So I just saw the story about the Dems accepting the $908B Repub offer as the “starting point for talks.” So it’s a classic Dem “win”: Spend months insisting that you will not budge, budge little by little as time goes on, and then finally capitulate with promises that you’ll fix it all “later.”

Amazing what happens the moment election pressure eases up.//////

Here in Czech Republic, we’re coming out of a broad retail and restaurant closure today. The government’s hand was forced because of a class-action lawsuit filed by retail shop and restaurant owners - because there was no compensation in this most-recent second shutdown. If the Constitutional Court rules on their behalf (which is a very strong possibility), the government is going to have to fork out billions of crowns in compensation and they’ve admitted they have no idea where that money’s gonna come from.

Well, number 26 on there basically tells churches to go back to outside church or forego meeting at all. Megachurch Grace Community Cult Church in Sun Valley is under the LA city order, and its pastor, John MacArthur, has been tussling with the county health department. I believe there’s yet another in the long series of hearings either next week or the week after in a case involving the LA County Health Department, because MacArthur continues to insist on meeting in his church, with no social distancing and no masks. I honestly wonder if the city will actually step in and padlock the damned church this Sunday. It should.

Hecuba's daughter  Dec 2, 2020 • 10:20:08pm

Let’s remember that a couple weeks ago Trump entertained the Michigan GOP legislative leaders in Washington. Hopefully Rudy’s freak show before the Michigan legislature remains just that and doesn’t allow the GOP members the excuse to succumb to Trump’s entreaties to override Michigan law and appoint their own slate of electors. Trump is still trying to steal the election. We underestimate his evil and cunning at our own peril— especially given that much of the GOP is in thrall to him. He’s escaped justice his entire life — and every time we believe that he is finally defeated, he arises again like Michael Myers. This has gone on way too long — and few in the GOP leadership are willing to end it — which certainly gives Trump the hope that he can pull this off.

Garcetti had NO BUSINESS being on the list for any cabinet position based on his obsession with gentrification allowing speculators to tear down old buildings and replace them with “Luxury” apartments not subject to rent control. Garcetti is even worse than Villagairoisa who let gentrification run unchecked. Garcetti’s legacy here in Koreatown are all the tents set up that block whole lengths of sidewalks.

To believe that Donald Trump not only won reelection, but did so by a “landslide,” you have to believe that one or more foreign nations conspired to engage in simultaneous schemes to hack voting machines, manufacture faux ballots, and corrupt/deceive numerous state officials in several states in order to allow Joe Biden to win by less than 80,000 votes while also allowing Republicans to win back numerous House seats and potentially retain the Senate majority.

To believe that Joe Biden won, all you have to believe is that a federal election conducted in one of the most trying periods in modern US history led to a convoluted but ultimately valid result. That millions of Americans voted against Donald Trump but could not bring themselves to support Congressional Democrats, and any “irregularities” are due in part to efforts by Republicans in several state to fuck with the election through totally legal (if bad faith) efforts such as preventing the early counting of mail-in ballots so that their submission as one bulk count looks “suspicious.”

Now, which seems like more of a conspiracy theory?

After two public hearings, Papillion will vote on a mask mandate Thursday (Omaha World-Herald)

Papillion is a suburb of Omaha. We continue our piecemeal approach to this while the state spirals out of control.

Two city councilors voted against waving the third reading of the bill, which pushes it out farther.

Several people spoke in favour of the mandate. Some of the anti comments are below.

More than a dozen people spoke against the mandate. Some questioned the science behind the effectiveness of masks, while others said mandates are pitting community members against one another.

One opponent, laundromat owner Peter Mayberry, was the first person in Omaha to receive a citation for violating Omaha’s mask mandate.

Mayberry, who owns Anytime Laundry, said he believes the virus is real but doesn’t believe the government should be requiring people to wear masks.

“You’re putting people in impossible situations,” Mayberry said.

Melissa Panko, a member of Papillion’s Library Board, said a high number of people in Papillion already wear masks and questioned why a mandate was necessary.

Councilman Tom Mumgaard said many laws are designed for the minority of people who don’t act responsibly.

“One of the obligations we have as elected officials is to lead people to responsible behavior,” Mumgaard said.

There are no words which will satisfy the right or the moonbat left. It is no different now discussing the difficulties of cruel policing than it was during the Civil Rights Era, where endless barrels of ink were spilt telling people they needed to be civil, change their language, wait for everyone else to catch up, &c.

You get the same protests over “defund the military.” Everyone knows the USA is not going to literally disband our military like Costa Rica did.

The outrage on the right is entirely performative, and the outrage from the moonbats is they don’t get their pony now.

And yet for all the outrage from the moonbat left whose whims we supposedly need to cater to, Joe Biden won in the largest landslide since Herbert Hoover’s defeat.

The moonbat left can get what they want incrementally, or they can have it all taken away by conservatives.

I’ve been to Haines on a cruise ship, our thrusters were fucked so we couldn’t make our intended ports. Nice town, not as modern and urban as Juneau. We took a tour of a wildlife animal trainer’s compound out in the sticks, about a 90 minute bus drive into the forest.

Rep. Don Bacon is the recently reëlected Republican from NE-2.

Congressman Don Bacon, R-Neb., is in quarantine after being exposed to COVID-19.

According to a press release from Bacon’s office, the congressman was exposed to COVID-19 last week.

He is following CDC guidelines and is quarantining for 10 days “out of caution,” said Danielle Jensen, a spokeswoman. He has not been tested, she said.

She did not say where the exposure took place.

Based on CDC guidelines, he is cleared to return to Washington D.C. by Friday if needed for a vote.

McAlarney defied the rules, last week declaring his business an “autonomous zone” and marking those words on the sidewalk to try to protect himself from COVID lockdown rules.

But it didn’t work. He got slapped with more than a dozen summonses.

This is another example of wingnuts using whatever words the left uses as either a personal attack or twists them (as in the Autonomous Zone in Seattle, or claiming “my body my choice,” or claiming the phrase “Black lives matter” is racist).

It’s why I’m not bent out of shape over messaging on “defund the police.”

Numerous current and former staffers at VOA and USAGM say they fear Pack will take more actions to damage the agency before he departs. Several senior aides are departing or have already done so, including his chief of staff Emily Newman and Frank Wuco, a former radio talk show conspiracy theorist who previously held other roles inside the Trump administration.

Michael Pack is going to do all the damage he can on the way out. Joe Biden has already said he will be replaced.

The FBI is promoting an at-home exercise app that also tracks your phone’s location and data (Business Insider)

If you are interested in privacy, this is probably not the app for you.

In a statement to Business Insider, an FBI spokesperson reiterated the app’s privacy statement, adding that “the app does not gather or save any personal information other than what you select for your profile.”

But the app’s privacy statement makes room for some tracking: When FitTest accesses pages from the official FBI website, it says, “fbi.gov’s privacy policy applies.” The fbi.gov privacy policy states that “individuals using this computer system are subject to having all of their activities monitored and recorded.” The FitTest privacy statement doesn’t explicitly state which app functions fall under the fbi.gov privacy policy and which do not.

No, this is a cell phone app.

As of yet, the FBI has not come up with a cross-platform app which will operate on my rotary telephone.

The FBI’s workout app, called FitTest, offers a rudimentary interface that guides people through sit-ups, push-ups, and jogging routines. But the app also collects data from users’ smartphones, including their location and the WiFi networks they connect to.

One Android user posted screenshots of the FitTest permissions in a tweet that was shared widely this week, noting the data the app was collecting. Business Insider confirmed that the app requests location and network data — per iOS and Android privacy functions, users have to manually grant permission to share location data before the app can track it.

For me it was “Alla Hornpipe” from Handel’s “Water Music.”

I used it as the Groom’s March for my first wedding.

Strangely, since my first wife dumped me on the street, it is no longer an earworm to me.

Our wedding was the first held in the little Presbyterian church in Bartow, Fla. in over ten years. The organist, who was classically-trained, lit up when I suggested that tune. (I imagine endless Presbyterian hymns were not exactly a challenge for her.)

building since FDR and unleashed during the Civil Rights years. Trump supporters are fighting for the right to take away all rights of anyone not exactly like them.

Deep down inside, I am a fan of a lot of conservative principles: personal responsibility, individual initiative, free market mechanisms, etc.

But not the Free Market as an ideology, and not one in which individuals and families with limited resources are expected to negotiate one-on-one with international, multi-billion-dollar corporations for terms of employment, insurance coverage or financial services.

But any attempt on the part of individuals to band together in unions or consumer groups to level the playing field is seen as “removing responsibility/stifling initiative”.

My wife used to repeat the refrain about Mayor Richard J. Daley of Chicago registering dead people to vote through his alleged machine politics. She got that from the Libertarian Party in Colorado, but the claim originates from Republicans.

I had to sit her down and show her step-by-step how that claim came about originally from Illinois Republicans in 1960 over Nixon losing Cook County by a sliver of votes in the Kennedy-Nixon election.

Republicans insisted that he must have had dead people voting because the vote from the suburbs came in strong for Nixon, and as the night’s counting went on Kennedy narrowed the margin then surpassed him.

Today’s claims by Republicans of dead people voting are not new. They cannot conceive of someone disliking their candidates, so it must be some sort of cheating.

SECRETARY RAFFENSPERGER WARNING: ‘MOVING’ TO GEORGIA TEMPORARILY IN ORDER TO VOTE IN JAN. 5 RUNOFF IS ILLEGAL AND WILL BE PROSECUTED (State of Georgia Website)

(ATLANTA) - Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger issued a warning Friday to out-of-state partisans seeking to vote in the Jan. 5 runoff election for Senate: Moving to the state with the sole purpose of voting and leaving is illegal and is considered voter fraud. Per O.C.G.A § 21-2-561, it is a felony to register to vote in Georgia if you are not a resident of Georgia with no intention of leaving and is punishable by up to 10 years in jail and a $100,000 fine.

“Let me be clear, those who come to Georgia with the intention of voter fraud will be prosecuted,” said Secretary Raffensperger. “We thoroughly investigate every single allegation of voter fraud. Anyone is welcome to move to the state named the No. 1 place to do business. However, let me warn anyone attempting election mischief: If you illegally participate in our elections, you might be spending a lot more time in Georgia than you planned.”

Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger has a team of seasoned investigators who have been looking into every allegation of illegal voting and fraud. The secretary’s investigators will look into voter fraud allegations, including any allegations of non-residents registering to vote or voting.

Depending on which counter you use, we had either over 3,000 covid19 deaths yesterday, or just under 3,000 deaths. Either way, it’s a horrific milestone. The CDC’s Redfield is warning we’ll have 450,000 covid19 deaths by February. Given that we’re at 270,000+ now, that means we’d be seeing 60,000 deaths a month between now and then.

This is avoidable. Wearing a fucking mask and social distancing slows and stops the spread. Washing hands stops the spread. Not going to holiday parties where masks are not in sight stops the spread.

But the GOP is intent on making the body count as high as possible. There’s no sane rationale for any of this other than to consider that they are nihilists and don’t care how many die.

I know GOPers will point to the high death tolls in NY, NJ, MA, and CA, but let’s cut through that. Those deaths occurred in the early weeks of the pandemic when little was known about the disease, treatments, and there was a severe lack of tests, ppe, masks, and Trump was blocking aid and support to the states at a critical moment. There were missteps to be sure, but that first wave should have been the clarion call to do everything to avoid the second wave by masking/social distancing to prevent spread.

Not only did GOP states refuse to follow the CDC public health guidance, they’re actively touting their refusal as a badge of honor. They politicized wearing masks and got their addled base to engage in terrorism against Democrats seeking to protect their residents from the spread of a deadly outbreak.

The GOP are irredeemably amoral and corrupt. The states that now see the highest per capita new cases are those where the GOP refuses to follow health expert guidance.

It didn’t have to be this way. A halfway competent national strategy could have minimized the death toll after the initial wave, and kept the cases in check into the fall without having to resort to renewed “lockdowns”. Instead, we’ve become the epicenter of the world’s pandemic and there’s no end in sight because a vaccine doesn’t just stop the pandemic. It takes time - time in which still more will die in the interim.

All the deaths are on Trump and the GOP. All of them. It started with Trump’s nonstop lies and obfuscations about the dangers, their politicization of the masking/social distancing strategies, inciting and enabling right wing domestic terrorists to go after Democrats who want to protect their residents from further spread of the pandemic, and the surge in cases that was avoidable with a reasoned approach.

i posted this the other day when Cornyn said this on biden not “coordinating” with Republicans on his cabinet picks

I really am a little surprised … that there hadn’t been at least some consultation. I mean, some of these problems can be avoided and people, you know, saved from the embarrassment if there would simply be some consultation on who they’re thinking about,”

now he’s said this (from electoral-vote.com)

Some Republican senators (but not all) are actually acting like senators first and partisans second. For example, Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) said that he has “philosophical problems” with Janet Yellen as secretary of the treasury, but he could see no reason to oppose her nomination. Specifically he said: “My attitude is that, absent conflicts of interest or other—lack of temperament, and uber-partisanship—beyond those, that [Biden] should get the people who he wants to serve him.” Note that this statement kind of implies that Biden, and not Trump, is going to be sworn in on Jan. 20…

Considering that among those hardest hit by covid19 are … cops, that’s a rather odd thing to say.

According to the Officer Down Memorial Page, which tracks all those officers killed in the line of duty during a given year, the leading cause of death for cops in 2020 is…. drumroll: covid19. The second leading cause of death: firearms.

For 2020: 155 have died from covid19. Gunfire accounts for 46 (including inadvertent). 9/11 ailments account for 4.

In prior years, the leading cause of death is invariably firearms.

Yeah, I don’t see a problem there… /sarc

lawhawk  Dec 3, 2020 • 7:01:14am

Excess deaths from covid19 are likely well over 400,000, which means that the 270,000+ death toll is undercounting by a third.

via electoral-vote.com on maybe there are starting to be cracks in the dam

It is relatively rare for a very high-profile journalist to say that a very high-profile party official is so dishonest and untrustworthy that reporting his or her take on an article would be deceiving the public. And no, it’s not Maggie Haberman vs. Donald Trump. It’s about two Michigan natives, Politico’s chief political correspondent Tim Alberta and RNC Chair Ronna Romney McDaniel.


it’s a quick read.
alberta wrote an article calling mcdaniel a liar and didnt contact her for comment. here’s the money quote from Tim Alberta’s response.

To answer your question: Our editorial standards are fairly uniform across mediums/verticals. 99.9% of the time, I will request comment from a principal or organization I’m writing about. However, there are extremely rare instances when the person/entity has proven so dishonest and so untrustworthy that I feel no obligation to provide them a platform from which to deceive the public. Sadly, that is the case with Chairwoman McDaniel and her staff at the RNC.

- i don’t care if obama is willing to be injected with the bill gates chip, i’m not gonna

and on and on

as i’ve said, i know how science works.
when it becomes available to us peons there will be experience and evidence enough.
me and mine will get the vaccine to protect ourselves.
getting society at large on board is not my personal problem and will have to wait.
we will still wear masks, because no one else can tell by looking at me whether i’m ‘safe’ or not.
we will also continue to take whatever safety measures are recommended like limited contact, distancing, washing, etc. because these are minimally inconvenient and a vaccine isn’t a guarantee.

what we might find is more comfortable is easing up just a bit on the ‘limited contact’.
- no, absolutely no bars, restaurants, or anything ‘unnecessary’ like that .
- we might consider road travel by car and hotel so mrsdm can see her family.

For me it was “Alla Hornpipe” from Handel’s “Water Music.”

I used it as the Groom’s March for my first wedding.

Strangely, since my first wife dumped me on the street, it is no longer an earworm to me.

Our wedding was the first held in the little Presbyterian church in Bartow, Fla. in over ten years. The organist, who was classically-trained, lit up when I suggested that tune. (I imagine endless Presbyterian hymns were not exactly a challenge for her.)

My mother was an excellent pipe organist (pianist), and as a child I used to love to sit and watch her hands and feet fly and the huge pipes blast. She didn’t have anyone to help her turn pages or manage stops, but I did like how this clip shows the athleticism involved.

re: #69 Jack Burton

She is right to a point. But, the left is notorious forgetting that they need to convince others to get things done. Yet again. Getting real reform of policing in the US is going to be an uphill battle waged while pissing in the wind of an C5 hurricane. There’s no reason to alienate a huge chunk of the population from word one. There’s no bonus rewards for doing this on the nightmare difficulty setting.

There will be plenty of things that will make people uncomfortable on this trip.

Obama did a whole interview on why “defund” is really bad wording to start.

Rose Twitter completely lost their shit. Yet again.

I hated the phrase “defund the police” from the start — it doesn’t matter whether the concept is perfectly justified. If you have to explain a simple phrase, you are losing the argument. Most people do not have the time in their lives to investigate the underlying meaning of a topic; it’s bad enough when the other side develops a phrase that sticks to you no matter how hard you try to refute it. But this is a self-inflicted wound magnified by the refusal to back away. A lot of potential voters will hear the phrase and immediately step back from support — this may have been the difference between 2018 and 2020 in the red-to-blue-to-red districts. “Restructure the police” or “reform the police” or “redesign policing” would have conveyed the message without the toxic side effects.

Florida has peaked for now, but expect a second (third) wave to overshadow California.

And Spring Break is just around the corner…

Have to admit I don’t trust any Covid-related figures out of Florida. I am also 100% confident that if the Georgia voting situation happened in Florida, DeSantis would figure out some way to have the vote switched to Trump. The Republican GOP, even more than most states, is a totally criminal organization.

Well, other than the fact that they’ve been used before and roundly ignored…..

The other things to think about is that to a certain extent, the more radical phrases and factions might be NECESSARY to make change. Think back to Martin Luther King and Malcolm X; present to wider society the overwhelming need for change, but make clear there are choices—-you either get on the the reform train, or face the fury of the defund faction.

In some ways, this is an indictment of the moderate change position, in that they haven’t seized the moment to craft positions that demand change but aren’t as toxic to conservative segments.

I’m watching a very similar situation with a friend. Bass player for a pretty popular NY band in the 90s, moved to Texas after the band ran its course and got a law degree. Turned into a hard core Red Hat and bought into the ‘no worse than the flu’ mantra, refused to wear a mask.

About two weeks ago, he ‘caught a cold.’ By the day after Thanksgiving he couldn’t breathe and went to the hospital.

Today he’s on a ventilator with his organs failing, and it turns out he infected his wife. I honestly don’t think he’s going to be with us much longer.

I’m sad that we could lose him - he was always a real sweetheart of a guy despite his ‘rock star’ status. But I’m fucking angry as hell to think this all could have been avoided had he just worn a goddamn mask.

re: #173 lawhawk

Depending on which counter you use, we had either over 3,000 covid19 deaths yesterday, or just under 3,000 deaths. Either way, it’s a horrific milestone. The CDC’s Redfield is warning we’ll have 450,000 covid19 deaths by February. Given that we’re at 270,000+ now, that means we’d be seeing 60,000 deaths a month between now and then.

This is avoidable. Wearing a fucking mask and social distancing slows and stops the spread. Washing hands stops the spread. Not going to holiday parties where masks are not in sight stops the spread.


I know GOPers will point to the high death tolls in NY, NJ, MA, and CA, but let’s cut through that. Those deaths occurred in the early weeks of the pandemic when little was known about the disease, treatments, and there was a severe lack of tests, ppe, masks, and Trump was blocking aid and support to the states at a critical moment. There were missteps to be sure, but that first wave should have been the clarion call to do everything to avoid the second wave by masking/social distancing to prevent spread.
…..

Illinois is a catastrophe — and it’s a very blue state. Of course, people forget that the bluest of states also have a lot of red voters — about 43% went for Trump. Too many people are maskless in the city and especially elsewhere in the state.

an organically originated concept that takes off (meme) like ‘defund the police’ is like a virus

once it has been coined / comes into being it takes on a life of its own and spreads - like a virus or a fire

the ones that spread a lot are not necessarily the quality ones or the intended ones - they’re the ones that replicate easiest

the idea behind it may be valuable and necessary and complicated while the meme becomes a shorthand

since it grew organically and caught on, then it’s too late

as opposed to a bunch of folks sitting in a room trying to hone, tweak, massage and carefully craft a campaign or representative slogan that they then hope will catch on - cf millions of effective ad campaigns or mascots

Death per day aren’t stopping at 3k. Double 9/11 per day isn’t unlikely in the next 2 to 3 weeks. 250k is certainly on the high end of the range, but with the way people are behaving, it can’t be dismissed by any stretch.

That right there, to me at least, is THE most horrible thing about all of this. They knew it was going to get bad, they knew a lot of people were going to die and they DID. NOT. CARE. They still don’t. They figure they have access to the best medicines and doctors for themselves and their families, so the rest of us can fuck off and die. Also, are GOP congresspeople going to go to the front of the line for vaccines? Because no. Not after what’s been done to the American people by these monsters. ESPECIALLY the ones who profited off the insider trading info and other information kept from the public.

My husband will get the vaccine before my son and myself because he is considered medically fragile. His doctor told him at his appt today that the hospital nearest to us should begin receiving their first responder/hospital workers doses before Christmas and then there’s supposed to be vaccines available for the medically fragile people by the end of the year, barring any mistakes or other glitches. My son and I will be the first ones in line when the vaccines are ready for us. But these assholes who have been feeding the spread of the virus by bullshitting the public shouldn’t be allowed jack shit, but I know a lot of these fucks will get ahead in line because they are wealthy and connected. I’ll hold my thoughts further because right now I am UP TO HERE with these assholes breaking everything and then whining it’s broken.

And its not going to stop.

No, it won’t. It is likely to accelerate dramatically when the GOP-instigated Thanksgiving and Christmas kill-offs start coming in, especially if (when) health care systems collapse in heavily affected areas.

Ouch. That’s almost more painful than a caustic retort. The justices literally did not give them the time of day.

correct
they gave them the day, not the time ;-)

Which will be almost every area of the U.S.

Just imagine the right-wing armed revolts that would be going on if the Dems were asking legislators and the courts to overturn an election.

Based on your risk profile, we believe you’re in line behind 268.7 million people across the United States.

When it comes to Florida, we think you’re behind 17.4 million others who are at higher risk in your state.

And in Duval County, you’re behind 842,100 others.

I’m never getting a shot

Wife works as a clerk at the local hospital. Essential job.
I work for cps here in the county. Essential job.
I figure I would not get one until readily available because the county is very red and very much of the mindset that there are better essential workers

Maybe not as bad as you think.

I fared a bit better, as I work in an “essential industry”; however, as I am not working in-person in the office, I feel that their questions lack a little bit of granularity. I would undoubtedly be behind the people who have to work in-person right now.

I am entirely focused on keeping my family alive through this apocalypse, because there’s nothing I can do for the brainwashed masses. Once my new GOP state senator is in office, I will be pleading with her that if she really is ardently pro-life not to vote to remove all pandemic restrictions in January.

There are around 115K people behind me in line.
I’m guess that would be mostly healthy adolescents. Or, they’re in front of me too, and it’s just us generally healthy middle agers left in line.
With my luck, the last 150K will be chosen to proceed alphabetically.

re: #303 Shiplord Kirel: Fan of USPS, Goodyear, and Oreo

I know it cannot be done in practical terms but it would be real justice if Covid denial were a factor in the rationing of care, something that is speeding toward us like a runaway freight train. There is no reason for the perpetrators of genocide, witting or otherwise, to get the same care and consideration as their intended victims.

It will be. These are also the people who will refuse to get vaccinated.

The entire Fox News lineup including Lew Dobbs need to get their shots on Live TV

I’d be happy to arrange for the brick wall, blind folds, and a quad .50.
