And Mr. Legend is being kind. Kemp doesn’t want to lose power to Democrats for reasons beyond the usual greed and avarice. He’s also up to his eyeballs in corruption, what he did to Stacey Abrams isn’t the only shit of his that was shady as fuck. When the full mess comes out, if it does, he’s in trouble and he knows it.

Whatagwan is a way Jamaicans say whats up or whats going on.

Usage notes. It is used throughout the Jamaican diaspora, including in hip-hop culture and by reggae music fans. The standard response is nagwan / nuttin nah gwaan (“nothing is going on”).

Just indulged in some Saturday takeout from the local Irish pub. They had Scotch eggs, which I adore, and I may have eaten wayyyy too much food but #worth. Today’s lunch/dinner was fish and chips; unfortunately, not traditional British chips, just regular fries, but they were tasty nonetheless.

Aviation stuff, junior spotter division:

Rat-55 is the one and only NT-43A, converted from a T-43 (Boeing 737) navigation trainer to measure and calibrate the radar (and probably other) signatures of various test aircraft.
There is a very similar civilian-registered 737 about which almost nothing is known.

The World’s Most Secretive 737 Just Showed Its Bizarre Self Over The Mojave Desert

When it comes to shy aircraft that we know exist, the Air Force’s wildly modified NT-43A flying signature measurement aircraft, known by its callsign “RAT 55,” really takes the cake. The nearly 50-year-old aircraft has no definitive home. It lives at either Area 51 or the Tonopah Test Range Airport and spends its very limited time in the air flying, usually in formation with stealthy aircraft, high over the desolate and sometimes inaccessible ranges that span large swathes of desert in California and Nevada. While online plane trackers have seen data associated with RAT 55 pop up here and there in recent months, nobody had spotted the bizarrely shaped test jet for what seemed like at least a couple of years, that is until now.

Baud over at Balloon Juice has a great suggestion:

I’d like some Dem to say we’re not going to pursue bipartisanship out of respect for Republicans. We respect that raising corporate taxes is as much an anathema to them as voting rights restrictions would be for us, and we’re not going to ask them to do that.

New Zealand is also a tiny country with a relatively small population. For reference, fewer people live there than live in Minnesota. Not to disparage what they’ve done; they’ve done an amazing job controlling the pandemic, and they should be applauded for that. But it’s not like we could do any of what they did here and it would work.

I’m tellin ya — the Republicans are more terrified of the infrastructure bill than anything else. Their entire motto for years has been “We can’t do anything big anymore,” and the mistake people have made is thinking they think it’s a bad thing. They want us to be essentially a nursing home where we sit around complaining about Colin Kaepernick and wonder whether The Great Men of 1950 and 1850 and 1750 would approve of us. The idea of Americans coming together and doing something big is their kryptonite.

As a kid in the 80s and 90s it rubbed me the wrong way as a Dodger fan when they kept trouncing the Dodgers, but as I grew up I realized just how offensive it was. I also follow the Cleveland team since I was born there, but haven’t owned anything with Chief Wahoo on it for 20 years. I’m glad they tossed him and are finally changing the name.

That happened to me a couple times in my early days on ActBlue; some donations had the recurrent box automatically checked and it was not until my next Visa statement that I discovered my error. I was able to contact the site and get certain donations reversed but after that experience, I was very careful to read what I was actually contributing. However, many donors are not as familiar with the navigation of various software sites.

By last summer, the Biden campaign had begun outraising Mr. Trump’s team, and the president was hopping mad. For months, years even, his advisers had been telling him how he had built a one-of-a-kind financial juggernaut. So why, Mr. Trump demanded to know, was he off the television airwaves just months before the election in critical battleground states like Michigan?

”Where did all the money go?” he would lash out, according to two senior advisers.

Inside the Trump re-election headquarters in Northern Virginia, the pressure was building to wring ever more money out of his supporters.

I find it fascinating to hear what terms are used by the broadcaster in English rather than some Cup’ik/Yup’ik phrase. I wonder what that means regarding the future of the language as the village isolation recedes.

We’ve had local shutdowns when cases outside managed isolation facilities* emerged, though they haven’t been the full lockdown from March last year which successfully broke transmission. With the last incident in Auckland (by far our largest city at about 1.5 million souls, or approximately 3 million soles) the city was isolated at level 3 - full lockdown is level 4 - and the rest of the country went to level 2. [about alert levels]

Isolating Auckland is particularly onerous because the city spans an isthmus and so public travel to and from Northland, population just shy of 200,000, was pretty much restricted to flights.

Contributors had to wade through a fine-print disclaimer and manually uncheck a box to opt out.”

As the election neared, the Trump team made that disclaimer increasingly opaque, an investigation by The New York Times showed. It introduced a second prechecked box, known internally as a ‘money bomb,’ that doubled a person’s contribution. Eventually its solicitations featured lines of text in bold and capital letters that overwhelmed the opt-out language.”

“The tactic ensnared scores of unsuspecting Trump loyalists — retirees, military veterans, nurses and even experienced political operatives. Soon, banks and credit card companies were inundated with fraud complaints from the president’s own supporters about donations they had not intended to make, sometimes for thousands of dollars.”

So like all of his past business ventures, Trump kept spending other people’s money figuring that the tap would never be turned off, was shocked when the flow began to run dry, and proceeded to scam his “investors” into dumping even more money in to bail his ass out.

And now the “investors” realize that his business venture was a flop, but he skipped out the back door while they’re left holding all his debts.

The term is “unenforceable”, the legal meaning of which is that the terms of the contract are so unreasonable that they could not be expected to be enforced in a mutually beneficial way. A court will not hold a party in violation if a contract is ruled unenforceable.

Completely agree about the first part, but beg to differ somewhat about the second. TFG does have one “platform” to strut on - to a disgracefully large number of people in this country, he is [still] the “ Real President” and/or “President-in-Exile”, and the focus of a sick political personality cult; and -inveterate conman as Trump is - he is going to milk (or try to milk) every last drop of “support” ( and of course, every last dollar) he can out of the loyal “base”.

re: #85 Jay C

Completely agree about the first part, but beg to differ somewhat about the second. TFG does have one “platform” to strut on - to a disgracefully large number of people in this country, he is [still] the “ Real President” and/or “President-in-Exile”, and the focus of a sick political personality cult; and -inveterate conman as Trump is - he is going to milk (or try to milk) every last drop of “support” ( and of course, every last dollar) he can out of the loyal “base”. And unfortunately, as long as there is a payoff in American politics for prioritizing prejudice over policy, he’ll likely succeed. Maybe.

Compare Donald Trump pre-2016 to Donald Trump now: He has no Twitter or Facebook accounts, he’s stuck issuing “press releases” that the press have almost universally panned and mocked, far-right media organizations don’t provide him the sort of instant access he once enjoyed through social media, and most of his spokespeople are currently dodging lawsuits from Dominion over the failed coup.

Does he have a flock he can still fleece? Sure. But that’s a finite pool of money, and it’s nowhere near what he once had. And without easy access to the media, he has no real way to refill that pool. So it’s not a matter of if, but of when he will finally exhaust it and thus his options for keeping away from total bankruptcy and the end of his “empire.”

We were just discussing this very thing yesterday: while the MLB All-Star game is obviously a big deal for baseball: it is only one “extra” game for the “home” field: one supposes that it will be a sellout, and perhaps attract some more local/out-of-town fans to the park than a regular-season game might, and (again, presumably) some increase in tourist-trade business - but $100 million? Sounds inflated to me, but then I don’t know….

It don’t take much digging around many Libertarian sites that complain about states/cities giving massive tax breaks to sports franchise owners to build new shiny stadiums.

Same thing (but in reverse) goes for airlines and airports - witness what happened to Pittsburgh’s Airport and US Airways in the mid 1990s - in this case, the business won and the city lost.

Someone needs to point Gov. Kemp to what happened to Pittsburgh and extrapolate that to Delta. It’s entirely possible to pull a business and operation HQ relocation, but it requires absolute secrecy - which, believe it or not, is doable.

Covid

This is a chart of infections of employees at my company. Most of us don’t work really close together, so probably 90% of those are due to people getting sick outside. Now, I work with a whole lot of Republicans, so, even though they’re engineers, they’re not always smart and the chart almost tracks the general population. But notice what happened in February when mother nature froze Texas, forcing people to stay isolated for just about a week.

re: #114 Belafon

Relevant to our discussion last thread over nuclear power.

From the referenced article:

The pond where the leak was discovered is at the old Piney Point phosphate mine, sitting in a stack of phosphogypsum, a waste product from manufacturing fertilizer that is radioactive. It contains small amounts of naturally occurring radium and uranium, and the stacks can also release large concentrations of radon gas.

It’s toxic material from fertiliser manufacture that’s been left abandoned by the original owners. The material has naturally-occurring uranium and radium in it (Commentator Anymouse has to get his Nebraska wellwater treated to remove similar contamination IIRC) and suddenly everyone is running around with their hair on fire shouting Radiation! and nuclear power is bad.

Like I said before, irrational.

Cobb county is badly overdeveloped in most areas. There’s shitty and shortsighted county planning, I could take you on a tour of failed strip malls and medical/office spaces on roads that have not been modified to handle exiting and entering, or to handle extra traffic. 50 acres was totally clearcut of thick woods not far from me 5 yrs ago, they built a bank there and nothing else. No one wants to be there because it’s a very awkward place to get in and out of. Lots of waste of resources, and likely lots of pockets lined with taxpayer dollars and tax breaks. And we’re low on affordable housing too. Cobb looks good on paper, but living in the area as a middle class person is becoming more difficult.

re: #97 Backwoods_Sleuth

The new Braves ballpark is a scam. It was brokered in a backroom deal to avoid the firestorm had the taxpayer funding gotten more attention. Braves got $400+ million to relocate from a perfectly fine stadium. They could have upgraded Turner field for $250 million, but the Braves wanted to move to the burbs and to be closer to their white suburban base, not the urban core just minutes from downtown.

The team’s motivations were racist in operation, even if their stated goals were not. They make it impossible for former Atlanta fans to get to the game via mass transit because there’s almost nothing there. There’s no rail and limited bus. That’s by design.

Taxpayers are on the hook for the costs, and it’s easily one of the worst ballpark deals in recent memory for a stadium that didn’t need to be built at all.
