As recently as 2008, the Senate swimming pool was males-only, “because a lot of the senators like to swim naked.”

Kay Hagan complained to Chuck Schumer, then head of the Rules Committee, and he fought to change it. And it was a fight.

re: #187 No Malarkey!

If I recall correctly, Germany has very restrictive abortion laws.

I’ve been watching Berlin on Amazon. This is a 3 part German documentary about the capital in 1945, with the biggest emphasis naturally being on the harrowing final days of the Reich in April and early May. It follows accounts by several witnesses, with actors reading their words, interspersed with stills and live action clips. There are many accounts of rape by Russian soldiers during the battle and occupation, and one by an American after US troops arrived in July. One of the interviewees, a female French doctor who had been drafted by the Nazis and had decided to stay on during the occupation, describes the many women who were seeking legal abortions after being raped. These were usually authorized but there was some kind of bureaucratic rigamarole, with government officials involved.

From The Week’s article “The intellectual right contemplate an American Caesar”

I’m not saying the entire article is bad—it provides a very good description of the footsie being played between conventional rightist “thinkers” and bugnut monarchists—but it’s definitely a choice to describe Reagan courting George Wallace voters as “anodyne.”

I’m posting it, though, because the described discussion between Anton (the ‘Flight 93” guy) and Yarvin demonstrates what we’re up against. It’s fundamentally unserious, magical thinking about a technocrat/monarch saving us all, but attached to deadly serious discussion of what needs to be destroyed and suppressed. We’re so fucking deep in the weeds and the right just keeps being more explicit that they want fascism.

I ordered a mac and cheese side along with the pulled pork sandwich I got at a BBQ place near where I am staying outside of Pittsburgh. It was pretty darn good. Nice consistency and a slight spicy kick to it as well. Went down well with a beer on a day in the 80s after a 5-hour drive across the state.

California secretary of state candidate claims to have ‘empath’ powers proving Trump won

HAMM: “Well, I think an audit is the key. That’s why I put a press release out today calling for an official audit to be done in California. I drove up and down the state of California during COVID. My husband was off of work and we had the time to do it, and so we went and saw the state, and guess what I saw, everywhere? Besides the homeless and littering because of liberal policies that have driven the state into the ground. I saw Trump signs. Trump signs even in liberal areas. Trump signs everywhere. And I’m kind of like an empath type, where I kind of feel the vibe of places, if you will, and guess what I felt? I felt an intense energy and force that was going towards Trump from California, and I kept feeling like something has turned, right? There was a poll that was done several years ago and they said that 65% of Californians considered themselves to be moderate-left leaning. That same poll was done eight weeks ago—68% of Californians said they consider themselves moderate-right leaning. There’s been a shift in the state of California, and I want to get to the bottom of what happened in the election, because I believe California is Trump country.”

This is incredibly dangerous. Millions of MAGAt waterheads are completely delusional.

53,342 deaths in Texas, and yet, per Greg Abbott:

On Thursday, North East (San Antonio) ISD Superintendent Sean Maika emailed parents about a “safety plan” that really spoke to the constraints on districts, and, in turn, underscored the stress confronting many parents. Here’s how it ends (italics added):
“As we enter the 2021-2022 school year, remember that a mask mandate is prohibited, COVID-19 vaccines are not required, virtual learning will not be offered, and the state will no longer allow school districts to require quarantines for possible COVID-19 exposure. This school year, public schools will treat COVID-19 exposure similar to the flu or strep throat and will not send home COVID-19 letters. As you can see, self-screening your children for symptoms and keeping them home when they are ill is especially important.”

Of course, COVID-19 is neither the flu, nor strep throat.

It’s like he’s trying to kill us.

Covid up date:

My nephew, Jamie, died from Covid-19 this afternoon. It was not an easy death. Just two weeks ago he was a very healthy 46 year old husband and dad. In those two weeks, he went into the ER and was immediately placed into the ICU. He went downhill very fast. First he was intubated followed by being being placed into an induced coma. He struggled so much they had to introduce paralysis to prevent him from tearing out the O2 tube. He survived like this for about a week.

His only chance was to have a lung transplant, which are not available in Alaska. The Doctors believed he would not survive a medical flight to Seattle even if there were a set of lungs available.

The hospital allowed his family to don full PPE and be at his bedside for his last few hours.

Just two weeks from being a healthy human being to dying a horrible death not being able to breath.

FUCK THOSE ANTI-VAXERS!!!!

Josh Marshall:

So we can see larger problem. Masking is coming back largely because of the actions of the unvaccinated and also largely for the benefit of the unvaccinated. The burden of non-vaccination is being placed on those who are vaccinated. That basic disconnect is our problem.

That disconnect places no effective pressure on the voluntarily unvaccinated while sowing demoralization and frustration and contempt with public authorities among those who’ve gotten the vaccine. No good comes of that combination.

We just got back from town a little while ago.

Yesterday the state governor put out a proclamation which looked like a Republican talking points memo on how we would not be cowed by big government such as the CDC. (That would be the same governor who ordered the AG to sue to take away your right to vote if you live in places like Pennsylvania or Michigan.)

With that out there in the news this morning, a whole bunch of businesses put up “masks prohibited” signs. At the bank, there was a sign “recommending” no masks.

All day my wife and I were the only persons in masks, except at the hospital.

My county with its very low vax rate has shuttered the vaccination centre. You can not get a vaccine in my county.

Is it just your county that has shut off access to vaccinations? Is the rest of the state still providing this service to the residents? Most states, even very red ones, still seem to be providing ready access to inoculations.

Good grief.

Steve Black, a 72-year-old from Spokane, was directing cars to the parking lot from the back of a utility vehicle. Saturday’s event was the first time he had been out of the house for about a year after COVID-19 left him with some challenging health issues, he said. He surmised COVID-19 was a “political thing, and I wouldn’t be surprised if they sprayed it out of the air.”

Asked to clarify, he said “chem trails,” a debunked suggestion that condensation trails from aircraft is actually a government ploy to crop-dust citizens with some nefarious substance.

“I’m a conspiracy theorist,” he said. “The way it spread, you know, that’d be the perfect way to do it.”

Last Friday Lawrence O’Donnell, a former Senate staffer and currently host for the MSNBC Last Word went through the strategy behind what Biden, Schumer and Pelosi were trying to do regarding the Infrastructure bills.

My own thoughts are that Biden, having served in the Senate, for what, 30 years, is quite familiar with what does and doesn’t work in there. I do believe that the leadership has a plan and understands what they want to happen. Can it fail? Possibly… But every senator there wants stuff that it is in it. And for the Dems, there is the added opportunity to split the Repubs.

re: #45 Dread Pirate Ron

That small study out of Israel doesn’t say what is being implied.

Covid-19 Breakthrough Infections in Vaccinated Health Care Workers (New England Journal of Medicine, July 28, 2021)

Noting a couple things here:

Among 1497 fully vaccinated health care workers for whom RT-PCR data were available, 39 SARS-CoV-2 breakthrough infections were documented.

2.6% were detected having any disease at all post-vaccination.

They note this is the alpha variant of the virus being tested here.

Most breakthrough cases were mild or asymptomatic, although 19% had persistent symptoms (>6 weeks).

“Most” is a weasel-word, particularly bad in a scientific study. What is 19% of “most?” So of the 39 breakthroughs (and those are expected with any vaccine for any number of reasons), some part greater than 50% of the 39 had mild or asymptomatic disease. So less than 19 had symptoms beyond six weeks.

Conclusions

Among fully vaccinated health care workers, the occurrence of breakthrough infections with SARS-CoV-2 was correlated with neutralizing antibody titers during the peri-infection period. Most breakthrough infections were mild or asymptomatic, although persistent symptoms did occur.

We found some cases of persistence beyond six weeks, but no particular numbers.

From the results section:

Breakthrough Infections

Among 11,453 fully vaccinated health care workers, 1497 (13.1%) underwent RT-PCR testing during the study period. Of the tested workers, 39 breakthrough cases were detected. More than 38 persons were tested for every positive case that was detected, for a test positivity of 2.6%. Thus, this percentage was much lower than the test positivity rate in Israel at the time, since the ratio between positive results and the extensive number of tests that were administered in our study was much smaller than that in the national population.

A little cockapoo relied on a big heart, wily wits and maybe a little luck to survive four weeks in the Maroon Bells-Snowmass Wilderness.

Bella disappeared June 18 while hiking the Capitol Creek Ditch Trail with Betsy and Jim Chaffin and their extended family, including two other dogs. Bella had gone ahead of the human pack with the Chaffins’ grandson and other dogs when she turned around. Somehow, she got off course and, willingly or not, went on an epic journey.

She was reunited with the Chaffins four weeks to the day she went missing. Bella was found by a worker on a ranch not far from the Capitol Creek Trailhead, which is southwest of Old Snowmass.

“It’s a bit of a miracle,” Betsy said.

The 10-month-old dog lost half of her weight — from 8 to 4 pounds — was impaled with two porcupine quills, had matted hair, was understandably skittish and, of course, was dog tired. She’s recovering nicely at the Chaffins’ home and is once again as friendly as ever.

[…]

The Chaffins can only wonder what their dog experienced.

“How does any dog survive in the White River National Forest for a month, much less an 8-pound, 10-month-old little cockapoo?” the Chaffins wrote in an email letting people know Bella was found. “There was plenty of water between the creek and the rains. Was she eating grasses, cow pies, an occasional varmint? This is a drainage populated by coyotes, fox, mountain lion and bear — how did she manage to hide? What stories Bella could tell but will never be told.”

The whole “woe is me” shtick only ever comes after she has yelled and screamed at anybody within vocal range about how “wrong” it is that she’s facing consequences for her actions when “those people” walk free. And then tried to use her child as a shield, begging and pleading not to be charged because she’d lose her job and insurance and how will she take care of her poor child? Since neither of those tactics worked, now she’s blubbering to anybody who will listen about how much of a “victim” she is because she “did nothing wrong!”

re: #101 Hecuba’s daughter

Is it just your county that has shut off access to vaccinations? Is the rest of the state still providing this service to the residents? Most states, even very red ones, still seem to be providing ready access to inoculations.

I think it’s just my county.

I presume you can still get a vaccine at the county hospital. The only pharmacy doesn’t carry them because the county was doing it.

There are three counties in the Panhandle with no hospitals, pharmacies, or clinics at all.

My understanding is you can get them at CVS or Walgreens (those are in Scottsbluff, Sidney, Alliance, and Chadron).

re: #100 No Malarkey!

The Right has gone insane.

They have indeed. They are still as dangerous as rattlesnakes or rabid dogs but there is every indication that the process of self-eradication is irreversible. The rank and file is completely indoctrinated now in conspiracist thinking. This is an infallible system in the sense that any and all objections or inconsistencies can be dealt with simply by enlarging the postulated conspiracy.
Last year, democide advocates like Texas Lt. Governor Patrick and disgraced former Lubbock councilman Todd Klein were insisting that “the elderly, the obese, and smokers” should be sacrificed to covid because saving them would harm the “economic future of young people.”
Now, though, it is covid delta that they have set up to destroy the economic future of young people. Relatively few of the young, perhaps several tens of thousands at the outside, will actually die, but millions could suffer severely debilitating permanent effects, up to and including severe cognitive problems. Thousands of budding athletic careers will be snuffed out. There are still good jobs for the future disabled, thanks to laws these self-same Republicans fought against tooth and nail, but many doors are closed nevertheless. Want to be a firefighter or police officer or commercial pilot? Sorry, permanently disqualified, and military service is out of the question.
Beyond that, many young people will lose their futures when ruinous health care costs eat up their college funds and destroy their inheritances.
Many will rationalize this and refuse to blame the guilty, but many, many others will realize the truth. The backlash may be epic. Since the GOP has indoctrinated the very same people to see violence as a solution, it may also be very violent.

re: #149 Shiplord Kirel: Fan of USPS, Goodyear, and Oreo

Small quibble: When asshats like Patrick and Klein talked about the “economic future of young people,” what they were really talking about was the service and hotel industries being forced to close due to the sudden panic that gripped the nation in the wake of the reality that CV was running wild among the civilian population. Hence why the same sort of dickless wonders have gone on to blame the “labor crisis” on expanded UE benefits which were created to help those same “young people” survive and putting the kibosh on them at the state level with the promise that doing so will force those “young people” to reenter the labor market.

I wonder if GOP leaders and their depraved media shills will suddenly start demanding a ban on semi-auto rifles and an immediate door to door confiscation campaign once they realize their marks have turned against them?
It will be as though millions of AR-15s suddenly cried out in anguish, “I’m broke, my kid can barely breathe or read, and you lying assholes caused it!”

Inappropriate movies? When I was in 8th grade our youth minister took the youth club to an inner-city church in Chicago for a weekend. I think the purpose was to help out with the kitchen providing meals to homeless folks. He promised to take us to see a movie, but it turned out that the only theater nearby showed second-run films and the film at the time (1973) was Robert Altman’s M*A*S*H. Most of us had seen the TV show, so the difference between the movie and sit-com came as something of a shock to our hapless minister (and some of the kids). I thought it was great.

We’re so fucking deep in the weeds and the right just keeps being more explicit that they want fascism.

If I recall correctly, Germany has very restrictive abortion laws.

They were until the 90’s. But after reunification, they loosened up a lot. Now a woman simply has to obtain a certificate indicating that she has undergone counseling on her options.

Before that, she had to get a note from a doctor or a social worker indicating that she was not mentally/physically/socio-economically fit to bear and raise a child. In other words, the final decision was not hers.

re: #103 ckkatz

Let me add a few names to the previous thread on place names:

The strangest place name in Nebraska is in my county, Moomaw Corner (goes to Wikipedia with an incredibly detailed description), a small unincorporated community of maybe a dozen people, but there was a town there in the early XX Century. In the past it had a one-room school (still standing but unsafe to enter), a church (not there now), a post office (also gone), and a few stores (also gone).

It is many miles west of the old Sidney-Deadwood Trail stageline (now US-385), and never had a railroad or a river. All-in-all not a good place for a town. (In the Panhandle we have a lot of “not a good place for a town” towns, most of them now ghost towns.)

Moomaw Corner is three miles north of Bayard, at the intersection of US-26 and state highway Link 62A. Mapquest generously refers to it as a city.

I like Last Chance, Colo. (Wikipedia, gas stationed pictured looking north toward Kimball, Nebr.) on US-36 and CO-71 (population 23). It is way the hell out in the middle of nowhere and is now a ghost town, but the most direct route from here to Colorado Springs if you want to avoid the toll road around Denver. Lots of lonely high plains.

At one time it had a gas station and motel (now abandoned). There is a public outhouse just south of the town on CO-71. It is famous for being evacuated for a prairie fire, and for being saluted on “Hee Haw.”

Dipshit pastor Mike Hibbs of Chino Hills, California, infamous for hosting a thousand-person baptism to protest California’s lockdown orders, and saying trans people don’t exist (it’s demons who convince people they do) is back in the news.

This time he hosted Mike Pompeo on Sunday. When he closed the service with a prayer, he asked God to forgive California for electing people with “Antichrist views.” In his prayer, he specifically referenced House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Vice-President Kamala Harris.

I wish the Johnson Amendment had teeth, so they could put his church out of business.

Pompeo of course did not challenge that claim.

Aside from the Bible’s requirement to obey those God has appointed over you, Christians (especially but not exclusively right-wing ones) love tearing down other Christians. (Left-wing Christians usually dismiss them as “no True Christians.”)

Their own party (since almost everyone younger than forty now views Christianity and Republican as the same thing) candidate for the US Senate, Abraham Lincoln said, “A house divided against itself, cannot stand.”

The only question is how violent Christians will become as they tear themselves apart. They do have a history of that.

Your tax dollars at work in Michigan (Grand Rapids), expending funds by the police to have clergy ride along in police cars to calls. The Grand Rapids Police Department seems to think having clergy members along will be useful in responding to crime.

Multiple concerned Grand Rapids area residents have reported that the Grand Rapids Police Department is launching a new faith based partnership called “Clergy on Patrol.” It is our understanding that the purpose of this program is to “foster relationships between the police and faith based leaders.” We understand this program utilizes GRPD resources, time, and funds to train clergy members who will then be riding along with police officers on a regular basis. We understand that this religious program has been promoted and endorsed on GRPD’s official Facebook page.

The Grand Rapids Police Department must immediately end this unconstitutional religious program that utilizes public funds and resources in order to promote religion and allow clergy members to proselytize and promote their religious beliefs as an official part of the GRPD

(part of a letter from the Freedom from Religion Foundation, the whole letter is at Dropbox)

Before FFRF even sent the letter, GRPD got a metric fuquetonne of complaints about the proposal to give clergy police powers at tax expense, updating their Facebook post multiple times, for example, explaining clergy would not be armed.

“Not armed” means guns. They will be trained in the use of Tasers. Wait for your local clergymember to Tase you for something. That ought to be worth a few million dollars in civil rights claims against Grand Rapids.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Ron Popeil, the quintessential TV pitchman and inventor known to generations of viewers for hawking products including the Veg-O-Matic, the Pocket Fisherman, Mr. Microphone and the Showtime Rotisserie and BBQ, has died, his family said.

Popeil died “suddenly and peacefully” Wednesday at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, his family said in a statement. He was 86. No cause of death was given.

Popeil essentially invented the popular image of the American television pitchman, whose novel products solved frustrating problems viewers didn’t know they had. He popularized much of the vernacular of late-night TV ads and infomercials, with lines like “Now how much would you pay?” and “Set it and forget it.”

Popeil, whose father was also an inventor-salesman, built his ability to sell things as a young man in the open-air markets of Chicago, where he moved as a teen in the 1940s after spending his earliest years in New York and Miami.

I like Last Chance, Colo. (Wikipedia, gas stationed pictured looking north toward Kimball, Nebr.) on US-36 and CO-71 (population 23). It is way the hell out in the middle of nowhere and is now a ghost town, but the most direct route from here to Colorado Springs if you want to avoid the toll road around Denver. Lots of lonely high plains.

At one time it had a gas station and motel (now abandoned). There is a public outhouse just south of the town on CO-71. It is famous for being evacuated for a prairie fire, and for being saluted on “Hee Haw.”

Mississippi has yet to crack 40% vaccination rate. Just about 1/3 of the population has been fully vaccinated. It’s the same story all across the South.

These state and local governments are responsible for the sharply rising numbers of cases, hospitalizations, and deaths. It was avoidable.

The GOP chose not to avoid it, but to steer directly into the pandemic and act like nothing is wrong.

What’s particularly dangerous is that the heat domes aren’t just the continental US, but Alaska has its own heat dome to contend with. That’ll melt permafrost, shrink glaciers, and likely harms even the petrochemical industry there because shorter winter seasons and warmer temps means getting gear to-from wellsites and Arctic Circle communities just gets even more difficult (think ice road truckers, without the ice… or the roads).

re: #231 Belafon

Who are the unvaccinated (no particular order):

1) those who can’t get vaccinated - age under 12.
2) those who can’t get vaccinated - immunocompromised.

Those two categories require vaccinations by everyone else to be safe - they’re the ones who benefit from herd immunity most. Masking and vaccinations protect them.

The following are those who are still unvaccinated:
3) those who refuse to vax because they want to pwn the libs.
4) those who have been unable to access vaccinations due to lack of availability/means/etc.
5) those who are antivax or have bought into antivax sentiment.
6) communities of color who are reluctant to vaccinate due to historic discrimination and racism in medical practices, including using POC as guinea pigs for medical tests against their knowledge or consent.

Within this group (3-6), (4) and (4) are the groups that we need to help most. GOPers have done their utmost to undermine vaccination efforts, and more needs to be done to get vaccinations to those who want it. We need still more outreach to communities of color to get them vaccinated and make them understand that this vaccine has been heavily tested and the real world results show that it is safe and effective. It’s far safer to get vaccinated than not. It’s far safer to even get a breakthrough infection with the vaccine than not. Without the vaccine, covid19 can kill. It’s far less likely to do so, let alone require hospitalizations.

Vaccine hesitant groups are those who have bought into a lot of the antivax sentiment, including the “just asking questions” bulkshit about vaccine safety. There’s a bunch of evidence showing the vaccines are safe and effective. They’re an excellent way to avoid death, hospitalization, and the economic harms coming from the death or hospitalization. It can also reduce the spread of covid19 within communities.
Hardcore anti-covid19 vaccine types, like those who want to pwn the libs by dying aren’t only harming themselves, but they’re prolonging the pandemic and threatening everyone else because the more a disease is spread, the more likely new variants emerge and one of them might become more virulent, easy to spread, or do more damage to the body.

Businesses are starting to take it on themselves to require vaccinations among their employees, and masks for their customers. It’s good business sense - you want to keep your employees safe and your customers safe, and the best way to do so is with masks and vaccines.

Masks are the cheapest solution to the pandemic, and yet GOPers are still refusing to do so. It’s the one thing that separates them from the KKK. The KKK were at least willing to mask up.

re: #233 Belafon

It could be a little of both. The Black community hasn’t forgotten those experiments, but there is also a LOT of awful information and conspiracies out there, especially in the South. Georgia is inching towards a 50 percent vaccination rate, but we aren’t there yet. Sadly we also have right wing clergy who have an undue influence as well, even in black churches. There is no excuse for not getting vaccinated here. We had two months of huge mass vaccine sites open to the public this past spring. At the end of April, as those sites began closing down, pharmacies, both major chains and locally owned, began offering the shots. Pharmacies in grocery stores and department stores also had them by the beginning of May. Unless you are very stuck in an isolated area here you can get a shot damned near anywhere you get groceries or basic household needs.

Also forbidding schools to require vaccinations has contributed to a sense of everything is ok, why would they let kids go back to school if it wasn’t? We’re in a mess here and it’s going to get worse before/if it gets better.

Many of the responses to the original tweet were claiming that the problem was that many people could not afford to take time off work if they suffered the more serious side effects of the shot. That would hold water if the stories about the vaccine resistant made that claim. But it certainly appears that the overwhelming number 1 reason people are avoiding vaccination was loyalty to Trump or pulpit pimps or RW media.

Former President Trump lashed out at Senate Republicans after the upper chamber voted to take up debate on a bipartisan infrastructure package, accusing Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and “RINOs” for surrendering to Democrats, The Hill reports.

Said Trump: “Under the weak leadership of Mitch McConnell, Senate Republicans continue to lose. He lost Arizona, he lost Georgia, he ignored Election Fraud and he doesn’t fight.”

He added: “Now he’s giving Democrats everything they want and getting nothing in return. No deal is better than a bad deal. Fight for America, not for special interests and Radical Democrats. RINOs are ruining America, right alongside Communist Democrats.”

67 senators voted to move forward.

Tuskegee was conducted from 1932 to 1972. There are people alive today who grew up knowing first hand victims of this experiment, or whose parents knew these victims. This is not ancient history, especially in the South where racists continue to celebrate the Lost Cause which happened 100 years earlier than Tuskegee. Most Americans are ignorant or uninterested in knowing our history — but when your people have been victimized and are continuing to be victimized by the powerful, it is a lesson you don’t forget. On health metrics, African-Americans are still suffering because they don’t have the resources to get the proper medical care. The past is closer than you think.

Like…do people understand the whole push for organization isn’t being pushed in lieu of legislative change, it’s literally the only option we have because of those roadblocks, and was ideally on the board in concurrence with legislative change. The fact that we can’t get past the legislative roadblock means that’s literally all we can do, because our options are full on stymied, and the responsible parties are digging in their heels rather than looking amenable to negotiation.

But no, we must believe that because Manchin and Sinema are ‘allowed’ to do this, nearly all the Dems secretly don’t want this and just want Republicans to run roughshod over them because…I don’t fucking know, some masochistic love of being in the minority or some shit, I fucking give up trying to understand this shit anymore.

Josh Marshall:

So we can see larger problem. Masking is coming back largely because of the actions of the unvaccinated and also largely for the benefit of the unvaccinated. The burden of non-vaccination is being placed on those who are vaccinated. That basic disconnect is our problem.

That disconnect places no effective pressure on the voluntarily unvaccinated while sowing demoralization and frustration and contempt with public authorities among those who’ve gotten the vaccine. No good comes of that combination.

My take re COVID Delta:

Looks like the consensus among epidemiologists re COVID Delta is you can be
vaccinated, get infected, remain asymptomatic, and infect others, whether they are
vaccinated or not.

Their infection response is a crap shoot, with ~80% or better odds of remaining asymptomatic or slight illness if they themselves have been vaccinated.

They in turn…

I like to think of being vaccinated and wearing a mask for the time being, as riding
in a vehicle equipped with air bags and fastening your seat belt.

So when they tell you “jet fuel can’t melt steel beams,” ask them how they could possibly know that, because who the hell knows what temperature the stuff burns at they put in the chemtrail sprayers.

Had a conspiracy theorist tell me in 1996 that TWA Flight 800 could have not possibly exploded from jet fuel fumes and short circuit in its mid-aircraft fuel tank, “because jet fuel is basically kerosene, and kerosene cannot cause explosions.”

You raise an interesting question.

I was also thinking about that when I saw the article. Which noted that billionaires were buying up escape hide-aways in New Zealand.

My conclusion was that isolation has its disadvantages and that a major strength strength of humans is in their community and aggregate rather than in the isolated individual.

I keep thinking back to Easter Island. As I understand it, the humans on the island eventually outgrew the resources of the island. They ended up deforesting the island and essentially marooning themselves in a declining situation there. Until outsiders invaded.

Definitely an interesting philosophical question.

Tuskegee was conducted from 1932 to 1972. There are people alive today who grew up knowing first hand victims of this experiment, or whose parents knew these victims. This is not ancient history, especially in the South where racists continue to celebrate the Lost Cause which happened 100 years earlier than Tuskegee. Most Americans are ignorant or uninterested in knowing our history — but when your people have been victimized and are continuing to be victimized by the powerful, it is a lesson you don’t forget. On health metrics, African-Americans are still suffering because they don’t have the resources to get the proper medical care. The past is closer than you think.

But the Tuskegee experiment involved assembling a group of people and not treating them, while anti-vaxxers are volunteering to be Tuskegee-like subjects.

I suspect “Tuskegee” is shorthand for “minorities in general, and blacks in particular often are treated poorly by the medical establishment even when they have access to the system.”
However, considering how the privileged white folks around here scrambled to get the vaccine, adult children driving their parents for 2 or 3 hours to where the vaccines were available and so forth, I think the idea that the doctors want to experiment on the minorities with the vaccine is a bit of a stretch.

re: #277 ckkatz

Sounds like you live in the Fredricksburg, Virginia area.

I have always found that area fascinating.

As a resident, you know the below. But for other of our esteemed lizards…

For much of the American Civil War, it was the equidistant power point between Washington DC and Richmond, Va. And it was George Washington’s childhood rambling grounds. So there are a lot of historic sites.

For the past 30 years it has been rapidly suburbanizing and a lot has changed there.

Plus, there is a lot of nice touristy stuff in the area. Although the store that caused the most amusement the last time I drove through was the “Sorry Mom Tattoo Shop”.

ETA - Typos… We got lots of typos!

I read (most of) Chernow’s bio of Washington this summer (until I left the book at my parents’ home half the country away). I didn’t know anything about GW’s mother and learned that he basically put her up in Fredricksburg from whence she regularly complained of his financial negligence in barely literate letters to Mount Vernon. Kind of funny to think that there is a university named after her. That’s all I know. We stopped there once when we lived outside of Richmond, but we just went to the battlefield, as I recall.

Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-GA) has apparently found a way to evade the House’s mask fines, CNN reports.

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), who is suing Speaker Nancy Pelosi over the chamber’s mask penalties, said Clyde changed his tax withholding in a way that makes it nearly impossible for the House to collect the thousands of dollars in fines Clyde has racked up for refusing to mask up on the House floor.

Normally fines are taken out of a member’s congressional salary, but Clyde “went to payroll and had his federal withholding raised to $11,284 a month. So he only gets $1 of pay.”

Richmond must have been an interesting place. There is certainly a lot of history there as well.

As an aside, I seem to remember reading an article that mentioned that due to global warming, alligators are slowly making their way up the James River basin. Previously, it was assumed that the North Carolina-Virginia border was the northernmost boundary for them.

Like all American citizens, I am a beneficiary of what George Washington and his generation did to create the United States and the sacrifices they made.

Thanks for reminding me, I do need to read Chernow’s book!

I had not heard about his exiling of his mother to the Fredricksburg region rather than bringing up to Mt Vernon. However, among his many talents, George Washington was a highly skilled social climber. In the process of ingratiating himself to the leadership of Virginia, among other things, he started a World War. I tend to look at his behavior in that light.

They’re more likely to fear (especially early on, when the vax sites were inconveniently located and it was hard to get appointments) that racist truck drivers, warehouse workers, etc were paid to steal the vax to use on white people and replacing it with distilled water for batches meant to go to minority neighborhoods.

The latest occurrence, which was first reported by ABC7, happened at around 6:15 PM this evening in its most usual spot, right off the final approach to LAX. The ATC audio was quite lively following the spotting, although it is bizarre how much more familiar the situation seemed than it did a year ago. The exchanges include asking if the pilots saw “the UFO” and what appears to be a new trend of referring to LA’s mystery Jetpack Man as “Iron Man.” You can also tell the pilot who called it in, a 747 pilot, knew he had to, but really didn’t seem too excited about the circus that would go with it.

They see this thing at 5000 feet? Nobody ever gets close? There are no jetpaks that can get that high from the ground and back. Even so it’s a huge mess in the LAX pattern.

You there for everyone in the jail or just some?

Ex-cardinal Theodore McCarrick criminally charged with sexual assault of teenager

Former cardinal Theodore McCarrick was criminally charged Wednesday with allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old boy during a wedding reception at Wellesley College in Massachusetts in 1974, according to the Boston Globe. The charges make McCarrick, who is a former archbishop of Washington, D.C., the highest-ranking Catholic official in the country to face criminal charges for sex abuse.

I think it’s real but I don’t think it’s a person in a jetpack. Possibly some kind of sophisticated vertical lift drone.

Freepers are on it. Sort of.

Why is thread getting so few responses? Americans should be up in arms about this.

I think even the Geneva Convention means that these people have to be able to get visits from their country’s representatives. Even in their own country, I would assume…

So apparently this guy thinks this was, in fact, an armed conflict rather than a riot, or an ordinary tour group?

Racist, misogynistic bigot Ted Nugent has resigned from the @NRA’s Board - allegedly because he accepted a position as the national spokesman for Hunter Nation, and his contract requires exclusivity.

Ted has never been big on reading the fine print, like the Constitution…

Texas chainsaw massacre, when it was “banned” in the UK, in an independent cinema. 30 mile ride back from the cinema down dark Cornish single lane roads after nightfall in a VW microbus.

Didn’t sleep for two days.

I had the improved “H” model, which also had “Run Through the Jungle,” “Bad Moon Rising,” and “Who’ll Stop the Rain?”

not “paint it black”?

My, small, company doesn’t have a policy that employees should be vaccinated.

Because, frankly, we never imagined that the wouldn’t want to get vaccinated.

(Ps: the last non fully vaccinated person got their second shot yesterday).
