Microsoft wants to do a massive update to my computer, and I’m getting a headache, so this seems like a good time to log off and leave y’all alone. I know somehow you’ll struggle on without me. /s

Bob Cesca’s Patreon page today replayed his broadcast from 4 years ago right before the election.

Highlights, he defended 538 while other liberals were attacking him
Hillary was going down in the polls
Trump had a real chance of becoming POTUS
Most Dems were in denial at the late tanking of Hillary and thought she would make it.

Good time travel, Bob held up well

Yeah, I still remember that time reasonably well. Trump was a clear menace, but Comey and the fucking media really did a hatchet job on Clinton, and there was nothing but bad news for a solid two weeks before the election.

GOP continues to try to steal the election in Texas:

jaunte  Oct 30, 2020 • 5:05:55pm
“The petition — filed by state Rep. Steve Toth, R-The Woodlands, GOP activist Steven Hotze and two Republican candidates in Harris County — argued that drive-thru voting is an illegal expansion of curbside voting, which state law reserves for voters who have an illness or disability that could put them at risk if forced to enter a polling place.”

“What Pandemic?”

EPR-radar  Oct 30, 2020 • 5:07:36pm

The response from Harris county should be something like this. “The latest attempt by Republicans to deny people their voting rights is legally frivolous, morally contemptible, and axiomatically dishonest. It should be dismissed immediately with extreme prejudice.”

So cool. I started out with a cheap old Gibson Firebird and the low E was useless. It just rattled in the nut and I couldn’t afford to fix it. Then I got a MIM Tele and it was great. This summer I got the Firebird somewhat refurbished and for the first time I can really use the low-E. It’s really something to see a guitar that can can sound so good like that.

This was something like the Bay of Pigs in attempting to land a force of insurrectionists on another country’s coast, but instead of 1500 men, five tanks, and twenty planes, the plotters numbered about a dozen, with the usual cosplay set of small arms, a rubber raft, and related gear. Seven, all apparently Venezuelan insurgents, were killed. Two Americans, including Q-ball Airan Berry, were captured and sentenced to twenty years.

It is 9:00 PM in Philly and a city wide curfew is in effect until 6:00 AM tomorrow morning. One of my co-workers was showing me Facebook pages of threats of violence that are supposed to happen tonight and tomorrow night. I just told her that I will be turning out my lights early and that sort of thing does not happen in my neighborhood. Some folks will do anything to scare or intimidate others not to go out of their houses.

LPD & FBI Investigating Armored Truck Robbery

Lubbock Police Officers responded to a robbery of an armored truck shortly after 7:45 p.m. Oct. 27 at BBVA Bank, located at 8200 Nashville Ave. Investigators need the public’s assistance identifying the suspects.

The driver of the armored truck arrived at BBVA Bank to restock the ATM. After finishing restocking, he left the locked room with a duffel bag with the leftover cash from the previous restocking. As he approached the armored truck and was reaching for the key, he felt what he believed was a firearm press into his back and the suspect told him to open the truck doors. The driver complied, and the suspect forced the driver to enter the truck, and the suspect grabbed the duffel bag with the cash.

While in the truck, the suspect took more cash and placed it in the duffel bag. A second suspect then told the first suspect to hurry, and after the first suspect exited the truck, both male suspects fled on foot, heading southwest.

The robbers were wearing camo and ski-masks, just what you need to stay inconspicuous while you high-tail it on foot. I give it 72 hours for the FBI to make an arrest.

Bud is pleasant generic fizzy beer. I’ll even order it occasionally. (I’ll actually seek out Bud Light Platinum, low hops for the win.)

Now…. Miller Light is the absolute worst shit in a bottle. And it was the first beer I ever tried, from a keg at a lefty youth conference I went to in college with some friends. (I was a moderate who wanted a road trip. I might have gotten roped into some pro-weed street theater. Good fun.) I don’t understand how Miller is still in business - there must be a lot of masochist beer-drinkers out there.

Genuine Draft is quite good and Miller is Union Made. That still counts for much in certain places. However, for me it’s Leinenkugel’s from up here in the Northland that’s owned by Miller so they get my $$$ most often.

re: #269 dangerman

my experience:

- zte AT&T K88 tablet, android 7, 1.8gb is a dog
slooooowwww to load long lgf pages, but eventually does and then things are fine.
until i click on another chrome tab to copy/ paste some text or a link.
90% of the time, when i click back, lgf (or any other site) **reloads all over again**.

plus, in landscape mode the edit controls dont work - ie can’t bold, italics, blockquote etc

first world problems

From the last thread. I have a Huawei Android tablet with 3G of RAM and I use Edge, which is a Chrome variant (I despise Google). LGF MOSTLY works. I have the same problems you do posting in landscape mode. I can open tabs all day in Edge without affecting LGF, but if I run another Android app, I have to reload LGF, which takes a few minutes.

Previous to this, I had a Chromebook, which died this past spring. Twitter didn’t change its embeds until the summer, which is why I never took note of the problems. My other PC’s—an Asus Windows tablet with 4G RAM, and my “big” gaming PC with 16G and a Ryzen CPU, work with LGF no problem. (I’ve never tried LGF with my Asus Android phone.)

The Republican Party Has Become a Toxic Superfund Site

Her essay ends:

There aren’t any honest opponents among Congressional Republicans. Eight years of total obstruction followed by an unwillingness to hold the most corrupt president in this country’s history accountable has made that clear. The GOP has revealed itself to be toxic.

Former President Barack Obama discussed this toxicity during an appearance on “Pod Save America” and the fact that it has made governing impossible. How should Democrats respond?

What I have concluded, is that the answer is to change some of these structural impediments to just getting stuff done…I think that if you continue to see the kind of systematic rejection of even reasonable compromise there, there comes a point at which you just have to change how the system works. The filibuster would be one.

Dealing with those obstacles to governing is now particularly urgent. To continue with the status quo is to invite further contamination. It’s time to clean things up, perhaps with the support of some honest opponents.

Of course, there will be those in the media who, through their lens of bothsiderism, suggest that any structural changes proposed by Democrats—such as ending the filibuster or court reforms—are simply a partisan power grab. But that will demonstrate their inability (or unwillingness) to grasp the realities of our current political climate. As Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein wrote eight years ago, “a balanced treatment of an unbalanced phenomenon distorts reality.”

He has been Senate confirmed in the past. If the wingnuts try and block a more liberal AG then Holder gets to stay there until they do?

Biden worked with Holder for years.Holder still has his list of folks to go after.

Not seeing a downside unless he wants the job full time instead?

I’d be fine with that. As for the main job, I really like Doug Jones should he lose re-election but another name has gotten my attention besides Sally Yates, another good name- Xavier Becerra. He succeeded Harris as AG in California and he’s worked in Congress before. The great thing is there are a lot of qualified names that Biden will be able to recruit. This is why I’m happy with Biden as the nominee. He’ll be able to attract top talent in a way that a guy like Bernie could never.

I lived in Philly from 2007 to 2017 and just outside of it now.

1) Pittsburgh Steelers
2) Pittsburgh Steelers
3) No
4) Neither.

In case it isn’t obvious I moved to Philly from the Pittsburgh area. Was asked by former Pittsburgh coworkers a few years later at a large group meeting if I was now an Eagles fan*. I responded that if I’d lived in Philly and moved to NYC whether they’d have expected me to become a Giants fan.

* - I’ve discovered that the Philly sports fans are pretty tolerant of the Pittsburgh sports teams - except for the Penguins since Sidney Crosby lives in their heads. If you wear Steeler or Pirate stuff you might get needled a bit, but generally just someone taking a fun jab.

I don’t get the whole anti-Penguins/Crosby thing. Growing up, the Rangers were the Flyers’ main rivals. I utterly missed that memo.

Since at least the early 60s. IMO the rot of the GOP goes back significantly further (at least to the Depression era). E.g., with the wisdom of hindsight one can see in the GOP under Ike a party that learned nothing from its Depression era mistakes that was given an undeserved chance to get back into the mainstream.

I’m not aware of the GOP being utterly useless as a political party in Teddy Roosevelt’s time, so I suspect the GOP’s first steps toward the dark side were done between then and the Depression. Perhaps it is as simple and stupid as the roaring 20s permanently corrupting the party.

I think the point of no return moment for them nationally is nominating Goldwater in ‘64. CRA-64 was the most important civil rights legislation and they nominated an opponent of that but there were other things before that such as Ike turning a blind eye to McCarthy(I like Ike but that’s a stain), the America First movement and its anti semitism regarding FDR and WWII, and the little known but since you brought up the 20’s Hoover’s response as Commerce Secretary to the Great Flood (I’ve seen al ot of AFrican-American historians say that along with Eleanor Roosevelt’s support for Civil Rights that they mark as the turning point for many black voters).

I was reading about the so called LGBT free zones in Poland. I’m curious how Poland has taken a hard right turn socially while Ireland has embraced liberalism- they legalized both abortion and same sex marriage at the ballot and their last taoiseach was an openly gay son of an Indian immigrant. Now from what I understand there’s been some disillusionment with the Catholic Church in Ireland so that probably plays a role too but it’s interesting how these two countries who are linked with Catholicism have taken two radically different paths. Makes me sad about Poland, I was there a few years ago and my grandma’s family is from right near the border.

Teddy was slightly edgy for the 1900 GOP.

The racists came into the fold when LBJ, the VRA, and Nixon’s Southern Strategy hit in the 60s. And Reagan’s dig whistle embrace of the racism along with the evangelicals cemented in a reliance in being the Stupid Party since they had to kowtow more and more to the religious nuts as they grassrooted their way to more and more influence after being used by Reagan.

Yeah, the civil rights era was definitely an important turning point. But my point is that a normal political party responsive in a normal way to real issues faced by its voters wouldn’t have gone for shit like the Southern strategy to begin with.

It all makes a lot more sense if we assume that even back in the 50s the GOP was essentially the corrupt enterprise it is today, with its establishment power players having no goal other than tax cuts for the rich and looking for ways to dishonestly find votes for that agenda by any means possible.

Which should in turn give us some good clues on election night as to how it’s going. SC is a good example: it will apparently report pretty much all of its votes quickly, per 538. Biden winning SC outright would tell us we have a tsunami - but we don’t need him to post a win in SC to get a good sense of direction.

If it’s 52-48 Trump in SC with all the numbers in, that should be a really good sign that NC and GA are headed our way. If it’s 58-42 Trump, we’re in for a long week.

Florida should also have most of its numbers in by late Tuesday night, and obviously a Biden edge there pretty much seals it.

Sorry, but what I see is punditry-based failure of object permanence in which a thing didn’t happen until the pundit noticed.

Because “can’t be caricatured as a socialist” is a, bullshit measure when, as a non-pundit, one looks at the fact that (1) no Democratic candidate has ever fitted the quality “socialist” except in the lazy and ever-expanding usage deployed by right wing pundits, (2) they have, in fact, been so successfully caricatured as socialist that there’s a billion-dollar commentary industry and multiple reactionary culture movements that derive their identity from resisting “socialism.”

I’m seriously fucking sick of giving these people credit for brief moments of awareness that only happen because they have refused and still refuse to believe that any leftist critique of US politics is simply by default wrong.

I demand, at minimum, a decade of wiping their own asses before I applaud.

Barring that, admitting that Donald Trump rests atop a Ronald-Reagan-shaped throne of patted-down excrement that’s been diligently sculpted by fifty, sixty years of Republican choices.

Because what I’m seeing is a deep cynicism and narcissism in which these people were present for every. single. step. of. this. authoritarian. shitshow’s. buildup. and now they’re upset because the result isn’t pretty enough to cover up this particular charnel house…as opposed to the previous charming, picturesque charnel houses of AIDS crisis, all those coups we funded, Iraq…..

Someone needs to ask that weasel about that.

All the world knew Meadows was lying his ass off about the hundreds of millions of doses of a nonexistent vaccine. But IOKIYAR strikes once again.

It sure would be nice for the media to treat lies from Republicans the way they treat lies from Democrats.

I have seen a wreck like that, but it was one species, one plant. A huge cholla. That looks like quite the garden on him. I’ll bet alcohol was involved in that case, also.

I want more than that. E.g., “Mr Meadows, as we’ve just established, you were lying your ass off about millions of vaccine doses the other day. Given that, and you numerous other lies on record, why should anyone believe whatever bullshit your lying piece of shit boss has tasked you with slinging to the press today?”

The possibly topical case of Laura Ingalls (1893-1967) (not THAT Laura Ingalls, though she was a distant relative and was friendly with Laura’s daughter, Rose Wilder).
THIS Ingalls was a record-setting American aviator and Nazi who was arrested and jailed for failure to register as a paid German agent during World War II. At her trial, the prosecution revealed that her German handler had encouraged her to work with the isolationist America First Committee.

Ingalls gave speeches for the Committee in which she derided America’s “lousy democracy” and gave Nazi salutes. Von Gienanth praised her oratorical skills. She had made a careful study of Mein Kampf, on which she based many of her speeches, as well as pamphlets by Hitler such as My New Order and Germany and the Jewish Question, and Elizabeth Dilling’s books The Roosevelt Red Record and The Octopus. She expected Hitler to win the war; in April 1941, she wrote to a German official, “Some day I will shout my triumph to a great leader and a great people… Heil Hitler!” After the German declaration of war on December 11, 1941, she went straight to Washington to receive a list of contacts from von Gienanth, and was arrested a week later.

She served 20 months.

Prison had not altered her views, however. A few months after her release, she stated her opinion of the Normandy landings:

This whole invasion is a power lust, blood drunk orgy in a war which is unholy and for which the U.S. will be called to terrible accounting… They [the Nazis] fight the common enemy. They fight for independence of Europe—independence from the Jews. Bravo!

She was later arrested trying to cross into Mexico with a stash of Nazi propaganda but was not prosecuted. She applied for pardons after the war but was consistently refused.

Well we do know that the drug companies have started mass producing vaccine candidates in the event they are approved. Can’t find any info on how many are on the shelf ready to go though.

Jeezus. Glad they didn’t pardon her. Sheesh. I recently discovered I might be a distant relative of Lord Haw Haw. I always tell people I hope I’m related to the most famous Joyce though I’m more likely related to Haw Haw but oh well at least my Grand Uncle did the family well during his service as a chaplain.

He’s better with numbers than I’ll ever be but I don’t think he understands voter psychology.

To be fair, he doesn’t try to.

His process of just analysing the numbers, without trying to think or say that much affect psychology is probably the correct way to a meta-analysis, but does mean his output is limited by the input.

re: #207 makeitstop

We saw a news article last week that the legendary Strand book store in Manhattan was struggling due to lack of walk-in customers, so today we drove in and bought some books!

The wife got a cookbook and a book with cool knitting tricks. I got a book about William R. Murrow, The Cartel by Don Winslow, a photography book, and the memoirs of one Norman Harris, proprietor of Norman’s Rare Guitars in Encino, CA.

And a cool book bag, of which they have hundreds of different designs. Hopefully, it helps. NYC without the Strand would not be good.

That bookstore is owned by the granddaughter of the founder; she’s been working there since she was 6 years old. She’s married to Senator Ron Wyden (Oregon). It’s a union shop.
