re: #190 Jay C

Just from a quick Wiki search, Clay does seem like a very likely D candidate for TX, except that he doesn’t seem to have much of a record in office. How much is that likely to count?

FWIW, I will also confess to being less-than-over-impressed by Beto O’Rourke: but of course, if I lived in TX, I’d vote for him over ANY Republican…..

You’d have to live here to understand. Follow him on Twitter, You’ll see. He has substance, Beto has words

I’ve played as a hobbyist for a few years, but I’m not sure how to talk about the tones around the tone. Is it harmonics or overtones? Anyway, this guy creates that special aura around the main tone in amazing ways.

Four people, including an infant, were killed in a shooting at a home in Florida early Sunday morning, while an 11-year-old who was shot at least seven times was rushed to the hospital.

The sheriff’s office has identified the suspect as 33-year-old Bryan Riley, a former Marine sharpshooter recently employed as a security guard. He surrendered and was hospitalized for injuries.

According to Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd, authorities were originally called to a home in Lakeland, Fla., on Saturday evening at 7:23 p.m. after a woman said a strange man pulled up to her in his car and told her God instructed him to speak to one of her daughters.

A man was found dead late Saturday at a downtown Dallas hotel after he accidentally shot himself while he was cleaning a gun, a witness told police.

Dallas officers who responded to the shooting about 11:30 p.m. at the Omni Dallas Hotel in the 500 block of South Lamar Street, near Interstate 35E, found the man with a gunshot wound to his upper torso.

The man has not been publicly identified, and police did not release any other details about the incident.

Two tickets for basically the same offense: going 17 miles per hour above the speed limit (limit was 25 on one street, 35 on the other), both instances were within 4 miles of my home. And I no longer travel at such excessive speeds on local roads.

when I was a Californian, I got so many speeding tickets my license was suspended for six months. Just call me lead foot.

Since I’ve been a New Yorker… NOT A SINGLE SPEEDING TICKET!! Obviously my road decorum has improved immeasurably.

re: #16 Dave In Austin

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.

This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants, each serving a town of 60,000 population. It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals. It is some fifty miles of concrete pavement. We pay for a single fighter plane with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people.

This is, I repeat, the best way of life to be found on the road the world has been taking. This is not a way of life at all, in any true sense. Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron. These plain and cruel truths define the peril and point the hope that come with this spring of 1953.

I’ve been pulled over twice but fined only once. A $50 fine for doing 85 in a 35 mph zone at 4 am many decades ago (highway going thru a small town in ND). The other time I was doing 10 or 15 over the posted limit just north of the OK-TX border. I apologized to the trooper when he approached saying something like “I’m sorry. I just was too excited about getting the hell out of Texas.” Trooper smiled, took off his sunglasses and said “son, you’re no longer in Texas” and let me off with a warning.

I had mentioned before that the nephew of a friend had died of covid. Now the grandmother of a girl who had been in my daughter’s girl scout troop has died of covid. Both probably unvaccinated. My mother tested positive for covid two weeks ago, but she was vaccinated in December, and has remained asymptomatic.

The bottom of the reflective subway car turns the cone into an elephant butt plug.

It’s pain or pleasure for the elephant kink community. We shouldn’t judge. Every species has their kinks and we should respect that.

What we shouldn’t do is demand that this should be a human option, because that butt plug would flat kill you as soon as it ruptured the south half of your body into a bloody cascade.

The nuclear missile sub base (Boomers) for the Royal Navy is in Faslane. If you take the train from Glasgow to Fort William/Malaig for the ferry to Skye, you’ll go right by Faslane.

The English aren’t going to buy Faslane. Because it’s not the port that they have invested several billion pounds in developing.

The facility that stores the warheads for the Boomers stationed in Faslane is north by northeast of the port, served by numerous shuttle trains that move live warheads from the concrete bunkers where they are stored to be switched out with warheads that need to be upgraded in the existing warhead MIRVs. It’s about twelve miles from Faslane.

By the way, if you continue to Mallaig from Fort William, which you will not do if you are going to Inverness, your train will traverse the Harry Potter Hogwarts Express viaduct.

The viaduct looks like this:

Took a scooter ride to get some fresh air today and decided to stop at a popcorn shop for a big bag of Chicago mix. The store was small and the store was crowded. Lots of kids. Besides the employees, i was the only one in the store wearing a mask. I was in there for about 12 minutes, and I’m feeling like it was my stupidest move so far in 2021. How long ‘til I start feeling how stupid I was?

Been reading up on the conservatorship battles by Walt Disney’s grandchildren, specifically the twin children of Walt’s daughter Sharon.

What a mess.

Given a big pile of money, everybody wants a cut.

It seems to me their father William S. Lund is not liked by either child.

Then the other trustees seem to be raking in the money.

Then the lawyers that Michelle and Bradford (the twins) have hired over many years are raking in dough.

I have not doubt at all that our society is chin-deep in trusts and therein lay the root of the problem.

We’ve somehow built a society in which legal entities are eternal and self-serving.

And, I propose, the wealth managed by trusts whose original donors are long dead is a source of keeping wealth in the hands of a few people in this country.

People are pretty good around here too but I was in what tends to be a tourist town on the weekend and no one was masked although I’d guess the vaccination rate is higher than typical. I should have stayed on the scooter and out of the store but I really wanted the fucking popcorn.

BigPapa  Sep 5, 2021 • 10:55:38pm

Since we’re talking about fish, I got a tip I never knew and it changed my life. When frying fish, use a low frying heat like medium or just under. Since fish wants to stick even with butter, but it releases once it’s done caramelizing on that side. If you cook low enough it will caramelize, then release, then you flip, repeat, and the fish doesn’t dry out. Basically I learned you never try and flip the fish by scraping up with a spatula because it breaks up. You wait until a little shake of the pan slides it around: it’s ready.

This theory was tested with halibut the other night and it proved true. Especially because it was butter and Meyer lemon.

One for running a yellow light in La Grange at 3 am in 1976.

hi

I’ve only had one ticket, for careless driving in Orange Park, Florida, after I had a seizure, rear ended a pickup truck at a traffic light, and pushed it out into the intersection. Fortunately no one was hurt, but Florida took my driver’s license.

I got a written warning for speeding on US-30 just outside Pine Bluffs, Wyo, one mile inside Nebraska, for 70 in a 60.

I’ve never had a traffic ticket.

As an adult, I had one parking ticket. I was done. Couldn’t afford that shit.

When I was a college kid, I had an enormous station wagon that I only used in dire emergencies. (Hated driving that beast.) Unfortunately, Boulder had a BS can’t park your car in the same space on the street for more than 72 hours. Got a bunch of tix before I realized that shit. So, as the car was registered to my mom and dad, they got the notice.

Things went poorly. I learned parking tix were a stupid thing to get.

The ticket as an adult reminded me forever.

When I rebuilt my 72 Challenger I took it for a test drive and got pulled over by detectives for going 90 in a 35 MPH zone, I just maxed out 2nd gear. I got a few tickets in my youth. I think the last ticket ever was in 1991 in South Dakota. I came around a corner in the hills and the radar detector went off, sheriff passed the other way, I saw his brake lights so I just pulled over and waited for him.

From this morning’s Guardian email:

Britain’s labour crisis - The UK could be stuck for two years in its most severe labour crunch since the 1970s, the Confederation of British Industry (CBI) has warned. It wants foreign worker visas prioritised for lorry drivers, welders, butchers and bricklayers, but says minister are “waiting for shortages to solve themselves”. Pig farmers are warning they may have to kill and burn nearly 100,000 animals unless they can bring in more slaughterers. Britain needs about 100,000 more lorry drivers, says the haulage industry. The CBI says hotels are limiting bookings because they lack staff and laundry capacity, while understaffed restaurants are having to choose between serving lunch or dinner. The CBI says the government is right to want businesses to train and hire homegrown workers, but this takes time. The Resolution Foundation says the shortages are unlikely to be solved by the removal of furlough at the end of this month. The Guardian has approached the Home Office for comment.

Huh. Who did not see this coming?

Tonight’s cinematic masterpiece inflicted on me by my wife, a foreign film by legendary Japanese comedy director Hiroshi Matsumoto, “R100” (caution for violence, adult concepts, portrayals of sadomasochism).

The film first premiered at the 2013 Toronto film festival. It was reviewed by a number of mainstream outlets such as Variety and the Minneapolis Star-Tribune with favourable ratings. Positively rated at Rotten Tomatoes. Mostly in Japanese with English subtitles, some scenes in English with Japanese subtitles. Produced by Yoshimoto Kogyo Company and Warner Bros. Pictures.

The film takes the form of a “film within a film,” wherein a group of people are asked to review a legendary 100 year-old children’s film producer’s magnum opus, befuddled why he would produce such a film. Behind the privacy bar for spoiler.

re: #79 Dread Pirate Ron

The road to a Texas law that bans most abortions in the state, sidestepping for now the Supreme Court’s landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, began in a town called Waskom, population 1,600.

The Supreme Court’s decision this past week not to interfere with the state’s strict abortion law, provoked outrage from liberals and cheers from many conservatives. President Joe Biden assailed it. But the decision also astonished many that Texas could essentially outmaneuver Supreme Court precedent on women’s constitutional right to abortion.

Texas’ abortion law S.B. 8 follows a model first used in Waskom to ban abortion within its boundaries in 2019. The novel legal approach used by the city on Texas’ border with Louisiana is one envisioned by a former top lawyer for the state.

Teenagers, especially those in poverty or the foster-care system, are particularly vulnerable. Traffickers pose as trusted adults or befriend them on social media, then manipulate them to be sold for sexual abuse.

Under federal law, these children are victims, not criminals.

Yet every year, kids who have been sex trafficked are detained and charged with crimes.

At least 290 minors were arrested for a prostitution-related offense in 2019, the most recent year national data is available. Forty were 14 or younger.

The state that arrested the most kids — at least 110 — was Nevada.

Dear Robyn,

Sonic is airing a new commercial that is not only offensive - but this once family-friendly restaurant has made a deliberate decision to produce controversial advertisements instead of wholesome ones.

Oh no, what kind of unwholesome, controversial advertising is a fast-food chain doing? Is there nudity? Are they slipping porn into whatever their equivalent of a Happy Meal is? Or is it a violence thing. Like are they recreating scenes from Natural Born Killers to sell hamburgers?

The British Term of Endearment for the Continuous At-Sea Deterrent SSBN is “Bomber” not “Boomer”.

If Scotland becomes independent it’s likely the English bomber fleet will be redeployed to a Naval port on the south coast of England. The icky threat of radiation will seriously affect local property prices in solidly Conservative areas so Something Must Be Done, the government has decided.

The option of homing the British boats in a French port is not as outrageous as it first seems. Due to battleship inflation over the past few decades Royal Navy hunter/killer submarines have become larger but fewer. The CASD bomber on patrol gets a minder sub assigned to it to keep the Bad Guys from sneaking up on it with evil intent. This is the same for the Force de Frappe patrol SSBN which patrols in the same area as the RN boat, in the Atlantic in a deep-water box off the Bay of Biscay. The result, rumour has it, is that the second-strike boats of both nations are now covered by a single time-share hunter/killer boat from either the Royal Navy or the French Navy depending on the schedule. This cooperation means that hosting the British subs in France is not actually out of the question. Indeed the British boats spend a certain amount of time tied up in US ports every now and then getting their launch tubes loaded with fresh Trident missiles.

ObTV: there’s a BBC crime drama being shown at the moment, “Vigil” which is set on board a British bomber, a murder mystery. I don’t know how accurate technically the show really is but it’s interesting to note that the scenes shot in the missile compartment of the boat shows “Radiation: warning” stickers on each launch tube.

Denver Bible Church pastor Bob Enyart, a longtime Denver media personality who remains an active podcaster, made headlines last October when a lawsuit he filed prompted a U.S. District Court judge appointed by President Donald Trump to grant a temporary restraining order against the Colorado public-health order regarding COVID-19 and mask use at religious services, as well as rules limiting gatherings to 175 people amid the pandemic.

Now, however, Enyart and his wife, Cheryl, have both contracted COVID-19. Neither has been vaccinated, for what an August 2021 passage on Enyart’s website, kgov.com, describes as pro-life reasons. “Bob and Cheryl Enyart have sworn off taking the Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson vaccines because, as those firms admit, they tested these three products on the cells of aborted babies,” it says.

From the Rochester, NY Democrat & Chronicle, on the expiration date set by the New York “Child Victims Act” to bring forth charges against sexual abuse and rape against organisations and family members.

Child abuse survivors wait for justice, healing as CVA deadline passes with nearly 10K lawsuits filed

When legislators in New York passed the Child Victims Act in 2019, it was prompted by an understanding that survivors of sexual abuse were struggling to heal and needed help. Outdated laws kept them from finding justice through the courts, and the institutions which had fostered the abuse were slow to respond on their own.

What the legislators did not understand, perhaps, was how pervasive the sexual abuse of children had been across the state and the sheer number of individuals who had been victimized.

More than 9,200 complaints have been filed as part of the CVA process, with a surge of new claims arriving as the Aug. 14 deadline approached. The final number may approach 10,000 cases.

They include thousands of accusations of sexual abuse by Catholic clergy, more than a thousand against Boy Scout leaders, and still more against teachers, coaches, health care workers, and family members.

The volume of claims prompted four of the state’s eight Catholic Dioceses to file for bankruptcy protection, as did the Boy Scouts of America. Those proceedings will certainly impact the resolution of abuse claims, but they have also forced a deeper reckoning with those organizations’ failures to protect children and to support adult survivors who continue to struggle with the impact of the abuse they suffered.

Coach (not a coach) and pastor Dave Daubenmire has hooked up with Sherri Tenpenny to openly extort corporations to raise money for right-wing causes.

It is their goal to raise extort $100million in the first month.

Daubenmire: I’m Raising 100M for a New Group by Calling Companies Anti-Christ (The Friendly Atheist)

Right-wing Christian activist Dave Daubenmire, who recently said Dr. Anthony Fauci was an “emissary of the devil” whose mission it was to destroy Christians, just launched a new group called The Christian Revolution (with fellow conspiracy theorist Sherri Tenpenny) meant to back right-wing causes.

That in itself isn’t all that newsworthy. What’s bizarre is that Daubenmire wants to raise $100 million to fund his new group in the very first month… and he has a foolproof plan to get the money: He’s just going to accuse large companies of being anti-Christian, then demand they pay up in order to make amends.


Dave Daubenmire’s $100 Million Plan to Fund His Culture War


“This isn’t some fly-by-night, flimsy little thing we’re doing,” Daubenmire said. “This is big. And one of the directions we’re going to go as well is we’re gonna find out everybody that gave money to [Black Lives Matters]. Every major business donor that gave money to BLM, we’re going to go ask them about their office of diversity: ‘Aren’t Christians diverse? You’re giving money to BLM; are you giving any money to any Christian causes? Are you guys anti-Christ? Aren’t Christians part of the diversity plan and the diversity movement?’”


“We’re going to badger those folks into funding our war,” he added. “That’s our plan. We’re going to put this money in the hands of warriors. And I’m believing that 30 days from today, we’re going to have $100 million. The left will never know what hit him.” [sic]

Costco Introduces New 5-Gallon Family Size Pfizer Vaccine (August 30, 2021)

SEATTLE, WA—In a deal that probably has nothing to do with Pfizer’s COVID-19 vaccine showing disappointing long-term effectiveness, the pharmaceutical giant has announced an ambitious partnership with bulk wholesale giant Costco, and the unveiling of the new Pfizer-Kirkland Signature 5-Gallon Family Size Vaccine Booster Tub™.

Every Costco store is now stocked with sensibly-sized buckets of the vaccine, complete with instructions, kid-friendly self-stick syringes, and a 5-pack of IV kits for families who have been led to believe in overwhelming safety over all other aspects of life.

Kelly Earskin, while shopping for some chips and a jacuzzi, commented that the tubs were not hard to find due to the size of each bucket, and the fact that the pharmacy and vitamin shelves had been replaced with dozens of pallets of the stuff. “I had actually forgotten to pick up the vaccine, but the checkout worker ran back and grabbed it for me because Costco workers are so friendly and also because it’s required and you can’t leave the store without buying some.”

At press time, Donald Trump was seen on the street corner near Costco spinning a sign that advertised 5-gallon buckets of hydroxychloroquine.

The hunt for the Amber Room continues….

dailymail.co.uk

Long story short, last July, Polish divers found the wreck of the German ship S.S. Karlsruhe, which took part in Operation Hannibal, a maritime evacuation where over one million German troops and civilians from East Prussia escaped the advancing Red Army. The ship was attacked and sunk off the coast of Poland by Soviet aircraft after it sailed from Königsberg in 1945. The wreck of the Karlsruhe has a ton of crates with unknown contents, and Baltictech, the company which found the wreck, suspects those crates may well contain Nazi plunder - and possibly, the Amber Room itself (or what’s left of it, at least).

The Amber Room’s disappearance towards the end of WWII is one of the 20th century’s biggest mysteries.

Kewl. I had to look that up, as I’d never heard of that.

Wikipedia has photographs of the original Amber Room, along with a replica built in a collaboration between West Germany and the Soviet Union started in 1979 and only completed in 2003.

Many mysteries have surrounded the Amber Room, including speculation that the Soviet Party Secretary Khrushchev had the Königsberg Castle destroyed despite world outcry to hide that the Soviet Union had destroyed the Amber Room in the attack on Königsberg and its castle.

The Nebraska Sandhills Tropical Update.

The tropical wave which formed in the Gulf of Honduras has now moved off the Yucatan Peninsula into the Bay of Campeche. The National Hurricane Center calls for a 30% chance of development into a tropical cyclone as it moves towards the Florida coast of the Gulf of Mexico.

After it makes landfall, it is expected to cross Florida and reintensify over the Atlantic Ocean as it moves up the East Coast.

Five Day Tropical Graphical Outlook

As for Hurricane Larry:

…LARGE LARRY STILL A MAJOR HURRICANE…
…DANGEROUS SURF AND RIP CURRENTS EXPECTED ALONG WESTERN ATLANTIC
SHORES LATER THIS WEEK…

SUMMARY OF 500 AM AST…0900 UTC…INFORMATION
———————————————————————
LOCATION…21.5N 52.4W
ABOUT 730 MI…1175 KM ENE OF THE NORTHERN LEEWARD ISLANDS
ABOUT 1065 MI…1715 KM SE OF BERMUDA
MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS…120 MPH…195 KM/H
PRESENT MOVEMENT…NW OR 305 DEGREES AT 12 MPH…19 KM/H
MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE…956 MB…28.23 INCHES

Currently there are no watches or warnings in effect, other than marine warnings for the North Atlantic. Bermuda is currently outside the uncertainty cone, and Larry is expected to weaken as it approaches the island.

It is expected to still be a hurricane as it approaches Newfoundland, but it is still to early to tell if it will strike the province.

Hmm. With a major hurricane in the middle of the Atlantic anything can happen.

Its eyewall replacement cycle is complete, according to satellite imagery. It now has a 50 nautical mile eye. The question on whether it can intensify further now depends on if the hurricane’s eye shrinks in size (if it does, it will intensify further).

The hurricane is over very warm water with low shear.

By the end of the forecast period, both the National Hurricane Center and Environment Canada have it as a tropical cyclone (not an extra-tropical storm) near or over Newfoundland.

Regarding all the Republican politicians who are moving right up to the line on conveying threats regarding door-to-door vaccination drives, there is this in the morning Omaha World-Herald:

Door-to-door effort in South Omaha succeeds in boosting vaccinations (Flatwater Free-Press)

Diana Ignaceo answers her door on a sweltering August morning, not expecting to see firsthand why South Omaha has increased its vaccination rate more than almost anywhere else in Nebraska this summer.

Mary McConnaughey and Eddie Nuñez are standing on her front steps.
South Omaha knocking on door

Nuñez tells her in Spanish that they are from OneWorld, the nearby health center, and they are going door to door to talk to residents in her largely Hispanic 25th Street neighborhood about the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Have you been vaccinated?” he asks. She hasn’t.

Would you like to be? We have a vaccine for you right here, he says, pointing to a refrigerated bag on McConnaughey’s shoulder.

I think I want the vaccine, Ignaceo says. But my children say it’s more dangerous than the virus, she says, repeating a false claim.

OneWorld has made vaccination as easy and omnipresent as possible to the residents in three South Omaha ZIP codes. It has invested time, money, creativity and sweat equity to convince a sizable chunk of residents, many of them dubious and some downright hostile, to get vaccinated.

Anymouse 🌹🏡😷  Sep 6, 2021 • 6:49:23am

re: #151 Anymouse 🌹🏡😷

I live in an area of deliberate genocide by antivaxxers Republicans.

As the outreach employees talk to another person, and another, several truths become clear: Most of the people they encounter already know OneWorld. They have received care there. The community health center has built-in trust it can leverage to get people vaccinated.

Another truth: These outreach employees aren’t shy. They have been trained to speak plainly. They know how to listen and how to gently correct misinformation.

This type of successful outreach seems unthinkable in other parts of Nebraska, where a lack of resources makes the process more difficult.

The Panhandle Public Health District is a sprawling 11-county, 15,000-square-mile district in western Nebraska. One out of every 421 Panhandle residents has died of COVID during the pandemic, making the virus far deadlier in this region than it is nationally.

Yet just over a third of the Panhandle’s residents are fully vaccinated. It’s one of the least-vaccinated health districts in Nebraska.

“‘They will put a chip in your body.’ ‘Once you have a shot you become magnetized.’ Every story you can think of, I have heard it,” says Kim Engel, director of the Panhandle health district. The misinformation “is coming at people nonstop on social media, and it’s negative against vaccines, and that’s all they are hearing.”

154
Anymouse 🌹🏡😷  Sep 6, 2021 • 6:54:06am

On the idea that Blacks are resistant to the idea of vaccinations:

Part of the problem is staffing. Engel’s health district has only a half-dozen employees working full time on COVID-19, duties that include contact tracing, staffing a 24-hour hotline and distributing vaccines to area hospitals. Her district is huge — it’s a three-hour drive from one corner to the other.

This difference between the Panhandle and South Omaha also may be driven by demographics. National polling shows that many white, rural conservatives who remain unvaccinated are staunchly opposed to vaccination, while many unvaccinated Black and Hispanic Americans report they still are open to the idea.

Combat Inoculation Badge.

The methods they are using to convince the reluctant include methods that military recruiters use.

Since like their clinic, the military generally is viewed positively by most of the public, we should use military recruiters in a vaccine effort.

I could make a case for this being a national security issue.

I have never visited a prostitute. Not out of any moral issues I have with the practice. It is decriminalized here and the nearest establishment is all of 20 minutes from where I live.

Mostly because I am too cheap to pay upfront for sex, secondly because I am really not interested in having sex with someone who is only interested in financial gain and not in me as a person at all.

But most of all, because I know that the woman is not going to be the main person benefiting from the financial aspect; she will have to pay her pimp or the brothel owner or in some places, bribe the police.

Even here where it is decriminalized, it is not legal in the sense that a prostitute can press charges for failure to pay as it is still considered an immoral act for which no legal contract can be concluded. So she has to hire the services of an enforcer.

And most of the girls doing it are foreigners from Asia or Eastern Europe who are obviously being somehow forced or manipulated into it. I wish to be no part of that, either.

All this is why decriminalization, as opposed to legalization, is not really an answer. It allows the business to be conducted openly but leaves those involved with no protection from trafficking and exploitation. Prostitution is fully legal, though highly regulated, in a few places.

You should feel safe here because most cases are work (not hotels) and church clusters, but take care. And we never revoked the indoor mask requirement, so be prepared for that.

Yes, please. On Kauai we had about 1.5 years of relatively few cases and lost only 2 people. In the past 5 weeks, we lost 7 more people and the rate of infection has skyrocketed. (For us. It’s a small community.)

You should feel safe here because most cases are work (not hotels) and church clusters, but take care. And we never revoked the indoor mask requirement, so be prepared for that.

We do have some Qnuts who occasionally protest, but since so many are now sick, I doubt you will encounter them.

Kauai is by far is still the safest island to visit.

A girlfriend and I have been discussing a trip to Kauai for several years now. Pre-pandemic, it was postponed because of her serious health issues, which remain ongoing. But maybe next year. My late husband and I visited Hawaii once — we saw the Big Island and Maui but never made it to Kauai. Would love to see it.

Wasn’t the post meant to be snark based on the Candace claim that blacks were freed by whites? I don’t think she made any comment about Toussaint Louverture.

Of course she didn’t. She probably doesn’t even know who he was.

Whites only “led” the fight against slavery in the sense that most of the blacks involved in it were murdered.

Again, companies can be legal persons but THEY ARE NOT PEOPLE.

They have no souls or moral nature, they exist to make money. If they cease to make money, they cease to exist.

Single-owner or family-owned companies can closely reflect the values of the people in charge but there is still a big distinction between them and the organization itself.

Our synagogue’s Torah came from a Nazi collection intended to be a museum exhibit to an extinct race.

Both my daughters celebrated their Bat Mitzvahs reading from that Torah.

The Encyclopedia of Southern Jewish Life tells a tale about the small community: During WWII we were an important Air Corps training area, with a vast temporary military population. The 50 or so ladies of the congregation did a seder for 1000 soldiers, with work from the German POWs from our camp. (The camp buildings are still there—an indoor flea market complex.)

For some odd reason I remember Marc Maron interviewing a couple of Jewish celebrities from Oklahoma at different times (can’t remember who). His reaction was of course, “what? Omaha?” And the response was that Jewish refugee rescue organizations tried to disperse the population of refugees so that they all weren’t concentrated in NY and the east coast. I could be misremembering.

re: #181 No Malarkey!

I don’t know why I keep going to that site. A lot of it is the sheer schadenfreude, I guess. What kills me is that with most of the stories where the people die, there is rarely a call to get vaccinated to avoid that fate. It’s like if they pretend their loved one didn’t commit suicide by COVID, the whole pandemic isn’t real.

We had some people over this weekend and the anti-vax mindset came up. One of our guests did the whole “I don’t understand why people won’t get the shot” thing; she’s vaxxed and considers herself a feminist, but I think she was doing the “I don’t get it” dance for the benefit of her Navy vet husband. Not sure how he votes, but he is a big both-sider fan.

I did not want to start a soapbox lecture, as everyone was over to meet the new puppy (Brunch with Boudreaux), but I did point out that the spreadnecks belong to a specific party and follow a specific ideology. The conversation shifted after that, but I not sure I had anything to do with it. Just exhausted of this “I don’t get it” confusion about anitvaxxers.

Slavery has been around for thousands of years, international networks of slave trading for almost as long.

Abolition movements didn’t really start up until the eighteenth century, although there was some earlier opposition. Yes, that was in Europe (in the kind of intellectual climate we’re now enduring, I suppose I have to note that the Europeans who were abolitionists and the Europeans who were slave traders were different groups of people occupying the same countries and historical periods). Also in the new United States, where attempts to abolish slavery began with the revolution, if not before.

This one-line twitter nonsense about lengthy and complex historical movements is part of the dumbing down of America. The proper response to twitter troll one-liners is, “You are full of shit.

No, it isn’t some sort of magical incantation.

However, as the granddaughter and current owner of In-N-Out noted to the Christian Post, she expanded on what her grandfather did by adding more verses to more products.

When a Christian openly displays their faith like a phylactery in their products, my first assumption is that they also donate to causes and politicians who directly oppose my rights or those of others.

In-N-Out directly donates to Republican candidates.

As the GOP directly opposes women’s rights and my religious freedom, they go in the same bin as Chik-fil-A as far as I am concerned. If they are going to donate to the Fascist Party, I’ll take my business elsewhere (not hard since they aren’t here but I didn’t go to one In-N-Out when I was visiting California).

Left-Leaning Fast Food Fans Lose Appetite After In-N-Out Burger Donates To California Republicans (Fortune, August 30, 2018).

“A summer that began with plunging caseloads and real hope that the worst of Covid-19 had passed is ending with soaring death counts, full hospitals and a bitter realization that the coronavirus is going to remain a fact of American life for the foreseeable future,” the New York Times reports.

“Vaccination rates are ticking upward, and reports of new infections are starting to fall in some hard-hit Southern states. But Labor Day weekend bears little resemblance to Memorial Day, when the country was averaging fewer than 25,000 cases daily, or to the Fourth of July, when President Biden spoke about nearing independence from the virus.”

“Instead, with more than 160,000 new cases a day and about 100,000 Covid patients hospitalized nationwide, this holiday feels more like a flashback to 2020.”

As Anymouse stated earlier, there seems to be a big overlap between that group and the ones who are actively trying to impose their religious views on the non-religious or differently religious.

After a Catholic upbringing and the Clampet Crusade for Christ goombahs in college really put me off Christianity, it took me a long time to run into Christians who quietly live their faith without being preachy or demonstrative about it. They did a lot to show me there can be a positive side to it.

Just a reminder that Dave Daubenmire’s son Zachary, an adult living at his father’s house, was looking at child porn. Zachary graduated from law school and wanted to sit the state bar. The Ohio state supreme court said NOPE and the earliest Zack could sit for the state bar (and this was in 2013) was July 2018, after his probation was up. I check every now and then (and I checked again) and Zack Daubenmire has still not been registered with the Ohio state supreme court.

Wikipedia has photographs of the original Amber Room, along with a replica built in a collaboration between West Germany and the Soviet Union started in 1979 and only completed in 2003.

Many mysteries have surrounded the Amber Room, including speculation that the Soviet Party Secretary Khrushchev had the Königsberg Castle destroyed despite world outcry to hide that the Soviet Union had destroyed the Amber Room in the attack on Königsberg and its castle.

I’ve heard that as well - that the Red Army inadvertently destroyed the Amber Room during the Battle of Königsberg. Personally, I think that’s the most likely scenario, but I’d be happy to be proven wrong.

Carl’s Jr. is also in the list I posted above.

That list is from a Christian site which notes the companies they list are openly Christian and conservative and this is why you should support them.

And not-strictly news Website comments. As a Deep State Operative over at Wonkette, banhammering trolls that look suspiciously of Russian origin seems to be something I do every time I log in.

Thank you for your service.

I did that kind of work back in the early 2000s, but back then it was mostly home-grown fruitcakes, spammers & goatse trolls.

I’d take a turn if you ever need help, although I suspect I’d probably need some mental health counseling after a couple of weeks of weeding out the freaks on a provocative site like Wonkette.

Does In ‘n Out include Ephesians 6:5 among their promo Bible verses, or is that just for employees?

Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ.

How about Colossians 3:22?

Slaves, in all things obey those who are your masters on earth, not with external service, as those who {merely} please men, but with sincerity of heart, fearing the Lord.

It’s not that these people are pathetic, it’s that they are dangerous, spreading lies and disinformation, up to their death. His original assertion that survival would prove that the danger is false is truly dangerous, but certainly in line with Rand Paul and others who vocally diminish the effect of this disease on the human body and on our society.

How Safe Is Your Tattoo Ink? (Web MD)

Tattoo ink has been linked to heavy metals, carcinogens, and bacterial infections.

The FDA has not paid much attention to tattoo ink in the past, but they are now.

I guarantee that guy had no idea what’s in the ink.

Apple Strudel is in the oven. There is way too much for just me & Zed. Everyone gets a piece!

I have to pace myself in holiday prep because if I overdo it, PAIN RESULTS (as I found out last night, ugh). Being old sucks.

I’m almost done, though. All that’s left is potato kugel and roasted sweet potatoes. I decided not to make a sweet noodle kugel because Zed is diabetic, we will probably end up not eating it, we don’t really even need it.

Most people make sweet potatoes smothered in marshmallows and honey 🤢. I just slice in half, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt, pepper and herbs.

You know that almost all these people spewing bullshit have been vaccinated. I’m sure there are some true believers but most of them? Vaccinated.

The one good thing is their grift will have a much smaller pool of suckers to support them.

Tattoo ink has been linked to heavy metals, carcinogens, and bacterial infections.

The FDA has not paid much attention to tattoo ink in the past, but they are now.

I guarantee that guy had no idea what’s in the ink.

I wanted to get a tattoo after my dad died, to honor him, but my doctor told me that was a bad thing to do as I am diabetic, since it would be like having a permanent semi-infection under the skin. So no tattoo. I never thought about the metals content of tattoo ink, although I should have, since I do know that a lot of artist paints/pigments are dangerous, such as your various cadmium colors, flake (lead) white, and cobalt blue. (Also, people who use dry pastels need to be wearing a respirator and run a blower system in their studios because that dust is nasty and you don’t want that in your lungs.)

I’m glad the FDA is taking a look at tattoo ink, although I’m surprised the state of California hasn’t been all over it with their Prop 65 law.

I wish it could be purely Darwinian and just remove the idiots, but God knows how many other people they infected on their way to the permanent dirt cellar.

This thought literally weighs on my mind daily. It’s not openly stated, but they’re biological suicide bombers with a heavy Christian-fascist streak.

I geniunely fear that by this time next year, these ignorant motherfuckers will help evolve a super-Covid bug that will be resistant to any vax. Lately, I’ve been waking up thinking that we’re well on our way to another Black Plague with a genuine worldwide breakdown in society; basically The Walking Dead minus the zombies. Between fucking cops and medical personnel refusing to vax up, and the pressure being put on our medical infrastructure, this could all go sideways really quickly.

On that note, Happy Labor Day, I guess.

re: #172 Anymouse 🌹🏡😷

There are a few individual Jewish graves in our village-owned cemetery (we have socialised death in my town), which get an exception from the cemetery board about leaving things behind at graves (notably visitation stones).

While the cemetery board routinely removes items left at graves, they leave the visitation stones alone.

Here’s a famous example of that for a great man who is buried in the Home of Peace Cemetery in East Los Angeles. And I will admit that several of my pals go with me on Christmas Day to honor him.

Mask up and be polite; the island folks are in a bad way with respect to the virus.

.re: #203 Lani

Yes, please. On Kauai we had about 1.5 years of relatively few cases and lost only 2 people. In the past 5 weeks, we lost 7 more people and the rate of infection has skyrocketed. (For us. It’s a small community.)

Kauai is by far is still the safest island to visit.

My nephew is stationed in Hawaii — he has twin 6-year-olds and a 3-year-old, and his wife is due in early October. My (fully-vaxxed) sister and brother-in-law are planning to go over and help out for awhile. They don’t expect to do much touristing, but are worried that travel bans might go in before then.

I don’t blame the state for wanting to limit exposures, though. Damned virus is screwing up so much, with the enthusiastic help of so many covidiots.
