Militias have been a part of America since its founding, but while 18th century militias aimed to protect the country, the heavily armed 21st century ones are trying to tear it apart. Here’s how one group planned to kidnap Michigan’s governor. #DailyShow #TrevorNoah #Militias

re: #19 Yeah Sure WhatEVs

It felt warm, like on the side of me I felt something warm,” she told WJBK. “I jump up and I seen his private area out and I screamed and that woke everybody up. By that time I actually looked at him and I see him shake himself off and I’m like this man just peed on me! I looked and there was a puddle of pee in the seats!”

Beverly told FOX 2 an off-duty police officer was among those who heard her scream and woke up. She says he restrained the man, whom WJBK is identifying only as a well-known pastor from North Carolina.

The report from FOX 2 says the pastor may have had a reaction to a sleep aid which he took. Beverly says the man didn’t say a word the entire time he was standing next to her during the alleged incident.

Beverly said she had to sit in her urine-soaked clothes for the rest of the flight, about three more hours, before it landed at Detroit Metro Airport. FOX 2 said police did take the pastor into custody with possible charges pending. The FBI handles investigations into incidents alleged to have occurred on airplanes.

Fucking horrific.

OK, I can understand wanting to spend a boring flight stacking Zs, but WTF sort of “sleep aid” make you want to piss so bad you just get up and whiz away in the aisle of the plane? On the nearest passenger?
And, if “three hours” out from Detroit, about just a hour into the flight?
Also, too: if anyone had to spend the remainder of the flight in urine-soaked clothes, it should have been Pastor Pisspot, not that poor woman…

re: #275 b_sharp

Started with an Atari 800XL, went to an Atari ST then on to a 386 based clone. I was coding in C and Fortran in DOS when Windows was all the way up to version 2.

Started with TRS-80 with 4K of RAM, then to an Apple IIc, then to the MCS system (primitive DTP), then to a PC-AT, then Coyote, then finally to a Zeos 386-25 that I installed a SoundBlaster and a 24/96 modem to connect to Prodigy and CompuServe.

I’ve been thinking about going to an Army surplus store and getting the basics of a first-aid kit. Sutures, bandages, splints, tourniquets.

If the election is not a blowout landslide, Trump *IS* going to try to mobilize armed thugs to try to steal it.

The MSM will point to people looting a CVS pharmacy for bandages as “Both sides are contributing to the violence.”

Ambien means having to explain to your partner why you were typing on a keyboard that was attached to the kitty bed.

To be fair, Ambien can cause you to go into a total fugue state and do shit you have no idea ever happened when you come to your senses.

A very similar thing happened not to me, but to two people I worked with. They were on a business trip and sharing a hotel room. They been out drinking and then during the night, one of them woke up to the other one taking a piss in the corner of the room, as he’d mistaken it for the toilet.

It is most likely bullshit, but sleeping pills can mess you up and make you sleep walk, sleep drive, sleep eat and I assume sleep pee. It has been successfully used as a defense in DUI cases involving sleep driving.

If There’s a President Biden, He’ll Have to Embrace the New Rules of the Game
Republicans are already vowing to strangle Joe Biden’s presidency in the cradle. He’ll have to give up on the party as a governing partner, and Senate Democrats will have to blow up the filibuster. Charlie Pierce joins the call to dump the filibuster.

I think he’s ready for that.

The Astrodome has bigly iconic status to folks of my generation, since it was the first of the enclosed mega-stadia. It was not the first indoor venue for footballs though. Football was routinely played in the giant airship hangars at Lakehurst NJ and from 1961 to ‘73, the Boardwalk Bowl was played indoors at the nearby Atlantic City Convention Center (now the Boardwalk Hall).

OK, I can understand wanting to spend a boring flight stacking Zs, but WTF sort of “sleep aid” make you want to piss so bad you just get up and whiz away in the aisle of the plane? On the nearest passenger?
And, if “three hours” out from Detroit, about just a hour into the flight?
Also, too: if anyone had to spend the remainder of the flight in urine-soaked clothes, it should have been Pastor Pisspot, not that poor woman…

It doesn’t sound likely to me either, but hallucinations, not knowing where you are, and similar are all side effects of Ambien.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — More than 100 absentee ballots were discovered in a dumpster Thursday in Jeffersontown.

The 112 ballots were discovered late Thursday morning by a contractor renovating a home near Tully Elementary School on Galene Drive. Several crates of undelivered mail were taken from the dumpster by members of the Office of the Inspector General shortly thereafter.

The ballots, yet to be filled out, were on their way to prospective voters.

“We don’t need that for Louisville,” said Nore Ghibaudy with the Jefferson County Board of Elections. “We don’t need that for the Louisville post office … and we don’t need that for the voters either.

“It’s very disappointing.”

Special Agent Scott Balfour, with the U.S. Postal Service Office of Inspector General, said the mail was intended for delivery in the 40299 zip code, which is mainly an area between Bardstown Road, Interstate 64, Hurstbourne Parkway and Interstate 265.

“The ballots and political flyers have already been returned to the USPS and will be delivered to customers today,” Balfour said. “USPS OIG Special Agents are working to identify who is responsible for discarding the mail. When the investigation is concluded, the case will be presented for federal prosecution to the U.S. Attorney’s Office.”

It was “civil” because Democrats aren’t going to act like babies and throw tantrums like Republicans have at other hearings, and Republicans know that all they have to do is prevent Barrett from screwing up to get her vote to the floor.

It’s true that the GOP always had the votes to get this turd out of committee, and there was nothing to be gained by Democrats trying to make it a circus.

Dianne Feinstein Heaps Praise On Lindsey Graham After Amy Coney Barrett Hearing

The club-atmosphere of the Senate is what makes anything work there… but it also keeps most things from being done that needs to be done.

“Elliott Broidy, a former top political fundraiser for President Trump and the Republican Party, plans to plead guilty to participating in an illegal foreign lobbying scheme and cooperate with investigators in the matter,” Bloomberg reports.

WTAF? I didn’t watch the hearings, so can anyone tell me what she’s talking about? I live in her state, so I could send her a blistering email at least.

HUG FOR A HIJACK! FEINSTEIN *PRAISES* POWER GRAB

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) showered Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) with praise as the confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett wrapped on Thursday with little drama, standing in sharp contrast to the contentious and acrimonious hearings for Justice Brett Kavanaugh that nearly blew up the Senate in 2018…

While Feinstein echoed other Democrats in opposing Barrett, the top Democrat on the committee took a more conciliatory tone throughout the hearing, welcoming her warmly as questioning began on Tuesday. “It’s wonderful to see you here,” Feinstein told Barrett.

GOP’s Sen. Sasse says Trump mistreats women, flirts with white supremacy and secretly mocks evangelicals

Sen. Ben Sasse eviscerated President Trump during a phone call with constituents in which the Nebraska Republican accused the president of cozying up to dictators, mistreating women, flirting with white supremacists and irresponsibly handling the coronavirus pandemic.

Sasse’s comments were disclosed by the Washington Examiner, which obtained an audio recording of the call, a campaign telephone townhall with Nebraska voters. Sasse’s spokesman verified that the reporting was accurate, but declined to answer more specific questions such as when the call happened.

I think not either. I’ve only seen him speak once honestly and it was just introducing his Dad with his sister. I sympathize with the guy knowing what I know about what he’s experienced. Not just the car accident as a child but his brother and addiction. I’m just sick of the slandering of him. He’s not gonna be on CNN nightly or on Twitter bashing his father’s opponents or pushing conspiracy shit. He’s trying to live in recovery which I know from second hand experience is difficult.

I remember when he was Mayor of New York: he was always held up as some sort of “New Model Republican” because he tempered his badge-sniffing racist neofascism by not signing on to the bulk of stock GOP prejudice-mongering; but it was all vaporware. Rudy was just another cronyistic hack: re-elected mainly because his D opponent was even worse: by 2001 (inflated 9/11 “heroics” notwithstanding) the City was pretty done with him. But 20 years on, his descent into ludicrous mega-hackery has been sad to see.

Yeah I’m sad to say I fell for a little of that. Being the Republican that would host SNL and make cameos in Adam Sandler movies did that to me but by the 2004 RNC, it was obvious to me that he was milking 9/11. And Biden funnily enough called him out on it with the famous noun, verb, 9/11 one liner.

This value surpassed the previous record set in 2015 and, again in 2016, by only 0.02°C (0.04°F). The month of September 2020 marked the 44th consecutive September and the 429th consecutive month with temperatures, at least nominally, above the 20th century average. The ten warmest Septembers have occurred since 2005, while the seven warmest Septembers have occurred in the last seven years (2014-2020).

Why yes there was…and there was a Government MANDATE that was signed into law by John Adams!

An Act for the relief of sick and disabled seamen[1] was passed by the 5th Congress. It was signed by President John Adams on July 16, 1798. The Act authorized the deduction of twenty cents per month from the wages of seamen, for the sole purpose of funding medical care for sick and disabled seamen, as well as building additional hospitals for the treatment of seamen.[1] While some argue this is the first Federal individual mandate levied on individuals for health insurance,[2] preceding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”), passed in early 2010, by nearly 212 years; others would point to the fact that this law solely regulated employers engaged in interstate and foreign commerce, and was enacted as a matter of national security.[3]

re: #254 The Pie Overlord!

When the Constitution was written white women were firmly 2nd class citizens with no need to further subjugate them. They were already firmly under the control of white men.

But now it is perceived by our right wing that women threaten a man’s “natural” position of power and authority. Forcing women into servitude by pregnancy is one way of returning them to their “proper” roles as men’s support system and baby incubators. It doesn’t matter if rape or incest is the source of the pregnancy- all that matters is that the woman is now legally bound to the man as his heir machine esp. if that means having to give up an education or good job in order to do it.

And that is what their is really about.

I say this as a Californian… Feinstein should have retired in 2018, if not in 2012. She’s been in the Senate since I was a freshman in high school, which at this point is about 2/3 of my life.

I am still, and will always be, grateful that she ignored the “fiscal conservatives” and spent $10 million of taxpayer funds doing an earthquake retrofit of Candlestick Park.

When Loma Prieta happened, it was clear she’d saved about 20,000 lives.

U.S. intelligence agencies warned the White House last year that President Trump’s personal lawyer Rudolph W. Giuliani was the target of an influence operation by Russian intelligence, according to four former officials familiar with the matter.

Trump had “shrugged his shoulders” at O’Brien’s warning, the former official said, and dismissed concern about his lawyer’s activities by saying, “That’s Rudy.”

re: #258 🌹UOJB!

Why yes there was…and there was a Government MANDATE that was signed into law by John Adams!

An Act for the relief of sick and disabled seamen[1] was passed by the 5th Congress. It was signed by President John Adams on July 16, 1798. The Act authorized the deduction of twenty cents per month from the wages of seamen, for the sole purpose of funding medical care for sick and disabled seamen, as well as building additional hospitals for the treatment of seamen.[1] While some argue this is the first Federal individual mandate levied on individuals for health insurance,[2] preceding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (“Obamacare”), passed in early 2010, by nearly 212 years; others would point to the fact that this law solely regulated employers engaged in interstate and foreign commerce, and was enacted as a matter of national security.[3]

Health care is a matter of national security.
