminality lurking below the surface. These charges were the product of recklessness borne of frustration and malice.This is why the out-of-control Mueller prosecutors, desperate for splashy headlines to compensate for a failed investigation, set their sights on Mr. Stone.

I didn’t get $1200, but what I did get, I gave away. $400 to the local food bank and the rest parceled out among people I knew were unemployed. I did ask my brother if he and my mom didn’t need it first, and he told me to go ahead and give it away. If I get more, I’ll do the same thing. I do not need the money.

Yeah, I’m saving money by not having to drive to work and having to cook at home, but it’s been a wash since I’ve had to pay ca$$$h for a very expensive acid reflux medication. The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away.

Yeah, I might have to give a bit back to the IRS next year — although this isn’t looking like a banner year for investment income — but it won’t hurt to do it. My disposable income the last few years mostly went to travel and live performances, so…

I also gave $400 to a local food bank. The rest went to a city fund for helping businesses hurt by the shutdown. I’ll probably do something similar if there’s another stimulus check in my future.

Something to be said for ancient equipment. I’ve had my fridge for 30 years, and it was old when I moved in. No ice maker, no frost-free, and it just keeps chugging along (touch wood).

Good morning, all.

So, I wake up here in Europe and see that Trump has commuted Roger Stone’s prison sentence. This actually didn’t surprise me; the only part of it that did surprise me was the timing.

I figured Trump would wait until after the election and do that regardless of whether he won or lost. If he won, he’d do it as an exercise of triumphal power…..and if he lost, he’d do it as a last favor to an old friend and frankly, at that point, what would Trump have to lose?

Nope. Both Christianity and conservatism are religions, frequently admixed.

Religions require you to hold two or more opposing ideas which are exclusive, but believe both unquestioning.

Another example of that admixture: Conservatives and Christians of all denominations will frequently say Islam is not protected by the I Amendment because it is frequently political in nature (nevermind political positions are protected by the I Amendment). However, Christianity is protected when it produces political speech because reasons.

Yes, I was being facetious: I know how these people can believe that a thrice-married whoremonger can be God’s Chosen President.

And their argument against Islam is that it comprises a political system, equating Islamism (which is a movement based on Islam) with the religion itself.

I’m making dinner, which is usually a cringe for my wife.

Tonight’s haute cuisine ran into a problem.

My wife went to buy milk at the general store yesterday, but none was delivered to the store. All the proprietor had was chocolate milk, so my wife bought some. She thought that would be fine for coffee, and I rarely drink milk at all.

So tonight’s dinner is Tuna Helper … which requires milk. I did not inventory supplies before I started, so I was left puzzling over the chocolate milk.

“Honey, can I put your Silk brand milk in Tuna Helper?”

“No, it will taste like crap, or soybeans, same thing.”

“Well, how about the chocolate milk? I’ll bet that would be a new taste sensation.”

“I’ll beat you with an iron skillet.”

Grumble, grumble, dig out the dry milk and mix up a quart. “How about this?”

“That will be fine.” Dinner will be ready in a couple minutes.

That’s it. I can’t be an atheist because there is a hell, and the Republican Party runs it.

In the WaPo today. Roger Stone Is Saved

I’m quoting way too much but every line of the story is another nail.

When I called Roger Stone early Friday evening, he was in the midst of doing an online interview with an evangelical Christian leader. He let me listen in. It was, shall we say, a revelation. Until recently about as un-devout as a lapsed everything could be, he earnestly recounted for an equally earnest interviewer how he’d been saved by Jesus Christ at a Franklin Graham rally.

“I stood up,” Stone said. “I accepted Christ as my savior. I felt like a cement block had been lifted from my chest.” His newfound faith had given him a ticket to eternal salvation and, perhaps, a stay-out-of-jail card.

When Stone finished, he got on the line with me.

“I know there is a lot of skepticism,” he said in the audial version of a straight face. “Who knows? A year from now you may be calling me Reverend Stone! What else am I going to do with all these white suits I own?”

Like God, President Trump was merciful, Stone said. Trump was a man of “enormous fairness and compassion” and would lift the burden Stone was facing.

The reward was carefully choreographed.

The announcement was timed to first allow Attorney General William P. Barr to lift his pantlegs over the muck as he passed over the dirty road. He solemnly concluded that Stone’s convictions had been “righteous” and the sentence fair. But when asked whether Stone deserved pardon or commutation, Barr demurred, saying that was entirely up to Trump’s discretion.

And Trump then delivered. On Friday night, of course.

I still find myself drawn to 1960’s TV music as the best of the TV soundtrack genre. Perhaps because the visual limitations of NTSC and 19” tubes, music may have been more important.

Sure, today there are composers who write decent themes for the small screen. But so much TV today is absent of artistic content - “reality TV” is about not artistry but about doing as little as possible.

The federal government has denied Gov. Tim Walz’s request for aid to help rebuild and repair Twin Cities structures that were damaged in the unrest following George Floyd’s death.

Walz asked President Donald Trump to declare a “major disaster” for the state of Minnesota in his request to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) on July 2. More than 1,500 buildings were damaged by fires, looting and vandalism in the days of unrest that followed Floyd’s May 25 death in Minneapolis police custody, racking up more than $500 million in damages, according to Walz.

The governor’s spokesman, Teddy Tschann, confirmed late Friday that the request for federal aid was denied.

“The Governor is disappointed that the federal government declined his request for financial support,” Tschann said in a statement. “As we navigate one of the most difficult periods in our state’s history, we look for support from our federal government to help us through.”

Many small businesses and grocery stores, pharmacies and post offices were damaged during the unrest. In his letter to FEMA, Walz said what happened in the Twin Cities after Floyd’s death was the second most destructive incident of civil unrest in U.S. history, after the 1992 riots in Los Angeles.

re: #71 Love-Child of Cassandra and Sisyphus

17 years… that’s how long after WWII when TV-land really started to reminisce about the war. So many shows with war themes:

Video

.

I don’t remember a lot of these at all (I was 13 that year). Some, though, like the Jetsons and The Beverly Hillbillies, became iconic. I thought McHale’s Navy was quite good, mostly because of Ernest Borgnine.

One almost forgotten show that made a great impression was Gene Roddenberry’s GE True, an anthology series based on re-enactments of real events. I have not seen it since it was canceled the same season, but I remember some specific episodes besides the ones described in the wikipedia article. There was one where some guys working at an electroplating shop accidentally mixed up 100 gallons or so of nitroglycerine and the local fire department had to deal with it. Another involved a Navy surgeon removing a live artillery shell from a wounded Marine on a ship off Okinawa. Another was about a British escape artist who was deliberately parachuted into Germany so he could be captured and instruct other PoWs in escape and evasion.

The very dramatic narration by Jack Webb set the tone nicely.

If you watch Press Your Luck, there’s one square that is NEVER a whammy, and always has a higher $ amount. Top row. Third from right. It’s the same even now in the updated show currently airing. I even think the 3rd square down on the right column too.

So, the debate here about whether to use the name “Karen” to describe an entitled forties or fifties something woman demanding particular preference because she (or he) believes they are simply entitled to it, is a slur, leaves me pondering. I don’t use the name that way, but language evolves. My own name of James is no longer used to mean “usurper,” that definition is deprecated. But it used to mean that. Not all Jameses.

It is regularly argued that:

“Boomer” used negatively doesn’t mean all boomers, particularly when a boomer says in self-defence “I don’t do that.”

“Me too” and “Time’s up” does not refer to all men, frequently when a man says in self-defence “I don’t do that.”

So I wondered where the pushback against the term “Karen” for the entitled middle-aged woman first became a complaint it was a slur, and started searching. It doesn’t refer to all Karens any more than complaints about Boomers don’t mean all Boomers or Black Lives Matter doesn’t mean fuque all those other lives.

The earliest on-line complaint I can find about Karen being an insult to all Karens and therefore people who use it are bigots comes from Julie Bindel, defending a friend named Karen when the name was used.

In case you don’t know who she is, she is a TERF, and since TERFs have nothing better to do in the time of the Trump virus, and they are funded by right-wing outrage machines like the Heritage Foundation, she latched on to the Karen meme to try to drive a wedge into discourse about what the name applied in that way represents.

The point is sealioning: By focusing on people named Karen who are not entitled assholes and promoting to them that they are being slurred by people who use the name to identify a set of entitled assholes, TERFs and their backers are successfully deflecting the debate from the conservative asshole to a debate about what to call them.

To continue the same, there’s been discussion that the interpretation of the phrase “defund the police” is hitting people to mean “abolish the police” and the GOP is pushing that message hard.

Like the usage of Karen to mean entitled white woman, it doesn’t matter what message or phrase comes from the left; the right-wing will always pervert it to mean something different and nefarious. They live for outrage, just as the TERFs pushing the message that anyone who uses Karen in that way is a bigot against anyone named Karen.

Opposing religious displays on public property doesn’t mean “liberals are making a war on Christmas.”

It doesn’t matter what a message is, whether it’s serious like Black Lives Matter or snarky like Karen. The conservative outrage must be fed a steady diet of false equivalences, and if it ropes in a few well-meaning liberals, so much the better.

Sadly I didn’t get traction on the latter.

I could go with Ivanka, but she doesn’t seem to be the person standing in a store with the proles demanding to see the manager.

The reason Karen came up in the first place is because there was a huge bump of baby girls named Karen over a short period of time though it was not used before 1930, dramatically rose in the Fifties and peaked suddenly in 1959 as the 12th most popular girl’s name and by 1990 was out of the top 100.

Karen (Goes to Baby Name Wizard)

Hence the use of the name.

What’s scary is now I imagine the huge number of wingnuts naming their daughters Ivanka. As of yet it is not in the top thousand, but is rising in popularity.

In fifty years people who are named Ivanka will be complaining “Not all Ivankas” when the name is used to describe a spoilt, entitled woman who never earned anything in her life but rises over others due to nepotism and favouritism from Daddy.

Jeffrey Toobin called President Trump’s granting of clemency to Roger Stone ― who was soon set to begin a 40-month sentence for lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing the House investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election ― as “the most corrupt and cronyistic act in perhaps all of recent history.”

WAPO:

“There are no doubt thousands of people in federal prison who deserved a presidential commutation more than Roger Stone. But after President Trump’s intervention on Friday, Mr. Stone will serve none of his prison sentence. The president may have had the power to help his longtime friend. But that does not make it any less a perversion of justice — indeed, it is one of the most nauseating instances of corrupt government favoritism the United States has ever seen.”

English naming conventions—could be worse. The writer Evelyn Waugh married a woman named Evelyn. Their friends distinguished them as “He-Evelyn” and “She-Evelyn”.

Lee girl and Lee boy was the naming convention of two of my dating friends in High Skool.

re: #56 Anymouse 🌹🏡😷

I took the bar back in 1989, and I’m gonna tell you that if someone told me on July 11 (end of the BarBri classes and beginning of 2.5 weeks of review) that my (three day) bar exam was going to be held in a huge room during a pandemic, I would have completely lost my shit. But some states are going forward. Here’s Oklahoma:

As part of the safety precautions, test takers will have their temperatures checked each day, they will be required to wear masks and the tables will be spaced out to allow for proper social distancing. The board has also asked all exam takers to self-quarantine for two weeks before the exam.

oklahoman.com

*snort* That’s what the 2.5 week review period IS. You’re not seeing ANYONE.

The young people today are under a lot more pressure because they’re graduating with ~10x the debt I had when I graduated. (I had $18,000 in loans for living expenses; it’s quite possible to be in debt ~$200K on graduation day in between tuition and living expenses.) They need to take the bar so they can go to work as lawyers as soon as possible. But let’s be clear, they’re risking their lives to take the bar and states not taking this into account are irresponsible as hell.

On the subject of requiring masks: Yesterday, I picked up my amusingly intoxicated friend to take him to our church tech team’s small group meeting. (No, the irony wasn’t lost on me.) By tradition, we get dinner - either ordering pizza for everybody, or just picking up our own food and eating together at the church. My friend wanted to go to the local meat market to get “a proper dinner”, but they require masks now, so he said, “I’ll just take my money elsewhere.” I told him I was glad they require masks and that they have absolutely earned my patronage. One thing, though, is that a man walked into the store not wearing a mask while we were sitting there. I’m uncertain if they asked him to leave or not - I didn’t stick around to find out; but knowing the people in this area, I bet he got his way.

Panhandle Public Health District gave demographic information on the fifth person to die here for capitalism due to the coronavirus epidemic.

She was a woman in her seventies. They made sure to note she had “underlying health conditions” (read: she was human).

PPHD also reports this morning a new case of a woman in her forties.

It still seems to me that younger adults forced to go out and work return home and bring the virus to their parents, killing them unwittingly.

Opening schools would be a first-class shyteshow. I expect Scottsbluff Public Schools to show a dramatic increase in the 10-19 case count, deaths in their parents, whilst the rest of the public school districts here remain closed because we flipped the school boards to control by the sane party.

Panhandle Public Health District notes the risk of coronavirus infection remains real, despite mixed messaging from the state governor relaxing restrictions.

Despite the governor’s complaints about releasing “too much data” the public health districts in the state continue to expand the data available to the public.

In addition, when he banned release of information about meat processing plants by the public health districts, the plants themselves started releasing data (I presume that’s because they want to show how serious this is and how it impacts their businesses).

CHEYENNE - More 25% of Laramie County’s 35,572 registered voters have requested an absentee ballot for the Aug. 18 primary election, a seven-fold increase from 2016.

Since the start of absentee voting July 2, the clerk’s office has mailed nearly 9,300 ballots to voters who requested them, and requests are still coming in, according to a news release. Voters have until the day before the primary to request a mail ballot.

Laramie County Clerk Debra Lee said the response from voters is “unprecedented.”

“Typically, we mail an average of around 1,600 primary election absentee ballots during the 45-day period of absentee voting,” Lee said in the release. “This year, the number of requests we have for absentee ballots is staggering.”

More at the (Cheyenne) Wyoming Tribune-Eagle:

Laramie County sees seven-fold increase in absentee ballots from 2016 primary election

I don’t know how the election will shake out in Wyoming. That said, Laramie County (seat Cheyenne) is the most populous county there, and generally large turnouts favour Democrats.

And Roger Stone goes home with a huge smile on his face (which was plastered all over the media), while Trump is still stuck with all of ‘his’ problems and still having to worry about how much Roger Stone knows almost everything about all his corruption. Will he stay quiet? Trump doesn’t really get a thing out of this except the risk of future blackmail or exposure if Stone gets unhappy. Stone is probably too smart to stand near windows.
